Psalm 100 Learn I don't want to stay in on a stuck fiddle when other game is surely unforeseen. I will say to me knowing the law, follow the Law No, I mean you'll do follow the law which had to alert you knowing the law I don't know surely could overshadow and on one hand with an outdoor water sort of solid law highly. While early he was happy he was so limited Stephen Catellani Naomi Dean, unmarried. Today inshallah is the fifth reading of
Imola gems the journey to Allah, Allah Muhammad JioFi, say Adonijah. And
we started off with the four different narrations, the Ebola, Jim has mentioned of the Hadith. And the main principle that has been covered from the Hadith and throughout this book is what was that main principle?
Okay, can I get the paradise just on your own everywhere anybody except for that?
You wanted the agenda
so that no one will enter Jannah
because of their actions independently
Illa yet have a mother in law who be Rama T as the prophet it is not even me unless Allah subhanaw taala. What encompasses me with his mercy? Okay, and what does Iran want us to two main things that Iran wants us to
benefit from this principle?
to humble yourself, so do not allow the good deeds that you do to make you arrogant, don't allow them to make you arrogant. Because that arrogance that comes as a result of a person doing good deeds, and then feeling proud, because of the good deeds that they have done, that may be a greater sin,
than some of the major sins that people may commit outwardly, right, that internal sin of Kibera, is even greater than many of the major sins that people commit outwardly. And so recognizing then, that even the good deeds that a person does is what is from the grace and mercy of Allah subhana, who was added, extend these to the second thing that they will want us to get from this principle, which is, gratitude, expound gratitude for what?
To be able to carry out, right.
Truly showing sugar and thanks to Allah subhanaw taala for having guided you to, to doing righteous actions. And what we also get from this hadith is, is not an encouragement to not do anything. The opposite is the case. That's why the prophet Isaiah salatu salam says that, you know, the RO hottie Bill hardwoods, he was, well, he was shaving men Adonijah right. So while Castile cast the tableau, and he take that moderate path, the prophesy some of us say, even though your actions alone independently, are not going to save you, they are a means of attaining the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and these are the actions that you should be doing these are the times that you should be
doing them. Right, which we're going to talk which we're actually in the middle of talking about right now. Which is which is what
the early part of the morning, what row half
the evening, the end of the day was shaped him in a dungeon, the Dodgers won
the latter part of the night, right. So so the browser is Salam is telling us when the best time to do to do actions is what are the what are those best times one of the best times to perform actions and also
the best, the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala and they are one
those that are most consistent even if they are few.
so appropriately, anyway, we when the book is titled, translation of the journey to Allah, because the prophet Isaiah science with Sam in this hadith is laying out this principle. They're laying out what are the best deeds to do when's the best time to do them? Right. And what we talked about in the previous lesson
the author went extensively into the matter of the heart and how important the heart is how important intention is, as we are developing our worship of Allah subhana, who was, and we stopped.
From what I remember, we stopped on page 55. Is that correct? It's one of these three times out of these three times is that kind of where we stopped, like, shake Moqtada if you can start there's like a little favor
right away today,
according to own Quran has calendar,
it's the 29th of the grad.
I think some of them saying is the 28th Willow Adam, and he mentioned with exactly what June and he that whatever way it goes down. And he, it's, it's very possible that tomorrow evening, right, could be the first night of the first time the first 10 days of that.
So it's important that
not just the the Sunon and recognizing you know, the the EAD card or the dikkat, the specific deck of that,
that is legislative for us to do in those first 10 days of the head, just increasing and good deeds in general, but also recognizing that spirit of sacrifice
that is important, you know, that we get ourselves used to and to be honest with you.
I mean, these are some of the longest days of the year. So he says that his latest time, foragers is earliest time going into the masjid for a shot and Fajr is more difficult during this time of the year than it is for example, in in a winter, you know, when you have those long breaks in between but, but sacrifice, right, that's what this is best with these 10 days especially, should remind us of the sacrifice that we need to make any for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala followed by the mercy of Allah through our teacher who said Dr. Taha Alfredo law, we are directed to read the journey to a law, but even Majid al humbly Rahima who law
Out of these three times,
out of these three times there are two which are at the beginning of the day and the end of the day. Okay.
So what are the three times again,
aloha and Adalja. So, out of those three,
to represent the daytime, one at the beginning of the day, and the other at the end of the day,
the one at the beginning of the day is a loved one, the very beginning of the row has towards the end of the day. Now, that's what he's saying here, right? These two times, at these two times one finds both obligatory and optional actions to do. The obligatory actions or the actions are the prayers of budget, and the apostle and these two are the best prayers of the five daily prayers. These are the prayers pray at the two cool periods.
Dane sondland birthday
and whoever preserves these two prayers shall into paradise. It is said about both these prayers but they are the middle prayer, but the correct opinion will allow Adam is that the middle prayer is salata, Lhasa Yanni salata loose. Now, as for the optional D then it is to remember Allah after the fajr prayer until the sunrises and after Assam until the sunsets there are many texts concerning the excellence of this okay. So, this here put your highlighter on this, the option will be
so, so what I just mentioned is that there are obligatory acts and they are optional acts. The obligatory acts of course, are the most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala right, as it comes in the Hadith a lowly monad le Willie and for cut to Bill harp and whoever
harms a worthy a close friend of mine, then he is announcing or I'm announcing war with that person, but identity will help.
And then Allah azza wa jal goes on saying I didn't consider myself to be che and I haven't really yet remember, remember, I've taught to Wiley there is nothing that the serving can draw closer to me.
That is more beloved to me than that which I have made obligatory. So Fudger furniture
Prayer and the answer prayer are those obligatory acts at that time
and then there's an optional Act which is the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala
after fajr prayer until sunrises
and that doesn't mean that a person is doing for example, specific kinds of vehicle. There are without a doubt
those do eyes and as car that are known as car a Saba well must have car Saba while Messiah those supplications that had done in the morning and the evening, the morning here, at cada so back refers to after budget until the sunrises and UNOSAT refers to after salata, Lhasa, until the sun sets, and we cover it some of the the ayat to indicate the
excellence of remembering ALLAH SubhanA who were to add it at that time.
It been a Salah
Rahim Allah, Allah to Allah He said whoever consistently
Makemake notice here, he says whoever consistently says the prophetic as car
of the morning and the evening
along with the supplications that are specific to time and situation
is among those who mentioned Allah often with their Kadena Allah Cathy Iran with Thank you, right?
Allah azza wa jal praises them with their keeping alive. But they cannot those who mentioned those men and women who mentioned a lot often even a Salah by him or lie says that they are the ones who consistently say, the prophetic at the top of the morning in the evening, not just something that somebody makes up. But it's something that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam himself said
along with the supplications that are specific to time a situation what do we mean by supplication specific to time and situation? What does that mean?
Yeah, give it give me an exam. Like we say we you put your clothes on, right? Would you say would you put your clothes on? Would you say when you finish making we'll do what you say before you enter the restaurant. Right? Those are the eyes that are specific to times and situations. Right. So on that on that topic, I just want to take a brief
a brief break right not from the book.
But to talk about this for a minute because it is extremely important that you're sourcing the right places for
for this so buckle up Jose Rahim Allah, he has he has a very small book.
I want to say it's called F connoisseur by homeless and he manages like 23 Different do eyes indicates that the prophesy someone would do in the morning even they have been authentically reported on the prophet Isaiah so I have to say but besides that, for those of you who who know Arabic
I'm an alone well Leila
an essay so I have a sunnah
is without a doubt any one of the earliest and best books written on this subject.
alone will later
and those some of the roadmap have mentioned that this is part of an the SAT is a Sunon l Cobra. It seems that the correct opinion of Allah who it was that it was his own book, and their reasons for that. And the reasons that study alumni have come to that conclusion. And it is very well written and thorough. I'm gonna do one Leila by an essay. And basically everybody who came after him either benefited from him or benefited from his student who has a book by the same name. I know he's still won
by even a Sunni
Okay, he was he was even he was in the Saudi student and he also wrote a book call. I'm gonna learn one later
email Mmm No, we
basically copied his book and added on tonight not copied verbatim.
But kind of took a lot of that added some things to it refined it and explained that a little bit like it's not a it's not a shelter in and of itself but there's you know some little gems and nuggets that that he may have no we did to add to this and he called his book what anyway now
on less car I never know these are books you want
write them down and you go find
the loans to find most most of us online
and as car no
important book that came after that, and this was actually translated into English
is Kelim a play by Sheikh Salman Tamia, Rahim Allah.
Allah Kenema play.
It's translated, I think, it says the goodly word or something like that
this one is available. Like I said, this was available in English, I say the same and take me out on him a lot. And then that was explained by shapeless lambs, most famous, his most famous student was, who was
he explained? He explained that we can't even tell you in a book called and why not?
And while I will say you
were able to say
book is phenomenal. I will say you is probably and if it was only one book of Epcot
that you would that you would rely on the Bible to see you tomorrow and it's not translated. Let me take that back. The beginning of the book is translated into English as a good decent translation mashallah, but it's not complete. I don't remember what it's called.
But it's available, you can find it on Amazon.
Okay, and again, if you know Arabic, it is worth your time to listen to shake up the results and better this shot of a viable aside. So shake up the exact that the explanation of why we'll say it was an explanation of kind of a play, and it's worth your time.
And if you just spent the rest of the next couple years listening to it and implementing it, Danny, you will be spending at least an hour of your day in the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah at least an hour of your day.
Just your tongue being wet with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not again it's it's different when it's the demise of the prophesy son of himself
so I highly recommend that
if you don't know Arabic You can still access and can't even play it which is a goodly word and in that beginning part of the explanation of immuno came in is worth it even though it's not fully translated is worth it reasonable to say you
know the last book that I mentioned inshallah is tougher to deck it in by shall Kenny Rahim Allah which is highly beneficial as well
I'm saying this because I think that these and these are all books of the past in terms of today the most popular book of the good across the board or the Vicodin
is his no Muslim like everybody used to walk around that they pocket orange orange book, apparently your pocket
like most popular book ever Subhan Allah Islam Muslim
and then one of the better and in my opinion, only one of the best effect and the books of the Quran as calm in contemporary times is filled as well as caused by shake up the recycled better for you the hola filk as well as car,
Emerton and different sections of that book have been translated by Sheikh Abu Mohammed does all highlight
and made available to the English speaking population which otherwise would not have been available. And so there are sections of the law sections that were pulled out the morning and evening as car from that highly beneficial.
The car that is specific to Salaat Annie
which is hot, which is so important because you're sure and your Salah, and it depends on your ability to focus.
And you only focus when you're not running through it like routine
It was routine, you don't need to focus because it's just, it's habitual, you're just doing it, you're not focusing at all. But now when you switch it up, and you're not saying the same thing and every and in each of your salon, that's one of the things that aids in the short. So again,
I need a point to get back to where we were, which is the edcon that are after slot television and the earth card that I have to sell out to Lhasa. And if this is something that'd be easily likely to add, will help in your journey to ALLAH SubhanA who was hired. And so, in the sitting in the masjid, in fact, from selected fidget, until sunrise is highly recommended. Many texts that deal with that particular
virtue of sitting in a message from from after societal failure until the sunrise.
Willow Adam, as a whole lot more can be said about that, but was stopped in shallow time former chief abdomen.
Likewise, there are many texts concerning the remembrance is to be said in the morning and evening. And considering the excellence of one who remembers Allah, when awakening and when sleeping.
And then Omar medulla Hassan reports that the Messenger of Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, Son of Adam, remember me for an hour in the beginning of the day, and an hour at the end, and I will forgive you your sins committed between them, save any major sins for which you must repent, is how his life and if you'll remember
that the methodology of Evil Elijah, in his books, is that once he establishes
the point that he's trying to make,
then he may begin to mention secondary texts, if you will,
supporting evidence that support the point that he's already established, which is what here what point is he really trying to point out to us here,
the excellence of worshiping Allah, at the beginning of the day, and the end of the day? And what did he primarily use to establish that
all of those ayat from the Quran, that's what he used to establish that point, which is the excellence of remembering Allah, the beginning of the day and the day. So humbly, like that point has been established. It is, there are other things that come in here, that if Elijah was going to mention them, because they have been mentioned,
not necessarily that he believes that this is a he, or this is an actual, you know, virtue that has been established. But the fact that the majority of the total amount of Hadith did not see a problem with mentioning Hadith. And we're not sure the the thoughts. So in other words, we're not talking about a hadith that are that are mobilized, or there had been any that are lies in and of themselves, where somebody in the chain of narrators is considered to be a liar. Or, in other words, those Hadith that are not extremely weak, they'll mention them as a means of of encouragement, but not as a means of establishing independently that this virtue is actually
a reality or actually been reported authentically on the Prophet I do have a lot to say. So we can't say that by remembering Allah Subhana Allah in the beginning and end of the day that Allah azza wa jal will just forgive the sins however, we do know that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said salah, two humps and the five daily prayers what on the blind either mom or dad would you mind as you might have felt? I've been on my Estonia it's in Kobe. Right? So the five daily prayers and Ramadan to the next Ramadan, Jeremiah Juma the XP the sins that are is this is explanation for sins that were committed in between them. As long as one avoids the major sense and that Heidi's authentic.
The seller would place greater emphasis on the end of the day than the beginning. It no more Baddeck No more bad up said. It has reached us that the one who remembers Allah at the end of the day will be recorded as having performed remembrance throughout the day.
Above Gerald pronounced Abuja, out jelly.
Jelly, jelly, said it has reached us that Allah exalted essay, the sense to the lowest heaven during the eve of every day, and looks at the deeds of the children of Adam. Of course affirming any of the lives with those attributes, and it requires authentic requires revelation. So this statement from Mr. Dell, it has reached us that's not Revelation, we cannot affirm that aligns with and he descends at the end of each day. Now, one of the sell offs so
Abu Jafar already in a dream saying to him tell Abu hasm Ella Raj that is the aesthetic and Heidi persecute Perspicuous should be purse capacious person that Allah and His angels look to your gathering in the evenings. It seems clear that Apple has him used to narrate stories to the people at the end of the day. Okay, so narrate stories. He's translating here,
Kenny, a kazoo and an SE F on the heart, the more
in their language, and
in their terminology didn't just mean telling stories. It was a wise and gentle amount of saying that people reminded them of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in general, that he would do this at the end of the day, that he was specified that portion of the day to do so.
A Hadith mentioned remembrance after fajr is more beloved than freeing for slaves and remembrance after acid is better than freeing eight slaves. Can you go and read the footnote on that? Number 103 But from Iman Achmed Rahim Allah, because it's a hadith on the authority of Abu mana, with the same meaning and help me volume 10 Page One a four it said that it's not warehousing. Although
there are some there are some Hadith that mentioned specific thicket of Allah Subhana Allah
throughout the day that is better than free intense leaves and so forth. This particular one a low Ireland's its authenticity.
No, the end of the day of July is better than its beginning due to its containing an hour where in this application is answered, know that
the majority of the scholars on this particular even though there are multiple opinions on this particular topic, which is what is that our during July when die is accepted, even hedge up
over 20 opinions from not mistaken on this particular issue.
But the majority of the scholars say that it is the last hour of July, the last hour, July, which means that that
that last part of the day, therefore, is better than the beginning part of the day, if that's what they looking at when it when they're talking about. It's Katie, or as being better.
No doubt this next part, the end of the day, or the end of the day of alpha is better than the beginning. Because the end of the day is the time for standing. The end of the night is better than the beginning of the night as was stated by the self, and they adduce the Hadith of the descent as proof. What did he mean by the Hadith of the descent? What are they talking about there?
When it comes anybody with Matt,
during the last night, we're right Allah, Allah azza wa jal, the prophet it just aligns with Sudan. So then Allah azza wa jal descends in the last third of the night.
Any Well, you know, the end he calls out hadn't been stuck waiting for other fella is the only one seeking my forgiveness of enemy forgive him to the end of the Hadith. This hadith is multifaceted. It's narrated by over 30 of the companions of the Prophet it is Salatu was set.
Right? So So because of that, they say that the latter part of the night is better than the first part of the night because the lies we jump to sends in that latter part of the night.
All of these facts strengthen the opinion of those who say that awesome is the middle prayer. Yeah. Well, I mean, we have direct, as we mentioned last week, and the direct statement of the prophet Isaiah cipher, Sam as a collective saying Muslims, shall Aluna Ancelotti.
Shall Luna and solides and Gustavo salatu Lhasa
and they Yanni during the Battle of the hunt duck when he had the delay, and he delayed the ASA prayer of homicide, he said, I'm saying May Allah curse them. They, they made us preoccupy, from the answer prayer, the salata lodestar. Now,
the third period is the dolger journey in the last part of the night. The meaning here is before me
is at the end of the night which is the time for asking forgiveness Allah Exalted is He says
no one will stop feeling less hard. And those who asked forgiveness in the early hours of the morning Oh, okay, okay, I'll stop there for a second
there early hours of the morning crossed that out
look at the Arabic while it was stuck really in a bin
as how you see us how by what do you eat before fudging around with that or whenever you're fasting? Hmm. So whole soul and soul is at the same time and as hard as the plural of sound
when we stop reading have been as hard. So Sahar is that time period before so lots of fun so it's not the early hours of the morning, right? It's the last hours of the night. It's the last hours of the night. Which is interesting because I think okay
look at look at how he translates the next I will bill as Harry home yesterday, hero. He says in before the dawning of each day, right before the dawn of each day as what is the day is the early hours of the morning.
It's the latter part of the the night. And at the last part of the night they seek forgiveness or be less hardy, whom you still feel all in one stop feeling a bit less known Yeah, further,
we should put
the latter part of the map the latter part of the night.
The period referred to these verses is the last part of the time of the descent, in which Allah fulfills the needs of those asking and grants forgiveness to the penitent. The middle of the night is reserved for the lovers who wish to spend time in intimacy with their beloved. And the end of the night is reserved for the Senate to seek forgiveness for their sins. Yeah, I'm not I'm not convinced that that's the best. It is what you have said I have a whole lot but
a seat at the end of the night is reserved for the sinners to seek forgiveness for the sins and is still far is not just because a person committed a sin.
Which is when you look at the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam who will seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada
over 100 times sometimes in one city, is it because the promise I saw was sending
that is still far is yes is for when a person commit sins, but it's also when you fall short
and an activity bad but it doesn't mean that you committed a sin.
Right? It may mean for example, it's just
Yanni in an activity bear that perhaps your heart wasn't in 100% or whatever, it that doesn't mean that you're sinful for doing so. But you still ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness for falling short.
Similarly to Yanni SubhanAllah. Anna, you when somebody says to you, and I've done very well to say forgive me for any shortcomings, because maybe they wanted to do more, they wanted to do better. So they asked you to forgive them for that. But it doesn't mean that they've done something wrong. All right. So that that concept of of is still far only being added to seek forgiveness for says it needs the knees a little bit more.
I would just say we have to go go go over that a bit more
shaken to say I'm not going to lie they talks about the issue of instant far. And it not just be any for for one committing sins in multiple places in his in his works.
Nachi whoever is unable to join the striving of the lovers in the depth of the night should at least join the penitent at the end of the night.
Some narrations mentioned that the throne quivers during the last part of the night, tall, Goose tall, who said I cannot imagine that someone would sleep during the last part of the night. In a hadith recorded by Timothy, it mentions Whoever fears will travel by night, and whoever travels by night will reach its destination. That hadith is an amazing Hadith it actually correlates perfectly with the Hadith that that the author begins with right so the prophet Isaiah slotzo Sam says in this hadith min. Hoffa adultAge min Hoffa at Adelaide. Whoever fears right is going to travel
during the night, woman Ed ledger Bell
travels at night will reach his destination and the remaining of the Hadith.
The Prophet said Allah It was so sad in this alliance, Allah He hadiya in the salata, Louis Jana, that the
product, right, that Allah subhana, Allah has is expensive. And that product is genuine. Right? And we've talked about this earlier, Eliza, the revelation is talking to us in terms that we understand.
And it's not that you're, it's not the gentleman really has a price, there's nothing you can pay that would allow you to deserve eternal bliss, right. But working for that, and striving for it is going to put you in a position to receive it more likely then than those who don't work for those who don't do anything for it. And more likely to get a loss of habitat is mercy. So Madhava edilen. And there,
there is a virtue that we have to understand and fearing Allah, fearing his punishment. And we've mentioned many times before, fear is usually a stronger motivator than hope.
And even though a lot of times, especially, especially here in America,
you know, everybody's like, feel good, dour and everything is, you know, just supposed to make us motivational speeches and all this other type stuff.
Everybody was talking about hope, hope, hope. And it's, it's it's almost an exact opposite of the way that that we used to be or what a lot of people faced with their uncles and aunties and everybody tell them anything they're going to do, they're going to hell, right?
Like, everything is just you're going to hell. So it's almost like for that dollar, there was an equal and opposite response. And so everything was about feeling good and everything is about total leave and making me knowing the rewards for this in order. In fact, Subhan Allah is almost now is become candidate, if you encourage people to do something they want to know right away, was there a reward for that? Yeah, he will drop back worship Allah Subhana. Allah is looking for a specific reward for everything and want to know what level and gender he can get if they do this. So there has to be a balance. Right. And part of that the things that balances that out is the fear of a loss
Pantanal. Not just the hope but your hope is a good thing. So the prophesy some says Madhava allege Kenny if you're scared that you're not to be pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah this you're not going to make its agenda if you're scared to go to the Hellfire Ed village Madhava, Adelaide and the person in a personal fears they're not going to make it to the destination. And you're not just going to travel. In the daytime, you're going to travel at night, they're going to they're going to try to cover up ground. Right.
And have at Edie alleged Whoever fears will travel during the night woman, Ed Elijah, Bella dalmunzie. And whoever travels at that night, he's gonna reach his destination. And subhanAllah I've given us a little bit of thought. And I think that it's important for us to consider how merciful Allah subhanaw taala is with us
in even with the prophesy centum is telling us here, hey, take advantage of that beginning part of the day. And Friday time, take advantage of that last part of the day. right close to when the sun is going, you know, close to when the sun is setting. And we're che imminent diligent, che Emily, hi, do something in the night. And to show yourself that you really want to be pleasing to Allah to Anton, and you know what you have you got the rest of the day to yourself. And I was thinking about us And subhanAllah even as silhouettes and humps and you pray Fajr and then you did what Jana now imagine it you got the whole day to live your life. Only thing you got to do between Fajr and answer
Look, that's it. You just got to stop.
Pray for rock as I said,
in in that entire time. So panela it's almost like and I noticed is like, not the best way to say it was like Allah is like, leave you alone. You got it. You got to worry about this. Go out do your thing. But when it's time to worship Allah is fantastic. And this is why so Subhan Allah, how can we turn away from the worship of Allah Subhana Allah at those times that are prescribed?
When in reality is soul is a little is not alive? That Allah azza wa jal is really required of us.
And we put it in that kind of perspective.
And he Subhan Allah, Allah azza wa jal, the things that he's made an obligation upon us
We fulfill those ranks, like the Bedouin, who came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and he said, Look, that's what I gotta do. That's what I gotta do. That's what I gotta do. Alright, that's it. I'm not doing anything extra. So I said I'm sorry if Lohan Sadhak and he this man if he's, if he actually does that, he's gonna be successful. He's gonna be front of people agenda. Right? Imagine you could get paid full time job. And all you had to do is think about all you had to do was pray at the beginning of the day.
Or forget pray, to take some notes or whatever 10 minutes be good day, 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there. Any total total hours put together got one hour out of your day, you pay full time Allah has given you gender.
Let us really think and he's Paola, how merciful ALLAH SubhanA. Allah is even with the five Salawat how your day can be structured around those five salawat and it still doesn't interfere really, and with what you're doing,
with your with your livelihood, if you will, no.
journey in the last part of the night cut short the journey of the world and the hereafter. As is mentioned in the Hadith recorded by Muslim when you journey journey at the end of the night for the earth is compacted by night, you read the footnote.
The hadith is not recorded by Muslim, rather Abu Dahoud 2571 on the authority of anus.
Hacking, said it was sprayed, and that happened.
Al Hakim and his StarTrack
al Hakim and Mr. Black said it was sought it and that the other had been agreed. It was also declared sorry, by abahani nine so no, no matter what they said is Hadees not authentic, adequately had. And in any event.
It's still as the author is just trying to point out here the journey in the last part of the night cuts short the journey of the world into here. In other words, how to cut short with a lot of shortcut. Right? How do you how do you decrease the amount of time on the journey or the effort in the journey he's saying traveling at night, both in this dunya and when you travel at night, and he's mentioned this hadith of the prophet Isaiah salatu salam when the earth is compacted for you. So you're able to travel a greater distance and the same amount of time as you would do during the daytime from travel through the night. He's saying that likewise, that journey to the hereafter. So
20 minutes 30 minutes that she spent at night is valuable, as valuable. Now, one of the noble said the burdens of journeying by night with patients bear return with the morning finding you firm in obedience, be not faint of heart and desist not from the aspiration for resolve dissipates in the face of despair and exasperation. I know and the days have practically demonstrated, that patient says results truly veritable say, Whoever strives after a matter desired with patients accompanying him will surely succeed.
If you put it that Ashtar we put it upon and he even Abu Abu Paul it but he Allahu and after resting part of the night and found him standing in the prayer, he said, leader of the believers, fasting by day, praying by night and toil between the two. When he had finished his prayer, he said, The journey to the hereafter is long, and it needs to be cut short by journeying by night. This is the bootjack Yeah, so Roger was saying this is the soldier. The journey to the hereafter is long. What's the shortcut? Traveling at night? Okay. The journey to the hereafter is long.
It's cut short and you get a shortcut by traveling through the night. This is the soldier. This is the soldier
the wife of Habib Abu Muhammad Al Pharisee. It should be Habib Ibnu Mohammed and Pharisee
scratch out Abu and put them in in this place.
Isn't it Have you ever been Mohammed not Habib, Abu Mohammed the ones that have been even Mohammed alpha to see would wake him at the night and say awake? Oh yeah, Habib,
for the path is long and that provision is paltry. The cameramen have the righteousness passed ahead of us. And we have been left behind.
Oh sleeper by night for how long will you lie? Awake might be loaded for the promised time draws nine for a portion of the night you're loaded deify
for sleep begets neither rest nor equanimity. Whoever in slumber deep spends the night will not have striven or arrived at the at the destination, right. Okay. have striven or arrive at the destination right? Scratch that out, will not reach the destination even if he strives
and I know that doesn't rhyme and all that, but it just didn't capture the meaning. He said my Nana had Tae Yong kabhi Leila LEM your Blue Hill Manziel blow your head
and he whoever spends the night in deep slumber Manasa had tear young called the Leila and whoever sleeps until that the night goes by and he they've done nothing so the night goes by will not reach the destination even if he strives let me have a look at my as a lawyer
have the Sunnah, Mashallah. Alright, so we finished that chapter
who remembers to have to four we'll just have to wish to have the fort.
Go back and go back to page 52.
Meaning the beginning of the day.
Right. So the meaning of a HUD one or RO hap What dolger So that's what we want to cover in chapter four.
And what did we say? What's the what?
When he talked about like the word Mr. Rohan. He said that there are the two obligatory acts and then there are their voluntary acts optional these the two obligatory acts what? So lots of fraudulent and salata, Lhasa, and the actual acts that one does at that time.
The dikkat in the glass, especially the prophetic thicket and dua that the prophesy center would do. If you do happen to sit in the masjid from after sight and measure up until sunrise. That is the best dhikr of Allah's hands after you've completed the ones that the prophesy someone has mentioned specifically, best they could have Allah Subhana Allah is this the Quran?
The Quran, so so you can use that time as well. To do your with your daily recitation report. I'm like, now we want to chapter five, which is the meaning of
a cost, the meaning of moderation, because the problem is when someone says oh cost of that, I will cost the tab Lu and Elissa mill cost
it here today that to moderation and you will reach your destination, right? So what is a cost?
That is what we're going to look at, in this particular
in this chapter, and shall Alta which is approximately 10 pages. I follow
the meaning of OutKast moderation. Here's a slight twist to them saying moderation, moderation. Through this will you attain your goal contains encouragement towards moderation in worship, such that one voice excess and deficiency? It is for this reason that he alleged that it was lamb repeated twice and bizarre, because it's the Hadith on the authority of who they for where you lie, or and that the Prophet alayhi salaatu Westerdam said, Excellent indeed is moderation and poverty. Excellent, indeed, is moderation in effluence. Excellent, indeed, is moderation in worship. Muthana off in Abdullah Eman shift here had a son who would strive greatly in worship. So he said to him,
the best of affairs is the middle one. The good deed lies between two evil deeds, the good lead the good deed lies between a co attain and he the two evil deeds. And there's a reason why you want to add the before to evil deeds. So the good deed lines between the two evil deeds and the worst thing and honestly even though he says Al Hassan has to be in a car attain, I will say I will say here the good path, right? lies between the two evil paths and perhaps that will clarify what he what he means here. Though it's not it's not an incorrect translation sign
right but but maybe that clarifies it a little better. So the good path
isn't between the two evil paths playing fumble and the worst of journeys is the one where one strives so much that he kills his mouth and his left stranded fight. I would I would prefer here to just leave it in the worst of journeys is a hack hack
hack hack, which he is going to explain that a lot. So the translated did a little
tough Lima tech here which is
how you say that
he brought something that was coming later any any brought it forward? Right. So so so at the lava shift, he
said to his son, Mohammed, okay, or it says multiple if you've been and 11 shift here, had a son who was strive Gretna. So Mortara had been Abdullah said his son, the best of the affairs is the middle one. And the good path is the one that lies between the two evil paths and the worst of journeys. Is that how Kaka?
And what is that? What
is the one where a person has, as it says here strive so much that he kills his mountain, he rides his mount to the ground. In other words, oh, yeah, like a person who takes who takes a car, like just think about it for a car. But then we backtrack about a person who has a car, he drives it like a madman never changes, the oil never does anything. Tires are going bald. And he just just destroys this blessing and a loss. Fantastic game. So think about the ones Ryan is mountain, right. And he's writing it throughout the day, throughout the night. He's not letting it stop to get any water. He's not letting it do anything he's not. And he just kills it. He kills the mountain and then he's in
the middle of the desert strand.
So he's telling his son, listen,
you're going to hurt yourself. This you're on a path right now is zealous, you're going going, going, going going?
We've all seen that movie, with somebody saying Subhanallah you see the person and you might even advise them you might want to slow down a little bit. And then you see the person a year later and it barely practice holding onto his lap. He says hello just just a minute ago, and this guy was running himself rain. And you gotta have you gotta pace yourself. Pace yourself, you're gonna destroy yourself. Right?
And this is Subhan Allah you know, we take this from the fifth of the hadith of Abdullah and I live in Laos.
And he went when he came to the province I sent him and he was like, I could do more I could do more I could do more. And the prophets Allah is someone was telling him okay,
Allah, you might be with the war right now. What is this something that you really gonna be able to keep pace with? And ideas? How do you keep that pace
is like Brother, brother said to me today.
Though he was, he was talking about how the young guys in the gym and they going hard and like, you like the football players and all that. And they go and he lift all these weights, they did it, then he's telling him what to do. Right? The sun is telling today you need to do this. He said nine and I just wait till you turn 65
He turned 65 Good knees, you gotta get two knee replacements. You don't all this crazy. Right now it looks good. Let's go you got big old muscles you walking around. That's not normal. It's not natural size. Who does that rebar. And by the time he's 35, you going to need knee replacements gotta get a hip and all of a sudden, because you wanted to go hard. And then what happens to you later in life? Right? So again, even though it's a different concept, the what you see if Elijah is is bringing this out time and time again, comparing that journey to Allah Subhana Allah with these physical journey with the physical journeys that we might embark on. Same thing here. You push yourself in
the deen so hard. So ours or,
again, we need to define this because there's nothing that Allah has added has made an obligation upon us
will humbly land that is an abnormal difficulty. And if it is that we don't have to do it.
So for example, standing up in prayer, that's not an abnormal difficulty, but if it becomes a difficulty, sister's pregnant, it's difficult for her to stand up, then what?
She can sit down, it's no longer
it's no longer an obligation upon her, right. Similarly, any anything that becomes an abnormal difficulty, that is that Allah azza wa jal made an obligation upon us that what happens? It's no longer it's no longer an obligation for that particular individual. Right, because this one still
So the idea here is that the worst journey is a hacker, the one where you, you ride your mountain into the ground. You kill it, and a stranded. Yeah, no way to go. Right and so this is what happens he's warning him about going to excess. This is what a prophesy Salam said and another Hadith is very similar to this one that you shared that Dina I don't Allah, however, right, nobody is going to go to extreme in the deen and go in and go too far except that Dena is going to overwhelm them. It's going to overwhelm not further motivated.
Mo ray that said, he means the excessiveness and worship is evil. The efficiency is evil and moderation is praiseworthy is you also don't want to go to the point where you leave in off obligations or even leaving all those things that are Mooster heavy and that you can do you don't want to leave them that's that's also not not a good thing. Now, this meaning is supported by the Hadith reported on the authority of Abdullah in amber radiola who and whom the Messenger of Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, this religion is powerful. So walk in it with gentleness and that not the worship of Allah become burdensome for you.
You cry, that's not a good translate it will alarm.
Let me let me tell you what it says when I had to bow did ILA enough seeker is where the Tila don't make the worship of Allah hate it to you.
Don't make yourself hate the worship of Allah that then maybe that's the root of Don't make yourself hate the worship of Allah will lead to balance it either enough sick. In bed, it's Allah. Now.
I'm not saying that this is a horrible translation, because if you make worship burdensome, then it becomes then you hate it right? But
anyway, for them, and let not the worship of Allah become a hated for you. For the ones who fall to not make yourself hate the worship of Allah do not make yourself hate the worship of Allah for the one who falters.
For the for the one who falters and is unable to continue has neither shortened the journey nor preserved his mouth. I want you to catch that Do you understand that? Let's run that back for the one who falters and is unable to continue his need to shorten the journey nor preserved his mouth does that mean
you ever think about the guy I'll take the shortcut that everybody got there before him
you didn't get anything you thought you were taking the shortcut? Alright. But but really you ran into traffic or whatever? Yeah. Is it the one who fault is it called fit in net? l Moon bet now other than Qatar ebca Right. At the end of the day, what's going to happen if if if you make yourself hate the worship of Allah becomes burdensome, then you're going to fall back you're not going to be done so you haven't shortened the journey and you haven't done anything gets you more beloved to Allah Subhana Allah and you didn't preserve the mountain that Allah has blessed you to ride on a journey for the work the deeds of a man who believes that he will die as an old man and
beware of the fear of a man who believes that he will die tomorrow let
you call and confirm the money in your loan no no who lainnya motor Hedeman why the heather only in Yorkshire and your motor garden and he says okay, so the first part is correct. Work did these available leaves that he will die as an old man.
Okay, and be cautious. Like the like the caution of one who is scared that he will die tomorrow.
It doesn't say beware of the fear of a man who believes that he will die tomorrow that doesn't work here. And he be cautious and he take precautions like the one who believes he's going to to die tomorrow.
That's so what does this mean?
Work the deeds of a man who believes he will die as an old man. What's that mean?
Can you diligently
pass away right now? But at the same time, okay, why? Why is that? Why Why?
Why do you work diligently towards the future? Not like you're gonna die right now why?
work is awkward. That's it, you're gonna burn yourself out. You're gonna
burning yourself out you're not going to, if you if you're if you're working like somebody who's not going to die. Yeah, the deeds of somebody who's going to die older, you develop a consistency develop a pattern, you develop something that's tolerable for you to do. So you continue in it right but, but also be precautious
whether to manufacture and to harden it you still, you still want to be cautious as if you're gonna die tomorrow. The first one is working the deeds. The second one is staying away from the Haram
be cautious because you could die anytime you want to die and you're doing something that's displeasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. So be cautious as if you're going to die tomorrow. But work your deeds if you want to live for a long time clear.
From a shift, recorded by humans enjoy and others. And here's a list of activists then repeatedly mentioning the command to moderation lies an indication that one should persist in this moderation. This is because a strenuous journey in which one strives greatly is prone to end suddenly without completion. A moderate journey, however, is more likely to reach its goal. This is why the Messenger of Allah Allah, let me let me just go over this real quickly. It's, it's the translation is okay. But there's some things that I think are important for us to highlight. So he says we're in the ship that sad. Well, he had Melinda to set the bar. So when there's a strenuous journey, right?
It's, it's more likely that it is going to lead to frustration, right?
And therefore, Inky thought, which means you're going to stop.
Okay. And then he says, Well cost to Accra boil at dawn, a moderate journey, right? Is
is is more likely to have a domain that is a person that's persistent in that journey. Okay.
So what happens when a person is is overburdening themselves, they're gonna get frustrated, and they gotta stop. Whereas if you take a moderate course in sha Allah, and more likely to be consistent in that process now.
This is why the Messenger of Allah Alayhi salat wa salam stated that the end result of moderation was the achievement of the objective and whomever whoever travels by night will reach his destination.
In this world, the believer is traveling to his Lord until he reaches him. Yeah, you have insane in naka de Haan EDA will be the telehealth and will it you verily oh man are working towards your Lord painfully toiling and you shall meet him. Allah azza wa jal also says why Buddha Rebecca had yet to clean up and worship your Lord until the certainty comes to you.
At Husson said, People persistence, persistence, surely Allah has appointed that time of cessation of deeds to be just before death. No. Alright, so in one of the inversion that the translators using, there's a a letter there's a hadith that is missing is so in the version that has been translated in the law huh? Yeah, Jolly Amazon woman excellent doing now it's in the Lucha Lem. Yeah, John. The AMOLED movement Agilent doodle Mote Allah has not
made Okay, so here it says Allah has appointed the time session thesis. No, it should saying for in the law had LEM yadgir and the amulet movement Agilent Donal Gen, Allah has not made for the actions of a believer any appointed time short of death. And in other words work.
There's no appointment, there is no time when you stop doing deeds
So I'll muda Wilma, Al Madonna, be consistent, be consistent. Because Allah has not appointed that there is any end for the deeds other than death. That's the only time you should stop and then he recited the above verse nine further. He also said, your souls are your mounts so 10 to your mounts. In this way they will convey to convey you to your Lord, mighty and magnificent.
The meaning of tending to one's mouth is to be easy on the kingdom fit and healthy and not to overburden them. Therefore
if one feels his soul is coming to a halt and it's travel, he tends to it by inculcating in it the desire to finish the journey
or by inculcating in it the fear of not finishing the journey as the situation may demand.
You This is excellent Go ahead. One of the self said Hope is the guide. And fear is the driver. And the soul is between the two like a headstrong animal because stubborn animal Okay, so start right there. So what is he talking about here the importance of what that balance between fear and hope. So one one might be that desire to finish the journey Come on, we got to finish we got to keep pushing, keep pushing, come on, you can do it. And then the other one might be like, scaring
the soul if you will, what's going to happen if you don't finish this journey? Right? And so the believer has to be between those two with the love of Allah subhanaw taala driving
so when the guide has grown tired and the driver is unable to have effect the soul will stop and it will then need gentle treatment and song to provoke it into recommit to beginning again its journey in this respect the camera leaders was there me
was that me? It will then need gentle treatment and song
that's exactly what it means it'll head to any
you said queueing
that's why Shala
so high that sort of queueing
got a Patek masala but but no I mean it means cool you know like who like it's furthest from? It's just a word that used to describe birds it qu Sol Sol Sol Sol. I'm not sure I guess
any in any event, any at that point, you got to you got to finesse the situation. You have to finesse the situation and it was the kitchen. No so that's why I clicked my parents with with your proposal from the pigeon.
In this respect the camera leader for a quick question because this is this one of the plays when people will have a beat that make their camel go Yeah, that's exactly what's about to say right now. Go ahead. Okay, yeah, to provoke it into week commencing its journey. Okay. In this respect, the camera leader who drives on his herd by singing said yeah, what I'm saying is the singing part like just singing notes. There's like a particular like
not a beat a pace. Yeah, like creating an I don't know.
Like a beat that that's going to keep keep it moving. Right now. It's God gave a glad tidings saying tomorrow shall you see bananas and mountain?
Fear is like a winner.
We just see. We'll call it a garden.
Paula. Well, gee, well gee, Bella.
disease, Paula has the word for the English.
Oh, those it's a certain kind of tree. It's not bananas, though.
It's Pinilla. The acacia tree, I think it is. Whatever. In any event, it's not bananas. Tomorrow, you'll see these trees and mountains by FOMO. Fear is like a whip. And when a person excessively whips the animal, it could well die. As such, one must also strike it with songs of hope that would encourage you to eagerly be vitalize its efforts until it arrives at the destination. Abu Yazeed said, I have persistently guided my soul to Allah without letting up. It would be it's it would weep all the way that I urged it on until it laughed. It is said when it complained to the burdens of the journey. He promised it of the relief of arrival. So it revitalized its efforts. Alright, so let us
just understand this real quick. So when it complained of the burdens of the journeys, he promised that of the relief of arrival, so it revitalizes efforts. What's that mean?
This this is actually important. That's why I'm asking. I mean, it's important for us to understand and you see assets and knifes if you will, right, how to manage and govern your own soul. So what's happening here? What is he What is he telling us?
He's talking to herself, okay, he's talking to himself, but yeah, what is it? What is he? What is he trying to get across to himself?
We've been assaulted in shape, weapon a soul in the shape. Yeah. Okay
so what's happening? Basically,
he's talking about when, when the going gets tough when, when things get difficult that what is he doing, he's reminding himself
of the relief that he have, once he reaches the destination, right? So and that and that's, that's important, because sometimes you can lose sight of the goal, because of the difficulty of the journey. Right. So when things get a little rough along the way, you hit some rough patches, you forget how sweet it is to reach the destination. And so that's when you have to be reminded. And so again, this is where we come between fear and hope. Right?
Sometimes, you need to read about gender. And just remember Subhan Allah,
you know that the reward of the people who gets agenda we ask Eliza doesn't make us wonder people have gender.
And so when things get rough, and you feel like Miss Pamela is just, you know, going through these, through this difficulty room, that's when you have to be reminded
of the relief of arrival, if you will. And there are other times when the soul begins to deviate from from the path that needs to be reminded of the hellfire and
how you don't want to be in it in that situation. As as sweet as the disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala may seem for a few seconds now.
Traveling the path of Allah Almighty and magnificent, Khalid al Ansar Al and so he said, Every lover desires to meet his beloved. So love your Lord and traveled to him with a fine journey, neither arduous nor lacks. This journey will take the believer to his Lord and whoever does not know the Path to his Lord will not traverse it. And there is no difference between such a person and an animal. Okay, so you want to put a highlight this part here, whoever does not know the Path to his Lord will not traverse
that there is so important because it's highlighting the importance of knowledge. When you ask Allah azza wa jal in the Salah, Dino su autonomous study the guidance to restrict pain, that street path is the path that combines between beneficial knowledge and righteous actions.
So knowing the path that leads to loss Fantana is a prerequisite for for tracking another path because whoever does not know the path to his door will not traverse it not the known, the known, said, the lonely or those who do not know the path to the Lord. And nor do they seek to know it. And that's it and that's another Subhanallah
another level, which is they don't know and they don't care to know. They don't know and they don't care.
And subhanAllah those who don't know but seek and their reward is what Allah subhanaw taala for seeking the knowledge of knowing that path to Allah azza wa jal will coastal Costa Tulu, follow that moderate path and you will reach your destination and this is what this book is about. Knowing that journey, knowing how to reach you know that the path that is pleasing to Allah span of time No.
Further, the path to a law is to reverse the traverse is straight path with which he sent his messenger at least that was the Lamb and for which he revealed his book is this path that he commanded the whole of creation to traverse, even miss UHD very low and said the straight path Mohammed la Salatu was Salam left us on one end of it, and the other end is in paradise. to its right and left are paths branching off, on which Stan people summoning those paths by them. Whoever takes to those paths will end up in the fire but the one who remains on the path will end up in paradise. Then he decided when he was still keyman fit to be rule one what to view supernova to
Firewalker Bikram svt, that ECOSOC on behalf of the content to goon and verily This is my straight path. So follow it. Follow not other ways lest you be parted from his way. This has he ordained for you that you may ward off evil that you may be among them looked up in
the next verse.
This was recorded
This was recorded by Edmund Judea and others. Therefore the path that leads to Allah is one the straight path. And all other paths are the paths have shaped on whoever traverses them is cut off from Allah and will end up in the abode of his displeasure. Anger and punishment. Yeah, okay, so I'm gonna, we're gonna stop here I'm gonna read the footnote from no claim Mahima hello to Anna and then we'll stop shallow Salinas. Then as of two minutes, it will claim I'm not going to lie, it says we will expound upon the straight path and a succinct manner for the people who have explained it for the people have explained it very in various ways, all of them revolving around one essential fact.
The straight path is the path of Allah which He has put in place to lead mankind to him, is no pattern other than this one, which he appointed upon the tongues of His messengers.
It is to single him out alone for worship, and to single out his messengers alone for obedience, that is unconditional obedience, right?
Therefore, none should commit schicke in his worship, just as none should commit *can the following of his messages Elijah was someone should purifies to heat and purify his following of the messages of law and he was some of this is the full import of the test certification. That was the testimony that last night Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, all of the various explanations given to the straight path fall under these two principles, you must love Him with all your heart, must try to please Him to the utmost of your ability, there should not be any area of your heart, except it is overflowing with the love of him Allah and you should have no desire except to please Him. The first
part is realized through actualizing the you know in the law, and the second part is realized who actually actualizing 100 or Rasulullah This is guidance in the religion of truth. This is knowing the truth and acting upon it This in turn, is knowing that he's Isaiah Johnson says messenger with and living by all definitions revolve around this central kind of set side of the Lancet, stick to the narrations and Sunnah. For I fear that a time will come when the prophesy send them in the importance of following him and everything is mentioned. The people would censure the person who says this cause others to flee from him disassociate themselves from him, humiliate him and disgrace
So, inshallah we'll pick up here
in the next class Shala.
Next Tuesday in the lens, I will pick up on page 66. There are two chapters remaining, neither which are long shot long data and be in the lab. We'll cover both of those. Next week. Well, low tide items along some of the water. And then Amina Mohammed Subhanak Alonso, hamburger shadow, night and subcritical
