of your thoughts on your blog was
your head at the
median copy for the most narrated Saturday the annual cost formula
I've heard a lot of a lot he was saying a love of the servant boy is the highest Ronnie three of the copy on notes recorded by us.
Man phenomenal woman you play
a solo ride a ride, he was lucky he was selling them as a
team and my bag
today which is the 12th of June
2017 corresponding to the 17th of Ramadan 1438
We start with the 14 lesson from Janet on balumama and this is an important
because it is a follow up to what we discussed yesterday. Yesterday we talked about the importance of being loved by Allah subhana wa tada What are those things that you can do that gain the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. Many people claim that they love a lot. But the issue is not whether you love love the issue is does Allah love you? How do you know that? What are the things that you can do that earn a loss of pentacles that is love but that aligns with y'all has specifically stated in the grind, or has come into sort of the profit is led us to them. They show us that Allah Subhana Allah loves us. For example, as you know, God says in the Brian in the law that you hit some levena when
that Allah loves those who constantly return to Him and repentance to levy when you hit
he loves those who purify themselves. So this is the legal side, even me what costs are the allowable side angle what was one of the 10
I shot a number
of agenda those 10 know the Prophet sallallaahu salam promised paradise to the famous howdy know there are many other companions who the prophecy still upset with me in paradise. And in fact, many of the scholars of Tafseer say that the statement of Allah subhana wa tada were put alone where the lava newsflash that all of them have been promised a gooseneck which is gentlemen, all of them have been promised agenda that is all of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in this happy, sad demeanor, we will pass who was one of those 10 who are the 10 who have promised paradise but rightfully so.
Okay, so we have the four righteous believers who are who are they
who are there
earth man, and I
will tell you now we have six left.
allow us promise Paradise by the prophet is
not into hiding there are 10 that are famous because they all came in one ad and they were mentioned and they're virtually spam. Yanni supersedes the virtual all of the other campaigns.
Follow ha and so they're
sad even animal cars.
say that was a
sad to say
All the all of the all of these tests are from the Mojave.
They were all from those who were with the property. So I do sampling from the earliest to accept the slump in Mecca.
Sadness, I decided name because it was a
What's it? What's his name?
I've always What's his name?
All right, that's fine. The issue, the issue here is panela is that most of us, most of us, if we were to ask our children to name the players on their favorite soccer team, not only could they name the starters, but they named the guys that never come off the bench.
And it's important for us as Muslims, these are the ones that are the greatest of the companions of the Prophet Isaiah select from Sudan, it's important for us to have out of our love for the companions on the love, ya know, that we at least know who they are, at least know the names of these 10. The side of me will cause and that actually, that brings us to another point. Why did he even say this when he said that I heard the Messenger of Allah. So a lot of it was someone said, say that Allah loves every ad.
Every ad notice here? Yeah, a lot of times we just translate if there's a person or something like that.
But here, Alaska has a different meaning.
Because it shows your servitude to a loss of paradise. And this is a recurring theme as well. And that is that when you are a slave of Allah subhanaw taala, you won't be asleep to anything else. And this is part of this book that we're covering, which is keytab Desert, the book of Zohar to abstain from that which is not going to benefit you and the hereafter. So, that is not to be attached to the dunya. So he loves every slave that is what you need, you configure the proxy Sallam said,
every ad that is tepee. pious is how they translate. We'll talk about that in a minute inshallah bunny which means that he is content, self supervised. And Kofi will stay translated as unnoticed, but also to be translated as secluded which we'll come to know why didn't even mention this hobby.
It's for the last part for that last word, Kofi, that he is unnoticed, or that he is secluded. This had he was actually narrated by the son of size of benevolent cost, his name is Omar.
And what happened was, after a man with the low tide and who was killed.
As you know, there was a difference of opinion amongst the companions about how to handle his murder. How should they deal with the murderers.
So as you know, the alone size and rule was a wonderful beginning, he became the Khalifa obviously. And Malia
had a different opinion. And both of them had their followers. Malia was in Syria at the time. And both of them had their followers and there was a fitna confusion and turmoil that happened amongst the companions. And that was fueled by not the contents by some of them who came after them. And then the people that did not meet the Prophet it aside to saying okay to a sand Lake, and they feel the the flames of that.
And some of the companions were in the camp of it on the level of Thailand, or some of them were in the camp of Maui, or the along with China. And, and as we mentioned previously, all of the campaigns were promised paradise. And from the way of Alison, Noel Jamal is that we don't mention the companions in a bad light, even if they made a mistake, then we can say they were mistaken in that, but not to the point that we begin to curse them, or we take sides or something like this. They are all companions of the messenger of a survival scenario. And they all play the role of making sure that this theme was preserved to the generation that came after them all the way up until this
Some of the companions however, didn't go into either camp because because
They didn't, it wasn't clear to them which camp was the right camp.
I mean, which of them was right? the opinion of it or the opinion of China and also they stopped inside them, and it will cost was one of them who stopped.
He said, my example in the example of those with me who stayed out of the, you know, the fitna, I got the loving
companions. He said, our example is like those who are walking upon the path, the well lit path.
And then all of the sudden, all of a sudden, everything went black.
So some of those who were with us said, this is the right way.
And some of those who were with this said, this is the right way, Danny, each one of them did what he had.
And the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam mentioned that he had a person who was qualified to do it, he had to put forth his opinion in the knee,
what's his best effort forth, and he makes a mistake, he still gets a reward.
And if he is correct, then he gets to rewards, he gets a reward for putting forth that effort to try to determine what was right. And he also gets a reward for being right. So some of the companions said, this is the right way. And others said that is the right way that others have a stance, and they said, wait for the lights to come back on so that we can see the path.
So sorry, if I said that, our example is like the example of those who just said, Stop, wait for the lights to come back on inside rhodiola root, Andrew went out to where the lactic which is a valley west of the profits message like this direction, right? Because this is north in the south. If you were to go out this way for about three or four miles or so you would get to where the LRP
at that time that was considered to be outside of Medina, it was desert. And he just went out and he was with his cameras,
secluded coffee, secluded. And as he was there that day,
you know milking his camels tending to his to his camels, he saw someone approached.
Now the reality is, is that in that area, no one should have been approached. He wasn't expecting anybody to come. And so when he saw a person approaching, he wasn't clear. He didn't know who this person was. He said I wouldn't be let him is shoved. He had the
narration of sight Muslim, which is where this idea of Israel, he said, I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of this plumber.
And it turned out to be his son.
And his son came to Him. And He said to him that the people are in Medina
fighting one another. And you know what the truth is, you know what the truth is, and you have more of a right to be in the forefront.
Because he was one of the greatest complaints after I do the alone time and I see you have more of a right to be in the forefront than many of these other people who have involved themselves in this.
And his father told him very early I heard the Prophet sallallahu his son themselves saying that Allah loves the servant that is to pee.
That is that has tough one. That is a need. That is sufficed and content with what he has and who is happy.
And as the style is saying coffee means scanning along a definition of coffee
is a person who has devoted who is devoted totally to the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and preoccupied with himself. He doesn't get involved in anyone else's affairs.
He said I heard the prompts I said as we translate saluted or or unnoticed but this is the actual definition. Coffee Beans again, someone who has is devoted to the worship of Allah Subhana Medina and preoccupied with themselves doesn't deal with the affairs
this it was collected by a Muslim.
But let's take this step by step because this ID though it was narrated for that particular reason.
It is for everyone to recognize that if you have these three qualities that Allah subhana wa tada
Allah loves these three qualities. He loves them.
Every person with these three qualities at turkey from a tougher and tougher linguistically from what the which means to protect oneself.
And for those of you who have made aamra already, and those of you who are going to make online shala What do you say between the Yemeni corner and the Blackstone
that you may
have been asking me dunya Hashanah fileds, gala tea, Hashanah. What? What Pina, Pina, this this is actually
the command form of the verb that is for makia p joaquina. To protect us, right what
you're asking a lot to protect you from the punishment of the Fire. But tough one is that which protects you from the punishment of a loss of power.
And that which protects you from his punishment is to do what he has commanded and to refrain from what he has prohibited. So this is a tough one. Allah
loves those of his servants who have tough one, this is what this month of Ramadan is about. This is the greatest month side
or the greatest objective of the month of Ramadan is that we obtained suffer.
uncanny and funny. And we know some people need to have the money, right? I mean, one of the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. But the quality of the net. What does that mean?
Does it mean if someone is funny?
rich, rich, what's the opposite of money?
For 14, okay, except that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, Lisa Lena. And guess what a lot of that Lina does not mean that you have a lot of possessions, right? When we think of someone who was rich. We think of a millionaire, a billionaire, someone who gets attached. All right. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that this is not true. wealth. Lisa elearn uncas Mattila bollocky Melina Valentina, Lena, Lena knifes, but it is the richness of the sole meaning meaning one, that you are content
that you are happy with what Allah subhana wa, tada has decreed for you.
And this, anybody who has been rich, at some point in their life, or who is rich right now
recognizes that their happiness is not built upon their possessions, a person to come along, they strive for a very long time to get something that they thought they really wanted.
And then they get it. And they have it for a month, two months, a year, a year and a half within it. It doesn't have the same value to them anymore. And there is fixed on something greater than what is in front of them. And so what happens, they're not happy anymore. They're not content, even though they had the thing that they really want it at that particular time. And they get it. And they're happy with it for a temporary period of time. And then they want something greater, and then they want something more and then they want something after that. And so they are constantly busy with one thing and someone who wants something, is he rich? No, no, that person is not actually rich
because they're not content. The person who is content with what Allah, Allah has decreed for them, does not mean he doesn't have aspirations and he doesn't strive. That's not the case.
But what ever Allah gives him, he is content with that and if he gets more than accompany man, and if he doesn't, he is satisfied.
He is satisfied and that is that is truly that is true wealth
that aligns with gel
grants you pretend that you are content with what Allah
has provided for you. And then we have coffee.
And this is the person as we mentioned, who has
done it designated his time he dedicated his time to the worship of a lost paradise, but this one is not in all cases.
We know that the Prophet before the Prophet we know that in the Quran,
Allah subhana wa gyla
when he tells us the story of the advice that Luke man gave to his son,
part of that advice was,
to command with which you know, to be good.
and prohibited what you know to be monka that was, shouldn't be that which is evil.
And then what each other was spirit and SABIC, and be patient and forbearance with with, with the things that come that come to you, as a result of you commanding with the good and forbidding the evil.
Down, if you are secluded, can you come in with a good and forbidding evil, if you're by yourself tending to your camels, no, there is no command in good and forbidding evil because you're by yourself, you're not with the people, and the Prophet is alive. Listen, Adam says something that is similar to what was mentioned in the ayah. And that is that he said that the movement and the view harder to mess, whilst
the believer goes and mixes with the people, he lives amongst them, he goes to their gatherings and he is patient with the harm that comes to him as a result is better than the believer who seclude himself and is not patient with the harm of the people. So how do we understand this? How do we understand this? How do we understand that by recognizing that not all times and places are the same?
If a believer fears for his Deen
if you fear for your religion, by mixing with the people, then it is better for you to stay secluded.
In this scenario, inside the value of costs, rather your loads,
obviously feared for his deal.
Which side should I be with? It wasn't clear to him and our main hedge as Muslims is that they have Allah is clear. And the Haram is clear. And then there are gray areas with what is our men heads with the gray area that we reframe and we stop when it took us
focus on the MP meaning he was the one who avoids those gray areas has become safe and blameless and as the and as it relates to his reputation.
So the issue of seclusion of being away withdrawing from society is not something that is always praiseworthy.
It is better for a person to go mix with the people. But recognize that when you mess with the people, you're going to see things that are not correct. And so you need to do your best to correct them.
And when we say do your best to correct them, it doesn't mean that you yell and use shout when you say ghastly that's how you stand up in the message somebody whose phone was ringing
during the summer and it was playing some music and it disturbed people in salon and you get up
and you start pointing at him. Yes, he does. Haha. Don't come back to the masjid don't
is the fabulous he Action
Center is not done like that. Now, that's something that shouldn't be in a disturbed sequence salon. There was a man in this semester of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam who allow this phone to go off for three rakaats straight. The person called and hung up and call back and it was Jingle bells, the tone
for three records, you can just imagine that the people around him had a very difficult time concentrating. But he had so much
in his salon, that he couldn't take his hands, the right hand off the left to just turn off his phone because he was so much into the salon.
There are people that believe that you can't move in salon other than the motions of the salad itself. So maybe he's one of those types that believes this slide becomes invalid but look at what you did to this a lot of all of the other people around and this happens in the massage when people need their cell phones.
So we're going to command them with the good in a good way, pull them to the side, you actually when you come to the minister or talk to the man and have the man say something about it, but to do that, that is not going to bring about a positive result. And the law knows best not to mention.
Not to mention that in most of the massages, there are people who come late.
Correct. So when the man slams out, what do those people do?
They want to stand up and they want you to continue to select. Now not only were they subject to the ringtone of this particular individual, now they have to hear your crossbow after the slot while they're trying to make up their one or two, three rockets or whatever it is they have to make up now they have to listen to you scream and shout. So you have to think about these things. The point is, that when you mix with the people, you're going to see things that are that are reprehensible that deserve to be spoken about.
And that gives you an opportunity to command the good and forbid the evil, but you're also going to get some pushback.
And that is what look man told his son was spit out Mr. saavik, because nobody has commanded with good
or forbidding the evil except that there are some people that don't like what they have to say. And they're going to continue in their particular way.
And so, that is going to require some patience from
in general that is better, but if a person fears for his religion, or it is a type of fitna, then it is permissible in this circumstances and perhaps even below that a person withdraws from the society and protects his internet
along with dye line by the color, so
we could see the purple will need
Man's good observance of Islam is that he leaves the matters that are not concerned afforded by a ceremony who said it was possible.
But this is a tremendous headin that was narrated by
those who are the alarm
who narrated the most heavy on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in terms of the service, so he he said that it was hasn't graded it as being fair. And many of the scholars of Hadith have said that this hadith is in fact, Hazard on the writing, dividing, which means that it is fair because there are other collaborating narrations. Not that the particular chain of narration of this ID is fair in and of itself, but that there are other narrations that support it. So there are supporting narrations, and there is no great there's no doubt that this is a great idea. From the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that many of the scholars have said is a fourth is one of four Ahadi
around which the hadith of etiquettes in Islam revolve. This is one of four heavy around which the etiquettes of Islam revolve. And you should know these four headings. The first one is the Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam. And it's for the alumni who said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said they
had to use
enough city that none of you believes his brother when he loves himself. And then there's this heavy
from the person's perfection of his practice of Islam is that he leaves that which does not concern them. The third howdy is the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi wa sallam also narrated by a
let's say, and let him say that which is good or resign. And then the last thing is, is that to the advice of the prophet Isaiah, so that was sent to the man who came to me and said,
Give me some advice. He said,
Don't become angry, don't get angry, don't get angry. Because all of these other etiquettes of exam are built upon you have the ability to think.
And you have to be considerate of your brother to love Him what you love for yourself. You have to think in order to live off that which does not concern you. Once you get angry, what happens.
You're not thinking anymore, you're not in your rights state of mind.
And so in order to maintain the etiquettes of a stand, you have to avoid becoming angry. This has been
is encouraging us to restrict our actions
and our statements to that which will benefit us. And to stay away from anything that is not going to benefit you. So you have to prioritize what you involve yourself in
what you say and what you do. This is from the way of Islam, this is from you practicing Islam. Well, this is also a very important point. And that is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is showing us here that there is a good way that you can practice Islam.
by definition, therefore, there is a bad way to practice this and not all Muslims, will practices land well.
And that's an important point to note that it is not sufficient just to say that you are Muslim, and to think that that's going to be enough. Not all Muslims practices, man. Well, so what does the Prophet somebody was saying to me,
when he says, I mean, Bruce Lee, Al Islam, from the good Islam, from a good practice, on your good practice of Islam.
say that this can mean one of two things or craps both
the first the first, and we should recognize it, because sometimes people say, sometimes people think this has been translated, what does it say? What does it what's the translation?
He leaves the matters, right? He leaves matters that don't concern. Some people think that this means simply that You mind your business.
Okay. So you stay out of other people's business, You mind your own business. And that this is what this means that this is good from your good observance of Islam is that you mind your business. But we need to recognize here that this is part of the hobby. But this is a very deficient understanding of the hobby. So the first part of what it means
what does good Islam me is that you observe all that a last minute data has obligated upon you and you refrain from all that he has forbidden. This is good Islam.
Like that's one definition. The second definition is that person, Al Islam
is synonymous with sin, and it kind of sounds like that person is saying, right. So if you said and you know that same
as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, with your real asked him what his exam of the process don't say.
But he said,
so worship Allah, as though you see him.
if you don't see him,
know that he sees you. So if sane is also of two levels,
the first level is what is known as no shareholder, shareholder to witness.
So you worship Allah Subhana what's Allah as if you witness him? Now, what does that mean? What does that mean? Nobody is going to see along this line.
Nobody's going to see along this line.
So what does it mean? It means that in everything that you see,
you witness the attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada. You witness his science.
When you see that someone is poor and someone else's rich, you witness the justice of Allah subhana wa Tada. When you see an animal, take food to his child. You witness the mercy of a lost count that everything that you see reminds you of Allah tala gelato,
so reminds you of his science. His is his effect.
And he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the after one of the battles and there was a woman
who was going around, she was looking for her child.
And she saw the other children and she was picking them up, bringing her bringing them to her chest so that she can feed them.
And the campaigns were amazed when they saw that the promise of love it was some of them said to them.
Are you amazed by what you see from this woman?
the bed, he is more merciful with his service than this woman is to her own child, not to mention, I mean, CRC was for those children?
How do you think she would be with her own child?
A lot. So Adele is more merciful to his service than that woman is, with her own time, just to show that when a person reaches that level of motion,
then they begin to witness the
effects, or the effects of a larger with those attributes on on his creation, that is a high level, that is a high level of that is the highest level, and that is the level of OSHA, but that there is another level of it. The second part is approximately So I'm talking about, which is a maraca.
So that means that even though you don't get to that level of seeing the effects of allows attributes and everything, you still worship Eliza Joe, knowing that he sees you, and this is a high level of men as well.
Why? Why is that? Because the person who worships Allah Subhana
Allah as if they see him?
Where are they going to go when they want to when they want to see
nowhere, because they know that there's nowhere to go.
This is a very high level of men, because every time something inside of them or some external influences, pushing them to be disobedient to a last panel data, they recognize that a lot as to what is watching them.
And so they're not going to disobeyed him, they're not going to disobey them.
Now find that just to give you a contemporary example, so that we can kind of picture these two levels of a sentence.
to any of you teach here, and there weren't any of
you heard of the term of neurotic.
neurotic is an invigilator, or somebody who practice the exam. Have you ever taken an exam, that you usually have someone or two people in the exam room, right, the walk up and down, to make sure that what?
No one's right there, making sure that no one is cheating by a person who wants to cheat.
When there is someone watching in the room,
they're going to be very reluctant.
Because they know that this person is watching. Even if the person is standing at the back of the room, and that person is facing to the front and they want to cheat. They're still very hesitant, because they know that there's a very good possibility that the person standing behind them is watching.
Okay, but it still might cross their mind, maybe I can pull the paper out of my chest pocket, I'm just putting here on the test and you won't see it, there's still some degree of
any, you can say some hope that they'll be able to get away from away with. But if the invigilator or the practice is standing right next to them, and they can see that person watching.
They lose all hope of cheating. Correct. This is the difference between Lucia and Morocco? Who Shahada to worship Allah as if you see him.
The thought of disobeying doesn't even cross your mind.
The love of Allah subhana wa tada is always present than hoping him and that fear is always present.
is like the teacher at the back of the class. You know, he's there, you know, he's watching, but there still may be some hope that there could be a you could cheat, right?
So, and many of the scholars say that cheating is from the major sins by the way. We shouldn't take that. Like, there's the prophets of light. It was something that Russia, but he's the one who cheats is not from us, is not from us. That indicates sort of
Probably someone says something as someone who's not from us as an indication that it's a major sin, I think about think about it as one
would you would you have surgery performed by a doctor that you know cheated on his medical exams?
I mean, many people cheat their way through university, and then get a degree and then they go into practice. And then they have to be very careful about the money that they're receiving.
it is money that is built on a Shahada to Zoo a
false Certificate of false diploma. And in that they really didn't earn because they cheated.
Along was that, like, the point is that there's a difference between Okay, just to give you another example, if a person goes on a road, and that road says monitored by radar, you know that there are police up and down the road or their cameras
up and down that road, you're going to be careful to monitor your speed. Correct. But if you actually see the camera, or you actually see the police car, what happens? You become extra cautious, you're not even going to go to the speed limit, you're gonna go below the speed limit, right, just to make sure that there is no Morocco permission, you know that you're being watched. But when you actually see there's a different level. So the profit is slightly lower than when he's talking about us in LA slang.
What we gain from this is that Islam is of different levels, that the Muslims themselves are on different levels.
Just like we have a man that goes there fluctuates up and down the ebbs and flows, of Eman Islam is also on different levels.
And the last panel data and it's important to know these things because as a Muslim, we want to try to be at the at the highest level. So the Buddhist lamp.
Other scholars have said that it incorporates everything that we just mentioned, and incorporates doing what Allah has commanded you to do and staying away from what is prohibited. And this is the lowest level of personnel Islam, of your good practice of Islam, and the highest level is Excel. And when we see that there's a levels to a to Islam, that we want to be from the highest level last count data, seven different atoma over example, Edina stuffie, lemony bednet
let me know volleyball
woman who doesn't want
to be a last kind of data set in this
that he has chosen service
from amongst those who have inherited the book, what book is talking about?
so I lost my dad has given us the book, he has chosen His servants from amongst those servants, whom have been given this book whom he has chosen and they are the Muslims
from amongst the Muslims at barley Moline have seen
those who oppressed themselves
a Muslim, but he has oppressed himself, either by doing something that is hard, or by leaving of something that alone is obligated. And we shouldn't just think about we think about the salon. Okay, I'm the life pray five times a day, I don't leave off my prayers. Right. There are other ways you got to this man man.
Being dutiful to your parents is a legit business man. And a lot of times, we fall way short in that area.
Providing for your family is a wagon. This is something that is an obligation that
some people are very happy
to put themselves and their families in a situation where they have to take handouts from the government.
Not not because they genuinely need to,
because that's a different situation. But because that's the way they love to live.
But it is your obligation as a Muslim man
to be a productive member of society and to provide for your family.
So there are Muslims who oppressed themselves by leaving off
that was a lot
So john is obligated,
or that they do those things with the last pet that has proven I mean, oh, golly, Molina woman.
And then they are those who travel. And then of course,
the middle, of course, is what we've already mentioned, from hairstylist, men, you do what you're supposed to do, you refrain from those things which you are supposed to refrain from all of them.
All of them. This is, this is the middle course, or a middle path, where minimum savvy home Bill Pay live TV in the lab. And then there are those who race to do the good bye last panel, which is Lee, Eliza Joe has granted them disability. And the reason why those kind of data are one of the wisdom finalizers you're mentioning that here is so that a person who does race to do good, they don't just pray five times a day, but they also pray and they pray witches, and they pray they're similar. So they pray, and they pray. They don't just fast the month of Ramadan. They fasted for the Mondays and Thursdays or maybe just Mondays or three times and every month but they fast. And mahalo and so on,
on, and so on.
So they're pushing themselves, because we learn to recognize that if you are from those people were raised to do the good that it is because Eliza gel has granted you that ability, not because of your own self and not so that you can think that you are better than someone else. But that because the last Hill dial has guided you to that. And so you should be thankful to Allah show gratitude to Allah spelled out as he'll humbly lead. And then say Alhamdulillah, because he granted you the tobique to remember to thank him for guiding you and then say Alhamdulillah, again, perpetually, because you can't think Allah subhanaw taala enough. And that is the greatest gift that Allah
subhanaw taala guide you to Islam, and that he makes you firm upon the deen
of Islam, because that's the only thing that is going to bring you true happiness in this life is that you have a connection to the one who agreed. Otherwise, when those people who have all that they're doing it has to offer, they don't know a lot of counterbalances if they know nothing.
Because there remains a facade or emptiness in the inside that can never be filled without the knowledge of a loss of contact. That is what the heart was created for.
Me no one valuable enough. See, we asked the last method and not to make this almost those people who have oppressed themselves.
And then there are those who traveled the middle course. Then there are those who are savvy, to race to do those good deeds, the Muslims are different levels, you should not be satisfied with anything less than striving to please Allah subhanaw taala to strive to be from amongst those who are
savvy, one will highlight race to do the bill. Daddy got one problem. This is the great bounty from Allah Subhana Allah was added when hosting Islam and mark. So that covers the issue of hosting al Islam,
then we have the issue of leaving off that which does not concern. And these are four things four categories. I mentioned that quickly with some examples so that we're very clear on what this means. The four categories, the first thing that doesn't concern you as anything that is hot with Islam from your good practice of Islam is to what leave off the process Some said to me, that which is not concerning to leave to abandon to refrain from the harm.
That is part of your good practice of Islam.
So leave off that which is
because a person who constantly indulges in metal and knocks on that door, that door is going to open him behind it is what
the third thing is to leave off
as much Mr. beheads that gray area this is part of your perfection the practice, your practice, your perfecting your practice of Islam
is to leave off the monster behind the gray areas, those things which make you uncomfortable.
You're not sure.
Okay, all of those are clear. The fourth one is the one where we have to work on
and that is what the scholars call balloon and MOBA hats over indulging in in the permissible over indulging in the Hello.
This is what you need to
In order to be a good practitioner of Islam.
What does that mean to overindulge in the halau talking is Hello. But too much talking, eating is halau. But too much eating, which is the next
is Hello. But over sleeping, excessive sleeping. This is a Muslim has to stay away from that.
We mentioned before the statement of affiliate or the allaahu tag and
one of the great scholars of Islam said that he has three things that make your heart hard
overeating, over sleeping, and excessive talk.
And all the notes of excessive talking is what many would describe this heavy to me
the issue of leaving off that which does not concern,
talking about things that don't concern and acquire quiet.
And take advantage of the opportunity of Ramadan when you are more conscious than normal to leave off talking about that which doesn't concern.
Some people get together
with their families.
One of them as a businessman, another as a mechanic, another as a doctor, another as an engineer.
They get together for an hour and a half. You know, they talk about
This government doesn't do that. This government, they're not real Muslims. These ones are not whatever
that concerns you, beloved, by Allah azza wa jal that concerns you, and you're going to be able to do something about it, those people were sitting around that room, what is the action point they left, that's going to come out of an hour and a half of talking about this government or that government. And they don't do this. And they don't do that, right. And they'll press me. After an hour and a half. Let's just assume that everything you said was true.
Which, which is another problem, because 75 to 90% of the time, you don't even know what you're talking about.
The news, your information about what the government is or is not doing comes through a filter that has an agenda, period, whether that agenda is left or right, or centrist or whatever, they still have an agenda.
And the information that comes to you is filtered through that particular agenda.
So you take that, and some of the people who are sitting around are progressives and others are right wing and everybody is having a ball. And then your action item after an hour and a half is what you came out with what from that whole discussion, nothing that concerns period.
You couldn't take that hour and a half to learn in your mind. Since we're together. Why don't we help one another? Yeah. And why don't we help each other learn and it's gonna take 10 minutes to make this larger, the profit is selected and used to make daily what law do you get people will come and say, I can't memorize the bride. They've been Muslim for 20 years, they don't know just
Johnny juice is 20 pages.
That means for a whole year, you couldn't memorize one page.
And then you wonder why it's so difficult to get your wife to pray by you because she's tired of hearing the same song over and over again, I think learn some of your theme and teach your family.
But the reality is, is because we spend so much time engaged in either Mohan moku a gray area or excessive something that is permissible. We don't use our time wisely to do that which is going to benefit us in this life in the here act.
And that is why this is so important.
That is why if you know this Howdy. And the next time something like that happens, you need to be the one to say it why maybe we should change the subject and talk about something that is going to be beneficial. Again, it does not mean that you can't talk about things that are just move back
You want to talk with your friend about the game last night? This Championship match with this man. Okay, fine.
There's nothing that makes that Haram in Islam. Right. But you do have to realize that that lady, at the end of the day, it really doesn't concern. You may have made it concern, because you like a particular sport, but it doesn't really concern you is the point. This is this is why
the scholars when they talk about what concerns you,
they made a point to mention those categories. Because some things you may think concern and they really don't.
And other things you think do not concern you and they do. the plight of the oma is something that should concern every Muslim Muslims who are being oppressed around the world, no matter where they are, should be every Muslims concern a Muslim, Muslim or non Muslim, not many California will like the building, it should bother Obama, we reinforce one another.
Now, how you deal with that concern is another issue altogether. It doesn't mean that you sit back and you say, you know, Muslims are being oppressed in this particular land, I'm gonna go fight jihad, jihad, are you talking about exactly that? You
know, say, Allah tm la?
do jihad for yourself to stand up and pray at night? How about that? Start there? Start by increasing your practice of Islam and drawing closer to Allah.
Start by making do on the last third of the night? Start by praying in Japan. No, we have people some handler yesterday he was in a nightclub. And the next day he should he gave out is that happen? Because he's concerned with the Muslims are lost hands Allah knows best.
The point is that
we have to, we have to recognize that there are things that should concern us as Muslims, they are our concerns, whether you take the initiative to do anything about that concern or not. And there are other things that we may be concerned with, that are not our concern.
We may be I'm saying as individual Muslims, you may be concerned about
what happens in a particular place, or this sports star injuring himself or something like that, you may be concerned with that.
But it's not it doesn't concern you in reality. So that's why it's very important to understand this hobby, in light of what the prophet is allowed to sit in, was actually talking about so that we can avoid those things which don't concern us and spend our time doing the things that do concern is because we have to pluses
that many of us are cheated out of the profit is like with Samsung, and that is free time as your health. It is no excuses from a lottery. God is there too many Muslims, when you ask them why they stay is the way it is, they say because they don't have enough time
in this hobby to provide service teaching us to prioritize, not that you don't have enough time, you're a bad time manager.
You have to manage your time properly because you have not prioritized properly.
And once you put things in perspective, what is it that really should concern me as a Muslim? And what should it
be it should concern you that you've been a Muslim for how many years that you've been practicing Islam for how many years and you cannot read the Quran
you cannot be assigned property that should concern
and there are a lot of other things that should not this hiding from the private it so it Sam is teaching us to prioritize and to restrict.
Because that's the that's another thing here. The problem is some said it's harder to live off something that this becomes really bad a lot of times when we think about what makes a good Muslim, from the good Islam, your good practices, man, we think about what he does. He prays he, for example, makes her own rock. He is good to his parents. He doesn't even we don't think about what he doesn't do and this is the process I sent him a saying here that we have to be concerned about leaving off that which does not concern us and that is part of your good and your good practice of Islam and your perfection of your practice of Islam.
