Salah Salem Baraka buna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama bad. So welcome back to our top seal class in which we discussed the first the boogey man we will Kodama Rahim Allah Tala, Mata sermon, Hajj al Cassadine. Our discussion is going to be continuation in sha Allah Tala of the book of the etiquette of eating and food section three so if you guys remember from last time we started talking about the etiquette of eating in JAMA AND CONGREGATION when you're invited to people's house when two people were allocated to observe by washing their hands and how to use your hands or left hand to take things out of your mouth for example, you cover your mouth

00:00:38--> 00:01:03

when you take something out of it all is going to indicate that we learned together in regard to drinking as well too and so on. Today inshallah Allah as continuation of the etiquettes of eating in Gemma as well to another level the Alpha when you are the one who has been invited to someone's house, what are the etiquettes of being and the hospitality of others so shall we start with when you join people in their house, inshallah Tabata Katana Bismillah?

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

government property,

00:01:15--> 00:01:40

nobody should go to the people if you know that there are I mean, even if he does not know this and try to be in a situation and delve into that. He knows that they only asked him not to try and you should not be left he knows that they really want to do it. That is Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Now, the first thing is that from the title not entering upon people who are eating what does that mean as your man

00:01:42--> 00:02:20

if you know that this is their dinner time, don't go knock on their doors. If you know this is their Iftar breakfast time, or maybe their lunchtime, do not knock on their doors, right? Wait until it time enough to be over, and so on. However, if they asked you to come at a specific time, and then you knock on their door, they open the door, you can tell the you know the person is open to still chewing you know, food or maybe wiping off the grease from the hands of their mouth. What does that mean they're eating. Now they're going to tell you to come in. So should you come in or should say I'll come back later. The other they say the other is not to get in the habit is to try to resist

00:02:20--> 00:02:56

them by saying you know what, I'll come back later. Michelada I'll come back later. But they insist on you to come in. And then you need to realize that they're having food together, they're eating food right now. If they tell you come on, and you look at the situation, where they're eating together as a family, and now because you came in so let's say the ladies they left the room left the table because you can tell the number of cups the number of plates maybe if they had different plates and so on, you can tell that some of the family members had to cut had to leave the table. So in this case, you try your best not to participate unless you know that they will be pleased.

00:02:56--> 00:03:35

They'll be pleased for you to share a meal with them. Why should you accept in this situation, so that they don't take this as an offense against them? Or think that you're too good for them to eat their food? Or you're too arrogant to eat their food so in this case you participate and the LMI they say you look at the food if you realize that food hamdulillah is plenty eat your satisfaction. But if you realize that food is not enough, it was not enough to everybody for everybody so what do you do it a little bit to satisfy the request of your host and this is like Allah Al Hamdulillah I'm done. That should be okay. But again do not insist on going where they usually actually eating their

00:03:35--> 00:03:35


00:03:37--> 00:04:19

There is a very famous actually folklore joke about Jehovah I don't know if you guys know Johannes, Jehovah is like lug nuts so did it to see they call him and he is known to be like a prankster. So he said one time Joe he sold the house. He sold his house and then as he was selling the house he made a clause in that contract with the people who bought the house from him that look he said I have this nail and that nail was in one of the rooms in the house the living dining area because this nail belongs to my great great grandfather he put it over here and it's very sacred for us so I can't leave it I request that you never remove it. Also I have the permission to visit anytime I

00:04:19--> 00:04:53

want. Like I have to visit and just check on this on this nail and that people said sure of course come on and annual Santa Now why would why would you hide you they come in the morning he knocks on the door that we were having breakfast. Oh come on in Come on in. No no no, no Hello sir. Come later. So you guys know you should come in. So he comes in to cry on that nail and then eventually they tell him to come and eat. He goes sure sure he is within breakfast. He's got to come in for lunch and you come in for dinner. So obviously it's obvious why he put that nail in there. So eventually the people just got fed up with it and just took all that name and just throw it out.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Forget you and you'll never get out of here. Right. You don't be like Juha knowing when do people have their dinners and just knocking

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

Those ones that haven't their their their breakfast or their lunch you need to make sure your chose the time wisely inshallah tell now

00:05:14--> 00:05:55

what does that mean part of the etiquette if you come into someone's house, because he asked you to come and you went there and he was not he was not there. Now, this is sounds a little bit awkward in our households here because the way the house are built in the in this society, open spaces, there is no exclusively guest guest area that is completely cut off from the entire house. But if you go to Muslim countries, have you ever been to Gulf countries, they have a specific area in the house called a deewani, or the one that they want, or the one here, even actually, it has an exclusive exit from the from the Main Street. And in some countries, I grew up in Kuwait, and I've seen its

00:05:55--> 00:06:05

Paladin and said, also Medina, were some people out of generosity, they keep the outdoor open, that doors is open. anytime of the day or the night.

00:06:06--> 00:06:41

You could just come in, you want to crash to take a nap, you can come in, you get in there, you will find coffee, you'll find dates. And if you need food, someone might come actually and serve you. So they had they had that kind of arrangement. So those arrangement probably that's what a man with the Lord even put them on a hammer, Allah is actually referring to, you come to your friend's house. So you stand that you want, for example, which is away from the main section of the house. And obviously, they don't want you to wait too long. So they want to present food for you usually will say No, I'll wait for my friend to arrive. But if you know that your friend is gonna get upset for

00:06:41--> 00:07:03

you, you know, take them holding off on eating until He comes. Then in this case, if you know that your friend will be happy and pleased that he honored you. And he ate your food even though you're not there, then you should eat the food. So when he comes Alhamdulillah his heart is at ease that the guests were served. That was that happened to Abba Casa de corte de la talaga over close the deal.

00:07:05--> 00:07:19

Well, you know, hello sofa, hello sofa, the poor residents of Medina. They didn't have homes to go to so they usually live in the backside of Medina, vista de la Santa Maria, their leader was there holy there was Ebola, the Alon.

00:07:20--> 00:08:02

So every few days, the prophet Salah Salem will ask the Companions it says whoever has enough food, take two or three people with you, like host one or two people with you to get take them on. So because today is one of those nights, he got some people with him, and he brought them home. Then he told his son, he says make sure that they eat. Let me go and get some other things. And our work also did he left. So when the food was ready, and they were served the food they refused to eat before the host of workers arrives. So they waited. And they were waiting and waiting. And our worker said he didn't he didn't expect them to be waiting for him because he told his son feed them

00:08:02--> 00:08:38

and let them go. But they insisted not to eat until a backer study comes first. So when a worker said they arrived, it was already after a shot which was way late miss a been waiting for hours problem. So when he arrived, they found him there. And he goes Did you guessed it? And they said no we're waiting for you. He's looking for a son who was hiding because anyone his father comes is going to be basically take a beating because of this. He was hiding so when he grabbed him he's kind of like holding him and scolding him for why did you why did you have them wait so long? Why don't you feed them when they arrived first, because the hospitality is at the beginning of the arrival

00:08:38--> 00:09:16

obviously, he kept telling us that I try they didn't want to eat until you come eventually he brought them the food and he starts calling the guest as well. It it may you this menu that just eat and just get out there. So that's if you know that your host would love for you to consume the food and eat it even in their absence. You should actually eat that food. But if you know that they would like to join the company with you then you wait for them until they arrive inshallah or maybe you yourself say I'll come back again. I'll go around for something and I'll pick up something shall be back in an hour or so making sure that your host will be there to receive your shahada now

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

because the Bucha one is

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

not the same as

00:09:27--> 00:09:31

one of the protesters concerns concern only to God here in person.

00:09:34--> 00:09:58

Year so by double dare for right now we're talking about okay if you're going to be inviting people over who are these books should be eating your food. It says here make sure that those who eat your food are lactea the righteous ones do not first up Don't Ask Don't invite those who are confirmed unfortunately shameless sinners which means openly sinners. Obviously if you're gonna apply this rule today Gemma was gonna happen

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

Who's the righteous Allah understand? I mean, we talk about different generation different times, right? So we try our best when we invite our friends, we invite them with the assumption and hopefully the good assumption that they're good people, right? We're invited because we think of them higher hamdulillah at least they come to the masjid mashallah they attend the program, they come to the Halaqaat. So we assume that hide with them, but to say that they're at Thea. I don't even know if I'm talking. So it's not about you know, having a special measuring tape to set up the or not or how high their Taqwa is, we will never be able to measure that. But at least we'll have

00:10:35--> 00:11:11

the good assumption about the believers. They're good at handling our beloved. But if you know that people are just shamelessly you know, kind of with their fists and their Fedora, they post their their sin online and they go about it all over the place. Those are the people that you avoid really bright, bring them over. And the Hadith. The Prophet says himself Allah katajanokka Illa lead to Sahib LM Amen Mina, what is called Tamika letter B, when you when you befriend somebody, befriend those who are righteous, because again, the righteous will rub off on you what I call Tamika Ella Taffy don't feed except someone who's righteous. Why is that? Why would the LMI they say that it's

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

better for you to have someone who's righteous to eat your food.

00:11:17--> 00:11:22

Their food will have more Baraka, what else they may do for you, as well. Yeah, right what else

00:11:25--> 00:11:31

they will probably maybe again, the righteous will rub off on you with some evidence that might come out of that advice you get from them, what else you could get.

00:11:35--> 00:12:07

Their D, they'll handle they do because of the food that you ate and Hamdulillah you get reward for it, because you give them the power then the nutrition for it. And also as well, when they when they when they're there. They're not going to be picking on your food and your plates and your service and you know all that they're not going to be worried about that stuff. They're not focused on the dunya matter of the of the meal. So they're just gonna eat and enjoy the company. And that's it. So that's why says that, yeah, make sure that those who come to your household to eat your food, people who will appreciate and you will benefit from them as well to shell out our

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

invitations. That

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

doesn't mean you cannot invite the rich.

00:12:17--> 00:12:55

Of course you can. I mean, it's okay. But he says Men don't make invitations exclusively for the rich people. And unfortunately, it does happen. Sometimes you go to certain invitations, you only realize only the elitist that are there and in these invitations. Now again, it's not necessarily haram to do that, especially if ALLAH blessed you to be among the affluent members of the community of the society. So when you invite your friends who are they're going to be pulling from that group. So he says that as you invite your friends of that class and that group, perhaps you take into consideration some of your family members, some of your neighbors will not at that level, but invite

00:12:55--> 00:13:05

them over for the sake of actually having the baraka of having the humble people among these gatherings. At least they will remind you with hamdulillah with something higher in sha Allah Jota Baraka with that now

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

when it comes to those things, in the formality

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

of the breakdown,

00:13:15--> 00:13:50

and familiarity so basically it says that when you invite don't forget about your relatives, you know, sometimes unfortunately, our kindness go to our friends and neighbors more than our our relatives, our blood relatives, because blood relatives, sometimes they have a lot of feuds among themselves. So they don't invite their brothers or sisters or sister in law either. They don't invite them. Rather, I invite my closest neighbors because at least 100 They appreciate me more. This is no, you kindness should go to your relatives first. And even if you're not in the best terms with them, that should not prevent you from being kind to them, or at least offer the invitation so

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

they could come in shallow Darla and share a meal with you and your family.

00:13:55--> 00:14:13

A pitcher observe in order to keep an origin about any writing is friends and acquaintances. And let's not invite people in order to write mobile mobile app. And those that have poor imitation should be to implement the centrifuging colors in reading the cards.

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


00:14:19--> 00:14:29

Now, so he says when you start inviting people, obviously, make sure to keep things in no specific order, like who's the one who deserves to be invited first and

00:14:30--> 00:15:00

what benefit you get from them. And then the most important thing about this whole invitation is not to brag about it rather to do and follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam inviting other people and when the prophesies themselves but when he was asked about a unIslamic prayer, which is of the act of Islam, our best one of them he said Salah said I'm kind of I'm a bomb. He said if I'm a bomb to feed the poor, I'm gonna feed the poor actually to feed he said a bomb a bomb. Some of our dilemma they say this feeding meaning x

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

See the needy but other mothers interactive feeding in general feeding NGO which means share meals with other people because we know how beneficial that could be when you share it with other people Subhanallah bringing breaks a lot of barriers you know when you break bread with people you become very informal with them you become close to start having bonds with them and that's the whole purpose of this. The other thing is obviously is following the example so Allah who always brings guests with him whenever he Salah seldom meet somebody who brings them with him home and say enter contam we have food to offer to the guests Allah Tala he was ALLAH mu Ali. So our our intention

00:15:38--> 00:15:47

should be actually when we bring people over to limit the Sunnah of the Prophet before anything else. And when we accept the invitation also, what should be our intention?

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

Go explore different cuisines

00:15:52--> 00:16:09

is that Halal intention Gemma? It's a halal intention. There is nothing wrong with that. But the main thing that we should focus on is worth accepting the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim by accepting the Dawa, following the Sunnah of the Prophet accepting the Dawa, and the invitation to come and participate in these in these matters now.

00:16:17--> 00:16:48

No, like what I mean, don't don't make it too hard on people who cannot come if you know that someone is not gonna be able to come Don't keep insisting on them. No, you should come you should come. I don't I can't. I travel a lot I have program until five I can't come until this time understand. Do not insist on them. If it's hard, make it easy on them. And if you could of course bring them over then at least in this case, you offer them the meal in their home at least you just send them the food to their home and that should be okay inshallah Tada now.

00:16:56--> 00:17:07

So that says Like when it comes down to accepting invitations, one of the most important invitation that you need to accept is VR and when invited to a wedding, I think even Kodama rahamallah speak about their weddings

00:17:09--> 00:17:52

are what instead they are a bit different, unfortunately, in terms of what happens there from the Muhammad and maybe some of sins and I think that's an appropriate activity. That's one thing second also the extravagance that could happen. I mean, subhanAllah I've had I've attended some weddings not here in some Muslim countries before Yanni. And Allah I you feel so and so awkward at the amount of food that go to waste, because of these invitations of hamdulillah when I was in Medina was invited to a wedding over there. And I was so pleased when I was coming through the banquet hall to see vans in the parking lot lined up next to each other. And the there was a special organization

00:17:52--> 00:18:29

that exists in money and I think it still exists until today and maybe in other cities right now. It says ledge net.com This is a specific organization that takes care of the the leftovers, or the excess food is excess food, not that food has consumed no any trays that will not use any food that was not used. Eventually they box it and they put it in specific trays, these vans, the immediate they take it at the end of the wedding and they drive around in the neighborhoods, they have a specific list of homes and they deliver the food to them. And I'm like that makes it easy for me to eat. Because if I knew that this was gonna go to waste I will just feel completely completely

00:18:29--> 00:18:52

awkward about just even participate in that kind of event. But if you know that these things that hamdulillah have the right etiquette then definitely accept but if you're going to go there and you're going to be forced to participate something haram and so on, then in this case, just do your duty to go and say Salaam and give you a grand congratulations and you could stay outside or even actually go back home Mallanna

00:19:01--> 00:19:11

So here are three things you mentioned here so if you are invited don't always accept the invitation of the rich life because you know when the rich invite you or they're going to invite you to mashallah they're going to invite you to

00:19:12--> 00:19:55

a mansion or even a ranch or something like that. So there is a an experience comes with that. But the poor Amen. I don't want to waste my time sitting to eat what I'm usually to eat at home. No, except the invitations from both. That's that's important. The second thing. So if you're fasting, don't always say no, no, no, no. Sometimes if you know that accepting the invitation of someone who calls you to come for food is going to be more beneficial to them and to the whole maybe experience there then you fasting for a day of Mondays and Thursday. Then you better go and break your fast and participate with them. Let's say a friend some people they invited people because they come from out

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

of town and they're going to be for that day only. So you're gonna go there and you

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

Number One their their meal. Why? Because you're the only one who was fasting and it's early in the day it's brunch for example. If it was dinner after after I hear you don't break your fast

00:20:11--> 00:20:25

join them stay with them let them eat their food and then you break the fast after murder but if it was early in the day, then it's better for you to break fast join the congregation in shallow Tara and to handle you got your reward for for the day even if you didn't continue the first of that day now

00:20:32--> 00:20:33


00:20:37--> 00:20:38

what if you don't know?

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

What if you don't know?

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

You know if it's haram or halal, do you? Do you go you don't go?

00:20:47--> 00:21:04

As a man, a brother comes to the masjid you praise next year for Russia and Fajr invite you over for food. Now, I'm not really sure. So I don't have to investigate. They have to ask him he says whether we're Where do you work? Do you work for a bank?

00:21:06--> 00:21:13

Or ask him where do you get your meat from? A US guy or otherwise? Are you going to ask these questions? The answer is no.

00:21:14--> 00:21:55

But if you know if you yourself know before you had the knowledge from before this person for example has dealings is not appropriate. And this is haram. Their money is haram still though still though, the opinion we learned from before if you guys remember that it's okay for you to accept the invitation. It's okay to accept the invitation and eat that food and the sin is on them not on you. It's on them for earning it but you are consuming it in a halal way which is the invitation that you've been asked for however, if refuse the invitation has a value by giving them basically like a scolding them a reminder for what they need to do about their earnings and so on any problem maybe

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

you should actually refuse that invitation. But if it doesn't make any effect and accept and and make sure to do the right thing with the Michelle alta.

00:22:09--> 00:22:14

What does that mean exactly? If you're invited to a place where you know that they're going to have haram furniture what's what's unlawful furniture is?

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

What is unlawful furniture?

00:22:21--> 00:22:28

Statues? Yeah, for example, they have valid say, carvings of statues and their furniture for example, what else?

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

He will I know he mentioned something about the furniture itself. How about Silk.

00:22:36--> 00:23:07

Having mattresses, for example, cushions made of silk you can sit on sell for instance, that's what he means by that. Or vessels gold or silver. So you can't eat and gold or silver vessels or fluids, which means what music instruments being played in that in that meal and so on. So, because if that's the case, then you better avoid accepting these invitations and let them know, let them know you know, the reasoning why in a polite manner. Or if you didn't know until you arrive then in this case, you don't have to leave unless the Haram is very obvious and clear.

00:23:08--> 00:23:25

It's very obvious unclear. I lost time one time. It's interesting thing. A brother invited us to go I don't I don't know him very well. So he invited us to come to eat in a restaurant in the area where they live. So we went for dinner and it was dinner or lunch. I'm not sure.

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

When we arrived over there as we were eating him a lot of I mean, suddenly suddenly I noticed there's a there's

00:23:33--> 00:23:41

an ad or some sort of like a page that they put out the door. I'm reading this I'm selling Oh my god. They're gonna have better dents in here.

00:23:43--> 00:24:10

And I'm like, stop for Allah. Brother. For you bringing us man. Because until we look at the time I got hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah we're gonna finish army before this whole party start. Sir says God man, don't take a breather here again, please. Allah, it was for the heart. But Subhanallah at least we can we can we can before they started their party. So so if you know that you're going to go that we face these kind of things that obviously haram you leave, don't stay there now

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

seeing a scenario, in a major

00:24:22--> 00:24:39

imitation of legend, so that's basically he's talking to you if you have that special status for them. Like sometimes the violin, the oppressor, the shameless sinner and the innovators and Motorin when they invite you what exactly they seek and from that invitation

00:24:40--> 00:24:41


00:24:43--> 00:24:59

Just like when some people they want to take a picture with you. And they want to take a picture exclusively, you know, in a specific place. So to show the people that you were here or you were with me and we had a meal together. So if that volume oppressor or that facet is intending with that, you know that kind of meal

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

To show off, and make sure that they get the validation from the people that look, if chef Milan comes to my place, who are you to say no. Right? So in this case, you better avoid given that validation.

00:25:11--> 00:25:46

You're avoiding that valid, what's what's going to be maybe cause me troubles that that bond and that oppressor might go after me for example, but it depends how you measure it case by case scenario. And if you really realize that Hamdulillah, Allah Subhan is always the protector, you do your best, and try and shallow data to accomplish that which is right. Similarly, if someone was Muqtada, which means someone who has a Buddha something who someone famous for something that's running against the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we should avoid these people who want to do as well as someone who's Mufasa which means they only invite people just to boast about it, just

00:25:46--> 00:26:05

like a trophy things so they take pictures and just want to show the world who was in their house who came to their food for example. So there is no higher than not inviting you for your companionship for the height that you bring with you or the gathering is a blessing that hamdulillah they have their ulterior motives in this case don't give them that validation stay away from that now

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

just because of

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

the intention

00:26:13--> 00:26:16

and Andre is

00:26:17--> 00:26:18


00:26:21--> 00:26:21


00:26:24--> 00:26:26

to do again was put together

00:26:27--> 00:26:49

the design so like we said you know some people that might misunderstand why you're refusing the invitation oh you're too good for us for example, oh my god, they don't like to eat our food or they think they're there were so poor with lower standard to theirs or just because you're too arrogant you know, although the reason might be actually because you have some diet issues health issues, but they don't want to expose themselves

00:26:50--> 00:27:17

they don't want to tell you I'm diabetic or I don't eat these things or I'm have a sensitive stomach they don't want to expose themselves so therefore we also need to have has not done with our brothers and sister when they refuse our invitations we'd always assume that they don't like you know food or they hate our gatherings just simply handler have has not done in your situation if you can afford going and participating even if it was a little bit then avoid Sovann by accepting that invitation and participate inshallah Donna

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

position is the owner of the

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


00:27:28--> 00:27:45

so what does that mean over here? That means if when you come home the Prophet SAW Allah Salam he even says in the Hadith that if if the host assigns a place for you to sit in then you should accept that like sometimes you get you come to the the living area and the host wants you to sit and the prize seat

00:27:46--> 00:28:09

if they insist if they want you to sit there just sit there at the beginning obviously you're gonna say no, this is yours. If they volunteer this seat for you then you should sit there because they know why maybe they have another reason for that besides honoring you and being kind to you maybe because it's actually facing the direction to keep the house private. So therefore you to accept that unless of course next point he says okay, hey

00:28:16--> 00:28:32

so that's one of the things if you're sitting somewhere that exposes the entire house you bet even if it was the prize seat you better actually request to move from there. Let's say the host wants to sit in this martial offenses chair fancy chair Yeah, but sitting there is going to make you see the entire you know,

00:28:34--> 00:29:06

the only house and the entire maybe second floor so when the family moves around you'll be able to see so in this case part of the oven etiquette is that you the modesty is to request from your host if you don't mind I want to move over there they said no, no, you I want you to sit away this is this is better for you. So if you don't mind I would love to sit over there and if they insist on you, you let them know look you know what sitting here makes me you know kind of like expose the household for me I want to just inshallah set another side in this case it hamdulillah unless they insist on you to sit there maybe because that position regardless what's exposing maybe it's hiding

00:29:06--> 00:29:21

something else from you like what if you sit in that direction you're gonna see the other side of the wall is actually there cracks in the windows are some things or leak or this or that. And part of the other Allamah they say when you come to someone's house don't look around

00:29:22--> 00:29:32

in our culture that's the opposite you come to the houses like oh my god. Wow, this is amazing. This look oh, by the way, there's a spider web over there if you haven't seen it yet.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

That's the time we live in today. But in the past hour, Allah mother will say up to you, you keep your gaze down, you don't look around. So you only look where you are. That's it. You don't look up to see whatever's in the walls and just look where you're on unless of course the horse has asked me hey, look, we brought this here. For example. What do you think of this? How does it look here? In this case, you participate with them, but part of the other is always to conceal the out of people's households and

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

and was Allahu Daraa inshallah we're going to stop here within Azerbaijan and next we will finish next week and Shall we finish the last chapter from this time of Tao Calcutta without a man shall not Anna

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

Alright, book number two

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

Hadith number 21

00:30:46--> 00:31:24

handler of bloglovin so Allah wa salam Baraka, Viera Muhammad wa ala alihi wa Salatu was Salam, the Steven Katha mama bad so this hadith that we have tonight inshallah Tara is the shortest Hadith in this collection, the shortest Hadith in the collection, but one of the most important in terms of its message, and I want you to pay attention to it because the question that was asked to the Prophet SAW said was very profound, very, very profound. This headed headed number 21 is answerable Abdullah Radi Allahu wa Taala call to aerosol Salalah ko li fille Islamic colon la Allahu Ahad un HighRock kala coolamon to Billahi for stratum of the generation so most of them actually the Arabic

00:31:24--> 00:31:35

text is wrong on this one actually there is there a typo it's supposed to be cool I meant to Billa thumb mustard some stuff wrong Muslim read the Hadith in English

00:31:40--> 00:31:40

so when

00:31:43--> 00:31:48

I said messenger a lot stating something which I want to ask anyone other than you

00:31:54--> 00:32:17

so what is this head is all about as short as it sound here obviously I'm gonna go over the height and gender we start to shut it down with a man we've been Raja Rahim Allah has added to it. So if you haven't Abdullah the Allahu Allah came to the Prophet sighs I'm Carla Rasul Allah bullyville Islamic colon, let us let us go ahead and bother telling me something about Islam, about which I will not ask anyone other than you. What do you guys think of this question?

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

What does that mean here? What is he asking the Prophet Salah Salem for him?

00:32:24--> 00:32:29

He's asking for an exclusive request, right? Like a very profound same until summarize Islam for me.

00:32:31--> 00:33:12

He said jasola Could you please give me the summary of Islam? Like I don't need to ask anyone after you. This hadith, my dear brothers and sisters has truly the meaning and the summary of Islam. Although the English translation use the word St. Farmer, for the for the meaning of this hadith, but actually, this hadith speaks about what we know it as the concept of salvation, the concept of salvation, then, in the people of other faiths, the cause of salvation is different in some concept of salvation, being born into the faith. So if you are part of that race, you are the chosen ones. And therefore no matter how much you try outside of that race, good luck, because they are chosen by

00:33:12--> 00:33:50

God. And the other faith, no, you are actually saved if you believe that, as I said, I'm Jesus died for you. So your sins on the cross. So eventually, he's just the Savior, by sacrificing himself on the cross. Now whether he is the Son of God, God Himself, that's a whole different story. But at least their concept of salvation, is that you believe that he is your Savior. And that's it. So what does that what does that mean? No matter what you do in your life, no matter how much you mess up in your life, if you still believe in your heart, that he's your savior, then all those sins are forgiven, and you should be good. Now what motivation for people to abstain from doing anything

00:33:50--> 00:34:21

wrong. So in Islam, the concept of salvation is in these two principles. Number one, to say I believe, which means you have the conviction in the heart that you believe in God and Allah subhanaw Only one Allah azza wa jal number two, you prove it. So the rough translation of the Hadith here, when he asked the Prophet sallallahu, semirara, Salah, summarize Islam for me, how can I be saved? Being a Muslim? The Prophet Salah Sam said, say, I believe, and then prove it.

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

How do you prove that with actions? Those actions are what we call them is the karma remaining steadfast. So that's the summary of the Hadith, as short as it sounds, but as the most profound principle of faith.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

Again, your concept of salvation as a Muslim is on these two things. Number one, that you say I believe, from the bottom of your heart, and then you prove that you believe through your actions and of course, your behavior. So let's read insha Allah Allah before we get to the reading, actually, from the from the book. Here I want to show you on the Hadith itself, there are a couple of narrations actually different in which the prophets of Allah

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

Alemany adds,

00:35:02--> 00:35:33

when he says thermostat them the most of them. He added something else he asked the Prophet salaallah Salam ya rasool Allah if this is the case then what is the most fearful thing you fear for me like okay I hear you but what could miss if it messes it up for me again also whoa could mess it up for me right now I know that having faith and actions are myself my savior right now but what could mess it up for me he says Karla Salah Salem in this case beware of this and he held his tongue he says called listen and your tongue

00:35:34--> 00:35:42

your tongue so you are to nourish inshallah we're gonna read them in the last version can you send them the ration? Yeah go ahead read those narration that generations

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

originally called the

00:35:51--> 00:35:59

Father the man said messenger Allah Oh, Can Can you read the top one first what it says mm amateurism

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

version of Adobe

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

has an integration of integrity and

00:36:12--> 00:36:42

acceptance of the role of Tony something to which I think goes fast. He said to say My Lord is not allowed and then go straight ahead. I said what's in there what a lot what is the most beautiful thing and so he told me he said so we can hold it as long time 10 minutes at Germany's at a good time. So that's the first donation like the explanation that he added what he said Look what is gonna mess it up for me he says this one like you're gonna always be safe. But beware of this this could be set up for you completely the second iteration

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

shall not ask anyone else after you

00:36:57--> 00:37:14

and then go straight ahead. I said what should I be wary? And he indicated once again my dear brothers serve in the hadith is very short. The Prophet Salah salami says the concept of salvation is you having faith and you provide your good deeds and he's give you right given you right now the one thing that could mess it up for you. And what is that?

00:37:15--> 00:37:36

Your tongue? So what do you need to do? Watch this thing lock her up. Lock her up as much as you can. Whether it's you're talking to your spouse, talking to your friend talking to anybody's Hello, just look it up and be careful what comes from this mouth from this site you understand? Now today most people don't necessarily use the tongue to talk to people what do they do?

00:37:37--> 00:38:13

Texting, right so there is a texting right now. Exactly. That said I have the same the same effect. You might not be speaking it, but you're typing it for them. So whether you're doing it of course by speaker or typing it up, you'll be careful that could mess up your entire salvation Subhanallah one single, any tool that's the tongue could mess it up for you malas habitats from the time you are Bellarmine let's move on to the next page of shallow to around the top. So this head is called an abyss Allah Selim cola meant to be like the master can say I believe and then prove it your actions. It came from the Quran as well. It came from the Quran. So the prophets Allah says in his words, he

00:38:13--> 00:38:28

was implementing the instruction of the Quran by translating the Quran to people. He is now translated interpreting the Quran to people Salawat Allah wa salam ala through actions Where are these coming from? So let's get into it shall have data or three ads modify go ahead

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

one of the things you will

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

want to do

00:38:44--> 00:38:54

is go straight here and you're not for you, Whoever joins majority products. So where's that? Where's that section of the aisle that coincides with the Hadith itself?

00:38:55--> 00:39:07

In Alladhina, Tara Boone, Allah so musta come those who say we believe in Allah or Allah is our Lord and then it's the karma which means they remain steadfast. So that's very obvious over here, the second iron

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

you been at

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

the same thing, transition.

00:39:22--> 00:39:29

Straight to go here, feel no fear at all, no, no sorrow. Such people are like companions in the garden.

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

So the first is sort of fostered and the second one sort of left off, I think it's mentioned maybe in the in the, the bottom, the footnote, but again, the same thing in the Latina card or a boon, Allah musta come they say Allah is our Lord, and then they remain steadfast and they go straight ahead with their action and with a good deeds. So the Prophet Salah Salem was actually interpreting the Quran, which is exactly the mission of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam as Allah described in the Quran that the Quran was revealed to the prophet for what needs to be hidden in Nassima Zilla Lee that you it was sent to us

00:40:00--> 00:40:34

You could explain to them what has been revealed to them. And that's part of the explanation the prophets, Allah Salam was given us. So this ayat also explained to us the concept of salvation. So if you ever had any discussion with people of other faiths, and they say, how do you guys know that you're going to be saved? So well, Islam, Islam being saved is based on having faith and proven what your good deeds, no one is going to die for your sins at all. So you're going to prove it to yourself, Michelle Aldana. Now, is it easy to maintain? It's the karma. Like remains, after saying I believe that Hamdulillah you know, guys, those who say We believe there are many.

00:40:36--> 00:41:05

Now those who prove it with good deeds, they filtered down. Just like if you remember, we talked about the second Hadith, high Gibreel. And the pyramid where you have a lot of the people are Muslims first. And then what happens is I get it narrower when you go to Eman, the numbers get less when you go to assign the number also get less similarly over here. Is it easy for people to remain steadfast? Holding on to a stick comma? Is it an easy task? Let's see now and the site

00:41:12--> 00:41:20

progress or warnings from cited those numbers a lot, and then go straight. And then and then set it some people say they're completely comfortable.

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

Also, believing in an activity can come from

00:41:27--> 00:41:31

whoever dies, I also live in an activity right is one of the one of the few.

00:41:34--> 00:42:09

So what does that what does that mean? Well, as you can see what the Prophet says MSN look, those who say I believe and remain steadfast, actually those who say I believe are many, but those who remain steadfast and not that many. That's what the prophets have said that some of them they say it but then what happens to them afterwards, they become kuffaar kuffaar in terms of what not necessary that they abandon Islam altogether? No, too far in terms of actually they abandon the actions itself. They're still Muslims. They're still Muslims. But unfortunately, they don't practice the practice of the people of us Tacoma. And those are the people who are not going to end up in Jana

00:42:09--> 00:42:37

directly. They're going to end up in Jana, eventually. But is there going to be directly? Not necessarily none. So what's the essence of estate karma right now, when we talk about a law professor St. Thomas Stockton, what is the essence of it? How do you interpret that a Sahaba and they give their interpretation of the meaning of being Muslim. Like when you have faith, we understand that okay, how do I prove it? So we have few meanings for you over here from other Sahaba and a set of Rahim Allah Tala number one.

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

Go straight

00:42:42--> 00:42:43

to associate anything else.

00:42:45--> 00:42:48

There is also that you said they do not turn they don't have turned to you.

00:42:50--> 00:42:50

There is also

00:42:54--> 00:42:57

what do we call this as Mr. Doe? Hey.

00:42:58--> 00:43:17

So just the farmer is they never ever associate partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. They will never associate part of the loss of hunt and worship. But do they commit sins? They will make mistakes? Yeah, obviously, but they never ever associate partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's the first meaning the second meaning was the farmer.

00:43:19--> 00:43:23

Week change, what do we change the narration that he said, This is the most tender

00:43:26--> 00:43:38

and it goes straight with witnessing that there is no God. So what does that mean? That means as long as you say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, you will find so how is that considered the most tender ayah in the Quran?

00:43:42--> 00:43:43

What do you guys understand from there?

00:43:46--> 00:43:52

It's basically as long as you say Allah, Allah, Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, you will find, doesn't matter what you do after that.

00:43:53--> 00:43:58

So what does that give people so much more than they deserve? Probably.

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

Which is why some people they think hamdulillah an imam for as long as I have faith in my heart, I'm good. But what about your good deeds? What about your Salah? You're fasting? Well, the Hadith says that I've learned so that Allah will good. So that's the misunderstanding of it. So that's why he says, a week chain of narration, but at this event, Ambassador Shelton, as long as you have the shahada 10 You'll find it's not necessarily the strongest meaning of it. Number three.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

cleanest way and

00:44:34--> 00:44:58

so what does that mean? You truthful? If you say it, what do you mean? You stick to it, you act upon it. You don't be deceitful. Try to cheat basically, like when someone is not on no one is looking, he's just gonna switch over to the right or the left. But when people are watching, you go straight in you're setting yourself up. So obviously that's what it means to be truthful to it. So you say I believe and they'd be truthful. Number four

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

All right,

00:45:01--> 00:45:04

concerning His words, exalted his ethos,

00:45:05--> 00:45:39

and then go straight. And he said, we're going to be continuing to discharge his obligations. So he says the meaning of it is actually doing the obligations. And he's talking about what the bare minimum, the bare minimum, as long as you do the bare minimum, you should be fine. Wherever we're getting that concept from, from the Hadith of the Bedouin. If you remember when there was a head who came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one time and the Prophet saw signs of acid and his question, so the man was asking, he said that we heard that a man came to us saying that You are the messenger of God, is that true? He said, Yes, that's true. Because this man saying that, that God is speaking

00:45:39--> 00:46:06

to you. And he is telling us that we need to, to pray five times a day. Is that true? He said, Yes, that's true. He goes, Do I need to do anything else? He goes, No, unless you want to do it on your own. Then he said, Okay, what about fasting? Do we need to fast anything more than a month of Ramadan? He goes, No, unless you want to add on your own. What about given the Zika anything else I need to give? No, unless you want to give on your own the proverb keep telling him these are the obligations unless you want to give on your own egos or Allah Allah as you do Allah uncle's, it goes, nope, not interested.

00:46:07--> 00:46:32

I will only do what obligation and that's it, I'm done. And then he left as he was leaving the proposers. I'm turning circle, Afla, Halabi and Sadhak. If he tells the truth, if he's being truthful about this, fulfilling his obligations, he's successful. So obviously, if this man sticks to what he promised to do properly, without any mistakes or any fallen short on his obligations, then he is he saved

00:46:33--> 00:46:39

and that's the way that he said that this is the meaning of this the meaning of is the karma that you do the obligation properly.

00:46:45--> 00:47:14

So that's basically it means the class he goes, Look what matters after you say I have faith is worth that you're sincere. Now, since it includes anyone in almost everything that you do, whether it's obligation, nephron, sunnah abstinence, from haram, kindness to people, whatever that you your lifestyle becomes all sensitive for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Like everything that you live, you live by the sincerity of Allah to Allah subhanho wa Taala dealing with people or dealing with allies. And the last one here, he said,

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

we continue in their obedience to Allah.

00:47:19--> 00:47:57

Now that's aware. So Katara said that is basically that means complete obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala which includes which includes velata total Muhammad, you do the obligations means what you've been commanded to do, and also avoiding the Muhammad God is prohibited. And those two categories also include the fourth and NFL, the fourth NFL, whatever Allah commanded to do binding on you such as for either like fasting Ramadan, or what he actually recommended for you, such as fasting Mondays and Thursdays if you practice this regularly. Then you are the one who saved because you have truly that you proven to be a steadfast someone who is going ahead after saying I believe

00:47:57--> 00:48:21

now as an as I would say, a tangent Imam with Raja Rahim Allah when adding to the meaning of to hate. He's like referring to the statement of across to the viewers remember, the first meaning of his the farmer by our Casa did was what towhead that you worship on only Allah azza wa jal, he wants to elaborate. What kind of to hate would probably maybe would fit in that definition. That's really what he said about it.

00:48:23--> 00:48:24

Perhaps those

00:48:26--> 00:48:32

years continuing, transforming the only means to complete and perfect building, which will prevent

00:48:33--> 00:48:48

the fire which is a detailed realization of there is no God but Allah because the guidance he was obey. And it was not until the fear exhaustion of him both reliance and supplication all acts of disobedience.

00:48:49--> 00:48:55

Since they're responding to the motivation of one's desire, which is shame on allies and within it says, at any time,

00:48:58--> 00:48:59


00:49:01--> 00:49:37

desires to be used. So if say the meaning of the railway what he says about it because look, though hate means the absolute purest of hate, the one that prompts you to practice everything Allah commands you off and and helps you stay away from Allah prohibits you, that is the one that is going to save you from Jahannam which means the one that is going to get you over the bridge. We know that some of them were heading some of them were hedge those who say Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah could end up in Jana Milan was that they couldn't agenda How is that? It had it? The professor said Mrs. Carter to do and I'm gonna move list. Do you know who's the mufflers the bankrupt? They

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

said, I'll move the Safina Mala Mala hula Dino is the one who has no Dirham, no dinar jasola. He goes, No, no, that's easy. The true bankrupt is the one who comes to the Day of Judgment. Yeah, man. These like the mountains of the hammer of Salatin OCM and masa Dakka. Dakka countered salah. He comes faster he can't also charity. However, those good deeds come with a huge liabilities he occurs

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

This person cuz this person hurt this person and they all take from their Hassan from theirs has an ad until they're gone. And then if it's not sufficient to reconcile with people they take from there say, throw on his account until this person is completely doomed. So he said the pewter editor hate here is the one that saves you and gets you straight to Jana is the one that is was good enough to make you always do the good deeds and prevent you from doing the bad deeds that will qualify you to go across Jana. So there is a bare minimum of the head. And there's a Tohei that takes you to the higher level like I believe in Allah. But my enough says always we can keep doing mistakes that

00:50:38--> 00:51:08

might cause me to go on to Johanna. But the truth of hate that gets me straight to Jana is someone that's strong enough to help me avoid all this and that's the meaning of SD karma to always stay on the straight path now. Now, good deeds, he says that when it comes to doing good deeds, are they already implied in a man when the brother says he says call call man to Billa say I believe but then we learn that part of the Eman is also practicing good deeds. So what does it mean here in this statement as for the version

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

because right, because right because, right.

00:51:18--> 00:51:34

Right, according to the right action, first generation, and those people ready. So what does that mean? He's He's saying over here is that look, after the Prophet says pull a man to Billa there is no need even to mention that you need to practice good deeds. So what does some Mustapa means?

00:51:36--> 00:52:13

It is now in addition to practicing good deeds means what to be truthful to these actions, to be truthful to be sincere, which includes all the different meanings that were mentioned earlier about is the karma. So doing good deeds or the implied with the statement say I believe, because I believe it right requires from you to practice that faith that belief right. But now, so what does the farmer mean then that practice of these actions should be sincere should be truthfulness should do with filter hate Allah subhanho wa Taala like all this implied and the word I believe so steadfastness compound compliance as you put everything together now. So as an example for having

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

the Eman actually implies good deeds

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

and also those

00:52:30--> 00:52:56

so what do we understand that the translation of this is over here, Allah subhanaw taala speak about them, he said to the Prophet, you go straight ahead, which means remain steadfast and those who have also repented with you, and they followed your way and Allah He praised them for practicing for doing the acts of Toba without excessive be been excessive in their practice. So that means their image and there is the karma required from them practice of good deeds the second minute Philadelphia federal

00:53:09--> 00:53:11

in order to do not follow them

00:53:12--> 00:53:50

so what does that mean here Allah some answer the professors and Philadelphia federal was stuck on camera Ahmed, what's the main goal was to come over here needs to abstain from their from their from wrongdoing. Abstain from following their their whims and their desires, which also requires what abstinence from haram The first category is about doing good deeds. And the second category was about absence from the Haram and that's exactly what we do. When we say amen. It's whether you have you practice the command or abstain from the from the prohibition. And here he is, give us two examples is the karma involves two things. It's the karma means you need to adhere to that what you

00:53:50--> 00:54:06

need to do, and to abstain from that which is supposed to avoid and that's the essence of our practice of our deen altogether. The next page insha Allah Allah, how serious is the karma in for us as Muslims I mean what come to us the karma, how seriously how serious is the karma? Yes

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

and he was dancing.

00:54:16--> 00:54:21

We had a very narrated approach at and others mentioned that his

00:54:23--> 00:54:31

dream meeting in a dream and said to him and said journal a lot he said to the ancestors Surah truth obviously solitude non

00:54:35--> 00:54:36

Free Will was

00:54:38--> 00:55:00

his words go straight as you know in order now so what does that mean? So I'll have some mo lottery says that the Prophet Salah Sam says that, when the when this ayah was revealed forgotten commandment, meaning remains steadfast. He says, since this was revealed to the Prophet Salah Salem. He was never seen laughing after that. Why was that? Why was that for? Because that command was

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

is very serious there is no room for wasting time recreation enjoying life no room for this you need to because the matter is very very serious obviously for him Salah Sam because the messenger of God for us human beings alarm Stan Elston our life is a bit different but it says basically what he what the message is mentioned. So we'll take that as the climber seriously, take it seriously that doesn't mean you don't have time for recreation and enjoying life and so like the Prophet even did, but you take a step less the amount of as the farmer really really seriously if the Professor Sam was always feeling scared every time you remember that can you imagine? What about you? You're the

00:55:39--> 00:56:02

one who's need to be worried about yourself every time you remember what's the meaning to have as the karma in your life? You realize that you're not actually being on that path you're missing out so much. So always remind yourself to be on that path inshallah. We mentioned that when it comes to the karma it came with of course with doing good deeds. It came with abstaining from from bad deeds. Also, the farmer comes with a step far number three was the Farkle enema Anna Bucha.

00:56:12--> 00:56:12


00:56:14--> 00:56:15

years old

00:56:19--> 00:56:27

so that means associating a farmer with a stepfather at all time. Why do you need to do so far while you're doing this to karma? What's the purpose of that edema?

00:56:31--> 00:57:02

You can't have a stiff arm all the time. You can't have 100% of the time at all times you're going to make mistakes there'll be gaps so therefore what do I need to cover that to patch those those gaps? So far, she can forgive me some ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So as much as I'm trying to be Mr. Clean, I'm going to make mistakes all of us going to make mistakes. So I wouldn't be surprised if I see you, for example in a compromised situation because you may be in after all, but Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who really considered our sins or mistakes. May Allah subhanaw taala was orderable element. Now let's move on to the next page of shallow Tana. I would like to the bottom of

00:57:02--> 00:57:21

the page. We're practicing this the karma as much as you can see, you might say okay, fine, but how much of that I mean, when you say it's the camera at all time, like the Prophet saw someone never smile. He would never laugh after this. How can I how am I going to live my life? It's gonna be tough and hard. How much of that is the farmer can I handle now

00:57:24--> 00:57:44

that people are unable to travel on swerving straight and that isn't enough, as he found a democratic buried in a heavy metal band in the profit zone while while he was upset, going storming straight ahead and you will not be able to fully accomplish it. You know that the rest of your activism is a prayer only a moment safeguards will do in the narration

00:57:45--> 00:57:47

in the marker close or close to it.

00:57:49--> 00:57:54

So this is now from the Prophet saw seven hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah gives us hope.

00:57:56--> 00:58:39

It gives us hope. Since it's the Karma is a very serious matter very dangerous matter. No skipping it and not fulfilling it is endangering our safety and being saved the day of judgment. But how much can we handle that? He says as much as you can that's what the Prophet says I've said the Hadith Khan is the team of volunteers so like Go Go Yan is remained steadfast, however he says you will not be able to accomplish to fully accomplish that. Like I know you're not gonna 100% accomplish that so it's okay he says it is okay. However, how can I compensate for that he says as long as you do good deeds, you will be fine. And one of your best good deeds to do he says as long as you maintain will

00:58:39--> 00:58:40

do at all times.

00:58:41--> 00:58:43

How many of us can maintain will do at all times it's

00:58:44--> 00:59:22

so hard especially in the winter along Stan right use the bathroom 10 times in five seconds. So this because it's so hard to do that but if you maintain will do regularly, this is one of the Ibadat Avista karma. So you're always ready for a vida you're always ready for daycare. You're always ready for Salah you're always ready for for the I always have in any act that requires Tahara you're always ready for it ready at all times. hamdulillah but that doesn't mean you have to maintain that forever. Like you said the province I said Cornwall and to sue you will never be able to accomplish 100% So do as much as you can. And one of those Khaled Khaled or the Allahu dunhua in which the

00:59:22--> 00:59:28

Prophet says and says God said they do according to read the Hadith and the two books

00:59:36--> 00:59:51

the Hadith and Arabic is actually the story said they do work or evil said they do a carnival. The word said that means to aim. The word said that means to Aim. Aim where at the target. What is your target?

00:59:53--> 00:59:59

Jana righteousness is the karma. The target is known to me. Now when you hit when you hit the arrow

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

Where are you going to hit?

01:00:02--> 01:00:15

As close as possible? Is there gonna always be a bullseye? No. Have you guys tried the archery before? Or Axe Throwing, I saw the brothers match and the camp mashallah the skills are amazing

01:00:16--> 01:00:51

how many people were able to hit it even to have the axe actually stick to the to the board, few of them somehow, let alone to hit the bullseye. So that's what it means the Hadith says the Prophet says had said to do a caribou, you need to as much as possible to keep aiming at the bull's eye. But when you hit as close as possible, as close as fast, which means that hamdulillah is the karma doesn't mean that you're going to have to be perfect, doesn't mean you're going to become an angel. But you are in the making. That's what it means you're going to keep trying your best. And if you fall short, you're close to the bullseye. That's what it means now.

01:00:55--> 01:01:04

Three events, and it is it is crucial to hit the mark in every word as needed all in all services and attention. Now, this is the one

01:01:05--> 01:01:24

that the target province a lot already, it's a little hard in the running to ask a lot for the quality of hitting the market guidance. And he said to him, remember, by hitting the mark, you're directing the target, you're there to is targeting the right audience, you're guiding someone on that. And the second minute, which is close, close enough,

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

coming close to it

01:01:28--> 01:01:39

instead of just close to the target and the target itself with the proviso that you shouldn't be determined to the environment strengthened sorry. So that is coming close to the target. And

01:01:41--> 01:02:17

so from that goal, I mean two things. So the origin basically, here's and that at the bottom, which are the last two statement we have over here is that knowing that coming close to it is by one of two things. Number one, first, the first set do you do with your heart, which means you aim with your heart with your intentions. I'm aiming to wake up for tahajjud tonight, with my heart that's now tested. I'm aiming right now to recover that I'm aiming to fast Mondays, I'm aiming to do this, but I'm aiming to stay away from this, that's my heart right now aiming to the target. But then when it comes to practice what's going to happen? I might fall short on fulfilling that fast and

01:02:17--> 01:02:53

properly. Maybe in my fasting. I slept half of that day, for example. So in terms of you know how much I first read it, but not much but it's still fasting. Or maybe I said things are the things that should not I'm not supposed to do. But still Hamdulillah I came 80% To get the full reward for fasting for example, that day, that's better than nothing. So your job is by your heart, your target you to aim the target. And when you're good deeds, you'd come as close as possible to that target. So read a little bit from so the origin so the origin going and storing history data is the hardest continuing. unswervingly Toby

01:02:55--> 01:02:56

explains words

01:02:58--> 01:03:04

and they go straight, they do not criticize other than whatever the market views were released during

01:03:06--> 01:03:24

Nasus Nazism alive the arguments of exaltation and all that work and watching him hoping for himself when he supplicating him relying on them and turning away from them then all the winds will continue on as we're reading obedience to Him because the heart is the king of the letters

01:03:25--> 01:03:35

when the king goes straight ahead, so distributed subjects. So this is basically what we said about the aim of the target with the heart with your intentions and the next part is in

01:03:37--> 01:03:38

his words as often as he

01:03:41--> 01:03:47

pays for me towards a natural believer or explained to me earlier

01:03:48--> 01:03:57

so that said they do again you take your aim by intending Allah subhanaw taala filled in every action that you do the second part which is portable means that come close to it

01:04:01--> 01:04:03

so as to be sure that it goes alright.

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

Since it is a translator

01:04:06--> 01:04:18

expresses what is it so basically all your good deeds, but one thing you'll be aware of which one is that the tongue why is that it is the province with

01:04:21--> 01:04:23

the advice and the advice and after that

01:04:24--> 01:04:59

so what do we need to do in order for you to safeguard your tongue and Gemma lock her up or if you're gonna say something What do you say something good that's what the professor some gave us advice on that men can and will be left alone with after falafel fair and if you truly believe in Allah and the final day, then you speak good otherwise remain silent. If you can lock up your tongue like that, you should be okay shallow water codedom Allah subhana wa Taala give us a true Eman your Ebola enemy and through is the farmers bath wala Huhtala Shala. Next time inshallah will come we will study with Hadith number 23 in shallow Tana

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

alternatively I just want to say by the way just to let you know, Hadith number 22 In the Arabic texts that I have in my hand over here is actually the end of volume one.

01:05:10--> 01:05:25

So once we finished Hadith next week and shallow out of order Kota Allah that means we are done with actually volume one and we're gonna start with Volume Two inshallah next Monday during the month of Ramadan inshallah Alright, let's go to the question Sharla

01:05:38--> 01:05:57

Smilla what is the pain of people have a book invite you to dinner? Should we go have an invitation from people other than people have the book? People have the book if they invite you to food for example, the prophets have never accepted an invitation from the people of the book. Yes, he did. He did sort of what the law said I'm not a member when he was invited to go to banana

01:05:59--> 01:06:12

for food a lady she served them. Lamb and forte was poisonous though. But the Prophet SAW Selim he actually he accepted the invitation. So it's okay to go there. As long as you know that the food is halal.

01:06:13--> 01:06:16

And the ambience and the environment is going to be halal for you. It should be okay.

01:06:18--> 01:06:47

And sometimes it's good to let them know that look, I mean, we have a special diet and part of the courtesy they will serve you that shallow tobacco that I remember actually we've added some people actually from the tour of the book and they went out of their way they went out of their way and they went they bought halal meat they say we went to this store and that store and we bought this from that place. So they say basically don't worry about it. Everything is halal hamdulillah just make sure that they don't they don't cook it with lard or with the with wine Okay, and just because they made this hella doesn't mean they're going to cook it the right way. Just be careful with that.

01:06:48--> 01:06:49


01:06:51--> 01:07:01

what are the meat is not holla if they're gonna feed you something that's how you don't eat it. If you know that the meat is not halal that is serving you. When we say I have not heard that means what maybe the

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

animal was was not slaughtered properly or the chicken was was gassed, not cut. Eventually some culture they do that unfortunately, they actually they break the neck without even slaughtering the animal. So in this case, you don't need that meat. Nicholas Evans was served by a Muslim you know either.

01:07:22--> 01:07:26

Does the shisha or hookah count as unlawful furniture?

01:07:27--> 01:08:05

Like we see restaurants selling hookah offering stop buffet and coming to Ramadan's festivals. Is that okay to boycott these type of restaurants? Or it's up to you to be honest with you? It's up to you. I mean, for me Islamically speaking smoke is haram whether it's shisha or cigarettes or cigar or whatever, it's completely haram because these are the harmful matters and ALLAH SubhanA says in the Quran, yeah. Hello, la Mata Eva, we have Mr. merkaba, that he makes good things lawful for them and how harmful things harmful things unlawful to them. So based on of course, the scientific evidence of the effect of tobacco and smoking and so on, it's harmful, so therefore, it's haram. Now

01:08:05--> 01:08:36

whether it's us or otherwise, that doesn't matter now, just the fact that the restaurant has shisha as a decoration. Should I balk at that place? It's up to you. I don't say actually you have to balk at that. But if you if they have I hope if they have a section that is completely free from that kind of stuff, you have the insight for example as no shisha knows nothing and then Bismillah and but if it's all mixed up together, it's better to stay away from it even even if it's not the amount of Halal haram the second the second smoker is also dangerous so be careful with that

01:08:41--> 01:08:51

what is the difference between doing Tober and is still far October involve is still far and more so still far is by saying a stop for Allah that's now

01:08:52--> 01:09:11

by saying it I stopped for Allah I seek forgiveness from Allah Subhan Allah Allah forgive me, Toba is saying it and doing it which means you're gonna have to first of all abstain from the Haram you need to regret it you need to try to amend your marriage with the people and also of course never make commitment never going back again to it so that's involved is too far. Plus

01:09:15--> 01:09:17

what if because of medical reasons you've you

01:09:19--> 01:09:54

you can't do it we'll do for every prayer. Can we pray Fudger with the widow of the 100 Yes you can. As long as you keep your elbow and shoulder should be fine. That should be okay inshallah then and even active you cannot keep your although if someone has a condition where they they cannot keep although for for a very long time. Like the moment you make your will do by the time you go prepare for Salah you lose it forever medical condition they go through in this case there is nothing wrong with that they make will do for every fourth time so at Fajr time they make will do and they pray Fudger even if they realize that they lost their will do and their Salah should be okay if they lost

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

their will do when they were praying the Sunnah of Fajr find continue and pray your treasure in the same condition should be

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


01:10:01--> 01:10:08

until the overtime door time you make another role. Same thing you pray your son and follow that model, even if you lose it in the middle. So it should be fine Inshallah, that

01:10:12--> 01:10:16

is steadfastness and faith and accurate translation of his diploma.

01:10:18--> 01:10:40

I mean, you know, the English language is way, much smaller in terms of its wealth than the Arabic language, the Arabic language is rich language. So therefore, if you're going to be translated word for word, it's not going to happen. But it's the karma. Just to be specific about the meaning of it's the karma. It's the karma has Alif cinta in it right. So what do you understand from the LFC into

01:10:41--> 01:10:58

soliciting something? That is the essence of LFC into in any verb in the Arabic language is stuck them is stuck in which means what? Solicit that so it's the Comboni says steadfastness and faith, it doesn't even give them meaning. Because when I say stop them, what do you understand from this?

01:10:59--> 01:11:12

Like, pursue it, that's what it means pursue what they wanna, what is glue, I'm over here to be upright, because I'll call him that what your upright, anything else beside that is crooked or bent.

01:11:13--> 01:11:24

So the opposite is the comma is being crooked or bent. So if it's bent, that means it's not straight. And if it's crooked, I was not straight either. So therefore,

01:11:25--> 01:12:02

when we say stop them, it has the meaning of the purity of path. The absolute absolute straight path there is no crookedness. There is no bending here and there in that path. So when it says steadfastness and faith, I don't know how close that is to the word is the karma in earth. You now do your own translation by understanding the Arabic text and the meaning of Islam. How would you translate in English the solicitation of I don't know you guys help me out with that on your own inshallah but that's the meaning of the word is determined Arabic soliciting the straight path the least of it there is meaning of it now.

01:12:04--> 01:12:05

The hadith

01:12:06--> 01:12:10

has an an an abuse or some an abuse SLM can't share with you the work.

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

And well this story is not from the prophet from Al Hasan it's actually the Imam Ashoka Rahim Allah Tala one of the side of when he said that he saw the Prophet saw them in the in the in his dream and he said he Satalia Rasul Allah, how come sherbert Yahuwah the story of Hood and the similar stories of food because of the intensity of the of the events that happened to the people of food and Islam and other MBR the Prophet saw some he grew gray hair as a result of that. He says it's similar to that is the I

01:12:44--> 01:12:49

was stuck on camera Omert remain steadfast. So that's for the professor was very intense now.

01:12:50--> 01:13:01

Hal had the highest say, it's not a hadith it's actually it's a dream that was seen by one of the dilemma is it is it authentic? Now it was mentioned some of the books of the dilemma. So Allahu Allah, but we have to be that to be okay.

01:13:02--> 01:13:34

What's rolling on these these visions and your dreams? We do not take rules from the visions meaning if the prophets doesn't come to you and dream and he tells you tell the people that five daily prayers are too much right now. So four are enough inshallah. Dan, would you go on until the people that Gemma I am the representative Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam you should pray on the floor? Of course not. If you come and the prophet tells you in your dream, I want you to repeat this dua 10 times after every salah. Would you do that?

01:13:35--> 01:14:16

Of course not. Because the professor is not going to come and give us any fake ruling or any a bad a new Eva in dreams. Rather, it might become just a reminder like this one for example, which was also mentioned a hadith before. So the Imam didn't bring us anything new. Like I remember one time in the emirate. I prayed Maghreb in the masjid and then after that the Imam he he starts calling this look as a man my father who used to be the Imam before him in the masjid. He says my father, he when he passed, I saw him I saw him in my dream he was in Jannah and he told me that he saw the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Prophet saw some give him this word, which is basically like a line of

01:14:16--> 01:14:29

art and Dhikr to mention a he asked me to give it to my congregation and they should repeat that after every Maghreb Salah and he started handing these handouts to the people after certain method and the people mashallah run into Jacob

01:14:30--> 01:14:38

and America just like that quarter level how gullible the OMA is alarm Stan anyone who says a dream doesn't Rasulullah told me to do so they got going to follow it.

01:14:39--> 01:14:52

So how do we know this is true or not anyway? So therefore, we say we don't take rules from these from these visions. But if it's a reminder something to reinstate some that that we already practice in our day, it should be okay, inshallah.

01:14:55--> 01:14:59

Is there any tips or dua we can do to do suddenly do a caribou like

01:15:00--> 01:15:12

To hit the mark, and come as close as possible, is there any specific dua the Prophet SAW said I'm used to say in some of the DA Allahumma, Inez Lucas said Allahumma inni as a Luca sedan,

01:15:14--> 01:15:29

which means your Allah, I asked you to help me hit the mark. Now on mokaba There is no specific word for it. But as Luca said other filicudi Will, Amman, your ally, asked you to help me to hit my mark, whether in my statements or my actions now.

01:15:32--> 01:15:37

So the fact that all the time, Allah guide us a straight path all the time I did a serata muster now.

01:15:41--> 01:16:20

Someone says, can toggle occur regarding God in the tongue, I work in a field where it involves me talking a lot with other staff, almost all the employees are non Muslims. So conversations are not really beneficial. Primary work related or small talk, I try to watch to watch what and how I say, but many times I feel drained and authentic after talking so much with them, and scared, my heart will, will hard and I will lose my shyness due to this. Because I barely talk as much outside of work. What is the best way to go about this as this is my job? May Allah make it easy for you? I mean, you said it yourself.

01:16:21--> 01:16:54

If you can maintain your relationship with the with your staff, to eventually the to the to the formal conversation. Don't go beyond that. Hey, how's your dog? How's it doing? Oh, what the vet tells you about this. You don't have to make that conversation with them. You ask them generally, and maybe in some other occasions as you walk in out, Hey, how's your cat doing for example, something like this and just keep moving. You don't have to make a very formal conversation with them just for the sake of earning the points for them when you talk to them. Also, we mentioned that if you remember he has one of the advocate of speaking or remaining silent. When do you need to talk

01:16:54--> 01:16:56

when you start feeling good about being silent.

01:16:58--> 01:17:21

And when you need to go silent. We started feeling good about talking too much. That's your measurement. If you start feeling great about your speaking that's better for you to start going quiet now because now you're going too much but if you're starting out feeling so great about being quiet mashallah You look so so majestic in that position and now you need to break that silence so don't show arrogance is talk to the people.

01:17:24--> 01:17:25

When it comes to

01:17:26--> 01:17:30

having silk furnishing, it's not allowed. It's not allowed to sleep on

01:17:33--> 01:17:56

what are called on bedding for example, if you have your bedding or your your, your pillowcases and so forth, they're made of silk. For men, they're not supposed to use them. What does that mean? Your husband for ladies your husband is not allowed to buy these things for you. But if you bought them yourself because you like them and use them on your bed, he's allowed to sleep on Amazon

01:17:58--> 01:18:09

and that's what they say about this man, but he's not allowed to buy it for himself. Also you shouldn't be using furnishings such as cushions and maybe if you have let's say the room

01:18:10--> 01:18:30

would you call mattresses or even the carpets if it's if it's you're buying them for yourself that is okay in your own quarter your own house in your part of the house but other than that becomes extravagant if you're going to use carpets actually made of silk is considered X seven as well Ahana

01:18:33--> 01:18:35

What about some fair rugs for you for the lettuces okay

01:18:43--> 01:19:04

so when you eat the restaurants there are some images sometimes on the wall backgrounds Music What do we do so did the workout him do as much as you can you don't have to go to this restaurant if it's actually considered very loud and very Annie awful than nature but if you have some other restaurants where you can control the music by asking the person could you please you know turn this off but you can't control the image on the wall should it's up to you as you wish

01:19:10--> 01:19:28

so what about invitations from family who are not practicing like close family wedding and so on. Like we said you go you do your duty by saying congratulations send your gifts and so on. And you wait in the hallways outside and do your best shot to be part of the event without having to participate in what is considered prohibited there.

01:19:30--> 01:19:41

The class and Schelotto on Ramadan and Ramadan are gonna move to Sunday after the her so there is going to be at 145 in Ramadan and shallow Tara is going to be Sunday after the Orisha Allah azza wa jal

01:19:48--> 01:19:52

we talked about sincerity and and whole class actually before you can go back to the shallow Tana

01:19:59--> 01:20:00

the few who said that we should

01:20:00--> 01:20:20

inviting people are considered for staff but what if that person is considered relative?
