salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad, wa ala he was sabe as your marine about. So today inshallah will be our last segment of the series the best and the worst series. And the reason bringing this to a close is because of Hamidullah, we have covered many a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the best of the people, or the worst of the people the best actions, the worst actions. And the best place the best time we've caught. We've covered many a hadith like this today in sha Allah, the last Hadith I want to share with you is regarding a very

00:01:01 --> 00:01:49

important topic that we all should try to exhibit and try to practice in our life. And that is a zoo hood. And the word zoo hood can be translated as indifference. Some people have a translated as detachment, some people have translated as asceticism, and so forth, but the word Zohar, in my, my understanding, and the best way to explain this is detachment. So how do we understand detachment from this dunya? How do we understand detachment from the things that we have and so forth? So first of all, is that let's try to understand this. Zoho does not necessarily mean that there is complete detachment from this dunya the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was known to be a zealot he

00:01:49 --> 00:02:35

has heard in his life. Yet someone says that well, he married nine wives. Isn't that not? Isn't that against detachment of this dunya you have people like Solomon, salaam, he had control over the jinns, he could speak to the animals. Not only that, but Allah subhanaw gave him so much in terms of this dunya does that mean that he was against Zoho and so forth? Or there was no zone in his life? So we have we have this misunderstanding that Zoho means complete detachment from this world and that is wrong. So the question is that what is the meaning of Zod and as Imam Muhammad Muhammad Muhammad Allah Allah He reported from a Muslim Hola, hola, Annie Rahmatullah Ali, that to renounce

00:02:35 --> 00:03:18

the world, to renounce the world, and everything that does exist in the world, and to say that it is forbidden for me to take this. Now, there are things in this dunya that Allah has made permissible and there are things that are May Allah has made impermissible, that things are impermissible, of course we leave them but Zaha does not necessarily mean that the things that are permissible, I don't take them either. It that is not what it means. Zod means that whatever that we have there still none of that is in my heart. Because I may have dunya in my heart in my hand, but in my heart I have who I have Allah subhanho wa Taala in my hand I may have dunya but what's in my heart, the

00:03:18 --> 00:03:59

akhirah is in my heart. And this is why the word zeal hood has been explained by so many orlimar in so many different ways. But the way Imam Muhammad Muhammad Allah Allah He explains his Zohar. I want to quickly share that with you he said that XO hood is first of all a spectrum is not just one particular characteristic that a person has that then a person is considered as a side. There are three things that he mentioned that are a sign of Zod in one's life. The very first thing that a person he stays away from the prohibitions, and even if I am Muhammad, Allah Allah he says that this is the lowest level of Zod and this is something that's part of our deen. If Allah has made

00:03:59 --> 00:04:40

something prohibited, then we should stay away from it completely. The second thing he said is abandoning that which Allah subhana wa Taala has made halal. Now there are things that Allah has made halal, and what eventually what happens is when we go for those those things so much in this dunya then the love of those things, they replaced the love of Allah subhana wa Taala and the heart so if a person he takes those things, but at the same time he has Allah in his heart, at the at the forefront of everything, then this person he has the HUD and the last thing is abandoning that which will take him away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala a person wants to start a

00:04:40 --> 00:05:00

business for example. Now there's a lot of hard work that goes into a business or you want to start pursuing a certain kind of lifestyle or you want to pursue a career and so forth. Now if you know that that will take you from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala then we have to be very careful of that once again, nothing wrong in

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

pursuing that, but not at the expense of our deen. This is also part of zoo hood. Now what do we get out of zoo hood, the Prophet said Allah who I assume that all of this is a live Hadith. But the owner they have mentioned very clearly that this is a very beautiful message nonetheless. And that is that the Prophet sallallahu is some he says that when you perform Zod for whatever exists in this dunya meaning that I show Oh Allah, the dunya is all around me, that dunya is all around me. But Oh Allah, even though yes, I use this dunya to take care of my knees, I use this dunya to take care of my family and so forth. But Oh Allah, you are still in my heart, then this will bring the love of

00:05:41 --> 00:06:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will love you. Today we want Allah to love us. And we want people to love us too. We always want this. And there's nothing wrong in having that in this hadith, even though I said earlier is the eighth. But nonetheless, the orlimar have explained this hadith and they have said there is absolutely fine to use this hadith in terms of encouragement to apply Zohar in our life. And he says so if you apply Zod from this dunya Allah will love you. And if you apply Zod from what people have mean that you're not always worried about what people have, and you're trying to attain this and I'm trying to attain that, that the prophecy says that the people will

00:06:20 --> 00:07:02

love you because today when I see that a person wants to be connected to me because purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not because of what I have, that eventually you're gonna like that person better because that friendship is based on real is based on real motive is based on the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is based on not something that is superficial or something that is artificial and so forth. So this is why that friendship will last and people will love that person who does not show attachment too much to what they have. Finally, last thing I will say is if you see a person who has mashallah a big house, or person who has a lot of money, and a person and

00:07:02 --> 00:07:42

because there are people who say, Oh what this person has, he doesn't have you heard I was a HUD in my life. First of all is please keep in mind is that you and I are not in the place of judge anyone. Allah will decide who's Zahid and who's not as I have who has heard in their life and who does not have Zod that's not for me and for you to decide. We cannot look at someone and say they don't have the hood. Let Allah decide that what Allah wants from us is to apply the hood in our life. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us from amongst the Xia He then those who applies the hood in their life and mutable Allah mean this akmola Hey assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
