Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh who

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

are the biller him min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Karim rubbish Rocklea Saudi were silly Emery will rock that Emily Sani of Cabo poli Allahumma de Colby was sadly Sonny was salute him at the Colby mimio. But I mean,

00:00:40--> 00:01:36

in today's session of arriba morjim My Lord is Ever near my Lord is Ever responsive. In sha Allah, we'll be going over some daraz related to stability on guidance, firmness on hidayah on guidance. And the first and the most important there are that we already make every day of our lives is the dua it didn't slip off and was the team that our Lord guide us to the straight path. And this throughout we make in Surah Fatiha, which is a Surah, which is basically a draw a prayer. And this is a door that we make in every Salah in every locker. And this shows us how important the prayer for guidance is. Now we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, but what exactly is guidance? What

00:01:36--> 00:02:33

exactly is hedaya? He Daya is to direct someone to the right path, it is to ensure that they remain on the right path. And then you make sure that they also reached the destination. So for instance, when you put your destination on Google Maps, then what happens it not only shows you the way, but when you ask it to guide you on the way, then what happens if you ever take a wrong turn, or if you miss an exit, it will ensure that you get back on the right path. And then it will make sure that you reach your destination. And if you keep going off the path, it will keep guiding you back on it. So this is the concept of guidance, that you not only show someone what the right path is, but you

00:02:33--> 00:03:24

ensure that they remain on it. And then you make them reach the correct destination also. So when we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he did a certain Mr. Team that O Allah guide us to the straight path. We are asking Allah to direct us to the right path, not the wrong path but the right path. And then we're also asking Allah to enable us to remain on the right path to protect us from going off the right track from veering off. And then we're asking Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the ability to remain on it to grant us firmness, stability, steadfastness on it so that we reach the right destination, which is Allah subhanahu dadas approval. And it did not sit out there Mr. Kane, in this

00:03:24--> 00:04:18

ayah were taught to ask Allah subhanaw taala for the guidance of knowledge for guidance towards the truth, guidance of Delphi and the ability to follow the truth to adopt the truth to live the truth. And then the guidance of TestSuite is the karma, any stability and firmness for all our life. We're asking Allah that Oh ALLAH inspire us to do things that please you teach us to do things in the way that pleases you and lead us toward guidance and success. And remember that as human beings our success is in reaching Janna, reaching Paradise because Allah subhanaw taala says, Manzo has ihana now, we're all the female janitor for codifies that the person who is saved from hellfire. And then

00:04:18--> 00:05:00

they're admitted into paradise, then such a person has attained success. And this is ultimate success. ultimate success is not in this life. It is not in this world. Because no matter what level you reach in this life, no matter what you get, your your question is what next? in Jannah, there is no what next, because it is ultimate success. And Jana is attained through Islam, because Allah subhanaw taala tells us where Mejia butterly Lirael Islami dienen felon you obala min Wahoo Phil, Akira terminal ha city that whoever seeks a religion other than Islam than that

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

Religion will never be accepted from that person, and he will be in the hereafter of those who are losers. So when we say dinner, slaughter muster claim, we are asking Allah to give us the ability to leave every Deen every religion and hold on to Islam. Yeah, Allah gave me the ability to hold on to Islam, to strengthen us in our Islam. And even Saudi says that in this verse we are asking Allah subhanaw taala for truth, that Ya Allah, enable us to recognize the truth and lead us towards it and make us adhere to it. So we're asking Allah subhanaw taala, for the blessing of Islam, for the ability to adhere to it, and to guide us to all of the teachings of Islam, all of the different

00:05:52--> 00:06:43

aspects of Islam. So for example, part of Islam is that a person prays Salah regularly five times a day. So when we ask Allah He did a certain was the theme we're asking Allah, part of the story is that we're asking Allah give me the ability to pray, teach me how to pray properly in a way that is pleasing to you. Give me the ability to pray in an excellent way. So likewise, a cat, this is a part of Islam in a Serato Mr. Clean means you're asking Allah for the ability to calculate your cat correctly on time, and then give it in the best way in the right place. So every single aspect of Islam of Deen everything that is pleasing to Allah, every deed or word Big or small, any action,

00:06:43--> 00:07:35

internal, external, manifest private, anything that is related to Islam. All of that is included in the stirrup. So in a Serato, Mr. Kim is a very comprehensive, and a very beneficial Dora that every single person is in need of, and we see that our five daily prayers are based on it. Any if you think about it, in Salah, what are we doing? We begin with Santa with the praise of Allah. Right we recite Surah Fatiha, which is Dora. And then after that we recite some Quran, we go in ReCore we praise Allah we glorify Allah, we stand up again we glorify and praise Allah we go into such that again we glorify and praise Allah. And the rest of the Salah also is mainly what we are glorifying

00:07:35--> 00:08:25

and praising Allah, so well so you know, the beginning of Salah end of Salah middle of Salah is all praise and glorification of Allah. And we are basically asking for one thing, and that is that we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance. And if a person does not recite Surah Fatiha, their Salah is not valid. If a person Mrs. Sudha Fatiha in a record, that record is not valid, a person has to repeat the entire record. So Salah is based on this Dora, so five times a day, we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for hedaya for guidance, because we are always in need of it, a person can never have enough of a diet. You know, for example, if a person is praying to have children, Allah subhanaw

00:08:25--> 00:09:09

taala grants them 234 Or five children, then what happens, you know, this is not a draw that they make anymore because they're happy, they're satisfied with the children that Allah subhanaw taala has given them a person prays for wealth and Allah subhanaw taala gives them a lot of risk a lot of sustenance. So you know you you are very satisfied, you are happy with what Allah has given you. When it comes to guidance, a person can never say I am content and satisfied with the amount of guidance that Allah has given me. So I don't need to ask for more. No, it doesn't matter how much guidance you have. The fact is that you are always in need of more and better guidance, which is why

00:09:10--> 00:09:57

you say dinner Serato musta came in one record. And then in the next record, again, you make the same request in a surrogate Mr. King. And remember that guidance is of different kinds. The first level of guidance is general guidance or you can say intuition that Allah subhanaw taala has, has put in every creature. So we learn that some business model because Allah Allah the Halacha for some well Wallaby Dora for hada that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has created and fashioned everything and the one who has measured the decree of everything. And then he has also guided every creature under the arrow taco luxury in Hakuho sama herder that he gave every creature its unique

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

form and then he also guided a

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

Every creature. So for example, a bird knows how to eat, where to find its food, what to avoid, right? Even, you know, human beings, we know, you know, for example, a baby knows how to how to suck, how to drink milk, right? So each creature is guided in a way that Allah subhanaw taala has taught it, how to breathe, how to live, how to eat, et cetera. So this is the basic general level of guidance that Allah subhanaw taala has given to each creature. Then a greater level of guidance is the is the level of knowledge, where through the prophets and messengers, Allah subhanaw taala has taught people how to do things in a better way, in a way that is pleasing to Allah. And when when

00:11:00--> 00:11:28

people learn those ways and follow those ways, then they're brought out of darkness into light. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is addressed in the Quran that we're in Canada de la Serato, Mr. Clean, that indeed you guide to the straight path, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught people what the straight path is, how to do things that please Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:29--> 00:12:20

then the third level of guidance is, is the ability or tofield the ability to, to adopt guidance, to accept the truth to not only recognize the truth, but accept it to internalize guidance. So, this is guidance that only Allah subhanaw taala is able to give because he is the one who opens the hearts of people and he is the one who allows everything to come together so that a person can adopt guidance, internalize it, and then also act upon it and do what is right. So in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says in Nicola demon above that, he says to His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indeed you cannot guide whom you love, meaning you cannot make people accept guidance,

00:12:21--> 00:13:05

no matter how much you love them. So the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said I'm loved his uncle Abu Talib, but he was not able to make a will to live except Islam. He could only tell him he could only inform him he could only show him the way. Now, how was able to live to accept that guidance when he would have that willingness and that yearning and that desire to accept guidance that Allah subhanaw taala would also give him Tofik but I will not have did not have that. So Allah subhanaw taala did not give him tofi. So we learn what our kin Allah Yeah, the Manisha, it is Allah who guides whom He wills. So this is the third level of guidance where Allah subhanaw taala gives ability to people to

00:13:06--> 00:14:00

accept and internalize guidance. Then the fourth level of guidance is guidance on the Day of Judgment, where a person is directed toward paradise or to word hellfire. So we learn that on the day of judgment as people of Paradise will enter Paradise, they will say Alhamdulillah he lady had Anna Lee had. All praise is to Allah, who guided us to this honey who showed us the way to Paradise. We learn that on the Day of Judgment, we're seeing a con la marina taco in El Jannetty zoom Allah that the people of Taqwa will be taken will will be driven to paradise in groups and people will be taken guided toward paradise. And then there will be others who will be

00:14:01--> 00:14:52

Fado, whom Ill Serato DJ Rahim, who will be guided meaning they will be led to the path of hellfire, meaning Jahannam will be their destination. So this is the fourth level of guidance where a person will be directed to their final destination, either Jana or jahannam. Now think about it. If you want to reach a destination, then there's a couple of things that you need before you can get to that destination. So for instance, if you're going to drive over there, first and foremost, you need to know how to drive you need knowledge, right? You need a license, then having knowledge of driving having a license alone is not enough. You also need a vehicle as a means of transportation something

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

that you can drive. So knowledge alone is not enough. You also need to feel you also need the ability

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

From Allah subhanaw taala, to give you the means to give you the opportunity to give you the ability to obey Him to worship Him to do things in the best way. And then if vehicle alone is not enough, you also need gas, right? And then you need the directions, you need the map. And then on the road, you need patience and determination and focus. Because what happens with some people is that as they're driving, they get distracted. Oh, there's a mall over here, oh, there's a beach over here. And then they forget that they forget where they were going. And they get distracted by things on the way. Sometimes what happens is that you are driving towards your destination, but then the roads

00:15:41--> 00:16:29

are closed. So you need the roads to be open as well. And sometimes more than that, you also need experience, you need courage you need experience as to how to drive on a certain road through certain traffic and how to get to a certain destination. So we learned a long time, Rahim Allah, Allah says that the final stage of guidance is that a person is put on the path to paradise. And the one who was guided to the straight path in the world will be put on the right path to Paradise, which is the home of reward. And a person's feet will be firm on that path, in proportion to the firmness of his feet on the straight path in the world. You see, on the Day of Judgment, we all have

00:16:29--> 00:17:19

to cross the salt, the path which remember it is actually suspended over hellfire. And that is the only way to Paradise. So how can a person cross that path? Which is sharper than a sword thinner than a hair? SubhanAllah? How can a person cross that? How can a person have stability and firmness on that path? How it is only possible to have stability and firmness on that path. If a person was stable and firm on the right path in the world, uncertain was the theme in the world. So the way you are journeying on the straight path right now in this life, is the way that you will cross that path on the Day of Judgment. So you need experience to cross that path? How do you get that experience in

00:17:19--> 00:18:00

this world? How swift Are you in obedience to Allah? How, how consistent are you in obedience to Allah? How much attention? Do you put in doing things the way that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with. So this is the final level of guidance. And when we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance in a Serato Mr. Kane, we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for all levels of guidance that he or Allah guide me in my worldly matters. Sometimes you're struggling to do basic things. For example, you're struggling to even stand on your feet or to walk or to, you know,

00:18:02--> 00:18:47

work for long or read your I may be constantly twitching or something like that, because of which you're struggling to do basic things even. And then sometimes you were struggling to accept the truth, any or you're struggling to find the right answers. You're struggling with your actions in a you know, in theory, what the reward of fasting is, and how we should be fasting, etcetera. But when it comes to actually fasting in an excellent way, then we are falling short in our actions. Sometimes, you know, we are inconsistent. We know what to do, and we're doing it but we're not very consistent. So when we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, we're asking Allah for all of these

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

levels of guidance.

00:18:50--> 00:19:39

And remember that guidance is more important than anything else in your life. It is even more important than the food you eat. Because, in fact, the ruler must say that there is actually no comparison between guidance and even your most basic necessities such as food. Why? Because the one who is given guidance becomes of the most clean. And the person who has Taqwa who is conscious of Allah, who is pious, who is righteous. Then Allah subhanaw taala says woman yet the pillar her yadgir Allahu Maharajah, while resuming, Hazel later said, Allah will show him the way out of every trouble. And Allah will give him sustenance from where he cannot even expect any if you have hedaya

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

If you have guidance, Allah subhanaw taala will also provide you sustenance Dakhla Amen. Guidance is the key to worldly success also, this doesn't mean that we pray and we fast and we give sadaqa etc, so that we can live a wealthy easy disease

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

is free life in the world, that's not the goal. But that is a benefit, a side benefit, the real goal is the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you please Allah when Allah is on your side, then all of your needs will be taken care of, then you will not have to chase after the little things in life. And when it when a person is left to his own, to to to take care of themselves, then their life becomes incredibly hard, very, very difficult. And when Allah subhanaw taala takes care of the matters of his slave, then the slaves life becomes worryfree. And it becomes very easy. So this is why we ask Allah subhanaw taala for the key to success, and that is hedaya guidance. And remember

00:20:50--> 00:21:37

that we are in need of guidance in every matter of our lives, every single matter of our lives. Because you know, every moment of our lives where we are doing something, right, we are choosing to do something, we are making a decision to do something or not do something. So for example, sometimes we're talking and we have a tendency to, for instance, move our hands a lot, and that is fine. But what is a better way of talking? The Prophet salallahu early, he was setting him when he would address people. And when he would give homework, how would he move his hands, we learned that he would just use the pointer finger, he wouldn't be, you know, waving his arms back and forth and

00:21:37--> 00:22:24

raising his arms, you know, up and down constantly. No, he would just use his pointer finger SubhanAllah. So imagine now, if a person is talking, and yes, they are expressive, and they're using their hands, but they use their pointer finger, then what happens? They're rewarded for using their pointer finger in the way that the prophets of Allah who are using them did while talking. So Subhanallah now their hand gestures even are a means of earning Allah subhanaw taala does pleasure isn't this beautiful? Any there, there are so many things that we do in one day, so many actions that we do without even thinking. And not every action is necessarily a religious action. But if we

00:22:24--> 00:23:16

do our worldly actions, also in a way that are pleasing to Allah, in a way that the prophets of Allah who are using them demonstrated that imagine, we are earning Hassan and we're earning good deeds for the mundane, even. So, we are in need of guidance, improvement in every matter of our lives. Anything about it, when it comes to, you know, perfecting something, and beautifying something, then you pay attention to a lot of detail. Right? For instance, I'm sure women can relate with this very well, that a full face of makeup is what is a just a little bit of lipstick, and maybe some eyeliner. And that's it. No, any there is even a way of no makeup makeup. Right? There is

00:23:16--> 00:24:07

a certain type of you no layering that you do on on your face in different ways using different products. Right? Why? Because you're paying attention to detail, you're paying attention to detail, and Subhanallah Honey, if we can put in so much effort on a regular basis and so much money, just to look a certain way, just to look a certain way just to get the right shade, just to get the right, you know, effect from the side of the face, et cetera. Any, why can we not strive to earn the pleasure the approval of Allah subhanaw taala that will be everlasting? How long do you keep your makeup on for? Not not very long. In fact, if you make water regularly, then you cannot keep it on

00:24:07--> 00:24:59

for very long anyway. Subhanallah So why can we not exert effort and learn ways of improving our actions, our worship in order to earn the eternal approval of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we cannot do that without guidance from Allah. So we are in need of guidance in every matter of our lives. Whether it is something that is external, that is visible, or it is something that is internal that is hidden. It could be in a very private matter of our lives. It could be something deep in our heart, whatever it is, we need guidance related to that. So for example, we need guidance toward Toba toward repentance for mistakes that we have made for things that we have done in ignorance.

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

or, you know, we may be doing things in a way that is not perfect and complete, there is room for improvement. For instance, if we're reciting Quran, right, we may be reciting correctly in the sense that we're not making any major mistakes. But if you recite to a teacher, they will stop you at every letter, every word, and they will leave, they will direct you to improve your recitation. You know, you may be praying salah, thinking that you're praying perfectly fine. But when you ask someone to check how you're praying, someone have knowledge, they might correct you that you should be sitting in this way, you know, your toes should be facing that way. Or when you're making record,

00:25:44--> 00:26:31

Your back needs to be more straight, you know, what you're reciting can be improved. So there's always a need of improving and perfecting the actions that we are already doing. Sometimes, we have the willingness to do something, but we don't have the ability, Allahu Akbar, we want to do something, but we don't have the ability to do it. So when we ask Allah for guidance, we're asking Allah for the ability to do good also, sometimes we have the ability, but not the willingness Subhanallah we may have the money sitting with us, but we don't have the willingness, we don't have the knowledge, the intention to spend it in the right way in in a good place. We ask Allah for

00:26:31--> 00:27:16

guidance, and Allah subhanaw taala sends someone our way, who shows us who tells us that oh, you can give this much money over here for such and such cause. And it may be a little amount of money, but you give it and Allah subhanaw taala. Like that increases you in guidance. And sometimes, you know, you are doing good currently in the present, but there is no guarantee that you will continue to do these good deeds in the future. Doesn't it happen that a person is doing something good at a certain time, but then five years later, 10 years later, things change. They're no longer doing what they used to do, they stop, they just they discontinue. Why? Because doing that particular action doing

00:27:16--> 00:27:59

that particular good deed became very hard for them, it became very difficult for them, their knifes prevented them, or the fear of people or whatever prevented them so they no longer have the ability to continue. So when we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, we're asking Allah for guidance in the future also. So look at this, we're asking Allah for hedaya, to repent, to increase in guidance, to have the ability to do good to have the willingness to do good, and to remain guided and to increase in guidance in the future. So when you say then a Serato musta came that oh Allah guide us to the straight path. Keep all of these matters in your mind that he or Allah, guide me to repent

00:27:59--> 00:28:57

from sins and errors that I have made out of ignorance, give me the ability to remain consistent. Give me the ability to be guided in the future also increase me in my taqwa and perfect my guidance in all my matters. Now, when it comes to, you know, input the, you know, hedaya stability on guidance. This is something that is very important. Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that first the Kim karma wisdom first the theme now be steadfast as you have been commanded, meaning right now you're on the right path, remain on the right path. Have is still karma have stability. We learn that Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger in the Quran,

00:28:57--> 00:29:55

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that will allow hula and third but NACA look at the kid that dog can lay him shaped and kalila if we had not given you stability, you would have almost inclined to them a little bit any you would have inclined to accepting the request of the machine a little bit and you did not because we gave you stability Subhan Allah if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in need of stability on right guidance, then what about us? We are in greater need of is the karma of stability on right guidance. We can never think that all I have guidance. I'm a Muslim. I pray five times a day I wear the hijab I'm fine. You know, I want to know other doors. The doors of guidance.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

I'm I already have this. No we are always

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

need of guidance. We are in extreme need of guidance no matter what our level is, even if we just did Hajj and we have done 10 formulas, and we have, we have a habit of reciting sort of the vocal alarm run every single day. We do Quran hotma every seven days, we sound Salawat to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam monitor 100,000 times a day, no matter what our level is, no matter what good deeds we do, remember, we are still in need of guidance, because if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam needed this beat he needed is to come, then we need it even more. And remember that the condition of the heart is such that it is ever changing. The heart is not stagnant. It's

00:30:44--> 00:31:31

constantly changing. I'm Santa Maria de la Mourinho was asked that what do I did the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said to make most frequently and she replied that he would say, yarmulke liberal globe submit can be Isla de Nick, that all Turner off the hearts, make my heart firm on your religion. On Saturday, I said that I asked the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that how come you know you made this door? A lot? Why? Ne she was implying that you are the Prophet of Allah, you are already firm on the religion of Allah. Why do you keep asking Allah to keep your heart firm on on his religion? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, oh, I'm selama there is no person

00:31:31--> 00:31:59

except that his heart is between the two fingers of the fingers of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala any, he is the one who makes steadfast whom He wills and he causes to deviate whomever he wills, any there is no guarantee that your heart will remain as it is. Because the nature of the heart is that it changes it turns.

00:32:00--> 00:32:48

It shifts This is the nature of the heart. It will claim said that when the slave comes to know that Allah is mocha liberal Kuru the Turner of the hearts and that underlie your Hulu banal Modi will call be that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart. And that Coolio men who have he shut in every day Allah is bringing about a new matter. And that year for Arlo Maya sharp He does what He wills and yeah coma you read he commands what He wills and yeah, the mania shirt or illustrata Mr. Kim, He guides whom He wills to the straight path and you little domain your shirt, he sends a stray whom He wills and there is zoom into sharp or to the loom into sharp, he honors whom He wills and

00:32:48--> 00:32:57

abase is whom He wills. When a person comes to know about this, then such a slave such a person does not become free of fear.

00:32:58--> 00:33:53

He is afraid lest his heart is turned away or lest Allah prevents him from guidance or turns his heart after having guided him. And this is the reason why it will kill him says that Allah praises those slaves who say on a banana led to the Kulu banana BARDA it her data Anna will have learner Mila doon Kurama in Naka, Intel were hub, that Oh our Lord, do not let our hearts deviate after you have guided us and grant us from Yourself special mercy. Indeed you are the bestower of gifts. It will carry him says that if there was no fear of the hearts becoming deviated, they would not make the storm there is a chance that the heart can get deviated after having been guided. This is why

00:33:53--> 00:34:40

they pray to Allah that Allah Allah do not let our hearts deviate after you have guided us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the heart is called curled up in the muscle meal called boo the column is called the kalam why, because of the Colucci because of its constant turning about. And he said in the main method, we'll call be commercially reshooting. More or less content V Asli. Shadow writing that the example of the heart is like that of a feather that is hanging off of a tree. And what happens to a feather that is hanging from a tree. The wind turns it about from one direction to another, any because it's so light, and it's hanging off from the tree.

00:34:40--> 00:35:00

What will happen as the wind blows, it doesn't have to be a fast wind or a tornado. No, a light breeze even is enough to change the direction of that feather. One moment it's facing one way, another moment it has turned around. It's spinning. Right? And now it's facing another way. This is the

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

State of the heart, that the different circumstances in life and the different desires and temptations, you know, of the knifes and the West Versa of shaitan. And the things that we see around us, they constantly turn the state of our heart, any one second, we are focused on Allah subhanaw taala. And what happens the very second, the very next moment, you know, we are tempted to do something else, to do something that is not pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. In another Hadith, we learn that the heart of the son of Adam turns about faster than the boiling pot. And if you have noticed how, for example, a pot of water is boiling, when you want water to boil, before you put for

00:35:51--> 00:36:39

example, pasta or rice or something in it, then it's bubbling right. And in in the bubbling water, there is a lot of intensity, a lot of speed. And you see how the bubbles are constantly rising to the surface constantly. And the water is constantly turning about it comes to the surface out of pressure. And then it goes back down. And then from the pressure again, it rises to the surface Subhanallah This is how the heart is that it is also constantly changing, constantly turning, there's, you know, constant flow of different emotions, different feelings, different thoughts, different ideas, different conditions that go through our heart. And we see that the prophets of

00:36:39--> 00:37:28

Allah, they were people of faith. They were people of European, yet they prayed for themselves. Look at Ibrahim alayhis salam, he broke the idols with his own hands. Yet he made Dora what you knew bunny web and iya and not whoodle or SNAM that Oh my Lord protect me and my children from worshipping idols. Can you imagine? Ibrahim red has said I'm broke idols with his own hands. He left his family, he left his father. Why? Because of these idols. He didn't want to have anything to do with them. And subhanAllah he is the one who is making dua to Allah you protect me there is no guarantee in the future. I don't have any control over myself in the future. I don't know what will

00:37:28--> 00:38:14

become of me. So you protect me from ever worshipping idols, me and my children. This is why we make dua that lead to kidney illnesses, tougher terrain, that Oh my Lord do not lead me to my naps for even the blink of an eye. Use of Allah, his sunnah. Look at the Torah that he made. The were funny Muslim man will hit me the Saudi Hain that Oh, my Lord caused me to die as a muslim and join me with the righteous. When did he make this door. He made this door after he had endured what he endured in the house of disease and in the prison. And then as he was brought out of there, and then he was given power Subhanallah his family is reunited. All these years, he has been making the right

00:38:14--> 00:39:03

choices. His tests were very difficult, but he was making right choices. Still, he makes the wrong or Allah allow me to die as a muslim. And he up until this point, okay, I have been in submission to you. But I don't know what's going to happen in the future. We don't know what's going to happen in the future, what test might come that that can turn us away from right guidance. And it is necessary that we keep working, striving to strengthen and renew our faith. This is why we are obligated to pray five times a day, we are obligated to worship Allah subhanaw taala not just once a day, not once a month, not once a week, but five times a day, every single day, no matter what day it is. It

00:39:03--> 00:39:15

could be the day that you're getting married, it could be the day that you're taking your you know, exam, like a really serious difficult exam still you have to pray five times a day no matter what.

00:39:17--> 00:39:59

So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that certainly faith in Eman it becomes old inside of you just as clothes your clothes become old. Any your clothes over time what happens? They become old. You know sometimes there is a tear there is a rip and you know you have to kind of fix it right? You have to mend your clothes as they become old. You know you have to wash them. You have to iron them. You have to fix them. So just like that, your Eman also inside of you becomes all so you need to renew it. He said pray to Allah to renew your

00:40:00--> 00:40:51

In your heart. So this is why we say 18 A certain was the theme in every salah, and we have to be firm until we die. Allah subhanaw taala says we're Buddha Rebecca had to actually attain, worship your Lord, until certainty comes to you, meaning until you die. Well Atomo tuna Illa we're anti Muslim on do not die, except while you are Muslim, in a state of submission to Allah subhana wa Tada. And remember, the speed and manner in which we proceed on the straight path in this world is the same speed and manner in which we go on the assault on the bridge on the Day of Judgment. In Hades, we learned that some people will proceed on the path in the blink of an eye any they will

00:40:51--> 00:41:47

cross the path how, as quickly as you blink your eye, you close and you open your eye. Other people will cross it in speed of lightning. Some will cross it as fast moving clouds in it. Sometimes you see the clouds in the sky, how they're moving so quickly. Other people will cross the bridge like shooting stars. Some will cross the bridge like a fast blowing wind. Some will cross the bridge like like running horses, and some like light like people that are running and some will have to crawl on all fours on their hands and feet. Allahu Akbar. And the owner might say this is because hell to rizona Elana Contin term alone, you are you being recompensed except for what you used to do.

00:41:48--> 00:42:38

Meaning your condition on the Day of Judgment will be exactly how your spiritual state was in the world. So the way that a person is uncertain was the claim in this life is the way that they will be on that route on the Day of Judgment. Now, the question is, how can we have steadfastness on the straight path? Well, the first thing is that we recognize we know that it is Allah who enables people to be firm on the straight path. You said beat Allahu Levina Amen, we'll build coalitions, Fabbi Deville, hired to duniya will occur. It is Allah who gives stability to those people who believe through the firm word meaning law, Allah in the law, in worldly life and also in the

00:42:38--> 00:43:35

hereafter. It's not your strength, your grit, your knowledge, your family, your circumstances or your person, your inner strength, your self discipline, etcetera, that enables you to be firm on the straight path. No, this is purely from Allah azza wa jal. So ask Allah. Ask Allah to increase you in guidance to keep you firm on guidance. Another thing is that we have to do our part which is that we should adhere to Iman and Taqwa any, we should believe and adopt ways of increasing and strengthening our belief and increasing in our piety. Because Allah subhanaw taala says that, oh, you have believed, fear Allah and believe in His Messenger, and Allah will give you double portion

00:43:35--> 00:44:21

of his mercy. And he will give you a light with which you will walk on the day of judgment and also in this world and Allah will pardon your sins for you. When will this happen? If you fear Allah and you believe, then another thing is that we must hold on to the Quran because the Quran is what it is the rope of Allah. And we learn that it is a hook, it is the truth and it has been revealed. Why leaves that bitter, Lavina Amano so that Allah subhanaw taala gives firmness and stability to those who believe any, when you hold on to the Quran, that you recite it, you reflect on it, you keep learning it, you keep studying it, then what will happen Allah subhanaw taala will also keep you

00:44:21--> 00:44:59

firm and steadfast on the right path. So find a way some way of holding on to the Quran. And your life is unique. So you have to see what is possible for you. How can you connect with the Quran at a better level at a stronger level? How can you strengthen your connection? Another important thing is that we should keep learning. Keep learning the deen and you never think that Islamic studies that you studied at school, all right, or in Sunday School at the weekend school or you know a course that you studied once upon a time or a class that you took on a weekend. Allah

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

sure that you heard randomly, you know, five weeks ago that is sufficient Alhamdulillah these things definitely help, but it is necessary that we keep learning, we keep learning. So for example, even if you go for Joomla hotspot and you select a place where, you know there are quality havens where you actually learn something, and when you go and sit in the hotbar, any pay attention, listen attentively, try to remember what you heard. If something was difficult to comprehend, go ask the Imam, go ask questions, seek clarification. And otherwise also find a way in which you can continue to increase in your Islamic knowledge. Because knowledge, remember it is known and ignorance is

00:45:47--> 00:46:35

darkness. And we learn that Allah is the friend of those who believe, and he brings them out of darkness into light. So find ways of learning of increasing in your knowledge. Because when you increase in your knowledge, you have greater confidence, you have better, better o'clock you have strength in your actions, you have the motivation to continue, also learn about the lives of the righteous, especially the prophets of Allah. Because in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the stories of his prophets, why man who served b2b He flew ADEQ so that we strengthen your fit your heart with it, we stabilize your heart with it. Any the stories are an inspiration for us. So for

00:46:35--> 00:47:22

example, the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, how he was thrown in the fire, but yet he did not leave his faith. And then what happened even when Gibreel came to help him, he said, husband Allah, Allah is enough for me, I don't need your help. Allah's help is enough for me Subhan Allah, look at the story of Musa his center. He's standing before the water and fit around is coming from behind. And as the people around him are giving a pope he says color in memory of visa Dean, my Lord is with me, He will guide me look at the magicians who believed in in Musa alayhis salam for their own threatened to kill them. And what did they say? Loudly? No harm in Illa Robina Raji Arun, we're

00:47:22--> 00:48:11

going to return to our Lord anyway. So learn these stories, reflect on them, review them so that you can have strength in faith. When you're becoming weak. You get strength. You you you find stability and firmness. Another important thing is that strive struggle hard in the way of Allah. And this means that you know, sometimes it's not easy to, to, you know, make time, sit down, open the Quran, recite the Quran, you know, you really have to struggle against yourself, you're knifes, but strive, sometimes it's not easy to recite Quran properly, you know, you have to slow down you have to pay attention to every letter, it may be hard for you because, you know, maybe there is an issue with

00:48:11--> 00:48:58

your throat something. But strive just because something is difficult, it doesn't mean that we quit. No. Sometimes wearing the hijab is incredibly hard, very hard. But remember, when Medina Jaha, to Fina learner, the unknown sabudana those who strive in our way, we will definitely guide them to our paths. So strive in the way of Allah and Allah will continue to guide you. And then keep busy in doing good things. Any, ask yourself, no matter what you're doing, that is something that is good. Is it something that is worth my time and effort? How can I improve it? How can I do it in a way that is pleasing to Allah? Maybe I can correct my intention. Maybe I can correct my manner. Maybe as

00:48:58--> 00:49:42

I'm engaged in this work, I continue to remember Allah I continue to make Vickers Allah subhanaw taala says, the meaning of witches, but if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them, and a firmer position for them in faith. Anyone you obey Allah, then this is something that strengthens you in your faith. And then what either Latina woman Laguna, Argentina or Lima, then we would have given them from ourselves a great reward, and then we would have guided them to the straight path. So how do you get guidance on the straight path? When you obey Allah when you keep busy in doing good things? And also be mindful of Allah and guard what Allah has obligated

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

because the prophets of Allah Who are your Salam said, If I will let her phulka guard Allah and Allah will guard you. What what does it mean by guarding Allah, meaning guard what Allah subhanaw taala has imposed on you what Allah has obligated on you, and then Allah will guard you, your body, your mind

00:50:00--> 00:50:20

and your family, your property, but most importantly, your deen. Allah will protect that. And then do good, whatever or how little it may be, when Allah subhanaw taala gives you the ability, the willingness to do something good, then don't belittle it, do it anyway, because one good deed leads to another.

00:50:21--> 00:51:07

He Shamblin Urawa. He reported from his father, he said that when you see someone doing something good, then realize that there is a string of good deeds behind that particular good deed. Any a person doesn't just randomly does a major good deed or any good deed? No, before you do any good deed, there were a number of other good deeds that you did. So for example, if a person is reciting Quran, for instance, a juice a day, how does that happen randomly? No, this is because the person was in the habit of reciting Quran even before Yes, it may have been a little on a daily basis. But it was something because of which they were able to recite more Quran. And he said, When you see

00:51:07--> 00:51:17

someone doing something bad, then realize that there are many sisters of this evil. And he this is not a unique occurrence, there were many other sins

00:51:18--> 00:52:08

that the person did before which led to the sin. So, remember that one good deed leads to another good deed, this is how you have stability on the right path, that you do good, and that good will lead you to another good which will lead you to another good and at the same time do not belittle since it will pay him said that sins are like wounds, wounds or, for example, an uninfected, boil or sore, you know, on the skin. Imagine how painful that is. And he said how many wounds there are, that lead a person to death and destruction Subhanallah any a person can get injured. And then that injury, you know, is a wound and that won't get infected and then there's you know, high fever and

00:52:08--> 00:52:56

complications because of which a person can literally die, literally. So he said the one who wishes to be steadfast, then it does not befit him that He belittles sins, or that he finds joy in committing sins, or that he makes a pile of minor sins, because sins are destructive. Allah subhanaw taala says for a HELOC, now home be Do not be him, we destroyed them because of their sins, Allahu Akbar, we destroyed them because of their sins. So do not belittle saints do not find joy in committing sins. Another important thing is keep good company, the prophets of Allah who are used and was told in the Quran was big enough Sycamore Alladhina, you're the owner of bombilla data where

00:52:56--> 00:53:41

she, you read on our job, that remain in the company of those people who call upon their Lord in the morning and in the evening, seeking his face, remain in their company. Because when you will remain in their company, what will happen, you will increase in faith, you will increase in hope. And it will pay him said about his teacher, that there would be times when we would be filled with fear. And you know, Fear leads to negative thoughts, sometimes negative thoughts about Allah even. And he said that we would be in such a state, and we will go to our teacher. And at times, you know, we would just see him and he would begin talking. And that would remove all of our fear and our

00:53:41--> 00:54:30

negative thoughts. And it would in fact convert our condition into that of strength and conviction and satisfaction. SubhanAllah. And he sometimes, you know, when you're alone in your head, in your head, literally, you only have your own thoughts to hear your own negative thoughts to hear, then what happens you get trapped in them. So when you keep righteous company, and you hear them say good things, positive words, even if they're not directly advising you, they're just talking about their day, or they're talking about their thoughts or their plan of action. What does that do? It fills you with hope it inspires you. It encourages you. So it's very important that we keep good company,

00:54:30--> 00:54:59

righteous company, you know, moron that will do a lot more annual, he would say Edulis Bina Nope. Mintzer that come sit with us? Let us believe for an hour meeting. Come let's sit together and talk about something good so that we revive and strengthen our faith. And even Masaru Radi Allahu Anhu you know, he would also say this, and then he would make dua along with ZTE man and we are Kenan. We're FICON that oh Allah increase me in email.

00:55:00--> 00:55:54

And in conviction and an understanding, and you see, the benefit of keeping good company is that every believer is the mirror of his believer. So, you know, a good person will help you see your, your good qualities, all right. And also areas where you need improvement. Because sometimes, you know, we have a lot of self doubt, a lot of doubt. Or we, we really undermine, you know, our potential, or we discredit ourselves constantly. We don't believe the, you know, that we have any good quality, sometimes, you know, we are trapped in the cycle of negativity. So, a righteous friend, you know, gives you encouragement, and assures you that you know, you are capable, you are

00:55:54--> 00:56:46

able to do good things. You know, when you look at yourself in the mirror, you don't just see faults, you also see good things, right. So, likewise, a good friend will direct you to recognizing your potential, and your good qualities for which you can praise and thank Allah subhanaw taala for and they will also help you identify your your errors, your mistakes, so that you can improve. Another important thing is, please watch your tongue. Keep tight reins on your tongue. Be careful about what you say. When you're angry, when you're hurt. When you're overloaded with work, when you're struggling. Be very, very careful. Do not say wrong negative things about your parents, about

00:56:46--> 00:56:53

your loved ones, about your children, about your employer, about your coworkers about your helpers about

00:56:54--> 00:57:46

your Lord, do not say wrong negative bad things. Because when a person begins to say negative things, bad things that what happens, you never know that might be a time of acceptance of supplications and Allah subhanaw taala makes that negative thing your reality. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that les is the chemo Iman or Aberdeen had diaster chemical booboo, the Eman of a slave cannot be correct until his heart is correct until his heart is steadfast. And he said the heart cannot be correct. It cannot be steadfast until his tongue is that first until his tongue is correct. So keep a tight control on your tongue. Learn to remain silent in situations

00:57:46--> 00:58:43

where you do not need to talk where you do not need to offer your golden advice. Learn to remain silent and not bother people, not offend them, not injure their feelings and not make their life difficult for them. Learn to keep silent when you need to be silent. And keep a control on your tongue. So that you know what to say. When to say how much to say in which manner you should say and ask Allah subhanaw taala to correct your tongue said diddly Sani that oh my lord, correct my tongue. Keep it straight. Another important thing is that keep holding yourself accountable and keep striving to discipline yourself. Any don't think that? You know you? You did something to discipline

00:58:43--> 00:59:29

yourself, you know when you were young or five years ago, and that is sufficient? No, this is an ongoing journey. Mohammed bin mancha said that I have spent 40 years in fighting against my knifes I have struggled for 40 years to discipline my knifes Allahu Akbar 40 years. hustle bustle. He said that the believer continues to watch over himself. And he continues to hold himself accountable for the sake of Allah. And on the Day of Judgment, the account of such people will be easier. Why? Because they already held themselves accountable. And those who do not hold themselves accountable, who don't discipline themselves, who don't strive against themselves, then what will happen on the

00:59:29--> 01:00:00

Day of Judgment, their account will be harder. So for example, if you strive against yourself, to discipline yourself, you will check how much you are talking right you will check how much you are eating in which way you are looking at people and things like that what words you are selecting. And when you are careful, you protect yourself from a lot of mistakes and errors. But when you're not careful, you're careless you don't keep a keep a check on yourself. You let your

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

yourself loose, then you end up injuring this person and that person again and again and again and you end up accumulating so many wrong things. Allah subhanaw taala says a flemons CAHA. Certainly the person who purifies himself has succeeded. Now remember that there are certain things that become an obstacle on the path of guidance. They prevent us from becoming steadfast and firm on the right path. And what are these things, these are following desires. Allah says, well at the Tiberi Hawa for you will look on Seville ALLAH, do not follow the desire because it will mislead you from the way of Allah, which desire, wrong desire. For example, the desire to eat something while you're

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

fasting, don't follow that.

01:00:50--> 01:01:38

Don't follow that. Likewise, the desire to give someone an earful when you're upset at them, don't follow that desire, the desire to look at something that is not appropriate to look at, don't follow that desire. So, let the Tiberian Hawa for you little the current civilian love for getting the verses of Allah. Moving on from the Quran, any a person detaches himself from the book of Allah, there was once a time when they were connected with the book of Allah, and now they leave it. Then we learned in the Quran, the person who finds Salah come in here, for at Barrow, who shaytaan shaitan follows that person and that person becomes of those who are misguided then Rajib any when a

01:01:38--> 01:02:24

person is very impressed with themselves, that Oh, I have done this and this and this, I have accomplished such and such and such I am a good person, I'm a righteous person. This is a huge mistake. This prevents a person from from striving to become better from improving themselves because they're satisfied with their present condition and what will happen now, they will not bother to improve, so they will actually fall backward. The colorful things of this world, there are also a huge obstacle on the right path. Bad Company is also a huge company a huge obstacle on the right path. And when a person is steadfast on who they are on the right path, then what are the

01:02:24--> 01:03:10

benefits? The benefits are that first of all, Allah subhanaw taala gives them abundant blessings. What Allah was the calm or Allah Budhia kuti let us pay now Houma and other QA, Allah subhanaw taala protects them from fear, from grief from regret from sadness in the Latina Carlota Boone Hola, Tomas de como, Fela homophone la himolla homea has an own Allah subhanaw taala gives them the company the friendship of the angels, that an observer or lay him will melodica and the angels inspire good positive thoughts in them and let the half of Allah doesn't know and especially at the time of death, the angels welcome such a person will actually ruble Jana to give him good news.

01:03:12--> 01:04:00

And also when a person is steadfast and they spend their life many years in obedience to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the white hair of the believer are a light, Allah Akbar. So if you develop gray hair in Islam, white hair in Islam, then we learn in Hadith, that for every white hair, a person receives a good deed, and his rank is raised, Allahu Akbar. And if a person continues to worship Allah subhanaw taala, until he leaves this world, then we learn in a hadith that a man came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and he said, I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship of Allah and that You are the messenger of Allah. And I pray salah, five

01:04:00--> 01:04:48

daily prayers, and I fast in the month of Ramadan, and I pray in it, I give the cat then where will I be on the Day of Judgment in which group in which category? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever dies in this way, meaning on this path, doing these things can mean a slick Delfino, Shuhada he will be among those who are truthful, and among the martyrs, meaning in the highest, high, higher ranks of paradise, Allahu Akbar. So we need to do our best to remain guided, but we can only be guided if Allah subhanaw taala gives us guidance, and Allah subhanaw taala increases us in guidance. So we need to continue to make dua, so the dollars that we can make first

01:04:48--> 01:04:59

and foremost, Idina, slit autonomous the team Oh Allah guide us to the to the straight path guide us to repentance, guidance to improvement guidance in

01:05:00--> 01:05:54

Every aspect every matter of our lives teach us more things better things give us willingness to obey you, give us the ability to obey you. A thinner sword almost Hakim, another art we should make Robina law to the Kulu burner burner in her data. What happened blown me lagoon Kurama in the Intel will have that our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after you have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy, indeed you are the Bestower you see here we're asking Allah for a special mercy. Any grant is from yourself mercy because the Mercy of Allah that is the greatest and that is the best and it includes. It includes every good thing of this life and the next life. Rama includes a man

01:05:54--> 01:06:47

though hate. It includes obedience, different acts of obedience. It includes ease in earning our livelihood. It includes safety and health, well being physical and mental. It includes sufficiency in this life. It includes ease in life and ease at the time of death and ease in the grave and ease on the day of judgment. And ultimately, Jana is Allah's mercy and Futurama t so her blood I'm Aladdin, Cara, Grant us your special mercy. And remember that it is because of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy that a person is guided to faith. That a person has Taqwa that a person is able to have the special friendship of Allah. So we should pray that Allah Allah grant us from Yourself special

01:06:47--> 01:07:38

mercy, and in mental health, Allah is the bestower of gifts. What gift are we asking for in the store, the gift of guidance, the gift of steadfastness on guidance, and special mercy, great mercy from Allah azza wa jal, another thought we should make files last summer where it will, and totally give it Dounia will ask your telephony Muslim and will hit me the soil behind that oh Creator of the heavens and the earth, you are my protector in this world, and in the hereafter caused me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous. This is the draw of use of our the his center where he is, first of all, acknowledging that every good thing in his life was because of Allah because Allah is

01:07:38--> 01:08:27

the One who created everything. And Allah, you are my friend in this life and in the next life, because everyone in our lives, remember their temporary spouse, children, good friend's parents, whoever they are, they're temporarily with us, who is always always with us, until we give it dunya will. So we ask Allah to a funny Muslim and make me die as a muslim in a state while I am in submission to you, and in the hereafter join me with the righteous, keep me among their company, which is of course in Jana. Another day out, we should make a lot of banana affiliate or eyeliner sobre with olefin, I mostly mean that our Lord, pour upon us patients, and let us die as Muslims in

01:08:27--> 01:09:16

submission to you. This is the dua that the magicians have in our own made after they believed in Musa alayhis salam, and for our own threatened to kill them all. So they made the law that they understood that for our own was, was any a tyrant, a tyrant, who was going to torture them who was going to make their life very, very, very difficult and painful. So they asked Allah that Allah Allah, you will pour patients on us so that we are able to remain steadfast in the face of all of these difficulties. And sometimes it happens with a person that you find yourself surrounded by trials, you know, you try to stabilize yourself. And then what happens another test another trial,

01:09:16--> 01:09:59

another difficulty. So ask Allah, Ya Allah, pour down patience on me, give me steadfastness, and cause me to die as a muslim, that when I leave this world, I am in a state of Islam submission to you. Another thought we should make Allahumma Tofana Muslimeen What are Hina mostly mean? What el hecho Nabi Salih Hain Allah you know, Hosea? Well, I'm have to mean that Oh, Allah causes to die as Muslims and cause us to live as Muslims and join us with the righteous who are neither disappointed nor afflicted, or join us with the righteous without having been humiliated or

01:10:00--> 01:10:53

are afflicted any causes today as Muslims first of all what this means is that I am a Muslim until the end of my life any for all my life until the last moment of my life also I am in submission to you and then what are here now mostly me keep me alive as a Muslim keep us alive as Muslims any for as long as you allow me to live your allow me to live in a state of submission to you. And then what I'll hypnobirth slightly Hain in the hereafter join me with the righteous because Elmer O'Meara Minh or Hapa a person will be with those whom he loves, and then join me with them in a state. That is later Hosea. Well, I'm of TuneIn while I have not been wildly have not been humiliated, any How is a

01:10:53--> 01:11:40

person humiliated that they ended up disobeying Allah, because of which they will be punished in the next life in the hereafter that is the greatest humiliation that a person is punished on the day of judgment or a banana in a command to the hidden out of zeta, the person who is admitted in hell, then that person is truly humiliated.
