Episode Notes

Explanation of the 30th hadith in the Heart Therapy Series:

The Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said:

(Whosoevers concern is the world, Allah will scatter his affairs for him and place poverty between his eyes, and he will only receive from the world that which has been written for him. And whosoevers intention is the Hereafter, Allah will gather his affairs for him, put richness in his heart, and the world will be forced to come to him)

Reported by ibn Majah (4105) and al-Tirmidhi (2456). Al-Iraqi declared its chain to be good, and al-Albani declared it to be sahih (Sahih ibn Majah 4105)

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

So, now we have the windows

00:00:07--> 00:00:29

that have the metal one is the you know one stuff on our window I mean surely unforeseen our sciatica Marina, Mayor de la Fernando de la da, da da da, da da da da da da Allahu la sharika Juan Mohammed Abdullah sudo. So the 30th haddie in sha Allah, how do you fulfill the 30th Howdy.

00:00:30--> 00:00:40

And this Headey can handle analysis, two thirds of the vote, two thirds of the book hamdulillah. So we'll have 10 haddix left.

00:00:42--> 00:00:43

And in this heavy,

00:00:44--> 00:01:09

we will learn beyond the law, the value of the dunya. And these are topics that we talked about before but you really don't have or never, we'll never have enough talking about the importance of the hereafter the value of the dunya the real value of the dunya and most importantly for us here in this series about the heart, how to gain how to develop a rich heart

00:01:11--> 00:01:11

for dinner.

00:01:13--> 00:01:23

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam here said in what if no magic and autonomy the narrated, he said mechanically dounia hemma

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

ferok Allahu alayhi

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

wa Jalla zakharova ie

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

when ammirati Yaki mina dounia illa makuti Bella

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

woman can Attila Shiro, Sunita,

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

Gemma Allahu Allahu amaura paja Tina Who

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

was it? Who dunia wa Halima?

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

Okay,

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

is that clear? Okay, so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said

00:01:58--> 00:02:30

the one whose intention or the one who's Golem and Cana, mechanically dounia him who's ever concern is the world. Allah will scatter his affairs for him. For Ali Ambrose carries affairs for him, watch Allah subhanahu beignet and he will place his poverty between his eyes while I'm here to him in a dunya in the makuti Bella and nothing will come to him from this dunya except that which has been written for him.

00:02:31--> 00:02:57

So the prophets, a lot of your symptoms, talking about three things that will happen if his concern is the dunya three things will happen for Allah Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala was a little scattered his concerns and scatter his affairs for him. That's the first one. Jonathan Obaid says poverty will be between his eyes. And the only part of the dooney that he's going to get is the part of the laws written for him. Nothing more.

00:02:58--> 00:03:07

Then he says that's the opposite. That's the difference. That's the other bottom and Canada feel to me. I'm the one who, whose intention is

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

the hereafter.

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

Right? Meaning a loss of power with

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

three things happen? Gemma Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala will unite all of his concern for and bring them all together,

00:03:22--> 00:04:04

will explain and show that means, or Jonathan know who people be, and he will make him rich in heart. So he's the winner, his being rich or affluence? Where is it? It's in the heart. Because you can be rich in hand in your hand in what you possess, but poor inside, so a lot of profits a lot. Instead, I'm saying that a lot will make him rich, where it really matters in his heart, what to do with him and the world will come to him, whether it likes it or not humiliated humbled. That's how we will we'll come to so three things, right, in opposition to three things based on the intention.

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

So the first thing that we want to ask ourselves is

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

what is the goal of my life? Do I have a goal in my life? And what is that?

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

If you ask yourself, really?

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

What is my life's goal? Why am I here? And what am I doing? And I'm not asking really here for a rehearsed answer. You know that if you ask someone even you know our children come to life they are well educated in Islam, you say what is why are you here? What What is your life goal is to worship Allah Subhana Allah data, we know this right? we memorize this. But that's different than the real answer that you actually are living. But what is the goal in your life? Why are you living? Why do you wake up every day? What motivates you to go to work or to do whatever they want to do on the weekend weekdays having effect what is it

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

Why do you have a family? Why do you go to work? Why you do? Do you develop your skills? Why do you go to school, etc, etc? What is your goal?

00:05:09--> 00:05:18

Now success, right? I mean, so people want success, people want the dunya. So what do we want to stay really is that for a lot of people that we're going to say most of humanity,

00:05:19--> 00:05:35

they belong to the first category, not to the second category, that the profits, a lot of cinema talked about mechanically Dunia hemlo, the owner whose intention is the dounia, not the most of humanity belong to that category, not to the other category.

00:05:36--> 00:05:55

But let's before talking about that talk about the fact that really what characterizes us as humans, is having a goal and having an intention, you can't live a life, or at least you shouldn't live a life without a goal. Because if you had a life without a goal, that's an empty life. Can you imagine having a life of no goals?

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

No goals at all. And that's why you're why some of us

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

get depressed. Why do we get depressed sometimes because we don't have goals.

00:06:07--> 00:06:15

I'm not, I'm not striving for something, I'm not being challenged by anything. So if you want to really actually have a life that is worth living,

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

and the prophets of the Lord, he would send them here to testify to this.

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

He said mentioned this hadith before that the truest of names that humans can have, or how to

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

remember this.

00:06:32--> 00:06:37

The best of names are the best of names of the last panel without the likes of the law and

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

the prophets, Allah says the truest of names have had it.

00:06:43--> 00:07:19

And had it is the intentar, or Harris is the door, the one who does all the time. And hammer is the intended one with an intention with a goal. So you think about it every day, you always you know, from the time that you wake up to the time that you go to bed, you always have an intention, you always have a goal and you're always following up on those goals or that intention, I want to eat, I want to go here I want to go to work, it's always a plan followed by an intent, intention, followed by action plan followed by action. So reality tells us that to be a human being is to have a goal.

00:07:20--> 00:07:36

And not to have a goal is to live a wasted life. So one of the things that you want to really teach, especially the young, to have a goal, to develop a goal, and to nurture that goal, and to work for it so that your life could be worthwhile.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

And the fact that you see a lot of people wasting their time, young and old, why

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

no real goal in life.

00:07:46--> 00:08:00

No real, like no inspiring goal in your life. It could be the goal that everybody has, they just want to work to earn enough money, but not uninspiring goals. So you want an inspiring goal in your life. So this is one of the first lessons inshallah

00:08:01--> 00:08:17

so if you ask us, what is your goal and you ask humanity, what are your goals, they'll come up with very different answers. I want fame, I want fortune, I want recognition, I want to help humanity there are different types of goals and you can characterize them in very different ways.

00:08:20--> 00:08:47

But the best way, or the best goal that you can have, is to work for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to work for the sake of the hereafter. That's the best goal that you can have. Every other goal you will have is the minor goal compared to this goal, every other goal that you have, can be in the service of this goal. But each person can only have one ultimate goal.

00:08:49--> 00:08:57

One final goal, you can have two final goals you have one final goal and this final goal can be either the junior or the

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

the junior this slide or the next

00:09:02--> 00:09:11

right and they cannot be both at the same time. They cannot be both at the same time, because both of them are ultimate, and they contradict each other.

00:09:12--> 00:09:54

The dunia for instance will ask you what be selfish. Look for your own benefit. Right? Get as much money as you can. Don't worry about the rights of others who were as the asset or as a loss of Hannah with Allah will speak to you differently, will set different priorities for you other than the priorities that the dounia or desire or the shaytaan will set. So the priorities are really different. The outcomes are different. the sacrifices that are required are different. So you need to have a final goal. And that final goal of the ACA I called it two things. One is all encompassing and the other one is uplifting. That's what you know, distinguishes the goal of the Escalade, all

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

encompassing meaning what it covers everything. Nothing escapes it.

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

Why are you drinking? Why are you sitting here right now? Where are you going to sleep? Why do you eat? Why do you study why you work? What do you have children? everything, every small step in your life can be for the surface of that goal. So that's something, it covers everything. The dooney, on the other hand, can be most encompassing, but it's not all encompassing, because there will be some goals that you think it doesn't serve me in the dunya. Why should I worry about it, so you won't do it? Whereas for the Acura, it covers everything this life and the next.

00:10:32--> 00:10:36

The second thing is that the Acura as a goal is uplifting.

00:10:37--> 00:10:59

Right? What is what do we mean that it's uplifting? It improves your character and proves your manners that jr doesn't do that the world as as a as a result, as an outcome as a goal doesn't do that the dounia tells you get it whatever way you can live, if you want, because there's no moral standard to the dunya. Is there?

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

Just the journey as the dunya desire as it is doesn't have any moral standard to it? No, not really, the only thing that works for you is

00:11:09--> 00:11:50

the end justifies the means. If I want a and I have to break this and kill that to get to a I will do that. That's why in the world of business, right, you will see them trampling the rights fight and compromising the rights of so many people. And as long as they can get away with it, they will do it. And if they are caught, of course they fake contrition. And we're sorry. And here are compensations. But that only happens because of public image and public pressure. The public doesn't really you know, support and is not keen on people deceiving them. So they revolt against that. But otherwise, if we can sneak it, if we can deceive, then we will deceive because what I care about is

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

profit. That's the bottom line profit.

00:11:54--> 00:12:05

So any person who operates according to that principle has really no standards, except one of making profits and self benefit. How can that be the same goal as the

00:12:07--> 00:12:50

work it tells you to sacrifice for the sake of your brother and your sister to put a lot before your own desire to put to put their hereafter before immediate benefits? How can that this be done? So they're not the same? So they contradict each other? So the answer is uplifting. Meaning that whatever you want to do something a lot of data tells you do the best, not the worst, the best, even if it's not the best for you in the moment, but the best next by now momentarily, but later or when you meet him, no do it now. So it's uplifting. And it's also corrected. That's one thing I forgot. It's corrected, meaning the accurate allows you to evaluate correctly, your goal and the steps that

00:12:50--> 00:12:58

you've taken towards that goal. So the best thing that you can have is the as the ultimate and final goal.

00:12:59--> 00:13:05

Like in religion on some religious studies, they call it the ultimate concern. What is your ultimate concern?

00:13:07--> 00:13:25

thing that you worry about the most. And so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tells you why he's actually speaking this Hadith, or an ultimate concern, not about the dunya that I like the dunya and sometimes it takes me away but I still I have a man in my heart. Stop talking about that. He's talking about the dounia that overwhelms you.

00:13:26--> 00:13:37

A Dunia hambone will see another ad filled with ads to it but this is what you care about. Nothing stands in its way everything is sacrificed for it take that as a junior level.

00:13:38--> 00:13:49

Lots of Hana which Allah really declares in the Quran and more than when I heard that you cannot have the dunya and the Astra as both ultimates intentions. Allah subhana wa Tada. It says in the Quran,

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

men can a regal higher the dunya was enough to hand ofili him.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

Latina Lisa

00:13:59--> 00:14:36

Wahhabi Tommaso now How about illuma? Can we have a new one so Allah subhana wa tada says, the one who desires and wants he's working he only worries about this dunya and it's a dormant, it's beauty. You are feeding him and opia we will repay them whatever they had worked for in this dunya won't be had that life hustle not gonna deprive them you're working to be successful will make you successful in this dunya you want money will make it will make you rich in the sooner that's what you're working for. A lot will gives you it will give you what you deserve in it. You're not going to deprive you of anything that is yours. Then Allah subhanaw taala says what political arena least

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

among

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

those people will have nothing in the hereafter but

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

enough.

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

Jana that's that's what they will have. Why

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

Why is that? Why is that the case?

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Yeah, he didn't talk about for the asset did not worry about the asset. I did not invest anything

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

All the investments were here

00:15:03--> 00:15:14

all in the investment for this sake. So when he moved to another one yeah, now naturally found I have no investments over there. And he meets Allah subhana wa tada with no deeds.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

And Allah subhana wa tada says in another area man can you read

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

this is

00:15:23--> 00:15:40

the one who wants the harvest of the camera, we will increase him in harvest. Imagine yourself like a farmer, right, and you're tilling and you're planting the land and it's time now time for you to harvest. So lots of panel data is speaking about the rewards of the athlete on the dooney as this harvest, you plant.

00:15:41--> 00:15:59

This is really what it is, when you do a good deed or you do a bad deed, you're planting a seed you planted in on earth or in the earth, then after some time, it will grow and then there will be time for harvest. And then you will get to take what you planted what you've done.

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

So of Allah subhanaw taala says you want the harvest of the data, we will increase your harvest, and the one who wants the harvest of the dunya we will give him from the harvest of the dunya. But we have no portion of the

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

see the difference between the two? And what does it mean when I lost a panda with data say that if he wants the harvest of the accurate we will increase them in harvest.

00:16:26--> 00:16:35

It means that a lot of our data does not give you what you deserve that as you planted one seed, they'll give you one plant, what does it give you

00:16:36--> 00:16:46

many more soon as it loafie healthy right we will increase you and your harvest. And on top of that we will aid you and support you from beginning to end.

00:16:47--> 00:17:31

So what is your intention, you know, my intention is to please Allah subhana wa Tada. My intention, right is to follow the law to send and my intention is to help other people. So from that time, till the time that you reap the fruit, you get the fruit of what I would ever you have done, a lot of panatela is supporting you, and is guiding you and is aiding you right and is directing your staff. So this is what it means does it loafie healthy, but as for the other person who wants to do it again, because that's not what they were working for. That's not what they were interested in. You wake up in the morning you go to bed, the only thing that you're thinking about and planning for and

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

sad for or happy for is the dunya

00:17:34--> 00:17:39

and the answer is either an afterthought or you don't even think about it at all.

00:17:41--> 00:18:02

Then if you're a person like that, then you can come back to yourself and say well what is really my intention? Why am I living again beyond the rehearsed answer? Why am I really living because my life is not telling me that I'm living for a loss of Hannah with that. Love is telling me that I'm living for the dunya and I only worry about the dunya and I only care about it.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

So

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

Allah subhana wa tada says also in another IRA only

00:18:12--> 00:18:33

just that part of the mentioned mechanic read it the agenda will see her Manisha only mentally. Who wants this immediate this immediate line? We will give him Okay, a gentle opia we will give him but what we want to ever we want. So I was telling him and telling everybody who's working for the dunya

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

your risk is already what set

00:18:39--> 00:19:05

your risk was already set. Your risk was already planned your provisions with a loss of panel data already written down. So it just testifies to what our profits of a lot of them is saying in this particular meeting Amina dunia in the Makati Bella, the only part of our part of the journey they will come to them is what the potter is written for him. Right? Even though his entire intention is the dunya

00:19:07--> 00:19:44

his entire intention meaning that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is telling him you've put all of your power and focus on life, all of it you're invested in for the sake of the dunya Don't you know that whatever you do, that that extra effort, but you need to work, we're not talking about that you need to work you need to put some effort. prophets Allah said he was talking about that extra effort, extra obsession with the dunia extra fixation on the dounia you can either say the worship of the dunya is it Don't you know that that extra is not going to bring you anything extra

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

except pain and trouble and misery. So that extra is not bringing extra at least not the extra two that you want some bringing extra benefits not extra money because it's already set CRS

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

Running, running, running, running after all of this Why? And Allah has already said, This is what you're going to get. Why don't you give it to the

00:20:08--> 00:20:13

so this is what the prophets a lot is a demon of dunya in the makuti balance already written for him.

00:20:14--> 00:20:21

Right? So this is exactly what the prophets, although cillum is saying there, and that's what the ayah is saying. And

00:20:23--> 00:20:31

as we said, the person who will be obsessed with the dunya only brings misery to himself or to herself.

00:20:32--> 00:20:40

Why is that? Because you're only obsessed with the dunya. Any obsession with the dunya is built on greed.

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

Greed?

00:20:44--> 00:20:47

And can a greedy person ever have enough?

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

No.

00:20:49--> 00:21:01

Right? It's always built on greed. Whereas a loss of power to Allah wants the dunya to be built on contentment, and happiness with what Allah has given you. Because it's supposed to be a

00:21:03--> 00:21:37

Buddha is a type of food that you eat in order for it to sustain you on a journey. So that you'd be delivered to your destination, this is a Buddha, right? You know, like, when you're sometimes you're traveling, you don't have time, you know, to spend this restaurant, you're not gonna it's not, you're not going to go to a buffet and sit in all you can eat, you don't have time for it, you want to start by, you know, maybe a fast food, you take something very quick, and you continue on your journey. That's the Buddha. Okay, enough to reach. But on the other hand, by

00:21:38--> 00:21:55

Bri or obsession with this dunya, or desire for this dunya is built on greed. And first of all, we will never be happy with what you have. Because as soon as you possess it, they announced that there is a new iPhone. Okay, a better features. Okay, mine is old. Now, what am I supposed to do with this?

00:21:56--> 00:22:02

You may convince yourself that it's still good. But greed tells you That's better.

00:22:03--> 00:22:44

Can an iPhone is a very simple, modest example. You know, there's our new cars, and there are bigger houses, and they are better professions. And greed devours your life. Greed tells you that you're not good enough, or what you have is not good enough until you possess something else. And once you think that you reached Oh, somebody else's richer, right? You know, that list that they publish all the time, the richest man in the world, right? And sometimes you think I'm number one, then you dropped to number two, what happened? Somebody else, you know, got better investments. You dropped a number three. Right? And maybe now for you go from the top 10. When you were very happy, at least

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

that you were in top 10 you're now in your new top 15?

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

How? You're what you're a billionaire. You're a billionaire, yourself?

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Are you sad?

00:22:58--> 00:23:32

Because now the standards are different. Like somebody would look at him and you say, Are you crazy, just give me 100,000 I'll be the happiest person in the world. Just give me without just crumbs. Just throw some breadcrumbs at me. And then I'll be the happiest person, that person has billions. And he said, Why? Because now the standards, because you lose interest in what you have, it becomes usual by a person who marries beauty queen model, right? After some time becomes just average, because he sees her every day becomes average.

00:23:33--> 00:23:42

Okay, so we start looking for something else. That's great. Speed does not leave you with a shred of happiness.

00:23:43--> 00:23:50

Right? So that's how it is. And then on top of that, are you the only one who desires the dunia

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

or only one who's greedy? Other people want what you have.

00:23:56--> 00:24:10

Other people are competing to the same position for the same money. So you're thinking to yourself, yeah, I got it, I got promoted, or I have these billions I have these investments, but so and so is working to get what I have is working, gunning for my position.

00:24:11--> 00:24:21

Okay, so we're always worried about your possessions, always worried about your house. But whatever you gather, they want it, they want to take it away from me. And I also want what they have.

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

So I'm going to fight them and they will fight me.

00:24:26--> 00:24:39

So there is no happiness. So the person who's obsessed with the dounia. Right, is a person who's living really in the most miserable condition that can be imagined. And that's what that type of desire does to you.

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

Because you're distinct from the last panel with the other and instead, you said I just want this

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

and worrying about the unions to penalize one of the most painful things you know in our life and all of us worry about it. All of us worry about it. You worry about the future. You sad about the past. You're troubled with yourself.

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

current problems, you're always worried about this. So a person you'll find them you know, under this, you know, incredible weight of worry about the future, I don't know what's going to happen to my treatment, I don't know if I'm going to be able to continue with this job. I don't know if I will get fired. This, this, this, this, or you think about your past and all the opportunities that you've missed them that you've lost, and only I could have done this, I'd be better today only if I've taken advantage. And you find yourself under such stream of negative thoughts about past future. And also there's current pain, I current problem, you think that you're about to collapse?

00:25:44--> 00:26:21

So you find us as the persons of Panama, not only physically but mentally extremely fatigued and tired? So I had enough of this, Sonia, why, why am I alive? I have enough of this dunya because I'm so focused on it, and it's making me miserable, I cannot find any comfort coming from it. Whenever I think I got something that dunia itself tells me you're gonna lose it, or then I lose it. Whatever the dunya gives me something. What happens? comes and takes it away. And even when I have it, what is Allah? Did the prophets of Allah, how do you send them say Jalla chakra who by nine, meaning

00:26:23--> 00:26:29

he puts his poverty between this eyes, we talked about this before having poverty between your eyes, what is what is

00:26:31--> 00:26:34

in India, wherever you look, you only see poverty,

00:26:35--> 00:27:24

you only see that you're going to be poor, even if you have a lot. But you only see that you are poor, you don't have enough, your needs are not satisfied or that you're going to be like that. So imagine how to lie the difficulty of a person living a life surrounded with poverty. And that nothing that he can get nothing that he can gain can ever satisfy. Here, this is something new. Why aren't you happy? Because I only see poverty. And I've lost interest in everything around me. And if this satisfies for an hour or two or a day or two, it loses its flavor after it loses its appeal after. And you're back to the same thing. Maybe I mentioned this before, right? We talked about this

00:27:24--> 00:27:50

is true even for any type of happiness, a lot of lottery winners right when they win the lottery, I talked about this before, they said that they register an increase right in happiness. But that increase in happiness doesn't last right few days or a few months. And then level of happiness. When they measure it again goes back declines, declined declines, and it goes back to the same level. It was before they gained these millions,

00:27:51--> 00:27:51

the same.

00:27:52--> 00:27:57

And then you would say to yourself, if I only have these millions, I'll be happy for the rest of my life.

00:27:58--> 00:28:30

Right? If I only get this car, I'll be happy for the rest. If I only marry this woman marry that I'll be happy for the rest of my life. But it's all done here. I'm not saying that these things especially when they are connected to a lot don't provide happiness they do. But dunia on its own does not. So it increases your happiness but then you come back and at the same level it says if it didn't happen, so you need something else. And then you need something else and you need something else right? And that explains what the dooney addiction that we have

00:28:31--> 00:28:42

to do any addiction from we have broke purchasing one thing after the other or listening to one piece of music after the other or watching this thing after the other it's an addiction because

00:28:43--> 00:28:49

you don't want the down. You're always want to be happy and you don't want the down and you always want to be distracted.

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

And one of the

00:28:53--> 00:29:08

problems of focusing on the dunya so much right is that it was what the last panel with the ANA says Allah says founded Amendola and the cleaner water muted inland higher the dunya Delica blow whom in an inner battle Adam will be mumbled answer in a

00:29:10--> 00:29:22

minute. He tells his prophets Allah La to send them in the whole answer turn away from whoever turns his back on our reminder and desires not except the worldly life, that is their limits of knowledge.

00:29:23--> 00:29:50

So lots of panel data is describing the person who's focused only on the dounia as ignorant, then you can go home this is your this is their limited knowledge. All because the only desire that dounia the law, knowledge is very limited and superficial. They're ignorant. So Allah Subhana Allah says turn away from them. Because that's the only thing that they desire. When you talk to them when you speak about the truth, do they listen?

00:29:52--> 00:29:52

No.

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

That's why he says,

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

Well, I've added Amendola and the cleaner he turned away from our

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

reminder for our remembrance and only desires the dunya. So, if the dunia has inhabited this entire heart, there is no place in this for a loss.

00:30:11--> 00:30:19

So, if Allah Subhana Allah is saying, you know, okay, you have to do this with your money and you have to do this with your time, but my desire is telling me different

00:30:21--> 00:30:59

and I'm putting my desire before Allah subhana wa Tada. That means that I'm rejecting the truth. That's why you reject the truth. And when I'm rejecting the truth from Allah subhana wa Tada. And I'm turning away from him, because of the dunya. So a lot of Dallas's, if someone is like that is turning away from is running away from me because of the dunya turn away from them. Because there's no benefit as long as they are in that situation. There's no benefits in talking to them. They have to take that first step of saying, I want to change the dunya is not everything I have to create a space in my heart for Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:31:01--> 00:31:02

So

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

the other type of person that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talks about in the Hadith a woman can appeal to Nita, the one whose intention is the hero, and lots of panels either as the ISS and as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in this Hadith, a lot of promise 10 support a lot of problems to support. Jim Allahu emra. They know what to do he or Allah, Allah will gather his affairs for him.

00:31:33--> 00:31:38

Put richness in his heart, and the junior will come to him. Even if unwillingly.

00:31:40--> 00:31:43

What does that mean? collects all of his affairs for him.

00:31:46--> 00:31:52

means that we have in this dunya how many concerns do you have in this dunya? How many things do you have? Do you worry about in the studio?

00:31:54--> 00:32:14

A lot, right? There is rent, there is insurance, there's the car, there's the spouse, there's the child, there's a lot of things right. And if you think about it, you can almost go crazy how I'm gonna take care of all of this. So if a lot of our data sees that you are coming close to him,

00:32:15--> 00:32:19

Allah subhana wa, tada will bring all of these concerns together

00:32:20--> 00:32:47

and unite them as much as as possible all together so that you can take care of them more easily, and finish with them more easily. So you're not distracted by them. So you find yourself to kind of know you're not spending as much time on them. And things get solved by themselves sometimes not complicated, and something takes care of another. And Allah subhanaw taala blocks the way you have some distractions so that they don't come your way. Why.

00:32:48--> 00:32:51

So law does not want to distract you.

00:32:53--> 00:33:23

Allah does not want to distract you. You know what that reminds you of? Let's suppose for instance, that you have an accountant that you haven't come to work on your accounts very important to work, right. What do you want to do? You want to prevent as many distractions as possible, just focus on the numbers, please, right? Just focus on you're not going to let anybody cry anybody shout your home, right? You're gonna bring him what you need to. Here's the coffee's gonna cake, whatever you want. Just focus on the numbers. Take care of this. no distractions, because you want it to take care of what you like.

00:33:24--> 00:33:48

What is important to you? A lot of Hamilton Of course doesn't need us but Allah loves what you do what you do. Allah loves your focus. Your focus is on Allah, on what pleases Allah on the event of a loss of power, Dallas, so he does not want you to be distracted, taken away from it. So he removes these distractions and makes your concerns in the dunya minimal.

00:33:49--> 00:33:50

Does that make sense?

00:33:52--> 00:34:05

So you're not preoccupied? This isn't about this and so a lot of take care of it. I'll take care of it. So that explains the other one what to do while you're out in the world. We'll come to him Well, he urashima

00:34:07--> 00:34:19

what are the world right likes it or not? The image here really is a dounia that had been humbled and subdued by who by a loss of Hannah with Allah saying go to this individual go to

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

the first one has to run after?

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

Yeah. So the dunya really is like they say it's like your shadow. And if you try this urine after your shadow, what does it do?

00:34:34--> 00:34:42

It runs away. You never catch it, it runs away, right? Okay, you run away from it. Not, not after it's run away from it

00:34:43--> 00:34:47

chases you, follows you, right. So the dunya is like that you run away from it

00:34:49--> 00:34:53

runs after you. You run after it runs away from you.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Right. And of course, what I want to say here is we're talking here again, just just to

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

make this clear. We're talking here about the dounia as this sole concern and the actor as the sole concern, otherwise, a person whose interest in the accuracy and loss of data can have the dounia as well, as long as it's not taking them away from Allah, he can have the dunya. Right? So they mentioned that delden Sulayman, Allah He was Ceylon, they were kings.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

They were kings. What is the king hell?

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

What kings have

00:35:36--> 00:36:13

everything? They were kings, but that but they were not slaves of the dunya. Right. Or as as the claim says, the dunya was not in their hearts, they didn't it was in their hands. So you can do whatever you want with it your heart, Allah Subhana Allah God. So you can have some of the setup, right? Some of the sahaabah were rich some of the setup or rich of the live room, robotic, elated, lucid, and others. They were rich. But they were in rich, arrogant, right? Rich, proud. No, they were rich, they took that money they did with it, what Allah subhana wa Taala wants and if they use it for something, they use it for something that enhances their

00:36:15--> 00:36:30

brings them closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Not distance from Allah closer to Allah. So this is the top of dunya that you have something wrong with it, it's harder for you. But it's if it's a dunya that is distracting you from Allah, that's what we're talking about. That's the report that we're talking about. So I lost

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

him saying that

00:36:36--> 00:36:38

he intends the

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

citizens of the dunya is the dunya will run after him

00:36:44--> 00:37:26

will come to him because Allah commands it to come to him. Like what, like what happened with the a lot of the onomah right, he'd be Ireland as far as I didn't even have to be like a scholar, for instance, for you to fill their fulfill this description or that criteria, but the he will be and the Silesia would come requesting permission to meet with him, the halifa would send him money and he will send the money back. Right. People will come and they want to kill you know, praise Him and honor Him and He will send them back. All of the dounia comes to come to them and they send it back. Why is that because their intention was lust panda without their intention was Allah subhana wa tada

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

when and when the people see that they respect and honor this person.

00:37:32--> 00:38:12

Of course, you shouldn't make your intention that Oh, I'm gonna pretend to be seeking the appeal so that people will think that I am a good man and then they will just give me everything that I want. your intention units upon Allah can change very easily so you shouldn't never ever have that intention. But Allah Subhana Allah wants to show you seek the act of honor will give you the dunya and the Pharaoh and at that time, you wouldn't even want the dunya you say like humble Rahim Allah. What do you became so famous and arrived, he just started desiring death? Because he considered that to be fitna all this dunya coming to him. You consider that to be fitness as I wish I was not

00:38:12--> 00:38:27

famous. I wish I wish I was an anonymous person. No one knows about me. And when he gave an advice to someone says what advice could you give me says anonymity, anonymity, be anonymous, don't be known for it to be to be sure I was afflicted with fame.

00:38:28--> 00:38:35

Right? So this is a person thing that we desire most in this dunya today, globally is famous.

00:38:36--> 00:38:53

We want to be famous. Hammer, hammer hammer, Allah is saying, run away from it as much as you can it corrupts your intention. It grabs your Eman, it corrupts your Tableau run away from it. Because you will start doing for the sake of the audience. And anyone who likes you, right? Because you don't want to lose faith.

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

You think because I'm famous

00:38:59--> 00:39:07

that I have power, right? Not me. I'm not talking only I'm saying that I'm talking about someone, right? You think that because he's famous, he has power, right?

00:39:10--> 00:39:33

Because I don't dare say something that will make you upset with me. And if you're upset with me or stop listening to me, like if I'm an actor or whatever, whatever it is. You stop listening to me, stop watching what I'm doing. You stopped buying what I'm selling, and I will lose my pain. So I'll have always to keep you happy. Right? I always have to keep you happy. So I become

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

your slave.

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

I become your slide become your servant. I have to say what you want of me. And even if sometimes I pretend to be brave, and I speak in my mind, I'm speaking really what other people will consider to be fashionable. No one who is famous and is worried about his fame will actually stand and say the absolute truth that they believe and they will do that.

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

We can, politicians, definitely right, but everybody else, they never do this.

00:40:08--> 00:40:08

So

00:40:10--> 00:40:14

to confirm all of this, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says in another Hadith,

00:40:15--> 00:40:34

in a lot of Hulu, we're gonna add them to follow only a vanity amla, sada Zenon was difficult. He says, Oh child of Adam, devote yourself to my worship. And I will fill your heart with richness and fulfill your needs and poverty, remove your poverty and fulfill your need.

00:40:37--> 00:40:40

If you don't do military cashola

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

if you don't do this, I will fill your hands with work

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

and not satisfy your poverty.

00:40:50--> 00:41:03

So here's what almost kind of data is saying in this hospital policy. Right? He says devote yourself to my worship, and I will take care of you basically saying, I'll take care of you just devote yourself to my worship, worship me.

00:41:04--> 00:41:23

And again, if you don't know, should I like worship a lot, 24 hours a day. That's not was wasn't the sermon of the prophets always in the bride and was not the son of his Baba. so bad. So of course, but it say devote yourself to my worship, worry about what I need you to worry about. And then I'll make your heart satisfied. And you will not have a need.

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

And you ask yourself, do I want anything more than this?

00:41:30--> 00:41:59

That's everything that I want in my life. versus if you don't do, right, I'm not going to fulfill your needs you'll always fulfill for and military cashola You're always be busy. always busy, not busy. Good way, busy in a bad way. Busy when you're doing all these things. Things never ending you always have to fix something and remedy something and move from one problem to the other. So you're always busy, but it doesn't bring any actual fruit to you.

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

And that's the dunya because you will be excessively interested and focused on it but no extra money front. And that's what the last panel Dionysus here.

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

Right. So

00:42:16--> 00:42:31

the dounia if you seek Allah subhana wa tada will come to you as a servant. And if you seek the AP euro, you will come to the dunya as a servant, and there's a difference between the two. Now,

00:42:32--> 00:43:08

if we have the dunya inside our hearts, we need to start developing an intention for the future. Now how do we do this? It's like a cup and we've used this analogy before it's like a cup that is full and you want to fill it with another type of liquid, you need to start gradually emptying the first liquid and adding the new one. So gradually like your heart is this cup and it has it's filled with the dounia you start to gradually remove the dounia and the add the remove the dounia and add the acid on that addition helps the removal. So what can you do

00:43:10--> 00:43:29

so a few advice inshallah. Constant remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala purifies your heart and elevates it above worldly preoccupations. So you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time. The Vicar, the general Vicar or the Quran, whatever remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada and that is, you know, a very

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

general

00:43:33--> 00:44:13

designation, the dhikr of Allah subhana wa Taala but everything that falls under it, you engage in it, and Remembrance Vicar brings a lot of panel data closer to your mind and closer to your heart. So I'm worried about this. remember Allah you say, okay, Allah takes care of it. I'm worried about that. remember Allah then you will say, oh, Allah, if I if I please our last panel with the Allah, Allah will satisfy my need. So whatever you're worried about, go back and remember Allah subhana wa tada remember him through the Koran remember him through continuous dick, remember him through observing the universe around you and contemplating his creation and as members of our last panel of

00:44:13--> 00:44:27

data, so that's one. Second is mindful worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You worship Allah, with deliberate intention that I'm doing this for his sake, and I want to extract benefits from it so you're mindful, aware of what you're doing,

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

and desiring benefits from it. So it's not habitual worship,

00:44:35--> 00:44:37

but mindful worship.

00:44:38--> 00:44:47

And third, counter the worries of this world by remembering the gravity of the Hereafter, and that the troubles of this world are too trivial and short lived.

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

What does that mean? It means that

00:44:53--> 00:45:00

what is for instance, losing a job in this dunya compared to a person standing

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

before Allah subhanho wa Taala and asking him Why did you commit this harm and him having no answer and going to hellfire.

00:45:09--> 00:45:41

Everything in this dunya right will come will pass everything in this dunya especially when you remember Allah subhana wa Tada. And that will lies in the theater. And it's questions and it's punishment possible punishment is far more severe than anything in dystonia. You say to yourself, this is easy. This is easy, and will go away, but the one that is lasting, so compare this existence to the existence in the next life, and you will find out that this will end

00:45:42--> 00:45:55

death will eventually come and all the things that I'm worried about will become part of the past. Remember, your parents or your grandparents or their parents, all of their worries, are gonna

00:45:56--> 00:45:59

write, all of their troubles are gone.

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

No one knows about them.

00:46:03--> 00:46:23

But the worry of the Hereafter is the thing that lasts and can last forever, says worry about that. Don't worry about this, thinking about that. Counter anxiety about the future by having to work on Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. And that if you're on Allah site, Allah will be on your site.

00:46:24--> 00:46:34

So you ask yourself, why should I be so worried about tomorrow? If Allah subhana wa, tada took care of me yesterday, and today, why was he going to stop doing it tomorrow?

00:46:36--> 00:46:53

following him say, Allah took care of me yesterday, last year, even before that today, and tomorrow will be like today, and like yesterday, and Allah will keep taking care of me, especially if you're close to a loss of power Dallas, if you're close, as excessive.

00:46:55--> 00:47:07

As it says here in this race, and this is a promise from a loss of panel data, your affairs, all of them will be united, because Allah is taking care of you. And if Allah loves you, Allah will take care of you.

00:47:09--> 00:47:30

And counter the greed and love of this world with remembering death and the expiration of all material possessions. I agreed, I'm really I want more and more and more, just remember, all of these things will expire, they will either leave you or you will leave them. One of these things have to happen. One of these things have to happen.

00:47:31--> 00:47:40

And why am I so attached to them? If I already know from beginning from the beginning, from the first moment I owned it, that it's going to leave me Why am I so attached to it.

00:47:41--> 00:47:55

So you get ready for it, you say it humbly that I will enjoy it as long as that's in my hand. If Allah decides, after an hour that I'm not supposed to have it, I will know Allah gave it a lot to get away it's his

00:47:58--> 00:48:01

and see how much peace you will have a few things like that.

00:48:02--> 00:48:03

Can you not be worried anymore.

00:48:07--> 00:48:21

You're not going to be worried anymore. I will be terrified every time for instance, I'm carrying this thing, whatever if it's expensive, because I think I'm going to damage it, I'm going to lose it. But if I say Allah will decide when it will be damaged and when I will lose it.

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

And it's in a was hand it's not in my hands then no worry anymore. So now let's head

00:48:29--> 00:48:41

and finally counter the desire of anything for bidding by remembering Allah anger and Alice punishment, and that if you just stay away from what Allah hates right now, soon enough, Allah will give you something better.

00:48:42--> 00:48:49

Soon enough, Allah will give you something better than the thing that Allah hates in this life and in the next definitely.

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

So it just requires a little bit of patience and a little bit of patience. Now, what you can tolerate is better than

00:48:59--> 00:49:03

with a good cannot be patient and Hellfire is better than punishment and

00:49:05--> 00:49:26

so an hour's you know, Joy is not worth one minute of being completely burned in hellfire. So you say to yourself, no. So you counter this with that, and that is what helps inshallah, in countering the desire for this dunya and replacing it with desire for the

00:49:28--> 00:49:35

the ritchhart really in summary is the heart that loves Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anything and anyone else.

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

doesn't love the dunya more than a lot with loves a lot more than dunya is willing to leave the dunya for the sake of Allah, when it is necessary, when there is conflict is willing to leave the dunya for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala all of it and sacrifice all of it because it doesn't live inside Allah lives inside. The dunya is right there to help and serve what Allah wants. Not

00:50:00--> 00:50:15

The other way around. So that's the case, that is a ritchhart. That is independent of the dunya not reliant on it. It's Reliant only on Allah. And it's this debacle that gives it strength, and power, and patience,

00:50:17--> 00:50:40

and courage, because I'm not afraid of tomorrow, because Allah is with me. I don't have to be worried about tomorrow because Allah is with me. I don't have to be sad about yesterday. Because Allah wanted it to be this way. And I know that Allah destinies things because they are best for me. So even if they made me feel sad, I'm not going to feel sad about them anymore.

00:50:41--> 00:50:44

You see that they see how your attitude can change.

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

Even your past life events, I'm not going to be sad about this anymore. Why? Because there is there was.

00:50:52--> 00:51:11

And there is reward in that. And there'll be continued to be rewarded in it. So I'm not going to feel sad, I would say Alhamdulillah a Allah that you gave me this in my past. So I'm going to change that sad event into a good event that I will learn from it. So not sad anymore. I'm not worried anymore. That's a rich heart.

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

And the Hadith of the prophets of Allah, he was sending them.

00:51:17--> 00:51:21

He says, and this explains more this Hadith, it just it's more detailed and Kennedy dunia.

00:51:23--> 00:51:40

The one who has this dunya as His goal was sedima. And he worries about it. Sediment means that if he's upset, and he's angry, he's angry and upset because of it. If he's sorry, and sad, he's sorry, and sad because of it. That's what moves him.

00:51:42--> 00:52:01

And he moves because of it. What year Hyun Lee, and he intends it. And his intention is for it. Same thing, a lower place poverty between his eyes disperse his affairs for him. And only that part of the dunya that is written for him will come to him. And the other person, the same thing.

00:52:03--> 00:52:06

The same thing, the one whose goal is the

00:52:07--> 00:52:09

right, was said.

00:52:10--> 00:52:14

And he gets sad and angry because of it.

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

Not because of the dounia.

00:52:17--> 00:52:25

Which is really a nice test. To tell you. What is your concern? What makes you sad?

00:52:26--> 00:53:05

What makes you angry? Right? The dollar today is strong. Good. I'm happy, right? It's down and my investments are down. I'm sad. So this, the Dow or the dounia. And its ups and downs is what makes me sad or happy. Not the not if I've done something that pleases a lot or I've done something that angers a lot that doesn't matter to me. So the problem is autism says less. So the setup of that person, his anger, his frustration, his sadness is for what either death or the dunya. If it's for the dunya. He's all the people of the dunya, if it's for the Atilla is the people of the asset.

00:53:06--> 00:53:26

So we're not 100% but you can work towards the 100% so that your anger and your happiness, your sadness would be for the rather than for the dunya right, you can still be sad and angry focus of some worldly stuff, but they should be secondary compared to the asset

00:53:28--> 00:53:51

when they have shackles on for it he moves and you know gathers and collects away Yeah, when we and he intensive than a loss of power data does to him as it says in the Hadith, Allah will make him rich insight. Rich inside a few rich inside it doesn't matter what you own on the outside, gather all of his concerns for him so that he can take care of them and the dunya will come to him.

00:53:53--> 00:54:17

And last thing inshallah that I want to say, is Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that is short, but it tells you how actually little you need from the dunya according to the prophets of a lie. And it actually also tells you about the three things that constitute or the basics of happiness in dystonia, three things. He says. Men also have in common and

00:54:18--> 00:54:36

more often he just study in the hotel Yomi, Taka Anima Hasan dunia behavior philia. He says a lot of you send them whoever among you men also the hamming code wakes up in the morning. And then he says basic you're feeling safe in his place and in his family.

00:54:37--> 00:54:42

So first, he has security and safety ambulance he sort of he wasn't he just

00:54:45--> 00:54:47

wasn't he just added meaning healthy

00:54:49--> 00:54:50

in his body.

00:54:52--> 00:54:57

And the third thing in the hippo to me he has the food for his day

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

for kanima

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

dounia we have that era it's as if this entire world has been gathered and given to

00:55:07--> 00:55:15

this is the entire demand, according to the profits of the lawyers and you don't need any more. The dounia will tell you otherwise Oh, you need a lot of me.

00:55:16--> 00:55:50

The problem is obviously missing you don't need you only want to know what the entire journey is. Okay? You wake up tomorrow, inshallah, Allah, if Allah extends your life in my life, and you find three things, wake up in the morning and you find safety, I'm safe, I'm not afraid. I'm in my home. And when my family safety, and imagine you're gonna love this name of safety, if it goes missing, right? how terrible it is. So he says, You have safety. So first, you have to appreciate it. I'm safe and hemmed in, in my family in my home. Second healthy.

00:55:52--> 00:56:06

And I don't find excuses in my back hurts a little bit in my throat. There are people who are you know, mourning because of you know, pain. So how healthy and you have the food for your day. It didn't say you have a food for a week.

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

Just for today.

00:56:10--> 00:56:15

It says this entire dinner had been gathered and collected and given to you. You don't need any more.

00:56:16--> 00:56:17

You're like a king.

00:56:18--> 00:56:27

Right? And then there's a panel off saying you only have the food for your day. That's an AMA because for a lot of us, you'll say okay, what about tomorrow?

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

What about tomorrow?

00:56:32--> 00:56:42

What is your trust in Allah? So what is he says a lot of you sent him he has only the food for today. Because when you only have enough, you don't worry about extra.

00:56:44--> 00:56:51

You don't worry about extra. And for tomorrow, that is with Allah Subhana Allah I'm not going to worry about tomorrow.

00:56:52--> 00:57:06

I'm not of course you know, sitting doing nothing and a lot of killer bring money to my door. It's not like that. But it's just our work. But I'm not worried about tomorrow. It's in Allah's hand and Allah will take care. But I have enough for today and if you have enough for today the purpose of life sentences that is it.

00:57:07--> 00:57:17

So remember this Hadeeth insha Allah so our project is to ask yourself, what is the goal of your life? and be honest.

00:57:24--> 00:57:39

inshallah, this isn't enough, this should be. So first you want to ask what is and you'll be honest, what it should be. And you bridge the gap move from what it is to what should be. So from design the dunya to design

00:57:40--> 00:58:02

and develop and make any other goal that you have work, study everything else, merge into the desire for the authority for a loss of data and you can do that with your intention. So every other goal make it for Allah and the ultimate goal is the action. So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make that really our goal and to give us as you said, the richness of the heart and

00:58:05--> 00:58:05

the light
