Now when you think about alladhina Arsenal, what do you think? A long list of things to do? But what do we learn over here? And Ludhiana yejide, buena Cava, Islam, those who avoid the major sins, wildflower heisha and also the immoralities.
Over here, things to do have not been mentioned. But what is mentioned what a person must avoid?
Because a person can only do good when he avoids evil. A person can only excel in good when he stays away from evil. Because sins what do they do? They prevent a person from going further. They don't let a person move on they don't let a person Excel
they stop a person prevent a person. So this is why avoiding sins is what is mentioned over here. And levena edge attorney buena cabeza Iran is me those who avoid the major sins and also for Hush, eh then Ivana Astra h deneva from the route Fs g moon and each denarius to avoid something to stay away from something.
When do you stay away from something when it comes right before you when you have the opportunity?
Over here law says they avoid Kaaba law isn't meaning even when they have the opportunity to do it. They stay away.
Because usually what happens, the opportunity doesn't come. The opportunity is not there. And we think we're very righteous. And when the opportunity is there. And if we fall we make a mistake. We say it's not my fault. This is what we say. I am sorry, I fell weak. It's not my fault.
But this is the great thing alladhina buena Cava is they stay away from them.
Why do they stay away from them? Because they don't want to get tainted by them?
What do you avoid? What do you stay away from?
What do you think is going to make you dirty? What do you think is going to make you look bad? Look evil. You don't touch it. You don't even go near it.
I for example, some people they will not even you know walk in the rain. They will not walk in the snow. Why? Because they say that my clothes will get dirty my shoes will get ruined. They will not go in the mud.
I remember we used to go to the beach as kids. And this one friend of mine. She wouldn't take off her shoes. She wouldn't go near the water. Why? Because she would say I'm going to get covered in sand. Make you're at the beach. That's the fun part. But no. So you stay away from what what you think is going to make you look ugly. What do you think is going to harm you? So they avoid Kava is because they know that Kava and on Islam are going to ruin them.
Now the question is what our cover isn't covered as a Florida Kabira and what is Kabbalah? It's the opposite of Silvia. So the law is small, Kabbalah is big. So Kabbalah, if our big sins major sins, which sins are considered as major sins. We have done this before.
Which sins are considered as major sins which are defined as major which are stated clearly as major? How, like for example, the Hades elders avoid the seven great destructive Sins of them instead of them is one of them is enough of them is Riba of them as accusing chaste women. So if there is a text of the Quran or something that clearly said this sin is a major sin. disruptive Sim, then that sin is what that's in is what could be. Secondly,
it has some signs.
It could be a lesson has some signs and what are they?
What are those certain signs?
punishment, what kind of punishment
that has been specified where
punishment in the dunya and also where either punishment or threat of punishment were in the hereafter. So any sin for which is a harsh punishment, a specific punishment in dunya or Africa? There is a head on it, then that sin is what it's a major sin for example,
dinner What else? Stealing because for that there is chopping of the hand right cutting off of the hand
or 30 harming the travelers. Murder.
Okay, do a homework now make find 10 major sins
10 major sins you have to find them
Think about it, use your mind look into books, look for hobbies.
Similarly kids manual or in concealing knowledge, is there a threat of punishment for it in the hereafter?
Is there What? What is the punishment
that a riddle of fire will be put under person who conceals knowledge This is a threat of punishment in the year after Do we ever consider good monetarism as a major sin?
We don't. So any sin for which there is a specific punishment that has been mentioned in the Quran or in the sooner that punishment could be such that is given Indonesia like a hand or a punishment that could be in the hereafter.
Similarly, a sin on whose duer is the Wrath of Allah, the learner of Allah, the curse of Allah, his anger.
So what are the vital Islam? First of all, Sharia has classified them as a major sin. Secondly, there are certain signs and thirdly, remember that Islamic persistence on cellular also becomes equal to A Kabila that if a person continuously does, Sonia, he becomes firm on it. Then it becomes in its gravity in its seriousness, just like a major sin into the Shura is 37. We learn what Ludhiana una Cavallo is me, wildflower heisha what is Emma hopefully we'll do the same thing as mentioned over there as well.
So first of all, they avoid, cover it on Islam. Secondly, once our hash
alpha hash is a florala fissure and with since our for our hash
I've told you the difference between cabana and flower hash.
First of all, it has to do with those things that result from shanwa that have to do with one's lust, sexual desire, desire of the knifes which is why this word is used for Xena while at Aqaba, Zina in Ghana, fisherton wasa sabirah similarly, it's used for homosexuality, Donald shatta Mesaba can be him and had him in an army.
Similarly, marrying them Hello, Matt will attend Kiku Monica akumina Nisa, a llama putana in Ogun aphasia, and one of them was a Sevilla in order to little Israelite 32. So to laugh at sort of Nyssa is 22.
So, any sins, major ones, which have to do with sexual desire, which are related to the lust of a person, they are watch for Hush.
Why are they mentioned separately? aren't included in major anyway? If you think about it, Xena homosexuality, marrying the Muhammad aren't included in kabyle anyway, of course they are. So are they mentioned separately? Why do you think so?
Because of the severity of the sin, what else?
People are very careful when it comes to staying away from [???]. When it comes to staying away from stealing. When it comes to staying away from killing.
People pay a lot of attention to that. But when it comes to the desire of the knifes, when it comes to doing how long with the private parts behind closed doors, many people slip over there. Many people slip over there, they don't think it's that big of a deal.
will find people who say they're Muslim, however, they will probably be homosexuals, or they will have a relationship that is outside of marriage. And it's not considered evil.
So many times people they give importance to staying away from COVID but they don't give importance to staying away from for hush
and otherwise. So I should also includes any action that results from sexual desire, whether it's major or not. So for instance, foul words, talking about such things, pornography, looking at wrong things, listening to wrong things, nudity, kissing, holding hands, chatting with someone. All of this is what flesh, listening to wrong reading wrong looking at wrong doing wrong. Out of this is what for hush so to stay away from it. Again, many people will stay away from big things. But when it comes to these little little things, they will not be that careful.
It is also said that the difference between cabana and for HR for HR, those kabbah in particular for his art those Cuba in particular, which are
extremely wrong in the sense that they are morally wrong.
Any person who hears about it will know this is something wrong. This is not something acceptable.
And who's evil is not just limited to the door, but rather it affects other people as well.
Like for example murder, does it affect others? Of course, similarly Xena design affect others of course
13 is also said that COVID are all those sins that take a person to hellfire. Like for example, Chip
and flesh, on the other hand, are those sins on which there is a there is a punishment that is to be given in the dunya
because when the punishment is given in the dunya, then what happens
a person will be inshallah forgiven for it in the hereafter.
So, Kava enter which things those which lead a person to help file for which there is no HUD even like, for example, if a person does ship,
for example, a person becomes a motor, even if he's killed, is that going to forgive him for his death? No, it's not going to forgive him for his did that punishment is not atonement for sin. It's not a cafaro for the sin. But on the other hand, when a person commits Zina, or any committed theft, then he gets punished for it in the dunya. And that punishment is what a means of forgiveness for him.
Remember, because that's a part of the work. Taking the punishment is a part of Toba. So the difference between Kabbalah and fascist what according to some scholars Kabira is that which takes a person to Hellfire, for sure. And fascia is what for which there's a HUD Indonesia.
So alladhina Edgerton, Ivana caballo izmi wildflower heisha a llama, except the minor sins, except the small faults the small offenses. Now, what does it mean by inland lemma?
Remember that Illa This is understood in two ways. It says what how is this net
health is this not is this not what does that mean? exception is to make an exception.
So allow it means except, so, you mentioned something and then you make an exception This is how is this
and is this now is of two types. One that is with the sun, and the other that is moon caught there. There are many words that can be used there with the Sailor Moon for Sailor
Moon, the sun is what connected, meaning what you're going to mention is an exception from what was mentioned previously. So if we take the meaning of mortal sin over here, they avoid the major sins and the follower hische. Except for the llama meaning dilemma they commit
now what Islam we'll go into that, but I want you to understand the meaning of in.
Secondly, inla is also understood as munakata meaning it's not making an exception, but because it's not connected rather it's disconnected. So it gives meaning of lacking but okay. So, they avoid the major sins and the follower Hush. But as for the lemon,
they commit them and Allah forgives for that, because the deeds that they perform.
Now what is lemon, lemon is from the root fetters Lam me me and it has been understood in a number of ways. First of all, the word lemma means a small tiny minute amount of something very tiny amount to something silly or very small.
So lemon, what does it mean small things silly lessons, minor sense.
Small since minor since secondly, lemon, it is also said that allama bill McCann is to stay somewhere for some time
that you go somewhere you stay there for some time and then you leave. There is a phrase for Lando near far Luca lemon. So and so does this sometimes only
he does it sometimes only meaning it's not a habit, but rather he does it. Hardly, rarely. So secondly, what's the meaning of lemon then such a sin that a person commits sometimes not persistently? Not continuously, but rather he does it sometimes. And as soon as he does it. What does he do? He repents. He realizes In other words, it's not a habit.
So for example, where fascia is in a it is looking at something that is how long pornography For example, this is not something that is a habit of a person but if out of being a human
When being a person does something wrong, instantly he realizes and instantly events. So remember the two meanings so far that we learned minor sins and secondly, major sins but which are done hardly ever Why? Because after all, a person is who,
a human beings. Now we know that lying for example, is what it's a major sin, major sin. Now this ayah does not justify that a person should lie that a person can lie. But the thing is that since they are human, they do end up making mistakes.
And this is normal.
When a person is a human being, he avoids the major sins, but after all, he will make mistakes. However, what do we learn from here, that they do not commit major things? They do not commit indecent things, rather, it's only the slight ones. And those two are, are they a habit? Are they a habit? No, hardly ever lesser offenses small faults So,
and these sins when a person commits them, the small since the minor since then, Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins by His mercy, how, in two ways, in two ways he forgives them, first of all, because of the good deeds that a person performs.
And secondly, because of his refraining from major sins,
when a person performs good deeds and what happens in them has an ad. Use hypnosis.
And when a person avoids major sins, then what happens Allah forgives for him his lesser sins instead of the Nyssa 31 we learn in touch Danny will cover a llama to hold on who Luca fader uncom say article, one of the hillmorton and Karina that if you avoid the major sins which you are forbidden, we will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance meaning into paradise. And we also learned from several Hadith that the five daily prayers jumar to Juma Ramadan to Ramadan, what are they a means of forgiveness of sins, which sins that are committed in between the five daily prayers when a person commits sins in the middle as he prays what happens to the
minor sins, those are forgiven. Similarly, do more to do more. What does that mean? That when a person performs do masala and then a whole week goes by, and then he performs an extra masala any minor sin that was committed in the middle will be forgiven Ramadan to Ramadan when a person fasts praise property in the month of Ramadan, and then extra madonn comes that is also full of rebellion. So in the middle, whatever small sins were committed, they'll be forgiven. As long as the Hadees tells us either, then I will cover it as long as a person stays away from the major sins. Similarly, we learned that aroma to Umrah it's a means of forgiveness for the sins that were committed in
That's the mercy of Allah, that the minor sins even if a person is not seeking forgiveness for them actively in the sense that he does something he doesn't realize he's not gonna seek forgiveness for it. You get it. He's not doing Toba either, because he doesn't realize so because of the good deeds that he's performing, Allah will forgive those sins. Similarly, because he's staying away from the major sins, Allah will forgive those sins as well.
So LLM except for the lemon, what are Lama?
minor since small things, and since that they do, how often habitually? No, hardly ever Why? Because after all, they're human beings, it happens. But the main thing is that a person must stay away from the major sense.
Then another meaning of lemon has also been given
the third meaning of lemon,
that lemon means to go near mercy. It means to go close to acts of disobedience because literally lemon is Makarova cliche to go close to something it is said alum to bigger meaning I went near such and such.
So Ella lemma except llama, what does it mean by that? Meaning, they avoid major sins and the for Hush, but lemma. Sometimes they approach they go very close to it and
they go very close to them. However, as soon as it will close, they realize and they repent, they turn away. They turn around, they don't go further into that sin but rather, they turn around. And if you think about it, minor sense small things. What do they lead a person to
make sense major since the beginning Islam the beginning
What lemma approaching the same, and if a person stays firm on it, he continues, then it will lead to what Kabbalah like the Hadees tells us about dinner, that the eyes, the hands, the feet, all of them commits in until the private parts, either they confirm, or they reject. So, for example, if a person looks at a non Muslim, this is what llama looks at a non Muslim with desire with lust, this is what llama because it's taking a person closer to a major sin. And looking at a non Muhammad desire. What is it? It's a minor thing. It's illegal. However, it is taking a person closer to major. All right, if a person keeps looking, keeps admiring, and then he goes to the next step looks
again and goes to the next step approaches a person talks to the person develops friendship with them, goes out with them, eventually, what's going to happen, it's going to lead to the major C.
So ala llama, except for the llama meaning llama, they do end up committing how, why? Because after all, there shouldn't be. But it doesn't mean that they persist on them. And they end up committing the Cabal know, the maximum they do is the approach lemma.
Going a little coaster wrong. But as soon as I realized the turn back.
And if you think about the lemon lemon, what do they do? They stay in the heart of a person, isn't it? Even they have a bad effect on a person. Therefore avoiding the lemma is also very important. This ayah does not mean that committing lemma is okay. No, it doesn't mean it's okay. The main point of this part of the is in the lemma that they do.
Yes, they are very obedient servants of Allah. However, they're not perfect. They're not angels. Because human beings no matter who they are, they will or they will make a mistake, isn't it? No matter how righteous a person becomes, because he's a human being because he's insane, he will, he will forget. And he will end up making a mistake. However, they do not have very low standards for themselves. That they say oh, it's okay. I'm a human being doesn't matter. I can do whatever I want. No, they don't have low standards. They have high standards. This is why they stay away from Cavalli. They stay away from for wash and the maximum is that they just go close to it. And as soon
as they go close, they realize they turn around. And even if they don't realize a loss of penalty will save them He will forgive them for the lemma. Why? Because of their performance and good deeds, and because of their staying away from major six LLM. This is why Allah says in Naropa indeed, your Lord was your alma mater. He is vast in his forgiveness. Why is it said over here, that he is vast when it comes to forgiveness? This is why he forgives the number. This is why he forgives the lemon even because he is very vast when it comes to forgiving people.
Because he forgives people for the little little mistakes that they commit. If Allah was to hold people accountable for the lemon even then would anyone anyone be spared? No.
Because human beings what is our problem? We have freewill. And at the same time, we have SharePoint after us at the same time we have enough and that knifes there is for Alabama for JIRA hotaka. There is for you the inclination to do evil. And there's also taco the fear of Allah both aspects are there and then ups. So constantly there's a battle going on. Do I do this to not do this? Somebody is yelling at you. You want to yell back at them. You want to argue with the person you want to be sarcastic. You want to insult them you want to pass a negative karma that you want to do it because after all, you are a human being. However, Allah subhanaw taala is worse.
This is why the nama He forgives a person for it. Because he is very, very vast when it comes to forgiving.
And we see that a loss of handled artists mercy, it encompasses everything and his forgiveness. It entails every type of sin as well. If a person repents, if a person performs a minor mistake, or being a human being he commits a major mistake even and he repents, then Allah is was there enough that he is forgiving? He is one who forgives. And this is why we learned that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will ask a person about the various blessings that he bestowed upon Him and He will remind a person of the various sins the various crimes that he has committed, Allah will list each and every single one of them. And a person will say that's it. I'm doing I'm
And what will the last panel data say that for a new consider to her on a coffee dunya we're in the middle heliconia
That I conceal the sins for you in the world. And today I will completely forgive them for you.
I will completely forgive them for you.
So in naraba was there and reflect your Lord is vast in forgiveness. However, remember that when it comes to certain major sins a person has to seek forgiveness. He has to repent. And with regards to shake, if a person has not repented, is there any forgiveness for him? No, there isn't. Because instead of the Messiah 40th Allah says in the law hilarya Pharaoh unusual copy. Well Phil Medina Delica de Manisha Madonna della Cali, Masha Other than that, any other major sin even it's up to Allah, if you want to forgive a person and if he wants he cannot forgive a person. It's up to him. Because inara burger was
so when your Lord is so forgiving, this is why Allah says in sort of desert 53 Kalia iva de alladhina a software other unforeseen. Lotta Katana Rahmatullah. Don't despair of the mercy of Allah no matter what you've done, turn back. Why? Because in the La Jolla little denuvo Jim era provided that you return in the home welcome.
So in Arakawa, seroma, Farah who are in a movie called, he is most knowing of you, He is the one who knows you most.
There is no one else who knows you as well as Allah knows you. You cannot hide anything from him. You cannot hide any sin from him. Not a single thing. major or minor no matter how minor no matter how small it is, people may not even find out but Allah knows who will be convinced most knowing or be. And if Allah began to hold people accountable for the little sense that they commit, that no one would be forgiven, who are alone will become,
especially if and share a communal early, when He created you from the earth.
He knew you very well, when he produced you from the earth when he brought you out of the earth.
And sure enough, To cause to rise to create. So when he produced you from the earth, what does it mean by this?
That when he created your father, Adam, or his Sunnah from dust, because the origin of human beings is Adam a hustler? And what was he created from? mentor up into the Tawhai 55. Allah says minha holla kanakam Wolfie her new radical womanhood, you can tell that from the earth we created you and into it, we will return you and from it, we will extract you another time.
So from the earth, hello, Kanaka we created and because the origin of man is clay, this is why there's so much variety in the forms, in the abilities in the colors of people as well. Because if you look at Earth as well, if you look at soil as well, is it all of the same time? No. Soil is of different different types, different colors, different characteristics. So when soil is different, this is why people are also different because the origin of human beings is what?
So it's a combination of
what is anthem? So before you came into existence, even when Allah created Adam or a Salaam, he knew you at that time as well.
Isn't that amazing?
Isn't that amazing? 1000s and 1000s of years before you stepped on the earth. A lot of you before you even came here a lot know you. When he created Adam from Earth, he knew you then you didn't even know yourself, but Allah knew you. And he also knew you when what is until and when you were a gene Nutan fetuses were feeble Tony Omaha tiecon. In the wombs of your mothers, he knew you very well, at that time as well.
A gene is a plural of the word Janine and Janine is embryo, fetus.
And why is it called Janine? Because, Jen, what does that mean? To be hidden?
gene? Why are they called gene because they're hidden. You can't see them.
So when you were agenda, feeble Tony aromaticum in the wombs of your mother's
and at that time,
no one else knew you. But a lot of you.
If you think about it, when a child is in the womb of the mother, who knows the child?
Does the mother know the child?
Does the father know the child? No. They have no idea as to how the child will look like. They have no idea about the gender of the baby. They have no idea about the likes and the dislikes, the temperament of the baby, no idea. Nobody can tell.
From the greatest experts even even they cannot tell. But who is most knowing of a person even at that time? Unless what is an agenda to enfeeble Tony Omaha article? He knows you from a very long time.
And he knows you very well. He's the one who was most aware of you. So when he knows you so well, and he knows about your faults, and about the errors that you commit, and about your weaknesses, and about your mistakes, then fell out to the crew and full circle. Do not declare purity of yourselves.
don't claim to be pure. Don't ascribe purity to ourselves, because he knows your weaknesses. He knows what you really are. He knows where you fall short. He knows you well.
fella Taku and forsaken,
who are llamo bemani. Taka, he is most knowing of who fears Allah, who has done what Allah knows already, as to who has the power so you don't need to tell Allah.
Now that is a coup and pusaka to the coup from teskey. What does that scare me? purification to purify something. And remember that there's two types of rescue.
One does here is done through through action. that a person purifies oneself through his actions, improves himself with his actions, with his conduct, with his behavior, good habits, that he develops good habits, he gets rid of bad habits. This type of desk here are the ifla Herman does a
lot of the Harmon deca or the hog woman, the Sir, this time of this gear purification of the nuts through actions. Is this good? Is it? Of course, this is what we're supposed to do.
The other type of Ischia is through own through words, how? Like, for example, one person is accused of something.
So another person comes and he does his test get through his words, he says no. So and so could never do such a thing. Like, for example, I should have done he was accused. Allah subhanaw taala said, How come you didn't say how the Buddha Normally, you should have said that. So if the people had had done earlier, this was what they're doing this gear off, I shot through our
through words, that you declare the goodness of someone you declare the purity of someone that they have not committed something wrong.
Now, if you do it for someone else, Is that good? Yes. But if you do it for yourself, Is that good? No, it's not good. Why? Because when a person is trying to say that he's very pure, he's very good. He's very nice. Then this is like, showing off. This is like being proud about the good that you do. And this is what is meant over here, fella to the coup enforcer, this this guy is true, Cole of yourselves,
you understand. So do not claim to be very pure, do not declare purity. This is why we see that it is wrong to claim that a person has reached the heights of purification, that a person says that he has become very pure, very good. And he doesn't need to perform the obligations of religion, because he has attained heights of piety. And a person gives himself a status that Allah has not given to him
by for example, in certain groups of people who claim to be Muslim, they say that certain people have reached a very high level of piety. And because they have reached a very high level of piety, they don't need to pray. They don't need to give sadaqa they don't need to do how much and what happens, other people go and they come under them. They're disciples,
that they follow them, they admire them, they talk about them. They think that if they hold on to them, they will be successful in this world and the this type of this gear This is wrong. Who's have that person is forgiven? Who's that that that person has reached a very high level of purification? Does a person have any evidence? No, he doesn't, unless has led to the coup and full circle.
Similarly, it is wrong, that a person should praise himself and his righteous actions in admiration. Because Allah says Allah to the Quran. So a person should not say yes, I have done five or mas. I gave this middle card this year. I've had these many people this year. I sponsored this event. I brought the food today. This is not right. This is not correct. Why? Because when a person does that is in fact, claiming to be very pure. He's showing off his good deeds. This is something that does not benefit a person when a person does
Something good, he should remain humble, not that he becomes arrogant about it and he begins to boast.
Similarly, because of this, because Allah says for that is a coup and for second, this is why a person should not say out loud his intention to do good even.
You understand, this is why a person should not say out loud his intention to do good even, like for example, a person says Allahumma in in a way to understand that Allah I intend to pray, I intend to do this. I intend to do such and such, when he's saying it out loud. Then what is he doing?
What is he doing? He's informing other people around him does Allah not already know what his intention is? Of course Allah knows when the prophets are the loudest that have never did it. When he never instructed us when he never commanded us, then we are no one's to say such things either.
claiming to be very pure, claiming to be very righteous, Oh, I'm so righteous, I'm going to perform for the casula
facing the Qibla with will do what is this? does Allah not already know? Of course he knows and unfortunately, people have made such long sentences of Nia this itself is evident and it goes against the command of a lot led to the Quran for a second. Because Allah knows already about what you're doing.
Allah says a lot is 16 to Allah Muna la vida, Nico, are you telling a lot about your deen about your worship? Allah already knows you don't need to tell him. He already knows your intention. Because Yamaha in our uni wanna do this for no matter? What is in the southern, the near the intention, Allah already knows about it. So for that to the Quran, I don't claim to be very pure.
Similarly, because of this, a person should also avoid giving names to himself that contain meanings of self piety.
Like for example, a person is alive, and they claim to be shareholder Islam.
Is it appropriate? Is it tschichold? Islam? What does it mean?
The grand she's the one who is very knowledgeable with regards to every Islamic science. So for example, even taymiyah, he was given that title scheffel Islam after he passed away, and who gave him the title, it was his students. Why? Because he was an expert in every field, from Akita, to fake to the seed, every field.
He was an expert in that, if you study his books, if you just look at the fatawa, they are in volumes, volumes, literally. And the evidence is that he brings up the Hadees that he quotes from the Quran. It's amazing. So this is why he was given that title. He never took that title for himself. He never chose it for himself. He never called himself Shia Islam. But it was his students who called him after he passed away.
But if a person is an AI, and when he writes his name is a shareholder Sam so and so that this is what claiming to be very high and grand. But what does Allah say hello to the Quran pusaka. You may be very knowledgeable, however, you're not perfect and knowledge. And remember that those who are living are always prone to making mistakes, and a person who has died, his life was before you. He has died on good, then you may say good things about him. But if a person is alive, then what have we been told that don't praise your brother on his face? Why? Because you will be breaking his back. He'll become arrogant. So for that was a coup and forsaken. Similarly, a person must not give names
which contain the meaning of self piety are not just titles but even names. For example, we learn from a hadith that Mohammed even even a thought he said, I called my daughter Bella. Bella Bella is from bitch, right? What does wealth mean? righteousness, piety. And Barbara is one who does a lot of bitumen, the one who is very pious, very pious, and then Haven't I will sell an asset to meet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam forbade us using this name. And she said that I was originally called Barbara, and he said, led to the coup and full circle in Allah, Allah will be a little bit demon come.
Don't give yourselves to be very pure. Allah knows best, who the pious people among you are. So they said, what should we call her? And he said some more Isaiah. So he gave her the name, then. So a person must be very careful when it comes to giving names even Why? Because certain names they give the meaning of perfection of extreme piety. But what does Allah say led to the coup and forsaken don't claim to be very pure. Why? Because who are animal vimana Taka He is the one who was most known or one who is righteous. The one who has taqwa.
So Allah knows everything. He knows who fears him. He knows who is truly doing his best here.
You don't need to tell Allah by announcing your intentions by mentioning your good deeds by claiming yourself to be very knowledgeable by claiming yourself to be very righteous and bias. Allah tells us about the People of the Book intro to Nyssa I have 49 that I'm Tara Ada Latina user Kona and fossa who Bonilla who is a key Manisha. Have you not seen those people who claim themselves to be pure, rather Allah purifies whomever He wills because the people of the book they used to claim, purity, how that, for example, if someone became very knowledgeable, very learned amongst them, the way he was treated as a saint, the way he was treated as someone who was forgiven. And this is what they
say that if you believe in Jesus, then you're forgiven, you're going to heaven. This is claiming to be very pure, claiming to be free of sin, claiming to be very righteous. So Allah says, But Allah will use a key Manisha is Allah, Who purifies whomsoever He will tell?
Through various ways by giving trophies to do testing, first of all, by giving trophy to do good to stay away from evil. So you don't need to talk about it. You don't need to mention it.
What does it show to us? That Allah subhanaw taala loves those deeds which are done sincerely, for his sake, without pride, and with humidity. He likes such deeds.
So when a person is performing a good deed,
he should make it valuable in the sight of a loss. And what is the key to that? Don't talk about it. Don't tell others about it. Don't show off. Don't count it. Because sometimes this is what we do. We start counting I gave $10 yesterday gave 20 cents today. I intend to give this much tomorrow we start counting. Don't count. When you've done something good. You've done it for the sake of Allah. Leave it to him to reward you. Because the moment you start counting it, oh, I've done this, this, this, this this, then it gives you this false satisfaction. I've done enough. That Oh, look, I prayed sooner. a tragedy I pray tonight. I pray tonight mother. So what if I don't.
So when you do it for Allah, then when you've done a good deed, just do it and forget about it.
Because he is the one who will appreciate and when a person does sincerely that Allah subhanaw taala will also put Baraka in his actions,
that he will do something small, Allah will accept it, and he will also given to me to do more, and he will put Baraka in the actions as well.
He will listen to
about this incident in Islamic history that once there was an army of Muslims, who had been sent against the Romans
and the Romans, they had built a huge wall in order to protect the city. It was like a fort or the city was fortified. It was impossible for the Muslims to break it down or to even go across it or open the gates or anything. So for many, many days, they were there. And finally what happened was that one of the Muslims, he managed to make a very small hole that was also very obscure in the wall. So he went into all the armies, that we have a small hole, somebody can go, but that person has to be very small and thin. This anybody cannot go, he can go in and he can quickly open the gates and when he opens then we can go inside.
Now what happened? All of a sudden the Muslims realized the gates had been opened. So the Muslims went in, and they were victorious. So later on the Ask the Muslim army who went inside because he could not even select someone. Somebody just went quickly by themselves through that hole. Open the gates and the Muslim army came into the meeting asked later on who did it because he
Wanted to appreciate that person, he wanted to reward him. Nobody showed up. Nobody raised their hand. Nobody said I did it. And he asked many, many times again and again and again, for several days, but nobody showed up.
Then one day, while he was alone, we learned that this man, he came to him with his face covered. And he said, I know who the person is, who went inside and open the door. But I will tell you about only if you agree with me on certain conditions. And those conditions are that you will not reward him.
He will not reward him. You will not call him again. And you will not ask him about his new life.
If you agree, then I'll tell you.
If you don't, then I'm not going to tell you he said, Okay, I agree. He removed his cover from the face. And he said, I did it. And he left. He left that army. He didn't join them again. Rather, he went elsewhere. Why?
Why do you think so? Because he did it. For the sake of
such a big thing for which he could be rewarded so immensely in this world. He did not even want people to know about his name.
He didn't want to be appreciated for it. He didn't want to be thanked for it. He didn't want his efforts to even be acknowledged by people.
Because he knew that the one whom I did it for has seen it. And if he acknowledges my action, that is enough for me, I don't need the acknowledgement of people. enough that army, he went and joined another Muslim troop.
This was in sincerity. This is the kind of sincerity that we need. And if a person has that sincerity, only then his actions will be fruitful. Only then he can bring some benefit to himself and also to others.
Our problem is, we do what we do for the sake of other people, just to satisfy them just to please them just to look good in their eyes. And we forget that if we look good in their eyes, what about our image in the sight of a loss predator? Because a deed may be very big on the outside, but it may be nothing in the sight of Allah nothing. Why? If there is no sincerity,
so our focus should be pleasing Allah soprano.
And remember that sometimes it happens that a person realizes I'm doing such and such for the sake of this person.
Like, for example, I'm wearing Hijab because my mom wants me to, and we learn about sincerity, therefore, I'm not going to do it. I want to take it off. Is that the solution? What's the solution? Fix your intention?
Not stop the action.
Because this is something that we do. We start doing something good. We figure out my intention is not good. I'm going to stop I'm not going to do this again. That's not the solution. The solution is fix your intention.
falada kusa calm and if a person realizes I am nothing,
then you will never think that the good that he has done is enough, rather, he will strive to do more. And every day that he does, he will keep on improving the intention.
Now, there are three things in particular that a person should refrain from when it comes to sincerity. Three things a person must refrain from what are they first of all, what does it mean?
What's the root?
Hamza? Yeah, but I want you to see, Surya is to do something, in order to be seen, by people to show off, in a way, that's a proxy that a person is pretending that he's doing it for Allah, but in reality, he's doing it just to be seen by people. So the idea is to do an action such so that people can see it.
Like, for example, when it comes to, let's say, cleaning this place, even, there are some places which if you clean, everybody will notice, like, for example, this room, if you vacuum the carpet, everybody's gonna notice it vacuum, of course, everybody's gonna notice it. But if you do something such as washrooms, maybe the inside of the toilets, the stalls, is anybody going to see it? No. Only those people who actually come to the washroom only they will see it. So if a person says no, I'm not going into the washroom, but instead I'm going to do the main hall, I'm going to the reception, I'm going to the front stairs. And only that, if not that, then nothing. Then this is what the app
because a person is doing something in order to be seen if he's not seen. He doesn't do it.
Secondly, summer, summer is from some and what a summer mean
to here. So summer is to be heard, how that a person does something. And then he makes people hear about what he has done. how vital
about it by mentioning it.
Like, for example, a person mentions that he has the intention of doing something good. He talks to people about what he plans to do, what he really likes to do, in reality doesn't have the intention. Like many people, they become very emotional, they say, you know, look at the state of the Muslim Ummah, this needs to be fixed, that needs to be fixed. There's so much poverty, this should be done that should be done. And the person says, If I had this much wealth, if I had this much power, I would do such and such as what you're just talking in front of people, where's the action?
So this is whatsover eyes, and a person must also avoid that.
Thirdly, urge, what is originally
amazement. And remember, there are two types of amazement. One is to find something strange and deny it. And the other is to like something to be amazed at its beauty, to marvel at its beauty. So over here, this time of origin is the second one of is their son of liking and appreciating. So Rajiv is one being happy over one's own good deeds, being impressed with oneself that Oh, look at me, I have done such and such. Look at the perfection with which I have done this work.
So all these three things react Samarra an urge, a person must stay away from why, because they lead to a corrupt intention. They lead to pride, they lead to assuming purity. And Allah says fella to the coup and forsaken. Why were our Lhamo demon. He knows as to who is more righteous, even mosteiro de Leonardo, he advises students by saying to them, if your intention to seek knowledge is one of the following three, then do not do so. What embarrassing someone who does not have knowledge.
If the reason why you're learning is to embarrass someone who does not know, then don't pursue with this effort.
Secondly, debating with the alcohol, debating with the jurists
that 140 has said one opinion, now you're learning you're researching, you're investigating, okay? What's the evidence that that can contradict him back and refute him.
This, again, is around intention. And thirdly, desiring that people direct their faces to
desiring that people direct their faces to you. If you want to gain fame through your knowledge, then don't go ahead with it, because this is going to waste your efforts.
One of the examples that somebody has given for the importance of right intention is that intention is like the main food. And the action is like assault that you put on the food. That if your intention is good, if your intention is pure, if your intention is right, then a little bit of action is sufficient. A little bit of salt is enough.
And if the action is not good, then the salt is useless.
If the food is not good, if the food is not there, if it's missing, then what do you put yourself on your empty plate? What good is that salt? It's not good. It's of no benefit. So the main thing is the intention for Allah to Saku and
we listen to the recitation of desire
