So we're gonna continue Inshallah, the way I'm going to do is we're going to continue with the COBOL stream, and then I'm going to probably finish around three o'clock the material, then I will give you half an hour to questions and answers. Probably if you want that's your choice is we can stop the recording a

question answer so you feel more comfortable. If that's how you're wired. I will leave it to you. So who can tell me what did we learn the signs of the sound hub? Bismillah.

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

Ah, everyone is cheating. But that's okay.

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

At least you haven't threatened so I'm fine Bismillah

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


00:01:08 --> 00:01:25

I love that if we commit a sin, because this is very important for our daily life. When I commit a sin and I feel bad about it, you have a good heart. However, I will add one thing because this may be misunderstood. When you feel bad about it, the question has to come What?

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

What did you do about it?

00:01:29 --> 00:02:15

What did you do about the feeling? Did you change? Did you follow through with a good deed stick for asking Allah for forgiveness. So for example, is something you looked at and you shouldn't look at you know, you do you shouldn't and the obvious is not like something doubtful or maybe clear haram. Clear. And I use the word haram. And you know what? We got weak. And you looked it came out maybe you didn't even look for it. It just came out. Then you looked and then you liked it knifes desire, and I kept looking. When I when I finished in me. There is guilt feeling. Why did I lock? Why did I keep looking? Why did I turn it off? Very good news. Heart is is alert. Like you know when you are?

00:02:16 --> 00:02:28

Remember this all the time. So you'll remember always combine it with real life and it will become much easier. You know you're doing a diet. You're being very good on it. And suddenly you ate a doughnut.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:56

You ate a doughnut? You liked it. You enjoyed it. But then afterward, why did I do that? You've been a good girl for six weeks or eight weeks. Why is that? That's good news. Now for sins. You have to follow it up with the followings otherwise the heart will die. The heart will become sick and then we'll die two things immediately immediately. I want to hear it

00:02:57 --> 00:03:16

you ask Allah for forgiveness immediately. Don't wait till tomorrow don't wait oh let me finish what I'm doing immediately. For this is like your love please forgive me. Any words of Stefan do it a stop for Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah subhana Can you come to me of volume in anything you know you don't know anything? Just say Allah please forgive me one two.

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

Which is very important I assume

00:03:22 --> 00:03:39

I can hear you no no I not the second sign I'm sorry. The second thing when you do a sin when we sin first you felt it you know it is wrong you know It's haram don't eat yourself because that's one way of shame on so number one you ask Allah for forgiveness second

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

follow with with a good deed

00:03:43 --> 00:03:52

however it's about a see al Hassan them haha that's what he said Ali salatu salam follow a bad deed with a good deed it will remove it

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

so what do you do? Let's say we back by it

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

and then you left that gathering I was like why did I say this?

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

Right I'm backbiting there's no different opinion about it. Right? Then you're gonna ask Allah for forgiveness and you're gonna do something for this person he or she to defend them

00:04:12 --> 00:04:18

if there is no opportunity right away, put your hands up and make dua for them that way you do have for yourself

00:04:20 --> 00:04:32

your Allah forgive me your ma forgive her Allah give me generally for dose you Allah given legitimately for dose you're fine. So the first thing is you feel pain when you disobey Allah go to second Hi isms

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

just say to whatever

00:04:42 --> 00:04:48

your your, you are moving away from living in this life to just as if you are living in there.

00:04:49 --> 00:05:00

And the actual meaning was sitting like this now, right? If I'm a person focused on our hero, let's practice it. I'm a person focus on our hero. I have a sound heart. I'm sitting in this view

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

waterfall gathering what is in my mind?

00:05:03 --> 00:05:16

If I'm looking at everybody, I was like, Oh, she's beautiful. She's this. She's that. Not all of a sudden, we're an amazing gathering. But what what should come in my mind, I tell it many things, but just give me one thing. I'm sorry.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

Raise your hand as

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

I said,

00:05:23 --> 00:05:47

good things, whatever we have heard and then try to practice. It's true but I'm talking about seeing you all because I want you to start living tusky in your daily life. In your daily life, you're in a good gathering, right? Whether you were invited whether like this a good gathering, you learned well you felt well you felt you were pushed or pulled up. What should come to your mind many things but just give me one thing Aliante saw

00:05:50 --> 00:06:06

Yeah, yeah, but you're not thinking you're not thinking of an era you're all saying right but you're not thinking of our hero. Remember the second one that that person always think thoughts is around our hero so here I am. What in my akhira Yes

00:06:09 --> 00:06:27

exactly, exactly like here I am. We are all here your Allah looking at ya ya allah just like you gathered me here with this beautiful company. All are eager to learn about you and come closer to your Allah please give it to me in Ghana. Then your focus.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:57

Did you see it's not you don't need someone to remind you. You keep reminding yourself everything you do you see connected with our hair for example, you go to the beach beautiful city you go there to walk on the beach. Beautiful. How am I going to do this for Acura? Yes, I'm gonna say subhanallah will hamdulillah but for our Euro I'm gonna say your ma for example this something comes to my mind when I asked you that he gave me all this beauty your Allah don't deprive me of the beauty of Jana.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:19

And this way, you're all had this is what it means your Tahoe and a dunya move away from me doesn't mean they don't live we live we have to live live we take care of our children, family work everything. But we are always connecting it when akhira and this you know what the result of it. I will have no time for people.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:39

I will not be focused on people our biggest distractions people. True or False? Right? I don't have time for that. I'm focusing on my hair. So number two, move away from dunya as I am moving in dunya you know I told you earlier I'm getting close to my death and I say I'm getting closer to my Jana

00:07:41 --> 00:07:42

inshallah three.

00:07:45 --> 00:08:12

Okay, cheat sheet. Whatever you wrote is okay. I'll accept it. Yes. Someone who desires an act of obedience more than a person. Exactly. And humbler you'll remember this because of the example somebody the person with a pure heart desire, the act of obedience, more than a hungry person, desire for food. So you are here and you say hamdulillah what time is also

00:08:14 --> 00:08:19

important. It's not like, okay, okay, so I'll leave before that. Now

00:08:21 --> 00:08:43

you're gonna say Alhamdulillah. Asana another hour, how the robot productive robot. This is what he said. He saw it. When you wait for Salah after solder, everything what you are looking for? Is the obedience of Allah. You're happy. You now I'm going to use the word. But again for us to analyze. Acts of obedience is not a burden

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

is not a burden.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:55

When we pray most we normally say, Hey, I'm the last one lit. Hamdulillah I finished. Right?

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

That's not somebody in love.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:05

Because when you are in love with someone, you don't want to stop talking to them. They say I'm sorry, I have to go out Ed.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:22

Or you say I'm sorry, but it's two o'clock. Why does the two o'clock come so quickly? Because you're in love. Right? So that's how it is the first thing that I was saying, what I want you all to do, ask Allah to give it to you.

00:09:23 --> 00:09:24

Make it part of your DUA

00:09:25 --> 00:09:34

along with the her Kobina mercy work your Allah purify my heart from anything but you that subconsciously

00:09:35 --> 00:09:50

make a DUA and Allah can do it. Allah can do it. The one who brought you or made you muslim or you are a Muslim or changed you or they made you more practicing made you come he can do it. It's not a big deal for him. Subhanallah Malika Allahu BRGs for like what's next?

00:09:52 --> 00:09:53

What is about what?

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

What is about Allah only? What is about Allah? Are you please

00:10:00 --> 00:10:14

Wouldn't you know what we say? You go for a gathering. Right? No, you invite people to your home. Very common. It's weekend. I'm sure you have either yesterday or today or tomorrow when they when the guests guests leave, what is your worry

00:10:19 --> 00:10:29

too to through cleaning up, but let's assume you had an amazing guests, which I recently had they cleaned everything before they left. Honestly, I was like Robbie, I'm inviting them every day.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:34

When you will they leave? What are you thinking? That?

00:10:37 --> 00:10:55

Why do you think thinking about you don't want Are they happy? If you're a good human being? Did I serve them? Well? Did I give them their due? Right? Right? If you are I was like, Okay, if you're really focused on on them, right? I don't know what they will talk about me when they leave. I hope then you are

00:10:56 --> 00:10:59

distracted. It should be

00:11:01 --> 00:11:21

your law please accepted. On the day of judgment. I invited these people. And those people were practicing. We prayed together. I did my best to feed them. Yeah. Now please forgive me. If I did not give them their due, right? The way that pleases you? Are you all with me? It is all connected to

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

goes through this circle.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:28

I don't see you.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:51

I see you. But I don't see you. I see him Subhana send you may mean by to help to me, or the other way around. They really gave you a hard time and sometimes people come to your home just to make your life difficult shortfalls. They exist. May Allah make us among that. And they left

00:11:52 --> 00:11:58

and you set yourself this is it? No more than not coming to my house?

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

You didn't see what Allah who wanted from you? Why did Allah allow you to invite them? Why did Allah unleash them against me in my house? So what should be my reaction?

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

Talking to him?

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

What did I do your law? Please forgive me?

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

Did you get my point? This is how tertile and dunya. This is how your worry? This is all by the way is one and you they are he demand no time he separated but it's all around one. Everything around you is about Allah subhanaw taala SubhanAllah. Very, also, very recently, somebody was saying this to me.

00:12:40 --> 00:13:14

She was she was listening to this versus virtually in sun. January domain Condesa. And voila, Shakira. We don't want any gratefulness from you, or any reward. This is Allah Santa's talking about those people in Jana, special place. And Jana, what did they do? They used to feed people help people, and they say we don't need anything from you. Meaning we're doing it only for Allah. And they were sincere because Allah gave them value. So she said, as I was hearing this, I asked Allah to make me among them. Look at the woman, this was a woman.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

And she said, Subhan Allah, he answered.

00:13:19 --> 00:13:28

I said, What do you mean? She said, less than a week, somebody needed help. 99% of the people didn't do it.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:30

And I said, I'll do it.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:32

And she did it.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:40

And that person who she helped, which is so and she was telling me what she did? Absolutely in this day and age, most people will not do it.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:50

Actually people look at you and says, Are you crazy? Is it how it is? And she said I did it. And that person at the end did not even say thank you.

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

And I said you said it to Allah.

00:13:57 --> 00:14:13

You said it to Allah make me among those people who they feed the needy and they don't want from them exactly the word Landry don't come visit and voila, should Cora we don't want you to be grateful. We don't want any reward. He responded, why you are upset.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:21

And she didn't think of it this way. And I was like, You should be very happy.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:26

If you got upset she didn't say thank you. Then you are not truthful with Allah.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:44

So here you go. Did you get my point? Everything is around him in your daily life. You're not going to change you're not going to be a saint living in that mountain. That's not Islam. Islam is a day of daily living. Okay, what else?

00:14:45 --> 00:14:48

Management time management we stopped at that.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:59

Time is we grew up in the Arab world is some of you will you know what? I'll walk to Kasabian 11th Akbar who kakak This is

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

like I was, I think in, I don't know, second or third grade when they taught us this, they said time is like a sword. If you are not going to use it, it will use you. Meaning if you're not going to cut it, it that's the sword will cut you. For us these days, everybody is talking about time management. Anytime I especially young people, young professionals, you will want to talk about time management.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:28

Okay, what is time?

00:15:31 --> 00:15:42

What is time management? This is time management. And you're cornered Subhanallah and your opponent shall have York TV, and he had that will die and Manasa didn't actually show hungry man.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:48

The person with a pure heart, look at time is their asset.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:59

And they are so worried that they are not going to waste their acid weigh more than a person who so miser and don't waste their money.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

That's a conclusory

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

look at our time.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:18

Again, I'm saying we spend the time in Halal I'm not talking about haram had a different story completely from A to Z. But in Hannah and Hannah, we spend three four hours cooking

00:16:19 --> 00:16:43

three, four hours cooking, am I correct? Right? I can give you list off in every country lists off a dish that takes three four hours and you eat it within three seconds. Right? Or you spend three four hours serving the internet because you want to buy this car and you'll go through every single detail and you know and you're absolutely fine with it. Someone looks at you and says

00:16:44 --> 00:16:49

can you do a 30 minute tour car two units of solder? They say what

00:16:50 --> 00:16:53

30 minutes? Are you out of your mind?

00:16:54 --> 00:17:08

I said one is just 30 minutes. You spent three hours in the kitchen feeding people or buying something for yourself or at work preparing for a deadline project hours and hours.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:14

But when it comes to the actions with Allah subhanaw taala

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

right I think I shared with you this I lived it last summer one. When I went to that masjid, the night first night of Ramadan my friend was telling me this Imam starts tahajjud from the first night I said okay hamdulillah algo said but I'm gonna tell you

00:17:33 --> 00:17:40

he prayed long, but she didn't give me any idea. I said okay. hamdulillah what's long for us?

00:17:41 --> 00:17:46

Yanni 15 minutes aroca Yanni I'm done, right. When is he going to say Allahu Akbar?

00:17:47 --> 00:18:03

So I go in and I he she said he starts either at 1215 or 1230 So I was there I remember the time because there is a reason why I remember the time so I went in and I looked into a standard 12 Maybe 17 But he was already started.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:05

And he started Bacara

00:18:07 --> 00:18:10

00:18:27 --> 00:18:30

Okay. And then when did he say Allahu Akbar finished at Bacara

00:18:33 --> 00:18:40

the Imam is more than 65 year old. I know who he is a very well known in the world. He goes for record what is the record?

00:18:41 --> 00:18:49

You know how the record as long as you know how you know what the record is long. Is when the Imam when he say semi Allahu demon Hamidah. The whole Masjid say

00:18:51 --> 00:18:56

00:18:57 --> 00:19:09

I will say maybe 100 Woman No children. Nobody's running around. Can you talk about salehoo Anna Masjid go there because that people don't come because they know what how long he pray tight second.

You know what comes to my mind?

00:19:32 --> 00:19:33

Why he can do it? I cannot.

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


00:19:36 --> 00:19:53

What is the difference? You're telling me I don't know the Quran. Somebody will say open the Quran in front of me. I don't know if the Quran was in front of me. I know he's very well half of but open the Quran front of you and read it. He has the hammer, because he put it he said the note.

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

In the second row called second day I went and he was starting sought to enhance it

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

swartland hammer is very challenging in every bit you can say. And he finished it completely Mundaka again we are now we are used to this. So after he finished, he sat and he said My plan was not to finish or to an arm and one little car.

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

Yeah, because the second he did have a lot of louder.

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

He said My plan was not to finish.

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

Um, but Subhan Allah, the baraka for Atlanta. I just kept reading

Federalist five, he finished by four

00:20:46 --> 00:20:47

starts at 12

00:20:50 --> 00:21:13

What is this and then he was telling us one day I was in Medina. And I had really back pain. And I put the like, a belt around me and I said, I am gonna sit and I said, No, no, let's get the chair. Let me stand up. And then if I get tired or back pain, and I said you're alone by the blessings of solitude. I am going to start reading he said I finished online and I was standing

00:21:16 --> 00:21:22

time time management and Allah will ask us Shiva who females now what did you do with your time?

00:21:54 --> 00:22:33

We need to practice it. We need to practice it. If you saw others what I say to myself. If someone can do it, we can do it. Allah didn't give that share. Five hearts or seven eyes were three legs.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:48

See when Allah is the focus the time is not an issue when Allah has loved the focus or the less focus thus what happens

00:24:49 --> 00:24:51

numbers seven I think Am I right

00:24:54 --> 00:24:58

seven that's what I have here. Yeah cuz I now back to Salah.

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


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

to solder

00:25:02 --> 00:25:05

when you are upset or sad

00:25:06 --> 00:25:18

or not going through a good day, if you make wudu and go or it's time for Salah and you did your solder and when you left from the solder you're feeling better your heart is silent.

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

Salah May Allah Fontana give us this sada is an

00:25:26 --> 00:25:29

medication Allah gave us to feel better.

00:25:31 --> 00:25:44

And medication Allah gave us to feel better we don't look at so now this way we look at Salah as a burden. And even in the non Arab world they call it reading Salah what is reading Salah is not a book

00:25:47 --> 00:25:55

and a one never said the Quran surah in the Quran. He never said read the casada you go and look in the old translation. What did he say? Our team was

00:25:57 --> 00:26:12

performed Saina do sada perform, you know perform if you're a public speaker, people train you to perform and they give you 1234 performance and what does Allah wants in my performance? What's my heart?

00:26:13 --> 00:26:22

He does you know I mean this is beautiful about so that when I learned this y'all Allah what happened to me. And this is actually it's a hadith of Roswaal risottos. When we say Allahu Akbar,

00:26:24 --> 00:26:29

they say Allah is in front of you now again, in a way, we don't know how

00:26:30 --> 00:26:32

he is in front of us listening to us.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:42

The moment you start thinking of something else, Allah move away and says, Where did you go to something better than me?

00:26:44 --> 00:26:47

Isla in LA hydro mini Where did you go?

00:26:48 --> 00:27:02

The job, the thinking the people the money, whatever you know, we all we all. Now we cannot be 100% Focus otherwise we're going to be angels. But at least if this comes to my mind, I'll bring myself back

00:27:04 --> 00:27:16

so sada for me should be the recipe the medication, the friend I call, I want to vent you know we all say this. I didn't mean to I just want to vent and I say go and ventola

00:27:17 --> 00:27:19

event to Allah, he listened

00:27:20 --> 00:27:52

and he will make you feel better believe me. So sign up for that person is the place where all the worries and the sadness will go away and he feels in it is the freshness or the coolness of the eye as a Roswaal as Otto Sam said, with God that Cora tiny few sada and it was made to me that my happiness and coolness of my eyes is in solder, you have to make a dua in this Allahumma gel what I need for solder your Allah make solder

00:27:53 --> 00:28:02

an act that will make me feel good, as simple as this. Make a dua for yourself. You know what I say? You deserve it.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:15

You deserve it, I just stopped working for it. Meaning I deserve which meaning it's possible. And why not, but I'm not working for it. It's not a priority. I want to change this.

00:28:16 --> 00:28:21

Number eight, which you said it I think earlier in life to run the club. They're always in a state of the

00:28:23 --> 00:28:37

state of victory when humans made this dua your state of decay when you felt bad because you said this or did this and said Your law please make it easy. You're in a state of victory when you come in here and says your law make me grateful for having this beautiful place. You are in

00:28:39 --> 00:29:21

your in vehicle when you went out and as you're pulling your car back, somebody else is pulling the car back and you stopped and gave them the way and you said you're Allah. I did this for you. I want to see my my reward and the Day of Judgment. You're in Victor. Did you get it is not the could always you're single doing a car. People it's not realistic. You are here in the masjid, again here in the masjid. And you're in dhikr of Allah. As I said, At dawn, you are listening and you're saying the same thing. You are in between they're done and they are either praying or making or reading Quran or doing or you show someone you came in here and you saw somebody, for example, needs help

00:29:21 --> 00:29:48

looking for a chair you run and get the chair. They didn't ask you. You run and bring the chances you're upbeat. I did this because you talk to me when I make the life easier of somebody, you will make my ACULA easy. That's that's dhikr of Allah. Are you all with me? It's a it's a part of my life. The Dick is part of my life. Everything I do is connected with Allah and I'm speaking to him.

00:29:50 --> 00:29:52

And may Allah give us this your A B I mean,

00:29:53 --> 00:29:59

number nine, and I think this is the last one here. Yeah, it's usually to 12 but here in the book they put only nine

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

Number nine is you don't worry about the you did it you worry about you did it perfectly. Any act of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala you don't worry about hamdulillah Salah Al Hamdulillah I prayed humbly I fasted Hamdulillah I controlled my tongue Hamdulillah I didn't answer for example, you're going to ask yourself perfection. The Muslim is a perfect man or a woman of perfection with Allah. We want everything perfect in dunya

00:30:31 --> 00:30:53

but we don't worry about perfection after true or false. How many of you wants to have a house owns the house? If you order the audit, you always wanted to show me ads or the young people you all want right? It's a huge dream in California. True to own your own house. And you don't want just a two bedroom apartment. Yeah, at least your be three bedroom. Right? Nothing wrong with that Khaled.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

Why not enough?

00:30:58 --> 00:31:18

Why not an Akela why I hear from people let me get to know Allah Karim. Why now ally I want Jannetty from dos and the biggest castle in Jannah like I wanted here, but doesn't come free of charge. Nothing comes free of charge. Do you get a house here free of charge? Somebody is just going to call him says you know what? Oh, guess what you have a house. I wish

00:31:19 --> 00:31:21

you're gonna say this is spam.

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

So here you go. You worry about not only doing it but the quality. This is the difference between you and me and me and you. You will be in the your neighbor would be a Roswaal a saw to a Salaam and I will be struggling in the first level of Jana. But we both prayed.

00:31:41 --> 00:32:22

We both said that you don't hate Allah, we both fasted Ramadan, what is the difference is that quality is the person who stand up and pray that say the man who just I shared with you is the same that when I pray or shorter, I do two minutes is the same reward. Of course, it will be higher. So pay attention to the quality. We worry about the quality of everything in life. Or we don't worry about the quality of the deeds of accuracy. And we need and this is something for everybody. We need to help each other to do this. And I say this always to people Shavon is very active, or my neffs is very active. Don't be number three.

00:32:23 --> 00:32:42

On the contrary, I want you to help me to go against my nerves, and I want you to help me to go against a fine. Don't tell me it's okay. No, I don't want someone to tell me okay, because my nerves is already saying okay. For 10 people are saying, Okay, I want somebody looked at me and says, Brady, is that it?

00:32:43 --> 00:33:12

That's it? Is that what you can do? You do everything perfect. And then when it comes to Allah that what you can do, I want that person. I want someone to wake me up. I don't want somebody to just put down for me and says you're okay. Mashallah. Because that's what I say to myself. Are you all with me? This is how we change. When we really care about each other. I remember very well, it was one of the really statement that affected me was a mother actually begging her son to wake up for flutter.

00:33:14 --> 00:33:16

And she said, I said this to her.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:18

I said

00:33:21 --> 00:33:23

if I remember what what did she say?

00:33:27 --> 00:33:40

Oh, I asked her. I said you wake him up. Did he wake up? She said no. I said what did you do? She said I thought and then I was upset the mother? And she said

00:33:41 --> 00:33:47

I said to Allah I am not going to say anything, because I don't want him to answer me badly.

00:33:48 --> 00:33:54

And then he will go under aku he will go under not treating parents well. So I kept quiet.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:21

She cares about the law. She cares about the sun that he didn't wake up now she gonna go and keep she knows he has a temper also the sun. I know the family. But this is a person who is what, again, focused on. This is all the true heart. If you're going to leave today with one word from everything we talked about. True heart is the heart that is focused on Allah.

00:34:22 --> 00:34:24

inward and outward.

00:34:25 --> 00:34:38

inward and outward. And when I say this, remind myself before everyone when we are all seeing what is happening in Gaza. Has anyone asked himself or herself as say why not me?

00:34:40 --> 00:34:41

Why I am not

00:34:43 --> 00:34:45

why I'm sitting here in the comfort.

00:34:46 --> 00:34:50

We always say why not? Why me when something not good happened to us right?

00:34:51 --> 00:34:53

But why not me?

00:34:54 --> 00:35:00

That's because for the Allahu Allah and that's because of the grace of Allah upon me and you not because

00:35:00 --> 00:35:14

We are special that people have result my nose is way more special from what we have seen. And may Allah lift all the difficulty they are going through, so called mousseline memorize this start by one

00:35:15 --> 00:35:35

you you I wouldn't say perfect but it became a habit moves to the second move to the third if you fail don't give up keep going keep asking Allah keep asking a lie in one of the drawers I can't remember who taught me and I always say to all your ability and certainly done a seated your Allah don't forget get to me when I forget you.

00:35:36 --> 00:35:40

Because if Allah doesn't forget me, he'll bring me back he'll pull me

00:35:41 --> 00:36:16

I forget him we all forget dunya takes us but when he does not give up on me, and when he doesn't forget me you will bring me back. Like the young man I told you in the plane. Oh, this is amazing idea. I'm gonna write a book about this. So how Allah operated Subhanallah so don't give up on yourself. And keep working on your relationship with Allah. Keep working on your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala why do we get sick if we were born? As we said in the beginning, we are born with the pure heart of a baby.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:28

Why do we get this is the Hadith you all have to remember how the Hadith and Khalifa denoting a man Are they familiar man? Just so you know is the Sahaba one known companion but he's has a special character

00:36:30 --> 00:36:47

who is the only companion His name is Hollyford Maria man, the only companion only not as I must say no more none of those are soiree salatu salam entrusted him with the names of the hypocrites and Medina

00:36:48 --> 00:36:56

that After Roswell you saw to Ceylon died save no Amana used to go to him and say by Allah is my name in the list.

00:36:58 --> 00:36:59

say number one

00:37:01 --> 00:37:51

is Pamela Shaw. He said the following on Roswell you saw two Salam said the following. Why do we get sick? The answer is this hadith. Give me your heart all of you. Now Satan Arab Enoch tries the Torah don't fit another club. Another clue. Cardale has a three year old and your older temptations. This is not trial this temptations. I like it. I love it. The usual temptations will be presented to the human being heart like an IED. Matt is woven. Stick by stick. Have you ever knit any of you knitting? Right one by one to make a whole big huge blouse you start with one knit knit every time you knit or you see someone knitting remember this hadith. That's how you live it

00:37:52 --> 00:38:05

old and older. Let me finish the Hadith and I'll explain it to you becomes be the ly easy. For a Jacobina Sri Maha Nikita tree he looked at his shoulder, any heart that will accept this temptation.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:57

It will be imprinted in the heart. One by one imprinted in the heart a dark or a black spot, one by one till the heart heart data Odle woman and Cariloha look at the three he looked at and baseball and the one who rejected the temptation. A wide to spot is going to be implanted in the heart. Hector Odle Kaluga Allah Kobane to this is going to continue in the morning in the evening last year today, tomorrow, continue. Then the heart will become one of two hats that are Odin Kurume and our Caliban, Caliban S word, a black heart, a black dust colored like a vessel. Albin S word and this is very sophisticated, the Arabic word marimba and Kuzey Muda. Korea,

00:38:58 --> 00:39:23

the heart will become black. Think of it vase, cup glass, right? Dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, you look at that, and the glass is black. And he said, What is the sign? I'm not going to look at the heart and sunblock. What is going to be was he is going to be exactly like a cup like a glass upside down.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:29

Not recognizing good and not rejecting evil.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:56

And the opposite when the temptation is being presented, and I'll share with you a couple of examples, but let me make sure you all understood that one there is temptations has been presented you rejected it. White dot white dot wider because temptations daily, if not every hour, if not every minute. Daily, daily daily, the heart becomes white,

00:39:57 --> 00:39:57


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


00:40:01 --> 00:40:10

yeah, we're gonna get Lattimore who fitna once the heart becomes white, no temptation, we'll get into you anymore.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:15

Are you all this is in Muslim? What does this mean? Now? Let's live it.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:21

Who can give me an example? Real example from daily life? Think of something this morning.

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


00:40:25 --> 00:40:33

Anybody? Really? What is this? You have no temptations at all. Really? Marshall?

00:40:34 --> 00:40:40

No temptations. I dumped it. The problem is, if you didn't know it was temptation, that's a disaster.

00:40:42 --> 00:40:45

Temptation. And usually temptations is in the negative

00:40:47 --> 00:40:50

quotation and it's a negative way. Yes.

00:40:52 --> 00:40:53

I can't hear you.

00:40:56 --> 00:40:57

Really wanted to play this.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:08

So somebody is talking to me in a insulting way. And I really wanted to respond. And then I kept it. Okay, that's fine. But I'm talking about bigger temptations.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:21

Have you that level your canvas, let them skate up for for July. And finally they sleep after fajr. But let them get up for Fajr temptations.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:37

This is a high level and I'm talking about basics basics. And I don't have a hard disk called Salim yet. So too much food or sleep after further. I am not I am still struggling. What is temptation?

00:41:41 --> 00:42:03

No, no, no. Just a second, nothing. The phone is not always temptation. All of us half of what we do is on the phone. So you turn the phone and you really wanted to check. Let's say what's happening in Gaza. Is that anything wrong with it? Nothing. What is the easiest way? I don't want to go into news. Let's go on Instagram. And let's see what people posted. Your near.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

So you want what usually happens?

00:42:08 --> 00:42:09

You start crawling.

00:42:10 --> 00:42:13

And every scroll is a temptation.

00:42:16 --> 00:42:22

Because in between every or two or three about other causes or about whatever you're looking for an ad comes up.

00:42:23 --> 00:42:51

Right and not always haram ads about something to buy. It's a temptation. I don't need it. I don't have the money. I'm in debt. Right. Or it's something haram period. So what are you going to happen now? The heart are now your knitting? Are you all with me? Let's think So now, the thread is there. The thread is that what you're seeing? What is my response? I kept

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

reading or I kept looking that I don't I saved it. Let's I don't I forwarded your heart's absorbed

00:43:00 --> 00:43:01


00:43:03 --> 00:43:11

versus I looked but then I said no, no, no, no, no no. This is not gonna I shouldn't do this. And moved.

00:43:12 --> 00:43:18

rejected it. Did you are you all with me? Rejected now it's a white spot. Don't justify it.

00:43:20 --> 00:43:36

Don't say it is okay. I say this to myself. It is not okay. I would love to say okay, but it is not because that's the sequence are you now you know what is the sequence because sometimes this is what I hear from many people. Don't make it too complicated. What did I do is just a one thing. The one thing is a black dot.

00:43:38 --> 00:43:44

And the black dot will open the door for another black dot. You know why? Because how long is beautiful

00:43:46 --> 00:43:48

and how long would you like it? And how long is easy?

00:43:49 --> 00:43:53

Why I'm saying this is not my word. That's what shape on promised Allah.

00:43:54 --> 00:43:56

Level. Zenon ninang Phil.

00:43:57 --> 00:44:08

I'm going to beautify this earth for them. While we are normal domain and I am really low down on inlay by the coming home and more glossy except those who are truthful.

00:44:09 --> 00:44:33

So when he made a promise in front of Allah, that's what happens to you in many ways YT and nonland been a de Omen curfew on a man and I'm going to come from the front or from the back from the right from the left. What I tend to do with a long shakily majority of them are ungrateful. So two things you take with you from this hadith know what temptation is. Don't say it is okay.

00:44:34 --> 00:44:42

It has sequence on the heart. Everything is first internal, then it shows up external. And number two,

00:44:43 --> 00:44:48

rejected, rejected as much as you can you turn to Allah says Allah make it easy.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:57

The best way to not fall into temptations, you know what? You ask a lot to make you hated.

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

Right. I had somebody the other day says, Oh, I hate chocolate. And I was like, What a lucky person you are.

00:45:06 --> 00:45:08

You really don't like chocolate she said.

00:45:10 --> 00:45:19

So this person, that chocolate is not a temptation. But the majority of us, chocolate is temptation.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:29

It's not haram, I'm just giving you examples. So what I don't want to eat chocolate, I said, Yeah, Allah removes the love of chocolate from my heart, then it's not a temptation.

00:45:30 --> 00:45:38

So pay attention, as probably the books that many of you, this is actually what it is sins as sequences. This is one of them.

00:45:39 --> 00:46:11

When I disobey Allah, and I succumb and surrender to the temptation, one dot, and think of that beautiful glass crystal that Allah gave me when I was born, and I gradually gradually gradually needed dirty toilet becomes completely black, and I didn't care about any opening and cleaning, cleansing. This is a cleansing, step four is cleansing. Salah is cleansing, crying, begging, Allah is cleansing.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:14

So now we know why the hearts become sick.

00:46:15 --> 00:46:26

And the problem is, many of us, even society, justify it, justify temptations. It's okay, what is wrong with that?

00:46:29 --> 00:46:38

And we apply it to our youth. And one yes, one, okay. leads to another. Okay, which leads to another okay. Are you already?

00:46:40 --> 00:46:53

We really need each individual. And by the way, I'm glad Allah made me remember this. When we speak about Teskey you never look at what I'm saying. Never think of someone you know.

00:46:54 --> 00:47:22

Then you missed it. All this is about you, as an individual about me. I'm not gonna say Oh, I know that person. Don't worry about that person. You don't know what they did after they made the mistake. They probably wouldn't be in front of me way ahead of me and Jana, and I'm looking, when we talk about Teskey we talk about ourselves, me, am I that person? Am I that person when temptations comes the biggest temptations for us woman is what

00:47:23 --> 00:47:24

is talking

00:47:25 --> 00:47:26

is talking to

00:47:28 --> 00:47:30

one person start talking and on.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:46

And especially if what they are saying that person, I don't love what I don't like or I'm jealous of her or him and they start backbiting the scheme honey in my ear. That's a temptation.

00:47:47 --> 00:47:55

I didn't think that it is disobedient to Allah supplied hamdulillah I'm not the only one who think of her this way is wholly justified.

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

And I go on and on and a black dot and a black dot and a black.so Our goal, my goal, your goal be vanilla is what is number one, I identify the temptations. I know this is I shouldn't do a number two and you have to ask Allah to give you the strength. The strength, it's extremely, it's not easy. As easy said it's not easy on daily basis. And second is to give me the strength to stay strong and defend myself. protect myself push away these temptations. You reach a point when you're done. Policy reach a point like somebody who exercise you see still people they exercise exercise exercise now for them exercise is part of their life. They can stop don't worry about them.

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

That's what we need to eat.

00:48:52 --> 00:49:02

So remember this and may Allah subhana wa Tada give us I'm going to quickly just give you headlines because of the time there is four major poisons of the heart.

00:49:04 --> 00:49:14

Four major poisons of the heart and the the whole amount of Teskey they call it for dual meaning excess number one is access talking.

00:49:16 --> 00:49:17

Access to

00:49:18 --> 00:49:19

access eating,

00:49:21 --> 00:49:23

access interaction with people

00:49:24 --> 00:49:27

and excessive sleeping or excessive sleeping.

00:49:28 --> 00:49:42

These four kills the heart, make it very weak, cannot identify with temptations, let alone fight the temptations too much talking. How do you define too much talking?

00:49:43 --> 00:50:00

Showing too much talking. Too much eating too much interaction with people and too much steeping. Quickly what is too much talking. I love this. I think it's a statement to say no Vallejo he said whenever you want

00:50:00 --> 00:50:02

to talk, don't talk.

00:50:03 --> 00:50:10

And whenever you don't feel like talking talk, you will be in the right balance. You know when you say

00:50:11 --> 00:50:13

I have to go and tell her

00:50:14 --> 00:50:21

don't because you're going to be on an doesn't doesn't even bite biting football sometimes even terabytes too much.

00:50:22 --> 00:50:28

And when you say how are you? I'm fine. I just don't feel like talking talk, because you're not going to talk too much.

00:50:30 --> 00:50:37

One second, too much eating. What is too much eating that's gonna blow you up.

00:50:38 --> 00:50:41

That's gonna blow you up. So a man came.

00:50:43 --> 00:50:52

It was a hustler? bossley I think or it hasn't been it, I don't remember. And it hasn't was eating. So another man came to visit him and said come and join.

00:50:53 --> 00:50:57

And he said, Oh no, I just ate the Thai cannot eat anymore.

00:50:58 --> 00:51:04

He said Subhan Allah, I believe or eat so he cannot eat anymore.

00:51:07 --> 00:51:08

Too much eating.

00:51:10 --> 00:51:22

And you all know the Hadith 1/3 1/3 1/3 I don't know how many of us applied too much food and then scholars of Teskey tells you the best way to do this is to start fasting.

00:51:24 --> 00:51:31

Everyone talking about 16 hour fast you know, Mediterranean diet to all of us like Subhan Allah Subhan Allah.

00:51:33 --> 00:51:48

Fast minimum Monday interesting. tusky three days a week is not three days a month is hard to change you unless you have never done it before then yes, start by three days of the month, but graduate quickly. Minimum is Monday interesting.

00:51:50 --> 00:51:53

Because once you start fasting gonna eat class

00:51:54 --> 00:52:05

in general, and your desire for the food will be killed here. What you want is the desire of the temptation to be controlled. You don't want to die of hunger, if you want it controlled.

00:52:06 --> 00:52:17

You don't I was like okay, I need a coffee. I remember one time one of the teachers I said it was 10 o'clock and during the lecture and I said can I get you a tea? And he said 10 o'clock? Why'd Why do I need a tea

00:52:20 --> 00:52:20


00:52:21 --> 00:52:22

for us

00:52:23 --> 00:52:31

everybody's getting their cup of tea or coffee. Why? Because everybody else is doing it because people are making million dollars of these coffees

00:52:32 --> 00:52:34

and are falling in that trap

00:52:35 --> 00:52:45

not as a Muslim not as a person who wants to go to Allah Allah city and have a serene and I'm cutting the coffee all the time. Six or $7

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

per day

00:52:48 --> 00:52:49

so less food

00:52:50 --> 00:52:55

that's why I am not in favor of you know having food in the massage.

00:52:57 --> 00:53:09

No, you do it every now and then beautiful social Ghana but not always because we need we need to we need to change and how we will change if everywhere we go feed our knifes

00:53:10 --> 00:53:18

so let's food practice fasting practice fasting split on these days very easy Subhanallah three

00:53:19 --> 00:53:20

days biggest problem

00:53:21 --> 00:53:23

this interaction with people

00:53:24 --> 00:53:26

the problem is when you know too many people

00:53:27 --> 00:53:30

and when your happiness is being with people

00:53:32 --> 00:53:34

then you are not connected with Allah.

00:53:35 --> 00:53:38

The person of a pure heart what time is also

00:53:41 --> 00:53:46

the 15th Okay, so we have to stop very quickly. The person who is in test skier

00:53:48 --> 00:53:52

you reach a point where you get choked there's too many people around you every day.

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

Because you're missing your private moment with a loss puntata

00:53:57 --> 00:54:12

less interaction not every invitation you have to go not every wording you have to attend to every whatever you have. Or every day let's go and have a coffee let's go to this. No learn to love you and spend time with you.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:26

And that's gradual will bring you met when I mean you I mean with nothing. You only and with a loss Pam Todd, let's just sleeping. They said the portion of pure Teskey will not need more than three four hours a day need

00:54:27 --> 00:54:37

physicians we all say eight hours a day. Right? And we had this discussion they said yeah but it's not eight hours continuous in the night. This is going to kill the heart

00:54:38 --> 00:54:59

that you're the person of tusky has to be up before Fajr and then if you feel tired, your body needs your to sick whatever then you take a nap during the day as a Roswaal is Otto surrounded by So may Allah subhanaw taala teachers again as I said in the beginning I just literally gave you just an overview. Overview This is usually a long course we do it for hours we do

00:55:00 --> 00:55:31

For days we do it for days actually. So may Allah subhanaw taala. You did that on your supplement diva when about in about in resubmission Allah may Allah subhanaw taala show was truthful as truthfulness and chose falsehood as falsehood help us to follow the truth and help us stay away from falsehood, along with Elohim. The fusina Toccoa was Akia and the high Romans entitlements Acharya Allah give our naps, the taqwa the pure taco that pleases you and purify our neffs the way that pleases you, Europe yummy. We can take maybe Coakley question.

00:55:32 --> 00:55:42

Yes, please. So, remember in the beginning, we talked about, for example, the thoughts the emotions and desires then further along.

00:55:43 --> 00:56:21

What happens if, for example, you have the thought process, but you have the feelings, and the other day actually have them fighting, that's good, that's a good sign, your heart, your your heart is. So what happens if you have a feeling towards Allah but you also have a feeling toward something else or somebody else is the feeling towards somebody else is bringing you closer to Allah. Perfect. If you're feeling towards anything person or thing is taking you away from Allah percent of Teskey doesn't want it. I had a friend who said she said, I promised Allah 1015 years ago, anything that will take me away from you take it out of my heart. She made this dua to her. So

00:56:23 --> 00:56:28

what I meant like specifically, for example, like your mind, you believe that for her, for example,

00:56:29 --> 00:57:01

don't kill people, for example, and stuff like that. But then your emotions, you still have that fear, you're still struggling, you're not you have the two forces in the heart, one pulls you to Allah and one pulls you away, you need to work on this one. Usually the best way to work on this one is strengthen this one, strengthen the good one. So the good one is strong, like you're fighting with somebody, like two people are rustling who were when the stronger one, right? So you need to strengthen the good side in you, all of us. And then this way, the evil side will be weaker.

00:57:03 --> 00:57:07

Any other question from the sisters? Yes, please.

00:57:10 --> 00:57:11

I'm sorry, I can barely hear.

00:57:15 --> 00:57:22

You take the eight hours of Seuss. The eight hours of sleep is when people focus only on the body.

00:57:23 --> 00:57:44

Now people are talking about mindfulness, he starts hearing this last couple of years mindfulness of body mind to soul. Right? When I feel when I focus only on the body, the body will need eight hours. So they say even in the beginning, scholars have test gear. If you if you have met them, they don't sleep more than four or five hours a day period. Period.

00:57:45 --> 00:58:09

They say even if your body then it is not a one shot. You don't go to bed at 10 and you wake up at six unless sick or something but it's not your norm. To go to bed at 10 You're up by two or three. Then the three hours that you need, you will make it as short naps and the more you are connected with Allah in acts of worship, the body will need less sleep. You all witnessed this when you go to Makkah

00:58:10 --> 00:58:18

right? What happens? What happens when dead tired to jet lag? Right? Very crowded all this but you are not hungry for two

00:58:19 --> 00:59:01

or three o'clock Aren't you tired? Nananana Subhanallah I go first off, I come out with energy. You all feel that? There is something called spiritual need and power. And we don't have that. We don't work on that. The spiritual power gives you wonder makes you not only feel good, but it makes you strong. I've seen it with the people of Huzar again, they have it because they are connected with Allah. So when they say things you wonder how did they say these things? When they act this way? How are they a human being like you and me because the spiritual and by the way, this is not the day you get the problem you're going to start change No no no. To have roughly the life of the heart you

00:59:01 --> 00:59:20

already have you should know Allah at time of ease like now. And when the time of need comes in, he would know me and He will save me. So when science say aid, yes, but scholars have tusky say it is not continuously because it's well makes the body lazy and the heart much weaker.

00:59:23 --> 00:59:27

Anyone else? Anybody from upstairs

00:59:28 --> 00:59:40
