Episode Notes

Today’s du’a from Imam ibn al-Jawzi encourages us to do good and to share knowledge, then invoke Allah swt with our good deeds in prayer.
[ Day 11 Du’a] إِلَهِيْ لَا تُعَذِّبْ لِسَاناً يُخْبِرُ عَنْكَ، وَلا عَيْناً تَنْظُرُ إِلَى عُلُوْمٍ تَدُلُّ عَلَيْكَ ، وَلا يَداً تَكْتُبُ حَدِيْثَ رَسُوْلِكَ؛ فَبِعِزَّتِكَ لا تُدْخِلَنِي النَّارَ
“My God, do not punish a tongue that informs about You, nor an eye that looks upon (Islamic) sciences which point to You, nor a hand that writes the traditions of Your Messenger. So by Your honor, do not admit me into the Fire.”

So I want to come on up until I get a cut. So welcome back to prayers of the pious.

00:00:06--> 00:00:50

So today's prayer actually comes from a man who lives centuries after the Prophet peace be upon him. really a great teacher, a great scholar, Imam, Josie Rahim Allah to Allah. And even though Josie was a man that used to actually tell his students, if you make it to genda, and you don't find me, then ask about me then then then ask Allah subhanaw taala to enter me into gender as well. He was a man that used to cry out to allies, he had sessions with 1000s and 1000s of people, well, ah, do not punish me. Because if you punish me, then the people will say that Allah punished the one that used to teach us about him. So he used to have these beautiful drawers and these beautiful please to

00:00:50--> 00:01:24

Allah subhana wa Taala, which was really one that was born out of a fear of hypocrisy that I'm teaching people about you don't humiliate me because then they will say that, that Allah humiliated The one who used to teach us about him, that I'm guiding people to gender or I'm acting as an instrument of guidance allows ultimate guidance, but don't let it be that people show up agenda and they don't find the one that taught you are taught them about you. So this particular prayer is the one that I'll share for today, though, that I've chosen today. He said, ILA he, oh my lord, not to listen and you

00:01:26--> 00:01:37

do not punish a tongue that informs about you. What are in and tambura either Illumina doula Alec, nor an AI that looks upon sciences which point to you

00:01:38--> 00:02:16

whether you're done textual, Hadith, or sudak, nor a hand that writes the traditions of your messenger febby or Exotica, that's done enough. So by Your Honor, do not admit me into the fire Subhana Allah so he said again, not to add the police and you could be wrong, do not punish a tongue that informs about you what are Anan Tom little either a woman to do a leak nor an eye that looks upon the Islamic sciences which point to you when you're done tactical Hadith or pseudo ignore a hand that writes the traditions of your message messenger February's that tickler to treat any now. And so by Your Honor, do not admit me into the fire. This is one of the things that we learned from

00:02:16--> 00:02:52

the Prophet peace be upon him to invoke a loss of Hannah Montana with our good deeds. And that's not out of arrogance, but it's actually out of humility, that I know that I have flaws that could potentially cancel out these good deeds. But Oh Allah, don't punish this tongue that teaches people about you. So in that you learned that you should try to teach about a lot, don't punish an AI that reads about you and that that studies the sciences to get closer to you. And do not punish a hand that writes the traditions of your messenger. What it means is that you're invoking a loss of Hannah Montana that I recognize that I have shortcomings I recognize that I'm not the best person I

00:02:52--> 00:03:32

recognize that they have flaws that I need to overcome. But oh, a lot out of your mercy and your generosity and your benevolence and by your honor. Do not enter me into the fire. Knowing that I was a an instrument of guidance to your gardens and May Allah subhanaw taala allow all of us to be beneficial to others without losing ourselves May Allah subhana wa tada guide us and guide through us rectify our hearts and rectify other hearts through us And may Allah subhana wa tada allow us to enter Paradise by His mercy and accept our good deeds and forgive our sins a llama I mean just like malachite on See you all next time in sha Allah.
