the great companion Jose for Tip No your man no no the Allahu is a very special companion. In fact, all of the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are special,

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

and have their own special gifts and relationships with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

However, they follow the law and is special for for what

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

he was the individual whom the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would share the secrets

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

disclose information to Jose for the Allahu Allah in which no other would receive that information. That's special information.

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

In fact, many of the Hadith many of the narrations that deal with Allah to Sir, are the signs of the Day of Judgment, or events and trials and fitting or matters that will happen towards the end of time were relayed by Khalifa typically a man or the Allahu.

00:03:05--> 00:03:19

And I want to mention a particular incident that happened between Khalifa Radi Allahu anhu, the great companion of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and an individual whose name was Scylla from the tambourine.

00:03:22--> 00:03:27

So they follow the law and this hadith is found in stone and evening, mangia. And it is an authentic sound generation

00:03:28--> 00:03:53

in which that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said your dutiful Islamic camellia DeRosa Shia thought that Islam will become worn out just as the clothes they are worn out hotter until when hotelier de Mille CRMO when a sadhaka well and also until time will come. The people will not know what fasting is

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

not charity or the pilgrimage

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

and that the verses of Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

that they will be taken up in one night

00:04:06--> 00:04:29

we have katawa if Amina nurse and that they will remain some people a che whole careers where are those okay the era the older generation, these will remain not meaning that these the only people that will remain but these are the only people that will remain who will have some understanding what what were their understanding be

00:04:31--> 00:04:55

you yo Kowloon meanings of the older generation that they will say, The Rock Anna Alba Anna, that we remember our forefathers, Allah her the hill Kalama La ilaha illallah Fernando noccalula we remember our forefathers the generations that came before us, and we remember we remember they used to say la isla in la la.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

So the one who is hearing this Silla he says to her

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Leafa are the Allahu and

00:05:04--> 00:05:14

they say La Ilaha illa Allah, how Allah Allah Allah benefit them? Well whom Allah de Roon must see, well, our sadaqa well and also

00:05:16--> 00:05:24

they have no idea of what fasting is what charity is and what pilgrimage is, what is the benefit of them saying Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

00:05:25--> 00:05:33

He said this three times, on the first two occasions for the for the Olara, and who ignores him, doesn't say anything to him.

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

Then on the third time, after being on the third occasion, he has asked, are they what are the Allahu Anhu turns to him says, yell Scylla.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

To ng him in a nod,

00:05:45--> 00:05:52

that this Kelemen of la ilaha illallah that they are seeing, will save them from the hellfire.

00:05:54--> 00:06:02

This is in a time where it is clear when we if you look at the Hadith, in more depth, that knowledge is taken away from the people.

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

But what remains with those individuals, those people? And of course, it is all if you like,

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

relative to their time. That's all they had.

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

But all they had they held on to

00:06:21--> 00:06:27

if we look at ourselves now when we compare ourselves and this isn't the latter, later times awkward is the man.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

And you know when you pick up a book,

00:06:30--> 00:06:43

oh, a very famous book by Eben cathedra himolla, talking about the signs of the Day of Judgment. Even girthier Rahim Allah will talk about a great Ireland who lived, what 750 years ago, 800 years ago,

00:06:44--> 00:06:51

people were thinking signs of the day of judgment or who was the man, the end of times, they were thinking it's far away.

00:06:53--> 00:07:05

When people read the same things awkward as a man, they think, you know, the end of times thinking it's far away, centuries of lost. And we are centuries closer to our code as the man

00:07:07--> 00:07:11

with our life as it stands at the moment changing on a daily basis.

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

The world is a different place. Now.

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

Towards the end of time, people will only know La ilaha illallah, but they will hold on to it.

00:07:22--> 00:07:24

Because they don't have anything else.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

Relative to them. That's absolutely everything.

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

But if we look at ourselves now,

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

the access to knowledge,

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

your devices masajid.

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

You are in a great blessing.

00:07:43--> 00:07:49

So in relative terms, who is in a better position? Yes, they may have less.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

But what they have less of? They hold on to everything.

00:07:54--> 00:08:05

And now for us? At the very least. Is it not enough for us? Or is it now upon us to actually know the meaning of La Isla Illallah

00:08:07--> 00:08:31

not something that we inherited from our forefathers, and that we have access to understandings, what it actually means, what it means to be a Muslim, that Allah subhanaw taala gave us guidance to preserve your Islam to preserve preserve your identity as a Muslim. But there are so many things which will add up that if you're not careful, this world the life

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

the many celebrations that are pushed and given to you. When you isolate one celebration, it doesn't really matter.

00:08:41--> 00:09:02

The celebration of the New Year's or the Christmas or the Valentine's or the mother's day, this day and that day, if you isolate one of them, maybe it's not such a big problem, but it's the principle that what guidance did Allah Tabata Allah give to you? To preserve your deen herbal Deen, one of the objectives of Islam is to protect itself.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

And anything that may take anything away from that

00:09:07--> 00:09:14

should be then put to one side. It is not there to restrict your life. It is there to preserve your life.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

So how important that is for us to understand the reality

00:09:22--> 00:09:26

and we're talking about the foundation of our deen the very basics of our religion.

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

And at times it is important for us to go back to the very building blocks of our deen

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

to understand what it means to say La ilaha illallah

00:09:38--> 00:09:52

the when Allah to barakaatuh Allah tells us in that dinner in the law he'll Islam that the deen accepted only to Allah subhanaw taala is Islam and what is Islam is to surrender to Allah subhanaw taala with what Colima

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

La ilaha illallah This is the key. This is the foundation of everything and for us to be

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

You're gonna run off that is the biggest calamity any individual can face on Earth. Not loss of money, not loss of health.

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

But the misunderstanding concerning their own religion.

00:10:16--> 00:10:30

Islam having a misunderstanding of how do you worship? Allah subhanaw taala May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all Akula Cody how there was still a fear Allah Allah Allah comically them for several Hebrew in the who who will follow him

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are early he was Herbie he a geometrical praise belongs to Allah AMITA peace and blessings of Allah Allah Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:01--> 00:11:08

so the theory of what I've just said to you you agree with very important yes Masha Allah good, a good word on the member.

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

Something that was mentioned on the day of Juma was a good word.

00:11:15--> 00:11:15


00:11:17--> 00:11:27

this is part of their in this is part of the knowledge that is given to you from the Quran and the Sunnah. But it doesn't stop there, and should never stop there.

00:11:29--> 00:11:29

Because you're

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

acquiring the knowledge is half of the job.

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

The next half of the job is you implementing it

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

and allowing that knowledge to become part of your identity.

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

So what is the hammer now?

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

What is the action now

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

there's no need to refer you to the books of

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

the greater Allama although important,

00:11:57--> 00:12:02

something very simple for you to refer to something every single one of us have memorized.

00:12:03--> 00:12:09

something all of us from the smallest of children from the age of three and four and five, we teach them

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

teach them and know them irony the meanings of what Surah two Fatiha because within sewer to refer to Omar Quran,

00:12:20--> 00:12:26

the mother of the chapters of the Quran, the message of the entire Quran you can find in Surah 230 for

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

the meanings of la ilaha IL Allah all there in Surah 230.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

So this is the Amel for us to go back to Surah Surah Fatiha to understand Surah Fatiha

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

and how that will increase my knowledge

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

in La ilaha illAllah.

00:12:49--> 00:13:06

So, if you're asked La Ilaha illa Allah what does it mean to you? Maybe you'll give a meaning of its man of its meaning, you know what? Its intended meaning there was no one deserving or worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala one of the translated meanings. Okay.

00:13:08--> 00:13:29

But when you read sort of Hotez there is there's something more than that. When you say Alhamdulillah, here or below the mean, or praise thanks it belongs to and it's due to Allah subhanaw taala. Allah Allah mean, the Lord of the Worlds. So Allah Jalla wa Ala is a ROB what is Rob?

00:13:30--> 00:13:49

The Creator, the Sustainer, the owner, the control of all of the affairs in the universe. So when you say Alhamdulillah horrible, I mean your affirmation of la ilaha illAllah. Part of that is to affirm Allah's Lordship, that He created everything

00:13:50--> 00:13:54

that he said hello to add is in control of the universe, nothing happens except by His permission.

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

And that he subhanaw taala is the owner of everything and sustains everything

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

of Rahmani r Rahim.

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

The Most Merciful the Most Beneficent,

00:14:06--> 00:14:14

not to to Allah subhanaw taala will Allah Hill, Ismail Hasina? Not to join to Allah Jalla wa Ala belongs the most beautiful names and attributes.

00:14:16--> 00:14:34

Allah subhanaw taala is all encompassing mercy to all of the universe. Those who believe those who disbelieve are Rahim that special mercy that is given only to the believers. Another aspect of Allah has to heat of la ilaha illallah His names and attributes.

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

Maliki omit Dean or Maliki yo Medina the owner the king of the Day of Judgment.

00:14:41--> 00:14:47

All accountability goes back to Allah subhanaw taala he can go to a year kind of studying You alone we worship

00:14:48--> 00:14:53

you alone we seek aid, the essence of la ilaha illallah

00:14:54--> 00:15:00
