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

Welcome back to the community Islam international and a very warm welcome to our guest on the line with us who's going to be with us for a few fleeting moments. Rather Idris camisa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa alaikum. Salaam wa barakato. How are you keeping an umbrella? temporary good, cold? Yeah, you know, in Japan, it's work, but I'm the dealer and you in Joburg busy with a workshop? Yeah, nom de la I'm doing a workshop for singles. You know, for the staff in the World Fair, anything you know. So the the idea in a workshop situation now I've got 15 minutes to do unbelievable things you can have the ladies wearing this for

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

seem a

00:05:02 --> 00:05:20

little perhaps we can cover a lot, what would you like to touch on anything you want whatsoever in your heart, you can talk about some of the challenges we are facing and the month of Ramadan coming here, and what I think families should do, inshallah, it's very critical, you know,

00:05:21 --> 00:06:14

looking at the month of Ramadan coming up in very few days, Alhamdulillah, we find it an opportunity of cleansing ourselves, we find it an opportunity of growing as humans and becoming better developing different traits, different qualities, and an overall positive for us as Muslims. And so the effect of that should be rubbing rubbing off on our families as well. So inshallah, that should happen. But, you know, I do like to talk about the past, but it's very sad. Even issues like, you know, marital issues, some people are not prepared to wait for the month of Ramadan to complete, and they want to institute divorce proceedings, and all of that, and, and then he, you know, we are

00:06:14 --> 00:06:28

living at a time or we speak about a mystery gratification. Our kids grew up with immediate solutions, they get whatever they want, whenever they want. And they often find it difficult to negotiate sometimes

00:06:29 --> 00:07:13

their relationships within the marriage situation, they find hard to forgive the hearts to persevere. And this is fundamentally In fact, I think, wherever you go, I mean, I was at the MC for a wedding last week, and you and you listen to people, they all tell you the same story, you know, that we have spoiled our kids and our kids today are very patient number one. And secondly, they also you know, said one of the mentioned this and it's so true, some of the other that we have lost our innocence, you know that the notion that you know, once you become the adult, the life is so serious with enough time to laugh to smile. And I came across a very interesting statistic. They say

00:07:13 --> 00:08:01

on average, every child lost for what 400 times a day but then every adult on average only lasts for 15 times a day. Now the point is naturally we don't expect to laugh like kids you know in that way. But it also says something about the way we look at things the way we look at life and I think the the kind of joy is supposed to be behold in our homes seems to be not there so I think so these are a whole range of things and yes is true. The month of Ramadan is coming with a time of purification of cleansing the closer to Allah Allah gives us opportunities all the time to come close to swim and my wife inshallah that this Ramadan must be the best ever that people ever had. And the subsequent

00:08:01 --> 00:08:05

Ramadan must be an improvement on this Ramadan you

00:08:06 --> 00:08:51

focusing a little bit on our youth and our children during this month of Ramadan and maybe using this opportunity of Ramadan of being a little distant from our screens and more focused on family focused on our event focused on our our children, maybe we can use this month of Ramadan also to bond and to grow our family ties. Absolutely. And one of the things that I would recommend as your speaking allies so much thought struck me that you know, today with so many massages available yet that every person is going through his own most ways comfortable but I would like to believe, especially when we often distance from our children, no matter they are young adults, that perhaps

00:08:51 --> 00:09:37

we should go to the same mosque for Salah you know, imagine driving, driving your father, going with him to the mosque. And for us coming back and talking about the Torah, we talking about the experience and talking about some of the pearls of wisdom shared by the molana or the Imam. I think that is really, really bonding time. You know, we seem to live in the under the same roof but we seem to live individual lives and it's an opportune time for us to refocus as you rightly indicated, become distant from the screen and press from social media and focus on our spiritual upliftment our development because you know, we human beings, we only understand things that when you go through

00:09:37 --> 00:09:59

some kind of trauma in terms of our health or well then suddenly we begin to appreciate Allah we turn to Him, we make promises to him. And really nothing is more beautiful in the eyes of Allah that when the oma when the time of prosperity your your your you think about him, you know not only the time of adversity and you you think about him, you show gratitude and this is something that we need to change

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

Courage, you know,

00:10:02 --> 00:10:46

this gratitude that we show to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the time of prosperity in the time of ease that alas Allah has blessed us with, certainly in the month of Ramadan is the hadith of Minnesota lollies and promises that our is our sustenance is increased in the month of Ramadan. And we should be all the more grateful for Allah subhanho wa Taala, who gives us so much, and we have so much on our time and our table. And we have to be grateful for that Allah and also coming to the important lesson of sharing and caring for the poor. Not Absolutely, and I think this is critical. I think the the pervasive message is that we must understand that rosy comes from Allah is not through our

00:10:46 --> 00:11:29

smartness, of course, we have to go out and make the effort. But I think sometimes we maybe make so much of it, we get the benefits of the fact that we think that tomorrow is another day and but your whole life thinking about the tomorrow, but we don't live in the present. And I think it's very important to understand that the resources of Allah, they never exhaust in the never ending they infinite resources. And I think it's important to create a kind of balance in our life that the balance was is such that we spend adequate time you know, a prayer and the month of Ramadan, the pray must be increased. We spend adequate time with our families, and none of them feel a sense of

00:11:29 --> 00:12:16

deprivation. We spend adequate time with people that are close to us or extended family. And we spend adequate time really in terms of our spiritual upliftment and development. Because, you know, when you attain the NA Genie, you realize that every day is become a bonus, how often you have heard of people that were young, young, married couple, suddenly, you know, the afflicted with the cancer. And we find that, you know, the whole atmosphere changes. So I think it's very, very critical. You know, it's, you know, every day we lose a day of Ramadan, it should move us to tears. You know, I think one of the biggest ironies that I've come across this, there are more people who seek the moon

00:12:16 --> 00:13:00

of feed than the sikita moon of Ramadan. Again, it shows you also, you know, almost an inversion, you know, values. I'm not suggesting not not to look for the emaan but the same kind of vigor and enthusiasm. We need to look for the moon for Ramadan. Yes, because there's Ramadan brings with it great blessings. And obviously, together with that the month of Ramadan brings with it an opportunity for us an open door opportunity for us to really grow and fast to really become something completely different, something that we would normally think shippable but in the month of Ramadan, we can achieve it. And I think this is an important character, characteristic character

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

trait, for us to have this great, you know, this, this, this drive to be able to achieve what we are not normally able to achieve? Absolutely, we need to do that. Nothing more than that. You know, me besides that is such a valid and pertinent point is to confront our true selves. I think all of us know, our shortcomings. There are some shortcomings that we're known for our families are not known for society, but they are things that we do, these are dark side in many of us and only Allah knows. And I think there must be this kind of commitment to diligence and dedication, to ensure that that becomes a thing of the past, you know, the kind of tusky or spiritual purification, something that

00:13:43 --> 00:14:15

we need to do and I think what is fundamental is, it's not about the image that we have in society, the persona we have is about being authentic and genuine. So the month of Ramana is coming Allah give us the life inshallah, to seat and most importantly for us, to take it with the seriousness it deserves, and I don't think there are many people, you know, who truly understand the importance of this month, the value of this month, the intrinsic and extrinsic value of this month, you know,

00:14:16 --> 00:14:59

Allah Subhana Allah grant us also faith and understanding it is by coming to the aspect of marriage and the issues that you have been dealing with certainly some lessons for us today this week. Yes, you know, an umbrella, you know, what, the, you know, what, what is worrying, you know, is an ALLAH forgive everyone, we're not here to judge people is, you know, at one time, many people are flirting through the cell phones and whatnot. And it goes to another level when these couples who are married, you know, meet in there have a physical relationship, you know, I swear there is gone

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

to that level. And I think also, what is also critical is that when a woman or men is guilty of that relationship of infidelity, I can understand when one of them really wants to know exactly what has happened, and how this has happened. And then you find that often the man or the woman, or depending who's the perpetrator, get very, very impatient with that, and they need to understand that you. And I think what's important is that, you know, you, you do not stop being something purely because you got caught, I think the greatest thing must be that you understand the enormity of what you have done the seriousness of it all. And I think that people do make mistakes. And I think this is one

00:15:47 --> 00:16:35

thing has become a scourge in our community now, that infidelity has become almost like a norm. And not only that is becoming physical, and you find is also an emotional commitment. And kids growing up in the family, they become dysfunctional. So that has been one of the recurring issues I'm dealing with. The other issue is the whole issue. And I tell this to people, you know, please look after your beloved wife, and vice versa. And otherwise, what happens we do not do that, then it is any institution of institution institution, instituting a divorce proceedings, and this can become very, very bitter, acrimonious, you can be financially, you know, very, very damaging. So I think we

00:16:35 --> 00:17:12

need to do that we need to look after our spouses, and we should not be seduced by what's happening around us. The third thing that is always a recurring issue is the issue about parenting and the way we bring up our children. And really, I've seen it in many homes that how some parents are destroying the kids you know, by giving them whatever they want, whenever they want. And that kind of thing creates a very jaundiced view of life because life is not about all of those things, I think the best father or mother is a person not only give them things, but just do things with them and empower them right kind of attitude and values you know.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:16

So, this

00:17:17 --> 00:18:02

this marriage bond that we have obviously has far reaching implications in terms of our personal relationship, children, the development, extended family and all all the rest that goes along with it. Now in this month of Ramadan that is coming up how can we use this month of restraint this month of control this month of sober to enhance our managers? Yeah, in fact, I just send it off for this morning I got to go right I just say this to you. That you know, I think there are many people who have been guilty of adultery relationships or infidelity is unbeknownst to their spouse is the month of Ramadan, you got a very serious time to reflect on this. And to desist from contacting the other

00:18:02 --> 00:18:44

individuals and saying goodbye tweets and turning to Allah and it's not about waiting for Ramadan to go and then you rekindle your passion and love and there's something unacceptable I think each one of us needs to do that. We need to create a culture from when these meaningful routine we do things to support our wives in whatever they do. And because they also need to pray they also need to develop themselves spiritually but some of them sadly spend most of them in the kitchen mela also bless them for that. And I think it's important thing important for our children also to become part of the United family. So that Mashallah that we can leave a meaningful legacy announcing

00:18:44 --> 00:19:24

00:22:42 --> 00:23:42

Welcome back to a metric on radio Islam International. And we have made a wealth to our guests every semester but nevertheless we will continue on our discussion. I want to speak about in this half hour a letter that is called rissalah to chef has some research that the chef has said it is a letter that was prepared is a small work written by the esteemed demand and Azadi Rahim Allah He authored the great here along with Dean here are loom entity as it is known. This is one very short letter short work of Imam Ali Rahim Allah and inshallah has given you a brief just about this letter. The phrase scharff a saddle is a common Arabic expression in it that this phrase is used to

00:23:42 --> 00:24:31

refer to a sort of spiritual expansion of the heart or chest and this then gives rise to inner illumination, tranquility, and relief from anxiety and worrying is a phrase that is used in a number of places in the Quran occurring when when going to face their own and convey the message to him. Musa alayhis salam midrash Allah Subhana Allah beshara the sadly our explained for me my chest will simply Emery make my task easy for me. Rational offer the term magnezone portfolio law remove the nut from my tongue so they understand what I say. And with regards to reminding Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam of his great blessings. Allah Allah said Adam nasura laka sadhak have not

00:24:31 --> 00:24:54

explained it for you your chest and Imam or savonia Rahim Allah in in in explaining this verse he says, the chest of of Rasulullah sallallahu was expanded with true guidance, faith and the light of the Quran. In McAfee states that the phrase surfacer means we have filled your chest with light and made it expensive and unconfined. And

00:24:55 --> 00:25:00

just as Allah Allah has made the Prophet sallallahu Ellison's just

00:25:00 --> 00:25:50

Expensive he has made his Shara that is the law generous living easy and without difficulty or never and never miss a mama mama was earlier online title this letter, sir for sudden, because this letter is actually in regards to prep or leave the preparing for test preparation for this. And so, properly preparing for death is a means of attaining spiritual expansion, elimination and comfort. And we need to all become among those Salah makers among those who experience that state and will ready and beautify themselves properly for the journey to meet the Divine Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Mr. Moses le Rahim Allah. In this letter, he starts off he says, I begin with the name

00:25:50 --> 00:26:12

of Allah, most merciful, most loving, we rely on Allah and seek help from Allah alone. All praise is due to Allah and made blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, Mohammed, his family and his companions, one and all. And then he carries on he starts off with a verse of the Quran he came, he stays where he says

00:26:14 --> 00:27:04

from insha Allah Who says within Islam if a while and remember be for a little Casa de colo boohooman de la AKP Bala, the movie, it is one whose che is one whose chest Allah has opened to Islam, so that he has received light from his Lord, no better than one who is hard hearted. That means the one who's just has been opened from a lust for handle diner and filled with no from Allah subhanaw taala is much better. And so the loss of Allah he was asked about Shahada, and about the opening expansion of the chest and he said, it is a light it is a light cast into the heart by which the chest is opened and expanded. And he said the lies that was asked is a way of recognizing a

00:27:04 --> 00:27:46

person who possesses that light. And episode Allah has responded yes, those people can be recognized by the indifference towards the abode of delusions, the indifference towards the abode of delusions, that is the life of this world, the indifferent towards the life of this world, the constant turning towards the abode of eternity, they don't tend towards this world return always to the era and the preparation for death before it arrives. Subhana Allah three qualities three qualities are sort of lots of a lot of Smith outlined, as qualities of a person who's whose heart has been opened, expanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:53

For who islandwood in Nairobi and so that person is upon light

00:27:54 --> 00:28:20

that he has received from his lab terracotta Allah, Allah holism said, indifference towards the abode of delusions, that means indifference towards this world, constant turning towards the abode of eternity, that is the hereafter and preparation for death before it arrives. That is the quality of that person and a vessel Allah Allah has been asked how does one prepare for this and Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam said,

00:28:22 --> 00:28:46

and those of you who remember it, the most of the best prepared for it, those of you who remember it, most of the best prepare for it, that is, the more you remember that the more you will prepare for that for death. The more you think of your of your demands, while you think of your return to Allah subhanaw taala, the more you will be prepared for your return to Allah dattara. And

00:28:48 --> 00:29:28

he says, that you may have asked May Allah grant you success about that is the Venus for death and the conditions and means of attaining that spiritual state. When is a servant of Allah ready for that? What should one strive to achieve so that he or she is fully prepared for this path? in reading this letter, the demand Allah says Allah Rahim Allah has prepared calls this the Shahada, the letter of extension of the heart of the chest, which is actually a letter in preparation for death. And he says that know that death is an expression used for the journey from this world to the Divine Presence.

00:29:29 --> 00:30:00

For to Allah is the ultimate return. Anyone traveling to a royal court is in need of three things for his journey. Anyone traveling to the Royal Court needs three things for the journey one severing of the ties that keep him from advancing severing of ties that keep him from advancing. Number two preparation of provisions for the road and three and an unacceptable gift for the king to present to him and by

00:30:00 --> 00:30:06

Which to attain His pleasure. So three things, you're going to a king when to visit the kingdom, to visit somebody, you need to

00:30:07 --> 00:30:23

need to prepare three things have three things ready for the journey, one sever the ties that keep you from advancing, number two preparation of provisions for the road. And that was pretty unacceptable gift for the king. So you can give it to him and he can take these with you.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

This is what I love, I love what he says his

00:30:31 --> 00:30:51

explanation with him and he says that similarly, the traveler journey into the Divine Presence of Allah subhanaw taala is in need of three things, preparation of provisions, cutting of ties, and offering a gift of the serverless provision is provision refers to a deep consciousness of Allah, that is,

00:30:52 --> 00:31:31

that is described as duck Allah and Allah. Allah says what there's a widow for inner failures, it's aquatic provision with you. For the journey, the best of provision is the best of provision is taqwa. And the cutting of ties means that you sever the heart of the 70 of the heart from the pleasures of this world. This was what was meant by Priscilla Lawson Allahu Allah Islam and he said in deference towards the abode of divisions, some of you sal Allahu Allah isms explanation, tying up with cutting off ties, it means that the severing of the heart from the pleasures of the soil

00:31:36 --> 00:32:20

and then the gift to be presented to the king is love. That is the simple gift we present to the kingdom gift of love. And the origin of this love is in through my refer to recognition of Allah and Eman in true faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what gifts do we present to the king love? Where do you find this love, in recognition of Allah and in a man. Now we go into further detail in these three particular points, one, cutting ties, second, making provision, and third presenting a gift with regards to provisions for the road.

00:32:21 --> 00:33:05

There is the first aspect which is the provisions for the road that we are going to be traveling on you need to take something with you to eat some as you name as returning. Back costs are something that you need to eat. There is no provision for the journey to the hereafter except the Karnataka means what is the meaning of supper? taqwa means obeying the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala and avoiding that which Allah is prohibited to that extent, that one fulfills all of us commandments, remains far removed from all his prohibitions, that is taqwa Sakura means that you fulfill and you obey the commands of Allah. And you avoid those things that are last prohibited to

00:33:05 --> 00:33:52

that extent that you fulfill all of us commands and you remain very far removed from all of the things that Allah subhanaw taala is prohibited. And if one has always done so always lived the life of Chuck was in this type of excellence in instant, that is without equal. But if a person is some deficiency with regards to taqwa, if they have some shortcomings, some shortfalls acquire is not up to that level, then they will not be ready for the hereafter except by rectifying these shortfalls, these deficiencies and this can be done in in many different ways. First way is that we need to analyze and reflect on the state that we are in from when we first reached the age of Buelow of

00:33:52 --> 00:33:54

becoming body becoming mature,

00:33:56 --> 00:34:23

reflect on one on our state from that time, and then we must make ourselves busy with making up for whatever has transpired in our lives. And we need to correct those matters in which we had heard in which we had made mistakes in which we had done something wrong. And in regards to the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala we should begin with the fundamental pillars of Islam, Salah, Zakah,

00:34:24 --> 00:34:46

fasting Hajj, even any shortcoming in that they need to make up for that makeup sada Omri in our Salah makeup cada for the first thing that you must check out work out what has to be what had to be paid over the years, pay that Hajj. If we have not done we have to make it and make sure as long as we have the means.

00:34:47 --> 00:34:59

And we should continue doing so until we are certain that there are no obligations that remain upon us. provisions. They are of two types. The first type is entirely related to the right

00:35:00 --> 00:35:45

Have Allah subhanaw taala not to the rights of people fornication drinking alcohol listening to musical instruments, engaging in forbidden acts. In a disobeying a provision of this type can be remedied you can remedy it you sincerely make Toba Allah subhanaw taala you feel intensity get a regret for the sin and you seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and to make you promise that you will never return to that sin again, and in a sincere repentance and Toba is a remedy for every type of sin. Even the person who makes Toba is like one who has not sinned at all this comes in handy from Minnesota law serum making Toba it is counted as if we have not sinned at all. And the

00:35:45 --> 00:36:03

second type of prohibition is with relate in relation to the rights of of servants of Allah subhanaw taala here on someone in terms of wealth or reputation in this can be rectified by giving the oppressed person back whatever was due to him. Who

00:36:05 --> 00:36:51

knows also we should seek to do this in all our dealings with others initiatives scrutinize our personal relationships carefully. Make sure that you're not unjust, any individual and we should seek to liberate ourselves from the rights of others upon us, if we have hurt or harmed somebody, then you know, replace whatever wrong we have done. Make amends for what you have done for backbiting for speaking of others asked for forgiveness and and make dua forgiveness for those people as well. And this should be women of them then we should be prepared inshallah by asking for forgiveness, making to offer forgiveness for others and asking for forgiveness for others as well.

00:36:52 --> 00:36:55

inshallah will be prepared to face Allah subhanaw taala.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:01

And then, if the oppressed person by his passed away, before we have

00:37:02 --> 00:37:45

actually asked for forgiveness, so they become otherwise unreachable, then we should increase in good deeds. And, you know, we can increase to that amount that we believe that would be sufficient for the oppressed person, if we went to that person on the day of the AMA, and then know that sufficient provisions for this journey is in obeying Allah's commands, abstaining from his prohibitions, striving to perform numerous extra good deeds and good deeds as a means of elevating our spiritual rank and the good deeds that we do. The more we do, the more Allah will elevate our rank in the AFS era. So that is the first aspect of provisions for the road and then inshallah the

my go to mosque every Friday, Nita Prada stay. And I'm so proud to see this big gathering.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:43

We are discussing ma'am. Alice's Alice molars letter scharff research area solid to surface. A letter in preparation for death. He mentioned three things he mentioned that when you're going to visit the king, you have to take three things with you. The first is that you have to, I think

00:40:44 --> 00:41:26

you have to take provisions for your journey. Second, you have to cut ties that are holding you back. And third, you have to take a gift for the king. So we spoke about provisions for the journey. The best provision is taqwa of Indians of Allah Subhana Allah explain what is taqwa second is cutting off of ties, a traveler may be tied down by his or her debtors, as if they were holding on to the very tails of his clothing, and preventing him from moving towards his destination. In order to advance this journey, the traveler must free himself from them and break all ties with them. Similarly, the attachments that prevent one from journeying towards the hereafter numerous, yet all

00:41:26 --> 00:42:02

of them are connected to the love of this world, longing for this world, inclination to the lowest self, or inclination of the lower self, towards the world. And a person who is no beloved in this world is completely ready for a person who loves someone in this world but finds that the love of Allah is stronger, more intense in his heart, the person is also ready for his level. He's not like one who doesn't have any levels in this world. And he signed the servant his true love for Allah tala is that he or she does not have any feelings of dislike, towards death.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:47

When a person truly loves Allah subhanaw taala there is no feelings in your heart, that it is like Steph, no matter when that may come, that person is very, an embracing of death. And if a person has aversion to death, this is a sign to this world. And the status that we have in this world is more beloved to us than meeting a lot earlier in the year after, and the person who dislikes them, because he has not yet rectified around serious committed against others, overcome weaknesses that he has within himself. This person will be excused for this like in depth, but they cannot be considered ready for the journey ahead the journey and the person was truly ready for this, for

00:42:47 --> 00:42:50

they've already exerted himself in these matters,

00:42:51 --> 00:43:04

and would not have left any task and done that would distract him busy his heart at the time and death is supposed to overcome overthinking. And by disconnecting our hearts from the life of this world,

00:43:05 --> 00:43:25

or disconnecting our hearts from the life of this world, this can never be fully achieved unless you also possess a balanced character and a sound in upright heart. And this occurs by purifying the heart from ostentation, envy, hatred, arrogance, and all of the negative negative qualities that

00:43:27 --> 00:43:44

your mama and daddy sees that we have mentioned in our work as Monique at the third section of FL Ana Modine, and these are the elements of the heart that must be cured for an ill person cannot be prepared to journey because he is spiritually sick and they cannot be prepared to journey.

00:43:46 --> 00:44:33

It's also Mama. As Alejandro says it's not a requirement that the servant be entirely free of negative qualities. But the requirement is that they remain weak inside us and not intensified by actions or words that are contrary to the path of taqwa and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said the child of Adam Elisa will never be safe from three things, envy, fearing evil, omens, and having bad opinions of others, I will inform you of a means of escaping from them. If you feel envious towards someone, do not seek to attain what he or she has. If you observe an omen, said to be evil, continue without any change in your behavior. And if you think he'll have someone, do not try to confirm your

00:44:33 --> 00:44:59

thoughts by discussing them with other people. Do not try to confirm your thoughts by discussing them with other people don't discuss. Third, discuss people who have done wrong and evil with others at all. And so, my mother Sally says if you remove all of these elements entirely from an inner self, it is not a necessity a necessary condition for being saved itself.

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

phases that we know are we do not,

00:45:03 --> 00:45:05

do not manifest these evil

00:45:06 --> 00:45:29

elements for acting in accordance accordance to them. And abundance character, palisade is what is really essential what is meant that expression Holcomb hasn't. One who does not attain that lofty character, as mentioned in the Hadith, through through struggle, hard work recognition of the areas in which one has been self deluded.

00:45:30 --> 00:46:02

And then Emanuel says, it continues this is all the negative qualities, we have mentioned, are produced by love of this world. If a servant realizes that the Hereafter is better, year after is everlasting, and he would certainly prefer the hereafter over the life of this world in such an intuitive realization is the fruit of this world. Such knowledge is what comprises the branches of faith. And then finally, the third provision for the journey is the gift that we take for the king. And so a traveler must be tied down by his or her.

00:46:04 --> 00:46:27

The third thing the gift from Allah says Allah subhanaw taala says, that it's similar to the hereafter should be to present to Allah subhanaw taala a gift of faith, and this engender his love for Allah subhanaw taala here we mean maarif of Allah subhanaw taala such recognition of Allah, that overwhelmed the servant completely in overtakes his entire heart.

00:46:29 --> 00:46:46

It is as if the servant actually sees the last panel that deputy Muhammad Shah of love, he has for last panel data and that he man then becomes something vital to his heart, which becomes persistent and consistent to the extent that nothing comes to the servant's heart

00:46:47 --> 00:47:00

in mind, except Allah subhanho wa Taala Neva in deep rooted thoughts, nor in fleeting thoughts. If you ever a mammal, the Dalai Lama says that a constant

00:47:03 --> 00:47:46

awareness and focus on Allah Subhana, Allah extended not even a fleeting thought, in this one's mind is the highest state of favorite when you think of Allah, you think of Allah alone, when your whole day you just think of Allah not even for a moment, even by chance, anything besides Allah cross your heart in thought, and this is the first the lowest level of faith is like believing that someone named the need is inside the house, because one has been told. So by a person you can trust, second level of faith is to believe that there is in the house because one because you hear the sound of his voice. The third level of faith is that you actually see this person's aid was in the house.

00:47:48 --> 00:47:54

And each level produces an increased amount of happiness and delight, the same servant is compared to the lower one.

00:47:56 --> 00:48:30

There were PV before it, and these feelings cannot be precisely described, can only be experienced with the heart. And those are the varying degrees of a man in Allah subhanaw taala with regard to the different branches of faith, and numerous, the roots of three, belief in Allah, anything gamma, anything, the truth, fullness of Rasulullah sallallahu. The final view of Allah and complete faith in Allah include includes beliefs in the attributes of Allah includes belief

00:48:31 --> 00:48:33


00:48:34 --> 00:48:48

the these attributes of Allah subhanaw taala explained in the Quranic cream and they are not combined innovations uncertainty, wavering adult and we have to believe that Allah has perfect knowledge and absolute ability, several Allah

00:48:50 --> 00:49:24

Allah Allah as well is always realized in it is effectual, there's no exact exceptions to it. And we should affirm with certainty whatever one of the novel attributes of Allah subhanaw taala when we weekend, and then we should be naive in regards to the last day that we would be recompensed in accordance to our actions, rewarded for obedience, punished for disobedience. And this is sufficient for us to recognize the loss of 100 Allah and it is not obligatory upon us to, to

00:49:25 --> 00:49:26


00:49:27 --> 00:49:44

know more details with regards to a las panatela and how it literally exists what is the description of Allah subhanaw taala and we have to believe that personal loss of Allah wants to put in everything that he taught us. And if we believe this, even if we do not know the teachings of Islam in detail,

00:49:45 --> 00:49:59

other than what is needed, necessary and obligatory. It is sufficient for us to have a man in a suit a loss of Omaha and Islam, like that. And this is what my mother Angela Lee says, Is preparation for death and Uttarakhand success to those who say

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

To ready themselves for the journey ahead and

00:50:04 --> 00:50:26

Mama, lolly then concludes the letter with words to all follow along success and protection. All praise is due to Allah in the beginning and the end May peace and blessings be upon the noble messenger, Mohammed Salah lost his family and companions. And this letter was completed by a large health and good favor may BLESSINGS TO

00:50:29 --> 00:50:53

ME blessings be upon us to the loss of Allah Hardison and his family Subhana Allah a beautiful letter, something that we can really benefit from and something that we can really implement in our lives which is gone. Now two minutes before 12 that was the letter on preparation for their test. Results the shelf has settled, translated into English. It is originally from Mr. malla Rosati law.

00:50:55 --> 00:51:06
