shrila hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah de vida de wasabi were seldom in Al Hamdulillah wanna stay in?
One hour the villa him in Sharia and fusina was a tr Malina, Maria de la philomela. Woman util in Fela hodja Chateau La ilaha illallah wa la sharika Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam
so tonight's Hadith inshallah, what number is it?
25 is good. So the heartbeat is number 25
and it's the short, heady message shala there's a lot of meaning in it.
And in this Hadith,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to hold a comparison between two things. This is a method
and the Ansel are abundant in the Quran, and the bar abundant in the sermon of the prophets of the law he was in them and third are examples and parables. So between two things, and usually these two things is something that is distant
and something that is proximate, something that is close to you something that is immaterial and non physical, that you understand. But you will understand better when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gives you an example this is like that. Or when Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Quran gives you an example this thing that you may just feel images, snow in your mind, know about in your heart, but it also resembles something physical that you can also know about, through your eyes and ears.
So these parables, you know, bring the meaning closer to our hearts into our minds, we understand better because the prophets Allah you said, makes this link so in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says,
in an imaginary Allahu fijo theological kana
first Allah I knew that didn't even a few kumiko
so he says so a lot he was sending them in an email and indeed
becomes old, worn out
Opposite of new
t jiofi fit come inside one of you
like this is a parable like a dress or a garment or clothing get worn out
as they become old and decayed soon as a man.
So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says first Allah you did the the man a few who become so as the last panel to Allah to renew a man in your hearts.
So he's saying you sold a lot he was selling them that something happens to a man
which also happens to something that you observe all the time. So when you see the second remember the first when you understand the second and you do very well understand through it the first so understand how amen becomes old or BIGEYE man gets worn out and decayed.
Because you understand very well that when you possess a piece of clothing that also gets old that also gets worn out. That also lacks
freshness newness, vitality. So in the same way, same thing happens to EMA and when you understand that reality then ask Allah subhana wa tada when you really understand it and you will ask Allah subhana wa Taala to renew email in your hearts.
So the first thing here is that repository system as we said is making a link between two things. And you will find this link in the Quran and in other places in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the Quran.
Allah subhana wa tada says in Surah telara after giving you the story of Adam alayhis salaam, and what happened with Adam, and are one of the things that the shavon wanted to do with Adam and Eve. La mesilla is that for them to lose their higher end Iran humare VESA Homer Lee oma Swati Hema for them or for him to strip them of their clothing
so that he would show them their nakedness.
Then Allah subhana wa tada says, Yeah, Vania dhamaka danzan alikoum Libous the URI so article mauritia what he wants to talk about Danica Hi, then Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds
all the time
of his favor and this favor is that we had given you liberta clothing what you're wearing right now clothing, USD so article mauritia What is the purpose of this clothing that Allah subhanaw taala given to you? it conceals your shame your nakedness What do you want to conceal? it conceals it. What Isha resha is also a beautifies
right? It's also for beauty and adornment. So it has two or dual purposes. As Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, what are they
can see this is one can see and the other one, beauty, right? That's really the two main purposes are clothing. That's why you purchase them. But then Allah Subhana Allah says, what he does to taqwa that he can hide and the clothing of taqwa that is better.
So see how Allah subhana wa Taala had moved from the physical clothing to the non material clothing, from the physical dress, to the metaphorical dress, the dress of what dress of taco aneema right. So as you need something to cover you on the outside, what also Do you need
something to cover on the inside. So our last panel Dallas's reverse duck with any good height, that is as if Allah subhanaw taala is saying, I know you pay a lot of attention to what you wear on the outside, and you pay not only a lot of attention, you pay a lot for it.
But Rebus tuck was the clothing of taqwa what what do you have on the inside? What clothes your soul, your heart that's better. Right? And we'll see in sha Allah some of the reasons why it's better in another area and sort of death that Allah subhana wa tada says the ion deaths
are better compared with the avocado
with the avocado,
what does that mean?
and purify your
clothing. So this is one meaning
you open the book of Pepsi, right? You read the some of us have are saying that's one of the meaning also is and purify your heart.
So there are lots of panel data is saying purifier close.
last panel data is also saying and purify your heart, purify your soul, purify your deeds.
So they say you can go back to the theater if you want to pseudo poverty. Why? They say the Arab say that's an expression that they have. They say that someone has clean clothes.
What does that mean? Not only that he has actual clean clothes, but he is clean on the inside.
His character right is moral morals, his behavior is also clean. So if you say Fulani
has you know pure clothing yet put on pure clothing doesn't only mean turning on the context of course, doesn't only mean that he is wearing You know why? Why the brothers are wearing white on the inside is why.
Another link also between a man and clothing.
Once the prophet SAW a lot he was selling this is both an Buhari and Muslim. He saw a dream.
In that green he's saying so a lot of you are similar. Right to NASA, you're alone and a people will present it to me right in front of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam while he was on the wearing shirts,
called Amina Maya Blue 30. So some of these people who are wearing these shirts, their shirt reaches to their breasts
right to their breast. Woman How am I doing that? Again? Some shirts are longer.
And he said what are
our Murali God Allah and Armando hapa passed by also presented to him while he called me Sonia Joe. And he has on him a shirt that is so long he's dragging it
right so long that he's dragging it. So the asked him so the law you send them What did you interpret that are profitable law?
Because dreams are not direct. That's why they need interpretation. Dreams right are metaphoric.
So something is repetitive it would be represented as something else symbolic.
So you need to understand that key that symbol. So how do you interpret that him salatu salam, he says a word to that you can do it.
Did that as religion,
deem religiosity faith? That's what he interpreted.
So what does that mean?
How much faith does God has?
A lot, right that's why he's come he wasn't only covering all of his body again, notice between covering and covering there's physical covering and there's spiritual covering. So he's a lot and he will be alone and we had so much EMA and so much depth that this shirt wasn't only covering his body it was dragging he had extra
but others that he's allowed to sit him sign the dream had enough only to cover part of their part of their body from the top, not all the way down only to the breast or maybe a little bit down degrees. But he said a lot but he's already seen them what he saw about Roman is that it covered all
right. So this is you know, these are one of the keys of interpretation for the dreams is for you going to see how did the prophets or the cinema interpret dreams and use that to interpret your dreams and other people's dreams if you have that capacity and that knowledge and that talent? If not, then don't say anything about it.
The last link is also a link between you know, the inside and the outside in terms expressed in terms of clothing. And this is the same for so little the low on he says a symbol Machito Minnesota sorry Ratan
Tata hierin and bizarre lahori. The woman so sorry Tata Sharon Alba salah and Besa Lolita. So he says all the allow,
conceal and hide inside yourselves whatever you wish. Whatever you wish, good or evil. Because he says, Because whoever hides sorry or the hiring, a good intention, right? A good will on the inside. And best of Allahu Allah subhana wa tada will close him that on the outside
woman so sorry, aka Sharon and the one who has this evil intent and motivation on the inside Allah will close him that intent on the outside.
Understandably saying, you follow them what he's saying. There is he is saying, and others have also expressed these sentiments are the same idea. It says whatever you have on the inside, is going to be externalized on the outside.
It will show on the outside you can't hide it forever.
How what why can't I hide it forever? He says that Allah subhana wa Taala will reveal it. How does the last panel with Allah revealed Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed by word that if you have a foot you have on the inside is pure and honest. And you have even a loss of power to Allah will close you with that on the outside, so that people in general, they can make mistakes, of course, but people in general they will see that from you. And when you speak, and when you behave, you reflect all of this on the outside.
So we as if you are wearing a clothing of a man on the outside because there's a man on the outside. And it's the opposite. And it's the opposite of what's on the inside is lack of Eman, hypocrisy, something that upsets Allah subhanho wa Taala he's telling you try to hide it.
But you can
because Allah subhana wa tada will show it through what you say, through what you do, through your gestures, through your commitments, through your through your words and the slips of your tongues. last panel Donald showed.
So express that there in terms of what clothing the last panel that will clothed you the clothing of a man and or the clothing of dishonesty and hypocrisy depending on what you have on the inside.
going back to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said,
you notice a lot of times from ourselves and you hear it from others as well as people telling you I'm completely exhausted, completely tired. I am completely out of energy completely drained.
You know with the troubles of this life
with the problems that I keep facing one after the other. I'm completely tired and like all motivation, no energy to continue. You hear that? And of course, the most dangerous part of it, of course, when somebody says or when we say or when we feel that I'm spiritually exhausted,
spiritually out of energy, spiritually have no motivation anymore to continue.
Right? Where does this come from
the one of the things
Now there are a lot of reasons for it. So one of the things inshallah, that we want to talk about today, where does this come from? And how can you treat it?
And we'll treat it inshallah we'll reach it in stages. Right? We'll reach it in stages. And the first question that I want to ask you is, and then we will be using this analogy that the prophets of Allah you send them has used clothing to email?
What impact does the weakening of a man have on us?
But if our email is weak, what impact does this have on us in terms of promotions? Right?
And also in terms of
impact? What can we call this?
How does lack of emotion affect our life?
What does it leave behind when we don't have it? So consider clothing for a second.
Or for a minute second is too short for a minute.
If a person has old or worn out clothing
What is he like?
What is it
now? No, he wants to change it, but I'm saying that this is what he has right now. Right? What does he suffer?
How does he suffer because of it? What do they fail to do?
Ugly, right. So something right is worn out decades, are very old. It's not beautiful anymore. So it's like likes beauty.
What else does it fail to do?
Okay, so it doesn't hurt cold shame, right? Wonderful. Let's say it does not conceal and protect anymore.
It does not conceal your shame because it's stored by us in pieces can cannot consider you.
And if it conceals, you will talk about emotions, if it consumes you only conceals in part and also it does not protect from cold and heat it does not protect. So, this is when a clothing is worn out. It fails in all of these ways.
the same way. When a man is worn out when the man is weak, it fails in all of these ways.
It does not conceal.
It does not protect and it does not beautified.
What do we mean when we say it does not conceive?
All of us have flaws in us.
I am the hail I'm stingy. I'm a coward.
I'm arrogant. We have all these diseases, all of these diseases, right some by human nature. And some particular to us with more in there were some individuals more than others. If a man is not there,
they don't treat it. A man does not treat these illnesses does not treat these diseases they remain and they become more visible. So a person is angry like his his his nature or her nature is to be agitated very quickly. If you don't have enough to control it. You even more agitated and angry than average. If a person is has the stinginess with them, they're beautiful with them. If a man doesn't push them to spend, they spend,
they spend no if a person is not patient is impatient, and the man does not teach patience when you deal with this person only find them patient.
So when a man is not there, it does not conceal meaning all your flaws are public, like a naked body.
But the shame that we want to hide it's public. That's the first thing there's not conceal does not protect what do you think? Why doesn't doesn't protect from what
do you think? When a man is weak? It does not protect from what
nifa hypocrisy from since
by grave sense. What else does it feel to protect us from
shaytaan does not protect you from the shaytaan and the parts of the sheath on and the whispers of the shape on and does not protect you from your own evil impulses and your own desires. So there's weakness right there no defenses. So like the clothing does not protect you from heat and cold. This thing does not protect you from the shape on and anything that is going to harm you. Otherwise it can and the last thing that isn't beautified
it doesn't beautified
and then because
When Allah Subhana, WA tada loves a person, he loves them for their email. And we love this person because of their email. People love them as well.
So this brings you closer to email brings you closer to Allah and to the hearts of humanity in general. And when a man is weak, you're more distant from Allah and you're more distant from the hearts of humanity in general. So it doesn't beautiful. This and that. So you like beauty in your life?
And there's greater ugliness in your life. And there's greater harm all of that because there's lack of Eman.
Now, how does it make us feel?
When you own something that is very old, I decayed coming apart.
How do you feel?
This shame, but else
it's cheap, right is cheap.
Sad, there's sadness or there is shame. I can go out in front of people with all of this. And there is sadness, because that's the only thing I have. What else does it bring?
Weak, helpless. hopeless. Yeah, so can make you weak, helpless and hopeless. Right? So in a sense, right? You feel this general weakness? Because you own that. It brings also anger. Why don't I have something better than this brings envy
and a host of negative emotions, because you don't have what you want to have. And you're ashamed because of what
you think about
Right. And all of these things are symptoms of a lack of email as well of a weakness of email, whether it's a lack of complete lack of email, or a weakness of email. All of these are symptoms. anger, anxiety,
being ashamed, being confused. All of these are the same feelings. The feelings here are the same, are the feelings they're
now, let's ask
Why do clothes become worn out?
Yeah, you don't take care of them. You don't take care of them.
Okay, so that's one
overuse. So this is one reason I heard something over there.
They have a limit on them. Right? Yeah.
They get old, right. Okay. So now let's exclude now because I'm when making the comparison with email, let's exclude the fact that they become old because your email really that's the only email that you have, right? cannot really become old. But there are two things right? You don't maintain
and you expose them to harm. And if you don't maintain what you have, and you expose it to harm, expose it to harm is like what you risk it.
And because you risk it, right? It's tore I it fades.
Something happens to a dry it, something happens to it that shortens its lifespan as expected unit to serve you for one year, two years, five years, right? You don't really use it right? So it gets worn out. The other one is that you don't really maintain it. You don't wash it.
You don't keep it there's no care involved. You don't do this and you don't do that, then that's why the reasons close we usually get for now.
The same thing with email. Same thing with email. Based on that, why does email become too old or too weak? To help us?
Because of these two reasons. The first is why
you don't maintain it and you expose it to harm. These are the two reasons these are the two reasons How do you expose it to harm
disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala so if you think of your close your your email as a piece of clothing that you're wearing, every sin so just try to imagine and visualize every sin is a cut in the fabric. every sin is a stain on the fabric.
It can't continue to be new if we treat it like that.
And we don't maintain it, meaning that we don't strengthen this email, we don't fortify this email, we don't support this email. So when the time comes to week, this like adding fuel to the car, with time it becomes weak. So when we do these two things, and we neglect our email and both of these things are a sign of neglect of our email. And when you neglect it in this way, then our email becomes weak. you expose it to what
you know diminishes it and takes it away and you don't maintain it at all. Then the man decreases.
Now, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
that though a man can become weak and it can decay, yet also like clothing because we can replace clothing also like clothing. Allah subhanho wa Taala can restore EMA and it will be can become like new again.
And Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, we actually have seen I think it was in Hadees Hadees number three or so, we've also seen this concept again of a man going up and down, increasing and decreasing. And a loss of Hannah with Allah says in the Quran, Allah you
know that Allah subhana wa Taala brings life to earth or to the land after its death. This is in salted Hadid after a loss of panel data is saying that some hearts actually hardened, they become stiff, because of the distance or how distant they are from Allah subhana wa Tada. So because of this distance between them Allah subhana wa tada and the passage of time they harden.
Then Allah subhana wa Allah says, right after that, we saw that we don't think that once they harden, they cannot come back and they cannot soften. And they cannot respond to a loss command. Allah says animal in the life, a lot of them have to know that Allah can bring life to the land after its death. How does the last panel data bring life to the land after it's the
rain, last sends rain, and this land that is dry and there is no plant coming out of it? You find out in few days, that there is green coming out, and there's life coming out. And if you wait for a few weeks, or maybe a month you will be eating from this land. So life came out of a dead or what seems to be like a dead land. So any heart
No matter what that heart is a loss of panatela can bring life back to it. And any heart a heart that suffers from a week eema Allah subhanho wa Taala can bring a man right back to it. So there is no despair at all when you thinking about the restoration of your email.
So it can become new. And Allah subhanho wa Taala can renew it like new clothes.
But the thing here is
why do we? Why is it
that though we understand all of this, a lot of us still say that I'm spiritually tired and dry.
I don't have the will to continue, I don't have the same energy as I used to have before.
And think about yourself. Maybe I am you are people like that.
When was the last time you felt that your email was strong and you were excited about it. You don't have to tell me this think about
those was the last time
that your email
was so strong
that you could or could not contain yourself and you said I have this that I want to do and that that I want to do. And I have this great plan for the future and that great plan for the future on our cannot wait you know to do A, B, C and Z
for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and you're excited about coming to the masjid excited about fasting, excited about the Sunnah, excited about the Quran? When was the last time you've actually felt this?
for a lot of us,
a lot of us alone is only assuming that's why I'm not asking you. For a lot of us the answer may be that was a long time ago. And it probably was the time when it was young.
Or maybe not young. There was the time when I decided I wanted to commit myself to Islam.
You may have been in your teens when you've done that may be older, but it was the time when I made that transition. I said from this life to Islam.
Maybe for some people from non Islam into Islam, or from living a life of God or do I have the name of Islam from living a life of God to come into the mystery and be committed to it and being committed
To a pure life, that is the last time that I actually felt consumed by the fire of email
inspired by it.
What did that fire go?
That fire, what happened to that fire is that a lot of times when we start committing ourselves to Islam, especially when we are young, right, we have all that energy.
And we're starting fresh, and we're starting new. And there's always something exciting about starting fresh and starting new.
And we may be, especially as new converts to Islam or as people are committed themselves fresh to Islam, were maybe a little naive, but we are really sincere. Remember that time?
Yeah, all of us. Remember that time, you really like sincere at that time, and you really want to do great things. And you really want to give your life to a loss of data. But then what happens is that you start facing one problem, whether related to religion, or not, or related to this life, one problem, and one setback, and one disappointment, and maybe a big problem in your life. And all of these
become like dense in the armor of
you know, it's like a man is like this armor, right. And each one is like a blow, one after the other, and one after the other. And in all of these, and while we're receiving all of these lows, there is one thing that we are neglected to do
to restore our email
to restore our email, we've neglected to do that.
So one blow after the other one setback after the other and demand decreases, and we've failed to increase it. Then after some time we conclude. Yeah, Eman is good. But I don't have that much energy for it anymore.
Yeah, Eman is great. And I remember in a distant past, I was enthusiastic about it. But I just don't have the energy to give it anymore. I'm busy with this. And I'm busy with that. And I'm busy with this. And I'm busy with that. And somewhere in our hearts. And I'm not sure maybe some of us have that maybe some of us don't. Somewhere in our hearts. We gave up on ourselves. And we give up on our own Amen.
Amen can really solve all my problems. Something else may count. Maybe we can. Maybe men can. Maybe talk what cannot.
So we gave up on ourselves. We gave up on the possibilities of the past on all of these projects, or the all of these aspirations of a man that we had in the past. So we get up.
And the reason or the way to restore all of this
is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam says, remember the time when your Eman was strong, says if he's telling you remember the time when your email was strong. You remember the time when your email really gave you all the happiness that you needed in your life. All the inspiration that you needed in your life, all the energy that you need in your life. Remember that time
Why was it Why did you feel like that?
begins because at that time you give all yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala without partitions. without reservation without holding back you are giving yourself incompletion to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala gave you that happiness and that energy.
Afterwards, in the face of these problems, mounting problems, mounting setbacks, you fail to give yourself in completion to a loss of power, but only in part, and you fail to believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala can take care of these problems, and consult
you know, and take away your affliction. And you relied on yourself, or you gave up on yourself and you gave up on Islam or you gave up on a man in part at least. And that's why your Eman is weak. And that's why you cannot restore this happiness and that energy to yourself.
So if you find yourself and I don't know, I'm imagining this is a common problem. If you find yourself
complaining about your email,
you're really not complaining about Islam and the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what you're complaining about is your own commitment to that I'ma give you an example.
I want to lose weight. And I don't know why I always go to that but it's like, I think a lot of people can relate not that anybody needs to be obsessed with their weight to lose weight or any of that. But I don't want to lose weight. I diet and I exercise, but I flip flop
I exercise and I stop diet and I stopped. After a month of flip flopping of inconsistency, I decide both exercise and diet are useless and in losing weight, they don't help.
Is that a fair conclusion?
Is it the method or my commitment to it?
It's the commitment to
unlike anything else that you can think of any other example. Right? Any other example in life? Is it actually the method that is failing me? Or am I failing the method?
Am I failing the process they might failing? That we're on and the sooner is profit, so a lot of you send them in my failing that I'm not really committing to them. And that's why they're not bringing me results. Where are they failing me.
So before we actually say all that, I mean, it is Islam or it is religion, or it is the or does the sun or it is whatever it is, commit yourself to it again, the way that you have committed yourself to them again, and the first time and remember the feeling that they gave you in the first time and then a loss of Hannah or to Allah, when you commit yourself to them in full allow will give you that feeling again,
and alone will give you that energy again, and that happiness again and will fill you spiritually with his guidance and with contentment.
And you will be able to overcome your problems. But we're unable to overcome our problems because the email is too weak. Again, like a clothing that is too thin, to protect you from the colder winter.
You need another layer, and then another layer and when you put enough layers it will protect you and because our human is weak, we fail actually to tolerate or push back all of these
all of these fitness of this life and will become weaker and weaker and weaker and weaker because of them.
And you cannot and will not be able to respond to them. If not Allah subhanho wa Taala if he doesn't tell you and does not restore humanity. So how do you restore a man?
How do you bring it back? We'll have inshallah some ideas.
The first one is like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In the Hadith, first Allah you did it in a manner people will be come as a last panel what to Allah, to restore a man in your hearts.
This should be part of your
this should be part of you.
And as we said in the previous Hadees if it is part of your da it means that it's part of the things that you worry about. As far as the things that you
investigate, are aware of
So if I am actually making dua to Allah subhana wa tada Allah renew Eman in my heart. I'm aware that Eman in my heart can decay. And it can become very weak. And it actually can go away completely it can go away. And if I'm worried about it, I'll make that drive. I'm not worried about it. I will.
So if you're worried about your email, you'll make that
so you and I and you should be worried about our email. Now, the prophet SAW a lot he was sending me saying like anything that you own
a decays email and also the case you understand that he made the case on a daily basis
Eman the case on a daily basis right. Am I right? If I said that he made the case on an hourly basis.
Yeah, you notice it right in man is high and it goes down down down down
on an hourly basis. Even within that hour, even goes down.
So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is saying that which of the two possessions are more valuable to you?
This time there's this or that?
And there's a saying from one of the cellophane Sharma I'll just leave it to the end that it really hits it really you know, you know, hits the nail on the head which is more valuable. The things that you are putting on or the thing that is inside and what are you paying attention more the thing that is on the outside or the thing that is on the inside. So if whenever you know I noticed that there is an air bladder blemish on anything that I'm wearing and I just take it off and I wash it or I go out and buy something new and will not dare you know be in public scene with something blemished imagine
merge in the man that lasts you till the Day of Judgment. Why does the loss of our data say that labasa taco delicacy, alabaster, taqwa is better than any other clothing?
Because the only thing that will last you till the Day of Judgment is that clothing and nothing else.
And when you will be resurrected on the day of judgment will be resurrected with any physical clothing on you
know, right, nothing.
The only thing that you will have a day is that spiritual clothing of email so it stays with you till the Day of Judgment.
And if this clothing, you know, when it's really cold on the outside, right, we put on right heavy coats and we go outside why
it's cold, why it's cold, what happens to you if you go out and it's cold and you're not protected?
Sick, and if you're sick, potentially you could die, it can kill you, right?
So when you don't have the email the coding of a man on you, you can die.
But that that death is permanent is not just death in this life, that death is a death in the hereafter. That's the death of the harm when a man is not there
when you allow it, you know you go out you go into battle let's say you go into battle
and you have no armor on you know armor to protect you. This is a person that is asking for death. That's the person that is asking for injury, you don't have the armor of a man on you and you go out into this life out you know into work with family mingling with people
and you don't have the email to protect you that's also asking for death
the death of the heart the death of email.
So anyone who's really worried about the next live have to ask the last panel Italia Allah gente de Lima luban a horrible anime that he Allah, renew email in our hearts, renew email in my heart and make this part of your regular do
I increase my email, renew it in my heart because it can die?
And all of us who are complaining about I've lost the sweetness of Eva it was the sweetness that the to the better, right? I'm not find the sweetness of very bad anymore. You're complaining about this?
I mean, there's no snow magic to it. There's no trick to it. Dude, this is what you're complaining about when your man is weak?
I can't find the sweetness of the joy of Riba because my Eman is not strong enough to allow me to enjoy it.
So you want your Eman to be to a level that will allow you again, to taste the sweetness of the Quran and to taste the sweetness of worship.
The second thing that we should try to do is to take some time out of our busy schedules, busy life
and dedicate that to reflection
and cassava, bringing ourselves and making ourselves accountable as to what we have done what we have not done when we talked about this
We're busy all the time, right? And we'll move from one thing to the other. And we even when we don't have anything to do we just busy ourselves with doing things that are useless. No, here is take deliberately take some time out from your busy schedule dedicated 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes every day and sit with yourself and ask yourself what I have done, what have I done this day?
What are the good things that I've done for a loss of Hannah? What Donna what are the good things that I have not done any had an opportunity to do? What are the bad things that I have done? That I asked a loss of panatela forgiveness for them?
What am what am I going to do for tomorrow? What I have planned for the day after? Right? What are the profits and the gains and the losses? In today? This is impossible. So you have to take time out and ask yourself all of these questions. Does my day fit into why I have been created?
Do I still is that? Am I still on the track that is leading me to a loss of power to Allah? Or did I deviate this day? If I deviated this day? Why did I deviated deviate? Where did it start? Where did this deviation start the beginning of it?
Where did I go wrong? Why did I continue on this wrong path? How could have avoided you asked yourself all of these questions.
And when you do that you allow yourself to come up with answers that will correct and reform what you're doing.
Like anyone, right through studies, right? who studies and evaluates what they do, and are able to correct, right? their project based on this feedback based on what they've done right and what they have done wrong. So you continue to do this with your life. And
although the Allah says,
in the law, the man or woman or
who's dead who
went to God, any element is a hottie shaytani T.
He says, For the Love, from the, from the depth of understanding of one, to take care of his email and to keep taking care of is the man or woman and what has decreased of it. woman feel robbed and from the fear and the depth of understanding of one is to know, is he or did he gain or did he lose?
And from the depth of understanding of someone is to know, the whispers of the shaytaan? Where did he come to him from?
So here are the Allahu who is using the word of.
And usually right when we say, What do you understand typically when we say so what is the what is that refer to?
I cannot hear him sorry.
Rules, right? law. That's what it refers to right in our mind law. But then the term of this habit of the law really refers to something greater and bigger, not only to law, specifically to law, no, actually, that's depth of understanding that 13 is the one who really has deep understanding not only about the law, more importantly about
our loss of Hanover data and also about himself, he understands himself understands the plots of the shape, understands how to go on the path of Allah subhana wa deonna. How to guide himself on its how to stay away from mercy This is
that is true.
So he says from the fifth of the individual is that he will take care of his Eman And what decreases of it. You know, this is a statement that is coming from
one of those, how will the prophets of the law do you send them from your filter? Do you want to know if you're a thing or not? More so than memorizing, right? The Law of the hora and the law of Sudan, all of that is important. But more important than that is for you to take care of your email and whatever decreases of it.
And that means that this happens every day.
Also panel like today, I didn't do the things that I used to do my reading of the Quran stop today. Why? Why did it stop? You don't let it go.
that's your thing.
You don't let it go. You don't let it slip.
You say they say you treat yourself like your stingy partner would treat you if you actually had a partner, a business partner. At the end of the day he comes on he says what did you earn? All I have this show me Show me the cash. Show me what garden? Show me what got out. Show me the receipt. Know how he's particular with you like that? Because he's stingy, right? cares about money. says in the same way you would act with yourself because you stingy With what?
Do you have Santa, you're stingy with your life? You're stingy with your hereafter, you're not going to waste it. So you ask yourself, it's like you're partnering with yourself yourself as your partner and you sit with your self and you say what did you do today? What didn't you do it? You had an opportunity, but you did not you wasted your time. So tomorrow, you're not going to do this. You tomorrow, you're going to compensate for what you have lost today.
So any data imagine a woman or?
among the casinos at the end of the day? Did I am I in loss? Or did I gain
more good or more bad? Am I better today? Or was I better yesterday?
Do I have a plan to be better tomorrow or not? That's
just like a person who owns a business or today we lost money. Why did we lose money? advertising wasn't good. Why else? merchandise? wasn't you know the quality was in great. What else?
The shipment was was late what you ask yourself, what can we do to remedy all of this 12345 say got me come up with a plan for tomorrow. All right, that avoids all of these mistakes.
And the third thing is what to do next.
element is a hottie shaytani T, and from the fifth of the person is to know, the whispers of the shaytaan. Where do they come from?
That we talked about this before? Remember?
Maybe not. First was of the shaytaan? Where do they come from?
They become sick. And you don't understand why you become sick. What do you do?
Go into the doctor right now.
Before going to the doctor, he becomes sick.
After two days, he becomes sick. That's a recurring sickness. What do you do?
Ask yourself, where does this come from? Where is this coming from? Is it from something that I eat something that I touch, something that I sit next to? What is this come from, and if we can do what's
right, experiment, I'll start eating this.
Okay, this is safe, I'll stop eating that, okay, this is safe, I'll stop going there, this is safe, until you determine the cause. Then once you isolate the cause you stop. And you know, this is the cause of my illness.
Each one of us might, the shaper knows how to attack you from certain angles, and certain weaknesses.
Some of these weaknesses are common to all of us on some of these weaknesses are peculiar to each one of us, peculiar to you.
So the shaytan understands when it comes to you in general, that you have these general weaknesses that all humanity has men, it's women, by their great weakness when it comes to women.
humanity in general, when it comes to money,
property, reputation, fame, he knows this is common.
But you in particular, he knows that there are certain angles, certain cracks in that building of a man that he always comes through, and attacks you through them.
And most of us if you ask us, and that's how we're absolutely like that, if you ask us, we're not aware of these cracks. I have no idea where the shades on comes from. He just keeps hunting me all the time. And his victim all the time. And I don't understand how he hunts me.
So we'd like that film, that's the film that is missing.
So from your work is actually to start actually stop,
stop, you know, pause, what I mean? Pause, stop observing other people and their mistakes and all the wrong things that they're doing. Leave that
and focus on yourself and say, how come every time he gets me through this outside retirement committing this same sin over and over and over? Where does he come from? How does he get me and you trace it, and you trace it and you trace it until you know, where he enters your heart from where he enters your mind from a new block a
new block it. Sometimes it's because you go to a particular place. Sometimes it's because of a friend. Sometimes it's because of particular site. Sometimes it's because of a particular weakness that you have.
And you need to work on that weakness, strengthen that weakness. Sometimes it's because of something in your past that you need to resolve. So you need to actually sit with yourself and resolve it.
Understand how to overcome it.
Social handle on the map is big. And he will attack you from whatever angle whatever, whatever area you're weakest in. So you have to understand that part.
So this is the right so next time inshallah you think about fifth grade fifth law, wonderful, but at the same time.
Do you have physical yourself?
Do you understand yourself? That's why I said before, you know, the one that we truly don't understand well might be ourselves
in our person and actually live a long life and die without truly understanding themselves. Not understanding their strengths and weaknesses and not understanding how the Shakedown plays with them. So you don't understand yourself.
The other thing that you can do to increase your image
is to put yourself right in the company of the righteous
in the company of the righteous, to be around them,
to listen to their advice to witness how it will
Allah subhana wa tada to be inspired by their example.
although the Allahu Allah
said, in what is authentic all the way to him are the Allahu anhu. He said, What is it so, so famous, it is been an omen.
He said, sit, sit with me sit together so that we can increase our Eman for us for an hour. And by the way, sir, in the Arabic language doesn't mean the hour that we understand today, the 60 minutes and 60 seconds just means a period of time, unspecified period of time. So he says, sit so that we can increase our Eman for an hour. This tells you what about the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he represents them. And why that is one of the learning.
And the scholars among the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
When he would meet someone, he would say what? Sit?
And what is the purpose of this sitting?
Let us increase our email, sit with me so that we can increase our email. Join me so we can increase our email. How do they increase their email? They increase the man by sitting together and remembering the name of the last panel with data upon them. This is one way
did you see how Allah gave me the snap man gave you that Nana, you see how Allah subhanaw taala talks about this man the Quran and the prophets always talks about that.
So they talk about the name of Allah subhana wa tada upon them. That increases their email.
They sit together and they study the Quran
recited or study it. They sit together and they study the signal the prophets of Allah, Allah He was in them.
They sit together in general for the vicar of Allah subhana wa adatto for the study of Islam, when they sit together like that, and it's something that is constant and repetitive. That is something that takes care of your human and increases it.
One because you're doing something with someone else, you're not alone.
You have a partner with you, that is motivating you and you're motivating them. And what you're studying is helping your email.
And their example, is increasing your email, and your example is increasing their email. So see that the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to take advantage of all of this advantage of the fact when they meet each other, they would do this.
And they would take every opportunity open and available to them to increase their email because they were serious about it.
So this is something so panela that you can do on your own brother so unstow sister, so and so like he used to do it on the low and you find them and you say would you like to return together?
every couple of days every week, would you like to sit and study every week every day, or there's a helicopter, there's a study circle here, but you seek it, you have to seek it. You have to pursue it.
All of these things are not going to come that no one is going to come and knock on your door and say you know, here, here's the man. I'm going to plant it in your heart you have to seek it and you have the desire to desire. You have to want it.
So it has to be no no I mean Salah should be like a model that all of us have sit and let us have a man together.
And you have to focus on the things that increase your email, by the way.
The things that increase your email because there might be some subjects. There might be some discussions that don't increase your email.
Don't bring you close to a loss of power without a note take the thing that when you finish after 15 minutes half an hour an hour you say my Eman is really increased. I really feel closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala my love for Allah subhanho wa Taala has increased my fear of Allah subhana wa tada has increased. This is what it means is the snowmen, sir, let's increase our Eman for a while. So seek the things that for you increase your email, you can feel the sweetness of email at the conclusion of that session. You seek it
and you run after it and you make sure that it gets repeated. The loss of Hannah with Diana will bless it.
consistency in worship of Allah subhana wa
We said what do we say about sense in general?
What do they do to
the tea they did decrease it, they diminish it. They cut into the fabric of
the terrorists apart.
So when you're not constantly the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala you're failing to maintain your email
Imagine decreases by the minute, by the hour by the day. That's why Allah subhana wa tada has injected all these acts of worship and all parts of the day, and the week and the month of the year. So when there is inconsistency in worship, the inevitable outcome is, your email will suffer. And you will begin to feel all the things that we talked about when your clothing is decayed. Right? You will begin to feel angry, begin to feel ashamed and begin to feel envious, you begin to feel weak, you'll begin to suffer because of it. And you begin to feel drained on the on the inside, not feeling not having the appetite for Solana having the appetite to read the Quran not having the
appetite to come to the mystery. And then you say, why is that?
Again, it's no mystery.
And solution is no mystery.
The problem is that we don't push ourselves.
So push ourselves.
Again, if you do want to take the exercise example, just commit to it and you'll see results, just commit to it.
commit to that to that regiment of exercise and diet and you will see results. The problem is that if you don't commit to it, that's why we don't see results, just commit to it.
And you will find results. So just commit to
commit to yourself, commit to commit to commit to being close to Allah subhanaw taala to remember in our last video and you will see results. The problem is that we start then we start, we start and we start we start and then we start inconsistency and with all of that our lives is filled with mastery over the last panel.
So how can a man be strong with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is our companion so of course our email is going to suffer as a result. But
when you make a mistake, right is always something that you have to remember to do and other headaches inshallah, that we will come to inshallah will reassert this point. When you do something wrong, there's something that you can do, and you have to do it immediately. What is it?
Toba and you said something.
Pray, pray like with
Dre or soda, soda, anything else?
Now, right, you have to immediately repent to Allah subhana wa Adana as the last panel deliver forgiveness. And it usually used to stop at these two. And now we have to add a third thing, do something to compensate for the evil that you've done.
It could be anything, it could be soda, soda is one of them. Right?
Right. Something to compensate for that thing that you have done, not just suffer last lived and no, you actually go and you do something that compensate a good deed that balances counter counters that evil actually cancels that even in the past that you didn't see the good deeds cancel the bad deeds. So you do that and you commit yourself to it. Again, like clothing, you spill whatever juice on it. What do you do immediately, you continue you know, throughout the day, going to the masjid outside with big stain on it.
You throw it in the washer immediately and wash it and you take it out dry it and you put it down clean. That's your email.
So don't keep wearing your email dirty.
Because when you wear your email dirty, it will bring you down.
Just think about it coming to the salon with a dirty man. And you're standing there and you say I don't feel it.
Of course you don't feel it. How are you going to feel it? I'm reading the Quran and of course you're not feeling it. How will you feel it? Go and wash go wash it cleanse? How do I cleanse a step for LA toga and do something good. Say because of this bad thing that I've done, I'll spend the next 15 2030 minutes reading the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah, I'll understand I'll read in the sea so that I understand this page or two or three that I've read. I'll give for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala something so that when you do it, then I've done something to compensate for that evil, cleanse, constant cleanse. So maintain with the data and cleanse with repentance, and asking Allah
for mouthfeel and good deeds to counter the bad deeds that you've done continuously. That's how you keep your clothes clean. That's how you keep your Eman clean.
And you keep asking Allah subhana wa Taala for support all the time. So
inshallah the projects for
this week within law
Take a time inshallah just to appreciate the name of clothing
and the garments that Allah subhanaw taala had given you just take a little bit of time, but also what if I did not have this
to put on,
you know, from the smallest thing that you wear to the most expensive and the biggest thing that you're wearing, what if I did not have this and this and this and this, and I had to face people without anything. If I have to go out when it's hot, or when it's cold without anything on I just appreciate the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we overlook. So, so many of us and for so long, the name of clothing, so just take some time to thank a lot of panels for it.
Now imagine if Allah subhana wa Tada, this is the second project Think about it. Imagine if Allah subhana wa Tada, we're actually is going to take your email, change it into a clothing and dress and put it on you would be something that you would be happy to meet people with
if Allah subhana wa tada would take your email as it is right now, or whenever you're going to be thinking about it. And we'll change that into something that you're going to be aware of where and you have to go out and meet the public with it would you be would it be something that you are proud of happy with, or would it be torn and stained,
and tattered, etc, etc. What it would what it would look like. And think about how you would like it to look like
and make it so
if you would like it to be pure and clean, make your image pure and clean. If you'd like it to be so in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada in front of humanity, make it so inside of you.
And remember what he said about the allow that whatever your love, and whatever you have on the inside, people are not going to have to see it on the outside people will see it. Allah subhanaw taala consumes a lot. But still Allah subhanho wa Taala will also reveal some and people will have a sense of it. So that's the second thing
to pay attention to. Now, the third thing inshallah that I want you to do,
pick something from your closet, right, something that is very old, you're not wearing anymore. And just think and consider how did it become like this?
You know, maybe that we've neglected maybe that we didn't wash it maybe that we did not care for it.
And think about it. Do you want your image to look like that? Do you want it to be like this? Right? And could actually your email looked like this on the inside.
Right. And there was something the last thing that I wanted to say and and really like hits you when when you hear it. It says part of has had to mean had become a nuclear Allah Dini, he came up and
he says, What hasn't Himalayan says I'll be happy with one of you. If you care for your Eman, like you care for your shoes.
And it really hits you like when you when you think about it, you say, I do actually care for my not personally, I don't have like those expensive shoes, but like, whatever, right? I do care for my shoes, like when you have nice shoes on, you see how you polish them. And you're not really careful where you stand. And you come back and you know, move any dirt. And then you know, I don't know what people do with their shoes, and then you put them back in the box and you wrap them and all of that, and anything valuable in your life. So imagine subpanel law, that you may actually be taking care better care of your shoes than your email.
Imagine that's a possibility. I know some people actually are like that. I mean, you can watch them, you know, online and one device, something very expensive, and they're so excited about it, and cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And that's the thing that they worry about.
And that becomes the most valuable thing that they and maybe we have in our lives, but not our email, our email, imagine it as clothing again, our email, you put it on, and you go into the dump and the garbage It doesn't matter what stains you know, we put on it, it does not matter with us. You watch whatever you watch you listen to whatever you listen to you mingle with whomever you mingle with, and all of that all of those things are stains on your image and we don't care.
But when it comes to my, you know, new jacket that I bought, oh, no way. No way. It goes into, you know, the closet, right, you know, inside a protective cover, and it gets polished, right and get sprayed and all of this. That's my jacket. That's the valuable thing that I have, but my email
doesn't matter. So as a panelist, he didn't even say you know, just take care of it like you take care of
Your camel or you take care of your car? Is it just your shoes? Just use shoes. See how you worry about your shoes? You know, like if you're going to leave the message right? And you don't find them and how panicky would you be who took my shoes? Where are they?
Where did they go? I want them back.
But somebody came and stole your email today.
Somebody came and stole your email yesterday, in pay attention, he didn't worry about it. He didn't demanded that. He didn't want it back. For him, keep it come back in two, three days, seven weeks. So you know, a week, a month, next year, that's fine. Whatever it comes back, let it come back. It never comes back. with that attitude. It never comes back. So we've had a lot Think about it. Think about it, and how material we have become, and how negligent we are of our email. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
ask Allah subhana wa Taala to renew your Eman. He says worry about it.
really worry about it. Because it decays, and it goes away.
And Subhanallah We live in an age where a man is very weak. And when everybody is complaining about their heart, and about you know, lacking
that the intensity of the sweetness of
the warmth of EMA. That's a common complaint. And all of that is because we've let go of our Eman And we have not maintained it. So this is a reminder from your Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam take care of your email it lives inside your heart. The first thing that you want to do with nilah with all these steps that we talked about, the first thing that you want to do so how you did the the amount of whenever you are in,
you know, insula persona whenever you're making
a new image in our mind will allow a new image in my heart If you love someone, you allow a new image in their heart. That's your for next week inshallah. And these are your contemplations inshallah, if you choose to do them I hope you do, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us of those who take care of him and in their heart and cultivated and increase it and to, again, make use of those who tasted sweetness so that we're not spiritually empty on the inside, but again, we can say the time during the tasting again, the intensity and the sweetness of email, and I'm excited about it. That's what we want to be excited about. If you want to be excited about it. The path is
there you just have to walk that path. So shall have there any questions inshallah we'll answer them but just for the sake of this recording, I will stop it Suppan allama handy. I shared with him the ancestor who could have done that
