We're in sha Allah be in India, we're going to continue series we started about three weeks ago.

00:00:58--> 00:01:38

And the subject is extremely important. And the reason I am saying it's extremely important because we hear it, we see it, but mainly we see the result of it happening very frequently and hap happening almost on daily basis. Either you hear it or people say it to you ask you or actually you see the result of it and they tell you the reason I'm doing this is because my email is weak, my faith is getting weaker, or it is weak or I feel it is going weaker. Or I feel I don't have

00:01:39--> 00:02:30

this this connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it's very common, very common and any Subhanallah it is extremely scary, but it's true. It can happen to anybody. No one is immune. And no one think that I don't think it's happening to me I hear it's happening to somebody else but it's not gonna happen to me Subhan Allah, it is not because of this is not because of my singing or, or it's basically what Saraswati saw to sit down, taught us in more than one Hadith Subhan Allah in many Hadees I'm just going to quote a couple of them. And one of them is the meaning of the hearts, hearts is in between the hands of Allah subhanahu wa taala This is beyond our imagination, all of

00:02:30--> 00:02:52

these hearts. Everyone is like a one heart between the hands or the mean that right hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he turned them the way he went. So when my heart tone, what does it basically mean? It moves away from Allah, or it can come close to Allah. And this is why Allah so Allah has salatu salam

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


00:02:55--> 00:03:45

when he was asked by almost selama, his wife, what was the most frequent? Or she actually said the most frequent Doha prayer? I heard the roswaal salatu salam saying is Yama hollywell Kullu Sabbath kalbi? Allah Deena, all you the one who turned the hearts, keep my heart steadfast on your deen on your religion? And what does it mean when my heart stays steadfast, which means my email is strong and steady. And it is, at least there is a minimum that my demand should never go lower. Having said that, as I said in the beginning, it definitely changes and goes lower, and lower and lower. And we have covered some of it two weeks ago, three weeks ago, actually. So I am going to remind you all

00:03:45--> 00:04:30

myself number one of what we discussed, and then I'm going to come into so what we're going to talk about, how do I know my email is weak? What will happen? What will I see or feel, or what people will see? Number two, why. And we're going to cover this too. And then we'll come to one treatment today because I want to chart law, make this spend more time on the treatment. And as a physician, I always say to the patients you are here so I can pay in sha Allah by Allah is will make you feel better. So I need to know what is the problem, and then we will give you the treatment. And the same thing here. The same thing here is there is a disease, a disease of the heart, usually an E man

00:04:30--> 00:04:53

faith is in the heart. So it's a disease of the heart. It's called weakness of my Eman And then what is the size? Why? Why did this happen? why it's happening, and what should I do and we're going to come to treatment one by one, and inshallah, it may take us two or three or more of these programs. The whole idea is that we learn it. So number one,

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

what is the signs and I'm going to go quickly over these. What are the signs

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

That's my faith, my email is getting weaker. How do I know? And this is how it is number one, number one,

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

you feel, I feel, we feel our

00:05:14--> 00:06:03

ability to send, or desire to send or fall into sinning is much easier. They call it in Darby Lupo, Phil mahasi. You basically or myself or anyone, again, no one is immune, we find ourselves seeming easily, meaning I find myself missing one silo easily before it used to be a huge problem. Now it's becoming easier. I used to, if something come in, show up on my screen, or it's hard on something I shouldn't look, I used to say immediately Lw stuff your law, and then I'm not seeing it. Now I feel like it's okay, let me just have a look. So singing becomes easier than be beware,

00:06:04--> 00:07:04

take take heed, the man is getting weaker. number one. Number two, my heart is harder. Meaning I don't feel I My heart is there usually insula, or I don't see or feel my heart cry, or I cry easily. When I listen to the Quran around I don't even cry. When I listen to the Koran, or when I am being admonished, or I read something reminds me of the hereafter. Nothing. My heart is hard when I see a scene that for example, when I see injustice, my answer is there is injustice all over the world. I don't, I can't change it, but at least I feel. So when the heart becomes harder, that's a sign my email is weak. Number three, I do not perform the acts of worship the obligatory one. And I always

00:07:04--> 00:07:28

refer to Salah because that's the communist thing. And the most important thing, I feel that I am lazy, I am not going, I don't feel I want to go and meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then it is done quickly. I don't even feel or know what I did. Two minutes, and I am done. So I don't do the acts of worship with perfection.

00:07:29--> 00:07:40

And this also comes together is I am lazy in performing the acts of worship, I postponed I delay, I'll do it tomorrow.

00:07:41--> 00:08:41

versus if it's a something for dunya, I will do it very quickly. And I am so focused on it. So I sing easily. My heart is hard. I do not do the acts of worship with perfection. And I am lazy in performing this also is very interesting. And this is external. And this is not related to the acts of worship. I feel. I don't feel well, internally. I wouldn't I don't want to say depressed but I feel down. I don't feel I've interest. And I feel like there's something not to write, I cannot put my hands on it. Basically there is nothing, I just don't feel the usual way I am. Go and check the email. Basically the email, faith is reality of it is a connection with Allah subhanaw taala. I

00:08:41--> 00:09:38

believe in him, I believe in his book, I believe this life is a form for the hereafter. And so when this is weaker, my relationship with Allah is weaker. And I feel something is missing. I just don't cannot put my hands on it. And this is why one of the times when a Sahaba companion came Tora Swati salatu salam and asked him or told him that I feel down the meaning of it. I feel down I don't feel well. You know what he advised him say stuff a lot. ask Allah for forgiveness. Basically what this is that teaches me and you that when i sin, there is a sequences or these are consequences for selling. And the reason I'm sinning is because my email is weak. The more I sin, the more my email

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

is weak. So how do I rectify it, asking forgiveness from Allah, re establish the connection or establish the connection we have a class actually going on with us agenda Institute is about sins and the sequence consequences, what happens? How does it affect me and my family and when you

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

Look at that daily daily daily and you start connecting you will find you will find that this is related Subhan Allah, one of the signs again, my Eman is weak. When I read the Quran, when I read the Quran or I listen to the Koran or someone is reading the Quran in front of me, I nothing, I do not get affected. I don't if it's it's an amazing verse about the creation of Allah nothing. If I'm reading about the era, the hereafter nothing I just read it. This is a sign off my email, specially if I used to be different. Specially if I used to be different and now I meaning I used to read the Quran I feel it and I start thinking as Han Allah This is a beautiful while your law please protect

00:10:55--> 00:11:51

me and now nothing then that's a sign my email is weak. Another sign mighty man is weak is when I do not remember a law frequently. I do not remember a law breaker, whether it's inside solar, whether outside solar, whether it's I am reading Quran, I now I'm reading Quran muchless were saying usually any kind, any form of remembering Allah subhana wa tada I suffered a law, law, the whole nowhere quwata illa Billah when I see something beautiful, I see Subhan Allah, when I'm getting into my car Subhan Allah de Sahara, Lena hada glorify he who have facilitated this, any kind of remembrance of Allah, indicate my relationship with Allah strong, the less I remember him, the weaker my

00:11:51--> 00:12:48

relationship, the weaker my email. And we say this in our relationship with people. When you love someone, when someone is dear to you, you will remember him very free him or her very frequently, with a text message, you read what they wrote to you, you call them there's a there's a relationship. When there is no relationship that means that person is not very important to you, Allah Allah, Allah is more glorified. So when I do not remember how frequently my relationship has a problem, my connection has a problem. I need to take care of it. One of the signs, again, we covered off week Eman is I love to be recognized and show off. I like to be recognized. Whether I am doing

00:12:48--> 00:13:20

things for this life, whether even I'm doing in Islamic work, I like to be recognized and praised. And in a fight or something. If we used for it, I get upset. My relationship with a law is weak. I did not do that job for a law. And I'm waiting for him subpoena to reward me. Rather, I'm doing it for people. And I'm looking for people to praise me and I get upset. Hope of the whole showing off is a sign of weak ima

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

less capital again.

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

I sinned easily. My heart is hard. I am lazy in performing my act of worship.

00:13:33--> 00:13:41

Even when I do them, I don't do them to perfection. I do not get affected by reading the Quran at all.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

I love to be recognized and show off.

00:13:47--> 00:14:06

remembrance of Allah is minimum, remember and soft Allah is minimum. One of the signs. And this is very interesting is actually when I become so greedy, so greedy. And so keen on this life.

00:14:07--> 00:14:51

I hope dunya the love of dunya and I'm not saying we should hate the dunya the life we're living in. But when I saw much focus on it, and it becomes basically my only worry. And I get upset when I lose something from this slide but I do not get upset when I use something from our hero. And when I'm so greedy and collecting and I find very difficult to give and be generous that my Eman is weak. them and we all know this. This is a fact we live it but maybe we have not made the connection. Everybody in Ramadan is very generous. And that's probably why we see most of

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

the fundraising successful fundraising is actually in Ramadan because people in general all of us, myself included in

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

is very generous in Ramadan Why? Yes it is Ramadan But why? Because our Eman regardless who we are in Ramadan is higher. We're fasting. We're reading Quran when we're doing tarawih haven this year Subhan Allah in the COVID and we are at home and we didn't go to the massage we still still we did the toiling backhand we fasted Ratko Prater, we had the house, we felt different. Our Eman is higher were definitely much more generous Subhan Allah.

00:15:35--> 00:16:33

And one of the signs that a man is weak or weaker or getting weaker. We say things we don't do. You live in Amman, remettre, coluna, malata Paulo, or you believe in Allah said this sort of soft? Why do you say, what was that? That you don't do? One of the signs, my email is weak. When I start preaching, my family, my children, my spouse, my parents, and I don't do it. And my email is weak. My email is weak. One of the signs, one of the signs and actually everything I am saying and I'm sharing with you, the opposite is a good sign. Excuse me, the opposite is a good sign and the treatment in them to the treatment in them to one of the signs also when we start belittling good

00:16:33--> 00:16:34


00:16:35--> 00:17:27

when I start belittling good deed for example, somebody will tell you, right so, for example, somebody is telling you there is a fundraising, right? Or we are collecting $5 $5 right? For whatever the project it's higher. It's for Allah. You come and say $5 are not going to be in this project. It's only $5 No, I don't I'm not gonna be part I'll wait till there is a bigger project. You belittled or I belittled the little bit of generosity and Swati sought to sit down said the beautiful Hadith the meaning of his he says do not and I will say it and how to be clear on mineral Maru fishy Willow and tough river Willow and to frill mean Dell Wi Fi in a moose ducky. Hello, and

00:17:27--> 00:17:41

to kill him a hawk, we watch him. What is he saying? We're on to kill him. A Hawker B word, she can lay him on the sidewalk. What did he say? He said the following week. Don't belittle any good deed.

00:17:42--> 00:18:36

Don't want to belittle any good deed you do. even look at the good deed. And we never think of this, even if you are pouring water to someone who asked you for water. Or if you just need your friend, your brother or sister with a face with a happy face. So meeting someone with a happy face, it's a good deed, because you have made the person in front of you happy. Or if you are just putting a little bit of water and give it to that person or 40 or you know, either he or she even didn't ask, but you gave it to them. This is a good deed. Don't belittle it belittling good deeds. I don't see this as a big deal as a sign. My email is weak. And why is that? Because I am now remember what we

00:18:36--> 00:19:07

said in the beginning that the Eman the faith is there is a thermometer or it's the gauge of my relationship with Allah. So when I am doing a good deed, if I ma or I my relationship with Allah is a strong I am not looking at the good deed. I am looking at the one who I am doing the good deed for because I'm doing it for Allah. So I don't look at the $5 or the $1 I am looking at.

00:19:09--> 00:19:41

I am looking at and Kareem the generous who with a one or $5 what he will give me so never ever belittle and this is actually a very good news because this will make those of us who doesn't have doesn't have the especially these days people are going through difficult times. So don't belittle a good deed anything. Whether it is monetary, whether it is money, helping someone making someone happy. If I belittle good deeds, my email is weak.

00:19:42--> 00:19:50

What another sign of a weak email when I do not feel I have to work for this religion.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

I don't feel that I would ever keep ability I have I need to work for this religion. That's all

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

Law gave me

00:20:02--> 00:20:28

because this religion is not mine or yours. This is the moral law code of law. This is the guidance of Allah, this is his religion. When I want work for the dean, I'm not working for this organization or that or for this person or that I am working for him. So when I don't feel I have to do it, then my relationship with Allah is weak. Then my email is weak.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Very interesting sign of weak Amen.

00:20:35--> 00:21:27

Interesting sign of weak Eman externally, so far. Everything we are recovered except one is related to the religion itself. There is so one I mentioned and the other one I'm going to mention not related to the religion or act of worship. Number one when you feel down or when you feel not depressed, because again, depression is not a treatment by only increasing the email. Depression is a disease its needs treatment with it as we do with any other disease. There is connection with a law and our role here and reading Quran but when I feel I am just have have no interest. I just feel tired. There's something wrong with me. Check your email and your other sign another worldly sign of

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

weak Eman when I

00:21:30--> 00:21:37

when I am tested with a test when there is something around me that will

00:21:38--> 00:22:19

that is not the way I wanted. My reaction to it. overreacting. I get scared. I panic. overreacting. Now remember the word overreacting to actions to circumstances overreacting to circumstances reflects my connection with Allah is weak. My Eman is weaker. When I overreact. When I overreact doesn't mean I don't have feelings. It doesn't mean I am not gonna feel or cry or feel sad, but when I overdo it, when I overdo it, and this is when

00:22:20--> 00:22:24

Swami salatu salam, this heavy when he was

00:22:25--> 00:23:03

warm, walking by a graveyard, and he saw a woman crying, basically crying and wailing about a song she lost. She was at his graveyard. And you can imagine, this is really something hard. But it was not described in the hallway, but it looks like she was doing it loudly enough in the proper way. Saraswati psychosom looked at her, and he said, to CB or star j, say, Nadella. What the hero Joan and ask Allah to reward you for your calamity.

00:23:04--> 00:23:15

She immediately respond. And she said she didn't know he was a Rottweiler site or sir. And she said, stay away from me. You don't know what I am going through.

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

She didn't know it was him.

00:23:19--> 00:24:11

So I think you saw it was set out didn't say a word. He He continued walked away. The companions were with him one to her. And she and they told her this is Rasul Allah that He saw to us. She went Ryan to him right away and she said my heart if I didn't know you, and he responded No, as always miss beautiful way. And he said, A Sabra in the submitted hula patients in when you're one, you are first affected by calamity. The point I'm trying to make, when I overreact to things, as simple as I lost, not not a dear person, but I lost something materialistic, I was expecting a good news and I didn't come I was I missed a plane, I missed an appointment, something that we all go through. But

00:24:11--> 00:24:21

when I overreact, then my connection with a lot is weak. So what should i do when i these things happens? What did the roswaal so to a certain tortoise,

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


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

This is what we are supposed to say. Allah has decreed whatever Allah decree will happen. And other thing which we are taught to say, also Trudeau soiree sort of sinner. Alhamdulillah Allah Callaghan.

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

Praise to Allah in every situation. So overreacting, overreacting, I keep reminding It's over. It's not reacting. Reacting is normal. We're human, but over reacting way more than what is the norm response, then I need to go personally.

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

Don't say this to people, I need to go back and I say, Why did I respond in so much harsh way? What's happened to my email and other sign?

00:25:12--> 00:25:38

Too much argument, arguments. And you argue or I argue to make sure my point is right, is another sign of weak email, another sign of weak email, too much arguments, and even arguments, indeed, even arguments in religion too much. And I keep saying, till I prove I am right.

00:25:40--> 00:26:28

What I normally should say, bring my point. And if the people around me listened at how they didn't listen, Alhamdulillah you're blind me. And I say this in front of Allah, Allah knows, I tried my reason of discussing and bringing my point is not to show you I know more, or you know more, my point is to bring the truth. And if I was wrong, May Allah forgive me. And if I was right, Alhamdulillah but I don't have to prove it to people. Again, because I am connected with Allah, my focus is on him Subhana he knows I said it, he knows what's my intention. If people listened, I found the law. If they didn't, they didn't. So one of the signs of weak Eman, too much arguments,

00:26:28--> 00:26:30

too much arguments.

00:26:31--> 00:26:42

The landmark I call it of wiki man, in our daily life is too much attachment to this life.

00:26:44--> 00:26:56

Too much attachment and focus. And we are keen and collecting this life dunya material things. And we live as we are living here forever.

00:26:58--> 00:27:10

And we spend 80% 90% of our time focusing on this life, and maybe 10% maybe even less, thinking about the

00:27:11--> 00:27:22

woman higher to dunya ilimitado or what is life and loss of this and sort of what is life but they enjoyed the deceptive enjoyment.

00:27:24--> 00:28:02

Too much, too much I cry because I didn't get something I get upset because I didn't get something and all my focus all my energy. That doesn't mean we shouldn't live again. But we need the balance. And actually the older we get, the more test we are going the balance needs to be this way for the best we are going there almost every day and I'm sure all of you hear this somebody passed away someone died young or old. Too much, too much. Focus on this life. This comes with it another side too much focus on me.

00:28:03--> 00:28:22

The way I look my dress what I drink so particular where I live too much again, the word is too much because Ross Wallace or Tesla was asked about that. So he was asked by the Sahaba actually so some of us would like to dress well and look nice.

00:28:23--> 00:28:46

And he said Allah Jamil your Hebrew Gemma. Allah has beautiful Subhana love is your beauty. So looking nice dress well, but not extravagant, not in a competition that you are always the best. And if somebody does something or buy something, I need to go and get into the competition. sign off week, a month.

00:28:48--> 00:29:04

Now why the human gets weak Alhamdulillah Allah is putting Baraka in the time Why? The email gets weak, number one, number one, and I'll give you an example before I say the number one cause

00:29:05--> 00:29:15

what makes us gain weight. That's the communist thing everybody talks about what makes us gain weight? What makes us gain weight as we eat?

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

And where do we eat more usually, when we are most people.

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

When we are always people the people are usually when we are with people and everybody is eating we normally tend to eat more.

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

So what is it number one is the company What is my surroundings, my surroundings really affect my emotion and again I'm going to bring down a Milan when we all go to the masjid when we all together and we all do taraweeh together to ours. When we all listen to the Koran together, our emang gets stronger. opposite is true. So who are

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

Who are the surroundings? Who are the surroundings? Look at your day, let me look at my day, from the 24 hours, how many of that of these 24 hours, I spend it to strengthen my email,

00:30:17--> 00:30:33

meeting my environment, the messages I read, the people I follow the social media that I check the talk, I do. The phone call, the people I spend time with face to face, or on the net,

00:30:34--> 00:31:00

or this or these surroundings, remind me of Allah remind me of an era reminds me of being a better Muslim, or the other way around. So number one, when I see my email, and my faith is weaker, look at your surroundings. Change the surroundings, number one. Number two, who are the people that I look up to?

00:31:02--> 00:31:06

Who are the people I look around? And I say, I want to be like her.

00:31:07--> 00:31:25

I want to be like him. Who are these people? And these people tells me how strong my EMA if I want to be like saved now Omar would not have been like say no Rasool Allah hisar to Islam before Say no more, if I want to be, like saved now boubakeur.

00:31:26--> 00:31:58

But who are we looking up to, and I want to be like her. I want to be like him, Who are these people? Normally, to keep my image strong, I want to be around people. And I want to be talking with people who will look at me, and will say, that's it. You only do Salah on time. That's it, you only do two, especially these days, when the Winter is coming. And the night is much longer. You only do two extra Santa's you only fast Monday and Thursday.

00:31:59--> 00:32:06

You want people who are much up to you. So you can ascend and so you can get stronger,

00:32:07--> 00:32:24

not the other way around. Not the other way around. We want we look at the people who are better than us and dunia who have more, were prettier. And that will make us far away from a lot as also a software setup taught us taught us.

00:32:25--> 00:33:20

He said the meaning of look up to people who are better than you in religion. And don't look up to people who are better than you in dunya in this life, meaning materialistic and he gave the example. And he I'm sorry, he gave the reason and he said that by doing this looking up to people who are better than you in religion and look not looking up to people who are better than you in material will make you more grateful to Allah pantalla in what he gave you and the other way around will make you less grateful will make you less grateful. So look around you whether it is from the Sahaba whether from the companion of Ross what he thought was whether it is later or whether it's somebody

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

around you, you know,

00:33:22--> 00:34:20

say to yourself this is who I want to be like well that was a clear lie ahead and I do not praise anyone except Allah. However, I want to do what they are doing. She dressed beautifully in pleasing to Allah I want to be like her not the other way around. Look at her Mashallah she prays so beautifully and law with focus your Allah give me what you gave her or him Mashallah she memorized the hora I'm your long Give me what you gave her. So go and take a person she or he that they are much better than you in life in Dhoni I'm sorry indeed in religion and don't do the other way around. Number three reason the man gets weaker so it's number one is the environment. Number two,

00:34:20--> 00:34:25

who do I look up high to number three. Number three,

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

not learning about this religion. And if you have if you have been following us hamdulillah we have started this spots since COVID. Is started this is I call it one of the blessings of COVID with all the tests that it brought, that we start focusing specially publicly we always thought we always focus this before but publicly about Islamic knowledge specially for a woman and those of you who have been following us you have seen I spoke about it. We

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

I've had many guests about this, because the way that my email and my faith get stronger, when I spend some time daily learning about this Dean, specifically or specially learning, the the knowledge, and this religion that gets me closer to Allah, soft in my heart, purify my heart, teach me how to be a better human being and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is,

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

I think one of the main reasons, since we start

00:35:44--> 00:35:47

moving away from reading books,

00:35:48--> 00:36:42

to spending much more time on the social media, and social media in many other things. Our connection with the religion itself with the knowledge itself becomes weaker, and therefore our actions become weaker. So where do I start, and by the way, listening to these is beautiful, any lecture and program, absolutely. But you need to do something yourself also. So when you listen to a talk, take notes, go back to your notes, go go and say, Oh, this is a beautiful topic, I want to learn more put effort, my point I'm trying to make is when you put effort to learn, you will get way more benefit. So make it as one of my teachers use always to say this word, have a regular diet of

00:36:42--> 00:37:00

knowledge, he used to call this with this 20 years ago, regular diet of knowledge and he used to say the reason I said diet, because you need to have a beneficial knowledge of beneficial knowledge. So panela beneficial knowledge.

00:37:02--> 00:37:25

One of the, one of the reasons they eat man gets weaker, specially these days, when we are surrounded by people, not only they are not better than us, that they pull us. In fact, they are people who disobey Allah. And they make the disobedience natural, and normal. And what is the big deal?

00:37:27--> 00:38:10

natural and normal, what is the big deal, they talk about it, they they text you and remind you don't miss this program and that program, the the a thing, my relationship or their surroundings, when I am with them, I lose and I am not closer to a lot pantalla In fact, I am weaker surroundings, I cannot play emphasize and and we say this to our teenagers peer pressure. And it's so true. Peer pressure in every discipline, in every part is absolutely

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

valuable. And it is absolutely influential. Allah said this to Russell lasr to sell

00:38:19--> 00:38:41

that many of us read it on a Friday, while our men have a falling out elbow and the cleaner, whatever ha ha ha what kind of camera who do not follow. This is Torah, Swati Salatu, Ser to the Prophet, don't follow those who their hearts are, or his heart is

00:38:43--> 00:38:49

away from a law he gets from a law and follow his his or her own desire

00:38:50--> 00:39:15

follows their desires and their matters become shattered, meaning their religions is shattered. So if you have a company the reason my email gets weaker look at your company. Who are you spending time with? Who are the people who you consult who you talk to who they advise you. Are these people obedient to Allah or not

00:39:16--> 00:39:41

change your environment, change your environment. And one of the signs, one of the reasons not the signs one of the reasons my emang get weak. When I spend most of my time it's the same sign most of my time, not an act of worship of Allah Pankaj.

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


00:39:43--> 00:39:59

you probably going to ask this question you say but we have to work, right? This we have to pay the bills. We have to take care of our children. We have to take off our parents. Absolutely. But make it for our last panel what I had meaning I am

00:40:00--> 00:40:54

marking your law, I chose this work, this profession this job, but this is pleasing to you. This is Hello, this is lawful and I am doing it so you are pleased with me or law. See it renew your intention as we always remind ourselves, renew the intention. When you renew the intention and make it for Allah all the time, all the time, provided there is no harm. There is no anything not lawful in that act, then every action, every daily action will become an act of worship. So when I go to work, she or he, we go to work, and I say your law, I am going to work because I need to bring food on the table, I need to take care of my children so they are not in need of anyone. And this is for

00:40:54--> 00:41:31

you, your Allah. That's an act of worship. As long as my work is not on the expense of the obedience of the obedient act of a loss punctata I am not missing my signer and I am not disobeying Allah during the work. So one of the reasons my emang get weak when I am too busy for running after the rat race, we call it the riot race this life from morning to evening. We're running and running and running. Where are we going? Where are we ending? daily from morning to evening.

00:41:32--> 00:41:51

Take a break in between that's why Salah Subhan Allah, one of the amazing benefits of Salah prayer is that Allah pantalla forced us to take a break from the rat race and go to him

00:41:52--> 00:42:14

Subhan Allah, but how many of us take advantage of this. So too much dunya too much life too much. I want to collect I want to have more then mighty man we get weak as our Swati saw to set up in a beautiful Hadith he said, Teresa abdeen are dicer of the Dirham.

00:42:17--> 00:43:08

Loser is or cursed is the one who's a slave to under him the coin and a dino is like the Donald of that time. Cursed is the one who was a slave to the coin meaning money. He said deicer course is the one who was a slave. Look at the word he used slave. When I spend all my time collecting, collecting, I have Alhamdulillah I am not a need Alhamdulillah but I want more. And because I want more. This will take me away from my proper relationship with Allah my Eman gets weak and all the results we talked about, and our Swati site are set up in another beautiful Hadid. He said the meaning of if the son of Adam, she or he

00:43:09--> 00:43:20

were get were to be given one valley of gold, one valley of gold, he or she will ask for another one

00:43:21--> 00:43:40

will ask for another one and nothing will fulfill the desire for the mouth. He used he said the mouth of the son of Adam except the dust of Earth except the death the dust of the earth which means the grave.

00:43:41--> 00:43:50

The dust you know when when the human being dies, they put him or her in the grave. What do they cover them with? They cover them with dust.

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

And he said this meaning is we are keep running and if we have one we want to and if we have to go 123 and nothing will fulfill this desire fully accept the dust of the earth. So too much working for this life. distractions, so many distractions. Simply these distractions distracts us distract us not only from ourselves, but distract us from a loss pantalla number one, my emails get weak. I sin easily. I do not feel I want to worship Allah spawn Tada. I don't see sinning is a huge deal. I don't remember a law. I don't enjoy reading Quran all the signs we talked about.

00:44:38--> 00:44:50

Pay attention to how much of the day the 24 hours we have. We are in you are spending in collecting versus

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

collecting and increasing the relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and that include busy with work

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

busy with family busy busy. I'm not saying not giving them their right, but too much that it takes me away from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:45:11--> 00:45:19

one of the sign reasons my email my faith is weak because I think and you think we're going to live forever

00:45:20--> 00:45:24

and Allah subhanaw taala said this and so little ambia

00:45:26--> 00:45:50

the home yup kulu way a tomato where you will hear him will ml pacify alum, leave them, let them eat, let them enjoy, and let them think they will live forever. incessant hope, hope I am here. I start planning for the next 10 years. Allah knows if I'm living tomorrow.

00:45:51--> 00:46:15

This feeling that I am not going to die. We don't say it. But we act in this way. Makes me Makes my Eamonn weak. Because if I if somebody today Come to me or to you, and say Guess what? And Allah sent a message and he will say tomorrow, I am dying.

00:46:16--> 00:46:50

Tomorrow at four o'clock that Angel of Death is going to come and take you What do you think you and me will be doing? Are we going to be collecting? are we are we going to be worrying? Or we're going to be normally Doing what? starts catching up on everything we missed. And this is why we don't do this because we think we are living here forever. Darwin yaku where tomato where you will hear him will leave them let them eat and drink and enjoy and let them think they will live here forever.

00:46:51--> 00:46:54

I need to remind myself on Spanner Lily. Yeah. You know

00:46:56--> 00:47:13

how many times we are reminded that we are not staying here forever. And we forget. Somehow lon that's why we're Swati salatu salam said in heavy axial, whimsically Paddy mill is that remember? Plenty.

00:47:14--> 00:47:23

keep remembering the destroyer of joy. And they said what is it he actually said destroyer of joy is death.

00:47:25--> 00:47:56

destroyer Oh own joy is death. So one of the reasons my email and my feed gets weak is because I think I'm living here forever. And there's beautiful sayings I am going to share with you is four signs in the human being they say about Amina Sha for size for character is a sign of misery in the sight of a lot for sign of misery. What are these? Number one?

00:47:58--> 00:49:02

One I don't cry easily. Jordan it they say when the eye is dry, dry meaning I don't cry easily. My heart is hard. One, two, heart is hard. So one I don't cry. I listened the Quran I don't I see something I don't. to. My heart is hard. These are signs of misery. Three, I think I'm living forever. At four. So much keen on collecting in this life. These are for indication of misery. My emotion gets weak when I am too busy from morning to evening planning was sinking worrying until time nor time no break for the hereafter for the other life that I am going to be living there forever. Forever. Holiday nahi here they will be their eternal got to be I mean in Jana. So let us

00:49:02--> 00:49:12

remember when I am so much worried. And my Salah is two minutes and my planning and doing things hours and my email is absolutely weak.

00:49:14--> 00:49:55

One of the reasons my email gets weak because I eat too much. I sleep too much. I talk too much, interact too much. The man gets weaker, fast more. Remember a lot more, interact with people less and sleep less. And this is actually one of the four indications or it's a four pillars of the purification of the heart. How do I clean my heart? How do I purify my heart is actually the Ford less they call it and there is one more. One more you do more. The Ford less less food less.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

Less eating less sleeping

00:50:00--> 00:50:31

Less talking less interaction with people. Now this includes less texting, less spending time on social media, less posting, all these are interaction. This will give me more time, more time for the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the more I eat, the lazier I am, and new we all have felt this when we eat something we like and we eat it with vengeance, that when I stand up for sada I'm so tired and lazy.

00:50:33--> 00:50:41

So let's cut down on that. And we don't need to eat three meals a day. We don't have to eat three meals a day we eat when we are hungry.

00:50:42--> 00:51:36

Right, our soiree is awesome. The best creation and sad Heiser used to say, it used to be three days and nights. This house meaning the house for our Swati Sala to center, there is no fire in it. And we lived on the two and he said Alaska and the two black things, water and date, water, water and dates. So let's let's be less less. We are now living in a time, everything is more for us to strengthen our email, we need less of this life. Take what we need. Take what we need and use it for our last panel Tyler, but let's not use it against our relationship with the last panel with either last thing I will want to share with you where do we start? And this is I will share with you the

00:51:36--> 00:51:57

first one today and in sha Allah in the next week. I'm probably going to do it for two or three weeks, whatever Allah time gives us what is number one? Number one treatment to strengthen my email to strengthen my faith to strengthen my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

number one

00:52:01--> 00:52:57

is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quran and there is nothing nothing will bring me closer to Allah subhanaw taala than his words and he man gets weaker as a roswaal he sought to surround tortoise he said in this Hadith, man faith layer Hello Can I have the faith will wear off like a dress like your dress wear off. And then he gives the advice festival la gente de manaphy Upolu We ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts. ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts. And number one, number one is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so there is a beautiful saying to say northman they say

00:52:58--> 00:53:37

Spangler, he said, no bahara una, Masha in Colombia rabina. If our hearts were pure, if our hearts were pure, we will never have enough from the words for our Lord. We will never have enough from the words of our loads, if we had enough, free work on how our hearts and there is legendary examples about how the Aracely salatu salam and the companion lived with the Quran. And there is a hadith about or Swati saw to sit up

00:53:38--> 00:53:48

that he spend all night long imagine this all night, reciting one verse from the Quran, it's at the end of solitude.

00:53:49--> 00:54:22

And the verse says into availible for a normally bad Look, I taught for long playing liquor analogies are hacking into the boom. If you punish them, they are Your servants. They're your slaves. And if you forgive them, you are all might or wise and affordable. Might need one higher, one higher. one verse He is up contemplating about what's the punishment of a law? What is a law? He is Almight. He is all wise.

00:54:23--> 00:54:37

practical tips. We need practical tips. Make sure every single day you spend minimum 1015 May Allah forgive me Look how many man I'm saying.

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

The more the better. With the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. You read? You listen, you memorize you review. You understand any part in your life. Where are you now? But make sure the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is on

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

opened by you every day, not only when I need something, not only when someone dies, not only when I'm teaching my child for me, and I look at it, as one of my teachers beautifully said it

00:55:17--> 00:55:33

and said, look at the book, have a license, open it, and we opened it. And he said, put your finger on this verse. I said, don't read, just say this to yourself, how that column will be. This is the words of my Lord.

00:55:34--> 00:55:37

This is the words of my Lord. And

00:55:39--> 00:55:51

we lost that we lost that. We don't look at the Quran as kolomna law, the word of Allah, and I glorify it. We look at the Orion the book.

00:55:52--> 00:56:45

We need to bring this back resuscitate that remind each other every single day you want your Eman to get stronger and stronger and stronger. And you reach Ramadan in sha Allah, six months, 10 months to Ramadan. You want to get to Ramadan and your EMA is up top. Start today. Start with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Read daily, daily, like you check your email daily. Like you check all your social social media daily, like you text, the people you love daily. We all do that. We all do that. And May Allah forgive us all. We all do this more than once, sometimes every hour. And I think I read this some some time ago is the average person check their phone 150 times a day.

00:56:47--> 00:57:05

So Pamela 150 times Imagine if I opened the Quran 150 times and every time I did only one verse, only one verse, I've read 150 verses a day. You know how many pages is this?

00:57:06--> 00:57:10

This is more than 40 pages. Every page in the Quran is 15 lines

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

to imagine

00:57:13--> 00:57:22

so the first step to get closer to Allah to strengthen my Eman, od joven eight, reinstate

00:57:23--> 00:57:43

your relationship, my relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. read it, read it. And I always say this to everybody. And this is from my personal experience and this is from what I was advised, is get yourself into a class of or on any kind of a class memorization.

00:57:44--> 00:58:28

Understanding word to word how to read, get yourself into a class of Oran. So you sit down and you spend at least an hour a day, one hour a day with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala la hora, Kuru buena Mara should be happening Colombia rabina, as a North man said, if our hearts were pure, and purified, we will never, ever have enough from the book and the words of Allah pantalla. I'm going to take some a couple of questions before I end is a very good question. It says What about interaction with family? How much would you be too much? Very good question. And I think I commented on it, but I will get more.

00:58:30--> 00:58:55

As long as your interaction with your family is not taking you away from Allah from his Salah, from his Salah, from his book from his remembrance interacts with with your family, but if I am interacting with my family, and I serve them, we all ate dinner, have dinner, we cleaned and everything and everybody is sitting, watching something not pleasing to Allah. Do I have to be there?

00:58:56--> 00:59:44

Can I finished I sat with them I ate I served them. And then this 30 minutes or 45 minutes, they are watching something Do I have to be there? Every night? Can I get excused for 1015 minutes? Go and do something to resuscitate my relationship with Allah and then come back. Can we do that? Yes, we can. Do we have that? Yes, we do. 1520 minutes. I'm not saying hours. 1520 minutes we all can we just have to work on it. And absolutely worldly. Allah with the collapse of my inner worldly by the remembrance of Allah. The hearts will be serene or will reach serenity. Please forgive me. I don't know if there is questions I there was

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

a lot of comments but I don't I couldn't read all the the questions but in general in general, I will leave you with the following a time and humbler is up number one. He man face changes up and down.

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

Look around you look at the surroundings, look at the signs of a loss pantalla and get attached to it. Signs of Allah is his book sign of Allah His creation signs of Allah His righteous people get attached to it and in sha Allah pantalla if Allah would give us life and I will be with you next week we will continue and we will go more with other methods to increase my email that last question I will take just because she put it down there system mana What do we do when we don't have righteous

01:00:33--> 01:01:25

company with us and we cannot change the environment? No righteous company meaning I can see them there is plenty online. Plenty online, plenty in the books. I have one of my friends Subhan Allah who her son is blind and this I know this boy now and Mashallah Tamara Colossus he was like two or three years old he's blind completely and he spent all his life listening to see the Sahaba the Quran and you when you literally I visited them very recently Of course before the COVID and when this now he's he's a grown up man when he listened to this he's he's enjoying it and his mom used to tell me she's living with the righteous people so living with the righteous people doesn't have to

01:01:25--> 01:01:37

be human being you see with you in the house not everybody has that. Number two, you will be that righteous person you work on yourself and you gradually will change the people around you

01:01:38--> 01:01:45

gradually people you will give this to to your people to the people around you

01:01:50--> 01:02:31

there is a very good question that will be the last one is what about the delay the Salah because the magicite that's actually it has been done as long as the Salah time will not end so for example select Malaysia they sometimes delayed and that's even at the time before us have been done with the righteous people as long as it is within the time of the salah and it is 1015 minutes as long as it's within the time you're not gonna miss the Salah itself you can delete and usually this happens with a Salah to lecture that's absolutely accepted and has been done does akmola Haydn's pelikulang will be handing a shadow stop we will cover today solo alesi now Mohammed while earlier he was hired

01:02:31--> 01:02:41

with his team and kathira this talk is going to be on YouTube. So if you missed it or you want to listen to it again to Zack malarkey, don't forget us in your da wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
