da da da da da da da Hello Lola. Hola. Hola Chica wash. I don't know Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira Magog, my dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
A beautiful moment in our history was when Abdullah Mubarak and Sophia and Marina both went for Hajj one year. And in the value of alpha, Abdullah Mubarak, he comes to Savannah Marina. And he says, Do you see all of these people here? Who from amongst all of these people do you think is the most unfortunate of them? And so we end up with a now he puts his head down for a while, and he contemplates and as he raises his head, he says the the most unfortunate person here today is the one that thinks that Allah subhanho wa Taala cannot forgive him, the one that thinks that Allah subhanaw taala cannot forgive him. And if you look at the attitude of the predecessors, towards the
forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada. They clearly understood that there was not a sin that can be committed under the sky. But when the slave of Allah repents to him, Allah subhanho wa Taala will accept his repentance. And I believe it's very befitting that Mr. manoli Rahim Allah chose this hadith to be his final Hadith. In fact, you know, it's called the mama no is 40 Hadith but the Hadith you're covering tonight is Hadith number 42. And very few scholars actually commented Why is it called the mama no is 40 Hadith when you have 42 Hadith one of the scholars that did attempt to reconcile this was not how God hated me. And he said the reason why you remember no you
added these two Hadith is because after he had completed his 40 Hadith and he had completed his mission that he wanted to do, but he had loved the last 200 Hadith number 41 and Hadith number 42. So much that he wanted to include it in anyways, I did number 41 was about how none of us will truly believe until our inclinations are in accordance to what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came with, and I think number 42 the Hadith we're covering tonight is about how Allah subhanho wa Taala is looking for ways to forgive us. Not that we have to look for ways to be forgiven by Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is looking for ways to forgive us. Now he chose this particular Hadith, because it is
just human nature to sin, we're all going to have shortcomings, we're all going to make mistakes, even in you know, in this
journey of explaining the 40 Hadith. I think about the times where I could have tried harder where you know, maybe I went over something too quickly or I didn't prepare properly. And I remember one particular incident. This may be like three weeks ago, we're at the eighth of eighth masella and allows my witness it was so burning heart in the middle of that day that you guys didn't witness this. I show this to some of the guards after the holidays today. But it was so hard and the heater is right behind me. That literally I was drenched in sweat after you think I'd have like a five hour workout. That's what I just done. And I just zoomed to the other guy couldn't sit there and cheer
anyway just need to get out. When I was preparing for this Hanukkah, I couldn't help but feel and you know, ask Allah, Allah for his forgiveness, that you know what would have been if I just spent another 1015 minutes, you know, trying to finish that Hadith. So it's a an always it's always a beneficial reminder, to feel to understand to know that the one that created us the one that understands us best is always looking for for ways to forgive us. So I pray that Allah subhanaw taala by the end of this hadith has forgiven all of us in this room. I mean, another sinology Allahu anhu con similar to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you're cold, call Allah Azza wa Jalla you
have the item in the camera out and He will judge me attorney for Canada McKenna mink well, Daddy, Jani Adam Nobunaga to blue book and then a summer semester attorney has offered to look at them in the color attorney the Caribbean or the kataya sama la casa de la to Shrek BIA shake that I took because we have mercury or paternity or called a hadith and has an on site and the authority of Anna's May Allah subhana wa tada be pleased with him Who said I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Allah blessed and most Thai said, Oh, son of Adam, as long as you call upon me and put your hope in me, I have forgiven you for what you have done. And I do not mind.
Oh, son of Adam, if your sins were to reach the clouds of the sky, and then you would seek my forgiveness, I would forgive you, oh, son of Adam. If you were to come to me with sins that are close to fill in the earth, and you would then meet me without Describing any partners with me. I would certainly also bring to you forgiveness close to the filling of the earth. reported by Timothy who said the Hadith is has no
So general comments about this Hadees when you look at this Hadith, you clearly understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala when He created us, he knew that we as a Christian would need forgiveness, right? Part of our being would that be we would be making mistakes, we would be forgetful. And we at times, or I, in fact, a lot of the times will not be able to control our own whims and desires, and we would feel bad thereafter. And we would need a Lord that would be that would be willing to forgive us and that is none other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is part of Allah subhanho wa Taala His divine plan, that he created a creation that would make mistakes and seek forgiveness. And
this is just due to the fact how much Allah subhanho wa Taala loves to be sought forgiveness from, he loves to be repented to, and this is a privilege that Allah subhanaw taala has given to his slaves, those of us that repent back to Allah subhanho wa Taala they are the ones that are truly honored. Right, the honor is in seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why you see the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was someone as pure and as righteous as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala 70 to 100 times a day. And when Allah subhanaw taala has already forgiven his
sins. So why would the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continue to do this? In amanotes Rahim Allah He comments on this himself. He said the seeking of forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala is of various types. You and you know we'll share that exact narration at the end when it shows you that Allah subhanaw taala loves the seeking of forgiveness so much that it is a privilege for the slave of Allah to please his Lord by seeking forgiveness from Allah subhana wa tada and that is what this hadith is actually about. In terms of the Hadith itself, this is another Hadith could see and this hadith kotse number four out of the whole collection and we did a detailed
recap of it in what I had difficulties and Hadith number 24. That you can look up in terms of Allah subhanho wa Taala beginning this hadith by saying, Oh son of Adam, why did Allah subhanho wa Taala begin this hadith by all son of Adam, why not all Daughter of Adam, and more particularly Why did Allah subhanaw taala not say all my slaves? Why did he particularly mentioned Adam and his Sunnah. So firstly, let's look at the linguistic perspective of this. In the Arabic language, we have something called the who lead where something takes a dominant, you know, I guess precedence over something else. So to give you an example of this, I want you to imagine there's a room filled with
sisters and shallow pure thoughts. a room filled with sisters, and there's one man that is amongst them, okay. So in the Arabic language, you would think that since 99% of the people in the room are sisters, you refer to them as young Muslim at right Muslim at meaning the plural of Muslim Ummah, which is the female Muslim, the female Muslim, that is what you would think. But according to Arabic grammar, it is correct to refer to them as their Muslim own, because the presence of one man is sufficient, the Guttenberg of one man is sufficient to refer to them in the male in the male gender, as opposed to the female gender. And then you see this, you know, you know, several times in the
Arabic language, when you're looking at Abu Bakar and Omar Abdullah, on whom you would they would be referred to as an Iran, right, the two owners, but when they want to work with there's one Abu Bakar 100. And you will refer, you know, to the sun and the moon, they're referred to as a sham son, right. So this is the way the Arabic language works, that there are certain words that have a very, you know, dominant presence, and the male gender, when it comes to the genders is the dominant present presence in the Arabic language. So in the last panel, what Allah says Oh son of Adam, it is automatically assumed that it means all son of Adam, no Daughter of Adam, because the male version
will encompass both the male and the female will encompass both the male and the female. And this is just part of the Arabic language as it is. Now why did Allah subhana wa Tada. Use? Oh, son of Adam, as opposed to Oh slaves of Allah, Who can tell me this. This is a it requires a little bit of thinking, Well, why does this final challenge introduce Adam and a celebrity the equation you are raising your hand or brother, although in the back.
He was the first sinner fantastic and he was also the first he was also the first person to repent. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala introduced the name of Adam and his Salaam into this Hadith, because he is such a great example for us that are the Malays Salaam, he made a mistake and he also sought forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And it's beautiful you when you read the story, it is absolutely beautiful. I want to share two examples of beauty from this. Number one is the humility of Adam alayhis salaam or the money Salaam. He makes a mistake and he feels terrible.
Inside, Allah has given me everything, you know, how could I disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. And rather than just trying to make up some way of seeking forgiveness, he humbled himself he says, Oh Allah, look, I don't know how to seek forgiveness from you. So teach me what I can say so that I can seek forgiveness from you teach me what I can say, so that I can seek forgiveness from you. And this is when Allah subhana wa tada he tells us for the moment, he can imagine photography, so let's say Salaam he sought words from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And due to those words, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive him due to those words, Allah subhanaw taala forgive him. Now this is mentioned in sort of
buckler one is a list I know that actually go and tell us you know what these words were six students later it's like, you know, six years later, that's when you find out what these beautiful words were. were ultimately Salaam. He learns from Allah subhanho wa Taala robina Balaam Nan Hussain, our lm tequilana with a hammer then akuna Minal Casa de they're all law we have wronged and oppressed ourselves. And if you don't forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be of the losers, we will surely be of the losers. Now, what is the wisdom behind the left hand side of policing, you know, these two separate important integral parts of the story, you know, far apart?
It is to show us various lessons. Number one, the Quran is a journey. It's not something that you read as a novel, something you have to experience and learn and pick up the details as you go along. And number two, it is to teach us that the journey of Toba is going to be a long journey. It's not something that, you know, you want to give up a sin today, and you've given it up tomorrow. That's not the way it's gonna work. Unless teaching us a lesson, that from the time you want to repent to the time, a lot actually, you know, accepts your repentance. It could be a long time, it could take you a while to get accustomed to not committing that sin. It could take you a while to sincerely
repent on the inside so that Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you. The second beautiful thing about the story of Adam and the police, is the fact that both Adam and the police he made they made to Allah subhanaw taala. Right. Adam made the demand for forgiveness. It leads me to Robbie, I'm learning a new bathroom that Oh Allah give me life till the Day of Judgment. The dog either man a salon is accepted. He's sincere in his repentance. We understand why Allah subhanaw taala will accept the dog as a man a Salah. But why would Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted one of the beliefs? Why would Allah subhanaw taala accept the door of a bliss? We've discussed this a couple of times
before Who can tell me? Why would Allah subhanaw taala accept the door of the police bench?
So there is a reason for his existence. That's good. But we're looking for something greater than that. I would say that's a secondary reason. There's a primary reason behind it. My brother in the back, go ahead.
Allah didn't forgive him. Please, we shouldn't confuse those words. But Allah showed him his generosity. And let's find out Allah showed him his generosity, that someone like it believes the most sinful creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah doesn't want to turn his slaves away when they ask. Allah does not want to turn the slaves away when he asks. So even someone that could bless them or sinful creation, when he sincerely and genuinely asked of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanho wa Taala still granted him what he wanted, he still granted him what he wanted. And this ties in beautifully into the first part of the Hadith, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, as long as you
call upon me as long as you call upon me, the Otani and this concept of Doha is one of the most beautiful concepts that we have in our faith, a pure intimate relationship that the slave of Allah subhana wa tada has with his creation, where Allah subhanho wa Taala is called upon and Allah subhanho wa Taala answers and the more the slave calls upon Allah, the more that slave becomes beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is what you know, this relationship is all about. And when you look at how the Messenger of Allah lohani was send them he describes this relationship, he says, A da, da, da, da is worship in of itself. Why did the messenger all of a sudden use these
particular terms? When we look for our purpose of creation, Allah clearly told us that we will not create it except to worship Him. So what is the primary way of worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada. It is through dua, one may think you know, it is Salah, but in reality, what is the Salah it is in fact, one long, that's what it is. So Salah is a long version of dwad that is mandatory. So do I is a specific act of worship that Allah subhanaw taala chose for his slaves. And this is you know, the most important act of worship. It is the most frequent act of worship that the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala will do. Now let's look at definitions of what exactly is and we have two
definitions. One is a technical definition and the second one is more of a spiritual definitely a definition. So it may not be the Maliki scholar or be the Maliki scholar. He says
he is calling upon our
law for some good that one wants. So this the first part of the definition is calling upon Allah for some good that one wants or repenting of some harm or trial. So the second part is
repelling of some harm, you're asking Allah to repeat some harm from you or to repel a trial from you or to repel our trial for you. The fourth thing he mentions supplications are a means or cause for what one has requested. So just like you know, one works in order to seek the risk, the likewise when one wants something from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Making do is part of the verb making do is part of the cause. And part of that means that's number four and number five supplications bring about the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and repel his anger in a manner similar to a shield repelling a spear in a manner similar to a shield repelling a spear. So the fifth thing he mentioned
that the DA it brings about the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada and repels the anger of Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, this is the Hadith from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nothing repels the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala like, nothing repels the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala like Dora, and this is also related to a verse in the Quran that we're we're coming to where he says we're calling darbuka Moroni as the gibler come in and Edina is Luna and he Bertie said who Luna Johanna medallion that your Lord has said call upon me and I will answer you, those people are turned away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the worship of Allah
subhanho wa Taala shall enter the Hellfire in the state of humiliation and degradation, this is in total laughter. Now, let us just quickly you know, look at this verse, Allah subhanaw taala commands us to make dua rakata robocon, are the only and from what we've learned throughout our Holocaust, when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us a command what does that mean towards us? What does it mean towards us?
When Allah gives us command, what is it upon us and obligation fantastic, Allah gives us a command, it becomes an obligation upon us, until we find the proof to understand it otherwise until we find the proof to understand it otherwise. So here when the lie is giving us a command to make law, it means making dwis and obligation making Doha is an obligation. Some of the scholars commented by saying that this obligation is uplifted by praying the five daily prayers the obligation is uplifted by the five daily prayers. Other scholars said no the obligation is not uplifted by the five daily prayers, but rather a person should have a regular job that he keeps making to Allah subhanho wa
Taala rather he should have a regular door that he keeps making to Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the day, and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed so many opportunities throughout the day, where the eyes are answered, where laws are answered, and we'll come to that soon to be the Knights Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala says and I will answer you meaning as soon as you make your dua, I will answer you. So when the time comes with a lot to be answered, Allah subhanaw taala will answer and we've discussed previously the two eyes are answered in one of three ways. Either Allah subhanaw taala gives the slave what he wants, when he wants it. Or number two, he delays it till a time that it is better for him he delays it till the time till it is better for him. Or number three, what he's asking for in reality is not good for him at all. So let's find out what Allah takes an equivalent amount of evil that could befall him and protect him from it in this life or the next and protects
him from it in this life, and the next. Now what's beautiful in that narration that narrated the Muslim, the Sahaba he goes on to say out of Sula, this is the case that Allah subhanho wa Taala will answer all of our doors, you know, the logical thing to do is we should increase our making. Right? The province of Amsterdam he responded by saying and Allah subhanho wa Taala will still have more to give you and Allah subhanaw taala will still have more to give you to show that the dominion of Allah subhanho wa Taala is so great that if all of his slaves from Adam and he said up till the last person who says later Hey Lola just before he dies on the Day of Judgment, all of these people feel
the ask of Allah subhanaw taala it wouldn't decrease from the dominion of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is what this verse is all about, that keep calling upon Allah, you know that the burden is not in Allah giving you the burden? Is it you asking him Allah subhanho wa Taala keep asking of Allah and Allah will give you more, he will honor you and making dua. And this is what the next verse, this could not the latter part of the verse comes into in the letter D. Now you're stuck between a and d by dt, that those people that become arrogant and turn away from my worship. They're the ones that will enter the Hellfire in humiliation. Now, why would a slave of Allah become arrogant in
worshipping Allah and making the art to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The scholars mentioned that asking is considered a form of humiliation and degradation, right? When you ask someone else for a favor, when you ask someone else for something, you put yourself at their mercy, they can say yes to you. They can say no to you, right. So you put yourself at their mercy. And generally speaking, if you you can avoid putting yourself in a situation where you're asking for someone prompts
Someone This is a good thing to do. But that's when it applies to other human beings to other creation. But when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala the humiliation and degradation is not in the fact that you've asked Allah subhanho wa Taala it's when you don't ask Allah subhana wa tada because those that don't ask Allah subhanaw taala said, Who Luna Johanna Daugherty they are the ones that will enter the Hellfire in a state of humiliation and degradation. And when you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala allegedly raises your status and you will see this you know, lose my mind my witness to this, that Allah has certain select slaves, that when they make dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah,
Allah gives them such a presence, such a serenity that you can tell that these are the people of Allah subhanho wa Taala, just due to their close relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. our predecessors they used to say that at the slave of Allah spent his whole life making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, and nothing else, absolutely nothing else, besides making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, then he would have lived a fulfilling life. I mean, if he didn't achieve anything in this world, except for the fact that he used to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, he would have lived a very fulfilling life, because Allah subhanho wa Taala would have raised his status and
entertainment to paradise and that was the desired goal and that was the desire to go. So that was, you know, attended after the, the technical definition of da, let us look at you know, what the spiritual definition or what it is meant to be. And this is by one of the predecessors known as Elliot theory. This is one of the predecessors known as LFA. He says Dawn is the display of one's need for Allah and the showing that one actually has no power or might in or by himself, so it is displaying one's need in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and showing to Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are helpless that we cannot do anything for ourselves. And this is what Allah subhanho wa
Taala loves to see, when the slave of Allah is broken down in front of Allah, he has no other recourse to go to accept to Allah subhanho wa Taala he is in a state of desperation. He's in, you know a dire constraints that if he does not get this done in Tyneside, he will be crushed. And at that time when he raises his hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala that is what Allah subhanaw taala wants to see from the slave at all times. Allah wants to see that the slave is in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is where the concept of humility comes back into play. That you know, we are in desperate need of Allah subhanaw taala at all times. Particularly you know, if you look at
the state of the oma right now, we're in desperate need of Allah subhanho wa Taala it was Narita. So
then when people used to see him, he would constantly be asking a lot to save him. He'd constantly be asking, oh, Allah save me or Allah save me. And they said that you would think that the way he's asking a lot to save him as as if he's drowning at that time. That is a state of desperation he's in when he's asking of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is, you know, the type of desperation we should have when we present ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, we have no power or might by ourselves. Now, this is such a very interesting reflection. As human beings, we think of ourselves, as we're powerful and mighty, that, you know, we can do whatever we want, at any time
that we want. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us this great creation. And this is so stupid, from so many ways, when you compare in our small Earth is to the rest of the planets to the rest of the galaxies, to the rest of the solar systems out there. We're not even an ant, you know, on a map, we're like, not even an atom, we're smaller than an atom compared to the rest of the creation, right? Can you imagine that 1 million Earths can fit inside the sun, and our sun is like one of the smaller suns, compared to the suns of other galaxies. We're really insignificant. We're really, really tiny subpanel la, yet we walk with this arrogance and pride. Now, to put aside that funny
tangent to this,
there was a brother who accepted Islam and hamdulillah. And he shares his story how he found Islam. And he says that he tried committing suicide three times. He tried committing suicide three times. I don't remember, you know, the ways that he did it. One was by pills, you know, one was by like jumping off a building. And other one I don't remember what he did. But I thought about that panela how suicide letter person to Islam and I'm like, how did that happen? He's like, what the third time when they tried to commit suicide, something clicked in my head that I wasn't meant to commit suicide. So I started to look into what is the purpose of life? What Why am I created? Why am I here
on earth? And I thought to myself, somehow the line obviously I you know, I didn't mention this time, but how weak mankind is, he can even take his own life. He can even control that. And he jumps off a building puts himself through all this pain to realize that Allah wants him alive. When had he just done some research prior to that he would have realized it that Allah wants you alive to worship Allah Subhana Allah, Allah wants you to live to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So now the etiquettes of making dua, the etiquettes of making dua number one praising Allah subhana wa
Anna, you know, it's very selfish that in the English language when you ask someone for something you don't say please, right? Can you say give me this give me that you don't say please, you don't say thank you. It's very unbefitting you know of chivalry in the English language, if you would ask me something else saying please and thank you. Similarly when it comes to Doha, it is extremely rude, extremely out of character for the humble slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he should ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for something without praising Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why you see in sort of the Fatiha Allah subhanaw taala teaches us the ideal way of you know, making dua that
sort of 31 has seven verses in it. Three and a half verses are purely praising Allah subhana wa tada and thanking Allah subhanaw taala so as if Allah is teaching us that halfword should just be purely be about praising Allah subhanho wa Taala number two is that sense Salaam Salaam upon the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our predecessors used to say that the Dwyer suspended between the heavens and the earth up and until the slave said salon salon upon the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number three, that when you make da may do both for your dunya and your Akela may drop both for your dunya and your Acura tying this into the story of Adam alayhis salaam.
Salaam he made for his forgiveness for his spirituality. He believes he made law purely for this dunya the creation that constantly make dua just for their dunya they're following the example of the bliss and as a terrible example to follow. So someone's like constantly all passing my exam or like getting a new car or a brand new house, so on and so forth, because no concern for his accurate for his spirituality, then this is the model of lease, but the model that has a basis and an emphasis on spirituality. The net is the prophetic model the example of Adam and his salon, in fact a better model than Allah subhanaw taala teaches us in the Quran is in the Dr. Robin attina to dunya
hustler will accurately Hasina working as a banner that all our graduates good in this life grant is good in the next and save us from the punishment of the hellfire. So here you ask him for three things. One of them for this dunya to have them for the Acura meaning that in your doors, two thirds of your doors should be for the Acura and one third should be for this dunya and that is the balance you want to try to achieve in your door. That is the type of balance you want to try to achieve in your door. Number four is that your heart should be certain that Allah subhanaw taala will answer in this law your heart should be certain that Allah subhanaw taala will answer this door. And directly
related to this is the next point where the heart should be attentive and making dua the heart should be attentive and making the law so certain in the fact that Allah will grant you what you want. attentive in the fact that you're not just doing lip service, right? A lot of the times we just do lip service in our doors Allah grant me this Oh Allah grant me that. Why are you making this law or because my parents taught me to make this law, right, it shouldn't be the case. But rather when you're asking your heart should be attentive it should be you know, attached to Allah subhanaw taala recognizing the mercy and greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is done by using the
appropriate Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you're asking for each and every single thing that you ask of Allah subhanaw taala there is an appropriate name tied into that, find that appropriate name and use that name, when making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
That's number five. Number six, is that one should not be hasty in their da one cannot raise his hands and say, Oh Allah, you know, grant me a wife. And it's like 10 minutes have gone by and the gala was my wife, you know, what's happening? I thought you answered was a carrot. It doesn't work like that, right? The Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he says your dwis will be answered, as long as you're not hasty. As long as you're not hasty. And this is part of the the first part of the headset when you mentioned alliances, drives in three ways. The second way is when the time is right for you, that's when I was going to give it to you. So Allah knows what is best for you, and He will
grant it to you when the time is right for you. Right. So don't be hasty, because when you're hasty, that's one of the means or one of the ways that one is rejected, one of the ways that you are is rejected. Now, there's other things that people mentioned, such as facing the Qibla, being in a state of Voodoo, after having done an act of righteousness. These are all good things to do. These are all good things to do. If one can have been in a state of Voodoo, if they can face the Qibla if it can be done after an act of righteousness, then these are all good things to have done to have your more accepted, more accepted. Likewise, using the appropriate times of where Diwan is accepted,
from the times where it was accepted. Actually, let's go through it. Who can tell me times widthwise accepted one by one, go ahead.
The last third of the night is a timer. Let's find without answers to as a young brother over here.
When you're in a state of desperation, fantastic when you're in the state of desperation, Allah subhanho wa Taala answers the house.
When it is raining is the time of blessing and mercy. It is a good time to make that time Yes. Good.
In between the two what was so this is what they call Saturn is the Java like the iron is the our word was answered on the day of Friday. One of the opinions is between the two what was when the Imam is is sitting between the two quarters is a time where dwis answered, this is an opinion, Allah Subhana Allah knows best. But the stronger opinion is that it is the time just before mugging up on Friday, the time just before mclubbe on Friday is the time where the laws are answered. But to the point of that, if the law is Allah subhanaw taala kept it hidden, so that throughout the day on Friday, the slave should be making dua throughout the day, just regularly making the law between the
time the man was sitting just before most of the time, you know, between the line and the comma. In all those times you should be making two on Friday. Go ahead Dinesh.
Fantastic, when the person is stressed and you start to have them there, man, that's not good. When a person is fasting or traveling, the fasting person has two why's number one when he is fasting. And then number two, when he's opening his fast both of these times is his answer, particularly at the time of when you're opening your fast, particularly at that time is the dawn which is answered and then when the person is traveling when the person is traveling. So what do we learn over here? Particularly in these two scenarios, you learn that the more the slave of Allah is in the state of desperation, the more his ties had his heart is emotional and attached to Allah, the more the donor
will be answered, and the other times we advise answered, go ahead.
During sujood, you're closest to Allah subhanaw taala fantastic, and I'll tie into that, that in the Salah just before you say salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. That time is a DVI, which is also answered at that time is the one which is also answered. Go ahead.
40 minutes before fudger How did you calculate 40 minutes?
How did you calculate 40 minutes? Just before for that, yeah, so the last third of the night, the last third of the night? Good answer. Fantastic. Go ahead.
so late at night of late the night that Allah subhanaw taala answers to us fantastic.
person who is sick?
Yeah, I mean, I don't know off the top of my head that had the proof of that. But there's a specific the general approval when the person is going through hardship. I would accept that definitely. Yes.
I was waiting. I mean, we started off with the auto for the story of Oliver. So the day of out of is the day that unless I know what Allah accepts to us, is Can anyone have anything else? Go ahead
during the love and during Safa, and Marwa
Allah Allah, I mean, this goes back to the act of during righteousness and after righteousness are tied into that last one, go ahead.
When you're oppressed, the Muslim so persons oppressed, I don't want to take any more but go ahead.
during childbirth are so many people quote that I've never found a proof for that. It is true, you
you've been through it a lot. That's a story and a half, you have to share with us one day inshallah.
So that's something that is mentioned that during childbirth, you know, making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And, you know, for those men that, you know, have experienced being with their wives in childbirth, you know, to take the time to focus on making Doha, you know, she's making one of two of those, you know, one number ones that will make this easier one, and number two, you know, kill my husband, wife.
So you want to be a bit careful there. But in terms of actual proof, I've never found proof to actually support this opinion. And I've always asked people, if you actually actually come across a headache, when the physician says that at the time of childbirth is an answered, though, I would love to see the Hadeeth for it. But under the concept of a person going through hardship and difficulty, his drawers answered, we will accept that. Now let's move on. The point of mentioning all of those things is that those are, you know, many, many opportunities to have your Whys answered, how much do we take advantage of those opportunities? How much do we take advantage of
those opportunities? Then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say and put your hope in me. So it's not sufficient just to call upon Allah subhana wa Tada. But we put our hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala as well put our hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually gave us a very clear command. He says Lilya Mouton. hadoken ilaha illa billahi one, he says none of us should die, except while he's having good expectations of Allah subhanho wa Taala acceptable is having good expectations of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there is a discussion about how should a Muslim actually live his life? Should he leave live being hopeful?
Should he hold it? Should he be more on the fearful side? Should he be more on the fearful side while he is healthy and more on the hopeful side when he is sick? You know what should actually happen? And this is what you'll find you know, a wide array of opinions when it comes to this discussion.
check up nothing, not him Allah. He concludes the discussion by saying that the individual needs to be his own physician, the individual needs to be his own physician. So generally speaking, whenever you find yourself, you're getting too optimistic that you will sin and you know, you're like, Don't worry, Allah will forgive me, then that is a time when you should be fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And other times when you feel you're completely lost and completely in despair, you're like, Man, you know, how am I going to get through this? Or you know, Allah won't forgive me for this sin, then at that time, you need to force yourself to be hopeful at that time, you need to be forced
yourself to be hopeful, then for those particular narrations that talk about you know, just before death, you should be hopeful, then at that time, in particular, the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala should be extra hopeful. Now why at the time of death, should we be inspired with hope? What is the wisdom behind that? Why did the Messenger of Allah satsang tell us that at the time of death, in particular, be inspired with hope? Go ahead.
Fantastic. So number one, that is the time when she thought is getting you to despair from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala she thought it will come to you and do all sorts of nasty little tricks at that time, and it will get you to despair and Allah subhanho wa Taala and is at that time, you need to force yourself to be extra hopeful than Allah subhanaw taala to be extra hopeful in Allah subhanho wa Taala number two, at that time, it's just human nature, that you start to remember all the sins you have committed, all the mistakes you made, all the things you did wrong in your life. And you just start to wonder, you know, how will I answer Allah subhanho wa Taala for those things
that I did. So at that time, in particular, you want to be extra hopeful of Allah subhanho wa Taala be extra hopeful of Allah subhanho wa Taala because while we're being judged by someone who is just his mercy overcomes his justice, His mercy overcomes his justice. So that is how a person should balance between fear and hope. That is how a person should balance between fear and hope.
The next part of the Hadith, I forgiven you for what you have done and I do not mind I have forgiven you for what you have done, and I do not mind. So let's find out what Allah will forgive this slave as long as he has those two characteristics. He's calling upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is hopeful in the last panel Tyler. As long as those two things are done, then Allah subhanaw taala will continue to forgive his slave and he does not mind and one of the most beautiful verses in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala discusses the concept of forgiveness. He says Kalia imagine that in a sort of water and food see him? Let's talk about tomorrow Mattila in the life of me, that all
my slaves that have transgressed against themselves, don't despair of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah Subhana Allah forgives all sins. And what's beautiful about this Hadith, but this verse is Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing the sinful slaves, right? He's not addressing the righteous slaves. He's saying, my sinful serve the ibrd. I live in a sort of modern to see him. So those slaves of minds we still think that they're my slaves that have transgressed against themselves, don't despair of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is so endearing, so comforting to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that even after we've transgressed ourselves, even after
we know what we did, we shouldn't have done that if we were to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanaw taala would still forgive us and he wouldn't mind. Now. What is interesting over here is a Colombia marklogic.
What is interesting over here is then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say, then you would seek my forgiveness and I would forgive you unless Shinoda goes on to say you would seek my forgiveness, and I would forgive you. It's the and macura and run. All of these words come from a three letter root word in the Arabic language from a law firm Andhra. Now, when you look at the root word of the law, it is a type of clothing that is used to protect oneself it is a type of clothing that is used to protect oneself. So we see in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when he entered Mecca, he had a muffler on his head, he had an affair on his head, which is a helmet. What
is the relationship between forgiveness and close? Which is a protection clause, which is a protection? Who can give me the answer to this? What is the relationship between these two words?
Do we have a prize that we can give away? Do anything we can give away? Any books? two slices of pizza, instead of one slice, we'll get two slices of bread on the back. You had your hand up first.
To general you're on the right track, but it's too general.
That's exactly what the buttons
To general we're looking for something specific.
We're looking for something specific. A lot Hawk, but I don't even know what's inside of this. It could be like a million dollars, you don't find out Don't tell us what it is. It could be something amazing. This could be like a ticket actually has a price on it
does definitely not a million dollars. And it's not a ticket to hedge, but it's something quite valuable. Still, it's still things still quite valuable. The relationship between the two, the seeking of forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and a shield and the helmet. Go ahead.
Thank you. Fantastic. Well, what's the relationship between the two?
That's all at least you mentioned an Al Hamdulillah towhead.
The term used to make istikhara the most very, very true Great example but it still doesn't show us the relationship between the two
fantastic that's very very true as well but still not showing the relationship between being protected and forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala
what is the
more particularly something else you're on the right track? You've given the best answer so far. So the hope of the people is in you right now you need to finish off the sentence protection from what fear the you know, fear this more than you fear the spears and the arrows.
sobre la and we sending out the army, and he's telling the people fear this more than you fear your enemy.
Frankly, fantastic. Allahu Akbar. Your sentence it is.
I hope that was a sigh of relief.
And it's like no, what is
it free, it's a protection from your sins, your sins will destroy you. So the relationship between clothes which protects you from a mcfar which is a helmet and forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala is that your your instinct is that shield that will protect you against your sins. Because if you don't have that shield to protect you from your sins, all of us are destroyed and annihilated. So it is through the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala that we are protected from our sins. It is through the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are protected from our sins and forgiveness in particular. It means that Allah subhanaw taala will pardon the sin will forgive the sin will protect
from the detrimental effects of that sin. Well unless you're fine with Allah will hide the sin. All of these things are encompassed in the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada. All of these things are encompassed in the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The relationship between Toba and is the flow of the relationship between Toba and its differ. When you look at these two terms. A lot of the times people think that they're wanting the same thing, but in reality, they're not. And to have a detailed discussion on this we need a separate halaqa but let us summarize the discussion on this. When the term is the cloud is mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah, generally speaking, it refers
to the act of seeking forgiveness on the tongue. So you will see a structural law. This is what it means that you know the is the cloud refers to the act of seeing a statute or law and obviously why the hardware while the heart is sincere, as well. The term Toba when it is used in the Quran and the Sunnah, it has like a snake six conditions that needs to be met, it has six conditions that needs to be met. Now, when these two words are put together in the Quran, and the Sunnah, then they will have separate meanings. However, if only one of them comes in the verse at a time, then both of them will be encompassed. Both of them will be encompassed. Okay? So if you find a verse in the Quran, that
says it's different, it means it's different and sober. If you find a verse in the Quran that mentioned Stober, it means it's the far end Toba. And when you find the verse that has both is the far end Toba. The least the Fall is the act of making a stick. And Toba is the act of giving up the sin. Toba is the act of giving up the sin.
No conditions of repentance. We said Toba has six conditions. We've mentioned this several times before let's go through it quickly. Number one is that the repentance has to be clear, purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not for the sake of your parents, not for the sake of anyone else. It is purely for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. When you decide to start praying five times a day, it shouldn't be because of peer pressure. It should be pure. The fact that yes, I was wrong. And I want to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'm now praying five times a day right purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Number two is the sin that you are committing. You give up
right away, you know you're doing something wrong. You don't have a prolonged period of time to give that sin up. You give it up right away. Number three, is that you should be adamant never to return to it. And this is where a lot of people make a mistake.
Like how can I be adamant towards something to give something up when it is a weakness of mine and I know I will probably go back to it and they know I will probably go back to it. Allah subhanho wa Taala he wants to see you be adamant. That's all he wants. Even if you were to continue, keep going back each time be adamant not to return to it. And Allah will continue to forgive I forgive you. But if you ever reach a life where you're like, you know what, I'm too weak to give up that sin. Then at that time when you have given up hope in repenting, then that is when your Cobra is nullified, that is when there tober is nullified. Number four, is that the slave should feel remorse and regret over
what he did, that you can't, you know, feel happy about the sins that you've committed, you need to feel sad, you need to feel remorse, you need to feel regret. Number five is that if you took the rights of anyone, you need to give those rights back, you slandered back with someone, you need to seek their forgiveness and praise them at the same time you stole something from someone, you need to return that back to the person. So if you ever took someone's rights, you have to give those rights back. And the sixth condition of tober is that it has to be done in this appropriate time before the sun rises from the west, or before the Angel of Death comes to you. Whichever one comes
first. That is when you know Toby needs to be done by that time. These are the six conditions of Toba that people mentioned these are the six conditions of Toba that people mentioned. And let's find what goes on to say, if you were to come to me with and you would then meet me without ascribing any partners to me. So let's find out, you know, concludes this last portion of the Hadith by saying that as long as we would continue to seek forgiveness from Allah make dua to him and be hopeful in the last panel Tada, we will Allah subhanho wa Taala would continue to forgive us. But there's one integral part over here, which is throughout this whole process, and before you die, and
even while at death, you could not be committing shoot with Allah subhanho wa Taala now who can give me a definition of shift? What is a good definition of shift? Allah mentioned shift in the Koran so many times in fact, it is the greatest prohibition in the Quran, who can give me a definition of what shift is about in the book.
So those are apps which are shipped but I need a definition that this is what should kids so that is how when you have this definition, then acts like going to the keyboard and making do it other than Allah can become active should go ahead but over here you Yes.
Associated associating someone or something with Allah subhanaw taala. In which in what so you have like three quarters of the definition associated a lot with partners in what
in worship, fantastic. Let me that's a very good definition. Let me give you a more accurate definition. It is to give a right which is exclusive to Allah subhanaw taala to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a right which is exclusive to Allah subhanho wa Taala to other than Allah subhana wa Tada. So for example, the act of creation out of nothing is exclusive to Allah to tribute that to Allah subhanho wa Taala would be an hour or two other than Allah subhanaw taala would be an Act to check to see that someone else knows the future, and knows the word of the unseen other than Allah subhanho wa Taala would be an act of shift to make dua to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala
would be an act of shift, right? So all of these things, they are exclusive rights of Allah. And when you give that right, which is exclusive to Allah to other than Allah, that is, what is an act of shift. And this is something that's very, very important to know. Nor religion is based upon purifying our heat and eliminating Schick right. So just like we need to know what the good deeds are, we also need to know what the bad things are so that we don't fall into them. And as a Muslim, we should know, you know, what is the right of Allah and what is the, you know, the the ship that he wants us to stay away from. So this is a discussion that needs to be had, when you look at how ship
is represented and manifest in you know, different countries in different societies. A couple of weeks back, we discussed the Hadith of the Wali and we discussed the amakhala a mama sukanya Rahim Allah he had written a 300 page book explaining that Hadith. And in that book, he mentions the story of a Hindu man who accepted Islam. And he mentioned that the Hindu man the second he understood what Islam was, he went and he destroyed his idols right away. But he said something very, very profound. He said, Well, it took me one day to destroy all the idols that I used to worship that were physical. I've spent my whole entire life trying to destroy the idols that are on the inside, trying
to destroy the idols that are on the inside. A lot of the times only think about should we think about someone making such the to an idol or you know, presenting foods to an idol, or going to a grave and making blah, yes, those are manifestations of shift. But there's also a manifestation of Schick which is rampant in our society. And in our times, when we don't see people going to the board, we don't see them going to the idols, but rather there it is of self magnification, where their desires become their Lord. their desires become their whole, you know, purpose of existence and living and in philosophy we call this hedonism. When
A person's sole purpose of existence is to fulfill his desires. And unless I know it's out he describes this in the Quran in surah jatiya, verse number 23, have you seen the one that takes his own desires as his Lord? Have you seen the one that takes his own desires as his Lord? So when the person becomes a complete slave to his desires, where his whole purpose is just about fulfilling his desires, then even his own knifes his own desires, can become an ILA his own desires can become you know, something that he worships besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I believe that's something that we need to be very, very careful of our own desires, our own ego, you know, they need to be
subdued within the boundaries of Islam, of course, they need to be subdued and you know, that the fulfillment, the obedience, it should be purely through Allah subhanaw taala alone, it should be through purely through Allah subhanaw taala alone. And it's amazing how the concept of shaking the concept of forgiveness are, you know, tied in together and certainly saw in two different verses. Allah subhanaw taala ties these verses together and certainly said verse number 48, and certainly servers 116 where Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us at the beginning of both of these verses in the law, do you feel when you should be doing identically Manisha, then Allah subhanho wa Taala does
not forgive that any partners should be associated with him, but he forgives everything other than that, meaning everything else Allah subhanaw taala will pardon forgive, except for ship. If a person dies upon shirk, then that's it. No, there's no hope for him at that time. He had opportunities to repent, he was shown the right path, yet he still chose the path of misguidance then that's when his fate is sealed. But anything other than that, Allah clearly mentions that he's willing to forgive and he's willing to pardon and this is what Allah subhanaw taala concludes this hadith with that as long as you did not commit shirk, with Allah subhanaw taala there is hope. There's unlimited you
know, infinite amount of hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as the person doesn't commit shoot with Allah subhanaw taala let me conclude the best way to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala emammal Bukhari he narrates from shadowed him the author of the love and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said say you that is the flower meaning the best ways to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala is the following and you'll find this inside Sohail Bukhari you'll find this inside his non Muslim it is the Doha well repeated on the video and inshallah you guys can you know learn it from the video as well. A llama Antara Buddha in the Holocaust anyway
anyone Abdo Kannada, deca, deca Mr thought rose will be coming shortly Massenet abou la cabina motyka de la bu will be done before clearly in the hood. I know that. This door over here at messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called it the best way to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when you reflect upon this do you see there are so many beautiful lessons in it. You recognize your relationship with Allah where you are the slave of Allah, Allah strong, you are weak, no one can forgive sins, other than Allah subhanho wa Taala you recognize the blessings of Allah, you recognize your sins, as well. And then you seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And that in some ways, what that actually entails. So it's very important that the slave of Allah, he learns this door. And the Messenger of Allah said about this door that whoever says it during the day and he dies at night will be entered into paradise, and whoever says it at night and dies during the day we'll be entered into paradise. So it's very important to know how to learn. And I hope that through this Hadith, we realized you know how great the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala is that Allah subhanaw taala looks for ways to forgive us through every good deed that we do. Allah Spanos, Allah is Forgiving some of our sins right? Through every record that we make sins are falling off
was the research that we make sense of falling off of us, every will do that we make sins are falling off of us. Allah looks for ways to forgive us and the slave of Allah should never disappear from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now let me conclude with the quarter remember, no, you remember that I promised you guys remember no Iraqi mala He states that there are different types of seeking of forgiveness. One type is where the person has a lot to forgive and remove any negative effects of his sins. This is sorry, this is the seeking of forgiveness for the sinners. This is the seeking of forgiveness for the sinners. Others seek forgiveness due to some shortcoming in their
manner of thanking Allah. Others seek forgiveness due to some shortcoming in their manner of thanking Allah. This is the seeking of forgiveness done by the righteous and the pious. Finally, there are those who seek forgiveness as a means of giving thanks to Allah. And this is the type of seeking of forgiveness that was performed by the prophets of Allah, Allah. This is the seeking of forgiveness that was done by the type of by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam where is the means of thanking Allah subhanaw taala and this goes back to the fact that when the slave of Allah recognizes how much Allah subhanaw taala loves to be sought forgiveness from the slave of Allah
would never stop seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala not only because we have so many sins that we have committed, that we need to seek forgiveness for, but due to the fact the one that loves us
It takes care that it takes care of us is pleased when we seek forgiveness from him, just to see his pleasure just to give him the you know, that pleasure, then this was what the slave would continue to do to to satisfy his Lord. subhanho wa Taala. So I conclude with you know that very sentiment, I pray that Allah subhanaw taala forgives us for shortcomings. Now let's find what Allah pardonable all of our sins, mela span with other purifiers in this dunya before the Acura Allah subhanho wa Taala makers of those that are accepted in this dunya and the Astra mela final data raise our status to be from those that are entered into all three of those without his sub Mohammed Amin. Allah has
sent him an article in Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam Subhana Allah Momo vmdk shawanda in the event, a stock photo go to a lake. And we pray that Allah subhanaw taala accepts from us all, any good that I've said is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone in all places due to him. Anything wrong that have said or have done is from myself and from Satan. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah forgives us all desert communicate. And for those of you that have been attending throughout the weeks, it's been a long journey, you know, spinal off, I think, for this series, we did about 45 or 4600 hours, just on this series alone in this year. So those of you that
stuck it out, I pray that Allah makes it heavy on your skill of good deeds. And, you know, hamdulillah it's been a very nice journey. One thing that I learned for myself, you know, a lot of people ask, you know, what is the book that you're using the use the explanation, and I'll share this with you guys, as a commentary on the amendment always 40 Hadith by Germano, Dean, zarabozo. And the original printing of it had three volumes, and there's a new printing that is in two volumes now. And you know, you may think to yourself, Subhanallah, where would a person find the time to read 1600. And actually, the conclusion of the Hadith is 1607 pages. And I think to myself,
honestly, genuinely speaking, that if a person tries to read 1607 pages, it's like reading an encyclopedia, right? It's not a book anymore. But when you have to, you know, go through it each weekend, and explain it each week and make sure you understand the concept itself. This has been the biggest lesson for me, and this is what I want to share with you that as human beings, we will never truly know what we understand. Until we attempt to teach it, we will never truly know what we understand until we attempt to teach it. So anything that you know, try to teach it to others. And this is part of you know, spreading and spreading knowledge. And at the same time it's fortifying
Your Own Foundation, it is fortifying Your Own Foundation. So this was a huge lesson for me that I'm sharing with you guys as well. And I hope what you guys have learned to you know, you'll share with others as well. I want to thank the other volunteers that you know helped with the recording how to the set up, I pray that Allah mixes have you on your skill of good deeds, all of these other cards that were done, they are recorded and they're up online on the ISC multimedia page on YouTube. And you can see them all there. Our next series that I will be starting is on aqeedah. So there's a poem that is written by the son of a Budo de sitter standing so you know, shouldn't be though the book of
Hades. His son actually wrote a book a poem called Hagia in Akita, it's 33 lines, and that's what we will be starting in January at the Wednesday, the eighth and eighth location so on Wednesday nights, we'll be discussing detailed advanced aqeedah and I'll probably take about six or seven holocausts, starting from January inshallah, you can check out the ISC webpage or the mailing list for details of timings and dates where it will start and I will address any questions that you guys have and hopefully the pizza should be here any minute as well inshallah our brother in the back Go ahead.
The recap will be at eighth and eighth on Wednesday night after a shot it says at 730 but you know that already are you go ahead.
Fantastic. So that story about the young boy, no, we we consider him from the only Allah subhanaw taala because he asked for rain Allah sent rain. He asked for death Allah gave him death. So this is a special relationship that he had with Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's what this Hadees indicates that when he asked for something Allah would give it to him right away. And the Hadith of the word he he does what it says that if he was to ask for anything else, find what the other would give him at that time. So the case of the idea of Allah subhana wa, tada is different from the from the rest of the slaves. But the one thing about let's find out, it still understands that, you know, whether
I'll give it to me now or gives it to me later. He's going to give it to me at a time when it is best for me. Yeah, but does that look a great question? Go ahead.
No, not at all. Not at all. A person should never intentionally commit a sin. I think I can perform Toba
Because what if you commit that sin and there's no time for Toba at the end, and this would be seen the Hadith and the story of Buddha Caesar, that step by step he kept on committing sin, and he never got a chance to repent till shaytan comes to me, he says, makes such that to me, and I will save you, he made says it to Allah to shaytaan at that time, and Allah took his life at that time, he never got a chance to repent. He never got a chance to repent. jazak Allah who said, Thank you very much.
Does that answer your question inshallah?
Christmas gift. Okay. So this is? You know, I know, it's a good question, but it's a technical issue. So the general case scenario is that as Muslims, we don't celebrate the celebrations of the non believers, particularly the religious celebrations, we were not allowed to to celebrate them. Now, we live in a time where everything is intermingled, everything is confused. Christmas, which was originally a religious celebration and holiday has turned into a commercial propaganda, right, like most other industries, they rely on Christmas to make their money, where they're hoping that people will celebrate Christmas, so that money can be spent, and the rich can get richer, and the
poor can get poor. That's what it is being hoped on. So now, understanding this concept, I would say that if someone gives you a gift in your office, and says, you know, happy holidays, accepted as a gift as something like that, and if someone specifically says, you know, here's a Christmas gift for you, then at that time, you may want to make a disclaimer, look, as a Muslim, I don't accept, you know, celebrate Christmas, but out of your generosity or creature, appreciate your generosity, if it gives you the gift still, at that time, accept it, if he takes his gift back how you're saved at that time. That's what I would suggest. But the exact opposite scenario, you know, you work in a
company, they're having, you know, a secret center, or like a Christmas party, you know, you're like, Okay, let me do good to my non Muslim neighbors. Let me give them Christmas gifts. This justification wouldn't be valid. If you want to give them gifts, give them gifts, you know, 364 days out of the year, besides Christmas, don't use the day of Christmas or the Christmas celebration to give them gifts, because this is would be considered a part of celebrating their celebrations, which as Muslims were not allowed to do. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Let's take the sisters question.
Salaam Alaikum. If we ask forgiveness and are forgiven, our sins still displayed on normal hisab? The answer to that is no. If Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven and pardon your sins, then those sins will not be on display at that time. If your sins are displayed on Yom Okayama, who will it matter to want to others people be too concerned with their own sense? And the answer is yes. No, in fact, one of the hadith of Isla de la vida, she, when the processes have said that people will show up on the Day of Judgment naked, I should have the law on her. She said O Messenger of Allah, you know, won't it be awkward for for men and women, you know, in that situation, and the person who swung by
saying that the affair will be greater or greater than that, on that day, that people won't be looking at towards one another in that manner? People will be worried and concerned about their own sense. And the answer is yes, you know, people will be concerned about their own sense, but at the same time, it is possible that some of you were since may be known to other people. So for example, if someone was a hypocrite, they did something with unpure intentions, Allah subhanaw taala will make open that hypocrisy is that hypocrisy was not repented from. So that will be made known to other people. When we go to gender, will we know what sins other people committed? Or do we forget?
Allah subhanaw taala knows best, but in general, there is no evil. So the sins that we committed are considered a part of evil from this dunya so inshallah It is hoped that they want to be remembered. Because you can imagine if someone did something wrong to you, and you know, your agenda and diversity agenda, you know, it'd be really awkward, but Allah is the most important one, the most kind is going to be no evil agenda. So I don't think that's going to be possible. You said that an act of shake is when we give something.
When you give something the rights that belongs to Allah, it is alleged, right, that we fear him and I think it's mentioned in the Quran.
Yes, one of those rights is that we fear him. But if you look at the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it is a fear which is enabling. So it enables the slave to do more. That is what the fear of Allah subhanaw taala brings about, whereas the fear of the creation, it brings like a form of paralysis where the person doesn't do anything whatsoever and they stop doing actions and that is the difference between the two. And what is being referred to over here by the fear of Allah subhanaw taala don't walk in front of the camera
is the fear of the what is being referred to over here is the supernatural fear. So one should not have a supernatural fear of his creation that anyone can give him, you know, a type of harm except by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. So if you think that this person can give you absolute harm, beyond
Which is beyond the control of Allah subhanaw taala then this type of fear is not allowed and would be considered a form of schicke. Allah subhanaw taala knows best, how do we not engage in shirk, if we have fears in this dunya I think that was answered in the previous question and unless you find out Allah knows best, so now the food is here and as a general principle, you know the food is here or discussions come to an end. Anyone that has any further questions you can ask me privately after while people are eating, and shall we can discuss your questions then dessert communicated to everyone for attending. Have a good night or Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
