Explanation of the 12th hadith in the Heart Therapy Series:
The Messenger salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: (Shuh [greed] and iman will never coexist in the heart of a slave of Allah)
Reported by al-Nasai (3110) and al-Bukhari in al-Adab al-Mufrad. It is declared to be hasan by ibn Hajar and sahih by al-Albani (Sahih al-Nasaâi 3110)
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah
llama sir Oh hon alameen wa jal have a hearty Sunday gkr Manuel Rahim.
So hamdulillah tonight we've reached the Hadeeth number 12 in the series
in the heart therapy series and today's Hadeeth inshallah is dealing with one of the diseases in the heart, or of the heart. And that disease is the disease of chahatein Sharla will explain and I've translated that as greed but we will explain Charla that it is more than greed. It involves more than greed. So let's first read the Hadith. The translation, as we always do, and then proceed in sha Allah with the explanation and commentary. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam legitime sure what he meant when he called the abdeen Aveda very shortly, now each time you have shifo when a man called the abdeen Aveda, so, he said some of the lewat he was seldom Sure, which for now will
translate as greed, shorthand, a man will never coexist in the heart of a slave of Allah will never coexist. So in the heart of men, a heart of Abdul Allah subhana wa tada whoever this person may be, you will not have in their heart both shorthand email.
So we understand here from this statement of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that they contradict each other shorthand, amen, they contradict each other. Now, let me try to connect this just very briefly to the last study that we studied. We said that in the last video that one of the main obstacles and impediments to purifying my in your soul, my and your heart, is our unawareness of our own diseases. So if you don't know what's the problem with anything, you can't fix it. If I don't know what the problem with my body is, of course, I will go to a specialist. My specialist will tell me what's wrong with this but with the heart right there is no specialist that will tell you that other than
and better than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and then his messengers of Allah, he was in them. So when you don't know what is wrong with your heart, you can't fix it.
And even claimed Rahim Allah said that the see ads or sins can be maybe probably grouped, or you can trace their roots into three major sins. It says there is the sin of cabe or pride. And the sin of heads, or greed. And the sin of hazard or envy is that these are the sort of say are the foundations of sin, and all other sins spring out from them.
So he said the first one is the sin of cable. And this is the sin of home of uglies. When Allah told him to prostrate and he didn't prostrate did not make sense to Adam that it was the sin of Kippur and cleat to disbelief that all of them can lead to go for bottoming directly this one will lead to
this is the second sin is the sin of health, which is greed, which what we're talking about tonight in sha Allah, so the sin of health. And that is the mistake of who Adam alayhis salaam when Allah told him don't don't eat from there, but he ate from it. Don't eat from that tree. But he ate from it because he wanted kingship or positions and also eternal life. Shadow to hold the woman can die of law. The third sin is the sin of envy and hazard. And this is the son of whom the children of Adam when one of them envied the other, and because of that, he killed them.
So he said, these are all sort of, say, foundations of sin, and everything else comes out from them. So today we're talking about the second one, which is the sin of hevs,
So, first of all, let's understand Sure.
And here we're talking about a particular type of disease and it produces a particular type of personality. And we will see here in Shell like that, you know, it sure is actually part of the nature of every human being that short or that greed is in every human being. But you can find it, you can run over it, but it doesn't mean that you've actually completely have read yourself from it except for a few that it was a panel with Donna had fever. So what it should mean it means intense greed.
Sure, as intense greed that includes in it
both stinginess and envy hazard.
So if you want to think of shock, that's why translating shock with one word like many things, actually
In Islam, translating it with one word is problematic and insufficient. Like for instance email when we translate it as belief, that's insufficient translation, it's better actually to understand email and use the Islamic terminology. Because it's better, it's more comprehensive, more authentic. So same thing with short. If you want to say greed, greed will doesn't really convey all of the meaning of what is so sure is what, think about it greed. And there's also envy in it. And there's also stinginess and hazard. So let's see some of the differences. So in order to understand
a save instance, sure, is a character that the person will have in their nature that affects all of their behavior. But on the other hand, it could be in one particular area, not everything so that a person could be behaved or stingy with money.
Since you can go to a person it could be like that you could go to a person and say, I want to borrow something. Give me some money donate somebody says no, never I'll never leave my money never depart
with it. But you asked him for help like physical health come and carry this with me right? Okay, sit with me for an hour to give me advice, he will do that. So it's not stingy with time. It's not stingy with physical health when it comes to money stingy with it. So stinginess or is more limited. Sure, it would be in everything. But it would be with money with effort with advice with everything.
Now, a stingy person and or obscene will hold back and keep what they own. The money that they have, the effort that they have, whatever they are suffering from Brooklyn, they will keep that to themselves, not share it with another person. The person who is Shaheed or suffers from Sure, not only will he keep what he has, but he will hate what others have.
So for instance, a stingy person, you know, can be okay, this is my money, I don't care about how much money you have, it doesn't trouble me how much money or success you have, that's fine. But mine is mine, don't take mine. The shareholders say don't take mine. And I hate that you have anything good.
So either I will try to take it away from you. Or at least I'll wish that will go away.
So you can see here that there's envy in it. So I hate it, because I don't want you to be better than me. So either I will try to take it from you will see that sugar leads. That's what leads to so many other sins, I'll try to take it away from you or at least I will hate you for it. And I wish that it will go away or at least will be equal or I will come back to being better than you because you have lost this thing
should also includes hatred. That is you will hate this particular person and hate anything good that will happen to them or hate particular good goodness in general, like a person you may not take, like for some people who will may have.
You may hear for instance, somebody wants some money or got promoted, he doesn't know the person. He just hates that anything good would happen to anybody.
Anything could happen to anybody so he hates it. He doesn't know that person. It doesn't affect him in any way. But still he hates it, why should it get this this good thing happened to him or to her? So he hates anything good to happen to anybody around them. Now, if numerous of the Allahu anhu once a person came to him and he said, I'm afraid that I have perished. I am done for I am you know, I like to call a woman that he asked him why is it he said I hear Allah subhanho wa Taala says oma use NFC for a common flip home. He says the ones who are protected from the shift of their selves. They are the ones who are successful, and we'll explain this a inshallah, shortly.
So he says, I hear that from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and I am a stingy person. Also known Shahi nothing leaves my hand almost nothing leaves my hand, and no money leaves my hand, right. So he said polysynthetic Be sure to love him for iron in the mushroom, and akula madda he Kahuna, Daddy can be such a old boy. He says this is not the show that a lot spoke about in the Koran. The shift that Allah spoke about in the Quran is for you to unjustly devour the money of your brother and take it from him. That's what his book on the other hand is what you're suffering from. And what a worse thing this is boy
right? So here Here are the allow anonymous vote is noting a difference between like being
is for you to devour and take them
Have someone else so he's defining it here by the consequence, the consequence of this act is that we're going to go and steal somebody's money or take it away or cheat him out of his money. Because you need what he has in his hand. You on the other hand, he's speaking to this person, you are only stingy with what you own. That's bull that stinginess, and that is a problem and he says, it's a shampoo and broccoli.
Now Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, and this is a very significant area. He says what the law to enforce
the law of the land Infosys sure means humans have been created with show that this is in our nature.
And literally if you go to the Tafseer What does it mean? It
means that whenever your soul is present or your nephew is present, sure is present as well it is how the if you know if you understand our ivig how they're made present. So whatever you are stole is sure has also made present at the same time.
Now, it means that we have that shift within our nature, every single human being have the shift within their nature.
But let's first explain before we explain why. Explain the context of where this is mentioned. Because it's important and it will be helpful inshallah. It is mentioned, when Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about disputes between spouses, husband and wife.
Right? Wait in rotten carpet minvalue Hannah Susan, our other fellow Gina Halima used to have a normal Hello circle thing. It says if a man and a woman and there's a problem with them, and it is good that they reconcilable mend what is between them. And reconciliation is better. But then Allah says was not in Infosys. Sure. But humans and their souls have been created with that show means what stands in the way of reconciliation between husband and wife? Or for them to live a happy life? Or even if they want to separate and set but separate on good terms? What stands in their way? Is this show? What Why does it stand in their way or in fact, in the way of any good relationship
because for sure, you'll demand everything that a person owes you, I want all of my rights. But I don't want to give any of my responsibilities. That's what sugar is. Give me all of that is mine.
But when it comes for me to give you I don't want to give you so it says what stands in the way of reconciliation is this show? Because you think about it.
A husband and wife can only reconcile, especially if there's an issue between them can only reconcile if the compromise.
They say I'll give up some of my rights, I say I will give it to some of my rights. But if you demand all of your rights,
and she or he demands all of their rights, then you cannot reconcile and mend what is between you.
So that's what stops in their way. And if they want to separate it's the same thing.
They said, okay, we want to separate Okay, I gave you this, where is it? I want it back. So no, this is mine. Right? No, no, no, this is mine. So they fight over it. And then the fight over what over the kids Oh, I need this, I need that. So all of the problems and the complications with people when they want to separate or when they want to stay together is because they demand all of their rights. And they don't want to give much they demand all of their rights and they don't want to give much of that responsibilities or what the other person is owed. And Allah subhana wa tada says that this is the wrong way to do it. In fact, the way for you to have happy relationships with wives or any other
person is for you to do what not demand all of your rights.
Because then you will put this other person under intense pressure, and he will fail your expectations. When you expect everything from someone, he'll failure.
And then they in turn will expect everything from you. Right.
It's a very demanding person, do this on time, different time, this time to give me this, this, this this, the other person will start demanding the same type of performance from me. So I will fail and they will fail.
Especially that if I have I'm not going to give them everything. And if they have short, they're not going to give me everything so I'm demanding everything and they are and I'm not giving everything and they are not. So then the relationship collapses. Instead of Allah Subhana Allah one says, and you see that from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Don't demand all of your rights and fulfill all of your responsibilities to the best of your ability. Right? Don't demand all of your rights.
You know, and sometimes use
hafele look the other way. If this has not performed well, if this has not done well look the other way. But when it comes through, you do everything as you're supposed to do. And when the other person sees it, especially if they are good inside, if the other person sees it, they will change and transform. According to your way according to your behavior. They will say Subhanallah, they're not very demanding, but they're very generous. So naturally, that person will switch and they will become generous. They will fulfill their responsibilities without you asking. That's just human nature. When they find you to be generous, they will be generous when they are when you are stingy
and demanding. They'll become stingy and demanding as well.
But let's go back here, watch the show, every single human being has this show in them.
And why is that the case? I don't know if you remember when we talked about the rich heart and the poor heart. Remember that when we talked about
and we said that the heart that is rich, is what what type of heart is rich.
The one that is what you obeying Allah I'm connected to Allah subhanaw taala. That's the recharge. And what is the heart that is for
the one that is far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now if you want to understand it better, I will say that every heart has a need. Physically, we have needs emotionally also, all of our hearts have needs. So are always right, every day, when you wake up, really think about it, everything that you are doing is to fulfill that need, or the needs that you have, I need to eat, see, go and eat, I need to drink, you go to drink. Okay, fine, ate and drank. Now I need to talk to someone who can just you know, you know, just serve myself in the mirror or talk to myself, I need to talk to you talk to someone, I need to go here. So everything is just fulfillment of needs, everything we do
throughout the day. So the heart is always pursuing that needs. So the heart because of that is poor. So when it takes the dunia insight that you need is not designed to satisfy the heart. That's first, it's not designed to satisfy the heart. So the more that you take from it, the poorer that you are.
Second, the dunya is finite. But the resources, the places in the duni are finite and very limited. If I'm competing for this position, and I take it It means that somebody else lost it. So
that's it. If I am breached, or if I am a rich country, it means that another person or another country is for
a very, very limited resources in this dunya is very limited. So if I have this constant need, and I'm only feeding my needs through this dunya and it is very limited. What does that mean?
That I want it all for myself. Because the fact is that if others have it, it means that I don't have it. So
if another person has this, it means that I don't have it. So I have to always compete with them, and wish to be ahead and wish to deprive them of something so that I can have it. That's your choice. And also on top of that I wish to be better than people we have also that quality in advance that's given also want to be better than everyone around us. And I cannot be better than the people around me if I don't have more of this dunya because that's my yardstick. That's my criteria for excellence. Right. So if I don't have more of that, Genie, I can't be better than you and I cannot tolerate seeing you better than me.
So I will wish for you to lose this dunya and wish myself to get it says my show. So it's very limited, and it doesn't satisfy. So I always want more and more and more and more of it. And I always want to be better than you. That's why every human being is created with that show.
And you can't get rid of it or you know, clear of it unless you turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala because then your relationship with Allah cures that need. See, unlike the dunya, Allah Subhana Allah Allah and His favours and his bounties are not limited. So I knew for instance, if we are worshiping Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we're not competing for a limited space in general. If all of humanity were to actually obey Allah, all of them could be in general. So Allah Subhana Allah is the only one who can supply and supply it for eternity, all of your needs, and he could supply them for eternity so there is no need for competition.
So when you know that, you know that I don't have to hate you because of it.
But if you are close to Allah subhanaw taala you're not taking anything away from me. The only thing that I need is to be also close to Allah, I can learn from you and I will also get exactly
What you're getting, and if I'm better, I'll get better.
Right? So there is no need for me to compete with you in that way, or to hate you, or to wish that you will lose anything, we only wish that others lose something and hate them because of the dunya.
So if you find religious people, because religious people or people are living a religious life, if you find them
envious of each other, they'll be envious because of the dunya not because of the, because of the intention of the Salah is there, they wouldn't care.
Like for instance, an example, they used to say it right in the books and this is probably not probably for sure, you know, this is you know, true till today, you know, a person will be giving a hell up.
But the number of people in his helicopter queue, if another person starts halaqaat, they start siphoning, you know, away or out his the people from his halaqa he hates it.
And I already had, what, 510 people? Are you taking the 510 people away from me, I mean, sitting with one or two, right? So why your health is bigger than mine.
So that means you're better, you know, you're better, or you're gonna attract more attention or more people are listening to you. That says, of course, it's a competition for the dunya not for the theater. Because it for the theater,
you wouldn't care, you would say to yourself subpanel if this person is better, and he's bringing the people closer to Allah, the panel data is a panel All of you go to him, I'll go to him too.
Right. But this is the cannot happen if you're in the desire is I want to be known. And I want to be recognized and I want to be praised. But how are people going to praise me if everybody's there, no one is here. So the desire for the dunya is the thing that causes shock, and hostility and friction and envy, right and hatred, not the desire for the Acura.
And, of course, the fact that we all have this desire in us, all of us have shown no exception, no exception. That's why we have to treat it and be aware of it. But the fact that we have this ship on it doesn't mean that we cannot treat it like a rise above it. And Allah subhana wa tada here speaks about an answer. And the answer are a great example of people who were successful in overcoming this show. And Allah says that, it says you have bounnam and hajra la him, what are you doing a few sodium padget amimoto zero nada and Fujimoto cannot be in kasasa. When you Herschel Hennessy, for older homophily, when
he says that they love the people that migrate to them,
and do not find in their hearts any friction, any hatred for the favors that Allah had given them or hygiene. And they favor others over themselves, even if they are themselves in need. And the one Allah continues, and the one who's protected from the shell of himself, are indeed those who are successful. So see what Allah is saying here. They love the migrants to migrate to them, and do not have any hostility in their hearts because of the favors that are not given the migrants, meaning if the migrants are better in the sight of Allah and His Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, because they preceded them in Islam. And so the best of the Sahaba or them Hi, June. So they didn't say to
themselves, why are they better than we are? And we hate them because of it. No.
And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to give the mohajir rune and the metcons, more money than the unsolved, they wouldn't, you know, if they wouldn't take that from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, because their intention wasn't the dunya and said, they love the people who migrated to them. And they would share things with them and give them to them, even if they themselves were in need.
And that is the most excellent example and receiving refugees and migrants, because we today, you know, we today or those who are those of us who are rich or live in rich countries, we receive refugees because we can absorb them, because we have money, because we can support them. And also because we think or we believe that there's a humanitarian side, dude, but we also there's an economic side to it, we're saying that they can generate money as well.
But when the answer received the mohajir own, they did not receive them, because they had extra money and they could absorb them.
They themselves could be in need, but they shared what they had with them. And they did not support them because they thought they're going to bring us money. No they brung house, but they brought hostility with them.
Right. They also lost children and lost spouses because of that. So there wasn't any economic advantage wasn't the dooney at all. It was the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. And a lot of his profits on a lot of them so they were giving because they will protect it from the shareholders.
They weren't doing it for the dunya they weren't worried about the dunya so how Why would they protect it from the shadow of their selves because of their email? I know that if I get this Allah will give me more. And I'm not concerned and I'm not worried about this particular dunya right now
it comes or it goes, it matters very little to me. But what matters is that when I received this person on a give him Allah is happy, so you get
and when I protect them allies happy so you protect
and so they they were able to handle a lot to rid themselves of that evil quality which is green, and competition and envy. Why the mohabbatein and not us? Why should we protect them? Why should we sacrifice our lives for them? Why they don't say that, but they've given themselves and what they have for Allah subhana wa tada
another area that says well may you put your hand up see, Allah soprano and it's good Yeah, I need to mention this idea because in them you will find the cure for sure.
From the Quran,
Allah subhana wa Dallas's in Nima and welcome to configuring our low and June album, he says your children and your property and your wealth is a fitness.
And a lot has with him great Rewarder. Here you'll begin to see the beginning of the treatment of Sure.
What is the beginning of treatment is that what you possess and what you're competing for? And what you're asking for of this dunya is a fitna for you could be something harmful, right?
A fitna could be something harmful. So Allah subhanaw taala says that things that you're worried about and competing for, could be very harmful to you. But what Allah has instead, Allah has with him great rewards for you.
So Allah Subhana Allah says, Lama that mustapa was my wealthy people hi on the unfussy calm. So he says, fear the punishment of Allah as much as you can, and listen and obey and spend, this is better for you.
Again, this is better for you don't think that holding back and keeping it to yourself is better spent. And this is better for you. When you put your hand up sivola silicone, that's the same idea that we mentioned before. And Allah says, In Tokido, la Corgan Hashanah, you like Hola, como que la como la shukran, headin because Allah here knows that a lot of times, you're not going to give unless you expect something more bad.
You're not going to invest in something by anything, you're not going to invest in something unless you expect a greater return. So Allah knows and understand our mentality here and doesn't want us to eradicate it. That human mentality, you do something for another, you do something for a benefit. But he's saying now this benefit is not in this dunya it's in the era. So give, you know compete or overcome, she'll show again,
because don't think I'm not going to give you I will give you a lot more.
So the person who suffers from shirking Why do we hold back because I'm afraid that when I give you something I will lose, it will be less. If I help you with something, my reputation, right my my esteem my standing in the community that will suffer. But when you do something less thing when you do something from Allah, you will lose nothing. And I will give you a lot more. So if you believe that you're more inclined to give right
and you will be able to overcome some of the shows that I and you have in our hearts.
Now as the panela sugar is one of the features of nifa.
When you go to the Quran, and you will search for that word, Shahada here, you will find it in reference to the moon African.
And there's a hadith from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that says that it is a feature of the thought but let's talk about the area first.
Allah describes the people of New Thought he says she hadn't and equal
to the believers he says she had an alikum they express show or have shown towards you, meaning they don't want to help you with anything. Not with money, not with advice not with support not physically not financially, not with anything. Further Jaeho for item Ian Luna aka to doodle know whom Kennedy you sha Allah, human and mobile. But when fear comes when an attack is expected, you will see them looking at you and their eyes are turning as if death is soon willing to overcome them. So this is how cowardly they are. This is how currently they are just the news of something bad that may happen you will see them suffering as if they're dying right now.
But say that I will hope soloqueue can be seen
Nothing hidden. But when the fear goes away, when that threat goes away, they will attack you with severe or with, you know, tongues or with the caustic remarks criticize everything that you're doing. She had an alibi
they have towards doing anything good.
Now to understand that, you have to understand that the monaca code, the hate,
the hate the people of a man and the heat Amen And Allah subhanho wa Taala and they hate religion. So they hate any success that it's gonna encounter. They hate any success that no Muslims are going to encounter any successful Islam they hate it. That's why they are
they're not going to help you with anything, they will criticize you. But they will help with nothing, they will not support you with anything. And that is there a feature of ninja which is hating what is good
and hating the people that are good and hitting that they will be successful in anything that they do. So that type of hatred, right? A Muslim sometimes can have it not a person Muslim with great a man but a Muslim sometimes could have it. The sentence could hate the truth or hate the people who carry the truth and hate that anything good would we have would happen to anyone that in the heart in addition to everything else that we've mentioned about sure is a feature of any phone.
Now listen to this howdy from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's an it's an important that actually beautiful Hadith. He says in a higher way. When you listen either you will be will come in and we're in hoonah is it nothing, when Amina dunia or my significant other in my in person, Amina dunya, that's the first part of the Howdy. So Allah says of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in the higher
let's translate it as shyness shyness in a higher while alpha decency, when in articulacy meaning the way that you're not very articulate. Okay? But he's saying he designs a tear, not being articulate in tongue not in heart, meaning in heart, you fully have comprehended what Allah wants, you have a lot of email. But when it comes to the tongue, you're not necessarily the most eloquent person, you're not the sweet talker, by who other people are, you know, you may express, but you're not very talented in that area. So he says, that hire an alpha, and this thing of the tongue, right? That you're not very articulate. We'll see all CNF is not clear if cintia alone, we discuss the
other part will fit and deep understanding of the faith is from a man and they increase from the era and the decrease from the dunya.
They increase you in the era, but they decrease you in the dunya. And what they decrease from the dounia. Or what they increase in the era is more than what they decrease in the dunya
explain it in the other part. He says Wayne is sure how will show what I mean. And he says, Sure,
and indecency or immorality and indecent speech is from nifa. So here is saying show is from the FDA, and they decrease the hereafter decrease you in the hereafter and increase you in the dunya. And what they decrease from the Hereafter is more than what the increase in the dunya. So what does that mean? So let's focus on the second part. The second part says what should holding that being greedy, being envious and stingy and all of that for a morality? That right in decency in speech, he says this is what from the fat from hypocrisy, and they will take away from your hereafter. But they may increase you in this dunya. How? Because when you of course hold back and you compete with
everybody for this dunya you'll get ahead.
Right? You're always competing and you one more
and you're going from one thing to another and one thing to the other from one pursuit of wealth to the other. And from one pursuit of wealth to the other. See, you will get money.
But of course this is increasing the heart in disease. And you are very well spoken. Alba because I'm contrasting this to the other one, you're very, you're a sweet talker, you know how to talk well, like a like a good salesperson, right? Like a very good salesperson and that they're not putting that profession down. But for you to be a good salesperson. You must know how to talk, like to charm the other person to convince them to buy what they don't need to buy, but yet they're gonna buy it
Just because you know how to talk.
So he says that type of person, right, that type of person was very focused on money, knows how to talk very well, that person gets ahead. But he gets ahead where in this dunya the secret in the asset on, there's no,
because it decreases your asset and increases your dounia that decreases your asset on
the other person on the other hand, higher this shyness.
He doesn't push, he doesn't compete, he's shy. If an opportunity is there, he takes it. If an opportunity is there, he's not going to knock on someone's door and say, give me this he has higher as in the other hand, when someone was blaming his brother, and he's telling him HIA is putting you behind is keeping you behind. You're not taking advantage of all opportunity. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, leave him higher is from a man higher only brings good. So if you have this shyness, right? He may be behind a bit in this life, not like everybody else. And decency, you know, you don't you only do the hell out and you don't do the wrong things. And you avoid what is haram or
what is suspicious. So you avoided it to get ahead, you don't avoid right?
To get ahead, you partake. If there's an opportunity, you're not sure you take advantage of it. That's if you want to get ahead. But if you want to fear Allah, you stay away from it. And that means that he's done the most articulate person. He's not the bad, the Best Spoken person. He expresses what he needed to do what he needs to express. But what, because he didn't, he does not practice talking all the time. He
doesn't practice he's not a he's not a talker all the time. Talks when he needs to talk says what he needs to say. Other than that, after that he's quiet.
And it's like any skill that you have in life, the more that you practice it,
the better you are at it.
So am I right? Am I right? The more that you practice it, the better. The more that you speak, the better you'll be at it. If you don't practice it, like imagine like if you're home the whole day, you haven't spoken to anyone this happens to me, I haven't spoken to anyone for a while. And then I go outside, I want to start just talking to someone. I stumbled, okay, what's the words that I'm trying to use the I haven't tried it and practice it for that day. And then after some time, like I've given you know how that or whatever, after some time, I'm talking to someone, all the words just flowing, okay, I've been practicing the same thing. So this person hasn't been. So he's worth
profits on a lot he will send them says they are these are these two type of people. And the other person who has the shoe and home shoe is from nifa.
So if she is from nifa, we thought is the opposite of Emma.
And if we have that in us and all of us have that in us, then we have that that that that is an alarm, right, that is a sign that we need to take note of it. And we need to treat it. Because the more that you have an email the list that you will have of shorthand, the more that you'll have, the less that you'll have an email. They don't coexist at the same time in the same part.
And it can reach a stage
where that show can actually take all of Ilan away It can reach a stage and the other Hadith the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that the man and has said don't combine in the heart of the slave of Allah subhana wa tada has said, and V and Amen.
And remember before when we talked about the salt, and banana, nuba
I don't know if anyone remembers that. When we talk about omega two, before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also had an aspiration because he had news that a prophet is going to emerge very soon. He had aspirations that he would be a prophet. And he went and he learned this and he learned that and he met this monk and that rabbi, and he learned a lot.
And one of the reasons or not the main reason why he just believed in Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was what? What was it? Jealousy? Right? There was jealousy. He envied him. Why should he have it anatomy because he wanted it for himself. That's Sure. That's right there. Why him and not me, I deserve it and not him. Unless you choose me and not him. So because of that he rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his message. Okay.
So that is an evidence there and what Allah subhana wa Taala says also about some of the people of the book I'm Yes, una sala de la and fugly. When some of the people of the book right realized that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who they promised is going to come and they will
waiting for him actually emerged. But he wasn't from their own. They didn't follow him. Why didn't they follow him?
hazard and jealousy and envy, me has to do an unnatural law saying they are envying people for the favor that Allah has given them. So out of has said, we're not going to follow him. So hazard could actually eliminate a man completely and a person could become a captain because of.
And sure, the same thing sure has the same thing. So that's why it is very dangerous. So it can actually take away all of our email, or at best, decrease it and compromise it.
And sure, as we said in the beginning, can lead to many other sins here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a couple should be aware of the initial
public, it destroyed the people who are before you. Listen, this is a warning from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. It says beware of show had destroyed the people who were before you. It moved them to shed their blood and to transgress what Allah had forbidden upon them.
They killed each other because of it. Another another Hadith he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the same thing in the beginning. Yakutia for innama halakhah McKenna public ambition should have destroyed the people who were before you, moron Bilbo Khalifa who it commanded them to be stingy. And they were stingy. While Mara humble maranville rT rt takato and it's command them to cut the relations family relations, communal relations and they did well motorhome big food jewelry for federal and it commanded them to commit indecency. And they did.
Now think about it, why would lead you to kill someone else?
dislike the children of Adam and Eve sooner
you have what I need? And how can you have what I want. So the only way for me to get what I want is to kill you, slowly to take it from you is to kill you. I can steal it from you. So it leads to theft. But if I cannot steal it from you, and I have to eliminate you in order to get it, I will eliminate you and kill you.
So this shot really facilitates any others 10 because that person becomes so fixated and focused on the dounia and wanting that dunya hating everybody who has what he doesn't have.
You cannot have what I have what I want, you cannot.
So either I have it Are you going to lose it, either I will take it from you or you're going to lose it. So for that I'll at least envy you at least if I don't do anything else, I will envy you.
But if I'm going to take some positive active steps, I will try to take it away from you. gossip about you back by to spread evil rumors about you take it from you in one way or the other, but I will do whatever I can eventually I'll destroy you if I have to. That's what leads to.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that towards the end of time, she will actually be widespread will increase. And that makes sense. You may will make sense now in Sharla when you read the Hadith, but it makes sense right? As you come as you move closer to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam shuffle, decrease and decrease people who are closer to Allah right and have greater Eman, move further and further away from him Eman decreases when he man decreases it leads the way for sure. So he says the profits are all you send me the power of the man on the day with closer to the day of gentlemen that the power of a demand that time will shrink.
You can see that right we spoke about this before but you can see that time shrinking
why I'm puzzled why Atlanta and then knowledge and actions will also decrease. Why you should and should be widespread water that will fit in the feet and will spread by extra large by Axel Harada where total hemorrhage and killing will also be widespread. So in this case, complete sense. You take away email from people's heart you take away knowledge you take away to action Eman diminishes or decreases you decrease email what increases your thought and also show greed, envy, hostility, hatred, natural then that people will start killing each other natural then that there will be a lot of fitten that's natural, right? So the less amen that you have in one place in one area in one
country in one continent the more fit and there will be in it. And the more email the less freedom
the more email the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala in it.
Now we want to conclude inshallah by talking about the treatment of sugar
claimed him a lie, he says
the treatment for any disease is its opposite. Just want you to remember this.
For now and for later for this, you know course and for later
the treatment for anything is its opposite.
There was like, I think it's just joke, I don't know if it's funny or not but you know, the person went to the doctor and he said the doctor, you know, it hurts when I do this. And he says stop doing it. Right? Right. So of course, it doesn't make sense in you know, in reference to a physician because I need to do this, I need to move my arm I need to move on my foot. But it makes a lot of sense when it comes to the heart.
It hurts when I do this, stop it. Stop the thing that is hurting you stop the thing that is increasing your disease do its opposite. So there will surely be x say you want to treat something do its opposite. So
the first treatment for sure.
And we want to say that it's both. Let's call it knowledge based and action based, knowledge based an action based knowledge base based on knowledge,
knowledge, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has destined everything.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who gives an he gives according to wisdom, to his wisdom,
and your greed and your envy, my greed and my envy is only tormenting and hurting me.
You know, the person who is most agitated, who's in most pain is the envious person, because he hates all the good that he sees around him. Everybody has something that you don't have. So the more that you look around you, the more tormented you are no more miserable you are. So you want to be this miserable person all the time.
And when you know that Allah Subhana, Allah described these sins, in reference to the people who disbelieved in him, you will say to yourself, I don't want to have that sin. I don't want to have that disease, if it's the disease of the hypocrites, and the people who rejected the last panel data, so I want to actually be cleared of it. So when you have a man in a loss of pattern, data, knowledge based all of this is hurting me. And it's not doing me any good and a lot gives me what is good for me, cetera, etc. So this is in a knowledge based, the more assured you will be the more comfortable that will be that I don't need to compete for this dunya just compete for the hereafter.
And we'll be talking about in sha Allah about this more and more, the knowledge based but the action based things that you can do.
First of all, is due to a last panel
and part of the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Can I mean sure he will Jubilee will hypnotists subsidy or they will cover
he used to seek Allah's refuge from shock
and cowardice being a coward. Well thickness, the thickness of the chest, and the torment and the punishment of the grave.
And there is a penalty, there's a link between these things.
There's a link between these things
between being a coward and being greedy or having shot because both of them right are fears that you have of helping others.
So you will fail to rescue someone and help them because of being a coward or being che I'm not going to help you with money. I'm not going to help you with effort with advice or anything I'm withholding and keeping it to myself. And a coward person does the same thing. I'm afraid I'm afraid for my life, I'm not going to help. So it's the same thing there's a link between the two fit notice
there's a link between the two allow them this is my only she had a double Cobra is that the thickness of the solder is the discomfort the agitation the stiffness of the heart, the disease of the heart, that's all the thickness of the chest and a double cover. But see how both of these things the torment of the grave the punishment of the grave, and the thickness inside the heart both of them are concealed inside the outside you may not feel it, can you pass by a grave you don't know if this person is being punished or not right. You have no idea outside it could be very peaceful inside this person could be punished. The same thing the thickness of the solder you look at the
person on the outside it could be very peaceful, very calm, you could be smiling on the inside you don't know what's going on inside and how tormented he and she is.
So both of them are hidden. So this is also the thickness of the Southern is hidden. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam here to note for the for our lecture tonight, that he used to seek a loss protection from sure which is this disease and in general the fitness of the subject. So he asked a last panel with the Anna for it now
Well the low on who I'll just say the translation, he said he was circling the house, you know the Kava and the only two are that he was making a lot of makini should NFC Allah protect me from my own show he Allah protect me from my own show. So a person asked to know you're circling the cabin, the only day that you're making is this protect me from my own champagne no other day. And he says, If Allah protects me from this, I will not steal, I will not fall in the cage and not commit any other sin.
That is this is sufficient, you can call the term jomi or the comprehensive Do they know if Allah protects you from this will protect you from every other sin.
The second thing that you can do is giving gifts for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the more that you will give you a taste the sweetness of this thing and you will believe in the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala and your attachment because when you give your attempt the person who is so attached to this life cannot give but when you force yourself you struggle with yourself and you give your attachment to the slight decreases a little bit and your attachment to Allah increases a little bit. So the more that you will give the more that your Eman will increase. And you will be beginning to be willing to give more and more so giving as in the eye that we talked about because a lot of recommends it give an Allah will compensate you so though you give Allah will
take away the show of your heart by the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala
The last thing is to surround yourself with examples and models and people who are generous, who are not focused on the dunya
because they will inspire you to act in that way they'll inspire you to give
and to be generous and not to be self seeking and self center. They'll inspire you to do this.
And there is here a story. We have time for it. Insha Allah
Rahim Allah rahimullah
his wife asked him one day he said we don't have flour at home, like zero food at home right? So this is zero food. She says we don't have even flour at home. So he asked her he says Do you have any money? So she said I have a digital hammer from something that I yarn I spun I only have one so he says give me the Durham Give me the sack I'll go to the market to buy it. So he goes to the market.
And then he counters there a beggar. And I said, Honey insisting you know, give me give me give me only has this little hump. So it gives it to him.
But the only thing he has, but he has still to go home right? So it gives the dental home so he takes this sat and he fills it with sand.
And he goes home and it's kind of like funny. He's what are called Boomer Omaha. He goes back to his wife, nice terrified veteran what she's going to tell him because he came back with just sent in a bag. So he gives her the gives her the sand in the bag and he leaves and he's just sitting waiting, sitting, waiting, sitting waiting. And then she comes back with bread.
Right? She comes back with bread.
And he tells her Where did you bring this bread from? She says from the flour you brought.
That is in the bag. This is from the flour he bought he opened it and it's white flour in it. Like mentioned Hawaii and Hawaii at that time. That's the best flower that you can buy. It's not the whole wheat because whole week now is better right now. At that time, it's the white flower. Right? But if you had money you buy it. Right? So that was in in the sap. So this is a person to panela that gave everything that he had this one year ha This is everything that I have. And he gave it for our last panel with that yes, he was afraid going back home of the consequences of what she will tell him because there is nothing at home to eat. But Subhan Allah Allah compensated him and honored
him this is a cut off over him honored him by giving this so when you hear the stories, you say to yourself, save Subhana Allah, you know, he this person gave everything. And when a person asked me for 510 15 $100 That's nothing. So I can give and Allah will compensate me so when you hear a story like this, that encourages you and motivates you and inspires you to give my right so this is the kind of thing that you want to surround yourself with. People like that. stories like that ideas like that, that will always motivate you to give
another story and that will be the end of it in sha Allah and that is a even more spectacular type of giving.
So at hygenic News wanted to capture the
So he sent his messengers, right, go and get me Ibrahim. So they come and they knock on the door of Abraham would tell me.
And he asked him where is Ibrahima?
So he said, he didn't see it, or deem it permissible for them to tell him or for him to tell them what Ibrahim is. So what did he say? He said, I am Ibrahim and a blind, just true, he was able to him but not the one that they wanted, says I am Ibrahim.
So they took him
and they put him in jail.
And they said they put him in the mess. This is like an underground jail, where you're not protected from the sun, or from the coal. And you're chained to people are chained together and they kept him there. It's like neglected, to the extent that when mother would when his mother would come and see him, she would not be able to recognize him, he has changed so much physically, that you will not be able to recognize him, you can just imagine that
until he talks to her, tells her this is this is me. I am Ibrahim.
And he continued to be in that jail until he passed away.
So the head judge in his sleep, he saw a person saying in his sleep, he dreamt a person saying meta field validly laid out a domain and agenda today passed away a person from the people of gender.
So it had just said who passed away today.
He says Abraham, Timmy passed away died in jail. So it had just been the person that he is he says, Oh, this is from the sheath on the stream is from the sheath on, don't pay attention to it. And he commanded that this body would be taken and thrown in the dump, not even buried.
But consider the sacrifice
is not giving a damn or all of your money. This is giving your life for someone else. And you're not going to come along, you know, across many examples are like that.
He could have said, I don't know. But so that he can protect him so they can start looking for him. He says it's me and throughout all of this time. So panela he never thought about saying you know you got the wrong person. Go and look for him. He continued to endure that hardship.
And his kurama was that even his enemy right the person will put him in jail saw in the dream. Tonight, a person of Jenner passed away.
So don't worry about giving for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala even giving as much as this. Guess Allah subhanho wa Taala is getting the generous What does that mean? That when you give him he gives you more. So you don't have to worry about it. So give for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. So all of us have this ship in our heart, you treat it by generosity. So be generous with wealth, but also be generous with attitude. Be generous with the people around you don't demand all everything and give nothing, give everything and demand little that was the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that's how he was able to attract people's hearts and people loved
him because of it. So hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen This is all for today. Yes.
His story ends there and they don't tell us about anything what happens after but the important part is mentioned his agenda but even though just so it doesn't matter what happens to his body is sold as an agenda by the will of Allah. So you've come a long way before listening to Panchen Lama vmdk shadow Allah EDA in South Africa.
I'm Bill Allen.
