salatu salam ala rasulillah
salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri long aluminum and federal now and certainly Avi miralem. Tena was a dinner at maniac Kareem.
By the grace of a lot of articles data we come together
in the second day,
or the last day of the series of lectures, entitled,
the purification of the soul, as we mentioned, that usually when they speak of the purification, or this key to neffs, they speak of
two subjects at large, the soul and the heart. And this short series of lectures for lectures in total, they're focusing on the heart particularly.
So yesterday, we were discussing the different types of hearts.
Do we have a volunteer to sum up first the different types of hearts?
Okay, pick the sister there. Okay.
Yeah, that's right. Well, we had one brother, giving us these hearts and one sister.
So you have the
I'll call the city, the pure heart, the dead heart, and the sick heart.
And then we started discussing
what exactly is it
that causes the sicknesses of this heart? And you particularly mentioned for, or you're about dimensioned, for you mentioned to yesterday?
So who would like to mention that? Also, with a raise of hands?
Because if somebody doesn't raise your hand, I'll pick ahead.
What exactly is it
that causes the heart to become rusty? Because we were discussing yesterday, the different types of things or different actions that
can poison an individual's hearts you already answered. So if somebody else if you're you're
not remembering Allah subhanaw taala? No, that wasn't amongst the things.
Those were the two different types of sicknesses of the heart. We were talking about four poisonous things to the heart. Is there anybody from the brothers know?
talking too much? Yeah, we discussed about talking to watch. That was one. Number two.
Exactly. So not lowering an individual's gaze. So that's two.
Now today, inshallah, we'll be discussing the third and the fourth. And along with that, we'll also be discussing the things that replenish this heart, what exactly is it that an individual can use to help him fix this heart because we mentioned again and again, and we'll do that again today as well, that the prophets of Allah Are you sitting them inserted into, verily the hearts become rusty. So the hearts when they stay away, from the degree of a loss of handle data from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala, from
the obedience of Allah azza wa jal, then this can cause this heart to start to become rusty.
And there are certain actions that work towards causing this heart to become rusty faster. And amongst those actions, is eating excessively, eating excessively, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you know, he used to be extremely martyred, and even this kind of an affair.
That's why the prophet SAW Selim, he said, the million children, that a child Adam has never filled
a vessel worse that his stomach, as in a person should be eating moderately.
And the reason for that, and the relation of that with the heart is the fact that when a person has
a very strong blood flow, and is
When a person has a very strong blood flow in his body, it becomes easier for shaytaan
to take this individual
and occupy him in the disobedience of Allah subhana wa tada How so? Let's look at the story of when the prophets of Allah even sent him was walking out of the messenger that he was with his wife, Sophia.
We talked about that story from another angle yesterday.
What did the prophets of Allah send him say?
He saw the tools have started speeding up when they saw the profits of the loan and he was setting them so the profit is unlimited. And he said Allah Mr. Kumar, hold on guys, now Sophia, Tony severe.
So, the profits, Silliman continued and he said, for initial bond, add divini, Adam measured them very variation on flows in the veins of the child of Adam.
Just as blood flows just as blood flows. So based on that, he said, so long as the blood flow is extremely consistent.
As if a person is energetic
it makes it easier for shavon to use this individual in the disobedience of Allah subhana wa tada that's why when the prophets alerted him, he told you know, the youth to get married he said, Yeah, I'm actually Shabaab support I mean, common back affiliate is a watch whoever is capable from amongst you, oh,
youth or young man, whoever is capable from amongst you to get married, the land get married, get married.
And whoever can't let him fast Valley he will solve
for in a hula hoop. For Verity, this will cut off his desires. Because he doesn't have a very strong workflow.
He doesn't have that consistency, that energetic,
He doesn't have that. So for that reason, the prophets Allah seldom encouraged this individual to do what to stay away from food.
So for that reason, it's better for an individual to eat also in moderation.
And then the third thing, or the fourth thing, rather,
alcohol aka intermingling,
can be chant,
mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salaam.
Where he said,
method, release of soil was so the example of a pious friend,
a good friend, and the example of another that is not so good
to have he did a miscue in Africa. The example of these two is like the example of the one that has mosque.
And another that glows in bellows.
And another that glows and bows,
then the prophets of Allah suddenly continued. And he said for her meeting misc.
As for the individual that has the most it's either that he will present to you this mask
will emerge and it's either that he'll present you this mask or you buy from him.
Three things either you get it from him as a present, either you will present it to you gift it to
either your purchase from
this, that or you will just have good scent, the smell.
How is that similar
to an individual
is a good friend, a pious friend,
he will present to you,
you give me the opportunity to do good deeds.
Either you ask him something and you explain to you
what you're asking him.
either this or that, or you'll never see any evil from him. He'll always be good to a good friend.
And then the profits allegedly continued and he started talking about nothing could keep you started.
Speaking about the back friend, he said, the example of that bad friend, however,
is like the example of the one who blows in battles.
I hear you will burn your clothes,
or you smell a bad scent from this individual
as the lows into the fire,
the ashes will come and make little holes into quotes.
As he sees me,
slowly, but surely,
I die after another black dot after another, we placed in your heart, Nikita, three doctor to soda.
One after the other, a black dot will be guarded from your heart.
If he's not able to dye your heart,
he should be smelling a bad accent for
me immediately. You're thinking about how you can protect yourself from this individual.
However, this individual, if you leave him something, you don't trust him because he's not a trustworthy individual.
And that's why the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he said, inequality
is an individual will always be on the path of his fragment. So you should be careful and be aware of the person that you prefer.
Be careful, and be aware of the person that you befriend. That's why there are a number of the divided, meaning people into three different categories.
The first of those categories being
the type of people the meaning of whom is like nourishment to the body. This is you mean on a daily basis to eat to drink, just as you need on a daily basis, need your nutrition
you need to meet this category of people, for you to keep yourself nourished. Who are these people.
These are the brothers My dear sisters
are the people of knowledge.
These are the people of guidance. These are the people of truth. These This is the good friend.
The more you need, the more you will be able to keep yourself nourished
the more the more you'll be able to keep yourself nourished. If you meet on a weekly basis, the dosage of leadership will be based on that
if you need on a daily basis, that's how much it will be.
If you meet on a monthly basis, then you can see where you stand. Because imagine eating once a month
imagine eating once a month
if you eat on a yearly basis, you won't be around similarly the heart to keep it nourished.
It's either you do it on a weekly basis or you do it on a monthly basis. But if you do it any more than that you'll have a dead heart just as you have a dead body
so that's why they they consider this section or these group of people meeting them on a regular they are they considered it like nourishment to the body
like nourishment to the soul just as you need those your food as we said you need yourself some you need yourself someone that can help you purify and you do you do need it and we talked about that earlier on as well.
It will it now we'll use a key
for the loss of Hello data speaking of his prophet, he said he recites upon them
also that he may purify.
So you need that purity. You need those people that can come and help you revive yourself. Have somebody to put yourself in check.
just as you have
a nutritionist that you wrote to help you set yourself a diet. Similarly go to
somebody to help you set yourself a diet
and say goodbye to somebody. No,
I'm not saying that.
What I'm trying to say is that just as you need
if you have a certain sickness, you need someone to solve it for you.
Similarly, you need someone that can guide you through your problems.
If you find the man law, he can put you in check and say, brother, he did such and such, and that's probably what's causing it.
He's history, he did such and such. And that's probably what's causing it.
And people, some people are gifted in that sense
is a calamity befalls you
the key link between that
and something you may have done
in your own life, that you may have not considered
Because the last panel data says whatever strikes you in this life, it is from that which you earned yourself.
So absolutely, and you have all over the city asked for guidance.
The private notes you see the example of as a habit,
you should go to the profits of the live setting them all the time, there'll be like a profit or loss or loss. What action for believe is belief is the best.
What action is the best in Islam are profitable also.
inertia is slowly but surely,
there are legal legislations of a lawsuit panel data have become numerous. So tell us one thing or profit or loss little lives that we can do.
This one thing that we can stick to
obrabotki Allah, give me an advice in the prophets of cinema then give a personalized set of advice for this particular individual.
So as I said, have somebody that you can go to, to the sea to seek that kind of advice, someone that you look up to someone, there are lots of panel data, deems clothes, and the signs of that are found in the signs of the Friends of a lawsuit handle data.
So when you befriend or when you intermingle, the first type, as we said, is meeting the people have knowledge.
And the second type
Just regular people, just other people.
And some of these people, intermingling with them is like
seeking to be cured. You don't seek to be cured, except that you're sick.
How does that manifest in real life?
If you have yourself a job, then you don't go around looking for a job.
If you have a car, then you don't go around purchasing cars.
If you have a problem, that's when you seek to solve it.
So these kind of people you only meet them
and that's most of mankind. You will meet them for the purpose of solving a problem.
Network seminar NMR used to say that you don't meet people except for two reasons. It sounds kind of selfish but it isn't.
Because I'm not being you yourself and not me myself. I'm missing myself and myself. I've seen I've seen
so so sometimes you got to be a little bit selfish.
See only people for two reasons
for you to either benefit them or seek benefit from them. Now the fact that you've benefited them no longer is it selfish anymore.
These this category of people you only need them when you really need them. If you have everything you need.
Then seclude yourself for the worship of Allah subhana wa diamond
or occupy your time. And that which benefits the deen of Allah Subhana Allah.
And that's why, you know, he did what he did the example he gave yesterday.
That's why he did what he did. That's why he was in such a dilemma, because he didn't want to meet people because he thought they were all from this category right here, which is just a cure. If you need an immediate
if you don't have a car you look for
if you don't have a house, you go and purchase if you don't have a job, you search around.
But if you have all that philosophy panel data as they do from amongst the people about who the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, Michael Milken and Menifee sarabi are often features are the one who to me,
is it rodinia
that whoever from amongst you
wakes up in the morning
and he is at rest in peace when it comes to family in his house.
And his body is cleansed of all sicknesses. It's pure.
And feature city we're under who to me as a day worth of food. Then this individual, the example of him is the one who's been given the dunya entirely.
As leaders need to go out and seek anymore now, because he's that everything that allows the petrodollar works for him to fulfill the ultimate goal and that is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala.
So if an individual as obvious and slow continues, to do nothing but meet people and waste his time, there's something that he needs to do to put himself in check.
Because Allah gave him
his family. Allah gave him as well.
A lot even what he needs to eat.
Now Allah Subhana Allah wants you to worship Allah Subhana Allah
and Allah didn't create a successful worship.
That's why we say that this category of people which is the vast majority of mankind, the example is the example of a cure you only seek it
when you're sick
but if you see here on a regular all the calamities that befall an individual that is constantly intermingling maker for you as well
go into emerges a gathering.
And there it is the Japan example.
Japan doesn't look nice.
His nose is too large.
That brother, he's got a beard trim
the guy's bald
or just simply
I don't like that guy.
They said even say
forbidden olalia or statements of such short is considered backbiting
when an individual is mentioned. So let's say you're sitting in the gathering
and you feel
that they is a bad person. He commit sins
and you're sitting with them.
I am sitting with
with Romo to make it easier
as he indeed is mentioned some random brother
Also that I can prove
To this firm over here, the American presidency, may Allah guidance
melaku stead path fast on this path of Allah subhanaw taala just that new statement that said, you're trying to look down
on another person
isn't enough for an individual to be evil as a prophet to lessen himself that he just looks down on somebody else.
So somebody else has mentioned me all you see is me Allah guidance. The other Monday said this is considered Riba because you're trying to say that I'm better than that.
And he's not that good.
How often do things like this occur extremely often, very often.
And that's why we go back to the example of individuals he did. He recognized that
he recognized that and when he did, he adopted
a path of seclusion. He used to meet people, but we remember, remember the example he gave, he had a very creative methodology of meeting people, so that he doesn't waste his time with wasteful conversations,
conversations that will come up with a judgement.
Now, Nissan has a lot
to cover the Day of Judgment.
And a person will be in grief for what he done.
And the third type of people, these type of people are deadly.
And that is people
is like a sickness.
Just as you realize that there is a plague somewhere,
you stay away from that society.
this is you recognize that there is some sort of sickness that is prevalent in this particular society, or in this particular city, you don't enter that city.
You don't go ahead sanctuary, you're afraid.
Similarly, the prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that
an individual will be on the path of his friend, you don't go into the wrong territory friends,
into the wrong territory reference.
Yo, yo volume one ad.
And on that day,
a transgressor will be biting his fingers.
related to Bravo, so
he will say that Oh, I wish that I would have taken
with the last prophet alayhi salatu. Salam, the path
he will say
that has SATA, SATA.
Oh how I am in severe grief.
And this Satan and people of that path.
They misled me and misguided me
from the remembrance of my Lord after it had come to me
all because he took up a friend that wasn't a good friend.
You see brothers and sisters,
worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala alone.
And then a few years later
you see the brother clean shaving
the house party
says to the boss is
just half naked.
All because they took up the wrong friends.
A friend can really mislead an individual.
That's why you have the example of that individual that went from the Muslim lands to Constantinople.
And when he did such,
he was a half of COVID now
he was a memorizer of the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. And he knew a little bit of the deen of Allah subhanaw taala.
I wouldn't say he was cocky, but he knew some as well.
And when he got there,
there was a woman,
a Christian woman.
And slowly but surely,
children lured him
And he was used amongst the strong fellow of the book of Allah subhana wa, Tada.
years went by, it was a young man.
And his time passed.
He finally accepted Christianity is his faith.
All because he befriended someone that he should have been defending
and it again from the Muslim lens to Constantinople.
Also that he can see this man
used to be half a Peterbilt. I used to be someone that memorize the Book of the last panel that I see that you know, Christian.
Do you remember something of the book of Allah so panel? What do you think the man said?
I asked him, What do you think the man said?
No, I don't remember anything.
all the one I uh
I forgot everything except one.
the Navy perhaps
the people that this believed
that they were believers.
Allah took the entire book of Allah subhanaw taala from this vessel that had become filthy the heart.
Heart is where the Quran states his idea of a low tide and who put it in that same ID.
There, the hearts are nothing vessels. So occupy them would
occupy them with something else besides the book of Allah.
The entire book of Allah He forgot.
It all started with a bad friend.
Before that, he used to go to court and
he used to be a pious young man who used to be
someone that memorize the Book of Allah subhanaw taala.
It all started with that.
So they are a category of people. The meeting them is like a sickness.
If you don't have strong immunity to the sickness, then avoid meeting these people. That's why for those that are trying to come back to a loss of animal data,
come back to a loss of Hannah Montana and develop immunity to disobedience of a loss of control data before you go back and call your friends.
And also people they try to come back to lots of animal data and they want to save everybody at the same time. You can't do that.
You got bad friends cut him off for a bit.
I know it's difficult, the friends for years but
because you can't handle it yet.
It's a sickness and you don't have what it takes to fight the sickness.
When you become strong, and you surely will, if you worship Allah subhana wa Tada.
At that point, start calling those people as well.
At that point, you should start calling those people otherwise they'll drag you in the boat with them.
Now, with that being said, hamdulillah we've completed our session on the four major sicknesses or four major poisons, deeds, actions to the heart.
And we will get into
the different things that help an individual replenish the heart, but before that is that I will take a short break
