00:02:16--> 00:03:00

answer them for the betterment not just of yourselves hopefully for an answer that can benefit others. I will continue with our discussion that we began at the beginning of the month, we begin the month of December speaking about drop speaking about our relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. And we said that dua is the essence of all aspects of worship, and everything that we do in our relationship with Allah subhana, Allah to add, is built on this very important concept of bringing ourselves to understanding the weakness that we possess and the might and power of Allah, the need that we have and the givingness of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that Allah Allahu Akbar,

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

Allah truly is greater than all things greater than the problems we face greater than what we have experienced in the past, greater than what we will see and pray that we are sheltered from in the future, and greater than also the accomplishments and successes that we have. That may lead us to self worship or deifying. Other things other than him, Allah is always the greater in every aspect of our life, and such as the reminder as we begin our prayer, the call to our prayer. In fact, the thing that we call out to our children as soon as they are born into the world, they have not yet left the delivery room, and it's our responsibility to whisper into their right ear. Then Allahu

00:03:49--> 00:04:36

Akbar, Allahu Akbar, hoping that these are the first words that they will hear and will resonate with them the rest of their life. We want to analyze the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and study the ways the prophets I seldom used to communicate his needs and His Praise to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now for those of you with me for the last two weeks, you will remember that we said your eyes, two parts, the most important aspect of there is the drop of fnf of praising a lot glorifying Allah, uplifting our worship of Allah. And that comes with the TMG of Allah, you know, extolling virtue and honor and praise upon Allah subhana wa Tada and that is best done through

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

the remembrance given to us by Allah and taught to us by the prophets, I send them the how you might call a Nebby. You'd call the NASA whenever you in the best statement that any man has ever said any woman has ever said. Any prophet or messenger has ever said, is la isla de la. Best word it is the key that unlocks the gateways to genuine

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

and therefore this is a decree that we may as a part and parcel of our drop out that we're leaning towards Allah subhana wa tyna. We understand in our relationship with Allah, that the more we invoke Allah the more we celebrate the love, the more we praise a lot, the more Allah get a gathers for us His love and His attention SubhanaHu Medina and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who is man, always merciful with his creation. But he is Rahim especially merciful, increasing in his mercy increasing in his love increasing in his compassion, to who, to those who have distinguished themselves in their relationship with Him. In fact, to those who ask Him for their needs, and

00:05:48--> 00:06:39

explain to Allah subhana wa Tada their concerns, and that a second part of our draft, which we should never ignore the prophets I said, he said, Man, lamb, yes, le la Yahuwah Valley, the one who is consistent in being distracted from asking Allah for their needs from raising their hands in support and in need of Allah, the One who doesn't ask Allah for what they have and what they want in the dunya. It is a sign of Allah's wrath and anger has set and is setting upon them. Because the heart that is distracted from seeking from Allah is the heart that is occupied by seeking from other than Allah, and no one will turn to anything or anyone in petition and request any devotion except

00:06:39--> 00:07:23

the one who has been led away from the true path, the path of Allah, the path that was sent to our Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it becomes important to learn from the prophets and you know the prophets of Allah. Allah Himself Allah to Allah upon them be the peace and blessings of Allah, all of them and make us from them, who have given are given this peace from Allah azza wa jal, they were those whose do I was recorded for us in part in the Quran. So we know the drive will be Brahim for his parents and for his children and for himself or I'll be joining the multi masala when we go to the Yeti or opener with a couple to Allah grant me constancy consistency in my

00:07:23--> 00:08:16

prayers, oh my lord and that for my children and those who come from them in progeny, Oh Allah, except this dua this invocation or a banner Oh ALLAH on all of our behalf except this Dr. Ravi JAL Robbie Finley when he well they, Oh Allah grant forgiveness expiate the sins of myself and my parents. What do you mean and to the believers yo man former ASAP on the day that you bring us to account of Allah. This draft of the Prophet Ibrahim is recorded in sort of the Brahim many of the drafts of the profits are recorded for us as sacred formulas as dA that we take as a lesson to make as I do our equal for ourselves and to learn how to petition and to request and to ask Allah for his

00:08:16--> 00:09:06

blessing was an ALA min floodlit Allah commanded Nepal and be consistent in asking Allah to grant you His grace and His blessing and his virtue into your lives. May Allah make us consistent in that regard. Allahumma Amin so becomes important to analyze the way the prophets may drop, but most importantly, the way our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may drop. And it's important to kind of note that there are certain things that we should do to make our do more, more acceptable. And there are certain things we should not do things that we should be distant from things that we should protect our homes and our families, our psychology, our inner being our intentions, from

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

having certain things. Both of them become important the things we do and the things we need to eliminate from our life. So that our do is ascended and accepted by Allah. Keeping knowledge yo federal. Well Amma Lu Salehi, as scientifically unfurled, Allah tells us that it's righteous deeds that bring forward

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

you know, allow our petitions and requests to ascend into the heavens to be heard and answered, why Allah subhana wa Tada. Let us begin inshallah we begin this list last week, we spoke about being very careful with our food, our clothing and our earnings that we earn them from sources that are Khaled, because if you are earning eating, dressing, and your lifestyle would the EBIT, Haram is nurtured from haram as is it the Hadith of the Prophet, I sell them

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

In this whole Hey, how will you my Muslim and autonomy that we studied, if you are built on a foundation of corruption annatto Levy, then Hellfire is more worthy of it. And therefore nothing is more important than the morsel of food you put in your mouth, the attire that you govern yourself with and the the earnings and the system of

00:10:24--> 00:11:12

henchmen for your life that you seek to build. It'll have that Sagami me was one of the uncles of the prophets, Elijah left, he was there he was in trouble and enter by Allah quickly. And when he was asked what makes you you know, his regard Why do you feel your heart is so quick to be answered? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, we know he was close to Sagittarii will cause he gave him news that he would be one of the people of gender. And the PA and Saudi pa we will call said from the moment I became Muslim, I was very cautious what I ingested in myself that I knew that it was Helen earned in Milan, and taken from a Hillel source. Nobody was injured for it, no

00:11:12--> 00:11:59

injustice has occurred for me to have it, and that I knew that I had worked for it profit that would it is set up one of the special realities of profit that would that our WSI salad tells us is that he never ate a meal that he did not earn with his own hard work. He never took a meal, ate any food, except that he had worked for it an honest day's work. So you've had a lot it makes you answered. Number two, that when we make dry that we have a level of sincerity and if loss means you give up hoping to everything other than Allah, knowing that it is only Allah, who affects power in the world, by putting people in your life who can bring the changes that you see can making us dream

00:11:59--> 00:12:41

makers for others, right? We all want to be the answer of the doer of others. Imagine the beauty of that, my dear sister, my dear brother, that when a person has made their dua to Allah, that the answer that Allah gives them is you. Allahu Akbar, is me. And that's the power of charity, you know, subhanAllah people ask, Why do you enjoy, you know, working for charity and you know, doing these kinds of things? Well, it earns you the Doohan of others people you've never seen people you've never met, and they're do they're like, Oh Allah, I'm in pain. Oh, Allah sent me help. Oh Allah assist me. Oh ALLAH forgive me. Oh Allah I'm in need. Oh Allah. Oh Allah, Oh Allah. And Allah

00:12:41--> 00:12:54

Subhana Allah to Atlanta chooses Yahia Ibrahim chooses you know, modern Brahim chooses somebody and says, You are the answer to their you are the answer to their needs.

00:12:55--> 00:13:44

My dear brother, may Allah Subhana Allah Minkus, the Dream Makers for others, Allah Allah. That third point that we will continue with in chatbot we should always try to combine good deeds with the drug that we make. And the more good you do in combination with other good, the more good you are invited towards by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and the more energy you are given by Allah in your soul, to continue doing the good things that are in the support of others, we pray that Allah Subhana Allah continues to bless us and support us and to assist us so that we can continue helping each other in that which is pleasing to Him. Allahumma Amin, one of the things that is forgotten

00:13:44--> 00:14:30

sooner or forgotten son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that when people make dua, it is as soon as to make wudu before it and this is collected by all the six books of Hadith the six major books of Hadith. So Mojari and Muslim and autonomy, the Buddha would and Assa T. And imagine all of the six books carry the statements of the prophets I send them that when you know somebody has a big need, he would say to them as to be able to make a good model. And then he might say pray to raka for salatu Hajah or to raka for Salah to Toba or to raka persona to this the hara but the essence the beginning of that begins where with making and refreshing and you will do even if you

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

are in a state of will do that's a powerful mindset that you and I should have. We underestimate the power of will do by the way we're the term will do isn't found in the Quran. Allah says to us in sort of the mat, for example, yeah, your head levena M and either put them to Illa Sala, when you will have stood and coming to establish the prayer fallacy rule. The word used is wash. Don't see the word you will have gone. What idea coming

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

Morocco 51% will be or will be rosy como la jolla, Camilo Cabaye what Allah doesn't say is fatawa make will do. The word will do is a powerful word in the Arabic language. It comes from different routes but you know one of the images of the concept of will do it comes from both meaning light and illumination. So we'll do have the effect of right a brilliant light for you in this life. Because it is an unseen light for you in the dunya but it is a seen light for you in the astral it's as if you are bathing yourself with the light of protection. When you make dry Allah majali Nora, Allah cover me with your life. One of the effects of that is make me regular in prayer make me regular and

00:15:45--> 00:16:35

will do and the Prophet said on the Day of Judgment, I will recognize you by your unique markings or run magenta What is this unique marking? He said ethylone will do the traces of where you will do you know your face will be lit up with radiant light, your arms, your hair, your legs, your feet, and you will shine in the darkness that surrounds many others. Allahumma Atomium Lennar dourada Oh ALLAH complete for us our life. So making will do before you sit and stand to make dua is a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam number four face the Qibla what is collected in the six books of Hadith to turn your body towards the Qibla in making your diet we have a first caller on

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

the line, mashallah

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

s&m Anakin caller How can I help and chatbot

00:16:42--> 00:16:57

welcome Salam wa barakatu. Paki. You're talking about the thought of a question. Yes, my bad for many years, for many years now that maybe been over a year and a half, they make it worthwhile loss of autonomy for something worldly.

00:16:58--> 00:17:25

And it's not happening. So, because of you talking about this, I wanted to just explain this to me the world could be the reason what is it? Is it my sins? Is there any am I lacking of something because everything that you have mentioned, and everything is muddled up, just just tie, you know, after the past, after they are done by the Friday, everything for even even went went to the home to the house of

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

Aqaba doing vlogs doing stuff by Malwa. And, you know, I mean 100 I mean, a year and a half. But this was demanded that I'm asking Allah to Allah to coordinate, you know, like, I'm not achieving it was Could you please explain this to me?

00:17:43--> 00:18:24

That's a beautiful question. My brother, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant you the answer of your DUA in the way you want. If it is good for you in this dunya and after, and may Allah subhanaw taala turn you away from it and turn it away from you. If it is not good for your dunya and akhira. And give you contentment in the heart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep you consistent in this dua of your need. Until you see its fruition Allahumma Amin it's a powerful question. And it's something all of us relate to. We're all in it together my brother. So there are three things that I want to say to kind of open your heart. The first of them is to maybe look and see if your do has been

00:18:24--> 00:19:02

answered in a way better than what you've been asking. So for example, you know, I've had brothers who will say sure, yeah, you know, I want to marry this particular sister. I've been making do I did my sister Hara, my mother's making sure we're all happy Subhanallah chef, she went, and she received an invitation. And you know, somebody else asked for her hand before I did. Subhanallah they're getting married, My God, My God, Chef. And I say to him, perhaps your job will be answered. He says how chef, she's getting that you want me to marry after she's divorced? What should I do to wait? I said, No. Perhaps you're looking wrong at the end of the day. So why did you want to marry this

00:19:02--> 00:19:45

sister brother? He said Subhan Allah chef, she observes righteousness. She's a person who I believe would be a good mother, mashallah, she has a level of sophistication and education. But at the same time, she is nurturing and knows that, you know, the home is something we will build together. She would be honoring to my family. She comes from a background of service and commitment to others. I said Subhanallah so this is what you want? He said, Yes, I said, But you made it in your mind that it's only in the shape of this particular person. Well, how do you know my dear brother, that's exactly what you're asking for. That dua is still coming. You're asking for it by the name of an

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

individual, not by the qualities that you are seeking. So perhaps you've turned yourself away from entering the dot, the dot can be entered in the shape of another way. And second thing that I will say to you

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

My dear brother as we ending with this first segment to taking a quick break is do not give up as long as what you are asking for is of righteousness and then commit working towards it. May Allah open the roadways to you and may Allah turn you away from it if it is not right. What somebody Lahoma will tell you as it were Baddeck LSAT alesina Mohammed see you again in a few minutes in sha Allah one see a

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

lot of muscle yeah man me

00:20:49--> 00:20:57

I'll be I'll be back in a few minutes, my dear brothers who are watching online and chat. I'm just going to dim the screen for a second. I'll be back shortly.

00:25:40--> 00:25:51

Yeah 960

00:25:52--> 00:26:32

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back and hamdulillah for part two of our discussion, mashallah, while your calls are coming in and we are expecting more callers in chat log do come through the because I know it can be a little bit tedious. We look forward to hearing from you live with your questions. Inshallah, we ended off receiving a question from one of our brothers who was saying he's been making dua for an extended period of time, well, over a year and a half, he's even gone and visited or Murrah and has done, what he believes is ways for him to have his answer. And he's wondering what are more what are some of the things that can add greater value and

00:26:32--> 00:27:18

increase is Dryden We began by saying, speaking, you know, all of us together in this discussion and won our hearts to kind of connect, the dots can be entered in the way we want, but not in the package that we are looking at. And perhaps you're asking, you know, for certain criteria for the thing that you want, because of these criteria, and it may arrive to you, but in a different packaging, and that's one of the ways can be answered. Number two, sometimes a lot answers the dua for us by putting bottlecap blessing in something that already exists in our life, that maybe we've underestimated its value, by adding greater value in that for us, while not giving us something to

00:27:18--> 00:28:01

replace it or something new. And sometimes, you know, we're making dua, that Allah Subhana Allah cures us from a particular illness, you know, my shoulder, and I doesn't intend And subhanAllah your other shoulder was actually on the way out as well. It was something that was not going to maintain its current form, but because of your DUA, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah bless that other part of you, that was also on the way out so that you weren't dealing with two things, so that the healing that you wanted for this side, actually came into this side, which was better for you in the knowledge and wisdom in the end, the fourth side of Allah subhanaw taala that you and I are not privy to. And that

00:28:01--> 00:28:06

is a better outcome for our third thing that I would say is to trust Allah

00:28:07--> 00:28:49

Subhana Allah, the prophets I send them says to us, that Allah is more merciful with you and I, then we would be merciful with ourselves if we knew the outcomes that existed. So if you were to design the best life you could ever give to yourself, it would be the life you're living today, if you knew what Allah knows, even though you might look at your life today and wonder, Where is the Mercy of Allah? When will it descend upon me? And subhanAllah if anyone could have said that, it would have been those who lived with the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam who were, you know, making their struggle with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam under very different circumstances. May Allah

00:28:49--> 00:29:01

give peace and ease to your heart my brother stay consistent with your DUA May Allah allow it to manifest in hyena for you or deter it from you along with me We have another caller on the line so I won't even call it

00:29:03--> 00:29:04

body Mr.

00:29:05--> 00:29:13

Robot controller we are here from New York we're calling to masala we always happy to see you on the screen and most of

00:29:16--> 00:29:34

us and you know we like from you all the time brother, Allah He Vedic, Allah under and our father angiographic May Allah Subhana Allah join us in this life in good and allow us to be together in sha Allah and the best of places and the best of times. May we stand on the mountain of alpha together one day Allah me.

00:29:36--> 00:29:50

Michelle, brother the show today I have two questions for him. The first question his brother is about looking at divorce as a tool of resolving problems in terms of as indicated in you know, in our human beings.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

We don't understand what the political allottee within them, you know, it's not like it's not like the particular example is that if somebody you know, make the horses

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

wasn't the time of the month, and then we know that they will have that be the worst is why they know. And then the purpose of it was, he married our our, our mother data, but the Aloha mobile. So brother, I want you to explain to us also that that, that divorce doesn't mean that the husband is a bad husband or the wife is a bad wife sometimes doesn't work out because, you know, because because each one has different, you know, use or depending, again, Allah and Medina, or against, you know, the other person, this is the first question. And the second is, if we look at it as a tool to solve problems in sha Allah, that's the first question. The second question brother is about, you know,

00:30:44--> 00:31:08

like, a Silicon Valley was associated with Allah subhanaw taala with you know, when when you do see examples, like sometimes you submit to Allah subhanaw taala is everything by fun, but when it comes to your life, actual life, you know, you something, you you refuse to listen, I mean, to do whatever Allah wants from you, or your go against what he says, you know, so I want to know what the punishment

00:31:09--> 00:31:16

because we are in, you know, most of us we are in this thing, which is the sheer calamity. So I've had to go out with all over the

00:31:17--> 00:31:58

Wi Fi comm just like Milan now, you know, just that, you know, the topic of divorce is a topic that we'll probably try to cover over a few episodes, Inshallah, in the coming months, but you've neglected to Anna, and divorce is, as you mentioned, I like the word that you mentioned tool, it's something that at times becomes a necessity, there are certain tools that are put away that you only use them when there is a need when there is an emergency. And if you don't have that tool, if you don't have the ability to fix the bigger problem, than it becomes an even greater problem. And of course, tools are meant to be used by those who know how to handle them and carry them. And

00:31:58--> 00:32:41

therefore, you know, a great deal of advice and shower is meant to be taken before a person becomes inflamed with just a moment of anger, and just uses that capital T word. You know, to loft is not an easy word for us as Muslims, and it's one of the most objectionable things that are permissible for us as Muslims. So it's something that is permissible, but it's not something that is light and easy. And it's not meant to be something that's like a revolving door, I got married, I didn't like the person, okay, I'm gonna find somebody else. We're going to just move along with our life. It's meant to be a commitment in that effort to move on Debbie Kelly Mattila, you've taken that spouse, that

00:32:41--> 00:33:28

husband, that wife with you, in a promise that you made to Allah, I like it that that was supernatural, sue the law to follow the order or the ordinances of Allah and the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but when breakdowns occur, but at the end I, there is no shame, there is no dishonor for a person who does what is halal. In the same way that there is no dishonor in doing the halaal of marriage. There is also no dishonor for an individual and their family in doing the halaal of having an MD of a couple separation for him Sercombe, my elder 300 BSN. Those are the instructions given to us by Allah hold on to each other in that which is

00:33:28--> 00:34:16

equitable and good and you recognize the good of each other, or separate and disband from each other, with exam with an increasing level of excellence in your treatment of one another. No, of course, there are a lot of emotions that need to be managed. Sometimes there are mental health issues that are at play. Sometimes it's cultural ramifications. And sometimes it's the evil of the shayateen. And that uncleanliness of one spiritual state that pushes righteous souls away from them, all of those are factors and others that can lead to divorce, what I will always say when it comes to that, you know, the word POLOP it becomes very important for us to make the decision that we

00:34:16--> 00:35:00

would make according to the Sunnah of the prophets, I said, we are forbidden, it is haram for a person to divorce their wife in the same period of time, that they have been intimate together in that same time, the time period during that month, in fact, for the divorce to have a good effect and for it to be a righteous divorce, that if you were to be intimate in that month, and something happened a week later to that you know, and you're like, that's it I want to divorce you are actually forbidden, it is haram to give the divorce until your wife has a her menstrual cycle, finds purity from it. And then if you want to make that decision, then you

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

had that time to think about it. That's just one of the rules that many people Subhanallah forget. Just like there are rules for getting married. There are also rules for getting divorced. And because we are lacking an acquaintance of the details of our deen, and we're shutting up. And sometimes these are topics that aren't spoken of, and the days of Joomla, and so on, they do require more detail, and becomes important to take time with those capital decisions in our life. The second question you had, my dear brother was about shift in action and shift in how we view the world. All of us are believers, all of us in our heart is a statement of law in the law, hamburger Rasulullah.

00:35:42--> 00:36:26

There are two levels of sharing. There's the major shift, which is disbelief in a lot, and included in that major shift, which is hypocrisy, where a person has no faith in a law. And at the same time, they may claim to be believers, but in their heart, it's empty of faith in Allah, it's only ridicule, rancor and hate towards God. But then there's the minor ship, which is to, to know and to believe in Allah subhanho wa taala, but to do the actions of those who do not believe in Allah, and that has a level where in each and every instance, it is meant to have a moment of us returning to Allah and repenting. And I leave you with this hadith of the prophet Isaiah lived in Africa from a

00:36:26--> 00:37:09

heart for many of the things I fear most from my own mouth. I share coffee, the hidden capacity to disconnect from Allah with a minor ship. They said, Well, Michelle will have a year of solar What is this subtle, silent hidden ship? He said any a former module is that a person may stand up for you suddenly and as they stand in their prayer, this man stands in their prayer for us Zeno salata who Lima Europe and not remotely lay that they beautify their prayer because they see somebody watching them or praying with them. You know, if we pray alone at home, Allah will go up and down to earth and it's quick follow along and finish. Somebody visits our house for that one night once Allah all

00:37:09--> 00:37:35

of a sudden shifts so they smash Allah shows up le flan meme and it's a different story. That is something we should be very careful with. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah purify our heart, make a sincere to him, Allah whom I mean, we have a caller on the line in Santa Monica. Um caller How can I help my brother or sister? I said I wanted to offer live Erica to shift y equals Sadam or to lie about accountability here you're

00:37:37--> 00:38:32

taking my my question is in the form of question as well as seeking advice, to use it for it for an older person. He, he has everything in his life around him and he does to our core or people around him. But he finds that he is he feels that he is dua is not being heavy impacted like I'll give you an example he he prays for his grandchildren, he can cheat and turn out to be autistic. He prays for his children to be pious now they're not given praise by his daughters or not even doing a job. So this sort of thing backs off of thing have an impact on him he's feeling that he is not maybe doing things right. So advice for him that how he's doing for other people he himself by now then because

00:38:32--> 00:38:58

of you know maybe because it's related to your age, that is finding the two most of the day chores for his his his life okay, but when he's complaining about the like to enjoy our time, and things like this is finding extremely difficult for him to do. So in this situation what he needs to do to improve himself and improve that made the why he is waiting for maybe

00:39:00--> 00:39:01

he could see somebody down

00:39:02--> 00:39:05

so he can feel that is do I pay

00:39:07--> 00:39:07

money for my

00:39:09--> 00:39:54

tattoo? May Allah Subhana Allah send His light into the hearts of all of us into the hearts of these people who we have mentioned incidentally, may Allah Subhana Allah lead them to a better practice of their Deen May Allah Subhana Allah protect their lineage and their offspring from stream further away. May Allah subhana wa Tada enter all of our dua in seeking good for each other a lot, Mommy, I'm going to answer this question by sharing with you a dua of one of the righteous people. There was one of the great Imams of the people of Islam. His name is an imam YBNL, Josie and Imam of New Jersey. He was one of the skilled teachers in Baghdad. He was a poet and a writer at Pepsi scholar,

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

a hadith scholar and orator everything and he used to have special students

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

righteous students, you know the best of the best, who would have special classes with him and they would sit a little bit near the river, the Tigris and as he sitting there one day, across on the other side, there was a group of young people similar age to his students who were committing sins, there was mixing with, you know, people of, you know, doing haram things, and they could see them from across the river. And the young students who are with him. They said, Oh de la, make dua against them. You know, look at these people. They've gone so far to this audacity to be in public to do these lewd act, make dua against them. So an imam in New Jersey, he raised his hands and he

00:40:43--> 00:41:14

made to Allah. He said, Allah Houma. Kemah aside, doesn't fit dunya present him follow him Phil Acura. He said, Oh Allah as you've given these people happiness in what they are enjoying themselves at the moment, they're enjoying themselves and are apt, oh Allah as you've given them joy in life, give them a greater joy in the afterlife, which means that the DUA that is asking, he's asking for Allah to give them Hidayat to give them repentance before the return to Allah

00:41:15--> 00:42:04

dua is not meant to be something that we use with Allah as a tool, where we assume that Allah Subhana Allah is there to enter our every single drop in the way we ask, in the way that we see. In fact we see in the Quran is we're asking for something but Allah may give us better in other ways. And I want to say to this dear uncle, may Allah subhana, Allah to Allah, give him coolness of heart and allow him to understand that there were better people who had faithful throughout to Allah, who were not able to save their children on account of them being righteous and making your app for their children. And Allah tells us in the Quran, of numerous stories of children making the app for

00:42:04--> 00:42:48

their parents and their parents were not survived, our parents making dua for their children and their children did not conform. What we need to do is to do two things in Chapa, trust Allah subhana, WA Tada, continue to make dua, and then to do the things that make affecting the light. So it might be that we invite our children to attend a talk that we continue to counsel them, that we assist them with, you know, financial gain and financial services, to turn them away from some of the Haram things that they might do these kind of things in a way that can assist them to doing bigger and better things in sha Allah into the future. And I pray that Allah subhana, Allah can open

00:42:48--> 00:43:27

the doors of righteousness Allahumma Amin will continue, we'll continue with our discussion of getting our two acts entered by Allah some kind of metallic. So he said, Make will do add good deeds, face not in black, which is found in all the six books of Hadith. And then to sit in the position of Tashahhud. To sit in humility, as if you are waiting to be attended, and to attend to the need that you have with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, this is a symbol of the prophet Isaiah live to sit in the position where we make our two schaffen. And to make your app before Allah in that position. Another important soon that we learned from the privatize LM to gain our drop, being

00:43:27--> 00:44:07

in trouble by Allah is to praise Allah in the beginning before of our requests, and at the end of the DUA. And that's what sometimes people forget, people begin by saying that hamdulillah Europian, either mean, and we begin by praising Allah, but we forget to end by that. So I want you to sandwich your app, almost as if you're making a sandwich or a hamburger, you have the bread on the top and the bread at the bottom. That is your praise of Allah that is, you know, that's what defines the sandwich. Otherwise, it's just a piece of meat. If you didn't have the bread on the top, on the bottom, it's not a hamburger, it's not a sandwich, you need both for it to be complete. What comes

00:44:07--> 00:44:48

in the middle, of course, is your request. It's the meat of the issue. It's important for you, these are things you need. But the thing that defines what it is that you're doing is your praise of Allah in the beginning, and do not forget to praise and show thankfulness to Allah at the end for a considerable amount of time that's collected by all of the six books of Hadith. Another important aspect is to make dua for the Prophet Mohammed mental I send them with the dua that you make yourself because you do after the prophets I send them your Durood and your Salawat apostles I send them will be accepted in Allah. Whoa, man, you gotta respond to an honoree. Yeah, you Alladhina

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

amanu Sallu Allah Allah masa, Deanna Hamad, while adding Mohammed can also late Allah Rahim, Brahim Aloma Vaticana Mohammed Ali Mohammed Kemer Barak dalla Ibrahim wiener

00:45:00--> 00:45:27

Philomena, coming to magic be consistent in your solar upon the Prophet I sell them either when you are making to add for us I sell them and you make your Durotan Salawat coffee to hammock, your worry will be will be taken away from you and your risk will be increased and your body will be strengthened and your name and reputation will be made protected by Allah subhanaw taala and many other wonderous things.

00:45:28--> 00:46:14

Another important aspect is to spread your hands out before Allah the way a beggar asks and to raise your hands up into to make your request from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to petition Allah azza wa jal as if one who is waiting for kindness of Allah to descend upon it, that you are also uplifting your dua to Allah you're speaking into it and asking Allah to enter it, that you are one who is dependent upon Allah in that regard. You are like a slave in front of the master who's giving the orders and giving the instructions you are like the one about to be sentenced by the judge as you stand before Allah in humility Subhana wa Tada. Another important tradition and student of the

00:46:14--> 00:47:01

prophets I send them is to mention your helplessness and your dependence upon Allah and people forget this they may God just by requesting Oh Allah give me all give me but they didn't grovel and make their need to Allah known. Listen to Prophet Yahoo. He says in NEMA, a school bus bethey was needed Allah. I only raised my complaint of sorrow and sadness, of weakness to Allah. No, hallelujah Salam, he says all of chimney, oh my lord, I am meek. Funkhouser, you be my support and Grand Prix victory. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant you and I and accepted to make us from those who are blessed in this dunya and after assist us with hi and I hope to see you again. I'm going to help

00:47:01--> 00:47:07

next year next week in sha Allah was said Mr. Omarama Allah wa barakato Sierra
