Alhamdulillah my brother who want to say you know when I stopped when I was a wee lady Michelle will be unforeseen I will see you at our Marina May I think he level mo de la mejor blue Villa de la y shadow Allah in a lo and behold I surely gotta watch how do I know Mohammed Abdullah salam, Salam O Allah a while early he was actually he was seldom at the Sleeman Katina Nina Yama, Dean, and mvat today shallow Tada. We will begin with the fourth of those with a calling here in the book elements that help you taste the sweetness of salon helps that salon become the corporate pain, the joy of your eye, and the serenity of your heart. Before we get there, we need to do some review and then

00:00:53--> 00:01:03

we'll take something new so we got to get those juices flowing. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim read that read the first review question please with design question. What is the difference between

00:01:05--> 00:01:13

us explain your answer using textual evidence yellow Bismillah the difference between you said look and his last name

00:01:17--> 00:01:44

Okay, so the class is who you're doing it for Why are you doing this particular action? What is the motive behind the action and said look so and so a class is what sincerity in doing that for a long subpanel with Adam making your sole motive Eliza gel and said look, we translated as what truthfulness? Right? Okay being what fidelity now is that?

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

Right? So the truthfulness and fidelity? And it's it's what what did you say it was

00:01:55--> 00:01:59

not just being truthful in what you say in the salon. But what

00:02:00--> 00:02:32

in the actions itself that it is that that you are doing that exclusively, meaning when you stand for saliva, that your heart is in salaat and not anywhere else that is that's what fidelity means? fidelity means what being faithful to something as simple is that you're faithful to it that you're true to it. Right. Okay. So and what would be some textual evidence that would explain to us the difference between a class and setup.

00:02:34--> 00:02:35


00:02:38--> 00:02:58

both both the both of the evidences that we talked about or let me rephrase that. The both of the texts that we talked about were from the Quran, the one was where lots of Hemet data talks about how we get the lemon and Hardy song right how we get the pure milk.

00:03:00--> 00:03:01


00:03:03--> 00:03:15

without going into a whole lot of explanation, because this already went by and then when we talked about civic we talked about the iron from soldier moumita, the javelin sada Puma de la la from,

00:03:17--> 00:03:32

from the believers there those who, who were truthful to Allah and what they what they promised him. And we talked about what that meant, like, why is emulating the prophesy sentiment, important factor for salaat? becoming the joy of your eye? This was?

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

Hold on, raise your hand?

00:03:38--> 00:03:39


00:03:41--> 00:03:46

Because it was the joy of the prophets lie to us. Sometimes I

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

play it, keep coming and keep going. Yeah.

00:03:53--> 00:03:53

We will

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

get closer to.

00:03:57--> 00:04:35

Right. Because if we strive to emulate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, both inwardly and outwardly, then we'll be closer to it becoming the joy of our eye, just like it was the joy of his eyes. It was on them. Right? Why was it the joy of his eye because he loved he loved the loss of Hannah, who was Anna, and he loved what Eliza Jim loved and and he loved what Allah Subhana Allah loves. And on top of that, so everything he did, both from his internal states and his external states is what helped to make it the, the joy of his eyes. So we follow him in that and it will be the joy of our eyes, well being the lights on

00:04:36--> 00:04:45

what is the relationship between honoring the companions and the Salah? What's the relationship between honoring the companions and the salaat?

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

Somebody who says

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

I just want to call on somebody now because you get to the point when you when you actually raise your hand, I think you know it, so I want to call on somebody

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

Doesn't really there. So everybody should raise their hand at this point. All right?

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

You got

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

the transmitters of

00:05:12--> 00:05:19

free so that's where we kind of get our emulation. Right so we can't we can't actually

00:05:21--> 00:05:34

emulate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and how he prayed without what, without knowing without the knowing the narrations that the companions probably along with China and whom brought to us without that there would be no way to know

00:05:35--> 00:06:15

how the prophet Elijah was gonna pray. They were the only ones that actually what saw him pray with their with their eyes. The only way that we can pray as if we're seeing him is to follow the narrations from the campaigns. And that's why we mentioned that that that the scholars have said about those who disparage the companions of the Prophet Isaiah SelectUSA that that they are not actually disparaging the companions alone, but they are making time in the deen they are they're actually criticizing the deen itself because who brought the deen to us the companions of the messenger salado Southern And on that note, I also mentioned last week that there that the the first

00:06:15--> 00:06:51

book that we still kind of have in existence even was not actually in existence is dealing specifically with the size if it's a solid by a man who had been Rahim Allah who Tada. Now even though we don't have that book as a separate book called secrets of salon, he basically brought everything from it in his book, which is known as sahid. They've been hibben. And he said in those four rock guys, that a person prays There are over 400 Sooners on the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA name meaning 400 separate Hadeeth just dealing with the way to pray.

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

And that's what he collected. Now, I read a new question. So

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

number one question what are some of the steps needed to attain the level of sand in your saliva?

00:07:06--> 00:07:14

How does one avoid feeling self admiration for his or her worship of a law? What knowledge does it

00:07:15--> 00:07:28

say is essential to the realization of tawheed? Why? Why is recognition of one's shortcomings necessary for Salah becoming the joy of your I know. Alright.

00:07:30--> 00:08:19

So inshallah, as you'll see, we'll be covering today, attesting to a las pantallas favors and recognizing shortcomings as steps five and six. To select becoming the joy of your eye we also have to cover sand and monaka which is the fourth step. So as a recap, the first step is a class which is sincerity to a lot of hands on and the second step is citko. not truthful and fidelity. The third step is an metabox we'll look at that which is emulating the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam complying with his teachings and your Salah. So those are one two and three and we and we cover those The fourth is a sand well maraca, which we'll cover today excellence in your prayer

00:08:19--> 00:09:00

recognizing that Allah subhana wa tada is watching you number five is an min Okay, which is a testing to a laws favor, that is that Eliza gel is the one who has favored you by making you from amongst the people epsilon and six is a tough see if any mesh had to succeed, witnessing and observing your own shortcomings in your deficiencies in the performance of salah and as you can see all of these six unnecessary and all extremely bad and all extremely bad to to become and the to the level that we want it to be accepted by lots of hematol and actually tasting the sweetness of worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:09:01--> 00:09:19

But we specifically have no claim on him. Allah is specifically talking about Salaam becoming the joy of your eyes. It was for the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam. So he's mentioned the six here, specifically dealing with a solar now tell you so turn to page 49 of books.

00:09:24--> 00:09:24

Got it.

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

Chapter Eight,

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

chapter eight, the fourth element station of excellence

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

and vigilance concerning a law and law

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

station. Excellent.

00:09:41--> 00:09:49

renders to me The state of being vigilant of the law, and we're all about so what they what they're saying what they're saying here

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

is that

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

sand here is actually equivalent to El monaka. And the word is sand.

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

From a linguistic perspective, is dealing with excellence. Okay? It's dealing with excellence in something so

00:10:09--> 00:10:36

it is not just I mean from a linguistic perspective, it doesn't mean to worship the laws though you see him that that's going to come in terms of the religious definition, if you will, what it means a religious terminology and slang terminology, but from a from a linguistic perspective, it comes from the verb Center, which means to do well to do something with excellence. All right. So here

00:10:38--> 00:11:05

in order to get to the point where a salon becomes the joy of your eye, you have to get to the point where you need to strive for sand and your salon which here he says means elmora acaba, okay, which means a maraca, that is to say now to worship him as if you could see him watching you. Okay, so Elmo la Cava El Mirage taba?

00:11:07--> 00:11:17

Jani, which which means to that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah t bone, right? Allah is that upkeep. Does anybody know what that means?

00:11:19--> 00:11:56

He's a watcher. Okay. And the one who watches you while you're taking a test is called the, the Moroccan. Right? He's watching you, while you take that test to make sure you don't do anything that you shouldn't be doing during the test. So Eliza gel is a watcher over you, right? sees everything. And this is a saying you're recognizing that Allah subhanahu wa Jana sees you, but before that there's a higher level of sin, which is to worship Allah as though you see him, not just to worship him as he sees you. What's the difference?

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

Let me ask you this. If you if you're driving down a down the highway, and it says,

00:12:13--> 00:12:19

you know, watch the speed limit or something like that This road is monitored by by radar.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

tell you one second.

00:12:23--> 00:12:52

definitely won't behave. But you don't actually see it. You don't see the cop car, you don't see any red light cameras or anything like that. But you know that they're there. Right? You know that they're there, and they let you know, but you don't actually see it. Okay, so that's that's one level you, you're good, you are going to behave yourself because you You do know that. But what if you actually see the camera and you see the cop car?

00:12:53--> 00:13:33

It's an it's another level, right? So we talked about a sin to worship Allah as though you see him? That's actually a higher level than worshiping him a must mentality knowing that he sees you. Okay? Because when you actually see it, it's another level of your team, if you will, that you another level of certainty, because you actually see it. Right. And the one that says This road is monitored by radars, something like that. It's like, Yeah, probably. But if you don't actually see it, then it doesn't have the same effect. Okay, so that that's the difference between the actual levels of a sand itself not

00:13:35--> 00:14:27

from having a perfect belief, Carmelo a man in a law, his names and attributes to the point that you become as if you can envision him above his throne above the heavens, arranging the affairs of the entire creation, and issuing His commands that governs the cosmos, all the one, the deeds and souls of the slaves are presented before him. In this state. I believe in serving witnesses all of that with his with his heart, and experiences, the application of his attributes and names he sees in his heart and mind that he is the Sustainer of all that exists. How are you ever living as we are hearing, a semi, a semi semi, the all seeing atmosphere, the all powerful and strong azeez the all

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

wise and hacking and the commander who has authority over everything, he will who loves, hates and be pleased, who angers and does all that he is pleased to do? decrees all that he wants, while being above strong, and nothing, or anyone escapes from his knowledge, where he knows that which deceives the eyes and bat which the breasts conceal, so here a little clam or him or her lava, China is saying that in order to

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

get to this level of sentence. We have to have knowledge of a loss of habitat, his names and attributes. And you see this theme over and over again, in terms of what is it that is going to increase your Eman? The primary way to increase your Eman is through knowledge of Allah subhana wa tada knowing who he is. That's why it is so important. So important to study over and over again, the names and attributes of Allah Subhana, who was added? And this is why

00:15:37--> 00:16:15

it has. Yeah, yeah. And if you look at the class, prior to this class, and so much shake hands cleanse, and tafsir of soda teleclass and I'm fed up in solid ness. Why does it take the time that it takes to do that Tafseer is because of the names of Allah subhanahu wa Tada, you're going to stop and understand who was who was a summit, who was an medic, who was on rub subhana wa Tada. And through understanding those names and attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada, you grow in demand, because what you believe has an effect on what you do.

00:16:16--> 00:16:48

What you believe about something has an effect on how you interpret events, and what you do and reaction to those events. It's so your your faith and a loss of habitat It is critical is why would claim Rahim Allah tada says here that if you want to get to that level of a sin, how do you get there, you stand in that salon, and in any activity better that you do, as if you see a loss of Hannah who was at above his arch, making those commands,

00:16:49--> 00:17:02

arranging the affairs of the creation, you witnessed him as a human as a semi as elbasy, Rizal Hakeem to the end of where he mentioned from those events of a loss of habitat. Now,

00:17:03--> 00:17:17

mindfulness is the foundation from which all these notice at the end here, he says, and nothing or anyone escapes from his knowledge where he knows that which deceives the eye, and that which the breasts conceal any

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

standing in front of a loss of habitat,

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

in your salon, knowing that Allah knows what you're thinking,

00:17:30--> 00:18:00

that's important to reach the level of a Santa salah and really enjoy your Salah. Because the only way you're going to empty your heart out of everything else, except for the salon, so that you get to the point where you have setup in your salon, to get to the point where you are being true to the salon is if you stand in front of Allah, knowing that he knows what is in your heart, and you're embarrassed to stand in front of him, knowing that you're thinking about something else.

00:18:03--> 00:18:08

And this is why this part is so important. And he nobody likes.

00:18:09--> 00:18:21

And he's just amazing. And if somebody comes to you, and they're requesting something from you, you are the CEO of the company, you're the president of whatever it is, and they come to your Why are they talking to you, they're texting somebody

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

that does that really, like

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

it's not likely that you're going to even feel that they're respecting you

00:18:32--> 00:18:36

in the first place. And they may come to you they have a need.

00:18:37--> 00:19:21

Right, but they're busy. They're preoccupied with something else. Well, the reality is we stand in a salon, and we're preoccupied, you don't actually have to be on your phone, you're not actually alone knows what's in your heart. And so clearing your heart, right is what's in what's important to get to the level of a saint. So so far, we mentioned two things that are important for getting to that level of a saint. Number one is what knowledge of a loss of habitat is names and his attributes. And number two is knowing that Allah Subhana Allah knows what's in your heart. Now, the state of mindfulness is the foundation from which all the deeds of the heart emanate come from as it

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

necessitates the state of mindfulness here's his

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

he's actually translated a cent

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

so if you want to write like something a note for yourself, so that you know Arabic here, he's talking about LS and he says, is the foundation from which all of the deeds of the heart m&e. So I just think that's important here to know that this is what he's talking about here. Even though he says the state of mindfulness, I think it's the first time he translated like, if you look on page 49, says the station of excellence, right, but then on page 50, translated translates it as the state of mindfulness. Not that it's incorrect, but the inconsistency

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

The translation may make the reader think that it's something else.

00:20:05--> 00:20:37

As it necessitates you can you just start from the beginning of mindfulness, which is said, is the foundation from which all the deeds of the heart emanate, as it necessitates becoming humble as hire, and shy each lab from a law concerning respectful attack mean to him and turning at ynab to him. Furthermore, a cause for one's love and the hotbed of the law fear

00:20:38--> 00:21:01

of him for reliance activa on him submission, absolutely sure. To Him and the feeling of humility at Blue Zone. Yeah, it also ends all the whispers of devils cast away the dots and commits the heart and the mind become Buddhist.

00:21:03--> 00:21:03


00:21:05--> 00:21:06

there's a lot I mean,

00:21:07--> 00:22:00

when when there's so many interrupt, I don't know what to call them. Besides interruptions. It's hard to pick up the meaning. Okay, so let's just let's kind of go back over it again. He says this level of a sin is the foundation of all the actions of the heart, right? Why? Why is a sand the foundation for all of the actions of the heart because it necessitates other things when you get to the level of sand, it necessitates that you venerate and magnify a loss of Hannah who were to add, that you have that you are in all of Allah azza wa jal that you love him subhana wa tada that you repent to him and rely upon him that you submit to Him some Hannah who was at it, and that you

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

humble yourself to Allah. Alright, so this is what he's saying here. To get to a sin when you have a saint, it necessitates all of these other things. So that's why it serves as the foundation for every other action of the heart.

00:22:16--> 00:22:16


00:22:17--> 00:22:22

how close a servant is from his Lord depends on his share from the state of

00:22:24--> 00:22:43

and because of which the reward and rank Uppsala differ from one person to another. So that the difference between the selected one person and another can be like the distance between heavens and the earth, the both perform the salaat similarity. Yeah. SubhanAllah. So

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

here it

00:22:47--> 00:23:07

is, what makes one salon different from the other salon, such that two people and the same message, praying the same prayer behind the same, amen, right? They're doing the exact same thing. The difference between this ally is like the difference between as he says, The heavens and earth

00:23:08--> 00:23:30

Subhan Allah, all through what all through a sin, which is to worship Allah, as though you see him and there is a direct connection between salah and seeing Allah Subhana who was added, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a sense our own or become

00:23:32--> 00:24:16

commercial owner had the common commands of Allah hadn't come up and he the prophet SAW I saw him said this to his companions, when there was a full moon out and he had them looking at the moon and he said in the concert on on on a book came out, I don't know how to cover, comma, you're going to see your Lord just as you see this moon led to the moon feel it Yeti and you won't have any trouble in in seeing him. Just like if there were a million people all crowded into one small place and the moon is updated if they have any problems seeing the moon even though they're all crowded in the same place. So you're going to see your Lord you won't have any trouble and seeing him soup Hannah,

00:24:16--> 00:24:28

who was at the prophets of light, it was son himself, but in this the fire tomb and led to her level. Allah Salatin Kabbalah to Lewisham see Salatin.

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

Couple of revisions for falou in sort of privacy Some say if you have the ability to not be overcome and lead to the level and such that you He said, If you have the ability to finish the talk from LA to la vida Salatin, kubla tolerations He will come to Hulu BFF Allah, which means you have the ability not to be overcome from praying before

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

The sun comes up and before the sun goes down then do so. In other words, pray before the sun comes up and he started Virgin and pray before this before the sun goes down Kabbalah guru bishops which salon is that? salata Lhasa,

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is,

00:25:21--> 00:25:33

is connecting between what salaat and seeing Allah subhana wa Tada. Time, where do the believers want to see a loss of habitat?

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

And what is the greatest? What is the greatest blessing engender,

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

seeing a lot of hands on

00:25:44--> 00:25:57

the lies with Joe says, In the Quran, Linda Dena accidental, Allah Hostnet was the ad, those who say no who do good who have a sand

00:25:59--> 00:26:19

because we are not talking about sand. For them, there will be a host net, which is Jen net, and zyada, which is even more meaning that they see a loss of habitat. But this Hadees is a clear indication. And there are other ideas as well, that those who do not pray, will not see a lot.

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

So the

00:26:24--> 00:26:42

there's it's very important that we that we strive for this level of a say, because if you want to see a law and the next life, you have to worship Him as though you see him here. And there is that clear connection between that and, and the salaat.

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

The other thing and this is the last thing we'll talk about in terms of this particular step, which is

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

step four,

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

is that a larger Joe says in the line,

00:26:59--> 00:27:07

color to add, Valentina jahad, VENA Luna Deanna whom Sue bolena

00:27:08--> 00:27:16

those who strive for Latina, jahad rufina those who strive for us in our way,

00:27:17--> 00:27:42

but not the end, nahoon su bolena, we will guide them to our paths, meaning those deeds that lead towards gender, those these that lead towards gender, we're in a law hella man. masini. And Allah truly is with the mercy need that people have a sense tell you, how did they get to the level of a Saint jaha do Faena.

00:27:44--> 00:27:59

They were striving for us for our pleasure. And so to get to the level of sand is another indication here, to get to the level of sand, there must be Mujahid. And IE there has to be striving.

00:28:00--> 00:28:29

There has to be striving. Right. So that's the third thing that we mentioned, to reach the level of accent. The first was knowing Allah Subhana Allah through his names and attributes, the second is clearing the heart, and the third is striving. And number one, and number two need number three, and it's to Noah Los Angeles through his names and attributes and to clear your heart both of them are going to require striving, striving for the pleasure of a loss of hematite

00:28:30--> 00:28:36

light, this is a summary of what I mentioned under this particular section, which is published you

00:28:37--> 00:28:39

for a second law.

00:28:40--> 00:29:13

One, this is when a person prays as if he sees a lot, right. So this is the basic definition of sand as it relates to salon. Number two is that is the foundation of all actions of the heart, right. And even Jim wants us to understand that we need this sand for the other actions of the heart, whether it's being an awful lot, loving a lot and so forth. Three nearest a law is commensurate with a sad, it's just boy. I was waiting for you to translate that.

00:29:16--> 00:29:17


00:29:18--> 00:29:21

It's similar to having

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

nearness to a laws commensurate. So

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

not not equal to it's it corresponds with with a sense so. So if you go apply for a job, and two to the same people are applying for the for the job. One of them has a bachelor's degree in two years experience and other one has a master's degree and 10 years experience, right? They might say, Okay, if this person gets the job, they'll give them this amount and then a person with a master's degree and more experience gets gets it a larger amount because the pay is commensurate with the with the experience.

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

Right, it's commencing so it'll fluctuate with and correspond to so near this to a lot of corresponds with your accent Jani, the greater you are in a sand, the closer you will be to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why it's also important to understand that there are levels to all of these levels to a slam, there's levels to mn there's levels to a saint, even though we understand that what Islam is

00:30:30--> 00:30:40

Eman is greater than Islam. And that st is greater than he meant. Even in those three areas. They are data jet, there are levels right?

00:30:42--> 00:30:42


00:30:45--> 00:30:48

further read the next one, chapter nine

00:30:49--> 00:31:35

element, acknowledgement of the favorite of admin of a law. It is to acknowledge the infinite blessing for being at the surface of the law, that your heart and body are deployed to certain alone, and are only for love and grace and favor, are conferred upon you, to facilitate to make easy for you being in such a state of servitude. Had it not been for laws, Grayson, favorite piling, nothing, nothing of that would have occurred, which is something that the companions of the Prophet SAW love, I think it was so much acknowledge when they used to repeat a line of poetry that beats as follows by a law will love was it not for a law, neither would we have been guided, you're able to

00:31:35--> 00:31:41

give charity or perform the prayer time stamping. So this level

00:31:42--> 00:31:49

or this element, if you will, acknowledging the favor of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:31:52--> 00:32:03

Let's, let's just dig into this a little bit. So that we understand, we understand the importance here. When you stand for prayer,

00:32:04--> 00:32:11

it is very important that you realize you are not doing a lot of favor.

00:32:12--> 00:32:29

So you have to start there. When you stand for prayer, you have to realize that you are not doing your Lord a favor. And you are not doing a favor to the oma and you're not doing a favor to the masjid.

00:32:31--> 00:32:36

That it is Allah azzawajal who is favoring you

00:32:38--> 00:32:43

by putting it in your heart, the desire, the will to pray.

00:32:45--> 00:33:10

There are so many people and I'm telling you when you stand to pray, if you recognize this, it will be a humbling experience for your salon, and your salon will start to become more beloved to you. Because you will begin to feel blessed. And you will feel blessed because you are about to pray.

00:33:12--> 00:33:28

And when you feel blessed because of something you become attached to that thing, that thing becomes beloved to you. Think about people who feel blessed because they have a new car, that car becomes the joy of their eye.

00:33:29--> 00:33:50

But you are blessed because Allah is giving you the desire and the will to pray. Though there are other people who claim to be Muslim, and they are not standing for the salon, not to mention the majority of people on planet earth who are not Muslim, and who have no idea about the salon.

00:33:52--> 00:33:58

They don't know what they're missing, as they say. They don't know they don't even know what they miss.

00:33:59--> 00:34:06

Right? It's an Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you to be from amongst the people who stand in prayer

00:34:07--> 00:34:11

and who have that connection with him

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

multiple times a day.

00:34:16--> 00:34:22

And Allah subhana wa tada blesses you through this split prayer, right?

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

This is a cleansing station.

00:34:27--> 00:34:37

It's a cleansing station and look what happens when the dirt and the filth builds up on something. It becomes very becomes very hard to clean down the line.

00:34:38--> 00:34:59

But imagine if if something was cleaned five times a day, the prophets of light there was some say, if there was a river be badly I had the community right at right at your door. Right that you could wash from five times a day. Would any of you have any dirt left on it? They said no mustn't have a lot. He said. This is the example of the salaat yem Hello

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

behalf of hotwire that Eliza gel erases by way of it the sense.

00:35:08--> 00:35:19

So, every time Allah blesses you to stand in prayer, Eliza Joe is using that prayer to erase some of your sins and to raise your level.

00:35:20--> 00:36:06

Fahd lemon Allah, this is his grace. This is the favor from Allah Subhana who attack and so it's it's important when you if you want that Salaam to actually be the joy of your eye, that you realize the blessing of the Salah itself. The favor that allows parents Allah has bestowed upon you by making you a person who prays making you a person prays because not from you. It's not from you, and that's something that you also have to realize, and this is why some of the companions of the Prophet Isaiah select to sit down we'll say well, like Lola lo Medina. Well, that's a definite what a Selena. If it wasn't for Allah, we wouldn't have been guided we wouldn't have given in charity and

00:36:06--> 00:36:12

we wouldn't have prayed. Yeah, to be had and is what is what it mentions in Arabic. And that's because the Hadith

00:36:14--> 00:36:18

one of the campaigns and some narrations selama.

00:36:19--> 00:36:26

And another narrations of the love on a white hat and some narrations and Bukhari and Muslim the prophesy centum himself was the one who said who said these words.

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

But yeah, to be hat means that it's it's one day would

00:36:34--> 00:37:03

take the camels, okay? Even though it's not it's not translated like that here says they would repeat this line of poetry, actually. It means as they were taking their camels, they would say this poetry because they would check. They they would do this. It's a certain rhythm that they would have when they would speak well. Ah, hello, Lola, Houma. Dana. Oh, because they tried to get their camels height, you know, they want their camels to move a certain way. So they would say things a certain way Yes.

00:37:07--> 00:37:29

and determine trench Yeah, it's reported that the province I saw him said this himself in Bihar a Muslim as he was digging the trench. Well, Loyola, lo Medina will lead to subduction wala Selena, okay, so the point here is to first recognize that you are not doing a lot of favor

00:37:31--> 00:37:41

so panela because I mean that's the reality for some people they feel like whatever a bad it is that they're doing that somehow a lot of benefits from that a bad

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

in allaahu example the COVID tilma t allows

00:37:52--> 00:38:22

Na Na to general insert Nadia widow man nudie domain homie risk man Li Mo alleges Oh created us for his worship he says it is not created gentlemen kinda except to command them with his worship. Right? And then he says men are evil men whomever is we don't want any risk from them is no sustenance that we want from Allah Subhana tada while manually doing your table and we don't require that they feed us

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

well Matt, what are you doing

00:38:27--> 00:39:13

in the Save masala to genuine insha Allah Leah boo Ma Ri Domaine home address for my notes in your email. Now with the with the Hamza now what I don't want them to feed me or to provide from I don't want them to provide for me or to feed me in the law haha. It is a law who is a Muslim, and he doesn't require anything from us. So it's very important that we realize that as we stand for the salaat, but all actually better again, these six steps, if you will, or essentials or whatever elements, they call it them, they're important for all accidently bad, but specifically if we want to enjoy our select then this has to be recognized not

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

as La,

00:39:21--> 00:39:24

la, la la, la la,

00:39:27--> 00:39:28

la la.

00:39:36--> 00:40:00

Considered a favor to you. If they have accepted the slab say, do not consider your favorite type. The Allies were just telling the profit say do not you all do not consider you a slam a favor to me. In other words, they consider it a favorite as if they're doing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:40:00--> 00:40:33

Favorite and as mentioned in the tips here, that there was a certain people who did not fight against the prophet Isaiah is Salatu was salam, and they accepted Islam without fighting against him. So then they consider that to be as if there was a favor. You know, we just came to Islam and you know, we didn't fight you as if it's a fate as if the prophesy centum is gaining something through them becoming Muslim, which is a problem here because what because then you're not fully recognizing that it is a lost favor for having guided you right now.

00:40:35--> 00:40:41

A lot has converted favor upon you that he has guided you to the faith.

00:40:43--> 00:41:03

If you should be truthful, it is the law permitted a servant to become a believer in the first instance. It is he who facilitated for people to pray. Justice Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam said in the ayah reppin I was lm that must be made me like I want to be getting

00:41:05--> 00:41:14

the metal leg our Lord and make us Muslims in submission to you and from our descendants, a Muslim nation in submission to you.

00:41:15--> 00:41:19

And Rob big l name of the masala tea.

00:41:20--> 00:41:27

Tea, my Lord, make me a one who establishes the prayer and from my descendants

00:41:32--> 00:41:36

make me one who establishes the prayer and many for Madison's

00:41:39--> 00:42:35

fight. Baba Gianni Maki masala tea woman's Ricci Oh my Lord make me one who establishes the prayer make me one who established shirts. No. It's just say establishes the prayer and also my 30 year my offspring. So the guarantee to be mocchi masala means that a person protects the times of the prayer and praise the way that it's supposed to be prayed. Okay, so it doesn't just mean make me amongst the people who pray. Right. But establishing the prayer what appealed was salado edges again right a p musala. means that you are praying at the times that Allah subhana wa tada has legislated how he has legislated

00:42:36--> 00:43:04

these points here if we just take a step back, it is a law who permitted a servant to become a believer in the first place. Right so that is when we talk about the min of Allah Subhana Allah, it is important to recognize his favor in guiding you to imagine in the first place as a favor from him, not because you deserved it is nothing that you did to deserve Amen.

00:43:06--> 00:43:45

But Allah Subhana Allah favorite us in that way, and favorite his service by guiding them to Amen. And then and then he says it is him who facilitated for people to pray. And this is why you notice the statement of Ibrahim rubbishing me Make me Make me one who establishes the prayer. I mean, in other words, if Allah Subhana, Allah does not give you that, then you will not have that. If he doesn't make you from amongst the people who established the prayer, then he will not be amongst the people who establish the prayer want to say something?

00:43:49--> 00:44:29

Exactly. That's exactly why when when the president says hi, Jada Sala Hi alfalah, you say? Hola. Wala quwata illa Billah. You recognize that you don't have any ability to bring yourself good or to ward off any evil, you don't have the ability to put in your own chest, the desire to do not to mention the physical abilities, but you don't even have the ability to will in your heart to do what it is that Allah Subhana Allah has commanded you to do without his help.

00:44:32--> 00:44:32


00:44:34--> 00:44:59

is there for a fact. That is the famous amendment of the law, and he conferred upon his slaves, that they should worship and obey Him. Indeed, this is from the greatest of the laws graces upon the servant. A law most high said will not be coming near the law and whatever you have any type of favor. It is from a law

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


00:45:02--> 00:45:14

on the next page this is no this is how to write Yeah, it should it should say what I can allow it should say correct that on page 54.

00:45:17--> 00:45:18


00:45:23--> 00:45:29

1449 is 49 English Yeah,

00:45:30--> 00:45:38

I got you, it says full silat which is the 41st it is the 4444 sorta for sealant, but this is not full sila

00:45:40--> 00:46:28

should say 149 49 but it is the seventh I tell you what I can the law of a lake on the man was a you know, Louie como karate Lake Como como su coleccion de como se to the beginning of the I here, even though it doesn't mention is wild and we'll end the fecal rasulillah know that amongst you is the messenger of Allah. And Allah Subhana. Allah here is reminding us that the person who is right there with you talking to the companions, obviously, is the Messenger of Allah, meaning that what he's not telling you something from himself, he is simply a messenger, what he's bringing you is from Allah, the things that you may want may actually be detrimental to you. And so he's not just going to do

00:46:28--> 00:46:49

things, he's not just going to prohibit things or make things halau or whatever, because you want them to be and this is the duty of every scholar of Islam is not to make things halau that allows trans allies Maehara or make things haram that Allah Subhana Allah has made halau believing that he knows what's good for the people.

00:46:50--> 00:47:12

But that he follows the revelations strictly like the messenger velocities and available and the vehicle rasulillah loyalty eurocon fee cathedra minimal Emily 92 if he was following you all in much of what you want, then it would have actually caused you some hard work in the law hubbub a common man and then this part comes in but that it is

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

Oh, man even the translations

00:47:24--> 00:47:25

Yeah, that's weird.

00:47:27--> 00:47:33

So yeah, but but even this and remember what it adds another bukem lazy then

00:47:35--> 00:47:40

the issue optimizing the nickel but that's not even mentioned like the Arabic is not even there.

00:47:41--> 00:47:43

Alright, so okay

00:47:45--> 00:47:46


00:47:47--> 00:47:54

No, no this is I didn't realize this panel I looked over to I didn't even realize sometimes some handle it just kind of skip over that stuff.

00:47:56--> 00:48:00

Yeah, so that I don't need to go back to the Arabic book.

00:48:06--> 00:48:09

Just give me one second. Give me one second. Let me see if that's

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

what if to and then on up buku

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

Lizzy then Nicole, hold on. Okay, so let's go to you got the book in Arabic there.

00:48:25--> 00:48:27

I'm pulling it up now.

00:48:29--> 00:48:29

My shadow

00:48:32--> 00:48:40

in Chicago, in Chicago, noisy then the correct. But is there an Arabic you're saying? I mean, it's there in the Arabic version of the book.

00:48:43--> 00:49:07

Yeah, okay. So yeah, I'm back at the book now. So we'll call it out. And maybe from an invitation from Allah, we'll call it what I can. What I can Allah have a corny man was it you know, he could overcome so that the, that whole translation is there should not be there. It says and remember when your Lord proclaimed, if you are grateful, I will surely increase you. But if you deny and deema punishment severe, you can just

00:49:10--> 00:49:15

so yes, the but that's not the translation that trans Yeah.

00:49:17--> 00:49:31

The Arabic right the Arabic that's there is, is in the original book, and that's who do rot, which is the La Jolla which is the 49th chapter of the Quran 49 Sutra and it's the seventh I

00:49:32--> 00:49:38

cross out the translation, and then we have to put in a translation

00:49:41--> 00:49:42


00:49:43--> 00:49:44


00:49:45--> 00:49:47

yeah, go ahead. You can read the translation.

00:49:49--> 00:49:50


00:49:52--> 00:49:59

And know that among you is the messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam if he were to obey you in much of the matter.

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

You will be in difficulty loss of power will Medina as endeared to you faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts and has made an April to you disbelief, defiance and this obedience those are the rightly guided alright so here like in the last half of a lake and when the man was a you know we could overcome Allah has made he man he has endeared faith to you was a you know who he could become and beautified it in your chests and your hearts will cover La La Mancha for a while for Sukkot coleccion and he has made kufr which is unbelief, alpha sUq which is which they translated as defiance and LS Yan disobedience is made these things to test it to you.

00:50:53--> 00:50:59

Hola, ecohome Urvashi dhun It is they who are the Rashi doing the right lead guide now.

00:51:08--> 00:51:11

You can make that dry, no doubt about it. But the

00:51:13--> 00:51:24

quickly without going into a whole lot of detail aligns with Joel having made a man beloved to you and beautifying it in your chest and in your hearts.

00:51:26--> 00:51:37

This is a man itself. Meaning all of the aspects of a man because as we've covered a man is not just it's not just what

00:51:39--> 00:52:03

it's not just a belief, right? It's not just a belief but he man is Colin Wyman a statement and action, statements of the heart and actions of the heart, statement of the tongue and actions of the limbs. Right. All of that is Amen. Allies Magellan has made all of that beloved to you, both knowledge and action

00:52:05--> 00:52:23

and he has beautified it and your hearts and he has made the test to you. Unbelief, which is the what Cofer is the opposite the polar opposite of, of Amen. And for sukan ecn, which are major sins and the lessons they do what to email.

00:52:25--> 00:52:29

Well, they diminish, they diminish, right whereas kafir

00:52:30--> 00:52:55

is total total contradiction of of email. So it wipes it obliterates email whereas the major sins and the lesser sins chip away at email, you understand. So Allah eco hamachi do Gani, the people who love Amen. And who hate it's opposite or what they are the ones who are the Rashi

00:52:56--> 00:52:57

and who is the Rashid

00:53:02--> 00:53:07

who does it check who has rushed pipe or wash it

00:53:08--> 00:53:12

is the one who knows and acts according to his knowledge.

00:53:14--> 00:53:24

So, his knowledge his sound and his actions are righteous. His knowledge his sound and his actions are righteous.

00:53:25--> 00:53:28

The opposite of our rushed

00:53:29--> 00:53:30

is Ll e y.

00:53:33--> 00:53:34

Li y

00:53:35--> 00:53:40

Yeah, hi. Wow. Alif yet, Emily way.

00:53:43--> 00:53:50

Mal baldassarre He will come while Matt Howard on our way.

00:53:51--> 00:53:52


00:53:55--> 00:53:59

the wire is is when there is a defect in

00:54:00--> 00:54:04

in the acting according to to the knowledge

00:54:07--> 00:54:12

so you they may have the knowledge but they don't. They don't act according to it.

00:54:15--> 00:54:17

And balada is the opposite of he Daya

00:54:18--> 00:54:26

rush does the app and really why is the opposite of rushed? All of those are four terminologies four terms there. Yeah, rushed

00:54:27--> 00:54:31

me the wire and bodalla and he died

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

Mashie from the other. Where did you make it? Now? This element. This element by far is one of the greatest elements and most beneficial for the servant of the law. So the more profound the tawheed of a person is, the more perfected share from this element will be one of the benefits attained from this

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

But what is this element? This element? I noticed what he's saying, but what are we talking about here?

00:55:06--> 00:55:07

That not

00:55:10--> 00:55:36

recognizing a loss favor, again, again, let's just go back this element, which means what recognizing a law's favorite, by far is one of the greatest elements and most beneficial for the servant of a law. So the more profound that so he'd have a person is the more perfected his share from this element will be

00:55:39--> 00:55:42

explaining what he means by profound. Yeah, just give me a second.

00:55:45--> 00:55:50

So I need to go back. I thought I checked this translation here.

00:55:52--> 00:55:53

For you.

00:56:01--> 00:56:02


00:56:03--> 00:56:07

Yeah, let's just go to the air. Because that way, we'll see. It says

00:56:09--> 00:56:21

hollow head and mesh admin album and machete we're in via lab, the ocular McKenna lives without Amato, he then can help the woman had that machete attempt. Okay. He's also going to

00:56:23--> 00:56:30

mention here, that this relationship between recognizing the favor of a lost parents it

00:56:32--> 00:56:40

the favor of Allah Subhana, Allah, and tauheed is interconnected. Okay. And the reason why this is important,

00:56:41--> 00:57:16

is because everyone talks about this in another place. And at the end of his book called alpha Wade, where he goes into detail, and I and inshallah we can cover some of this next week. So I don't want to go too in depth, we won't be able to get through this. But we'll be able to cover it next week inshallah, because there's very little to cover from the conclusion of the book, and then we'll be able to tie everything together. But one of the things that he mentioned, and like I said, well, we'll, we'll talk about this in a little bit more detail is that in order to have complete tawheed,

00:57:18--> 00:57:24

you have to recognize that every single favor is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:57:25--> 00:58:14

Every favor, Deen and dunya. Every favor. So just like you recognize that a loss of Hannah who were to Anna is the sole creator, that he is the sole provider, that the things that he has given you, by way of material things, or by the people is put in your life and so forth. And all of that is from Allah, that allies are jealous also is also the sole provider of your Dini, your religious benefits your religious favors. So he is the one who has guided you to gratitude is the one who has guided you to his worship, he is the one who has guided you to walk all the way to the end. When you recognize that,

00:58:15--> 00:58:18

then your heart will be attached to him and him alone.

00:58:19--> 00:58:26

If you feel like your favorites come from other than a lot of parents added, then a portion of your heart is going to be attached to where you think those favorites are coming from.

00:58:28--> 00:58:30

And that takes away from it to hate.

00:58:33--> 00:59:10

Clear or not clear to you. So how do you attain to true to hate of Allah subhanaw taala in worshiping Him alone and turning to Him alone, is to recognize that every favor you have is from him alone. Otherwise, otherwise, it doesn't mean that you'll be committing shooting or something that's going to take you outside of Islam per se. But if you feel like there is a blessing that is coming from other than a law, there is going to be a portion of the heart that is attached to wherever that you feel like that blessing is is coming from.

00:59:11--> 00:59:36

And the in the cure for that is to recognize that whatever someone else has given you, it's because Allah subhanaw taala has given it to them, that they're the conduit, it doesn't mean that they shouldn't be think they should be thanked. Right? Because part of you thinking Allah Subhana Allah is thanking those people that he has put in place to distribute his favorites to you, but you recognize that he is the source of what's happening now.

00:59:42--> 00:59:43

And what sense

00:59:44--> 00:59:54

the love that you have for loss of habitat is because he is alive It's because of who he is and what he has done for you and your love for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is because you love Allah.

00:59:55--> 01:00:00

Meaning you love the prophets, I sell them because Allah Subhana Allah loved him the

01:00:00--> 01:00:05

Most out of all of his creation, and so you love the prophecy seller, because you love Allah.

01:00:07--> 01:00:26

And you love the Prophet, it is so nice to see him also because of the qualities that he had and because of his Rama and his right foot with this oma, right, the mercy and the compassion that he had for the oma for his own muscle, it was Sunday. But you also recognize that all of that came from where he came from Allah Subhana Allah, so he's the source. Now.

01:00:36--> 01:00:37

One of the benefits obtained

01:00:41--> 01:00:43

the SEC the second, the

01:00:48--> 01:00:55

one of the benefits obtained from this element is that it prevents the heart feeling

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

egotistical, about the good deeds performed, when a person acknowledges and affirms that a lot. The most high is the one who guided the servant to him, and that it is His favor upon the servant, that he is a believer, he will consequently not be fascinated by his good deeds even feel superior to other people because of that, therefore, all such debased feelings, bad feelings are instantly removed from his heart, and so needed doesn't talk about them. They feel better than others because of them. And this is the nature of any accepted. Good deal.

01:01:34--> 01:01:39

All right, we we do need to just take some time with this very quickly. I mean,

01:01:41--> 01:02:12

we're going to take time, but we're gonna do it as quickly as possible. So here I am Rahim. Allah is talking about when you realize that these favors that you have, that the favor of Salah is from Allah subhanaw taala. One of the benefits from that is that what it erases what is known as an urge, but an urge, which is to be to be this self admiration, right? That you believe that you are actually doing something.

01:02:13--> 01:02:25

You know, and I mean, look, let's just be real, right? This can happen to anybody, and especially the people whom Allah Subhana Allah has blessed with knowledge. And the better

01:02:27--> 01:02:28

is that they start to feel

01:02:30--> 01:02:45

that they know something, and that they've done something. And so they prayed for three hours. And the Imam Mashallah and he recited this, and we prayed and we cried, and we did this and they start to feel like they actually did something

01:02:46--> 01:03:26

large, and you start, you start is what they say you're Ah, I'ma Whoa, he looks at his actions as if they are something as if he's actually done something. Right? When you realize that all of that the fact that you stood and that you cried, and that you did that instead of doing something else is all a favor from Allah, then it turns the tables, you won't become conceited or egotistical or, or have those vain qualities where you start to feel like you've actually done something good for the deen

01:03:27--> 01:03:40

Subhana Allah. I mean, it happens, it happens when a person puts down their wealth to build the house of Allah. And they feel like I did that. And I want to remind people about that, after we we built that,

01:03:41--> 01:03:43

you know, matter of fact, put my name on it.

01:03:45--> 01:03:50

Because they feel like they've done something

01:03:52--> 01:04:00

that is of significance, that deserves to be rewarded by law. See, and that's where the problem comes in.

01:04:01--> 01:04:06

They feel entitled to a laws reward.

01:04:07--> 01:04:16

They feel entitled to gender, I built the house for a lot. Therefore Allah like owes me genda, even though they're not saying it like that.

01:04:17--> 01:05:00

But that's the feeling of an urge, but an urge, right? And so, this is what I am, is referring to here when he says one of the benefits obtained from this element. Yanni, recognizing that it's all a favor from Allah, is that it prevents the heart from feeling egotistic this is where he's using the word in Arabic, about the good deeds perform. Because when a person acknowledged and affirms that Allah is the one who guided the servant to Allah, and that it is a lost favor upon the servant that he is a believer, he will consequently not be fascinated, amazed by his good deeds, or even field service.

01:05:00--> 01:05:13

period to other people because of that, and that's another benefit that you don't look down on people who may not be doing what you're doing. You don't know what else they're doing they may be doing they may be excelling in an area that you don't excel in.

01:05:17--> 01:05:59

That is but you can also give publicly if it's going to encourage other people to give for good cause. Therefore all such debates feelings are instantly removed from his heart. He does not talk about them nor feel better than others because of them and this is the nature of any accepted the I'm gonna we're going to talk about this for a second and then I'm going to read some other statement from Immanuel Kant because it's important to understand having a hexameter haimo law to add he has a book called anemia it's it's a mumbo jumbo to me Mia which deals with the etiquettes Okay, let's do it which deals with etiquettes in general he says lads are betting to be heat Yani by

01:05:59--> 01:06:18

your actions. You're about to Walla Walla, Walla, Fie journey with them be with toxicity when near me, right. Don't be amazed by your action. That amazement will cause the action to be nullified.

01:06:19--> 01:06:22

nullified, and don't even see it.

01:06:24--> 01:06:28

When you compare it to your sins, your shortcomings,

01:06:29--> 01:06:35

and allows favor. So this is why the scholars have said,

01:06:36--> 01:06:39

if you want to be cured,

01:06:40--> 01:06:57

of the disease of a large bird, or you don't want to catch it in the first place, if you don't want to catch it in the first place, then you need to see your sins. As you look at the action, compare the action to the sins that you know you have whatever good deed it might be,

01:06:58--> 01:07:04

does it compare to the amount of sins that you have?

01:07:06--> 01:07:20

Number two, to recognize your shortcomings and that's the next mesh head that we're going to have to cover next week, the next thing that you need to observe, and the last one, number six, to recognize your shortcomings in that act of worship itself.

01:07:22--> 01:07:27

In the act of worship itself, that you've done, recognize that there are shortcomings in your worship.

01:07:29--> 01:07:57

And then when the enemy and also recognize that Allah Subhana, Allah is the one who has favored you in the first place to do those deeds, he has favored you. Right. So no matter what it is, if a person has given half of their wealth, to build a house have a loss of Hannah Montana, look at that, in connection with the sins that that person has

01:07:59--> 01:08:07

a lifetime of sins that a person may have. Did they make Toba? For all of them? Did they forget I saw hola

01:08:09--> 01:08:18

Jani many of the sins that a person has committed, I saw hola Allah has counted them. And they are there one or two, but they forgot.

01:08:20--> 01:08:21

But the last one is Allah deny.

01:08:24--> 01:08:46

What am I cannot buka nesea. Your Lord is not forgive for time. The second thing is to recognize whatever shortcomings you have in your worship of Allah spent time in the worship itself. There are shortcomings, recognizing those shortcomings will push you to do better. If you think that you already perfected it, why would you do anything differently?

01:08:47--> 01:08:49

If you think that you've already hit the time,

01:08:51--> 01:09:03

you know, I'm very good at whatever it is, whatever activewords How do you how's that going to push you to be any better? It won't. And then recognize that that wealth that you have it came from where exactly

01:09:04--> 01:09:26

it came from a loss of hands out in the first place. Your desire to give it for his sake came from where it came from a loss of data in the first place. If a person steps back and said, No, I work really hard for this wealth. Tell you you work really hard for that well, and who gave you the ability to work hard for that wealth?

01:09:27--> 01:09:38

No, but but I'm, I'm intelligent and and this is why I knew how to invest the wealth to get this well, and who was the one that blessed you with that intelligence and the phrase came from where?

01:09:39--> 01:09:47

And if he says no, but you're not working. My intelligence came because when I was younger, you know, I worked really hard at school.

01:09:48--> 01:09:55

And who was it that puts you in the position to go to school in the first place when other children couldn't go for whatever reason.

01:09:56--> 01:10:00

And you went to the best schools because Allah Subhana Allah puts you in position.

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

do that because he gave you the he puts you in a household

01:10:06--> 01:10:17

that fostered that environment for you from the time that you so if a person really understands that is all from a law in the first place then what favor you doing the law

01:10:19--> 01:10:29

so that's to help you know if you want to stay away from that ego and vanity and self aberration ology but

01:10:30--> 01:10:45

then you have to recognize those three things and it'll push it away even Okay, am I him? Oh, Lord Tata says elsewhere, and I'm just gonna mention this, but I want you to write this down. Once you I'll translate in a second he says for in the law.

01:10:47--> 01:10:54

Either either be AB de Hyeon so you could write this down when a law wants good for his service when the law was a different sermon.

01:10:58--> 01:11:03

celebra who gets to add Maddie Hill has Anna man Colby.

01:11:05--> 01:11:08

He makes

01:11:09--> 01:11:12

his good deeds invisible to him.

01:11:15--> 01:11:17

Makes us good deeds and visible to him.

01:11:20--> 01:11:28

Well, if Bob Solow Marie salado is Mr. Hill has an a macabre, he was about to be here melissani

01:11:29--> 01:11:46

and diverts him from mentioning them with his tongue. So he removes those good deeds that seeing those good deeds he removes them from his heart and mind. And he diverts him from mentioning them with his tongue.

01:11:50--> 01:11:53

Are you not done yet? Read that back to me. Hmm.

01:11:57--> 01:12:04

He makes his good deeds invisible to him meaning from the heart and mind. Yeah, and diverts him from mentioning it with his tongue, right?

01:12:06--> 01:12:11

A nice color was Chava who bureau Yeti them be he

01:12:13--> 01:12:16

and he preoccupies him

01:12:17--> 01:12:20

with the focus on his sins.

01:12:23--> 01:12:30

What alone was good for you? You don't even see your good deeds. All you recognize is your sins.

01:12:32--> 01:12:33

One second.

01:12:34--> 01:12:47

And he reoccupied him with I don't know, shuttle ob bureau at DMV preoccupies him by, by by causing him to focus on his sins caused him to focus on his sins.

01:12:48--> 01:12:54

For laziness, by name he had tired whole agenda. And so

01:12:56--> 01:13:02

he is always thinking of them and he his sins until he antigen

01:13:04--> 01:13:18

and they that focus on his sins and erasing those sins and doing good deeds that will remove the sins and asking the law for instead file for his sins. That becomes his path to gender.

01:13:22--> 01:13:32

Color in this part here is is the crux of the affair for in America could be laminal man

01:13:33--> 01:13:41

roofie Amina can be wrong year to who? Woman and Lisa Annie, the crew who

01:13:42--> 01:13:43

he says because

01:13:45--> 01:13:50

the actions the deeds that have been accepted, and he Biola

01:13:52--> 01:14:02

are removed from the heart. That is you don't think about them. They are removed from the heart. You don't think about them. And they are not mentioned by the tongue.

01:14:06--> 01:14:13

But in the midst of cobalamin Allah man roofie Amina calbuco, who are mentally Sani dico who

01:14:15--> 01:14:30

seven okay methodical routine for you and his routine. Now, what's interesting about that is what is he saying excepted actions are those which in the

01:14:31--> 01:14:55

Islamic terminology, those that are metaphor in the law they've been raised to Allah right. It's which is our G like when you when you think about the Hadith of the Prophet Isaiah salatu salam, and even some of the ads in the Quran talks about those are men. The Torah facts were last time they raised to Allah. Those are the ones that are accepted by Allah. If they are raised to Allah, they no longer in your heart.

01:14:57--> 01:15:00

They no longer in your heart. You don't even consider

01:15:01--> 01:15:01


01:15:08--> 01:15:08


01:15:12--> 01:15:13

No, go ahead, guys, thank

01:15:17--> 01:15:18


01:15:28--> 01:15:41

That is that that's a sign and that's for us, we want to get it out of our minds. So that it won't be on our tongues that we won't even think about it. And so we don't talk about it, I don't remember hamdulillah

01:15:42--> 01:15:48

and, you know, panela you may experience this, you may experience this throughout your life.

01:15:49--> 01:16:20

You know, it's especially a philosophy that Allah blesses you with a, a life that is long when you've done many good deeds. And people come and say, I remember this, and you did that. And what are you only remember? And that's a great thing. That's a great thing. And the things that you do remember, you should try to forget, let that be for loss fans out, you don't ever want to mention it, you don't want to come back. And you definitely if you've done something for somebody, you don't want to come back into monopoly. And believe that it's it's you did somebody a favor.

01:16:21--> 01:16:22


01:16:23--> 01:16:25

Willemstad. Now,

01:16:26--> 01:16:37

again, even that has some tough seal, meaning that there's some detail, because sometimes it is permissible to mention a favor that you've done for somebody

01:16:39--> 01:16:51

for a reason, or for a good reason. Now, especially sometimes parents have to remind the children of certain things to so that they won't be

01:16:52--> 01:17:37

any, that they won't fall into the sin of being unduly faithful to their parents. And so they may have to mention certain things. But But again, even that, there's there's a way that that that should be done, and it should never be coming from the place of entitlement. Right? A believer has to avoid that disease of entitlement with everything. Never feeling like you are deserving of something. Now the opposite of that is to despair. And you have to be careful not to fall into that category where you feel like I can't do anything right. I'm just not good enough right now. You're never gonna be good enough. Right? So to deserve allows reward. You're never going to be that good.

01:17:38--> 01:17:57

But you can strive to the point where you feel like hopefully Allah Subhana Allah have mercy only and you should never despair from a las pantallas mercy and allies who Jill's Mercy is far more than his anger and is called up let's just finish this last paragraph inshallah. Then if there are any questions, I will take them shall not.

01:18:01--> 01:18:42

Did everybody get this statement from McCann? Type the last thing let me just Emerald claim says something that is profound. So Colorado setup in the lab that Leanna locati SFAs will be held Jenna, a servant may do a sin which gets him into Jenna. Well, yeah, Mullen has an attempt for your tobyhanna and he does a good deed and because of it enters the fire. colocate they said how's that color yellow Katia? finatus altona spiny. Either Dakota Han edema was the color was the law, he will abandon a llama. We have one customer within the lobby. He was sad and horrible who were kibou Hmm. So he says that he does descend. And so it just kind of remains his focus. It's he's always thinking

01:18:42--> 01:19:26

about it. And when he thinks about it, he regrets what he's done. And he turns to a loss of data and he races to have it erased, and he back doing good deeds. And he stands in front of a loss pantalla broken with Yanni with with total humility, and all of his arrogance and his ego dissipates, and that that causes him to answer, gentlemen, he says, well, Yamato Hasina, he says, and he does a good deed for that is Allah Nussbaum ama. But in all he does is think about that good deed is right, it becomes this focus, you're all happy to be here we are Ted to be here. And he sees it meaning that and he sees that he's done something good. He considers it to be a favor upon somebody upon a loss

01:19:26--> 01:19:37

of hands on. And we had to kept both behind and it makes them become arrogant because of that good deed had yet Hola. And so the answer is the fire will long stand. That's a lie.

01:19:38--> 01:19:42

And lie, you know, we asked not to punish us with the fire

01:19:44--> 01:19:45


01:19:49--> 01:20:00

From the other benefits of acknowledging the loss from the other benefits of acknowledging a loss of partners is that it makes that person praise the one who's really entitled

01:20:00--> 01:20:24

deserving of praise, that is the law, not praise of oneself but rather acknowledges the fact that all praise and has been duly led belongs to a law alone Why? Just as one acknowledges the fact that the grace he bests in and the boundaries one is blessed with a law alone, this spinner benefits manifest the perfection

01:20:25--> 01:21:08

of one star hade. Yeah, so so on number on page 54, where we are put a star next to that paragraph, okay, from the other benefits. And remind me next week to read from an AI that deals specifically with this topic of recognizing that all favors are from a loss of hands on. And so the first benefit that he mentioned is what that it removes a little bit. And the second one is that you actually praise the one that deserves to be praised. When you recognize that the favors are from Allah, the first benefit is what that it removes vanity and your ego. And number two that you attribute the favors to the one who deserves that praise, who is a loss of habitat and you don't accept any praise

01:21:08--> 01:21:09

for yourself. Now.

01:21:11--> 01:21:27

That being said, a person will never have a firm foothold in the right move on my form of aid until after one acknowledges and experiences all that which has been said everything that was mentioned before, as soon as one comes.

01:21:28--> 01:22:00

As soon as one comes to recognize this 111 plant is falling firm on its ground. And as soon as the heart experiences that one will then read it's true that no worldly grace or blessing can ever match. That is it means that is it that a person will then lavish in the Mahabharata love and intimacy I have a law while basking in the image and the ability of his company and longing as shown to the moment of meeting him

01:22:02--> 01:22:27

and luxury he'll feel really good in his remembrance and worship true and ever in his worship. Truly there is no good in life for a person when the path leading to all that is blocked. And when the hardest shunned from all that as a person if this guy is as the Lord described, in the I attribute to pleasing man, some of whom yet kulu will you'll hear him on Amazon for so far. Yeah, and

01:22:28--> 01:22:41

let them eat and enjoy themselves and be diverted by false hope. But they're going to know that they will definitely know for so here on the moon. So again, just to end on this point.

01:22:43--> 01:23:11

He's saying until a person acknowledges what has proceeded knowledge is that all of these favors are from Allah subhana wa Tada. And until they stop seeing themselves as favoring, or that they are offering favors to allow to the dean, that they will never reach that station have to wait. He said as soon as one comes to recognize this.

01:23:12--> 01:23:27

One deeply roots his footing on its ground and as soon as the heart experiences that, and in other words, when you experience when a person experiences that to hate, which will only be recognized by understanding that all favors are from Allah.

01:23:30--> 01:23:56

Then it will reach it will reap a fruit that no worldly grace or blessing can ever match. That is a person who will experience that love of Allah Subhana tada and the intimacy of being in the company of Allah subhana wa tada which is which is one of the things that a person measures doing at Caf, by the way, which is why they're a bad at Caf being alone is very important.

01:23:58--> 01:24:46

Wanting to meet Allah Subhana Allah was shoka in early college, he we talked about that last week or the week before he a person will not truly experience those things until they understand that every favor is from Allah subhana wa tada that this salon and again, you know, if we go back to the very beginning of where we started when we when we started Step five, is that Allah Subhana Allah is truly blessed you is blessed me is blessed us to be from the people who stand in saliva, it's truly a blessing truly a favor from Allah subhanaw taala that none of us deserve, that none of us are entitled to. And when we get over that disease of entitlement than the last tranche, Allah will open

01:24:46--> 01:24:59

up so many other doors for us. So many other favors will be given to us because we recognize that we don't deserve them. And when you recognize that you don't deserve those favors from the last fantana

01:25:00--> 01:25:30

You more, when you think that you deserve something, you're going to be caught up in what? not recognizing the favor from Allah. But why didn't you get a particular favorite because you deserved it You worked so hard for so long stat. So who's going to bring back the first five, and then next week, inshallah we'll cover six in the conclusion. So don't bring back the first five steps that are necessary for salon to become the core, what I

01:25:31--> 01:25:33

that's your exit visa, by the way,

01:25:36--> 01:25:40

you will not be able to exit you can work together on it, like good

01:25:41--> 01:25:45

to have a class by which means what

01:25:46--> 01:25:58

and sincerity is is, is what to the action. It's it is the it is the motivation, it's why you're doing that particular action time second step,

01:25:59--> 01:26:07

acidic as being true to the action itself. So the first is towhee, the moron

01:26:08--> 01:26:27

nanny that you are singling out who you're doing the action for. And the second is to hadal irata. That is that you have focus and that you have gathered, your will and that particular action, so that you are focused on that action solely. Now, number three is

01:26:29--> 01:26:31

number three, the third step

01:26:33--> 01:26:37

is an metabo, which is

01:26:38--> 01:26:43

emulation of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam compliance to his teachings

01:26:45--> 01:26:48

in the Salah, and and everything else. Number four,

01:26:50--> 01:26:59

as Sam, correct is a sand and that worship, and we mentioned that there are certain steps that will help you attain the sand. What are they?

01:27:03--> 01:27:08

worshiping the laws, if you see him is the is the definition of

01:27:11--> 01:27:14

knowing and understanding his names and attributes. Number two

01:27:16--> 01:27:16


01:27:18--> 01:27:30

emptying the heart is emptying the heart of everything except for a loss of hands on knowing that he knows what's in your heart will lie will I listen? Again, these are

01:27:33--> 01:28:14

all of the steps that we'll talk about have to be combined, right in order for salaat to become the joy. But it's going to take time like with everything else, you have to work at it to perfect it. So you have to but you have to do what you can. And each of these stages is going to get better as you go along and shallow tada with the help of Allah. But I'm telling you if there's one step that you can take tonight, as you stand to pray, tomorrow as you stand to pray for a budget, just remember and be cognizant of the fact that Allah knows what's in your heart, be embarrassed to stand in front of Allah, knowing that he knows what's in your heart. And it's not just him.

01:28:16--> 01:28:45

Right, like, next time you stay in the pray, just think about that. I don't I can't have anything else here because it would it's an embarrassment to stand in front of Allah, asking him for guidance asking him for his trophies. And, and, and at the same, but I'm busy thinking about something else. And then think about your position. And somebody coming to ask you something, but they're texting. Are they talking on the phone? Are they on a video chat? And they trying to talk to you at the same time? They say we don't say multitasking?

01:28:47--> 01:29:30

And multitasking? No, no, no, not not with salaat there is no multitasking with the salon, stand in front of a last minute data and clear your heart. So for sin, which is the fourth step, knowing a lot of transactions through his names and attributes clearing the heart and number three, striving, striving which applies to all of them, which applies to all of that but Allah when Allah Allah man and Martini, right? So knowing that a lot of hands Allah is with the ones who are more senior, the people have accent, but he started that I say, Hola, Dena, jahad rufina and at the end, those who scribe in our path, so striving for last type, the fifth step is

01:29:32--> 01:29:47

attesting and acknowledging a Los Angeles favors and his grace, not feeling entitled, not feeling entitled. That's so important for us to recognize well, oh, somebody recently bought a Canon Reno homicide, panic alarm.
