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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah OCAT

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

Alhamdulillah. Wa Salatu was Salam ala Mala and a V about the Hawala early he was laughing here.

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

Welcome dear brothers and sisters to class seven from our series tapes titled change of heart.

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

And we are on week seven, I think after this session, we may have three or more classes and then we will be concluding Bismillahi Tada taking a short break and resuming with a different series in sha Allah.

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

So this evening is a unique one.

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

Because we're due to be talking about another one of the actions of the heart.

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

One, however, which some of the scholars have said, that there are people who will meet Allah subhanaw taala, on the day of judgment without having ever experienced it.

00:00:57--> 00:01:07

And we are here on this evening to prevent ourselves from this type of outcome, and to meet Allah Almighty with an abundant portion of it in our hearts and in our actions.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

It is an act of worship,

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

which is perhaps one of the most overlooked

00:01:19--> 00:01:27

and neglected forms of a bad lies. It's also one of the most challenging acts of worship to live by.

00:01:29--> 00:01:51

When you hear the name of this act of worship, the very first thing that we will think about is Salah, because usually it is discussed in a context of Salah. What we're going to argue on this evening is that the domain of this act of worship extends far beyond and above sada as we shall find out.

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

It is an act of worship whereby a person

00:01:58--> 00:02:08

prostrates to his Lord in sujood, and may raise his head from the ground only to feel that his heart is still in frustration to Allah.

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

A person who raises his hands in dua, beseeching his Lord,

00:02:14--> 00:02:22

only to feel after lowering the hands, that your heart is still calling upon Allah and still imploring him

00:02:23--> 00:02:34

where you leave the message it physically, but you feel that you have left a part of you in the house of Allah, bowing and prostrating and remembering him.

00:02:35--> 00:02:47

A person who finishes reciting the Quran and still feels himself or herself immersed in the baraka in the light of the Quran, although they are no longer reading, what is this act of worship?

00:02:48--> 00:02:57

It is an act of worship whereby you buy a new cell and you live a very normal, upright, healthy, strong life. You trade you interact, you socialize,

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

but there is a inner corner inside of you calling upon Allah subhanho wa Taala around the clock Senora

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

you are aware of my faults,

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

pardon those sins that people do not see.

00:03:12--> 00:03:23

And it says Yara, I am utterly helpless. I cannot proceed without you, Yara, I have not glorified you,

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

as you deserve to be glorified.

00:03:27--> 00:03:34

This act of worship Dear brothers, dear sisters is something known as L who are L.

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

If you have experienced any of the meanings that I have just shared with you, and they were just examples, then you have experienced crucial.

00:03:46--> 00:04:02

If you have not experienced them, then it means that the other option applies to yourself. Your worship has become soulless and robotic mechanical acts that are dry and quite frankly, almost meaningless.

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

I'm sure we can translate it roughly although I believe that there is not one single English word that can capture the meanings of it. But it is something along the lines of being humbly submissive to Allah subhanahu ADAD.

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

humbly submissive to Allah.

00:04:27--> 00:04:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and perhaps this is the go to area for those who speak about Allahu Allah. Allah Jalla Juliana who said, addressing the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam primarily, he said, let me act needy Latina

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

duck Shah Kulu boo homolytic Lila, you want to let me know?

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

How has the time not come

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

for hearts to become humbly submissive, that the remembrance of Allah and to what he has

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

revealed from the truth

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

this is a gentle and polite and merciful reproaching from Allah to the Companions primarily and then us asking them has the time not come for kosher to come into your hands?

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

Now either Halal Allah, how do you feel after hearing this area?

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

How did you react when this area fell upon your heart?

00:05:26--> 00:05:36

If it did not move you and I much let me share with you how this area affected the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they had it.

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

As for

00:05:41--> 00:06:05

Abdullah Hibino Massoud, he said Monica Anabaena Islam Amina webinar and Anna turban Allah who has the hilarya de la or bow see me it was only four years from the day we became Muslims. Till this verse was revealed where Allah gently reproached us for not having the necessary Huzoor it was only four years

00:06:07--> 00:06:23

now ILA in Allah. And as for Abdullah, he nama when he would recite this area or hear it being recited where Allah asks has the time not come for your hearts to feel? Who sure to be humbly submissive and the remembrance of Allah?

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

Abdullah him normally he would cry.

00:06:27--> 00:06:35

And he would say belajar Bella era Yes, the time has come, oh my lord, the time the time has come, oh my lord.

00:06:38--> 00:06:50

You have the likes of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and who when he would recite this area or hear it being recited and once he heard it in a congregation like this, and with him were a few men from the tribe of Yemen.

00:06:53--> 00:07:37

They heard the idea being recited in Abu Bakr and began to cry and the people of Alabama with him they began to cry profusely and then Abu Bakr said his famous statement How can Hakuna Kabila and Duk soo al Kulu This is how we used to behave before our hearts became hard. Now seeing his friends crying in this way, and Abu Bakr is their Emir and Abu Bakr is their Eman and he has the softest of all hearts. He said, This is how we used to behave before our hearts became hot. Has the time not come for our hearts to experience her Sure. At the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:39--> 00:07:46

So what is kashua? We've loosely translated it as being humbly submissive to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:07:48--> 00:08:05

What is it from a linguistic perspective and a technical perspective going back to the language, very simply put my brothers and sisters, the scholars of language they say Allahu Allah and Rivaldo was the low was so cool, kazoo is what?

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

Something that is lovely.

00:08:11--> 00:08:17

And something that is humble, and something that is still

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

who can repeat those three.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

Who can repeat those three, what was the first

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

something that is low,

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

as opposed to something that is elevated, something that is low,

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

and something that is

00:08:36--> 00:08:37

humble.

00:08:38--> 00:08:56

And something that is still opposite to excessive movement, something that is still these are meanings that revolve around this word, who should think of two meanings to make it easier for you something that is humble.

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

And something that is quiet and still it doesn't move much. That is something that is harsh.

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

And let me show you how Allah subhanaw taala uses this word, who show in the book of Allah and the meaning will become even clearer in your mind.

00:09:15--> 00:09:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala who said what mean it and from his signs and natural herb Maharsha that you see the land with kashua Meaning what? Humble? And still

00:09:30--> 00:09:45

the either Angelina Jolie Halima but when rain falls upon this humbled land, what happens is that what about that land moves? It is stirred into movement and vegetation grows.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

So how did Allah Jalla Jalla Allahu describe it land that is still an humble and lowly because people trample upon it. He said, Ha she had crucial

00:10:03--> 00:10:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala he also said describing how people will behave on the Day of Judgment

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

while kosher it elsewhere to your rationality Fela test now Allah Hamza, that voices will be humbled, will be silent will be still on the Day of Judgment they will have who voices will have who sure on the Day of Judgment, therefore, you will not hear anything but whisperings.

00:10:33--> 00:10:43

So, how did Allah describe a state of or a voice that is not speaking loudly and has been humbled? As Harshad has has been crucial?

00:10:45--> 00:11:09

And Allah has gender Juliana who said describing how people will gaze on the Day of Judgment when they are resurrected, He said, Who Shan Abbas louder? Can you hear the same word? Who Sharon upside or whom Yeah, who do nominal edge death, they will come out of their graves in a state with their eyes downcast who shine lowly humbled, not looking all over the place.

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

And Allah subhanho wa Taala described his messengers as being what can you Lana crush Yeah, they had her Sure. Ah, so, with these four examples that you just heard, we have just discovered that her Sure, being humble,

00:11:28--> 00:11:34

and lowly. And still, that can come as a description description of land.

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

It can come as a description of what of gazes.

00:11:41--> 00:12:08

It can come as a description of speech or voices. And it can come as a description of what, as a description of human beings as having Sure. So long as these two meanings are found, or one or the other, at least, something that has been broken, it's humbled, it's lonely, it knows its place. And something that is what are of man something that is

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

still,

00:12:12--> 00:12:28

this is crucial, from a linguistic perspective, and I've given you examples of how the Quran uses it. Now, you will ask me what is crucial from the Islamic technical perspective Yanni? In other words, what is the horseshoe that is praiseworthy to Allah?

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

What is the kosher that Allah wants from me?

00:12:33--> 00:12:38

When Allah described human beings and praise them as having who Sure?

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

What does that mean?

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

I share with you one definition given by a man named Nora Jebel handily he said, Who is this?

00:12:48--> 00:12:48

Who are

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

in Kisara? Who lillahi?

00:12:53--> 00:12:59

Wa Hodo who was who? Who until t 30. He and Haley

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

Illman, whoever in a day, who sure is this, he said, the horseshoe of the heart is this. It is a state where the heart of a person breaks

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

and lowers itself

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

and become still

00:13:16--> 00:13:34

therefore, not looking at other than Allah subhanho wa taala. Did you get the definition? The whole show of the human heart, he says is a state where the heart breaks. That's the humble aspect that we spoke about, and lowly, when it when it breaks,

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

and it lowers itself.

00:13:38--> 00:13:47

And it becomes still, therefore no longer turning to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala that is for sure.

00:13:48--> 00:14:05

He then says that either harsher and harsher it Jawara hoo, ha, ha Yahushua he therefore when the heart experiences for sure, every other limb of your anatomy experiences who Shiva as a byproduct.

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

So which one causes the other?

00:14:10--> 00:14:36

Is it that the humble man who is praying like this? who tries to bring her shoe or outwardly to his heart? Or is her shoe or something that begins from the heart, it's a state that your heart is in, it is broken before Allah, it feels helpless, it feels in need of Him. And because of what you experience here, it translates here and here and everywhere else.

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

And if you want an image of this, just picture the image

00:14:43--> 00:14:57

of a person who has just been diagnosed with a life threatening disease. How does he or she behave as they speak to the doctor and they are told about life plannings and life expectancy, how do they behave?

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

Picture the image

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

of a man who has a debt that he cannot pay, and now he's set in front of the person whom he owes. And he's saying to him, I'm sorry, I'm not going to be able to repay you, how does he behave?

00:15:11--> 00:15:22

Or picture the scene of someone who's just been caught red handed, committing the crime of some sort, and now he's set or she sat in front of the authorities confessing their crime, and they're waiting for accountability. How do they behave?

00:15:23--> 00:15:30

Do they look all over the place? Are they fidgeting? Are they speaking loud? Or are they sat in a calm and serene state?

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

Is it not that their hearts have been humbled?

00:15:36--> 00:15:49

And they feel low, and they feel helpless. And that internal feeling reflects on their body language. So their gaze drums and their voices, their tones, they quieten down,

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

and their pride is, is ousted.

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

And their behavior is very much more managed.

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

This is the situation of a Muslim Ha, who has called sure of his Lord,

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

who understands the glory of Allah Jalla Jalla Lu, and appreciate his sovereignty and you feel your helplessness before him.

00:16:12--> 00:16:36

That internal feeling then reflects onto your limbs, and no longer do you see yourself walking like a gangster or strutting or trying to copy the billionaire Walker? No, no, no, your behavior is different. Because your heart is broken before it's no this is control. Something that is humbled, recognizing something far greater that is above it.

00:16:38--> 00:16:47

And something that has become genuinely quiet. And still all of those internal demons and monsters and selfish yearnings. They've been silenced. Now,

00:16:48--> 00:16:52

this is an idea of what her show is all about.

00:16:54--> 00:17:07

You may now ask me after having understood what kosher means is, you may ask, what is it that makes her show such a precious act of worship in the eyes of Allah? subhanaw taala?

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

Why is it such a price?

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

And I will share with you perhaps five points here take note of them.

00:17:15--> 00:17:31

The first is that for sure. Dear Brothers and Sisters is the very first act of worship according to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Companions, the very first value in our religion that will leave us as we go nearer to the Day of Judgment.

00:17:33--> 00:17:38

We as an ummah, we are a very unique group of people.

00:17:40--> 00:17:48

In the sense that our houses of worship are brimming brimming with people Alhamdulillah we don't like numbers.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

Our masajid are full,

00:17:52--> 00:18:01

whilst the other places of worship are being converted into carwashes. And clubs as we have one here in town,

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

and mosques even masajid. Our massages are on the rise and the people who visit them are also on the rise and just wait until the Ramadan arrives and you will see that what I'm speaking is true. We don't like numbers that makes us very unique. But we ask are we just as much packed with who show up as we are with numbers? Or are we just numb this?

00:18:25--> 00:18:38

From the 1000 people that you see praying taraweeh from the million who will be fasting in our community or others, how many of them are carrying out that act of worship with this inner sense of who show before the Lord?

00:18:41--> 00:18:45

And that is why how they February a man the companion of the Prophet sallallahu Zina

00:18:46--> 00:18:54

saw he was here in Abuja, Alayhi Salatu was Salam, the companion who was not given the secrets of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:18:55--> 00:19:06

what is her very first day and by the way, he was an expert when he came to the portents of the two sides of the Day of Judgment. He said our world will not if they don't, I mean equal.

00:19:07--> 00:19:11

The very first thing that you will lose from your religion

00:19:12--> 00:19:12

is

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

he romantically doing I mean Dean equals salah, and the very last thing that you will lose in your religion is what

00:19:24--> 00:19:52

is Salah. He said what Oba Musa Linda Rafi, and there may be a person who prays, but there is no good in him in the eyes of Allah. And then he concludes my singing while you will shake and that hula al Masjid Al Masjid Al GEMA Fela toffee him harsh, and there will soon come a time when you will enter the huge message that many people praying and not one of them will be praying in the state of Iowa.

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

Not one

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

so what makes her show so amazing? Such a

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

rare gift number one is that it's the very first thing to disappear from the ummah of Islam.

00:20:08--> 00:20:18

Number two, what makes this gift so special is that when who are mixes with our Ibadah that you do, that act of worship is amplified in the eyes of Allah.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

And this is how to invest in a smart way.

00:20:23--> 00:20:44

Beware of wasting your capital and your greatest capital is your worship. Add to it those ingredients needed to make your worship grow. He sure is an amazing promoter of growth to your acts of worship, and bearing in mind just how short your lifespan is in comparison to the people who live before you. You need every promoter of growth.

00:20:46--> 00:20:53

Let me ask you a question What is the name of the surah in the Quran? That equates to 1/3 of the book in terms of reward.

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

Which surah is

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

a little asshole who Allahu Ahad

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

one who recites it he can expect the reward of 1/3 of the book of Allah Jalla Jalla Allah.

00:21:08--> 00:21:23

What is interesting is that shareholders snappy multimedia, he said this about it. He said, despite the tremendous reward of reciting Surah to the class, there may be people who recite other chapters of the Quran that may be even shorter.

00:21:24--> 00:21:33

And Allah Jalla Jalla, who gives them a greater reward than reciting Surah to the class. He said, Why? Because they recited that verse or those verses in a state of Shiva.

00:21:35--> 00:21:43

And this is greater in the eyes of Allah than someone who recite Quran who Allahu Ahad, in a heedless and inattentive way.

00:21:44--> 00:22:20

Then he said, and there may be a person who says Subhana, Allah Alhamdulillah, La ilaha illa, Allah, Allahu Akbar, in a state of Osho know what I mean by that? When you really appreciate the glory of Allah, as you said, you say subhanallah and you mean it. It comes from the depths of your soul, and you feel a chill running through your veins, as you say, you know, in Lulu, you meant it. He said, Someone may say one of these remembrances and in the eyes of Allah, it is greater than reciting Kulu Allahu Ahad with respect to reward, what amplified the deed

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

towards the horseshoe of this individual. So when you are praying when you are fasting when you are sister tying your hijab, every morning before you leave your home, when you lower your gaze, beware of making it making it a robotic act a chore because it's a wasted opportunity. Plug into it the sense of kashua realize the other mother might the sovereignty of the Lord above you feel that your heart is broken at his doorstep. And watch how Allah will raise your acts of worship and multiply your deeds This is the second reason why kosher is such a prize.

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

It is a secret ingredient that promotes growth of good deeds.

00:23:04--> 00:23:11

Number three and who show your brothers and sisters is an act of worship that makes doing good deeds easy

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

so

00:23:14--> 00:23:54

how is it that two people may pray one is dragging his feet to his Salah Come on bro you gotta pray Come on, son. You gotta pray Come on, daughter. Time to break Come on. Husband. Come on. Why thank you pray, Okay, I'm coming. I'm coming. I'm coming. Are you nag? Why? Why has solid become so heavy? Because who is absent? It's as simple as that. And that is why Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who said he spelt it out to a so clearly speaking about salah we're in a holla Kabira it is so difficult Allah said, it is a burden prayer illa Allah koshyari Except upon the people of bushwa they don't find it big rabadan.

00:23:55--> 00:24:29

It is big. It is a bad thing. Except for the people who are who are they? Allah said, Allah you know of unknown unknown Moloch Warabi him they are those who believe that they are going to meet the Lord or another relay here are Jehovah unto him they shall return because of that issue that they have in their hearts. It carries them through the acts of worship and it becomes easy. Look, Ramadan is coming now we're just weeks away. Some people are already planning their Sahara and planning for their diets and planning for their ways and planning for their gym planning for their work in their thinking.

00:24:30--> 00:24:55

It's not a positive planning, it's a negative planning era. What about him is going to eat what a long day and then you have all these classic jokes. Oh my God, look in the UK it's always raining. But the moment Ramadan comes 50 degrees Subhanallah Halloween. Okay, we say these things but between the lines, perhaps there was a subtle complaint and a burden with the month. That is not the behavior of a person of hope.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

A person who possesses who sure he's carried through the acts of life

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

you some of our predecessors would require two people to help them stand up straight for Salah they're too weak they can't get off the ground. Look at you squatting and jumping and benching how much you bench. They can't get off the ground. Two people carry them until they stand up right? He says Allahu Akbar, and he recites for Jews of the Quran.

00:25:23--> 00:25:45

What made that Salah enjoyable despite the pain, it was for sure. One who feels lowly and humble, before Allah subhana Medina and syncing his helplessness and need for his Lord, this person is carried through because he knows these acts of worship is what will please him on the day of judgment.

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

So what makes who are so precious? Number three, what did we say it is?

00:25:52--> 00:25:58

What is is the doing of good deeds if you find you are lethargic towards coming to the masjid or fasting,

00:26:00--> 00:26:04

realize that who Shula is a work in progress.

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

Another one of the elements that makes her show such a gift and so worthy of our time this evening.

00:26:13--> 00:26:21

Who, for those who possess it, end up behaving with the best of luck, the best matters?

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

Really, this is a reality.

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

How is it that someone who has who sure all of a sudden finds that his or her manners are returned? Loved by Allah when loved by the angels and loved by the people? How come? It's very simple.

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

You see,

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

how did we describe

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

land? How did Allah describe land?

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

What mean AR T and nicotrol orba Harsha will ensure

00:26:54--> 00:27:02

the area we quoted in the beginning. Why would Allah subhanaw taala describe land as having her sure, because it is lowly.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

It is humble. Right? And it is still it's quiet.

00:27:09--> 00:27:32

You barely see it moving. But it is trampled upon. It doesn't possess any good for itself. If no one brings it rain, it will die. Should someone bring in rain it will live it is completely reliant upon third party intervention. Land is helpless. It's trampled upon people walk upon it. So Allah says it has for sure.

00:27:34--> 00:27:43

Have you ever seen a plot of land that can ascend into the sky and get into the clouds and squeeze the rain out of them for it to grow vegetation? The answer, of course is a obvious No.

00:27:44--> 00:28:00

It is a land that has for sure. Right. So it is humbled. It's helpless. And it's the same word that has been described, that describes the righteous believer, a man or a woman of Hoshido meaning he feels helpless.

00:28:01--> 00:28:07

He says to his Lord, My Lord, if you don't rain me with your mercy, I die.

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

If you remain rain me with your goodness, I live

00:28:13--> 00:28:23

because of that sense of helplessness and weakness and bankruptcy and desperate need before Allah. It produces the best of manners.

00:28:24--> 00:28:31

So this person, you see them behaving in a very amicable way. Because inside they're broke before they load.

00:28:33--> 00:28:49

They don't think too highly of themselves. They know how to take a joke. They don't take themselves too seriously. pride has been ousted. They have for sure. People love them. They're easy to be around. They're jovial, they're easygoing.

00:28:50--> 00:29:01

They are the quickest of people to offer an apology when they make a mistake, but they are the last people to to expect an apology when people do wrong to them.

00:29:03--> 00:29:12

They are the quickest of people to offer gratitude and thanks to those who do good to them, but they never expect people to say thank you to them. They have Shula.

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

When they talk about others, they're talking about their virtue, mashallah they're talking about their generosity, they're talking about their goodness, they only ever see people through a lens of hair and goodness and positivity. But when they talk about themselves, they talk about weakness. They talk about deficiency. They talk about how their email is major work in progress. They talk about their need for the Mercy of Allah and His pardoning and his veiling people of hoo ha, they don't think highly of themselves. And by our nature, we love people like that. And the angels love people like that. And above all, Allah subhanaw taala loves people who are like that.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

So, why is Huzhou are such a precious act of worship because it improves

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

The the manners of a Muslim in an amazing way.

00:30:04--> 00:30:18

Another reason why he sure is such a prized act of worship. It's because the people of who are the most transformed when they hear the Islamic reminder,

00:30:20--> 00:30:29

you've noticed how two individuals may hear the exact same content. Two who attend a Friday Sermon two who attend the lecture language.

00:30:30--> 00:31:07

Two who experienced the same car crash, to read the exact same book, yet La ilaha illa. Allah, they behave in two different ways. One shrugs his shoulders, and he continues as if somebody else was intended not him. And the other person finds his heartbreaking at the doorstep of worship, and he decides to make serious changes in his or her life. They go to their wardrobe wardrobe, they go to their their stash of tobacco, they change their business dealings therein, then why do they behave in such different ways? This individual had kosher, this individual did not possess it.

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

The people of Russia are the most transformed when it comes to hearing the Islamic reminder.

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

How did Allah describe the land we said earlier with Osho right? Because it is humble and still, but then what did Allah say, happens to the land when rain falls upon it? Do you remember it is that what about it begins to move and vegetation grows.

00:31:32--> 00:31:45

And similarly is a heart that has Shula. It is humble, and it is still but when the reign of revelation falls upon it, what happens? It moves with the remembrance of Allah and Eman begins to grow.

00:31:46--> 00:31:54

So those who possess her Sure, good news to you, you will be the most transformed to the care that you hear. And if you find yourself slow

00:31:56--> 00:32:17

in moving towards transformation and change. When hearing data's after data's, then realize that who you are perhaps from other things may be still a work in progress. They are the most transformed people when it comes to the Islamic reminder because their hearts are fertile, ready to receive the reminder. They have been humbled at the glory of Allah has

00:32:19--> 00:32:22

one more reason why who show up is such a gift.

00:32:25--> 00:32:36

And that is because it is one of the widest of doors and nearest of doors to the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you're looking for a shortcut,

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

if you're looking to save yourself so much effort, so much time

00:32:43--> 00:32:51

and find any secret of all ingredients that is pleasing to your Lord, I share with you one of them and that is for sure.

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

Imam in no time he has beautiful words.

00:32:56--> 00:33:00

Speaking about his experience with this topic of Bucha

00:33:02--> 00:33:09

he said the hell to Allah Allah him in Abu Dhabi to articoli ha. I try to worship Allah

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

using every act of worship that I know

00:33:15--> 00:33:36

from either hell to Allah him in bobbin Illa budget to allihies the hand for LM Adama convener. However every time I went to one of the doors of worship, I found that that door was congested with people. And there were so many people trying to get in so I couldn't get inside. Do you understand what he's saying? Is it clear

00:33:37--> 00:33:50

and he's saying I want to glorify Allah, I wanted to worship him. But every time I went to an act of worship, see salah, and see I'm fasting and Hajj sadaqa reciting Quran

00:33:52--> 00:34:19

enjoying good forbidding evil, every time I tried knocking on one of those doors of acts of worship, I found it congested with people. And so I couldn't enter Salah you will find everyone Alhamdulillah doing it and that's how it should be. But it's difficult to compete because there will always be someone ahead of you. He said charity again the same thing so many people doing it, their door is congested you it's difficult to compete, fasting and so on and so forth.

00:34:20--> 00:34:30

That's the essence of what he is saying. So what happened? He said had to iLab is only well if the car till I arrived at the door

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

of humbleness

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

and bankruptcy and need to Allah that door flagship.

00:34:39--> 00:34:55

Do you understand? I arrived at the door of needing Allah, that act of worship. What was his experience when he saw that door? He said for either who are caribou Durban alayhi wa sallam, I found that this door provides the shortest path to Allah.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

And it is the why this door What if

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

La moi was three he went to Amazon. And I found that there were no competitors here.

00:35:05--> 00:35:22

There was no congestion. No one is doing this from a who are in LA and Woba to me fear that he had the big word colonially. And all I needed to do was place my foot in the door, and Allah subhanaw taala took me by the hand and brought me into His Divine Presence.

00:35:25--> 00:35:32

It is one of the widest doors to Allah subhanaw taala because it is so rare, and so few who will achieve it.

00:35:33--> 00:35:40

You may ask me, What examples do we have people who lived by who? Sure. Let's add some color into this theory.

00:35:42--> 00:35:49

You have the greatest of the harsh shining, our Imam and our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:52--> 00:36:06

Abdullah he initially said a day to Elan Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Hawaii recently. I once came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he was in Santa

00:36:07--> 00:36:24

wali JioFi he as easily as easily middle Giuliani middle Buka and I found that as he was praying, His chest was making sounds like the sounds of a pot that was boiling because of his weeping as he recited the Quran, the Imam of the harsh hearing

00:36:27--> 00:37:01

and when he would be bowing to Allah subhanaw taala a little cool he would say, memorize this Allahu Malacca slept. Allahu Malacca rakaat Oh Allah to you I have bound Welbeck meant and he knew I believe we're like a slumped unto you. I surrender. Then he said, Harsha. I like Asana. I was sorry. One more key was me wasabi. He said my eyes oh Allah and my ears and my brain and my bones and my nerves are all in a state of who sure to you Oh ALLAH.

00:37:03--> 00:37:20

My eyes have been humbled they only see your pleasure. My ears they only see what please you. My brain only thinks about you my nerves, my bones. Every atom of his body he is saying is in a state of who you are to Allah subhanaw taala Allahu Akbar.

00:37:23--> 00:37:43

As for our mother I Isha because the Department of Russia is certainly not restricted to the men. Our mother I Isha as Al Qasim, son of Muhammad said of our bucket so al Qasim is her nephew. He said every morning before I go to the marketplace, I would visit my aunt Isha Radi Allahu Anhu to give her her setup.

00:37:44--> 00:38:13

On on one particular morning, I found her praying her her her her for noon Salah and she was reciting the IOER Allah said, Thurman Allahu Allah, you know, are kinda either some whom, Allah who is kind to us, and He protected us from the punishment of hell. That's what the people of Paradise will say. So she is reciting this idea and she is crying and making dua and repeating it and crying and making, he said, So I waited at the door until like, I got bored.

00:38:15--> 00:38:37

So I went to the market and I thought, let me finish what I need to do on off camera, see her in the evening. So imagine you're making your way to town and you're parked up at St Davids and you you've had your Costco, your Starbucks and then you you go to your Debenhams and you've done your shopping and you're driving back out and you come back to the home of our mother I Isha. And guess what? She is still standing in her place reciting the same eye and weeping and making no

00:38:39--> 00:38:43

that is a luminous example of who should be for Elijah. And

00:38:45--> 00:39:14

as for Abdullah, he sort of honorable superb it'll be Allahu Anhu another noble companion, he would recite from Surah to mata 15 Till he would get to the IOER Allah Almighty said, Allah Javon. You can whom are both who do they not think that they're going to be resurrected laomi NaVi for a mighty day. Yo, Maya Kuhlmann Surah benign, I mean, on the day when people will stand to the Lord of the worlds

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

and he wept so much that he collapsed

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

and he was unable to continue their citation. They were people of Oceania,

00:39:24--> 00:39:46

Abdullah he ignores Zubaydah do not want another companion of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. He would stand in Salah next to the cab, or behind the cab during the siege of Alhaji of the use of coffee to Mecca. And Abdullah he was the bed was the man intended

00:39:47--> 00:39:53

and unhedged would be launching his catapult his boulders into the holy sanctuary, God forbid.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

And some of those boulders would pass right in front of Abdullah firing past him and

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

In rushing past his clothes, and ye would not move from his place as if not realizing that there was a war.

00:40:07--> 00:40:20

And he would be in a state of bearing and prostration and birds would fall upon his back thinking that he was a tree trunk, because he was so still in crucial war, and remaining in that position for so long.

00:40:22--> 00:40:27

This is Abdullah he Zubayr. And once when he was at home and he was praying,

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

a Python or a snake of some sort fell on his son, Hashem.

00:40:33--> 00:40:43

His family, they said, hey, I'll hire the snake, the snake, and he remained in Salah as if ignoring them. When they reached his son and they killed the snake.

00:40:44--> 00:40:51

And Abdullah had finished himself, his salah, they said, didn't you see what happened? He said, What happened? They said this happened. He said, Well, I did not realize

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

I didn't realize any of it.

00:40:56--> 00:41:02

asked for a Muslim Immanuel Yasar, another one of our predecessors, not a companion.

00:41:03--> 00:41:11

He was once praying in his home and a fire broke out. They said to him a fire a fire has broken out he remained in his sunnah

00:41:12--> 00:41:15

until until they put out the fire.

00:41:16--> 00:41:30

And then they said to him, did you not realize that there was a fire in your home? Melody and haka? Annina what distracted you from the fire he said, I'll have Nyan Hannah lucra it was the other fire that distracted me from it. Now the fire of hell.

00:41:32--> 00:41:35

Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah was invited to a garden

00:41:36--> 00:41:44

a day out with his friends. The time for Salah to vote came and he was pushed to lead them. In Salah when they finished their prayer.

00:41:46--> 00:42:22

He was doing his sunnah his extra Salah when he finished. He turned to his friends and he raised his garment and he showed them his back. He said, Do you see anything? And subhanAllah the narration said there were 16 or 17 stings by a hairnet that had somehow entered into his clothes and stung him. His back was bruised, it was bleeding, and it was very much swelling. Do you see anything? They said? Yes, you've been stung by a hornet 16 or 17 times? Why didn't you leave your Salah he said come to fie. Tara, I think I'll come to faith era it so what I think if

00:42:23--> 00:42:27

I was reciting a sutra from the Quran, I really didn't want to interrupt it.

00:42:28--> 00:42:39

Other members from our predecessors who would be stung by Hornets on their noses during the Salah and blood would be falling off their faces and they wouldn't move. So strange. Now, you know, Allah Jacoba had Rami,

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

who had a shawl stolen from his shoulder when he was in Salah

00:42:46--> 00:42:54

Al Hamdulillah the shoulder was retrieved and placed back onto his shoulder as he was in Salah and he didn't realize the theft or the return of the shot.

00:42:58--> 00:43:08

And Muslim ignore Yasar would say to his family that when I'm in Salah, speak as you wish for less to be sent me a hadith, I will not be able to hear what you're saying.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

When I enter a Salah speak as you wish, because I will not be able to hear

00:43:16--> 00:43:17

what you're saying.

00:43:19--> 00:43:29

These are some of the luminous examples of Sure. And there are others sabot Ilona Annie, who went to the doctor because his eyes were hurting him.

00:43:30--> 00:43:33

And the doctor knew exactly what his problem was.

00:43:34--> 00:43:46

He said to him implement Lee has lettin guarantee me that you do one thing. And I will guarantee that your eyesight returns to you. He said, What's that? He said, Let's have key. Please stop crying.

00:43:47--> 00:44:11

You have to control your weeping and your eyes will be restored. He said what are you hiding behind the letter P? He said What good is there in an eye that does not weep? There's just to round off. We covered a brief introduction into the topical for sure. We spoke about how it is such an underrated act of worship, a very rare act of worship, how many people will meet Allah subhanaw taala not having tasted it.

00:44:12--> 00:44:34

We then spoke about some definitions and linguistic definition, a technical definition. We spoke about how the Quran uses the word for sure. We've discovered that it can be used to describe land, voices, gazes, bodily movements at large. And most importantly, it is a description of human hearts as well.

00:44:36--> 00:44:46

And then we gave around six reasons that make the topic of Osho very much worthy of our time and our pursuit. Now we're doing

00:44:48--> 00:45:00

and now we really want to just round off by speaking about a way forward to how this treasure of an act of worship can be worked towards who you are. And there isn't really a week that passes by

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

I where someone will ask, How do I improve my house? Sure. And as I have established already with you, dear brothers and sisters khushu is not an act of worship limited to,

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

to art.

00:45:14--> 00:45:33

It's not limited to Salah it's not limited to Salah who sure is something that affects the believer before Salah during it and after it till the day he meets Allah subhanaw taala This is the ideal situation, and it is a work in progress, but manage expectations. This is what is expected.

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

How do we work towards this treasure of an act of worship called crucial? I shared with you a few points The first and most important of them

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

and nothing really is ahead of this

00:45:50--> 00:45:53

is to recognize the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada

00:45:55--> 00:46:00

Imagine yourself sat with an individual, not knowing who this person was.

00:46:02--> 00:46:45

And everything is normal until someone whispers into your right ear saying to you Do you know who this is, you are sat in front of Prime Minister such and such President such and such King have such and such land. And all of a sudden, your voice changes. It's palpitations, it's perspiration, and all of a sudden, you're no longer fidgeting with your beard, your phone has gone on flight mode, all of a sudden your lunch break is not that important. In fact, you've forgotten about it. You weren't you willing to do extra hours, you're willing to cancel appointments, what's changed, nothing has changed. It's the same individual wearing the same clothes, nothing has changed. The only thing

00:46:45--> 00:46:50

however that has changed is your knowledge of who that person is.

00:46:51--> 00:46:56

And as a result of that, everything about you changed and you have become a person of Osho.

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

What Illa Hill method

00:47:00--> 00:47:02

Unto Allah belongs the greatest analogy.

00:47:03--> 00:47:40

A person who comes to grips who comes to realize who Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah who is through his names and his attributes, will no longer be cold and passive towards his Lord, who show will blossom while abroad it will appear by force. And it is as the statistician say, a perfect positive correlation which means when one variable increases, the other will increase with it. The more a person's knowledge of Allah Jalla Jalla who grows, the greater your whole show of him will grow and the opposite is just as true.

00:47:41--> 00:48:07

And that is why our NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and in the share icon Lillahi wa sallam can be He, I am the one who knows Allah the most from all of you. And I fear him the most as well. The link, I know him the most. And I fear him the most. And that is why I leave the house at Blue ally even though the authority probably Allahu anhu, nicknamed Zainul IBD

00:48:09--> 00:48:34

when he would stand, to carry out His will do in preparation for Salah, his face would turn pale, he would lose color. So they would say to him, What is this that affects you? Every time you do will do and he would say to them at a drone there been a man read one active? Don't you know before whom I'm about to stand in sauna?

00:48:35--> 00:48:54

Aren't you aware of who it is that I'm about to bow and prostrate to? What was it that caused this type of behavior, it is a knowledge of Allah, gender Generico. So start a study of Allah's names and his attributes and this has become a common feature of every one of our sessions.

00:48:56--> 00:49:03

Number two, after seeing get to know your Creator, number do get to know yourself.

00:49:04--> 00:49:14

come to grips with your deficiencies. This will immediately by the permission of Allah. put us on the pathway to who you are,

00:49:15--> 00:49:19

to know who you are. Because when you recognize the

00:49:20--> 00:49:25

the Majesty of Allah, you automatically recognize the lowly state of man.

00:49:26--> 00:49:34

When you recognize the wealth of Allah, you instantly recognized as well what the poverty of men

00:49:35--> 00:49:46

when you recognize the power of Allah, gender Janerio instantly and automatically and as a byproduct, you realize the weakness and frailty and uselessness of men

00:49:47--> 00:50:00

get to know him as gender Julian who but then get to know yourself and realize we are drenched with deficiencies from head to toe. And this is a rule every aspect of it

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

Islam is easy if you managed to keep your ego at bay.

00:50:03--> 00:50:25

This is just a fact you'd benefit. Every part of the religion is manageable and attainable and easy. Who's your class to work with? In other person, alcove Raja I have all of these actions of the heart are attainable. If you acknowledge that there is an ego problem, and then you keep that ego at bay.

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

Get to know your deficiency.

00:50:29--> 00:50:35

When you speak about people speak about them in a positive way. When you speak about yourself acknowledge your weaknesses.

00:50:37--> 00:50:55

This is the essence of who you are. What is it that is preventing you from realizing the reality of your weakness and the reality of mine? What is it? What is it that stands between you and acknowledging that I am frail? And I am helpless? What is it?

00:50:56--> 00:51:04

Mother Rakiura beacon Karim. Allah asks, oh son of a man, what is it that has deluded you with respect to your Lord? What is it?

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

I mean, is it your knowledge

00:51:09--> 00:51:20

that is preventing you from realize how helpless we are? Is it your knowledge that Allah has blessed you with? Well, have you forgotten that there came a time in your life when you did not know you're still a child?

00:51:22--> 00:51:32

And you're hanging on Mina de la mia Gu Che Guevara. Allah says, Has there not come a time in history, when man was nothing to be made mention of?

00:51:33--> 00:51:42

And then have you forgotten that there will come a time when you will not know if you live long enough and you reach the age of senility.

00:51:43--> 00:51:48

So my Euro do Isla Rosalina homovanillic Kala Alam embody Amish,

00:51:49--> 00:51:55

then we will return them to an age of seniority such that they will forget everything that they used to know Allah says.

00:51:57--> 00:52:01

And then on top of all of that, have you not realized that no matter how much you know,

00:52:02--> 00:52:10

there will always be far more that you don't know when will the Tumino hang me in Cali? In the knowledge that you have been given? Allah says,

00:52:11--> 00:52:16

knowledge is causing you to forget your weaknesses? To look down upon people.

00:52:17--> 00:52:24

And you're preventing yourself from attaining kosher because of it? Is it your knowledge? Is it maybe your authority,

00:52:25--> 00:52:32

your standing in the community, your followers online? Your influence, as a committee member?

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

Is that what is causing you to forget your deficiencies?

00:52:38--> 00:52:42

Well, I asked you if you were dying of thirst, for example?

00:52:44--> 00:53:00

Would you not gather all of those positions that you have on all of your social media, all of your platforms? Would you not throw them away? If it meant that you could have a cup of water to save your life and extended by an hour? You would? So is that something to become proud about?

00:53:02--> 00:53:04

And to prevent Hoshido from coming into your life because of it?

00:53:06--> 00:53:14

Don't allow that to be a barrier either? What is it your knowledge? Is it your authority or influence? Is it maybe your money?

00:53:16--> 00:53:21

Well, if it's your money in your business that's thriving that's distracting you and preventing you from seeing your deficiency.

00:53:22--> 00:53:34

The La Ilaha illa Allah realize that the some of the vilest of human beings on earth today have far more money than you will ever accumulate.

00:53:36--> 00:53:44

And what is the outcome of money? One of two outcomes, either it is a voluntary distribution through sadaqa charity that you give

00:53:45--> 00:54:01

or either it is a forceful distribution through death. How can money then be a criteria of greatness and a cover of a person's deficiency? Or to prevent you from attaining crucial? What is money? And what is your business? Is that what is preventing you from reaching crucial?

00:54:03--> 00:54:04

Or maybe it's your strength?

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

Maybe it's how much you can bench in the gym?

00:54:09--> 00:54:18

Maybe it's your physique that's preventing you from reaching the stage of question what you're so distracted by what the mirror describes.

00:54:19--> 00:54:42

That ILA in Allah will remember, no matter how strong you become, my dear brother, you'll never be able to bench as much as a monkey or an ape or, or a bull. You can't. If they were put in that position, they are far stronger than any one of us will ever be. So how can strength be a criteria that is found in greater quantities in unintelligent creatures?

00:54:44--> 00:54:48

Maybe it's your your beauty or maybe it's your spellbinding appearance.

00:54:50--> 00:55:00

Maybe it's your flawless skin, your upright persona. Maybe that's what's preventing you from realizing your deficiency and distracting you from who you are, and unable to humble yourself.

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

because you're so obsessed with the next photo, and the next post and the next set of likes and comments. Your appearance is what is distracting you from who you are.

00:55:10--> 00:55:12

And you forgotten how you looked when you were born.

00:55:14--> 00:55:21

When the nurses needed to use wet wipes to wipe your face and mind, just so that we don't horrify our mothers when they meet us for the first time.

00:55:23--> 00:55:25

Or how you look every morning.

00:55:27--> 00:55:38

Before you comb your hair before you wipe your eyes before you goggle before you comb your hair before you put on your makeup. Before you put on your filter. How do you look?

00:55:39--> 00:55:42

Or how you will look when you pass away.

00:55:43--> 00:55:50

Ask those who deal with the deceased as the coroner's what happens to people when they die, they will say to you

00:55:51--> 00:55:54

that within the first 24 to 72 hours

00:55:56--> 00:56:05

your internal organs begin to decompose and there is now an unbearable smell of Iraq emanating from this individual this carcass

00:56:06--> 00:56:07

and then

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

three to five days later.

00:56:12--> 00:56:15

your abdomen begins to bloat begin to inflate

00:56:17--> 00:56:20

and then blood containing foam starts leaking from the mouth and nose.

00:56:22--> 00:56:40

And then eight to 10 days later your caucus begins to change color now from your natural skin color to green. And then you turn red. Because the blood within you is now decomposing and your abdomen is accumulating more gas it is at this point that your abdomen will tear apart.

00:56:42--> 00:56:45

Then a few weeks after this, your nails and your teeth begin to fall out.

00:56:46--> 00:56:51

And then just one month after this process your body begins to liquefy.

00:56:52--> 00:56:56

This is an individual who will allow his appearance to distract him from crucial

00:56:58--> 00:57:00

to busy himself with his mirror reflection.

00:57:01--> 00:57:25

And that is why our predecessors who realized this reality about themselves that's just the physical weakness and then we talk about the Islamic deficiency don't get me started on that. Our me beginning complaining of Salah complaining of wudu and lack of Salah in Gemma deficiency with the hijab. The list is endless. I don't want to go on so as to not demoralize us. We are drenched in the deficiency.

00:57:26--> 00:57:28

Our predecessors were like that

00:57:29--> 00:57:38

they realize and acknowledge their weaknesses so Allah bless them with who sure Imam Muhammad as Yeah, I have no matter in his friend who said that his study made.

00:57:39--> 00:57:41

He said we were in Baghdad in Iraq.

00:57:43--> 00:57:57

And he went to the marketplace ie man Muhammad, the great Imam. And he bought a he bought some wood. And he was carrying it on his on his back, walking through the marketplace. And this was at the peak of his fame.

00:57:58--> 00:58:38

And everyone recognized a great email I blocked in email, even though 100 And they left their stores and they left their shops and they went to the email and they wanted to give him Salaam and they want the baraka of being near this great scholar of their religion and they said to me Lanka had let me carry your word for you. Everyone wanted to serve him and his friend you have no mind he said the email was moving his hand as if to say no, please don't do this. I I don't need this. And his face went red as if you pop the pomegranate and he was shy he didn't like this. Then he began to weep. And he said national calmness again we are a poor people. We are a poor people. What are you doing

00:58:38--> 00:58:47

this? That he said Lola center Allah He Elena left Baba, if it wasn't for Allah veiling our faults, we would have been exposed utterly expose

00:58:48--> 00:58:53

people who recognized there was before Allah, so he raised them.

00:58:54--> 00:59:04

And when a man said to Mr. Muhammad Rahim, Allah Jazak Allah who I need Islamic hyperalgesia May Allah reward you for everything you have done for Islam or EMA.

00:59:05--> 00:59:09

What did he say? He said, belges Allah who will Islam or honey?

00:59:10--> 00:59:23

And Elena? He said, No, no. What you should have said is May Allah reward Islam for what it has done for me. After all, what am I and who am I who said what am I and who am I

00:59:26--> 00:59:28

so the one of the greatest ways of

00:59:29--> 00:59:41

fostering who I know heart is recognizing the might of Allah Jalla janeiro through a structured study and a recitation of the Quran number two through coming to grips with your deficiencies, remembering them every day.

00:59:44--> 00:59:45

Number three.

00:59:46--> 00:59:54

Another key ingredient needed for those who are looking for for sure is to pray each sunnah, as if it will be your last.

00:59:55--> 01:00:00

This is a will see advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for those who feel

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

know that their Salah is becoming a little bit

01:00:04--> 01:00:05

chore like

01:00:06--> 01:00:14

a daily meeting the rates in his field also new authority of Ns that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or the quarterly mount a few fanatic.

01:00:15--> 01:00:18

Remember death during your Salah

01:00:19--> 01:00:48

for in our radula either that Carol notifii salata here, hurry up and you'll see no slide out there who because a person who remembers death during his prayer will become a person who perfects his prayer. We're in our Rajala either doctoral note, if you swallow it, he will Coonrod you will either Salah blow your annual salary or your aha. And be a person he said, Be a person who when he prays, he truly believes that he will not pray a prayer.

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

And this has happened in our past in our history with people who knew that it would be their final Salah before they meet their Lord telling me about the nature of that salah and the whole show that will envelop them.

01:01:03--> 01:01:14

And that is why Hatem will Assam when they asked him tell us about how you pray with kosher. How do you pray with this type of dedication and stillness and humility before Allah? What do you do? He said, it's very easy.

01:01:15--> 01:01:28

When I come to pray, I place the camera in front of my eyes. And I place paradise to my right. And I imagine the Hellfire to my left.

01:01:29--> 01:01:47

And I imagine the Spirit the bridge beneath me and I envisage the Angel of Death behind me and I truly believe that it will be my final Salah what type of Salah will this be it will be a Salah for Shiva that's number three, to pray a Salah, believing that it will be your final

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

number four

01:01:52--> 01:01:53

to avoid

01:01:55--> 01:01:56

the detractors of Horseshoe Ah.

01:01:58--> 01:02:06

So the same way there are things that add to a person's horseshoe there are things that detract from it. For example, sins

01:02:08--> 01:02:12

Where is her show going to find place in the heart of a habitual sin

01:02:13--> 01:02:41

Mirjana Hola, Julio Rajamouli. Mele, Kobe UniFi JioFi Allah said I have not placed two hearts in the chest of any man. It's the hunt. So if the RAM to use computer terms of that heart of that heart is full and busy, there is no space for anything else. And processing speeds will be slow. So you know that there are things that need to be offloaded make space, make room if you truly want Kishore, make room for it.

01:02:43--> 01:02:57

offload some of those sins or float, what you're inhaling of float the Haram transaction, offload what you're observing, when no one is observing you or so you thought, offload the songs and the music, offload that

01:02:58--> 01:03:01

and allow space for Kosha to come into your heart.

01:03:03--> 01:03:46

So that's a detractor of her show. excessive movement, excessive fidgeting, especially in Salah that detracts from kosher. That's not the behavior of someone who is harsher. Remember the two components humility, humble and still the one who's moving and playing with his beard and itching his eyebrow and playing with his skin and thinking is that a white hat? Or is that just a crusty bit on my on my face? That's not a person who isn't for sure. minimize it. And that is why so he didn't almost a year when he saw a man who was twirling his beard in Salah. You've seen this before right twirling his beard in Salah? What'd it say he'd say? He said lo ha SHA curl boo hoo, Lucha SHA Jawara who he

01:03:46--> 01:03:52

said if the heart of this man had experienced who show his limbs would have followed her show as well.

01:03:53--> 01:03:55

And he's fidgeting because his heart is fidgeting.

01:03:57--> 01:04:12

He's moving because his heart is not unstable. That's to him that stillness that calmness, that serenity that humility of the Harsha right one of our friends he said Walla he said I saw in a horrible murky

01:04:13--> 01:04:19

no know an uncle, who was buying and selling he was trading his car during his Salah

01:04:20--> 01:04:27

Jaime, he said Allahu Akbar. And someone says to him Uncle, how much you selling this bundle of seawater, he said

01:04:28--> 01:04:28

Turia

01:04:29--> 01:04:32

and I said to him, come on. Yeah, she had one one real he said.

01:04:34--> 01:04:37

And he take the to the other go, buying and selling and Salah.

01:04:39--> 01:04:59

So, here it this is another detractor of Santa. silence those electronic hallucinations. Really look at the social media platforms that you don't need. I didn't stall them. Because the more you expose yourself to through the that highlight reel, the more you will see during your salon

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

What you don't need to see, uninstall it, remove it from your life. It's the one heart that you possess.

01:05:08--> 01:05:25

There's no point putting your phone on the ground thinking that you've done your Lord a favor, if it's facing up. And you're there praying and then you see the idea of the one who's calling you. And you thinking what makes him what makes her call at this time of the day.

01:05:26--> 01:05:46

Right? Minimal eternal the other side. Again, if you want to put your phone in your pocket, there's no point putting it on vibration. silence it at least because if it's vibrating, what are you thinking inside out? You're thinking wonder who that is Uncle Jamal. Is that Derek from work? Is that sure my my perhaps, who's calling me

01:05:48--> 01:05:49

Do yourself a favor

01:05:50--> 01:06:04

and silence these electronic hallucinations and uninstall the ones that you don't need free up some space. So that's number one. That's number number four, to avoid what detracts from her show.

01:06:06--> 01:06:07

Number five.

01:06:09--> 01:06:16

Maybe we will conclude with this because the topic is long. And that is too big Allah Jalla Jalla yoo hoo for it.

01:06:17--> 01:06:58

And that is why email Muslim the rates on your authority of Zeytinburnu are upon that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say in his dua look, memorize this Allah who made me all the weaker men and men lie in fact, Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge that will not benefit me. While I will be in Leia Shah and I seek refuge in You from a heart that will not experience who Shiva or mean Neff similar attacks about and I seek refuge in You from a soul that is never satisfied while being doubted. Now yesterday I Buddha and I seek refuge in You from a dua that is not that memorize that big Allah agenda that oh for sure when we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to

01:06:58--> 01:07:05

envelop us with His mercy and to bless us with who who are SallAllahu ala Nabina Muhammad well, how do you know you're on the line?
