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

Dear beloved brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

And now last, whatever we spoke about the enemy

00:02:15--> 00:02:25

of the children of Adam, we spoke about our sworn arch enemy as shaytaan regime, Lana Hala

00:02:26--> 00:02:41

and we talked about the tricks and the methods of shaitan and how to protect ourselves, these Nila from the evil of shaitan.

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

But today inshallah we will touch on the second enemy,

00:02:49--> 00:02:57

the second enemy against ourselves is actually something that lurks within

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

it is something that we have inside.

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

And that is a very dangerous enemy.

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

And that enemy is and pneus

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

our own self.

00:03:13--> 00:03:17

Now how can our own self be our own enemy?

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

And how

00:03:21--> 00:03:30

can we differentiate between what a shaitan is trying to do to us? And what our own selves

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

are doing

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

against ourselves

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask refuge again shaitan

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

from ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and that is the

00:03:50--> 00:04:20

the one that we know the most are hoobler his semi arid elimina shaytani R Rajim but also Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask refuge against our own selves or against the evil that lurks within our own selves. And he would say what now do bIllahi min shuru Areum fusina will say at Emelina We ask Allah, refuge and protection from the evil of ourselves

00:04:22--> 00:04:27

and from the worst or the sins of our deeds.

00:04:28--> 00:04:44

And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us that a shaytaan us Swiss and was worse than her nurse, a shaitan whispers and puts ideas and thoughts and desires within our own selves.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

But Allah says Subhanallah Anna, we're not allowed to work with which will be enough so we also know that the next what the knifes whispers inside the human being

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

So just like a shaytaan has the act of worse wasa. Allah tells us in the Quran that our own nurse can do us worse as well. It can whisper it can inspire us for evil deeds.

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

What is this nurse?

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

Your Honor man said that not all the neffs are evil

00:05:26--> 00:05:41

is actually enough something that we can tame. We can train and we can elevate from the lowest of the low, the the highest. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:05:42--> 00:05:51

look at Halak dal in Santa Fe OS and it's going through Murad now who has philosophy lien, Allah created us in the best form.

00:05:53--> 00:06:06

Our knifes is created with fitrah with the innate nature of Tawheed was the innate nature of obedience to Allah was the innate nature of hating sins and hating smartsleep.

00:06:07--> 00:06:39

But then, through Mara that now who has philosophical in ourselves, our knifes can take us to the lowest of the low, it can take us to the to a place where it is very comfortable with the sin and Marcia Tila and it whispers within for the person to continue or to try to be on the path of shaitan on the path of sin and masliah or disobedience.

00:06:40--> 00:06:47

So, the old man said that there are ranks and there are grades and there are phases of the knifes

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

and if we start from

00:06:54--> 00:07:04

the lowest of these stations, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah mentioned and nothing no Quran that is called a Nashville Amara

00:07:06--> 00:07:24

and nothing Amara well now we have seen in unnecessarily a marathon Bisou as Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Yousef on what the wife of the disease was saying that I will not exonerate myself. Indeed the nurses Amara

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

and that is the commanding

00:07:29--> 00:07:37

pneus the Napster commands evil. The Napster is always calling from within,

00:07:38--> 00:07:42

to disobey Allah to follow our own desires.

00:07:43--> 00:07:51

It is the knifes that wants to reject the Divinity of Allah subhanho wa Taala and place itself

00:07:52--> 00:07:59

as the one to be obeyed and the one to be followed its desires and it's Caprice.

00:08:01--> 00:08:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala says a thorough hm and he tell her that Illa who have entered Hakuna alayhi wa Akela Have you seen Do you see the one who took from their own desires their own Caprice their own selves? Isla

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

de ne deity that is worshipped daily that is followed

00:08:24--> 00:08:43

and that is a natural amount of brothers and sisters. It is enough that is always calling for us to follow what we want what we like whether it's haram or halal, but just to get it to do what we what the knifes desires.

00:08:45--> 00:09:39

And earlier Matt said if this nurse can do whispering and uninspired these evil acts and also shaytaan does the same thing. How can we tell whether it was it is our knifes that is whispering or shaitan that is doing it. And we need to fight both. We need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala refuge from both and we need to fight against both. But fighting against knifes is different from fighting against shaytaan. Because fighting against a pot is to trying to avoid the footsteps of shaitan all the things that we spoke about in the last clip but not to follow in the path of shaytaan and to ask refuge from the evil of shaitan. But the neffs We fight our nerves by making it better by elevating

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

it to a higher and a higher and higher rank until we reach the highest and we will talk about that. So the battle is different. The fight is different.

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

We find shaytaan to defeat them and keep them away but with our nurse to make it better

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

to tame it and to train it. And Allah man said

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

that you know the whisper of shaitan because it throws all kinds of evil to you.

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

It wants to do whatever God wants to do whatever to distract us from Allah and the worship of Allah and to follow a different path.

00:10:20--> 00:10:29

So shaitan Laura's are tempt us with things that he knows that our knifes like

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

the urinal in nursing Bucha what

00:10:34--> 00:10:43

it is beautification, it is made beautiful and we know that shaitan takes that as even as its weapon as it's his weapon.

00:10:45--> 00:10:59

Her Bucha Huwa Mina Nisa well Bonnin will cannot control the team that they have, you will feel both your material and army will have all of these things material things shaytaan wants this, lure us into it.

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

And want us to get it in any possible way.

00:11:04--> 00:11:14

And shaitan attack us from many different ways. Just like in the last hotbar will come from the front, I will go from come from the back, I will come from the right and I'll come from the left.

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

That's what he said.

00:11:20--> 00:11:28

So he will throw many different things at us things that we may be interested in. But things we may not have even thought about.

00:11:30--> 00:11:55

evil acts that may not even occur to us the shaytaan will come and whisper those acts in our heart. The nuts is different. The nafs knows what it wants. Know it's what attracts her attracts it the most. So it's always making this worse, we're setting the desire for things that the next loves the most and that is more dangerous sometime.

00:11:56--> 00:12:00

Each nurse is different, each self is different. Each soul is different.

00:12:02--> 00:12:24

So some knifes like money and wealth, some knifes like power, some male knifes like women and some women like men. So the nafs keeps on pushing the weakness point that it knows very well. It pushes the vulnerability that we have inside. And that is very dangerous brothers and sisters.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

And that is the difference between a Westwater of a nurse and the worst was selfish shaitan.

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

It will take every possible way to make us follow.

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

So that's why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we say now we do bIllahi min. Cerulean fusina was a yachtie or Medina.

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

But then the next can be a higher level.

00:12:53--> 00:13:05

It doesn't always have to be all of everyone you would ask, Am I this evil? Now we have enough status that has the potential for evil, but also has the potential to be higher to be better.

00:13:07--> 00:13:41

And the second nurse, the nurse that is at a higher level is called a nephila warmer. So the first is innocent Amara, the neffs that commands evil, the second one and Nussle Amar, a NASA warmer and a NASA lawanna is better translated in many different ways but it's the blaming self is this the the knifes that actually questions the X doesn't want us to just go drift beyond and behind our own desires, but questions

00:13:43--> 00:13:53

and it really, it takes itself into some type of reckoning and it blames itself and blames us for things that we commit.

00:13:55--> 00:14:01

The first commands evil, the second sees evil and questioning.

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

Allah subhanaw taala swear by that he said Falah oxymoron be a woman. What an oxymoron be nutsy lawanna

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

Allah swears put a vow so we can get it gets our attention to that type of knifes

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

and your Allah Ma said the scholars may Allah reward all of them said

00:14:27--> 00:14:39

that this knifes a lawanna is also different grades within that category. That category can be big and expensive and it has many different levels in it.

00:14:41--> 00:14:51

So there is this next Allah warmer that commit sins, but reconnects, blames itself and as for repentance.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

There is also the Nazi lawanna that is pushing a sinner put it that is pushing sins away.

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

trying to do all the good acts. But it blames itself

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

for not doing enough good deeds.

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

So we can, that's the lawanna can blame itself for doing evil, or for not doing enough good deeds. And that is even a higher rank

00:15:20--> 00:15:21


00:15:22--> 00:15:24

that phase of an FC lawanna.

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

So when something does a good when someone does a good deed, the snaps blames you could have done better.

00:15:34--> 00:15:42

You did Toorak enough that you could have done for you did 2pm You could have done eight, you gave that much in South Africa, you could have done more.

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

And it's always questioning that then.

00:15:51--> 00:15:54

But then it can go to a higher level.

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

The level where the nuts

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

is meeting the state of Sn

00:16:04--> 00:16:26

the state of worshipping Allah as if we can see Allah and the state of worshiping Allah knowing that if we don't see him the panel with the idea that he truly sees us, and he actually is aware fully aware of whatever else is lurking inside of us, and whatever apps that we do.

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

And that NASA is called a NASA not my inner,

00:16:32--> 00:16:44

the knifes that is settled the knifes that is peaceful, the nuts that is happy and content and have complete Eman and complete satisfaction with Allah subhanho wa taala.

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

That knifes is the goal that we look for brothers and sisters.

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

It is what we look up to be

00:16:57--> 00:17:05

and kind of what Allah tells us that this knifes that defeated its own desires, this snaps that defeated

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

the scenes that lurk within

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

will be settled in peace

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

and on the time when we are about to meet Allah

00:17:18--> 00:17:25

Allah would say yeah yet to have nothing in Erie Jerry in Arabic here albeit and murder Yeah.

00:17:27--> 00:17:34

That Holy theory Badie word holy Jannetty We ask Allah subhana wa Taala for all of us to be of that and

00:17:35--> 00:17:55

that will be called by Allah subhanho wa Taala at the time of death at the time of meeting him and he will call us directly yeah yeah to her Nestle not my inner or that Mahatma in the North. The Nuff said is settled was a piece of iman that surrendered surrender to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala that reach the state of Zen

00:17:57--> 00:18:40

energy Isla beaky, come back to your Lord come back to your master come back to Allah are all the 10 You're satisfied? marbley Yeah 10 And Allah is pleased and satisfied with you. And then Allah says that holy theory Badie enter into my Dominion into her enter into My servants what holy Jannetty and enter into the Jana. We ask Allah subhana wa Tala to make us of all the dwellers of Jana and to make our neffs or the nests of Atman and we make ourselves the people that will work on their own neffs to make it next on multiple inner according matters now we're stuck for Allah loveliness. Lima Lee welcome Fairphone Selma stock theory

00:19:00--> 00:19:09

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala HyVee Imam Al mousseline Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

Subhana Allah the use of beer Harada will be handy he will mela

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that this nurse

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

is trainable.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

This knifes within

00:19:26--> 00:19:39

that can be either Amara le warmer or Mahatma ena. It is up to us to change things within our own nests. Allah subhanho swears by that

00:19:40--> 00:19:50

one FC one Massa? The Alhambra ha Fujimura Ha ha ha. Are the F la Hammonds or Kara Walker, the herberman the Sahar.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

Allah swears by the knifes that he created and he made and then Allah says Allah Maha Fujimura what

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

taqwa, Allah placed of Allah placed two types of forces and desires that can lead this nurse.

00:20:12--> 00:20:18

And that is Aloha Maha. Allah inspired Fujimura.

00:20:19--> 00:20:26

This sins and disobedience were taqwa, and Allah inspired piety and righteousness within.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

So we have a choice.

00:20:30--> 00:20:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and makes us aware, alumna Allah who I named Wally Cernunnos chef attain what had they now hundreds day in

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

the night we give you eyes to see with intellect,

00:20:47--> 00:20:59

tongue and lipstick and express what's within. And Allah says what had they now Nadine, and we showed you both ways, the path of good and the path of evil we're here to biller

00:21:02--> 00:21:13

so we need to work our own on our own nuts. How do we train ourselves? How do we train our own NASS? First is we suppress

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

the shower, the desire that is within

00:21:22--> 00:21:32

Amara, the Allahu and so a person in the market and he was over purchasing things that are all Khaled is money is halal, and what he's buying and halal.

00:21:33--> 00:21:39

And he said why are you doing this? You know, over shopping buying all the great stuff

00:21:40--> 00:21:53

he said it's the head to next year I'm here on Momineen my nerves wanted it so I'm I'm doing that and he said Aquila, Mr. hotness suka che and applies to her Yeah. Is it like anything that your nurse

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

wants you and ask you for you just give it to it?

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

How are you going to train it? How are you going to take control, the nurse will take control of you.

00:22:04--> 00:22:44

And it doesn't mean that we should avoid halal, but we should train ourselves. Now in Ramadan. We abstain from things that are completely halal. We avoid drinking water. We avoid eating regular food. We avoid Halal relationships with our spouses. These are all things that are halal, but it teaches us this is a training camp for the nuts. That when we control ourselves, even with things that are halal, don't over indulge in Halal things, then it becomes easier for us to prevent our nurse from seeking haram

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

and that's the way of Islam the middle way

00:22:51--> 00:23:00

that we don't over indulge in things that are even if it's tolerated, and we keep ourselves straying, untamed.

00:23:03--> 00:23:14

Africa humans occur and also we need to purify and improve ourselves through the mention of Allah subhanho wa Taala through acts of a bad

00:23:15--> 00:23:27

through surrounding our own nafs with righteous other nuts around it. And that is to choose our companionship, to choose our father to choose who we mingle with.

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

So we help each other against our own nuts.

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

On the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that this next will meet

00:23:43--> 00:23:58

what it's doing. Yo Matthijs you do Kelowna? Saimaa amulet, Minh Hiren Mahara. When every knifes will see all the good that it has done, right there in front of it, and we ask Allah to be of those who will have the good

00:23:59--> 00:24:21

one I mean that means to and what this neffs have committed of evil acts of sins acts we ask Allah refuge from that. The word doula under the inner ha Urbina who then died, then the nurse will wish on that day, that there was a vast distance between the nurse and the evil that it's done.

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

When the Sahaba asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam How can we be with the one of the Sahaba is Rasul Allah? How can I be with you in Jannah? He said, I need an ASIC because karate sujood helped me against yourself by increase your sujood by increase your acts of worship.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

And this is the key that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is given us to defeat our own evil to defeat our own selves.

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

And to rise up to the level of unasyn Mothma. Inna

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


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

Eman al Amin.

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

Brothers and sisters, I would leave you with a couple of things

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

that we are seeing

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

an unprecedented throughly surge of this

00:25:24--> 00:25:39

virus, the COVID virus and it is a serious surge that we are going through right now. The only difference that we have and hamdulillah it now we have ways to battle it, we have ways to prevent it.

00:25:40--> 00:25:52

And the Hohokam has said the wise people would say, Don't hammer we hire hieromonk and powderalert. An ounce of prevention is better than a ton of medication or treatment.

00:25:53--> 00:25:57

And we have a way to prevent

00:25:58--> 00:26:04

severe disease and that is the vaccination. And I really

00:26:05--> 00:26:57

ask everyone who is still reluctant, who is still hesitant of receiving the vaccine is to have to work call on Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and take the ASVAB take the causes of prevention, and proceed with the vaccine in sha Allah and the protection is from Allah, but Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us how we can tie up your camel and half our code. Let's tie up that camel. Let's do what we can in prevention, vaccination, social distancing, continue to wear your mask, even if you're vaccinated. This disease can have breakthrough in vaccinated people. It's true, but the people that are dying with it now every day are mostly non vaccinated, over 99% of death are amongst

00:26:57--> 00:27:12

the non vaccinated group. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect you, protect all of us, protect our families, protect our communities, and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us of those when they hear they follow the best of the advice
