00:00:41--> 00:01:32

Respected viewers and listeners We begin by praising Almighty law sending salutations upon our beloved nivia Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Alhamdulillah after completing a series on evaluable ramen and lessons from the first plague in Islamic history, we are starting a series which is perhaps slightly different from what we have done and that is, does kiya the purification of the heart as explained in the Quran and Hadith. And let us understand the background and the importance of this. Align the Holy Quran when he describes the objectives of our beloved nebia Karim Sol Salaam and this is done in several places in the Holy Quran. In the first supatra, in Surah, Baqarah and

00:01:32--> 00:02:23

then again in the fourth to power up Allah subhana wa Taala has made mention of this nukkad Mandela well meaning Allah has done a tremendous favor upon the believers by sending them upon them, a prophet of Almighty Allah Rasool Allah to Allah He Maya t y is a key him and among the former objectives, major objects chalk objectives of our beloved Nivea cream sauce them he actually him hayati, he is to read the IRS and the commands of Allah tala to people to teach them the Kitab the column of Allah and hikma and wisdom and in both these verses there is a specific objective of our beloved nebia cream sauce them which is known as we use a key him to purify the oma and Allah have

00:02:23--> 00:03:01

explained this, that in the Quran and Hadith, just as you have commands pertaining to fit to pertaining to the external aspect of human life, whether it be salaat in terms of humanoid, whether it be in terms of the importance of halaal risk in terms of trade and business, they are also together with that they are commands of the Quran and Hadith which is pertaining to the heart. And those are like for example, the importance of cultivating sincerity, Siddiq

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

and aspects with regard to love concern for humanity, kindness, compassion, compassion, and also staying away from the negative attributes of the hearts like doing things for name and fame, jealousy, malice, hatred, greed, wantonness, heedlessness. All of those are also made mentioned and have been referred to in the Quran and Hadith. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says one of the objectives of our beloved Nivea cream sauce Islam is to purify people. Now this is very interesting because in the Quran and Hadith thing is a reference to the evil of the heart and the aspects which illuminate and radiate the heart. But despite that, there is a specific objective of purification of

00:03:54--> 00:04:43

the heart. And of course, Allah will thereafter speak and say that, from there comes the importance with regard to tabula rasa, the adornment of one's character, the aspect of the schema purification, the aspect of Sufi ism, and that will be a completely different type of topic, which I will not want to go into. However, what we do understand from this is the importance of purification of the heart which has been mentioned as one of the objectives of our beloved Nivea cream sauce number two purification of the heart In which way purification of the heart in terms of curing it from the lowly beastial attributes, some of which I have already given some examples of, and if we take it at

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

the root of the skier, the root of purification is the heart. So the heart is very interesting, because in every culture, people have used metaphors, alluding to the heart, in every culture, to talk about the heart. So we say a person is how

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

Heart, he has no kindness he has no compassion, he has no mercy. Sometimes we say he wear his heart on the sleeve, that he cannot conceal his emotion, he readily gives expression to his emotion. Sometimes we say a person is warm hearted. So it means he is a person who has a warmness he has care he is concerned. And these are some of the things that we have spoken, and have people allude to with regard to the heart. And many Western writers, you know, they go on to say that the brain is the center of consciousness. In Islamic tradition, we regard the heart to be the center of consciousness, the center of spirituality, although people have tried to reconcile it by saying that

00:05:48--> 00:06:42

the greatest connection in the body is the connection between the brain and the heart. Nevertheless, when we say and we look at this, in terms of the purification of the heart and how the heart has been alluded to, in most cultures, in all cultures, there is no greater understanding and emphasis upon this, then in the Quran and Hadith. So that's in Surah siofok Allah Allah says, while Otto Zinio mobifone yo mulayam for Omar whatever one that Oh Allah do not disgrace us on the day of Tiamat. On that day, neither wealth of family would be of any assistance laminata labia Calvin, Sally except the person who comes to Allah.

00:06:43--> 00:07:28

With a colobus Salim a pure heart, the person who comes to Allah, another day of Tiamat, with a pure heart, he will be the only one who will be able to be saved. And this has been so beautifully explained in a hadith of our beloved Mumia Kareem salsa when he said, an hour in the field just said the Buddha. Verily, in the heart, t in the body, there is a piece of flesh, and that is our solo hat, or Salah had Salah hell just said that when that is correct and reformed, the entire body will be correct and reformed with the first edit just a Dooku and then whether that is corrupt, the entire body will be corrupt. And we're here

00:07:29--> 00:07:45

and remember that that is the heart. So we understand the importance of the series, the purification of the heart, and inshallah, in the coming programs, we will be speaking about aspects of the purification of the heart. May Allah make it beneficial while through the 100 reliability
