Shaykh Yasir Qadhi talks about two topics – the wisdom behind a delayed response and the relationship of Dua with Qadr.
Every Dua is responded to and as opposed to what we normally assume.
Some wisdom behind a delayed response are as follows:
- Allah is the Malik.
- Man does not have a right over his Creator.
- A delay in response is a trial.
- Allah is the Most Wise.
- The matter might bring evil.
- Allah’s Choice is better than the choice of the servant.
- Man does not know the result of his Dua.
- Trials bring one closer to Allah.
Dua is the means that one uses to achieve the desired goals that one has, and this means in no way contradicts the destiny that has been written for that person. Divine Decree or Qadr cannot be made as an excuse to not make Dua. Dua is intrinsically related to Qadr so much so that it is a part of Qadr.
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Assam Derrida in meta who want to stay new who want to start fiddle when I was with him in Cerulean fusina woman's the RTR Marina de la hufa Mobile Allah woman you will who follow her the Allah cuando la
la la la la sharika la was Mohammed Abu hora pseudo ama but
in this final session of our half day long series, inshallah we will talk about two important topics in sha Allah Allah willing, the first one is the wisdom behind the delayed response. What are some of the benefits and so what are some of the wisdoms behind our not being accepted by Allah subhana wa tada or being accepted at a later time. And the second topic which we'll gloss over briefly, is the relationship of with other or predestination. And if we have some time, there are other other topics as well that we can discuss. The first topic is, why are some of our eyes not responded to? Well, this question is phrased incorrectly, because as we have learned today, every single day, is
responded to, therefore it is incorrect to even ask the question, why is it that my daughter has not been accepted? We have quoted numerous Iota numerous a Hadith, which proves that every single draft is responded to by Allah. But the response might not be the way that you see it. The response might not be what you specifically asked for. It might be something other than that, it might be that Allah subhana wa tada will take away some evil that was destined for you, or he will give you something better than what you asked for. But of a surety you will be responded to.
So this is the first point as read or is responded to this is one of the fundamental causes many of us have, we ask why isn't ortho responded to? Well, if you follow these conditions, that alignment is the process that I mentioned. If you follow the etiquettes of drought, and you avoided the factors that prevent that being responded to, then no of assurity have up like the prophets have sort of said, once you move in or you have your pin, full certainty that your dog is responded to. So you might rephrase the question, why? Or what is the wisdom behind a delayed response? Or behind the response that we do not necessarily see, we ask for something but we don't get it. We get
something else instead. Without a doubt. This is a great test and trial from a law when we make to fulfilling the etiquettes of avoiding the factors that prevent us from being accepted. We pray constantly continually. And yet we see no results from that. This is a great a great trial. A great test a great fitna from Allah subhanho wa Taala to test our EMA so in order to Assad to this in order to provide some food for thought if you like some wisdoms, it is imperative that we bring to mind we ponder over some chickens and wisdoms behind this delayed response. Firstly, and of the greatest wisdoms is the pure EMA that Allah subhana wa tada is an Melek the king and when he is the
king, that he has the right to do what he does, when he does and how he does as a lesson on law use. The womb use
Allah will not be questioned about what he does. But they meaning us will be questioned about what we do. A lot is to make
well lo Yamanaka by the coconut as Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah judges alleges size and there is none that can change or alter his decree.
This is a law this isn't many. No one has the right to question or to demand something as a right from Allah subhana wa God, what he gives he gives from his wisdom and what he withholds he withhold from his wisdom. This is the manifestation of a lot of names and attributes. Another point and another benefit to ponder over is the recognition of man's proper status. a lowly powerless creature who has no good who has no inherent power to do anything except by the power of Allah subhana wa tada he has no right over Allah. Allah created him and gave him everything he has.
Therefore, he has no right to demand something that I deserve this
approach you should realize that this is not his right whatever he is asking, if Allah gives it to him, it is of his wisdom and justice. And if he does not that to his of his wisdom and justice,
man is the act, the servant and Allah subhana wa tada is the law or the God that is worshipped.
Yet another benefit of a delayed response is that this is a type of test of fitness. And without it, we would not have any image and when you have an enemy when you have difficulties to face, that is when your courage and bravery is shown. Therefore when the fitna of not having your dog responded to is, is come comes, that is when you respond to that.
fit like a McMansion so that a lot tests you. Allah separates the good from the evil. If there were no tests, how could you do that? How would he say the judge between people and of the tests and of the ways that he chooses between people is the response to a delayed job. Like Allah says, whenever new conditions you will say the fitness, we test you buy good and evil, both as a fitness, good and evil, both is a fitness test, a means of discerning of differentiating the good from the evil. And one of the ways of doing select we said is one or two out is not responded to, which will be our response. Or it seems that arthritis not responded to, which will be our response to that situation.
Yet another benefit and wisdom to ponder over is that what we are asking, might bring about some evil as a lesson in the Koran was that inter crochet and World War Two was the impossible Shavasana you might hate something, but it is good for you. And you might like something, but it is evil for you. So you might think that if you get this job, or if you get this status or if you get this to are responded to was matters of this world, obviously, then there will be some benefit. But Allah knows that that in that there is some great harm and evil for you. Therefore, in his love and wisdom, he does not respond to that.
Unless it was either mentioned the case of the man who asked for more money, so that he could be pious woman woman Hala Hala, autonomy for the healing of the
Father, hey, there are those people who said they made a promise with Allah. If you only give me of money, then of assurity we are going to be pious and we're going to give of this money. So Allah says for them at our home in public he went Allah gave them what he wanted. When Allah gave them of his bounty, Bucky to be, they were miserly whatsoever from wherever you go, and they turned away, thinking that they did not pay them.
Then Allah says for aka Bomani, Shaka Zulu them, Allah subhanho wa Taala afflicted them with nisab with hypocrisy till the Day of Judgment.
The person prayed for money. And he said, By Allah, if you give me I will be of the pious, then a further one an akuna. Let me know. If you understand Arabic, this emphasis after emphasis, we will assure to be generous. And indeed, I'm going to be a pious person, just give me the money. So when Allah gave him when Allah gave him that,
then they became arrogant. It is easy to imagine what you would do in such a situation. But when that situation happens, that is when the real trial comes. So it is possible that what you're asking for, might be for your detriment, might be detrimental to you in the hereafter.
Once the province has received some money, I've forgotten he started giving it to some people. So once the habit said, You're a fool, or why don't you give to so and so? I think he is a Muslim woman. And he said this three times, why don't you give to him, but the processes did not give him then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, also and so the one who was asking him to give to the other person,
sometimes I love someone more than other people. Therefore, I do not give them of this money. Because I fear if I were to give it to them, they would misuse and abuse it. And because of it goes to the fire.
Because of my love for him the process of things I do not give him money, because I think he will not be able to deal with his fitness of money.
So it is possible that what you desire what you want, will only bring about evil and harm for you and not bring about good. Therefore churston Allah when Allah says hickmott on valuable, Allah hikma and wisdom is perfect, all encompassing. trust in Allah is wisdom. be contented what Allah has given you. And realize that what you asked for might not be for your benefit in this world, or in the hereafter.
It is like a child who asked for sweets when he is sick, who doesn't want the medicine that will show him his his limited perception. He only wants to temporary but he forgets the long term. You need to eat the medicine in order to become fully pure and good. But the child doesn't want it because it doesn't taste. He doesn't see the long term benefits. So so many of us when we pray for something, there might be long term benefits, we cannot even realize we don't even have the perceptions to see. So trust in Allah, like the Prophet for the love while you send them said that Allah is more merciful to us and your mothers are
when there was a battle going on. And the Sahaba saw a woman frantically searching for her child. And every parent knows the fear that will happen in the battle. Can you imagine losing your child not knowing if it's alive or dead? The woman is ignorance of the battle. She just wants to find her baby. When she finds the baby. She takes it and she gives her breasts to it to suckle when the Sahaba is obviously removed, and doesn't focus and said do you think that this woman would ever throw her son in the fire into a fire? They said as long as she had like she would never do it. So the profits were sort of said know that Allah is more merciful to his servants and the woman is to
Allah knows what is best for you if you really have the money.
taqwa. If you really have that, then realize whatever Allah decrees is for the best. This is yet another benefit and wisdom, that the choice of Allah is better than the choice of discernment. The choice of Allah is better than the choice of discernment.
So, if you want to go to one of the famous scholars of the past, he said when you draw is not answered when you don't get what you want, realize that Allah is in fact giving you something, because when he does not give, it is not because he is most of you are stingy, but because he has looked at the benefit of the service, and because of that, he has not given you for your own good. In other words, it is seen when a lead does not answer your
tank a lot in that as well because Allah has shown a greater benefit for you. He has chosen something even better for you than what you can imagine. Allah is not giving you this not because he is most of you are stingy. Not because he is worried to give you that he will have nothing left no. But because he realizes what is for your own benefit for your own good. As Allah says, it is possible you love something, but it is harmful for you. ponder over the story of Hadith and Musa when they were walking along.
And how they found a baby child, a young boy and killed them slaughtered him. Moses said What have you done? How could you kill the innocent child? How they said you do not know he was a prophet of Allah. You do not know what Allah has inspired me. Then later on, it comes out the story that this child, his parents were pious people,
good people. And had Allah allowed him to live he would have become a coffee and cause them much harm and grief. So killing him at this stage is a mercy for him and a mercy for his parents. Because right now the only ingredient for his life but if he had become a casa de will be grieving for his hereafter as well. And the pain of a pious practicing parents looking at their children who are not even Muslim Can you imagine that? So out of Allah's mercy,
Allah subhana wa tada removed him, the child so that the parents could live a better life.
ponder over this Allah knows what is the best for you. So trust in Allah, he not evaluating we belong to Allah and to Him we return Allah knows what is best for us. So the choice of Allah is better than the choice of the servant.
This brings us to another point as well is that man does not know the result of is to have this is yet another benefit and wisdom. You do not know the results of what will happen to you.
Like we said some good you think is good might bring about evil, and some evil you think it is evil, it might bring about good.
Another benefit is that these trials and these fitness, they increase your Eman and bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala if you did not have fitness you would not come closer to Allah. It is through trials and tribulations. It is through these means of testing that Allah subhana wa tada raises people over others. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the greatness of reward is proportional to the severity of the trial. In other words, the more difficult to fit into is, the more difficult We'll see. But it's, the more the reward will be. And then he said that if Allah loves a person, he tests him
listening, if a lot loves a person, he touched him. So whoever is pleased, will gain the pleasure of Allah. And whoever is angry will receive the anger of
the more Allah loves you, the more he will test you in order to raise your ranks up.
Therefore, the delay of the door, the delay of the response of the draft should be taken as an indication of this as well is that it is possible a lot of testing and through this testing, you will forgive my sins and raise my ranks in the hereafter and in this world as well.
And also, like we stated before, something evil sometimes brings about something good, something evil, something sometimes brings about something that is good. Let's forget Oblivion, another of the scholars said that what the slave hates what their worship or hates, is better for him than what he loves. This is because what he hates was caused him to increase in his job, whereas what he loves will distract him from beautiful statements here. When one of you is in a masiva what will happen will turn to Allah who will pray more will give the counselor therefore
even though we hate that thing that has occurred to us
whereas when some good happens to us, if a lot of money or a lot of prestige comes this distracts us from the worship of Allah, every one of us knows this. Therefore society we're gonna give a beautiful statement. He said that which you hate is better for you, because it brings you closer to Allah. But that which you love, is not for your good because it distracts you from the worship of Allah.
Beautiful state if we ponder over it and yet one more benefit and listening to delay the response of a to have yet another event.
is that when the draw is not responded to, it causes a person to stop in his tracks, to ponder over his life, to think about his relationship with the loss of Hannah with the island
to contemplate his own sins, and the little quiz that he has done.
Only when the drop does not come, just every single person stop and think why.
Unfortunately, most people, most Muslims don't think when they're in the prime of their time, and they have all of the luxuries they want, they don't stop and think about religion. But when we'll see what's happened, when fitness and trials happen, this is when everyone stops and thinks, why is this happening? So it is a time for contemplation, a time for self judgment. A person thinks about his life, and what he is doing with it. And this is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala, that He gives him this opportunity in this life, before it is too late. A person can examine himself, a person can see the good and the evil in his own life, and therefore improve before it is
too late. Has Allah responded to every drop, that a person will become complacent, arrogant,
whatever do you make, it comes immediately that a person will not have the Buddha or the servitude to Allah. But when the drought is delayed, the person thinks, why is it too late? What have I done.
And this is, like we said, a very beautiful benefit of drought. And any person that has been in a severe situation and circumstance, and has prayed to Allah constantly knows this perfectly well. It is possible like we said, that a person develops a relationship with a loved because of his situation, in which he enjoys this relationship more than he enjoys the drive itself.
In other words, when a person realizes his own sense, and he wants his drive to be responded to you will give up, you will increase his good deeds, his love for Allah will go up. And he will develop a new relationship, a new dialogue, a new conversation with Allah, and this conversation will be so pleasing and so sweet to him, that he will not want his dog to be responded to, because he realizes when his dog comes, he will have to give up that friendship, that he will constantly be distracted from that closeness to Allah subhana wa.
And this is the height of human imperfection when a person loves this idea to allow this servitude to Allah more than he loves the responses.
So this is yet another blessing and beauty of a delay in the response of the drop. Yet another point, and we mentioned this in the beginning, is that the drought might actually have been responded to how do you know, you might not get what you want. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you something better than that.
You ask for a job, Allah subhanaw taala will cause money to come to you from other ways you might not get that job.
You ask for family, Allah subhanaw taala give you other things besides that, that are better than you and a family might be. Whatever you ask for, it might have been responded to in ways that you do not see. Because we are narrow minded. We only see this one thing that we want. And yet we ignore all of the other blessings around us.
It is possible a load of bricks that's far more than money and treasures can buy. But we don't realize and appreciate those blessings.
There's one instance which is not directly to this point, but it shows you what I'm talking about is a person came from hustle and bustle. And he said I'm a poor person, pray to Allah to give me some money. They drive to Allah. I don't have much money. So I looked at him. And he said, Would you give me 100,000 gold coins? For your hands? Let me get your hands and I'll give you 100,000 gold coins? Is it? Of course not. I'm not gonna give up my hand. He said what do you do for your feet? He said no. How about your eyes? No, not even your eyes? Not even my eyes. How about your good health? No, not even my help. So it has an embassy said you are a walking millionaire and you're complaining to
a lot that you don't have money.
You have treasures beyond imagination. Yet you have the audacity to complain that you don't have money.
So you might not realize the true blessings of Allah. But there might be things that you do not see your shortsightedness does not see. And the greatest treasure is the treasure of when you have real human everything and anything besides that treasure pales in comparison. There is nothing that equivalent that equals the treasure of the ummah.
Yet another benefit and blessing of a delayed response is that you might ponder over the drug itself. Have I perfected this? Am I asking for what I should ask? Or am I asking only as a junior and forgetting the auction? Am I fulfilling the etiquettes of drop the preconditions the adult or am I doing something that blocks the road to being responded to
So it causes you to examine the various route which was responded to and improve the, the etiquette and the way that you asked that to have.
Yet another version of a delayed response is that this manifest allows names and attributes. A delayed response, shows you a love who he is and his names and attributes of a loved name, this animal clear the one that gets Alaya the one that withholds. Of Us names is a second, the one who judges and decrees and men can judge and decree over him ever loved me isn't ever just he gives with justice, and he withholds the justice of all alleged dangers and karimun men, the average interest the one who gives continuously,
he gives continuously without stock, and he never takes anything back. All of this shows you alleged names and attributes.
And it demonstrates and manifests a less push up nature.
Yet another benefit and blushing of a delayed response is that if perfects a person's a badger, a perfect a person's worship of Allah, it protected perfects his servitude to Allah subhana wa Tada. And one of the ways that it protects us servitude is the very fact of waiting for a response. It prolongs your hope and fear, and prolongs your hoping Allah and your fear of rejection. It shows your need to avoid continual poverty, you always raise your hand and you continue to pray, realizing that if I love this and give it to you, it will not come to you. So it shows your poverty and need to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It also shows your pleasure at a loss decree, you do not get angry. When
we say pleasure, it doesn't mean you have to be happy, but you cannot get angry. You cannot get angry at the decree of Allah.
Like the prophets of the law, it said when his son was taken away, his son, he brought him home he loved like anything. When Allah subhanaw taala was like Ibrahim passed away, the process of that did not jump with joy. Rejoice, no, he cried. But he was patient. And the tears came down in his face. And he said, Yeah, Ibrahim, we are very social at your lunch.
But we see nothing except little fish in the day.
It doesn't mean you will be happy at a large decrease. But you cannot get angry You must accept it. This is what I mean by pleasure. You will accept it like a movement and know that what Allah has in store for you is better than what you have, even if we don't see that appreciate it. So this also manifests your servitude to Allah. It also proves your humility to Allah. When your drought is delayed, then you become more humble, more humiliated, that will become even more, you approach a lot more frequently, to showing who you are that you either have to work at your job and responded to all the time, you would not have this feeling of apathy. Rather, you would think that your God,
whoever you asked you get. So all of these blessings and more
of these blessings as well. The final one we'll talk about is combating the plots of shape on
shape on uses this opportunity
to cause people to go astray. Aha look alleged not responding to you, Allah does not love you.
chiffon uses this opportunity when your drought is not responded to. So by turning to Allah, and turning to Allah against Satan at this time, once again, you renew your contract with Allah, you renew your Eman with the Lord. Because like we said before, when you don't have an enemy to fight, then you become weak. Only when there is an enemy will your courage and strength be shown. You must have an opponent. If there's no opponent, you cannot see the courage and the strength, social is a must, there must be an opponent that you have to show this image. So shavon uses and here you have to show your own strength, you have to prove your own demand. Are you strong enough to withhold it
with standing with the permission of Allah.
And this is of the most important and crucial times how many are the Muslims they pray, pray, pray, and just let the promises of themselves they say they say to themselves, I have made to Allah hasn't responded to me. So they give up the drug and they give up the worship. And this is exactly the reason why they will not be responded to like we said earlier the process that has said every draft will be responded to as long as the person doesn't give up. Because they say Allah has not responded any sauce making
sure all of these blessings all of these are blessings and activate response and they are much more than these and realize all Muslim, that even the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the most noble of Allah's creation, the greatest man ever to have lived and died. He is in the process of love Allah who said that not all of his dogs responded to
if that is the case, with the prophets of Allah while he was set up How about
the Prophet fulfillment said, I asked my Lord for three things. And he gave me two of them and didn't give me one didn't give me one
Even the profits are so low.
Because the profit is a human being is not a god, he cannot decide what he wants when he wants it. No, he is an observer as well. He must submit himself to the will of Allah. And he says that I asked my those three things he gave me too, and he didn't give me what I asked him, that my nation not be destroyed by a drought all over simultaneously. So he gave it to me, the most of them are will never perish in a famine or drought in its entirety. I asked him, that my nation not perish by drowning all of them. Remember, the Muslims were small, that might have been a few. So Allah gave that to me as well. And I asked him, that we do not fight amongst ourselves, but he did not give that to me.
And that is why To this day, we have Muslim nations and Muslims always fighting with one another. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not respond because of wisdom or wisdom, we don't realize it. There are greater benefits and wisdom in not responding. But the fact is, consoling yourself. Even Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an Abdullah,
not all of his class were accepted. Therefore, do you think that all of yours will be accepted, as well?
As Josie, one of the famous scholars, he has a very beautiful paragraph passage in one of his books, and I'm going to read it out because it's very beautiful. He was a great scholar, great worshiper, and the great ascetic as well that, he said, I was once in a situation of distress. So I originally made to ask to Allah to relieve me from my distress, and to bless me with relief and freedom. Yet, the response seemed to be postponed. So my soul started getting agitated and restless, my daughter was not responded to. So I said to my soul, is like having a conversation with himself. I said to my soul, what do you consider your situation?
Are you an adult? Are you a servant? Or are you the king?
Are you the service? Are you the king? Are you the one who is controlled? Or are you the one that controls? In other words, there's a lot of control? Do you control a lot?
Do you not know that this world is a place of trials and tribulations? And if you ask for something, and it is not responded to, and you are impatient, then where is the trial? This is the trial, that the fact that Allah does not respond to your job is only to understand this responsibility, then that which is difficult will appear easy for you, and the variable will become light. After it pointed over this is quite a downer. But if there's ozias continuing, then he said, I then told him I have a second response as well. And that is that you're asking Allah your wishes and desires, but neglecting to ask yourself what a law requires of you. Beautiful passage. You are asking a lot what
But you are forgetting what Allah wants you to do.
You have the audacity to stand up and say, Oh my God, give me this, this this. But you don't ask Have I done what I am required by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To do. And even as Josie says, This is the essence of ignorance
is appropriate that you do the opposite. Since you are the servant, and the intelligence servants tries to fulfill the rights of the master, knowing that it is not obligatory for the master to grant any desire, the servant must fulfill the rights of the master, whether the master gives an extra or not, that is not for him to ask. He must fulfill his duties towards his master. So to our way, it is our duty that we fulfill Allah's rights upon us. And we cannot demand something back from Allah. After I told that this it achieves yes more peace. Then he said, then I told that I have yet a third response. And that is that you have delayed the response of the draft by blocking his path with your
You have blocked the path yourself
with your own sins. If only you were to open the path, then the response will also be patient.
So look at your sins and situations they have acted as closing doors as barriers as impediments blocking the response of your time. Open this door clear away this trash and rubbish of your sins by Toba. But it's the fun
and then the cloud will also come to you. So my soul realized the truth and became content. I then said I have yet a fourth response. And that is that you are asking for something which you do not know the consequences of. In fact, it might even be harmful for you. Your example is that of a child stricken with fever and asked him for sweets.
The one in charge of you is more aware of your situation. And what is good for you, then you yourself. There's not a law saying well I sat in Takahashi and one will say that it is possible you dislike something and it is for your own good. And the passage goes on and on and on. But this is a beautiful passage I felt what a majority he summarized the essence of this thing is that do not ask why?
Because I learn how to respond to my draft. No, this is not proper. Writer look at the benefits and wisdoms behind it and thank Allah that He has chosen
Is that an option for you, that is better than what you yourself desire. But this does not mean that you give up the drug, because as long as you make the drug alone will continually give you if it doesn't give you that it will give you other than that. Don't give up the drug. Don't use it as an excuse to give up the drug. Rather you use this to assert yourself to comfort yourself, when there is an A is coming, you use it to comfort yourself well, there must be some wisdom behind it. And here are some of the benefits and
portions to think about over the delaying the response of the draft. They will conclude with one last topic inshallah. And if we have time, maybe one more doggedness relationship with others, many, many people ask this, we all know that everything has been written for us ally has written everything down and he knows everything that will happen. So they say why should I make drugs? If it's written, it'll happen? And if it's not written, even if it will not happen?
Lots of people have this concept an idea.
Well, let us take the logical consequence of this methodology ideology, asked him back. Why do you go to work? Because if your salary is written for you, you will get it even if you go or you don't go. Then ask him why do you go to the groceries and bias the food? If your food is written, it will fall down from the skies for you and you will eat it. Then ask the Why do you arrange the morsel of food to your mouth, if it is written for you will jump up into your mouth, you see the logical consequences of this type of ideology. Yes, it is written for you what will happen, but you do not know. Therefore you strive your best to obtain it using all the possible means. And do art is one of
the most primary possible means of obtaining your goal. Just like the farmer when he plants the seeds, he does not know where to go or not. But he does know if he doesn't want, it will not grow. If he doesn't want any harvest, you will not have a crop to harvest. But when you press the seat, then he makes drops to a Lola give it a good life, give it good rain, let it go. So to his daughter, it is a means a path that we must take in order to arrive at the destination. We don't know what is written for us. So we don't take that into account. Whether it is written or not, we don't know. But we have to make up for it to occur.
also realize that it is possible that a lesson kind of with data will write something for a person and then put a condition on it and Allah knows whether that condition will be fulfilled or not. So he will say for example, if so, and so makes he will not fall sick. But if he does not make he will fall sick. This too is possible as further
and the angels do not know what will happen. They only read the notes. But Allah subhana wa tada knows whether he will make flock or not, if he makes throughout, then the evil will be removed from him. And if he doesn't make them he will continue in the evil.
So the point is that we do not know what is in our culture. Therefore we do not base our actions upon it. We try our best with all means physical and spiritual. Just like we wake up in the morning and go to work because we want to get our money. Just like we go to the grocery market, we cook we eat just as we get married because one of our kids, it's not gonna happen just like that
same tool with our drop. We use it as a need and a tool. Whether it's required or not, we don't know. We don't have to ponder over it. But one of the ways that arriving at that goal is through the medium of job. That is why the purpose of alerts that instead that caution will be of no benefit against other no matter how cautious you are, for example, if it's written that you're going to be in an accident, doesn't matter how cautiously you drive it will happen to you, because Allah has written for it. So cautious, cautious or caution will be of no benefit against credit, but is a benefit to all things whether they have whether they have accrued or not. So how can we help for
that like we said a look and put a condition if he wishes, if the person makes two out he will be safe from the accident. And if he doesn't leave, he will be in the accident and the ages when they get that they did not know but Allah subhanaw taala knows and based on what the person does that will happen to him. So we made that we say Oh Allah save us from an evil death saved my family from my suffer trials and tribulations that I'm in the matter of opportunity. Okay greatest a good life in this world in the hereafter as an engineer, so if an applicant what will happen or not we do not know but we have to make the draft.
So it is not proper to ask this question is that if it is written for me, why should I make draft because the same question can then be given back to you if it is written for you why you go to work. If your food is written for you, why do you cook it? If your food is being free? Why do you even raise it to your mouth, let it be cooled by itself and it will jump back up at you that will not happen. Like
you will have to strive in order to get money because the sky is don't rain gold and silver. You're not going to get gold and silver through rain. He will have to strive work hard in order to get money same to withdraw it is a tool. It is a means a goals a path that we use in order to arrive at the destination
And we know that draft changes. We explained this how the process Adam said nothing changes because it except draft, we explained how this is the case that it is possible that Allah has written the other with a condition that if we need to add this will happen if we don't make draft, it will not happen. Like in when I need to process a lot of sentences that
a paraphrase that is not in front of me, I'll paraphrase it, but do I come out of the moment and fight other literally fight further, I wanted to truly victorious over the other, it is possible something is coming down and whether this will happen to you. But when you make plans to save yourself from this, it is possible that the drought will fight the permanent overcoming. And Allah knows beforehand what will happen. But to us, we do not ponder over the other, we just try our best. And we said that drought is one of the ways of trying to achieve that goal. Before we conclude there's a few important topics to talk about. of them is da and its inherent proof that Allah
subhanaw taala is above us. We know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is above us, in contrast to some people who say that Allah everywhere obviously loads not everywhere, physically, it's everywhere. In his knowledge, he is obviously not around us, we're not walking through a lot. The point is drought is one of the ways to prove this. Why? Because we make law What do we do? We raise our hands up to a lot to handle.
We raise your hand up to Allah, surely. And if this is even the non Western, even the customer, when he makes die, what does he do? He looks up because he realizes that his kids that Allah subhanho wa Taala is above the Muslim, the carpet, the child, the aged Christian, all of them, it is in their fitrah that when they make it to us, it goes up to us and this is of the ways you can use to prove that Allah subhana wa Taala like a lesson the foreigner is still an archer he is above us above the Throne. Another important point or a question was asked about wiping one's face after facing the drop. We said that there is a few ideas related about this. Some scholars make it authentic, some
scholars make it weak and whatever one follows there's evidence for it because there is evidence for that, to wipe the face over the house after finishing.
And also let us not forget that the most important thing that we have to ask about is our own religion, is steadfastness. And our faith is to increase our guidance. Let us be aware of being of those people who are only present to you. And they forget about the answer. In fact, if you look at the drivers of the progress of la vida who was selling, you find that the majority, the vast majority of his drives, were about the hereafter were about forgiveness we're about we're about rushman we're about entering gentlemen, and sitting with suffering from the fire of health, we're about being guided. And if you look at most of us, the vast majority of ours are about are about
this dunya give me money, give me family can be children. And this is a sign of the weakness of the month. Because it shows you that we're preferring the temporary pleasures of this world over the pleasures of the hereafter. And we also said this is a type of imitation of shavon because she thought at the low end, and that is for this world for life. I'm going to Nicola Yomi battle give me life until the day of judgment. So, let us not be like shavon Let us remember that we have more important things to ask about, than the matters of this world and that is the matters of the hereafter. So, brothers and sisters, let us think after today's few lectures, let us ponder over
these aspects that we have studied these verses of the Quran. And these are Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. Let us see the beauty of this graph, how strong and powerful it is.
And let us ask ourselves, the status of drying our daily life. How often do we turn to Allah? How sincerely do we do so? What are the matters that we asked?
And what are the etiquette that we do when we are performing to how do we ask but not care about our own actions and deeds? Do we want Allah to give us and we do not think about our own worship of Allah.
What is the status of drop in our daily life?
Oh you who does not turn to Allah thinking that you are to Empire or filthy for Allah to respond to you? Or you're more suited that is nice. And so if a look and respond to a belief, if Allah can respond to the drought of the police, can you not respond to you as well?
Oh, you who are in distress. Don't despair, a finding a situation a way out. Woman if the marriage and the woman whoever has the taqwa of Allah Allah will find a way out for a turn to draw us. This is your way out of this assess that you're in and realize that this situation that you are in is because of your own deeds. So correct your own situation and correct your own to increase the chances of it being responded to by removing the citizen
Joined by increasing your own good deeds so that your communication between yourself and alef become stronger and more direct
or you who is making to our right now waiting for our response Don't let shavonne come to you now and tell you to give up early you will be responded to as long as you meet the conditions and if you are doing properly then you're probably responded to so don't look at the link length and delay of the response. rather look at yourself in your own situation. And why is it that the delay is occurring?
Well you will have had to answer and has seen the effects of calling out to Allah subhana wa tada Do not be like the Cochran who, when he prays to Allah, and Allah responses prayer, he neglects Allah and forget all about Allah subhana wa tada rather This is a cause for you to increase your own abundance to come closer to Allah because Allah has responded to your job and to increase your own demand and
the ability to out is your sharpest sword that you can use against every single enemy he did was seen in front of you and it is your strongest weapon. It is your only means of communication between you and your Creator.
With this will conclude in sha Allah to Chanukah London permission to allow

As you know, I've been repeating lot of things myself, but I repeat one more time. second Saturday of every month, we have programs summer in Houston, all the updates everything you get from the website called www.demostrate.org. Again, www.dimasi.org, you will find all the updates and things about the things that Texas interval

I didn't know about it, but if it's going on, please, what are ways of improving because all of us are human beings, we all have mistakes. If there's some way of improving any the method or the manner of delivering, then all of us can improve in Sharla. And any of the process and it said to me, the believer is like the mirror of his belief is the mirror of the other believer where you can see his mistakes and falses so please give some constructive criticisms for improvements. There are many
questions here inshallah we'll try to respond to as many as possible is a very good question. The Hadith that says that when one makes
the auditor Okay, So currently, we're always a company where the Prophet system praised him because of his Eman because it is being kind to his parents. But if I advise my parents about some things that they do want in their religion, does this make me unfair or impolite to them? And this might not be accepted? No, this is not the case. If your parents do something that is incorrect, that is not right from Islam, then it is obligatory for you to correct them, but your manner of correcting must be polite and with adequate etiquette. In fact, it is obligatory if you do not correct them. If you remain quiet, then this is a sin upon you.
What we're talking about is fulfilling the rights of the parents and of those rights is to correct them when they make a mistake.
As Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What ninja has to Shikari Malik collected here in Mozilla superhuman. If your parents they're not listening, and they try to force you to worship other than Allah to do * with
To me, that don't obey them. But Allah says will continue in this world, the good companions to them, even if they're wishek, pagan idol worshipers and they command you to do *. Don't listen to them. This is not fulfilling their right because this will be a luxury. But even then, be polite and kind to them. Be good to them. Look at the story of Abraham and his father beautiful story, where his father was the idol worshiper. Abraham tries, gently, sweetly, very nicely. All my father My dear father, yeah. Oh, my dear father, why are you worshiping Chico? don't worship Chico? Oh, my dear father, why do you worship that which you call with your own hands? Oh, my dear father, I am
here for you that allow my Punisher because of this beautiful where he doesn't curse him, or you must Shut up. And he keeps on calling up my dear father, my dear father, and even then he gives them down in a polite manner, in a good way. So too, we must be prepared to do something wrong. We should give them advice. Yes. But the way and the manner that we do it must be with wisdom and politeness, we should never ever there is no excuse for being rude to our parents in any situation or circumstance. It does not matter what they do. If they even tell you to do *, Allah says Be good to them. Don't say to them. So how about if they don't treat you? Right? How about if they do
something that you think they shouldn't do?
Never Is there a justification for being rude and mean to one's parents.
But this doesn't mean like we said that we ignore any false that they have rather this obligation to correct it. But it is the way and the manner that we correct them. That is what is that it was what must be seen? Should we face the pain of breaking the law? Obviously, the person who asked this question was not here in the beginning session, we said it is part of the etiquette to face similar when making drop
should we make to our candidate draw in a room where there's a photograph on the wall?
Really, the issue of photography is cut out. But really, it's better to avoid it because the professor said that the angels don't enter a house in which there is a solar. So even if you have photos or nothing you would love to have photographs, even if you do you don't have to hide them on the wall. You don't have to display them in front of everyone, it is possible that the angels will not come into your house. And why would you want to live in such a house? Therefore, you don't display photographs on the wall? Don't display them out. It is possible. Like when I displayed the picture of a horse and the process of him came, he didn't even enter the house. He said Why should
there is a picture in the house angels cannot come into such a house, remove it from that, remove it from the wall. So he would not even enter the house until the picture was removed. Therefore, I advise you not to have photographs in your house. If you're in someone else's house. And there are photographs, obviously that doesn't mean you don't do. It makes you can make it all situations and circumstances. The brother asks about are we allowed to say the following during the 100. And he has a long drive alone. And it is an authentic guy? Yes. Along the neck and hundreds of famous and I want to know when they can handle the Medical Center. What do you do this or what all of this long
drop it is of the sooner the process and I would say it's in the hundreds?
Let's try to take topics related to the questionnaire, a lot of 15 massage we don't want to get into them.
If there are questions related to drop, we can raise hands because we don't want to wait for the questions to come related to them.
So that app is dropping a button.
And it is narrated that they would say at the end of the meeting. Yeah.
Any more questions we need to draw?
Yes, this question was asked last time I said it's better not to make it a habit. But it does make it a habit because the processing didn't make it a habit also you know the Africa
there are many records from the sooner the processor would never leave the level
of them is a level of perceptual loss after loss after the look Hello military.
me shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah 10 times you will say this, okay? And it's upon Allah hamdulillah Allah He will say this 3131 and 3333 34 times he will say this, or sometimes it's 3045 he would say Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello. All of these doors are from the center the processing would never ever not to do them. Therefore, we should make this a habit. I sunkoshi the promises from said whoever is trying to add to the cookie after every fun prayer, then nothing prevents them from entering gender except his death. So why should we leave these things these are some things that we have to do we should do them. Nothing will prevent a person from
entering in accepted that if you start to see after every seller, also there should handle that.
They will love us. But when we say this 100 times, then the prophet will seldom said that a person will be forgiven, even if his sins are like the form of the ocean, like the ocean, if you like, his sins will be forgiven after every follow. So we find that those people that make drop after every solid, they knew this sooner and instead do this, they should not leave this one, do this fitness first. Like, for example, the process of them said, Oh my god, I love you for the sake of Allah. Therefore, never forget to say at the end of the Salah was the dog who remembers
a lot of other victory.
So the profitsystem is advising one and he tells him I love you, for the sake of Allah. And then he says never leave this to our different Why do we leave it? Why do we not say these are the things we should make our regular soon after, after and once in a while to what to make as well, very often frequently no problem. But let us not forget the continuous sooner with ease soon as it the processes used to say.
Any more questions about
how often can we say at any time there is an issue which is of concern to you? Anytime there is an issue of this world that is of concern to you? Should I do this or not? Should I even want to buy a house? Should I buy this house or not? Don't buy a car should or should I buy this car? No problem. Anything that is of concern of major concern? You're going to be investing significant time significant money, significant efforts for something makes awkward make a staccato twist for any issue. Many people think it's the current only made for marriage. This is a mistake. Of course do it for marriage. But there are millions of things you can make a staccato for any significant piece of
not something trivial. You don't press the tie which color should I wear today? Nothing should not be true there should be a significance, you spending considerable effort time or money in something so unique is to huddle. And the purpose of the staccato is that Allah subhana wa tada will choose what is best for you it is guaranteed This is the beauty of it. So how can people give up a staccato Allah subhanaw taala will guarantee whatever will happen will be for your good. If you press too hard, even though you might not see the short term benefits, but for the long term, it will be for your good. So this can be done at all for anything of major significance. Yes.
Yes, a good question of basically how do you know what to do after praying is too hard on many people think that when you increase the product, some divine signal will come to you, you will see a divine green light or a divine red light to go or stop. This is not the case. This is not the case at all. believer I actually read in books that some people have said this and I read this if you're supposed to do that thing you will see something green in the dream and if he's not supposed to you see something right? So it's like the stop signs are here. No, this is not the case. This is not the case at all. The purpose of the staccato realize is so that our worship Allah with Allah will
guaranteed that what is best will occur, you do what you want you do whatever you are inclined towards, suppose you should accept this job or not. you ponder over it and you do whatever you want. The staccato will not necessarily push you in one direction. But if you took the wrong choice of action, the door closed in front of you suppose it was for your best that you did not get the job. When you go in and say to your employer, I want to take the job he'll say I'm sorry, it's already full for example, so that is the quarter will not necessarily push you in one direction or the other. But Allah will open the door for you for that which is better for you. So when you take that
path, it will become easier for you to take that you will not necessarily see some divine sign of which direction to go. This is a common misconception about
anything else. So we conclude for the day inshallah
that you have some conical lahoma
it's not when it's a drought. Let's take the dry sell afterwards, you can do the lottery and sell
the whole long topic on
the topic of Waseda there was a we did not get into it. It is a whole chapter in the book. We did not get into it at all, because it's a very long topic. But with Siena there are certain types which are hot on there are certain types which are built up to a certain temperature shoot to a certain temperature sooner is strongly encouraged. Okay, those that are strongly encouraged of them is to make will see that there was a lot of names and attributes yellow food infinity era in harmony, era jam or zucchini. This is Waseda with a lot of names and attributes of them is Waseda with your own good deeds, your own good deeds. You say Oh Allah, I did such and such a thing you do. You mentioned
something that you have done which is a significant
To you, for example, I gave so much money when one occasion when I knew, and you knew that I needed that money, but I gave it for your sake. If you knew that I did this for your sake, then grant me this. This is Waseda that is allowed. Okay, these are machines that are allowed of what type of permissible Waseda is to go to a living person in front of you and say, Oh, so and so make God for me, as long as you regard yourself as well, it is allowed to go to some person and say make draw for me even though it is better not to but it is allowed that is acceptable was sealer of the types of Waseda is you mentioned the effects of the drug. You say Oh, Allah gives me good help. So that I can
for example, you know, go for jihad or do this or that you do you mentioned something as a result of that good. Okay, give me strong memories so that I can memorize the Quran. Okay, you mentioned the effects of that good this is a receipt of all of these was healers are very strongly encouraged and permissible, the types of resellers which are shipped, or to call out to other than Allah, you call it to Rama, Krishna over the you know, help of our officials is a shipment of the types of wahida, which is an innovation bid up is the example that you gave, to us the name of a pious saint or a prophet, or an angel, Oh Allah, because of your love of God, Grant me this, Oh Allah due to the
status of the Prophet Mohammed, give me this, this is an innovation and it is a stepping stone to shape it is not *ting in of itself, it is a stepping stone to shape. Therefore, it should be avoided as completely because the process of the law firms did not practice it. And then of the cyber practice as well
to ask, by the way sealer or the job for the status of saints, and of the profits of the mega acre. This is an innovation, which leads to shape and polytheism. Therefore it should be avoided. Even though many of you know this is very common in our culture and custom. And some people even try to bring evidence
for it. But if you read and research and each other This book has some concepts here, more research on this as well in front of you and there's another book as well called the western. It's titled as soon as in Islam. It is a whole book just about Waseda, available in English written by ships that embody a whole entire book where you can look at all the evidences for each type of weather that is allowed as primitive as a ship that is built up. But basically the common type of machinery that all I ask you about the status of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him by the job interview by this by the love of Mohammed system, all of these these are not narrated by the Quran and Sunnah, therefore,
we should avoid them, so we should stick to the Waseda that is found in the Quran and Sunnah. All of a sudden, we're getting all of these questions are we supposed to finish?
This question is already responded to.
This is 50 question.
Could you please recommend the Good Book concerning taharah
