Begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala and bearing witness that nun has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad Sallallahu it he was Saddam is his final messenger We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his blessing path until the day of judgment. We ask Allah to make us amongst them Allah I mean, your brothers and sisters last week we talked about this particular Hadith in a Sitka yeah de la. When Alberto yeah de la Jana, whenever Julius took hat, October in de la he Sadiq Khan,
that verily, truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to paradise. And a person will continue to tell the truth until they are written with Allah subhanaw taala as a Sunday as a person of truth. And another narration, the Prophet SAW Selim and of course, the opposite of that, well, in Al Khatib yeah De La Jolla. That verily lying leads to wickedness all forms of wickedness and wickedness leads to hellfire, and a person will continue to lie until they're written with Allah subhanaw taala as a liar. In another narration, and this is what I want to begin the discussion today with, there's a similar narration where the prophets lie some talks about a different quality
and it's the only narration that is close to this one in terms of a quality that bears many traits that either is consequential and that it leads a person to paradise or it leads a person to hellfire. And this is a Hadith from Abu Huraira Allah the Allahu Taala I know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I'll hire Amina Iman will Eman, Phil Jana Walburga Amina al Jaffa, well Jaffa often now higher which I will do my best to define in sha Allah to Allah HYAH which is modesty, being basketball being decent HYAH is in Jana hayah is in Jana, it is a quality that is from Iman you cannot have Eman without higher and higher with Allah subhanaw taala is Iman that a
person feels a great sense of decency, modesty, bashfulness with their Lord, and in all of their dealings. hayah is in Jannah and on the opposite side the Prophet SAW Selim said Alba Alba is from El Jaffa and Jaffa is in hellfire Alba Donnell Jaffa it gets a little bit more complex. Alba is when a person is shameless Bill Cole will Amman their shameless with their manners, they become foul. A foul mouth person is someone who's beneath and the prophets lie Selim is saying that Alberta when a person becomes so shameless, then that is part of a greater disease and that is called El jefe. And the way that Lima Munna Rahim Allah to Anna described al Jaffa, he said that Jaffa refers to a
person and alkali immediately more evil. Well, I actually tell the truth Kira that a person's heart become so shut off, that even when they're reminded they're so defiant and brazen in their disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't affect them anymore. Whereas when a person is just guilty of Ebola, you kind of remind them, tap them, tell them to calm down, you give them a reminder and they might calm themselves down. They might listen they might be receptive. But Al Jaffa is that a person has become so insolent, so defiant, so brazen in their disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala that even when they're reminded everything about
them has gone hard and cold, they don't listen anymore. They're just not moved anymore. And so from the greatest signs of Allah Jaffa, in fact that the scholars mentioned is that a person is no longer moved by the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala the Quran has no effect on them. If a person tells them to fear Allah subhanaw taala they blow up on that person and tell them a tequila, they'll respond back with something so grievious and so nasty, that you'll never advise that person again, because they've reached the point where they're openly defiant. So if you think of the stepping stones and the previous Hadith, I will tell them to Al Fujimura a person lies a lot, and then a
person gets to a point where they become a compulsive liar. And then a person starts to use that lying to establish trickery and all of their different fields of life and they just disobey Allah subhanaw taala in so many different ways. Here, a person who has no shame in their speech and in their actions will not just corrupt their manners, but eventually their morals and no longer even be able to hear when someone is warning them and someone is telling them to be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala so before I get to the Hadith about guaranteeing Jana, there are fewer Hadith where the province licenses I guarantee Janna, let's just sort out these two concepts are set. And up
here. We talked about truthfulness when it comes to a higher the profit size. So I'm suddenly Quilly Dean and Hello, every religion has its key attribute its key characteristic and the whole of Islam. The key attribute of Islam is higher is modesty, decency, the opposite of shamelessness that Muslims are decent and dignified and modest people that is supposed to be the case at least, that that is the most apparent and most observable trait of the Muslims and the prophets lie. Some said Al Hayat laity Illa behave, that there is nothing that higher is in decency as in that this modesty comes into except that it brings good why because sometimes shyness is looked down upon shame is looked
down upon even in the society of the prophets lie Selim. The prophets lie some walked by a man that was talking to his brother and telling him to stop being so shy, stop being so modest and the prophets lie. Some said Leave him alone, because the higher is from Iman, that modesty is a good quality in Islam. It doesn't take away from confidence and being assertive, but that a person is is humble, decent, modest, shy, bashful, does not stop them from also being impactful, Confident, Assertive where they need to be higher rules out arrogance, not assertiveness higher rules out in decency, not confidence. That's not what HYAH does. The prophets lie some is the greatest example of
that. In fact, if you need to raise your voice and cut people off and be shameless and curse to make your points, that means that what you have is very weak. So you're trying to overcompensate with bad manners and with loudness and being brazen. The prophets lie Selim was dignified. He was assertive confidence but dignified it his Salatu was Salam and everything about his demeanor, represented what Hey, up is a modest person, humble person. He never would become loud, like a donkey braying in the streets it his Salatu was set up. Now this is interesting and there are multiple Hadith and higher higher on Kulu all of higher is good. And subhanAllah I'll actually reference you know, Sheikh
Mohammed is Chanel, he wrote a paper called Higher more than just modesty for Yaqeen Institute and it goes through a beautiful breakdown of what higher is and the last portion of that paper is how to cultivate higher which with the time of the whole time I won't be able to get too deeply into that. What I wanted to talk about instead are three Hadith three a hadith where the prophets lie some says I guarantee Jana now if you hear us Allah say some of them say I guarantee you Jana,
what are you going to do if you're as a hobby, you're going to listen very closely. And he does this alayhi salatu salam three times and they're all around the same theme. So let's go over these three Hadith and sha Allah Tala. Very briefly, number one, Hadith Solomon saregama the Allahu Taala and one very famous Hadith in Bukhari where the prophets lie some said, Men young man Lee Medina, Allah ye ye been originally he Augmon the whole Jana. Whoever guarantees for me what is between their jaws meaning their tongue and their private parts, what is between their legs, their chastity, their modesty, whoever guarantees modesty and guarantees their tongue for me I guarantee that person Jana.
Meaning if you are able to gain control over yourself and these two regards in the way that you use your tongue and in your task study, I guarantee you Jana Subhan. Allah when you look at the Quran, Allah azza wa jal as he describes the believers, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions and Allah
Have we mortally alone the Fuji him Have you learned that there are people who guard their tongues and they guard their private parts they guard their chastity. They stay away from Zina and what leads towards Zina, they stay away from adultery and fornication and what leads to it? Well so Allah sai some said if you figure those two things out for me, I will guarantee you Jana now there is another Hadith which all falls within this so if you think about these two what how do you branch out from these two? And this hadith I want you to try to memorize the traits inshallah Tada there are six traits that the Prophet slice and I mentioned the first three of them should be very easy if
you've attended the last few weeks of the hotbar
Hadith about Oh mama about the Allahu Taala and home and authentic hadith call it his Salatu was Salam
oke Filoli Bisset in Oak Flula Kamal Jana that guarantee me six things and I will guarantee you Jana six things Rasul Allah say some EMSA either had that Hadoken fella Jakob, when you speak don't lie. Then he said what either what are the fella you've lived and if you make a promise don't break your promise. Why that tominaga fella via phone and if you are entrusted with something don't betray the trust, basically three traits when it comes to hypocrisy. Caller ID his Salatu was Salam wa will Uppsala come wonderful wife Hello Fujichrome bakufu idea come and the prophets lie Selim said, guard your gaze your eyesight and guard your private parts and guard your hands from hurting people.
Interesting Hadith six traits. Let's Allah sigh some said if you have this seek these six traits in your life. I will guarantee you Janna that's very interesting is that there are two fountains, the fountain of sit, the fountain of truthfulness and the fountain of higher which is modesty. And all of these traits are going back to the exact same two things if a person can maintain these things in their life. And you know what else the scholars mentioned is also la sigh Salam would never say I guarantee you Jana with something that was not observable, all of these traits are observable if you're trying to make a serious claim with Allah subhanaw taala to enter into Jana? Are you able to
actually look through these six things and say that I am not guilty of harming in regards to these six things. Also, some of the element mentioned what that when you look at these things that the prophets lie some gives, they're all about restraint.
On What is Allah azza wa jal to say? When I had enough sandhill Hawa in the agenda to heal a person who is able to restrain themselves from their desires, they have Jana, when you think about Jana person starts to think about pMLN a person starts to think about lots of fasting a person starts to think about lots of charity and the prophets lie son of his saying, Jana, first and foremost starts off with what guard these things, guard yourself, protect yourself, restrict yourself in this regard. And lastly, dear brothers and sisters, there is an intersection between higher and such
an intersection, which is that the scholars say a lack of higher in the deeper sense is even more subtle than hypocrisy. When we talk about the signs of hypocrisy, as it comes into terms with the way that you deal with people, there are obvious violations, obvious violations of contracts, obvious broken promises, there, you know, a person makes a promise and they break their promise, a person says something they know that they're lying. A person is given a secret and they break that secret or they're trusted with something they break that trust, when it comes to hire, hire really speaks to the more subtle forms of indecency. What do I mean by that? A person who is sneaky when
they're lying, to where you could cheat someone right in front of you, and they never even knew it. You didn't really break your promise, but you kind of did. Because higher refers to a person having a sense of shame and decency that they govern themselves by where even where they have a loophole, they don't take advantage of the loophole. So the first implementation of this is the obvious and that's why when Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, animal hyena today, no matter for us to do that. Allah knows what the eyes the fraud of the eyes, the betrayal of the eyes. What did we say that was that a person is looking at you and you lower your gaze, as soon as they walk by you look, because
they no longer can see you. So in front of them, you maintained at least public decorum, but then you betrayed that when they were not looking anymore when they no longer could tell. The prophets lie Selim also said and Abu Hurayrah total the Allahu Taala and hola Jamberry this is the thing and your Cornella Anna, it is not befitting for a Sadiq for a truthful person, to be in the habit of having a foul tongue, a tongue that curses people, and so HYAH
Insert are two fountains there are two traits that the scholars mentioned are actually from the major two qualities that if a person observes them in all of their daily affairs, then
then they will be from those for whom Jana is guaranteed. The last thing Dear brothers and sisters not end with the Hadith from the prophets I seldom is that both higher and sit, our reverence for the sight of Allah subhanaw taala upon you, in areas where Allah azza wa jal is most likely to be not remembered.
What do I mean by that when you go into salah, you say Allahu Akbar and you start to think about the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon your higher modesty and shyness is not cowardice it's not because someone else is looking at you. And maybe you're just not that aggressive. You start to calm yourself down, higher is first and foremost with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that you're shy from the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you. And so you know that Allah sees things that maybe the person in front of you is not seeing in the moment, you know, that Allah sees you and other people do not see you. And you're always thinking about the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. So I want you
to think about it this way. You know how when a person gets into their Salah stands to say Allahu Akbar and now let me think about Allah azza wa jal watching me and pay attention HYAH and sit actually mean that you start to do that when you're engaging in a business contract. You think of Allah site, as you get into a conversation you think of Allah site upon you, Allah is watching me, and I'm making this promise right now. I'm not gonna break this promise. Allah is watching me and I'm about to speak. Allah is watching me and I'm in front of the computer screen I'm in front of that phone and no one else sees me right now. Allah is watching me so HYAH and sit means that the
gaze of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah upon you, is guiding your societal transactions in the same way that a person would start to guide their worship.
Where before I embark on something when I'm about to do something, yeah, Allah, I'm shy. I'm shy. I don't want to violate what Allah subhanaw taala has told me not to violate the last Hadith where the prophets lie certain guarantees Janna and we'll end with this
hadith and one of the bingeable the law of Toronto and it has several variations Colorado has Salatu was Salam. And as our aim would be based in Veerabhadra Jana, we're debating fee was Alton Jana.

joking. And for the one who makes their character Excellent. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them Allahumma Amin Aquila, holy ha That was tough. But he certainly was mean or Salam o sandata Carnaby now Muhammad Ali he was looking to get married

I know that these are a lot of a hadith but I want you to remember these six traits. And I want you to think about them getting into he Tyler and inshallah Tyler as you think about how to cultivate hay out in your life. It's just a reminder, you know, when the prophets lie some talks about the end of days being days of deception.
The greatest deception is when a person deceives themselves into thinking that because they fooled the creation, that they have fooled the Creator. Be mindful of the sight of Allah subhanho to Allah and ask Allah azza wa jal to grant you these qualities of an HIA was Sitka truthfulness and modesty from which all of the Hadith all of the guarantees for those that are guaranteed Jana stem from May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us both of these traits Allahumma Amin Allahumma Nina want me nuts.
