100 Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah wala le he was Sufi woman Well, first of all as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear sisters, always a pleasure to see your beautiful faces especially when you're all smiling hamdulillah
inshallah, Allah lead the topic I've chosen to speak about today is about acidic, which is about sincerity, that having sincerity.
It's one of the most important manners that we need to have. Because sometimes we we focus a lot on our outwards, maybe out with image, let's say, and we forget that the most important thing we need to be focusing on is fixing our hearts and rectifying the condition of our hearts. And you know, a finger is something you know, it's, it's, you know, a simple starts from the heart and it comes out in your words it comes out in your actions and it will have an impact on
on you know, on everything you do. So that's why it's very important that we we focus on this characteristic it's from our us luck to have
as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Allah in the field just a D mo ba, e de sala hatz sola, sola, hell just a do kulu what either faster that's faster than just I do kulu Allah wa, like there is in the heart. Sorry, there is in the body and a clump of flesh. Right? That is rectified and corrected, then all of the body will be corrected. And if it's corrupted, then all of the body will be corrupted. Allah will heal. Am with him. The most important thing is it it's the heart. Okay, so we need to fix our hearts. And it's very important that we focus on rectifying the conditions of our heart because I said, What comes what starts in the heart comes out in everything we do. Okay, so
the other thing is true that, you know, as believers, our goal in life is to try our best to follow in the path of lamb
and the russos right following the path of the prophets and messengers, and following the path of the CDC. Okay, the very true insurgency believers. And if we look at the characteristics of all those who are from the agenda, the one characteristic they all have is the characteristic of a civil the characteristic of, of decency, truthfulness in their hearts, okay. And you can see that if you study like when you go to the Quran, and you read the A to the Quran, you can feel the sin. You can feel the sincerity like you think about the sincerity of nor in his doubt, to a law. You think about the sincerity of Abraham, in his doubts when you align calling to Allah, you know, according to the
path of Allah pantalla you know, you think about the sincerity of, of money, I'm alayhis salaam in her in her faith in her Amen, and shake your booty man to Allah. So this is an NGO study about the Sahaba their sincerity in sacrificing for the sake of Allah and sacrificing, you know, to defend the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was alive. So that, you know, this is the sincerity that we need to try to be adopting in our lives.
So that's the one characteristic that they all have this characteristic of authentic.
That's why inshallah we'll speak about this, this topic today.
So the word said,
comes from the words so the heart which means, like, you know, obviously, it's the means sincerity. And it means the opposite of a Kevin, which means to like to have the, you know, someone who is upon lying and deception. So the opposite you move away from that bad periods, characteristic of lying and fraud and deception. Right? So what we aim towards in Islam is to make your words match what is in the heart, and to make your words upon also and harp upon the truth. That's what it means to be upon a sin to make your words in accordance with what Allah and he's missing, just a little law, whatever came with, and to be sincere in that with your heart.
And as you know, one of the conditions even of a Shahada when you take the Shahada when you say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah is you have the seat in the heart as well, but you mean it from the heart, it's coming from the heart, because it's very important that our heart what comes out on the tongue matches what's in the heart and that's what we need to correct this. We need to try to
You know, do like, um, with jazz naps, like we need to do, you're striving against ourselves so that we make out what we say in conformity with what's in our hearts. Okay, so now there's three levels of assist. So the first level is when a person is solid.
Okay, so this is a truthful and honest person. And every Muslim should be trying to be like this, right, that you are truthful and honest, in your dealings, you know, not ripping people off not defrauding people. All right, trying to get just all you care about and getting money and you don't care about being honest and upright in your dealings. Right, then the second is when a person is so dope. So this is when they're very sincere and trustworthy, like people really turn to them because they see how sincere they are, and they really trust that person. And then the highest level is a CD. Okay, so this is the highest level of SIDS. And it is the level of
the very sincere and upright people and this is the level of for example of a box of CDs. That's why it's called a CDs because of how upright he was Helston. See he was in his face. The moment the message of tawheed came to him. He straightaway accepted it and that's got to do with the heart, his heart muscle, lots of break. The law is so pure, that as soon as the truth comes to it, he straightaway accepts that his heart can recognize the truth straightaway. And it's also the level of Maryam alayhis salam as well like Allah says in the Quran, what omo si de la that his mother the mother of he is salesflare was the teapot that she's that level of believers that she's extremely
sincere in her email extremely sincere in her faith in Allah azza wa jal
I'm so and so the other characteristics of the person who has said fit like acidic is the one who never lies no matter what they don't lie like you know someone got on and that they were of such a level in a fear of a lot they wouldn't even take an oath like they wouldn't even say well law he even when they're truthful, that's the level of their their level of their sincerity in their in the man with a law Okay, even if they're gonna lose in a court they weren't say well law he even if you're gonna lose any bids against them because they just that's the level of sincerity. So this is something that's really lacking, you know, as I've said, to many of us who have paid too much
attention to the, you know, the external matters of our Deen and we forget to go back to you know, the internal matters, which are the most important matters because that's what Allah looks at, isn't it? Ultimately, what is Algo Cat? He looks at our heart. It's not the external matters. Of course, external matters do matter. I'm not saying they don't matter because what's in our heart if you're sincere, comes out in your actions. So if it's not coming out in the actions means it's something not right in the heart actually. Okay, but like I said, where it all starts from is the heart. We need to fix the heart in order to rectify our outward affairs.
So this is why a lot of rabbits Allah He played praised. This is DJ Fabiola aka my Latina and Namo la la mina Nabina was Cindy Athena was shuhada he was solly hin what has sooner Ola aka Rafi for Allah tala seasons with any SAP verse 69. So they will be with the ones who Allah bless them. And I'm Allah wa lay him mean and Naveen from the prophets was Cindy attain the truthful and sincere believers was she had that he which is the mostess was solid in what has gone out Willa, aka Rafi and that is the best of company to be in this is a company we should all be aiming to be in that company. So the meaning of a stick detainee, this verse, other people who follow the messengers and
prophets, in their land in the park in their sacrifice for a law This is the type of you know, this is what we should be this should be our goal in life, you know, following the path of the messengers and the prophets in their society in an in a larger agenda.
And the other thing we notice is that Allahu taala mentioned a bit depayne that this is the level that's even higher than the Shahada. So it's possible for a believer to reach a level even higher than the martyrs depending on house and see they were in their in their Eman with a loss of pounds Allah. But as we know over the course of our life alive is gonna test us in our sincerity. A lot is gonna test us in our sincerity over our lives.
Okay, what does it mean to have this characteristic obviously
It means that the person doesn't say anything except that they train their trial that they train their tongue to be truthful and upright and honest. So you and And believe me, the more you try to train yourself to be like this, the happier you become in your heart because you are becoming authentic like that. isn't trying to pretend to be someone that you're not. You be yourself. And the more you be yourself, the happier you'll become. Because you're not trying to pretend you're not trying to put on a face and try to be somebody else. Okay, so the, the aim for you is to try to make your words in line with what's in your heart. Okay, and also another thing here too, is to make your
actions in line with your words. That's another important thing. You know, what is Allahu Allah say,
caboto moko tener, en de la he and zapol Omar letter followed, its most hated to a lot that you say what you don't do. So when you know whatever you say, you try to uphold that in your actions. What What is why it is the profits that are low as it has such a great effect on us we think about his Syrah because he was a man of words, he was sorry, he was a man of action, not just a matter of words, like he walked the talk. So the more that person's actions are in line with their words, the more effective they will be in, for example, influencing and doing damage to others. So it's very important. If you're thinking about getting into dollar, you try to make yourself in line with your
words, because that's what people who can kind of learn that's the greater the person is in, you know, in alignment with what they you know, what what they say, the more the impact they're gonna have. And the same thing even inside your house, my dear sisters, you want to have an influence on your children, have a look at how much you are acting upon the words you say to your children, because that's what speaks volumes more than what you say.
So if you want to know how to bring up your children to be righteous, you have to look at yourself, how much are you implementing what you say to them? There's no use telling your children pray on time and they see you missing or going over your prayers. There's no there is no there is no use. Thank you children, read Koran,
memorize Quran and aren't speaking memorizing the Quran, they don't see you always reciting the Quran. So if you want your children to love to put on, you want your children to love prayers, you want your children to love Islam, have a look at your own love of Islam, have a look at your own love of Allah subhanaw taala your own love of the Quran, this is all what's going to be the greatest influence on your children's heart. So this is how this is what it means to have a sense to make your man in line with your upward in line with your words. Now, the best way to understand this characteristic of a fifth as well is to look at what's the opposite of a fifth,
which is metal, protect us the weight of the monascus the weight of the hypocrite.
So what the monashee team do
is they hide in the heart, the opposite of what they say with their tongue.
So male protect us, they say I believe in our law, but in their heart world, we lead the greatest enemies to Islam. And they actually fighting Islam I was with them she taught her Jeep. So this is this is this is the true natural. But even there's a lesser form of of nifa, which even a Muslim can have can this is just a disease that can come in the heart. Okay, so you fat is a disease of the heart. And what it basically means is, like I said that the person is not in alignment with their words and with their actions. So they say on their tongue, what they don't mean.
Like they say I'm happy for you, but in their heart out vilella they've got they've got great jealousy in their hearts, or, you know, Jani jennison, they pretend to be your friend, they're not your friends. They actually hate you, but they want to use the metal detectors or something like that protect us from the bad friends. But what I'm trying to say to you is, like, that's a ton of new stuff. So we have to, we have to again, like that. And anyway, the person who's upon that is never happy. You can never be happy like that. As long as you're not like true to yourself. First, you'll never be truly happy in your heart. So you're gonna you're gonna have some sort of burning in
your heart because there's always a bad consequence of, of diseases in the heart.
So, so some people they show they've got good intentions for a lot of pantalla. But really, it's not about good intentions really did work into the dunya. They're not working for a loss of pantalla they pretend they're working for a loss, but the reality is they
Trying to they've got some other aims, maybe they want to expand their business, maybe they want to get a reputation. They want to, you know, go sell their books, whatever they're trying to do. They did. And sometimes they use the dean, they use the dean to try to serve their junior
status about that yesterday. But that's unfortunately a common theme and protect us from it, where they use the dean to serve their dunya in an h1, what should we be doing, we should be using our dunya to serve the dean and not the opposite. So people may protect us, they hide, they hide, you know, what's the opposite, they hide what's really, you know, the opposite what they have in their hearts. And they show to people what's not the reality of what's in their hearts. So this is why if we want to have these characteristics of a sin, we need to get we need to become aligned with what's in our heart with what's on our tongue and what's in our actions. That's how you get the alignment.
So these are the three types of seeds we need to concentrate upon. Now the profits that allow it as soon said, as surgical Burma, Nina, when caribou Reba, so the fifth is what brings contentment and peace in the heart. The more you're in alignment with truthfulness, the more you'll feel at rest in your heart, you feel at peace, because you know that you're not pretending you say the truth, and you mean it. And you're not trying to pretend to be something that you're not. So this was me for back, getting back to your authentic self, you know, talk about being in a, you know, getting to your authentic self is being yourself. Don't try to be somebody else. Don't try to imitate others.
Be yourself, you know, and be truthful to yourself, and the more you're truthful to yourself, you'll be able to be truthful for others if you don't care, like if you really care more about a lot than people. This will help you the most caring more about, you know, because, you know, you can hide from the people but you can't hide from a loss of pantalla. So when you realize that this helps you to become truthful, because what's the use if appraising everybody pleasing the people and Allah is not pleased with you? What's the use? So the more you're focused on having a class for Allah and pleasing a lot, this will take you away from trying to pretend to be something else. Okay. So, like
I said, so a sizzle is what causes tranquility and Sakina in the heart, it causes you know, peace in the heart, while the opposite and Kadhim. It causes restlessness and doubts in the heart, so you won't be content you won't feel at rest.
Because in any way, it's been proven your scientists have looked at people who like, it's actually much harder for a person to lie than it is to tell the truth. That's why they get they're certain, they have like a lie detector, and they can see that there's an anxiety that comes in the person. Even if you're a very good lawyer, there's a certain amount of anxiety that comes into the body drew line. So lying is not even good for your health. Well, like it's not the kind of I see amazing thing, look how alarming everything caught on something bad for you. Everything that alone made, how long is something bad for you, not just in your spiritual, you know, your spiritual well being, but
even your physical well being, like a person who lives their life on credit, will not be a healthy person, even physically, because it's as a physical effect. So you find them very stressed, you know, they have a lot of, you know, anxiety and, and worries, and I suppose it's gonna affect them.
Okay, another thing that happens. The other thing that happens to the caddy been is they end up getting exposed. Sooner or later people find out about them, you know, they end up getting exposed sooner or later.
So the lines get found out, the lies get found out. So this is the difference between
truth and falsehood, truth, truth and falsehood, that you know, truthfulness brings peace to the heart wall. And Kevin brings the opposite. And that's why the prophets that allow it instead of said, A Fistful ninja like that, a state is, is the path for safety and being rescued, and it's a way out, it is a way out, even though you might think it's easier to tell a lie at that moment.
You might think it's easier to tell the lie.
But, but ultimately, by telling the truth, you'll get greater peace of mind. By telling the truth, you get greater peace of mind.
So I want to talk a little bit about the rewards for us. What are the rewards for us? So first of all, having this characteristic of a student is something that allowed Allah He commanded them what we need to have this characteristic. So he says, Yeah,
Well Edina am an otaku, Lucha workqueue Masada team are you believe your law and be from the side your team be from bounce the truthful.
Secondly, from the from the characteristics of a spirit, it's one of the things as I said before that allowed Allah has praised his messengers and prophets like if you look through the Quran, there's many, many times in the Quran, where he praised a particular messenger of Prophet Judas characteristic, they had other sins. So we know that when we read the Quran, see a lot of people when they read the Quran, they read it just like it's just entertaining stories, but every single AR has lessons unit to be taken from the AR. So that's why when you read to put on every AR that you read, you need to be thinking about that AR what is a lot want to teach me from this ayah.
So, when you read the characteristics of the NBA and the rustle, you need to be saying to yourself, when Allah praises student, you know praises them for certain characteristics, it means he wants you to adopt this characteristic to this is the part of the Navy you know, and the v this is a part of an NBN and we should be aiming to follow this path.
This should be part of a flap we should be trying to adopt. So, for example, if you look what Allahu taala says, Is Marian about his name, when chlorophyll kitabi smile in now Canna saw the oil why the word Canada, Sudan, Libya. So he says about his smile in Ocala saw the full word that he was very upright in his promises. Like if he promised to meet somebody at a certain time on a certain day, he would make sure that he was there at that certain time in that certain day. And that's the we have to realize that even part of
when you promise someone something,
it's from your last lap that you fulfill that promise, and you uphold that promise. And we should not be sloppy in our promises. Like if you promise to be at somewhere at a certain time, you should do your very best to be there at that certain time to meet that person. It's not right, that we leave someone waiting for half an hour and one hour and we're late in our appointments, we promise to return something to someone on a certain day. And then we don't turn up. You know, all of this is the opposite of a sin. And it's not a good it's not good, a good characteristic. So the more you're trying to uphold this and get away from that, the more you're getting yourself in alignment with
what a sizzle is, you understand, so you have to try to fix your character, rectify your character. Of course, sometimes things are out of our control. What do we do in that case? We ring the person we apologize. I'm very sorry, I'm five minutes late. You know, that's what you should be doing. You have to respect that you make a commitment to make someone at a certain time. Even when it comes to your appointments with an ultrasound or doctor. It's very bad o'clock from us Muslims that the Australians turn up on time for their appointments and the Muslims are late.
This is not from the flock of Islam where do we get this a lot from?
so youngest dentists are try to fix this because it's not from the lack of Islam.
I'm also allowed to ragdoll and mentioned about Ibrahim are lazy Islam he says what Guru pilkey Tabby Ibrahim in Ocala, si de Pon nebbia that verily he was
the most truthful, he was the most truthful, truthful, and of the billet year from believers and also he was a prophet of Allah. So he got he got praised for his truthfulness, his sincerity sincerity to Allah in his in his and read the story of Abraham, you can see why. Why he got praised for being so truthful and sincere in his faith. And also Madame alayhis, salaam, you know, she had to stand against everybody. She had to risk her whole reputation, to stand against those who are gonna accuse her wife for the sake of Allah jealousy and you understand, so that's what sometimes Allah is going to call you to do sometimes you're gonna have to stand against the waves, you're
gonna have to stand against the tide, you're gonna have to stand up and speak the truth, even if it's not popular. So that's where a lot of testing us in our email, and even Allah is gonna test you in your faith in our code that you were further you say Ravi to be laggy Robin. I am pleasing Allah is my Lord. But how how much are we truthful in that when we get tested in alpha God
But when our test starts in our it's something he predestined, how truthful are we in, in these words, when we say we need to be like you're often so I'm going to be continually testing us all of our lives to see the sincerity. And that's why, you know, a lot of bacala He says, you know, he says in the Quran when I fell Ayala men no longer Latina Sadako when I got an nl caddy being that Verily, Allah will know who are the truthful, and he'll know who are the caddy beam, who are the ones who are not that sincere in their face. This is what a lot when you're going through all these things in your life. Don't think it's it's not for a reason. There's a huge reason why you're going through
all of these things. And part of it is to test the sincerity of your heart. And a lot of purifies your heart through these trials. You don't realize how life purifying your heart during these trials that you're going through some kind of long distance. So always keep that in your mind because sometimes, we've let other things coming away with regret. Let let the lambda of the dunya come in our hearts and the love of the temporary things in this world. And we don't realize we need to purify out our sincerity to make it only for Allah wished we need to empty everything else at about heart except for our love for Allah. That's what Allah wants us to do. He wants us to reach this
level inshallah. Okay, so this is some of the examples of a fifth
and that's why Allah wants us to achieve it.
The third point is that having a fifth is this this characteristic of a fifth is the reason that a lot of hunters gonna reward them what meaning when they enter junda It's from this fifth. That's why you should be aiming towards it like a loss allowances. In certainiy de bajo la Hedda, yo young Pharaoh saw the Athena see the singer for whom
allowed to back to Allah says
this is the day when the site the Athena will be rewarded for cinder block they'll be rewarded for their truthfulness.
So this is this is like the reward they get, you know, when you enter agenda, this is this is why you enter it because of your truthfulness to a larger agenda.
allowed Allah says in the Quran,
Leah Josie alongside the Athena be set up to him that allows auto reward to the sadhya to do today, sincerity here he was such a danger to their sincerity of their faith.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he told us in a Hadith, I guarantee, I guarantee, you know, he's a guarantee to me six things, and I'll guarantee to you agenda. So if you do these six things, the prophets of Allah, there's no guarantees you agenda. So what are these six things your Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam? He said number one,
be truthful when you speak. So when you when you you speak, say the truth. Be truthful when you speak. And when you speak, say the truth and say the heart. And number two, fulfill your promises if you make a promise. Okay. And number three, fulfill your trust if you're entrusted with something. So as women, what are we entrusted with? were entrusted with our children to bring them up on the straight path, were trusted with our household to take the best care we can offer our households were entrusted with the man that's like our husbands might trust us with something the secret's out has been has with you know, that's also about fulfilling your trusts. Okay, so all of these things
were trusted with, we're going to be asked about this by a wide margin. So we have to try our best to be sincere in fulfilling our trust that Allah placed under our under as part of our responsibilities, okay, anything else that allows placing our responsibility, we have to be Cincy as much as we can in fulfilling these responsibilities. And then number four, guarding the private paths guarding the private path. And number five, lowering your gaze. And number six
is restraining the hands and not harming anyone, not harming not harming anybody through yourself, but it went into your town or even through your hands and you don't go harming other Muslims. That's not part of your Apple App. So if you're able to do that you're able to live this life peacefully this way, not harming, not causing anybody harm. Jani Sharma Allah you
agenda with no problems. So this is what we have to be focusing on. And then number four, the first point of who they were was Have a sip is that having a signal is something that leads a person to more good deeds, and it leads you to LBL.
Like, the more you tried to get your self in alignment and rectify your character, we've been a truthful person, the more or less the counselor is gonna open up the doors about being true to righteous deeds and the path of righteousness. And this is something that's recorded recorded in Sahih al Bukhari, Muslim Muslim, in which the prophets of Allah wa sallam said in a city called de la ville that barely ascetic needs to appear at least two righteousness. What in a beer right? Yes, de la Jana And verily righteousness leads to agenda. What you know, why do La La stuka has
yet to buy in de la TC Dr. That verily a person keeps on being truthful until they are written as being amongst the truthful so that's the thing, the more you practice truthfulness, for the sake of Allah, Allah will make you truthful. For the matter of you taking the steps towards being truthful, you try to correct your tongue for the sake of Allah, you try to correct your, your speech and sorry, your your your actions, for the sake of Allah, you try to correct your heart for the sake of Allah. Like if you feel that you're not being truthful, you say stop for a lie, you're asked Allah to straighten your heart. It's not easy. Sometimes our heart goes that way. We have to straighten
our heart and bring our hearts back on track. Okay, no one's perfect. Sometimes we get what's wasa sometimes you're going to get a feeling of jealousy come in your heart, you have to be aware of it, you have to rectify yourself and you know, and and straighten your heart back in line where it should be. Okay. Um, so, so this is the thing The more you strive for the sake of a lot to make yourself truthful. A lot will make you truthful until you return with a lot as the truthful and you will stay in that path inshallah until you meet meet with a lot of pantalla but the opposite is also true. We're in katiba
Yeah, de la couture. We're in alpha Dora. Yes. D la na, ya know, what do La La Jaco had yet to bear in de la he kept that verily going late to El Cujo. So when a person makes them so fixated, they take it easy, they think they can get away with it. You know, they see the people more than a fear or law and they start to make that their life where they're just constantly lying and deceiving and thinking they're gonna get away with it it leads to it leads to other it leads to other evil actions and that's why unfortunately gets some people may Allah protect us where they start to do a lot of major things
behind closed doors, because they got so used to not fearing a lot in the actions that they begin to make do a lot of major sins behind, you know, when the window when when no one sees, right, because they got used to this this this this way that they have of being deceptive and not being truthful.
What nL foodora, yes, D Ilana Verily, the you know, the evil actions, they lead to the fire. What you know what hula layyah debo had yet to bear in the law, he cadabra. And so a person can go and lie, and live in this life of deception. Until metal detectors, they're written with a law as a cadaver. And they can't even get out of it. It's possible that a person can become so corrupted upon lying and upon evil that they can't even get back out of that. Alright, so this is this is how the law you know, get a sense of this is the danger of lying, you have to realize that it's you might say just one lie here and one lie there, but then you you start to do it all the time you get used
to it until it might lead to more and more and more major things. That's what you got to worry about. That's why even the small lies, you have to set a stop for a lot correct yourself and you know, and move away from that type of upper lap.
Now, the other thing about
the other from the from the rewards and assists in this life as well before the next is that a sin brings the rescue of a law and a way out from hard times.
If we look at the story, if you think about all the stories that a lot of giving up even the story of our Isha radi Allahu anhu when she went through that
Huge trial of a leaf, you know, when she was falsely slandered. But what was it that saved her is her sister in law, she knew in her heart that Allah will rescue her. And she only spoke the truth and she didn't, she didn't try to say something to try to, to get out of it or anything like that she put her trust in a loss of pounds Allah. So it's you have to have that thing in your heart with Allah through your trials, that Allah is gonna find a way out for you. And the same time, you don't resort to a caddy to try to get out of those hard situations. So even if you look at
money, and like I said before, to when she was, you know, at risk of being slammed in her chest today, and the very thing that she prided herself on, of her chastity, and her innocence and purity was going to be put to trial when she had to, you know, approach to people with with her baby, Isola heusler Allah Islam.
And what is it that saved the three men in the case? What is it that saved the three men in the cave, you know, the story, it is three men
in the cave,
and the, the the cave door, like the the stone came and shot over the front of the cave, so they couldn't get out. And so Panama, so
they say to each other, nothing is going to save us except as
the since CDs we've done for a law.
Okay, that's when that's when you that's what's gonna save you in your hard times in your hard times. It's your it's your sincerity that you have with a law in the times of days, that helps you in your times of hardship, like like the prophets or lawyers and said, da da
da da, da da, da da Yeah, he's McAfee shipped up like when you know, a law in your time
of ease as a lot of times Allah knows you in your times if she'd done in your times of hardship. So So what happened is one of them the first one said,
You're alone, this is how you can This is the proper this is this is the proper tawassul to Allah, this is the to what to do back to what soul you want to get your draw answered the correct tawassul from the correct methods to what soon is any anything okay? Correct tawassul to a lot to get your draw and sit is only what's mentioned in the Quran authentic sooner, okay, we don't we shouldn't make tawassul to Allah through integrated means. So from the correct ways of making a tawassul is to mention our to Allah because Allah knows best, a righteous deed that you did sincerely with you all of your heart for the sake of Allah. When no one was watching, especially. So for example, the first
one day I went out, and I, you know, I used to always get the milk for my mother and father, like he had, he had such sincerity in looking after his parents. He had such sincerity in his bitter invalidate, right, and he's looking after his parents, for the sake of a lot. And so he used to every single day, he would go out, and he would get the milk for his parents, like, you know, kids are like his goats or whatever he had, and he would bring it back to his parents and, and always, you know, put his parents first, you know, giving him the New York in before his own families upon a law. And then what happened was one day he came back, and he found his parents had fallen asleep,
because maybe they're very old and they've fallen asleep. And so he said, I stood there waiting for him. I didn't want to wake them up. Because, you know, he's, he's caring about his parents so much. He doesn't want to wake them off. And so he waited to you know, they slept, he stood there waiting at this side for the sake of a law. And today work up is it even my children were crying, supine a lot, but he, he, he stood there and see if Prince woke up and he gave his parents the drink of milk first, because that was a deed that he just made that that he was willing to do that, for the sake of a law, he's small do that no one knows. Like, see, it's sometimes you might have done a lot of
great deeds. But sometimes it's that very small deed that no one knows about. But that's the thing that's gonna save you in a crisis when you when you mentioned that your loss of pantalla right. So you said you're alive if you knew that I did that sincerely for your sake, not seeking anything except your you know, your pleasure, then help us in this, you know, help us out of this, this case and so the rock moved a little bit.
Then the next one, he said, your law. I was so infatuated with my girl cousin. Like he wasn't married and he loved
He's go cousin, like he, you know, he's a young man. And he's got that shabwa. He's got that strong desires. His cousin was so beautiful. And he's so in love with her. He wants to commit dinner with her. Like he's honest. He wants to make a major scene. But he was his desires were very overwhelming.
And so he he asked her a few times, like he tried, he even tried to do something, you know. And she always had refused, but then one time for his cousin was in such financial, you know, financial distress, a very bad financial state. So he told her, if you
if you do that with me, where I've been asking you weed from you, I'll give you this money.
And so she said, okay, because she was so desperate. She said, All right, you know, she was so desperate. But Ben, so he goes with the money. And then they met up. And he was about to imagine that's the hardest, imagine how hard you know, he's in the middle of everything is just about to go ahead and with with this, this heroine, and she said, If you fit, she said, fear a lot and do not break the seal.
Fear a lot did not break the seal. And when she said those words, something shook in his heart. And he went out of it. Like it's very, you know, as we know, if I manage it, that would be a huge test, like all the childhood only imagined this day. And then right at the moment, he had the chance, because of his fear of Allah, He lifted for the sake of Allah. And so that's why I said, You're alive. You know, I was conceived in that moment, then help us in this help us in this situation. And so and so then again, the rock moved. Okay. And then the last one was an employer.
You know, he's got plenty of money, and he had laborers that used to work for him. And, you know, one of the persons one of the people who used to work for him,
he had wages, and the laborer didn't come and collect his wages. Now, what device what a most business people do today? They the mid they don't come to get their wages. 118 can be good. I'll keep them. I'll keep them now. You know, for my son. You know, he comes back on Wednesday. No, I don't owe you anything. So what did this man do? He was surprised to see him. He didn't just let that money sit there. He went, and he invested it for him. So he went and bought animals, he only went bought camels. And he went and bought, you know, sheep, and he went and bought, you know, and they bought all these animals that have offspring.
So one day that nine came back. And the employer told him, oh, by the way, if you got to take your wages,
and then he goes, here's your wages, and it's just like this, all these, you know, like, we kind of appreciate it now. But because we don't care about camels and cows and sheep, but in those days, that's wealth, like that's Mashallah look at this world, you know, he goes, That's not my wealth. He goes, yes, you know, I invested that, for the sake of a lot and you I grew your wealth for you, and now that's all your wealth. So that's why the demand then said, your life, you knew that I did that for your sake, then help us in a situation you know, like, free us from this case. And so it's a panel of in a lot of hands on, completely moved the story. So what I'm trying to show you is like,
that's a story that happens. But that's the same thing for your life. You know, when you're going through a hard time and you're making dua to Allah. Remember that if you were sincere, with a lot in your times of AIDS, a loss of control that will help you in your times of hardship, and it's allowed for you to mention a day in your life if you knew, you know, you know, my sincerity in believing in you, you're Allah, you know, my love for your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so you can mention as part of your tawassul to Allah, you can mention a good day that you've done for the sake of Allah, out of showing your opponents to allow that. Not that Allah owes you something for what
you've done. Okay? But just to show to allow your partner's your sincerity to Allah and how much you have a man in a law that's what it means to do to wrestle with these things to Allah subhanaw taala okay. So we have to realize, like I said before, that when you like when we understand that telling the truth, living a life of authentic, this is the way to be saved and rescued by Allah subhanaw taala. And even though it might seem easy, I like it for to tell lies. But what we need to understand that in the long run, the way to get true safety is the true the true path of safety is is by following the truth, being truthful and standing up for the truth, even when it might seem
easier to tell lies because lies end up catching up with you and protect us from it. Okay, then, this is
point is that from the virtues that the people have said,
from the you know, from the virtues that come to people, this is the true dreams. The true dreams, the more you are truthful in your speech, the more you try to adopt truthfulness in your actions and make it a principle for your life, the more your dreams will come true, the more Allah subhanaw taala is going to show you true dreams and when you do have dreams, they're going to come true the truthful dream the route you decide to fall,
because the prophets that allowed us and said the ones who have the most true dreams from You are the ones who are most truthful in their speech. So the more that a person is truthful in their speech, the more that they will be blessed with having true dreams. But what happens when people who are not sincere and until a lot of wise men have been ticked off those people, often you'll find they have a lot of nightmares, and they have a lot of dreams that disturbed them. And what is the reason because shaitan comes and plays with them because they've left the taqwa of Allah. When you leave the taqwa of Allah when you leave, fearing a lot, and you go to the path of produce, or you go
to the path of corruption, then the sites you open the gates for Shakedown to come and play with you. And so say Tom can come and play with you, part of the way that the Shakedown can play with you is in your dreams. Now, of course, that's not for everybody. When I mentioned we mentioned dreams a few a few a few weeks ago, you might have nightmares for other reasons, like you might be very honest person, but you have nightmares because maybe something disturbing, disturbing happened to you as a child, for example. And so that keeps coming to your dreams that's got nothing to do with you not being truthful. It might be something disturbing or be a tip from our last pantalla because
of things that happened in your life that you know, it's kind of like you're tested with that social dimension as well because we have to always give disclaimers on everything we say in case people get depressed and I want anyone to ever walk away from my list and feeling depressed, okay? And if anybody ever did does, please let me know. So I can, you know, fix it so that I can be more aware of something inshallah. Okay, um,
okay, so I want to finish
this lesson on a single computer by reminding all of us that we need to really try our best to stay far away from the opposite of us. Because Allah has warned about you know, he warned about being amongst the liars like for example, he says, way to yo Mecca de Lille MCAD dB, word to the MCAD DB while to the most element Kathy been on your piano, those who are not from the sincere. And of course what the Macan DB we're talking about, here are the other disbelievers not not, not the believers, but they are you know, did you know that they have the characteristic of, of lying, because they haven't believed in a law, they've lied, because they have turned away from a lie and
rejected the truth of believing believing in a line His Messenger, so along with your sentiment, but what are the signs of the national team that we have to be aware of. So we have to be aware of these these bad traits, because the more that person allows themselves to adopt these bad traits, the more they start to bring corruption into the heart. And if a person is not careful, a heart can become completely corrupted. So it's not we shouldn't take these, we shouldn't take these characteristics of an African lightly. So just to understand something, when we talk about these characteristics of an African, we're not talking about disbelievers. Here, we're talking about believers who can have
these bad traits, they can have these, they can have some of these bad traits, all right, and that can be of different levels. But if we're not careful, it can lead to NFL it can lead to turn it up. If we're not getting rid of these minor, more minor actions have an effect. Okay, so the first of the signs that hypocrites is when they speak, they lie.
So, as I said, You've got to align your speech, you've got to align your speech, you got to train your tongue, to you know, straighten up your tongue, straighten up your tongue, and speak truthfully.
Right. And then the second thing when they make a promise, they break it
when they make a promise, they break it so stay true to your promises.
And then the third thing when they trusted they betrayed that trust, like someone gave you something to look after. And you don't look after that trust and in another generation when they argue to become wicked.
So you know, for example, and they argue, you suddenly see that a whole different side like you know, swear words come out abuse, like I would have been that like that's not that's not good characteristics. So you know, someone that's so nice outside the home as we know the old story goes, but inside the house as a whole
different story may protect us from the fact that the type of new fat is top of hypocrisy to act so beautiful in front of everybody else. But inside the house, you're a whole different story. Okay, so we should be trying to be in alignment with our true self. Yes. So if we look at the first thing the prophets of Allah has a mission about them and their faculty is that when they speak, they lie. So that's why we need to be careful about falling into the sin of lying, don't take it lightly.
It's not something small to start following that path of lying because it leads to the fact that leaves you know, in the hearts, and the more that you start to implement not doing that, the more you'll see truthfulness. Also growing the heart, you'll see that feeling of sincerity. Like the more you try to uphold being truthful, the more you feel, you know, you can feel it in your heart sincerity starts to grow in the heart, that's what we're trying to aim towards.
The problem is with people who lie too much, this is a sad thing that happens, they get so used to lying, they no longer know if they're lying or no longer Honestly, it can happen to some people that they get so used to lying. They don't even know if they're lying or telling the truth anymore. Because they got so used to lying. Like you know, you've all heard I'm sure those people who are
like you can get those
were they called psychopaths.
And they can be such good liars and that they actually lie and I actually don't even realize it anymore because it's a sickness, it's actually a sickness.
Okay, so May Allah protect us and save us from from that. Okay, let's talk about the different aspects of our lives that we need to try to focus on in order to be from 50 defeat inshallah, or at least from being adopting this, this characteristic obviously.
So number one, like we have said,
we need to train our tongues to speak as truthfully as possible, even being ambiguous, even actually exaggerating, we should avoid exaggerating. If you really want to know the proper manners as a believer, not even to exaggerate, we should try to avoid doing this, okay, so to speak, really in conformity with the truth.
And the only time to speak ambiguously when is when there's a real reason to protect yourself. So there is something in his land called atonia.
But even with that, you should try to speak truthfully as much as possible. So an example of that was with Abraham on a sled when he like the Pirate King was truck was going to,
to your home his wife, he said, She's my sister.
So why did he say this is because my meaning my sister in Islam, this is an example of a Tobia, where you say a word,
which is truthful, but it has a different meaning to the person listening to this can be permissible in Islam, as long as it's there's a real reason where you're going to be harmed. And there are some times where it's allowed to also be ambiguous, like, for example, in the state of war, we need to protect from the enemy, or with or even the husband and wife, when it's trying to improve their relationship. Like it's allowed, for example, to say to your husband, or you look so beautiful in the way that even though you might not really think that they are but like, you know, you just like he says, or how do you how do I look over my shoulder look, you don't like that? Like, he look like
you know, a full moon to me, you know, I mean, so there's nothing wrong with exaggerating, this is nothing wrong with exaggerating it, you know, when it's not really truthful, but he doesn't exactly look like a full moon but you know, but you know, to stroke the ego and you know, make him feel good about himself.
There's nothing wrong with doing that when it because it's because why there's a greater purpose, there's a greater muscle Aha, which is to create more love in your husband's heart. Okay, so it's allowed, you know, for the husband and wife to to say things which you know, to improve the relationship that some people unfortunately took us in an evil way. So they say it's alright to lie to my wife, you know, I can just know that doesn't it doesn't mean that it doesn't mean you can just go lie to your wife and be like, go behind her back and be be treacherous as some brothers took this Heidi altavilla It doesn't mean that that's what the meaning of the hudy Okay, so that's a twisted
mentality that tries to use the Hadith. to to to support doing twisted acts, if that does not support twisted actions. Okay, so what is the meaning of the Hadees to bring it back a grandma so that the love is increased between the husband and wife. So he says to her, you're as beautiful as the day I married you.
Of course she's not as beautiful as a day
You marry her. I mean, she's got Facebook, recall that she's like 20 kilos or 30 kilos more than she was. But, you know, under the law, you understand Sorry, it's about it's about creating the law saying words to create law. And even when there's a problem between two sisters in Islam, they're having a fight. And you say, you know what, she's only you know, she only says a good about you, I know that deep down, she really likes you, you know, things like that. So you might say things which are not exactly true. But why you're saying it because you want to bring the relationship back together, and you get rewarded for that. So that those are situations with allowed to twist the
truth, so to speak, to bring it back, right, I must go Aha.
But for other actions, for other reasons, no, it's not allowed to tell lies. It's not allowed to lie. So we need to be honest with ourselves about what's allowed to tell lies about alright. Then the second thing is, when you make drop to a loss, or you recite the Quran, you read the is of the cry, you know,
like, and you're saying, you know, what will fall with or empty, you know, law, for example, and I turned all of my affairs to a lot. But yet, when you look at your heart, you find your heart is turning away to dunya.
Okay, so that means you're not, you know, if your heart is busy in dunya, while you're studying those words, then you're not having
even when you said Fatiha. And you said before lon, you say Alhamdulillah, he won't be loyal me, and you praise in a larger agenda. And you say, and how do we let your allow price speak to you, but your heart is thinking about your children or thinking about your cooking, or what you're going to do after this or you know, want to buy that unit. That means you haven't got seeds in your heart, you haven't you're not really adopting the seeds because what you say your words you're not really thanking and praising along with your heart in the way that you're trying to say with your tongue. See, so we need to try to align our hearts. That's what that's what can actually help you sisters,
when you read the Koran or you say, you try to make your heart in alignment with what you're saying. Even after your prayer, you're saying sapan Allah subhana wa
if your heart is not in alignment with what you're saying, then that's a lack of sense as well. Because you're saying the Panama Glory be to Allah but you're not even thinking about it. You don't even thinking about a lot of times Allah. Okay to try to as The more you try to get your, your heart in alignment with what your tongue is saying, the more this chorus sits in the heart. Alright sisters.
That's, that's that's one thing. Then another thing is being truthful in your Nia in your date, be truthful in your intentions behind your date. And this also connects to having aliqua.
So when you begin to think about people,
okay, when you start to think about
when you start to think about doing things for people doing things for others, like react, you know, showing off these contaminates your sip, this is contaminating your D, and it's going away from having a fiddle.
Okay, it's going from heading six in your Nia from having sincerity in your nia.
And the more contaminated with your deed becomes the more contaminate your deeds become. Right? seeking dunya but you're not really doing it for the sake of a lot of you are seeking dunya out of it, you're seeking your reputation, you're doing it for react, for example, the law that
the more you go away from the more that you go away from sincerity, and that's why who are the three people who will be called to account on your Akiyama because of their because of the lack of six
the the one who used to resort to crime, the one used to give sadaqa and the Mujahideen
and each one says you know if for example the island and wanting to recite the Quran, he says, You know, I sought knowledge for your sake, your law and material for your sake. And I used to read recite the Quran for your sake your law, what does Allah say? Can you you lie, you didn't do that, for that reason, you only do that. So people would praise you and say that he is knowledgeable and that, you know, he's a he's a beautiful recital of the Quran, for example. Okay, and so that is a cause for him to enter the fire. And then they will you know, there are journalists who are, he says, You know, I went and I fought for your sake, your law and then a lawsuit. You lie because
you're lying because you only did that two people would praise you and say what a hero
Praise Muslim, we know we don't have what a great watch I hate, you know, and praise you. And so again, that's a cause for him to enter the fight. And then the one that used to give sadaqa he says, You know, I used to hear sort of call for your sake, your allies to give money for your sake to please you as fit my wealth, to please your life, he says that you only did that two people would say that you're generous. And you're just doing that to you know, like showing off and just showing you're generous. So we have to realize that, you know, don't let Don't let the lack of sincerity come into your dates, because it corrupts your deeds. Members can help us to have it all about
equality with our men in all of our deeds and actions in shaba. Then a fourth one is to be truthful in your vows and promises. So even vows,
even though it's disliked, to make vows, like, and what I mean by that is to put a conditional bow conditional vows on what either they're not allowed, or they recruit, at least. But that's where someone says, You're a law, if you help me get pregnant, I will spend $1,000, in sodapop. So if you said that, that's, that's a righteous bow, okay, that's a righteous Bell, that you have to fulfill it.
You have to fulfill it.
And a lot of people get themselves into trouble with this, and you shouldn't,
and you shouldn't do these vows. The prophets that alone are so sick, that it is only the stingy person, it's just a way of a lot, taking something from a stingy person, because in other words, what they're saying is, if you don't make me pregnant, I won't do that.
So why don't you just keep that so that
when you see that sort of a lot, and make your law, I'm giving you sort of coffee or sex to help me to get pregnant? Why do you do it that way, rather than to make it a condition on a law that he does this for you, you do that for him? Because what you're basically doing, but if you did your vow like that, you have to fulfill it. So you have to fulfill your vows. Alright, so fulfilling vows. If you make a vow to a law, you have to complete it unless it of course it is about disobedience or something like that. All right.
Besides that promises, well, he promised someone, and that's where to promising children.
When you promised children something, if you want your children to grow up trusting you, and very close to you, you need to fulfill your promises to them. And if you can't fulfill your promise, for one reason or another, need to apologize and tell them I'm really sorry. I know I promised that to you. But unfortunately, this has happened now and I won't be able to do that. Okay, but if you don't grow up, if you don't bring up your children, fulfilling your promises, they trust you. And actually distances, you they distance themselves, between you and then because they don't everything you say they know that it never happens. So they don't have hope that would have you say, I don't believe in
you anymore. Okay, so it's very bad to to tell people like to tell your children in particular, you can do something for them and you don't come through with it.
Another thing is
your life to have truth. For instance, see, based on see in your ambitions for law, based in fear in your ambitions, and in your goals for the sake of Allah, like Allahu taala. He tells us in the Quran about like, if you think about the Sahaba how truthful they were, in their goals, how truthful they were in their ambitions. And that's why a lot praised him and said Mina, Mina, three jar one r1 Sadako, ma de la ley from men are those who wish to see in their promises to Allah, like what they promised in their hearts, their sincerity, in their ambitions in their goals. Then they fulfilled those conditions they fulfilled those ambitions and those goals goals for the sake of Allah azza wa
jal. So this is how to be from the CGT Okay, and like I said before, Allah is gonna test you in your seats. I was gonna test you in your seats throughout your life. How truthful are you to lie in a lie you to save face words of Latin Allah, Mohammed the Rasul Allah, how truthful Are you in living up to these words until you die? I was gonna test you. And when you say Ravi to be led, you often will believe Flan Aegina will be Mohammed in some laurenson.
sola helps refer you in vain placing a lot of laws or laws and be pleased with Islam as your religion and be pleased with the Prophet Mohammed so lawyers and as your Prophet and Messenger Allah, all throughout your life in this until you die. Okay. And then
lastly, like I was saying earlier, and that is you need to make your outer your outer
state the same as you're in a state, that's what you should be aiming and that that's talking about when I say that, I mean, make your out of state, outside the house, like your inner state inside the house. So the way you are outside, you try to make yourself like that inside. So you're not a whole different person inside the house, you should be as beautiful as you are two sisters outside. That's how beautiful you should be with your husband. That's how beautiful he should be trying to be with your children and with your relatives. Okay.
So that's, that's the way we should be trying to be nsaa with, when we're talking about the out of state of our out of state of our external practice of Islam, we should try to make our internal, our internal state of our heart the same. So not us wearing all these beautiful appveyor and all this, you know, and our inner state, we don't rectify, we're not striving to, you know, correct our interstate. Alright, so it's not just about the image of being a practicing Muslim, we need to be striving to make ourselves to have true is this land to Allah true, surrendering to a law in our heart?
You know, and focus on the bads of the heart focus on our worship of Allah in the actions of our heart, okay, that's what we should be trying to do inshallah. So that should be equal, like the level I show outwardly is what is what from inside. And anyway, what you will find my dear sisters is those people who are not in alignment they can't last. Okay, when they are, like, mela, protect us from that the people who are not really in alignment, like they try to act like there's something they're not they can't last and that's what that's where you see the the reality comes out eventually that they eventually you because you can't stay you know, like, who can you know, who can
continue to practice Islam when they don't really, you know, they don't really believe in it. Like they can't, you know, do understand you can't so that's what the state the state comes out. So if you're trying to pretend for a game like Metacritic does you get something we get paid? Do Muslims expire Muslims or something like that? They can't last in that state. So sooner or later, they're going to they're going to have to leave it there can't be any man protect us from any fact that's true when our Filipino ticked off and keep us safe from them, because they are the greatest harms. They're the greatest harm to our oma.
So we'll leave it there, my dear sisters. But you know, I asked a lot a lot I asked a lot, Roberta Allah to purify our hearts, from a caddy, and from any fat from lying and from hypocrisy and all diseases of the heart. And I asked a lot of data to fill our hearts with a seat with truthfulness with sincerity for his sake. And I asked a lot of data to give us a class in all of our words, you know about actions and to help us to live a life of sin, to live a life of sin. And, you know, trying to implement what we say in our actions and trying to narrow our hearts in alignment with what we say with our words. I ask Allah to Allah to write raise us amongst the Nabeel was the detail
