be managed and the reason that

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

offers useful one a lot Peace and blessings young Prophet Muhammad, from Milan, why don't you tell them and allow those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

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

The topic of today's football

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

was the heart.

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

And the presentation of the Islamic view

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

concerning the heart

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

began by quoting a very famous Hadith

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

it is in the form of knowing, and another collection

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

in which the Bible has said

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


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

things which are permissible halaal are clear.

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

And those which are prohibited,

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

are also clear.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

And between them, there is an area of obscurity,

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

a gray area,

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

which is not understood by most people.

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

However, the one who avoid that gray area

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

as protected his religion and his honor.

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

And whatever falls into the gray area,

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

falls into

00:01:40--> 00:01:41


00:01:44--> 00:01:45

the gray area itself

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

is prohibited, but that it needs eventually to the wife.

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

And the alarm went on to explain what he meant by saying that fall into the private, he said

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

that everything for every ruler has a sanctuary, an area of land which is his own.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14


00:02:16--> 00:02:18

if a person raises sheep,

00:02:19--> 00:02:28

right next to the border of that house, the sheep are liable to cross over and eat from the sanctuary.

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

And the border of a law's sanctuary

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

is the

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

prohibited area. The gray area is right next,

00:02:45--> 00:02:49

I would say that the sanctuary is the alarm and the water is that gray area.

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

And if you hang around that gray area you're liable to step into the private.

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

Then he went on to say that in everybody

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

there is

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

a portion of flesh

00:03:06--> 00:03:07


00:03:08--> 00:03:09

if it is good,

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

it is pure, then the rest of the body is pure.

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

And if it becomes diseased, if it becomes corrupted or rotten than the rest of the body becomes corrupted and rotten.

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

And he went on to say

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

that it is none other than the heart

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


00:03:33--> 00:03:35

the question usually arises

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

how it is

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

that the heart can play such a major role

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

in the body?

00:03:45--> 00:03:50

When we know that there is such a thing as heart transplant.

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

And they do

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

how it is that the elements described the heart in this fashion.

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

Well, we know that there is such a principle as

00:04:06--> 00:04:11

you can transplant the heart of a criminal into the chest of a righteous person.

00:04:12--> 00:04:19

And that doesn't make him a criminal. And you have the heart of a righteous person into the body of a criminal and doesn't make it right.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

So what then, is the bumper sticker?

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

He didn't say it is a composite.

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


00:04:30--> 00:04:31

we have to understand that

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

when we speak of a human being

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

a clump of flesh and bones.

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

That human being is not real, or it's not a true human being unless

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

he is infused by the Spirit.

00:04:52--> 00:04:57

Because man is not just the flesh. He is both the flesh and the spirit.

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

So when we speak of the heart, we're not speaking nearly of that organ, the organ, but that organ which is in contact with the spirit, is the combination of the spirit and that organ, which now plays that role,

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

you as a human being, who

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

is fed faced with trials

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

and not

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

so many examples, that we we all know, within ourselves that we feel,

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

we talk about a pain in the heart having a pain in your heart,

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

it is something which is it is not, it is not purely physical, and it is not purely spiritual, it's the combination of.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

So, that central point

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

where, the

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

physical organ of the body, which we know physically speaking, if it goes back,

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

physically the body starts to go back, when

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

and if the heart is healthy, in general the body is healthy enough.

00:06:11--> 00:06:19

But that alone does not determine the state of sickness or health of the individual as a complete human being.

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

Now, if the spiritual aspect of the heart

00:06:25--> 00:06:32

is good, then the spiritual aspect of that human being that whole body now becomes

00:06:33--> 00:06:41

the actions which are performed by that body are good actions. But if that spiritual part becomes diseased, then the action
