Yes. Do whatever you want.

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

We don't.

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

None.

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

The only reality,

00:00:07 --> 00:00:09

true reality of this life is what?

00:00:10 --> 00:00:13

Everything in this life is a possibility. True

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

or false?

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

Except one thing,

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

death. Yaqeen. That's why Allah called it Yaqeen

00:00:20 --> 00:00:21

in the Quran. Certainty.

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

Allah said this at the last verse of

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

Surat Al Hajar.

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

Worship your Lord till your face Yaqeen,

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

certainty, it's actually done.

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

So quickly,

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

my beautiful sisters and my dear brothers,

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

quickly

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

work for Allah.

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

Move everything in your life, whatever he gave

00:00:49 --> 00:00:51

you, to make it an act of worship.

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

He gave you the best children, use this

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

to get to Jannah. He gives you children

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

which is a struggle,

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

use it to go to Jannah. Gave you

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

beauty, use it to Jannah. Gave you power,

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

use it to Jannah. Whatever he gave you,

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

use it to

00:01:07 --> 00:01:07

hasanah

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

so you will end up

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

in Jannah. Number 8. Right? We are yes.

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

What is time for you?

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

If somebody asked you this abstract question,

00:01:27 --> 00:01:28

can I ask you that?

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

No?

00:01:31 --> 00:01:31

The,

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

yes?

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

Bismillah,

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

how you say if I I come and

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

I say, you know what? This is my

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

first time meeting Muslims,

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

and, I have a question for you. I

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

was like, okay. Let's see what she's gonna

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

ask.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

And I'm gonna say, what is time

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

for a Muslim?

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

What does time mean for a Muslim?

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

Who can answer me? Anybody.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

So time is Amana, is a trust.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

I'm sorry?

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

It's a creation of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

Everything is a creation of Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

Ta'ala.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

Currency?

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

What do you mean?

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

I know what you mean, but I want

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

everyone to understand it.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

Time is what? It's a currency. What does

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

it mean?

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

It's what?

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

So it's like your bank savings.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

It's your currency

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40

for the akhir.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

I like that.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:42

Where is

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

time? This side. This side. This side. This

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

side is much more active. I don't know

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

what's wrong with this side.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

Why? We may have to change.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:53

This side.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

I'm sorry?

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

Unlimited

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

resource?

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

Limited resource? I'm so limited?

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

Okay. So limited resource.

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

I can't hear you.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

Nirma, it's a blessing.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:14

All the time?

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

It can be a nieema,

00:03:19 --> 00:03:20

huge blessing

00:03:21 --> 00:03:22

and it can be a huge

00:03:23 --> 00:03:24

not nieema.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

What else?

00:03:27 --> 00:03:30

I'm I'm still waiting for one answer. I

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

didn't hear it. Everything you answered is correct.

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

There's one answer I'm waiting for. I am

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

a non Muslim.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

I'm asking you, tell me, what is time

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

for a Muslim mean?

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

One person.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:48

Opportunity. We heard that. It's like a currency.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

I will be asked about.

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

I will be asked about the time.

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

Time.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

How many places in the Quran

00:04:04 --> 00:04:07

Allah made an oath with the time?

00:04:14 --> 00:04:15

Isn't that the time?

00:04:18 --> 00:04:19

Isn't that time?

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

Sometime,

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

one of them is like is a time,

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

but reflect

00:04:25 --> 00:04:26

day.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:30

Night reflected the night. Why did he made

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

this oath?

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

Especially you will ask,

00:04:35 --> 00:04:35

why?

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

When do you make an oath?

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

This is how you ask yourself. When you

00:04:41 --> 00:04:42

read the Quran,

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

I you all have to ask

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

questions, not your, Udubillah, questioning Allah subhanahu wa

00:04:47 --> 00:04:49

ta'ala, but you're saying, what are you teaching

00:04:49 --> 00:04:50

me?

00:04:50 --> 00:04:51

Why did you put?

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

Why didn't you

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

say something else?

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

When do you use oath?

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

When the oath is

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

important,

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

it's gonna come next month.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

The 10 nights

00:05:13 --> 00:05:14

time,

00:05:15 --> 00:05:16

it's my

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

asset.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

It is

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

the

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

if I wanna say this, the thing that

00:05:25 --> 00:05:27

Allah gave me

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

that will take me to Jannah straight

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

or will take me out of Jannah straight.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

So the first thing is as a Muslim

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

I need to look at time. Why time?

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

Because I am limited. I have limited time

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

here.

00:05:41 --> 00:05:43

How often we say, I don't have time.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

How often?

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

All the time.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

All the time I don't have time.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

Right?

00:05:51 --> 00:05:52

True.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

All the time. I wish the day is

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

28 hours.

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

Right? I wish the year is 13 months.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

And if it was 13, I wish it

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

was 14.

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

I need to look at time

00:06:03 --> 00:06:04

as my

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

investment.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:09

Time is an investment.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:11

I will see

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

the benefits.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:15

I will see

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

the return of my investment, if you want

00:06:19 --> 00:06:22

to use the words that the money people

00:06:22 --> 00:06:25

use, where will I see the return of

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

my time?

00:06:26 --> 00:06:27

There.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

And that's why Allah made the oath

00:06:31 --> 00:06:32

because it is

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

something take me straight to jannah. He want

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

to remind me and you

00:06:37 --> 00:06:38

pay attention

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

to time.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:45

Everything,

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

every human being is a loser

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

except

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

you all know the the verses.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:05

They practice patient and they help each other

00:07:05 --> 00:07:06

to do the truth.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:08

What does this has to do with?

00:07:12 --> 00:07:13

The person

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

who has,

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

they look

00:07:19 --> 00:07:20

they are so miser

00:07:21 --> 00:07:22

with their time,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:24

more than

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

the person who's so stingy,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

miser with their money.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

Let's do you anybody in this room know

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

somebody who's very miser?

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

Right? What do they do?

00:07:39 --> 00:07:41

Tell them to donate $10.

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

They're so keen about their money.

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

Right?

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

They calculate.

00:07:48 --> 00:07:49

They think,

00:07:49 --> 00:07:51

uh-uh, this is too expensive. No. No. No.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

No. I'm wasting this.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

I can get the same thing with much

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

less money. Do you hear that?

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

Yeah. We don't need this.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:01

Right? If you tell them we're less we're

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

gonna go for dinner. Yeah. I can eat

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

in the house.

00:08:06 --> 00:08:09

The person with Al Qalbous Saleem. Now we're

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

making the connection.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

The person with Al Qalbous Saleem,

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

the pure heart,

00:08:14 --> 00:08:15

they are

00:08:15 --> 00:08:16

so worried

00:08:17 --> 00:08:18

about their time

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

way more than the stingiest

00:08:21 --> 00:08:21

person

00:08:22 --> 00:08:23

worried about their money.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:26

Is this clear?

00:08:28 --> 00:08:29

Let's take examples. Bismillah,

00:08:31 --> 00:08:32

are you ready

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

to be hit

00:08:35 --> 00:08:36

hard? Bismillah.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

How much we waste our time?

00:08:41 --> 00:08:42

Again, this side. This side.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

This side, perfect.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:47

Like they know it all.

00:08:52 --> 00:08:55

I'll give you an example, true example again.

00:08:56 --> 00:08:58

So I had this lady with me, helping

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

me. We had guests coming.

00:09:00 --> 00:09:01

And she said, how can I help you?

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

I said, you know what? Why don't you

00:09:03 --> 00:09:06

make a salad, and I'm gonna make something

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

else.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

Okay?

00:09:07 --> 00:09:09

The woman is making salad.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:11

I personally do salads,

00:09:11 --> 00:09:14

and everything has to have time.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

I'm cooking, finish the first recipe,

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

finish the second recipe. She's chopping.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

And I looked and I said,

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

45 minutes to do a salad?

00:09:28 --> 00:09:29

Only a friend, so I was joking. I

00:09:29 --> 00:09:32

was like, if I'm gonna spend 45 minutes

00:09:32 --> 00:09:34

doing a salad, I will not eat salad

00:09:34 --> 00:09:35

or I will order salad.

00:09:37 --> 00:09:38

That's waste.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

One of the first thing I was taught,

00:09:41 --> 00:09:43

may Allah reward everyone who taught me,

00:09:44 --> 00:09:45

they said,

00:09:46 --> 00:09:47

if anything takes

00:09:48 --> 00:09:50

5 minutes to do

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

and you do it in 7 minutes, you're

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

wasting and Allah will ask you.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

A scary statement for a student of knowledge,

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

but I needed to hear it.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:04

So this is for everybody.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

You have to be so careful about your

00:10:07 --> 00:10:07

time

00:10:08 --> 00:10:09

because time is my investment.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:12

I just shared with you

00:10:12 --> 00:10:15

the imam who spent 4 hours,

00:10:17 --> 00:10:20

right, in salah. What an investment.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

And how many hours we spend was in

00:10:23 --> 00:10:24

other things

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

in general.

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

Scholars of the hearts will tell you, your

00:10:28 --> 00:10:31

day needs to be divided into 4 parts.

00:10:32 --> 00:10:33

So don't think you only have to do

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

worship.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:35

That's not reality.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:38

Part of it,

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

it's usually 4. Part of it,

00:10:41 --> 00:10:43

is you and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:44

Period.

00:10:45 --> 00:10:47

You with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

Part of it

00:10:50 --> 00:10:52

for making your living. So if you are

00:10:52 --> 00:10:55

working or you have, you you work outside

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

the house or you work inside the house,

00:10:57 --> 00:10:59

Doesn't matter. Make your living. Because we as

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

Muslims, we need to be

00:11:01 --> 00:11:04

independent, take care of ourselves. We cannot have

00:11:04 --> 00:11:07

all the Muslims worship Allah only and who's

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08

gonna feed us.

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

So these are the 2, then you have

00:11:10 --> 00:11:10

the 2.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

Part of it is with people

00:11:15 --> 00:11:17

who's gonna bring you closer to Allah.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:20

We, human beings, by nature, love to be

00:11:20 --> 00:11:21

with people.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

Why What is the name of the human

00:11:23 --> 00:11:25

being in Arabic?

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

I wanna hear it.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

Insan.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:33

Right? What's the origin of insan? Uns.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:37

And then uns is solace with somebody.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:39

By nature,

00:11:40 --> 00:11:41

human beings

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

is not the nature to be alone.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

The nature is to be with people whether

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

in these days people are real people or

00:11:48 --> 00:11:48

people

00:11:50 --> 00:11:50

virtual.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:53

But we are by nature.

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

Allah created us to be with people. That's

00:11:56 --> 00:11:58

why Allah created to Hawa for to say

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

it in Adam.

00:12:00 --> 00:12:03

So part of your day is with people.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:08

What is the 4th part now? So people

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

including family, including friends,

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

but this needs to be

00:12:13 --> 00:12:15

divided equally. What is the fourth one?

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

Yourself

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

reflecting

00:12:20 --> 00:12:20

on you,

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

me,

00:12:22 --> 00:12:23

our journey,

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

where I am,

00:12:25 --> 00:12:27

reflecting on Allah creation,

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29

reflecting on my mistakes,

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

reflecting on my good deeds, reflecting,

00:12:33 --> 00:12:36

and taking care of yourself also.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:37

So 4 parts.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:39

One with Allah,

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

one with my dunya. I need to take

00:12:42 --> 00:12:44

care of my dunya. I need to work.

00:12:44 --> 00:12:46

I need to make money. I need to

00:12:46 --> 00:12:47

be independent.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:48

All this,

00:12:48 --> 00:12:50

fine. Part with people

00:12:51 --> 00:12:52

and part with you.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:56

Normally, look at this 4 and tell me,

00:12:57 --> 00:12:59

Including the sleep goes in here.

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

Tell me reality.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

From these 4, where are we?

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

What's the percentages?

00:13:09 --> 00:13:10

I

00:13:11 --> 00:13:13

I don't hear anything.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:16

So what is the ratio?

00:13:17 --> 00:13:18

What is the ratio of me and Allah

00:13:19 --> 00:13:21

and the ratio of me and my work?

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

The ratio of me with people

00:13:25 --> 00:13:28

and the ratio with of me with me,

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

I leave it to you.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:38

Your own self has a right upon you.

00:13:39 --> 00:13:41

People has right upon you.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

Allah has right upon you,

00:13:44 --> 00:13:46

and making a living has a right.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:50

12, 16 hours working, what's left?

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53

What's left?

00:13:54 --> 00:13:56

Not enough energy to breathe,

00:13:57 --> 00:13:58

Let alone to reflect,

00:13:59 --> 00:14:00

to to pray properly,

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

take care of the people.

00:14:04 --> 00:14:05

Balance.

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

Balance.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:08

What the

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

scale.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:30

Don't

00:14:31 --> 00:14:33

don't tilt

00:14:33 --> 00:14:34

the scale.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:39

Again, our problem humanity, not only Muslims,

00:14:40 --> 00:14:42

is we have tilted the scale.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:44

Either I spend most of my time taking

00:14:44 --> 00:14:45

care of myself

00:14:46 --> 00:14:48

or most of the time working,

00:14:48 --> 00:14:50

A lot of the time complaining.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

Too much time with people, there's no balance.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:58

Not even balance in the days, Jani. Someday

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

I have to work more. Okay. In the

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

day that I don't have to work more,

00:15:01 --> 00:15:03

will I bring the balance back?

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

That's for

00:15:06 --> 00:15:06

you.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:09

Is where there is balance in the time.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:12

Balance in the time

00:15:13 --> 00:15:16

and make the time the investment.

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

This is the and to me, in this

00:15:18 --> 00:15:20

day and age, this is the most important

00:15:20 --> 00:15:21

one.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:24

I have seen people,

00:15:25 --> 00:15:27

subhanallah, for their time.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:29

I learned

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

one thing which I have not learned before,

00:15:31 --> 00:15:34

20 minutes nap. Most of the teachers, female,

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

where they taught me, that's what they do.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:37

I say 20 minutes nap,

00:15:38 --> 00:15:40

and then I woke up.

00:15:40 --> 00:15:42

They said, yeah, more than enough. It will

00:15:42 --> 00:15:44

give you the energy. Try it.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:45

20 minutes.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:48

If they are in the car and they

00:15:48 --> 00:15:51

are not driving, they're doing something beneficial.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:55

There's no phone call. Just hi, how are

00:15:55 --> 00:15:57

you, what's going on, and on and on.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:00

The phone call has to be serving something,

00:16:01 --> 00:16:04

helping people, serving something, teaching something, something

00:16:05 --> 00:16:06

for my

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

bank account of the akhir.

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

Number 9.

00:16:13 --> 00:16:14

Are you tired?

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

You're real?

00:16:18 --> 00:16:19

I hope you're not making this up just

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

to make me happy.

00:16:21 --> 00:16:23

I don't think so. Like,

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

the 91.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:30

Okay. Another question because the question makes you

00:16:30 --> 00:16:30

think.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

When you finish your salah and I bring

00:16:34 --> 00:16:36

the example of salah because this is something

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

we all know. When you finish, let's say

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

we're gonna go for

00:16:40 --> 00:16:41

and then when I finish,

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

What's the worries

00:16:44 --> 00:16:47

when I go back and think of sunnah?

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

Normally, what do we say?

00:16:49 --> 00:16:50

I prayed.

00:16:54 --> 00:16:55

Right?

00:16:56 --> 00:16:57

How often

00:16:58 --> 00:16:59

me and you and us?

00:17:00 --> 00:17:01

Think of the following question.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

What quality of salah I did?

00:17:05 --> 00:17:08

What did I present to Allah? What quality?

00:17:10 --> 00:17:13

Who who think and worry about the quality

00:17:13 --> 00:17:14

of the deed,

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

not the deed?

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

Show me hands.

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

The quality,

00:17:21 --> 00:17:24

not too bad. How about Ramadan, the fasting?

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

Did we say I fasted the month

00:17:30 --> 00:17:31

Did I say the usual

00:17:32 --> 00:17:35

30 days of no food and no drink?

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

But the quality,

00:17:38 --> 00:17:39

the person of Al Qalboussaneen,

00:17:41 --> 00:17:43

what is about the quality of the deed?

00:17:44 --> 00:17:45

Not only doing the deed.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

And the quality include the following.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

For those of you who said yes.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:52

Number 1,

00:17:52 --> 00:17:54

was it pure for Allah?

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57

Did you do it to the best of

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

your ability?

00:17:59 --> 00:18:00

Did you do it

00:18:01 --> 00:18:02

following

00:18:02 --> 00:18:03

the sunnah of

00:18:07 --> 00:18:08

Alaihi, did you do it with

00:18:08 --> 00:18:09

ihsan,

00:18:10 --> 00:18:11

utmost excellence?

00:18:12 --> 00:18:13

Look at the next 2.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

And I if you remember this,

00:18:17 --> 00:18:19

it will change your life.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

Do you look at what you did,

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

a good deed,

00:18:23 --> 00:18:24

that this is a favor

00:18:25 --> 00:18:26

Allah gave you?

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

I didn't do

00:18:30 --> 00:18:32

it. It's not because of me.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:33

It's he he

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

favored me with this.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:39

You say,

00:18:40 --> 00:18:42

You made me fast.

00:18:43 --> 00:18:45

You brought me here. You

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

made me stand up and teach.

00:18:50 --> 00:18:51

And

00:18:52 --> 00:18:55

the last one, you look how much

00:18:56 --> 00:18:57

you could have done it better.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:03

You know when we do this all the

00:19:03 --> 00:19:04

time?

00:19:04 --> 00:19:05

When we cook.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:07

Honestly,

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

you all do that. We cook, let's say

00:19:10 --> 00:19:12

if you're baking a cake,

00:19:12 --> 00:19:14

the first thing when the cake comes out

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

from the oven and you turned it, what

00:19:16 --> 00:19:17

do you look at? Shape.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:21

Should be better.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

It's a little bit dent here.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:26

I want it to be, what is that?

00:19:27 --> 00:19:28

You're looking at

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

the shortcomings

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

that I could have done it better And

00:19:32 --> 00:19:34

then if you are gonna put frosting and

00:19:34 --> 00:19:35

you're gonna put,

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

whatever you're gonna garnish it with, you keep

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

looking at it and you move it. Why

00:19:40 --> 00:19:41

do they turn it? Why do they you

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

put it on a round and then you

00:19:43 --> 00:19:46

turn, so you see all the corners. Looks

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

good.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:49

Let me do this. Let me do that.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:52

The person of Al Qalbous Salim

00:19:53 --> 00:19:54

looks at the deeds

00:19:55 --> 00:19:57

they do with Allah with this.

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

It wasn't the best,

00:20:01 --> 00:20:03

I could have done the salah a little

00:20:03 --> 00:20:03

bit more.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

I could have said the dhikr. Now again,

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

this is highest high levels, but at least

00:20:09 --> 00:20:10

let's start with the beginning.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

I'll give you one practical example.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:16

How many of you timed their salah?

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

Time the salah.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

You entered, it was 1 o'clock.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:25

And then when you finish, you said

00:20:26 --> 00:20:26

105.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:30

And you say that's it, 5 minutes?

00:20:32 --> 00:20:34

Versus you're gonna say, I'm gonna do 15

00:20:34 --> 00:20:35

minutes,

00:20:35 --> 00:20:37

So I'm gonna do my

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

longer. I'm gonna do my and you're gonna

00:20:39 --> 00:20:40

start counting.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:41

I'm gonna do

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

15 times.

00:20:43 --> 00:20:44

I'm gonna do

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

20 times, whatever it is.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

The more you worry about the quality,

00:20:51 --> 00:20:53

what are you presenting to Allah,

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

then I did it,

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

then your because

00:20:58 --> 00:21:01

your focus on Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

Number 10, there's 2 more only left, and

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

then may Allah

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

make me number 1 able to do it.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

The number 10,

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12

the kalbu salim

00:21:13 --> 00:21:14

is salim

00:21:15 --> 00:21:15

salim

00:21:16 --> 00:21:17

sound healthy

00:21:18 --> 00:21:18

from

00:21:19 --> 00:21:19

anything

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

that Allah does not love.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

Nothing in that heart.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:29

If I take the the heart out of

00:21:29 --> 00:21:30

the person who has Qalboussareem

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

and I look at it, nothing in there

00:21:33 --> 00:21:34

that Allah doesn't love.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:39

Let's let's do some exercise of the Quran.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

What does Allah doesn't love? Give me give

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

me examples from the Quran.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

Allah does not love. What?

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

Those who practice injustice,

00:21:52 --> 00:21:53

do you?

00:21:55 --> 00:21:57

Of course, you're gonna say no. Really?

00:21:58 --> 00:21:59

Really?

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

So when your friend that you really love

00:22:02 --> 00:22:04

say something and you don't like that,

00:22:04 --> 00:22:06

then just say, you know what? She didn't

00:22:06 --> 00:22:07

mean it.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:09

And the person who sit next on this

00:22:09 --> 00:22:11

other side, you don't like her. She said

00:22:11 --> 00:22:12

exactly the same.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

Right? And you say, uh-huh.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

See? I told you. That's why I don't

00:22:18 --> 00:22:19

like her.

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

That's injustice. You have 2 scales.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:24

It's the same word.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:30

The children. It's a huge problem, honey.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:31

Children.

00:22:31 --> 00:22:33

Especially when the child, one of them is

00:22:33 --> 00:22:36

really easygoing and help you, and the other

00:22:36 --> 00:22:39

one is, we call it their high maintenance.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:42

You know what that mean? That's very common,

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

but phrase in the United States. High maintenance

00:22:45 --> 00:22:48

meaning difficult person in general, even with patients.

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

Sometimes like, oh, that's a high maintenance patient.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:53

Meaning I have to be more patient, I

00:22:53 --> 00:22:53

have to be

00:22:54 --> 00:22:56

when you have these 2 children, do you

00:22:56 --> 00:22:57

treat them fairly?

00:22:58 --> 00:22:59

100%.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

And if I open that heart, I'll find

00:23:05 --> 00:23:07

in it everything Allah says.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:10

Allah loves those who are truthful.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:16

Those who are forgiving, who give does everything

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

with excellence.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:18

That's the heart.

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

Everything in it

00:23:21 --> 00:23:22

that Allah loves

00:23:23 --> 00:23:26

and everything that Allah doesn't love. And I'm

00:23:26 --> 00:23:28

gonna share this hadith, I love this hadith

00:23:28 --> 00:23:29

to an imam Ahmed.

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

Rasool alaihis salatu wasalam said, who are which

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

one is the best person?

00:23:36 --> 00:23:38

Who which of the people

00:23:39 --> 00:23:39

is best?

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

Who is? Can anyone answer?

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

I'm sorry?

00:23:51 --> 00:23:52

One person. I'm sorry.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:57

So small deed continuously.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:00

You're referring to another hadith.

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

Now this is the question is who's the

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

best person?

00:24:04 --> 00:24:05

If I ask you here who's the best

00:24:05 --> 00:24:06

person,

00:24:06 --> 00:24:08

gonna say the person who obey Allah,

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

the person who does this, the person the

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

person who's mashallah does all this charity, whatever.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:14

Right?

00:24:14 --> 00:24:16

He said 2 qualities.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:19

1 is related to the heart. That's why

00:24:19 --> 00:24:20

we're talking about. He said,

00:24:21 --> 00:24:22

and I said

00:24:27 --> 00:24:28

He said everyone

00:24:29 --> 00:24:30

who is 2 criteria,

00:24:31 --> 00:24:33

look at yourself, don't look at anybody.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:34

Pure of heart.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

Pure of heart

00:24:37 --> 00:24:38

and truthful in speech.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:42

They said we know truthful in speech. That's

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

easy.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:45

What is this pure heart?

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

This is the word he said in an

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

Araby, which is hard word. What is this

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

pure heart? They want a real you know,

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

as we say, one of the bottom line.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

And he said and he gave it to

00:24:56 --> 00:24:58

us. And let's see you. He said,

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

the pure heart

00:25:01 --> 00:25:02

is

00:25:05 --> 00:25:07

a person who is

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

pious.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:12

The heart is absolutely pure, and they said,

00:25:12 --> 00:25:14

what is that? He said, doesn't have the

00:25:14 --> 00:25:15

following.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:17

No sin,

00:25:18 --> 00:25:19

no injustice,

00:25:20 --> 00:25:21

no anger,

00:25:22 --> 00:25:22

no

00:25:23 --> 00:25:24

envy.

00:25:24 --> 00:25:26

Let's say it one more time.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:28

Truthful in tongue.

00:25:29 --> 00:25:30

Hopefully that's easy.

00:25:31 --> 00:25:34

Now come here. Nobody knows except him, subhanah.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:36

I have no idea what is in your

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

heart. You have no idea what is in

00:25:38 --> 00:25:39

my heart, only him.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

Four things.

00:25:42 --> 00:25:45

The heart is pious. That's your relationship with

00:25:45 --> 00:25:45

him.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:49

And the heart is pure. That's relationship with

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

people.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:51

No anger,

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

no hatred,

00:25:54 --> 00:25:55

no jealousy

00:25:57 --> 00:25:57

at all,

00:25:58 --> 00:26:00

and don't and there is nothing next to

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

it says

00:26:01 --> 00:26:03

it depends what they did.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:07

Did you see it? Now you're laughing, all

00:26:07 --> 00:26:08

of you.

00:26:08 --> 00:26:11

So alhamdulillah, you got it. No sin,

00:26:11 --> 00:26:12

no injustice,

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

no envy,

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

no anger,

00:26:16 --> 00:26:18

then you have a pure heart.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:22

If you say to yourself or to somebody,

00:26:22 --> 00:26:24

I can't forgive her. You don't know what

00:26:24 --> 00:26:25

she did to me.

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

Your your heart pure heart, is in process.

00:26:32 --> 00:26:33

Or you say you don't know what he

00:26:33 --> 00:26:35

did to me. He stole my money.

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

He took the company from me,

00:26:39 --> 00:26:39

Right?

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

He hurt my daughter.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

He did this and this and this and

00:26:43 --> 00:26:44

this to my daughter.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:47

I can never forgive him. That doesn't mean

00:26:47 --> 00:26:48

you love him.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:49

We are human,

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

but I am not gonna say I will

00:26:51 --> 00:26:53

never forgive him.

00:26:54 --> 00:26:55

Miss Paula, I was this with a very

00:26:55 --> 00:26:58

dear friend to me. Her daughter went coming

00:26:58 --> 00:26:58

through divorce,

00:26:59 --> 00:27:01

and it was a hard one. And I

00:27:01 --> 00:27:02

I mediated

00:27:02 --> 00:27:04

between them. And the man really and please

00:27:04 --> 00:27:07

forgive me, brothers, but really the man was

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

very unfair.

00:27:08 --> 00:27:09

SubhanAllah.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:10

And he ruined her

00:27:11 --> 00:27:12

as a woman.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:16

And subhanallah and the the the the the

00:27:16 --> 00:27:19

wife didn't say much. She was very but

00:27:20 --> 00:27:22

the mother, her mother says, I can't forgive

00:27:22 --> 00:27:23

what he did to my daughter.

00:27:24 --> 00:27:26

And I said, how does Allah forgive us

00:27:26 --> 00:27:26

then?

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

What did we do to him?

00:27:29 --> 00:27:31

How much he gave us?

00:27:31 --> 00:27:32

And we disobey

00:27:33 --> 00:27:34

him right and left.

00:27:35 --> 00:27:37

Right? And we does things he doesn't like

00:27:37 --> 00:27:38

and he still give us.

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

So look at your heart.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:44

If you still can't say I can't forgive

00:27:44 --> 00:27:46

him or when the picture of that person

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

comes in front of you, there's still feelings

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

here.

00:27:49 --> 00:27:51

You know how you know what I'm saying?

00:27:52 --> 00:27:53

Then you are not there yet.

00:27:54 --> 00:27:55

The last but not the least,

00:27:58 --> 00:28:00

you follow the sunnah of

00:28:02 --> 00:28:03

to the letter.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

You don't say it's just sunnah,

00:28:07 --> 00:28:09

and I think we talked about it.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

And he he took the hand of Abu

00:28:13 --> 00:28:14

Umama,

00:28:14 --> 00:28:15

and he was one of the sahaba,

00:28:16 --> 00:28:17

and he said

00:28:19 --> 00:28:21

he, Abu Umama al Bahili, he said the

00:28:21 --> 00:28:22

Rasool alaihi

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

took my hand and he said

00:28:24 --> 00:28:25

from the believers

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

there is some where their hearts

00:28:29 --> 00:28:30

are

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

are lenient to me.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

Hearts their hearts are close to me. And

00:28:35 --> 00:28:37

he said what is that? He said they

00:28:37 --> 00:28:38

follow my sunnah.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:42

Don't you belittle the sunnah of Rasulullah

00:28:43 --> 00:28:44

to say.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:47

Don't you say it's just a sunnah.

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

On the

00:28:50 --> 00:28:53

contrary, you Allah make me follow his sunnah

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

in every bit.

00:28:56 --> 00:28:58

Somebody recently said I'm gonna go and do

00:28:58 --> 00:29:00

a hijama. You know, hijama?

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

Yes, everybody?

00:29:03 --> 00:29:04

The hijama cupping.

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

And and they said, why?

00:29:07 --> 00:29:08

Said no reason.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:10

Sunnah.

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

I loved it.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:15

Because the the person who was doing the

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16

Hijama for them, they said, do you have

00:29:16 --> 00:29:19

any problem? Says no. Said then why you're

00:29:19 --> 00:29:20

doing it? It's sunnah.

00:29:21 --> 00:29:23

He used to do it. I wanna do

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

it.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:25

Then the heart is.

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

Your heart is.

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

The last but not the least.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

No. Actually, this was the last one. Summary.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:35

So I'm gonna give you the summary.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:41

Bismillah. It's gonna be points. Let's take home

00:29:41 --> 00:29:42

with you.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:44

The sound heart is the following.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46

The heart

00:29:48 --> 00:29:49

please forgive me.

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

Heart.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:53

All the worry is about Allah.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:56

And this is gonna be all. The word

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

all is gonna come

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

in every point.

00:29:59 --> 00:30:00

All the worry is about Allah.

00:30:01 --> 00:30:02

All the love

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04

is for Allah.

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

All the intention

00:30:07 --> 00:30:08

is for Allah.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:12

All his body or her body

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

for

00:30:14 --> 00:30:14

Allah.

00:30:15 --> 00:30:16

All the deeds

00:30:17 --> 00:30:18

for Allah.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:20

Sleeping

00:30:21 --> 00:30:21

for Allah.

00:30:23 --> 00:30:24

Waking up

00:30:24 --> 00:30:25

for Allah,

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

talking about Allah

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

more beloved

00:30:31 --> 00:30:33

than talking about anything else.

00:30:35 --> 00:30:36

All his thoughts

00:30:38 --> 00:30:39

roam around what

00:30:40 --> 00:30:41

pleases Allah.

00:30:44 --> 00:30:46

The whole heart is by Allah,

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

for Allah,

00:30:49 --> 00:30:50

and with Allah.

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

All the heart is

00:30:53 --> 00:30:54

by Allah,

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

for Allah

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

and

00:30:58 --> 00:30:59

for Allah.

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

And the heart walks always

00:31:03 --> 00:31:04

with Allah,

00:31:05 --> 00:31:06

away from people.

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

May Allah give

00:31:09 --> 00:31:10

us this.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:14

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala make us of

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

those who will stand in front of him

00:31:16 --> 00:31:17

with a pure heart.

00:31:18 --> 00:31:19

Make this dua for yourself.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:21

Make it for your family.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:24

Make it for all the brothers and sisters.

00:31:24 --> 00:31:26

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

Maybe hard for you and me, but it's

00:31:28 --> 00:31:29

00:31:29 --> 00:31:30

hard whatsoever

00:31:30 --> 00:31:32

for Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
