We're in min Korea tin and there is no city Illa except nanomolar Liko her we will put an end to it. moodily Guha is a plural of Malik, who is Malik one who does Haluk what is Haluk it can be understood in several ways one is to destroy, which is typically the translation of this word to destroy. However, HELOC is also used for death is also used for death. Like for example, in Surah Nisa where the verses of inheritance are mentioned, it is that in Emeril own Halaqa if a man halacha

00:00:39 --> 00:01:26

if he's destroyed, no, what that means is if he dies, you understand? So Illa nationally Koha we are going to put an end to it we are going to finish it, meaning every city every population, every people, every nation, every person is going to die one day Coppola yomo piano before the Day of Judgment, it's going to die a natural death, meaning everyone is going to finish eventually, sooner or later. Oh my god, the Buddha, or we're going to punish it or that one should either a severe punishment, meaning they're going to be finished. Why? Because of the sense that they have committed they're going to be punished in this life. Canada Lika Phil Kitabi Mistura, this is ever in the book

00:01:26 --> 00:01:49

mustard mustard, meaning written from subtle. Sephora is to make a line and words when they're written, how are they written in lines? So this is written in the book meaning this has decided decreed that all people who live up on this earth shall die. Everyone's time upon this earth is limited. Eternity is where?

00:01:50 --> 00:01:59

Where's it in the Hereafter? And how it will be meaning how a person will be in the aka that depends on how he is right now.

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

So the point of the AI is that nobody's here forever. Everybody's going to go. So be concerned about where you're going to end up. Focus on that. One I'm Anna Anna, and nothing has prevented us a no sila that we sent bill I had science, miracles that people demand. Because the people were shaking they demanded from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, show us a miracle, show us a miracle. You say that Musa was also a prophet and he showed such and such miracle or ISA was a prophet and he showed such and such miracle. What about us? If you really a prophet? Prove that to us, show us some miracle? What kind of miracle even our best said that the people of Makkah asked the Prophet sallallahu

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

Sallam to turn the mountains of Safa and Marwah into gold.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:50

Wow, seriously, you're gonna believe in one God because you see a mountain turn into gold?

00:02:51 --> 00:02:55

Is that the reason for believing in God? Isn't that mountain enough of a reason?

00:02:57 --> 00:03:12

And they said, if you're really a prophet, then remove all these mountains from around Makkah, and turn this barren land into fertile land. Really? Isn't the desert enough of a miracle? Aren't the mountains a miracle?

00:03:13 --> 00:03:55

So Allah subhanaw taala says that why is it that we do not send miracles that people demand? What's the reason? Is it difficult for Allah? To turn mounts of iron Marouane to gold? To remove the mountains of Morocco? Is it difficult? No. If he created them, he can also remove them. If he made them one way he can also change their form. He's fully capable of doing that. Then why doesn't he show the miracles? Because it Allah accept and cut the baby * away alone, the former people, the past generations, the first people, people who came before, what did they do? They denied the miracles. Think about it. When Musa Suriname went to fit our own and showed him the staff turned

00:03:55 --> 00:04:06

into a snake that fit around say, Oh, wow, I believe in you. Did he say that? No. What did he say? This is magic. We can compete with it.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:16

He denied Right. Or you saw this when he showed the miracles amazing miracles. What was the reaction of the Bani Israel do they believe? No, they called him a magician.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:42

They called him a liar. So the thing is that Eman? The point that has been made over here is that Eman is not a result of seeing something amazing. Eman is what the submission of the heart acceptance in the heart and you don't need to see big amazing astounding things in order to accept the reality Reality is obvious. It's there.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:59

You know for example, some people they keep demanding from others. Show me you love me show me you love me. I don't believe you love me until you do this and this and this and until you show me this and this and this. Well really that is what they need to show you to prove to you that they love you

00:05:00 --> 00:05:17

You know, for example, a woman she'll say, why husband doesn't love me? Why? Well, because it's been one year and he didn't buy me any gift. Seriously, he didn't mind me any gift. I do this, I cook and I clean and I look after the children and he hasn't bought me any gift and he's got so much money.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:34

Well think about the house that he's paying for, for you. Think about the furniture that he's buying for you. Just because he didn't buy you a ring and sit at his knees, you know, in front of you, that doesn't mean that He does not love you.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

That doesn't mean that He does not love you.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:45

These are superficial things. And people who are superficial, who get very affected by the things that they see.

00:05:47 --> 00:06:20

They're the ones who demand such things in relationships and also when it comes to religion. I've done a few events and tabling things were like you know, handing out information to people. And what I learned from that is that you don't want to hand out tons of information to people who you know are just not interested at all you're only going to show more information give out more you know deals and things to people who are actually interested in coming in closer because if you spend 10 minutes talking to someone who is not going to pay attention anyways, it's just a waste of your time and you miss the opportunity to talk to people who might actually want to do something or learn from

00:06:20 --> 00:06:46

you know what you're giving out to them. So similar situation ilustrado Why would he give them signs and miracles when they don't want to listen anyways? There's no point to it exactly. So in the anchored there will be held a Walloon were attained some more than Nakata. Now an example is given that we gave to the people of the moon the NACA what is now called Chi camo. Remember when they demanded that she can walk out of the Rocky Mountains and what happened it literally came out

00:06:47 --> 00:07:27

it literally came out there was a she camel pregnant she camel the walked out from a mountain before their eyes, they saw it. Mobile steelton Mobile Sera, what is Mozilla visible? Like we learned earlier, the sun is visible, right? So they saw it. And Mozilla is also one that gives visibility when that opens up your eyes. So really, once they saw that camera coming out of the mountain, it should have opened up their eyes. But did it open their eyes? No. Why? Because they didn't want to open them. If they wish to open them. Then there were plenty of miracles available from before. For a lot of them will be her they did live with that camera how they killed it. Woman notice it'll bill

00:07:27 --> 00:08:15

at ELAR to whoever we do not send If miracles except as the hoof. The hui from how, how for sphere the wave to arouse fear, meaning, the only reason of sending the signs is to warn people. It's a warning that think if Allah subhanaw taala can cause this to happen before your eyes. Aren't you afraid? Aren't you scared of him? What are you doing by denying him by turning away from him? What a lurker and recall when we said to you meaning to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in Nara burger a * of a nurse indeed your Lord has encompassed the people. He has encompassed all people. The thing is that if you try to understand the position of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:08:16 --> 00:08:29

that how he is saying something and people are not believing in him? Has it ever happened with you that you say something to a person? And they say, No, we're not possible. It's so disheartening. It's so discouraging, you become afraid.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:38

And then some people what they do is they don't just disagree with you, they become very hostile towards you.

00:08:39 --> 00:09:03

So as their hostility increases, you also become afraid of them. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam obviously he was a human being, and he felt naturally afraid from people, people who opposed him. Think about it. He's in Makkah, he's in the Haram performing Salah and Abuja Hill comes and he tries to put his foot on the neck of the Prophet salallahu Salam.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:09

Think about it. Would you ever have the courage to pray again in public if this happened to you?

00:09:10 --> 00:09:48

If you're talking to someone, if you're, you know, you're addressing people and somebody stands up and starts, you know, threatening you or saying negative things about you the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mount Safa. He called everybody he's giving Dawa. And what happens? A hula hoop he just insulted the Prophet salallahu in front of everybody. If you are in that position, wouldn't you be afraid of speaking again to people? Yeah, but Allah subhanaw taala comforts the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Don't worry, Your Lord has encircled everybody. He has encompassed everybody. They are all within his grasp. So don't fear them. Don't fear these people because Allah Who will protect you.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

Allah will save you. They cannot harm you. And that's exactly what happened. Abu Jamal came to step on the neck of the Prophet saw a lot of them but what happened he moved back

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

Buddha he was afraid for his life. People tried to harm him, but they suffered because Allah protected him. Allah protected the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Well magia Allah and we did not make a rule ear, the vision, Allah T which arena we showed you? Meaning all the scenes that we showed you. When was the prophet saw a lot is that I'm showing amazing scenes on the night journey. Remember at the beginning of the Surah, we learned about Israel and Miraj. So the prophets on a lot of them was taken on that journey to Jerusalem and then from there up to the heavens, and then he was made to see so many things and when he came back and told other people about it, what happened, people

00:10:42 --> 00:10:56

laughed at him. They mocked at him, they ridiculed Him, they rejected him even more. Allah subhanaw taala says the reason why we gave you this was only Illa except fitna Lynas, as a test for people,

00:10:57 --> 00:11:33

as a test for people. As a fitna, the thing is that this journey that the Prophet saw a lot isn't was taken on was a real journey. It was not a dream, it was in body in a state of consciousness. And when he returned and informed the people, some people they increased in their belief, they increased in their faith and other people. What happened, who were far from belief anyway, they went even farther away from belief. They rejected the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even more. So this was a test that who will believe and who will not believe?

00:11:34 --> 00:12:17

Whenever there's an unusual situation, what does that do? It brings about the reality of people what they truly are from inside, right? Because when things are normal routine, then what happens we can pretend we can fake we can cover up, we can force ourselves to behave in a particular way we can agree. But when things are unusual, then what happens? What is inside is revealed, it is exposed. So this is a reason why, over and over again, Allah subhanaw taala makes people go through unusual situations when they hear about something strange when they see something strange or when something is very difficult, very painful, very hard, so that the reality is exposed. Why so that people come

00:12:17 --> 00:12:38

to know about themselves? Because the problem is that we don't even recognize ourselves. We think, yeah, I'm very patient. But then what happens when you get hurt, and you're screaming? What happens? What does that show to you? I'm not all that patient. We think you know what? It doesn't affect me how people talk to me. But then what happens when your younger brother insults you?

00:12:39 --> 00:12:45

And you insult him more in return, you realize, I need to fix myself, I need to work on myself.

00:12:46 --> 00:13:34

So this is a marathon this journey. What was the purpose behind it a fitna for the people. A test for the people was chateaux tell MeLuna to fill Quran and this is not the only time when people are tested. And another time when I asked were revealed about the shadow that is MeLuna Shudra. The tree that is MeLuna cursed, it is mentioned were filled Quran in the Quran which tree is this? The tree which is in * as a comb? When the ayat were revealed about the country in her shedule Ratan Tata Doofy oscillator him so to sulfat I have 64 to 66 that indeed it is a tree that grows from the bottom of hellfire it's emerging fruit as if it was the heads of devils. So, when this ayah was

00:13:34 --> 00:13:52

revealed, Abuja while he marked, he started making fun of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, bring us some butter and dates. So butter and dates was brought to him and he said, Oh, let's have some the poem. He was mocking at the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mocking at the words of Allah.

00:13:53 --> 00:14:03

And this behavior exists today as well. That people find something in the Quran that doesn't settle well with them. They don't fully understand. And what happens, they start making fun of it.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

They start making fun of it

00:14:07 --> 00:14:15

in the most horrible ways, that even hearing about it, it's disturbing. I mean, think about the amount of jokes that people have just about God

00:14:16 --> 00:14:38

that people make just about God, that people make about Ray Cyrus and that people make about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So you wonder sometimes and why is it that we are given this information for example about Jana? You know, for instance, Jana, there's Hudler in Jana. And people make a lot of fun of this.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:49

Right? And you wonder, why has Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this when he knew that people could potentially make this a matter of dispute and mocking religion? Why did Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in the Quran

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

as a fitna as a test.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

It's a test of belief. Right? And also mean it shows the mentor

00:15:00 --> 00:15:43

ality of people, that it's amazing how in the Quran we are told about so many different kinds of rewards that will be in Jannah in paradise. And what do people say? Or how can men can have who read and Jana? What about women? What can they have? Really? Is that all you can think about? I think that's so disgusting when women say this, if men will have who, what about women? Like seriously, that's all you can think about gender. You forgot about the houses and the rivers and the peace and the happiness and perfection of life. You don't give any importance to that all we're concerned about is partners. And the number of partners seriously.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:58

I mean, there's a reason why Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned these things to us, right? And what is that to either put fear in our hearts or to encourage us to do good, put people who are looking for problems, they will make problems out of no problems.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:24

They will just pick on something and focus on it to the point that it will lead them to suffer, it will lead them to disbelief when Huawei for whom Allah says and we threaten them, meanings a comas mentioned why, in order to warn people, but look at people from A to Z to whom it does not increase them. Illa except de Leon and Kabira, a great transgression,

00:16:25 --> 00:16:36

meaning instead of becoming humble, and instead of seeking Allah's protection against the punishment, what do they do? They make fun, they mock, they rebel even more.

00:16:37 --> 00:17:08

Likewise, when it comes to marriage, when it comes to the Night Journey, we will make fun of it. They will say oh really you believe that you're a Prophet went on something like a donkey up to the skies? You actually believe in that? And they try to make you think, Oh, how is it possible for an animal to fly? And how is it possible for a human being to go up there, you know what, we are human beings and we know very little, and we have limited ability. Allah subhanaw taala He is GOD WE ARE who creation,

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

creation, limited in power and ability. God is different.

00:17:15 --> 00:17:18

He can do whatever he wants, he can execute his will.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:51

We can see only what is in front of us and he can see everything. The problem is that we compare Allah subhanaw taala with ourselves, we compare the matters of the * with this dunya and there is a huge difference. Huge difference and until unless a person accepts this reality, God is different from me, he can do whatever he wants, and I cannot do whatever I want. The hereafter is a different world altogether completely. And this world this life is different.

00:17:53 --> 00:18:30

What is not possible here, maybe possible over there, it can be especially if Allah is telling us this is why one of the first descriptions of people who benefit from the Quran is what Alladhina you mean ONA, belie, who believe in the unseen Santa Monica? I was just thinking how Allah knows us so well. Because if you look at Han Allah, people say, Oh, now it's we live in LA New World. It doesn't revolve around us. We don't need it. But every single thing that Allah said, so far it does. We are all doing the same thing, every single thing that the people of the past have done, we're doing it all over again. It's like we've advanced but human nature is still exactly the same. So when you

00:18:30 --> 00:18:53

think about it, we need to change ourselves inside first, before we do anything else, human nature is still the same. The way that Buddha Hall would react. That's exactly how people react today. The way that people would make fun of the prophets that a lot is on the Quran at that time. People make fun in the same way to in fact even worse. So the Quran came as an answer to them, right? So we need Quran as well.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:18

Continuing from the previous point, I was just thinking that because human nature has been sustained so long Shavon keeps using the exact same tricks over and over and over again and we get fooled every single time. And this is why the next I Arthur about the shaitan so that we understand his tricks, his attacks, how he leads people astray because unless and until we recognize him as an enemy and know how he works we cannot be safe from him.

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

Let's listen to the recitation of these.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:22


00:19:27 --> 00:19:27


00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

me do more

00:19:36 --> 00:19:39

gonna feel kita being

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


00:19:56 --> 00:19:57

No more than

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


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

on a one on

00:20:03 --> 00:20:03


00:20:07 --> 00:20:08


00:20:12 --> 00:20:14

Becca hub on being

00:20:16 --> 00:20:17


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


00:20:22 --> 00:20:25

in Lafayette, Natalie, Nancy was

00:20:31 --> 00:20:33

one who we fall

00:20:35 --> 00:20:36

in love

00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

can be y'all.

00:20:41 --> 00:21:36

Yesterday we learned about Al vasila that those people whom the machine worship those individuals who are worshipped besides Allah, whether they are angels or they're righteous human beings or their prophets, those whom people call upon besides Allah, what is their reality? Who are they themselves in need of Allah subhanaw taala right, because in the eye what has been said, that there, yerba tahona in our behavior was sila, they seek means of nearness to their Lord, a you home a crop, each one of them is trying his best to attain closeness to Allah subhanaw taala they hope in His mercy and they also fear His punishment. Now, what is the meaning of Wartsila I told you the meaning

00:21:36 --> 00:22:19

yesterday, what is the meaning of Wartsila at the core robe, remember this word attacker robe? What does the curve mean to draw near to attain closeness? All right, it means to attain closeness. Now, if you want to go closer to someone, do you have to do something? What do you have to do? One is that you talk to them. So one way of attaining nearness to Allah subhanaw taala is what DUA and that is what we discussed yesterday, that how the prophets on a lot of said I'm also made gah right, why in order to draw closer to Allah? What are other ways of drawing close to Allah? subhanaw taala.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:33

Okay, Toba because our sins create a distance, so you want to overcome those distances. So what do you do? You do Toba? You repent? You seek forgiveness? That's a valid way what else?

00:22:35 --> 00:22:35


00:22:36 --> 00:22:47

Good performing those actions that Allah subhanaw taala loves, right? So performing various good deeds. So for instance, what kind of good deeds can we perform in order to draw closer to Allah?

00:22:49 --> 00:23:38

Okay, fasting, Allah subhanaw taala loves fasting to the point that in Hadith Bootsy we learned or SoLoMo li fasting is just for me, what energy is Eb and I will reward for it. Yes. sadaqa charity. Does that draw a person close to Allah? Yes. What's the evidence? Does Allah welcome the sadaqa of a believer Yes. So that in Hadith we learned that when a person spends in the way of Allah from the hip, meaning from the good money that he has from Halal lawful money that he has, that Allah subhanaw taala welcomes it, and he accepts it, taking it how it has returned, and he causes it to grow and increase just like a person looks after the fall, that he has a baby horse and nurtures it

00:23:38 --> 00:24:24

looks after it. So much so that that charity even though it was so little Allah subhanaw taala makes it grow, so that the person will get the reward of a mountain. So sadaqa is also a way of drawing close to Allah. Any other deed? Yes. reciting the Quran. recitation of the Quran. Yes. The standing in prayer, yes. feeding the needy. What about giving to the people their rights are about like for example, if a person is sick, going to visit them and looking after them. If a person is suffering from pain than helping them, you know, in a hadith, what do we learn that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will ask a person that I was unwell and you did not come to see me.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

The person will say what? How's that possible? How could you be unwell Allah will say that my servant was sick and had you gone to visit him you would have found me there meaning you would have found closeness to me. And you perform this righteous deed you would have drawn close to me. So this is the hook of the servants right that when someone is sick, we go visit them. The hadith continues. I was hungry, you did not feed me I was thirsty. You did not give me to drink. So giving the rights of people this is also a means of attaining nearness to Allah.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

panel data somebody raised her hand from the back from the chairs. Yes. SR

00:25:05 --> 00:25:16

Kathrada sujood sujood prostration. What is that? It is the closest position that you can be in to Allah Azada. The closest position is what? sujood?

00:25:18 --> 00:25:29

Yes, even smiling at each other for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala even a small good deed, apparently it's very small but done with sincerity. It draws a person close to Allah.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:35

Good luck, it's the heaviest in the Meezan. Yes.

00:25:37 --> 00:25:48

Good, small deeds that are done consistently. Because those are the kinds of deeds that Allah subhanaw taala loves that may be small, but are consistent. Yes.

00:25:49 --> 00:26:02

Your son? Good. Now, this is one way of Aucilla performing various good deeds for the sake of Allah with sincerity with love with fear with hope in order to draw closer and closer to Allah, what about zyk

00:26:04 --> 00:26:41

they could also write, okay, now, the thing is that when you're making law, when you're asking Allah subhanaw taala, for something, you always want to you know, have this conviction that your DUA is accepted or will be accepted, or you want to know for sure that your DUA will be accepted, you wish that your DUA will be accepted. Now, if you make a request to a human being, you say, Can you please do this to me? What do you do to make sure that your request is accepted? You follow the protocol? So for example, if you are submitting an application, you submit it on time, right? You follow the procedures, everything you do.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

What else do people do

00:26:44 --> 00:26:46

in order to have their request accepted?

00:26:49 --> 00:27:30

Okay, just asking once is not sufficient, asking again and again, you'll think about it, you are applying for a particular position somewhere, and many others are also applying. What are you going to do? You're just going to write something about yourself and hand it in. No, you're going to be on that case, you're going to try to make sure that you show yourself as really capable, you know, having that ability that potential to really fit that position and do the best job that you're the best candidate. So in presenting yourself as the best candidate, what do you do? You talk about your accomplishments, you talk about your, you know, work ethics, you talk about your outlook, and

00:27:30 --> 00:27:36

different different things. Now, when you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala, you can also make Waseda over there.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:45

What does that mean? That you do something in order to make sure that your DUA is accepted.

00:27:46 --> 00:28:26

Some people what they think is that you have to go through someone, you find a person who's very righteous. So for example, the Prophet salallahu Salam, or there is a very pious person who's from the children of the Prophet salallahu Salam, so you make them the receiver and then your DUA will be accepted. But this was not the way of the Prophet salallahu Salam, nor was it the way of the companions. What was their way that first of all, when they made dua, they made it with the presence of heart with sincerity mean, what you're asking for, ask deliberately meaning don't ask with a lawful heart that you're asking for something and you don't even really want it from your heart.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

Hello Please forgive me please forgive me, okay.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

No, is that how you say sorry?

00:28:33 --> 00:29:09

Is that how you seek forgiveness? No, what is the correct way of making dua adopting vasila what is that first and foremost presence of heart? Secondly, Iman Eman like for example, in the Quran we learn Robina mana found Atlanta or Allah we have believed and because we believe Please forgive us you understand? So in this jar, what are we taught? That what is being made with sila Eman? That because we believe or Allah forgive us

00:29:10 --> 00:29:24

after Eman so first is presence of heart Secondly, Iman, another thing that we can mention or that we can do, when making dua in order to make sure our laws are accepted is calling upon Allah by mentioning his names.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:46

When Allah hill a smell, Hausner, further rule will be her. Call him by those names. Because when you're calling Allah subhanaw taala by His names, then you're asking for that special blessing that is necessitated by his name that his name proves. So for example, you want forgiveness? What name are you going to use?

00:29:48 --> 00:29:49

A fool only offers

00:29:50 --> 00:30:00

also a photo Rahim and afar to YNAB right? So likewise, if you want

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

Want help with regards to something? Then what are you going to say? What name are you going to use?

00:30:07 --> 00:30:10

Okay, well Stan is not a name but a description. Okay, go ahead.

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

And Wali.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:21

Okay, marine again, that is a cipher, not necessarily an emulsified attributes of Allah that we learned from the Quran and Sunnah. That's also valid, yes.

00:30:22 --> 00:30:23

Or do

00:30:24 --> 00:30:51

you want help with something? And you find yourself weak and incapable, yeah, Cadiz, your Moqtada, calling upon Allah by His names, and remember that certain names of Allah subhanaw taala, they are such that if a person makes the call by those names than his dua will be accepted, what are those names? Some scholars say it is the name Allah. Other scholars say hi, elke UL, hey, Alka you

00:30:53 --> 00:31:10

every living and sustainer of all existence. So calling upon Allah by mentioning his names, his beautiful names and attributes, this is also a way of having your doors accepted. What other form of Lucila is there that we can mention, so that our doors are accepted?

00:31:11 --> 00:31:45

Sending Salah and Salam on the Prophet salallahu Salam, before making dua, praising Allah by mentioning his names, his attributes, His perfection, and then sending solid and salaam on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam why? Because when a person does that, then what happens? What does he get mercy. When we pray for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that may Allah bless him and increase his mercy towards him, then what happens? We are blessed with Mercy also. All right, one more thing that we can do is mention our good deeds,

00:31:47 --> 00:31:49

mentioned our good deeds,

00:31:50 --> 00:31:52

that Oh ALLAH.

00:31:53 --> 00:31:59

Once upon a time I did such and such. And I'm pretty confident that I did that for your sake.

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

So Oh Allah, if you like that deed of mine. If you accepted them, please make matters easy for me, please help me now as well. So for example, you are finding you know, studying for a particular test to be very, very difficult. And as you're making your you say, your Allah, my last test, you helped me so much, I was able to do it so properly, so Well, only by your help. I called upon you I trusted on you, I did my best and you granted me success. So Allah grant me success now, as well. You remember the story of those three men who were traveling and then they took shelter in a cave, and then the rock came and blocked them? What did they do? They used Wartsila. Right? How did they

00:32:48 --> 00:33:20

attain nearness to Allah? How did they increase the chances of their dua being accepted by mentioning their good deeds? This is what showing off? No, come on, how can we show off before Allah, it is only more servitude, that you are Allah with your tofield I did this. If you find it good. You were pleased with it, then please help me in this time of need as well. You understand? We learned about the story from Hadith about a woman who used to have this spinning wheel.

00:33:21 --> 00:33:44

Right, something like that she had and a goat as well. She went out for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala somewhere in when she came back everything was gone. Somebody stole it. So she made Dora and using was sila that if I believe in you, I am your servant I did this for your sake then please have my things returned to me and her things were brought back to her.

00:33:45 --> 00:34:01

So this is true that when you are in time of need if you talk to Allah, you know with conviction with mentioning your good deeds that you performed sincerely for his sake, this is a way of getting your doors accepted and responded to inshallah

00:34:02 --> 00:34:55

another former will see those performing a good deed at that time. So for example, you want to make dua, you need something and you raise your hands to make dua but before you do that you give sadaqa before you do that, you perform Salah before you do that you recite some Quran, before you do that you prepare some food and give it to your sick friend. You perform some good deed because your good deeds have just been presented to Allah subhanaw taala you fast that de la he us are doing Kalamata you good words and good words includes dua, they are sent to Allah but you know what a sends them what takes them to Allah. When Lamelo Sally, your good deeds, raise good words. So if we want our

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

good words of God to be accepted, what is it that we need to do along with

00:35:00 --> 00:35:05

them, what is the Whisler going to be? What is it going to be good deeds?

00:35:07 --> 00:35:36

Do we see this in the life of the Prophet salallahu Salam performing good deeds, of course, remembering Allah, of course, making dua by using his names. Of course we see this in the way of the prophets of Allah is Allah. Why? Why would a person may do it? In this way? You'll do Naramata, hoping, expecting Allah's mercy, and at the same time, fearing his punishment. All right, so is the matter of Osita clear. Any question? Yes.

00:35:38 --> 00:36:19

No, no, it's not mentioning your good deeds while making dua. It's not testing Allah's ability, nor is it challenging him, nor is it showing off to Allah one's good deeds are demanding compensation. No, you know, this is just like when you are talking to someone, all right, you apply for something, okay. And you want to be the best candidate? What do you mention the things that you've done? Do you mention everything? Things that are relevant to them? Right, that will make them realize that yes, you are the most suitable candidate. So you mentioned them mentioned your good deeds before Allah subhanaw taala also, so that your record looks really good. Allah already knows he doesn't need to

00:36:19 --> 00:36:26

be told. But when you mentioned to him, that you are, you know, asking him for more mercy. Good.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:42

Mechanical, very true, it makes draw less mechanical. Because it's a relationship that you have with your Lord, right? You're like, I did this in the past and you helped me you give me tofield you help me again. Now you give me tofield. Again, now.

00:36:46 --> 00:37:00

Of course, you can mention your sins and ask Allah for forgiveness, which is why, if you think about it, in so many doors, what is mentioned is the fall, seeking forgiveness. Because what prevents us from lifting up our hands before Allah guilt?

00:37:02 --> 00:37:26

I'm do bad. I've done this. I just almost missed my prayer. And now how can I make dua? Right? So this is from shaitan, this negativity, but the thing is that you go to Allah seeking forgiveness. And then you ask Allah as well. He will forgive you and give you what you want, because He is Allah. One more question that was asked about yesterday's class was with respect to the word or ruya.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:29

The word of Rubia.

00:37:30 --> 00:38:13

In the last verse, What if Canonica in our book, half of the Nassima journal reality arena, aka Rukia? What does it mean? That which is seen vision, the word root here is also used for a dream? Okay? But it doesn't only mean dream over here the word root yet doesn't mean dream. Because like I mentioned to you Mirage, the Night Journey was not a dream. How was it? It was a physical journey. It was one of the prophets Allah Lawson was fully awake, conscious, because in the first idea, what do we learn Subhan Allah, the SRB, or de Leyland? There are many words that prove over here that it was a physical journey. If it was a dream, by the way, then would the machine have any problem

00:38:14 --> 00:38:16

accepting that the prophets of Allah cinema had this dream?

00:38:18 --> 00:38:24

Think about it, in your dream, you can go anywhere, you can do anything, isn't it?

00:38:25 --> 00:38:49

But when somebody says no, not in my dream, but in reality, I went this place, and I saw this and this, that is where people will doubt you. Now the question is, why is the word Louis I used over here, it refers to the visions or the things that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was made to see on this journey. So he has that which is seen vision. What was the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made to see on this journey?

00:38:50 --> 00:39:27

First of all, by to mock this. Then Gibreel what else Baroque and then going up into the skies, the gates of the skies and then he was taken to Sidra Tolman to her right. And also, he was shown scenes of people being punished, a reward that is prepared. All right, prophets that he met. So he was made to see many things. So when he came and he told the people about what he saw, that became a fitna for the people. It asked for the people. Clear alright.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:35

So chronic alone will be handed in a shadow Allah Illa Illa. Anton a stockbroker to relate As salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
