Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:22--> 00:00:43

our other bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hill Karim for Bish rocky Saudi way acidity MD. Wash Lulu rock Delta melissani of Oahu Ali Allahumma de the economy was set deadly Sani was sleuths of human the Colby Amin Europa Alameen.

00:00:45--> 00:00:49

Today in sha Allah, we will be going over some Dora's related to

00:00:50--> 00:01:09

the good, the good things of this world and the good things of the hereafter. Meaning what are some doors we can make in which we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us with good things in this life, and also with good things in the next life in the hereafter for eternity.

00:01:10--> 00:02:06

And among these doors, remember is the DAR which Allah subhanaw taala teaches us in the Quran, and that Dora is Robina Tina fifth dunya Hasina? Well, Phil, here it has Santa Joaquina either, but now that our Lord, give us good in this world, and also give us good in the hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the fire, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada for good things in this world and in the hereafter. Because remember that Dora is a means of receiving what you desire. What You Wish For Dora is something that reflects what your goals are, what your wishes are, dua reflects your beliefs, your your wishes, what kind of a person you really are. And Dora is an excellent form of

00:02:06--> 00:03:02

worship, an excellent form of drawing closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala for good things in this life and also for good things in the next life because Allah subhanaw taala is able to give us both. So those who aim high, don't just ask Allah subhanaw taala for good things right now. Or just in this life, they ask Allah subhanaw taala for a lot, because they know that the treasures of Allah subhanaw taala are great. None knows the forces of Allah except he and Allah subhanaw taala has the keys to the treasures, journey. He is the one who owns everything. So and Allah subhanaw taala is the Possessor of great favor, will Allah who will formulate our lien. So

00:03:02--> 00:03:15

when we ask Allah, we should have high hopes meaning we should aim high. We shouldn't just settle with asking for a few things, or, you know, just

00:03:16--> 00:04:08

little things, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for big things, for many things for many favors, because Allah is able to give us all of them and even more than we can imagine, more than we can even think of. So in this, there are there are numerous lessons for us. And we see that in sort of Baqarah verse number 200 to 202 Allah subhanaw taala mentions for either Kaleido Manasa con furred. kulula categorical ACOEM Oh, I shut the wcra and when you have completed your rights, meaning your rituals of Hajj, then remember Allah like your previous remembrance of your father's or with much greater remembrance Fermina NASCI Mania kulula burner, Tina fifth dunya warm Allah who fill our hero

00:04:08--> 00:04:51

team in color. And among the people is he who says our Lord, give us in this world and he will have in the hereafter no share. Woman who may your call or a burner, Tina for dunya hacer una Warfield. Filati, Hassan Joaquina are there but now but among them is he who says our Lord give us in this world that which is good, and in the hereafter that which is good. And protect us from the punishment of the fire. Hola ecollar Hoon, nicelabel membaca Sabu those will have a share of what they have earned. Will Allah who said he or she sab and Allah is Swift in account.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

We see that upon the completion of the rituals of Hajj before the prophets Allah

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

already, he will send them up the Mushrikeen, they would hold a fair at Mina.

00:05:05--> 00:05:26

In the time of Jamelia, they would hold a fair at Mina. And as they would spend their time eating and drinking, they would also boast about their greatness by talking about their ancestors. So they're told over here that Leave, leave such talk,

00:05:27--> 00:06:15

do not waste your time talking about the greatness of your ancestors, and the time that you used to spend in for in frivolous things. Now, you should spend that in the remembrance of Allah in mentioning him. Because the remembrance of Allah is something that brings contentment to everyone's heart. But the remembrance of forefathers can bring a lot of discomfort and a sense of low self worth, to some people. So for example, if you sit with your friends, and you talk about how great of a house your grandfather had, how much land he owned, and how he was the authority in his village, and how so much, you know, food would come into the house and so much charity would go from the

00:06:15--> 00:07:10

house and things like that. If you talk about the greatness, the wealth of your ancestors, okay? You feel good about that. But those listening to you don't necessarily enjoy that, because they will instantly compare you to to themselves, and they will feel inferior, because they did not have a grandfather or an ancestor who was as wealthy or as generous, or even someone who believed. So Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us over here that we should talk about those things that everyone finds happiness in, not those matters that cause discomfort and hurt to others. And the vicar of Allah is something that brings perma Nina to everyone's heart allowability Karela he totally a new group. So,

00:07:10--> 00:08:00

here people are taught that remember Allah much, and after that Allah subhanaw taala directs our attention towards Doha. Because first it is said that Fred kulula can equally come about a como Ashanti Decra and then there is mentioned. So, this shows is that when a person makes the raw after a lot of liquor, then it can be hoped that their door out will be granted. However, the people who are only concerned with the world are recommended over here those who only pray for dunya and those who seek the success of the hereafter and of course, good things in the world. They are praised over here. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says for either Kaleido monastic icon, font kulula Can they click on

00:08:00--> 00:08:32

an icon a shudder Decra meaning when you have completed all of your rituals, rituals of Hajj and remember that Hajj has many different rituals, many different you know places you have to go to you have to go to Mina then out offer then was delivered and back to Mina. And then at midnight you have to do the you have to do the stoning the Romeo Jamal, you have to offer sacrifice, and then the trimming ward or the shaving of the head. So

00:08:33--> 00:08:58

after completing all of the rituals of Hajj, then finds Quran Allah then remember Allah so make vicar after completing Hajj basically. Because it's very common in people that after they complete an act of worship, they tend to forget Allah subhanaw taala or rather they tend to forget to remember Allah

00:08:59--> 00:09:41

why because on completing a certain acts of worship, we feel we feel like okay, we've done something we've completed it now i I'm on a break. Right now I'm free. And being free means now just, you know, comfort yourself, enjoy yourself, go eat, go chill, go arrest, things like that. But Allah subhanaw taala tells us over here, that after completing the rituals of Hajj, then make the Dhikr of Allah and this is not just limited to Hajj this is actually applicable to all acts of worship. We are taught that after the month of fasting we should glorify Allah, we should say that could be wrought on the day of read the day of read is a day of the could right after praying Salah also we

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

should make the Quran we have discussed that in great detail earlier. So after completing any act of worship, remember the deacon of Allah. This is very important. Why? Because remembering Allah after completing an act of worship is basically taking the effect of that worship along with you

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Look into whatever work you are doing now. Because you you want to benefit from what you just did. And here remembering Allah means specifically in the days of Mina by saying that that could be right. And also it includes making drawers, any calling upon Allah subhanaw taala. And specifically it has been said that remember Allah can Vickery can ever remember Allah as you use to remember your forefathers, because like I mentioned earlier in the time of ignorance, they will talk about the accomplishments of their forefathers, or about their lineage, and things like that. So remember Allah the same way, or rather a shudder the Kra. Remember Allah with even more attentiveness, and

00:10:48--> 00:11:41

more sincerity, and more frequency, and in greater abundance. So remember Allah a lot and with complete attentiveness of the heart, then our attention is directed toward making dua. So it is said feminine Nassima your call Robina Tina for dunya woman, Allahu Fil A Hero team in Haluk. Among the people are those who say our Lord give us in the world, and they shall have no share in the hereafter. Why? Because they're only praying for good things in this world. And they're saying Robina attina for dunya our Lord, give us in the world give us what in the world, meaning our share, or anything of benefit, anything we desire. You know, good things essentially give us those good

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

things here.

00:11:43--> 00:12:37

Even our Vasco de la Mora, and who said that there were Bedouins, among the Arabs who would come to Ottawa or at different places of Hajj. And one of them would stand up and make dua, saying that, Oh God, make this year a year of rain, and plenty of abundance, and, and healthy children, et cetera. Henney, that's all that they would pray for. And they would not pray for anything related to the hereafter, any, they would not pray for Allah's forgiveness in the Hereafter, they would not pray for Paradise, they would not pray for any reward in the Hereafter, for the acceptance of their deeds, no, they would only be concerned about the things of the world. And the reason for this is

00:12:37--> 00:13:02

that they simply did not believe in the hereafter. And when they did not believe in the hereafter, then their hedge was for the sake of the world, their prayers were for the sake of the world, their efforts, everything, whatever they spent in order to get there, whatever they did in order to get to Hajj, all of that was dedicated to just getting more duniya.

00:13:03--> 00:13:33

And this is very common to sorry, this is very similar to how people are today, that people will exert a lot of effort, a lot of effort, you know, seeking good things of the world, they will, you know, exert not only physical effort, but they will invest financially, they will even try to do different things, you know, spiritually, whether it is meditation, or it is,

00:13:34--> 00:13:46

you know, holding or you know, saying certain affirmations on a regular basis, different things people do, in order to get more of the world.

00:13:47--> 00:14:18

Imam below he said that this idea is referring to the Mushrikeen, the polytheists, who when they would come for Hajj, they would only pray for the things of this world. So for example, they would say, oh, Allah give us goats and camels and cows and slaves, things like that, a man would get up. And he would say, My Lord, my father used to have a huge tent, and he had a lot of wealth. So you give me the same as you gave him

00:14:19--> 00:14:41

or that asset, that this is the person whose sole concern is the world. It is the dunya. So he spends his money for the sake of the dunya and he works for the sake of dunya and he gets tired and exhausted and bears hardship and difficulty. Why only for the sake of dunya

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

and SubhanAllah. This is something that is so common today, that even among Muslims, for instance, that their entire concern is what the things of the world, whether it is a career that they want to establish a name. They want to make a title they want to achieve a house they want to build

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

A certain amount of money they want to have, or you know, shares, they want to own

00:15:06--> 00:15:41

any, the concern, the ultimate concern is just the dunya. And so, the effort, you know, their education, their work, their mental energy, their prayers, even if they have some spirituality even that is dedicated to what, just getting more dunya Allah subhanaw taala says wema Allahu fille Farah, demon Haluk. Such a person will have no share in the hereafter. Why? Because he never wanted it. He never prayed for it. He never asked for it. He only wanted the world. And that is all he prayed for. That is all he asked for.

00:15:42--> 00:16:30

Well, main home mania corner of burner, Tina for dunya has Santa's waffle accurate, he has Center working on other banana. And among them are those who say our Lord, give us in the world, good things, and in the hereafter good things, working out either banal and save us from the punishment of the fire. Meaning all all people are not like that. There are those who believe in the hereafter. Those who aim for the hereafter, those who seek the hereafter as well. And he they seek the world. And they also seek the Hereafter they want both. And this is the person who aims very high. And he who's asking Allah subhanaw taala for a lot, because he knows that Allah is capable of giving a lot.

00:16:31--> 00:17:08

So he's not just praying for dunya he's also praying for eternity for the era. Anyone you when a person makes the largest for dunya. They're asking for something that will benefit them for how long? Maybe five years, 20 years, 30 years, who knows? Less than 100 years, right? But when a person is praying for the hereafter, something good in the hereafter. This means that they want that benefit for eternity, forever and ever and ever. So why do we aim so low? Why should we ask for very little when Allah is capable of giving us so much more.

00:17:09--> 00:17:57

So women who may appear Robina attina, for dunya has entered they ask Allah firstly, for good things in the world. Why? Because they're living in the world, they're in there in this world, and in order to live this life in a good way, and in order to prepare for the hereafter, a person must have access to good things and what are these good things, what is hasna in the world, it includes ample and lawful sustenance. So for example, a person prays for ample lawful sustenance, money wealth, because this is good for the believer, he will use his good wealth to earn the pleasure of Allah. So for example, if a person has ample wealth, that he has earned lawfully, this means that he can go

00:17:57--> 00:18:11

for or you can go for Hajj regularly, he can travel for the sake of Allah, He can support those who are in need of help. He can, you know, they can build a masjid, they can sponsor students of knowledge they can spend in the way of Allah.

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

And there's so much that they can do with their lawfully earned wealth. So, first of all, has an in the world includes ample lawful sustenance. Secondly, it also includes a righteous spouse, a righteous spouse, any being married is a very normal,

00:18:36--> 00:19:24

you know wish that any person can have. And if a person prays for a righteous spouse, who will assist them, not only in their worldly matters, but also in preparing in preparing for the home of the Hereafter, this is excellent. Then hasna in the world includes righteous children, good children, healthy children, obedient children, children who are very good manners. And then it includes comfort and rest and ease and convenience in life, as well as beneficial knowledge and righteous actions, and all permissible things all permissible things are included in her Santa in the world. But they don't just ask for hasna in the world, they also ask Allah will feel accurate he

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

has an idea Allah give us hasna in the hereafter as well. And hasna in the hereafter. Of course it is Jana. All right, it is paradise. Because Allah subhanaw taala says Linda Medina Arsenault Allahu snel was here the those people who have done good in the world, they shall have a house now the most excellent reward in the hereafter which is Jana, and not just that was Jada and even more than that, so Hessonite Yes, it includes paradise, but not just Jana. It includes more than that.

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

So for example, a person asks for hassle in the hereafter This includes that, yeah, Allah, grant me safety and protection on the Day of Judgment. That yeah, Allah, grant me beauty in paradise, grant me,

00:20:18--> 00:21:21

you no such easy hisab make my deeds heavy in the scale and give me my real my record of deeds in my right hand and protect me from punishment in the grave on on the day of judgment in the Great Gathering, grant me your approval, grant me your closeness. Give me the privilege to see you. bestow on me your Ridhwan your approval. So the list of hasna in the hereafter that is endless, because the hereafter is endless. So if it accurately has an Joaquina or darba Na, and one more thing they pray for, and save us from the punishment of the buyer. Meaning Yeah, Allah protect us from those deeds that lead a person to hellfire. And forgive me my sins, so that I am not punished with the fire. So

00:21:21--> 00:22:05

guard me against those deeds which could lead me to hellfire and if there are any sins I have already committed. Yeah, Allah forgive me for those also walking out or not save us from the punishment of the fire. Now this Dora, remember, this is the most comprehensive and complete Dora the most comprehensive, the most complete Dora, which means that if you don't know any other there are and if you know this, Dora, then you you know what to ask Allah subhanaw taala for you are asking for good things for yourself. Because you're asking for goodness in the world, goodness in the Hereafter, and protection against the hellfire. These are the three main things that each person

00:22:05--> 00:22:53

needs that each person wishes for. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam used to make this dua very, very frequently. And you know, sometimes there are situations in your life where you are not able to make a lot of dua you would like to you want to you make the intention that now I'm going to sit and make dua, but what happens especially if you have little children, then you know, you are needed or you have many obligations or you are you are at work you have your exams or something because of what you're not able to make a lot of time or even when you do you know you are mentally so occupied, you are being called from different directions. And he you are not able to

00:22:54--> 00:23:46

you know, make that time for yourself. So, in such times, do not leave making dua don't, you know, don't don't do that, that you completely stop making their art for yourself. No, you must make your art for yourself, no matter how busy you are, but learn the most any the most effective way of asking Allah subhanaw taala the best doors that you can make for yourself. And this is one of those doors which is very comprehensive and very complete. And this is why this Dora is given preference over other doors as well. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam would very frequently make this thorough and also teach this there are two others. We learned in a hadith that Qatada asked us

00:23:46--> 00:24:11

Rhodiola horn who, that which Dora did the Prophet sallallahu Areo Sena make the most any what was his most frequently? And he said, there are the DUA that he would make most frequently is Allahumma attina for dunya, Hassan Warfield, harati Hassan working or Domina that oh Allah give us in this world good and in the hereafter good and save us from the punishment of the fire.

00:24:12--> 00:24:27

And whenever an a sort of de la Mourinho, he would want to make dua, he would always begin with this drop any first he would make this thorough and then he would make some other dorm. We learn in another narration that

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

an Rhodiola one who he was told that some people have come to see you from Basra and they want that you should make dua for them. So he said Allahumma fiddler, now we're Hamner Oh Allah forgive us and have mercy on us. What attina for dunya has center and give us in the world good. And in the world Phil accurately has center and in the hereafter good walk in there either by now and save us from the punishment of the fire. So those people said that make Mordor you

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

You know, we came all the way here and we want you to make dua for us. So make more ask for something else. So he said the same Dora again, that Robin attina for dunya has an awful accurate he has an open Arda banana. And then he said that if you were given this, you have been given the good of this world and the next and you want more do you want. If you're asking Allah for this, this means that you, you are asking Allah for good in the world good in the hereafter. This is basically what you want, right? And if this door is accepted, then you're good.

00:25:37--> 00:26:23

We also learned that Anasazi Liang on who reported that the Prophet sallallahu Areo sent them once visited a man who was so weak that he had become like a baby bird, and he out of his sickness, his body had become so frail, and it had basically shriveled Subhanallah and that man was in a very terrible state. So the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam asked him, that, did you not use to make dua? Did you not use to ask your Lord for Sound Health? Any? Is there something that you used to pray for? So the man said, I used to say that Oh Allah, whatever you are going to punish me with in the hereafter than hasten it for me in this world. And if you're if you're going to punish me the

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

hereafter give me that punishment now in this life.

00:26:27--> 00:26:30

So the prophets of Allah who are the salam said,

00:26:31--> 00:27:14

he was surprised at this answer, he said, Subhan Allah, La to leave Gugu Glory be to Allah, you are not capable of that. You are not able to bear punishment, you know of Allah in this world, or even the hereafter any This is not something that you should be praying for. Why did you not say Allahumma attina for dunya has an awful accurate he has Santa working on either banana, that oh Allah give us good in this world good in the hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the fire? Why did you not make this throw meaning this is the door that you should be making. So this shows us that this is adorable, we should make when we want something, whether it is health, or wealth or

00:27:14--> 00:27:29

family, children's success, education, anything that we want of this world, or anything we want of the Hereafter, Paradise, forgiveness, ease on the Day of Judgment.

00:27:30--> 00:28:16

Anything we desire in paradise and in the hereafter we can make the storm and we can also make this thorough, when we are feeling extremely bad and guilty about our sins, ashamed of the wrong things that we have done. Any sometimes. You know, there's a we have a lot of hope in Allah's mercy. And then there are other times when we have a lot of fear, when we're very, very afraid that I don't know what's going to become of me. I don't know if I'm going to be forgiven because of such and such sin of mine or such and such shortcomings of mine. I don't know what's going to happen. So don't fall into despair at that time. Rather make this Dora Aloma attina for dunya Hasina Warfield,

00:28:17--> 00:29:03

erotica Sana Joaquina either wanna such a comprehensive drop, we learned that this thorough, is also supposed to mean to be made during the laugh, especially when a person is walking between the two corners, and you look on your money and hydrilla sweat. At that time, especially we should make this door. And in the days of Haji Ibn Rajab said that the son of wood the earlier generations, they would especially make this dua in the days of the shriek, meaning in the days of Mina at Hajj. And our plot said that any person who goes for Hajj and is returning to his family to his home, then he should make this thorough, any when you're done hudge then at that time, you should especially be

00:29:03--> 00:29:52

making this thorough and remember never we says that there is no specified time or place for this hedge for this thorough, because this thorough is something that a person can make at any time, any moment, any place. A person can make this thorough in their salah, outside of Salah at the beginning of their door or in the middle of their door or at the end. You can make this dua when visiting someone who is ill like the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm taught that men you can make this dua when performing the rituals of Hajj, any you can make this dua at any time. So make sure that you know the store well and you teach this door to your children and encourage them to make this

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

door also encourage your family to make this door Allahumma attina for dunya has Santa Warfield karate has no working

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

every governor that is in the sooner that the door begins with the word Allahumma that oh Allah in the Quran, the wording is Robina attina that our Lord you give us. So Allah subhanaw taala says regarding these people who pray for both dunya akhira and protection against the punishment of the fire, that hola eCola Hoon nicelabel mimica Cebu that they will have a share of what they have earned will love city or sab and Allah is Swift in the account in each group will have their reward according to what they have done according to what they have earned. Allah subhanaw taala will recompense people based on their intentions and their efforts. And like over here refers to both the

00:30:47--> 00:31:17

groups and those who pray only for dunya and also those who pray for dunya and akhira. So those who pray only for dunya they will only have dunya, how much dunya whatever dunya Allah subhanaw taala had already written for them, and those who pray for dunya and akhira, then they will get both because that is what they're praying for. That is what they're asking for. And Allah say that this verse shows that Allah subhanaw taala hears everyone's derives whether they're Muslim or not, whether they

00:31:18--> 00:31:35

you know, worship Allah, the right way or not, whether they commit sins or not, any every person, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who hears draws. He is the one who, who gives to people what they asked for.

00:31:36--> 00:32:24

And Lulu, Kolomna Sable, maca, Cebu, Allah Azza, your hisab Allah is Swift in the account, any on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will will, you know take the accounts of people very quickly. And do not think that the hereafter is far. It is very near well now you did ecological Assata Karim. Well May you recall are la sera de Kunal Kariba, you don't you don't know? Perhaps the hour is very near. So Allah swift in account, the hereafter is not far. So don't doubt it's, it's coming just because it's it's not here right now. Because you see, sometimes we focus our eyes only on the things of the world, because they are immediate, we see them, right. So we feel like they're

00:32:24--> 00:33:10

more urgent, they're more real to us. And the hereafter seems very far. And what is far seems to be unlikely. And so we forget what is going to come later. And we just focus on the present. Don't make that mistake, focus on the present, and also on the future. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you good in this world, and good in the hereafter, and to protect you from the punishment of the Hellfire. I mean, now in this thorough there are numerous, you know, lessons that we can learn. First of all, we learned that we should pray for both the dunya and the akhira. Any whenever you make dua

00:33:11--> 00:33:37

for anything, whether it is health, or it is your you know, for your children, for your safety, for your success in your exams, whatever the hell you're making, even for your parents, any draw you're making, also pray for the akhirah you're thorough, should not just be focused on the good things of the world, you must also pray for

00:33:39--> 00:34:26

and if you don't know what to ask for, then at least make this thorough, because this thorough covers all of the good things of the hereafter. Those you know and those you don't know, those you can think of and those you cannot think of all the good things of the hereafter. So include this thorough in your Doris Robina attina Dunya has an awful accuracy Hassan Joaquina Domina. Secondly, we learn that while we make dua, yes, we should pray for dunya and we should pray for a hill. But what we pray for us it should be more than what we pray for dunya because in this doll, which Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us, we see that for dunya we're just asking for one thing, or have been

00:34:26--> 00:34:41

attina for dunya Hasina, that, Oh our Lord, it was good in this world. But when it comes to the hereafter, we're asking for two things. Right and that is in the hereafter has an wiping out or that will not save us from the punishment of the fire.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

So if you divide your drawer into three sections, okay. One section should be for the dunya and two for the hereafter. Right? Or any good thing that you ask Allah subhanaw taala for in this world, ask double

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

Have that in the hereafter for the hereafter.

00:35:03--> 00:35:14

Thirdly, we learn in this era that when we call upon Allah subhanaw taala then we should call upon him by his names by his attributes.

00:35:16--> 00:36:08

Because you see the Dow begins with the rub banana in the Quran and the Sunnah begins with Allahumma any say or be a banana? Yeah Rob Yeah Allah, any call upon Allah subhanaw taala by His names, any address him, talk to him take his name, of course very respectfully with love with fear with adoration with reverence and respect with with all of those good feelings, but take his name. Some people when they're making Dora, they don't say things like Allahumma or or have been a, so call upon Allah subhanaw taala by His names and his attributes, and you see especially in this Dora, an action of Allah has also mentioned Joaquina and you save us because it is Allah who saves. It is

00:36:08--> 00:36:25

Allah who protects. Fourthly, we learn from this dua that when we make dua, we should aim high, we should aim very, very, very high. So, for example, if you're asking ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada for

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

for wealth, okay?

00:36:29--> 00:37:19

Then don't just pray for $1,000 Okay, don't just pray for $50,000 Pray for millions, because Allah is able to give you that when you want to get a car for example, okay, and you're making dua don't just pray for any car that he or Allah want just any car, as long as it moves, even if it's rickety and old and rusted. And it has a million problems, it's okay. I just desperately want a car please give me a car. Don't pray like that. Week Dora for a car that is good for a car that will not give you trouble for a car that is very comfortable, that is very spacious, that you can use for a very, very, very long time. And he made make such drawers aim high. Because when when is it that you ask

00:37:19--> 00:37:28

for little favors? You ask for little favors, from who from people, which people, the people who have very little to give.

00:37:29--> 00:38:16

But when you know that someone is very generous, and they have a lot to give, then you don't ask for little favors. You ask for huge favors. You don't hesitate asking. So with Allah subhanaw taala don't hesitate asking. So we're taught over here to pray for the dunya and the author, and protection against the fire, Allahu Akbar, and he aim high. Then we learn number five from this thorough that there is nothing wrong in asking Allah subhanaw taala for good things in the world. As long as a person is all is also praying for good things in the hereafter. Any if, for example, you find out that someone's making dua in the month of Ramadan for a new car, okay, on their door or

00:38:16--> 00:39:01

list, or the door that they regularly make is a new car. Alright, you might say oh, look at them. They're praying for dunya dunya, which is so lowly. Oh, there's nothing wrong in praying for dunya as long as a person is also praying for the Afra because this is what we're being taught over here. Ask Allah for good things here in the world, and ask Allah for good things in the hereafter. Both ask Allah for both. It's not you know only the hereafter and nothing of the world. You ask Allah subhanaw taala for both. Number six, we learned from this Torah that every person no matter who they are, is in need of good things in this world and good things in the hereafter.

00:39:02--> 00:39:41

Any, you could be very wealthy, you could be healthy. Maybe you have memorize the Quran. And maybe you have done Hajj and many Ramallah in your life, and maybe you give a lot of sadaqa as well. Maybe you teach people a lot of good things, you still need more good things in the world and good things in the hereafter. Because it hasn't been said that this Dora is especially for those who are in difficulty, or those who are suffering are those who are poor, or those who are struggling. No, this door is for who for everyone. Because it's the Dora which Allah subhanaw taala approves of this dua Allah subhanaw taala approves

00:39:42--> 00:39:46

so this means that anyone and everyone can make this thorough

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

any never feel that oh since Allah has blessed you with good health and good wealth and you should not be asking Allah for for good things in the world. No, you should still be asking Allah for good things in the world. Robina

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

had enough of dunya Hasina or Phil accurately Hassan because for the believer, every good thing in the world becomes a means of earning more good in the hereafter.

00:40:11--> 00:40:21

The number seven, we learn in this era that we should pray to Allah subhanaw taala with hope and fear with hope and fear. Because

00:40:22--> 00:41:06

on the one hand we have hope when we say, Yeah, Allah give us good in the world give us good in the hereafter. Right? You're asking for something good when you have hope. And then you also have fear when you say what pina colada nah, yeah, Allah save us from the punishment of the fire. So combine both fear and hope. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you the things that you desire, and also ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from things that you are afraid of. And then number eight, we learn from this Torah that the doors which Allah subhanaw taala mentions in his book in the Quran, they are truly excellent draws very comprehensive, meaningful doras so we should,

00:41:07--> 00:41:36

you know, in the doors we make we should include the doors that Allah subhanaw taala has taught in the Quran. So for example, this torah, or a visit near Alma Robina herbelin Omen as well Gina with Bucha Yatseniuk Kurata Yun vagina Lynmouth, Akina Imam, there are so many doors that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us in the Quran, and these are other very comprehensive, very complete in their meaning. So, we should use we should learn these doors and we should make them

00:41:37--> 00:42:33

now, we see that in these verses that are presented before you we see that people who only seek the dunya have been condemned, right. And this is something that we should bear in mind, that we should not just be seekers of this dunya. Because, well, Lira to Cairo, Abaco, the Hereafter is better and it is more or less thing, no matter how much of this dunya we can have, remember, it is limited, it is temporary. And every good thing in this world is you know such that it also brings with it some kind of challenges, right? So for example, if you are asking Allah subhanaw taala to give you a big house, then of course, you also have to pay taxes, right, you also have to pay for the bills, and

00:42:33--> 00:43:09

maybe you have to pay for the maintenance and maybe you have to work yourself very hard to maintain that house to clean that house. Right. So you need we should not just be seeking the dunya because the Hereafter is better, and it is more or less. So for example, you want a good house in the world. Ask Allah subhanaw taala for it, ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it good for you. But along with that, also pray to Allah a little bit earlier in the debate and Viljoen that oh my lord, built for me a house near you in Jana, I want to house in paradise.

00:43:10--> 00:43:30

And any thing that you wish for in the world, because you feel like it's going to be very beneficial for you. Then remind yourself that call Matera dunya Khalil the benefit of the world is little will ask you to hire only money taco and the hereafter is way better for the one who has the quote of Allah

00:43:31--> 00:43:56

and the world. In Hadith we learn that you know that your return is to Allah. And then either there is Jana, or there is fire and the hereafter, any the home of the Hereafter whether paradise or Hellfire is such an abode from which there is no departure.

00:43:57--> 00:44:23

And then there is such eternity, that there is no death and in the hereafter are such bodies that will not die. So focus on the hereafter prepare for that, because the real life is the life of the hereafter. And whatever Allah subhanaw taala gives you in this world, any be grateful for it, but don't be

00:44:24--> 00:44:39

you know, satisfied with it in the sense that don't think that now you are successful, when you get something of the world, realize that there is much more in the hereafter that you still need to seek. So aim for that, strive towards that and pray for that.

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

And we also learn that the person who only seeks the world, then such a person will have no share in the hereafter. Man, can you read all our Julietta our Janella houfy Her Manisha olema Nuri, so majaz nella who Johanna Munoz let him at MUMA Madhura min Kana ureteral Hayato dunya was Oenothera

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

Norfleet Elaine armella Will fee her while on fee her liable hustle in there are several verses in the Quran that teaches this lesson, that if you seek the world, then you only get of this world what is written for you. So don't just seek this dunya also aim for wish for strive for the reward that Allah has in the hereafter. Even Judah Tabari said that the person who does good things, any person does good deeds, only to get benefit in the world. So for example, he fasts you know, for instance, some people fast why so that they can lose weight, or a person prays so for example, some people make sure that they're praying long pm standing, why is it that they convert burn more calories?

00:45:52--> 00:46:40

Okay. So a person does good things for worldly gain, then Allah subhanaw taala will give that person any okay the dunya that he's asking for, but then in the Hereafter, this person will have nothing. So just because we are doing a good deed, that alone is not enough. We need to ask ourselves that what do I want through this good deed? What do I want from Allah subhanaw taala to give me what just benefit now or benefit in the hereafter as well. So aim for the hereafter. Make your intention sincere for the era, that Allah subhanaw taala will give you a reward over there. In Hadith we learn about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about certain individuals who were very

00:46:40--> 00:47:15

generous. This is before Islam in the time of ignorance. And you were very generous who were very hospitable, good to the relatives, you know, people who were who would set slaves free and would give food to others. So will will such people be admitted into paradise? Will their deeds help them? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, because they never said Rob Bill fiddly hardly at Yama, Dean. These people never said, Oh my Lord, forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment. They never

00:47:17--> 00:47:25

you know, they only aimed for dunya they did all of these good things. Whether it was out of

00:47:26--> 00:48:13

you know, seeking fame, or for no benefit in return from people, whatever it was, they didn't do it for the sake of Allah. And when they did not do it for the sake of Allah, then that means that they will not have any reward from Allah in the hereafter. So we should be very careful. Any sometimes we exert so much effort in, you know, fasting in praying in reciting Quran in saving to go for Umrah or Hajj, what's the intention? Are we only seeking worldly benefits? So for example, some people you know, they're advised go for Omura if they're having trouble finding a spouse, people advise them go for Umbra and inshallah you will find a good spouse or they say, you know, you're having trouble in

00:48:13--> 00:49:05

your in your business go for Umrah, you're having trouble having a child go for Umrah, and it's okay, any you you do something good and make Dora because this is a way of having your dollars accepted. But your ultimate concern and goal for Omaha should not be so you can get married. That's not the outcome, the only outcome you're seeking. No, you're seeking Allah's mercy, His vast, vast, generous mercy in the hereafter and in this world, and a tiny portion of that vast mercy is that you are granted a child that you so badly want or you're granted a spouse that you so badly want or you you're granted a health or wealth or whatever it is that you wish. So don't just seek dunya ask

00:49:05--> 00:49:11

Allah subhanaw taala for his for his generosity, which includes dunya and akhira.

00:49:12--> 00:49:37

And when a person only seeks the dunya then their heart becomes deviated. We learned that it makes a person a coward, any they no longer have inner strength or courage. And we learned in the Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that let the slave of dinar and Dirham

00:49:39--> 00:49:56

off. So he said there is the D now what are the deal, Hamid Abdul Hamid Sati any made such a person be ruined? Who the slave of the now the slave of Durham, the slave of camisa kabisa is a garment

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

and he's someone who's so greedy for

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

quotes, let him perish, that if he is pleased, he is happy. And if he's sorry, if he is given, he is happy. And if he is not given he becomes annoyed.

00:50:12--> 00:50:23

So this is how some people are even with Allah subhanaw taala that they made Dora, for what? For nice clothes. And if they don't get the nice clothes, they get angry, yellow, why didn't you give me nice clothes.

00:50:24--> 00:50:44

They're so eager and greedy for the things of the world that if they get them, they're happy if they don't get them, they're not happy. And the Prophet salallahu already said them. He said that let such a person perish. And if he is pierced with a thorn, let him not find anyone to take it out for him.

00:50:45--> 00:51:03

Subhan Allah, he this is how much the prophets of Allah who already said I'm disliked people who are so greedy for the world, in our best are the Longhorn, who said that Allah has divided the world into three portions, one portion is for the believer,

00:51:04--> 00:51:08

another portion is for the hypocrite. And another portion is for the disbeliever.

00:51:09--> 00:51:29

So the believer takes his portion of the world in order to prepare for the hereafter Subhan Allah, any whatever a believer enjoys and uses of this world, then what is the goal, the goal is to seek the home of the Hereafter.

00:51:30--> 00:52:27

The hypocrite uses the world in order to adorn and beautify himself over here. And he just uses it to show off, to boast to impress people to look good in the eyes of people, because that is what a hypocrite is seeker of people's approval. And the disbeliever takes his share, to enjoy himself any he only enjoys in the world. So who are you? What are you seeking? If you have anything of this world? What is the objective? Is it to thoroughly enjoy it? Is it to just adorn yourself with it? Or is it to use it in order to earn the home of the Hereafter? Malik Gibbon dinov said, that your concern for the hereafter will depart from your heart, in proportion to your concern for the world.

00:52:28--> 00:53:11

Meaning, the more concerned you are for this dunya then the less concerned you will be for the hereafter. And vice versa, your concern for the dunya will depart from your heart in proportion to your concern for the hereafter. And you will notice this, that you know when you are overly concerned about for example, the cleanliness of your home or your health, your physical appearance, your money and things like that, then you have less bandwidth, mental bandwidth to think about the hereafter and to focus and pay attention on deeds that will help you in the hereafter. So for example, if you wake up in the morning, with your

00:53:12--> 00:53:34

you know, thinking about how you have to clean the house, and all the things you have to get done, and how you have to go shopping and all the things you need to buy and the bills you have to pay. So what will happen from the morning until you fall in your bed at night. What what is it that you are chasing the dunya

00:53:35--> 00:54:11

and the time that you take out in order to pray Salah How is that time spent, any Salah will be rushed. You will not be able to remember Allah in Salah you will not be able to remember Allah after Salah maybe you're so busy cleaning, cooking, doing the chores going out of the house buying shopping that you forget to make record in the morning you forget to make liquor in the evening. You forget to give sadaqa you forget to recite Quran and you think about it, your concern for the hereafter will depart from your heart in proportion to your concern for the world.

00:54:12--> 00:54:52

And if you are concerned for the hereafter, then what will happen? Your concern for the dunya will reduce then yes you will. You know for example when you wake up in the morning and you're like today, I have to recite this much Quran today I have to you know help so and so for the sake of Allah, I have to go here and attend the gathering of knowledge. I have to you know, do such and such good deed and you have all those good things in your mind. Then what will happen you're focused on them. And yes, cooking will also get done grocery will also get done. But you will not be overly concerned with those matters.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

And the concern for the hereafter. It brings a person calm

00:55:00--> 00:55:47

Yeah, well, you know, in this life in the sense that they're not panicking, they're not worrying all the time. And when a person is concerned about the Dounia all the time, they're always stressed out, always worried. Because there is no end to the things of this world. There is no end to the work that you can do over here. There's always more to do. So ask Allah subhanaw taala, for the good things of this life and also the good things of the next life. Ask Allah subhanaw taala for his approval for Jana. Ask Allah subhanaw taala for you know, sincerity in your heart, ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you the ability to worship Him in an excellent way. And people who ask Allah

00:55:47--> 00:56:02

for dunya and akhira Allah subhanaw taala gives them both. Allah subhanaw taala does not deprive His righteous leaves off the good things of the world. And his his favor is is a lot.

00:56:03--> 00:56:27

Now when we ask Allah for good things in the world, what is it that we should be praying for? Or what is it that we can have in our mind? When we say Robina attina for dunya in your mind, you should have the or Allah give me religious and worldly blessings. So for example, yeah, Allah strengthen my Islam, strengthen my Eman. Give me the ability to spend more time with the Quran.

00:56:28--> 00:56:32

Bless my family and my wealth, so that I can

00:56:33--> 00:57:11

use them for your pleasure. So for example of my family, my children, I can teach them about you I can teach them your book, they will do righteous deeds, they will be good Muslims. So keep this in your mind when you say Robina attina for dunya Hasina, ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you the ability to do good things, good deeds, good o'clock, acts of generosity, of forgiveness, you know, assisting people assisting Allah's creation, ask Allah subhanaw taala you need to have in your mind that you live your life in a way that is pleasing to Allah,

00:57:12--> 00:58:01

that you use the blessings Allah has given you in the right way, in a good way that Allah grants you health and safety in your body, that Allah gives you a right to espouse a good neighbor, that Allah gives you, you know, a comfortable means of transportation and a comfortable home. That Allah gives you satisfaction, that Allah gives you patience and gratitude, and a heart and tongue that remember ALLAH, ALLAH got that. And that Allah gives you the ability to spend generously in his way. And, you know, like in the Quran, we learn, Quran was told well, the daily FEMA attack Allahu darnel, a hero, seek the home of the Hereafter through through what Allah has given you. So ask Allah then yeah,

00:58:01--> 00:58:54

Allah gave me the ability to use all of this, to earn the home of the Hereafter to use the good things of this world in a way that is permissible. When you ask Allah, what will Hirata Hasina? What should you have in your mind? have in your mind that he or Allah make my death easy for me? Make my death a time of receiving good news of paradise make my grave spacious for me Give me blessings and ease and protection and comfort in my grave that he or Allah grant me is in the hash of in the in the Great Gathering they are Allah forgive me in the Great Gathering yeah Allah give me the water of held cosa allow me to drink from there. Allow me to be in the shade of your throne on the Day of

00:58:54--> 00:59:05

Judgment make me such that give me my record of my deeds in my right hand. Give me the ability to cross the salt very quickly. very swiftly

00:59:06--> 00:59:33

Well Phil accurately has Santa make me enter paradise walking or other banal saved me from the punishment of Hell? Yeah, Allah grant us the privilege of seeing You that You bestow Your approval on on me. So Robina attina for dunya Hasina. Well Phil accurate Hassan are working on other banal mean.
