Series: Yasir Qadhi - Kitab At-Tawheed
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves deep into chapters 34,35,36 and 37 of the book – Kitaab At Tawheed.
Chapter 34 deals with how feeling secure against the Plan of Allah contradicts Tawhid. Here we come across numerous facets related to this topic such as – the severity of punishment promised for the one who thinks himself safe from the Plan of Allah and the severe punishment promised for the one who despairs of the Mercy of Allah.
Chapter 35 deal with how a part of Iman (Belief) in Allah is the forbearance with what Allah has decreed. We realise the intensity of punishment promised to those who slap the cheeks in anguish and tear the clothes and call to the ways of the Days of Ignorance, the sign that Allah wants good or bad for His slave, the sign of love of Allah for His worshiper.
Chapter 36 deals with forbiddance of show off. We gather info on the explanation of the verse in Sural Al-Kahf (18: 110) and the fear the Prophet ﷺ had of Riya’, for his Companions and how he explained Riya’ by expressing the state of a person performing prayer for Allah, but he improves his rendering of the Salat when he knows that others are looking at him.
Chapter 37 deals with how it is of Shirk to perform a (righteous) deed for worldly reasons. The topics discussed in this chapter are – man’s desire for the worldly gains on the pretext of the acting for the Hereafter, the praise upon the Mujahid and much more.
Bismillah al Salam ala
rasulillah we are starting with chapter number 34. To feel secure against the plan of Allah contradicts so heed.
Allah the Most Exalted, said, Did they then feel secure against the plan of Allah? None feel secure from the plan of all except the people who are lost. This one ended up in 100 in the middle who want to say no who want to spell fiddled when it would have been allowed him and surely and fusina woman sejati Anna Lena mania de la, la la la la la la woman you deal with Allah Hadi Allah wa Shadwell,
la vida, hula Shadi Kala worship Mohammed abu allah sudo, I'm about
the author we keep our thing is very precise in his choice of chapter titles and also in his orientation or in his methodology that he uses in his book. So the last three chapters we discussed the love of Allah and the fear of Allah and the putting of trust in Allah subhana wa Tada, okay, now in this chapter, the author will warn us against extremes. The extreme that that people go through in their fear of Allah is that they might presume that Allah subhanho wa Taala will never forgive them. And the extreme that they might go in the trust of Allah is that they presume that Allah subhanaw taala will forgive them no matter what they do. Okay, so you see, after these talks about
the fear of Allah, right and putting trust in Allah, this chapter now, deals is going to extremes, extremes that need to conquer and lead to share. So in the first verse, the author says, I mean, you look at a larger, they feel secure against the finding of a larger they feel secure against the passing of Allah, then no one feels secure against this type of prodding, except the people that are lost, okay? So any person that feels secure from the punishment of Allah, then Allah will never punish me, I'm too good to be punished, okay? or How can I elaborate punish me that Allah is not here? He's asking a type of rhetorical question, do they feel secure from this from the from the
punishment of a law or from the planning of the law, and no one can feel secure against this type of punishment against the type of planning except the losers the positive one, so that one extreme that they go to is that they they become like the Christians in a ways that they think that Allah will forgive them, no matter what happens, Allah will not punish them. Okay? So unless as the true believer he does put his trust in him, right, but he doesn't take that twist to the extreme through which he feels that Allah subhanaw taala will never punish him, that he has now reached a certain level or he is so pious, or his visa so great that Allah will not have any planning or plotting
against him. Okay, so in this list of what sparkler says, but basically, it's talking about the people of Mecca, and he says that you they feel secure that the punishment of a low must come to them. In other words, how can you feel secure against the type of flooding and planning no one can feel secure against this type of planning and planning except the people that are lost now.
Here's the almighty set who dispose of the mercy of this Lord except those who are straight, okay, this is the other extreme now, that the person in his sphere of law, right he was it was this will lead him to a boundary outside the boundary of Islam, where he feels that he is so sinful, that he will never be forgiven, okay. So, do you understand there are two extremes here, this is very important, there are two extremes here, the first extreme was in your home or in your trust in Allah, you presume that you are free of punishment, that a lot cannot possibly forgive you, you are too holy, excuse me, Allah cannot possibly punish you, you are too holy to be punished, you are too
good to be punished. So this is one type of Corpus. Another type of scope is the exact opposite is in you when your fear of a God leads you to think that you are so sinful Allah cannot forgive you. Okay. So, you feel that you are so simple, you have committed so many things, Allah can I forgive you? And this is the type of copper for two reasons. Firstly, because you are
going against Allah power that Allah subhanaw taala is capable of all things. So it is as if you are in tuning it is as if you're accusing that I was not all powerful. Okay? Secondly, you are choosing not being merciful. You are choosing a love not being merciful, okay? Because you are saying that Allah cannot forgive me on two simple things forgiven you. You've disappeared of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah says in this woman, Jaco will never be in the balloon, who is there that despair is from the mercy of his word except the misguided the balloon? In other words, no one can despair from the mercy of a lot except one who has gotten misguided gone history. So to give up hope
of a mercy, that you think that you are so sinful, I will never forgive you. Okay. This is a type of disbelief in Allah. And we said, Why isn't several disbelief we can mention the two reasons we said?
I said the two reasons that we said, why is this the type of disbelief
Firstly, accusing you of not being all powerful, you're saying Allah cannot forgive you? Right? So this is as if you're thinking what can I do something let's look into anything he wants. Secondly,
Secondly, accusing the Alaska doesn't have an infinite amount of mercy that allows not merciful to you. Okay? So for these two reasons to despair of a loved mercy that hypercolor because you are it is as you're accusing a lot of not being all powerful and of not being merciful, what a lot is all powerful and he is All Merciful. So if a person disappears at the mercy of Allah and unfortunately this tool is very common amongst Muslims, both of these two extremes or comments, many Muslims, you'll find them doing things left and right. And that's the old model must be alone My punishment, you know, I mean, I have reached whatever I have done this at the level of attachment, and he feels
secure, that I'm too old to be punished by Allah. This is one extreme and this is COVID. The other extreme and this also is very common, you meet a Muslim and he's doing a lot of things and you'll say to sinful now, I can't I can't do any good. Allah won't accept it at me. And there's so many brothers, you'll meet them like this. I've done so many sins a lot. Can I forgive me? No. Okay, it's just pointless for me to do anything. So in this list, a lot of saying who is here that can disturb a Lazarus he accepted he is misguided or gone astray. Okay. So it is not allowed to go to extremes the few Eveleigh should not let you go to the extreme that you think that alone will never forgive
you. On the contrary, the fear of a lot is very important and it is part of life okay, but we don't go to extremes in it. Likewise, the putting our trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. I'm hoping the best of luck, right? And we don't we don't take it to extremes. But still it is a part of it is a part of our faith.
There is even a boss of your loved one who alleged messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked concerning major since then he struggled a lot with a with some upset, associating others with a lot to lose hope of relief from Allah and thinking oneself secure from the plan of Allah. Okay, so in this idea, once again, both of these extremes are combined. Look at this, as this is a very beautiful Hadith. The Prophet Muhammad was asked about the major sin and we know that things are divided into minor and major says we talked about this, right? That center dividing to minor and major and the major sins, obviously, they're not at the same level, some of them are bigger or
greater or more sinful than others, okay. So he was asking about the major, major sins, what are they? So he said, a ship will be the first to commit ship with a law. And we know that this is the one thing that can never be forgiven about a lesson it was added. And then he said to give up hope of the mercy of Allah and to feel secure of the point, the plan, the planning, or the plotting of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are two extremes here. When you give up hope of the mercy of a lot you you despair, because mercy Allah can never forgive me, Allah can never, you know, give me any blessings as to sinful. So this is a major sin for a person to believe this, because he was asked
about the most major sins and he said three things first is shift. And this is unforgivable. Secondly, to believe that Allah will not forgive you to despair of Allah's mercy to the spirit of a loss of hope. And thirdly, the other extreme to feel secure from a lack of punishment to feel secure from a lot of planning and planning that you think that I'm too holy to be you know, punished when any some other habit is to say, if I knew that a lot of stuff that only one says that for me that I would hope for just because on my whole life, I'm the only one accepted one second one frustration than I would hope that because now I feel I feel happier. And the point was that he was so unsure
that get a lot even accept one says that from him in his whole life and that he didn't know this is the way of the price places this is the way to set up. If you don't go to extremes and you just have a lot or you're fearful you have both of them together in the proper minutes. Okay, so to go too extreme in either of these two matches leads you to a type of purpose when you despair of Allah's mercy when you just have a lot of help when you despair have a lot of aid. A person might be in a situation that you know, a problem a Christian, he was he asked why don't you make glaucoma? He was alone will not respond to my drug. That's why Allah will not help me because I'm too simple. This
attitude in and of itself is a type of,
okay, who are you to say a lot more to help you? Are you intuitive alanda is not capable of helping you, I would say a lot is not merciful enough to help you do not realize who Allah subhana wa tada is when you say this, like where's the other extreme, a person is sitting all the time, okay? And you go to advise them to see Rama and give us a sense. And he comes and says no, Allah will not punish me. You know, I've done this and that I've done that deed alone will not punish me. This act in and of itself is a type of school for Who are you to say I was not going to punish you. This is not your right to say. So we have to combine both things. We have to do our good deeds. Okay. We
have to fear a lot of punishing the rest of us alumni punish us for anything that we have done. And at the same time, we have to put on hope and I trust it a lot and expect the best from him. Okay, and we cannot go to exchange any of these things. Now.
Of those darker points from heaven Massoud radio low honor that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the greatest of the major sins is shirk, associating others with a loved one.
Thinking oneself secure from the plan of Allah to despair, the mercy of Allah and Liz hope of Alyssa leaf.
There is a major mistake in the text here. Everyone please correct the text. This is not a highlight of the progress of the long term this is a statement of his emissary delete that the province has said this is a statement of truth I don't know where the translator got this from big mistake in the text please delete this this is not a hadith the Hadith preceded this one the one thing that will go the one that we said about it now but this was the one that the processing them said okay that the process having said that however this narration is a narration from the video Mr route and it has the same meaning but it is not a heavy so we have to be careful about that. So you're gonna lose
that that's the biggest of all sins goes up Maruti is a famous component of the processor. So he thinks the biggest of all sins, I could literally survive the biggest of all sins, what are they?
The ship with Allah subhanho wa Taala okay to cruise ship with Allah subhana wa Tada. Secondly, to feel secure of the plot the plot the plotting of a lot of planning of Allah basically to feel secure, avoid punishment, thirdly, to despair of Allah's mercy, to feel that Allah will never forgive you. Okay? And fourthly, to give up hope of Allah help, to give up hope of a month help, these are the biggest of the major sins, okay? These are the biggest of the major sins When you feel obviously should should get in a category of its own. That's a special category. The rest of these things are tested. Okay, to feel secure of Allah's mercy we already discussed this to feel secure
was America that Allah is never gonna punish me, excuse me to just be careful was the planning that was ever going to punish me. Okay, this is the type of golfer and that's it it's terrible as mercy alone will never forgive me. This is the type of golfer and he adds a third point to give a quote of a love help or a love aid. So if you're in a situation where you know a trouble has afflicted you, okay, and you ask why don't you make to ask your spouse alone never helped me a lot respond to my job. Okay, this tour is a type of cover because it is as if you are restricting a loved mercy. It is accusing a lot of not having the power to help you where he lives as a Muslim. He makes the drive to
Allah and he expects the best from a rock and then he is content with what alleges Okay, this is the true belief of the Muslims so to go to extremes in any of these things, is a type of Kufa move on to the next chapter. Chapter 35 part of the mind and alert is the forbearance with what Allah has decreed. Okay, now we move on to yet another act of the heart notes look at the author has always felt for the last few chapters, he's talking about the acts of the heart now he's talking about what did you start off with?
No way before this
fear then trust in a lot now moved on to the next this chapter that we did the chapter 34 right 34 it has two aspects to it actually, realize that the chapter heading that is in your translation is not from the author. This is added by the translator. There are two aspects to this chapter basically to go to extremes in your fear as you go to extremes in your hope and trust Okay, to go to extremes in your fear what does that mean? What would you What would you do if you went to extremes in your car? What would you what would happen
alone love never gonna forgive me. In your extreme fear this fear will lead you to prefer so make sure your fear is a sonic it does it is within the boundaries of a same trust level that leads you to much hope.
A lower level punishment. Okay, so this chapter dealt with both of these two extremes. So after mentioning fear and hope, okay, after mentioning fear and trust. Now he moves on to this next chapter. And he talks about the two extremes don't move on to another act of the heart and that is patience. Now patience means obviously everyone knows a patience means is to
bear and accept whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed for you not to curse, it's not to get angry at it rather to be patient that is to accept and be satisfied and contented with what Allah subhana wa tada has decreed for you. So the opposite of patience, right? In other words, what's the opposite word patience in English?
Well, impatient, what is meant here, what is meant is that to get angry at the decree of a law, or to or to curse, the decree of a law, or worse than that, even some Muslims that even curse Allah subhanaw taala, when something happens to them that is that, okay? This is all the types of Kufa It is not possible for the believer to get angry at the decree of a law whatever happens to him, he will accept it, because this is a love decree upon him. now realize that patience is a three categories, okay? Patience is of three categories.
The first category is patience when it comes to the worship of Allah. Okay, patience when it comes to the worship of Allah. So a person will be patient in offering his five prayers, for example. So you need patience, you need to continue. Every time every time the prayer comes, you have to go and pray every time you know you have to do religious you have to go do it. So this is patience for the worship of Allah. And this is the most blessing or most, the best type of patient because it requires stability. It requires continuity. It requires that you're always doing the actual act of prayer or the cigar or the fasting. So this is the best type of patient
Underneath it is patience
to refrain from the things that Allah has told you not to do, okay? So to avoid committing Zina, but to avoid you know, alcoholic drinks and to avoid, you need patience for this, you need patience, especially in times of temptation, you need to have patience. So this is a part of what religion, okay? To avoid patients to avoid two things.
And the third type of patients is patient and the decree of Allah and this is the lowest of them. And this is the topic of this chapter. Okay, patient at the decree will have something happened to you, okay, a person, you know, his relative might have passed away, or a person, his business went to that, okay. This is the type of patience which is the third category, that he has to be patient as a decree of Allah. And this is the lowest of the three. Why is that? Because it is beyond his control. The first two are in his control, he must force himself to the patient. What is the third one? It's not in his control what happened to him, right? It's in the lesson how to reduce control.
Okay, now, when we say that this is the lowest hazard to people, we're not trying to say that it's not rewarded, it could be possible that it might be easier for a person to play five players than to lose a D relative as is, okay. So at times, at times, the lowest form that patients might be more rewarded than the highest ones, what we're saying in general, in general, the the most noble form of patience is to, is to work,
not praying, persevere and your worship of Allah be continuous in your words will appear as an example. Okay? Not just embrace the best application is to be patient in the worship of Allah. Okay, and after this follows what follows.
Step two is to be patient and staying away from since and the lowest category is to be patient and the decree of Allah and that we have to realize when we say Louis categorically could be like I said, it could be that a patient that occurs in the third category is more rewarded than one of them the first category, okay, so we think in general, the rule of thumb is this but it could be for particular situations, it's not necessarily true for every single situation. Now,
Allah the Almighty said, And whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart and Allah is the owner of everything from Osama Rahim Allah said,
He is the man who when struck by pushing knows that it is from Allah excepted and service to him, okay, now in this room, Allah, Allah says, Whoever believes that a lot, a lot will guide him and a lot is aware of all things. Okay? Whoever believed in Allah human being that
Allah will guide his heart, okay? So the more good you do, then, likewise, are less likely to favor more dressings upon you, the more you show to a lot, the more effort you do to or less the more or less that kind of a rescue and accept those efforts. now.
I'll tell you, one of the students have, who knows.
I don't think we've covered how common this one outcome is one of the famous students of ebony master who's one of the most famous students of women in this room. Okay. Even in this room, he had a different school familia Buckingham Palace was in Makkah, we said that some of the Sahaba is founded, if you like universities or schools, not a physical structure, but you know what I mean, in the you know, they had a lot of students I studied with him, okay. Yeah, that was two of the most famous of the prophets companion and both of them they left behind him, if you like schools, generations, that was studied with him. Okay, so now that's was in macka. This is important to know
you understand the framework was going on now vessels and macka Okay, if you miss Ruth was in Iraq Kufa. Okay. So we have many scholars that came from Mecca. Many scholars that came from Iraq Kufa, so how come it was of the students of individuals or where was he? He wasn't No,
he was in Iraq. Allah was in Iraq, okay. So outcome was essentially a venomous route, he interpreted this verse, what did he How did he interpreted he said, this is in reference to a man and a selection and most lever a calamity before Okay, what does he do? He knows that it is from Allah subhana wa tada and therefore, he is content and patient and submit themselves to Allah. Okay, so this is the man who is this man that whoever believes in Allah will guide his heart outcome and gives an interpretation to succeed. He says this is a man a calamity before him and we'll see that anything relative of his as he loses somebody's car crash, whatever you want to say. He realizes
this is from Allah subhana wa tada it's a test from Allah. So he accepts this test and he submits his heart to Allah subhana wa Tada. Now,
Muslim in his said, he reported from Abu huraira that the loved one who had alesund messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to matters among people, not to disbelieve, attacking or defaming one's lineage and be willing the deceased okay. So the pattern of things two things if you do them, it is as if you are committing a type of copper a type of disbelief, okay. Firstly, to accuse your lineage, what does it mean to accuse your lineage?
Exactly, it could be it could mean obviously, it also refers to choosing your own lineage and this is very few people do that. But some of them they might say, you know, they might curse their own parents or forefathers or even claim that that's not my father. That's not my grandfather, either.
metolius and this is COVID. This is COVID. By the way, the purpose of this is to break up your lineage from your father, your forefathers, okay? This is a type of COVID. But what it also meant is that you put another person's hand and then he curses your parents, okay? And the second thing is to be will the dead, willing for the dead raising your voice and you know, wailing for the dead when they die? Okay, the point is, the second thing here is a sign of impatience. And the fact that a person does this shows that he's impatient, and this is a type of school for them to wear over the deck. Okay, this doesn't mean that everyone that does it is a Catholic, you have to realize, there's
a very important point here, an act might be careful that the person that does it is not necessarily a captain.
Do you understand this point? An act might be goofy, but the person that does it is not necessarily a captain, not necessarily he could be he could not be okay. When the attacker firstly when he knows that is when he knows that this act is okay. Secondly, when he is not forced to do this act, okay. If someone forces him to do is Dr. Cooper does not go for free, when he's not forced to do this act, okay. And these are the more critical conditions but the point is not every act of cover automatically makes the person that Catholic. Okay, so the process end of things, two things over here. Two things. If a person does then it is these are acts of COVID. He didn't say the guy's a
coffin, he says these are acts of prefer so it means that the person might be a Catholic, he might be a Muslim. The first is to curse your or to impugn your lineage and the second is to be will over the dead. And this is something unfortunately is all too common in our Muslim cultures of today. When a person dies, especially the woman focused on the winning them raising their voices, and crying out loud, and this is all a type of we're about to cry we said this is part of the Sunday when the pastor some cried when he said he brought him back, he cried, and he was so sorry, he felt sorry for him. Okay, this is a part of the sooner This is human nature, but to go beyond that, okay
to raise your voices to scream to shout to beat yourself, okay to say that, you know, we cannot live without you. You don't this is all types of okay a person must accept the patient accept the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not the world of debt. So, what is the point of recording this? How does this how this shows you that this is a type of impatience and therefore it is a type of prefer also, it is a type of impatient against the decree of Allah, because how did that person die by the will of Allah? Okay. So when you show impatient as that it is as if you are showing the type of people because you are going against the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, I say,
narrated, even Massoud read the loved one who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he who slept the cheeks tears
he who slept the cheeks tears are close and close to her close the way of the traditions of the days of ignorance is not from us. So in this narration, it's really saying in about 400 Okay, we already we're going to discuss more for it today but it doesn't say much more in the Arabic it says more for we're going to discuss the terminology in the afternoon class that we have
the department head of mixing he is not have a meaning he is not a perfect Muslim and he might not even be a Muslim again depends on how you do it with what intention do you do it? He is not he who hits his cheap, cheap You know, when a person dies, and tears his clothes and calls out with the cry of the jatiya now just talking about when a person dies, okay. And this is the customer the jahai is that the people would beat themselves beat their cheeks, you know, hit themselves okay. And it is also by the way, the reputation against the Shiites who do this on the 10th 10th and mojado. Because they do this
for the death of
not that this is
not even nearly the same as the massacre governor, right. They beat themselves up they go worse than those of you that have lived in other countries, they know that they actually they actually beat themselves with chains and knives and nunchucks with the you know, gross things. They do gross things they do. Okay, this is clearly not of a surprising thing. He is not a man who beats himself and who tears his clothes. Right. And who cries out with the crisis generally, what would the crisis Jamelia
the crisis generally there are many types of them of them was that Oh, how are we going to live without this man? Oh, he was the one that bought our clothes. He was the one that gave us our food. And this is nothing that this is this type of shake. This man didn't give you your food was Allah subhana wa Tada. And it was almost harder to give you a close. Okay, so well that cries out with these type of price. This too is not of us, meaning he's not of the perfect Muslims. Okay. So this tool is showing us that to show impatience at the decree of Allah to show impatience Why is according to study
because it deals with joint inpatients not just in general in patients but after decree of a lot of this is what is the type of Kufa Okay, a person who is impatient in worldly affairs. This is not good. It's not a solid. It's not a good Muslim character, but it's not perfect. But if he's impatient, if he shows anger at the decree of Allah, this is what might lead him to commit. Now.
A little level little Salaam says whenever
He hastens to punish him in this life and when he was evil for his slaves he was punishing him.
Now, this idea this idea, it's a process and the thing is a lot of once some good for a person, if Allah wants to have wants to have some good for a person, then the punishment that he would have gotten his own punishment whatever sins that he does have, he has done a lot to title without a will give it back to him and despite So, that on the Day of Judgment, he will be pure and clean, okay. So, he will be punished for example, with financial problems with you know, family problems with the death in the family, okay, he will be punished in this manner. So that his sins, not only not only will this punishment, that he is going to in this world, cleanse him of the evil that he has done,
he will also be rewarded for, for what
for his patients. So there's two things involved, not only will he not only will that punishment, cleansing of the sins, right? Also, he'll be rewarded for his patience okay? However, if Allah subhana wa tada does not want to good for a person, then he makes sure that his sins are not responded to in this life, rather other days, you won't just know when he comes, he will find all of his sins ready for him there and he will be punished on the Day of Judgment over there. Why is the recording is happy
to help the Muslims in their problems when a problem comes to you. Okay, then the Muslim should realize that come to that as an opportunity for me to get rid of my sins. Okay, any have anything happens to you so much. So the pasta sort of saying, this is a very good Harry, some of you might want to write it down. That no matter no strange or the affairs of the believers, strange or the affairs of the believers.
If something good happens to him
strange or the affairs of the believers, all of these matters are good as a result of a strange or the affairs of the believers, all of his affairs are good. Okay, if some good happens to him,
then he Thanks a lot, he is rewarded.
So we say strange are the occurrences of believers, everything that happens to him is for his good, okay, no matter what a Christian is, for his own benefit, it's some good before gonna follow something good for him, okay, some children some money, some, you know, house cars, whatever, okay, it's some good habits to him,
then he Thanks a lot. And so that is his good, he'll get rewarded for that too. And if some evil happens to him, that he is patient, and that is his reward also.
Okay, so he'll get rewarded for being patient. Even if an evil we call him some type of problem or calamity, or we'll see but afflicted him some evil because then he is patient. So therefore, he will be rewarded by Allah Subhana. Was that okay? So my service departments that have said that a man will be rewarded for his problems, even if it is a thorn trick. If he is pricked by a thorn, Allah subhanaw taala will use that to increase to forgive some of his his sins. And if he's patient to increase the, you know, his reward, so imperfect, imagine much more than this is the smallest thing that can happen. Is it going to if you just take it out and thrown away That's it? Okay. The thought
is that even this is a type of explanation for you, since it forgives you of your sins. And if you're patient, It rewards you and increases your patience. And so why is the author quoting is heavy
so that Muslims are patient in their afflictions, afflictions, once the problem happens to them, they are patient, they don't, you know, become angry at the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Play move on.
Let's deal with the reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the greatness of the reward is tied to the greatness of the title. When Allah loves the people, he puts him to the toe, whoever is accepting of it will have already acceptance and whoever is displeased and unexceptionable with with it will gain others discretion. Okay, so in this hurry the process I'm saying that
the more the more the mercy about the affliction is the greater the reward and it's something that is common sense, okay? A person that for example, His child died, okay, his reward if he is patient will be much more than if he lost $100 for example, okay, so always this common sense that the more bigger your most evil, your friction is, okay, the more award you will get. So this is obviously of the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada that.
This is also something to make you calm down to make you realize, no matter how big your affliction is, at the same time, we come to realize that insha Allah is a means of purifying my sins. And then the Prophet said, When Allah loves people, he texts them.
When he loves a people, he tests them, why does he test them so that he can use those tests to forgive their sins and injure patients increase the rents in paradise? Okay, you see what I was not going to test the people he loved, that he will use those tests to forgive their sins. He will use those trials and tribulations to forgive those for that person sins, and then with their patients who will then raise their rights and gender make them higher than what they deserve. And this was narrated in some thought
when I was a pilot, it
wants to cause a person to go to a higher rank and paradise. Okay, what does he do, he causes a loved one of that person to die, he causes a close relative of that person to die. Okay, and this is something that is much more painful to bear than monetary loss or a car loss or sometimes it's much more difficult to bury the person that you love, when he passes away, and when that person is patient, through that patient, what factors and causes him to achieve that rank and peritus? Okay, so the point is, if Allah Subhana, WA tada loves the people, then the general rule is that he will test them, okay. And then the person said, Whoever is content, whoever is patient, then he will have
contentment. In other words, Allah will be pleased with him, and whoever is impatient, whoever is angry that Allah will get angry at him. Okay? And this is why the pastor Sam said
that the prophets are going to be the people that are most afflicted, the most affected are the people, the most tested of mankind or the process, no group of people has been tested more and persecuted more for the way of a lot than the profits, even to the best of mankind. What does this show you? Allah Subhana, WA, tada is using these tests to make the profits, the status that they have to give the purpose the status that they have, okay, so the man like above doesn't think he will be tested according to his religion, the more his religion is, the more his test will be,
the more his religion is, the more his test will be.
Now, this is a general rule, it does not mean for example, if you see a person being tested left and right, that he is a pious person necessarily, this is the general Okay, that when a person is tested, he is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why he is testing him. But it could be the elephant that is punishing him also, that that person is also very evil and a lot of punishing him in this life and of the hereafter. So the point is, we don't use these type of criteria to judge anyone, Allah subhanaw taala knows why he's doing what you enjoy. But we should use this hobby for ourselves. That when an affliction before us, we should use these hobbies to in order for us to
increase in our patience. Okay, we don't use this idea to protect other people. This is something I find too common when a person is being is being tested a child does is that oh that person's going to intragenic? Who are you to make to say that that person can androgen this towards the type of copper, it is not your right to say this is an agenda we're gonna go to the fire of health, rabbit what you use these heavy for yourself. When an affliction befalls you, then you say this is because of my skin. And then you say I'm good enough, this is going to close my presentation and then you use these IDs in order to increase your patience but inshallah I hope that alone makes me the most
these people you don't use them to other people I forget yourself know, like I said this is a general rule. And it could be it is possible that a lot of terracotta does not trust anyone at this price. And because of the fact that he's beloved to him, that he saved him from the test of this life under heroescon Okay, and it could be that a lot of other tech person in this life to raise his rent comparisons. And it could be that a lot of our text that person in this life to punish him and also as a punishment here. So therefore, we don't use these have you can apply them to other people that this person is good, this person is bad, no, this is not the point of the you know, the reason
this IDs are given rather, we say that these IDs should be used upon ourselves, these headings should use upon ourselves in order to increase our demands. Likewise, we quoted them to people who are having problems, we put them to people that have you know, most people are afflicted or sensitive and we we try to make them also increase in their patience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now there are levels by the way of patient circles shiftless entertainer said that
the lowest form of being patient when I'm asleep befalls you is that you are you are not angry at that. Okay? You are not angry at that. That's the lowest the bare minimum that every Muslim must have is that you cannot be angry as that form of Decree above this is that you are content with it is that you know, the in the first thing you might you might get sorrow. There's a difference between sorrow and anger. You don't understand the difference between sorrow and anger. Okay, you have a relative of yours dies, of course you feel a pain in your heart. Okay? But this doesn't lead you to anger. Why Why did this happen? No, you're sorry that Allah subhanaw taala has will that this
person dies and he's no longer with you. You feel a pain that he is not with you in this life? Okay, but you don't get angry as Allah. So this is the lowest one above this is that your content is that if this affliction befalls me, it is I'm content with it. I'm content with a love decree. Okay? Because Allah has decreed the best for me, okay? And the highest form. The highest form is when you actually look forward to receiving most events so that you can use them to forgive your sins and increase your rents in paradise. So you actually are happy in a way. Now that happiness is that someone dies and you're happy, but a spiritual happiness is that 100 of our market is making me or
giving me an opportunity where I can show my patience. So this is the highest form now, the highest form it doesn't mean that you're not going to be sorry that a person dies, but it means you understand the difference. You're sorry that he died, but
You're happy at the same time that Alexa is afflicting you with something that you can use to increase your oxygen and Sharla if you are sincere in your reasons for doing this, so these are the various levels, the lowest level which every Muslim must have, and if he didn't have, he might fall into two types of Kufa is not to get angry not to get angry at the will and decree of Allah Subhana Allah. Now next up to our
next chapter, chapter 36, forbidden of showing up Okay, now we get to chapter 36, the chapter of the chapter of the which is showing off your good deeds. So now we've discussed a number of things of the hearts Okay, and now we move on to another aspect of the heart.
And that is what a person does a religious deed, a person who does a religious deed, but he does it not for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada, but rather so that people can see him do that deed. Okay, and this is a type of [???] it could be in general it is minus shake, and it could be a type of major shift. Okay? And it is one of the signs of the hypocrites, is one of the signs of the hypocrites, the Muslims and the movements. They do not practice it here. It is the hypocrites that are continually guilty of the
the first Hello.
Hello, the most exalted set, sail Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'm only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Illa is one Allah said whoever hosted the meeting with his Lord, let him work, righteousness and associated none as a partner in worship of his Lord. Okay, so in this idea in this verse, which is a very important verse, Allah subhanaw taala says, how's that? Well, Mohammed is a messenger or I am a human like you. Okay? I am a human like you the process of as a human being. Everyone knows he ate, he drank, he slept, he married, he had children. He died, he lived, he was born. A normal human being. Okay, what is so special about him? Obviously, Allah
chose him to be a messenger and inspired him that there is only one God you have. It has been inspired to me that you have only one either. What is the meaning of the word either? We covered this way back in the beginning of the chapter don't
the meaning of the word ILA in something you worship Exactly. Either means something you worship. Okay. Good. Yes.
Isla means something you worship. Okay. So you're either could be your money if you worship your money, okay. You either could be your wife and children, if you worship them, you obey them and everything they say, You're not could be your own desires. If you always worship them, doesn't matter. You deny anything that you worship? Okay. So a lot of things that are the promises that is being commanded to say that I have been inspired to do Illa is one ILA.
Why is this being quoted in the chapter via
because when you show up to that other person, it is as if you are taking him as an EDA, okay? Even though you're not you're not praying to Him. But there's a minor shift involved. It's not major shift. You're paying to allow your faith into him that you're praying to Allah, right? You're doing the recording, this is yours, but you're making it longer so that he thinks that you're more pious, or you're playing it just because I'm in the precipice. Okay, are you reciting it in a beautiful voice so that he can hear you? So this is not a major chicken, that you're not worshiping that mess, but it's a minor issue, in that you are showing off your good deeds to that man. So then this verse,
Allah, the President is saying that it has been inspired to me that you have only one either, whoever wishes to do good, whoever wishes to meet Allah, then he should do good deeds and do not commit chick in the worship of a lot with anyone. This too is verification of that when you do that, yet you come and shoot with Allah, you a minor shift, because you're showing off that B. So in this verse, Ria is being referred to implicitly and should major should be encouraged to explosively Okay, that it has been inspired to me if you wish to meet your Lord, then he should do pious deeds, what are pious deeds, deeds that are in accordance with the Sunnah, okay, and that he should not
commit [???] in the worship of Allah with anyone. And this list by the way, is also used to prove that in order for any app to be accepted, it must fulfill two conditions. The first one is what
is lost, the second one is metabo intention is to do the same thing. The second one is,
it must be in accordance to the profit center. This is very important is a important footnote here. This verse shows you that in order for any activity accepted it must fulfill two criteria. The first one is that it must be for the sake of Allah. Okay. The second was that whatever as you do, it must be accordance with this and where do we get this condition from in accordance with this? From this verse?
No one knows.
Right here, what are righteous deeds? How do we know what are righteous deeds through the center okay.
So this ratio is you have to have two conditions. Firstly you have to do like if it's well how do you know something is righteous? Through the Quran in the center, and he must not condition in the worship of his Lord with anyone.
Muslim reported in the following makuha de from Abu huraira Raji Allahu anhu that Allah says I'm most independent and free from needing associates who ever performed a deed well associating partners with me. I will leave him alone with his setting up of associates to me.
I haven't decided
what type of headache This is, by the way, no one says what's it what's nice about you yesterday afternoon?
What type of had you to look at it?
We took this yesterday.
The sisters know what type of hypothesis
they said. Let's see.
How do you spell t
we just did this use Have you understand this?
We haven't done before yet. Today
said that the province as Adam said that Allah said
Oh, don't say well, it doesn't matter. The point is that it says whenever you see this phrase and it would you know, it is happy to see okay, whenever you say whatever you seen the headings that Allah said you know, what's ahead, you could see okay, remember now, have you close you whenever I
said that? I am
not sure okay. And I have the least I have the least need of how does the transit, transit transit?
Okay, I am most independent and free of needing associates. In other words, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the least in need of associates, okay, well as human beings, they are in need of associates, okay? Human beings are in need of help, they are in need of people that help them a large part of the thing is that he is the recent need of shifts, okay, he is the least in need of shifts. So whoever did a deed where he commits should stick with me.
he commits if he wishes me with the intention of pleasing me as someone else, then I leave him with his partner.
What does this mean? It means that when you pray for Allah subhanho wa Taala, you're praying for Allah. At the same time, he has the intention of showing off, okay, you're leading the players and you read in a good voice, not so that you want to read in a good way so that people can praise you, people, you're doing it for the people. Okay, so you're praying for lots of other data, but you're also showing off? Okay, you read long passages of passages from students that, you know, the average person might not know, okay?
I'm just saying,
so whoever reads like, you know, whatever is showing off in this letter, he's doing it for the sake of a lot, he's also doing a type of [???] unless it I don't need this act, I am the least immediate. So I will leave that good deed for his partner. In other words, like another one, he says, on occasion, Allah will say, go and get the reward from the person that you did this for, you won't get it from me, you didn't do it purely for me go and get the reward from the one that you committed that shift. So you're showing off to those people, Allah will say go get your word from those people and tell those people which on the Day of Judgment, no, they themselves will be in the same
situation as you, okay. So, basically, you will not be rewarded for that deed at all, any deed that has sugar in it, okay, minor shift via that deed will not be accepted by almost
any deed that has been issued in it, that deed will must be accepted by almost entirely status, whether that might have should have was only the beginning. In other words, the only reason you let them in clear or you recited that sooner or you started the prayer was to show up, this is a type of democracy, and the person that does this, he might even be a minister. Okay. What was it that shift came in the middle of the Act, he started playing, okay. And then a person walked out and he saw some looking at him, so he made his prayer longer. So he started insincerely Okay, but in the middle of the prayer, he was affected by Yeah. And for the rest of the prayer, he continued with that,
yeah, it doesn't matter the whole prayer will not be accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, buddy, move on.
And was reported the following month with a deed from Hussein, the Allahu anhu, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, shall I not tell you what I fear for you more than the false messiah, that companions or the loved one from said indeed on messenger of Allah, he said, increase for instance, this year's shirt is is when a person improves his rendering of the Scylla when he knows that others are watching, okay, so in this Hadith, the processor
in ask them, should I not tell you that which I feel for you more than them as he had the judge who is the most recent the judge
right is known in English as the Antichrist right. Now how great is the fitness or the the the masiva Messi had the job?
All of the profits from the time of North till the height of the bunker for them one that people that get the job and a lot of the position said that there is no fitness that is greater since the creation of the earth until the day judgment in the fitness the junk that is how great his fitness and he told me believe that if you hear of him Don't even think I mean you can turn your backs and run away okay and he said a person and I go to the job thinking that his mind is firm but he will be changed when he sees the miracle that the judge has okay so great as a fitness despite that the processing and things should not show that I tell you that which I feel for you more than a job
so imagine how great the fear of this is now why is that because this is just a minor shift at the pump is talking about a minor shift is needed to major shift Okay, he was asked what is that? He said he didn't shift he didn't shoot so minor shape is also called hidden check what is the hidden shift? Well, it's because of the fact it's hidden. A person just opened a call to register a company we couldn't do that recording is called Tableau public Gilani This is open Britain shift you don't you don't need you know to don't believe you know, this is a person that says this you agreed or he prays to the process and I'm when he goes to the pub is great. He makes the drive to the process and
this is openshift everyone knows it and can see it. Okay, but hidden [???] if you're doing a religious deep, you're praying. So only Allah subhana wa tada knows your intention. This is why it's called hidden shoe. And he said that hidden shoe she could have gone by your shoe is more hidden than a black cat crawling on a black stone in the middle of the night. The middle of a moonless night. Can you anyone detect this as a black as calling on a black stone in the middle of a black moonless night? Can anyone detect it doesn't matter if your boss is saying that hidden shoot is more hidden than this?
Because you have to be careful now why am I doing this deed? Why for example, am I teaching these people? Okay? Why am I reciting the Quran in this way? Why am I leading the prayer in this manner? Okay, why am I making my scissors? Why am I doing this longer or better or whatever. So the Prophet give an example. This is an example that's not the only example of Manjushri but he gives an example that a person might stand to pray and he beautifies his prayer when he sees men looking at him. He makes his play longer, more beautiful, you know longer sizes when he sees people are looking at him. Okay, so, minor shifts. Minor shifts, the greatest one of the greatest forms of minor shift is via
showing off your deeds. Anyone that does rehab, it is one of the signs of hypocrisy, he will not be accepted by lots of Hollywood either his action is cursed so many other problems are associated with the
Chapter number 37 it is sure to perform a deed for worldly reasons. Okay, so in this chapter we're talking about it is also shift to perform a deed for worldly reasons. Is there any intelligent person out there or even sister brother or sister it doesn't matter who can tell me the difference between this chapter and the chapter that just preceded? Anyone can detect the difference between
just by the chapter title, you don't have to go talk to title.
Very good, Mashallah. Very good. The first one was fourth, please, by people, okay, you're wanting something which is intangible in the sense that people are praising you, they feel proud of you. They they want to you know, they feel good about you. This one is something that is worldly, monetary reason, status, a job, okay. So for example, a person will memorize the Quran, for example, right? Not for the sake of Allah, but he wants to become the Imam of that machine.
Okay, this isn't real, because he's not showing up. He doesn't want people to train him. But he wants to become a monster has a good salary, a good whatever. I mean, you know, will the reasons, not praise reasons not that people will praise Him and that's, you know, he's showing off his deeds, but for a worldly reason. So the author is saying that whoever does this, this too is a type of shift. Okay? If you do a really you, for example, you go to learn Islam, okay? Now you can go to learn the song for a number of reasons you can go for the sake of a lot. And that is why you should go to notice now you can learn Islam, so that people will call you an island and they can you can
show off? What type of what type of action is this? Yeah, you can also learn Islam so that you can, for example, become a professor at this university and have a good salary. Okay, go do a PhD, not because you want to show off to people but because you want to go work at this university or this place and have a good salary. What type of act is this? This chapter now? You're doing something religious for the sake of this dunya Okay. Now
alisan most exalted set, Whosoever desires to license the world and its glitter to them, shall we pay in the full of their deeds they're in and they will have no
human doing given the nation they're in there those for whom there's nothing in the hereafter but the fire and vein are the deeds they did they're in and of no fences at which they used to
play even this ayah Allah subhanaw taala saying whoever wants this
whoever wants this world so this is the point of diverse right? When you do a religious deed and you want this world, okay? Whoever wants mankind you need to have the dunya was enough to have whoever wants this world and it's glitter and glory. What is the Zener of this world?
What is this enough this was he
called me every single corner
Now, what are the dangers of this world?
Well, there's certain verses in the Quran that are better, you know, the clerics Listen, as well. The Luna Xena could have the dunya Okay, that children and money they are the Xena of this life. Okay, like what is another risk unless ASEAN and inoty of Boucher, what the Zener has been made pleasing to them to man in this world? a number of things. Firstly, Fukushima was the minister designing women, okay, the Xena of this is one of them is women.
And children will allow freedom of comparative value and to amass hoards of gold and silver in other words money, okay. Well, Clayton was so warm and horses and all kinds of cars, okay. When an army when house and cattle and cultivation, okay, so meaning you know, livestock cultivation, any lens that you have, so basically, are reflected in a number of vertices describing various types of Venus. Okay, so a lot of thing whoever wants this life and the Xena of this life, and he forgets life of the hereafter. He's not talking about ship right now. So talking about worshiping other gods, we're talking about you want this life. And this is the point of this chapter. You want this
life? Whoever wants this life and is Xena, then we will give him his good deeds in this life and they will not be shown any miserliness. In other words, Allah will have better terms miserly community, what is he saying?
The militia, in other words, a lower monthly miserly, every good that you have done, that you did for this world. But for the Optima, a low, we'll pay you back fully to the extent that you deserve but he will pay you back in this life. Why, what is the lesson, these are the words they have no share of the Hereafter, because they didn't do anything for the Hereafter, they did it for this world, okay, these are the ones that will have no share of the Hereafter, except for the fire of health, and all that they have done, it will be destroyed. And you know, it will be of no value what they did. So a person does all of these good deeds, but he does it. Not for the sake of pleasing
Allah, not for the sake of showing off, but he does is to attain some worldly benefits some worldly goods, Allah Socrates says, For these people, we will give them what they want, we will pay them back what they want, and we will not be miserly, we're going to pay it to the full whatever they did, they will be paid according to that what they did. But what is the side effect? What is this, what is the flip side of the coin, these are the people that on the Day of Judgment, they will have nothing except the fire of hell, and all of their good deeds will be destroyed and in vain, and they will have no value of what they used to do. Now, there are four before we went, there are four
categories that this was applies to write them all down important. There are four categories of people that this verse applies to. And the scholars of the setup date, interpreted, dispersed in all of these four manners.
four categories of people that fall under this verse,
four categories of people that fall under this verse, the first category are those that do good deeds.
They do good deeds, and they do it for the sake of Allah, they're not doing it to show off, they're not telling us what to do. Okay? But they are doing it to be rewarded in this life in the sense that they want us to give them money, they weren't allowed to give them well, they weren't allowed to give their same status, prestige, children. So they're doing it for a while they're not committing ship, right. But the point of they're doing it is they don't want gender, they don't want the opposite. They want to be rewarded in this life. Okay, so don't they don't care about gender,
they have no concern of the hereafter. So for example, a person hears the heavyset, whoever wants to have, you know, whoever wishes to increase his life that he should fulfill the times of kinship is how do you play this, okay? Whoever wants to make his life longer than he should fulfill the size of kinship. So the only reason he fulfilled the ties of kinship, not because it looks commanded him to do so not because to attain the rewards of luck, but because he wants to have a longer life.
Okay, likewise, Alex, the processor says, if you go for Hajj and Umrah continuously, right, it will increase in your money, this money will become more so the only reason he goes to Hajj and Umrah is not to please Allah. But why this increases money. He believes in Allah He believes in it, that's why he's doing it. Okay. But what are his intentions and this is a very
minute point you have to imagine this
In Arabic I wish you know the boys can understand Arabic to benefit from this hadith more the purpose of them is saying that meaning May he be May he be destroyed May he perish okay
so it's a statement of fact and it's at the same time it's a statement of fact in the sense that he is perish to worship the dinar is also a drop in the bucket saying May he perish if he wishes to be known. So both of the meanings are applicable in his head Okay, so the Prophet is saying guys have just been out the worship of the dinar is purged What does it mean the worship of the dinar First of all, what is the dino use of what's the Dena
gold coin? It's a gold coin basically.
A person who worships gold coin there was money How can a person worship money?
Okay, can you tell me how a person worships money
that they make money their goal of this life? They make money the only reason everything that they do is based upon money. Okay, so they have worshipped money in the sense that in the sense that they have taken this to be their goal. They want to increase their money they want to always get more money, they breed sleep, eat and money, okay? That's the whole purpose of life is money. Okay? So the process is called them the slave of money, the worshipper of money. So look now when you take when you do a check, it doesn't necessarily have to be to a god or a deity. It could be to a carpet it could be to a currency you can worship the dollar when you take that thing to be your goal in
life when everything you do is basically get more money than you as a worshipper of the door. Okay, so guys after dinner, guys up to did him. May He Perish the worship of the silver coin. So basically money I mean golden silver, okay. That is Abdul Abdul Camila. Camila. Camila, the truth has aquatera Very good, very beautiful. So
maybe para Shiva wishes to always his whole goal is to get good clothes. His whole goal of life is to get good clothes. Okay? Now, when you obviously it's not I don't earn money, it's not how to get good clothes. What is when you make this your reason for existence, when you breathe, eat, drink, sleep because of these things. Okay, your whole day and your whole life revolves around getting more money, more of this dunya This is when you worship the money, as long as you for example, a person he might be money minded and Muslim could be in a sense money minded, if he says if he says his five prayers, and he makes sure that he does his obligatory acts, okay, as he avoids obtaining money from
the home. And he makes sure he gives us the car and give charity, then he is not sinful. Okay? But when he doesn't care about what his where his money comes from, he just wants to get money, interest, don't interest mortgage, no mortgage doesn't care, just more and more money, when he doesn't care about getting sicker. When he makes his money, cause him to forget the obligations, for example, he has to go to work. So that is doesn't matter. We have to go to work more important, okay, only when I have time when I pray, okay? When he starts making his worship to that money, by neglecting a lot of commandments, that's where he is in danger. Or he is actually have fallen into
[???] where you actually worship that money. Okay, so the Prophet is describing this man that maybe perished, may he be destroyed, and he will be destroyed and perish. We said it's a sock, and it's a drug the same time, okay. And then the Prophet says, if he is given, he is happy. And if he is not given, he is angry.
So this is now not the characteristics of a believer, the believer is content and satisfied with whatever he is given. If he is given, he is happy, if he is not given, he is also satisfied, whatever I want to create is the best. As for the man who worships money, what is his characteristic? If he's given him happy? If he's not given? He's angry. So the prophecy guys that one second, may he be destroyed. Now he may he perished? And may He never ever succeed in what he's doing, in depth study, every good news that may his May his lectures become overturned for him, may all of his affairs becomes difficult for him. So is the drive that the Prophet attain? And it's also
a similar track. Do you understand what I'm saying? withdraw that given the fact of the sentence? Do you understand this special? What How is it a drop is actually playing to allow is a statement of fact.
If describing whoever is whoever worship the slave, he will whoever worships determine the nominee, he will perish. It's a statement of fact it's a drop at the same time. And then the Prophet is describing his pathetic situation. He thinks it's a solid prison, he will not be able to remove that fluid from him. So he is so dependent on his money. He is so dependent on his worship, that the poverty thing he is absolutely helpless, totally helpless. And it's also a draw. If a foreign person may never be able to remove that phone from it. If the smallest affliction happens to me, he never be able to be removed from it. Okay, so it's a statement of fact, describing his health versus the
situation is also do that if I told him he will never be able to remove that stone from him. And then the Prophet describes the opposite, exact opposite of this. Fool down the toilet.
What did he say
though that is a trend
paradise, okay, so that is a tree in paradise. So the edits a tree who is so long it takes 100 years for a writer to cross it shade. A huge tree. Okay, so the process is anything full but this tree will be for a servant. What is the description of the slave of Allah, he is holding on to the reins of his horse, fighting in the way of Allah, he's holding on to the reins of his horse in the jihad. Okay. And then he describes him as shot shot.
That His hair is all disheveled and dirty, muddy, dusty, maga, Bharatiya pajama, who is his seat are dusty, dirty, okay? In other words, he doesn't care about his appearance. Versus the first guy he wanted his commitment, Amina, he wanted those good clothes, he wanted his money, his whole concern is right is to look good. His whole concern is is his or her appearance. Okay. And by the way, in our time, many women they worship their appearance, okay, especially non Muslim woman, they literally worship their appearance, because the whole concern is how they look. Their whole concern. Their life revolves around their books, so they have worship their books, okay? This man, he is the
exact opposite. He's in the way of Allah subhanaw taala, holding on to his horse doing jihad. He doesn't care about his appearance. He doesn't care about this life. He's consumed with the opposite of that over the process itself. If he is in Shavasana, he is in Iraq. In other words, if he is in The Guardian, if he is guarding the army, then he will be guarding the army and if he is in the south, but if he is giving water to the army, he will be giving water to the army. What does this mean? Can anyone understand this portion of the honey?
This nose job no matter what they tell us to do, he is doing it. It's his job is to God, He will guard with it for valor with full enthusiasm. It's his job as he told him that your job is to feed water to the Mujahideen, then he will feed water with enthusiasm because he realizes that all of this is for the sake of Allah. He doesn't want the fancy jobs, the big posts, he wants to hear, he doesn't want to be in the limelight. He wants to do his job for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if the media tells him that your job is to feed water to the Mujahideen, he will do so with full enthusiasm, realizing that this is what Allah will reward him for. Okay. And then the puppet
describes this man, if he asks permission. In other words, if you ask permission to enter a house or to enter the the big tent army tent for the ask permission to enter a monkey and the permission will not be given to him. He's a nobody. No one knows it. Okay. And if he if he asked to intercede, if you ask them to see well, you know, don't pray so and so I know he's a good guy, a good intercession, he will not be listened to his intercession will not be accepted. In other words, he is a nobody in the eyes of the people, but in the eyes of Allah. He's a great man. So he doesn't desire fame. He doesn't desire fortune. He didn't desire that people know him. He doesn't care about
his appearance, His heart is out to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Only he wishes to please Allah subhana wa Tada. And this isn't the exact contrast to who
the other guys the other guys, his whole goal in life is to worship money to gain more dollars to gain more sense, to gain more clothes, to gain more houses to gain more cars, to gain more children to gain more luxury, whatever you want. This is his goal in life. Okay. And unfortunately, how many Muslims have lifetimes I started worshipping their money, started worshipping their prestige. All they care about is their status in society. All they care about is the money and the houses they have what is known as messengers, they don't include in this person's life, the prophet made a drop May he perish. And the point of this heading also a very important point that the prophets called
him, I'm the Dean of the worshipper of this the slave of the dino to sleep of money, he worships money, okay. So we have to realize that a person when he takes something as his God, as he obeys him, his whole goal is this and he starts worshiping that person is worshiping that object, he starts worshiping that that concept, whatever it is,
I think we finished the chapter. Right? And with that, we will open the floor for questions. So how to love them and how
should you ask Allah for sickness or problems so you can watch out for your sins? No, no, very good question. No, definitely not. A man came to the
lab was feeling very sick, you know, very bad as pocket time. The processor went and visited, he had a severe fever. Okay, so the, the process, the project for him said, What do you think to Allah, the man said, I needed to ask that he gives me all of my punishment in this life.
He gives me all of my punishment in this life, so that on the Hereafter, I will be free of punishment. So the participant said, somehow the law, you will never be able to bear that. Why didn't you ask the law to save you from the punishment of this life and the action, and this is what the Muslim does. The Muslim doesn't want to fall into a problem and in fact, he prayed to Allah to save him from any problems to save him from any affliction. Okay. It is a part of our image.
We pray to Allah to save us from affliction of this world and the hereafter. However, when an affliction befall us, that's when we show our human also. That's when we show our patients that we are sure that Allah subhana wa tada is the one that has decreed this and we must be satisfied that what he has decreed. We don't desire
to fall into a session we set when we said the three categories we said the highest category is the one that went before he is actually happy that it befalls him. Okay, he doesn't want it to default but what it does, is happy that Allah has given him the chance to show patience to him, but it is not a part of our human and we should it is very bad to ask Allah subhana wa tada to give it our punishment in this life. Rather, we asked a lot of but I think I could do better than what will give us good in this life good is good and good in the hereafter. We don't want to be afflicted with any evil in this lifetime the heroes This is what do I have that we make to all us? Yes
is long to pray to Allah not to test it was difficult tests. No, it is not long is it in fact it is in fact sooner to pray this type of test that our laws don't test us above that which we can bear right? Don't catch that that above that which we can bear this is part of the sooner you should pray to Allah subhana wa tada or will not do not test us more than we can bear. Okay, avoid and you can also think about that spider do not test us and despite what the hereafter save us from the punishment of this life and the hereafter, make sure you say of the hereafter also, we don't just want to be saved as a Python just fine and if based on the Hereafter, but no, it is a part of assume
that is definitely not wrong to ask the type of doc now
is really the only form of hidden if now what are the others? No, he has not the only the only complicated shape it is the most obvious and the most blatant form of hidden shape. But included in hidden ship is to be dissatisfied with a large degree. Okay? A person or relative of a person's dice. Okay. I will be showing patience. but inwardly he's angry. Okay, this is what happens in issue. Okay. And he says that is hidden in your heart and no one can come up to it. This is a type of finishing there are many tests have been issued. Now, can you show up in worldly stuff? Like other than what's in Islam, prayer grants. What about cars and houses? This is discussed in my book,
showing off my books. The jokes are
discussed in greater detail in the book that I have reacted in check
that showing off in worldly affairs, right? It does not come under the app that is mentioned in these headings. But it is a sign of arrogance and a person that's sinful for doing so. Okay. It is a sign of arrogance. And a person is sinful for doing so it doesn't fall under the religious area. Okay. It's not my leadership, but it falls under arrogance, and therefore a person is punished. And this by the way, showing often this type of affairs, your cars and your money and your your house. The next thing you're going to do is show up in your worldview and your religious affairs. It's the stepping stone to the showing up in worldly affairs is a stepping stone to do yeah, okay, so no
Muslim should not show up even in worldly affairs. We know that affliction does not necessarily mean your price person. But can we strongly believe that any affliction was going on with queens our sins? Even the major ones and Queens all sins are some of them. Yes, it is. This is the whole point when an affliction befalls you, you should use this Hadith, right? You should hope that inshallah you shouldn't say that for sure. You should the insha Allah Allah subhanaw taala will cure me will purify me of my sins through this affliction that has come to me. Yes, for sure. This is a part of our image, but we don't say for sure we say in sha Allah. For sure we should use this ID. But we
shouldn't say because these things are politically I'm a pious person. No. Because these lessons these afflictions are coming to the other person know when an affliction comes to us. Right? We should be optimistic that insha Allah, Allah is testing me inshallah. I should be patient and expect to receive the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, so we don't say for sure. But we we optimistic This is the whole point of terracotta Raja of hoping the best from Allah, we hope the best from Allah in these things now.
Yes, these type of things in sha Allah, they also cleanse major sins but the scholars say that you also need to do Toba major sins you must do Delta you must repent for major sins okay, but these things after eighth and ruling your major sins but along with them, you should use tilbyr major sensitive eating interest and you know use three and fornication after fornication is a major sin and alcohol and drugs these are major sins these you need to do tilba but you can you know, it shall be optimistic that if something like this occurs to a Muslim or a Christian, you that inshallah that will help you in moving your major since
this last question. You said that you should not worship money, fame, etc. But let's say you want to progress in this society but you're afraid that you will fall to shirt. So how should you push progress in this society, a becoming a doctor etc.
But the point is you should not make this your goal in life you should not make this your demand is that the point that your whole life revolves around, okay? As long as you intention are for the sake of Allah Subhana, WA Tada, okay, then you can, for example, your intentions are to earn a higher living when you go to law school or medical school or law school is a bigger, you're gonna have to be careful about a lot of a lot of life loss stuff might be hard, but then when you go to medical school, okay?
your intention is to earn a living. So you're going to med school not because of a shared reason, but you want to earn a living, okay, at the same time.
Suppose you have some knowledge, okay? You want to earn a degree or
a religious thing in order so that people can acknowledge your status or acknowledge your position? This is not this is not as long as your intention is to please Allah. In other words, okay, let me give an example. Like for example, I'm a University of Medina, right? Many of our teachers, they tell us, they tell us, every year, they remind us over and over again, that never make your goal to get the degree. Never make a goal to get the degree in Islamic University of Medina. Okay, your goal while you're sitting here is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. However, use your degree in the worldly sense, because you know, that in our times, a degree from the University has certain things
that will, that will that will come with that, that you can have a job somewhere that you can, you know, give Dawa and what effective means, okay? But never make that your goal. Make it a means don't make it your goal, your goal should be the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for example, in our situation, right, the students that are studying Islam full time in a degree, we have a degree of a bachelor's, master's PhD, right? Our goal for getting these degrees should not be the degree itself, that should be the pleasure of Allah Subhana without us, but we can also want to get this degree to make that work easier for us. Okay, when we have a degree in, you know, your estimate,
it'll, it'll make our job more easy and that people will not respect us more than just a person on the street. Okay, so our goal is not that person, I'll go with the first of all, shall we pray that our nation is our goal? Okay. But we can use that degree we can use that thing that we have done. For some worldly benefits. There's a question.
Okay, any question from the brothers? Is it wrong to want to acquire knowledge to teach others religious knowledge to teach others? Is it wrong to be more motivated to learn because you want to teach as long as your intentions are? to please Allah subhana wa Tada. And your intentions are to teach others, to purify them and to make them close to your religion. This is fine. your intention should be for Allah. Why? Why are you teaching other people so that people can call you a famous, you know, so that they can worship Allah subhanaw taala and you can get the rewards and you can guide more people to Islam. Yes, use this as an incentive. This is not chicken because they
essentially go back to Allah. Why do you want to teach other people to please Allah? Why do you want to teach other people why do you want to spread this knowledge to gain more reward from Allah? Five use it as an incentive? Okay, because it all goes back to it all goes back to pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada. It is not wrong. And the point is, your intentions must be for Allah. Okay. Why are you sitting here to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why are you learning more than, you know, increasingly to gather to teach other people also, to make sure that you also understand fine, there is no contradiction is because all of it goes back to the pleasure of Allah subhana wa sallam
