Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:49--> 00:01:09

are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish Rahi Sabri where Sidley Emery Washington rock data melissani yufka who Cali Allah Matthew Colby was sadly Sonny was through Sufi Mata Colby amin Yoruba alameen

00:01:11--> 00:02:02

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let the DR Lu takom makabe do not convert your homes into graveyards in the shade Atlanta young Pharaoh meenal Beatty lady took Rafi Surah Al Baqarah shaitan leaves the house in which pseudo terracotta is recited? So in this Hadees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to recite Surah Baqarah in our homes. Why? So that they're filled with blessing, they're filled, that there are such that the angels are present, and a house in which the Quran is not recited, then such a house is void of the blessing of Allah and such a house feels like a graveyard. So this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us

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

to fill our homes with the recitation of Surah Surah Baqarah inshallah, we will continue with the study of pseudo tabacalera and today we will begin with verse number 195 of pseudocode bacara. Allah subhanaw taala says, What unfit goofy sebelah Allah He wala to be a de Camila De Luca and spend in the way of Allah and do not throw yourselves with your own hands into destruction. Meaning when you will be stingy and you

00:02:36--> 00:03:26

meaning if you are stingy and you do not spend in the way of Allah, you are basically throwing yourself into destruction, but with your own hands, you are putting yourself in harm. So do not be stingy with yourself, do not be stingy in giving in the way of Allah and like this, save yourself from destruction. We learned that her they followed the love Mourinho, he said that this idea was revealed about spending in the way of Allah specifically, in another had these we learned that when the Muslims were conquering Constantinople, then we learned that a man he made a very unwise move. So the people said to him, stop, stop La ilaha illAllah. They said, up be a de la Luca, he is

00:03:26--> 00:04:16

putting himself into destruction. So about a uban Satya Nadella Horan, who he said that this idea was actually revealed about us, it was revealed about us the unsought when Allah subhanaw taala gave victory to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we said to ourselves, that come let us stay in our property and improve it. Meaning, let's just focus on growing our personal wealth now. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala revealed this idea that spend of your wealth in the way of Allah and do not throw yourselves into destruction with your own hands. So abou Brody, Allahu anhu explained, that that to throw oneself into destruction by one's own hands means that a person stays in his

00:04:16--> 00:05:00

wealth, only focusing on growing his own personal wealth and abundance going out in the way of Allah. So here we are being encouraged that you must spend of yourself in the way of Allah, how by worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, meaning do not hold back from obeying Allah subhanaw taala and spend your resources also in the way of Allah. You see, when a person goes for Hajj they have to spend money, when a person prays on time when a person goes for Jumeirah Salah, when a person you know fasts then this requires, you know, personal energy. This requires even sometimes money so give in the way

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

Allah in order to worship Allah subhanaw taala sometimes we have to, you know spend on Islamic education. So don't be stingy in these causes. When you spend in the way of Allah, you are basically focusing on yourself you are improving yourself, your real worse. So spend in the way of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala commands His servants in the Quran, that coulier evadne alladhina amanu up masala Tata, where Yun feel Kumi maryrose Akane home, that tell my servants who believe that they should establish prayer and they should spend out of what We have given them. Meaning use this money that Allah has given you, not just on, you know, just entertaining yourself just having fun, but

00:05:46--> 00:06:34

also spend in good causes, so that this will be a source of benefit for you for eternity. And remember that when you spend in the way of Allah, you're basically investing in your own future in your own success. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah, a yohannes or people ableto and fusa kamina Allah He Mally lahaie that all people, purchase yourselves from Allah with the wealth of Allah. What does that mean? That with the wealth that Allah has given you, set yourself free with the wealth that Allah has given you, by your freedom, by your eternal success? And how will that be? That's not that a person brings millions of dollars on the day of judgment that is

00:06:34--> 00:07:23

done right now that you use your wealth in order to worship and obey Allah, and you use your wealth for the religion of Allah. And this is what will ultimately bring you your success and salvation. And also, we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the rich are in fact, the poor, meaning the people who have a lot of money right now, they will in fact be poor on the Day of Judgment, except the person whom Allah gives wealth to. And so he gives it in charity to his right to his left to his front to his back, and he does good deeds with it. So the thing is that when a person has a lot of wealth, then, of course, it's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. But compared

00:07:23--> 00:08:02

to a person who has little, they have less opportunity for reward. Why because the person who has little is constantly, you know, being patient, and for their patients, they're being rewarded, but a person who is constantly in luxury, then they're not really observing any subject. So how are they supposed to get reward? The only way is that they keep spending of what they've been given in the way of Allah. This doesn't mean that you give everything but it means that you keep giving you focus on giving, not just collecting, and and not just on personal enjoyment. And remember that when you give something in the way of Allah, the reward will always be better. Allah subhanaw taala will,

00:08:02--> 00:08:52

will give you the reward, multiply times 700 times and even more, as we learn in the Quran. And then it is said, what I see no in Allah you hibel mercy Nene, and do good because Indeed, Allah loves the doors of good. The people who do is sad, who do good, who who do excellent deeds, who who don't just focus on the bare minimum, but they try to beautify their deeds, and they do that which Allah subhanaw taala likes with the best of intentions in the best of manners, then such people Allah subhanaw taala loves them. The question is, what how exactly can we do sn? How exactly can we do good? Remember that your son is with the Creator, and it is also with the creation? How is it that

00:08:52--> 00:09:36

we do your sin with our Creator with Allah subhanaw taala it is in the way that we worship Allah, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that your son is that you worship Allah as though you can see him. And if you cannot bring about that feeling that at least remember that he is watching you, he is looking at you. And when you worship Allah with that realization, that my lord is watching me, then this will definitely make your manner of worship more and more beautiful. And then your son with Allah also means that no matter where a person is, no matter what country what city what place, you know which area they're in, they are conscious of Allah subhanaw taala once the

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about you know the the best deeds or the deeds that will truly benefit people and he explained that hey, some are quantum for Santa Maria vida tala that no matter where you are, be good be excellent in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala for Abba, Shiro bill Jana and then you can rejoice with Jana with

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

The Good News of Jana, meaning, be a Morrison do good in worshipping Allah, no matter where you are not just in the masjid, not just at home, but all places that you that you go to. And then we learn. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that goodness and comfort are for him who worships his Lord, in a good manner, your sinner Eva therapy, meaning the person who worships his Lord in a good manner and serves as master sincerely, then such a person will has goodness and comfort meaning of good reward awaiting him. And when it comes to Salah also, we should perform Salah with your son, and your son, as I mentioned earlier, is also with the creation that we do good with the creation,

00:10:47--> 00:11:30

how in dealing with them, and be good to them, just as Allah subhana wa tada has been good to you, be generous to them be helpful, and do good to them for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala has approval, not to get something out of the creation. And when a person does sad, then we see here that in Allah you hibel mercy need, that Allah loves those people who do good. And we learn that a person who does if sent the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, couldn't more Synod be a Morrison, when when someone asked him that tell me a deed by which I can enter Paradise. The Prophet sallallahu earlier was in upset can mercy not be a Morrison. So the man asked that, how do I know

00:11:30--> 00:12:19

whether I'm a Morrison or not whether I'm a good person or not? The Prophet sallallahu earlier said replied ask your neighbor, ask your neighbor, if your neighbor say that you are good, then you are good. And if they say that you are bad, then you are bad. So pound Allah, he see your neighbors, you don't necessarily interact with them a lot. But your your basic, you know habits like for example, are you noisy? Are you loud? How do you park your car? Where do you throw your garbage? Do you cut your grass or not? How is it that you walk outside Guinea these are behaviors because of which your neighbors can testify whether or not you're a good person. So when a person does it, son, then the

00:12:19--> 00:13:05

benefit is that they will enter Jannah and that we also learn in the Quran that in the right mattala heater Ebo mineral Morrison in that the mercy of Allah is near those who do your sun. So when a person does exam, they receive the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala they receive the help of Allah subhanaw taala we're in Allah lemma, ie more sinning Indeed Allah is with those who do ersan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that the most beloved of you, and the most closest of you to me on the day of judgment will be those who are Maha Sunoco icon, those whose Aflac whose manner whose behavior is the most excellent and we learn how Jessa will your son Ellen Pearson, is

00:13:05--> 00:13:16

there any reward for your son other than your son? And when a person does good, then you know at times you don't always see the result of you know, the good that you're doing.

00:13:17--> 00:14:09

Sometimes the good that you do to others is not necessarily reciprocated. You keep treating people good and they don't seem to acknowledge any of your goodness. So remember in the law hola you Leo a gentle merci Nene. Allah does not waste the reward of those who do good. So what I see no in Allah you hibel mercy Nene, do good because Allah loves those who do good. Then the verses the following verses are about Hajj in total Bukhara we have learned about laws pertaining to fasting evens a cat was mentioned earlier, lawful and unlawful foods. So we have been learning about various commands. Here. details related to hedge are given. A loss Pousada says what a team will have joella Murata

00:14:09--> 00:14:56

lilla and complete the Hajj and Umrah for Allah. Complete the Hajj and Umrah do Hajj and Umrah for whose sake for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and this shows us that Hajj is an obligation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have NASS and fuddled Allah who are la como hedger for hoodoo, that all people, Allah has obligated hedge on you. So do hedge, meaning hedges an obligation and it's an obligation to do hedge at least once in our lifetime. In another narration, we learn that there is no person except that he must do had jetan were O'Mara to a hedge and an aurora. And remember that hedge is an obligation that should be done as soon as possible, because we

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

don't know what might be coming up ahead in the future.

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

So as soon as a person is able to do Hajj as soon as they find the opportunity, they should go for it and not delay because we don't know how things may change. And here what is being emphasized is that do Hajj and aroma lilla meaning for the sake of Allah with sincerity, the thing is that Hajj is a very public act of worship. When you go for Hajj everybody finds out because you're traveling and when you are performing hajj, again, you are surrounded by so many people. So it is very easy for a person's intentions to get corrupted. And when it comes to hygiene aroma, either also very expensive being there require you to spend a whole lot of money. So there's a high chance of urge that a

00:15:46--> 00:16:31

person begins to feel, you know, very think very highly of themselves that you know what, I'm so wealthy, I have so much money, I can afford to go for Hajj, I can afford to go for Umrah and it's also you know, how does the deed that distinguishes an individual from the rest of the people, so that you know, people usually say that, you know, I have done Hajj, right or or so and so has done Hajj. So again, there's a chance that a person begins to feel proud or begins to boast. So it is made clear over here that perform hygiene aroma, but only for Allah lilla for the sake of Allah, when it comes to aroma, it is done over and over again. So So, again, there is a chance that a

00:16:31--> 00:17:23

person you know begins to feel proud and the intentions become corrupt. So, watch your intention, make it sincere, it should only be for the sake of Allah. So, a team will have Germanotta Lila complete had an aroma for the sake of Allah. And this means that once you begin a hedge or once you begin aroma, and of course that begins when a person enters the state of Iran, then only exit Iran once you have completed the HUD. Once you have completed the umbra, a timu meaning completed, don't leave it halfway. Don't change your mind, don't quit, follow through till the end and then completed meaning from the beginning of the deed until its completion, it should be for the sake of Allah, not

00:17:23--> 00:18:12

for some status, not you know for the praise of people or or you know for fame, no, do it, do it for the sake of Allah and also complete do it completely complete the Hajj, complete their Umbra, and do it properly. And then it is mentioned for in or slave to him from us they sort of mineral heavy, but if you are prevented, then offer what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals, while at the Hikaru SATCOM had Diablo had you mahila and do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place or time of slaughter. Now the thing is that things are not always in our control. At times a person's circumstances are, you know, beyond their control. So for example, a person sets

00:18:12--> 00:18:43

out on the journey of Hajj, they begin their own law, but then, because of certain conditions that are beyond their control, they're not able to continue with the hedge, they're not able to continue with their own, for example, travel restrictions, a person puts on, you know, the state of Iran. They enter the state of Iran, and they are just entering mcca and all of a sudden, nobody's allowed to enter mcca nobody's allowed to come and you know,

00:18:44--> 00:19:26

and enter the Masuda Haram. Or, for example, there's an accident, there's a health emergency and because of that, a person is no longer able to continue with their hedger Umrah. So, what to do in a situation like that. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam also experienced a situation like this, when the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sentiment the Muslims went for Umbra and the sixth year after ahijah. And they were right outside of Makkah, but the machine did not allow them to enter Makkah, they did not allow them to perform. So the Muslims basically had to return to Medina, without completing their own. so in this situation, what is supposed to be done? Here the

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

solution is given that if you are prevented, meaning from completing your Hajj completing your own, then offer what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals, meaning offer a sacrificial animal. And from Hades we learn this can be a camel, a cow, a sheep, whatever that is available to a person. And then once the animal is slaughtered, then a person can exit the state of Baja. And this is why the shaving of the heads is mentioned because for men This marks that

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

You know they have exited the state of Arizona, and there is an option to menial a person can shave the head or they can trim the hair of course for women it is trimming the hair. And once they offer the sacrifice, they trim the hair, then a person is no longer in a state of harm. And and they can carry on without completing the Hajj and Umrah from an CanAm income Maria, ob other middle C for Vidya to minsi Yamin, also the cotton our New Silk, and whoever among you is ill or has an ailment of the head must offer a ransom of fasting three days or charity or sacrifice. Now this is another scenario, completing the hygiene aroma means that a person performs all of the rituals properly,

00:20:48--> 00:21:34

that they must follow all of the rules. And a major part of the rules is the state of your home. Remember that when a person is going for hydro, they are in a state of harm, meaning that there's certain things which they're not allowed to do. For example, a person is not allowed to trim their nails or their hair. men cannot wear form fitting clothes tailored to fit garments, a person cannot wear perfume. So if a person ends up violating the hurom, out of necessity, because of an illness that is mentioned in the in this part of the if that if one of you is ill. So for example, a person has a foot injury, right? A man has a foot injury, they're in a state of Iran, and they fracture

00:21:34--> 00:22:22

their foot. And in that case, they have to wear a boot. Right? So that technically is not allowed for men in the feet must be exposed. Right? So in that situation, what should a person do? or other mirror see here, there's an element on the head, for example, there's a head injury, and then for stitches, the the hair on the head have to be you know, shaved off. So in that condition, any what what should a person do? Meaning where, where the restrictions of your harm are being violated out of necessity, right and intentionally, then the solution is given over here. How perfect How beautiful is our religion? What is that solution the solution is that a person can give a video and

00:22:22--> 00:23:09

that video this video is called Vidya to other and a person has a choice between three things fasting and from Hades we learn this is of three days or charity. From Hades we learn feeding six people in need or sacrifice of a sheep. We learned that carbon urjit on a deal on who he had an ailment in his head, his hair had to be shaved off. So the Prophet sallallahu already said and told him if you suck that, that shave your head and fast for three days or feed six people or slaughter a sheep. But remember that if a person ends up violating one of the one of the restrictions of Iran out of forgetfulness, or by accident, for example, a person out of habit you know they they

00:23:10--> 00:23:56

for example, trim their nail or or pluck out a hair then this is something that is pardoned. For either omentum from ultimate arbiter Illuminati el Hadji from a stay Sora meenal Howdy. And when you are secure, then whoever performs Urmila during the Hajj followed by Hajj offers what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. Now here Hajj the mutter is mentioned. Remember that there are three kinds of hedge there is hedge a flood, where a person puts on the home and just performs the rituals of hedge. Then the second type of hedge is hedge Pilon, where a person puts on the arm and performs Irma and hedge together. And the third type is hedge the matter where a person

00:23:56--> 00:24:47

puts on the harm does Emre then exits the state of Iran and then when it is time to begin rituals of hedge on the eighth of the hedger they put on Iran again. So in this kind of hedge, remember that offering the sacrificial animal is a must. And that is up to a person it can be a sheep goat, cow camel, one or more. And this sacrifice is of gratitude. But then it is mentioned that for millennia Jude Firstly, I was lsvt, a yam and Phil hedgy was subverting either Roger Martin de Carshalton Kameelah and whoever cannot find then a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned home. Those are 10 complete days. You see hatch the mutter is easier compared to hatch

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

pattern because in hydrocodone a person is constantly in a state of Islam, in which the matter you put on your hand for ombre, you do aroma. You take a break from your home and then you put on your home again for HUD. So you have a

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

You know, you have some time, some some freedom from the restrictions of Iran, and it is also more rewardable Why is it more rewardable because you get to perform both Urmila and Hajj in one trip. So if a person wants to perform Hajj the letter, but they're not able to offer a sacrificial animal, they don't have the money, then they don't need to feel bad. They don't need to be discouraged from performing hajj them adore. They have another option, and what is that option? They can fast? How many fasts a total of 10 fasts, and how will this be three fasts within the days of Hajj and seven fasts on returning home. And remember that these fasts do not have to be consecutive Valley Kalima

00:25:45--> 00:26:31

lemmya con Lu Khalid al Masjid al Haram. This is for those whose family is not in the area of unrest either how long what the Allah who are lemmo and Allah shadier carb and fear Allah and know that Allah is severe in penalty. So here we see that hatch, the mother is to be done by the non residents of Makkah, the residents of Makkah, do hedge a flood. So they don't need to offer a sacrificial animal along with their hedge, but the people who are coming from outside, they have the option of doing hedge the matter, or hedge bid on both options are available. And then at the end of the verse, a warning is given that fear Allah and you should know that Allah is severe in penalty, any

00:26:32--> 00:27:16

do not take these commands lightly, that if you feel like it fast, if you don't feel like you don't fast, no, follow these commands seriously, take every instruction carefully. Don't be casual about it, then it is mentioned ahead you Ashura. marylu, mad hedge is during well known months, we see that for certain acts of worship, timings have been specified, for example, the fast of Ramadan are supposed to be in the month of Ramadan, meaning a person does not have the choice that you know what I don't feel like fasting in the month of Ramadan this year because it's in the summer and the fasts are very long. And, you know, I just don't feel like it. I'm not in that spiritual state. So I'll do

00:27:16--> 00:28:01

it later. No, you can only delay the fasts when there's travel or there's illness, whether that illness is, you know, is that that is such that it could it's very serious, or it is such that it could it could get aggravated by fasting. So in that situation, of course, a person can delay fasting, but otherwise the fasting of Ramadan is supposed to be in Ramadan. Likewise, when it comes to Salah fudge, it has a time limit, it has a time. Also it has a time. And just like that, when it comes to hedge, there's a certain time and had you Ashura martlew Matt even remodel de la Mourinho said that the months of hedge are in our chawan, a little farther, and the 10 days of the hedger

00:28:02--> 00:28:47

meaning, this is the assura Omar lumad and even our bus on the long run who said that part of the Sunnah is that no one should go into Iran for Hajj, except during the months of Hajj. You see back in the day people have people would have to travel from far off places. So when they went for Hajj, they wouldn't just travel a week in advance. Sometimes they would have to leave their homes months in advance the journey would take very long. So here it is clarified. That no matter when you set out, you can only begin the the Iran for hedge in the months of hedge not before that fun photography hindle had Jeff Allah Rafa Wallah for suka willagee della Phil hedge so whoever has made

00:28:47--> 00:29:36

hedge obligatory upon himself there in there is no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. Meaning once a person enters the state of Iran, then there are certain restrictions. There's a code of conduct it's not just you know, a firearm is not just you know, white garments. It's not just you know, an R by n hijab. Iran is a state it's not just a dress. So what are the rules? The rules are lower officer level so called logy dolla will hedge, the first is loud office, there should be no office and the office is sexual relations between a husband and wife and even you know, something that leads to to sexual intercourse such as you know, kissing etc. So a

00:29:36--> 00:29:55

lot of us and then level sUq know sinning, meaning no breaking the restrictions of your home, no setting otherwise, but also when it comes to the restrictions of Islam. Yanni it's not allowed that a person violates them. What are those restrictions, for example, trimming the hair, wearing perfume,

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

hunting for men wearing you know tailor to

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

It clouds. So these restrictions cannot be violated unless a person must do so out of necessity. And that was discussed earlier, that if that must be done, then a person can give the, the video. And then the third is legendary. There is no fighting meaning no fighting is allowed during Hajj. And you see when there's so many people together in one place, and, you know, hedges such that you have to be at a certain place by a certain time to perform, you know, certain rituals, then, of course, there's a high chance that people get into, you know, fights, so no fighting is allowed. Whether it is over money, or fic because sometimes people say no, this is the right way. No, my way is the

00:30:48--> 00:31:35

right No, I heard this Hadees No, my teacher told me this. No fighting, no arguing. Sometimes people fight over, over chairs over seats over spots that this is my spot. Right? I came here first, over food and over things like why did you bump into me? So no pushing, no shoving, no disrespecting one another no doing anything that would lead to fighting and arguing. And if an argument does break out, then step away from it stop fighting because a lot of us are willful sukawati dalla Phil Hodge. Remember that the objective of Hajj is to show surrender and humility to Allah subhanaw taala. Hajj is about drawing close to Allah by doing good deeds. And by staying away from things that are lost

00:31:35--> 00:32:20

panadol does not approve off. So when a person avoids office for su jadad, they're observing a great deal of patience. And this is only possible when a person busies themselves with doing good deeds. You see a person who is focused on the rituals of Hajj, they will not get entangled in you know, fighting and arguing. And when a person is focused on doing good deeds during Hajj, you know, focused on the rituals of Hajj, then, then such a person, their hedge will be hedge mob rule, meaning a hedge that is filled with good deeds, which is one of the best deeds and it's also a source of forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that man had gelila he, whoever

00:32:20--> 00:33:13

does hedge for the sake of Allah philomela first Well, um, yep, so, and he does not engage in any office in any sexual relations with me. And he does not commit any sin, no violation than rajpura koyomi weleda to Omu he will return home. Like the day his mother gave birth to him, meaning he will be pure of sin forgiven. Just as he was pure of sin, the day that he was born. This is how a person will return home, meaning their record is now clean, they get a fresh start, and we learn another Hadees that Hajj is actually a follow Jihad right after the jihadi had Juma brew. It's a form of it's a form of jihad. It's a form of struggle and striving. Why because you are constantly

00:33:13--> 00:33:59

controlling yourself disciplining yourself. So this is not going to go in vain. This is something that is going to lead you to your success. One of the following in hiring yarlung, hula and whatever good you do, Allah knows it. So do the best that you can do closely. Follow the Sunnah. Do the rituals of Hajj to the best of your ability, perform worship in the best of places as much as possible, in the most excellent and most beautiful way possible. And notice how it is said men hiring men hiring means any good at all. So any good deed that you do during Hajj, Allah subhanaw taala knows it. So fill your time fill those moments of waiting with Victor with albia with the with

00:33:59--> 00:34:45

the recitation of the Quran of an and when you're surrounded by so many people use this as an opportunity to earn more good deeds be helpful. Not that you become selfish and only concerned about yourself. What does a wudu for in the Hi, Rosetta toccoa? What the Huni Yeah, only Al Bab and tape provisions. But indeed the best provision is the fear of Allah and fear me all you have understanding. So we see over here that when a person goes for hedge, they should take provision with them, both types of provision, the provision for the body and the provision for the soul. Because the hedge is not just a spiritual journey, your body goes along with you. It's also a

00:34:45--> 00:35:00

physical journey. And it's not just a physical journey, that you're supposed to go to certain places at certain times and do certain rituals. No, it's supposed to be all spiritual. You know? It This is a spiritual journey.

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Therefore be equipped. Now how is it that you take xad for the body and for the soul with you, we learned even our bustle of the Longhorn, who said that the people of Yemen would go for Hajj and not take any provision with them. And they would say that we are Mottola Kowloon, meaning we are those who rely on Allah, we go for Hajj. And when we are in Makkah, when we are in Mina, when we're doing our Hajj we rely completely on Allah, He will, you know, give us to eat, so on and so forth. So when they came to Makkah, what would they do, they would beg from people. So some some people do this, that when they go for HUD, they don't take enough supplies with them. And then they start begging

00:35:41--> 00:36:29

people. So this IO was revealed that with as a wudu, take provisions with you take your supplies, your means of transportation, money, things that you need. So why so that you can focus on everybody? And and you're not constantly worried about where am I going to get my next meal from? Where am I going to sleep? And you know, such things, take care of your physical needs go prepared and equipped, so that you can focus entirely on worship. And when it comes to spiritual provision that is mentioned over here, that the best provision that in the higher azada toccoa. Indeed, the best provision is the fear of Allah. take that with you. What does that mean? That be spiritually

00:36:29--> 00:37:11

prepared. You see, if a person is not used to praying Salah, they're not going to be praying 100 every day when they go for Hajj, if a person is not used to the recitation of the Quran, they're not going to be able to automate, you know, to automatically start reciting Quran every day for so many hours. If a person is not used to making liquid, they will not be able to make they could all of a sudden, during hedge, you have to have these habits from before develop these habits from before and then add hedge any one is that you are you know concerned about feeding your body. What was that my lunch? What is it that that I'm going to have for my lunch? But then the best provision that you

00:37:11--> 00:37:59

should be concerned about is the provision for the soul for the heart, which is the fear of Allah? And how is that you know, practiced? or What does it look like? It looks like the vicar endora that a person is, you know, using their tongue in remembering Allah, not in constantly chatting and talking with one another. It is in guarding the tongue, that a person is careful about what they're saying that a person observes silence. It is about guarding the eyes, not that even at hedge in Iran, people are checking one another out, no guarding the eyes, and then keeping oneself away from unnecessary things. And staying away from any argument and being the best and enjoying the

00:37:59--> 00:38:44

difficulties of hudge patiently being beneficial to others being considerate of others. All of this is part of the core, that it is mentioned lace rla congener Han and Tabitha who favela Mira become, there is no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord during Hajj, look at the practicality of this beautiful religion. You see everyone is not able to save a whole lot of money and use that at hedge some people need to make money along the way. So instead of begging work, and this can be in the form of trades, so you can bring your stuff with you to sell and earn money or it can also be in the form of working for some wages, whatever a person can do, and he This is permissible, but

00:38:44--> 00:39:34

making money during Hajj should not be the ultimate goal. The main goal should be to perform hajj and one of the side benefits, okay, you also earn an income and that is perfectly fine for either a full time in auto fatin fund karula her in the idle her arm, but when you depart from autofac then remember Allah at a machariel Haram. Remember that the rituals of Hajj begin on the eighth of the hedger. The Pilgrims enter one on the eighth of the hedgerow and they arrive in Minar. And on the ninth from Mina, the pilgrims go to arafa and they stay there for the entire day after sundown, the pilgrims leave for most Delica and spend the night there before returning to Mina in the morning. So

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

this has been mentioned over here that go to arafa and then return to Mina but on the way stop at a mush I will hold on and what is unmesh I know how long it is must deliver and what should you do over there? You should remember Allah over there. There is a particular background to these verses. You see the Quraysh they would consider themselves as homes. Homes, meaning extra conservative, very, very

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

Religious. And so during Hajj, what they would do is that they would restrict themselves to the region of the harem, meaning they would stay within the vicinity of the harem. And on offer, the plane of alpha is actually outside of the vicinity of the harem. So what would the Quraysh do, they would actually not go to our offer, they would just stop at Mr. leafa, and not go to our offer. So it is made clear over here that the stop at was delaford comes after an offer first to go to an offer. And then you come to Metallica. And then you go back to Mina. So remember that hedge is not about, you know, following your desires. It's not about doing what you what you wish, doing what you

00:40:46--> 00:41:28

please hedge is all about doing things the way that Allah subhanaw taala wants you do and when and where Allah subhanaw taala wants you to do it. You know, it's amazing. You stayed off for the entire day. And as soon as it is motive, then instead of praying, Margaret, what you do is that you set out for Metallica, you go to Amazon, if you actually pray a moment of inertia together when you reach was that. And it's really shocking at that time, because it's mohareb time, we're supposed to be praying Mahadev we're all Muslims over here. You know, we have access to water, we're able to pray. But no, that is not when you pray, because the Prophet sallallahu early Islam showed us that on the

00:41:28--> 00:42:13

day of that after alpha macgibbon urrutia they're supposed to be performed at Mozilla. So it's made clear over here that had just not about what you feel like it's all about surrender. It's all about submitting to Allah subhanaw taala. And remember that standing at alpha is, is the main ritual of hedge is one of the pillars of hedge, meaning of a person does not end up going to alpha, then their hedges invalid. Their hedges incomplete. It's it doesn't count. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the virtues of standing and offer. We learned that this is the day when people are released from the fire of hell. It's a day of forgiveness. It's a day of earning a loss of penalties

00:42:13--> 00:42:56

approval, the draws of the pilgrims are accepted. And the best they could for that day is La ilaha illAllah who is the hula Shree color, the whole milk hula hula Hamza, who are luckily Shay encoded. And then, after all of the pilgrims make their way to was deliver. And then they promoted buneary show over there, the rest in the night. And after budget, we see to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam remain standing until the sun had fully risen. And he was constantly remembering Allah. And then he set out for Mina. It is mentioned with guru who kemah had come and remember him as he has guided you. Worship Allah subhanaw taala the way that Allah has commanded, not according to your wishes and

00:42:56--> 00:43:42

desires, were in control Min cubberly he lemina Berlin, for indeed you were before that among those astray, meaning without knowledge of what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you are in error. So if you want to be on guidance, then you have to do what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded. Some of you lumen hifu Fl blindness was still federal law in the love of food over ham, then depart from the place from where all the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. This The same thing is being clarified over here that depart from where people depart. Meaning they'll punish everybody, every single pilgrim every individual who wants their hedge to be

00:43:42--> 00:44:30

valid, they have to go all the way to our office, and then from out of day depart, they go back with the rest of the people stopping at Musleh leafa and then returning to Mina for either Kobe to Munna, seeker, calm, fat Guru mohaka victory calm Abba, accom Asha decra. And when you have completed your rights, meaning you have fulfilled all of the rituals, then remember Allah like your previous remembrance of your father's or with much greater remembrance. So, on return to Mina, on the 10th of the ledger, we see that there are a few more rituals to perform. And there is a there is a very good acronym for it, unhealth and what does that mean run health, Ra meaning Rami, the stoning then, noon

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

meaning no sacrifice, then how meaning help trimming or shaving the head and then thought meaning throw off the bow often sorry. So these are four rituals that are supposed to be performed on returning to Mina. So it is mentioned over here that when you have completed your rituals, you have done the Ramy, you have done the sacrifice. You have trimmed or shave the head and you have done the toe off, then what should you do then?

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

start remembering alone. Don't start partying and you know chatting and and just you know spending your time just socializing. No first cotulla make the dhikr of Allah can Vickery come Abba, can you see the machine, what they will do is that they would at this time of Hajj they would, you know, have

00:45:21--> 00:46:14

basically what you could call a poetry competition, right where, where they would where the best poets would come, and the best poets would be, you know, rewarded, and especially what people admired was the mention of forefathers, the praise of forefathers. So, Allah subhanaw taala redirects the believers that fund cotulla This is a time of remembering Allah. Don't start boasting about your background, your lineage, your country, know this hedge is about worshipping Allah, not your ego, for good Allah Cataclysm, Abba, como Usha decra. So, now on the 11th, until the 13th, the pilgrims stay in Minar. And in these days, what are we supposed to do? Make the vicar of Allah both

00:46:14--> 00:47:01

in the form of rituals, and also in the form of a car? So the specific rituals of these days, and then in general could be rod Dora's any This is what you should be doing. feminine nassima Nicola robina Tina Fey dounia Ramallah who Phil Hirata Minh Hala. And among the people is He Who says our Lord give us in the world and he will have in the hereafter no share. meaning there's some people who pray only for dunya is praying for dunya for worldly things, something bad, not at all. It's not bad, but praying only for worldly things. This is where the problem is. Why? Because when a person is only focused on the world and its things, then this is something that causes the heart to be

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

deviated. We learned that once the companions were talking about poverty, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by the one in whose hand is my soul, the delights and luxuries of this world will come to you in plenty. And nothing will cause the heart of any one of you to deviate except that meaning worldly things can be a means of deviation for a person. So don't make worldly things your ultimate goal. And when a person is only focused on the matters of this world, on you know on increasing in, you know, on gaining more and more dunya the last panel Tara says about people who prefer worldly life over the Hereafter, that those are the people whose hearts Allah has sealed and

00:47:49--> 00:48:32

their hearing and their vision. Such people are negligent, meaning they're not able to truly benefit from their you know from the faculties that our last panel Tara has given them. And when a person only focuses on worldly things, they increase in their poverty in their constriction in their worries, and it will also cause a person to suffer loss in the hereafter. Woman Khomeini akula robina Tina for dunya has center wurfl irati has center working are either banal, 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. Some people make such laws they pray for good

00:48:32--> 00:49:18

in the world. And this includes all things that people consider to be good happiness, ample lawful sustenance, righteous spouse, righteous children, good family, beneficial knowledge, righteous deeds, health, prosperity, so it's perfectly fine to pray for such things, and also good in the hereafter. What is good in the hereafter protection and safety from the trials of the grave of the of hasher seeking or loss pousadas approval, narrowness seeing Allah de Natal for those so ask for dunya and ask for a hero and ask Allah subhanaw taala to save you from the punishment of health. And assadullah annual reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this there are the most

00:49:18--> 00:49:57

any this was the most frequent draw that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam made and even honestly Allah Mourinho whenever he intended to make draw, this is that there are that he would make, and if he ever made a longer than he would always include this in his garage, meaning this this was always a part of his dog. We learned that some people had come from bustle and they requested an S for the Longhorn, who to make Dora. So he made this door they said make more door. So he said in ot to Heather fekadu t to higher dunya will appear. If you are given this any what you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for in this dog then you are given the good of the world and the hereafter meaning

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

what more do you want and this is the author

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

We should be making even in tawaf, as was the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So those who remember Allah during Hajj, not just dunya those who ask Allah for good in the world and good in the Hereafter, not just good in the world, they are they also want good in the hereafter. Then such people, Allah says Allah ecola homeless laywoman Makka Sabu wala who said he or he sab, those will have a share of what they have earned and Allah is swift in account. Meaning for them is a share of what they have earned, meaning the believers such people will have good in this life and they will have good in the next life. This is Allah soprano todos promise. Allah Subhana Allah says

00:50:46--> 00:51:32

in the Quran, Lila Dena Sanofi had the dunya Hassan one Adele will appear to hide that for those who do good in this life is good for them. And the home of the Hereafter is better. In another place sweeter mana Amina Santee Hammond Becker in our own sir wha hoo. Menon fellow nahi and no higher Tompa Yuba that whoever does righteous deeds while they're a believer, whether male or female, then they then they will have a good life and a lost parent or other will give them an excellent reward because of what they have been doing. And ally swift and account meaning don't think that the hour is far. And once the hisab begins, then it will it will be over very quickly. Because it doesn't

00:51:32--> 00:52:18

take long for Allah subhanaw taala to hold people accountable with cotulla huffy a yam and Mar do that. And remember Allah during specific numbered days, this is referring to am with the [???]ty, which are the 11th 12th and 13th of the ledger, when the pilgrims are supposed to be in Mina, and they're supposed to perform certain rituals, you know, Ramy, tawaf offering the sacrifice, shaving of the head or trimming of the hair. So what could Allah Fie, a yummy Mara do that any, these are the days of liquid, and viken includes all types of worship. It of course, includes the specific acts of worship which are required in these days, but in general, that could be Roth, Salah, and

00:52:18--> 00:53:06

other good deeds. And remember that the rituals of Hajj are actually for the sake of remembering Allah, meaning, these are not just empty rituals, you know, just outward activities that we have to perform. No, these rituals are established for the purpose of remembering Allah subhanaw taala. And we learn that these days are supposed to be the days of remembering Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a yarmulke should evoke, that the days of the shriek are the days of eating and drinking and remembering Allah. And this is why you need the pilgrims are supposed to be, you know, focused on saying that we rot in these days, not just the pilgrims, but also non pilgrims.

00:53:06--> 00:53:54

And we see that even women may not belong more on her, she would say that there could be rot on these days and the women would say that we rot behind a band even earthman radula horn hoon. And we see that people would say that we rot even in the in the masjid. So this is any in obedience to the command of Allah that what could Allah Fie a Jamar do that keep the remembrance of Allah alive, glorify, magnify Allah, in these days, from untarred jealousy yo maney Fela, ismar la woman ahora Fela ismar la lemony Taka, then whoever hastens his departure in two days, there is no sin upon him, and whoever delays until the third, there is no sin upon him, for him who fears Allah. So, we see

00:53:54--> 00:53:58

that during the yamabushi when the pilgrims are in Mina,

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

when the pilgrims are in Mina, then a person has you know, the option of either staying in in Mina until the 13th or they can leave earlier on the 12th How does that work? What happens is that a person is you know, this option is there, but it is mentioned is clarified over here and eliminate DACA meaning only for those who have the color of Allah who observed these rituals with the fear of Allah. So, remember that in some matters of Hajj, there is any a lot of room and accommodation, right? That, that we see that certain rituals are a must without which Hajj is not complete. Other rituals are such that they're necessary, but if a person misses them, then no harm and other rituals

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

are, you know, optional. So for example here, a person can stay until the 13th or they can leave on the

00:55:00--> 00:55:51

12th but the main thing is whatever you're doing, do it with the fear of Allah zoa Jen, don't spend your time arguing and and quibbling and proving that you are right and you're the best. Rather observe the core. Whatever you do, do it with the fear of Allah, not with pride. Don't be little people with the color who are alemu and comme la Ito, Sharon, and fear Allah, and you should know that to him, you will be gathered. And you see this is one of the main lessons of hedge hedges a great gathering. People have come from so many different places, you see crowds and crowds of people and you're being driven in crowds from one place to another and you are expressing absolute humility

00:55:51--> 00:56:09

before Allah, your neediness before Allah, your wealth and status does not distinguish you from the person who is standing next to you from the people that are around you. And this is exactly the state of people on the Day of Judgment. So what the cola hawara lemmo, an accumulator Sharon.

00:56:11--> 00:56:45

Now after the verses of hedge, another very important matter is mentioned Allah Subhana Allah says women in nassima, your dupo kokkola will feel higher to dunya why you should Allah Allah Murphy Colby wahoo, Allah doofy Psalm, and of the people is He Who speech pleases you in worldly life. And he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart, yet he is the fiercest of opponents. You see, Allah subhanaw taala commands us to do the to talk about him. And

00:56:46--> 00:57:38

you've talked about him mentioned him better than we talk about the creation, meaning our speech, our conversations should reflect the fact that we remember Allah. But some people their talk is such that it is outwardly Yes, it's very impressive, but only by worldly standards. And it will only be impressive in this world. In the hereafter it will have no worth. Why, because it is useless before Allah subhanaw taala. Why, because it is void of sincerity, of honesty of Allah's remembrance, it is not true. And we learn about the hypocrites a loss. Pousada says we're either at home, or judoka Sam, boom, we're in your kulu de smartlipo li him that if you were to see them, their body would

00:57:38--> 00:58:22

really impress you meaning physically the way they look after themselves, the way they are dressed up. Very impressive. And if they were to talk, you would actually listen, meaning their speeches very impressive. And then also ultra mention over here, that this person swears all odds by Allah to assure others, that what he's saying is true. While it is not. Or, you know, to assure others that he is honest, what he's saying is from the heart that he is sincere, while in fact he's not sincere. So how do you recognize this dishonesty, the behavior, well, who are allowed to disarm, he is actually the fiercest of opponents, meaning you don't want to argue with him. Why? Because if you

00:58:22--> 00:59:12

get tangled in argument with this person, you will never stop arguing, he will use any measure to defeat you to win the argument and will oppose you fiercely without any care for your feelings, your well being your reputation, any he will become abusive, rude, harsh and violent in argument. So you don't want to be in any disagreement with this person. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm explained that alborada will biannual shorba tournament and the fact that Alba that vulgar speech and also eloquent speech are two branches of hypocrisy, meaning, this doesn't mean that every eloquent speech is hypocritical, but rather what is meant is that some people any they will use very

00:59:12--> 01:00:00

impressive words, very, you know, flowery language, very, you know, sweet talk, and, and a lot of talk that captivates people. And when the words are very eloquent, but the actions are hollow, actions are hollow. And some have said that LBL over here means excessive talk, meaning a hypocrite goes on talking, talking, talking, not giving other people a chance to speak. And this is a big problem. You see, a conversation is supposed to be two sided, in which you listen, and you talk. And if you're the only one who's talking and you're not giving the other person a chance to speak, then you're not having a conversation. You're giving a lecture. If you're really passionate about you

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

know certain concepts you really want to talk about them then go write about it or go go become an expert in it so that you can actually give a lecture about it. Any a conversation is supposed to be two sided. So here my your jubu kokkola who will hire to dunya in this person goes on talking and talking you speech is very impressive, but the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and warned us he said in our format haha for Allah Almighty Allah Muna Filipina alima. Listen, what I fear the most from my oma is every monastic every hypocrite, who is very, who knows how to talk? Who is very good at talking. So, remember that the words of a person, don't make him sweet talk does not reflect who a

01:00:50--> 01:01:36

person truly is. What is it that reflects a person's reality? It is their behavior, it is how they interact with others. So it is mentioned over here wahoo Allah del Hassan, he is the most fiercest of opponents. So every person needs to check themselves, then what happens to me? What kind of a person am I in an argument, when there is a dispute? When I don't see eye to eye with another person, that when people engage with me, then my words are not enough to show them who I really am. So for example, if a person just you know, says to their spouse 100 times even that I love you, I love you, I care about you. And you know, you you matter a lot to me, but the moment they're

01:01:36--> 01:02:19

triggered by something, they explode in their rage than they've they've lost the plot. Any their words are useless. So here, the character that has been described is wahoo ulladulla, Islam, fiercest most stubborn of all disputants any people who fight with all their might, not giving up overreacting. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said him said the most despicable amongst people in the sight of Allah is the ruthless, argumentative person, and he doesn't care about others. He's only concerned about winning. He also said that if anyone disputes knowingly about something which is false, he remains in the displeasure of Allah until he resists, because sometimes, a person realizes

01:02:19--> 01:03:08

that I am wrong, but they still argue why, because of their ego, that I don't want to come across as someone who is wrong. So they keep defending themselves, even though they're wrong. And, and such a person remains in the anger of Allah until they desist from from what they were defending. What either tawanda saw Phil early leave, see the fee here, where you really can help with our Nestle. And when he goes away, he's tribes throughout the land to cause corruption. They're in and destroy crops and animals, stuff that Allah, any in anger, this person becomes so vengeful, so lowly, that they rush to destroy and ruin things. They don't care how valuable certain things may be, that it

01:03:08--> 01:03:52

could be the fruit of someone's effort. They don't care about it, your local health, our nursing, you see health crop, it takes time for crop to grow. Animals also you need this as property, but they don't care about it. And we see that sometimes enrage people do the most absurd things. They go drive in such a way that they end up crashing cars, and they start breaking things. They make impulsive decisions, they destroy property, sometimes this leads to murder, any such lowly things people do when they are in rage, will law who lay you hibel facade and Allah does not like corruption. What is facade, facade is when something is no longer within the limits of moderation.

01:03:53--> 01:04:35

Meaning, if something has gone bad, it has become corrupt. It has become spoiled, whether it is a little or a lot. And remember the corruption can be in relationships, it can be in property, it can be at home, it can be in the environment, it can be, you know at a small or large scale. And a Lost Planet. Allah has forbidden facade Allah does not like it as we learn over here will love Allah your herbal facade. And remember that the greatest form of corruption is actually disbelief and then committing sin, because that causes the earth to go bad and searching for people's sins and faults. This also leads to corruption. Because when you are constantly focused on the faults of people, then

01:04:35--> 01:04:59

people get worse. And then cheating betrayal severing ties of kinship. These are all forms of facade, wastefulness greed, this is also a form of corruption and facade. Look at what's happening to the earth because of our greed. Because of our wasteful behaviors. How many animals are going extinct? Any there's no place on earth except that it is covered in garbage. Even the

01:05:00--> 01:05:51

oceans in the sea life. So, so much is is getting affected because of our greed, our overconsumption our our wastefulness it's wreaking havoc. Well now who lay your head will facade we're either peeling the hood tequila a horror thriller is to be isn't for Hasbro who jahannam well a bit sell me hard. And when it is said to him fear Allah, pride in the sin takes hold of him, meaning he gets worse. So, for Hasbro who jahannam sufficient for him as hell, whenever you sell me had and how wretched is the resting place a stuff that Ulla anyone this person is advised against corrupt behavior. You know what this was not okay. These you know you your actions contradict your behavior,

01:05:52--> 01:06:45

or your actions have very have extremely negative consequences, then what happens, his ego kicks in. So he gets worse, he gets even more angry, he gets even more reactionary, even more vengeful. So it's almost better to not advise such a person because advising him is like poking a bear. So a harder to learn is to be listen. And then he's he's proud of the sin that that he's been committing so he goes on defending it for hustle jahannam so for such an arrogant, destructive person, Hell is sufficient. And hell will it be sell me hard? What a wretched resting place it is. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed a bobble kalami illa Allah the worst speech in the

01:06:45--> 01:07:33

sight of Allah is that a person is told it the killer fear Allah and he says I lay kerbin of sick Mind your own business. And he This is the worst speech that someone advises you fear Allah and you say to them Mind your own business. Sometimes when people are not even, you know, in the right place to advise you, right or what they're advising you with is is not correct, right? You have you have a different understanding. Even then do not say Mind your own business. Right? Always say okay, okay, inshallah, and and just acknowledge it and move on. You don't have to agree with everything. But you also don't have to reject that. The advice that you should fear Allah, all of us need to fear Allah,

01:07:33--> 01:08:18

all of us need to increase in our fear of Allah. Now in contrast, it is mentioned wamena nassima. Yesterday enough Silva de la mer la Tila will la hora often very bad. And other people is He who sells himself seeking means to the approval of Allah and Allah is kind to his servants. This idea is about so haber Rumi rhodiola Mourinho. You see, when he was migrating from Mecca, the machine stopped him, they wouldn't let him go. And they said that the only way we will let you go is if you leave all of your property, all of your wealth here in Makkah, so what happened, he agreed, he literally left all of his property in Makkah and made his way to Medina. And this is the price

01:08:18--> 01:09:10

basically which he had to pay to make the hedra giving up his life's income, his hard earned money. You see your self worth is deeply connected with your accomplishments, your money, but so haber Rumi did not mind giving that up for the sake of Allah. So, we need to ask ourselves that what is it that I am aspiring towards? What is my dream goal? What is it that I feel that if I have it, then yes, I am successful? Yes, I have accomplished something. Is it my net worth? Is it a certain amount of money? Is it a certain degree? Is it a certain title? For so haber Rumi rhodiola Horan, who His goal was Mandala Tila, the approval, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. You see when a person strives

01:09:10--> 01:09:59

to please Allah, then Allah calls gibreel and Allah tells gibreel that such and such servant of mine is seeking my approval. Allah were in the rajmata I lay my mercy is on him, May my mercy be on him and gibreel says that May Allah's mercy be on so and so. And the carriers of the throne, say the same, the angels around them also say the same. So what so we should also make our goal, our ultimate dream goal that I want to seek the approval of my Lord. And then ask yourself, What am I willing to give up for that? What am I willing to invest in that? How hard Am I willing to try to work

01:10:00--> 01:10:16

In order to earn my lords approval, and what are some ways through which we can seek the approval of Allah? First of all, this means that whenever we do any good deed we do we do it for the sake of pleasing Allah. In the Quran

01:10:17--> 01:11:03

different good deeds are mentioned it's an insult to Nyssa I 114 man, Amara bisaya cotton Omar roofing Oh is la henbane Alas, that someone is advising people, you know, advising them to spend in the way of Allah to do good or to mend their relationships. So whoever does that AB de la umodel bartylla whoever does that to seek the pleasure of Allah than such a person will be given a huge reward when it comes to spending in the way of Allah that should also be able to la mar la Tila, when it comes to seeking the approval of the approval of Allah. This is not just an empty wish. This needs to be practiced. How? By doing things that Allah subhanaw taala loves. We learn in a Hadees

01:11:03--> 01:11:50

woman Shay, in a humble in Allah human hand. There is nothing more beloved to Allah than praise. So ask yourself, how frequently How often do you praise Allah? Do you say Alhamdulillah? And then we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the most beloved of servants to Allah are those who are most beneficial to their families. How resourceful how beneficial, how useful are we towards the people that we live with? Or are we just demanding from them? And we learned that the best of deeds near Allah, the deeds which allow us pounds, our loves most our deeds which are consistent, even if they may be small, meaning even if they're not really big deeds, but they are, but they're

01:11:50--> 01:12:38

consistent, Allah subhanaw taala will love them. Then it is said yeah, you Hello, Dina amanu although Hello facil me Kapha all you will have believed enter into Islam completely. Meaning bring all of yourself into Islam. Don't just be Islamic when it comes to Salah. Or, you know when the event is being made, that you cover your head at that time, or just when you go for Hajj or Umrah or just in the month of Ramadan or in the hedger don't bring Islam only you know on your head or just on your tongue but on all of yourself. Enter into Islam completely. Meaning be obedient to Allah to the best of your ability. Do not pick and choose like the bunny is not yielded the Prophet

01:12:38--> 01:13:25

sallallahu Urdu said I'm sad that the believer is like a camel that has that is tamed so any direction that the camel is taken in the camel yields any it doesn't become stubborn. So although Hello physical me calf, enter into Islam completely, entirely, not one foot in one foot out, but entirely. So don't just be you know, don't just think that praying Salah is enough. And then you can do whatever you want. You can say whatever you want, you can use whatever language you want know, fully completely in all of your life every aspect of your life while at the tiberiu hot water shaitan innner hola como como bien, and do not follow the footsteps of shaitan. Indeed, he is to use

01:13:25--> 01:14:14

a clear enemy, the footsteps of shaitan are basically the way of shaitan right, the things that shaitan does, and the things that shape on tells us to do. So do not go on shaitan zwei do not follow him. Why? Because he will only tell you to do what is wrong, what is sinful. So whether it is in the matter of marriage, your income, the food you eat, or any matter of your life, follow the commands of Allah subhanaw taala not the way of shaitan what is shaitan? there to do shaitan is constantly trying to lead people away from the straight path. And if you follow your enemy, you see what is mentioned over here he is to you a clear enemy. If you follow your enemy, meaning you do

01:14:14--> 01:14:59

what your enemy tells you to do, do you think you will be you will benefit? No, your enemy is only going to want to trap you. Your enemy is only going to want to take you towards ruin towards destruction. So don't be naive. So here it's made very clear that one is the path of Allah and the other is a path of shaitan. So if you want to be successful, go on the path of Allah will the Hulu facility Kapha for Inzerillo to mimbar the Madhya at como beigene at farla more anila her Aziz and Hakeem but if you deviate after clear proofs have come to you then know that Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. This is a warning for those who continue to disobey Allah.

Hi Leon Luna Illa Tirumala houfy Luna liminal Hama? Well, Mila Aika will call the um, do they await but that Allah should come to them in covers of clouds and the angels as well. And the matter is then decided, when is this going to happen? This is going to happen on the Day of Judgment. So what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for the day of judgment to happen so that you can surrender to Allah? You see, one of the ways in which I plan misleads us is through procrastination. That it's okay. You know what you have time? Don't don't, you know, worry about what you've missed today. It's okay. Maybe tomorrow, right? You missed your Salah today. You know, tomorrow, start praying every

01:15:44--> 01:16:29

single prayer next week. You'll be good. Right? Next Ramadan, excellent Ramadan, just after Hajj, everything will be good. But then what happens? A person keeps delaying and delaying and delaying. And, and this is a trick of shaitaan that he makes us procrastinate. He makes us lazy. He tells us that you know what, you're too young. Right? You're too young. You still have time. You know, after your teenage years you can do this after you're in your 30s you know, once you're in your 30s then you can do this once you hit 40 then you can do this. And the next thing you know it's too late. So don't delay because you don't know when will be your last breath. What Allah He told you more and to

01:16:29--> 01:17:15

Allah all matters are returned. Son Bunny is la isla come at a now home in 18 by Hina. Asked the children of Israel he how many assign of evidence we have given them? Meaning what is the matter?

But he is right you were given many signs this or the water split in half. Yet, when they saw people worshipping idols, they wanted to worship an idol and they actually made that calf which they worshiped soprano Allah. So it's not that Islam is unclear. It's very, very clear. The commands are very clear. Now the ball is in your court. You have

01:17:15--> 01:17:59

to surrender to Allah and start obeying. When may you but delaire mattala HeMan bardi majra a two for him. The law has shown either a cop and whoever exchanges the favor of Allah for disbelief after it has come to Him, then Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty. You see near McCullough is mentioned over here, Islam is a blessing. And Allah subhanaw taala has given many worldly blessings and gratitude for worldly blessings is expressed by obeying Allah soprano Tada. So if a person does not show gratitude, what are they doing? They're basically giving up the blessings of Allah. They're exchanging them for loss. Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you. Don't you want your blessings to

01:17:59--> 01:18:48

continue? Don't you want good things forever? How can you have them forever buying obeying Allah now by thanking Allah now? Xena li larina kuffaar will hire to dunya Where's Harun? Amina levina Avenue beautified for those who disbelieve is the life of this world and they ridicule those who believe. Now this is one reason that prevents those who believe from entering into Islam completely FOMO fear of missing out that you know what this world is, is so glittery is so much fun if I, if I leave this, or if I start doing this if I if I start, you know, a practicing Islam that I'm going to miss out, right? And then there's this other fear that people will laugh at me, my worth will reduce. So

01:18:48--> 01:19:32

yes, this is being acknowledged over here, that those who think this life is everything, then they mark at those who don't make this life. They're everything who prepare for what is coming, that are you crazy, it's so hot and you're covered, that what's wrong with you, you're not eating, you're fasting, that you're spending so much of your savings on pilgrimage, that you're still renting, you're not taking such a loan that will you know, allow you to purchase something big, even though you have to pay interest, any you see the standards are different. One person's goal is the home of the hereafter. another person's goal is immediate enjoyment. So a person whose goal is the home of

01:19:32--> 01:19:59

the hereafter. They are any disciplining themselves right now. And that might seem like a bad choice to people who believe that this world is everything. So it is clarified here that one levina taco phoca homeo melki Yama, Willa, who yoto zuku Maja Shah will be lady Hey sab, but those who fear Allah are above them on the Day of Resurrection, and Allah gives provision to whom He wills without a

01:20:00--> 01:20:50

Count, being this world is not going to last forever. It's good things will not remain. So where do you want to be? forever? What is it that you want for eternity is adjust. If your goal is worldly life, then you're going to miss out on the rewards of the hereafter. And if your goal is eternal success, then you have to work on that right now. You see, worldly glitters are only a trial and worldly enjoyment is such that no matter how much it is, it is little. It is less. Why? Because it is limited. It's going to run out. So a believer should remember that a dunya schedule movement that the world is a prison for the believer and in a prison you cannot do everything that you feel like

01:20:50--> 01:21:41

you have a lot of restrictions. What genital Cafayate but the world is also a garden for the one who doesn't believe why because for him, this is everything so he lives freely. But remember that well Allahu Yasuko Masha will be Lady hisab. It is Allah who provides whomever He wills without any account. So remember that all provision is in Allah's hand. He is the he is the provider in the law who was up he is the ultimate provider. So get in the good side of the giver. If you want this world and in the hereafter Remember, it is only Allah who can give you so don't disobey Him in order to earn in order to acquire provision that is mentioned canon NASA oma tanwar Haider. Mankind was of

01:21:41--> 01:22:25

one religion forbartha Laguna beginner mobis schettino Amman zerene then Allah sent the prophets as Bringers of good tidings and as Warner's. So at the beginning, all people were Muslim, no problem. Everything was clear, because who were people, children of Adam already has set up, Adam already has set up, and he taught them who you are, what we were supposed to be doing, what our purpose of life is. And then what happened eventually shaitan You know, he led people astray. So by the time of no Halle center, people were worshipping idols. So in order to redirect people, Allah subhanaw taala sent prophets were unzila Mara, who will Kitab will help. Leah Kuma been a nasty female, Allah

01:22:25--> 01:23:09

foofy. And he said, and sat down with them the scripture in truth, to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. So along with the prophets, scripture was sent so that people have solid evidence, solid knowledge and their disputes can be, can be resolved, one often have a fee in the Latina or to remember the major a tool by Hina to Bali and buying a home. And none differed over the scripture except those who were given it after the clear proofs came to them. Why, out of jealous animosity among themselves, any the scripture was sent was revealed the Prophet was sent. Why? To resolve the differences between people. But what happened? Those who had jealousy had

01:23:09--> 01:23:53

animosity in their hearts. What did they do? They refuse to accept the truth, even when the truth was evident to them. Why did people disbelieve in rissalah? His center was his truth, not clear. It was very obvious. It was their jealous animosity. They did not like him. They did not like what he preached. And then why did people reject Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Did they not recognize as truth? Absolutely they did. It was their pride, it was their ego. So the reason why there are so many differences between people who believe in one God, meaning in, in modern in monotheistic religions, what why, why so many different groups? It's not because Allah said

01:23:53--> 01:24:41

different versions of the truth. No, the truth has been the same from day one, that all people should worship only Allah. One God, that's it. And the truth has been clear. So it's people who in their jealousy in their in their arrogance, they have rejected prophets, certain prophets, that they have rejected certain scriptures, and they have clung to their, you know, to their old ways, and not wanting to change themselves. They change the Scripture. So what happened for her the low levina Manu, Lima tala, foofy, human and happy evening. So Allah guided those who believe to the truth concerning that over which they had differed by his permission, Allahu Akbar, that even though so

01:24:41--> 01:24:59

much difference exists in the world, Allah subhanaw taala has always guided the people who seek the truth to the truth. What happened with Solomon and Pharisees or below Mourinho? Where was he and what a long journey he took, but he found the truth, Allah subhanaw taala

01:25:00--> 01:25:44

To lead him to the truth, well Lahiya Hindi, Maya Chateau de la Seraphin musta came and Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path. And this reminds us that we should keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, because no one is guided unless Allah guides them and has a bottom and tada Hello Janata. Well Am I taking methadone larina Holloman Kublai Khan, or do you think that you will enter paradise? While such trial has not yet come to you, as came to those who passed on before you? You see, living as a Muslim is not always easy. There are tests and trials of different kinds for the Muslims in Medina, there were social pressures, there were financial constraints, there was fear

01:25:44--> 01:26:31

there was public defamation, and things didn't get to get you know, this things didn't seem to get any easier. So the believers are being consoled over here. and by extension, any person who experiences hardship in the path of Islam is being consoled that did you think that you are going to enter Jannah just like that. And this is a reminder, the difficulties are part of the package. So don't have self doubt. We see that entry into paradise is only after striving, a loss pantherella tells us and sort of earlier and Ryan io 142 has a bottom antenna Hello Jen Neto, alum iarla Mila, who larina jaha domain comm where animal sabreen do you think you're going to enter Jannah just like

that, while Allah subhanaw taala has not yet revealed those who strive those who are patient.

01:26:38--> 01:27:19

And remember that the believer is constantly tested throughout throughout their life. And we learned the hubbub and hubbub rhodiola horn who he said that we complain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah. The Prophet salallahu Urdu Sanam was sitting in the shade of the Kaaba. And we said to him, that Are you not going to seek help for us? Are you not going to pray to Allah for us? meaning we're going through so much difficulty day after day and difficulties were not just in Medina they were even more difficult in Makkah because kebab rhodiola horn who asked the Prophet sallallahu, early cinnamon mcca that are you not going to make girl for us any well are these

01:27:19--> 01:28:02

difficulties going to become easy? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said among the nations before you believe in man would be put in a ditch that was dug for him, and a saw would be put over his head, and he would be cut into two pieces, yet that torture would not make him give up his religion. And the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Sena mentioned other trials that the people before us experienced. Now this doesn't mean that we ask for tribulation, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for wellbeing for safety. But if ever we face any trial in the way of Islam, whether it is some financial loss, or you feel like you cannot enjoy as much as others are enjoying, you are missing

Anyway, they started wondering, this started asking, when is it coming? They they, you know, they were not despairing, not at all. But patience was becoming hard upon them. The the trials were bit were intensifying. So Allah in UNASUR, Allah He corrib unquestionably the help of Allah is near. So remember this, as as a trial intensifies, as a difficulty becomes harder than the help and relief from Allah is also closer. It is nearer. And remember that with every difficulty, there is double E's enamal rowsley usara. Right

01:29:46--> 01:29:59

for enamal aerocity you saw in numerous videos, so don't despair. Yes. an owner kamada Yun, Phil Kuhn. They ask you what they should spend the Sahaba asked the Prophet sallallahu Urdu, some about what they

01:30:00--> 01:30:45

should spend how where where they should give their money. And this is about voluntary charity. This is not about zakat. So the response has given Colmar and factum in hiring follow validation will occur been while he uttama will Misaki Wabi Sabi, say whatever you spend of good is to be for parents and other relatives and orphans, and the needy and the traveler, you see over here when it comes to voluntary charity, who is supposed to be the first recipient? Why do they train parents, because remember, out of all people, it is our parents that deserve good treatment from us best treatment from us. And when when it comes to spending money, in order to earn Allah subhanaw taala

01:30:45--> 01:31:32

his approval, then again, we begin by spending on our parents, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned that the hand of the giver is higher, meaning that the hand of the person who is giving is higher than the hand of the person who is receiving, and he said, what the B mentor rulu begin with, with those who are closest to you. olmeca What about your mother and your father, and then he mentioned other relatives. So first is who your mother, then your father, even if your parents are not Muslim, still they deserve that you spend on them, they don't have to be poor, they don't have to be in need, but they deserves to that you spend on them in the form of gifts, and also

01:31:32--> 01:32:17

in the form of financial help if they need it. We learned that a smart little dilla Horan her, her her mother, who was a non Muslim was coming to visit her. So she asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that should I host my mother and should I financially help her and he said norm silly, silly omac that yes, be a be good to your mother join ties with her and part of that is to spend on her and then after the parents have could have been closest relatives. And this of course, any includes those who are you know, dependent on you and those who are related to you. So, spending on the relatives, remember this is also rewardable spending on your own family is rewardable the

01:32:17--> 01:33:04

Prophet sallallahu Urdu seven said that of the dinar you spend as a contribution and Allah XPath meaning one is a dinar that you give in the way of Allah. Another is that the now that you give to set a slave free, another dinar, you can give in South Africa, right to someone who is in need. And another the now you give to your family you spend on your family out of these four, which one is the best, the one that you spend on your family? This doesn't mean that you don't need to spend another causes. Of course you do. But realize that spending on your family is more rewardable it is not a waste. But unfortunately a lot of people think that spending on their family is a waste. They think

01:33:04--> 01:33:51

it's a burden. It's not a waste, it's actually more rewardable. So don't be stingy over here. And then the orphans those in need the travelers being the wider community as mentioned one of our lumen hyden for inala be here Eileen And whatever you do have good Indeed Allah is Knowing of it. Whatever you do have good because there are so many places where you can spend so many avenues any anything you give, do it for him, not not as a favor to people in seeking their approval. But do it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala kuti bar la como Peterloo wahoo akuto hula calm fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. earlier also we learned about the command to fight in

01:33:51--> 01:34:36

the way of Allah and remember that this has a particular context which we you know discussed earlier. We learned that saddam in Morocco the long war and who soon after the Prophet sallallahu Ernest and have migrated to Makkah, Saudi Lahore and who went to Makkah in order to do and while he was making falafel around the Kaaba, Abu Jamal came to him. And Abu Jamal said that how are you making follow up safely while you have given refuge to Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu sentiment his companions, meaning how are you feeling safe over here, when you are hosting, you know, Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu and his companions in Medina with you. So there was an argument that ensued and

01:34:36--> 01:34:59

basically saw that all day long Mourinho was threatened. And this made it very clear that no Muslim was safe in Makkah. It didn't matter where that Muslim was from. Even if he was related to you. It didn't matter. You know, what their status was. They weren't welcome in Makkah, and they weren't safe with the people of Makkah with the

01:35:00--> 01:35:44

pradesh of Makkah, therefore, a Hindi This was basically a declaration of war. And this is why we learned earlier that the Muslims were commanded to fight as, as, as a precaution as a defense that if people are declaring war against you, then you don't be naive over there, you have to be prepared. But of course, when it came to fighting, this was something difficult. In fact, gurukula come hateful to you, because the Muslims would rather avoid confrontation. But you see, in those circumstances, confrontation was not avoidable. If the Muslims kept shrinking away. If they were too shy to take up their space, then what would become of them. But it's amazing how, you know, when it

01:35:44--> 01:36:33

comes to people who are victims of oppression, or who are marginalized we keep telling them, you know, be patient be silent, this only will cause suffering to continue. So the Muslims were commanded here to to fight to take up space to not be shy of who they were. And then it is mentioned wasa untuck, crochet and Wahidullah calm, but perhaps you hate to think and it is good for you. Working hard is not always easy. It's not always enjoyable, where a certain to hibou Shay and we're who are shallow Lacan and perhaps you love a thing, and it is actually bad for you will love ooyala more into mattarella mode and Allah knows, while you do not know. So what should we do? We should

01:36:33--> 01:37:14

trust Allah's knowledge. And when he has commanded us to do something, then we should do it. Even if we find it hard. And if he has forbidden us from doing something, then stay away from it. Even if we find it enjoyable and attractive and fun, stay away from it. Because it's possible. We love something and it's actually bad for us. And it's possible, we dislike something and we end in reality, it is good for us. So we don't know everything Allah knows. So trust his knowledge and be obedient to Him. And otherwise also in life when Allah subhanaw taala decrees something for you, no matter how hard you find it accepted as Allah decision. When you accept it, and you're patient, and

01:37:14--> 01:37:56

you do your best you do what you what you can do. Then remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said amazing is the case of the believer. Allah does not decree anything for him, except that it is good for him. Why is it good for the believer because a believer is grateful and thankful. And when a person is, is pleased with the decree of Allah than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, to call upon a nurse, you will be the richest of people, richest of people, any This is what will help you to become the best that you can be. And if you're just stuck in your past, and if you're only focused on things that are not according to your wishes, you know, and their self pity,

01:37:56--> 01:38:45

self loathing, then then a person cannot make any progress through life. So difficulties are a part of the journey. You have to go through the grind to get somewhere. Yes, aluna karna Shaddoll Hello ami peterlin fi, they ask you about the sacred month about fighting they're in. Remember that there are months of Hajj and then there's also sacred months, what are these sacred months they are rajib little parda the hedger and Muharram for months are sacred. And part of the reason why these months are sacred is so that people can easily travel for Hajj and no war would would would prevent them from going for Hajj. And basically, what is forbidden in these months is is war fighting. Now what

01:38:45--> 01:39:32

happened is that, that in that some Muslims had been sent on a certain expedition. And they were under the impression that the sacred month was now over. But it was actually not over because it was the last day of the month. And they they assumed that you know the sacred it was no longer sacred month, and they ended up in a confrontation and they killed some people from the enemy. And when the Prophet salallahu Urdu send them found out about this, he disapproved of it. However the mushrikeen the enemies, and he they made such a big deal out of it. So Allah subhanaw taala responded that Kolkata alone fee Kebede say fighting there in his great sin. Definitely fighting in the sacred

01:39:32--> 01:39:59

marry polytheistic men to your women until they believe Well, I'm doing movement on hydro memastikan Willow are Jabba calm, and a believing slave is better than a polytheist even though he might please you. So the same rule is for both Muslim men and Muslim women that do not marry a mystic person. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm also clarified that a woman is married for one of four reasons either for her wealth or for her family or for her beauty or for her religion. So what is it that you should give preference to her religion? Any that is what you should be looking for in a potential spouse that do they have a man? How is their How is their religion? And we learned that

01:49:28--> 01:49:59

when you know when I was reading the Quran regarding hoarding wealth, the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that, you know if we should not be hoarding money, then what is it from this world that we should be seeking? And he said listen and there kulen will call when Shakeel and was xojo Minuten a tongue that remembers Allah a heart that is grateful to Allah and a righteous believing spouse believing wife that helps you in regards to your faith.

01:50:00--> 01:50:48

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also mentioned that four things are a sign of, of success. And one of them is a righteous wife. So a righteous spouse is, is, is a blessing that a person should pray for. And a person should also any prioritize that when it comes to marriage, it's not, you know, just how much you know, money can this other person bring? And what and what family are they from? And how beautiful do they look? Yes, these things matter. But what should matter most is the Dean of the other person, Allah aka the Runa Illa. Now, those polytheists invite you to the fire will law we undo in a jannetty will mafia to be evening, but Allah invites to paradise and to

01:50:48--> 01:51:36

forgiveness by his permission, when you obey, you know, at healer nasci la lomita the Quran and he makes clear his verses to the people that perhaps they may remember. So what So the thing is that the person that you spend your time with, definitely has an influence on you, their their way of life, the choices they make their habits, definitely it's going to have an impact on you. So when it comes to your spouse, you have to be very careful over here that what kind of an influence are they going to be with aluna Cardinal Mohave and they ask you about menstruation. Now, these topics are certainly a bit uncomfortable to talk about. But we see that Allah subhana wa tada has mentioned

01:51:36--> 01:52:25

them in so much detail in the Quran. And of course, we should be shy and modest in the manner that we talk about these issues. But our modesty and our fear of God should not prevent us from learning about these issues from you know, being clear about these issues because Allah subhanaw taala has instructed us to enter into Islam completely entirely. And part of that is that in our most personal matters also we observe the fear of Allah, we do things the way that Allah subhana wa tada has instructed and this is part of surrendering to Allah azzawajal and remember that the issues that are mentioned in this ayah any these issues should be known by both men and women. And this is not just

01:52:25--> 01:53:09

you know, in a knowledge that is specifically for women or specifically for men. This is something that Allah has mentioned in the Quran, which means that all believers should be aware of these issues. So every adult Muslim man or woman should know about these issues. And we see that waste aluna current in Mohave they ask you about menstruation, being the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu Ernie who was sending them about menstruation, and he they had no shyness in in asking about this matter to seek clarity. What exactly was their question? Their question was about whether sexual intercourse is permissible while a woman is menstruating. So the answer is given over here

01:53:09--> 01:54:00

that cool who are other farter delone Sara farter zylon Nisa filma hailed that say it is harm. Therefore keep away from your wives during menstruation. Meaning menstruation is another it's a painful condition. Therefore keep away from the place of menstruation during this time, meaning do not have sexual intercourse while a woman is menstruating. This does not mean that any form of intimacy is forbidden at this time it is only sexual intercourse that is forbidden, meaning vaginal sex is forbidden. And this is not because a woman is unclean or untouchable? No, it's because who are other it's because this is a state of have discomfort. It is it is a state it is a painful

01:54:00--> 01:54:49

condition. And we see that menstrual pain, any its difficulty is being acknowledged over here. And we see that a lot of people undermine the painful reality of menstruation. If a woman is not to pray Salah or fast during this time, why do we expect that women should be able to do everything while they're menstruating? Ie This is unfair. This is an acknowledgement of the fact that menstruation is something that is painful. One of the horrible wouldn't have dialed the horn and do not approach them until they are pure. So this is further clarified that do not approach them meaning do not have sexual intercourse with them until you have to hold them until they have become pure. What does it

01:54:49--> 01:54:59

mean by this? Until the menstruation completely stops. And the sign of that is two things. One of two things either that there's no more bleeding

01:55:00--> 01:55:17

And that means that there is no color discharge. Or secondly there's complete dryness in these are the two indicators. And also remember that the maximum duration of the period is 15 days. And if a if a woman is still bleeding after the 15th date, her period end she should

01:55:19--> 01:55:59

take a bath and start praying any the maximum is 15 days for either to the hot enough to hoonah mean hi to Mr. Kamala, and when they have purified themselves then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you, when they have purified themselves what does this mean? This means that one once the period has ended and a woman takes a bath, then it is only after that bath after that also that she is to pray and she is too fast and she can have sexual intercourse. So basically, the whistle the bath should only be after the period has ended.

01:56:01--> 01:56:49

And it further guideline is given over here that to Windham and Hazel Amato comala the men are specifically addressed here that come to them meaning approach the women from where Allah has ordained for you. And in this is an indication that anal sex is forbidden. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said three times Allah is not shy of the truth. Allah is not shy of the truth. Allah is not shy of the truth, do not come to women in their backsides meaning do not have anal sex in the Lucha you habita webbing, where you hibel Matata hearin Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant, and loves those who purify themselves. And you see, repentance is about you

01:56:49--> 01:57:12

know, constantly improving yourself changing yourself, that if you find out that you've been doing something wrong, you change your behavior, if you have a bad habit, you change that. And then Allah loves those who purify themselves meaning those who purify their bodies. So there should be also there should be a bath after, after after the end of the period, and also after engaging in sexual activity. So

01:57:13--> 01:58:01

when you Hippo Matata Heron we should focus on both internal and external purification. Nice outcome house Allah comfort to house our commander sheikhdom. Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you. So come to your place of cultivation however, you wish. Now the word helps which means a place of sowing seed. Any This indicates that sexual intercourse is supposed to be in the place of fertility, meaning not, again in this indication that anal sex is forbidden, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also clarified he said Maroon on men uttama houfy do Buddha cursed is the person who who approaches his wife from her backside. And when it is said over here that to Hello Sakuma

01:58:01--> 01:58:45

[???]o that come to your place of cultivation however you wish. This means that the the time does not matter. The position does not matter. You see there were some superstitious beliefs that people had jab it'll do more and reported that the Jews of Medina they would say that whoever goes into his his wife's vagina from behind her than his children will be cross eyed. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this idea that there's nothing like that, and unless it also means whenever meaning it doesn't matter what time of day or night it is, you see the purpose of marriage the purpose of Nika is to have a level of sexual freedom with one's spouse of course, a person should be cognizant of the

01:58:45--> 01:59:36

state and you know mood of their spouse but permission is not needed, but the word health is important. Health is what crop field right plants, any you cannot be violent with with your crop, right you you cannot handle your plants roughly, but a lot of people misuse religious texts, right they pick and choose only what is to their liking and ignore everything else. So a person should realize that you know, okay fine, a person does not need permission from their spouse to have sex with them, but it doesn't mean that they can they can be forceful, any sex is meant to be a means of comfort, this is not a place of abuse and harm and insensitivity. So this needs to be given

01:59:36--> 01:59:59

attention, that it this this is not one sided. It this, this relationship is within a marriage and a person cannot be insensitive and harsh and violent and abusive toward their spouse. There is a great amount of vulnerability over here in dependence in this relationship

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

I'm so honored that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the worst of people in position before Allah on the Day of Judgment is the man who has relations with his wife. And then he goes and spreads her secrets. And he This is also this is also a form of oppression will continually unfussy calm and put forth righteousness for yourselves. This has been interpreted in a number of ways. One interpretation is that this is referring to foreplay, meaning before sexual intercourse engage in foreplay because again, this is not a one sided act, that a person is only focused on their pleasure and they completely ignore. You know, you know, the state of the other person and put

02:00:47--> 02:01:17

them only unfussy come also means that say the DA which the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm taught, he said if anyone intends to have sexual intercourse, they should say any before the act Bismillah Allah Janina Shea, Aloma Janina shaytaan would generally be shaped on a metal zatanna which basically means In the name of Allah Allah keep us away from shaitan and keep shaitan away from what you have bestowed upon us. And then cut the money unfussy con, this also means seek children. So

02:01:19--> 02:02:05

meaning this should not just be an act for pleasure, but also an act through which you seek righteous children so that they're a means of, you know, sadaqa jariya for you. And then cut the money and physical also means do righteous deeds, any this desire should not be the only thing that is dominating your thoughts. Don't live for the sake of fulfilling your desires only also think about, you know, other other good deeds that you're supposed to be doing. What the cola hawala mu A Nakula Oh wabasha meaning and fear Allah, the fear of Allah is mentioned over here that yes, even in the bedroom, even in the most personal matters, Fear Allah, Ya Allah mu n na como la Koo. And you

02:02:05--> 02:02:52

should know that you are going to meet him, so don't disobey Allah, even in this matter, what should meaning and give good tidings to the believers. So we see that even in the most private matters, we're supposed to observe the color of Allah. And this means do not engage in unlawful sexual activity and give good news to the believers because when a believer is conscious of align these matters, they follow the commands of Allah, they fulfill their desire lawfully, they're considerate about their spouse, then there is reward for this as well as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained different forms of charity. And he also mentioned that there is reward of charity, in the

02:02:52--> 02:03:27

sexual act between a husband and wife, because if a person were to go towards how long then there would be sin, but when a person is limiting themselves to what is lawful, and they and they do only what is lawful, and they're considerate about their spouse, not not just selfish about their own pleasure, then in this is also reward therefore, give good news to the believers inshallah, we will conclude over here subhanak Allahumma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta astell Furukawa Tobu la wa salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
