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

The diseases of the heart,

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

we looked at, first of all, we looked at the who talked about,

00:00:10--> 00:00:16

and the importance of eds. And then we talked about the outcome of knowledge.

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

And the treatments for

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

the disease.

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

These are really the most important ones,

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

down to about four or five ones, if you can control those, all the other ones actually are removed easily.

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

And Ramadan is a month to

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

two

00:01:19--> 00:01:23

to be happy with the behavior or the livelihood

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

when you basis fast.

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

And so it's kind of the opposite of that idea. And then

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

actually, he said,

00:01:48--> 00:01:48

the best

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

of

00:01:54--> 00:02:01

the best is rectifying between people. So the best way to find the two people

00:02:04--> 00:02:09

that would be the best. So this is a time to remove from your heart about people. And

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

this is a time when you can't do any

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

faster.

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

If somebody tries to,

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

don't fight with them,

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

tell them you don't want to do it. And then

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

position

00:02:39--> 00:02:45

is about gaining a position with a law because the reason the secret of the only actor

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

is an actor.

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

Fasting is

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

fasting

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

is is that

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

the lazy

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

people

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

neglected, it grows up loving to stop.

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

When it becomes so long a bond is the time of learning

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

from them.

00:03:54--> 00:03:54

And then

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

the things that you don't do

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

the shortcomings of your actions

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

to recognize that you've wasted the whole year and now it's time to catch up.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

It's time to catch up in this month.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

Envy,

00:04:33--> 00:04:40

conquer the envy comes from desire. You can conquer desire, then you can remove envy

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

and desire is based

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

on catalyst.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

Those two desires conquer and

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

master them then all the other desires become easy.

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

This is a time to have

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

without seeing a lot is is

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

one of the secrets of abundance

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

of the heart,

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

the highest

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

of the heart.

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

This is also a time to learn to recognize

00:05:42--> 00:05:50

your position and to give up your anxieties and recognize that food is not something that we should be under the control of that, in fact, you should recognize it.

00:05:57--> 00:06:01

Because I lost the handle with the island, and recognize that that's coming from him

00:06:05--> 00:06:11

when you're fasting, but you can't live without him, it is a type of line.

00:06:16--> 00:06:21

One of the best things of Ramadan is even the worst mistakes suddenly become like

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

it's, it's, it's more difficult to have.

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

Because everybody's at the message

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

feel as significant as he would at other times of the year.

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

Because everybody was.

00:06:40--> 00:06:47

And so that's another important thing is to remove that desire to be seen by others, and desire to be honest.

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

Again, relates to the same idea

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

increases, you become more content with.

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

And one of the things that increases in

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

the month.

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

This month is what the month intend to do. And if we practice what is the wants of the people that desire

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

the same

00:07:25--> 00:07:32

desires, reputation amongst people things like this is this desire is one of again.

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

One of the things about Ramadan is to remind you,

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

you don't have much time. This is why

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

it's

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

because he's only had a few months and three days

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

is his

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

fancy talk and

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

excessive talk with no benefit in it. And then a

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

bad omen, everybody will have bad omens

00:08:41--> 00:08:47

you ever come to a ladder? I grew up thinking it's bad luck to walk under a ladder.

00:08:49--> 00:08:58

And I would have walked around. Now you come to a ladder here walk around, it could fall from the top but don't do it because it's a superstition.

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

That costs whatever the Burma the Arabs have

00:09:14--> 00:09:18

found out it was a really bad sign. So if you see an

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

alarm

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

closer

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

to

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

the curb.

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

And then

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

a line which is suspicion. You shouldn't have bad opinions of other people.

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

Especially

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

unless

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

ls which is cheating

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

to learn how to control,

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

heedlessness Ramadan is that month to remember that you should remember them all the time but more or less time.

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

rancor is

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

one of the worst diseases suffer

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

from

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

this lack of the sensor

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

again

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

and then

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

this is a month also to remember

00:11:22--> 00:11:26

and this is a time where you should be reflecting on all the blessings

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

diseases of the heart
