hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala ashrafi mercy CDM hamadryad he was happy he may

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

zacco La Jolla for coming for the halaqa tonight and

00:00:19--> 00:00:31

as we you have seen maybe the announcement or heard the announcement that we will be talking shortly about purification of the soul, or the path of purification in Islam.

00:00:32--> 00:00:50

And usually in Islam, when we talk about purification, we talk about purification of the soul purification of the heart. We're also talking in the area of finance, purification of the income and purification sometimes of the tongue, the way you communicate with people the way we talk and

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

how to be careful about our language.

00:00:55--> 00:01:33

But in this halaqaat insha, Allah will try to focus on purification of the soul and purification of the heart. And it will be a different way of preparing ourselves for Ramadan. We usually do halaqaat we talk about, you know, physical fasting and we'll talk about it in Sharla, maybe the last Friday before Ramadan, try to do a halaqa about you know, the physical fasting just a reminder for myself and for everyone. But in this four series for halaqaat will try to focus on the purification of the soul in sha Allah related matters.

00:01:34--> 00:01:55

And before we start, I would like to talk about the importance of this subject. In the story of Abraham, Allah, Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala told us that after Ibrahim Ali Salah, and his son is married, completed the building of the Kaaba, we made some beautiful supplications

00:01:56--> 00:02:02

among which is this one, it says Rob banner over ifI him Rasulullah and they were talking about their descendants,

00:02:03--> 00:02:26

about their children, their descendants in the area of Makkah. And this is a proof that Rasulullah Salim is one of the descendants of his married one of the descendants of Ibrahim Ali Sam. So they made this Dora they made a couple of drafts one of them is this that have been over I threw him on a stool and mean him yet to Allah him etica Are you a limo, Alka Tebow Hekmati. Mehta, we use a key him

00:02:27--> 00:03:14

in the kantele, as usual happy. So the said the ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, our Lord sank, sent among them who are them, their descendants, the inhabitants of Mecca, those who will come will stay in Mecca, and we'll grow up there and flourish there. So those who will live in the city of Mecca, they are their descendants sent among them from themselves a messenger who will recite to them the verses. So, this is like a job description for our messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, the first here item is reciting the verses to them, the verses of the book, the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the second item and the request of Abraham and is my teaching them the book

00:03:14--> 00:03:59

is teaching is there is a difference between teaching and reciting and teaching, you recite, you just recite the book but you teach the book you explain the ayat explained the ruling you derive some benefits. So there is a difference between the main recitation and between teaching, teaching them the book and the Wisdom, the wisdom when the wisdom is mentioned in the Quran, it is the Center for pseudo lies. So this is the second item in their agenda, and then the set and the end purify them. So the mentioned the test skier in the third place was a key him and purify them in the third place in Naka and tell as usual, Hakeem indeed you are the Exalted in Might the wise subhanho wa

00:03:59--> 00:04:47

Taala. So that was this door, the door of these two great prophets, Ibrahim Ali Salaam, and is married la Salaam, as you see the place teskey which is self purification, or purification of the heart or purification of the soul, in the third place. Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in different ayat, three is another three ayat in Surah, to Juma in Surah, t Emraan. In surah, Al Baqarah itself because this direct came in Surah tillbaka I want 29 but it is different. In Surah Al Baqarah 151 different in earlier Emraan, a different era in Joomla, similar to Joomla in these three servers. last panel with Anna told us that he responded,

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

or he answered the door of Ibrahim and he's married and he Salah by sending a prophet a great prophet great messenger among the descendant of Rahim who is Mohammed Salah Lahore. Alia was

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

But why he told us this, he changed. He introduced the last panatela introduced some changes in the in the job description that was given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the mission that was given to Mohammed Salah liason so in the three as Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the different order. So in Surah Al Baqarah messianic gamma or sending a fecal Rasulullah and minko talking to the people to the Arabs, the people of Mecca camera or send our sulan cameras and a few camera siouxland minko yet you are a Kumbaya Tina was a key come. So let's place to test skier in the second place. Where to Aleykum

00:05:41--> 00:06:30

yet your RA Tina is Akiko multitap or hc Mata Luca, Madame takuna, Charlie moon. So just as we have sent among you a messenger from yourselves, reciting to you our vs. Number one, purifying you. So purification now came in the second place, and then teaching you the book and the Wisdom and teaching you that we achieved which you didn't know before. So now the question is, why did Allah subhanaw taala place the test here in the second place, recitation of the versus purification of the soul. And then the third item is, you know, teaching the teaching of the book, and the wisdom, the answer is clearly at one, Allah subhana wa Taala wanted wants us to grasp to clearly understand the

00:06:30--> 00:07:14

importance of this matter of teskey teskey to nefs, the science of purification or self purification. For us, it is a self purification. But for them, the Sahaba it is, you know the job of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they have to do something about it. But it was in the beginning, it was mainly his job. Le Salatu was Salam. And that's why, you know, from this, you understand the difference between the Sahaba and later generations. These people lived with a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we were learning under him and his Salatu was Salam. They had the blessing to meet him and talk to him. And you know, and watch him doing things listen to his

00:07:15--> 00:07:47

message to his statements. So there is a big difference between the Sahaba of the Allah and him and the rest of the people. Now why this test key is important. The router may be said if this this key is not there, then our salad will have no taste our Salah to our a bear that will have no spirit, our cat will have no spirits or fasting will have no spirits. It is the essence of this river that our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala comes before we stand up and we do our Salat

00:07:49--> 00:08:31

our Salah to the quality of our Silla, Salah depends on our connection with Allah, our relationship with Allah subhana wa, and the owner we said, our understanding of the verses of Allah that's why sometimes you see different understandings, different opinions, different modalities, different methodologies, and sometimes different ways different sects. They said our understanding of the verses of Allah subhana wa Taala could be distorted. If the this purification if this test here is not there. So it is important, and it is a journey towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and the next life, it is a spiritual journey, not a physical one.

00:08:33--> 00:08:59

It's not something that you do with your hands or with your feet is something that you do with your heart. It's a spiritual journey, and not a physical one. And they say everyone goes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala after their death, this is very important. This is a very beautiful saying this and everyone goes back to Allah subhanaw taala after their death, but a wise and a pious man goes back to Allah before his death.

00:09:02--> 00:09:12

So the moment goes back to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah through this journey, before he meets his creator, and that's why you call fi 50 l kulu.

00:09:13--> 00:09:40

You call Arsalan? Illa Allah de aza hit Avi le de Kok sakala Allah who you're stuck with Mr. Easy. Carla Hola, como la cama surfactin Carla, Lisa has an emerald with copper enemas effort. Faris Neff seca we hope to attain yes oh look, Mr. suka. So a man came to as a head of it, but who had some knowledge about the physical fuku a fifth of the hearts

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

he came to him his name is violet the cop came to him from you know, he made he actually he came to him from a different area, different place. So he took a travel. He made the travel he traveled to see to meet a variety dakak to benefit from his knowledge

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

And from his fifth, fifth understanding you, not fifth about fifth Salatu Reza capitola his understanding about the matters of the deen in general. So he said what he made he said though he was yearning to his admonitions to his my wife. So when he met him he said Katara to la cama Safford and I have made a trip to meet you.

00:10:24--> 00:11:08

I made a long distance before it came, you know, to see you here and benefit from your knowledge. So Abu Ali, what was the answer of Bali he said Lisa had an AMA with kata Envisat. The matter is not about traveling. It's not making you know, traveling long distances. This is not the point. He said fair enough. Second, you have to attain, you know, stay away from your desires from your knifes, one one step, you're so lucky and luxottica you will achieve your goals. Stay away from your desires, your nefs and you will achieve your your goals. Now, among the things that show the importance of this test key one, this is something that we might have mentioned before, that Allah subhanho wa

00:11:08--> 00:11:22

Taala and Sora to shrimps. Chapter 91 he made a lot of metal and made 11 oaths, 11 oaths before telling us that could fly hemmens aka habermann desta

00:11:23--> 00:12:07

11 oaths, we know that we are not supposed to make an oath by anything else besides the last panel of data. This is a basic knowledge. But the last Ranaut Allah has made it permissible for himself to make an oath by one of his creation, and in his in this sort of the shrimps, but I have shrimps you want to have the sun and its brightness will come or your Mattila have by the moon and it's as it follows it follows the sun. And then when Harry will either gela and by the day and you know as he chews up the sun's brightness. So these are oaths that our lowest quintile is making, and till Allah subhanaw taala told us for Alhambra, fuzu Raja taqwa after 11 O's Allah subhanaw taala wanted to

00:12:07--> 00:12:18

tell us, but FL Hammond zeca he has succeeded who purified his own self and he has failed, who corrupted his own self. This is the conclusion of this surah

00:12:19--> 00:12:39

This is the conclusion of the Surah Surah two shams, all these oaths to tell us that this is the reality that you have to pay attention to. That the one who has has to purify himself is successful and the one who corrupted himself has has failed us Allah subhanaw taala Cilento and if you

00:12:40--> 00:12:50

and as another surah that we recite in every humor is one in every reader Sula says enemies to recite it almost in every genre is Surah Allah, Allah Subhana Allah said

00:12:51--> 00:13:35

physica will the charisma be for Salah cut f Lucha Lucha is in the past Monday, what Allah subhanaw taala uses the past, he wants to tell us that this is a reality. This is a fact. This is the this is what will happen. This is a rule that doesn't change the law. Herman Mendoza he has certainly 60 succeeded, who purified him his own self. Well, that kind of smarter be for salah and he mentioned the name of his Lord and prayed to tell us that you know, remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is part of this process and also praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala is part of this process, the process. The owner also said, you know, we will all realize, you know, the importance of test kiya

00:13:36--> 00:14:20

if we know that Allah subhanaw taala is a pure and he accepts nothing What is bad what is pure, and this is well established in the book of Allah subhanaw taala in the Sunnah of His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam because why this agenda is pure, and the believers in the agenda will have a perfect life. You know, perfect life. We mean it, the roadmap, I mean, it's Allah subhanaw taala meant it this way to be this life in general will be perfect. No sickness, no hatred, no disputes. No people, even people don't use washrooms there. No one gets sick. I mean, everything is perfect. Everything is a pure engine. But the roadmap he said based on some ayat and ahaadeeth that

00:14:20--> 00:14:51

those who will deserve to enter gender have to purify themselves. No one will enter agenda if he has still have some problems in his heart. If his soul is not purified, then he's not ready to get to go into agenda. The agenda for me, and what is the proof in Surah Zuma method and the angels will greet those who will be coming to gender entering the agenda, they will tell themselves on a coffee table.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

This is the truth table tomorrow at Hulu ha Holly Dean. So the angels will tell those who are coming about you

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

The paradise the character of Paradise, we will call the PHP upon you trip to Rome you have become pure,

00:15:08--> 00:15:17

fit Hulu holiday and go into the agenda abiding there and eternally staying there foreverness Allah subhana wa tada and inshallah allegion.

00:15:19--> 00:15:33

Now what is the nature of this journey? Now we talked about the importance there are some other proofs about the importance of this journey about this process of self purification. Now, what is the nature of this thing, test key?

00:15:34--> 00:16:18

We need to know that now what we'll be doing when we do the scale one, what do we need to do? So the ruler Matthew said it is a journey of Masada, and it is a journey of Mahatma Masada and you must struggle with with applause of shaitan with his devices with his you know his strategies, you should know his tools. You should be aware of his discouragement of his invitation to failure invitation to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. You have to know his tricks. That is he's your enemy. And you are doing Mujahideen against to defeat his ploys to defeat his attacks. And that is your duty as a servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the essence of your duty actually, if you wake up, if

00:16:18--> 00:16:39

you don't wake up from first most likely shaitan has invited you not to wake up, he told you still have time. Sleep, don't worry about it. You still have time, one hour and a half before shuru. And then you will end up waking up at eight o'clock or nine o'clock. So most likely he It was his invitation was part of the part of what happened.

00:16:41--> 00:16:55

And the roadmap he said it is a journey of Mahadeva Malala in Arabic who says Oliver Oliver who our caliber Fudan fula, Sudan and Howard a column in Houma and jezina, lacquerware, Colorado, they said Eonni so on so

00:16:56--> 00:17:39

we do move on with so and so if each one of them try to defeat the other one, and keep him under control. So this is what you do, actually, with shaitan. You do this sort of move, Oliver, you know, because what, if you remember keep remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala you will keep him under control. That's why he's called alpha Nestle was worse. He's called a finance and it was worse it was worse because he whispers into the minds and the hearts of human beings. And I'm condensing the nose, the wine who you know he would leave stay away or no he will stop his Westwater. When you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:41--> 00:18:05

So it is a journey of an active struggle you want you to go to Hellfire with him. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has chosen for you a different path, which is the path of test kiya and this path will take you to agenda. But the roadmap he said before you awaken to the true purpose of your life. Before you awaken the forces of spiritual or the spiritual forces within yourself.

00:18:06--> 00:18:42

Before you start this journey, most likely they shaytan shaitan has done some damage to your fitrah what is the fitrah is your disposition to how you to who you are Carlita, Buddha Islam with our terrible enemy, your inherent disposition to accept a las panatela as your Lord and follow his path, or which is the upright and natural state of the human soul. And we call it the fitrah and Allah Subhana. Allah has used this term in the Quran. So the ruler must be said, the environment actually not only shaytaan the environment might have done some damage to

00:18:43--> 00:19:30

their parenting and family influences might have shaped your personality in ways that are not pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. And shaytan himself might have done some damage to your personality, he might have invited you to believe in falsehood instead of believing in the truth. He might have invited you to adopt a methodology or philosophy to be a member of certain sect or a group or a party or political party, wasting your time in doing things that will not benefit you on the Day of Judgment instead of you know, spending your time in the service of your Creator, your Creator, your salvation, depends on this service on this connection with your Creator. What is the

00:19:30--> 00:19:57

delille the owner Matthew said there's a famous Hadith in Sahih Bukhari Muslim Rasulullah Salim in this hadith said that Mammon mo luden illa where you lead to al al fitrah. Forever who you have with any Iranian image he said he came to LA to come I according to Mr. Salim Kumar tintagel Bahama to Bahamut and Gemma has assumed FEMA Jetta hasn't had enough Moses will Bukhari Muslim. So every child will be born on the fitrah

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

this natural state

00:20:00--> 00:20:48

of this of his soul. So every child who is we will be born in the fitrah. So his parents will turn him into a Jew or a Christian or a Mason. Why? Why Why did not our soul as a synonym not mentioned he did not mention that Islam he mentioned only Christianity and Judaism and Meijin ism as you see here, why did he mentioned these three religions he did not mention Islam because Islam isn't fit. Because he is born with this ability or this desire or this no capability to accept a las panatela as his Lord and follow his path. So he said and also Lhasa Selim gave us in this hadith an example as an animal an animal produces a young perfect animal

00:20:49--> 00:21:38

held to his soon FM in Jeddah. Do you see any part of its body amputated? You see a perfect you know, young animal in front of you. So this is the way you know every human being is is is born. Every human soul is innocent is born without sins. And this is unlike what the Christians believe they believe that every human being a sinful and the way of salvation is to believe in sacrifice of Jesus or Isa Ali Salaam that is their you know their method or their Deen their Deen actually is based on this concept, that concept of salvation through believing in the sacrifices of irisa alehissalaam but in Islam we believe that every human soul is born without since every he newly born

00:21:38--> 00:22:27

baby is born is an innocent soul. But you know what, what happened is the environment, the family, the environment or shaitan himself all these you know all these factors might have an impact on our personalities in a different Hadith Rasulullah Sallam said, Your we haven't had anything that we saw Selim and Elijah had is good to see you who loafie Have you ever had in the HELOC to anybody who never could loan cologne? We're in the home At home shopping fishtail at home and Dini Muhammad Allah. Allah, Allah wa Amara to Manjushri qubee madam Uzi, his whole fan and haven't had ifisa Muslim and it is found in other sources. So in this hadith Rasul Allah says, lm said, narrating what

00:22:27--> 00:22:47

Allah said it is a hadith bootsy is different than a regular Hadith. So Allah subhanaw taala said here I have created all my servants upon the religion of tawheed. And that's why the correct opinion regarding the young people are the children of the q4. If the die at a younger age, they will be in gender.

00:22:48--> 00:23:31

He will be in gender there are some people who said no, they will follow their parents. He will be in Hellfire and a group of people said we don't have an opinion. We couldn't make a conclusion a third of scholars group of scholars, they said in gender There is no doubt that these young people who are the young people of course from families, Christian or non Muslim families, if they die at a younger age before the reach they reach the age of puberty, they are not macula phone, they will be in gender. And this is the delete the last patellae saying Amy Hello to everybody who never occurred to him. He said I have created all my servants, all my servants. So all babies are on this natural

00:23:31--> 00:24:15

state of the human soul. And we die at this age they will be in Jannah and there is a heavy that Rasulullah saw Salem in the during the journey for Israel Mirage Ibrahim Ali celeb was surrounded with a group of children and he was asked about these children he said Muslim children and Muslim children belong to Allah. So in this Hadith, last pet Allah said Hadith could you see I have created all my servants upon the true religion of Islam, then the devil's came to them and lead them astray from their true religion. And I'll mention two examples for you now. We made unlawful to people that which I had made lawful for them any harmonium Mahela hula Hello in the head if he didn't mention

00:24:15--> 00:24:55

the opposite, that he made Hannan for them what Allah subhanaw taala made haram for them. But it is obvious It is obvious because this is the job of shaitan if something is Helen will tell you it's Haram. If something is haram, he will tell you it's Helen and he will invite you to do it. But the head he did not mention the second part but it is obvious and it is there. And then said Allah subhanaw taala or the prophet SAW Selim narrating what Allah subhanaw taala meant and said, We commanded them to associate we shouldn't say Allah said because it's not Quran. The meaning is from Allah. But the words came from Rasulullah saw Selim This is the nature of Hadith go to see but an

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

akula fill Hadith we may or we hanabi while narrating what Allah subhana wa

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Allah. Anyway, this is a headquarters. So they commanded them to associate in worship with me that which I had sent down no authority and Amanda moves up. So can we have two examples? famous example in the history of humanity? The story of the people of New La Silla. There was 1000 years 1000 years between Adam and new people were following the Dean of tawheed. So Allah subhanaw taala sent Adam was the Dean of tawheed with Islam. Okay, and then the children of Adam used to worship Allah subhanaw taala no shirk took place at that time for 1000 tears. And then when, when we got when we went to when the people of New

00:25:43--> 00:26:05

at the time of New Holland Salim, were new, actually Ali Salaam invited them to leave the worship of these five idols. What is the story of these five idols? They are five pious people who used to live with these people, five pious people shaitan came to these people after he passed away, said how about if you make statues?

00:26:06--> 00:26:22

No of these people. And then when you look at them, you remember they're a bear that their commitment, their religious commitment, you remember the relationship with Allah, and then you'll be motivated, look at the trick, you will be motivated to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:26:23--> 00:27:07

And they listen to shaitan I don't know if he came to them in a in the shape of a human being, or it was a West worser Allah to Allah Allah, but the listen to shaytan and they build this five searches. The people who build those statues, they know they know, they knew that these are statues of human beings and they are not allowed to worship them. And he continued worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. But after the first generation has gone, then the second generation forgot about, you know, the real the nature of these statutes or the story of these real stories, these statues, and they started what worshipping them. This is how schilke started in the history of humanity. Another story, the

00:27:07--> 00:27:14

story of American Ohio whose I am a new hire Jose was one of the leaders in the area of Makkah

00:27:15--> 00:27:59

varies. There are many generations between Ibrahim alayhis salam and Rasul Allah. Most of them used to follow believing to heat and follow the Dean of Ibrahim, they used to follow the dean forebrain, which means the Kaaba was dedicated for the worship of one God, before this man came to amoureux, Ohio Jose, Jose. So there was no there were no idols surrounding the Kaaba that time before this man came. And the people in the area of Makkah used to worship Allah for the deen of Abraham and he's married. This guy made the trip. He was a leader among his people. He was known for his religious commitment for charity, he was charitable, he was respected in the community. Pay attention here to

00:27:59--> 00:28:46

following the leaders without proof, following leaders in the community, without proof without a solid proof from Allah from the Quran, or the Sunnah. This man went to Syria, to the area of Russia. And he found that the people there the local people were worshipping idols. And he said these people actually got many prophets and messengers, and they have they are more knowledgeable about the scriptures, and about the religion, the true religion, so they must be doing something right. So he got some idols from the area of Sham, he brought them with him in his caravan. And he placed them in there beside the Kaaba invited his people to worship these idols. And the he believed in him and

00:28:46--> 00:29:37

they accepted his offer. And they started worshipping idols from that day, until Rasulullah Salim came, and the Kaaba was surrounded by 360 idols. So this is the only the history of humanity is a history of a struggle between the forces of tawheed and monotheism and the forces of, you know, evil and shirk, you know, as a leader is shaitan. Now, we as human beings, we are at the center of this battle. We are at the center of this struggle, and there is no doubt that we are all exposed, you know, to the dangers of this struggle, this battle between and happen a battle, and we might be affected within the course of this battle between and happen and whether we'd like to be affected.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

Here comes the importance of this process of test gear. So when we talk about test gear, we are talking about the process of restoring your fitrah we are trying to restore your fitrah when we were born, we were born on the fitrah and we want to purify ourselves and go back to the state of fitrah to the state of purity

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

So that we deserve to go to gender This is the way we we we save ourselves on the Day of Judgment

00:30:08--> 00:30:09


00:30:11--> 00:30:34

So, this is the nature or this is the purpose of this test here to restore our fitrah and and go back to the state of purity now what is the the starting point of this journey? The starting How does it start? Now here blue came Rama to La La gave us some knowledge is a great scholar, one of the students of chef slam teaming

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

and he wrote this, we got this knowledge from his book

00:30:41--> 00:30:47

modalities you Sally Kim and I have here to Habib Medallia Sally key. Talib is a summary of his book someone

00:30:48--> 00:31:38

from Iraqi scholar summarized his book in Arabic. It's a beautiful book and he talks about this matter. So according to Elena Chi m Rama to lay the starting point of this test skier or process starts with something called the Leah Cava. And what is the Leah kata in Arabic is the awakening or the spiritual awakening. And he defined the Leah kata by saying we enhance the Agile calbee lira watching TV and we're up the hill halfling he has used a beautiful language prokaryote Rahmatullah. His language is very fancy. It's a beautiful when he translated, it loses its its charm, its beauty, but that's okay. So based on the definition of time, the whole process starts when the heart is

00:31:38--> 00:31:48

disturbed and amazed. After discovering that is has a slept for a long time, you suddenly discover that you have wasted

00:31:49--> 00:32:33

your life and doing things that are not beneficial. You just wake up. This is the awakening and he calls it aljada. It is this tearing up of the heart from the sleep of heedlessness, the state of heedlessness when someone is rough in Lhasa, Tara said in the Quran Valletta communal halfling fully insane and insalata and decree law and sada Chi doesn't give doesn't fast he doesn't care. This is half law. The half law is a general term that includes many things, roughly heedlessness. So he said it is the stealing out of the heart from the sleep of the heedlessness that is basically the definition of North America to lie. And then he told us our Anwar rehab This is his language

00:32:33--> 00:32:59

knowledge for those who understand Arabic law will be eliminated at an earlier seminar Dr. Wu Fei Allah had to have a tougher ruling. Mr. arafat in minutes we have well an MOU with Teixeira if you have to have this is his language. He said it starts this year kata starts with this light. He said the first light of this spiritual awakening is the realization of the immensity of Allah as gifts and bounties.

00:33:00--> 00:33:27

When you discover that you are, you just suddenly pay attention to the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you appreciate them and you feel like you are blessed. Look at your health, look at your family have healthy children, you have a job, you live in a safe country, you have in a safe city method. For example, you have a nice car that is parked in front of your if your house,

00:33:28--> 00:34:12

your ability to wake up every morning sound and healthy, your ability to make up to wake up for funsies. That's another nightmare that many people do not appreciate. It's another another layer another level loci of distinguishes between the name of this dunya and the name of an era the name of working for fudger and driving and going to the masjid praying in JAMA or praying although the five daily prayers in the Mersey are being able to recite the Quran on a daily basis, or having the ability to remember Allah subhanaw taala having close relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala these are Nam Nam will after he said there is a big difference between this Nam and between, you

00:34:12--> 00:34:53

know the name of this dunya being healthy, having food, having shelter, having clothing, all these are names. And when you pay attention to them, when you start sometimes comparing yourself with the people who are tried, or people who have less people who are unfortunate. This is how it starts. So he said I will Anwar Albion near Mati, your heart will witness is not your mind your heart actually there is a difference between when you're when you start thinking about them. Maybe you don't appreciate this name, but you think about them and you know them intellectually. You know them that you are blessed. But when your heart start, you know, discovering that you are really blessed.

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

When your heart discovers that you are blessed. So here this journey will

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

First, and he said, he said that he will find himself the servant of Allah subhanaw taala the secret of an affair or the secret of Allah subhanaw taala he will find himself overwhelmed by his own sense of inability to count to even count them, let alone thank Allah Subhana Allah to Anna for them all. And he is not able to count them actually, when you think about the number of you know, your eyes, your nose, your your hands, your feet, your body, your health, you are safe you are, you know, you think about many things and you expect to become it becomes very difficult for you to count all this name. And you become hopeless. No, there is no way for you. For me, I can count all this name. And

00:35:46--> 00:36:26

that's why you have to look for doodads that will encompass the thankfulness for all these names. Like my friend saying in the sidebar, in the morning, Aloma might as well have been intermittent overhead, the metallic firming kawada color sherek electronic Alhamdulillah what a shocker if you say this during the morning. So you have offered the thankfulness of that day, and he said Rahmatullah hollybrook I am the secondary realization is his awareness about his own inadequacy or inability to thank Allah a worship Him in the true sense of worship, in the true sense of Riba who can say that I come here to the salat, and my Salah is a pure, I don't think about my business. I

00:36:26--> 00:36:38

don't think about my wife. I don't think about my children. I don't think about my problems. Actually, I have who sure from the time I say Allahu Akbar, till the time I say Salaam Alaikum. Who can make this claim? No.

00:36:39--> 00:37:20

So when you think about your event that you think about your fasting, you think about your shortcomings, you discover that you know, you are surrounded with the blessings of Allah, this is the first ingredient here in this jacoba. In this process of awakening, the first ingredient is you have to watch you observe the name of Allah subhanaw taala around you. And the second process is that you as a human being, you are not able to think Allah subhanaw taala the way he should be synced. This is the second ingredient. If these two is one of them is not there, then there is no yakata there is no awakening. You are still in the in this state of sleepless of heedlessness sorry,

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

heedlessness. So

00:37:24--> 00:37:57

Allah Allah said you know these two realizations make the believer or the seeker of Allah here the seeker of Allah the one who is taking this journey, actualize that derive the beautiful meanings of that beautiful supplications. The karasuma Salim told us told us about say duelist Therefore, he said service master what is the Masters application of all applications for seeking forgiveness. The last part of this says it's all the last part of Buddha cabinet and medically Buddhism be

00:37:58--> 00:38:13

fairly in the hula filled the Nuba inland so the first part Abu Abu lahab Informatica Allah, I admit your bounties upon me, this is the first ingredient. And then the second part

00:38:14--> 00:38:36

will be thembi. And I admit my sins, my shortcomings, this is the second ingredient. So that's why these two I said tie in that's why these two are deserved to be called the master of all applications when seeking forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala because it's included these two ingredients that are needed for our awakening, our spiritual awakening.

00:38:37--> 00:38:50

And then he said parameter lie. He said at this point, you know, the the believer realizes why this application is indeed called the master of all applications for forgiveness. Now.

00:38:55--> 00:39:37

So, basically, he remembers his sin, He said he remembers the sin his mistakes and feels, that he could be in danger facing grave danger and he could be destroyed on account of these sins, this is what he said. So, you have to have the you have to have this feeling that you know if Allah subhanaw taala will take me to account I could be destroyed because of my heedlessness because of my shortcomings because of my have to have this feeling. They said this feeling this feeling will help him will motivate him to continue on his journey. And he remembers the essential philosophy Allah tala or the last century last blame in the Quran. For those who forgot about what have what their

00:39:37--> 00:39:44

own hands have reaped, because Allah subhanaw taala told us about them. He said woman of mommy Mundo Kira bat,

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

sem akademija this is inserted calf. I 57. Women outnumber last patellae saying who is more unjust, who is more wrongful than someone who is reminded of the verses of Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

And yet he evades from them or evades them. And he turns away from the verses of Allah subhanaw taala like my say, talk to him about religion. Please don't talk to me about religious matters. I talked to him about this, you know this subject, please, I'm still young, I still have time. Don't talk to me about it. Now. I don't want to think about it now. So no turning away from the verses of the last panel to hell. But the second part, when I see a map at the motya there, and he forgot what his own hands have read his his bad deeds, so and motorman cannot forget. men cannot forget his sins. You cannot forget your sins. You have to keep them in mind all the time. You might forget your

00:40:42--> 00:41:27

deeds, your good deeds, your saw the cart. So you don't make men men, you don't feel like you are, you are doing something for the sake of allies like you're your ally deserve your Rama or ally deserve your forgiveness. Because I keep I pray all the time. I pray every day. Muslim men, a true believer does not think this way. You cannot, you know, deal with Allah subhanaw taala in this way. So and then he said now the secret of Farah the secret of Allah subhanaw taala has made a decision to change his life. And he decided to to began his journey of self purification. Now he rolled up his sleeves to compensate to catch up what was what has been missed or has been lost. And he breaks

00:41:27--> 00:41:48

off the shackles of sins with the power of is too far and tober is a beautiful statement from William Rahmatullah IRA, and he yearns for purification. Because we know that nothing will go to Shanna or no one will go to Jenna until he is purified. There are other other proofs from the Quran Allah Dena theta Alpha Omega two pi ybe. tv

00:41:49--> 00:42:15

Haruna Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah quantum Taleban, IB in pure in a state of purity, another proof that no one will go to Jenna unless he is pure, unless he's in the state of purity. This is another delete. But these people, the Malaika will give them this glad tidings at the time of death. And levena teta warfare one Malaika and how do we get this glad tidings

00:42:16--> 00:42:23

at the time of death we will move tell us about different stages. And he will talk a talk tell us about the purification

00:42:25--> 00:43:10

that was designed by Allah subhanho wa Taala for his servants, self purification, which is teskey which is the subject of this course, is part of it. But the purification that Allah has designed for his servants, it's a bigger one that goes through stages from day one from your life here in this in this dunya in the bursa. What will happen in the bursa. What will happen on the Day of Judgment, then if the person is not purified through all these stages, he's not if he's not purified through all these stages, then he will go to hell fire. If he's more heightened moment, he will go to hell fire not to stay there forever. I'm not saying if he's more head not to stay there forever, to stay

00:43:10--> 00:43:52

there for a while. Because the people who will meet Allah with shirk will never leave Johanna. They will stay there forever. But this is for the one who is more hydro is movement. And he has gone through all these stages. The stages of purification that was as I said is it's a different purification that Allah subhanho wa Taala himself has designed for his servants and that will pay him Rama to Allah Allah has told us about all these stages. In his book, he said the for the first process of purification that will happen to human beings so that the believers in dystonia has to be carried out by four means it will be carried out by four means for me is the first one is he said

00:43:52--> 00:44:36

Toba which is turning away from sins at all, because he talks about it Toba Sharmila Alam that means you make terrible from all sins. There are people who make terrible from stealing, for example, but they still talk badly about other people. There are people who make Toba from, you know, giving up salaat or quitting salad, but they still watching bad movies. There are people who method and make Toba from partying, for example, drinking alcohol, but they're still watching bad material on the internet. So there are different sins, different mistakes, different problems. So the terrible Sharmila assadi kalama that will aim has mentioned is to stay away turn away from old sins. This is

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

the template that will benefit the men on the Day of Judgment. And he said the second item is listed for actively he has to be actively involved in is the father on a daily basis. Look at your prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the best of all creation. And he was used to make a stepfather on a daily basis for more than 70 times. And he's the

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

The imam of all messengers and prophets, Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven has all his sins, but yet he was involved in making the stefarr on a daily basis. So number two, number three, he said the good deeds that will erase his bad deeds, the bad ones, the good deeds, number three, this is Indonesian. And number four, he said that the calamities that we face his sins, the calamities, so a calamity, you might you might face a calamity. You might think that it's bad, or maybe Allah subhanaw taala does not like you, but maybe Allah subhanaw taala has a good plan for you a good plan for you. So if you are patient, your sins many of your sins will be will be erased because of this

00:45:42--> 00:46:22

calamity. An example of this calamities, sicknesses, illnesses, the problems that we face in this life with our children, with our families, with our jobs, with our with anything, anything in this life. So any calamity any problem that you face, you have to treat it you need to be patient, and then you get your reward because it is part of this process of purification. So in this dunya four items, we said, What is the first one Toba and it has to be general Toba from all sins, turning away from all sins. He has to be actively involved in an instant far on a daily basis. The good deeds that will erase the bad ones, and a way calamities calamities you're not supposed to look for

00:46:22--> 00:46:43

calamities. That's why this is not self purification. It is Allah Subhana Allah beautifying you through calamities, but you just laugh here as a moment. You ask Allah subhanaw taala for wellbeing, for safety, for good health, this is good, this is the sooner for us Allah says but if you are afflicted by a calamity, you have to be patient.

00:46:44--> 00:46:58

And he said if this is not okay, he said if this is enough, and the person is purified by these four means, if the person is purified by these four means, then he will deserve to be given that glad tidings at the time of death.

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

If he's purified by these four means, the angel will come to you at the time of death. And they will give you the Bushra they will give you the glad tidings you'll be smiling but people are crying. People are crying because if your death your family members, but you are happy, because you receive the glad tidings from the melodica. If you are purified through these four things, there is no Chi you mentioned four items. I couldn't think of anything because Toba here include doing your salad properly, doing your zeca doing your sound. You know Toba has a general meaning that sometimes we miss when we talk about Toba. Now, he said if he's not purified through these things, then we will

00:47:39--> 00:48:22

move to the next stage which is Alberta. Alberta is the time that the person spent between his death till the Day of Judgment, right is the time that the person's spent in the grave between the time of death till the Day of Judgment. He said the first thing that might purify the person is the janaza prayer, the door that is made to Allah subhana wa tada by his own brothers and family members for him. So we're up in front of him. And they do just Jenna as a prayer lahoma fella who Wareham who I think he were for and work at Missoula cemetery. So these two are will benefit the person. And the more we get people, especially pious people, the good ones practicing Muslims, the more we get in

00:48:22--> 00:48:27

there, if we get a good number of these people, then most likely the person will benefit from there too.

00:48:28--> 00:48:54

So and then he said number two, the trials of the grave May Allah Subhana Allah protect all of us from from them, the trials in the grave fitness will cover. So they said if the previous things are not enough, then he asked to be purified through the trials of the grave. And then he said number three, in his after his death is the good deeds that the other people offer to him after his death.

00:48:56--> 00:49:43

The good deeds there are deep that they will there are some of whose his own deeds will benefit him like method and knowledge that he left after books or lectures or whatever. And when it's on here drooto a pious child who would keep making dua for him, or sadaqa jariya and ongoing sadaqa he builds a Masjid or he Dig Dug well, water well, or, you know, anything that he did in dystonia, and it's still giving the fruits and the benefits to other people, then he will keep in are reaping the rewards after his death. Now these things have a you know, he himself has done these things because what is your wallet is your child so you Allah, Allah has given you your child but you brought him

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

You brought him you raised him, you help him to get an Islamic education. You You invited him to to practice the deen and be a pious Muslim. Because a nun you know, someone who is not pious most likely will not remember to make dua to his father, right?

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

So if you have five children most likely they will make dua to you,

00:50:05--> 00:50:21

for you, because they know the importance of making that for their parents, and he said the deeds offered to him by his friends or family members they agreed about agreed consensus agreement about doula and sadaqa.

00:50:22--> 00:50:26

Most of the earlier they said Hajj might reach him and Nomura

00:50:27--> 00:51:00

so Marina, Maddy said there is an agreement that Salah does not reach the person like if you pray on behalf of someone passed away most likely doesn't reach him but you fast on someone who on behalf of someone who passed away and he did not fulfill his fasting his obligations in Ramadan because of the sickness or because of something else he and he has a reason or you know an excuse or that he was planning too fast after Ramadan he couldn't. So you can you can make up fasting on his behalf. So basically to answer the court and has been around on behalf of your family members, so I'm

00:51:01--> 00:51:40

reading Quran reciting Quran is controversial that if you recite Quran by yourself, doing it in JAMA is a bit of a law to Allah Allah any getting together in the masjid and everyone gets a must have any recite by himself. That is not part of the sooner but by yourself sitting down reading Quran it's controversial some rometty said it might reach the dead person it might not allow anymore, I'm not sure but you can make do after reciting Quran because most likely there will be accepted after reciting Quran to bless and have mercy on the person on your family member who passed away. So in the bursa three three things what are the agenda as a prayer the two are during the agenda as a

00:51:40--> 00:52:25

prayer and the trials of the grave. And the deeds that could be offered to him by his family members and friends. And also he said if he's not purified by these things, then there is on the Day of Judgment. He said he could be purified by the dreadfulness of that day. You know the field that you will experience the fields that the person will experience on the Day of Judgment, he'll be waiting for a long time for Allah subhanaw taala to start taking people to account waiting until under the you know the the heat of the sun, he will be suffering. So he we he will be rewarded for the suffering. So he will be purified the person will be purified. He said and if he's not, then he

00:52:25--> 00:53:06

might need the intercession no pay him said the second item on the Day of Judgment, a chef or a chef to chef in the intercession of those whom Allah will allow to intercede on behalf of their friends and family members. On the top of the list Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will intercede on behalf of his ummah and, and also the rest of the prophets, messengers, angels and pious people also will be given the authority or the permission to intercede on behalf of their friends and their family members. And he said the third item on the Day of Judgment is the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for Allah, if Allah subhana wa Taala You know, this person is not purified after

00:53:06--> 00:53:48

all these stages, and and there is some dirt that is left on him. And unless fantana wishes to forgive him in that moment, then it is his choice is his wish subhana wa Taala if he forgives him, then he will be forgiven. He doesn't have to go to that place. But he said if he's not purified through all all these stages, then he has to go higher and he said he has to go to Hellfire to be purified there because he's more if he's more head he cannot stay in jahannam one day he has to go leave Hellfire and go to Jen because he said this is a rule he has to be purified before he goes to Jenna Salas pero Daraa, salaam atoll, afia,

00:53:49--> 00:53:56

Salah Santana and you will feel canaliculi higher. So the process of self purification we're going to focus on it, it is part of this process.

00:53:58--> 00:54:21

The bigger picture of this purification that the last panel has designed, so is part of a Toba is your job is to far as your job doing the good deeds is your homework and you know raising good children doing sadaqa jariya only buying some books or teaching some other people even if you teach your your children family members Surah

00:54:22--> 00:54:41

Surah Al Fatiha it will be a solid on your behalf. This is a knowledge that you left and people will benefit from it your family members will benefit from it and you will find the reward in your account on the Day of Judgment chisako low Hayden Baraka low FICO eight if you have question one or two, just to maximum two is go ahead.

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


00:54:49--> 00:54:52

measure since everything is included,

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

this is a whole year October is part of the process. Of course terrabytes part is number one

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

Toba number one doba shermie lol Amel kameena a sodic. That includes all sins and he stay away Toba. He says okay, I have to change my life. You know when your Toba is pure and is complete, you change your life. When you decide to make this Toba, it's like you are making a major decision in your life to change your life. If you use to desert and abandon the houses of Allah says coming back to the house villa. If you have some problems, then you quit them, and you change your life. This is a Toba that, that is needed, that will benefit the servant on the Day of Judgment.

00:55:40--> 00:55:41


00:55:55--> 00:55:57

talked about about this,

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

this, you know this,

00:56:00--> 00:56:44

this ahaadeeth and he said actually those who are desired or destined to go to gender through this, you know, based on this Hadith, actually, these, these children who died on the state of, you know, we shouldn't say on the state of cover because there are children, before they reach from non Muslim families before they reach the age of puberty will be included, among those whom Allah subhanaw taala has, you know, as written, for them as sad happiness. It will be it will be in general there is no doubt this is the Adela the justice of Allah subhanaw taala because didn't do anything bad. And until the person reaches the age of puberty, then the melodica will not write anything until the

00:56:44--> 00:56:58

person you know reaches that age and then America starts recording for him or against him. So it doesn't make sense to say you know, this young children will go to Hellfire because their parents were were not believers.
