The King, The Queen, And The Naughty Prince By Shaykh Hasan Ali
The topic we're going to discuss this evening is going to be titled The King, the Queen and the naughty Prince. Okay, the king, the queen, and an order Prince.
And it's going to be something inshallah, which will help all of us understand ourselves better. And something that will make ourselves understand others, as well as ourselves, okay in the way that we interact with one Madonna emotions inside of what goes inside. To understand what I'm talking about. First, I'm going to give you a story. And when I give you the story, you might think well, what on earth is the story about, and once I start breaking up the story and telling you what parts relate to what you'll understand what I'm talking about. So to begin with, there was this palace, and this kingdom in the past, and the palace had many servants inside. And the palace also had a king,
a queen, that was his wife. And also, they had only one son,
one son, they never had any other children. And that son
was a bit of a notice on it because because fold after so many years, they had this one son. And you know what happens when they get suddenly one child after so long, you tend to spoil it a little bit. He's trying to give you what he wants, okay?
Now, this young prince has grown all the way up to, you know, 10 years old. And the king and queen are already
well in the adulthood.
And this palace is a very weird palace.
Okay, I know it's a story, I would relate the story to our lives in a while. So stay with me.
This palace is a bit of a weird palace, because there's a magical stick inside this palace. And this magical steak, whoever gets hold of it out of the three, they can control. And they can literally control the gods and they can control the servants, they can control the cooks and they can control whoever else is, you know, not a not a real person. Okay? So what usually happens here in this policy is when the king has the magic sticks in his hand. You know, they they're all spellbound by him, he's the one who's the judge is the one who tells people what to do, unusually, the king in this palace, you've got a balanced mind, he's got a logical mind, he keeps things in place. And when
the king has the stick in his hand, normally the palace is running well and fine, okay? Because he keeps the Queen under control. And it keeps the naughty Prince under control. And he tells the servants to look after the thing, you know, there's a lot of work to do, and so on. So the king gets everyone to do their work. And everyone obeys the king, because his his is the person of authority, and is the person who's fair, and he's not too judgmental, and so on. So he comes across very well with everyone. Now, what happens is the queen is always wanting to get grab hold of the magical stick.
And also the naughty Prince once again. Now if the Queen gets hold of this magical state, what happens is, she now gets command over the servants of this palace.
And her approach is very different. The way she rules is very different. She gets the magical stick in her hand and the king but as their way, of course the Kings gonna try and take it off. But you know, she's she's gonna have the power. While she's got it in her hand. She's got the power. And when she actually starts to
exercise the power, what she does is she's a very emotional person. And she's got highs and lows. And sometimes she's in a she goes off on a rant, she'll start telling off servants, sometimes she's in a sort of sad and depressed mood. So she just wants to be to herself. And she's just, you know, the whole, the whole, all the sevens just want to just be to themselves as well. You know, nothing's really happening. Sometimes she's really excited.
And everyone's happy in a very happy mood and there's a lot of turbulence when the Queen gets it sometimes she's focused on one thing so much so in the in the in the kingdom, that everyone's occupied with that one thing. Maybe might be just, you know, redecorating a certain room or something she was occupied now, other things will start you
I'm not being done on time because she's just got a focus on this one room and all the servants will do exactly what she wants to do when she's got the stick and a hand.
Now, of course, the best time when the Queen has it is when she's in a very happy mood because everyone's happy. The the sevens are also happy, and people generally happy but then she will go down, she might have anxiety, she might have worried. And that brings a bad mood to the to the palace, because everyone sort of worried and it's her mood, that transpires to all of the servants because she's got the stick. Now, the king, whenever he's got the chance again, after a little while, he's going to grab the stick back again and take it on once he takes it. Everything back to normal, he'll put things back to normal again, or like the servants will run around just as they
used to before. And everything's going to be hunky dory in this palace for a little while. And God forbid, if the naughty Prince comes up, and he takes the steak from his daddy. And what happens is, today is going to be party day. And son because there's no difference when he has in his hand by God, everyone's in chillout mood. And that mood everyone you know wants to have the have the say everyone wants to do what they want. Everyone's got freedom, all of a sudden, you know, people don't have to wear the uniforms anymore. People can just you know, the sevens can move around where they want. They've got literally the palace is like the playground now. And the prince, he loves it. Oh
my god, bring him chocolate, bring him cakes, bring him pudding, bring him all the things that might rot his teeth and make him a chubby little child, he don't care. The servants will do what he wants. And he's on a field day. And of course, when the naughty Prince has it, the king and queen Are you know, behind him trying to get it and he's running around and all the servers are having a field day they don't care because the prince dictates what they do at that moment, not the king, not the queen. And at that moment, there's a bit of chaos, there's quite a bit of chaos. And if you if the prince has too long, there's going to be a lot of chaos inside the palace until Usually what happens
is when the naughty Prince has got it
and he's doing his little you know,
relaxation with everybody usually the queen is the first one to get it off the princess sometimes the king but usually the Queen when the Queen gets it in her hand. What has taken to be she gonna be happy or she gonna be angry Tell me she's gonna be angry now when she's angry. All the sevens are angry as well. Oh my God, what a mess. What have you done this another reprimanding the prince? What have you done, you get in your place, do boy and you stop doing that. And so so she'll go on a little rant, she'll be quiet, you know, upset with what he's just done. sevens will also be fired up because she's fired up, and so on. And then after a while, the king will manage to get the staff
again, sticking in his hand and things are normal again. Now what happens, there's one more person I have to introduce to you. Okay, before I break this whole story up to
the one other person that is in this palace, who doesn't usually take the stick in his hand like that, he doesn't come and grab the steak. But it's only the king
that is able to
offer that and pass it to him. And the king has the power to take it back of him.
Only the king can pass it on to him. And this is the wise minister. Okay, there's a wise minister in this in this palace. And the wise minister is the most wise of all.
He's an old man. Okay, long, lengthy beard is a wise man. He's traveled the lands. He's seen in all his read libraries and libraries of books, okay. And this wise man is the wisest you can find out of the whole of the kingdom. He's the wisest man you can get. When you need some words of advice. There's nobody better than to go to the wise man. But there's one problem which is the wise man will be there. But the wise man is passive. He won't actively take the stick of you to dictate to you what you should do. No, he will remain passive. When the king comes and says please take the stick for a while and tell me how to rule this kingdom. When the king does that. Then the wise man will
But of course, it's up to the king how long he allows the star to stay in his hand before he takes it back. But when the wise man speaks, everyone's everyone's in all of this wise man. Even the queen, the naughty Prince, the sevens, the king. They're all
mesmerized by the words that come out of the wise man.
And when the wise man
say something, everyone knows that you know what, that's the best thing to do. However, the battle begins again as soon as the King takes the stuff again then the battle begins the Queen wants to grab it off the rabbit off him and so does the naughty Prince and it's a battle who's going to try and keep that stick in their hand. Okay, now the servants are there and they'll do exactly with whoever was God's got the steak and there's always this case in this weird Palace in this weird palace. This is always the case every single day sometimes sometimes you get good three days of the king heavily in his hands sometimes you get some too bad rough days when the when or turbulent days
when the Queen has it and sometimes you get some you know other day where you might have a free day when the when the prince has it. And worst case is going to be if the prince can get hold of it and keep it for a week or two weeks. Oh my god, the damage he can cause and everyone's gonna love it when he's got it. Everyone's loving. It's everyone's thrilled by the fact that the prince has got it but they know as soon as it's handed over to the queen or the king. They know this master tidy up. All right. Now you might think that what on earth is the story of Batman? He's just wasting our time after a shot in the masjid and telling telling us some Jackanory, right, this is no Jackanory. I'm
gonna relate to your life. Now I'm gonna relate to my life now. Okay.
I said to you that there was a kingdom.
I said to you, there was a kingdom. And in this kingdom, there was a palace, and this palace had servants, many servants.
The hand you've got the hands, you've got the feet, you've got the eyes, you have the ears, you have the tongue.
The body, okay, the legs, the arms.
Everything, everything that all these things that we've got the fingers and so on. They are the servants. Yoga.
The other service
when I said to you that this kingdom
has got a king, a queen and a naughty Prince. What I meant by that was we've got a king.
Okay, this is a logical mind,
a queen, our emotions inside.
And the notary prints. Which is the ego or the desires we have inside the passions and the desires we have inside. Or you can sum it up as the eagle knifes. Okay.
the stick the magical stick, is the humans free will.
The human has free will. We choose what we want to do. We can choose to become logical. We can choose to become emotional. And we can choose to follow our ego that the human makes a choice. That's the magical stick inside of us. But we're the only three people inside us. That's us. All the three people inside us. That's us. Okay.
Now, what happens is this.
If we are balanced, and we think straight, and we're having a good day, no emotions are bothering us. No ego is coming in our way. No desires, nothing that's distracting us. Only thing is my logical mind says I should do this. Yeah, I need to do this. That's when the king has got the power inside us.
That's the king sitting in there. He's got the power to make logical decisions and decisions that are going to be fair and square. Now once the king is in power, once you've got the Free Will the magical the magical state what happens is all the servants are the fingers, their arms and so on. All the servants and everything here. They will all basically do as the King ones. So when you go to logical mind, your eyes will look at what you're supposed to look at and so on and your tongue will say logical things I won't say things that are horrible to do. No It will measure things in that you will have it in control. You control the tongue control, what you listen to a control where you go
control what you touch what you do. All of it is done by the king inside here that is in control and who puts him in control. I put him in control. You put him in control and you've got a king inside you are the king inside me. Is that is that exactly with everyone? What happens sometimes is there's a battle going inside us
and the barrel is that the emotion sometimes want to take over.
Sometimes we feel these emotions inside us. It when you
When it has the power, when it gathers itself when it gets the free will and it goes towards the emotions inside the heart Let's call the emotions up here the heart.
Then the king has lost power.
For example, somebody has this happened, right? Somebody has just been, you know, triggered off by somebody else. Right? They're cheesed off. They're really upset and angry. Now, what happens that time? Is that the emotion come on? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now that time, the king is not in power.
The Queen is empower your emotions inside every single one of us. The Queen is in power, and the Queen chooses to react. And because the Queen that time is empowered emotions, they take over the arms, they take over the tongue, they take over their eyes, they take over everything else. They took over the sevens. Are you okay with me? Right? That time when the first exam is yours, your whole body changes, it tenses up, you know, you're ready for.
And if the Queen becomes struck with anxiety, then the whole body gets struck with anxiety. The head loads itself. The hands arms lower themselves, as always worried, is worried that look, King is not in power, it can't work. logical sense car is the one that could take it out of this anxiety. But now, because the emotions are flared up inside, they take over.
And if there's excitement, same thing if there's if it's happy, there's emotions, or the queen is happy in Saudi, I'm really happy. I'm really having a nice day. Yeah, yeah. buzzing, all the whole arm, everything, my face will light up everything, all my servants, they follow the emotions inside me. Whether it's jealousy, whether it's love, whether it's malice, whether it's hatred, whether it's trying to find you're trying to have arrogance, whatever it is, it's all in the emotions, it's all emotions. And it has an effect on my body.
And sometimes what happens is, our ego gets ahead of us. And these are passions and desires we have inside us, they're not emotional, they're not logical. They are passionate desires we want to fulfill, you know, we want to do something want to break the rules a bit a bit, you know, we want to do something that we're not supposed to do. That's when the ego takes over. And when the ego is taken over hamaca the ego take it over and has an eye for example, someone sitting there, and he's, he's on his smartphone, whatever. He starts flipping over First, the king was in charge. The king said, Hey, whatever you look at is gonna be okay. Yeah, fine, fine, fine. After a little while,
somehow the prince took over.
And now the person is looking at her arm stuff he's not supposed to look at. And there's a fielding
the eyes look at things that they're not supposed to look at the ears listen to things they're not supposed to listen to the tongue talks about things not supposed to talk about. And there's whole harm being committed because the ego is in charge. And all the whole body is having a field day.
And of course, like I said to you, the principal, the naughty Prince gets in charge. And the servants are listening to the north node Prince, usually who gets hold of the naughty prince
who gets hold the queen. Now all of a sudden, when the naughty Prince has had his moment, and you've just looked at things you're not supposed to look at all of a sudden you feel inside your arm. God, what do you do that for? Huh? Why did you do that for? I said to myself, I'm not gonna do it again. Right? There's remorse. There's guilt. There's anger. Where's that come? Who's in charge now? Who's in charge? The Queen? emotions I'm function right now. And after a while, that phase has gone over. And you're thinking, Okay, again, who's in charge?
The King yoga? Are you with me? yoga. All right now.
This battle is in within us every single day. And if you don't understand what's happening to you, what are you doing? It depends who has got the magical state, it depends where your attention is going towards, who's actually grab the stick if you whoever you give it to, they will rule inside you. You can give it to your logical side, you can enhance that you can give it to the emotional side and that will drive you you can give it to your ego side that will drag yourself to you. So typically, for example, when someone is in love, let me give you a clear example. Sometimes these youngsters they see someone they fall in love with.
It doesn't have to be young. They could be someone as old as Oh yeah.
You'd be lucky if you get it. Yeah.
So you fall in love. The person is in love now the the people around him says this. Let's listen bra bra bra. She's not good for you. He says she has to be great.
No, no, no, no, she's not good. She's a she's a woman who is seen lose in the marketplace. You
roaming around she's, she's seeing boys, other boys.
That can be true. And even if you see her doing that, she must feature shopping as well she's doing, are you saying she's seeing boys, but we look, we saw that she was shaking hands with another boy.
That must be a colleague from work. It must be someone she knows maybe some he'll make any excuse he can. Because who's talking?
The Queen inside? Exactly. emotions have taken over now what they're talking about when they're trying to appeal to him. They are talking where the king, the king, all the kings are talking to this person's queen.
And the queen is like,
I listen to no king right now.
When I mean,
I'm in love, I don't care. He wants to just fulfill its love. Okay, it takes sometimes a long time for this emotion to go down. And finally the person realizes the mistake they made. And then the king takes over and said, I told you so. I told you so. And sometimes what happens is the prince for example, you get these youngsters, you get others, you got people, even adults, even adults, they do things they're not supposed to do. Let's say for example, a youngster is got a bad crowd, okay, they've got drugs, all things that are in a situation that what happens is easily the prince comes in, comes into power.
Saturday night, out with friends, no parents are there. See if the parents were there, the parents would act from their kings, you understand? The parents kings will tell the son, son, you're not doing this. But the parents are not there. It's all my friends. And all the friends, all of their naughty princes are out.
Design. All of their naughty princes are out. maybe one or two might not have the naughty Prince are okay. But all of them, most of them are in a mood of Let's go. Let's go and get a car. Let's burn the tires. Let's drive down there. Let's go and see so and so, Hey, he's got something there. Let's go to his house. And when they go there, the guy pulls out some, you know, some stuff from underneath his bed. And then he says, Hey, you guys want some? And the naughty Prince is that in everybody? Even if at the moment this young kid came along? It's his first time. And his naughty Prince says.
And even if there's fear inside, and the other Queen comes out says no, no, no, this might be dangerous, even if the king is saying no blah, blah, blah. Even if all it is happening
there no two princes is still got this stick in the hand.
And he could be wise enough at that time to allow the king to take it off him. But you know, most likely, he's just gonna say let me just try. Let me show that I'm also someone who's brave who's got the who's got the power. who's who's like these only if I don't take you right now they're going to call me all sorts of names. They're going to tell me that I'm just a little, you know, whatever.
I'll be bullied after this. So he'll take it.
That's the naughty Prince. Even an adult, sometimes an adult does something they do something wrong. they they they do some damage, and then we'll do some more damage above that. And they'll try and hide it by burying the evidence. What about all the naughty prints inside? Now? I said to you there's one other individual other individual was
the wise minister. Otherwise minister, one thing I didn't tell you about the wise minister is how is he so wise,
the Wise minister is has actually got a room inside the palace. And that room has got a closet. And our closet has got two books. And those two books are the sources of all the wise man's wisdom.
He goes to the closet.
He opens the closet, takes the two books out, he studies them. And when he speaks after that, Whoa, it's game over. The king is in all the queen is in all the naughty Prince just has to put his head down and say these are the best things that we've had.
Who's this wise minister, the Wise minister in us is this rule
is the war, the soul. Each and every one of us has a soul soul is the one that goes out to the accurate soul is the one that was pumped inside his body at the time of birth. Soul is the thing that will live on you know in Jannah in a different body forever, but this body is going to be gone.
That soul is a rule. The rule is always inclined towards Allah and His Messenger salons The rule is rule has always connected now the rule has has got one when the rule
I will take the Quran
this book number one on the road looks at the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah has more than a hadith when the roar this the the soul insiders, when it connects with the Quran and the Sunnah and it's filled in with that, it will only speak from there to the whole of the body.
So the roar inside us is always connected towards the astronaut always connected towards Allah. It's the good person inside it's the most wisest thing inside us. However, just as I said to you before, the room doesn't fight inside to try and take the stick
will only be the
king or the queen or the naughty Prince.
But the rule can have the king hand it over to him hand the magical stick over. The King insiders can say to a roar, roar. What do we do here? And the roar is the one if you allow the horse to expand the soul, the soul when it is the currency, you know, when we hear the Quran, for example, and most of you sitting here you might not know what the Quran actually means. Okay? But when you hear
all levena Yabu nanny, or
Elena, when you hear those sounds,
then it's not your king that connects. It's not your queen that connects.
Though she has a part to it. The King also has a part to it. It's not just your prince that connects it's the ruler as the wise minister, because that part of us straightaway gets attracted to and the whole of the king the Queen the prince Wallabies is no when that happens.
Say a pulusu
nassima one. My
name is Ashley.
When you hear that, you know what's contained inside you is the rule that comes into power.
When you hear that and you feel calm inside is the rule has the wise minister suddenly has been handed over something and when he is calm.
And when he is dictating Oh my god, everything's you know.
Sometimes we come and we listen to something. Also sometimes we do some Vicar and we connect with a lot of people, whether it's in Salah in tilava just normal Vicar this contemplation sometimes some of us have gone to the haramain sometimes some of us have felt very close to a lie in Ramadan, you know all those times it happens. You know which one is really connected is the wise Minister and the wise minister if you fill it in with the two books from the two books, which is Quran and the Sunnah when I say book I'm calling the Sona book but obviously it's a collection of books but when you fill it in and you take what Allah and His Messenger have said, the king knows your logical side knows
your queen knows your emotions know your prince your ego all of it knows that know what these are the best words ever.
Johansson these are the best words ever. And they fall completely in front of it submissive but what happens is very soon the king will take it back again. And as soon as the King takes it back and there's gonna be fight with the emotions and the fight with the with the ego to take it over.
Now brothers and sisters Well, this is why I'm saying this is because
we have got this battle inside us
from birth, all the way till death. This battle is gonna go inside us. It depends who you put in charge. The best Kingdom you can have of your body is when the prince is being controlled by the queen. So the ego is under the emotion
and the emotion says hey, you did you did take that you dare take it from now if the emotions are controlling that. And then the king our logical side says to the emotional side the Queen says hey, Madam, listen, you listen. You stay where you are. Can you just look after the prince? Don't let him get out of out of you know.
Check. And you wherever you are. You don't take the sick of me. Okay, let me
We tell you and the prince what to do. And let me tell the hot man, Let me control all these sevens. But the king can't do it on his own. If the king doesn't connect to the rule, the Quran and the Sunnah, if the king doesn't connect to all of that and take guidance from that, the king can be lost. Because there are a lot of people on this earth who've got a king working brilliant, but they've got no rule that guides it. Isn't that brilliant people out there don't get me wrong the balance people but they've got no soul that is connected to a lion is messenger. And if they haven't found that side, they'll still be lost without that soul without the Quran and the Sunnah without
that closet that has got the two books that give the information to the soul. So if the soul does rule if the rule Okay, which is our soul, if that is under the Quran and Sunnah.
And if the robot is able to say the logical side, listen, this is the guidance you need rule like this, and the logical size Okay, fine. I will control the emotions. And I will also control the, the desires that I've got. If that happens, and it's a perfect person, you've got you've got fully control of yourself, go full control of yourself. And if you can carry this on, from now on when you've heard this all the way till you die, then Masha Allah, Allah, you've got a wonderful life.
But anytime you felt
that, oh my god, I'm having a bad day here. You better know that something's gone wrong. Either your prince is taken over, or your queen is taken over. And you better get the stick back. Because otherwise there's going to be chaos. Okay. And some people what happens is
they don't realize that going through this battle, some people just don't realize there's been years and years of them functioning just with the prince. You know, like some druggie comes out, some person comes out of the streets and suddenly comes to the master. Suddenly, he turns to the dean, you know, for years, he allowed his Prince to talk to say whatever.
Did you guys do you guys understand? you could you could be here, some people, their emotions are in powerful years, whether it's a man or a woman, look, I'm not. I'm not being sexist in any way by saying that the Queen's emotional is just an example to get you in. But in my example, the men have got queens, and the women have got queens, and the men have got kings and the women have got kings as well.
Like in the story of Solomon, and Solomon, Bill keys, see when Bill keys said,
What do you guys say to this letter that has come to me women remember the story? When she gets a letter? She says, What do you say? And you know, the servants are all her all her courtyard sort of ministers, they all say, an army. They say, you know, what? is a lucapa. We've got a man, we can take him on.
The speaking from where
we can take them on, let's begin from where
emotions, they were threatened. That emotional speaking from here on the queenside, when she said, Let me send him a gift and see how he responds. She was testing him out, what was she using a kink.
And therefore she stopped herself from a lot of, you know,
great war that could have taken place between her and cinnamon and a salon. She did.
When you look at the, when you look at the lives of all the profits, you will see, they don't allow they don't they don't have any of the whims and desires or egos taken over at all, as completely under control.
But their emotional side still doesn't get a chance. They're ruling from here. And the wise minister, they're ruling from there. And if you look at if you analyze what is going on, so for example, let me give you another example. If you're home and you're thinking, why is my dad speaking like this to me for just think to yourself,
I don't want you to go to your dad today and say dad, that Queen of yours You better controller, oh boy.
You're gonna get some slap boy.
But I just want you to understand what is going on because sometimes what happens is when the when the mom and dad are in a little bit of a, you know, turbulence and they're fighting with one another, what usually is happening is they're both talking from the queen in the sand. And both talking to the queen. And it's very strange is people can people can even change. Power give different powers to different people when they talk to different people. So for example, yeah, the man is in his house. He's like talking to his wife. Hey, what do you what what and he's watching you. What do you mean and they're in the middle of a
And suddenly the phone rings. Okay, suddenly the phone rings and he's got to take this call is from his workplace. Now just now he's talking to his wife and his or her. what's what's what's leading him?
The Queen, emotional Queen, right? Suddenly he takes the he takes the phone in his hand. He says, Oh my
Yeah. All right. Yeah. Tomorrow, seven o'clock on the dot, you make sure that you there? Yeah. Make sure y'all bring the paperwork done.
puts it down.
What happened there who was talking about
you switch this right King for that one, Queen for this one. Sometimes what people do is in the same household, they can develop a lot of emotions for one person.
Bad emotion, good emotion. It could be bad, it could be good. When you develop those emotions, you get controlled by the Queen each time you're in contact with that person.
But then when you're in contact with another person, you switch it to to maybe the king and then the opposite. Some people have three, right? So for example, you talk to, let's say, your parents.
You talk from here.
You talk to your wife, you talk from here, sometimes their emotions.
And you talk to your friends. You talk to them from here you go naughty Prince. Yeah.
We just go down there, man, we just do.
Just get out of it, you know, break the rules. That's Prince with them. Queen with the wife, King with the parents. People have all of this. And what's happening is sometimes what happened is that even you talk about it. That is there's a couple here. Every day, they're going through different shifts. Sometimes every day, they're going to different shifts. So when it's a good day, when it's a good day, both of them husband or wife could be talking to each other from the queen, but the Queen's happy now see the Queen's not angry, the Queen's thrilled and happy in love. So both of them can speak to each other from the queen, which is gonna be fine. It's gonna be for this this works.
Because his queen is happy. Her queen is happy. The both in they're having a wonderful time together, talking to each other is going to be fine. It's a nice day. Suddenly, after a few hours, it could be next day whenever, you know, something's triggered one of them off. Okay, so his queen gets a bit upset with her queen. Don't forget the very emotional the turbulence so his queen could get upset. Her Queen could speak you don't know what's going on? Hey, why you seen that before? Why? Why? Because she's still in a happy mood until she can switch. She can switch. If at that time when she switches. She says hey, I'm better let my kid take over.
If she says that, then she'll start thinking straight before she says anything. She was thinking straight. She's
not no no. Don't you dare say that. No, no, no, no, no, that's gonna get you in trouble to the king is the one that thinks ahead. The Queen don't think ahead. The Queen wants to blur now. And I'm saying revenge time.
The King thinks ahead. Queen and Prince they don't think ahead. It's only the king that can think ahead. So if the if the power is it's time to the king in the person, the person will know that this person is angry with me. This person is upset with me. But you know what? I'm going to zip up.
I'm going to stay quiet. I'm going to allow the storm to go by
I'm going to come down and coolly I'm going to cool it off. It's gonna it's gonna hurt for the for the Queen not dying to take Give me the stick. Let me say whatever. No. And the king says
because the Kings got servants right? The tongue. The eyes is everything under control. The arms don't control the kings. They said coo coo. Okay, fine. Say what you want. Have you met people like that? Even in an emotional situation? They stay calm. Have you met those people?
Have you met those people? Guys? Come on? Yes. Well, those are the people who who assign a lot of power to the king. Even in emotional situations we can learn. We can learn how to allow the king to be empowered. We've all got this power inside of you choose I choose who you want to give the power to.
I remember once when I was I was about 16 years old.
And I had a friend
and this friend I used to hang around with him every single day.
And one day what happened is I knew he used to smoke. I never smoked. I knew he used to smoke and he you know when we stopped walking, he takes his target. He just lights it up and he has it fine. He has
If I don't have it, okay, but there's a good friendship between me and him. And after so many days, what happened one day is he took his cigarette out. He liked it. And he said to me, he said, you wouldn't try.
Now, of course, me being his friend, you know, we're going to be Princeton. Princeton is and not in that sense, you know, I'm saying like, you know, Prince a prince, right? So that time, you know what I did, I switch straight away.
To my king.
I just did it. I said to him, listen, I said, I'm your friend. But if you ever offer me that, again, our friendships over
have a meditator
I just straightaway just demonstrate without gaining emotion with him. And so Australia, if you ever offer that to me, again, friendship is over. I said, I understand. Fine, you just took your cigarette back because I didn't have any idea. I didn't ever bother saying that to him again, because he never bothered bothered ever handing it over to me or giving offering it to me, you understand. We have the power to assign the power to whoever we want. It's all in our mind. And if you choose on a bad day, see when when the when it's all gloomy, and people are in a bad time and a bad time. You can choose whoever you want to give the power to. And you can change your mood. You
don't have to be like everybody else who's moody. You don't have to be let me give you a story.
You might find this really awkward here. We were in 2008 you were in Spain. But going back a few years now. Okay. In Spain, all the other five men, my colleagues and so on with all our wives, children, everyone we went okay, we had two big vans. We were out there in the in the in Spain and the place that we're a hotel was was in the middle of nowhere. He was like in some mountainous area. Okay, it wasn't a proper hotel, but it was like a place where to stay. It was the middle of the mountains when you took your Sat Nav your GPS to that location, Sat Nav did not work. And son, Sat Nav couldn't find any connection finito, in the sand, gone.
So what happens is we're coming back to our place and now it's 12 o'clock in the night. completely dark middle of the mountains. No streetlights is dark. Okay. Plus, on top of that, we have to go up the mountain near the mountains. So it's got roads at the side here of the mountain. You know what there's no barriers
if you fall
you end up in Jannah
Allah insha Allah as Have a look at see you can always think positive. I was thinking if I'm dying inshallah Jana you're gonna think positive You know, I'm saying you can't say oh my god, you're gonna be worried for the rest of your life man.
So the thing is, we're going up this mountain and down and up and down. You know what there's no GPS we're just following instinct. There's two vans one ahead of us all the some brothers and their wives in there. And this van were me some other brothers and our wives are inside this one. And we just following we following that one? Okay, they're ahead of us. We follow that when are we going up and down? The mount is up and are we losing track? And as 20 minute journey became a two hour journey in the middle of the night pitch. You just can't see anything. Right? And it's dangerous and you're on the mountains and you know what you got so many fears. Because you know, at that moment if
you feel you can you can slowly Ollie man, you can have robbers. You can have hijackers you can have genes, you can have all sorts of things that might take over you You put your fears, oh my god, anything could be a spider who could be anything. See if you start worrying about anything.
Now what happened is when they ran behind, and I thought to myself, you know what, this is looking really gloomy. This looks really really bad. Yeah. So all of a sudden, yeah, I switched. I switched in Simon said, You know what, there's no point of bringing the emotions in and fear and anxiety.
Weaver so you know, why did I switch? I start laughing about printer. Yeah, I will print out and I start laughing and I start cracking jokes.
And you know, slowly, everyone in my van, they all got into cracking jokes, and we laugh and we laugh so much here. You might think I'm crazy, but I did this. And the reason why I did this because I thought you know what, if you're going to go to Geneva tonight, we might have to go smiling in
so everyone's cracking up cracking up to the extent that some people said they said to me Stop, stop. Let me stop. You know when your stomach hurts. Yeah, when you love someone just have a gut. There's a stop. And we love to laugh to laugh all the way for the full two hours and when we came at the van Yeah.
We were laughing and laughing at the van. We came to a hotel after two hours, two o'clock in the night we came out with a lovey, lovey, and the other guys came at the van. And when we looked at their faces, we thought those guys have seen a ghost.
They were so serious. They came out grumpy. They came up mean face. They came out like, you know, it's been the worst journey ever in their life. When they came out, we looked at it we say,
what's wrong with you? This
was it was
They said, We read surah Yaseen we read, which is a good thing. Right? So he has seen Sora Yeah, we read we read pseudogene we read surah Nast. Voila, we read our customers who read our days read
it in the loser cable, which is good. Look, I'm talking wrong, which is really good. All right. Now we did some liquor as well. Don't get me wrong, we pray to Allah. But don't get me wrong here, please. But these guys put fear into it.
They had the most probably traumatic experience. Anyone could have those two hours were the worst two hours they could have experienced. And you know what I knew in my van, if we will just stay quiet. That's exactly what would have happened. Yes. Do as we did. Don't get me wrong. They could. We did. Yeah. But then I switch the mood. And we will have a nice laugh. Yeah. But those guys talked about, not just dogs as a kid, they start saying we're scared of singing with a voice therapist jeans.
These kind of jeans, waisted jeans on mountains. Really weird in theory,
even if you didn't see, and I'm sure they would like it because of the amount of laughter that we had. Right? We basically had a wonderful time now because it was in that movie. What I would have told you is that when you're in that position where everyone's Moody,
you don't have to be moody. When everyone's having a bad day. You don't have to have a bad day. When everyone's thinking oh my god is the worst thing ever happened. You don't have to, like I'll give an example. We just have Brexit right
everyone's like everyone's kicking their feet every day Briggs it oh my god, this is gonna that's gonna Oh my god.
Before Brexit I was telling people you know, don't don't vote for it, man just vote to remain. As I was wanting to put my hands up, as I talked about before talking about after some of you must have stuck to the law. Now voted to stay fine. That's my thing. But then what happened is we lost.
Right? As in, we Brexit. Okay, now they got a new phrase, the quality of regret. No regret, regret.
So anyway, what is straightaway that night, soon as the news came in, that was a mind to the morning that the votes were counted. And we basically it means Brexit happened. You know, the silly thing was the biggest Google hit the next morning, the biggest Google question was in the morning. Yes, it is. The morning after Brexit has happened. The biggest Google question was, what is Brexit?
You idiots, you idiot. You didn't even know what it was what article 50 they didn't even know what it was. And they voted for anyway. How does what I did is
I'm not gonna say that, you know, I had colleagues telling me they went into work and it was like somebody had died.
They went into work and people will mourn people who just slumped in front of the computers and thinking
What happened? This is in London I'm not talking about other cities other cities upholstery a
Africa when I woke up right by the way over here people were very happy in London. You know me I was just saying
yesterday I was having a good time. Today I'm gonna have a good time right because you know what, if you're going to be moody because of fear because of what you think might happen Brexit even today's really bad but we every day we hear in the news this is gonna happen by 2017 it's just gonna collapse the the Asian indexes is you know turbulent the moment they start all this stuff you know, I really I love thing so seriously so
even if I have to pay extra pounds and extra money and I'm gonna you know, satellite the rest of you know, no way am I gonna? Slowly passing on the good
work Brexit. You know, if you do that to yourself, you you you just for your mood because of yourself. So what do I do? I concentrate on a hadith where the prophets of Allah said to us, doesn't matter what the situation is for the believer is always good.
Doesn't matter what the situation is.
In as far back to raw, somewhat of a Corolla, if an affliction befalls him and he'd has patience, then that thing affliction becomes good for him.
bread's is supposed to be an affliction for us and I have suffered with hamdulillah. So it means summarizing, not gonna say anything that you move on with life and hamdulillah not gonna complain,
probably lost weight as well, but who savoir when a good thing comes to him, Shakira takahama. And he is thankful, and that's a good thing for him, right? We never lose that this is the positive mind, we'd never lose. So if you want to assign at that time, to the queen, and become emotionally become emotional, if you want to prove to the kingdom say, No, everything's fine, then everything's fine. And you choose what you want to be. Now, the reason why I'm saying this is because we end up sometimes it's the adults being gloomy. And being so sad, over something which you made a massive issue out of
massive issue. I mean, I'll be I'll be straight with you, I get it the other day, the year, a few years back, I need to say this, some of you might be in a situation a few years back.
Some of the schools that my kids were going to, and this happens, this happens, by the way, okay, some of those normal state schools, my kids were going to the exam results, and the levels were being played with.
Temporary, why? Because my kids are brown like me, and I'm
proud to be brown hamdulillah. And some people who are not Brown, who are more privileged, need to make sure that brown people don't take their place, you know, I'm saying, now the Brexit plan.
So what happens is, over time, two, three years, whatever, my child's you know, he's going down in levels when he's actually performing well, and as his teachers are finger playing again, because the thing is, they don't want the brown kids and these other foreign, whatever, whoever they are, to get the most privileged places in, it happens. And my wife was coming every day to me and saying, this happened, this happened, this happened, and so on. What I did is I said, Look, I said, Don't worry about everything, don't worry about it, he's gonna come to a bad grade, he gets he's gonna get bad grade by year six, then he goes into year seven and new secondary school, he starts from the bottom,
he's gonna carry on going towards the bottom, I said, don't worry about it.
Yes, we will deal with it. But we need concrete evidence. Number one, we need concrete evidence. Now I believe at that time, she was talking more from her Queen, I was talking a bit more from my king, it happens. And what happened is, I thought to directly say, look, keep your head screwed on time, bring the evidence, when you bring the evidence, concrete evidence, they cannot deny them will present that let's not go to the school and say, You must be doing this, you have to be doing this. That's not act on suspicion.
So after a while, we've got gather some evidence, we managed to get somewhere to the head teacher, she had, she saw some of it, some of it wasn't making sense to her from what the teachers were saying.
We got some of it in but you know what, still we failed to get the get the real level that our kids should have had by the end of year five, I said, don't worry about it. I said Why? I said because the last exam that he's going to have his SATs in year six is going to be externally moderated. It's not going to be internally moderated. Don't worry about it. Because people externally won't look at who he is. They'll give him his right, Mark. And that's exactly what happened. For those two years. Unfortunately, you know, there's a lot of turbulence going on in my house with my wife saying things, things, you know, like, these teachers are doing this too. And I had to somehow keep things
balanced to the best of what I could. Of course, sometimes even I would get terrible and like, just you know, someone's being so emotional with you. Sometimes you get to be emotional, but then you have to cool yourself down. You have to come up, give the power back to the king and say, Look, calm down, don't worry, let's deal with the property. Let's not say things that we're not supposed to say. Let's not go out of our way in ways you're not supposed to go now, I'm giving this example why some of you at work need this. Some of you at college needed some of the university maybe some of you at home, maybe some of you in your marital life need this, whatever it is, go ask yourself who's
in power when you talk to those people?
Who have you assign the power to have you signed the power to the king, to the queen, to the to the you know, down there to the ego. And in the Quran according to plan. I'll give you the names down. The wise minister inside you Israel has said that the king inside you, right is the Apple, Apple. When Allah says no Quran, Allah, Allah.
Allah say, Allah say, do you want to use your king over your emotions, they came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and they start to deny
they denied the verses. Why? Because it was emotion.
It was power, their power is going to go in maximum karma. If they agree to Mohammed Salas and the whole power dynasty, everything's gone. So they got arrogant.
They became proud over the heritage. They started to get the emotional swelling up and they wouldn't use their king when they talked to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Allah said if Allah alone Are you not going to use your Apple your intellect your logical side use it you make two and two and you come to a four instead of two and two and making whatever number you want
So Allah is telling them after that 30 don't use your Apple This is the why this is the king inside us. And when people use the emotion where's the where's that in the Quran? Is the
law said you know in the hologram many different places the color is something that changes and changes. Right? And it's emotions always going up and down with different turbulences sometimes good sometimes bad, right? We look in the crowd you'll find many different emotions. hassle jealousy. That's that's something rooted in Nepal. Now it's not it's not from the logical side you never get jealous. You don't you don't logically get jealous with someone you emotionally feel jealousy these are feelings that you have
and the desires a lot said How
is the ego How are
nuts allow you the word must allow you to add hobbies or passions desires, analysis palette category.
Don't follow the passions and desires don't use succumb to the to the to their desires, but you become neither This is addressing the knifes directly and if you look in the Quran, you will find all of them will find the How are the patterns that no different standard will find the emotional Queen and all the turbulence if people have 100 we find them here and you find that how can you find the intellect and above that you find a lot talks about the person's own self where they have the spirituality This is the hook inside the person.
And then Allah says the whole Quran he said he says if you look in Surah
Surah number 39 surah Zuma, Allah says
so mattock, shaibu makuu Milla de crema,
the skins, the heart, everything gets inclined towards the remembrance of Allah when, when the rule is in connection. That's the only time it happens. The wise minister comes in connection, it happens. Now look, there are many connections that are happening with us every single day with a lot of people. And I want you to think right now, what is the connection that you're making? Sometimes you could even come across a paper write some papers, tabloid papers and tabloid papers. They're actually they don't appeal to the logic.
They appeal to ego they feel the emotion most tabloid papers, they appeal to emotions and to the ego.
broadsheet papers what they used to call broadsheet papers, they appeal to the
to the right side the whole thing that went wrong with the Brexit thing you know, what they did, they emotionally drew derailed half the community through the emotions emotions, they told him I love the fear you know, when politicians use fear they use their getting your emotions to feel and to make judgments. When really if at that time you sat back and you said listen, let me think about this property. What am I doing why let me get the facts right the most of time when you get facts together is to keep working and you make the right judgment you look far ahead people were looking at what what they didn't even know Brexit was tentative even know what it was and there was making
judgments and the following popular hearing popular say and he is saying whatever it was they were acting according to that why because the emotions are connected with other people's emotions when you find I'll give you another example Yeah. When suddenly when suddenly you've had a bomb go across the world
some some bombing has happened you know the general reaction of the people in our city you know what's what thinking well tell me what's in control in San Antonio
emotions is the queen queen takes over most cases the Queen comes out oh my god, terrorists for Lola you know these are these are all people talking from the queen
and then you let the dust settle in dust settle that afternoon while the people start talking from the king again Now not all Muslims are vase not all law in all these that whatever the day there will be more sense and some people don't talk sense at all. They just want to always they've got this you know this pre notion thing about you and what they think of you Why? Because they haven't allowed the actual the intellect to, to question the emotions and the thoughts inside. Muslims can do this. non Muslims can do this when you don't allow your Apple to come in and start rationally making, you know sense out of what what's going on inside you. When you don't allow that part to
take place to take authority. Then you're going to start with
bad decisions. You make bad decisions. Some parents are stuck for a very long time and always reprimanding the children like the queen.
They don't think for a while, you know that they're supposed to treat them in a balanced way. Some parents, very few parents will find they with the ego, the gift that dad's always like, you know, he don't care. He's always chilled out with his kids. There's always children, with his kids. It's not a good thing. If you're always giving your power to your prince, and you're rooting Your husband is not good thing.
And sometimes, you know, people get it wrong. they they they move the wrong thing. Even people if they have to have the intellect fine, but they're not taking from the Quran. The sooner you can make decisions are bad. You can make bad decisions, according to Muslim countries now.
Are there any questions right now before we end?
Sure, you might have some questions. Okay.
All right, what's the difference between the spirit and soul I think the diff two different terms that they use, if you actually go to the biblical source, they use it in different way. But sometimes they used both word spirit and soul are used for one another. Sometimes they use one other I think, in our sense, in essence, we don't have to be bothered by the by the terms. I think just to know that it's a soul, you can say it's a spirit inside meaning the soul sometimes they refer to that the soul, but sometimes in Christian, sort of biblical biblical references, they refer to them as two separate things.
Anybody else questions?
How can you visualize the wise ministers? Good question. I mean, the thing is, look, when the wise minister is when
everything inside the body is really calm. And it's, it's something that the roof is connected to the aka is not disconnected as well. You're not talking about calmness in this world. In any other way. We're talking about calmness in a person where they have connected up with a creator. When that those feelings come in, into a person, then you should know that your wise minister is the one that's just giving giving you direction. Sometimes we all people have experienced this, sometimes you're in a drought or something. And you really feel you're not emotional, but you really calm and you know, you can almost feel like your whole body is breathing differently. Now sometimes you do
Vicar of Allah, and after that your whole body is actually just breathing. So calmly, you know what that is? That's your role, and the role has now just got some power.
Okay. Any other questions? Yes.
Ah, that's a very good question.
I like that. I like that question, I think is a very integral part of the whole talk that we were doing. And I think I would have missed out on that. If it wasn't for your question. How do you actually maintain the power? Are you saying is how you actually give the power to the right things inside you? It's very good question because a lot of
it says Allah the decree of
Allah says, The hearts will become completely at rest, through the vicar of Allah through the remembrance of Allah. See, the remembrance of Allah is the only thing. And when I say remembrance of Allah, there are three forms of remembrance of Allah. Number, that last one is when the tongue is moving with Allah as remembrance, but the mind, the psyche, wherever you recall, it, is, is absent, it's thinking about something else. That's the longest you get reward for it, but there's no effect on the body. The higher one is when the target when the when the mind is thinking of Allah, but the tongue is not moving. So you're just thinking of Allah was just thinking of his creation, amazing
things that he's, he's created. And so whatever it is, or you might just be thinking about a verse of the Quran, something that is deeply you know, Chronicles, you know, from cinema.
That is that is a vicar. Although just general contemplation you this is a higher form, and it actually has an effect inside you. It has an effect inside you, and you get more reward for it, but it's not the best, the best is when the tongue and the mind are both doing the decodable law. So the tongue is moving by saying something Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, you know, whatever it is, the tongue is moving or reading or reading the Quran, but the mind is also present. So he's also thinking about what he's reading, thinking about we say, okay, when that happens, that's the highest form of Vicar and this is the very factor that allows
Inside this the wise Mr inside to gain power. So the more of that you give to yourself, the more the wise Minister and the king make connection, right and your logical sizes, you know, because the rule needs to have his presence if the wise minister doesn't come and see the king, the king doesn't, you know, think I've even given it to him. So to make the presence of the Lord inside you. And there's many different descriptions of what the rule is, if you go into the early scholars writing, some have said the rule has one place and I've said it's it's expanded a drawer is definitely something that expands. Now, some studies just over here by the heart, some have said this down there some
offset is spread out all over the body. What I say is, and this many scholars have said this in the past is the rule is something that does expand and shrinks or expands or shrinks. The more Vickery you do, the more the room expands in the body.
The less you do, the more it's sort of, you know, just just restrain yourself in one part of the body. When you do a lot of that you can almost feel that there's a presence of the roar inside your body, you can almost feel that your whole body's got some sensation that it doesn't normally experience. When you really connect with your tongue and your mind with the vicar of Allah. That's what happens. And the more often you do that, the more of a power it will have automatically from your king, your logical side will say you know what i want to follow. So what happens is, you know, let me give you an example. When people get used to sin a lot, it's a prince that is just, you know,
in control for control. But when people get used to the Sharia and to the poor and the Sunnah to the good side and so on.
By the way, by the way, I will use that word Sharia It doesn't mean you know Coco, Coco, Coco, Coco, right? All right, whoever listen to this, right? Sharia means the Quran Sunnah, okay. So when people actually love to follow the Quran, the Quran, Sunnah, you know what that is, that is when the rule has gained enough power that the Queen just just is completely arrest with it. The princes are rescued, that's what Allah mentioned, Allah biddick let Optima in everything will become will become so tranquil to the power of, of that that soul inside or the power of the person deciding you know, to do good, it just happens automatically. But if a person fails to connect with Allah for a long
time that power power will go because it's just the rural shrink, the prince will come out and take power eventually and the person will be the same set same tempo what you've asked is a very important thing because you know a movement a believer who's actually his who's ignited the right things inside him who's actually got the ruins it you don't want to la sala Harrison was telling us how a person a believer is calm in situations when things are turbulent. That's a believer with this rule. That's that's come out and he's got taco taco is a is a massive thing. Only the rule can really, really push forward. The root of the soul work to talk why because it works with the art of
the article says Don't worry, there's no worry. It puts the emotions at bay. You don't come out so it's just the art on the roof says look me vitola and arco says I've got to make sure I've got the means in place it will do that. So when you've got your means in place, and the Lord says, leave it to Allah. Everything's fine, you know, the whole body's fine, and even something goes wrong.
They don't allow the emotions to come place. The article says what like Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said he said when something goes wrong, he said Adama Masha
it was something a lot decreed it was going to happen anyway. It happened Let's move on. That's the roar tawakkol and the logical side after Allah Masha Allah working together and they have a brilliant that you can you can be brilliant human on this earth once you've got that ignited inside you in the right way. Okay, so exactly for that question. Any other questions?
Yes, 120 days of pregnancy, an angel comes to the to the fetus and blows in the soul according to hadith of Buhari, and that's when the rule actually enters the body. Okay. And Other questions?
To stop it. Yes. So yeah, you're right. I think you're a good point there. I mean, it can be hard with it can be hard to stop enough sometimes as well if it gets too powerful inside, right. But sometimes the right emotion can be very hard to stop, especially if it's like a fast train. When the train is is in full power speed. Yeah, you
Got to put the brakes on fine. It'll take another three miles four miles for that train to come to a complete halt. Right. That's how emotions are and it's quite dangerous to give it that much power. So therefore the logical side always needs to keep track track of it and your ID can be hard to control. And what else? final questions? No. Okay, hope this has been a beneficial session.
