How to make it awesome to share with us it's a true profound meaning of knowledge because we said that true knowledge is what the knowledge of the heart and and that's what I mean by it over here

00:00:13--> 00:00:21

Alhamdulillah Allah means that Allah has some kind of Vienna Muhammad and while early or Siva seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama dad, and a little bit I mean right now we are on

00:00:22--> 00:01:04

the second to the second Foundation, which is the NRC secrets of purification. The first part we talked about the the inner secrets of knowledge, what does it mean to be a knowledgeable person? What's the kind of knowledge that you should be looking for? And now Imam Ibn Kodama Rahim, Allah Allah wash again from the book of mam Azada Rahmatullah Talalay talking about the inner secrets of purification, when we say inner secrets of purification, what does that mean? It doesn't mean these are hidden secrets, like no one knows them at all? No, it's basically it's it's, it's, it's known. But to those who really put in enough effort, try to find the meaning of these things. Like handler

00:01:04--> 00:01:39

by men, if you're a Muslim, if you're a practicing Muslim, you may go to so you know how to make what do you know how to use the bathroom, hopefully, you know these things. But then those who have knowledge, they have profound meaning to it beyond just the washing of the hands and the washing of the face, and using the bathroom and so on. There is much more to it than that. There is much more to just saying that there are when you enter the bathroom, and when you leave the bathroom, there is much more deeper meaning to it as well, too. So what he's saying over here, the inner secret is just what is beyond what we see, when it comes to the subject of purification. This is one of the most

00:01:39--> 00:02:20

important chapters of this book. And as a matter of fact, one of them was chapter one of the most important chapters of your life. And I want you to hear what is the meaning of purification? Why is it so important? Because the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam says in the Hadith prophets, Arsalan Khan, a hero, chaperone Iman to who shuttle Iman. Purification is half of your faith purifications of your faith, basically being a believer, half of what you do in your life, all of it, half of what you do, is about purification. So if half of being a believer is all about purification, what is that? What does that exactly mean? Just just take it in a minute although and take a shower. Is that

00:02:20--> 00:02:29

what it means? No, it's beyond that. And this is where he's going to explain to us what does it mean exactly, we talk about purification and Bismillah GoPhone.

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

So now was the last time I was shooting that while he was typing

00:03:01--> 00:03:12

in the book, Eman, Eman it states that Allah may Allah have mercy on him said know that purity taharah has four stages.

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

The first stage is a purification of the appearance towards here Allah both here

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

as Arvato to allow her to run from ritual impurity,

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

filth and nudges and waste for the

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

for the last photo that the second stages of purification of the limbs thought here a job array from since the new in crime so long.

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

Thumb actually

00:03:49--> 00:03:59

the third stage is a purification of the heart doTERRA point from blameworthy traits a hello Perlman movement and despised conduct.

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

But Allah Radha al Alam Kota pellman puto the fourth stage is a purification of the innermost self dot here

00:04:12--> 00:04:52

a seer dot here I sell from everything except Allah. But before we get to further shallot I want to explain this iniquity Shala soldier, Imam Ibn even Monica Rahim Allah Allah in here Alamuddin he said that when it comes to the hara, he has different ranks, different ranks, we will say the four ranks does not necessarily mean it's one after the other one, they are working together interchangeably or at least you know simultaneous. You have to work on all of them together at the same time. However, to understand the value of these levels and these ranks of purification, he goes number one, the first level is a taharah to taharah to La Bajada de la cathedral that means what the

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

purification of the appearance or at least the purification of outwardly means you purifying your hand you prefer

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

Your body you prefer in your place you prefer your clothes, an image of God the table by mineral density. Well and Jessie while for the lot. So you mentioned three things, you purify your body, you purify your place that you purify your clothes from three things. What are these three things number one, Allah,

00:05:18--> 00:05:56

Allah that is the ritual impurity, ritual impurity. So if you break your will do, for example, in a bakery will do that's considered harmless. It's called heritage as well. Minor. Ritual impurity requires some you a specific 50 ruling, or specific practice in order to remove this condition. So this ritual impurity, just a condition, it's a legal condition Islamically, basically, we're talking about legal from a physical point of view, it's a legal condition that requires you to remove in order for you to be able to perform specific acts of worship. So can you pray when you have had, you can't, you have to make will do

00:05:57--> 00:06:07

the second category of the impurity or at least the ritual impurity or heritage Akbar, the major ritual impurity which requires someone to take a shower, such as,

00:06:08--> 00:06:49

from a wet dream, or having intercourse, for example, that requires the person to take a full, full shower, and both of them requires the use water. And if not, then the substitute for water when you can't use that water is to do what? The Revolution attainment it's also good sort of ritual purification and physically speaking, touching the ground and wiping out your face on your hands. Physically, it doesn't purify anything better to ritual purity, because ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala told us to do so. So we remove that legal condition of being impure in that sense. So he says, the first thing that we need to work on is to make sure our bodies are clear from any ritual impurities,

00:06:49--> 00:07:00

whether anything that requires some you to make wudu, such as, for example, passing wind, or using the bathroom. In this case, I need I need to purify myself from that. The second thing he says on

00:07:02--> 00:07:13

the second level, and just that you purify yourself and your body, from oil changes and unjust from damages. And what is not just, that just simply is what is considered the

00:07:14--> 00:07:24

filth. Now they use the word filth for Fidella. But filth over here, it's basically a specific filth that is considered legally or from a point of view.

00:07:26--> 00:08:06

And that just requires me to remove before you even allowed to have a set of Tahara. Like what was Apple urine. If it touches your clothes, you have to have a specific condition of purification, in order for you to remove that such as running water over it. Or, for example, if someone use the bathroom, and suddenly Jassa falls in their shoes, this case, you're gonna have to wash it or rub it in the ground to remove that Naja. So also, those who consider blood to be nudges, same thing, you have to also wash it off and so forth. These are major asset. So you need to purify yourself from that that had that condition of being ritually impure, or Natasa, those are the particular the

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

particles of Nigeria slim at the concert Naja to be removed completely. And the 13, Col wall formula, and formula, these are not not felt. But there, you could consider them as waste, and somewhat like dirty dirty matters and particles. Likewise, just to give an idea about the meaning of further delay, some of these further art could be like sweat, for instance. A sweat considered nudges is not nudges. But is it good

00:08:37--> 00:09:15

news not. So it needs to be removed. Because it's considered for that. It's waste and it's considered dirty. Similarly, mucus, for example, it's not nudges, but it's also considered for that. So if it falls on your clothes, you can still pray with it, you can still pray with it. But it's definitely it's better for you to remove that. So the first thing that we need to work on is to make sure that we purify our bodies, our clothes, our environment, our surroundings, make it very clean and clear. So we make it clean in different ways. Whatever requires from us to remove our ritual impurity, we do that. So if you're required to take Google you make Google if you need to make to

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

take a shower, take a shower, if you need to take what is the substitute for both, then you take

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

Tim, whatever required for me to remove that condition of ritual impurity. Second thing, anything concerning the Jassa remove it, whether it's someone a child, for example, urinated on a carpet needs to remove that to take care of it, or in the bathroom, you know, touch your clothes, you need to take care of that. There are certain rules for this. And remember when pajama Rahimullah did not, did not talk about the details, because this book was not designed for this particular formula of Tara. And the third one he says of course then adjusted from a total from just the waist and he considered dirty, you should clean yourself from that. And by the way, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

as well.

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

Muslims as Muslims, I know handler by me we care so much about the hara from the Jessa.

00:10:06--> 00:10:38

But people need to also care about nada, which means being clean. So Tahara is from the Jessa and the lava from for the Lord and filth and dirt. So you need to be pure and clean. In this culture, you find a lot of people very clean. But unfortunately the cutting edge is around. Like if you go to the public places for example, if you go to the airport, I see that a lot at the airport. It's so just gross really. People with fancy suits and so on. They get to the bathroom, they use the bathroom, they walk out without even washing their hands.

00:10:39--> 00:11:16

And just like law Hello, unbelievable. And sometimes you see people do things in public places just like Wonder what are these people doing? They put their hand in anywhere else or they will spread on just all over the place. But for you as a Muslim you need to make sure you have both your pure and clean and part of being clean is making sure that no smell comes out. No sweat you know is notice on you your clothes, always clean hands, a lot of blood, I mean, and so on and we're going to expand that further as you continue with that inshallah Tabata Katana, the second form of Taha right now. So the first one is the Badri taharah the appearance. The second part of Hiro Jawara hemraj The

00:11:16--> 00:11:58

newbie will Assam now after hamdulillah my physical limbs are clean and pure. What comes next? And He now makes sure that ritually also clean and pure for mud. I don't engage in committing sins. He mentioned two things called minutes the newbie will ask them. So what's the difference between seeing them and atoms and the Arabic language for committing an offense? There are many many different words for that there is them there is FM, there is hottie there is C, there is Marcia, there is wizard. And each one of them defines committing a felony or committing an offense against Allah subhana wa Darna. But in different capacity. So of the two that he chose, for many of that he

00:11:58--> 00:12:10

chose, he chose the word the Reuben, awesome. So the new motto culture, they say, it's the absolute offense, whether you don't you're doing it deliberately or accidentally.

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

Either way, it's considered you know, a dumb like whether someone they

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

intentionally and

00:12:19--> 00:12:42

you know, premeditated that that sin planning for it, that's considered also them. Or it was just a whim of of the moment, a spur of the moment like that. And just like you've done it, you feel the desire, just kind of like flirting in a moment. And you may have committed a sin, both of them consider them whether you premeditated that beforehand, or just happened in the moment, it's considered them.

00:12:43--> 00:12:54

The difference between them and FM right now, so that the FM if it was only done deliberately, like someone literally planned for it, he was planning the day through the night,

00:12:55--> 00:13:39

took a trip to do it, whatever that is. That's now it's specific to be specific about it. And the other another thing that is exclusive for the word FM, is that when someone does the FM, which means deliberately, what exactly are they're pursuing right now they're pursuing led them. Like they're going after the desire after the sweetness of that moment. The pursuing that moment, versus someone just kind of like in a moment they just felt followed their desire. After they fulfill that what happens, they feel the pain and regret right away, versus someone who's actually pursuing it for a very long time. So the idea over here is that he says that tahirul Java cameras do not be well,

00:13:39--> 00:13:53

awesome. Like you need to purify your hands, your eyes, your ears, your feet, your tongue, you purify your body completely from any sin, whether something that you do deliberately, or just a spur of the moment.

00:13:54--> 00:14:01

You find yourself you know, just kind of like compelled to do something or you restrain yourself from any of these things. Now, that takes of course a while.

00:14:02--> 00:14:33

Obviously premeditating a sin Alhamdulillah. For a believer, it's easy to stay away from that is easier to stay away from because I know I want to protect myself from the sensor, I stay away from it. But then, when you are in the middle of a situation, or something pops on your screen, or you see something outside in the street or you hear something or somebody pushes you to do something, for example, become so hard to resist, that is where it becomes extremely important that your mind is strong enough to write a shields you from doing that.

00:14:34--> 00:14:53

So your duty is to strengthen your your your moment when the sin comes in immediately. Are you able to protect yourself from that because the prophets as I've said in the Hadith when it comes to the look another when you look at something haram, the prophesied says letter to another to another. Don't follow the look with another look.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Like for example you see something offensive just like or the lampshade origin hamdulillah good

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

If you see something and then the shaytan says, was that something? Was that what you saw? Like you need to make sure that you saw something wrong or right, right. Don't listen to the journeyman.

00:15:11--> 00:15:34

Just don't listen to the JSON. Don't have another look to make sure that it's right or wrong what yourself, who cares? Call us if you're suspicious about to just leave it. So say, Oh Allah, masha Thorazine and turn away from it. But how many of us in that moment can say, I resist that second look. That's what you can measure. Imagine how strong you remain in a moment like that. So this is after purifying your body, you purify your actions.

00:15:35--> 00:16:17

And obviously, when we talk about actions, the actions of the limbs such as your eyes, your ears, your hands and your feet, and there's also the action of the heart, which he gives it a specific category of its own. And that's what he said number three called tothill Calbee. Minella, Kalma MUMA, or other ill elmham kuta. He said that you purify your heart, from a flat dilemma, the Muma the meaning of the flatten was MUMA, as he translated over here says that blameworthy traits like what is just something like for example, lying, arrogance, envy, all these things that really really plagues the heart, plagues the heart and destroy the sanctity of the hearts completely. And then he

00:16:17--> 00:16:33

says, Carl, was rather ill mum Kuta or dial mum Kuta. He means by that what's mentioned here as despise conduct into the thing that comes into action. Like what, for example, by for example, stinginess, being so cheap, for example, or

00:16:34--> 00:17:11

constant, being angry all the time, and take an action, like being vulgar, the language and speech and so forth. What is that, that the desire to want to be angry, the desire to be always victorious, and try and try and with, you know, every moment that you have with other people, this is what he's talking about, where so you purify your heart, from that sense of competition with sin, for example, to be stronger, just in every aspect, or the desire to be famous, for example, for absolutely no legitimate reason, other than just you know, for the fame and the name and all these things. He says that you purify your heart from things that considered haram,

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

or things considered, you know, not worthy of a believer.

00:17:18--> 00:17:55

It's not befitting a believer to pursue these these traits, such like I said, you know, just to always look for fame and name for example, or being so cheap and stingy, or the excessive love for this dunya all these things you need to purify your heart from that. And we spoke about this in the Hadith Hadith number six last week, if you guys remember, when the Prophet said, as I mentioned, Hasan Emanuel mushir, and he pointed the heart he says, LOL NFL, just the model, there is one piece of flesh in the body, if it's good, everything goes good. If it's bad, everything goes bad. And he said Allah will he'll call it is the heart because the heart as it was mentioned, and Roger Ver

00:17:55--> 00:18:32

mentioned that from his teacher even even claimed Rahim Allah, Allah says, the heart is just like the king to the body. Whatever the king orders, the soldiers will follow. So you make sure that you always make your heart clear, that you you vacate it from all these bad trades and fill it with better than that. And the fourth one, he says, God, that He will call to serve the Mercy of Allah. And that is that you purify the inmost self as Sir basically the inner self, meaning the essence, your essence, from anything, except for Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, what does that mean?

00:18:33--> 00:18:45

It means, if anything, you look out whenever you look around, whatever you do, whatever you see, you only see the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and you see the power of Allah azza wa jal.

00:18:46--> 00:19:26

So if you want to do something, you always think about who Allah says, is that reason to Allah Subhana Allah or not. If you see something happening around the world, what do you think of Allah's hikma? Allah's wisdom, Allah has power. For example, if someone loses their job, instead of whining and crying about it, they said hamdulillah Allah says to me, so what do I need to do now? The Arabic give me the wisdom to understand what is this is for, so we can do better. You always see Allah's hikma Allah's actionless wisdom. People I know a lot of people somehow they were so much about the risk. So they keep work and work and work they become workaholic and they lose their family as a

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

result of that. Why? Because their focus is not in the right direction.

00:19:31--> 00:20:00

If they have put their focus in Allah Allah Allah subhana wa Tada because he is the one who provides they will feel at ease. Because I know Allah is not going to you know, let us go west. Allah will open doors of chi for us Inshallah, but I just need to know the hekman there wasn't of Allah in these matters. So they'll tell us sir is when when nothing in your heart except for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala on only Allah azza wa jal. Another example of this is when people Ramadan comes in people, what do they do? They come

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

They fast. They come for the last night they come out ahead God, the Comforter taraweeh. And they do so many good deeds, what are they looking for in that moment to feel spiritual, the spiritual and they feel it. But the moment of Madonna is gone, what happens to that feeling is gone, because now the incentive is gone.

00:20:19--> 00:20:57

Many, many people when they pursue good deeds, unfortunately, they pursue what that emotional moment, that spiritual moment will look about emotional high moment. Because when I feel it, I feel so great. And I want to pursue that even more. So I can come in and doing it because the incentive is still there. The people that are there that Gemma is the collection of people say all nights of highlights was so sweet to do it during the month of Ramadan. But once Ramadan is over, there is no incentive for this anymore. And I fall behind as a result of that. So what how to correct ourselves. You need to make sure that when it comes to doing these good deeds, your focus is not on getting

00:20:57--> 00:21:28

that emotional high moment. Rather, your focus is on him, Allah subhanho wa Taala to whom you're doing this for and if you're doing it to please Allah azza wa jal, this is the focus is ALLAH SubhanA. Allah be pleased with you, that it doesn't matter if there is incentive or otherwise, because I'm going to do it because Allah subhanaw taala love to see me do these things. Now these are four points he mentioned in this book, another actually versions and also other Allamah. Like even failing, Rahim Allah, he added a fifth one in his book,

00:21:29--> 00:21:51

political term, if that is added, then he even claimed he did, he added actually a fifth one, that fifth one, which is number four, and this order of these four, four points, he put number four, and then the last one becomes number five, it goes Cara Tahara to harder. The purification of the thoughts on the mind. What does that exactly mean? So how does the heart

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

what how does the heart desire something and intend something? Unless what is your ma, a passing thought goes through their mind?

00:22:01--> 00:22:06

You have a passing thought goes through your mind. If you let it go, if you're a goat handler, you're safe.

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

But if you capture that thought,

00:22:10--> 00:22:26

and you start playing it again, in your mind and put it on, you know, on constantly play, what happens? At some point that thought becomes an idea. As I've been playing with Emmeline mentioned in his book to collegiality, then that idea becomes what

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

now becomes actually an intention.

00:22:30--> 00:22:42

And that intention becomes Azim, which means determination. It's not just an intention, no, no, I'm determined right now. And determination requires what planning and then planning to come becomes what action

00:22:43--> 00:22:52

so the thought is still in the heart or in the mind. But once it becomes an intention, and then becomes a termination, where does it fall into the heart?

00:22:53--> 00:23:12

So because before even you worry about your heart or about your mind, if you can purify your mind and your heart or your thoughts from anything except that which is most pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala then it has a lot of bit I mean, you're doing good. You're doing absolutely.

00:23:13--> 00:23:21

And even some of the Allah Subhanallah their thoughts and their minds are only listen Allah azza wa jal, even in their dreams,

00:23:22--> 00:23:44

even in their dreams, how so? They say about Allah Rama was a visiting Rahim Allah with Allah he says God of Allah he Mahala to tickety for Yakata and voila Manam Allah Allah halal. Like I've never I never unbuttoned is basically I took off my clothes, whether I was awake or asleep except in a halal way.

00:23:45--> 00:24:05

Like even his wet dreams, he didn't have it with a spouse. I mean, who can guarantee that your dreams gonna be in the halal as to what level some of these Allah Allah Subhana Allah bless them that somehow there's so much engaged in pleasing Allah azza wa jal and their thoughts that they always think of pleasing Allah subhana wa taala. It comes at their dreams,

00:24:06--> 00:24:20

even those moments come to them and their dreams. And that's exactly where we need to go in our lives. That we always upgrade ourselves purify ourselves that even our hotter our thoughts is nothing but something good. That's only pleasing to Allah azza wa jal

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

who can achieve that? It's not it's not impossible, but it's not easy. That requires a lot of training, a lot of exercise, a lot of self restraining, of course, and then the fourth, the fifth one would be what is counted as number four over here. Tahara sir, so the essence is always about Allah subhana wa Taala whether you look at something outwardly or inward, it's all about Allah azza wa jal, even disasters people see they see Allah Subhan Allah has power in these things. So instead of complaining and whining about it, what do they do? So hamdulillah they all will see him of Allah azza wa jal in every aspect of their lives. This is the meaning of having the purification the

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

essence of purification.

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

Shall now. I'm Imam pada. Mata hemella is going to actually explain further what these four points mean. Let's go for this one.

00:25:08--> 00:25:20

The fourth stage is a supreme goal layup pazza. Those strong Insight will see reach while the blind understand nothing but the first level of purity.

00:25:21--> 00:25:48

Accordingly, you see such men waste most of their precious time and going overboard with washing their private parts stingy and garments, thinking because of devilish was Springs was SORSA and lack of knowledge at that this alone is the purity that one must achieve that one most achieve. Such men are ignorant of the way of the early Muslims, who spent most of their time in purifying their hearts, while not being so strict about their parents side.

00:25:50--> 00:26:25

It has been narrated that Oh, women are not even a brother in law, no one's performed ablution. From a clay vessel of the Christians, though they barely washed off the offensive smell from their hands, prayed on bare ground, walked barefoot, and only use stones to cleanse themselves after using the lavatory. So what he said about him a lot, and over here is that this is the essence what he mentioned these four categories and we added the fifth one. This is the essence of Tahara. When the Prophet saw Sam set up the whole Chateau Eman, that purification is have our faith. So it's not just about washing your hands and taking a shower or even actually washing your clothes. It's way beyond

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

that. So purification of your body, your heart, your thoughts, your essence, all of it counts into it as purification. And so he says Rahim, Allah, Allah, He said, Look, he said that some people unfortunately, those who are amiot basura tomb, like their insight is kind of like their compasses off a little bit. So now they're focusing so much on the physical purification, the physical purification, that the moral purification is not as important to them. And therefore he says you find them with the worst was of the shaytaan that they focus too much on this physical purification making big deal out of it in many, many of these rulings, and he mentioned specific rules over here.

00:27:00--> 00:27:43

He says the earlier lemma such as Robocop and the Sahaba della Turan, Omar Dom, they did not put so much emphasis on the physical purification when it comes to not Naja but from the filth and of course, an alpha dolla, rather actually, they were easy with that likewise, and you give example, he said I'm gonna have Barbara della TerraNova Double Diamond Giratina serrania. He took, he took him it will do from a clay, a pottery clay, actually a pottery jar that is owned by a Christian woman. What is he referring to over here, he's referring to some of the aroma some of the Folk actually opinions are some folk art they say you can't make wudu from non Muslims, pottery or clay for

00:27:43--> 00:28:22

example, containers, why? Out of fear that they're there, their sweat my sift through and touch that the moisture basically of the water and didn't cannot get it across contaminated. As if they're saying that you know what their their their sweat is not just and it will contaminate the water for you. But he says this is absolutely unacceptable. And he mentioned he did that. And before we went over the prophets, Allah Allah has admitted that as well too, when in the Hadith when they were lacking water was they were traveling in one of the regions and then they lacked water. So the Prophet saw some he sent he dispatched a group to look for water. So they found the lady who had

00:28:23--> 00:29:00

to sheepskin water bags, they brought to the prophets of Allah salah, and he may well do from there, even though she was carrying it on her on her bag or her shoulders. So the idea is that we're saying, Look, these people are becoming too meticulous and to specific, and the missing the point, the really the true meaning of Tahara is at the heart of the heart, and the heart of the essence, not just that physical one. The other example he mentioned, he's got a vocabulary I could use when I do have an exam. There is he said that sometimes they barely washed off the offensive smell from their hands. What does that mean? When they eat for example, and they're done eating hamdulillah

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

nowadays, hamdulillah nowadays, we have the blessing of you know,

00:29:05--> 00:29:42

of the water available all the time, easy to go to the washroom and wash your hands and you have even soap and have even different agents where you can remove all that the smell and the oil and so on. The back in the day didn't have that. Still there when they're done eating, they used to say that they rub their hands in the dirt to remove whatever they don't have the water they rub it in the dirt to make sure whatever is left from the oil in their hands, it's removed. If not, believe it or not what they used to do. They used to actually rub their fingers rub their fingers with their heels, their heels because their heels were rough. Not like ours panela just very soft right? So

00:29:42--> 00:30:00

they kind of scrub their their. Their fingers or their with their heels to clean them. For us today. This considered filthy action. It's like whoa, I mean wow, why would you do that? Right? But this is this is it. This is the best of their level of nada purification at least you know cleaners they have

00:30:00--> 00:30:27

back then. It didn't bother it didn't actually bother them with comes to making their Aveda, they still worship Allah subhanaw taala but they focus on the purification of the heart. Even the prophets of Allah salami mentioned the Hadith that if someone is overwhelmed with phlegm and you don't know where to split it, and you don't want your somebody standing next to you the right side or the left side, you don't have a tissue so what do you do? The Prophet says, I said, Do this and he grabbed his sleeve and he actually he spit it in his lead and he folded it

00:30:28--> 00:30:34

and he finished your salon and wash it off afterwards. Now today if someone does that in Salah Allah Robin

00:30:36--> 00:31:12

immediately out of the messy right, but it is not promotion of being dirty Reema handle, the standard of cleanliness has increased in our time, there is no doubt about and we have to go by that standard as well to keep everything clean. But the point he has mentioned him otology that some people unfortunately, they focus so much, and these little things, that they want to be physically pure, but their hearts are so rude. Their hearts are so offensive, you know, to other people, they're always carrying, you know, ill feelings, they have the hazard and the envy and even sometimes, you know, they just hatred towards people, different opinions, and so on. What's the

00:31:12--> 00:31:33

meaning of all was dressing nice and clean and smell beautiful? When your heart smells so bad? What's the point of that? And that's what he's meaning by the essence of this purification. And he says that they also used to pray on the floor, where floor, nothing, no carpet, nothing. They used to walk barefoot, no shoes, no sandals, nothing. And all of that did not actually bother them work the sooner

00:31:34--> 00:31:50

you might want to use the bathroom. They also use you know stones back then they didn't always have water like we have to deal humbler Brandon. Like I know some people today when you go to public places, whether it's actually a hotel event or banquet event, for example, even the airport, people go around looking for a water bottle.

00:31:51--> 00:32:25

And they come bring it to the bathroom and fill it with water and they want to just use it to wash themselves and so on. And interestingly, they have to remove the cover onto the from the water bottle before using the bathroom. I don't know why. But eventually, it's somehow they have to take the extra mile to do so. There is no doubt purifying yourself with water is better. But if you don't have time, or you're not going to hold the whole you know, place behind you or even because of the water that you can use in the bathroom, you're gonna splash it all over the place and make the place even healthier. Subhanallah just use tissues

00:32:26--> 00:32:39

and it's sufficient. It's sufficient to purify an individual if they use tissues may Allah subhanaw taala incident that knowledge of Brahman then he is going to explain right now the second example so let's go over this quickly inshallah Donna.

00:32:42--> 00:32:46

These days or a certain group of people will consider their ornamentation

00:32:48--> 00:33:30

equivalent to cleanliness, not Leafa. Not often. You see them spending most of the times and beautifying their appearances, while their inner selves lie in ruins, filled by the filth of arrogance. Keep it vanity or ignorance, Joe Hill, Austin nation ostentation or yet, and hypocrisy neufeldt. Should they see a person cleansing himself with marathons or walking barefoot or preying on bare ground or performing pollution from an old vessel? They wouldn't be they would rebuke him severely calm, filthy and refuse to eat in his company. As we explained earlier, subhanAllah people they focus so much on this thing they don't really

00:33:32--> 00:33:39

realize that this is affecting their hearts and making their hearts carrying all these unfortunately, bad o'clock and traits and manners yes can go on.

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

Observe how they regard as autism.

00:33:44--> 00:33:53

Alba Alba Alba dalla in dress, which is a part of belief, filth, while or in ornamentation, they consider cleanliness mouth

00:33:55--> 00:34:32

to go, see how the evil has became good and the good evil. But if one intends colonialists with this purity, and does not waste water, and believe that using a lot of it is a fundamental part of the religion. As a dean, it is not wrong but quite the contrary. Now, as for the different types of fields and ritual impurities, the books of jurisprudence felt should be should be consulted for more information on them. And that's we're going to be continuing to show the next part. We're going to get to a new show next week, not next week, the week after vanilla Azerbaijan. But I just want you to understand what he's saying here that don't be deceived by people who all was focused on so much

00:34:32--> 00:34:47

of this level of Sahara that their hearts becomes filled with with enmity with hostility with by the flock and traits. Make sure that you purify your heart from these butterflies and as more than anything else inshallah we're going to continue in the after two weeks with Allah Azza wa Allahu taala.

00:34:48--> 00:34:52

If you have any question, make sure that you scan the QR code to come afterwards and Sharma

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


00:35:18--> 00:35:20

was already there for a reason number seven

00:35:32--> 00:36:08

handler Bellarmine salatu salam Baraka Vienna Muhammad Anwar Ali was seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama bad so tonight inshallah from the book of the moment with Raja Rahim Allah Allah we're reading a hadith the seventh and the seventh Hadith. I mean the derry o the Allah Daniel orba and an Obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon do not see her at dinner not see her at dinner not see her he mentioned that Rita said Allah Allah wa sallam, and then it's gonna Lehman jasola color Lillahi wa sahbihi wa rasuluh he will a metal Muslim Amina where I met him and Allah Who Muslim so this is our Hadith insha Allah Tala let's read the translation.

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

salat wa salam ala Rasulillah.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

You either even

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

made it close or not bring it closer.

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

Smilla wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Salam. The author Ivan Rajib Rahim Allah states

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

to me

00:36:34--> 00:36:37

Tamim even ounce Adoree

00:36:40--> 00:37:20

narrated prophets or Salam said three times the deen is sincerely we said towards whom said towards Allah, his book, his messenger the leaders of the Muslims and the general ality of them. Muslim have the lowest amount of Surah So this hadith is translated as a do not say Ha, the deen is sincerity. Right? The deen is sincerity. Which is different from what we're used for the word Naziha. If you hear the word no, see how it comes to your mind. Advice, right? But here's what's known as sincerity. What does that mean? And where does this come from? So there's another word that may be more appropriate in place of the word. Sincerity over here is actually is honesty.

00:37:21--> 00:38:04

If you take the word a dean is absolute honesty, it would make more sense to start talking about the meaning of these words shall allow the waterco data so the prophets of Allah Salam, he said that three times. The deen is honesty. Your deen is basically being a Muslim is all about being honest. Being a Muslim is all about being honest. Being a Muslim is all about being honest. That's what it means. So the Sahara desert and Lagos Israel so Allah, to who I mean honest or sincere, to whom, God Allah, when he could tell me what you're assuming with me to the Muslim and I'm Matthew mentioned five categories. You need to be honest with Allah, his book, His Messenger, the leaders of the

00:38:04--> 00:38:41

Ummah, and the average Muslim, five categories. So first of all, we're gonna need to learn what is the meaning of Naseeha where this is coming from? How do you translate the word Naseeha and then we're going to talk about how they apply this Naseeha to the five categories. When we say sincerity to Allah, what does it mean? Okay, that's understood clearly, but sincerity to the prophet to the Prophet and to the to the book of Allah azza wa jal. How do you do that? Okay, when we say honesty, what does it mean exactly? When said honesty to Allah subhana wa Tada? What does it mean? Exactly? So we're going to explain that and then we'll talk about nasiha hominin advice. How do you do that?

00:38:41--> 00:39:06

When it comes to the to Allah to the messenger to his book, so Allah animals to the Quran, the book of Allah azza wa jal, because we understand given advice to the to the leaders or to the people, that's easy, but how do you translate advice when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala to the book of Allah azza wa jal to the messages a lot of Salaam, so we're going to explain that inshallah. So, the first inshallah we're going to be reading from page 121 Those who have the book with them, page 121

00:39:07--> 00:39:15

Where it says Nabil Salah Salem and Medina and Masada Prophet sallallahu Sallam told in the middle of the page, go ahead.

00:39:16--> 00:39:54

The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam told her that the deen is sincerely which indicates that sincerity is a term which comprises the characteristics of Islam Eman Hassan, which were mentioned in the hadith of Gibreel and Salaam. If I would like to help you kind of understand also clearly your the words honesty whenever you hear the word sincerity over here. So if you translate that again by saying the Prophet says I'm told that the deen is honesty, which indicates that that honesty is in terms of which comprises that the characteristic of Islam Eman and Hassan or Masha Hadrian, like you be honest to Allah to the book to the Quran to the Prophet SAW Selim and the Ummah

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

and his leadership. So let's see what does it mean keep going.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

All that is known as dean, you

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

Because sincerity towards Allah requires that one undertakes to discharge one's obligations in the best manner and that is the station of Sn without which sincerity towards Allah is incomplete. So sincerity obviously it means what exclusively to Allah subhana wa Taala but honesty means what you do it with complete honesty from the inside. There's absolutely no ulterior motive over there. And you do it genuinely, you do a genuine honest about your duty to Allah subhana wa Tada

00:40:29--> 00:41:00

you're honest about your duty to the Quran, the book of Allah Subhana Allah and you're honest about your duty to the prophets, Allah says even though he's gone, but you still have an obligation to protect the profits or sums honor to follow his example and spread the dinner he brought to us from ALLAH SubhanA wa does all do this you owe to the Prophet so I said, and so that's our honesty, of being true followers, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but you've been genuine, when it comes to believe in Allah azza wa jal, you're genuine about true belief in Allah subhanho wa taala. You're genuine about believing in the book of Allah azza wa jal, you are genuine about believing in the

00:41:00--> 00:41:21

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and you are truly a true believer of a true follower of the GEMA when it comes to dealing with the leadership, and you are truly a genuine member of the community when it comes to dealing with the people around you. So you're honest to them, you're genuine, when it turns dealing with them, and you're sincere when it comes to handling your affairs with them, keep you on

00:41:22--> 00:42:04

that station of Sn is unfeasible without complete love both that which is obligatory and that which is desirable, and that necessarily requires exertion towards drawing culture to him by voluntary acts of obedience, in this respect and giving up those things which are forbidden and disapproved of in this respect also, what does he mean by that? He says look what comes to my heart but you cannot achieve that level of sincerity and honesty until you truly truly bring to the plate. Both your your public obligatory Maha Iberica obligatory love and also recommended love the obligatory love like what what do you mean by that? That you love the flora? You pray the five daily prayers and you do

00:42:04--> 00:42:17

it because Allah obligated this upon you. So that's not the basic level of love that you fulfill the obligation. What about the monster hub right now? You want to show your love to Allah subhanho wa Taala besides just obligation What do you need to do? Everything Allah made

00:42:18--> 00:42:28

Subhana Allah made the monster have recommended you follow do not question nowadays people they come and they ask you don't have to pray the sun after Saddam

00:42:30--> 00:42:34

said Yeah, you don't but it's Mr. Hebden Agha and they live.

00:42:35--> 00:42:37

Like once you tell them it's Mr. Hub. What does that mean?

00:42:38--> 00:43:02

You don't do it? I didn't say don't do it. You asked me a simple question. Is it obligatory or not? It's not obligatory, but if it's recommended to show your love to Allah subhana wa Taala What do you need to do? You will need to go always go after everything. Allah Subhana Allah loves and he he wills for you to do and that's the meaning of Hadith interview Salah Salem, Khaled codici, in which the province of Assam says fall

00:43:03--> 00:43:16

when masa Takara Bella Abdi benowa villa had to have our Mamata Cara Bella, you have division, I have barely moved out to LA that my servant did not draw himself near to me in anything except that which are made obligatory upon him.

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

And he said call and then we propose that call Takara Bella Yeah, have they been our affiliate

00:43:23--> 00:44:00

and then my servant continues to draw themselves nearer to me with no effort with the Mr. Hub actions until I love them. And Allah says the Hadith when I love someone, call us Allah subhana wa Taala will be there for you in your sights, in your actions in your, in your in your hammer and your intentions. Allah is always there for you and helping you go through this life. So that's the meaning of this. What he's saying over here is that that sincerity requires that honesty that you're honest about believing in Allah, you're honest about loving ALLAH SubhanA wa. I don't I don't live Allah unconditional love. Like, look, if I get something good, I will pray if not then.

00:44:02--> 00:44:12

in good terms, I pray the Father and the Sunnah and bad times I just pray the fourth salah, that's enough for me right now, through sincerity, you're always there to please Allah subhanho wa Taala keep going.

00:44:14--> 00:44:59

Among the morsel for the youth of Al Hasan, there is that he said, What do you think if any of you had two slaves, one of whom obeyed him when he told him to do something and would return a trust if entrusted with it? And wouldn't be wouldn't be true to him when he was away. But the other would disobey Him if He told him to do something, betray Him if entrusted with something and deceive him. If he was away, are they equal? They said no. He said you are like that with Allah subhanaw taala. Even dunya directed Imam Ahmed narrated the same meaning from a hadith across from his father from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam so what it says over here, look

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

Good example someone has two people who serve him. One of them have both of them in front of you. They speak nice and well they show their obedience to you that you would love for you and sponsor. But once you're gone, one of them still continues to care for your, for your service, even your absence, and the other one takes a break. If they have a chance to cheat will cheat. Whatever chance to get away with things they will get away with things. Are they both equal? The answer is absolutely not. He says you need to be like the first one. Someone whether there is an incentive to do or otherwise your heart is always sincere to Allah and honest about being true servants of Allah

00:45:37--> 00:45:55

azza wa jal. It's not like when you're aware, your worship and when you're not used kind of like, take a break from the worship of Allah azza wa jal. You're always about being honest towards your beings through servant of Allah subhana water that's the essence of doing that sincerity and honesty to Allah azza wa jal. Now, Tip one,

00:45:56--> 00:46:13

oh, Fidel even yet said love is better than fear. Do you not see that if you have two slaves, one of whom loves you, and the other whom fears you, that the one who loves you will be true to you, whether you are present or absent because of his love of you. The one who fears you will perhaps be true to you.

00:46:15--> 00:46:33

When you are present because of his fear of you, but he will deceive you when you are absent and not be true to you. I think it is very obvious, right? Those who worship Allah azza wa jal out of fear, if I don't worship, I'm going to end up in jahannam. If they can take a break, like I need to do the bare minimum that we do the bare minimum, because my job is just to

00:46:34--> 00:47:01

kind of like skip Johanna. That's all I'm trying to do. So they're not gonna do anything extra. But if you love Allah subhana wa there are more than just fear. If it's a matter of love for Allah azza wa jal, then in this case, whether you there's any kind of incentive or otherwise you always do we always true, you're always sincere. You're always honest to Allah subhanahu Matana. Whether again, that incentive is there for otherwise because you truly believe and love Allah subhanho wa taala. Now

00:47:03--> 00:47:32

as even Rafi said, The Hawaii you said, Teresa, blessing and peace be upon him. What actions are sincere? He said that for which you do not want people to praise you, they said what is sincerity towards Allah? So before that, let's stop on this point. You said Mara, to have been Yamanaka, NASA, what is the meaning of sincerity? Doing something you don't want praise from people for? That's an insensitive to Allah subhana wa Tana? Because why are you doing this for not for the people for Allah azza wa jal.

00:47:33--> 00:48:09

And it's so hard by the way, it is extremely, extremely hard to do things exclusively for the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal. As a human beings, there is always that subtle desire inside us that wants people to recognize what we've done. Like we wish people to see it recognize that that is a subtle, you know, in some kind of desire and resisting that because you do things for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a pure honesty and purity SUTA Eliza. However, the problem was asked one time you are a sword Allah, we do something for the sake of Allah and then people praise us for it. He says it's okay. Tell God universal movement. This is the immediate good news the given to the

00:48:09--> 00:48:14

believer. As long as your heart doesn't pursue it, you will find inshallah barakaatuh. Now,

00:48:16--> 00:48:40

he said, it is that you begin with the rights due to Allah before the rights due to people. And if two matters arise, one of which is for the sake of Allah exalted as he and the others for the sake of the world. Then you begin with the one which is for the sake of Allah exalted does he how many of us they waste Allah's hug and right in the presence of people are being shy and bashful, not to be embarrassed in front of the people?

00:48:41--> 00:48:45

How many of us skip salah, because come on, I don't want people to know that I pray

00:48:46--> 00:48:51

how many of us don't gatherings they delay their Salah simply because they don't want to kind of like be the party pooper.

00:48:52--> 00:49:04

They don't want to spoil the fun for the people. So therefore they're willing to compromise they're very bad and their Salah simply because of that. Because look, when it comes to being honest, Allah azza wa jal Allah always come first.

00:49:06--> 00:49:30

No matter what the situation is, unless, of course there's a leeway like you're traveling you can do this or that's different but in marriage like you being in a party, with with people in the house, for example, Salah Tomsula Don Zuma, it's time for us to take a break and shall have 10 minutes to pray and then we'll come back again to this. Allah's Allah's armor comes before anything else that's the true meaning of sincere you remind people of their duty to Allah subhana wa taala. Now,

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

and lot to be said about bogura mo loudhailer.

00:49:35--> 00:50:00

Now, sincerity is a word denoting a totality, which is to 10 good for the one who is the object of one sincerity. He said, the linguistic root of sincerity is purity. As one says that one has purified the honey I removed the wax from it. So whose meaning is bringing right now the literal meaning of the word nausea, or Naziha comes from NASA to show you, Anastasia

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

associate when you purify and refine something, so when you refine the milk for example, it's called the Sato. This is called Nasu. That milk is Nestle which means a purified or it's being in a kind of like being refined acid Honey, what it's purified from any impurities that have been from the from the wax is actually called acetone MASU. So he's completely purified, completely refined. Similarly, when you do not say hi to somebody, what is your intention of doing that not say I do this individual to purify them and refine them. And when you do not say ha to Allah subhana wa Taala in the meaning that you're honest and sincere to Allah, what does that exactly mean? You define your

00:50:39--> 00:51:15

relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala completely from anything else, but Allah azza wa jal, and that's the true meaning of nasiha handleless panna cotta, so he also defines by saying, to hurry colon Elfo Ferlin fius Hola. Hola. Sahaba whenever you try to be sincere and honest to somebody, what does that mean? You're saying and you're doing things for their benefit. That's the essence of being honest with people. I'm honest with you because I'm looking after your benefit. That's what I'm doing this for and it might even cost me but I'm still doing this because I would like to have Naseeha for you. So would it being honest and being sincere to Allah subhanho wa Taala it might cost

00:51:15--> 00:51:31

you it might cost in this dunya but you're doing this you know in order for you to bring benefit to the deen of Allah subhana wa Tala to the wonders of Allah Azza. To that regard of Allah Subhana Allah to the Command of Allah as though you're after the benefit to the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now,

00:51:33--> 00:52:12

the meaning of sincerity to Allah Gloria says he is to have sound belief in his oneness and tend to intend only him with one's acts of worship. Now, sincerity to his book comprises believing in it and acting by that which is in it. sincerity towards his messenger comprises affirmation of his prophethood and to exert oneself in obedience to Him, and that which He has commanded and forbidden. So, he's basically he what he's saying is that given a summary of the meaning of the Hadith, sincerely to Allah is oneness Aveda and of course preaching the deen of Allah Subhan to the world sincerely to the book of Allah azza wa jal or honestly the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada believe in

00:52:12--> 00:52:49

it, work in accordance instructions, and the sincerity and honesty to the prophets of Allah salaam, even his absence obviously to believe in his in his Naboo His Prophet sallallahu sallam, and making sure that you obey his commands. What about Allah Sara Murray and abstain from the prohibitions he has shown us in his life Salawat Hello Sara Marie sincerity to the people or honesty to them, the leadership obviously to engage in in this lie like you correct things and you do our model for NA Mancha and that also includes dealing with the people around you as well too. That's the That's the summary of the Hadith itself. Now next, in the next actually part, he is going to bring the words of

00:52:49--> 00:53:00

Imam Muhammad. Nasir Almaraz Rahim Allah Allah in which he is going to explain these five categories in more detail so we're gonna go over them inshallah quickly inshallah Allah do it. Amen.

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

Muhammad Nasir Omar was, was

00:53:04--> 00:53:45

said in his book XIM for the rock solid Salah Dalian Pedro salah, there's a book by Mohamed El Mirage Rahim Allah. Vanessa Mara was Italian Pedro Salah he says honoring the rank of the prayer that one of the people of knowledge had explained this hadith in such a way that cannot be better. And so we narrated here word for word in sha Allah exalted as he, Muhammad David also said, one of the people of knowledge said that the complete explanation of sincerity is that it is the concern of the heart for the one to one is sincere. Whoever that one is, and what does that exactly mean in seminary? Whenever you you care about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't care about

00:53:45--> 00:54:19

yourself. You don't care about the people around you, what you care about is worth making sure that they know Allah subhana wa Taala to whom you will not be sincere, takes priority even was on the account of you losing certain for example things with people but if you lose things in the dunya there's a handle you're gonna be honored for this in the Athonite with Allah subhanaw taala if you want to be sincere to people, I don't care what they're gonna say I don't care if they're gonna accept from me or not what I care about what I do their duty to them because I need the best for them. So I give them the Nancy Hannah Navarro if they're gonna accept it or not. So, you always have

00:54:19--> 00:54:21

your concern for the one who is subject to be honest

00:54:23--> 00:55:00

and has two aspects. First is that which is obligatory and the other is that which is optional, that sincerely towards Allah, which is obligatory is an extreme concern of the sincere person to follow the love of Allah and performance of that which He has made obligatory and an avoidance of that which he has forbidden. And that's we are all equal in this, we are all equal and as we all obligated to follow these two instructions to follow the command itself from the haram. But then, the third the second part, as far as the sincerity which is optional, it is prefer it is to prefer his love over the love of oneself. That is demonstrated in the case when two different

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

manners present themselves, one of which is for the sake of oneself and for the other for one's Lord. And that one begins with that which is for one's Lord and delays that which one is for oneself. Okay, let's pause on this one here. So he's basically saying now, the monster hum they're not obligatory when you have two things thing is something for your naps and something for Allah subhanaw taala if you're truly honest and sincere, you always prefer what what is belong to Allah subhanaw taala yours like what? Work in Africa for example, one of the biggest examples when it comes to economic vision is It is the work of professional Gemma. It's not easy right? If you say is

00:55:41--> 00:56:08

mashallah Baraka Rama, right? So, it's not easy to work a professional especially in the summer, when you only sleep barely three, four hours probably. And you're gonna have to wake up professional, there is no doubt as difficult and hard. So now your eyes are open. Because you heard the adage for example. You have duty that you Oh ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, wake up and make wudu and pray Fajr and you have a duty or to your body is to do what? Take an extra five minutes. Right? Five minutes, right?

00:56:10--> 00:56:27

So which one takes precedence right now? Where's your priority? Those who say hola, hola. Foreign Rahim. Allah will forgive me. They do or prefer their body over of course, Allah's duty. So are they being genuine? Are they being honest to Allah Subhana Allah in that moment? The answer is no.

00:56:28--> 00:56:37

What I'm so tired, I hear you. But even with that fatigue, you go and you pray for the sake of Allah and you go back to bed, you've done what is best for you and Adonia and Alfia.

00:56:39--> 00:57:15

Right. So that's just an example of how we define what is considered, you know, right or wrong for you to hedge it fast. And Mondays and Thursdays, for example. It's not obligatory, but you know what, it's a bittersweet. It's a long day in the summer here in Texas. And if you're going to be spending your summer martial or fasting every other day, Allah or by the end of Ramadan, by then I mean of the summer holidays, yeah, and you're done for the rest of your lifetime. But it's hard, but you're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala, you will find pleasure, you will find pleasure in doing that. That's what he means Rahim Allah Tara. With that, let's move on to the

00:57:15--> 00:57:18

second part of show which is the second half of the book, it is on page 123.

00:57:19--> 00:57:24

As for verses 30 towards his book, towards the end, the bottom of the of the page one and 23

00:57:26--> 00:57:32

I suppose sincerely towards this book. It comprises extreme love of it, and to honor its rank, since it is the speech of the Creator.

00:57:34--> 00:58:19

And extreme longing to understand it great concern to reflect on it and to and to pause and its recitation to seek out the meanings of that which his Master loves for him, to understand from it, and then to act by it, for his sake after understanding it. It is similar with someone of the slaves of Allah who is sincere, he understands the counsel of the one who advises him. And letter comes to him from him, he is concerned to understand it, so that he can undertake whatever it is that he has written in it to him. The one who is sincere towards the book of his Lord is like that, he is concerned to understand it so that for the sake of Allah he can undertake to do that which He

00:58:19--> 00:58:22

commands him to do as He loves and is pleased with him.

00:58:23--> 00:58:50

Then he will spread what he has understood among other slaves, and he will be constant in studying it with love for it, taking on its qualities of character to which Allah draws attention in it, and becoming refined by its courtesies. Now. So what does it mean? It says, look, the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is just like when you when you go to someone asking for Naziha I want to give you an essay on advice, what do you do with that? Do you throw it away?

00:58:51--> 00:58:54

Or do you go on if you follow it, just like, you know,

00:58:55--> 00:59:20

they gave it to you, because I went seeking the advice, the counsel, I'm looking for their help on their assistance, I have troubles in my life, I need to fix my situation, I go to someone give him and I say, Hmm, and I know this person is expert. So I am going to take them as that sincerity to this individual, honestly with this with this counselor, but if I give you an advice, you came to me asking for advice. I gave you this what you need to do. And what do you do with that? Naseeha it's too hard for me.

00:59:22--> 00:59:36

I can't do this, or this or that. Then what's the point of this? Similar he says here your sincerity and honesty there was the book of Allah azza wa jal is treat the book of Allah as if someone has given you advice and who is now giving advice.

00:59:37--> 00:59:59

Your Creator, the one who made you subhanaw taala. The best advice you can take from whom the one who made you Subhanallah that he knows the best for you. He says Allah Allah, Allah will have people who knows best than the one who created Hana watan, so I am going to put everything in my power to follow his advice. If someone sends me a letter, I will make sure to understand exactly what he means by those words.

01:00:00--> 01:00:33

Because this individual who sent me that letter took their time and they typed it up for me and wrote it with their hands probably even and signed it and made sure that you do every word counts, and then they gave it to you. So what do I do with that letter? I'm going to try to understand every word in there. And if there is benefit for others, I will share with other people. He says the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best example. This is the book that will come to you from Allah azza wa jal. So every single word counts and there is benefit for you in this in the book of ALLAH SubhanA. So that's the meaning of the honesty towards the book of Allah azza wa jal now number

01:00:33--> 01:00:34


01:00:37--> 01:00:39

go gonna go to the other one.

01:00:40--> 01:01:12

One of the kinds of sincerity towards Allah Exalted is He is towards his book and his messenger. And it is one of those types which people of knowledge are particularly qualified for, is to prevent leading erroneous opinions at source by means of the book and the Sunnah. And to make their proofs clear on the matters which contradict all the erroneous opinions, you know, what I think was, was skipped actually, a little bit more. So let's go back again to the same point where we start. So as we're back to page number, actually 123 Keep going.

01:01:14--> 01:01:16

Feb. 23, as well, the province also

01:01:18--> 01:01:57

towards the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam in his lifetime, it was to concert once fullest effort to obey Him and to help him and cooperate with Him, and to spend one's assistance when he wanted it. And to hasten to love him. As for after his death, it is to be concerned to seek out his sunnah and to research His qualities of character and his courtesy. This is what matters to us today because the prophets of Salaam is not with us. Actually, this is on the top page of page number 24 124. So this what matters to us here is after his death, what is your son honest and sincere to the prophets of Allah Salah that you make sure that you pursue his sunnah. You go after his flock and manage in

01:01:57--> 01:02:34

order to follow in your life, you honor his commands. Salatu was Salam. And you always fulfill his obligation is the commandments. So what Allah was Ramallah, whether you're upset or happier in every aspect of your life, you follow the example of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam now, and to honor his command and to continue to undertake obey it, and to be extremely angry and to turn away from those who take on something other than his son. As dean, when we've come to see him being angry with those who take some someone else's suddenly besides the Prophet sallallahu sallam, not angry Allah yelling at them angry it means in your heart you're upset that they're not following the

01:02:34--> 01:03:08

example the prophets are a lot of settlements Subhanallah honestly, today in our time, this is one of the biggest problems we have today. The whole pride month and following of course, the LGBTQ agenda and Muslims today is confused. Some of them they say, you know, as a Muslim, you know, you love high for everybody you have to be you know, lenient with everybody and so on. Unfortunately, we take this as a political position that's all a political alliance, we forget that we have also standards. We have stand we have principles we have to adhere to. And these standards are the standards that we have in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam no matter

01:03:08--> 01:03:49

what. So yeah, we get upset with Muslims who leave their deen and the principles of the Quran and the Sunnah is simply just to gain some political alliance with somebody. We don't we're not going to accept that. So we all adhere to the example of the Prophet Salatu was Salam ala because we have standards now and to be angry with whoever wastes it, because of his preference for some worldly matter, even if he has ostensibly embodied it in his deen and to love whoever has some relationship to him, whether of kinship or through marriage as in laws, or through emigration of the widow who, or support, wha June not, or support of the soul or companionship in Islam, even for one hour of the

01:03:49--> 01:04:19

night or the day and to imitate him in his appearance and clothing. Basically, like we love the prophets of Allah Salam, we love those who love the prophets of Allah salah. We love those who sacrifice themselves to be with the practices in their hijra, the Sahaba, Delano and sorrow sacrifice everything for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we love them as well too because for the love for the prophets, Allah Salam and the sacrifice for the deen of Allah azza wa jal, if we can even look the how they look, there will be great. Now with regards to the last statement, he says that we see we imitate them and the way they look and the way they dress that are really subject to

01:04:19--> 01:04:30

subject of traditional customs. So it really depends not to it's a completely on a definition of what he says over here. So we go by the standard of our time as long as within the boundaries of Sharia now.

01:04:31--> 01:05:00

That's where the sincerity towards the leaders of the Muslims, that's number four right now, now, that is by loving their correctness, their maturity of intellect and good management affairs, and their justice, loving the unification of the OMA under them and attesting the division of the OMA against them, professing obedience to them in whatever comprises obedience to Allah subhanaw taala hating those who hold the view that it is legitimate to rise and revolt against them and loving to honor them in matters consistent

01:05:00--> 01:05:34

with obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. So in this in this subchapter his origins this paragraph he speaks about having this sincerity and honesty towards the leaders of the Muslims. Now this usually about the the major leadership when it comes to being, you know, the Emir of the Ummah basically we don't have that over here we live in a non Muslim societies or what leadership is basically is based on what they call it today. The social contract in which the society developed a specific you know, formula to how select leaders through democratic system and as a result these leaders right now they're not chosen by the OMA in terms of you know, the most righteous people who said these are the

01:05:34--> 01:06:09

best people for you is selection of whoever voted so we don't know if they're good or bad and we see the result of our choice this time unfortunate they were the OMA the people's choice in this society right now. We have a pride event in the White House in which indecency was displayed. Unfortunately one of the public for everybody to see. So in this situation, what do we do do we apply the same ruling over here like we have to advise them and tell them you have this haram this is wrong this is what we go by whatever we can afford to do under the law of the land in order for us to remove evil and bring high as much as we can. We condemn that we reach out to those we can to show them how

01:06:09--> 01:06:46

offensive this to us to try to bring mashallah to the higher again as Muslim I am must my duty not just to the Muslims, to everybody in my society to do that which is right and stay away from that which is wrong. We do our best inshallah Tabata Katana. Now in regards to our minor leadership in our Muslim communities, like the masajid, the schools, any organization that you are part of, in the Muslim community, then you owe your leadership, this understanding of you know, look, if you're part of this organization, hamdullah we have bylaws we have system we have, then you need to adhere to that. If there is something wrong with the system, then I need to bring that advice to the

01:06:46--> 01:07:17

leadership because that's my duty towards them to advise them and also they you know, to advise them as well too. So, we have this duty towards each other, but to always creating problems and fit in and break away and creating you know, inside alliances and shadow governments in a certain in the in the Muslim community, that is unacceptable. We owe each other that honesty and sincerity towards one another as organization and also as communities in shallow terracotta. Allah says, We love good for them. And we love also we love them for the for them for honoring Allah subhanaw taala as command to God.

01:07:19--> 01:08:02

As for sincerity towards the Muslims, it is that one loves for them what one loves for oneself and dislikes for them. One dislikes for oneself, and has compassion for them shows mercy to the youth and respects their elders and grieves for whatever it grieves them and rejoices for whatever gives them joy. Even if it harms one's own interest in the world, such as making their prices cheaper, even though one loss, I won't lose it some profit on that which is one is selling for train. And the same way he dislikes everything that harms them generally, one should love what is good for them for the welfare, their unity, then concordance and for the blessings to continue and to help them

01:08:02--> 01:08:35

against the enemies and repel every harm and unpleasant thing from them. Lima Rahim Allah speaks about the time that Hamza will still have some remnants of those memories. And those are two practices in which the marketplace, it says that some merchants usually would care for each other. Like even though they all have a wonderful line of shops, and they all sell the same product. So and I've heard many stories about this, and I've seen it Subhanallah and some Muslim countries as well, too, when you go to some of these, you know, decent, decent Jonnie merchants, you buy some stuff from them, and you ask them when they don't have when they don't have the product. And you asked, Do

01:08:35--> 01:09:12

you know anybody who has this, they say, you know, that shop next door, this person, that person go they have it, they advise you to go to their competitors, basically, go buy from them? Why is that because they know that it benefits everybody, they have hired the one they want to have the high for everyone. Similarly, he says that in our society, we need to do that as well too. When you see something that hamdulillah good happens for them, you you you share the joy with them something bad you share their their grief and their sorrow, you support each other you even you try to you make dua for them. And if things get expensive and difficult for them, help them out, you know, to

01:09:13--> 01:09:49

eliminate these expenses and make sure that even if it's an account of you losing some of your business, reduce your prices, bacilli says if you're a merchant for example, in order for you to have less profit and bring benefit everybody else in the community as well too. That's the spirit for the Muslim community and the OMA and that is the meaning of a masa in terms of being honesty and sincerity. As for the word and Naseeha which means to give an advice to the person who didn't break it didn't talk about it in detail, except later on actually in the book Inshallah, you're gonna if you continue reading it, you will find that he gives some meaning of that. But here's some advice

01:09:49--> 01:09:59

that you are going to ever be given someone else. Remember you have to have honesty sincerity to Allah subhana wa taala. To the to the book of Allah to the prophets are sent to the people. How can I be honest with you?

01:10:00--> 01:10:17

Number one, if you're going to have someone to say, make sure to be sincere to Allah Subhanallah first and foremost, why are you advising me? Are you advising me just because you would like to show that you know better? Are you difficult because for the sake of Allah azza wa jal make sure that it's actually it's for the sake of Allah number two, when you do that you will not see her

01:10:18--> 01:10:52

is not based on cheating, like you're not giving them to say hi to cause me loss, like advise someone to do something so they can actually delay something and you go, and you take it away from them, you need to do it because you truly want the benefit for them. And when you give the NASA, NASA, it's done also in the right time, the right place. And when you do it, you don't do it in public, if you can do it privately. Don't try to win an argument in front of everybody just for the sake of you know, winning points in front of the public, when you can give that Naziha later on, like sometimes in a speech public speech. It's better to give them and say hi to the speaker on the

01:10:52--> 01:11:00

side. Unless someone speaks something that's really really offensive to the use of ALLAH SubhanA wa it's my duty to give back to the rightness yeah for that and sha Allah, the baraka Wattana.

01:11:02--> 01:11:41

So this is the meaning of Hadith, a date of the Allah to Nevada, in which the Prophet saw Sam says I do not see her so now we go. We say that a deen the essence of our deen is what is sincerity is honesty, sincerity and honesty. Brothers if you guys were to sit down and shut the door first, second Aloka so it's honesty, sincerity and honesty, to whom to Allah subhana wa Tada by fulfilling His commandments, by doing everything to please Him, and pursuing him. Not that spiritual high we talked about earlier, your sincerity to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by following his command, following his example. And as soon as Allah alayhi wa salam, O Allah,

01:11:42--> 01:12:21

sincere to the book of Allah azza wa jal understanding it its meanings, its instructions working upon this and spreading the word of Allah azza wa jal as well to the public, then I'll say hi to the leadership by always have that kind of engagement, advising them Amaru Nihan monka and staying with the GEMA as much as you can, and the people obviously will have full sincerity and honesty when you come to showing though to go and bring what is good for them in the dunya and in the ACA, may Allah subhanaw taala make us those who are sincere to is to Allah azza wa jal to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to the Ummah and to everyone BarakAllahu Comitia

01:12:21--> 01:12:25

Allah Allah with the q&a we're going to have it after Saudi Arabia salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
