Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala CD mursaleen Sayidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam testiment kathira rabina lac al hamdu kamma Jamberry Li jela rewatch it Willie all the miso ponic subhanak Allah Sita and elegant camera Nutella Nasik Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik Allah say Eden or Habibi, now Mohammedan while early he was Sammy he was selling this demon kathira es Salaam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh This is mams a shack here and we're here to once again discuss the beautiful do our that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us

00:00:45--> 00:01:33

indirectly and taught his companion dear companion, our dear predecessor Evo, Mama, radi Allahu anhu directly, and we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the prophet and that is Allah humma in the old who became in a heavy one hazard when I became an adze world castle, where are all becoming a Jubilee world, borehole, where are all the becoming a gallops it daywalker region. And he instructed him if he were to say that in the morning and the evening will drive away the worries that were overwhelming him and consuming him and it would dispense of the debt that was weighing him down. So we mentioned in a previous installment, Minal Hemi will hazard today brothers and sisters, we like

00:01:33--> 00:02:29

to briefly talk about his saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were at all the weaker, middle aged sea while castle and I seek refuge with you from icy, which will translate in the course of explaining it, because it's a bit involved. A castle, and we can generally say rare laziness, but that's also involved. So I see. Number one, it's it's the opposite of strength. So who are dead dual kuwa is the opposite of strengths are its weakness, its increase in capability and capacity, to not have the capacity owing to one's weakness in a particular area. To do what one should rightly and fittingly do, this is ages, this is one meaning of it. So along the India or the becoming an adze, I seek

00:02:29--> 00:03:07

refugee with you from this incapacity, and this weakness that can be for any of us. So we seek refuge with ALLAH, and seeking refuge with the laws we've discussed previously, his protection has shelter holding fast to him, fortifying ourselves with Allah subhanho wa Taala. In so doing, we find strength, we find strength, we're weak brothers and sisters, we are arges, the active part of participle of ages. We are arges. We are weak or wholly unconcerned with our etha. The human has been created weak,

00:03:08--> 00:03:41

but with a law was strong. So one of the meanings of seeking refuge. As we said, we fortify or strengthen ourselves. We protect ourselves, we're weak, and we're unprotected and we're vulnerable. But when we seek refuge with ALLAH and we seek shelter with along we hold fast to Allah. We become strong brothers and sisters. And so I just are in cap capacity, our weaknesses eliminated. There's another meaning of it. And this is why we didn't want to translate it

00:03:42--> 00:04:40

with a single term in this context, the overview Yes, weakness, I think we mentioned but in this context, no, another meaning is who neck a dual hazard is the opposite, or the the the negation of deliberateness to be deliberate and conduct conviction, Hazard or decisiveness? There's that there's the word decisiveness. So I just as in decisiveness, I should do No, I don't know I shouldn't go. I don't know. I want. I don't know, I should go back to school. cannot really afford it. If you wanted to go back to school, you find a way to pay for it. No, should I get married? I don't know. No, if you want to get married, you find you found a good person with good character and good deed.

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

If you wanted to get married, you get married.

00:04:44--> 00:04:58

But so we're seeking refuge with a law firm that in decisiveness of Muslim is has conviction as as a conviction, and a Muslim has has a masm What hasn't

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

come

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

eviction and decisiveness

00:05:03--> 00:05:50

way that assumptive that what kalaeloa once you've made up your mind you convinced place your trust in a law and go for it. So brothers and sisters may one of the blessings of Ramadan be that we are strengthened by this month that brings us so close to Allah subhanho wa Taala through our voluntary acts when the Takata robber la Abdi have been no Ethel Hatter when when zelle Abdi wala is L Abdi, your Takara de la have been the width and height that bad. And my servant continues to draw close to me with the voluntary deeds until I love him until I love her. And so once that that occurs, then we have conviction.

00:05:51--> 00:06:05

We have conviction and we're decisive in our affairs. We're not wishy washy people and wishy washy in this this leads us to Castle castle we said laziness but one thing we can say is wishy washy.

00:06:07--> 00:06:51

So, the hypocrites in the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and this is a religious term, it has a linguistic meaning but it also has a religious meaning those who manifest in a religious sense. Other than that, which is in the hearts they have no belief in the hearts but they manifest belief outwardly. This is a hypocrite. So one of the things they will do they will cooperate with the Muslims but how would they pray? Allah tala describes them in the Quran, where either Kamui la salette your cow Moo coo salah and when they come for prayer, they stand for prayer they do so lately, there are all the hypocrites who in the back row, they barely were able to drag out a bed,

00:06:52--> 00:07:01

make sure you know the prayers started and then they come in line up in the back rows. They came late easily. They were wishy washy and

00:07:02--> 00:07:32

assembler right in that cluster versus a lot of these tiles describes him without there being a banner that ik layer Illa hula, he will let you learn how they vacillate the wishy washy without that even there's some anemone appear there, where the sound indicates the meaning of the word. Without that move that they're being that they're bad, the bad bouncing back and forth. La ilaha illa Allah Allahu Allah, now firmly in this camp nor firmly in that camp,

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

we seek refuge with Allah from that

00:07:37--> 00:07:47

dictionary definition of castle. So those are some of the meanings the word involves. One of the dictionary definitions is

00:07:48--> 00:07:58

finding weightiness and those things a person loves to do. That should not involve any burden.

00:07:59--> 00:08:06

Finding weightiness and burden finding something to be weighty and burdensome that you would love to do

00:08:08--> 00:08:11

which should not ordinary involve that heaviness.

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

So an example that we just mentioned, prayer, shouldn't be waiting. And prayer is something we should love to do. Because why? Because prayer is the greatest expression

00:08:27--> 00:09:09

of our love to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Our product, we're reminding them to call and call quantum to hipbone, Allah has said David Rooney, you have bib como buloke mooloolaba comm 104 rasheem say to them, oh Mohammed call your Mohammed say to them, oh Mohammed, if indeed you love Allah, then follow me Allah within love you and forgive your sins and allies most merciful most forgiving. So what's the point was the symbol of our following the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in terms of our actions, the greatest symbol of our following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our actions is the prayer

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

is the prayer. And so the prayer, which is the key to a law's Love is something that should be beloved to us.

00:09:20--> 00:10:00

Fed Tabby, only bill Camilla Follow me, Allah will love you. Follow me, Allah will love you. So we shouldn't find weightiness in things and following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so this is a beautiful reminder for us in Ramadan, the fasting even during these long hot days, that we're experiencing this particular Ramadan, some of the longest days of the year, and one of the features of this Ramadan throughout most of the month each day, the each day the fast will be a little longer than the previous day. Because we're moving

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

Towards the summer solstice. So it's going to be longer the second day of Ramadan than it was on the first longer the third day than on the second even though in these Long's in it long and in many regions hot days. We should love to fast and we should find no burden in the fast some misguided people. They said lead take leave a burden will soon there is no religious responsibility to after you have arrived to Allah. mm Junaid said about those people. wa sallahu wa salam ala Sokka people say that they've arrived All right, they've arrived to the fire of hell.

00:10:42--> 00:10:58

That's not true. But what is to lead a call center battle will soon there is no burden after one has arrived. There is no burden. Because we're rival means what?

00:10:59--> 00:11:18

One loves Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah loves one. You have boho, we have bone. He loves them. You have a home while you have bone a home and they love him. He loves them. Almighty Allah loves them and they love him is reciprocal.

00:11:19--> 00:11:38

And when that reciprocal love is attained, there is no burden. We'll pray all day. Will fast all day and night will go without eating. And we won't even think about it for the first few days because we're in love. We're all shook up.

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

We're in love, that's what love will do.

00:11:43--> 00:12:06

And when you love Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah loves you. There is no burden Ramadan, Bismillah ethno silent tarawih 20 Records and our Salah let's do it the Maliki way let's do the 20 in between the breaks this do for more I know what's happening. Pray all night. Allah salad fast all day read the Quran, there is no qualify there's no burden.

00:12:07--> 00:13:00

Because we're in love. And there is no laziness. Because that love has brought us to seek refuge with our beloved, that love has brought us to whole fast and seek strength from the strength of our beloved, that refuge has brought us to a position of fortifying ourselves through our beloved Subhana Allah. And when that happens, there is no weakness. There is no in decisiveness. We know exactly what we're going to do. We're gonna love Allah subhanho wa Taala and we're going to do whatever that love Intel's, as we mentioned previously, and now more heavily man you head back, the menu hibou butea the lover obeys their beloved, and there is no laziness. There is no burden.

00:13:02--> 00:13:54

You're a Muslim and as Ramadan No, there's no burden Alhamdulillah another day of Ramadan to get closer to my Lord, another day of Ramadan to be able to engage the court and in the month of the Quran. When the meanings and the understandings of impressing themselves on my heart like they do during no other time of the year and hamdulillah lan halala brothers and sisters Allah Hama, India became in an icy well castle, I seek refuge with You yo la from weakness and capacity from in decisiveness.
