Now we're gonna be learning
bad today, which is the first of June 2018, corresponding to the 16th of Ramadan 1439. We're going to start the night chapter, he never told him but before starting that, we're going to move on to another draft. And as many of you heard today in the software, the, the man was encouraging us to pick up our pace to push a little harder, because they are as a loss of data cause them to grind. And again, imagine that they're just a limited number of days. And as I mentioned, this is the 16th of Ramadan Tuesday night will begin the last 10 nights Friday, so we only have a few more nights. And then we're going to be seeking out later to cover searching for loss of human data and hoping
for lots of handling Tyler's mercy.
And so it's critical when doing that that we also are keeping our tongues wet with the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada
you know, the Hadith of the man who came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he said to him, that the Sharia of Islam are many, many there's so much to do. I'm not sure whether I should be doing this or Then give me something that is comprehensive, something that I can do that will gain a loss of handle Tyler's pleasure. So the profits are low it was Southern Sunday is he Seneca rocks, man basically land, legit town stay moist at all times with the remembrance of a loss.
And so this is just something to keep in mind as you are going from place to place as you go from the masjid back to your hotel, for example, you should be saying some kind of like hungry lamb lay like a low low Aqua, at least the least that is going to do is that it's going to keep your tongue busy with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala even if it's not really coming from your heart, and I'll get to that in a point in a minute, Mashallah.
What you won't be doing as you're saying to panelo in Hungary, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, you won't be cursing at anybody, you won't be saying anything that's vulgar, you won't be saying anything that's displeasing to Allah subhana wa tada and the tongue will be moving with the last pantallas remembrance and inshallah Tada. At some point, your heart will also be engaged, because many times, and it can work both ways. Sometimes the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in your heart, is what propels the tongue to speak. And sometimes it is the tongue which is reminding the heart then the point is to always have a loss of power to Allah, especially in these virtuous times.
And these virtuous time you want to prepare now you want to practice now, because what can happen
is that if a lion soldier blesses us when we ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless us to witness later tell cousin, allies or job blesses us to witness that night, be in the lab, we want to take advantage of every second of that night. We don't want any time to go by, except that we're in the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah, we're praying, we're making dry, we're giving charity and while you're giving charity, you can still be saying Subhana Allah hum de la la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar and read about the meanings because these statements is the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam said that these four statements are the most beloved statements to allow some kind of what's added.
However, they carry a lot of meaning in them to the point that just on Alhamdulillah alone, an entire doctoral dissertation was written just on 111. And so it's important that we understand the meanings also of of Alhamdulillah Hannah law, like the law and the law as well. So what we're going to do is as has been our practice in sha Allah, is move on to another da
we finished yesterday, a comprehensive that was reported by Sahih Muslim or the authority of evolution of the alota annual that comprehensive do I was the Prophet I didn't select to Sudan, asking the Lord to rectify for him his Deen his dunya and his hereafter and to make this life an increase in all that is good and to make death a relief for him from all
That is, that is evil. Today's honey is collected in both Sahih Bukhari and Muslim today's drama is collected in both soluble heart a Muslim. And it was based on a request from the best of all human beings after the NBN. And the most silly, and his name was one
of obok recipient of the low tide annual.
He went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, teach me a dua that I can say in my select, teach me and do I, that I can say in my salon. So do I, that you say in salon is two places that you would be able to say it? Are you going to say it and pm after effects you have? For example? No, you're going to say in a report, this particular draw, I know if it's a general, there's two main places that you would make, one is in sujood, and the other is, after a Tisha hood, and send the salatu salam upon the Prophet is allowed to stand but before the test Li before the test, so I have a bucket of the Allahu China and Russia, of Allah, teach me
that I can say in my salon,
and this guy is, is amazing. And the fact that the Prophet I didn't select will select whatever bucket as deep as it did. The city idea of this woman, the one who has severe as we know, is, is beyond truthful. It is a person who, in truth here doesn't just mean what you say off your tongue. It means that you are true to something acidic is one was true to a lot what's at all right. So here he teaches a city to say
Allahumma inni vollem to nuptse.
Don't men kathira Allahumma inni volumn to Neff See, lol men, Kathy,
Oh Allah, I have wronged myself, abundantly, Sudan. This is
I have wronged myself, abundantly, a lot. And not just that I have committed a few sins here and there, like a lot of us we look at, we look at our sins like that. But he has to be left as some of the Sahaba said of him a symbol of the law of China and on other than that, he said the believer looks at his sins like a mountain on his back and its burdens. Whereas the hypocrite looks at his sins, like a fly lands on his nose, and he just brushes it away. And a lot of us treat our sins like that with the other dilemma last minute data protect us and save us from the fact hypocrisy. So he says, I have wronged myself greatly.
Well, a young few number 11. And no one forgive sins, except you. No one forgive sins except you. I have these sins. Oh Allah, I have wronged myself, I've transgressed against my own soul.
And is no one I could turn to. Except for you. Because nobody forgives those sins except for you.
For Philly mug for 10 minutes. So forgive me
a forgiveness that comes from you. And I will explain all of these terms and shall
fulfill the mouthfeel of him in anything. That's number one. So forgive me a forgiveness that comes from you.
What harmony and that's number two, that's the second that he's making or the second request that he has. So he's asking for forgiveness. And he's asking for for mercy.
fulfill the man Pharaoh champion in the war honey
in the canta aloha Rahim. Indeed you are over for your the off forgiving. And you are on Rahim. You are the merciful. Alright, so I want to I want you to as the Prophet somebody was telling me taught this to to every bucket. If every bucket is saying I have wronged myself greatly.
Then anybody after ever work at a city has wronged themselves more than he has wronged himself.
So take this hobby to heart and memorize it and memorize and that's what we're going to try to do right now. We want to take it step by step and hopefully not just memorize it, but internalize the meanings of this. So every bucket is empty for the alongside angle.
is saying now Allahumma inni Valentina FC Allahumma which means Oh Allah. Now in the sooner you'll find that the majority the overwhelming majority of black and as soon as start out with a lot of them, the overwhelming majority of derived from the Quran starts with what? rugby, rugby
and there's a
both of them, both of them obviously is calling upon the last time the NBA in general will call upon Allah Subhana Allah as
you know why?
What's the difference between a robber and he as a name and Allah as a name? If we look at it from an aspect of Metohija, and you look at a large xojo as being your rugby, he is your nurturer so Hannah for what's added, and those who are directly receiving revelation from a loss of habitat and the prophets, it says if they're being nurtured directly by Allah
because their instruction the same way we receive instruction from our parents when we're young and they tell us what to do and what not to do.
The MBI and the messengers are receiving instruction directly from Allah subhana wa Tada. So the same way you because you can call your parents or your mother have been robbed by any Sophia, right? As they have nurtured me when I was young, so we use that same word, or rough, Tara Ba, okay, so here as they're calling upon Allah tada as an upbeat and love but it's because they are recognizing and witnessing a las pantallas nurturing of them that direct nurturing through revelation.
And obviously allows me to add, it's not just the love of the NBA and the muesli, but that relationship is different than it is with the rest of the creation. Whereas when we say Allahu Allah, we are recognizing Allah subhanho wa Taala as the one who deserves our worship as a man to be happy, so we will learn right he is the true deity. And so by calling upon him as Allahumma we are showing our servitude to him subhana wa tada into him alone. And that's important to think about because when you say Allahumma that is a you are declaring your innocence of calling upon anyone else besides him subhana wa tada and you are showing that your heart is attached to an Elan Alright.
in need to know see a need for them to know see. So here he is saying that he has done volume to himself and roll in the Arabic language means to put something in a place that it does not belong. Okay, so we would normally translate that as injustice. Because once when you do injustice to something, right, you are doing what does not deserve to be done. So, again, if we take it back to the Arabic language, so that we understand here 1000 words to shake freewriting Moby, it's to put something where it doesn't belong. What is the secret behind calling sins? Then?
What is the secret behind calling since volume and volume? Obviously is of different types. Okay, so look man said to his son in the sugar lagoon having an t shirt is the greatest form of goal right? So I have wronged myself, I have done wrong to myself. Why Why do we call sins
Okay, so so the fifth law is to be sinless, okay, we've created sins.
because you've done injustice to yourself, but the answer is this and ultimately to animals best. It's because every sin is you taking a net amount of blessing from a loss mentality and putting it where it does not belong.
So if you think about this name, any sin that you can think of
even right Allah, okay, backbiting Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with the tongue with the ability to speak. He's blessed you with it. There are people who cannot talk.
Eliza gel has blessed you with that ability. If you now take that ability and you use it to defame another Muslim or two
Talk about his honor, then now you are putting it in a place you are using it in a manner that shouldn't that it should not be used for. And that's why it is done. It's injustice. A person who commits fornication or adultery is putting something where it doesn't belong clearly. So these are, this is a boo in ni vollum two, Nef si vous manca viola, I have, I have wronged myself greatly. And this part here of the Hadith. And again, and this is important as well, when we when we talk about these two eyes, these two either that we make have to come from the heart, it can't just be something you say with your tongue. Because now you're doing what you're asking Allah subhanho wa
Taala for something. And so here we haven't asked a lot for anything yet. But we're setting up the AES, if you will, when you stand in front of us, fantastic, you can't be arrogant. You can't stand in front of a lizer which is if you're sinless, and you don't need his help. You have to stand in front of a lot of broken humble and so when you say in nice Valentina Singh, Dolman Kathy Allah now you are recognizing you're openly declaring the fact that you are sinful in front of him subhana wa tada and that you recognize your own faults. And everybody has faults and they vary from person to person. Like, he then says, in Netherlands enough season 150 euro, while a young few loose ends, and
no one forgive since except for you, and no one could give since except for you. And here we should remember what Allah Subhana Allah says about the subpoena and before and
because Eliza Joe, when describing the people of tough one we're striving to be from amongst them, especially in this month. The objective of our fasting is to attain tough one not pleasing of Allah Subhana which Allah, Allah azza wa jal when describing the people of taqwa says about them or Latina either.
Oh la, la mu and fusa home, that oh la, la.
Neither movie him woman, young few Luba in LA LA.
Salam, O, Allah says in those who when they do a shameful act,
a lot of who and whose home or they have done some injustice to themselves, that a lot. They remember Allah and because of their remembrance of Allah, they seek forgiveness for their sins. And then Allah says, oh, who was it that forgive sins except for Allah, and then they do not continue in their oppression. They don't continue in their sinning, knowingly, continuing committing that sin. So, here Allah Subhana Dada is teaching us that even the people of taqwa are going to fall short. But that they when they fall short, and they recognize that they fallen short, they seek the last panel silence forgiveness.
They singled him out and seeking for forgiveness so they don't go to anyone else. They go directly to a lost parent and there is no why supply there is no inter mediary between them, and a loss of Hannah Montana and they don't persist in that sin knowingly pipe. So every bucket is a deep was taught to say along the in the volume to nuptse the mentality of Allah I have wronged myself greatly while I am.
And there is no one that forgives sins except for you. He then goes on to say phone fieldly filming so forgive me. Forgive me. What does it mean when you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for monk feeling?
We Yeah, we translate that as forgive okay. But to the root of a mosquito is from lafora which means to cover something okay. And that is that is why a helmet that is worn is called a mikvah. Right. But from the same group because it does what it covers your head, and it protects your head. So when you are asking for mcphedran you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to cover your faults and to protect you from the consequences of your sense. That's actually what it means when you're when you're saying from feeling.
Again, it means to want to cover that phone and other words
don't expose it,
and to save you from the or protect you from the consequences of those sins, because sins have consequences, and even a loss hands on as though he forgave Adam and Eve, what happened there was a consequence to that sin, even though he forgave them, and that consequence was that they were removed from agenda. And so when you're when you're asking for mcfeely, this is what you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for to cover that sin and to protect you from the evil consequences of that sin. And here he says, MK Philo, 10 minute photo feeling mug for 10 minutes and then a forgiveness that comes from you.
And the scholars of Hadith have said that this is to emphasize a point. And that is that you have done nothing to deserve that forgiveness. It comes directly from Allah stands out and not because of something that you've done, not because you've done deeds that will expiate those sins or you've done something directly to try to expiate for the sin that you have. No, that this month fear comes directly from Allah subhanaw taala without any type of initiation from yourself.
So for fieldly macura Chairman entity, that in other words, this is coming directly from Allah subhanaw taala without anything that you have done to to perhaps earn it or deserve it if those terms can even be used.
So that's the first thing you asked me the last countdown before it is to forgive you and then you say, Honey 100 and have mercy upon me.
And and this is the ultimate success. Allah subhana wa tada says in the Koran couldn't have seen the equal tournament like that every soul shall take step in that same scene from an Xu Zhi Hua and in so whoever is one drawn away z, and he's drawn away from the fire that's fulfilling mafia Chairman in Forgive me, do what saved me from the consequences of my sins which would normally be what the fire saved me from that from an zeusie her and now and what what is halal agenda and is entered into paradise what honey, and have mercy upon me, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, none of you is going to enter Paradise, his compensation for his actions. They said not even you almost as a villa,
he said, not even me, in light of a mother in law.
unless Allah to Allah encompasses me With what? Because Merci. You're asking the last kind of exotic for his mercy. It's like you're asking him to enter you into paradise. See her and enough. Whoever is saved from the fire will Jenna and is entered into paradise facts. He is triumphant. He's won. He's won this whole race of life. He won.
And so when you're asking the last fantana, for MacGuffin, and you're asking him for a Rama, you're asking him to be triumphant. You're asking him to save you from the fire and to enter you into paradise in the presence of local or when you are over food, and you are overheats over time, so this do I which is again collected by a party Muslim is a tremendous drag. And we should be using this time of Ramadan. You know, as I was saying that though, I could see many of you saying
meaning that you probably already know it, you've heard it, it's now a time to put it into practice. Don't let us a lot go by if you have the ability, except that you put this in your salon.
And you don't it's not just for salon you can say it outside of outside of salon. But this is where everyone can on the low tide and who was looking for something that he could be taught by the private supplier someone to say in his salon. So if you say it in your salon Institute, and again, you know, many times if you're praying behind the men, you may not have the opportunity to say some of the things that you want to say. Take the opportunity as you're praying as soon as you're praying when you enter into the message. Take the opportunity to incorporate these two eyes in your salon and Allah subhana wa tada knows quests like
fight, repeat the whole die in one go. Like a lot of them and talk be
Illa Illa and Halekulani. namsa I went to a different doctor.
I love them to enough see Dolman kathira well if you know Bella and fulfill the mouthfeel a German ended what harmony in nikka enter before arriving
In English, it's a law I have wronged myself greatly. And there's none that forgive sins except for you. So forgive me a forgiveness that comes from you and have mercy upon me and be You are the offer giving the armors
like today inshallah tada we're going to cover chapter nine, which deals with a very important topic, and that is the topic of a typical book that is seeking Baraka, seeking Baraka. Before moving on to that, we just want to recap what we talked about yesterday, yesterday, we talked about Rokia,
which is very important in the life of a Muslim. And we talked about amulets, that is the things that many people may wear around their necks or any type of chart that a person may use. Sometimes people put it hang it in on their cars, sometimes people hang it on their animals as a means of bringing about good fortune, or repelling evil.
As for Rukia, we mentioned that there's two main types that which has been legislated by loss of Hannah Montana, and that which is not legislated. The type of rookie that is legislated by Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is sanctioned in Islam fulfills three conditions. Number one is that it is either from the Quran, from the the Prophet, it is salatu salam from his speech. Number two, that it isn't the Arabic language or a language that is understood clearly. And number three, that the Iraqi are the one who is performing the Rokia
recognizes that the harm and benefit come from Allah subhanho wa Taala not directly from the Rukia itself. And the prophets of light he was someone used to do Rukia on himself every night, as we know by reciting hula hula go ahead and be the teeny fool out in front of Venus, and then spindling in his hands and wiping that over his body. I do this a lot with Salim, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam also performed Rokia for some of his family like he would do for Hassan and Hussein. And it shall the alongside and perform Rukia on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as a rookie that is other than that, people making up, you know different incantations, and, you know, magic spells and these
types of things like this. And this is unacceptable in its name, and it is a form of *, sometimes major and sometimes mine, as for amulets, as for amulets, then, if it is not from the Quran, it's not from the speech of Allah subhana wa tada that there is consensus amongst the scholars that it is not permissible as for amulets that are from the Quran, then the scholars, the early scholars that was saying, this is a habit themselves different about the permissibility. And we mentioned yesterday that it is better for a person to avoid any type of eminent.
Now, today, we're going to cover the chapter of a typical
chapter number 933, a stone or the light among the most exalted, said, Have you considered that?
And the third of them fight. So let's start with the chapter heading which is at Tilburg, yes, all of you now living in these days of Ramadan, or doing something before fudger what are you doing before fudger
you're eating, you're eating, and the prophets of Allah who either you will tell him said, Teresa, how to
eat the Soho meal for in the fisu hoity toity Baraka because in Suho, or a sack or both of them are correct. So what is the act of eating sack or is what you're eating? It's called a soul that meal that is that you're eating. The Act itself is called silver like Voodoo. And we'll do right Voodoo is the act of performing ritual purification whereas wobbu is the water that you use to perform that act of ritual purification. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to Sahara will eat that Soho meal, he at the time of sahab and a sangha refers to the time period that is right before. So and 4550 minutes before budget
That time is called a Sahaba. That's an important time for a believer. There's a loss of Hannah Montana when talking about the people of taqwa. He says, one must stop feeding a bill as half. Those who seek allows forgiveness at the time of support.
And I'm going to remind you, because all of you are up now, eating at the time of support, say, a stop for lunch, stop for lunch, stop for lunch, say it frequently, you're at that half hour time period, don't just sit there and do nothing to just feed your face.
Say you're stuck for too long. Because this is from the qualities This is from the characteristics of the metalcon. And we're striving to be from amongst them, especially in this model.
And so at that time, you want to be saying and stuff with a lot of You're the one preparing the meal for the family. Yeah, which which a lot of times this is sisters, say stuff with the law as you're cooking, keep your tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala seek His forgiveness, try to make that in practice, so that even outside of the month of Ramadan, that this becomes a habit that you develop, shall not die. So the prophets will live with some sets eat that meal at the time of Assad.
Because there is Baraka in the fish reloading Baraka, because there is Baraka in that meal. Okay? What does the word Baraka mean? Because we're not gonna understand this chapter, which is seeking blessings, until we understand what is or seeking Baraka until we understand what is Baraka. So, what is Baraka? Baraka, it means capital a total fail, it would have to go to Haiti, whether it means that the good is sustained, and it's growing. So sustaining to us, I guess that's economic terms, right? sustainability and growth, right? So something needs to be both sustained, it's good needs to be constant, and it needs to grow. If, if that's the case, then it is called, then it has
Baraka as well. Okay.
All right. So, and we'll talk about this, you know, in legislative terms in Java, but if we look at the Soho meal, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that it has Baraka,
which means that it has a lot of good, and that the good grows. Okay, so we could use just layman's terms, we will probably say, getting out of something more than you expect that spark that you get out of something more than you would expect to get. So it has good and you're getting even more than what you would expect to get from fine. Is that the case? We'll do some more, we'll have some Absolutely, absolutely. And have the land many of you are sitting here right now, you may be drained, you may need your coffee fix or whatever else it is, you may be feeling that.
But are you starving, like you would on a normal day, if you weren't fasting, and you only eight, whatever it is that you ate for support today, and you only ate that
on a normal day by lunchtime. You feel you know, like you had to stop doing whatever it is that you're doing because I have to get something to eat.
And then none of us insha Allah none of us feel that way. Because there's barakin so
there is Baraka in there. And I don't think that the Baraka stops, there is a lot of other good that comes from the savoury meal, just the fact that you are up at that time, that time when a lawsuit kind of what tada descends to the lowest heavens. And he says, Is there anyone seeking my forgiveness? so that I may forgive them? Is there anyone requesting for something so that I may granted? Just the fact that you're up at that time and you can say I stuck with a lot, ask Allah for forgiveness and ask him for it is whatever it is that you want.
The Baraka came from the fact that you wanted to get up anyway to eat soy, you have this thing. So so
the meal you look at it, it may be something very small, maybe even seem to be insignificant, but the water that you drink them and the food that you take in, it sustains you throughout the day, and there's Baraka in it as our Prophet it is delightful as Sam said.
So, this is Baraka so that we understand the concept. Understanding the concept of Baraka, it means what that is something is good is a constant good from and that it increases and it's good. In other words, you get more out of it than than what you expect.
Now, when we look at Baraka from a, an Islamic legal perspective, if you will,
there are many things in which Allah subhana wa tada puts Baraka.
there are times in which the last minute and puts Baraka, many of you know any of those times
Laila to cutter, right, Laila tell cut it is one night, but because Allah Subhana Allah has put Baraka in that night, it is better and superior than worshiping Allah in 1000 months 80 plus 83 plus years, okay?
Because there's Baraka that has been put in our Prophet it is salatu salam also said, booty Katyn Mattoon, FIBA who already had that this oma has been blessed in the early hours of its day.
Any of you living in Saudi for any period of time you're here this book, Raj Sharma cucaracha. Tomorrow inshallah, because nobody likes to do anything for you on the spot, right. So he tell you come back tomorrow, Booker is from that word buku, which is the early morning. All right. So this was blessed in the early morning. And that's an interesting concept that the early morning has blessing. What is what does that mean? Exactly? It means that the two three hours that you would
use in the morning to do work may be equivalent to six hours in the rest of the day.
you've ever heard that statement we do more before nine o'clock than most people do in their entire day. It's that same concept that the early bird catches the worm. It's you go out, and you work hard early. I prophesied, some said that that time is a blessed time, meaning that the work that you get done during that time is blessed. This is why many of our machines
when asked what advice do you have for us and seeking knowledge. He told me that I remember this specifically.
Many years ago,
and they would say don't go to sleep after
that's the advice seeking knowledge. Don't go to sleep after busy yourself with seeking knowledge reciting the Quran making dua to Allah subhana wa Tada, pipe Seidman. So, booty cotton oma in terms of in terms of times in terms of places,
let me know any places that are that are blessed.
Sorry, out of
Safa, Marwah, okay, Mecca, the Kappa dimension of the prophet Isaiah select was sent in, these are blessed places. So, so now. So if you pray, for example, in the mission of the Prophet, it is what it is today,
you may perform the same exact salaat, the same way that you would perform anywhere else said that here is going to be multiplied 1000 times more than 1000 times except for a machine. And more than 1000 times the prayer and any other messages except for the machine. And so this place is Mubarak, quite a lot some kind of dad and is also blessed.
he blessed our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. And this is why the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they used to seek blessings with his person, his hair, his saliva, and otherwise, then the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was blessed.
And so Alonzo Joel puts blessing where he wills.
The important point here to recognize is that Allah azzawajal is the one who puts the blessing there. And the way that we know that that thing is blessed is how,
through revelation, Allah is the one that put it there. And he's the one that informs us that it is blessed. Otherwise, we wouldn't know. And we wouldn't see blessings from those things. And this is why China and
when he kissed the black stone and that famous heavy Muslim, he kissed the black stone, and then he said, in the Alamo, and the
lights don't go well at all in fact, so he gets the black stone. But then he said, I know that you are nothing but a stone. You don't bring any harm. You don't bring me any benefit. You can't cause me any harm. Well, oh, let me know.
Ah Rasul Allah He solo and he was sending him a huge hug, Beluga, maca, Belgian. And if it wasn't for the fact that I saw the Prophet sallallahu wasallam kissing you, I want to kiss you.
And we say the same thing. And why do we touch the Yemeni corner?
Because the prophets of alignments have informed us that touching the Gemini corner, remove since we kissed the mid corner
because the prophecy some didn't kiss the mid corner, he didn't instruct us to kiss the mid corner. What about the rookin, Shani, the two other pillars of al Qaeda, that we touch them now. You don't touch them. We don't wipe them. We don't wipe the curtains of the Kaaba. Because a lost paradigm is the one that puts Baraka where he wants to. And we were not informed that there's any Baba in there. So you see some people that are, you know, they strive to get a piece of the tablet curtains when you know, when they change the curtains or they want to take a curtain of the day and exactly what are you doing with it, you wiping it, you're getting some blessing from it.
Because blessing is only in what Allah Allah puts blessing. So similarly, similarly.
Some people come here to the message of the Prophet it is select with sin,
which is a blessed messenger.
But then they seek the blessing from the messenger in a manner that was not prescribed by the prophet alayhi salatu salam, or any of those who followed him and righteousness. So you may see some people now today, wiping on the doors as they walk out,
wiping on the doors and then wiping their face
wiping on the pillar of the messy and then wiping over the children.
What are they doing? That's called at above look
at above look to Baruch seeking Baraka, seeking Baraka. That's what tempo means. All right. So it's it's from Baraka. But the scale the verbal scale, that is one is it to five, okay, it's about rook. So it means to seek by. So So here, so far, we have two things. Number one, is that the only things that are blessed, that we know about are the things that are lost in our data has determined to be blessed. Those things that he has, where he places his blessing, where he wills, no time.
It's number one. Number two, the means in which we seek blessings,
at those places, during those times from those things, has to coincide with the way that it was done by our Prophet it is select to select, or his companions.
So, for example,
though it was not common practice, amongst the companions of the Prophet it is selected,
at least one of them or perhaps two of them,
used to wipe the mimbar of the Prophet it is somebody was saying
they used to wipe it for one for America.
And this was even Obama.
And others for most campaigns did not agree with him in Oman, or the low tide and women's practice, in the way that he would seek out the exact traces of the Prophet it is a lot to say, many of them did not agree with his practice. But the fact that he did it is a clear indication that it's not something that we can come later and say, is an innovation in this way.
Because they didn't say that it was an innovation is something that they didn't do, that they didn't particularly approve of. But the fact that he did it, while the Allahu tat anymore, is an indication that it can be done, except for this fact, except for the fact that he was doing it, seeking the blessing from where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself stood, where the Prophet sallallaahu Selim himself set,
once the mimbar of the prophet Isaiah salatu salam was, in fact, destroyed and rebuilt. And as the Scott, the scholars of later generations have mentioned, the sixth and seventh and eighth generations, that is no way now that you can see Baraka in that manner. Because there was nothing there that the Prophet I didn't realize was Sudan himself touched.
And so, that is under the assumption that the not only was the physical body of the Prophet it is Salatu was sent and blessed. but also those things that the promise of light is seldom touched or stay that we're also blessed. I hope that point is clear.
to Barack seeking
Blessings has to be done. Number one from those things only from those things or during those times or at those places that Ally's has designated as being blessed. And number two, and the manner in which our Prophet is select with Sudan, and his companions did so. So for example,
this question we said is blessed,
If a person now rolls around on the carpet of domestic
rolls around on the carpet, so what are you doing exactly? He says, I'm trying to give blessing all over my body, because this machine is blessed. Now my blessing all over my back. What will we say to him?
We will say expand. Because yes, this measure is blessed. But that's not the way that blessing is sought here. The way the blessing is on here is to pray prayer,
through perhaps sitting in the roller, and reading the Koran, or something like this, something that we have a clear example from those who preceded us to do
so we're going to go now we're going to read through the author says here, those who seek blessings from trees, from rocks, and the likes, trees and rocks, the likes, that he's going to bring us some examples from the or one eye. And one Hadeeth from the son of the Prophet I just saw just saying he reads
among the most exalted says, I read in Arabic And I need to translate it so so Allah Subhana Allah says, For our ATM or letter, one loser
woman at least until
and then a lot of data goes on either come with
what or who shall carry then this Mattoon. Please
go ahead translate. A lot of the most exalted said have you done considered a lot and a loser? And Munna the third of them? Okay, a lance, Allah Rosa aluminet. Five of one.
I think that it's particularly important for us to understand this, because it's in the Quran.
And the speech of Allah Subhana Allah was not revealed for us simply to recite it, but for us to want to understand it, and to reflect on it. And so by understanding a length Elisa elminate will understand the Quran better be in the land, john? All right.
So Allah says, Have you not considered
in these three, by the, by the way, their names of items, okay. And let is the feminine, feminine name that they took from a last paradigm. So they took the name, Allah,
or l ILA, and they made it feminine. And so they said, a lens. And this was the idol that was worshipped primarily Well, the Arabs in general worship these three items. But this was the idol that was specific to the tribe of the beef, which was the tribe in a life outside of Mecca. So many of you have been to Mecca, and I'm sure you have
about 70 kilometers away from from Mecca, is the city known as a pi. And the tribe that was prevalent there was Benny, for people to try and vote for Pete.
And so this was an actual statue
that was built and it had some inscriptions on it. It was a made of white stone.
And they named it a left.
And there's difference of opinion amongst the scholars about what it was named after some of them said that it was originally it was originally a grave.
It was the grave of a man that can you look to love him. He used to make this type of
paste, like a date paste, he would make for those who were performing hij. And again, we're not talking about the heights that we perform as Muslims. We're talking about the heights that was performed by the early Arabs, which was carried from the Dean of evil out here.
And so they said that this man was very popular amongst them.
And he used to make this type of date paste and when he died, they used to go to his grave
They would worship at that group. Eventually, a structure was erected there.
and this is what they used to worship. And they called it a lens. And
so that's the meaning of a left for our eight on one letter, while Roseanne and the reason is the feminine form of the name Ella Z's
And this was worshiped by Arabs that were closer to Mecca, this was the Polish used to worship looser
and looser was actually a tree. It was not a statue, it was a tree, alright, and aluminet
which is the feminine of allies of Adele's name, l mn n, mn n,
was worshipped by the tribes of Medina, and also in a husband.
And it was in a place close to a day on the coast, on the western coast, and
between Mecca and Medina,
between Mecca and Medina. And it was it was an idol that they used to worship. Right, like, so we have these three. And these were the three main idols of the heirs. And what did they used to do at these places, they would go there seeking blessings, they will go there, seeking their blessings, seeking that
good fortune come to them that they repel evil fortune that they get blessing by being close to, to these idols and statues that they were worshipping.
Then a lot of data goes on to say Anakin was the one
because the Arabs would then beyond the fact that they would worship these idols, they would say that these are the daughters of Allah.
That's why they gave them feminine names. Because they said that these are the daughters of Allah Subhana Allah.
So Allah tada says, Are you
are you the ones that have sons? Because what did the Arabs used to do to their doors?
Many they were not happy with daughters, not that they never kept their daughters. Some of them buried their daughters alive, but he hasn't been left. Right. But they particularly did not like their daughters.
And they degraded them. And they held them in low esteem.
And they loved their sons. And so last minute, it says, Ella comas Decker or you don't want to get to have sons, well, I will own that and he only gets to have daughters
ticket even pistol Mattoon, these, this is an unjust you know, manner of distribution.
So, Allah subhanaw taala. Here is rebuking them is rebuking them for their worship of these idols of their seeking Baraka from these idols, and this will become clear and shallow Tada. As we read the head, he
tells me he reported that I will leave and leave
a lady from the illawarra who said, we went out with our messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam. On the campaign trail for a while we had just left the disbelief, call for for Islam, the bush Sikkim had a Syndra a little tree, that they would stay there and hang their arms on calls that go on Well, when we pass a similar tree we said O Messenger of Allah, will you make for us another that Anwar just like they're unwell unless messenger says a lot of work, but by the one who holds my soul in his hand, barely these are the ways of earlier nations. You have said exactly as Benny israelian said to
make for us a God just as their gods. Certainly you will follow the ways of those who went before you. That fire this heavy which is collected by NAMM a tournament he or him all loads either on the authority of Evo while eating a lazy or the Allahu eye and ever wanted a lengthy according to many of the scholars who directly study the Sahaba and this is important to note, you all of you have heard of Ceylon what a sila
sera is the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and
As you know, many scholars have many as in hundreds have made, perhaps even more have written about the seal of the prophet Isaiah salatu salam and there are many works out there that cover the seal of the Prophet It is so much of
what what we may not be as aware of is that there are there are scholars who have dedicated many works many years of their lives to the study of the companions, or the Allahu tida animal. And from amongst the most important books that deal with the lives of the companions is an Saba by a half a dozen headjam, Alaska Lynn.
Bill Barr also has a very important book
that deals with the Sahaba. And right now, I can't think of the name of that book. Because if I'm not mistaken, but in any event, both Bob and Jill Have there been a hazard Alaska landing mentioned that this narrator ever while being a lazy that he accepted Islam during the Fed of Mecca. Okay, when was sprach comecon?
What year was fenichel method? Was it one year after the intrado 23495? I'll give you multiple choice 6789 which 1906 not six, okay, we got two left seven or eight, eight it was the eighth year after the hegemon that was as called in the books of coos call I'm will fetch the eighth year after the agents called the year of the Fed.
Okay, so and when was when was
When did it happen in which month? I'll give you a hint we're living in right now. Which one? Ramadan Okay, great. Mashallah, you got it. All right. No cheating my Salah for you. So, fetch Mecca, was during Ramadan. In the eighth year
after the heat. Like
this heading of work, it says college and Mr. Suitland somebody was sent him he left her name and we went out with the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam to name the Battle of name
also took place in the eighth year after the hitch.
In which month, a show while
the show while is the month one, right after Ramadan, the 10th month Ramadan is the ninth month. So how long were they Muslims? When I went with the Prophet, I'd like to send them to the battle for me about a month, approximately a month. Keep that in mind. As you're listening to this Howdy. It's very important to understand some of the circumstances of the Howdy. So he says we went out with the Prophet with the messenger will also live with some simple name. We'll never know who did that. Well, I didn't because and we had just left
he saying him as in literally just left cover came into his lap. He said it's a mystery food
had a tree
that they use to gather around Yeah, keep funa and dead. And I want you to pay attention to that word. Yeah, keep
it he can write it he can we said we use what Luma share. So you are sticking to something you are staying close to something. Right? So Yaki funa
around this tree, they would stay close to that tree, they would gather around it and they would spend extensive periods of time around this tree
and they would also hang their
their weapons on the tree. Okay, why were they hanging their weapons on the tree because they had this belief that this tree was blessed. And so by hanging their weapons on the tree, the tree the the weapon was going to get some kind of special power, it was going to be sharper than it would if they didn't.
It was going to help them be more accurate and battle than if they didn't hang it on that tree. You understand?
What's happening here, they're attributing
to something that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has given us no indication that he has made Mubarak that he has made it blessed. And even if a last minute data has given us that indication, we seek the blessing from it in a way that is legislated. So we know for example, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has described the knuckle the palm tree has been
How is it? No, but you get more from that tree than you would expect. Not that you go down and you hang your, your clothes on the tree and then so panela when you take your clothes back, they'll be cleaned like you put it in us at the cleaners, like you took it to the laundromat panel and look at the streets.
And though we may laugh at these examples, people do this. People look for blessing from other than what I lost my data for blessing, because we want to attach ourselves to something that we can touch that we can see that we can feel instead of and this is why last Rosada has as hammered home that point of tawheed so that our hearts are attached to Allah, even though we can't see him subhana wa tada
even though we can't feel him subhana wa tada we can see the effects of Allah fantana in our lives, we can know that Eliza gel has answered our glass
even though we cannot see him so Hannah was like so but because that is a common thread in the history of mankind, that they want to see a or they want to worship. What they believe or what they put out is a representation of a lost power. And that is how shirk begins. So it's not that they are not worshipping Allah is that they're worshipping Allah commands and other things along with their worship of allies we don't and no doubt that this is a form of worship to seek blessings
so they would hang here they would hang their weapons on this tree and the name of this tree was Dan to and what that and what
so everyone else he didn't says so we also went by a low tree similar to the tree that they had. And so we said O Messenger of Allah
Why don't you make for us
a bat and wow just like they have one make for us one two.
That way we can go ahead we can hang our our you know, weapons on and a lot more powerful than their gods anyway, and our tree is gonna be more powerful. It's gonna give us more blessings. Right?
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah
and this is the narration of email in the narration as soon as he says to Pamela, Pamela,
what do we mean when we say some Hana lump that a love is above any imperfections? And so the problem is I put a lot both allow adequate answer panela were used by the prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Arabs in general to express
surprise, you know, with the statement that was being made.
You know that Hadees were Abu Bakr radi Allahu tida annual asked another companion in handler, he said How are you handled and how how's everything and handleless it naff a handler handler has become a more natural
and everybody has said a little echo
and some narration that had been done he was surprised what do you What's that? What's going on? And the rest of the Hadith of the Prophet till they went to the Prophet I sent him he said sides emphasized that it was time for this from time to time. So here the problem is it sounds a lot like one in this sonnet.
Indeed, it is as soon as soon then is the plural of sonet which means the way a path, Danny, it is the path that has been followed by those people who came before you they did the same thing. The province alight and someone said to me, let enough CV Eddie Kramer call it vandalism anymore. So you have said by the one who's handline solace, you said just like Benny is about et cetera Muslim. What did they say to Moosa? They said as a lot of metadata mentions of Bronze Age Adelina Lohan, Kamala home and make for us a God just like they have guys who is day
that the people up that people love
just like they have Gods make for us. Make for us a God
make for us again.
color. Commentator hulusi said to them you are people who are ignorance
are and then the prophets Elia. Someone said that's how to kabuna synonym and kana couple of them you indeed will follow the way of those who came before you and this has been this part of the Habibi will follow the way of those who came before you is in another color is in another heading as well which will
We covered in approximately
10 to 15 chapters after this chapter. So our point here is what the point or the part of this heading, which is directly related, related to the chapter that we are covering, is that what that they sought blessing
from this tree.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that that is similar
to what the people of
Israel did, when they said, make for us a god. So whenever worth in the lead the, and those people who were new to this man said, make for us a tree make for us and then to unmount, just like they have that to unlock, the promise of life was selling, clarifying that this is a form of ship, that this is a form of ship, it's like asking for another god, why. And this goes back to something that we've covered extensively.
Because, as we've mentioned before, Allah is the one who is the creator of what causes and effects.
And if he puts Baraka in something, and then we seek Baraka from that thing, then that is correct, we have followed that proper cause and effect relationship, even though it may be something that is not clear from a, a natural perspective, if you will, from a material perspective, from a material perspective, what is the difference between praying in a message, and praying and messenger with men do you know, nothing.
But Allah Subhana, Allah made this place, blessed. And so we seek that kind of blessing from Allah subhanaw taala, because he has made it that way. And so there's a cause and effect relationship there.
That is, that we receive through by way of Revelation. And we know that that blessing can only come from who from Allah subhanaw taala, there's no one else that can put blessing in something.
The minute that we come now and say that this tree, for example, is blessed. But we don't have any revelation to indicate that we have anything, there's nothing that a last minute data has revealed in the brine on the tongue of his prophet I didn't realize was him as soon as that indicates that that thing is blessed that now we are attributing blessing to someone other than a loss of hand, which is because if allies didn't put the blessing in it, then where did the blessing come? You understand. And so this is why it is considered to be a form of shooting.
It's why it's considered to be a form of shooting. And if people call upon these other things, besides Allah subhana wa tada than that, do I take them outside of the folder with slack? Because do I has to be is the do i is the worship and worship has to be for Allah subhana wa tada alone. And this is why so this becomes important because I see that many of
the people in our alma mater behind me that is selective celeb,
have been afflicted with this type of worship, or veneration venerating saints.
And so panela if you were to ask them, well, what is the evidence
that you know,
that your shape, for example, is blessed? Or why would you seek blessings from your second you can see from Panama, and he, they even put some of this stuff on social media, and they put it on the internet, where you will see them wiping their sheet
and then wiping over their face for blessing.
asking their shade to spit on them.
I've seen it with my own eyes, asking patients to spit on
for blessing. And if you ask them, where do you get this from? They say they use all they say it's available in Islam is permissible.
As the same way that the campaign is used to do
with the Prophet is salatu salam we do with our ship, Panama, Panama, or perhaps they may even claim that their chef has a piece of hair
of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And so when he puts that hair in his mouth, and he spits that it's actually spitting out, you know, blessing from the hair of the Prophet I didn't so that was sent him or something along these lines. And the point is
that none of this, if we look back, yes, the companions of the messenger Allah Salatu was Salam did see lesson through his person and even after his death through some of that which remain from him solo, it was something like his hair
Okay, that is established. But today, does that still exist? How do you know that that is in fact the hair of the Prophet it is selected
is no solid evidence for any of them?
Well Allah knows best, but the point is, that there is no authentic means of verifying that any of this is from the Prophet it is not the same. So the point is, that we should seek Baraka, we should seek lesson from that in which allows for cansada has informed us as blessing the Quran is blessed. He tap one is a narrow Baba for is blessed. So we should seek blessings when reading the Quran. The Quran is gives us both Dini lessons, if you will religious blessing in the fact that for every letter you recite,
you get Ashleigh Hassan s you get 10 more for every single letter of the Quran, and the fact that it is a cure.
The Quran is a cure. And so that is a blessing that is related to your worldly affix tight. Samson
was blessed with a lot of times that any of you break fast here in the in the in the heart of
that water that you are drinking the Samson, I'll just drink it because you're thirsty, drink it and seek the blessing from zanza.
The Prophet It is so nice to see them said Zamzam dimensionally but Samson was for whatever you drink it for some of the the righteous scholars of the parents, the early scholars, it was named the Tabby ignore. And even before the campaigns used to drink Sam's, I would make the latter. But this specific guy, I remember from some of the taffy that they would make, do I went drinking Sam Sam, oh, Allah allowed us to quench my thirst on Yama, pm. And he things like this. Have you ever been hijacked
by him or her to add? He mentions a story about himself. And we don't have him and he was the runner will fetch and bury, right? The most famous commentary of sample heart.
And his memory was amazing. He used to make the guy you mentioned about him so that he used to make when drinking sands and that Allah subhana wa tada would bless him with the memory of eliminating the heavy
by him Obama who preceded him by about 100 years. Okay, and they have he was the one who wrote a famous book called Sierra 11 novella, and some other famous books scholar Heidi, with a very strong memory as well. And then he said after that,
after he felt like he surpassed the heaven, and the ability to memorize and his knowledge, he said and then I learned to end the problem law he was here. And then I knew after then, that the bounties of illustrative data are endless.
And in other words, he felt like he surpassed it that had been and that he was he was low balling. When he was asking the Lord to give him the memory.
And that's true too. For a lot of us we we shortchange ourselves when asked for the loss of habitat, and that's why it's so important to memorize prophetic because if you memorize the draft of the prophet Isaiah salatu salam, you'll be making the best lies that are possible. We should be seeking blessing in this message of the prophet Isaiah select with Sudan by praying it as much as possible. We should seek blessing in our proximity to Mecca by going to Mecca and praying that the cabinet
in the overlap between moody and in this legendary marketer MOBA I can just my dad called the house in Mecca, Mubarak, the first house that was established for the worship of the last fantana in Mecca, and it is robotic, it is a last trance out has put blood on it. So, the point is the point of this chapter is that it is tohave when we seek Baraka from Allah subhana wa tada alone, and to seek Baraka from other than Allah subhana wa tada and from other than that, which a loss of habitat is pleased to Baraka in is to
do what divert an act of obedience to other than Allah subhana wa tada and that is the textbook definition of a shoo in Allah subhana wa tada knows best Salah was hella robotic. And then Amina Mohammed like any
Questions? Yeah, problem. I want to take the questions from Yeah, father.
hamdulillah five, sort of the brother says that in his particular locality, that there are people who have built tombs over the graves, righteous people.
And sometimes they may even build a mess over the tomb over the grave, and they worship there. And he said that they specifically or that they actually may do it directly to the one who was deceased, the one who was in the grave,
they make prostrate directly to the grave, not that they are asking Allah Subhana Allah at that place, or not, that they are asking them to ask Allah subhana wa Tada, which is also a form of ship, but that they are directly asking the one who was deceased, that one who was deceased.
So last minute, I said, Brian, you're calling upon those who do not hear you're glad.
They don't hear you. And because they don't hear you. It's impossible for them to do what to answer those prayers that you are directing. to them. A point that was made in the question, and then I'll get on to the answer, inshallah,
is that he said, they do it just like you describe
what was done with a left in five. And that was the whole point that the author was bringing, by mentioning this AI is that we find many of us doing the same things that the people used to do before. The prophet Isaiah select was Sudan, Kane, and taught them as well. Much of what is being done today mimics the idolatry that was done by the Muslim before the Prophet sallahu was summer king. The only difference is this.
The people that are doing it today say that they are Muslims. And the people and by extension, say that we are people have told me
and the people who did it before, witness themselves that they were idolaters, they didn't say that they were people have to eat, the act is the same. The difference is the people who are doing it and their beliefs about themselves. And so the question is a very good question.
And that is, how do we educate them? Is that the mo Hi, Ron, for that question. How to relax, didn't ask, what's the ruling? Are they emotionally cool? Should we go around telling them you're committing shift? because the idea is that we believe in general, we have good thoughts about Muslims, people that say that they are Muslim. They really want to draw closer to a loss of habitat. They want to be worshipers of Allah subhana wa Tada. They want to submit to the charity out of Islam. They want to do they want to follow the teachings of the Prophet I need to select Priscilla. The problem is they've been mis educated. They've been taught wrong. They've inherited certain
practices, from perhaps their forefathers, from their teachers, or whatever. Whoever may have taught them to do that. Perhaps it is something that is tribal, which is very common. We're all from one family. This is the way our family has done things for the last 300 years, don't you come try to change me.
And so the process of education is important. And as we know our Prophet is about to sit in. When he called his people to add to him when he called them to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala alone. He didn't come to them as an outsider. He was someone known to them. He was known as what before he even began to be before he received the message from a loss of power to him. Before he was sent as a property he was me. And because he was trustworthy, they use the key they use him as the bank, the safe
house, they put their things that they entrusted, they left them with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, because they knew that he was trustworthy.
And so when he called
His people. It wasn't number one, as a last fanzine, it says, as the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA name said Matt can be shaken in less than that gentleness is not putting put in anything except that it beautifies that thing. And so we see that the call of the Prophet is that it was sent in for his, for his people to call to his people was a very gentle call. But it was firm, in the sense that he didn't waver in the fact that allies to a job deserves to be worshipped alone, he is your Creator, he is your sustainer. He is the one who manage the affairs of this universe.
And he is the one that deserves to be worshipped alone, the message of the prophet SAW the setup was crystal clear. But he was also gentle in that message, he also genuinely wanted good for his people. And so when we talk about how to educate these people, we're loving the path is clear.
If we know the Tafseer of any of these verses, we will see that much of what these people are doing, mimics exactly what the idolaters did at the time of the prophet Isaiah, select two settings. So it is as simple as this, to be gentle. To let them know, let's sit down, let's read the Quran together, let's go over some of these items. And of course, we don't have enough time to or perhaps maybe tomorrow, we can start the lesson with some of those is that you can just take them to interpret and let them read certain I had the the will just stick with Bukhari and Muslim that way, you don't have to worry about it. So hey, it's nice.
And show them step by step that this act of worshipping graves
is, in fact exactly what I have done throughout history. From the time of Newark, I think it's so much was Sam, when they began that practice of worshipping grapes.
and showed them with gentleness with kindness with each other. If you are genuine and wanting good for them, I believe that every person can feel that from another person. They feel that energy that comes from you that I sincerely want good for you. And that it begins the process of education, a lot of times where we go wrong, a lot of times where we go wrong, is we want 100 people to change in a day and a night. They've been doing this thing for generations. And now Allah Subhana Allah has shown us the truth, he's guided us. And now we want everybody to be guided even though your guidance was a process in and of itself. We want everybody to be guided in a day to night, know this is
shared your worship with others other than a law, don't you see what the law says in the Koran, they can't hear what you're saying. They all they see is your mouth moving? What you're saying they can't even hear because of the approach. And so a lot of times, especially for non religious figures, what I mean is that if you're not the Imam of the masjid, you're not the teacher, you're not the one in charge, you're responsible, your effort has to be a more individualized effort. And you'll see the success of it in the lay time. Because if you guide one person by your hands, as a promise of light, it was sort of safe haven, let them in harmony, nothing is better for you than the red camels
meaning the most expensive, the most beneficial commodity that exists, it's better for you than that to guide one person, but by you guiding that one person, that one person be in the lanes, it won't stop. They're going to recognize when they see that light. And the last one is out it shows them and they get to see some hand alone, this is what I was doing. And now they see other members of their family also doing the same thing, then they will work towards that. And so through that individual effort is the length of time that you will see a people change our problem many times is that we expect change too quickly. And we're not willing to make the effort the same effort that our profit
is aligned through. So they made it
he was dealing with what he was dealing with I doubt correct. The prophets of light was something he had something directly from a loss of habitat. And that's revelation. We don't have that direct revelation, we have the Koran we'll come to that but we're not getting it directly from Allah. And even with that, how many people accepted Islam in the first three years of the prophet Isaiah select the same column A
very few, very few. And even after six years, 10 years of the prophecies, we still didn't have but a few 100 who had accepted Islam amongst 1000s in the process of life with someone was called and so we have to be patient. We have to be patient in that call. No and persistent knowing
At nighttime if that first one doesn't respond, maybe the second one will and the second one will maybe the second one doesn't maybe the 10th. One will, but that our duty is to do one to continue our efforts to continue in those areas. I must have done them as best I know.
I've never heard that terminology used like that.
Except that if a person says that they need that the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam has told the truth about something
like when a person said like a last minute data set in the Koran, consider a law right say Allah is told the truth. So if a person says sadaqa masala lights Elias Allah, then it means the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has told the truth.
Okay. The question is,
is, is listening to the Quran? Does listening to the Quran have the same reward as recitation of the Quran? And the answer is no, but I want to give you some detail because it's important to know where our Prophet Isaiah selects was Sadam. Okay, first rule, how do we know what the reward of recite of reciting the Quran is? We know because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam informed us otherwise we wouldn't know that every single letter that is read it is you get 10 has a net? There's no way that you know that. How do we know that it's not five or 60? Or the only way we know is because what is because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam told us so we know that from reading the Quran, you get a 10
has an act for every letter.
And the prophets I send them say lefou Lf man mean how? I'm not saying that out of land mean is hard, because the Arabs also called called words, entire words they call it Hough, sometimes surprised by some didn't want us to get confused and think that he's talking about every word. He said no, and if is
no the letter L if that's a letter, lamb is a letter meme is a letter. So if you say Alif Lam mean that's three times 10 which is what 30 has.
Like, as for listening to the Quran, then there is nothing that has been narrated To my knowledge, where the prophet SAW Selim specify a reward for listening to the prime. However, listening to the Quran is a better and we know that because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam instructed both in Israel and obey the power of the alarm chat and man to recite to him the Koran. And he listened to the Koran attentively when they recite to the point that because we know the story of him so when he reached the I sort of tend desert, Okay, very good, didn't have and poorly on my TV show he then we didn't have he got out with a shahida. How will it be what we bring forth from every nation a
witness, and we bring you as a witness with this station, approximately someone he said he looked at the sentiment, his eyes were flowing with tears, the prophesied Some said husband. And that's that's enough. Sufficient listening to the Orion is a bad and a lot of us.
Don't take advantage of them. You might turn the Koran on.
For Are you actually listening to the Koran. And so here is an important point to mention.
And that is that a an act of an event
that is more virtuous, in general
less virtuous than another act due to the circumstances. Like what does that mean? But I'll give you 10
Vicar or recitation of the Quran?
Hmm. What's better? recitation of the Quran is better than saying analyze, analyze, analyze. Okay. Hi.
In record, what's better, Vicar or recitation acquire Vicky, because recitation before I'm in any event has been forbidden in reward, and as to Jews. And so in that circumstance, Vicar becomes but
likewise, a believer has to look for his heart. So, in other words,
though recitation of the Quran is better if
A person has been recited the Koran for the last two hours,
he may get to a point where now he is
using these terms loosely tired of reading the bra. Okay? So he puts the Koran down at that point, it's better for him to do
for him specifically. And so similar is the cases of how and this is part of your fifth in worship and the last one time. And this is how you get to the point, the lag time. And hopefully this is what we strive for, you know, as every Ramadan goes by and we try to get better when your last 10 nights are all spent in totally bad velocity. Anytime you think about it, you say what, man, I can't pray, you know, I'm not going to pray from him. And he said to fudger, that's just a little too much for me. I'm not going to recite more from you said, so I'm not going to read Tafseer for it, okay, from each answer. But if you, when you get tired of doing this thing, you move on to the next one
with the bed, you get tired from that you move on to the next one, a bed that is shot, like your whole time is spent in a bed. And so Likewise, we talked about recitation of the grind and listening to the grind, you may get to a point where you actually are physically tired of reciting the Quran. So at that point, stop and listen to the bribe. And that's also
say that again.
Oh, four janessa frim. Hey,
if you missed two, how do you complete the remaining two? Excellent. Okay.
Mashallah, okay. So the first question is, is that gonna?
Be the first question is about the janaza prayer. If you missed the first two, if you missed the first 210 meals of the genetic upgrade, what's happening in the first two, by the way, after you say, Allahu Akbar, you're going to resign fantastic. And then you say, Allahu Akbar again. And then you do it. Since a lot and Salaam to find the Prophet, it is so hard to say. But then you say, Allahu Akbar. So the brothers saying, Now I missed those first two. And I'm coming in at number three, what do I do? There's a big difference of opinion amongst the styles on this, but what I'm most comfortable with is that you go directly into making the do I, for the deceased, which is the
which is what you would do after the third. When the man says a lot for for number four, and he slams out. And you just say, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, and then you Salama, and you don't say anything after those two, what you do for tech meals.
And Allah subhana wa, tada knows best. Like I said, there's a difference of opinion. And in fact, and in fact, I've even read from some scholars, they say that if you miss, if you miss the first check below, you don't, you don't even join the the
behind the man.
Right. Right, because he's at the, he's at the third, third. So you do what he would be doing at that third? Like, the second question is, can we pray behind any man who was clean shaven? All right. And the answer to this is, is two parts. Number one is that there's a general rule in Islam. And that is Mensa had Salatu sahak. Email number two who, whoever salaat is valid for himself.
It is valid for him to be the email.
And his email is also valid. So
even if he is openly sinning, by cutting his beard, okay. His salaat is still valid. I can be praised by himself, this a lot will be valid. And so because of that, his saliva is valid for himself. And it is valid for anyone who prays behind him. But let's take it a step further. Hold on, hold on one second. Let's take it a step further.
Are there any handlers in the audience? Any of you handling now? Like, I'm only asking because humble is the only method that says that if you eat camel meat that you break it will do. All right. So if a if a Maliki for example, or someone that's not
They eat camel meat. Okay, like Campbell's Soup. That's another night. It's good, but it's good, by the way. And so they eat baby camel meat.
All right. And then there was someone who was humbled in a believe that if you if you eat canned meat it will do is, is invalid.
Okay. And this person, along with the majority of the scholars of Islam say no, it's not invalid. If you eat, if you eat camel meat it will do is still valid.
So they're together.
The one who is not humble, he stands up to pray,
doesn't make Voodoo is his slot valid, his slot is valid, and therefore it is valid for him to be the man. But the one who believes that his will do is invalid. If he stood up to pray with his salami valid, no. And I steep so panela that allies will no holds us to account for, for what we believe in any event. Anyway. The point is, whoever This is the general rule in Islam,
whoever, whoever salon is valid for himself, it is valid for him to be the man. The second part of the question is, is about the the person who was clean shaven. And there is no doubt that this is a sin in Islam, our Prophet it is selected with sin and has informed us and at least five different from at least five different companions from the hair, leave your beards for pasta shell, and in trim down your mustache. And so this is a command and the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And the general general rule for commands in Islam, whether they come from Allah Subhana Allah or they come from the prophet Isaiah, sometimes with Salman as soon as that those commands are indicative of
obligation, unless there is something that shows that it's not an obligation. And it was clear from the time of the Sahaba, and those that came after them, that growing the beard was something that they've used to bleep be obligatory to the point that
if a witness was called to the court, to the maximum, and he did not have a beard, his testimony would not be acceptable, because he was seen to be someone who was an open sinner. Now, that is not the case today.
In general, the testimony of someone who does not have a beard would be would not be rejected on the premise that he does not have a beard because of the fact that it is a bit more widespread in society. But I just want to show that early in his land, that there was no doubt about it. And it was seen as being something that was obligatory this is what they understood from the commands of the Prophet, I think is Salatu was selling. And this was the center of our profits in general, as we know, how long it took divided by the beer that he said, Don't take me by beer that
was the general consensus and
So the question is about, and this is going to be the last question because I this is Joomla. So we should take advantage of the time that is after the Doug's to at least, at least make some show a last pen what's added that you want his favorite that you want his blessing, oh, just turn your back. Don't know that this is a time to make the iPod and just sit there. You know, call upon a lot of fans out and think about the things that you want from this dunya and think about what you want from the here. ask Allah, Allah to Allah for those things. And if you have a book of blind that the Prophet somebody was telling us to make, go through some of them, read them from your heart, and he
read that maybe you need to read it once just to see what he's saying and then go back over and really ask Allah subhana wa Taala for those things, to answer your question, which is directly related to blood, which is about raising the hands in
immediately after a prayer, either individually or in congregation.
And the Sunnah of our messenger ra salatu salam, and we love him so alive.
And we believe that if we want Allah Subhana Allah to love us, that we need to love our Prophet it is select to save and follow him put in control to hipbone
to hipbone Allah said Toby, oni, Allah.
say if you love a lot, then follow me. Allah will love you and He forgive you of your sins. So we want to be people who genuinely try
To follow the way of our Prophet it is slightly similar to the person who's raising his hands and blind after Salah, he's asking a lot, he wants something from Allah. And the best way to ask the last parents Allah is to do it in the manner that our Prophet Isaiah, so that's what I did. And so what was the guidance of our Prophet sallallahu wasallam after God after after Salah, what we know from the continuous practice of our prophets, Allah is one of after Salah is that after salaams he was stuck for Allah, I stuck for a long stuff will not allow me to sit there. I mean, this Sudan,
Somalia, tn angeletti what you put on to the end of the practice of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, which included many Afghans, there is no indication that I'm aware of
that after any folks a lot that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would raise his hands. That's number one. Furthermore, there is no indication that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would make do I
decide to do either the province of lighting the southern encourage us to make was in the salon prior to a test lead and even even that do I that the problem somebody was talking while when he took him by the shoulder and he said oh why I love you. So don't forget to say be do birdie couldn't be solid.
That can be translated or that can be interpreted as meaning directly after the summer
or it can be interpreted to me at the end of your salon and in prior to anticipate and that no doubt about it is closer to the guidance of the Prophet ideas select was selected
because he even taught him to be Mr. Old on the old town anyone others were mostly campaigns that that was a mold error that was a place to make that before the test me and after the Select is all liquid if you look at everything else, it stick
that allow us to actually allow him to hamdu
Lillah Allahu Allah
Subhana Allah Subhana Allah 133 times a day Lola,
all of this decay. So in any event, it is not known from the Sunnah of the prophet and insolent president that after the fox is alive, he would raise his hands, not individually. And definitely had it been something that was congregational meaning something that the prophecy like someone did with the companions, or something that they did amongst themselves, then it would have been narrated, there's no way that that would have happened and not have been married, there would be some kind of evidence that would have come to us from the practice of the Prophet it so that was sitting in his companions. And since that's not the case, then this is why, you know, many of the
scholars would classify that act as being an act of innovation, because it is does not have any precedents in the Sunnah of our Prophet alayhi salatu. So, any other questions? We'll have to take them tomorrow, we have to take
the last question.
So the question is, the question is specifically mentioned that there are many of them, many people who come from Pakistan and India, they're able to read the Quran in Arabic, but they don't know what it means.
And so what should they do, basically, is what I'm understanding from the question. And this is the case with a lot of people as well throughout the world, throughout the Muslim world, who have been blessed to learn how to read Arabic, and can read the Quran, but they have no idea what it is that they are reading. And the answer to that
is that there's Baraka in reading the Quran, in Arabic.
It's Baba, the book itself, as it was revealed, is Baraka in the poor eye. And so what I'm going to first encourage you to do is learn Arabic, do your best, you know, take your time and it doesn't. As long as you take that path to improvement, then Allah subhana wa tada will be rewarding you further
and at the same time as so and so you should continue to read the Koran in Arabic don't stop reading the Quran and Arabic. At the same time, I highly recommend highly recommend for those who do not understand Arabic to read a translation of the meanings of the Quran and their language frequently
and that is because
Even some handler, I read something that a Christian wrote
approximately 300 years ago,
a British Christian
who was reading a translation of the Quran. And there was only one translation available at that time that was by an orientalist named George Saylor.
And that translation
was not a particularly faithful translation It was written for, or it was translated for missionaries, so that they could try to convert Muslims to Christianity.
And this Christian minister,
read the translation of the Quran or at least parts of it. And he had nothing but glowing praise for the monotheism of the Quran, he called it that the towhees shine through he said, the oneness of the uniqueness of God, and his sole right to be worshipped, shine through in the Koran, he was completing the Arabic, he was reading the English. And many of us have this experience with the before learning Arabic, of reading the Koran in your native language, and how you benefit from them.
How you benefit from that translation, even though it's not Arabic, you're still benefiting from
Hama cola. And so
the point of the Quran the Quran was not revealed simply to be recited. It was revealed for what Li adept bow at, to ponder over its verses, and you cannot ponder, you will not be able to reflect over the last minutes of his speech. If you don't know what it means, the first step is to know what you can know what it means and not panic.
But you cannot ponder if you do not know what it means. And so I am saying that there is a great reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala for reading the translation of the Quran. Now, I can't say that for every letter, there's 10, you know, Hi sonet, or anything like that, because that's only known by Allah subhanaw taala. But there's without a doubt that he bajor reading those translations and trying to understand what a lie is, or Joe is saying that is a bad thing. And so you should do both. Don't leave off reading the grind in Arabic and push yourself to learn what those words mean, especially because you speak or do and there are a lot of words that are that are similar, right.
And you already know how to read the length. So push yourself to go that extra mile and learn what you can of the Arabic language a lot of items a lot of some of the water can intervene on hemisphere panic alarm and the shadow load and to stop a little go to Munich.
