hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ma.

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

Last time we were talking about the path of purification in Islam,

00:00:18--> 00:00:33

in which talked in general about, you know, the starting point of this process and, and the nature of this journey, the journey of, you know, self purification or purifying our souls and parts for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:00:34--> 00:01:12

And we said that we in this process, purify our hearts, our souls, our income by seeking the means of halaal income and giving Zakat and giving sadaqa for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and sometimes donating illegal, illegal, you know, income, you get rid of the illegal income to purify your income, or your money or wealth. And also, we said we purify our tank we have to talk about the dangers of using the tank and the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today we'll talk about in shallow focus on purification of the heart.

00:01:13--> 00:01:22

And the question the first question that comes to the mind why, why do we purify our hearts

00:01:23--> 00:02:14

and the answer of our roadmap all our desert, less Aveda in Indonesia to will pm less Aveda Ellen nausia This is a principle less Aveda in Indonesia to my pm Illa Anil Kala with Calvin Salim, and this is what Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, so is that they said there is no other way of salvation on the Day of Judgment except that we should meet Allah subhanaw taala with with a pure heart and sound heart. And this is what the last point Allah says in Surah t Shara yo Malayan ferromet 1111 at aloha with Calvin serene on a day neither wealth nor children will be of any benefit. And this is a clear principle here in our Deen. And then last Saturday, the next day, he

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

said but only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned two things, wealth, and he mentioned only children.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

But many our people here in this life

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

might, you know, the tend to get attached to many things.

00:02:37--> 00:03:00

They emotionally get attached to many things, they might also they might develop a strong attachment to their wealth, so much so that they give up giving Zakat or giving sadaqa for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they allow money to control them, instead of them controlling the money because money is a tool. Money does not mean anything, it is a tool.

00:03:02--> 00:03:24

It has a natural meaning in Islamic Sharia. We shouldn't love money. I mean, we should not, you know exceed the limits the Sharia our limits, because loving money, to love your wealth to love your money is something part of our nature will talk about it. But we should not exceed the sheer limits when it comes to this issue.

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

And, you know,

00:03:29--> 00:03:58

so we do the point is, we shouldn't allow money to control us. And they said they might also develop a strong attachment to their children, and this is normal. This is normal we are we are supposed to love our children, cherish them and enjoy them when they are when they are young. And also have a warm relationship with our children. But the point is, or the question is in Islam, how do you manage this, this love?

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

And the answer is, as long as you don't allow this relationship

00:04:06--> 00:04:33

to make you disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala then you are in the safe side. And this applies to every relationship, your relationship with your friends, with your parents, with your family members, with your colleagues, with your country, with everything in your life. As long as you don't allow this relationship to make you disobey Allah, then you are in the safe side and this love could be

00:04:34--> 00:04:41

described as a natural love. Because Allah, Allah created us this way. It's part of our nature.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

And so basically these are the two main distractions in our life, in the life of every human being. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Allah knows best and Allah knows best, but this is the reason maybe Allah subhana wa Taala mentioned

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

These two things, two distractions, but he did not mention the other types of distractions, the other types of attachment. There are some other distractions in our life.

00:05:12--> 00:05:55

But not everyone, for example, derive his worth from his degree, or education. And not everyone yearns, or has a desire to have the status and fame in the community. And not everyone takes pride in his family lineage, to the extent that he puts down other people from other families and other countries, not everyone has this problem. So though these problems are serious problems, these issues are serious problems, but not everyone is suffering from them. But we are all born with the desire to have more money and make more money. And we are all born with this inclination to love our children.

00:05:56--> 00:06:05

And the question again, or the challenge again, how do you manage this love? How do you manage this relationship

00:06:06--> 00:06:26

by him, so, basically, the conclusion here regarding this is that Allah subhanaw taala is saying that these two things will be of no avail on the Day of Judgment. And the only thing that will be useful for everyone is a sound and a pure heart. So this is the main as you can see this main reason

00:06:27--> 00:06:42

you know, why we should you know, care about the purification of our hearts. The second main reason that should motivate every believer, every Muslim to rectify and purify His heart is that the last man Allah tala Dolgellau

00:06:44--> 00:07:35

does not look at our bodies, our physical appearance, does not look at our money, he does not look at our family status. All these things are not important in the sight of Allah subhana wa. And as the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam observed in Allah Allah Allah Allah amico. What are Illa su oricom wakeeney illa kulu become American, and this is in Sahih Muslim sola says himself in this hadith Verily, Allah does not look at your bodies or shapes. He does not. He does not look at our physical appearance in a different version of this hadith landru illa Sami comala mo alikum. So he doesn't care about our wealth, you are wealthy, you are poor, it doesn't matter in the sight of

00:07:35--> 00:07:46

Allah subhanaw taala because this dunya has no value in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. As I said, this money is only a tool. We use it, if we use it in the right way.

00:07:47--> 00:08:25

We use it to accomplish our goals. And actually the true believers use all their resources to get that noble meanness with Allah subhanaw taala to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So they use all resources, their resources to serve the Dean of philosophy, no, this is the key then the behavior of the true believers and that was the last element that was his lifestyle. Use all his resources for the sake of Allah to serve the deen of Allah subhanaw taala his wealth, his family, his connections, his status in the community, everything was used to serve the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:26--> 00:08:37

So here so Lhasa Sallam said he looks at your hearts and deeds. Now when we plan to receive a very important guests

00:08:38--> 00:08:49

at home, we make sure that the home The house is clean, right? That everything is placed in its right place because we are receiving a very important guest

00:08:50--> 00:08:55

or if we plan to meet someone important, we make sure that we are well dressed.

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

Isn't that true?

00:08:58--> 00:09:41

right we do it we all do it. If we have interview for going to an important gathering, we make sure that we are well dressed. Now Ursula salami saying that Allah subhana wa Taala you know, looks at our hearts. So the true believer, you know the duty of the true believer now. He knows that the lust pantalla is looking at his heart. So what is his obligation now his duty is to clean to make sure that his heart is clean and pure. And he should remove all dirt are talking about dirt here not talking about physical dirt, talking about diseases with problems both bad feelings and emotions that are less panatela is not pleased with

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

and also the owner lady said we should feel shy or ashamed. That's the last pantalla my my may look at our hearts and finding them some arrogance or some hypocrisy or some showing off or some attachment to other people or Alliance on other humans.

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

Or any other disease and as the other sickness, carry it around Allah de la resentment or resenting the decree philosopher Hana without any other problem that might cause us to be disgraced or having a lower ranking in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:10:19--> 00:11:07

So the roadmap he said we should know, and he that Allah subhanaw taala is well aware of every single thing about us. How we're created knows knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows about every atom of our being about every hidden parts of our souls, every secret thought or action, he knows every single thing about us. And that's why we have to be careful. We have to pay attention we have to be aware about his knowledge subhana wa Taala because he is he knows every single feeling that you know that crosses your mind or your heart as a human being. And he said that his knowledge we know that the Quran and the Sunnah tell us that his knowledge extends from the unimaginable in

00:11:07--> 00:11:56

the vastness of this the heavens and to include the inner depths of our our human hearts that's why I Lost Planet Allah said in Surah Kahf Allah tala in Santa wanna Allah mama to wish wish to be enough so wanna know acabo la human hablan worried worried the last battle a saying here wanna know apropos la inhabited worry, we have certainly created man and we know what his what his soul whispers to him and we are near to him than his jugular vein. The third main reason yet one for this spiritual work is that you know, the heart enjoys a very special very, very important position in our system. So basically the heart is the king

00:11:58--> 00:12:47

and the body parts are his troops is the king if is the king is his pious is virtuous, all the body parts or his troops will be most likely we will do they will we will establish justice on Earth. If the king if the king is corrupted, then his troops most likely will spread corruption on the earth. And that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and we're in nephele just said the Moodle is a solid solid, solid healthcare Sudoku. We're either faster that faster than just a Dooku lol, who hasn't had it for a while emammal Bukhari Muslim Rahmatullah Allah Hema, so in this hadith the Messenger of Allah is saying, in the body, there is a piece of flesh, if it is sound, the

00:12:47--> 00:13:05

whole body will be sound, if it is corrupted, then the whole body will be corrupted. This was me saying a piece of flesh, if it is sound, whole body sound, good, if it is corrupted, then the whole body is corrupted, verily, it is the heart. So, basically, if you take care of your heart,

00:13:06--> 00:13:48

Allah subhanaw taala will take care of you and everything will be fine in your life. If you take care of the engine, for example, most likely you will continue inshallah you make your finish your trip, and you make it to your destination, if you take care of the engine, but if you neglect the engine, and you take care of the body of your car, mostly there will come a time when your car will collapse. And you cannot continue in your ship. So this is the same you can apply the same analogy to, to the to our hearts. The Quran has confirmed this meaning. So the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala has attached great importance, you know, to the heart, when it comes to the process of

00:13:48--> 00:13:59

learning, understanding, you know, intellectual power. And the Quran was described as the main instrument of learning and understanding alpha

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

now palooka life Kahuna via

00:14:03--> 00:14:18

because many, many physicians and many scientists that they believe or they used to believe now they're changing their mind. They're changing their theories, they used to believe that the center of learning in our system is a brain

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

that making decisions and all you know in all the processes, you know the way we process information and process knowledge and the way we learn and understand things in this life. Everything is everything comes from from the mind, but now they are changing their minds or their ways. And I will tell you about some of the discoveries at the end inshallah. Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran which Allah Allah Kusama will absorb I will either tell Allah Allah come to school, so he's telling us about his bounties, the bounty of you know the ability to hear heating, physical Faculty of heating and seeing

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

Also,

00:15:01--> 00:15:44

one last hunter that talks about effetre in the Quran is Gemma. But for those who add plural, the singular word is for ad and for ad is the inner heart. La La competish Kuru Allah subhanaw taala said that perhaps you would be grateful. So these are one of the boundaries of Allah subhana wa Taala that we have to observe in our life. Last time we said, you know, get closer to Allah subhanaw taala by doing two things. We talked about this right, we need to observe, continue observing the boundaries of Allah subhanaw taala our life, this is one thing and also we should know our Lord our Creator, by studying his names and attributes. The more we have knowledge about a Lost Planet,

00:15:44--> 00:15:57

Allah, the more we get closer to our Creator, and we cultivate our relationship with him. Actually, this process the whole process of teskey is about cultivating our relationship with our Creator.

00:15:59--> 00:16:18

And in sorbitol has Allah subhanaw taala told us about the functions and the duties of these three physical faculties the heating and the ceiling and also our eyes and our hearts. So he said Flm as you fill out the fetcher Khun Ella home, Kowloon Yaki Luna, do

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

you think when Angela talks about Emily tilaka

00:16:24--> 00:16:34

is talking about the brain but the lowest quintile is talking about the kulu Flm you see refill artifort akuna hum khulumani Aki Luna via yaquina Bay and if they understand

00:16:35--> 00:17:20

then yes merona vm fame to her la Tamil absorbed, well, I can Tamil kulu Latif is sudo so Allah subhanaw taala said, so have the inner travelled through the land and have hearts by which to reason or ease by which to eat to hear. So now when we travel through the land here, one we have to look at the other signs of creation in this universe. This is a bad even if you're traveling to Banff with your family, taking your family to beleive and he looked at this mountains and the beauty of this nature. Try to have this intention in your heart This is a bad this is an act of very bad, you'll be rewarded for that and illustrator will appreciate that. Because this is the double this is a bad

00:17:20--> 00:17:43

that the Buddha coffeehouse associate. This is how we know Allah subhana wa tada we know the power of Allah. In the lodge me Tony abou Gemma we should Allah is beautiful and he loves to beauty look at the beauty of this universe. And he discovered how beautiful is Allah subhana wa tada and how powerful is Anahata so here is blaming the kuffaar that they travel throughout the land

00:17:44--> 00:18:29

and the past by the size of a law the size of creation, but they don't pay attention because their hearts are sealed. Because Allah Allah said Flm Yusuf will artifact akuna no Colonia Kelowna via you know so and have hearts by which to reason to reach some conclusions. Because if their hearts are sound, they will they will this the you know these observations, observing what the science of philosophy can tell will only increase their Eman and their taqwa and cultivate the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. They find themselves that just remembering the last parrot and automatically without a planning to do Vickery will be just remembering the last petrodollar because

00:18:29--> 00:18:38

you are looking at the signs of a las panatela in this universe. So last night, Allah is blaming the kuffar here, and we shouldn't follow their ways we shouldn't follow their path.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

And then he said that the end of this ayah for Indeed, it is not the eyes that are blinded

00:18:46--> 00:19:03

but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts. So the hearts are not working very well. This point Gianni the hearts do not get any the last print Allah said, you know, at this point that the hearts do not get the divine guidance.

00:19:04--> 00:19:49

Even though their their physical abilities of seeing and hearing are fine, everything is fine. Everything is working well. You know, they have the ability to see they have the ability to hear, but their hearts are not working properly. And that's why they're not they're not believing in Allah Subhana Allah to add. So their ability of hearing and seeing and not will not be useful allowed to Allah Allah. Well, they can rule them out on a guru and our scholars say they have a statement they said, well the veteran can be he America to LA wa Viva. Well, these are two calbee so the primary function of the heart is to know Allah its creator. This is something that was repeated by chef slam

00:19:49--> 00:19:55

Chinese Thai Rahmatullah alley, and many scholars who said well, the for to the main function

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

to many physicians and doctors is pumping blood in the body right?

00:20:01--> 00:20:06

With our URL, am I saying the primary function of the heart is to know its create?

00:20:08--> 00:20:51

And they said our odema they said any human organ is described to be sound and intact, if it perfect, it performs his duties, you know, in a perfect way, if it does not, it is described as in em impaired and or damaged body part. Right It is a damaged body part is not doing its, its work, it's not doing its function properly. So now the heart if the heart is not working very well, if the heart does not recognize its creator, because it is sick, then it is. We know that this heart is full of diseases, and it is described as called married or called, or a sick heart.

00:20:52--> 00:21:30

And that's why the Buddha said, you know, those who purified their hearts from matters of confusion and matters of own desires, confusion, matters of confusion, they are shovelhead their hearts are full of chahat they have too many questions in their hearts, they're not able to answer them. They're confused. They're not able to get the right answers from the Quran and the Sunnah. And the continue, some of them might continue to be confused, even though they come to the masjid some of them and praise them. How would the Muslim community we've talked to them you have to you feel that they have too many confusions in their minds in their hearts.

00:21:32--> 00:22:05

So these are Chabot hat, we don't have yaqeen they have some doubts about the last panel at the high level the existence of Allah see we have this problem in the community, not talking about before I'm talking about Muslims, young Muslims growing up in this community. There is a scholar who said, you know, one time I received a mother in my office, and she said and I told him you know, my my, my daughter now is saying that she doesn't believe in Allah subhanaw taala anymore. She was born in a Muslim family.

00:22:06--> 00:22:47

And the header his daughter was waiting in the car outside three told her to come invite your daughter to come in in the office. And he had a discussion with this lady, young lady and why why do you you don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala I believe in science. She's been studying science for seven years, three years in high school for USA University. Now she's convinced that God does not exist. She was born in a Muslim family. But here the question that the man told her you know how time how much time you spent studying the deen of Allah soprano Donna religion. Now because you studied science, you came up with this conclusion. But if you are comparing between two things,

00:22:48--> 00:23:07

it is not fair that you study only one side of the story. And you don't spend time to study the other views or the other, you know the other side of the story. So he gave her a translation of the Quran and some other books. within few weeks. She called back and she said Problem solved.

00:23:08--> 00:23:47

She felt good. And she came back to the deen philosopher Hannah dad. So as I said before, and all the time we said the ignorance is our number one enemy. They have their own remedies D said those who purify their hearts from matters of confusion, a shovel head and shower, shower desires, shower desires and you know what I'm talking about? Yeah, what about you know, looking at the other gender, you know, love for money, excessive love for money, excessive love for fame for status in the community, there are many desires. So those who purified this heart their hearts are cold and Musleh soon,

00:23:48--> 00:24:11

not soon, and hopefully soon they are the sincere people kasara under the lamp mcculley soon mukalla soon they are the chosen few. The Chosen servants of Allah subhana wa adad so the ruler the said, you know like a magnet a magnet Allah Allah says that shaitan has lost has completely lost hope in and McCullough soon.

00:24:12--> 00:24:37

He lost hope hope in them. I can do nothing to them. And that's why I lost my dad. Duquesne has a beautiful statement. He said for Cabo de la cabeza. Rado, final Java the Heroku Heroku takemura he did a session shaytaan Amina Muslim saying hi to Hamas at kulu kulu whom lira

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

we are marry him from Quran in the Quran Allah telesat car fob rezeki Kayla Vienna home ash Marine, la vida caminho flossing so of course shaitan made an exception look I am happy to lie said in the statement said when the heart is attached to something and it wants it

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

Hearts wants this thing, then the bodily parts will move towards achieving this goal. Because we said the heart is the king, right? So the king will send this to his troops to achieve this goal to get it right to get what he wants.

00:25:16--> 00:25:54

And he said, That's why shaytan has completely lost hope in the chosen servants of our last panel to add because their hearts are purified. And they only want the pleasure of their Lord with their deeds. That's why at least in the Quran said, If Allah subhanaw taala told us about his statement, at least said by your might, February Exotica, I will surely mislead them all, except among them your chosen servants. So he made an oath that he will mislead all children of Adam, except the moolah soon, those who purify this their hearts, as I said, for the sake of Allah subhana wa.

00:25:56--> 00:26:46

And again, and again, this does not mean that, you know, I'm not trying to be an extremist here. This does not mean that we, you know, abandoned we completely abandoned this worldly life. we abandon our families abandon our business, or burden our studies, our you know, our schooling, this is not what we mean here. Here again, you know, the and as I said, you know, before we talked about it, this is not the path of Mohammed Salah Lao Allison, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a balanced life, his life was very balanced. He was a teacher, he was a husband, he was a father. He was a military leader, he was a political leader. He was a statement, he was everything that was

00:26:46--> 00:27:29

said and he was able to make this balance in his life. But this, you know, this al mukalla zone, those who are the chosen servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala, they have a different path. So they still love their families, they go to school, and they do business, the, the the, the take care of their wealth, their education, but their hearts are focused towards pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And, you know, using all the resources, as I said, to seek that noble newness with their Creator and that's why last winter I said worked every female attacker now after talking about qarun if Terry if Jerry monitor seek through that which Allah has given you, everything that Allah has

00:27:29--> 00:28:02

given you, even with feed your child feels your child, okay, you are a father, you're doing your job, you're doing your job as a father. You can have a good intention. Yeah, Allah Allah attersee bajada llama inaccuracy. ohada indeck wala I'm seeking your reward by doing this by feeding your child taking care of your wife, taking care of your children. Anything you do in your life, if you just change your intention, do it for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada then everything will be fine in your life.

00:28:03--> 00:28:09

It will be do everything will be like in a bad day in your life, you'd be like worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time.

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

Type the conclusion yet one.

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

The heart which is mentioned in many ayat as in the Quran, it is mentioned as an oral fluid.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

And in the plural form is lF ADA. I'll call it the plural form is

00:28:33--> 00:28:53

L kulu. a loop this is the third a third term and the plural form of the loop is an LDAP. So our odema are saying this cult is the center of reasoning, intentions, decisions, understanding a learning and all related matters.

00:28:54--> 00:29:42

This is the conclusion of all like most of them have assumed like there is a schema maybe there is a consensus about this decision that the heart is the center of all intellectual activities in our in our system. And that's why last Friday I said Well, I think Allah had Baba eleiko the manner was a Yahoo ficolo become a las panatela has made you talking about his name. But he was stood upon the believers like in the lahab Baba in a coma Eman. Allah made you to love Amen. was a Yahoo philippou become Allah has beautified this email in your hearts. You love to be movement and to Quran. You hate to be a cafe to go to Cofer again. This is one of the signs of Eman. If you have this in your

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

heart, you will find most likely the sweetness of Eman

00:29:46--> 00:29:52

And Allah heartily said about the kuffaar localu Boone, Neff Kahuna beha.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

Live sirona via they have hearts they cannot you know understand

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

Use them to understand they have heart, but they are there these there is no understanding there is no access then the Hydra does not find access to their hearts, so their hearts are sealed. Now Sharona, we have to see the signs. Sometimes you get amazed will lie when I listened to some scientists, sometimes you said you listen to some programs by NASA. And you see them, I see them like they are fascinated. They are really impressed by the beauty in this in this universe.

00:30:35--> 00:30:50

And they will be talking about galaxies and planets and everything, they often is fascinated, but they are missing the most important thing in their life. They need to go beyond that. And make a conclusion about who created this

00:30:51--> 00:31:03

and try to find solve this problem because this is the most important problem in their life as a human being. One day we will leave this world what will happen after that you have to answer

00:31:05--> 00:31:37

to Allah subhanho wa Taala because he got this knowledge. They were they had the ability now they are sending space telescopes, navigating the space and coming up, coming back with beautiful images about other galaxies and other planets and other parts of this universe. And they are fascinated. But you don't see many of them talking about God about the creation, you know. So people are confused, they are misguided by science is not always helpful to Allah.

00:31:39--> 00:32:22

Allah subhanaw taala said when you mean belay, yeah, the callback. And whoever believes in Allah, Allah, Allah will guide his heart will guide his heart. So this is around 180 is in the Quran. 132 verses in the Quran use the word called, called the term calm. And the other 50 around 51, maybe 148 verses in the Quran use the term look ahead. And all of them meant this piece of flesh that is inside our bodies. And Allah subhanaw taala meant that this is the place the center of understanding and below to Allah Allah.

00:32:27--> 00:32:35

Now we can conclude that these functions of the heart mentioned in the Quran means that the heart has its own form of intelligence.

00:32:36--> 00:33:21

And as I said, for many centuries, physicians have been restricting the function of the human heart to the main process of pumping blood, in the, in the, in the in the body in the human body. And now they said science has recently discovered that the human heart is a sentient organ. And that means having the power of perception and consciousness, the human heart, like the human brain, and it has its own form of intelligence. And they also concluded that it has been proven that the human heart that influence the brain's thinking capacity. This is something new in the 90s in the late 90s. And the first in the beginning of the 21st century.

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

It has also been proven that the human heart communicates with both the brain and the rest of the body.

00:33:31--> 00:33:38

And they recently discovered that what is called the heart brain synchronization, because it's hard to brain synchronization

00:33:40--> 00:34:07

or what is called cardiac coherence. So these terms are used by some scientists. And he said that this has become a scientific fact we're allowed to and this is what Dr. Zululand nightjar. He is someone who is specialized in the field of scientific miracles in the Quran and the Sunnah. He said in one of his articles about the human heart, he wrote an article about the human heart in the glories Quran.

00:34:09--> 00:34:30

So information about these discoveries and research can be found in a book. The hearts code, there is a book called The hearts code written by Paul Piersall, I think, and there is another lady she's a cardiologist. She's a physician. Her name is Dr. Mimi guarnieri and she wrote a book it's called the the heart speaks.

00:34:32--> 00:34:59

Now this book has proven the first book has proven that the heart is the mastermind of thought and behavior. And this is what exactly what the Quran is saying has revealed 14 centuries ago. This is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam said 14 centuries ago, because he said in the field can be in a visitor de la Mola, either solo hats, aloha algester do cooler, worry they're faster that said they'll just say to Kolaveri there is a piece of flesh in

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

The body if it is sound, whole body sound, if it is corrupted the whole body is corrupted. And he will remember it when the i in solid facilites and re him a Latina feel fit with he unfussy him, whatever you know help. This is a promise that was made by Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah, Allah said in this promise, we will show them our signs in the horizons and within themselves,

00:35:29--> 00:35:41

our signs the signs of His power, His creation, we see them in ourselves, which is unknown hack until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth.

00:35:42--> 00:36:11

And in in Amazon website, where they talked about, you know, the book The heart speaks in the introduction, Introduction says, I will read it to you. They said in the heart speaks Dr. Mimi guarnieri reveals groundbreaking new research that the heart is a multi layered, complex organ, possessing intelligence, memory and decision making abilities independent from the mind.

00:36:12--> 00:36:17

And that healing the hearts can have more to do with healing the mind and soul than we ever knew.

00:36:18--> 00:37:06

So this is what this doctor has, you know, found out and discovered, but even if no one talked about it, when we go back to the ayat, you know, if the Quran we know that the heart is the mastermind of thought and behavior in our system and that what this is another reason that's why we have why we have to take care of our hearts and purify our hearts. So if you purify our hearts everything will be will be fine in our life. Now knowing the importance of the heart in the process of hidayah and guidance and fam and understanding a learning Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to frequently set yarmulke liberal colusa bit scalby Allah de Nick so Rasul Allah says Allah and His

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

mini Malika they allow alarm said can

00:37:09--> 00:37:49

you kill and Jaco yukihiro yan he used to frequently say this to a yarmulke level Kuru, a bit calvia Allah Dini. This Hadith is say so alternatives of the hearts keep my heart firm on your religion. That was the door for sola Selim. And he used to say it all the time. NSR the Allah I know, spent around 10 years with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he knows Yanni he was familiar with his habit, Allah salatu salam with the sooner he used to serve him, he was a young person. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, also La Silla made for him.

00:37:51--> 00:38:38

He asked las panatela to bless his wealth and his family and his his life. And this would happen he lived till the age of 96. He moved around to the city of Basra he had a big family and he was wealthy, and his life was blessed and nomadic, but of the Allahu anhu. He, he was, as I said, servant, the servant of Rasulullah sallallahu ariosa. But this to our what is amazing about this, too, is that we were talking about the Messenger of Allah, the final messenger. And we know that Allah subhana wa sama, whom in Aqaba, Allah Subhana. Allah has blessed him with made him infallible. He doesn't make mistakes, he doesn't commit sins, right? And allows him to Allah has forgiven all

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

his sins, the previous sins in the coming sins and we'll talk about sins when we mentioned sins in the life of Rasul Allah says, Allah, we usually talk about mistakes, you know, but the last 20 Allah has forgiven all his mistakes. And he's the final messenger Allah subhanaw taala promised him and mccammon Mahmoud on the Day of Judgment. He could have said the Annie, it's impossible that the last pantalla will misguide my heart.

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

Just think about the psychology of our messenger here.

00:39:07--> 00:39:17

You know, if someone was in his place, he would say I'm the messenger final messenger to this ummah. So it's difficult to believe it's difficult to imagine that the law would misguide his heart

00:39:18--> 00:39:27

and allow him to go astray, to be misguided. And yet, the Messenger of Allah did not want to feel safe.

00:39:28--> 00:39:47

Because he knows that this is a very dangerous matter when the heart is changed, the person could be misguided. And that's why we see sometimes people on the straight path to endow donating money, praying the massage in the reading, and suddenly the person is changed.

00:39:48--> 00:40:00

Or someone with a long beard and giving halaqaat and lectures in some countries now. And they're supporting dictators, dictators who are killing their people. They're all people in the street throw

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

people in jail with 1000s 1000s in jail being tortured and killed. And this man is supporting the dictator said he is the man we have to vote for him. Like what's happening in Egypt Nowadays, there are people, religious people who are behind the dictator, the new dictator.

00:40:17--> 00:40:22

It's amazing. So we look at them, we see what's going on what's wrong with them.

00:40:24--> 00:40:32

Many Roma have criticized them and they told them you have to make Toba and come back change your way and everything but nothing has changed.

00:40:33--> 00:41:21

For here, you know the importance of this illegal coup submit fluvanna Allah DNS so you have to show your need to Allah subhana wa Taala don't become proud of yourself. That you know I can do things and I have enough skills and because there are people who do some hotel, do some programs, hula and then it gets to your head. And the forget, forget that everything in your life is from Allah subhanaw taala and we might take another path. So we have to remind ourselves all the time and remind our brothers come down Brother, come down sister, everything in your life is from Allah, give the credit to your Creator. Don't give credit to yourself, and you will be in the safe side. If you

00:41:21--> 00:41:45

always give credit to Allah subhana wa Not in front of people, to show them that you are humble. No, between yourself is between you and Allah. When you are alone, think about it. That without the help of Allah, I cannot achieve anything. Oh Allah, I'm in need of your help in every moment. With every breath, I'm in need of your help your support your protection.

00:41:47--> 00:42:22

And then you will be in the safe side because this is called the lifted car, showing your poverty and your need to Allah subhanaw taala that tie in said this is the best way you can deal with the last panel that is the best way you can strengthen your relationship with Allah. Because Allah subhanaw taala wants you to know your status in this dunya He wants you to know your Creator, and you know yourself and you know other people so you can have a balanced Islamic life. you organize your relationship, you manage your relationship with Allah, manage your relationship with yourself, manage your relationship with the rest of people, and everything will be balanced in your life,

00:42:22--> 00:42:59

you'll be a good Muslim. And you have this happiness that people are looking for the side that comes from inside. It doesn't come from wealth doesn't come from status doesn't come from your degree or passport. It doesn't come from the language you speak. The tribe you belong to. It comes from inside. When your heart knows Allah subhanaw taala then it will be happy. You will enjoy this relationship with your Creator Salas Connaughton and Angelina Minghella. We have maybe 10 minutes we'll have before then. So we can, we can if you have questions we can we can talk we can discuss, I think you have now

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

it was translated as inner, inner heart, the forehead, but basically they are the same.

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

will allow Tyler

00:43:15--> 00:43:18

shuba is matter of confusion when someone is confused.

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

Yeah, shadow is the desire.

00:43:24--> 00:43:51

shadow is desire, love for something desire for something for chuva is is it has to do with you know matters of ailment, knowledge, lack of your keen lack of certainty lack of when someone has many doubts in his in his heart, about the deen for example about the message the mission of Prophet Mohammed Salim about Allah, this universe and he's not, he's not settled.

00:43:52--> 00:44:34

He doesn't feel comfortable. We still have these questions going on in his mind all the time. So these are super hard, we have to deal with them and we deal with them through knowledge. And should we have to deal with them through taqwa, we develop our taqwa that will reduce the influence of Shahada and our hearts and we reduce the influence of Chabot hat in our hearts through knowledge. But then, the sources of shubo hat in our life could be media, for example, could be very environment that people will live with the subject we study at school, the books we read, there are people who kept reading some books, and then decided to leave Islam and abandon the deen philosophy.

00:44:34--> 00:44:41

Now that I know I mean, some examples are not just, you know, saying this, I know some examples in this community.

00:44:43--> 00:44:54

So how do you deal with that increased knowledge sharing and knowledge in your life? And then you can eat you can eat you have the ability in Sharla to manage these problems. Yes.

00:45:02--> 00:45:03

examples how

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

well you have to work as a security guard.

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

You do you know what they mean?

00:45:18--> 00:45:20

So you have to work as

00:45:22--> 00:45:24

you get it, who can explain that to me

00:45:27--> 00:45:31

You have to work as a security guard 24 hours

00:45:33--> 00:45:34

you have to watch your inner thoughts,

00:45:36--> 00:45:57

inner thoughts, if you watch them all the time, you accept what is good and you reject the bad ones. And you will make any it will reach a time where it will come a time when Allah will make it easy for you. And your heart will be comfortable with good feelings good emotions, for example, an asset for example, I'll give you an example.

00:45:58--> 00:46:10

And when we talk about an example this method will be clear in Sharla talking about hazard destructive jealousy is when you wish that the nightmare that is in the hands of your brother

00:46:11--> 00:46:18

would be removed. You wish that it is removed is a nice car I wish that it is

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

this nice is this nice house is burned.

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

Okay or you feel you don't feel comfortable when you hear news about someone was made some good achievements, especially family members and, and neighbors and you don't see good you don't feel bad, you feel bad about it. Now there is a problem here. There is a bad sign. So you have to watch yourself. This is a very dangerous matter. Allah subhanaw taala does not like has it

00:46:48--> 00:47:13

does not like it. And he doesn't like the people of acid. So what do you do? You cry to Allah, Allah remove this from my heart. I don't want to have acid in my heart. There is another way to do it, you make dua to the same person, for the same person, sorry, you make it for him or for her at the last pantalla increase his wealth, give him the second car, third car, I don't mind.

00:47:15--> 00:47:42

And then you become free. This this emotions will not control you. You earn your freedom because you don't care about their cars. You don't care about their houses, you don't care about their wealth, you become free, free person. Because the freedom comes from here is what you have Islam Jamia and many erdenet they said you know, if you want to have ultimate freedom, you have to work on your heart, when your heart is a free then you have you have the real freedom

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

develop the sense real, the real sense of freedom allowed to Allah. So this is just an example

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

method and there is your self deceit.

00:47:56--> 00:48:01

Another problem is when you feel like you have this sense of self importance

00:48:02--> 00:48:08

and matter no more for example, someone who is going to study the dean philosophy

00:48:09--> 00:48:35

and he would just mess around and study one some I attend some ahaadeeth or he was able to give some speeches and he thinks that he becames he became now that a Llama Llama to Germany. He shared his lamb with Tamia. Now, what he meant was chef It was his time and he's able to give it hours and you know, and and make decisions for the community and for the ummah. And so, I'll give you an example one time, I don't know for sure.

00:48:37--> 00:48:47

Yeah. You don't know the person anyway. So I'll give you this example. This is something that happened to me in UK. I was I was giving a lecture about Ramadan in one of the moustached

00:48:48--> 00:49:18

in Ramadan, preparing how to prepare for Ramadan. And the guy came who is still student in the University of Medina, he studied there for two years he sat down there in front of me and he was angry from the first moment when he entered he was not happy with it with the with the lecture was looking to me in a very weird way. And then the moment I mentioned that aroma Hata it is proven that aroma cassava sprayed 20 rockers in Ramadan

00:49:20--> 00:49:28

because some earlier Maddy said some people not most of the aroma they said the method is very flexible, whether you pray trackers or you pray 20

00:49:29--> 00:49:35

solar cells and used to pray 1320 plus five or 20 plus three, eight plus 311

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

but it is one norm that Omaha has prayed in his message 20 miracles. So there are four narrations about Oman Qatar praying or allowing the Imam in the masjid to pray 20 rockers in the in the during Torah we enjoy Ramadan. Two of them are authentic, two of them. The other two are very weak.

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

So the moment I said this, then he starts screaming in the machine. This is a matter of disagreement between scholars. And great scholars have said the method is very flexible. Yeah, I want to do this or this, it's fine. So there is no need to fight about it when you start screaming and he said, I did the research about it in Medina. I wrote a paper about it and he said, and he may create the big fitna in the machine and after a lot more people will divide it into groups in the master one group talking to him at the end one group talking to me, I don't know what's going on here. What is the sickness I felt like this is I never faced this problem here in Canada, the UK they have a different

00:50:41--> 00:51:21

they have different problems, they have their own problems anyway. And everyone back to that to that message. But the problem is, if you write a paper about something about a matter of fact it doesn't give you the right is screaming the message and shouting the message and creative hypnotist are that the manners of earlier man the manners of tolerate lol sometimes, you know, we see a mistake happening in the message to keep quiet because we don't want to make fitna we've talked to the person individually. You know, we have to seek the better the best ways to make their own but this problem, this problem, this is what happened. But it could have you know,

00:51:23--> 00:51:57

something deep, that is well seated in the heart as it appear in our actions. So if we correct we work on our hearts, we will not face these problems. That is my point here. So self deceit is early age when you think fellas, you become the Atlanta now of the man Mufti of North America. You know after studying a couple of Hadith and this is your job, or Allah subhanaw taala bless you with some fluency and you're able to give good hotel people keep saying good Mashallah good hot Mashallah, good. Holla Holla it gets your head

00:51:59--> 00:52:42

and the best speaker in North America. There are some young people who might face this problem. And now I'm talking about real life examples here now. But what is the solution is go back to the cure the medication of Sharia, the Quran and Sunnah. You know that self deceit is a problem is up is a problem. You have to crush your ego, you have to deal with it because you don't want to have that this will affect your relationship with Allah. It will affect your relationship Allah, Allah subhanaw taala does not want you to behave this way. Allah wants you to know your limitations. And you know his bounty is upon you. If you are eloquent or fluent, this is an error from Allah. So give

00:52:42--> 00:53:31

the credit. Voila. So you deal with this problem. Self deceit. So every every problem has its own, you know, Sharla cues in the Quran and the Sunnah, we might go through some through some examples. In the coming halaqaat, we have maybe two halaqaat we'll deal with the subject, maybe the last one before Amazon will be dedicated to Ramadan fasting, but this is basically the way you deal with this issue. So working as a security guard, you say if you try to watch for these thoughts coming to and they are very quick, they come they know how to sneak to your mind. Shaytan is very good at that. This is his job was USA, and you have to pay attention be very alert, alert. But these thoughts and

00:53:31--> 00:54:13

Allah subhana wa Taala would be very happy with you when he looks at your heart and he finds that these This heart is full of good feelings, good emotions. He loves the higher goodness for everyone. You love your Muslim brothers and sisters, you will be one one person only one of the inhabitants of gender. What is it they're in? There was a Sahabi that lived at Roswell las Esalen, and also Lhasa Salaam used to sit with his companions for three days. He used to tell them one of the inhabited agenda will appear now. One of the people of agenda will appear now. And the same person appeared. same person appeared for three times aberglasney said the love Nam Ross. He said I'm gonna watch

00:54:13--> 00:54:25

this person. So he went to his house and he said I have a dispute a dispute with my father and I need shelter. He said welcome come to my house. I need a shelter for three days. So he found out

00:54:27--> 00:54:48

last he spent with him three days in his house. So he was expecting the person to stand up in the middle of the night and pray the MLA and read Quran and be cry and do tisby and Stefan is that. Now I didn't see anything of this. The only thing is when he wakes up at night he would remember Allah subhanaw taala.

00:54:49--> 00:55:00

And then he at the end of three days he told him the real story. I didn't have problem with my father. But also my sister told us that you are one of the people of gender. This is

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

Great news for this person imagine someone comes to you and said you are using gender

00:55:06--> 00:55:11

imagine so so the he said you know, I don't do these things I

00:55:13--> 00:55:30

assume okay and he said I don't fast. You know days, many days I don't give certified but there is one good thing I think, I think I will go to Jana, because of this. You know this virtue. He said they have nothing, I have nothing I don't go to bed

00:55:32--> 00:56:13

with any crutches or hatred towards towards any Muslim Robin Allah shall follow Covina, Hill and levena Avenue This is the behavior of those who come after the Sahaba Allah springtail I said this in Surah to hash it after he mentioned a ni eight and nine. He mentioned this to have a Mahajan answer he said those who come after them we make it to our to a Lost Planet Allah for forgiveness to forgive those who came before them Sahaba Mahajan answer forgive them and also to remove any hatred and grudges towards the rest of the believers. So if you don't have this problem, your heart is clean. Don't have problem with anyone we know some people who come to the masjid Mashallah they are

00:56:13--> 00:56:36

beautiful brothers. They don't talk to anyone. I mean, this could be maybe some of them socialize and everything but you don't see them creating problems or doing any or hurting anyone Mashallah some there are brothers in the community. So no sometimes I look at them and I feel like Mashallah these people are blessed to live they are blessed. Because there are people who come to the massage and create problems right?

00:56:37--> 00:56:50

Create fitna in the message in the houses of olanzapine, but you see other people coming to the massage and how thing they are friendly with everyone. They're always smiling. You feel like they are good people.

00:56:51--> 00:57:00

And you feel that these people are blessed and they might be engender inshallah, because of these o'clock these manners. So this is something that we have to take care of

00:57:02--> 00:57:16

it and we don't have to be all scholars or direct or wealthy people to give soda cartons aka it's here, work on this, this piece of flesh work on it, and will be one of the happy ones in short alone. The Day of Judgment is akula here
