Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
wa salatu salam ala Abdullah he was a Saudi he Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge marine Amber back. So first of all, I would like to begin with praising Allah. I would like to begin by asking Allah to exalt the mention of Grant peace to our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to the administration of the masjid to the Shu, the Messiah, who are teaching here and leading the salah here
because Allah He they have really any they have gone out of their way to make it easy for us to be able to
deliver these talks by the permission of Allah azza wa jal so we ask Allah to make it heavy on the scale of their good deeds.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to teach us what will benefit us to benefit us with what he teaches us. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to increases in knowledge and to give us the ability to act upon it. My dear brothers and sisters the topic for today in sha Allah Huhtala is going to be around about 50 minutes long, give or take. So we're hoping to finish around about 830 BTC Allahu Allah Allah. I must admit I don't have a great
history of finishing my talks on time. But let's see what Allah azza wa jal makes easy for us. The topic for today's a very beautiful topic. Wala is a topic that brings the hearts close to Allah. And in reality, it is a topic that represents the core of your worship with Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a dua oh, god I gotta do.
It is a badass, this is what it means to worship Allah
dua This is what worship is. And this statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually reminds me of another statement that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made when he said Alhaji alpha, Hajj is alpha.
What does that mean that hatches Alpha ball of the Hajj the most important thing and the thing that represents the whole of the Hajj is alpha.
And he said a DUA, who are very bad dua This is what a bad is, this is what it is to worship Allah. Can we bring in evidence from the Quran for this? We can the statement of Allah azza wa jal in Surah Harford what call Rob boo como de Rooney STG bloco in the Larina stick be Runa and Roberta to say to Hoonah, Johanna, Delphine
and your Lord said Make dua to me and I will answer you.
My dear brothers who is this a promise from from Allah? Does Allah break his promise? In Allah Hello, Clifford May, Allah never ever, ever breaks His promise. And Allah promised us that if we make dua to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is going to answer us. Did he make this to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? No only because the word here in Arabic means all of you what Carla or bukem All of you order Rooney all of you make to add to me as Tesla comm I will answer all of you.
And he didn't say Oduro Yeah, Mohammed Osijek call upon Me Oh Mohamed, and I will answer you. But he said all of you, if you make to add to me, I will unseen
so nobody should ever ever think that I'm too lowly. Or that I am too sinful. Or that I'm too far away from Allah to make dua to Allah.
Because anyone who thinks this in reality has thought less of Allah wama cada Allah haka, Kateri, they didn't give Allah what he really deserves to be given.
They didn't do
Think of Allah in the way that Allah deserves to be sawed off.
Does that mean that you're not sinful? All of us are sinful. khulumani erdemir Hatha, all of the children of Adam frequently make mistakes all of us are sinful. But ultimately Allah azza wa jal R Rahman r Rahim Allah for Al Karim, Allah, the Most Merciful the restore of mercy, the one who always forgives the one who is the most generous and hate the one who is shy for a person when they raise their hands to him that he returns their hands empty.
Allah Subhana Allah Allah
will answer your DUA not because you are great, but because Allah subhanaw taala is the most great and that's why Allah Subhana Allah will answer your DUA. And then Allah says in Alladhina, yes, stick beyond those people who are too proud, too arrogant.
To do what an Ariba dirty
look at how Allah azza wa jal here uses the word a bad fall.
In the books of Tafseer, look up the word a bad to hear they all say do the word a bother here means do. So Allah uses the word a bad and the word do are interchangeably. Because dua is the core of the worship that you do.
Those people who are too proud to worship Me will enter Jahannam disgraced, those people who are too proud to make dua to me.
And that happens to people. It happens even to people who themselves they love Allah and they love Islam.
But sometimes shaytan whispers to them in different ways. And Shavon convinces them not to make dua to Allah.
Allah is not going to unsee
you're too sinful. You made too many mistakes, you're too far away.
Allah azza wa jal answered the dua of iblees when he said Rob be on villainy either yo Mubarak thrown my Lord give me respite until the day of resurrection. And if Allah azza wa jal answered, that you ask for for wisdom, not because of the not because of what he was asking or not because of the good of it and not because of the good of him. But Allah answered that to ask for wisdom that is with him, why will Allah azza wa jal not answer your DUA
we'll call her Abu Komodo Roni STG Blackcomb. You will Lord said to you make dua to me. He didn't say make to to anyone else. And Allah azza wa jal said, what Annelle messaggi that Allah He felt that Teddy Rumaila he had
the masajid belong to Allah.
So do not make to attack anyone except Allah. This word ohada. The scholars of Azula Philip, when they talk about this word, they make it from alpha or moon. The words that are general it means anyone whoever they are.
To make to Lally melachim, macabre Paulina beggin Musa, fatherland, anxiety Hema, to make to add not to a beloved Angel, not to a prophet that was sent, let alone anyone else. And if you wouldn't make dua to Jibreel, and you wouldn't make dua to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then there is nobody else that has any more virtue left for you to make to add to
the messaggi belong to Allah. So don't make to add to any one except Allah. And I have a little bit of homework if you're interested in this topic of the issue of making dua to other than Allah. Just look at the number of times Allah tells you in the Quran, not to make dua to anyone else, or blames the people who may do add to other than Him, for example, open up an index of the Quran, where they give you the words in the index and look up the word Do I
go through all the times the word dua is mentioned in the Quran? And look at the sheer number of times that Allah says about the people who may do it other than me, they may do out to those that don't benefit them and don't harm them. They may do are to others besides Allah, they may do out to those that don't hold anything within this world and they don't hold any power.
What is the connection to this? There's a connection to Allah azza wa jal in His Lordship, His names and attributes and their connection with dua. So the connection that I want here is many times when Allah
tells us about da, he refers us back to His Lordship.
Those that they make dua to instead of Allah, they cannot, they cannot do this they cannot do that they cannot create, they cannot sustain they cannot control. Why?
Because if we accept that Allah is our Creator, and our sustainer and our provider, the one who gives us life and causes death, the one who everything is in his control, and nothing happens without his permission.
Then what is the benefit in making dua to anyone besides Allah?
If we really believe that Allah subhanaw taala Allah is our Rob. Allah is our Holic. Allah is our Razzaq, the one who provides everything for us. And I didn't never heard a Muslim say that someone created me except Allah. Me I never heard a Muslim ever say, someone else created me. Never I never heard anyone who has any interest to Islam say, the prophet size and creative never.
And I never had a Christian say that Jesus created me. And he recited so to say, I never ever heard a Muslim say the prophets I send them sends down risk from the sky.
I never heard anyone from any group ever say that the prophets I send them controls what's in the heavens and earth?
Know that I hear them say about Jabril so if the prophet sighs and doesn't control those things, either his salatu salam May Allah subhanaw taala bestow upon him
the exaltation of his mansion and may Allah azza wa jal bestow peace upon him. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam, if he doesn't do those things, then certainly nobody else does. And if nobody does that, except Allah, then our do our why would we make dua to someone who doesn't control our life or our deaths or our risk or our creation?
That's why many many times Allah subhana wa Tada
mentions this when he talks about making partners with Allah. If you because Qureshi has to believe this right? He says two Quraysh
the one who sent down the rain from the sky, the one who brought out the vegetation from the ground, the One who created life and death. So why are you making dua? Or why are you making a partner with anyone, when you know that it is Allah who does all of those things? So there is a clear connection here.
And we know that all of us need Allah subhanaw taala
and Tummel for Cara Illa Allah you people are the ones in desperate need of Allah as for Allah, He is alpha near Hamid, he is the one who is free of all need and worthy of all praise. And again, the names and attributes the same thing. We don't know Muslim on the face of this earth ever said that, that anyone other than Allah is Allah and you will have meet
the one who is the one who doesn't need anyone, and everyone needs him. Nobody ever said it. So if Allah is the only one who is alchemy, you'd Hamid so Allah is the only one who needs us to who the only one who deserves for us doesn't need us the only one who deserves for us to make dua
to him because Allah doesn't need our worship.
But Allah deserves us to worship him. And Allah is the only one who answers our two. And my ujjivan motagua. Either
way, she was so wager I don't
hold alpha and out. Ala Humala. Calida Mata the Quran,
Allah says, Who is it that answers the dua of the one in desperate need?
And who is it that takes away the harm that happens to you? And who is it that makes you leaders on the earth? Is there any ILA with Allah?
Notice how Allah subhanaw taala connected that, who can answer you, no one can answer you. So there is nothing deserving of dua deserving of worship,
deserving of coming near to them.
Except Allah subhanaw taala
Allahu Akbar Allah, is there anything deserving of worship along with Allah? How little is it that they remember? So why is Allah deserving of worship, then he's the one that answers the DUA. He's the one that takes away the hum. He's the one that gives you what you want your authority and power and money and whatever it comes all from him. So if all of that comes from Allah, nobody deserves for us to make dua to them except Allah subhanaw taala
the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Abdullah Abbas
when he said to him Yahoo, in new or I limo kalimat young man, I'm going to teach you some words. And one of the things that he said either sir LTFS Allah, what is the interface there and Billa if you ask anyone only ask Allah and if you seek help from anyone only seek help from Allah and Allah azza wa jal took the same approach and same any connection between these things in sort of 230
Alhamdulillah he Robben Island in the URL here is this deadlock Elgin's all types of praise only belong to Allah the Lord of the woods?
Because he's the Lord who is the Lord?
A seydel harlot al Muda. They're a Razzie. Some of them say other things like that. And he's the one who is the master the controller and we're dead. They're the harlot. This is the Lord. Allah is the only Lord of the Worlds. R Rahman r Rahim Allah is the only one who is the most merciful who bestows that mercy upon whoever he wants from His servants. Allah is the only one who is Maliki oh me Dean.
This the Owner of the Day of of Recompense or in the in the more popular or the more commonly occurring Tierra Maliki of Medina, the sovereign of the Day of Recompense.
Allah is the only one. So then what does that mean for us? II cannot go do what he can Stein you alone I worship and You alone are asked for help meaning you alone I make dua to because Allah said in the loneliness the Quran and a bed at a bar that is to add the Prophet size and said do our word Eva the DUA is the core of EVA the essence of a bad
therefore, it is for Allah alone. II cannot but it is you alone that we worship what in your canister in in case someone said no, do others and come on the worship to ear canister in when we when we seek help we only seek it from you.
It did not sell out almost akin sort of attack itself is too this is from the virtue of Dr. By the way from the virtue of to art is that Allah began his book with DUA and concluded his book with two ah, do you ever think about that Allah began his book with dua Surah 230 It's a dua was the prophet Tada it ends with Amin means you don't need more proof than that any. It's a dua Surah Fatiha is one long two. And he concluded his Quran with cool I owe the villa Bill falak. And cool are all the Bureau of Venus, which is also a dua asking Allah to keep you save from the evils of the world and the darkness and the jinn, the shayateen and the magicians and the jealous person and the one that
whispers into your chest.
So Allah azza wa jal began his book with a DUA and concluded his book with a DUA
to show us the importance of calling upon Allah azza wa jal.
So, this is from the virtue is from the virtue of to Allah.
the statement of Ibrahim that Allah azza wa jal tells us about in the Quran, what art has he will come to Jerusalem in Dooney Allah what other rugby
I said Allah corner B to Robbie chakra here
Fela monetize Allahu mama i Bucha when I'm in June in LA, he will have will have an Allah who is how kawaii aku were coolin Johanna be
this amazing. Allah tells us whatever Rahim said, I have distanced myself from you withdrawn from you, and all those that you make dua to instead of Allah. Look at what he said, I have left you and all those that you make dua to instead of Allah. And I only need to add to my Lord, I hope that I will not be wretched because I when I make dua to my Lord, I will not be from the wretched. Look at what Allah said, when he distanced himself from them, and what they used to worship instead of Allah.
So in the first Iiar, Allah tells us the same thing. Ibrahim says I'm leaving you and the people you make dua to Allah says when he left them and what they worshiped. What does that tell us? That
DUA and worship are synonymous in this ayah.
Ibrahim says when I left them, and what they worshiped was what they may do are two besides Allah Allah says when he left them and left and what they worshipped besides Allah.
We gave him his hand and Yaqoob and we made each of them a prophet.
And Allah azza wa jal said oh do Rob back home. Tada one were Hosea in hula, you hit Bullmore Teddy
wala to FSI to fill out of the bag that is Slurpee her. Were there all who hold them? Well, Pamela in Rahmatullah hickory Berman and Marcin. This is in surah, two out of
Iowa number 55 256. I don't want to do just briefly for this particular point, is I just want to bring this iron up because there is a word in English that I want to double check. That translation of.
Allah azza wa jal said, Make dua to your Lord, in humility and privately,
in humility, and in secret and privately. He does not love the transgressors. Look at how Allah again associates transgression with the people who don't make dua to him, and don't make corruption on the earth after it has been made right, and make to add to him in fear and hope. Indeed, the Mercy of Allah is near to the doers of good that people have a son who strive for the highest level of excellence and goodness in what they do. Again, Allah ties Santa's making dua, goodness and righteousness and exceeding the level to making to Allah and His Rama. He connects it to the people who make dua they make to ours. How often out of fear so when you say oh Allah keep me away from the
fire. What is the thing that makes you want to keep away from the fire? Is the fear of Allah subhanaw taala?
And what is the thing that makes you crave for? For Jana? It's hoping Allah subhanaw taala when you call upon Him, somebody might say yes, but the righteous people don't call upon Allah and fear and hope. righteous people call upon Allah with love. Many people have this misconception. What do you say about the statement of Allah azza wa jal about the prophets all of them in our home can or you said your own I feel hierarchy where their own and our Raha Benoit hubba were can all enter Hershey? This destroys the idea that you should call upon Allah with nothing but love, neither should you have any fear nor any hope. Allah says the prophets he's talking about all those prophets. He
mentioned he mentioned a YouTube and he mentioned Uranus. And he mentioned and he mentioned a group of prophets in the solar which is sort of Columbia, the solar of all the prophets. And Allah says in the home candle, you said, you're gonna feel high, right? They used to rush to do good deeds, and they used to make dua to us in fear and hope.
Or in hope and fear rather than water harbor. They had a rug but a desire, a hope, and Rojava and they had they were scared. What can we learn a harsh hearing and they were submissive to us. Why? They were submissive because they made dua, in fear, and they made dua
We also need to talk about
some of the things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said with regard to do an
IV Horiba bra the Allah one narrated from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he said lay sashay on
at Cromwell Adela him in a DUA. There is nothing more noble
or virtuous in the sight of Allah than dua.
There's nothing more noble or more virtuous in the sight of Allah so agenne than two and we mentioned the statement of the prophets of Allah Vita who has sent them a DUA, when a bad day really is the essence of a battle.
What about our need
The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said In another Hadith of Abu Hurayrah, narrated in the Muslim Imam Ahmed an intermediate from the merger others that he said min Nam yedder Allah
mela major Allah
Subhana hollybeth Ali, who ever doesn't make dua to Allah Allah becomes angry with him.
Whoever doesn't make dua to Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada becomes angry with him, but we are in desperate need of calling upon Allah azza wa jal
from this is the beautiful Hadith that we must mention absolutely we must mention it. And this is the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in which he said that Allah said yeah a birdie call no combine alone in lemon Hideto festa Dhoni Attica My servants all of you are misguided except the one that I have guided. So asked me to guide you and I will guide you.
Yeah, a birdie. could look come on in lemon at times.

You're a baddie in a comb to the owner the lady one 101 outfit of the Nova Jimmy and festival Phil Rooney Alfred lecom My servants you make sense in the day in the night and the day and I forgive all sins, so ask me to forgive you and I will forgive you

He said, All My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the men of you and the jinn Have you all stood on the same plane. And every one of you asked me for everything they wanted.
And I gave everyone what they wanted, it wouldn't take away from what I have, except like a needle that is dipped into the sea, except like a needle that is dipped into the sea and this is from the desperate need that we have of Allah. We need Allah to feed us to clothe us to guide us we need Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us. And we get that when we ask Allah subhanaw taala for it and if you ask Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will
and we said, the statement of Allah azza wa jal will call Abu Komodo Rooney as Digiplex. If you make dua to me, I will answer you and we mentioned the iron and managerial Muqtada. Either Dan who is it that answers the one in desperate need, when to is made to them. But now my dear brothers, it makes sense for us to cover some of the etiquettes of making dua, and from the etiquettes, which I'm going to talk to you about, is from is really a big topic in the topic of dua.
And that topic is the topic of a tell us that is seeking a means of nearness to Allah.
And Allah azza wa jal commanded us were better who either he was sila seek a means of nearness to him. But that means of me and as I had a question, or something for you to think about, without talking about any of the means of Talisman. Is it possible from just our knowledge of Islam in general, that this statement of Allah telling us to seek a means have nearness to him means that we can get near to him in any single way that we want? Or does it have to be restricted by some rules and regulations? Everyone, every single Muslim, regardless of where they come from, they have to agree that it has to be restricted. Why? What about if I
lie la carta, Allah Who Dalek May Allah never make it happen. Or if a person put an idol on the table and sought nearness to Allah through the item, every Muslim regardless of which place came from which background they would say this is making a partner with Allah Allah, Allah will see seek refuge with Allah from that.
But didn't Allah say seeker was sila so can I not seek our sila through an idol? Everyone would say no, you cannot seek over sila throw it
because Allah has restricted it. So we all agreed all of us together, that there have to be some restrictions in tell us. And we also agreed there has to be towards certain Schottky a type of tawassul, which is shipped. So, for example, if a Christian says, which many of them do, I don't believe that ASA created the heavens and the earth, nor do I believe that he controls life and death, but I seek nearness to Allah through him. You would say this is our solemn shared key you made share with Allah, you made a partner with Allah you put ASA as a partner with Allah. So we all have to agree regardless of what we've heard. And regardless of how we make dua, we all have to
agree that tawassul is restricted by the rules of the Sharia.
And we also have to agree that there are some examples of tawassul which could reach the level of schicke. Like the person who makes the was sutra idol. I've had conversations with Hindus more than once in a dour perspective, or in a Taoist situation, where they said to me, we swear to you that we only believe in one God who created the heavens and the earth. And all of these idols that we turn to all of it is just our sole means of nearness to God. So we all agree there has to be to a sort of shaky tie. What's the difference then? What's the dabit? What's the fog? How can you tell me? Tell me now explain to me what's the difference between tawassul which is mush ru and tell us
like what's the difference? The hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu anha
and the Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim the wording of Muslim is Wattman amla I'm an Elisa Ali here I'm Rona, for whoever, whoever does an action that is not in line with our affair any our sooner it will be rejected.
So now we have agreed that if a person's tell us some content shake is not accepted. All of us agreed that the idol worshiper that tawassul is not accepted. And we also agreed because we all believe in what the prophets I seldom said that if we do something that goes against what he did, it will be accepted. So now we've agreed there has to be a certain shared key and to a certain degree, there has to be a toaster which reaches shake and also a tower sewage goes against the Sunnah.
And that will be rejected by Allah, even if it doesn't reach ik, but if it goes against the Sunnah, it's also going to be rejected by Allah. Therefore could we say that any tower so we find a clear evidence for in the Quran and the Sunnah we could use it but that tell us so that we don't find in the Quran and the Sunnah we should keep away from it out of the fear that it becomes to a soul which is shake or tawassul which goes against the Sunnah.
Therefore, let us look at that our soul that comes in the Quran and the Sunnah. And this is very, very simple. The first one and the most obvious, is coming near to Allah through His names and attributes. Right?
When he let him smell her snap Federer who behind
Allah has the most perfect and beautiful names. So make dua to Allah using those names.
And we need an example I don't want to I don't want to just give a theory. What about the dua of Ibrahim Ismail are a better Taco Bell Mina in Nikka Anta simulium Our Lord accept from us, you are assuming the one who hears everything Eileen, the one who knows everything.
Played we said a small sliver names and attributes. What's the ruling about DUA and Allah's attributes? For example, Allah's honor,
how can we make do with that? Do we say for example, yeah, is that Allah?
Or honey, for example, or your Rahmatullah? Honey? We don't say it right? We don't make dua to the attribute. But we make it with the attribute to add to the name we can make because the name is the name of Allah, right? The attributes we don't separate it from Allah by making it look like it's something different. So we don't say for example, ja Kola, Mala or honey, or ja Rahmatullah unfairly. But what we say is, Oh Allah, I ask You by Your mercy. I asked you by your resume, I asked you by
Kelly Mati Lai, Tama, your perfect words, your perfect speech. All of these came in examples came in the Sunnah, that we know them all the time. Yeah, examples came in the Sunnah for all of these.
a person sees for example, our URL will be Kelly Marti law he Tom Martini Cherie McCulloch, I seek refuge through all
With the Perfect Words of Allah in it he didn't make dua to those words they made to our with those words, and he or Allah, through your perfect words I asked you to keep me safe from the evil that you created.
Or the statement of the person who makes to our Bure medica a study by Your Mercy, I seek your help.
Or I see your aid.
Why seek relief from you by Your mercy and be your medical so we don't make dua and say Rahmatullah but what we do say is Bill Matica by Your mercy by your perfect words and all of the attributes they get that bat on the front right by your bureau Hermetica BK Liberty law by your words and by your that answers the question the other day that the person asked about, can I make dua by the Quran
so I tried to find the two other was mentioned. There is one narration where it's mentioned someone asked the question, there is one direct narration where it's mentioned when a person finishes the Quran.
But the key thing is that a person asks Allah through the Quran, so if someone says for example, or Allah,
I ask you by the fact that I finished this Quran or I asked you by this Quran, to have mercy on me, to to give me Jana to forgive me my sins. There is nothing wrong with this as long as they're asking Allah by it because we know the Quran is Kalam Allah virome o'clock it's the uncreated speech of Allah subhanaw taala so you can say Allah Maha Neville Quran or Allah have mercy on me through the Quran.
They say second one is to remember the Google the blessings of Allah upon you.
There was one that I was thinking of.
Yeah, to remember the blessings of Allah upon Rob because it's a 20 minute MOOC where I left any Mintel with a hadith file to summarize what he will have until Wednesday evening do dunya will our hero
telephony Muslim man will help me to solve a
perfect example. Use of Allah tells us in this to our he begins by mentioning the blessings My Lord you he mentioned Allah has named my lord, my lord, you have given me from my kingdom and you have taught me You have given me Kingdom any kingship. You have taught me how to interpret dreams, the Creator of the heavens and the earth you are my wheeling not in the dunya and akhira caused me to die as a muslim This is the dua to a funny Muslim man caused me to die as a muslim while Haqqani was swallow him and attach me or put me join me with the righteous
tawassul is to make tawassul to Allah through mentioning your situation and your difficulty. Allah loves for you to mention your difficulty. What did yaku say Allah told us in the Quran he said in NEMA Eshkol Bessie were Hosni Illa Allah, I only complain of my grief and sorrow to Allah. And I know from Allah what you don't know.
And some of the scholars they call this an inky SAR beignet de la subhanaw taala. showing yourself to be broken before Allah begging Allah, Allah azza wa jal loves for you to beg him.
Allah azza wa jal loves for you. He loves for you to to begin
there is a Hadith like that.
I like that make beg Allah azza wa jal with yodel Jalali with a cron
light is no no rewashing I remember for it is a little ha
That's why I remember it. Let's check the wording of it. There might be more than one wording of it.
Let's see if I can find it.
I live though I found that with that wording,
but I thought there's another word in the mentions a little harsh, but we'll come back to it. Calling upon Allah azza wa jal and begging Allah subhanho wa Taala
they call it begging Allah azza wa jal making showing your need for Allah subhanaw taala
the fourth one, mentioning your righteous deeds, Rob benna Inanna mana fulfill Lana dono Bella, my Lord, we have believed so forgive us our sins. Did that make sense? You ask Allah by your good deeds, we remember the stories the people of the cave
the story of the people of the cave, that they each one of them mentioned a good deed and made to our to Allah and slowly the cave opened.
mentioning what you want from the outcome of your DUA, like the statement of Ibrahim that Allah tells us in the Quran, Rob bene Lee you cream salah,
or Alive place from my family in a valley that has no vegetation,
my lord, so they will perform the prayer further if it hasn't been a nurse. So make a group of the people that we either humans or communism or not, and give them from the fruits, so they may be grateful. So he mentioned two things he mentioned a dua to Allah at the beginning of the DUA, he asked Allah to make this to come true so that they could perform the prayer. And in another
part, he asked for Allah to make them so that Allah would make them grateful.
And from this is
and this is the sixth one is to ask someone who is alive and present, to make to offer you and there is no harm in this as long as you don't make it a habit that you do all the time. There is no harm
asking Allah azza wa jal by going to someone and saying, he'll carry make to ask for me, but their condition of this is the person must be
alive. We don't ask the dead and they must also be present. We don't ask the one who is God who is absent from us any that we are like, you know someone across the other side of the world, for you say to them, my dear brother made to ask for me. But this is not good to make a habit of too much. And if you look at the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu they didn't use to make
a habit of this
too much and they didn't use to admit to ask the prophets as in every single day you don't see Buhari a Muslim full of the Sahaba saying make dua for me make to ask for me. But they asked him sometimes and other times, they didn't.
From the fundamentals of what makes a person's to are accepted is for a person to be a person of an emotion with taqwa,
your Eman, your faith and your taqwa in the sense of your obedience to Allah. Why? Because in the Hadith men add any religion for them to hope in how to whoever shows enmity to a beloved servant of Mine.
I declare war upon him. In this hadith, Allah azza wa jal mentions the beloved servant and he mentions whether inside any narrow Korean if he asks me, I will certainly give him so this beloved servant his dua, generally speaking is accepted. Who is the beloved servant? Allah told us really three things about the beloved servant the first thing he said Allah in Alia hola hola. Hopefully la him what to whom you examine a Latina um, and where can we tackle the beloved servants of Allah they are the people who there is no fear on them nor will they grieve that people who
believed and used to have Taqwa. So belief and Taqwa in the Hadith men if anybody yet Allah azza wa jal tells us about the person who does the thorough if they do the obligatory deeds, while I as we get a call
Robert Lamb no awful Hatter or hipper and the person keeps on doing the voluntary deeds until Allah loves them. So, they start with the obligatory deeds and they build up upon the voluntary deeds.
So this if we put it all together Eman and Taqwa and building upon the obligatory with the voluntary deeds. This is what takes for persons to add to be accepted from this is also having good thoughts of Allah azza wa jal, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said earlier Allah were unto MOOC University jab, make to add to Allah while you are sure
that Allah azza wa jal
will answer you. And Allah subhanaw taala said in the Hadith codici, an angel one, the IDB and as my slave thinks of me
It's also very important that we are sincere to Allah in our dua. We know the famous Hadith enamel Atmel orbignya to your actions or according to your intentions, but in America limited in Manoa and everyone will have what they intended. Having an attentive heart
and from the very important things that we must be careful of that prevent a to art from being accepted, is the issue of our risk. The issue of the purity of your sustenance and the correctness of the job that you do and the income you earn and how you spend it.
The prophets I mentioned a man that Corrado Jhulan your three Lucifer. He was an hour long journey. Ashoka. He was dusty and disheveled. You have moved to a day here last summer he raised his hands to the sky. He said y'all I'll be out up my lord, my lord. What was his problem? His food was haram.
String was haram. clothing was haram he was nourished on haram, for anos to juggle he then IC o Kumbhakarna sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how will Allah answer that dua. So growing up upon haram, being nourished upon it, eating it, drinking it, wearing it, living it,
earning it and spending it, are reasons for a person's to add to be rejected.
It's very important that we try our best to take our dua from the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them
this is for two reasons really. There are two very, very important,
The first important reason in following the Prophet sallallahu
is that if we go away from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our dua might not be accepted. We mentioned the Hadith min, Amira, Anna, Lisa Ali Amona, for wallet, and we don't want our dua to be murdered, to be rejected. So we try to stick to the words and the things the Prophet sighs did. Yes, he did allow some degree of flexibility in the words of to ah, but always his words, everyone agrees his words are going to be better than ours. So what you should do is, if you look in the words of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, when you find it, to ask for that in there, use it.
And don't go away from it. Because it's going to be better and more likely to be accepted than anything that you could say. And if you don't find it, add something from yourself in the words that is sensible and limited, but be careful of one thing. And that is going over the limits. When it comes to do.
Going over the limits, many times people by accident,
they go over the limits that are set by
by Allah azza wa jal like that Sahadi who famously said, Oh, Allah give me my punishment in this life. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw him and he was completely destroyed, broken. And he said, Did you make to offer something the Sahaba said, Yes, I asked Allah to bring me all the punishment in this life, said she would not be able to do it. And he taught him how to ask Allah azza wa jal. So using the words of the Prophet sighs and keeps you away from
the issue of attack do going over the limits earlier today in the issue of do going over the limits that are set by Allah azza wa jal, and at that going over those limits, in the topic of do
so when you learn from the profit side, so not only do you learn how to make two or you also learn the etiquettes of dua,
and sometimes people go over the limit set by Allah in many different ways, from the ways that I saw people go
over the limit set by Allah is, for example, going into too much detail in what they're asking Allah for instead of asking Allah for something, and and putting your trust in Him to give you the best for you, for example, when someone wants to get married
for example, wouldn't it be better to say a lot better herbal and I mean as well as you know, overreacting or Kurata
which I know the mood Tokina Imam, give us a wife, children who will be a pleasure to my eye. And make me an example for the pious. Instead someone says, Oh Allah,
allow me to get married to this person and that with this description and this situation and the problem is that the person doesn't know if that's good for them or not. If you want to be so specific, make istikhara make his the car and say Oh Allah, I'm thinking of marrying this girl from this thing and this thing and this thing and this thing, but better you ask Allah better I'm not saying it's not always forbidden. But sometimes people go too far.
Like saying Oh Allah, I asked you for a place in this particular
on the right hand side of paradise. There's some reports like that, Oh Allah, I asked you for a place that is exactly in this place of paradise. So why would you not just say that oh Allah I asked you for those will Allah Milla Jana for for those who Allah All I asked you for Jana. But sometimes people are very, very, very specific and very, very detailed without knowing Sometimes you ask what doesn't benefit you. You ask Allah for something that doesn't benefit you or ask Allah for haram.
happen sometimes people ask Allah for haram. And there are people making dua, or Allah let this girl notice me and so on and so forth. And he may come to ask for something that is haram. Or they may come to ask for something that doesn't benefit them.
They're asking Allah for something that doesn't benefit them. So be careful about this particular issue.
From the etiquettes the prophets lie some of us is to begin with the praise of Allah.
And you don't have to do in every door. But it's a nice habit to begin with the praise of Allah. And then once you began with the praise of Allah to finish to come or to to go second with sending Salah and salaam upon the Prophet sallallahu Allah who was
one of the companions asked, Should I make this in all of my DUA
and if you do this, Allah subhanaw taala will take care of us to face you for all of your concerns and all of your needs. So to send Salah and salam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to praise Allah azza wa jal, these are often the etiquettes. The etiquettes of dua from the etiquettes of dua are raising the hands, but raising the hands just like facing the Qibla, both of them are etiquettes of dua, but we can divide this into three groups. Times when the Prophet SAW Selim raised his hands normally.
Okay? Times when he extended his hands all the way up, and times when he never raised his hands at all.
So let's give these three times and examples, examples where he raised his hands Hi, Alice, this car when he was asking Allah for rain, and he will raise his hands so high they would see underneath his armpits, the whiteness of his armpits from how high he would raise his hands in his discord.
From the times that he never raised his hands. For example, it's not reported that he ordered the Sahaba raise their hands in the job market. For example, except for St. Scott, if the Imam makes to ask for its discuss, some of the scholars said you can also raise your hands if you ask Allah for rain. Also, it's not reported the Prophet sighs I'm used to raise his hands after the Salah. Typically, there is no harm in a person on a one off situation. They remember something they wanted to ask Allah. They say Allah after Salah is no issue, but this habit of raising the hands after the Salah. It wasn't something the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam himself used to do. So some people
said yes, but raising the hands is good. We agree. But you have to distinguish when did he raise his hands normally? When did he raise his hands high? And when did he not raise them at all? And so we copy that in our in our self. And of course, if someone brings a hadith for something and hamdulillah if they don't bring a hadith for it, then
then there is no any there is no harm any a person if they don't have a hadith or something and they have to stick to what they what they know.
It's always recommended to make dua to Allah in a state of Tahara. And it's always recommended, as we said, to call upon Allah and fear and hope and to remember who it is that you are calling upon. It's also a very important habit that we teach people not to say in sha Allah in dua you know, the Prophet SAW Allah Who
alayhi wa sallam forbade that saying in sha Allah into, because when you say in sha Allah, it's like you're saying, Oh Allah, if you give it to me, that's good. And if you don't give it to me, that's also good. That's in sha Allah and whatever you want if you want to give it to me give it to me if you don't want to give it to me, don't give it to me. It shows like a lack of, you know, dedication and seriousness. Instead say you're Allah give me and if Allah gives you, He will give you if he doesn't, he won't, but still you make dua with your full heart and with everything in your heart.
Realize who you're asking, you're not calling upon one who is deaf or absent. So you don't need to scream and rage, scream and cry and wail. If you cry naturally, that's fine. We know that one of the people who will be shaded under the Throne of Allah when there's no shade, except his is the person who remembers Allah when they're alone for Fallbrook, Aina and it's I shed tears but this deliberate wailing like sometimes you see in Ramadan, they bring you know, it's bringing imam who naturally Christ no problem, but they bring someone to wail you know, at the front, just because the person is known for like wailing I've stood behind people making dua in taraweeh
you just like complete wailing and you cannot hear anything, it's just screaming and wailing. You're not calling upon one who is deaf or one who is absent.
From the etiquettes we learned from the Prophet SAW i Seven is repeating with two or three times from the etiquettes we learned is to make to ask yourself and then other people. For example, if you really sincere you know, sometimes people say Oh Allah, May Allah guide you. But if you want to be really sincere, why would you not say for example, her daddy Allah Yak, May Allah guide me, and May Allah guide you. And that shows you're really sincere and not like just trying to get under their skin and insult them. And so it's nice when you make to make to ask for yourself and then making to ask for people who are absent. When you say do ask for your brother or sister when they're not
there. What does the angel say? Mean? And may you have the same well I can miss it and may you be given the same. making dua for the Ummah, is also from the sunnah to ask Allah to forgive. For example, in the Quran, we find the dua of Ibrahim the two I've known, both of them mentioned and what we know and what we know that all ALLAH forgive all the Muslim believers and all the Muslim female believers, all the men and all the women in the drive north and the solenoid do have Abraham in Surah Ibrahim, making dua for the believers making dua for them Yokoyama, making to ask for them to be forgiven for their sins and some of the Hadith indicate that you will get reward for every
believer. Some of them said there's a weakness in it but some of them said you will get a reward for every believer that that applies to
not just making to add in difficulty, to hardware of Allah Allah if you're Raha Erica, fish should come to know Allah, when things are easy and Allah will answer you and be there for you and things are difficult.
As for Allah answering your two and this is what we're going to conclude with inshallah to Allah, very briefly, maybe two, three minutes more in sha Allah. First of all, there are three ways that Allah azza wa jal can answer your DUA, he may give it to you immediately, or he may delay it for you into the hereafter or he may remove a calamity from you, that was going to happen to you otherwise. So Allah is generally give it to, you may ask Allah and Allah may give it, it may be that Allah azza wa jal gives you in the Hereafter, it may be that Allah azza wa jal removes a calamity from you because of the DUA that you make to him. And that's why we should never think bad of Allah. Never
think badly. Never think my daughter hasn't been answered. How do I know? Maybe that too I asked Allah for a new car and maybe your will Kiama You about to be thrown into Jahannam and the dua for your new car comes and saves you much rather be saved from Johanna that have a new car you don't know. A person doesn't know.
Perhaps Allah subhanaw taala will remove a car crash that was gonna happen to you? Because you asked for it. And you're sat there we're gonna why Allah doesn't give it to me and get Subhan Allah Allah is giving you and giving you and giving you but Allah is that Latif Allah is subtle in his gift very quickly, times and situations where a person's do is accepted and we're just gonna give them in bullet point form so that we don't take too long.
First of all, we want to talk about a particular
any time or two particular times. Let's talk about just before the federal prep
in the last year of the night,
as Allah azza wa jal said we're bill as highly home yesterday alone. They asked in Allah's forgiveness in the last third of the night and
The prophesy some said yen zero Rabona Tabata Hannah Kula Leila T Nicholas Illa sama dunya Hain Epcot full of the latest AFI.
He said your lord bless it an exalted descends to the lowest heaven in when there is a third of every night remaining and he says many of the Rooney who is making to an attorney for SDG with a woman Yes, ellonija are clear, who is making, asking me for something so I can give them what my Estelle Phil were may Estelle filling who is asking my forgiveness stuff, so I can forgive them.
Also the time in July, there is a time why Chava BrdU. A little higher. The Profit System is very small. He does the hands very, very small time in Joomla on the day of Joomla, when Allah doesn't leave a person's two hour without answering it. In the otter, who ear Allah will give him that to FISA law, you are fickle, her abdomen Muslim called mo new soleus and Allah to Allah Shia Illa Allah Who here there is no there's a particular time, no Muslim person gets it except that Allah Subhana Allah, when he's asking him, Allah will give him what he asked for. And the best that said about that time is that is the time just before mutliple
or between Assad and Margaret in that somewhere in that time, or it's the time when the Imam sits down in the member or it's during the time of the hook by generally these are some of the best things that are said about it make to earn all of those times.
The person who's oppressed the traveler, the one who is fasting, the one in desperate need, these are all times in which a person or situations in which a person's due,
can be accepted. And indeed there are other times also but we are a little bit ourselves short on the issue of time. But one of them I wanted to highlight for you which many people don't know about many people fall short in is between the Adhan and the economy.
The Prophet SAW Selim said the hadith of Annecy, Malik adieu Aquila, you're ready to banal as anyone your karma federal, do I between the adult and the karma is not rejected. So make to add that time when the rain falls, and so on and so forth. And there are many examples we have given quite a detailed lecture on dua, which I think came to light a few hours with on El madrasta Maria so AMCU it's on the YouTube channel, it's public, you can go to YouTube type in A and AU. And you can type in call upon me in the search for the channel. It's called call upon me and I will answer you, and it's about 12 Half an hour. Lectures is more details more Heidi's more evidence as a sha Allah, but
inshallah we should all be looking for these specific situations and one of them the last one we can mention is oppression. But today that I will tell you keep away from the dua of the oppressed person. There is no hijab between it and Allah there's no barrier between this to and between Allah subhanaw taala. So this is something shout out to Allah that we can all implement and think about and learn and practice. And this lesson is shouldn't be theoretical, it shouldn't be that we took a theory and we Okay, the DUA was accepted as this, this and this and it's for us to practice it. And we practice it by asking Allah subhanaw taala. And how old are you? And I gave a hotpot on the topic
of Allah's Greatest Name, I think it's on the table, YouTube channel, table center in Cape Town, on Allah's Greatest Name, but the strongest three opinions is that it's the name of Allah, or it's the name of Halal karoun. Or it's every name of Allah that contains many, many meanings in it instead of one specific meaning. These are the best three things that said about it. So you say Allah, Allah Heyoka yawns generally when we ask Allah subhanaw taala to benefit us with what we have heard, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from those people who hear what is said and follow the best of it. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for sincerity, we ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from us.
This is my last presentation here in Durban since my last presentation, probably low item in here in South Africa in general until next time, sha Allah. So it has been a really wonderful experience. We just like to again, ask Allah azza wa jal to reward all of the people who were involved in that and all of the people who supported it and the people who came to listen, and Allah subhanaw taala is the one we depend for this. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is able to do all things. That's what Allah azza wa jal made easy for me to mention. I once again we say if in any time in this trip, I said something that was correct and true. That's the blessing of Allah azza wa jal and His mercy
and if I said something that was wrong, or a slip of the tongue and it happens when I'm trying to say 50 Hadith in 30 minutes it slips sometimes. I
Ah so if it happens then that is my mistake inshallah we will correct we put corrections on the video in sha Allah and Allah azza wa jal and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have nothing to do with my mistakes. That's what Allah made easy for me to mention Allah knows best. Wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he also happy HMI
does that work?
