The Muslims be conscious of Allah as Allah subhanho wa Taala has reminded us in the Quran, you Allah Deena Amano tapa la helper to rt watamu tuna Illa unto Muslim moon.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

Do you know what was the first act of worship? That Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated and taught to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? What was the first ritual that was legislated in Islam. It is recorded

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

are books of Suna and Sierra. That the day after yeah you heard Muslim mill was revealed. The day after the very second revelation came gibreel came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and spent a day with him and he taught him will do and Salah for one day, Bahasa Malaysia and then fudger Jubilee rally his Salaam taught the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them how to do will go and then the timings of the Salah. So today's brief Hooda will be a topic that perhaps we think we know. But in reality it is something that is so simple and bless it and fundamental that even if we know what a reminder is encouraging and good, it shall be about the blessings and the importance

00:05:49--> 00:06:36

of the first ritual and that is will do, we are all taught as children the famous Hadith that are Porou shot through a man and we translate it as cleanliness is half of faith and that is not an incorrect translation. But the more precise translation is will go is half of faith because the who here doesn't just are primarily mean having a clean body aka who is with a flathead and that means the water that is used to perform the will do so yes being pure being clean is half of a man. But the implication in this Hadeeth is making sure you do will go and maintaining your will do is half of a man Why? Why is this one small ritual that takes half a minute that we just do without even

00:06:36--> 00:07:19

thinking that we walk into the restroom in front of the sink and splits flush and we're done. Why is this equivalent to half of the entire Eamon because we'll boot is symbolic of everything else think about it, who does will do the one who prays regularly and who prays regularly the righteous and the pious. So the will go is the key that unlocks all the doors of piety as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said had it is in tirmidhi law you have to do either will do i mean nobody is able to maintain their will do except the movement who does will do all the time who is the one that is constantly asking Am I in will do or not? Who is the one that will go back and forth and cleanse

00:07:19--> 00:08:00

themselves. It is the one who is the movement. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, none shall protect their will do except for the moment. And in fact, in one of the hadith of God in the famous hadith of God, when God had asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is Islam, of course, that famous response of five pillars is given, but in some versions, another pillar is added. And that is the version of even hoceima where the Prophet sallallahu was send them ads before sign up, he says, and that you do will do before every salah and pray five times a day. So the phrase is added a part of Islam is to make sure that you do will do regularly and our Prophet

00:08:00--> 00:08:42

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strongly encouraged us to do will do, even if we have will do when we stand up to pray. In the famous Hadith he said, we're it not something that would be too difficult for my oma. I would have commanded them to do will do every time they stand up to pray. This is a beautiful adage memorize it. The prophets are saying, I know it's difficult and that's why I am not i'm not commanding it if you have will do you can pray. If you have will go you can pray you've had will do from voters after time go ahead and pray. But what did he say? Were it not for the fact that it would be too difficult from my own mind. I would have commanded them I would have required that

00:08:42--> 00:09:24

every time they stand up to pray they should do the will do again. And we all know the famous Hadith that never does a person take water in his hand and bring it to his mouth except that when he spits that water out, every Lieber every new Mima, every sin that his mouth has done also washes away and when he washes his hand, everything that his hand has touched that he should not touch it washes away when he washes his eyes and face every sin that the eyes have done washes away. So the repetition of booboo is something that will cleanse our deeds and that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever does will do and prays regularly it shall be a kuffar a means of

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

forgiving all the sins that are done in between, if we do will do and pray five times a day our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that insha Allah we can be optimistic that the other says that we do it is going to be a cathartic or an explanation of all that is done. And in fact we have in that beautiful Hadith as well. The hadith of Bella Robbie Allahu Allah and that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he came back from Estonia, Raj, he said ob Nan, I visited Jenna and I heard the flip flop of your shoes already there. How did you get there? Of course.

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

The notion here is not that we'll enter gender before obviously, the profit system will eventually enter agenda when it opens up. But this is so in their origin. It's an indication the Profit System was meant to ask me like, you're doing something special. I heard your footsteps and I'm already there, and you're already ahead of me not that he would enter but that VLAN has a blessed place. So the Prophet system said, ob lol, what are you doing that is causing me to hear your footsteps in genda. And Bilal famously remarked, I don't know anything or messenger of Allah, except that every time that I break my will do I stand up and do will do and pray to the cat. Every time I'm

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

constantly in the state of will do and I'll just pray to record when I do, we'll do the one deed that he could think of Subhana Allah how much blessing it became that even the Prophet sallallahu I that he was seldom was informed by Allah subhana wa tada in this manner, that it is something that will bring about the admittance to gender and being very high in gender. And in one Hadith, Abu huraira narrated that on the Day of Judgment, every single believer will have markings will have a shine coming from him. And he said the famously that Yabloko heylia will mean that the shine of the believer will be the places that he will do will do from the shine of the believer is where he is

00:11:21--> 00:12:01

doing will do from therefore that means that wherever we do will do it is going to be assigned, it is going to be a blessing, it is going to be a light that is coming from us and of course we'll do leads to sign up will do and so that are intertwined. And we know from the Hadith that Johanna will never touch any place of our body that we used to do such the on anybody who regularly did such the Johanna will never touch the places the face and the hands and the feet that will do says that to Allah, so we'll go and sign up are intrinsically linked together and their blessings will be seen in this world before the next Dear brothers in Islam. Brothers and sisters in Islam, much can be said

00:12:01--> 00:12:48

about the world. But there's one heavy that I find the most amazing and the most optimistic, and it is one that I constantly remind myself of, and I want you all to also memorize it in a beautiful Hadith reported in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting amongst the Sahaba and he said, How I wish I could see my brother in my ear. So the Sahaba said the other sort of law are we not your brother in Are we not sure what he said? No, you are my us hab You are the Sahaba my one my brother and are those who will come after you have never seen me. And they would love to give everything they have in order to see me. They are my brethren. May Allah make us a

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

monster. The Sahaba said Yasuda law. How will you recognize your brethren when you haven't seen them?

00:12:57--> 00:13:05

You guys paying attention to this beautiful Hadith. The Sahaba said yeah, so you know us we know you but your brother in how will you recognize them? He said,

00:13:06--> 00:13:51

Do you not see the stallions of horses that are white streaks on them in Arabic is called hora. Ron Morehead Janine and the most prized horses to this day. The most precious horses are the horses that have that white streak on their foreheads and their arms and their legs also have white streaks that are multicolored and if you look at any you know, horse photography, right, these are the prize photography of horses to this day, it's ingrained in us that the horse that has this markings is the beautiful horse, the profitsystem said if one of you had one of those horses, and a lot of horses that are the same color brown, would you not be able to spot that one would run Morehead jelly in

00:13:51--> 00:14:37

that one stallion horse amongst the entire herd of horses? They said of course almost an interval of course you can spot that one horse so he said in the same way, my own machelle come who run more had jelly and I'm in a thought and will do their faces and their limbs will be standing out from the crowd. Millions of people aren't pajama day but I'll be able to spot based on what's dear Muslims based on what Lauren Mohajer Lena Min 13 will do from the effects of the will do their faces will be shining bright, their arms and limbs will be shining bright. So I will be able to spot them on that crowd on the day of judgment and then he shall be able to call them to drink from the held and the

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

pool will lie he dear Muslims if this was the only blessing of will do if this was the only mark of will do it would be enough of an incentive for us to be continuous in our will do how much more when we have more than 12 blessings that I'm not able to mention more than a dozen blessings that are separate for will do what then have the blessings of this small deed dear

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

Muslims our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most blessing of all deeds to Allah is that which is constant, even if it is small will do is small but if we do it constantly we shall insha Allah who tada attain a very high blessing in this world and in the AF era May Allah make us amongst them May Allah bless me and you with and through the Quran and may make us of those who is vs. They understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah is forgiveness you as well ask him He is the food and the rushman

00:15:39--> 00:16:15

Alhamdulillah Halawa hadn't had a summit a lady limited William youlet William Yakutia Hakuna had a bad day Muslims realized that the will do is only needed for two rituals, the salah and touching the Koran not reciting the Quran, you may recite the Quran, when you're not in Volvo, but not instead of Genova. But to touch the most if you need to have Volvo some ad You should also have will do for the auto off. So, these are the two or three things that you need will do for anything other than this, it is most of it is good to be in the state of will do and our Prophet sallallahu either he was seldom would maintain his will go even when he is not praying and he will do will do throughout the

00:16:15--> 00:16:44

day and night and even before going to sleep and he will do will do as soon as he woke up in the morning and he will be in the constant state of will do but this is enough. This is something that is good but it is not required or mandatory. Also dear Muslims all of us should study the basics of how to do will do and what brakes will do because when we increase in our knowledge, then by acting on that knowledge will come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala dear Muslims, the topic today was about will do but I want to segue into two other concepts number one,

00:16:45--> 00:17:25

some might think it to be trivial. But subpoena law. These rituals are the backbone of what makes us Muslim. These rituals are what demarcate sin separates us from all other faiths. Our will do our Salah ours aka our siyam our reciting of the Quran, this is what makes us Muslim. So when we are interested in these things, we are eager for these things than insha Allah to Allah we are demonstrating our Islam and also increase in our knowledge in your knowledge on Muslims Subhana Allah inshallah to Allah I hope after listening to this cookbook, and realizing that when you stand in front of the sink and you doing will do this is how your prophet and my Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:17:25--> 00:18:09

are going to recognize you insha Allah, that one line will impact the rest of your life. How can you possibly do will do in a lazy manner, in a manner that doesn't understand the implications when you realize this is the mechanism of cleansing my sins. This is the mechanism that will open the door for Allah drachma. And this is the mechanism that our profit system will recognize us. So if one Hadith can impact the rest of your life, which in Charlotte will do from today, then how about more knowledge? How about learning the field of although How about learning to harder and sign up? How about learning the idea about this beautiful topic. Therefore, Muslims led this hole to be an

00:18:09--> 00:18:49

encouragement for all of us to open the door for knowledge. The one who studies Islam begins to enjoy the worship of a law, the one who has a relationship with the books of Sunnah and Hadith and Fiqh. The one who studies how to worship Allah begins to enjoy the worship of Allah and the one who doesn't know the the worship becomes monotonous robotic routine, you don't enjoy you don't have that spirituality. And I gave you one example with this knowledge that will do a link so as to Allah links as to gender links as to the Prophet sallallahu why they he was setting them in sha Allah for the rest of our lives, we will never trivialize will do so what is going to happen if you study more

00:18:49--> 00:19:29

than just 510 minutes. And point number two, and this is just as important. And the amount of has already mentioned, this is a Luma Dean, and other great Rama mentioned this, that we have to be careful that we don't take fick as the end all and Beall. In other words, if I'm going to assign dimensions, we have to be careful that we're washing ourselves outwardly. And we're never once thinking about washing ourselves inwardly. We have to be careful of becoming outer Muslims and not the ones who know that the Sharia goes with the schema of the soul. They go hand in hand. You need the outer law, but you need spirituality as well. There is an implication there is a reason we're in

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

a society. They didn't care about the hora and the jossa and cleanliness, the Shetty came and they told a society of desert people who didn't have that much water Allah still mandated Wash, wash, Wash, wash, clean, clean, clean, clean. Why? Because there is a higher spiritual goal of cleaning the heart cleaning the soul cleaning the mind as we constantly wash our outer body. We should make sure our hearts are also pure in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. No showing off no wanting to impress

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

Other people have a pure heart for our fellow Muslims. So the outer and the inner go hand in hand. And when we do that, then we reach the level of ersan. Every single outer deed must impact our inner core as well. And they will do is have the easiest symbols to understand, we are supposed to have an outer cleanliness, but that is meant to indicate an inner cleanliness as well the outer and the inner should coincide. And that is one of the wisdoms of the will do dear Muslims, some might think this act to be trivial, but in reality, if we understand that we'll do is the opening of salah and that all of this is of the fundamental pillars of our religion, that we understand how blessed and

00:20:41--> 00:21:22

important these rituals are indeed and will do or the holeshot total a man and no one can protect and maintain the will do accept the ultimate believers May Allah zoji and make us amongst them allow men in the Divine Feminine allama that IV How did you meet them a lot of water water Hammond illa faraja wala Dana De La Casita water Maria on Alicia feta, what I see it on La assata allama filling out what is one in Alinea, Sarah who never been a man what I feel for Luna Zilla Lila Tina Amano. robina in Nakuru for Rahim Allah Hama is an Islam on muslimeen Allahumma is an Islamic Muslim in Allahumma, Adana, Otto that Islam will miss him in a bit so in huben FC, which added Mira javita
