Shala today we're going to do a short explanation of a beautiful hadith is a dua so long dua lengthy DUA and it's a very comprehensive you will not be able to memorize it in this explanation because it's very long but you can I'll tell you how to find it. And also the point is to understand the phrases of this dua so that I shall have two other we can memorize them and use them. The hadith is reported in the Sunnah of an SRT and the Mustafa Muhammad and others and it's a beautiful story as well. And it goes that amount of vinyasa you know, the famous companion his father, he acid and mother's familia were Shaheed and Amal was the one that the parish tried to torture him. And he
acquiesced. And he said things you shouldn't have said, he comes running to the Prophet so they sell them he says Yarrow sort of life committed Cofer, the processes what happened he explains the story that the orange killed my mother, my father, they're about to kill me. And I said something, you know, just to get the torture off. So the Prophet says, How's your iman said, the man is strong in the heart. He said, don't worry if they repeat the torture, you repeat what you have to say. And then Allah revealed in the Quran that 11 ocarina whoever is forced is forgiven. If you're forced, you're going to be killed and whatnot, you're forgiven to say whatever. This is a mod of vinyasa.
And I might have been yesterday as well. He's the most famous Sahabi in regards to the fitna, between the Sahaba our prophecies and and predicted that the Bahia are the group that is rebelling, is going to kill a mob, and so he died in the battle of Safin. A Shaheed he was fighting on the side of it though the Allah one against the other side of why we are the Allahu Allah forgives although the Masha Allah, but he was on the side of it. And his death was a marker for many of the Sahaba that the one that was closer to the truth was added to the Allah one because he was fighting in the camp of it. And our Prophet system said that the Bosnia group the rebelling group is going to kill
Ahmad vinyasa and he died in that battle. So she has a few Hadith not that many Hadith. This was one of the Hadith. So this hadith goes as follows that one day he led them in Sudan. One day he was leading them in Salah he was the Imam of the Salah, and for ojos he prayed a short Salah and then he left the gathering. Some people complained that you left a very short Salah you let a very short sunnah we wanted a longer Salah behind you. And he said, even if I have led a short salah, I made a dua in it that the prophets have some taught to me this why are we doing this hadith, I made a dua in it that the prophets Allah Allah said, I've taught me that made up for the length I didn't need
to make it long. As long as I have this dua then even if it's short, it's good. Now this shows us that Subhan Allah and the time of the Sahaba they wanted longer sought us right and our times we have to make shorter Salah no problem times change, but at the time of the Sahaba they wanted Ahmad to give a longer Salah Why did you make it you know so short right? And he responded back that within the Salah there was a quality so what is important is not how long how short it is the quality and Ammar or the Allahu and said within the Salah, I made a DUA, that dua made up for the length. As long as I made this up, don't worry about it. This also shows us by the way, an important
sunnah that we neglect, and that is the Sunnah of making dua in such that this is a form of Salah he's leading them in Salah it's a form of Salah, and when he's in such the he makes this dua which we're going to say right now. And he is saying because I made this dua then doesn't matter if my salah is short, and this shows us an important neglected sunnah, that when we are in such the, we should prolong the search that we do up after we say subhanallah belie Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala after we make any of the other regular of God subordinate producer upon our marketing ROI, we should then make dua from the heart dua about the deen and duniya dua about this world and the next
world and any do us are permitted at this time, any do us and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that increase your do as in your such that because you will be the closest to your Lord and such. And because your chances of ISTE Java or higher for coming in on a new stage Java comm your chances of drop or higher. So this is assuming that we should come back to now when he said this. He was in the end of the month he left one person ran behind him. He says oh I'm out of vinyasa. Teach me this dua and because of this one person we have this memorized Subhanallah the the blessings of being eager for knowledge, right? The blessings that you want to learn something you
know when he's leaving, he says look, I made it to adore it's a good Salah Yes, I did it. He left one person run he says yeah, Amara eliminate teach me what was this dua that you said. And so this is the longer that he said I'm gonna go over it phrase by phrase. So he said what I said was that Allahumma in Allahumma Barrington Michelob Oh,
Well Allah I asked you by the fact that you know ilmenite work quadratic, I'll hug and I asked you by the fact that you have power over your creation. Now, the DA is beginning by asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada via his attributes via his power. Oh Allah be inimical him. Because you know in Mannheim, where we put the latika al Hulk, and because you have power over the creation, before we begin what we want, we begin by praising Allah. Before we say give me we say, Yeah, Kareem, before we say Forgive me, we say algo far. So we open our doors with what is called TELUS Su and tawassul is of many types and of the types of there was soon to was soon by Allah's names and attributes that was
sold by invoking Allah with what He is befitting to be invoked with, this is the opening of dua. So I might have been the answer says that, oh, Allah, I asked you because you have elemental and because you have ultimate control over the creation. What do I ask you? A Heaney? Madam, tell Hayato, Hydra leaf whatever funny either Adam to refer to Hydra Li, this is the beginning. First First thing that you ask, Oh Allah, grant me life. As long as you know life is in my best interest and cause me to die. When you know that death is better for me. What a beautiful dua, the default of most of us, Europe give me a long life. No, that's not what we ask. Because no matter how long we
live, eventually, and it's not the quantity of years. It's the quality of life. We want quality of life. And sometimes some people live a life where the quality is so bad, so poor, that really it's not worth it. And that's why our profit system would seek refuge and Allah from living a life until he becomes senile, or will become rodella Another rumor. I don't want to live that long that I lose my senses we don't want to live to that life that will become more tired will become you know, somebody else has to take care. We don't want that. Right. And so our motto vinyasa begins this guy he's learning from the prophets I send them and this to Isaiah, Allah. Take me Yeah, Allah gives me
life. As long as you know life is better for me and cause me to die when you know that death is better for me. The next phrase was a Dukkha sciatica. Filet B when I dhania, I asked you, Oh Allah, that you grant me, a fear of you, when people are looking at me. And when I'm all alone. In other words, my heart has to be the same regardless of whether I'm in public or private, right? And in the Quran, so many times Allah DNF sharara, humble hype, right? Those who fear their Lord in the unseen, the real test of piety is not when people are looking at you. The real test of piety is when you're all alone. Is your Hashem the same? Is your fear of Allah and worship the same. Let my actions be
consistent. Phil I will Allah Ania when people are watching when I'm all alone, it should be exactly the same. Again, what a profound dua, right? You want your class to be so high, that is irrelevant. Whether you're in public or private secret or in front of the whole world, you will do the exact same thing. So I asked you Allah has sciatica for the baby. Well, Allah Ania were Kadima tell HealthDay robot well Hado and I asked you that are always speak the truth, whether I'm happy or whether I'm angry. My tongue has to be Mr. theme. Now some have pointed out the first part of this dua Hershey attack is about your taqwa and the second part, the collimator and help it's about your
laugh. And, and the summary of all of Islam is taqwa and Adam, right taqwa and how you treat other people. And these two phrases combined that oh Allah grant me, Hashem of the heart, and I will Allah make my tongue straight, in all circumstances. And the tongue, it is the key to unlock the tongue is how you interact with other people. And our profit system is saying Yara, whatever my state, whatever my internal, my tongue has to always be saying that which is appropriate that which is correct. And this is basically the miftah are the key of o'clock. So Allah so the prophets are making dua to Allah that grant me the o'clock and gradually the reality that no matter what happens,
I'm always saying the best words, and even when I get angry, and I lose control of internally, externally, I can control externally and that's the real subject, right? No matter how angry you are, you're not gonna get into trouble. But when the anger affects your tongue, when the anger affects your limbs, that's when you might cross the line. And so even if I'm angry, Oh Allah, let my tongue always speak that which is best was a local Costa fille. *ery well Alina, and I asked you, Oh Allah, I'll toss moderation.
Whether I'm rich or whether I'm poor, this is a interesting phrase as a local caster fee. Phil *ery. Well, Hina I asked you moderation, in poverty and in richness. What does this mean? By the way, the profit system would never ask to be wealthy.
He would never say, Oh Allah make even though it is not wrong, per se. It is not haram. We may ask to be of the wealthy. But we should always add a caveat and make me have the generous, right. Never say oh Allah give me money just like that. That's a fitna. And that's why I process them never just said give me money. No, that's not really even if you want money, oh Allah grant me wealth and make me have the salah Hey, no problem. You add that at the end as well. But our profit system is MACOM is higher than mine in yours. It is not befitting that he asks Allah for lots of golden silver. What did he ask Allah as a local cost? I want moderation in poverty and in richness. Now scholars have
different what does this mean? The majority interpretation which Allah and there's nothing wrong with having multiple interpretation is that Oh Allah, regardless of how much wealth or poverty I have, I'm always being generous and taking care of my family moderation here. I don't want to be extreme in either giving everything or withholding everything. So regardless of my own financial circumstances, regardless of my own state, I should always be consistently generous and consistently prioritizing family because that's what Islam teaches us, right? Islam does not teach us that we become impoverished and leave your wife and children poor, we give everything to other people. No.
So this is the the majority interpretation of cost. There is another interpretation, nothing wrong with this, and that is that if I am blessed with wealth, or tested with poverty, don't make it extreme either way, give me moderation. So, there are a hadith that I seek refuge in You from the fitna of Lena and the fitna of *er. And this could be interpreted this way that Oh Allah, if you give me wealth, don't make it a fitna. For me, don't make it so much. And if you're testing me with poverty, don't make it a fitna for me that there's no food to eat, right? So you go through a little bit of cycles, if the cycle is within a reasonable spectrum hamdulillah Don't test me with
unreasonable spectrums, right. And we all know that extreme wealth is one of the biggest tests of mankind, look around, you will look around you how few people of that category are righteous. Similarly, extreme poverty is a major fitna, because you cannot concentrate you cannot pray, you cannot take care of your children. You cannot live a normal life. That too is a problem. We don't want to go there. So another interpretation which is valid, that Oh Allah, if you test me with wealth, Don't test me with that, which is going to be too much. And if you test me with poverty, Don't test me with that there's going to be too much poverty. So I want moderation, even in wealth,
make me moderate. And even if I have to be tested with poverty, not too much of a fitna, and both of these interpretations aren't valid. So I asked you all cost fee. Phil *ery will clean up was a Luca Iman inferred was a Luca Kurata in the Latin Quarter, oh Allah I asked you blessings that never stop, and the coolness of the eye that will never cease. So continue to bless me, bless me, bless me continue to give me comfort that will never stop once again. We have multiple interpretations, the primary interpretation, what is it that will give you continuous blessings forever and ever.
Jana, what it is that will give you continuous coolness of the eye without stopping Jana. So one interpretation, which is again, there's nothing wrong, although these are valid, right? The first interpretation these two phrases, I'm asking you for Jana, and he's describing Jana, Oh Allah, grant me that place in which the blessings never cease. And that place in which the comfort of my eyes will never stop that is Janna. But you can also interpret it completely valid, that Oh Allah, continue to bless me forever and ever and ever in every type of blessing in this dunya and the next, and it continued to give me comfort forever and ever and ever in this dunya and the next and that is
also a valid interpretation. Don't we want blessings in this dunya? Don't we want comfort in this dunya and this is also a valid interpretation. Once again, notice the comprehensiveness of the DUA our Prophet system is not saying bless me with wealth, bless me with the house bless me with children, he keeps it open leaves it to Allah continue to bless me how you know best how to bless me, Oh Allah, and of the etiquettes of the DUA is to be Jahmir compre
hence you don't specify when you can leave Allah to specify. Why would you want to restrict the blessings of Allah? Oh Allah continue to bless me and the story. Oh Allah continue to make me happy. What more do you want right? Allah knows best when we add an adjective for no reason we add a noun for no reason. We are restricting for no reason. Oh Allah continue to bless me with with wealth. Okay, how about your health? How about your family? How about the problems of this dunya why restrict the unrestricted? Oh Allah, I asked you blessings that never stopped. What a beautiful dua to Allah, I asked you for a comfort of the eye that never ceases always make my soul at peace
Subhanallah This is the etiquette of the Prophet of the prophetic dua. And the Hadith goes on. That was a Luca Rebo Vidal Cadore beautiful phrase here was Sir Luca Reba badolato. I asked you Oh Allah, that after your decree comes, you grant me contentment of that decree. We can change Allah's brother, we cannot change other. But we have to accept that other and be content. We don't have to be happy. We have to be content, there's a difference between the two. Nobody is happy at a calamity. But once a calamity happens, we have to have a resolution in our hearts resolve it. In the law when they erode your own. Allah is the one who says confer your con we must accept Allah SCADA,
even if we don't be happy at it. So he's asking for real law by the ABA. Because to reject Kava is the essence of Khufu or with a biller to reject it why did this happen to me? This should not have happened to me you are rejecting the power of Allah subhanaw taala so the Profit System is asking Oh ALLAH one your papa comes grant me contentment at that Kaaba. So this is the next phrase few phrases left here was a Luca let's that another sorry was barra de la Shiva added mode? And oh Allah I asked you for the coolness of living after death. What again, interesting too, ah, after I die, I want to live a good life. Subhan Allah when you make this dua, your mentality changes. death does not become
the end it becomes the beginning. Oh Allah I asked you for the coolness of life after death. Imagine you're asking Allah, you're looking forward to the real life. You want the life that is sweet, the life that is good, beginning with the Barossa and continuing all the way to Jana. Oh Allah I ask you for the coldness of life after death Subhanallah the whole again for the Muslim for the Mothman death is not the end rather it is a milestone that all of us have to pass and after that milestone we want to have the real life so oh Allah I ask you for the best life the beautiful life the life that is cool and sweet that will come to me when after death Subhanallah again, the mentality
changes and the phrase then the Hadith goes on was Oh Luca let that another ILA will check. This is one of the phrases that is why the hadith of Amara is so is so important in my Masha for others, they use this hadith to prove the doctrine which is mainstream Sunni doctrine, non Sunni is denied the Morteza denied the others denied it and that is to look at the face of Allah subhanaw taala right, it's in the Quran. Would you whom and another little bit and now they're up to looking at Allah azza wa jal is one of the key doctrines of the Quran and Sunnah. And we understand that we affirm this in earlier times there were other groups and this and that they denied it. They said how
can we see Allah this means he's this and that they went down their philosophical way. The hadith is what was a Luca let that another body in our trick, and Oh Allah, I ask you, the sweetness of looking at your face, the sweetness of looking at your face. Now the looking at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the highest blessing of Jana. Nobody will get it unless they are of Jana automatically. Only the people of gender will get it and it is the best blessing of Jana.
Even Jana itself becomes negligible when you see the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala Lilla Dina Arsinoe those who do good and husana will get the perfection of Jana was Jada and more than Jana. This is in the Quran. Those who do good will get Jana and more than Jana. The prophets have said a zyada another row into which he called Kareem the extra zyada it is to look at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala and if Nakayama has a beautiful passage in his description of gender
Were salata Juma in Jannah. will not be a hottie been hotbeds. No. So that'll Joomla or there is no Serrato Joomla Joomla will be one couches will be spread and people will sit down and gaze at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is Joomla the Joomla of Jana is not like us, no, there is no Salah there is no but July time, what will happen? July time is the weekly the weekly time where the people of Ghana will gaze upon the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala and everyone will be in accordance with his MACOM with his family with his good deeds, the more was the common good deeds, the more the longer that gays will be. But everybody in Jannah will get that case. And our Prophet
system described it as left that another the sweetness of looking there is nothing sweeter than that gaze of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada when were able to see Allah and that does not happen in this dunya as we know, Musa us he didn't get it in this dunya you cannot get it. It is only in the era that Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, Canada in the home Arab Bamyan within the module Boone on that day, the people who rejected Allah shall have a barrier between them and Allah Imam Shafi commented on this he said, when Allah shall punish the kafir with the barrier, this indicates he shall reward the believer by lifting the barrier. You get the point here right? When Allah says gala in the home Arab
DeMeo Mithila Matthew Boone, the kuffaar shall be blocked from Allah azza wa jal from seeing Allah in mama Shaeffer he said, When the kuffaar will be blocked, and that is a punishment. This means the believers will not be blocked and it will be a reward and the whole Quran and Sunnah mentions this and the editor Ahmad is explicit. Oh Allah, I asked you for the length of looking at your beautiful face was Shoka Isla de quoi, Oh Allah, I asked you for the desire to meet you to be excited to meet you choke, even in order to choke right? You want to have the show? The desire, the eagerness to meet Allah. Again, this is a beautiful Hadith and phrase here, not the desire of death because
nobody desires death. But what will happen after death to meet Allah I should be excited to meet Allah. And the Prophet system is saying, Oh Allah make me excited to meet you. Give me that trepidation gives me that desire, that yearning that Oh ALLAH eventually I want to meet you. And when we have that desire, will it not be manifested on our actions and good deeds want to our entire life change when we're thinking about the aka looking at Allah, the desire to meet Allah, so this this hadith, by the way, it's so beautiful, because it combines this dunya and the next give me the best of this dunya make my life good over here. Allow me to live as long as I live and then die when
death is better for me. And I want you to meet you, Oh Allah, I want the desire to meet you. I want to see your face, when you keep on saying this dua. Right? What will the problems of this dunya be to you? Nothing, you don't care. There's the eternal life afterwards, when you're eager to meet Allah, then you're not troubled by what is happening in this dunya. So we'll show you that fear Lady Laura mudra Wella fitness a mandala and Oh Allah, allow me to meet you. But I don't want the death to happen in a calamity that is harmful or in a fitna. That is misguiding. In other words, all of these phrases, they they imply death. I'm going to die. I'm going to meet you, I'm gonna see you. Oh
Allah, I don't want my death to be bought raw Madeira. The raw is like a general calamity that is harming lots of people. I don't want to die in that type of calamity. Well, I fit that in mandala and neither in a misguiding time that might misguide me a fitna happens and I turn left to right and my death comes to me No, I don't want that allow the death come to me when in a state where my Eman is strong, and the calamity is not affecting me and my family. So we ask Allah for a dignified death. And this is what this phrase implies. And then the final phrase of this hadith, Allahu Mirza Yin busyness and Eman were Jana who that and motored in the final phrase Allahumma Zina busyness in
Eman, O Allah beautify us with the beauty of Eman close me with the close of iman. Oh Allah allow a man to make me beautiful. I don't want to be beautiful because of my wealth.
