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

Today, I mean in this section inshallah, we're going to talk about actions of the heart. And it's romantic. Well, the Allahu taala and who said that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, said there are three qualities.

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

Whoever possesses these qualities will taste the sweetness of Amen.

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

Okay, there was a slight error here, whoever has the following three qualities will taste the sweetness of faith, that Alon has messaged us a lot. He was one of my more beloved to him than anything else. That's number one, and you should probably put a number one next to it.

00:00:37--> 00:00:43

Number two, he loves a person only for the sake of Allah.

00:00:46--> 00:01:07

Number three, and he despises returning to disbelief after law has saved him from it. Just as he would be as he would despise, to be thrown into the fire. It's collected Bible hardened Muslim. I want you to read over that. And I really do want you to look to talk with your partner. Think about it. Our book is called what

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

actions of the heart? Give me a chapter title. For this you have 30 seconds

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

come up with the chapter title for this Howdy.

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

Oh, you have one already.

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

One second.

00:01:49--> 00:01:49

play

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

this time. If the sisters have a title, we'll take one from the sisters and then the young men in the back.

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

sisters have a title.

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

sweetness of event. Okay. Yes. In the back.

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

Sorry. Same one, huh? sweetness of human Yes.

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

Again,

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

three points of love from the heart. Okay.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

This, this Hadeeth.

00:02:23--> 00:02:54

Without a doubt, it deals with the sweetness of a man. But the action of the heart is sweetness of the man is the result of an actions of the heart. So I wouldn't title this sweetness of a man because I'm looking for an actual action here. Which is loving Allah and loving for Allah perhaps, perhaps, okay? Because this is how you taste the sweetness of faith, you're actually going to have to maybe take some notes here, shallow tap.

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

It's not asking too much as i know it's after, after lunch and everything so life might want to get your pens out shallow tan.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

First things first.

00:03:12--> 00:03:17

actions of the heart. What's better actions of the heart or actions of the limbs?

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

The heart. Even though Chi Rahim Allah Allah says that the reason why actions of the heart are

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

better

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

and more virtuous than the actions of the limbs. Because the actions of the heart do not have a specified time.

00:03:37--> 00:03:59

When you look at that, when you look at the actions of the limbs, there's a start time and end time. So a lot has a starting point and an end point. Zakat is the same thing, fasting is the same thing. Hajin home run to the end, but when it comes to actions of the heart, like loving Allah Subhana Allah, there is no starting endpoint has to be continual.

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

And he I don't know where to start with the end on this topic. So lies with the tofi Okay.

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

I do want you to write this down.

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

love of Allah, loving Allah.

00:04:22--> 00:04:33

It means that your heart is inclined to Allah Subhana data, which requires, you have to sacrifice for him

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

to give preference to what Allah loves, over everything else.

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

Until obey him

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

over everything else. So

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

when you love something,

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

you sacrifice for

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

many of you. How many of you have children, raise your hands. You have children.

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

Excellent.

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

sacrifice for your children?

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

Yeah.

00:05:06--> 00:05:10

What if, what if you just didn't feel like going to work one day, you just not go?

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

No. Why?

00:05:14--> 00:05:32

Because you know that there are other people depending on you that you love. You don't want to let them down. You if it was about you, if it was just you a lot of times, there would be a totally different approach that you would take. But because you love somebody, you do things that you wouldn't normally do.

00:05:33--> 00:05:43

And this is important to understand, when you love Allah subhana wa Tada. And you know what He requires of you, even if it's something that at that said moment,

00:05:44--> 00:05:53

is something more beloved to you or something else that you prefer to be doing? You do what a lost parent is pleased with until you get to the level

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

where you only love what Allah loves. And that's a higher level.

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

That's a higher level than loving Allah.

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

So what that means is that

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

you forsake your bed,

00:06:12--> 00:06:18

to pray to Allah subhanaw taala at night, and you love doing that. Even though you're tired.

00:06:20--> 00:06:23

It's like sufian Rahim, Allah to anicet

00:06:25--> 00:06:42

gehad to nuptse and RPM, Laila, if you Lena center, I fought myself to pray the night prayer for 20 years. Laila Allah, Annie, that's a long Jihad jahad to never see at the Jihad with myself for 20 years.

00:06:44--> 00:06:56

And then he said, and then I tasted the sweetness of it to live to be had any, I enjoyed it for the next 20 years. And it became more beloved to him than anything else.

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

And so these levels,

00:07:01--> 00:07:07

it, it starts one place, and then you keep doing it until it becomes beloved tea.

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

You know, a person may, for example, when they first start practicing Islam, whether that's because they just accepted Islam, or they fell off and they came back.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

Maybe fudger is difficult for them in the beginning.

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

But let me ask you something, you're gonna get up anyway. Right?

00:07:28--> 00:07:36

See, the dean is easy. The Dean is easy. Because everything that our last parent data requires us to do we do anyway.

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

There's nothing that allows parent data requires us to do that we don't already do any way or wouldn't do.

00:07:49--> 00:07:49

Do you agree with that?

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

Would you make hij? If it was not obligatory?

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

No, seriously?

00:07:59--> 00:08:13

I probably wouldn't. I'm starting obligatory. I'm saying if it wasn't from the dean, if it wasn't something that a lot of legislative would you make hij go walk around now. Okay. So what? But would you take a vacation?

00:08:14--> 00:08:34

Yeah. And would you spend more money than you spend on height? And would you exert more effort than you exert a lot? Probably, probably no problem. So that allows me that has told us to do it for height, then we do it. We love a las panatela we want to please Him. And that's what he obligated upon us. And we were gonna do

00:08:35--> 00:08:48

we get up with time at five o'clock now these days? 455. Here. Okay. So you get up for funding? Do you know that there are people all over the world to get up before that? To go to work?

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

Right. So if it was work, and that's what you had to do, wouldn't you do it?

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

Yes. So why don't I get up for fudger?

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

There's nothing across the board. Even the sisters might say, well, she wouldn't wear hijab, you know, if it wasn't an obligation. I've seen non Muslim women who cover themselves similar to Muslim women. Why? Because it's cold outside.

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

sigh Okay. I mean, the point is, you're doing it anyway. You're doing it anyways. So the dean is not difficult at being useful. Last spring data made the deal easy. Our problem is we keep looking at as extra stuff we have to do. But if we looked at it as things that draw us closer to a loss of hands on, and that by our hearts being attached to the Creator, that we gain so much in terms of personality, in terms of real intimate men and in real taste in the real sweet

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

This life real tranquility because your heart is attached to a loss of habitat.

00:10:07--> 00:10:11

So consider these things when we talk about loving allies. I

00:10:16--> 00:10:21

am my name Allah tala mentioned his 10 ways to develop love for lost paradigm.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

And you're going to write them down now about a low frequency Jimmy and

00:10:26--> 00:10:32

10 ways to develop your love for lost dad.

00:10:34--> 00:10:47

This is taken from his famous book, my dad is Sadie king. The first we're gonna kind of race through these reciting the Quran and reflecting and understanding its meaning and its intent.

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

Number one again is what?

00:10:51--> 00:11:13

Not just reciting the Quran what else reflecting over the crime of eliminate double coat Jani, the point of this chorion is that you reflect over its meanings. To reflect over its meanings you have to know what it means. So Tafseer is your first level reflection is a level that comes after Tafseer.

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

So you recite the Quran frequently, type number two,

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

drawing closer to a loss of hammer to Allah,

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

through a Noah fill through optional deeds after fulfilling your obligations.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

And this requires some filler

00:11:34--> 00:12:14

because all of us have a common denominator, right? We all have to do certain things we all have to pray five times a day we'll have to fasting Ramadan, we often make Hajj we all have to be dutiful to our parents, we all have to take care of the rights and responsibilities for our spouses and so on so forth, right? That's all of us. Okay, but then allows parents dialysis and these are the things that are most beloved to Allah. But then Allah says after that there are no I feel optional deeds in a person will continue to do them until I love him a lot fantasise. So, when we look at that,

00:12:15--> 00:13:00

we also have to recognize that we're individuals and whatever last whatever door Allah azza wa jal opens for you, you need to excel in that door. You need to excel in that particular aspect of Islam. Maybe Eliza gel has blessed you to be generous, he's blessed you with wealth, and he's blessed you to be generous, that might be your door to enter Paradise and the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said that the people of South Africa will enter Jenna from the door of sadaqa, the people of prayer, and he that is those who go above and beyond what is normal. The people of prayer will be called from the door of prayer. And the people who fast that is they go above and beyond in fasting, they

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

will be called from what door. Or again, it's the only door that has a name by the way other than Okay, so when you when you think about these things, you see that people will excel in different areas. And that's what we need as a community to survive. Everybody can't do the same thing. And that's fine.

00:13:20--> 00:13:25

Don't look at what everybody else is doing. Look at what Dora lives with Joel has opened for you and then go in that door and Excel.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

Number three,

00:13:29--> 00:13:37

to be constant, or continuous, regular, and the remembrance of Allah fantana

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

with your tongue and with your heart,

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

your tongue and with your heart.

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

Or I should say with your heart and your tone.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

Because the thicker starts in the heart.

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

But the tongue also has an effect. So if you get yourself used to just saying Subhana level hunger Level A lot, a lot of luck. But even if you're not thinking about it, it's still Vicky

00:14:02--> 00:14:06

and then be it Neela if you think about what you're saying,

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

then that is another level of decay.

00:14:11--> 00:14:21

And sometimes you think it might be only in your heart and you might not say anything, and your eyes may begin to tear because of you thinking about a loss of habitat. That's number three. Number four.

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

That you give

00:14:26--> 00:14:40

precedence to what Allah loves over what you love. So if there's any conflict of interest between what you desire and what Allah subhana wa tada loves, then you give him preference.

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

Number five

00:14:44--> 00:14:49

is to know and contemplate the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

Someone to sell refuse to say there is no one that knows Allah.

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

But must love him.

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

If you really know a lot of parents out you will love.

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

Type.

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

Bring back 125125 is open book test 125? Yes.

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

Yes, yeah.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

Yes.

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

Yes.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

Number six, number six

00:15:38--> 00:15:38

to

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

recognize

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

a loss of Dallas favors and bounties

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

to recognize his favors and bounties.

00:15:53--> 00:16:00

And when you really realize the favors that Allah Subhana Allah has given you, you can't help but to love him.

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

Okay, the seventh reason

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

and even Okm calls this

00:16:10--> 00:16:15

the most wonderful, the most marvelous of all of the seven

00:16:17--> 00:16:25

is that you approach a las panatela with a totally broken heart.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

I mean, what does that mean? That you are totally broken? That you What does it mean when we say that you're broken?

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

helpless?

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

overwhelmed. Okay.

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

Sorry.

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

Hurt doesn't mean hurt here.

00:16:48--> 00:16:53

If when? When people go to the armed forces, right,

00:16:54--> 00:17:01

the first year, first couple months that they in the armed forces, do you know what the superiors do?

00:17:03--> 00:17:17

They call them What? We break him. Not they don't hurt him. They let him know who the boss is. He gonna make him do all types of things. Not necessarily that there's even any particular reason behind it. But just so

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

just so that he loses

00:17:23--> 00:17:32

all Yes, his ego is out the window and he is submissive to the boss to the superior.

00:17:33--> 00:17:40

This is how you want to be in front of your dad. totally broken in front of Allah.

00:17:45--> 00:17:51

Yeah, yohannes and tumon fukumura illa lol honey, honey.

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

Pie.

00:17:56--> 00:17:56

The

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

the eighth

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

is to recite the Quran

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

and pray to Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

and the last third of every night

00:18:19--> 00:18:25

to pray reciting the Quran, citing the Quran and praying and the last third of the night.

00:18:27--> 00:18:27

And

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

seeking Allah Subhana Allah is forgiveness and repenting to him at that time as well.

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

The ninth

00:18:39--> 00:18:44

is to sit amongst the people who you believe love

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

to sit amongst them to be with them to reap the fruits of their speech

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

to emulate them.

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

And the 10th and final thing that he mentioned the Rahim Allah

00:19:05--> 00:19:11

is to stay clear of anything that distances the heart from Allah.

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

Anything that takes you away from the remembrance of a loss of her dad.

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

Now, these are 10 different things that will lie if we work on them. It'll keep us busy until we meet a loss.

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

And we should be conscious of that day.

00:19:33--> 00:20:00

And we should really try and this doesn't mean we're lucky. Let me just tell you this too. Don't try to do all 10 at once, if you're not from the people who are doing some of these things anyway. Don't try to do all 10 at once. If you are already Alhamdulillah you recite and you reflect over the Quran and you pray in the last 10th to last third of the night. But there are other things that you haven't done, increase one by one gradual, gradual

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

Because that is more likely that you will remain firm on it. And it's not just going to be a hype thing was very important that you implement these things in your life.

00:20:10--> 00:20:17

Some other things related to love because the next few ahaadeeth inshallah are going to be

00:20:18--> 00:20:43

covering the topic of loving Allah subhana wa Tada. In this particular, in this particular Hadith, sorry, just to go back quickly, it says that they are, whoever has the following three qualities will taste the sweetness of email. And I want you to just think about the wording there the Prophet idea is to say lamb talks about men having a taste

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

and it is tasted by the heart, in fact, now, the same way that if one of us was had a cold

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

and was congested,

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

you would not be able to enjoy the normal foods that you love.

00:21:06--> 00:21:14

You wouldn't you you could still eat but you wouldn't enjoy it yet because you can't taste anything because because you have a cold.

00:21:15--> 00:21:24

And it's the same thing for the heart. If the heart is congested, if the heart has an illness, or it's surrounded by sins,

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

then it's not going to taste the sweetness of faith.

00:21:32--> 00:21:47

In the one of the greatest things that you can have is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam mentioned here is that love of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will remove that congestion of the heart and allow you to taste the sweetness of faith for you.

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

I have a conflict of time here but this issue is very important. So what we'll do we'll cover the next Hadeeth and and then I'll

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

do some other comments then next, what do we title it first?

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

Look,

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

love

00:22:16--> 00:22:21

loving for the sake of Allah loving Allah, loving for Allah.

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

Bye.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

A romantic

00:22:28--> 00:22:34

about the Allahu tida and who said that a man as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in some narrations,

00:22:35--> 00:23:14

he mentioned that this man came from the desert. He was a he was a better one. And they used to like when the better ones would come to the prophet Isaiah of salatu salam because the Bedouins didn't really have any, like code of manners, you know? So they would ask things that the rest of the companions would be a little shy or to ask the prophet SAW you something they wouldn't be as keen to ask them the same way. So ns ematic says that this man came and he asked the Prophet it is Salatu Salam matassa When is the hour when is the hour and when is the amo pm

00:23:15--> 00:23:27

and the prophet Isaiah is selected with Salim responded by saying to him, what have you prepared for it? In other words, when is not really an issue because you don't have any control over that.

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

What you need to be concerned about is preparation.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

What have you prepared for it?

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

The man said

00:23:40--> 00:23:56

he said Man, I did too. He said man I did to the ham and Kitt Salatin was only when I saw that said I haven't prepared for many prayers, or a lot of fasting or a lot of charity.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

Work in the law what else hula hoop but I love Allah and His messenger. Okay.

00:24:03--> 00:24:16

I'm gonna comment there real quick and then I'll and then we'll finish the Howdy. Some people think this hadith means that the man didn't pray or he didn't fast or he didn't give Southern. Did you understand that from the heady? No?

00:24:17--> 00:24:28

No. He says I don't do a lot of that. In other words, I don't go above and beyond what is obligatory in these things, but he does fulfill his obligations clearly.

00:24:30--> 00:24:56

He says but I love Allah and His messenger. The prophet Isaiah is Salatu was Salam said to him, you will be with those whom you love. You will be with those whom you love this hadith is it. It's a very interesting how deep and shallow tada after you come up with a title for it. We'll discuss it. You have 30 seconds inshallah.

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

Tie who's got a who's got a title for me

00:25:51--> 00:26:00

getting ready for final exams Allahu Akbar for the final the final exam. Okay? Yes, yes.

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

For the love of Allah What?

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

I can't hear what

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

the ultimate reward for love of Allah. Okay? Yes.

00:26:18--> 00:26:18

Again

00:26:21--> 00:26:28

superiority of the actions of the heart. Okay? over the actions of the limbs that's interesting. Okay

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

the basic concept of

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

of the our law I wouldn't go with that. Okay, let's let's take a look at this hadith inshallah.

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

Again, again,

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

we are talking about actions of the heart.

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

We are talking about loving Allah

00:26:57--> 00:27:06

and His Messenger, even baton Rahim Allah to Allah, who was one of the first people to explain Sahil Buhari.

00:27:08--> 00:27:16

He says that the meaning is interesting, I want you to kind of want you to follow this. He says the meaning of this hadith and Allah knows best.

00:27:18--> 00:27:28

Or to explain why is it that a person is with the one whom he loves, is that those who love the righteous, love them for what reason?

00:27:32--> 00:27:40

They love them because they are obedient to Allah. They love these righteous people because of their obedience to Allah.

00:27:41--> 00:27:47

And since love is from the actions of the heart

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

aligns with Jen has rewarded him for this action of the heart

00:27:57--> 00:28:09

in a manner that is similar to his reward for the righteous people, because a Nia and your intentions are the sole

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

intentions or the what?

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

How do you translate us?

00:28:16--> 00:28:30

This is the root of the issue is the intention and actions are what follows and Allah subhana wa tada gives his virtue to whom He wills now, I'm gonna, I'm gonna break this down for you in a second shallow, hopefully, hopefully you don't.

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

Hopefully, you can understand what I'm saying.

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

Let's look at an action.

00:28:37--> 00:28:40

I just stood up, right, that's an action. Okay.

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

So he'll stand up.

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

How did you just stand up? How did that happen?

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

Okay, so first thing is you had the one, two, right, you can sit down.

00:29:02--> 00:29:09

And he he wanted to obey me because I love him. So he wanted to stand up. Okay. And then what did he do?

00:29:11--> 00:29:27

He had the ability to stand up, right? If, for example, let's say somebody was in a wheelchair or something like that, or they had some problems with the legs and they couldn't stand up, then even if they wanted to. It wouldn't happen. Why?

00:29:28--> 00:29:43

Because they don't have the ability. Now. So hail is somebody who has the ability to stand up and he wanted to stand up. But what if somebody, let's just say was a lot stronger than Suhail held him to the chair.

00:29:45--> 00:29:46

When he tries to stand up, what's going to happen?

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

He's not going to be able to stand up.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

He's going to struggle, but he's still not going to stand up. So the issue we have here is that every day

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

voluntary action

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

is made up of an intention,

00:30:06--> 00:30:07

ability

00:30:08--> 00:30:15

and the lack of or that is void of obstacles, the lack of obstacles.

00:30:16--> 00:30:25

Understand this point. All right. So here what, what Paul is saying is that this person,

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

this person

00:30:28--> 00:30:31

is near his to do what

00:30:32--> 00:30:49

seems like this is what he's saying that his Nia is to be of the worshipers, he wants to be righteous, this is his desire, right. But perhaps he does not have the same abilities that they have, or that there are obstacles that keep him from being able to be like them.

00:30:51--> 00:31:26

For example, you may be a certain way, but because of your family and your children that you have to care for, which is your obligation, by the way, you can pray as much as you would like to or fast as much as you would like to or whatever it may be, but you have that desire. But there is something that is preventing you from doing so. I want you to understand that well, because it's going to come again when we talk about in ml ml, when the act and actions are by their intentions, okay? A person is with those whom he loves.

00:31:27--> 00:31:34

Or you will be with those whom you love and that other narration, a person is with those whom, whom they love.

00:31:36--> 00:31:54

has an adversity by Hema hula hoops Allah said about this particular statement of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was salam, O son of Adam, don't be fooled. Don't be deceived by the statement

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

a person is with he whom he loves,

00:31:58--> 00:32:21

because a person who loves a people will follow their way a person who loves the people will follow their way and you will not be amongst the righteous, you will not catch up to the righteous until you follow their path

00:32:22--> 00:32:29

and their guidance in emulate them with to speak however, to see what entirely I mean hedgy him

00:32:31--> 00:32:34

and that you begin an end your day

00:32:35--> 00:32:39

upon their way, their methodology, their menage

00:32:40--> 00:32:49

Harrison Allah and takuna mean home, striving to be from amongst them, and so you follow their path.

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

And if you are if you fall short and your actions

00:32:57--> 00:33:03

The bottom line is that you are upon his DICOM

00:33:04--> 00:33:22

even when you fall short, you should still be upon his DICOM and that's what we talked about earlier. That falling short should not mean that you fall into sin either leaving off obligations are doing with the loss of power data has prohibited

00:33:24--> 00:33:24

by

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

I'll stop there for the sake of time. Number 13.

00:33:38--> 00:34:09

I will remember while the Allahu taala and who said that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said when I had been in Lahore Abu Dhabi Lila who outhaul in the woman and Lila for Cadiz, Stephen Miller email, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Whoever loves for Allah sake or anyone who loves for LASIK or hates for LASIK gives for loss seeking with holds for loss seek has completed faith. It's collected by Buddha Buddha tirmidhi and abandoned him altana greeted it as authentic

00:34:10--> 00:34:11

by

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

in this Hadeeth

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

Mallesh take 30 seconds and come up with a title for this please.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Hi

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

Similar. What do you come up with? We should title in the back. Somebody in the back. Okay, go ahead. Yes.

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

Do actions for the sake of Allah. We were talking about what?

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

Yes.

00:35:17--> 00:35:18

Loving for Allah Yes.

00:35:21--> 00:35:24

Righteous actions. What rights actions What?

00:35:28--> 00:35:29

In the back here? Yeah.

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

superiority of intention. Okay. Play? Yes.

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

Sorry.

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

The recipe for complete faith. I like that

00:35:44--> 00:35:50

criteria for completely excellent All right, so we'll stop there What are these criteria? What are they? How many are they

00:35:51--> 00:35:58

for Okay, so we have we have four criteria here What are they

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

loving? For Allah sake

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

hating for law sake, okay

00:36:07--> 00:36:28

giving for law sake and withholding for lossing Okay, loving for the sake of Allah now, this has come also. And the first one we talked about when we talked about the sweetness of faith that you love a person you only love them for Allah, how do you know you only love somebody for Allah?

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

Sorry.

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

One second let the sisters answer

00:36:41--> 00:36:44

even if you're bad to their bad to your good to them. Yeah, go ahead.

00:36:46--> 00:36:49

It's no it's Kp unconditional.

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

It has to be conditional upon their obedience to Allah Subhanallah

00:36:57--> 00:36:59

you have no expectations from you.

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

So what that means is what when you love somebody for Allah, and it's not, trust me, this is not easy to think that it's easy, you're fooling yourself.

00:37:12--> 00:37:21

Because it means that you don't expect any benefit any no worldly benefit from this person whatsoever.

00:37:24--> 00:37:33

That's a high level to get to. So you share no interest in general, and you know, worldly interests with this person.

00:37:34--> 00:37:53

Maybe it's beneficial at this point, if we go back and we talk about the two types, two major categories of love, I'm sorry, but we have to otherwise this stuff kind of where does this fall? There's two major categories of love. Okay, we have a specific and general the specific love

00:37:54--> 00:38:04

is is all related to Allah subhana wa Tada. So you have loving Allah as the origin

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

and that's what we talked about in the beginning, which requires you to be obedient to Him and so on and so forth.

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

You have loving

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

for Allah.

00:38:22--> 00:38:27

And then under that same category of one under Yes. of loving for Allah.

00:38:28--> 00:38:32

Which is like what what do you love for Allah?

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

Sorry.

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

No, no.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

It's a little different.

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

Loving for law sake. Okay, so

00:38:50--> 00:38:59

praying to HUD. Okay, so let me just tell you this is this is loving what Allah loves and there's loving for his sake.

00:39:01--> 00:39:05

But what why do you Why do you love the prophets and messengers?

00:39:09--> 00:39:34

Because they, they brought a lot of fans out his message because they were close to a loss of data because they were the most obedient to Allah turns out so we love them for the sake of Eliza. loving what Allah loves is obedience as in we love like somebody said pmla we love Mecca and Medina. We love Ramadan we love because a lot of parents Allah loves these things right.

00:39:36--> 00:39:44

And then under this category is the fourth one which is actually should and that is loving others with Allah.

00:39:45--> 00:39:56

these are these are the things these are this the love that is related to a loss of habitat. And a lot of times they call this servitude gentle love or habitat udia

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

this is this is love. That is a

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

form of worship so love that is a form of worship but we have another category which is general love this is not a form of worship

00:40:10--> 00:40:21

and there are different types under this category so you have natural love right like the food that you that you like in foods that you enjoy

00:40:23--> 00:40:29

clothes that you that this is this is a natural love they call it hope to be

00:40:30--> 00:40:34

then you have what they call merciful love like what

00:40:37--> 00:40:50

like a mother like a mother loves the child now this is also natural right that a mother loves the child but it's a it takes a different form which is why they call it merciful natural you like you love honey for example

00:40:52--> 00:41:02

that's that's natural there's no mercy involved in it okay it's part of but but this kind of Merciful of our father for his child for example, this is merciful love

00:41:03--> 00:41:16

The third type is what they call congenial love, you love something because it's familiar. It's like you so you might for example

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

let's just say

00:41:20--> 00:41:32

people who work with you you might develop a certain kind of because you all are on the same boat as they say right you develop a certain kind of love or affinity for for these people right

00:41:34--> 00:41:54

and then the last one to discount as mentioned under this category is reverential love. That's like the love that a child has for his or her parents that a student has for his share and so on and so forth. Alright, so, if we come back now

00:41:55--> 00:42:01

and we look at this anyone who loves for a loss sake

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

then what what could possibly be under this category

00:42:07--> 00:42:08

ah

00:42:10--> 00:42:26

no both things both things. This here is loving for Allah and loving what Allah loves both of that comes into this category so you love this thing for last panel dynasty hating for love's sake. That Okay, we Muslims, we're not supposed to hate people, right?

00:42:28--> 00:42:29

So they say, hi.

00:42:32--> 00:42:39

So yeah, like we there's, there's a lot of things that you in order to be a true believer, you have to hate what Allah Subhana Allah hates.

00:42:40--> 00:42:52

alarma Joe hates cover. He hates shake. He hates the shape, fine. I mean, all of that. And then people who embody that, then they are hated according to the embodiment of it.

00:42:56--> 00:43:00

Which, which is why, which is why someone may be a Muslim.

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

And

00:43:04--> 00:43:16

they will actually Yanni there's degrees. In other words, they'll be hated for some of the things that they do and love for other things that they do. Time give for law sake,

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

giving for LASIK that's clear. Like what

00:43:22--> 00:43:22

sort of

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

what else?

00:43:26--> 00:43:26

Huh?

00:43:28--> 00:43:31

See, that's the thing. You don't just give

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

money,

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

your time,

00:43:35--> 00:43:54

your energy, your status. All of these are things that you give for Allah. And if you stop at thinking that this, that this here is giving only your Southern philosophy, you're gonna fall short. You're gonna fall short. We all have things to give

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

by withholding for law sake. Sorry,

00:44:02--> 00:44:07

your anger. So you, you withhold that type. That's good. What else?

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

What else?

00:44:12--> 00:44:15

Oh, I know. I know a lot of people who give their children things that they shouldn't have.

00:44:17--> 00:44:22

They're not withholding for loss sake. They've given into the pressure.

00:44:23--> 00:44:29

But Mommy, everybody else has one, okay. Right. But if you withhold for Allah sake,

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

then it shows that you have and you have one of the qualities that is necessary for complete faith and a loss of habitat. So this Hadith, this hadith is talking about a number of actions of the heart Even and that's why the example that that was mentioned about withholding your anger because withholding your anger is what it's an action of the heart. That's that's part of Subbu

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

All right, which which comes under this heading man island by mesh

00:45:12--> 00:45:15

number 14 we'll just do this one real quickly inshallah we'll keep him moving.

00:45:18--> 00:45:20

Who's the Sahabi for this? Hadeeth

00:45:22--> 00:45:24

Who's this a hobby for the previous Hadeeth

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

the one before that.

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

And it's the one before that.

00:45:33--> 00:45:35

The loving mushroom was it

00:45:36--> 00:45:38

was Ennis. You know.

00:45:42--> 00:45:45

Who was Ennis? Anybody here named Ennis.

00:45:47--> 00:45:54

Nobody named NSM Han Allah. Yes, we have an innocent avec. Mashallah. Molly Wolfie.

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

Who was Anissa romantic?

00:45:59--> 00:46:00

Of course, he was a Sahaba. Yes.

00:46:04--> 00:46:09

Was he from normal hygiene or from that and slop? From the outside?

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

Yeah.

00:46:12--> 00:46:34

was a young old, was young was to serve the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sitting by he said that the prophet Isaiah is selected with Sam said, none of you as a believer, and so I am more beloved to him than his children, his parents, and all of mankind, his children, his parents and all of mankind.

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

How is this an action of the heart?

00:46:42--> 00:46:50

Yeah, but why? Why? Why do you have to love the Prophet more than you love? Your children, parents and all of mankind?

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

So sorry.

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

repaying him

00:47:02--> 00:47:10

obeying Him. Yes, of course. Because if you love someone who's in authority, you're going to obey them. That's not really the issue. Yes.

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

Hold on, we love Him because why?

00:47:21--> 00:47:27

Because only we love when we can fight. Okay, let's go back. Hold on, to timeout timer.

00:47:28--> 00:47:48

When we talk about the love of a loss of habitat and loving Allah, right. And we talked about four categories. And under a specific type of love, the first is loving allies with them. The last one is loving others with Allah. So do we love the Prophet with Allah?

00:47:49--> 00:47:51

The way that we love Allah,

00:47:53--> 00:47:58

that you can't love the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA lamb, the way that you love Allah.

00:47:59--> 00:48:06

So, we have two other categories here. We love the messenger of loss, I sell them for the sake of Allah.

00:48:08--> 00:48:08

Okay.

00:48:10--> 00:48:11

And we love them because of lies, so they love to

00:48:13--> 00:48:20

play, how does this now become that he is more beloved to us, because he was the best

00:48:21--> 00:48:35

in his obedience to Allah. He was the one that was closest to Allah Subhana Allah in terms of that obedience, he was the person most beloved to Allah. And therefore we have to love him more than anything

00:48:36--> 00:48:42

more than our parents, our children and all of mankind, even ourselves, even ourselves.

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

What is the

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

indication? That one loves Allah?

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

Yes.

00:48:58--> 00:49:17

That he loves the messages allow you to sell him and then he does what? That he follows the messenger they select to center in control to hipbone Allah, fed sabbioni, your biblical mala? Well, Phil accom denuvo if you love Allah, then follow me.

00:49:18--> 00:49:36

Allah will love you and He will forgive you of your sins. So following the messenger of Allah azza wa jal following the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the indication that one really loves Allah. That is the that is the sign.

00:49:38--> 00:49:45

And it is impossible for one to claim that he loves Eliza gel and he just constantly is in disobedience of Allah azza wa jal.

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

He has to struggle in that regard.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

We have about a half an hour, and we've got to move through a few hobbies and look at the end of the day.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

These heartbeat that we're covering

00:50:02--> 00:50:04

are part of Revelation. They are why

00:50:06--> 00:50:09

Eliza gel sent down the Quran.

00:50:10--> 00:50:29

And he gave the Sunnah to the messenger it is Salatu was salam, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam million people and in our he didn't speak from his own desires and who will ever hear you had His revelation that was revealed to him so as soon as also revelation just by reading revelation and understanding it

00:50:30--> 00:50:51

and we've accomplished a lot with the lights and so I'm not going to stop and all of these Hadith but I think that many of them are important for us to understand the basic concepts of them and a shallow to add it will help affect some change in the way that we view things. Type Hadeeth number 15 who has the mic? Somebody you got a mic

00:50:52--> 00:50:55

type somebody just read the headings and shallow please

00:50:56--> 00:50:59

to break the monotony of my voice second lokalen

00:51:18--> 00:51:32

it was narrated that job in Brazil oh and who said three days before the Messenger of Allah Salam Salam died I heard him say no one of you should die except that he has good thoughts about a lot

00:51:34--> 00:51:37

Okay, this idea was collected by Muslim

00:51:40--> 00:51:48

what title what we give this Hadeeth with title was you give this hadith remember we're dealing with actions of the heart

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

okay

00:51:55--> 00:51:59

the importance of a loss love not this Heidi yes

00:52:01--> 00:52:05

hope and allows mercy I like that one that's good Yes.

00:52:07--> 00:52:10

With the heart should die upon Okay, yes.

00:52:12--> 00:52:13

What's the one who said

00:52:14--> 00:52:17

Mashallah, what's the line when we start there?

00:52:18--> 00:52:31

Okay, so having good thoughts about Allah will lie will lie or like this heading in the one after Let's read the one after and then I'll combine the explanation inshallah.

00:52:33--> 00:52:34

Yeah, keep going as he

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

who has the mic that is really really soon.

00:52:44--> 00:53:07

O'Hara Ravana reported which of the following solemn said a lot exalted says, I am as my slave expects me to be and I am with him when he remembers me. Okay, well, hardly a Muslim I am as my slave expects me to be and that one NAB the be the same word we're talking about here is vine, your Cinnabon? Billa. Okay.

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

It is so critical.

00:53:12--> 00:53:15

It is so critical that as Muslims,

00:53:16--> 00:53:22

that we have good thoughts about a loss, Peridot, Yanni, one of the biggest issues

00:53:23--> 00:53:26

amongst non Muslims, in general,

00:53:27--> 00:53:32

is that they have very bad thoughts about allies or just in general, in general.

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

They think really negatively about God.

00:53:38--> 00:54:05

And that's it. That's a problem. So we're going to start here, and we'll work our way down. The Prophet idea. Select was Sam says that not one of you should die, except that he has good thoughts about a loss of habitat. Five, the prophets of light of some of this was three days before he before he died. The Prophet sallahu wa sallam was sick for some period of time, so he felt like he was getting closer to death.

00:54:06--> 00:54:14

So here's the thing, none of you should die except them. And you hear for example, every Hope you're Latina. And

00:54:17--> 00:54:17

now

00:54:19--> 00:54:25

let's move to Nana. Let's move to a lower income. Muslim, don't die except that you are Muslims.

00:54:27--> 00:54:29

How do you choose when you're going to die?

00:54:30--> 00:54:34

Where you're going to die, how you're going to die? General No.

00:54:35--> 00:55:00

So what does that mean to not die, except that you are Muslim. It means that you have to live as a Muslim. So that whenever it is that you die, you die as a Muslim, to have to not die except that you have good thoughts about Allah means that you have to live with good thoughts about a lust fantastic, but especially especially and this is something that

00:55:00--> 00:55:24

indicated in the context of the study, especially if you get to that point where you feel like it's about to be over, that you have good thoughts about a loss pentatonic. Why do you think that is? So this is inspiring in us as the brother in the bank set hope, and a loss of data, hope and his mercy? Why? Because fear at the time of death, does, you know good

00:55:26--> 00:55:30

fear, when you're alive, is a good thing.

00:55:31--> 00:55:38

Because it keeps you away from doing things that would be displeasing to a loss of health data. That's a healthy kind of fear.

00:55:40--> 00:55:42

As death approaches,

00:55:45--> 00:55:53

if you're not doing anything anyway, everything remains now is what actions of the heart, it's all it remains.

00:55:54--> 00:56:06

And so, to turn that now, and recognize as a Lost Planet, Allah said about himself, My Mercy, has overcome my anger, my wrath,

00:56:08--> 00:56:33

to know that Allah subhanaw taala, yes, will be told with the land, that he's, he's happy that his servant has repented that he accepts repentance, these are the things you want to think about. As life goes on, right? So this is, this hadith inspires the action of the heart, known as hope. Right?

00:56:34--> 00:56:41

That's something that's very important. The, the next Hadeeth is is similar in meaning

00:56:44--> 00:56:57

with a little twist to it, and that is the Hadith where he says where last minute Alison had you could see when last month Allah says I am as my slave expects me to be.

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

Okay.

00:57:06--> 00:57:07

Many people

00:57:10--> 00:57:11

when

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

something bitter happens,

00:57:16--> 00:57:34

right, we believe in little cutter, Heidi, he washes the whole way he or mervi. And he the good and the evil of it, the sweet things and also the bitter things of life. We believe that all of that is from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:57:35--> 00:57:36

pay.

00:57:38--> 00:57:39

If you think that

00:57:40--> 00:57:44

if you think when something bad happens

00:57:46--> 00:57:53

that, oh, Allah is humiliating me, allows putting me through all of these tests.

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

I'm this I'm that I'm so wretched.

00:57:58--> 00:58:01

What's going to be the natural outcome of that?

00:58:04--> 00:58:20

what not, maybe not disbelief, despair from a las pantallas mercy. I mean, so many negative things happen. When we have that line of thinking, we have that line of thinking. But if you are going through a test

00:58:22--> 00:58:35

and your expectation from Allah subhanaw taala is that I'm going through this because aligns with gel is making me stronger. And how do you develop the quality of summer

00:58:37--> 00:58:59

except that you've gone through something that's a bit difficult, and then you come out of it and you realize what like when you look back and say humbly landed a larger agenda. And he tested me with that thing. Put me through that. I would have never learned how to do this had I not been going through that. You understand a lot of times we can't see the wisdom and everything

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

until it's over and sometimes we may never even understand it fully and that's fine too. But we have to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala once good for us we have to believe that we understand that allies would have otherwise he guided you to Islam for what so you go to hell.

00:59:19--> 00:59:20

So that you can live miserably

00:59:22--> 00:59:28

is what allows for that. No, we have to have better assumptions about Allah subhana wa tada

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

and to really know that whatever it is, look who memorize

00:59:38--> 00:59:44

don't memorize this regime, so I'm gonna call on you, of course, so don't worry about okay.

00:59:46--> 00:59:50

Okay, well, I'm insane. Either mobitel

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

type the first I

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

am

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

Isn't either Melbourne Salah hora boo for a Chroma who when I am a who for your Kudo, Robbie, economic type translate that

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

okay so Allah blesses him he gives him something

01:00:20--> 01:00:21

he says Allah

01:00:22--> 01:00:24

Allah has honored me.

01:00:26--> 01:00:29

Here's the problem though. What made them ever tell

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

what happened?

01:00:32--> 01:00:33

Either Allah

01:00:34--> 01:00:40

for your kulu, Robbie, Hannah, all but if all the minute things get a little bit tight

01:00:42--> 01:00:45

at first he was up there swimming and allows blessings,

01:00:46--> 01:00:49

maybe even using them to disobey Allah.

01:00:50--> 01:01:08

And then things got a little tight. Perhaps Eliza Joe wanted to reel him back in. So wait a minute, oh, you need to get tested this way to help you remember? Come back. So last time, you're cool or not be a hand. Oh, my lord is humiliating me learn how Lola Kota level

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

is that the thoughts of Angela.

01:01:15--> 01:02:00

Recognize recognize that Allah subhanho wa Taala. test us for different reasons. The important point is that to have always and not just store and test not not just because you're going to always expect the best from the last panel. You know, you're up something is up and coming. You've got a big exam in front of you, you've got a new job opportunity, you've got this expect the best from the last expect that Allah is going to always give you what's good for you, such that you go you apply for this job that you've been wanting. And then it doesn't work out but you pray this the car, and you know that if it was something good for you, Eliza Joe would have given it to you. Why? Because

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

Allah was good for you. And you believe that you expect that from Allah. I expect the best. And so Allah will give you the best. But if you're always pessimistic,

01:02:11--> 01:02:32

you always think the worst, then that's what you're going to get from a loss paradigm. It is a mindset and it's very important that we change the way we think about a lust paradigm, and not be so negative, and not be so negative. And the last minute that it says in this hadith and I am with him when he remembers me.

01:02:33--> 01:02:37

And so we should always be in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala they

01:02:38--> 01:02:39

next Hadith

01:02:55--> 01:03:02

over area low on who may Allah be pleased timeout. So number 15 we said What was

01:03:03--> 01:03:16

your man we said? Hope or we said good thoughts about a lot I like hope for number 15 and for 16 good thoughts about Allah expecting the best from Allah.

01:03:17--> 01:03:19

expecting the best from Allah.

01:03:22--> 01:03:26

By 17 we need to come up with the title for 17 go ahead read it.

01:03:29--> 01:03:47

Yes, messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, seven people Allah will give them a shade on the day when there should be no shade, but the shade of his throne, ie on the day of instruction and adjust ruler number one, so put a number one over adjust ruler.

01:03:48--> 01:03:52

Yeah. You grew up with the worship of worship of Allah.

01:03:54--> 01:04:00

I'm not sure grew up with the worship of Allah is the best way to explain it. And he he sorry.

01:04:03--> 01:04:16

lalalala that's coming that's come. Yanni, shabu. Nasha a fee. badatz europei. Okay, Myth number two, a youth who grew up in worship Allah fellowship, a person, a person whose heart is attached to the most.

01:04:18--> 01:04:39

And number four, two men who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah. Yeah, they love each other for the sake of Allah. They meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah, a man whom an extremely beautiful woman seduces for illicit relation, but he rejects this offer and says, I fear Allah.

01:04:40--> 01:04:49

It says an extremely beautiful woman, but in Arabic, it's in law. It's one that's Mung Sabine, what Jamal. She's both beautiful and

01:04:50--> 01:04:52

she has authority.

01:04:53--> 01:04:56

Monster, she has a position of authority.

01:04:57--> 01:05:00

And she's beautiful. That that's important to understand.

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

Because in a position of authority, what Yani that refusal becomes problematic because she may be able to harm him. Whereas if she was just beautiful and didn't have any power or any authority, and he rejected her, and he doesn't have the same effect, yeah.

01:05:17--> 01:05:18

Sorry.

01:05:20--> 01:05:23

Like, like what happened to us to find a Salatu? Salam?

01:05:25--> 01:05:34

Yeah, a man who gives in charity and conceal it to such an extent that the left hand does not know what the right hand right has given.

01:05:35--> 01:05:43

And a man who remembers Allah in solitude, and his eyes become cheerful than a Muslim. So here, there are quite a few

01:05:45--> 01:05:54

angles that we could talk about when we talk about actions of the heart, but I want you to notice something. We've dealt with love.

01:05:55--> 01:06:00

He love loving illustrations, I love him for his sake, we've dealt with hope.

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

So what do you think this Hadeeth we're looking for?

01:06:06--> 01:06:12

fear? Yes, exactly. And why is that? Why do you think we're dealing with love, hope and fear?

01:06:16--> 01:06:19

Because your worship has three pillars.

01:06:21--> 01:06:34

worship of Allah Subhana data has three pillars love, hope, and fear. And those three pillars are covered in sorbitol Fatiha right, where is love?

01:06:35--> 01:06:36

In fact, you

01:06:37--> 01:06:51

have hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen because you love your job, and you should handle do a rub actually, is the same tarbiyah right. From that same route

01:06:52--> 01:07:00

is the one who nurtures you the one who cares for you, the one who nurtures and care for you love him or her in this case is the last pants out so you love Eliza

01:07:02--> 01:07:22

Rahim gives us what hope that even if we fall short that he's still merciful to us. Maliki oma Dean gives us one fear. Because we know we have to be accountable and then stand in front of him subpoena without and we're not going to have anybody to help us. He's the king and He's the owner. He's the Malik and he's the medic.

01:07:25--> 01:07:27

And then what do we say in fact,

01:07:28--> 01:07:30

he aka not good

01:07:31--> 01:07:38

is You we worship we worship you with what the love, hope and fear that just proceeded in fattier.

01:07:39--> 01:07:46

And then we seek his assistance in doing that, which is a typical ally. Anyway, the concept of

01:07:47--> 01:07:48

this is why

01:07:49--> 01:07:51

it will claim also when he talks about

01:07:53--> 01:08:10

worship, he says that it's it's like, it's like a bird with a head is love. And the two wings are hope and fear that need to balance, they need that balance. If the head is cut off, then what happens

01:08:11--> 01:08:37

then the bird dies. So if you have no love, there's nothing to propel your worship of the loss of habitat. If you lose either wing, if that bird loses either way, what's going to happen? It's not gonna die, but it can't fly either. And it's going to become victim, and it's going to be a prey of whatever out there, whatever predator is out there. And so likewise, Your Worship if it loses

01:08:38--> 01:08:48

either hope or fear, you'll become a victim to the shape line pipe. So which part of this hadith is our main focus?

01:08:50--> 01:08:53

That that man, that man who was seduced

01:08:55--> 01:09:03

but he rejected it. And he said, I fear Allah in me a half Allah in the half Allah.

01:09:05--> 01:09:33

So and because of that fear, he is or that category of people are awarded shade on the day when there is no shade. When people will be standing for your auto sauce and PMA and in those in those planes, on the day of judgment, and some of them the sweat will be to their ankles and some to their hips and some to their necks. These people will get the shade of Allah Subhana who was add on that day.

01:09:35--> 01:09:38

And so fear of allies with gel is healthy

01:09:40--> 01:09:43

as long as it doesn't encroach upon

01:09:44--> 01:09:48

the hope that you have in a las pantallas merci

01:09:49--> 01:09:49

Bye

01:09:52--> 01:09:52

18

01:10:08--> 01:10:09

somebody read Bismillah

01:10:16--> 01:10:49

It is reported that Omar bin Al Khattab narrated I heard a last messenger salatu salam say, the reward of good, the reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So, whoever emigrated for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration will be considered to be for Allah and His messenger. And whoever emigrated for the sake of worldly gain or for a woman to marry, then his emigration will be considered to be for what he emigrated for.

01:10:51--> 01:10:52

Okay, this Heidi,

01:10:53--> 01:11:03

this Howdy, what title will we give it? Under the book? devotional actions of the heart? What title Are we going to give this hadith Yes.

01:11:07--> 01:11:10

intention. I want something more than intention

01:11:13--> 01:11:14

sorry.

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

Immigration of the heart. That's actually not that that's not a bad idea.

01:11:21--> 01:11:25

Even Okay, um, actually talks about that resell it to buceo which is translated into English.

01:11:27--> 01:11:28

So, good, good book to read.

01:11:31--> 01:11:44

Okay, look, intention can be for any thing and for anybody, right? When we talk about actions of the heart that are for Allah, what type of intention? Are we talking about?

01:11:45--> 01:11:52

sincerity a class and is something along those lines that that's what that's what we're looking for here.

01:11:54--> 01:11:55

Obviously, this had

01:11:58--> 01:11:59

to be frank

01:12:01--> 01:12:05

did a did a seminar on this Hadeeth for seven hours

01:12:06--> 01:12:08

on this hadith alone.

01:12:10--> 01:12:30

So to try to condense what can be said about this Hadees is absolutely amazing. And some of the scholars of the past used to say that, if it was up to me, I would put somebody in the masjid. Just to teach people about intentions. That's all he would do.

01:12:32--> 01:12:42

For the rest of his life. From the time he can teach until the time he dies, just teach people about nia. Okay. What we'll talk about here

01:12:44--> 01:13:02

is his two things mainly, and I don't know, perhaps we'll get off topic, but hopefully not because we don't have a lot of time. Two things I want you to look at when we talk about Nia The first thing is what is known as Nia to Lamin The, the intention related to the action.

01:13:04--> 01:13:25

And then you have the intention related to the one whom the action is being done for Nia to mahmudullah. Who so you have the intention of the action and the one who's intended clear. two categories is two categories. The intention of the action. So for example,

01:13:27--> 01:13:31

two people are praying next to each other.

01:13:32--> 01:13:36

One of them is praying, look, the other one is praying.

01:13:40--> 01:13:43

How do you know who's praying What?

01:13:45--> 01:13:47

You don't? You don't?

01:13:48--> 01:13:51

The only thing that separates the two is what

01:13:52--> 01:14:09

is the intention? That's the intention of the action itself. And this is where will lie will lie. This is where people gain so much reward because

01:14:10--> 01:14:13

they're doing mundane actions.

01:14:14--> 01:14:19

But they're doing it for Allah. If you keep this hadith in mind,

01:14:20--> 01:14:23

it will change your life. I guarantee it.

01:14:24--> 01:14:33

Someone is telling us to say Tessie boo, no Mati can access he will call me and I seek reward

01:14:34--> 01:14:37

in my sleep the same way I do when I'm awake.

01:14:38--> 01:14:39

Okay.

01:14:40--> 01:14:56

He goes to sleep, not simply because he's tired. He goes to sleep so he can get up and worship Allah. That's his intention when he goes to sleep. I'm going to sleep now so that I can get up and worship Allah. The whole time. He's sleeping what's happening.

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

He's soaking in the reward.

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

panela

01:15:02--> 01:15:07

when he eats, he's not eating just because he likes the food.

01:15:09--> 01:15:30

But he's eating so that he can continue in the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada, when he goes to work, he's not just going to work to make money. He recognizes that this is a responsibility that he has as a Muslim man. And he wants to fulfill that responsibility to illustrate that.

01:15:31--> 01:15:43

The food, we all go, we go, we go out and buy food, right? We do it because it's just call us this what I'm supposed to do. When shala there's a reward in that, but there's a different kind of reward when a person's Nia

01:15:44--> 01:15:49

is that they're fulfilling an obligation that Allah Allah has placed upon them.

01:15:50--> 01:16:06

And so me It changes everything. Nia changes, everything is panela. Every mundane action that you do. Yeah, and, and and I don't want to, I don't want to single out the sisters in this one, but I will.

01:16:10--> 01:16:18

Sisters, clean the house, wash dishes, do all these mundane things that brothers just don't want to do.

01:16:19--> 01:16:29

never learned how to do it would be a catastrophe if they did, right? And the sisters take that slack and they do it. Why do they do it?

01:16:31--> 01:16:43

If they're doing it, to please allies with them, by pleasing their husbands, they are raking in the rewards if they're doing it, because culturally, that's what the women in our culture do.

01:16:44--> 01:16:50

Then it's a good thing. But there's no it's not like doing it to try to please Allah.

01:16:52--> 01:17:02

And so we have to get to that level, we have to keep pushing ourselves. If it takes a constant awareness,

01:17:03--> 01:17:12

and it will change you, but you got to just keep working on it. And the more you work on it in shallow talent, the more conscious you will be of allies

01:17:14--> 01:17:22

and will change things. That's one thing. The other thing is me it'll mahmudullah Who are you doing this for?

01:17:23--> 01:17:25

The one who is intended

01:17:27--> 01:17:33

by the action. And that's where we have to be very careful

01:17:34--> 01:17:39

to do what we do, solely to please Allah subhana wa tada

01:17:40--> 01:17:49

that we have a class, sincerity and everything that we do. Now, there's an issue here that

01:17:51--> 01:17:55

I think is important just to discuss very quickly when we talk about NEA

01:17:56--> 01:17:58

and doing what we do for licensure.

01:18:01--> 01:18:05

That's because there's two levels to a class.

01:18:06--> 01:18:08

That is those actions that are accepted by a loss.

01:18:12--> 01:18:21

There are those actions which are purely for Allah, you have no other intention whatsoever.

01:18:22--> 01:18:25

And that is the highest level of a class,

01:18:26--> 01:18:29

the highest level of sincerity, and it's rewarded by last fantana

01:18:32--> 01:18:41

immensely. The second level is that you do it for Allah. And for another permissible reason.

01:18:45--> 01:18:47

We're coming up on the month of fasting.

01:18:49--> 01:18:59

Some people are going too fast, purely for last minute Allah to please Him. Others people are going too fast. And they're also going to be

01:19:01--> 01:19:02

losing weight.

01:19:04--> 01:19:19

It's permissible. It's, it's not for other than Allah. There is no other deity here, there's no other. It's as the scanner that you're using lt fer to LA and it's okay to have that in your mind. I'll give you I'll give you another example.

01:19:21--> 01:19:22

A person may

01:19:26--> 01:19:31

be dutiful, and keep very close relationships with their mother

01:19:33--> 01:19:59

solely for a last minute ad. So they want they want to please Allah by by having that kind of relationship with their parents. And others will do it because they know the Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says whoever wants his lifespan to to increase he wants his wealth to grow. Then let him keep good relations with his family members. Right now

01:20:00--> 01:20:22

This is not sure by any stretch of the imagination. This is a reward that was mentioned by the prophet Isaiah salatu salam. And if you do it for that reward, who's going to reward you? Allah subhanaw taala even the reason even the cause and the effect, that whole relationship between me being dutiful to my mother and my wealth increasing

01:20:24--> 01:20:34

where does that come from? The only way I even know that exists, is because I believe in the messenger Allah salatu salam, I believe in that cause and effect relationship.

01:20:36--> 01:20:42

People might make hedge solely to please allies with Dell and others make hedge for hedge and for

01:20:43--> 01:21:12

teacher for business last night, I mentioned it in the Koran. There is no harm in there. But it's not the same level of a class as the first level. All right. So what we should be striving to do is to make sure that we're doing everything that we do only for last minute and we're going to talk about the disease of rehab. After salata last on the shallow side, we're going to keep keep moving, and get through as many of these as we can.

01:21:14--> 01:21:17

Skip 19 because it's similar.

01:21:19--> 01:21:25

Skip 2021 This will

01:21:31--> 01:22:14

cause who's got the mic? Okay, this will go even above Robbie raviolo, on who mentioned the following event. I was behind the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam one day when he said, Oh young man, I shall teach you some words of advice. Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask ask Allah. If you seek help, seek help from Allah know that if the entire oma were together in order in order to benefit you with something they would not benefit you except with what Allah had written for you. And if they were to gather together to harm you with something they would not harm you except with what Allah had written

01:22:14--> 01:22:18

against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.

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

Like

01:22:21--> 01:22:24

take 30 seconds look back over this Hadeeth

01:22:25--> 01:22:38

think about what we talking about actions of the heart and figure out what it is that this Hadeeth is benefiting us in terms of actions of the heart with action of the heart.

01:22:39--> 01:22:42

Do we benefit from this howdy 30 seconds from that work with your partner please

01:22:59--> 01:23:01

talk in class talk in class it's good for you.

01:23:12--> 01:23:15

Wow, that was quick. Like what do we come up with here?

01:23:17--> 01:23:17

Sorry

01:23:21--> 01:23:26

tawakkol no doubt about it. Definitely this heading deals with tuukka What else?

01:23:30--> 01:23:33

reliance that's reliance on Allah to

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

believe in Qatar

01:23:37--> 01:23:40

type Okay, that is an action of the heart you believe.

01:23:41--> 01:23:43

Yes. Whoa, somebody just said something.

01:23:44--> 01:23:45

Consciousness.

01:23:47--> 01:23:48

Conscious card.

01:23:50--> 01:23:55

Oh conscious heart. Okay. Perfect. Actually Actually what I was going for with this one,

01:23:56--> 01:23:57

God consciousness

01:23:59--> 01:24:01

or what we will call an Arabic and Morocco.

01:24:03--> 01:24:14

The scholars many of scholars, how do you say how to handle Hadees Aslan Avi moville Murata? this hadith is a great Hadith related to El Morocco.

01:24:15--> 01:24:16

And Morocco.

01:24:19--> 01:24:20

I want you to

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

Has anybody here memorize the Quran?

01:24:25--> 01:24:31

You know why me ask? Anybody memorize the Quran? Don't be shy. hamdulillah somebody memorize the Quran What do we call him?

01:24:33--> 01:24:44

Call him a half we call him a half. memorize something. Okay. Once you look at this heavy for the lair, if for Allah. But

01:24:45--> 01:24:47

does that mean memorize Allah?

01:24:48--> 01:24:57

No. We can say memorize a law, but it also means to protect something. Can we protect the law?

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

Huh? No

01:25:00--> 01:25:03

Type, we're in a world that we get, be mindful of Allah

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

to guard his prohibitions to guard something like the word, the word in Arabic hafler, I want you to understand this hadith causes a lot of people problems, by the way, especially when it comes to translation of the law. What does that mean? And then they go and they give you very strange

01:25:26--> 01:25:28

ideas for

01:25:29--> 01:25:29

the word

01:25:31--> 01:25:37

happy law or the hat fair in the law, right? Who remembers that book I mentioned earlier,

01:25:38--> 01:26:21

the dictionary McCarthy's a logo by Evan Ferris. Here he says that everything with the word hat fat var, as its root, goes back to one meaning, which is more art to shape. And that is that you are considerate of something that you are considerate of something, when you are considered of something you are mindful of that thing. So this is why we call somebody who memorizes the Quran, we call him a half of why, because the Quran is on his mind, he is mindful of the Quran.

01:26:22--> 01:26:26

Consider it of the Quran, it's always on his mind.

01:26:27--> 01:26:28

So when a

01:26:33--> 01:26:35

when a Muslim is

01:26:36--> 01:27:08

young for the law, and he when he is mindful of Allah Subhana Allah, he does his best to please Allah azza wa jal, he is aware of the limits have Allah Subhana Allah so he doesn't go beyond them, as the brother mentioned, guarding those limits. He's mindful that allows us to wipe so he repents to him, when he falls short. I mean, all of these things come under the idea of being mindful of a loss of data. So when you are mindful of Allah,

01:27:09--> 01:27:30

Allah will protect you when you are mindful of Allah, you will find him in front of you, protect you to evaluate him, Allah to Allah mentioned that aligns with Joe will protect you in two broad ways. He's going to protect your deen for you. He's going to protect your limbs, your family, your wealth, all of these things.

01:27:32--> 01:28:07

He's going to protect you from falling into the Haram and that's the second category. So the first category is your worldly affairs. The second category is your dean. So he protects you from shubo hat or from doubtful issues. He protects you from shadow act, that is following your your lusts and your desires. Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. The one that is in front of you is your guide. So Allah subhanaw taala will guide you, he will direct you along that path.

01:28:11--> 01:28:20

This is where we're going to have to stop because it's it's acid time hamdulillah we've covered quite a bit. Can we go back real quick?

01:28:21--> 01:28:29

What actions of the heart have we covered? You can look back this is open book. What actions of the heart have we covered?

01:28:30--> 01:28:34

So love, fear, hope.

01:28:36--> 01:29:00

Sorry. sincerity and God consciousness sincerity and God consciousness we covered a lot of for Heidi dealing with loving, loving Allah and loving for the sake of Allah. And likewise with hope. There was the Hadith that we covered that deals with expecting the best. Having good expectations. good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:29:02--> 01:29:14

When we come back, I'm imagining we're going to have to skip down to Lumsden. Yeah, we'll skip down and Sharla after the break, we'll come to

01:29:15--> 01:29:20

this is actually quite important. We'll go to we'll go to 24

01:29:24--> 01:29:32

and then we'll skip to part three, which is 2828.

01:29:33--> 01:30:00

So we're going to go to 24 after the break, and then we'll do 28 and inshallah we'll we'll make good headway. In the last session inshallah, as we develop a personal plan towards keeping a sound heart when the lights are low, and also low, some of us robotic, and then Amina Mohammed, thank you for paying attention. And for those of you who fell asleep, I saw you go make Voodoo and get ready for success.

01:30:01--> 01:30:03

on the line on the line, I mean

01:30:04--> 01:30:18

shawanna you know, in the low activation he could overshadow under Mohammed and Rasulullah sallallahu. A while early, he was happy with sentiments esteem and cathinone, Naomi Deen, and my back this is part three, we're just going to cover the

01:30:19--> 01:30:41

last one or two Hadeeth that I'd like to deal with from actions of the heart and then we're going to move on to diseases of the heart and then developing a personal plan for ensuring a sound heart with the lights out. So if you can look at Hadith 24, everybody turned to Hadith 24

01:30:42--> 01:30:59

Abu hurayrah radi Allahu tada and who said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on rural Illa men who are as fellow men come, what at some guru Illa men who are for whom for who as doll and let us go near masala

01:31:00--> 01:31:04

this hadith is collected by Bukhari and Muslim

01:31:05--> 01:31:15

the prophesy Some say look at those who are lower than you and I and I want you to cross out the word financially cross that out.

01:31:18--> 01:31:23

Anything that relates to this dunya

01:31:24--> 01:31:28

you're supposed to look at those who are less than you.

01:31:30--> 01:31:39

And do not look at those who are higher than you. Lest you belittle the favors that Allah has conferred upon

01:31:41--> 01:31:54

you. I do want you to take 30 seconds, I want you to think about a very good title. Like we've come up with hope and fear and loving for lawn so what title would you give this Heidi? Take? 30 seconds you have 26 left?

01:32:13--> 01:32:14

Okay.

01:32:15--> 01:32:16

In the bank, what do you got?

01:32:18--> 01:32:19

Again?

01:32:23--> 01:32:25

Somebody translate that

01:32:26--> 01:32:27

I didn't mean train like like

01:32:30--> 01:32:30

to welcome.

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

Yes.

01:32:34--> 01:32:35

Content heart. Okay.

01:32:38--> 01:32:42

Gratitude, finished gratitude. Okay.

01:32:43--> 01:32:55

So, part of the worship of the heart is gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam said, as evenly embryo movement

01:32:56--> 01:33:05

in the umbra, hula, hula, hey, Melissa dareka elearning movement, that the affair of a believer is amazing. The prophecy, some say.

01:33:07--> 01:33:50

Everything for the believer is good. And that's only for believer, the prophecy Some say, well as a dedicated learning moment that's only for believing in a subject to some law checker of a can of fatal if, if good comes to him. something good happens to him. He's thankful he shows gratitude to a line, this is better for him, this is what's best for him, well in a sorbets, coup de la savara for Canada highroller. And if something some type of calamity befalls him, he's patient with that calamity. And this is good for him, because it's being rewarded by lost friends either. Either way, and it's all a test from the lost parents at it in any event, the prophet is alive. So we were gonna

01:33:50--> 01:33:52

title this heady, I would.

01:33:53--> 01:34:09

Gratitude is definitely the bed that we're looking for. But this heading is more than just telling you that you should be thankful. It's telling you how to be thankful. And that's and that's, you don't always find that you don't always find that from the

01:34:10--> 01:34:51

from the ahaadeeth itself. A how to the process of giving us a how to be grateful to a loss of habitat. How do you do that? You look to those who are below you and that's across the board. That is across the board. It is not just with money. A lot of brothers, a lot of brothers, will chastise their wives they'll say so and so cooks better than you. She cleans the house better than you. She does this better than talking about somebody else's, somebody else's wife. He's privy to the fact of what's going on. Oh, so and so has five children. She still keeps the house cleaner than you do.

01:34:53--> 01:34:53

So Pamela

01:34:56--> 01:34:59

This is a lack of gratitude, because you're comparing

01:35:00--> 01:35:06

apples and oranges. Number one, but the reality is, is that you're looking to somebody who is

01:35:07--> 01:35:43

above not looking to someone who is below. And that's going to make you not be thankful for lost parents, Alice NEMA. Okay, and this is across the board, same thing. Um, this is not just the brothers that do that, but I'm going to give the sisters a break. So the reality is, is that this happens with at different aspects of life. So yes, it happens with wealth, you know, you have a decent car, we'll have the lead get you where you need to go, it looks fine. But you see somebody else with a better car.

01:35:45--> 01:35:49

And so you start, and not only that, you make more money than they make.

01:35:51--> 01:35:55

How did they get a better car, okay, so now your heart starts getting attached to

01:35:56--> 01:36:39

the wealth, your heart is attached to dunya. And you start striving over this because you keep looking at somebody is always going to have something better than you. If that's what you look at. That is what your heart is going to be inclined to and you're not going to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we have to actively the prophets, I saw him said own guru look, not optionally, no, you need to actively look to those who are below you. Because it's going to make you more thankful to the number that Allah Subhana Allah has given you and more likely to help other people who are in need, because you'll start to see what the reality is. So it's very important that

01:36:39--> 01:36:41

we do that. So that we do not

01:36:42--> 01:36:48

belittle the favours that Allah Subhana who Allah has given us.

01:36:49--> 01:36:52

When it comes to the dean, however,

01:36:53--> 01:36:54

you don't do that.

01:36:55--> 01:36:58

You don't say, for example,

01:36:59--> 01:37:04

someone so only prays three times a day, at least I pray for law.

01:37:06--> 01:37:45

You can't do that. When it comes to the dean, you should be looking to those who are above you will be there leka Felly, SNF assoluta nafi soon, if you want to compete in something, that's what you compete it, you compete in the dean. So you may fast on Mondays and somebody else fast Mondays and Thursdays. So you want to you want to catch up with them. You understand when it comes to the dean let you look to those who are above you, but anything else related to the dunya don't look to those who are above you will lie. This is a very practical way to gain a lost hematol is love by being thankful for his blessings.

01:37:48--> 01:37:57

And that's how you're going to do and inshallah if you look at the next ad, which I'm going to read very quickly. This one we can title being content or contentment, right.

01:37:58--> 01:38:06

And we'll go right over the alongside and who said that the profit idea so that was Sam said Lisa, Lena and Catherine a lot of work in the Lena Lena knifes.

01:38:08--> 01:38:33

real wealth is not about how much you have. It's not about having an abundance of material items. real wealth is not about an abundance of material items. But wealth is the wealth of the heart, the wealth of the soul. In other words, you are content with what allies Magellan has given you.

01:38:34--> 01:38:35

Now,

01:38:36--> 01:38:37

think about this.

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

Somebody who is content. What does that mean? What What's another word we use for content,

01:38:45--> 01:38:47

satisfied, happy, happy.

01:38:49--> 01:38:58

If you are happy, then you're happy. I mean, I know that sounds pretty self evident. But if you're satisfied in your content, you're happy.

01:38:59--> 01:39:06

And if you're not satisfied, it doesn't matter how much you have, guess what? You're not happy.

01:39:08--> 01:39:26

So you really have to consider what this means here and take it and compare it to the other heading that we just covered on gratitude. Because you can amass more things, things that you thought you wanted, things that you thought would make you happy.

01:39:28--> 01:39:36

But if you still want more, you're not going to be happy. And so you have to have your own cutoff point where you're satisfied.

01:39:37--> 01:39:51

be satisfied with the last payment that has given you this does not mean that we don't go out we work hard we strive we should do all of those things. However, we have to learn how to be content with what Allah subhana wa tada has given us, like
