alone. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Welcome to the first episode of the power of vehicles. across these series of episodes in short, Allahu taala, we're going to be talking about zeker, about the virtue of remembering Allah, about the benefits of remembering Allah, about how we should remember Allah, and how we shouldn't remember Allah, about some of the things that we are required to do in our decoder, some of the things that were recommended to do some of the rewards of doing so we have a lot to talk about across the series of episodes about the power of the to begin in sha Allah, we're going to begin with an introduction. And in this introduction, we're going to
talk about what we need to do for our deeds to be accepted. Because there's no doubt that the vicar of Allah azza wa jal is from the most virtuous of actions, and the most beloved of actions to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, it ranks amongst the highest of all of the actions that a person can do in the religion of Islam. But whatever we action we do in the religion of Islam, whether it is Vicar, whether it is prayer, whether it is giving charity, whether it is whether it is any kind of action, whatever action we do in the religion of Islam, will not be accepted from us without two things. I mean, these two things that we want to talk about in this introduction in sha Allah, the
first thing that we need for our deeds to be accepted by Allah for our Vicar to be accepted by Allah is for our Vicar to be sincere for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And that means that our intention has to be right.
We know the famous Hadith with which an Imam Al Bukhari may Allah have mercy on him began his say that, indeed, actions are judged according to their intentions. And every one of you will have what he intended. So whoever's immigration is for Allah and His Messenger, he will be given the reward of that emigration for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, and whoever emigrates for a woman to marry, or emigrates, because of a worldly, something in the worldly life that he wishes to achieve, then he will be given the reward of that thing that he wished to emigrate for. So everyone's action will be judged according to their intention. Everyone's action will be judged according to that intention.
And Allah as a joke does not accept the deeds that are not sincerely for him alone. And we have a beautiful Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he narrates, from Allah as the regenerator Allah subhanho wa Taala says, an Alvin assura, care and schicke I am the least in need of any of those that are made partners with a lot of shit, I don't need your worship. I don't need you to worship me I don't, because Allah azza wa jal has no need of it. Then he, whoever it is, that makes a partner and the Hadees continues. Whoever makes a partner with me in an action, talk to who worship, I abandoned him, and I abandoned the sharing of those rights that he
has done the fact that he has shared those deeds with other than a lot as our agenda the fact that he was not sincere in his action for our last panel with Allah. So Allah azza wa jal does not accept the deeds of those people which are not sincere for him alone. And that means we don't do Vicar in order for people to see us. First to show off for us to look good in front of people. We don't do Vicar because our parents have told us to do it. We don't do Vicar
saw that it is said Mashallah this person is from other Kadena law hackathon was accurate from those men and women who remember a lot much that's not the reason why we remember Allah. But we remember Allah for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala for seeking the face of Allah azza wa jal. This is why we remember Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala addresses the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the end of Sora to Zuma and he says, what are called Ooh, here a lake. We have revealed to you Oh Mohammed, what Isla de la Mancha.
And to those who came before you let in Ashok, tell
me Look, if you had made a partner with Allah, we would have destroyed your deeds. If this is the deeds of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who came with his prophethood? Who came with everything that was good, who did every good deal it was possible to do.
If this is his situation, then what about us? Let in ashlock de la putana Amma Look, if you had made a partner with Allah, we would have destroyed your deeds. And this issue of intention is not an easy issue. It's not an issue that is simple in the minds of the people. It's something that the shaitaan will try to change you in and will try to manipulate you around. So you begin with a sincere intention. And then maybe you see that people are praising you for what you're doing. Maybe you see that a lot of people are copying what you're doing. And the shaytan comes to you and he begins to whisper into your ear and to say to you do a little bit more, make it a little bit better look good
in front of the people and so on and so forth. And so this issue comes in, there is something that can save us in terms of our sincerity towards Allah subhana wa tada and that is that we ask Allah and we make dua to Allah to make a sincere for him alone. And there are various two eyes that are authentically reported in the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding to ask Allah subhanaw taala that if we have done anything to associate a partner with him or if our intention has failed to keep us sincere, upon the right path and to forgive us for what we have not aware of any shot Allahu Allah over our course of discussion of Vicar, we will talk more about these
days, and and these types of Vicar that we can do. The second condition for anybody's deeds to be accepted for your Vicar to be accepted by a Lost Planet Allah is that it is in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith man amulet mln laser le e m Runa fahara. Whoever does an action, which is not in accordance with what we have brought with it with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will have it rejected. Now a person may come and a person may say, but my intention is sincere. I'm doing this just for Allah azza wa jal. I'm not doing it for anybody else. I'm not doing
it so that people say that I'm a great remember of Allah that I'm a pious worshiper that I'm an avid I'm I'm a wonderful person who's dedicated themselves to the worship of Allah, that I'm a Zahid, someone who has turned away from the dunya I'm doing it only for Allah. Surely that is enough. We say no, it's not enough. And we will give you an example of why it is not enough. In an authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there was a companion. And this companion he wished to sacrifice his aid. His old here is eat sacrifice before the eat prep. And we know the sooner is the sacrifice after the prayer. And the reason that he wanted to do it before the prayer
is because he wanted to feed the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was hungry. He saw that the companions were hungry. He saw that there hadn't been a lot of food around at the time, he was wished to give a service to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu it was said to be the first one to put food in the mouth of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of eat. Isn't this the most beautiful intention? Could we have an intention better than this intention? No. It's a beautiful intention from a noble companion. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came from the hookah and the
companion offered him this meat.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked what it was, he said, this is the sacrifice that I have done. And it was clear that he had slaughtered the animal and prepared the animal before the eat prayer. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam turned to him and he said, Sure, to kashia to lamb. It's nothing but meat. It has no reward in the sight of Allah. It's not going to be accepted by Allah azza wa jal, because it wasn't in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best intention, the most beautiful intention, but it wasn't in accordance with the Sunnah. And so it wasn't accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refused to eat it.
He refused to eat it. And then the companion showed his sincerity and the prophet SAW Selim made an exception for him and said, I will eat it from you, but I will not eat it from anyone who comes after you. Whoever does something is not in accordance with the sooner we'll have it rejected.
And likewise, we see the intention of those noble companions who the one who said that I think
Want to pray all night? I don't want to sleep. And the one who said I want to fast every single day and I never want to break my fast and the one who said I'm not going to Maui so that I can get closer to Allah. Look at the wonderful intention. Look at the beautiful intention. What happened when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard what they said? He said his famous statement, man Ravi bernsen natif Elisa Mini, the one who wants something other than my son now who turns away from my son who wants something different than the Sunnah is not for me. And this word, Lisa Mini is not from me. It's a very severe, severe statement. He is not one of my people. He's not one of my
followers. He's not a true, practicing believer as he should be. He's not from me, I'm not associated with him. He has nothing to do with me, simply because they had a great intention. But they didn't do it in accordance with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So when we go on to talk about this Vicar that we're going to talk about, and we're going to talk about all of the kinds of the Quran, sha Allah, and the virtue of Vicar and some of the confusion people have around it. We have to bear in mind that every single type of Vickers that we do, and every single type of worship that we do to come near to Allah subhanaw taala will only be
accepted with two things. It will only be accepted if it is sincere for Allah not for your mom and dad not to show off not for the other people not so they say it about you not so you appear to be a great person in your community. And it has to be in accordance with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is the meaning of the ayah in Surah to calf at the very end of salto calf, Thurman Kenyatta, Julia, Robbie, whoever wants to meet with his Lord, whoever wants to meet with his Lord folium and ameland salejaw let him do good deeds, while I usually could be a burden to be had, and let him not make any partner with his Lord, so it has to be sincere for
Allah and it has to be good, pious, acceptable deeds that are in accordance with the Sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's all we have time for in this episode in sha Allah. please do join me again in a future episode of the power of Vicar. Until then I leave you in the care of Allah. wa salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
