Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil. Hornstein ohana Stokes, when out of India human surely unforeseen elements. Dr. Medina, manga de la, la la la la la la, la, la, la la la la la la la sharika was shadow Anna Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira. But my dear brothers and sisters, Salaam Alaikum, warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

So I have another interesting story to tell you guys today.

00:00:43--> 00:01:25

I was in grade nine going to grade 10. So what year would this have been? This is probably like 95 going to 96. That's the 95 going to 96. And I was setting up my first email account, it was on Hotmail. Okay. So at that time, you know, we're going through this whole finding your Muslim identity. So I was like, You know what, let me make my email address [email protected] Lo and behold, someone had taken that email address. So I was pretty adamant on sticking out with Muslim [email protected] And they went through every single number all the way till I got to number 23. And it ended up being 20 [email protected] Now that worked out funny in two ways. It wrote a

00:01:25--> 00:01:59

funny in one way, because for like the next 10 years, people thought that I was this huge Michael Jordan fan, when actually I hated Michael Jordan. I wasn't a big fan at all. But number two, the reason why it also worked out well was at that time we were studying him and know his 40 Hadith. And when we came across Hadith number 23. I think from all the Hadith we covered 23 was actually my favorite and that's the Hadith we're covering today. So I thought out of like nostalgia, I actually brought my original copy of Amanda Noah's 40 Hadith with me, the one that I had in grade 10 is published in 1976 heinola. And this is like a third generation hadn't hand down and went from a

00:01:59--> 00:02:35

father to a daughter to her brother to me. So I was like the fourth generation to get this copier. So the head is as follows. And I'll be magical how to fit nasima Sharia law who called called Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to hooroo Sharon Emanuel hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Subhana Allah He will come to the lectern Annie autumn la oma Bina semi you will, or Salatu neurocircuitry oberheim was several dia while Khurana hijo naka arlec colonus Yakubu further infc who from articlehow Omar Deku ha raha Muslim.

00:02:36--> 00:03:15

So this Hadith, I think, by far is probably the most comprehensive Hadith. Inside all of Amina was 4040 to Heidi's collection, and the sense that it covers literally every single act of a binder that you can think of. So it's a very, very comprehensive Hadith. And there's actually a lot to discuss in the Hadith. Now, the good thing is, since this is actually Hadith number 23, a lot of these concepts we've studied before, either in previous Hadith, or in the Tafseer classes that we were having. So the raw we have this Hadith, the narrator of this Hadith, and how to signalosome Allah Shadi, he actually isn't a very common or popular narrator of Hadith. In fact, he's related very,

00:03:15--> 00:03:54

very few Hadith. And it's interesting that one of the ones that he did there, it is so comprehensive, and this is from his virtues. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam starts off by saying, the hudl shutaura, a man, that purity is shuttered, and a man now I want you to think about in the English language, how this can be translated commonly This is translated as purity is half of faith, but this translation is not correct. And I want you to tell me why the term shutter doesn't actually mean half it means if something is divided into two parts, then it is one of two parts. What is the difference between something being one of two parts versus something being

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

half of something? What is the difference in this in the English language, something being one of two parts versus something being half of something

00:04:07--> 00:04:45

fantastic, exactly. That is the point of being made. So hide the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the wholeness fully man, then this would mean that purity is half a face. But when the word shutter is used, the word shutter means something is divided into two parts. We don't know what the percentage of these two parts, it can be 99 to one, it could be 5050, it could be you know, 3070, whatever the case may be, right? So here, this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that purity is a part of faith is one of two parts of faith. Now, the scholars differed in terms of what type of purity could this actually refer to what type of purity could this

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

actually refer to? The first type of purity that they said is that this is referring to will do not want someone to tell me why this would refer to this is going to require some critical thinking. Why would this refer to will do

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

Go ahead and JP you have deer. Yeah, you have the deer steer right now.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

Okay, so that's one way of looking at it, but that's only half the answer. Why did they say we'll do specifically?

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

Exactly, but why? Tell me why it's related to some

00:05:39--> 00:05:47

perform the Salah. That is a very good answer and I see your 75% there. But there's that little explicit 25% that's missing.

00:05:49--> 00:06:02

It is a form of purification definitely. But why is it called you know, why is purification referred to sorry wise would refer to purification over here. We want to know why that is the case why we'll do why not go self was n is greater than will do.

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

No, will do is a part of yourself because there isn't part of odo. Yeah.

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

critical thinkers Where are you guys?

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

Focus on the word Eman over here.

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

What is an amine a synonym a synonym of in the Koran.

00:06:25--> 00:06:25

Sorry,

00:06:27--> 00:06:38

belief. That is it is belief. But it's also a synonym for something else in the Quran. Some that we've discussed many many times. when where why don't you tell me

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

Okay, that's good circle Baccarat. Fantastic. What is the what is the reasoning behind it? What happened?

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

Fantastic.

00:06:56--> 00:07:33

franchise, two heads Mashallah many heads are better than one head to have done. So Dr. versus 143 Allah subhana wa tada he tells us, one that kind of La julio de Monaco and it is not for Allah that He would let your mind go into vain. And what had happened was when the Qibla changed from Albania lock the stomach. The companion said that oh my god, you know, the all the soldiers that we've prayed, you know, they're now useless and futile because we're praying in another Qibla. Then Allah Spanos, Allah revealed this we're seeing that Allah would not allow your Eman to go in vain meaning your Salah to go in vain. So we're here when they say at the hotel Chateau de man. They say the term

00:07:33--> 00:08:10

Eman over here is actually referring to salah and Salah cannot be established without sudo Salah cannot be established without sudo so that is the first interpretation we're taking. Second interpretation we're taking is that the purity over here that is referred being referred to over here is the purity of repentance is the purity of repentance. This was the opinion of Imam Al ghazali Rahim Allah. This was the opinion of the moment because Allah Rahim Allah And whilst theoretically it does make sense that purifying ourselves from sins is a major part of our faith. Generally speaking, the word taharah is used for a physical purification. It's not used for a

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

spiritual purification, what word is used for spiritual purification?

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

Who knows

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

what word is used for spiritual purification?

00:08:23--> 00:08:48

We use we are cited in Juma almost every week in certain Allah, but after the husband does occur, so 10 skia is the word that is used for spiritual purification. So some of the commentators they criticize melaleuca sadly for this, that yes, while the statement is true, it doesn't apply over here because the word for spiritual purification is tastier. And here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is referring to the Hadith is referring to the Hara.

00:08:49--> 00:09:27

Number three, the word the heart over here means general cleanliness. It's not referring to anything specific. It's not referring to although it's not referring to hotel, but it's referring to general cleanliness, that unless I know what Allah commanded, General cleanliness. So you notice this in sort of darker and in sort of off and circle bacara the people of Cuba the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala loves the turabian and the Matata heading, they said, These are the people that when they go to the bathroom, they use not only water, but they use the stones as well. So they take that extra step in purifying themselves. And likewise

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

in a lot of Allah subhanaw taala refers to people that love to just genuinely purify themselves. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that the general element of self purification is something that is beloved to Allah subhana wa tada and it's something that is a part of our faith. And what's important to note over here is the relationship between physical purification and spiritual purification, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he describes how will do is being made, he says that the water that falls off of you and will do it is compensating for the sins that you have committed. So within

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Drop that falls off you, you know you're being forgiven for your sins through. And that is why it's discouraged that after you make widow don't taste in and drying yourself off, but rather whatever water is there, let it drop off, and then you can dry yourself off, because that is creating the sense that is explaining the sense. So that was the third opinion over here.

00:10:21--> 00:11:03

And then the fourth opinion, and this is probably the last opinion, which she will share for our discussion today, because there's quite a few opinions that are mentioned is that they divided belief into two parts, right into statements and actions. This is how belief is divided into. So the act of purification falls into the action part. So they said this is how actions are one part of two faiths, that the act of cleaning the cleaning yourself is an action. And that when of itself manifests or is a representation of general action, which is a part of faith is a general part of faith. So that is how they understood this action, then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:11:03--> 00:11:23

sallam goes on to say, and hamdulillah fills the skills and then hamdulillah fills the skills. So the skills that are being referred to are the skills that are presented on the Day of Judgment, after the reckoning takes place. That is what the scale is referred to the term Alhamdulillah who can remind me what Alhamdulillah means? What is Al Hamdulillah?

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

All Praise to Allah, but give me a specific definition.

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

Like why is all praise due to Allah? That is a question.

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

Okay.

00:11:42--> 00:12:20

I'll give it to you just because we're a bit tight on time. So Alhamdulillah is to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for his intrinsic, great qualities. So let's find out what other possesses these great attributes from love, mercy, kindness, justice, wisdom, so to say Alhamdulillah is to recognize these intrinsic characteristics of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And hopefully, he comments on this part of the Hadith by saying that way hamdulillah we'll fill the skills is when the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala recognizes the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he says, Alhamdulillah and then he says, Alhamdulillah, a mammoth tournament, the Canaries from the Messenger

00:12:20--> 00:12:57

of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is a very beautiful Hadith. He says, when the slave is given a blessing, and he says, and hamdulillah truly, you know, from his heart, recognizing this great blessing, he has returned to Allah, greater than that which Allah has given him, he has returned to Allah, greater than that which Allah has given him. And this is something very happy to think about Subhana Allah giving back to a lot greater than that which Allah subhana wa tada gave to you. And that shows the value of two things over here. One is the spiritual recognition of unhemmed of the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the heart one magnifies Allah subhana wa Tada. And

00:12:57--> 00:13:16

then number two, the great amount of reward in the statement there when you recognize the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala and you sell hamdulillah you have returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala greater than that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you Who can tell me the difference between him than sugar, something we've discussed in the past? What is the difference between him than sugar?

00:13:24--> 00:13:44

antastic Very good. That's the first difference. So sugar is for something specific. Allah gives you a blessing. You say thank you for you your gratitude, you're grateful for that blessing that is giving you something that is specific was it is regardless if there's blessing or not, then your cognitive of the great virtue of Allah subhanho wa Taala was the second main difference between him than sugar.

00:13:55--> 00:14:17

Is that absolutely true? Is that absolutely for the most part, that is definitely true. But I don't know if that's absolutely true. You could praise someone for an intrinsic characteristic. But generally when you say Alhamdulillah admins, All praise is for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So yeah, we'll accept that as an answer. We'll accept that as an answer. Good. The third one, that was the third one.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

Go ahead.

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

That was his first point.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

Anyone, so have a fantastic safety, oh my man, let's do this.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

Of course,

00:14:49--> 00:14:58

for everything, no matter what the situation that can kind of relate with that. You know, less it is the lever for if something good

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

All right.

00:15:06--> 00:15:18

We'll still tie that in we'll still tie that in with a showcase for something specific. That'll happen to something general that still goes back just for sport. We're looking for something more specific. What do you do? How do you do it? What do you do with let's break it down to that

00:15:23--> 00:15:26

it's as if I've never like taught you guys anything in the last two years.

00:15:28--> 00:16:07

Though, so, harm is done with the tongue and with the heart right? The sugar is done with the tongue, the heart and the limbs right and left hand with Allah when you come in the family of the road says Mr. sugar added out that you know go perform sugar with your limbs, right. So sugar is done with the limbs. Whereas Hamed is only done with the tongue and the heart sugar is done with all three of them. Those are the major differences between humped and sugar. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say Subhan Allah and and hamdulillah filled that which is between the heavens and the earth fill that which is between the heavens and the earth. So we've

00:16:07--> 00:16:46

already spoken about Alhamdulillah now we're going to speak about Subhana Allah. Generally speaking, these two phrases, they're often scenes together, so Pinilla and Al Hamdulillah are versions of them are seen together. And in the very last Hadith mentioned inside al Bukhari, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, in this beautiful Hadith, that there are two words that are light upon the tongue, but they're heavy upon the skills and their most beloved to Earth man, they are panela he will be handy he Subhana Allah him of him. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again shows us one of the virtues of this statement of Subhana, Allah and then

00:16:46--> 00:17:23

hamdulillah and the handover here is what behind the heat and the headings that are laid upon the tongue but they're very heavy upon the skills and these four terms of sipan Allah and hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar and now in the head, Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, that these are the greatest words that have been revealed to us, they are the greatest words that have been revealed to us. So there from the greatest form of praises of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now here, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give something very specific, that these two praises, they fill up that is, which is that which is between the heavens and the earth?

00:17:23--> 00:17:43

Basically, they make up all of space and everything that is there. This is what the angels are frequenting? Who can tell me why that is? Why does it fill up the heavens and the earth? And in order to answer this, you need to know the meaning of hamdulillah and the meaning of Panama we already have the first one. Now we need to know the intrinsic meaning of Subhana Allah

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

know nothing. What is the meaning of Subhana Allah? What does that actually mean?

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

Go ahead.

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

Fantastic, excellent. Now tell me why both of these statements together, fill up that which is between the heavens and the earth.

00:18:13--> 00:18:51

That's what I said earlier on, this is what they're busy making Vicar with. Okay, so let's get the first word the definition of SubhanAllah. It is to free Allah subhanho wa Taala from every bad and negative attribute it is to free Allah subhanho wa Taala from every bad and negative attribute and handed in that is to recognize every positive attribute for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when you combine these two together Subhana line Alhamdulillah It is as if it is the perfect form of praise, because you freed Allah subhanho wa Taala from every deficiency and at the same time, you have recognized every perfection for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is why it is the perfect form of

00:18:51--> 00:19:33

praise. And it feels that which is between the heavens and the earth, because this is the perfect form of praise for Allah subhanho wa Taala then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, wa salam to know that the prayer is a light, the prayer is a light. And the scholars interpreted this portion of the Hadith in three main ways three main ways. Way number one, is that on the Day of Judgment, when people are crossing the Surat, the believers will have a light with them, the believers will have the light with them. And this light will be strong based upon their level of Eman and some scholars mentioned based upon the level of their seller. So if the seller

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

with strong dislikes to cross the seller will be strong, whereas if their seller was not strong or they didn't have seller, then they will have no light at all, they will have no light at all, and then crossing the seller will become next to impossible will become next to impossible. So when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says a Salatu note then this is the note that is referring to the Surat on that day. opinion. Number two, what is the function of light the general function of light is that when you're in darkness,

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

This is meant to show you your way. So here with the scholar said was that an individual that establishes the Salah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will guide him towards goodness will guide him towards goodness. And this is based upon the verse in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala says, in a solid 10 100 fashion, he will know that indeed the prayer, it prevents an individual from doing evil and lewd deeds. So when you're establishing the prayer properly, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will guide you to stay away from evil and lewd deeds. And the third opinion that we have Salah being a light over here, this is of the opinion that the individual that establishes the prayer, Allah

00:20:42--> 00:21:18

subhanho wa Taala will give him a mark of prayer will give him a mark of prayer. And that's generally when an individual makes sense that then Allah subhanaw taala places a mark on the forehead from that frequent such that and this is what some of the people will be recognized by. So on the day of judgment when Allah subhanho wa Taala shines light upon people light will emanate from the place of their such that light will emanate from the place of their center. So these are some of the opinions that the scholars mentioned, when they talked about the Salah being light, then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, was sadaqa to borhan was sadaqa to

00:21:18--> 00:21:25

bardhan. And charity is a proof charity is a proof what is surely a proof of

00:21:28--> 00:22:03

of your charity is a proof of your wealth. Okay, that's very good. And you said he might very interesting, we are two different answers, but both of them are correct. Both of them are correct. So in order for a person to give charity, he actually has to have wealth to give charity. And then in order for a person to have his charity accepted, he needs to have a man he needs to have Emma, for our sake of discussion over here, we're going to be talking about how charity is a proof of a man. Now I want someone to explain why charity is a proof of a man. Someone explained that to me, why is charity explicitly a proof of a man?

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

Go ahead.

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

While I understand what you're trying to say, I don't like your wording. Because you said you're not getting anything in return.

00:22:22--> 00:22:24

I still don't like what you're saying.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

Go ahead, you're just scratching your head, are you actually answering above

00:22:43--> 00:23:19

the poor because Allah has asked you to give to the poor, and to help the needy and help the traveller in the wayfarer, and so on so forth. Right. So it's just that it's it's, it's not that like when you get something you're purchasing, you get like a phone or you get a table, you get a drink or something. You're not getting anything tangible in the same sense physical but you're doing it as a testimony of your belief, from the wealth that you have. And usually also the other thing as is the attachments we known as completion of artemisa in money, it's also about money and wealth that we're fighting each other for it, and for you to sacrifice something that you love, for the

00:23:19--> 00:23:19

sake of.

00:23:24--> 00:24:01

Okay, good. I'm looking for a more summarized version of that answer and that's what I'm going to provide but a good that's generally the gist of it. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, what law what law he will live three times, that the individual that gives charity will not see a decrement in his wealth, his wealth will not be decreased. Now logically speaking, when you give charity, wealth is taken out of that wealth, that number has decreased. But the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam takes an oath three times saying that this is not the case. This is not the case. This is not the case that your words will not be decreased by giving

00:24:01--> 00:24:38

charity. And then to have faith in this and give charity based upon that. Then this is how charity is a proof of your Eman that you put faith in the words of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam trusting that when you give charity, your wealth will not decrease your wealth will not decrease. And that's where the element of faith comes into play, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not only give you more money back in this dunya but in all actuality will place much much more for you in the accurate as well. As much, much more for you in the ACA as well. And that is where the true proof of faith lies that you trust in the words of a lot of trust in the words of the Messenger

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and give this charity while even logically it does not make sense to you, even logically does not make sense to you. You're still giving it in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I believe we all experienced this to a certain level that you give charity sometimes and it's amazing. Literally It is amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings that wealth back to you. It is really amazing. Whether

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

There's someone you know paying back a loan that they haven't paid back in like 20 years, or you find the money in your pocket after you're doing laundry, or someone just coming in giving you a gift, you know, here's, you know, like $20 he's a gift. Allah subhanho wa Taala always returns that money back and more. And this is the element of faith, that when you have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of you.

00:25:24--> 00:26:04

And then he goes on to say was Serbia, and patience is illumination, patience is illumination. So earlier on the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam use the word Salah. So use the word nor to describe Salah. Now the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is using the word Leah, to describe patients is using the word Leah to describe patients. What is the difference between Luke and Leia? The difference between Luke and Leia is that when you describe the light of the moon, it is described as low when you describe the light of the sun, it is described as bleah. The light of the of the moon is something which is very calming, very relaxing, very easygoing, not

00:26:04--> 00:26:44

harmful to look at, not harmful to feel. Whereas the light of the sun is the exact opposite. You tried to look into the sun, and it starts burning at your retinas. Right when he touches your skin, you can actually feel the burn, even though the sun is like millions of miles away. So here this is how the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes patients that unlike Salah patients is actually bitter it is harmful in being patient. While it comes with an illumination and radiance. It comes with something that you need to bear, right, it's not something that will come easy. And this is the reality of patients that in the long run, patience, it will burn you it will stay you

00:26:44--> 00:27:22

you will learn a lot of lessons. But in the long run, you come out in illuminated person, a person who is wise person who has gained experience person who can differentiate between right and wrong, and what mistakes to avoid in life. And that is what patients actually does that when you go through those trials. Allah subhanho wa Taala brings you out of those trials, if you gain experience from it, or try to gain experience from it, a better individual a better individual. Now, this is something that you will generally see, as people get older, you know, there are certain people that when you're with them, you can see that they have this, you know, abundance of experience and an

00:27:22--> 00:27:55

abundance of things that they've gone through in life. And you find this a lot in our elders, particularly if they're from like war stricken countries, or they've, you know, been like studying the deen for a very, very long time. They come with a lot of experiences. And you can sense this from them. And that is the illumination that comes with these heavy experiences. And when you look at you know, some of the scholars that passed away from them was sick of no budget. They mean, she called Bernie and the rest of the Melis panels that have mercy upon all of them. All of these people, they hide this, this special aura to them. And that was part of the struggles that they went

00:27:55--> 00:28:31

through in seeking knowledge and in spreading knowledge. And this is the light that Allah subhanaw taala gifts to the people of patients. In summary, the greater the trial, the greater the opportunity for award and, and learning experience from it. You know, a lot of people, they feel that you know what we don't want to trials in our life, because we're very, very comfortable with them. And the general policies as Muslims, we should not be seeking trials, we should not be seeking them. But when Allah subhanaw taala sends them our way, we should embrace them when Allah subhanaw taala sends them our way, we should embrace them, because they're an opportunity for harboring our

00:28:31--> 00:28:45

sins forgiven for attaining great reward for gaining experience from them from gaining the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is what all is all an opportunity that one attains through calamities and through trial.

00:28:46--> 00:29:22

Now, this part over here, this portion of the head is probably like the scariest part of this hadith. I think overall, this hadith has been very, very positive. But this last section of the Hadith can become somewhat negative because of it not because there's negativity in the Hadith, but because there's a shortcoming in our actions. And this is where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we'll call our new objeto luck arlec that the Quran will be approved for you or against you, the Quran will be approved for you or against you. And this is a very, very scary thought that the words of Allah subhana wa Tada, they can actually testify for us on the Day of

00:29:22--> 00:30:00

Judgment, or they can testify against us on the Day of Judgment. When will the Koran testify against us? The Quran will testify against us in two main ways. Number one, is abandoning implementing the words of the Quran. So we know the general meanings of the Quran with the Quran has come to tell us to be merciful to people to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone to be just, these are all commandments in the Koran. And then when we work against these commandments, then the Koran will be a justification against us, because we knew these words, yet we didn't implement them in our daily lives. And the second one

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

The Quran will be a test application against us is when the Quran is abandoned, abandoned reading, abandoned learning, abandoned understanding. And this is panela perhaps the scarier of the two is that Allah subhana wa tada has given us this great gift from his very own speech, yet we as Muslims do not take heed of it, except in the month of Ramadan and even in the month of Ramadan. It's at a very minimal level. And here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he reminds us of this that the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala it has a hug upon us, it has a right upon us. And that is that it needs to be read constantly and consistently among Rahim Allah, He says that the

00:30:41--> 00:31:23

absolute minimum that a believer should read the Quran is from cover to cover is once every 40 days once every 40 days. And this is for the absolute busy and laziest person. This are the absolute busy and laziest person, right? That was the his, his you know, saying of reading the Quran. Now, I want us to think about this really span a lot. In terms of our relationship with the Quran, I think we all recognize that there is room for improvement. And in my personal experience, no matter how self motivated you think you are, until you're in the system for reading, hold on, it's just not gonna happen until there's a system it's just not gonna happen. So whatever, you know, system you choose,

00:31:23--> 00:31:55

whether it is hiring a private Koran TEACHER, WHETHER IT'S registering for, for half a loan, whether it's just having a friend, to follow up with the recitation of the Quran, don't try to make the call on your personal project. Personally, from experience in what I've seen with the vast majority of people, it can't be done, she thought and has too strong of a Holderness in the binding of the Quran. So if you want to take that extra step, we need to sign up to a system implement that system, and that is when we will rebuild that relationship with the Quran. And we should be aiming for that goal that once every 14 days, we'd want to try to finish the Quran. And then more than that, as

00:31:55--> 00:32:34

well. You know, even though Karim Rahim Allah, he talks about how a person retains the Quran, you know, how does the habit retain the Quran, and he said this concept of the forefather retaining the Koran was not something that was known to the early predecessors, because they were revising at least five years every day. So it wasn't as if they had to revise the Quran. Because when they're reading five years every day, that's not a natural revision of the Quran. So five Jews everyday means that they're finishing the Quran every six days. They're finishing the Quran five times every month, five times six, five times 12 is 60. Then finishing the Quran 60 times every year. This is

00:32:34--> 00:33:13

the way of the predecessors. Now I understand that's a very idealistic goal. But we should start off with something. So try this try for every 40 days between lights Allah and work our way from there. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he concludes the last part of the Hadees by saying colonna co2 for burial nafsa who from article ha, Omar and actually have this as my my WhatsApp status for like the last two years, where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Every one starts his day, being a vendor of his soul, either freeing it, or bringing about it through it. And I believe this is perhaps from like the best of reminders when you start

00:33:13--> 00:33:50

your day. remind yourself of this, that each and every single day, we are vendors of our source, either we're taking it to agenda, or we're taking it to Jana. And this is a conscious decision that we will make throughout the day, in terms of how consistent we will be with ourselves in terms of how much we're going to abstain from sins, in terms of how many deeds we're going to do in terms of how many deeds we're going to do. And this is a reminder that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concludes with that each and every one of us. We control our destiny to a certain degree, and that is by the actions that we do. So each and every single day, make a cognitive

00:33:50--> 00:34:28

decision that you know what, today I want to try to achieve paradise through my actions. And you'll notice that having making this decision making this intention will completely alter reality for you, that each and every single thing that you look at, that you read, that you speak, that you think about. If you have gender in mind, it will completely change the way that you are. And this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted us to accomplish from this Hadith, or from this portion of this hadith. And Allah Spanos. Allah knows best with several wasila mubaraka Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
