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?
What is the Koshiro that Allah wants from me?
When Allah described human beings and praise them as having who Sure.
What does that mean?
I share with you one definition given by a man named Nora Jebel Hanbali. He said, close your eyes this
in Kisara, who Lillahi
wa holdo, who was so cool, no who are guilty 30 He and Haley
Illman, whoever in a day, who sure is this, he said, the whole show of the heart is this. It is a state where the heart of a person breaks
and lowers itself
and become still
therefore, not looking at other than Allah subhanho wa Taala did you get the definition? The horseshoe of the human heart, he says is a state where the heartbreaks that's the humble aspect that we spoke about, and lowly, when it when it breaks,
and it lowers itself.
And it becomes still, therefore no longer turning to other than Allah subhanho wa taala. That is for sure.
He then says that either Hush.
Hush it in January, who has he therefore when the heart experiences for sure, every other limb of your anatomy experiences kashua as a byproduct.
So which one causes the other?
Is it that the humble man who is praying like this, who tries to bring her shoe or outwardly to his heart, or his 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.
And if you want an image of this, just picture the image
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?
Picture the image 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?
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?
Do they look all over the place? Are they fidgeting? Are they speaking loud? Or are they sat in a calm and serene state?
Is it not that their hearts have been humbled?
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,
and their pride is is ousted.
And their behavior is very much more managed.
This is the situation of a Muslim ha who has who sure of his Lord,
who understands the glory of Allah Jalla Jalla Lu, and appreciate his sovereignty and you feel your helplessness before him.
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
something that is humbled, recognizing something far greater that is above it.
And something that has become genuinely quiet. And still all of those internal demons and monsters and selfish yearnings. They've been silenced now.
This is an idea of what her show is all about.
