Have the Rila model when a stain or when I stopped poodle when I was learning English or audio Pacino will see it Imani not me I love
my little fella howdy Hola, Chateau La ilaha illallah wa whoa la sharika eyeshadow Anna Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira
and my bad praise a long season his assistance and we seek His forgiveness. And we seek refuge in the law from the evil of ourselves and our bad deeds. Whoever law guides, there is none that can lead him astray. And whoever leads astray there is no guide for him. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship, except for Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He is alone. He has no partners. Now bear witness that Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and messenger.
A lot of you have heard, Corporal Hadji are the words that we just started with
in the beginning of lectures, but may not recognize recognize the significance of the words that are being said.
And the fact that they're actually
at least one companion will accept that Islam when he heard what what will happen.
And he the words that a lot of times we just say and we don't give it any meaning or when the speaker is you starts in the beginning and Alhamdulilah and meadow and we just kind of turn off and wait for him to begin to speak these words actually lead someone to accept Islam. Does anybody know what his name is?
No. Anyone else is a companion by the name of Bama Abu Salah while the Allahu tada no and he was actually warned by his people don't go to Mohammed Salah there was a number because he's a madman. And perhaps he actually someone performed magic on him or something's wrong with him. So just leave him alone and Bama.
He actually has some concern for the Prophet Mohammed Salah line he was adamant he thought that maybe I can go cure this man because he used to perform some type of leukemia or reading over people. So he said, maybe I can, I can cure this madman. What they told him. And so he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for that purpose actually, of curing him. And when he got to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said some words to him and the prophets of the light it was saddam said in Al Hamdulillah Nakamoto and Astana, who when I stepped hill to the end of it, and he said, Well, law he I've heard the speech of magicians, and I've heard the speech of sources, and
I've heard the speech of the CO Han, which is a fortune tellers, he said, and this speech here can come from none other than allies with it has to be revelation, it has to have come from the Creator. And he accepted Islam, he stuck out his hand, he shook the hand of the prophet SAW the light of the sun as a form of beta or pledging allegiance. And so when you hear these words at the beginning of a lecture, they should mean something to you. This is not the time right now to talk about the meaning of petabytes of data, but maybe, at some point in the future and shallow data.
Before beginning the lecture, I also think it's important that
that this is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
myself, other brothers, we speak about the distractions of life and the everyday distractions that people and and i don't believe that there is a time in history
that compares to this time in terms of distractions. I don't think so. I mean, even not that long ago, if you wanted to be entertained, you had to go out the house to go to the movies or to go to a play or whatever the situation may be, and then the TVs came into the house. And so a person is able to watch whatever he wants and entertain himself and forget about life or whatever the situation may be right there. And the comfort of his own home.
with smartphones and tabs and everything else. Everywhere person goes. They can entertain themselves. Play games on the phone, internet, whatever the situation may be. Watch movies.
Listen to whatever they listen to 24 seven, distraction
if that is not from shape on and if a person doesn't just take a step back
and think, what do I do more every day?
read the news or read the Quran
What do I do every day more play games
or read the Quran, amin Subhana Allah the book that Eliza Joe sent down
as the final guidance for mankind, and Danny, we kind of just push it to the side. So the fact that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us to be here right now.
We have to recognize that as a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And thank him for that, because blessings increase with things and they decrease with crime, denying them and not recognizing the fact that it is a blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada.
One day I will say,
a lottery. radi Allahu Allah and he said that one day Why are we even having sufian while the Allahu anhu
went to the masjid, and he saw some people sitting in a circle, the helper Masjid
and he said, Man
What is it? Why are you guys sitting here?
And they said less than adequate Allah. So we've said we're sitting here to remember Allah Victrola.
Somalia, Mali Allahu Allah and said to them, la he met as lesser in the deck.
By Allah, there's nothing that you've had have sat down for except for that like you're sitting in the masjid just to remember lies with God is nothing else no dunya benefit or anything like that. They said, well, la Hema is lesson.
By Allah we have only sat down to remember a lot. So then why we are the low tide and who said to them in the limit, lift come to Metallica.
He said, I have not
asked you to swear by Allah, or asked you to make an oath. Because I don't believe you. Okay, I'm not asking you to swear by law because I'm accusing you of lying.
He said, but one time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Harada Coleman.
Film STD won't be held on.
He said one time the prophet SAW the sun and went out to the masjid. And he saw people got it.
And he asked them to prophesy Some ask them.
Now, what is it that has caused you to sit here and together?
They said jasna nether portal LA. One Meadow who Allah Maha Donna Lynn Islam, woman De La Nina. They said that we have sat here, or we are sitting here remembering Allah
and praising him for having guided us to his letter to Islam, and the favor of Islam upon us of the favor of Allah Subhana darna upon us by guiding us to Islam.
And just as a side note, indicates that when they talk about digital law, it's not doesn't mean that they're sitting around in a circle, saying Allah, Allah, Allah or something like that. But they're remembering the lives of his favours, talking about Eliza Joe reminding one another of Islam.
And so the province of the light it was sunset law he managed so come in there that
nothing has caused you to sit here except for that to remembering Allah. So Allah He knows less than a letter. By law we have only sent for this for this reason to remember Allah.
So the prophets of light it was on him said to them in the lamb as elephant in the lamb so much and lacking. we're lacking attorney gibreel was Bharani and Allah had you bad he be kumala Malik.
The prophecy seldom said to them.
I'm not, didn't ask you to swear by law or to make an oath. Because I don't believe you or because I'm accusing you.
But jabril came to me. And he told me that Allah azzawajal
brags about you all to the molag to the angels
It's collected by an email Muslim. And so here
and it reminds me of something else. And I'm sorry that to not get on the topic immediately, but I think that it's critical that we recognize the importance of these type of gatherings to remember Eliza gel and to increase in knowledge, you know, the fact that Eliza Jen, it may seem strange that Allah would mention people who gather to the ages. But if you think about the first story, and the Quran, what is the first story in the Quran?
She opened up massage.
Again, Adam and Eve type before Eve just add on.
Yes, exactly. So the first story in the Quran we've caught up bucola is in the
in the chat, you know, fill out the halifa Carlota, Java uctv. iOS, we could get to the end of it. It's It's the story of the creation of Adam and Eliza Joe is talking to the angels and telling them that he's going to create
a halifa and the earth and they said, so last panel data you're going to create someone who uses Wi Fi is going to cause corruption in the lands and so I lost track of data in Nish Allah momella title, I know what you don't know. So last round of data is mentioning his
notice this, he's mentioning his knowledge. What is the virtue that Allah Subhana Allah gave to Adam over the angels?
Right there in the beginning, sort of why lemma, Adam s marcoola.
And so Allah taught Adam, the names of everything, to model the homemade MLA. And then he showed these things to the angels, okay, that he taught Adam the names up.
And he told the angels to tell me what these things are, in quantum solidity, and if it is that you are truthful about what you said about Adam, to the end of it, the scholars of Tafseer mentioned that the father of the virtue that was given to Adam over the angels in that particular situation was in was knowledge. And so when the people come together, to get a piece, that knowledge
and to remind the remind themselves of that knowledge and Eliza Jill mentioned them to the angels.
It's almost as a reminder to the angels they look.
These were created with that virtue and they came together for that purpose. And so a lot as Joel mentioned them to the to the angel as it comes in another Hadith
that the Prophet said ally there was some said Mr. Ma como he basically will utilize Nikita Allah. We have two daughters Suna who baina whom inland as Allah tala who Sakina will have Fatima Malaika wah wah Nam la tabla de
Rosa Shia tamala Decker of Houma, la who FIM and see, the province I sent him said that there is not a people who gather
in one of the houses of Allah.
Yes, Luna keytab, Allah reciting the book of Allah and studying it amongst themselves, except that there is a tranquility that comes down Sakina that comes down, and that they are encompassed by the angels. So we are in the house of Eliza, for the purpose of studying the book of Eliza and the revelation.
And so we should believe it shouldn't be something that's like a
far off theological concept. We should believe that the angels are surrounding this gathering that we're having right now.
Because we believe in the unseen
well, that she gets home with Rama
and Rama, allies with Joe's mercy penetrates the entire gather to the point that many of the scholars mentioned in the explanation of this Howdy. That just by sitting in the circles of knowledge, it is a means of the sins being forgiven, because there is no way that Rama from Allah subhanaw taala could penetrate a gathering and leave people without having some of their sins forgiven.
What that girl whom Allah who Freeman Ender, and Allah Subhana Allah mentions them to those who are close to him, the angels
consider that consider what that means because
to bring the meaning a little closer,
if someone does something that is praiseworthy,
they didn't do it for
People to praise that they did it for Eliza. But they did something that was good. They did something that was good. And someone else goes and they, for example, they post it on a website or maybe it's on the front page of the newspaper and people are calling around saying Mashallah Did you hear about plans accomplishment, for example, whatever the situation may be, or something that he did, person feels good, that they are being mentioned by the people in a good light.
People are saying good things about them. And they feel good about that. And all of you have had that experience, whether it's for your children, whether it's for yourself, but you know that when people mention you in a good light, it feels good, like, if allies would
in a good light
to the Malaika. There is there anything that's greater than so
brothers and sisters in Islam, let us be diligent and seeking the knowledge of Islam. It's not something that we should take lightly. And we shouldn't expect that when you come for a gathering of knowledge with all of the blessings that we talked about the tranquility and the mercy from Allah subhana wa tada and Allah azza wa jal mentioned that you are bragging to the angels and manually the law will be hired on you for up to 15 as the prophet SAW, you saw them say whoever Allah was good for you gives them fit of the religion. You should not come to these type of gatherings with all of that reward, expecting to be entertained, or expecting the whole thing to be something that's light
hearted. You know, Imam Malik Rahim, Allah tada was asked the question, and he said,
I don't know. When he was asked, I don't know the answer to the question. So the person said it's a Metallica FIFA was the word. It's a lightweight issue.
And he meant Malaga upset.
And he said there is no such thing as knowledge. That is a thief. That is light. There is no lightweight issues, Eliza gel set in sanuki, islandica. polenta Tila,
we are going to send down to you a heavy statement, there are no light weight issues. So again,
we should come to these type of gatherings, not expecting that we're going to be entertained but expecting to learn something that we can take and implement and our religion.
The topic that I've been asked to speak about tonight
is a topic that's difficult
to speak about.
Even the scholars have a very difficult time defining exactly what this topic is. And you all know that the topic is a typical, all right, which was translated as trust in Allah.
I didn't translate it as that I'm going to leave it as to Oracle for right now. Until we get to the definition that has been offered by many of the scholars and Ulzheimer data
commands us with a tawakkol and many I attend the Quran. And
as you know,
the forms of worship
are not just ritual things or what may appear on the outside for example, Salah someone can see you makes a lot or someone can see you make Hajj for example, there are other events that are called BIA, okay, they are from the heart. Now, the manifestations will be on the limbs. But those acts of worship they start in the heart and these are from the most important acts of worship. Those events are those acts of worship that are that are from the heart and this is why tickled Islam it's a meal I handle a lot of data when talking about to walk and I'm going to read exactly what he said. He said we'll cut out a lot who but luckily for us it is in our album I mean, Mr. Bill will do
he said that Allah Subhana Allah commanded us with tawakkol and many irons in the Quran, more so than he commanded us with making buddhu
or making guzzle from Geneva which is the
Elgin ABA is the state of impurity.
See the greatest state of impurity so I lost her dad as important as we'll do is and as important as making lsil is Allah Subhana Allah commanded us in the Quran with to welcome more than he commanded with Allah will do. And also so I'm going to mention some of these ayah and hopefully you'll follow along and shallow tada to see the importance of to welcome the first eye is an alien life. When Allah subhanaw taala said to the prophets of light, it was so funny man I mean Allah lintel will open tomorrow, one legal villain for boomin Holic fairfull and whom was stokfella who Masha we don't feel ama for either as MTA photowalk killala in Allah you hibou alma tacchini type and this I lost
her data says so by the mercy of Allah Fabi mallamma Tim and Allah Lin tilahun Jani you were soft with them. And if you were harsh and you were rough, they would have ran away from you, Danny, meaning the companions.
Then a lost power to Allah commanded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to pardon them, and to ask a law to forgive them. What shall we don't feel mo and seek their advice in different affairs.
After seeking their consultation, for either as m two once you come to a conclusion, a firm conclusion on what it is that you want to do,
picture to work in a law firm either as MTA but what can Allah then
put you to work in Allah insha Allah how you hibou l mucho akili Indeed Allah loves those who are those who have to work. Alma tacchini
The next is right after that Subhana Allah Thank you think about the connection between the two eyes. El Soto como
el sorta como la. Follette, Holly Villa Ko, if Allah age,
then there is no one that can defeat you know, if Allah aids you, there is no one that can defeat you. It doesn't matter what they bring, it doesn't matter if the enemies from the east and the west come together with everything that they have numbers and preparation, no sort of formula for that lalibela notice the relationship between this and to
what he has do for Mandela de your pseudo human body. But if Allah leaves you You're welcome and
the Arabs in general they have different ways that they explained Islam but basically what it means is that
at the time of need someone just leaves you they don't they don't help you at the time of me so if if allies with job does not help you at your time of need the who is it that can help?
for Mandela, de Yasuda coming back who is it that can help you after lots of data has left you to yourself? What does Allah subhanaw taala say after that while Allah He fell yet what kill wildlife and yet what kilometer kilo? So upon Allah
let those who have to walk all day to walk and I'm leaving as to Walker for reason.
But I want you to think about this. I lost her Donna says why law he failure to work.
And in a law
put your to local or upon a law, put your to local play. Is there a difference between I'll use English terms like they have on the on the dollar bills? Is there a difference between In God we trust and we trust in God?
What's the difference?
Is there the
time exclusivity that he said in English?
Do you know the difference before we take something that you may be more familiar with? Do you know the difference in fact how you say it? And in fact how you say iaca nabooda? Right. Well, he yakka Mustang. Is there a difference between that and saying not Boudicca one is that unique?
No, no, no without a doubt without a doubt but
But that's, that's beside the point of understanding the words that are being used in his eyes. So, Abu Musab zolo halen
there's this concept of exclusivity. What What does that mean, though, what it means is that
when you put the object before the verb, okay? Then what it means is that the verb is exclusively for that, that object or if you use, for example, in this case, a prepositional phrase that would normally come later in the sentence, and you move it to the beginning, then at that point, it becomes exclusive for that particular thing. So to use fancy hands, then go back to this if you say for example, not Boudicca, we worship you right you can say we worship you and we worship some other things. Okay, that would work from a from a linguistic perspective. But if you say Yak and nabooti It is You we worship than the meaning of that is that it is you alone that we worship and that's
probably why you see in a lot of translations they put a loan in parentheses or maybe they just put a loan. So likewise here a law says while a law he failure to work on the torqeedo upon Allah
put your to work meaning that you cannot put to walk upon anyone else. And the reason why it is an interesting point
is because if we translate to what cool is trust right? Is it okay for you to then say I trust you?
Do you get the point or you don't get it? Because we can only if we use it if we say that to walk Polish trust
and we can only trust in Eliza? Is it okay for us to say to someone else? I trust you? Well, here we get another point. Is there a difference between trusting in something and trusting something but that's I it really isn't linguistic gymnastics. I don't want you to think about it like that. Because we have to also just like we purify our hearts and we purify our worship for lies with Joe we have to make sure that the words that we use also are correct and the promise of life some mentioned this in many different places we don't have enough time to go into all of it right now.
For the sake of time
allows aligns with john mentions in some other if we just go through them very quickly you shall altana he says what talk kill lol hi Isla de la moods and put your tawakkol upon or in the one who is high who is alive and who will not die. Allah subhanaw taala also says what TOEIC tell analyzes Rahim and put your trust in the one who is Allah Aziz Almighty or Rahim, the Merciful Allah Subhana Allah says in the minimum you know Allah Da Da Da Da Hua Ji Let's kulu way that to leotard am I to say that to me mana while Allah be him, work alone. So the believers are only those who if Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioned, then their hearts
tremble out of fear of Allah without and out of the hope in Him way that to do that am I to say that to me, man, and when they hear his verses, recite it and increases them and their Amen And upon their Lord, they put their time
and money other if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a Hadith, which is considered to be
one of the most important ahaadeeth as it relates to activity and understanding what to what cool means.
The hadith of Omar Mahdi Allahu tada and who said that he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say,
lo and nickel contento Kelowna ally, Hakka tawakkol
latos it Tim command turas apple pie. If you were to put your trust or your tawakkol in Allah subhanahu wa tada the way that you should you would be provided for the same way that birds are provided for total do females on what tobyhanna they go out in the morning hungry on empty stomachs and they return with full stomachs.
Mmm admirable. Hey Mahalo to Anna and commenting on this hadith. He says that this hadith because some
People actually use this idea to say, yeah, if you just put to local upon a lot and without it, then don't do anything, just sit around and wait for something to happen. And that's the concept of
putting or relying upon Allah subhanaw taala, depending upon Allah subhanaw taala
email I haven't said that this is not an evidence for that as a fact, as a matter of fact, it is evidence to the contrary.
the birds go out in the morning, for what purpose do they stay in the nest?
No, they go out on empty stomachs, for what for the purpose for the purpose of provision looking for their provisions.
And then they come back and they are upon or they are on full stomachs. And so this Hadeeth does not give any credence to those people who say that if you put your trust upon Allah some kind of data, then that's enough that you should not do anything or you should not look at cause and effect and these type of things like that No last kind of data created the causes, and he created their effects. So a person should go out and seek His provisions from Allah subhana wa Tada. But he should not depend upon himself or his strength, or his ability, or his degree, or his connections, or his skin color or his nationality, or whatever the situation may be. He puts his trust in Allah subhanho
wa tada and he goes out and does the things that Allah subhana wa tada has given him the ability to do
so if we understand these ayat that we've heard in some of these a hadith
it is important to understand
how how to walk will relate to Islam and how to walk will relate to one's a man. can a person be a Muslim? If he doesn't have the quality of tuukka What do you think?
Yeah, so a person can be a Muslim, but not really have to walk upon last minute it can a person be a Mothman
a true believer without having to local upon Allah subhanaw taala No, but he can be a Muslim hi maybe let's listen to what even okay am Rahim Allah to Allah said about that.
He says I'll try to just
go through it as succinctly as possible so that we can get the concepts
he says that tawakkol is Min laoise him and he man woman probably yet Jani, that it is from the necessary
aspects of email that a person has to occur, because the last time a data says while ally effetto ahkello in control mode meaning a panela put your tawakkol your trust to your dependency reliance, if you are believers, meaning that
meaning that if a person does not have that aspect then they cannot be a believer.
For Jaya to akula Shelton, amen. So even though claim says so Allah in this ayah has made tawakkol a condition of Amen.
And so that indicates that a person who does not have to walk will
does not have Amen.
We got that. Does that point clear? Today? What about Islam?
And another I
will call a Moosa call me
in kuntum edmentum biLlahi filing Hito Akello in kuntum Muslim
all Are you familiar with the story of Muslim fear their own and
the Sorcerer's and everything that was happening?
Well at that particular time, the
people of Moosa they believed that Moosa was was was upon the truth, they believed in Islam.
Listen to these if I'm I'm in any Moosa in that area to men comida COVID Memphis Oh, no mother, EMF Tino. So only a few of them. believed in Moosa
because they were scared of fear. They were scared to fit our own and his his entourage, if you will.
They were scared that they would be
persecuted by fear owning his entourage? Well in the fear on the line and fill out well in the hula minimus leafiness. Iran is a, he was a call to action. Okay, he was someone who was proud. And he was from the transgressors. Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say after that we'll call him and say a coma. So now we have this group of people who they know that Islam is the truth. And I'm not talking about the Islam as in the *tier, that the prophecy saddam came with, but all of the prophets were sent with Islam. So they believe that Musa came with the truth, but they were scared that they were going to be persecuted. And so they didn't want to go with Moosa for fear that they would be
persecuted. What is what is that a lack of selective tawakkol? It's a lack of sawako. And so Moosa says people call me and come from Edmonton Villa, oh my people, if you truly believe in Allah, finally he took kalu then put your trust in Him or put your token in him in control Muslims. If in fact you are Muslims, now if in fact you are believers, but if in fact, you are Muslims, and that's why after this I will pay him says for Giada de la Seattle Islam at tawakkol so he made the indication or the evidence the proof that someone's Islam is valid at two o'clock that a person has to walk upon Allah Subhana who was at play all of these
is that we've listened to
about to local but what does what is to local?
What is to welcome Can anybody give me from what you've heard from what you've listened to? What do you think to Oculus
just even even if you don't have a full definition now
reliance upon Eliza Joe good
to depend upon a law fully
Uh huh. By what?
Okay, nice. So, what the brother said we have one that says reliance upon a law and the Brotherhood says dependence upon allies with Joe by using the means that a lot of data has given you to follow the process of life is something I need to do the things that you should do, but not that you believe in those means are not that you depend upon those means you depend upon Eliza good Anyone else? Anyone else?
Good having good expectations from Allah, Masha Allah
interestingly enough, each one of these definitions has been mentioned by one of the scholars at least if not the Sahaba themselves Anyone else?
To know that Allah has power over things they have mentioned that as well now
again, put your trust in Allah Al
I didn't get the second part.
You said to put the trust in a lot more than what
yeah, I'll get the I'll get the inshallah anyone else five Yes.
Okay. So, to walk there has to be only four lies with Na
Na five good, all of what was said was what was generally good and shallow Tada, even I bet somebody a lot of time and humor, he described the tilaka
take a step back.
Like I mentioned in the beginning,
to walk on because it is a
it is a matter of the heart. Or because it is a it is a is an action that is done by the heart. People find it very difficult to articulate the way that they feel a lot of times, okay, so it's not so you're not describing something that is that you can see on the outside. And as a result, it becomes people's way of articulating what is felt in the heart is going to vary from person to person is why you're gonna find that. Maybe no two different no two definitions given by the sky.
are the same, but they still give us a very good picture of what a typical is. So instead of looking for a definition, then for Tilak, well, maybe we should be looking for a description, as opposed to a definition because the scholars of Islam, and before even in other sciences, they say that a definition has to be jammin men, meaning that it has to be
comprehensive, but exclusive at the same time.
And I'll give you an example. Because I think this is important, I think it's important for us to understand certain concepts.
So if you look at, if you look at, for example, if someone asked you what a car was, and you said, well, it's
it's a vehicle that that has four wheels in a motor and a transmission.
Is that a good definition for a car? I mean, is it comprehensive?
A vehicle, a car, a car, you could say is something that has four wheels or passenger vehicle, okay, that has four wheels of
transmission and in an engine? Every car has four wheels, right?
I'm, I'm asking it, actually, but I think I'm right. Every car has four wheels, and it has a transmission and an engine. Right. Okay, so that would be considered to be comprehensive that is Gemini. Okay. But is it exclusive? Does it prevent other things from coming into the definition? So for example, those little, what I call it the four wheelers that people drive
out in the desert, that ATVs or whatever they had, what would you consider that to be a car? No, most people don't consider those to be car, but it does have four wheels, and has an engine and it has a transmission. Okay, but it's not considered to be a car. So the definition that we originally gave, it was comprehensive, it included every, but it wasn't exclusive. It didn't prevent other things from coming into the definition. And so therefore, a lot of times when we look at definitions, because it's critical, every subject that you'll study in Islam, every Islamic science is going to start with a definition and you need to understand why they start with these definitions
so that you can understand the science that you're studying, or so that you can understand the particular topic that they're dealing with. So what to what
I don't have nor have I found a definition that I can just say is Jammie men, meaning that it is comprehensive and exclusive. At the same time. However, the definitions that we do have or the descriptions that we do have will help us to get a better concept of what tawakkol is and then how we can what we can do to attain it and Charlottetown even at best for the low tide and who said that tawakkol is a thicker tubular, it is that you have trust in a lot how to Allah or that you have confidence in Allah subhana wa tada hassanal bacillary Rahim Allah was asked about tawakkol and he said a Riba and Eliza It is to be pleased with Allah subhana wa Tada. Other scholars said Allah tala
Kula has not been the biller he has the ledger like Abu Salim said that tawakkol is to have good expectations to good thoughts, good opinions about Allah Subhana who want to add
one of the Salah was asked about
a tawakkol Mab, Anita emblica had a minute tilaka What have you done to develop a talker?
And he says, what is it that you see to work well to be he said there are four things. He said I linked to an arrestee layer Hulu ad for us to act Amala he said, I know
that no one else is going to be able to eat my provisions. Yeah, and whatever is for me from Alaska dialect no one else will get that. And so I don't put a whole bunch of hum, I don't become anxious over my risk. I don't worry about my risk, my provision because it's going to come to me from Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Well, I live to anomaly lay Amala
Lady for NMS golden v. And I know that no one else can do my actions for me. And so I'm busy doing what I have to do. I'm busy doing my actions or my deeds, because no one else can do them for me, and I know that death is going to come to me, both, surprisingly, unexpectedly, so, and obey the rules. So I am going to race death in a sense that I'm going to do the things that I need to do so that I'm prepared when death comes to me. He says, and I know that I am being watched by Allah subhanho wa Taala and everything that I do for animals to him. So I am shy of my lords of Hannah who wattana and this is how he looked at a tour de
Lima acmella haimo la said that talk pollutive wheedle mo de la he gelatin out what what what Tico to be He it is that you surrender your entire affair to Allah Subhana Allah and put your trust in Him and there are many other definitions. The most comprehensive of those definitions
is a definition that is given by a man said to him or allowed to add who was
of all Have you heard of shaker they mean humble solid with a mean hey Malala he was the sheriff of poseen at that time, it was the shape of the earth I mean a lot humble in the shape of Sam and other Misha
he says that this would be the last definition but try to wrap your head around this particular definition inshallah tada because it is the most comprehensive of the definitions and then we'll talk about how we can what we can do inshallah tada to
gain to local in our lives.
I said to him, oh law says, the reality of a tawakkol Allah or true dependence upon Allah Subhana Allah
is that the servant knows that a law is in command of everything. So it starts with knowledge. Okay, and think about this because as we talked about how to gain to a cold it's, it's a process, okay? It starts with knowing that a lot as it will gel is in command of everything.
And that whatever Allah Subhana Medina wants to happen wills to happen, then it's going to happen, and that whatever he does not decree will not happen.
And that Allah Subhana Allah is the one that brings benefit and harm and he is the one who gives and withholds well in the hula, hula quwata illa Villa and that there is no mind or strength except with a lot of Hannah who would add like, this is the aspect of knowledge knowing these things.
After this knowledge,
he has to depend with his heart. Yeah, Timothy Alby he added a
few jlb Masada he Dini he will dunya or he definitely muda then he has to make his heart depend upon Allah subhanahu wa tada alone and getting the beneficial aspects of this Deen and his dunya and, and repelling any harm.
And yes, it Hi it'll we'll talk with Robbie and he has to put the utmost trust in His Lord Subhanahu wa tada in acquiring anything it is that he wants.
And with all of this, his knowledge and with his heart depending upon Allah subhanho wa Tada. He has to put forth effort, FIFA is bad enough yet to do the beneficial means that will help him to achieve his goals. And illogical himolla to Allah mentioned the definition that was that was similar to the definition of cod pipe. Let's break that definition down very quickly. The definition kind of has three parts. Do you remember the three parts?
I heard someone over this direction. Just one Give me one time ha ha. knowledge of what?
This is critical. This is critical because the prophecy is
taught even at best
how to have to walk. And so we need to get it from this definition so that we can see it in his teaching to him and I bet like anyone else
Na, na mana and in this in this in this definition of sanity, the first thing is what knowledge, but knowledge of what?
Ah, there are laws and command of everything and that whatever he wills will come to pass, and that whatever last minute data has not decreased will not happen for you type. That's the knowledge of what if you want to talk about jabril for example, when he went to the province I sent him in he asked them about email, what category does that fall under?
The things that we just talked about, amen in what
type of course the man will lay, but what what part
to know that whatever law wills
I said, it's very good. It is directly related to an Amen bill cutter
the belief in Eliza Jo's decree, a person cannot have to walk, it's impossible to have to walk all without having a proper belief in the cutter, and see
I'm mentioning this right now because a lot of times we compartmentalize Islam too much to the point that you know, we don't see the connection between things, you cannot have to walk all without having an email cutter and the stronger get a man in the car that is the stronger You
will be. Alright, so that's the first part is and the second part is the the heart. It's the manager who I love that you that you make your heart truly depend upon Allah subhana wa tada and you'll be tested. You'll be tested, you won't be left alone to say that you believe and not be tested, they will times will come
when you will talk about at tawakkol upon Allah subhanaw taala and and how you depend upon Allah. And Allah will test you will you buckle
to whatever the situation and the circumstances may be? Will you see your risk your provision is from something that is haram.
Because Allah, Allah will test you like that, here it is, Father, you wanted more provisions or you're, you're struggling and you need this. And so something Haram is put in front of him. And some of the scholars even though I didn't mention the definition, they said at to what cool is to not disobey Allah
and your seat and you're seeking of risk, and you're seeking for provisions.
So, if a person seeks his provisions through means that are harangue, then that indicates a lack of too tight. So we have that first aspect of knowledge. And then we have the second aspect of the heart being truly dependent upon Allah as an adult. And then the third aspect is to do or to perform the beneficial means that Allah subhanaw taala has provided for you and giving you the faculties to to use to perform whatever deeds need to be performed.
what time is the
three moment hamdulillah. So if you think about these aspects, all of them are mentioned in the famous Hadith, of an eye bass, or the Allahu taala and human. When the prophets of the lion it was suddenly said
to him, and I bet lamb in New animoca Kenny met a young man, a young man, I will I'm going to teach you some words. And notice that they're probably Sonam is talking to the lamb. Lamb is someone who has not reached the age of puberty yet. And so he's teaching even at best these things while he's young, and instilling in him this aqidah this belief that the Muslim should have, he says, to even Ibis
for the law,
the famous heavy if you protect the boundaries of a loss of power with Allah then Allah subhanaw taala will protect you. If you protect the boundaries of Eliza Joe, you will find him in front of you to do who to jack edessa ltfs anila if you ask, then ask Allah alone will either stay interested in biller and if you are seeking assistance, then seek assistance only from Allah and know
and know that if the whole oma is terminated as if they all came together to benefit you with something, they will only benefit you with something that a lot of data is already written for you
and if they come together to harm you, they can
Only harm you with something that Allah Subhana data has already written against you roofie it after them? Well, Jeff, it's a sort of depends had been lifted and the paper is dry
or the Yes, the paper is dry. So,
there are different aspects in this Hadeeth all of them go back to a man will cutter and then at tawakkol and how to attain the will I will I have allies with Jim, on how to become a wealthy. Now, I know that this term is used very loosely and it was not used at the time of the promissory settlements. But it is the term that we use as a mindset. And either the shorter term, the legislative term for that is a Morrison, many of us, many of us have very low aspirations for ourselves.
And we don't you know, we just are sufficed with the very least that we can do in Islam and not striving for for more than that, but all of that depends upon your belief in the color of Allah Subhana Allah, how you put your two welcome analyzer gel, how that relates to ATO heat edessa ltfs alila if you ask, ask Allah alone, to heat, that's the interface, the MLS, if you seek assistance, then seek that assistance only from Allah as it was, for the left, that's a better
to be conscious of, and be mindful of the produce of allies with all those boundaries that he sent, that he that he made.
To dude who today, you will find a lot of data in front of you, you will find the protection of allies with Joe you will find that is that what people will call it what he what we will call it, Sam, to the point that you worship allies with Joe, as though
you see him.
And even though you do not see allies with Joe, you know that he is watching over you, like what can we do to gain a tilaka? Look, they want to call it then
I thought it was the time I wish.
two things only inshallah maybe we'll be able to memorize two things to gain to local first is that you have to remove everyone from your heart except for Allah. And we'll talk about how to do that very quickly, sha Allah. The second thing is that there are certain that you have to be constant in
and asking the last person what data
to make you be from the true from people who have true to what call upon him. And there are there are two as the prophet SAW them taught us to say to help us get there type. The first aspect
people from your heart.
Everything from your heart. There's a there's an interesting Hadith.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,
Men Sunnah, Sana Alaykum marfin for kaffee Oh, whoever does something good for you, then compensate him
whoever does something good for you than compensated.
So again, just to recap, there are two main things that we look at, to gain to occur.
The first is that
the heart should not be attached to any of the creation whatsoever in terms of
attaining any good or repelling any evil, that it has to be related to Allah for that the heart has to be attached to Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhana wa tada alone.
in the Hadith where the prophets of Allah there was on him sermon, Sanai econ ma wolfen, for coffee or for ylim tecido Metro cafe owner who further ruler who had total unconquered Kapha tomo
Hadid is very interested and as a very subtle point that needs to be recognized. The problem is I saw him say whoever does something good to you, or good for you then compensate that person for what they have done for you. And if you do not have the ability to compensate that individual then make do it for that person. And until you feel that you've repaid them till you feel that you've repaid them you made so much do it for them that you feel like okay, I've repaid them because
alarma gel is going to repay them with better than anything that you could give them anyway.
Many of the scholars note that
it is from Islamic etiquette that we compensate people who will do good for us. But others have mentioned a very subtle point that is critical here. And that is that when someone does something good for you,
your heart becomes attached to them.
It's a natural, because it is a natural thing to become attached to the one who has done good.
And so you feel this kind of connection to them, or this type of attachment to them. But once you repay them, now you have cleared your heart, again, so that the heart is only attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is the extent that Islam goes to, to purify the heart from attachment to other than Allah as the origin. And notice that, notice that once and you actually probably have experienced this, when you owe someone something, when you or you feel like you owe them something that is a feeling that you have in your heart. And once you repay them, there's a different feeling that you have in your heart, you become back on on equal ground.
Obviously, Eliza, which is the one that has given you everything in the first place, and there is no way that you can repay them. And so the heart should remain with that feeling of attachment to Eliza gel because you can never repay him for the things that he has done for you and the things that he has given you. And if you don't believe what I'm saying to you, all you have to think about is your own body.
That you would not sell to anyone if someone needed eyes and they said I buy your eyes from you for 50 million, you're not going to sell your eyes for twice that much or anything for that matter. analyze what Joe is the one who gave you your eyes, there's no one you can repay, there's no way that you can repay him for that and the heart should remain attached to Eliza exam for that reason. And there are other ways that the believer goes about making sure that his heart is only attached to Allah subhana wa tada those are things that you should ponder as you read the Quran, those are things that you should ponder as you read the Quran because there are many is in the Quran, where
Allah subhanho wa Taala establishes himself as the only one that can benefit you, and the only one that can prevent harm from coming to you. And so those things have to be thought about. The other thing is be melasma too
frequently Muslim, and that is that you make dua for every single thing that you need to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala and that you are constant, and making that
some of those do as inshallah Tada.
Like, it's the harder for example, it's not enough time to go into it's too hot and what it means but many of you have heard of St. Hata, which is the do II that you make, before a decision
that you put your trust in the last pilot data in that decision that you make. And while it's too hot, it could actually use its own lecture by itself to talk about the belief in Qatar, and to the end of it that is existing in our present in istikhara. Another da.
And this one is is important, because the prophesies alone, or it was encouraged. The Muslims are encouraged to say this
every day, twice a day, in the morning, and in the evening.
Abu Dhabi, that while the alarm of China and who said mancala either. Us baja emsa way there has to be a Lola Eva Hina who I need to occulta horrible option Avi sabarmati kefa Hola, Hu, Ma Ma who, and this is collected by Abu Dhabi, with a authentic chain. It is narrated on Abu Dhabi, put the scholars in who's a campaign he's
but the scholars say that
what he mentioned that this Hadeeth could not have been mentioned, or he could not have had this knowledge except that he got it from the prophets of Allah it was something so is what they say, Who am oh cool from Allah who are referred, meaning that it is stopped at the companion the companion is the one that narrated but it is if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it, he said, Whoever says
in the daytime or in the morning, and in the evening, has to be Allah and Allah is sufficient for me. La Ilaha Illa who
there is no deity in truth except for him.
Lay he took Celt I have put my trust in Him multiple offs allow Him and He is the Lord of the great throne whoever says this seven times the day seven times in the night then Allah subhanahu wa tada will relieve him of everything that worries him but you it's not just saying it is not just saying it as in you were speaking Chinese or Japanese or another language you don't understand. You need to understand what you're saying when you say Huskie Allah Allah is sufficient for me and you remind yourself of that seven times that there is no deity
in truth except for him. Allah He took Celt in him I put my trust and that you mentioned what are the what is the US I mean think think about the creation of the how magnificent the options think about how small the earth is think about how small we are and relative to the earth. So all of these things are meanings that should come to our minds when we say these these these types of eyes but we should we should say them as the process of lightning with some instructions instructed Likewise, the province of lighting was instructed Fatima I'll be allowed
to say in the morning and then the evening yeah how you how you bureaucratic estery us literally shut Nicola who was a kidney FC talofa Thai
as Heidi is hasn't are graded as a good Hadeeth hasn't had Eve by shekel Bernie Rahim Allah and other scholars.
Yeah, hi. was the name a name of Eliza gel? Yeah, hi, yah, hi, you
by your mercy.
I seek assistance,
rectify all of my affairs and do not leave me to myself, even for the blinking of an eye, blinking of an eye. So there's another way that you can learn to say in the morning, every morning and the evening, every evening before Mother's Day and to say it in the morning after budget. Likewise, La La La quwata illa villas the prophets of the light it was some said that this is a treasure from the treasures of gentlemen. Let's collect the Bible Hardy and Muslim
La hawla wala quwata 11 and understand what that means that there is no mic and no strength except with the lies or jump. So you surrender your power to the power of allies when you recognize that everyone else is just
part of allies with job creation that they have no means of harming you or no means have at you with other than that which Allah Subhana who
has already written for you? And then there's the Do I have some of the self likes AWB Rahim Mahalo to Anna, who used to say frequently a llama in ESL, oka Sitka. tawakoni it has no venedig Oh Allah, we ask you to give us this the drive side of jubair Allah we ask you to give us Sitka tilaka true dependence upon you and to have good thoughts and expectations about you again, just to end it off, Allah Subhana Allah says me So what kind of Allah He the whole hospital, whoever was there trust in Allah azza wa jal that he will find that Allah azza wa jal is sufficient for him. And along with that, it says in the lie you hibou Alamo terkini that a loss of power data loves the people who put
their trust in Him. So if Allah how much data
is sufficient for the one who puts their trust in Him and He loves the one who put their trust in Him? What station is greater than achieving the love of Allah azza wa jal and finding that he is sufficient for him that should be enough of an encouragement for us to learn more about to walk, to strive to gain to welcome and to put out to what Colin and ally as a gel alone.
