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

When

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

it's mercy

00:00:34--> 00:01:19

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah merry brothers and sisters and my viewers, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Ricardo z and I welcome you back into another episode of reflections of Ramadan. Today's topic is about something that is very, very, very crucial, something that has been made incumbent on us Muslims, something called a bad worship, the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well Mahalo to Jin Hwan in in early Abu I have created the incident the Djinn, solely to worship me, then what is worship? Why do we worship Allah Subhana Allah tada?

00:01:21--> 00:01:40

What kinds of worship out there? What are the categories and worship? So these are some of the questions in sha Allah that we'll be trying to talk about within this episode in sha Allah tada worship. What does it mean a bad What does it mean? A bag that is smooth jammy liquidity, mayorship, bajo la jolla, la,

00:01:41--> 00:01:49

la la la la la pena, a bed that has been defined by entertainment. And he says, it is a comprehensive term

00:01:50--> 00:02:19

that comprises everything that Allah subhana wa Taala loves and approves of from the apparent and hidden sayings and deeds. Some people think that the fact that they are fasting right now is just a bad. Yes, there is a better, but there's so many types of a better, there's so many categories of a better, and that's what we're going to talk about in Sharla hotellet. So that we can explain and how to, in fact, leverage this month bliss of the month of Ramadan.

00:02:20--> 00:02:34

For instance, you can really increase your bank accounts of good deeds with so many trivial acts, so many very simple acts. For instance, the prophet Mohammed Ali sought to sell me says

00:02:35--> 00:02:49

it is held in this headquarters by a Muslim and narrated by so when he says Allah His salatu wa sallam in the Muslim app, either in the Muslim either wahama lead less than a few qualifications.

00:02:50--> 00:03:20

The Prophet Allah is sad to see them says when a Muslims goes to visit another Muslim, when a Muslim goes to visit another Muslim, Allah subhanho wa Taala will prepare some sort of accommodation for that person in Jannah. So that person will be in that accommodation in general until that person goes back home. So the fact that the fact that you just chose to visit your brother Muslim or sister muslimah for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhana wa tada

00:03:21--> 00:04:09

builds an accommodation and mentioned for you in general horrify for potential Jenna the Prophet Mohammed Elisa Toussaint also says in this hi teleported by Timothy and also reported by Abu Dawood, narrated by Ali about the Allahu anhu wa he says Elisa said mermin Muslim in a Muslim and would Wotton in Salalah. He said, Ronan Alfa Malik mean Muslim in a Muslim in any famous illa karateka somebody said Runa from Allah, the Prophet Muhammad Ali so to say them he says and this helped narrated by alley when a Muslim goes to visit a brother of Muslim 70 in the morning 70,000 angels would be making the effort that Muslim for that person and you know the out of the angels granted

00:04:10--> 00:04:37

Allah just because the fact that you chose to go visit somebody else for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the morning 70,000 agents will be making the app for you. And likewise the province is when a Muslim goes to visit another Muslim you know, a person goes to visit another person in the evening also 70,000 angels will be making the after that person until that person goes back home. very trivial act yet very, very

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

beneficial and beloved in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala also the Prophet Mohammed and his Sufism says in this head reported by Muslim this hadith is reported by Muslim narrated by Abu hurayrah the Prophet Muhammad Ali Sufism says in this height which is good to see, it's hard to see that the Prophet Mohammed Allah Sufism says that Allah Subhana

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Whatever it says, You have been Adam.

00:05:03--> 00:05:47

Adam all son of Adam, Allah Subhana Allah says yeah yeah Adam all sudden of Adam, I got sick and you did not visit me. And then the son of Adam says Allah, how can you get sick? Well Antara Buddha enemy and you, you are the Lord of the of the worlds. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, My servants so on so was sick, and I was with him. Had you visited him? You'd have found me there with him. Oh, yeah, Adam, oh, son of Adam. I was hungry and he didn't feed me. Decided isn't Muslim. So it sound as the man would say, No, there was no Allah, how can you get angry? Well, I'm terrible. And I mean, and you are the Lord of the worlds How can you get hangry and then Allah subhana wa tada

00:05:47--> 00:06:14

says, My servants, so and so was hangry had you, you know, fed him, you would have found that in the Day of Judgment, you'd have found the, the fruit of that in for Allah subhanho wa Taala, whatever he's preparing for you in genetic, Allah also Allah Subhana Allah says, Oh, my servant, I needed clothing and he did not close to me and then Allah and then the servant says, Well, how can I close the mean?

00:06:15--> 00:06:45

And you are the Lord of the worlds. And then Allah Subhana Allah says that my servant needed clothes, he was naked he needed clothing, had you provided him with some clothes, you would have found that Yeah, and he in the heat of the day of judgment. So these are some some trivial acts. If you were to do them, this will increase your bank account of good deeds in multiple. Let me share with you some more. The Prophet Mohammed Ali sathasivam says in this Hadith,

00:06:46--> 00:07:21

and this had it is narrated by others ugly Ferrari. And this hate is the portal. Hey, Ben, the prophet Mohammed Ali sort of says, the best to move forward. GRC casada Alta Vista, McAfee Oh, geez. Oh, God. casada a smile in the face of your brother is charity, just a smile in the face of your Muslim brother. Just a smile in the face of your wife of your spouse is also considered charity. And you don't have money to give charity? Why don't you show smile? What does it cost you to really show smile right now.

00:07:22--> 00:08:04

I just want to do a better. I want you to get some some of just smiling in the face. You may be saying Well, I'm just smiling the feet to the TV and if somebody looks at me, they may think I'm crazy. Not here not that you really but you know, you're smiling in the face of you know your brother. So the Prophet Mohammed it says with him says a smile in the face of your spouse is charity is subaqua. Again, just very trivial just to show your smile coming from your heart, a smile coming really from your heart, you know, and that's a form of a bad it's charity. It's a form of rebel, the prophet Mohammed Elissa to sell them says and this head is the portrait by Macario Bukhari and

00:08:04--> 00:08:58

Muslim he says the head is narrated by a boho Laila kulu sulamani Adam Allah He sadhaka every joint son of Adam has to pay you know, so that has to be charity for every joint like this is joint these are joints right? These are all joint joint. These are joint you know, your your neck, you know, these are old joint shoulders, your feet joint. So we have 360 joints in our body. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says that you have to pay 360 sadaqa per day, once the copper join and the one charity per joint and then there was the hobbies the comparisons Yasukawa How can we pay 360 in order to have more dollars or euros or pounds? How can I pay that much you know per day, I can

00:08:58--> 00:09:18

afford to pay $260 per day for a soda for my for my joints. And then the Prophet Mohammed Ali said to me says the best some of you will Jackie soda, you know smile in the face of your brother sadaqa Subhana Allah sadaqa Al Hamdulillah sadaqa La Ilaha Illa sadaqa Allahu Akbar sadaqa

00:09:20--> 00:09:20

sadaqa

00:09:22--> 00:09:53

sadaqa a step towards the masjid sadaqa helping the needy helping the poor sadaqa these are all very you know easy stuff that you can do yet are very beloved in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then also increase your bank account of good deeds in the south. You know when you meet and you send before Allah subhanho wa Taala very simple ways to really become closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet Mohammed Salim also says it is highly reported by Bukhari and Muslim.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

The hell it is also narrated by Abu hurayrah he says Elisa to Sudan about helping the needy

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

And the widow he says, I say Allah, Allah.

00:10:05--> 00:10:12

Allah Allah Allah will miskeen Cal Mujahid feasability on call him will be layli. Asahi movie nah Ha.

00:10:13--> 00:11:03

He says a say an armada, the one who takes care of the widow and the one who helps the needy and the poor. You just like the one Lucia hit feasibility lead on who's struggling in the path in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala call him will be late. You know, the one who's standing imagine somebody standing the whole night in prayer was saw a movie in the heart and he spent the whole day you know, fasting so somebody struggling the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala spending the whole night. I know doing praying for Allah subhanho wa Taala and spending the whole day fasting the all this equate to the one who sponsors a widow and help miskeen and the needy and the poor, very simple. inshallah

00:11:03--> 00:11:48

tada if you can. The Prophet Mohammed Elisa to Sudan also says in this Muslim narrated by Aveda Wolfie booderee sada wolfi booderee haidakhan sadaqah in your intimacy with your spouse, the prophet Mohammed added, Sufism says that you will gain sadaqa you will gain charity. And then the Sahaba said the Allah so Allah, how can that happen? A man is enjoying himself with his spouse and intimacy. And then he will get set up, you will get a sense for it just like a bat, just like your brain, just like you're giving charity. And then the Prophet says yes, yes. Imagine if he was to do it. And the Prophet says, if that person was to do it hard on me and he was too if he was to indulge

00:11:48--> 00:11:52

in, in fornication, wouldn't he be getting so yet?

00:11:54--> 00:12:03

Like haram? wouldn't he be getting bad deeds for that act? The Sahaba said, Yes, yeah, Rasul Allah, and then the provinces Like wise, if he was to do it in Thailand, he would be getting hassled?

00:12:04--> 00:12:09

Yes. What law? Yes. So just like look at the son of the Prophet, Mohammed Salah

00:12:11--> 00:12:51

with his spouse, he would go, when he first met it had Asia or Asia, or, or the other, meaning the mothers of the believers as the son of the Prophet Mohammed or Sudan, he would go to his wife, he would put his hand on her forehead, about the law. And then he would decide to do a lemania Sokka hirahara measure but it was becoming, shall we? How shall we measure with a, you know, he will bring in some milk and then he would give her you know, that milk to drink and he would drink from the same cup or a softer Scimitar? So now, and then you would bring you maybe a cup of tea, or maybe a date. So you would have a bite you would have and then have your spouse have a bite? And then and

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

then you would pray to like how would your spouse

00:13:02--> 00:13:39

Manhattan meaning the mothers of the believers, as the son of the Prophet Muhammad is a sedan, he would go to his wife, he would put his hand on her forehead, about the law, and then he would decide to do a lemania Sokka Hara Hara Mashable era was becoming, shall we measure theory, you know, he will bring in some milk and then he would give her you know, that milk to drink it and he would drink from the same cup, or as opposed to me. And then he would bring you maybe a couple of, or maybe a date, so you would have a bite you would have and then have your spouse have a bite. And then and then you would pray tilaka with your spouse, this is the night of the wedding, you're not

00:13:39--> 00:13:50

after the after your wedding after your body then you go back and then you know you were meeting your wife for the first time. There are certain etiquettes there certain certain that the Prophet assistant has taught us

00:13:52--> 00:14:31

and then you pray with her, you know, and then you sit with her with your spouse and then you talk is that oh has a net and then before intimacy the Prophet Mohammed Iser Salim used to say this beautiful Bismillah Allahu Majid Nibbana shapen was in a panorama Roxanna Oh Allah Bismillah In the name of Allah Bismillah always you start anything that you do you know you start with Bismillah O Allah prevent us from the Shaitaan and prevent the shaitaan from anything that you were to bless us with and Allah subhana wa tada preferences if allow us to bless them with a with a son or daughter that night. The shaitan would not harm that you know that baby Hey bad right there, very simple,

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

very nice. So, these are some of some illustrations or examples of how you can perform a better and get hesa net from Allah subhana wa tada specially remember in this type of in this in this blessed month, anything that you do is in fact multiplied in multi fold in really multi fold. Why because this is the bless of the month of Ramadan and the Prophet Mohammed Elissa to Sarah. In fact,

He showed us also the Quran, Allah subhana wa Taala showed us in many is

00:15:08--> 00:15:49

the different types of Eva. Because you can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your brain, you can worship Allah subhana wa tada with your heart you can worship Allah subhana wa tada with your physical faculties none. So let me give you some examples you can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your brain, how Paul during the creation of Allah subhana wa tada just sitting outside for instance, boundary, you know looking at this beautiful creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then and then just looking at maybe you know listening to this beautiful, the beautiful song of the of the birds or looking at the sky and looking at the clouds moving and looking at the trees and

00:15:49--> 00:16:12

You know, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in solid there yet a a number 21 would fill out the area to do more cleaning. What we unfussy Come fly too soon.

00:16:13--> 00:16:29

Patience is the worship of the heart certainty honesty, sincerity is that all worship of the heart being pleased with Allah subhana wa tada as your Lord is his worship of the heart so you can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your brain, you can worship Allah subhana wa tada with your heart, you can worship Allah subhana wa tada also with your physical faculties, for instance,

00:17:36--> 00:17:48

how well I can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with my eyes how? Well simple looking at the Quran is the worship of the eyes.

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

Just looking at the

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

looking at the Kaaba, when you're there is the worship of the eyes,

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

looking at your spouse,

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

it's a worship of the eyes

00:18:04--> 00:18:16

looking at her or looking at him, saying, I'm the luckiest man on earth. You don't even have to say but just looking at your spouse and and then just praising Allah subhana wa Tada. I'm so lucky.

00:18:18--> 00:18:23

It's a worship of the eyes, looking at your father, looking at your mother.

00:18:25--> 00:18:48

Inside, you know, in your heart, you're praising your, you know, and thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala of this blessing of this Hebrew of this gift, the gift of your parents. It's worship of the eyes, looking at your children playing just looking at them there and then praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, who has blessed you Allah had with the Heba of your children, is also a worship of the eyes.

00:18:50--> 00:19:15

You can also worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your tongue. How can you wish if Allah subhana wa at your tongue right now? I'm worshiping Allah with my Tonk giving a lecture, enjoying good, forbidding evil is the worship of the tongue. Say Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allahu Akbar, La La quwata illa let you know, remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala worship of the tongue

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

reciting the Quran is worship of the tongue.

00:19:21--> 00:19:59

Isn't it? So, these are so many things that you can do, you know, with your physical faculties also, you know the tongue. How about, for instance, worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala would your ears Yes, you can worship Allah with your ears, how you can worship Allah Subhana Allah said it with your ears by listening to the Quran, listening to your parents, listening to a lecture to benefit from not listening to Reba and vema not listening to backbiting is also worship of the of the ears. You wish you weren't allowed your ears you refrain from listening to haraam.

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

you refrain from listening to music for instance. Yes, the old the mme, the consensus of all the Madame Abu hanifa Imam, Malik, a Chevy, Mr. Mohammed, they all made that consensus, they have forbidden it they have prohibited elvina which in fact was prohibited even before

00:20:25--> 00:20:36

was prohibited. Even before alcohol was prohibited. I was in a singing and music was made prohibited in Islam before alcohol. And some people don't know that.

00:20:38--> 00:21:04

So instead, you know what, why don't you fill your heart with, you know, listen to the kurama Allahu alayhi wa Allah he, you know, this is you know, you cannot I'm telling you sisters brothers, my dear viewers, if you want really to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, but the way to get closer to him subhanho wa Taala There is nothing better than reciting his words and listening to his words of Hannah. Nothing.

00:21:05--> 00:21:35

Nothing better than listening to the Quran and listen to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will get you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala calama law, LLB degree later in Nakuru Yes, indeed, it is what the, the remembrance of Allah that hearts find ease. Listen to kurama law, listen to the words of Allah subhana wa tada reciting the Quran Allah reciting, and meditating when you decide to and don't just reset, and

00:21:38--> 00:21:51

then it didn't even touch you. If you must not allow us to say check your heart In these instances, check your heart when you have listened to. And when you have a certain energy, if your heart does not move, you've got a problem with your heart.

00:21:53--> 00:22:32

Really, when you listen and have a center and then you feel like your heart is not moving. Then there's definitely a problem with the heart also, he says when you are in the in the gathering of him and listening to a beautiful lecture and if your heart does not move, he says there is may be a problem with your heart and also in terms of isolation when you by yourself just trying to ponder the question of Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, If still your heart does not move, maybe your heart is dead. Really? Maybe you've got a dead heart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, bless you and soften your heart.

00:22:33--> 00:22:52

Now, listen to the listening to carambola reciting, reciting the Kalam Allah subhanho wa Taala will get you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala you can worship Allah subhana wa tada by you know again, your your eyes, by your your ears, your tongue, your hands,

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

helping one another.

00:22:56--> 00:23:37

helping somebody shaking the hand of your Muslim brother said Mr. alikum assisted assists are shaking her hand with with his sister, a brother shaking hands with his brother, I said Mr. Aleykum, it's worship of Allah subhana wa tada using your hands you have been, you know, the poor, the needy or helping somebody cross the street helping a blind person you know, these are all the worship of the hand, making thicker with your hands, you know, upon lots of hand lots of Hamlet, all these parts will witness for you on the Day of Judgment, none worshiping Allah with your feet. How can I worship Allah with my feet, walking to the masjid walk into help somebody you know the needy the

00:23:37--> 00:24:02

poor walk in to help my parents walk into help or to serve the community walk into volunteer, you know, running, exercising with the intention to come close and so they can do more than a better for the sake of Allah exercising so that I can feel better and do more. Because the Prophet Muhammad Allah Sufism says it is in fact an amino kawi higher on

00:24:04--> 00:24:05

the Wolfie Polina

00:24:06--> 00:24:45

and what means a strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, but they're both they're both good. They both know this is good in both of the weak and the strong believer but the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala why yeah they try it if you don't exercise well I feel sorry for you do exercise, you will feel the change in your life. Really. You know when you are not just walking or jogging or exercising or whatnot, you will feel that change you feel like you're you know you're up to do more more a better for the sake of Allah subhana wa you feel fresh, you stand up you know pmla PMA will become easy to help you really you know, so this

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

is again, a worship of Allah subhana wa tada with your feet. So these are some types of you know, all different categories of worship. We gave you some examples and illustrations and how you can worship Allah subhana wa Tada. Some differences or different

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

The types of all kinds of worship you can worship Allah subhanho did you would your brain would your heart would your physical faculties and inshallah hota Allah. The next question is, how can they worship Allah subhanaw taala and who is Allah subhanho wa Taala and why should they worship Allah subhana wa tada I will talk about these in sha Allah tada after the break is that Kamala Harris buck Luffy come was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
