Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Barakatuh it's your brother Yeah. Hey Ibrahim welcoming you from my home here in Perth, Western Australia to Islamic q&a via the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel. It's a pleasure and an honor to be able to join with you. We always we begin with the praise of Allah. We send our prayers of peace upon our own every year Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam join us and of course it is another occasion for us to gather together in harmony seeking that which is a betterment for this worldly life of ours. Hoping for an eternal reward with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in jedna to filled out a lot. I mean, it's a pleasure. I

00:01:00--> 00:01:44

look forward to each and every Wednesday, noon London time it happens to be a little bit past 8pm here for me in Perth, I look forward to receiving your calls via Islam channel in shot a lot live on air as we continue throughout this one hour session. I hope in shot love with the short interruption for that at the end of Salado both, that you will remain with me and we will continue thereafter in sha Allah of that break today in sha Allah while you get yourselves ready for your calls and to connect with us and perhaps your call could be a betterment and benefit to those who may be listening and having the same question but just didn't have the opportunity to ask it. That may

00:01:44--> 00:02:28

Allah use you for that good in Shabbat. We wanted to speak about this sooner of dua, or the sooner of drop the multiple plural ways of increasing our connection with Allah, you know, we're dry and this has been a series that we've been covering over the last few weeks together and Hamdulillah we wanted to re emphasize the importance of connecting ourselves to Allah. We said that dua is of two levels and of two types. The first and most important one, the one that is always answered by Allah is that do I have a sunnah that you are appraising magnifying extolling virtue and praise upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and that is in the habit of thick recitation of the Quran, we understand that

00:02:28--> 00:03:07

we will never be able to praise Allah as he deserves. Or bene Matt I've at Nakhodka a bed that take Oh Allah, we will never be able to worship you, to adore you to love you to fear you, as much as you are truly worthy of knowing Granger Subhanak with a Subhana wa Tada. However, our aim is to mimic as much of the suit of the prophets I sell them in our connection to Allah to make ourselves worthy of being answered. So that is the first type of drive we have our first caller on the line, masha Allah today, we're off to a quick pace before Salatu Salam Alikum. Caller? How can I help?

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

Well,

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

I have a question about

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

what do you do with

00:03:17--> 00:03:27

items that belonged to a deceased person? For example, it was a child who passed away just recently regarding to yesterday.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

And the room is still full.

00:03:32--> 00:03:43

And I just wanted to know, at what stage do you use? Can you leave things as they are? Or do you have to pack things away? Because

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

I'm just mindful that we don't want you to turn into a shrine or anything like that.

00:03:50--> 00:04:35

If you could please, advise a child or really young child, Mattila or humhub May Allah subhanaw taala have mercy upon the departed man lucky patients to the family give Sadhguru to their heart to their mind. May Allah make this child wait for them in the care of Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam at the entrance of Jenna, as the prophets I send them for tells us that the one who has lost the fruit of their heart who waits for them in Jannah until that they arrive on the Day of Judgment. Leah's habba, who elaborated that they will hold them by the hand and lead them to their abode their mansion in paradise May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the family and the friends and the parents and

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

the siblings worthy of this honor, a lot more. I mean, I can only imagine that that the heartache and the sadness that this news may have brought and of course when we are speaking about the artifacts that are left behind the clothing and the toys and things of this nature, things that might have been used and things that there was hope for them to be used. All of that would be really weird as

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

A part of the remediation process and a part of the therapeutic process of the parents recovering from such a traumatic experience. And one of the things that I would say to you, my dear sister, may Allah subhana, Allah grant us support and grant all of them and us support is to take things in stages and steps. So don't be in a rush to make a decision about items and giving them away because at times, and I've seen this personally, sometimes a person has parted with something, saying, Oh, we don't need this anymore, you know, you can have it and then a few days later, I wish I had kept that. So what I would say is there is no directive from the Quran from the Sunnah, that speaks about

00:05:45--> 00:06:31

this in any capacity except to say that the parents interest the siblings interest, the family's interests are the ones that are to be put forward. And we have our tradition of Aza at where we have these days of mourning, that usually in the very least are three days, the very least or three days where the family visited, that food is brought to them they don't need to cook they don't need to clean that this is something where support is just we we wrap a blanket around the of love. And may Allah Subhana Allah allow you and all who, who find themselves in a position to help and to be of comfort in this situation to be that great support, inshallah. So be that, you know, that blanket of

00:06:31--> 00:07:15

love that surrounds a family. Now, if there is something that's too painful for the father and mother or the siblings to witness, then that can be something that can be hidden behind a blanket or removed from a particular room or tucked away somewhere where it's, you know, kept in in wait until they can make that decision themselves. So would it be a parent Driven Decision, let it be the siblings that come together make that decision together, and naturally as the heart begins to mend, as the trauma begins to subside as time from the baraka of Allah, as the time continues to move forward, they will be able to make those effective decisions. In that regard. If we're having to ask

00:07:15--> 00:07:59

about it, it means it is still too early. It will be a natural process as a part of our healing in sha Allah, may Allah subhana wa Tada grant them support and how beneficial it is that we're speaking about to app once again I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to cool their heart to send second and tranquility into their home that Allah Subhana Allah returned to them better than what they have lost in this dunya and akhira that ALLAH SubhanA wa that makes them a family engender a family for Jen now they are a family for Jana and may Allah make them a family engine met together? What an incredible trial for them, for ALLAH SubhanA wa to Allah to test them with, that they become a

00:07:59--> 00:08:44

symbol of patience and a sign on to all of us have their faithfulness in Allah subhanaw taala Allah muscle bottomhole May Allah grant them patience, Allah Surbiton, may Allah establish them firmer, and may Allah subhanho to add to help them hold on to each other, tighter. And finally, as a message to our viewers and listeners, if we are of witness to such a sign, this is an idea from Allah subhanaw taala. To myself in you this trial, let it be a sadhaka that has been given to us in the passing of this child for the hundreds and 1000s of viewers that are listening to me now. Let this be something that moves you to hold your children tighter, to appreciate your spouse more, to be

00:08:44--> 00:09:32

more giving and more empathetic, and to be those who are willing and able to heal rather than to just hold accountable to pick up and to comfort those who find it necessary, especially our own children. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to learn from this moment and to make it as a reward installed upon the family who have gone through this trial Allah I mean, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to ease their pain and to uplift them and to grant them higher and Baraka in this dunya and akhira. Allah, I mean, we were speaking about and we said the first most important type of job is to say and having to do that. And having heard this question it reminds me of the Hadith of the house

00:09:32--> 00:09:51

engender that is called bait to have the Abode the mention of the praise of Allah and the authentic hadith of the prophets. I seldom mentioned that there is a house in Jenna, for those who are praising to Allah with tragedy such as described to us strikes. We have another caller on the line as salaam alaikum. Caller How can I help

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

when it comes to law?

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

Yes, Sister, how can I help you today?

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

I have a question regarding maybe Maria Malaya salaam, actually regarding

00:10:08--> 00:10:16

wanting to know, you know, after she delivered the Salah is she ever gone to anyone? And

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

the other question is the

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

winner be Sally?

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

Was she still alive?

00:10:28--> 00:11:12

While he was not Allahu barakato our question. Our question is about money. Yeah, Molly has Salam money. I'm the mother of Isa money. Mentor Imran Ali has Salam, the mother of Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him. And there were two questions that were asked. The first of them is, what did she marry after having delivered Jesus Alayhis Salam, and in our texts as Muslims, that there is silence on it from the words of the prophets. I seldom in terms of an authentic hadith. But we do know that there is a statement from the prophets. I said to him, that one of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Genda will be money money has set up and from that would have might

00:11:12--> 00:12:00

have inferred that she actually remained celibate up to the point of her death, and that one of the rewards she has in Jeddah is also being in the company and as a wife of our nividia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The second question was, what's she alive when a Saudi Islam was saved? There is difference of opinion amongst the scholars of Islam, in the biblical narration, and in what are referred to as is surah. Avi yet the stories told in the scriptures of the nation before as Benny Israel he, she was remaining alive. But is there a definitive statement from the Quran or the Hadith of the Prophet, I tell him that verifies this or negates this, there is no particular text

00:12:00--> 00:12:23

that is authoritative, and therefore we remain silent about it. But we can narrate that in the Bible. This is what it said that she was alive. When he was raised up for us we believe he was raised up, peace and blessings be upon him. alayhis. Salam, as as to is it definite Allahu Taala Allah, just like Allah here for that.

00:12:24--> 00:12:33

Question, sister. So that hadith of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, he said peace and blessings be upon him.

00:12:34--> 00:12:59

That when a person has lost one of their children, Allah sends angels who they are commanded to observe the family. And they are asked what did they say and if they said that haven't did it, Allah says right for them a house in Geneva and call it the house of praise of Allah in all conditions. I hope you'll join me in sha Allah shortly after our break for them salam ala?

00:14:26--> 00:14:55

For those of you who are watching online on my social media streams do let us know where you're watching from chat a lot. All right, we got a question from Haley Hussein. Can that grand daughter perform Umrah on behalf of her sick grandmother? Yes, she can perform if the illness is an illness that is not recoverable. Or if there is no longer hope for the grandmother to be able to go to camera on her own. A person is able to do that and it could be even somebody who's not related in chatlog

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

what is the single best advice for women for

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

And then men I guess I'll give you the same advice. It's really simple do what's right because it's right stay away from what's wrong because it's wrong not because you're observed or anyone is there to witness it can a woman whose husband passed away travel with her daughter she's 53

00:15:17--> 00:15:33

If it's within the period if it's within the period of mourning then no otherwise after it if there is you know, safety and guarantee and you know all of this COVID It's not a major issue, then it should be fine but with caution insha Allah

00:15:35--> 00:15:44

does breastfeeding break will do no breastfeeding does not break will do. No, that's a good question. Mashallah. Breastfeeding does not break although

00:15:46--> 00:16:24

what other questions are there I might have missed a couple you're firing away on all pistons. It's good to see people from Branton watching my shop Ah, that's great. Where else are you guys watching? We have people from Italy, masha Allah. We have people from Sydney and Hamdulillah. All around different parts of the world. All right, let's look at the other social streams through Cairo, Egypt, chat. How do we reconcile the fact that the prophets of Allah who it was LM had the status of very small, infallible yet we have accounts of Musa accidentally killing someone, or Adam eating from the forbidden tree? How there's no problem with that at all. Musa alayhis salam had not

00:16:24--> 00:16:52

received revelation yet. Adam Alayhis Salam, the mistake of eating from the tree is part of his humanity, and being and that's why they're really mad. They don't list Adam Alia Salam as being a prophet or being a messenger in that sense, because he was not there was nobody with him to lead other than himself and his spouse. Also the concept of a smart infallibility is from doing wrong

00:16:53--> 00:17:32

is something that is established for all of the prophets and messengers in the capacity deemed for them by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. All right, any other questions do kick them in, we're about to restart our live session. With Islam channel, you're also welcome to come online with me there. Just go to Islam channel.tv Click on live and you'll be able to see the way to be able to answer those questions or to bring forward your questions in sha Allah. I look forward to engaging with you there. The evening that hate time. Any other questions on

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

we got people from Orlando mashallah, Mashallah.

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

All right, we have a final question I guess we'll take

00:17:45--> 00:18:06

from our family in Orlando, what deeds benefit dizzy, deceased parents? This is a question that of course, has multi dimensional so we try to cover it as quickly as possible Inshallah, um, what are the deeds that benefit a deceased parent. So the first, the first benefit

00:18:07--> 00:18:44

is that which is established by the words of the prophets, I send them doing Hajj on their behalf, if they haven't done it, or on their behalf, if they haven't done it, fasting, the day that they owed that weren't able to be fulfilled, paying off their depth, giving sadaqa in any of its generality on behalf of them, all of those are things established from the words of the Prophet I said, some of the roadmap, the majority of roadmap then said, anything, there is no Hadith where the prophet was ever asked, Can a person can I do this on my behalf of my parents, and he said no. So that Matt said, from this weekend, understand that anything good that is done in the name of another

00:18:44--> 00:19:28

individual, from our family, from those who we love, would have been accepted by the prophets, I sell them. So anything from the righteous act can also be done in that sense. And that's where you get that one understanding of their odermatt about reading Quran on behalf of someone, or, you know, building a water well, on behalf of someone, nobody did that at the time of the prophesy sell them, but it's seen as something that is praiseworthy. And that concept, if you want to research that is called the action of Esau Sol can benefit reach someone who is not engaged in doing it. Now, the understanding, of course, is because I have love for this person, it's something they must have done

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

for me to have that love for them. They were my father, my mother, they were a dear friend, one of my teachers, whatever it may be, it moved me to want to do something good. So the good that they've done is actually the motivation of the good deeds that they're going to earn through my charity through my act of action on their behalf, and therefore, it legitimizes it, the other camp of Ridhima which I I understand the rationale, but I tend to lean towards the first camp which is that any righteous deed that is done with that

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

intention we we hope in Allah accepting it on behalf of another. The second group of Roma are like no, the prophets are excellent had said that when the person passes away there are three things that benefit them, which is

00:20:15--> 00:20:57

I saw that my God yet and established sunder Hudbay did alimony in terms of a knowledge that they left behind, or whether them solid or left or righteous child who continues to invoke God and the Prophet didn't say well don't sila here for Sadako I'm to give charity and so on the Prophet just limited to two. Now the answer to that, of course is from the first group is that those are the things that the person himself has done as a good deed. Not necessarily that the Prophet is saying somebody else can do a good deed for them. I highly recommend you do a good deed on my behalf. May Allah subhanaw taala move your heart to do it, that you you know donate towards a water well and

00:20:57--> 00:21:38

make it in my name and put me as a part of it without me knowing May Allah Subhana Allah Allah write that for me and move your heart towards that in you doing that even though I'm alive and well and Chatelet doing my own good deeds May Allah make us better than what you may know of us. Even though I'm doing that it is hoped even though I'm alive that your intention and love having done that will be rewarded to me so why would it be any different if a person has passed away? Not Allah. Hopefully that is of some benefit and healthy evening to Allah. I think we're gonna get started once again with our q&a with Islam channel and always in the breaks I try to take a little bit of time with you

00:21:38--> 00:21:56

like that a lot. Do keep letting us know where you're watching from it's always nice to see you know, I'm in Orlando and I'm in here in there and if you do want get online, send your question and give a phone call to the live broadcast. It'll be great to have you online with us for your q&a inshallah.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

Does that come a lot here

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Aloha CYNTHIA

00:22:12--> 00:22:25

So just another minute and chat line will be back on air if there's another question from the Instagram people I'll take it as well in chat live there's another question the last minute hopefully a quick one that we can get through

00:22:28--> 00:22:36

you can type it away inshallah mashallah we have from the Philippines as well a lot of my verdict from Pakistan martial law

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

a lot of music we're about to count on the land and.

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

All right, shall law

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

question in the box for you, I'm sorry, I'm not going to be able to go into into the boxes. But you can

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

answer that question.

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

If you if you're able to ask a question, just ask it here. I'm not able to check

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

direct messages and things like that.

00:23:23--> 00:23:24

Just a common law fair.

00:23:32--> 00:23:48

Okay, got another question our student loans considered to be reversed. The general answer is no, they are not considered to be River. This is an augmented system where there's guarantors who are looking after it. Most of their odermatt do not consider it as a river

00:23:49--> 00:24:29

that is Muharram for us or that is sinful in sha Allah. And may Allah subhanaw taala bless you in the pursuit of your education. If you want to read a little bit more on that. The British Board of Islamic scholars who I'm an associate board member, have written on this document, you can find it online and chat lot. There's numerous authoritative pieces and if you're here with us in Australia, the Australian National Imams Council has also issued and edited a fatwa on that, that it is considered Halal in sha Allah the heck system is considered Halal a few seconds. All right, we're going live once again to Zakouma lawfare.

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

Last Sunday, I learned

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

610

00:25:12--> 00:25:51

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh it's your brother. Yeah, hey, Brahim welcoming you from my home here in Perth, Western Australia, into your homes and into your different places, wherever you are around the world through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel, may Allah subhanaw taala continue to connect our hearts even though we may be of a physical distance away from each other. We've had two wonderful colleagues and contributors who have been reached our time and I look forward to other callers calling in live in sha Allah for this call in session. In the meantime, we're speaking about diet and we spoke about the first two. The first type of drop is where a person

00:25:51--> 00:26:24

turns his attention to a lot praising a lot magnifying a lot making themselves aware of Allah and that Allah is to respond to them in the second type of dua, which is when they make a request, Dr. Pollock was so early, and that requesting of Allah has particular etiquettes in particular manners and we pray that Allah Subhana Allah beautifies us with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Some of the manners that we've spoken about in detail in previous sessions, is to know that Allah subhana wa to Allah

00:26:25--> 00:27:11

enters our due at first when we've abstained from how long food haram things that we view her on things that we listen, where, where we are of those who are keen, to be sincere in our day, to put our hope in Allah, our love and Allah, our fear of Allah at the center of our plea with ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala we know that Allah subhana wa Allah wants us to engage in good deeds before, during and after are dry and that's why when you associate to you know, usually when you're going to Umrah or Hajj because they make dua, it's not because I'm there, it's because of what you're doing when you want that person to make dua and therefore the sanctity of during the month of Ramadan or while

00:27:11--> 00:27:20

you're fasting in other than Ramadan when your prayers, all of those are things that uplift our will. We have a caller on the line as salaam alaikum. Caller How can I help

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

please

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

elaborate on this issue that

00:27:35--> 00:27:41

we have to focus on locally, nationally and internationally.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

We have to focus

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

on just

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

like

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

I'm in the hall and question on myself.

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

I'm sorry, I didn't I didn't understand the question My dear sister if you can repeat it

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

nationally or

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

internationally, we have to focus on

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

the issues.

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

Yes, okay. Just like Allah.

00:28:19--> 00:29:00

Allah here, one of the things I think that's important is to make Islam something that is appropriate for each place and each time in a way that people can understand it. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to teach people in a way that their minds can understand what is being said, some of the Sahaba who were much more knowledgeable, he could share with them more information than others. And we have the statement Valley or the Allahu anhu, where he would say how do you feel Naza Allah consider holy him. When you speak to people about faith and God, speak to them in accordance to what their mind is able to absorb and understand. Otherwise, do you want for

00:29:00--> 00:29:43

them to deny God for the problem being you couldn't explain Allah and Islam properly. And it's important for us to be of those who have the eloquence of tongue, the presence of mind the training and qualification to speak about the deen of Allah Subhana Allah in a way to the limit of what we are able to speak and not go beyond it. All of us we have one and more who are more knowledgeable than us. But that doesn't mean that the one who is more knowledgeable than us should be the only one who speaks about Islam. Sometimes somebody who has a humble amount of knowledge may have a greater effect because of their connection with others connection with the culture connection with language

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

connection with sport, that they can influence a great many people culturally towards faithfulness and faithful practice than others. Each and every one of us has a role to play the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said boldly who I knew when I even if it is

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

Just a single verse even if it's just one area, transmitted, translated, take it from me and share it with others, myself and yourself, my dear sister, we all have a role to play in our different levels in different capacities in seeking to please Allah subhanho wa Taala it is important for us to pay attention to the context of how we are discussing Islam, to use the language that is appropriate in the right context and the right images. And the right mindset becomes very, very important, just like there is Dawa. There is also sadly on that web to undo the damage that others have done because of a bad character or false understandings or teaching something that is not

00:30:48--> 00:31:34

authoritative and common and truthful in its practice. May Allah protect us from that alone. I mean, we returned to the ways that we can make our drive more intimate we said to do good deeds before we make dua and ask Allah during it and after it to make will do before we make dua is a sooner the privatize LM not a mass but increases our presence with Allah to try and face the Qibla to sit in in a position of humility before Allah some of the odermatt they suggest to sit as if you were in Tasha hood in your Salah to make the praising of Allah before the request of Allah to make salawat Durood upon our NaVi Mohamed, Allah masala, Mohamed Mohamed Canossa also lay data Ibrahim Ali Rahim Allah

00:31:34--> 00:32:17

vertical Allah Mohammed wider early Mohamed Kemer Barak dalla Ibrahim while early Ibrahim Philomena in Mecca, hamidou Majeed to spread out our hands to Allah to extend our hands as one who is seeking as one who is a beggar and to raise our hands to Allah subhana wa to Allah is a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, so I sell them in many of his dua to raise it to a level that is up to the shoulders that narrated by the amendment Buddha would and in the Muslim devil, Imam Muhammad, to do so with humility and with respect as if you are one who is a beggar seeking that the blessing would fall into your hand from the master ALLAH SubhanA. Wa to Allah mentioned your helplessness to Allah

00:32:17--> 00:33:04

What is the de la I only raised my complaint and my sadness to Allah. You were the only one who knows me Oh ALLAH in what is it my heart and the pain that I feel and the desperation that I have? You're the only one who I speak to it this way, for no one is worthy of be complaining to you, other than you Allah, to be of those who become acquainted with the names of Allah and to use them correctly in our dua that we ask Allah Yes. Or Dr. O Allah Who hears I want to hear my drive? Yeah Mooji would do i Oh ALLAH who answers the DUA Allah magic

00:33:04--> 00:33:53

Neha hammer rocky mean Yeah, Todd Allah you are the old Abel all powerful all capable. Yo man you are the most gentle and merciful Yeah, Allah the Avani Oh Allah you are the one who has no need what adults are clear I am the one in need. I stand before you You are the one who enriches and needs no enrichment. Allah. You are an Aziz al Habib. You are the almighty the old praise. You are al Hakim the wise Oh I thought in your wisdom if this is right for me, give it to me. If this is bad for me restricted for me Oh ALLAH. Oh Allah you know what is in my future if giving me this now is not good for me. Don't enter this drop down for me. Oh Allah. Enter it at the right time you are al Hakim.

00:33:53--> 00:34:45

Yeah, Allah made to have with the names and attributes of Allah. The names and attributes of Allah are intentional for our da Allah tells us in the Quran, with regards to his names, to Willie let him Esma Krishna, for the rule who we have to Allah alone belongs the most complete, unchanging, complete names, beautiful names, as Matt will her snap. For drew who affair This is fat. It's an AMA. So always regularly, constantly, consistently and only to him. Raise your complaint raise your DUA raise your request to ALLAH SubhanA home with Allah to Drew who be using those names. How do we use the names of Allah that the name that we use we try to take on its character ourselves. So we

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

say you're a man we are Rahim. Allah you R Rahman r Rahim. You are the most compassionate, the most gentle, the most loving, the most forgiving, which means that in my life in my capacity with my friends with my family with my workmates,

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

with my children, with my parents, I must show a Rama that I seek from Allah, I must show the mercy that I'm asking of Allah. In every instance, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Quran and in every instance in the sooner the prophet Isaiah makes complete symmetry between the request that we have of Allah and what we are asked to give in our relationship with others for Allah, it'll hammelmann Fill out the Hancock members Semar if you show compassion on this earth to those who live with you, the one beyond the heavens will show you his compassion, or Rahi more than your humble man, the prophets I send them says, Those who are compassionate those who are merciful, the Lord Almighty Subhana wa to

00:35:47--> 00:36:35

Allah is the One who will show them compassion and mercy. In the one who gives, in fact, the one who spends in the way of God in the way of those who are in need, Allah who return it to them, the one who gives is the one who is actually destined to receive and therefore there is perfect symmetry in our relationship, and in our attitude with ALLAH SubhanA went to Allah. So put your hands out to Allah, call him out with his names and attributes. Be sincere in your DUA. Do not just mimic words, even just words of the prophets I send them without seeking to connect with them and to put them into practice. mention the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala abstain from trying to be overly

00:36:35--> 00:37:25

rhythmic from trying to be one who is you know, making a plea of their behavior and in their habit, be someone who is grounded in it. It's not necessarily the word you use but that intent of your heart. Be a one who is soft in their words in there to soften their voice soft in the choice of words. Allah subhanho wa Taala he taught us this in mentioning among Zachary yet well I'm I couldn't be da he cannot be shocker. Yeah, I never gave up making dua, you always entered my dua, Allah and Allah describes his drop is not out of battle. Anita and Javier when he would call him to his Lord, he did it with softness and humility, softness and voice meaning a low voice, softness and boys, it

00:37:25--> 00:38:13

was personal to him. He didn't want the whole world to know his softness in that he would make him do so plentiful Lee, that his voice eventually became hushed. He was making to act so much, that naturally you begin to quiet in your relationship with Allah. We also hear that you're out of the teaching of the prophets, Elijah and he saw some of the Sahaba raising their dua making the decree very loud raising their drop very loud. So he said lb O Allah unphysical. confine your voices low your voices in Netcom, Latin Runa are some men were hot? How dare you, you know project your voice and screaming out this way. You are not calling out to Allah, who is beyond hearing you and unable

00:38:13--> 00:38:59

to witness and see you. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah knows that you are in your heart before it reaches your lips, Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows that you are you will make before you have even thought to make it for he is the one who blesses us with the hedaya. To call out to Him Subhan Allah to Allah, so have this modesty one of the ailments and one of the things that eliminates the drop being answered is what is referred to by their own mat as an error it does drop, to be rebellious and to be blameworthy in how you make do. And one of those ways is to shout it out, projected out to make it out loud for the benefit of others not sincerely in your heart between you and Allah, or to

00:38:59--> 00:39:47

make rhythmic overtones with it. Make dua in a soft voice is collected by all of the six books of Hadith from Abbey Musa al Ashari, also from your drop is to utter dua in phrases that are transcribed from Rasulullah Salah lights and try to use the to the prophets I send them he would teach us he would say Subhana Allah would be handy, wipes away our sins, it doesn't have in it a request for his defer it you know, Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah would be handy, wipes away my sins, even though I'm not asking for my sins to be white. But that knowledge is only given to us by who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and therefore learn the tradition learn the Sunnah

00:39:47--> 00:39:55

of some Allah or yourself, trying to make an dua that encompasses the needs of your deen and dunya together.

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

Make dua not just for one aspect of your life, not just for your

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

Well, not just for your health, not just for your family, not just for your children, not just for your education, make sure that is balanced that has the dean and the dunya. And therefore one of the most famous drop in the Quran and in the life of the prophet Isaiah banner, Tina Dunia has said, We're Finn, Aphrodite has ended, both of them are put together. Why? Because this is the most proper formula for making dua. You put the two together, deen and dunya. Do not separate them in your DUA don't overly emphasize one at the detriment of the other end. If you're going to ask for something ask for the absolute or more so than you do for the Dunia because the Dunia its effect is never

00:40:45--> 00:40:52

guaranteed. Well, you may be asking for something that becomes your greatest detriment. May Allah protect us Allah, he

00:40:54--> 00:40:59

may do out for yourself but do not ever make dua only for yourself at the

00:41:01--> 00:41:49

extent where you forget others and therefore most of our dough as you find in the Quran are in the plural sort of mentality is probably the best example. Allah we begin with praising Allah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu lillah Europa Isla me or Rahman Rahim, all of it is the praise of Allah the merciful the gracious man Nikhil Medina you alone are the one who judges me on the day of judgment you are the master of all creation enough that day of judgment. Yeah, can Abu can stir in only you do I worship only you do we put our trust in and ask for notice it is a plural yakka Naboo it's not Abu it's not i Where's your Naboo even though you're the only one reading even though

00:41:49--> 00:42:37

you're the only one on your own. You include everybody in it hoping that this will be pleasing to Allah. It did not lead all of us as a plurality. Although I may be alone, I'm making time for my wife and my children and my son and my daughter and my cousin, my neighbor, and for the Muslim and non Muslim Idina lead all of us to the Serato study, guide us all to the street path Sirata levena And I'm dialing in the path of those who you favored before us. Halal malubay, one authority and it's important to also make dua in a good way. For others. There are very, very small occasions with a prophet made a drop of destruction, an individual's never as a collective, he never made dua

00:42:38--> 00:43:27

against all of Rajesh. It was against particular individuals that he would name the Allah Who Malika wrote by the Aviemore I, he labels him because of that man's evil and wicked, right? So Allah Are you a seller tempat yet be lab, whatever him and his wife by name they are focused on, but in generality, the job of the prophets I send them was always one of optimism, and always one that was seeking good for others, even those who are enemies of him at the time. The Prophet used to make dua for Abu Jen, can you believe it? I bhujette. I would recommend Misha, the father of all evil and ignorance, the most evil adversary the one described as the pharaoh of the Omaka prophesy Salem, the

00:43:27--> 00:44:17

Prophet used to say Allah is in Islam. There had been a happy Rajalakshmi like Oh Allah, strengthen Islam with one of these two who is more pleasing to you, or marblo hotpot, or I will help me finish whichever of the you will make that even though this was an evil man, he would still make drop for him sallallahu alayhi wa ala early, he was happy. We're selling peace and blessings be upon him. That is the document that we have. I'll give you a beautiful example, from the tradition of the lemma. One of the great Imams is an imam YBNL Josie. He was one of the great scholars of Iraq. And he was a phenomenal scholar. He was a poet, an author, an orator, a writer and a historian, an

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

excess of the Quran, Professor Muhammad did everything he there was no discipline that he was not any man. He so he used to have special students who would give special classes to and they would sit near the shore of the Euphrates River in an era and one day as they're sitting on the side of the shore of the other bank on the other bank of the river. There were a group of young people, young men who were doing sinful things acting in a way that wasn't really moral in a way that wasn't really right. And his students, righteous students, students of knowledge with the great Imam of Josie, they said Allah Allah him

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

Combat Allahu alayhi wa Joe May these faces be disgraced made against some chef, you know, make dua against them. So the chef

00:45:10--> 00:45:15

and Imam Imam Josie, he made this beautiful to add that I never forget. He said,

00:45:16--> 00:45:21

Allah Houma, Kemah Assad, tell them for dunya zoom for

00:45:22--> 00:46:04

over Allah as you made them happy, even though it's in this simple way, the source of this is that Allah subhanaw taala gave them this opportunity that they are happy in this moment. zimtu Hamza, as I don't fit dunya make their sad that in the future or greater, make them more happy that I feel meaning Oh Allah, allow them to repent to you allow them to come back to you allow them to heal themselves from these mistakes, or Allah allow them to see that the momentary happiness they have now is not the happiness that is going to be lasting for them. What a beautiful drive. What do I do that is full of mercy and compassion, do I that shows you how the scholars saw other people that the

00:46:04--> 00:46:46

more you become learned about Allah, the more compassionate and Haleem you become, and that's why Ibrahim Ali is set up. When the angels came and said in that we are here to destroy the people of loot. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah, those who have committed the most vile of sins we have come. We were ordered by Allah to bring the bottom of the city on top to just collapse it on each other to destroy everyone in it. New Ibrahim it is Salah. He says allow me an opportunity to go call them give them a little bit more time. He continues to advocate on their behalf. Subhan Allah Ibrahim Alia Salam is the one who says

00:46:47--> 00:47:25

the one who doesn't obey me to INEC and uphold Rahim, those who I came to with the message and they rejected Oh Allah you remain the most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. He doesn't say oh Allah destroy them. Allah show them your wrath. Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the love of the prophets and the knowledgeable of Allah. Allah at him, Salawat Allah, Allah, but having so make dua for yourself and others and make dua for yourself and others good. The prophets of Allah Allah, you were sending them he would say, La tento unphysical when I'm one of the cool when I

00:47:27--> 00:48:05

when I read the article, in different rewire, I don't mean to I against yourself or against your children or against your wealth or against your home or against your wife or against your spouse, elaborate higher except with good to see Boone Assata Java, attend the moon, perhaps you may make this dua in your you know, do I have something negative for somebody and it will be entered because you were in a time of being entered by Allah. And then you will be regretful sometimes we're not careful and are dry. You know, sometimes you might be sowing I say, Get out of my face. I never want to see you again. And actually that's a type of drop. Right? You might have been Sierra demo you

00:48:05--> 00:48:17

were so upset with your son. I never want to see you again get out on my face. That becomes something that can be answerable by Allah be careful with those Insha Allah we have a caller on the line Salam Alaikum caller

00:48:24--> 00:48:28

it's good to hear from you, my brother does like a lot for calling us regularly.

00:48:37--> 00:48:38

selfish person?

00:48:40--> 00:49:12

How can I become a person that likes to share with others? Allah He basically just like Allah said, what a beautiful way to end our session today. Wonderful, wonderful question. The question once again, if I'm a selfish person, what are ways what are strategies that I could use to become more generous? So the first of them is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to make the DUA against being an ungenerous or a selfish person. Yes, the prophets I seldom would say, Allah in the cabinet

00:49:13--> 00:49:56

was short. All I asked you to protect me from being stingy and willing to share with others, right? Allah warned us in the hole and that there is this concept called a short word. Don't tell me, you know, when a person's soul becomes so greedy, that it becomes coveting in stinginess sure, is one of those social illnesses, where it's not just the person isn't generous in sharing with others who are in need, but they see that others in need are unworthy even of their attention. So it's not just that they're not going to give, but I'm not gonna give and I don't even want to know about your condition. May Allah protect us from this? So the first is to make dua to Allah Manero that we go in

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

there. Both will fuck do it.

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

You know, Allah protect us from poverty. In the same job the prophet would say, Oh Allah asked you to protect to protect me from being stingy, which is a such a way of us knowing that when we are generous upon others, Allah is generous upon us. Second thing and finally, is to know the great reward of being. Beyond looking beyond ourselves. May Allah open our hearts to others, send light into our homes, protect us all in this life in this dunya and akhira. Allah subhanho wa Taala assists you all in good your brother your hybrid he was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
