In an hamdulillah hinomoto in Astana, one associate of when I was in the human Sudan fusina woman sejati armanino manga de la Fernando de la la, la la la la, la la la la la la la sharika was Sedona Mohammad Abu hora solo sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira.
So the first part of our discussion was the definition of Eman and what it constitutes, and who are the believers and things of that nature. And like we mentioned, our whole discussion is based upon this parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives of Eman And he says that the statement of a man is like that tree
is like a tree of aloha sabich was our our system whose roots are firmly grounded in the earth, for who has the center, which branches are high in the sky. Right? And what else is this tree do 30 Oh, Cola, cola is near and dear, that it gives us fruit at all times by the will of its Lord. So now we defined what this tree actually is like. And we defined what the root of this tree is like what is a man and how it settles in the hearts of this believer. Now our next discussion? Or how do we keep this tree firm? Meaning what are the things that we need to do to keep it free from or what are those things that we can do to protect our email and to make sure increases?
And then our third discussion, which is also included in this lecture is how or what the fruits of this tree are that what are the benefits and blessings of Emacs that Allah subhanaw taala grants us
so now starting with those things that we need to preserve and increase our Eman.
One of the first and foremost things that a person can do to protect and preserve and increases email is learn the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala
This is one of the first key ways in increasing and preserving one's email.
Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in Allah, he was a nice man. He attended Nevada mana the whole agenda
that is reported by Mr. mcquarry By the way, that Allah has 99 names 100 minus one,
he who preserves them will be entered into agenda. So now we see that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attaches the preservation of these names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala to Jenna, that he will be preserved them then Allah subhanho wa Taala will enter this person into Jenna. Now if one were to take a moment and reflect you will see that all three categories
fall into all three categories of the heap fall into the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. Firstly, what are the three categories of profit
Okay, now what do those three terms mean in English?
Because that's a lot. Okay. So the three categories of to hate like our brother mentioned deserve Hello Clara. They are so Haider obeah sociedad, Olivia, and he had asthma was the first
and the first one we mentioned is to his or her will via the Lordship of Allah subhanaw taala. And with the losses of Allah subhanho wa Taala encompasses and includes all the actions that are particular to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone from them are life and death from them, or the sending of rain from them is the withholding and giving assistance in this. These are all actions which are particular to lots of China with China, and this is what we call a Ruby
axworthy Olivia, then this is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala these are actions that Allah subhanaw taala requires from us and if we do not fulfill them, or if we direct them to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala This is when a person falls into prefer or shirk.
So those actions such as salah and cm, and Zakah and any other physical actions that Allah subhanaw taala requires from us if we were to do them for other than Santa Ana, this falls into schilke Aveda or sherkin Olivia, right? So there are those actions over here are those actions that Allah subhanho wa Taala wrote
Quiet formats, which are to be directed to him and him alone.
Now the third category we mentioned is LS now ciphers are the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. Throughout the Quran and the Sunnah Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to himself through various names and attributes
from them, or of man or machine, and medical kudos,
you know, and other than them. And so the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala like Alice
and newzoo Abrahamic
these are all attributes of Allah subhanaw taala to translate those we mentioned Alicia, Alicia, is a an elevation or highness. Right? And we mentioned above which is laughing. And we mentioned Alibaba,
which is anger. And we mentioned under zone, which is different. These are all attributes of Allah subhanaw taala that he does when he pleases. So now, how do the names and attributes or the learning of the names of an attribute affect the three categories of tawheed? The way they affect them? Is that from the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They have a different relationship. Each name has a different relationship with us, like the example we'll take from the very beginning, is that the most common name that we hear constantly, are Rosman and are watching, right. What is our Rosman and Rahim actually mean? Our watchmen is the one who has the most merciful, he has the
most mercy, right, meaning he is the most merciful and his mercy encompasses everyone and everything. The believer, the non believer, the animals, the human beings, and all the creation, His mercy encompasses everything as for him, then he is likewise the merciful, but this Mercy is restricted to the believers. And then some scholars even restrict it even further, that this is a mercy that will be shown in the locker alone, right.
So, now these two names, how do they affect us? First of all, the FIFA of rosmah or the attribute of rosmah, right, this is a this is a characteristic of Allah subhanaw taala. And obviously, this encompasses or is included in his rubia from his worship me that from the Lordship of Allah Subhana Allah is that he descends mercy, right, and he God's mercy to whom he pleases, right, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah has 100 mercy, from which he sent one down, which causes the human beings to be merciful to one another. So the origin of mercy is from Allah subhanaw taala. Right. Now, how it is this concept, so that's how it plays a role in the lobby of
Allah Subhan Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who bestows mercy and descended upon his creation. Now, how does this affect our Olivia? How does this affect our worship of Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Can anyone enlighten me inshallah?
us knowing that Allah is the Most Merciful? How does this affect our Elijah?
Consider that raising the hand.
Any idea? Like when you when we think that Allah is the one who is the Most Merciful?
What do we genuinely now putting a lot of Saiful a minute, what do we think about those people who are merciful? Do we not tend to like them? Do we not tend to love them? Do we not have this compassion for them? Right now this is the case with human beings. Now, I promise Hannah was the one who creates us and the one who sustains us, and the one whom we shall all return to, when we hear that He is the Most Merciful and the most compassionate. And no matter how many sins we commit, whether it's we, you know, in
the form of the seas, and that's how many comments then we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is still willing to forgive us.
What do we feel towards Allah subhanho wa Taala then do we not increase in our love of Allah Subhana Allah, do we not increase in our hope in Allah subhanaw taala Of course we do. Now for further enlightenment, the pillars of Elijah,
or three, right? Love, hope and fear. If no claim Rahim Allah Allah mentions in McGarity, Salah Kim. And we mentioned at the beginning of this,
that they give parables that almost final tally turbos so that we may understand and have a great understanding of what is meant and desired. So ignore that.
Rahim Allah Tada. He derived a parable for the pillars of Elijah. And he said that a bada is like a bird, right? a badger is like a bird, the head of the bird is love.
Right? through which it directs itself, meaning that if there is no love, then there is no ADA. Right? And then the two wings of the bird, or hope and fear, meaning that if you take one, take away one of the wings, it will still be able to fly, but not for very long, you know, that you will eventually go astray. And this is what you see that happened with some of the deviant groups, that matassa was a Sufi, they focus too much on the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And thus, they went astray. Right. And then likewise, the Horus, they focus too much on the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they went astray.
Right. And then likewise, the mercy I'm sorry, the concept of love that was actually for the head. It doesn't apply directly to this, but to the example of the Mercia, right, the Mojo, as we said, with the people who didn't include actions in the definition of human, they focus too much on hope. They like even if we don't commit any actions, Allah subhanaw taala will still forgive us. Right? So likewise, they went to stay. And these are the two opposite extremes. The quadric said that those people who commit sins are in the software. And then the Moses said that those people who don't commit any actions, they're internatia. So you see the two extremes, and they went astray, because
they focus on they focus too much on one of the pillars of each other.
So now, the point we are getting at is that once increments of love of Allah subhanaw taala and once the increment of hope in Allah subhana wa Tada, this naturally will affect your ADA. So now when you realize that Allah Subhana Allah is the most merciful, and He bestows mercy, this is how it is such a burden. I know this is just with a rough man. Think about how the other names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala affect you're a badass of Allah subhanaw taala. Think about when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about,
like say the attributes of anger, when you think about the attribute of Angola, pinata, Allah, this is not just increase the fear in your heart, that
you're very Lord, like the one who created you and sustains you, and controls everything and every aspect of your life. If he was to get angry at you, and saying, you know, because of this thing you committed, you're not going to be entered into gender, or you won't have to go to the housewife first. Before you know I'll let you entertain gender. Imagine how you would feel. And again, this is just an attribute of Allah subhanaw taala. You know, let's just say Aloha, aloha Bob. These are not from the names of Allah subhanaw taala, but this is just an attribute. So now just imagine this look at how this
name or attribute would affect your ADA. Now next time is when you're standing in Salah. Think about those names and attributes of Allah before you start your Salah. And look at the difference that you will find in a salon, you will have more for sure you will be more patient, you will seek more reward from your salon. And you see that this is also caused for you to actually benefit from Miss Ella is one of the greatest problems with the Muslims today is that when they play their salon
it's mainly along the lines of fulfilling an obligation like that the reason that most people pray is just because Allah subhana wa Jalla told them to the next level of your Islam and the man is praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala because you feel him and then more than that is because you love Allah subhanho wa Taala so much that you want to pray to him, right? These are things that you need to keep in mind and this is how not only you will obtain greater rewards for Allah subhanaw taala but you will increase yourself in terms of purification and in terms of closeness to Allah subhanaw taala and one thing to reflect upon is how Allah subhana wa tada tells us, that in the salata
Sangha, he will mukha that, indeed, the Salah, prevents us from performing lewd and evil deeds. Now, how many of us and how many of our predecessors before I pray this alone was five times a day, yet they still fell into sin. Now, how do we reconcile between these things? That almost panelists add on one hand is telling us that Salah prevents us from doing evil and moody.
Then on the other hand, those people who are doing the Select perform the Salah, at the same time are following or falling into evil eluded how do we understand this?
The way we understand this is that
Even though the physical appearance of these people is that they're playing Salah, and ourselves included, even though our physical bodies are there praying to Allah subhanaw taala our heart is not there think Allah subhanaw taala our loss is not there, our horseshoe is not there, and we're not playing the Salah as Allah. Allah wants us to play the Salah. But once when we reach that level of pace Allah as Allah wants us to play with wushu and airfloss and suffer, then it is at that time that the Salah will prevent us from from doing evil and loaded.
So this was the first point that if a Karim Allahu Allah mentions in terms of increasing one's image and preserving one's a man, that one of the best ways to do this is by learning the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala and obviously we can go on with this discussion for a very long time.
But inshallah, due to wanting to mention the other points we will continue. Secondly, he mentioned the brutal Quran, Allah was
reflecting upon the Quran in a general sense.
Right, we mentioned the ayah. In social and science answer it number two, well, last time it was Allah says,
Allah him I
that from the characteristics of the believers is that when the eyes of the Quran are recited to them, their Eman increases. So this is a promise from Allah subhanaw taala that the more Quran you listen to
your Emanuel increase. Now this is just the physical hearing of the Quran. You can imagine what reflecting upon it and then further acting upon it will use your email, it will only increase it more. Now, why do we call to reflect reflecting upon the Quran? reflecting upon the Quran, as you mentioned, is one of the greatest ways to increase one's mind with why is that the case?
Now, if we take another eye in the Quran, it certainly sounds like what lots of data says and I am number 82 to the Barona Quran, Well, okay, that means I will, okay I mean, and is it less than 250? Less than kathira? That Allah, Allah says, will they not then reflect upon the Quran, had it been other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, they would have found many discrepancies in it.
Now, imagine reading a book, from beginning to end filled with benefits. So this is knowledge that most of us will not have all Koreans have had, except through this book. And it is written in such a way that there is no contradiction in it.
No two places in the Quran, where you find contradiction. And no two places in the Quran, will you find opposing stories? No place in the Quran? Will you find a light or something that is untrue. Now, after having said this, and thought about it, will this not increase your email and your faith in the last panel to Allah? When Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the descriptions of gender? And you know, a lot of others are here. And I didn't want to live without it talking about the horrors and gender, does that not make you want and desire gender even more? And how about when Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about his jahannam and all the punishment that lies in it from the
boiling of the brain? And from the working out of intestines? And from the being left with fire? Does this not increase the fear in your mind and in your heart? All this lesson in the Quran? And then how about those stories?
That Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions from the solid Union and the MDR of the past those stories, when we hear about how they survived through the trials and tribulations and from the wisdom that they passed on to the people, will this not then increase our email? Of course it will. How many times can you hear the story of use of Elisa Nam? Yet each time you will find a new benefit from the story. And each time you will find a way that you yourself can be increased in patients.
All these things we find in the Quran. We just need to take a moment and reflect upon the Quran and after reflection, put that which we reflected upon into action.
So this is the second way that the fake Rahim Allahu taala mentioned that we can increase ourselves in the mind in reflecting upon the Quran, the very speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Thirdly, he goes on by saying
that the by knowing the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and by knowing his Sunnah
increases our email.
And obviously, this is on many levels, because we know that the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only does it contain the commandments and prohibitions and recommendations and dislikes, but also it includes the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his characteristics. So, firstly, let's take a look when a person has knowledge of all of the obligations and all of the positions and all the things which are disliked, and all the things which are like, What is one thing he is protected from? He is protected from doubts and whisperings, right? That's one of the ways that people deviate is that they are brought doubts and whispers are
safe on to them. And then they come themselves to these doubts and whispers, which when one has knowledge of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he has knowledge of those things which are compulsory, and noise of those things which are haram and noise are those things that you like and dislike, he is able to protect himself. One of the best ways to protect yourself from these doubts and we split is by increasing yourself in knowledge. And if knowledge is not the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then we do not know what knowledge is.
Secondly, we mentioned that the center also encompasses the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or the fear of the prophets of Allah Halima center. Now, if you take the Prophet sallallahu, serms life, from beginning to end, you are left with 1000s, if not millions, of miracles, and moments to reflect upon.
Now I want to take the example of what they call animal husbandry, or the year of sorrow from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was the year that Khadija the Allahu taala had died. And this is the same year that Abu Paula died. This is called the Amazon or the year of sorrow. Now, what role did Khadija rajala Hassan have played in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You see when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first received revelation. He ran home right away. He was shivering. He was scared. He didn't know what to do. He found solace and comfort in Khadija, his wife, nella Santos Allah be pleased with her. And throughout the mission of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was the one who supported him and backed him and granted him that comfort and stress that he needed.
And you can imagine what type of effect it would have had, when the source of tranquility and solace is taken away from you. When your main supporter, the one who is behind you at all times, is taken away from you. And then after that, the person who took care of you and raised you, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I will call him a man who loved him dearly, and whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam loved is taken away from you. You can imagine the effect that this would have on any one of us.
You can imagine the effect. It's like losing your wife and losing a parent in the senior. You can imagine the adversity and a catastrophe it would be for you. Yes. Look how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through this very trial and tribulation continued with his Dawa. Is this not an example for us? Do we not derive lessons from this? And this is just one instance, from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then how about the other instances from his life? Can we not do as many other lessons? Of course we can. And this is how studying the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only in terms of the lawful and prohibited, but the actual life and
characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will increase our email as well.
in terms of increasing ourselves an email
is reflecting upon the creation of Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, obviously, the creation our lesson Hana with China is many, you know, you cannot it's almost impossible to enumerate all the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But there are some things that will increase our Eman more than others. First of all, the recognition of Allah subhanho wa Taala through his creation. I mentioned this previously, but for the sake of benefit, we'll repeat it again, is that there was a Bedouin man, you know, he was by a bee, or by an ocean side, and he was playing his Salah, and another man comes up to him, and he goes out of that, how have you come to know your loyalty? Right? So this worshipper, even though he might have not had any fun
Education, the wisdom that he was going to destroy Islam he said
he was at
the mercy center without a barrage in one hour do that jesse jackson will do that margin of Allah. Allah Allah up.
He said that
camel droppings necessitate the presence of a camel.
And likewise, footsteps necessitate the presence of someone walking.
So, if this is the case and you agree and submit to that, then how about all the pathways that Allah subhanaw taala put on this earth and all the constellations that Allah subhanho wa Taala placed in the sky, and all of the ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala placed in the oceans does not necessitate the sizes of alopecia and phobia. Of course it does. So now this is how through reflecting upon the creation of Allah subhana wa tada one recognizes the Presence of Allah subhana wa Tada. So this again, is one of the best ways to recognize Allah subhanho wa Taala and to increase our EMA and in him. Now, if this is just the case that a Bedouin nine sounds, how about those of us who are
educated and have studied biology and have studied the human anatomy, or those people who have studied geology and studied how rocks are formed and how they are destroyed? How about their Eman And Allah subhanaw taala she will not even be higher than this our Bedouin man, of course it should, the more knowledge a person has, the more he should use it, to come closer to Allah subhanaw taala There is not a single knowledge that is on this earth, except that it will bring you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Now one may ask, how about knowledge of sick and Cofer? How will this bring you closer to Allah subhanaw taala Now let's take a moment and reflect upon another verse of poetry,
where the poet said out of the serve Allah Allah subhana wa kidlit aqui, woman narikala Hara Anisha coffee that I learned even not for the sake of evil, but rather to abstain from it. For whoever knows evil and knows good and does not distinguish it from good is bound to fall into it.
Like to even know is that evil can be used as a form of protection. So as we know it can be used to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala if it is contemplated in the proper way,
the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala
that the more we remember last time it was either the more we are increased in our email.
Even SR Rahim Allahu taala, he mentioned that
the example of a human being who remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the example of a human being, who doesn't remember Allah subhanaw taala is like that Allah says,
when a fish is in water, it will live and survive. And this is the example of human beings that as long as he's remembering Allah subhanaw taala he will stay healthy and he will survive. But when you take that human beings and distract him from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala or take away the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa sallam from him, then he becomes like that sick, once it is taken out of water, and we all know what it looks like. It shrivels up and it starts bouncing and jumping around, and it's flat and it is unable to breathe, and eventually dies due to lack of air.
This is the case of human beings that we've taken away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala he has nowhere to go except towards destruction. And through remembering Allah subhanaw taala through saying are as caught in the morning and the night and through thing as car after the Salawat we protect ourselves and we protect our mind. we insure ourselves genda By doing so, for have we not heard the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's what we said Subhana Allah 100 times he will be granted upon change and
we insure ourselves by this. So why is it that we do not remember Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times.
Allah subhanho wa Taala when you award this, he doesn't just reward us in the academic, but He grants us blessings and rewards in this dunya as well. Like we mentioned yesterday in the hookah, what are the other blessings of the nature of Allah subhanaw taala that it is still our physical that Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant us peace and tranquility for Allah Subhan Allah Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah
sotto Raja number 28. Allah says that it is through the remembrance of Allah, that the heart point West. And likewise Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Ayah 97 when Amina saw the Hanuman Zakat in our own Bahama, we don't know who hired on by Eva, that whoever performs a good deed, regardless of if he is male or female, as long as he is a believer, then we shall bestow upon him a good life. That Allah subhanho wa Taala bestow is goodness in our lives, and allows us to leave to lead lives of righteousness, through our deeds through our Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, what is the parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives those people who don't remember last time I must note that I mentioned into a baja woman our data decreasing Allahu marisota, monka Ernesto Yama, Yama, Yama, Kannada De Lima ha subterranea Mercado, la sera COVID akademika, sky to NASA, NASA, waka Danica Leo messenger, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and those people who turn away from my remembering, then they will have lives of hardship and congestion. And they will be raised as people who are blind. And they will say, Oh my Lord, why is it I've been raised as someone who is blind when I was able to see. And then Allah will say, that is us our signs and our eyes to
you, but you turned away from them, you neglected them, you were heedless of them. So likewise, today, you will be neglected and put aside. And we made the list of analyzing not only in this life, we live a life of hardship and congestion. If you don't remember last time it was Allah, but also Allah subhanaw taala promises that those people who do not remember him will be raised as individuals who are blind, bright, because we neglected the eyes of truth to the signs and verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So one of the best ways to preserve your Eman and to increase it is to stay constant upon the star of the morning and the night and the star after every Salah.
The next way to increase your Eman
is by learning the formula or the benefits that is being granted. Or what they call mahasin National Islam, the duty of this religion. And what we mean by this is how Islam grants stability to society, that through lawful marriage. Islam allows people to have children with parents who are responsible for them and who will raise them. And through Islam.
Allah grants rights to the poor and to the week that they may not be taken advantage of. And through Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala grants power to the people who are robbed and beat up. And other than that, through the photos, or through
criminal punishment, where the hands are chopped off, if they steal, and if they kill intentionally, then they are killed as well. These are rights that Allah subhanaw taala grants through the Sharia that Allah subhanaw taala grants through this religion. And when one contemplates the justice of this deed, it should increase his email as well.
1.0 we only know how many point seven
six was in the center. Okay.
we make the selection. Okay, let's make this last point is our
so the seventh and last point, littler hit Allah is that by
trying to increase once a month. And what we mean by this is by trying to have a floss and all of his actions and trying to have a sense in all of his actions. Allah subhanho wa Taala promises that you will increase your emotions through it.
And we see this through a lot of actions as well a lot of recourses. Let's take patients wedding for example, like and through the seeking of knowledge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, in memory alone, we're in them and
that knowledge comes by seeking it like that those people who sincerely strive in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala to seek knowledge, then Allah subhanaw taala will grant it to them. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in memel Hello, hello. That persevering
will come by trying to persevere. Meaning that in times of anger, when it's very, very difficult to control yourself, if you try to have patience, Allah will grant you patients.
And when you try to find coolness, Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you coolness. And this is why you see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said Mansa Barasa bhairahawa, that he would like to have patience, then Allah will grant him patience. So, likewise, those individuals who seek to increase the man, always the true message of this area, like we mentioned previously, and through having a plan in your actions, making the actions more sincere, you know, trying to have more tissue and the Salah, trying to be more friendly towards your fellow brothers and sisters, trying to fulfill the rights and obligations that Allah subhanaw taala has put on you in terms of your parents
and your neighbors. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase your Eman through these things. And this is one of the most important points because through color consistency and these actions, you will see that you were that you are affected the most. This is something you will do on a question in a on a constant basis that you stack with sulla five times a day. With each Salah, you try to improve your Salah, you will see your family several times a day, each time you see them, speak to them in a nice and soft voice. smile at them, you will see your neighbors so often try to offer them gifts, and share the food that you have. So all these things you will do on a regular consistent and
constant basis. So this is one point that all of us need to pay attention to. And this is one of the ways that we will increase our demand the most. Because indeed the most beloved access to Allah subhanaw taala are the most consistent of them. And this is one of the actions that we can be most consistent of. And I can see some of the brothers are a bit tired. Because I know I've been studying for a while. So let's do this inshallah. The last part, or the last section of our talk is the benefits or blessings of EMA or the foods that history actually gives. So let's take a quick five minute break. Everyone stand up, walk around a bit, and inshallah we'll continue after five minutes.
vizilite Allah. So at 530 we'll start up again, Santa Coloma de Hambrick. I said Allah Allah and I stopped hirokawa to Eric, please finance on the comeback.
What's the llama masala Mahabharata carlina, Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as nine.
So we mentioned in the first two discussions on this parable of the man, he mentioned that the parable of the man that Allah subhanaw taala gives in the Quran is that of a good tree. And this good tree, it needs defining. So we did that. In the first discussion, we define what a man is defined to the believers are. And in the second discussion, we discussed various ways to protect this tree, and how to ensure that it continues to grow. And in our final discussion, pertaining to this topic, is what are the foods that this tree gives off? What are the benefits that we get from email?
Right as Allah subhanaw taala said at the end of that terrible, so say Allah has been in Vietnam on behalf that this tree of email, or this good tree gives this fruit at all times by the will of its Lord. So what are the fruits that we can read from this tree from this tree?
So again, like we did with the previous discussion, we will take approximately 10 benefits. Even though the safe Rahim Allah, he mentions more than that, but we'll just take 10 and realize Allah we will finish by six o'clock. So one of the first benefits of this trick is that through email, Allah subhanho wa Taala grants us wilaya meaning he makes us of his close companions, he makes us of those people whom Allah subhanaw taala grant protection to our hanos Allah says in Surah, Yunus. Allah in Alia Allah, the homophone la himolla homea known that indeed, it is the Olia of Allah, that has no need for fear, nor will they have any need to worry. Now who are the only of Allah? Allah subhanho
wa Taala. He ends up the ayah by saying, I levena am I know what can we attack on that they are the people who have emailed and used to have Taqwa of Allah subhana wa Tada. So now what exactly does it mean to be under the lie of Allah subhanaw taala What does it mean to be from Allah from Allah chosen slaves? One of the benefits from it is as Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
In Soto dakara
Allahu Allah your levena am I know your courage, a woman of bolo Murthy in a note that Allah is the Protector of those people who believe. He takes them out of darkness and brings them into light. Meaning that in the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala he takes you out misguidance and brings you into guidance that brings you out from the darkness into the light, he will make your life more meaningful, he will have more rewards, and an abundance of mercies in store for you, these are some of the things that we get through the wilaya of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is point number one.
Point number two is that
a person who has complete email
is entered into gender without going to the health plan. Right? That Allah subhanho wa Taala He grants gender to the person who has complete email without going to the alpha as to the person who has email, but if not perfected, then he will go to the Hellfire and then it will be entered into gender. And this is only for the believer. Allah subhanho wa Taala says and so to recap, around Ayah 108 in the levina ama no amylose Polly has no home genitals or dose he knew sooner, that indeed those people who have imagined and do righteous deeds, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will bestow upon them what exactly it will bestow upon them. Genesis.
Right. So this is another blessing of a man, that through a man you can get not only genda but the highest agenda, the agenda that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when you ask Allah for agenda, ask him for genesis of the highest agenda.
Thirdly, the third benefit of email is that Allah Subhana Allah will protect you from evil and harm. And this is more specific than the lie of Allah subhanaw taala This is more specific in the sense of physical and spiritual harms. Allah Subhana Allah says, In Surah Al Hajj is 38 in a lie, your death your anila Deena Am I know that Allah subhanho wa Taala protests and words of evil from those people who believe so from this, is imagine all those times that you had a ditch in front of you, right? But you just happen to stumble over it, instead of following into it. Allah subhanho wa Taala protected you and all those times, when you may have been, you know, close to a stove, and your
sleeve has been over it. But your shirt didn't catch fire. Allah Subhana Allah protected you from this fire, all those instances where you are nearly in a car accident, but Allah subhanho wa Taala protected you from it. These are the physical protection of Allah subhanaw taala. And as to the spiritual protection, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect you from delta and will protect you from whispers and will protect you from bad company that will vent you those as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect you through your email and this is another blessing of email.
And this is possibly the right phone number for that Allah subhanho wa Taala through email, He grants that a life of content and peacefulness that we mentioned this previously. And just to repeat the is Allah Spanish Allah says in Isaiah 97, Miami lasallian visitor in our own de la who are mostly known for language,
that whoever does a righteous deed, whether he be male or female, as long as he is a woman, Allah will bestow upon him a good life. That through Eman Allah subhanho wa Taala grants this life of peace and tranquility and a purpose.
A life where we feel as if we belonged and we know what we're doing. We're not in a state of discontent. And we're not
in a state where we don't know what we don't know what we're doing. And we're not in a state of confusion or anxiety, but whether through email, Allah subhanho wa Taala granted peace and tranquility.
fifthly through our human and it's a very important point to understand and reflect upon, that Allah subhanho wa Taala granted acceptance of our actions.
This is a very important point to understand. You know, many times you hear
especially from progressive Muslims as they like to say that people like money
Teresa and Gandhi and all these people they're all going to be engender because of the righteous lies that he lived and all the good deeds that they did for humanity and humanity as a whole and all the services that they provided. But in reality, the main condition for your actions to be accepted is your email.
Now, how does Allah Subhana Allah address the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in sources Zoomer?
Before we get to that ayah right?
Take a moment and reflect at who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best of creation. The person who had the most righteous deeds.
The person who had the most sincerity and taqwa like how does Allah subhanho wa Taala address him in Surah to Zuma?
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that in a suraksha la hubbardton Amma look, Vanessa coonan and you know
that if you are Mohammed, if you are Mohammed, were to perform Siddiq with Allah. The best have created the person with the most taqwa the person with the most racist deeds. If you were to perform silk with Allah La Habana Moloch. All of your deeds will become null and void while at the Conan manual fashion. And with assurity you will be of the losers. So this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now how about those people like us, like other than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? If we were to perform hit with a left hand with Allah, may Allah protect us from it? What would happen to our deeds, when we probably have this five or six
good actions? Obviously, it is a lot easier to render no invoice. So that was the case with deposits of a Mohan, he was selling the best of them imagine how about other than him. So the first condition of your deeds to be accepted? Is that you have to have a man and how does Allah subhana wa Allah talk about those people from the Gita, who came forward to speak like Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, la cadena Elana on Illumina emmalin so Jana who had a mentor that will bring forward the DS that he did in front of them and will make it into scattered
every single good deed they thought they did in this life, due to them not having iemon Allah subhanho wa Taala were converted into scattered dust.
So it's a kind of La halabi. Look at this great blessing. Through Eman Allah subhanho wa Taala grants you acceptance of your deeds.
Moving on to a next point.
And this is point number seven, six. Point number six. That through our Eman Allah subhanho wa Taala He grants us guidance
through our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala he will grant us guidance. Allah subhana wa Allah says in the legend, our inner levena emmanuella salejaw yahagi humara Bumi Imani him, there are those people who believes and do like this deep then Allah then the Lord will guide them through the email that through your email, Allah Subhana Allah will guide you towards what is best.
Now a point to note over here is that through our Eman Allah subhanho wa Taala also answers our do ask, how many times in the Quran, do read at the beginning of the webinar or you hear robina in a manner that Oh Allah we have believed the grant is such and such, like the famous example being fulfilled and as a no brainer because Rhonda Tina was often an algebra that Oh Allah, we have believed. So we are asking you through our email, right, that you forgive for us our sins.
And you fall in first our shortcomings. And you got this debt and rising with the righteous people. So through our email, Allah Subhana Allah grant says, this application, or graduates, guys are supposed to grant the answer to house applications. And this is true guidance assume that those people who have you learned they were guided to making do I in such a manner through reading the Quran. So this is what Allah subhanaw taala teaches us.
That it is true
that Allah Subhana Allah allows us to feel peace and tranquility, in times of adversity.
If you go back to sort of dakara around
163 Allah subhanho wa Taala he starts off by saying, Yeah, you're letting me know that all you people who claim faith or people of his stature, you know, the summary was Allah, that sick patients to suffer and solace in a law study. Right? And then keeping an eye on Allah subhanho wa Taala. He goes on to say, well, no one can be a mineral Kofi well joy when oxy milligram olive oil unfussy was a mirage. What the hell is forbidden and levena is a asaba Tomasi, but don't call in la la. La hora de Haan, right? Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, that, oh, you who believe, seek
assistance and patience, seek assistance through your Salah and patience, Indeed, Allah is with the patient. And then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say after two is that indeed, We shall test you. Right? Indeed, We shall text you later when I number one, there can be a male host, that we shall test you with something in terms of fear, and in terms of hunger, and in terms of a loss in your world.
Right. And then almost China, which Allah ends up by saying what the Sierra saw beneath that give glad tidings to those who are patient.
Right now within our panels. Allah goes on to say, I levena that was a patient, that along with the man who had patients, who are they, they are the ones when they are afflicted with a trial, they say in alila, he were in radiology, right? That they say to Allah we belong, and to Him we shall return. Now what does Allah Subhana Allah reward them with? Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,
that these are the people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala sends His blessings upon
and he is the one whom the mercies are descended upon them, and they are the people who are rightly guided. Now, this peace and tranquility that you face, even in terms in terms of the biggest of trials, you will only face or be granted future your Eman that we know that through one Eman, Allah Subhana Allah grants them trials and tribulations, that when you accept this man, when you claim the man for yourself, Allah Subhana, which Allah will tell you, unless time without assistance, so it's an uncle, both a hottie Vanessa, Nutella, konnyaku Emma never home life. That is nine times think that he will be left openly to proclaim that say we believe and not to be twice, of course not. This
was the last panel dialysis. So with email, you will be twice. But being tried is not the issue. It's how you face that trial, and how you set that trial that distinguishes the good from the bad as well the believer is patient during his trial, and he accepts it from the corner of Allah subhanaw taala. And he is pleased with it. And he finds a way to allow us assistance to get over the oil. Yet the person was weak in mind, or the person was no Eamon, he sees the smallest of trials as the biggest of catastrophes.
You'll he loses $1. And he starts complaining that he's gone bankrupt. After
you get a scratch on your car, and all of a sudden the whole car is destroyed. Like you make a mountain out of a molehill. This is how the non believer or the person who was a weekend you might be with this child, but the person who has in mind when he loses $1 or whether he loses $100 he says that this money came from Allah, He granted it to me and he takes it back when he pleases. And in Salah when the time is like he will grant it to me once again, you see a huge difference between the attitude of the believer and the attitude of the non believer and its attitude changes through one's mind.
And moving on to our last point this Allahu taala.
From the benefits of Eman
And from the greatest of them
actually before we get the videos we get to that point we have 10 minutes inshallah and I don't want to finish early, make the most of these 10 minutes.
From the things I've mentioned, is there anyone who feels I've left something out in terms of the benefits of email that you know for open discussion, what are some of the other benefits that we granted we get from our email? Since Allah let's open up the phone. So share things that you feel are blessings from your email.
And don't tell me you guys can think of anything.
Sincerely, okay. What do you mean by sincerity?
Okay, and how does this benefit yourself?
Like, what's the benefit that you guys can get out of it?
Okay, so the brother he mentioned is Allah Farah, let's do our Eman. Every action that we do, we try to make it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And you're constantly just trying to increase your good deeds. And how we apply this is that even those actions, which are mobis wisdom within themselves, like eating, and drinking, and sleeping, and having marital relations, these are all actions which are mobis by but when we make a righteous intention, and start with the name of Allah subhanaw taala and do it for his sake alone, we can gain closest Allah subhanaw taala and seek reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even those things, which are a necessity for us, like eating
and drinking, when they are done properly. Anyone else on the floor, have anything to share in some fidelity?
But I mentioned that through our email, we're satisfied even with a little bit and this goes back to the chapter of the father of Allah subhanaw taala, which we'll be discussing in more details later on. When are you actually discussing conduct that through the quarter of Allah subhanaw taala and through our Eman in Qatar, that even if Allah, Allah grants us a little bit, we're satisfied with it. Because we believe that whatever Allah Subhana Allah gives us, it is for our own benefit. And it is possible that Heidelberg panels that have given us more something bad may have happened, or some sort of discussion may have befallen us, like an example being How many times do we see our brothers
and sisters in Islam, that once they are granted money, they start losing the deen that the dean is no longer a priority to them, once you start getting money and from the fitness world, that you lose your genes. So now just because Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you a little bit of money, as long as you have your deen You should be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala that it is possible that having given you more work, he might have taken the deen away from you. So this is why we need to thank Allah Subhana Allah even for the little that He has given us, because the key thing is having blessings in that little and being satisfied and being able to achieve what needs to be achieved
And you know,
So, Albert has mentioned that through Eman, you gain that feeling, or that ability to distinguish between right and wrong. That through our Eman we feel sinus and modesty in front of not only our fellow brothers and sisters, but in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ziva, from doing evil and wrong deeds. And when a man is taken away from an individual, you can see that this thing is as well, that when a person has a man, he's going his beard, and you know, he's wearing clothes, which are befitting for Muslim Muslim to wear. But as soon as his Eman goes away, you shave his beard off. And you see that along with it. A lot of other things happen as well, that you know, you start listening
to music that has cooking in it, or has, you know, all sorts of weird topics in it. And then you'll start watching movies. And then you'll start having a girlfriend and all these other things that due to a weakness in his image or deficiency and if he loses sight between right and wrong, that he is unable to distinguish between right and wrong. And that feeling inside of what they call modesty and shyness is taken away from him that he commits to one sin, you know, you'll feel guilty to commit a second sin, you feel even less guilty till a point until he will reach a point where he no longer feels guilty for any of the sins that he commits. And again, this is a very, very big blessing of
anyone else saw this will be the last one before we conclude for Lucy
Our brother mentioned
that through email and like we mentioned previously, when is able to overcome
extraneous circumstances, we're which require a lot of patience and a lot of strength. And through email, not only is able to comfort himself in believing that this is the will of Allah subhanaw taala. But he is also able to comfort others and reminding them of how this is a trial or a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how in returning to him
is the only way out.
Now, the point, I'm going to end off with us they say, you save the best for last. But I feel that all the points that are not only that I mentioned MSA for him Allah mentioned, but also the points that were mentioned on the floor. Each one of them has its own special and valuable place, not only in Islam, but in each of our hearts. Because we can all we can all feel, you know, a relationship with each point in a specific situation, in terms of guidance for you, you know,
Allah, Allah guided you through the manual, something in the Quran, and he tried to implement it right away, and how from the protection of Allah subhanaw taala Well, you may have been in this terrible car accident, and your car is totally demolished, but you came out unharmed. You know, we can all we all have scenarios in our lives, where we face such things and how we can all relate to the blessings of a man on a on a subjective and personal level. But one of the things I wanted to say for the last is how Allah subhanho wa Taala through email, he always gives glad tidings to the believers, whether it be in this dunya or nbrc, Allah,
Allah, Allah says, in various places, while Bashir is meaning, right, WA Bashir L, Edina m n. o, Muhammad Ali has both of these eyes are mentioned in sudo Docker, that giving glad tidings to the believers. Now almost hanos, Allah is always giving glad tidings to the believers, whether it be in terms of the accuracy and how they will have dinner, or how they will have live lives of content and peacefulness in this dunya or how Allah Subhana Allah will put Baraka in the businesses in this life. If they do this, they do the transactions in a hollow manner. So I must find out what Allah is constantly giving us like tidings. And this is one of the things that a Muslim should have, as the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
is to help Buhari, Baba 0000 that gives like hiding and do not make the people run away, meaning by giving them bad tidings and facilitate the affairs to the people and do not make them difficult. Then even like basically follow the example of a left hander with Anna knee that always give my time to the people that always give people good news, always try to facilitate their offense. And one thing that I related is that even though it isn't related to giving like tidings Exactly.
to the believers, it was more in terms of giving. You know, bad news to the non believers is a story that took place between Edna Hagia Alice Kalani Rahim Allah, the author of
subtle body, the explanation for her body and it's Allah will make this last point inshallah, before we went for Salah
is that as we know as Naga Rahim Allah, he was a great scholar of Islam. And Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him a lot of wealth and a lot of honor and respect in this dunya to such a degree that he became one of the more wealthy people in this dunya and he was honored and he became a judge. And he was in Egypt at one time, and he was waiting on his horse through the village. And his horse obviously went very fast. It was well kept and well groomed. And likewise he had nice clothes and was well groomed. And the he came across this Jewish men and Jewish men is like, look at you. You know, your Prophet said that this dunya is the prison for the believer and the paradise for the non
believer. Yet I am a slave. I'm wearing raggedy clothes. I have, you know, a disease on my foot and I'm unable to move properly and I don't have strength and I'm weak. Yet Look at you. You're dressed so nicely. You know you have a beautiful house. You have a nice horse. You have a nice family. So how
Do it with your pup with not truthful. To it in the huddle, Rahim Allah, he said, Indeed, he is affordable must know that he is the most truthful of the truthful, for indeed, anything that I have right now, in terms of blessing, then it is nothing that is in it is nothing compared to what is in store for me, in general mean that I'm being imprisoned right now that even it's good that you see on you, I know is nothing compared to what I would have in general.
And as for you, all this hardship and misery that you're going through, this is your agenda. This is your paradise, there is nothing compared to what you will be sitting in the Acura and I was like, the first time I heard that story, I was practically in tears and how cheap it is to Sonoma. So, like I said, isn't exactly related to beginning of life tidings for the believers, but at least it was, you know, getting the bad tidings to the non believers. So what I know is that anything that has said that was correct, is from Allah subhanaw taala and with his Sofia, and anything that was incorrect in terms of my shortcomings and mistakes, is from myself and from the whispers of safe on
