As many of you can see, I'm in the darkness, there's a light shining on me, you automatically think that I'm alone.

00:00:23--> 00:01:09

There are times in our life where we need to be alone on purpose. But for what purpose, for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada to have undivided attention. The one that is mindful of Allah puts themselves in situations to be mindful of Allah. When we realize in Islam, there is something called a calf, where the prophets of Allah and they will send them would make a spiritual retreat individually by himself in the mosque for 10 days, to make sure that he is fulfilling the worship of Allah in different manifestations, saying his name, repeating his name, reading the Koran praying and just having to double and difficult to ponder and think that is what I recommend for you all.

00:01:09--> 00:01:42

And that is one of the characteristics of the mindful people, that they have what is known as a tool, a bad tool in the chapter one Muslim men were lots of data with data addresses the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him when he received the revelation of Ecuador. And he rushed hurriedly to his wife Khadija, his best friend, and he laid in her lap told her some lumizyme Maloney, Allah, Allah revealed the chapter. Yeah, you heard muslimeen Oh, the one covered in garments stand at a portion of the night. In later verses, he says,

but will it is having undivided attention and seclusion to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now even Okay, in some kind of law here, he mentions that this Tibet will lay a coma in lavish shaking. And in Qatar, well, in will it dissolve. He said it doesn't happen except with two things an invisible will it is on separation, and connection, separation, and connection. What is the separation? Even OPM says who will

be here and have all the nuts it is the separation of the heart from the things in which it desires for other than a law

00:02:38--> 00:03:24

to separate oneself from that too fast from their phone, if need be, to turn your phone off to where you will not have any distractions, to be in a situation to where you are alone. And you start to think about life, you start to think about the good that you have been given. And the bad that you have done, the things that you have done that have not been been beneficial for you in this life. And ultimately in the next one it is on and it is connecting with Allah. So when you are alone, do not think about frivolous things that don't benefit you think about those things, but always connected to an attribute of Allah, that further engages your connection and concentration and

00:03:24--> 00:03:56

relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the manners of the mindful person is that they voluntarily seclude themselves to remember the one that created them. And that is a characteristic of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And with that, we see the person that becomes mindful and what tucky when that knows and thinks about life, for what it really is worth. May Allah bless you all a cinematic camera tool, I better get it. Thank you
