Alhamdulillah Bella Alameen wa sallahu wa Salam o Bara kind of Vienna, Muhammad and Laila Ali was to sell him to Sleeman Kathira mama bad so we'll come back to that soon. As we come on to the end of the first part of the book Amanda will play we'll put them or him Allah Tala matassa min Hajj al Cassadine. We're coming right now to the car or the rod of the night. So if you remember the last section we studied was our do not mean that the specific times where the dhikr is preferable during the day, and American pajama Rahimullah following the footsteps of a member of a Zani who's also was following the footstep of Imam Avatara Bill Mackay and Putin Kulu making them seven segments of the
day where you can make your Ibadah and now he's moving right now to the time of the night, in which he is divided into six actually portions of the night six portions of the night that he suggests each one of those called word they suggest for us to make our Ibadah and our TA so inshallah we're going to begin with that Ben Elijah Baraka data Bismillah
Smilo salatu salam ala Rasulillah. The author Rahim Allah says the first word of the night, the time between sunset and the evening prayer raesha when the sunset one offers the sunset prayer and then stands in prayer till the evening prayer is shut. It has been reported that and I saw the law one who said about the words of Allah the Most High to Jaffa, you know, boom mine in my lodge area their own out of the home Hofer welcome I when we met I was applying at home your vehicle and their sides apart from their beds, they supplicate their Lord and fear and aspiration, and from what We have provided them they spend this verse was revealed was revealed regarding the companions of Allah's
Messenger who used to pray between the sunset prayer and the evening prayer will hold a little Radi Allahu Anhu narrates the Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if at first if a person offers six units of prayer, after the sunset prayer and does not speak evil between them, the equal for him the worship of 12 years of having a lot of blood and so on. Muhammad and Muhammad Ali Baba Kodama Rahim Allah Allah, Allah begins with the six portions of the night where the dhikr is the best. The first one, he says, When the sun goes down it a lot of other ships, he'll have Achalasia until the time reshot Salah. So that would be about what 45 minutes 15 minutes in terms of the
timing between Maghreb and the actual beginning of Russia when the when the sun goes down, and then you start you see that the white Twilight, and then the becomes actually, actually the first of all would be the yellow, orange, and then it starts becoming red. And after that, it becomes kind of pinkish, and then start becoming white. And then that's when the blue Night actually starts coming in. So during that time, he said there will be the first time of the night. Obviously, when everything is normal. For us, we live a completely abnormal lifestyle. For them, they start the day before Fajr, and it ends with the sundown for us. Maghrib is barely halfway through the day. And
look at us right now, all the two plus hours after Russia and Marshall was still awake, the kids are awake the vodka ramen, so it's a whole different thing right now. But for him, he says this is the first time for the record to mention the liquor parlor, Estacada beer here in my brain and Asia and it is recommended that you spend your time between Melbourne Russia and Ava and Impala to do that, now for us, who is still finishing our chores for the day. But for them, they're done with the chores. There is no enough light anyway. So there isn't much to do, except that they try to survive until Salah Tunisia before they fall asleep
before they fall asleep. Because that was actually the situation back then and the prophets of Allah Salam. In the Hadith he mentioned that the most difficult two prayers for the hypocrites is Fajr and Isha. And Aisha Sahaba gelato ran home, they would, they would struggle to stay awake for Saudi Arabia, and even the prophets Allah Sam said, If I would, if I wouldn't be harsh on the Ummah, I would have ordered someone to call the Sudan call the karma and instructed Russia and I would go behind to those who are still in their homes not coming from Saudi Arabia, I will smoke them out. Like I'll use fire to smoke them up is the best because I'm aware I'm worried about the children and
the and the ladies in the house. That's how important that Russia is. So when the Sahaba used to come for Russia, they would say that sometimes you would hear people blowing which means what?
They're now snoring. And suddenly we're just gonna like about to start sleeping. And then the professor will come out for Sarah Delicia so that's why the time was different. So he says it's better that you keep yourself busy before the shot start by doing a better that's why he suggested it, which is why He quoted the idea that that Anna's for gelato and suggested here from sort of search that Bucha Allah subhanaw taala says about the believers that the Jaffa genome and Medallia that their sides the side part is just kind of like a
almost feel agitated they don't want to put their sights on the mattress is like they don't want to sleep yet. They don't want sleep yet because they're still solid Russia coming up. Although the majority of them facility they say that it speaks about the hedging, but still here it says they don't want to go to sleep so early because they don't want to miss a lot of Asia. So that's why he suggested in regard to the height of the Allah dunhua that the Prophet saw some suggested a person to offer six Salah Sakura card after the sunset, which is basically between Maghrib inertia or between the Adana and the karma depends on how you define that time timeframe. This hadith is very
weak is very very weak. Although you hear from some folk AHA they call the six rock as they call them Salah to our been they call them Salah to our being the salah of the our beanie those who are devoted because this is the time when people are falling asleep but this person who wants to stay up and observe a bada until the time for Santa Lucia comes in so again they weren't met we're not gonna begins that's what they suggest Rahim Allah Allah Allah Allah this raka this this six raka are identified in a weak Hadith so you don't have to make them however, am I allowed to pray anything after certain Maghrib? The answer is yes. How many raka as many as you want. Go how many raka Can I
pray before marriage salah? Well, the Sunnah is to rush into the fourth salah. However, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he suggested between every Ananda karma, that should you pray two rakaat list. So therefore even between Adana and karma, you should pray raka Sahaba, they said sometimes with Camposanto Maghreb and we see that the people are standing in Salah we think that they're done with the fourth and they pray the sun afterwards, but instead we realize they're just praying to rock after the Adhan. And before they come so it's okay to pray to rocket before slotted Mercury between the Adhan and a comment shallow tan they say second one, the second word of the night, the time
between disappearance of the toilet and going to sleep. It is recommended to pray between the two prayer calls if possible, he should recite LF meme 10 Zero keytab at inflamm meme, this is the revelation of the Book and about okay let EBIT Hill molk Blessed is He in Whose Hand is Dominion
indeed, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not asleep before reading them. They've been mis routed on Rhodiola horn who narrates another Hadith or Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He who recite Surah wellfare every night will not be afflicted with poverty. Now in regard to the second part of the night, he said it's done the time from you're done was allotted Maghrib until the disappearance of the Twilight, the Twilight and going to sleep here in the Arabic text actually said a Shiva called Armada read Twilight. Why, because again, if you if you observe the night as the sun goes down, this as the sun goes basically farther away, the car changes. So
when the sun barely sets, it still bright, white bright, you could say and then becomes yellowish and then start becoming orange and then becomes red. And so becoming pink is becoming whitish, and then that white start turning into bluish until it becomes the darkness of the night. So he says, until the disappearance of the red Twilight, so this is the beginning of Serato salata Alicia for many of the folks, some of the mothers actually notes later until the white while it's completely disappears, but overall, he's suggesting the time the second time between you're done with your mother Uppsala, until the beginning of Asia Salah once he starts, he says, Get yourself busy. Get
yourself busy by praying to raka in which you recite the first record you recite Surah acesta. And the second way you start Surah Tabata credibility among Surah Al Mulk. Why is that he cuts the Hadith all those disputable in terms of authenticity that the Prophet SAW Selim who will decide in every single night, he said to go out of the disputable aspect of it, you decide that or not just pray to Raka and decide this to raka to sorrows, so now you're doing it in Salah anyway. Now you can imagine mashallah, the expectation from the Ummah that he has a Masha Allah Rahim Allah Donna that in your sunnah you recite Surah as as long as Surah to soja and Surah Al Mulk. Now what is Allah
Messiah even even our fourth Salah people struggling to recite longer than collo Allah I didn't know that I can cover and he was saying he suggested in your nefyn in your sunnah you recite longer sewers because you need to do for sure in the salon. In addition to that he says reciting Surah Tala waka as well and the hadith is also is actually a weak Hadith, a weak Hadith however, there is no doubt reading Quran in general throughout the night as well as Baraka reciting it in Salah is even better, inshallah to Bartolotta Now,
the third word of the night, the with the widow prayer before sleep as for those who observe that night prayer Leanna Lee delaying the winter is better for them. I showed you Aloha
have said in every part of the night the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam performed the winter, the beginning the middle and the end. In the end he performed whatsoever before dawn, after wizard, one should say thrice so behind and medical produce exalted as a sovereign doll wholly not. So what's the meaning of this right now? So the third one he says, that's when min is the one when you pray Witter before you go to sleep, and he made this a very special time for it. He made water in itself, a very special word because for him I consider that to be a very unique salah, which is indeed a very unique Salah because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the messenger of allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never stopped or never actually stopped observing sunnah tell Fajr or sooner or later whether he was traveling or resident. That's why the word is actually has a very special place. He says Alberto Kubla Nam if you plan to pray tahajjud if you plan to pray to hedge it, then you need to, you need to delay your water until you finish from a tragedy shallow Tana but if you worry about not waking up for it, then go ahead make your water before you go to sleep. That's according to Hadith a border of the ultra nwaba and hundreds of other animals which he says Carla also Annika Lily salat wa salam, ala my beloved Rasul Allah, he advised me to observe three
things. He says, one is too fast, three, three days, three days of every month, the second is to pray Salah to Doha every single day and the third one and otira Koblin Ananda I pray water before I go to sleep, but again if you plan to create a habit, then you better wait until then insha Allah Jota Baraka what Allah what is the best time for salted water anyway, I showed Alana explained that she said mean Kula Lael, Salah Rasulullah is Rossum outer or sola sola sola sallam. He prayed waited from every portion of the night. What does that mean? We know that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he used to pray to head to every single night, although that's not recommended for us. But it was an
obligation on him because of Surah Al Muslim.
So the Prophet he had to pray to Hajj every single night. So therefore, if you've read his water, at the beginning of the night, middle of the night, the late portion of the night, what does that mean? From every portion of the night he prayed to hydrate as well. Some of us might say, well, I don't I don't know how to wake up before Fajr then you did make you do to make sure to hedge before you go to sleep.
Right before you go to sleep, the last thing you do is to pray to raka for Raka make them a little bit longer than usual. And then you pray your water and go to sleep. Some of us might say no, I usually work from home. So I am working International, you know kind of like whatever
business deals, so have to wake up sometimes after midnight, then Bismillah Go ahead, take benefit of that. delay your water when you wake up for your business, take a break half an hour or so or even wake up half an hour before that time in and do tahajjud do your water and then go start your business. Some of us might say no, I'd rather actually start my day early. So I go to sleep early. So you go to sleep early and you wake up quite before Fajr you wake up half an hour one hour before Fajr you do your tahajjud make your waiter and finishes you said the Prophet said Allah said he prayed water as late as the Sahara time. And the Sahara time is what is a pre pre Dawn actually our
it's a breed on our that's what we call a Sahara. And if you're afraid if you're afraid that you you're not going to be able to do the three raka for example that you usually do for water then do one one is sufficient and it's enough as promises are mentioned and the enabler of the ultra orthodox so one will be sufficient inshAllah autoboca data there are some technicalities here saying like for example what if I pray that water and then I wake up later on? So I'm done my I've done my water can I pray to you right now? The answer is yes, go ahead. Okay, but do I need to do water again? Or my first water was enough for me? No, do another water inshallah this should be fine with
the line as it should be. Okay. Shallow tan. And after you're done from your water. The professor's have used to say three times Subhanallah medical produce rubble. melodica tomorrow, there's actually continuation to that as well. So high medical produce Robert melodica to Aurora Subhanak medical produce Robert Marika. toaru so high medical produce Robert Mueller equity Waru and he actually extend the last one.
So if you can do that, after you finish with Inshallah, that will be good. Again, it's called Subhana medical produce. Rob bull mela equity Waru. So the first part means exalted is the sovereign Subhana wa Tada, the holy and the second part, Rubble Malaika to a row, the Lord of the angels and all the souls SubhanaHu wa now
the fourth way to do the night sleep the reason we have included this in the litanies Oh rod, is that with the observation of the proper etiquette, intention of sleep, it becomes worship or a bad minority aloha and who has said I seek her
bored with my sleep just a just as I seek reward when I am awake. The etiquette of sleep includes going to sleep in a state of ritual purity bajada so I shall know the Allahu Arnheim narrates that when when Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi salam wanted to sleep, he wouldn't perform absolution will do like that performed for the for prayer Salah. So before we go into the adverb of sleep right now the fourth word which is going to be actually a little bit explained in details, he said the fourth one is to sleep. Now, how sleep is considered part of the Dhikr I mean, he because he's speaking about portions of vicar, right, the spirit segment of the night they're considered
dedicated for what for a burden for worship and for dhikr How is he comes in sleep as part of your good deeds. In this case, he gave he gave the example because the reason we have included this and the rod of the night is because our dilemma even they taught us this, one of them is the Sahaba or the Allah, Allah when he says color in the latest one Allah He nobody can tell you about Allah Almighty, like I hope for the reward from sleeping, as much as hope for the reward from anybody from salah. Why because if I don't sleep, I won't be able to stand up to make that 100 So that's why he actually observed that now the Allahu Taala animal Olga, again, if you go and if you remember we
will talk about intentions from the book of
Mr. Raja Rahim Allah and also from the Saudi head. Here the intention matters the most. You have to keep your intention pure and clear. And making sure that when you go to sleep, you have that in your mind that you're Allah I intend to work for tahajjud so if you miss it, there are these are good reward for tahajjud insha Allah Tabata, Kota Allah, even if you did not do that, now Imam even for the 11th, Kodama Mo, Allah is going to explain a lot of the details of the etiquette of sleep, which is mentioned actually afterwards. The first one he says, and the Anam Allah taharah, that you may call do you make good you might say, but yeah, it's cold.
I'm afraid if I may go to I'm gonna wake up. Look, and that Musa mentioned Luca ferrata Hapa that experience the sins he says called a spa, who will do E, ll Makara. That you may go do spiders actually be hard and difficult for you to do that. Make a thorough will do even though it's hard and difficult and not easy for you to do that, then what is much higher in that situation over him. Now
what kind of weirdo is that, if you think that look, I don't really have the energy to make a full order, the thorough will then at least do the bare minimum, what is considered the larger which is what saying Bismillah and then you wash your hands. Then in wash, you wash your face, you wash your arms, then you wipe over your head and you wash your feet once each and you should be financial meltdown. The least that you do this before you go to sleep, you might say but I must sleep in five minutes so it's gonna be a waste of water you know it's not
it's an activity better and it's better for you to sleep on an activity rather and shout about a quarter
of the living in a house or do the law horn who said the spirits Ottawa, are ascended to the to heaven are ascended to heaven when they sleep. They there they are commanded to prostrate subdued by the throne out of those that are pure fall here, prostrate by a throne but those that are in our peer pressure far away from the throne, one should also repent before sleeping. Now this actually this etiquette that we'll see over here is it's from the statement of Abdullah and honorable asked himself is that not the words of the prophets of Allah salah, which actually brings the argument among the Allama. What how should we observe or view the statement of the Sahaba Rhodiola? Does it
have the exact same authority of the words of the Prophet Salah Salem. So the dilemma they say look, the Sahaba usually if they give something from animal hype, like something from the unseen world, definitely most likely it's coming from a source related to the prophets of Allah salah. Although it's speculation, though, but still, it's we take this as an authority as if they have done it say that on behalf of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam in Mali, but if they have given any hokum or rule, that's a different thing. And the other Allama they say no, that's just personal opinion based on their understanding from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam statement so therefore, whether this is
actually is a statement from the Prophet sasm or not, it was reported by Abdullah Imam Rama last Raja Allah Taniwha like saying, Look, imagine all these souls go to prostrate before Allah subhana wa Tada when they fall asleep. And if you don't have although you will miss him greatly. So that's why it says make sure to observe the hara before you go to sleep now.
He should also one should, one should also repent before sleeping for if one purifies his outer vial here. He should also purify the inner bath and after all, he might pass away in his sleep. He should also abolish it a bit before he can do so. Making sure that before you sleep just like your period
For your your the outside of course body, you need also to purify from the inside. And how you do that by cleaning the heart,
purify your heart from any ill intentions, any hard feelings, any grudge, anything. And if you have done anything wrong making sure that you repent to Allah subhanho wa taala. Because that could be the moment. That could be the moment when people just didn't wake up actually from their sleep. So therefore it says, make sure that at least make the intention before you go to sleep before you fall asleep, that you're repenting from your sins, sincerely, and genuinely better than that is to make the widow pray to raka second, Allah's forgiveness and then you go to sleep now,
he should also abolish any dishonesty which he might have in his in his heart towards a Muslim, he should not intend to wrong and Muslim nor be determined to sin after waking up. So he says like before you go to sleep, make sure that you purify your heart, again from all the grades that we talked about earlier. And he says the same thing to even having the intention if Allah gives you opportunity to wake up, that you start your day right, we shall altara without committing innocence. Now, if a person has something to request, he should not spend the night without having his will, without having his will is written with him. That's from the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam, if
you have something of a value that is worth written, and I will say yeah, you should actually write it down. Let's say you own a house, you own property, you have business, you have lot of cash, you owe people debts, all these things make sure that the written me should have written for you before you actually go to sleep at hamdulillah and our system today we have what we call a state planning. So if you have if you have a house, if you have property, there are businesses make sure to have an estate planning for you that actually acts like our CEO. So that may Allah subhanaw taala protect you or if someone dies, at least all these things are already actual written. So when it comes to
chicken, what they own, what they have, and all these things, it's already actually decided based on this estate planning that you have already there. So I suggest that for everybody if you haven't if you don't have it actually should really work on it Inshallah, to Allah to have an estate planning and have it actually signed and documented and kept and safeguarded. Inshallah with the water code that I'm gonna give you also if you're a Brahmin now, it occurs in the two serifs and the Hadith of Ibn Ahmad Radi Allahu I knew that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a Muslim who has anything with him to Will has no right to spend three nights except that as well as written with
him. He should not soften his mattress too much. Well, before we get to this point right before the mattress, is it obligatory that you write your essay before you go to sleep? The answer is no. It's not obligation. It's a recommendation from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. That's actually the armor or shard. So it's more like inviting the people to do the right thing, inshallah Tada, but if someone doesn't do it, they're still not considered sinful. Making sure that you have everything written because to safeguard the hook of the people in sha Allah, Allah. Now the matters. He should not soften his matters too much so as to make it overly comfortable as the only increases asleep on
the profits. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam matches was folded. He said, It softness hindered me from my prayer tonight. Now, I don't know what to say about this is that what matters we're talking about him. The prophets Allah says matters what was it anyway, the province has a mattress was barely a thin layer of whatever material they had back then most of their materials to be actually
palm palm tree leaves. They crumble them and they become like springs, and there's put them in a leather casing, and then becomes the mattress. So how thick is that going to be? Sometimes doesn't even have that material inside it's only just barely have some maybe material cotton or leather or whatever that is. So the Prophet says that when he sleeps, he sleeps almost like on the on the floor almost completely. And so one of those nights the reports it was have started the ultra Anna's house in which he visited.
And so she kind of like she had a large
maybe it was like a mat or something. So she fought that for the Prophet Salah Salem to make a little bit thicker,
a little bit thicker, how thick we're talking about doesn't matter how thick it is still considered thin for us, obviously. So that night, the Professor Sam wasn't able to wake up when when he wanted to work for tahajjud. So the next time when they're on have rotated again, and it came back to her she wanted to do the same thing again. He goes no, no, don't do this again.
Because last time I wasn't able to wake up. Now Marcela, right now for us, when you go to sleep, you have these huge, thick mattresses, and everybody's talking about how thick it is. It's just one foot and you have a layer on the top and a sponge on the top. And God knows what else to add to all of this just to get the comfort of sleeping Subhanallah
and that's the thing is that you this matters, martial law might be good for you to fall asleep, but it's not good for you to wake up. That's the problem because when you wake up you don't want to get out of it. Allama Stan, sometimes they're very soft that you actually have to some
Want to dig you out of it? The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to try to every now and then to experience the, I don't wanna say the harshness of reality but at least like I told his son, he says color Shoshana Fenn and that metadata do roughing up is it because this blessings don't last forever. So you're gonna have to be prepared. Otherwise if you're always soft and everything's Marshall has prepared for you and your food is warm all the time and you sleep mush and thick mattresses if you had to sleep on the formula make it easy for brothers as simple as they are. But I mean, they're doing this right now. That's the reality right now. Like many other people around the
world alarm, Stan Allah's will make it easy on the new Allah. So for us next time when you go to sleep and on the mattress, make sure to remember that I remember when used to actually practice martial arts that our master used to tell us that you need to sleep on the floor for the next few days. For example, I was like floor. I mean, yeah, we used to sleep on the forever you had a mattress thick mattress, is it? No, you didn't have to go on a prayer rug. That's it.
And why he says because usually, if you had to fight somebody,
that person could be more prepared than anyone. So you're gonna need to be prepared, physically. So if any condition happens, you already asked you to wait to get up and start you know, prepare yourself to defend yourself. So I suggestion every now and then try to sleep on the floor of your mind. Okay, but not because you guys are upset with each other and just because you're doing good the shelter for the exercise.
He should not sleep until he's about to fall asleep. For the setup used to sleep only when sleep overcame them. He should does that. What does that mean?
That's even the Anima they say that's part of the audible signal and some Alama they didn't have difference between day and night will come to sleeping. They sleep when they're tired. And they continue studying and learning when they're actually when they're awake like some other mothers or do we just kind of studying and then started to just fall asleep.
And then they get up and just feel like they continue with their with their work. So to have an eight hours or seven hours, six hours from this time to that time that's foreign to them. They don't have time to waste. But if you had to sit if you had to then fall asleep when of course we'll be overwhelmed. But remember, in our time unfortunately that doesn't happen easily. Why because people they stay up all night so when are you going to start feeling asleep in past midnight probably. And that's not going to be good for you to wake up for tahajjud not even for Fajr Salah so that actually if you're your sleeping habits are normal, then he has only sleep when you need to sleep. Not just
because I want to take 10 hours of sleep or extra hours depends on only sleep when you need to sleep now. He should sleep facing he should sleep facing the Qibla recite the supplications that occur in the narrations and sleep on his right side of a hotel Radi Allahu narrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when one of you goes to goes to his bed, let him dust off his bed with the inside of his lower garment for he does not know what came onto it after him. So this is actually two things right now the first one is that to blur. The first was the Cobra. Do you have the first dockable when you fall asleep? The answer is no. Do you have to turn your mattress or turn
your bed to face the cupola when you go to sleep on your right side? The answer is no. Is it okay when you sleep that your legs actually facing the Cobra The answer is yes. There's nothing wrong with that. There's some etiquettes and some cultural Eric has had no desire to offensive you shouldn't be doing that. But that's not actually the nothing coming from the center. It's okay. So you sleep and shoulder at least on your right side whether you're facing the cupola or otherwise you sleep on the right side making the dragon shallow Tara and may Allah subhana wa Tala Protect Your Beloved.
When he lies down he only only lies down he should say this week Allah home model Bo lokta Giambi will be cut out of Pharaoh who and M sector NFC for HANA well in order to have a hold her fafo Herbie Mata, Mata Mata Haifa Looby here you guys like a saw your name and your name my Lord I have laying down on my side and in remembering you I get up if you sees my soul and forgive me and if you release it and protect it with what you protect your righteous servants with so this right now is the beginning of the part what is going to be explaining some of the DUA and that code that you need to decide before you fall asleep. So we're going to continue with this next week and Sharla Tabata,
Kota Allah but this dua is the prophet Salah seven she says Bismack Allahumma Barbuda to Giambi or beaker Alpha who and I'm Secton FC for HANA when ourselves for that matter for the way by the Kosala hain. Here the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is teaching us that look, this is complete surrendering and submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala my lord in mine in your name, that I put my side on this matters and in your name, I rise and I come up if you will, to keep my soul with you which means take me from this world. Your Allah I asked her to have mercy on my soul. And if it is your will is to bring it back again and bring it back to life. Yeah Allah safeguard me just like you do
with the righteous a burden solid malice Tameka. Some of them are anatomy
So next week inshallah when we come back we're going to talk more about the actual as car what should you decide when you when you go to bed and we fall asleep in sha Allah Allah Allah
Allah move on to the next book inshallah
you're reading for us
Alhamdulillah Allah Allah ministered Allah wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to Sleeman Kathira to my bad we still reading from Hadith number 18. We're almost done with hate number 18 shallow trial in which the Prophet SAW Allah Salam gave us a roadmap for life when he said Salah Sam Farah, Allah Hi toma Can you feel Allah wherever you are? What we have said that has written always make sure to follow the good body with a good deed it will erase it for you. For harlot the master will follow can Hassan and treat people with good character? This is a part we need to talk about a little bit inshallah before we go to Hadith number 19 with Allah azza wa jal so
we're going to finish this part inshallah we are for those who have the book with them. On page three or four, three or four shallow Tara somewhere in the middle where he says his words Bismillah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. So otter Rama hula continues with the Hadith, his words sallallahu alayhi salam, and treat people with good character represent one of the qualities of Taqwa without which Taqwa is not complete. He only mentioned it separately because of the need to make it absolutely clear. Since many people think that Taqwa is to fulfill Allah's rights, but not his slaves rights. So he stipulated his command, to mod even juggle
to treat people well because he was sending him to Yemen,
to teach them knowledge and Fick and to act as a kadhi. So what is Rahim? Allah, Allah, Allah he says the Prophet saw Sam is suggesting right now, because of the NASA the whole of can Hassan treat people good character. Because many people when they think of Taqwa being righteous, what do you think about the only thing of devotional acts fasting tahajjud, Salah ADKAR, but unfortunately, they don't have the good manners, enough luck. How many people were heard of martial law, their Vita Baraka Rukmani. So huge and big, always come to the magic but they have bad o'clock at home.
Their spouse complaining their children complaining, they don't display the good of luck, that what they're learning from Taqwa is not reflecting the reflect on their children or their families in their personal life. So what's the meaning of that?
And some people will say mashallah, no matter how big and fancy the hijab is, or how much you practice of the deen, if that is not reflected in rough love. He says that what's the meaning of that, we need to make sure that we're part of Taqwa is also observing the rights of the people. And when the Prophet says, I sent my ad to Yemen, in addition to sending him, of course, to teach them about salah and Zika, and CRM, and so on, he also to make sure to treat them kindly. And he's going to explain why this is important. Now,
whoever is in such a situation is in greater need of treating people with good character than others, for whom people might have no need, and with whom he might not mix. So basically, it says, if you're a teacher, if you're a judge, if you're a leader, if someone ALLAH SubhanA, put authority in your hand over other people, you have more obligation to observe the rights of the people of openness and treat them kindly than anybody else than anybody else. Some people are just loners, they live with themselves. They don't deal much with people. So the obligation of treating other kindly is not really a big important thing for them. But others know they deal with people
regularly. So therefore, it's extremely important that they observe those records of the event, especially if you're a person of authority. Again, if you're a person of authority, you're responsible to observe that which is why the province has sent my will this advice. And obviously we have seen that from the Prophets Allah wa salam himself not many of those who are overwhelmed with concern for fulfilling their duty to Allah and devotion to his love to fear of him and obedience to Him. The neglect entirely the duties they owe to the slaves of Allah are fall short in them. So hello, I mean, even the same problem happened at time.
Raja Rahim Allah Allah right? Can you imagine he's talking about his time that many of the righteous people we know in our time, unfortunately, they do good things in terms of good deeds and devotional actions, but they for short will come to the duties of other people. They cheat them, they lie. They abused them, they hurt them, they look bad to them, all these other things upon Allah, can you imagine how ugly that is? So those who would like to be righteous, they have to understand part of being righteous means not just in the devotion act towards Allah subhana wa Tada. Also observing the rules, and the outcome and the rights of people now, to combine fulfillment of the rights or to
Allah. And the rights owed to his slaves is extremely demanding, for which only the most perfect of Prophets, most perfect of the prophets, and the entirely truthful ones, Sidney Kohn, are strong enough, he says that look, those who are no to treat people in the best manners, regardless what they get from them, are the prophets and the MBR. Which is true. If you look at the MBR, no matter what they did to the other people did to them, how do they behave with their people? Always steadfastness with righteousness with piety and with kindness with gentleness, Allah Subhana Allah spoke about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam I gave him the command called first for his self help
Jamil is you need to always observe the most beautiful level of forgiveness. Always confirm for Anamosa forgive them, pardon their mistakes keep moving on away from that. So Allah Subhana Allah is telling us about the prophets and then he said he Rahim Allah data, and then those who follow the example of the prophets, Allah says in surah Anam Cara erreichen, Medina Had Allah Feb. Moqtada, when he spoke about the prophets, and then he said, these are the one whom Allah world guided, so follow their guidance. So we are required to follow the example of the MBR. And if the example of Gambia is to forgive and kind with people, then that's something we should also observe in our
personal lives as well to remember, righteousness doesn't work without you being also good to your family, good to your siblings, good to your you know, children, to your spouse, to the people around you, all of them. Otherwise, we've fallen short on fulfilling that now. Now let's move on to the next part. So this is middle of page on page and the next page actually, the Proverbs regarding good character. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam regarded good character and as the most perfect quality of Eman, this very important message here is, look, personal follow is not just an act of worship, it's a fundamental aspects of faith. Like being a true believer requires for me to have
what good a flock and good manners being a true believer Gemma, and I can't help but Subhanallah as as we speak about this, we're going to come to learn more about that. But I can't help remember in
any one of the icons of the of the bravery of the people of Gaza. Subhanallah is Abu Hamza.
the reporter for Al Jazeera. You guys have seen his story probably right now online. Allah Mustang. He was tested by targeting his family first. He's lost his wife, one of his kids, and his grandkids and others. And then somehow they targeted him personally.
And he was injured, and then they targeted his son. Now if you look at the circumstances, it's assassination really, really this assassination just punishment for for him Subhanallah and this man, after every incident, he still stands up, you did nothing for him, but words of acceptance of Allah SCADA Allah's judgment subhanho wa taala. With good a flat and murdered he moves on and it just keeps at hamdulillah it moves it moves on. Now, I don't know what to say about this. Subhanallah that's truly is a manifestation of a man. That's a manifestation of a man right in front of you, with all what they've seen, and they're still holding on together keeping their integrity
and their dignity and remain steadfast on the path of goodness and righteousness. Never say anything but hon Allah. That is a manifestation of Iman and truly, these qualities come out during most excruciating circumstances. And Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and not to test us you're a Brahmin. But this is the case your Afla will come when when you're tested when you actually pressured the most. Some of us Marshal handle a very nice to each other over a mela particulars over many Fitzgerald Bananaman but when we are pressed at some point, that's when the gentleman Aflac, come up.
when they talk about how Aflac is so important, they say look, how do you know that people of color and manners? I remember Katara Dylon wanted to employ somebody for the Slamet for the state. So he said someone he asked the people he says anyone knows this guy. So someone volunteered. It was I do.
I'm a cop asked him he says, did you how did you interact with him for a long time?
Because now not not that long ago, okay, did you travel with him? It goes now, because it just did you deal with him with money? And it really did help him with money. Because no, not really. Because then sit down you don't know him.
So one of the things he suggested is what? Traveling with people. Why? Because when you travel and if you have seen the travel circumstances, sometimes the pusher buttons and they push us so hard, you're tired, you're fatigued, you don't you didn't sleep enough and you're hungry and, And subhanAllah a lot of people truly come out on those moments. So that's why it's considered a sign of Imam
Imam Ahmed and Abu Dawood narrated of the hadith of Abu Hurayrah. The Rohan from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, the most perfect of the movement are those who have the best character
Muhammad ibn Nasser, al mar Waze narrated it with an egg with the extra words that a man may be a movement, but there is yet something in his character, which is not praiseworthy. And that is a defect in his in his image this is a very dangerous statement on life. Allah it is very scary statement. Like you're working so hard on your Eman you wake up for for God worker for 200 You go to first Mondays and Thursday you give charity here and there and you try every devotion to raise your iman. But then you have a breach.
You have a breach somewhere in your slot and your manners. So you're struggling to become this mashallah highly spiritual person. And you're not getting there and you're wondering what's going on there? Why am I why am I not feeling my bad? Why am I not, you know, enjoying it. It's because you have a breach in a flock and your manners.
that open door that you leave behind when you treat people badly and you have a bad reputation at home and your your kids somehow or your spouse and all that kind of stuff. It affects the quality of your email. So if you really want you to demand to be at the best and the best way, make sure to work on a flat and you might as well too, because of luck and the man has as a professor submission over here called EC model many Imana like those are most perfect in their email as a Florida it was almost perfect in the master of luck. You want to perfect your Eman, then perfect your manager of luck and how you deal with people. No matter who they are. Make sure that you deal with them in the
best way shallow Tara called the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now
I've made I will download an essay and even more generated the hadith of Osama bin
Shahrukh wherein he said they said Messenger of Allah, some of them what is the best thing which the Muslim man has been given? He some Allah has said, Good character Nam feel going. The Prophet salallahu Salam informed us that the person who has good character attains by his good character. The degree of someone who fasts, extra optional fasts and stands in prayer with extra optional appears, particularly at night. So that the one who intends to have Taqwa should not be diverted from good character by fasting and prayer, thinking that it will cut him off from their merits. Now, that doesn't mean you're not going to practice your rebar and X ray but that doesn't mean to go lazy
and stop, you know, we can afford to hedge it. And so just I'm going to be good to my neighbors good to my co workers and whatever else. And that hamdulillah I'm gonna start to work ramen, raking the reward for the hedge Jude and fastly without even doing that stuff. You know what if you have that good intention in your heart for it, I asked Allah subhanaw taala already for Jeremiah Holloman. But that doesn't mean that you're not going to go and stand up with a hedge and making evidence. You need to balance all the time. You have your connection with Allah Subhana Allah to be sound and good, and your connection with everybody to be sound and good as well too. So this is extremely
important so that we don't confuse these two things. Now, if I'm adamant and I would, I would night it the hadith of Aisha Delana that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said,
the movement attains by his good character, the degrees of those who fast and pray. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that good character is the weightiest
thing which can be placed in the scale and that the person who has it is the most beloved of people to Allah, and the closest to the prophets in being seated in a place of honor. Imam Ahmed Abu Dawood and attend me the narrated the hadith of Abu darda rather alone, that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam
said there is nothing placed in the scales, which is which will be weightier then good character and the person who has good character will attain by IT degree of the person who fasts and praise.
extra optional fans and prayers. So spam as you can see, we'll put up Roger bruh Mr. Louder. He insists on speaking about this more and keep bringing the evidence and the proofs more and more to emphasize the importance of Huston Hello and good character. It doesn't matter how you see yourself in terms of your devotion act. He does all of this in comparison to good character good character, we weigh more in the scale as a prophet Salla said ambition. And and the other Hadith the Prophet SAW, as I mentioned, a credible community Madisonian MultiMax and camouflage, the closest to you, to me, the closest to me on the day of judgment among all of you are those who have good character.
What does that mean? Hmm. Imagine imagine in the soup of Al Jana, the soup of agenda which is the lobby of agenda you could say, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and all the acidity was sure that was Salah hemella Mecca Samadhi mera Bellarmine Alfa DOS, Allah Allah, those people who are in the highest levels of Jana, they come together with the other people of Jana,
the other people of Jana because how are we going to see the profit service to them? We're not at that level problem may Allah make us a mother and that level they are but I mean, but if lot other Allah someone fall short from there, how do you see the Prophet Salah Salem, they're going to come and those actually public gatherings in Ghana. Now you imagine right now the prophets are sitting there, how many people are going to be around the Prophet salaallah, Salah millions, billions. Allah knows right? Now imagine having that very special place somewhere there says you know, this is what the VIP people,
the VIP people, they will be escorted front of everybody to beg to bring them there to sit closer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam you have the mashallah the premium and he's sitting there and you have the beautiful view of the Prophet saw somebody in front of you and no one is, is in front of you, what a beautiful sight to be. And to be a god of the Prophet sallahu wa Taala was one of the means of attaining that is actually good for good manner and o'clock and character you can achieve that you can achieve that. She's going to have to learn how to do it and have certain some silver and steadfast is a shallow tomato that as a matter of fact, it's interesting that we talk about this
because the next Hadith will help us with this insha Allah azza wa jal winner later but since this is a very important topic, I want to really emphasize the importance of the subject of a flood and manners.
And we as the OMA the Muslim ummah, Winnie the the guardians of faith in this age in this time, you see people of other faiths, they're all compromised, almost everything. They compromise their theology, they compromise their our theta, their Eman, the practice of the deen and they even compromise their o'clock and their minds. Liberals the same thing they come and preach to us mashallah character and o'clock and the freedom and dignity and so on. And then comes you know, Epstein's list comes out of all these scholars and artists and politicians and guardians of the, you know, Western values, and they are in a schema or the biller to create every fifth now you can
imagine what kind of hypocrisy is. So for us that hamdulillah having that sense of o'clock and manners is 3d manifestation of faith as a believer. Displaying good character is part of your Eman and make sure to keep it that way. Don't think that what you do with people is light. Don't you do think that you know dealing with with good character of luck will will be accounted for. It could be the heaviest thing for you on the scale with the best ticket that you will have to take it not just to agenda to the premium seat there in Ghana to be around the prophets of Allah so Allah may Allah make us among them. You're blind. I mean, I know that we were supposed to be talking about the next
height but I'd rather shallow dalla stop here with Allah azza wa jal. So next week inshallah we will start with Hadith number 19. Because it's a very very important Hadith has been our best for the Allah and Allah Ya Allah in meanwhile him over Karima so we are going to discuss it in shallow data next week when the line as a now we'll go to the questions a shudder and answers
I don't see any question being posted yet. So if not, then
Well, the Why do you make Bahara before you go to sleep because once you fall asleep, what's happening, this will do
is gone, right? The idea is that when you fell asleep, you will not instead of a badass. So when you when you fall asleep you are instead everybody, which is basically the window that you had before you fell asleep. Just like when you recite ITIL kursi as part of the means of protection when you fall off before you fall asleep, more the moment you fall asleep, what happens
at handler the seal is still there.
But once you wake up, it's broken. That's why it's important when you open your eyes and then during the night, you decide agriculture again before you fall asleep one more time. But again, making the taharah is an activity by itself. So when you fall asleep, you're you slept on an act of a violent act of tar Walla
when you wake up after falling asleep, of course you're gonna make a fresh fool Tawana unless you're the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
lalala look the prophets Allah Sam was a bit different. Some Allah ma they say the Prophet SAW Selim, even when he falls asleep, he actually doesn't fall asleep asleep like us. Why? Because when the aliens are Bukhari and Muslim, that the angels came when the Prophet saw some was asleep, so they start talking about him. And then one of them he says, No, he's sleeping. The other one says no, no, no, he's not. So then the the abuse dispute in that he goes look in the line and I imitable called BioCarbon his eyes might be shot but his heart is awake, which is someone Dharma, they say that's why sometimes the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he will be actually resting and then we'll come
to call him for Salah. He gets up and he goes straight to Salah. So what Allah was ceremony but that's exclusive for the prophets of Allah Nielson, Milan.
So how to balance I have questions here right now, how to balance between voluntary Riba and giving time to family as they have right over us, especially when you are a student of knowledge.
Well, somebody's asking you, you're saying you're given the time for families here, but as well too, right? Maybe that's your wife, I don't know. Hola. Hola. Hola. But no, seriously, is obviously taking the time to spend with your family is also an activity. But we learned that from the Prophet Salla Sam to the practice of who, Salman and Faris are the ultra nwodo When he went to visit our data. One time I will sell manufacture See, so on the durda the wife of his friend Abdullah, she didn't look you know, well, it was everything okay? And you don't look well, like ladies who you know, they look nice to themselves but the spouses. She said, Well, your friend, Buddha, he has no
interest in this the pleasure of this life, like saying he doesn't approach us. He's always Marshall doing anybody that fasten them today that had to do him tonight. That's what he does. So Salman goes to visit I will die because of our data. I put some food for him. He goes, eat with me. He goes nothing fancy. Solomon says no, no, you need to break your face with me. So he had to break his fast with emanate with him. Then when the night came, he just wanted to sleep an hour that wanted to wake up he goes no go to sleep. So his guest enforcing the host to sleep. And then sometime during the night, he woke him up because now we can get up for 200 But then he told him he said Look, listen.
articular they can haka. Give each the hug that is due to them. You need to make sure that you live that moment. So this is my advice for the for those who asked the question where live the moment what does that mean? When you when you are spending 15 minutes with your family? What do you need to do?
Focus on your family. Take your phone out of your hand, the removal of distractions. It's not about watching TV now be with your family in that moment. When it's time for you to go to the masjid focus on going to the masjid but instead of spending an hour during the magic, you should spend half an hour on domestic making the Salah and then the Halacha meet with your friends say Salaam and then go back home to spend some time with the family you know before they go to sleep for example. So after Kula they have to Hakka when it comes to making balance. It's not about making baths it's about making priorities. If you put your life in the right order of priorities, I guarantee you you will
create balance but if you don't have your priorities done right, you will always miss that balance now
is weighted obligatory according to the majority is considered the majority of UCLA I mean it's considered sooner termica similar to Makkah, which means the highly recommended acts of sunnah according to the Hanafi school the concert wajib and therefore if you miss it actually do be considered sinful
if you had to choose between two friends one with excellent o'clock but lacks and their Salah hijab and other four verses one who is perfecting the Rebbe, but can be a little rough on the edges. Who should we pay?
was the one who was rough on the edges and tried to soften them and shallow the Word of God and polish them in the lasagna would then say hi Nicola actually, I don't want to say any choose I will suggest that you deal with the each one of them in the way that is required. So that sister that she doesn't have the event and under then your job is to invite her for the but underneath be in good terms with her as long as it keeps you hamdulillah safe in terms of your email. But if being around this individual is gonna start making you feel less practicing because you start becoming role lacks with your Eman and practice well, like they do then that's dangerous. Just like being with somebody
who's martial are very religious, but they're rough they can push away from the banner. So both of them are actually I would say, require from you some attention according to the flag and then minus Now
what does this all do when we when we sleep? They have Fatima.
Now, the prophets as I mentioned the Hadith that when that when we go to sleep, our souls depart from our bodies partially, not fully. How Allah Allah and that's Adam and I live in Ottawa is different than the material world that we live in. We live in a very materialistic world that this is actually the materialistic world is limited in terms of its characteristics and qualities. If I asked you to imagine this spin, imagine this spin outside of space, land and water. Can you do that?
You can't you limited with space time and all the other stuff, right? But Urawa they have all different characteristics when Allah subhanaw taala answered us about the meaning of a rule he says so Luna can rule
if they own Robbie so when asked Will they ask about the rule it's from the marriage of a rule so Allah subhanaw Mata only so therefore we don't know how it is so we don't know how it functions and operates but the profit systems that are why they actually roam around and then when you when it's time for you to wake up you know, they come back again immediately which is why sometimes moment people they say they see this moment of deja vu moments where this happened because maybe allawah they are exposed to some item of the future the world of the future will love that item now
isn't there a word here that says that we're trying to feed ala that's true there is no should be no water and one single night you're not supposed to pray to return one signal. However, if you had the intention to go to sleep and then you wake up with a hedge with the professor ism also said is that Assata Kumba Lena withdraw. Let's let the last thing be that you pray is water. But I only done water before but now I have to pray to hedge it because I don't want to miss the opportunity of being up at night right? So in this case, we make the water shallot right after
how do you how do you properly develop good character while people continuously misjudge your intentions? Who cares?
If you're doing it with the right intention 100 Then you're good. Now if you think that you're doing it for the right intention, then ask as someone says look, this is what happened. Did I do the right thing? Did I am I really being wrong here. Make sure that you do have the good intentions so that you might miss judging people when they try to talk to you or even correct you Allah
how to deal with those around you who belittle your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. It's not easy to be patient in terms of people below you and the kind of muslim you are. Imagine the Prophet sallallahu sallam. They didn't just in a belittle his relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. They deny them even their religion to begin with. And he still remains steadfast and the Sahaba as well too. That's your test. May Allah make it easy for you.
At what point do we stop practicing good o'clock when an abusive person says let's say your spouse takes advantage of one's good character for example, look, having good o'clock good manners doesn't mean you're weak. Now, it's when you're capable of taking revenge, but it shows the path of forgiveness. If you have no option other than just being submissive, that's not good luck anymore. You're just being defeated right now. You have the practice good of luck when you have the opportunity to do something else and something different. So in this case, what do I do? Seek justice if you want to. If someone abuses you, you can seek justice that's up to you. And Justice
sometimes demands word that use this use basically kind of like decisive discipline in that regard. Even the Prophet sallallahu sallam was good at law and manners. When he was pushed, he was able to establish actually to put basically the sword in its place. Like one of the Hadith the CRO the Prophet, Salah Salem was making throw off around the camera, and the machine was sitting under a ledger just smile. The first time the Prophet came around, they start insulting him, like mocking him and assaulting him and abruptly
Doesn't he kept quiet and he kept making Tawaf second time did the same thing. Third time they came to him and they start insulting him. The Prophet said, Allah said what did he do?
He stopped his tawaf walk straight to these people. And he tells him said, yeah mashallah polish. Listen to me people have courage. Am Allah Allah do to
listen, I can I can, I can make a bloodbath of if you want to.
Like simply like I can kill you. And they know that when a Mohammed says something, he can make it happen, because he had his own tribe as well, too. So that's when they said, like our customers were so sorry, this foolish people just spend the you know, just making nonsense. Don't worry about them. You're fine, you're fine. And the professors are making stuff off. And the zipped it from that moment. Now he didn't act on what he said. He didn't act on it. But he said, Look, I'm very nice. But listen, if you want me to be tough, I can be tough with you. And that's the meaning of family Good luck when you're capable of acting otherwise, but you choose to practice good Medicine Buddha's
law, that's when it matters the most. So therefore, yeah, if someone decided to disobey Allah subhana wa Taala in the way they treat you, then you need to obey Allah subhana wa taala. And the way you treat him back that's how I deal with the people. No matter what.
We you mentioned that you do the bare minimum when you're lazy to do follow before sleeping and include the Bismillah as well does that mean not saying Bismillah invalidates will don't know, the best one is not part of our camp that can begins from the washing, washing the face actually and then wash your arms wiping over your head and washing the feet. This is our kind of the widow in addition to of course to the
the order to bake in that in that way. And also have an intention for these are the six outcomes of the model. But like I said, if you don't have time with the energy to make the follow, just make the bare minimum at least to be on top and Shalonda.
We understand this as well.
If I come to measure to pray Maghrib Denisha but Gemma starts praying Aisha is it better for me to enter the pray with them or the digital raesha like of course you need if you're the mystery should Maghrib then join the imam or Dasha and then you can make up your mind afterwards.
Well, louder furniture we'll see you next week with the Lazarus panic alarm 200 Shadowland stuff we'll go to work Samadhi equanimity Lavaca
