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

alone in burrito Erica. Holly Macavity?

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

Yeah.

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

The, the topic that I was given is about the heart, the human heart. And it's a topic that's fascinated me for a long time, not only the spiritual heart, but also the physical heart. And I was actually on a cardiac unit

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

for several years,

00:01:24--> 00:01:36

and spent a lot of time with people that had had heart attacks. In fact, I took care of a lot of people with heart attacks, and I saw people die from heart attacks in front of me.

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

And

00:01:39--> 00:01:51

something always really amazed me about seeing somebody that came in to hospital with a heart attack is that there was a type of opening that they had a window,

00:01:52--> 00:02:13

where suddenly they were challenged, deep within their own souls to assess their situation to assess their lives, and to really think about what they were doing with their lives. And yet, as they started getting better, and not all of them did, but the ones that did, as they started getting better, you could see that window close.

00:02:14--> 00:02:21

And they were back on the phone and making plans to go back to work and to go back into the dunya.

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

And really forgot what had happened to them.

00:02:26--> 00:02:37

And then you would have these physicians that would come in and tell them how their cardiac enzymes were down and looking good. And it was a mild heart attack, and really nothing to worry about.

00:02:39--> 00:03:07

And you'll be back in the fray in the rat race, they didn't use that word. But that's really what it meant. You'll be back in the rat race soon enough. And you'll pedal around some more on that. Like in those rat cages, where they have that wheel that rats spin around on, you're not really going anywhere near your are to your destination, the more your slip sliding away and like an American songwriter said.

00:03:08--> 00:03:19

And before long they were they were gone. And who knows maybe a lot of them have died already. And maybe some of them are still ticking.

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

But we know that the heart is the most extraordinary organ in the entire body.

00:03:28--> 00:03:37

We know for instance, now that the heart is pulsating at about 40 million times a year.

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

In the human lifespan, your heart will pulsate about 3 billion times.

00:03:45--> 00:03:49

It takes about 40 gallons of blood an hour.

00:03:50--> 00:04:09

You try to get some buckets for get 40 gallons and move them from one room to another and see how tired you are. And yet this extraordinary organ that Allah Subhana Allah has put into the body continues to pump throughout our lives effortlessly.

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

not asking us for anything not even asking us to tell it to pump for us.

00:04:18--> 00:04:29

And even more unusual about the heart is now we know that the heart is actually not only is it self regulating, it begins beating before there's a central nervous system

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

who made the heartbeat before there was a central nervous system

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

who made the heartbeat

00:04:39--> 00:04:51

the one that created the heart made it beat and sustains its beat and then one day it stops beating. And this form in time suddenly leaves and goes to another realm

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

and during our life, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

has challenged us

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

He called the hearts calm when I say he called because I believe like many of the scholars, although there's difference of opinion about it, that the Arabic language is topia that it was it was made by Allah subhanho wa Taala. For the Koran, that is a language like one orientalist said, this is the most artificial language in existence. In other words, it's very clear that it wasn't a conventional language like English, English is really a creole. That resulted from Pidgin languages, Pidgin languages are when people from different original languages come together, and they try to communicate with each other. So like West African came to two, when when they were brought here from

00:05:43--> 00:05:59

West Africa during the the period of slavery in this country, illegally brought against international law at that time, which was the law of the Muslims because they were the international community. Now it's the Anglo American Alliance, when they say international community read English and Americans.

00:06:01--> 00:06:33

Because that it should be inter two nations community, that's what they should call it. Right? They shouldn't call international community like it's a whole bunch of nations together, because it's not, it's just the Americans and the British. And really, they're one people, the Anglo Saxons, and in all the other the other white people are, they're not really part of the Anglo Saxon, they're not even accepted by them in this country. They used to have a word they use wasp, but I think that's one of the few words it's still not in the politically correct.

00:06:35--> 00:07:17

prohibited dictionary, there's a whole bunch of words that are prohibited, you could still say was, right, because there's a lot of people that have been victims of the wasp sting. And so they're not reluctant to put that in that dictionary. But the wash is a white Anglo Saxon Protestant. And these were the people that came to this country from England. In fact, they were really like how average in the Islamic history because the holidays were people they didn't like the rulers, so they just broke off and did their own thing. And that's what the American did, ultimately, and, and then they split, come together again, and the the ruling the world, and they're not doing a very good job of

00:07:17--> 00:07:27

it. And in fact, it's really from the absence of the Muslims from the quote, unquote, international community. But anyway, at that time, it was illegal.

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

And in fact, it was actually illegal.

00:07:32--> 00:08:00

International slave trade was outlawed in the 1820s. A lot of people don't know that. But it continued by American slavers illegally even by their own laws. So they were actually bringing people over from West Africa illegally by their own laws for several decades, until it was finally stopped. In the really, it's going to go into the 1880s because you they were bringing slaves to

00:08:02--> 00:08:16

the Caribbean area and also to South America. But when the the slaves came over, they like the West Africans in Gambia, Senegal, or senegambia. They say, well, k will k means okay.

00:08:18--> 00:08:22

And a lot of people don't know that. You see, it's the most American word there is and it's actually

00:08:24--> 00:08:34

a word from West Africa. You told the white supremacy that no stop using it probably. Right? You're speaking West African dialect.

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

Okay, so so they tell the, you know, the West African Go Go bring the put those over there and he'd say, Well, okay,

00:08:43--> 00:08:49

that's how he responded and then that's that they would say that to them, then they understood that means Okay, they'd say okay.

00:08:51--> 00:09:24

And that became part of the language. So, English is a language that really resulted in a lot of different peoples coming together and then their children from a Pidgin language the children will create a creole language. And so, all of the languages that we speak today in the world are actually Creole languages. In fact, audio is a creole language, right, or do is mixed up of Cindy and Persian and Arabic, right. miking in order, they say qiyamah See, but hey,

00:09:27--> 00:09:33

what, what mo Siva, you know, animal see by the Arabic word, where'd they get that word from?

00:09:34--> 00:09:44

Right? Where they get they got it from the Arabs. And they added to it the wrong things, right? This what they say? Or they say, like I would say or do.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Right? And my no means it's known, but that's the Arabic. But the fact is, you know, that's because he doesn't know where it came from. Right? And then when he starts learning Arabic, he says, Hey,

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

That's from all do.

00:10:08--> 00:10:29

But it's not it's from Arabic because Arabic is the first language is the mother tongue. It's the language of our mother. And our father and the mother uses them. And they're their words are Arabic names. So this Arabic is not an arbitrary language. It's not a conventional language, not it's not a gluten native language, just sticking things together.

00:10:31--> 00:11:01

The word in Arabic for heart is spelled, that's one of the words the Arabs have a lot of words for heart, one of the words is calm. Now, if you take that and switch the letters around, you get a patina. And there's a science of the meanings of the words when you switch the letters around like you have a word like, which means action, if you switch the letters around, you get amahl, which knowledge and then you get Ahmed action, because knowledge and action are related, and

00:11:03--> 00:11:06

are related also, and

00:11:07--> 00:11:54

before are also related. Because the heart knows something that it knew before it came into this realm. You see, the heart knows unless to be erotic from the heart knows the answer to that question, Bella shahina. Indeed, we testify to that truth. So every human heart that came into the world knew this truth, this spiritual truth. And then the human being is tasked in his life, to once again testify during his life on Earth, because he Terry's on the earth for a period of time and he has to testify, Sitka. lb he, in truth from his heart, that once again, he has to testify just as he testified in the primordial world with almost no Adana, he has to testify in this world before Allah

00:11:54--> 00:12:38

subhana wa tada in his unseen manifestation because Allah subhana wa tada is manifesting himself in creation from an unseen realm before we were in a realm in which Allah subhana wa Donna was loyal. And now he's boffin. See Allah subhanho wa Taala has hidden himself from us by manifesting His attributes in creation, and it is the human heart that has to recognize this. And this is why the heart is the organ of cognition. It's not the brain, you see the the the non Muslims would like to say that you think in your brain, this is what they would like to say. But you have to ask the question, why is it that and people who study martial arts notice that if you cut off the carotid

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

artery, for a short period of time, people lose consciousness.

00:12:44--> 00:13:03

They lose consciousness. Why? Because you cut off the source of consciousness, which is the heart. Without the heart, there is no consciousness. And its blood. In fact, the blood which is carrying all the glucose in the oxygen, 60% of which is being utilized by the human brain.

00:13:04--> 00:13:43

And it's the heart that's sending it there. So it is the heart that is the source of human consciousness. And now, we're only beginning to study things like the atrial peptide, this this is a hormone now, they didn't even know it existed before. And now they're seeing that the heart is telling the brain things, it's telling the brain what to do. This is very recent research in, in cardiology, you see, they didn't know that before. So how much Don't they know? They don't even know how aspirin works. They don't you ask a doctor, ask your doctor, how does aspirin work? We haven't worked that out yet. It's the most prescribed drug.

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

And he said, We don't really know how that works.

00:13:48--> 00:14:05

You can ask them a lot of questions. If you want to stump a doctor. That's an easy thing to do. If you want to stump, you can stump any of them. You think and and really in the end of the day, they can explain things how, but if you ask them why that question will always stump them.

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

If you just switch from how to why. You see for instance, you ask them

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

why does the heart beat?

00:14:18--> 00:14:49

Easy? Why does the heart beat you know what, why didn't it take the blood somewhere else? By summit? Why does it go contraction expansion? You see diastolic systolic, why does it do that? It could have done other way. There's lots of ways you could get the blood around the body without a beat. Why did Allah make it a beat? And then and then you ask, why did Allah make the breath? expansion contraction?

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

Because that's what and bossip. Allah is Bob and his boss. He's the contractor and the expander

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

And the heart is doing that every moment you see your heart is, if you listen to it, they call it lub dub,

00:15:07--> 00:15:28

dub dub, right? They don't know what it's saying. But if you listen closely, you can hear that. I mean, they say like meow. in, in, in. In English, that's supposed to be the way a cat sound. They say meow or in Japanese, they don't say meow. They say something else like cow, right?

00:15:30--> 00:16:20

So what is it meow or cow? Right? Well, it's just the way they're hearing it. All right, so they're trying to get an approximation. But if you listen to the heart, with a stethoscope, and very closely, you will hear what it says. It says, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah. That's what it said. contraction expansion. And if you look at the, the the name, the Divine Name of Allah, it's a contraction expansion. That's what it is. That's what the tongue is doing. Oh Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, that's what he's doing. And this is what the heart is doing. The heart knows who his Lord is. But the Nef has forgotten who its Lord is. And this is because we become tainted with the dunya

00:16:20--> 00:16:40

we're in the world we forgotten who our Lord is. And Allah subhana wa, tada sent messengers to remind us who our Lord is, so that we can return so that we can return now if you ask how do we bring our data to life? The first recognition is that it's dead.

00:16:41--> 00:17:11

That's the first thing that's the place where we start. That event is dead. You see in the Muslim world, now we are in the perfunctory mode. We went on to automatic pilot several 100 years ago, right? We invented it long before these people ever got it. Right. We just turned on automatic pilot and went into what's called the muffler or heedlessness, that's what the pilot does they get once they get up in the air. If you ever opened that door, you'll have a heart attack, because they're snoring that they're lying back there and even go to sleep.

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

People don't know that. But it's true. Right? They actually go to sleep on those planes, those pilots.

00:17:24--> 00:17:37

And that's what happens with Muslim you see, you can go into a mechanical mode, Allahu Akbar. And you can pray rockets and you and then a few, like, five minutes later, you start wondering, did I pray?

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

Or how many rockets did I pray?

00:17:48--> 00:17:59

Why do we have so many intentions in Islam? Is the interesting thing about a bed if you don't make an intention, the attempt now where's the intention? You know what the owner might say? mahalo nia.

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

The place an intention is in the heart is not saying the way to so lots of boxes that can become a tape recorder as well. Right? You just go into automatic pilot, no way to Serato or Baraka ads for you button, right? And then you just do that every time. And you just change the tape. If it's

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

right, you gotta get the tape straight, right?

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

So this is what people do, they go to sleep.

00:18:28--> 00:18:49

And they and then there's a lot of people they've gone to such a degree of sleep because there are different types of sleep, you have REM sleep, rapid eye movement, you know, see, a lot of people are in REM sleep, but there's other people they're not even in REM sleep, the eyes aren't even moving. There's no movement. Right? And so there's degrees of sleep.

00:18:50--> 00:19:08

When so many young people are asleep, let's say nobody said that. It's true. You just have to think about it. People are asleep. They are saved 90. What's it what is all of this creation? Somebody asked me once, what is creation? And he said, How about one now you're in the cinema.

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

This is like the dust in the air that only becomes visible when the light of a law strikes it.

00:19:20--> 00:19:40

You see that was out of the lead. I was a man who knew Allah subhana wa tada what a more profound description of the atomic realm. You see all of these atoms like floating, floating in this aetherium space that was created. And the only reason they're visible is because a lot of noodle Some are watching

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

minobu Some are watching without getting nominated the heavens and the earth. And the heart is the organ of the human being that is capable of perceiving that in the most profound and deep ways, and this is why the heart is a gift from Allah. And you have to protect the gift look where he put it. He put it behind the sternum

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

The strongest thing in the body he put it and then he put a rib cage around it. He didn't put it like the genitals. The the janitors right out there, right? Seriously, look, I'm in a person doesn't have any protection there. That's why you want to down a man. They teach you that's the first thing they teach you in martial arts, go for the groin. Because there's no protection, you see, but the heart a lot put protection there, a powerful protection. And then he gave it a pumping, this oscillating power in which the blood is flowing in every single cell of the body in every pulse. There is blood to the heart reaches every single cell of the body every moment.

00:20:45--> 00:20:58

And then he made it an oscillator, the heart is oscillating. And if you know anything about oscillatory physics, that's a big word that I learned recently. So I'm using it if you know anything about oscillatory physics.

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

It's the study of entrainment how things in train with other things like people, when they march, they they start to entrain. Naturally, if you try to walk with somebody out of step, and it's hard to do, you naturally train like soldiers naturally in train.

00:21:31--> 00:22:10

This results in amplification, which is even more frightening, the famous breed story that they teach every engineer in Germany when all these soldiers were marching across the bridge, and they were, they were all marching in one step. And so the actual the the force of the way that activity was amplified exponentially because it was all together, you see, and that's the power of being unified. When you're unified. You have power, and when you're disunited, you're weak. Now, the heart also has a power, the heart literally in trains the body, the brain and the hardware and trained at the same point one hertz.

00:22:12--> 00:22:53

The heart and the brain are in train, there's an entrainment taking place. Now the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in the heart of the human being is a lump of flesh, it is sound, the entire body is sound. And if it is corrupt, the entire body is corrupt. Why? Because the entire body is in entrainment with the heart. And if the heart is disease, then the entrainment will be diseased. If the hardest sound, the entrainment will be sound. So how then this one bring the heart back to life, the first thing is to recognize that the heart has died. Now the heart dies for various reasons and their spiritual death of the heart. One of the signs that the heart is dead

00:22:53--> 00:23:36

is that people don't weep. That's a sign of the death of the heart. Another sign of the death of the heart is it when they hear the Quran, it has no impact on their heart, when they hear while it has no impact on their heart. Now, it could also be vice versa, if the word is dead, then also that that has a reality also. And this is part of our problem, because we're all dead as well. So dead talking to dead. And then we go into this state where it really it's it's a frightening situation. And this is the problem with leadership. You see, when the leaders are sick, the everybody may have now Wales when the leader gets sick and goes and commits suicide on the beach, all the other whales follow it,

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

even though they're healthy,

00:23:40--> 00:23:57

because that's what happened. And that's why leadership is such an Amana and that's why any intelligent person would not want leadership. Because if he destroys himself, he takes other people with him. And then he has the wrong actions of the other people as well. Because it's an anon it's a trust from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:23:58--> 00:24:37

So the first thing is to recognize the heart is dead and then how do we bring the heart to light the heart can be brought to light. One of the things that brings the heart to life is to our to the Quran by reading the Quran with reflection. And this is important why because you have to know why things happen. Once you understand why Allah Subhana Allah has asked you to do these things, understanding causes or engender is in the heart of desire to fulfill that thing because you're now using your intellect. And when the intellect is behind something, it's not the same as when you're just following orders. When you actually believe something, you have conviction, and when there's

00:24:37--> 00:24:58

conviction, then there's action. And when there's action, there's change, you will change and things around you will change. So keynoted Quran with middleport is one of the reasons that Allah subhana wa tada brings the life to heart. Now if you look in the Quran, there are many things. Allah subhana wa tada says What on earth is there is Billahi min. Ash shaytani r rajim.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

When you

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

read the Quran ust Agha of Allah subhana wa tada from chiffon. Now, chiffon is real and chiffons realm is the heart. He does not know what's in the heart is one of the things Ally's veil from Chapin does not know your heart. He doesn't know what you're thinking. So don't think that he does. He does not know what you are thinking. But he has the ability to whisper in the heart and the weaker the heart, the more powerful his whispering. The stronger the heart, the more the decibels go down. And and if a heart is really healthy, the beat is so powerful that Chapin he is screaming and it's not heard in that heart, the heart of a powerful man like mo Minogue, or called the elbow bucho

00:25:45--> 00:26:28

or emammal Junaid who actually said he wanted to see chiffon. He asked the Lord to show him ship and ship on one day he came to him he saw chiffon and this occurred to many of the believers, including our era are the one who saw chiffon, Butera and this is confirmed because Siobhan takes form in mama Junaid saw chiffon in the form of an old man and he was hideous. He said when he looked at him, his heart became filled with terror. And he said, Who are you? And he said, I'm the one you wanted to see. And he said, Pamela, you're you're a believer? And he said yes. And he said, I have a question for you. Why didn't you bow down to Adam? In other words, he's thinking What a fool you know you I

00:26:28--> 00:26:43

want to understand this right now. That's what he wants to he said, you know, what an idiot why did why did you bow that? You want to understand that? Why didn't you bow down to that you were right there. And our Lord told you to do something. You You must be insane.

00:26:45--> 00:26:59

Right. And and Chapin said, Yeah even Junaid How could I bow down to other than Allah? That's what she said. He said how can I bow down to other than Allah now this is called in shadia wahala to

00:27:01--> 00:27:44

the Mahadeva of somebody who has not Chapin is a liar he's cadet and initially mom Junaid was he was shocked by the answer because he thought about that like Satan and he refused to wipe out the name Rasulullah when he was asked to by the Messenger of Allah, Satan aboubaker refuse to meet the prayer. These are times when Sahaba actually went against the Messenger of Allah to egg Dubin be Rasulullah out of edip. So Siobhan was pretending to be Matthew, He was saying, you know, to me human, how can I bow down to other than Allah and then he mm Junaid said suddenly it came into his heart, he's a liar, had he really loved the law, he would have obeyed the law.

00:27:45--> 00:28:00

And then when he said that you're a liar, and he told him chiffon fled because that's a man with a big heart. So chiffon has no power now a law tells us first there is the law. And then Allah subhana wa tada says,

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

In other who,

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

in who laser who so far known, he has no authority

00:28:09--> 00:28:41

and an levina manual, all those who believe what or have been here to work alone, and they trust in their Lord, they have to work it out of law, chiffon has no authority over these people. Now look what I said before he says that he says, If you read the Quran, seek refuge in Allah is the either and then he says chiffon has no authority over those who believe and they trust in Allah. Now. What a lot Why is he saying that before because he's saying if you believe and you trust in Allah chiffon has no authority

00:28:43--> 00:29:31

but he tells us before that trust in Allah, but tie your camel make use the either say, Oh, the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. That's as bad. You're trusting in a law but you're taking the means. And this is what a lot of telling us. He's telling us to trust in Allah, but tie your camel like the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and so knowing that that when we recite the Quran We seek refuge in Allah from ship on why? Because we don't want your fun to influence our understanding of the Koran. And then Allah tells us if you believe in Allah and you trust in Him but trust means taking the ASVAB exam using a trust in Allah that all understand it No,

00:29:31--> 00:29:46

you study grammar, rhetoric, logic to see howdy all of these things before you try to understand the Quran because that is to work on with us. We don't just say a token Allah like somebody come over to someone's house they say

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

I'm hungry and he said, You know, I'm trusting in a lot the food will come No, you say get up and go out and go I'm your guests. Go and give me some food. Right? There's no angels that are going to come in and serve

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

Wife, angelic wife who puts up with husbands like that, but there's no angels in there, right that are gonna come and do that you have to do things with us bad the means, and the Dean of a lot. The dean of Allah is the Dean of of means. And this is why if you understand the reason why we're doing these things, you will have success, because it will encourage you, you'll begin to take see if you understood, for instance, if you had a glimpse of the unseen world, just for one moment, and suddenly you saw a shell thing, right on people's right there, their shell thing walking around with people, if you could see that out there in in Chicago, Cook County, right 32,000 abused and

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

neglected children under government.

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

Authority here in this county alone, 32,000 neglected and abused children really Cook County,

00:30:57--> 00:31:10

right. Children that throw other children off building tops in Cook County. If you could see the shale thing in this city, you know what you'd be doing? You'd be saying, I only be lame in a shutdown regime.

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

Everywhere you look

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

around

00:31:15--> 00:31:39

you just going to a state where you would just be saying I want to be named mineshaft on the regime the whole time. You couldn't walk anywhere that and so it's a mercy from Allah that you're not frightened. Right, really? It's a mercy but you have to be aware of his existence. Right? You have to be aware and then you take precautions what are the precautions Whoo hoo Allahu Allahu samata needed what am you let

00:31:40--> 00:31:47

you do that three times in the morning three times in the evening. I wouldn't be getting it later. I'm not even sorry Mahara this Milady

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

It was me and him alone and tabula.

00:31:54--> 00:31:54

rasa go

00:31:55--> 00:32:08

and do all of those cards every morning. And every evening you do them Why? Because you want the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala you want to be in the protection of Allah, if the best of creation get those.

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

And he had protection. There were angels surrounding him mighty co colorants, warriors around him, that if anybody threatened him from the inside of the gym, like the one out of the who came up to the message or law, and he and he found him sleeping under a tree, and he said, who will protect you now? He said a lot. And the man dropped his sword and started shaking and the measures well put it up and he said, Who's gonna protect you? He couldn't say Allah. He said,

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

Go ahead, kill me.

00:32:38--> 00:33:12

Right That's it, you know that. They were tough people. They said, Go ahead, kill me. miserable. I didn't kill him. He became a Muslim. But the point is that man wanted to kill him. And he couldn't. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the Islam. He protected him. When he came out the night when Satan and he took his place. He came out all of the strongest use of courage. The people have to do what the people are chivalry from the forest. Each one of them from each clan had a sword waiting to kill the Messenger of Allah. So he came out with a DM

00:33:14--> 00:33:35

now home from LA you will see room. This is what he said when orange anabaena Cobain and Athena Lumina Javon mistura. If you recite the Quran, we will put a veil between you and those who don't believe in the chakra, and he was completely veiled. He was the invisible man he came out, they could not see him. They couldn't see him.

00:33:38--> 00:33:42

End This is he was doing these things. Why? Because his heart was aware not because of

00:33:44--> 00:34:22

his heart didn't deny. It did not lie in what it's taught of the HAC of the truth. His heart was awake, it was living the angels when they came, they found him asleep and they said, his eyes sleep but his heart doesn't sleep. The Messenger of Allah, his heart never slept. It was always in the Divine Presence of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why if you came and you were with him, then you were immersed in that divine presence. And that's why people when they were around, and they couldn't do anything, but remember Allah when they left the Messenger of Allah, one of them humbled I came to the mesial Romanies in Yasuo, Ma, when we're with you, we remember a law and we're and

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

it's as if we can see the awkward in front of them. And then we go home, and we got it with our families and our in our work and all these and we forget, what why do we do that? And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's not saying that I mean, he said to him, that this this is a time for this and a time for that. This is the nature of being Benny azim kulu comme hapa own, all of you will make mistakes, mushroom your insane insanity in the unknown. ESEA we forget this is our nature, but we have to be reminded. Now when the heart becomes alive. There's an internal world

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

minder, you no longer need these external reminders. When when the time comes when the Masia is there, you remember a lot. And I'll give you an example. And this is the blessing of the company of the shield. When I was in Algeria, because I'm left handed when I was studying in, in Tz in Tz, there was a shift there, Cebu says, inshallah he's protected. I don't know what happened to him. But he was one of my teachers. And I was in a hall with all these people. And there was several of us on the other end of the room. And I was eating, they gave some dessert, and I was eating the dessert, and I was using my left hand, because that's habitual for a left handed person. And I looked over

00:35:38--> 00:35:52

and I saw him and he looked at me, and then he looked down at my hand, and I knew that I have to be here with my right hand, I changed hands. Now, whenever I put put my fork or spoon or anything, my left hand, I see his face.

00:35:54--> 00:36:12

That happens to me, I'm not making this up. I see his face whenever I do that. And I remember and that's a gift. Right? For a teacher who has spiritual authority. That's a gift and that's the blessing of being in the company of these people. Right You see, the time that I spent with

00:36:14--> 00:36:33

a cache hit on Heidi boon, present and absent at the same time, because he All he does is remember all all he does, is remember Allah Kenny cannot cannot assume the light it cannot or pseudo light and nobody can or sudo Vi

00:36:36--> 00:37:10

Vi Kalyani, he, he remembered a lot in every state. When he got up. He remembered a lot. When he went to bed. He remembered a lot when he put his clothes on, he remembered a lot. When he tied his turban. He remembered a lot when he went out to the marketplace. He remembered Allah when he came home, he remembered a lot when you bought something you remember a lot when he sold something he remembered a lot. When he went to the masjid. He remembered a lot when he was stepped, put his foot in, he remembered a lot and changed feet coming in and out as a conscious human being. When he came into the mess did he did his machine. And then he stayed remembering a lot when he left, he

00:37:10--> 00:37:52

remembered a lot. When he went into battle, he remembered a lot during the battle, he remembered a lot, who name was his day, all of the battles were his days, but he defeated the the the horizon and all these great Arab tribes, he defeated them single handedly, when all the Muslims were fleeing even the best of them, he stayed firm. And then they came back and they routed them. And this is because he was in a state of remembrance of Allah. He saw gibreel fill the entire horizon. What do you do once you've seen jabril? You look out every time you'll see the horizon. That's what you'll see. If you had the chance to see jabril fill the entire horizon, go out and look at the horizon.

00:37:52--> 00:38:03

And imagine seeing the angel of Allah subhana wa tada fill the entire horizon. What are you going to do after that? What are you gonna do? are you ever gonna forget Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:04--> 00:38:42

Are you going to forget a lot, you can't go to sleep after that. You can't there's it's not possible. And this is why the more that we struggle against our souls, the more light that comes in, and Allah subhana wa tada causes in Shira to the breath. Why, because the hearts growing, it needs more room, it needs more room because the heart is getting bigger. And the bigger the heart gets, the greater power the person has against the forces of evil. And when the heart is powerful than other people begin to entrain with that heart, like the clocks, the tick, and the smaller clocks begin to entrain with the sway of that clock. And so in the messenger

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

and present, all of the Sahaba were in train with His Divine heart because his heart was beating

00:38:50--> 00:39:32

his breasts were breathing for a loss of 100. Without his movements were moving for a loss of data. And so when this was happening, everybody was in that state, all of the Sahaba and the day he died so low, it was gonna cause such a trauma in those people that it would take them several generations before they would come back to their senses. That's how powerful his absence only in the physical realm once. And this is what the power of Islam is. It's the power of the human heart. This is what the power of Islam is it began with the heart, Allah subhana wa tada revealed this to the Messenger of Allah, his heart, and it was transmitted to the hearts and it's been passed on by the hearts. And

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

if the hearts don't wake up, they're going to wake up when they die. When your heart stops beating, he will wake up and then it's too late. So we have to do something, don't just come here and then go back to your home and nothing's changed, make commitments. How many people are willing to stop in training with the television? Because when you watch television, you're getting these cathode rays beaming out to you and you're in training with demonic entrainment. These are dark energies.

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

are coming out and putting your heart into a state and you can watch young children, you just watch them in front of a TV and you go like this. And they can't see anything because they're completely in a state of magic, a magical spell has been placed on them, and their hearts begin to entrain. With that, and they're getting all of these ideas put in their minds, people have to be willing to do the same for the sake of Allah, how many people are willing to commit to praying on time from this day forward to getting up before the dawn, not at dawn, we have to be we have to get into a state where we can call on Allah and Allah will answer us because we're in a state now we call on a

00:40:37--> 00:40:39

line. It's just like this idea that

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

this is our state, how is the law going to answer us look at this chunky

00:40:46--> 00:41:23

45 seconds, look at the buildings completely destroyed. And then all those mosque and somebody said to me is a miracle, it's not a miracle. Those people knew how to build, they were cheaters. When they made a contract with the government to build a mosque, they built it up to standard and whose standard Allah Subhana Allah down and His Messenger standard, the standard of ehsaan. And it's on. And now these these crooks and criminals that builds to make buildings that the slightest shaking can knock them down. It was an earthquake on 4.0, it would, they would have all come tumbling down. There's earthquakes of that magnitude in western countries, and you don't see the buildings falling

00:41:23--> 00:42:03

apart. Why? Because they build them up to code and standard. And so the tribulation is from our own self, because we cheat and we lie, who's wanting to become a person of Exxon, and it's kind of these people. And then all of those people really look at that. It's a metaphor for this time, those buildings that were built on tequila, they remained and they and they go on, and all those other buildings built on hustla, and greed and avarice, and enmity and animosity for humanity because no person with a human heart could do that. And the difference between those who remember Allah, and those who forget Allah is the difference between the living and the dead. And so you're going to

00:42:03--> 00:42:08

choose each one of you, whether you're going to be one of the living, or one of the dead.

00:42:09--> 00:42:15

Each one of you will make that choice in your life, whether you choose to be one of the living or one of the dead.

00:42:16--> 00:42:26

But we are people who worship and how you will consume the living who goes on and by his life, we're given life. okoto Cody, how to stop
