Islam, Iman & Iá¸¥san: The á¸¤adith of Jibril Part 3/4 – Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 19th February 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
Rahman AR Dr. Medina we love that woman you're grateful for her the

and later added Ibrahim Ibrahim

respective listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We gather for the third and final part of
my commentary on the belief of God
as related by Muslim in his he, which happens to be his very first idea in his book.
Just to repeat the Hadees from human skin, I relate with him uninterrupted and continuous chaining from me to Lima Muslims of La
tarjeta de la hora
being the man who in the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Yeoman is dollar and enough should either be out of the ARB should be disallowed to shut up. Now you're on a for what I added.
The jealousy in Libya sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first take it out, but they are dark Athenian. They recording human have been in the early
part of a sort of life is in the library who was selling them in Islam and
in law, what animal human that was sold in law, to Bemis on Earth, it has occurred or what the sooner
or later in the day used to be our
qualifier jnana who is who is the co author of a split in the early email on an older woman are eager to hear wakatobi he or sorry, he will tell me
what took me level. He was shortly all of a sudden, all of a sudden, nearly
on top of the law Kanika da, da da, da.

All of us here in America are unintelligent, amateur or better. However.
policy for the media to call the minister in a law suit. Part of in the whole Djibouti attack we are limo codina partners in the Mahabharata
that's the heavy from a Muslim. Muslim Ramallah relates it from
the library who said says that once we were seated with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day
a man appeared,
wearing very white clothes, extremely white clothes of extremely black hair, there was no sign of journeying on him, and nor did any of us recognize it. So he came and he sat down before the messenger salon model and he was sent them and attached his knees to the knees of the message. Some A lot of it was sent to me then placed his hands on his thumb.
Then he said, Oh, Mohammed, inform me or tell me about Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam is that you testify that there is no god except law. And that
is a messenger of Allah.
And that you establish your gifts
that you fast the month of Ramadan and that you perform the mission.
scrimmage of the house if you are able to find a path to it.
So the man said, You have spoken correctly or the truth.
So a lot of the law says that we marveled at him that he asks the messenger some law it will send them and then
ratifies the answer the messenger some of the law.
So the men then said, Tell me about email.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that you believe in Allah,
and his angels and his box and his messengers, and in the final day, and that you believe in.
Both it's good and it's bad.
So the man said, You're spoken correctly. He then said, Tell me about so. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
that you were excellent is that you worship Allah.
As though you see.
And if you do not see him,
then indeed he sees he.
The man then said, Tell me about the final hour. So the problem is a lot of them said that the woman who is being questioned has no more knowledge of it when the questioner himself.
So the man said, Tell me about it. So
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that you will see the male giving birth to her maps,
and that you will see
herds herders of flocks, competing with each other in buildings.
The normal de la horn said that the men left and I waited for a while
then the profits of the love writing was seldom said to me or do you know who
the questioner was? So I said Allah, His Messenger, some of the love and evil said no best.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, he was God who came to teach your religion.
I've commented on
almost two thirds of the headings
or most of the headings in the past two weeks, and the
sentence where we ended was where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in response to the question What is the man replied by saying that you believe in Allah and in the phone, in the angels and the books in his books and his messengers, and in the final day and let you believe in,
in fates premium predestiny.
Both it's good and it's bad.
So the man said, You spoke the truth, you spell color, correct.
This is where we left off.
as we've learned in other narrations of this heavy because the Arabic and the translation that I've just given you is the wording of Eman Muslim, radicular here and eveness. So he, but the same had it's been narrated by other authors and there are variations, not variations, but additional wording.
therefore we learn to be Allahu
alayhi salam when he
said that, when he when he asked about elearn, and prophets and the law of Islam gave him the reply. One further thing he said was, so if I believe in these things, have I believed Am I a mcminn? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yes, so the Judean said, Yes, you've spoken the truth. Yes, welcome correctly. Again, this habit of your lover who found this to be very strange,
to the extent of saying to each other that we've never seen a person like him. This is he asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then ratifies and attests to the answer of the messenger, as though he knows more than the messenger. And as though he is actually teaching the Messenger of Allah and
then after having questioned him about
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was questioned by Djibouti with the words for a millionaire and so on. So tell me about
now before I continue with this Allow me to explain something about Islam and EMA, which I haven't explained yet. Which is that
these two words Islam and email
and their derivatives such as Muslim and Muslim,
or Muslim on
it as plural.
These words are often interchangeably used. So when we say Muslim woman, we mean when we say mcminn men, we mean Muslim. When we say Islam, we mean a man and vice versa. So, is it correct?
To interchangeably use these words? And are these synonymous Islam and Muslim and mcminn mins and Muslims
and all the other derivatives of Islam and EMA?
The simple answer is
that in common use,
yes, they are synonymous and they can be interchangeably used.
and technically speaking, and when you make a very close study of both words, and their true and correct me,
that is actually there are actually some subtle differences between Islam and EMA.
And this is very clear, this is very evident when the two words are used together. So if someone uses the word Islam in isolation, we normally take the word to refer to both Islam and email. If someone uses the word email in isolation, again, we take the word to refer to both Islam and Iran. But if ever the two words are used to gather,
it shouldn't seem to be regarded as mere repetition. But there is a subtle difference between the two. And this is clear in the arm and in the head.
and what is the difference? The difference is simply as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself explained Djibouti.
He knew what the amps as well, and who knew
what the who actually knew what the answers were to his questions. The first question he asked in this duration of a Muslim is what Tell me about Islam.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained the Islam to him. He then said, Tell me about email.
And both answers reflect something
which is very clear that Islam is outward religion.
Being Islam being submission
simply means to submit externally
and then he man is a grade higher than Islam.
It reflects true belief in the heart.
And it's to do with one's very inner being. It doesn't just refer to a parent outward submission.
Islam is easier than email.
True believe true email in all its varying degrees is much harder than simply performing a parent rituals and acts of worship.
And this is very evident from a verse of sort of Rajasthan which Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna speaks about some Bedouin, who came, who claimed to be meaning to have to have face.
So, a lot of quotes from
Airman Oldham took me know what I can do.
What am I
the batterman said
we have believed now
in English as well when we use the word faith and belief
Again, they are synonymous and interchangeable. But
let's concentrate not only English translation but the actual wording of the Arabic. So the Bedouin said, Amanda, we have believed in that we have email.
So Allah said say to the law messenger of Allah Lim took me you have not believed you have not embraced email
when I can who rather say a slim now we have embraced Islam we have submitted
What am I holding email, if you will become an email has not yet entered your hearts. Now these Bedouin weren't hypocrites.
Because a lot immediately thereafter saves
waiting to theory law what a pseudo
but if you obey Allah His Messenger
law you let come in America law will not reduce allow will not detract or deprive you of any of your deeds. So what these verses show is that these better one was simply
newcomers to Islam who made a sudden claim about being mcmann and having any man a grade higher than Islam, which is apparent submission. So Allah correct,
that you have Yes, you have submitted,
you are Muslim.
You have embraced Islam apparently.
But Allah categorically says that he man has not yet entered your heart. So the email that Allah has denied
as having not having entered their heart, that man isn't about simple Islam or simple faith, or the articles of faith, without which there wouldn't be considered Muslim or believers anyway. But the man which is denying as having entered their hands, is that higher grade of any man which is deep and profound belief,
which only comes late.
So, these verses clearly show
one's journey in Islam in faith in religion begins with apparent outward submission.
And that outward submission, hopefully, eventually, will lead to a reflection of deep, profound interface.
And that interface is a grade much higher than a parent submission.
This is why every Muslim is not necessarily a mock man.
Even the hypocrites were apparently Muslim, they would come to the masjid of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They will pray Some are in congregation. They spoke religion. They sat in the company of the messenger some of the law it was some of them. They hovered around him at times. They participated in his gatherings, they listen to his words. They visit frequently, the masjid they prayed there so now
they spoke in religious terms. They repeatedly mentioned the name of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, all for public consumption. But this is what apparent external Islam and submission was. Yet their hearts. Were not just devoid of faith but averse to faith.
And imagine that Allah subhanho wa Taala and essays of the Bedouin,
who actually saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who embraced Islam,
but who were newcomers and very weak in their faith.
A lot actually says on them. You have become Muslim, and submitted apparently, but the man has not yet entered your email has not yet entered your heart. So in contrast to the bed oven at the blessed time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If Allah denies that he man true email has yet to he has not has entered their heart and says it has not yet entered your heart. Imagine what our position has been
deprived of the blessings
Have a company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam distinct from him from his time deprived of good company.
How could we even begin to compare with those better?
And yet Allah says of them. You have submitted apparently and apparently you're all Muslim.
But Eman has not yet.
So Islam is relatively simple relative embossing it's this simple, but for a person to embrace Islam, to be born a Muslim and then begin observe observing religion, practicing religion, apparent Islam is relatively simple.
To pray too fast to give in charity, to prevent the masjid.
The Bedouin did it the hypocrites did it at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And yet Allah denied
having entered the house, and restricted their faith to apparent submission, and apparent Islam.
So Islam is relatively easy compared to true English.
And it's a grade much higher, one has to really climb the ladder.
really perfect that external submission that external Islam, for that inner ego to be true
and external Islam has a huge impact on one's in
the way in which we praise Allah, the way in which we perform our
external purity reflects on internal periods.
External submission reflects on inner submission. This is why Salah should be performed with coo coo.
the humility and the submission of one's external limbs, who do means the humility and the submission of one's heart
in a submission.
So true Salah
consists of both external submission in a submission external humility in a humanity. This is why when we stand before, first of all, even before Salah will even perform
our will to should be complete, good.
for external purity leads to interference, we may not understand it, but we've heard repeatedly as I've explained from different methods that famous have either been, let's say, enrich the profits of the lover and is related to the profits and the lover and even send them prayed federal salah
and he was experiencing difficulty in his in his dilemma in front of some influential scholar after Salah he said 10 rounds of what is it with me? Why is it that I managed when as a reporter and why is it that I'm struggling with the foreigner
even though he was a messenger of Allah. And then he gave the reason he said some of you do not complete and make good and perfect your will when you come. Therefore whenever you come to Allah, make sure that you perfect and make good yodel
lack of perfection in their will do. That's not just an impact on their inner on themselves. But it actually had an impact on the subtle, subtle muscle alayhi wa sallam. That's what he couldn't he was struggling with the portal. So our lack of external periods, it doesn't just impact on our own interference, he actually impacts on other people.
We may not understand it today, there may come a time when we will begin to.
it's no more purity leads to interference. External submission insula leads to in submission.
We should be mindful of how we do how we pray.
And just like we learned previously, in one of the answers given by the sword of lust and the love of it,
verbal testimony of
Allah and His Messenger son the law it was being God and being the messenger respectively and along with the establishing of salah and giving and the fasting in the month of Ramadan Hajj.
province under law already has moderation also mentioned three other things which aren't what's Islam, that you perform the aroma
and that you do have a whistle of Janab of major impurity
and that you make good and complete your.
So, making good your will do making complete your hosts and observing and being mindful of external purity is actually part of Islam. This in itself will lead to in an email. This is why one of the virtues is to remain in a constant state of boredom. Even if a person has doesn't have to praise Allah, to remain in a constant state of boredom
below the alarm used to frequently do will do and every time he did will do what would he do is to pray to the Quran.
Salah after will do this is known as the here to do or refer to advise them Allah.
What does this lead him achieving? Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him Oh Billa what do you do that I hear your footsteps
and this is the thing which he pointed out.
So, remaining constantly in a state of will do is a noble thing.
External purity leads into purity external submission leads to innocent
and until we do not make good complete and perfect our external acts of purity of prayer of pilgrimage of charity of fasting.
These things will not lead to in
every altar worship should ultimately lead to
Allah says in the site other than heroin fascia you will lose prayer meaning Salah leads to
a salon prevents fracture immorality. Needless to say,
we should question ourselves, we pray five times a day. We've been doing it for years. If our Salah does not lead, or does not prevent immorality in decency and sin in our own character and lives, then is the Salah achieving its purpose is it fulfilling its objective? Its is isn't doing its role? If not then why?
Allah says about firstly.
Yeah, you're Latina. munakata Very cool. Cmo kamakoti. Public Land.
We give many reasons for fasting that it creates sympathy, it creates awareness, awareness. It makes us sympathize with those who are less fortunate. It makes us experience hunger creates discipline, all sorts. Allah in the Quran only mentions one reason for fasting, which is that it creates
an aqua means God awareness, the awareness of the last panel with the other awareness of the law, consciousness of them.
Now we've been fasting every day for the whole month of Ramadan for years.
strange that may seem it's a known fact that even those who don't normally pray Salah, they still fast in the month of Ramadan. So to the degree of actually fasting even in the month but not pray. So then fast throughout the day, but they won't pray. And we've seen that.
So people are mindful of the fast. So, so many of us fast every day of Ramadan. We've been doing it for years, even decades. And yet we should question ourselves has this external observance of the fast created inadequate
as it if it hasn't, why isn't our fast fulfilling it's well
zeca we give the car once a year is supposed to last a is about as Whitman and Wiley who saw the hero
the Messenger of Allah
take from them from their wealth, such such such charity
to the hero, the team
which purifies them
and through which you purify through which unit we should ask ourselves
We give the car we give chancy.
Charity isn't just meant to purify our wealth.
It's supposed to purify us, our minds, our characters, our hearts. Now, again, we give them we give something we give in charity. Has that distribution of charity, that donation
of all these years has it ever,
not just purified our wealth but purified our inner character and purify our hearts? Has it? If it hasn't, if our charity does not lead to purification, and we should question ourselves, what is it about my charity, that it's not fulfilling its role.
So all these external acts of worship
are supposed to lead to something and in a reality.
And if they don't, we should be questioning our observance, our method, our manner of doing these things.
If they are done properly, they will lead to an inner reality that will actually lead to a transformation of one's character.
So Islam is relatively easy. apparent Salah is relatively easy.
Giving in Zika, given Zika is relatively easy. Fasting is relatively easy, relative in the sense that the apparent act is easy. But doing it in such a way that it leads to an inner reality is much, much harder. And that's what we should be aiming for.
In fact, we should be fearful.
Imam Bukhari and Muslim and others all related
from Saudi Arabia or cos for the Allah, Who says
that, once a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam distributes and some wealth
and he gave to some, but he never gave to us. And one of the people who didn't give was someone who was very dear to me, in fact, of all these people who was a dearest
so this concern me so I went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I whispered
and I said to him, or messenger of Allah,
you gave others but you didn't give him
I see him as a mock me.
I see him as a mock.
So all the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in reply was
our Muslim, say, a Muslim, matar mcminn, but a Muslim.
So sad little the alarm fell silent. Then he says what I felt about this individual being deprived of the gift of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was from what it may mean that he didn't give to him.
What what types implications? So this overwhelmed me. So I again spoke to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I said, O Messenger of Allah, you didn't give to him by Allah see him as a model. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, as a Muslim,
so I felt sad.
And then after a short one, again, I was overwhelmed by my concern and my feelings about and so for the third time, I said to the Messenger of Allah, the Messenger of Allah, you gave others but you deprived him by a lie, see him as a mock. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Our Muslim,
say, a Muslim rather than a more.
Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drawing a distinction, because what he was teaching sericata the alarm is that you can't judge a person's interface.
You can only say about them what you know, that apparently he is a Muslim.
What his heart contains, and his level of email
that you cannot judge
and therefore you shouldn't testify to it.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said, Oh second
of the three times a septum. Oh sir.
I give to others.
And I deny others even though they are more beloved to me.
But I give to others simply out of the fear that if I do not give to them alarm a fling them flat faced into the fire.
What this means is that at that time
there were some individuals who had just embraced Islam who were
absolute newcomers. And they were not in the same position as the other Sahaba de la hora.
And it is highly possible. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a brilliant judge of character, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fear.
He didn't know for certain even though he was a messenger of Allah. He didn't know for certain, but he feared
that if I do not win over their hearts, and if I do not endear them to me, and draw them near,
I may lose them.
And therefore, in order to appease them to placate them to win over their hearts in order to soften their hearts, in order to endear them to him, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showered favors and blessings on them just to win over their hearts. Because he feared that if I don't do this, there's a danger that they may become disillusioned.
And this happened there was some Bedouin, who came to Medina who embraced Islam and then left
and they would go back to their people.
And they would wait for some good fortune and then after some time, they would say they would feel that look.
I've embraced Islam, but I'm not seeing any new wealth. I'm not we're not seeing any rain. We're not seeing a growth or an increase in our crops
or in our livestock. So this isn't a good religion.
And that's what Allah refers to when he says woman in nursing we would look
for in a slob who
were in Sabah to fit Newtonian cabana which he said adonia will, the alcohol Kusama being that they are of the people those who are on the edge.
They worship Allah on the edge. So it's good fortune meets him. He is content with it. But if any calamity or suffering befalls him, he flips on his face.
This he loses the world and he loses the the afterlife. This is the clear loss. So there were certain better and then there were also certain tribal leaders who felt entitled to privileges and special wealth from Rasulullah sallallahu it was sent them so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to sad Oh sir, and sometimes I give people and I deny others, even though the ones I deprive and deny. They are more dear and beloved to me than others. But give the others out of fear that if I don't allow me fling alive fling them flat on their faces in the fire of gentlemen. And this is actually explained further by
another Headey which gives this hadith of Sarah there'll be a lot more in context, and the other heavy hitters later from relativity it'll the alarm will be it'll be a lover who relates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me that
what do you have to say about joy? And who was during, during the alarm bells, that same men, that sad little the lover is referring to the one who wasn't given by the Messenger of Allah, and the one that he saw as a mcminn and not simply as a Muslim.
So without the alarm, it was untouched by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Buddha, what do you think of joy?
And he was a
driver of the alarm. So without the alarm said,
like the rest of his people, meaning he's a Mahajan, like the rest of them are herded on. They are no go pee.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said, and what do you think of such and such a person?
He was the one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave wealth
So, what are the lahori? Who said that?
He is one of the leaders of his people. He didn't say any more. He said he's one of the leaders of his people. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then cetera Buddha will know that
a world full
join is better than a world full of the likes of him. Join is better than a world full of the likes of him. So whether the alarm said Yasuda law, if that is what you think of him, meaning the leader of the people, if that is what you think of him, then you still do what you do with him, meaning you give him so much wealth, and yet you deprive Jane. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm merely trying to win over his heart.
So imagine, this was a European law, one of whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam testified that he is better than a world full of that particular leader that he gave What?
And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't give him any wealth. Two things we learn from him we learn so much more, but let me explain two things one,
indeed, wealth is no evidence of nobility.
The fact that Allah This is why I went last parameter with Allah says, I'm an admin aside from indicating the
minimum level higher than labor, whoever does good man or woman whilst they are believers, then surely we shall give them a beautiful life a good life, a good life does not mean the comforts of the web. It doesn't mean wealth.
A lot does not give wealth
necessarily, to those who do good deeds. In fact, Allah says in the Quran coolin namit la ilaha illa Arabic omaka Morocco become
one of our hero to
Dida, Allah says,
to each and who is he referring to, prior to this light explains in the Sora in the versus proceeding, that there are those who work for this world in life and there are those who work for the hereafter. But last as to each ie the worldly people in the world, those people whose gazes on the afterlife, to each we give, we give wealth, we give goods
we give of the bounty of your law, to these to the pious, to the sinful, to the good, to the evil, to the worldly, to the holy, to each we give the bounty of your law, and your the bounty of your Lord is not restricted from anyone.
See how we give preference and privilege to some over others.
is far greater in grades, and is far better in verge. So wealth is no sign of nobility. The fact that someone has wealth is no sign of acceptance in the sight of Allah. Allah gives to anyone, a lot deprives those whom He wills. And that's exactly what the prophets in the law it was send them dead. In fact, he did the very opposite, which is, he would give wealth to those who weren't so dear to him. And he would, he would actually withhold wealth from those who were the most beloved and dearest to him, because he wanted for them what he wanted for himself, which was simplicity, and worldliness
and devotion to the hereafter. So just as he denied himself, he denied those who are closest and dearest. Those who weren't so close those who weren't so dear. Those who he feared would flip would turn away. Those who felt more vulnerable in faith. Those the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showered with gifts and blessings. It's great lesson. The other lesson is that's Panama This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought of
for the love of him and yet he says to Sarah little your loved one and emphasizes to them, but don't say of him that he was a he's a Mothman just say here's a Muslim ummah. He says Jane is a world is better than a world full of the other purse. And yet he says to Sarah, that of your lover and don't say much
We say Muslim, don't say what men say Muslim. Don't say what men say Muslim three times. I don't testify to a man in his heart, you have no way of doing that. You can only judge by what's happened, which is apparently his.
And this was something very common
in the words of a pseudo loss of the lover it
was wrong with the alarm.
And then he was the uncle of
the law, and the brother in law of poverty law.
So, the law when he passed away,
prophets alarm it was some of them went to visit him.
What did he do? He actually stood over him,
bent over, kissed his forehead, and began to weep.
And because of the weeping over the soul, last a llama and even send them, the others went.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
testified that he left this world without the world having touched him and him having touched the web. But he did not touch the world and the world did not touch him.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam buried him. When he buried him he asked for a rock, and then he with the rock, he marks his grave. And he said he marked his grave, actually saying that when
members of my family shall pass away, I shall bury them next door.
That's who are thrown them with all of your loved one was in the view of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So when he was standing there, he was weeping the Sahaba weeping because of him he had bent over, kissed him on his forehead.
The off man with all of the love our insistence welcome from behind, and she said, I testify that you are in gentlemen. So the prophets A lot of it was from scolded and said to her, and what do you know that he isn't?
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not allow him anyone to testify about someone being a member of Gemma, a person of gender, or someone's in a state.
In fact, he would warn them, he would refute them, just as he did here. And that was a sort of loss of the lover.
So we should take a lesson from that we should fear for ourselves. When it comes to others we should also be mindful of
not lavishing undue praise of testifying that to their inner state, or swearing in the name of a law that they are meant from within that they are extremely pious from within that we do not.
If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't allow the Sahaba of the Allahu to do that for the Sahaba of the alarm. Then who are we to do it for our contemporaries, the people of today?
Much more can be said on this, that there is a clear difference between Islam what there are differences between Islam and email when they are used in this context, and both the login is that assume some of
them have drawn that distinction, but move on from here.
So the third thing was Djibouti alayhis. Salam said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me about
the province of Allah alayhi wa sallam said ehsaan is that you worship Allah as though you see
if you do not see him, when he sees you,
this is a third grade
This is much higher than email.
That is a slang then email then so
now what's SRM literally SRM just means to do good.
And this word is used throughout the course an arsenal arsenal.
Watson in which is those who do good those who have done good.
in the context of this video, what does it mean prophets of the law it was much plain to himself, Exxon is that you worship Allah as though you see him.
And if you do not see him, then he sees you. Now Allow me to explain the latter part of the sentence First, if you do not see him. This is actually an explanation to the first part of the sentence.
First of all,
No one can see a law.
In this way.
We cannot see a law in this way.
The vision of a last panel with Donna is reserved
for them won't be known in the hereafter.
In the world,
no one can see.
So the meaning of seeing a law
or observing a law
It's with the eyes of the heart rather than the eyes of the head.
And in this sentence, the latter part comes first. That's the inferior grade.
And the superior grade is the first part of the sentence. So what's the inferior grade of this third degree? The inferior grade is to worship Allah. And above that doesn't just mean worship. It means to serve Allah, to serve Allah, to live one's life, with the knowledge and with the conviction that alas Colonel with the honor sees the person at all times.
Now mentally we know that, but Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
de la jolla relates Hadith in which the Sahaba of the Ummah, asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and said to him, O Messenger of Allah, what is the nurturing of one soul?
What is the desk gear? What is the men's this gear of his neffs? What is a men's purification of his knifes? What is the men's nurturing of his soul? So the prophets of the lover and he will send them said, the nurturing of his soul is that he comes to know that Allah is with him, wherever he is,
that Allah is with him. And in another Hadith later about whether Masami there'll be a lot more
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
the best of faith of the only man the best of faith is
that you know,
that lies with you, wherever you are.
That consciousness, that constant awareness
of a loss being with a person
as a loss as well American in America.
And he is with you, wherever you are, he says in the poor and Warhol American in America.
He is with you, wherever you are.
He's with them wherever they are.
In the La La Vina taco wunderino saloon indeed, a lot with those who have Taqwa Allah is with those who are most seen.
Those who have
that Maria, that closeness of a last panel with
that company of a loss of a child.
That togetherness of a law has emerged.
That is something truly unique. But we should not misunderstand any of these phrases.
We should not regard that as a law being merged with his creation.
A law is distinct from his creation.
A law is distinct from any part of his creation.
his subjects, not just his servants, not just the people of creation, but anything of creation last parameter that is distinct from his creation.
So how do we understand that Maria, how do we understand that togetherness, that Allah being with his creation, how do we understand it? Now we understand
the other descriptions of a loss of which we believe
how Allah has described himself
and we accept how Allah has described himself. So if Allah says he is with you, then his being with us is in a manner that benefits as much
We accept it as it
is Maria is something that we accept Maria, meaning his togetherness is being with his creation, we accept as it is, as befits His Majesty, as befits.
So the second part of the sentence, the inferior part, well, I wouldn't say in theory, the second part of the sentence is the lesser degree. The first part of the sentence has a higher degree, the lesser degree is that we live our lives, we worship a law, we serve a law with the knowledge and with the conviction that he sees us.
But imagine if someone was to was to develop that awareness and that consciousness of a last panel, the panel all the time
we behave at traffic lights,
we behave at traffic,
we are fearful of parking on two yellow lines, because we will get a parking ticket.
We fearful of the red Lance.
Simply because we don't want points in our license or a fine.
While insurance to be bumped up.
There's a camera.
Normal people behave.
I say normal people, because they are some who are aware of the camera and they still make idiots of themselves.
So even in the presence of security camera, normal people behave,
behave in the sense that even if they're knifes tells them to do something, that they're aware of awareness, their realization, their consciousness that they are being watched,
prevents them from carrying out criminal activity.
And sometimes it's not even to do with crime.
It's about how we are perceived.
We want people to lovers, we want people to think that we want people to like us.
We want people to
have a good opinion of us. And that desire just to have
other think, well, others to perceive as well, that desire leads us to changing,
altering, consciously altering our behavior in their presence, for no financial reward, for no military physical reward, the only reward is
something very removed, we change our behavior in the hope
that we think that they will think better of us. So we try to second guess them. And then our second guessing them in trying to read their mind and merely hoping that they will think good of us. And not that we will ever know. But merely in the fall on hope that they will think good of us, we actually change our behavior. We conduct ourselves differently. And not just as adults, even children.
In fact, they in research in studies, they've seen that
forget three four year old infants, newborn babies,
they've monitored newborn babies.
newborn babies cry
when they know that there is someone in the vicinity in the hope that they will be given attention.
Once they actually come to realize that there's no one around,
they stop. And not because they're tired of wailing and crying.
But even newborn babies have this awareness and consciousness that there isn't anyone around the moment they know someone is around in order to attract attention.
They will wailing weep, and these are newborn babies.
So, an even infants, three year old children will consciously change their behavior.
If they know someone is watching.
We do it as adults as well. In fact, we do it in a bad way.
So our Salah undergoes a change of color every one of us
the way we pray at home, in the privacy of our bed.
When no one is watching.
In fact, for many people, the wife's Allah undergoes a change when the husband's watching and vice versa, the husband saw that undergoes a change when the wife is watching.
And this is why the older man say that you will never be sincere, you will never attain sincerity in your Salah. Until it makes no difference whether you are praying next to a human being or an animal.
ie if you are praying next to a lamb.
Is there any conscious change in your Salah? No
big thing as a human being and there is a conscious change because we're always worried about what someone will think of us. That's all we worried about. What will their perception be? So in the hope of someone thinking better of us, we actually change our behavior.
And vice versa. Sometimes something is good for our health, something is good for our safety, something is good.
It's cold out.
You need to wear a certain type of clothing in order to protect you from the cold and help you avoid falling ill. But if you look stupid,
you more worried about what people will think than your own hands.
We do this all the time. We're actually more conscience conscious of what people will think of us than our own health. So we may be willing to endanger our lives. We may be willing to prolong our illness or accept a new illness, we may be willing to risk limb and life rather than
have people think differently, others something which we will never know. total strangers. What difference does it make someone walking along? And they look at you.
If they think
that guy looks smart, they think that guy looks smart, and they carry on. That's it. You'll never see them again.
You'll never cross paths again.
What good does that do to you? You still don't know what they are thinking. You won't know.
And even if you address stupidly,
not stupidly, but you addressed prudently, others may think it's unfashionable. someone walks past and looks at and thinks what an idiot. So what they'll go their way and never see them again.
We do it in virtually everything we do in every bar that we do in clothing, we do it in our dress, in our fashion sense, what's fashion, fashion is all about. It's all about impressing others, having others think goodness, we are so worried about other people's perception of us. Now elaborated on this because
imagine if we were to have a share of such consciousness with a loss,
that we were to think that Allah is watching us, we were to feel that what will allow thing company, if I do this, what will allow think,
what will unlock say about me?
Do I want the creation to think Good evening, we'll do I want the created
allows love is that
he will love his transit and it comes and goes, it changes into him. It rises and falls it fluctuates. Because how many people truly lovers, we are objects
to be exploited to be used to be abused, to be to be made a means
to fair that other people
as I explained in my talk recently about true love.
When people talk about love, they talking about filling a void in themselves. And we, you and I and others every one of us every human being is a means of that void being filled.
And if they feel that it's not being filled, if they feel that you're not doing the job of making them feel better.
Why would we want
to risk everything for human love when Lars lovers
only speak about the consciousness of a last parameter with their,
I said this is a lesser degree. Imagine if we were to create that awareness and consciousness, how lumps powerful with Allah would.
reward is not just reward is how protected and preserved we would be.
If a camera can prevent us from committing a crime, if people's collected glances axes and their gaze honors,
forces us to modify our behavior for the better.
Imagine if we were to create that constant awareness and consciousness enters that last parameter where data is watching as he is with us wherever we are.
Imagine how we would behave how we would conduct ourselves. That's what taqwa is ultimately, that's what is the point isn't just the fear of a law of fear online is a small part of
the why, in fact, in one narration of this Hadeeth the wording is, and that was the law. Induction Lark and Nikita axon is that you worship a law you serve a law you feel as though you see.
That's what the law is. taqwa isn't just the fear of a law. It's the constant awareness of a law, awareness of loss.
That's the lesser degree. So you have Islam then you have a man, which is a much higher grade much more difficult. And then well above EMA, and you have Exxon, and Exxon itself has two grades. The Lesser grade is that you are aware and conscious that a lot of what Erna
watches you observe she is with you.
What's a higher grade, if someone can achieve the lesser grade than in Sharla, they may be able to progress to the highest grade. And what's the highest grade
of all of these ranks. It's the first part of the sentence. And then with the luck and the guitar, that you worship Allah, as though you see.
Now physically, we can't see your last Chronicle with Allah in the dunya. We can't see your love with the eyes of our head. But this is a metaphorical vision in that we've seen a law we observe a law with the sight of our hearts,
with our overseer, rather than our bus,
not with the sight of the mind, and the sight of the eyes, rather with the sight and the perception of the heart. And this is a rank known as a rank of Shahada. where a person is observant or last Chronicle, again, not physically.
This is a very, because this is the highest grade is something so lofty, so spiritual, it's grossly misunderstood.
grossly misunderstood, and very sensitive, very delicate. It's difficult for me to explain, it's difficult for people to understand and perceive.
But there's one beautiful heavies which can describe it. And there are other hobbies as well. But one of the headings that can describe this rank is one related by man.
This is rather unique

They would then add the word Nola haber to see

prophets of the love it was relates from Allah subhanho wa.
Masada Lee and

And a servant of mine continues to draw closer to me, through Noah feel through optional deeds
until have dealt with him.
But this doesn't just mean Oh, he prays a few.
And he prays a few nephalem. Now I mean, he fulfills all of the obligations that Allah has imposed on him. And then having fulfilled all of the obligations. What else does he do? He continues to draw closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala through neuf
through optional deeds,
and having perfected his farm

having fulfilled all his obligations towards Allah, not just obligatory prayers, and having completed so many no aphelion fulfill so many optional deeds, what is the last panel with an essay and my servant continues to draw closer to me with optional deeds, until

And if he asks of me, I surely do give him and if he seeks refuge in me and protection
of me put my protection, then I surely do give him refuge and protection.
And then the last parameter Allah says
never in which he continues in the head he never do I hesitate
in doing something which I do,
as much as I hesitate in claiming the soul
of a motmot
for he dislikes death
and I dislike her tea.
That's a heavy, but see how last crown hall with Allah says that I become his ears with which he is his hearing with which he hears his side with which he sees his hands with which he grasps and touches his feet with which he walks. If he asks of me, I surely do give him if he seeks refuge in me I surely give him
