Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim in Hamden, in that enough meadow and Ganga when it's so subtle when I was in agony and killed all the unforeseen elements, the IDI Nina may have been a level for them.
Either Hey, Lola Hola, hola, Federica
Mohamad Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira
call in one day for a MANOVA Yes. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Allah Al Karim Allah benarasi Levine and yet our dedicated dunya and akhira.
I'm about a Canadian icon
in 19, oh, by the
way that has never existed for China history.
So by the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. We shall now we'll begin with the text of alkali, the lava. After two days of having an introduction to the hidden sherek and introduction to the biography of the Rahim Allah Tada, we are now officially getting into the text. So whoever doesn't have a copy of the text, can get one from Sachi Allahu taala, I recommend everyone to have a copy of the text to at least you can follow along. And I know the text is in Arabic. So try to understand as much of it as you can, and I'll be doing a translation of it as well. So you can pick up those words that you don't understand.
So to take the translation of the first portion of the text, the shaker himolla, stated, In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of mercy, I ask Allah, the noble Lord of the great throne, that he be a protector in this world and the Hereafter, and that he makes you blessed wherever you are, and that he makes you from those people that when given are thankful when tested are patient, and when they say they repent. Indeed, these are the keys to happiness.
You see, this small introduction is probably one of the most concise, yet explicit introductions I've ever come across these small three lines that the sacred Allah mentions over here is something that encompasses so many meanings and lessons that literally we could spend all of today just driving lessons from this introduction.
And as we took his biography, you would see that it says Rahim, Allah Tada. That he would be a lot of the times he would summarize the books of syphilis of the thing and the books of CS Rahim Allah who tada and this very introduction is actually taken from one of the books that have no Allah. This introduction is actually taken from a Chinese book, Allah, Allah. And Allah will say there's only the books that I wrote,
pertaining to the avatar of the day and then Amendment says that a Muslim is to say, during the day and the night, so they think Rahim Allah He starts off with the similar manner.
Now Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as the Sunnah of his prophet alayhi wa salatu salam. So you see in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala begins the pursuit of the Quran with so society has the first eye and so society has is the best mother or the Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So this is the son of Allah, Allah that He began the Quran with his first words with the smaller fan of him. And likewise, when you go through the Quran, you'll see that every single surah starts with this melodic minor he will be accepting exception of which surah
Exactly. So at the Toba is the only tool in the Quran that doesn't begin with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Some of the scholars have stated that this is due to the simple fact that pseudo Toba is actually a continuation of servitude and obviously there's a difference of opinion but there seems to be the popular opinion or love with Santa Ana. And we mentioned that this is also the Sunnah of the prophet of Allah Subhana Medina.
And we see this in the fact that when he posits a love it was Selim wrote his letter to her Oculus,
which is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari. You guys can go back to get the whole letter. But he starts off the letter with this melodic minor Rahim, from Muhammad, the slave of Allah and His Messenger, to hierarchy with the leader of the woman. This is how the prophets of Allah Hanyu, Selim started off his letter to harass us, he started off with an announcement of him. And likewise, you take the positive Sunday 9am and the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions a letter that he sent to the office of the Queen of Sheba. And in that letter, the person who's reading a letter to Bill Pease, he or she says, in the home in Sulaiman inaho Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim that the letter that came
from Solomon, it starts off with this
Manila Manila. So that's why you see that the best mela is actually mentioned 114 times in the Quran that we make an economic insert it's over, right? So for every surah there is a Bismillah with a set as soon as it's over, so that makes it 113. But when you add add on that extra Bismillah that sound in, so it's a number that makes it 114.
So now, what is the best Mullah actually need? Well, and what are the benefits of the best mela? Firstly, to break down the linguistics behind the best mela
the best mela is made up of the bat, which is known as a hopper job. Right and hopper jar is the equivalent of a preposition in the English language. So, what a preposition is, is a part of a word that when it is alone, it has no meaning. But when it is joined with something, it has a meaning. So over here, the bar is joined to the word itself. Right? And it says in the Arabic language needs the name. And then it goes Bismillah the name of the name of Allah With the name of Allah.
And then it describes the last time he was animating.
So which are practically thing is with the name of Allah, Allah who is Eros mana Rahim. And now, this is a sentence that is missing some sort of information. Right? So it's missing a cover over here. And that cover is again, it's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. And what we mean by this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala left it blank, so you can apply it to all situations. So when you're about to read, you don't have to say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Akira, or Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Or either it begins right? Or you don't have to do any of this kind of with Allah left it blank so that whatever action you're doing will automatically be known that this is what you're
intending to do.
So that's what the monarchy means. Now let's look at the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that are actually mentioned in the plasma, the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is mentioned in deduction, Allah. Now the word Allah, according to the great linguist, a seagull, like he mentions that Allah is actually composed of two things. And that is
ILA and what this means is the Lord, right, some of the scholars of the past has stated that the name of ma is not composed of anything, but it's bothering me, meaning that it is an original name that is not composed of anything, but another group went to the opinion that it is composed of two things and Isla, meaning the one that is worshipped, right. And this is also the opinion of sacred Islam. If you say Nia Rahim Allah Allahu Allahu taala. Now we mentioned that Allah Allah that Allah is composed of Allah, meaning the one who is worshipped. Even OKC Rahim Allah is the fear of source and Sasha. He mentions that Allah is also the one album, meaning it is the Greatest Name of Allah
subhana wa Tada. The name that when Allah subhanho wa Taala is asked with this name, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not reject the dua of the superheater there are other scholars who have stated that the mon album of Allah subhana wa tada is actually an halal for you. But this is a minority opinion. And the first opinion seems that it is Allah, Allahu Allah, Allah.
Then we see the names that are mentioned or Rosman or Rahim. Now our watchmen in our him are actually derivative from the attribute of mercy. They come from the word aurasma. And that's why you see the same three letters are present in both of them, the raw, the heart and the mean, the present in both of them. Right. So what is our last name? And what is our Rahim actually named? Rosman is a more general term, and that is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Most Merciful, the one who encompasses all Mercy is actually a form of what they call Bulava, or a form of exaggeration and expression that Allah subhanaw taala is the essence of mercy. And that's why you see in the Hadith
of the prophets of Allah honey would send them that Allah subhana wa Taala has 100 mercies, right, one of which he sent it down upon this earth, in which we are merciful to one another, a mother loves a child, and we take care of one another. And Allah subhanaw taala has saved us 99 mercy for the Yom Okayama where he shall be merciful to all of his slaves.
So now if it was just one Merci de las panatela sent down upon this dunya and this is what has caused us to be much more towards one another. You can actually imagine how merciful Allah subhanho wa Taala is on that day, no mosquitoes Allah shower us with His blessings in this dunya and in the afternoon. Now moving on to Rahim. Rahim is not as encompassing as Irishman, or Rahim is actually being restricted. Allah subhanaw taala mentions in this ayah to the Quran will mean urashima so Allah subhanaw taala is restricting this name
To the believers, so let's find what Allah will show a particular mercy to the believers in the Ashura. So in this dunya, Allah subhanho wa Taala is a rough man to everyone, like I must note Allah grants rain and food to the believers and non believers. And he grinds eight degrees says all the blessings of families and housing and all of this. So this is how we see the attribute of a man being imitated by the attribute of our him as something with the social status that is specific with the Ashura which is particular for the Muslims, that Allah, Allah will show us extra mercy on Yamaha piano and in the Acura detailer.
So now, what are some of the benefits of saying this man out of nothing? Like why do we start off with it?
Firstly, we're going to take for many reasons, you like to write this down in some activity, keep it as reminders for yourself. And you know, when you teach other people or advise other people, you can give them this reminder, the importance and the benefit of saying Bismillah Firstly, the first benefit is that you're following the Sunnah of Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger, we mentioned that all the time with Allah begins the Quran, and the very word with the smilla. And when you pop it to the last minute, send them began his letters, he would begin with this Milla.
Secondly, the second benefit of this is that you're reminding yourself
of the purpose of this act. And that even though it's actually in the essence of MOBA, which in essence, are permissible, the likes of eating and sleeping, and drinking all these axes in themselves out permissible, they're not absolutely digest. But when you say Bismillah, and you remember last time with Allah, and you do them for less than what Allah they can become activated by the inverse, you can become rewarded for them. So by saying, Bismillah you reminding yourself that you want to do this act for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Thirdly, it is an implicit deny that you make them to Allah. And what we mean by this is that when you're saying, Is this the last you asking Allah Subhana Allah, oh, Allah, this action that I'm doing. I'm asking you to grant me, Sofia and Baraka, I'm asking you to grant me success and blessing in this action that I'm doing. right to ask you Allah Subhana Allah to bless the passion of yours. And fourthly, the fourth benefit, and the last one that we want to be mentioning, is that if you get into the habit of saying Bismillah, in all your actions, the permissible of them, and rebuy that before the exam as well. Eventually, when the time does come that you're about to perform that
haraam act, you will automatically be in the habit of saying Bismillah so you unconsciously say differently, and this will serve you as a reminder that even when you're about to do that haram act, you stop yourself from doing it, when you unconsciously say Bismillah because you get in a habit, so that it will actually serves as a reminder once you get into the habit of seeing it.
Now moving on to the next line, the chef Rahim Allah Allah He says, I shall Allah Allah Karim Rahman RC Levine,
Allah katatonia will ask Allah
right. So we see that he is asking Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah Karim is mentioning the attribute and the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Kareem and what this means is the most genuine, right? And he goes, I shall Allah hi Corinne arrabal arcilla in the Lord of the mighty throne. So now what is this throne that Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about? And this the chef is asking Allah, Allah by this throne that the chef Rahim Allah is talking about is the throne of Allah subhanaw taala you'll find that the throne is mentioned in various places, as well as in the center, and the sooner the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam informs us that the throne of Allah
subhanho wa Taala is actually the largest of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Below it are angels who carry the throne of Allah subhanaw taala and the other angels which is specific just for that, so we can see how great this loan actually is. And this term actually,
is a term which is actually taken from the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says at the end of October, in the left is
the interval of Apple has to be Allahu La Ilaha Illa who Allah tala la cultura bolasie Levine, so almost panatela from Cisco himself. So now the question arises, why would he asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah by his names and attributes over here?
In Islam, there's the concept of tawassul I'm sure we all know what our soul is. This is a concept which is very well known in the Muslim world, but also referring to the city and the innovative practices of it. One of the ways
Have a listen, I was gonna have performance question. And what we mean by torture is by seeking a closest Allah subhanaw taala a closeness that will increase the chances of our eyes being accepted, that will increase the chances of us being from those people that Allah subhanaw taala loves, and protects. So one of the ways that our listeners and I did this, is that when we supplicate to Allah subhana wa Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah, by his name, and attributes, and we see that indeed, while the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when he used to say, I look at the policemen who Allah, that I asked you buy every name that you have, and it was due to the fact that the prophets of Allah
Almighty was Selim was teaching the Muslims a way to have the title of their being answered, to increase the chances, He will teach them to ask Allah, Allah by his names and attributes.
So then the tape goes on to say, and makes it too hard for for the readers, and so a lot of cydonia will asherah and what this means is numerous panels, Allah grant you wilaya in this dunya and the Ashura and what this will actually is, is the companionship of Allah subhanaw taala and the protection of Allah subhanaw taala. So in this dunya, Allah subhanaw taala will grant us protection, and he will grant us victory, and he'll grant us many, many blessings. This is what the will of Allah subhanaw taala in the dunya and in the Acura, it means to be saved from the Hellfire and to be entered in
then it continues on with the Doha alika Mubarak an alien and maybe make you blessed wherever you may be. And as I do that, you see that as you eat salad salad, as he made for himself when he was in the in the cradle, if you refer to as the millennium, in the 31st, verse, Allah subhanaw taala co Italia, I think rajani Mubarak and aina moku that Allah subhanaw taala You make me blessed, wherever I may be. And what it means to be blessed is that you're always benefiting people. Right? So if you're in a situation where Haram is taking place, so you are the one will go and prevent the harm or the harm, especially in a place where God is taking the place. You will be the one who actually
initiates the good and will lead the people towards the good. This is what it means to be blessed. Wherever you go. So you see the thief Rahim Allah Allah, he actually has a genuine concern for the reader. That's why he starts off this text or this book by Nick into alpha reader.
Then he says raha Rahim, Allah husana goes on to say that Allah can imagine either ot etc. And may Allah subhanaw taala make you of those people that when they are given, they are thankful. Now it's in Hanalei Levine, why would you say sorry, Mama mentioned this, right? He mentions it at the end, that these three keys these three next portions that are coming up, are the actual keys to happiness. And that is these two these three concepts, that when you are given, you're thankful when you are try your patient, and that when you send your pentacle, that success and happiness lies in these three concepts. And inshallah, as we discuss these concepts, you'll understand why these three
concepts are the sources of happiness. So the first concept is that when you are given, you're thankful.
There are two situations that can take place, when I must have what Allah bestows a blessing upon us. One, either we are thankful and praising Allah, Allah or we are rejecting and not thanking Allah subhanaw taala what is the consequences of each of them in thanking Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala says so did Rahim in the sentence. If we're in Saqqara, Toma as he then know that if you are thankful to Allah subhanaw taala or you throw, show some sort of thankfulness, then Allah subhanho wa Taala, will increase your blessings. So in thanking Allah subhanaw taala for his blessings, Allah subhanho wa Taala actually increases you in them. So now, let's just say you're
having financial difficulty, or you're having problems with your wife, or you're having problems, any in any other aspect of your life. One way of increasing the blessings in them and Indian being increased in it is saying, Oh Allah, I thank you for the blessing of grace that you have granted me or Allah, I thank you for the blessing of granting me a pious and righteous wife. These are the ways that you increase the blessing in them by specifically thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. For them, as this is what Allah subhanaw taala means that if you think about China with China, you will increase you in them. Now, the consequence of not thinking of us China with China is the exact
opposite. There, if you refrain from thanking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take those blessings away from you. Right? And we see this in the Hadith of the three people from the Bani Israel who attested by the angel, that there was a man who had leprosy right a man
Who was bought? And what was the third month phone? Anyone remember?
He was blind, right? So I must have sent an angel to them. And he Allah subhanaw taala tell told this angel to ask them, you know what would be the most beloved thing to you. And then each of them said that if I was really relieved of my affliction, I would be the happiest person. So let's find out what Allah made the blind man able to see the man who had leprosy naked skin that was nice and beautiful. And the nine who was bought Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him next year. Then on top of that, Allah subhanaw taala sent the angel and said, Hashem, what type of position they want. So when I said I want to evaluate, the other one said, I wanted a value of cows. And the other one said, I
want a valley of camels.
So after this, I must find out I wanted to check these people to see how they recognize the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right? Were they going to be thankful slaves, odd people who weren't going to be thankful.
So then the angel came to the first man, the man who was born. And he said, I asked you by the ones who granted you this beautiful hair, that you helped me, because I am a traveler, and you know, I lost everything I've had, I actually, by the way, who granted you these blessings, to help me. So then the mind goes, I don't know what you're talking about all these buttons and hide it for my own self. So then, the man he made this is the angel who is acting in the disguise of the night, he said, mela May the one who carry all this divide, where you have everything here 22. So the men when the man went back to a state or the board, and he was deprived of his work, then the same thing
happened with a man who had leprosy, the man he rejects the buttons of Allah subhanaw taala, he didn't help this traveler. So I must confess Allah didn't have leprosy again. And now the last man who is blind, he said, it was only Allah subhanho wa Taala that granted me this blessing, and how can I not be thankful and help his fellow creatures, so anything that you see from this valley from the Valley of cameras, then take whatever you need from your journey? So then the angel said, Indeed, I am an angel here that we're here to test you. And Allah has become angry at you to companions, and because become happy with you. So now the showerhead from this hadith is that two
main concepts, the first concept is that if you're not thankful for the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah subhanaw taala will take them away from you. Secondly, the thankfulness is not restricted to just saying and hamdulillah it's not just restricted to saying Oh, ally, thank you, but rather it encompasses that you use what Allah subhana wa tada gave you for a good holiday. permissible means that you shouldn't be using the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala for something Haram. So Allah subhanaw taala gives you the ability to run and he made you strong, it doesn't mean that you should go and start robbing banks know why this is not how you should use the blessings of
Allah subhanho wa Taala. But rather, you should help the Muslim community when you're building massages, whenever you're in school, you have the ability, the type of skills, you can use them to help the Muslim community. This is one of the ways that we are appreciative of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala not only with our tongues, but with our actions as well. So next time, you see that man, or that Muslim person who is you know, shocking poverty and he says, he'll carry it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you know, buy me a drink, I'm really thirsty. Remember this today? The last panel was Allah granted you money. And he is the one that gratitude to you. If he wants to
take it away from you, you can do it in an instant. So this might be a testament Allah subhanho wa Taala testing you if you're absolutely thankful for the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon you
know, this as Rahim Allah he goes with a petroleum Saba, that is he is tested, he is patient. Now, it is a fact and a reality of life. That Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to test each and every one of us must know what Allah says in Surah Baqarah Well, I never know when a minute Kofi was up when oxygen allamani when it was Mr. Raja Sheila savarin and Medina is asaba Tomasi, Bhutan, call in Allah He
says, For assurity, you shall be tested, then Allah, Allah goes on to marry, to narrate and mentioned the various ways that we are tested. We are tested in the loss of life that we will all have will all have relatives, who at one time or another pass away, whether they be the most beloved people to us, from our parents, our spouses, our children, or someone who is even distant, maybe a long lost cousin or something, I must find what Allah
then Allah subhanaw taala will tell us in our worst, at times we'll have money and at times we will be poor. Then at other times, Allah subhanaw taala will test us in the way we feel. Sometimes we will feel happy and energetic and other times
will be sad and very lethargic in meaning that we won't want to be of those people who do actually just want to relax, stay at home be what they call us potatoes. This is what how Allah subhanaw taala tests us in our emotions. So these are the various ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala tests us. So he says Rahim Allah is actually gonna do that may make you those people that when you are tested, that you are patient. And you see that these tests of Allah subhanho wa Taala, are actually a form of purification, deposits, Allah lohani was sent and said in a Hadith, which is mentioned by ina mentality, that the prophets of Allah Hi nice to them said in the law is I have the common internet
home, so nobody follow her radar woman shafali.
So Allah subhanaw taala, or rather His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala when he loves a nation, or a people who will test them. So those people who are satisfied and are patient, then Allah subhanaw taala is happy with them. And those people who become displeased with the father of Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala, is displeased with them. So the lessons that we derive from this hadith is that the more Eman we have, the higher we are in our worship Allah subhanaw taala, the more we shall be tested, right. So the more we begin to practice Islam, the way it was meant to be practice, the more we should expect to these tests. This
is what Allah Panama does to the people whom he loves. And this is to increase them in their characteristics as well as the human. Right. And we see this in the title of our HUD when the Manasa Cooney came to the Sahaba Raja montagnana. We said in the naza Jana osako right there indeed people have gathered to kill you, Sophia them. So then what Allah subhanho wa Taala say about them after the home, they increased in demand. Right? And what did they say? Husband, Allah, Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala is sufficient for us. And he has the best interest dealers, here's the only cars that take place, the people of demand, review it in a positive like that almost kind of a tie that he put
us in a situation and he is the one who will get us out. We just need to be patient and ask Allah subhanaw taala for success. But those people who are weakened EMA Allah subhanho wa Taala will make them displeased with the color of Allah and to certain extent that some people will actually question Allah, Allah, why did you put me in such a hardship? What did I do to deserve this pain and anguish? This is the highlight of some of the people today that they don't know why this is such a situation. But they need to realize that these things that befall us the from the evil things is either one of two things. Either it is a text from Allah subhanaw taala, to see how we are, or it is
a tribulation from Allah subhanaw taala meaning a punishment that Allah subhanaw taala is purifying us with. So in either way, it is for our benefit. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How amazing is the affair of the believer, that when he is tested and afflicted with something, he is patient, any thanks Allah, so this is good for him. And if it is something which is bad, then he is patient, and he sees the you know, the protection of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is good for him. And how good is this affair and there is no good except in the affair of the believer mean that it is only the modeling or the believers that will have this affair, that
anything that befalls him, whether it be good or bad, is in his best interest due to the fact that he's constantly remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why you see then in Venice is Allah subhanho wa Taala always says the likes of in the law, not somebody that aligns with the patient, or in the law, your head befuddling, that Allah subhana wa knows the patient. This is due to the fact that cyber edge requires strength. Right? And Allah subhanaw taala always loves the stronger believers over the weaker believers. then going on to the last part of this. This is Rahim Allah, He says what he has never done so that if he commits a sin, then he is a pentacle to Allah subhana wa
Tada. It is a reality that each and every one of us was sin, when we don't thank Allah subhanaw taala for his blessings, we are sinning and not lowering our eyes, towards the sisters walking by we are sinning and not giving our families the deal, right? We are sitting. So each and every one of us listen. And so what the prophets of Allah Hanuman to them said, Hello Eben Adam acaba was in a boon that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that all of the children of Adam, every single one of them will make mistakes. And the best of those people who make mistakes, the best of the children of Adam, or a boon, like the people who will make Toba to Allah subhanho wa Taala
So now let's take a moment. Which one of us over here doesn't want to please? China with China? Obviously, all of us want to please the last panel with Anna. So now let us reflect and look, what is one of the easiest ways to please the last panel, China. Allah's Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gave us a parable of
a parable of a man who was roaming around in the desert. And while he's in the desert, with his camera, his camera has all of his provisions and all of his belongings in it. And then he's like, let me rest under the tree, and, you know, catch up on my sleep, or just take them
while he falls asleep. That camera that had all of his possessions and belongings on it once away from him. So he wakes up, and he is in a state of total devastation. He's like, how would I survive now everything I had was on the camera, my food, my clothes, you know, my tech, my protection, everything was on it. I'm doomed, and I'm destroyed. So he went to an ultimate disappear. He was just getting very unprepared for death. And while he was in the state, all of a sudden that camera had had everything on it returned to him, and he begins to glow and he begins to smile and he becomes happy. He gets so happy that he says, Allah, you're my slave. And I knew that how happy he
was that he became like insane for those instances, that he didn't realize what he was saying. Right? And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that the happiness of this man, after having lost everything, and everything is being returned to him thereafter, is nothing compared to the happiness that Allah subhanho wa Taala feels when his slave, Lake Toba to him. So now just imagine, Toba is the light that Allah subhanaw taala has upon us, when we sin, we're breaking one of the commandments and not fulfilling one of the ways that unless I know what Donna has appointed, yet, when we seek His forgiveness, and we seek His refuge and we seek His protection, and we ask
Allah subhanaw taala with all sincerity to forgive us, Allah subhanho wa Taala actually gets happy at this. And it's not just a minute happiness, but it is a great happiness. And again, you look at the blessings are making a difference. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that there is something called a Satanist. The fact that the leaders have a stigma, and his daughter is mentioned in Sahil Bukhari that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever says this during the day and he died, when he was going to gender, and whoever says this during the night and says this, and he dies thereafter, he says go into Jenna. And this is a very simple glass
that don't that won't take you more than a couple of seconds. And that is Allahumma Antara de la ilaha illa and calacatta Nima and Abdo,
deca, deca massage like till the end of the day, is just a couple of nights. So this is something when you go home today, you can learn this applies very simple, right? It will take you a couple of minutes and I'm like, and then for the rest of your life, you can continue to say this is a promise from Allah messages from Mr. Han, he was sent him the whoever said this was emailed and has you know, is a believer piloted his life and he was to die thereafter, then Allah subhanaw taala will grant in paradise. So again, we see one of the great blessings and the direct correlation between making a ceasefire and being and in attaining the agenda of Allah subhanaw taala.
Rahim Allah ends off this introduction by saying, saying the Heidi Sonata, and one of saga, that indeed these three things are the essence are the keys to happiness. And you'll see, why does one happiness lie in this? dunya? Does it lie in having the possessions of Estonia? Does it lie in having the most beautiful of cars of houses of women have children? What is it like?
It's so funny Mahima he has some very beautiful words that he mentions in his book alfawise he said, Alex is a mess. Now nobody at a time when Napa Sonoma and Napa sauce, Samantha Hale and celiac medela woman.
Rahim Allah He says that one sufficiency and one's happiness in this dunya is directly related to his survey to determine how good of a pinata he actually is. And likewise, one deficiency and one falling short and one's not being happy is in direct relationship to his lack of servitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he who finds good lighting plays Allah and he will find something other than that. They can blame no one but himself. said no claim Rahim Allah He makes the guideline very clear that our happy
In this dunya is in the worship and servitude of Allah subhanaw taala. And you see what other servitude is there with Allah subhanho wa Taala except in one of these three things, we are constantly in one of these three situations, we are either being given by Allah subhanaw taala, that Allah subhanaw taala is always bugging us with something, or I'm a son of a dad is testing us with something. So we have to be patient. And if we're not being tested, then if the blessing from Allah subhanaw taala is giving us And likewise, if we're not being given something, we're not being tested, then we might be sinning. Right? So maybe Allah finally testing as soon as sin. So mankind
is always in one of these three situations. And that's why you see any variance is in the Quran. And we just take a sample that one of them is in
a mosque I know Dinah says, woman I mean, si at the moment, I need to find your hand that means that that in our own sir wahoo amino banana here now who happen by Eva, that almost China China says that he who performs a good deed, whether he be male or female plus anodizing is equating us over here. Well, who knows, and he is a believer, then we shall bestow upon him a good life. But I know he Amna hyah Tompa so if you want a good life in this dunya come with a man and come with action. And if you don't want a good life, then Allah subhana wa tada is telling you how to get rid of it. And which person in the right mind wouldn't want that good life. So if you don't want a good life, and we seek
refuge from a wanton desire, abandon the mind and abandon your good deeds, and you will have that life of supplication. And this is the other example that we see. And so far, that we've mentioned previously, as well, that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about the scenario on Yama, piano, and he says, some of our victories are in Allahumma isetan danka, Vanessa who Yamanaka Matsuyama kolarov De Lima Hassani, punto de Sierra College educated Chi to NASA, NASA waka and you can do
so much with Allah is giving us a scenario of the oma PMO when a man will come and Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that those who turn away from my remembering, they shall have a life of congestion not only in this dunya but in the Acura as well. When I show who Yama Yama, Yama and we shall gather them on the omo piano as someone or people who are blind and they will say Oh my Lord, why have you guided me as someone who is blind when I was able to see then Allah will say to them today the guy that is Vanessa Nikita, that just our II came to you, and you neglected them and became this of them. So today You shall be neglected and forgotten as well. So again, this is what Allah subhanaw
taala tells us about the forgetting of the man and remind forgetting Allah subhanaw taala that it leads to nothing but hardship and grief in this dunya and the Acura
and that was the introduction of the Rahim Allah who tada for his reseller. So now moving on to the next part.
This genuinely this next part is referring to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and what is this worship and so on and so forth.
So, Allah subhanho wa Taala
the shaker Rahim Allah Tada. He says over here, yeah, shut up Allah who live it. And then honey she attended let Abraham and Cabo de la vida McCullough Salahuddin cannot call it Allah wa Salatu was in Nevada into ilaria Boone, so to Zarya.
So the Rahim Allah Allah is saying over here, yeah, lm is a commandment, which means know how to set up a law Who is it, that may Allah subhanho wa Taala guide you to his obedience, that indeed honey,
which is the type or the religion of Ibrahim, is that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and make the religion sincerely for him, as this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has says, I said when he says, will not sell up to Agenda when inside Allah Buddha, that I did not create mankind, except sorry I did not create the jinn and mankind except for my worship.
So the author over here, Rahim Allahu taala. is defining what worship what what it is. And what is the great Milla of Ibrahim. We all know Ibrahim Anisa Nam was known as
the father of all the prophets. And this is due to the fact that all the puppet director all came from his genealogy, right and his plugin. So from him from Ibrahim Ali salami is nine and yaku
is nine and
Have a mishap you have Yaqoob and some Yaqoob, you had use of any form of the goddess. And then from them you had Moosa and Isa, and heroin. And infamous, now you have the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So basically all the prophets that came after thereafter, came from the lineage of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So that's why he is known as India. And honey fear is as a term, which is used to refer to a Brahim on Instagram. And what honey fear actually is, linguistically, it means to be inclined to something right, when you have a natural leniency towards something. And Sharon, what it means is, well, you have a natural in currency, and currency towards the heat, and you stay away
from meaning that you hate and naturally dislikes it. So this is what you see. I mean, that's why you see during the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and prior to his time, that those people who did not commit check with Allah, they are known as the
right, or people who are Hanif, meaning that he had a natural inclination towards the heat, and he just naturally hated fidic, even though they didn't know the basis of Islam, or they didn't know what Islam was about.
So, he says that the religion of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. So now what exactly does worship mean? worship linguistically, if you were to look at it, the scholars of the language, they give a simple definition.
And that definition is the combination of love.
So everyone should be writing this down Bismillah atana.
That the definition of, you know, servitude, or Iboga, is the combination of complete love that is worshipped
while having humility and servitude towards them.
Right. This is what the scholars of language say that Reba is linguistically it is to have complete love. Right. And with that, you have complete humility, and servitude. So sometimes you see that all they have is surpluses in AD combined in our daily life, the likes of when a father shows love towards a family and children, but he's not showing them servitude and humility. Right. And, at other times,
the tabernacle King, when we go to him, you know, we'll have some sort of fear of him, we'll be afraid of what you can do, but we don't love him. So all these things that even though they're not even though some of the concepts are present, as long as not all three of them are present, it's not going to be called a data, sin to actually worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And from a linguistic perspective, you have to have complete love. You have to have complete humility, meaning you have to humble yourself in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have to have complete servitude to him.
So now what does it mean in this area? Or in light of the Quran and the Sunnah
sacred Islam is the same era him a whole lot he mentions in his book on Odia
that Ava is
its moon journey on liquidity. Now you Hippo La Jolla, Babu, Mina la Kalani when I find a VA hero to worry about in
that particular stand on this email Rahim Allah says that worship is
a comprehensive term
every single statement
that is beloved
and pleasing to Allah.
Whether it be open or hidden
This is what the secret Islam is nothing Yeah, Rahim Allah defines Riba with so basically any action that we know from the Quran and the Sunnah, that Allah subhana wa Taala shows some sort of love for all we know that Allah subhana wa Taala is pleased with it, then it automatically becomes an act of Elijah.
Now the accent Eva have two conditions as well as three pillars.
So what are the preconditions are
the preconditions are Riba to them, or Firstly, doing it solely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Right, meaning that you do this act of worship for no one except promise.
And this is why Allah subhanaw taala says
Soon enough, wanna omeo illa de abajo la meclizine Allah who deem that they will not commanded with anything except to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerely, and to make the religion for him alone. So the first condition of Elijah is that it has to be sincerely for my son, Hannah wattana alone. And if a any intention is next for someone other than Allah subhanaw taala, then this action is no and void and will not be called a bother.
The second condition of ibadah it has to be in following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning that we can't come up with a bag all with ourselves, you know, we can just say, I feel like worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. So I'm going to do 50 jumping jacks, like this is not something that we can come up with and start calling a vida, but rather a die that comes from what Allah Subhana which Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam legislated.
So, that which Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has showed us to da da da, there is Elijah, and anything other than that, will not be called the baddest. And the fool for this is became a target of Isla de la husana that is found in Bukhari and Muslim. And for those of you who are memorizing the, the outline and know where we are, it is a fifth heading and the wording of the Hadith goes Manasa Molina Hamza Malaika, and in hopes
that whoever introduces something into this affair of ours without having our seal of approval on it, so they shall be rejected. Right. And in another wording of the same Hadith man Amina Amina lays on a Marina tahara that he who who does an action that isn't in accordance to what we have come with, then this is rejected. So all of us panels Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are stipulating and stating over here, that Ada can only come with what Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger has come with. And this is why you find for doin ignore Yo, Rahim Allah tala, one of the great imams of the cellar, that when he came to the ayah in certain mode, which is which number two,
might want to just jot it down with number two, and then you can look it up on your own. He's Allah. Allah says, Leah Balu accom and Yocum Ashton Ramallah and what this means is that allow me to text you, which is which of you is best indeed. So when
Rahim Allah tala came to this ayah he said, that this means the deeds that are done correctly, and with a sincere intention,
then this deed will be accepted. But if a deed is done sincerely, yet incorrectly, it will not be accepted. And likewise, if a deed is done correctly, but insincerely it will also be rejected. Only when a deed is done correctly and sincerely would it be accepted. And sincerity means to perform a deed solely for the sake of Allah and correctly means that it is in accordance with the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah why name is Shannon. So you see that these are principles that I'm not coming up with, on my own. I'm not making them up without a senior, but rather the greatest of generations and Allah subhanaw taala have mercy upon them agreed to this. And Allah, Allah showed us this in the
Koran and in the center, that in order for any DS to be accepted, you have to have sincerity from us and Hannah with Anna and likewise, it has to be done in accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we mentioned that he bada it has conditions and colors. Those were the conditions sincerity, and Masada, the following of the Prophet sallallahu Danielson. Now what are the pillars of either
are love, fear and hope.
Love, fear and hope, are the pillars of a garden. And you see it No problem, Rahim Allah, Allah that He has, he gives the terrible of a tree of a bird. He says that the pillars of Elijah are like a bird. The head of it is love. And the two wings or fear and hope. So if there is a bird without a head, all the seats will not go anywhere. So if you can't fly, likewise, a bird without love, you will not be getting a Mustang otology right. So that a guy that without love cannot exist. And likewise, if you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and you don't have fear and hope, maybe you don't have fear of his punishment, and you're not hopeful of His mercy. You will not get that act of
worship the sun, or the goodness it deserves, meaning that you'll not be doing it to the best of your ability unless you're feeling the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as seeking the blessings and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala so you have to have hope, fear and love, and these are the pillars of a garden. We're gonna be taking a break soon so inshallah one of the brothers can wake him up Neela Tada.
So now before we actually get to the first principle of sec, the SEC Rahim Allah continues, and he says, either arasta or namaha salata, Kalia died at Santa Anita data center Elijah 10. In lonato, he cannot unknow sala de la la la la la la la hora De De De
De De De De De De
De De De La la hora.
So the sakura Hema Hola. He goes on to say in this section. So when you know that Allah created you to worship Him, they know that worship is not considered worship, except with the heat, like Salah is not an acceptable summer, except with purity. So as entered into worship, it is not accepted, just as impurity destroys purity, if it enters into it. So now the sacred himolla he's trying to make clear for us what certain tauheed are and how they relate to us. And he gives us a very clear example and terrible and that is that he is like the Hara for Salah. Let's say you want to play Salah, right? You need to make odo for it. But if you break that window with either going to the
bathroom, or passes some sort of window or anything, then that word was no longer valid. Right? So you cannot worship Allah subhanho wa Taala or you cannot pray without Voodoo. Right. And this is what how he did that. So he is that purity. And if you were to mix it with any form of impurity, then it will invalidate not only the action that you want to do, meaning the Salah that you're trying to do, but it will also invalidate the essence of that purity, which is the heat itself. So when you mix with the heat, only one of them can exist and share Kosovo. Second tauheed will never exist at one and the same time. So that is what the relationship between sahid and Serkis. And
yesterday we mentioned the categories and the categorization of sahid. And we mentioned that there are three categories of sahid. Right? That they are Provo via holo here and a smell that rubia meaning Allah subhanaw taala is one in the actions that he does. And oh here is one in the actions that he received, meaning that our worship to him, and he is one in his beautiful names and lofty attributes.
Now in breaking it down even more, you can break it down to though he which deals with the least. And so he
which deals with worship. So we have something called sahid ecology. And so he's Amelie savedata Cory, is what God believes. And this is the rubia and the agnostic. You know, there's no action actually involved in it on our behalf. And indeed, Emily is actually the data of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the Olivia Villa Tana with Allah when we worship Him alone. So then you have the likes of the Christians, right? They do that while they do their prayers. They do their fasting whenever the appropriate time God but they are coming with DITA Hayden. Emily right is coming with the accent, which
is totally incorrect. They've attributed a San Tomas Sonata, so they negated the perfect grupo de Avila tiny with Allah. And they negated the perfection of Ahmed names and attributes. Right. So in order for our actions to be protected, and our need to be protected, we have to come with both aspects of the aspect of the lease and the aspect of action. And likewise, then you see the, these heretical groups, like let's just say, the extreme Sufis, who come and start dancing in circles and circles until they get dizzy and fall. And they're like worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Like this was something that was never known to Alice Hannah without his messenger or his companions. This is
something they made it on their own. Right, but at the same time, some of them they will have the crusty belief, but there's a fee the nominee is incorrect. The letter worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala upon this guidance, so upon, so forth, so here to be correct. You have to come with both aspects.
With the belief and the action of it, and all these three will take you in action, what happens to it? What happens to the accident?
null and void. Not only is the action become null and void, but Allah subhanho wa Taala toward the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when occurred Oh hi, la Cava la Latina, leadin and in public la in
La Habra Pan Am I locked
in China with Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that it was revealed to you, and those before you that if you were to communicate with Allah subhanho, wa Taala, then your these will become null and void that every single one of them. And beside all the great benefit of this is that the prophets of Allah Han he was sent him, the man who had the greatest amount of good deeds, if his deeds could become null and void by performing sex, and obviously the public will have ideas and never did perform sick, but as a threat to him, that is his these can become null and void. Then how what are those people who don't have those good deeds, it would be even easier for Allah subhanaw
taala to render our deeds null and void after ship.
Then moving on to the last part, before the first principle, the physical hemo law which I that he says, say that out of that particular Elijah
Muhammad was sort of our Hebrew who mineralogy left enough of a hammer norica to daddy, Mama Maha Johan De La Nina has been hiding his sadaqa while he is
under economo dynasty in the La Jolla, nuestra casa de Roma Guna Danica Nina Yeshua. So the sheikh Rahim Allah He goes on to say. So if you know that when fear is mixed with worship, the worship is not accepted and destroys the action. And thus making the person acting upon this kind of worship from the people who will permanently be in the Hellfire, then you will realize that it is the most important topic for you to study. Perhaps through this study, Allah will save you from this evil SAP, meaning shellcode Allah, and concerning with Allah subhanho wa Taala has said, Indeed, Allah does not forgive that any association be made with him, but he forgives what is less than that, to
whom he was.
So now before getting into the core principles of the Shaykh Rahim, Allah Hosanna is actually telling us, why are we taking the time to study? Why is it so important to us? And as you said yesterday, the reason we're studying is not for the sake of just knowing it, but rather we're learning it for the sake of knowing it's evil and avoiding it. But the only way to avoid evil is by knowing it. And this is why we see that Allah subhana wa tada says, we can afford to live it well. It's a study
that we have explained our science and science in detail, so that the path of the criminals may be made clear that unless China without is telling us what the path of the majority mean is, so that we may stay away from it. And likewise, we have the example of the data or the Allahu anhu that he said that the companions are the Allahu taala at home. They used to ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the good. And I used to ask him about the evil, out of fear of falling into it. So the companions of the Allahu taala No, they didn't learn evil for the sake of just knowing it was right so that they may avoid it. And this is how we get that famous line of poetry from that point that we
mentioned yesterday as well, when he said Alaska shabalala sorry, Valentina. tabaqui. From a narrow qualifier on a salary, a coffee, that he said, I'm not evil, not for the sake of knowing evil, but rather to be protected from it. For he who does not know good from evil is bound to fall into it. And lastly, we take this beautiful statement of amarante Allahu taala. And who we didn't mention this yesterday, seeking justice Donis, Allah,
that Amara, the Allahu taala and who she said
younggu Iran Islam autowatch and oroton is an assassin Islam manaia Pooja Hillier,
Omar Abdullah Abdullah Al Farooq, he stated that the Pillars of Islam
The Pillars of Islam will continue to fall, pillar by pillar.
If a person is raised in Islam, but doesn't know the evils of Jamia, he said the Pillars of Islam will continue to fall pillar by pillar. If a person is raised in Islam, but doesn't know the evils of zaharia
Now if you look at the statement, what was it that made the companions of the Allahu taala home so great.
It was two key things. One was that they had the best of examples and people with them, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon whom directly revelation was revealed.
And the other thing that made them so great was that they were coming from pre Islamic the idea that they were coming from a time where the worst of people existed in a time where men and woman would speak openly, they had no shame, any time where people would worship idols that they knew could not benefit them in a time where the rich would abuse the poor by taking extreme amounts of interest. These were the time that they lived in. So they live in the best of times. And it was to find the best of times with the particular one you send them. And the worst of times, before the making all the profits of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam before his prophethood. So this is why we became the
rest of the people, they knew the best of the best, and had witnessed the worst of the worst. So they learned from all the mistakes of the evil. And likewise, they learn to the best of the best. And this is how, in order to become the best of people, not only do you have to know the good, but you have to learn how to stay away from evil as well. And this is why amarante Allahu taala, who made this profound statement.
So this is the introduction of the Rahim ozada before we actually delve into the principles of sharing, and that will actually go by pretty smoothly and quickly, because the principles are short, they're not too long, and they don't require too much explanation. So right now, these Allahu taala the pieces here, so before Salah, we're going to be eating Okay, so what we're going to do is we're going to stop right now, you will have a chance to eat and then we'll play our Salah, and then right after Salah we'll begin right away. Does anyone have a problem with that? Any? No one, five
will end up there till after a lot of us and right after that we'll begin again for some Allahumma Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salaam Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
