It's mercy

00:00:35--> 00:01:01

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah mighty respected brothers and sisters mighty viewers. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My name is Josie and I welcome you back into another episode of reflections of Ramadan. Today's topic is very special topic. In fact, it's a very touchy topic, most beloved by everyone.

00:01:03--> 00:01:51

Doha to Allah subhanho wa Taala How can we get our Doha? How can we get our supplications accepted by Allah Almighty subhana wa Tada. Visit sisters every day you've got millions and millions of people who invoke Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala they could be invoking Allah in so many different languages yet Allah subhana wa tada understands each one of them. And Allah subhana wa tada answers each one of them sapan that is the power of the heart. The heart, my brothers and sisters is the weapon of the believer. What is the essence of worship, in fact that is a form of worship, as the Prophet Muhammad it Sufism says, In the Hadith reported by Buhari in his book called an Arab and

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

Muslim and this hadith is narrated by and remembered but she that the Prophet Mohammed is such a slim says,

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

who

00:02:00--> 00:02:02

the Prophet says, is a bad

00:02:04--> 00:02:45

the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he used to invoke Allah subhanho wa Taala and he used to encourage us to invoke and supplicate Allah subhanho wa Taala without disappearing from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran in so many is in so many verses different verses of the Quran. He says yes, no neck they ask you Oh, Mohammed yes no naka Annie can they ask you about the moon sighting? Tell them Oh, Mohammed. Yes, Alona Canyon. How many were amazing. They asked you about alcohol tell them they asked you about gambling tell them they ask you about karma common will may see a hidden layer.

00:02:47--> 00:02:58

They ask you about the menses tell them oh Mohammed. So in so many is Allah says they ask you tell them or Mohammed except in one particular ayah. What by Allah?

00:03:02--> 00:03:02

What is

00:03:03--> 00:03:04

the body

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

in the body?

00:03:10--> 00:03:10

The body

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

in the body? Oh gee Buddha, either.

00:03:19--> 00:03:30

g Bulli, well, you may know whom yaku when my servants asked you about me? I am near what he does.

00:03:31--> 00:03:55

for India, Allah answers himself by himself and he says, I am near. He doesn't tell them I am the Alesis I am you I answer the call of the needy, because they came and they asked the Prophet Mohammed is awesome. How can we invoke Allah? Should we do it loudly, quietly, secretly? How can we do it? And then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says, you know, then this ayah was revealed what he does.

00:03:57--> 00:04:35

And when my servants asked you about me, I am near Allah is near all he wants you to do. My brothers and sisters, my the viewers, it just asked him invoking you may tell me what I have. But this is why I'm here to tell you that there are certain requirements or certain conditions or etiquettes, for you, to be accepted. But you know what, rest assured that Allah Subhana Allah Allah He loves to be invoked, he loves to be asked, and like you and I, you may come and ask me that I may come and ask you, you know, somebody may come and ask you today for some help, and you may help him and then the next day, they will ask you for some help. And then you may help them again. Maybe the third day,

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

the fourth day you get upset. You say, Can you find somebody else? Am I the only one here? I have to the first time the second time? Oh, come on, find somebody else. What as Allah subhanho wa Taala the day that you choose to not ask him the day when you choose to ask somebody else without Allah Subhana Allah. Allah gets so upset and so fierce as the Prophet is at the seminary portrait

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

In this headache this hadith narrated by Abu Goya report is boom the hustle. Muhammad Allah Allah, the prophet Allah Sufism says mellem Yes, Allah ha Yo, la whosoever does not invoke Allah, Allah who will become upset will become unhappy will become mad at that person who does not invoke him. Subhanahu wa Tada. Now the question that arises is

00:05:24--> 00:05:41

how can I make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are there any prerequisites? Yes, there are other prerequisites, there are some conditions and also etiquettes for you to be accepted. And that's what we're going to talk about today in sha Allah how Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What do you love?

00:05:46--> 00:06:24

invoke Allah using his names and attributes, invoking Allah subhanho wa Taala, using his names and using his attributes, like the Prophet Mohammed Ali certainly needs to say in this highly reported by Mr. Mohammed in his Muslim besotted, and also this same as it is reported by even a hotshot I am by Imam commentary and narrated by Abdullah and the mushroom that the Prophet Mohammed arisa to Sudan is to say Allahumma inni Luca bico, leesman hulak summated enough sick oh and Zelda houfy kita our alimta, who hadn't been hollowtech

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

de el Milam

00:06:27--> 00:06:27

and

00:06:29--> 00:07:03

a cul de mano, sorry, he was they had the handiwork of me, the Prophet Muhammad and he said to them, he used to invoke Allah subhana wa tada used to say, Oh Allah, I asked you by every name that I know, and every name that I do not know. So he asks him by every name that he knows, and every name that he does not know. I didn't start to see them and then he would go and ask Allah Subhana Allah for whatever he wants, and he slept with them. So the first may be etiquette my brothers and sisters mighty viewers, invoking and making the art of Allah subhana wa tada number one.

00:07:05--> 00:07:53

Number one is to start by saying, and hamdulillah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah You start by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala, glorifying Allah subhana wa Taala sending the blessings upon the Prophet Mohammed Allah He of Salatu was Salam. And before you ask Allah subhana wa Taala for anything that you want, right? You just you know, prepare you don't just go and ask him Allah, I want Allah I want you prepared. And the way to prepare the DA is number one, you know, will do do you have to make although it is not mandatory, but it is a Sunnah, isn't it? It is a it is inshallah hota and etiquette in making that as the Prophet alayhi salatu salam used to do

00:07:54--> 00:08:26

reported by a student reported by a train that the Prophet was a slum in one time I went to see him asking him for something and then the progress of them you want that he made will do and he came and then he made the up to Allah subhanahu wa tada also facing the Qibla facing the Qibla. It's a Sunnah and it's an etiquette when you're making the either you have to or do you have to lie, you don't have to, but I'm just saying chances are when you're facing the Qibla, you're getting so close to Allah subhanho wa Taala as the Prophet Elisa to say, Mister do this is important. In fact, by in a Manila, we

00:08:28--> 00:09:10

went to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you know, in the Battle of Babel, and the Prophet when it was in his tent, facing the Qibla, facing the Qibla. And then he was raising his hand which is another etiquette if you want to make the up to raise your hands, the provenance of mysteries is ends until his armpits used to be shown. Ali salatu salam raising the asking Allah subhanho wa Taala so the problem was Assam was facing the Qibla raising, you know his hands and he was invoking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and then you start by glorifying him like I said, glorify Him praising subhana wa Tada. And then as you praise and glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala use his names and

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

attributes. Allahumma yahama Rahimi Yeah, that's in your psyche. Yeah, Yama, Yama,

00:09:21--> 00:09:37

Yama, Yama, de yada, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada. You know, calling him calling him using his name's using his attributes using these actions. Subhana who What? Another etiquettes

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

in making the art is to repeat the thrice Is it a must. Law is not a must. But again, it's just an etiquette into making the as the profit analysis lab used to do used to repeated more than once more than twice it used to repeated three times like saying, Allah homophily Allah mcfeely Allah McPhee.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Allah, Muhammad.

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

Muhammad Allah.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

Allahu

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

Allahu

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

Allahu,

00:10:12--> 00:10:16

Allahu Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:10:17--> 00:10:56

Allah, Allah, Allah Maha home, camara bonus Allah and then you just invoke Allah subhana wa Tada. But everything that you want everything that you need anything that you need from him subhanho wa Taala. And remember my brothers and sisters, we make dua oftentimes, you know and all the time asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for things that we do not have, what we tend to forget what we have. And what we have is a lot really what we have is a lot. So you know, ask Allah Subhana Allah tala, also to preserve the those blessings that he has blessed you with the blessings of the eyesight, the blessing of the hearing, the blessings of your health, the blessing of your children,

00:10:56--> 00:11:25

the blessing of your parents, these other blessings and these blessings cannot be enumerated when we talk about the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala we cannot enumerate them. So my brothers and sisters really when you make, remember, you know, ask Allah Subhana Allah also for you know, to preserve things, those things that you have. The another etiquette like I said, you know, when you're repeated to more than once, rest assured that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves an ill half of it.

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

That you ask him continuously,

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

that you do not stop invoking him.

00:11:33--> 00:12:17

Ask him continuously. Ask him today, ask him tomorrow, ask him the answer keep on asking him invoking him, you know, because Subhana Allah, you know, some people they they make the art today and they want the answer yesterday. Look at the life of the Prophet Mohammed dallisa to Sudan. In the mecca Mecca, the Messiah came in Medina so many years later Subhana Allah, you know, so just all we have to do is just keep on making Allah subhanho wa Taala with never disappearing because the Prophet Mohammed Ali salatu salam used to say in this height reported by Buhari, also reported by Muslim anonymity and Abu Dhabi, the prophet Allah sutra says and this is narrated by Abu Laila use

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

the jab who had the command and

00:12:20--> 00:12:53

the out of the out to further Mr. Jubilee, the prophet alayhi salatu salam used to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala should answer your call, as long as you do not ask them to drop as long as you do not rush the door. Somebody may say I made the bed I don't say no, no, I didn't see no answer. Then Allah will not answer you. Just keep on making dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. And remember what he says, things could happen to you. Three things could happen. When you make you make Allah Subhana Allah Allah will grant you what you want what you have asked for.

00:13:05--> 00:13:38

Allah says it was granted to you or Allah subhanho wa Taala may, in fact, ward off some evil that was meant to happen to you, Allah subhanho wa Taala when warded off, we don't know yeah, see, ya see, you do not know really because you know, he can only see this far, but you don't know what's behind the scene. You don't know what's behind the vein, what's behind that partition was behind the raid, then and seen the enemy of the unseen something may have maybe you're not meant to happen to you, but because of you, Allah subhanho wa Taala he warded off.

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

Also my brothers and sisters under etiquette into making,

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

like I said,

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

he says three things. Number one, either Allah would answer you,

00:13:51--> 00:13:57

or Allah who would often evil that was meant to happen to you, or number three, as reported by

00:13:59--> 00:14:38

the other men would be standing before Allah Subhana and the Day of Judgment. And then he will see these mountains and mountains of hierarchy, the mountains of good and things that he hasn't done, or she hasn't done, as your ally did not do all this is not as good. I didn't know all this. Otherwise, yes, I don't I know. But remember, they so and so you have made the law. You have invoked me, you have supplicated me, I don't give you what you want it. I have replaced it with this. And then the man will say Oh Allah, I wish you have not responded or you haven't answered any of my. When the man sees what Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has prepared for him in the Day of Judgment. That person will

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

say, Oh, I wish that none of my dad would accept it. Because Allah will compensate him with something that is better. Allah would compensate you with something that actually things that I have never seen things of hearts. I've never felt things that is I've never heard of that when you replace it with with things from Zhanna. So things could happen. Rest assured you make the most

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

Hannah was on the spot or Allah subhana wa tada will order some evil that was meant to happen to you or Allah subhana wa tada will replace it with something better in general in sha Allah who taharah

00:15:14--> 00:15:32

eticketing making up as an avant fidra do not oppress yourself into meaning once Oppression into don't do any oppression. What does that mean? Chef? Okay, good question my dear viewers, it means for instance,

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

a person may say,

00:15:37--> 00:15:44

all Allah make me a profit. This is oppression in the economic profit. Also,

00:15:45--> 00:15:50

never doubt the DA never doubt the DA

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

which means

00:15:53--> 00:16:10

that as the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says, you know, somebody who does a DA he's oblivious, this is narrated, in fact, right in the meeting he said, they put it by to the MIDI and the rate of the boy oh boy, a lot of yellow and who Allah that the Prophet Allah says, Allah Azza wa

00:16:11--> 00:16:20

Jalla wa ala namaha as a woman Calvin Rafi lay the profit alley circumstances are called upon Allah invoke Allah subhana wa tada

00:16:24--> 00:17:04

surely Allah will answer you. And then the Prophet says And mind you that Allah does not and will not answer coming from oblivious hearts oblivious heart, somebody who makes the law and then he is not is not present. He makes the and then he says I'm just gonna make law I know I know Allah won't give it to me but you know what, I'm just gonna make it there anyways, that Allah answered the door. If you have any doubt that alone as you die, then Allah will not answer the DA that's why the promises just make the rest assured that Allah subhana wa tada would answer it, remember, him says, Allah would answer it, or three things or you have you know, Allah would hold off some evil that was

00:17:04--> 00:17:34

meant to happen to you or less of Han Allah will restore or replace it for something better in general. But again, when you make it up, don't be don't have any doubts. Because if you have any doubt, or your heart is oblivious, you know, did you make it and then you look at your hands you looking at your you know, maybe you're doing something like this, you're looking at your fingers, you shaking hands with people that are going to smile, and then you go back in your door again, and then I don't know going back to the this is not

00:17:35--> 00:18:19

everywhere. Your mind is all scattered everywhere. Yeah, focus concentrating. Because Who are you talking to? Who are you? Who are you replicating and invoking invoking Allah subhanho wa Tada. So Allah deserves your concentration, because this is something that you're asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for so don't doubt the law. Also my brothers and sisters, when you're making that see the best times to make like you know, now you fasting when somebody is fasting or before breaking the fast the DA is Mr. Jab, which will add that and if karma is Mr. Jab if between the the call of the prayer and between you know the the karma when the Imam cause people to come and pray in between

00:18:19--> 00:18:36

those you know, that break between the or that pass between, you know, the ad and and the karma. That is Mr. Jab. On the day of Friday, I had an NDA said between us and Margaret, there's an hour went by if somebody wants to make Allah subhana wa Taala would answer that in your,

00:18:37--> 00:18:49

in your sujood when you make in Suzhou, the prophet Allah circumstances in this hurry is narrated by Oba ecosummit. But the prophet Allah Sutras, as you start to see them says that the closest person

00:18:51--> 00:18:51

to an

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

hour was prohibited from reciting the Quran. In during the loco or during

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

the movie he

00:19:03--> 00:19:17

forced me to feed. The Prophet Allah says and says, I was prevented from reciting the Quran in Morocco, nor in the Suzhou and then he says, In the record of the movie here, you know, glorify the Lord in your locker and then you should

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

make a lots of that when you salute because that's the closest you can get to Allah subhana wa tada as the Prophet item says, Is during your salute, also the oppressed if you feel like you've been oppressed, and we are the Muslims, really no, we really are transgressed and oppressed, then the daughter of the oppressed is also Mr. Jab, the daughter of the traveller is also Mr. Jab is also a granted the daughter of a woman who is in fact, you know, delivering during birth driveling you know, delivering, you know, the during during bird like when she's in labor, she makes up her dies, Mr. Jeff, and they put it by him. And as soon as it's a very sound heavy, you know, as the Prophet

And then women wearing you know their clothing and then they go and then stand in this mountain. And they're all making the heart to Allah subhanho wa Taala narrated by

00:20:40--> 00:21:03

hate me and decided to label him as the Prophet Elisa to slim says that Allah subhanho wa Taala calls the angels and he says all my angels, what brought my people here you know in detail of what brought them here. And then and then the angels they said the other day came seeking your pleasure seeking your forgiveness. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says all my angels are shadow come.

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

You are my witness, you are the witness be witness all my angels I have forgiven and I will forgive all of them.
