Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim
hamdulillah he was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he was early he was happy woman wala Ummah bad Sharla will this session we will discuss
the recommended timings for
the recommended situations that a person when he is in the drought is more probably more likely to be accepted. And also the factors that help a person's dying being answered and also help them and not being asked. In other words, they're an impediment to the response of his job. These four topics inshallah, we will summarize, and then after motive, we'll talk about the wisdom behind the delayed response. Why is it that sometimes our dogs are late and being responded to, and perhaps a little bit about the relationship of others and to us, and then we're going to open the floor for an extended q&a after motive inshallah. So, this is the overall plan for the next few lectures. So for
the first topic, is there a recommended timings for drop, and this is of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that Allah has allowed certain timings to be more blessed than others,
he has allowed certain times of the day and night, certain times of the month, certain types of the years to be more likely that a draw is responded to. And this is beautiful. Why? Because it gives the person extended hope, it makes them even more enthusiastic during those times had all times been equal, then this would not have been achieved. But by allowing certain times to be more blesses more holy, than the person's enthusiasm goes up, and his humility and who should have to go up. So this is the beauty of the mercy of Allah, that he has allowed for these timings to exist that allow us to worship a lot more that allow us to have more pressure and more humidity during drought. Likewise,
there are certain factors, certain conditions when a person is in the differences, the timing, and the condition is obvious the condition for example, the traveler does not have timing, the timing, for example, the length of the night. So we're going to discuss the factors and the timing, where one is more likely to be responded to.
The first timing. And the one in which, frankly, is most of the ideas have been narrated about who shows you it's important, is the last third of the night,
the last third of the night, this is where over 1520 ideas have been narrated about the blessings of the last third of the night. So many Hadith the prophets of the lover I sent him described that this is the time where adrar has more likely to be accepted. In fact, Allah Himself describes in the Quran weapon as howdy homea stuff that they used to seek forgiveness towards the late part of the night, the early dawn, there was seek forgiveness at this time alleged scribes to believers, and in one had been able to be a lot wiser says, Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down during the last third of the night, to the skies of the heavens, and he cries out who is there that is making dua to me,
so I can respond. Who is there that is asking me so I can give? Who is there that is seeking my forgiveness, so that I can forgive? three separate questions, each one the same thing? Who is asking so I can respond who is making blah I can get? who is seeking forgiveness, I can forgive him. The last third of the night is one of the most powerful times that will be accepted by Allah. And why would it not be when the person has to give up his sleep has to give up his wife has to give up the most precious things to him do will do take the sleep away from his eyes, and then stand up in Salah, pray to hundreds and then raise his hands up to Allah subhanho wa Taala no one in the whole
world maybe even his wife doesn't know what he is doing pure sincerity.
No one can see him, no one can see his his deeds here. He is doing this only for the sake of Allah. Therefore, this is one of the times that is the most acceptable time for the drive to be asked by a lot. In one I have the odd one the children of use of all of you know the story of use of the children of use of when they acknowledge their mistake and what they did the children of jacoba excuse me, they acknowledge their mistake and they seek forgiveness from your hope before trying to kill us and sending into slavery. They say our father asked forgiveness for us, they still Filipinas rubella. So the father says so first filter, I will ask after a while the scholars of the few said
he wanted to ask during the last third of the night they were in the daytime. He says I will ask not right now. Why? Because he wanted his right to be accepted. So he says I will ask during the last third of the night. This is some are democracies have said this.
We can conclude this section by quoting Abu Bakar to show the famous causes of the past he said he is not a wise man who has a need to Allah. Yes, he sleeps away his need at night.
He is not a wise man who needs his to accept it. Yes, he sleeps at night, hit the surface. If you really want you to actually accept
Did you have to be up at night praying to Allah. This is the first time that Allah subhanho wa Taala. But at the profit center has told us that this will be accepted or is more possibility to be accepted. Another timing is when the event is being called, at the time while the event is being given. This is a time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to us are never rejected or hardly rejected the draw during the event and the drop when the two armies meet. When you're facing an army, that time with the Muslim obviously, sincerity at this point of time will be at an all time high.
And you can imagine why you're going to face the MacArthur army here, that time it also winds up as that is being given, this is a time when there will not be rejected, yet another time is between the event and a comma. So, the first one is while the design is being given, obviously, you should respond to the event while he says and you can also make a draft at that time. The second is after the other between the event and the karma. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the duel between the event and the karma is not refused, therefore offers
between the event and the common.
Also during the Salah itself there are many many times during the Salah one has more probability to be accepted of them is as soon as the prayer starts when you say Allahu Akbar before saying factor of them is when you stand up again after record of them is in the center of them is before that the snip. They know them and after the setup we're going to discuss these in more detail right now. Of the two eyes that also has the greatest chance of being accepted is when a person is in such them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said of chroma coonan Abdullah Abdullah, who is tragic, the closest a person can come to his Lord is while he is infested. So he says for up to 50 minutes,
increase your drop in your face for come in and use the Java welcome, it is strongly highly likely impossible, that result will be responded to
while you're inside of the province of Listen, instead, this is the closest that you can come to your Lord, Your advisor accepted, therefore increase your drugs during this time.
And therefore the scholars say that even if you don't speak Arabic, you can even make your daughter in another tongue besides Arabic. Because the law speaks all languages you can hear all languages. Some of the questions were asked and I didn't answer them because we're going to talk about it. Now. Some people said can I make other than Arabic? Of course, do you think Allah only understands Arabic I would have been a lot understands all languages. Therefore you're allowed to make Doha in any language. Obviously Arabic is the preferred language because it is the language of Islam. But if you don't speak Arabic, then you can allow you should make dua in your own mother tongue for whatever
you want. Whether it be in says that whether it be anytime is allowed to make Dre and others that are also of the times that God has responded to is at the end of Allah at the end of Salah
to give us a bit of a surge release at once we were praying and the prophets Allah sent him and I will remember we're all here, when I sat down, the final step is to shuffle before the sneem I praise Allah and essential lambda upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then started making the Profit System he was watching him an economist with his in prayer. He is watching him and he says, Ask and you shall be given, asking you shall be given at this point in time. After the sisterhood before the slim. This is another good time to make drop.
Likewise after that the slim as well. Once you say setup after the Disney the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Omar will lie in Nila Hedberg, I swear by Allah I love you, fella to Diamond Jubilee coolness Allah Do not forget to say at the end of every dollar that all law our Indiana decree goes up. Basically this to us the prophets have said I love you tomorrow. So make this to at this time. Therefore showing you that this time is a time where one should make the law. now realize the difference between congregational and private drive. Private drive you should do it after the decision not to congressional drive that is commonly practice this has no basis in the coroner
center after the master chairman is allowed to make a private drive.
Another time that is responded to we have already quoted the Hadoop is when the Army's needs the prophets have said and said that, at this time is never rejected. Yet another timing of drag which allows response to is one hour on Friday.
every single Friday, there is an hour whenever you make a rush and Hannah with added will respond to it. The Prophet salallahu idea send them said Friday has 12 hours to the day of Friday less than ideal Fridays 12 hours to it. There is one hour during which if a Muslim asks Allah for anything, Allah will give it to him.
In some narrations, he said it is fine to during the last hour of Africa. In other words between us and Muslim before sunset. And this other narration other scholars say this is when the Imam is getting the hook but other stages when the Imam is sitting down between the two hotels there's a lot of setup which our is this but basically on Friday. This is
time that you should make lots of plenty of thought, especially during these times of the scholars have discussed basically when the Imam sits down and then he stands up this short you know few minutes introduce and also during the later part of the day before sunset, and this seems to be the stronger opinion before sunset. At this time we should increase when this is the time when a lesson kinda without a response to the drop. Yet another timing that routers responded to is after performing Google any will do
the proper solo set and said that no one amongst you makes will do perfectly, and then says Chateau La ilaha illallah wa, ala
Muhammad and I'm doing what a pseudo except that all eight doors of gender are open for him, and he can enter gender through whichever door he pleases. So the fact that genders doors are open, the scholars say this is a timing then that one should increase one's drop because all of the doors of gender are open and ready to receive it.
Yet another timing which is encouraged is before drinking the water absorbs the blessing water absorbs the profits lesson of said describing the blessings of Zamzam. He says Zamzam is the food which has the most the most blessings all of the best in the food the most blushes, food is the food or the drink of gumbo. Therefore, to drink some some water the profitsystem encouraged it. And in what he said he said this is the difference between the Muslim and the monastic to drink lots of water. Samson Excuse me. And in one hand, he said, not with me, Lima Shu de vida, that the water of Zamzam is for the reason that he drank it in other words, there is one drive that you make before
something Allah will give it to you to rephrase the Hadith in modern English, whatever you drink something for you will be given it that you make before drinking something you will be given it therefore many of the scholars of the past before making drinking some of them they would make any lengthy two songs throughout to increase their knowledge to make them pipe yeah buses well he would make lengthy throughout before drinking themselves. So the Zamzam water is a blessing water and the Nia that you drink it for the drive that you drink it for there's a strong possibility that Allah subhana wa Jalla will respond to that draft. Yet another timing that his blessing is obviously the
month of Ramadan and especially later to powdered sugar the Allahu anhu says Yasuo Allah what blog Should I make, if I find a little puppet and he basically every night of the last five days what what should I make showing you that it is preferable to make drought and these nights it is strongly encouraged. So the Prophet says that instead, say along the in the cartoons that people are finding love in Nicaragua
are finding Although you are forgiving, and love to forgive, so forgive me, showing you that the days and the nights of Ramadan, especially the odd nights are the last 10 days today. So for the night, these are nights which it is encouraged to make drawing. And like we said, we're talking about the etiquettes of drama. It is good to make drama privately and at home as well. Many people have this concept that once they finish that always a lot such as the rest of the night is there's no this is a night you need to spend a weekend to ask and save the interior, especially privately This is more likely that you will be responded to versus the public. Why? Because the public while
you don't have that much humidity you are not asking a man is asking for you're not asking what you want. When you're alone. You're asking what you want, your demand goes up, your show goes up, your humility goes up. This too is more likely to be responded to than the driving question. Yet most of us after we finish the prayer class we think we're done for the night. On the contrary, it is better not to pray in the masjid and pray entirely in your house because it is nothing. But if you wish to pray in the masjid fine, but don't forget your portion of the house as well, especially during the odd Night of the last 10 minutes of Ramadan. Likewise, during all of the occasions of Hajj, the end
of the cover inside the cabinet the process of would make between sofa and metal on sofa and on muddler, okay in the plains of Mina, in the presence of artifacts, especially out of the 10 days of look at all of these times indications of hedge has itself is a blessing at times, especially when we were at hedge and especially during the day of alpha if we are out of the process or the last set of bullet dries up out of the best of our trading. And this in and of itself is enough of an incentive to go for a hedge even though there are 1000s and 1000s of incentives. But this one incentives enough of an incentive to stand on the plane of out offend anybody who's going for hedge
notice this ceiling all around you 1000s literally millions of people, all of them standing up praying to Allah.
This is a time as a professor phenom said that Allah Himself comes down and he boasts to the angels.
Look at my servants they have come from all parts of the goal. And literally they have come from all parts of the globe.
They have come and they are dusty and tired and disheveled. They have a dirty appearance, because then this is what's going to happen. And they have only come because of a feel of me and a lot of me bear witness and have forgiven all of that and given them what they desire. The
throughout America is the best out of the is the best it can be made.
Therefore, on this day, obviously, the person should try his utmost to make every two hours every single day. If he is an artifact, and somebody might even say even if he's not an artifact leaves to get some blessings of it filming throughout on the night of the future, but the Hadees applies to the ones in our house. This applies to the ones during Hajj.
Likewise, one of the times we should do is accept it is when rainfall is something many of us don't know. The prophets have said have said to us are never returned. The dry when the event is being called dry when rain falls, dry when rain falls. Because in one IDC said that the rain is an indication of the mercy of Allah. Therefore Allah's mercy is coming down. So it is a time when the drought is responded to when rain falls in one direction, the process of when rain was falling. He took his coke and he put it out into the rain. So it became wet. He was sitting in a shaded sheltered area, he took his cloak and made it a little bit wet. So I said why did you do the shadow
sutala. He said that this rain basically it has just come for the mercy of my vote, it is close to the mercy of my Lord. So just to get some of the verses. So the point is that when rain falls in general, this is a time of the mercy of Allah. So it is a time to make as well. And other other situations and timings which can be made. We have to summarize them to move on to the next topic, which is the conditions during which thrive is answered. The first topic was the timing. Now we're going to talk about the conditions. What are those situations that a person is in that when he is in them, the draw has more of a chance of being responded to
the single most of the situation, which warrants the response to the drop is a person who is in severe circumstances, the one who is hope has been cut off, literally like I wouldn't drowning the person joining or a person who's surrounded by an army. This is the time when it seems there is no hope that he has the most hope for the body responded to. And this is a sign of the lost power analyzer. When it appears that there is no hope this is a time when he has the most hope of being responded to so many is a made up boy
who is there that respond to the call of the one in distress, the one in distress The one who has no hope. And that is why we said even the kuffar when the writing in the oceans, and their hope is cut off when they preach would like to save them. Allah saves them back to them
because they show their class.
And one of the scholars of the past said that I have no example to give of the hope that a person has from Allah, except like one who has been shipped to a shipwreck, and he is drowning holding on to a plank in the middle of the ocean, crying out Oh Allah save me a little less signal. In other words, this is the time when a low really will save him
hope beyond hope there is no hope for him. But when he puts his hope in Allah, Allah will provide a way out.
So this is the single most situation when you're allowed will be responded to when it appears that you have no hope anyone else. And what are the reasons for this is because that will give you a flood.
How much worse is you can you be when you are literally drowning if you like there you will have a sincerity that you have never experienced in your life. Because you know this is your only way out. So when you show that sincerity, Allah subhanho wa Taala then respond to that sincerity and saves you from that situation. And like we have quoted before so many of the Prophet, the prophet Yunus is a primary example of this. All hope is cut off lost in the depths of darkness of the ocean. No one can hear or see him no one even knows that his situation, drowning in the stomach of a will. Why not at the Buddha Mati.
He calls out from the darkness Allah Himself calls the darkness, the darkness of the will the darkness of the depths of the ocean, the darkness of the night, the darkness of the storm, the depths of the darkness, he calls out
of Hanukkah iniquity consuming of botany. And this is a dry we will learn it is a drug that is responded to that in the interest of Hanukkah.
So when he made this to ask Allah subhana wa tada responded to his draft and saved him from that situation. Yet another instance or another occasion that a person when he is in his life has responded to is when other people have wronged him
when other human beings have taken his rights away from him, in this situation, his drama is responded to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Here the Torah of the world who has been warned, for it goes to the skies faster than lightning faster than sparks of light. It is raised faster than light itself is raised. In another Hadith, he said that three peoples are never rejected, the one who is fasting until he breaks this fast, the just ruler and the one who has been wronged his to Allah raises it above the clouds and the doors of the skies open up for it. And Allah himself says what exactly was your lovely
The only one that you would abide by my honor and glory I will help you, even if it's after some time, even if after some period, but eventually I will respond to your once again show you that Allah is the one he cannot stand injustice. Allah cannot stand to really avoid
whenever tyranny and injustice and oppression exists, Allah subhana wa tada will have assurity responded to that to us. And by the way, as a side point here, nothing to do with the copy or maybe it is to do
this is of the most
clear indications that inshallah our brothers instead of stealing fish feed of assurity, they will be answered, because they have been oppressed worse than animals, dogs, and they have been oppressed like a witch, it is not even imaginable. And instead of helping them, the non Muslims, instead of even having some sympathy for them, they have their sympathies are towards the time, they are helping the tyrants and the oppressors. And it is not possible that Allah can allow this, to go on like this. They have broken all bounds of humanity, but they have done therefore to up and have hope that after this, inshallah, the light at the end of the tunnel is very close. And the beginning,
around let's say 510 years ago, I my truck was very pessimistic, I was going to think that we're never going to get to any for the feedback for many years it looks like but in the event of this of the last year or two, the extreme oppression and injustice, I have changed my mind, because it is not possible that Allah Subhana Allah can allow such oppression to exist, and not respond to it. And that is why an accomplice society, if it is just a love might allow them to live, live in mind. But when it becomes unjust, no matter how powerful it is, when it becomes tyrannical, that Allah destroys that society, he might allow the corporate society to live because it's just a love of
justice. But Allah does not stand injustice. So the carpet society, when it becomes unjust and oppressive, then that complex society must be destroyed. Never has existed in in human history.
even look at it yourself, never has an oppressive regime lasted for a long time, maybe a generation at most, once it out is doing all those tyrannies allows it. But when he starts killing those babies,
when he when he gave the commandment to kill those babies, that his death came from one of those babies that he that he ordered to be killed was
when you reach the limit of oppression, that is where the struggle breaker. So as a side point and Sharla children have hope. The end of these countries is very close these oppressive countries that are pressing the Muslims, it cannot last for too long. And shall obviously this This doesn't mean we shouldn't do anything. Don't take this as of course we do it. But inshallah the end for these countries is very close because Allah does not allow this injustice to exist. Coming back to the topic.
Like we said the two out of the one who has been wronged is responded to.
Obviously we're talking about the drive that is done against the one who wants him.
Someone has unjustly stolen your money tricked you embezzled you, someone has done something against you. You make a dua against him, Allah will have a surety respond to that. This is allows justice, Allah mercy. When the week have no weapon, Allah becomes a weapon. You have nothing because you can do to get your rights back. Allah will take your rights back on your behalf. Saudi Arabia will cost the state is competitive. We always quoted him but his own was always accepted.
Once he was appointed as a governor of one of the provinces.
So some people complained unjustly about him. realize he's one of the 10 archenemy, Bashara vagenda, he cannot be unjust. Some people didn't like him, and they concocted lies against him. So they complained to Omar. So Omar then sent messengers to the message and said, Tell me what are your problems they can say? Why do you not like him?
every message that the messengers went to, they found nothing but praise. Obviously, he's one of the 10 companions, but in one mustard one match to them, one of the evil people, he stood up, and he said, If you really want to know the truth, then know that Sam is not just in his rulings, nor that he distributes the money properly. nor is he easy with us. Pure lies, pure lies.
So when Syed heard this, he stood up, and he said, Oh Allah, if he is lying, then make him blind. Give him a long life and make matters difficult for
the narrator of this had he the one who heard it from from sight. He said, I saw the same man after a long time.
his eyelids were drooping out of his age. They were like sacks of
flesh because of his age. And his eyesight he had he had become blind. And he would harass the young girls on the streets to touch them on the streets. Out of the sign of disrespect. I mean, this is the worst of society, all the society he
Whenever someone asked him what happened to you also and so, he would say that a site has been accepted against
the site has been accepted against me. Once in another in another instance, another of the Sahaba site had been Zaid.
Some of the evil people accused him of stealing their property, his neighbors, basically, it was a woman, his neighbor, she said that SATs aid has built a wall unjustly taking away some of my property as well. You know, in those days, there were no end, you know, GPS systems or whatever they were basically a wall to marketing the line, the marketing the properties. So she accused her of building the wall in her property taking a stake a significant portion of her property. So I became angry at her and I said, Do you dare accuse me of stealing land when I heard the Prophet system say that he who steals land on the Day of Judgment, Allah will make that land darkness and put it on his
shoulder, basically punish him by that very land? She said, No, you are stolen from me. And she took it to the court of law, the policy, and she accused side of stealing his land. And this was an unjust accusation. So say at the end, he said, Oh Allah, if she is lying, then make her blind and make her grave in that land. He didn't even go to court, he just gave her the light. He said, If you're going to stoop this low, then he just made it to her, oh, Allah, if she's lying, make her blind, and make her grave in that land, make that the cause of her death.
So she became blind.
And one day she was in that garden that she had accused I'd have taken it was obviously sighs own garden, but she had taken in that way. And she was trying to find her way. She got lost in the garden. And she was trying to find her way out. And she fell down into a well, and they could not take her out of the woods. So that became her grateful.
To her of the mother Doom is a powerful weapon. That is why when the Prophet Christendom says why they've been Jebin, he said, beware of the draw of the one whom you wronged, because nothing can come between it.
And another idea, he said, even the fascist even if he's evil, his while we responded to, because he's evil will be against him, but that's why will be against you. Even if a person is evil, his drug if he has been wronged, will be accepted. And this once again shows you who have not
at all, just Almighty all powerful, he will not allow oppression and injustice. Like the other Hadith says that accorded a lot swears by my honor and glory, I will help you even if it is after some time.
So those people who are being oppressed in the land, have hope inshallah Allah will have a surety respond to their to another person whose drives accepted is the traveler, the traveler, the the proper system said, three people described his respects as accepted. The first is a dog dog who has been long, the second the traveler, and the third the dog, the Father, for the son. So the drive the traveler, especially when he was probably for some good reasons, like for jihad or for hydropool formula for seeking knowledge. But even if it's not just a traveler, as long as your reason is hella, his drive is accepted, even if he's traveling for money to another job, Allah's mercy, the
Traveling is cut off from family and friends, he has a difficult situation while he's traveling, cut off from his place of residence. So in a lush mercy, he allows the travelers to ask to be accepted. Yet another case was accepted is the parent against the son or their daughter, daughter. And we mentioned this before, the prophet SAW sent him said three or the drivers have accepted the last one was the daughter of the Father, for or against his son. And obviously the mother for against the Son and the mother for against the daughter. Although this applies as well, the same concept is there, for or against, realize this
for meaning you want something good to happen against meaning you want something bad to happen, both types of throughout will be responded to.
This is alleged Mercy of Allah, Danny justice, the way that the children treat the parents, so to when the parents later Allah will respond to that. So if the children are good to the parents, there's what the parents will make to avoid them and Allah will respond to that. And if the children are bad towards the parents and the parents will make against them, and therefore our lesson, I will respond to that, as well.
Therefore, children, be careful that your relationship to your parents, they are your agenda, and you're not literally they are your paradise and your health. The way you treat them will judge who you are the parents also be careful. If you ever get angry at your children, don't make that against like we said, Do whatever you want, but do not make dua against because Allah subhanaw taala might make accept that you yourself will regret that data has been responded to, like the president said do not make against your family and children. Because Allah has given the parents authority over the children, therefore there will also be accepted for the children.
Another situation is the exact opposite. The children for the parents, especially after their death, especially after their death, the prophet SAW said and said that once a person dies, his good deeds are cut off except for three. One of them is a son
pays for his parents and obviously the doctor who pays for the parents as well. Basically, once your parents died, then the rights upon you have not finished, they still have rights over you that you need to ask for them daily, constantly. A bit silly when he was an offender, when he was 18, you always need to ask for your parents as well. Forgive our children's Oklahoma camera, Ben from Alabama. So you know, so many grants Allah commands in the Quran, to pray for your parents. So, once the parents died, this does not mean that obligation towards them has stopped. Yet another situation, person who is accepted is the one who is fasting. Like the person who said three drives
are never rejected of them is the one who is fasting, in one nourish and he said, the one who is about to break his fast has a door that would not be rejected. So right when you sit down for a thought, if you can concentrate now this is a sign of the flow. If you can concentrate after being hungry for so many hours, and you have all these beautiful foods in front of you. This is a good sign of the class. But in any case, this is the time when you will be accepted in sha Allah by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Yet another situation is the one after reciting the Quran. He has a drop that Allah subhanaw taala accepts, because nsmc Malik and other compounds when they finish the Quran, they will call their families and they will make dua to have their families forgiven and increased in their Rama and mercy. Also, when you're going for hygiene, Ramadan, jihad, all of these situations, any type of goodie that you're doing it when you make a glass of Allah, this is a situation that allow a response to your draft. And the last point that we mentioned before moving on to the next topic is that for a Muslim in his absence, when he is not in front of you, when you make love to someone
while he is not there.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, there is no Muslim who makes throughout for his Muslim brother, except that an angel says and to be the same as well.
So you pray for your Muslim brother Allah, increase his wealth, increase his children, make him guidance, Islam, an angel will come and pray and you have the same as well.
Look at the beauty of Islam, when you make a draft for your brother, you an angel is asking that you get the same as well. And the draft of an angel is obviously strongly accepted, the possibilities of it being accepted are more than your own.
So when you make a sincere draft for your Muslim brother knows that you are in fact making a draft for yourself. That is why some of the scholars of the past when they needed something, they would pray to Allah to bless their brothers with something with that thing. If they needed good health, they would pay all love Give so and so good health, because they knew that the angel would then pray for him to have good health as well.
Once one of the companions
ganja pointed out did he came to overdose in Syria, and he said I'm going to go for Hajj. So he said in that case, do not forget to make dua for us. Because I heard the prophets of Allah has heard him say that there are other Muslim it is acid is responded to. And Allah assigns an angel, that every time he makes a draw for his brother, the angel says, mean unto you the same as well.
So this is an incentive to make to offer our brothers, and how few of us make to our brothers. Meaning our brothers and fate. Let's test our blood brothers, brothers and faith as well. How few of us think about our Muslim brothers and sisters,
especially those that are close to us.
And by the way, this is a sign of emerge. When you make too hard for your friend, for Allah increase his Well, what's more sign of better conduct mean? You really want good for him? Oh Allah guide him, oh, Allah makes him a good Muslim. Look at this image and indicative of imagine, imagine a society where everybody is praying for the other person. How will the society be? Will there be any oppression? Will there be any Riba and he's stealing any backbiting any slander, how, when you love your British so much, you're actually praying for him.
Imagine the level of demand that means
therefore it only makes sense that when you have reached that level, then your drive is responded to. So if you want something, pray for yourself and pray for your Muslim Brothers as well that Allah grants them, that situation as well. And one final thing, which is also important, the person who remembers a lot all the time, his drive is always responded to. We mentioned a similar point before when you show your love of Allah and your devotion to Allah when you show that you're a pious servants of Allah constantly beside him for our course in the making, because then this is an indication that your reply will be responded to in one Heidi's which is slightly weaker provinces
are supported so said that the one who constantly resizes to hold on constantly remembers Allah. Allah gives him more than the one who makes it.
Because he doesn't have time for that because it is put on he always presents but I'm always remembering Allah because the prophets of the cinemas who said Allah give him more than the one who makes star because he was he didn't make glad because he was engaged in it because
Hello, so he will get more than the one who makes it. So the one who remembers a lot constantly is, is also accepted and responded to by Allah subhana wa Tada. We'll just move on to another topic, the factors that help a person's drive being answered, and the factors that prevent drivers from being answered. And after we finished with this topic, then we'll take the break for dinner, and then come back for the final talk to each other the question and answer in detail. Many of these factors have been lifted before but for the sake of completeness, we'll mention them again.
Firstly, sincerity, the single most factor that ensures being accepted as sincerity is lost. When you pray and you pray with your heart and soul.
That That is why the two out of the carpet is accepted. That is why the two of you believed himself was accepted. Islam has to be avoided either you'll be baffled, he knew he has no chance. Except for logistics. Therefore, it leads to a lot. And it's a lot of responsibility. Please ensure that he can respond to our eyes as well. Another aspect that increases the chances of drop is to expect to the best of luck, like we mentioned that Huggies before may drop to a lot when you are searching that a lot will respond to you. And we also mentioned the Hadith that the prophet SAW sensor that Allah subhana wa tada says, that if all of you will just stand in front of me and ask me for everything
that you desire, and that was to give them all that they desire, that was still not decrease my Dominion my kingship, just like when a needle is placed in an ocean, it does not diminish the water of the ocean. So Allen's generosity is so much his kingdom is so great. That asked and asked a lot expecting for a response from that deed. Yet another aspect that increases the chances of drop is doing good deeds, doing good deeds. When you increase your good deeds, then this increases your chances of being responded to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Bring the orphan close to you and be nice to him and wipe his head. This is exactly what the person said wipe his head. Be nice to
him, give him food and feed him from your food. If you do so, your heart will become soft and your needs fulfilled your ego has responded.
When you are kind to the orphan, when you do any good deed, then Allah subhana wa tada will respond to your drama as well.
Once understood, pneumatic person came to him and he said, oh no big draw for me the same as phrase that we all hear. Thank God for me. And I said, verily, is raised up by good deeds.
You want me to make go out for you, I'll tell you something better do good deeds and they will act as wings to raise your ground up to Allah.
Obviously, the more pious a person is, the greater his chances are, that the drop will be responded to another scholar Weber even whenever he said, the example of the one who makes the art without doing any good deeds is like the one who tries to shoot arrows but he does not have a boat.
If you don't have good days, what to lift up the door to Allah. So when you're making out especially when you have something you want to be responded to increase your good deeds, increase your salary, increase your zecca increase your charity and your acts of worship, the know that your chances of drop also go up.
Yet another aspect that increases the chances of being responded to is fulfilling the rights of the parents. And we learned this from the story of George and there is another instance as well, and that is the story of voice alchemy, waste of money, he was a person who was afflicted with leprosy, but his mother made it out for him and Allah was cured an electrode him of that leprosy except for one place of his body, once one small staircase, one small amount of if you like electricity was left on his body. So the process of the level as Adam said, they will come to you away from Fermi when he comes, ask him to make up for you. Because he is pious to his mother, because he is pious to
In other words, because a waste fulfills the rights of his parents, his brows are responded to by Allah.
Do you want me to give you a story of how pious always was to his parents? his mother, his father had passed away. Always wanted to go visit the prophets of the La Jolla center. He was in Yemen. He asked permission for his mother from his mother to go visit the prophets of Allah ye send them so his mother said okay go would come back immediately. Because I need you I cannot live without you basically. So always went to Medina travels from Yemen to Medina when he entered Medina, and he went to the house of I feel the low Mmm hmm. She said the proper solo Center has been has gone on an expedition he should return soon in a few days, maybe.
So always coming back and the West back to him because his mother said, Come back immediately. And he gave up the charge of being a father. He never met the prophecy. He gave up that church because of his mother.
Therefore, the prophet SAW sort of said the best of the taboo is a waste of
the best fabric. He never met the profits of the business. He's not even a hobby. And he told me Oh, they will come to you later on. And it did happen after the Prophet said, wait till he came back to Medina, what was the result? They will come to you a person by the name of whistle funny when he comes you over asked him that Allah forgive me, ask him to pray to Allah for you. That is how pious away so suddenly was that the Prophet says it is telling oma to ask him to make Dawson.
So every time a person or the group of from Yemen will come, Oman will always go out in Britain and see where his voice is the voice memos to when finally he met, awake, and he said, Are you awake? He said, Yes. Are you with me? He said, Yes. Are you fulfilling the rest of the matter? He said, Yes. Are you afflicted with leprosy? Basically all of the conditions of the process and described even though the process of never mentioned
and went away, she kept on saying yes, then almost said, I heard the prophets of certain state they will come to you whistle company, when he comes, seek, tell him or ask him to ask Allah to forgive you. Therefore, when asked him to ask electrification so fulfilling the rights of the parents is one of the primary ways that once drops is responded to
another situation that or another condition that increases the chances of Thrive being responded to, is to repent from the previous sins. When you realize that you have fallen short in your worship of Allah that you have sinned against a lot, and you repent from your sins. This is a
indication that your gravelled responded to profit North filled with people supposed to sell for a book with no kind of profit more said, because people seek forgiveness, it's still build up. But if you do so Allah will send rain upon you, and He will increase your money and children and He will give you gardens and He will give you rivers. So Toba repentance increases the blessings of Allah, when you realize that you have fallen short in your worship of Allah, when you realize you have not been a good Muslim, and you admit to Allah, and you seek His forgiveness for this, then this is one of the ways that your job will be responded to. Yet another way that drys responded to one of those
situations is to have a disheveled appearance. Now, this doesn't mean that we purposely make ourselves look bad. But when the situation arises, for example, that alpha and hedge, for example, the traveler, we're going to look tired, hungry, thirsty, then realize that this is one of the situations that Allah likes. Obviously, the show is unique to Allah that at this time you raise your hands to Allah. That is why the traveler also his drive is accepted because he is in this state as well.
Another factor that increases the chances of being accepted is to make it at the time to respond and active faces of response. And we mentioned these before, the times the response and the conditions of response. And the places obviously, they are the Holy Face of Islam. You mentioned that how long demonstrated the process of love I didn't mention that upfront. And also the message of Allah all of the massages are good places to practice a logo why'd you send him said that the massages are places beloved to Allah and the markets are places that are hated to Allah. Because the markets is where all the evil occurs, where the duty occurs, where lying and cheating where other bad things occur.
The most beloved places for a lot of the messages and the most hated places are the
market places there those are things that Allah subhana wa tada does not like inshallah we have 10 minutes left, we will conclude by quickly talking about the factors that prevented us from being responded to, once again, we mentioned many of these before, but for the sake of completeness, we'll mention them again.
matter which prevents law from being responded to is not having to close praying to others in a law which is *, where someone prays to other than Allah, this automatically makes them anonymous. Even a connection to our to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam This is an act of ship. Yeah, sure. acidity This is just Yasuda Allah gave me this and that this is not allowed to make go out to the prophets of the love Arthur is the same as when the Christians make Jesus Christ Oh, Jesus, forgive me.
And if this is the case, and how much most more so to go to the saints, to go to the grave, to go to grave worship, yeah, the cardinal Gilani or so. So, this is the essence of ship, the essence of ship. So to call out to other than a lock automatically notifies you and makes you anonymous.
And therefore the comfort when he prays to Allah because of the class we said, Islam might be responded to because he prays to Allah.
Another aspect which makes you throw out not responded to, like we said, is how long sustenance when you earn when you eat when you drink when you were from how long and recorded the headache before the purpose of the loss and described the traveler who was dusty and dirty and tired. And he raised his hands to Allah. And he said, Yeah, I'll be Rob. And yet the profitsystem said he ate from heroin. He drank from heroin, he workloads from heroin and he was nourished from heroin. Therefore, how does he expect the response
showing you that when you eat and drink from home, this is one of the primary factors that prevent us from being accepted by Allah. Kinda What's
another aspect that prevents us from being accepted is since since in one heartbeat the profits are large and instead, the size of the heavens open in the middle of the night.
And the drop of every person is responded to, except
the zanya, the prostitute if you like, who is selling her body, and the tax collector who is taking money unjustly. Basically, when these people are doing their sins, then they have no hope of a God being responded to. From this heavy. The other man has said that sins act as a barrier between you and your to have
that when you do a sin, it acts as a barrier. It acts as a closed door, you will your throat will not go up to the heavens, every sin. every sin is one more impediment, and yours are being accepted. Just like every good deed is one more path that will raise you to have, the more pious you are the more chances without being accepted. The more cynical you are, the more cynical you are, the less chances of your job being accepted as well.
Another aspect which causes our job to be ignored and rejected, is when we leave advising one another. When we leave basically, it's called an Arabic, a little bit narrow when
we leave enjoining what is right and prohibiting what is wrong.
We see a Muslim who is drinking, and we don't care about it, we just ignore it. We see a Muslim involved in drugs, we don't advise them. We see a Muslim who doesn't pray, we don't tell them to fear Allah start praying.
When we stop giving advice to one another, then Allah will not respond to
the prophet SAW The love I said and said, I swear by Allah, you will have assurity command what is good and forbid what is evil, or else Allah will send upon you a punishment, so that you will make to act to him and your drive will not be responded to.
Your I will not be responded to.
The Muslim does not only concern himself with his own affairs, he concerns himself with the affair of his Muslim brothers and sisters, especially when they are public. Well, you know, that your friend is not praying? How can you remain quiet. When you know that he's involved in major sins, you must go in advice. If you were to leave this, then this is a sign that you don't care about the Muslim woman. Therefore, Allah doesn't care about you. Therefore, you will not be responded to
yet another aspect that
shows you that yet another aspect that goes against the etiquette of drama and make up one that Allah does not respond to is being hasty. We said being hasty means you make it up and then when it is not responded to you give up the drought because you say Oh Allah I have made dry has made drought you have not responded then you give up the drought. This is exactly the reason why you thought it would not be responded to like we said continue to the graph, even if the response is not shown to you likewise becoming tired or giving up or asking for something prohibited all of these go against the etiquette of draw therefore to abandon them brings about situations where you will not
be responded to with this inshallah we will conclude this talk. I'd open the floor for questions. And it's all the 10 minute question answer. And then after that we'll have a dinner break and then come back after
any questions inshallah.
We still have some previous questions.
What are the specific rulings regarding congregational drama?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would generally not make congregational drives, he would generally pray by himself. Or if he made a draw and said it out loud, it would not be by calling the people those that were there, they would say I mean, it is not recorded, as far as I know, to the best of my knowledge that he specifically called the Muslims just to make a drop.
Only during the whole development, although this is where they're where he makes draft for the second part of the football. But he would not make glass for example, after the prayers that is common the practice of our time, whether in my mixes like everyone behind him, says me, the Prophet sallallahu never did. So. Now they did the Sahaba after him, so that it is preferable to be done in private individually. And on occasion, like the host, like the witches, like the time to time or the slaughter away from the wizard further, it is allowed to do it in a congregation Lee, but the author of the general ruling is that draft should be done privately between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala
Is it okay to make blocks to the fourth prayer by raising their hands regularly? It is okay it is one of the timings of response.
But regularly here is where the problem comes because the process has ended not with all this, he would do it sometimes he would not do it all the time. So do it sometimes follow the sin all the way, do it sometimes and leave it sometimes as well.
Is it preferable to make God by raising hands after prayer or to make our drinks to do both of them don't say if we're and say this, and this, they are insane, and make up with your hands raised. But between the two insights that has a greater chance of being responded to, but don't say why should I do this, or shall do this or that all of these timings that we have mentioned all of these situations, try to make drop during all of them.
Is it better to form to hazard alone or with your wife, and if it is with your wife is advice and silently or out loud, both of them are good and preferable. Both of them are good to do it alone or to do it with your wife in one of these, the process of them said that alone and last and he comes back and forgive the wife who wakes up the husband by throwing water in his face, I separate the hydrate and vice versa. There has been a waste his wife or by throwing the water in his face to praise Allah laugh at this and loves it. Likewise, if the husband wishes to pray privately, or the wife wishes to be privately without the husband or the wife doing the opposite, knowing that this
tool is part of perfection of human nature even want your spouse to know how you worship Allah Subhana Medina, both of them are good.
Is there a specific distance for the traveler?
Before he becomes a traveler? Yes, there is a distance of basically 81 miles as they say, that is a distance that is considered traveling when a person goes outside the city to this distance.
Okay, the question here is a good question. Is it good to offer a left something in return for the job being responded to, for example, to say, oh, a lot, if you respond to my drop, I will fast 10 days. Or if you, you know, kill my son, I'm going to sacrifice the sheep for you and your name and distribute it to the poor. This is an article called a measure a number where you make an old a vow that if you do this, then I will do that. Okay, then never
to actually make it is mcru. But once you have made it, it is legit to fulfill.
to actually make the number is something which is not good. Why? Because it is as if you're trying to do a business transaction with a law. And that is where the process having said that the narrative doesn't change other. It doesn't change what hasn't been predestined. But it takes something out of the mouths of the person, that might be a person who will not pass 10 days. But if he has given his thing, he will pass 10 days. So the Prophet has said that when you do this vow, it doesn't change further. It's what will happen will happen.
But it will take something out of the minds of the person. Yes, once you do that, then it becomes worship obligatory to fulfill it. If it is hot, if it's hot, obviously, then you cannot, if you say I'm going to do some active sugar corporate, obviously you don't. But if you say I'm going to do a hedge, for example, or I'm going to give the $1,000 in charity, or I'm going to, you know, 510 days, it becomes obligatory upon you to fulfill that method. It's part of the any, any swatch basically to do so. But to actually do so in the first place. That is discouraged because you're trying to do a business transaction with a larger group and I'm going to give you this if you give me that this is
the mentality of such a person. Therefore, to do nothing is not something which is encouraged, but it is not how long it is not something sinful. It is something which is discouraged maku once it is done, then if your drive is accepted or if that deed is done, then you must fulfill your part of another as well.
Does your food have to be the Bihar?
How can you close your heart on your clothes? Can you have this easy question when your money was hot on so you bought the clothes from how? For example, you need to earn money through interest and then you use that interest to buy clothes your clothes your home, or you stole money and use that money to buy clothes, your clothes or how
how does your food does your food have to be the be higher things about the burger means is can you eat me? Can you eat the meat of the over here? It's not really related to the topic at hand. If you were to ask my opinion,
it is not allowed to eat the meat that is available in the market here unless it is kosher. kosher is the meat that is a healthy dog. It is a mistake in my opinion, to equate McDonald's made the kosher meat when Allah says the meat of the People of the Book is halal. He means basically kosher meat, the wheat that they sacrifice, according to their laws and their traditions, which is kosher. So I have no qualms going and buying kosher meat, no problems. This is what Allah has made a lot for us. But I think it is not allowed to eat the meat that is available in these marketplaces. Because they have not mentioned the name of Allah nor have they sacrificed it properly. Or have they done
anything that is that should be done with it. And in fact, the only many of these people to sacrifice are not even Christians and Jews. They're atheists. So how can you take this me? In any case? That is a hippie question. There are many people that say the opposite of that no problem.
You said made golf for yourself and then others
so is it okay to make a draw for that
Rather only with full sincerity knowing that the angel will say amen to your prayer. Yes it is okay. But the perfection is to make up for yourself and for him like we said, when you make God for yourself your sincerity will be stronger but it is allowed to make God for someone else as well. Oh love forgiven old law grandson, gentlemen, oh, let me because business successful. Imagine like I said, this is beautiful. Imagine society where the businessman prays for his competition to make his business successful.
Imagine where that will lead to what types of Muslim unity what types of peace and tranquility will society come to? This is this is the beauty of Islam and because of the dropper his his competitors, Allah will bless his business as well. This is the beauty of it. Okay. But we said both is allows you can pray for yourself and him we can pray only for him.
Are you allowed to make dry in the dark? Yes, you are. Having light is not one of the conditions of making God doesn't Allah grant those things which are only good for us? Not necessarily. If you make draw for something sincerely, it is possible Allah give it to you. So it might not be for your good. That is why when you make blocks for something of this world, it is good to have a condition attached to it. If it is good for me. Oh Allah give me this job. If it is good for me, I would like give me this wife if she will be good for me. It is good to have a conditioner. Obviously for the matters of the the dean as well as the author we all said there is no such thing as something good
about everything is good. Oh ALLAH forgive me, save me for the fire and help graduates and although it is good, no conditions attached to their
true should we raise our hands and say I mean when doing Juma when the Imam is making So in my opinion is preferable back to at this time because we have nothing married from the Sahaba that they would do so in a mosque where they need to ask every salon Should I join them? I don't join them because in my opinion is an innovation. So I leave my hands down. And I do not join them at the same time. We don't cause a sudden commotion. This is a Kenny you know people don't understand this. You have to be wise and gentlemen, how you teach them. Don't just stand up and scream This is a bit it shouldn't
be wise about it. When you become a teacher when you start teaching them. You teach them the sooner you tell them it's time is what the process is, and not what we invent. We can invent a million things. But if we do so we're leaving the sooner the Profit System. If you want if you want to be gentle, for example, say brothers what you are doing. I don't know about this. Can you tell me where you found this act from? turn the situation around? If there's a bit of a push them in this manner? Brother, I don't know this is something new to me. Can you tell me why this is in the harness and he will not be able to tell you therefore you say you can tell him? Well, if it's not an opponent, how
come you're doing therefore it becomes an innovation for you. So any more questions?
If Muslims have current income, and they offer food and clothes to you, what should you do? If someone has a haram income, it is helpful for them but it's not helpful for you. Because if you were to do so this is this is a typical of this is going to extremes. If you own a shop, you do not have to ask the people that come in where do they get their money from your assuming that it's hard for them, if it's how long it's between them, and Allah subhanho wa Taala if someone has a small percentage of money from them, you can go to his house and he's no problem. Because that is between him and Allah. Now if the majority of his money is from out on for example, if he owns a liquor
store, that all of his money is haram, then you know everything is cut off. But if you own for example, a grocery store, which sells liquor and wine, a small percentage of his money is huddle. Therefore, the majority of his money is hollow. Therefore you can go into his money and assume that this is from his heart and push him to do so is going to extremes of the religion. There is only so few people that 100% their money is hella if you were to start asking him and being picky about this, you're gonna go to extreme a person earns how money then you don't have to ask him how he earned the best between him and alone. Unless you know for a fact this is a different thing. But in
general, you don't have to go to extremes any person invites you brother, where did you get this meat from? You assume is a Muslim? You assume he's giving you money? Unless you know for a fact that you know he's offering me to something that's a different story.
If you are doubtful about if they eat meat or not, and you only have it then you can ask them is this meat and helado is you just buy this from COVID or something I don't eat that meat. That's not a problem because because in this case, some person might follow the opinion that that lead is not how, for example, the meteor and the groceries, whereas you follow it is kind of you're just asking him for his position because you say I don't need that type of meat. This is a 50 issue. But you're asking about where he earns his money from this becomes the kind of this becomes excessiveness. Where did you earn the money to buy this means
that there's something wrong going on.
If there's cause for suspicion than Yes, if there's cause for suspicion, then yes, but if there's no cause for suspicion, then you're going to also strengthen the topic with this one. If they withdraw any more questions later, Dr. Sheldon?
Is there any sooner prayer? Before After the after the prayer and before or after as well, there's similar prayer to the process that was sometimes placed into prayer for cards before or after as well?
Is it allowed to make God where beer and liquor are served?
Yes, it is allowed to make dua at those places. But I hope you're not What are you doing? I hope you're
I hope you're not drinking that we are mine, which is not going to make your dog very acceptable. But it is allowed to make drama in those places, by the process of confession, phrase, your property. If you go to a restaurant, and there's beer as being sold at other tables, does that prohibit you from sitting there? No, it does not. You can sit at your table. And you can say Bismillah and say that to ask them, because what is permitted is sitting at the table, or should officer and not necessarily at a place humidor, obviously it is better to avoid that. But it is not haram to go there.
It's a question about women traveling again, I don't want to get lazy. We're talking about draw here.
My husband wants to get married to a second wife.
I pray to Allah making glass
not to put me in this trial.
Basically, this is a question Can I thank God in this manner? You know me? Am I
can I help him making a law or not getting married? Basically, the question is, she's in a contradictory position, where she's helping her husband find another wife, and at the same time they can grow, it doesn't happen.
I don't see any problem. Frankly, I don't see any problem if she makes, that never happens. But if it does happen, then be patient.
Praying for parents who has died without accepting Islam, no, obviously her parents was not a Muslim. If a parent died as a catheter was declared, it is not allowed to pray, make draw for him for anything, the profitsystem could not even pray for his parents as we know, you know, the profitsystem said my I asked Allah to allow me to visit my mother's grave. And he allowed me to do so I asked him to allow me to pray for her and he did not allow me to do so. This isn't a Muslim. So the probably the same could not even pray for his own parents. So the parents if they die in the state of COVID then you cannot make for them with that will conclude inshallah and start out
probably have a short talk and then we'll have an extended q&a and then finish up before any way before HGH and also clinical approaches
