Each of our eyes weighs less than 30 grams. But they are dedicated to a function that around half of our brain is dedicated to. And they see that our eyes contain 200 million working parts and can process 36,000 pieces of information every hour.

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

Our eyes in fact are responsible for around 80% of the information we grasp from the environment around us.

00:00:32--> 00:01:17

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was a happy woman who Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that Allah said, If I deprive my slave of his two beloved things, meaning his eyes and he remains patient, then I will give him paradise in compensation for them. And Allah says, Allah Who Raja crewmember Tonio, Matthew Kamala Tala Munna che Jalla como sama our Surah Al e that Allah Allah conditio karoun, Allah brought you out of your mother's womb knowing nothing at all. And he gave you hearing sight and hearts so that perhaps you would show thanks. Now showing thanks could never repay the gift of vision. Imagine

00:01:17--> 00:01:35

them intently committing our eyes to precisely what the giver asked that they be protected from. Allah says, say to the believers, that they should lower their eyes and guard their private parts that is pure for them. Allah is aware of what they do.

00:01:36--> 00:02:26

Our eyes are an immediate entry point into our hearts hugely influencing our thoughts, emotions and inner well being shameful Islam. Even the Tamia is reported to have said, vision is one of the ways in which the heart is corrupted. And our predecessors our cell refused to say vision is an arrow of poison straight into the heart. The glands the Haram glands only needs to be trivialized for the person to move on to the next step of haram. Until once big one begins to ponder, to wish and then to aim. His mind becomes crowded, whilst his hearts become stretched and drunk with a desire that he seeks. And the effect of getting into the habit of gazing at every lust is as a liberal idea

00:02:26--> 00:03:16

outlines it splits the hearts apart and it takes it away from Allah. Nothing is worse for this than this for a slave because it alienates the slave from Allah subhanho wa Taala a lack of organized thinking, aimlessness a constant and irritating sense of guilt and regret. If you don't pay him he continues, and if the AI is corrupted, the heart is also corrupted, and eventually becomes like a dustbin, full of filth and trash, and it will become a heart that will not accommodate Allah's love his closeness or happiness. Amazingly, Allah has placed more than 100 million light sensitive cells in our eyes. What is interesting is that lowering the gaze is essentially shading the eyes from the

00:03:16--> 00:04:05

physically luminous lusts for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala or preventing that light from entering our eyes. But by getting into that habit of lowering your gaze from what is haram, a different type of light finds its way into the heart. And it is no coincidence according to him, that the verse of lowering the gaze occurs in which Surah In Surah, and nor the chapter of light, because in return for lowering the gaze, a movement is given a luminous heart, a basura Allah's light put into the heart of the believer, with which he sees the truth from falsehood, or a type of intuition, with which he or she sees the deeper reality of matters, he becomes or she becomes less

00:04:05--> 00:04:50

naive, less susceptible to falling into mistakes, and more aware of trials deception and opportunities before they become clear to others. Just four verses after the instruction to lower the gaze, we read Allah Who similarity will Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The metaphor of his light, meaning in the heart of the believer is that of a lantern in which is a lamp. The lamp is inside the glass, the glass like a brilliant star lit from a blessing tree, nor an island or a light upon a light. May Allah subhana wa Taala allow us to get into the habit of lowering our gaze for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala may allow us to show thanks for this

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

enormous blessing that he has given us by utilizing it for what pleases Allah and protecting it from what displeases ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala
