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

The Enterprise socialism

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

thought

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

in

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

your head for the

00:00:37--> 00:00:54

media the copy from the Muslim narrated Saturday will cost me a lot more. I know. I've heard a lot of a lot he was saying a love of the sermon boys be pious Ronnie, three of the copy on notes recorded by myself.

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

Man, phenomenal woman you play

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

a lot

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

was shawanna Mohammedan andora solo solo la vida. He was like me he was selling them as a

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

team and my back

00:01:28--> 00:01:33

today which is the 12th of June

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

2017 corresponding to the 17th of Ramadan 1438

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

We start with the 14 blessing chrome eternal jam on balumama and this is an important

00:01:47--> 00:02:31

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 a love the issue is does a loss of love you How do you know that? What are the things that you can do that earn a loss of pentacles that is love well that aligns with Joe has specifically stated in the Brian or has come into sort of the profit is allowed us to them? They show us that Allah Subhana Allah loves us for example last year God says in the Brian in the law that you have to levena Are

00:02:31--> 00:02:31

you

00:02:32--> 00:02:41

kidding, that Allah loves those who constantly returned to him and repentance to levy when you hit?

00:02:43--> 00:02:54

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

00:02:58--> 00:03:40

billion natural machining agenda those 10 on the Prophet sallallaahu Selim promised paradise to the famous howdy know there are many other companions who the prophecy is so 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, the 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 Howdy, sadly many of you will pass was one of those 10 who are the 10 who have promised paradise but rightfully so.

00:03:43--> 00:03:47

Okay, so we have the four righteous believers who are who were they

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

were there

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

on

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

earth man. And I

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

will tell you now we have six left.

00:04:03--> 00:04:03

We now

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

allow us promise Paradise by the prophet is

00:04:09--> 00:04:21

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.

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

Follow ha and so there

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

have been no cause.

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

I want

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

to

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

say that was a

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

sad to say today.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

Sorry.

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

We're not

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

sorry.

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

All the all of the all of these tests are from the Mojave.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

They were all from those who were with the Prophet is assembly from the earliest to accept this land, and in Mecca.

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

All kinds of a sadness, I decided navel cos it was a

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

What's it? What's his name?

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

I've always, what's his name?

00:05:46--> 00:06:06

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.

00:06:07--> 00:06:43

And it's important for us as Muslims, these are the ones that are the greatest of the companions of the Prophet Isaiah SelectUSA them, it's important for us to have out of our love for the companions on the lower end home, 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.

00:06:45--> 00:06:51

Every ad notice here, yeah, a lot of times we just translate if there's a person or something like that.

00:06:52--> 00:07:28

But here, Alaska has a different meaning and the local deal, because it shows your servitude to a lost 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 supreme union Bernie, you copied you said

00:07:30--> 00:07:48

every ad that is tepee pious is how they translate. We'll talk about that in a minute, inshallah funny, which means that he is content, self survice. And caffeine which they translated as unnoticed, but also to be translated as secluded, which we'll come to know why didn't even mention this hobby.

00:07:50--> 00:08:03

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 Armand.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

And what happened was, after a man with the low tide and who was killed,

00:08:14--> 00:08:24

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.

00:08:25--> 00:09:04

So as you know, the alone size and rule was a wonderful beginning, he became the Khalifa, obviously. And my wife and me, Sudan on the lower side, and we 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 was saying okay to a sand lake. And they filled the the flames of that.

00:09:05--> 00:09:51

And some of the companions were in the camp of it on the level of China and on some of them were 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 noble 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 psycho sedan, 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

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

generation.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

Some of the companions however, didn't go into either camp because because

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

They didn't, it wasn't clear to them which camp was the right camp.

00:10:06--> 00:10:17

And in which of them was right the opinion of it or the opinion of China. And also they stopped. Inside, of course, was one of them who stopped.

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

He said, my example in the example of those with me who stayed out of the, you know, the fitna, I got the love and

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

other

00:10:31--> 00:10:36

things. He said, our example is like those who are walking upon the path, the well lit path.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

And then all of the sudden, all of a sudden, everything went black.

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

So some of those who were with us said, this is the right way.

00:10:52--> 00:10:58

And some of those who were with this said, this is the right way, Danny, each one of them did what he had.

00:10:59--> 00:11:10

And the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam mentioned that he had, that he is the person who was qualified to do it, he had to put forth his opinion in the knee,

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

what's his best effort forth, and he makes a mistake, he still gets a reward.

00:11:17--> 00:11:38

And if he is correct, then he gets to rewards, he gets to 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. And others have a stance. And they said wait for the lights to come back on so that we can see the path

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

and suicide

00:11:42--> 00:12:07

cost 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 messy like this direction, right? Because this is north and south. If you were to go out this way for about three or four miles or so you would get to where the LRP

00:12:08--> 00:12:15

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,

00:12:17--> 00:12:24

secluded coffee, secluded. And as he was there that day,

00:12:25--> 00:12:31

you know milking his camels tending to his to his camels. He saw someone approached.

00:12:33--> 00:12:48

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 really love him. And shepley has a

00:12:49--> 00:12:56

narration of sight Muslim, which is where this honeybees fell. He said, I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of this plumber.

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

And it turned out to be his son.

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

And his son came to Him. And He said to him, that the people are in Medina

00:13:08--> 00:13:18

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.

00:13:19--> 00:13:32

Because he was one of the greatest complaints after I do the alone time and so you have more of a right to be in the forefront than many of these other people who have involved themselves in this.

00:13:34--> 00:13:44

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.

00:13:45--> 00:13:53

That is that has tough one. That is a need. That is suffice and content with what he has and who was happy.

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

And as the style is saying coffee means scanning along a definition of coffee

00:14:01--> 00:14:12

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.

00:14:14--> 00:14:33

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 himself doesn't deal with the affairs

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

like

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

this it was collected by a Muslim.

00:14:42--> 00:14:47

But let's take this step by step because this ID though it was narrated for that particular reason.

00:14:48--> 00:14:56

It is for everyone to recognize that if you have these three qualities that Allah Subhana

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Allah loves these three qualities he loves them

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

Every person with these three qualities at some key from a tougher and tougher linguistically from what the which means to protect oneself.

00:15:14--> 00:15:25

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

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

that you may

00:15:29--> 00:15:39

have been asking me dunya Hashanah, calendula, tea, Hashanah, what? What Pina Pina, this this is actually

00:15:40--> 00:15:47

the command form of the verb that is from rakia p joaquina. To protect us, right what

00:15:48--> 00:15:59

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.

00:16:00--> 00:16:11

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

00:16:12--> 00:16:20

loves those of his servants who have tough one, this is what this month of Ramadan is about. This is the greatest month side

00:16:21--> 00:16:26

or the greatest objective of the month of Ramadan is that we obtained suffer.

00:16:28--> 00:16:43

uncanny and funny. And we know some people named Bill honey, right? I mean, one of the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. But the quality of the net. What does that mean?

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

Does it mean if someone is funny?

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

rich, rich, what's the opposite of money?

00:16:54--> 00:17:42

For 4pm Okay, except that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said, Lisa, Lena, and Kathy are tilava that V net 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 Lena and cats Mattila bollocky Melina Valentina, Lena, Lena knifes, but it is the richness of the soul. Meaning meaning one, that you are content

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

that you are happy with what Allah subhana wa, tada has decreed for you.

00:17:50--> 00:17:57

And this, anybody who has been rich, at some point in their life, or who is rich right now

00:17:58--> 00:18:12

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.

00:18:13--> 00:18:19

And then they get it. And they have it for a month, two months, a year, a year and a half, and

00:18:21--> 00:19:08

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,

00:19:09--> 00:19:14

does not mean he doesn't have aspirations that he doesn't strive. That's not the case.

00:19:15--> 00:19:25

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.

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

He is satisfied and that is that is truly that is true wealth

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

that aligns with gel

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

grants you content to our content with what Allah

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

has provided for you. And then we have coffee.

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

And this is the person as we mentioned, who has

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

done it designated his time and dedicated his time to the worship of a lost paradise. But this one is not in all cases.

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

We know that the Prophet before the Prophet we know that in the Quran,

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

Allah subhana wa gyla

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

when he tells us the story of the advice that Luke man gave to his son,

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

part of that advice was,

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

what more

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

to command with which you know to be good.

00:20:27--> 00:20:37

When mooncup and prohibited, which you know to be monka that was, shouldn't be that which is evil.

00:20:38--> 00:20:53

And then what did he tell him, was fifth and SABIC, and be patient and forbearing. With with, with the things that come that come to you, as a result of you commanding, with the good and forbidding the evil.

00:20:55--> 00:21:19

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 Isaiah 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

00:21:25--> 00:21:52

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 secludes 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?

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

If a believer fears for his Deen

00:21:57--> 00:22:04

if you fear for your religion, by mixing with the people, then it is better for you to stay secluded.

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

In this scenario, inside the benevolent costs, rather your loads,

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

obviously feared for his deal.

00:22:16--> 00:22:37

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 refrain, and we stop when it took us.

00:22:39--> 00:22:54

Earlier, he was the one who avoids those gray areas has become safe, and blameless and as the and as it relates to his reputation.

00:22:56--> 00:23:07

So the issue of seclusion of being away withdrawing from society is not something that is always praiseworthy.

00:23:09--> 00:23:21

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.

00:23:22--> 00:23:33

And when we say do your best to correct them, it doesn't mean that you yell and use shout when you say actually that's how you stand up in the message somebody whose phone was ringing

00:23:34--> 00:23:40

during the salon and it was playing some music and it disturbed people in salon and you get up

00:23:41--> 00:23:46

and you start pointing at him Yes, he does. Haha. Don't come back to the masjid don't

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

is the fabulous he Action

00:23:55--> 00:24:16

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

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

for three records, you can just imagine that the people around him had a very difficult time concentrating. But he had so much food

00:24:30--> 00:24:41

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.

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

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 his salad 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.

00:25:01--> 00:25:17

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.

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

Not to mention that in most of the massages, there are people who come late.

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

Correct. So when the man slams out, what do those people do?

00:25:28--> 00:25:58

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.

00:26:02--> 00:26:08

And that gives you an opportunity to command the good and forbid the evil, but you're also going to get some pushback.

00:26:09--> 00:26:14

And that is what look man told his son was spit out Mr. saavik, because nobody has commanded with good

00:26:16--> 00:26:22

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 and their particular way.

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

And so that is going to require some patience from

00:26:30--> 00:26:47

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 is the man.

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

Long timeline.

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

We could see it.

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

For a while somebody Ravana has

00:27:04--> 00:27:04

a lot of questions.

00:27:07--> 00:27:16

Man's good observance of Islam is that he leaves the matters that did not concern him afforded by a ceremony who said it was possible.

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

But this is a tremendous heading that was narrated by

00:27:22--> 00:28:11

those who are the Allahu annual, 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, has a non 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 tip from the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that many of the scholars have said is a fourth is one of

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

four Ahadi

00:28:13--> 00:28:34

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 I think the first one is the Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam enniscorthy. Allahu anhu, said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said they

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

had to use

00:28:39--> 00:28:45

enough city that none of you believes his brother when he loves himself. And then there's this hobby

00:28:46--> 00:28:59

from the person's perfection of his practice of Islam is that he leaves that which does not concern him. The third howdy is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, also narrated by a

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

mechanical

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

failure only,

00:29:05--> 00:29:15

let's say, and let him say that which is good or resign. And then the last Hadith is the added to the advice of the prophet Isaiah. So that was sent to the man who came to me and said,

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

Give me some advice. He said,

00:29:20--> 00:29:32

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.

00:29:34--> 00:29:44

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.

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

You're not thinking anymore, you're not in your right state of mind.

00:29:50--> 00:29:57

And so in order to maintain the etiquettes of Islam, you have to avoid becoming angry. This has been

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

the Prophet

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

salatu salam

00:30:03--> 00:30:08

is encouraging us to restrict our actions

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

and our statements to that which will benefit us.

00:30:15--> 00:30:24

And to stay away from anything that is not going to benefit you. So you have to prioritize what you involve yourself in

00:30:25--> 00:30:44

what you say and what you do. This is from the way of Islam, this is from you practicing Islam. Well, and this is also a very important point in that is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is showing us here that there is a good way that you can practice Islam.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

And by

00:30:49--> 00:30:57

by definition, therefore, there is a bad way to practice this and not all Muslims, will practices land well.

00:30:59--> 00:31:12

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,

00:31:13--> 00:31:25

when he says, mean, Bruce Lee, Al Islam, from the good Islam, from a good practice, on your good practice of Islam?

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

The scholars

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

say that this can mean one of two things or craps both

00:31:34--> 00:31:43

the first the first, and we should recognize it, because sometimes people say, sometimes people think this has been translated, what does it say? It looks at the translation.

00:31:46--> 00:31:57

He leaves the matters, right? He leaves matters that don't concern me. Some people think that this means simply that You mind your business.

00:31:58--> 00:32:22

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

00:32:23--> 00:32:34

what does good Islam me is that you observe all that a last minute data as obligated upon you and you refrain from all that he has forbidden. This is good Islam.

00:32:35--> 00:32:43

Like that's one definition. The second definition is that person, Al Islam

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

is synonymous with

00:32:48--> 00:32:56

sin, and it kind of sounds like that person, if sent, right? So if you said and you know that same

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said with you real asked him what his exam what the process I'm saying.

00:33:04--> 00:33:05

But he said,

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

so worship Allah, as though you see him.

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

But

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

if you don't see him,

00:33:16--> 00:33:22

know that he sees you. So if sane is also of two levels,

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

the first level is what is known as shareholder, shareholder to witness.

00:33:30--> 00:33:44

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.

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

Nobody's going to see along this line.

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

So what does it mean? It means that in everything that you see,

00:33:55--> 00:34:01

you witness the attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada. You witness his science.

00:34:02--> 00:34:22

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. We witness the mercy of a lost count on everything that you see reminds you of Allah tala gelato,

00:34:23--> 00:34:28

so reminds you of his science is is his effect.

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

And he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

and the after one of the battles and there was a woman

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

who was going around, she was looking for her child.

00:34:43--> 00:34:51

And she saw the other children and she was picking them up, bringing her bringing them to her chest so that she could feed them.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

And the campaigns were amazed when they saw that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them

00:35:01--> 00:35:04

Are you amazed by what you see from this woman?

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

Verily alized

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

is

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

the bed, he is more merciful with his service than this woman is to her own time Not to mention, I mean, CRC was for those children?

00:35:23--> 00:35:25

How do you think she would be with her own child?

00:35:26--> 00:35:40

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,

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

when they begin to witness the

00:35:45--> 00:36:07

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.

00:36:08--> 00:36:23

So that means that even though you don't get to that level of seeing the effects of allows attributes in everything, you still worship Eliza Joe, knowing that he sees you, and this is a high level of men as well.

00:36:25--> 00:36:30

Why? Why is that? Because the person who worships Allah subhana wa,

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

as if they see him?

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

Where are they going to go when they want to when they want to see

00:36:43--> 00:36:46

nowhere, because they know that there's nowhere to go.

00:36:49--> 00:37:05

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, which is watching them,

00:37:06--> 00:37:10

and so they're not going to disobeyed him, they're not going to disobey them.

00:37:11--> 00:37:20

Now find that in just to give you a contemporary example, so that we can kind of picture these two levels of a sentence.

00:37:23--> 00:37:27

to any of you teach here, and there weren't any of you

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

heard of the term of neurotic?

00:37:33--> 00:37:48

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?

00:37:50--> 00:37:58

No one's right there, making sure that no one is cheating by a person who wants to cheat.

00:38:00--> 00:38:04

When there is someone watching in the room,

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

they're going to be very reluctant.

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

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 them. Okay, but it still might cross their mind, believe me, I can pull the paper out of my chest pocket and just putting here on the test and you won't see it, there's still some degree of

00:38:43--> 00:38:58

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.

00:38:59--> 00:39:12

They lose all hope of team. Correct. This is the difference between Russia and Morocco, who Shahada to worship Allah as if you see him.

00:39:15--> 00:39:18

The thought of disobeying doesn't even cross your mind.

00:39:20--> 00:39:27

The love of Allah subhana wa tada is always present than hoping him and that fear is always present.

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

Whereas Manasa

00:39:31--> 00:39:38

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

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

hope that there could be a you could cheat, right?

00:39:44--> 00:39:59

So, and many of the scholars say that cheating is from the major sins by the way. We shouldn't take that like, because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that Russia, but he's the one who cheats is not from us, is not from us. That indicates sort of

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Probably someone says something as someone who's not from us as an indication that it's a major sin. Think about think about it as one

00:40:07--> 00:40:13

would you would you have surgery performed by a doctor that you know cheated on his medical exams?

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

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.

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

Because perhaps,

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

it is money that is built on a Shahada to Zoo a

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

false certificates of boss diploma. And, you know, they really didn't earn because they cheated

00:40:43--> 00:40:57

along with that, but 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

00:40:58--> 00:41:31

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 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 Prophet is allowed to listen to them when he's talking about person, Al Islam.

00:41:33--> 00:41:43

What we gain from this is that Islam is of different levels, that the Muslims themselves are on different levels.

00:41:45--> 00:41:56

Just like we have a man that goes that fluctuates up and down the ebbs and flows, of Eman Islam is also on different levels

00:41:57--> 00:42:07

and allows the parent to add that 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 lamb

00:42:09--> 00:42:37

other scholars have said that it in incorporates everything that we just mentioned, and incorporates doing for the law 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, the lowest common data center for

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

example, Edina stuffing them in a bed in

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

Birmingham, volleyball in

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

Wyoming.

00:42:48--> 00:42:52

Wyoming home savvy home bill hayati within the law daddy

00:42:54--> 00:42:56

Alaska data set in this app

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

that he has chosen service

00:43:02--> 00:43:07

from amongst those who have inherited the book that book is talking about

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

the Quran.

00:43:11--> 00:43:23

So lasuna 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

00:43:24--> 00:43:29

from amongst the Muslims at barley monoline have seen

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

those who oppressed themselves

00:43:35--> 00:43:57

a Muslim, but he has oppressed himself, either by doing something that is fun, 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 get to this landmass while

00:43:58--> 00:44:07

being dutiful to your parents is a legit businessman. And a lot of times, we fall way short in that area.

00:44:09--> 00:44:16

Providing for your family is a wagon. This is something that is an obligation that

00:44:17--> 00:44:19

some people are very happy

00:44:20--> 00:44:26

to put themselves and their families in a situation where they have to take handouts from the government.

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

Not not because they genuinely need to,

00:44:33--> 00:44:38

because that's a different situation. But because that's the way they love to live.

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

But it is your obligation as a Muslim man

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

to be a productive member of society and to provide for your family.

00:44:53--> 00:44:58

So there are Muslims who oppressed themselves by leaving off

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

that was a lot

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

origin is obligate Yanni, or that they do those things with the loss of habitat as proven amino, Bali Molina.

00:45:12--> 00:45:14

And then they are those who travel. And then of course,

00:45:16--> 00:45:25

the middle of course, is what we've already mentioned, from hairstylist, man, you do what you're supposed to do you refrain from those things which you are supposed to refrain from all of them,

00:45:26--> 00:46:14

all of them. This is, this is the middle course for our middle path, while minimum savvy home Bill Pay live TV in the lab. And then there are those who race to do the good bilasa Panda, 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 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 as soon as 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 they fast Ashura And mahalo and so

00:46:14--> 00:46:15

on. So I've been asked

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

to modify and so on.

00:46:19--> 00:47:01

So they are pushing themselves, believe me 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 tofik 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

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

guide you to Islam, and that he makes you firm upon the deen

00:47:06--> 00:47:21

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 loving those people who have all that the dunya has to offer, they don't know a lot of counterbalances if they know nothing.

00:47:22--> 00:47:31

Because there remains a frog 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.

00:47:33--> 00:47:38

Minimum valuable enough. See, we asked the last method and not to make this wrong most those people who have oppressed themselves.

00:47:39--> 00:47:57

And then there are those who traveled the middle course. Then there are those who are savvy in the hierarchy race to do those good deeds, the Muslims are different levels, you should not be satisfied with anything less than striving to please Allah Subhana data to strive to be for most those who are

00:47:58--> 00:48:15

savvy, humble tyrants who race to do the bill. Daddy got one problem to be here. This is the great bounty from Allah Subhana, which had been hosting Islam in Makkah. So that covers the issue of hosts in Islam,

00:48:16--> 00:48:47

then we have the issue of leaving off that which does not concern. And these are four things four categories are 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 a person Islam from your good practice of Islam is to what to leave off the process don't say to leave that which does not concern you to leave to abandon to refrain from the harm.

00:48:48--> 00:48:52

That is part of your good practice of Islam.

00:48:54--> 00:48:56

So leave off that which is

00:48:58--> 00:49:05

because a person who constantly indulges in methods and knocks on that door, that door is going to open him behind it is what

00:49:09--> 00:49:11

the third thing is to leave off

00:49:13--> 00:49:23

as much Mr. beheads that gray area this is part of your perfection the practice, your practice, your perfecting your practice of Islam

00:49:24--> 00:49:31

is to leave off the monster behind the gray areas those things which make you uncomfortable.

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

You're not sure.

00:49:35--> 00:49:40

Okay, all of those are clear. The fourth one is the one where we have to work on

00:49:42--> 00:49:55

and that is what the scholars called full moon and MOBA hat over indulging in in the permissible over indulging in the Hello.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

This is what you need to

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

leave off

00:50:02--> 00:50:07

in order to be a good practitioner of Islam.

00:50:08--> 00:50:21

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

00:50:24--> 00:50:25

sleeping

00:50:26--> 00:50:35

is Hello. But over sleeping, excessive sleeping. This is a Muslim has to stay away from that.

00:50:37--> 00:50:49

We mentioned before this fake banal live, while the Allahu taala Andrew Cooper Rahim Allah tada one of the great scholars of Islam so that he has three things that make your heart hard.

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

overeating, over sleeping, and excessive talk.

00:50:57--> 00:51:04

And all the notes of excessive talking is what many would describe this heavy, to me.

00:51:06--> 00:51:08

The issue of leaving off that which does not concern,

00:51:11--> 00:51:17

talking about things that don't concern and acquire quiet.

00:51:19--> 00:51:30

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.

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

Some people get together

00:51:34--> 00:51:36

with their families.

00:51:37--> 00:51:44

One of them as a businessman, another as a mechanic, another as a doctor, another as an engineer.

00:51:47--> 00:51:50

They get together for an hour and a half, you know, they talk about

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

politics.

00:51:57--> 00:52:03

This government doesn't do that. This government, they're not real Muslims. These ones are not whatever

00:52:04--> 00:52:30

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 the after an hour and a half, let's just assume that everything you said was true.

00:52:31--> 00:52:39

Which is, which is another problem, because 75 to 90% of the time, you don't even know what you're talking about.

00:52:40--> 00:52:57

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.

00:52:59--> 00:53:03

And the information that comes to you is filtered through that particular agenda.

00:53:04--> 00:53:21

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 you. Period.

00:53:22--> 00:53:42

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 will lie lobby, and you get people come and say, I can't memorize the bride. They've been Muslim for 20 years, they don't don't use

00:53:45--> 00:53:47

Johnny juice is 20 pages.

00:53:49--> 00:53:53

That means for a whole year, you couldn't memorize one page.

00:53:55--> 00:54:08

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, as you learn some of your theme and teach your family.

00:54:09--> 00:54:31

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.

00:54:33--> 00:54:35

And that is why this is so important.

00:54:37--> 00:54:59

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

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

You want to talk with your friend about the game last night? This Championship match with this man. Okay, fine.

00:55:08--> 00:55:26

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

00:55:28--> 00:55:31

the scholars when they talk about what concerns you,

00:55:32--> 00:55:38

they made a point to mention those categories. Because some things you may think concern and they really don't.

00:55:40--> 00:56:08

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 movement in California. We like the building, it should bother Obama, we reinforce one another.

00:56:10--> 00:56:25

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

00:56:26--> 00:56:28

know, say, Allah tm LA.

00:56:29--> 00:56:39

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.

00:56:40--> 00:56:55

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 of Los Alamos best.

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

The point is that

00:56:59--> 00:57:17

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.

00:57:19--> 00:57:24

We may be I'm saying as individual Muslims, you may be concerned about

00:57:25--> 00:57:32

what happens in a particular place or this sports star injuring himself or something like that, you may be concerned with that.

00:57:34--> 00:57:55

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 identified with CNN 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 blesses

00:57:56--> 00:58:14

that many of us are cheated out of the profit is like what Sam said, and that is free time and your health. It is no excuses from a lolly Gani, there are too many Muslims. When you ask them why they stay is the way it is. They say because they don't have enough time.

00:58:16--> 00:58:23

In this Hadith, the prophet Alayhi Salam is teaching us to prioritize, not that you don't have enough time, you're a bad time manager.

00:58:24--> 00:58:31

You haven't managed your time properly because you have not prioritized properly.

00:58:32--> 00:58:39

And once you put things in perspective, what is it that really should concern me as a Muslim? And what should it

00:58:40--> 00:58:51

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.

00:58:52--> 00:58:55

You cannot recite Fatiha properly that should concern

00:58:57--> 00:59:05

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.

00:59:06--> 00:59:53

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 Ramadan. 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. Hello Adam Salatu was Salam robotic and then
