An Amara in a hot tub radi Allahu anhu on submit to Rasul Allah, he sort of love why they would sell me a hole in the mallamma. Lubin yet what in the Malika Lee Manoa fan and candidate he dropped to eat a lot he was a Sunni he but he dropped to Ito law he wrote our Sunni he won in Canada can t draw to the dunya you see bohat are immortal 18 are in Milan in yen give her for he draw to who Ilana Hadji LA LA and that's for a while who will Buhari you are Muslim? Alright, so
we're gonna go through the benefits of this hadith today or you know the importance of this hadith First of all, so, this Hadees it has a huge importance in the deen of Islam as spoken about darlin by the amount of Islam. So Amanda Shafi Raj mala he said that this hadith is like one third of knowledge. That's how much this hadith you know, I should have explained the Hadith By the way, that was the Hadith regarding the nia. This is called the Hadith of the nia. Right. So it's, you know, all actions are by their intentions, which we did. We went through the explanation of the wording of the heartbeat last week. And now today we're going through the we're going through what we can get
out of the huddle. So in Emma Sheffield Rahim, Allah He said, this hadith is one third of knowledge. And in fact, it enters into 70 subjects from the subjects of Africa.
And imagine I met Rahim Allah, He said that will soon al Islam are the foundations of Islam
are based primarily on three Hadees the three main Hadith that you could base the whole of Islam upon him. So he mentioned this Hadith, in the mela mela via the net that all actions are by their intentions. Also the hadith of Buddha, the Hadith that mentions about innovations. And then the other Hadith is in Valhalla Libyan war in El Hama begun, but Verily, the Hillel is Cree and the Haram is clean, which we're going to go through that Hadith like you honestly to bearclaw this book is an amazing book. Like it really gives you a full understanding of Islam in a way that a lot of courses do not give you that understanding. That's what I love about this book so much. Okay, so
from the importance of this, Heidi
Eman have an mohabbatein amendment Buhari began his book, he began his surgery with this hadith. And he made it the first Hadith even though it doesn't relate to the next chapter. The next chapter after this is the chapter on unlocking which is the revelation. Okay, that has got nothing to do it's not related to anything to do with a Nia does it? Okay, so.
So what amendment Bahati Rajma law is indicating when he began, you know, his book with this Hadith, that it's a proof to show that Allah in that knowledge, which is the aim of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, which he's about to give when he you know, he's the he right? that it needs the nia.
Like in order to receive the knowledge of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you have to have the nia. Right, just as every action and deed needs a nia.
Now many of the scholars they followed Imam and Bahati in doing this, from them was a man and now where you Rahim, Allah when he began an out of Bahrain when he began these 40 Hadith with this Hadith, to show that every deed cannot stand. And this it's upon the righteous Nia, like you have to have this insignia. So this is what the author Rahim Allah wanted for himself like for even for him, he's also reminding his own self, and also for every reader to purify their intention for this date. And this is why this hadith is of the utmost importance. And this Hadith,
we can call it the hadith of a Nia, we can call it the hadith of a Nia and from
from the requirements that is required, like what are the conditions in order for any deed to be accepted by lots of hands, Allah these two conditions that you have to have in order for any date to be accepted by loss pantalla Does anyone know what those two conditions are?
And yes, good. Well, that's something different.
That like when you're already a Muslim, so the first is sincerity. And the second should be upon the Sunnah of the prophet so like it should be upon the guidance of Allah and His messenger. You can't just come make up your own act of worship and say I'm sincere and I want to be accepted.
That's the point which we'll we'll talk about that because Another handy thing, this book talks about that aspect. Okay? So
so this is what we're talking about here the presence of the NEA which is sincerely for a loss of pantalla. All right, now we go to what's called Mr. l l Hadith, which means the matters relating to the title, the benefits we can take out of it. So this hadith is from the first and foremost of its Messiah. It shows the importance of the Neo obviously, the number one thing we take out of this hadith is it shows us the importance of anemia,
because it shows how the profits that are loaded Sinan tied deeds to anemia.
And it shows that deeds are not correct except by a Nia lock so your deeds will not be correct except by a nia. And the deeds won't also be complete except by a nia. And they won't be accepted by lots of pantalla except by the nia. So this is how this hadith is showing us the importance of a nia. So basically, you know, a person's Hajj a person's prayers a person's a cat will not be correct, without a nia.
All right. The second thing we can take as well from this is that the reward that a person receives for their deeds is also according to a Nia right there the reward that a person gets
for their deeds is according to a nia. Now to give you an example of that,
when a woman goes, she's at home and she she thinks it's time to pray, I need to go and pray because it's the prayer time allowed. Allah has commanded me to pray. So she's doing that from thought in that she's doing that as obedience to Allah, isn't it because she knows Allah commanded her to pray. So she goes and prays because that's from her Nia Yani for obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.
But then there could be another woman, she's with a group of people. And you know, she doesn't normally pray but because, you know, she feels embarrassed that they know that she doesn't pray. So she just praise because they're praying, or, you know, she doesn't want to any she doesn't want to know that she doesn't pray for example. Okay, so
so that's a prayer that stumps not for the sake of Allah. They just doing it for people. It's not for the sake of a loss on top right. So then this prayer will not have any rewarding NLF Iran because it the Nia, she's tied her Nia to what the people and what, you know, I'm trying to say it's just all about the people. It's not about Allah subhanaw taala
The point is, the person is rewarded, according to me. Yeah, that's what we have to look at. The third point here is built on the previous one, that are men, which are deeds, there are different types. All right, from LML. From deeds, there's different types. So we have from deeds, that which are wedgie, but like they are an American YG but like they are the compulsory dates. And then we have deeds, which are an Amen and MOBA. Like they are deeds which are permissible deeds, and then we have the third type of deeds which are deed we should leave. Okay, so we're going to look at all of these three and have a look at how they all fit in the second. The second one is more but you know,
deeds, which are more
like that means that they are permissible dates. They don't fall in, they don't fall into the compulsory category and they don't fall into the haraam or macro category. Okay? So, if we look at the first lot of dates, we're talking about days which are word or deed deed which is the hub date which are compulsory or deeds which are recommended
that a person will not be rewarded for those. And this your Nia is for thority let your Nia needs to be out of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala
so for deeds that are worship the Nia must accom company yet in order for it to be correct, right. And we already spoke about why we already spoke about what would happen if you know so all actions which are either wedge if I was the head, it will not be correct, except with the Nia and we spoke about that in point one.
All right. Now, we have the second type of dates,
which are we can classify them as more but
they permissible dates, things like sleeping things like eating things like drinking, okay. So the question is, is a person rewarded for that or not?
Okay, now, I put
Listen could be rewarded for it according to his intention.
And also, he could not be rewarded for it. And even in fact, a person could be punished for it according to his nia.
um, do you original ruling on these actions is that there's no reward for them, you know, I mean, like they permissible, permissible and you're not you're not rewarded or punished it doesn't come under anything.
Okay. However due to the Nia someone has for these dates, a person could be like I said, either rewarded or punished.
So let's look at some examples. Let's say a person goes to sleep and they follow the manners of sleeping
so for example, the person to do before sleeping they made a car in a separate a Jacuzzi, for example, before they slip, or even they just sit for the sake of Allah like I put the intention that I'm sleeping for the sake of Allah, tala to get rest, you know, for me to get a wake up on time for fudger or something like that, like, you know, they go to sleep on time knowing that there's actually like they come up with budget, Jenna Stan.
And they put for example, their alarm clock on, you know that. So that because I want to make sure they wake up for budget prayer.
So anyway, the point is, they went to sleep remembering Allah subhanaw taala. So this person will be rewarded for that sleeping, because I remembered a lot of Pandora with their sleeping.
And they had that near to wake up for the prayer. So they stepped on top it left, they stepped on the obedience of the last pantalla, right.
And even our best radi Allahu anhu, he used to say, I hope for a good foot from Allah. So my sleep, just as I hoped for reward from a lot from my standing at night. So that's how you can get rewarded, even if just for sleeping. Just like you, you know, you get rewarded for for waking up pmla or because of your intention.
Now the principle that the Prophet said a long while, it was seldom mentioned in a Hadith, that if a man we're going to we're going to take this hadith inshallah will come to the Saudis as we go along, that when a man goes to his wife in Hello, this is South Dakota, we're feed booderee, I had econ soda.
When a man goes to his wife inhaler, there's a soda for that. Now the companions was surprised.
You know, there was saying, How can it be good enough for an action that you're just fulfilling your desires through it?
And so the prophets that allowed us and um, he said that,
you know, they, they said, you know, how can we jasola? How do we get a reward for something that we were just, you know, a man fulfills his desires, and he gets rewarded for it, you know? So he said, didn't you see that if one of you did that in how long? You'd be punished for it? If you did that same thing in how long? You'd be punished for it? So they said yes. So he said that, and that is how when you when you chose the Hillel, that you'll be rewarded for it.
You mean, you went to the hell out, you get rewarded for it? Okay. So in this hand, it shows that if deeds, you know, that, that if deeds, which are more bad, this is a mobile action. If it's accompanied by the good intention, then it turns into a deed of address, it turns into a deed of the web, like you get rewarded for it. So we can make the Yes, we can make analogy on this for all types of impermissible actions. Like if you go traveling, you know, if you are having a rest, even, you're having a rest, and you accompany in it, the NEA for doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, you'll be rewarded.
So for example, you might need to refresh yourself. You know, like you've maybe you've been busy like working and looking after your family and doing lots of a bed up. But then you know, you need timeout where everybody needs to refresh themselves. Nobody can continue to do the same stuff that you put the net like so when you take your kids to the park, for example. Or you take them somewhere you have the Nia that, you know, anytime for a holiday, you put you in your knee or that I'm doing this for the sake of a lot to refresh myself. And also when you're there you try to remember lots of hands on as well. You don't just go there and be in a state of hoffler you don't be in a central
hall for the whole holiday. Like there's nothing wrong with having fun. Yes. But don't be in a state of flow when you go on holiday. We don't remember a lot at all. There should be time in the day we have to regroup on. Do you have car in the morning? Do you have car in the evenings, Jenna Stan, like you got to remembering a lot. Don't just get yourself in a set of golf clubs the whole time even if it's just even if it's a time of fun.
Okay, so if a person came to sleep with
Without doing okay, so that's how you can make it in a state of edger. Right? But if a person came to sit without doing any of the manners of sleeping, and they didn't bother to set the alarm, let's say, okay, so they could get a sin for that if they had the intention, right? To let them so purposely say through, like they might say, they might say to himself with his hair straight on, you know, whispers to that you say to yourself, Well, I'm very tired today. And I know I've got budget, but you know what? I'm so tired. I'm just not going to set my alarm tonight. And I'm just going to sleep and who cares if I miss fudge. So you basically sit upon disobedience, don't translate,
because you've already decided that you're not going to make up for fudge. You're not going to try to at least try to wake up Did you feel if you didn't like you'd set your alarm and eat in and you step through accidentally that's different, but you purposely decided you don't even going to bother to try? If you try you get rewards. Of course, if you try and it happens by accident, everybody might have a certain time where they might accidentally sleepy. That's alright, that's excusable, but not when you purposely decided that you're not going to try to wake up. You understand?
I'm just completed our six minutes left. So those in the forbidden time it doesn't matter. You got to pray even if you didn't have time to do it. I've seen for that for Prime Minister billion time No, because even if you're praying when the sun is rising, you still pray. It's a fun prayer. Okay, when it's a fun prayer, you pray, even if the sun is rising, that could come doesn't come on when it's when it's like because the Prophet sort of Lotus and said when it whenever you
forgets, you know, may or sleeps through the prayer or forgets then they can pray as soon as he remembers. So what you do is if you forget, or you sleep through, you've got to practice soon, because the pain is due straightaway. Yeah, that pre can be delayed. The sooner No, you don't pray the sooner. Yeah. So um,
so like I said, if you stepped, you know, knowing most likely you're not going to wake up for such.
You know, and even especially if they went to bed, doing some sort of active Masia or doing some act of you know, sins before going to sleep and stepped upon that as well. Jenna Stan. So anyway, the point is, this is how you could your sleep can end up being asleep, which you get seen for it, even though normally you wouldn't get any reward or punishment for that sin for that sleep. Then the third one, the third type of sleep, obviously, is just the mobile sleep, which is normal sleep.
And that's the sleep of habit. You know, it just comes under a habit. There is no intention behind the sleep, there's no mindfulness, there's no mindfulness behind the sleep. So, um, so it's not considered Masia. It's not considered disobedience. But also you won't get rewarded for it because you didn't have mindfulness in it. You can have your mindfulness of doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is how Subhan Allah Islam teaches us to true mindfulness, which is now the wisdom people that can teach it. But you know, the beautiful saints, the people of knowledge, a bad dad, a little muffler are that's why that's a little jacoba a bad debts. So this meaning it says to
beautiful, you treasure it, it says the bad debts of metal off law, like the worship of the people of lawful law, the people of heedlessness is in fact only a habit.
While the habits of those who are awake
is a bad day for them.
So it's a very powerful statement. So if you think about that, so
when you're talking about the bad debt of Apple off law, for example, people who fast just from habit, their mom and their dad used to pass the day fast, but there's no mindfulness in their fasting, they're not doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it's not, you know, they're not trying to get the aim of taqwa out of their fasting, it's just doing it as a habit because you you inherited as a cultural cultural heritage or something you understand. So it's just like a habit, then it's not really like an act of worship anymore. Or, or praise, you know, you just pray out of a habit rather than doing it with the intention of doing that to get close to a loss of pantalla. So
that's how you're you're a bad debt when you're not awakened within yourself and you're just in a state of law, you're a bear that becomes just like a habit. While the people of the people who are awakened they are that they normal habit, even just washing dishes or you know, looking after their children, or you know, cleaning the house or, you know, sleeping or whatever, they're doing just normal habits. They become acts of worship for them. Suppan a lot. So that's how their whole life can become fully left there.
Whole Life can become the left like for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, this is what I was hoping for us. Yes. So to keep your your shell from becoming halal and mindful, would you say it would just be as simple as like renewing our intention or you have to do more gentleness, we just had to do next you have to do jihad enough, you know, like, have to continue to fight yourself.
It's like in prayer, you have to keep fighting yourself. And the same thing outside the prayer, you have to keep fighting yourself. So you have to keep on reminding yourself and try to be the same Vicar as much as you can. That's what it comes down to. Getting yourself back on track, like try not to be Try not to sit except remembering a lot. Try not to whatever environment you're in, try to remember less pantalla at all times and places as much as you can always on your mind purifying yourself. You know, it's just about constantly remembering a lot, especially especially, like remember we did tongue because remembering with the tongue helps your heart to remember gonna stand
like, try to do the global law on your tongue at least even sometimes your heart obviously drifts off, but try like you're in the car as the philosopher, philosopher, philosopher panelist on a law that try to always do dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala because it makes yourself used to it like your your, your your, your body gets used to always remembering Allah Subhana Allah so you that's how you get yourself in a state of trying to be always mindful with everything you're doing. Okay.
So, okay, so the other the other arm
the other so we've gone through so far, the wedgie deeds, or the wedge actions. We've gone through the MOBA actions. Now we're going to talk about the deeds which are either macro, or they are how long?
Okay, so, for example, like hemp, or you know, rubber, from a more how to match in general, like, you don't have to have a need to not do a specific deed, but just you have the Nia to refrain from falling into those actions which are forbidden in general. Okay. So as for where do you get a reward for your near to leave? And we'll head on that, like, do you get rewarded for your intention to leave forbidden actions, the scholars went into details, some said, You're not rewarded because it didn't take anything from you. But other scholars said, No, leaving the Mahara mat is also actively bad. But the fact that you don't go to Mahara mat isn't actively bad for you. So if a person intends
to leave that thing, it means he'll be rewarded for doing that. And this is the more correct view will level Tyler Allen right? So if a Muslim has the intention to leave acts of,
you know, acts of disobedience out of obedience to Allah, then of course, inshallah they're going to be rewarded for leaving that those head on actions. But what we have to just
clarify he is that sometimes people leave things not for the sake of a law, they might leave it from him for health. So for example, someone might leave smoking, not because a lot, you know, we know that it's there, da da, da, da da da, not because we know that something harmful, and that's something haraam, but just because they did it out of health, you know,
then in this case, if their intention wasn't for the sake of Allah, because there was, you know, they know a lot, you know, something hot on, you know, to smoke, they wouldn't be rewarded for leaving it.
Jenna, Stan, it would, in a look, what are we talking about, when we talk about rewards for intentions, it's, it's, like, people get a little bit too wound up with roll, because at the end of the day, it's all up to us. pantalla you know, we're just giving you guidelines here. But some people want to know specifically or but if I do this, like it, you know, I get more reward if I do it like this, or that depends on the person themself, how much you know, how much did it stand how much they
see how Yeah, how much they're capable, there's so much involved with how much reward a person gets for each, each day to do so to try to like, pinpoint, like, as people do all the time, you know, before you know, I get more good for this, but it all depends on how much you know. So we can only talk in general terms.
So the more correct view is a person will be rewarded for leaving and will hold on that's just as they're rewarded for doing an action as long as you're doing that out of thoughts IE like you're doing it out of obedience to a law not out of just some Junior reason, not just something you reason that you're doing that like you know now because, like, now, a lot of people like it's sad, but like when scientists come out and tell you that this is all now bad for you. Now, they'll suddenly want to like leave it right not because Allah told you not because the Prophet said a lot of them told you you know, like
You know, I can give an example of that it's not from a Muslim but like, for example, my parents, they're really funny. Like
they never wanted to, you know, buy halal meat for us or anything like that. But then the funny thing was one time they wanted to go for Christmas in July, and they're asking me where can they get a hell old chicken? And like, why would you want to Hello chicken? You know, you're going to Christmas in July with non Muslims. Why do they want the Hello chicken? Because they found that there's less blood in the Hello chicken
because it's been what's been slaughtered. So now suddenly, they want the Hello chicken. Understand and it's, you know, it's healthier, it's better because it doesn't have all the blood. It's upon a lot. So but But see, unfortunately, there are a lot of Muslims who are very, you know, they've kind of weakened it. Amen and that and go like, only when the scientists come out you know, like now you know you just see that thing in Norway they've got the new ms wax the new you know, like wow, this is a new thing that you know, they're selling it like this new well themes
like this. And then there was the in Australia that the new that there is a new health cure. That's gonna help everyone you know, with the black, the black.
The black seat
came out and it was it was on the current affair. This could be the new answer to everyone's problems in Australia. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, like there's the whole thing on it. So let's move on to the fourth point here. And that is that bad at bad Nia for a deed turns that deed from being a righteous deed into a corrupt one.
Okay, so a bad Nia for a deed turns that deed from being a righteous deed into a corrupt one. So allow Donna says men can you read who hated dunya was the net was the netta knew what fee lay him our mela home fee her wire home fee her lead you because soon.
whoever wants the life of this world and its adornments, then we shall give that to them, we should give them that we should give them they, they should get their you know, recompense for that in this world.
And, you know, and and you know, nothing will be held back. Like, they'll get what they want, but it won't be in the earth here. Right? In other words, you won't get the rewards for that in the FAA. Not only do you get what you know, you get you get what you wanted in this world only. Okay. So it shows that when the NEA becomes corrupted from being purely for the sake of a law, that the person gets what they wanted in, in other words, they get that Roby thing. You get that Well, the thing but don't expect to get the reward in the FAA for it.
Yeah, yeah. That and but not necessarily react, it could be react, or it could be other things. Just you do it for a reason. Yeah, yeah. And I'm gonna go into that now. So, for example, now protect us a person seeks knowledge to be praised and called knowledgeable. Okay. Um, so, a lot will let them get back in that world, they'll get praised.
Um, but in the next life, that deed that wouldn't get rewarded for any fact Metacritic does is will come to they can get punished in the era due to that corrupt intention.
And allow Donna mentioned, what have you thought now? So now and fee her What about the American or Yeah, Milan, that what they did is what else and it's false, it's considered to be false. Like it's not,
it's not accepted. So that's why a believer needs to constantly correct their intention, and not let it get corrupted. By starting to work for the things that is dunya. Like, sometimes, people doing things for money, it's not, they're not really doing it for the sake of Allah, like, I might sound good, because they give a lot, but it's really the money they go thereafter. So only Allah knows the true intentions. So there's all different things that can corrupt you. Um, and at the end of the day, our hearts are weak, we have to keep on fighting ourselves, to make sure we stay on track and big and realize and remind yourself that, you know, you're if every time you do something for dunya,
every time you do it for you know, for money or for for fame, or for you're doing whatever you're doing it for then basically, you're selling the airfare for this life.
Yeah, you're selling the price of the airfare for this life. That's what you're basically doing. And this life is so temporal, what's it gonna, you know, you're not gonna take any of that with you to your grave. Right. And another thing that demonstrates that is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, which mentioned about those first three people who would be brought on Yom Akiyama, you know, the one who used to recite the Quran and sought knowledge. And they were called the recycler and the one who gave sadhaka but really, it was just to be, you know, considered to be generous. And then then we're jarhead.
You know, really, it was just to be
said that you're brave, you're a hero, you're you know, so so that's how the intentions can become corrupted and in fact they weren't really doing it for the sake of Allah they were really just doing it for people to you know, praise them and you know and to get the worldly gains. And so because of that corrupt intention, madam protect us they get punished in the in the fire due to that.
So it shows the first to be exposed to the fire on Yom Okayama are those who, whose intentions are corrupted for why they did that from xv Bader and that's why we have to be so careful with our empty beds up to you know, fight ourselves to make sure that they are for the sake of Allah alone.
So based so this is why we have to really strive like I said to correct our intentions and and be aware of it becoming corrupted and and that that's why these headings is so important to study in the Mallanna. Lubin yet that all actions are by their intentions, and then the profits that are larger Some said the men cannot hedge rato Ito law he was fully he for he dropped to who in a law he was sued he, whoever is he draw was for Allah and His messenger. Then his rato, who eat a lot he was slowly he, woman candidate, he dropped to hooli dunya you see Buddha in our Mirage, Athenian Cuba, but whoever is he draw was for the dude for dunya purpose like to get money, you know, or some
worldly game, or you know, to get married to a woman woman, then for his wife, to who Elena hedgerow la then he draw is for whatever he made his rule for. You get that but you won't get the reward if you don't see. So sometimes the original of your Nia is for it like you might start out with the good intention. But then Judah are the influences your your Nia can become changed. And we take that even in a small scenario like well, you start to pray. And you might be praying just normally for the sake of Allah but then you notice someone's watching you hold the pillar. And so you start to pray even better, because they're watching, you know, you go slower, and you know, you're showing
I've got this horseshoe.
everybody's watching me, you know, what was really, really, really funny.
is it's funny joke. It's about this guy, he's praying, and people are watching him, they're going, look at his who Sure. And then he turns to because he's not fasting too. Okay, so the people of knowledge, they spoke about this in detail, they said, if the Nia was originally correct,
you know, your, your intention was to pray and MSG, you know, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But then it changed after that.
So the, therefore the original the deed will be correct, but this, this is sin, this is sin for what entered in upon it, so that's going to reduce the reward of the date. So you're going to get rewarded for the region of the date, but there's gonna be a reduction in their work due to the corruption that came into the date, right. But if the deed was done, if the deed was done for another reason,
okay, so from the very beginning, the original was bought in the original was false from the beginning. Like if you only gave money because metal protect us, you wanted to be seen you wanted to build a safe, you know, to see you're generous in giving, right? Then it means it's corrupt from the beginning. And, and therefore, you know, we have to realize that there's, for example, I had it could be that mentioned that Allah does not accept any deed where there's another partner
placed, or another intention placed inside.
That intention alongside him. For example, there's a hadith that says an alumnus should all care he and his shook like I am the most free and independent of being in need of any partner or of shook right, men, Amina, I'm in an Ashoka, man Maya fee of 80 torok to who was shipka. Like, who ever does
an act in which they placed another partner besides me alongside with me in it, then I have left. I have left that deed. And, and that one, like, what what he made sure with, okay, so this is, um, this is a very crucial matter. And the sellers were very overcautious with you know, they were always and this is where this is where mindfulness is very, very important of really paying attention to the NEA. Always you have to keep on questioning. So why did I say that? Why did I do that? Why did I go there? Why
Stan and try to fight your Nia and Sophia Anna thodi Rahim Allah He said, I did not treat anything more harder for me than my nia.
Like so don't think it's you alone who's struggling with these things that the salad like, it's actually a good sign if you're struggling with these things. Because if you're not struggling with these things
and actually understand, so the fact that you're worried about it is actually a very good sign. It's a healthy habits, that you're actually aware enough and awake enough to be concerned about your nia. It's the ones who are not caring about this not even didn't cross their minds. That's what the ones have to be worried. And they're probably not even at this class right now. Another thing is that there is another side point that if you do a deed, for Allah to give you something in dunya, we have to be careful with that.
So you have to be careful about doing deeds, because you want a lot to give you something in dunya okay, because then it's really a, an ER for dunya. Okay, but if you did that for Allah, hoping that Allah may make it up for you in dunya, there's a subtle difference, then you'll be rewarded for that. And you have to be a little bit careful with doing deeds for the purpose of getting something in dunya. You understand? What you do is you do it hoping that Allah will make it up for you in dunya. But don't do it because you want that thing in dunya? You understand what I'm trying to say? Yeah. So there is a drop for having a class in a nia.
Wait, that's due to, you know, the headaches about the boys that were in stuck in the cave with the rock, and then the boys so that wasn't because they wanted then there was a kneel for intention that was then being stuck in a situation and they say to Allah, because I had done such and such, can you please relieve me from such and so if you think about that, they've already done the act for a law before that's different. And now they're making tawassul with a righteous deed? Yeah, so it's allowed to make tawassul righteous deeds? Don't do that. But then when that's fine when you do no notice and then also hang on, is that what I do know that you didn't do the deed? For that reason
before you see. So now what you what you do is when you know you've done a righteous deed for a lot at some time, even believing in a law, or even just, you know, your law, you know, how patient I was, for your sake in that trial I went through. So now I'm asking you a law to answer my daughter, you know, yeah, so it's allowed to make to us sort of the righteous days and it's a way of like beseeching a law to Westworld, yet, it's from the permissible
methods of tawassul tawassul means stickiness to Allah, you know what I mean? So it's a means of stickiness to Allah like because you're besieging a line you're trying to get close to Allah through you know, and there's other things to do as well like the other things you can do like calling upon him by Beautiful Names for example. Okay, okay. Yeah, but that's just one thing. So we have the door app for a class in Nia so
a lot of money in the air all the beaker and push rica beaker, we're an island was stove fuel cap, Lima Island. So Allah in the arrow to be an EU shreeka because when you're a law, I ask protection with you from associating with you. While I know what is still futile, clearly, mela Ireland and I asked forgiveness from you from what I don't know. So this is a very important drop to try to say, you know, as much as we can, to help ourselves be protected from different types of shirts, whether it's major shock or even, you know, the more like, you know, the shock of react the shock of
showing off or you know, or just generally associating, you know, other intentions otherworldly intentions alongside with your intention for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, again, you know, trying to correct your intention, it can be a very big trial for many people, right. But the thing he also is, which is very important is to not let, don't let that stop you from from striving for deeds, because some people what they do now, because without all that we just said, now they say, Well, now I'm too scared to pray a boo ha, or I'm too scared to do you know, I'm too scared to do any deeds because I now I'm worried that people I'm doing react, so they do lists that straight
on making you shrink and do lists so you shouldn't do that.
So you have to realize that if you actually leave deeds for the fee of the
you know, you leave deeds
because of people you worried about people praising you, then now you're leaving deeds due to other lives Well,
You're leaving dates due to Alabama law you're not you're not leaving dates because for the sake of a law, you're doing it because you're worried about you worry about people again, still worry about people. So yeah, exactly. So you need to what you need to do is just do a lot of is still far do a lot of stuff and do a lot of private deeds. Private deed is really the solution. Anybody who's worried about react should do a lot of private data. It's the only way to cure react. It's the only solution to our Yeah, actually. All right.
So much more time, and it was taught tenets.
Of course, Aria is showing off. Yeah, doing things for showing off like
okay, now we come to another masala
which is does the NIAC need to be pronounced when you do dates.
So, most of you know, like the Nia should be in the hearts. Okay. And
so when you go to take hold or to pray, that's your nia. But when you when you think to go and pray though,
you know, you have your Nia but of course, you know, it is important to have in your heart, what prayer, you're going to pray, you don't just go pray, you don't just go, you know, you need to know. Am I praying, Lord, am I praying us? So that's your Nia, that, you know, like you don't have to. We know already that though is for rockets. Unless you're a traveler. So if you're, if you're praying, you're normal, though. You just have to have your intention on praying God. And so the intention is just in your heart that you know, you've got the awareness that I'm going to pray both now. Because you can't pray. It's very important to know that I just mentioned is now the fifth issue, but very
important. You cannot pray a prayer and you don't know what you're praying. And then suddenly, in the middle of the prayer, you just change it to what prayer you're going to pray like so for example, just say you thought you're paying us, but then you realize you're actually paid off. that pays gonna be bottom now. You actually have to read pray the prayer,
a prayer and then being like, Oh, that was my fun. Oh, no, you definitely can't do that. No way. Okay. So that the prayer would, you know, all you can do is you can downgrade it. You can downgrade the prayer, no to an F.
Which means just an extra extra prayer. So just say you were praying. So what you can do is just say you're praying for rock art. You didn't even think about what you're praying or you you thought you're praying us and then you realize that you're actually first you pray the door, rather than to stop the prayer. Just keep doing the prayer by putting your intention This is just enough prayer now. I need to pray my daughter after the finisher, just you can finish it and you're finished. Absolutely.
Well, if you start off with if you start off at if you've heard already put the intention of four Yeah, it depends on what your intention was. If you didn't put any fixed intention you do too and but just put it as enough put it down as a in an extra prayer. That's it. So the same thing like in Ramadan
Yeah, no, it's important to know
the same thing when you when you set your alarm to wake up for supper and Ramadan. Excuse me.
That's basically your Nia
what Why are you getting why using your alarm?
Because you're intending to fast your isn't it? Like so that's how any the main way to know if you have a Nia is if someone was to ask you, what are you praying now? What are you about to pray? Or what would he you know, Jenna said, who's asking What are you doing? That's an annuity, you're able to answer them It shows you how to kneel. You understand?
So um, so the actions that you do preparing for a deed show you're near like going and taking your dog to pray, for example, it shows you that you're, you've got the near there. So the Nia is in the heart, we don't need to pronounce it. There's only a couple of times where we announce we say something before an act of worship one of them when we do hydro Umrah. When you go to the Mia bots, and you enter into Iran, you say a llama bake hijab, or you say, I'm gonna bake ombre?
Or the vague, hedgerow warmer, like, it depends on what right you're doing. But why are you doing that? It's not because you're telling a lie. your intention is because you're announcing your rights because when you do online, it's different than Hajj and when you do, there's different types of Hajj, the different types of Hajj you can do. There's different rites of passage. So what you're doing by doing that you're actually announcing with called the nusach, you're announcing the rights that you're about to do. And the second time is when you're doing a sacrifice.
That it's like
The profit sort of loaders and who's to say along the head, I need one Ella Beatty, you're a law, this is on behalf of myself and my family. But here you're announcing the purpose of the sacrifice. Because if you, you know, when we slaughter it, you could be slaughtering just to get meats, right, hello slaughter that you do for me looks the same as a sacrifice.
Yeah. But when you're announcing that this is for this reason, it's not because you're telling Allah you're Nia, it's because you're announcing the right of that this is your it's showing that it's a sacrifice. It's not just a normal slaughtering of the hell out
of the child. Yeah, yeah, for example. So you're showing that it's, you know, it's showing that it's a right, you're practicing a right as in our it, II. So the seventh benefit we can take from this howdy
is that is the effect of Alec loss in in your worship, for a loss of pantalla upon the psychological well being of a person.
So Subhanallah, many of the diseases and sicknesses of the self, are in effect due to a person's heart becoming too attached to the things of this world. This is what's causing such psychological unrest with a lot of people at this time, right? Because why have a think about it, people become too attached to worrying about what people think about them. Right, and to attach to running after things of this world, like gaining the material gains from this world. But if a person empties their heart from these false attachments,
right, and they they connect your heart instead
to Allah subhanaw taala alone, then you find you won't be harmed by others. If they try to harm you, you won't be harmed.
Or if you get something from this dunya or not, it won't harm you. Because you're living your life for loss of pantalla like your intention is for a loss. So whether you get that whether it comes to you or not, that's not the that's the motto, not the crux of the matter for you. Like as a loss is putting in nosology when usuki when a woman Natty lillahi Rabbil aalameen say Verily, my prayer and my sacrifice and my living in my dying is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds. So you, for example, if you treat your husband, for example, well for the sake of Allah, or you're good to your parents, for the sake of Allah, you know, you have the best of luck with others, for the sake of a law, you help
others and you work for the sake of Allah, and then others don't appreciate what you do for them.
Okay, you don't wait or expect anything in return, this will then bring you peace of mind. Because one thing that makes people upset and brings them a lot of stuff. And psychological unrest is when they've done so much for the people. And then we find ungratefulness in return, you know, or we're not thanked, or they were not appreciated for what we've done. So this is how it's lost, having a floss leaves you and raises you from being hurt by people SubhanAllah. But you know, so if, if you do things for people to appreciate you, or you're waiting for praise, also they love you. And then that doesn't happen. That's what causes a lot of people to get that psychological unrest.
Or, you know, if you're too attached to their opinions of you,
or if you know, your outcomes are based upon opinions or feedback of people.
You know, for example, like, Look, it can happen on social media, you know, you post a post, and no one likes it, or
you know what I mean? But like, if you posted it for the city for the sake of a lot, and it was something sincere advice, you know, to make or something like beneficial and no one liked it. Well, you're rewarded with a loss of power, you know, but if you posted it, because you're wading through a lot of people to like it, and you know, it didn't send any, where's your attachment here? It's, it's to the people, okay. So this will free you this will, this knowledge will actually free you.
Because most, you know, so many psychological, so much psychological, psychological unrest is actually caused by worrying too much about people.
You know, especially like I said, on Snapchat, Instagram, you know,
you see people maybe together, why didn't they invite me like, I think it's much harder now. Like, in the past, you know, you might have heard that your friends got together. They didn't invite you. That was bad enough, but now if you actually see us having fun on Snapchat, why didn't they like me? Maybe they don't like me, why don't they? They appreciate what I've done for them. You know, all these thoughts or, you know,
Look what they have, and why don't I have that to the comparing, right? Or people love them more than they love me they're more popular, you know, they've got more likes more shares, and I've got you know, so if we purified our hearts for a lot alone, we would detach ourselves from worrying about all of these trivial things because, you know, you'd realize that all these things are from dunya.
Alright, so this is this, this Hadith, if you take this as a principle in your life, it will free you from from all this, it will help you to rise above all of that, and it will give you peace of mind and heart inshallah.
And Allah tada says, ellerby de la he takoma in New kulu. That Verily, it's by the decree of a law that the hearts find rest. Because when you connect your heart back to Allah, you know, reminding us of of Allah, this is what brings you peace of mind and hearts. So this is how the class has a huge effect on the psychological well being of a person.
All right, and the other thing too here is that a class is a tool of strength for a person as well. You know, when you seek knowledge, for the sake of Allah, you don't care, you don't care if people consider you knowledgeable or not. So you keep on seeking knowledge, you know, you're seeking knowledge for the sake of knowledge, you know, for the sake of Allah not because
not waiting for recognition, and that actually pushes you to go further and beyond. beyond limits, okay, because a lot of people what they'll do is because if they're only looking for the certificate, once they get the certificate of recognition, they stop there. They don't continue on. Okay, so that means for them, it was all just about getting that acknowledgement. Don't try and say
the other thing he true is that and if plus is what keeps the shaitan away, like purifying your intention for Allah is you know, heavy if lust for Allah is something that repels straight on. It's mentioned in sod, verse 83, all over the Exotica that Oh, Vienna home edge, Mary shaitan said to a level Tyler
by your by your mites, I will misguide all of them. And then he says in Larry Bird deca men who will McCullough seen me by by your mind, his brain by his attribute does vary by the attribute of a lot. Because we can swear by a law we can say well, law II and we can also swear by His attributes, we can say well, what rock man we can say well, ketene you can swear by a lot of attributes as well. All right. So it
just means us we bought last. Oh, yeah. But let me finish this inline data can mean homomorphic lacing. So what it's showing here
is that shaitan swore to misguide. But then he says ilari bedika mean humann mozillazine, except for your righteous servants. So that shows that if last
shaitan can't get hold of people with your class. So that's why it's just as long as you're still purifying your intention, fighting yourself to have that pure intention for the sake of Allah, that's propelling shaitan away from you. But once you start getting those false attachments, you start doing things for other than Allah. That's when shaitan can easily use that weakness and misguide you understand
