Yeah, the chi M is the one that's in charge the superintendent of that of that particular school and that school was named after Who?
may have been l Josie right. That school was named after him because it was founded by his son by Jane. Okay, talk briefly about the book we are studying what is the name of the book we study?
a heartfelt heartfelt advice to a friend. Right. Okay. hamdulillah. What can you tell me about this book? Why Why is it important?
Well, I mean, if we go back and you you look at some of the things that we're covering, we're talking about
We're talking about the straight path, the need for guidance, we're talking about how to become an Amen, we're talking about six keys to happiness. I mean, he's covering so many things that each and every single Muslim needs. And it's and it's, it really is heartfelt advice from a friend to a friend, but who the advice comes from is very important, and because it will pay him and he had so much knowledge in so many different disciplines, it allowed him to, you know, cover cover a wide variety of topics in terms of his advice.
What are the qualities? Oh, why does it even tie him talk about Baraka? Why does it even Okay, I'm talking about but I can anytime you read a book, I want you to ask yourself, why did we go from this point to that point? What is it that brought that on? Because it's going to help you connect the dots, he started talking about Baraka correct? What is biochimie? How do we translate that usually be blessed, but what does Baraka actually mean?
To Him so that it's stable, and that it increases, right? That that's actually Baraka. So if you have Baraka in something, it is established for you and it and it increases, right. So and that and that. I mean, blessing is not a bad translation for that. I don't I don't know that there is a better translation for it. So what why is it okay, I'm talking about this in the first place.
But the easy answer is because he made do I, for Allah Deen to be blessed wherever he is. Right? Take taking from what he said is so damn said about himself with Johnny, Johnny Allah. Well, Johnny Mubarak and Emma Coons and allow me me blessed Mubarak, wherever I may be. So then he started talking about what does it mean to have Baraka? What does it mean to be blessed? But why?
That that's why he first started talking about it, is because he made that dua for his friend. Yes.
Keep going, yes.
Because you have to understand how to be blessed, in order to work for it. So we don't just make do I, and then don't act, and don't try to do our best to get what it is that we're making, do it for
right to do what you need to do what you can do to make that dream, a reality. Right? And so this is why he has to teach him What does it mean to be blessed, so that you can seek to do that, because then you will be blessed to be in the land. So he's, and then we go into the point where what are the qualities of the blessed, and this was the
screen that we brought up the last time. And the two at the top of the form at the bottom have basically an explanation of the two at the top, which is teaching beneficial knowledge wherever you are, that's part of being blessed. And we talked again, about how it doesn't mean that you have to know everything, right? Or that you have to be a scholar, to teach what you can, from the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada, and to advise those whom you with whom you congregate. In other words, Be true to them. We talked about naseeha, right? Obviously, here is translated as advice, but what we're talking about being true to the people that you're with, and if you're true to them, you want
the best for them, you want the best for them in this life, and you want the best for them and then and the next life. And so being true to them. If you see them going on a path that's not good, it's to try to bring them back to back to the right path, or to try to encourage them to be in those places where they're going to benefit tight. This will let us
ask the questions for tonight shalash.
What is the root cause of harm befalling people, according to the author,
talks about workflow and hardware, in light of the favorite ones mentioned, instead of two factor.
The author mentions three qualities of those were favored by law, what are they? and What relation does this have to the straight path through outcomes?
The author highlights 10 ways to which we are always in need of guidance, because for a loss upon what the artist says, and make us any man for the for the pious, which commandment lamattina
subpoena amendment Now, what does that mean? Why does he mention this? Okay, so notice at the end, why does it even claim mentioned this? I agree
We need to try to look at how we are moving from point to point in any book that you read, right. But a lot of times and I know this just from from feedback, people read books, and they don't really realize the connection between the books, it's like, it's like, it's like a totally different every time a page turns, it's a totally different topic, and they're not seeing how it's connected. That connection is very important for us to make. So inshallah Tata will be going over that today. tell you, if you turn to page 16, your books and I forgot my books or panela.
Let me just see real quick.
Yeah, turn to page 16.
At the top of who has the book hamdulillah. I was going to put it on the slides, but it just was too much time by
11 Okay, and Rahim Allah just start at this point, and then we'll take over. So he talks about those four qualities, right. And he says, Truly, all of those qualities are from the Baraka of a man, not I'm gonna give you this back, and I'm gonna give it back to you.
Let us see it shall ematic if a person lacks the set qualities, not only is he devoid of Baraka, but also there will be no such thing when meeting him or being with him. So, so be careful, right. In other words, if, if those four qualities that he talked about from the MOBOTIX team, if you don't have those qualities, or if a person does not have those qualities, not only do they not have bonica, but congregating with those type of people being around them, also makes that gathering devoid of both. Okay, and we'll talk a little bit about more, a little bit more about that as we go along and shallow, tight.
I mean, who knows
the value of time.
Further, the essence of bedika will extend to throw its shade on whomever, whoever meets him, or be in his company, because such a person waste his time talking about trivial current affairs, and past events that cause the heart of his company to be ruined. And clouded is the waste of time and the correction of the heart for sadness, that other problems prime causes of all types of harm befalling people stop right there. So the root cause of all harmful matters that befall people are what according to the author, author, wasting time and
and the corruption of, of the heart. Wasting time in anything that corrupts the heart and wasting time is one of those things that corrupts the heart. Even Okay, him by him, Allah tada says in his book called alpha Wade, he says that wasting time is worse than death.
He says wasting time is worse than death. Wasting time, cuts you off from Allah and the hereafter.
And death cuts you off from the dunya and its people. So which one is worse, wasting time wasting times panela and there's there's a lot to be said about this particular issue of wasting time. And and I do.
I mean, for the sake for the sake of time of this class, we can go into all of the problems with wasting time. But just know that the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam has informed us that each and every person letter Zulu, cut them abdon yo melki, Amity had to use an Arabic each person will remain standing two feet, the two his legs will be standing until he's asked about four things I normally he femap Now, that's the first thing and his lifespan, how was it spent? How was it spent? And the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sent in so that each one of you couldn't know Nancy yell do that everybody goes out in the morning for Bay on nafsa, who from article her own movie koha. Each one of
you is a vendor of his own soul.
You go out to the marketplace, that commodity is time you either going to free your soul, or you're going to leave it in its shackles. It's going to be attached the shackles though those chains, it is going to be enslaved to other than Allah Subhana Allah or it's going to be free from all of those things. But what's the commodity there? The commodity is time. It's how you use the time. That person has 24 hours in a day and that person has 24 hours in a day.
How did that one uses time
Did this one use her time? That's the difference. The amount of time is the exact same SubhanAllah.
And that's your commodity. And it is a an ever diminishing commodity.
Every minute that goes by, you will never, ever be able to get that back.
But don't lose hope.
Because the reality is and we're talking about this concept of buttock, the reality is, is that there are things that you can do to have Baraka in your time to make up for lost time.
In other words, if Allah Subhana Allah blesses your time, he puts Baraka in your time, you may get accomplished in a month, which takes other people a year to get accomplished or get accomplished in a year when it takes other people five years to accomplish, because the lies will put barakah in your time.
And, and that comes from so many different ways. But our Prophet Isaiah Salatu was set as a near mitanni mo buena v Mecca thielmann ns, right? That there these two blessings that many people are cheated out of, that they cheated out of as well for your health, and free time, spare time. And the reality is you don't have time to spare. That's how you get cheated out of it because you think that you actually have time to spare if somebody was to come right now. And he just put a half a million dollars, right on the floor, and he burned it.
What would you think?
Mitch noon? Right? He's crazy. Like for real? something is really wrong with him. Why? Why would you think that?
Because he could have done something else with that, because he obviously doesn't value the wealth that he has the resources that Allah Subhana Medina has given him, right? Because he burned it.
What about a person who says I'm going to kill time?
I got some time to kill.
What's more valuable wealth?
As in material money, or time? time?
Even even in English, when we say Time is money, time is money. How do you have time to kill? How does a Muslim who truly believes he's going to stand in front of a loss of habitat?
And be asked about his entire life and how he spent it? How do we have time to kill? We don't? We really don't. It doesn't mean you have to you know, you don't have to wait until you're you know, you're older. You you start feeling like I don't have any time left and no, no, it's from a very early age.
In fact, in fact, in that same Hadith about a person being asked, oh, Kiana and some of the narration says when Shabaab he FEMA f net, he'll be asked about his youth, and how he spent his youth. Right. So it is very important that we don't waste time. And SubhanAllah. There's an article I was reading it recently, it's it says, sitting is the new smoking. sitting is the new smoking. In other words, sitting down all day, has very bad effects on your health. Right. So here's another article that talks about how sitting for more than 30 minutes actually shuts down the muscles below your waist, right. And then your metabolism slows down by like 90% some other stuff. So So here's a
If you set good timer for 30 minutes, right, set your timer on your phone, and make it go off every 30 minutes all day.
Do it for a week, like next week, when we come back and we talk about it. You're going to start realizing how many how fast 30 minutes goes by and then start looking at what did I get accomplished in those 30 minutes that I read anything from the crime that I remember last time I did I pray that I do this? or What did I spend that 30 minutes doing? realize? You don't those 30 minutes are a commodity that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed each and every one of us with the same amount of
you get 30 minutes, your your minute is 60 seconds a minute is 60 seconds. Right? What are we doing with our time? If we are more conscious about that than be in Atlanta with less likely to waste it? We're less likely to waste it the same way that a person who has cash is less likely to spend it
in a certain way than a person who's using a card. That's just the reality. You'll feel it with that card. That card Okay, hmm $100 here 200 whatever
When you actually have to physically pull out cash and count it, it's a different type of spending. There's a different type of spending. So, and the point is,
we have to be very careful about our time and not wasting our time. Now, does that mean that there is no time for relaxing? Our profit it assigns was an answer. There's a time for this. And there's a time for that. The problem comes in, when people you ever see somebody what exactly, you know, I'm just unwinding. You've been a winder for three hours, he's only doing something for hour. How do you unwind? How does it take that long to unwind? And what does that even mean? So like, we have to be very, a lot more, a lot more stingy with our time. Now, again, there's a time for this and a time for that, like the profit is a lot to the same set. And then there's people who you can't, you can't
do that. You don't do that to your parents. You don't go around your parents and the timer goes off at 30 minutes, like I gotta roll.
Sorry, yes, 30 minutes is up for now. Not not what your parents because will bill Wiley daini, a senate and the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sent in, you know, talked about a man playing with his wife, he talked about swimming, he talked about horseback ride, there are other things from the Sunnah of the Prophet it aside from him. But again, those are the things that we should be doing for relaxation, and recreation and so forth.
Now, so the root cause of all harmful matters, wasting of time, and the corruption of the heart, those things are beware of those things that corrupt the heart, no questions because we're live, we're not going to get through anything.
Further, not only does that make a person lose his share of the ward, but it will also lower his rank
and status menza in decidable is right so what's the result of wasting time in a corrupt heart, that your status is lower than the sight of a loss of power?
And that is what we should be worried about what so many times we're worried about what another person thinks about us, or trying to impress somebody else, or not doing something so that they don't think that I'm like this or that I'm like that. But what about what your status is with Rob Bellamy wasting your time Allah gives you that and then you waste it that lowers you in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, with this reason, some scholars advised beware of mixing with those who company will waste your time and corrupt your heart less otherwise all your fears, all your affairs be ruined. And you become among those who lost the pilot who went the other set into court and when
that do get found out, but who and what? Who, what kinda ambu bow tie right? So here, we're gonna get to the AI in a minute shalonda to translate it, but here it is explaining to his friend that you have to be mindful of the company that you keep and the profit it is Salatu was Sadam said method. Julissa, sorry, what did Lisa Sue kehamilan misc when everything kid the example of the righteous companion, the righteous jellies, the one whom you sit with? And the one who is not righteous is like the one who was selling misc, the one who sells musk and the one who blows into Bello, the blacksmith, right? What's going to happen from a person who sells Musk, they either going to give
you some or they'll sell you some and you can still smell good. And at the very least you get from him what you get a nice smell, you get a nice smell. But the one who's a blacksmith, what do they do
is you're going to get nothing from them but burnt or to smoke or or a bad foul odor coming from right. And so be mindful of the company that you keep is very important. Right?
Again, this is another sensitive topic. Many of us have to work in corporate America and so on and so forth. As a totally different situation. What are we talking about here? It went in with the prophet Isaiah select was saying for example, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said a lot of why that Dini halevi. Fernando, I have to commend you Harlan, right, that a person is on the religion of the way of his caniell and anybody have you studied Oh dear. Then what is a highly
intimate friend that close friend, which is which is crazy because sometimes somebody see gives the lambs to somebody or whatever.
So be careful model Allah Dini, clearly
a totally different issue. Right? That's not the same thing. That's not your deal. Somebody that you had dinner with somebody that you you know, that's not your cleaning column is like the person you say your right hand, man, right? That's, that's
your main man. Okay, fine. What you just told everybody how old was it?
Man, so but but all in all, you still have to be very careful of the company that you keep because of those people take you away from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. And that's what you look at and today and today, the way that things go down. A lot of people don't even have real like friends that they can touch. So it's like virtual cyber friends, even that you have to be careful of that company because at the end of the day, you still spending time with them, you still spending time with them and they're either taking you bringing you closer to a loss mentality or pushing you further away from a loss of hands out. And the point is to find that company that is going to draw
you closer to Allah subhana wa tada and avoid those things, which take you away from Allah subhana wa tada and those gatherings in which are lost hands out his name is not mentioned because the prophet Isaiah salatu wa sallam said there's not a people who gather without mentioning the name of Allah Subhana tada except that they stand like like
Angie fit him are like the corpse of a dead body of a dunk like they were just sitting around that what did you get from that? is nothing but regret. Right? So being careful of the company one keeps and making sure that those who are around you are helping you get closer to a loss pantalla even even if they may not be as knowledgeable as you by you teaching them you're getting closer to a lost parents alibi, you serving as a good example for them, you're getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala No.
Further, and the translation of that verse means
and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless about remembrance and father's desire, and whose affair is ever, ever in neglect.
If you contemplate if you think about the state and condition to this type of people, you will find the heart of all of them, all of them, except maybe a few
are in a state of heedlessness
and being led by the whims and desires of Hawaii, run till their affair becomes ever negligent fooball hence, they observe not that which benefits their hearts and increases their righteousness. But they engage in matters that not only bring them no benefit, but also may cause them harm sooner or later it's going to happen a lot Exalted be He ordered his messenger la selected was to them not to obey this group. That's the obedience of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam necessitated not to obey this group of people, because they call for the following of desires and for neglecting the remembrance of the law.
Now, so here, it will claim Rahim Allah to Allah starts to talk about heedlessness which is called the law of law and it teabag and our following of desires, right it
and I actually like the translation it was being led by desires because it gives you that picture of the desires being in the front and you being and you've been behind they are the leader and you follow you follow that that leader and get in that leader now is taking you down a path of destruction. Okay, so
the Eliza Joe says well add to tear and men have fell now called the who and the cleaner what Tabitha Hawa and what is he being heedless of he's being heedless of the thicket of Allah subhanho wa Taala he forgets a lot. And, and that Vicar, obviously is both in the heart and on the tone.
And that's why it's important to Pamela. Sometimes the tongue reminds the heart and sometimes the heart encourages the tone.
So sometimes a person may not really be be thinking about a loss of hazard. After select sometimes you see people have sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub, right.
So panelo Hamdulillah, les nyla, okay, and they're not really thinking about it. And then because they say it so much, then they start thinking about what am I actually saying, right? Oh, I'm saying so pantalon hamdulillah. So it kind of reminds the heart and sometimes
The heart in its remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada that remembers becomes so profound that they begin to say it off with their tongues. And up until today, there are still people who a second doesn't go by, except that a last name is on the tongue. And that's something to strive for. That's something to strive for. That you are always in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala, even some of our machines, you will feel funny asking them questions because they say it's panels, panels, panels, panels, right. And you ask them a question. He's saying, There's no way he can be, like, internalizing what I'm actually asking. And he's doing decode of Allah Subhana Allah but sure
enough, they train their tongue so much, that they remember last penance Allah and they can, you know, understand what you're saying and be able to answer your question, and they remain in that state. And that's something to strive for, to never ever become heatless to never ever be in a state of lefleur where your heart is not attached to Allah subhana wa Tada. And then never being of those who are led simply by their desires, but that you try at all times, to be led by the instructions and the mandates of Allah subhanho wa Taala
he listens and reflect and desire, as
if he lives in his era of a law and the Hereafter is coupled with following one's own whims and desires.
Then only only evil emanates from such a relation, okay. So, here, the translator opted to go for a
the meaning which is which is correct, but it actually is talking about marriage. So he says, He that says, oh, widget, and these two if they get married, he listeners and Isabel Hawa, then the child is every evil, that's that's that's the way he says it. So it's basically like they get married, they consummate the marriage, and then they have this ugly child.
It's just evil. So both of them are combined in a person, then we have a big problem, because every evil is going to emanate from the marriage of those two, forgetting about Allah Subhana Allah and then following your desires. Now, it is often that both exist hand in hand and never and never are apart from each other person partners on the current state of the world in general and in particular, one will understand that he lived this he lessness stands as a barrier between the subject of the law and understanding and knowing a law.
No. So here
is a translation issue here for those of you who have the book. Can you read that against I forgot my book. So just read that last sentence where he said he listened stands in a way of if a person pondered on the current state of the world in general, and in particular, one will understand that heedlessness stands as a barrier between the seven cups of love and understanding and knowing nothing between between the servant
understanding and knowing the truth. So I'll hack is what even Okay, m says. And l hack is from the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the translated translated l hack, as Allah. But here we're actually talking about is ruffler being a barrier between you and the truth, meaning from a, from a knowledge, knowledge perspective, right? Because what we're going to see, what we're going to see is that it all boils down to being on the straight path boils down to having knowledge of that path, and having the willpower to act according to your knowledge.
So you know what you're supposed to do, and you have the willpower to implement what you're supposed to do. Clear. Now obviously, all of that has to come from Allah Subhana Allah, but those two things are very important. So what is it again, what beneficial knowledge and what and righteous actions, beneficial knowledge, it is that you know what you are supposed to be doing and know what you're not supposed to be doing? And then the beneficial actions are the result of you having the willpower to implement what it is that you know you're supposed to do and to stay away from which you're supposed to refrain from. So we're talking about here, what Leffler heedlessness, and it's the battle
Following designers love flow is what stands in between you and knowledge.
You're heatless you're negligent, you just, you're not even paying attention, you don't care. So that stands in front of you, or that stands in between you knowing what you're supposed to do or knowing what you're supposed to stay away from. And then however,
is what stands in the way of what
of your willpower.
you might know what you're supposed to do, but then you get this desire to take over. So that comes in the way that stands in the way of what beneficial action you see why every evil, right? Or the offspring of those two coming together, heedlessness, and the following of desires is going to be nothing but evil.
Yes, yeah. Well, when it's combined, then you don't have the knowledge. And you don't have the willpower to implement it.
Of whims and desires keep went away from searching for the truth. And following it. In the case of the former says a person becomes from buildings who are astray and indicate what's what's the former one was the former in the case of the former.
me read it again.
Volume of wins one and desires keep one away from searching for the truth and following it, right. They keep going. In the case of the former, such a person becomes from those who are astray, right.
From those who are straight, what do we say in the Quran? What do they call in sort of the fattier of barley? barley? Okay. Fine. So when does a person become from the bog? Lee?
Yes, following the whims and, and desires? Let me see
where we are, okay. So, here he says if a person doesn't occur, okay, following the whims and desires keeps one away from searching for the truth. So they don't what? They don't have beneficial knowledge because they're not searching for the truth. And the case of the former, such a person becomes from those who are straight, in the case of the ladder, which is not following the truth. So the first one, they're not what, they're not searching for the truth.
They are from the they are the de Lune. Okay. And then there are those who don't follow the truth. They know what it is, but they don't follow the truth. They are the model.
They are the ones who have. It says in the case of the latter, he becomes amongst those upon whom Allah evoked his anger. They earned a lot of anger because they know what the truth is, and they don't follow it. Okay, type one. And no mm. Hanif has talked about some of this incidents. In fact, he had in his explanation of sorts of fat to tie in and pay attention, because the repetition is important.
And it's very important also, as you'll see, to realize that fatty hat is a dude
that when you are reciting sorbitol Fatiha, you are actively asking Allah subhana wa tada to give you beneficial knowledge. And to give you the willpower to do righteous actions, you're asking for that every single time you recite sorts of fat, right? You have to internalize that because it will change your prayer. Right? type fathers, you know, the favorite ones, and cry and contrast. Notice he says in contrast and contrast to who
must do balletmet Bali in contrast to those who have earned a lot of anger and from those who have gone astray we have the ones who are favorite What do we what do they call and I'm tylium family, those whom you have favorite, who are they? Those
are those that are those whom he has guided to acquire knowledge about him so they acquire knowledge about him so they know the truth. They know the truth, right? Go ahead, submit to Him and they submit to Him subhana wa Tada. So they what they follow the truth Yes, and prefer him
over everything else may Allah make me truly those are the ones who embark upon the path of safety, while the rest are walking on the road of doom.
With this reason on why oil has to be saved every day and every night for a number of times during this to that thing I've set off.
So what they do, what do they do every day and every night they ask a law firm for his guidance, they ask Allah Subhana Allah for his guidance. And there is no other statement in Islam that we are required to say there is no other prayer that we're required to say multiple times a day, other than Dena Sri Lankans therapy, Guide us to the straight path. And what you will see as well, is that when you're asking the law for guidance to the straight path, because some people might say, Look, I'm already Muslim, a little heathen following the sun. I'm being right, like they say here. So I'm already on the straight path. What does it mean guide me to the straight path? What does that mean?
To keep you on it, okay.
And to increase me and guidance to keep me on that straight path. Good.
Thank you Bismillah. And enter, allow me to do what
Sadat right to actually complete that journey on that path. And we'll talk about that in Charlottetown when we get there, but we're gonna get there soon inshallah. I think.
Yeah, I think everybody knows, Mashallah tight. So the favorite ones are those who would know the truth, follow the truth and ask for loss of hematogenous guidance. Now to be among those who are guided by a walk to the right path. The seven below is in great need to know all that title stop right there real quick, real quick. So if they know the truth, then they are not from who?
From the Darlene and if they follow the truth, they're not from the mob do we are them. So the so the favorite ones are those who are saved from lafleur and Isabel Hauer. And that's, that's what James is trying to get across this here. So when people are saved from heedlessness, and they save from following their designs, then they are from amongst the, the favorite ones. All right, no, go back go back to the straight path, to be among those who are guided by a law to the right path, that is the straight path, the certain of a law isn't this seven of the law is in great need to know all that which will benefit him in this life and the hereafter, to be inclined to favor that which will
benefit him over anything else. And to avoid all that which in this life, and the hereafter. Alright, so we see those three right there, knowledge of what's beneficial, you give preference to what is beneficial. You prefer that over everything else, even when your desires may want to take you somewhere else you give, you suppress that you give preference to what is beneficial and avoiding that which is harmful.
However, when overlooks knowledge, they will then be embarking upon a path of those who are astray. And if one deviates, does not comply or submit to a law, one will then be treading on the path of those whom a lot is angry with whom the law is angry by this elucidation explanation. By this elucidation, it becomes clear to us that the high status and significance of this application and prayer and the great need of people to have it fulfilled in their life, as the happiness of a person in this life and the hereafter, depends upon it depends upon what what is
happiness, what do you read that last sentence so because happiness in this life
by this elucidation becomes clear that the highest status and significant the highest status and significance of this application of what supplication and prayer
Dino Serato Mr. Key now of that of swords and fattier. So, when you realize that then you understand how important sorbitol Fatiha really is and making that do I keep going? The intense need for
the seventh And last, but this elucidation becomes clear to us the highest status and significance of this application and prayer and the great need of people to have it fulfilled in their lives as the happiness of a person in this life and the hereafter depends on it depends on that guidance from Allah Subhana who were to add, right? And so you in order for true success in this life in the next the knowledge
has to be intact. And the cost, any bet that will power has to be intact. And facade on fill in is called a shubha. At the corruption of knowledge is called a shubha. Law, a lot of times we translate it as a doubt. Right? And, and corruption of the intention is from the shower, or lusts and whims and desires, right. And so a person has to avoid shubo head and shower. Because they affect or as we talked about here, he listeners and at bat a lower. Alright, so to wrap that up to really understand what you're asking when you're asking for guidance when you're asking for a law to make you from the favorite ones. You're asking the Lord to bless you with beneficial knowledge. And with the willpower
to implement that knowledge and therefore turns into righteous action. So you're asking for beneficial knowledge and righteous actions. Now, the sevens need a block of guidance is always persistent.
In all affairs.
With every breath one takes every moment one lives and the need for having this application be answered. manifests itself in every affair. Be that in all that when we see are all that one leaves? Yeah, I'm
here I am is about to transition. Alright. So.
So he's talking about what the importance of of guidance. Okay? Right. So that's, that's why I mentioned how important sort of till fatty haze. And that's why we asked that is to do is that we make to a loss of parents either multiple times every day, a bare minimum of 17 times, right? Which is more than you eat more than you drink is more than
and when you look at some handler allows a gym to crease things based on need. Right? So everything that you need, there's always are as as, as human beings, we always have more of it. Right? So what's more important, breathing or drinking?
Is there more air or water?
more air? Right? What's more important, eating or drinking? Drinking? And what's there more of water or food? Water? Okay? That that's as it relates to just our physical beings. We look at the dean, the most important thing is guidance, which is why Allah subhana wa, tada has decreed for us to ask for more than anything else.
Understand. So now, everyone kind of wants to go and elucidate for was that what was the translation of elucidate? Explain? He wants to.
He wants to explain to us he really wants to show us why you really need guidance because a lot of times we might say yeah, you know, but we don't really realize how how important guidance is in every single step of your life. Every single thing you do. So he says at the at the beginning there something along the lines of the servant needing guidance at every moment, and every Neff s and every single breath you take, you need guidance from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And this is as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam taught his daughter raviolo to her and her Fatima to say in the morning and in the evening, he was saying to her, he taught her to make this die. Yeah, hi, you you're a
pri motyka esta Leith us li li Shan nee Kula who will lead to kidney L and FC port for Thai. Yeah, hi. Yah, yo. Right. And we know that these are two of the last Pantheon his greatest names, right. Oh everliving Yeah. Hi. Yeah. Hi, Yun, the one who was self sustaining and sustaining of everything else. Right. The self subsistent and the Sustainer everything else? Yeah. How you are you by your by your mercy esta Leith Does anybody know what esta Leith means
was hoath Hey Italy haha
it's it's when you're it's you're seeking relief because there's a dire need for something right.
As the leaf right below hermetica as the leaf I'm seeking your aid and your relief
By Your mercy, bureaucracy ticker history, US li li Shan nee colo. Fix for me, my fair all of it, everything because I'm broken, I need to be fixed. I have affairs that need to be fixed fixed for me everything on the chat de colo
will lead to kidney illa nuptse talk for time and don't leave me to myself for the blink of an eye not for the blink of an eye which is actually quicker than your breath
Don't leave me to myself for even that small period of time. Don't Don't leave me to my own Caprice translate that
your whims and your desires Don't leave me to that.
But but be you be there for me at all times. Right? Well that's a kidney in enough see tougher time. So this is the need that we have for Allah subhana wa tada and his guidance at all times. Female yet t were female, even though claim says that which you do, and that which you don't do, you need a last payment on his guidance. And that part is interesting because and the author did a decent job. I mean, the translator did a decent job there. I think he said something like, what you what you do and what you leave or something like that. You have to understand that because what you leave consciously also needs to have a loss of habitat is guidance.
And this is why we make salata istikhara, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with teaches campaigns like Java 11. And the lesson will teach us is the horror, the way that he would teach us a one a sword or from the poor and say it this way, like a sword or you don't get a chant. You don't get the you know, mixed up a word here and there. No, no, you don't get to do that with the Quran. Likewise, this is how the prophet SAW his son would teach them so naturalistic. Because the reality is, is that
we may believe something is good. But we don't actually know what the outcome of that thing is going to be. Right? We we don't have that kind of eye into the future. And sometimes the reality is we're not really good at weighing the pros and the cons of every situation. And we may think we have it figured out. But a lot of hands Anatole, the prophet I think, was sent in
about the companions was shared with him, fill em for either as empty fatawa can Allah Allah, he told the prophecy some seek advice from or seek the consult the companions, he's the Prophet. He's getting one, Revelation and on but still with that Allah Subhana Allah is teaching him No, you need to consult your campaigns, none of them are as knowledgeable as the Prophet is allowed to say. Right? consult them, shall we don't fill him for either as empty and then if you are determined to do that thing then put your trust and a loss of hematol and this is why many of the other messy that you make that you do is the shower before you do is the hora another words that you seek the
consultation of the people who you know have your best interest who have knowledge of a particular affair, right? And then you make istikhara and then you make this the heart and put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever happens happens, right? But But that is what you do and which you don't do because what you don't do should also be a choice people may try to bait you into doing something, try to get you to say something, try to get you to be involved in some fitness something No. And you choose you say no, no, I'm weighing the situation, I have more knowledge about the details of it or whatever like that. So therefore, I am going to decide either to get involved or
not get involved and whatever that decision is. Put your trust and loss of habitat and seek His guidance. So again, even what you do and what you don't do, should be based on guidance from Allah subhanho wa Tada. And you're going to see now even though claimed by him alongside it is going to go into 10 different
scenarios, if you will, that require guidance from Allah Subhana Allah to show us that we need it in every single aspect of our lives now, number one,
a person whose ignorance made him to believe in matters or to perform actions that contravene go against the guidance of this lead.
He needs to seek a lot of guidance about these matters. In other words, he's doing things just out of ignorance.
He doesn't, he doesn't have knowledge, right. So a person may just do something right and have no knowledge. And therefore they need what they need a loss of hair without his guidance so that they can have the proper knowledge of that particular thing not to a person who is aware of the guidance of this lamb about some matters. But nevertheless, he intentionally goes against it contravenes it, hence, he needs to repent from it, that is the sin. Right? So this person, he knows what he's supposed to do, but he intentionally does not do what he's supposed to do. And therefore, he needs a las pantallas guidance to do what to repent. He needs a lot of guidance so that he can repent from
that no, a person three, a person who lacks guidance on particular matters at both levels, knowledge and action, therefore, he fails to acquire the knowledge and to act upon this purpose accordingly, according to the right way, right. So just imagine, for example, somebody accepts this lamp yesterday. And they heard that there's five daily prayers, right. And then they see you praying at eight o'clock in the morning saying, What's this guy doing? He said, That's called a lot to do. He never heard of it. Right? And so he's, he's not going to pray it. So he doesn't have, he doesn't act according to it, because he doesn't have the knowledge in the first place. This is what number three
is talking about. So a person who doesn't have knowledge and therefore cannot act according to it. So, he needs both he needs the knowledge and he needs guidance for the knowledge and guidance to act according to clear
the law number for a person who has guidance on some matters is incomplete. It is what it stands for that is he is guided only to some aspects of a matter. Hence, he needs to perfect and complete his guidance, right. And so for example, this may be a prime example of this may be the salon itself. So, you know, that's a lot of doors for rock, guys, you know what you're supposed to do in a salon, but maybe you don't know about certain aspects of who should and how to get who sure in the salon. So you have some knowledge, but not, but not perfect knowledge of a particular thing. Just use an example of salon to help by a person whose guidance does not extend to cover the details of the
matter. He has got it too. Hence, he needs guidance on these details. Right? So the difference between number four and five is very minute, okay, but four is talking about you, you have the knowledge to be able to do a particular thing, right? But But your knowledge is incomplete. Number five, he's talking about a person who just has the foundational knowledge and doesn't have enough to complete that act. So for example, he may know that you're supposed to pray five times a day, but he doesn't know when. And he doesn't know how how many rockets each one is. He just has that general knowledge. Like a lot of people, when they first accept this lamp, for example, 966, a person who is
guided to find the directions to the right path. But that requires him to have guidance. Again, let pay attention to number six, pay attention to number six, because I want you to tell me to do I know that you learned earlier that relates to number six. Now, read number six, again started with a person who was guided to find directions to the right path. But that requires some guidance, again, after he embarks upon it. So there's guidance.
That translation is accurate. But what if no claim actually says that there's guidance to the path and there's guidance on the path?
There's guidance to the path and there's guidance on the path, right, go ahead. Because to be guided, that is to find the right path is one thing and to be guided after proceeding in the path is another thing. Okay. So how do we get to New York from here?
Just go up 95 huh? Okay, fine. God 95. Yellow, that's the that's the path. So you can somebody can show you. Okay, that's how you get the 95 and from 95. That's how you get to New York.
Perfect. But then there's guidance on the path. guidance on the path is, well, if I don't have enough gas, how do I know where the next rest stop is? Hmm. Do I know for example, if I'm trying to speed do I know what the speed traps are? Nobody says speed.
is is this path, is it dangerous at certain times of the day?
Is it very crowded at certain times of the day? So I want to avoid those times. All of that is knowledge what on the path is different than being guided to to the path Hmm, so what do I did you learn to kind of see
Sounds like that.
Allahumma Dini was a Disney Allahumma Dini was a Disney as well. Mm hmm. And he was talking about earlier today, right, which is, oh, Allah guide me and give me Sadat. So guidance is like, you know what the path is, right. And so that is being able to complete it and hit your target, and hit your target. Okay.
And then so panela, you know, when you think about when you think about what was said earlier about Sadat, right, which is that there's that arc of motion when you you really aren't still, and just being off just a little bit can take you off a long way. And therefore, you know, that you need a lost parent Alice guidance at all times, and it doesn't stop at getting you to the path, you have to have guidance on the path. And that's part of it. Dina said, also Mr. team as well. Right, it's being guided to the path and being guided on the path. And that's why we have to repeat it at all times.
For example, as the man said, a person may know the directions to a particular town, but he cannot travel the journey. Because to do that, he needs to have guidance on how to make the journey, such as knowing the best time for traveling, knowing the quantity of water needed for it. And knowing where to breath knowing that the quantity of water you need for that trip, that's that's guidance on the path. I mean, this was something that they had to take into consideration, especially those travels through the desert.
If the latter guidance is not acquired, the driver may suffer or die during the trip.
Right? I mean, imagine how many brothers have a Tesla.
Tesla, you got to plug it in. So you don't know where your stations are? on the way.
No gas. That's the that's the point.
So you got you have to even know on your way where to plug in. But I mean, it's, I just was thinking about it. Because when that that's kind of how it is when they have to know how much water to take with them. Because you can't just carry an unlimited quantity of water is it's impossible. Right? So you got to know what's going to get you to the next place, man.
A person needs guidance on some matters. Yes. As he had guidance on such matters in the past, right, so so so panela, just like, you know, you did something. So apparently, it felt like a man was sky high in the past. And you need that again, in the future. So the same way that last time has guided you in the past, you need that guidance to continue to the future now.
Please forgive me. Email was sky high in the past he man Oh, yes, he meant
eight, a person who holds no view on some matters. So he needed believes them to be false nor true. It's he needs to be guided to the right belief about them. Right? So he doesn't really know he's, maybe he's confused or he just, he's not really sure. So he doesn't know what to believe. And this is like the prophet Isaiah select was Sam would make that dry at nighttime before his night prayer
was the minimum to leave a VM and I'll have tea with Nick and guide me to that which they have different over or what that which has been different over guide me to the truth and that which has been different over beatnik and with your permission. Right. So it's a longer do either the privacy center will make it night but the point is asking the last panel China to guide you. And those fears where where people have different
number nine, a person who believes he is guided in some matters, while in fact he is a stray without realizing it. Hence, he needs to change his position, which cannot be done, except by the guidance of the law. Right? So he needs to change his position. Now. What's the difference between number nine and number one?
What's number one say?
So he's just doing stuff, he's ignorant, and he's just doing things. What's the difference between that number nine? Number nine? Isn't he ignorant?
Ah, that's the difference. Number nine is he is ignorant. But he thinks he knows. He thinks he knows. In fact, he's it this way, you know, this is the way our our machine has taught us. Right? So this is this is very common for people who just follow culture or tradition or whatever, and then that they they haven't actually learned all right, but they really believe that this is the truth and a lot of times is how false beliefs and innovations happen.
Number Number Number three, he doesn't even know about its existence at all.
Like we like we gave the example of select to do her wares with number eight, there's, there's a position out there but he doesn't know which one is the truth or, or not.
So he doesn't really have a belief, but he needs to have one not
a person who has gotten into some matters and yet also needs guidance, advising and directing others does that what she was guided to with this will maintain this guidance, ah,
this will maintain his guidance doing what taking the guidance that allows fans out has blessed you with what and taking that to others and sharing that with others what's possible hockey will also be summer, right and they mutually advise one another with the truth and encourage one another to practice the truth and they mutually advise one another with with endurance and patience in that path. Right. Okay. So keep going. Otherwise, he may be deprived from it.
This is because as the known proverb states, like the fault, like the punishment, that is as a person guys and teaches others, a law will guide him and teach him to be come out right the guidance person who guides others to not so so actually the statement here it says like the fault like the punishment that the Arabic says alexza uhlmann, Jean Solomon and Giselle minjin Solomon, the closest idiomatic phrase that we have in English is probably you reap what you sow, but that's usually used in a negative context. And so, a an inexact or word for word translation is the recompense is of the same genus as the deed. In other words, the reward will be of the same type as the deed. So, if your
deed is you helping to guide others, then your reward from Allah is that what that he guides you,
you get back what you put in okay. So, that is as a person guides and teaches others below guide him and teach them to become a right the guided person who guides others, right. This is a rank that was narrated in this application of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam who said being lazy along Adonis with the beauty of a man right the guidance guide others do not let us go astray or the other distract. Let us be peaceful with your supporters and belligerent with your enemies make us love those whom you love for they love you and let us show against those disobey your command. Now that Heidi that that
as is narrated is is not authentic, but there's a the the first part of the duet there's another narration that supports that and it is the first part which is law Medina who that's a machete.
Our lawmakers from the guide who guide others that part is authentically reported from the Prophet it is alive to us today. We have to stop there because eight minutes over time
but we did have the law we we made it pretty good. So let's let's go over this quickly. What is the root cause of harm befalling people according to him in okay in wasting time in and a corrupted heart and those things that corrupted heart? Okay, so d is the root cause of harm befalling people talk about lefleur. And how, in light of the favorite ones mentioned and soda and fatty, five, the favorite ones are those who were
tired. Let's go Let's go to number three. And then we'll go back to number two, the author mentions three qualities of those who are favored by law, what are they, they know the truth, they follow the truth and and they ask Allah Subhana Allah for for guidance, right. So, what relation does this have to the straight path? How is this connected to the straight path?
Right, because the ciloxan booster team, right is for those who have those qualities and who avoid what those things and number two lovely and he listeners because lafleur or excuse me, Laughlin Hauer because he listened is takes you away from beneficial knowledge and how it takes you away from beneficial or righteous actions tell you the author highlights 10 ways for which we are always in need of guidance recall for I'll let you do that with a partner, inshallah tada because we had to start with low items along with some robotic and then Amina Mohammed Subhana. Colombia, we have to catch our late night and I still couldn't go until we lick
