Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while Allah he will be mine. All Praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his seventh and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam as to what follows by the respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

And in today's lesson, I want to share with you one of the most beautiful works of an imam Ibn Al Payam Rahim Allah that I have ever come across, and I have ever read.

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

And this piece of work

00:00:46--> 00:01:06

was shared to us and taught to us by our teachers. And they recommended every student of knowledge to share this among the masses, and to share it among the general OMA and among the people among the believers.

00:01:07--> 00:02:12

And this is Imam, Ibn Taymiyyah or himolla. And his advice to a person who came and complained to him about him losing complete control of himself. So I will read the question to you. This man came to shatter Islam even Taymiyah Rahim Allah and he described his situation. This person had completely lost control of himself. And then Al Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah gave him advice. But it is incredible words, powerful words, anyone who is sick and controlled by evil desires and temptations and has completely lost his way to Allah has chosen this answer is extremely extremely beneficial to such a person. And this advice was written by Abdelkarim Rahim Allah, who was a

00:02:12--> 00:02:29

student of Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah. And he recorded this in his book, a dare what the word which translates to the disease and the cure and this book has been translated, well hamdulillah it is available for people to purchase and for people to read.

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

So let's see. I will begin by reading the question of this person.

00:02:35--> 00:02:53

A man approached the Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah and He said to him, made the word who meant the hubcap Murphy he that he said to him, What is the cure? For the one who has completely been controlled by his desire?

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

Woman, the yellow theme and the salaah Polly Hill Habad.

00:02:58--> 00:03:51

And what is the way out for the one who has been dominated by chaos and confusion? While Malama Lu female Malala ballet Hill castle and what should the one who has been overcome by extreme laziness do well not political electoral feat? And what is the path and the road to success? Woman healer to female and cell Portale Hill Hira and how can the one who has been overtaken by confusion escape this? This man is confused, he's misguided. How can he come out of this confusion of his in also the total Ewha Illa Allah manera who Hawa so the man said every time I see closeness to Allah has always been my desire prevents me from seeking closeness to Allah azza wa jal. We're in the romiley DeKalb

00:03:52--> 00:04:14

Rolla Allah He lived together. And every time I seek to remember Allah has version, I'm overwhelmed by dunya related thoughts and matters Subhan Allah, this man is trying to remember Allah, but he's always thinking about worldly matters. He's unable to think about Allah and the afterlife.

00:04:15--> 00:04:31

Why not all the yesterday Lou Lemuel power who in fashion, and every time he wanted to do productive work and good work, he loses motivation and spirit very quickly, and he doesn't end up doing anything good.

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

So then this person put three four lines of poetry. They're beautiful. I'll read them in Arabic and translate them to you. He said, available Hawa photography Ouka de hyaluron. Asahi Bill who was Serrano and Rama Kuba, Lil Habibi betta for rocket, US bamboo water well, salehoo geranyl Has your own authority will modify our level as you do. Lavina wa elvina

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

Uriah, no. Mas de la Hayato and Waterland Ian Academy him many as the hero you handle Subhan Allah. So this confused man finally he ended his question by saying, in a poetic form, he said, desire has overtaken him, meaning he's talking about himself, desire has overtaken him, so that you see him in consistent confusion. He has become drunk due to his desires and evil temptations, whenever he seeks closeness to those who he loves, every time he seeks closeness to his family, to his friends, to his wife, to his children, to his parents, his motivation to do so, become scattered, he becomes very weak, and he continues to abandon his family and his relatives, he keeps away from them. He has

00:05:51--> 00:06:44

abandoned his family and his relatives, so that he may accumulate wealth. So he's describing himself, he's saying, He's abandoned his family and his relatives in order to acquire this dunya and collect of its wealth and glamours and gold, and finds those who can help him attain the suave, he finds them. But this only increases him in confusion, and those whom he sought only neglect him, meaning every time he finds friends that help him to acquire this dunya and The Wolf of this dunya eventually, they end up abandoning him. They end up neglecting him, they don't want to make friends with him. And in this man, he says, Is that the case? Every time I seek help of others, I end up

00:06:44--> 00:07:08

being humiliated. Subhanallah This was his question. And this is his confusion. And this is his situation. Terrible, Allahu Akbar. How many people that have heard this now can relate to all of it, or some of it Subhanallah you find most Muslims are facing the very same thing, or a part of this person's problem.

00:07:09--> 00:07:59

So Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah, and may Allah has social admit him into the highest levels of the paradise. He answered this man, with a few words, I want you to open your ears and your heart and listen, pay attention, take notes, and implement this for the rest of your life. He said to him, there were who have a deja vu Illa he said to him the cure for you. The cure for such a person that has gone through this state is to turn to Allah, especially the most time law what occurred? Where are you going to go? Where are you going to go? The cure for such a diseased heart is to turn to Allah, your maker and your Creator and your provider and your Sustainer the one who gave you life

00:07:59--> 00:08:51

and the one who causes your death and the one who decrease all your affairs and matter. Turn to Allah. He then said to him, what the WeMo the World War II subhanho wa Taala and to consistently humble and attach yourself to Allah subhanahu wata Allah Todorova LA. This is what you're supposed to do a Tober la meaning to attach yourself to Allah azza wa jal. You know the word at the word law. It comes from Lyra and Barra is the other. It's the other of the animal. So you know, a mother animal. When it gives birth. The child runs to the other of its mother, and it begins to suckle this milk. This is called a bura. And so this is our attachment to Allah azza wa jal, just like a baby is

00:08:51--> 00:09:40

attached to the breast of its mother, it cannot let go. If it was to let go of the other and the breast of its mother. It would die from starvation and hunger. And this is what he is telling him. The believer is supposed to get Ebola in Allah. He's supposed to attach himself to Allah azza wa jal, just like a baby is attached to the milk of his mother, the milk is everything. However, the believers attachment to Allah is much, much more than this. Because that baby is attached to the mother because he needs it's her milk. But the believer is attached to Allah azza wa jal, because Allah is everything for him. Allah is everything for him. Subhan Allah, then he said to him, What do

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

I be Anita lemon, Aditya tell Farah, and also the cure for such a person is to supplicate and make dua to Allah by learning the DUA that was narrated from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, go and find the book for yourself that records the supplications of

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

messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because these are the very best of words that you can ask Allah azza wa jal through were a FEMA Vani Jabba. And then he said to him, and seek to make dua at times in which you are likely to be answered.

00:10:22--> 00:11:13

Myth no actually late, such as the last part of the night, the last third of the night, just before solid failure. This is a moment in which a dua is accepted. This is a moment in which Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down to the first heaven and he asks his servants Hellman says, Elian for our PA, is there anyone who is requesting from me anything so that I might so that I may answer his request and give him what he wants? Allahu Akbar, for the last third of the night is a solution. And it is a cure for the disease sick caught, Allahu Akbar. And then he said to him, what oh cartel or then a comma, and in between the event and the karma, the one who is suffering, the one who is suffering in

00:11:13--> 00:12:04

this world, the life and his heart has been controlled by desire, and he can no longer have control of his own self. Then make dua as well, the tween and then when a coma, due to Al masjid, sit down crying back to Allah azza wa jal say Oh ALLAH Cleanse my heart. Oh Allah purify my heart. Oh Allah, clean my heart and fill it with Eman and fill my heart with no with light and fill it with guidance and fill it with your love and the love of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what you should be asking and big Allah has social for this. If you social D and make dua abundant dua in your sujood because this is the closest you will be to Allah subhanho wa Taala as in the reason the

00:12:04--> 00:12:44

Allahu alayhi wa sallam said what he admired the Salawat and the fourth important time is at the end of the pray just before you exit the prayer and you make the slim, this is a moment of dua, ask ask Allah and beg him as in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said we'll be at the high Yamuna dua in sha salah, select whichever da you like and make and stick to the Diwan that was narrated by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhan Allah. Then in Amman, Tamia, he also said to him, Well, bumo Illa Valley can is still felt, and to all of this above that we have mentioned

00:12:45--> 00:13:39

and to this ally still failed, seek Allah's forgiveness, Stouffer Allah who are to lay a stone for Allah or to lay a stone for Allah to LA and repeat it, continue to repeat it, do not stop, see it in abundance, in every moment that you have that you remember, say a stone for Allah, Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam, one Stubblefield Allah that comes out from your heart, sincerely and honestly, is enough to wipe away an entire history of your sins and heedlessness and it is enough to bring the light and guidance into your life. Allahu Akbar. Remember what I'm saying? And implement this. Then Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah has a theme for in the humanistic formula for Matoba la

00:13:39--> 00:14:27

MGTOW who mme Hassan and Isla Zhili Musa man, he said to him for indeed anyone who seeks Allah's forgiveness and then repent to Allah and that is by seeing a stone for Allah what adorable LA. You know what the result is? Mata Houma Dan Hasina. Allah azza wa jal will most surely grant such a person an enjoyment until an appointed time he will grant him enjoyment, enjoyment and happiness and peace and tranquility. Until such a person dies. And this is the word of Allah azza wa jal in the Quran in solitude, where home is still filled with a book on food Matobo la your material meta and Hassan and Isla actually Musa Allahu Akbar Allah azza wa jal he said that the messengers would say

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

Subhan Allah said this is also a solution and a cure to the disease SIPCOT that has been controlled by desire an evil temptation. And then 11 Tamia said to him, Well, yeah, Turkey will the middle of girl Paula fi in the house

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

While locked in No, he said to him, and you should also appoint for yourself, the remembrance of God, save the remembrance at the beginning of the day. And at the end of the day, and this is the morning and the evening of God. This is something known. This is a solution to the one who has been diseased in his heart, to the one who has a sickness in his heart, commit and adhere to the morning and the evening of guilt. The morning of guilt, they begin after solid and Fraser

00:15:34--> 00:16:24

powerful, and it is incredible. And it will give you peace and tranquility, just before you sleep. So that you wake up the next morning with a high level of Eman, Subhan Allah. And then he added to him at that advice. And he said to him, Well, your spirit, Allah, you are all Buddha home in Hawaii whatsoever if he said to him and you should be patient, upon anything you encounter, that may hinder or prevent you from attaining what you aim for, meaning Be patient. There are things that you want to achieve in life. There are goals that you have set for yourself, and you want to get to. So be patient, be calm, relax, so long as you are adhering to your obligations, and you're adhering to

00:17:12--> 00:17:57

have gout and you're making your DUA and you're turning to Allah and attaching to him. Then you're in good hands and you're in good shape and you're in a good circumstance you are ready to die if this is your situation, and be patient, be patient until Allah azza wa jal grants you success and allows you to achieve what you aim for Subhan Allah and then he said to him, for him the whole al but a new a year the hula hula bureau had been who work to Al Eman if he can be, he said For indeed, if you remain patient upon the calamities that come your way, then most surely Allah azza wa jal will assist you with a euro. He will assist you with light and true guidance.

00:17:58--> 00:18:46

And He will gather and collect Amen in your heart, Allah would settle an email in your heart and solidify this email in your heart Subhan Allah and then he added and he said in his advice, while it hello Salah a chameleon for women of Salah the humps developing here you have our heavy for inner Huambo too deep setting and be sure to complete your five daily prayers. Commit to the five prayers with your insight and your outside. Meaning make sure your heart is present as you're praying these five daily prayers and make sure your limbs are in a state of Oshawa. don't fidget and move around. Stand still stand straight before Allah subhanahu wa ala, the more you stand still and straight. And

00:18:46--> 00:19:36

the more you keep your eyes focused at your place of sujood Wallah. This outward appearance would increase the presence of the heart and the hotshot in the heart. And then you sit in for indeed the prayer. It is the greatest pillar of Islam. Will Islam depends on this pillar of a solid Subhan Allah. So this is another advice, commit to the prayers and understand that the prayers are extremely important for the one who is going through the disease of temptation and evil desires. And one solution my brothers and sisters in Islam, for those who are lazy when it comes to their prayers, I give you want solution as soon as you hear the Adhan if you're living in a Muslim country

00:19:36--> 00:19:54

and you can hear them or if you're living in the West and you don't see that then make sure you set the event on your phone or on your watch or whatever it is. Set it. Let it say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, the moment an event is called in your city.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

And as soon as you hear them stop everything's

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

Stop everything go make Aldo and proof this is the only solution for the one who is lazy when it comes to his prayers. As soon as you hear then leave everything go and pray.

00:20:14--> 00:20:23

And then he added to his advice and he said to him, while talkin who's JLR La hawla wala Quwata illa Hill Ali and have him

00:20:24--> 00:20:41

for in the hole behind your manual have gone where you care but will as well where you will nail all of your ad dollars yet I will when he said to him and let the most frequent thing you say is La how La Quwata illa biLlah LA who will

00:20:42--> 00:20:46

say this statement in abundance because this statement,

00:20:47--> 00:21:45

it allows you to bear difficulties, you will be able to remain patient upon difficulties. And this statement also allows you to deal with frightening terrifying situations. It removes your anxiety and your worry. And it also attains for a person the highest and elevated positions with Allah subhanahu wa Dyana La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah let hold meaning there is no transfer, there is no transfer and there is no power except by Allah. What does this mean? Meaning you will not be able to transfer from a state of laziness to a state of effort and work and productivity except by Allah and you are not able to move and transfer from a state of sin to a state of righteousness, except by

00:21:45--> 00:22:37

Allah subhanahu wa l as well. And you will never be able to escape your desires that have controlled you and your laziness that has overtaken you, you will never be able to escape this and move to productivity and righteousness except by Allah's will. And this is why this is an extremely powerful vicar and this is why he said to this man, continue to make this the most frequent vicar you see on your tongue La hawla wala Quwata illa Hill Alia love him. And then he said to him, Well is Amina dua, you're a polyp. In the lab, they use the jaboulet, who Mel and Nuage will fare pool up down to follow me ostensibly. And he said to him, and don't you dare become tired of making dua and asking

00:22:37--> 00:23:06

Allah assertion. Don't ever give up on a DUA, no matter what your situation is, no matter even if you have reached rock bottom and Lo. Continue to make dua and do not be tired of a DA. He said to him for indeed, the sleeve of Allah, his dua most surely will be answered, as long as he does not rush to hire as long as he is not hasty.

00:23:07--> 00:23:46

And as long as he does not say, or I have made dua, but I have not been answered, do not see this as an interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Surely all of your DUA will be answered, so long as you do not rush. They said the rasool Allah, what does it mean to rush in a diet? He said, it is for you to say, I have made dua, I have called to Allah, but he hasn't answered me. So don't you dare say these words, because if you say them, then the DUA will not be answered as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Subhan Allah, and then Imam

00:23:47--> 00:24:40

Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah said, while the alum and the Nosler ma Saba were Enel followers Yama alkyl. Were anomalous anomalously you saw while Amina hadn't che and min Jessie mill here, Nabi Yan, Thurmond donor who Illa de Savile. And he said to him, finally, and you better know that victory comes with patience, you will never see victory in your life. And you will never be able to conquer your evil desire. And you will never ever be able to remove and get rid of your laziness except with patience, patience upon the worship of Allah, patients away from the sins, patients upon the calamities of life. And then he said to him, relief, comes with difficulty and ease comes with

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

hardship. As Allah azza wa jal said, for him, the man was Rousselot. And then he said to him, and no one, no one on earth ever attained any form of goodness, whether it was a prophet, or a regular person, except through patience. No

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

Want to attain good, not even prophets, except with patience, whoever was patient, Allah azza wa jal rewarded him with extreme goodness. And then finally he said, Well, hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and all praise is due to for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds Allahu Akbar.

00:25:20--> 00:26:14

What a beautiful answer. And what an extremely beneficial advice my brothers and sisters in Islam, I will leave it at this. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to awaken our hearts with iman and guidance. We ask Allah azza wa jal to pour upon our hearts patients and Eman and love for him. Subhanahu wata Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah azza wa jal to revive us with Eman and with Islam and with CERN. And we asked him SubhanaHu wata Allah to forgive our sins, and our shortcomings and to make our abode and our final human destination, the highest levels of the paradise and to make us company with the messengers, and the prophets and the righteous and to make

00:26:14--> 00:26:32

00:26:48--> 00:27:22

and it came from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was shared to us by a great scholar in Islam. Al Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah and it was written by his student Abdul Karim Rahim Allah ask Allah azza wa jal to grant them forgiveness and grant them His mercy and admit them into the highest levels of the paradise. Allahu Allah SallAllahu wasallam about a gala and a B and Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
