Episode Notes

Explanation of the 28 & 29 Hadiths from the Heart Therapy Series:

28) The Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: (When one commits a sin, a black spot appears on his heart. When he refrains from it, seeks forgiveness, and repents, his heart is polished clean. But if he returns, it increases until it covers his heart, and this is the Ran which Allah mentioned: No, but on their hearts is the Ran which they earned [al-Mutaffifin 14])
Reported by Ahmad (7952) and al-Tirmidhi (3334) who said it is hasan sahih, and al-Albani declared it to be hasan (Sahih al-Tirmidhi 3334)
29) The Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: (There is at times a thin shade that comes upon my heart, and I ask Allah for forgiveness a hundred times a day)
Reported by Muslim (2702)

Sit down from the LA salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

salam that 100 Ilan Ahmed who want to stay in when we learn I mean surely and fusina will see Dr. Medina, may the LA Philharmonic da da, da da da, da da da da da, Allahu Dasha.

00:00:23--> 00:00:38

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. So tonight inshallah we're doing two headings, not just one is someone got charcoal, okay, it doesn't mean that we're gonna stay over inshallah, but because

00:00:39--> 00:00:55

the two headaches in Java are similar or close to each other, connected to each other. So it'd be easy in Java to move from one to the other, in Sharla, and combine the lessons of each so we're doing Heidi 28 and 29. And you'll see that 29th is very short.

00:00:57--> 00:00:57

Very short.

00:00:59--> 00:01:42

So both of these heads to Panama will teach us something similar about what stands between our hearts and our last panel, what dad and there are things that stand between our hearts and the last panel a diner. And when we mainly talking about today, one of the main things that we'll be talking about today insha Allah the barriers or what in wraps and covers our hearts. And when the heart is covered, like anything else, right when it's covered, the outside doesn't have access to it right and it does not have access to the outside. So if there is anything that is in wrapping, engulfing right, wrapping around our hearts, that this thing will stand between us and Allah subhana wa Adana

00:01:42--> 00:01:54

stands between us and the truth. So, the first heading here, which is reported by an attorney, this is number 2800, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:56--> 00:01:56

in an

00:01:57--> 00:02:01

attempt Nikita to be looked at in soda,

00:02:02--> 00:02:07

VEDA who was still for whatever, so

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

we're in either z hat

00:02:13--> 00:02:19

or Ron Levy, the Corolla can then run on a Mac and

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

so here he says, He will send them when one commits a sin.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

A blackspots appears on his heart.

00:02:30--> 00:02:37

When he refrains from it seeks forgiveness and repentance. His heart is polished clean.

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

So I can I can read it again. When one commits a sin.

00:02:43--> 00:02:59

A blind spot appears of his heart. When he refrains from it when one is odd. This is what was done for us to allow for forgiveness, whatever. This is Toba repents, so a lot so his heart gets polished, gets cleaned.

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

What In other words, but if he goes back to it,

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

z it increases until it covers his heart.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

And this is gone.

00:03:15--> 00:03:26

That Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran, no but on their hearts is the Ron which they earned in sort of the fluffy This is number 14 can never run out of Ruby McCann Mexico.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

So this in this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he tells you something that

00:03:33--> 00:03:56

you know, we discussed before, which is that when you do something externally, that affects your heart. And of course vice versa, the state of your heart affects what you're doing on the outside. But here in this Hadith, it tells you that if you're doing something wrong, that thing will come back to affect your heart and if it's a sin, what will only what will it leave

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

black spots, it will leave a black spot on the heart. Nikita

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

so you can think inshallah you can imagine your heart as being this white cloth. I

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

can you see a white cloth, white clothing

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

or something that is polished and shiny.

00:04:21--> 00:04:31

And you add a white or a black.to it that black dot right takes away from that beauty and the purity of this clothing

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

in it takes away from the man the purity of email and the strength of email.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

Now if a person has the profits or not asylums as a person, you know there's certain things that will go away but if he does not, then there will be consequences. But let's say 30 stay first here with the fact that when a person does something wrong, it will always the profits on him say it will always leave a mark and this mark will be

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

to Panama in proportion to how big or how small that sin is. So you can think that if that sin is really big, it will leave a really big mark in the heart. And the sin is smaller, it will be a smaller mark. But nevertheless, no matter what, sometimes to Panama, even when you're not aware, but it's a sin, but you're not aware of it, because he had gotten used to it,

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

that you don't think of it as a sin anymore. It still leaves him

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

follow this point.

00:05:29--> 00:05:42

Yeah, it's clear insha Allah, so you don't think of it as a sin. Because it's so prevalent, and we've been doing it over and over. So I don't think of it as a sin, it still leaves a mark still leaves a trace.

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

And if you want to understand the effect of sin,

00:05:48--> 00:05:52

on the heart, listen to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the black stone,

00:05:54--> 00:06:11

which wasn't black, but became black. So he said, so a lot he was sent home this is reported by an enemy, the naza, that hijo de Soto Mina, Jenna, the black stone came down from Jenna, who I should do by algemene 11. And it was wider than Milan,

00:06:12--> 00:06:17

for somebody to help I have any Adam, so the sins of the children of Adam made it black.

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

So you imagine here that this is something that came down from heaven.

00:06:24--> 00:06:31

So like in terms of nonliving being visited the purest thing that you can imagine something coming down from heaven,

00:06:32--> 00:06:43

and on this earth, right, it was, it was white, but gradually with the increased sense of the children of Adam that turned from white to black, until it was called the Black Stone.

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

And what this had is, you know, hence

00:06:49--> 00:06:58

is that, you know, first of all, see how sins can affect even nonliving objects and things.

00:07:00--> 00:07:30

So, if we can affect a stone from gender like that, imagine how it affects you know, the seas, the lands, the plants, the animals, the economy, the crime rate, right, how people like each other or hate each other harmony, peace, whatever it is, right, even in effect, now, living beings or things this way, that of course can affect you as a living being was more sensitive, much greater ways.

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

Right? So it can turn a

00:07:35--> 00:07:49

stone from white to black, it can turn a heart from white and black and it can turn a society from white to black, in a sense of wide being pure and blind being impure electric extreme of this and

00:07:50--> 00:08:16

so if we can do it to a stone imagine the effect on my on your heart. What will it do to your and my heart when a person sins and continue to send and continues to sin. And he may imagine all it has nothing no effect on my heart. I'm still good, I'm still pious, I'm still Muslim, I still have a man he still does all of these things. But if Allah subhanaw taala were to reveal this heart to you, it may look black

00:08:17--> 00:08:47

or black ish because why because of all the sins that a person is used to digest imbibes practices and never stops to seek a loss forgiveness from them never stops to say Allah forgive me for this does not repent from all of them. So one black on top of another blind spot another another black spot until the heart turns into a complete black and this is gone. That last panel talks about in the Quran which inshallah we'll come to

00:08:48--> 00:09:08

what is sin due to the heart and we talked about this before and this is I think in Hadith number three, because this should remind you of headache number three, we talked about the headache where the thickener will be presented to the heart and if you accept it, it will leave a black mark if you reject it, leave a white mark if you remember this Howdy. What is the sin due to the heart

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

It will steal away the beauty of your life and the beauty of the heart. the purity of image and the purity of your life, the joy of

00:09:19--> 00:09:27

the joy in your life and its happiness. All that will go away. Because when you think about it in the hereafter what is sin bring?

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

next life

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

health wise Hellfire

00:09:33--> 00:09:38

but it doesn't only bring hell over there. It brings hell here.

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

And the good deed What does it bring in? Next slide Jenna, but it doesn't only bring Jenna over there brings the agenda here as well. That's in the feeling

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

in the comfort in the peace and tranquility that Allah subhanaw taala will give to you or the lack of all of this with sin. So there's hell on earth and there is heaven on earth. So when a person can

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

It's a sin, to panela it will bring to him or to her and will make them live on hell and hell on this earth. With all of the discomfort, the uptightness, the anger, the anxiety, the fear, the regret, the sorrow, and then the shaytan is after you the shaytan will not let you have a happy moment.

00:10:22--> 00:10:47

Happy in the Quran, possibly, but not a real happy moment. And if it's a happy moment, he sets you up, so that you will be happy now only to be extremely sad later. That's what the shavon does. Which is different than what a loss of Hannah what Allah does with you, Allah wants you to happy now. And later, the shaitaan tells you do this because it will bring you happiness. Just drink, take that as just an example drink.

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

And people think that that is bigger than happiness, what happens when what happens later?

00:10:57--> 00:11:38

Yeah, I mean, all the physical symptoms that will come after, of course, a lot of sin, but all the physical symptoms, the hangover that follows the vomiting, the incredible like credible headaches, right? And then all the diseases that it puts in the body. So the next day you feeling miserable, that thing that was supposed to make you happy and forget the next day, the thing the cost of your own happiness is still there, plus the headache, and the vomiting and feeling lousy and terrible. So this is how the season sets you up, you'll feel better just take it. If you do that makes you miserable later. But what he counts on is that you forget and you're weak. I am you will forget and

00:11:38--> 00:11:46

will we so after a few days, what he does is a drink later you forgotten the lesson. So I'll do it again. Then you fall in that trap again.

00:11:48--> 00:12:05

And then after a few days, drink again and so on. And you go into this cycle with a shift and pushes you, you listen to the record, you're more miserable. And now you need more of that disease because you can't handle your pain anymore. Right just like drugs, this is addiction like just like drugs.

00:12:06--> 00:12:35

I just like drugs because they just take this and will make you happy and it doesn't so he steals from this. The comfort that a man gives you the beauty of a man the beauty in your life. Your life sounds miserable and feels miserable. Your heart feels miserable you know and your friends, your relatives, your job, yeah, anything that surrounds you loses any meaning because you have covered yourself. So Pamela in this sin.

00:12:37--> 00:12:50

So one thing also that we talked about that sin does is that it does stand between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala so seeing the truth, recognizing the truth and loving the truth, diminishes,

00:12:51--> 00:13:01

diminishes. It's like a person right who can see his eyesight is 2020. And it start going starts going down you could see from afar.

00:13:02--> 00:13:16

But when your site starts going downhill, you can't see anymore. And if you can't see you cannot recognize and if you cannot recognize you don't know how to move, where to move and what to do with what you see. Same thing this then blocks your vision.

00:13:18--> 00:13:25

Because it stands if you imagine yourself there's a highway between you and Allah subhana wa tada that's how you connect with Allah and your heart.

00:13:27--> 00:13:37

every sin is like a block is like a roadblock, one roadblock another roadblock. And there's enough of them the heart can see the truth anymore cannot recognize it.

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

It comes to them but he can't see it anymore. And even if he sees it

00:13:45--> 00:13:45

doesn't like it.

00:13:47--> 00:14:30

Because his love is not there. His love is with the dunya His love is with the shape is love it was there with his own desire. But whereas the last panel is selling on the other hand stop this nobody ally love it. How am I going to stop it? How am I going to stop drinking and gambling how I'm going to stop looking at what I'm not supposed to look at how am I going to stop you know taking from the forum or giving how I'm going to stop I like it right to the hearts ability it's healthy to say no drops because of that sense because the heart is infected the heart is disease now. So can stay say no anymore because they like all of this. So it cannot see the truth. And when it sees it, it

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

doesn't want to follow

00:14:33--> 00:14:43

in the eye of the prophets of a lot he would send them quotes and daddy can never run an app UI mechanics even the either is before it says wait. Am I a tuna or salty?

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

When our is recited and giving to them, this is talking about the non believers. When the eye is are given to them an eye is a sign an eye is a sign and is a sign that you cannot miss a sign that a

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Speaking the truth, this is what an A is, like them one

00:15:04--> 00:15:09

of the profits of a lot of us cinema drama in our code is, what are they called?

00:15:13--> 00:15:32

Because they are signs that prove that Allah Subhana, Allah has sent them that Allah exists that Allah is speaking to them. So he is assigned the points to our last panel data and proves that what he's saying is true. So we need to know when our signs are given to them there is what do they say? These are the tails of the old folks.

00:15:34--> 00:15:57

All tails, right? Tails, the procedure tells us of India, that's what it is. And he not bring anything from Allah. This is all human. What does Allah say? Kela? No, but one rupee mechanics evil? No, it is the one that has covered their hearts, that it stopped them from recognizing what the truth is, or admitting to it or wanting to follow it. It's not what they're saying, their mind.

00:16:00--> 00:16:31

So you're asking yourself a viola, what is the thing that made them say what they're saying right now. So this is the thing that you have to pay attention to. When you're giving data, sometimes you're talking to someone, sometimes it's the problem is not with the proof itself. The proof is clear. The problem is that the hearts and time is not ready to accept that truth and to follow it. So you need to work more on that individual and soften their heart and make it out to them and maybe bring different truths, but the heart is not ready. Otherwise, if the heart is really clean and pure.

00:16:33--> 00:16:37

You know, one proof would be enough for it? Well, proof would be enough for it.

00:16:39--> 00:16:53

So when if you were to ask Allah subhanaw taala what is the thing that stopped them Allah subhanaw taala had told you can never run an Apollo behind Mac and we actually want it is this thing that stopped them, the one that stopped them from admitting to what the truth is.

00:16:55--> 00:16:55


00:16:57--> 00:17:03

one of the serafino commentators on the Hadeeth, you know, brought a very nice analogy, I thought it's really beautiful.

00:17:04--> 00:17:11

To understand both the heart and sin, He says, the heart and sins are like your hand.

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

Or like your hand. It says each sin bite is like holding one finger.

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

So if you hold enough of them,

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

you've developed a fist.

00:17:28--> 00:17:31

And the hand now is not open anymore. It's closed.

00:17:32--> 00:17:48

You can't give me anything, I can't take anything in this hand, right? I can't carry anything with it. I can't write anything with it. If it stays like this, like it's the meat at least you know a lot is the least useful position that you can take unless you want to

00:17:51--> 00:18:09

fight us you want to fight us somewhere, right? So again, this is actually the most aggressive stance or form that your hand can take. Which is like sin by the way, because the more that you acquire of sin, the less of a loss of Hannah with Allah that you will have in your heart, you'll be more cruel

00:18:11--> 00:18:41

and less merciful, more corrupting on this earth, more harmful to everybody human and non human alike. So when corruption last panel Dallas's borrowed facade of the very old, corruption has spread on land and indices it because of what people had earned. Because of sin, this is what sin brings, not only brings it on the outside, brings it on the inside. So this is the more least useful uniform that the hand can take. And it happened because of sin.

00:18:42--> 00:18:59

So for you to be able to retain the full function of your hand, when it's open, it can receive stuff like a heart is able to receive from Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah. And to be able to get things like a heart and open heart can give to other people also, as well, what do you have to do?

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

Start unfolding, by removing the sin by one by one, one by one until the hand is open again. And that's the exact metaphor of the heart. When it's closed, it can't take anything that's similar.

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

When it's open, that's when it's ready to take and to give.

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

So I thought this was actually a beautiful one.

00:19:24--> 00:19:28

So we talked about texting it not recognizing any of the truth.

00:19:29--> 00:19:30


00:19:31--> 00:19:35

what is this run that the profits of a lot of us has talked about?

00:19:38--> 00:19:52

This state of run can never run around actually is a verb, or an adult who became it overwhelmed their hearts, the profits a lot of silom uses the Hadith as a noun, but in the eye, it's a verb or on

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

their hearts were overwhelmed by the sins that they commit. So one sin after the

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

Other one black dot after the other, until it can reach such a stage where the heart is overwhelmed Hector the Prophet AutoSum says, had Tallulah Alba until it covers his or her heart. When it's like that, that complete that covering is complete, or almost complete. This is

00:20:22--> 00:20:48

this is the wrong Allah subhana wa Jalla is talking about in his prophet sallallahu Sallam is talking about and in the I talks about the Kufa but any that describes the kuffaar any ayah that describes the People of the Book, any Muslim that listens to it shouldn't say, That's not from me, should never say that is not from me. Why because you or anyone else could start as a Muslim,

00:20:49--> 00:21:33

but one sin and after the other to panela. Before you know it, you can end up with what Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about. One could end up with, and be among the non believers that Allah subhanaw taala had talked about. So there are no assurances, and no guarantees. So you we don't say oh, this is just for them, and we don't have to worry about it. No, you have to worry about it. If our last panel that I said that this is one of the greatest blockages that stop you from reaching Allah subhana wa Tada, this is the last panel data talks about so it is the thin and thin they accumulate, multiply, they overwhelm the heart, they cover the heart the heart surrenders to them,

00:21:33--> 00:21:41

that's it is surrounded with blackness darkness and has no access to the truth anymore. And the truth cannot reach it anymore.

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

After that, reaching that stage a las panatela talks in the Quran about

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

a possibility of cutting

00:21:53--> 00:22:01

this after Iran one stage after is the stage of seal having a seal on the heart.

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

So like the Iran because someone may say why would Allah subhana wa Tada, right?

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

Put a seed on a person's heart.

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

Like, what what what does this run according to the IRS? Why did it happen

00:22:21--> 00:22:22

because of sins.

00:22:23--> 00:22:46

So they committed enough since they deserved that state, they brought it on themselves. It's like building a wall one brick after the other until you can see what's behind that wall anymore exactly like it's so we build it. So once you build it, you have that fun. Then if a las panatela continues to see that this person is rebellious and obstinate,

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

and does not listen to Allah subhana wa tada and continues on this path. And there is no good in him or very, very little good in him, Allah subhanaw taala may decide to put a seal on the person's heart.

00:22:59--> 00:23:17

And if there's a seal, there's more of a barrier more of a black between him and a loss of power data. Because it's not easy to open a heart or a door or a letter that has a seal on it. There's more work and effort that is needed. And there's a state that follows that which is the state have to be locked.

00:23:18--> 00:24:02

And if it is locked, it's like a lot, right. It's like having a lock on it with a key and you take the key away. If there's a lock on it, that's even a more severe seal on the heart. A more severe barrier between the person and the last panel what that is for the person who breached the ends, were a last kind of $1 nose. Well Oh Allah that that person is not coming back, although some of the Automat said that it's possible a lot panatela can open that lot on the hearts if he wishes. But it's very difficult to talk to this person or to convince them of anything because there's a lot and unless Allah Subhana Allah decides to open that lock, give someone the key. And open that lock you

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

can go inside will argue with you from now till next year, and nothing will go inside.

00:24:08--> 00:24:21

You can present all the evidence from the Quran from the sooner intellectual, emotional evidence, personal power, whatever it is, nothing will go inside. And that's what a person should be worried about an freedom.

00:24:22--> 00:24:29

Can I reach such a stage where I will hear the truth and keep listening to it and has no effect on no effect on me?

00:24:31--> 00:24:35

Because you may ask yourself, leave Subhanallah How do I know that?

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

How do I know?

00:24:39--> 00:24:43

That there's darkness in my heart? I can't see my heart. So how do I know?

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

So imagine that you're driving your car.

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

And there is something wrong with its engine and you can't see the engine you're driving.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

How do you know there is something wrong with the engine

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

Do you listen to the noise?

00:25:04--> 00:25:28

Maybe there's a light that tells you that there's something wrong. Are you listening to the noise? Oh, you witness and assess the performance of the vehicle. You haven't seen the engine, right? You still you're driving, you haven't seen the engine. But you decide, Oh, you think there's something wrong with the engine? Why do you do this because something in the car tells you that his performance reflects something a mistake, or a problem with its engine.

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

That's how you know.

00:25:31--> 00:25:49

You follow me so far, I haven't looked at the engine. I haven't popped the hood and haven't looked in the engine. I know that there is something wrong. It's the same thing that you would know there is something wrong, although you cannot detect this blackness in your heart. How do you know? You just see how you are driving, how your life is going.

00:25:51--> 00:25:59

And if you notice that, you're always upset, you're always angry, you're always anxious, you're always dissatisfied, you're not happy. Right?

00:26:01--> 00:26:07

When sin happens, you're not upset about it. When you lose something that Allah loves. You're not angry because of it.

00:26:08--> 00:26:13

All these are signs on your dashboard that tells you there is something wrong with

00:26:15--> 00:26:25

the car is not moving, right? Your body is not moving right? Your heart is not moving, right? All of these are signs. Because the heart is doing well. You shouldn't have any of this.

00:26:27--> 00:26:35

So it's like a check your engine sign. Oh, why am I so angry? Why am I so irritable, irritable? Why am I so

00:26:37--> 00:27:10

upset with everybody around me? Why am I so sad? Why am I so depressed? Why do I have so mistrust in my future? Why am I so sad about my past, etc, etc, etc. When we feel these things, that means that your heart needs attention. So go back to your heart and take care of it. And it may mean that their inner blackness has accumulated on top of it, that it needs a cleanse, it needs to be purified, to go back to its purity and beauty and happiness and joy, which is the way that a lot of Canada with data wants to.

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

So what is the prophets of Allah? How do you say that you should do and I should do

00:27:18--> 00:27:18


00:27:20--> 00:27:20

follow up.

00:27:22--> 00:27:29

So you have an option, you always have an option commits something that is hard. You don't surrender to it. You don't say that say

00:27:30--> 00:27:34

I'm evil and wicked. That's a you don't identify yourself with that.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

I'm a thief.

00:27:37--> 00:27:56

Or I'm a fornicator. Right? Or I am this and you have the shaytaan convince you that you are this person you never identify with that sin. When you ask Allah subhana wa Taala to protect you from it and that you are distant or distinct from it. The prophets of knowledge Genesis VEDA when he stops

00:27:57--> 00:28:05

and he repents a step by step for us a lot of forgiveness. And he repents subpoena elbow, his hearts gets polished.

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:10--> 00:28:39

is giving you the treatment in this heavy, what should you do? This is your cleanse. This is the energy right or the we and or the introduction of energy again into your heart introduction of a man again in your heart, how can you climb back up the mountain after you have fallen? The prophets only silom tells you you can come back and the heart can be polished clean, by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala The only thing that you need to do is three things that you stop.

00:28:41--> 00:28:59

And you asked the last panel of data to forgive you. And you go and repent to a loss of panels from what you did, meaning that you regret what you have done. And at least at this moment, the future is in the hands of a lot of data. But at this at this moment, you say I'm never going back to this again.

00:29:00--> 00:29:19

And if between me and Allah subhanaw taala I'm not going back to doing any of this again, I stuck with a law. That is a loss of power data especially if you keep asking Allah subhanaw taala forgiveness a lot takes this is in a way takes that spot and darkness away from your heart and you've had a lot you'll begin to feel it because you'll feel better.

00:29:21--> 00:29:35

Instead of feeling miserable because of what you have done and guilty because of what you have done and down because of what you have done. When you do this. You'll begin to feel better closer to a loss of Hannah Medan and the energy of a man that had left you comes back to you.

00:29:37--> 00:29:42

And the prophet SAW sent him here is telling us really and you will see it in the next heading of the importance of tilbyr

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

until but as you will see from the Prophet Swati cinnamon, just shortly children the next ad tilba is not something that he just going to do once in a while. Toba is needed all the time. Because Toba is a return to the last panel and will

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

Doing things all the time to Panama every day. So we constantly and until but it

00:30:07--> 00:30:44

is an obligation that I'm not going to only say it's the daily obligation for a lot of us It could be an hourly obligation coming back to a loss of power without and asking forgiveness all the time. tilba is this you know, detergent that cleans your heart, that cleans your body that cleans your mind that cleans your life, and keeps bringing you back and back and back to Allah subhanaw taala that she found takes you away keeps bringing you back takes you away keeps bringing you back to constantly fighting with the shaper and you're winning because of tilbyr because you realize that you have to engage in turbo the last panel with that.

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

So let's move now to the next heading.

00:30:48--> 00:30:52

And that is the profits of a low audio system. This is now 29

00:30:54--> 00:30:58

reported by Muslim he said some A lot of you send them in Nevada, you know

00:31:00--> 00:31:03

what you need us to lock in do me me at Tamara.

00:31:05--> 00:31:15

So he said so Allahu Allah, He will send them there's a time a thin shade that comes upon my heart. And I asked Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness 100 times a day.

00:31:17--> 00:31:39

So he thinks a lot he sent him something about himself. He's sharing with you something about himself. But there's a lot of had a lot to learn. He says Enola you want to be there is this line. Explain it as y'all love it comes upon my heart. And for that, I asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to forgive me 100 times a day.

00:31:41--> 00:31:45

So what this hadith is teaching us of how the law is the

00:31:46--> 00:31:51

what distance between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala can do and does, in fact,

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

what is the proper solution I'm seeing in this Hadith,

00:31:57--> 00:31:58

or what is

00:32:01--> 00:32:08

the heart of the prophets of Allah it was Ceylon is the most pious part exists existence.

00:32:09--> 00:32:19

The heart of the prophets always is the most sensitive heart to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the closest heart to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, so there is no argument there.

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam still said that there is this thing that comes

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

and covers his heart. And that is,

00:32:30--> 00:32:41

and the explain and thesis say that the line is also similar to him is a cloud clouds of the sky. A line is also like a cloud.

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

But I would say that the highest is the thinnest veil, or the thinnest covering possible, a very thin, light covering.

00:32:52--> 00:33:14

So there is rain, and there is rain, but cloud, and there is wrong. So some of the amount like for instance, William and Lucas here they see the line is for the prophets of Allah are the ones who are very close to a las panatela they experience like that very thin the thinnest of layers, they experience.

00:33:15--> 00:33:19

They say those who are pious, the second degree they experience.

00:33:21--> 00:33:25

And if you remember an early heady, maybe there was Heidi's number five,

00:33:26--> 00:34:07

or something like that, where we said that the heart of the believer right, every heart of the believer will have something like a cloud that will cover it. And it will leave it if remember that Hadith like that the moon will have a cloud that will cover its shine then we will leave so that's the thing. So these this is for the pious so that's the second degree and they see an Iran is reserved for the non believers. So the vine with a noon is reserved for the prophets of Allah or the people who are very close to Allah subhanho wa Taala where does it come from? You think about it. He said when you when you are very close to Allah subhana wa tada when you're praying when you're

00:34:07--> 00:34:27

reading the Quran making lots of $100,000 very close to Allah subhana wa Tada. That's as not as close as you heart can be. And your Eman is very high. My right and your heart is very responsive, very sensitive to anything that our last panel donor wants from you. This is we're talking about a stage when your immune is very very high at its highest.

00:34:29--> 00:34:33

Now think about it you're done with your a bada and you go back home

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

and you talk to your family and you have to deal with with some urgent matters or you're dealing with your bank account or whatever does your heart stay at the same level. It doesn't stay at the same level. So it must go down your Eman must go down. So the profits of the low audio send them obviously right? When he's worshipping Allah Subhana Allah he reaches heights that no one else reaches and how close he is to Allah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:25

With data, but then you cannot stay in that position all the time, even him some lollies, and it's not possible for him to stay in that position all the time, he has to step up, because he's a human, he has wives, he has children, right? He has the community that he has to deal with problems that he has to deal with. So when you're dealing with all of this, even cannot stay at that top level, it must go down.

00:35:26--> 00:36:07

Because of that distance between you and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Because when you are in solid, there is nothing between you and him. When you're reading the Quran, nothing between you and him. But now when you're dealing with people, yeah, sometimes there is that inconvenience, somebody hurts you, somebody says something about you, you get distracted. So all of this all these are distractions or barriers that can stand between us, and a loss of panel data. So they will take away slightly away from our EMA. And if you might be familiar with one half of the profits of allotey. We send them in the famous story humbler where a worker of the law, I met him one day, and he told him,

00:36:07--> 00:36:41

how are you doing? And he said, Pumbaa has committed talking about himself, I'm hypocrite. And he told me, why are you saying this and humbled? I was one of the scribes of the prophets of the Lord. He was in them and so he's like one of the elites to hover. So we could ask them, Why are you saying this? And he told him, he says, when we were the prophets of Allah, He will send them and he reminds us of the hereafter. We see it we feel it as if we're seeing it with our naked eyes. It's like we I can see that you're after I can see Jenna and have an agenda and help right there in front of them.

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

But then when we leave

00:36:46--> 00:37:12

a person in Walla Walla, Walla, lava when we leave and we are with our families and our money and our businesses, we forget a lot of this thing you know that you know, we enjoyed before. I was in the mess did Michelle let you my email was great. I was in the halaqa. I was in the salon. I was in taraweeh, whatever it is, my human was great. I left domestic went home. A lot of this, you know, a man a lot of this spiritual charge left me.

00:37:13--> 00:37:32

So he says, you know to him, he said, this is niqab. This is hypocrisy. So, you know, the alojado said I also experienced the same thing. So let's go and ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this. So when they went to the prophets of law, you send them and he said, again, it used to be he said, I committed. The Prophet asked him why he repeated the same thing.

00:37:33--> 00:37:56

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says he says why the one who has my soul in his hand if you're going to continue in the same state where you are with me continue in the same state when you leave me and to continue to remember Allah subhana wa tada with the same intensity indeed the angels of Allah will hand shake you on your beds and on the row and in the road

00:37:58--> 00:38:02

What can you handle the baton Bala an hour like this and an hour like that?

00:38:03--> 00:38:42

So imagine your profits a lot of cinemas if it is possible for you it is not possible it is possible for you to continue to be at the same level high level of EMA you'll be able to see the angels of our last panel without a deal extend their hand and cheek meaning that you've reached the levels of the ages of Allah but he's saying a handle on no that is not possible. You have to have an hour like this and an hour like that of course you know some of the Muslims right misunderstand that right? An hour like this and an hour like that. Especially like golden tea days I don't know still today now we're like this in an hour like that mean in our in the midst in an hour where in the bar right?

00:38:42--> 00:38:55

hour like this 10 an hour like that. It's not like that he's not talking about this is talking about himself an hour like this where you are human is so high and you're with me, and you're indignant and talking about Allah Subhana, WA, tada, etc, etc, etc.

00:38:56--> 00:39:01

Can you imagine is exploding, let's say. And then the other hour is you have with your family,

00:39:02--> 00:39:11

and the hour in your business and the hour with your children and the hour with your friends, not in haraam, but in Hana, but your Eman cannot always stay at that level.

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

So this is the balance that the prophets of Allah he was sent him taught us and Islam teaches us

00:39:19--> 00:39:44

nevertheless, right, the prophets of Allah He was Tila right was at such a higher level of EMA that is hard to panela could not bear any distance from Allah subhana wa Adana and because his heart is so pure, he could notice any tennis player coming upon the finished of layer coming upon it just like again if you have a very white cloth

00:39:46--> 00:39:51

right and you know the smallest of contamination contaminations coming on as you can notice it.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

The heart of the prophets have always in him was so pure and so close to Allah subhanaw taala and connected to him that when he's out when he's outside and deep

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

dealing with people and talking to this person and that person, he could feel the thinnest of layers coming upon the heart.

00:40:07--> 00:40:36

And a good heart and his heart to heart could not tolerate distance from the last panel with the honor. So that's why he engages in what he said. So a lot of us in no way need to laugh and umiya tomorrow is the last panel with data for forgiveness. 100 times we'll come back to this in Sharla. But this teaches us this Heidi teaches us that the greater the distance between your heart and a loss of panel data, the more layers will gather around it.

00:40:38--> 00:40:53

And the harder and harder it will get and the closer it is to Allah subhanho wa Taala the more able you are to remove these layers, to get a softer heart and to detect whenever there is something wrong that is happening to your heart and to fix it.

00:40:54--> 00:41:11

So if it is close to the last panel with the other, constantly remembering Allah subhanaw taala the heart will be softer, it will have fewer layers around it and you can fix it easier. And the last panel with the analysis in the Quran just again to highlight distance.

00:41:14--> 00:41:26

If you're away from Allah subhanho wa Taala this will happen to you if you're close to Allah, you will be saved from it. Allah Subhana Allah says Allah me and Linda Dena Amina tuckshop oolitic. Woman, so let me know happy Kadena

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

upon Allah.

00:41:32--> 00:42:08

So the last panel data says, hasn't the time come for the hearts of those who believe to be affected, to be humble, to be affected by Alas, reminders, and the revealed truth and not be like those who received the scripture before or a long time has passed on them. And so their hearts were hardened. And many of them were disobedient to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, meaning Allah gave them the truth gave them the Scripture. And they neglected it did not go back to it disobeyed Allah in it. And they continue to this to do this for a long time for fire

00:42:10--> 00:42:18

alarm disconnect between them and what Allah revealed. So what was the result? For kosaku boom, their hearts hardened.

00:42:19--> 00:42:24

Until a loss of Hanover data said again, if you want to link it to the stone,

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

a loss of honey subhana wa tada says in the front, sort of the

00:42:30--> 00:42:39

future, our shadow, then your hearts hardened after this. And they became like rocks like stones are harder than that.

00:42:41--> 00:42:56

So imagine having a person a human being. And if you're able to actually extract metaphor, metaphorically, but you're able to extract his heart and put it next to a stone, you will find that the stone will have more mercy in it than that person saw.

00:42:58--> 00:43:36

So if you're asking yourself today, how can humans do so many crimes against other humans today? Take their lives take their money, put them in such misery. How could they have had the heart to do this, that's how they can have the heart to do this. Because they don't have hearts. They have stones inside they don't have hearts. But if they feared Allah subhana wa tada and they were close to him, they wouldn't be doing these things to them. Because no one who fears Allah subhana wa tada would be able to say, or do these things to other human beings, whether they are Muslim or not, to another human being, they will never be able to do this. But see what the distance does. distance

00:43:36--> 00:43:39

between you and the distance between you and a loss of power

00:43:40--> 00:43:45

corrupts your heart to the degree that it becomes more useless, right than

00:43:46--> 00:43:47

a stone.

00:43:48--> 00:44:24

And that's why also it's recorded in Muslim that God alone on who he sent for the era of the bussola. These were the reciters of the origin of that city, that important city of Basra. And so 300 of them came to him, all of them had learned. And he said, he told them and this is the advice that he gave them. You are the best among the inhabitants of Basra and the reciters of the Quran among them. So continue to recite it, and don't let too long of a time passed without reciting it. Or your hearts will harden as the hearts of those before you did.

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

So this is a panela This is the advice from the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he understood this. He gathered the best people of Basra, right, like imagine the best people of the city that you're in collecting all of them. And you're saying to them as far as they know you're the best people of this city. you memorize the Quran, you know the Quran. Don't let a long time pass between you and reading this one and learning it. A long time passed between you and your connection to our last panel data because of this happened and you're the best of people you'll turn into your hearts will turn into stone

00:45:01--> 00:45:10

So that's one of the one of the things upon a lot that we have to be worried about, that your heart can become a stone because you're so far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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


00:45:14--> 00:45:20

going back to the heart of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we said that his heart was so pure, he detected that thinnest of layers.

00:45:22--> 00:45:28

And others may not be able to detect it, but he's a lot of cillum detected that and so to remove it,

00:45:29--> 00:45:39

or even to prevent it from coming, the prophets of Allah psyllium will engage in the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah continuously and we will see what he had said.

00:45:40--> 00:45:41


00:45:42--> 00:45:44

Abraham, Allah,

00:45:46--> 00:46:12

shortly inshallah share that with you, Liam became a law he shares with us barriers that the heart can have, that can stand between us and Allah subhana wa Tada, he talks about this line, and the home and Ron, but he also says there are also 10 barriers that can stand between you and Allah Subhana Allah between your heart and Allah subhana wa Tada. So he says, denial of Allah and His names and attributes, this is one worshipping other than Allah

00:46:14--> 00:46:58

creedal innovation, practical innovation, so creating belief or creating practice, major internal sense, like arrogance, envy, and showing off he says, this is a barrier that stands between you and the last panel with major external sense, right, like sort of says that, you know, like alcohol and fornication and all of this and so panela, he put the internal major sense before the major external things as the internal major sins are a greater barrier between you and Allah subhanaw taala than the major external sense. And this is a point that we inshallah talked about, I think in the first meeting, and the introduction, and it's really important to notice, because we are aware of those

00:46:58--> 00:47:05

major sins outward once this haraam and this head on and that head on, but the internal heart is hidden.

00:47:06--> 00:47:25

So maybe you'll find that a lot of us are quick to condemn that external Haram, which deserves condemnation. But we don't think that well I have arrogance in me, I have pride in me, I have react in me, which is far more serious than that external sin. far more serious than that external sin because it goes untreated, undetected.

00:47:26--> 00:47:30

That external sin when someone does it, everybody criticizes him.

00:47:31--> 00:47:42

They shun him. He feels you know, like an outcast in society of believers in cases like an outcast. But when you hide out, you hide on the inside, no one can detect. And it's far more serious

00:47:43--> 00:48:23

than that. Number six, he says the barrier is the barrier of mere minor sense. Then number eight is excessive indulgence and permissible acts, when you engage in too much indulgent, permissible ads, then they take you away from Allah Subhana what's Allah so rather than focus, let's say on a bad or coming close to Allah, you'll be just worried about, you know, my car and my house and my possessions and this semester. There is a there's also a barrier that he's talks about, and he really he's ascending into the thinner barriers, right, the ninth barrier, he says, unawareness that we are created to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and that he deserves our continuous thanks and

00:48:23--> 00:48:29

remembrance. That no matter what you do, and this is what the prophets lie Selim is asking forgiveness from

00:48:31--> 00:48:38

because you can never think Allah subhana wa Tada. enough you can never remember Allah subhanho wa Taala enough. Right.

00:48:39--> 00:48:59

That's why one of the wisdoms they say Why does a person when they leave the bathroom? What do you say when you leave the bathroom? When you Double Fine while you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness, it doesn't say in the Hadith, but some of the alumni you know extracted that wisdom or you know, brought that as it was the Why do you say that when you leave the huddle? What do you say?

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

No, no when you leave.

00:49:05--> 00:49:17

Right That's what it is. Because during this time, I could not remember Allah subhana wa Tada. It's like admitting to Pamela admitting that you need or a lot deserves to be thanked all the time.

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

All the time.

00:49:20--> 00:49:33

You know, the ages of Allah subhana wa Diana, who are worshipping Allah all the time. On the day of judgment, what do they say? mabbott NACA hot diabetic, we did not worship you as you deserve to be worshipped.

00:49:34--> 00:49:57

And the worshiping Allah subhana wa Taala continues not like us continuously and then on the day at that day, they will admit they will say we did not worship you enough. So when you leave supine ally, you're seeing all frantic because of this because you can never remember our last panel without a no brainer and every opportunity every missed opportunity is like a term that you need to ask a lot to forgive you because he did not take advantage of

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

and the 10th one is the

00:50:00--> 00:50:09

barrier he said anything that stands between you and the diligent worship of Allah subhana wa Allah that is also another barrier between you and Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:50:13--> 00:50:24

When your heart is close to Allah, we've always really sensitive. We talked about the promise awesome good detection finished of layers, your thought to be sensitive to the smallest sense.

00:50:26--> 00:50:33

Even though other people are not sensitive to them, we can be sensitive to the smallest sense. And so chromatic

00:50:34--> 00:50:44

or the low annville. Speaking to the tablet, he says in the comic book created by Buhari in the Congo, Tamara Mellon, he added a unique Amina Shah, it could not

00:50:45--> 00:50:54

be Sala la de la mina movie, he says, indeed, you're committing deeds that are thinner in your eyes than here,

00:50:55--> 00:50:58

more insignificant in your eyes than here.

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

But we used to consider them at the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam, to be great destructive since.

00:51:07--> 00:51:10

And just to show you right? The levels.

00:51:11--> 00:51:37

Right. So because of the term of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam The man was highest than the topo is highest. So these things, they looked at them as Oh, that that is not something that any of us should do, and it had done it. So that's a destructive sin was time passes, and taqwa declines, he says, Now you guys are more used to them, when you do it, you consider it to be something small, but this small thing at that time is very big.

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

And they consider that he was just talking about just one generation.

00:51:43--> 00:51:46

Consider now what we're doing compared to what they were doing.

00:51:48--> 00:51:58

But even Subhanallah in your society in the time that you were living in the temple that you acquire the mores that you'd be sensitive to since that before you thought that there was nothing wrong with them.

00:52:00--> 00:52:09

And maybe think about Ramadan, the more time that you spent in the masjid, you come back to your normal life, and the things that were you know, usual to you, would seem

00:52:11--> 00:52:31

sinful This is how could they people say this thing? How could people talk about this thing? How could people look at these things, though, a month before, maybe if you are looking at them without thinking or a second thought, but because you've distanced yourself from them, acquired more taqwa when you are away from sin, you became more sensitive to it. So that also one of the lessons of the heady

00:52:33--> 00:53:11

so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asking a lot of forgiveness. What did he exactly say? In another narration, by an indifferent Heidi it tells us if not tomorrow, the Allahu anhu says he says, we used to count that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say in one sitting down in one gathering when he's sitting in one sitting and a bit fiddly what to baniya in the cantata verbal Rahim. Mia, Tamara ojala rubbish. Allah forgive me and accept my repentance in the context of a new or the person who accepts repentance.

00:53:12--> 00:53:16

You are the person who accepts repentance, and you are the Most Merciful.

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

So 100 times the prophets of Allah Allah will send them would say, in one sitting like mad, let's say for instance, Allah Allah half an hour an hour that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would say it's a bit fiddly to Bali in again.

00:53:32--> 00:53:38

In another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say the only difference would be the end his or her food instead of

00:53:40--> 00:53:49

okay 100 times before he stands up from that gathering, or bitterly What about 100 times?

00:53:51--> 00:53:54

Why would the profits have low and he was sending me say this?

00:53:55--> 00:53:58

A, because he wants to remove that layer.

00:54:00--> 00:54:01

How do you remove that layer?

00:54:02--> 00:54:06

What's the cause of this layer? That thing that hide what's the cause?

00:54:11--> 00:54:11


00:54:12--> 00:54:17

distance from where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is distanced from Allah subhana wa Tada. Right.

00:54:18--> 00:54:20

So how do you remove it?

00:54:22--> 00:54:23

Bring yourself closer to Allah.

00:54:24--> 00:54:38

How do you bring yourself closer to Allah Subhana Allah you remember him and you remember him as often as you can. And you remember him specifically with forgiveness because they're there you're humbling yourself before Allah subhanaw taala saying yeah love there is nothing that I can do that is enough.

00:54:40--> 00:54:55

There is no thanks that I can give you that is enough. There is no remember is that I can remember you with that is enough. So you're like accept accept this from me. Because you are right and forgive me. And when you do this, that layer starts going away.

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

So the thing in sha Allah because I want to stop now inshallah

00:55:00--> 00:55:44

thing that we want to learn from this is this supplication, this remembrance from the prophets of Allah Allah uses, the more distance you have with a law firm between you and Allah Subhana. Allah, the greater, and the thicker the layer is between you and him, you want to remove it, you come back to a loss of Hanover data and one of the easiest thing that you can do to soften your heart is to follow the center of the profits of the law to see them and to repeat as much as you can, at least at least every day 100 times. If you don't want to stay the whole thing got a bit fiddly or bitterly, bitterly. A structural law, structural or structural law and with awareness, acknowledging

00:55:44--> 00:55:53

what you're saying, asking a lot for something expecting something a loss of power, or you can say the whole thing, or bitterly what to value in

00:55:55--> 00:56:03

business purposefully or to Bali in the context of him. And you can vary it sometimes of Mr. Lee or to Bali, in the context of

00:56:05--> 00:56:07

Bali in the context of

00:56:08--> 00:56:16

so this is what we have in Sharla for today. There are quick questions, inshallah we can take them

00:56:17--> 00:56:23

or otherwise, inshallah we'll adjourn for tonight and meet you next week. Are there any questions?

00:56:29--> 00:56:31

Okay, no, promise I'll answer and go ahead and

00:56:38--> 00:56:39

while eating

00:56:49--> 00:56:51

on the dinner table, right, and

00:56:53--> 00:57:35

it's better that you leave it, it's better that you leave it because what it does is that it stands it really isolates you from human contact, and especially family contact and family conversation. So what it does is that this technology really is atomizing or it's separating people into these islands, where they don't really have human to human contact, they have virtual contact but not really human to human contact, and they're very distant from the closest people to them family so you don't know what is going with them you don't know how to help them and so you lose all of this so definitely I mean the parents should set some guidelines when you come to the dinner table there

00:57:35--> 00:58:05

are no phones, the no checking messages, right there's no internet none of this you sit and you talk to each other and you have icontact and you engage in conversations and that is what is best and you have to train your children like that I mean, reconsider whether they should have phones for to begin with or not and then train them that there should be times before the Salah right after the Salah when going visiting relatives or you have to be keep away from your phone, but not be so addicted and dependent on it. So definitely

00:58:08--> 00:58:10

not inshallah, so they don't

00:58:12--> 00:58:15

really want to bother you in

00:58:16--> 00:58:16

a while.

00:58:18--> 00:58:23

So you're asking a lot for forgiveness, and to accept your Toba why because he is a

00:58:24--> 00:58:32

bit fiddly once in a while. And the other one you just put a little bit early

00:58:33--> 00:58:56

in the wobble of so inshallah your mission for next week in sha Allah tried to say this 100 times every day, because now we will try to say this 100 times every day. We ask Allah Subhana Allah the Most Merciful in it to bring life and amen to our hearts and to remove any barriers between us and him Armenia Salaam Alaikum alaikum
