Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi
wa sudeley Kareem and about him in a shared line of a gym, this malaria man over him of his family is flooded us. Sidley, Emery Washington.
So chick fil a Lu here, what does she do here?
Raise your hand.
What is chick fil a
chick that a person may do? Just associating someone in the oneness of Allah in worship. So remember, that chick fil a Lu, he has basically sherkin worshiping Allah, whether it is by setting up a partner with Allah and worshiping that partner, or it is that believing in Allah known, however, directing certain acts of worship to other than Allah, or it is in the form of preferring others over Allah soprano. How, in the case of judgment or ruling commands, so on and so forth. Now, chick fil Olivia, is of how many kinds? There's two categorizations right. One is the first categorization which we just mentioned right now. And the second is major and minor ship. What is
What is major ship?
It expels a person from the fold of Islam. What else?
You should remember these points, you should not have to look at your notes. Just use your mind, think and reflect on the questions that I'm asking and answer me without looking at your notes. What else is your account if
it nullifies all of a person's good deeds? Yes.
Yes, no forgiveness except with doba in the right time, what else? Yes, eternity in the fire of hell. Okay. Now, what are the different kinds of sugar above the different kinds of sugar? How can a person commit major ship? Yes, in Dawa in making there are two other than a lot in dedicating an act of worship do other than Allah
in one's intentions. So performing an act of worship for someone other than Allah, whether it is some material gains or it is to satisfy people, whatever it may be, sacrificing rather than Allah and this is part of the first category which is, do directconnect worship do other than Allah? So one is in barwa, second is in Mija. And third isn't Bara in Acts of obedience, in muhabba, in love, so loving others, as a person should love Allah or loving others more than loving Allah, what else should have fear? So, can you give me an example of that?
Okay, so for example, a person is afraid of the jinn or some idols and because of that fear, he is directing worship to them, yes, in tawakkol shirt in tawakkol, relying upon others as a person should rely upon Allah good at hamdulillah. Now after shackle, Aqua is shaken as well. So
what is your Oscar? What's the definition? Every action that has been called, that is forbidden and it has also been called schicke. Now, you see in the Quran, sometimes we learn about certain actions, which if a person does that is called Khufu.
And we see that many Muslims are performing those actions. So does it mean that that person automatically becomes a caffeine? No. There are levels of coffee. There are levels of risk. Just like remember email, we learned about it. There are levels of email, there are levels of nofap there are levels of COVID there are levels of fiscal likewise There are levels of schilke there are certain actions which a person if he performs them, automatically, you will become careful. Like for example, if a person says I don't believe in Muhammad,
then that is what blatant COVID Likewise, if a person performs certain actions, then he has performed such shake, which has expelled him from the fold of Islam. But there are other actions which if a person performs, whether accidentally or deliberately, it will be considered chic, but it doesn't make him a non Muslim. So these are actions, words, actions of the heart actions of the limbs, or words, which a person may do say perform, whether out of ignorance or deliberately, but remember that they don't make him a non Muslim automatically. It doesn't mean that a person will be in hellfire.
Forever, it is a sin. It's up to a loss of panel data, whether he will forgive him with punishment or without punishment, it's up to Allah. However, we must remember that these actions do not make a person in non Muslim. So what are the different ways in which Assad is performed? First of all, in words, now remember that words, especially words that a person is used to saying that what happens, sometimes he says them accidentally, without even realizing. But just because those words have been said accidentally doesn't mean that they don't have any consequences. Like, for example, the people of Arabia, they used to worship lat reserve, okay, idols, every time they would have to swear an
oath, they would swear an oath by Allah, soprano Dada, or by these idols, it was a habit. All right. And these were words that they heard all of the time. Just like, we hear certain expressions all the time. And what happens, we start saying them without even thinking. Like, for example, the other day, I asked you, how's the weather treating you?
In reality, it's not the weather treating us whose decision is it? A loss of penalty, right? Or, for instance, we use the words like nature, whereas in reality, who is it that decides everything that runs everything, a loss of parental time, but we're so used to hearing these words, these expressions, these statements that we say them unconsciously, without even thinking. So, remember that such statements are what miners,
okay, which is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised that whoever swears an oath by that and then what should he say, blah, blah, then he should rectify that at very say, he will happen that follow the bad with the good, because that good will erase the bad. So if ever, we say such statements accidentally,
like for example, sometimes we say goodness knows.
Goodness knows who knows.
God knows. Right? But we are so used to hearing these words that we say that accidentally and afterwards we realize I shouldn't have said that. Was that a proper statement to say then as soon as we realize what should we do? La ilaha illa Allah so one is [???]can words another is [???]can actions. Now should can action miners should can actions is what an example of that is the player what is the player taking omens and believing in superstition? Now remember that, but by the way, what is w? What is omens? And superstition? What are they? That when a person thinks that a certain event an incident, okay, or an object is a source of good luck or bad luck?
It is from the workplace played is what a bird and the Arabs if they wanted to decide whether something was going to bring them good or not, what would they do? It would make a bird fly. If it flew to the right, they would say good luck, do it. If it flew to the left, bad luck. Don't do it. Now in different cultures, different societies, different incidents, different creatures are used for good luck, bad luck, right? Like, for example, in certain places have a black cat passes in front of you. And that is a sign of bad luck. Don't do it. If you're doing something and a girl starts crying, then what does that mean? Don't do it. It's bad luck, okay? In certain cultures, our
okay is taken as a source of bad luck, a star or whatever it may be. So, remember that all of this is superstition. And this is also a kind of shift. How is it check? Because a person is thinking that just because a black cat passed in front of me, something evil is going to happen. Whereas in reality, good and evil come from who? Allah subhana wa Tada. So here a person is making a partner with Allah, in what in good and evil coming
to see what I mean. So this is the reason why this should. Now many times people believe in such things. Why? Because these are things that they have heard from childhood, isn't it? So even though they know all good and bad comes from Allah. Theoretically, in theory, they know this, they believe in this, but just because they saw a black cat passing now they're just feeling uncomfortable in their heart. They're not at peace, okay. Now this is also a kind of shift, but it is not such a which will expel a person from Islam. This is however, setting up a partner with Allah and therefore a person should get rid of this habit. The Prophet sort of audison himself
aka omens is chick affiliate I do chick taking omens a ship taking omens a check. Every one of us has some superstition, the prophets of Allah seems that every one of us has some superstition. Because sometimes it happens that a person has come. And we think that's not going to become so nervous. And that's it, I'm not going to be able to do anything. Now they're here, now this has happened, and things are not going to work out. So every person has some kind of superstition. Because we're weak. We're human beings. And it's also because of what we have been hearing all our lives. But he said, but a lot removes it by trust in Him. So at these times, what should we do?
trust in Allah remind yourself, no, a black cat can do nothing. Okay, the kind of a crow can do nothing. I trust on Allah, and Allah will protect me. If it is meant for me, it will happen. If it's not meant for me, it will never happen. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, He who stops from doing something because of belief in a bad omen has committed check. So what do we learn over here? That if you ever have such a thought, then what should you do? First of all, trust from Allah. And secondly, don't stop from doing what you were doing. Continue to do it. Because if you stop, then what are you doing? believing in that superstition? they asked what would be its explanation?
Meaning if a person has done this, like, for example, the person is going to ask someone for their hand in marriage, okay. And then as they're going, a glass breaks. And as they're going, they end up in a car accident. And as they're going, they see lots of growth. They're like, Oh, no, it's not going to work out. So they say, forget it. No, the wakulla the law, and what should you do? Go for it, if it doesn't work out for some other reasons, that is different, but you shouldn't stay away from it just because of these incidents. So the people asked what would be its explanation, meaning of a person has done this in ignorance, what should they do now? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said
he should say, or Allah, there is no goodness, other than your goodness, and there is no olman other than your own, and none worthy of worship other than you. So in other words, revive your email, revive your email and Allah. And one of the ways of doing that is verbalize it, say to yourself, because when you say things to yourself, then what happens? You start to believe them, right? So if you are afraid, and you tell yourself, I'm not afraid, then really you won't be afraid. Another example option in of all is going to a fortune teller and affirming what he says, who is a fortune teller?
Someone who will tell you about your future. Okay. So the prevalence of autism said he who visits a fortune teller and asks him about anything whose prayers extending to 40 nights will not be accepted? How is this ship?
How is it similar, that a person believes all good and evil comes from Allah? Okay. Everything that will happen in the future is part of Allah's decree. But he goes to someone to find out what will happen.
And then he believes in them. And this is something that has been forbidden. So this is [???]can.
The profit sort of audits and I'm also set this Hardison was not that many attacca Hainan for South Dakota who be my cool Papa cafaro. Bhima owns Allah Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that whoever goes to a kahin, a soothsayer, fortune teller, and he confirms what he says, meaning he believes in the fortune teller, then this person has disbelieve in what was revealed to
them. Another example is of shark inactions wearing an amulet a ring a thread, or it's like why for the purpose of good luck or protection. And this is basically part of atomic talismans. a domain name, which is the next point is that both are submitted a domain name as a Florida Dyneema and the Mima is basically something that is worn or hung with certain words written on it or within it. Like for example, a piece of paper that has something written on it, it is folded, and it is stitched up in a piece of leather and that is hung with a thread and that thread is worn around the wrist or the neck or it's hung somewhere in the house. Why for the purpose of protection, okay, the Arabs they
used to put these things around their children, why to protect them from evil
and to protect them from the shopping. Now, any person remember who does this, what that they are wearing something why, whether it is in the form of recovering, I for example, certain stones people say that if I wear it, my mood gets happier whether it is in the form of a ring or
A thread a necklace, whatever it may be, for this purpose, then this is also kind of shift. How is the chick I was a trick similar that a person thinks that because of this ring because of this thread, I will be protected because of this thread, I will receive height I will receive goodness, whereas, all of these things are in his hands in the hands of a loss upon
into the Zuma is 38 we don't follow a method or Unum unduly lacking in a Rodney allaahu the Boolean Calhoun Akasha tuber that if Allah intensive evil for a person is there anyone who can remove that evil? No, no thread, nothing can Okay, no amulet nothing can. So remember whether it is worn or it is hung? Whether it is worn or it is hung somewhere in the house, in the car. It is all incorrect. Why because the prophets are allowed to summon he informed us about this. Now, we learned that one of the companions he was unwelded Mohammed Abdullah bin hurricane and someone came to him and said Lodi look the show why don't you hang something? Why didn't you wear something? Meaning with some
good words written on it for the purposes of protection for the purpose of cure? Why don't you do that? So he said, but there are local Shay and Wakata Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Darla cache in Ocala, LA, should I hang something when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that whoever hands something, then he will be interested to it? Meaning that Allah will not care about that person. He's relying on that thread. He's relying on that amulet, then he will be left to it. So why should I wear it? Meaning I'm not going to wear it. In another Hades in a Buddha would we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Menaka lithia tahu whoever ties a thread on his beard for
the same purpose. The Arabs used to do that. These days people wear something around their neck. This is what the Arabs used to do. Sometimes they would tie something on their beard. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said for in the Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a man who birdie and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has nothing to do with him. And we see this, that he also showed it in action that once a group of 10 people came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to take by to give him the Pledge of Allegiance. prophets of Allah Islam took the pledge from nine men, but one man he didn't take it from him. So when the people ask that, why didn't you take the pledge of allegiance
from him? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, because of this demeanor that he has
this amulet that he has, this is why I did not take the pledge of allegiance from him. So the man What did he do when he found out he instantly broke it and threw it away to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then to there and he said, Man nakatomi mutton forgot Ashoka that whoever hangs it aneema then he has committed ship faqad Ashoka, this is Muslim Achmed. Now, when it comes to the Mima remember that I mentioned this that whether it is worn or hung, it's the same thing. Now, there is another question for ionic or non ionic Is there any difference? Some scholar said there is no difference alternate Mr. Forbidden whether the words of put on a written in it or some other words,
why? Because the prophets are a lot of sudden he mentioned this in a general statement, man, I look at Tommy Martin Takata kapha, that whoever hangs a Dyneema faqad Ashoka he has committed chick. So they said his statement was General This is why the prohibition is also general. And also they said that it is not appropriate that a person should wear something with the Quran written in it, why? Because when a person is wearing, you know, an ammeter or something like that, then he wears it all the time everywhere. And he will be in certain places in certain situations where it would be disrespectful to those parts of the Quran that a person has them around him. So for example, he's in
the washroom, okay, or, for example, he's being intimate with his spouse, it is not appropriate that he has the Quran around him. So it would definitely show disrespect to the Quran. And this is the reason why also they discouraged it. And other scholars, they did allow it however, they set certain conditions for the set. certain conditions vary, but we see that are the two, it seems better and safer. that a person avoids it because
The waves of cure of treatment are what? The Rukia sialorrhea. And what is that the prophets of autism? What did he do? He recited the Quran, he recited the Quran, he blew, and then he passed his hands over the affected area or over his body, that is a way that we are meant to protect ourselves that is a way in which we are meant to secure. And the thing is that when you are taking such
or such amulets from other people, how do you know what is written inside?
Many times it happens that people go to others, and they will give them an amulet or something to wear. And when eventually it is opened up. There's some weird symbols and weird names, strange names, strange words. And in the middle, there are certain Quranic verses. How do you know what you know? The other words mean? What are they referring to? Sometimes there are names of shopping, sometimes there are names of angels. And again, that is all what check? Because who should we be seeking cure from Allah soprano? Who can protect only a lot?
The question is that it? Can a verse of the Quran be hung somewhere? Or let's say some people have their you know, their pendants With the name of Allah written on them? Is that appropriate? Is that permissible, that you don't have any beliefs attached to them that if I wear it, I will be protected. So that makes it permissible. However, one must be careful again, that if you're wearing that necklace with the name of a lot written on it, and you are talking loudly, or talking or yelling at somebody, or you are going to the washroom, then again, it's disrespectful. All right. And if you're hanging it somewhere, the Quran, that's a verse of the Quran, then remember that it
should serve as a reminder for you, it should not just be a piece of art, to decorate your wall, it should have a certain purpose behind it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he recited with that, and he would blow on his hands and wipe his hands over himself before he went to sleep. And also when magic was done on him, he recited the Quran for the purpose of cure. There are other verses, like for example, I could see sort of the fact that there are other verses, the last verses of the book are the last two verses we learned about that whoever recites them in the night and they will suffice and meaning they will be a means of protection for him. So for example, like she mentioned, a
certain bracelet or a necklace with a certain stone in it, a magnet or something that gives you balance, basically, you see if there is some physical cause and effect, physical cause and effect. Okay, suburb that is clear, that is logical, then it's permissible. But if there is no clear suburb, okay, there is no physical, tangible, concrete, cause and effect relationship between the two,
then it's like a person who's relying on the unseen that is not correct.
But how can a color tell you what your mood is? It goes with your body temperature, right? And if a person starts believing, oh, I don't have my ring, what will happen to me? You see, then then this leads to tawakkol on the rink. You see,
I mean, if it's scientifically proven, there is a tangible, physical relationship of cause and effect. I, for example, medication. It's scientifically proven that if you have that medication, it should help you with your pain, it should relieve the pain. Now person doesn't think that, oh, if you have this, you know, somehow this bill has the power to heal you. No, it doesn't. It's, it's just that it will have a chemical reaction in your body, that will lead to the fact that your headache will be gone. Okay, so that's a physical relationship. But if it's non physical, if it's unproven, intangible, then we have to stay away from it.
You should read your morning evening of God. Because if you're keeping the verses of the Quran, in such places in your wallet, for example, and then you're sitting on your wallet, okay, that is not appropriate. So people tell you stories about you know, I wore this amulet and instantly I was fine. Or we put this we hung this outside our house. And since that day, no thieves have ever come. If somebody tells us a story such as that then we should look at this story which is mentioned over here, which is a Dana blow to learn how the wife of our beloved Miss Ruth told that Abdullah, who said I heard the messenger of a loss of the artist that I'm seeing in a recall what am I email? What
letter [???]can that spells charms and love potions? Okay, so Allah the basic love potions that will be given to the husband or the wife secretly so that they would have love for one another. All of these are what? She says no, she said, I asked why
Do you say this I swear by Allah when my eye was discharging, I used to go to so and so the Jew who applied a spell to me, and he applied it to me. And when he applied the spell to me it calmed down, meaning I saw the cure, it happened to me, I experienced it, Abdullah said, that was just the work of the shaman who was speaking it with his hand meaning your eye, and when he uttered the spell on it, meaning that man that Jewish man, then what happened shavon he stopped, because she'll find sometimes he hurts us, okay, physically even harms us physically, emotionally, why should we seek some cured some treatment we turn to someone for help, okay, when we turn to a loss of panel data
for help, then chavan is defeated, he has failed. And then because you see when people are weak, they think they wanted to do something, anything, anyone to relieve them. So, when a person goes to viola, for cure for relief, then what happens to upon instantly he stops, when he will stop, then a person will get better. Like for example, a person might say I've had these really severe headaches and the moment I entered this magician's room, my headache was gone.
It was gone. The moment I put on this amulet, I was fine. You know why? Because she upon was hurting you before. And as soon as you went to that magician, then Japan stopped. Because his mission is accomplished. He wanted you to do something wrong, he wanted to cancel out your email. So Abdullah said that was just the work of the devil who was faking it with his hand and when he uttered the spell on it, he dismissed it, all you need to do is to say, as a messenger of a loss of a lot of them used to say, and he will bet sir, Vanessa wash V, and the Shafi lashes in mesh FL, Shiva and laowa doodle sarcoma, that remove the harm or Lord of men and heal, you are the healer, there is no
remedy, but yours, which leaves no disease behind. So, at these times, which What should we do seek the cure from who the giver of a cure and that is only a loss of data. There are most known ways of treatment and there are late Muslim ways as well. So, we should go for that which is proven by the Sunnah, whether it is in the form of reciting certain verses are blowing on your hands and wiping them or reciting and blowing on the water and drinking that water. There are Muslim ways and there are also incorrect ways. And if you wish to learn more about the correct way of treatment, then there are resources available in Shell I can share some material with you, there are certain vectors
available which I recommend that you do listen to and jollibee will be helpful. Now, the third kind of sugar is sugar in the heart. So you see one is on the tongue, the other is through the actions and then the third is in the heart. And this is also called ship coffee.
What is should coffee hidden ship.
What is that hidden ship? Nobody can see. It's not an amulet that is worn. It's not words that are said it's hidden in the heart.
So what is that showing off? Rhea, Rhea and summer Ria is to perform an action in order to be seen by others. So for example, the person from Sala give soda, he fasts, he performs Hajj, why in order to be seen by others, because react is from rah, rah summer summer is to do something in order to be heard by people. So for example, a person performs an action before others why so that people talk about it, he can get famous people will hear about his good deeds or that a person
has certain words, so that people will be impressed by him, whether it is in the form of reciting the Quran. So, he or she decides to put on before others so that people hear that recitation, and they are impressed by his recitation. A person could be reciting in privacy, but they choose to recite in front of others, not that reciting in front of others is not allowed. But if a person deliberately recites before others so that others will hear and they will be impressed by his recitation, that is a problem. Or it is in the form of advising others or is in the form of conducting a holocaust or giving a lecture anything a person says words in order to be heard by
others so that people are impressed by him or her. That Wow, what a wonderful speech they did. What a wonderful class they got.
All right now, this
State is where in the heart This feeling is where in the heart. So this is a reason why, when a person performs an action, for this purpose, to be heard by others to be seen by others in order to impress others, this is a kind of shift.
Because all of a person's acts of worship should be producing only a loss of power. But when a person is doing something to please others to impress others and he's associating someone with Allah, all right, the Prophet sallallahu soundset had decent Bihari men, some Mara sama, Allah who be woman, Euro, a euro Allahu be whoever does something in order to be heard. Or whoever wants to make people hear about his good deeds, then Allah subhanaw taala will make people hear and whoever does something to be seen by others. And yes, a lot of pandai will cause it to be seen. Meaning Allah doesn't care about his deeds, he will not conceal them keep them secret between the servant
and himself Allah will let it be seen so that in the hereafter a person will have no reward for it. In total cost is 110. We don't put it in an official mythological you have La ilaha illa Huwa head Furman carrier juluca oB folia Milan William Saliba, while are usually very glad to be here.
He should not associate in the worship of his Lord, anyone at all?
What does it mean he should not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone at all? Meaning when he's worshiping Allah, then his worship should only be for who? Allah, not for others, that others become happy, others are pleased the prophets of Allah for them once he came out, and he said to the people, or people beware of hidden should beware of critical huffy the people asked or messenger of Allah, what is secret chick? What is hidden chick? He said, when a man gets up to pray, and strives to beautify his prayer, because people are looking at him. That is hidden ship.
he strives to purify his prayer. Why? Because people are looking at him.
And this is where we need to analyze ourselves, that when we are praying and privacy, how are we praying? And when we're praying before others, then how are we praying? When we're praying by ourselves? When do we pray on time? Or do we delay it? Or do we skip it completely?
And when we were praying with others, then when do we pray? When we're praying alone? How much do we pray? And when we're praying with others, then how much do we pray, if there's a difference, then there's a problem. There's a huge problem. And if there is no difference in the sense that a person strives to have who showed in, you know, when alone and also in front of others, then inshallah that's a sign that there's no showing off. Now, many times it happens, that we are performing something good by, for example, clutter in
and you get this thought that you have this thought people are watching. And I think that's why I'm prolonging my session. So I should shorten it and quickly finish my prayer. Because then I'll be showing off as it's ever happened to
people are watching, and this is why I'm showing off Therefore, I should not do this good deed or I should shorten it or I should leave it for later. And when later comes we have forgotten Has this ever happened? Now remember that this is also from Chopin, because first of all shavon once that we don't do good,
right. So when he fails in that
and we are doing good, then what does he want that good is
not accepted. So because of that reason, he makes us Sure.
Okay, now if a person is showing off, then again, chip on is victorious. And if she upon makes a person think you're doing this because people are watching, so don't do it, then again chip on is victorious is successful. Why? Because he managed to stop you. He managed to prevent you. So what should we do? Do what you have to do? And when a thought comes, people are watching me and I'm showing off I should stop? Then say are the Bill Nighy, Ministry of Energy
and remind yourself that no, I'm not doing it for people. I'm doing it for Allah. I'm not doing it for people. I'm doing it for Allah. Say it out loud sometimes to yourself. So that this belief is reinforced
profited a lot of freedom said in a half an hour, a half hour legal I should call us off. Indeed the thing I fear for you the most is mine.
The thing that I fear for you the most is what mine is.
The people asked, What is my ownership? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, as the showing of Allah will say to such people on the Day of Judgment, when he will recompense the people for their deeds, go to those whom you used to show off for in this world, and see if you find with them any reward.
Meaning, a person can only get the reward from the one who performs the action for if you do it for Allah, then you get reward from him. And if you do it for others, then on the Day of Judgment, Allah will tell the people, go to them and see if you can find any reward. What humiliation This is a reason why we learned that a Lost Planet Allah accept only that deed which is done sincerely for him. Remember, once the proper total audition was asked that a person fights so that he can be known as someone who's very brave or another person fights in order to gain booty and other person fights for the sake of Allah. So who is in the way of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the one
who fights for the sake of Allah, so that the Kalam of Allah is highest than that person isn't the way
that person's deeds will be accepted. And if a person has mixed intentions, then that is not acceptable, because Allah is pure, right? And this is why he accepts only that which is pure. And this is the reason why the measure of hidden check is more serious than the journey because the fitna of the job. Yes, many people will face it, but not everybody. But when it comes to react, hidden shake, in fact, every person, every person, suffers from it to some extent or the other. Because having a class is something that is very, very difficult. A person has to continuously strive every day, every moment, in order to have sincerity, and without sincerity, the Dark Void. I
will say that once the messenger of a lot of a lot of them came out to us when we were discussing the job, they were talking about the job. And he said, shall I not tell you of that which I fear for you more than the job? The people said yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said hidden ship. When a man stands to pray and makes it look good, because he sees a man looking at him. This is far more serious than the flipping of the job. Another form of ship in the heart or should coffee in the back of the club is seeking worldly benefit through worship, seeking worldly benefits through worship. in Hades we learned that indeed, deeds are determined by their actions are determined by their
intentions, and every person will have what he intended. If a person performs a hedgerow for Allah and His Messenger, then is utilized for learners messenger. And if a person does hijra for some worldly benefit, then his utilize for that. And if a person does hijra in order to marry a woman and evangelize for them, so a person must see what is his intention behind doing something, when a person seeks worldly benefit, through or the other than that is a form of shift.
In associate of the Sahaba, we learned a hadith that nonpotable dunia Albert was the one who strives for dunya, the one who seeks dunya, then his Afro will suffer,
his alpha will suffer.
Now, that doesn't mean that a person cannot aim for any worldly benefit. Like for example, a person is working somewhere he wants to work, you need to work and he says I might as well work for a good cause. So that my actions my efforts are worth something. And at the end, I also make some money right now, is this incorrect? It depends. Depends on what a person's main intention, main intention that what is the main Nia what is the main purpose for which you are doing this work? Is it just to make the money? Or is it really to produce something good to strive for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah,
which is why the reader might have said that if a person sets a condition that I will only if for example, teach if you give me this much money, if you don't give me this much money, even if it's this much less, I'm not going to offer my services and that is not correct.
That is not correct. This is why many scholars we see, what did they do they used to spend on their students they used to spend on them instead of demanding from them. Now, it doesn't mean that students should not be made to pay for their fees or anything. No, but it doesn't mean that knowledge is sold, or ATM is sold. Like, for example, if our doors were not open to listeners,
and we said that no, no, you are not allowed to benefit at all. If you pay only then you come in, and if you don't pay, then you don't come in at all. So that's like selling the knowledge. So anyway, a person must examine his main media main intention that why am I doing this? Another form of shake in the heart is what reliance upon the means instead of the Creator. reliance upon the means instead of the provider of those means, in the measures of dounia. And so for example, a person relies upon medication relies upon the example that I gave earlier alarm system, as they should be relying upon, unless they rely upon money, as they should be relying upon, they rely upon
people as they should be relying upon Allah.
Now, this doesn't mean that we don't adopt these means, these means have been provided to us by whom it was dependent on air on
air and tire camel, and then the worker, then rely, right, so tying your camel comes first. Using the means comes first. However, what happens is that many times we rely upon those means only, which is why it happens that if we're sick, the first thought that comes to our mind is what? medication, doctor appointment, hospital emergency. Okay. And then when we've tried everything and nothing is working, and we say what was it your site with a patio seven times an envelope?
Yeah, or is it five times? Let me try that also.
You see the Eman in Milan or the Shiva that Allah has told us about his week compared to the man in the doctor or the medication. You see what I mean? So this is a problem. Likewise, a person relying upon a leader or
whoever it may be a person, that if if they're here, then everything will be fine. And if they're not here, then everything will be a mess, okay. So, this is also a kind of shift. And I remember that minor shift can become major shift,
minor shift, all of these different forms of minor shift that we've studied, they can become major ships, when
when the belief in them is stronger.
So for example, a person is wearing an amulet
or talisman and he has
absolute overkill upon it.
absolute trust on it absolute reliance and he believes in it with firmness or for example, a person goes to a fortune teller and whatever the fortune teller has said he believes in it with conviction with certainty. Now remember the stronger that email in the fortune teller or in that demeanor, then the greater the shake will be the greater that should be alright. So remember that minor shake can become major. This is why we see that certain forms of Ria are also major
certain forms of Ria are major ship. This is why we learn in the Quran about certain people who will have a no reward for their deeds in the hereafter at all. Why? Because they perform those deeds to be seen by others, like for example, when
the form of Ria will not benefit them at all. Instead, it will lead them to Hellfire to the lowest level of hellfire.
So it can become major ship.
Now, if you think about it, minor ship is a matter of what the heart mostly
it is what matter of the heart.
And also, it is a matter of those statements those actions which are accidental, or a person performs them out of ignorance. Like for example, he says a certain statement without realizing that it's a statement of [???].
Likewise, a person wears something without realizing that it's a form of check. There are many Muslims
Many people who have the knowledge of the Quran and yet you find out that they're wearing something around their neck, they're wearing something around their wrist. And this is all out of what pure ignorance.
But we see that shift is very dangerous. Minor shift leads to major shift. Minor shift leads to mentorship and mentorship, waste all of a person's complete, minor ship, if a person performs an action with minor shape, then that particular deed is wasted, it will not bring any benefit. This is why it is so important that we stay away from shake whether it is minor, or major. The prophets of the Holocene said all people fear [???], for it is more hidden than the creeping of an end.
It is more hidden than the creeping of an end. Like for example,
can you see it?
This is why we're always asking ourselves, How do I know
if I'm showing off or not? How do I know if my intentions are sincere due for a loss of panel data or not? Because it is a very hidden matter. So we have to be extra careful about this. He said those who are languished. They asked me those companions they asked, and how do we avoid it when it is more hidden than the creeping of an act? When it is more hidden than the creeping of an act and how can we avoid it? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, say Allah We seek refuge in You from knowingly committing check with you. And we ask you forgiveness for what we do not know about Allahumma in Nana will be coming initdb cache and naramore when esta firaga Lima Allah and Allah
and it's so important that we keep making this regularly. If we feel that we're showing off, if we feel that there's a huge difference between how I am before others and how I am when I'm alone, then we need almost help.
So keep making this thought that Oh Allah, you protect me from committing shake, and whatever I am doing without knowledge out of ignorance, then you forgive me for that. Because shift is something very dangerous into the Toba. What do we learn? What are the Lumina law What are solely in an SEO 100 and the Maha burry Omen and mushy key word. Allah aligners messenger are burry from the mashiki. Allah will abandon the Muslim and his shift, Allah will abandon such people their deeds will be wasted in the hereafter.
May Allah protect us from being such people? And this is a reason why do things are important if we want to stay away from sugar, first of all knowledge, awareness.
And secondly, seeking help.
Because when we will know then we will be able to avoid and when we will seek a less help, then they are basically acknowledging the fact that they are wrong. Okay? They're being honest about it. You see if you will read about it, okay? Like, for example, you go to fortune teller, you ask them, and they tell you, and then you say, I don't believe in you. Really? How is it possible that you're not going to think about what the fortune teller told you? If you ever read horoscopes? Then what happens? If something good happened to that? Oh, yeah, that's exactly what it said. Right? You start thinking along the same lines. And you see in this is a lot of wisdom, because it may happen with
the person that accidentally, accidentally, they fall in this by, for example, there could be a person who has no idea but what fortune cookies are,
for instance, and they open one, they eat one, and they're reading, and they're like, what is this and they find out about it, and I held on to it, and I don't believe in this. Or, for example, someone is reading the newspaper or reading a magazine or, or something like that. And there's a page of horoscopes and they don't realize they start reading it. And afterwards, they're like, what is this? They're trying to tell me about the future. It was accidental. Okay, so if it happened accidentally, then this is not check. If it's deliberate, a person is going finding out then unconsciously you will believe in it. That is a problem. Okay, third question if it's okay.
That's okay. That's In fact, good. That you are asking Allah subhanaw taala you're performing worship and asking him to give you this is that a person is performing something like performing an act of worship, but he's doing it not to get reward from Allah. That's not his main focus. The main focus is that I will be
Get some worldly benefit out of this. So for example, a person is going for Hajj.
Okay or for Allah, the main focus is not to do it by the way the
the main focus is not to come closer to a loss of Paradise, the main focus is just to have a break from your daily routine or something like that that is another and that is permissible. I mean, you see a man as a matter of the heart, okay, if you're reading horoscope and unconsciously you start believing in it, then imagine your prayers for 40 days are gone. So if you reflect on the punishment, on the consequences, then it will help you stay away from this. And the thing is that there are so many other beneficial things that a person should keep himself busy with, in the Quran, the characteristics of the believers that are given one of them as one home running away, more
people who should continue doing that good. Do you keep doing the good and you keep seeking refuge with ALLAH and you keep telling yourself No, Linda, this is for all.
