smithdown de la salatu salam ala rasulillah de wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa Salaam.

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

So inshallah, just a quick reminder, maybe there's no need for that reminder. But of course next week we're off because of the

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

And maybe we'll see we'll see how much we cover today it's possible that we cover a lot that the week when we come back in Sharla that'll be the conclusion of this book, but we'll see inshallah, we're not gonna rush, but it's a possibility inshallah.

00:00:48--> 00:00:55

The last thing we talked about, if you remember, we touched on, because that's the length The last thing he said. He said, we'll meet up with

00:00:57--> 00:01:08

him Allah and his advice. And by the way, this advice is supposed to be built in practice. It's not just something that we get to know and

00:01:09--> 00:01:24

be entertained by or spend time learning. It's also something that he's saying, you know, do this and do that. Louder. Okay, can bring it closer about inshallah could fix it.

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

I don't know if this is better, or Is this okay?

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

Maybe not. Okay.

00:01:40--> 00:01:55

So this is something that has to be built and incorporated into our own practice. So when he's talking about, in fact, from the beginning of the book to the end of the book is about where we're supposed to do. So now is section about john.

00:01:56--> 00:02:06

And he says, you know, Malia can do I can do I know for sure. Let your daddy he's gonna teach you how to make

00:02:07--> 00:02:54

lunch let you be beholder and you have to show up with humility and submissiveness to Allah has no agenda. This is how you can approach Allah how are you going to be asking Allah zildjian he says Be humble Are you sure? What will care in water and while crying and pleading with Allah azza wa jal to grant you and give you and forgive you for in Ababa home park because some of them have said in Nila Allah mahina yesterday, boo Leah Robbie, I know when Allah azza wa jal is going to answer my door. But he sees these signs is what are these signs? Karla Elijah, he says when my heart is connected to Allah and it's fearful of Allah, it feels that fear of Allah, it's in a walk shadow God and my

00:02:55--> 00:03:44

skin shivers I feel the shivers are felt III and my eyes well up with tears were footie Holly Phaedra. And I keep making dua to Allah azza wa jal, he opens the door for me. So he's saying that Allah here opens the door of the art, so I'm making it and I'm physically reacting to it. My skin, my eyes, what else did he say? And my heart are all reacting to it. He says these are signs that I am connected to my doula. And he says that's a sign that Allah is accepting my doula. And he also records those images that have said to Sharon OSHA, he, she said, Emma, did you do push it around? It says don't shiver sometimes. And I think she means from the fear of Allah from the love of Allah

00:03:44--> 00:04:00

with connection to Allah when reading the Quran, don't you sometimes get this shiver? He says yes, harlots Federer in the heart, he said, then make that moment. For us I use the job or in the data, because do indeed, is accepted at that moment.

00:04:01--> 00:04:33

When you're reacting to the remembrance of Allah and reacting to your data and very close to it, he says, is to be accepted them. Now where do they bring this from, but that doesn't directly come from the sooner the prophet SAW this. And he says, if you see 123 means that there is being accepted. They're taking it from the fact that you're present and conscious. This is what they're talking about. You're fearful, you're loving of Allah, you're present and you're conscious. And you feel that proximity to ally says that is a sign that your dog

00:04:34--> 00:04:48

is being accepted that Allah wants from you to make dua, and he wants from you to make dua because he wants to accept that from you. He allowed you to it so that he can accept it, right? For the helicoverpa dk till he opens the door for you so that you would do what?

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

Enter.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

He opens the door so you can enter so we opened the door of your house so that you can enter that's what he wants from you. So when he facilitates

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

Throughout for you, or he facilitates without arrogance By the way, but facilitates any act of obedience for you. And he makes it easy. He does that so that you would do it and he would accept it from you. So that's a good sign. That's a good sign you find in yourself that you're eager to pray and eagerly fat eager to fast,

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

eager to make eager to donate, he opens this door so that he can accept that

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

from him.

00:05:27--> 00:06:09

And he says It is reported that Allah revealed to Musa alayhis salam. And again, it does not matter if this actually happened to move Salli ala Moana because these stories are recorded in these types of books without a chain. So and So said the law revealed to musalla a sinner. So here what's important is not whether that actually was revealed to Moosa or not, but the wisdom that is contained in it and if the wisdom that isn't contained in it is valid and sound we accept it without without attributing that necessarily to Sally's salon. If the wisdom is wrong we rejected because it's not coming from a profit through a authentic chain. But here it is said it is said that our

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

last sell to Moosa yeah moves either the curtain effect core knew about counterfeit.

00:06:16--> 00:06:22

It says oh Moosa when you want to remember me and mentioned my name mentioned me when you're shivering.

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

mentioned me when you're shivering, shivering out of what it can come out, as I said, fear of Allah xojo loving a loving Allah azza wa jal, but you're reacting your body is so close that it's reacting to my name well above

00:06:37--> 00:06:44

your limbs right or shaking, or either the attorney fetcher Elisa Nakamura economic and if you're going to make do

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

let your tongue stand behind your heart,

00:06:49--> 00:07:30

it's a nice expression for jolly Santa caminada is helping. So it's not the tongue that is just simply moving. Where's your Where's your heart? So you're saying where is your heart. So it's not that the tongue is simply moving, but the tongue is moving from behind the heart meaning is the heart primarily, that is making a drop. And the tongue is doing what? expressing the desire and the sentiments of the heart. So it's not hard without tongue without heart. It's hard, that is moving the tongue to say what it wants from Allah xeljanz. So the heart is engaged, engaged in a burger. And the tongue is engaged in a bad at the same time. And what happens when it's only the tongue and

00:07:30--> 00:07:43

the heart is not present? Well, Allah and Allah, Allah yesterday will do an album of our feeling that he knew that Allah does not excepted from a heart that is powerful and he absent, distracted.

00:07:45--> 00:07:54

So it's good that the tongue is moving with da it's good that the tongue is moving with vigor, but you want to really attach the heart to it, so that you really get the

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

answer from Allah has his origin

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

and he says, What is the bane ADF Akuma karma that even happier and he says if you stand before me, says between my hands stand that position or assumes the position of the humble, the insignificant one. What do men have circa here I would have been dumb and criticize yourself and blame yourself because it is most worthy of lane.

00:08:25--> 00:09:12

So what is it that Allah azza wa jal wants from you? Okay, when you're standing to plead and ask Allah as origin. Also, it was just me finishing finish this spot when our junior Hina tuna Jeannie bill has been watching, communicate with me when you're communicating with a fearful heart. What he said inside it and a truthful tongue. What is it that Allah azza wa jal wants from you and me in that position, when you're asking Allah for drop, he wants you to completely humble yourself before Allah completely submit to Him, completely assign all power to Allah subhanho wa Taala and all praise to him. And then all blame if there is any blame to the self, not to Allah, his origin. And

00:09:12--> 00:09:53

what humanity does and what a lot of us do, even as Muslims is that when we assign blame, we switch this around. We assign blame to Allah, the creator and to destiny and exonerate ourselves, or we're not responsible, we're good, and we don't deserve this. Rather than saying that we have done some things that are bad, it doesn't mean that we are horrible beings. Okay, because some people when they think like that they despair, they fall in despair, doesn't mean necessarily that we're horrible beings, but we have done some bad things and sometimes some horrible things. So it's these horrible things that distances from Allah and bring on the agony of sin and the agony of any

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

calamity in this life. So it says when you're standing before me completely, submit yourself to me. See, he was

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

As insignificant nothing before Me, me having everything and you having nothing and when you humble yourself like that before Allah azza wa jal that is when Alex observed that is the position

00:10:13--> 00:10:34

and one thing you know that comes to mind and we may relate it to one more couple of things that will come in Sharla is that one of the Elena on a new Tamia Rahim Allah, he said, he's a scholar, okay, big scholar, one of the biggest scholars and that we have, he says, When I research a topic,

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

and I don't find the answer in the books,

00:10:39--> 00:10:49

don't find the answer when people say what he used to do. He says he would go to a ruin nobody would know about it. But but they report that about him he would go to a ruin

00:10:50--> 00:10:54

and then he would prostrate Institut to Allah azza wa jal on the sand

00:10:55--> 00:11:37

for a long time, and he will say yeah, ma Lima Ibrahim, alumnium fahima Suleiman for him. He says, oh, teacher of Ibrahim Teach me all the one who gave scapes to the human understanding, give it to me, Allah, he was Salam. He's talking about the prophets of Allah. All you who taught them teach me and where does he what, what spot does he use a ruin, because that is the love spot, the least likely to inspire any arrogance in a human being because when you see it, you remember your own decay, and the decay of humanity. So you completely humble there and you take the most humble part of your body. That's what we do in our studio. And you put it as low as possible on sand. And he's

00:11:37--> 00:12:22

senior Allah teach me a lot Teach me Allah Teach me and it is then he says, When I do that, it is then that Allah has Odin starts giving him inside that he did not have before. So where does it come from? comes from that complete surrender to Allah has his origin. So he says here, well with America, Allah Allahu taala, entrust your affairs all of them to Allah azza wa jal was stopped three beignet a day here and throw yourself between his hands. Okay, so I want you to feel this as he's saying this. And in any way in any time inshallah this goes, longshoreman he can hear me let me know. Because he keeps dropping. So he says, Well hold with America Illallah in trust all of your

00:12:22--> 00:13:00

affairs to Allah azza wa jal. All of the things that are bothering you all the things that are distressing you that are heavy, you give that to Allah azza wa jal was thought to have been a de throw yourself between his hands, wash a culvert and let your heart feel and now hula Yana leukemia risk they will say the illa merkabah hula hula What do you wish they had the fee behavior that is similar to what he says a lot your heart feel that you're not going to get any risk, any provision or any good in this life, except that what Allah had written for you, even if you combine all the minds and planning of the heavens and the earth,

00:13:02--> 00:13:42

right behavior that is similar to law. If you were to gather every single being and the heavens and the earth, and gather all of their black planning and acumen and strength, physical strength and mental strength, and you see benefit me with anything that Allah did not right, it says we will not be able to grant me $1 that ally did not write for me that they will not be able to do so he says we're not your heart feel that like really feeling and no one on the earth and no one in the sky can help you except Allah as Odin and then those that Allah allows them to help you. So it like it flows through them to you because of Allah.

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

Because Allah wants them to do that for you.

00:13:47--> 00:14:28

While adriatica matakohe and nothing bad will happen to you except if Allah has written it for you. That's a Hadith, right? That the Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what are we still my argument is similar to a lot of even if everybody in the heavens and the earth unite against you. For in a masaba, Columbia, New York, Columbia Cooney, UC Berkeley says what has missed you was never going to hit you and what had hits you is never going to miss you can that's Heidi from the profits on the law audio system. And that's, that's one of the really important habits that we have to remember often. And remind others with it often that really feel that no one can benefit except

00:14:28--> 00:14:40

Allah and no one can harm except Allah has no agenda. Humanity doesn't have the power to harm you and benefit you. So that takes from you what does that do to you? It takes from your heart any fear that you have,

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

or any hope that you have, from or in humanity.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

It takes it away. So you're not going to do remember that we talked about Korea and we talked about showing off and performing deeds so that you will admire yourself. It says you're doing this

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

Because you still believe that humanity matters. And we can still help you. If you believe that everyone is as helpless as you are or less, you wouldn't do anything to gain their approval. So what are we going to do with their approval? What can he give me? If he's as helpless as I am?

00:15:19--> 00:15:40

like think about it, sometimes you want to help so and so, so many obstacles stop you from doing that you want to harm so and so. So many people stop you from doing this you are completely helpless. unless Allah decides that he's gonna open that road for you. Otherwise you're helpless since then, if everybody is helpless, as helpless as I am, what am I doing anything for their sake?

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

I want am I afraid of them and their criticism or anything?

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

So you're completely in a sense you're completely bulletproof.

00:15:51--> 00:16:06

You have that vest on you. And that vest is Allah destiny. And Allah is destiny says no one can actually shoot at you. Except with Allah decides that this bullet is gonna hit you. And by the way, if this bullet is going to hit you is going to hit you whether you standing there or not.

00:16:07--> 00:16:19

I'm concerned I'm saying you know, do consider the means the spell. Don't jump from a building tall building and say if Allah destines I will die. Okay, yeah, Allah has destined because you jumped.

00:16:20--> 00:16:33

So the means do matter. The means do matter. But we're saying that they do not matter without permission of Allah azza wa jal. So consider the means but don't assign so much importance and gravity to them. No, it's Allah as origin.

00:16:35--> 00:17:16

When he says something also that is beautiful. And to think about, well, and a man who will feel badly and I know him, Lisa, who will be awkward you lie to Allah worried about him and who was he basically, he will be nearly O'Malley, he says know that if someone is in the middle of the sea, hanging to a plank of wood, right, and the waves of the sea are playing with him, he does not need a lot more than you do. While you're in your home with your spouse and with your children inside your house. He does not need a lot more than you. And you do not need a lot less than him. Both of you are in fact in the same boat. You just don't see it. He's actually can see the danger around him. So

00:17:16--> 00:17:42

what he's doing he's hanging on to that plank and he's crying out here Allah, Allah Allah right. But we went in our safety and our cocoons, we don't see that. The only thing that we see is that I have my money and I have my car and I have my house and I have my family around so you feel safe and secure. But he says you're not more safe or secure than that man in the middle of the sea for in a suburban Nevada Javier de la la cama

00:17:43--> 00:18:02

de la dee da be added meaning that a law is as urgent is the one who can save this man in the sea or drown him. And you're right there your life and death is exactly in the same hand in the same of Allah and excuse me as instantaneous as the life and death of that person. You just don't see.

00:18:03--> 00:18:29

That's the difference. You just don't see it. For the doctor had a few kahnawake if you establish this as a truth in your heart, Fatima Allah He dialect the mother Latina de animonda Hola, sobre la la la la ilaha illAllah if you establish this as the truth in your heart, trust in Allah and rely on him like that that drowning person is trusting in Allah and relying on him call on a lot like that drowning person is

00:18:30--> 00:18:44

because both of us here and that person in the middle of the sea are exactly the same. We're exactly the same. How much does he need a lot? This is how much we need him. How much is he calling upon Allah? This is how much we should do it.

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

So that image to Pamela does reveal to us our complete and utter dependence on Allah zone.

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

Hello Annika Laura Justina shewhart. He says and also

00:18:59--> 00:19:42

take water in water is the avoidance of the Haram and the ambiguous suspicious things that's what he says which Tina b shubho had it yesterday. We should avoid the sugar. The sugar that looks a little bit like the hell out and a little bit like the Haram there's halal and haram mix in it. You don't know exactly is this Hello? Is it haram you don't know yet. So this is on a cabbie Nora. So in addition to avoiding the Haram, he says also put between yourself and the Haram, that layer that barrier of those suspicious or ambiguous or unclassified deeds, don't commit them, because indeed, the one who commits them is about to commit the Haram for innamorata Holden Hema Oceania coffee

00:19:42--> 00:19:58

again this is in reference to another Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If there is a protected area that a king has declared for himself, and you're grazing around it with your herd, you're around you and your animal you're about to go into it.

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

So if you are circling the haraam circling the Heron and that is those those suspicious areas are the things that are surrounding the Heron. You keep circling, circling, circling, eventually you're going to be falling into Haram. So is saying in your life employee that what are avoiding, avoiding the Haram and what looks like what is suspicious when you don't really know that it is clearly Hannah

00:20:24--> 00:20:50

on our alayka be lady philosophy, here we are because women know how he jack and he says and seek the night and be alone in it with your Creator with your rub with your sister sustainer. And as the things that you need from him, then as you need submit a list of your needs, then to Allah azzawajal whatever da la, da da da da and plead with him and submit yourself to Him.

00:20:52--> 00:21:18

in the world today, so can allow you if we find ourselves increasingly, a more modern Earth is the more of that, that we're increasingly alone. Okay, we were our other cell with ourselves more than we are with other people. You're with your phone, with your tablet with your email, online. This is usually you are with yourself. So we say Subhan Allah, the best person or the best one to be alone with is Allah has his origin.

00:21:20--> 00:21:46

Not yourself. Not any other human being, not chatting with anybody else but in communicating with Allah as origin. The best person to be alone with his Allah zildjian. And the best time to do this is at night. Why is it a night because it's quiet? Everybody's almost asleep. And you can concentrate on this conversation that you're having with Allah azza wa jal, and that is the virtue of the

00:21:47--> 00:21:57

night prayer. Why is it so excellent? Because it is that moment, where the heart and the tongue can be in agreement, both close to Allah azza wa jal

00:21:58--> 00:22:21

for in the hula, it's reported that someone came to Bishop, it's mentioned here, we'll just translate it. Someone came to Bishop l haffi. And he says, I have an issue. So he brought in this is what is your issue? He says peraturan anahita. You know, Kathy rolesor, ba da da da, he says, a man meaning himself a man who has a lot of debt. He cannot repay it.

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

I can't pay that debt. So what did he tell him? called Allah kv jiofi. He says, Seek,

00:22:30--> 00:23:10

okay, the interior of the night and literally translated, the joyful laid the interior of the night meaning that inside inside the night, go inside the night, because Jove is like a like a cave or anything that is interior, go inside the night and speak to a law surgeon or a Capitol feeling. He says, and I went to Abu Abu Abdullah, Mohammed or himolla, they asked him the same question, I have this debt, I cannot pay it. He says I like to feel like he said the same exact thing to him seek that interior of that night and pray to Allah has the gentle color for the language me and other both of these two directed me to the same thing.

00:23:12--> 00:23:50

Without any previous agreement between them, two individuals, different individuals living at the same time. Visual halfie is known more as a worshipper of Allah hazarded not as a scholar, but as a great worshipper of Allah. I heard of Mohammed as a great scholar, plus a great worshipper of Allah Zoda. So he went and asked to great people of his time. In fact, we can grow and we can argue, at the time of Mr. Mo law, it was probably among the greatest if not the greatest, and Allah knows best. So he asked among to among the greatest people in his time, so imagine you yourself taking that journey with a specific problem.

00:23:52--> 00:24:02

And not just coming to this message or not coming to the city, traveling and seeking Who do you think is the best person that money can enable you to?

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

And you say, Okay, I have this problem, what do I do? And he just tells you this and it can be Joe feeling.

00:24:09--> 00:24:28

As if he is telling you, the answer was already with you. You didn't know the answer is already within. The key to your problems is already with you but you don't know yet. You just need someone to reveal that to you. And what is this revelation? Ask Allah has his origin in the middle of the night?

00:24:29--> 00:24:44

Because when you ask Allah in the middle of the night and we'll get more of it in sha Allah when he asked Allah in the middle of the night, it is then that Allah azza wa jal descends and it's then that Allah is saying asked me so I would give you a letter telling you asked me, so I will give you

00:24:45--> 00:24:54

so keep asking Allah during that time, and depending on your need, so Canada law if you need a small sometimes it could be solved in a couple of nights.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

If you need is big, it could be solved in a week or two or bigger a month or two, but it's

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

You never give up because here you're asking, the one that you truly believe, has, has, somehow what you will have the treasuries of the heavens and the earth are with him, Allah azza wa jal, he can give anything, as well as he can take anything.

00:25:14--> 00:25:26

And then he says what he does the person who didn't want to clean on the anomaly on alayka. Now, Lake assign your only DUI cases, when you ask a lot, ask him while you're certain that he's looking at you.

00:25:28--> 00:25:32

He's observing what you're doing. He can hear you and he's close to you.

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

And that's important. You're not calling for in the community, the owner Eva, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told the Sahaba you're not calling him on someone who's distant

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

or not present. You're asking Allah as Isaiah who's very close to you, when they were under camels, he said he's closer to one of you. And then the neck of the camel to you

00:25:55--> 00:26:08

while he Ulla as it is above his throne. But he is closer to you than that neck of camel, the camel, which is your right that you're sitting on it is closer to you than that. So you're not asking someone who's distant.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

And what brings Allah closer to you is your supplication

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

and you will feel it in your heart.

00:26:18--> 00:26:24

When you make that you will feel it in your heart, especially at night when it's quiet, no distractions.

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

And when you are in your schedule, or you're raising your hand and you making this drought you feel yourself getting closer and closer and closer to Allah and aligned time is getting closer to you.

00:26:36--> 00:26:52

But you have to make this believing that Allah is listening to you not say after a few nights. Allah did not answer me must not be listening to me. No, you have to believe that he's really there and he's listening to you. It's enough that he had opened the door of your app for you.

00:26:54--> 00:27:10

Was it I think on top of the Allahu anhu said it says in the Lakshmi Mohammed II job Allah Muhammad Allah I'm not carrying with me the burden of the answer of my do I carry with me the burden of Am I going to make do it or not? The answer is guaranteed

00:27:11--> 00:27:34

the answer once I ask the answer is guaranteed. So I'm not worried about that part of the Act. I'm worried about will Allah allow me when I say that they will you know distance mean from Allah hazardous will not be able to talk diabetic is close to you able to answer your call Leia to Alabama who say nothing is too great for him.

00:27:36--> 00:27:40

Nothing is too great for him to pan on with Allah. So when you are asked ask

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

when you ask me, within reason, what am I gonna say? There's some ridiculous things that you're not going to ask in Shell All right, they don't make sense. But if you're going to ask Allah don't say, I mean, what can Allah give me this? And he? Will I be Will I be able to be in the highest levels of gender? Ask?

00:28:02--> 00:28:40

ask why not ask for that? Why not? Ask Allah. Allah I want to make Dawa. I want millions to be guided through me. You ask it if this is really in your heart, ask it. Why not ask this from Allah, it's enough that Allah knows that this is a sincere intent that you have. You want that from him. And maybe he opens the door for Tao for you, and only a couple of people maybe accept Islam. First, this is enough, but to have accepted Islam. But more than that, if Allah had opened that door, and you want that door with the intention, I want eventually millions to accept Islam. And he takes your soul before those millions except what does he give you?

00:28:42--> 00:29:13

The reward of that thing that you wanted to seek, if the intention is true, the thing your goal will be given to you. So why stop short? Why belittle yourself I said, Can it be yes Bismillah ask Allah Allah to Allah who shaped in this life and we love this life, we get attached to it. Whatever it is a position, a marriage, a child, a house, whatever it is, you get so attached to this particular thing, and becomes so great in your heart that when you don't get it, you're devastated.

00:29:14--> 00:29:52

But you don't really know if it's good for you or not. And you can think of or ask and you will find out example of people who wanted something and when they got it they discovered that it was really bad for them. if not sooner, they discovered that it was bad for them later. So how do you know if it's good for you or not? So don't get so attached to it say yeah, Allah if it is good for me, especially matters of this dunya if it is good for me, I'll give that to me. And if it's not good for me, take it away. Take me away from it and give me something that is better. This is like a staccato like drawing is too hard but without praying God is Allah because he just making to us so

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

ask Allah that particular thing.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

Find them your ID luckily Java talathi is merely Java terminology.

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

This

00:30:01--> 00:30:43

photon of Abu Qatada La Jolla. In ACTA Rafi Hurtado, he says, If Allah does not hasten and give you whatever you're asking for, don't despair. Don't give up on the fact that he's going to give this to you, or at least answer you. And don't get bored. Because it says it's reported that someone has said, Indeed, Allah had chosen for someone, if he had asked him for something, and that person keeps pleading with Allah, to give to him, he says, that is part of Allah's choice for him, that he wants this person to keep talking to him. And for a lot to keep listening to him. And for that person to keep making that, because this job that he's making is better than the thing that he's asking.

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

You see, because what is what is this to

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

be bad.

00:30:48--> 00:31:29

So that, that a bad ally saying, uh, let me extend it a little bit, so that you can engage in more a better, you will be grateful for it later, when you meet me, okay, and you will look at your deeds and you say I made so much and so much as default because of this son, or this daughter, or this spouse or this house or this position, or this or this disease. And it's this thing that will take you to Gemini, so Wow, I wish it was even longer. At that moment. I wish it was even longer because at least I could have made even more and more of it. So this is a burger. So he says if it is long, and it's not coming quickly, it says that is a last choice right there. hydrolock and it's true is

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

chosen what is best for you at this moment.

00:31:32--> 00:31:42

Just to extend it so that you keep coming closer and closer. And if you give yourself to a law surgeon at this moment, you don't know how this is going to change not only then but forever.

00:31:43--> 00:31:59

It can change you completely. That experience of losing something, being afraid of something and praying to Allah repeatedly and giving yourself to Him so Panasonic completely changing. So open yourself and give yourself to Allah has his origin.

00:32:00--> 00:32:16

Well Allah and Allah to Allah is another ilica walima Naka alto Mata medica woman jack Wofford, Toby Howard, he can be how're he Kaduna he alpha, alpha, gamma, delta. Gamma can be extremely thorough merata he says know that if Allah is looking at you,

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

looking at your heart, and he knows that he had made you or you had made him

00:32:22--> 00:32:39

your refuge, and Allah is your refuge, and the one that you depend on no one else, and the one that you ask and no one else Ephrata will be how many you've asked him more than you've asked humanity or sometimes without asking humanity depending on your

00:32:41--> 00:33:08

situation, and depending on how much help you need for some situations and some help and some personalities, you can only ask a lot no one else. And for other people you need to ask Allah and then consult other people to say I mean, do I need more help or not. But if he sees that you're relying completely on him and you're asking him alone, he will give you better than what you're asking and will honor you with more than what you are requesting or expecting.

00:33:10--> 00:33:13

That is his generosity. If he sees that from you,

00:33:14--> 00:33:27

that you completely are surrendering to him. His generosity has no limits. You want this particular thing this small thing he will give you so many things that are better and greater. And beyond that one thing that you're asking,

00:33:28--> 00:33:33

but he wants to see the inside of this person, his heart or her heart.

00:33:35--> 00:34:20

So he says find a generic sci fi he gives you what he wants. Soon. So have combined between giving you your need and the best of this dunya and the FL if you ask him in this manner, and if he does not quickly respond to your dua, he will give you something better than it. So you are good either way. Whether he gives it to you or not, you're good either way. And that is the kind of trade that you want to be in. When there is no loss kind of business transaction you want to be in or it's always win win. You will never lose when you're dealing with a losses origin if you ask either he gives you exactly what you wanted. And so you got that. And plus, if you asked him you're like this

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

is good Give it to me that he giving you the best of this dunya or if he does not give it to you had also chosen what is best for you.

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

He says he had was study Illuminati he wanted to be a bad it

00:34:36--> 00:34:39

is going now into a stage of

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

we're in the beginning of

00:34:43--> 00:34:48

and maybe felt this European in Sharla and all of us do feel it.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Or you begin by asking Allah as his origin for something and that would be your primary concern. I'm there in this pm. I'm there before fudger on there after the Salah. I'm there in the studio.

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

Because I'm asking for this thing, and that's your primary concern, you can move from that into a time, or to a feeling, where you start enjoying the conversation that you're having with Allah as a surgeon, because it makes you feel better.

00:35:15--> 00:35:15

Yeah.

00:35:17--> 00:35:36

Because you can forget about that pain or that anxiety. And you move to a time, where you are actually enjoying this conversation with Allah zodat. And you feel better once it's over. I mean, in a sense, because you've given it to Alon you've spoken to Allah. So when you're done, you feel better. So you keep doing what you keep coming back to it.

00:35:37--> 00:35:48

Because you want to feel better. And being close to Allah makes you feel better. So you keep coming back to it, and coming back to it and coming back to it and then you will find sweetness in communicating with online.

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

That just conversation with Allah conversing with him asking with him, spending time with a lot itself is sweet.

00:35:56--> 00:36:02

This moment, that primary concern that you had that brought you to do may become secondary.

00:36:03--> 00:36:11

You may forget about it or be not forget about it. But it becomes secondary in comparison to the feeling that you're having when you're making them do.

00:36:12--> 00:36:23

So then he says, What's the Illuminati find comfort in this private conversation that you having with him, and find the sweetness of that ibadah feel it.

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

And that comes out of loving allies.

00:36:29--> 00:36:56

Really like being immersed in the love of Allah, that you're enjoying that conversation and being close to him more than you enjoy being close to your dearest friend, but dearest person that you have on this earth, you know, that comfort that you have, when you sitting next to them, and how happy they make you feel and secure. You will feel more of that when you're with a law soldier, much more of it when you were the law. So it's reported that so they manage da da, da, da, da, da da.

00:36:57--> 00:37:01

Howdy. So somebody visited another and he was crying? He says,

00:37:02--> 00:37:34

Why am I Why are you crying? He's asking him, why are you crying? So he's trying here to comfort him. But also to make him feel that sweetness that we talked about. He says if you see that people are standing in prayer at night, and they are standing in their mahari This is the house mystery that you have, you know, play your place of worship. And they're standing on their feet, and they're communicating in private with Allah azzawajal asking him pleading with him for a lot to release their next this is fee calculator obey Him to save them from hellfire.

00:37:36--> 00:37:40

And their tears are, you know, dropping on their cheeks.

00:37:42--> 00:38:24

And then Allah zildjian here looks at them. While in they are in that condition standing by themselves at night on their feet and they're crying and they're asking Allah savers. It says then Allah looks at them. And he says, Yeah, God, this is behind him. And that economy was Tara, hi, Mona, Mona Jackie. He says the one who finds sweetness in talking to me, and comfort and being close to me, is under my protection, and is beloved to me, by a meaning I'm looking at them. I'm protecting them, and they are dear to me. Like look at them, sort of reminds us of that. A Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, when he mentioned that Allah looks at the people of autofab

00:38:26--> 00:38:56

when they were coming to him and asked him for forgiveness, so it reminds us of that he says when he says looking at them in this position at this time, and what they're doing and what they're asking, he says, I love these people, and they're under my protection, says the real Why don't you call on them and say Why are you so afraid? Do you know? Or have you heard of a beloved, who punishes those whom he loves? Have you heard of someone if he loves people that he would punish them

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

and pay for your German rupee? Or how would I?

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

How would it be or possible for me that I would let them stand in Sadat, while they're crying and asking me for all of this? And how would it be possible for me to punish them after all of this?

00:39:13--> 00:39:27

It says, I swear by my by my honor, the reward is going to be that when they come to me, I'll reveal, okay, I'll reveal the barrier so that they can look at my face as long as they want to, and I will look at them.

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

As is like those types of people. He says it because he is comforting someone who's crying, and it's good to cry out of your job, but he also wants to bring him this balance and he's saying, If you love Allah for Allah and you're worshiping Allah azza wa jal Don't you know what is happening? You can see it but don't you know what is happening over there that Allah is looking at you. And again, without inspiring pride in us, we're a product of your company, because pride is the disease of the shaitaan because he tells you now Allah is happy with you. That's it.

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

You already know that happiness if you feel that happiness that should motivate you to more of it, and to more humility, not less of that act and more arrogance. So if inspires more arrogance, you know, this is the path of the shavon more humility. It's coming from Allah azza wa jal, but it says that Allah is looking at you. And he's so happy with you

00:40:23--> 00:40:56

that he is telling you that I love you. And it's not possible for me to look punished to punish anyone that I love. And I did not make you stand up at night to pray to send you to hellfire. You should be afraid of hellfire. But I did not facilitate make it easy for you because I want to send you to hellfire. I want to bring you into Jenna so that you will get the greatest thing in life, the greatest thing in existence for you to look at me and for me to look at you. That'd be the greatest thing that people will get when they enter agenda by the will of Allah has origin.

00:40:58--> 00:41:07

And he also codes here some worship of Allah as the villain, what's the thing that he was saying when he was worshipping Allah, these are nice things to have done nice thing to,

00:41:10--> 00:41:49

to feel in sha Allah, you know, maybe as you're worshiping Allah as dogen. Or as you're engaging in your a battle, you can remember some of these things, not memorize them. Just remember them remember some of these feelings? So he's talking to Allah and he is saying, what is that ego agenda? I'll just translate. He says, What is the Tico agenda? I swear by you by your honor by Your Majesty, when I sinned, I did not want to dissipate disobey you not willingly disobey you. That's not why I sent I did not want to bring upon myself your anger. Okay? Because I know fully Well, how severe your anger can be. I'm not an ignorant person. I know how severe your anger can be. I did not want this

00:41:49--> 00:41:58

punishment to come even close to me. And I did not think that you were looking at me and belittle that look.

00:41:59--> 00:42:33

I did not take that lightly. It's not because of this. What happens immediately enough, see, but it is myself my ignorant self that made this sin and disobedience beautiful to me. Well, Anatole, shekhawati he says my misfortune pushed me to do it. So I know your majesty and your greatness and the punishment that I could receive. And then you're looking at me, and it's not that I took any of that lightly, but it's just my own weakness that had pushed me to do this. work around a city called mercy LA and that might consider things that you have concealed my sins so far, that deluded me

00:42:34--> 00:43:01

because I wasn't exposed so far. And that concealment pushed me to believe that again, I can do something else and it also will be concealed. Faster farsight to Kavita honey, so when I disobeyed you, I disobedient disobeyed you with ignorance will have to obey God. And when I when I disobeyed, I disobeyed you. And I did sometimes panelo would that disobedience all my best to disobey fell and I mean either become a nuclear loony. So who will now save me from your punishment?

00:43:02--> 00:43:03

Or be heavily manaka simonian?

00:43:05--> 00:43:09

Like Annie, whoa, hold on to, if you disconnect from me.

00:43:11--> 00:43:15

So what is he expressing? Yeah, I disappoint you.

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

But I need you.

00:43:18--> 00:43:26

And if I if you disconnect from you, and if I move away from you, and you go away from me, who else is there for me? And who is there to save me?

00:43:29--> 00:43:37

So yet yet, I disobeyed you, and I knew that I disobeyed you, but I have no other recourse away but to come back to you and seek your forgiveness.

00:43:39--> 00:43:52

He says what's the water homeopathy by Enya de cada indica lemon juice? He says, What a shame. How ashamed I will be What a disgrace if I stand before you on the Day of Judgment. If I was going to ask you,

00:43:53--> 00:44:09

what about this? And what about this sin? And then I hear the call of Oh, those who are light of sin pass. Go to Jenna. And those who are heavier of sin stay on your place will I be with those who are light of sin or heavier of sin?

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

He says, Woe to me.

00:44:13--> 00:44:17

The longer I live, the greater the greater sins I earned.

00:44:19--> 00:44:28

So he's looking at himself and he's blaming himself and is admitting his guilt. And the greater the older I get, the greater my calamity

00:44:30--> 00:44:42

firmata to work he come out when am I going to repent? When will I come back to Allah azzawajal Okay, I miss the youth time I miss the youth worship Baba Baba.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

So he's if you're still young, know that you're in a great network of Allah azza wa jal because you still have, at least in theory, a lot of time before your death is supposed to come. And that is a time where Allah will love for you to obey Him.

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

Because the distractions are many, so many distractions, I don't know if I told you this or not before. You mentioned in some of the books, he says like youth is a form of insanity,

00:45:11--> 00:45:23

youth, verbal, mental junoon a form of insanity because, because there's so many bad things you can do, and you still don't have the maturity and experience to balance, okay, your ability.

00:45:25--> 00:45:48

So with all of these distractions, if you obey Allah and you are close to him, these are one of the people who deserves to be shaded on the Day of Judgment, when there is no shade except the shade of the throne of Allah xojo meaning that you are among the special ones, seven categories, right among the special ones, you pass the test, flying colors.

00:45:49--> 00:46:29

So he's saying you mean he's standing by with Allah azzawajal and he's looking at his life and what he had done in it, and he's blaming it. And that blame, bring on brings on regret brings on asking Allah for forgiveness, and repentance. So you can ask Allah zodion you can converse with Allah in this way in similar ways in different ways. As long as you're speaking and talking to Allah as his origin. This is what is required of us to be always close to Allah, not close to our phones, not close to our tablets not close to our friends who are 1000s of miles away and yet we're closer to them than we are close to Allah azza wa jal Allah is closer to you than this friend was close see

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

before Allah is closer to you than your camel right now is closer to you than your phone

00:46:36--> 00:46:41

is closer to you than your phone. So that we pay more attention to our phone and spend more time with it than with Allah.

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

So inshallah, let me stop here and see if there are any questions or comments or get ready.

00:47:08--> 00:47:13

So the words are in your, the words are in your head, and and what

00:47:16--> 00:47:44

now when we say the heart, we mean by the heart and the mind at the same time. Now we mean by the heart and the mind at the same time and the more that you feel, the more impact than that and that they could will have you feel it in yourself to begin with even before you see the outcome coming from Allah as though Did you feel it in yourself that when you make a dua and your heart is with that, that comforts you that comforts you right? Because the drop is there, because the heart is there? And the mind is also with it

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

with

00:47:53--> 00:48:03

just in your mind, inshallah that's fine. If you're feeling it into your heart and it's just in your mind, but your mind is in that conversation with Allah, you're good, you're good inshallah. You're good.

00:48:04--> 00:48:17

Not necessarily not, it's not necessary to verbalize at that moment, that there are, as long this conversation in your mind is going. Of course, it's more complete when the tongue is also speaking, that's full.

00:48:18--> 00:48:27

But sometimes when you're with other people, when you're driving when doing something else and it comes in your mind and your mind having this conversation with Allah, that is good. That is good.

00:48:44--> 00:49:05

Nam. So those moments you want to inshallah, these moments, those moments when you're crying and very close to Allah, right, you said they can happen to during the day, at night, maybe not. You're tired or something. So whenever they happen, they are NEMA from Allah taken, whenever they happen. They're annamma from Allah, so just so take it, but also we're not only

00:49:07--> 00:49:27

waiting for them to happen, we can create them. And we can create them by praying and making dua and reading the Koran and the more that you stay with it, the more that your heart softens, and you can reach that state. So maybe at times when at night, you're tired and you're sleepy and all of this so that your mind really can't concentrate.

00:49:28--> 00:49:29

Yeah.

00:49:31--> 00:49:48

So hey, your body may not enable you to be fully, you know, cognizant of what you're saying, that's a possibility. But if you are if you try insha Allah to sleep during the day or you know, compensate for that sleep so that you're awake and fully conscious of what you're doing that at that moment at night, it'd be better and sharp.

00:49:54--> 00:49:58

It's best to or it's good practice to say if it's good for me

00:50:07--> 00:50:18

So hey, Zack Allah him. So the brother is saying that there are Gods from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that when you're asking Allah do not say Allah give me this if you wish.

00:50:20--> 00:50:55

Because it's really superfluous redundant. Fein Allah Allah mockery Allah because Allah has no one forces Allah so you don't have to see Allah if you wish it already there. Yeah, like Give it to me. And only if he wishes he's gonna give it to you and if he doesn't wish, so Allah the prophets Allah isn't missing, that's not part of Adam, with Allah xeljanz. So Zack Allah here, you know, that has added with it. Right? Like, think about like going and corresponding with a prime minister or with a president or with the queen, right? Some of them have etiquettes and how are you going to address them allows greater and higher, so there is added into so you have to learn the art of the art so

00:50:55--> 00:51:05

that your dog doesn't turn away is not turned away? So anyway, but that thing insha Allah is not included in it. Because there you're not seeing yellow If you wish, you sing Allah if you know it's good.

00:51:06--> 00:51:15

So it's distinct from it. And it is based on the DA obviously Cora because it was too hot. Exactly. See this year, Allah if this is good for me Give it to me. And if not, don't get

00:51:24--> 00:51:52

Oh, if you wish. Yeah, it could be it could be that if you saying if you wish, because you feel like you're being polite. But actually, it's not polite. It's not polite, like if you suppose so panelists all on a human realm. But if you suppose for instance, that there is a king and you say, Oh, can you give me this? If you wish me slap you, you know, I say, oh, who's who's gonna force me? Of course, if I wish. Of course, if I wish Take them away. Right? They can we don't come back. Right now let us know that a lot of this more merciful right is just just to give you an idea.

00:51:57--> 00:52:33

Okay, that's good. I say. He's saying that there are some people who may fear is too hard, because you're asking, and I'm afraid that the answer is another thing you like. So you don't want to ask you alive. This is bad for me. That's an instance where you're so too attached to this thing. Right? You're too attached to this worldly thing that you're asking for. That you are afraid that it not be good for you. So some people say I know that some people have said y'all a lot. If it's not good for me make it good for me and still give it to me. Right? still make it less like stubborn, right? It's like it's no good that you can make it good. Just change it so that it's good. I just wanted

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

whatever it is. It's not good. If it's not good. It's not good. So don't be afraid you're asking Allah azza wa jal. You don't want a lot to give you something that later on he will say Allah Why did you give it to me? Yeah, didn't I asked you that it was if it's good, give it to me if it's Why did you give it to me? So but you're asking for it, you're asking for it.

00:53:02--> 00:53:06

So if you will, let me see if I can read this and see if you ask Allah not to give you a long life

00:53:07--> 00:53:13

as the world is getting tough to stay in, on Islam, is that okay?

00:53:14--> 00:53:15

Fair inshallah.

00:53:17--> 00:53:27

So the question is that, can I ask for death? If I'm asking for death because of fitna? Right. So that's the question if I'm asking for death because of fitna

00:53:29--> 00:54:10

generally right, the prophets a lot he was in them said that the money and how to go notary during a salary. That's not not one of you asked for death because of the harm that has happened to him. Because you do not know. Right? If you're asking for it, or you're asking a lot to cut your life short, while there is still some good in it. So meaning that rather ask Allah azzawajal Aloma Haney Matt Ellington, higher the higher en de whatever Fatima unlimited data hired on via Allah, give me a life as long as you know that life is good for me and take my life when you go know that death is better for me. I'd say this is the best to do. That's the better to, to do. But to give you a full

00:54:10--> 00:54:27

answer, some of the alumni have said that when a person or in a time of fitna, and a person knows that it's difficult for him to endure that fitna, and it's a great fitna that is possible based on somebody that it's possible for him to wish for death and to ask for them.

00:54:28--> 00:54:59

But we will make this as the exception. Okay, as a small, small, small, tiny, tiny exception, because we do not know how you and I are going to interpret this fitna and then all of a sudden all of us are saying Allah take us away, take us away, right? So rather, I would say, adhere to this to art which is comprehensive from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because in it already, you're asking a lot for this. You're asking a lot because if there's a fitna and Allah knows that you cannot take it. A lot of things.

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

Because that's embedded in the DA, whatever funnyman, limited offer to take my life when you know that death is best for me. So already you're asking this, so ask that and leave it at that inshallah. But just to be honest, you know the answer. Yeah, some of the automotive said that. If it's a really strong fitna and you know that you cannot endure it that you can ask Allah for that. And that fitna typically is not a by the way. It's not a worldly fitna. It's a religious fitna. It's a fitna that is going to tempt someone religiously. It's not just, you know, pain here, or this or that. It's a religious fitna, because what you fear over there is that your religion is going to go

00:55:36--> 00:55:44

away, your religion is going to be lost. So if you really lose your religion, you lose everything. So you want to die before losing that religion.

00:55:49--> 00:56:16

Now, can you ask for the opposite to extend my life so that I can do more good, obviously, which is the first part of a hidden mountain in that higher hierarchy? All right, give me life, as long as life is good for me. And the Prophet sallallahu was in the middle out for his Sahabi and nomadic, but on the low on who that Allah would extend his life. Right? And he sets a lot he was setting them that have the best of deeds or of the best of people, my father.

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

My father,

00:56:19--> 00:56:33

who lives a long life and his deeds are good, and the best of people who lives a long life and his deeds are good, so you can ask for that. Alone melted. Are you asking me Give me a long life and also good deeds. So that's a legitimate drop based on that.

00:56:36--> 00:56:37

So

00:56:38--> 00:56:49

no one no one. Heaven Charlotte's so next week, inshallah we're off. The Saturday after inshallah we return just below here on the satanic Amal vmdk shadow Allah
