Alhamdulillah Allah Allah salAllahu Salam wa barakaatuh Vienna Muhammad and while earlier Savio salam to Sleeman Kathira to my mother, I welcome you back and show to the soil class. We're reading right now, the final part of the final part and a final portion from the first of the first quarter of Mustafa Menaggio Cassadine by Imam Ibn Kodama Rahim Allah Allahu Allah Allah. If you guys remember for the last few few nights will be this old weeks as a matter of fact, we were studying the etiquettes of the night prayers. And now when shall our data will come into the last part of it, in which you discussing few things regarding the virtue of the night and also what else? What can
you do if you couldn't do any of these Ibadat or practices that we discussed last time? So inshallah we're going to start with Section Three those who find purification difficult at night Smilla
Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, even for the AMA Rahim Allah writes, those who find purification difficult at night. If one finds it hard to purify himself at night and is praying and praying is burdensome, he should sit towards the tip. Look, remember Allah was high and supplicate to the best of his ability. If he does not sit he should supplicate lying down.
If a person has a regular set portion that he observes and he misses it due to being overcome by sleep,
he should perform it after
four noon prayers lotto ahaadeeth has been narrated about this you have a lot of banana means that Allah was gonna be on Muhammad Javad. So, the Imam even Kodama mo lottery says, Look, we talked about the word of the night how you should divide your night, how you should divide your ibadah. And in which category would you fall? Are you a alum, a scholar? Are you a student of knowledge or just a worshiper? What type of person you are and what type of data you need to fill your night with? Then he goes if you couldn't do any of these things, if somebody wanted to do a bed at night, but it's so hard for them, now, he find it hard to purify himself at night. What could that be for
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Gemma, this is under the assumption that they live that we live like they used to live before. Which means when you wake up at night to del hamdulillah when they wake up at night, what do you do, you walk straight to the bathroom, mashallah the water is ready, everything is easy for you, you will make will do you take a shower of wanted five seconds, and you're done and ready for the rabada. But back then, obviously, if you wake up at night to do it, but they didn't have what we call them. They don't have bathrooms, like we have today. Many of them they had a balcony, which is something outside of their houses. Few people had the luxury of having
the bathroom actually to be inside their houses unless you live in the urban area. In cities, they're back in the days, obviously, with that being said to make will do is going to be not so easy. And even if you have the water available handle a lot of grime, and if it was at night, and it was winter, then what you need to do warm up the water, get yourself ready for it. So there was a lot of work just to do the night Ayurveda and that Hamdulillah we have it all easy.
We have it all easy. And the only that you need to do is just to do at the gym or just to get up
just to get up, that is the most difficult thing becoming for us. So Hannah,
and for them, the situation was much harder. So he says look, if you couldn't make that we'll do um taharah you're unable, whether because it's too cold, or you don't have the water available, or just too tired even to do that, since at least what you need to do at least. Then sit down facing the Qibla just sit down facing the Qibla and start remembering Allah subhanaw taala law you don't have to make Salah at night if you couldn't at least sit down facing the Qibla and make your ticket and make Revita now do you have to face the Qibla? No. Can I just sit down in my bed even if my bed is facing different direction and just make medical while I'm sitting on my bed? The answer is yes you
can do that. But the idea is that you dedicate some time at night for Ibadah whichever that is he does well at Omaha marcada make dua as much as you can. He says that if you couldn't even do that you're unable to sit down because we're fatigued, tired circumstances to call whatever that is. He says Allah Khalid Mohammed Tada. Then make dua even if you're on your side, even if you're on your side because that was mentioned actually in the Hadith Hadith interview salatu salam, in which he commanded to pray kala salah, call him and anesthetize Amara Hasina the Allah Randhawa called Salah call em and instapot pray one standing if you can fail the Muslim test for Gaiden if you couldn't do
it while standing then pray what you see it kind of fell into Stata. If you couldn't do that either. Then at least on your side, Allah jump to Allah gem and Allah subhanho wa Taala one he praised the believers and above the rock
Manna Motoki and what did they say about them?
The Jaffa genome and Medallia or they couldn't leave their beds or their sides actually on the mattresses and also Allah had talked about the mud you had on rock bottom and all their efforts they am avacado Allah dubium they call it the Lord Subhana wa Tada making dua making Likud while they're standing while they're seated while underside, you clear my work order while generally but whatever current we have to send our children reflecting on Allah's creation Obama had after heard about it and making dantas be handcar our Lord, You have not created all of this in vain. So he says that look, you have no excuse.
You have no excuse not to engage in a bother in daycare at night in whichever capacity that you can. So don't say I cannot stand for Salah if you couldn't then at least do it while you're in your bed. Whichever they could that you can afford the short Don't be Nila Azerbaijan then he says woman Carla who are available who know if you had word which means if you have the the tradition of praying at night Hamdulillah you maintained every night or every other night maybe you maintain four raka or six rock or even to raka but then one of those nights you're overwhelmed, over slept fatigued so you couldn't do it and you did not pray or tahajjud for that night. Hall of Alia TV badda Serato Doha
then this person should bring that that word after sort of Doha, what does that mean? Sometimes in the morning between Fajr between the sunrise between the sunrise and the whole time or the world that is the time when you make up for 200 If you missed it, so if you have that tradition to do to Raka and you miss them overslept, or have you had that tradition to do for Raka then you can still do these records Inshallah, in the morning, you can do that. Now do recite like you do it in tahajjud, meaning out loud and you recite it over long. It's up to you salatu salam ala Maha the night, the day prayer usually is done silently. It's the night whether we do it actually out loud.
So therefore you could recite your night prayer during the day, but quietly for yourself just to hear it in sha Allah, Allah Allah and that should be sufficient when Allah has already said there was a hadith that was mentioned this that which he refers to how did I show the answer Muslim, in which she said the Prophet SAW Selim Canada for that was salam and Elena been watching already? If the Prophet SAW Selim missed his night prayer, so that was the last Ramallah call it kind of salami de vida, Salam and in the heart, he would pray during the day is Natasha Tanaka 12 vaca which is what he used to do during the night 11 raka he will do 11 o'clock at night. So during the day, he
makes them actually 12 Why because you cannot pray water during the day. So he adds an extra raka for that water raka also, there's another Hadith Hadith of the loving hombre de la Khaled actually Rama Rhodiola Anuradha that he specifically mentioned the time for those two Abraca he said Cara mana man has been a one shaman if you oversleep and you missed your word for Cara or female by Anna Salah till February was allotted or Serato and you do that between Fajr Salah under which means we after sunrise and between the word Salah so that's the best time for you to make up for those days. Or those Ricard What if I miss that time? I remember after that I miss Mahajan. Oh, I didn't pray my
water for example. Can I pray it after the whole right now? I mean, the hadith is specific about when so you missed it already. And if you want to pray, you can still pray but it wouldn't count that you made up actually for the most part of the night Salah and then I pray Allah
if one has a habit of praying at night, let him be aware of leaving it. It occurs in the 270s that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi salam told Abdullah even I'm really one who do not be like so and so he used to stand at night and then start standing at night. Now. So here this is from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not a warning, but an instruction to be aware of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he suggested for us look if you started ninth period, don't stop it. Do not stop your night prayers.
The professor Samuel Sterling Abdullah Mohammed, I'm gonna ask for the love to Anwar da Yeah, Abdullah Lata could miss La Funan Don't be like this person. Can I put them in a lane photonic of Korea Malay he used to pray from the night verse 200. And he stopped. Now let's understand the context here a little bit. Why would the prophets of Assam tell Abdullah Mohammed last Don't be like full on? I mean, Allah Subhan protector Surah Brahman Can you imagine who that Firaon was the prophet says I'm saying he used to pray and he stopped Allah that will be embarrassing alumnus time if the name was published. He said don't be like Fran used to pay to hedge it but he stopped. Why
would the professor I'm telling Abdullah Mohammed have amassed this icdi Anyone knows what's the reason why that instruction was given to Abdullah Mohammed last.
He used to pray almost every single night and he would pray a lot that a person was concerned for him. He says Abdullah says too much
Take it easy on yourself. Don't be like so and so used to pay the 100. But eventually he wasn't able to continue because it was too much. And he used to fast even actually a lot almost every day. And the Prophet told him take it easy on yourself. You can do this. He used to finish the Quran, Khartoum, the Quran, how many times every day, Mohammed Ali, this takes him to visit him. Almost every night. He used to do that. And the promises of Xena you can do this, finish it in one month. God, Ursula I can do better than this. It was okay, fine. And seven days, Tara so I can do better than this. Because Okay, three nights. Because I can do better than that. The professor said,
There's nothing better than this.
If you're going to do it less than three days, you will be just kind of like, don't you want to understand the word from what you're deciding. So Abdullah, and I'm not gonna ask, should we understand the context of why the Prophet said, don't be like, hold on for that. So the purpose I'm just telling him to take it easy on himself. Because I know some people they say when they heard this highly, they said, Does that mean I shouldn't be starting to hedge it. Because I know myself I might quit. Yeah. And soon after that, the Hello Lakota look,
the hammer, how our aspiration is the word level understand that like I'm afraid to start a quest I better not to start from the beginning and ledger man do it. Do as much as you can shout out and start light. Start maybe one night a week, then you go to two nights a week, maybe it's three nights a week. And when you start don't go with a tracker altogether if you cannot start with Touriga then add to Morocco then slowly and gradually until you become Marshall Allison and you do all the relevant records in the best way possible handle a lot of blindman but easy, do it easy until it becomes inshallah Tara of your tradition for Salah delay, but don't use this hadith to discourage
yourself from saying okay, so the province warned us if you start something you have to continue, then I know myself, I'm not going to have to do that. No, no, no, don't use this against yourself. This is because he used to do too much that the professor had to tell them take it easy on yourself. And by the way, Abdullah hamdulillah as
he took the advice of the prophets, Allah Salam in regard to the Quran, the Quran, okay, every three night ones. But when it comes to fasting, he could didn't do the first of that, who that is Salam, which is every other night, every other day, every other day. And when he became old, he was reflecting on those, that conversation with the Prophet Salla Sam and he was regretting because I wish I was, I wish I heard listen to the Prophet Salla ceremony when he told me so because because at that age, in his old age, his body became completely fragile. And Yanni, it couldn't stand for 200. He goes, I can't do this anymore. So in old age, he was unable to fast, he was unable to stand
up for 200 SubhanAllah. Why because obviously, it was it was too much during during his young young age, that has Oh, in his old age was unable to continue with that. So moderately is very important. If you can do every now and then the fasting of the food like every other day for a month or two hamdulillah that's great. Then you do Mondays and Thursdays, then maybe you take a break and do just the three days of MLB the middle days of every month, you alternate. And same thing with that to hedge it as well too. You do maybe three, four nights, you go to one night, maybe one night longer than usual. And then the other nights may be shorter. So as much as you can, but you're gonna have
to create a way of using part of the night for a bite and for remember my dear brothers and sisters, frankly, all what we learned over here. If that doesn't translate in the way you practice your day and your night, then we're not benefited much from this. It's not just about you being a handler, Salah and good meaning learning that it's about also becoming a muslim, which means transfer that knowledge to others in shallow data to your practice and teaching other people wouldn't lie ourselves and now
section for the most virtuous days and nights with respect to the nights of special virtue that are recommended to be spent in prayer. There are 15 such nights the student of the path should not be unmindful of them. After all, if a merchant is unmindful of the profit season, then when will he profit.
Some seven of these nights occurred in Ramadan, the 17th night in the morning of which occurred the Battle of better and the six odd nights of the last 10 nights during which the Night of Power Leah Leah brother is sought.
The other nights are the first night of Muharram the night of Ashura the first night of Raju, and the night in the middle of the of Rajab, the 27th Night of Raja which is the night of the Mirage and the night in the middle of Shaban the night of autofocus, and then the Knights of the two feeds. These are narrow there are narrations and mentioned prayers for some of these knights but none of them are authentic. Did you guys hear that? I went until Daniel
To finish it all together, because I know some of you might say, Oh my God, I didn't know about these virtues. Well, what we need to understand here first and foremost, when it comes to the virtues of the days and nights, who is the one who dedicates a day to be virtuous or not to be virtuous? Who is responsible? Does that? Allah subhanaw taala? What makes this day more virtuous than the other day?
That Divine selection, no more?
Why Allah Subhana Allah made Maccha made Mecca the most sacred spot on earth to choose his house Aqaba to be their Divine selection. Why would Allah subhanho wa Taala call that land and forest in a holy land, sacred land? Same thing Divine selection. So there is no other land on Earth that is considered divinely selected or sacred unless it has been chosen and being selected by ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. Nowadays, unfortunately, we've seen some Muslim communities, some Muslim countries, what do they do, they have a family or a scholar or RM or some, whatever they call them in terms of their status and religion. When they die, they bury them and they create a shrine on top of that, that
grave and they call that place a sacred place. And they start doing a lot of worship that's supposed to be dedicated to Allah subhana wa Tada who said that that spot and that shrine is actually virtuous, who said that? Who gave the people authority to claim that if you make your Salah near that place, or if you make your DUA near that place, if you give charity to this place, it has a better chance to be answered and be fulfilled who said that? So there is no such thing in our deen Islam came to even to abolish these things matter of fact completely. So unless it has been dedicated by the Quran or the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we don't give any time or any
place any virtual. So what are these now times are considered virtuous? So Imam Imam Raja Rahim Allah Ameen Imam Ibn Kodama, Rahim Allah, He is summarized here what he had taken from the book of no Josie, who took it from the book of Imam Al Ghazali Rahim Allah Tala and good Kotoko by Imam Abu Talib in Mackay. He said there are few nights that we didn't need to focus on. Seven of these nights occur in Ramadan. And he mentioned that the 70s night in the morning of which occurred the Battle of better
now, that's not there is no sunnah from the Prophet Salah Sam to say the night of the Battle of better is a virtuous night. So you need to make special rebuy the Alta for it, it's a special day. It's a special occasion there is no doubt about it. Allah mentioned the Quran as being useful for con the day for criteria so it's different the virtuous day on the battlefield on that day, but commemorating it with a special EVA or TA it was not practiced by the Prophet sallallahu wasallam even though he lived eight years after that Salalah Salam but he never made any special occasion for that so we can't say that there's actually a virtue for them that's in that sense. The six odd
nights of the last night during which the night Takada and that's obviously it's spoken by the prophet Salah Sam there is no doubt these nights are the most virtuous because later covered the Night of Power could be one of those nights. Then he said the eight other nights are the first night of Muharram now there is no evidence that the first night of Muharram is special and virtuous, but Al Muharram itself as a month, the first month of the lunar calendar is actually is a sacred month as Allah subhana dedicated that in sort of a Tober and the Prophet sasm explained these four months, men Harbottle Honda four months are considered sacred months. What are these month, Mahara? The
three continuous one, the Qaeda, the hedger, Al Mahara, and then we have Roger, and we are in Raja, which is one of these sacred mines. So yes, in terms of the month itself, but not that particular night, the night of Ashura? Now, I don't know about the night of Ashura, but Where's where's the virtual village Emma isn't the night or the day, the day? So what do you do on that on the day of Ashura? We fast so that's the virtuous for it and what's the virtue for Ashura?
What is a special virtue? Why does this there was virtuous day?
Because Allah subhana wa said most artists that I'm from surround so that's why they was actually considered virtuous over then the first night of Rajab, same thing there is no evidence for that the night in the middle of Raja there is no actually special
definition for it. them and then he said the 27th Night of Raja Believe it or not, actually it is tonight, or it was maybe last night depends on the calendar. So which is why they consider this to be virtuous, because he said it was the night of a mirage shelters live events me Rahim Allah, Allah Allah mentioned that there is no proof or evidence in any of our tradition to say that this is was the night and month of Rajab was the month for that journey. And there was actually a debate among the AMA.
Which night is more virtuous? Laylatul Qadr or
Little mirage. What do you guys think?
little cuddle. more virtuous, older the Mirage.
So a little cuddle is of course Allah has spoke about in the Quran haram and alopecia better than 1000 months, right? Why? Because Allah revealed the Quran to the Prophet saw someone that special night, but what was later termed mirage? What is so special about Odin Mirage edema,
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what happened to the Prophet Salman that night, he was taken all the way up to the seventh heaven, to speak directly with who? His Creator Subhana wa Tada in a manner to His Majesty. How virtuous that occasion is, then,
is that great occasional knowledge man, you tell me, which is more virtuous to meet your Lord, or receive the revelation?
What do you guys think? To meet your Lord, or to receive the revelation? Which one is more virtuous? Now? See why it's confusing. That's why some of the Allama they say, look, a little cutter, yes, it's virtuous. But it's raw on Mirage, the prophet met his lords from Hannah Montana. So some of the Allameh they tried to kind of like reconcile that difference in said, Look, in terms of the believers, in terms of the believers, which night is virtuous for them?
I'll call them for us. Because what are you doing that led to whether you get the reward for the event and the worship? But in terms of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, which night was better for him? Probably a mirage.
Because he had to meet his Lord Subhanallah Donna, that's a very special occasion, as you might have seen the MBR and the prophets and I mean, there is no doubt about it. Obviously, there is no definitive answer to this dilemma. They just making speculation which one is which, like we said, as long as the virtue is coming from Allah subhanaw taala, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we take it by that. But here just an assumption is that Yeah, indeed, maybe a mirage was better for the Prophet Salah Salem because of the occasion of meeting with his Lord subhanho wa taala. But for us, let it to God, no doubt is more virtuous first for everybody that we are supposed
to practice on that night. Also the night in the middle of Shabbat, which is mentioned in a disputable Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu. Salah mentioned that on that night, ALLAH SubhanA wa Allah will forgive for everybody, Ill Michigan OSHA and except somebody who's worship other than Allah subhanho wa taala. Or some people have some sort of like grudge holding against each other. So that's why it's considered a virtuous night. Doesn't have to be the you have to have a special advisor for it. There is nothing from the Prophet sursum to dedicate at especially Vida on that particular night. What about the night of Arafah?
Is it the night of Arafa? Are the devil out of
this the devil out of not the night? Because the night will where will the hijab be anyway? Her judge what would it be on the night of our of the night of Arafah meaning it the night before? There'll be a minute getting ready for alpha, and then they spend the day so the virtue is actually for the day itself? There is no proof or evidence that the night has the exact same virtue and the 10 Nights of the two aids obviously. Now the same thing, the virtue isn't the day itself, the two aids although there's some debates among the Allama just like between El Mirage and little cuddle, they say which one is more virtuous? Yo, Mara, Oreo Manohar Yama, eight.
Which one is more virtuous today of Arafah. So the ninth day of the hedger, in which the Hedgehog was turned on Arafah, making that car under a burden. So on Oreo Manohar, the eighth day, the next day for the Hedgehog, which one is better for?
Now, that's where the debate is because some days Arafah is more virtuous. And why is that? Because the prophets as I mentioned, on that day, ALLAH forgive all these people. And Allah Subhana Allah showing the angels what are these people doing here? What do they want from me? So there's a lot of virtue in that day of Arafah there is no doubt about it.
But on the next day, what happens the Hedgehog is now engaged in so many different AI that some of them are slaughtered, and some of them are actually doing the toe off some or shaving some of them naked. There is a lot of diversity of a vida but definitely in the Hadith, it's very clear that the Prophet Salah Salem mentioned that the best day of the year Mila the best day for Allah Subhana Allah Allah or this to Allah azza wa jal from for us here is your Manohar and that is the Adel odd ha day that is the aid of Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to be the enemy. So he said there are narrations that mentioned prayers for some of these nights, but none of them
are authentic. So there is no specific Eva was proven without an authentic hadith in regard to these nights. And these days now, as for the virtuous days am Fertitta they are 90. The deal on the day of Ashura the 27th day of Raja, which is the first day Gibreel a Salam landed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the 27th day of Ramadan, which is the day of the Battle of Bethel.
of the day in the in the middle of Shaban Friday, the tour eats the known days which are the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. And the number of days which are the sunrise, these amo bother there's a mistake here it's the 27th day of Ramadan, which the day of battle a battle have actually seven teeth. Now that's only 717 so correct that a charlatan can go on some of the virtuous days of the week or Monday, Thursday, and the days of the white knights am and unburied. These are the days of the great virtue which has been mentioned in the chapters of the virtues of fasting. So in regards to the days we mentioned earlier, the Day of Arafah, the day of Ashura, and there's virtue the professor
mentioned the virtues of these by fasting these days, obviously, the 27th of Rajab, we said there is no really a specific generation to prove that at all. Same thing with the Battle of better historically speaking assets virtually from that perspective, the history of it, but in terms of requiring specific rebreather or liquid Now none of that actually is mentioned the seal of the prophets of Allah Salah Shaban overall, the Deaf Shaban we mentioned that they is the the night is more virtuous than the day itself. As for
for three days, there is no doubt there's a virtuous days that's where the prophet of Allah subhanaw forbearance from fasting on the first day of aid to keep him of course with that with the people, then there is the 10 days of the hedger hate of an ambassador la Nevada, the prophets. As I mentioned, there is no good deeds practice in any days of the year better than the standards of the hedger. So that's emission ISO here. And then we have also what we call them a Yamato
although they call them the sunrise days, actually, but Ash is the not sunrise days, at tertiary. Maybe we explained that many times before the meaning of tertiary, just to explain, and then you can choose the word for everyone to back in the days didn't have what we have to have technology at Hamdulillah, where you can have freezers and fridges and coolers when they slaughter the animals
and don't have to sit to save the meat from going bad. What they used to do, they used to do a specific procedure in which they cut the meat and they slice the meat kind of like shred the meat almost you could say, then put salt on it, and then spread it facing the sun.
And the sun comes from America from the east. What's that? What's the Arabic word for East a shark or MeasureUp. So that practice called tertiary.
But it was the shark the east. So that's why it these days were called IMO tertiary because the hedgehog will be busy making the meat ready. Before they leave Mina they go back home. So they call them a Yamato sheet for them to practice that. So it's not really about sunrise days. Rather, it's actually the practice of that was done in the MENA during the camp of Hajj. As for the virtues of different days. He said Monday and Thursday, what's the virtue of Monday's intelligent man, but especially about Mondays on Thursday, who can tell
you these going up to Allah subhanho wa Taala on day for every week, they they go up twice. So from Monday until Thursday, all these deeds, they go up on Thursday.
And then that is from Thursday until Monday, like the weekend basically goes on Monday. Right? So the professor was telling me so this is something for us. What did you suggest so Allah sent him first? Fast. So at least when you did are going up, at least they're going up when you're already engaged in a brother anyway, which by the first and that's the virtue of Mondays and Thursdays. And then
the days of aim will be the white knights, actually, although they called the White Knights but in Arabic they call a yarmulke, which means the white days referring to the night before obviously so that's why they're special because the professors have used to recommend that the first three days of every month, and specifically these days if you can shell out a barcode data. And finally
this is the end of the book of worship with Allah live success. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless her cerebral I mean with that and that is considered beneficial. Now I want to go first before we make a quick draw inshallah for this one Allah azza wa jal to remind you what we have been studying all this past year. If you guys go back to what you have been reading and studying, I hope that you already been practicing all of that because if you do today, you will be completely different person.
If you don't see yourself have changed since last night since last year from what when we started reading this book, you guys need to go back and read on your own and start putting into action. Just a reminder, Imam Al Ghazali Rahim Allah when he divided the book, an imam Kodama, you follow the same model. He divided the book to four chapters and four, you could say quarters, the first one raga la vida
At the quarter of river that means act of devotion act of worship, which was in English translated into the inner secret of worship. The second quarter was called rural and urban ADAT which means traditions and customs, which was translated into English as the refinement of character or the refinement of character. So that's actually the book that we're going to start next week and shallow Tabata cotana, the refinement of character, the third quarter coronial Malika, which is the quarter of Malika Malika means, you know, the destroys your Eman and your deen and your life. Why these are the bad habits and bad practices, which was translated to English language as discipline, the path
to spiritual growth discipline, the path to spiritual growth, and the fourth quarter was Oberman jihad. That's basically what rescued you from this molecule. And it was translated as the purification of the soul. What we covered in the first quarter Hamdulillah we started by speaking about lm a knowledge, the virtue of knowledge, the difference between being a scholar versus of the devotee and worship of Allah subhana wa taala. And we talked about the different types of LM and Allume a knowledge and we said that the most important aspect of knowledge, LM l Mamilla. Elmira, which is the basically these are now, the dealings, that the knowledge that reflect on the dealings
and your actions in terms of your beliefs, your your doings, and your abstinence from things, three things you mentioned that your garden will I'm gonna, what I'm gonna work, things that you believe in things that you do things that you abstain from, if you practice that, then you have that the best of the Allume knowledge. However, when he talked about the depth of that, what did he refer to what is the most important thing in regard to this actually, while the best the most important part of the room, he says Elmo, other one, I'll call clue. Like all of this should translate and put some change in your heart.
If that heart is not now shifting and changing to fit Allah subhanaw taala to look for the sake of Allah azza wa jal to always have hope and Allah subhanho wa Taala and so on. Like if your club is not really reflecting on this, then you're not very from that from that knowledge. So it's very important that we do that in shallow water that we talked about the advocates of the students of knowledge and the children the scholar as well. We spoke about taharah and its secrets Salah and its secrets occurrence etiquette, we spoke about fasting and Hajj as well we spoke about the Quran and the etiquette of the Quran and the people of the Quran then we talked about ADKAR the and if

Okay
this part of this hadith Hadith number 90 is very very important Subhanallah it's I believe,
you will see what Imam Raja mentioned about the squat I want you to pay attention to it. It speaks about the meaning of Qatar in a very profound way inshallah so let's we can discuss tonight inshallah Missoula.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. So, Hollywood Salem has seen some of our they will sell them, even if all of the people want to benefit you in some way which Allah has not decreed, they will not be able to do it. And if they want to harm you in some in some way, which Allah has not written against you, they will not be able to do it. It isn't the narration of the man but
the version of it tournament he is also this is also in the same sense and it means that everything which affects the slave of the world both harms him and what benefits him has been decreed for him and nothing affects the slave but which has been written for him beforehand and the predicted in the preceding decree Alhamdulillah blonde I mean, so Allah wa salam baraka and Amir Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama bad now I remember him Allah Allah comes 2.7 from the Hadith we remember we said that hadith actually divert to seven out of 11 Paul's not 12 Actually, and Rahim Allah Allah He mentioned in the sport in this part of the Hadith right now for
the light ordinary Salah Salem, low Anelka, Jimmy and Raja and Volker Bucha, Allah may Allah subhana wa Taala let me have the rally. If everybody wants to benefit you with in a way that Allah did not decreed for you, no matter what they do is not going to happen. And if they wanted to harm you, in a way that Allah did not allow did not decree for you, no matter what they try, they can never actually get it. Never. So what does that mean? He says, he says, this is now the moment when they add you as a servant of Allah subhana wa taala. Under understand that nothing happens to you that Allah doesn't know off and doesn't know about.
Which means if Allah knows about it, what does that mean from what we learned last time, that is Allah What allowed it?
Allah Subhana Allah did and if you know that Allah allows this to happen to you. And you know that He is the Most Merciful. He is a Rahim. He is Subhanallah for for the world. He is our dude al Hamid, all these beautiful names of Allah subhanaw taala reflect His mercy as Rama is love and His care all of these names. If you know that Allah subhana wa Taala who has all these beautiful names and attributes allow this to happen to you what does that mean? What do you need to do then?
Except that Allah knows about it. Now accepting it does not mean not to try to change it. Because you you are allowed to use the color of Allah subhanaw taala to change the other color of Allah subhanho wa Taala but I know that if it happened to me, that could be the last panel and that helps people when they go through difficulties. Because when something happens to them, the first thing that comes out of their mouth is what Alhamdulillah has been alone admiralty law, however Lakota level in that Allah, we're in the La La Jolla, he mentioned last week when we talked about the meaning of inner Allah He was in LA he was your own as well too. So this is very important for us to
remember and keep an open mind if if it happened. Then Allah Subhana Allah decreed. And it is not happening. No matter how much I'm pursuing this, no matter how much I tried, if it didn't happen, what does that mean? Allah has the wisdom and that wisdom that I shouldn't get this so therefore I'm not going to kill myself for it. I will just do my best and move on because Allah has a bit of shallow data plan for me now.
No Quran shows the same as this in his words will they use even I learned when I get up Allah will Anna. See nothing can happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. And in his words, nothing occurs either in the either in the earth or in yourselves without without its being in a book before we make it happen. And in his words, before we get to this one, I want you to remember that this means what color usuba Illa Macatawa hola hola. And nothing is going to afflict us or it happened to us except that Allah has ordained that for us. That Ordinance of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is an era that Allah allowed it again. Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala but does he commands necessary commands
everything for you to do it? Not necessarily like what? So if someone is not praying, and you come and tell them Look, why don't you pray, said look, Allah Allah is this for me?
Allah Allah is Mr. If Allah wants me to pray, I will pray. Can we accept this argument from them? We can't, because Allah Allah with what people to pray, and otherwise and then give them an option of the choice. But then he is sent the MBR and the prophets and the Quran and the Sunnah of the veranda Allama to do what to command them to do to do what we call
of the circle of the command, if you remember we have the sacred allowed, which has everything in it. And we have the circle of the command, the small one. So if those who say, Well, if Allah wants me to pray, he would actually allow me to pray. No, he allowed you to pray, and allowed you not to pray.
You chose not to pray, so that you're doing, not ALLAH SubhanA doing for you. Because you had also the allowance of praying. And that's where the command comes for you to practice and to do I just wanna make sure that we understand the meaning of the ayah when he says that everything has been ordained for us, or then in terms of allowed, but there's a command to practice and you've been given the choice to do that. And if you don't, you're still allowed to do the other thing that Allah doesn't like Subhanallah doesn't love none.
And in his words below, quantum feeble ut Coronavirus, Allah the iniquity barely human for tuina magaji him. So even if you have even if you have been inside your homes, those people for whom killing was decreed would have gone out to their place of death. Even after I narrated the Hadith, I would go to the Rhodiola horn, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said everything has an essential reality and the slave will not attain the essential reality of Eman until he knows what that what that what happens to him Can I miss them and what has passed him by and what passes him by could not have happened to him. So if you understand the meaning of this is very profound. He's
going to explain in the next paragraph that he said this is the basically he said this is the summary of this hadith. And that is the most important point that you need to understand if you reach that level of iman that no matter what happens to you, you realize Allah allows it but again doesn't mean that he commands it Allah just allows it it puts you at ease cuz I haven't done anything wrong like I've been I'm praying and fasting I'm giving my Zika I'm doing my good deeds and Hamdulillah I don't do haram Mustapha and so on. So Allah still test you with difficulties with hardships. Don't start question Allah subhanaw taala
some people are the other way around. They're doing everything that is considered sinful and it's dinner, lunchtime, and you look at them, they're having a blast in this world. And just like, look at it, why are they just enjoying that one? Why can I have that same thing? You know, don't even try to judge ALLAH SubhanA Escada. Allah says hikma and his wisdom subhanho wa taala. No,
no know that the pivot of all this counsel is this room matter. And that was mentioned before and after and after our like branches and derivatives of it which which returned back to it. Because when the slave knows that nothing happens except except what Allah has decreed it decreed for him, whether they're good or bad of benefit or harm, and that all peoples exertions and are in opposition to that which is decreed which is decreed decidedly will be of no use, then he will know at that time that Allah alone is the one to cause harm or benefit, who gives and who refuses. So therefore, I want you to mark this paragraph on your book, because one of the most important paragraph that you
really need to understand for this hadith, and for life,
if you really start taking this, you know, into your heart, and understanding it properly, this will change so much for you in regard to what you go through, whether it's in your marriage, with your children, with work with what's happened in the world, all these things, you will have a complete different perspective on life. Because the hadith is very clear on the subject, what we mean what he means here, what's been talking about. And then I want to emphasize this again, if you come to this level of iman, and understand that nothing happens, except that ALLAH allows it to happen. Again, not that Allah Subhan loves it to happen, he allows it to happen. And there's hekman wisdom. So
therefore I need to accept after putting all my energy and putting that taken the ASVAB and the means to acquire the right thing. If it doesn't happen, then hamdulillah and if it happens also hamdulillah and if I do everything right, and I still Allah's Qatar and decreed for me to have something completely opposite what I've been trying to achieve, then I would say still Alhamdulillah as well too because Allah has better plan for me Inshallah, with a barcode that this is actually he says, This is extremely important because everything in the Hadith revolves around this point now
that requires that the slave knows his Lord, Lord to be one has no agenda he obeys only him and protects his limits, since by worshipping the one who is worshipped one only means to gain things of benefit to repel harm. It is for this reason that Allah blames the one who worship or other to worship those who can benefit them or do them harm and cannot enrich them their worship or is in any way. Someone who knows that only Allah benefits and harms and gives and prevents, then that requires him to fear, hope for love and ask from humble himself to and supplicate only him and to give preference to his obedience over showing obedience to all people. And he must protect himself from
his wrath by his Taqwa. Even if by that you were he worked to enrage everyone else and he must
And he must seek help from him alone and ask Him alone and recency or to him in his applications and difficulties in his comfort and in an uncomfortable situations, circumstances, as as opposed to the idolaters who are who are sincere and supplication to him in difficult circumstances, but forget him in comfortable circumstances and supplicate those apart from him, from whom they are they hope for benefit Allah azza wa jal says, to matter their own me and doing Allah He and narodni Allah will be doing one Nikka Shiva to do our all in Ybor Ramadan Holy hell Han naman scatterometer will has to be a law are they here to work no matter what you do and
say what do you think if Allah desires harm for me? Can those you will call upon besides alarm of his harm?
Or if he desires mercy for me, can they withhold His mercy? Say Allah is enough is enough for me and all those who truly put their trust in Him.
All those who truly trust put their trust in so what he says Rahim Allah today just look, the believers, it doesn't matter what they go through, whether it's time of prosperity, terms of ease, terms of hamdulillah and goodness, our dam of hardship and difficulty they always accept that from Allah subhanho wa taala. As for the most routine or non believers a week with the man they only accept that in terms of ease and prosperity in terms of difficulty, they now start questioning Allah subhanho wa Taala and they tried to oppose the color of Allah azza wa jal for them and deny even that Allah has the right to do this to them. Because it's God's pinata, so don't emulate the machete
and that will fall who only remember Allah Subhana Allah accept that during good times. Be careful with that. Now, point number eight
seeing so while you seldom know that there is much good and patiently enduring that which is what you dislike, means when the slave is patient or those painful afflictions which happened to him and which were decreed for him that there's a great deal of good for him in patients. Do you remember we talked about last time in regards to how much we pay? How do you measure patients? Do you guys remember, when you measure something big, you use what tons right? As as the unit starts getting smaller because now the value is actually becomes higher? Because you're not gonna right now measure cheese by tongs? You measured by answers for example, right especially good cheese. And then with
diamond, you're not gonna measure diamond by tons. I don't know if you can find even much any diamonds to begin with. But you're gonna measure it by what the least amount is that has its value. But then when it comes to good deeds, what Allah subhana wa Taala is measuring the good deeds with what
bedarra Like that the speck of a dust this this much of good deeds will not go to waste, you're gonna get your word for it. When it comes to patience, what was it? What was the measurement unit that ALLAH SubhanA use for it?
There wasn't an IT. Why is that? Because it's priceless.
You can't put a price tag on patients. You cannot put price tag on patient this is the value of being patient and if people just understand this will lie they make their marriages good. The relationship with their families, their parents, their in laws, their children themselves with ALLAH SubhanA whatever the whole world, they make it good because they just have one of those amazing qualities of faces and hear the prophets also mentioned the Hadith to Allah unnecessarily Allah ma chakra Hadron Kathira Be aware that if you show patients, if you show patients in regard to the matter that you hate and you dislike, you will find so much higher and so much goodness from just
showing patients now,
in another narration from Omar, the molar or from from others from Ivanov bass, there is another extra passage before these words which is if you are able to act for the sake of Allah with contentment and certainty, then do so if you are not able then instead fastness under under that what you dislike there is a great deal of good you remember Raja Rahim Allah is going to be actually explaining this in more details in the next few paragraphs. He says that there are different degrees on how people react to these hardships and difficulties and trials. And even pay him Rahim Allah and other activists books mashallah he explained that more details and a more beautiful way. He says
when it comes to people when it comes to people, what their reaction to what they go through is for what they're trying to gain he akin uncertainty. They want to be in control basically of their affairs so they can feel better and feel good about it. However, if they don't have that yet in their reply, in one of these four categories, the first category at the socket, like when someone is tested with something, lost their job or something happened to them that URL or the lab testing or something. Now the server they're there in a moment of an anxiety they are clean is gone. They're scared. So how do they react to it number one at the socket, which means they start now whining
about it, and deny and rejecting it. And they kind of like they want the whole world to
hear about this? Why this why me? Oh my god this is that fair. There's all these kind of words that would say that they are not accepting Allah's Kedah that the socket that degree is haram.
You can't deny ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has right to decree whatever he was the second category or sub to show patience, which is going to explain inshallah right now. So patience means what? Your actions, your actions are acceptable. Well, Allah subhanho wa taala. So what does that mean? You zip it? You don't say anything?
And you don't act, you know irrationally, as a result of that? Doesn't mean you have to accept it in your heart. No,
I hate it. I don't like what I'm going through. I don't. But you know what, I'm not gonna say anything just to displease Allah subhanaw taala. That is patience.
Now, that's patience. He said this is the bare minimum. And that's an obligation upon the believer. Then comes the third level. What is that third level? A river?
A river, which means to have that contentment. How is that different from from patience? Patience, is actually is the reflect and the actions. Radar contentment, reflection of what the heart, like my heart is at ease with it is not just like I'm being patient, meaning I'm not saying anything bad or I'm not actually doing anything. Anything wrong. No. My heart is at ease with it. Like I'm okay. I'm okay.
So when people see them, how are you feeling? handler good. I'm good. Like they're genuinely the god feeling good because they're at ease with Allah subhanho SCADA and they have that radar. Why? Because they are having they are clean. They have in the certainty, then Allah subhanaw Does decree that I know Allah has hikma for me in this, so I trust Allah's judgment. I trust Allah's wisdom. So I'm at ease with that, because this is recommended for the believer.
The fourth category, wow, is there has been something better than that.
What's better than just accepting it and be content with a regimen called a shocker
to show gratitude,
to show gratitude. Wow, even gratitude against atrocities, or trends, trials and difficulties? Of course. And how is your gratitude in many different ways? The least is by saying what Alhamdulillah I don't know if you remember what I mentioned here as well. When you ask people about somebody something and they laugh, they say, yeah, how you doing this? Alhamdulillah I cannot complain.
I said you owe the complaint.
The moment you say I cannot complain you're implying something.
But if you really believe that Hamdulillah I can't complain about anything, then how you should end your statement. Alhamdulillah No, seriously serious. hamdulillah I'm really hamdullah happy with Allah's judgment for me. But you know, you lost this year was that some of the Hamdulillah? Well, I saw this when we were actually in Morocco, as we went after the, the earthquakes. And we went to the mountains, people lost almost everything, literally everything, their houses can be destroyed, they can go back to these houses and their homes and so on. And we met some of these people. And we said, how would you guys do it? And almost on everyone's tongue, you hear the same thing that hamdulillah
like one of them. Subhanallah he said, Alhamdulillah we lost our house. But Allah azza wa jal gifted us with patience, whatsoever. And unlike la isla Hamdulillah, when he 10 years to teach you in America, that kind of level of patient is Panama the river to be accepting of Allah's cuddles. And he was saying with a smile, like literally, you see, look at his house, you can't live in the desert, you knock it down completely house, this house is useless. It's all cracked all over. And somehow it was still he says, Alhamdulillah we will lost the house but Allah gave us patience. So hamdulillah and for unfamiliar, Allah said we need to learn from them Allah, I swear, because that's
the practice of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala as best in these calamities and these issues. And you see that from our brothers as simple as that every single day. Every single day, the loss of life, the loss of homes, and sub have they been chased out from one place to the other one, even when they have a makeshift tent here and there. And then they bombed again, just like what happened not too long ago. Today as a matter of fact, and And subhanAllah and funniness and so on. And now they had to move in again, again, but you hear these people that say Alhamdulillah Wallahi. We're not going to be defeated. We're going to use we're going to do this. We're going to stay strong.
Where did you get that strength from Gemma? It's from that Yochanan driller ALLAH SubhanA wa Donna doesn't do things in random and they must be Hikmah wisdom Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us to understand your Bananaman and facilitate is for them your manual right now.
In another version narrated by
ally even Abdullah been our best from his father, but whose chain of narration is weak. There was another extra passage after this which is the is messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, how shall they act with certainty? He answered, if you know that what happens if you know that what happens to you could not miss you, and what has what happened and that one misses you cannot happen to you, then you have established the process of certainty. If you just highlight this for yourself, and remember this as one of your life slogans or motos, you remind this yourself every single day. If you always have that in your heart and your mind at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day,
well, Allah you'll always find peace and tranquility, because you have the certainty that ALLAH SubhanA wa does in charge.
Allah is the One who this was my first. And if he chose this for me to happen to me, I know it was meant to happen. And if I missed this, then I know it was it was meant that I missed it. So I'm always at ease because I have the theme that Allah subhanaw doesn't control not me. So that gives you peace and tranquility. Now.
The meaning of this is that certainty of the preceding and completed decree, reaching the heart helps a slave to make himself contented, contented, contented with what happens to whoever is able to act certain of the decree and of Destiny contented, contented with what is decree then let him do so. If he is not able, if he is not able to be contented, then there is a great deal of good and beings patiently steadfast under that which he dislikes SubhanAllah. I mean, that's a summary of it on a moment, but Raja Rahim Allah, he emphasized on the whole concept of Kava, kava and your theme that the arcane and accepted decree of Allah subhana wa Taala go hand in hand, if you want to find
that peace in your life. You need to attain that certainty. I can't have this unless I entrust Allah subhanaw taala to the judgment. So if I trust Allah's judgment, everything, Allah decrees, I know, it doesn't happen unless he allows it to happen. And if it doesn't happen, then I know that Allah did not allow it to happen, no matter how much I try that concept, that understanding of the affairs of this life will put Hamdulillah that contentment in my heart, and bring me that peace and tranquility, because I have that jockeying with Allah subhanho wa taala. Now,
so there are two degrees of the moment with respect to the general and particular decree of misfortunes first, that he is contented and pleased with that, and this is a high and exalted degree, Allah Allah azza wa jal says, Now slobin Mal slob me mostly, but
you may you may hear the Aqaba, no misfortune occurs except by Allah's permission, whoever has a man in Allah who will guide his heart. So this is not the first category, we've talked about four categories, right, we said so called otter socket, which means when you reject that, number two, to be patient, number three, to have Rila acceptance and number four, to have sugar, he's going to only mention two of them. The first one he talks about is a server, which is basically when you just show a patient, that's all it was a VX, if you do that, and you just don't say anything bad, don't do anything bad, you're good. So that's the first category and he said, If you do so, you will find
that ease in your life and shallow data. If we move down a little bit, inshallah and that in that chapter, the next page, the next page, where it says, The people have the contentment rather
than the people of content, meaning sometimes see the wisdom of the one who is testing them, and of his choice for his slave in the trial, and that he cannot be suspected for his degree. Sometimes they see the reward of being contented with with a degree so that it makes them forget the pain of that which is decreed. Sometimes they see the greatness of the one who is trying them and His Majesty and perfection. And they become overwhelmed and witnessing that so much less so much that they do not perceive the pain. So what it says over here, since we're talking about the first category, the higher one, which is a riddle, the acceptance and of course contentment, because how
do people have Rila
have that in their life by observing and reflecting on one of three things. Some, they focus on what the wisdom of the one who is testing them, like, you see that there's always wisdom in Allah's actions. So therefore, I want to I want to try to understand his wisdoms panel with that. And that puts me at ease. Number two, focusing on the reward on the reward for being content. Because I know the one who testing me, he wants me to be contented reward me, so I'm going to focus on that on that reward. And the third one, he says, so the greatness of the one who is trying them subhanaw taala. So now, I'm not thinking about his wisdom and what happened to me. I'm not thinking about that word.
I'm thinking about his greatness of him being able to do whatever He wills and I have no control other than say, My Lord, I submit to you,
seeing his greatness, showing your weakness and makes you a true servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala because again, it's through our weakness. We recognize Allah subhana does greatness subhanho wa taala. If we move now move on a little bit of shallow data to the next part, which is he says
Number two, the second degree Sabha
on the same page. Now, the second degree is of those who are patient affliction. This is for those who are unable to be contented with the decree. Contentment is is a virtue which is recommended and preferred a steadfastness is an absolute obligation on the moment. There is a great deal of good impatience because because Allah commands and promises a tremendous reward for it. Allah azza wa jal says in Nima you have full slavi Munna the lady herself as we mentioned, there is no price tag on silver, nothing.
So therefore you're gonna get the reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. You don't focus on the people whether deserved or not, you focus on what you deserve to be patient while he started, she started I don't care.
It doesn't matter who started the mistake or the error. What matters is that who's going to end it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala now
the steadfast will be paid will be paid their wages in full without any reckoning. So let's move on to a little bit what it says the next page. The distinction between contentment and steadfastness on finish with this Inshallah, the distinction between contentment and steadfastness and steadfastness is to withhold and restrain yourself from discontentment while when experiences pain and wishes for its departure. And to restrain the limbs from acting from impatience can as you can see, so patience outwardly, is restraining yourself from acting outwardly, whether by tongue saying things are bad or doing some are bad. That's what patience all about.
Contentment, contentment is the expansion of the breasts and it's, in his expand, expand an expansiveness with respect to the decree and giving up giving up wishing for the departure of that which causes pain even when one experiences pain. But however, contentment lightens the pain, because of the hearts embracing the spirit of certainty, and Nasus. If the if the contaminant is strong, it will completely drive away the experience of the pain, as we said previously, so this is Subhanallah, one of the most profound things in life, if you don't want to feel the pain of the test and the trial, you need to treat that was what?
Contentment as simple as that. If you don't want to suffer the pain of a loss of a loved one, the pain of losing your job, the pain of not being able to do this, or accomplish this or achieve that. If you don't want to deal with the pain. What is the cure for that? Contentment, rather, not just patients,
red dots in the heart? And how can I get that rather? What do I need? What do I need in order for me to get the religion? I need that you're keen that certainty in what Allah has wisdom? And that wherever Allah wills will happen, no matter what, so nothing happens random, I might understand why, and I might not. But if I trust Allah's judgment Subhana wa Taala I will always find that peace and tranquility and there will be no pain, even though you go through a lot of hardships and difficulties. May Allah subhanho wa Taala but that you didn't know how terrible and I mean, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us the ability to practice that river in our hearts and to practice
that suffering our actions and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us among those who listened to the speech and follow the rest of it Dr. Bill Alameen ya Allah we ask you to guide our heart, which is most pleased to your manual Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salatu salam Shah next week we will continue with the Hadith and probably will enter the next Hadith number 20 as well in sha Allah Tala but that being said we just go quickly to the questions or maybe five minutes inshallah for q&a or eight minutes and then you guys have some sweets waiting for you in sha Allah Allah as a celebration for finishing the first book
Alhamdulillah Milan, Milan reward you for the celebration now.
Okay, we don't have any questions yet on the on the screen. So if I know it has a question, please raise your hand this is
so the question is if Mr. Raja Rahim Allah Tala, he mentioned something audible put down within the free in the previous book, he mentioned that is no authentic narration that proves these points about the virtue of these days that the virtue of these nights that we mentioned earlier, right. So the question is, where do what about other Allama the other animal they made the research and probably they discuss this matter and so forth? Well, that's when it comes to understanding how to distinguish between a weak narration and a strong narration. What makes the narration strong or otherwise so there's a solid
And there's Hasan, the authentic and the acceptable. And then you have the weak narration, we've noticed it has different categories as well, too. So we need to understand that first so you can see the value of the authentic and then an authentic. That's number one. Number two, even when it comes to the non authentic narration, what they whenever they call a dive is also considered category. So that if the weak narration has different categories, some of it is more acceptable than others. Like because if you have multiple weak narrations that is speaking about the exact same subject, and that weakness is not something that is significant that will completely Yanni would nullify any hope of
authenticity. If it was okay, they might actually upgrade that hadith to become Hassane. And that seems acceptable. So that's what some of the elements they might rule. Some of these are highly to be acceptable, according to their research. But other Allama who might become might be actually stronger than them in terms of that, that science of Hadith, they will say, No, that's not acceptable. So the choice will be different. Also, even if it's weak, and they all agree that it's weak. There is an opinion among Dalai Lama, there is an appeal among Darla Ma is that it is permissible to use a weak Hadith or a weak narration. And what we've got for the old man, act two
virtues, so to encourage people for virtues it's okay to do that. That's an opinion amygdala mob didn't matter what am I felt, but the majority of Mr. Hardy, they would say, No, we have enough and handle a virtue in the Sahaba that will be sufficient for us from going into the week and try to actually fabricate a meaningful Wallah. Now
I had somebody raise their hands, that's good.
people need to
I hear you. I mean, the question is about, you know, when we say that when you when someone may Allah protect us or struck with a calamity. They're required to, you know, to be quiet, not to say anything, but we are emotional beings. So I'm going to open my mouth, I'm going to say things. Well, as long as the thing that you say is good, there is no harm. But if you start now saying things that are not accepted, Allah will not be pleased with that becomes dangerous, because ALLAH SubhanA didn't report us in the Quran, some of the Ambia who complained, but they complained to who? To Allah subhanaw taala jacobellis and says, we're calling them as good as they were Hosni, it Allah I
only disclose my my soul and my grief to Allah. So what's the difference? He was disclosing disclosing his grief and sorrow to Allah subhanaw taala? Where does it become dangerous? If you start speaking ill about Allah azza wa jal, and his and his judgment. So like saying, Why me? I'm the good girl. I'm the good guy. Why? So now that becomes dangerous. That's the sockliner. It's no longer patience. But if someone comes in and says, What am I going to do now? I'm so scared that this and that. Now they're not really they're on the borderline of the socket versus sobor. Right? Because when the Prophet came to the lady who was crying on the grave of her son, and the professor
says Yama Tila Tequila was willing to just you know, be patient and you'll be okay. She was leave me alone. You'll have no debt, no idea what happened to me. And that profit left her it didn't come they didn't say what you're talking about the tequila mule on the messenger. He didn't say anything. They allowed her to grieve, right? She disclosed her grave right and the wrong way. When she was told there was a profit so awesome. She freaked out her her tears just dried up completely. Now she went looking for the Prophet Salah Salem and she finally went home. Glad to Allah Allah Salah Martha I'm sorry, I didn't recognize you. The Prophet told Cara Sabra under submitted doula, too late for
that night, your full reward for being patient is at the first strike, doesn't mean people are not going to get reward for being patient afterwards. But the full reward for patients is that the first strike and better than just patients is what the man who said riddle,
with a smile. That's when it becomes even better Wallah. We have your questions answered quickly we'll go over them
can the slave have discontent over action he can control the one that he could have chosen in the past for example, saying if I had tried harder or fought back
the procrastination I mean, yeah, I mean that kind of guilt for that you have over the past and hopefully Inshallah, that as long as it motivates you to do better. That's good. That is good school part of the MaHA Sabha because now you're doing my husband has put yourself to accountability. You're auditing yourself, it's alright. But if that feeling right now is going to cripple you in a sense that you're not going to be able to do anything because you're too feeling too guilty to do to try anything else that becomes wrong. So be careful with that.
How to recognize that
test in good times how to practice Sobor Andrina? Well, how to recognize a test in good times, that's the problem, your DNA test.
When you are in good times, you're already in a test, but what tests are you going through right now the test that requires what from you sugar and gratitude
that requires me to share, to be to be grateful to talk about the need to use that time for the betterment of your of yourself and your own mind. Okay, all of that, that's that's your test, versus someone going through difficult that the test becomes worth to practice sober and patience. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah was always driven off here without having to be trying to dodge or Bananaman now
so I always hamdulillah give generously in the month of Ramadan, but this year, I have no money and I'm in debt, should I still donate some money or save aggressively to pay off my debt now pay your debt off, it's better for you. And when you pay them when they pay off your debt, that's your charity as well too. Don't worry about it the charlatan and if you have sincerely that good intention to give in Ramadan even if you're unable to give hamdulillah you're going to be granted the reward as if you have already given that's the province arsons promised to you that if you're sincere, and you have the same intention, then inshallah we'll get the reward for that but Nila has
May Allah make it easy for your Bananaman
if you're camping in the outdoors and the temperatures are near freezing, is it permissible to make them on facade Fajr
what's what isn't called watermark?
There's no right if obviously if it's if you're unable to use the water unable or if you're afraid of using it might cause harm more than actually benefit in this case yes you are allowed to tell when should the financial What about warming up some water if taken time to warm up the waters gonna you're gonna you're gonna lose federal time now you better just to demo I'm praying Shana. Do I have to make wudu afterwards to pray Fajr after the sunrise just to make up for that missed one. No, you did right when you did it will determine mashallah, it should be fine.
If you pray for her out loud, does that invalidate your Salah? The answer is no. It does not invalidate your Salah.
As a matter of fact, one time Abdullah was out of the line he prayed to us or out loud. And that we will complain afterwards he goes I did this deliberately to let you know that it's okay. Basically like he did that to teach that it's okay. Somehow it's a funny thing that remind me with a story that we're in our message one time long time ago when I was in Kuwait, our Imam used to sleep in his office room, he has some place to rest the reality. So he prayed there after the whole afternoon and he went to go get some sleep probably had had a heavy lunch Mashallah. So when when do I woke him up to pray for Salah to Lhasa, he came to South rasa and he goes Allahu Akbar. And he started starting
outlawed. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, his chef, so we just had this matter out loud. So behind them we were saying Subhanallah
so he stopped.
And then he goes again. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. And we said Subhanallah and we tried to alert him that's you supposed to be quiet. And he's reciting out loud right now. And then he paused again. And then kind of a longer pause and then he then he decided out loud this time is emphasized he goes Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and the people said Subhanallah
then he eventually kind of like it was done and he goes
you said I want to go home to La so I go home
and then he turned to the congregation to us he goes what's going on? You go check this is awesome. Because our style for Allah Allah there was negative seller I think he kind of like the map was too long grim prone for it but if even if you did that as this are still valid, this I was totally valid. Just like if you pray negative silently is okay.
So someone asked us for character, we say the first category is called the socket, which means when you reject it, and you start kind of like complaining and whining about it. The second one is patience when you're just gonna control your actions not to do anything displeasing to ALLAH SubhanA water even though your heart is not actually content with it. The third category is when your heart is also content, in addition to your actions being handled are pleasing to Allah. And the fourth one is actually gratitude even when you're actually going through difficulty. Now, that's a higher level.
That's a hot
scene. Ha, ha. Does
I'll just, yeah, it's the same thing. The socket is when you complain about Jessa is when you panic and freak out. Like you don't show that patient
How can I accept something bad as Allah's Will, if I helped cause it like it was a consequence of my actions, of course you have to accept accountability. Because Allah allows it to happen based on specific ASVAB and means you took the means to misery. You took the means to commit a sin, you're responsible for the actions, the outcomes, Allah has decreed to allow it. But it didn't happen randomly. You chose to get there because you chose to do those things and these mistakes. So should I have done this? How do I accept Allah's color on this? I would say if I committed staff, Allah sin, and I'm hurt, and no, that's actually bad. How do I accept that right now? It's been decreed,
limited, recover from it. How does Allah Subhanallah want me to recover from that, saying this too far? Doing Tober regretted trying to go back again to do better deeds and so on. So like Halloween, I can't change this. I need to move on. Otherwise, when you said sit down there said, Look, this is it. I'm ruined. Allah who will never accept anything good for me. So therefore, I shouldn't be doing anything good. Now, that's what the shaytaan would love to hear from you.
That you gave up on yourself and your deen. That's dangerous statement. Last question, Charlotte.
Do women who are in their menstruation period fall under the category of those who cannot purify themselves? Like can they still wake up for Fajr Fajr time and sit facing the carbon acapella and make the good? Absolutely. Absolutely. The only thing you're not allowed to do and you're in your period is making the Salah and fast into the month of August and fasting in general and tawaf and so on. And among the alumni they say that they shouldn't be holding I must have read the Quran. There's other things other than that, wake up during the summertime make a stepfather stop for lost or for lost or for Allah. Do they care in general?

Unfortunately, we don't have people finishing cover to cover books for law anymore. Seriously, we barely read chapters we did paragraphs with this and that and no one is reading books from cover to cover because when the dilemma they said and they wrote this book Subhanallah you have no idea how connected all these principles that have been writing about and we'll keep skipping it you actually don't benefit much from it. So I want you to benefit from reading books to buy a unit from cover to cover. And because it's becoming a week tradition,
unfortunately in the in the Muslim ummah, we're trying to revive that and mashallah you guys hamdulillah among the few people who are doing that, and probably maybe the first and maybe only people doing it in English

So it becomes beneficial inshallah dilemma looks at from all over Europe anatomy documentary about ecology. One last thing as well from the tradition of Dharma or the Tibetan, whenever you finish a book, at the end of the last paragraph, there actually they write down on this day, that date is was finished.
