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

I'm going to try to make this a content I'm not a lecture

00:00:04--> 00:00:06

and inshallah

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

hopefully you'll walk away not just with inspiration but with something that you can implement in the lights and in your lives.

00:00:15--> 00:00:21

Before I begin just by a show of hands, how many of you have heard of celestial istikhara?

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

Okay, how many of you know how many of you have memorize selected list ikara Okay, that's a significant drop.

00:00:30--> 00:00:47

I want us to notice something at the very beginning of that had eaten this is not about selectively staccato but it's about the beginning here with Jabba didn't have to learn about the Allahu taala and whom he says, we use them you I leave when is the hora comma you I live in a surah

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

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would teach us the istikhara the way they would teach us from the time in other words, memorize the words.

00:01:02--> 00:01:10

And what's added is also important, not just what you ask for, not just that we say it's from our hearts, which is very important.

00:01:11--> 00:01:19

But that you do your best to call upon a loss of hand with added the way that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam called upon him

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

like a ministry of cough here in American Islamic education

00:01:27--> 00:01:47

would be a hell of every message to teach the Dr. The prophet Isaiah Salatu was sent in I think it's so important that we the regular Muslims that we begin to implement those edits via the eyes of the prophet Isaiah select to send them in our lives. And so either the prophecy

00:01:48--> 00:02:28

of campaigns or he would teach the campaigns do I from those from those two ads that the prophets I send them with teachers campaigns is that do I it's quite long we're only going to focus on the beginning part should that have been oh so the Allahu tada and we said cannon abuse a lot. There was some you alumina and Nicole the prophets I send them used to teach us to say, and in some narrations, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to say this in every salon, Aloma in ESL oka sabetta. Phenomenal azima tala rushed to the end of the Hadith is quite long. I want to focus on those two questions from the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sent in with those two requests. So a loss of

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

habitat allama in ESL Luca.

00:02:32--> 00:03:06

Oh Allah I ask you for the bats being steadfast on your de fille amor here is referring to Islam. So give me the bat on Islam make me steadfast in my practice of Islam. And I think this is an important point for us because every one is subject to fitna till everybody is subject to be asked and agree. And then the grave were asked what I'm asking you, Malibu. Okay?

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

You gotta help me out here. What does that mean Malibu?

00:03:11--> 00:03:24

Who is your Lord? But is it mean? In this sense? Are you being asked? Who do you believe created the heavens and earth only? Or are you actually being asked? Who you worship?

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

Who is your Lord here? A book actually asking you Who? You worshipped? Medina.

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

What's that mean?

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

What is your religion?

00:03:37--> 00:04:19

Careful. A lot of times we oversimplify this stuff. It's not asking you what religion you think is the truth? Or is your name and last name or a DC last name? And then you say that you're a Muslim is asking you. What did you practice? So, Medina, venial Islam, my religion is Islam. That means you have to practice something from the dead. It's not just enough to walk around with a cart. It says that I'm a Muslim woman to be you. And who did you take? As your Prophet, the one whom you followed his instructions? I think it's a lot to say. So the point here is when we're asking the Lord for Tibet, we're asking him to give us steadfastness on this Deen, we're going to be asked about our

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

steadfastness. Did we really practice this Deen or not? And so we want to be steadfast. The second part of this, what we're focusing on is Alemany Assetto, Corsa basophil, Mo Wallasey metallic brushed, and we asked you, I asked you to give me a firm resolve firm determination to be rightly guided, have brushed on a stop at this word. This is gonna be the end of what we talked about today. But I'm going to explain it the way that Allah subhanaw taala explained it in the Quran. Because another thing that's important is not just that we learned the words of God

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

For example, you're going around the Kaaba, between the Yemeni corner and the black stone we say

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

and it never dunia has no flash. It has an Okinawa but not

00:05:12--> 00:05:36

all I'll give us the good of this life, the good of the next night save us from the punishment of the Fire. But do we really understand the implications of what we're asking for? A lot of times we don't, until we give it some thought. And so we're asking a lot here to be steadfast upon his Deen and we're asking him for firm resolve and determination to be rightly guided for rushed. But what does rushed me?

00:05:38--> 00:06:11

Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah eco whom are washy, do they are the rightly guided? They are the ones who have rushed? Who? Who was a last minute Dalits where does that idea come? I'm even asking some of the I know some of you who follow my show La La eco Houma, Rashida. They are the right we got it. And by the way, one of the things we've had a look at one of the first lessons that we took when I was many moons ago, when I started my Master's in Medina.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

Our teacher actually used to make us bring in the book

00:06:17--> 00:06:45

and read and stop at every pronoun. And say, what does that pronoun refer back to? Because you're not going to understand language? If you don't know who the Who's he Who's she who's it, who's de la eco Mirage, Ito, they are the right the guy who was the last minutes out of talking about Allah says at the beginning of that Iowa animal and the fecal Rasulullah know that amongst you all is the messenger of a low,

00:06:47--> 00:07:11

low you to compete compete in minimal MBD that I need to if he were to obey your wishes and many things, you would actually suffer. So he's not coming to obey your wishes. He's coming to bring the rissalah to bring the message of Allah subhanaw taala if he did what you are wanting to do, then you would actually suffer from them. And then Allah Subhana tada says lack in the la hubub la como email

00:07:12--> 00:07:36

was a yena houfy kulu become but a la mi Eman beloved to you. He endeared Eman to you was a Yena who feed Hulu because it made it pleasing to your hearts. So not only do you love a man, but you're pleased with the man. And that's two different things. You might love somebody and not be pleased with them. You may love something and not particularly like it.

00:07:37--> 00:08:20

But Eliza Jones made a man beloved to them. And he man here is not just talking about something in the heart. It's talking about your faith. It's talking about your statements. It's talking about the actions of Islam, they become beloved to you. And we can ask ourselves and acquire well I this is stuff that's important for us and especially as we raise our children to teach them to love Amen. How What's our language around select? Because a large joke costs a lot amen in the Quran? What's our language around select? Do we say? Oh yeah, well, let's just pray so we can get it out the way and then we can go do a B, C and D do we use that kind of language? Or do we actually love select

00:08:20--> 00:08:35

the prophets I sent him said God, let's put what to it for Salah. My enjoyment has been made with salah and the prophesy son of a saint to be loud originaire be here and he bring us comfort through this salon. A lot of us say arena what minhang

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

bring us comfort by getting it over with

00:08:39--> 00:08:45

let us have comfort despite it despite that. So what is our language around amen?

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

Do we really love it? are we teaching our children are we teaching our children to love it? are we teaching the next generation to really love faith?

00:08:53--> 00:09:40

He says so they love faith was a you know houfy kulu was a you know equilibrium. Well, Carla Haley Come on kufra wolfrum sukawati ca, la eco Rashida, and they despise cocoa. And they despise defiance and food, and they despise alessian are disobedience to a loss of data. So they despise everything that is opposite of faith or that can't that is contrary to faith, whether it destroys faith, from the very foundation which is covered or whether it attacks the completion of faith, which is a full suit which is referring to major sins or alessian, which is referring to to minuses they despise those things. And we have to understand I don't want somebody will come here and take a sound bite

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

and say oh, that's hate preaching. It teaching us to hate. Well, our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said men have been in there, wherever the Linda what after the lead woman and in Africa the statement and email whoever loves for love, and hates for the sake of Allah, any gifts for the sake of Allah and he withholds for the sake of Allah is completed, amen. And those who have

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

don't have those qualities have not completed faith. We're not talking about hate for the sake of hate. We're talking about hating sin, because it creates a barrier between us and Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's the important part here. Not just that we hate the consequences. Many of us may know people who have fallen into sins. They don't necessarily Hate the sin, but they hate the consequences of the sin. So they hate the fact that they got caught cheating on their spouse. Not that they actually did that action, and it pushed them away from their relationship with the loss of habitat and Toba

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

is translated into English as what

00:10:42--> 00:11:21

repentance repentance actually means is slide. So you're fixing your relationship with the loss of Hannah was added, because when you sin, every time we sin, we're messing up part of that relationship with the loss of habitat. And so we hate for those things to come between us and the one we love. So panna hutan. Okay, so again, the believer the Rashid, when we ask Allah for firm determination to be rushed for rushed, we're asking a lot to make, amen, beloved to us, and that he makes those other things that are contrary to human despise to us. That's a larger agenda. You have the villainess, amen, we wouldn't use it you know who people who we know.

00:11:22--> 00:11:27

But then it never does. It has no flexibility has an opener but no Salaam Salaam obata cannon Amina Mohammed
