shikara Mohammed Abdullah sudo sallallahu alayhi wa he was, he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira Oh, my God, my dear brothers and sisters as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
so we don't have December 26 I have you heard a lot about the love
and the love it was send them. kudos to them I mean
with rainbow original feeder but he made a Boo.
Boo sadhaka will kill him to fly to South Africa. When we put the foot towards him she had no soda to soda,
soda on the authority of Abu huraira the loved one who said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Every small bone of everyone has upon it a charitable act for every day upon which the sunrises bring about justice between two is an act of charity, helping a man get on his mount, lifting him onto it or helping him put his belongings on it is a charitable act. A good word is a charitable act. every step you take towards the prayer is a charitable act. and removing the harmful thing from the past is a charitable act recorded by unprovided recorded by a party. So remember now we have a lot in this 26. Hanif is continuing on from hedis number 25, which talks
about charitable acts as well. But there's a particular goal behind this headache. And this is another version of a very similar Hadith to this, where the prophets of Allah Allah wa sallam he says, used to be right up to the Sudan. I mean, it comes into the hands in sort of how could you tell me that in South Africa,
in South Africa,
in South Africa,
nephew and Luca sadhaka we use you mean daddy karrakatta Yokohama? Minato ha, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Every morning there is on the bones and joints of any of you are charitable act, every disappear as a charitable act. every decade is a charitable act. Every time is a charitable act. And every bill is a charitable act. Ordering good is a charitable act to eradicate evil as a charitable act to fulfill that charity, it is sufficient to pray to Allah ties of blood to the cause of the heart. So this is like one of the intended goals behind the mammogram, Allah that after December 25, he gave a brief summary of what constitutes a charitable act. Do you
need an intention for it or not? And how do mundane regular daily acts become acts of sadaqa? Now, Mama, no, Mama is getting into something more specific. And that is how the acts of saliva that we perform are not just accidentally due to increase our idea. But there are apps that we do to show gratitude to Allah subhana wa Tada. So this is the key difference between the two. The first study that we took on December 25, it was about Gen X of silica and how x become active silica right, where it's headed number 26 is the vote how these apps are not just acts of South Africa with their acts of gratitude, to a loss of
gratitude to a lesser animal, what's the other
so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he starts off this hadith by telling us, every joint of everyone upon it is a charity for each day that the sun rises, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's setting a frame of mind that each and every one of us is meant to have and that is that each and every single day as we arise in the morning, we should have this ambition we should have this goal of wanting to use those things that Alice has given us to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why when you look at the drive that we say in the morning, who can remind me of the drive that we say when we wake up in the morning, when you wake up from your sleep,
what is the driver to say, Who can tell me that what
I said so you say
imaginable. So you say Praise be to Allah, the One that granted his life after he has taken it away, and to Him we shall return and to Him we shall return. So you notice that there's two key focuses on this door. The first of them is that Allah subhana wa tada is in control of our lives, that he is the one that gives us life and he is the one that takes it away.
Then the second element of this
eventual return is to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we need to do as many good deeds as we can and stay away from as many bad things as we can in this limited period of time. And this is what the Messenger of Allah subhana wa sallam is telling us here, that each and every single day that Allah gives us the ability to wake up upon our body, as the subtle content needs to be given upon our body as a subtle clock that needs to be given.
Now, you notice over here, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, he says, Allah, and Allah over here, genuinely means that these acts of charity are obligatory, when the word Allah is used, you know, when you say lol insanity, and you're suddenly when it is upon mankind to pray, it indicates that it this prayer that is being done is obligatory. So now the scholars they had a difficult time interpreting this, that when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that upon each and every single joint is an act of charity, is this act of charity, something that is just recommended, or something that is obligatory, something that is just recommended, or
something that is actually obligatory, and this is worthy different upon. And to summarize the discussion and knowledge about him have a lot, he concludes the discussion by saying that these acts of charity, one of them has to be done by mankind each and every single day, that at least one act of charity has to be done each and every single day. And then as for gratitude is of two types, gratitude is of two types, that is obligatory, and then that which is recommended, that was obligatory, and that which is recommended. So the act of charity wouldn't have itself. One act of charity has to be done by mankind each and every single day. And there's no way out of this. And
then in terms of gratitude, gratitude for most animals, the other part of it is mandatory, and then part of it is just recommended part of it is just recommended. So now speaking about gratitude to Allah subhanho wa
Taala, he says that the pillars of gratitude are five, the pillars of gratitude, or five. So just like we have the five pillars of Islam, he's saying that the pillars of gratitude are actually five. And he says that the first of them is that one humbles himself in front of the one that restored the blessing, one humbles himself in front of the one that bestowed the blessing, meaning that the one that is giving you the gift, you humble yourself in front of this individual, and that is why you will see spamela just naturally when you're receiving something, you put your hand out like this, right? Rarely do you take something from someone and you take the latest, generally you will take it
like this as if they're placing that something in your hand. And when you're doing this, you'll generally be looking down like this. So it is as if you're humbling yourself. So if it says that the first step is that you humble yourself in front of the one that is giving you the gift, that Humble yourself in front of the one that is giving you the gift. Number two, you love the one that is giving you the gift, you love the one that is giving you the gift, meaning that one of the ways we increase our love of Allah subhanaw taala is recognizing the gifts that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us nothing like Milan this part, he has very, very beautiful commentary. And that is one of
the biggest fitness that mankind goes through is that they love the gift more than the one that gave the gift. They love the gift more than the one that gave the gift. So let's find out Allah gives you wealth, he gives you a family, he gives you a great job. And then the time comes you're all the things that Allah has given you actually become more beloved to you. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala I think a more practical example of this is sleep at the time of budget. Allah subhana wa tada is the one that gave us peaceful and comfortable sleep. And at first, we have a conscious decision to make. Do we give up that sleep and wake up to pray? fudger? Or do we continue with that sleep that Allah
gave us and continue on with that sleep with that gift that Allah gave us? So that's a practical example, that you have to love the one that gave you the gift and to understand this properly. Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the gift giver should always be more beloved to mankind should always be more beloved to mankind.
The number three, the number three is that he admits that this blessing came from Allah and Allah alone. This blessing came from Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah alone mean that each and every single thing that we have in our lives from the good of it is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala we are just the means of attaining that good but the ultimate good is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and him alone.
Number four, is that one should praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for that blessing. Number four is that one should praise Allah subhana wa tada for that blessing. So once you recognize the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for that blessing, then how ungrateful is it that you know someone opens up the
For you, yet you don't say thank you to them, or someone who helps you with your bags, and you don't say thank you to them, or someone who helps you with directions, would you don't say thank you to them? And these are gifts, such minute acts, right? almost anyone can do these acts. And it is a crime to not say thank you in these situations, then how would the one that gave you life, I was the one that gave you the ability to breathe, I was the one that gave you the ability to see, right, all these are greater blessings. So more gratitude needs to be expressed to the tongue towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then the fifth pillar of gratitude he mentioned is that this birthday
blessing should be used in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and not disobedience. This lesson should be used in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not disobedience. So going back to the example of sleep over here is that sleep was a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now you can use this as a means of gaining strength in the night, so that you can worship Allah subhanaw taala during the day, or you can use this as a means you know what sleep is beloved to me. So let me sleep right through budget, right, so then becomes an act of disobedience. And then it becomes an act of disobedience. And this is a beautiful thing that if you would actually reflect upon it, those nights
where you've had a little amount of sleep, but you managed to wake up or select a budget, your day starts off very energetic and you feel great about that day, even though you've had a little amount of sleep. And those days where you sleep for seven, eight hours and you've slept right through budget. Even though you've slept like 17 hours you feel terrible on that day you feel you feel as if you're lacking energy, and that is the bulk of the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that blessing that you have from Allah subhanaw taala should be used for his obedience and not for his disobedience. And this is what
he calls the bill the pillars of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the pillars of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned in this Hadith, adequately sudama and sudama is a small bone in your body is a small bone in your body, particularly the boards that you see in your hands. And in your feet. These are the tsunami that the small bones between you know the joints, each of these is like a small bone. These are known as Tulum. So the Messenger of Allah love I knew silom over here is saying that for each and every single one of these bones, there's an act of charity that needs to be done. So now imagine
that Imagine you have to give sadaqa for each and every bone in your body is panela for each and every muscle for each and every organ, right? For each and every breath that you take for each and every heartbeat that your body makes, that you have no conscious participation in whatsoever. All of these things require an act of subtle clock that is there in order for us to be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala in order for us to be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Now, this leads to several reflections. The most obvious of them, is if these small bones have a act of southerners mandatory upon them, that you know, say enjoining good or forbidding evil, or saying a kind word, or you know, helping your brother in this time of need. These are the small acts of sadaqa then imagine the type of Southern colonies needs to be done for the bigger blessings in life. Right? What type of surgical needs to be done for the blessing of a mother's Hug And A mother's kiss and a mother's you know, homemade if done? Right, whatever saliva needs to be given them. A greater act of saliva needs to be given a greater act of silica needs to be given. The Messenger of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us as a second reflection, that one of the greatest ways of thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala is by doing good deeds. And in fact, when mankind stops doing those good deeds, he's in actuality, becoming ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then one of the greatest forms of of Aneurin gratitude for Los Angeles Allah is those blessings that Allah gives us that we don't do acts of South Africa with them, we don't do acts of South Africa with them.
Number three, is that what you eventually learn from this, if each and every single blessing that Allah has given us requires an act of sadaqa then in reality, you cannot actually fulfill the obligation towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is what the, I guess the the conclusion of the discussion comes to, is that everything that Allah has given us, we can never praise him enough for it, we can never do enough good deeds. Now this doesn't mean that we give up try, it just means that we need to try our best and hope that the little that we do that almost kind of with the other will accept it from us, the little that we do, we hope that Allah subhana wa tada will accept it from us.
And this is a reflection I want to share with you that you know, as we are in the days of hygiene shala you know, the Hajaj is going to be going to Mina in the next couple of hours.
Right, which is going to begin in Sharla. And if you look at the story behind Hajj itself, that Allah subhanho wa Taala he commended
Did Ibrahim alayhis salam and is married to go to Morocco, and to put the foundations of the Kava at a particular time in a particular place with particular people, right? This is the commander of us panels. If you look at the humidity of Ibrahim, it says that even though Allah commanded him to do this, I'll give him a specific time a specific place. It says it will is normally going to accept this deep because you're fulfilling the command of Allah. But Ibrahim Ali said, and he says a good example for us that even though he's fulfilling a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala, he wasn't deluded into thinking that Allah would automatically accept this deed from him. And that is why when
he finished building the Kava, he made the doctor was fine with Allah, Robin at the top one minute in the cactus, semi organic, there are a lot except from us. Indeed, you are the all seeing and all knowing. And I believe developing this attitude is very, very important that a lot of the times we think that just because we've done a good deed just because we fasted today, just because we want to be fasting on arafa. Naturally, Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to accept it. That's not the case. In fact, when you look at the way our predecessors were particularly normal of Mahatma, he used to say that it was the case that Allah would accept everyone's deeds, except for one individual, I
would always fear that that one individual would be me that Allah wouldn't accept my deeds. And this is the type of mentality that we have, we should have, that one should strive as best in doing the deed. And after the deed is done, one should ask Allah subhana wa tada to accept it. And to thank Allah subhanaw taala gave us the opportunity to do that good deed Allah gave us that opportunity to do that good deed.
The fourth thing is the forgetful nature of mankind, the forgetful nature of mankind, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us now mitanni was born that he like a few men and that's a
that's true blessings that most of mankind is completely heedless of his free time, and good health. So here's the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he teaches us that mankind is going to be forgetful, right, and the two blessing that he's going to be most forgetful of, or is good health and his free time. And it's only when he becomes sick, that he realizes the value of his health. And it's only when he becomes busy that it realizes the value of his free time. And this is something that we should constantly remind ourselves of, that we need to take advantage of our good health before we get sick, take advantage of us being young and being you know, energized before time comes
where we are old, and we don't have that energy. Take advantage of our free time before we come busy. I want you to think about all that free time that we had while being single while being gone before we got married before we had children. And we had spent all that time or not even all that time, just a part of that time to study more Islam to memorize more of the Quran. How easy Could it have been done? Right? Just thinking about if we just took half a page of the Quran a day to memorize just half a page over a period of two and a half years to three years. You can finish finish memorizing the Quran. Think about that. It's just about taking advantage of the free time
that we have. And this is required for all of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala they try your utmost best that each and every single moment, you're cognitive of the blessings that Allah has given you, thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala with your tongue and with your names by using those blessings to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala by using those blessings to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The next discussion is why does the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mention upon which the sun rises, so every day upon which the sun rises is an act of charity. Why mentioned upon the sunrises, the scholars commented over here is that this is to develop that
mindset that we were talking about, so that every time someone sees a sunrise, they're reminded that they have a day to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this was one of the predecessors of hustle and bustle he used to say, in the mountains, a young man is a young Yama Sahaba bajo that you are just a few number of days, and one of these days slips away from your hands, meaning that you don't take advantage of it. Then it is as a part of your life has disappeared as what part of your life has disappeared as well. So with each sunrise in with each sunset, it is a reminder that our lives are slipping away from us and that we need to work to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala
either we need to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala either.
The next discussion is how all of the blessings that Allah subhana wa Xander gives us they go into one of two categories based upon how we are how we react. So when Allah subhanaw taala gives us a blessing. It arrives as a blessing, but our reaction was
either keep it as a blessing, or we'll turn it into a curse, our reaction will either keep it as a blessing or turn it into a curse. So every worldly blessing is not accompanied with thanks to a lot becomes a calamity, every worldly blessing that is not accompanied by thanks to Allah subhana wa Tada, it becomes a calamity. And this is why I've been thinking about him a whole lot. He used to say that a sin that brings you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala is better than a blessing that brings you away from him is better than the blessing that brings you away from him. A person commits a sin, they feel very bad for it. And this leads them to getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala
This is better than the one who receives a blessing, whether it is good health, whether it is free time, whether it is money, whether it is you know, whatever he desires, and then this takes him away from getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala this takes him away from getting closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is another you know, story from my time in Medina is that there was a student that he complains to his chef, that you know, Chef, look, I've been studying for on with you for the last five or six years, but I wasn't able to finish memorizing the Quran, you know, I don't know what it is. And every time I start a new job, it seems like you have to go back to the previous jobs and and
redo it again. And as finally you see the wisdom and the shifts answer, he says, keep trying. And if you achieve the memorization of the Quran, then thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for it, then thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for it. But if you're unable to achieve it, even after all of your hard work, then look at it from the perspective that perhaps Allah subhana wa tada saved you from like pfitzner, that you wouldn't be able to save it from a pfitzner that you wouldn't be able to bear. Because memorizing the Quran, it comes with a burden, that you have to keep it in your memory continuously revise it, you have to try to understand it, implement it to the best of your ability,
you become an example, an example where the people around you, you know, leading Salah now becomes mandatory upon you, right. So this is the burden of having the Koran with us. Now you can put this, you know, replace this blessing with any other blessing than a person who wants money that comes with accountability, you have to give that extra setup, you have to pay your account, you have to use that money to get closer to Allah subhana wa Tada, you wanted a good job, all that comes with accountability. And that is why, you know, I believe people they become deluded by by the dunya in this perspective, you know, you look at the the rights movement, particularly the woman's rights
movement, and you know, to get independence, they're like, you know, why can't the woman be the head of the household? Right? They don't realize that when that leadership is given to you, it isn't come free of charge that you know, you can start bossing your your spouse around that's nobody needs. What it means is that you now have a higher responsibility, a higher accountability with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why it is so important that each and every single gift and blessing that is given to us, we hold ourselves accountable for it. Right. So I'm going to look at obra de Laval who is to say, hold yourselves accountable before you're held to account. Hold yourselves
accountable before all this data was accountable. Because if you don't hold yourself accountable for those blessings, then more than likely, you're going to destroy yourself more than likely you will destroy yourself. So you have to recognize those blessings. And thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for those blessings, because if you don't, then those blessings turned into a calamity then those blessings turn into a calamity through which Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish you. If you look inside, so that the Toba Allah final tally tells the Messenger of Allah symbol La Jolla was set up for that to achieve a karma
for dunya, with Casa home capital, they don't be impressed by the worth and children that was kind of what sada gave to them. In the movie, the loved one you advocate on behalf that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala only wants to punish them through this only wants to punish them through this, that the more wealth that they have, the more children that they have, the more accountability that they have for these things. And in the end of the day in the Hereafter, the more their punishment increases, whereas the less wealth the less children, the less blessings a person has, yes, life will be difficult in this world. But you'll also have less accountability in the hereafter you'll
also have less accountability in the hereafter. Know what the state wants to try to achieve through all of this is to increase your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala through these continual blessings to increase your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala through these continual blessings, and this is what this hadith teaches us that if you want to increase your love of Allah subhana wa tada then try recognizing the blessings that Allah subhana wa tada has given you and thanking Him and you'll notice that your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala will
increase. Now the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he goes on to give specific examples, he goes on to give specific examples, bringing about justice between two is an act of charity. So in every community, you will have a couple of people that are always fighting and bickering. You know, it's as if Allah, they're just there to fight with one another. And it's just human nature that when you're inside an argument, when you're inside, you know, an unfriendly environment with another individual, you can't find a way to reconcile the situation. But as soon as the third party steps in, then all of a sudden, they're able to find a perspective, they are able to
find a point of view that you didn't see. And that is why it is bringing about justice, bringing about a relationship between two people is such a great thing to do. And that's why it's considered this noble act. And that is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, he even tells us that it is permissible to lie, to bring two people together, it is permissible to lie, to bring two people together. So if you know two friends are Friday, something's happened between them, you can go to one friend and tell them look, the other person, he misses you, he's really sorry for what he's done. Even though he didn't say anything like that at all, it will make the person reflecting
go back to the other person did you go and tell the other person the same thing? Look, so so this is who is really sorry for what he's done, and you can rebuild the relationship, then there's nothing more that can be desired. And the greater the relationship, the greater the reward. So a husband and wife is fighting, the greatest form of reward is reconciling the husband and wife, and then amongst two friends, and then amongst two brothers, and then the greater the relationship, the greater the reward. Now, the greatest out of all these relationships is that you can help a person make amends with his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala will help a person make amends with his
relationship told us
that he doesn't know how to understand trials in his life, he doesn't, he isn't able to recognize the blessings that Allah has given him. So to spend time with this individual and help them recognize him, then this is one of the best acts of charity. And this is one of the best acts of charity. And it's something that seemed throughout the Koran. It was fine with Allah, He tells us, but a lot was never that of a nickel that you'll be conscious of a lot and reconcile amongst yourselves. In the manual. We know the first step away now for Waco, that indeed the brothers of the believers are nothing but brothers. So help them to consult amongst themselves to help them be
consult amongst themselves. Helping a man get on his mouth is a charitable act. So now in this day and age, you know, no one uses horses anymore, so they don't need help, you know, getting onto their horse. But what does this mean in the modern day context, in the modern context, it's you see someone's car's broken down on the side of the road, to pull over to the side of the road and help boost his car to help him change a tire. This would be considered an act of Seneca, an individual is locked out of his car, you know, to open up the car for him if you're able to or to call CAA. For him, this would be considered an act of Seneca. So this is what you need to see that in the modern
context, you know, what can you do? So think about how many times you go and buy someone's car. When your car's broken down on the side of the highway. There was an opportunity of South Africa that went by us there was an opportunity of South Africa that went by us message our system says, and a good word is a South Africa a good word, as a sort of God, what is the good word you're referring to? So in light of the other hand, if we see that the good word generally means to save as to say some kind of law Alhamdulillah a lot about and then the law, but here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam used a very general term he said Kadima, Eva, like, General good word. So this
means even complimenting a brother, someone you haven't seen in a long time, my uncle, Mashallah you're looking very young today. You know, just an unkind word to him. This is an act of saliva to help him feel good. And he actually smiled.
So this is like an actor of Sonata. So sometimes you may not even be like the obvious thing, right? Just compliment someone on their clothing, compliment someone on their hair, call them and something on the most my new detail, you may think it's insignificant, but it has the ability to change their day all around. So just a general compliment is a good word, right? And then, you know, guiding a person to Islam, that's an even greater good word. So just think of all the good things that you can do with your tongue. And that would be an act of sadaqa. Every step that you take towards the prayer is an act of sadaqa.
So now, I want to put this in the in the proper context. When a person comes to the masjid. Should they go to the closest parking spot? Or should they look for the further parking spot for the parking spot? No, they should look for the closest parking spots.
I would say generally speaking, my advice would be is look for the perfect parking spot Why? You'll get twice the amount of edge over here. Number one, is that you want the closer parking spot would you're giving it up for the sake of Allah because you love for your brother, would you love for yourself
test one and that one act of a generator. The second act of idea is that there were a small tribe of people, literally a public 12 people that was their tribes on a lot. They wanted to move closer to a mesh than a buoy, they want to move closer to
the Messenger of Allah Sicilian, pull them don't, because each step that you take to the masjid is an act of setup. So it is an opportunity for reward for you. So if you're leaving living further away from the masjid, they're taking more steps, they're taking more steps to the masjid. So when you park farther away than the for each step that you walked in and rested, you also get more reward, you also get more reward. Now obviously, this is something that can only be done by someone that is coming early to the machine. If you're coming late, this ally started, it doesn't mean that you park no miles away, just so that you can end up missing the gym and no catching the gym is more
important, then you know getting the reward of walking to the masjid or take those extra steps. So you have to be conscious of that. But if you're if you have time, the park further away, and with each step that you take into the masjid, no hope for reward from Allah subhana wa Tada, because this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, then he says in removing a harmful thing from the past is a charity. Right? And this is something that we've discussed in the previous Hadith, that the lowest form of sadaqa that anyone can do, who remembers that? What is the lowest form of sadaqa that any one of us can do? Who are members?
Nope. There's an act of charity that is even lower and easier than that. Go sleeping, no easier than that.
accent fantastic. That is the lowest active charity that a person can give to themselves is not harming other people. Problems are certainly toward one of the companions as to prevent people from prevent people from your own harm, then this is a subtle call that you give to yourself. This is a subtle call that you give to yourself and not harming people. Literally, it takes no effort whatsoever. Just mind your own business. No, don't do anything to harm anyone. And you've given a certificate yourself, that is the lowest form of southern Canada, does it require action, then in terms of Salonika, that actually does require action, then smiling in your face of your brother and
lifting something harmful from the ground? These are the minimal acts of service that are done that actually do require effort that actually do require effort. Now reflection upon this part of the headache. Imagine if the Muslims actually took this hadith seriously, that you see something harmful on the path. And each and every Muslim, he feels like he should be the one that is picking it up. By definition, shouldn't our lines be the cleanest lands on the planet? That's my definition. That's the way that's the way it should be. Because this is the lowest form of a man right there that you pick up something harmful from the past. So what does it say about the Muslim lands? That there's
not much in mother fortunately, because our lands are completely filthy. Everywhere you go, you'll find like, I mean, it is really bad to
hear story from shake yasir Qadhi. So she asked if it was in India for the first time. First time is going to India first time, he's going to see his family. He's in a taxi. And what does he see that as you stopped in on a red light, just in the middle of the street, someone has stopped, and he's going to the bathroom right there in the middle of the road. No shame whatsoever.
You know, who does that sort of thing. And that's just one example. Then you have, you know, the trash that we would throw out of our own windows, we're driving, we just finished our cup of Tim Hortons. You know, we don't have a bag in the car. You know what, let me throw the cup out the window. We've seen this many, many times. That shouldn't be the case, my dear brothers and sisters, we need to accept the responsibility that if we can't clean up the planet, at the very least we shouldn't make a deal dirtier. We can't clean up the planet. At the very least we shouldn't make it dirty. Now, let us conclude
the messenger processor and the second Hadees that we mentioned, he says and what will you know compensate for all of these acts of charity, from enjoying the good and forbidding evil to speaking the good word to you know, removing something harmful from the past. All of this will be compensated by praying to access Doha prayer by praying to Rockcastle Doha prayer now what is the Doha prayer? The Doha prayer is a prayer that's done between from sunrise all the way till noon from sunrise all the way to noon. She kept us a minute Hey Mama, he mentioned that 20 minutes after sunrise and 20 minutes before the zenith before the one. This is when the title can be done. This is when the time
for Doha can be done. It should be done in two units at a time. It should be done two units at a time, up to a number of eight up to a number of eight. This was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will do this with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would do and that is something that we should strive for in sha Allah is something we should strive for inshallah. In fact, the messenger system
gave advice to a Valera do not. And he advised him with three things. He advised him with fasting three days every month, to perform to look as a baja and to perform the winter prayer and to perform the winter prayer and to perform the winter prayer. Now, this leads us into discussion.
What is better? The two centers for fudger? Or the Doha prayer? Who's going to tell me what's better? The two centers are the hopper.
So why wouldn't the messenger masa mentioned the two centers prevention over here, as opposed to the Doha prayer there?
Take a guess. Okay.
So you've never missed them, right?
You're very, very close. Very, very close. Anyone else want to give it a shot? Why would the Messenger of Allah mentioned the Doha prayer and not let the Sooners for budget, so we have three hands that will take all three of us first.
business so it is challenging for them to start the business,
even though it is not obligatory. So that's why it has more volume.
Then the students profession,
interesting process themselves, as soon as the budget that it is better than everything in this video. That's how the Sooners prefer to describe, but that's a good way of looking at it. Go ahead.
Anything in the world?
So why didn't he mention the budget?
Better than charity?
So as soon as the doctor told us that if you want to compensate for all these acts of Southern Africa, why not just tell the people you know, as soon as the budget instead
of a budget? Okay, that's another way to look at it rather than the last one.
Interesting. I'm not taking any more hands, unless you have the answer. Are you sure you
call us because your regular articulates in the last one. But is it because at the time, everybody was already establishing this,
too, as an added measure of thankfulness?
That is a very good way of looking at it. Very good way of looking at it. Let me share with you what Michelle Kenyon like more or less as a mama show Kenyan like him a lot. He says, the reason why the messenger of us didn't mention the soonest for budget, because the general rule of the sinner prayers is what was the general rule for the Sunnah prayers is that if you have any deficiencies in your fourth prayer, then the sooner prayer is going to make it up. Right? That is the relationship between the sinner prayers, and the fourth verse. If there's a deficiency in your prayer, then your sooner prayers make up for those deficiencies. Whereas the Doha prayer is a completely separate
prayer, it has nothing to do with the fourth prayer at all, it has nothing to do with the fourth prayer. But rather, this is about you being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala during a portion of the day where there is no fourth solar, so you have this long portion of the data panel up from the time of sunrise, to the time of you know known, it's a long portion of the day, there's no prayer there. And as many of you alluded to, that this is a time where people are getting up to go to school, getting ready to go to work, you know, they're busy with their chores, a lot of stuff is going on, and for you to take a moment of your time at that time. While all this is happening, to
show gratitude for Allah subhana wa Tada, then this is something great at that time, this is something great at that time. So that is the relationship between the prayers, and Allah Subhana. Allah knows best. Now let's conclude with recent remarks on this. And he comments on this hadith by saying that if you give acts of charity, or do acts of charity, on behalf of your joints and body, then this is one of the ways to protect your body from harm. And this is one of the ways to protect your body from harm. So someone that's constantly getting injured and getting hurt. And heighten is basically saying, Do more after sadaqa with your body and all those animals, Allah will keep your
body healthy for you will keep your body healthy for you. Number two, just like we have the cat upon our wealth, then there's a cat on our body as well. Just like there's a cat upon our world, then there's a cat upon our bodies as well and that is using our bodies to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last remark upon this hadith is that if you look at all the deeds
messenger of Allah so I sort of mentioned, all of these deeds are like interactive deeds, the good word is an interactive deed. You know, reconciling between people is an interactive deed, helping an individual, you know, get on to his horse, or in this case, helping women with his car is an interactive deed, removing something from the pathway of the lender individual is an interactive deed. The point being, again, we cannot emphasize this enough, Islam does not want people to become monks, Islam does not want people to just live inside of the Muslim 24 seven, have no job and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you don't have a job, yes, that's something that's fine to do
for a limited amount of time. But we're encouraged to go out and get a job and secret is and interact with one another. And in this interaction, we treat each other in the best possible way. And with this interaction, we treat each other with the best possible way.
Now, I just want to conclude with one last thing in sha Allah. And that is, as we know, the day of alpha is going to be on Friday, inshallah they do a lot of fun will be on Friday, who knows the virtue of fasting on the day of alpha, what is the virtue of fasting on the day of alpha.
Coming here, fantastic. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has reported Sahih Muslim, that when you fast the day of alpha, it will expiate the sales of the previous year, and the coming year, the minor sins that you commit. So this is a great opportunity to earn that ledger. So on Friday, even if we're not fasting, you know, the first eight days, we have to make sure we don't miss the ninth day we don't miss the next day. Now there's a fifth issue related to this. And that is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prohibited from fasting only on Friday, he prohibited from fasting only on Friday. So does that mean if we want to fast the day of
alpha, we also have to fast on Thursday as well? And the answer to that is no. It's much better. And yes, if you do fast on Thursday, and on Friday, because you're you know, staying away from this prohibition, as well as catching an extra day of fasting, it is the better thing to do. However, it is acceptable, just a fact of the day of Friday, as well, because the context of the Hadith, of prohibition of fasting on Friday, this is just for knuffle fasts, they don't have a reason behind them, they don't have a reason behind them. So if someone is fasting every second day, and then secondly, happens to fall on a Friday is there a lot of fasting on that Friday, and the person has
gone fast and makeup, and the only day can make up out of the week is a Friday, he can pick up that Friday. And similarly, just like the DR modifies went to fall on the Friday, it is permissible for him just to fast on that Friday, we'll level
and we'll open up the floor for five questions in Sharla. By questions of equality, go ahead.
With the month, three days should be fasting. Fantastic. So the three days of the month or the middle, three days, 13th 14th and 15th of the month, they're called the lima beans, the white days, those are the three days that you should try to fast forward shama lavon,
that was mentioned, how do you protect yourself from talking about other because if you bite somebody, you will be
the problem. The problem nowadays, if somebody is in a public sphere, is either shift making doors for a politician,
they do something.
So if you talk about them,
what's a unique thing that isn't there, when you talk about them
for your analysis, he put himself in public service situation fantastic. So the general rule is that we're not meant to speak bad about anyone except in certain situations. So for example, this person is oppressing you then to seek help you're allowed mentioning his bad deeds. Number two, if someone comes and asks you about doing a business transaction, or getting married to that individual and you know these bad qualities about them, and you share you share those bad qualities with them. Number three of a person you know can't give them a see how themselves but they know someone else that can give this in the car. So they go and tell this other individual Look, this is what is happening. I
can't give this person the car, but perhaps you can use this person to see because you're closer to him. Right? So that's another situation that you can mention the bad deeds. So the general cases that if someone's doing bad deeds, whether it is public or private, we shouldn't mention those things unless we have a valid reason to do it. Unless pilots animals best right number three, I was wondering like, I go to the university so there's 3000 Muslims there Sunday and there's not many right so let's it is going on and so many people you don't know is it okay, who's joining them or young to make sure it's Sunday people.
So you don't know if they're at Monday? Yeah. Okay. So the general presumption is that when you're praying your Salah is valid behind that person until you have proof that your Salah is not valid to behind them. So for example, if you know this person specifically as he or she is
Then in that case, you shouldn't pray behind them. However, if you who you're, you've prayed already behind them, and then later they tell you, you know, where she, our ID and your cell are still valid, we just don't pray behind them the next time was
number four, was going to be number four.
In these nine days, you should do as much faith as you can from doing the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala, to fasting to, you know, praying as much as you can, you should do as much of it as you can. So if a person has the ability to take the day off, and I will say, I think that's a very good thing that there's like, generally, the general rule is just how we treat the last 10 days of Ramadan. That's the same, we're meant to treat the first nine days of the teacher, that's how we're supposed to treat it. So a person has the ability to take time off to increase in as a vada. And this is something good is shown a lot
when I was asking for number four don't have the answer. Now when we get to number five and six, both humans have personal concluded six number five.
it seems like we've gone into this habit of taking a
you should have some time off
to actually go to work on that day on Friday. Because when the player is done, you're supposed to be there The secret is right Allah subhanaw taala Soto Juma, he says first, our erratic weather there.
And then in a way that puts a lot of fun.
So we're here the command over here is a command to show permissibility The score is mentioned over here, just like when Allah subhanaw taala mentions about height When you've completed your with a letter, and if you've gone out of the state of Allah go hunting at that time going hunting over there it is it means them that is recommended. It just means something which is permissible. So same thing over here that after Juma is finished, it is permissible to go back to work. I'm not going to say it's sooner or makuu we're just going to say it's moved by suddenly which is permissible a long time but one thing that I will comment over here is that a bad habit we see amongst Muslims is that
their boss will give them one hour off for the job and they come back like two hours late that's something that shouldn't be happening if you've committed to taking only one hour off then only then committed to that one hour but if you need more time off Don't deceive your boss and you know just disappear for two hours but rather tell your boss in advance that look I'll take two hours off and I'll make it out throughout the week you know coming early staying late whatever the case may be
and last question for the evening.
that is true any step that you take towards the machine you do get reward but the general principle is the greater the struggle the greater the reward. That's what we'll mention over here.
If required of course
he has to make
inshallah he can keep make with LED home that is even better. If we can make home will do at home that is even better, but it's not mandatory. Yeah.
No, that would be impossible for a lot of people
from Central America that
will conclude we'll continue with December 27. On Friday after salata, mcglinn at the Edmonton tree of location in sha Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala will be on vacation
to go to Lake wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
