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

hamdulillah no matter who want to stay in or who want to stop

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

when we learn Himanshu lolium who see now we'll see ya Dr. Medina. Yeah the love for them will deliver on me you will further ha de la

00:00:15--> 00:00:31

Chateau La la la la la la la sharika or shadow Anna Mohammedan. Abdo, who was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was happy he was seldom at the Sleeman cathinone de oma Dean McGarrett.

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

Today, shallows the 10th and final class, we will be going over the advice of rebuttal claim by Mahalo to Anna, to a friend of his.

00:00:45--> 00:00:58

And I know it says number nine right here to section number two, it's the 10th class that wasn't switched hamdulillah. And before we actually get into the meat of the class,

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

just want to

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

thank Allah subhana wa tada

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

for

00:01:08--> 00:01:23

the opportunity that he's given us to embark upon this journey of beneficial knowledge. Because this book has been tremendous, and it's rarely studied in English.

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

Even in Arabic, I mean, there's, you know,

00:01:28--> 00:01:51

you can find Hamdulillah, there's ample amount of sugar for this reseller for this treaties, but subpoena law, the depth that it will pay him, the depth of his knowledge is is phenomenal. And it comes out in this in this small book, but there's so much benefit in it. And

00:01:52--> 00:02:09

it's, it's interesting, I don't want to belabor this point. But I remember, it's a correction that needs to be made. Or maybe we just need to talk about it. In the first lesson, we covered the in the biography of imminent claim.

00:02:10--> 00:02:30

It is mentioned in here and in this in this book, in the transcript and their biography, it'll claim that the hubby is from his ptolemies. Right. It's from his students. We came back the second week, and I was asking who some of the students and somebody said it them and I was like, man,

00:02:32--> 00:02:38

and I forgot that even it was only the week before I forgot that they mentioned that that'd be his from his students.

00:02:40--> 00:02:50

So in any event, I was like, let me do go back to bucket of booze aids, rahimullah go back to his

00:02:51--> 00:02:58

bio of imminent claim because his is the most extensive bio known, and in the Arabic language don't even Don't call him.

00:02:59--> 00:03:14

So interestingly enough, Bukhara Jose mentions that under under a shoe, you have the hubby under his shapes, he mentioned f1. And he mentioned the shapes of Immanuel Chi, and he mentioned that they're heavy.

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

Then you go out to the students of even Okay, and he mentioned that they're heavy.

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

And he doesn't explain. Right. So

00:03:25--> 00:03:33

a lot of people copied him. And they just right from his shoe, the heavy from his students that heavy. So I think that's probably what they did here.

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

So I went back to

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

a book by the heavy is called a German mortise mahad. De

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

and he mentioned

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

it mentions a a

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

bio of milk I am in that book.

00:03:52--> 00:04:32

Now, the reason why the second time when it was mentioned it, that'd be his from his students is because it just didn't it didn't click with me because at that time, he is 18 years old and even okay, right. The fact they die before him doesn't really matter because there are you know, he has students that die before him and that's I mean that that happens. I mean, you know, the shake out lives of students, just like a parent outlives their children sometimes that that happens but usually usually when the shake is 18 years old at a from the same place and you know it both from domestic doesn't didn't click.

00:04:33--> 00:04:39

So I read with Debbie said in the measurement mythos which actually wasn't printed when

00:04:41--> 00:04:41

when

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

bookatable z or himolla shapeoko z when he did his biochemical claim on marginal costs hadn't been printed yet. So anyway, that'd be mentioned that he, him and him used to go out and they were weird.

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

Read to the same shapes. So maybe, maybe in that sense,

00:05:08--> 00:05:39

maybe he benefited something from imminent claim. So maybe they will say he's a shape. But I didn't get the impression from that, from that Bible that he actually sat at the feet of him and okay. And in fact, he calls him and we'll call him a Mufti mm and muffin into the end, like he gives him all these great titles. And then he says at the end, he said, but he used to be very impressed with his own opinion. This is what he said about even Okay, now, it doesn't, that doesn't necessarily mean that.

00:05:42--> 00:05:51

Like he, he didn't favor him or anything like that, what it means and a lot of fans, Allah knows best. They say the same thing about shackled Islam. He was real.

00:05:53--> 00:06:36

When it came to the way he saw things, he wasn't taking no for an answer. But that was because panela I mean, if you read his books, you will see how much knowledge he actually had. So for somebody that can argue with him about something, and he knows the argument of that person better than that person knows their own argument. Right? In other words, you come and you present this opinion. And he's saying, Listen, he said we should do for that. And the person I mentioned three things, he says, Okay, you got anything else. And the person says, no, that should be enough. He says, I got 20 pills for the opinion that you have, and I can review all of them, right? So it

00:06:36--> 00:07:16

doesn't mean that a person is conceited, or that a person has Qyburn or arrogant or anything like that. It just means that they feel very strongly about the opinion because of how much knowledge because of how much knowledge they had. But I didn't get the impression I was saying all that to say, did not get the impression that they have he considered himself to be from the students of even Okay, him or him or lozada nor did I get the the other impression that was one of his students. And if you look through the books, I mean, you don't find too many people mentioning too many of the ones who mentioned the bio of animal kingdom, that that'd be was from his students or from his shoe,

00:07:17--> 00:07:32

it appears to be that they were a Quran. And he which means that they were peers, you know, even though they have he was was much older, not much but and he was a generation before even will claim was that he was born in 673 they won't claim was born when he

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

left when he died, he died in 7691 691. Like, alright, hamdulillah I think we already got our juices flowing, but

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

you can still ask,

00:07:47--> 00:08:01

just ask the new questions, inshallah. Just a new, why is recognition of one shortcomings necessary for so that becoming the joy of your eye?

00:08:02--> 00:08:12

Number two, why is it better for a person to be conscious of his flaws in his performance of good deeds? Here, I guess the question is more?

00:08:14--> 00:08:20

Why is it better for you to recognize your flaws than it is for you to

00:08:21--> 00:08:36

believe that you've done a good deed? Why is it better for you to actually recognize your flaws than to see your sin and your actions? Yeah. Do you deserve to be rewarded by a law for your good deeds explained?

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

And last? Why?

00:08:42--> 00:09:06

Why does intention and strong willed strong willpower? Why do they need to be accompanied by fear and hope? Yeah. I think romantically maybe shake hands with intention and strong will because it's too I think we can use do well on No, we got to use does he does they do they write so intention is strong wills as to

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

why the intention is strong willpower needs to be accompanied by fear and hope. Okay, fine. So we will cover those in Charlotte's

00:09:20--> 00:09:20

Web.

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

Okay.

00:09:24--> 00:09:44

All right. So as you can see, the two weeks ago, which was our ninth class, we covered a testing two favors, and we were supposed to cover recognizing shortcomings, which we'll cover today and shallow tiling that will take the four principles in knowledge and action. Actually, maybe this could be four principles

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

that serve as the core of the dean, which is similar to something that we've covered before, but you'll see how it ties in being the nightside. So, again, what we're going to start with today is page 56 which which is called

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

Here, the sixth element, right? So we're talking about the six steps that are necessary to have to enjoy your prayer for prayer to become a quote, rotta Anan lakhiani for it to become the joy of your act. So we covered a class, and we covered setup. And what's the difference between sincerity and civic.

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

It's the difference between sincerity and truthfulness.

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

Follow

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

while you're doing it, solely for the purpose

00:10:43--> 00:11:16

of being true that you are doing good. So, so when we talk about sincerity, we're talking about what the the motive being purely for Allah subhanho wa Taala pushing you towards that action, and yet we're talking about salaat. But honestly, this covers all acts of worship, right? Whereas being true, means that in that action itself, you are purely dedicated to that action. Okay, and you're not distracted time.

00:11:17--> 00:11:32

So, one, I mean, let's just talk practically, what that means is that if something other than the pleasure of Allah is pushing you towards salon, okay? The you're not enjoying the salon.

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

Right? This is why many children do not enjoy salon.

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

Because what's pushing them to select? Is their parents telling them to write, not that they're actually

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

doing it to please a loss of habitat,

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

which is normal?

00:11:54--> 00:12:00

Is what a prophecy Some have said, What Moodle have commanded children to pray at the age of seven.

00:12:01--> 00:12:31

And you start teaching them at that time, right? everything that they do so panela, even the things that you that you want them to stay away from? are the things that you want them to do, you have to encourage a class, right? Don't just not do it, because I'm telling you not to do it. So I'm not going to be around all the time. But Allah Subhana Allah is watching you, right? reminding them of them, trying to get them to enjoy the prayer through a class, right?

00:12:32--> 00:12:42

Similarly, and if a person is coming to the masjid because they want other people to see them or they don't want people to say, why does this also come to the masjid that's why they come into the rescue.

00:12:44--> 00:12:54

They're not going to be enjoying the prayer. Because what's pushing them the motive, the motivation behind it is not sincerely for a loss of Hannah who was had

00:12:56--> 00:13:36

the Civic part, right, which is that you are true to that action. You are true to Allah Subhana Allah through that action. In other words, you have gathered up your willpower to be for that action, you're not being distracted by anything else. If you are distracted in your salon, okay, then it is going to take you away from totally enjoying the prayer. Because part of the enjoyment of the salon is that you are conscious of the things that you're saying. So when you're saying Suppan, I'll be allowing and you're allowing yourself to think about that. When you say Dina subaltern study

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

interesting.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

I know we get I get sidetracked too much but I think this is interesting

00:13:45--> 00:14:35

and I just actually noticed this very recently and maybe it's almost like honey bunny does tuxedo sofa you still don't associate sort of play when she can eat the sorts of fatty her he can talk about this a little more but it Dena a Ceylon upon Alma stocky, we always translate it as what Guide us to the straight path, which is why I think that we often don't understand as we talked about very early on it's not just guidance to the parent that's also what guidance on the path Aloma Dena was it didn't mean any guidance and and grant us sedan right which is that we stay on the path and we stay you know, until we hit our target.

00:14:37--> 00:15:00

Some of them will first serene have mentioned that this is this is important is actually understood from the fact that there's no half job. So it doesn't say Idina liselotte and Wooster team Deena Ella as sirata monster team. It says Dino Serato. Mr. Key right. Now, how do you translate that to capture the meaning? I don't I haven't thought enough.

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

About that, but you know, hopefully,

00:15:03--> 00:15:25

many of you are studying Arabic and know Arabic. You know, we can come up perhaps with a better way of talking about that in the English language because it doesn't just mean Guide us to the straight path. It also means guide us on the straight path, which is why there is no preposition there. Okay, just says Idina. I see Walter and Mr. T. So

00:15:27--> 00:15:52

the point here was, we were talking about civic. Oh, so the point here is that when you're reciting surah, Al Fatiha, you know, thinking about these meanings, right, thinking about that conversation that you're having with illustrator, that's part of enjoying salaat as part of enjoying the salon, and that's part of your civic, your truthfulness in in the salon. Right?

00:15:54--> 00:16:34

The third thing we covered was compliance and adherence, meaning that it is done as the Prophet alayhi salatu salam did it. The prophet SAW it, someone said, Pray as you have, as you, as you see me pray, right. We haven't witnessed the Prophet it is select to sit and pray. But the companions of the messengers of Allah who it was send them have brought us over 400 narrations of the prayer of the prophet Isaiah select was sent in to the point that there is some things that we may know about the saliva of the prophet Isaiah is Salatu was sent in and just bear with me, that some of the companions may not have known about the salon of the Prophet it is selected sitting in the in the

00:16:34--> 00:17:11

sense that they did not necessarily witness all of that the prophets aligning with some of them. For example, have the love of Mr. Lilo, Tana and who has no aim other campaigns, they some of the companions pray differently, oh my God alone Santa and who, when he would go down for sujood, he will go down on his knees. Others for most of the companions will go down in their hands. They obviously were praying the way that they saw the Prophet is allowed to sit and pray. But some of them may have seen it differently. Some of the companions of the Prophet It is similar to saying that the narrator's have Hadeeth, right, but some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

wasallam, may have only met the prophet SAW the sun at one time.

00:17:15--> 00:17:59

Like, like many of those who perform had to deal with 100,000 companions, right? Some of them only saw it but with that Allah Subhana, Allah bless them to be from amongst the companions. And there's no doubt that when you live in a in an era and you witness that person, nobody who comes after the companions is going to be as good as the companions, none of them are going to have the virtue of the companions. But when we talk about strictly academic knowledge, right, just to know, there are things that we may know by virtue of all of those narrations of the salon of the Prophet, somebody or something that which maybe some of those campaigns did not know. Okay, and again, I'm I'm trying

00:17:59--> 00:18:44

to qualify that to say that that does not mean that anybody who came after the campaign's is better than the campaigns in fact, when some of them asked, who's better Omar bin Abdulaziz for him mohalla or more iwea while the Allahu Tagore. No. And basically, Sam told me about him a long time he said that there's no comparison whatsoever between amadablam disease and more Alia, motherlode China, No, in fact, he said something along the lines of that amadablam disease does not equal the toe of Mongolia while the Allahu China no because nobody who came after the campaigns while the Allahu anhu can be compared to the campaigns, right? This is why that whole concept of amadablam disease being

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

the fifth Khalifa the fifth righteous halifa something that should be avoided by Allison.

00:18:51--> 00:19:10

And it is you know, some state Some say that this was actually invented by the CIA to lower the status of why we're on the low end. In any event, compliance and adherence means that we pray, according to our knowledge of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prayed.

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

And that that is something that you keep in mind as you're praying because it will bring joy to your prayer.

00:19:20--> 00:19:43

And also having the inward state of the Prophet sallallahu it was send them in his salon, that who sure that the Prophet some light was on them, instructed us to and then we moved on to a sin that is worshipping Allah Subhana Allah is if you see him and even if you cannot get to that level knowing that Allah subhana wa tada is watching you. So that's why it says sand and morasca.

00:19:44--> 00:19:57

And then we also covered the two weeks ago and during class attesting to the favors of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, meaning why what did what does that mean?

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

Knowing that everything you have that is good is from a loss friends out alone, how does that or how should that affect the prayer

00:20:14--> 00:20:21

by understanding that you are not doing the law of favor by praying that he is the one who is

00:20:22--> 00:20:26

giving you the favor of prayer.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

And I'm telling you, that should change your supply to know that when you stand up for supply,

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

there's so many other people know they should be praying, but they're not. They don't have the willpower.

00:20:41--> 00:20:50

Even though they know, so many other people don't even know that they should be praying. But Allah subhanaw taala favored you with the knowledge and the willpower.

00:20:52--> 00:21:33

And the way that you're praying and the fact that you're praying in the messenger, when many of the messages have reclosed or whatever, is that even a term closed again, right, because of the restrictions and so on. So for me, surprised a lot just recognizing how many favors or lost parents Allah has given you. And he, even if su panela beer, things that you can't do in a salon, you can't stand up and salon, you have to sit down, realize that there are people who wish that they could just sit down and pray, the fact that you can make will do and other people have things in their veins and and they can't even make will they sit in a hospital bed and they can't make will do. And

00:21:33--> 00:21:50

last minute I was giving you that opportunity. And he just those are favorites from last time. And we have to recognize that and realize that those are favorites from Allah, and we're not doing the last penciler any favor by by worshipping Him. And now we make it to our point today which is step six,

00:21:51--> 00:22:45

which is recognizing our deficiencies, recognizing deficiencies. Step six, number one, Allah writes over you are greater than your obedience. Number two, all what is the king and does not owe His servants anything. Number three, your deeds will not save you like these are some of the salient points that are coming right now to read on page 46 and Shama six elements, blaming oneself for inadequate efforts, it is to maintain the feeling that your endeavors and efforts towards the law are always inadequate. And the and that the right of the law upon you is greater therefore your obedience worship and servitude and UI must be greater than that which you perform as the level of

00:22:45--> 00:23:37

your server to to a law must be fit his glory. And our Yeah, I have a different translation. For this paragraph, I'll just I'll read it because perhaps it give us a little bit a little clearer inshallah. So it's, it's when a servant strives his utmost and fulfilling an order or a command, right, and sacrifices himself in abundance. Okay? It even even though even still, right? He is what he is doing is inadequate, and the right of a loss of parents either is greater than his striving. Okay, that's, I think that's the point that maybe that last, so the right that Allah Subhana data has over you, is greater than the striving that you are doing. So even though you're striving and

00:23:37--> 00:23:47

even though it may be great, you're still not actually fulfilling Allah Subhana Allah is right over you. Okay. I think that that's the that's the main idea that

00:23:48--> 00:24:24

that he was trying to get across here, okay. So, then it says, Therefore your obedience right, Your Worship and your servitude should be much greater than what it is basically. And that what Allison parents Anna requires, okay. What does it say here as the level of your servitude to a loss of data, right should be in accordance with his glory and his power which it cannot be okay which it cannot be, like,

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

mesh.

00:24:27--> 00:25:00

If the service and subjects of Kings exhibit hobby gods have taught me respect to wrong, reverence, adult player, out of sheer dread and the habit and sincerity which they have, which he has as a nurse, towards their masters to the extent that they dedicate the body limbs and hearts to serve them, then it be fits more that the King of all kings medical, medical, my Luke, and the Lord of the heavens, and the

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

be treated not only in a similar manner. But

00:25:05--> 00:25:28

yeah, so let's, I think if we can, we can sum up some things here. Right? So the, the issue here is that there are several benefits to seeing the imperfection in your worship right now. And we'll talk about this a little, perhaps a little later. And maybe we can just talk about it. Now.

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

I don't want anybody to understand from this,

00:25:36--> 00:26:07

that we should despair from a laws mercy, because of the fact that my worship is never perfect. And therefore, a law is going to punish me because my worship is not perfect, we should never get to that point, right. But there are many benefits in seeing these flaws and seeing that I haven't done enough or see even the things that you have done that it that there's still some imperfection in it. Right?

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

So the first follow

00:26:12--> 00:26:12

up here.

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

First is,

00:26:16--> 00:26:26

this pushes you to strive harder, right? If you feel like you have already perfected your worship, what happens after that,

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

you get comfortable, there's usually a drop off, right? So the fact that you still see that, look, it's not perfect, it can still be better, my salaat can be better, my fasting can be better, my, my, my Hajj can be better, my, you know, any anything, my charity can be better, when you see that it can be better, that there's a deficiency, then it should push you to strive hard. Whereas if you already feel like you've done enough, right, then you get complacent. And normally that leads to regression in that not progress. Play. Seeing the flaws in your worship. Number two, encourages repentance. And that's an that's towba by itself is a great

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

deed.

00:27:12--> 00:27:25

It is a great deed. And it's one of the best acts of worship, right. But if you don't see any flaws in yourself and in your worship and your character, then you're not going to make Toba as much as you should know

00:27:26--> 00:27:56

seeing the flaws in your worship three prevents vanity and we talked the last class we talked about a little bit right? Which is to be to be conceited to have you know be amazed with with your deeds and just oh wow, look at you know, Mashallah I prayed 40 days in a row in the masjid without missing any salaat. So I can't be in one effort. And I'm saying from the fire. Hello.

00:27:58--> 00:27:58

Hello.

00:27:59--> 00:28:26

Is just to kind of believe that right that you that you have basically reached some level of perfection that last month Allah basically has to accept for me, You did the right. So when you see the flaws in your worship, you will not become more agenda. bionic. Yeah. Seeing flaws in your worship. Number four, prevents Kippur arrogance. Yeah. And

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

I say you have a whole

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

a whole treatise on arrogance, no, as you say.

00:28:35--> 00:28:39

So what's the difference between number three and four?

00:28:42--> 00:28:42

Okay.

00:28:44--> 00:29:06

Ah, okay. So, so yeah, it's, it's about who it's in relation to right? Because the logic is about how you see yourself. And COVID is how you see other people. Because the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said, What a cute little bottle heck is to reject the truth is to have disdain for Welcome to ness, right? Which is to be little people.

00:29:07--> 00:29:46

Right? So you kibber is it makes you belittle other people, right? So that the fact that you don't, you don't feel like you have any flaws in your worship, and then you start looking at, well, this person has this flaw, and that person has that flaw and that person's not doing this and this one's not doing that. Right. Whereas if you can turn it, so that's what that's the difference. So our job is about how you see yourself. And Kim It is about how you look at other people. And a lot of times one will lead to the other. So if you're amazed with your own deeds, and then you start comparing, then it's going to lead to kibin which is arrogance. The Prophet is allowed to sit and say, let's

00:29:46--> 00:29:55

call agenda Tim and Kenneth he called me humans call 13 min tinman keep the one who has even a mustard seed of kibber will not enter Jenna

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

yeah

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

As opposed to a

00:30:05--> 00:30:30

Yeah, I think that's I think that's accurate. Which is that usually when we think about an era jab, okay, or self amazement, if you will, it's, it's usually contained to the actions. So this person feels like, you know, his salon is perfect, or his hygiene was perfect or whatever is not the overall

00:30:32--> 00:30:40

quality, if you will, whereas kibber is an overall quality where a person just feels like they are better than then other people.

00:30:41--> 00:30:51

Not just that their actions are better than other people's actions, but they are in fact better than other people. And will lie Subhana Allah, it this this is that

00:30:52--> 00:30:57

this is when a person has to just really worry about themselves.

00:30:58--> 00:31:41

You know, it really does lead to that. And I, you know, I'm not talking about not doing I'm a model for Nana mongkol and, you know, commanding good and forbidding evil, but what I'm saying is, is that don't you don't take your salon, your fans thing and start comparing yourself with other people, especially those who are lower than you when it comes to a bad you look to those who are higher and you try to compete with them, right to get to a level if they did, that competition with them will keep you striving to please Allah subhanaw taala when it comes to dunya you look You don't look at the people who have more than you. You look at those who who are lower than you as the Prophet is

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

allowed to say I'm instructed acidity Rahim Allah to Allah

00:31:46--> 00:32:06

says on this particular topic that every time a person finishes an act of worship, he should seek forgiveness from a loss of hands Allah for his shortcomings. seek forgiveness for his shortcomings. And thank Allah Subhana Allah for enabling him to do it. So what do we say after salaat?

00:32:08--> 00:32:11

Stop for law, stop for the law.

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

Right? I mean,

00:32:15--> 00:32:56

and if if we were really conscious of the things that we're saying, and why we're saying them inshallah, tada, it'll lead us to these stations, if you will. A servant, an ad that acknowledges that his state of servitude, okay, okay. Pay attention here. Why pay attention? This is this is an important point. It's going to help us understand the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam A lot of people don't understand, even though we claim to know it, all right. So, I want us to do this next, these next, this next page and a half or so, is very important. Not sure, if a sermon

00:32:57--> 00:33:24

acknowledges that his state of servitude udia does not fulfill or it is not even close to fulfilling to do rites of below upon him, then that person will realize his or her shortcomings and will thus hasten to seek a loss forgiveness. He will also he or she also will apologize for their deficiencies in adequate worship and obedience. Yeah, and to do that.

00:33:26--> 00:33:45

It is for this reason, we are in more need of his forgiveness due to our inadequate worship and obedience, then we are in need of asking for his reward for the worship and obedience that we have performed. Okay. All right, let's let's take a step back. He says, It is for this reason

00:33:46--> 00:33:49

that we are more in need of a loss forgiveness,

00:33:50--> 00:34:12

then we are in need of asking his reward for the worship and obedience we have performed. Let that sink in. It is for what reason? So if we go back, he says when you acknowledge that your state of ur will do does not even come close to fulfilling the rights that allows him to honor has upon you.

00:34:14--> 00:34:22

You realize your shortcomings. Okay. So we have shortcomings in answering the command.

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

And we have shortcomings in the commands that we do answer.

00:34:29--> 00:34:53

What does that mean? We haven't done everything we're supposed to do. Right? And then even the things that we were supposed to do even in those we have, we have shortcomings. All right. So it is for that reason, that we are more in need of a loss forgiveness than we are and asking for for him to reward us for the good that we have done.

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

It'll become clear. I just want you to understand that right now. Maybe not

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

I understand why yet but just just keep falling shallow. Now, I just want you to understand what he's saying. And then we'll break it down a little more shallow. Now, there should be no prize or credit to be claimed by a person,

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

even if he or she was able to fulfill all the requirements of their state of servitude to a law, okay? So the reality is what we do not fulfill the rights of a Buddha. Right? That's, that's the reality. So we either do things that we're not supposed to do,

00:35:36--> 00:35:36

or

00:35:38--> 00:36:06

we don't do things that we are supposed to do. Or we do them and we do the things that we're supposed to do, but they are deficient. Right? I mean, who can who can literally say to themselves that right now when we pray selected salacia that just saw that was perfect? Who's gonna? Who's gonna claim that? Who's gonna claim that there was no deficiency whatsoever? In the side? I don't think any of us is that arrogant.

00:36:08--> 00:36:34

Or Marja? minasi. type. So so he then says, that's, that's not what he says. But even if somebody fulfill all the requirements of an ad, everything perfect, abstained from everything he was supposed to stay away from, you did everything he was supposed to do exactly how you were supposed to do it. Then he says, What?

00:36:36--> 00:37:02

Because in this case, because in that case, one would only be fulfilling the natural role of his status, as a servant to his master Allah, glory be he as is required. In other words, you still shouldn't get it, you don't get any credit, and you shouldn't have any pride. You really don't deserve any reward from a loss fantana because you're actually just doing what you were supposed to do in the first place.

00:37:05--> 00:37:13

Because you are a slave, and he is the master. And slaves don't deserve compensation.

00:37:15--> 00:37:58

Now, it is obvious that a servant served his master, then, and then and then it should say, and then he requested, then he then then he requested from his master every word for service, people would have been a fool. Although in the true terms and sense of reality, is not only is not a truly as he is not true, slave. Boy, he is not truly a slave of another man, since mankind is only a servant of Allah alone for all aspects. Okay. Yeah, I will go through it. So he, so he's saying, look,

00:38:00--> 00:38:41

even if you did everything perfect, you still deserve anything, because you are what? You save a lot. And then he tries to bring it so that you can understand if we're talking about in terms of human beings, if there was a slave who went to his master and said, Listen, I did all this, I need, you know, I need to pay up. Everybody will look at him as if he's crazy. You're a slave. That's your master, you don't pay right. Now, that doesn't really work for us, because we don't. Like that's, that's beyond our ability to really fathom. Right? Not that we don't have slavery here in the United States. But that's beside the point. But I'm just saying we don't really live in a slave based

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

society. So we don't get that. But let's just change that. Let's change it up, man help you understand.

00:38:47--> 00:38:52

You tell your 10 year old child to wash the dishes. And they say, Tanner

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

how much I'm getting paid.

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

So you pay for what?

00:39:00--> 00:39:05

How much? How much? Are you paying me to wash the dishes? I mean, are we doing hourly rate we're

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

doing per dish, like how are we how we work? And how are we gonna work this out?

00:39:12--> 00:39:25

Everybody would be like, Whoa, whoa, whoa, like, That's right. That's insane. That's what he's talking about here. Everybody would look at that and say, What do you mean? How much do you get paid? Go clean your room.

00:39:26--> 00:39:36

Okay, we'll look for if I stay in there for a half hour cleaning. It's gonna be this is gonna be your rate. Okay, it takes me an hour to clean my room is gonna be Who?

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

What parent would go for that?

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

What child in the right mind would actually even say something like that. Right? So this is what he's saying here is obvious that if a servant served as master and then requested from his master or reward for his service, people would have deemed him a fool. Okay? Even though

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

In true terms, that sense of reality, he's not truly a slave of that man. It's actually a slave of a law like that that person doesn't. He's not actually a slave of that person, because they all belong to a loss instead.

00:40:15--> 00:40:18

All right, good. That being said,

00:40:19--> 00:40:43

That being said, What a lovely boy to service for their worship, which they are obligated to perform anyhow, as a service, then that is due to a loss of favor and grace that he confers upon them, although they are not entitled to receive any reward. Okay. All right. So, let's, let's answer this question up here for them.

00:40:44--> 00:40:56

Do we? Do we deserve to be rewarded by Allah? Do we deserve that we deserve to be rewarded by law? The answer is no.

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

Why? Because we are His slaves.

00:41:01--> 00:41:04

And slaves by right do not deserve

00:41:05--> 00:41:06

to be rewarded.

00:41:08--> 00:41:21

The second is that worship is our duty in the first place, you don't get thanked for duty less. Right? You don't get thanked for for duty.

00:41:22--> 00:41:41

And number three, worship in the first place is flawed, it's flawed worship, we're not actually fulfilling number two, which is our duty. So we don't deserve in that sense to be rewarded. But Allah Subhana, Allah still rewards us

00:41:43--> 00:42:36

more than even our flawed actions like multiple times of what the floor action actually is. But this is where we have to understand that this is due to a loss favour and grace that he confers upon them, although they are not entitled to receive the reward. And the the note here that you see here, which says despair, versus knowing one's place. In other words, we're not learning about this so that we despair, from a loss mercy, we learn about it so that we know our place. You are a slave of a law, you don't have a right to be conceded, you don't have a right to think that you are better than somebody else. You don't have that right. Know your place, as a slave of Allah, know that you

00:42:36--> 00:42:40

don't deserve any of the reward that Allah Subhana Allah is giving to you.

00:42:41--> 00:42:46

Not the blessings of this dunya are the blessings of the hereafter. We don't deserve it.

00:42:48--> 00:43:28

That's the that's the point that the author is trying to get across. And if we understand that, it will push us to perfect our supply even more. Because we realize that, hey, I'm just, I'm just a poor slave of Allah, I need this salon. I need to try to perfect my salon and every other act of worship. By understanding this. Understanding this, we can comprehend the meaning of the statement of the Prophet, that that he knows in Arabic. So somewhere he says, No one shall enter Paradise by virtue of his deeds. It contains as not even you

00:43:29--> 00:43:41

can reply, not even me, unless a law engulfs me with his mercy and grace. Not so the idea here we'll talk about this hadith in a minute in shallow time.

00:43:43--> 00:43:51

And the idea here is that is that we stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala humbled with And believe me, and he Subhana Allah

00:43:52--> 00:43:55

menta wa lilla

00:43:56--> 00:44:03

raffa Hola. Right, whoever humbles themselves, for Allah

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

will be raised by Allah, Allah will raise him.

00:44:09--> 00:44:57

You have to humble yourself, humble yourself for a lot in the last minutes it will be a one to ratio you don't like you don't have to be pretentious and and try to raise yourself up and allies will raise you just be humble to him and along region. So it is through this even though claim says by understanding what by understanding that we don't deserve to be rewarded by law that we're not entitled and maybe that's a better way to say this, right? That we're not entitled to allows reward by understanding that by understanding that we are His slaves, that worship is our duty that our that our worship is flogged, then it helps us to understand this Heidi that none of you. No one

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

shall enter Paradise by his

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

deeds okay. So,

00:45:03--> 00:46:00

so, let before we go over this narration which is a little different than the narration that I mentioned last Hulu I hadn't I hadn't called Jenna to be Amelie be Amelie okay by his actions, the scholars have mentioned that the interpretation of this B is the bat little evil which means as compensation for his actions, like you said for example, you should take this out and say hi that what become right yeah, you'll give me this for what as compensation for what that bad in the Arabic language is used for for compensation be amedy none of you will enter action, it says here by virtue of his deeds, okay. But But I think perhaps it would be clear as if it says as compensation for his

00:46:00--> 00:46:11

deeds, which makes which makes a lot of sense, right? Because gender is beyond anything that any we could purchase, right?

00:46:12--> 00:46:46

Except that a lot of parents out of out of His grace and mercy has purchased from the believers themselves and their wealth right? Be en la homogenic and e4, Jin hee hee gives us genda for not not that you not that you deserve genda because it and not the agenda is is equal? Yeah, I need that that's a fair compensation. It's from a last chance I was grace and mercy. It's like if somebody wanted to do a favor for you, but they didn't want to make you feel bad about it. Right? So they say well, how much would you sell me that a good laptop for?

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

We want to sell it you know whatever.

00:46:50--> 00:47:13

But you know cost about $484,000 right? I don't want to make you just feel like they giving you 30 $600 because they know you need it right? So they give you so lots of hands Allah is giving you Jen is not because Jenna like your life in your wealth is worth Jen right? Okay, so prophecy Psalm says here, no one shall enter Paradise by

00:47:15--> 00:47:19

but as compensation for his deeds. They said that not even you are a messenger of Allah Sai Sunnah.

00:47:21--> 00:47:21

Yeah,

00:47:23--> 00:48:05

there is nobody that makes will do except that the process I was rewarded for it, nobody makes a lot. nobody teaches the D nobody except that purpose. The prophesy son was the first teacher. So everything that everybody does every heart that you recite no grand promises and I was being rewarded for that. And even with that, he's not answering agenda because of and as compensation for his deeds. He says not even me unless I lost pants on and golf me with his mercy and His grace type. Let us look at the narration is another narration and insightful Hardy and Muslim. And when it comes to the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu was saying one thing is very important to understand what

00:48:05--> 00:48:10

a hadith means is that you gather up the total.

00:48:11--> 00:48:51

So all of the narrations of this particular Hadith, along with the cooperating evidence, you want to pull it all in one place, so that you can get a full understanding of the Howdy. So this narration, the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said Len yunju I had to mean come, be Amelie, none amongst you will attain salvation will be saved. Right? Due to his deeds. B I'm an E or an E err we can say due to his deed I have to put a loan Carlos rasulillah what they said a last message and not even you.

00:48:52--> 00:49:07

He replied, not even I Annie Waller Ella Madden 11 in Ming Hua and less Allah wraps me in his mercy and grace. Right. So

00:49:08--> 00:49:12

the actions themselves are not the

00:49:14--> 00:49:32

the factor Okay, the main factor for salvation it is a loss, grace and His mercy. And in another narration cyclable hardy ln unit Jia, I had in min Kumamoto, who, okay, the deeds of any one of you will not see

00:49:33--> 00:49:43

your deeds will not save you. Okay. They won't allow you to attain salvation. Now. How do we understand that?

00:49:44--> 00:49:55

In light of many places in the Quran, right. One of the I was here last time was Alice's livina. To what fell on my lap needed to play he been

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

Latina Latina totowa for Herman Miller. You

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

What's up venia coluna set them when they come to Hulu janetta be macoun TomTom alone. The last part is here, enter paradise for what you used to do. Danny, as a result of

00:50:17--> 00:50:21

what you used to do the good deeds that you used to do, how do you understand that? Yeah.

00:50:26--> 00:50:36

Right. So, so the bat beam at some time alone is what they call bad suburbia. And that's why it's important also, and when you

00:50:37--> 00:51:27

as you study the Arabic language to get familiar with the different meanings of the prepositions or the hotel food job, okay, because they, they mean different things in different contexts. So here B Mac, quantum Terminal B, seven B, medical term terminal. In other words, your good deeds are a means they are a cause they are a means for you entering paradise, right? But that's not the main factor. It doesn't entitle you, okay? They don't compensate for paradise. That's only from a loss. Pantheon is grace and mercy. Again, I will humbly lead I think that everything that came said up until this point prepares us for understanding of God, so we can understand that. Uh huh. Okay, so we're not

00:51:27--> 00:51:37

entitled to it. Though actions are important, they are important measure and they help you know, a person gained different ranks and paradise right.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

Now,

00:51:44--> 00:51:45

as math

00:51:47--> 00:52:38

related, on the day of judgment, there will be three accounts for each person, one of which includes the records of his good deeds, and one of which is for his bad deeds, and the last of which is for the bounty and grace that the law conferred upon His servants. The Lord will be He will say to these graces and bounties, take your due rights from the good deeds of my slaves, upon which the least and smallest grace starts to take its right until no more good deeds are left in his account. Then it says, Oh, my Lord, I have not yet taken enough good deeds to fulfill my right at that point, if a law wanted to show his mercy to a slave, if he wants to show his mercy to a slave, he will grant him

00:52:38--> 00:52:49

all his graces and bounties, and forgive his sins, and double his good deeds. This report came home. This report is authentic and verified to be narrated by

00:52:52--> 00:53:04

the author Rahim Allah tada says that this report is authentic and verified to be narrated by Anna's romantic comedy along with China. And now, a few things on that

00:53:06--> 00:53:15

innocent romantic while they allow time, and it was a companion, and there's no way that he can talk about what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment unless he

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

unless he heard that from the Prophet is allowed to say in other words,

00:53:21--> 00:53:48

even if he's the one saying, there's no way that he's saying this, without having gotten that information from the Prophet saliva samples, you can't talk about what's going to happen in here after without revelation, right. So this would be what they call level hokum are referred meaning. It takes the ruling as if it was said by the prophet it is allowed to say, however, even though the author says that it's authentic.

00:53:50--> 00:53:54

The it is narrated by bizarre.

00:53:55--> 00:53:56

And as Muslim said,

00:53:58--> 00:54:04

to the Prophet sallahu wa sallam himself not to NSF, was bife, very bife,

00:54:05--> 00:54:09

meaning even a lot of but I searched for other

00:54:10--> 00:54:25

narrations to try to see if there was a where it will claim was saying that it was authentic I was trying to look for but I did not find that. And I also looked at check the books that mentioned it in Arabic, and they all said the same thing.

00:54:26--> 00:54:50

And even some of them that did the explanation. They said that they didn't find it either. So it's possible that it will kind of came across this narration somewhere else in a book that maybe we don't have still have today. That's possible. But as far as we know, like the information that we had last fantana knows best. This narration is not authentically reported on Ennis or the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Senate.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

Now, it is clear evidence of the perfect knowledge of big pains about their Lord and he's responded needless to add

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

They also have the most knowledge about the

00:55:05--> 00:55:07

religion. Yeah. So Pamela

00:55:09--> 00:55:20

you know, I mean this this could be its own class, but just understanding the knowledge of the companions of the Prophet It is so like to listen and the knowledge about a law.

00:55:21--> 00:55:32

Needless to say, as he says, Here, they were the most knowledgeable about the prophet Isaiah sighs was there I mean, that's pretty obvious. And the most knowledgeable about the, his son and the D.

00:55:34--> 00:55:48

And then they're being knowledgeable. The most knowledgeable about Allah, about his messenger and about the deen means that these people were the best people. Because they are going to pass that test.

00:55:49--> 00:55:55

Everybody is tested my blog book, or Medina, Medina, bu,

00:55:58--> 00:56:07

they're going to pass that test because they were the most knowledgeable of that, and they were the best to implement that knowledge. Right? And

00:56:09--> 00:56:38

this, this houseware perspective, what are you using your time for? or using your time to learn more about a lot to learn more about the messenger velocity? So Lance was saying, to learn more about the dean? Is that what you're using your time for? Because ultimately, that's what's important. And that's what's going to mean something. When a person is questioned in a gray, the anatomy question about sports teams, and they're not going to be questions about musicians and actors and movies and

00:56:39--> 00:56:46

everything else that people Yanis panela some people they have immense, not immense information, I call it knowledge.

00:56:47--> 00:57:00

You know, it can tell you everything about who played on what Team 30 years ago, I mean, just really weird I, what they call fun facts and all this type of stuff. But about the deen of Allah is

00:57:03--> 00:57:03

nothing.

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

So it's like,

00:57:07--> 00:57:21

there's a lot of information, you know, somehow you can go We live in a university city, even though sometimes I feel like because it's big. But I mean, we've got big universities around Temple University, and University of Penn and Drexel, Villanova, and so forth.

00:57:22--> 00:57:31

You can go there, and you can go find yourself a person who already past the age of retirement. Okay, they already passed the age return

00:57:33--> 00:57:46

in their 70s, and for the last 40 years, all they've been studying is a particular type of worm, not worms, but a particular type is an expert in his field. And he's panela. And

00:57:47--> 00:58:11

I don't want to sound like I'm, I mean, some of this stuff actually has a benefit, right? Like, there really is like, there's a benefit to humanity in the sense that, you know, they're studying nerve endings on worms, so they can figure out how to do pain management for human beings. Okay, type, and it is a benefit. But But can you imagine spending 40 years your life, then only to die?

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

And to be asked model a book and you can't answer.

00:58:16--> 00:58:17

So panela

00:58:20--> 00:58:34

I mean, the point here is the companions of the disability claim is highlighting the knowledge of the companions, or the alone time a woman can have been left out of, can I mean, who?

00:58:35--> 00:58:40

Whoever is more knowledgeable, will last for hands on way more fear of a loss of hands.

00:58:41--> 00:58:44

What can Allah Who can I call him

00:58:46--> 00:58:50

and he is going to seek him out more you're going to seek a loss of hands on him or asking him

00:58:53--> 00:59:14

but the point is that the these are the campaigns of the messenger it is how it was sent in, hopefully, and at some point in the future. We can do several classes just on where the campaign is and their virtues and understanding. And the dean, in light of their understanding, what does that really mean?

00:59:17--> 00:59:42

This report includes a knowledge and cognition that no one can comprehend except those who have insightful hearts and know their Lord, his attributes, names and rights upon the slaves by knowing that we can understand the hugging recorded by email in an area by saving time before we get before we get to the understanding next, can you just read this real quick? Why does the author

00:59:43--> 01:00:00

Why did the author mentioned the Heidi of Anna's video and here Yeah, before we get started last, why is he mentioned this method. So even though this method in terms of what we know and I lost friends, animals, but is not authentic, he we still

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

Need to Know Why did he mentioned it? Right? Why did he mentioned it? And so go ahead and number one, Arabic D well, mo caymus further argue, no, it

01:00:10--> 01:00:51

is further Ivan is playing that one, our good deeds are not enough to save us. Number two, we should recognize our shortcomings. No matter how good we are in our own eyes. Number three, whatever good we've done, does not begin to match the favors the law has given. So he wants to argue this point which is clear, whatever good we've done, it doesn't begin to match the favors that are lost fans, Allah has given us now whether this narration is authentic or not, which is which he's saying that Allah Subhana Allah will say to the smallest of the favors that he's given to us that go take your rights

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

from my slave, okay. Don't take your rights I gave you I gave you as a favor to my sleeve. Take your rights from from my sleeve.

01:01:05--> 01:01:07

They'll begin that smallest favor.

01:01:10--> 01:01:14

Okay, so means this. I mean, just to put perspective on

01:01:15--> 01:01:23

a favorite of the last pants Allah has given us is the sense of taste. Right? You know, that favor?

01:01:24--> 01:01:33

When you get sick, and you can't taste anything? Right? You can't if you don't enjoy your food, you don't enjoy anything. Right? So that's a favor from a loss. Right?

01:01:34--> 01:01:40

Now, a loss fantastic. This is what he's saying here. I mean, according to this, Allah Subhana, Allah will say, to the sense of taste,

01:01:42--> 01:02:11

take take the rights back from my sleeve. In other words, this was it this favor, favors comm need to be compensated, right? If I do something for you, then you compensate that. Okay, so you go shovel your neighbor's snow. I mean, I'm not saying that we should I mean, the not that we should seek compensation for everything, but I'm saying when somebody does something good, when somebody does a favor, that should be compensated, okay.

01:02:13--> 01:02:21

So the taste comes to be compensated for that favor. So it starts taking the good deeds from you.

01:02:22--> 01:02:36

Because it tasted because you taste it because you saw a site comes and we'll start taking those good beats. That's that's what it's saying. So that's what this effort says, Take your do rights from the good deeds of my slave.

01:02:38--> 01:02:53

Right upon which the least smallest favorite starts to take its right until no more good deeds are left in his account. The good deeds are being taken. Right? Right. He's taking your good deeds according to the favor.

01:02:54--> 01:02:57

And all your good deeds are going based on one favor.

01:02:58--> 01:03:35

See, so that now again, this so we don't have any we can't affirm that. But we can affirm that the broad principle here which is that you're striving does not match a loss favors fine. That's that's the point that I was trying to make. Then he goes on to say from this by knowing that we can understand the Hadith, okay, recorded by the Imam Ahmed and stuff, and Abu Dhabi, narrated by zeta min seven and who they are, while the Alo China and home. If a law were to punish.

01:03:36--> 01:04:04

punish the dwellers, yeah, if a law punish the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, He will not, he would not be unjust to them. And if he showed mercy to them, His mercy would be better for them in their good deeds. Right. So again, if a law were to punish the inhabitants of the heavens and earth, he was certainly punished them without this entailing any injustice on his part. If He punished everybody,

01:04:05--> 01:04:22

he would not be unjust in doing so. And if he was to show them mercy and His mercy would be better for them than their own actions. This highlights the point that we talked about before. Go back, I want you to look back at the bottom of page 56.

01:04:23--> 01:04:48

It says it is for this reason, see the last paragraph that we are more in need of his forgiveness due to our inadequate worship and obedience, then we are in need of asking his reward for the worship and obedience we have performed. His mercy is better than our actions. We need his mercy more than we need the reward for our actions. What should this hobby make us recognize further?

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

What Sure. Okay, what should this Heidi make us recognize our hope and a loss bearsy must be greater than the hope we have in our own good deeds.

01:05:00--> 01:05:28

The good deeds that we've done do not even compare to laws faders or pilots, and would be reduced to nothing. If we had to compensate for a loss failure, you understand that right there? If we had, so we've done all these good deeds we think we had, okay, now we have to use those deeds, that's because the, the commodity of the Hereafter is deeds, right, there was no dollars and cents. So that Okay, so now you got to start paying a lot of back

01:05:29--> 01:05:40

for the favors that he's done. So, if if we had to compensate for a loss favors are good, these will be reduced to nothing.

01:05:41--> 01:06:08

God time, hence, hence, a law owes us nothing. At the same time, we have not fulfilled his rights over us, which means that if he were to punish anyone, he will be justified in doing so. His mercy saved a person from the fire, whereas one's actions are not enough for salvation. Hence, laws Mercy is better than one's actions.

01:06:10--> 01:06:19

With that, we have made it to the last page. Okay, page 59. Everything after page 59 is

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

the first appendix I think there's two or three.

01:06:23--> 01:06:36

So this is the last page Alhamdulilah of this risala, which is without a doubt, and it's tremendous. And if you read this, say every three, four months, it would not be a lot.

01:06:37--> 01:07:12

You know, go back for exact, you know, make yourself a schedule, just put this on a schedule of things. I mean, you can, the great thing is panela once you read it, this kind of read, okay, you go back and read it again, you don't have to take as much time, right? Just you can go back and basically like refresh your memory shala. But this this restyle is tremendous man, I feel like a lot pans out a truly blessed this man gave us tofu. And when I say us, I'm not talking about me, I'm not using a royal we're saying all of us. And this was a blessing to be able to

01:07:14--> 01:07:15

go through this book now.

01:07:18--> 01:07:25

For the Bismillah the four pillars in order to grasp all the aspects of these

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

four things.

01:07:27--> 01:07:28

Okay.

01:07:31--> 01:07:42

I don't know what that means. I'm not trying to be funny. In order to grasp all the aspects of this state of being, what is this state of being shuksan

01:07:47--> 01:07:50

realize that no matter what your needs are,

01:07:51--> 01:07:59

that in itself isn't enough to get you order to grasp all the aspects of this state.

01:08:00--> 01:08:01

It what was you saying? She

01:08:03--> 01:08:13

Cora Tang, and you call me lac who had the schatten. That's That's what it says. What I got from it and the last pants on and those best

01:08:15--> 01:08:36

is that he's refer when he says hair, the shetan that he's talking about everything that he was talking to his friend about from the beginning, specifically, issues related to the dean. And he meant because if you look at what he's talking about here, he says four things. And you need four things.

01:08:37--> 01:09:04

And he says his sincere intention, overwhelming capacity. I don't know. He says koolatron the idea I have here profound strength, because you'll see that that's what he's actually talking about. Allah knows best. He says desire rug but and fear Rob or hope and fear, right? I kind of was I was understanding that he was talking about the the dean and its entirety, but maybe he's talking about

01:09:06--> 01:09:35

he's talking about making the salaat quotable time. It could be but but then it would have been, it would have been repetitive because when he's talking about sincere intention, that's part of the corporate Tang when he's talking about koolatron idea, which is that profound strength that goes back to what he mentioned earlier, or when he was talking about that willpower, right. So I don't know. But in a way he says to grasp all the aspects.

01:09:36--> 01:09:40

Could be imama for D. We had a schatten. Yeah, perhaps.

01:09:46--> 01:09:48

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, you get what?

01:09:50--> 01:09:58

I think he's referring to more like one thing. When he says had the shed, so perhaps is mmm and the Dean olana

01:09:59--> 01:10:00

will make

01:10:00--> 01:10:11

Through this and then we're talking now, further, he says, You got these four points stand out as the basis of the state and any deficit, any deficit.

01:10:12--> 01:10:32

You see, that's why I was thinking maybe he was talking about Amen. Right, these four points, he says stand out as the basis of this state. Okay, let's just say, stand out as the basis of email. And any deficit in one's email, or while

01:10:33--> 01:10:44

the hero will bertina. Right, is due to shortcomings found an either or all of these four pillars.

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

Tie

01:10:48--> 01:10:54

In any event, which you'll see in shallotte. Is that these four?

01:10:55--> 01:11:13

If we focus on meeting the law, it will make the entirety of your deen be right be in the law. So we'll just go through some of these. Some of these points correct intention which we've talked about, to some extent.

01:11:15--> 01:11:20

I think just to hammer the point home shallow Tada.

01:11:23--> 01:11:31

Yeah, I'm gonna hear were mentioned something that Immanuel Kant said before that, the prophet is allowed to sit and said, may You send me

01:11:32--> 01:12:12

you send me a low B, woman, Euro II, Euro in level B. Okay, so whoever talks about his good deeds, because he's seeking to get a good reputation, he wants people to know about us, that's called min Sandman or you send me an E In other words, he talks so to be heard, right, he wants other people to hear about his good deeds, then a law will expose him on your own the Day of Judgment. And whoever makes a hypocritical display, you will draw he he's trying to show off

01:12:13--> 01:12:17

you are Allahu Allah Subhana Allah will make a display of him.

01:12:19--> 01:12:25

Over Kima and this is collected by bohart a Muslim. So when we,

01:12:26--> 01:12:38

when we are talking about the correct intention, the correct intention is always the pure intention. And it's purely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:12:39--> 01:12:57

There are some things that we need to look at. And I mean, some things that are practical, and this one from pivotal came and I am just mentioning him because this is his book I'm taking from another book, but it's still his work so that we can look at just one thing that he said about his last read what he said she

01:12:59--> 01:13:22

said, when a person reaches a high level of devotion to his Lord, and becomes steadfast in that, he will rise above being concerned with people's praise and criticism. Okay, so, in order to get to a class, you have to get beyond what people think about you. You have to

01:13:24--> 01:13:28

you have to get beyond external validation.

01:13:30--> 01:13:36

All right, a class requires that you don't care.

01:13:38--> 01:13:40

It really does. Okay, now.

01:13:42--> 01:14:02

Go ahead. He will not rejoice when people praise Him, or be sad when they criticize them. And he even handler you look at the Hadith Some people use they want to come and explain themselves about certain things in the hassle for you, you know, to prophesize on when he was walking, he said that, that this is Sofia, the province I sort of did that for him or for them.

01:14:03--> 01:14:22

He did that for them. He went to them. So because he didn't want them to have evil thoughts about him and they be punished by Allah subhanho wa Taala for the evil thought he didn't do it because he cared in that sense, right? Even the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam.

01:14:23--> 01:14:28

When one of the monastic team deserved to be punished

01:14:29--> 01:14:59

and armado the loads on and who said Daniela, sort of lovely, we're honored to have him on Africa. Let me just hit his neck, the lay of the head, the NES and the Mohammedan young soloists have, Let it not be said that Mohammed kills his campaigns. Now this man wasn't actually contained to the Prophet, it is like to say from the outside looking in. He looked like what one of them is important for us to realize too, but that's a different story. From the outside looking in. He looked like a campaign. So the prophet Elijah was sent him said

01:15:00--> 01:15:17

Why don't we don't want the people saying that Mohammed kill not because he cares about them being his judge, but because he doesn't want that to be a barrier and obstacle between them and then becoming Muslim and attaining salvation.

01:15:19--> 01:15:39

So a lot of people they want to talk about, they want to free themselves for the sake of freeing themselves, whatever they want to, you know, they want to come out and they want to discuss something so that they look good, for the sake of them looking good, not for what is going to be more beneficial for wasteland.

01:15:40--> 01:16:03

No, he will not rejoice. He will not rejoice when people praise Him, or be sad when they criticize him. This is the description of one who is not swayed by his whims, nor desires, and has attained true servitude to his Lord, and who is what has tasted the sweetness of faith and yet in Allah

01:16:05--> 01:16:27

subhanaw taala so this is this is that when a person strives for a class, the one that they are aiming to please is a loss of Hannah who wattana alone purely that what they do is for a lot analyze what Joe says and other than that, I should okay and should when I'm when I'm in an ash locker fi Mario ladies are up to who we should go so ever does an action

01:16:28--> 01:16:31

for Allah and for other than Allah.

01:16:33--> 01:16:45

Allah Subhana Allah says, talk to her, or she'll go leave him and his his shirt. And he, and again, I mean, this is the point. It's not that it's me, some people think, well, it's

01:16:46--> 01:16:52

this shirt is when a person does something for other than Allah know, it's when you do it for Allah, and somebody else.

01:16:53--> 01:17:09

And that's exactly what shirt means. But I'm saying that some people think it means to, it only means to worship an idol or to do this or to know you can be worshiping Allah. But if you're not worshiping Allah alone, then it should

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

clear

01:17:12--> 01:17:14

alarm anyhow, then we can actually get

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

tight.

01:17:19--> 01:17:43

So as it relates to now this as it relates to the class when it comes to strength. Okay, cool Woodson, Alya, who would tune it right? So it says here, if you look at the top it says a sincere intention and overwhelming capacity. I would I would just write their profound or intense strength.

01:17:45--> 01:17:46

At the top paragraph,

01:17:47--> 01:17:59

where it says an overwhelming capacity, I would, I would take that out I would say a profound profound strength or intention, right. And this is what I am is referring to here is the strength of the heart.

01:18:00--> 01:18:21

Because the body doesn't matter. And I'm gonna I'm going to give you an example exam. Well, what I mean what doesn't matter is this week let's talk about Salah. Right? Have you not come to the masjid and you see somebody insulite 8590 years old, frail as they come bones and decrepit. No, barely can walk.

01:18:22--> 01:18:24

But he gets himself to the masjid

01:18:25--> 01:18:27

seen a tie.

01:18:28--> 01:18:35

And somebody you know, strong as they can be. They go to the gym every day. They don't come to the masjid

01:18:37--> 01:18:39

Was it the body that got him to the mansion? It was his heart?

01:18:42--> 01:18:46

Was the willpower was that will to be at domestic?

01:18:47--> 01:19:07

That will I mean some handler. See here, you don't see it as much because most people don't just walk to the mesti when you you've lived overseas and you you walk into the mansion and you see man's panel Are you trying to figure out this guy, so panela it must take him a half hour to get to the masjid and even right there.

01:19:09--> 01:19:40

But because he was so slow, and he's got to walk down steps he lives in an apartment building no elevator was down. Instead he walks back up the steps after every select panel Ah, this is hard to string that's cool one, that strength was the strength of the heart. Profit is a lie to me no kawi hyaluron will help with aluminum in a bifocal, insane and in the strong believer strong and what? Before anything strong, strong in his Amen.

01:19:41--> 01:19:59

A Min alcovy first thing is cool with an Amen strong in his amen is better and more beloved to Allah then then the weak believer and then both of them is is good. And that does I mean we can talk about strength of the body and but the point is, what he's talking about here is with that

01:20:00--> 01:20:09

purity of intention that it needs to also be coupled with strength and your heart that strong willpower.

01:20:10--> 01:20:21

So, then he goes on to say that both of those needs to be coupled with desire and fear hmm okay.

01:20:23--> 01:20:31

He says these four points stand out as the basis they are the core of a man really.

01:20:32--> 01:20:44

He says Therefore, a sensible person must reflect on these four pillars and ensure and complying with them abiding by these four rules and to make them the guideline for his knowledge deeds, words and conditions in life.

01:20:46--> 01:20:57

Okay, why? Because let's, let's take back and let's draw out our previous knowledge here from from this from our book, right.

01:20:59--> 01:21:11

The Deen is based on two things. In fact, the entirety of the deen is these two things What are they? When we say Dino Serato Mr. Team, what is the Serato Mr. Kane

01:21:14--> 01:21:37

Mr. naffaa beneficial knowledge and and righteous actions to you call us do so. In your it is the beneficial knowledge is required to have righteous actions. And in those righteous actions. You need sincerity. Okay, because sincerity

01:21:38--> 01:21:43

is what makes it purely for last pantallas was one of the conditions for it to be accepted.

01:21:44--> 01:21:48

And in order to implement that sincerity. All right.

01:21:49--> 01:21:58

In order to bring that motivation to a reality, you need strong willpower. You need Coover tonight. Uh huh.

01:22:00--> 01:22:01

And when you do that deed,

01:22:02--> 01:22:05

you need to be between two states.

01:22:07--> 01:22:09

Fearing that Allah subhana wa tada

01:22:11--> 01:22:14

may not accept it because of the shortcomings in it,

01:22:15--> 01:22:16

hoping

01:22:17--> 01:22:19

for a loss of Hamlet's Allah His mercy,

01:22:20--> 01:22:47

and that he will overlook those shortcomings. So everything that you do, everything that you do, and everything that you say, needs each one of those four things. It's why we worship along with fear and hope and it is that love that pushes us to do those actions sincerely for lost parents. And if you also recall what we talked earlier, what is it that keeps you away from displeasing Allah?

01:22:56--> 01:22:58

farrakhan was he was before that.

01:23:00--> 01:23:04

And intense love. Hmm, and what?

01:23:05--> 01:23:14

And discomforting fear, right? So it's the intense love that drives the action in the first place. And then you need to be between what

01:23:15--> 01:23:23

fear and hope. And that's what he just said here. That's what he just said. rebuttal claim says I'm a damage from the former right to

01:23:25--> 01:23:46

the heart on its journey towards a law the Exalted is like that of a bird. Love is its head and beard who bites wings, when the head and wings are sound, the bird flies properly, but if the head is seven, if it's cut off, the bird will die. So in other words, if there is no love driving

01:23:47--> 01:23:52

as the driving force, then it won't it won't come into existence in the first place.

01:23:54--> 01:24:01

And if the bird loses its wings, the fear net Hope it becomes vulnerable to every actor and predator.

01:24:02--> 01:24:07

Yeah, and one of the best ways to achieve

01:24:08--> 01:24:19

love and fear of Allah subhana wa tada is knowing his names and his attributes and maybe I'm gonna have to answer the call of Mohammed

01:24:20--> 01:25:00

happy the hola to continue or maybe even change up the way we did the classes on the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. But it's very important. So we look at these two the these at here, a Los Angeles has never been a baddie and neat and a little folder right time from that, and for my slaves, that I am eligible for a ye right, which which should the offer giving the merciful What should we get from that? We should get hope. What ni there be who eligible le and that my punishment is a is a painful punishment. What should we get from

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

Fear

01:25:02--> 01:25:40

both, between what love and fear, right? allies are jealous is a animal and the law has shady dog a car know that a law is severe and punishment when the laws are for right, and the law is for him. So both fear and hope, right? The heart on its journey towards a loss like that of a bird. Love is its head and fear and hope are its wings, I mean, just keep that in mind all the time, always be between that fear and that hope. Now, it can be said that

01:25:41--> 01:25:44

last sentence in the second paragraph, but it can be said that

01:25:46--> 01:26:01

it can be it can be said that those who have developed the state could not do so without these four pillars and those who failed did so only because they have not complied with them.

01:26:03--> 01:26:47

And the law is best upon him relying depend and this is pressure that we see a lot and it's him who can help us and all I've read them from the people assume that in complying with these four pillars in terms of knowledge and action. Indeed, he is the one capable of that and it is him alone suffice us in everything. Now and with that, the we conclude this reseller We ask Allah subhana wa tada to reward the man even okay am Rahim Allah, Allah tada with a great reward and to give him the best and the hereafter and to raise him with the prophets and the martyrs and the Sati hain and this you know, Subhana Allah.

01:26:50--> 01:26:54

Honestly, I mean, even though claim is amazing, the way he

01:26:56--> 01:26:58

I mentioned it in the first lesson,

01:26:59--> 01:27:08

that some of the scholars consider him to be the most underrated scholar period, because he lived in the shadow of shakiness named Tamia. Kamala, right.

01:27:09--> 01:27:17

But he was amazing in his own right. And he benefited tremendously from the works of shackled Islam and made them

01:27:19--> 01:28:01

more intentional, if you will shake with snam or him a whole lot wrote very quickly, he wrote, in response, almost everything that he wrote was in response to something, right, it was there was a need for him to write an image, okay, and they say came and he categorized the the knowledge of shapeless entertainment. And so we get so much benefit from that. And I do want to teach another one of his books, but again, you know, we ask a lot of hands on, I'd have mercy on him to forgive him for his shortcomings and to raise his ranks in Paradise, and that this book was tremendous. And I hope that we get another opportunity, even if we just do something that I would like to start here

01:28:01--> 01:28:08

at the masjid, which is guided reading. In other words, instead of,

01:28:10--> 01:28:30

you know, taking, for example, a book like this, and we take 10 weeks to go through it. And we would do it in three, for example, we just read it together very short, Tally cut, you know, just notes, instead of a deeper a deep explanation. So some books, like some of his books, or him a lot of have been translated into English, and I don't want to

01:28:31--> 01:28:56

take so much time that we can't get through them, they're so beneficial that just getting through the original text together, right, and just checking it with the Arabic to make sure that it lines up and everything, just getting through it would be super beneficial. And then just put some notes on top of that to help elucidate and clarify, you know, some of the meanings in Charlottetown. So that's something I'm looking forward to do in the near future be in the lions animals likely next month. shala.

01:28:58--> 01:29:04

But that That being said, we I'm already a half hour over time, so I don't want to go

01:29:05--> 01:29:06

you know too much into

01:29:08--> 01:29:15

reviewing this book, the comprehensive overview, but I do just very briefly for just two minutes, if we can just discuss

01:29:17--> 01:29:33

the sequence of this book so that we can put it all together all right, where did this book start? What the event Okay, um, say at the very beginning of this book, does anybody remember I just want you to kind of just recall what how we got to where we got what everyone kind of said at the beginning.

01:29:34--> 01:29:59

Before you remember, he may do it for his friend and he made it do it for his friend that alarm make him Mubarak. Okay. And then he started explaining to his friend What does it mean to be robotic because if you make them do offer some something they you should be striving to make that a reality better than less bad. right for you.

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

In a dire reality

01:30:02--> 01:30:11

and so he went from there and what did he say was being robotic? What was the, the main two qualities of being robotic?

01:30:16--> 01:30:47

Yeah, well no, that was his teaching beneficial knowledge wherever you are. Okay. With john any water, okay. So teaching beneficial knowledge wherever you are, and advising those with whom you congregate. Okay. He went from there talking about congregating and making your jealous set your congregations making them blessed to saying to talking about the opposite. And so the root of all evil

01:30:48--> 01:31:05

is wasting time and a corrupt heart, which directly relate to your gatherings because most of the time people are gonna waste their time where at gatherings that are not beneficial. And through wasting that time the heart is is corrupted.

01:31:06--> 01:31:09

Okay, so he goes from there.

01:31:10--> 01:31:19

And he building off of the concept of a Baraka, he starts to talk about guidance. Okay.

01:31:21--> 01:31:37

And he says, In that regard, well, there were a few things I'm probably skipping over. But he says in that regard, that guidance is actually what we need guidance from Allah subhanaw taala in 10 different areas. Okay.

01:31:38--> 01:31:45

And this is why we have to ask for a loss guidance in every salon.

01:31:47--> 01:31:55

And the last of the things that he mentioned from the 10 of guidance was what isn't

01:31:56--> 01:31:57

guiding others.

01:31:58--> 01:32:06

Right, that part of part of you being guided? Because when you say Dino said almost Okay, are you asking for

01:32:08--> 01:32:29

even you're asking for the Asolo guidance to be guided to the path and to be guided on the path and to have an increase in guidance. One of the ways that you are increasing your guidance is to guide others. And that's because and Jesu Min Jin Salaam, and that allows your hands on to reward you from the same.

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

How do we translate that?

01:32:35--> 01:33:05

Yeah, okay, from the same type of the action is done. So like last time, like the prophet SAW you some said will often don't allow the mechanic if he only a few data loss is continued to help his servant as long as a servant is helping someone else. Right. So as long as you are guiding someone else, then Allah will guide you. Mind you, this is one of the few places you'll see that is dingbat. That extraction and deduction from from ofsc. Uh huh. So, the liberal claim says, Well,

01:33:06--> 01:33:15

if that's the case, and that's the doodad that we make, right? We're actually asking the law to make us wrongs the people who guide others. Right.

01:33:17--> 01:33:36

And that means that you should be asking the Lord to become what? Any man in the deen. Okay. And another proof that he mentions for that is the death of a bad man, the service of Iraq man, it comes at the end of sorts of time, when he says

01:33:37--> 01:33:46

Sakina mmm make us any man for the motorcade. And so he goes, and he explains that a little bit. Well, if I'm asking the Lord to make many Ma'am,

01:33:47--> 01:34:01

right, the now needs to know what what are the qualities of any man? So in order to explain to us with the qualities of any mammal, we go right back to the Quran, right. So what sajida

01:34:02--> 01:34:03

and what's the I

01:34:07--> 01:34:08

know what?

01:34:10--> 01:34:26

Right? What do you mean home? imitation? Yeah, Duna b m Nina Lam? sobre la can be Idina yukino. And so he extracted four qualities of e mams. From there, right, which was what

01:34:28--> 01:35:00

sobor and your key and we talked about the three types of support and we talked about what your team means, especially as it relates to the cannabis plant. I mean, the academy man and giving dour, giving dour you can't be a man, right. Yeah, dude, number one, so they are guiding others be empty net. According to the way that the Prophet it is Salatu was sent in, gave that down, right. He then moves on to talk about Okay, that being

01:35:00--> 01:35:18

The case, everybody is seeking to be guided To what? To being happy. We want to be happy. You want to teach people how to be happy, right? That's one of the things you want to guide them to success. Right? Well, how do you get there? He says there's six things. Who remembers

01:35:20--> 01:35:22

knowing what is good? Uh huh.

01:35:23--> 01:36:00

Knowing the path that leads to that, and embarking upon that path, and knowing what is harmful, knowing the path that leads to that is harmful and avoiding that path, right. And then the thing that will make you the happiest in this life, and the thing that was the joy of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam was the Salah. And we talked about those six machines. So you see how the book kind of ties together? It really is amazing to be honest with you, because if you picked it up and you kind of didn't go through it like that, it may feel a lot more disjointed than it than it actually is.

01:36:01--> 01:36:28

So with that, we conclude well hamdulillah and ledi binaire muttahida. Tim Masada hand, all praises for a loss of habitat, through whom and by whom all good deeds are concluded and come to a or are completed. And this truly was a nightmare from a loss of habitat for which he deserves thanks. Will low items of Hana economic handicap shadow underline and stockbroker to remake
