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

Under the law

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

hamdulillah

00:00:22--> 00:00:48

whether want to stay or who want to stop when I was relying on shaurya fusina sciatica Melina, me after he left alone will the letter on your lap? Why Chateau La la la la la la, la sharika gonna watch I don't know, Mohammedan Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was suffering he was sending them a testament to Ronnie Naomi Dean, and my dad

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

was the duck

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

will get a Chaba.

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

Plate today, inshallah, we're going to

00:01:08--> 00:01:29

continue with the sixth lesson. And this is the next to last. So last week, and Charlotte will be excuse me, next week will be the last lesson in the light data. And today, inshallah, we're going to conclude section two and begin with section three now, section one of the book Delta what,

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

what this section one of this book deal with

00:01:35--> 00:02:33

defining email, which is critical to understand and the second part, which is how do we develop that email, how goes how, how we can strengthen our faith, okay. So the second part, again, is how we strengthen that faith, or that Amen. And then we're going to move on to section three in the lights, and hopefully we can get there today. And that section deals with what we can call the fruits of email, the fruits of Amen. So first thing, and again, this entire book is dealing with that parable in the Quran, which compares the good word to a good tree to a good tree, right. And so we're looking at the soil in which that tree or which those seeds are planted, you're looking at that tree

00:02:33--> 00:02:42

growing, you nurturing it, what has to be done for it to grow properly. And then what happens after that tree grows and it becomes strong.

00:02:43--> 00:03:30

It bears fruit, right? So you may benefit from a tree even if it doesn't have fruit or you benefit from it. you benefit from the shade, you might just look at it looks nice, right? But But then at the end of the day, if it is a tree that is supposed to have fruit on it, whether it's apples or oranges or whatever, then you want to be able to get that from from Okay, and so that is the last part of the or the last section of this book that we've covered inshallah Tada. So this week. As you can see, we've covered the scope and the framework of this book definition of Eman, developing Amen. Today, we were supposed to deal entirely with the fruits of the man. But Lastly, we didn't finish

00:03:30--> 00:03:42

developing the man. So we're going to pick up where we left off in shallow that. Before that, I just want to review some of the important points from last week that somebody read number one, please.

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

The objective of Revelation, Revelation, so

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

turn the mic.

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

Okay.

00:03:58--> 00:04:15

objective of revelation with two forms of Revelation. Revelation. Okay, so let's start there. What does this have to do what we covered last week? Says the objective of Revelation the two forms of Revelation and the conveyer of revelation anybody except for shake I need can answer this question.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

Because I got this from him.

00:04:21--> 00:04:36

Come on, come on. Yes. What is the objective of revelation at the end of the day? To know a lot out of it if you know a lot properly, they didn't want to do what you're gonna worship from Suppan, what's Allah out of love? You want to worship Him because you love them?

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

If you know, and you're going to worship Him, because you hope in Him and you fear them. But primarily, the thing that's going to drive you is your love of Allah and Allah if you actually know him. And that is the example that many of the scholars of Islam have given of the burden. Right? That the Love is like the head and the wings are loving. Oh,

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

So the love, the hope and fear, and that's what needs to be balanced, but it's the love that actually drives it actually drives that worship of lost sight. So if the objective of Revelation is primarily to know Allah Subhana Allah, then everything else follows that. What are the two forms of revelation?

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

The Quran and the Sunnah, who's the one that conveyed the revelation?

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

If you look at what we covered last week, we covered the first four ways that you strengthen a man is through what number one was what

00:05:36--> 00:05:53

knowing the last man's alibi way of his names and attributes. That's the objective of Revelation. The second thing we took was contemplating over the Koran contemplating over the Quran, which is the first form of revelation in the most

00:05:55--> 00:06:27

virtuous, if you will, form of revelation because the direct speech of Allah subhana wa Tada. The third thing he mentioned was what? Knowing the ahaadeeth, which is the second form of Revelation. And then the fourth thing that he mentioned was what? Knowing the Prophet sallallahu it was similar. So that is the conveyor of Revelation. So it revolves around revelation. Again, again, if we look at it, we talked about it, that the

00:06:29--> 00:06:47

strengthen and faith revolves around two things which are shall what knowledge and beneficial knowledge and righteous action so these, these four here, these four here, sum up for us beneficial knowledge, beneficial knowledge needs to go back to that.

00:06:48--> 00:06:48

All right.

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

Is that clear?

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

Number two, relationship between men and sugar, the relationship between a man sugar

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

which is what?

00:07:09--> 00:07:23

Right, so when your record so if we say e man here, we exclude it to one of its meanings, which is recognition and conviction, when you recognize a loss of our Dallas favorite, then you increase it.

00:07:25--> 00:07:30

Right, your gratefulness and when you increase in sugar, what happens?

00:07:31--> 00:07:48

That man also increases because sugar is part of Amen. So if it increases, then he man naturally increases. And one of the things that she got the basket mentioned last week that I thought was also an important point here is that Cofer is an antonym of both Amen, and

00:07:49--> 00:08:05

so when we say what is the opposite of man, the opposite of a man is what is covered. But what is the opposite of sugar? Coffee, awesome, right? So, right because because coffered the the

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

the actual linguistic meaning of Kufa is if you will, is to reject something is to reject something.

00:08:17--> 00:08:24

It says if you've covered up reality, and they say that the English word cover comes from cover.

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

So they say and last write down and I'm not a linguist, so I don't know.

00:08:30--> 00:09:02

But but that's what they say. They say that a cover comes from cover or cover comes from Cofer, which kind of makes sense as but because the reality is you're covering up the reality of something and therefore you are rejecting it you're rejecting. And so that rejection of faith rejection of Eman is called COVID. And rejection of a loss of handle with Alice naem are recognizing him as demonium, the one who was favored you that is also called

00:09:03--> 00:09:34

the opposite of Sure. Type number three, we talked about Vicki in the heart and the tone and that the best form of decode is when the tongue in the heart coincide. So you are remembering Allah Subhana Allah, internally, and you're mentioning him on the tongue, and that is the best form of victory. But that but that even dickered restricted to the tongue alone is still beneficial. It's still you still get a reward for that. And oftentimes, it is the tongue that will remind

00:09:37--> 00:09:52

you, the last thing that we'll take for review is accepting Islam. Upon seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so we talked about that last week. Who Who, who did we say? accepted Islam? Just from seeing the Prophet It is

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

okay, we met

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

You

00:10:01--> 00:10:07

came to the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, in approximately Sonam, read to him what we call now.

00:10:08--> 00:10:10

And he said, bring that back

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

out again. And he accepted his thing. But there was one, which is true, but there was one just from seeing him. He said, as soon as I saw him, I knew he wasn't allowed

00:10:21--> 00:10:27

to live in Silicon Valley, who was from the amount of the Jews in Medina

00:10:29--> 00:10:37

play How can we benefit from that? How do we how do we benefit from that, and establishing and developing faith?

00:10:43--> 00:11:33

Right, but by by knowing just as people who lived with the prophet SAW the love, it was something new the truthfulness of his message, because of him. They see like a loss from the data set in the homeland, you can be bunich what I can Oh buddy, meaning we actually learn how to take a loss printout and sent to the processor itself, don't lie, you can be born and they're not rejecting you. Well, I can nobody Mina, we are here to learn. But it is the body's wrong doors. It is the signs of a lost parents either that they are pretending not to believe it yet, and he has had a shake. He knows that is the truth. But he he still denies that use that alarm. For people who have loaned

00:11:33--> 00:11:39

someone something that's that that's the same word, they use an Arabic name. So you will loan somebody something say, I need that back.

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

$200 I know.

00:11:44--> 00:12:36

That's a jacket. He He knows good and what that you've loaned him $200 but he pretends not to know Well, I can a buddy Nina Be it let me get your hair done. It is the they are they are pretending to not know the signs of a loss of habitat. Right. So they are not rejecting the Prophet, some love it was some as such. Similarly, if we are to study the seal of the prophets of Allah, who it was something when we study his chemin, which means his outer characteristics, and these types of it should help us grow. Email should help us grow any man. And for those who do not have email, that is the man that is beneficial to them on your piano. Those who do not have that will develop it.

00:12:37--> 00:12:41

By knowing who the messengers are, the law it will send them was like,

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

Yes, we got to get the juices

00:12:47--> 00:13:14

flowing already. All right, well just read over the questions quickly shala that we should be able to answer by the end of this class. What are the five major objectives of the city? And how does this relate to increasing? He meant we wanted to cover that last week, we weren't able to cover? What are the two levels of a cent? What are the two levels of a cent? How does benevolence increase faith but Netherlands here means a sand towards the creation. I know if you were really what all

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

you would have been given a step seer.

00:13:22--> 00:14:02

Play you mentioned six characteristics of the successful believers. And why successful is in quotation marks here is because we're specifically referring to those characteristics that are mentioned at the beginning of swords. Which is the 23rd chapter in the Quran today if Allah Allah, Allah, Allah says, indeed, the believers are successful, which What are they qualities? What are the characteristics? Name at least five ways that the author mentions that you can strengthen amen? And we're going to talk about that in some detail because that was your homework. And we need to cover some of that name at least three things that we can faith. And what is the main difference between

00:14:02--> 00:14:08

the second and third sections of this work that we're covering? shallow tap? Let's go

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

sorry. No, I think I read

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

Welcome back.

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

By policy,

00:14:32--> 00:14:41

the Islamic religion in its entirety, no impure. Its beliefs are the most correct of beliefs and the most beneficial.

00:14:42--> 00:14:55

The morals and management promotes are the best and most beautiful. The actions it requires and regulations legislates by the best of actions and laws, and the most just Okay, so so here.

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

The author is encouraging us

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

Who know what would they call mahasin al Islam, Hasson and Islam. And there are two the author himself has written two books that deal specifically what? With mahasin? Al Islam now mahasin comes from seeing, I'm glad that some of you brothers in Arabic class so mahasin what what is the root of that? What is the three letter root?

00:15:32--> 00:15:56

Right from hasin or hacer una depending. So So here, right? Which means something that is good. So when we talk about mahasin of Islam, we're talking about those qualities that are recognized as being excellent. They're outstanding. They highlight the beauty of the deen. Now all of the deen is beautiful. Right? But there are parts of the deen that somebody might look at,

00:15:57--> 00:16:33

at first glance, and not recognize it as being something beautiful. They say What do you mean? If you steal something, you get your hand chopped off? That's barbaric, right? So we're not going to look at that as being from mahasin of Islam even though it is a good thing, but we can talk about a cello. Alright, so mahasin is Sam are what are recognized by almost all almost universally recognized as being beautiful qualities of the religion. Understand this is this is the term that the scholars use for that. So like what in your mind?

00:16:36--> 00:16:36

Yes.

00:16:38--> 00:16:51

So So the concept of being dutiful and kind to your parents in Islam, it is emphasized like it no other D. Okay, what else?

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

Huh? So Pamela, are you Muslims in a you can't come up with anything? That's beautiful about the religion.

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

Okay, so So, so wanting for your brother, what you want for yourself? How's that different than the golden rule? The

00:17:11--> 00:17:16

Golden Rule exists. And even outside of religion, the golden rule exists, you know, the golden rule.

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

Do unto others, as you will soon see yourself, what's the difference between wanting for your brother which you want for yourself and doing for others, which you would do? As you want them to? You?

00:17:31--> 00:17:31

know, say?

00:17:35--> 00:17:44

Say that again, better for your brother hoping better for your brother, then you then you want for yourself has claimed that that's true.

00:17:49--> 00:17:55

Okay, all right. I'll help in terms of the articulation. Maybe somebody can articulate it better than I can.

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

You have something right now? Don't you want more? Don't you want something better? Okay, so if you want something better for yourself,

00:18:05--> 00:18:11

then you also want that better thing for your brother. So you want better for him than you actually had?

00:18:12--> 00:18:22

Right? You understand? So one thing for your brother, what you want for yourself is actually to desire that they have more than what you currently have.

00:18:23--> 00:18:34

That's different. That's that concept of training yourself to actually want is different than what you do is different than just what you do. It's a step beyond

00:18:35--> 00:18:56

the elimination of jealousy. Oh, absolutely. And that takes work. Absolutely. So so by wanting for your brother, which you work for yourself, you it does eliminate envy period. And as the shake mentioned, that takes it takes work. It takes work, not to envy, you know, someone else play.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

Anyway, the mahasin of Islam

00:19:01--> 00:19:20

are many. I mean, we can't sit up here and enumerate them. And in fact, like I said, he never said he himself has written two books on the top. I don't know the either one of them have been translated, and the last time it was best, the first one is called a doubler. And masala Hema has an Indian and Islam. Right, which is a

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

summarized how to change.

00:19:26--> 00:19:36

something besides dealing with the mahasin demon, the Sami is about 15 pages of a book about this x. This is short, and somebody should find that it translated like

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

the second one is doesn't carry that title, but it's called Dino. Dino say hello Jimmy and check that the correct way of life solves all problems. In na he deals with hassling snips also short, short trees. I don't know that may exist in English. I feel like I came across that some years ago but last month animals best

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

So when we look at the excellent qualities of the deen of Islam, it's it's difficult to talk about it without talking about the objectives of the show. Yeah. Because then that allows you to see everything in light of what the larger pictures. So what are the objectives of the show?

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

We talked about and McCarthy McCarthy

00:20:30--> 00:20:55

like we talked about last week preservation of the preservation of the dean. And that takes precedence that we preserve the dean that is that this Dean remains for a loss of habitat and him alone. And that we do what is necessary for preservation of the religion of Islam. The second thing is preservation of life. preservation.

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

Third,

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

okay, so when we say, when we say preservation of your mind, what does that mean?

00:21:09--> 00:21:19

Okay, so you have your mental well being, your mental well being, but before that, we would say, preservation up

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

which, which covers that it covers honor, and it covers your lineage, okay, which is why Xena is hot. I mean, that that is that's the only reason but I'm saying goes back to, to that particular

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

raw body.

00:21:45--> 00:21:58

Okay, and then the last is protection of, or preservation of wealth, preservation of wealth. So when we look at the when we look at czar

00:22:01--> 00:22:02

Yes,

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

it still happens to be five.

00:22:10--> 00:22:26

So now we're gonna go back over inshallah. So if we, if we look at if we look at certain things at a slant that we made, that other people may look at it and say, why is that? Why what's going on with that, but if you look at even all of the the who do what I can do?

00:22:27--> 00:22:36

No, not rules. No, they are the prescribed punishments. They are those punishments for that which have an exact,

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

you know, way that they were prescribed,

00:22:40--> 00:22:53

because other other punishments and discretionary and they left it to the judge, but these punishments are specific. So if we look at for example, the punishment for stealing, why is that so?

00:22:57--> 00:23:08

It has it because it serves as a deterrent, preserve, protect people's way, to wealth, to protect wealth.

00:23:09--> 00:23:24

And this is why I mean, people like that or not, but in many Islamic societies where, where the who dude is established, you can walk down the street and capture money, and nobody's gonna look twice.

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

Because these things have been put in place to protect other things. Right?

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

When you look at why is alcohol prohibited in Islam?

00:23:41--> 00:23:59

because it protects your mental well being, protection, mental well being and toxic kids in general, do what? They mess with your mind and mess with your mind. And so even when you look at the gradual nature of the prohibition of alcohol, right, how did it start?

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

Okay, right. So you surely can't come to the saliva into suka. You don't come so so you can drink at night.

00:24:10--> 00:24:37

Or maybe between, you know, fundraiser door at some point, but don't come to salaat. Why so that you know what you're saying in the salon. But then even that you scale that back? Because sometimes if you give people an inch, they take a lot, right? And so No, we're gonna cut that all the way out to preserve the mind that what out what else happens even at night if someone was to actually get intoxicated, how they behave in the house.

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

Right. So, so yes, so what happens is they they begin to do things that they probably are going to regret later on down the line. Whether it's the way they treat their family or their children or whatever else they might do.

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

So a person who's out of his right mind is going to do things that he later regret. So when Sam is preserving that, that your mental well being, you know, when you look at the prohibition of, of zeamais, other illicit relationships, that is preserving,

00:25:20--> 00:25:28

preserving a person's kind of love. So, I mean, these are these are many things, but by knowing those objectives of the [???]ty app, you start to

00:25:29--> 00:25:31

better understand

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

why Islam has put in certain rules and regulations.

00:25:38--> 00:26:20

Now, what does this have? What relationship does this have to the story of the one? Well, except that, due to the beauty of its legislation, if you remember, last week, we read the story that Amen. Sadie mentioned about the one who accepted Islam, when they asked her why she accepted to come to the religion, he said, because there was nothing that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam commanded us to do. And my mind said, I wish he would have prohibited that. And there was nothing that the prophet SAW someone prohibited. And then my mind said, I wish he would have commanded that. Right? What does? What's the relationship between the two?

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

I mean, it's not it's complicated.

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

Is fenced off. Right? Okay.

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

Explain.

00:26:33--> 00:26:33

He wasn't

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

seeking knowledge. Right. I've

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

helped him except.

00:26:45--> 00:27:15

So so. So in reality, what we're what we're saying here is by knowing the beauty of this legislation, it will either help one to enter into the religion who hasn't already answered or is going to strengthen the faith of those who have already believed. And that is, that is basically what email Sadie is saying here is that by you, knowing more about your deen and the beauty of the day, it's only going to increase you and, and faith

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

means that you have to learn, it's very important that the more you increase in your knowledge, in the lifetime of your studying the right way, the more you will increase in fake publishing.

00:27:30--> 00:28:14

And certainly oneself to acquire the level of insight and notice he uses the word exerting oneself and he had, because you, you're not going to reach the level of accent, by, you know, sitting back and putting one leg over the other, it's not gonna happen unless you push yourself unless you make it happen. Right, acquire this thing in one's worship of the law and show benevolence to doing the good to the creation. So that second part, the first part is acquiring sand and one's worship of Allah. That's what he's going to cover here and what he's calling 2.92 point 10 is where he's going to deal with benevolence to the creation, when exerts himself in the worship of a lot, until it is

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

as if he sees him and witnesses him.

00:28:18--> 00:28:33

As is in the room, if he cannot reach this level, he brings to mind that Allah sees him and therefore strives and perfecting his worship, alright, so this is basically he's paraphrasing the hadith of gibreel,

00:28:35--> 00:28:51

which he broke into the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he asked him about, he asked him about Islam, he asked him about men, and he asked him about it. Right, and so the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, when asked about what type of the look and the cuts are offering them to come to LA, but you know,

00:28:52--> 00:29:04

it's the worst of the laws if you see him If you do so, then know that he sees you. So here we have two levels of accent. Now, some scholars have even interpret this a different way.

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

But we'll go with the interpretation of those who say that they're saying is actually two levels. That first level is what is known as a pull up. That is that you are actually seeking out Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is a higher level because it's based on your love of allies origin All right, and that is worshiping Allah as if you see

00:29:31--> 00:29:34

worshiping Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:29:35--> 00:29:48

As if you are witnessing a loss of Hannah Horta, when you stand for Salah is as if you are witnessing Allah geladeira if you can't get to that level,

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

if you cannot get to that level, then know that Allah sees you. That's the second level they call that a word which is which is fear. So another

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

words,

00:30:01--> 00:30:10

you are recognizing that Allah azzawajal is watching you at all times, there's a difference. There's a difference.

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

And I'll put it to you like this.

00:30:15--> 00:30:25

So imagine you're in a match you imagine a thief is in a store, and they want to steal something. Okay?

00:30:26--> 00:30:28

But they see

00:30:29--> 00:30:36

the security people right there and seeing them all around. They see them and they know that they're being also met the security people are watching.

00:30:38--> 00:30:53

That's a level of certainty. That's a bit different than when a person knows that the store is being watched by cameras. They know that somebody's sitting in a room with 20 cameras up there in a watch,

00:30:54--> 00:31:00

isn't it? Isn't it different? So the first level is, you see,

00:31:02--> 00:31:08

it says you're witnessing Allah subhana wa tada in that worship, you're seeking him out penalty.

00:31:09--> 00:31:24

Whereas the second level, is the level where you know that Allah Subhana, Allah is watching you, but you haven't gotten to that first level. And that second level is more based on fear. Whereas this first level is more based on that column that seeking Allah

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

bla bla a hat that

00:31:30--> 00:31:40

All right, so it's like a One Belt, One robber. They use a totally what's up here? All right. So it says, keep going.

00:31:42--> 00:32:38

If he can't reach this level, he brings to mind the law sees him and their prescribes and perfecting his worship. service should never stop striving, exhausted station never stop striving. Allah Subhana Allah said, When Medina what jahad to Phoenix, when Latina, jahad to Phoenix, those who strive for us for our cause, then that's the end no home soon, we will guide them to our pets a loss of data set. And then what the law say after what in the law, the man machining, a loss turns out to be the laws with the machining, those who reach the level of exam those the practitioners have a sense. So how do you get to a sane? Well, levina Jaadu feanor. Those who strive hard, they push

00:32:38--> 00:33:14

themselves in our path. And so the level of sin, and here's the thing, sometimes we hear these things, and we may get frustrated, because it sounds like there has to be perfection, but it doesn't have to be perfection, when there has to be is jihad, there has to be that strike. And a larger agenda does not expect us to be perfect. And he doesn't hold us accountable for not being perfect. But what Eliza gel does encourage us with and push us to do is to strive. So that is a

00:33:15--> 00:33:22

a push towards improvement. And if you meet Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and you are improving your success.

00:33:24--> 00:33:34

That's what you have to look for improvement, not perfection. And allies with Dell does not require that of us because it's impossible. But we have to strive to serve, it should never stop striving.

00:33:36--> 00:33:42

So there is faith and certainty increase increases, taking him to the level of having Haku

00:33:43--> 00:33:50

which is the highest level of sense of certainty. So panela. So we've talked about, we talked about I believe,

00:33:52--> 00:34:05

I nearly attain, or ultimately attain, and I in eliakim, and half of your team. So Emily and your team we serve which is one, that the knowledge that gives you certainty, that is you know, something

00:34:06--> 00:34:26

and that knowledge gives you certainty, which is different from mine of your team, which is to actually see it, which also gives you a level of a different level, a higher level of certainty. What has happened here thing is when you actually have experienced, so we say for example,

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

if we take some of the items that have proceeded

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

at the beginning of In fact, it's all about the

00:34:38--> 00:34:41

way that to the Italian man who said that to me, man.

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

It was right before that.

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

Either looking at a law, what's up

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

so Allah Subhana Allah says about the believers that when Allah is mentioned their hearts

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Trump hates Trump fight

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

you believe that

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

that's in my opinion that there are people

00:35:12--> 00:35:18

who are like that that one Eliza Jill's name is mentioned their hearts Trump

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

Island your team will be to see somebody like that.

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

That's gonna

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

happen your team will be for you to experience.

00:35:31--> 00:35:32

And so

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

what he's saying here is that through that striving,

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

you're certainty increases it goes beyond me on your team and I ended up it gets to the point where you now experience it when you taste

00:35:48--> 00:35:52

the sweetness of Amen. Amen has an enjoyment

00:35:54--> 00:36:02

that we can talk about all day, but experiencing it is a totally different, totally different thing. So that you're

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

not

00:36:13--> 00:36:13

alone.

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

Right so now you have a certain level of certainty

00:36:19--> 00:36:35

about Allah subhana wa tada that even though you were certain about him answering do I knew was certain about being a Samir and you were certain, but now that you witnessed it, you've tasted it, there's a different level, to a different level of yucky

00:36:40--> 00:36:49

service and then taste the sweetness of his worship, and sees the fruits of his dealings with creation. This is complete faith.

00:36:51--> 00:37:05

This is completely Annie and very few of the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala make it to this level We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us from the mazzini We ask Allah Subhana data to make us from those who taste complete faith.

00:37:11--> 00:37:14

You had a loss, and I

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

only have 10 minutes left when I shouldn't

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

have mean my minutes.

00:37:29--> 00:37:44

You know, I want to I do want to I do just want to read something because I think that, uh, it's directly related to the sand. And I think it's one of those points that is often neglected. And so therefore,

00:37:45--> 00:38:21

Yanni. There's a it's appropriate to mention at this particular time, this is a statement from Josie I him alone. He says when akuto vaness lateritic who had a shocks the hearts of people, they know the real condition of a person, if you listen to your heart, if your heart is right now, don't get it, this is not for everybody. But as we mentioned in the hook back, there is a philosophy there is this intuition is a gut feeling that a true believer in Allah Subhana data has and that gut feeling

00:38:23--> 00:38:32

is not going to be wrong, if that person observes five things all right, and that was talked about in the cookbook.

00:38:33--> 00:38:54

I mentioned it very quickly number one is that he you are MIT law hero whom bibbity Batson So, so externally, and he strives to emulate the Prophet it is a lot to say, all right, in terms of his practice, in terms of his character, all of that, in terms of his worship of Allah,

00:38:55--> 00:39:09

internally, and he there is the Lamb more or less fantastic, which is, which is that second that internally, he is constantly aware of the fact that Allah subhana wa tada is watching him.

00:39:10--> 00:39:15

he strives to avoid How're

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

you looked on the bus,

00:39:21--> 00:39:37

he keeps his gaze low. That is he does not look at anything that Allah Subhana Allah has made hard for him. So again, don't think that you're going to have the proper gut feeling if you know what you're doing, in terms of watching things that are hot.

00:39:38--> 00:39:46

If your phone has become an instrument of hot, don't think that you're going to have proper intuition and that your gut feeling is going to be right.

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

And then the fifth thing is

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

to strive to always eat halau right. So here even though Josie Rahim Allah tada is talking about these type of people in that group,

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

luminous militaries will how to shut the hearts of people they know what's going on with the person. Once you hit boo Oh tap Bell went to the moon with command to have Sabina who have been alive.

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

And so they are going to

00:40:20--> 00:40:22

love him or, or reject Him.

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

Or they are going to

00:40:27--> 00:40:41

criticize him or praise Him based on his relationship with the loss of Hell with that, not because they know what his relationship with Alaska insiders but because inside of their hearts, they can feel who this person really is.

00:40:43--> 00:40:59

But in the who yet fi cooler Hemingway And Pharaoh and kulesza, because Allah Subhana, Allah is going to for those who are true servants of him, that Allah Subhana Allah is going to relieve them of all anxiety and is going to push away from them every evil.

00:41:01--> 00:41:14

My DOMA Vina who have been owed hug pay attention to this, please, please will lie, you walk away with nothing else today. sighs this point, this point is super important. Says woman US law hadn't been

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

mad been a horrible Hulk during a young boy, he lojack Elon at a summer to do the heavy to them. And then people need to understand this. He says that a person does not come now and try to rectify what's between him and the people. There's some problem there. Why don't you go fix it? Why don't you just go fix this situation with so and so

00:41:42--> 00:41:48

a person doesn't do that without looking at L hack a loss of hair without the truth.

00:41:51--> 00:42:02

Except that, except that his intention is going to backfire. And the one who used to praise him will will in turn, disparage him.

00:42:11--> 00:42:17

A person will not seek to rectify what is between him and the people

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

without looking at a loss of health data without considering what the truth is, I just want to make things right.

00:42:24--> 00:42:29

I want these people to praise me. So I need to go make things right with this other person.

00:42:30--> 00:42:50

You understand, I need to fix this situation no matter what the truth really is. without considering his relationship with the loss of habitat, and let's just go make this thing right? In the NACA semakau, except accepted, his intention is going to backfire. He's not going to be right with them, it's not going to get fixed.

00:42:51--> 00:42:59

Whatever the hell we do, who then the one who was praising him or that he wanted to praise him, in fact is going to be is going to dispraise.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

And so the bottom line is that you have to be right with the law This is

00:43:07--> 00:43:23

described to be right with a loss of habitat. And then the rest is gonna fix itself. In the law, how you Daffy. And in the in the MMO, Allah is the one that is going to do what you say he's going to defend. The ones who believe in philosophy is out of the face, who else you need

00:43:34--> 00:43:53

to the creation in speech and action, beneficence also with regards to property, honor, and other such things of benefit, all of these are part of faith. And for those matters, that strengthen it, the reward is of the same category as the action and that that's a translation of

00:43:55--> 00:44:14

that the reward is is the same category as as the good deed that was done. Right. So just as the survey shows beneficence good goodwill to the severance of law, treating them well to the utmost of visibility, a lot in turn bestows

00:44:15--> 00:44:27

on him. So how long are you remember last week we talked about? For example, if someone makes when a believer makes do I call his brother, he logged in late what happens?

00:44:29--> 00:44:33

Right, the angel say, I mean, well, I mean,

00:44:34--> 00:44:55

that is giving you back even more than what you gave. Right? Because of just admin just allameh that the reward for a deed is is commensurate with the or it's from the same category of the being that's being performed. Now, here's a question How does once a Santa the creation, increase him or her and faith? The answer is there but I just want you to think about

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

once we think about Yes, shape

00:45:04--> 00:45:05

Would you mind?

00:45:12--> 00:45:16

dimensions is nothing heavier in the scales in Tacoma? Well

00:45:19--> 00:45:25

that's that's right. Kind of sums it all up and then you can explain. Okay, I can explain thanks,

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

Zack

00:45:29--> 00:45:55

is nothing heavier on the scales than good character within Tableau the loss of data and and good character but but here here I want to know exactly in this case how does one's a Santa creation look read that last sentence a law in turn bestows his beneficence on him, you're good to the creation What does that mean? How are you good to creation? What have you? What does that mean? Just give me some examples.

00:45:57--> 00:45:57

Sorry.

00:45:58--> 00:46:01

You treat them right properly Yes. Okay, what else?

00:46:02--> 00:46:03

Huh?

00:46:05--> 00:46:15

You treat them well you have good manners with them. If they need something you, you provide it for him. Okay, is there anything you need more than faith?

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

Is there anything you need more than email?

00:46:20--> 00:46:36

So the same way that you may give something to someone and that's an act of beneficence allows fans Allah in turn gives you what you need, which is faith and strengthen in their email. So by you doing good to others, along does good to you and the best.

00:46:37--> 00:46:43

And the best thing, but the best thing that you can get from allows for data is the increase in me Okay, and in the fruits of email.

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

Right.

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

So, so again, and even the prophet Isaiah select with Sam, to sum that up, when we talk about beneficence to the creation, the probability some set a dean and the c hat. Right. So

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

what is what isn't a senior?

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

Not advice?

00:47:06--> 00:47:33

advice is part of the C high C high is sincerity. It is sincerity fidelity, right? This isn't a c hat. You can't give advice to a low What does that even mean? See how to a lot? No, it's to be true to something that that's what not is not means to be true to something. Right. So the word fidelity is probably one of the better translations for that. Because if you're true to yo wife, right?

00:47:34--> 00:47:40

And if you're not true, then it's called what? infidelity which is the, the opposite of

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

right. So to be true to something. So

00:47:45--> 00:47:51

again, the whole Dean is about being true to Allah, his book, His Messenger, and then what?

00:47:52--> 00:48:08

What muslimeen the leaders of the Muslims and they're coming from the rest of the Muslims, as this Deen is built the path that the Netherlands that we're talking about here and if a person does right by the creation, Allah Subhana, Allah will reward him accordingly and give him an increase in faith. Like

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

is it actually time for the event?

00:48:14--> 00:48:15

Yes.

00:48:18--> 00:48:19

Four minutes, have they left?

00:48:21--> 00:49:00

Allah Subhana Allah the 11th week there are 13 that the that the author mentions, we're on number 11. Allah Subhana. Allah says cut the F let me know let me know if you select him. Because you're on to the statement and Medina, you need to know for those who who via Kali Doom, the believers are indeed successful. Those who are not humble in their prayer, but I just use the translation that comes directly from the book, but those who have who Sure. And there's a lot and for sure, it means that they have presence of mind that they have a presence of mind. So they are attentive in their saliva,

00:49:01--> 00:49:47

those who turn away from worthless or vain speech, those who pay the cats, those who will levena Huni, Fuji him happy zoom those who guide their private parts, except from their wives, or their right hand possessions, in which case they are not blamed. But those who transgress them have gone beyond the limits or those who desire more than that they have gone beyond the limits. Who else are the believers that are successful, those who honor their trust and contracts and those who safeguard their prayers, which is different than what he started out with. He said in the beginning those who are what, attentive in this alive at the end he said those who safeguard their prayers such people

00:49:47--> 00:49:57

are the inheritors who inherit elephant, remaining in it timelessly or not forever time. So the qualities of the successful let's go the toy

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

English one presence of mind during prayer to giving ziggo type stop there real quick presence of mind or prayer quiet light there's so much that can be mentioned on this topic alone

00:50:15--> 00:50:21

for the ones who have them than on a phone in a messy you don't actually need that.

00:50:22--> 00:50:23

Shall I will remind you that it's a lot

00:50:26--> 00:50:28

of man case you didn't realize

00:50:31--> 00:50:44

presence of mine during the the prayer, right. And so that's both an action and get actions of the heart, which means that you are attentive and the actions of the limbs mean you're not fiddling around and doing.

00:50:46--> 00:50:54

You know, things that are not from the prayer and says we're about to pray, I'm just going to mention some things and shut up because there's a one of the scholars of the past.

00:50:56--> 00:51:38

He mentioned, the way that he attains who shorted salon he was asked how does he How do you get to short and salon I just thought that it's important to mention that he said first he makes a perfect will do or it does, it does his best to make will do perfectly. And even that as some of the some of our scholars used to mention that we've missed out on so much reward when making will do because we do it out of habit. Instead of thinking about the sins that have fallen off every limb of your body when you make them do and just be in there really feeling like you're preparing for salon, that you are cleaning yourself to stand in front of a banana. Right? I mean, just that that spiritual

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

preparation that goes into it is important and it starts with

00:51:42--> 00:51:43

all right.

00:51:44--> 00:51:49

The second thing that he mentioned, and I've just mentioned him very quickly and so on no particular words

00:51:50--> 00:51:53

that he stands until he's at rest.

00:51:55--> 00:52:01

He imagines the tab of being directly in front of him and then he says Allahu Akbar

00:52:03--> 00:52:05

he's standing on the slot

00:52:07--> 00:52:08

with the Hellfire below

00:52:10--> 00:52:13

with Jenna in front of him and the Angel of Death behind

00:52:15--> 00:52:22

them, you can just prepare for a lot like that. And imagining that it is your last prayers

00:52:23--> 00:52:33

is a different type of select. Then, you know, less let let us knock this out how people say

00:52:37--> 00:52:38

Philly stuff I'm sorry

00:52:40--> 00:52:58

for those of you who are not from Philadelphia, but But no, it's real. It's basically like, let's get it out the way not less enjoy the salon. Like the prophet SAW you sell them you say they'll be left behind every now and you bring us comfort with this with this salon.

00:53:00--> 00:53:02

Because it's tough. Stephanie that

00:53:24--> 00:53:24

Hello.

00:54:03--> 00:54:08

Oh

00:54:31--> 00:54:39

oh

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

Hi.

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

Now number two,

00:56:02--> 00:56:08

if you'll bear with me and Shall I will finish this in 10 minutes being spelled with a C sharp

00:56:09--> 00:56:53

number two things that can not givings a cat. So a setup for two more hands the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said that charity is a clear proof that is a clear proof, and a clear indication of a person's email because people don't give, except that they want to receive, people don't give except that they that they want to receive. So they're giving, they're not receiving when you give the cat when you give charity, you're not getting anything back in this life. But you have certainty in sha Allah that Allah azza wa jal is giving that back to you in the next life. And so it's an indication of a person giving away that love, for hope of getting it back from lost friends out not shown in

00:56:53--> 00:57:53

Venice Beach, and actually approximately Salatu was set up. So last the p mu E mental model had to use the theme and he said that a person's Eman will not be straight, it will not be Mr. T until his tongue is straight. So if a person's tongue is not straight, there's something wrong with his email, no ifs, ands, or buts. Now avoiding illicit relationships and indecent actions, right. And so here, the worst of those, as the author mentioned, is Xena. And that a person commits fornication or adultery. So again, here, what you have are a combination of qualities that some of them require that you do, and others require that you avoid, right. And that combination is important. And we

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

need to keep that in mind. When you think about growing your tree.

00:57:59--> 00:58:24

Growing that tree requires that you water it requires that you do things to help it grow. But also what that there are other things, there's this alien matter if you will, there are things that can that can come and destroy that tree. Even if for example, some people actually do things that hurt, they did put it around the tree, for example, I look pretty, but it's actually harming the tree. So there are things that you do

00:58:26--> 00:59:18

to help develop it in a things that have to be avoided. So that your Eman can continue to grow. Now, honoring one's contracts and agree and the author also spent a little time on that point right there and to the extent that a person honors his agreements is to the extent of his faith, let the man let a man know there is no faith there is no he man for a person who has no trust who did not fulfill his trust and honor his contracts not deserving the VENA net. So preserving the prayers here is is mentioning both the times that you pray on time and you pray according to the way that the profit is selected was legislated and see so here the author mentions.

00:59:19--> 00:59:37

Now the author mentioned, if you will, the constant cultivation that needs to happen. So there are other things that that are going to help your Eman grow but you're not going to do them on a daily basis. Other things that you do daily, that have to be there to last without as prescribed

00:59:38--> 00:59:46

because we need them the things that we need the most Allah subhana wa tada has made them obligatory upon us.

00:59:47--> 00:59:59

He's made them obligatory so we fulfill those obligations that are emailed row three discrimination, calling to a law and his religion, enjoying one another to the truth and enjoying one another to

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

patient's calling to the foundations of the religion and to the adherents of its laws through enjoying the good and forbidding the evil through this, that the servant become complete and compete for others, right and see so here with the author is addressing is what we cover and sort of philosophy. Right well answered in the in Central Africa. So all of mankind is that lost every single human being, except and that allows fantana excludes those who combine those four categories of what Eman and righteous actions, but during man and your righteous actions That's for you, that is what's going to help develop you that is what's going to help your salvation. And then what? And
