We've reached the verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, it does not sell out on Steam, that guidance to the straight path or Allah. And you know, this topic of guidance is a very touchy and sensitive topic to me. Because I've seen so many things happen in my life, I have which I want to share a couple of stories with you,
you know, of all the things we take for granted. In this world, I think guidance is the biggest thing that we take for granted. You know, we often say that you don't know the value of something until you lose it. And this is most particular, when it comes to guidance, that you do not realize how valuable your guidance is, from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And until you lost that guidance, and I want to share a couple of stories with you.
Growing up, I had a pretty difficult childhood, in the sense of my relationship with my sister, it was a very difficult relationship for me. So Pamela, you know, I remember every time she would bring a friend over, it wasn't sufficient that I'd have to hide in the basement. But I'd have to leave the house altogether. You know, I could never meet any of your friends, I was too big of an embarrassment. And what ended up happening was, I'd always end up going to my aunt's and uncle's house. And they had a cousin or so they had a daughter that was six months younger than me, he was my cousin. And naturally since they went to their house, so often, we developed almost like a
sibling like relationship, in the sense that everything became competitive in nature. So when I would get my report card, my parents, you know, rather than focusing on how I did, they would ask me, How did your cousin do? And did you beat her or not? You know, that was the type of relationship that ended up happening. And, you know, I had a personal victory, because she always beat me and everything. She beat me in school, she had a better computer than me, a lot of her, her. She got a bicycle before me. Everything happened before me, except her until we went from our driver's license. And, you know, literally on that day, I was like, I had enough You know, I'm the guy like,
she can't get her driver's license before me. It's not right. You know, and I'm making dua to Allah literally, I was making blood to Allah, I'm like, all I'm pleased, that are filled today, you know, doing better.
And, you know, she comes home, she did a driving exam, and she's all crying. And in the back of the house, I'm like, pick up at a lot of work.
And, you know, that was the type of relationship we had, obviously, I Peter, I got my driver's license before the law, but that's not the point. Just to exemplify our relationship even further, we will memorize the Koran together. And I remember,
you know, we were competing in either finishing juice, I'm not just the Barack, I can't draw which juice it was. But I finished first in that, like, literally by a day only. And the day we finished them like So did you finish your night? And she's like, No, I did for john like, haha, sucker. You know, you suck. And that's like the competition that we had. So just to give you further glimpses, I remember that when we went to driving school together, you know, we walked into class, there was no other seat, except for a seat next to a girl. And you know, she already had a seat next to the girl. But when I got there, there's no other seat except for a girl. And she was like, so hardcore. She's
like, you know, don't sit over there. It's not permissible for you to sit next to a girl. And I remember that. It's a lot of time came and it was time to pray. And I'm like, I'll just pray when I get to go home. And she's like, No, you have to pray right now, before you delete like that. You can't delete a Salah whatsoever. And then I remember we got a bit older, you know, she wanted to wear his jilbab her parents didn't want her to wear jilbab. They're like, this is too much. You're getting too too religious at this time. So I went ahead to intercede. I argued with her parents two words above. And eventually she started reading jilbab. Now, I eventually went to Medina and she
went on to continue with secular education. I eventually came back and you know, the jilbab had come off, and she's just wearing hijab. a year or two went by even the hijab came off. Another year went by and the Salah had been abandoned altogether, not a single Salah is being prayed. And then you know, I spoke to her parents and I'm like, what's going on? What happened? You know, I'm remember all these days where she's like, Don't sit next to women. Don't delay your Salah. You know, we're competing in memorizing Quran. And now she's become an individual that doesn't wear the hijab doesn't wear the jilbab. And in fact, if you tried to bring up religion with her whatsoever, you
know, she just explodes on you, you know, just goes absolutely ballistic. I remember another example studying at the Islamic University of Medina. This was a brother who was like four or five years senior to me. He graduated from the faculty of shediac, the same faculty that I graduated from, and I remember, you know, following up on him, what happens to him after and he went back to the States, that's where he was.
And eventually he left the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. together as a graduate from Cydia, he ended up leaving the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala altogether. There's another example that was recently brought to my attention. There's this famous series of books on Al Qaeda by Sheikh Omar Lashkar in English, we have it in eight volumes. Similarly, you know, this book it was translated into Spanish as well. And the sister who translated this book into Spanish, you know, she spent a good 10 years or so translating this work as specialists and nakida you know, later on you find out that even her you know, she left the deen of Allah subhanaw taala she no longer believes in God. And you keep
seeing examples of this and it's extra Pinilla what is going on in this world? These are people who stuck to their Deen so strictly and they held on so tightly, word Where did it go? What happens to them and that is when you truly realize that guidance is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And like all other blessings, Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives it and he takes it. And this is why guidance is so important to hold on to so important to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for because you never know when Allah subhanaw taala is going to take it away. And the biggest example of this from the self is the example of Abu Bakar Adela one and the first two years of Abu Bakar when he used to
leave the salon, particularly in salon Margaret, they noticed that in the third row of Muslim, Abu Bakar rhodiola. One was taking an excessively long time that you know, usually the man is only going to read circle Fatiha and that's where he'll stop. But Alberto de la knew he was silently reciting something else and he would start crying. So after several weeks had gone by the Sebastien Yabba bucket What are you reciting? What is it that's making you cry in the third record? And you're only reading sort of idea, and Nobu boca de la one we mentioned at that time, that in this locker, I start reciting the verse from Surah Allah marohn Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Robin Allah to the
guru bonobo, they had a tener that Oh Allah do not deviate our hearts after you have, you know, guided it. You look at the example of Abu Bakar of the Allahu anhu that even his death but his very last words was to do it to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Oh Allah let me die as a Muslim, the very last words he made to Allah subhanho wa Taala were Oh Allah, let me die as a Muslim. You see the example of Baba Baba, the Allahu anhu and how important it was for him to always stay in the bath pass the guidance, because in this world, it protects you from humiliation and disgrace, and it is a source of happiness and tranquility. And in the hereafter. This guidance is the reason for you
entering paradise. This guidance is the reason for you entering paradise. So this is just a small introduction into this dwad that we make in seventh in our souls 17 times a day dinner Serato mistook him so that Allah subhanho wa Taala always guides us. So now let us take a look at a couple of things in this verse. The very first thing we realized in this verse is that this is the first time in the verse that we are now supplicating to Allah subhanho wa Taala the first three verses, it's factual information for us. The second and the fourth verse, we're stating something to Allah subhana wa tada we're telling Allah subhanaw taala that you are alone we worship and You alone we
seek help from but now when we get to a dinner Serato Mr. Cream, you notice that this is the first time we're supplicating to Allah subhanho wa Taala so will we learn from this is the etiquettes of supplicating to Allah subhana wa tada the etiquettes of making dua to Allah subhana wa tada the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is the narrative of Buddhahood he says that the Messenger of Allah saw them hurting man supplicating in prayer, he did not glorify Allah, nor did he invoke blessings on the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he has made dua and haste. He then called him and said to him, or to those around him, if any of you supplicates he
should commence by glorifying his Lord and praising him, he should then invoke Peace and blessings on the Prophet. and thereafter he should supplicate to Allah for anything that he wishes. So this is what you learn from this suit over here, that at the beginning, you start off by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is from the etiquettes of making dua, that you always start off by praising Allah subhanaw taala and then asking, what you want to ask for. A second thing you learn from this verse over here is that the command is dinner, it is in the imperative form. What does this mean? That when you look at the Arabic language, every verb will take one of three forms, it
will either take the past, it will take the president or it will take the imperative. What does this mean? So for example, you take the verb to go. So the past tense of the verb to go just look at
the past tense of the verb to go is the Hubba. And this is the past tense. So he went would be the hub, then the present tense is yes, Habu. So he is currently going and then the imperative is a command is hub.
So, he you command the person go and that person will go thereafter. Similarly, in this verse, what you see is the imperative that we are saying to Allah subhanaw taala, a dinner, dinner mean guide us is not pressed is not present, but is the imperative it is a command. Now, you will notice that in the Arabic language, the command has two forms. So the command when it comes from a higher authority, it means it is something that needs to be done. So, when you when a parent tells you to take out the garbage, it means you have to take out the garbage when Allah tells us to pray, it means we have to pray because it's coming from a higher authority. But now what if it's coming from
the lower level? What if it What if it's coming from the lower authority? What is coming? What if it's coming from those who are subjugated those who are the quote unquote servants or those who are in servitude, then what we understand from the imperative over here is the need of desperation that you the only time someone who is in a lower authority will command someone who is in a higher authority when it's absolute desperation. And this is what the sutra is showing us. That it is such an absolute state of desperation that we are in need of guidance. That is why we use the imperative towards Allah subhanho wa Taala even though the regular case scenario is that you would not use the
imperative towards a higher authority, but it is used over here because it is an absolute state of desperation to seek guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now continuing with the etiquettes of da epner claim, Rahim Allah, he mentioned this verse in that that would lower the sickness in the query book that he has. And he talks about the etiquettes of doula and I want to expand on that a little bit, because this is what this verse is there to show us. So have no claim Rahim Allah. He goes on to say, when the servant combines in his supplications presence of the heart, and it being attentive, and devoting itself solely to Allah, sincerely asking him for the desired matcher. Doing
so at one of the six times when the supplication is more likely to likely to be answered, and these being the last third of the night, at the time of the run between the US and India comma at the end of the prescribed prayers. From the time the Imam ascends the pulpit to the time the prayer is finished on the day of Juma and the last hour, the last hour after the prayer of ourselves on the day of Juma. Along this the servant appends fear and reverence in his heart, besieging his Lord in a state of humility, and submissiveness. He faces the Qibla and is in a state of purity. He raises his hands to Allah and begins by praising and extolling him, then he invokes Peace and blessings upon
the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he proceeds mentioning his need by seeking forgiveness from Allah. And then he earnestly and sincerely makes his request as one who is needy and impoverished, impoverished supplicating. To him out of hope and fear. He seeks the means of getting close to him by mentioning his names and attributes, and making the religion sincerely for him alone, before making a supplication he gives in charity. If all this is done, then the supplication will never be rejected, especially if the servant employs the supplications that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam informed us would be accepted, or if its application
included, the Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala or if its application included the Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us look at the etiquettes of Diablo Coimbra Mahalo to Allah mentions. So the first thing he mentioned, is the attentiveness of the heart, that when you're making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the heart needs to be attentive, you'll notice that this is where a lot of us go wrong, that Salah will finish we'll raise our hands, we'll make dua, but our hearts really aren't into it. We're thinking about matters of the dunya we're thinking about other problems that we have, we're thinking about what we're going to be doing, but the heart is not
attentive in making blood to Allah subhana wa Tada. So that is the first thing the heart needs to be attentive. Number two, when you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, you should try to seek the times where dwis actually accepted try to seek the times where the eyes actually accepted. And if no claim Rahim Allah, he mentioned six times over here, he mentioned six times over here, the first of them is in the last third of the night. The first of them is the last third of the night. The second of them is after the other after the other than that when you make do out right after the event, you repeat as the margin says, and then you make dua, it is a time when the do is answered. Number
three, between the event and the comma between the line and the comma. Number four, at the end of prescribed prayers. So you've just prayed a fourth salah and before you said Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah at that time you make the dua, not after the Sadam but before the Salah. Then from the time the moment says the puppet to the time when the Salah finishes
So this means that between the two quotables that the man makes on the day of Juma is a time when da is answered, if the man leaves a break between finishing the kotoba and starting the Salah, that is a time when da is answered as well. Then the last time he mentioned is the last hour on the day of Friday. So the scholars deferred that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that on the day of Friday is a time that if you were to make why during that time, Allah subhanaw taala would answer that supplication, the vast majority of scholars of Hadith, they went to the opinion that this was just the last hour before slaughter mclubbe so on the day of Friday before
salata, mothered make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is a time when supplications are answered. Can you guys think of any other times when dwis are answered? Any other times go ahead
before breaking your fast so while a person is fasting, his dwis answered directly related to that is that when the person is breaking his fast, then do is answered at that time as well.
While Institute Good point, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that the closest a slave is to his Lord is when he is making such stuff. So that is a good time to make law. But it's not necessarily a time where supplications are guaranteed to be accepted. But that was a good point. Go ahead while traveling so the two of them suffered is Mr. Job excellent.
During rain, the prophets of Allah it was seldom used to make the Hydra it is a blessing time to do so. A lot of alum of his drama stir job but it's definitely a blessing time to do so. Can you think of something else?
While Muslim accent so the drive the person who's being oppressed, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us that there's no barrier between the one who is oppressed, and his daughter to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are other times when dwis are accepted. You want to say another one.
When you wake up? Yeah, we mentioned the last third of the night already. That was the very first one you mentioned the last third of the night. Go ahead. Last one.
When you're visiting someone sick, no, there's no door and that's answered at that time. It's a very virtuous deeds to do, it's a very good deed to do. But there's no particular drive that's answered at that time. But what you can do is, after you're done visiting the sick and it's sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho, wa Taala, you can make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that, Oh, well, I did this good deed for your sake. So please accept my law. This is a form of tawassul which is permissible, which we'll get to a bit later on. So the second thing you mentioned is that you make dua during the accepted times periods of time. The third thing he mentions is that you face the
Qibla when making dua, so you face the Qibla. When making dua number four, he mentioned that you be in a state of purity. He mentioned you be in a state of purity, so you are in a state of Voodoo while making blood to Allah subhanho wa Taala number five, that you raise your hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala you raise your hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now genuinely speaking, when the issue of raising the hands comes, you'll see that there is a lot of interpretations in terms of how should one raise their hands, should they do so like this? Should they do so like this? How should they do it? From the authentic narrations of the prophets of Allah Anu cinnamon is narrated, that
when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make do average the score, he would raise his hands up so high that you could see the whiteness of his armpits you could see the whiteness of his armpits. So the scholars derived from this, that the greater the you know, level of desperation that you showed towards Allah, the better it is, so it's not really significant to raise your hands high or low. But what is important is that you're showing a level of desperation and your need towards Allah subhanho wa Taala then the next thing is that you praise Allah subhanho wa Tada. You praise Allah subhana wa Tada. This is number six if I'm not mistaken, right? Well, those of you
keeping notes which number are we at your last Where are we? You aren't we're at number six. So number six, is that you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala number seven is that you send Salaam Salaam upon the Messenger of Allah that you send salah and Salaam upon the Messenger of Allah. And then the last thing that it no claim Rahim Allah He mentioned is that you make tawassul with Allah subhana wa tada you make tawassul with Allah subhana wa Tada. Now this concept of tawassul Allah subhanho wa Taala he combines this with this is sort of my father, he commands his work to LA he was either that seek a means of closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala and tawassul which is legislated, is in four
types torsen which is legislated, is in four types. Number one that you ask Allah subhana wa Taala by his names and attributes, Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us and sorted out off when they let him smell fresh. Now for those who will be here, that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has the Beautiful Names, so call him by them. So how
Is this workload we've mentioned in the past before a person who's asking for risk, he uses the name or was the person who was asking for forgiveness. He calls upon a job and a love affair and a love for that. That is how you use the names of Allah subhanaw taala in making dua. The second form of tawassul that is permissible is by using your good deeds by using your good deeds. cmll Bukhari Rahim Allah, he mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam were three men were stuck in the cave. And they said that we will not get out of this cave up and until we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, by the good deeds we have done by the good deeds that we have done. So the first
person he made was to Allah subhanho wa Taala Oh Allah, I did not feed my family before I fed my parents. And one day I went out and I was delayed in 20, returning back, and my parents had gone to sleep, and I had my children crying at my feet. But I waited until my parents awoke, and then I fed them first. And then I fed my children, if I did this for your sake and your sake alone, then alleviated this trial from us. So the rock moved a little bit but they still weren't able to escape. The second man. He says that, Oh Allah. There was a cousin of mine, who was the most beloved of people he says, Go ahead, we'll have a shot. Do you have beracha Nisa that I used to love her the
most, it is physically possible for a man to love a woman. And one time she came in a state of desperation, she needed money. So I said to her, I will give you this money, if you seclude yourself with me. And then this woman, she reminded this man, that if you want to do this, do this properly, meaning get married to me. So she said, Fear Allah without the photo, Hatim Allah be happy, that fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and do this properly. So I left the money with her and I ran away our life, I did this out of fear of you, and sincerely for your sake, then help us in this predicament. The Rock moved a little bit, but they still weren't able to escape. And the third and last one, and
this is actually my favorite one. Because it's, you know, you can imagine this scenario, that the third man, he says that, Oh Allah, one day, I had hired a group of workers. And I'd paid them all of them their wages, except for one man, he disappeared. So I took this man's wages, and I invested it. And then after many months, this man comes back. And he says, Give me my deal, right? So I said to him, everything that you see, and you can imagine, there's like a valley of sheep, a valley of cameras, you know, orchards of trees, with fruits and dates, and all that stuff. He says, everything that you see, a belongs to you. And this worker, he tells the man that don't make fun of me, Look, I
know I'm poor. I know I miss skin. But don't make fun of me. And the man says, I'm not making fun of you genuinely, all of this belongs to you. So then the man who's saying this, he says, he took everything, he took everything. And he didn't leave a single sheep behind. Meaning that you would have thought this one I've done so much good for you, at least you'd leave once you behind for me, he didn't even do that. So he said, Oh Allah, if I did this, for your sake and your sake alone, help us in our predicament. And they were then able to escape from the cave. So this shows us the permissibility of making tawassul through your righteous deeds, and that is why our predecessors
they encouraged us that you know, you're going to be in a state of predicament, you know, Allah is going to test you. So before that test comes, incur your good deeds, you that you do sincerely that no one else knows about. So that when that trial and tribulation comes, you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala, through your good deeds, and then he helps you out in that situation. So it is very important that in times of prosperity, in terms of ease in terms of goodness, you do good deeds sincerely for the sake of Allah, so that when the difficult times come, you can make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala through those deeds. The third type of torture that is permissible is the Diwan of
the righteous person, the dawn of the righteous person. And so hey, Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he commanded Amara de la Juan, he said that when you go for Hajj, you will see a man who is extremely righteous, he was known for his righteousness towards his mother actually obedience to His mother. And that is why allow us to answer his device. So the process and total mode when you see this man asked him to make dua for you, and do ask for your forgiveness. And in order to did so, and this man was always so corny. Rahim Allah, he was a man who lived during the time of the companions, but he never actually met the prophets of Allah, Allah himself. So he
doesn't have the honor of being called the companion, even though he lives during their time, even though he lives during their time. And for those of you who just want a technical term, and the science of Hadith, this individual is known as a Muharram. He is known as macadam, someone who lives during the time of the prophet SAW them, but never actually got to see the prophets are set up. So he doesn't have the status or honor of a companion, even though we lived during their time. And that was always so corny. Likewise, the example of anibus that Amara de la Hondo in that year that rain didn't come down here.
went to anibus. And he told us, he said, we used to make dough through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was alive, but now that he has passed away, we're asking you to make dua for Scott for rain than the Ibis may do and rain came down and rain came down. So this shows us that you should ask a righteous person to make dua for you. You'll notice that there's a misconception in our community, that every time you see someone, just a general person, you will say make dua for me. Now, you know, particularly in the Indian sub India is
what's the word um, of course, the subcontinent, culture and tradition, that when you leave a gathering, you tell the people do army or darkness, that you know, numbers in your prayers, this is something that isn't Islamic, it's not Islamic, but rather, it is only the righteous person, someone that you know them to be righteous, that you should ask them to make blood for you. So you shouldn't, you know, wasted that rather, it is better that you ask Allah subhanaw taala yourself, rather than giving, telling every individual to make dua for you, that is the third type. And then the fourth type of tawassul that is permissible is by mentioning one's weakness by mentioning once a
weakness. So you'll notice that Dr. Zakaria, the Dr. Zakaria that he complains to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Oh Allah, I have become old an age and I have become feeble, one morality. And my wife has become you know, she's unable to bear children, she's unable to bear children. And through mentioning this, they may do harm to Allah subhanaw taala to grant them a child, and Allah grant them a child and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually tells us that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves to see the broken state in his slave when he's making dua to him. So this shows how perfect and complete and self sufficient Allah subhanho wa Taala is, and how weak and
desperate and in need the slave is of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are the four types of tawassul that are permissible in making dua. And that is the last thing that is not claimed by him Allah mentions from the etiquettes of making dua from the etiquettes of making dua.
Now, in this verse, we make the da da da serratos, the Pim hedaya in the Arabic language and in Islam, he Daya is of two types. There are two types of guidance. So the guidance that is considered the first types is the guidance where you just indicate something. So for example, someone asks you, can you tell me where you know, Deerfoot trail is. So you tell them make a right make a left, and it'll be a Deerfoot trail. This is a form of guidance. And this is something that each and every individual can do. Each and every individual can do this, you know, as long as you have that information, as long as you have that knowledge, you're able to give someone direction and this
direction is not binding binding is not binding, this person can either choose to accept it or they can choose to reject it or they can choose to reject it. The second type of guidance is a guidance that is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning that Allah subhana wa tada He guides the heart of the individual towards that which is best for him. He guides the heart of the individual towards that which is best for him. And when we are making glad to Allah subhanho wa Taala Dino serratos de creme, it is the second type of Hidayat The second type of guidance that we are actually asking for. And you'll notice that Allah subhanaw taala, he
actually acknowledges his acknowledges both were the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so in Burnsville in one verse, He tells the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the calidad de la serata. Mr. Kim, this is sort of Surah Surah number 42, verse 52, he says that all you messenger of Allah, indeed you are a guide to the straight path. Indeed you are a guide to the street path. And this is referring to the first type of guidance, this is referring to the first type of guidance, then in the example of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those of us who choose to follow it, then they will be following the best of examples, there will be
following the right path. And then you'll notice that in the second type, a type of guidance that is specific from Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he tells him in Nicoletta demon, I will I can the La Jolla demon Yeshua, that he tells the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you are messenger of Allah, do not guide those whom you love, but rather it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who guides whom He pleases? So this shows us that there is a type of guidance that is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala that is purely from Allah subhana wa tada and that is in sort of Casa surah, number 28 verse 56, surah
number 28 verse 56.
Now generally speaking, the scholars of Tafseer these are the two types of guidance that they always mentioned. If no claim Rahim Allah, he actually mentioned a third type of guidance. He has
He mentions a third type of guidance. And he says that if you were to look at the wordings of this ayah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he doesn't stop as at saying that Oh Allah guide us, but rather Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us to say he did not say errata Mr. Hakim, that Guide us to the straight path and that on the Day of Judgment, there is a bridge that we will be crossing that is a Surat as well. There is a bridge that we will be crossing that is called a Surat as well. So, I want to share with you what I have not claimed Rahim Allah states, he goes on to say, and that is guidance on the Day of Judgment along the path to paradise, this being the bridge leading to it. So the one who is
guided in this life to the straight path will be guided to the straight path in the hereafter that leads to his paradise. His firmness on the path that day will be dependent on how firmly he tried the straight path in this life. So I have no claim Rahim Allah He mentioned that the third type of guidance is that the more you seek out guidance in this world, then the more Allah subhanaw taala will guide you in the hereafter. So now this Surat that I'm not claimed by him Allah is talking about I want you to imagine this.
This is a bridge that Allah subhanaw taala created. And this bridge, it is as thin as an eyelash, it is as thin as an eyelash. If you pull just one hair out, you will see how thin it actually is. In fact, most of you probably cannot even see it from where you're sitting right now. But there's actually a hair follicle in my hand. That is how thin that bridge is. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us it is as short as a sword. So think about the sharpest knife that you have in your house that if you did it slightly graze it, it would cut your hand that is the state of the Surat. Then to add on top of that, there is no light whatsoever it is absolute pitch
dark. And then to make matters even worse. The fourth thing is that underneath you are the valleys of the hellfire. Underneath You are the valleys of the Hellfire yarmulke Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that there are a group of people that will run across this setup, there will be a group of people that will jog a group field that will walk a group of people that will crawl across the silhouette. And this will be dependent on how much they stuck to guidance in this life, how much they stuck to guidance in this life. So those people who claimed to guidance, they always sought guidance and all of their affairs, they will hasting Lee cross this
bridge, but those people who took it in just took it in in the waste, then these people they will either struggle to get across or they may even you know fall into the Hellfire May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all. The last thing I mentioned about the Surat is that Allah subhanho wa Taala He will guide he will grant a light to the believers. Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us in sort of rain, that the believers on the Day of Judgment, they will make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala they will say robina panna, they're all complete and perfect our light for us. The scholars interpreted this verse, that the light that Allah subhana wa Taala will guide and grant at that time is the
light of a Salah. And this is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says in another Hadith, or Salah to note that the Salah is a light that light is referring to is that the people who stuck to their Salah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, he will grant them a light and the strength of that light will purely be based upon how diligent and individual was with their Salah. So if they prayed on time, if they played art with Russia, if they made sure the you know, they did it properly according to the sooner the passes to them, the more likely they will have and that is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he commanded us as
well. He said, complete the deficiencies in your Salah, with your son and Noah for the prayers, meaning that obviously from time to time, you will be distracted, you will not be able to focus this is normal, everyone is tested by this. So he said make up those deficiencies in your Salah by praying the son and Noah for the prayers that Allah subhanaw taala May we compensate you for those deficiencies that you had and thus that light may be even more perfected on the day of judgment that the light may be even more perfected on the Day of Judgment.
Another linguistic point I want to mention is that in this verse we say in a Serato Mr. Kim, that if you were to look at it if dinner is guide us and then you have a Surat which is the the path almost stuck in the straight path. But you'll never see the, I guess the conjunction over here you don't see in the Arabic language Guide us to the straight path or guidance upon the street path. So you don't actually say Dena, ala, axolotl, Mr. Kim, or you don't say Dina either
A Serato Mr. Kane, or Dana Lee a Serato. Mr. Pin, that conjunction that prefix is missing. And a blockchain Rahim Allah, He teaches us the the reason why this is actually happening is that how the person said, Guide us to the straight path? And what I've said, and what would have implied guidance to that path. And that is our objective guide is to that path, because it is an objective Illa means that you're going towards something. So that is your objective, the straight path is your objective. And had you said, then a Li, a Serato, Mr. Kim, and would have implied that you guide us to that path. But it is optional for us if we're going to follow that path or not. And the reason why Allah
subhanho wa Taala left it out with and without any prefix whatsoever is to show us is that not only is this an objective, but we also want to be, you know, granted that tofik to follow this path. So the reason why there's no prefix mentioned before the straight path is because we're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala not only should you guide us to the straight path, but also grant us the tofik to follow it as well. Grant is the tofik to follow it as well. And this is a linguistic benefit that you find that Bibi lights out for when you study you know the Arabic language you will come to appreciate to be the light to Allah. Now, this concept of the Serato Mr. Hakim, what exactly is the
Serato? Mr. Kim, if you look into the books of Tafseer, you will see that amongst the setup amongst the predecessors, there were seven different opinions in terms of what the setup was. The claim, actually is seven different opinions. The first of them is stated by Alibaba tonic, and Abdullah bin Massoud and they said the straight path is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. the straight path is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second opinion is that of Abdullah bin abass, it is attributed delivered Massoud as well as the half and others and they said that the straight path is Islam, the straight path is Islam. The third opinion is that the Serato zakim is the religion of
Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala which no other religion will be accepted. Number four, it is the Prophet and the two calibers. It is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the first two conifers aboubaker and Omer. This was the opinion one of the students have been a boss by the name of Alia and this was the opinion of when I will hassanal basally Rahim Allah number five, it is the truth. So when you're saying academic Salatu Misaki you say Allah guide us to the truth. This was the opinion of Mujahid who was a student of avian abass number six, the path to paradise that Allah guided grant guidance to the path of paradise. This was
the opinion of sidle joybird and the seventh and last opinion, it is the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this was said by one of the early scholars of Hadith by the name of bhaker bin Abdullah Al Merci de Baca Abdullah masani. He said it is the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these are the seven I guess ways they interpreted the Serato Mr. Hakim, they only define the salado Mr. Fame. They said it included these seven things that included these seven things. It is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Islam, it is the religion that Allah subhanaw taala will accept, it is the Prophet and the to qualify. It is the truth. It is the path to
paradise, and it is the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. It is the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. I want to mention two last things with the lights Allah and that is what ignore Kareem Rahim Allah. He mentioned about the Salaam stuck in Abner claimed Rahim Allah He talks about a salado Muslim and he goes on to say, we will expand will expound upon the straight path in a succinct manner for the people have explained it in various ways, all of them revolving around one essential fact. the straight path is the path of Allah, which he has put in place to lead mankind to him. There is no path to him, other than this one which he appointed upon
the tongues of the messengers, it is to single him out for worship, and to single out his messengers alone for obedience. Therefore, none should commit shirk in his worship, just as none should commit shift and following of His Messenger, one should purify his self hate, and purify his following of the messenger. This is the full import of the justification, that none has the right to be worshipped and Allah except Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger of Allah. All of the various explanations given to the straight path, fall under these two principles. You must love Him with all your heart, you must try to please Him to the utmost of your ability. There should not be any area
of your heart, except that it is overflowing with love for him, and you should have no desire except to please Him. The first point is realized through
actualising none has the right to be worshipped except Allah. And the second point is realized to the actualization of Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is guidance and the religion of truth. And this is knowing the truth and acting upon it. This is in turn, is knowing that is knowing what He sent His messenger with, and living by it. All definitions revolve around this essential Khan's concept. So helping Abdullah said, stick to the narrations and the sooner cry fear that soon will come a time that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the importance of following him and everything is mentioned, the people would send you the
person who says this, cause others to flee from him, and disassociated themselves from him, humiliate him and disgrace him. So I have no claim Rahim Allah He summarizes the Serato must have came with two concepts. The two concepts he mentions is purifying your a birder purely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the second concept is following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, meaning that you will not unrestrictedly obey any of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, except for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is further seen in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married in a telemovie, where
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has set forth the following as a parable, there is a road that leads to the destination. On either side of this road is a wall in which there are open doors, which could be with curtains hanging on them from the remote of the road or voice calls, proceed to the straight path and do not turn the side. Whenever someone intends to lift the curtain from the door and other voice calls from above. Beware, do not lift the curtain, otherwise you will be lowered inside. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained the parable by saying that this is the straight path is Islam. The walls are the limits imposed by
Allah subhanho wa Taala. The open doors are things that Allah has prohibited. The voice which calls from the end of the road is the Quran. And the voice which calls from above is alleged monitor in the hearts of every believer and the heart of every believer. So understand this parable Exactly. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that the Serato must have came, it is a straight path and the straight path, it has branches leading off towards it. And these branches, they're closed off by walls, meaning that you can't surpass them, there's a wall that's blocking it off. But there is a curtain inside of these walls. There's a curtain inside of these walls. So the
individual who deviates from the straight path and he goes towards these walls, he will lift up this curtain and he will be alert, he will be alert. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that there's two voices that call out whenever someone intends to lift a curtain from the door and other voice calls out from above, beware, do not live this curtain, otherwise you will be lowered inside. And then there's another voice that says do not deviate from the straight path. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that these two voices are the natural, you know pure heart, that the pure heart will tell you what is good for you, and will tell you what
is bad for you. So whenever your heart feels a state of discomfort, this is your hearts telling you that you're doing something wrong, and you shouldn't be doing it. And then the second voice is the voice of the Quran. The Quran tells us what is good for us and what is bad for us. Then those walls that Allah subhanaw taala has set up. Those are the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that as long as you're staying within those walls, you're in within the realms of permissibility. But the second you transgress those walls, then you use accom yourself to desires which Allah subhana wa Taala has prohibited. So stay with inside those boundaries stay with inside those
boundaries. And one last point I mentioned over here is that from the above verse, we also learned that the straight path is one path and not many, indeed anything that deviates from it is to be regarded as misguidance and that is why the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam is told is certain Anam Allah subhanaw taala tells the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam and certainly Anam surah number six, verse 153. And barely This is my straight path. So follow it and do not follow the other paths, for they will separate you from this path. This has been ordained for you that you may become pious that Allah con that the Quran. So here we learn that the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala is
only one path. It is not multiple paths. There are multiple paths towards doing good deeds, but in terms of those deeds being accepted, then there's only one path that leads to Allah subhanaw taala and that is what Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala commanders with and that is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was upon. And that is why in another narration, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drew that
straight line. He said that this is the Serato Mr. Kim, this is the straight path. So the companions asked him Jada sola, who is the straight path or who are the people of the streets path, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam told them, man and he alone was happy, that that which I am upon, and that which my companions are upon. So when you're looking for the straight path, then always look for what would the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do in this situation? What would his companions are the Allahu anhu, agreed to at this point, and that will be the straight path, that will be the straight path.
The last thing I'll mention over here to conclude with the lights Allah is that this verse goes on to say this is actually the next verse, and then a salata Hakim and then continues serata nadina. And I'm telling him The path of those whom you have favored the path of those whom your favorite. So we noticed over here that the straight path is also the path of those whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has favored. So now we want to figure out who are the people that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually has favored? Who are the people that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually has favored. And the answer to this is found in Surah Nisa, verse 69 Surah Nisa, verse 69. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in this
verse, one minute Allah Allah sola who for Allah, He commanded Dena Anam Allahu alayhi, then bien was the decreed was Shahada. It was solid hain hacer una una karateka. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this verse, that whoever obeys the Messenger of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala then he will be in the company of the following four categories of people the following four categories of people that he commanded in annum Allahu Allah, him in an OBE in the prophets was said directly in the sincerely truthful once the sincerely truthful once was Shahada, the martyrs was solid him and the righteous and the righteous. So the prophets these are known, these are This includes the prophets
and the messengers. This includes the Nabhi and then a B and our soul. Now what is the difference between the B and also the Nabhi is anyone that was given revelation by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The first of them was Adam alayhis salam, the first of them was adamantly Salah, then there are soon as anyone who is given revelation by Allah subhanho wa Taala, but his people turned against him, his people turned against him. So the first nubby was Adam, and the first rule of Sol was no Holly Salah the first rule was no Holly salah and these are the words of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so he will be in the company of all of the prophets, and all of the messengers.
Then I said the thing I said, deikun these are the people who are hasty in affirming the truth, that anytime the truth comes to them, they're hasty in affirming it. From that which is authentically narrated, we know that this title was given to two individuals, we know that this title was given to two individuals. And if you can tell me who those two individuals are, I'll actually give you my set of notes. I have a separate set of notes. I'll give this to you in Sharla, but you need to give me both of them. I don't want just one. I need both of them be the lights Allah.
Abu Bakr, Siddiq la de la Han and who is the second
Don't shout out I need both of them at the same time. Go ahead.
I'll give you a hint. The second individual is not a Sahabi. The second individual is not a savvy.
Incorrect. Just to tell you why. Obviously, the process of them would be an obvious answer. But we don't give him the title of Siddiq because he has a higher level of being an NBA not as soon so while he got correct, he wasn't given that title because he was in the BNR suit. Go ahead.
In Christ said he wasn't so happy he was in the second person was not so happy. Go ahead.
accent that is correct. So you can take this later on in Sharla. So, I'll I'll tell you the answer. The first of them is Miriam, Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran about Miriam will carry on kind of almost a diva that indeed her his mother, the mother of a Saudi Salaam was a Siddiqa. Someone who sincerely affirm the truth. Then the second time, this title is
Given 21 was Abu Bakar the Allahu anhu. Particularly when the incident of a Salah well Mirage happened. They said that you know what your friend has said now, he said that he traveled to Jerusalem in one night. Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. He said to them, that if he said it, then it must be true. If he said it, then it must be true. And this one he was given the title of a study. So in our history, these are the two people that we know of, that will give him the title of acidic and almost supine what Allah knows best. So that is the second category of people whom Allah has favored. Then the third category of people is the Shahada. The third category of people is Shahada.
Now, when we talk about Shahada when we talk about martyrs in Islam, this has a general meaning and it has a specific meaning. The specific meaning is that someone who died in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the battlefield, someone who died in the way of Allah subhanaw taala on the battlefield, and this is the highest level of Shahada. This is the highest level of Shahada.
Yeah, this is the highest level of Shahada. Then the general concept of Shahada or the general meaning of the shade is anyone who died struggling, anyone who died struggling, so the Messenger of Allah says seven says that whoever dies while drowning is a Shaheed someone who dies of stomach cancer. Colon cancer, or intestinal cancer is a Shaheed someone who dies while defending his house, or his family is a Shaheed. And you'll notice that other people they're mentioned as Shahada. So anyone who is through dies in the state of struggling is considered a Shaheed. So this kind of compresses all of those people, this encompasses all of those people. And then the last category is
a solid him, the general righteous people. And these are people who did extra amounts of ibadah extra amounts of ibadah. Above that was regular above that was regular. One last thing I'll mention about this, is that the scores of the year they asked the question, so where would the scholars of Islam fall into this? Where would the scholars of Islam fall into this? Would they follow under the MBR? And also, because they were the inheritors of the prophets? Would they follow under the Cydia code? Because they're the first ones to affirm the truth and teach it to the people? Would they follow under the martyrs? Because their whole life is a struggle to learn and to teach? Or would
they fall fall under the the last one, which is, you know, they did excessively by their extra ibadah? And the answer to this question, Allah Subhana, Allah knows best is that the scholar of Islam, the student of knowledge, he would fall into all four categories. And that is why the student of knowledge and the scholar, he has the best job because he has the opportunity to fall under all four of these categories. Now, the last last thing I mentioned, I know he's saying this a lot, but I just keep remembering different things.
Sheikh Mohammed, the minister and pretty, he's a scholar that passed away to him a whole lot. He was of the same generation of Jacob nobles. And she called Vanya Rahim Allah, maybe even a bit more senior to them. He's written a book of Tafseer, called Anwar obeah. And the point of this book of tafsir, is to explain the Koran with the Koran, so uses the Quran to explain the Quran. So we'll mention a verse Then he'll bring other verses to explain this verse. Now when it comes to this particular verse, when it comes to this particular verse, he mentioned something very interesting I've mentioned in some of my lectures before, but he uses this verse to prove the truthfulness of
the hilife of Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Akbar. He uses this to prove the truthfulness of the philosophy of Abu Bakar adeola one, meaning that through this verse and then a Serato, Mr. Kim serata, Latina nantahala him, he uses this verse to prove that Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu was most deserving to become Khalifa. How did he do this? The way he does, this was exactly what I just explained to you that Allah subhanho wa Taala, he shows us the rank of people in terms of whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has favored, starting off with the prophets, then the seed, the corn, then the Shahada, and the solid one, these are the four categories. So after the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi
wasallam, who is most deserving to become their leader, it is the next person or the group of categories of people, either this to decode either the Shahada or the solid Han. Now the Shahada obviously cannot be an ex leader because he's already passed away. So leaves you with the see the code under the hood. So the he said that when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in order he mentions this order, because there's a virtue over the previous thing of the previous thing over the lecture. So Allah subhana wa tada has preferred and given virtue to the code over the solid one, and therefore the city code should be given precedence or preference. And that is why after when the
father son and passed away, this I was a proof that Abu Bakr radiallahu was most deserving to be Khalifa because Allah subhanaw taala had preferred people in this category, or had preserved preferred people in these rankings, the prophets and messengers, then the see the code, and then the Shahada, and then the solid one you guys are just
In the last point, everyone understood it and from the so we'll conclude with that in sha Allah. Allahu wa Salaam wa barakaatuh Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, and we will take five questions be anila hits either five questions.
right. All right.
So how do you reconcile the two howdy accent? So the brothers question was that we mentioned nine times where the dwis are answered, but another Hadith of the prophets of Salaam, he says that all of our daughters are answered in one of three ways all of our boys are answered in one of three ways. Either Allah subhanaw taala gives us what we want when we want, or Allah subhanho wa Taala delays it for a time when it is better for us. Or number three, that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He doesn't give us what he what we want, but he averts an equal amount of evil from our lives. He averts an equal amount of evil from our lives.
This Hadith is referring to when Allah subhanho wa Taala actually accept the door. The first Hadith in terms of timings or the timings that, you know, if you fall under that time, then you are fulfilled one of the conditions of being accepted. So this is when you get accepted, and this is how to get it accepted. That's the difference. So not every White is going to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is why you will notice that the person who repents when the sun, you know is rising from the west, Allah subhanaw taala won't accept it at that time, the person who repents when Allah subhanaw taala is taking their soul away. Allah Spano does not going to accept it at that
time. So person has to fulfill all of the conditions first, and then the device will be accepted. I can't remember which Hallock I did this in. But we took that famous quote of Abraham Abraham Rahim Allah where we discussed it, I didn't do it here in Calgary, I'm confused. I did this in Montreal, this quarter behind me nighttime inshallah we'll share it in another halaqa where you mentioned eight things where he says you accepted the Quran, but you don't follow it. You take the Messenger of Allah says Allah but you don't follow it. You talk about death, but you don't fear it. And you mentioned these eight conditions. So after all of these things, how do you accept Allah subhana wa
Tada. Or sorry? How do you expect Allah subhanaw taala to answer to us. Another Hadith the Prophet sedums mentions the man who HRM the man who will work hard on the man whose earnings work hard on the man who spendings work hard on the Messenger of Allah says Adam said, then how will Allah Spano tala answer the door of this individual, so you have to meet all of the conditions first, before the door can actually be accepted. So if you meet all of the conditions, then you do our bidding, and is guaranteed to be accepted in one of those three ways. And that's how you reconcile the two Hadith. I love that question. Very good question. Question number two.
Next question. Go ahead.
At the end,
make law firm. Yes.
So the brother is saying that in the Indian subcontinent culture, when they apart from their gatherings, they'll tell the people please remember me in your doors. And the answer to this is that this is something that is discouraged to do, it should not be done. Because there had there been any goodness in this. When the companions or the Allahu Adam would have parted in their gatherings, they would have told Abu Bakar remember me to do as they would have told me remember me in your doors, Now, obviously as compared to a broken arm or nothing. So if the company didn't say to the likes of Abu Bakar Ahmad, then who are the people to say to the likes of us? So generally speaking, this
concept of asking other people to make law for you, they should only be said to the people that are truly righteous mean that these are the people that are constantly coming to the mustard. The people that abide by the laws of nanobots, Allah, the people that stay away from Riba and Xena, you know, their hearts are attached to the machete they're always getting sadaqa they have amazing o'clock, you know, their colors of tawheed that they're always calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the type of people that you want to tell them you know, remember me and your daughters or make dua for this and then it will be accepted. In all other cases in scenarios, you are better off making
dua by yourself. Because Allah subhanaw taala he tells us in the Koran, why the Salah k by the unevenness, would you die with the die is that if my sleeve is about me, tell my slave that I am near. I answer all the duties of the one who supplicates to me. So that is what we should do that rather than asking everyone to make law for us. We should make it to ourselves, and that is the better thing to do. Good question. Aloha Thailand.
Question number three, go ahead.
You're gonna have to raise your voice, I can't hear you. Oh, come forward actually.
So the army do our individually First they may do I individually said, Oh Allah, I did this and this for your sake. So please help us out in this situation. So they may do it individually. And he told Allah subhanaw taala, about their deeds, and that is when Allah subhanaw taala helped them to escape from the cave.
They could have done that. But the point of this hadith is to teach us something, and that is that when you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, when you're in a severe situation, meaning that no one can help you except Allah, then in those times, you should ask Allah subhanaw taala by your righteous deeds, so you ask Allah subhanaw taala by the good deeds that you did to help you out in your darkest times in your darkest moments, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you out in those situations. Make sense? Excellent. Question number four, go ahead.
is given a scripture?
Allahu Tada, Adam? So the brothers question, is it true that the difference between the Prophet and the messenger is that the Prophet s or the messenger is given a scripture? And the answer to that is Allahu Allah, I don't know, that possibly could be one of the things. But I don't know
if that makes a difference, because in reality, what is the scripture? It is just writing down a revelation, right? So both prophets and messengers are giving revelation. So now you're seeing that the difference would be that one wrote the revelation down, and the other one didn't?
Write, but I'm seeing that you I mean, I understand the concept. So it just be writing it down. And I don't think that would be a major difference, you know, whether one group already done or didn't, I don't think it'd be a difference. Well, outside Adam, added to this point, you know, we were told of the major revelations that were sent down. So we know that the Quran is given to the processor them these aboard was given to though the total given to Moosa the Injeel, given to Isa, then we have the Sahaba of Abraham and Musa as well. These are the major, you know, scriptures that we refer to. But here, the Messenger of Allah system also tells us that the first sort of soul was no highly
solemn. And we there's no mention of any scripture that was actually given to know. So let's find out on those best, it's possible, but I don't know. Allahu taala Question number four, last question of the evening. Go ahead.
Is it true that the two hours that are mentioned in the Quran are going to be more accepted?
the acceptance of do is based upon the individual and not what he is actually saying. Right? It is more upon the individual than rather what he's actually saying. So what is more important as you look at the etiquettes of making do I rather than looking at what you are saying, but what I can, what I can say about your question is that the doors that are mentioned in the Quran, Allah mentioned them in the Quran, because there's something special about them, there's something special about them and that is why they should be said, so the dwis in the Quran are definitely more preferable than the ones that we will make for ourselves. But at the same time, there are certain
instances that will not be mentioned in the Quran. So for example, you know, your mother is extremely sick, you know, the Quran will not tell us what to make at that time. So you can make your own dog so if you're in a situation where you can use a Quranic dua or your own law, it is better to use the Quranic however, they're in situations where there is no Quranic law, then you can make up your own while at that time. Allahu taala. Good question. The last thing I guess I'll conclude with is that I wanted to mention this in the beginning but it slipped my mind. Then we were talking about guidance and how precious guidance was and how guidance is of blessing from aligned a favor from
Allah subhana wa Tada. If you look at police, you know a police was from the most righteous of the jinn. And that is why he was in the company of the melodica. If you look at a police, he knew how to address Allah subhanho wa Taala he said Robbie and vanilla yom in your bathroom, he knew how to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you look at the company of God, he believes he was in the company of the melodica and the company of Adam and his setup. Yet all of this was taken away from him, by him making one minute
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala put him in a situation where he had to make a choice, either to bow down to Adam, or to not bow down to Adam. And by choosing the path of misguidance, in just one situation, Allah subhana wa tada took guidance away altogether from a bliss. And if it can happen to someone that believes that it was in the company of the angels, and the company of the prophets, you know, view saw revelation saw the prophets, so everything that would happen, and even then revelation or guidance can be taken away from him, and shows you that we even us as human beings are more susceptible to losing guidance. So you have to make sure you hold on to the best of your
ability, that hold on to your guidance, that whenever you're given that choice, either to follow a path of guidance or to follow a path or misguidance. Remember the story of a beliefs that remember that through making that bad decision to making that bad choice, it is very possible, you could follow and go down that exact same line. And that is something you want to avoid mela protect us all. So keep that in mind. And that is why it is so important to keep making this da da salado Mr. King, that our law until the day we die, leading us to the straight path. And the lesson we learned from this as well is that the reason why we keep mentioning the 17 times a day is because this path
of guidance is not black and white. It's not that hey, I became Muslim. I'm guided No, it's not black and white. But rather guidance is a lifelong journey. Till the day you die. You will need to learn how to do things, how to speak to people how to go to the bathroom, how to eat, how to you know what are the things that you can do to benefit the dead? All of these things come from guidance. So when you ask a lay didn't set out to Mr. Clean, this is what you're asking for that Oh Allah keep guiding me to the best of my dunya and the best of my Acura and they'll accept it from all of us.
