This is lesson number three looking at reflections upon selected daily supplications
compiled and collected by our shakable Muhammad Abdul Shachar haffi the whole lotta Allah.
In the previous week, we looked at the,
the supplications or remembrances connected to
connected to sleeping and waking up and inshallah today we will conclude the section on what we say when we awaken as well as look at what we say when we relieve ourselves.
but before we do that, we want to look at the lesson to study guide, which we had last week and we'll look at the questions that came and try our best to review them. Inshallah you have found it easy. Allah made it easy for you to review the first raw
Biss Mika, Allah Houma. Mootoo, WA here, five words. This Mika, Allah, Huma Mootoo. We're here now on the line keeping with the contractor. Good night. What is the meaning of the letter BA in the DUA said before going to sleep Bismillah, the BA in Bismillah is used for what?
asking Allah for protection, we said that the Bismillah is used for protection, the bar is for protection, what else?
We're asking also for goodness, now we're asking for goodness with that bar as well with Bismillah in general, but we mentioned two other specific meanings.
seeking help seeking protection, those are kind of in the same area. Number two, we said any that we are sleeping with the name of Allah subhanaw taala being the last thing that we mentioned, you know, I'm laying down with the name of Allah, being on my tongue, with the name of Allah being on my tongue. And the last one, it's with Allah subhanaw taala you need the affairs with him that I die and I wake up, it's with you, Allah subhana wa Tada you are the one in control, you are the one with power, you are the one who decides when I die, you are the one who decides when I live now, but the button general, we said goes back to those two meanings, the two meanings of protection and blessing
Now, number two, what two meanings are stated for living and dying with the name of Allah. Now we just answered that one, no. Number three, why does the author mention that we should say the reported do on before sleeping and upon wakening.
Particularly for sleeping, that we remember a lot and that the last thing that we say and shall we be resurrected upon seeing no
He said to the person, he said that a person who makes remembering Allah, the last thing he does before he sleeps, and the first thing that he does when he wakes up, that inshallah Allah will give the person to success, to be raised on the Day of Judgment, remembering Allah Subhan Allah to Allah. Now, and Subhan Allah, any, in surah Taha and sort of the Taha is a wonderful in it all the students of the Quran are wonderful in it, but some focus on certain meanings more than others. Allah mentions about those who turn away from the Quran. And it's a moment of reflection for us as it relates to the hereafter. Any reading about the hereafter, and learning about the hereafter and
reflecting on the hereafter in a person goes to sleep and realizes that he might not wake up. And that becomes a reality. You know, a person is remorseful, is regretful for how they spent their day. Any how many things could I have done better today? You know, and then a person has hope in his heart, you know, a lot give me one more day to make it better. And he has real hope, going to sleep that he might get a chance for another day. You know, as opposed to a person who has died, you know, and asks for another chance he's not getting one number. So Allah says,
woman out of I'm Vickery. Whoever turns away from my remembrance from this Quran for in Allahumma you should tell him one, he will have a horrible, miserable wretched life. Why not? Shoto who yo melty Amity Amma and he will be resurrected from his grave, blind.
And you imagine the terror that's already going to be in an individual's heart.
And then he wakes up blind like, it's already scary, and then I can't see anything.
And then he says, Rob De Lima hotshot attorney ama Welcome to basura. My Lord, the one who takes care of me, the one who created me, the one who manages my affairs. Why did you resurrect the blind? And I used to be able to see you gave me eyes in the dunya but now he resurrected me blind. He says Gallica attack can i Yeah, tuna fantasy to her, Our Ayat came to you. And you necesita you forgot them, you left them, you didn't give them any attention. You looked at them. And you as we say in English one, you turned a blind eye to them.
My Ayat were clearly in front of you, and you turned a blind eye to them. And so today, you will be forgotten as well.
Any you raise a race blind? Why? Because in the dunya
you were blind. In the dunya you chose not to look at the Ayat of Allah and benefit. And so because you did not use your eyes in the dunya and we took them away from you in the hereafter. You Why mentioned that point. He's raised up blind, because in this life, he was blind. He was resurrected in the same way that he died. Allah says in surah Tillis raw chapter number 17 of the Quran. Woman Can we have the Ummah for who will fill Earth Irati Amma, what about loose Avila whoever is blind in this life will be blind in the next and more unable to find his way. Well what Lusa Deena whoever is blind in this life, will be blind in the next and he will be more unable to find his way. And so a
person, this person in who didn't necessarily die without having eyes without having vision. He was resurrected, how blind because that was his state of being in his life, even though physically at the moment of death, he wasn't blind.
He wasn't physically blind when he died. But because blind blindness was his normal situation, blindness to the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that's what Allah gave him eyes for, to see the Ayat of Allah and benefit from them, because he didn't use them in that way in his life. Then he was resurrected, blind and so a person who is constantly
even if he dies, and he in a state where he might not have specifically in this instance, been remembering ALLAH,
any per se, but because that was his general condition, then the hope is one that Allah will raise him and he is remembering him SubhanaHu wa Tada. No. And so if a person is in the habit of remembering Allah in the morning and in the evening, then the hope is that Allah subhanaw taala will resurrect that person remembering Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, what, what three benefits? Does the author mention result from making one's first and last actions of the day remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala
that's what we just mentioned, you
what are the benefits that we mentioned?
Making once first and last actions of the day remembering Allah subhanaw taala?
I think this one that we just mentioned know, number five, in what two ways is the author say that's the sleeping person resembles the deceased
know, he's unable to benefit himself in the dunya and he's unable to benefit himself in in the hereafter. He's unable to benefit himself in the dunya and benefit himself for the hereafter. Number six, what is the wisdom of Allah of Alhamdulillah being the first statement upon awakening
Allah gives us life after death. And it's a way of showing appreciation for a loss of $1 giving us giving us life. It's a realization that having life again is a blessing, that having life is a blessing.
What most important benefit is a person prevented from when sleeping,
worship from doing righteous deeds. And we said that it might be possible for a person to get righteous deeds, from sleeping how
it is possible, we said it might be possible for a person to get righteous deeds while sleeping, how
intention that he person sleeps. And his intention to sleep is to strengthen himself to worship Allah subhanaw taala to be able to get up for prayer at night to be able to get up on time for Fajr to be able to take care of the responsibilities that he has in the day. Now, and what does the author mention as the as one of the greatest benefits of sleep, we'll be looking at that or we'll be starting there in sha Allah today.
And so if we go to page 16, of the book,
page 16 of the book.
The second paragraph there says from the greatest from the great benefits of sleep, is that it reminds the human being of death.
From the great benefits of sleep, is that it reminds the human being of death.
Any a person
is supposed to remember death, often.
And so, each time a person sleeps, that reality of death should come to the person's mind.
And what that does for an individual is it helps to put life in perspective. If a person is afraid that he's not going to wake up possibly in the morning, then what might be the last thing that he does, when he sleeps, remembering Allah and specifically
and specifically, any if a person believes he's going to die,
what emotion comes in a person's heart?
fear and regret, regret that what?
I didn't do more with my life. I didn't spend my time in a better way.
And so that regret that I could have done better even though I didn't it prompts the person to do what
he pushes the person to do what
I don't know if I'm gonna have to do more.
I don't know if I'm gonna have to do more. I don't know philos gonna wake me up. I know right now I got to go to sleep. There's no There's no getting out of this sleep, I gotta go. And I don't know if Allah is gonna put my soul back in my body. And so Allah forgive me, Allah ne pardon me for my shortcomings and for my errors, you know, and forgive me. And don't hold me to account for,
for my mistakes.
And so remembering and remembering death makes the person any reflective it makes him take himself to account before he goes to sleep. The last thing he does, is looks at his day and sees how well was he a worshipper of Allah? Where did he fall short? No.
And it's important for us to remember death and remember resurrection. Because that's one of the greatest things that gives life to our hearts.
One of the greatest things that gives life to our hearts and keeps us from wasting time. It helps us to benefit from the short lives that we have
is to remember that we're going to die and to remember that we're going to be judged in front of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah.
Allah mentions in Surah T
SOT chapter number 38 of the Quran, what's called a bad Anna Ibrahima was how can we aku lil ad will ever saw in last home behind the certain the current down.
Remember our slaves, Ebrahim and his heart, and Yaku those who had strength and those who had insight,
we made them special by giving them a special quality, vicar doubt that their hearts were always thinking about the hereafter.
In a class nombe Holly says that
we gave them a special quality, we blessed them with a special quality which was weren't that their hearts were always thinking about the Hereafter. And so because they were always thinking about the shortness of life and thinking about being judged in front of Allah subhanaw taala,
then they try to do something to change it. When a person's worried about something he tries to do what he can do to, to change what he's worried about.
And from the
no, let's move forward. So from the great benefits of sleep, we're on page 16, is that it reminds the human being of death, which is the inevitable end of every human being the destination of every living being except the EverLiving, who will never die. Only Allah subhanaw. Taala is the one who lives in whose life is perfect and does not die.
And so life is the foundational quality upon which all other qualities are derived. It's the quality of life that should be indicative that should indicate for us that should show for us the perfection or imperfection of the one bearing that quality. And so we know that human beings are deficient because
They don't control, they didn't control their origin. They're the beginning. And they don't control their end. And even the lesser the lesser death, which is what sleep we don't control.
Even sleeping and waking up, we don't control. And so what that means for us is that as human beings, we look at ourselves as deficient.
And we look at every other human being as deficient,
no matter how great, how strong, how powerful, someone may seem.
He's weren't deficient, because he doesn't control his own life.
He can't stop himself from dying.
And so if he can't do that for himself, then how is he going to do that? For anyone else? If he can't stop himself from being poor? How is he going to stop any from anyone else from being poor?
He can't control his own life.
And so he can't do anything for us.
And that's important for our Tawheed
that's important to our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we put human beings every human being in his rightful place, which is that what is lonely, deficient and weak
and by doing so, that saves us from
by recognizing the deficiency in others, and in ourselves that keeps us from what shift.
Because we recognize that no human being can do anything for me, without the permission of Allah. He can even control when he goes to sleep. And when he wakes up, so what is he going to do for me, I put my trust in Him. And then he falls asleep, His phone is off, something's wrong, he can't help me.
It keeps our hearts connected to Allah subhanaw taala. And number two, it takes away our own pride. Because we realize we're not much of anything either. No matter what Allah has blessed us with a wealth, of status, of friendships of connections, that those things don't mean anything in front of Allah subhanaw taala.
And so it keeps the person from what recognizing that Allah is perfect in his life, and in every other quality that he has. And human beings are deficient in their lives, and every other quality that they have. It saves us from what?
and pride and Sherkin pride keep an individual from what
Sherkin pride keeping individual from what from gender.
In Allahu Allah, you have fiddle, and you should have happy, ALLAH does not forgive that you commit should. But if it gives anything else that's lesser than that, to whom He wills.
No one will intergender who has what the smallest amount of kibble pride in his heart,
shirk, and Kibber Sherkin pride these are the two illnesses
that a human being
has to strive to free himself up and that Islam seeks to remove from the individual. And prayer is from the greatest
aides and assistants in that
to indicate to us from the Quran, the importance of the quality of life, and that this is the foundational quality
and that based upon the recognition of the perfection of Allah, his life
and the deficiency of our lives and based upon that, we have no pride and no shirt. Allah says in the Quran
in surah, T hawfinch chapter number 40 of the Quran who will hire you? La ilaha in LA who? For Abu meclizine Allahu Deen.
Who will Hi La ilaha illa who?
Further oho McCulley Sina who didn't, he is the EverLiving he is the one perfect in his life. La ilaha illa who nothing deserves to be worshipped besides him why? Because nothing else has that perfection.
And so call on Him
and worship Him, making your worship sincere and exclusive to him. Alhamdulillah Rabbil Alameen is in surah T raffia. And Allah says in surah T and for Khan chapter number 25 of the Quran what tell what Kal el el hijo de la de la jolla moot
and put your trust in the one
that has perfect life and does not die.
Put your trust in the one who has perfect life and does not die.
And so here
and dependency EOC and aboot boot, which keeps us from arrogance, yak and Listerine which keeps us from sheer keeps us from turning to other than Allah subhanaw taala. These two, these two illnesses are resolved by a person understanding this quality of being living. No.
And so every human being is weak because he has to die.
Similarly, in the awakening from sleep is a proof of the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala the one free from imperfections to resurrect the physical bodies after their death.
It is not that we believe that the souls alone will be resurrected. But Allah will gather the bodies themselves and the bodies themselves will testify in front of Allah subhanaw taala to the actions that the human being did. And so when we sleep and wake up, this is a testimony this is a reminder of what the resurrection
when we go to sleep and we
Die the lesser death and we wake up. It's a reminder to us that Allah is going to what resurrect us on the Day of Judgment.
For this reason, at the time of awakening, from sleep, the prophets of Allah Islam said Alhamdulillah, the Yana Bioderma, amat imagina when he lay him new shoe, for that reason, Allah says that the prophecy isn't him said when he awakened from sleep, all praise is to Allah subhanaw taala all praises to Allah who gave us life after he caused us to die, and unto Him is the new shoe is the resurrection. What he lay he a new shoe and I want you to hold on to that word, what's the word? New shoe what is new, shorter mean?
Resurrection, alright. He says, As for his saying, what he lay him new shore, and to Him is the new shore and to Him is the resurrection back to life. A new shore refers to when the human being will be raised up on the Day of Resurrection, and be given life after having been caused to die.
A new short refers to what the resurrection, when a person will be raised up after having and be given life after having been caused to die. Allah says in surah T A Doohan chapter number 44. Verse 3544 35, you can find it on the back of today's handout.
Yeah, letter number B. letter letter number B. Hmm. Letter B. of today's handout, Allah says
on this tongues of the Mushrikeen that they say in here in LA Mota. tunel Oola. Woman nah no be Moon sharing.
In here. Illa Mota tuna Oola and it's only our first death. One might not know be be ish. Be Moon shedding Moon shedding is the same route as new shoe or new shoe or moon sharing. It's only our first death and we will not be resurrected. What did I bring that ayat for? To show us the connection between moat and new sure that the machete came they say we only die one time. It's only our first death. Well, my No, no. Be Moon shedding. We're not going to be resurrected. And then they say to be Abba Aina in quantum Salatin, bring our fathers back. If you're truthful, huh? No, I'm challenging Allah.
So new short refers to resurrection after having died. He says we're on page 17. Hence, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam calls to our attention by mentioning the return of the awake state, after the state of sleeping, which is a type of death, as mentioned previously, the confirmation of the return to life after death.
And so here in this do I when we wake up, we say Alhamdulillah he led the piano all praises to
the one who caused us to live what does that mean? Who caused us to live?
What does that mean?
caused us to live how?
to wake up now. All praises to the one who gave us life. What does he mean given us life? waking us up? That Demma Americana, after he caused us to die? What does that mean? To sleep? Here he refers to sleep as death
when he lay him new shoe, and to Him as the new shoe of what doesn't assure resurrection, all praise to the one who awakened me who gave me life again.
After he caused me to die, falling asleep. And he's going to cause me to live after my greater death to
I praise the one who has brought me back to life who's given me another chance after he caused me to die to fall asleep. And one day he is going to wreck your resurrect me from my greater death. No. And so this is the second benefit
fit are another benefit of sleep. One benefit is it reminds us of death. And another benefit is that the process of sleeping and waking up is a reminder of the resurrection as well.
Any when a person remembers death, it's a reminder to him to do what?
To work harder,
to work harder to strive to make the most of his life.
And when he's reminded of his resurrection, he's reminded of taking himself to account of looking at what he's done in the day and seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and asking Allah subhanho wa taala, to give him to give us all a light reckoning.
On the Day of Resurrection, the day when all people
will stand before the Lord of All the Worlds. He says in this same vein, it is confirmed in elbow Hardy's book and edible mu fluid. From the hadith of Al Bara even ASIP may Allah be pleased with him or the Allahu Anhu who said, When the Prophet is sort of intended to sleep, he would put his hand under his right cheek and say Allahumma Dini, I've Arabic Yoma Tebah through the Baddeck Oh Allah protect me from your punishment.
Under day on the day that you resurrect your servants of Allah, protect me from your punishment on the day that you resurrect your servants
Allahu Makini or Dabiq, Yama, chyba athelny Baddeck Oh Allah save me from your punishment on the day that you
that you resurrect your servants and how is the person going to be saved from Allah's punishment
to His mercy and His forgiveness? And so this do I hear is a request for mercy Allahumma peeny Dabiq Yoma tuber Athenry Baddeck and so it shows what that again that the resurrection reminds a person of,
of the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and his need for the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa taala. And death reminds a person to push to push to try to do as much as he can with the life that he has. And Subhan Allah. Interestingly enough,
Alberto, even as it
were, the Allahu Anhu
seems to have several remembrances that he remembered from the promise of insulin related to sleeping,
related to sleeping and waking up. And so we mentioned that this these two do as that we mentioned, these to do that we mentioned
Bismillah Allahu Allah, a mu to archaea and Alhamdulillah the piano about them. Imagine that what he knew sure these two lie that we committed ourselves to memorizing that these two are reported by who they FDA insieme Bacardi and reported by Alberto Eben acid in Sahih. Muslim
and here was another dua from Alberta even as if also in,
in a Buddha would Allahumma Kenya Dabiq Yama tuber after a bad Oh Allah saved me from your punishment on the day that you resurrect your servants.
There's another dua that's collected in Bukhari and Muslim Subhan Allah in federal body by even Rajib there's sucked there's a there's a place where the a hadith certain Hadith are missing.

he mentions a dua that the prophesy Salam recommended that a person say before he goes to sleep I've
Put it on the other side of the
of the handout. It's Hadith number 247 insoluble karate 6313 insoluble karate and also 7488 inside because this is number letter C and also it's 2710 in Sahih Muslim I put the

Yeah, this is this is extra This is no awful, huh? This is actually this is not a part of the contract. But it's beautiful. But Robin as it mentioned, that the promise that Islam said that if a person intends to lie down and go to bed that he should perform boo boo.
He should perform Moodle and then he should lay down on his right side. He should perform Moodle and he should lie down on his right side. And he should say Allahumma a slum to none FC like Oh Allah, I've surrendered myself to you. I've submitted myself to you. Well for one to Emory Lake, and I've turned my affair over to you what what Jeff to what he Lake and I have turned my face towards you.
What else to worry. He like
in my I've turned my back to depend upon you to be supported by you.
Rock button Warahmatullah he like out of fear and out of hope for you.
lamella Jaya wala manger Minca Illa e Lake. There's nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide except to you.
Meant to be keytab you can levy and Zelt.
I believe in the book that you have sent down.
We're being a beacon levy ourselves and in the profit that you sent. And the promise of a slim said wa jal who are Hera ma Taku. And make it the last thing that you say any before going to sleep. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to memorize this and to help it to be the last thing that we say before we go to sleep. He said for emitter, Mitra and fitrah if you die, you die up on the fitrah on the natural way that Allah subhanaw taala created the human being in submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala
well in US batter or sub Saharan and if you wake up then you have gained a huge yearning, a huge blessing and a huge benefit.
What I want to focus on here just briefly, is what a man will call to be a bull I Bassel occur to be mentioned in his shop. He mentions that any making wudu in lying down on one's right side. A person is positioning himself as if he's laying in his grave.
Any a person is washed
before he's placed in his grave. So a person makes will do before he lays down and I encourage you don't be lazy.
Don't be lazy. Get in the habit of making wudu before you lay down to sleep.
The prophesy sort of said as mentioned in the Sooner of Abbey Road is the Timo

remain firm and your Islam and you won't be able to do everything you're going to have shortcomings and know that the best of your actions is prayer.
And only a believer stays in a state of purification.
Only a believer regardless will do all the time.
And so even at the time of sleeping a person makes will do. And this is from the from the rebar This is from guarding the borders as the promises that I mentioned is Babel will do Alan McHattie making wudu when it's difficult when you don't want to when it's uncomfortable, and this is one of those moments a person wants to lay down lie, make boo
and then lay down on your right side the same way that you will be placed
in the grave. And then these things that a person mentions are the very things that he's going to be questioned about if he doesn't wake up
Allahumma a slim to NFTE like I've submitted myself to you this is Islam I didn't look at Islam
For what to Emery like and I've turned my affair over to you why because you're my Lord and I depend on you with just to which he like I've turned my face to you. Well jet to the hurry Lake and I've put my back depending on you. There's no way to turn

And then to wiki tab you can see the end result. I believe in the book that you sent down to age when the Wii killed ourselves Mallaby when the Wii U
when the B uke
I believe in the profit that you sent.
I've submitted to you in Islam. I depend on you, you're my Lord. And I believe in your profit. You and your person hopes that if this is what he says before he goes to bed and he dies in his sleep, that Allah will give him the till feat to answer those questions in his grave.
The process of him said if you die, you've died on the fitrah you've died in the natural state that a loss of one's data created the human being and how did the law create the human being? Knowing his Lord? Unless the ROB dico? Am I not your Lord call do Bella she hidden they said of course. We testify to that. No. So that's the Hadith Well, Bara even as even so again, it seems to be on the bottle. I mean, as it seems to have given real attention to what the f code related to sleeping and, and waking up? No, because we have now three from him that he reports.
moving on to before entering the bathroom.
I think it's important before mentioning the eschar as it relates to entering the bathroom, that we reflect on two things.
Number one, that Islam covers every aspect of a human beings life.
That Islam covers every aspect of a human beings life. And that's from the blessings of Islam. It's not a Saturday, Sunday event.
Every single aspect of our lives is regulated by Islam.
What we do when we wake up,
how we start our day,
asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for help. What we say when we get in our car, what we say is we get dressed, what we say as we enter the bathroom and relieve ourselves, what we say as we head out the door, on our way to work on our way to school.
Praying throughout the day, what we say when we eat lunch, what we say when we eat breakfast, what we say when we finish eating, eating, all the aspects of a person's day in Islam are regulated.
A lot isn't leave us for a moment to ourselves. Allah is so concerned about our salvation or our success, that there's not a moment of our lives and he leaves to us. He regulates every single moment of our lives, he tells us what we can do every single moment of our lives that we want so that we're successful.
Number two, from the benefits of remembering
Allah subhanho wa Taala is gratitude.
Because a Muslim is remembering Allah throughout the day,
he is beginning to remember the blessings of Allah throughout his day. We just say a person goes to sleep. And he recognizes the blessing of time. Because he knows I might lay down I don't I might not have any more time. This might be it. And this is all I have. Is this all my life. This is all I've done for the day for my lifetime is this all I'm meeting along with,
you know, and that next day, if Allah blesses him to wake up,
he appreciates Inshallah, the day that he has.
He remembers the shortcomings of yesterday, and at least he has in his heart I want to make today better.
And so a person sleeps,
and it's a blessing. And a person wakes up, and it's a blessing and a person eats and it's a blessing in a person put on his clothes. It's a blessing because he's remembering Allah eats at each of these intervals. And so the remembrance of Allah it weren't, it evokes sugar, it places sugar and gratitude in our hearts. And as mentioned in Surah Al Baqarah. This is also on the handout letter D. On the backside of the handout,
chapter number two sort of bucket a verse 153. Allah combines between remembering him and being thankful to him. Allah says fifth Cutrone
Kotoko remember me, and I will remember you. Wish Karoly will attack for whom? And be grateful to me and don't be ungrateful, remembering Allah.
remembering Allah is from the greatest means by which a person can be more grateful of Allah subhanaw taala.
And the person who forgets the blessings of Allah also forgets to want to be grateful.

Text of the Hadith whenever the prophesy Salam intended to enter l holla. Whenever he intended any This is before going inside whenever he intended to enter the L holla. l holla. means an empty place, a place where there's not people and not any amenities that people benefit from an empty place designated for using the bathroom.
Previously, people use the bathroom outside and they would have any secluded designated places where they would do that. And so when a person would go to this place, and for us in present day times, it would be our bathrooms in our homes.
When he would use when he would enter an empty place to answer the call of nature to use the bathroom. He would say Allahumma inni, an older bika Minal, who will think well how about if Allah I seek refuge with you, I take refuge with you from the evil male and female spirits.
Explanation of the Hadith we're on page 19. The saying of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Bismillah means in the Name of Allah, I entered the bathroom to achieve every benefit and repulse every harm.
You need the word Bismillah. The shape is mentioning here that Bismillah is used for two reasons. The first one is to what
achieve benefit to get the good things that I need.
And it's also to do what to protect me from harm, to bring the good and to protect from the evil. And one of these instances is when using the bathroom. What is the good for me in the bathroom? Is there good in the bathroom?
Yeah, what is it? Removing that filth from my body?
Removing that filth from my body.
in a dignified way.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from ever having to be in the hospital
and having to be subjected subjected to someone else
having to take care of that for us all to be live in the attic
Allahumma EyeFi Nafi up there Nina, Oh Allah, please preserve for us our health and our bodies. Now it's a Nima any a part of Bismillah is asking a lot to remove that filth and to protect the functionality of these organs.
Because not everybody is blessed with it.
Or to have to use a bag
It has to be emptied in how many blessings do we take for granted?
until they're gone? We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to appreciate his blessings and they do not take them away from us because of our ingratitude now, and so the Achieving of the benefit is that a person is able to remove this harm from himself. And the protection from harm is that he be bothered and annoyed and harmed by these unclean spirits that are in these areas.
He says he's saying Allahumma inni and obika means I call on you, Allah, seeking protection, refuge and shelter in you. The only one who has power over everything.
Allah when you say, oh do Vika, Oh Allah, I take refuge with you. He says I call upon you Allah seeking protection, refuge and shelter in you, the only one who has power over everything. And so that statement I owe them because I take refuge with you is an indication of human
deficiency and weakness. It's humbling. Allah, I need you to protect me.
Allah, I need your help. I can't protect myself.
Allah only you can protect me in this situation.
It's upon Allah, I mean a person using the bathroom is in a very vulnerable position. It's very hard to protect oneself, any from Shayateen from the shell think of the jinn and the sheep I think if human beings, when a person is relieving himself.
Just as a side note, that story has come in the Syrah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where it's mentioned that the Prophet saw them sit who they were the Allahu Anhu on a mission during the Battle of the Trench to find out news about what the Quraysh and their allies were doing.
And so he said, like to learn to hate your own, don't get them stirred up, don't do anything that gets them worked up again. Because their hearts, the pagans, their hearts was already like they was losing. They were losing spirit, and he was getting ready to go home. But the problem is I don't want to know what was going on with him. And so he said, listen, just find out what's happening. Don't do anything to get people riled up.
So who they went, and he was able to disguise himself well, where people didn't know who he was. He said, I saw a boost of yen. And he was the head of the pagans at that time.
He said he was using the bathroom.
He said and all I had to do was take out an arrow.
He said I could have got it.
He said I almost did. He said but remember that the prophesy Salim said, not to hate you. Don't do anything to stir him up. He said so I put it back. And I left
a boo Sofia and later on became a Muslim.
Allah decreed he wasn't going to die at that moment. He was in a state where he was vulnerable. And he didn't know his own life could have been taken at that moment. But Allah subhanaw taala weren't protected him and gave him the opportunity to repent.
And so a person recognizes this lots of times when we are vulnerable, we can protect ourselves. So seeking refuge with Allah subhanaw taala reminds us even in this simple situation, I can't protect myself. So I need a loss upon what data to protect me. And so it's humbling. He says he's saying, Mel, who will see well, how about if he says a Houthi or al Houthi? So there's two ways to say it. You can say Houthi Houthi. There's an EU on the ban, Houthi or al whom feet and the Houthi or al Houthi. Either one is okay. He said both readings are correct, he says is the plural of beef. And how about it, he says is the plural of cubbies. Houthi and Hoopes is the plural of cubbies and hubba
is the plural of Sabetha
meaning male and female evil spirits.
I seek refuge with You Oh ALLAH from the male and female evil Jin.
Oh Allah I take refuge with you from the male and female evil spirits because these creatures they inhabit these filthy areas.
He says These two words have also been interpreted any herbal fee will come out if as evil and evil doers who
is evil, and hubba is evil doers and evil souls. And so the toilet or the bathroom is one of the places of abode for evil spirits. And on that note, it's important that because it's a place of evil, and because it's a play in an evil, not that you're doing sins there, but that is a place of disgust. And it's a place where you cannot
that a person should spend the least amount of time in the bathroom as possible.
Not reading newspapers, books, playing games, searching your phone, answering phone calls, last
person doesn't do those things. This is a filtered view, you get in you get out, whatever, whatever else is going on in the world can wait right now.
It's a horrible state to be in a taking care of other business besides the business that you're in. Yeah, it's not a place of recreation. I mean, we try to make it comfortable and nice and smelling nice and whatnot. But that is a disgusting place. And so a person spends as little time as possible, only the amount of time is necessary and then come out, because it's a place where Allah's name is not to be remembered.
It's a place where a last name is not to be remembered. And a place where last name is not to remember, it's not a place that a Muslim wants to be.
A place where last name is not to be remembered is not a place where a Muslim wants to be. No.
He says, and having been hired last Kalani. May Allah have mercy on him mentioned in his explanation of Al Bukhari, interred in entitled fettled body there in some of the narrations of this Hadith from Abdulazeez, even Suhaib. He's the narrator from NSMB Malik, it has the words
if you enter the bathroom, any either delta L Hana if you enter the bathroom, then you must say Bismillah AR o the bIllahi min Allahu bofi will come out if you hear he's mentioning that the term Bismillah in the narrations in Bukhari and Muslim Bismillah did not come at the beginning of this hadith of this vicar. But in another narration outside of Makati and Muslim the term Bismillah comes in even harder than Escalante who is a mountain when it comes to the science of Hadith. He says that the chain is according to the condition of Imam Muslim. It's a strong chain meaning that this Bismillah should be said, even if it doesn't come into narration of Bukhari and Muslim. Also, he
says saying Bismillah upon entering the bathroom is also confirmed. So we're bringing added support since it didn't come in Bukhari Muslim is also confirmed in the hadith of Alibaba Vitalik radiola, who I know who said the prophecies that I'm said, as similar to the Bane account, or a baina, kubina or going to the gym, or being a Unigene or Ross, many Adam II that Allah and your Kuru Bismillah, aka makalah SallAllahu sallam, he says that the screen the sitter, which is between the eyes of the jinn, and the private parts of the human beings, getting the gym seeing you naked, what stops them from being able to see you in a naked state when you enter the bathroom, or even when a person just
ropes takes off their clothes and their own bedroom is to say what Bismillah
Bismillah is a protection from the Jain being able to see an individual when he is Disrupt. And so he's using this as evidence to say what that before you go into the bathroom, you want to say Bismillah and you also want to say Allahumma in the elder bika Minal Houthi will come back. And these are two different reasons, two different two different realities. We're saying our older, weaker, middle, hopefully we'll have that as for what
to be protected from the harm of the jinn
to be protected from the harm of the jinn, how can they harm you
trip and make your urine splash on you.
Or maybe make you slip in the bathtub.
They can be different things that can happen and he these are evil creatures that want to cause you harm in their life has bent on causing you harm and they are real
and they are real but they have no power without being any outside of the power of Allah subhanaw taala and so a person has to do what he has to seek refuge with Allah subhanaw taala Bismillah on the other hand does what
oh, it provides a screen it provides a cover. This Milan provides a cover Allah who made me out to become an unhealthy welcome if provides protection
from their harm, and Bismillah provides a cover from them being able to see you. So these are two different two different things. emammal gauhati One of his chapter headings in Sahih Bukhari
is bad at test Mia to Allah Cooley how we're in Wendell Wicca.
He said chapter saying Bismillah in every situation,
even when being intimate with one's wife,
saying Bismillah in every situation, even when being intimate in one's with one's wife. So here, a memorable karate in this chapter heading is saying what that in every situation a person can say. Bismillah in every situation, a person can say Bismillah seeking a loss, seeking what what do we mean when we say Bismillah? What are we seeking?
A loss protection and
his blessing. We say Bismillah in general, this was at the very beginning of the exploration of the Saudi Bismillah is a statement of protection seeking protection and the statement of seeking blessing.
No, he said, if one of the narrator in one of the narrations of Makati, it says if someone intends to enter
its meaning is that you should say this application before entering the bathroom and not after entering it. Yes, it should not be said Bismillah should not be said when a person enters the bathroom. And there is a slight difference of opinion amongst the scholars about this. But the most prevalent opinion appears to be what the chef has a firm which is that the bathroom is not a place to to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophecy sort of wouldn't even give salaams back any when he was not in a state of will do. No. And so again, the idea is, is that these remembrances remind us of our own weakness of our need for a loss of point of view to Allah, and also our means of us
being grateful that a person relieves himself. And he remembers that he needs a loss of power without his protection, that allows upon what Allah has blessed him to be able to have in his body to be functioning in such a way that he can relieve himself in a dignified way, and doesn't depend on anyone else. To do that, for him. It's a blessing that we do not perhaps
appreciate enough and that inshallah will lead us into our next remembrance which we will go into next week, which is very, very short, huh? This is this is in the mallows reuseable Yeah, so this week, you got a long one. Yeah, basically Allahumma
Bismillah Allahu Allah in the hour to become an uncompleted Kaaba, there's gonna be some work. Yeah, but next week, who Franek like ah, so with the difficulty comes to ease the ease is coming next weekend sha Allah
