Not handily law madona Stein who want to stop when Julian fusina was Satya Marina, Mayor de la ville mo de la mejor de la, la la la la la. Watch the who la sharika was shadow Anna Mohammedan. Abdo solo solo la alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa send them into steam and because he only the Yama Deen Muhammad want to begin just with the reminder that we have to
be cognizant of this blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala added to come together Phoebe Tim and boo to learn to come together and one of the houses of a loss of Hannah with Anna studying his book and even though this is even all claims book is based on the book of a loss of Hannah who was had and as you'll see, and as you have seen, and I mean, several is gonna claim goes very deep into explaining like how to become an Imam and a dean. That's based on the both the I in the end of so little for crying
with the believers ask Allah subhana wa tada with Jana tokina. Eman and make us an Imam for the matcha tea and the eye and sorted such the salt is such there were a loss of Hannah who was added says what Gianna mean home imitatia Duna VM Nina, LEM suburu can will be it now you can own
we may from amongst them, he memes
guiding by our command when they were patient number savara. What can be it now up know where they are your team and our x our science. So
the point is that this is a tremendous blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Especially, and we should see it especially because we Muslims, in a place where the majority of the people are not Muslims. And their hope is in a new president.
And our trust is in a loss of habitat and our hope is with a loss of habitat. And whatever is going to happen is going to happen by the will of Allah subhana wa tada and we have confidence in it. And we find comfort in that. Even though we may be testing. We know that ultimately what Allah Subhana Allah decrees for us is what's best for us.
So, the reality is, is that the comfort that we find through our Deen is not something that other people can find.
It's not something that they have. And all, a lot of times we don't realize the blessings that Allah has added the favors that are lost parents, Allah has given us.
I mean, that's just the nature of man. And a lot of times we don't realize the blessing until it's gone.
And that and that's what everything that is with everything. I mean, most of us, I mean, it's just our reality. We don't think along When's the last time you think the last pants island for the ability to breathe without an apparatus.
Right? We take it for granted. take it for granted that we breathe, that we see that we hear we take these things for granted. We take it for granted that we're able to walk. Right? Man lots of hands Atta, give us our strength and our power and our faculties until we die. I mean,
the but the reality is, is that some people don't have that. And some of us have gone through and we've experienced times where we don't have those things the way we had them before. If you get an ear infection or your ears climbing, and you start realizing how important it is to hear. If something happens to one eye, then you start realizing so panela you need both eyes for depth perception and if you can, can you drive with just one eye?
These abilities, again, a lot of hands on has given us so many favorites. The greatest of those favorites is a man that he's guided us to Islam and he man
and we definitely don't want to lose that favor ever lost. Fantastic. Keep us firmly standing until we die. The the reality though, is that so many people in fact, the overwhelming majority of the people who are around us, I mean not necessarily around us, maybe our families and so far, but I'm saying that the people that we live amongst, they don't have that favor of Islam.
And we're commanded to look to those who are below
us so that we don't belittle the favors of Allah Subhana Allah. But when it comes to faith, when it comes to Dean, we're supposed to look to those who are above us so that we can try to compete. Not so that we envy them, but so that we can try to compete. But again, just recognize in the favor of Islam, sometimes all you have to do is just look around and see how misguided people are how, how their lives are all over the place. And they scattered,
because they don't have that focus of deep. So it's just a reminder to panela to be able to come together and study together and learn as a great blessing from lost power dad.
By law, we're gonna get the juices flowing with some a new way to ask questions, we got review, and we got new. All right. So can you pose the review questions?
What things prevent happiness? And how can they be countered by and this is review, this is review what things prevent happiness.
I mentioned two main things not
So so they they were they were two things, two broad categories that
even Okay, and mentioned
that they prevent happiness. You remember?
Okay, a shoe will hat and the shadow What? type? So shubho hack mean, what
we usually translated as doubt, but what give him give me a little more information about that.
What down? Like, I'm not sure whether I should eat cereal oatmeal. What?
Again, raise your voice that was good.
Something that is attributed to the religion. Right? That looks plausible, right? But it's not true. Okay, so this is a shuba. So again, needed to be something we're talking about doubts that people cause about the religion attributing it to to the religion, right.
So, how do you counter that? What do you
what is that counter with?
knowledge, right? And then when, okay, and mentioned specifically knowledge of four things, what are they
knowledge of what benefits you and the path toward to that which benefits you and knowledge of that which will harm you and the path that leads to that which harms you? This? Don't forget this stuff. This is not stuff that you want to learn and forget, because every step of your life has to be built on that. And we have to be asking ourselves at every point, what is this here that I'm doing? Is it beneficial or not? Or is it like just right there in the middle? Right? Okay.
And what's the second thing so the first thing was shubo, hacked and ignorance in general. And then the second thing is, is shadow wet, Shadow wet. Okay. So in other words, those lowly desires that that contradict the commands of Allah subhana wa Tada.
Okay, how do you counter that?
Right, so weak willpower is actually the disease. It's, it's what prevents happiness, ignorance and weak willpower, right? And that can that can also go back to Shibboleth and shadow. So ignorance is one and the second thing is weak willpower. And how do you counter weak willpower? What is it that count? Is it not?
discomforting fear fought upon Missouri. Yeah. And what else? Or an intense love, right, one or the other? And that's and that's basically what they call an attorney with the scholars have termed a total zebu, what total heap right? Meaning that thing which is encouraging you to do good or discouraging you from doing something that is, that is evil. And this was the way of Allah has added throughout the Quran encouraging us with Jenna, scaring us with the fire and it's the way of the prophet Isaiah slots with Sam and his teaching of the companions fight. Do so those two things prevent happiness, ignorance and weak willpower? And they are countered with knowledge of those four
things and encountered with an intense love or a a discomforting fear type. What are the two matters even though km says that you must know an entity
internalize in order to be a sensible person
smoother, says Mirage, are
they? Alright, I'll bring it back.
Let me see, I don't remember what page is home. But
in any event,
the the two things are as follows. The first is to recognize
that the heart cannot have an equal love for Allah subhana wa tada in the hereafter.
And at the same time shahadat
that love can't can can't be combined in the same heart, one of them is going to overtake us more to overtake the other. All right, so the sensible person has to know that. And number two has to recognize that if it prefers its desires, over a loss of habitat, then the result is going to be detrimental and devastating
score to have devastating consequences.
All right, and the sensible person has to keep that
in their mind all the time. And the Akhil mo claim says
he says that the hospital after the I need the special quality that the alcohol has, right and so a person in order to be a sensible person, right and not to just be like an animal
does what prefers that which is going to be bringing the most benefit over that which is beneficial, but doesn't bring the most benefit and also avoids one, that which is most harmful. So they do that which is least harmful. To avoid that which is more harmful in the event that they can't avoid both clear light.
All right, what four principles lie at the core of the dean mentioned a hadith that supports your answer four principles, values there.
That's the Hadeeth now, so the Prophet it is salatu salam said Whoever
loves for Allah hates for Allah gives for long with holds for Lost Planet Allah has perfected he man. The entirety of the deen revolves around those four loving for law, hating for law, giving for law and withholding for law. Explain what it means to hate for Allah. Does this necessitate violence?
Let's keep going you you you're on point
okay. So whatever lots of hands Allah hates from sin and transgression, then what?
Then we are supposed to also hate it for you.
Do you know i that talks about that?
Allah Subhana Allah when describing the Rashi Dune, the rightly guided in the Quran, and sawtell hoogenraad he says will cover la comme la cofra worldfood suka wallacea that Allah has what made despise to you all.
Cover right, which is unbelief.
woelfel souk two major sins while is yet which are lesser sins. Okay.
Well Kava is a common code for one foo coalition hula eco merace do so. The Rashid in the real believers are going to what they want to despise Cofer and they're going to despise major sins and and the lessons
Does this necessitate violence?
I bring this up because there are people who bring this shubha right, which is the singular of shubho hat. They attribute to Islam, that this al Qaeda, that we love for law that we hate for law that we're loyal to Allah, right and we shun this loyalty, and voila, well, Bara will have both Villa villa. They say that this is the root of
Violence in Islam.
And this is ridiculous. It really is it really it Because ultimately, ultimately, everybody there is not a human being that has a, you know, saying that same, right it doesn't have, you know, severe mental issues, except that they love some things and they hate other things.
Because it's impossible to love something and not hate it's opposite
how exactly how would you know one from the other? Right? And if you truly love Allah subhana wa tada and you know, that Allah hates Xena and that Allah hates your intoxicants and that then we also because of our love of a loss of hemorrhage, and then we also have to hate those things.
All right, so
it's inshallah i don't i don't know that will go much further into that particular concept in this book. But it's a concept that does need to be flushed out and unpacked because the reality is, is that the entirety of our Deen and the perfection of faith does rely on In fact, we will read something from sacred santaniello haimo law that does talk about this a bit tight, read our new questions. These are questions that I want you to be able to answer by the end of today's lesson be in the light and not new questions. What does perfecting demand mean? According to entertain the
second law informs us that the solar deselect the slot the slot prevents changeable and evil deeds. Explain how some people pray but still do evil acts understand the question. Okay, good. What is the first matter needed for Salah to become the joy of your eye?
Lastly, what is the difference between
and class? Explain your answer using textual evidence. Explain your answer using textual evidence No.
Alright, you gotta you gotta focus. Alright. So what is the difference between setup and EClass? For those of you who have an idea what is said?
Sorry, truthfulness. And what is a class sincerity? Are you okay? We'll get there.
All right. So, inshallah, what you'll see is today
is the 27th of October, and we're going to cover we're going to start with the six steps that are towards in enjoying your prayer towards the prayer becoming kurata Anan lakhiani. for it to become the joy of your eye. And the first two are EClass and civic sincerity and truthfulness. Right. And we'll talk about what that means in shallow tide. However, there are just some things that we did not cover from last week, we're going to wrap that up in shallow Tada. And notice that next week, as you may have mentioned, epsilon, that the we're going to have class on Sunday the lights on so there won't be any class next Tuesday, the third of November, right, the class will be moved up and it
will be on Sunday, the same times. Okay, so shake it will be a 530 and this class will be a seven o'clock in the light,
light. And don't forget that the classical back next Sunday. No,
it's like read from here Shall I tell you actually actually go ahead and read from the religion revolves around four rules again, even though we started we did read this last week just to keep the continuity of the thought. We're going to start again on page from the bottom of page 40 where it says religion revolves around these four rules. Now, religion revolves around four rules. Religion revolves around these four rules, namely love
and hope they should say
hey, boo, which necessitates the following actions have been refrain and abandon a thought and you should you can change that cue because torque is what the calf yeah
that which one owns and withholding that is refraining from dispersing
that being said type so so we have a horrible one will do while air pause one minute right so there's there's giving
just withholding type offline is loving and hating and we did talk about
Love and hate for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada in some detail when we read from what book does anybody remember?
compendium of wisdom and knowledge, Mr. Luna will become by logic, right? So loving for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada
just it's important to note
Subhanallah that there there are many, actually many a hadith from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to talk about the virtue of loving for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah And actually, by by reading those ahaadeeth, you start to get a better idea of what it means to love for the sake of a loss of hands on and so on one of the Hadith the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Sam mentioned that a man was going to a town to visit his brother, and Allison hands out of appointed an angel, who asked him does this person that you're visiting, have any favor that he owes you and you're going to get repaid for something for a favor that he owes you? And he said no, in the in New hibou Villa, he
said no, except that I love him for the sake of Allah. And then the angel said, I'm a messenger of Allah to you, to let you know that Allah Subhana Allah loves you like you have loved him. Right? Another word is your relationship with this person whom you love for the sake of Allah parents out it is not based on mutual masala dunya we are that there is some, any mutual benefit that you all get from each other mutual doing your benefit, right, that you get from each other. It's it's based on and it's not because the person is from your tribe, they may be from your tribe, right? But it's not because of that. And the way that you can measure it is that when you see that person being more
obedient to Allah subhanaw taala that your love for that person grows and increases and if you see them being disobedient to a loss of hematology that your love for them decreases right it doesn't just stay the same. And it's not based on if they yeah and this is also a test is also a test for for when you give for the sake of a loss pantalla when you give for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada right because this is this is what he meant is loving for Allah and hating for long giving for love withholding from Allah for Allah. When you give for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah you're not expecting anything in return.
In the man nuclear mo Khun Li YG Hilaire,
we only feed you what seeking the face of Allah. Lan UI domain comm jazza. And while Ashu Cora, we don't want any reward, or thanks from you,
let that sink in. If you give somebody if you give something to somebody, because you want them to appreciate it, that's not given for a lot.
That's something that you have to realize, you may give somebody to something and they don't even realize that it was you hungry, hungry, they don't realize that it was you, they gave it to him. Now, that doesn't mean these things have to be
and you have to be taken in light of the broader subject, you may be trying to teach your children the importance of gratitude. And so you tell them say thank you, and you know those type of things. But that's not why you're doing it. That's not why you're giving, that's not the motive.
The motive is for a loss of habitat is such that if the person does not appreciate it,
it's okay. Because you're not looking for a reward from them. Thank you as a reward from them. That's a reward, learn only domain comm Jessa and valeggio Cora, we do not want any kind of reward, we don't want any compensation.
Even that thank you is a form of compensation.
You know why? Because it makes you feel good. It's a form of compensation.
made you feel good, and you wanted to feel good.
And this is why some handler and some people they look and they say all these people, they do all this good, you know, why would they be punished by loss of data? Why are they doing good? And what does good mean? Are they doing it for their own What? for their own selves? Because they because they want to feel good?
Is that why they doing it? Are they doing it for a loss? And when you do something for a loss mentality, you will feel good.
But that's not why you're doing it and you see how it class is a very, very subtle, subtle
You know, emotion or notion.
Right? So, again, giving for a law and withholding for law. Meaning that it may be something that you really, somebody comes to you with an investment idea is, hey, look, man, you can make a lot of money doing this,
you start thinking about doesn't feel right to you, or at the very least is a gray area. So you withhold, he comes back to you A week later, says, Look, man,
I'm telling you, you can make a lot of money I put in 500, I'm already at 50,000
and you still don't invest, you withhold for Allah because you don't know if it's permissible or not.
You might miss the boat might come to you two months later and say, you know, we got to fetch when it's allowed and everything, it's okay. I didn't know it was hella, I missed that boat because I'm withholding for Allah, you understand? This is what it means to withhold, I mean, this is an example of withholding for the sake of a loss of habitat. And likewise, me, which is which is here it says in withholding that is refrain from dispersing. And in other words, it may also mean that somebody may ask you for wealth and you don't like what they go into, you don't feel like what they spend and no one is permissible. And so you withhold
right. And, and this is actually for the betterment
and he Subhana Allah, it's, it's amazing to see. I mean, sometimes you have to call it stuff like it is. It's amazing to see Muslim parents, Muslim parents, who will post their children's prom pictures on a Facebook pages. How does that work? How did they How did they get a prom dress? How do you get the suit for the prime?
And when did when did Muslims start? When did that become okay for Muslims didn't? What what decade did that become halau?
Like, how does that work?
So, here is where a person has to weigh with whole for the sake of Allah spent Allah? No, I'm not giving you money for that.
And whatever that means, whatever type of backlash that's gonna mean and you know, whatever they whatever way the child feels about it maliciousness. Okay, sorry. Sorry, not sorry. Because we can't be involved in that. You know what I mean? There's a lot that obviously leads up to that.
I mean, there's, there's a, there's a lot that leads up to a child even believing that that's okay.
And there's there's there's a lot of negligence that's in place to get to that point, you know, well, I'm Stein like so
here the author is talking about the been revolving around love and hate. That love and that hate
will necessitate and effect is really all stems from love because that love for lost pants out in the seat necessitates that you hate some things. And then the love and the hate that are actions of the heart will manifest themselves on a limb so you'll spend on certain things that you normally wouldn't spend on if your love or loss pans out. You're not gonna spend on Hajj you're gonna spend on an ombre you're not gonna like who that's not a tourist attraction.
And from the hitmen and some of the scholars have mentioned from the hikma
of hygiene I'm gonna be into Mecca is that there is nothing in Mecca
other than the Kava I mean it's not a tourist attraction isn't a waterfalls there is no there is nothing that you could want from there other than that, out of it is I mean, even go for those of you who see what's what's going out of absolutely nothing.
it's like a parking lot. Literally, right. So you spend you spend because of what you love for last time, right? These are things that you spend you give for that for the sake of Allah
tada and then you withhold that's another action withholding refraining for the sake of a loss of data because of that love that you have for loss of hands on it and your hate for disobeying him subpoena who would read a statement from shake Listen
it How is a man perfect time What is he meant because all of you should be studying with Sheikh
Mohammed. So what is
What is the man
speak speak up beconfident Baraka lo fi. Belief in the heart
action with the lens and statement on the tongue. Okay hamdulillah. So Eman is both statement and, and action and is the statement of the heart meaning your, your beliefs. And it is the statement that is with the tongue, especially the Shahada, which brings you into Islam, like the law and it's the actions of the heart
which go beyond your beliefs. So the actions of the heart is your love for loss mentality, your reliance upon him, you're turning to him, right? Your fear of him somehow metallic, you're hoping him Okay, so it's actions of the heart and actions of the limbs type. So statement and action or, as you mentioned, belief in the heart statement on the tone and actions of the limbs, tiny house, a man perfected let's see what shake was, Stan says, anytime he
said, quote, his love and hate, which are actions of the heart are full of law, and his giving and withholding, which are actions of the limbs of all law. This indicates the perfection of his love for law, right? If all of those the actions of the heart and the actions of the limbs are for loss, fantastic, then this indicates the perfection of his love for Allah because it all stems from loving a loss of habitat right now, which points to the perfection of Aha. So
when you are when your love of Allah Subhana Allah is perfect, then it shows that this points to the perfection of Amen, right? This is because the perfection of faith means that the entirety of the game is full of love. Again, this is because the perfection of Amen, means that the entirety you have made the deen and the commodity man and your coin a dino Kullu lilla that the entirety of the deen is for Allah subhanho wa Tada. Now, that is that is the worship of Allah alone, without any part and worship, it should just say comprises there's a typo there. And worship comprises total love
with total humility, but where does where do we take that definition of worship?
The complete love and complete humility right from when we study that it will do the same to him all the time. So, again, understanding here, that perfection of a man means that the deen and its totality is for Allah Subhana who was added that you don't
associate any partners with him in that?
Meaning what that there's total love and total humility to Allah Subhana who what's at play, you
go back to the book here.
That being said, Whoever ensures that being said, wherever ensures all that is sincerely for law sake, whoever ensures all that. Yeah, like all of that, like all of those for his faith will be perfect. And whoever fails to ensure either all of the set aspects or for law sake, his faith becomes effective accordingly and understood. So in accordance to where where the deficiency is either in love for loss sake or hate for his sake or given for his sake, or withholding for his sake, in accordance to that he man will be deficient.
The intelligent means that whatever brings forth pleasure, contentment and peace is superior to what we merely like or love. Right So again, we're going back to the concept and it'll be built out a little bit there's a difference between what loving something and then that thing being Courtois terrain and LEC, and being the joy of your eye that being your ultimate pleasure, right? is the difference between the two and choral attain, right which is the joy of your eyes actually a level above loving something
that is performing the Salah brings forth pleasure, contentment and peace to the devotees who love the law in this world due to the fact that Salah includes communicate communicating with the only one to whom the hearts are content and exuberant. Alright, number one, so Salah includes communicating with a loss of Hannah Hawa Tada, yeah, souls are settled and minds are at peace. Right. It allows them to bask in the grace of remembering it. It gets their hearts in the ocean of humility.
submission to His Majesty. And it draws the near to Him, particularly during the state of prostration, which is the closest point a believing slave can be to a law. All right. So there was a little poetic license that the translator took. These are the four points here. That eminent claim mentions why salaat is the quarter Rite Aid of the believer. So he mentions for things that one salon includes intimate communication with the loss of Hannah who would add and where is that especially felt?
Were in the salon is that especially felt intimate communication with a lot.
All right. I'll bring it closer. There's a discussion. So little fattier allies was responding. You say Alhamdulillah galantamine, Hamid any Abdi? My servant has praised me.
R Rahman r Rahim f nalli. Abdi, and my servant has extolled me madico Medina jedynie I have the right so these this is actually at communication with the loss of habitat. Second thing he mentions is that there's the bliss that is found and remembering Allah and Abby dickwella turtleman in localu is not with the remembers of a lot of the heart finds, it finds rest and tranquility and happiness, right. There's also serenity found in submitting to a loss of habitat, and you won't find any peace without submission. Without because, because otherwise, you're gonna be a constant struggle. And if you're struggling against the law, you're not gonna win. The only way to win is to submit
when you submit you'll find that piece
and that one is closest to a loss of habitat and prostration. So this is that concept of drawing near to a loss pantalla so this is these are the four reasons why even okay and mentions that Salah is quarter line for the believer, I want to I want to mention something that some of the other scholars have mentioned, as well. And it I think that it's it precedes these, these four. And if we look at why, in fact, was salon so beloved to the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam. It goes back to what we talked about, and that is that there was nobody that loves a loss of hands either more than more than the profit is allowed to sit and so he loves what Allah loves.
And is there any ritual act of worship that Allah Subhana Allah loves more than Salah? No. So that was the thing that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam loved the most because of his love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is one of those things that shows us that we have to even when things when it may be difficult, we have to make ourselves love what Allah loves, and make ourselves hate would allow Hades and teach that to those who are around us, because some of this is taught, some of it may come naturally, and others may have to be taught. Right? Some people naturally despise certain things that are Haram in Islam. Right? Or you. Most people, they are things that you
naturally don't like, right? Like, I don't like the way cigarette smells, I don't, okay, fine. Like you have a natural aversion to certain things that are not okay. Right. But then there are other things that you like, even though even though they may be impermissible, so you have to, you have to force yourself not to like them, not just that you avoiding, again, and this is another important point, that's something that we have to stress, whoever it is that that is under our, you know, responsibility because Allah Subhana Allah has made us responsibility responsible for ourselves. And most cases we're responsible for other people as well. And responsible for the education that they
hate. What is displeasing to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So again, the concept of Salaam, being what and notice that the prophet SAW his son didn't say and select is the joy of my eye, he says with God, let's correlate to it for Salah, the Salah has been made the joy of mine meaning meaning that what Allah Subhana Allah blessed him with that Allah gave him that it was given to him right.
this meaning manifests in the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said, overlap
some of the people to the salon so we can be a comfort and ease by frame. Right and the actual Hadid the actual wording is Yeah, VLAN Aki masala, od nebia which you'll see hear the battle right now. Pause the timer for the prayer optimists Allah give us comfort by give us comfort one
by the salaat
Okay, notice what I was gonna say here, man. The statement, this statement informs us that the comfort of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is found in the Salah when he finds peace, contentment, and pleasure to, as He also stated, compare this state with those who say, Let us pray so we can relieve ourselves from the burden of Salah. And there's a big difference is a big difference between the one who says, Bring us comfort, what through the prayer, and the person who says let us get the prayer out of the way so that we can be comfortable.
let's get it over.
Let's get it out the way right.
So so there's a there's a big difference is a big difference between how the people who are devoted to a hands on approach to prayer and those who are heedless and neglectful and how they approach the prayer and notice that they still pray.
What about the ones who don't pray at all or often on sometimes right? lumps that no? Oh, you're truly bocce finds peace, contentment and pleasure in the salon, while the heedless and neglectful is deprived of all of that. In fact, such a person finds a lot a difficulty and a burden that makes him disturbed and troubled when praying and makes him feel as to be standing on embers. This is why such a person prefers the law than that is very short and quick. And he finds no peace. You know what's interesting? So panela, I want you to think about this.
What's it What's a person is trying to pray real quick, they just want to get it over. And after they recite sort of some fancy what is one of the most frequent sores that they ever say.
Besides Kula sort of philosophy, he said,
notice to panela and I find this very ironic man and it's almost like a last minute I was establishing the hood Japan.
They're reciting solar to Lhasa, which is what Allah Subhana Allah is squaring by two interpretations both neither one of them is mutually exclusive, but swearing by time letting you know that you are at loss right. Or swearing by a loss of time which means the time is running out basically a day is almost over you don't really have much time left in this dunya
reminding you right there's
certainly a lot of unhappy the logbook. Yeah, let's see if
it's like wow, if you actually thought about what you were saying when you recite well awesome actually slow you down, allow you to enjoy the salaat Elon, Edina M and he had right thinking about that what's COVID heathcoat so also the sub have some summer evening SLI. Right, slow it down. Think about what's going on because this might be your last one you know like that a lot. So it's it's, it's interesting is interesting. This is why such a person prefers us a lot again, notice that who's being condemned here. Notice who's being critiqued, not the one who doesn't pray.
Well, who does pray but they pray like this, which is which is scary for the people who don't pray at all along with Stein, this is why such a person
prefers a salad that is very short and quick and
the very bottom of the page.
This is why such a person prefers a salad that is very short and quick and he finds no peace pleasure as he finds no peace because it meaning because he finds no peace
and contentment in
the end if a person finds peace, contentment and pleasure in a matter one will find it too difficult to depart from that he is a panelist sometimes you'll you notice this like in Ramadan for example you like Man, I wish he wouldn't stop praying. Right so hello Eman is Hi. You're enjoying the worship of Allah Italia tasting some of the sweetness of faith. And the man says hello excellent. You like man, he could have went on another 10 pages I would have been fine. Right? So panela because you
it has become a
quarter of a time.
It's become that joy that you're looking for. Yeah. While on the other hand, a person whose heart is empty from the love of the law and the Hereafter is inflicted with the love of this worldly life and its pleasures, find Salah to be the most difficult thing to do, and despises the most when it is long overdue, although he's helped me despite the fact that he's healthy. And what's what's wrong with the site. He's healthy. He has sufficient free time.
He's not busy with anything else. And you'll see some of those people, they get mad at the man because the man pray to, you know, salada was, you know, 15 minutes or something like that, and they lay iron, and then it stand outside the machine for 20 minutes talking to his friend.
time if you had something to do, like, you know, that would be understandable. And yes, any man does have to realize that, you know, he should not be a fitna for the people who are praying behind them and so on and so forth. And, and that's also something you need some messages are known, they know that they pray longer, and people go there, because the salaat as long as that's what they want, you know, Mashallah. And then, you know, but the point is, I mean, you may have had to take a middle ground. But still, I mean, some people this is this is just they just want to get slot over with, you know, Willemstad. Yeah, it ought to be known to that the salaah brings forth peace, pleasure and
contentment to the heart and mind is the type of slot that consists of six elements, right? So.
So even though Chi M is going to talk about is going to talk about the six elements that are necessary to be combined the combined meaning what, you have to have each one of those six, in order for salaat, to become kurata, in a lack in order for it to become that joy of your eye.
And that's what we're going to be talking about for the next, this class and the next, the following two classes and shallow time, we're going to cover those six elements. And then, you know, maybe at some other point, we can talk about who should in detail. But the sixth panel, I did a tremendous job. And in bringing these six together, to sum up what he already said, the differences and approaching the prayer is what you'll find here, right? You see that those who are devoted to Allah, they find pleasure in salaat, right?
They use the select to draw closer to Allah Subhana Allah, and they don't want to like to end.
It doesn't select doesn't feel long and drawn out to them.
Those who are heatless and neglectful select for them as difficult and burdensome. Well in the hair, what, look AbilityOne Illa Allah hace the supplies could be as heavy as burdensome except for those who are described as having who should.
This person prays to get it over with, they're not using a prayer to draw closer to a loss pans out for the man to increase it? No, they're praying simply because they need to check it off the list. So liability, they know they owe it so lots of hands on, I'm just trying to get it out the way.
All right. And for them, the faster the select the better.
The faster the supply, the better. And they don't care if the man any third record, they can't tell whether he received fat or not. It was so quick and they don't care.
Just a low highlight.
And that's the attitude.
We're gonna go pray over there because they you know, he man, Mashallah he gets it in a row.
It gets it it gets it over with, right alongside and so on he as we as we look to the six elements that evitable claim is going to talk about, we have to realize that when we pray,
it doesn't mean that we're getting the full reward from a loss of habitat. In fact, the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said, as we see here in upledger, Leon salifu, woman coochie Bella, who, in solidarity to throw her hair to the end of the Hadith, the prophet SAW a man finish this Salah, right? while only a 10th of his prayer has been recorded for him a ninth and eighth, a seventh, a sixth, a fifth of fourth, a third half and then a prophecy songs that.
Now, some of the scholars have mentioned he stopped at a half because it's rare that a person will actually get more than that.
In other words, you have to strive, you have to strive. And remember that the first thing that you're going to be asked about from your actions on your piano is what is your supply?
Either solid hat if the supply is correct, it was done properly. It was done on time the way it's supposed to be.
What if then this person will be successful and will have
attain salvation for flower Nadia
and he'll he'll be successful and he'll attain salvation focuses on a salad and if the salad is not correct
and guess what the net person is going to be in for a questioning from Allah subhanho wa Taala
and is going to expose themselves to the punishment of a loss of habitat so making sure and this is from the fear of imminent claim Rahim Allah you'll notice he talked about becoming an Imam and the deen he talked about guidance he talked about knowledge he talked about and then he gives all this focus to supply Why do you think that is?
Do you think is four Why Why? As you'll see the next six he's gonna mention these six things with some detail. Why is why this focus on salon
because because a lot does separate the believer from the non believer and because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam didn't say about any other activity bad did that it was his quote or die. Right that it was made to be the his enjoyment in it. It's repetitive. So it comes at the very least five times a day.
At the very least, so it deserves attention.
How many times do you pays a cat?
Once a year? How many times do we do Ramadan? once a year, obviously for a month but once a year? How many times do you have to make hides once in a lifetime? Right? Salah daily, five times perfecting that working on its perfection, you're going to hear what you hear over the next three weeks. And inshallah tada you're going to start implementing some of what you hear.
And then you're going to fall off a little bit because the nature of the human being and you're going to have to go back and do it again and start over. But that's the blessing of Salah is five times a day. So you keep pushing yourself. Keep pushing yourself to you get to the point. As some of the self said gehad to Nazi anarchy, MLA or APA MLA ish Lena center, pushed myself struggle with the night prayer for 20 years, 20 years. It was a struggle, so much alike, to be here actually in a Senate. And then I found its sweetness and enjoyment. And it became my delight for 20 years. Right? This this prayer, it's something that we we have to struggle to get to that point where Allah
Subhana Allah is writing for us the entirety of the prayer, because we push it ourselves and allows Pantheon is blessing us. He sees that we're being true to him. And so Allah Subhana Allah is true to us. And being true to him. So the coup for Sadako moolah. All right. So, this is
why it is so important that we emphasize and these six elements that I am what I am allowed to add is going to mention. And also here, also here, it will come in his way. He talks about the importance of perfecting prayer. So again, we're not talking about just simply the importance of prayer. We're talking about the importance of what perfecting prayer which is another level type.
The servant has to stand in front of a law a standing in front of him during the prayer and a standing in front of him on the day of meeting with him. Whoever stood for the first standing, giving it's due right the other meeting will become easier for you. If you if your prayer is good and this like that meeting with the laws pans out to be easy.
Right? It's going to be based on how you stay because you're going to stand in front of him your mobile camera wherever you stand in front of him in this life and that you're going to stand in front of him your monkey so if it's if the standing and this life is good, you did your best you were striving to perfect your prayer than that standing in front of Allah subhana wa tada be in the light it will be much easier. Now. Whoever took his took the stand in lightning stand in this life. They took it lightly and did not perform it with its due right. The other standing will become difficult and harsh for him. It's gonna be a very long day.
The most high said and during the night, prostrate yourself to Him and glorify him a long night through barely. Those disbelievers love the present life of this world and put behind them a heavy day. Fresh to the level now Amina lady first student who was a bit who Leyland to Lila first jeu de la who and the night. Some of the scholars have have said that this means the mother of and a share prayers with Sabir Leyland to Whelan meaning and pray to Him the 200 prayer or Tamil late the night prayer
in the hell are those disbelievers they love the life of this where you hit buena lagina una hora home Yeoman Sakina. And so it is their preference for this life over the next life that is going to put them in a very miserable state in the next life, which is permanent, and this life is temporary. So people who prefer the temporary over the permanent people have not given their intellect it's do Allah Subhana Allah has given us intellect. It doesn't really make sense.
It doesn't make sense that we would prefer the permanent, excuse me that we would prefer the temporary over the permanent. And again,
the better we get at perfecting the prayer, the better the effects of the prayer. Right. And this is a kind of goes back to the question that was asked at the beginning. Eliza Joseph in the salata. 10 handle fashion he will monka that Salah
prohibits shameful deeds and evil acts. Right? In her and in fashion, he will Mancha.
Okay? The reality is, however, that there are people who pray and still do fascia and Wonka. I still do shameful deeds, they still do things that are evil. And that's because and that is because as many of them have seen have mentioned.
And amongst them, according to be Rahim, Allah Allah He says that this is the position of the mahaki Poonam in Allah and meaning I need those scholars who have have done their due diligence and research and are of the elite level of scholars that their position in this particular manner is that the salon
that prohibits fascia and mooncup, or shameful and evil deeds is the saliva that a person has perfected. So in other words, in other words, it is that salaat Will you stand in front of a loss of habitat in your heart, being in your heart being in the prayer, you praying as the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam pri, both inwardly and outwardly. And when you do that, and you stand and you stood for Salatin,
the effects of the prayer of that prayer, stay with you until selected and then you pray. So lots of thought and the effects from that prayer of that attachment to a loss of him with the idea of saying Allahu Akbar and realizing that he is Akhbar and saying, soo Han or be Alavi Subhana, Allah bl Allah and that, that's the look, think about it like this.
When you have a meal, when you have a meal, and you're you've eaten too, you're satisfied. Do you need to eat again an hour later?
Two hours later, I can last you for a while, right? Because you've gotten you're not even your fill, even if you've just gotten enough to satisfy likewise with salatu salam is the nourishment of the soul. And so you pray, you pray, and it gives you what you need to prevent you from old fashion or Mancha until the next Salah comes and you pray that one and the effects last last with you until the next slide comes understood. So it prevents evil and shameful deeds, either because the effects from the last one is still with you. Or you're thinking about the fact that I need to pray in an hour I need to pray in an hour and a half and so it's preventing you from
evil and shameful deeds. Now, that is the best level.
There is a level below that.
And that is the person who is prevented from shameful and evil deeds as they're going and coming from salon says they're going to the salon
They're prevented from their from from any shameful and evil acts and as they, as they come in back on to the next line of business or whatever they're doing. And there are other people, it's only the salon itself when they're prevented from fashion.
And only while they're in the summer as soon as the salon is over, they go back to so their to evil DS.
And then there are other people that even in the salon, they thinking about her
while they're praying, while the other winner.
And all of that is based on the ability to perfect, those six elements that Evan Williams is going to talk about. In other words,
when a person is deficient in any of them, then their prayer is going to be deficient and there's going to be a deficiency in the prayer preventing them from shameful and evil deeds. So you
Bismillah to you. So how do we make the salaat the joy of our eyes? How many steps six, six steps in class was CIT qu and nos, when we tear berets we'll see that. When they say when maraca mesh hadn't been or mesh added toxic. So these are the six and I'm not going to translate them now we just go step by step inshallah we're going to cover number one and two today in the lines are not
first element, sincerity of the class. The reason for which a servant of a law prays and feels encouraged to pray should be his intention to draw closer to Allah, his love for him. His wish to seek His pleasure and closeness is compliance with his command to pray. Hence, there's nothing from this worldly life that ever encourages him to pray. rather he prays only to seek the pleasure of his Lord, the Most hi whom he loves and fears and whose reward and forgiveness he seeks.
Right so the first element is a class the first element is a class and even Okay, and breaks that down by saying the motive for this slide is the servants one, desire and love for Allah,
to seeking a lot of pleasure, wanting nearness to him. Literally. This is why you pray because you want nearness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. You want to endear yourself to Allah, you want a lot of love you.
So you're going to do those things that help to endear you to him. Right. And lastly, compliance to his commands. So you're doing this because you want to be obedient.
This is what sincerity means when it comes to the salaat. So again, number one, your desire and love for Allah. Number two, seeking his pleasures trying to be near to him and endear yourself to Him. And number three, compliance to his commands.
As he says here, they seek only the face of the Lord out of love, fear and hope. And how this directly relates to prayer
is important. These last three, these last three are called what love fear and hope. What do they call by the way?
The scholars call those three loving Allah fearing the law hoping and Allah
they call them our candle embed, right? That is the pillars of,
of worship. All acts of embed, have to be built on on those three. That's what it means when we say our camp, they're essential, essential for every activity bed and especially with the Salah. Especially with the salon. This becomes clear because when you recite SoTL Fatiha all of these three should be
And you can't there's there's no clean way to pull out love fear and hope for example, but but many of the scholars mentioned that when you say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and you're in you're praising Allah who is what Rob Bellamy and what is your rub even though we translators Lord cherisher and so forth, the rub is the one who cares for you. Right. So, when you say and hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen it should produce that, that feeling of of love and feeling of love for loss of habitat, or watchmen or him
should produce what feelings of hope, hope and a loss of hands on and magic God
Those feelings of fear. And then immediately after you say those three things you say Erica, what? Now? It is you alone that we worship, worship you With what? worship you with that love, worship you with the hope and worship you with fear. Right? So again that that's directly coming from the salon Evan okay and mentions those three here. Right? So he also mentions that
that they should not you should not want anything from the dunya anything from the dunya What does that mean? And what does it mean when we're seeking
a class or when we're seeking that are Salafi pure, well lost parents?
It means that you are purging from your heart, the desire of anything other than a loss of habitat, that your heart becomes pure. Okay? And this is actually the word EClass as we'll see in shallow tada from the statement of Allah Subhana Allah we says within the lacunae fill anatomy, the hibbeler new Speaker Murphy will Tony human baney fall within what demin lebon and Holly saw hottie Sana, Sally Sherry bean, and there's certainly a lesson for you in cattle. Allah Subhana Allah says, we give you to drink of what is in their bellies. From between digested food and blood. What pure milk pleasant to drink type Lebanon, honey sign, pure milk.
This the the imagery here is amazing. By the way, we we stopped to give this a little bit of thought.
If you slaughter a cow, and you got it, what comes out?
Blood and what else?
In the intestines, right? The feces, I mean, it's, it's not feces yet because it didn't come out. Right? But it's the digested food right? Now.
That's what's in the cow, when it's being milked.
Per Subhana, Allah what comes out is what? pure, pure. Now, that milk
that the milk that comes out of the mammary gland is coming from what
is actually coming from the blood in the food.
You understand, it's actually it's pulling certain things from the blood, certain certain nutrients and also from the food that is that was digested the grass and the feed. Okay. And from that from in between that you get something pure.
Allah Subhana Allah says and that is enabled, there is a lesson for us.
But there's a process that it goes through to become pure, which is beyond the scope of what we're talking about today. It doesn't just happen, right? It has to go through the cell membranes and through the glands. And then it comes out and it's and it's pure. That's what happens with your actions. There's a whole lot of filth around us
a whole lot, many things that will distract your deeds from being purely for a loss of habitat, many things that will call your attention here and there. So that is not purely for loss of habitat, but you have to work to make it pure by las pantallas li
and then and then your actions become pure for the sake of a loss pen which ad through work has to be work has to be intention as the it's intentional. That is for loss of habitat. So the point here is carless or is last is that the act of Lhasa is the act of purifying something. Okay, so making it sincere for last pantalla there's no hypocrisy in it. There's no there's no react in it, you're not seeking again, seeking somebody else's approval
or seeking that they praise you is a reward that you're looking for from other than Allah subhana wa tada and allow me just give you that
you from from allies and widows justice, is that that's what you want it so that's what you got. You want people to praise you so they praise you, but there's no reward with the last parents out for that. And the Prophet it is salatu salam talked about this in an authentic hadith in Sahih Muslim is the last thing that we want to read today and we'll pick up with the second element with which is said look, we'll pick up with that. Next Sunday we in the night alpha readers howdy this howdy is enough it doesn't need to be explained.
Last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the first two
judged on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died as a martyr. He will walk forward along remind him of the favors.
Allah will remind him of the favors He bestowed upon him and the man will acknowledge them. That alone will ask him. What did you do with the with those favors? The man will reply, I fought for your calls until I was martyred. Allah will say, you have lied. You fought so that people might call you courageous, and they had done So listen, what why he fought, so what? so people could say, Oh, look, he's courageous. Look at him. He's a fighter, he knows. He fought for that purpose. And guess what happened? They said,
What did that benefit him and stand in front of Allah? nothing, absolutely nothing, it did not benefit him in the least. In fact, the opposite what happened to him, then it will be ordered, that he be dragged on his face and thrown into hell. And he Subhanallah I mean, it wasn't worth it. And that's what you really want to ask somebody was it worth it? for people to be able to because people can say that you're courageous, and so on and so forth. And this is the first one and another narration of the hiding insight. And as soon as etc, maybe
in a woman you set out to be him enough, I need the first who will be used as fuel for the fire, or these people.
Another man or another will be a man who had acquired and imparted knowledge and who used to recite the quota and he will be brought forward and along remind him of the favorites He bestowed upon you. The man will acknowledge them, that alone will ask him, what did you do with those favors? The man will reply, I acquired knowledge.
I acquired knowledge and toilet and decided to put an end for your sake, a law will say to him, you have lied, you acquired knowledge so that people might call you a scholar. And we started the quarter and so they might call you a reciter and they have done so that it will be ordered that he will be dragged on his face and thrown into hell. So Alonzo Joe blessed him with with with a memory and blessed him to with a nice voice to recite the Quran and blessed him to be able to seek knowledge and he did that.
But he didn't do a philosophy.
He didn't do it for Allah. So Allah azza wa jal reminds him of those favorites and he acknowledges the favors knowledge is the favorites that last fantana bestowed upon him. And when Alonzo Joe asked him, What did you do with those favorites, he says, I acquired knowledge and I taught it and I
learned the Quran and I recited it and it will be sent to him.
You lie You didn't do that. For last time you did it so that they call you as a scholar recited the Quran it was said people said it.
Now, another will be a man in law could make a fluid quickly before before we finish the Hadeeth and staff was alive.
Do added the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Abu Bakr Siddiq regarding a sheikh who memorize the Dalai Lama in yalda, beaker,
and oceanica beaker what an atom was so fuuka demanda Adam, say that Do I have the process I'm taught that bucket acidic, then everybody else from The Omen babbie Allah and he has was more of a right to say this to our allies seek refuge in You from associating partners with you while knowing and I seek your forgiveness for what I have done. Without knowing right, because all of this is a form of should know.
Another will be a man whom a law had made a fluid and given plenty of wealth, he will be brought, he will be brought forward and the law will remind him of the favors even without funding, the man will acknowledge them, then a law will ask him what did you do with those favors? The man will reply I did not neglect any of the ways you like well to be spent except that I did so for your sake I built messages I spent on the on the orphans I did the all of the ways that you that Eliza Joe likes for us to spend our wealth he did all of that.
alone will say you had lied. You did you did it so that people might call you generous and they have done so. Then we'll be ordered that he'd be dragged on his face and thrown into hell.
So again, brothers and sisters memorize that long but in need to beaker, and oceanica beaker what an atom Allah seek refuge in You from committing shirt with
You associating partners with you? Wow. I am aware knowingly knowingly associating partners with you was so futile. The mayor there Adam and I seek your forgiveness for that which I do not know which I've done unwittingly.
And with that we want to stop and Charlottetown and pick up on Sunday the night at at at seven o'clock pm. It'll be after slots in the shed because a lot of Asia we're going to pray at 630 next week being the nights added because the clocks are going back. So panic alone will be humbling Can I shadow in there, you know, and I still couldn't go to weaning.
