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

Not only like me, surely Alpha sinner, when you say yeah Cha Medina, my god love for l'amour de la mejor de la, la, la la la la la la,

00:00:13--> 00:00:16

la shadow Allah Mohammed Abu

00:00:17--> 00:00:20

Salam, alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

Today we want to look at

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

a topic that is more or less like the concept,

00:00:30--> 00:00:48

the topic is the face and the GIS the face and the gaze, the face, fac e face and the gaze, G then he gives that to look at something.

00:00:49--> 00:01:28

Why are we talking about face what we need to bring out of this, the concept is taken from the guru of Quran chapter two verse one, five. And that is where Allah says, well, Eli mushrik, one Maghrib for a number one Lu for some module, Allah, to Allah belongs the east and the west. And so wherever you turn your face is the face of Allah. And surely Allah is sufficient for his creatures needs is all knowing. There's something very, very unique and mysterious about this verse.

00:01:29--> 00:02:22

Face and faces of faces, and fifth, the first faces mentioned there, refer to the human faces, all the highs, find out what to do how to wherever you turn your face, it's for human beings, them for thermowell, you Oba you find the face of Allah. So we have faces, and we have fifth faces of human being and the face of Almighty Allah. What is the connection between the two? What are the connections between the faces of human beings and the face of Allah? Then, as we look at these connections, what how come the face defines our personality? Have you observed that anytime you see a person, the first thing you see is the person's face. Or the first thing you look forward to is

00:02:22--> 00:02:33

the face of the person. If somebody shows you photograph, the first you look at is where the fifth it has a photograph, which was head is cut off, it doesn't look like a photograph anymore.

00:02:34--> 00:02:42

So how come is this face that defines our personality? Can we tell a person's character just by looking at the person's face?

00:02:44--> 00:03:06

What are the glances and gazes that attract evil into people's lives? And how can you feature agreement elder Fisher arrangement? How can it attract what is good? And how can you repel? What is evil? Or how can it attract? What is evil? Or how can we repair what is good?

00:03:07--> 00:04:04

In what ways have people been destroyed by what they face, in family. And in life? Generally, people face hardship people face things, people control things, all of this in the field. Sometimes it makes them and sometimes it destroys them. And ultimately, how do we see and see the face of all Michiana so that we can save our faces from humiliations from hurts and from Homs. This topic of today insha Allah is going to treat the Quranic philosophy of human face. Now it looks very simple and very vague, very odd, what we'll talk about in fish, what what has the face done to us? So we want us to follow it philosophically. And looking at it from the Almighty Allah has put everything

00:04:04--> 00:04:51

in place in the universe. If we can understand these concepts were explained very well granted, the tubers 115 that we just decided, it's good to open our eyes to see so many things in a different way. In fact, the way you used to see things will be different from what you are going to begin to see from now, if you can just follow this discussion, as much as you can only make an attempt or make an effort to explain certain things. And if you do not understand some part of it, that means my explanations have not been clear enough. But I want you to just follow me and see what and what we can learn from this philosophy of human fees. We service what I refer to as what Allah the face

00:04:51--> 00:04:51

of Allah.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Now talking about us as human beings, those of you who are looking at me now you can see me you can see my face

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

To appear is to make myself to be seen. If they say I should make an appearance, it means to be seen, so I'm less visible to myself than to other people. In other words, another person can see me from front from back from Rare consumer profile, simply by changing their observation points. By changing their viewpoint, they can see me all around. But I cannot see myself the way you can see me.

00:05:29--> 00:05:45

Because my eyes are set in this most elevated part of my body. And I deliberately decided to put the eyes where the head is, because the head is the upper most of the human body unless somebody is, is standing upside down.

00:05:47--> 00:06:30

Now the person standing upright or sitting up, the first part of the person's body that you see should be the face or the head as it is. And the front of the head is where you have the eyes, I can only look forward, if I want to look backwards, I have to turn around my head, or turn around my body in order to permit to see my back. The thing is, I can look downwards, I can look up was I can look sideways, no matter how much I look, I can also see my hands, I can see my legs because I can move them forward. But I cannot see my face, except with some device.

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

You can see my face better than I can see my

00:06:35--> 00:07:02

How can I make an attempt to see my face when I can look into a mirror. But when I look into a mirror, I only see the reflection of my face, I do not see my face in exactitude as it is the reflection of my face that I can see will be the feet image of my feet. In other words, in the middle, my right eye will become a left eye or my left eye will become my right. If I stand in front of the mirror.

00:07:03--> 00:07:56

At what point can I exactly see my face in blood and flesh as it is, maybe after I die, both are still alive, I can never see my face the way you can see my face. In other words, if I grasped myself as visible, and existed by looking at my own body, this grasp that this My look is refined and deepened under the gaze of other people, you are the ones that can see the true nature of my face. And you are the ones that can make the best meaning of my face. Because I am aware that you can see me that way I can see myself when I show myself when I make my appearance. My show myself and make an appearance is an act is an action. Every manifestation of my face to the eyes of another

00:07:56--> 00:08:29

person is a kind of free gift. That is my face is my own. It belongs to me. I'm not under any obligation to appear to anyone. But I can grab my appearance when I wish to and to whom I wish. My appearance before you is a gift freely given to you is an act of benevolence, I've decided to show my face to you, even though I cannot see my own face by myself. So I feel it is a gift for me to bring my face for you to see

00:08:31--> 00:08:40

what despite that one, we all have faces the same way I cannot see my own face. That's the way you cannot see your stool.

00:08:41--> 00:08:49

I mean, I can see your face better than I can see my own face. So I'm also looking at your faces now it's a gift

00:08:50--> 00:08:57

you're making an appearance is the gift you're coming forward or showing you appears to be seen is a gift.

00:08:58--> 00:09:16

That's by that one some faces are very rare to see surfaces do see them every time. Maybe the person is very far, or the person somewhere or somewhere. Some faces are very common that you see every time. Some faces are very special.

00:09:17--> 00:09:36

And some fish are very sweet. Some pieces are desired by everyone. And like I said some pieces are cheap. Some of these pieces are expensive to see. Some faces are Ordinary, ordinary faces. And some faces are again, kind of

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

game Yes.

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

Well

00:09:44--> 00:09:56

surface that can when you see them like that. But some are just ordinary. There's nothing special about CDF is some people have cases that are like that. I don't know what that means.

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

And some is

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

When you see them

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

is, when you see that this

00:10:06--> 00:10:29

nicely faces are not the same thing now, some faces are a delight to see you are happy when you see some people's faces in some cases that symbol symbolizes something spiritual symbolizes something that is good. Sometimes it symbolizes something that things that are not good. And when it comes to symbolic faces,

00:10:30--> 00:10:55

of taqwa, of piety, of goodness of calmness, of being affable, the Quran describes, some people say, see my own fee we do him mean after is to do that is that you see the marks of their faces, and the marks on their faces, resonates the traces of sujood.

00:10:56--> 00:11:08

You see some cases, you see the mark on some cases like that, see my home, you see the signature symbol, you see the signs on their faces, the signs that are so neat inside that radiate the light offsuit

00:11:09--> 00:11:28

some other faces don't see light on it. Some faces are dark, not just in terms of color, but in terms of what it exude, in terms of what comes out from it, in terms of what you see when you see their faces, some faces are scary. When you see them, you are scared, you are free.

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

Some faces are very beautiful. And some fishes faces they don't need to be a mask to add our movies.

00:11:38--> 00:11:46

Some faces are light, some are bright, some are lovely, some are attractive, and some pieces are repulsive.

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

This is the way and as meet most of these things to be. In other words, it's so mysterious how defense sometimes decides and determines almost everything about somebody.

00:11:59--> 00:12:38

In fact, some personalities are so great that we want them to grant us an interview want them to grant us their kids want to see them, it's a fever on their part to show themselves to us. And if the person enters into a conversation or extends their hand, we so appreciate it because this person's face is a very important face to us. And as some faces are very important, some faces are not very important to us. The appearance of a face is beginning something it's something that

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

when you show your face to someone is asking you are you are submitting yourself to that.

00:12:46--> 00:13:05

Yes, to show your face to a stranger is like you surrender yourself to that person, they to see is equivalent to take him when you see something is as if it has become yours is something you are processing. The way I'm looking at your face there. See if I'm taking your pieces from you.

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

In children's game of hide and seek, you remember how we used to play those days hide and seek, anybody that is seen is regarded as captured.

00:13:16--> 00:13:56

In Hide and Seek was I see you I see, I assume that I've caught you get caught you haven't caught you will be captured because I've seen you and see you is seeing your face. So each time each time I appear in public or you appear in public, you give others the kind of rights of your person, your being is being handed over to them by virtue of your appearance, just as easily via your name, or your occupation and your address and everything. When you show your face, you're also revealing your person and sometimes your own personality. Now,

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

the face just like the hand, orderly represent presents itself uncovered.

00:14:04--> 00:14:47

We don't cover a hand we don't cover our faces. And when you have to talk or communicate with somebody, you actually communicate with your thesis submitted to that person that way and then when somebody wants to rob you, you see the cover their faces wide, so that they will not give themselves to you. So that they will not reveal themselves to you and so that you will not capture them. So you see the people want to rock the cover their faces, you might have somebody talking to you and Tony, back to you. When somebody comes before you and the person wishes to speak to you, you would expect the person to face you and talk to you. But when the person turns the back to you and the person

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

says, Now let's begin to talk. There's something suspicious about the person's action. You don't feel comfortable that you are speaking to somebody and person comes back to you. Even if they go ahead I can hear you

00:15:01--> 00:15:52

while I'm listening, there's something about the fifth that it feels must be seen, and that person was turned the face to us. So, in everyday language of the things that we see, you hear somebody say something like a person faces adversity or somebody is facing adversity or somebody is facing a difficulty, have you heard of that, in everyday language, which is somebody is facing a difficulty, we say somebody is facing something squarely, also someone is confronting an enemy or someone is confronting a difficult task. Also somebody has an F from tree, you say you have an F from tree to talk to me, you show an F from tree to address me, F from tree is the derivative of the woods front,

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

and that is the forehead, or we say you approach something headlong,

00:15:58--> 00:16:08

or you face something squarely. All of this we see in everyday language means we're talking about your face, when you say, I need to see

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

more, I need to see you for something, what does it mean?

00:16:12--> 00:17:06

It means I require an a request to see your physical, I want you to be around I want you to be ability to see someone is to see the person's face. And if death and burial are so painful to us, they are painful to us because the person's face taken away forever from our site. This is why we feel so bad when somebody dies. That is one of the reasons why I feel so bad is would not have the opportunity of seeing the person's face ever again, or life. You can look at the person's photograph, you can watch the person on tip on video, but you cannot see the person's face again, in living face of that person is gone forever. So the face as we have it now is a manifestation of our

00:17:06--> 00:17:52

personality is a manifestation of each and every one of us. In fact, every human face means something every human face says something. And this silent declaration perceived by our eyes, confirms the very being of everybody. Meaning that in Africa, we are human beings, we are the master of our own expressions. And all sorts of deception can come from the fifth, we can it can be in form of mimicry, we can resolve our faces, we can reserve what we don't want people to see, by virtue of what we show in our face, the face will have so much meaning to the extent that you can use to deceive somebody you know, they say look sad, deceptive, we can use it to lie to somebody, we can

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

use it to as a means of expression and as a means of increasing the most important of what we will do remember how the permit is grabbed them from from privacy they have to fit

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

what the what

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

the person has to face one face to this person, one face to that in our everyday language, we talk about people with two faces, Babu says

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

the process means the person has the opportunity and the person has the power to defeat the face, you come to this with this face, we go to that with those people with another face. Now you see the face is getting more dangerous now.

00:18:34--> 00:19:26

Now, being that as it may, the first is a statement, the face is an endorsement, the face goes beyond the bodily structure of the person, the face goes beyond the statue of someone when a person is done or short. The face goes beyond the guest show of that person. The faith goes into the gaze of that person, the face is the window and the outreach to others is the means of me reaching out to you and you reaching out to me the face simultaneously is seen it is seeable, I can be seen. And because of that all mashallah in his greatness, as put all the five senses that Allah has given to us, at least majority of it his own is all on this face. Majority of the senses we have, you can

00:19:26--> 00:19:45

find them on our head. The sense of sight is from there. The set of hearing is right here. The sense of taste in the mouth, via the tongue. The sense of smell is in the nose is only the sense of touch that is outside the head.

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

And even with that there is this relationship, checking me out and checking you out that the head and the hands do. I don't think any human being was spent 24 hours without the hand needing to

00:20:00--> 00:20:27

touched the head, for one reason or the other, the hand is so close to the head that you can spend 24 hours without your hand going there. For one reason or the other, they always check one another because this head has seen, this is the ethic, the the whole thing about what they call physiognomy, there's this study they call physiognomy, that is looking at somebody and trying to read the person's character

00:20:28--> 00:20:36

before a child is born, because you cannot see the child feels we don't count the child as a human being yet,

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

is only when the child is born. And as soon as the child is born, the first phase we like to look at

00:20:44--> 00:20:44

is what

00:20:45--> 00:21:25

is the face. Allah knows why a normal birth in a normal bank is the head that comes out first, under normal circumstances, is the head that should come out first. No, that's not apart from that one. It's the doctors know what to do about it. But as soon as the face is coming, or the head is coming out and the face comes out, we most likely look at the face first. And in some cultures, you know what they look at the face, they want to see, we see that this child assembles, always that his child looks like. In other words, a whole big chunk of chromosome of hereditary features.

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

We look for it via the face, want to see who does his child.

00:21:32--> 00:22:12

in some quarters, they do some other calls, they don't care, a child can just come out. And they're not even bothered about whether the child assembles one person or not. But there are some mysterious disclosure of what the person will be later on in life, the future of the human being is already written in letters of flesh on the patient's face. And somehow, when a child is born, we look at the child, we look at the face, we look into the eyes, we want to see some things that sometimes we cannot really explain what we're looking for. But what to look at the face, we look at the eyes of the child. And as the child begins to grow, we keep looking at the child as we can see the destiny

00:22:12--> 00:22:45

from the child's face, we look at the shape of the face, we look at the size of the face, we look at the completion of the face, and we look at the expressions on the face of the child, we are looking forward to see whether we can find a smile, whether we can see what the child is trying to see whether we can see how the child responds whether we can see, every child recognizes that it's human beings around the child, we want the child to smile. And we want the child to look back at us when we look at a child I want to see if the eyes are functioning. And then how do we determine

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

the future of the child? Can you determine the character of a child by looking at the child's face?

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

Yes or No? Or yes or no?

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

Some are very deceptive. But some. When you look at some children,

00:23:09--> 00:23:57

something your mind will tell you that this child is stubborn, or this child is going to be stubborn, or the child's due to be harsh, or this child is going to be mined, or this child is going to be kind or this child is going to be wicked. I'm talking about a child I'm not talking about baby per se I'm talking about a child that is growing. One year old, three years old, three years old, four years old, on to adolescence. By looking at our children faces, you may have an idea though, it may not be accurate, but some faces do reflect a whole lot of things. If you look at some children's faces, you will be scared what our child to become and some other children faces are so affable,

00:23:57--> 00:24:17

that you look at the FISA you can you can imagine how great this child is going to be. But be that as it may, we may be right we may be wrong. Some children can be deceptive. Some children may have strong faces, but their characters are mild assumption that we have very soft faces, but the characters are wild.

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

We may be sure we may not be sure anything can happen, but whatever it is, when the person grows old, you get to see on the face of the old man or the old woman. What do you see on the face?

00:24:30--> 00:24:41

You see signs of numerous events, so many judiciary shooting that witness in life. Some of them become study, some of them become baggy.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

Support them. You see so many so much wrinkles all over the place. When you see such in the face of an old person. You can even imagine that yes, this person has seen a whole lot in their lives. Sometimes our faces reflect our ages. How old or how young we are

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

Sometimes it can be deceptive in case of some other people.

00:25:04--> 00:25:44

And Allah knows best about that now you are beginning to see that a whole lot of things are reaching on artists, a whole lot of things are on our faces. Some people can determine what is wrong with you when they look at your face, by virtue of the things that you reflect on your face, by virtue of the facial expression that you display, somebody can see that you smile, somebody can see that you frown, somebody can see that you are bewildered, somebody can see that you are scared, somebody can see that you show affection, somebody can see that you are angry, somebody can see that you are pleased, somebody can see can see, but does it always reflect what we truly feel? We truly are. Some

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

people are masters. Interesting, and confusing the people by twisting their faces to reflect what is not inside them.

00:25:54--> 00:26:00

And some people are very sincere and honest, whatever thing they feel you quickly see on their faces.

00:26:01--> 00:26:24

Now, how do we look at it, we service our identity. I'm going to ask you this question. Which of these will reflect my identity more the truth of my identity, my reflection, the reflection of my face in the mirror, or my shadow they can see on the floor. Which of them reflects my personal truth. So more?

00:26:27--> 00:26:59

Were the shadow also reflect a part of me because the shadow will always cast what I look like. But what about the mirror? The mirror seem to show a lot more about my identity more than my shadows will. But both of them reflect something about what's supposed to be my identity. How do you identify me, my identity is just like my name. But it's like when you put a name to my face is just like the name you give to me and my name and my face after a while the merge together.

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

Sometimes, the name you call a child will begin to look like the face of that child. Sometimes the face of a child will begin to reflect the name that you call the child in matters of identity to know means to be able to know my face, the service my name, because my face is the most expressive part of my person. My face is myself, it is ordinarily enough to distinguish me from any other person, I may share a name with one person, I may not share a face with somebody. No matter how much I resemble someone, even we are twins. If you look very deeply, there will be a difference in us that distinguish this person's face from this person's face, identity card, and passport will carry

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

my photograph.

00:27:50--> 00:28:43

So that you can be able to place my face with my name, the way my fingerprints are different from that of those of any other person. That's the way my face is different from that of my face is my identity. In some cultures, they use tribal marks for identity. In weather Africa, we have places where cerber match our sibling even now, as a matter of identification. They say this map or someone from real family mark or somebody from family of warriors, Mark from somebody, people of nobility, and so on and so forth. In fact, they have so much for those they refer to as cliffs. Now there's this thing about the fifth and the GIS. The face is the eyes of love, it is an organ, and the

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

biologists can make an anatomical and physiological study of bodies. The GIS is not an organ.

00:28:54--> 00:29:40

In fact, the face may be an object, but the gaze is not an object. It cannot be expressed in the definition, it is not an organ, body gaze is an act of an organ, the face or the eyes can be objectified, but the base cannot be objectified, it can only be looked at with subjectivity. What I mean by this, the gaze cannot be held, the face can be held. In fact, the gays seem to have some powers they give seem to have a life of its own. The gaze is a living thing. The gaze is so powerful,

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

much more powerful than the face itself.

00:29:46--> 00:29:55

If we look at the processes power of the gaze, or Marcela metallers Allah commands in the Quran, Allah says coolly limit meaning say to the believers,

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

who do mean Abbasali him that they should lower their gaze

00:30:02--> 00:30:53

I didn't say lower your face. And I say lower your GIS because the GIS is powerful. Why are fosu untethered issue guards their chastity, the valley girls love them because this is pure as for them in Alaska beyond my years now, Allah will give them the news of everything they do notice, notice very attentively, there is a connection between the gaze and other part of the body. Because the gaze can go wild, if it is not controlled, the gaze must be controlled, and Allah commands the believing servants of Allah says, Cooley Momineen said to the believers, this is a serious matter, say to those who believe in me that they must lower the ideals. Now if it is if it so happened, that

00:30:53--> 00:31:31

the person's gaze on intentionally or unintentionally falls upon something that's forbidding you to quickly look away from that because there's a listing that is called the sorting glass, the sodding glands, that is accidental geese. And Muslim recorded in so he the Jerry Rubin Abdullah Al majali. May Allah be pleased with him said I asked the Prophet of Allah, about the sodding glands, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam commanded me to turn my gaze away. In other words, harness Yogi's who don't you give, because your gaze can be very dangerous, it can be difficult to control.

00:31:33--> 00:31:37

Now, alongside with this, it is a 50 gains is like a wild animal.

00:31:39--> 00:31:48

If you don't harness it is going to go wild. The gains is what we must learn to team as believers.

00:31:49--> 00:32:04

Let me give you this example. The process move fully well, that he gives is very well and difficult. The process a lot as I say you must avoid certain situations and locations that can make you give to go wild.

00:32:06--> 00:32:17

And what are those Alesana said from one. So he from he edited Abu Saeed said that he must have Allah said is Jacqueline while you loose Allah to God,

00:32:18--> 00:32:24

beware of sitting in the streets, the way of sitting, he was one of them the way of

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

the Sahaba

00:32:28--> 00:32:56

were no alternative but to sit in the streets we talk with one another we just we you know, we relax in front of our houses or sometimes we meet in the street and we we just stay there relax. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them that in a by tune. Now if you insist that you must sit in the street or street outside or sit somewhere to just fall to God, you must give the streets its rights.

00:32:58--> 00:33:31

They say yeah Rasul Allah, what are the rest of the streets for Mr. Coppola and further said the rest of his streets as follows and must abide by them. Number one, go to the bus. You must know your dis control your give. If you must be in the street. Worker full other issue remove your hand from being on onto others will not do Salam and return greetings when people greet you. While I'm going to be my move and enjoy what is good. We're not you Animoca Appleby what is evil if you can abide by all of these that you can see in the street.

00:33:32--> 00:33:54

What was the proper time to teach them will serve to make them understand that the gaze can be very wild, unless you are ready, or you know how to learn to control your gaze. Avoid staying in places or locations where your gaze will go wild. What do you see in the street? What do you see? You see all sorts of things.

00:33:55--> 00:33:59

You see all sorts of things. You see all sorts of people you see also the faces

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

and these things are dangerous. They are very dangerous. Let me tell you this idea of Abu Qasim pelbagai he recorded Mama said policy

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

Fuu Lacombe Jana. guarantee me 16th. I will guarantee you paradise.

00:34:23--> 00:34:34

And he said jasola What are the six things the professor either had data for like the number one when in your vision talk? Don't lie.

00:34:35--> 00:34:43

When you talk, don't lie. When you talk, don't lie. Do you know what this talk we are talking about come from this head.

00:34:44--> 00:34:52

Number two way to follow whenever people put their trust in you don't be treated.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

A whole lot of betrayal come from this place, including the way you use in thinking and hurting everyone.

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

have betrayed somebody. Number three, why either why? Follow your belief whenever you promise somebody don't break your promise. Number four what God do

00:35:14--> 00:35:33

loyal gifts, control your gifts. And number five, walk us through idea can restrain your hands and overseas work for blue. Guard your private parts protect your private private but protect your chastity there's something that is very serious about this

00:35:34--> 00:36:29

looking in the hurts to evil, it is your gifts that constitute one of the evils of evil into the hearts of Nakba. Now look at this, there's this connection between the gifts and the private part. Those that provide them let me give you this this other connection you know what the Prophet said? Promise the Yama[???]a Shabaab young people, Minister Amin coolibah, any of you that is old enough and can afford to get married for later so watch, let him get married. Why, for him, no or God? Abbasali? Because this is what will make him to know why you give what are solid 5g, it also helped him to protect his private part, protect his modesty. Did you see that connection? Ravel mentioned

00:36:29--> 00:36:36

lowering the gills as an aid to people protecting their modesty. And

00:36:37--> 00:36:47

finally, if you saw me for inner hula wotja, I was not able to do this was able to get married, let him first because the first will be issued for him.

00:36:48--> 00:37:05

And as close as Pluto's are part of fasting is for a person to do his gifts, and protect his chastity and nap upon Allah Kabira let me tell you more, the power of biggie is the power of what we see. It sucks us up,

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

we become the slave of what you see.

00:37:10--> 00:37:39

What we have not seen may not really be a problem to you. But what you see becomes your slave, or you become a slave language of us numerous expressions that will show us the processes power of the gaze, if you say I have an eye on something, what does that mean? I have an eye or something. Or I have my eyes on you. What does that mean? It means it means my gifts has captured you.

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

And then what I can see as also captured me,

00:37:45--> 00:38:02

our gaze upon things is deeply ambiguous, so ambiguous and mysterious, to the extent that when you seek to master the object, the objects also seeking to master you tell you the example of a child has a toy. A child has a toy, and the child loves this toy a lot.

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

Who belongs to who

00:38:06--> 00:38:09

is it the child I belong to the toy or the toy belongs to the child.

00:38:11--> 00:38:17

What process is the child processes the toy or the toy process the child,

00:38:18--> 00:38:32

the child will think that is possessing the toy, when in reality is his toy that is possessing the child after that child will not sleep until he is holding on to his toy ladies. If we should tell you touch on the child, the child will cry.

00:38:33--> 00:38:46

And after a while the child becomes attached to that point. To the extent that you will never want to let it go. Incidentally, the child will soon become a sleeve of that toy, not the other way around.

00:38:48--> 00:38:59

And that's the same thing with most of the things we collect. Most of the things that we treasure, most of the things that we want to master, when we begin to want to master something,

00:39:00--> 00:39:12

we gaze at it. Once you continue to look at that thing, it develops a light over you want to look at, over and over. We soon possess you

00:39:13--> 00:39:22

because you want to possess it and the process, it ends up possessing you. People will look at women too much. For example.

00:39:23--> 00:39:30

They think they want to possess the woman by casting their gaze or their glands on the woman.

00:39:32--> 00:39:35

After a while they become a sleeve of that man.

00:39:36--> 00:39:58

The same way around. When a woman wants to possess a man, I want that man I must get that man, you end up becoming a sleeve of that man. Because in order for you not to lose what we're glanced at what we're against at the gates will soak you in and will enslave you by virtue of what to look at and then you become your slave or that you want to see the return

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Let me ask you, we all have this toy in our house,

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

the phone

00:40:07--> 00:40:12

you have in your pocket, you go to the market to buy the phone.

00:40:13--> 00:40:22

You of course want to process the phone after a while the phone processes you some people will even go to the toilet with their phones.

00:40:23--> 00:40:37

You become a slave of that phone. If the phone is missing from you for five minutes you are no longer yourself. You begin to wonder worse before you even see somebody crying when their phones are lost

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

and some people will be so sad so more rules throughout the DC what happens here I lost my phone.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

So what you told me for

00:40:49--> 00:41:39

a nap Akbar Kabira Allah Papa Do you see the the power of the gifts, you want to possess it and processes. If you want to free yourself, lower your death. In fact, don't destroy your gifts, protect your gifts. That's what they promised. It was an unsettled and unsafe, not protecting the gills as lead human beings to so many countless evil, so much immoral acts because you cannot do their gifts. It has led to so much disgrace, it has led to so much humiliation, it has led to so much hopelessness does lead to so much inclination towards evil lifestyles. And sometimes it has led to death, spiritually spiritual death, a man that looks lustfully at women, or a man who looks lost

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

fully or the house, for example,

00:41:42--> 00:41:50

after a while, no matter how low the server is to Him, you will begin to be a slave

00:41:51--> 00:41:53

by is looking at her.

00:41:55--> 00:42:31

By looking at her gradually, he soon become a slave of his passion will have acquaintances in your place of work colleagues you work with. If you don't lower your gaze, you continue to look at somebody over and over and over after a while, from acquaintance it becomes something else. And then what you see will begin to gradually drag you into itself. You think you are attracting the thing, but the thing is one attracting you. After a while it will remove from you the clear the purity and the innocence of your soul.

00:42:32--> 00:43:18

And that's why the cross is delicate as Calico This is the only thing that can purify water to purify you is for you to lower your views and look away from whatever thing that's even happened that is conducive towards evil. Now when people don't do this, when they don't know what they are gives you see everything that has happened now. So men have become slaves of women. Some men have adopted the lifestyle of falling women up and down. Why? Because he cannot always guess because can always give it becomes addictive and is the evil part of it. He becomes addicted to not lowering his gifts. And the more you continue to do that, the more becomes a sleeve of flesh, the more it becomes

00:43:18--> 00:43:34

a slave of passion, the more you become a slave of lust, the more he becomes a slave of what he sees. If he sees you want to attain when he attains you want to achieve when achieves you want to commit when you commit to die that

00:43:36--> 00:43:44

it is said from one Hadith and mussels, salamis, Amaechi the look is like one of the rules of shaitan.

00:43:46--> 00:44:05

When people cast the against loss fully a shot an arrow from Shaytaan will be will be struck early to hit them or when it hit them. It kills them spiritually die spiritually. Allahu Akbar Kabir Allah Akbar Kabira. And you know what Allah said, Allah says, Allah, Messiah.

00:44:07--> 00:44:20

I know I know the front of your eyes, and I know what two hearts conceal. I know Allah says that I know. I know the fraud your eyes commit, what are the flaws of the eyes?

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

Give

00:44:23--> 00:44:44

looking lustfully or looking in directions that are not halau allow or halaal for somebody. Now look at what Allah Allah Allah wa sallam said I want you to understand this very well are you ready? Now listen to this hadith Prophet said he wants so he is recorded Abu mela refused him said Rasul Allah says, Allah the zoo minute Xena.

00:44:45--> 00:44:58

The son of Adam has a share of Xena that is decreed for him. Add raka garlic at llama holla there's no doubt about it. You will commit one of these enough for him.

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

buzzin Allah

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

name under the designer of the eyes is in the look. The keys were talking about was in a listen and not designer told is the speech was my name

00:45:13--> 00:45:52

and Zillow or the IRS is what we're here was in a year then Alberto Chu and Xena are behind is what to touch when you see when you hear when you look you want to touch was in originais knee and Hupo and Xena are the two legs is for you to walk to the place where you are going to capture the object of your gifts. And they were NASA termina water study the soul wishes and desires based on what you see while further you saw dequeued Balika or you can do and then the private part will either confirm it or denied.

00:45:53--> 00:46:20

All of these things have to do with the power and the danger of GIS the danger of what you see what you hear what to look at or what to touch from the girls. From the girl the next thing in your heart or any other is for him to want to reach what you can see. Even when you look at your eyes and looks beautiful you want to get there. And when you see something that is beautiful you want to get it

00:46:22--> 00:46:29

and you don't want to grant us is in order for us not not to over trust ourselves. Robots the grasses that Lily

00:46:31--> 00:46:54

or Muhammad Mohammed said to the believing women to young men absorbed in that they should lower their gaze is to wear faster food that when additional also protect their private path. When I dinner, Xena Tahuna Illa Mahara Mina, and they should not reveal their own elements and their beauty except what naturally are normal issues from day

00:46:56--> 00:47:06

one will allow go to no expense or to that extent have explained this in detail. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is aware of the weakness of the human mind.

00:47:07--> 00:47:12

And let me tell you something that Professor again, Professor Jackson would

00:47:13--> 00:47:34

be very careful about entering upon women. Be very careful each morning, don't just enter upon a woman and somebody knows the yellow school Allah. What about the inlaw? What about the mill in Lord Buddha said while a ham will mode it will that in law himself is dead.

00:47:36--> 00:47:37

That mill in law is dead.

00:47:39--> 00:48:04

This limit to which a woman she will expose herself because the glances and he gives us a very powerful because we could not follow these principles. That's why you see cases of incest, sleeping with one another. Why? Because they have passed their boundaries. The gaze is much more powerful, where the gaze as reciting extent people begin to behave like animals.

00:48:06--> 00:48:15

When he gave a will breed not controlled, people will go off their boundaries and they begin to do things that are unimaginable.

00:48:16--> 00:48:39

Now there's something more I want you to learn about these gifts, the power of the gifts, it goes beyond all of these things that people commit to is which is the exhale we call the evil AI. Allahu Akbar the evil AI. The evil eye does the Baleful gaze, the evil eye the one that sees you and robs you of some good things in you.

00:48:40--> 00:48:49

Some cases you don't we are talking about you controlling your gifts from reaching somebody else. Then protect yourself from the gifts of some other people.

00:48:50--> 00:49:05

Some people will look at you and they are cases have to do with evil. Now this is the evil AI. Every person is susceptible to this. Every person has the propensity of being harmed and affected by into it.

00:49:06--> 00:49:25

Some people don't by looking at you like this. A lot of inputting would begin to happen to you and you can't imagine. You can imagine to what extent you will continue to be harmed so long as you make yourself or you brings yourself within the view of people who have evil eyes. If you allow them to gaze at you a lot of bad things will happen.

00:49:27--> 00:49:30

And the person is said evil eye is re

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

people have evil with their gazes. This case is more powerful than what you are thinking about.

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

And those who are going to harm you in some begins when they see you the harm you that's why I said earlier on the way you present yourself. When you show yourself to somebody you are submitting yourself to that person. You are committing your life to that person. You are putting everything about you in the hands of that person was it

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

So Casio keys, that's all. And that's why people do evil and sorceress, they only need your photograph.

00:50:06--> 00:50:12

Once they get access to your photograph, there is no amount of evil they cannot do to you because your fist is involved.

00:50:13--> 00:50:19

If you had you know defeat, they cannot do anything to you. They can harm you. Nobody harms a faceless body.

00:50:20--> 00:50:29

Allahu Akbar Kabira. Allah, what is going on here. And then you see things will suddenly begin to happen. You don't know why it happened to know how it happened.

00:50:31--> 00:50:34

Now let's move on. Now let's leave that as it is

00:50:35--> 00:50:42

hoping and believing our whole understood that you must protect yourself or your family, from the clients and the diseases of evil.

00:50:43--> 00:50:49

How do you enrich your gifts? How do you enrich your face when you see something?

00:50:50--> 00:51:03

Sometimes a sick person tries to read in the doctor's speech, how serious is conditioned is sometimes when the patient is sick, and the doctor is addressing because you want to look at the face of the doctor.

00:51:05--> 00:51:19

When people come to greet you, and you are in, you want to look at their faces for them to for you to have an idea how serious your sickness is. When the doctor comes around a smile, say yes, you'll be alright. You'll be alright. That's very reassuring, isn't it?

00:51:20--> 00:51:34

Then the doctor comes in and tosses back to you and say, well, inshallah you'll be alright. What does that mean? Dr. Stone says back doesn't want to see your face. I don't want to sit with it. I say just relax with your

00:51:35--> 00:51:39

nose. Please remember to give her the injections you do right now.

00:51:40--> 00:51:42

Are you going to think you really get when?

00:51:43--> 00:51:46

Or when the doctor looks at your face and begins to cry?

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

Madame

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

All right.

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

All right, and the doctor is crying. This

00:51:58--> 00:52:06

is ordinary headache you had and the doctor is crying, telling you you're right. I don't see you really believe that you'll be alright.

00:52:08--> 00:52:16

In other words, what we see on the face affects the way we feel about the words that come from that with

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

your face affects people more than you can ever imagine.

00:52:23--> 00:52:28

Your face is the interpreter of what to say to the people.

00:52:29--> 00:52:32

Your face is expected to be loving

00:52:33--> 00:52:44

is expected to be faithful. Your face is expected to brighten up the delight of other people. Everything about the light in your house come from your face.

00:52:46--> 00:52:56

The power of smile is dead. You progress a lot of Salon was known to smile a lot and advised that he would his smile is sadhaka.

00:52:58--> 00:53:25

Let your face be bright because he wanted to emphasize the importance of the human face. The dignity of the human face, respect from the human face the power from a human face. When you smile everything around you with smile. You can change a patient's mood. By virtue of your face. You can change a person's life by virtue of your face, you can change a person's destiny by virtue of your face.

00:53:26--> 00:53:31

If we have a baby, and we do smile at that baby, that baby will go normally.

00:53:32--> 00:53:40

We smile at the baby and the baby smiles back at us is a form of reassurance. This will grow to become a normal human being.

00:53:41--> 00:53:49

The power of the face of what we see it can change your own life to your face. The way you carry your face can change your destiny.

00:53:51--> 00:54:09

You can attract blessings to your life. You can attract favours to your life. He can bring peace to your life. He can attract people into your life. It can sustain people around you. It can also repel people from you. If your face is turned upside down with a frown

00:54:10--> 00:54:31

and some looks that are not pleasant. It can take it away from you. People want to favor you the order to their tables. People want to bless you the whole of their blessings can go to quote close with of course the way they see you with a blessing that brought for you they will return you a gift back to their pocket because of the look of your face.

00:54:33--> 00:54:40

And many of you do not know many people do not know that it is because of their faces that they found yourself where they found themselves now

00:54:41--> 00:54:45

you see people hate you see people don't like you haven't you looked into the mirror.

00:54:46--> 00:54:48

Even you you might know like you said

00:54:50--> 00:54:58

look into the mirror. Or you see whether anybody who like the face ladies when everything is upside down you like that. So

00:55:01--> 00:55:03

The first thing to eat cockroach

00:55:05--> 00:55:07

is your face almost look like that. Okay most

00:55:09--> 00:55:17

people run away from you. Those of you carry pieces like you supply on on key lines. Nobody will come close to you.

00:55:19--> 00:55:23

Nobody wants to benefit you. You carry a fish or seafood somebody died.

00:55:24--> 00:55:43

Nobody would bring happy of good news towards you. By shocking watching to fan he was surely sad by Shasha to wait for your face to be active. for phase two, be approachable are tier two Tanya is second gift allow you to somebody after he has made it to be believer.

00:55:44--> 00:55:52

The greatest gift for you to be built by the second gift is for you to have passion and watch faces that are approachable.

00:55:54--> 00:56:01

And just by some discussion or controversial or rearrangement of our thesis, we can exude so much of emotion.

00:56:03--> 00:56:13

And a lot of you will fall back on Wi Fi at home and did not pay attention to what goes on in on their faces good to be a very big problem.

00:56:15--> 00:56:29

And I want people to take note of this and I want you to hold it in your hand as much as possible. Most of the problems you see now is because we open the web not understand what the offenses are due to their marriages.

00:56:30--> 00:56:31

In my idea

00:56:33--> 00:56:34

what to expect to me

00:56:36--> 00:56:38

man comes in a miss the wife from

00:56:41--> 00:56:42

Santa Monica

00:56:45--> 00:56:55

says the author will not be asked me Is there any problem? So no problem. Is there anything wrong? No not is wrong. Are you okay? I'm okay now.

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

The way the phone

00:57:00--> 00:57:02

is no that just my face is my happy face.

00:57:04--> 00:57:10

Excuse me. Your happy face look like that. Like Makita you put a line into the mouth.

00:57:12--> 00:57:12

And

00:57:13--> 00:57:19

then you do the same with your husband your friends you do the same to your English and you say your English don't like you I will be like you.

00:57:21--> 00:57:23

You want to look serious every time

00:57:24--> 00:57:35

nobody will let you no matter what you keep inside your heart. If your face doesn't reflect it, you are a dark person nobody will come close to you. They will just abandon you what's your life.

00:57:36--> 00:57:45

People are in public offices. You work as a receptionist. You stay at the counter to our tell them why you cannot say you lose our job.

00:57:47--> 00:57:48

As people no come near you

00:57:50--> 00:58:02

because there is the power in the eyes. There is power in the loop. They see power in the way we look. There is the gaze at the appearance they go hand in hand. If your everyday appearance is wrong.

00:58:03--> 00:58:10

Then your gifts will not make anybody to come near to near you. More amount of makeup can substitute is mine.

00:58:12--> 00:58:21

In fact, the person looks beautiful. When they learn how to smile. I want you to learn it some people's faces naturally naturally. They look like musk.

00:58:22--> 00:58:39

Musk made of iron. It doesn't shift. He doesn't move. He doesn't reflect any emotion. You don't you don't know whether they are happy or they're sad or they're worried or they're troubled or they are pleased or they're dismissed. You don't know what the emotions are. The faces are frozen.

00:58:41--> 00:58:54

You will say something that is funny. You cannot laugh. You say something that says Justin he cannot smile. We say something that is sad. He cannot cry. He said something that should get somebody angry he cannot frown a low what kind of life is this

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

gonna

00:59:00--> 00:59:17

00:59:28--> 00:59:34

go hide it do keep it there bezel it and those core lights.

00:59:35--> 00:59:45

Know the appropriate smile for proper occasion. I know and I'm saying this authoritatively the most women get into trouble with their husband because they don't know how to smile.

00:59:46--> 00:59:58

When something good happens smile now. If possible love was the word there's no it's not haram to love. When something nice something pleasant happen is excessive one that we have been warned against

01:00:01--> 01:00:26

Now how do you take your gifts, brother Sisters in Islam in everyday life concern for bodily image anticipate and determine the gaze which others would direct towards us. The way you appear will determine the way people will address you. The way you dress is the way you will be addressed. If you call with Brad Pitt who are dressed with brightness,

01:00:27--> 01:00:31

if you see your face as a happy face, they will not bring sadness to you or less business aside.

01:00:33--> 01:00:42

When somebody see you smile they want to come through if they're looking for directions you I don't want to ask if they're looking for something you want to ask if they want to give something to someone

01:00:43--> 01:00:51

is the person whose face approachable that you will come to. And this face this head you see he's sitting down on a whole lot of the other aspect of our body.

01:00:54--> 01:00:55

In other words dress will

01:00:56--> 01:01:05

appear well and do what is nice with your body. I don't know about you but I don't think it's a nice idea for a woman to look like a man.

01:01:06--> 01:01:13

You know what I mean by that? A little TT vision will beautify your ps4 you

01:01:15--> 01:01:23

know that what I mean by TT vision. The vision is like really low vision is like milk is like midship it's like he's like make over.

01:01:24--> 01:01:35

I don't think such a nice idea for a woman's face to be so bland. Looking so plain and ordinary details of the man is my own opinion. At least if you're not wearing niqab

01:01:36--> 01:01:41

if your face is open this display a very good and clean

01:01:42--> 01:01:53

I'm not saying that you must wear makeup. I'm saying the lecture is Be clean. How clean your face be take care of your face. Use nice cream is no hierarchy

01:01:54--> 01:01:59

system is anybody listen to what I'm saying? It is not

01:02:03--> 01:02:10

when you say why am I laughing? I'm laughing because I've seen occasions where a particular lady has so much email

01:02:12--> 01:02:16

that she used something that is not too different from engine oil to robotic.

01:02:17--> 01:02:18

You know I'm just exaggerating.

01:02:21--> 01:02:39

And everything is the shine shine like that. What kind of pieces that says anything can go hello so you should not use petroleum jelly. There's nothing wrong with it right? You can use whichever one if you let us use vegetable oil if you like if you like use palm oil if you like what is it good for peace.

01:02:40--> 01:02:59

Look brothers, it is not a sign of email, email opinion for you to buy a nice cream for your wife cream that will make her face to be nice and smooth. You know what the proper set Professor the best of women is the one one of the coils of the best of oil is where you look at her. You are pleased looking at her.

01:03:00--> 01:03:07

Did you hear that? When you look at her, you are pleased looking at her. Now what of the one that only use a rural vegetable

01:03:09--> 01:03:25

or the one that doesn't know that she's using good soup all of this is our knowledge these are knowledge that Allah has given to Bonnie how to manufacture nice soup, how to manufacture nice cream, how to manufacture nicely you can rub on your face and your face will be very nice.

01:03:27--> 01:03:54

In my opinion, this is part and parcel of Islam. And the person was ensured that it would kill their thesis either as a man or as a woman because when you show your self is the way you wish to be seen, be defy your face. But within the limits of Islam, there's the beatific vision for endo and so it's crucial for outdoor when you are inside your house with your whole band. There's hardly any limit to which you can rub your face woman

01:03:55--> 01:04:05

rock your face powder to this one rock this one put one corner here crayon used to paint your lips your eyelids look like a wooden toy it doesn't matter

01:04:19--> 01:04:26

Is not haram for you to do that inside your house. I will not give you any cop fine. Go ahead.

01:04:27--> 01:04:28

We'll see.

01:04:29--> 01:04:37

But feel good with your face. feel really good with your face. Not all the faces are beautiful. Like

01:04:39--> 01:04:53

this was the MacGuffin, no. But no matter how Forgive me for saying this. No matter how ugly Your face looks you got to take care of it. You can say modified because he wrote powder and all pimples will disappear. By ice cream.

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

They'll make your body to look smooth and clean. This is very

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

As far as I'm concerned, this opinion our gazes as I guess meet appearances are manifested to other people that are looking at us.

01:05:10--> 01:05:14

And we are obliged to do that even anybody, even anybody,

01:05:16--> 01:05:18

even in the body, you know what Allah says about abolition

01:05:20--> 01:05:21

of solid facts

01:05:22--> 01:05:26

or get up to pray, wash your basis.

01:05:27--> 01:05:34

I don't know why Allah started with the fifth worship is faster to do what idea Colin Moravec.

01:05:38--> 01:06:09

Other aspect of our visual after you've watched that piece, it is then that you go for solid and then you put that piece on the ground. This is the best position in solid. In fact, because Allah Allah wa sallam said, the best person you can build solid and you speak to Allah and Allah listens to you, most is where your face is on the ground, that part of your body that is most precious to you, if you can put it down to worship Almighty Allah, anything you like, Allah then you will listen to you.

01:06:11--> 01:06:18

Now you see the face is not a joke. The face is very important, the face must be taken care of.

01:06:19--> 01:06:20

Now let us go

01:06:22--> 01:07:00

to one aspect, the face of Allah, the word you asked him the attributes of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Allah, doing a worship call on no apart from Allah, Lila in love, there's no one bought him Kulu Shane Harley Quinn everything will be destroyed in watch, except the feasts of Allah. Lowly. He's is the decision. Why need to reach out to him everyone should return greater than 28 but it everything will be destroyed except defeats of Allah.

01:07:01--> 01:07:19

And the Quran says greater than 55 verses two and six to seven khulumani la are find everything on how to come to an end who finish whatever call what you Rebecca will remain is the Face of your Lord Dooley Jallianwala Crump the one the law of full of Majesty and all

01:07:20--> 01:07:32

in other words, coolish in Harlequin Illa watch, everything will be destroyed except Allah SFist means that he's only a glad that will remain in order was the face of Allah refer to Allah Himself?

01:07:33--> 01:07:51

Now what can you connect with human face and the fact that Almighty Allah says that the greater thing than fee in Paradise is seen is 1/5 Illa of bigger Illa where the believers will be looking at the face of Allah.

01:07:53--> 01:07:55

This is very symbolic.

01:07:56--> 01:08:13

The symbol is that Allah reserves are seeds, till we get to Paradise, and he will not introduce himself to us, a new appear towards us laughing and smiling with the practice of Allah, that is not like any face we have ever seen before.

01:08:14--> 01:08:38

Move on that then. The verse will set at the beginning as the conceptual framework for this discussion. Know that the verse is talking about two pieces. The currencies Willie Lyle Mushrik well model to Allah below the east and the west, for a number to one knew anyway, you turn your face, for some of what you Allah, you will find the face of Allah.

01:08:39--> 01:08:55

Allah combined our own face and his whole face in one single verse. For this singular reason, that when we eventually get to Paradise, we are going to see his face. The practice on our faces will be small compared to what it would be, we virtually see the face upon

01:08:56--> 01:09:00

are we not supposed to begin to seek the face of Allah?

01:09:01--> 01:09:10

How would you seek the face of Allah? The Quran says life Sally Biafra, it is not enough as righteousness, to wonder would

01:09:11--> 01:09:23

require you to tell your faces toward the east and the west. Granted, one lesson was to go to Allah below the east and with this verse, another verse entirely now says, It is not enough

01:09:25--> 01:09:28

righteousness for you to face the east or the west.

01:09:29--> 01:09:45

Without kinnaly been both through righteousness is man. Man a biller is those person who believe in all major enough while your mill add of judgment. If you want to see the face of Allah, you have to act this righteousness.

01:09:46--> 01:09:50

Is not by is not is not is not free of charge.

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

That's why I was telling you in the beginning that some faces you see it everyday. So pieces are very rare. Surfaces are very cheap. sofas are very expensive.

01:10:01--> 01:10:03

So pieces are very precious.

01:10:04--> 01:10:28

The face of Allah is precious. You cannot just get it free of charge. You must work for it. You must strive for it. In places where you are the best when somebody is free, Oh Allah, Allah. Allah me Oh Allah, I then you go there and you make yourself an answer to that essence prayer. You are sound Allah.

01:10:30--> 01:11:00

They give charity, Allah Hopi, even though they love this and they want to give up, they give them this cleaner, they give to the way a team and until the orphan was under the captive, where they are giving these things out. What do they say they say?

01:11:02--> 01:11:03

In law,

01:11:04--> 01:11:11

we are giving you all of these things because we are looking for the face of Allah. Because we see the face of Allah land.

01:11:14--> 01:11:27

We don't want any time or gratitude from you. We want Allah to take off because as I said, What can I say you can mash. I'm going to thank you for all of this as you have been. Allah Akbar, Kabira and alpha Kabira.

01:11:29--> 01:11:32

We are doing all of these things because we are seeking the fields of Allah.

01:11:33--> 01:11:34

If you want to get the field of ALLAH,

01:11:36--> 01:11:38

seek the face of the humans around you.

01:11:39--> 01:11:44

Seek the fields of Allah in the face of an orphan that is crying for help.

01:11:46--> 01:12:09

Seek the fields of Allah in the face of the poor person that is needed, that is hungry, to cut a face of indigenous. Look at the faces of those who want somebody to make them happy. Look at the faces of those who are in so look at those who are developing. So people who are going to try to get a face or people who are going through some tribulations in their lives. Look at a piece of

01:12:10--> 01:12:16

water and turn that piece around from soul to happiness, from sadness, to joy.

01:12:17--> 01:12:35

Seek defeat of Allah in making somebody else to smile, in letting everything you do constitute a smile in the life of somebody else. Let it be that your life is going to be alive. That makes other people's countenances to be blue you.

01:12:37--> 01:12:42

Never you do anything. They'll bring tears of sadness from the eye on anyone.

01:12:43--> 01:12:52

If you want to train yourself to indulge judgment laughing, you must make sure you make somebody else's face to laugh.

01:12:53--> 01:12:54

It is simple.

01:12:56--> 01:12:57

It's not difficult to understand.

01:12:59--> 01:13:04

If you cannot bring a smile to the face of somebody else, don't express my formula.

01:13:05--> 01:13:14

To expect to smile when you cannot use is not possible is not is not possible. You cannot quench your thirst with somebody SSTs

01:13:16--> 01:13:17

and expect to live a happy life.

01:13:18--> 01:13:21

If we bring it to the family now for a while.

01:13:22--> 01:13:31

If you are the man whose habit is making your wife to shed tears of sadness, and so this is simply a go to meet Allah.

01:13:34--> 01:13:43

woman who doesn't have anything good to contribute to level two on my SF soul and sadness. This would have to meet with Allah in

01:13:44--> 01:13:49

the face of somebody else is the mirror through which you see Allah.

01:13:50--> 01:13:55

If you are going to deal with your husband, do it for the sake of Allah.

01:13:57--> 01:14:01

Every tribulation, every problem you go through today, from now on,

01:14:03--> 01:14:26

go 360 views of Allah. If you want to do to please human beings, you'll be disappointed. Everything that you do from now on, even we are going to smile at somebody. If somebody insults you or you smile back, somebody curses you or you pray back, somebody abuses you or you praise the person instead. You're watching Allah because of the fields of Allah, Allah will never let you down.

01:14:27--> 01:14:30

Allah will never support you in a minute.

01:14:31--> 01:14:33

and Lucky you. If you have your husband or your wife that has accepted you that as a commodity that is enjoying your your your behavior for the sake of it

01:15:01--> 01:15:38
