Similar Rahmani Raheem at every level so that was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was Sufi Omen wa salam alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

We are ready would you all for putting your knowledge into action?

00:00:17--> 00:00:20

Welcome to session three day one of

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

Howdy.

00:00:23--> 00:00:54

Howdy Takuma Minogue. himolla. In our last session, we dived into the habit of amendment number we had it mentioned by amendment number we here which the habit of honorable hubbub robiola one, and we discussed a few points from them. Number one, there's nothing about your actions except that they'll be judged by intentions. And number two, based on your intentions, will you be rewarded accordingly? Number three, we should be people that focus on our character, not on our personality, we should be a people that

00:00:55--> 00:01:21

should we judge ourselves not based on how people perceive us, but based on how Allah perceives us and we know that Allah receives a lot looks at us based on our reality, what our hearts hold how our hearts really are. Right? And then the fourth thing we discussed, we said that this hadith is general it's all encompassing, but there are some exceptions to it, such as matters that require staying away from like sins, like, for example,

00:01:24--> 00:01:45

those matters that we have to do because they shouldn't exist, like purifying an impurity. All these matters don't require us to have an intention for it to be considered to be islamically. Correct. Right. This Hadith is not inclusive of those matters. Rather, this hadith is inclusive of number one, those actions which are acts of worship in and of itself, number one, number two,

00:01:47--> 00:02:20

it's inclusive of those actions, which are mundane activities of life that we want to convert into an act of worship. So we can build generally doing those No, you know, those activities that people normally considered mundane, such as work study, going to the gym going on holiday, and so on and so forth. And one other thing we did mention was that our intention also helps us differentiate between the different types of worship and the different levels of the types of worship that we do such as YG versus sadhana, such as

00:02:22--> 00:02:28

in terms of the first category, such as a bottle solid versus amazon seller, such as a fast done because of

00:02:30--> 00:02:52

a capybara, or expiation, which is also compulsory. And past data, for example is Ramadan, which is also compulsory intention has all these applications. And we don't forget what we said that all these are universal. And Mm hmm. Allah says that all religions revolves around three narrations, this being one of them. One of the

00:02:54--> 00:03:28

most important aspects obviously, of this narration, brothers and sisters is the importance of lost meaning doing it for the sake of Allah, meaning, making sure you purify your intention. So when I say last year, I'm particular meaning purity of intention, that you you work on yourself, right must always work on our intentions and remind ourselves why we do what we do. It can never be that we always you know, shame upon the first point of attack, when she attacks you is that he hits your intention. This is what shaper will do. If he can't stop you praying Salah he will pollute the intention you have when you pray.

00:03:30--> 00:03:35

Right. So always work on that intention. Don't take your intention for granted.

00:03:36--> 00:03:52

Don't take it as you being access in that you check in your intention, check it, it's important that it's not mixed with love for fame, or love for name. It's not mixed with love for recognition. Now, it's only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:53--> 00:04:32

Right. So ensure that you take care of us. And the last thing that I want to say, with regards to this matter of the intention is that a person does not practice idolatry or polytheism or shake him for example, they work without intending it being for the sake of Allah. Does that make sense? We must add this to complete the discussion. We said that if you want to make your mundane action of life, an act of worship so that you reward it, you should have the intention. But what about the person who goes to university for the degree? Do we say he's practicing shirk? He's not doing for the sake of Allah. We say No, why? This is not an act of worship in and of itself. And the scholars

00:04:32--> 00:04:38

have said that the the proof for this is the fact that for example,

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for example, during the battle, that a person who

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

defends himself against the enemy and the enemy dies as a result of the attack.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

When this person has the greatest right to the body armor of the person killed

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

So let's see a person in the battle does this for the sake of the body armor.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

Did this person practice shall

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

we say no?

00:05:12--> 00:05:38

We say no, because the Sharia has told him this this is a this is a permission which the Sherry has given him, right. So the Sharia takes into so this is the evidence that certain the certain activities which the Sharia has told us to do, for example, the Sharia wants us to be educated. The Sharia wants us to have a job wants us to have job security, the Sharia wants us to be fit. So if someone says I'm doing it to be fit, because the Sharia allows it, am I practicing? Shall we say no?

00:05:40--> 00:06:18

But where does the intention help us here in terms of building our agenda and getting that he wants Is that clear? Right? But we will be here is if you intend other than Allah in something which is an act of worship in and of itself, like the recitation of the Quran, this is an act of worship in and of itself, like seeking Islamic knowledge. This is an act of worship in and of itself, like Salah it's an act of worship in and of itself. It can not by any means or form Bebo anyone other than Allah, you give zeca you give sadaqa This is an act of worship in and of itself, you go for Hajj, you go for Amara, an act of worship in and of itself, you can you have to make sure your intention

00:06:18--> 00:06:25

is pure. And this is really if we're going to get into the nitty gritties of the Arabic terminology. Alas, comes from Alaska, you

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

have class refers to the process of purifying something from an impurity that fell into it.

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

That's what it means. Yes, system.

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

You know, if it's an act of worship, if something is an act of worship, in and of itself, like Salah, I can only have one intention,

00:06:59--> 00:07:39

then your the rewards that you get depend on how you position that. But the Amara is not for the sake of the family. Don't confuse the two. So the oma is for Allah, but I'm also going to see family. So accordingly, will your rewards be shared? Does that make sense? accordingly? Will your rewards be shared? But we don't see if that was the Ramadan? You did, Paula. But if you say I'm going to my family can say I'm a special relative because I do O'Meara say, so you're going for name now that she? Does that make sense? So don't confuse those realities. But that's why I'm sharing with you these details because a lot of these questions come from the public. Now, if I teach the

00:07:39--> 00:08:08

heavy I'm taking into consideration the questions that you have, in light of the Hadith that we study, that now you have categories, to the understanding of the intention to the understanding of Islam, right to the understand to to the understanding of how the reward system of Allah subhana wa Taala is based and accordingly you can understand these things. So if I go for Amara for the sake of the Amara, and then to visit family and then to do some shopping,

00:08:09--> 00:08:50

that doesn't mean your hunger is wrong, Yama is correct. Okay, but based on it, will your intentions usually based on your rewards be distributed? Okay, so all this inshallah is understood? Do you have any questions I was just asked, and my plan was to make sure that we've driven the understanding home, so if you have any questions, speak now or forever hold your peace, or should I say forever being pieces, because if you have half knowledge, then it's worse than no knowledge. So you will be in pieces if you don't piece it together right now. So please ask. And if you don't ask, then it means I'm a very good teacher. Right? Because Mashallah, everything is clear. Yes, forever.

00:08:52--> 00:08:52

Go ahead.

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

Yeah, right. So our brother is saying, sometimes my intentions are mixed. All right, in this has to do with an act, which is worship in and of itself, it can't be mixed.

00:09:13--> 00:09:19

Say, for example, I'm going for Amara, you know, Paula, but also because you know,

00:09:21--> 00:09:43

it will build me some it will, it will build me some goodwill with Mohammed, for example, that is an act of worship in and of itself, it can only be followed. But if you say for example, I'm going to university for the sake of Allah, you know, for the degree so on and so forth. Then as we said, this is permissible, why because the Sharia is permitted you to stay.

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

But your rewards will be distributed according how much of it is for the sake of Allah according the agenda will be how much is it for the dunya accordingly, will you be helped? Does that make sense? Is that clear, right. So something which is an act of worship,

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

When enough itself has to be formed by somebody who drinks water, I drink water to quench my thirst. Someone says I'm a bit confused here, am I drinking for the sake of Allah to quench my thirst, nothing for you to be confused about. And if you do for the sake of Allah and to quench your thirst, there's no problem here because the Sharia has told you drink the person in the battlefield, under the attack does what he has to do for the sake of Allah and for the body armor. What did we say? This is permissible? Why? Because the Sharia has permitted it. Right?

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

So it's fine.

00:10:33--> 00:10:39

But when we talk about something, which is an act of worship in and of itself, then it can only be for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:50--> 00:11:11

No, that's which was that which was our brother is saying, he understands my explanation. But he's saying I have something specific, which is, I'm giving us our data. And then I feel it for the sake of Allah. But then I have a feeling that maybe it's to show and I said, That's worse. That's doubt, that's Delta shape and whispers in

00:11:12--> 00:11:20

that doubt, and this happens to the best of us, that you do something. And once you're doing it, you start doubting, right? And

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

in answer to this, if your initial intention was for the sake of Allah continue,

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

because the scholars say, doing something for other than Allah,

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

and leaving something for other than Allah is showing off, is real.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

So you gave the sadaqa for the sake of Allah.

00:11:49--> 00:12:03

Alright, so you gave sadaqa right? For other than Allah, for other than Allah sadaqa is an act of worship in and of itself. So you gave it for other than Allah, that [???]. But now you're giving it for love. But now you start having doubts, will you leave it?

00:12:05--> 00:12:42

You leaving that act, because I'm scared so and so is watching me, because I'm scared this is showing this is real meaning not showing of meaning doing it for the sake of show. So our pious predecessors have explained this concept of in terms of what you've described, in this particular way. Why? Because shavon will try to make you stop worshiping Allah by playing with that intention. Remember, I said shape on the text the intention first. So one of the things he does is he knows that you sincere with Allah, and he wants you to stop doing this good work. So he comes to tell you, you're doing it to show up so you just give up? What do our scholars say, When this happens, look at

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

the initial intention.

00:12:44--> 00:12:59

If the initial intention was for the sake of Allah continue, and fight the doubt that shavon is blowing into you. It was putting into your your system. Right? So even taymiyah I think he's the scholar who says this Rahim Allah, trying to recall exactly where I read it.

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

That you look focused on your initial intention that was for the sake of Allah continue.

00:13:07--> 00:13:26

And five was for shape and don't give in to those for shape. And because the whisper of a pan is meant to bring sadness to your life, and the start of that sadness happens by you giving up the good that you were doing, by you not benefiting the owner as you would do. Right? This happens to the best of us. All right, is that clear to your brother, your sister.

00:13:30--> 00:13:35

The best way is to sit down with yourself and have that meeting with yourself.

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

Have that private time with yourself.

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

Get in touch with your fitter.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

A lot of the time we are consumed by the hustle and bustle of society.

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

The hitter is calling us towards guidance, but that noise is drowned out by the chaos of misguidance.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

It's up to you to put your mobile phone away

00:13:56--> 00:14:11

and take a break from your family to shut down the internet and tell them for the next few hours. I'm auditing myself has one person to take account of yourself before account is taken off you you have to audit yourself.

00:14:12--> 00:14:37

And that's where you figure out why you do what you do. Make sure the checks and balances are ticked off. Does that make sense? So that's the best way to do it. As you sit down and figure out why do I do what I do. Just make sure that your intentions are there. If you find the intention is swaying, renew your intention. seek forgiveness from Allah. Okay. Yes, sister.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

So I wanted to touch on this actually because when I was teaching you about when I was teaching you about you know

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Diversity for the sake of Allah give you a job.

00:15:06--> 00:15:30

When I was when I was teaching you about have a job for the sake of Allah and so I could see some people like looking down. Some people checking their birth dates, some people checking, when did we graduate? It happens right? You think our survival I'm 40 years old. That means I didn't build agenda for the last 40 years. Meaning I sat in university for four years before that I was in high school for so many years before that I was in primary all those years are gone. Right? No one is here to make you sad.

00:15:31--> 00:16:05

No one is here to make you sad. And one thing I'll tell you is our lives the Most Merciful, right and the most forgiving, and he created agenda for you, or it needs is for you to have that sincere two hours Allah, Allah I didn't know. Today I learned something I didn't know. And I can't turn back the clock will lie if I could, I would make all my learning for you. Yeah, Allah, I'd make all my working for you. And we go my employment. Right The Allah asked from you to forgive my past and inspire my future. You build my agenda, as if I lived my entire life up to today for your sake, and I promise to try my best to make the rest of my life for you. That's what it is.

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

And you get up from that place, believing that your agenda is

00:16:11--> 00:16:34

renovated up in that instant, because we will always have good hope in Allah. That's how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that you never make a duel to align doubt that Allah has accepted it. I want you to make the do I believe that is all done. Call us and hamdulillah It's all over now. I will fix my intentions and work my best. And I've got my agenda already up to today. And thank Allah for bringing the lesson.

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

So don't be sad. All it needs is that sincere statement from your heart to Allah in your solitude? And will lie.

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

We never restrict the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:48--> 00:17:22

it's all encompassing. We never restricted you tell me share. I'm 60 years old. Well, Allah boom, my agenda as if I lived my life for him the last 60 years I tell you, yes. I've never restricted and no scholar before me has ever said that we restrict the mercy of Allah. Allah says what was your condition? Allah's mercy is all encompassing, nothing can be added to it. It encompasses everything, even the day that you will make from your heart inshallah. Okay, so don't be sad about the past. Very quickly. Moving on brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's talk about certain things that affect the knee after it's done since it's been brought up. So

00:17:24--> 00:17:53

let's say for example, a person so, we spoken about this class purifying your heart, you remove the impurity, so everything that remains is pure, we said philosophy refers to the purification process. So you had some liquid, some impurity fell into it, and you purified it, you remove the impurity, let's say you add some butter and some impurity differently, you remove the portion of the butter that has the impurity and the rest of the batch has edible, right. So the same thing with our intentions, we got to focus in

00:17:54--> 00:18:05

the process of purification, purify the Nia, remove the impurity, so everything that's left is is pure. And this concept of a class is all of religion. By the way.

00:18:06--> 00:18:24

This is why this is the best Howdy. Allah says in the Quran, Rama O'Meara in Lally Abdullah mcculley Sina LaHood be Allah says they were not commanded except to worship Allah meclizine. Sincerely LaHood Dean, this is all of the religions.

00:18:26--> 00:18:36

This is all of the religion, this concept of worshipping Allah, this is the crux of it. Brothers and sisters in Islam. This is the crux of it. Allah says level D, this is the

00:18:37--> 00:19:15

right so understand the reality of this. However, let's now discuss what happens to our intentions when things happen our intention so sometimes, for example, we have a situation where we have a person who from the beginning he did the act of worship for the sake of the people for the sake of name for the sake of pain for the sake of creating goodwill. He started praying because his parents told him if you pray, we'll buy you the car. So he paid for the car, for example. And that is why you shouldn't raise your children this way. Where you, you you teach them, obedience to Allah by bribing them with the dounia this is not good therapy, our brothers and sisters and we think IRA we

00:19:15--> 00:19:48

did naturally with no malice, but it's not good therapy. You should teach them to do it for Allah because Allah is worth it. He created you your passion, you he sustained you, you must pray and Allah will give you and give you attach that you attach the hearts to the rewards of gentlemen, not to the rewards of the dunya Okay, so a person did it for the sake of some worldly thing. What is the ruling here? The Act is rejected. Not just that the person has practice shirk, associated partners with Allah.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

This is dangerous, right? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man Salah You are a pocket Ashok, whoever prays for people to see

00:20:00--> 00:20:19

You've done shift woman sama You are a rocket Ashok who ever passed for the people to see his then shift woman Casa de la You are a rocket Ashok, the one who give sadaqa for the sake of people building goodwill for himself in front of the people and they see that he's doing this, then is done here.

00:20:22--> 00:20:32

Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this hadith is mentioned by Muhammad, and others and the Hadith is his sound.

00:20:33--> 00:20:37

And its meaning is correctly established in all in other nations in the

00:20:38--> 00:20:44

established generations in Sahih, Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim meaning from the authentic authoritative narrations.

00:20:45--> 00:21:06

Right, so this is completion. The person from the beginning didn't intend Allah, in an act that should only be done for the sake of Allah is a clear position. I don't think we have any confusion about this by the next one. The next situation next situation is a person who does it for the sake of Allah. But while he or she is doing it,

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

the wrong intention comes in.

00:21:11--> 00:21:37

The wrong intention comes in intention of developing goodwill, in the intention of praise from the people whilst you're doing the act. So what's the ruling here, the scholars say there's two situations here. The first situation is where the person started the act for the sake of Allah, and during the solid during the sadaqa, during the umbra during the Hajj, they nullified their first intention to eat.

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

And they made the act of worship solely for

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

for other than Allah, what's the ruling here, same, like the first entire action rejected, and you've practiced, this will not protect us from it. The second situation is

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

a person doesn't cancel out. The initial intention.

00:22:00--> 00:22:07

I'm doing the Salah Paula, but my father's watching me. So instead of one 200 vilavi three Subhan Allah

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

Subhana Allah, we know it's a long ruku

00:22:14--> 00:22:20

the Salah is for Allah, but someone walked in, and you became conscious of it and the quality increased of your prayer.

00:22:22--> 00:22:22

Right?

00:22:23--> 00:22:35

Right. So what happens here? What is the ruling here? Does this cancel the entire event? The scholars say no, the entire event is not canceled. But the portion of the worship

00:22:36--> 00:22:42

that was done for the pleasure of other than Allah, you're not rewarded for it. And that won't be looked at.

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

Is that clear?

00:22:48--> 00:23:19

Yet the added quality, the added quality will be rejected a lot only because it wasn't done for him. But Allah won't consider your entire event to be null and void. Why? Because you did it for Allah. And whilst you are performing the Salah, you didn't intend it to be for your father. But you increase the quality because your father saw you because your teacher saw you. So the initial intention is there. So that's what I used for the sake of Allah, that's fine, but the excess the extra that you did because of somebody else, not for the sake of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala won't look at that. Is that clear?

00:23:21--> 00:23:21

All right.

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

Then the third situation is a situation whereby you started the act for the sake of Allah, you completed the act for the sake of Allah. There was no addition for the sake of people. But outdate people started praising you and you found love pointing.

00:23:40--> 00:23:50

Without love. Somebody acknowledges you and says, Wow, I wish I can be like you and this person and he sacrifices and so on and so forth. And you found yourself feeling nice.

00:23:51--> 00:24:03

It can happen. You find yourself feeling nice about it. Does this cancel your rewards? It doesn't cancel your rewards, doesn't cancel your rewards. And the scholars say this is similar to

00:24:05--> 00:24:10

the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in which he was asked a companion asked him and said or at Roger,

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

er manual. Middle, Hey.

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

Do you see a person who does good deeds and people praise him as a result of that good deed?

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

So the robber sallallahu alayhi wasallam said tilaka ajil

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

Bushra elopement and breaking it up. So you can write it

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

till karatedo bush wrote me

00:24:36--> 00:24:47

that, that praise is Allah subhanho wa Taala giving the slave glad tidings before his time. That is getting the glad tidings the dunya before that.

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

But the scholars say that if the love poet develops, to the extent that the next time you do that act of worship, you are focused on the people

00:25:00--> 00:25:27

And what they'll say about you, now that's a problem. Or if nobody praises you, you take offense to it, that's a problem. Or you finish the act, and now you looking for it. That's a problem. Does that make sense? So if you did it for the sake of Allah, and throw it in, for the sake of a line afterwards, people praise you and you felt that human nature, you felt proud of yourself, your advisor is safe. And inshallah This is glad tidings from Allah that has been accepted.

00:25:28--> 00:25:43

But this doesn't mean if people don't praise you, it's not accepted. Don't get me wrong. However, if you now take that circumstance, and it develops into a human being, were you checking the numbers, how many people are listening to my check online? How many people come in and some people have this disease, they put something then they keep refreshing?

00:25:44--> 00:26:01

refresh? How many people how many people? How many pieces are you looking for the people, then you look at the comments was praising what I said? Who's Who said, What, who agrees who disagrees. And now you visit yourself with this and your happiness and sadness is based on the people's praise with this praise of you. Now this is this is becomes schilke.

00:26:02--> 00:26:24

Because now you started doing things for the people who will say, well, who praise you. And remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about one of the first people that will come on the day of the AMA recite of the Quran, a person who fought in the, in the battlefield in defense of Islam, a person who was a teacher of the religion, and Allah will say, what did you do? And the person says, I read the Quran I told

00:26:25--> 00:27:05

you like, why you did it so that people could praise you, Ah, that's now you started doing it for the praise. And then the head it says he will be commanded, the angels will be commanded to pick him up and putting him face downwards into the house, will not protect us from this. So never do it for the sake of praise. But if the praise comes to you, and you feel what you feel as a result, don't take it negative. Don't feel like I've lost my deeds as a result, rather, observes to do the shocker, thank Allah subhanho the enemy to Allah, ask Allah to help you with His love. But don't allow yourself to become a victim of the People's acknowledgement of your efforts. Is that clear? So

00:27:05--> 00:27:12

as you can see, the Sherry R is all about freeing yourself, by tying yourself to the Lord of the worlds

00:27:13--> 00:27:25

that freedom doesn't matter what people think of me. But in the same breath, the Sheree is not trying to shackle you with the rule and regulation of Islam to the extent that you stop doing anything. Because we live in a time where

00:27:27--> 00:28:02

the show is the business right? Everything we do is Facebook, its advertised, its Twitter, its social media, its broadcast its WhatsApp, its branding. Its right. And these questions come a lot from workers in Islamic organizations that you know, my task is to market but now I'm marketing this part of the scare is that the lecture is about a lie. It is about soul but it's the marketing and how to look at the analytics and the statistics and am I doing this for the show? Am I doing it for we say no, no, that is a process but I was you know, your initial intention is for Allah and your current intention is for Allah and you excellent for the sake of Allah, you will be rewarded

00:28:02--> 00:28:38

according doughnut shaped pan swirl. Do you hear that? Okay, what about when I'm successful, they give me a prize at the end of the year, they acknowledge me or a message goes out, right from the leader or the Amir or somebody saying we are special mentioned in Volunteer of the month, for example, I'm getting this praise is this a problem? We save this is glad tidings from Allah to you at hamdulillah in advance, thank Allah and ask Allah to protect you and increase for you. But make sure next month, you don't do this effort because I want to win the Volunteer of the month if that makes sense. All right. And with that brothers and sisters in Islam, we move on to the next half of

00:28:39--> 00:29:14

it. So the first half of the Hadith is, is nothing about your actions, except that they will be judged by intentions. Then, the other part is and your rewards are based on the strength of your intentions. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives an example. And this teaches us the prophetic methodology of education. That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam shares the lesson and he shares them an example that makes sense to the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah regiment is something fresh in their mind something they can understand. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says that whoever migrates obviously from Mecca to Medina, for the sake of Allah and His

00:29:14--> 00:29:26

Messenger, then that person has migrated for the sake of online his message. What is for the sake of online is messenger mean? He had a class and it was considered an act of worship, and he was rewarded accordingly.

00:29:27--> 00:30:00

But in the group of Muslims who did this migration, they might have been one or two people, maybe one person was going because there was a girl in Medina that he was going to marry. So he thought, let me go, I'm going anyway. So let me go with the Muslims that are getting married. Was he going for the sake of leaving, leaving a place of sin to go to a place of obedience? No, he was waiting for the sake of some business deal. Some marriage for example, as the head it says, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that you will be rewarded based on that the person

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

Who went from Mecca to Medina. With the people who went from Mecca to Medina, they got rewarded for worshipping Allah, you won't get rewarded for worshiping Allah. But if you got married for the sake of Allah, then you get the rewards for marrying for the sake of Allah. But those are the words are not the same as being hegira for the sake of Allah, because the rewards are deeper, right? If you do a worship Act, the rewards are greater. If you do a certain act, there's rewards but it's lesser. If you do an act, which is a mundane activity of life, but you convert it from a mundane activity into an act of worship through your intention, you get rewarded, but the rewards are not the same as

00:30:37--> 00:31:15

doing a certain act of worship, which is an act of worship in and of itself. And then obviously above that, an act which is compulsory, does that make sense? So we get rewarded, but at different levels. So the person who went to Medina got married for the sake of the dunya, no rewards. He went to Medina for the sake of marriage for the sake of Allah, he got rewarded for the sake of marriage for the sake of Allah, and the person who left Mecca to Medina for the sake of the hedgerows, leaving sin to obedience, then this person got the rewards for the hijra, and that reward is obviously greater. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah knows best.

00:31:17--> 00:31:28

Now in terms of his rough idea, his brothers and sisters in Islam, then hijra generally refers to leaving something for something else. And in Islam, it refers to generally leaving sin

00:31:30--> 00:31:59

must understand this. And that's what the scholars say, that a person who leaves sin and goes to obedience, they that hedger from that set, a person who lives in leaves innovation, and starts following, the sooner they have done hegira from innovation, and now they practicing this, does that make sense? It's a migration from a situation to a situation doesn't necessarily mean migration, from a place to a place.

00:32:00--> 00:32:08

So here's euro generally means to leave something for the sake of something else. This is what it means linguistic, and

00:32:09--> 00:32:22

in the Islamic context, then the foundation of this leaving or migration from something to something should be migration from something to Allah and His Rasul. If you migrate from sin to obedience, you've migrated from sin to align is

00:32:23--> 00:32:31

if you migrate from innovation to the sooner you've migrated from innovation to align the sort of right and in context of

00:32:33--> 00:32:52

ad like this, you understand brothers and sisters, that this is an act of worship. And an act of worship needs a class. I'm tying this back because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is sharing this as the example to the first part of the Howdy. So here's Yara is an act of worship. It should be Paula, if you leave your sin so that people can praise you it should.

00:32:54--> 00:33:07

Because that hegira should be for the sake of Allah, that is an embed that in and of itself, because that makes sense. Unless you do a dounia wager, for example, I migrate from this city to this city for my job that's different.

00:33:08--> 00:33:22

But generally, if you are migrating from something that the Sharia has commanded you to migrate from the master act of worship, the Sharia has told you migrate from simplicity to obedience you're doing. It's an act of worship you did for the sake of people.

00:33:24--> 00:33:29

The sherea has told you migrate from innovation to the sun, if you leave innovation, so you can get that job.

00:33:31--> 00:33:54

Does that make sense? Because he's euro. When the Sherry I command you to migrate from something to something else is an act of worship in and of itself, like seeking knowledge, like reading the Quran, like giving a second like going for Hajj and so on and so forth, to brothers and sisters in Islam. And we know that Asia for the famous hegira that the Muslims did, and that was the heater for Mecca to Medina.

00:33:56--> 00:34:01

Right. And before that, the nature of America to adversity.

00:34:02--> 00:34:14

These migrations were done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In his lawsuit, nobody left their families, their blood relations. Nobody left their financial standing the material well being their memories.

00:34:17--> 00:34:31

Right people are sentimental, their memories, the history, except for the sake of alignment. This is what we've been told to do. So let's do because we've said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah is the complete package, so picking and choosing here, right.

00:34:33--> 00:34:38

So this same procedure was done, which is the hedgerow from the land of disbelief to the land of belief.

00:34:42--> 00:34:54

And after 23 years, then Makkah became a land of belief. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam famously said where he talked about that there is no heater after Makkah has become Muslim.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And some people ask this question today, what about migrating is it allowed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

You know what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam meant in this hadith as our scholars say is that there is no hedger of from Mecca to Medina or any other land because maca is a Muslim land. The Muslims originally had to migrate from Mecca to Medina.

00:35:16--> 00:35:39

But now they no more need to. So obligation has been lifted. The ruling has been lifted. This is what he meant sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because maccha is a Muslim land. And the scholars say the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it in this open way teaches us that Morocco will be Muslim land until the day of pm it will never change. Despite whoever wants it. It will always be a Muslim land

00:35:43--> 00:36:10

by the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam never made an exception here. He said there's no hedgerows after Makkah is open and he left it open. Which means we deduce from this that it will always be a Muslim land until the day of pm. Now, obviously there's rules and regulations pertaining to his art and matters pertaining to Asia. This is found in the books of al Qaeda and the books of the Sunnah. And this is not the point of our

00:36:11--> 00:36:11

discussion

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

today.

00:36:15--> 00:36:56

And inshallah, thus far we've seen Subhanallah how universal these narrations are, you know what there's so much of lift that is absolutely so much that I have left out. But even though we've left out much, there's so much that we've shared as well. But what I want you to understand from this last statement is how deep these integrations are in our brain. And furthermore, understand how deep the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, and when he was described as having Java mirror kelin, universal speech, wholesome speech wholesaled speech, we should understand that this is what it is in a few words, he said so much sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he left so much for the ummah. And

00:36:56--> 00:37:15

as we spend time pondering over the Quran, we must also spend time pondering over the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for no doubt, it will help us understand the Quran better. My aim is not to complete the meaning. We want to try and complete what we can I actually wanted to cover for a heartbeat in our time together, but I even knew that was

00:37:18--> 00:38:01

that would be pushing it. And just in case, we printed two extra, but for me personally, as a teaching objective, my objective is not to rush through anything. My objective for the knowledge hype is quantity, sorry, quality over quantity. And as the setup before you say when Rama and Joomla Joomla, that whoever pours knowledge onto themselves in bucket loads, that knowledge will leave them in packet loss. Right. And this is knowledge high. So we want to be particular to the process of seeking knowledge quantity is far better than quantity. If you live here was two three narrations that you understand well, you internalize and you make it your year objective to bring into your

00:38:01--> 00:38:19

life. This is this is halen patio. This is this is beyond our understanding in terms of what is goodness, rather than taking so many Heidi's will enlighten your mind, but you haven't gotten closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. As a result, I'm about to release an article in Sharla called transformers.

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

Not the Transformers that you know, but talking about

00:38:25--> 00:38:50

not being a person that has a lot of movement in his or her life with very little progress. Today we mistake movement for progress. Movement is not progress. Right? movement is taking quantity without any quality, and you don't progress as a result of that movement. Right? So I'm gonna release this article inshallah, in the next few days, I'll try and finish it up in the breaks that we have.

00:38:52--> 00:38:52

And

00:38:53--> 00:39:05

this article is really dealing with the situation that we find ourselves in today where we have so much Islamic knowledge at our fingertips at the push of a button in the language that we want learning on demand, etc, etc, etc. But where is the

00:39:07--> 00:39:18

wisdom? Right? Where's the return? What's the return ratio here? Right? What do I mean by return ratio, your ratio of converting lead knowledge into practice knowledge ways back?

00:39:19--> 00:39:35

Right, that our parents didn't have the knowledge that we have today, but to Pamela perhaps the Tibet the steadfastness in the deen is greater than ours, that perhaps we are a people to question Allah without so much knowledge that we have and they never once question allow the little knowledge that they have.

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

The Juma quote was when Arabic so they never even benefited from the Jew Mahatma today, we have the goodbye in our language and everything else with it. So what we want is quality, internalization and growth development. Because after all, progress is you moving from your current level to the next level. Keep that in mind as you study with our other machines that would have it Allah and chef of the land.

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

Have you level law and with that, I'll bring the session to a close. I want to thank again, our brothers and sisters from across the institute and everyone involved in making this knowledge a reality indeed by thanking the people we are able to thank Allah Subhana who has added a couple of loving nomikos santella man, so haven't labeled him these Pentacles more become deconditioned will La La Land that's the Furukawa to blue lake Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
