So they were asking if there was any evidence behind that, and I said, There is none, which is why it wasn't mentioned in the previews, etc. Because there's no authentic report that tells us about that.

Zia showing off
that a person is doing something the way that a loss prodata has commanded however he's doing it in order to seek praise from people
to seek their attention
to gain importance in their sight.
What is Schick jelly
apparent open outward manifest chick
like for example a person openly frustrates to an idol. This is what chick jelly
a person openly makes are to
the dead person who is in the grave
and should coffee what is that hidden chick
which is in the heart that on the apparent a person is showing that yes I'm doing this for the sake of Allah I'm doing such a good action but in the heart he's doing it to gain praise of people. He's doing it to show off before them
so far, but the Lucha Mukhlas Allah hoodie, so worship a lot making the religion making worship, every act of worship sincere for him alone, sincere, for his pleasure to gain his pleasure to gain his approval. Now, do things basically are mentioned over here What to do? And how to do what should we do
for a Buddha let her worship Allah and how to do McCullough Salahuddin sincerely. If you think about it, the purpose of man's creation is what?
worship of Allah soprano Alto. And worship of Allah means worshiping Allah alone, not worshiping Allah and others. So the purpose of man's creation is to worship Allah. And it should be such worship that is uncontaminated, that is pure from any kind of shift.
And the first step to worshipping Allah subhanaw. taala is what profession of Allah is oneness, declaring the oneness of Allah. The first step to Islam is what? declaring the oneness of Allah, I believe that Allah alone is God.
And the second step is making one intention sincere in every act of worship.
The first is to say, I believe in Allah, that only he deserves worship. And the second is that in every act of worship, a person becomes sincere for him alone. Whatever he does, he does it sincerely for him. And this is a lifelong process. It is. Can you ever say that? Yes, now I have this loss. I don't have to worry. No.
You might begin an action with sincerity for the sake of Allah and halfway through that person is watching. See how impressed they were? I'm sure they like me more now. So you have to keep making your intention sincere. You believe Allah is one is lost, okay. But now you have to show it you have to prove it. And how will you do it with your actions? And what are the signs of a sincere deed? What makes an action sincere?
What makes an action? Harless?
What are the signs?
For example, a person does it when he is alone? Like for example, when is that you get up to pray? Why? Because everybody's looking. But now you're alone. You're at home, nobody's watching. But still when you get up to pray, is it to gain fame? Is it again, praise and know that it's not affected by the reaction of other people.
And this is something so big.
Because generally, we increase in our good deeds, we increase in our actions when people like it when they praise you.
And if people don't praise you, if people don't acknowledge, then what happens you wonder why should I do it? Why should I even bother, nobody even noticed it.
But if an action is sincerely done for the sake of Allah, then it will not be affected by the reaction of other people.
Another sign is that the action is not affected by the situation that a person is in that just because he's in good times. He does it. And it's difficult to he's not doing it. Everybody is okay with it. So he does it. People don't like it. So he doesn't do it. That's not sincerity. If you're doing it for the sake of Allah and Allah, He deserves it are everywhere, isn't it? So whether people like it or they don't like it,
consistency. So when a person is consistent in his action, then what does it show that he is doing it sincerely for the sake of Allah
and there's some
other sciences? Well, basically an action is sincere, when it is pure of certain things.
And what are those things? Mainly three.
First of all, the desire of importance
that a person does whatever he does, without having the desire to gain importance. What does it mean? That he doesn't do it to become important before people?
that people should notice me, that people should respect me. You understand? And if a person begins to expect that other people should respect me, and they should notice me, then what is it show? The action is not sincere,
for it was sincere, he would not even want to be noticed.
This is why a person will do that action even when he is alone, man has to rush man believe when nobody's watching, but Allah is watching. So he is afraid of Allah, what does it show sincerity.
So a sincere action is that in which there is no desire of importance, but rather a person desires to be important in the sight of who only
that if I do this, my rank might get higher in the sight of them.
Secondly, that action should be sincere, should be pure from desire of status.
That is a sincere action. That is a sincerity
when it's free from the desire of status, that a person does not desire, any kind of high status from people
Because sometimes, people will do certain things, just so that others will give them a high status.
Like, for example, a person goes to volunteer at a particular position, hoping that if I do this, and they'll give me a higher position, then they'll give me a much higher position. Just the other day somebody was telling me about how they met someone who is volunteering at a very huge nonprofit organization in Canada. And they've been volunteering over there for a very long time.
And they asked them that, why aren't you working there? Why don't you apply? So they said that there's no job opening. I mean, there's no positions over there.
So they're volunteering continuously, so that they can find a position that they can get, and they can be paid for it. This is what desire off
status. Because if a person is doing something for the sake of Allah, whether he's getting paid for it, or he's not getting paid for it, whether there's room for for motion, or there's no room for promotion, he will still do what he's doing.
Thirdly, it should be free from desire of praise.
that a person does not seek desire, any praise from people.
Because if a person seeks praise from people, that deed is not accepted by Allah.
So when a person is indifferent to these three things, desire of importance, desire of status, desire, praise,
then his deed is sincere.
It is sincere for the sake of Allah. And then it is acceptable.
Insert Zuma is number 11. We learn for any move to an Arab with a Maha Maha Salah who did say indeed I have been commanded to worship Allah being sincere to him in religion.
into the vagina if we learn well Maru, Li Li would law her worthless lien Allahu Deen and they were not commanded except to worship a lot being sincere to him in religion.
So what do we learn from these two? I add that I've got it that we have been commanded to have Islam.
And in this I also What does Allah subhanaw taala say, for boadilla Mukhlas Allah Hootie.
Why? Why worship Allah being sincere to him in religion? Because Allah Allah Allah His Deen on Harless, unquestionably, for Allah is the Pure religion.
Allah unquestionably remember this. Notice, understand this. And be alert about this that lilla had been called is Linda lamb over here is of is the Hickok meaning he is the only one who deserves what a dino harness.
What does it mean by a dino harness? A Dino harness has been understood in two ways.
First of all, sincere worship,
a dino harness a deep meaning worship and a harness that which is sincere
that which is done exclusively for him.
So who deserves sincere worship? free of any shade of shade Korea? Any schmuck? who deserves that worship
Loss of handle data.
Secondly, a dino harness has been understood as Pure religion. And what does that Pure religion? The religion of Islam, so Allah lilla hid Dino harness, what does it mean? That sincere worship? Whose right is it?
It is the right of Allah alone.
It's not the right of anyone else.
So worship sincerely should be devoted to who Allah subhanaw taala alone and Pure religion who has appointed it's
a loss of friends are that lilla had Dino Hollis, he has appointed it. He has given it to the people and all other religions. How are they? They're adulterated. They are contaminated. So Allah Allah Allah He Dino Hollis.
So what do we see over here? That pure worship is the hub of Allah.
It is the right of sincere worship is the right of Allah
and the true religion who has given it Allah soprano.
And the reason why we should worship Allah exclusively is because it is his house.
Simply It is his right.
If you think about it, whatever we have, who is it from? Allah soprano, Darla, isn't it so? And no one has a share in that.
Who is our Rasul? Allah subhanaw taala alone? Is anyone else our logic No. So when no one has a share, when it comes to creating us, when it comes to providing for us when it comes to managing our affairs, then similarly, no one has a share when it comes to worshiping Allah soprano.
When He alone is the giver, then He alone is the one who deserves worship.
simple reason? Allah Allah Allah He didn't call us
and Allah soprano Tada, what does he like? Pure, he himself is pure. Therefore he accepts only that which is pure, isn't it? In the law you
lay out a lot of play a lot is pure, and he does not accept anything but that which is pure, he deserves to accept only that which is pure.
Think about it. If you buy something,
and it says free of this and free of that, and no, no.
preservatives, no additives, no this no that. And you find out afterwards that there are preservatives in that. How do you find out that you put it outside for so long? It didn't go bad. It's been in your fridge for two months. It didn't go bad? How do you feel?
betrayed. You buy a bottle of water and you find out the seed is broken. When you drink from it. When you
never even if you're thirsty, you wondering from it, even if you bought it with your own money, you won't drink from it. Why? Because a seal was broken. Then why do we think that to Allah subhanaw taala we can offer anything, any act of worship, which is impure, even.
You will not drink from that water bottle because you say it's impure, it's not clean.
And you think that it does not benefit you. So isn't a loss of penalty much greater than us? Isn't his right much greater than us. If we don't like mix things for ourselves. Why do we think it's okay to offer mixed worship or a loss of panels or This is not fair.
If we love the best for ourselves, then Allah deserves a very, very best.
And Allah He Dino Harless Allah, He deserves sincere worship.
When Medina Taha lumen dooney, Alia, and those who have taken besides of our close friends, oh, Leah, and this wilaya is a very valid
meaning that they worship others besides Allah.
Like for example, they dedicate their acts of worship to them, they pray to them, the sacrifice for their sake, they seek refuge with them, they seek help from them. So those who have taken others besides a lot earlier, what is their justification? Why do they do it? They say that men are Buddha when we do not worship them in law, except the court de buena. So they bring us near ilahi to Allah zilpha in position. This is the explanation that they have. that the reason why we worship other than Allah is only so that they draw us
closer to Allah Bukhari buena from de Creme de creme is to draw something closer to draw close. So we worship them in order to draw closer in a law he zilpha zolfo from the roof that is a lanpher. And zophar is a close position.
What is it, a close position near NUS.
So we worship them in order to draw closer to Allah, in order to get in a position where we are very close to Allah, so through them, we come closer to Allah. And when we come closer to Allah through them, only then our dollars will be answered, only then our righteous deeds will be acceptable.
You understand the justification over here, the logic over here that they came up with, you see the machine of Makkah, they used to worship and last parameter, they believe in the fact that he is that he deserved worship. However, they thought that Allah is so high, he is so grand, it's impossible for us to
ask him of anything directly. This is just like people say today that if there is a king, can you go talk to him directly yourself? You cannot, you have to go through someone. So similarly, Allah subhanaw taala he saw Hi, he saw grand it's impossible for us to
ask him something directly to offer our good deeds to him. So what do we do? We go through others who those were already close to Allah.
So when we go through them, what happens? Our status becomes higher
than our draws are hurt. Then we are given risk
allele una Illallah his alpha. When we worship them, we draw closer to Allah imposition. When we don't worship these Olia, then narrow the relators though we are not even known by Allah, this is what they think. But Allah Sopranos I think about it, if he is the one who created every single person, then does he not know him? Allah, Allah, Allah. Of course, he knows the one who created he knows about every single creature of his. So the creation does not need to go through others, but rather they can pray to Allah directly, because who is Allah, a Samir Alba please
remember that incident of the woman who gave the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
presenting her case before him that her husband had done really hard on her and the prophets of Allah said Emma did not have any solution to that. So she began complaining to Allah she just sat there making Dora and then the IRS will reveal called the semi Allah who Conan lady to Jan De Luca fees Oh do you have? Well that's the key. You know, WA I showed the learner she said she was sitting over there.
She did not hear what that woman was saying. But Allah subhanaw taala high above on his throne he heard what that woman said.
Allah is a severe, you don't need to go through others.
For any Karim Allah subhanaw taala is ready. You can approach Allah directly you can pray to him directly. So this belief that we have to go through others to Allah, this is a false belief. And it's a deception of shape.
It's a false belief and it's a deception of shape one,
incident unicycle 18 we learn we are bounnam Indu lillahi Malaya, the room when a and for whom we are coluna hula issue for owner in the law and the worship other than Allah, that which neither harms them nor profits them and they say these are our intercessors with Allah.
When we worship them, they will intercede for us they will request for us then our there will be accepted, then we will be given forgiveness. This is what they say. Allah subhanaw taala says spoon a tuna be una la habima la la morphism IoT will fill up so but how know what our alumni usually go say? Do you inform a lot of something he does not know in the heavens or on the air that Allah does not have any shady.
There is nothing that draws you closer to a line this way. Are you telling a lie about something? He doesn't know that these beings exist. When he doesn't know that means they don't exist. Exalted is He and higher above what they associate with him. So they say, Man I will do him a Luca de buena Illallah his opha Allah subhanaw taala says in the La Jolla kobina han Allah will judge between them. When about what
FEMA home fee of telefoon about that which they differ in.
Meaning a lot will judge between the people on the Day of Judgment concerning that which they differ as to who among people is right and who is wrong.
What does it mean by this?
If you think about it, there are two types of people.
Those who worship Allah sincerity, who believe in their head
and others who
worship other than Allah, whether it is a dead person or it is easier to set up or it is, it was at a salon or it is an idol, whatever, whoever.
There are two types of people, isn't there a split up between a huge difference between them?
Now this difference,
where would it be solved in the Hereafter, doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala has not told the people about the truth.
Allah has told the people about the truth and what is that?
About the heat? So what does it mean by this hook of this judgment in the Hereafter, by rewarding those who are on the truth and punishing those who were on false?
Because this dunya is not the place of recompense, what is the place of recompense the hereafter.
So people have different beliefs here and there's different actions, but in the Hereafter, they will be separated in the law jacobina home female home see here telephone in all that the different concerning his worship, and the way of the believers is different from the way of the machine.
We learned insulted, abakada woman and nasty man yet the human do nilay and then you have bounnam kaha Bella, one Latina Ave, a shadow Belinda. One is the way of the believers who love Allah intensely. And the other is the way of other people who love other than Allah. So in the La jacobina, Han female home fee of 34. And if you think about it, even the mishti King do not differ amongst themselves. They do. Some say, Rosetta is the son of Allah, others they are Isa is a son of Allah. Some say the angels are the daughters of Allah, they have so many different beliefs. So all of these differences, they'll be solved were in the Hereafter, and in the law hilarya the man who
accountable kuffaar Indeed Allah does not guide the one who is a liar, and Kapha one who is most ungrateful, who is
the one who utters lies.
And what is the lie? That which contradicts reality?
And Kapha? Who is
the one who does a lot of gopher, and gopher is understood in two ways. One is disbelief and the others in gratitude.
Now, if you think about it, what is that over here that Allah does not show guidance? He does not give guidance to the one who lies and the one who is extremely ungrateful.
If you think about it, should What is it?
Is it a lie? Or is it a statement of truth?
A lie. And what kind of a lie is that? It's the greatest lie.
Why? Because the greatest reality is that Allah is one.
The revelation testifies to that. And the Aya designs I have counted, they also testified to that how that the entire universe, so many different systems, so many different things functioning together in one system, what does it show? There's one being behind all of that.
So the entire universe, testifies to the fact that Allah is one, Revelation, scripture, even that tells us that Allah is one ship is that there are multiple Gods so it is the greatest lie, because the greatest reality is that Allah is one of the greatest lie his ship.
So those who are candidates who lie, who utter the statement of Allah does not offer guidance to them. He does not give trophies to them.
And kuffaar what is the greatest form of ingratitude, greatest form of in gratitude? What is it shift as well? How that the one who is giving you, you don't worship Him alone. you're receiving everything from Allah. But when it comes to worship, you worship others.
Just imagine you will give a gift to someone. And that person does not Thank you. But he thanks, your husband, thanks, your father, thanks your mother, and doesn't even look at you.
He's thanking many people, but he's not thanking you. Is it the same? Not at all? He can go thank the entire world but if he does not Thank you, then that is what ingratitude.
Now if a person does not give the heck of a lot to him, but he's worshipping many others besides Allah, then that is ingratitude. So those who are Catholic and those who are kuffar being the one who does chick because chick is a lie and she is in gratitude of Love does not give guidance to them.
And over here, guidance, he died
This hit is off topic because remember, he does have two types. It is Chad, and I have tofi a lot of Panasonic gives a shout out to everyone. He offers a shout out to everyone knowledge, it's open, it's there. However, though fique, who gets it, the one who wants it.
And many times you will notice that people who believe in shake,
whether it is claiming to be a Muslim, but going to the graves during to be a Muslim but prostrating before, that saints, calling upon them any kind of [???] that they do. They are so involved in their ship. They live in it. That's what they are certain about. That's what they think about that no matter what evidence you give to them. They don't understand. Have you ever tried, they don't understand. And unfortunately, even amongst Muslims,
amongst Muslims, who go visit the graves, who go prey to that people, you try to tell them what they're doing is wrong, but they just don't get it.
They just don't understand because they're so involved in these lies. They're so immersed in them, that how can they even think, how can they even reform? Because if a person does not see the light, if a person does not realize what he's doing is wrong, then how can he reform his ways? The first step is realization. Then comes reformation.
And in gratitude and lies, what do they do? They completely blind a person. They don't let him see that what he's doing is wrong.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that in
the event, that indeed truthfulness, that leads to righteousness, truthfulness leads to righteousness. And the greatest truth is
the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. That leads to righteousness. What in the visitor? Yeah, the inogen and indeed righteousness that leads to paradise.
Yeah, the same word that leads to paradise. And on the other hand, what happens that we're in Al Qaeda, yeah, de la foto that indeed lies What do they lead to sin?
And we're in la familia de la. And indeed sin What do they lead a person to Hellfire? So in the La hilarya, the men who are caddy Wonka,
