hamdulillah al Amin Salallahu Salam Bara kind of you know Muhammad and while earlier was salam to Sleeman Kathira mama bad welcome you back to the seal classes, which we discuss right now the book of Imam Abu pada Mara mo Lautaro Mata Salman Hajj al Cassadine. Last week we were talking about the inner secrets of Salah what makes her so unique How can you benefit from those Salah to the maximum we spoke about one of the most valuable things about salah if you want to focus on this benefit from the salah what is that quality that you need to acquire

00:00:31--> 00:00:32

is not connected

00:00:45--> 00:01:22

Okay, so what is that quality that we're talking about? If you acquired in your Salah, then you have the maximum benefit from it. What is that thing? What do we call it? Sure, right, who should concentration focus on your Salah and remember this is the most important thing about your Salah most of us when it comes to the Salah, what do we what do we care about the the aspect of Salah such as Archon and shoot like Megan will do wedding properly for it facing the fibula doing the salon in the best you know format, making the right car and Salah that's what we focus on in order for Salah to be accepted. There's no right there's no doubt about it. But it's not just about accepting the

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

salon. It's about was it meaningful?

00:01:25--> 00:01:52

Was it truly meaningful? Did I connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala so that's what I mean by having the Salah the has a secret and inshallah tonight the Palazzo del Imam Ibn Kodama Rahim Allah has elaborating right now on the various aspects of your rabada and Salah particularly how can you have that Salah fully consulted on as well as a very meaningful event and connection with Allah subhanho wa taala. So we didn't even show our data from the page 45 Now

00:01:53--> 00:02:34

Bismillah he was so that was Saddam Wilder Sula, the author says, There are many things that bring life to the prayer, among them the following presence of heart, as we have mentioned, which means reading the heart of everything that is not related to the act of worship at hand. What leads to this is concerned for when you are concerned about matter, your heart will be automatically present. Therefore, the only way to create presence of heart is to direct one's concern towards the prayer. The strength and weakness of this concern depends on the strength of one's faith in the afterlife and in the pointlessness of this world. So if you notice that your heart is not present in the

00:02:34--> 00:03:11

prayer, know that it is because your faith is weak, you must work hard to strengthen it. So what he says are him all over here that the number one thing if you would like to benefit from your Salah, and the inner secret of that Salah Istanbul or Woodward by the presence of the heart. We covered that a little bit briefly last week if you guys remember, the presence of the heart meaning when you're making your Salah, you're you're you're not distracted, that you're wholeheartedly focusing on this Avada you bring in your mind, your heart, your actions, everything to focus on the salah. He says Rahim Allah overheard that listen, it means that you need to completely vacate your heart from

00:03:11--> 00:03:45

anything to make it completely empty, free of anything that might be distracted from focusing on Allah subhanho wa Taala says how do you do that called Saba, Buddha, allocation, Arabic, whatever, whatever you call him. He is the most important thing is the concern. What does that mean? If you are concerned about something what happens? You always think about it. It's always present in your heart and your mind all the time. And if you're concerned about Allah subhanaw taala accepting the Salah from you, what are you going to do? You're going to always think about this that comes to your mind. If you're always concerned about making Salah perfectly, and that is meaningful, that is going

00:03:45--> 00:04:18

to actually provide you with Allah promise that is going to give you the sense the sense of strength in your life and so on, then you will always think about that. But if you're only concerned about just fulfilling the obligation, like the whole check after check, metric check, then that's the that's the maximum your heart is going to be focusing on. That I just did my part. So it doesn't even matter what you recited anymore. As long as you think that you you did you recite it and that's why I'm fortunate sometimes we start our Salah by saying Allahu Akbar, and the only thing we remember after that is what I said I'm Oracle amatola Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. What happens in

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

between Allahu Dona Ana.

00:04:22--> 00:04:27

You are someone who comes back to the masjid how was it they say was beautiful. What was it about was about 20 minutes

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

before the Imam recite How did it feel? Absolutely nothing, unfortunately. So he says if you would like if you'd like to have your heart present while you're making your Salah, concern yourself with your Salah. Make it a true concern. Is that going to be a good one with Allah accept this from me? Am I going to be registered 100 Among the harsher in those who focus on concentrate, that should be a concern, because whatever concerns your heart is actually is going to bring it's going to come there during the webinar, but if you're concerned about work after finish this quickly so I can finish my homework or whatever that you do.

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

In obviously your heart is not going to be present for the Salah is going to only be temporary, temporary just center cannot be present only focusing on Okay, what's next? What's coming next kind of think about what you're going to be doing next after that Salah Cara Rahim Allah Allah

00:05:14--> 00:05:52

Farah Elijah dari Illa sir pullin Mattila, so there is no solution there's no remedy for this. But you try to bring that concern into your life into your into your Salah, and then he says called once referred to him jaquar Word of behalf of your coworker Lima. How can you make sure that your heart is present? He said this depends right now on the strength and the weakness of your iman the stronger the Eman the easier it is for you to bring your heart into the salon. The weaker the Eman obviously, you know the harder it will be to bring your heart into the salon and gauge yourself. Gauge yourself. Remember Ramadan How easy was it for you to bring your heart into the salon?

00:05:53--> 00:06:24

How easy was it there was a time when you throw away or sometimes the arm which is actually a longer Salah even and it's performed at 3am when everybody else is sleeping you're awake you will come to the masjid and you pray and guess what you enjoy it at 3am Why is that because of Ramadan as the Emancipation arises you have concerns for the ACA for Ramadan for the acceptance for the Riba becomes at the highest level and every single night the Ramadan So towards the end of Ramadan particularly you always say you're up keep Ramadan going.

00:06:25--> 00:07:04

I wish the Ramadan could go on why because the feeling of it is so great. So he says over here, look at this, your heart, your heart is going to be connected based on the strength of your Eman or the weakness of that image. So if your Eman is strong, your heart will present. If your image is not strong, your heart is not going to be present also heal yourself whakaaro dunya how much you value the dunya if you put so much value in this dunya in your life, your heart is going to be concerned with it more than concerned with the Accra so when you make your Salah obviously your heart is going to be focused on the dunya more than focusing on the Afra he said then Mata Murata Caldwell callback

00:07:04--> 00:07:40

Elia Dora salah of a Salah if you start feeling that your heart is not there when you make your Salah if you feel your heart is not present, then Salah. So that's an indication that your Eman is not where it's supposed to be. Make sure to work on it. And we've talked about how to open your Eman prior to this discussion. And I hope Allah subhanaw taala center our Immanuel Brahmin and make us among those who will always have for sure and everybody else. So that's the first way to bring life to Salah the second point, understanding what is being said, this is something more than just presence of heart for me happened in one's heart this person put the words but not their meaning.

00:07:41--> 00:07:53

Therefore, one must focus his mind on understanding what has been said by repelling destructive thoughts and also eliminating their causes. For if the causes do not choose to exist, the thoughts about them will continue.

00:07:56--> 00:08:21

These causes are either external, which means everything that preoccupies the hearing inside or internal, such as worries that take one's mind here into the valleys of worldly life. The latter is more difficult as it did not keep one focused on only on only one thing. Lowering the gaze does not help here as at that which happens in the heart alone is enough to keep him distracted.

00:08:23--> 00:08:29

The remedy for external causes is to eliminate everything that distracts the hearing insight. Once you're praying you

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

look at the place of frustration, not pray in a spot with carvings and get rid of anything that distracts his senses. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam once bred in the journey

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

in the image Ania that's a form of cloth

00:08:51--> 00:09:26

in a chameleon, which with ornamental borders, he took it off and said It distracted me a while ago from my brain. Now, so what he means by this point right now. So the second point is that you need to understand at home means you understand exactly the meaning of what you decide or at least what you pronounce when he says horrible as part of the rally. When I say Allahu Akbar Allah says Allah Allah Muhammad when you recite the Quran, you focus on the meaning as well to why so because you know, sometimes the heart is there with the with the love with the love. Your heart is present with the pronouncements. But if it doesn't understand the meaning of it doesn't connect with like, what,

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

especially in the last minutes of Ramadan, people that keep coming and asking me who's starting tonight who's excited tonight. As to why? Well, they want to make sure that the results that they hear somebody's beautiful has a beautiful voice.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

So we focus so much on what on just enjoying the pronouncement, enjoy the sound of the curry, because that gives us joy in the Salah. And there is no doubt about it. It's actually it's important when you pray, and when you listen to listen to beautiful voices well to so that you will strengthen your focus and concentration. But that's not where your focus and attention should be. You should try

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

or best to focus on the meaning of what would be recited, whether you understand Arabic or not, at least if you know what is going to be recited that night, read the translation, read the meaning. So you have an idea what the Imam is going to be recited in that in that evening, it is extremely important that you focus on the Mani of what you recite, because that's what really can bring the tears down, can make the heart shaken and the virus or trembling was because of Halloween. There is a reaction to it And subhanAllah that the other when you have when you start visualizing what you hear in what you decided, when you visualize the meanings of the recitation of the Quran, the brain

00:10:37--> 00:11:16

and the mind has the power to translate those thoughts into physical reaction. That when you literally start thinking about Allah subhana water about Jana about Jehanne number words in Africa and so on, that sometimes translated into fear or awe and shock that your bodies are reacting to it. So that's the essence of being present in your Salah, and he said Rahmatullah Taipan then you need to realize that sometimes we have many distractions of our era, what about some of them are actually very obvious. These cards can be internal or external, the external others the ones that affect your ears and your eyes. And that's why even in a salon the magic over here, we tell people if you have

00:11:16--> 00:11:46

your kids with you, and they're running around next to you and Salah please take them to the room will you be with mommy or daddy? Why? Because we know the sound and the noise in the Salah will be a distraction for you when you try to focus on yourself. Similarly, we recommend that people when they come to the masjid dressed nicely, because that also is going to affect you when you see what you're looking at your youth for example, this is the dance of your of your clothes, which was happened here in the heyday that was mentioned in this in this chapter. And this actually paragraph when you said Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam one day

00:11:47--> 00:12:06

he was he had he had actually had an Amazon seller about to lie was Allamani that Cammisa had marks on it which means it was striped probably or had designs on it. So imagine the proper wording fills with design. So when he did his thorough So what Allah said Amata it seems that those designs distract the his eyes

00:12:07--> 00:12:44

when he was just making his Salah as he was looking down here since they were on the on the on the sleeves probably on his stove, distract with him. So when when he finished Allah the Almighty finished his salah, he took that off, wrapped it up and just give it to his family. He says look, take this to Abuja him. He has an image Enya and in Britannia is more like a thick cloth or, or garment made of wool, and that Cammisa is a soft one. That's why it's easy to design. So he said, Give him this thing and bring his in Britannia. Find her and Hadley and Hadley our honey Ancelotti aren't even I was so distracted because of that.

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

And nowadays if you look around you in the masjid mashallah we all were in designs and I wore the wrong the wrong vest today's funnel

00:12:53--> 00:13:30

and you always wear the plain color right but this time oh my god there is design on it right? Don't take me wrong, it's not haram it is not haram to or something with design when you come to the masjid but if you would like to have more concentration more focus and more kosher the less distraction The eyes are looking at or the ears or listening to the birds so what do you pray at home well we should you make your masala make your own masala word there is no money much distraction you know sometimes we make a masala at home yes I know sometimes you do something for the sake of you know Instagram right is take a nice picture. But if you already want to do yeah and

00:13:30--> 00:14:08

as a true masala for yourself at home, there should be no distraction. Nothing in your cupola, nothing. Even when it comes to the carpet. I know a lot of people when they go to Umrah and Hajj what do they do when they want to buy the carpet for the salah? They buy the most magnificent design mashallah completely opposite you What are you supposed to be doing? Supposed to be? Absolutely no designs plan, you know, plain carpet, so that when you when you make your when you look at the sujood position, it is clear of any distractions. Then he said Rahim Allah Jota Anna. So this is basically he's talking about the distract the external distraction. Then he next he said, but they

00:14:08--> 00:14:36

have you have internal distractions, and these are even harder right now. So what are these and how are we going to fight them? That's the next part in Charlottetown. The remedy of internal causes is to force the cell to focus on what is being read in prayer and occupied with that from everything else. Once you prepare for that before much you prepare for that before commencing the prayer by finishing whatever he is doing and striving to vacate striving to vacate in the heart.

00:14:37--> 00:14:45

He should remind himself of the afterlife, the gravity of journeying before the law and the terror of the station of the Day of Resurrection.

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

If the thoughts do not come to rest by this, he must know that he is only thinking about things that are of concern to him and things he desires. So Tim abandoned those desires and severe and said and sever those connections. So

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

What it says here Rahim Allah Allah Allah Allah says look as for the external internal distractions these are harder right now to combat the external ones easy to combat you close your eyes you go somewhere where you cannot hear that noise for example Hamdulillah you easy you can easily focus right now but the internal one he says those are the ones that you keep fighting and you cannot fighting with why because it's hard that just is inside you then in the hearts. So he says how do you do that? The best thing to do in order for you to combat these inner distractions This is number one, but yesterday Derek a couple of the holy for Salah you need to be prepared to fight these

00:15:34--> 00:16:09

things before you even begin your Salah. So what does that even mean? need to start early make your will do keep a distance between the time when you want to make Salah before you start your Salah. So at least you have a hamdulillah sometime when you do a bad car and so on. So the last thing your mind is occupied with is liquor of Allah subhanaw taala versus if you come in the last five seconds like many people mashallah they're like race cars over here at the masjid. They come on the Imam Tabata Kala and just about to say Allahu Akbar. And I have to say that yesterday last night, I went to pray Russia and VRC north. So I went there, there was about four or five minutes before the iqama

00:16:09--> 00:16:51

time, and I was like, did I miss the salah here, or are we playing at the same time at 1015 so I parked in my spot and waited to see if people are gonna show up or not. And I'm looking at the time Subhanallah around 1014 1014 Right Man one night before the automaton Tabarka Rockman all these brothers just like fighting for parking spots and as easy as you might Easy, easy. So now you come in the last minute for the Salah, you enter the masjid, your mind is busy with what what a traffic light that you actually you crossed and the this person or that maybe you almost hit next to Europe Subhanallah all these distractions will continue with you in Arizona. So it says you need to be

00:16:51--> 00:17:29

prepared by preparing before you enter summer. Give that time that buffer time between beginning your Salah and whatever distraction you had earlier before that, that's obviously if you have the time for it, you can make time for that in shallow Tana called Urbaniak Dasha Allah or Buddha or the ultra vada he says that mean in Madonna teacher Corrado, one of the science of your good understanding of yourself is that before you start your Salah yoke there should Allah Who good over whatever you're doing in your hand right now. So for example, I'm typing a letter and I need maybe five more minutes. The sooner you make your salah the better there's there's no doubt about it. But

00:17:29--> 00:18:10

if you stopping right now and go and make your Salah, your mind is visible the last paragraph, then no, it's better for you to go and take extra 510 minutes to finish that letter. And then go and make Osawa your mind free of that concern completely. And that's coming from where from Hadith Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he suggested for us sort of what the law says and he says call last Allah to be 100 Tom, whatever who I've ever asked but there should be no Salah there shouldn't be no Salah when you're when the food is present, and there should be no Salah when you need to use the bathroom. Because if you're going to be praying when the food is ready, obviously you're going to

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

make your Salah in three seconds.

00:18:13--> 00:18:33

Just like many people these days when they come back from work and the wife says food is ready, because inshallah okay let me pray quickly and then come to eat inshallah Donna, let me pray quickly, and then come to eat instead of saying, Okay, let me eat quickly. Then I gotta make salah. Now let me just go pray quickly then go you know to eat or sometimes let me pray quickly and then go into the bathroom.

00:18:34--> 00:19:08

As you might use the bathroom make fresh photo and then go pray take your time. Right. So that is definitely when you start your Salah while your mind is busy with the food or visit with using the bathroom. How do you think you're going to focus on your balance. So it's always better for you to be clear minded and clear heart before you started rebounding to Salah. He says also to him Allah to Allah. And as well of course you try your best to remember the akhira remember your station before Allah subhanho wa Taala think about you know the reward for those who go there performing properly, those who miss a battle with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Think about that. Because if you're of God, if

00:19:08--> 00:19:29

these thoughts don't cease, don't stop. That means you're attached too much to these Russia. This is actually Shaohua your mind your heart. So attach these matters. And you need to start reevaluating yourself, and making sure that you cut your heart out of these auditions out of your heart so that it never become a distraction for you now

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

know that when an illness has become very rooted, only strong medicine helps. When a disease is strong, it keeps pulling the brain person who in terms who in turn tries to to repel it until the player ends in this in that state of contention. This is like a man who sits under a tree in order to clear his mind, but the sound of the sparrows keep disturbing him so so he drives them away with a stick that he has in his hand. The sparrows fly away, but just as his mind is about to settle there

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Come back and occupy him again. He is then told this will never stop. If you want to get rid of the problem cut the tree. The tree of desires is the same. When it grows high in spirits, its branches. It attracts one's thoughts just like a tree. Just like a tree it tracks Barrows, and filth attracts flies. This makes one wasted life in repelling something that cannot be repelled. The reason behind these thoughts of God is the love of this word. What does that mean? What does what's metaphor his beacon over here? Imagine yourself you want to write nice, beautiful poetry, right? And he said, I'm gonna look for a spot that is amazing shallow tan, so you go under a shade of a tree, you see the

00:20:41--> 00:20:53

tree on the top of the of the mountain or the hill. So this is very poetic spot, Mashallah. Very artistic moment. So you go up there, and you sit down under the shade of that beautiful tree, and you're about to start, you're thinking about your first line, and guess what happens?

00:20:54--> 00:21:21

Tweety birds goes up there. And then another one comes, and another one comes. And as you try to focus your thoughts on this, what happens, you get distracted, you start looking up and check on these birds and these birds come in more and becomes a huge distraction. Every time you shoot these birds, they fly away and then the what happens, they come back again, when on earth are you going to put those two words together, it's not going to happen. Because this is exactly the example of your life and your heart would come to the evidence.

00:21:23--> 00:21:35

If you've already established the tree of Shabbat, the tree of desire the three of these you know distractions if you have it in your heart already established over there. Obviously, all the shower is going to come to

00:21:36--> 00:21:54

all the thoughts are going to come to light if you're already planted this in your heart, all these distraction all these desires, all these thoughts can come to this to this tree. So the moment you say Allah Akbar, suddenly all these thoughts come to that tree. So instead of fighting the birds, what you need to do take the tree out

00:21:56--> 00:22:11

to cut that tree out of your heart so that no birds would come in there because there is nothing to stand on. So that's the example that he's trying to say look, you already put a seed for these desires and Shabbat in your heart and your time. What is that exactly? Literally an example

00:22:12--> 00:22:34

sometimes after Ramadan or Ramadan starts for instance, we make commitment we make commitment I'm going to quit doing this I'm going to stop doing this I'm gonna stop doing this. So make a lot of commitments for ourselves about these matters. But then the biggest problem is that when Ramadan comes in Yes, we take off the clock of that lifestyle. But where do we put it we don't burn it we don't throw it away we hang it behind the door

00:22:36--> 00:22:41

so that after Ramadan, just in case if things don't work out, I still have it you know, I can put it back on

00:22:42--> 00:23:15

it remember this if you really want to cut that three out of the heart, you're not gonna take it out and plant it somewhere else just in case I don't want to waste that it looks beautiful anyway, right? I hear you but a distraction that comes with it is actually is costing you a lot. So if you would like me to have that heart to be free of all these thoughts, then take that seed out take that plant out where that those thoughts keep coming and flocking to that how it work. Otherwise if you don't, they're gonna keep coming and these thoughts gonna keep coming and we'll all feel distracted now

00:23:18--> 00:23:42

place was asked Do you fall into self talk about the work about some worldly matters what brain so he replied, I would rather be struck with spirits in the nude is myself doing that. So this is of course he's bringing some of these models. Sometimes these models are for us just like very idealistic models. I'm gonna I'm gonna be an advocate for him Allah Allah Allah one time he was asked basically

00:23:43--> 00:24:03

when you start your Salah, he's one of the barons who had basically said that they asked him when you start your Salah Do you always you know get these thoughts and these distractions Salah foul and deliver a senator feel like I'd rather be hit with all these spears and swords and errors than dealing with that stuff.

00:24:04--> 00:24:44

Like dealing with the sword and the spirit is easier for me I can handle this but to handle distraction that comes to my ensalada I can't handle this. So therefore he says I always keep myself clear because I know myself I cannot handle them. I cannot handle these thoughts if they come to me they will ruin my brother and my salah. So you always keep himself clear from these thoughts and these distractions now know that eliminating the hearts love for this world is difficult and having it is really removed completely. So do your best into remove what you can. Allah is the grantor of success and the provider of assistance so what mmm Kodama Rahim Allah is saying, or bring them back

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

to reality. Like I'm bringing you back to Earth. I know how but dunya the love for this dunya is impossible to remove from the heart. As a matter of fact, Allah Subhana Allah made it clear to us in the Quran. hawkbill he says 100 Allah tan Zealand as a caribou shower. It was

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

made beautiful to people the love for this design. So it's by nature. Allah Subhana Allah made the inclination, that inclination we have to these desires by nature for us why? Otherwise we're never going to procreate. We're never going to start you know, working hard to earn this money and make this wealth and build this house and progress in life. If there is no incentive like this, then if there isn't, there's no way we can progress in this dunya but ALLAH SubhanA data also says for us in the Quran, for worked as a female attack Allahu darle Afra what happens honestly becoming a dunya Allah says Allah subhana wa Tada that whatever Allah has given you in this dunya seek the pleasure

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

of your Lord for the akhira. But don't forget about your share in this dunya. Today, unfortunate is happening, WhatsApp is the opposite. Everybody is just fighting for the biggest share in this dunya. And the alpha is on their spare time.

00:25:48--> 00:26:27

Our Alpha has become in our spare time. So by the end of the day, if I have time, I'll come to the masjid. If I'm not tired, if I'm not exhausted, for example, I will come to the masjid. If I if I have time, I'll open the Masaryk, for example, the Quran I'll do this other. So our answer unfortunately these days, it becomes just on the spirit time. Now that there were so yes, he says, Look, I understand removing the love for the dunya from the heart is impossible. And I'm not asking him to do this, he says, or I'm asked is that put your effort wished he had make an effort to focus on your on your alpha, make an effort to remove the attachment to the dunya from your heart, and

00:26:27--> 00:26:38

dunya is supposed to be in your hand, not on your heart. Because of the dunya goes into your heart it will control you. As long as it's in the hands of hamdulillah you're still in control of the dunya

00:26:39--> 00:27:00

glorifying integrating Allah, which originates this number three right now. He said basically the third meaning of how to bring the life to Salah. So the first one was what do you guys remember? The presence of the heart? The second one? Understanding what your this what you didn't, what you pronounced and what you decided. And the third one right now is this

00:27:01--> 00:27:41

glorifying integrating Allah, which originates from two things, knowing the sublimity and my Allah Most High and knowing the worthless and knowing the worthlessness of the self, and the fact that it is up to you. In other words, glorifying degrading Allah originates from two types of knowing submissive humility and feeling. So this is the third the third point right now which is how can you bring life to your Salah at Dollywood Allah subhanho wa Taala Well, hey Betula you have this glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala glorifying Allah azza wa jal revealing him subhanho wa Taala because this is extremely important. What what happens when you truly put Allah Subhana Allah

00:27:41--> 00:28:19

in your life where he deserves you know the opposition from him. Now what is position what is position with Allah azza wa jal you His servant, you're a slave, and that suddenly become an unknown, become an honor is not something to be ashamed of. Nowadays, when we hear the word being a slave, or being for example, submissive to something, as long as it's something for the merits of dunya it there's a negative connotation with that. But when it comes to Allah subhana wa Tada being submissive to Allah azza wa jal being the slave of Allah subhana wa taala. That is an honor. It's a privilege. It's a privilege. So if you know your position with Allah azza wa jal that he is my

00:28:19--> 00:28:57

master, I am the servant, I am the slave whatever he commands me, I will do it for him. subhanho wa Taala that gives you now the true understanding of Allah azza wa jal glorifying Allah subhanaw taala in a manner that suits his majesty. But if you don't have that reverence of Allah azza wa jal, like unfortunately nowadays, people they think of themselves, you know, that have the authority and the power as if they become gods, as Allah says, In the Quran of writing into Allah, have you seen the one who's making his own desire his own god, that self glorification is becoming out of control in this society in this culture, it's all about me, it's all about me. So if you would like to read it

00:28:57--> 00:29:21

to find yourself, connecting with Allah subhanaw taala and salah they know your place with Allah azza wa jal. How do we know that he goes by doing recognizing two things, man refer to Gera Allah Tabata Katana knowing Allah subhana wa Taala as it should be, like the glory of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Majesty of Allah subhana wa Tana, and that happens by what did you mean by doing what? How can you recognize Allah's majesty and order by studying what

00:29:25--> 00:29:50

names of Allah and His attributes, the Beautiful Names of Allah subhana wa Taala and his beautiful attributes, the Beautiful Names of Allah azza wa jal and his attributes, when you know that he is a semi Elbasy allow them and moto camber, all these amazing Beautiful Names of Allah and His attributes when you recognize this, you realize how magnificent he is Hannah Wattana and that realization gives her a message about yourself that you are insignificant.

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

besides Allah subhanho wa Taala he has control this whole creation with what

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

the most common thing we all see around us or we can

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Need to combat that? We can find this what is that?

00:30:02--> 00:30:07

How did Allah Subhan Allah made the whole this whole universe submit them through?

00:30:08--> 00:30:09


00:30:10--> 00:30:12

We send Arabic Subhana mokara la vida will mount

00:30:14--> 00:30:34

praise me to him Subhana wa Taala the one who subdued his creation through death because no matter how great how strong, how knowledgeable how rich whatever that you are, at the end of the day, what's going to happen? You're gonna die in a coma YouTube and on my YouTube, you will die and and they're gonna die. When someone dies, what is that common statement we pronounced when we hear someone's death? What do we say?

00:30:35--> 00:31:07

In Allah for Inelia Rajon we all belong to Allah and to him our attention will be what does that statement mean? Anyway, it's a true reminder that you can't be you can't be individual on your own. You can't just have that self independence, you can't, no matter how much you try to think that your independence from ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that is a reminder that you cannot be forever. So it kind of like brings you where you belong. So that's why it's extremely important. We recognize ourselves how insignificant we are to Allah subhanho wa Taala to give Allah subhanaw taala reverence that he deserves now,

00:31:08--> 00:31:41

but also gives life to the prayer is who for it is something additional to fear. After all, many, many, many men glorify King, many men glorifies the king, and reveals him in fear of his punishment, but also hopes for his benevolence. And the meaning of that is basically you don't just need to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala just out of fear, it's out of reverence as well, two out of all out of love, that's a very essential and very important, he goes out Raja is you, you don't just feel you feel them out of love as well to subhanaw taala. Now,

00:31:42--> 00:32:00

the brain person should hope for the reward for his prayer, and also have fear of being punishment, punished for his negligence. So that's something you also balance it, you hope for that award. But at the same time, you know that if you messed it up, you're gonna be punished. So you always make sure that you do it right in the first time. Now,

00:32:02--> 00:32:35

a person should have presence of heart in all parts of the brain. When he hears the more than he should imagine the call to stand before the Lord and get ready to answer it. Let him Consider well, how he's going to answer and what what kind of body is going to attend. So what a man with a Kodama hammer has mentioned right now, some of the aspects of Ibadan preparation for Salah that should help you bring your shoe and presidents have the heart and the soul. Because look, when you hear the other repeat with them. It's a reminder that you're going to be praying, and you're going to be standing before your Lord subhanaw taala. That's the first realization and he's going to start

00:32:35--> 00:33:07

talking about when you put your clothes on when you face the Qibla when you do this, when you do this, each one of them should be a reminder, another reminder, conscious reminder about the value of your Salah to bring your heart into it. Otherwise if it becomes robotic, and once you have to adapt your condition when you do that, then you're gonna make quick will do and you pray, you have no idea what you recited in your Salah. But you need to always be conscious of the preparation for Salah. So it's going to mention some of these preparations. Yes, we need to bring his nakedness he should know what he's now hiding. He should know that he is now hiding the shameful parts of his body from the

00:33:07--> 00:33:44

creation. Once you realize this, let him remember the thickness of his inner self and the shamefulness that lies within that there is only known to the created this nakedness cannot be covered from him. And it's expiation is regret bashfulness and feared. He said look when you pray, you need to pray with something that you've covered you right? So as you cover your hour, what do you think about you need that Salah to cover your shame before Allah subhanaw taala the things that you've done that you will be regretful for, he says and the only way you can really cover those with what are hemiola to hear you have these things another regret and health from Allah subhanho wa

00:33:44--> 00:34:06

Taala and also higher, the Morris and being bashful because you don't want to be exposed at all before Allah subhana wa that before his creation. So remind yourself when you put your clothes that you also need to cover the shame of coming out of Allah was the submission to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, when he faces the Tipler he turned his face away from all other directions to the direction of Allah's house,

00:34:08--> 00:34:23

exalted v. So it is even more important that he turns his heart towards Allah Himself. And just as he turned away from everything else upon turning towards the house, his heart should also turn away from everything else upon turning to Allah. This is a question that tubeless symbolic

00:34:24--> 00:34:58

The symbolism is facing the Qibla is what that you're facing ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and you face Allah as in order for you to face Allah and Allah alone, you're going to need to take your face away from everything else. So just that by always looking where's my cupola, which directions assembler when you could pray any direction, probably would be fine if you didn't know the direction of the couplers but that the way we always meticulous about finding the direction of the Qibla hamdulillah once you face that direction, the Qibla you know the first thing Allah and only Allah azza wa jal and that in itself, that the symbolism that you know you focus on one direction everything else is

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

now out of the way Oh,

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

Did Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, when you say Allahu Akbar, make sure that your heart does not below your tongue. For if your heart holds something greater than Allah Most High, you have luck, you have like, beware of considering your desires created by finding by finding that you would rather be obeyed them than obey Allah. So when once you say Allahu Akbar, he says, Look, this is now it means what? By the way, what what's what's, what do we call this text? We are when we started salah, what's it called?

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

The haram or the Hareem, right? What does that mean?

00:35:33--> 00:36:06

Has the meaning of prohibition also sanctuary, because the moment you say Allahu Akbar, the essence of saying Allahu Akbar, according to Hareem, whatever was Halal before suddenly becomes haram. That's number one. Like talking for example, looking around and whatever you do after or eating and drinking Hassan, it becomes haram, because this is something significant. Also, Atari means that this now space that you're going to be praying right now and although the time that indicate for the salah is a sanctuary, and you're not going to break that center, you're going to be dedicated into that center in Charlotte and we spoke about this last time if you guys remember, those few minutes

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

are what these are portal to the alpha.

00:36:09--> 00:36:22

Those are the few minutes that you spend in this dunya in salah they take you out of this world temporarily. So if you dedicate those moments, truly to the focus on the ACARA it gives you that sense of peace and tranquility that Allah promised He will give you

00:36:23--> 00:36:38

and he would love to be more into the salah. Why because it takes you out of the waters of this world because you connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala if you truly connect your heart to Allah azza wa jal otherwise, if you still connected the dunya you don't get the good that benefit that you wish for. Now, when you say

00:36:40--> 00:37:14

on your road team, know that this sentence entails breaking with be taking oneself to him for protection. If you do not do this in your heart, your speech had no meaning. Then understand what you recite and focus with your heart when you say Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mean all praises and thanks are due to Allah the Lord of all words. Remember his genuineness when you recite a rock man in law mean? The All Merciful, the Most Merciful and his mind when you recite

00:37:15--> 00:37:53

Malik you with Deen, Master of the Day of Judgment, applied his way of wandering to everything to recite So Imam Kodama Rahim Allah has been given an example of the Quran Salah he goes Look, here's an example for you. Whenever you say are audible, you ministry tone or regime, you seek refuge with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada from the castle devil the shaytaan. Now, what's the meaning of this word? When you say Allahu Akbar to recite the Quran inside audible, I'm sure Origen say My Lord, I seek refuge with You. I want to come to protect me. So that's a reminder you seeking protection with Allah subhanaw taala. And he goes when you say Alhamdulillah your beloved enemy, remind yourself that he

00:37:53--> 00:38:30

is the Lord of the words of Hannah with Rama Rahim, kindness of Allah Subhana Allah and His mercy and His Rama, Maliki and within that he is the king and the greater King Subhanallah of that day. So he said, like the fatty how we all decide every single day. Don't tell me I don't understand Arabic language. Don't tell me that. You recite Fatiha every single day at least 17 times if you decide that the five daily prayers at least 17 times you tell them you don't even know the meaning of the words or the Fatiha. If you don't know the meaning of the word of the fact that's a disaster by now. And if you don't then learn it, because every time we recite al Fatiha focus on the meaning of the

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

words also the Fatiha at least certain Fattah now

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

it has been edited. That means it may have been

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

one strain is prayer

00:38:41--> 00:39:23

for isn't for isn't paid off in Naboo Vida nohcra for NA Corunna Go ahead. And when the trumpet is blown, he collapsed and died. This was this one because imagine what the situation would be like and that goes to his demise. Obviously this is an extreme example Gemma Subhanallah Tamia Rahim Allah he says, Look, the example the difference between the Sahaba and these righteous or Lama and self is a Sahaba. They have a balanced view. These are Amma and these setups. They focus so much sometimes on fear of Allah subhanaw taala to the extent that it really ruins them completely. Like when they hear something like we said, the mind has the power of visualizing everything that you have the body

00:39:23--> 00:39:32

react to it. So when he was visualizing the knocker of Innoko the science the scenes of the Day of Judgment, it made him so terrified, so scared, he died.

00:39:33--> 00:39:57

A Sahaba Allahu Anhu. They heard that from the Prophet Salah lesson firsthand. They prayed beyond the prophets that was him as well to the result of his times or the Alana. None of them, you know, reported to collapse because of that. Why? Because with that reverence, they still have the strength of a man and they know that this fish should rather than take an action, so I wanted to make sure that when you read these examples, don't take them as wow, I wish I can die like this. No, please don't watch that.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

That's not a good way to wish any further.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

because you need to make sure that when you read this IR yes you reflect on it, but it should translate and bring in good into your life inshallah Donna now

00:40:09--> 00:40:49

when you when you bow, make yourself feel humility and feel especially humble when you prostrate for free you have now put yourself in his proper place in return the branch to the route by prostrating whether it was created from obviously, the St. Jude is one of the most humiliating positions in life of people because you put your forehead which is where you pride yourself as an intellectual person, smart person, you put it all the way on the ground for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's a sign of humbleness and humility, which is why the Prophet Salah Salem you say that Allah subhana wa Bucha will reward you in this position, that when you do that, you are in the closest position to

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

Allah azza wa jal so make you

00:40:52--> 00:41:23

may go dry because you're connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala right now now, trying to understand and taste the meaning of the words of remembrance. Know that performing the prayer with observance of these internal conditions leads to hearts purity, leads to the hearts purity from rustiness and the appearance of the light and the appearance of the light whereby the greatness of the worship is perceived and his secrets are gazed upon, but only those who know who now who know understand who now understand this,

00:41:25--> 00:42:04

but only those who know understand this, as for those who engage in performing the exterior actions of the prayer without focusing on their meanings, they did not get anything from that from that they did not get anything from that. In fact, they deny that such things even exist. So it says, Look, if you would like to learn from the Salah, that's how you do it. You look into the inner secret of your sujood your pronunciation of the Quran, Pura Vida, en ta that's how you benefit otherwise, you're just going to be making a Salah automatically just mechanical Eva that has no meaning to it. May Allah subhanaw taala give us that for sure in our surah Allah min and give us the ability to

00:42:04--> 00:42:08

understand the beauty of Salah and follow the spirit of the Salah Allah

00:42:12--> 00:42:15

hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen Salallahu Salam o Baraka Nabina Muhammad, Anwar Ali was seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama bad from the book of Imam Raja Rahim Allah Allah Jami rumoured Hickam we are studying Hadith number 10 from a brand new year. I did read through the Allahu Donalda kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Aleppo you will like but it will Lata Eva one Allah to Allah Ahmed al Mina de mama Robin mursaleen for call. Yeah, you are also the coulomb Anta EBRT, military brat to Armando Solea Wirkkala Tara you Alladhina amanu coolamon tayyiba Tamara's apna calm.

00:44:19--> 00:44:39

And then he said, Tomorrow Dr. Rajan, your three your three to suffer. Ashoka as Bara Yamada, Hilah sama Yara Yara Omar Tambo haram Omar Basu haram Rama shabu haram Allah so haram will won't be able to use the jab with our Hydra who Muslim so we're going to do the translation inshallah right now. So

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

So, the messenger from Assembla has

00:44:46--> 00:44:52

been the microphone cross between them salam ala Rasulillah are planning he was talking me as mine.

00:44:54--> 00:44:55

So in the translation,

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

I will go right over the last one. I said

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

messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Allah Islam said, Allah Exalted is He is pure, and only accepts that which is pure. Allah orders the believers with that,

00:45:12--> 00:45:37

with which he ordered the messengers. And he says, exalted easy in the transmission of the meaning of the iron messengers, Eat of the good things they about and act rightly. And he says, Exalted is He, in the translation of the meaning, you who have Iman eat, have good things to say about we have provided for you.

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

And then

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

he mentions

00:45:43--> 00:46:29

a disheveled dusty man, lengthening his journey and stretching out his hands to the sky saying, Lord, Lord, and his food is haram, his drink, haram, his clothing haram, and he has been fed on the haram. So how can that be answered? And this was narrated by Imam Muslim. So what's the meaning of this hadith, although the translation says here, pure wholesome food, but we're gonna see that actually the definition the the meaning of the head goes beyond just the food. It's not just about the food, really. It's about living a life of purity. Like everything that you do is considered pure. We're going to talk about it in a second shallow data. Here the purpose of Assam says in Allah

00:46:29--> 00:47:06

Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhana does pure accept nothing but I will just pure. That's simple message to you and I, if you would like to deliver some that Allah subhanaw taala there has to be some that Allah subhanaw will accept and Allah is pure, and accept nothing but pure Subhana wa Tada. And then he gave an example, kava and Allah Tala amaro maybe mama Robin, ma Celine. So the command to live a righteous life, the command to live a pure life was given to the Prophets as well as the believers. So not just the messengers of God required to live especially a specific standard of life, the believers are required to follow the same example. And he gave this to be mentioned

00:47:06--> 00:47:17

here in the text and the Hadith. Then he gave an example of a situation, which is called the Medaka Raja Torah sufferer, he mentioned a person, someone who's disheveled

00:47:18--> 00:47:51

the man who was on the road on the journey for a long, long time, like the circumstances that the Prophet says I'm describing, make it easy for anyone to feel sorry for this individual and answer his call, right. And this man right now, he is in this situation on a journey, the shovel, tired, exhausted, and when you say on a journey means what his stranger is not on his own land. Maybe he doesn't even speak the language he doesn't have anywhere to go in this place. So he's the most extreme vulnerable moment of his life. And He's raising his hand because he realized I have no one else to go to except to

00:47:53--> 00:48:05

my Lord. And he goes, you're, you're my lord, my lord, raising his hand to the skies and his demand and the RMB helped me out yada yada. The Professor Sam says But look, even that person

00:48:06--> 00:48:11

he is haram. He drank Hara he was fed with heroin. Everything is

00:48:12--> 00:48:20

how do you think this is gonna is going to be answered? Why would Allah even answered his call. That's what the professor Sam is saying. Now this hadith is obviously is very scary.

00:48:21--> 00:48:44

is extremely, extremely scary reading. Because we live in a time right now the Shabbat are all over the place. The barriers between halal or haram are extremely, extremely thin and very fine lines. You don't even know even when you go to eat and Hala restaurant for example. Still some of the ingredients that they use, maybe they've cooked and God knows where they come from.

00:48:45--> 00:49:17

When you try when when you have a handler worlds that you try to stay away from the Haram you don't want to participate in Riba and cheating in any of that stuff. But still your mind is coming from companies that deal with certain you know elements of haram they put their money in certain account that concert haram there is always that element of the Haram so it makes our life difficult. How should we understand the meaning of this hadith and living also a normal life in our town? That's going to be our discussion here inshallah with the barcode Allah. So we're gonna read first the meaning of the word to you. What does it mean when the Prophet says observe about Allah subhana wa

00:49:17--> 00:49:21

Taala in Allah you and what does it mean?

00:49:22--> 00:49:42

And what does it mean when the Prophet saw Sam says about the believers also like Balu lotta Eva so Allah has to you and he except nothing but the two different words. What is the word comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala what is the when it comes to the creation? Let's see what says so the author, page 156 inshallah Donna,

00:49:43--> 00:49:50

the author even Raja Rahim Allah, he states his words sallallahu alayhi salam,

00:49:52--> 00:49:54

Allah Exalted is He is pure,

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

have also been added in a hadith of side even among workers.

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

Rhodiola one, from the prophets of Allah Han insulin, as Allah is pure, and he loves that which is pure, he is clean and loves cleanliness, he is liberally generous and loves liberality.

00:50:18--> 00:50:19

And it is narrated

00:50:20--> 00:51:05

by a Timothy. But there are some things said about his chain of transmission by up here means pure. The meaning is so let's stop on this one. So the meaning of ALLAH SubhanA does is for you means Allah has power that is pure, pure in the madness that says majesty means is Moonstone Anna No, no Marcus panna Matata that Allah azza wa jal is free of any blemishes, any deficiencies that can be attributed to him and these are case creation, Allah's Palace, fewer of any kind of deficiencies. So that's the meaning of St. Manasa. When I say pure, here's subhanaw taala free of all these nacoss all these errors or mistakes that will happen to human beings to Allah subhana wa at the last minute

00:51:05--> 00:51:08

of being pure, but what does it mean to be pure when it comes to humans now?

00:51:10--> 00:52:01

So, so, so now, the meaning is that I'm always holding the microphone close, okay. The meaning is that Allah subhanaw taala is wholly pure and free of all defects and flaws. This is as in his words Exalted is He was able to lead lithium Ebina What are you gonna lead by Bertie? Would you can mobile, una Mima? Kowloon. good women are for good men. And good men are for good women. The latter are innocent of what they say, bother with the translation says good, although you weren't meant to be in the meaning of pure that's what it means now.

00:52:02--> 00:52:09

What what is meant is free of these things and pollution of indecency know

00:52:11--> 00:52:25

the meaning of his words and encode that and he only accepts that which is pure ENCODE has also been transmitted in the Hadith, on Southern when

00:52:26--> 00:53:11

no one gives the Hadith. Studying code. No one gives sadaqa from pure earnings. And Allah only accepts that which is pure in code, meaning that Allah only accepts Zika and South Africa, which are pure and halal. So I've been a barrage of Rahim Allah says, look, the meaning of now type Allah is pure is understood. He is perfect Subhana wa Taala free from any deficiencies, but he accepts nothing but pure that second period now what does it mean? Because there's an exclusive meaning which means charity. So he's not does not accept from you anything unless it is considered pure. So when you give charity he says, it has to be pure. That's the first meaning for it. And he called it

00:53:11--> 00:53:35

the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Allah Sam says, let us have the Kohala Masada no one gives a charity mean Kasbah into it from pure earning pure earnest says what about hola hola, hola, Eva. And Allah only accept that which is pure. So that's why he says the meaning of this hadith, probably speaking about charity, the exclusive meaning, but then he's going to elaborate the second paragraph, that there is a broader meaning for the meaning of of the word to you. What is it exactly? Yes, go ahead.

00:53:41--> 00:53:46

Some say that the meanings of this hadith about which we are talking,

00:53:48--> 00:54:40

starting quote, and he only accepts that which is pure ENCODE is more general and universal than that, and that he only accepts actions which are good and pure of all things, which would corrupt them, such as Austin says ostentation and conceit. And he only accepts property which is pure and halal. Because purity is used to describe actions, sayings and beliefs, all of which are categorized as either pure or found. So the following is that you see and the text here on the screen as well, too. In the book, Imam Abu Rajab Rahim Allah, His coding these three things he goes, Look when it comes to describing something to be pure or otherwise, it could be actually attributed to your deeds

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

to your statements and your true beliefs. And he gave three examples for this. The first is that you see there, Pillai is devil Sabetha water Ebola algebra Catarratto. Sabine, the last hasn't a translation say bad things and good things are not the same. So this ayah he says this is refers to the AMA, your deeds, Allah was not the good deed.

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

added not the same, that's what it means. The second idea and I'm Tara Kay father of Allah Mata and Kalamata, Antiva Kashia, Jarrett and Eva. Allah says have you seen Have you not seen that the example that Allah sets forth panna cotta Anna for the word that is pure tayyiba Kalimantan Teva. So the words can also be described as being what being pure. And also example of the

00:55:21--> 00:55:58

leader, your belief system, the idea that he mentioned there call Illa Allah that Allah Muhammad melodica totally been on page 157 alladhina doorphone Monica tota, you've been speaking about the believers that the end is when they take their souls, their take their souls when the righteous when they're tied up in which means they're pure, actually, that's what it means. He goes so therefore, when it comes to the Prophet Salla Samson, Allah does not accept that unless some that is pure tayyiba. It is in your deeds, your statements, and your also your RT that you in your heart, what you hold on your heart, whatever you want to offer, in terms of your deeds, in terms of your words.

00:55:58--> 00:56:02

And in terms, of course, what you hold in your heart, it has to be pure.

00:56:03--> 00:56:22

If that is not pure, Allah will reject that. So it's not just about the charity, it's not about the properties. It also means about your Ibadah it's about drama and your words, your thoughts, your heart, it has to all be to you. Now, let's move on to the next one shallow Tana.

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

On page we're going on page

00:56:26--> 00:56:27


00:56:29--> 00:57:09

The people have knowledge differ as to whether the person who performs Hajj with haram wealth or praise in clothing, which is haram, less and less positive to understand that the concept that this paragraph a question comes to us, which is actually very, very common. Every time had season starts, people come with this question, Chef, you know, I have student loans, can I go to hedge? Okay, I have a mortgage that I'm paying and unfortunately, conventional banking, can I go to hedge? You know, I work for a bank, I work for this, I work for that. Can I go to hedge? What is their concern? Their concern is that they're afraid that if they go to Hajj with this kind of earning with this

00:57:09--> 00:57:31

kind of income is not going to be accepted from them. Why? Because in Allah Allah you will lie to Allah favor. Allah is pure, and accept nothing but that which is pure. So that's where the concept is coming from. What about charities? What about food? What about, you know, your other Ybarra? What about salah? For example, if you were in something from haram, for example, would that be accepted or not? That's what he's going to be discussing over here. Now,

00:57:32--> 00:58:08

two statements are narrated of Imam Ahmed about it. And these aforementioned had AIDS, show that actions, action is not acceptable along with engagement in that which is haram. However, acceptability can mean Allah being so it's three things what it says away when the Prophet SAW said Allah Jacoba Allah, Allah tayyiba, Allah does not accept anything unless it's pure, until you What's the meaning of accepting the alcohol over here? Does that mean the acceptance of validity or acceptance of

00:58:10--> 00:58:39

a virtue? If you say acceptance of validity, that means it's rejected whatever that you do, Allah, we're not gonna say that. If you say acceptance of virtue, means that you know what, even if you do it in these circumstances, it's still acceptable for you in terms of you have done your your form, you've done your form, but don't expect their word for it. There's no virtue for doing it, but you still need to do it. So that's what it says. Okay, so it's going to mention three meanings to the word acceptance, and what are these three minutes number one?

00:58:40--> 00:59:21

So acceptability can mean a loving, contented with action and praising the one who does the action, praising him among the angels and showing pride in him. Like what like the judge when they go to Hajj ALLAH SubhanA wa Dona is actually asking the angels what are these people want from me? Allah subhanaw Now praising the hijab for what they're doing. So he goes, acceptance. When Allah when the Prophet says, Allah is not going to accept that from him, Allah says, Stay, that means he's this person, he has to do it. We shouldn't be expecting allowed it is with them shouldn't be accepted Allah subhanaw will praise shouldn't be accepted or expected that Allah will mention him among this

00:59:21--> 00:59:47

this congregation of the angels, you shouldn't be accepting that virtue. But you have to still do it. That's one meaning the second one, it can also mean the attainment of reward and you compensate for it. So that's the second meeting. Allah has not going to accept that unless the study means you have to do it, but you're not going to get the reward for it. Just like in the Hadith of the prophets, Allah Sam says if someone drinks alcohol, if someone drinks wine, the promises themselves Karla took Bala Losartan Arbaeen Allah Allah,

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

the salah of 40 Nights will not be accepted from him. What does that mean? Does it mean I don't have to pray for this period 40 days because I'm not getting anything out of it. No, no. You still need to pray as an

01:00:00--> 01:00:12

obligation, but you're not gonna get the reward for it. Because now you'd be prevented from getting the virtue of what you did, but you're still obligated to credit for the formula. That's what he means by it. Number three,

01:00:13--> 01:00:28

it can also mean the discharge of the obligation. And that is the second meaning of saying it could mean that is not going to be valid at all, will not be valid at all. Meaning even if you do it, Allah, we're not gonna accept that. Let me give you an example.

01:00:30--> 01:00:40

Let's say if someone prays which is coming in another example later, if someone prays wherein a man for example is praying Salah and he's wearing a silk shirt

01:00:41--> 01:00:56

silk are men allowed to wear silk Kojima? Minella doorsill right, but he's wearing a nice beautiful fancy silk shirt Mashallah. He wants to look nice and salah, so he wants that beautiful, nice, beautiful silk shirt, and he wears that sort of shirt and he says Allahu Akbar he prays

01:00:57--> 01:01:00

What do you think of his salah? Is it going to be valid or invalid?

01:01:03--> 01:01:15

Yeah, Jamar someone made who Tahara came to the masjid. He prayed vision the Qibla did everything perfect in regards to the Salah and he had mashallah beautiful kosher hamdulillah

01:01:16--> 01:01:20

but he was wearing a silk shirt was sort of a Salah

01:01:22--> 01:01:23

how have you say his Salah is valid

01:01:25--> 01:01:33

okay, but he's what is it? What is your committing in that moment? Haram right is coming in Haram doesn't matter.

01:01:35--> 01:01:40

Let me give another scenario. This man, he stole a prayer rug

01:01:41--> 01:01:42

to pray on it

01:01:43--> 01:01:47

because he didn't want to miss the salah. What's the ruling of a Salah write down that moment?

01:01:49--> 01:01:51

Gemma what's wrong with the salah

01:01:52--> 01:01:57

sister she's in a rush she wants she stole a hijab she puts it on Masha Allah insha Allah Akbar

01:01:58--> 01:02:32

what's really good for Salah right now is he these are the example that we're talking about over here right now this Allah ma they discuss this as in the humbly school they say look, we you will either you will separate between these two issues like say when it comes to the obligation of Salah is one thing. And observation of the prohibition of wearing silk or praying on a stolen carpet is another thing. There's two different rules. So if you miss one, don't miss the other one. Because a gentleman FATCA those two sites are actually separated. So therefore we say his Salah is valid, but he's committing a sin by doing that.

01:02:33--> 01:03:12

The other folks they say no, no, no, no. And now what if I said, if there is a prohibition on a subject, it would actually invalidate the action itself. So if someone is praying on a stolen carpet, to make salah, you're doing something haram for it. So the whole actual be invalid altogether. That's an opinion. Wala Jota? Um, there's a gentleman FATCA these are two separate areas over here. What does that exactly mean? If someone goes to hajj, if someone goes to hedge, and they use that money that is not 100%, halal or pure, where there has to be acceptable. That was the argument that he's talking about where Allah Allah, the hedge, as an obligation, it removes the

01:03:12--> 01:03:25

liability for hygienic style, because they've done their hedge, but to expect the reward from Allah subhana wa taala. That's a different story. That's the one thing because now they've done the hedge, unfortunately, not in a perfect manner. Now.

01:03:26--> 01:03:27


01:03:28--> 01:04:00

If what is meant is acceptance with the first or second meanings, that does not prevent it being a discharge of the obligation. Now, just as it is narrated, that the prayer of a runaway slave is not acceptable, nor that of a wife with whom her husband is angry, nor the prayer of someone who goes to a fortune teller, nor that of someone who drinks wine for 40 days.

01:04:01--> 01:04:25

What is meant, and Allah knows best is the lack of acceptance in the first and the second sense above. And that's what he means is a look. That doesn't mean that the Salah is invalid, no, so that is still valid, but they don't accept that expect the reward and the praise from ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for what they have done. That's what he means by that statement over here, keep going.

01:04:27--> 01:04:35

And it is what is meant and Allah knows best buy his words aluminum and chicken regime in

01:04:37--> 01:04:59

Gumina dumping, Allah only accepts from people who have Paco so what's the meaning of accept over here? Is it the meaning of acceptance of not accepting the hammer in terms of validity? Now here is talking about the virtue for it. Allah only accept and praises and rewards the people who are the most righteous, that's what it means. But even if they were not righteous, Allah will accept their deeds.

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

Just as validated, that's it, but not necessarily to praise them for what they've done now.

01:05:05--> 01:05:32

For this reason, the fear that the right acting first generations had for themselves from this idea was very strong. Now for they were afraid that they were not of the people who have Taqwa of Allah, from whom Allah accepts their actions now, now let's move to the next insha Allah Tala with the red tag, what he says, While Masada quotable Merrell haram

01:05:33--> 01:05:36

given sadaqa it's on page 160.

01:05:37--> 01:05:37

On the top

01:05:40--> 01:05:44

giving sadaqa ie Zakah or optional sadaqa.

01:05:46--> 01:06:06

With haram property is unacceptable, as is reported in Sahih, Muslim from Ibn Omar radula one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that prayer is not accepted without purity, nor sadaqa. From property acquired dishonestly.

01:06:07--> 01:07:12

There is in the two Sahai books from Abu Hurayrah will be alone, that the province of Allahu alayhi salam said, No one gives sadaqa from pure earnings and Allah only accepts that which is pure, but that the All Merciful takes it in his right hand. And amount of this was his margin subhanaw taala not in the Muslim of Imam Ahmed, Rama hula, there is from even Massoud radula one that the prophets Allah has said is slave of Allah, who earns property which is haram then spins out of it. So he can have blessings blessing in it or give sadaqa so it can be accepted from him or leaves it behind him, it will be His provision for the fire. Allah does not face evil with evil, but Allah effaces evil by

01:07:12--> 01:07:40

good that which is found does not face that which is found, which means like some people they say, if I have riba on my bank account, I have a bank account. It's a saving account, for example, and I have river that is occurring every month, or every year. What do I do with this river? I know it's a river, It's haram. So what do I do? Can I take that river out and give it to the masjid? Can I give it to the poor? Can I give it to a charity organization and so on? What is the answer The decision

01:07:42--> 01:07:47

is very clear, we don't do this. What do I do with it? First of all, you shouldn't be putting your money in a

01:07:48--> 01:08:29

savings account. If you can't put it in a checking account. You shouldn't be if you had to it that's a different story. But if you have an option, don't put your your money in an account that will cause riba to be collected. And so only rebar as a result of that. Obviously, if you don't have to put it in a bank account to begin with, that's even better. But unfortunately it is now Muhammad Bilbo this fitna and trial is is very common. Unfortunately, it's hard to avoid. So as a result, we tried to do the minimum in that in that regard. So making sure that if luck or that Allah an urn of haram comes your way, one way or another, that you don't try to put it to kind of get rid of it in a

01:08:29--> 01:09:06

way that you expect reward for it or halal, straight, anything that good that comes out. You should always try to get rid of it. What do we do with this money? Send it to the Minister for work, for example, parks or recreation or something like that, that doesn't have to be come to the to the magic, because I know some people they say I'll go to Costco or Sam's Club, I would buy bathroom tissues, for example. Yeah, why don't need your money for the magic. No matter what you're buying with it. Keep this away from the massage and from the from the high from the top especially don't give that rebar money that would go into people's food or drink or clothes. Even if it was actually

01:09:06--> 01:09:09

for the poor. That's very important. We start with avoid these issues in shallow data.

01:09:12--> 01:09:20

It is let's move on to the next point right now to that to the next point where it says if you go down says huduma. The second aspect? Yes, go ahead.

01:09:22--> 01:09:35

The second is not a second. I'm sorry. It's actually a number it's on 161 1621 It says huduma the first one first, yes first first, that the one who is acquainted

01:09:37--> 01:09:59

who has acquired it deceitfully all by force, etc. pays it as Celica, on on behalf of himself. What does it mean here he says look when it comes to given charity from a haram money, it's one of two scenarios. Number one a person gives that charity on his behalf. Like he stole something and now much has given to them as well.

01:10:00--> 01:10:12

He earned something haram and now he wants to give this as a as a donation to the masjid, for example. So what does this person expect for his donation reward? So what is your saying here is you're gonna get reward or not.

01:10:13--> 01:10:51

This is what is meant in this hadith that is not accepted from him, meaning that he is not rewarded for it. Rather, he is guilty of transacting with someone else else's property without their permission. Because of course, when you steal money, and you're gonna give it to charity, what happened here? You're trying to give charity on behalf of somebody else. That's not your money. It's their money. So now the question is, what about the original owner of that wealth and and money? If you give that charity, with the intention on behalf of this individual, for example, are they gonna get the word or not? That's actually the second one's gonna be the second one. Now.

01:10:52--> 01:11:09

The true owner does not gain a reward because he had neither purpose nor intention. Let's move right now to the second point. Second point, which is on page 163. The second aspect of the transactions in the middle

01:11:11--> 01:11:19

of an exposure, expropriate, expropriate, expropriated

01:11:20--> 01:11:42

with the property of someone from whom he took it, is that he should give it away as sovereign on behalf of its owner, if he is unable to return it to him or his heirs. This is permissible. According to the majority of the people of knowledge, Malik,

01:11:43--> 01:12:19

Abu Hanifa, Achmed, and others. What is that a gentleman, he says that look, if someone, for example, committed that sin before, and now they're regretful, they want to get rid of this money, they can't have access to the original owner, because a long time ago, and he cannot have access to the heirs of that individual they don't want his children were whose family it's all gone somewhere else. And this person wants to get rid of this money by giving charity on behalf of the original owner, would that be acceptable or not? Like I repent Allah subhanaw taala I want to give the hack of this human back to them, I can have access to them. So in this case, I will do my best but then

01:12:19--> 01:12:43

this guy will give it as a charity. Will that individual get reward for that charity? The two things right now, the first man who's repenting when he gives that charity is you're gonna get reward for giving that charity from this money? The answer is actually they say No, he doesn't get anything. Because he's not doing any any good or any favor for this man. What are you doing? Exactly? He's basically kind of like good reading of the of the Haram he had on his on his

01:12:44--> 01:13:06

account. But what about the original owner? The original owner? Will this original owner get reward for that? That's the argument that the question because the majority the argument, they say, yes, the original owner won't get the reward. But if at some point, the origin origin shows up, all you discover you find some of their errors, for example, and you come to them says, look, hey, man,

01:13:07--> 01:13:30

I owe your dad $20,000. From the past. Unfortunately, I couldn't catch him before he passed. But I eventually gave a donation to them as well. So it's your choice. They have the option to say, You know what, we'll keep this charity for my dad. Or they say no, we need the money. If they say they need the money, what do you do in this case, you give them the money.

01:13:31--> 01:13:49

But I don't have it right now in my hand, I gave it to charity. You owe it to them, because that's their heart and you need to owe it to them. Okay, next, let's move on to the next point in sha Allah on page 164. This is going to talk about right now some of the etiquettes of a DUA, the author continues his words.

01:13:50--> 01:14:00

And then he mentioned a detailed dusty man, lengthening his journey and stretching out his hands to the sky. Lord, My Lord,

01:14:01--> 01:14:51

Lord, Lord, and his food is haram. His drink is haram, his clothing, haram and he has been fed on the haram. So how can he be answered? There are words in which he sort of indicated the courtesies of supplication and the causes which lead to it's being answered, and those which prevent it's being answered. He mentioned four of those causes, which require that the supplication is answered. I'm going to actually say we're going to take it to me quickly for the sake of time inshallah Darla, I'm going to mention them to you and show the first one it says Call your thorough to suffer for as admin, long travel. So one of the means have to be accepted when you are on a journey. If you

01:14:51--> 01:15:00

travel, you have a high possibility of your data to be accepted, a higher possibility for the driver of the traveler to be at

01:15:00--> 01:15:37

So whenever you're on a journey, make sure to raise your hands in the chat and ask ALLAH SubhanA for the best of the dunya and the ACA. That's the first one. The second one, he says, and it's on page 165. On the top, he goes, the second is being unkept with respect to one's clothings. Of course, outward from from being disheveled. What does it mean? He goes a Tibetan means showing humility and humbleness. Because the proverb spoke about this man being humble being you know, the shovel and dirt and so on. That means that you deliberately go and you throw yourself and felt and start making dua. Rather when you make your DUA, you do it with humbleness and humility. You show humbleness,

01:15:37--> 01:16:19

humility, you basically expose yourself to Allah subhanaw taala with the vulnerability that's what it means. You don't come to Allah as I'm making dua of the of the self sufficient, or the arrogant, like many people sometimes make dua and they act arrogant with ALLAH SubhanA wa like, Oh my God, you're gonna give it to me. I'm fine with that. You don't hamdulillah that's not how you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala you show humbleness and humility. Then on the third point, which you mentioned, Rahim Allah Allah, it is actually says call my god Allah sama that to raise your hand and that's also on page 165 in the middle because that you stretch the hands towards the sky. In that

01:16:19--> 01:16:57

chapter, he spoke about two different styles one style when you have the you face your hands up to the sky when you need something from Allah Subhana Allah so you're up to give me this Arabic Give me that. And he said the professor did it in different occasions and he mentioned this occasion in the chapter over here. So that's an evidence that yes, it is okay to raise your hand when you make that also, he said the professor was and sometimes he was actually would point to the scar with his index finger. When he makes that you're, you're making the Allahumma Yola deal with the jawline and with that, so extending his index finger to the sky, that's one way of doing it as well to another way

01:16:57--> 01:17:05

the professor will make dua when he does empty hand. An empty hand means when you praise Allah azza wa jal he goes sometimes he actually he flipped his hands the other way around.

01:17:06--> 01:17:21

So he basically puts his hands face in the ground as you said, Allahu Allah could have got Allah all praises due to your Allah Yoda. The Almighty Rama and Rahim is present his names. Once you start asking, he comes his hand to receive His mercy.

01:17:22--> 01:17:33

Once he says your Allah give me this give me that then he flips his hand over and he says making his dua and as Rama so that's what he's speaking about. In this chapter, Rahim Allah Allah. And then after that on page

01:17:36--> 01:17:54

later on on page 166, he talks about number four, and that's number four when he says Rahim Allah to Allah, but Allah Allahu Allah, Allah He with Turkey towards the end to the bottom of the page, because that you insist by keep repeating over and over again over and over again. Keep repeating that your need to Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:17:56--> 01:18:03

Allah azza wa jal, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala he will not stop listening to you and answer you as long as you continue ask him for him.

01:18:05--> 01:18:07

Humans when you ask twice, three times they stop it.

01:18:09--> 01:18:48

Allah subhanaw taala he says more and more of this so you keep asking Allah and repeat your data ALLAH SubhanA wa Allah may Allah azza wa jal accept from all of your Bananaman. The last thing Rahim Allah Tala, he's mentioning in his book, which is on page 168. Towards the end, he says, As for which prevents the supplication you notice there was the middle of the middle of the end actually, as for that which prevents publication from being answered, while there was awful haram, a person living a lavish life and haram, indulging into the Haram, having absolutely no regard to that which is right and that which is wrong, he says, Absolutely not. Stay away from the Haram because doing

01:18:48--> 01:18:55

this and living the life of haram will prevent a person from the to be accepted. Here's now the last point he says Lisa, sorry, Hank, is the house

01:18:57--> 01:19:35

listed Java? When the Prophet said that unknown unknowns Taboola? How is that will be answered? It's not like the DA will never be answered. But the possibility of the DA to be answered becomes less and less like Allah sometimes he answered the DA even under the circumstances, he will still answer the DA out of his Rama out of His mercy, not because they deserve it. Now Allah Subhana watermakers among those who are deserving of acceptance of our da era, Allah mean, and make us among those who always observed the halal and their life era. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us among those who dies except to the Allah. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to fill our hearts with love and mercy

01:19:35--> 01:19:39

for each other a little bit on me when hamdulillah Salam Muhammad Mata early use of your cinema ceremony
