00:00:13--> 00:00:20

Alhamdulillah we think Allah subhanho wa Taala for this opportunity to come together with their brothers and sisters here at Islam Bradford

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

and I was joking with the brothers earlier today. Because the first tour I came when I came to the area here in Bradford and I was my colleagues in the UAE, the non Muslims who was working within the school they're asking where are you going? And then I couldn't remember the name but I remember I called Brad Stan. I could remember that the real name was it wasn't called so I told him brother Stan, you know, and they said, it's not human that is known as red as Dan Mashallah. But honestly, Mashallah one of the things about the UK. And it's beautiful, how the Muslims are together in one area is nice for the community, for the kids, for the families, and to be in an environment around a

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

bunch of Muslims as very good. Mashallah.

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

Tonight inshallah, we'll be talking about the purification of the soul.

00:01:06--> 00:01:30

And this is a topic that we need to go in detail in a topic that we need and that's why tomorrow Shall we have induced very the one day seminar about the same topic in detail, but tonight, we want to talk a little bit about the heart itself, talking about the soul. And this is something fun nowadays, when we see in the dunya around us, people who are focusing on the issue of their body

00:01:31--> 00:01:45

when she sees other brothers here, Mashallah we're working out are the ones who have the one pack don't really care. But you find a lot of people now Mashallah who are the working out taking care of themselves, pay attention to what they eat?

00:01:47--> 00:02:03

healthy, this healthy that? Because they realize if you don't nourish the body in the proper way, you don't take care of the body, what happens? It breaks down, you go through a whole bunch of problems, whole bunch of difficulties. So they start taking care of the body. But the human being is created from what

00:02:06--> 00:02:32

water and clay after that, what is it what is it what is our what are our bodies made of? body and what else so and so? So before we know what what to do about the body now what do we do about the soul? This is a problem that people don't focus on the soul. And that's why so many people around the world today have all kinds of emotional distress, emotional diseases, looking for the Cure, but they don't know how to find it.

00:02:34--> 00:02:40

Allah subhana wa tada focused on the importance of purifying the soul in the Quran.

00:02:41--> 00:02:49

And two verses that all of us no showing it if there's only one outcome, or two outcomes.

00:02:51--> 00:02:59

Allah subhanaw taala told us what about the neffs and the teskey of the neffs purifying the soul and solid chimps?

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

Allah told us got f Lucha

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

y nos.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

Butterfly Herman is a

00:03:13--> 00:03:54

wakaba man, the sir, that Verily, he has been successful, the one who purifies it, and barely The one who doesn't he has corrupted it. So you're going to do one of two things for your soul. You're either going to purify it as a loss matana told us to do, or you're going to corrupt it if you don't purify it. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam used to say in his dua as do allyssa to ceram Allah home at enough Sita taqwa was the key here at the Hiraman zeca enter Will you have a molar? He will ask Allah subhanaw taala to purify his soul, because Verily Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has the ability to do so. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the famous Hadith

00:03:55--> 00:04:17

talk to us about the importance of the heart and the effect it has on the body. He said la salatu salam O Allah were in the field Jesse motiva, either solar had solar has just to do kulu with Fs at that festival just to do kulu Allah wa he'll tell that barely there is a clot in the body.

00:04:18--> 00:04:28

That if it is correct, the rest of the body is going to be correct. And if it is, not, the rest of the body is not going to be correct. It's a very it is the heart.

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

And this is very important this handy because we hear so many times nowadays people saying what? That inside,

00:04:38--> 00:04:43

pure inside, I'm good. My Nia my intention.

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

I might not look like a Muslim. I might not act like a Muslim.

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

But inside I'm good.

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

Do we accept this as Muslims?

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Because what's in the heart shows where

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

chosen the actions. That's where the problem is. And I'm saying if this is fixed what's in here, then it's going to help the whole body, the whole body is going to be fixed. If there's something inside that is good, you're going to see the good and the actions in the body itself and what the person does. That doesn't mean somebody who's evil doesn't have any good, but it will in general, if the heart is pure, the actions are going to be pure.

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

Somebody comes to us and says, I love a law.

00:05:26--> 00:05:32

I love the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It doesn't look like it to me, you get your actions, you don't look like someone who loves the process.

00:05:33--> 00:05:46

And we see this every day, every day when you put into the test of doing what a lot told you to do, and doing what the prophet Mohammed Salim told you to do, and doing what she thought he wants you to do.

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

Who do we usually obey a lot of the times do we take that what our soul desires or shaytaan causes do you implement? What Allah subhanho wa Taala says? If we really love Allah and our hearts and we really love the Prophet Mohammed says no, it's going to show interactions. The scholars of Islam when they talked about the heart, they went in detail

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

and wrote books about books about books and volumes environments values about purifying the heart

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

the scholars mentioned that the heart There's three types of hearts

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

three types of hearts who knows what they are

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

once you guys take part because there's everybody's in here like this, I'm gonna start doing with you guys and the auto is gonna fall asleep

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

the dead heart

00:06:40--> 00:07:08

soccer in the heart does so yeah, the one that has sound and healthy you have the one that is sick and you have the one is dead. So what is the healthy heart and this is the one that last Matata told us about no Quran yo Malayan, formerly known as de la habana Calvin Salim the day that the money and the children won't benefit you anything except for the one who comes to Allah with the sound hearts, the one that is pure

00:07:09--> 00:07:15

and the the one that is attached to the alcohol and we see this in the profits of a lot while he was selling them

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

as I was having my lunch today

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

and I steak, Mashallah.

00:07:23--> 00:07:42

And what's the restaurant called? We're here to do is disappear. I look for my lectures, he drives me selection disappears. Mashallah. Safari, right? I should just actually get a percentage. Next, I'm advertising for them. In the window, what do they have? There's something Islamic in the window for Muslim countries who's paid attention to it.

00:07:44--> 00:08:13

They have a seal. What is it, it's like the little sticks, the bamboo sticks which are tied together Together, which they use. For what? For like a like a fence. And you guys have in your countries all around the world, they have them. Obviously not famous in the UK and UK Border from somewhere else. So the point is, is that the products I sell him he used to sleep on this. So as I saw this day in the restaurant, I remember the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So look at this. This is what he used to sleep on La salatu salam, as you see my nice fluffy beds,

00:08:14--> 00:08:20

nice quilts and covers. He's asleep on this. So much so that it used to

00:08:22--> 00:08:27

leave marks on his on his body in bits from after he would wake up, or model the alarm. And he saw this.

00:08:28--> 00:09:10

He was like our leader, our Prophet sleeping like this and the kings of the other nations. They sleep on these big, nice beds. So we want to buy a new bed for the purpose of selling. What did he say Elisa to sell at this point? He's mainly only dunya. So whatever from the dunya why because the heart is attached to where hereafter who cares about the dunya if you take someone from a humble you don't take, he's not attached to it. So the sound heart First of all, it's attached to the hereafter. And we see it in his desires to do more good. How do you test your heart? To see if you have a sound heart or not? When it comes to doing good? How does your heart feel? Is it heavy? Is it

00:09:10--> 00:09:15

difficult? Are you striving? Do you want more? The slot

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

is already more times.

00:09:21--> 00:09:30

And it's like it's something heavy? Then you know you have an issue but when you yearn for that slot, you want that slot. You're excited about that slot, then you know it's a good side.

00:09:33--> 00:09:44

How are you when it comes to doing the good deeds to obey our laws command? How do you feel when you stay away from home this all you're testing out your heart. The next heart is the one that is the dead heart.

00:09:46--> 00:09:51

The one that has basically no life left in it, even if it's still beating a little bit, it's more or less dead.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

What is this heart The one that all the less than desires keep coming into one after the other taking over.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

taking control of.

00:10:02--> 00:10:08

and wanting more and wanting more when the good comes through, it doesn't want it. It really wants to reject the good.

00:10:09--> 00:10:17

And you have to be careful when you look at our hearts. And then you have the heart which comes in the middle, which is the sick heart, which is probably most of us

00:10:18--> 00:10:23

that it has some good in it, but it has a lot of diseases in it as well. And that is why

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

we need to focus on purifying the heart.

00:10:28--> 00:10:38

Because of the dangers that can happen. Once the heart becomes hardened. Once it becomes corrupted. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

mentioned in the Heidi, the beautiful example. And we had a whiteboard I would show you know not a good artist.

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

But we'll picture for you inshallah, what happens to the heart when you sin when you fall into that which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:58--> 00:11:05

he mentioned that Allah is that to a Salaam explaining what the raw means. What is Ron

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

mentioned the Quran, which surah

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

the word run on Windows

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

mechanical keyboard and so

00:11:18--> 00:11:18

even

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said it's the black dots, which is put into the heart.

00:11:27--> 00:11:33

The heart in general, it's slim, it's it's normal. It's it's pure. But it's that one that

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

and what happens then

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

you come with this accent the next day. And if you go home and you do it on a piece of paper, draw a heart and you start putting dots on it.

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

And let it keep going. And what happens after some time with the heart.

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

If when some sins come in,

00:11:54--> 00:12:14

what is she going to do the sinner come and she's going to call her sisters and her cousins. This heart is open, it's taken all the sins Come on. It's open heart, you can come up with all kinds of sins in here, it gets blacker and blacker and harder and harder. Until that which is model becomes an anchor. That which is good becomes unacceptable. Evil comes something you don't want.

00:12:15--> 00:12:24

When it comes to good comes you want to reject you have to be careful. The more you dirty your heart, the more you're going to push out the hot the truth must have become more difficult to act upon it.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

mentioned how the fitna affects the heart.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

And before that, I want to ask you guys something. And that is one of the main reasons that the heart becomes unpure

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

the main reasons that the heart becomes unfit

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

there's no reasons just happens.

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

Perhaps you can say the two main categories two main reasons why

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

is that first of all of

00:13:08--> 00:13:19

the shallots, the less than the desires and secondly, the shubo hats, which is the issues of doubts which affect your either your belief as a Muslim

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

the issues of the Shahada

00:13:23--> 00:13:47

and how they affected this is I think a lot of us have issues with these because in general, as we want to see inshallah tomorrow those who attend the workshop, the hearts it leans towards things the heart It's inclined to do evil things because the neffs as well as main detail tomorrow inshallah you have three types of knifes which is similar, but one of them is enough Aloma

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

the one is constantly any ridiculing itself because it knows it keeps falling into that which is bad.

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

But in general, it's something in the human nature where you're going to lean to that which is how

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

when you're walking down the street

00:14:06--> 00:14:10

and you see Don't worry your wife's can see you by the way here and then on the bottom floor, so you need to be scared.

00:14:12--> 00:14:17

You can even cover you know your voice you can cover like this. When you're walking down the street and you see a beautiful woman

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

the natural inclination for a man is to do what

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

to look no say in the masjid now So

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

naturally, you're a man you want to look

00:14:29--> 00:14:40

what should you do that something else, but naturally instead you want to look for look once twice as much as you can, when you crash your car. Look as much as you can. It's natural.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

But what are you supposed to do?

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

Now there's a difference. We're supposed to lower our gaze, we have to lower our gaze who commanded us to lower gaze.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Allah subhana wa Tada. So as we're driving and we see that we remember which are purifying the soul, right?

00:15:01--> 00:15:07

Pay attention when you go and you and you're sorted. And know what Allah subhanaw taala commands us as Muslims.

00:15:08--> 00:15:10

What is the law say about law in the case?

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

Who knows the I?

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

Don't I'm sorry. Okay, tell the believers and pay is one of the things we talked about in the other day, about reflecting on the Quran. We read, we memorize ourselves, we don't reflect.

00:15:26--> 00:15:33

So pay attention to this verse, because a lot of times we get the, how can we lower our gaze? There's four steps here in this if you pay attention,

00:15:34--> 00:15:53

first of all, pull meaning Nina Yoda, and I'm sorry, that say to the beavers, lower their gaze. It's a command from who? from Allah. So when you lower your gaze, you're following the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. All right. So it's a command from Allah that you look down.

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

What are the effects of lowering and not lowering? Let's continue the idea what's next part?

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

Waikato Farrugia home and they protect their private parts by not falling into the harem. How do you fall into hold on first of all, what's the first step?

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

Looking

00:16:15--> 00:16:26

It doesn't just happen when you bump into somebody and then you, you grab her she grabs you you go behind the bush, like a dog or something or you smell each other. And you go behind the bush or whatever that is, it doesn't work like that human beings. The first thing is,

00:16:27--> 00:16:39

as I said that the eye is the arrow of shaitaan he gets you it that's the first thing you look at her and then she smiles at you and then one thing leads to another, then you're chatting and this and that and then that's when the most liba the crisis happens later.

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

So your only way to protect yourself from falling into Haram is by first of all, step one is knowing the gaze.

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

The third thing in the

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

Delica

00:16:52--> 00:17:06

as caroler home that's more purified for them. So you implement this command from Allah subhanho wa Taala you're protecting yourself you're protecting your chastity at the same time you're purify yourself by lowering the gaze

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

and then end of the ayah

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

Allah

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

Allah is well acquainted with that what you do the Morocco Villa supernodes Allah that even if

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

nobody else can see you have

00:17:26--> 00:17:47

a look and see the Muslim has to train himself. What about purifying our hearts how we can do it? We have to train ourselves. You're driving down the road with your wife and the beautiful lady comes you have your sunglasses on so son out looking cool. You got your shades on you're driving leaning back Mashallah. And she says don't you look just awful I wouldn't have baby you know and you're looking because she can't see you got your glasses on.

00:17:49--> 00:17:49

You've been

00:17:50--> 00:17:56

looking nobody knows what you lost Kabir he knows what I'm doing stuff for the law. you train yourself.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

So Patil I saw one old man

00:18:01--> 00:18:10

who have been afflicted with looking at women may Allah protect this vanilla big white beard look like one of the teachers in the huddle Mashallah had his glasses on

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

and the guy

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

every woman that walked past him was looking at it like this you know?

00:18:16--> 00:18:35

At first I thought he was working for like the you know that you know, the hair the religious police are just checking things out. But me and my friend is a Muslim is a Shia from Sudan. We look to look more into this guy, it has been shut down. It's taken over miskeen you know, because it was clear he wasn't you know, doing the security he was doing some other type of investigation. Poor Dude, you know, living

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

in Mecca, next to the harem stuff Roma handler.

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

Here the shades on so you think the head turn really kind of gave him out in a good scene like this.

00:18:49--> 00:18:55

So he said, let's give him something to see her. So we must say this guy. So he walks up. He's like, she actually has to have a question.

00:18:56--> 00:19:14

Yes, you know, now he plays the role of shear. Okay. So he comes out he said, My friend is asking and it's about it's a good way to get to see how, by the way pay attention to stories where I've benefited Mashallah, he pulls me up. Like I'm asking the question, I was like, What are you doing, man? I'm a nice guy question. I was upset seeing the guy that had him do it. I didn't want to talk to the guy. It's a no we have to give him a seat.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

So he comes he pulls me over he said My friend has a question. So we were debating is it haram? Is the sin

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

doubled in Mecca?

00:19:26--> 00:19:42

Is the sin doubled in Mecca? He said nom nom This is doubled. So I told you it's not for law. It is looking at women. One of the sense is your sister sin is a sin. So he reminded him indirectly what you're doing and tequila, you know, he said like okay, thank you very much I told you.

00:19:44--> 00:19:49

But I'm the he told the guy I taught him remind him smaller. Allah is well acquainted. What you do you have to remember

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

people nowadays have they have a new fit.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

The new fill the fill curve,

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

shape, or they call it what the Baba

00:20:01--> 00:20:06

Where they say the premises and I'm told you that the first look is true.

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

The first step is for who? for yourself. And the second is

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

from a shadow.

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

So whether brothers do they lock in?

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

Since the first look Roger Dharma,

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

he says long as you don't blink, right? he locks in he keeps eyes open.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

He's locking it on, on the latest

00:20:33--> 00:20:51

tatula what are you doing to yourself? So the first level Hadith, who pleaded the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, what's meant by this Heidi. They say another morphology then when you see it by mistake, you're going down the steps. A sister walks by you see her she sees you wasn't meant to happen, she said, but but you don't keep locking

00:20:53--> 00:21:06

her up. Because of the effect it's gonna have on your heart later loss of final thought he's the Creator, he knows. More purifying the soul, he knows what we need, what's good, does it lower your gaze because what's gonna what it's gonna lead you to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

Pay attention. This Hadith is very

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

scary. Heidi.

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

He said la Salatu was Salam that the fittin will come upon the hearts

00:21:21--> 00:21:42

like the fasciae, we just talked about the hassio what says like little bamboo sticks that are tied together. He said earlier that one after the other, he has tied together very tight. So the fitness will come to the heart. So he said, any heart that takes it in a black dot will be put into it. Any heart which rejects it will have a white dot and will clean.

00:21:43--> 00:22:24

And then he said until it becomes two hearts, a black hearts. That doesn't know what is correct. And it doesn't reject that which is evil. And then the white heart obviously, which is the pure heart after that, or as the promises that have explained it in the Hadith. The point is, is that the effect that these sins are going to have on your heart and knowing that the sickness that will come that you will start with to reject that was just pure. And that's what we see nowadays, when you come to people who fall into heroin. How many Muslims today, they fall into heroin that was displeasing to Allah tala, and they want to find a way out for it. They want to find a festival for

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

it. Right?

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

Who's Arab guys here?

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

Nobody, nobody's out of here.

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

You guys know the difference between the first one the federal

00:22:36--> 00:22:42

chef he says he likes this one a lot. Because what he found is a Muslim, he found that we have what we call fetch, we're

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

all you know,

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

who knows what festival means?

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

One person knows.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

The difference within the two is the scene in the tap

00:22:55--> 00:23:01

the scene in the tap the federal all of you know what it means. But the first one, just so you know, that it breaks you although

00:23:02--> 00:23:20

you might not hear it, but it breaks you will do in a lifetime has a bad smell. That's what they call the first one ever. And that's what a lot of the photos have become. And people look for these these way out to do that, which is head on. But he's looking for the first one to find it to hold on to it. And I have a festival from Jack's own. So right here

00:23:21--> 00:23:25

looking at two way a way to make his harem or his misguidance halen.

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

And this is very dangerous. If you fall into that, which is don't try to make a way to look at when

00:23:33--> 00:23:37

you took an interest loan. ask Allah for forgiveness.

00:23:39--> 00:23:51

pay it off, asked Allah for forgiveness. Keep making forgiveness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Try to get out of it as quick as you can. But don't look for federal it's gonna make it harder for you. The halaal interest fetters.

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

You play you're playing with the deen

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

we have to be careful about this. These fitness when they come to the heart start to change the way we look at things. And a lot of times we don't understand why we feel the way we feel inside. So we have the cure. We have everything in Islam.

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

But we don't use the Quran we don't use the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:24:14--> 00:24:23

Dealing with the difficulties of life. People say we have stress we have this. I know Muslim women and sisters and brothers who take medication.

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

Is it permissible? Yeah, because they have they have to take it they have emotional distress. But why is this because they

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

don't go back to the original source. They will benefit from Islam.

00:24:39--> 00:24:44

We shouldn't have it's possible we will have it nowadays, but we shouldn't have it as Muslims.

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

on every corner now you find in the Western countries, how many characters in one city people have to go because they're living a living hell. And when you find some of the superstars Who are you idolize today, the football players the

00:25:01--> 00:25:07

The singers, the actors, how many of them have died now

00:25:08--> 00:25:09

overdosed on drugs.

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

You can't think of any recent recent examples.

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

A few years back, the King of Pop

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

overdosed, couldn't see all the money, all the success, all the fame that he had

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

the best ever, as they say in his field.

00:25:34--> 00:25:41

Michael Jackson couldn't sleep at night. With all he accomplished in the dunya all the fame he had.

00:25:42--> 00:25:47

He couldn't sleep at night without taking prescription drugs.

00:25:49--> 00:25:57

And then we took the drugs, it wasn't enough he needed more. The doctor would feel so bad for him, gave him some more killed the guy. So panel a

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

little after the queen of pop comes

00:26:04--> 00:26:07

with some cocaine and then drowns in her bathtub.

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

example after example,

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

one of the beautiful examples that I saw

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

was the famous actor. Robin Williams. You guys know Robin Williams. Y'all guys know Robin Williams. He's been around for a long time this guy but

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

he's good at what he does. Honestly.

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

He is good at it as an actor. He's excellent. No doubt he's one of the best.

00:26:30--> 00:26:33

He had an issue with alcohol, an alcoholic

00:26:35--> 00:26:44

who had to get special treatment for his alcohol abuse. In the interview, he was asked why are you

00:26:45--> 00:27:02

any an alcoholic? You know somebody who's successful, somebody who's famous, you would think you'd have a better life is Why did you take this route? He said because I felt that I was living in a living hell, this is worthless. Wow. So I'm living in a living hell, I remembered.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

But Allah subhanho wa Taala said no put

00:27:07--> 00:27:13

in Aurora, Latina in white men Fujairah. The PJ

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

you know the versus

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

barely, the doors of good are in

00:27:21--> 00:27:28

that which is blessed Name something blessed. And very the doors of good or evil are in a jehane hell.

00:27:29--> 00:27:35

And it's not just in the hereafter like some of us think it's in this life, and it's in the grave and it's in the hereafter.

00:27:36--> 00:27:43

And that's what we find these people are living in a living hell. People wonder why do they drink so much because they want to weigh out.

00:27:45--> 00:27:56

They're looking for a way out. They drink so much coffee in the morning to get them going and then drink so much booze at night and alcohol so they can pass out because they don't have to deal with the difficulties of life is the reality.

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

They want to find a way out to forget to have the problems of living in

00:28:05--> 00:28:27

the living in a living hell. And the last panel once I made it clear to us in the Koran woman out of them Vickery Fenella, whom I shut and bunker, whoever turns away from my remercie is going to live a difficult life. And this is the reality of the people who turn away from Allah subhanaw taala, the ones with the dead hearts, and even the ones the hearts are in the middle. They're going through this one day like this one day, like a roller coaster.

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

And we know the way to find assurance in the heart to find peace of hearts, LLB decree lay that mind no clue, barely to the requirements of a law, the hearts fine assurance. It's all there in the Quran. We have everything. We know. We read the Quran, when we hear the Quran, how makes us feel inside, we relax.

00:28:50--> 00:29:03

we relax but still we want to turn away, listen to soft music Brother, you know, puts in the right language helps you relax, helps us focus more listen to the music. But is it really helping us we know it's not deep down? We know it's not.

00:29:04--> 00:29:20

So we have all of the solutions in Islam, but unfortunately, we turn away from the solutions that we have. This inshallah is a quick reminder about the importance of purifying the heart. And some of the things that are coming between us and the different types of hearts.

00:29:22--> 00:29:37

The scholars of Islam mentioned several things would have a big effect on our hearts. They call them the four poisons. And it's something that we don't think about and then Chavez lecture with these four poisons. Who knows what they are

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

very good. The first one is the tongue which is excessive talking among Spanish one what they mean in a minute and the second is the brother mentioned the eyes, excessive looking at that which is haram obviously, excessive eating and excessive mixing or the company you keep Now, what's

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

Made by this for the tongue

00:30:03--> 00:30:09

it's something as email mcsheffrey Rahim Allah described it as a thorough burn

00:30:10--> 00:30:21

when he puts to be wary about the tongue so don't let it bite you if it no tobacco it's a snake that will bite you. And as I said, I'm going to talk to my eyes about the tongue.

00:30:22--> 00:30:51

So the biggest thing is going to throw the people in the eye on their faces in the Hellfire is what the tongue advise mouth. He said he gave me a whole bunch hidey hole much rewards that you get for this into this. He said you want something that's better than all of that. Of course, he put attorney said, control this, control your tongue. Most important thing because the tongue can be a very beneficial tool. constantly remember Allah doing good things are constantly being disobedient to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:30:53--> 00:31:18

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us about one word that we can say we think it's no big deal that can throw us how deep into the hellfire. One word we didn't think about it. The tongue learn to control the tongue is very very difficult. Nowadays when it comes to issues of halal Haram, if we were to be honest with ourselves and sit down and discuss what we do from Hannah and Hannah, we will find that a lot of us when it comes to issues of eating, eating

00:31:20--> 00:31:57

Riba from their brothers if they don't have any hamdulillah the be Hamid Mashallah Abdullah, who are things that had you know, had a means of income or holiday Mashallah, when it comes to the tongue, the Viva than a Mima these are major since President mention about the things will be tortured in your grave, the libo it's no big deal for a lot of us nowadays. To talk about our brothers tell about the faults of others who sit around no big deal the tongue once again. So this guy was he had to be very very careful about the time you have to train the tongue and only use it and that which is good. And if you go to the fourth point, which is the mixing the company you keep what happens

00:31:57--> 00:32:19

when you hang out too much. It's okay to hang out. I'm saying you can't hang out as a Muslim and chill out we're just talking some brothers about this now, even when other mushrif inshallah who might be visiting us tomorrow inshallah. He came to us and he said, we were have fun when we were on tour in in Canada recently out of some of you saw some of the pictures or not, it was me. Abu sama.

00:32:21--> 00:32:56

The heavy invader Aziz. Once in Agra falls, we did a whole bunch of things when say See we had we had fun together went out, no problem. So having come together, this is good. It's encouraging when the brothers come out, do things, but when it's all always hanging out, always doing things, what's going to happen usually, you're gonna start to slip and you start losing good things to say, and start saying bad things saying things which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala volunteer Riba for enthymeme but to be careful, so when you mix too much the process Elam when this hub asked him what is the way to success

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

he told him

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

to control your tongue.

00:33:04--> 00:33:07

And to stay in your house and to crap on your mistake.

00:33:09--> 00:33:13

Focus on your worship, focus on yourself focus on purifying yourself.

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

These two things are from the poison that we need to focus on. And the looking we talked about that in somewhat of detail. So not any more than that. But how the another looking at which is haram, how it affects us. The last thing he mentioned, which I think a lot of us need to focus on is the issue of excessive eating

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

and how it affects the hearts

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

we don't think about that. A lot of the diseases that we have today is from what what is it from overeating

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

and what is this thing that teaches

00:33:50--> 00:33:56

it's lovely it's beautiful but we don't benefit from Islam. What does Islam teaches about eat about eating and in the manners of eating

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

one third that's one thing before that the process that I'm said it was looking at something small which is sufficient just so you need just something little nowadays they say the trainers and the doctors say the three meals we taught you as a young person you suppose have three whole meal that's it's very bad for me that's what's killing you now should be five meals

00:34:20--> 00:34:29

correct or not five small meals but small portions look at the provinces enemies and looking at something small just sufficient is enough for you to for you to get back hold up your backbone

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

small meals How do you see the laser to celeb?

00:34:35--> 00:34:56

How many fingers like the brothers today with the rice with the whole maybe like a big baseball softball and throwing them out or how it fits. You look at the mouth and the portion like like that. How did that fit in the brothers mouth is crazy. You don't understand but it gets in there somehow wishes it down. Three small fingers, small portions. That's healthy eating right there. And then one third for

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

the food. One third for the water.

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

One third for their now how much do we put?

00:35:04--> 00:35:12

We put 97 99% for the food and a little bit for the Pepsi to push it down a little bit. That's it. No air whatsoever.

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

It's always coming out, there's no room. your stomach's in pain.

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

How does the factory bother?

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

How does this factory bother, I want you to focus on the month of eating the month of overeating.

00:35:29--> 00:35:32

The month we should be losing weight in and we end up gaining weight the month of Ramadan.

00:35:33--> 00:35:57

The month we're scared of starvation. And we just keep shoving the food down shoving it down. And but health wise By the way, the fasting is very good for the stomach gives the stomach a break but we kill it. As soon as the that is cold. We push it down. hot, cold, spicy, sweet all together, push it down. What happens to us and pay attention this was over the effect of eating what happens to us when it comes time to pray taraweeh

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

it's like

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

they put some drugs in you or something like that. You're about to go to operation.

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

You can't even move

00:36:12--> 00:36:18

too much every day, same thing. But you have to go to the total it's a being a Muslim you have to go to we had to pray. She comes

00:36:20--> 00:36:33

in you're heavy. And you get in the slot and the guys praying like when is he gonna stop? You know? Just come to the I mean, I mean as long as it's good, whatever is the Quran is I want to go quickly. I mean, I went there during the prep,

00:36:35--> 00:37:08

smelling the symbols and all this and in the curries, were smelling all the brothers that had for your thought. And you're going through hell you want to add you that your mind is it's pulling you back and forth. So you have to go if you want. You want to get the edge of a praying antenna, but you're going through hell because you ate too much. So when the scout is talking about eating too much that's when we give this example what are you talking into my how does it affect you even you remember Ramadan effects is something light, something nutritious, something good for you at enough to suffice yourself and to hold yourself up and then you go and pray. That's why the province of

00:37:08--> 00:37:12

Salem taught us when he would pray in Ramallah was as sooner How do you break as fast

00:37:14--> 00:37:33

just dates, the fresh dates didn't find them regular dates, if not just drink some water. Just go and pray, eat later whatever. It's more healthy has been proven as more healthy at the same time. It helps you with your worship. When you overeat, it has a negative effect on your heart and on your a bother. These are things we don't think about Subhanallah but it does have a very negative effect on us.

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

This inshallah I want to remind myself that we talked about this subject, it's an in depth subject and that's why

00:37:40--> 00:38:01

I started focusing on the seminar of the purification of the soul. I was able to teach it you know several times in debate in Ireland and several cities come to LA and it's a very beneficial series hopefully inshallah, you'll be able to join us with it tomorrow inshallah and Dewsbury. It will be from 10 to six and channeled tada and we'll cover in detail in more detail about how to

00:38:02--> 00:38:11

purify the sword and the heart shall according to the Quran and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu Sallam alone was best alone Alamo solo Salaam Baraka, Mohammed
