Rahim in Alhamdulillah Hina hemudu Ernestina who want to start off when I was Avila HeMan Cerulean fusina woman sejati Molina, Maria de la Fernando de la woman, Lynn who follow her della watershed Allah, La la hora hula hula Sri cada wa shadow Ana Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa and he was talking he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira ama but my dear brothers and sisters as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:35--> 00:00:52

We've reached the verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Daniel Salatin stuck in that guidance to the straight path, oh, 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.

00:00:53--> 00:01:17

You know, of all the things we take 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. Up until you lost that guidance. And I want to share a couple of stories with you.

00:01:18--> 00:01:54

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 SubhanAllah. 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 our 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 he was my cousin. And naturally since they went to their house, so often, we developed almost like a sibling

00:01:54--> 00:02:27

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? 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 you always beat me and everything. She beat me in school, she had a better computer than me, got her. Her. She got a bicycle before me. Everything happened before me. Except that until when we went for our driver's license. And you know, literally on that day, I was like, I had enough. You know, I'm the gal like she can't get her

00:02:27--> 00:02:41

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, oh, Allah, please let her feel today. You know, don't let her pass. 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,

00:02:44--> 00:02:55

and, you know, that was the type of relationship we had. Obviously, I Peter, I got my driver's license before the thumbs up. But that's not the point. Just to exemplify our relationship even further, we will memorize the Koran together. And I remember,

00:02:56--> 00:03:30

you know, we were competing in either finishing juice, I'm not just about like, I can't tell which juice it was. But I finished first in that leg, literally by a day only. And the day we finished I'm like, so did you finish your night? And she's like, No, I didn't sound like Haha, sucker. You know, you suck. And that's like the competition 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 seats, 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 was

00:03:30--> 00:04:02

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 go home. And she's like, No, you have to pray right now before you delete like that. You can't delay the Salah whatsoever. And then I remember we got a bit older, you know, she wanted to wear hit 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 to attend to see that argued with her parents to words in the pub. And eventually she started wearing syllabub. Now, I eventually went to Medina and she went on

00:04:02--> 00:04:38

to continue her 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 speak 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

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

explodes on you, you know, just goes absolutely ballistic. I remember another example studying at Islamic University of Medina. This was a brother who was like four or five years senior to me. He graduated from the faculty of study at 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 speaking

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

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 in Al Qaeda. 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

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

seeing examples of this and it's like Subhanallah 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 do they go? What happens to them and that is when you truly realize that guidance is a blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada. 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 Abubakar rhodiola. One and the first two years of Abu Bakar when he

00:06:15--> 00:06:51

used to lead the Salah, particularly in silico Margaret, they noticed that in the third rock of of Maghreb aboubaker rhodiola, one who's taking an excessively long time that you know, usually the Imam, he's only going to read circle fattier, and that's where he'll stop bacara giovannucci knew he was silently reciting something else and he would start crying. So after several weeks had gone by the Sahaba asked in the other bucket What are you reciting? What is it that's making you cry in the third record, and you're only reading Sergio Fatiha and Nabokov? Allah Juana we mentioned at that time, then in this locker, I started reciting the verse from Surah, Allah marohn, Allah subhana wa

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

tada says, Robin Allah to say

00:06:54--> 00:07:33

that Oh Allah do not deviate our hearts after you have, you know, guided it. Look at the example of Abu Bakar of the Allahu anhu that even his deathbed his very last words was a dua 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. So you see the example of Abu Bakar, the Allahu anhu, and how important it was for him to always stay on the back path to 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

00:07:33--> 00:08:14

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. Then a Serato Mr. Kane, 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 realize in this verse is that this is the first time in the verse that we are now supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala the first three verses, this factual information for us, the second and the fourth verse, we're stating something to Allah subhana wa tada we're telling Allah subhanho wa Taala that you alone we worship and you're alone we seek help from but now when we get to a dinner Serato

00:08:14--> 00:08:53

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 advocates of making dua to Allah subhana wa tada the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was narrated in Abu Dhabi. He says that the Messenger of Allah Allah sent him or her the 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 do I in 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

00:08:53--> 00:09:32

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 subhanaw 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 a 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

00:09:32--> 00:09:41

present, 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

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

the past tense of the verb to go is the harbor. And this is the past tense. So he went would be the harbor, then the present tense is yes hubzu. So he is currently going and then the imperative is a command in hub. So

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

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, a dinner mean guide us, this is not press, it's 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 take out the garbage, it means you have to take out the garbage. When Allah tells us to pray, it means that we have to pray because it's coming from a higher authority. But now what if it's coming from

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

the lower level? What if it What if it's coming from the lower authority, what is coming, what 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 the higher authority when it's absolute desperation. And this is what the surah 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

00:11:14--> 00:11:56

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 advocates of da ignore claim, Rahim Allah, he mentions this verse in a da da, the sickness in the cure a book that he has, and he talks about the etiquettes of drawing. I want to expand on that a little bit, because this is what this verse is there to show us. Serve. 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 matter. Doing so at one of the six

00:11:56--> 00:12:41

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 event, between the abandoned the a comma at the end of the prescribed prayers. From the time the Imam ascends the puppet 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

00:12:41--> 00:13:23

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 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 wa sallam informed us would be accepted, or if its application included, the Greatest Name of

00:13:23--> 00:13:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala, or if its application included the Greatest Name of Allah subhanaw taala. So let us look at the etiquettes of derogative nakahara Allah mentions, so the first thing he mentions, 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

00:13:57--> 00:14:38

wa Tada. So that is the first thing the heart needs to be attentive. Number two, when you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala you should try to seek the times where dwis actually accepted try to seek the times where do is actually accepted? And if no claim Rahim Allah, he mentioned six times over here, he mentions 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 other, you repeat as the margin says, and then you make dua, it is a time when the dwis answered, number three, between the sedan and the comma between

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

the sedan and the comma. Number four, at the end of prescribed prayers. So you've just prayed a form of salah and before you said salaam 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 mama says the puppet to the time when the Salah finishes

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

So this means that between the two hotspots that the EMA makes on the day of Juma is the time when da is answered, if the Imam leaves a break between finishing the hotbar and starting the Salah, that is the time when da is answered as well. Then the last time he mentions 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 the time that if you were to make dua during that time, Allah subhanho wa 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 Serato mclubbe. So on the day of Friday before

00:15:40--> 00:15:51

salata, Levin, you 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

00:15:53--> 00:16:04

before breaking your fast so while a person is fasting is dwyers answered directly related to that is that when the person is breaking his fast, then do is answered at that time as well.

00:16:06--> 00:16:28

While in sujood, 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 data. So that is a good time to make law. But it's not necessarily a time where supplications are guaranteed to be accepted. That was a good point. Go ahead while traveling so they do have the Messiah is Mr. Job excellent.

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

During rain departments of the law, it was seldom used to make Dodgers is a blessed time to do so. Allah one of his dramas, the Japanese definitely a blessing time to do so. Can you think of something else?

00:16:43--> 00:16:59

dalmas loom accent so the drive the person who is 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 dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are other times when dwis are accepted. You want to say another one.

00:17:01--> 00:17:09

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.

00:17:11--> 00:17:48

When you're visiting someone sick, no, there's no Diwan 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 do I 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, Allah did this good deed for your sake. So please accept my doula. This is a form of tawassul which is permissible, which we'll get to a bit later on. So the second thing he mentions is that you make dua during the accepted times periods of time. The third thing he mentions is that you face the Qibla

00:17:48--> 00:18:22

when making dua, so you face the Qibla. When making dua. Number four, he mentions that you be in a state of purity, he mentions you be in a state of purity, so you are in the state of Voodoo while making blood to Allah subhana wa Taala number five, that you raise your hands to Allah subhana wa Tada, 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 Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is narrated, that

00:18:22--> 00:18:59

when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make dua for St. Scott, 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 show 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 subhana wa Tada. You praise Allah subhana wa Tada. This is number six if I'm not mistaken, right? For those of you

00:18:59--> 00:19:39

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 ignore claim Rahim Allah He mentioned is that you make tawassul with Allah subhanho wa Taala you make tawassul with Allah subhana wa Tada. Now this concept of tawassul Allah subhanho wa Taala he can land just with this is sort of minor he commands this What the Who la he'll we'll see that that seek a means of closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala and tawassul which is legislated,

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

is in four types tawassul 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 in sorting out off well Illa Hill is now your persona for Joe who will be her that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has the Beautiful Names, so called him by them. So how

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

Is this workflow if you've mentioned in the past before, a person who's asking for risk, he uses the name arzak. The person who was asking for forgiveness, he calls upon a toe up and a lot of fire and Allah 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. semanal bukata Rahim Allah, he mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu 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 subhana wa Taala, by the good deeds we have done by the good deeds we have done. So the first person

00:20:40--> 00:21:21

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 till 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, going through a head, a shadow Mahabharata Gandhi, sir, that I used to love her the most,

00:21:21--> 00:21:57

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 football. hajima be happy, that fear Allah subhanaw taala and do this properly. So I left the money with her and I ran away, oh, Allah, if 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

00:21:57--> 00:22:38

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'd hired a group of workers. And I 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

00:22:38--> 00:23:15

poor. I'm no, I'm Miskin. 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 one sheep 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

00:23:15--> 00:23:51

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 that you do sincerely that no one else knows about. So that when that trial and tribulation comes, you make dua to Allah subhanho wa 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 tawassul that is permissible is the Diwan

00:23:51--> 00:24:27

of the righteous person, the duar 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 was extremely righteous. He was known for his righteousness towards his mother actually released to his mother. And that is why I used to answer his voice. So the politician told Omar when you see this man asked him to make dua for you, and do ask for your forgiveness. And then Omar 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 Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he doesn't have

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

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, in the science of Hadith, this individual is known as a macabre, he is known as mukarram. Someone who lived during the time of the prophet SAW them, but never actually got to see the prophets arsenal. 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 and that year that rain didn't come down. He

00:25:00--> 00:25:32

Went to Ella bus and he told me a lot bus. He said we used to make dua through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was alive, but now that he has passed away, we're asking you to make dua for us this call for rain than they are bus made to, 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 sub,

00:25:33--> 00:26:12

what's the word I'm looking for? Is the subcontinent, culture and tradition, that when you leave a gathering, you tell the people dwama darkness that you know, remembers 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 bla for you. So you shouldn't you know, wasted that rather, it is better that you ask Allah subhanho wa 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 weakness. So

00:26:12--> 00:26:52

you'll notice that Dr. Zakaria, 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, Marathi ochem and my wife has become, you know, she's unable to bear children, she is unable to bear children. And through mentioning this, they may do how to Allah subhanaw taala granted 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

00:26:52--> 00:27:08

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.

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

Now, in this verse, we make the duar, a dino serratos, takim hedaya in the Arabic language and in Islam, hedaya 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 there'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

00:27:49--> 00:28:32

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 subhana wa Tada. 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're making blind to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Dino Serato stuck him. It is the second type of Hidayat, the second type of guidance that we're actually asking for. And you'll notice that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He

00:28:32--> 00:29:08

actually acknowledges his acknowledges both for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in version four 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 oh you messenger of Allah, indeed, you are a guide to the straight path. Indeed you are a guide to the straight 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 there will be Paul following the best of examples, there will be

00:29:08--> 00:29:48

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 details him in the kallada demon. Allah can Allah diminish, that he tells the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you all 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 subhana wa tada that is purely from Allah subhana wa tada and that is sort of Casa surah, number 28 verse 56, surah number 28, verse 56.

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

Now generally speaking, the scholars of Tafseer these are the two types of guidance that they always mention. If no claim Rahim Allah, he actually mentions a third type of guidance. He actually

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

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 subhana wa Taala teaches us to say it He did not say Rotom stuck him 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 Sirat as well, there is a bridge that will there will be crossing that is called a Sirat as well. So I want to share with you what if not claim, 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

00:30:43--> 00:31:13

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 surah that is not claimed by him Allah is talking about I want you to imagine this.

00:31:14--> 00:31:52

This is a bridge that Allah subhanaw taala created. And this bridge, it is as thin as an eyelash. It is a thin as an eyelash. If it were to pull just one hair out, you'll 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 sharp 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 spirits. Then to add on top of that, there's no light whatsoever it is absolute

00:31:52--> 00:32:33

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, your hammock Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that there were a group of people that will run across the Senate, there will be a group of people that will jog a group here that will walk a group of people that will crawl across the Senate, 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 the guidance, they always sought guidance in all of their affairs, they will hasting Lee cross this

00:32:33--> 00:33:14

bridge, but those people who took it in just took it in in in the waist, then these people they will either struggle to get across or they may even you know fall into the Hellfire, my Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. The last thing I mentioned about the Surat is that Allah Subhana Allah He will guide he will grant a light to the believers. Allah subhanaw taala he tells us in short, the Dufferin that the gu believers on the Day of Judgment, they will make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala they will say robina Pena that Oh Allah 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

00:33:15--> 00:33:50

is the light of a Salah. And this is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says in another hadith of Salah to know that the Salah is a light, the light that 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 an individual was with their Salah safety prayed on time if they prayed are with who sure if they made sure the you know they did it properly according to the Sunnah of the prophet solemn, the more likely they will have and that is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he

00:33:50--> 00:34:23

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 Sunnah of the prayers that Allah subhana wa 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.

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

Another linguistic point I want to mention is that in this verse we say it then a Serato stuck in that if you were to look at it, if dinner is guide us and then you have a Sirat 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 straight path. So you don't actually say dinner Ella or Serato Mr. King, or you don't say dinner, Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

Salatu was turkey or Dena Li a Serato. Mr. P, that conjunction that prefix it is missing. And a block time, Rahim Allah, He teaches us the reason why this is actually happening is that how the person said Guide us to the straight path? It would have said a word what would have implied guidance to that path? I put that is our objective guidance 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 it then a Li, a stellato, 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

00:35:43--> 00:36:24

why Allah subhanho wa Taala left it out with me 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 the tofik to follow this path. So the reason why there's no prefix mentioned before the straight path is because we're asking Allah subhana wa Tada. 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 Bethel lights Allah 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. Kim, what

00:36:24--> 00:37:05

exactly is the Serato? Mr. Kim, if you were to look into the books of tafsir, you will see that amongst the self amongst the predecessors, there were seven different opinions in terms of what the slaughter was. The claim, actually is seven different opinions. The first of them is stated by Ali Baba 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 subhana wa Tada. The second opinion is that of Abdullah bin abass. It is attributed to Abdullah with Miss Oda as well at the heart and others, and they said that the straight path is Islam, the straight path is Islam. The third opinion is that the

00:37:05--> 00:37:32

Serato Mr. Kane 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 qualifiers. It is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the first two Khalifa was Abu Bakar and Omar, this was the opinion of one of the students have been abducted by the name of Abu Alia and this was the opinion of our hassanal bacillary Rahim Allah.

00:37:33--> 00:38:12

Number five, it is the truth. So when you're saying academic stellato Mr. Kane, you're saying Allah guide us to the truth. This was the opinion of Majeed, who was a student of Eben Arbus. Number six, the path to paradise that Allah guided grant guidance to the path of paradise. This was the opinion of sizeable jobid. 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 masani. Back again, 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 salado stocking, they

00:38:12--> 00:38:50

want to define the salado Mr. Kane, they said it included these seven things and 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 200. 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 one ignore time Rahim Allah. He mentioned about the slotum stuck in epner coin Rahim Allah He talks about a Serato Mr. kamin he goes on to say, we will expand will expound upon the

00:38:50--> 00:39:33

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, a nun should commit shirk in his worship, just as nun should commit shift and following of His Messenger, one should purify his steelhead and purify his following of the messenger. This is the full import of the test ification that none has the right to be

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

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 throughout

00:40:00--> 00:40:40

Realizing 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, Sal bin Abdullah said, stick to the narrations and the sooner I fear that soon there 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

00:40:40--> 00:41:19

says this caused others to flee from him, and disassociated themselves from him, humiliate him and disgrace him. said no crime Rahim Allah He summarizes the salado muster came with two concepts. The two concepts he mentions is purifying your ibadah purely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the second concept is following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu in your setup, 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 narrated in Timothy, where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:41:19--> 00:42:01

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 COVID with curtains hanging on them. From the remote of the road, a 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 lured inside. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained the parable by saying that this is the truth, the straight path is Islam. The walls are the limits imposed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The

00:42:01--> 00:42:43

open doors are things that I 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 Allah monitor in the hearts of every believer in the heart of every believer. So understand this parable Exactly. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that the Serato Mr. Kane, it is a straight path. And this straight path, it has branches leading off towards it. And these branches, they're closed off by walls, meaning that you can surpass them, there's a wall that's blocking it off. But there is a curtain inside of these walls, there is a curtain inside of these walls. So an individual who

00:42:43--> 00:43:17

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, another voice calls out from above, beware, do not live this curtain, otherwise you will be learned insight. And then there's an other 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

00:43:17--> 00:43:54

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 Koran, that 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 use you succumb yourself to desires which Allah subhanho wa Taala has prohibited. So stay with inside those boundaries stay with inside those

00:43:54--> 00:44:35

boundaries. And then one last point I mentioned over here is that from the above verse, we also learn that the straight path is one path and not many, indeed anything that deviates from it is to be regarded as Miss guidance. And that is why the Messenger of Allah is told in certain Anam Allah subhanaw taala tells the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, and certainly anon surah number six verse 153. And verily 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 pies. Now Allah call that the corn. So here we learn that the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala is only one

00:44:35--> 00:44:59

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 subhanho wa Taala and that is what Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala commands 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 picture

00:45:00--> 00:45:34

straight line. He said that this is the Serato Mr. Kim, this is the straight path. So the companions asked in yada su Allah, Who is the straight path or who are the people of the straight path, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam 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 Allah who I know, agree to at this point, and that will be the straight path, that will be the straight path.

00:45:35--> 00:46:18

The last thing I mentioned over here to conclude with the lights Allah is that this verse goes on to say this is actually the next verse, and then also auto stocking, and then it continues serrata Medina, and I'm telling him The path of those whom you have favored, the path of those whom you are favored. So we notice 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

00:46:18--> 00:47:03

in this verse when miyota Allah Allah Sula, who, for Allah He commanded Dena and am Allah Who are they him and then the begin was said decreed was Shahada. He was solid hain what hacer una una economica. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this verse, that whoever obeys the Messenger of Allah, and Allah subhana wa Taala then he will be in the company of the following four categories of people the fall following four categories of people for that he commanded Anna Anna mala who I laid him in, in the been the profits will sit directly in the sincerely truthful ones, the sincerely truthful ones, were Shahada, the martyrs was solid him and the righteous and the righteous. So the prophets

00:47:03--> 00:47:44

these are known, these are This includes the prophets and the messengers. This includes the nubby antidotal seul, the Nabi and our soul. Now what is the difference between the newbie and also the newbie 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 Salaam, then the Rasool is anyone who was 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 little soul was no Haile salam, the first Russell was no honey sinner, and these are the words of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:47:44--> 00:48:20

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 are 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 inshallah. But you need to give me both of them. I don't want just one. I need both of them be the lights on.

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

Sorry,

00:48:25--> 00:48:28

Abubakar acidic La Jolla. And who was the second?

00:48:29--> 00:48:30

Khadija la

00:48:32--> 00:48:35

Don't shout out? I need both of them at the same time. Go ahead.

00:48:39--> 00:48:40

Incorrect.

00:48:42--> 00:48:42

Go ahead.

00:48:44--> 00:48:45

Not incorrect.

00:48:47--> 00:48:48

Go ahead.

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

Incorrect.

00:48:53--> 00:48:59

I'll give you a hint. The second individual is not a Sahabi. The second individual is not a Sahabi.

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

Incorrect.

00:49:04--> 00:49:19

Incorrect. Just to tell you why. Obviously, the process of them would be an obvious answer, but we don't give them the title of Siddiq because he has a higher level of being on the BNR soon, so while you're correct, he wasn't given that title because he was in the BNR soon, go ahead.

00:49:21--> 00:49:28

So that being said he wasn't so happy he was in the second person was not a Sahabi Go ahead.

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

Okay.

00:49:36--> 00:50:00

accent that is correct. So you can take this later on inshallah. So, I'll, I'll tell you the answer. The first of them is Medea, Allah. So I know what to Allah says in the Quran about Maria. Well can Omaha said deca? 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

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

21 was Abu Bakar the Allahu anhu, particularly when the incident of a Salah El Mirage happened, they said that you know what your friend has said now, he said that he traveled to Jerusalem in one night, Abu Bakar Abdullah, one whom 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 is when he was given the title of acidic. So in our history, these are the two people that we know of that were given the title of acidic, and Allah subhanaw taala 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

00:50:36--> 00:50:56

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 subhana wa Taala on the battlefield, and this is the highest level of Shahada. This is the highest level of Shahada.

00:50:58--> 00:51:38

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 Allah 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 there mentioned that Shahada, so anyone who is do dies in the state of struggling is considered a Shaheed. So this encompasses all of those people. This encompasses all of those people. And then the last category is a solid in the

00:51:38--> 00:52:16

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 mentioned about this, is that this cause 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 umbrella? And also, because they were the inheritors of the prophets? Would they follow under the Siddiq cone? Because they're the first ones to affirm the truth and teach it to the people? Will they follow under the martyrs? Because their whole life is a struggle to learn and to teach? Or would they fall

00:52:16--> 00:52:43

a fall under the last one, which is, you know, they did excessively by their extra ibadah? And the answer to this question, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is that the scholar of Islam, the student of knowledge, he would fall under 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 we sing this a lot, but I just keep remembering different things.

00:52:44--> 00:53:24

Sheikh Mohammed amin has some pretty he's a scholar that passed away to him Allah He was of the same generation of sacred nobles, and she called Vanya, rahimullah, maybe even a bit more senior to them. He's written a book of Tafseer, called a dwarf on bayad. And the point of this book of tafsir, is to explain the Quran with the Quran. So uses the Quran to explain the Quran. So you'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

00:53:24--> 00:54:02

Bakr radi Allahu Allah. He uses this to prove the truthfulness of the Caliph of Abu Bakar the Allah one meaning that through this verse, then a Serato Mr. Kane sirata Latina Nam tala him. He uses this verse to prove that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was most deserving to become Khalifa. How did he do this? The way he did 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 than the Shahada, and the solid home. These are the four categories. So after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is most deserving to

00:54:02--> 00:54:43

become their leader, it is the next person or the group of categories of people, either the Siddiq on either the Shahada or the solid home. Now the Shahada obviously cannot be a next leader because he's already passed away. So leaves you with the silicone and the solid home. So 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 lutcher so Allah subhana wa tada has preferred and given virtue to the city code over the solid home and therefore the city code should be given precedence or preference. And that is why after when the province of Southern passed away this I was a proof

00:54:43--> 00:55:00

that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was most deserving to be Khalifa because Allah subhanho wa Taala had preferred people in this category or had preserved preferred people in these writings, the prophets and messengers, then the city code, and then the Shahada, and then the solid Han you guys understood

00:55:00--> 00:55:11

In the last point, everyone understood it and from there, so we'll conclude with that in sha Allah Salallahu alaihe salam wa barakaatuh and the BNF Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. And we will take five questions. We have

00:55:12--> 00:55:13

five questions.

00:55:15--> 00:55:15

Guide.

00:55:18--> 00:55:19

nation, here's the deal

00:55:23--> 00:55:24

when I heard the

00:55:26--> 00:55:27

noise on this one,

00:55:28--> 00:55:29

okay.

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

Next, right,

00:55:33--> 00:55:34

right.

00:55:35--> 00:56:11

So, how do you reconcile the two Hadith ascent? So the brothers question was that we mentioned nine times where the doulas are answered, but another Hadith of the prophets of Salaam, he says that all of our doulas are answered in one of three ways all of our dogs are answered in one of three ways. Either Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us what we want when we want, or Allah subhana 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.

00:56:12--> 00:56:52

This Hadith is referring to when Allah subhanho wa Taala actually accepts the dua, the first Hadees in terms of timings, or the timings that, you know, if you fall under that time, then you have fulfilled one of the conditions of being accepted. So this is when it gets accepted. And this is how to get it accepted. That's the difference. So not every Dwyer is going to be accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada. 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 subhanho wa Taala is taking their Soloway unless final does not going to accept it at that

00:56:52--> 00:57:27

time. So person has to fulfill all of the conditions first, and then the device will be accepted. I can't remember which haluk 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 nighttime inshallah we'll share it in a in another halaqa where you mentioned eight things where you says you accepted the Koran, but you don't follow it. You take the Messenger of Allah says Allah, but you don't follow it. You talk about the death, but you don't fear it. And you mentioned these eight conditions. So after all of these things, how do you accept Allah subhanaw

00:57:27--> 00:58:00

taala? Or sorry? How do you expect Allah subhanaw taala? To answer to us, another Hadith deposit seldom mentions, the man who ATAR on the mind who were wore Haram, the man whose earnings were hard on the man whose spendings were Haram, the messenger Allah says to them said, then how will Allah subhanaw taala answer the dua of this individual. So you have to meet all of the conditions first, before the dog can actually be accepted. So if you meet all the conditions, then you do our bidding, it 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.

00:58:02--> 00:58:04

Next question. Go ahead.

00:58:11--> 00:58:13

Yes, every time

00:58:14--> 00:58:19

doctor like my last night, I found out my boss, or any my boss

00:58:20--> 00:58:22

at the end, who is an early

00:58:24--> 00:58:26

metal often? Yes.

00:58:30--> 00:59:02

Exactly. So the brother is saying that in the Indian subcontinent culture, when they apart from the gatherings, they'll tell the people please remember me and your device. And the answer to this is that this is something that is discouraged to do, it should not be done. Because there has there been any goodness in this, when the companions or their loved one would have partied in their gatherings, they would have told aboubaker remember menial to us, they would have told you about remember me and your daughters. Now obviously as compared to obachan, oma or nothing. So the company didn't say to the likes of Abu Bakr and Omar, then who are the people to Sage to the likes of us. So

00:59:02--> 00:59:33

generally speaking, this concept of asking other people to make blog 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 masjid the people that abide by the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala the people that stay away from Riba and Zina. You know, their hearts are touching the mustard, 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 device or make dua for this and then it will be accepted. In all other

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

cases in scenarios, you are better off making a dog by yourself. Because Allah subhanaw taala he tells us in the Quran, why the sun okay by the unevenly. Would you Buddha today that if my slave is about me, telling my slave that I am near, I answer all the duels of the one who supplicates to me. So that is what we should do that rather than asking everyone to make a blog for us. We should make blogs ourselves and that is the better thing to do. Good question. Allahu Allah, Allah

01:00:00--> 01:00:01

Question number three, go ahead,

01:00:02--> 01:00:06

you're gonna have to raise your voice, they can't hear you, or come forward actually

01:00:14--> 01:00:15

resolve.

01:00:22--> 01:00:25

So, we all work together because

01:00:29--> 01:00:31

we have to say, well, no more.

01:00:32--> 01:00:48

So they only do it individually. First, they may die 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.

01:00:50--> 01:00:51

altogether.

01:00:59--> 01:01:26

They, 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 subhanaw taala will help you out in those situations. Make sense? Excellent. Question number four, go ahead.

01:01:35--> 01:01:37

is given a scripture?

01:01:39--> 01:01:53

Allahu Tada, Adam? So the Buddhist 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 Allah who I am? I don't know, that possibly could be one of the things. But I don't know.

01:01:55--> 01:02:06

You know, 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?

01:02:14--> 01:02:44

Right, 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 would be a difference. Allahu Allah, Allah 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 pastas Salaam, these abode was given to those the Torah given to Musa the Injeel given to Isa, then we have the so half of Ibrahim and Musa as well, these are the major

01:02:45--> 01:03:03

scriptures that we refer to. But here the Messenger of Allah system also tells us that the first little soul was no Haile Salaam. 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. Allah husana. Question number four. Last question of the evening. Go ahead.

01:03:11--> 01:03:15

Is it true that the doors that are mentioned in the Quran are going to be more accepted?

01:03:16--> 01:03:53

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 advocates of making the law rather than looking at what you are saying, but what I can what I can say about your question is that the dwis 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 Koran are definitely more preferable than the dwis that we will make for ourselves. But at the same time, there are certain instances

01:03:53--> 01:04:30

that will not be mentioned in the Quran. So for example, you know, your mother is extremely sick. You know, the Koran will not tell us what blog 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 da or your own da, it is better to use the Quran. However, if you're in situation where there is no Quranic da, then you can make up your own duar 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 Allah and a favor from Allah

01:04:30--> 01:04:59

subhana wa Tada. If you look at a 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 on veillonella yamu bathroom, he knew how to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you look at the company of a police, he was in the company of the mother acre and the company of Adam and he said, yet all of this was taken away from him, by him making one mistake

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

than 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 my choosing the path of misguidance. And just one situation. Allah subhanho wa Taala took guidance away altogether from a bliss. And if it can happen to someone like a police that it was in the company of the angels, and the company of the prophets, you know, view saw revelation saw the profits saw everything that would have happened. 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

01:05:38--> 01:06:15

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 miss guidance. Remember the story of a police that remember that to 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 and Allah protect us all. So keep that in mind. And that is why it is so important to keep making this if dental salata Mr King, that our law until the day we die, getting 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

01:06:15--> 01:06:50

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 Allah didn't set out to Mr. King, this is what you're asking for that Oh Allah keep guiding me to the best of my dunya and the best of my accuracy, and I'll accept it from all of us.
