Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala CD mursaleen Sayyidina Muhammad, while early he will be He will send them to Sleeman kathira Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. This is mams a check here. I'm here on behalf of zaytuna College and hamdulillah is a great honor to be part of the team that founded that college and to continue to be involved with the college is so great, great honor. Allah subhana wa tada has conferred upon myself, and the others have worked so hard to make this dream a reality, the dream of zaytuna College in our reality, but hamdulillah This is our second installment of the

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

series examining the poetry and

00:00:55 --> 00:01:04

Laura Roger bill Henry's law firm out of FEMA and the miroir summon minimal virus and

00:01:06 --> 00:01:29

his section in Ramadan. And as you mentioned, doing something a little different looking at the poor tree just to show just to highlight rather the importance of poetry. And not only Islamic literature, but and Islamic religion, religious writings. And, as we mentioned, this is inaudible hanbali This is a, you know, someone

00:01:30 --> 00:01:34

who's from sort of a,

00:01:35 --> 00:01:45

how can we say, fringe orientation in Islamic, theological or scholarly

00:01:46 --> 00:02:12

tradition, but someone right at the core of the more conservative side of the tradition, but his book is replete with poetry. So we were dealing with our poor to relate it to two sections of the Hadith that served as the introduction to the first part of the book and the Hadith we mentioned yesterday. We'll just mention the relevant relevant sections of the Hadeeth.

00:02:13 --> 00:03:03

To start off today, and the relevant section the Hadeeth is relayed by beholder over on radi Allahu anhu. Call Call our pseudo law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the site Amy for her attorney for Hutton and the property here we're Farhat on Anneli. Hi, Robbie. Well, well hello femicide me after you're born the law he Murray Hill misc. So he says Rahim, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the fasting person will have two delights to rely on, he or she meets the Lord. And first, excuse me the delight when they break their fast and the delight when they meet their Lord. And they followed or sometimes emanating from the mouth really originating in the stomach of the fasting person is sweeter with the

00:03:03 --> 00:03:06

law than the fragrance of mosque. So

00:03:08 --> 00:03:11

the verses will examine not just

00:03:12 --> 00:03:20

highlighting the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so and in our literature, there's a lot of

00:03:21 --> 00:03:25

a lot of our scholars have dedicated ourselves in describing

00:03:26 --> 00:03:37

the the meeting with Allah based on their their internalized experiencial experiences. And so now login was perfect. So we'll start

00:03:38 --> 00:03:55

this will not matter him hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala ZD mursaleen say the Mohammed while early Asante he assoluta * kathira column Sunday for him to follow while he will be called as my

00:03:59 --> 00:04:34

so one of the poets mentioned cover rod him to Ogden, Tommy rod fee and taraka many assume on merfolk to rotten performance lcme on uncIe wacky and see where can I find for CME uncIe worker? So he says that the spiritual aspirations of a servant has become very, very great. So Cabo rot hemal to Adam, and he is longing to see you.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:56

So he's longing to see you. One who fast from those physical things one might fast from those fixed physical things that break the fast so fast from water from food from relations, etc. But my thirst is from us from anything other than you.

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

And so this is the the fast of the

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

RDP, the first of those who have experienced in their lives in the reality of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they've moved beyond conceptualization and that reality is so powerful that it destroys the desire for anything other than Allah. As someone might ask, how would such a person function in the world, they love what their beloved loves, and they know their beloved, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves charity, their beloved low loves that, to ease the burden of those who are weighed down and oppressed. There'll be love, it loves to visit the sick, whom I serve, and I was sick, you did not visit me, how could I visit you, you're the Lord of the world. Do you have the worlds Do you not

00:05:51 --> 00:06:16

know that my servants so so so and so was sick? If you had visited him, you would have found me there. And so one fulfills one shot at and one's ethical obligations, knowing that those things are pleasing to their beloved. And so those obligations and fulfilling them are a function of one's love for Allah subhanho wa Taala when one attains to that

00:06:17 --> 00:06:22

rank of Madiba internalized experiential

00:06:23 --> 00:06:26

knowledge of Allah subhana wa tada Swami

00:06:32 --> 00:06:38

so another party relate Yeah, Happy belco lubi many co worker

00:06:39 --> 00:07:12

your handle yoma Moodley been caught attacker there's a long duration for the the meter of the verse says let's see where care and attack care. So see worker at her care recently filled Gina animal layer up soon. While you're an OB Halle araca Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala Sayidina Muhammad says oh the the Beloved of the hearts a law

00:07:14 --> 00:07:28

there is no one for me besides you have mercy this day on a on a criminal who has come to you. I have no need and Jen in paradise oh my oh my lord for ahead.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:33

Other than it is necessary for me to see you

00:07:37 --> 00:07:50

know, basically Villa Jean anymore lay around soon over me will be will be around araca. So the eye is the head is the repository of the eyes and therefore the head is

00:07:52 --> 00:08:14

this is a rhetorical device. Vic will call radical Bab mentioning the whole thing. But intending the eyes that are in the head of the head rather in English, mentioning the whole thing the head but intending the part of the head, the eyes that the head contains and then there's the opposite

00:08:15 --> 00:08:28

the crowbar way rather to call we are on the tip of coal. So mentioning part of the thing but remaining intending the whole thing for example,

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

carry a rock.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:36

So literally liberating the neck, heavier rock.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:47

And so the neck is mentioned what the entire body liberating the entire body of someone who might have been in bondage

00:08:48 --> 00:08:49

almost salia rasulillah.

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

So another poet, he said,

00:08:53 --> 00:09:29

in Yeoman, Jeremy and shim DB him there k Ed Leslie II don't see Well, let's see well. So it says, verily, this is the day who I gather all of my affairs, focus my affairs and to one of fairness is this similar to Jamila? Who moon hem and Wade, collecting, gathering all of one's concerns into a single concern? And that concern is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So

00:09:30 --> 00:09:37

just generally jumperoo shamli Gemma jumper Whoa, whoa, whoa, mommy.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:56

So he says on a you're on a day, all of my concerns, all of their concerns that my concerns are, are gathered. That day is my aid and I have no other aid besides that day. So they're gathered

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

and focused on the meeting with

00:10:00 --> 00:10:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala and the dev the meeting the dev the warrior that is eight. So they say there are

00:10:08 --> 00:10:18

two weekly, rather weekly that is Joomla two annual aids which are ido furthur, which will have in

00:10:19 --> 00:10:28

three weeks or so a little over three weeks, I used to filter and it will have her and then there is

00:10:30 --> 00:10:30

a fourth

00:10:32 --> 00:11:04

and fourth aid is the other worldly aid and that's the devil to do who your maiden now the Euro Illa Robbie hair now lira faces on that they will be illuminated gazing upon their Lord, however that will be so we don't know how that will be when the the eternal meets the tempo, when the unlimited unrestricted meets the unlimited when the the

00:11:06 --> 00:11:23

the creator meets one of his creatures, when the one who is beginningless which the one who he brought into existence at a certain point in time we mentioned temple. So in any case, how that will be

00:11:24 --> 00:11:26

Allah Allah but it will be.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:34

It will be it will be a physical reality. But the nature of it. We don't know this remining

00:11:41 --> 00:11:42

Sanjana Segan

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

so that's the ease of the Adi theme. That's the EAD of those who have experienced the reality of Allah beyond conception. So we can conceptualize. For example, ohms or Sula?

00:12:02 --> 00:12:16

What honey tastes like someone can describe it. Like says like sugar, but not quite like sugar because its flavor and sweetness is different. And depending on the honey, the honey is various flavors are different.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:44

And they can go on and on we can have an idea but until we've actually tasted honey, then we really don't know once we taste it now it's move from conception. So we have a conceptualization of what honey tastes like, based on the various descriptions we're getting. But once we have tasted it now it's experience. And this is why the

00:12:48 --> 00:12:54

trends, conceptual realities, panel,

00:12:58 --> 00:13:33

skewed some of the books, and our spiritual tradition, and the book about vow. A vow is the thing that cannot be fully captured conceptually. So intellectually, we can't fully capture it we have to actually experience so learn after tasted. And once we taste it now it's it's so much more powerful and conceptualize, that it moves us to a different realm of experience.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:46

Allah blesses me entering them from almost said he was selling on TV no Mohammed Ali, he was happy he was then

00:13:47 --> 00:13:50

so another one of the poets he says

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

our batteries

00:13:57 --> 00:13:58


00:14:00 --> 00:14:00


00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

Heavy oil cans.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:09

Was that fee Hassan era show?

00:14:11 --> 00:14:13

while laughing see he who

00:14:17 --> 00:14:32

said the humbling of the the masters of their souls, and that the the whims and caprices of their soul mastering them, they totally ignore them, they have no power over them. So someone who's

00:14:34 --> 00:14:52

unrefined spiritually if the the Hauer just says, aren't you hungry for Burger King now? They started salivating just that the suggestion? Yeah, I'm hungry for Burger King. Now. While they are babble However,

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

those those things have they have no

00:15:00 --> 00:15:04

pathway to enter into the realm of perception.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:10


00:15:12 --> 00:15:12


00:15:13 --> 00:15:14

head to hearing

00:15:17 --> 00:15:22

some people seeking, then there is no

00:15:23 --> 00:15:23


00:15:24 --> 00:15:26

weed and transmit

00:15:27 --> 00:15:29

and they think spiritual.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:32

There is no

00:15:35 --> 00:15:43

with the mess. Salam alayhi wa sallam let's this the B

00:15:44 --> 00:15:45

and the A

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47


00:15:48 --> 00:15:51

B the one of the greatest mean

00:15:53 --> 00:15:57

one of the greatest means, and that not

00:15:58 --> 00:16:01

that humility is said

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

to them are bad is

00:16:05 --> 00:16:15

the thing of the master of was the greatest means for spiritual elevation brothers and sisters, because

00:16:16 --> 00:16:20

one can only elevate, push oneself so high.

00:16:21 --> 00:16:45

But there's no limit to how far Allah Allah can elevate you, or me or anyone and our prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned, while mirta water, I had only lay in there, rough out who law no one humbles themselves for the sake of Allah except that Allah elevates the level of our who law

00:16:46 --> 00:16:53

except Allah elevates them. Never forget that brothers and sisters. So humility is one of the greatest

00:16:55 --> 00:16:56


00:16:57 --> 00:17:15

on the path to a loss of handle time. So today, our Babel how're thilawa. So they're humbling, the humbling of the masters of the soul, the caprices of the soul, in love is his, his might.

00:17:16 --> 00:17:23

And so a person who's just madly in love might say that they're like a puppet.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:35

Whatever she tells him to do, he does whatever he tells her to do. She does. Because she man, she's crazy in love. He's busy, he's mad in love.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:36


00:17:39 --> 00:17:44

But when the beloved is subhanho, wa Taala is is the

00:17:45 --> 00:18:07

Fokker room. Now people who will can Zoo and the impoverishment is an expression of the need, for the beloved, is a treasure. So the poverty Fokker Omu. Now we'll have B, who will Kansan who will cancel it's

00:18:09 --> 00:18:30

the poverty measure, when the poverty is the depth of their acknowledgement of need for their beloved Allah subhanho wa Taala was set to remove his aura era surety bond and they're hiding the secrets that be exists between them and their beloved is is broadcasting it.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:36

So the the joy some people get from broadcasting secrets.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:44

They get the they they get that joy, the joy of broadcasting by concealing it.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:52

And well hey, Rotella enough sci fi who will advise you and anything short of just

00:18:54 --> 00:18:56

using up their entire

00:18:57 --> 00:19:05

self for the sake of their beloved as weakness. So tell us a little bit worn out and exhausted.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:28

And they gave everything for their beloved anything short of that is weakness. Now a lot tirely give us tofik I mean, we exhaust ourselves right now athletic endeavor this season and you left it all out there on the field. You left it all out there on the court. You left it all out there on the track.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:39

Are we leaving it all out there for loss of Hannah? What are we holding back? Now like it was tofi Can they see?

00:19:40 --> 00:19:40


00:19:42 --> 00:19:46

mama sedan is eating any CPU.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

So he then says no, the poet

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

and this is related to the final point or without Whoa, whoa, whoa. loofa femicide me are terrible and Allah

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

The reason misc voices

00:20:05 --> 00:20:23

volatile Philip b mcomber Mercado de Habibi, Shara foo. So a person humbling themselves and love is nobility, not debasement. It's nobility.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:28

I some people are afraid to fall in love because they feel they'll be abused.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:32

Because if I'm in love and then

00:20:33 --> 00:20:40

humble before this person, they're gonna walk all over me and so they put up this wall.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:46

But we don't need a wall between us and a loss of Panama.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:52

We don't need because a law will never betray his beloved,

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

alone will never betray his beloved

00:20:58 --> 00:21:01

law give us tofik and obeying Him

00:21:03 --> 00:21:08

and his obedience to His Beloved, his honor.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:21

So his humility, and love his nobility, and his obedience, his honor, Scharf.

00:21:22 --> 00:22:06

Then he has a there are many section in this book, though, they're actually prose, but they're extremely poetic. And this this this one of the beauties of this book, not often life of me, Roger linearizable handily is that there are many passages that their prose so they're not poetry, but they're extremely poetic. And so there's one of these so we share that in sha Allah who Tyler. So he says the Rahim Allah lambda, lambda su Silla shade on the shadow Ramadan karma that neuron shall wear TBC and he says,

or lomita holla. See, well muda see where modality, no one but the false claim has been left behind, has remained behind very tertiary and get to home jacoba loony I wish I knew if I were to attend to them, they would accept me and turn around and there be him also Fuli or would they cast me away from their doors? And torani either walk off to Law Day him or you see me if I were to stand with them? First, then who with the holy yada yada dulli would they give me permission to enter along with them? Or would they cast me away? and other words

00:33:21 --> 00:33:33

the hammer pushes us by none no one who really understands our religion takes anything for granted.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:45

It can't be excuse me a taint can be traced taken for granted. We're going to enter Paradise and that's why some people are puzzle. Some Christians are puzzle

00:33:47 --> 00:33:50

when when they asked you

00:33:51 --> 00:34:11

are you going to heaven and the Muslims say, inshallah Allah if Allah has mercy on me, but will not give a definitive Yeah, I know I'm going to heaven because we don't take that for granted. And then there are other theological reasons that restrain us, but we don't we don't take a lot of mercy for granted.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:30

And we have an we have indications, but we don't deceive ourselves into believing that those indications are assurances of our success. They'll give us trophy but we're at peace.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:55

We're at peace so we're not agitated and anxious. But we don't take anything for granted and this is part of the the balance the toe as soon of the believer or Matan whatsoever between extremes. So we're not at the extreme of assuming, as they say, we're in like Flynn.

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

I'm going to john, of course, I pray every night. I do

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

As Ramadan I do our 20 ra custom taraweeh

00:35:04 --> 00:35:21

and we don't despair and we're not filled with anxiety about the situation and we do our best we make a good meal and we trust that allows mercy but we don't take that mercy for granted then he starts a new section what a mobile law this section is

00:35:22 --> 00:35:32

based on the Hadeeth of him that best is dealing with charity. So the the lessons from the first study which we mentioned the other day

00:35:34 --> 00:35:35

those are done

00:35:36 --> 00:35:45

in the associated poetry is actually done I discovered that I missed a verse But it was along the lines of those that we

00:35:46 --> 00:35:47


00:35:48 --> 00:35:53

and so will relate the Hadith and then we'll open up for for questions in Sharla

00:35:55 --> 00:36:14

for column on sunny for him Oh hello whenever analog will be who will be command line I will mention I'll measureless with any default little Judy if you're on Madonna want to wear dilla Tim Korean so the second section of the book literally the second sitting literally smell money

00:36:19 --> 00:36:57

deals with the virtue of charity and during Ramadan and reciting the Quran so the idea was to say hey, I need the best and I'll be alone and humor call caller call. So is describing the Prophet not relating from them. So the line and if not best in radi Allahu melcombe cannot Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Jordan nursey were Edward mlu Khun McKenna Edward and are you calling for Ramadan? Hina yo Oh jabril for you daddy. So who will tell you the rest who are as

00:36:58 --> 00:37:00

well as you Bri Lu

00:37:01 --> 00:37:22

yo car Who? kulu Laila 10 min Ramadan for you the Quran without Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Healey, y'all called you briella gibreel furon Madonna edge word to fill it men are Rehan more Salah. So, he says that

00:37:23 --> 00:38:11

the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him was the most generous of all people in the time that he was especially generous was during Ramadan when the angel Gabriel will come to him and review the Quran with him. And the angel Gabriel will come to him every night during Ramadan. And when the angel gate Gabriel came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam to review the Quran, the Messenger of Allah was solo and he was Selim was more generous in charity than the free blowing when that indiscriminately disperses the seeds indiscriminately disperses the rain to all quarters. So a lot doesn't hold back the rain from lands where people are idolaters and centers. the

00:38:11 --> 00:38:32

generosity of Allah such that Allah just indiscriminately sends the rains in the seeds and the prophets Allah Sanam was more generous than those free blowing or what some sometimes some transit as the Falcon dating wins Salalah while he was selling, so the poetry in this section is dealing with

00:38:35 --> 00:38:43

the charity and dealing with the recitation of the quarter so we'll stop here until next week

00:38:46 --> 00:38:46


00:38:49 --> 00:39:00

So question yesterday does not being able to protect our eyes from template thing in society, Homer fasting, this is the whole point.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:03

Once you

00:39:05 --> 00:39:18

move beyond the physical, then your your eyes don't even notice those around things. And so the logical follow up what if I haven't reached that point?

00:39:20 --> 00:39:58

Make an intention and then try and with with your good intention, inshallah Tada. As we mentioned, we're mad Tada. so humble yourself, admit your weakness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. I had only learned a lot of Allah. So you might not be at the level spiritually, for those things don't affect you. But Allah subhanho wa Taala can grant you protection from himself because of the sincerity of your Nia and not because of the advancement of your spiritual state. I'll give you a trophy.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:05

Ah, en je s. What was the problem Hansel is our opinion on portee.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:12

Suffice it to say that the prophet to use a term we use the hired

00:40:13 --> 00:40:26

has done a fair bit as his poet to respond to with Islamic poetry to the insulting derogatory poetry of the idolaters. There's sufficient right there.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:43

So the process of the seller he had has sent 1000 and others respond in poetry to the poetry of the idolaters. And so the owner of the opinion that Portree that is negative and

00:40:45 --> 00:40:46


00:40:47 --> 00:40:56

is insulting, which was an abundance amongst the Arabs that poetry is, is forbidden.

00:40:57 --> 00:41:09

But Portree that's in agreement with the message of Islam that defends Islam, that reminds people of a law that poetry is encouraged.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:12

commissar rasulillah

00:41:13 --> 00:41:18

and there are many examples where we mentioned in the case of her seldomly sabbat,

00:41:19 --> 00:41:23

we mentioned we can mention the case of a reseller.

00:41:34 --> 00:42:18

I'm trying to think of the Scripture right now. But the verse of lobby for the prophets of some mentioned, the truest thing any port says was the verse of the beat. And Escape is a well known verse, but there are many instances of that where the process of selling a front poetry and there are other instances where his words conformed to poetic meter, even though he didn't initiate as poetry per se. So for example, on the day of her name, on the processor, and under Bo like added, Kevin, I never know Abdullah Todd. So I'm an I am a prophet that's no life when everyone when Benny has in

00:42:20 --> 00:42:26

ambushed the Muslims that who name with an ambush of arrows there were expert

00:42:28 --> 00:43:24

archers, so the rain down a show of arrows on the events in Muslim 40 forces, and many of the newly converted people who are in that army, they fled away but the profit of the Sunmi cub advancing through the shower vows, it's and then the BU like Kevin, and no Abdu moqtada that I'm a prophet. It's no longer the son of abdom Apollo, and he kept advancing and so that that was Rogers that was a form of some people's eroticism, poetry, but it conformed to foiling meter. Another person asked, How can we ensure with our busy schedule that we focus on a lot focus on a lot in your busy schedule? Like say if you're working on an assembly line and a factoring you so you could just go

00:43:24 --> 00:43:25

through the Martin was thinking

00:43:28 --> 00:43:30

or you could go through it?

00:43:31 --> 00:43:42

Allah, Allahu, Allahu Allah. Allah, Who, Allah Allahu, Allahu Allah, and so Vicar as you work,

00:43:43 --> 00:44:33

Vicar as you work, Viggo as you drive your car make salotto on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as you drive your car and make delila lella in the in the law as you move between tasks in your busy day. And so we have to take advantage of the free time we do have because we added it up we find that it's hours every day, but we don't take advantage of it and then we are we come under the ruling of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he said solo and he was seldom near my attorney maga Boonen mabuni on fee Hema Kathy Roman a nasty or so hottie will say hi to well first off, there are two great blessings most people are cheated out of their health in their spare time.

00:44:33 --> 00:44:59

In other words, while they're healthy they don't take advantage of that to pray more the fast more than the old and weak and fatigued and they can't bear the rigors of extra fasting and praying and and and welfare off in their spare time. So wasted and this we just wasted it with nothing. Sometimes were wasted with empty things watching television going on these chat rooms

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

Not the chat here.

00:45:02 --> 00:45:32

But those chats we just chit chat about everybody and go on, you know, let's learn to this chef, and get involved in this controversy when it's none of our business chat room and all of these things, and it adds up to hours every day. So feel those hours at dounia. Sir, fetch out help. Ah, this world is about a moment filled that moment with the obedience of Allah. So we have a question from China.

00:45:33 --> 00:46:12

Sangha saramonic, on progress sisters and her, if your father is doing something wrong, do you need to ask him to stop? How do you talk to him about it? Well, if, if you can find a way, if he's going to respond violently, are not enough physical violence necessarily, but with harsh words that will multiply the wrongs he starts cursing at you. And now the wrong that is doing is compounded by the wrong of his words. So if that's the case,

00:46:14 --> 00:46:19

to see you, you say that there isn't.

00:46:20 --> 00:46:22

You can to remember him

00:46:23 --> 00:46:27

on that he's doing try to take advantage of

00:46:29 --> 00:46:32

also how can we found laziness in this

00:46:34 --> 00:46:40

by reflecting on the fact one of the most precious, because every moment

00:46:42 --> 00:46:59

is a manifestation of patience, and the reward of patience is unlimited. So fasting is is patience, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even mentioned this in relation of the mandatory meeting, as phone

00:47:02 --> 00:47:04

Ramadan, Shabbos, sober

00:47:05 --> 00:47:08

Ramadan is the month of patience,

00:47:09 --> 00:47:19

this follow, pay, fasting is half of of patience, the exegete so the verse was saying Sabri

00:47:20 --> 00:47:51

basically help our patients in prayer the same with as the verse a three year was, so they're fasting and prayer. So what is the reward patient and you work for so Buju Rome will release the patients will be given the reward of miracle limits, limitations, so fast and no more limitation. So moment passes, heaping, immeasurable amounts of good and two hours.

00:47:52 --> 00:47:53

Another reason

00:47:55 --> 00:48:04

I think one might have this, there's, we mentioned that and we hope rhodiola run

00:48:05 --> 00:48:27

this in, a Muslim will start unloading the admin and has no center to the actual area and a separate email address. We'll call Allah, there's no one called Allah who has lost in the Holy Land hzb that every action undertaken by the child of Adam is, is for him or her.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:54

And good deeds are multiplied 10 times over 700 times over another hardy flinches, Ill often kathira many times over and beyond that, Allah says, except fasting that is mine, and I will will reward the serving with that. Allah says except fasting, that's my fasting is that reward that edgers for law, another version of that Hadith in Sahih Bukhari.

00:48:56 --> 00:48:58

The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says,

00:48:59 --> 00:49:17

Allah becomes Hadeeth kotze cool, I'm living cooler and cooler. I'm living the addenda la huka Pharaoh. Every action undertaken by the child of Adam is a source of atonement speciation, extra expiation for their sins wipes out their sin.

00:49:20 --> 00:49:32

In last summer, as Somu Lee were an HDB except fasting. Fasting is mine. I will reward the sermon. So based on this version,

00:49:33 --> 00:49:44

Sophia, earlier one of the greatest scholars from the early generation of Muslims, says that on Yom Kippur, a process called Rob du Laval, then

00:49:47 --> 00:49:54

our printing press pressed they'll take from my goodies, one or the other.

00:50:01 --> 00:50:04

Your solo said that

00:50:05 --> 00:50:12

listen Shatta Wale Dora had done that man had

00:50:15 --> 00:50:16


00:50:18 --> 00:50:20

So who's the bank? this

00:50:21 --> 00:50:36

one this one's no well for merchandising, that's not what I'm talking about. Either the one who was slender this one in stock, not taking them wealth and they will come and they will take them as goodies and take them.

00:50:37 --> 00:50:45

And gentlemen arena is that some people have done so much with people, all the good days.

00:50:46 --> 00:50:47


00:50:48 --> 00:50:48

a lot

00:50:51 --> 00:51:44

of those days still, in return to them the reward of their fasting because no one could take that because it's not ours ours en la cama the end the holy Illa Soma in the holy when Zb. No, except fasting, that's mine, that's the laws, and I will reward them with it. So he says after all of the hassanal are gone, Allah will return them the reward of their fasting and many people will enter Paradise based on the reward of their fasting alone. And so Sena if that doesn't get the laziness out of a person. I don't know what was knowing that this one action is earning reward that no one can take. And if all of my actions are taken by those I might have a wrong I might have wrong.

00:51:45 --> 00:51:52

The reward of my first thing remains so shouldn't we want that to be as much and as boundless as possible?

00:51:54 --> 00:51:55

Allah, Allah help us off.

00:51:56 --> 00:52:12

Sara denish is back for round two. And she asks, Is it okay to ask Allah for spiritual guidance? Would that be deemed greedy? No, ask Allah. You wait We ask Allah right. For for

00:52:14 --> 00:52:26

leadership of the righteous in Quran was unnaturally mucked up in a manner make us leaders for the righteous. And leadership in Islam is coupled with knowledge

00:52:27 --> 00:52:46

is coupled with knowledge. And so but we ask spiritual guidance for the sake of actualizing our server to to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yani, the data will be cake rubia

00:52:48 --> 00:52:54

to actualize our servitude, and not to show off before people not to make some claim that

00:52:55 --> 00:52:57

the great spiritual master,

00:52:58 --> 00:53:09

there was one this is a story. This isn't necessarily true. It could be but I don't think it's true. It's a lesson. So I'm just telling you, we're not supposed to

00:53:11 --> 00:53:52

invent thing or lie about things. To make jokes. It's a little bit of a joke. But it's probably not true. And so it's just a story to convey a lesson. So this is a person who traveled the world looking for spiritual mastery. And someone said, there's a spiritual master in the high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. And so he went as far as he could go and a rented car. And then he walked over hill and dale and mountains. And finally he got to the village. And so everyone was at this area,

00:53:53 --> 00:54:14

the center of the shift, and their heads are looking in the window. And they're just describing the shakers. And look how humble he is he's praying is one of his voluntary prayers. The cow humble is. This is recitation that who Sure. So

00:54:18 --> 00:54:31

and it's hard, it's so soft, and he's crying, they go on and on and on. And then when they finally fast, he turns to the one and when they finally stop, he turns towards the window. And he says, and I'm also fasting.

00:54:33 --> 00:54:52

In other words, one does it seek spiritual guidance to impress people to be some sort of charlatan, but to actualize their servitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then this goes on, because maybe we're not worthy of the race station

00:54:53 --> 00:54:59

and in only a law in the only law he

00:55:00 --> 00:55:01

Now hold on I named him

00:55:03 --> 00:55:06

a lady in ermine will can we attacco

00:55:07 --> 00:55:12

the Alia the befriended the beloved, that helped

00:55:13 --> 00:55:14

of Allah

00:55:15 --> 00:56:07

or those who believe and have sinned sincere faith. So that that's the that's the requisites not we don't have to think oh I have to be super Muslim. Oh you you have to believe from the law. You have to say land Hello Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah sinner sincerely and try your best to be mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala never see yourself. Allah says what are called Koran. Now, Benny Adam, the human being, regardless of his or her religion, has been a noble byelaw that's why we don't mutilate corpses and warfare of enemies. And because of the basic kurama the basic dignity that our laws conferred upon the human being. So if you're a human being, and then that dignity is enhanced by

00:56:08 --> 00:56:42

being a believer will Illa * is that what you're assuming he will email me Nina when I can monitor cleaner lay on the moon. And so they honor the dignity is for Law and the messenger and the believers is the hypocrites who realize it not so if you're a believer, then you should see yourself as worthy a worthy recipients of the gifts that Allah gifts that Allah Allah might send to you. So should we be grateful with how much now that he has already given us interesting whether small should be

00:56:43 --> 00:56:57

that would that be no ask. And it doesn't negate humility, because you're asking not for the Anglada and grand aggrandizement of your soul. You're not actually asking so you can

00:56:58 --> 00:57:27

hang out with the scholars or you're asking so that you can actualize your servitude and that's what it's all about. Well know how not to general insert Illa Dr. Boone, I've only created the gin and the the humans that they worship me that they serve me that they are my a bad area to prune. And so our Lega Yeah, we get a bad law from the DMV, I'm sure.

00:57:29 --> 00:57:51

So we get the service and so we seek knowledge, seek guidance. We seek that for our Elevation for excuse me actualizing our certain service server to Allah subhana wa Tada. Yeah, a baddie. caloocan ball in them and

00:57:52 --> 00:58:06

they to festa dooney and decom Oh, my service, all of you are straight, except those I have guidance, guidance. Seek my guidance and I will guide you so there's your answer, sister.

00:58:08 --> 00:58:13

Seek my guide asked me literally we said it's 10 form festa dooney.

00:58:15 --> 00:58:34

Ask me for guidance and I will guide you. So it can't be clear. I could have saved five minutes just by saying that from the very beginning so that the time has passed people on the West Coast have to break their fast they have to get ready for thorough Wi Fi on the East Coast after go one two tarawih

00:58:35 --> 00:58:51

Milla bless all of you or there's one more question since our already made you all Li let's make it official. So system, file, file payment and mood as how can we attain deteriorating mental health?

00:58:52 --> 00:59:07

That you should consult a mental health professional and if they're Muslim or the better, they have cardio centers popping up train Muslim psychiatrists and psycho therapists

00:59:08 --> 00:59:27

consult a trained mental health professional because that's an answer that river requires some medical expertise that I don't particularly possess. So May Allah give you or whoever you're asking for tawfeeq and

00:59:28 --> 00:59:32

look of ease and gentleness

00:59:34 --> 00:59:55
