these best days of the year, our days of Vicar, the days of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala declaring his praises and his glory as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised us to do that during these days, say a lot of the speech, a lot of the holy a lot of the cubbies, right a lot of the media and he said a lot of Alhamdulillah Allah who acabo de la ilaha illa Allah. So today in sha Allah, we will be talking about the best Vicar any which type of liquor is the best, and also the best Dora, which kind of da is the best. So remember that when it comes to the concept of remembering Allah subhanaw taala This is a very beautiful concept, any when we remember Allah, this

00:02:14--> 00:03:02

is a way of connecting with our Creator, the one who has bestowed many, many favors on us favors that we cannot even count. And we were created for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. So when we remember Allah, then this enabled us to worship Allah subhanaw taala and they could is one of the most easiest things to do. We see that when it comes to remembering Allah, this is something that we can do just with our heart. This is something that we can do just with our tongues and this is also something that we do, through our limbs, any we perform actions, in remembrance of Allah. So for example, Allah subhanaw taala said to mozarella his salon that established prayer for my

00:03:02--> 00:03:45

remembrance. So when you're performing Salah, you are performing a ritual act of worship, you are facing the Qibla you are in a certain state you have made whoodle you're dressed in a certain manner you are, you know, making certain movements. So all of these actions are what they are actions of Vickers, right of engaging in remembrance of Allah. When you go for Hajj and you're performing all of those rituals, what is the purpose, the purpose is to remember Allah subhanaw taala. So remember, that the vicar of Allah is with the tongue, it is with the heart and it is also through the limbs. But when it comes to, you know, Vicar of Allah, where you are declaring Allah's glory, for example,

00:03:46--> 00:04:30

or you are, you know, expressing thanks to Allah subhanaw taala, you are saying Subhan Allah or you're saying Alhamdulillah this type of liquid is of three kinds, okay? And the first way of remembering Allah subhanaw taala is to simply remember Allah in your heart. And this could be in the form of thinking about the favours of Allah, the blessings of Allah, the greatness of Allah, you know, the power of Allah, the signs that Allah subhanaw taala has, has created, you know, the different massive things that Allah subhanaw taala has created. Any when you think about when you contemplate when you will reflect.

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

This is also a form of wicked and this is to remember Allah where in one's heart and part of remembering Allah in one's heart is that you think about Allah subhanaw taala while performing acts of worship, you know, for instance, you are staying away from certain things while you're fasting. You don't you do not eat you do not drink. So why why is it that you are staying away from those things because you're thinking

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Think about Allah. Alright, you're thinking that Allah is the one who has told me not to eat not to drink at this time. So, this is to remember Allah in one's heart and this is excellent because this shows that a person is not you know heedless of Allah, they are not negligent when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala they're conscious of Allah. Right? And this makes a person more obedient to Allah. Now, the second type of the Quran is to remember Allah subhanaw taala with one's tongue, with the attentiveness of the heart as well. So sometimes, you know, we are saying Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar Allah Subhana Allah, you know, we're saying these words

00:05:44--> 00:06:27

over and over again. And, you know, our heart is not really attentive. That is not correct. What is necessary is that the heart is also attentive. When you say Alhamdulillah, you mean it? When you say Allahu Akbar, you think about Allah subhanaw taala His glory. So this is excellent, this type of shaker to remember Allah with the attentiveness of the heart, this is excellent. And the third way of remembering Allah is to just remember Allah with one's tongue, okay? meaning you're not thinking about what you're saying, You're not thinking about Allah's blessings, you're not thinking about his commands, you're not thinking about his greatness. And you're just, you're just saying, You're just

00:06:27--> 00:07:15

pronouncing words of the could. And even though you know this form of the code is is correct, any it is valid, it is the weakest form of the code, okay, it is the weakest form of the code. So we need to, you know, benefit ourselves from the the code that we are doing, and that is possible when we remember Allah with our hearts. And this can be while we are verbally making liquid, and also, while our mouth is silent, we're not saying any words of the could. But the main difference over here is between remembering Allah, consciously, and remembering Allah just with the tongue, but while the heart is distracted, so there is a huge difference between the two. And if we want to, you know,

00:07:15--> 00:08:02

experience the joy, the benefit the sweetness of the code, then we have to learn to remember Allah subhanaw taala, with our hearts with attentiveness, because that is where I know they could will really have an impact on our lives. When Allah subhanaw taala says, that Allah be Vickery law, he taught my inner kulu, that unquestionably it is with the remembrance of Allah that hearts find contentment, and he, how can we find contentment through the dhikr of Allah, when we are present, when our heart is present, when our mind is active, any we are engaged, consciously engaged in that victory. But if it's just a verbal exercise, you know, where we have set a target of remembering a

00:08:02--> 00:08:50

lot 100,000 times making a certain this be making the certain victory, and we're just, you know, focused on completing that number, then the heart is distracted. And this you know, entire activity becomes a source of burden and not a source of contentment. So, to find the sweetness of liquid, we have to in you know, engage actively into the color of Allah, the heart needs to be attentive. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to think about to recall the blessings of Allah upon you. Because when you think about the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon you, that you cannot help but say Alhamdulillah right, that because then what happens is that when you when you think about

00:08:50--> 00:09:18

the blessings of Allah, you realize that even when you lost something, Allah subhanaw taala actually gave you something in its place. So your heart overflows with the love of Allah, with gratitude to Allah. So when the heart makes liquid, then the tongue will also make liquid and then you will find joy in making liquid, you will find that sweetness and you will find you will experience the benefit of remembering Allah.

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

When it comes to the matter of wicked, remembering Allah subhanaw taala remember that the entire creation remembers Allah makes Vicar of Allah in sortal israa Allah subhanaw taala tells us that to sub be hula who somehow were to subdue our Lu woman fee hin we're in min Shay in Illa u sub B who be handy well actually lot of Kahuna does be home that the the the seven heavens and the earth and whatever that is, whoever that is within them, whoever that lives in them, every single creature glorifies Allah soprano.

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

And then it is said that there is nothing except that it exalts the greatness of Allah it, it glorifies Allah subhanaw taala by mentioning his praise, but you do not understand there at the speed, you do not understand how a tree makes Vicar you do not understand how you know an animal makes the speech of Allah, you do not understand their language, you cannot hear, you cannot comprehend. You cannot perceive the way that they remember Allah. But the fact is that everything is declaring the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala so Allah subhanaw taala tells those people who believe that Yeah, uh, you are Latina, Manu, with Quran, Allah the Quran kathira that all you who

00:10:46--> 00:11:32

have believed, remember Allah a great deal. remember Allah with a lot of vicars, any, don't be content with a little bit of they could make a lot of they could have Allah subhanaw taala. And we are encouraged to remember Allah in all of our states, we are told in the Quran about people who are, who are, you know, intelligent people, that there are those who are living if kurunegala pm and Walker rudan what allowed you to be him? There are those people who remember Allah while standing on end while sitting and while laying on their sides, any whether they're standing or they're sitting or they're laying down. What is it that they're doing? They're remembering Allah subhanaw taala and

00:11:32--> 00:12:24

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that further qurani remember me Of course, I will remember you. So look at the benefit of remembering Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala will also mention you, he will also talk about you, can you imagine any if you find out that someone very important mentioned you, they know about you, if someone very famous, you know writes a comment on on your post any you would be so happy any we seek the attention of of the creation. But think about it. When you remember Allah subhanaw taala Allah the Exalted mentions you he remembers you, Henny, what what greater privilege is there, other than this? So today inshallah, as we're talking about the best forms of

00:12:24--> 00:13:15

liquid are the best forms of remembering Allah. The first Hadees we're looking at, is about the fact that remembering Allah subhana wa Tada. It is better than spending gold and silver. There is a hadith in a tidmouth in which we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that should I not inform you of the best of your deeds allow on a be calm be highly are Malecon the best of all of your deeds. And the purest of them with your master was ganhar in the Maliki comb. And we are very happy the Raja Tico calm and the highest of them in your ranks? Well highroller calm and what is better for you than what than spending gold and silver and better for you than meeting your enemy

00:13:15--> 00:14:07

and striking their necks and that they strike your next. Any Do you want to know about the best of all of your deeds and what is regarded as the most pure deed near Allah and a deed that really takes you high in your ranks? And it is better for you than spending all a lot of golden silver and charity. At any Do you want to know the best deed and the Sahaba said of course Bella the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the cruel law hytera Allah, it is the remembrance of Allah, the Exalted and if you think about it, the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala It is, it is one of the most easiest deeds and it is also the most accessible. Any, this is something that every person can

00:14:07--> 00:14:26

do. It doesn't matter how old or young you are, how rich or poor you are, whether you're a man or woman, whether you are extremely busy, or you are free, whether you are very knowledgeable of the religion of Allah or you're not. It doesn't matter who you are, you can still make

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

any Vicar is an act of worship that is accessible to everyone. You see for different acts of worship. You need certain privileges, right? Like for example to go for Hajj, you You must be physically able you must be financially able and he performing hajj is not cheap, right when it comes to fasting also you need you need health, you need physical health, right? When it comes to praying Salah you need any Imagine if there's a person who just embraced Islam

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

They don't know how to pray. Right? They cannot prayer properly, right? They have to learn how to pray. You need a certain level of him. When it comes to even, you know, for example, the recitation of the Quran, you have to learn how to recite. You have to learn how to, you know, read the Quran. But when it comes to the wicked, yes, there are words of wicked that you can learn. But even if you don't know the words of because you can still remember Allah in your heart. You can think about how great how perfect Allah is, you can think about how he has favored you, you can think about how desperately you are in need of his help. Right? So the vicar of Allah really is a deed that is

00:15:49--> 00:16:28

accessible to everyone. There's no equity issues over here. And for the vicar of Allah, you don't need will do, right you don't need to face the Qibla You don't even have to be dressed properly. You know, for Salah you have to have Udo you have to face the Qibla you have to be dressed in a certain way. Right, certain parts of your body have to be covered. But that is not the case with the vicar of Allah. Like for example, a woman can make liquor without even wearing the hijab, right? Likewise, you can make the could while you're standing, and also while you're sitting, you can make the could while you're traveling. Right and also while you're at home, for Hajj, you have to go for Hajj you

00:16:28--> 00:17:07

have to travel in order to do Hajj, they could you can make at home in order to get the benefits of you know, praying. You know, you know greater rewards when it comes to Salah. You have to wait for the jamara you have to wait for the congregation. You can drive to the masjid but you'll have to wait outside you'll have to wait in the masjid until the jamara begins. But for the kids, you don't have to go anywhere. You don't have to wait for anything. You can make the could anywhere right in in whatever situation you are in. You don't have to go to the masjid you can make Vicar you know at your workplace. You can make the kid at home you can make the cook in a restaurant. You can make

00:17:07--> 00:17:54

liquor while you're standing in a queue. You can make liquor while you are waiting for an you know for for a web page to to show up. Right while you're waiting for something to download any you can make liquid no matter who you are. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us the difference between the believer and the hypocrites. The difference between the believer and the hypocrite is that the believer remembers Allah a lot. And the hypocrite barely remembers Allah. Allah subhanaw taala tells us about hypocrites that wilayah kurunegala illa kalila they do not remember Allah except very little. So given that victory is so accessible, that you can do at any time, who is it that engages

00:17:54--> 00:18:47

in victory more, it is the person who remembers Allah. And when a person is distracted from the vicar of Allah, any they don't remember Allah for a long time, this shows that shaitan has an influence on them because Allah subhanaw taala tells us is to whether Allah He will show planner for unsere home because Allah that shaped plan has gained mastery over them and has made them forget to remember Allah. So, if a person does not remember Allah much, this shows that they are under the influence of shape Han and we learn that when a person remembers Allah, then the influence of shape on bricks, you know it, it weakens, okay? So for example, in Hades, we learn about how when a person

00:18:47--> 00:19:40

goes to sleep, than shape on, you know, ties, knots on on him, right so that a person refrains from the vicar of Allah. And when a person wakes up, and for the Corolla, and he remembers Allah. So when you wake up and you say, Alhamdulillah, he lives here now bergama Americana, you think about Allah, right? It's time to pray, Allah is watching me. So what happens? One not that shaitan tide opens up. When you go and make wudu in order to pray, the second knot also opens up and when you perform Salah, then the third not also opens up. So when you remember Allah, then you break the grasp of shaitan over you the influence of shape Han over you, you free yourself. And when you think about

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

how the vicar of Allah is mentioned in the Quran, you know, for example, in total, I have Allah subhanaw taala mentions different good deeds that the believers do in Al muslimeen. Well, Muslim at meaning would mean at quantity in quantity, the fact that they are devoutly obedient to Allah the fact that they're truthful and that they're patient.

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

And that they are humble and that they spend in the way of Allah they fast, they guard their private parts, then it is said with their Kadena locka Thielen with accurate. The men who remember Allah a lot and the women also who remember Allah a lot. So it is only for the vicar of Allah that cathedra has been mentioned, that they remember Allah a lot, it hasn't been said that they give a lot of sadaqa they, they fast, a lot. No, it has been said they make Vicar of Allah a lot. So this shows us that the color of Allah is something that we need to do.

00:20:40--> 00:21:26

A lot of we need to increase in making Vicar and especially when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is it is the best deed and it is, you know, the purest deed near Allah. And it is something that will elevate us in our ranks. And it is something that is better than spending gold and silver, everyone does not have the ability to spend gold and silver in charity, but making liquid all of us can do making a lot of liquid. This is something that we should strive towards, and making a lot of because shows that you know, we need to do more liquid than than what we are already doing. Because, you know, sometimes we think yes, I made liquor in the morning. No, no, you can

00:21:26--> 00:22:13

still make liquor. Right? You can continue to make liquid. The liquid in the morning is not enough, right? It's cathedra you have to do a lot. And when you make liquid, remember that every word of liquid that you say is rewardable the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that every this be her every time you say Subhan Allah, that brings you the reward of sadaqa it brings you the reward of giving charity when you say Alhamdulillah that is also Sadako when you say la ilaha illa Allah that is also sadaqa when you say Allahu Akbar that is also sadaqa la Hola, La quwata illa Billah This is a treasure from the treasures of paradise. And we have been warned against being

00:22:13--> 00:23:01

negligent in regard to wicked, any we should not be of those people who are hoffy lien, who are heedless of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala tells us what could rub back if enough seeker to learn what he forgotten. What Donald germinal cold bill will do, we will also while at a communal Hall feeling that remember your Lord in yourself, meaning just in your heart, okay? How to love Warren beseechingly, any wells showing desperate humility before Allah. And also remember Allah Khalifa than any secretly do Nell Jerry mineral coal, and then also make Vicar of Allah without being very loud. And you can say the words of the could loudly and you can also say them softly. And you can

00:23:01--> 00:23:40

also say them just in your heart, you see, you can say them loud, these are that people around, you can hear, you can say them softly, so that only you can hear. And you can just say the words of liquid in your heart, but make the cause and make the cut in the morning and in the evening. And morning and evening doesn't mean that you don't make the cut of a line the afternoon or in the middle of the day, no morning and evening marks what the two ends of the day. And when you're doing something morning and evening, it means basically you're doing it at all times. So stay busy in the dhikr of Allah and do not be of those who are heatless. So, let us make a habit that whatever we are

00:23:40--> 00:24:21

doing, you know, every few minutes, let us remember Allah and you see if there are two people who are doing the same action, like for example, two people, one person is driving one car and other person is driving the other car. Both are taking the same road both are driving side by side, okay, one person is making liquor and the other person is listening to the radio. Okay? Is there a difference between the two, there's a huge difference between the two, the person who is making liquid is, you know, is at a different level. Right? They are earning rewards. And the person who is listening to the news, for example, they're not doing something sinful, you know, as long as they're

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

not listening to something wrong, any deliberately, but listening, you know, to even a podcast or anything like that. There's no harm, but they're not getting the benefit of wicked. Okay? And you know, there are times when you have to do certain things. Like for example, you have to listen to a lecture you have to sit through a class, okay? You know, you you want to listen to a certain podcast, for example, it's relevant to your work, it's relevant to your business, it's relevant to your interests. You want to listen to it, but even then, remember Allah subhanaw taala in your heart, you know,

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

Think about Allah, whatever things you learn about, connect them with Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, see the glory of Allah, notice the mercy of Allah, notice the wisdom of Allah. So, making Vicar of Allah, any This is something that we should never be headless off, we should always be paying attention to this. Another thing is that the way that we remember Allah, Allah subhanaw taala remembers us in the same way. And if you remember Allah alone, Allah subhanaw taala will remember you alone. When you remember Allah in a gathering, Allah subhanaw taala will remember you he will mention you in a gathering that is better than the gathering, that you are in any amongst the

00:25:46--> 00:25:55

angels. Can you imagine Allah mentioning you before jobaline before Mecca Eve, before the carriers of the throne, and he this is this is

00:25:56--> 00:26:47

this is a privilege, a rank that we must seek that we must desire. And this is this should be one of our codes. And when you remember Allah, you are not alone. Because in a Hadees, we learn Allah subhanaw taala says an AMA or buddy, hey, Samantha Karani. I am with my slave, wherever he remembers me. And he sometimes, you know, you feel very alone. Because, you know, in recent times, where because of COVID restrictions, for instance, you know, even if you have to go to the hospital, you have to go for a doctor's appointment, you know, your family is not allowed to be with you, you have to go alone, and we lost a panel to protect us, you know, people have had to self isolate. And that

00:26:47--> 00:27:38

is, you know, being alone can be very hard on people. It can be incredibly hard. And you know, some people are not able to work with others anymore. They're working from home. And if they're living alone, that means that they're literally all alone all day long. So, this is so beautiful. When you remember Allah, you are not alone. Allah is with you. And any time that you're experiencing loneliness, you're feeling alone, you're feeling isolated, whether the circumstances are in your control or they're not in your control, make Vicar of Allah, make liquor of Allah, keep moving your tongue, in the remembrance of Allah, you know, recite the words of liquor out loud, and you will not

00:27:38--> 00:28:29

feel alone. And we learned that those who remember Allah, Allah, Allah subhanaw, taala, promises them forgiveness and a great reward. Those who remember Allah a lot, they excel, they get ahead of others, in doing good deeds, any their ranks are far more superior. We also learn that when you say, you know Alhamdulillah it fills the scale but when you say Subhana, Allah will humble Allah, it fills whatever there is between the sky and the earth. And he imagine how massive The sky is and how massive that space is. And he imagined all of that being filled with reward. Because you said Subhan Allah, well hamdulillah those who remember Allah in a gathering, then the angels surround them,

00:28:29--> 00:28:38

Mercy of Allah envelops them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah subhanaw taala makes mention of them.

00:28:39--> 00:29:26

And when you remember Allah subhanaw taala This is something that not only spiritually, it nourishes you, it also is a means of physical strength. We learn in sort of the hood, that one of the prophets of Allah said to his people that way a comb is still futile Robuchon, so matobo la that all my people seek forgiveness from your Lord and repent to him and seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala This is a form of remembering of Allah. Right? So he said seek forgiveness from Allah repent to Allah what will happen you will silly summer or LA comic rara Allah will send the sky with abundant rain on you way zip compo what an illogical vertical and he will add strength to your

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

strength, any Allah subhanaw taala will send down beneficial rain on you and He will also grant you more strength he will give you more strength and strength. You know, it means physical strength, strengthen your body. Also, you know strengthen your numbers there you know in your in your resources. There's different types of strength and you know sometimes that you feel weak and you wonder why am I feeling so physically weak and

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

Yes, you need to think about what you're eating, whether or not you're exercising, of course, you need to pay attention to your physical health, but you also need to pay attention to your spiritual health. Because, you know, when the mind has a very deep connection with the body, and it has a very strong influence on the body. So, you know, it's, it's, you know, really obvious that people who are feeling down, right, then they also feel physically weak. Any, you may have experienced this yourself also that when, you know, when you're sad, when you're upset about something, you don't feel like doing anything to get out of bed, also, you feel like you're carrying, you know, a whole

00:30:47--> 00:31:24

lot of weight on yourself. Any, you feel physically incapable, because of your mental state. Right? So one of the ways of improving your mental state, your inner state, is that you remember Allah subhanaw taala, you make the could, of course, you have to, you know, look at different ways of improving your mental health as well, you know, finding out if there's, if there is an issue, and what what can be done in regard to that, but for a lot of people to access mental health,

00:31:25--> 00:32:15

you know, care, or, you know, to have access to therapy and, and things like that. It's not always possible. not always possible any week we talk a lot about, you know, going for therapy, getting a diagnosis, it is a privilege to get a diagnosis, it is a privilege to have access to therapy, to find a good therapist, and to pay for therapy. In it, these are privileges and of course, we should seek them. But we should also see what Allah subhanaw taala has promised us any along with that, we also need to benefit from in a ways that Allah subhanaw taala has, has prescribed for our overall well being. And one of the things is the remembrance of Allah. We learned the Prophet sallallahu

00:32:15--> 00:32:58

alayhi wa sallam said that the example of the person who remembers his Lord, and the one who does not remember his Lord, is like the example of the living one and the dead one. Any the person who remembers a lot is like a living person. So the vicar of Allah is the life of your heart. You know, sometimes you have everything in your life, you had great food, you had great company, but you still don't feel fulfilled. You know, you may experience those days where you just don't want to go to bed because you feel like you've got nothing done. Right? You have that emptiness inside of you. You feel like that? Start reciting Surah Baqarah. And watch yourself get sleepy and feel, you know,

00:32:58--> 00:33:49

content on the inside any, it will, in the vicar of Allah is is the life of the heart. Right and it also changes your future changes your trajectory we learn about Yunus earlier he said that when he was you know, he made a mistake and he ended up in the belly of the whale. What did he do? He made Vicar of Allah. Right? Allah subhanaw taala tells us and sort of soft fat that follow Allah and the whole can amino Musab be hain lebih Sufi botany illa yamu but I thought that if he had not been of those who glorify Allah, he would have remained in the belly of the fish until the day that the people are resurrected. What does that mean? That means that he would have the only reason why he

00:33:49--> 00:34:44

was taken out of the belly of the fish is because he made the Chroma. So when you make Vicar of Allah, it impacts it has an influence on your future as well. Right? When you make Vicar of Allah, it also has an impact on your future, on on your trajectory. Because you see sometimes, our past mistakes continue to hold us down, they continue to hold us back. So the vicar of Allah frees you. It frees you from the shackles of your past mistakes, because the vicar of Allah is also a source of forgiveness. And the vicar of Allah is something that you know, in a Hadees we learned that when a group of people gather together and their only intention is to seek Allah and they remember Allah in

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

that gathering, an announcer from the sky announces that all muma for a lecom that rise from here while you have been forgiven, anyone you get up from this gathering all of your sins will

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

have been erased, or the boot D let's say e t comm has entered, all of your sins have been converted into good deeds. Any Vic has a huge impact, okay? We we undermine the importance the benefit of the, we think it's something extra, you know that that people who are free, they do it like an old grandmother who has nothing to do, you know, she has no more energy, she doesn't have the ability to stand, she had surgery recently. So she can't really cook, she can't really do her laundry. So of course, he's going to be laying in her bed. And you know, with the TSB in her hand, she's going to be making liquid liquid is not just for people who are free. Liquid is not just for people who are

00:35:45--> 00:36:41

old, they could is not just for people who are perfect liquid is for all of us. And it has a huge impact on our entire life. We also learn that Vica is a defense against shaitan. In a Hadees, we learned that he here he said I'm set to the money is so ill, that I command you to remember a lot a lot. Because the one who remembers Allah is like a person whose enemy is pursuing him. Imagine a person who is who is fleeing from his enemy. Okay, imagine a person who is being chased by his enemy, and he's desperately trying to get away. So what does he do? He finds a fortress, and he fortifies himself in that, okay, and then he is secure. So what does that mean? As long as he's

00:36:41--> 00:37:12

running? Okay, as long as he's on the go, the enemy is behind him, what does he need to do, he needs to fortify himself in a secure place, then he is saved from the enemy. And he said, that this is the servant right? That he is safe from shaitan when he is engaged in the dhikr of Allah, when you remember Allah, you fortify yourself, okay? There is you know something around you to protect you from the from the danger of shaitaan

00:37:13--> 00:38:06

and we see that it is you know, for the purpose of remembering Allah that we have been commanded to pray we have been commanded to fast we have been commanded to you know, make hudge This is the reason why massages are built right and they kind of Allah Of course we can do alone on our own. But moosari has Salam you know he made our to Allah that how Luna or he should not be as re we're actually Kofi MD. That my brother held on make him basically my companion and he let him share my my my responsibility. Okay, strengthen me through him and let him share in my responsibility. Why? k knows a B hacker Cathy RA, whenever of cooler coffee raw, so that we glorify you a lot. And we

00:38:06--> 00:38:54

remember you a lot because one person on their own, you know what happens? You start making Vicodin then you forget, but if there's another person with you, who makes Vicodin you forget then you remember to make the also. So yes, you should make Vicar but you should also seek companionship of people who remember of law. Why? Because when they will remember Allah, this will help you remember Allah as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told in Surah, to have that he should keep himself with people who remember Allah in the morning in the evening. Right? Seek that companionship. And why? Because it is the vicar of Allah, which the prophets of Allah who are losing

00:38:54--> 00:39:18

him described as a barrier to solid, enduring good deeds, right good deeds that will remain that will outlive you, okay? Why because your life will come to an end, but the good deeds that you have done, right, they will, they will be preserved, they're not going to die with your physical death. So, you know, we seek friends who, you know, who are,

00:39:19--> 00:40:00

you know, who have a good sense of humor, who we share similar interests with, you know, who bring some kind of joy in our lives. We can do fun things with them. And that's great, but we should seek friends who remember Allah, because they will help you remember Allah as well. Allah subhanaw taala warns us to not to not listen to those people whose hearts are negligent under the curve of law. Any people who don't remember Allah, don't be in their influence. Don't be around them. Because then you will also become of those who don't remember

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

Allah will urja the biller and not remembering Allah. This is a huge loss, a huge loss. Allah subhanaw taala tells us here Are you her Latina armano lateral hicom Anwar Luca Weller, Allah Docomo and Villa, all you have believed your properties and your children should not distract you from the remembrance of Allah. When my fr velyka for Allah eco homolka serum, and whoever does that, then it is those people who are truly the losers, meaning those who are distracted from the vicar of Allah, because of their property, because of their children, then such people are actually losers. And you know, when it comes to property, sometimes in maintaining our houses in in cleaning our houses and

00:40:47--> 00:41:30

cooking and doing laundry, making the house look perfectly clean, you know, instagrammable then what are we doing, we are exerting all of our energy and our resources and our mental attention to what the house right or whatever it is that we are obsessed with. Sometimes it is the children. So these things should not distract us from the color of Allah. You can clean your house and still make liquid. You can you know, prepare food for your children, drive them to school, pick them up, take them different places, and still make liquid. Any Do not let these things distract you from the vicar of Allah, which means that you have to actively you know, you have to try hard you have to be

00:41:30--> 00:42:07

conscious about making the cut, it should be one of your goals. Because Allah subhanaw taala warns us will mean Yahshua and Vickery ramen nakaya Allahu shaitan. And for whom Allah who Corinne that whoever, you know, becomes a blind to the vicar of a ramen, and he does not remember Allah subhanaw taala the shaitan is a is appointed over him and that shaitan becomes his companion. Well, yeah, the Billa imagine shaytaan being a companion to a person, a friend to a person, influencing a person. So the vicar of Allah is something that we all have to,

00:42:08--> 00:42:56

you know, pay attention to, we think we make victory, but we need to do more, because, and we learn in the heydays, that when people sit in a gathering, right? They sit in a place and they don't remember Allah in that place, that will be a source of regret for them on the Day of Judgment. And people who don't remember Allah, they are described in a hadith as should Adil Hulk, the worst of the creation. So let us make sure that we remember a lot a lot. You know, saying a cinema la calm is also a vicar. Okay. seeking forgiveness is also the showing gratitude to Allah is also the could. There's so many different ways of making wicked. The second Hadees we're looking at is about,

00:42:57--> 00:43:45

about remembering Allah subhanaw taala a lot. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in this Hadees that Hyrule Amelie unto Pharaoh cadonia while he sonica Rotterdam in Victrola the best deed is that you leave the world, while your tongue is moist with the remembrance of Allah. This is the best deed that you can do, that when you depart from this world, you are making Vicar of Allah? How can a person do that? A person can only do that when they have a habit of making liquid. Right? Because if you don't have a habit of making liquid, then how can you make liquid at a time when you are in pain? When you are feeling afraid, right? And death is something that, you know, typically

00:43:45--> 00:44:30

comes to people suddenly any when they're not expecting it, there's no forewarning, you know, there's no notice, given that, you know, after 24 hours, the Angel of Death is coming to see you any there's no notice that we are given. So how can a person die while making the vicar of Allah when a person has a habit of making the offer. And this shows us that if we, if we happen to be by someone who is close to their death, then we should encourage them to make unfortunately what happens you know, a lot of times, you know, somebody's in the hospital, they're in palliative care, it's very obvious that you know, they're going to die any second, any the doctors are just focused on pain

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

management, not treatment anymore. At that time, you know, family comes to visit and they're just sitting and talking or they're taking videos or they're doing face time with those family members who are not able to come with the sit by the side and they cry. Right or they will just play the recitation of the Quran on their phones, put it by the person who is who is sick and and they will just, you know, talk amongst themselves or they will sit on their coffee and their tea or they will cry or they will continue to discuss what the doctor

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

Have Said and why the doctor said that and now what's going to happen? Any, okay? You've had that conversation a few times. That's enough now. Now, at this time, bring comfort to the person who was sick. And the greatest comfort that you can bring them is that you help them remember a lot. You slowly softly you know make Vicar of Allah close to their ear, not loudly, you need to so painful I've seen myself that people will play the recitation of Surah Baqarah on the you know, really loud on their phone and put it right next to the head of the person who was sick in you know, in the hospital bed. Can you imagine if you're laying down and somebody plays recitation out loud next to

00:45:41--> 00:46:32

your head, how would you feel any This is so disrespectful, any to the Quran, and also to the person who is who is in pain? What do you need to do is use your own mouth, right? It's your parents, it's your sibling, it's your grandparent, or whoever it is, you know, your loved one at the end of the day, and you should be helping them make liquid. So as you're sitting by them, slowly, in a very soft voice, encourage them to say la ilaha illa, Allah Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah who a copper, and I have seen myself to people whose side I was at when they were dying, that when I made words of liquid in their ears softly, they were moving their lips. They were moving their lips, and

00:46:32--> 00:47:13

they appreciated that. So you know, this is the best deed that that a person leaves this world while their tongue is busy into the crapola we should strive to fill our lives with the vicar of Allah so that we also die in a state like that. And if somebody is before us, who is, you know, in a state of death, then we should encourage them to remember Allah subhanaw taala as well. The next Hadees is that the prophets of Allah who earlier sent him said the most excellent invocation of the most excellent Vicar of blood with victory lap ilaha illa, Allah will have the Lw da e Alhamdulillah, and the most excellent

00:47:14--> 00:48:06

da is to say Alhamdulillah So two things. First, the best Vicar is to say la ilaha illa Allah and the best da is to say Alhamdulillah How is La ilaha illAllah the best they could you say when you say la ilaha illa Allah? What are you saying you are declaring that Allah subhanaw taala is the only one who is worthy of worship. So when you continue to say la ilaha illa Allah, this is something that cleanses you internally. Because as human beings any because of that weakness that we have, we, you know, get so attached to certain things to certain people, or we begin to pursue our desires to such an extent that it becomes unhealthy that we begin to give preference to it over Allah subhanaw

00:48:06--> 00:48:50

taala. So there are people who will literally worship their desire, right for our item and a doctor that Allahu Hawa. So when you keep saying La Ilaha Illa, Allah, this cleanses you, spiritually, internally, all right, all those false gods that we have made those unhealthy attachments that we have formed, those bonds are broken, and you strengthen your bond with Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the best Vicar and the best Dora is to say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah is to praise Allah subhanaw taala right. How was it a Dora because in Dora you're technically asking Allah subhanaw taala for something. So why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that 100 less is the

00:48:50--> 00:49:35

best Dora? Because when you say Alhamdulillah What does Allah subhanaw taala promise? Let in Shackleton let us see the nickel. If you show gratitude, I will increase blessings for you. I will give you even more. So yes, you're saying and hamdulillah all praises to Allah. But you are in a way also asking Allah because when you say Alhamdulillah Allah will give you something. Allah will give you rewards, Allah will give you increase in your blessings. Allah will give you what you cannot even imagine. So Alhamdulillah is a form of drop. And also some of Allah said that Alhamdulillah over here is referring to sort of fatty hell, because it begins with Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

an insult to fatty What are we essentially doing? We're asking ALLAH, we begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala and then in the middle of the surah until the end, we are asking Allah something. And what is that guidance? Athina Soraka mustafi. So of the law, decree law in the law, remember that to say la ilaha illAllah ne This is a branch of faith and it is a state

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

That will be a source of salvation for a person. It is a source of mercy. When a person says La Ilaha Illa sincerely with their heart. Then in a hadith we learn Hadees and Buhari that such people will be given the privilege of the intercession of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment. So, when you say lair Illa Illa Allah, say it with your heart said with sincerity and the person who dies, while he knows that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah, then such a person will be admitted into Jenna. So, the person who was dying, we should encourage them to say that either a lover and we should also have the habit of saying La ilaha illAllah ourselves. The

00:50:42--> 00:51:28

next Hadeeth is we have to shukri Alhamdulillah right, the most excellent gratitude is to say Alhamdulillah ne and hamdulillah is da and Alhamdulillah is also a form of expressing gratitude. Okay? And the best way in which you can express gratitude to Allah is that you say Alhamdulillah You know, sometimes people will, in their own language express gratitude to Allah. Okay? Like for example, they'll say Allah, Allah Clark sugar, right? In Urdu. Lark is 100,000. Okay, so meaning, I think a lot 100,000 times under 1000 times more, even more. Right? Okay, that's nice, but to say Alhamdulillah is even better.

00:51:29--> 00:52:24

Why? Because these are words that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us, right, the end and these are words that are more, more beneficial and more meaningful rather than to say all thanks to Allah. Okay. Why? Because a hunt is more than just thanks. hummed is thanks and praise, loving praise, there is humility, there is honesty, you know, all of that is combined within HAMP. Okay, and Ron and I have, you know, mentioned differences between hand and sugar. It is possible that you have sugar in your heart, but you never express it. Okay? But how is verbal expression of gratitude? And when it comes to, you know, expressing gratitude to Allah. When we say Alhamdulillah, it means all

00:52:24--> 00:53:12

praise and thanks, is for Allah alone. Okay? Which means that you are praising Allah subhanaw taala in all of your circumstances, regardless of what has happened. When you say, Thank you, Allah in, you know, in your own words, okay? You are only expressing thanks for things that you like. But when you say Alhamdulillah, you're also expressing gratitude over things that you find difficult, over things that you don't understand. Because even in that there is benefit for you. Okay, even in that Allah subhanaw taala did not make a mistake, he is perfect in the decision that he made. All right. And, you know, so often it happens that we are experiencing some difficulty. We don't understand

00:53:12--> 00:54:04

what the benefit is, what the wisdom is why it's happening. You know, it's it's very difficult to comprehend. But then, after some time, when you realize all the benefit you have gained through that difficulty. You You're like, I wouldn't have it any other way. Alright, Allah's decision was the perfect decision. So Alhamdulillah when you say you are expressing gratitude over things, you like things that you find difficult, and the focus of Alhamdulillah is not the blessing, the focus of Alhamdulillah is Allah. Okay, you are focusing on who, on declaring the greatness the perfection, of the giver, not the blessing. And, and that's the main thing, right, that we need to attach ourselves

00:54:04--> 00:54:19

to Allah, not the things that that that we have around us, or that are missing in our lives or that we have gained or that we have lost, you know, and hamdulillah is about focusing on Allah azza wa jal.

00:54:20--> 00:54:59

Now when it comes to saying Alhamdulillah there is a beautiful Hadith in which we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that your Lord loves a lamp. When you say Alhamdulillah, Allah loves that. The the people, the best people, on the day of gentlemen, will be those who are hammer Dune, those who say Alhamdulillah a lot. In a hadith we learn Alhamdulillah a term that will Misa when you say Alhamdulillah it fills the scale and the scale of deeds on the day of gentlemen. So massive those scales, any it reaches the max basically when you say Alhamdulillah

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

And to say Alhamdulillah hiqa Fiera is good. You can say Alhamdulillah Hiro Bella alameen as well, and you can simply say Alhamdulillah also, and we can say, we we should express gratitude to Allah by saying, Alhamdulillah at the beginning of the day when we wake up Alhamdulillah Hilary Ariana, right. And also when we eat Alhamdulillah when we drink Alhamdulillah when things are great Alhamdulillah when things are a little difficult Alhamdulillah here I luckily her right in every state, and when we receive a blessing Alhamdulillah he

00:55:40--> 00:55:41

you know,

00:55:42--> 00:56:31

as well at hamdulillah at that time, on on receiving the good news of having a child on having children, also Alhamdulillah you see Ibrahim and he sent him he said Alhamdulillah he led the way her belly or Ll Kibera he is smart, he know what is how all praises to Allah, Who gifted me in my old age is Marielle and Isaak so and how to express gratitude by saying and hamdulillah for the blessing of children, when Allah subhanaw taala grants you success when the last panel title grants you, you know, blessings of this world, then Alhamdulillah at that time also, there wouldn't be a man or Lady mussalam both were prophets of Allah, they were kings, Allah subhanaw taala had given

00:56:31--> 00:57:21

them a unique blessings. And what did they say? Allah subhanaw taala tells us we'll call on both of them said Alhamdulillah Hilary falana Allah cathedra millinery by the meaning, all praises to Allah, Who gave us preference over many of his believing slaves, when someone accepts Islam, at your hands Alhamdulillah even when you see someone in difficulty, you say, Alhamdulillah, Allah subhanaw taala protected you, when you complete something, when you reach the end of, you know, something that you began, then at that time also Alhamdulillah when you go to your bed at night Alhamdulillah when you are in difficulty Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah in all states, and you know, Alhamdulillah is a to

00:57:21--> 00:57:30

express gratitude, you know, there are studies that show that it is not enough to just feel gratitude, when you actually express gratitude that has a

00:57:32--> 00:58:18

that has a greater impact on your well being compared to just feeling gratitude. So, you know, there are studies in which they, they had one group just, you know, feel gratitude and think about, you know, different things that they were grateful for, and just record those things, you know, for themselves. And then another group of people who were asked to not just think about things that they were grateful for, but also express gratitude. Okay, so for example, make that phone call and say thank you send a thank you note, you know, and then they observed that people who expressed gratitude, they fared far better than people who just felt gratitude. So we have to express

00:58:18--> 00:58:43

gratitude throughout the day, and in different states. The fifth Hadees we're looking at is about the best words. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are four that are the best of words are born of Luke column of the old column. And you think about how much we talked throughout the day. What kind of words we use, you know, different people have different expressions that they use commonly.

00:58:44--> 00:59:27

So, out of all the words that you say, the best are four, and what are these four words these are Subhan, Allah Alhamdulillah Allah ilaha illa Allah, Allah Akbar, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam said regarding these words, that lie on ruka Bay in Nevada, it will not harm you, you can, but you can begin with any of these words you can meaning you can say these words in any order. You can say them in the order of sapan. Allah will hamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, or you can say Allah who took about 100 Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, you know, whatever order that you can, you know, that is easy for you that comes to your mind, but the point

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

is, say these words, each of these words is very, very beneficial, very, very important and they are beloved to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? in Hades we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that were I to say Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah illallah wa Allahu Akbar, then these words are more beloved to me, than anything on which the sun rises. Anyone the sun rises in the morning, its light reaches

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

Everything, right? So imagine anything that the sun's light touches the prophets of Allah, Who are your solemn loved to say these words of wicked, more than all of those things? What are the things that we love, that we so desperately want? Right? The things of this dunya we love them, the Prophet sallallahu it is in love these words even more Subhan Allah is to declare the perfection of Allah. Right Alhamdulillah is to declare the praise of Allah. La ilaha illa Allah is to declare the oneness of Allah. Allahu Akbar is to declare the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. And these words are such that when you say them, Allah subhanaw taala answers you when you say Subhan Allah, Allah says,

01:00:51--> 01:01:25

sadaqa you have spoken the truth you say Alhamdulillah Allah says so doctor, you have spoken the truth. You say la ilaha illa Allah, Allah answers you. He says so doctor, you have spoken the truth you say Allah, Allah replies to you, he says so doctor, you have spoken the truth. And then after that in a Hadees we learn you should sit alone with fiddley Allah forgive me, Allah what how many Allah have mercy on me along with zucchini, Allah give me sustenance. Because when you make this Dora Allah subhanaw taala says, I have done that meaning you will get forgiveness you will get mercy and you will get sustenance from Allah.

01:01:26--> 01:02:15

And to say these words is greatly rewardable. in Hades, we learn about, you know, different virtues, rewards that are associated with these words, and they are a means of forgiveness. They're a means of, you know, sins being erased. in Hades we learned that even if they are even if a person sins are as many as the form of the See, right, but when you say la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar Allah Subhana Allah will hamdulillah La hawla wala quwata illa Billah Your sins are erased, right? We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know once he passed by a tree that was dry in its leaves were completely dry. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam struck the tree,

01:02:15--> 01:02:34

the leaves fell down. Okay. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that saying Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, these words cause sins to fall from the slave, just as leaves fell from this tree.

01:02:36--> 01:02:41

Any, you know, when we are on it, when we really take an honest

01:02:42--> 01:02:58

you know, look at ourselves, we realize that many, many mistakes, you know, many, many shortcomings, there's many, many sins, what's going to become of me? How am I going to survive any? How am I going to improve?

01:03:00--> 01:03:54

You know, that guilt eats you up? that realization brings so, so much shame. And it's necessary that we bring our results out of that guilt and shame. Now that we feel arrogant over our sins and we feel secure despite our sins, no, but we turn to Allah. And we ask Allah for forgiveness. We mentioned his greatness, that he Allah, you are perfect. Right? You are the only one worthy of worship You are the greatest. Right? My sins are less than then your mercy, my my atrocities the crimes that I've committed the wrong that I have done. All of that is not hard for you to forgive. It's not big for you to forgive because you are the greatest Allahu Akbar. Right? So say these words

01:03:54--> 01:04:43

of wicked, and you will feel better, there are a source of forgiveness. And we also learned that they are a cure for stinginess for fear. Because in our heads, we learn that whoever is afraid to spend his money, whoever is afraid of the night that he should increase in saying Subhan Allah He will hamdulillah he will either in the Allahu Allahu Akbar, their means of entry into paradise. They are a shield between a person and hellfire. And when you say the words of the Quran, then these words of the Quran ascend to the heavens, alright? And we learned that they revolve around the throne of Allah, okay? And then they make a certain buzzing sound as if they are, you know, making

01:04:43--> 01:04:59

your mention. Okay, making the mention of the person who said these words. So continue to make Vicar of Allah through these words, so that you are being mentioned up in the heavens. Okay, close to Allah subhana wa tada and these

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

Words especially we should say after Allah Subhana Allah and hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar 33 times. And

01:05:08--> 01:05:48

he at the time of the JAL, we learned that, you know, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Sena mentioned about the great difficulty that the believers will experience and that they will have nothing to eat. So I shall do more on how to ask that, how will people how will the believer survive them, if they will have nothing to eat? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that what the angels survive upon? And what is that the spear that could be damaged daily. So, when even when you feel hungry, you know, sometimes when you're fasting, you feel hungry, start making because it will nourish you, it will sustain you. I'm not saying don't eat, when you when you can, and when you have

01:05:48--> 01:06:17

to, of course, you know that that food has its importance and its place. But the vicar of Allah also sustains you the way that you know, physical food cannot. And you know, sometimes you indulge in delicious foods, but it doesn't bring you that satisfaction you keep eating, you keep trying different different things doesn't bring you that satisfaction, satisfaction comes from the heart is content, right? So it is necessary that we

01:06:19--> 01:07:09

that we get that contentment through the Kabbalah. And the next Hadeeth is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about which words are the best. A you'll cut me off of bol. And he said, Those words which Allah has chosen for his angels and his servants, and what are these words so panela he would be handy he all that Allah is perfect, and all praise to Allah. And you are, you are basically when you say Subhana Allah, you are negating any imperfection from Allah. And when you mentioned his hand His praise, you are affirming His perfection. So there's two things going on over here. You are negating any imperfection from Allah. And you're at the same time you're also

01:07:10--> 01:07:57

affirming perfection for Allah or zoologia and you are declaring that he is not like his creation at all that there is nothing like him. So this is the meaning of Subhanallah he would be happy. Now we can say Subhan Allah and we can also say Alhamdulillah separately, then we can combine the two and say Subhan Allah He will be handy. Okay. Both are good to say Subhana Allah who will be handy he is also rewardable the carriers of the throne the angels that are near Allah, this is Subhan Allah he would be handy he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam participaron Allah He will be handy a lot as the Sahaba reported, and we learn that when a person says Subhana Allah He will be handy he any,

01:07:57--> 01:08:44

not only do they receive good deeds to the earth, good deeds, their sins are also erased. These words are light on the tongue. It's easy to say, but they're heavy in the scales, right? And when you say Subhan Allah healer Alimi will be handy. A tree is planted for you in paradise. The next Hadeeth is that the best worship is invocation of literally everybody who had Dora in another Hadees we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a DA who would arriba Dora is worship. Any the best form of worship is to supplicate to ask Allah subhanaw taala for something right and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that your Lord has said with the Rooney call upon me as the

01:08:44--> 01:09:03

gibler Come, I will answer you. So you know we we need to make the heart as well. Sometimes we think that worship is simply praying Salah, making that Vicar Alright, eating halal food, and you know, fasting when we're supposed to giving Zakat and sadaqah when we have to. And that's it.

01:09:04--> 01:09:16

ask Allah as well. You know, personally ask Allah personalize your dog. Right, because it is the essence of worship.

01:09:18--> 01:09:59

You know, Dora itself is worship and the Prophet sallallahu rzm described that the best worship is to make the raw It doesn't mean that because of this you don't pray Salah you don't do other acts of worship, of course you do that. But you should also make Dora now there's different ways of making Dora you know, all worship is is also called Dora because when you worship Allah, you're you're seeking something from Allah, you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for something or Allah subhanaw taala gives you something in return. So every act of worship in a way is an act of supplication. But then, Dora is also to you know, specifically

01:10:00--> 01:10:45

ask Allah subhanaw taala for something like for example, you say, Oh ALLAH forgive me, Oh Allah have mercy on me. And when you ask Allah, remember, this is a very honorable deed near Allah, you increase in your honor, near Allah, when you ask Allah with the creation, that's the exact opposite. The moment you ask for a favor, you fall in the eyes of the creation, right? They don't want you anymore. They distance themselves from you, they begin to avoid you, they feel like you're a burden. They don't like you anymore when you keep asking, right? But when you ask Allah, the more you ask Allah, the more

01:10:46--> 01:11:34

you know, special you become near Allah. So and we learned that there are definitely benefits a person, okay, against what has already happened and against what might happen in the future. So this is why always make Dora in regard to things that have happened already in ultimate regard to things that have not yet happened. And the person who does not ask Allah says no, I'm not going to make darker than Allah subhanaw taala becomes angry with him. Why? Because what is the reason for not asking Allah? It's either lack of faith that Allah doesn't, Allah will not listen to me. Right? Or it's, you know, lack of faith in Allah ability, right? Or it's bad assumption of Allah. So Allah

01:11:34--> 01:11:43

subhanaw taala is angry with the person who does not ask him and the prophets of Allah who already said I'm sad at the weakest of all people is the one who is too weak to make God.

01:11:45--> 01:12:31

Any making God is easy, okay, you don't really have to do much to make daura you can make draw, even when when laying down, you know, when you when you have a problem, and you want to bring yourself out of that problem, you do different things, right, you have to talk to someone, you have to exert some, you know, some some, some physical energy, you have to do something, have to take some action. But there are you don't really have to take any action, you can make your own one laying down. You don't even have to be in a state of widow. So even if you're feeling really weak, may God even if you feel like your hands are tied, you do not have any control over the situation. You cannot change

01:12:31--> 01:13:15

it yourself. You You You must make dada dada does not mean inaction though. Okay? No drop means you call upon Allah and you also do what you can. And the person who does not call upon Allah is the weakest of people. What are Yaga Bella and when a person is in difficulty, even if they don't believe in even if they, you know, make Sheikh, even if they associate partners with Allah, even if they have been, you know, forgetful of Allah, negligent of Allah, they have been doubtful about Allah all of their life, but when they're in difficulty, and they put their faith in Allah and they call upon Allah, Allah subhanaw taala answers them.

01:13:16--> 01:13:18

Right and this is one of the reasons why

01:13:19--> 01:14:13

you know it crema, Rotella horn who was the son of Abu JAL, right, he was fleeing makup and he was on a ship and there was a storm and there everybody made the offer to Allah alone. So it crema de la Martin, who realized at that point that you know, this is exactly what Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has been telling us to do. So then he went back and he embraced Islam. So Allah subhana wa tada listens to the door has of, of his slaves and the DA of the oppressed is definitely accepted. Even if that oppressed person is sinful. Okay? Any you could be a victim of abuse and you yourself are not perfect. Okay. But given that you are a victim, when you call upon Allah, Allah subhanaw taala

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

will hear you

01:14:15--> 01:14:59

Subhana Allah and when we make da we should also raise our hands. Okay. And and call upon Allah, because Allah subhanaw taala does not like to return you know, the, the hands of his slaves, empty. Allah subhanaw taala will definitely put something in those hands Allah will definitely give something to the servant who is calling upon the law. The next Hadith is about the best there are on the day of arafa the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best Dora is the day of arafa and the best words which I and the prophets before me said, are La ilaha illAllah who are the hula sharika the whole milk hula hula hamdullah, who are luckily Shea included.

01:15:00--> 01:15:45

So the day of arafah which hamdulillah is tomorrow milus panel thought it was the ability to take advantage of the state on this day. Yes. You know, of course those who are not at Hajj they they fast right because it is a means of forgiveness. But it is also a date of doras because the prophets of Allah who earliest time said hiatal Dora eo modified the best Dora is the day of profundity of arafa is relevant to people at Hajj and also the people who are not at Hajj. So people that had of course they make their eyes on the day of Rodolfo but even people who are not have had should make Dora on the day of offer. And and the best Vicar to say on this day is La ilaha illa Allah who at

01:15:45--> 01:16:26

the hula sharika they will call her who will handle her who are luckily Shia included. So what you can do is that you know throughout the day, as you are saying this, they could you know every few moments, ultimate Dora and as you're making Dora in your dog say this La ilaha illAllah who are the hula shuriken at the beginning of your door at the end of your door, you know make sure that throughout the day, you are saying this Vicar and you are also making girl. Then the next Hadeeth is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there is no door which any slave has made that is better than saying Allah in the local morava for dunya will appeal meaning the best thing

01:16:26--> 01:17:13

you can ask Allah subhanaw taala for is more fat in the world and the Hereafter, what is more often more offered is safety. It is well being okay. So we should be asking a lot that Allah grant me well being grant me safety in this life and also in the next and and well being safety includes forgiveness, okay, and added and it includes, you know health. It includes the you know the safety of your body, the safety of your wealth, the safety of your Amen, the safety of your mind, your children, your property, your loved ones. So, this is the best thing that we can we can ask Allah subhanaw taala for so this is a door that we should make. And among the you know, doors of morning

01:17:13--> 01:17:29

and evening is that there are Allahumma inni as a rucola theatre for dunya will. Well I asked you for our fear for wellbeing for safety in the world and in the hereafter. So look at how important this Torah is. That we have been encouraged to say this every morning and every evening.

01:17:31--> 01:17:53

Now the last Hadees we're looking at is about the best dar with meaning the best words of seeking refuge. And there are times when we feel afraid when we know we are in danger. So how do we seek refuge with Allah? How do we seek protection with Allah subhanaw taala and are these wieder and the Prophet sallallahu earning said I'm set to our dilemma obvious,

01:17:54--> 01:18:46

even abyss of journey, okay, that shall I not inform you of the best words of seeking refuge that those who seek refuge say any what are the best words the most effective words of of seeking refuge with Allah subhanaw taala and even our Abba said yes or messenger of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said say a call or a bit of follow up and call out the drop in nurse these two sodas, meaning these two sodas are the most effective in seeking refuge with Allah. So whether it is that you are you know afraid of pain of your pain, increasing your illness increasing your problems getting worse, and he whatever you are afraid of, you know sometimes you are afraid of people you're afraid

01:18:46--> 01:19:32

of meeting certain people you're afraid of, you know, making that phone call. You are afraid of you know going to a certain place, whatever it is that frightens you that worries you, that threatens you say call our Uber bill for local or Uber openness and fortify yourself this is the best way of seeking protection and of course you can save these sodas in the morning in the evening three times each you should save them you know after every Salah they are very effective in protecting yourself against evil eye and of course against shade on dangers that you know dangerous you don't know any whatever it is that you're afraid of the suitors will suffice you in sha Allah. One more thing I

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

want to mention is about the best part of the Quran, okay, which we can recite, for our protection for our healing for our guidance, any for the benefit of you know, our worldly life, our religion, our our afterlife, any comprehensive, comprehensively beneficial, okay, and this is suited to Fatiha

01:20:00--> 01:20:44

So if you think about it, the Quran begins with two little Fatiha. All right ends with color with the purple follicle, arrow, the openness and the color with the purple follicle or with a bit of finesse, excellent for protection and safety. And pseudo Fatiha is excellent for asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance for direction and also it is a source of healing. Right in the Hadees we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a man shall I not inform you of the best part of the Quran? And the man said yes, the Prophet salallahu earnings and recited Surah Fatiha, we learn in a Hadees that there is nothing like salted Fatiha and in nothing equivalent to it's similar

01:20:44--> 01:21:31

to it in the toe rot in the Injeel in a nothing like it has ever been revealed and it is also a source of healing. So, let us increase in our recitation of Surah Fatiha let us say it in Salah properly and otherwise also let us say for our healing guidance and for our protection and safety sudo alpha lock sudo to ness and otherwise also the best zyk ino Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Illa Illa Allah Akbar Subhan Allah He will be handy e la ilaha illa Allah Who are the hula Shri Karla homolka who hamdullah who are like Alicia in Kadir I hope you took notes on you know what the best words of decode are. Because you know, we can talk about these things we could listen to them,

01:21:31--> 01:21:58

you know, in lectures, but if we don't bring them into our action, then the benefit is not complete, you know, we haven't truly benefited them. So, let us be intentional about Vicar and let us be more conscious about the the record that we are making insha Allah Subhana colome will be handed a shadow Allah Illa illa Anta esto Federica Tobu la wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
