I'm gonna be having this halacha when Allah azza wa jal and then after there's going to be a break to take a break with Nila xojo. So we will be back to be safe on the 19th Inshallah, right on the 19th of January. So

00:00:17 --> 00:00:44

it's a bit of a break in sha Allah. So the important thing in that is that you don't establish a habit of not attending the Halacha because it's easy to miss this is it's once you have a habit of attending something right and it's disrupted, it's hard to come back to it. So, try insha Allah your best to reestablish that habit between Allah azza wa jal when we become back with nozzle so it's on the 19 feet Nila.

00:00:47 --> 00:01:03

A question for you guys. Did we mention ignite Abbas what he said because I don't remember exactly where we stopped at him when we said when he said the has another good deed has light in the face light in the heart abundance. We didn't say this, okay? We didn't mention it. Okay.

00:01:05 --> 00:01:47

So even claim to him a lie. Okay. So he's talking about the consequences of sins. We began that last time. And the last thing we mentioned as consequences of sin, difficulty in matters right that we talked about a difficulty in his affairs. So wherever he tries to do something, he finds it difficult. The doors are closed. And because Taqwa gives ease, and this is what Allah azza wa jal says that if you want ease, of course, in the Hereafter, but also ease in life. Toccoa paves the way for it gives you that ease. And if you want to Allah to save you from any difficulty, taqwa will save you from that difficulty. And the opposite of that then needs to be true. That if you don't

00:01:47 --> 00:02:31

have taqwa, what happens is that you will find that it's difficult to pursue things in life doors will be closed, there will be a lot of obstacles. And of course, also, if you get into trouble, it's hard to fix it, it's hard to get out of it. So that's what we talked about last time. He says Romania and of the consequence of the sins, he says the ALMA Tony ag to have you called Behati. If you wish to be a camera, your history with Almighty ladle bahini that hum. He says, another consequence of sin is that a darkness that he finds in his heart, but it's palatable, he finds it feels it as if he feels actual darkness of the actual darkness of the darks, dark, darkest of

00:02:31 --> 00:02:44

nights. And he says, so the darkness of that sin, to his heart becomes like physical darkness to his eye, because obedience is light, and disobedience is darkness, blackness.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:53

So the greater the darkness, the greater is confusion, until he falls into innovations and misguidance. And

00:02:55 --> 00:03:01

destructive matters. While he does not know like a person who walks out alone at night, and he's also blind.

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

So here, what he is saying Rahimullah is that as you see, and as you understand physical darkness, and how confusing it is, and how if you lack the ability to see, and you go out at night, you will fall into your own destruction because you don't know what to avoid. Even if you're not blind, but it's very dark, you don't know what to avoid, and dangerous things, animals, creatures will attack you and they'll take the opportunity of your lack of awareness to attack you. So that in the physical darkness, he's saying also, when you begin to sin and you continue to sin, you have a spiritual darkness that descends upon the heart, upon the mind upon the eyes. So it leads to

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53


00:03:55 --> 00:04:43

And it leads to lack of awareness of what is right and what is wrong, what is bad, what benefits you and what harms you. So you will fall into his saying innovations and sins and destructive matters, while not knowing that and maybe while liking it, maybe even why liking it. Because your heart now is inclined towards that sin and anything that looks like it and inclined away from obedience and anything that looks like it. So have you seen yourself right when you if you stay in a dark room, and then you exit immediately into the sun, how hurtful it is. And then you may want then what to go back and retreat into the darkness. And the opposite is true that if your eyes are accustomed to the

00:04:43 --> 00:04:55

sun, and you want to go into a dark room, you find it too dark, too uncomfortable, is what are you used to. So this darkness descends upon the heart and it leaves it really confused

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

and utterly

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00


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

Next and angry and sad and all these things happen. So

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

if you want to see or you want to understand why a person could progress in sin,

00:05:10 --> 00:05:24

or a person could progress in Bidda, and how you say, they could reach at this stage to this level, you understand that the reason or the way that we begin is with the miner better

00:05:25 --> 00:05:36

by just listening to it, right, by accepting a little bit of it, or when it comes to sin, by listening to a little bit of it, the entry point of it.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

entertaining the idea, even

00:05:40 --> 00:05:57

being around the people or committed the old even though you're innocent of it, but being around them. And that leaves a dark spot and brings more darkness to the heart and more confusion to it. And then slowly you begin to like what you see like what you hear,

00:05:58 --> 00:06:06

then you will be involved in it. And it really changes the heart didn't the entire heart until a person now is

00:06:08 --> 00:06:24

quite deep into Vida and how it started it started with that little bit of darkness that he accepted, be there and sin and all of that. So he says what Alcoa the hipbone Mahathir Rafi from Morocco.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:29

What are pseudo Sawada and fi hero Kulu. I heard, he says and this darkness.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:33

As it gains strength, you could see it in the eyes

00:06:34 --> 00:06:43

and against even more strength, and you will see it on the face. And you will see it become darkness that everybody can see.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:48

Okay, almost everybody, not everybody can see.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:52

But when you look at the faces of some of the

00:06:54 --> 00:07:00

sinners, rebellious sinners against Allah azza wa jal, and if a person has taqwa,

00:07:01 --> 00:07:10

you could see the imprint of that sin on their face and body. Right, you could see it in the face that it lacks light lacks vitality.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:42

You don't feel close to that person. You feel repelled by them when they talk and when they speak, as if something has covered their face. And the more sinful and the more criminal a person is, the more that you see this on their face. Just look at those right who kill other people or sell, sell the Haram or sell their bodies or misguide other people. So whether it's on the part of Shaha, temptations, physical

00:07:43 --> 00:08:10

temptations are the intellectual Chu who had doubts and wrong beliefs. They peddle this or they peddle that. If a person has enough taqwa and light from Allah Zoda Lee could see in their face, the crime that they've committed, right? And the greater Topo person has, the more that he's able to see it. Now, again, and again and again, that's not an invitation for nowt a person to see or to say.

00:08:11 --> 00:08:15

I'm going to judge everybody that I see based on whether I like them or not.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:31

That's assuming that you have that Taqwa. We're talking here about what people who are well known when it comes to those offenses, you see it reflected in their faces and Subhanallah you even you would see some of them if they begin with

00:08:32 --> 00:08:39

lit beautiful faces the more that the progress in sin the more that they lose that

00:08:40 --> 00:08:55

until Allah as though did ultimately demonstrate or shows on their face what they were doing on the inside. So here ignore Abbas have said this is the thing that I was asking about and it is at least authentic from the singer well Hassan and bursary

00:08:56 --> 00:09:10

Rahim Allah, He says Al Hasina, the good deed, has or produces light on the face has light in the heart abundance in provision is what Allah gives to you. And strength in the body, and love in people's hearts.

00:09:11 --> 00:09:28

It produces all of this. And he says, uh, say, the bad deed, what what does it produce a show, it's the opposite of all of this. So it says, darkness in the face, darkness in the heart, weakness in the body, mean weakness in the body, and then diminishing provisions and then hatred in people's hearts.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:59

So Subhan Allah see how incredible that sin is that it pollutes everything, from the inside to the outside to your relationship with the people and obedience fixes everything from your inside to the outside meaning to even your body, to your relationship with people. So its effect is not restricted to the day of judgment and that is it. And if I escape it now now, or if I think I've escaped it now it means I've escaped it in the dunya. No, it has an effect.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:23

and it touches everything and it pollutes everything, right? So if a person wants to save himself from all of this, then you stop that sin. Or if not, then you will suffer on multiple fronts. Not only that the judgment, but the money that you make the body that you have the relationships that you have your heart and your mind will suffer. Okay?

00:10:26 --> 00:10:46

Then he says, And he moves on, and he says, I mean 100 miles or 200 COBOL burden as a since the weekend, both heart and body, the weekend, both heart and body. And he says as far as far as weakening the heart that's visible, that's obvious. And it will continue to weaken it until it kills it.

00:10:49 --> 00:10:59

So if you want to understand the weakness of the heart, when it comes to sin, so if you tell yourself or you tell someone read a page from the Quran,

00:11:00 --> 00:11:06

let's stick to ourselves read a page from the Quran or two or three. And you say I can't.

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08

What is that?

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10

There's a weakness, right?

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

They say, Okay, stay away from haram, don't look at that thing. Or don't listen to that thing. And you say I can't.

00:11:18 --> 00:11:57

What is that? That's weakness. You can't do this. Why? Because physically, it's within your ability to do it, isn't it? Like, just sit and read Quran? Can't you do this? Physically you can. What's missing? What's the weakness? So it's not the body, the heart is weak. Or stay away? Don't look at that thing. Of course, you can't. You can stop looking. Of course you can. What's weak, is the heart is weak. Why is the heart weak? Just like when the body is weak, you don't feed it or you feed it the wrong thing. You don't take care of it. So somebody he can't, he can't even move. What's wrong, I haven't been eating.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:15

Okay, or I eat the wrong thing. I'm sick. Or I had an infection. I'm, I'm weak, I'm sick. So something is wrong with that body. That disables it. It's the same exact thing when it comes to the heart. You can move the why, Oh, I haven't been feeding it.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:29

What is I mean, there is no thicker there is no Quran, Allah azza wa jal is not inside. So it's weak, hungry. So it's weak, or feed the wrong thing. When you get tired or depressed, listen to music.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:36

And that will elevate your mood or change your mood, but it is not going to fix it.

00:12:37 --> 00:12:45

Right? It will, it will change your mood, not gonna lie to you, right? It can make you happy. It can make you sad, right? You can play with your emotions, but it doesn't fix

00:12:47 --> 00:12:49

and only what makes you sick or actually.

00:12:50 --> 00:13:19

So you feed it the wrong thing. Or I'm tired. Let me eat this haram thing. Listen to this haram thing, drink this haram thing, that your heart is sick because of it. So you can do what is supposed to do. That's the sickness of the heart. Or there is a disease in it. You've loved it and you've listening to the wrong things. Now you become sick because of what the heart had been exposed to. That's a sickness. So it's infected. It needs treatment. So that's the weakness.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:27

Okay, but he says now what is less obvious, but it's equally true, it weakens the body.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:47

And he says, and here, this is something that is really important to note, there will be those points right in the book that you really need to stop at and say I need to remember this. He says, weakening the body. He says because the Mortman his strength comes from his heart.

00:13:49 --> 00:14:35

That means they believe his strength comes from his heart. And the stronger his heart is the stronger his body is as far as the sinner, the disobedient. Even if he is strong in body, he's the weakest when need be. If he his body is strong and tough, and he goes to the gym and he has a lot of muscles. And you think wow, if I were to in a fight one to one with him, he'll demolish me right. It says even though that's the case, but when need be when he's needed, he'll find him the weakest and his strength will betray him when he needs it the most. And he gives you an example and he says and contemplate and think about the strength of the bodies of the Persians and the Romans. Those are the

00:14:35 --> 00:14:48

people that the Muslims fought, the Persians had the Empire and the Romans or the Byzantines had the other empire. So they fought this and they fought that and the bodies were strong bodies and the Arabs were what?

00:14:49 --> 00:14:59

Right. So he says look at how strong their bodies were. How would that betrayed them when they needed that the most and the people of Eman defeated them with the strength

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01

Have their bodies and hearts.

00:15:03 --> 00:15:09

Right. So that is an essential difference between an empty vessel that has nothing inside.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:21

And another vessel that had been filled with emotion and determination and conviction, you put those two together who wins the one with the greatest patience and conviction, not the one with the greatest body,

00:15:23 --> 00:15:42

not the great numbers, and not the one who is best equipped with weapons, even till today, it's not the case, the most important thing, that the person must have to win against the shaytaan, to win against temptations, and to win against an external enemy is his heart.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:56

And once the heart is strong, the body is strong, because the body then can do things and tolerate things that you would think are intolerable. How could a person go through this and remain sane?

00:15:57 --> 00:16:07

not lose their mind not be traumatized? How can they push their body all the way to that end, and still survive.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:15

So the strength of that determination comes from Allah as a soldier. I wouldn't say just from a human being.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:27

Because as a human being, you could have the most conviction that you want. And it's important, by the way, but it will often take you so far important, you could win against a larger enemy,

00:16:28 --> 00:16:43

you have conviction, but there is a space that remains empty. And that space is one that is filled by Allah xuejun. Not by any other human. So the strength he's telling you, the strength of the believers comes from where the heart and not the body.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:53

And the strength of the disbelievers comes from the body, not the heart. So in a clash between the two, the believers will win.

00:16:54 --> 00:16:58

And if there's weakness on the side of the believers is the weakness in the heart.

00:16:59 --> 00:17:28

And if they don't have that, then obviously they will lose because they have don't have both, not the external and not the internal strength. So understand this, because that's really important. Don't build up the body simply don't just take care of the physical simply, and ignore what is most important, which is what your life, the life of the heart, that wellness of the heart and the emotion of the heart. So you build this up, and you can take anything, okay?

00:17:31 --> 00:17:35

And he says, Woman, her also from the consequences, evil consequence of sin.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:37


00:17:39 --> 00:17:46

And that's why, by the way, before, you know, we move away from this, that if the believers they want to get themselves ready, right,

00:17:48 --> 00:17:56

for spreading Islam and Dawa, and this and that you work on the strength of your heart. You devote time to it.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:43

In all the ways that we talked about, and then the ways that we'll be talking about but you devote time to it. So you will be able to carry the burden of data and the burden of this and the burden of that so that you do not collapse. He says we've been hanged from the consequence of sin, headman Otah. Is his denial of obedience. Meaning you've denied yourself, the obedience of Allah azza wa jal by committing that sin Isa, you say how is he said, If sin has no punishment, except that it had taken the space of another obedience of Allah azza wa jal that could have occupied it. So it blocks the way of another obedience. So because of that sin, another second, and a third and a fourth thing

00:18:43 --> 00:19:25

that he could have done stops. So a lot of obedient says are blocked, each one of them is better than this world, and whatever it carries, and this is like an A, like his examples. And I tell you why it's important to have these examples. And he says, this is like somebody who ate a bad meal made him sick for a long time. Because of it, it deprived him from eating more delicious meals after all right? Because that example I is relatable, you understand it. So somebody who says okay, there's something that you're not supposed to eat and it's a bad meal. I'm not saying Haram is just simply a bad meal, badly cooked meal, you couldn't stop yourself, you couldn't resist. So you ate

00:19:25 --> 00:19:48

it. It made you sick. So for the next week or two, you're on a diet you cannot eat anything you like. So that's what he's talking about. One bad thing one bad decision influences days to come or weeks to come. So it stops you from eating what you like because you ate the wrong thing. So that sin what it does is worth

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

the time that you're taking to commit it could have been tick taken to do something good. So it blocked it replaced. The good that might have existed

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

And not only that, it took the space of that good thing that good thing usually leads to another as He talks it will talk about usually leads to another good thing, and then a following good thing. So a whole path of righteousness was blocked because of one thing.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:53

So that's what he's talking about hermano TA, is just takes it away from you. So you miss an opportunity. Right? Just like if you sit, you know if you're someone who likes to invest money and there's a great opportunity here but instead of risk, greater opportunity, listening to someone who's going to lead you to it, you listen to listen to somebody who's gossiping. Somebody is you know, engage in a useless talks, he wastes your time when only two he wastes your time. He deprived you of what an investment opportunity and all the money that it can bring. That's the idea here. So he says it's blocking you. And that's the problem with it. And he says what mean her

00:20:54 --> 00:21:42

and then ma si tu casa de la Mora autumn halco. Baraka Hawala wood, is also sins. This is something that they do is that they shorten one's lifespan, and remove the blessings that are in it must they must do so they indeed righteousness, it elongates and expands one lifespan, and disobedience shortens lifespan. And he'll tell you why he says there are you know, why, how do you look at this? How do you interpret this, there is 123 ways you could look at it. And this is should not be unfamiliar to you, because we talked about this before, how righteousness extends one's life, and how the AVI obviously a sin should shorten it. So he says, people have kind of have opinions,

00:21:42 --> 00:21:49

different opinions about how this happens. The first is that the baraka goes away,

00:21:50 --> 00:22:02

you simply live the same number of years 6060 7070. But 70, righteous hears versus 70, sinful years are very, very different.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:35

Even if you say to yourself, I'll repent when I retire, I repent when I get older, I'll get over this sin when I get married. When I graduate, you know, we've talked about this before this so shaytaan always will give you those those delays, when I get married, when I get children when I move next year when Ramadan comes after Ramadan, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, even if even if you manage to repent at that time, and you become a great person. The problem is that you've wasted all the time before.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:41

So there is no Baraka in it is gone. How are you going to replace it?

00:22:43 --> 00:22:56

So you should feel pressured, guilty, ashamed, that hey, listen, so and so was the same age as mine. When we were going to meet Allah azza wa jal here would be so it would seem like he had lived longer than I did.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:13

Because he did more than I did, because he took advantage of his life. So you must feel that pressure, which is a good type of pressure. Repent now stop now fix yourself now, because you're losing these times. But a person who doesn't

00:23:15 --> 00:23:17

he say the baraka goes away.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:56

Baraka was baraka of your time. It goes by very quickly, you don't manage to do anything in it. You don't remember to obey Allah azza wa jal, you give it very little time in even when you want to give it time you give it very little attention. You don't like that you're doing it. You do it dismissively. And you go on to what you like. So there is really no Baraka in it. So you notice that there is no Baraka in the money, no Baraka in the relationship, no Baraka in life, no Baraka in your vacations, no Baraka in your projects, no Baraka in the time that you just want to sit and relax, there's no better game this entire life, if that's because there is sin in it.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:24

And you will see it in nations, and you will see it globally, right, even though there might be some scientific explanation to it, but as you age, you feel what the time passes, more and more quickly. Now, they say there is a scientific explanation to it because as you age, the way that you look at time you will experience this and that. But we also understand from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that that is a consequence of getting closer to the day of judgment.

00:24:25 --> 00:24:38

And that is also a consequence to the abundance of sin. The more sin that you have in a country, when you land, when you live, you notice that there's no Baraka. You don't feel it, even the food, right?

00:24:39 --> 00:24:50

So he says, Okay, that's one explanation, the explanation of lack of Baraka. That's why the life feels shorter. He says the other explanation is that no, it's actually it's shorter.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:59

In years, as it diminishes provision, he says, Allah azza wa jal, he says, and this is nice, he said, Allah azza wa jal had

00:25:00 --> 00:25:09

Given Baraka in risk, right? Many causes are many, many reasons. And Baraka also in

00:25:11 --> 00:25:35

an age also has a lot of reasons meaning, why would why do you live longer, if you do A, B, C and D you will live longer the reasons why a person lives longer than other people, right. So, there are physical causes, he was saying, like, just like the physical causes, you also have non physical causes. So, if you obey Allah azza wa jal, your life span increases, and if you disobey you live less.

00:25:37 --> 00:25:49

So, he says that's also a possibility, and it's all written in Allah's decree, what you will do and how you will live, but it will based on what you have done, so that sin actually can take it away.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:50


00:25:52 --> 00:25:57

So he says, you know, and it's not, you know, and it's possible or it's not a logical kind of,

00:25:58 --> 00:26:41

it's not impossible for lifespan to increase because of causes as it decreases because of causes just like anything else. So you have sickness and health, happiness and misery provisions, having money have not having money, all of them are decreed by Allah azza wa jal, but are decreed through things that Allah azza wa jal creates, right? Makes sense? Right? So a person gets sick decree of Allah. But then why does he become sick? There's a cause. That person is rich decree from Allah. But how did he become rich, there's a decree there's a way says the same thing. Also, a person doesn't live as long or lives less, but why? There are reasons for it. So he says one of the reasons is

00:26:41 --> 00:27:28

obedience and disobedience. It says an another interpretation of it, of why that sin will diminish one's lifespan. And that is an interesting also way of looking at it. He says, it takes away your life because life he says he a higher to truly TRUE LIVING True life is the living of the heart. That's why Allah azza wa jal, he had made the disbelievers dead and another life. So Allah says, and worked on the Euro here, they are dead and alive even though they have physical life, but they are dead and they are not among the living. He says because life is the life of the heart and your age how much you live, is the age where you are being Allah azza wa jal that's that's your real life.

00:27:29 --> 00:27:37

Bear and Taqwa and obedience increases that and anything else decreases it.

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


00:27:40 --> 00:27:50

if a person you know, meets Allah oxygen on the Day of Judgment, call to Kembla is to fill out the added acini Coronavirus, naomh and Obaldia first Eliel hottie

00:27:52 --> 00:28:10

so Allah azza wa jal will say, or will ask them to say, How many years did you spend on Earth? He's asking them about years, how many years did you spend on Earth? The reply comes back on what he says we've spent the day or some of the day, part of a day. So as those who kept count.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:37

So Allah is asking them about two years, they've said, We've lived for a day. All of this is just one single day, or part of the day. So when you are going to bed, think about your life. The part of it that matters is the part where you will be Allah as Odin. That's the part where you are alive. That's the part that gets transferred to the next one. Everything else disappears. Everything else is a waste of time.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

Right? Everything else is neglect.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:53

So he's saying here, why does it diminish your life when you send because he says, your real life is alive when you're alive, inside with your heart. But when you kill your heart, you're dead.

00:28:54 --> 00:29:35

You're eating and drinking, but you're dead. You're not producing anything that pleases Allah azza wa jal, or that will save you in the next life. So this is true living. So he continues and he says for Bill Joomla, it says In summary, a person if he turns away from Allah azza wa jal, and he is singing, his real life is wasted, his real days are wasted. And you will find the loss of that and the consequence of it, when he will say yeah, late and you cut them to the hierarchy. I wish I had put something forward for this life, meaning for his next life. He says, when that you know, follow your flow, he says a person can either be someone who is seeking his worldly and otherworldly

00:29:35 --> 00:29:45

advantages or not, meaning you're worried about it or not. So he says, if he's not worried about advantages in this life and the next, then all your life is wasted.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:59

And if another person you are interested, say I want to save myself in the next life, but also I want to get what they want good in this life. If you're not that person you just want to live and eat and die is is you've wasted your life. Here

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

He says or Canada auto loan in other UK you really worried about saving yourself and worried about what benefits you he says if that is your pursuit in life sin derails you takes you away from what you're supposed to do. So he says Talat Ali hitagi, if your path is longer with the US solid ally, here's bubble clay, then the means of righteousness become difficult because of that, and that takes away from his life, from what you can accomplish. This is why sin diminishes your life because it lacks that accomplishment. And he says we're suitable Miss Allah. He says, The secret of this is that one's lifespan

00:30:42 --> 00:30:56

is one's life, meaning that righteous life and he has no life except by turning to Allah azza wa jal, and finding delight in His love and His in remembrance and favoring what pleases Him Subhana water

00:30:58 --> 00:31:00

and he says in Wamena, Ilan

00:31:04 --> 00:31:10

will mean her Ilan from the effects of sin is that animals it is unfair to her that sins,

00:31:12 --> 00:31:33

plant the seeds of other sins and they generate other sins until it's difficult for a person to stop and leave them chemical about to sell off as the some of the sell off have said in them in Ohio, but he say it is a tuba from the punishment of a sin is a sin that comes after and from the reward of a good deed is a good deed that comes after.

00:31:34 --> 00:31:37

And that is visible and actually experiential.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:57

If you think about it, see how we're gonna think about an example maybe in Ramadan? How will you start fasting, it leads you to other things. You weren't doing them before? Or not with any intensity, but you begin to fast in itself is an act of EVA, the what do you do else?

00:31:58 --> 00:32:36

You do the Quran, then if you do the Quran, and you do fasting, what else do you do? There is still a way that you lead to, and then you give more money in sadaqa. And that remember Allah as though did more and right see, so when you do one, it leads you to another. So think about it also, when you come to the masjid, just you just you come to the masjid, right, you will be reminded of other acts of righteousness just because you need the Masjid. Somebody will say, so Allahu Allah he was sending him, you'll see that I'm supposed to repeat that. So you repeat that that's another act. So what made that possible? The first one, you come in somebody's reading the Quran, you reminded Oh,

00:32:36 --> 00:32:55

there is a Quran and reading it is good. So you're more likely to read it. So when you put yourself on a path of righteousness, it will keep dragging you. So one leads to the other one leads to the other one leads to the other. And that's the broader one sin is that you will have a word of one good deed is that you'll have another good deed, sin acts in the same way

00:32:57 --> 00:32:59

that if you sin,

00:33:00 --> 00:33:01

it invites the next one.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:12

Because it opens your eyes up to other things as well. Because when you put yourself next to it, in the midst of it, it doesn't exist on its own does it

00:33:13 --> 00:33:45

like the sin and the sinful is just one sin there. That orphan sin by itself. It has to have connections. So that connection has people has people who promote it. And so we'll say the next one, you will have seen you have heard you've experienced, it's in you now. That's why you see had the doom of Arakata. And he will talk about it says it difficult that you would abandon it. But the next one invites it and the next one invites it and so on and so on. And the ones who promote sin, they understand that

00:33:46 --> 00:33:56

anyone who's wants to promote sin, and there are those who want to promote sin, they make money off of it, or they simply want to corrupt people, whatever it is, the intention doesn't matter. The outcome is the same.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:02

If they want to get you into that sin, feel introduce one thing

00:34:03 --> 00:34:09

and then around it other things so that you could explore them, or the first thing is free.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:18

Okay, the first visit is free. The first smoke is free. The first drink is free. The why is it free? Because they're kind hearted?

00:34:20 --> 00:34:43

No, right? What does he know? Is if I get together into try once, he's more likely to try again. Right? So the first one is free, because he's making money off of you. Right? He will make a lot of money off of you. So that's why he says just try this is if you try it, and you can always say to yourself when she's done we'll tell you I can quit I can stop.

00:34:45 --> 00:34:49

I can I can go all the way to the edge and come back safe. No, you can't.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:51

You can't.

00:34:52 --> 00:34:59

So if you commit to one, right, and those who are promotion promoters have said they will know

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

Keep, we want him to also know about this and about this and about that.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:11

So as you get exposed to them, you go into greater sin, and then greater sin, and then greater sin. Right.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:44

And I'm not talking here about something impractical. I'm talking about actual things that are happening, right? If you go on particular websites, right, and you're looking for one thing, one haram thing. There are other haram things that are strategically, strategically placed, so that you would see them and be enticed by them. Because explore, be curious, you click on it. And then the next thing you also click on it, and you're being conditioned, you don't know, but you're being conditioned, is somebody in the background, his charting that map for you, right?

00:35:48 --> 00:36:34

There he says, Well, I could do either I'm either Hassan ISIS, so a person when he commits his good deed, the one next to it, he says, and do do me as well. And the next one and the next one, and fettled auto repair, what is it that it has an ad so when you commit one, and you're invited to do others, and you do with the others, then your profit is abundant increases and you have a lot of good deeds, and so is with sin. He says here had total Sierra to Alma RC Hey and Rasika was the fat in nazima Humala getting forbidden isn't until a point where obedience and disobedience they become qualities, intrinsic qualities like second nature, not something that you could do or not do. No,

00:36:34 --> 00:37:00

now it's part of you. That's what we're talking about as a second nature. So he says, so follow Atala sutra. So if the obedient person would stop obeying Allah zodion, his self would become tight, and this vast Earth would become too tight for him. And he will feel as if he is a fish outside of water until he goes back. And he does that obedience, and then his self will be quiet again, and his eye will be comfortable and delighted.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:35

Because that's the thought. That's the thing. It's habit. He's talking about good deed that had become habit. So if your habit is to fast Ramadan, and God forbid you decide, you know, one year to say, I'm not gonna fast, what do you feel? Everybody's fasting and you're not? And you sit comfortably? No, no, what am I doing? That's the most uncomfortable thing I can't eat, eating, which is the more natural natural thing you can't eat any can't drink, and eat you feel guilty. And the only thing that could save you is what if you fast? Is it now uncomfortable,

00:37:36 --> 00:38:17

which is what which is an act of denial and deprivation, he says, but that deprivation makes me comfortable. Because this is the Ibadah that I know that I'm used to, is the same thing than with people who remember Allah azza wa jal, Allah, if you tell them not to, he'll be in a terrible mood, he can continue. Something is really missing in life, just like your morning cup of coffee. You can't continue to function the rest of the day. Why? Because my vicar wasn't included. So you find that you're fighting with so and so you can tolerate you can be patient, you're agitated, what is missing, he says that Salah is missing, this dhikr is missing, that Ava is missing because a you are

00:38:17 --> 00:38:42

so used to it. And it's a habit and it's a good habit, if you were to let go of it, yourself will be agitated. And then the Earth itself will not be enough for you. And he says also what I thought I wanted him and Marcia and his if the disobedient person would have to stop sinning. And we'd go and or would want to obey Allah zodion his self will be tight.

00:38:43 --> 00:38:53

Right? Like in the beginning, his self will be tight, his chest will be tight, and he will not know what to go on what to do until he go back to that sin. Because that's the habit.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:07

Right? Because the habit is at that time, I'll drink that time I'll smoke at that time I'll be in that place. You tell them stop the force of habit comes in says no, no, I don't feel comfortable. I need to go back to this.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:12

That's the thing I'm used to. That's the thing you know that that that I'm long to do.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:23

Until right he that's why he needs to be strong to break that habit and establish another one. But that's the problem here. And he said

00:39:25 --> 00:39:26

and this is I think

00:39:27 --> 00:39:59

is kind of also brilliant from him or him Oh Allah. He says that the inner Kathira minute for surgery that you work you almost see him in memory Let that energy do her while at the 18 year old Ayrton Ilya Ilima big to middle Ella maybe Mufasa Katya? He says, Because until Orpen till the extent that a lot of sinners, they will commit that sin without the joy that they find. And nothing that calls them do it except because of the pain that they feel if they stop it. There are so used to it. Now. There's no joy anymore.

00:40:01 --> 00:40:12

In the beginning, they may have been, but now wide, they have seen the devastating effects of that sin, that there's no joy anymore, but they can't stop. They have to keep doing it.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:20

And I'll give you an example. And I think the example is brilliant as well. He says Gamasutra hobby daily Kashi called Call me says when a poet

00:40:22 --> 00:40:26

who had said, will get sin, surely ashamed to Oh, surely but Allah, the TIN

00:40:28 --> 00:40:41

will what gets in sharib to Allah that You know, Kurata away to mean habia it says a glass, which is a glass of alcohol that I drank, to find joy in. And another one that I drank to heal the first one

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

to heal me from the first one.

00:40:45 --> 00:41:01

And there is another one he says for kind of dua II well, your dad EBA in here, it was my medicine and it was my sickness as well. Can I eat it our Sherry will company will hungry as the drinker of alcohol seeks alcohol to medicate him from his drink.

00:41:02 --> 00:41:07

Right? Like the image that comes to mind is someone who had become so

00:41:08 --> 00:41:12

alcoholic, right? That they go and they buy a bottle.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:22

And they're miserable when they buy it. And they miserable when they sit and drink it, but they can't stop doing it. Because that's the only thing that could take the pain away.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:31

So they want to numb the pain and be drunk. And when they're sober again. They go again to buy another bottle. There's no joy.

00:41:32 --> 00:41:52

It's not a social drinking anymore with friends. No, no, it's there's no joy in it. But you need to drown yourself in that alcohol. So that's what they're talking about. Yes, you can drink some. And you think that's fun, and it's nice, or you could sleep around and you think it's fun and it's nice. And when that sin becomes a habit.

00:41:54 --> 00:41:56

Two things take place. There's no joy in it.

00:41:57 --> 00:42:22

It's a habit. It's nothing new. Then the problem with sin is what? The sin is supposed to what entice tantalize, right? So when the threshold of sinning you've achieved a lack of sense of Allah, Allah got a lack of feeling doesn't doesn't taste you anymore. What do you do? You got to push it up. Right? So you get to the next level

00:42:24 --> 00:43:04

to be enticed. So now if you've crossed another threshold, then you get used to it then what? Extra? So you'll always be looking for is there a stronger drink stronger pills? Can I mix this? Can I mix that that's not enough for me? And to keep pushing on and on and on? And sexually? It happens the same way. Okay, I've tried this then what what's extra this then what this then what this then what? And then eventually what there is no joy in it anymore. It's all haram. There's no joy in it anymore. You can't stop though. You don't know anything else. And it's hard to stop. It's hard to leave. It's hard to it to cut all of that out. So before you reach it, you stop otherwise the

00:43:04 --> 00:43:35

shaitaan will keep pushing you until you break. So that's what is what is brilliant about immunity and Rahim Allah is that he was able to note among people who drink alcohol and they know alcohol will come back and tell you Yes, in the beginning area was it was for fun. But then now it's not for fun anymore. Now it's causing me pain. And the only thing that works is to drink more of it which causes you more pain and so on and so on. He says what I thought I would do Subhanallah I will as I look up Do you have any thoughts?

00:43:37 --> 00:44:10

Okay, so, this also is beautiful to keep in mind. The servant of Allah continues to struggle with obedience, strive, push himself, way Allah for her and he gets to like it and loves it and favors it favors it over others, until Allah azza wa jal with his mercy, he sends him angels that push him to it and motivate him to do it. What does he do home infura She he will match this Elijah and bring him discomfort from his bed and from his seat so that he would do it.

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


00:44:16 --> 00:44:23

But that requires in the beginning what he strives. He tries and tries and tries

00:44:24 --> 00:44:38

to obey Allah azza wa jal. And he favors that a brother and slowly begins to love it more and love it more and love it more. And then you reach a stage. He's saying Rahim Allah until Allah azza wa jal sends you angels

00:44:40 --> 00:44:59

who will push you to obey Allah azza wa jal, then the angels of Allah as a descendant battle to help the prophets, adios Salam and his companions. He says, No, that's not the only way they descend. Not the only reason why they descend, but they will descend to assist you. So a person right would be sitting in this

00:45:00 --> 00:45:02

Sleeping somebody will wake him up time for Salah

00:45:03 --> 00:45:05

who will walk you

00:45:06 --> 00:45:15

right? You could see it in your dreams but people report this right and it's it's their it's their fault of its own authentic but I think it is

00:45:17 --> 00:45:23

they will be asleep somebody with some thankful your Salah well why did that happen? It's not an alarm.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:52

It's not somebody they've asked, wake up, it's time for your Salah and they report that over and over and over. Whether they see it in a dream or they feel something pushing them waking them up, and it's the time for the Salah. So Allah azza wa jal will if you are among those people, he will send you angels of Allah xojo and reminders, I can't sleep that the Jaffa you know, boom and in Mataji right there their their sight,

00:45:53 --> 00:46:22

distance themselves, right, or they seek distance from their beds, that they find it uncomfortable to continue to sleep. But that is the outcome of pushing themselves right? To obey Allah azza wa jal And the opposite is true. And he says, and he will continue to be more and more familiar with sin, and He loves it and he favors it until Allah has that it will send upon him, the shale team, the devils and they will push him towards it.

00:46:23 --> 00:46:51

And it's not that Allah azza wa jal, just like with the angel, Allah commands the angel and the angel comes. So Allah commands the shaytaan of the shaytaan comes no but this Allah has noted had made the shaytaan attracted to disobedience. And when he finds a disobedient person, he will go and push him towards more disobedience because there are no angels around to protect him. So if you want to understand how people could become so rebellious and sin, and they can fight for it, and they killed for it,

00:46:52 --> 00:46:55

where do they have the strength? And you imagine,

00:46:57 --> 00:47:06

you know how hard it is to obey Allah azza wa jal, right? That is hard. You find though the sinful, the criminal committing all of these acts, what do you get this all this energy from?

00:47:08 --> 00:47:40

At least I wonder, right? What is the thing that's motivating you. And one motivation here is that they have the shayateen to assume as is pushing them hard, they don't let them sit, do more of that sin, commit more of that crime, speak evil, more evil, even more evil than that. And they have that energy. And that's the shayateen. Because they have vacated, the angels have vacated that area, there is no good left in that person, because of all the bad that he's doing. So the shayateen come and they push him towards that sin. So it continues to be worse and worse, every day.

00:47:41 --> 00:48:08

So it says fellow co we're doing the authority build method. So with the first person he strengthened the soldiers of obedience with what he's doing. So they became his greatest helpers, meaning the angels of Allah xojo, they needed to be strengthened. So he favored the truth. And they became strong, and they strengthened him. And the other one has strengthened the soldiers of disobedience with what he is doing. And so they became helpers as well.

00:48:09 --> 00:48:10

So yeah,

00:48:11 --> 00:48:51

I mean, you have angels around you, I would not prophets, we have angels around you, that will inspire you in your head and in your heart to do good things that will push you to do good things. And the more that you obey Allah azza wa jal, the stronger their influence will be. And you also have devils and jinn around you, that when you disobey Allah azza wa jal, they will push you to think the wrong thing and to do the wrong thing and to start doubting Allah as we did and the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and Islam and to favor greater sins, and they will push you to it and you have no one else to blame except yourself because both of them are ready. And both of them

00:48:51 --> 00:49:05

are around you as just who do you support? And who did you strength and where are you leaning to? Right. So we'll stop here Nila as origin and we'll see inshallah if you have questions.

00:49:07 --> 00:49:33

And remember again in sha Allah that what we said So next week, there are conference taking place and they do actually recommend that you guys look around and see what messages are offering what conferences and you partake of that. Listen to this, listen to this, listen to that. It's a good change of pace and it's a good inshallah exposure. And inshallah we'll be back and be nila, as legit as we mentioned on the 19th inshallah of January or not, so let me know if you have questions.

00:49:43 --> 00:49:46

Extend somebody's lifetime for a long period of time.

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


00:49:50 --> 00:49:59

So that happens as well. So let me answer that question. So, we've talked about how sin can decrease someone's life. So how do we understand it in light of the fact that Allah Azza

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

Will could at times, right?

00:50:02 --> 00:50:35

Extend one's life span, sinful, disobedient person as a punishment so that they would get greater sin. And we say it, it's different with different people. So for some people, as you said, Allah azza wa jal could extend their life, and that extension of their life is older for them to gray get greater sin, and be have greater punishment, and also to exhaust any excuse they may have, right. And there's also other benefits in it, because that person would be used as a tool, and a reminder for the believers

00:50:37 --> 00:51:18

not to commit such a thing, or he could be a tool of punishment and reform and reminder. So there's a lot of benefits in it. So it's very complex, because it has many factors in it. So for some Allah *, he may not take away from his life. Or we may say, Allah knows, he may have lived longer, even if he were to be righteous. But for some people, it will affect them like that. For some people, it will take away their life, whether we say, in numerical sense, meaning in numbers 123, they have now less fewer years than before, or in the other interpretation in terms of Monica. So it will really vary. So when it comes to matters like this, they are complicated, because what's

00:51:18 --> 00:51:34

involved is invisible. Right? Why end? How did why did the light extend his life, but not this person's life? Why was he punished for this, but that person not really punished for that? So there are things that are factors that lie beyond that perceptible.

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


00:51:52 --> 00:51:53

That's true. This is.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:39

So, hey, Zack Lafave. So he's talking, he's commenting, he said, you know, as we talked about alcohol, he said, also, the same thing with drugs, you start very small, and he kept growing and growing. And he says the same thing with prescription drugs, you start a little bit small, then you have a lot of develop tolerance, then you want a little bit more, and then more and more, and there is no end to it. Because you want that high. And to in order to get that high, you need to give getting more and more from soft drugs into hard drugs into really terrible drugs until it devastates you, until it devastates you, right? And it will kill you. And you talked also about selling drugs,

00:52:39 --> 00:53:18

and it's all about crime that is associated with drugs, and you can talk about Subhanallah many other things that you will eventually compromise. It's not only stealing, but it's also prostitution, or committing acts just simply to feed the habit. See, Think about what a person is sacrificing just for the sake of saying what? Yes, the first time? Yeah, I'll try it. Yes, it's interesting. Yeah, what's the harm in it. So if we were to see the end result of it, you would never commit that, right. And until you know, the fact that people will start just injecting themselves with things that they know will devastate it will know will kill them, but they just cannot escape

00:53:18 --> 00:53:45

it. Right then simply cannot escape it. They know that they know that when I take this, I may not wake up. They know this. And when they say that, that's it, I'll take the chance. So you understand how devastating and how mind warping that thing is. So when something is haram, understand very well why Allah Allah, Allah said that It's haram isn't simply want to restrict and deny you, it will kill you. Right?

00:53:56 --> 00:54:09

So we're talking about heart and body, how do you contrast heart and heart and soul, we see the heart is the vehicle, right by which the soul comprehends understands,

00:54:10 --> 00:54:32

relates to the world. So just like if we say, well, how is your soul able to relate to the world we say mind and body and my body and mind, and then the body as well. So the soul uses the mind and the heart and the body, to understand the world and understand what's around it. So we're talking about the heart, we really are talking about the soul. Right? So

00:54:33 --> 00:54:59

and the heart itself though it's it's physically there to serve the purposes of the soul. It's not the entirety of the soul, obviously, because the soul exits on the heart space. So it's a vehicle that the soul will use, to understand to develop to purify itself, right. So when we say flemons occa, but thought Habermann de ser to ski and titsa we say with this the entity of the heart, we really mean the soul itself, but the heart is

00:55:00 --> 00:55:02

vehicle right the gateway yeah

00:55:07 --> 00:55:12

okay, I don't see anything online. So which is good anybody here

00:55:13 --> 00:55:14


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

what it is?

00:55:22 --> 00:55:25

Yeah. So, my question is

00:55:33 --> 00:55:33


00:55:35 --> 00:56:18

So the question is that there are things that there are sins that we commit on a daily basis, we may not be aware of it all the time, do they also lead them down the path of committing more sins? And we say it does and they do, because any sin leads to another sin, any sin any small sin so, small sins will lead to bigger sins and bigger sins will lead to disbelief right. So, any small sin will lead to another small sin like it and then bigger sins and bigger sins and so on. So the question then that could follow that which is what then how do we protect ourselves from it because, as you said, they're not always acknowledged they're not always visible. So, how do you kind of stop that

00:56:18 --> 00:56:45

effect and you start by that effect first of all by engaging in kind of daily is defer asking Allah for forgiveness stuff that Allah stuff that Allah stuff because you want that to erase whatever happened during the day. Right so that that thing builds on top of it. So asking for is too far and then also praying with the intention and making make and we'll do it with the attention of erasing sins.

00:56:46 --> 00:57:24

So when you make will do your sins are forgiven like they come out with the water so make them we'll do it with that intention, praying with that intention could anything that happens between one salah and the other can be forgiven Salah to the Salah, each salah, so Salah with that intention will do with that intention and then is still far will erase the sins, but it just doesn't stop there. It will also give you awareness of the things that you're doing wrong. So we say I'm not aware of everything that I'm doing wrong. But when increase a better. There'll be increased sensitivity, greased obedience, increased decoy increased sensitivity to the wrong things that we're doing.

00:57:24 --> 00:57:59

She'll catch yourself saying something wrong, which before you didn't, but now you can Oh, this is haram. I shouldn't be saying this. You'll stop. Oh, this is wrong. I shouldn't then you'll stop. She'll start cleansing yourself because there's more good. That will displace the bad. Right? Kinda you can see more. And he can feel he could feel it. I shouldn't be doing this. I shouldn't be so into it saying that. Well, why do you feel it because your heart is changing. So this feels wrong. It's the site feels wrong. Just like a reminder. Like you could be watching the news you could be going online and you could find yourself catch yourself staring at women's faces, but you haven't

00:57:59 --> 00:58:33

you're not conscious of it. Right? Because you're just looking at faces, right? What attracts men right? What attracts you to anything? A YouTube video right or a commercial or what? How beautiful the woman is. So you find yourself clicking but you're not aware why you're clicking but she's beautiful. So you click or when when she's speaking? Okay you're not looking at the man you're looking at the woman behind him he's speaking but you're looking at the woman right? Or something like that. So when do you catch yourself because this is common you don't know.

00:58:34 --> 00:59:05

But then when you hear from somebody oh you shouldn't be looking and woman and then this is haram or whatever you next time you do it you catch yourself doing it you say okay, I'm going to look the other way or I'm not going to click on that thing. Or I'm just listened to the audio something like this. So what do you catch yourself? Then you have what cut the road but the path of that sin suddenly continued like this. Oh, this is gossip. This is envy. This is backbiting this is wrong we shouldn't be so the more that the more good you put in your life the less evil has a space you know to kind of prosper and lead to more evil

00:59:17 --> 00:59:20

should they bulldoze themselves and try to

00:59:22 --> 00:59:26

rank a certain amount of what God created

00:59:29 --> 00:59:31

or should they try and steps

00:59:33 --> 00:59:33

but then

00:59:36 --> 00:59:38

reach that number right now by

00:59:40 --> 00:59:42

slowly, slowly.

00:59:45 --> 01:00:00

I see now. So I have a question. It's a good practical questions. So if you want to adopt a bother, should you jump all the way to the end right? So push yourself so instead of not without

01:00:00 --> 01:00:40

Let's say you're not paying any voluntary Salas. And now you want to pray 10 Rock as a de? Versus Do you start slow and you say I'll start with two for some time and then four for some time, and then so on and so on. Now, the problem with the you know, that jumped that sudden jump is that as it happened, suddenly, it could stop suddenly, right? Because now you're strong, and you're enthusiastic. And you have the energy to say, Okay, let me do it, and you do a lot. But you're not used to it yet. So you tolerate it for the first days, first week, first month, then you get tired, because you're not really used to it yet, then you start to stop, and we're skip. So the best and

01:00:40 --> 01:00:49

more assured way most assured way of adopting a practice is gradualism. Right? So go, you know, don't jump go to,

01:00:50 --> 01:01:20

and establish that too, until it's a habit, then for and establish it as a habit. And yes, you may say to yourself, am I wasting time because I could be praying 10 already. So amaze, think that you're building for the future, something that will be lasting, adopting time Allah to attend all at once risks, you abandoning all of that later, and not being able to come back to it because you think to yourself, I failed. I tried and I failed. So something's wrong with me, or something's wrong with this. So rather than do this,

01:01:21 --> 01:01:41

just like you're not reading a book, right? If you want to establish a habit of reading, and you really want to read a lot, you say, 100 pages a day. Okay, you could do it for one or two days, then you get tired of this. But if you could do five pages a day, then you have a habit. And if you have a habit then you want because now you can build on that habit. So gradually is a lot better.

01:01:43 --> 01:01:45

Let me see if there's something online

01:01:54 --> 01:02:19

when we are going through hardship, do we view it as we have to look at what swung we're doing? Or is it from Allah to elevate our ranks as a test? Now this is like, of course, a very common question, right? Like when we're going through hardship, do we look at it as we've done something wrong, or Allah is elevating us? And the thing here, the first thing here is

01:02:20 --> 01:02:21

we've said before,

01:02:22 --> 01:02:24

you don't have

01:02:25 --> 01:02:43

an in into Allah's intention behind that testing. Like, no one can come and tell you Allah tested you or Allah, this is doing this. Because Allah is elevating you, or Allah is punishing you. How are they? How are they going to know? So this is what Allah has xojo First, so you're asking about something that is late.

01:02:44 --> 01:03:04

But we said that the best way for you to know is to look at your reaction. And what that affliction and hardship is leading you to do. So if it's leading you closer to Allah azza wa jal, then you understand that this is good for you. Whether we say it was because of a sin that we did or not.

01:03:05 --> 01:03:22

By the way, I've just like the brother was saying we sin every single day, literally every single day. So yeah, a lot most. Maybe for some of us, all that we face is because of a sin that we committed but that's not Allah hating you.

01:03:23 --> 01:04:05

Right? That's what do you say Allah is punishing me? Is Allah Allah hating you? That Allah azza wa jal is waking you up and bringing you closer to him? So it's not a symptom thing that is bad. So it depends on your reaction. So if that thing brings you closer to Allah, this was good for you. Don't worry about Was it because of my sin or not? Because Allah wants to elevate me or not. If your reaction is good, then you're being elevated. And it's taking away those sins. And this is something good for you. So your reaction determines it. If your reaction on the other hand is terrible, lack of patience, lack of Eman, then this sin was not good for you. And it wasn't good for you. Because

01:04:05 --> 01:04:33

you reacted badly. So this is what we say. I know that. And it's, this is an emotional question. I understand it. And the motion question because now under hardship, I want to know, Allah loves me or hates me, because he thinks Allah hates me. Right? That's the question is not whether it's about a test or a punishment because of a sin. Does Allah hate me? We say If Allah hated you, he would not test you.

01:04:34 --> 01:04:53

That's, that's the answer. If Allah hated you, he would interest you. But Allah hates whom he loves. I'm sorry, Allah tests. So may Allah said the first one did not make sense. Allah tests whom he loves. Hi. So if you're being tested and you're making dua, and you're trying to fix your life, and that is a sign of what

01:04:55 --> 01:04:59

a sign of love, you're on the right way. Don't worry then about why it happened.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:08

This happened for good reasons. But if you're going the opposite direction then that is a tragedy and that is a dangerous sign. Right?

01:05:10 --> 01:05:13

So I'm seeing anyone here has anything else?

01:05:15 --> 01:05:26

No, we're good. Inshallah tape insha Allah so next week there's a conference so back in sha Allah on the 19th Evening last zodion Subhanak along with the hemlock a shadow Elijah he learned the stuff

01:05:27 --> 01:05:27


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

The last
