Holly Dean Effie,
Allahu wa see you.
brothers and sisters who are listening,
Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us this opportunity to come to a Hubble Villa de Ly,
to come to the most beloved place of the whole of the earth,
most beloved place in the whole of the earth and for us to sit here and for us to discuss what is outside of the most beloved place to Allah subhanaw taala is in a Sahih Hadith are Muslim. And of course, when you go to the bazaars, when you go to the marketplaces, when you go outside into places where people are
away from the vehicle, away from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala, then they those places that have been mentioned by our Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, as Abu Dhabi will be the beloved in ally, as well. The most hatred of places to Allah subhanho wa Taala most dislikable places other marketplaces. Now you take the two places,
you see one is the masjid where the suit is taking place. And one is the place where the soap and people are shopping and people are making their transactions and they're making their commerce and trade. So this one where the sujood where people are prostrating in front of Allah subhanaw taala He is known as the absolute most beloved old of all places. So out of the whole of this area, this is the most beloved piece of land to Allah. And out of these walls, when you get to the marketplaces, those places are the most disliked, of places to Allah subhanaw taala. And the reason why.
The reason is because
Allah subhanaw taala has given us a mission and he knows what is best for us.
He knows what is coming in front of us ahead of us, and he knows what is here right now. If any one of us if any one of us saw the reality of the earth era,
any one of us saw the reality of the era, then we would seriously understand why Allah subhanaw taala has said in the Holy Quran.
Allah Dena Manas guru la havik Kathy euro was at bihu kurata.
Allah, Allah subhanaw taala has asked us he has said in Surah, two, O you who believe, remember Allah, and remember him a great remembrance or most abundant remembrance, the Quran kashira abundantly remember him and by morning and by evening glorify His name and say how exalted Allah is morning and evening. So this ayah if you look at it, Allah is not only asking us just remembering, he says, remember him, but remember him a remembrance, which is my phone muddled up in Arabic, which is an emphasis remember him a lot. After saying remember him a lot. Allah says kathira
again, he uses the word, what abundantly or a lot. So remember him plenty fully and abundantly. And then he doesn't stop there. He says, What's up yo boo curato sila in the morning and in the evening, remember him as well.
Praise Him glorify Him in the morning and the evening. That is in terms of our remembrance with Allah. Why Because Allah Subhana Allah knows what we're heading for.
Allah knows what we going to do in this world. The condition that he has made us in is that we being in this world automatically, automatically because we are material we have got a material body to ourselves, and we've got a spiritual body. We've got a mission.
To body, and we've got a spiritual body both are inside every single human being here, the material body pulls one way, the spiritual body pulls a different way, the material body is attachment is to this world to this dunya. To the lowly life. See, Allah has given it the name dunya, the name is the closest one. And dunya means the low one. zero means the next one, an ashram is the one that is coming after. So the dunya, which is a lonely life, the material body of ours is attached to this world. And inside is the root and the spirit that Allah has created, that is attached to the next world. Now we've got two bodies, and we're working with these two bodies. And both of these bodies
are going to stay until mold comes. mold is the cessation, the ending of the relationship of the body and the spirit. See, when we hear in this world, you're in control, you're in control right now. And I do this to this, to this, to this, they remember this part.
Now the material body is in complete, complete command of the mind. The mind is part of the spiritual body, the inner part is the mind. Me and you right now we are not this material body.
Me and you we are this spiritual body within this whole material skull that Allah has given the eyes Allah has given this this eye, this eye is an Amana.
It's a trust from God.
These ears are a trust from God.
This tongue is a trust from God. In summary, one Masada one for the cooloola
Allah says what it says you're hearing.
Summer, while boss Are you seeing and your mind your heart. Whatever is going inside hula Bula caca nan houmous
on the Day of Judgment, I will ask everything about your ears, about your hearing about you seeing about your tongue, about your heart, about your mind.
your heart, I mean,
say oh Mohammed tell them my lord has prohibited My Lord has prohibited What? Alpha Male wahama bopanna one is Moldavia, Allah has prohibited all types of sins the outer and the inner, the outer and the inner. And this is an Amana. So what happens is when mold comes death comes and separates the roof from the body. Once that happens, the real self, the real Hasson, the real Mohammed and the real Ibrahim the real Sarah whichever person is comes out.
And this body is a piece of a dead thing. It's a material thing. And then what happens is this amount of that Allah gave me
on the Day of Judgment, the body is resurrected again, the spirit moves on. The spirit goes through death, the soul goes to death. And then the soul will stay alive all the way till just before the day of judgment, when everything will be close to dead, to die. That's when the soul will also die. The body is dead already at the time of death, but the soul is living. The soul is living. When the time of death comes.
What is dead spiritual life. When the time of the blowing in the horn comes the spirit dies as well. The soul dies as well. And when the horn is blown again second time, both body and both spirit both soul and body come back up again.
Both but this time is a big difference to these brothers you can do this.
On the Day of Judgment You can't do this
except if Allah wills see here, the body is not under your commander to
on the Day of Judgment the body is not under my command is not under your command is going to be under last command.
That is why Allah subhanaw taala has said in the Holy Quran
nothing more. Nothing wanna fahima token nimona ad. What a shadow I will
be Makka Cebu law says today you've got no control over your mouths and over your ears and over your tongues over your hearts. Whatever you got you had. They were Amana. They were mine.
And today I take control over them and I will seal them
I will see you I will take control of your hands. I will tell you hands Tell me what did you do or hand? What did this person make you do? What did he make you do?
The foot. You know when you walk to the masjid,
you walk to the master just just wiggle your toes, brothers regulators on you remember this part, you will forget about how to read the literature that religion was not prevalent. And you will remember this part of the talk, you remember this part of the talk, and it'll make you remember the whole of this what I'm saying? This foot on the Day of Judgment, you get the foot we'll be talking and saying Allah. This soul used me as the Amana and the trust you gave to him to take it to the mustard to Hubble Believe it or not.
A shadow Arjuna Humvee mechanics of it will witness it to witness
and when a person takes it to the places of Haram, it will witness as well. And the person the day of judgment will say why. Lima Shaheed to Marlena corlew talkin en la escuela de takaku lashay the person will try to curse his own foot, his own hands, he will curse his own tongue, curse his own eyes curse his own is.
And they will say when you say why do you argue Why do you witness against me? And they will say, Are you an tokonoma? hula de takaku lashay. Allah has made us speak and Allah will make all of his creations speak today. Allah makes all of this because these are his, these are not yours. Who are you? Who are you? We are only a soul inside. And Allah knows this programming has done
the programming as well. That the body and soul together the material is always pulling downwards. And the soul part the spiritual part is always pulling upwards. There's a search inside the human being to find something greater, even in the non Muslims, non Muslims, why do you think philosophers exist? The philosophers that think about beyond what we see, why does man think beyond what we see because of the soul? The soul searches and it won't, it won't stop searching, the soul looks a piece, the soul lusso piece, the body is only a mechanism to receive peace. But the soul is the real one that is that can be content. Without something that Allah has made a function t with this body,
the soul cannot find eternal peace. It can't find eternal peace. So Allah has talked about the inner part of our bodies, and is given different names. And according to these different names, there's going to be different ways we find our attachment to either this world or to the next world.
And our brothers, some of us are my sisters that are listening some of us
we find this world sweet. And our material body is very much attached to the to this world. Why? Because we have tasted the sweetness of this world, but we haven't tasted the sweetness of the next world. See, when you take in your let's say you you're sitting down
and you eat you sitting down to eat. Okay, you're sitting down to eat. So you having a cup of tea, right? So normally normal people will take two sugars in the tea, right? And the sugars. One, two, depending on the spoon size
depends on when people tell you how many sugars? What do you say, Show me the spoon first.
Because sometimes his food is differently. One sugar, two sugars, whatever it is, let's say you used to two sugars
used to two sugars.
And somebody basically gave you
two sugars, you're gonna be fine with it.
You'll be fine with it.
But the thing is, when you taste something sweeter than that and you get used to that and the two sugars are not going to be enough yes or no to sugar won't be enough. You're sitting with sweetness and you've got a whole bowl of fruits are apples
or pears make you hungry now.
You can mangoes exotic fruits, you got pineapple and so on. Yeah.
If you have the mangoes first
and then you have the apples How will the apples taste? Come on, how will the taste
on a normal situation. Apples are not gonna taste that sweet. But if you have the apples first and then you have the mangoes next
Next what happens? You find yes apples nice as well and then the mangoes were even nicer. Yes Rasulullah sallallahu Rossum has said in dunya hubiera
he has said this dunya This world is sweet and it's green,
sweet and green.
So he has named this sweetness. He has said this dunya is sweet and sweet. This is in terms of our material body you will find it sweet. This is in one Hadith and societies. In a separate Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says
whoever has done one of three things or three things, what are the highlights what that person has found the sweetness of a man
so he has said that the sweetness of a man and he said there's a sweetness to this world. And the fact is that the two sweetness is a different this dunya is sweet. Let's let me know let me know you know some people say you know what, why is it that Allah has prohibited this and prohibited that and prohibited this and people question. You know it's enjoyable. And I'll say this, you know stuff will allow them to admit to the truth. The truth is sin. When you're in the nature of sinning is enjoyable.
That's why Allah has used the word taumata. He has said Fatoumata Phil Hyatt dunya Allen Allen. He said you may enjoy temporarily this lonely life
kulu tomato called Eden
kulu tomato kalila and in
eat and drink, eat and drink. And enjoy.
Enjoy or just eat and enjoy this world.
It will be because you can't enjoy too much the nature of this world is you can't enjoy too much. Because this sweetness of this world doesn't last very long. There's a bitterness that comes after the sweetness. There's a bitterness after that come with the sweetness. It's like have you had pomegranate?
tomatoes? I got pomegranate rumen Yes. Your panga is nice and sweet, isn't it? Yeah. Nice and sweet. You take the you take the pips, put it into your mouth, yes and sweetie until you bite into the seed.
Is that sweet?
It's not that sweet. It's okay. It's not that sweet. The same thing about this world, there's a sweetness outside of it. But inside when you get to the inner part, it's not that sweet. And it only lasts for a very short time. The sweetness of this world lasts for a very short time, whereas the sweetness of the era is everlasting. The sweetness of getting to a getting the spiritual body attached to Allah is everlasting. The sweetness of getting to know Allah and to make the heart We are attached to Allah is when you get full, full serenity, calmness, peace in life, peace in mind. So the biggest piece is a piece inside here.
The biggest piece of pieces I know some people they think that you know Sharla if I get you know if I move from where I am right now and get bigger house
car for three bedroom, then I'll go for a four bedroom and I'll buy a flat on the side. Then once I got my flat then I'll rent that one out and buy a second flat and I rent out one out the third one and then converting these houses and sell this one the marketplace I get another property another one then my car Mashallah. Turn to micro micro to something like a BMW. And then I'll be more nice can be underlap, two cars and three cars and I'll be living.
Yep. And they're just dreaming on. All right. The dreaming on
these these guys, actually one finger. Most people who think like the only few people are lucky that that make it through. And most of them don't even make it through. They've got a lot of bitterness that they that they that they look at, if they don't have the sweetness of the Aqua inside the hearts.
If they don't have it, tell you one thing is that most of these people that that dream of these this house and this thing, this thing and so on growing and the whole world that they're going to get for themselves there. They see all of that. But what is happening to them is they are making calculations based on this material world. And they're making calculation the sweetness of this world and they're making cotton
for themselves, but only for a temporary time. phone for a temporary time. What happens is Rasulullah Allah has told us two things. There's two types of Hina. See the word Athena means richness. And the word Athena is independence. Xena means richness. So for example, rajadamnern honey in Arabic means a rich man. But Raja Luna honey can also mean an independent man, someone who's independent Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam has said that the real richness,
the real richness is the richness of the heart
See a man who's sitting here and saying, I'm going to get this house and that car and this thing and that thing, he is trying to get rich, but rich have the material body rich in terms of this lonely life, and that person cannot ever get content.
contentment won't be there. Unless he is contenting making his heart content.
Allah says in in sand Allah pour out who's gonna Allah says what says, Man starts to go beyond Allah's limits.
When a raw who stuck now when he feels that he has become rich, in a sense that is independent from God. He has become independent from necessities and one some things that are around him, he's independent. But alas, Yvonne, do not give him contentment. Allah says in the Holy Quran, what he says,
Man, can you read?
dunia? Allah whoever wants this world whoever wants this lowly world knows he minha I'll give you part of it.
Alice bargain is what you want to go for the world. I'll give you part of it. And Allah says, Man, can you read our hero? Whoever wants the next world nezzie della goofy hathi
I will always continue to excel and exceed his cultivation. So if you're after the akhirah it's truly growing. If you are in this world, and your focus is on this world, then Allah says that I'll give you a portion of it. Another part of the Holy Quran in Surah Surah Allah says, Man Cana UD de la de la tarde Jana Allah houfy. Hi Manisha Lehman o de su Madonna who Jehan, Allah says whoever wants this this quick, quick thing. The world is very quick. The world is something hasty, the world something you want straightaway right now. I hear something in the distance. accurate, something is not tangible, accurate, something you can't see as it is in the distance. But the world is right
here right now. There's women, there's money, there's gold, there's temptation, there's things that the material body can enjoy straightaway. But the accurate the spiritual body it can't enjoy all these things straightaway. It has to wait for the for the fulfillment nourishment hold up for the full sweetness it has to wait for the Akela Yes, it will have sweetness time and again in this world. Allah subhanaw taala with all of us when we are doing Vicar of Allah when we didn't Salah when we're doing some kind of a bad and so on now and again Allah gives us a sweetness in our either yes or no brothers Come on. Now and again you feel really good. I wish I could stay like this in
this state law. You really feel that pouring your heart but that doesn't last the last forever brothers. It doesn't last why because Allah subhanaw taala if he made that last for us, if he made that last for us and for a long while and if he never gave us the feeling inside ourselves of sometimes, you know going against our desires not feeling like coming to the mustard nothing like worshiping Allah then we wouldn't get the reward that alas kept for us in the next life. See the reward Allah gives us for me feel sweet about worshiping Allah Yep.
is nothing in comparison with the reward when we don't like doing something and we do it
Have you ever I'm sure hope you've understood what I'm trying to say to you see when when we are light when I like to do something when I like to do my salon Mashallah Ramadan time, you know everyone's here and I'm here as well. Yep. Those times when I'm on a high you get low reward. But when you are making when you are make going against your nuts and your soul and you're trying to make it to the masala you're trying to do something good. And you're going against your knifes and against your desires. The reward of that alone knows how many much more times multiplied it is from the time when you had your sweet moments is much
Much, much more.
That's what allows us to give us a lot more. So he doesn't keep our sweetness all the time with him with we've made me want to make a worship with alarm when we're sincere to know when to turn to make our best sort of ways to get into know Allah will not always find the sweetest sound like it is now and again now and again. He wants to test us the last set, I'll test you with both. Shortly we'll hire defeat, evil and good all the time. I'm going to I'm going to test you you're going to find doubtful thoughts. Sometimes you're going to find that you've got things that are pulling you this way and you want to pull yourself and Allah loves it.
When we are pulling in the other direction. We don't know it right now. But Subhanallah you find a Hadith, Allah Subhan Allah both to the angels. And he says, Oh, my angels, Lu, oh my angels, look, look at my seven. Look at Myself and what my seven is doing for me, I laugh to Allah, when he when he hasn't given us the sweetness in our hearts. And we making that effort to Allah subhanho wa Taala that is more real worship. We've gone against ourselves, we haven't seen a lot. And we're going to do the best what the Sharia has said when even going against our desires, allow us to see that because Allah loves that loves that. Why? Because he can look at it seven, seven is not is not it's
not anything. It's not anything in his heart to tempt him to come towards him but he still comes, he still comes to him. Anyway, going back to this thing about Hina the man who is looking at this world and he looks at this world in terms of its is temptation.
Allah will give Allah says Allah hufa, Manisha, I'll hastily give what you want in this world quickly, I'll give it to you. But if you haven't made the connection with a la Madonna who jahannam after that you've got Hellfire woman, hero. masala has saya, Whosoever wants to Africa, and they strive for the Allies use the word striving for the acronym because you have to sometimes run for the Athena my brother's, when we are doing exercise, when you are getting yourselves fit. There's a point when your stamina says to you that that's enough. And so and then you push a little bit more. And then basically you get to a stage when you say, That's enough, when you push a bit more, as long
as you're pushing a bit more and pushing a little more. You then in the beginning, you could run five minutes in flat out. Yep. And later on, you can run for half an hour to one hour jogging and you still write yes or no. When you when you carry on the avasarala saya when you carry on saying yes, I'm gonna do bit more for lunch. I'm gonna do this thing for nothing for London. Hola. Hola. kanessa, Yoo hoo, Masha, Allah says, I will fully appreciate, I'm going to fully appreciate the striving that you have done for the accident for the next world. And what Allah Subhana does is he makes for the one who's attached to this world and material bodies attached to this world and he
sees all the material of this world, Allah subhanaw taala monkey making rich slightly making the study, but what will happen is that his heart is not independent. That's why I said allatheena renal.
The real richness is the richness of the heart. See a man who's sitting down who has little,
a man who's sitting down who has little, he might be in a three bedroom house. And he's content. He's happy. He's doing sugar. He says vahana law. There are people in the world who don't have a shelter over their heads. And law has given me three bedroom house.
The man who's even got a flat, two bedroom flat, one bedroom flat, whatever it is that you're living in. There's two ways of looking at anything Allah has given us. One is way the shocker.
And one is with a with Khufu the sugar and Khufu Allah said fascicle Allah said falguni as cuckoo wash guru Li wala Taku remember me keep me in your mind. I'll keep you in my mind.
That colony of cocoa. You keep me in your mind or keep you in my mind. Watch guru Li. You show me Thanks, Willa. Taku. Don't be ungrateful to me. The Grateful person is whatever loves giving me hamdulillah Alhamdulillah. This is renal.
This is what see the heart is not a slave anymore.
I'm not a slave anymore. I'm not a slave of this dunya the dunya does not demand upon me that I should wish for the next great car and wish for the next great business and wish for the next great expenditure of profit of sales. Whatever I've got, I'm not a slave of Yes, if Allah gives it to me, I'll say again and hamdulillah
If Allah gives it to me Alhamdulillah give me more Alhamdulillah Allah Allah, Allah doesn't give it to me Alhamdulillah if Allah doesn't give it to me, not in Allah
if Allah doesn't give it to me Alhamdulillah because Allah do me a favor, if sometimes Allah gives me too much
then I might start to you know, get the miniature body might take over the spiritual body, and I might get too attached to this market is going to get spoiled, and La sees all the reward on losing the Acura so he stopped in there and then
he stopped me.
Allah says in the Holy Quran
while obatala Horace Kalia Abadi,
Allah says well obas of Allah, if Allah had given an expansion of provisions to everybody, if Allah said, okay, you want this, take it, and you want that, take it and you want this much. Take that last lab, the whole thing out, there would have been a lot of corruption on the earth, there would have been a lot of corruption on the earth, to stop me from going to the sinful way. Allah will stop me somewhere that's called.
That's called cuddle cuddle is where he's going to stop me somewhere. And when he stops me, I'm going to recognize that ally is doing the best thing for me. He stopped me there. He doesn't want me to go maybe in the future who give you a bit more right now. He's decided that's how much I should get. That's how much I've got hamdulillah whatever situation what God Allah who Taka de la la Sinhala, Cora, I've given every person a proportion. Allah says, Allah says Allah Quran
that if I will,
in Ghana has a militia, Allah says, I've got everything. I've got a storage of everything you could ever, ever, ever want to desire for one man una Zulu, Casa de maloom. But I'll only give it to you in portions. So what's happening here is the one who has material what is attached to dunya. And he is tempting for more and it's tempting for more, he's sometimes tempting for something that is not written for him.
He's tempting for something that is not written for him. And sometimes these brothers, you know what they do, or these sisters, what they do is that they try and go so far to slightly rip off someone.
Because they think they're going to make that little extra way. And they try to, like,
bend the rule here and append the rule there. Yeah. And the thing you know, shall they say, ma'am, you know, if not, you know, please tell me the answer to the what's the answer?
If I win the lottery, and I basically build a mustard with these easy right?
If I do the lottery, and then I build a machine with the is your I cannot take the rest of it, you know, because I did a lot.
See, bending the rules and bending the rules, what happens is, if our laws written for you, you're going to get
20,000 pounds in one year, from one layer to another, to another ledger to Heather Allah wrote this person or written for him 20,000 pounds,
and 586 pounds, and 22 pence. If Allah wrote that will be precise as something is written for us, then you can only get that you cannot get a penny more, you can't get a penny less. So the brother who does a dodgy deal here and a dodgy deal there, he might make something extra more than the 20,000 pounds, he might go to 25,000 30,000 by the time he reaches before the next little huddle somewhere another way Allah will take that money away from
his business is going to make a loss here. His employees stole some money from here. He basically had his roof leaking in his car basically got accident by somebody. It wasn't his fault. He was just driving a boom. Yeah. So he's lost some money there. He's got a claim over here or Bangladesh. Someone is calling him he has to send some money over there. You know, he better give it or some someone asked for is this data, Indian 20,000 pounds 500. And whatever. 22 pounds is exactly what he's going to get by the end of the year. So the one who designed more and his material body was attached to this, what did he do? Did he get anything extra? He didn't get anything extra. But he
was running around like a rat in a race trying to get it. But the one who's hardest content without Allah has given one of the hardest content. He is not going to dissolve. He'll carry on working normal. He's not gonna sit down. See, the other thing is I'm going to sit down and say
my wife says, oh, the bill is here.
Okay, okay. Okay.
And basically after a little while, you know, again, I'm not gonna do any work, you're gonna grab Masonic, give me some money, because you forced him to take the money out of him to pay the bills, but that's not really right. You know, I'm saying
We have to work for ourselves. And also at the same time do sugar for Allah has given at the same time just basically work for what Allah has written for us in Nakata, and you'll get what Allah has written for today. But the main thing I was saying is that there's an inner part and there's an outer part there's a dinner, there's a, there's a richness in here in the heart, and there's an outside, there's a richness, we want the richness of the heart, because that man Alhamdulillah, whatever condition you put him in, he's going to be content, contentment, contentment, and being independent from people and so on, is a very high quality of people. Within people is a very high
quality Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to pray to Allah and he's to ask Allah for the right kind of richness
Allahumma inni he says, Allahu Allahu my me are all ludovica minasian and youth rini amin Fokker in Yun seanie our lives seek refuge in You from a richness that will make me exceed your limits crossed your boundaries
I seek refuge in such one please a lot Don't give me that kind of richness. And don't give me this kind of poverty as such a poverty that will make me be forgetful of you because poverty can take a person the other direction as well. Now we've got the body we've got the material body butters we've got the spiritual body now it's a game of which one we giving more food to both of my having food What are both having
are both having food you know when you take food in your body. Yep. And take food in your body, which which body is getting that one?
The material body what food does a spiritual body get?
One was sure what food is a spiritual body get
a bother and worship to find and maintain is what?
Vicar of Allah, the mind when the mind basically is connected to a loved one, whether it's in Salah whether it's in hajj, whatever it is, when the mind is connecting to Allah subhanho wa Taala the spiritual body is getting his food, especially bodies getting its food, and that's getting stronger. That is why when the month of Ramadan comes Allah gives us an opportunity
to weaken the material body.
And to strengthen the spiritual body. There's a two there's a two process. There's two things that are processing here, not one. Most people they only do one, they just don't have food, don't have drink, that's fine. All day. They're not going to do that.
But what has happened is they haven't done the second part which is to strengthen their spiritual body. There has to be two way process.
You don't have food you don't have drink.
You weaken the spirit, you weaken the material body. And the spiritual body when you give the vicar when you give during an extra till hour, I say extra don't say just allow some people you just allow, you know, Madonna added no extra tilava in Ramadan, extra liquid in Ramadan, extra things then the spiritual body is now getting stronger and stronger and getting inclined towards the next life. My brother's
this spiritual body that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created. It has different states. The mind is called a cold. Why is the mind cold in Arabic? Calm calm is something that switches turns around a lot in the whole Quran one part, he has said his heart is sinful. Allah said, His heart is sinful.
Why? What is it? Why did Allah say that Allah says in Surah Baqarah. People are making transactions. People are making transactions and they basically made an agreement. And now they're trying to go back on their words and they know what they're doing is wrong. Allah says fine, now who Montalvo His heart is sinful. His heart is sinful. Now there's a worse condition that when there's one there's a disease in the heart.
When the heart actually gets diseased, the mind actually gets diseased. What is that? Allah has said in the Holy Quran, fire Allah d. v. murghab. See when when brothers look at sisters, unlawfully, when sisters look at brothers, and
when that eye is cast unlawfully.
The reason why that is happening is why Allah has told us a lot of the real reason. The reason is not that you've basically got something within your within your mind, something within your mind that is uncontrollable or Nononono.
The reason is that there is a disease inside
Hear the disease. So if any brother, if any brother at any moment looks at a sister and they find it lustful
straightaway What does that mean? Tell me
if you look at a sister
and you couldn't turn your eyes around straightaway, because Lawson said fine knuckle oola while a cyclical Ohara
he said you the first one that the unintentional glance unintentional Look, that's fine Allah won't take you to come for that because that's me Did you just just saw you didn't know she was there? It's not that you knew you know that she's there, you know that she then you go. Oh,
we're not talking about that we're talking about you don't know. And you just had a look The first first glance, as soon as you said that one is fine. But the second one that you look, if a person looks a second time, or what some may do is that they basically look down and say what is still the first one so the first ones are the first ones and the other as it as the first one? That's not right either. Yep. One short glance, unintentional, that's done harmless. But if a person looks a second time if a person prolongs the look, what does that mean?
What's going on on the inside? On my inside? If I do that, what happened? What does it mean?
Congress? What's inside what's what's the conditioner, my heart?
It's got an illness, it's sick, is the last in our clan. So
in the beginning of the 22nd, Jews felt mala de de Muro.
Oh, women, wives of the Prophet sallallahu. Some wives, when you talk to them, don't talk to them in a low nine. Nice three to the voice. No, ring, ring, ring ring. Pick it up. Salaam Alaikum.
Yes. How can I help you?
If you use that kind of tongue tone if for a sister if she uses that, then she's probably not only talking but she might be inviting?
Yeah, she might be inviting. Allah said fala tadanobu. Cole, don't soften your voice when you're talking. So if it says if you if you ring a brother's house and says because
guess what design side, thank you for extra tofu, she's being rude.
She's not being rude. If she's acting upon this part of the Quran, she's not being rude. Because to lower the voice to soften the voice, the one who has a disease in his heart, he will yearn.
He will start thinking,
Oh, my God spoke to me so nicely on a card on what she meant.
Because God, the guy's got a diseased heart, if you're walking on the street, and if you see someone that you're not supposed to look at, if you if you see someone that you're not supposed to look at,
and you look at them, their heart is diseased, if you don't look at them on a regular basis, on a regular basis, you don't look at them, your eyes, keep on you know, soon as you see the first one use Jesus day, no, you just look away. If that is your regular, regular way, then inshallah Bismillah, you've got no disease in your heart.
That's a way to test it.
From that if a person gets more sinful
if there's more temptation to this world, there's a Sahih Hadith in Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu. wasallam has explained that every time a person is sinning, there's a black dot that is placed onto the heart,
Nikita that we looked at and so on. So that is a there's a black dot that will be spotted onto the heart. And it basically moves from a sinful heart. I'm going to show you this logo towards your towards your sort of left here. So the sinful heart and then it becomes a heart with a disease. And then if it carries on and there's more black dots and more black dots and more black dots thrown on it, then it basically turns into a heart that has become hard.
Allah said thammakaset
What does that mean? It doesn't mean if you rip the heart open, you're gonna find a solid heart inside here.
It doesn't mean that doctor doctor beats Jagmohan you know it's trying to beat you up with something. Yeah. It doesn't mean that. Well what it means is you know your mind your mind the way you think. You're not going to think your your thinking is not going to be inclined to the Acura you thinking you're very much more towards the dunya now to the lowly world world and the things around women money, you know
tangible things, material things that are very close to you and you're very attached to them. And Allah subhanaw taala says, at that point, Allah says if they carry on what happens is, they get in the heart again hold and hold, which is now it's getting old could we be up before the hardening of the heart is basically, you know, stopping the truth from coming inside.
Hole is when it's getting so hard and so difficult for the mind to see the truth and accept the truth as it is that it basically now allows it now it's basically not getting jammed up
than the one above that is sealing it. When a person sends in since so much and goes so far to the other side, Allah Subhan Allah, Allah bluebeam, Allah seal the heart, that means that they just won't see the truth. When the truth comes to them. They won't hear the truth as opposed to hear the truth. They won't listen or accept the truth when they're supposed to accept it. But if a person the same Hadith in Muslim says, When a person does a good deed, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he gets an angel to drop a white spot onto the heart.
So even if you're sinful, or you got a disease, heart, whatever it is, you can reverse it.
By doing good actions, every time you do good action, there's a white dot, white, white, white until you move from the sealed heart, to the heart to the to the one that's got basic blocks apart from the block to the heart, to the heart kind of heart, from the heart kind of heart to the heart, from the heart to the sinful heart. And from the sinful heart. You start to move away now to a heart that is in between.
and slowly slowly, when you move more and more. Your heart starts to like the Acura
and it finds peace with the Acura and a law school that no longer an Khaldoon Sally masala, call it Alvin Saleem, a heart that finds peace not full contentment yet but peace which means that you're inclined to the accurate you're probably praying you're probably doing good things and so on. So you've got peace in your heart and handler but there's something beyond that. The heart that is beyond that. You can have a peaceful heart and last Saturday we were running Melissa my son in law Have you been sorry, except one who comes to Allah with a heart that is peaceful? There's no plan and sudo to Shara. But a person that goes beyond that the best hearted person can get is Alban
the fully contented heart, the fully contained in one and Allah said the only way you will get the fully contained in Allah said, Allah busy karela he taught me in Hulu. The only way you will get a fully contented heart that is fully inclined towards Allah fully inclined towards the afterlife fully inclined towards the next slide, the only way you will get that is through my remembrance not through anything else. Anything else, every other way of trying to find contentment inside here is only temporary. So, for example, somebody tries to you know, somebody is troubled. And the way they want to get out of the troublesome situation is that they basically will start to listen to some
And please, like I said before, when a person is listening to music, person is being with the opposite gender in her own relationship, they are going to have some enjoyment, which is temporary enjoyment. The bitterness will come later on, but the outer shell is that they will basically find enjoyment and law said xuyen and Inacio Boucher demeanor and Nisa. Allah said, so I have made in this world in your minds what I made a dome to yourself to all people to all men. I made certain things that don't to them to all men. I have made a dome to them, the love of the lustful desires towards women.
They have Allah sort of put that inside you that you've got that as a test for you to see what you will do with that inside yourself. Well, Benny, next thing is love of having children, having children for yourselves and being around your children and spending time with the children. That is a love that I've given you natural love.
While cannot even
be will fit the love of holding wealth, gold, silver, money, cash, whatever I have given to you in terms of holding that. That is a love that a man has a woman has. You want to hold that for yourself.
While Haley was a woman in the old days it was fast horses in these days is fast cars
To have cars or vehicles to have transportation that will take you from one place to another place quickly, that's something that adorn a human being.
Well, an army will have to have animals to have something that you have ownership of, to have cultivation, to have land, to, to have assets, to be ownership of a to be landlord, this is something which are made lovable to yourself.
Allah says Valley Kalamata dunya, this is only the temporarily temporary, lonely life that I've given what Lahore in the horseshoe, Allah has got a better return. If you want to return to our line a better way, Allah says I've got a better way to come back to my self. Now here, my brothers think
a person will have these desires, whether it's towards any one of these things that are mentioned. And a person has got the afra. Now let me give you a scenario.
The scenario here is you're working at your workplace right now.
You're working for another company, some other man's company, who's hired you who's employed you and you're working for him. So you go to your job.
And you like your workplace?
You like it so much. You like it so much. You want to make it your home? You want to make your workplace your home? When when do
you innovate your workplace, you want to make it your home. So guys fanatic about his workplace, he wants to stay there. He wants to he loves the toilets in there, the better than toilets are home. He wants to basically and he thinks that, you know this is the place to basically be What kind of person is that?
What kind of person is that? bravas. Would you say that a person who is switched on or is basically losing the plot? Yeah, what is he doing? He losing the plot? You will agree with me? Imagine this is this world compared to the ACA is a toilet?
You know this, the people who've been to the after seeing the Acura when they look at this world, this world is Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It's dirty. It's disgusting. It's got filth, it's got oppression. It's got people that are fighting over and rivalry over, you know, trivial things. It's got desires inside here, people have hassles and jealousy, that people that have a CD looking at one of them, they do all sorts of things in this world that they don't basically shouldn't do.
When they look at the next from the next world to this world, this world is nothing absolutely nothing. So the one who's trying to make his workplace, his workplace make that his home, he's lost the plot the same way the one who looking at this world, a 16 year life compared to an eternal life is absolutely nothing. You at your workplace one day, you're going to be redundant. One day you're going to lose your job yes or no one day you're going to move on one day you're gonna be returned to finish, you can't make that you place to live the same way This world is not a place to be here forever. And the one who has got that haqiqa or got that reality in his heart and is open they will
not be attached to this world. So for example, the one who listen to music,
they listen to music, and they enjoying the music.
And they enjoying the lyrics and enjoying the songs and enjoying the beats.
They get temporary
satisfaction it takes their mind away from the troubles they don't think about the troubles are thinking about how tough how big so they might be listened to to a rap song. And the rap artist is saying yeah and the deduce to me and adapt to me and and I bust them and I got Bob banana boom boom ba da da da da da da. So basically this guy sitting here in his little you know, cushion armchair is sinking in his skinny little guy breathing Yay, my enemy gonna bomb bomb.
Bomb. Yeah. So he basically gets excited for a temporary moment he gets excited and perhaps he's in some kind of love. So he wants to express his love. So the guy says you mean arms or whatever. And he basically thinking
I wish that thing basically came to me and her us both of us together. So temporarily, he just taking his mind somewhere else. Or she's taking your mind somewhere else. When they've listened to their song or the music and when I was gone, or whatever the time has gone back and they switch it off
Back to whether nothing has changed. But now what they've done is they've actually without realizing they have now you know, the mind, the mind, the mind, the cold, whatever it has in terms of the hearing, in terms of the site, in terms of what you put inside your brain. It's now an automatic DVD player
to Uncle Satan. No uncle Satan, at least made a promise to Allah to take all of us to hellfire. He comes back into this heart after you listen to music. And now he's got a whole storage of DVDs to play.
He's got DVDs and CDs to play. So basically, when next time you're trying to do something good, or you're walking, whatever, he only has to come inside and put the CD inside your head. You don't listen to anything inside your mind. When you hear the boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, is playing in the back of your mind.
Is the people who listen to something on a regular basis. If it isn't the forehand again and again Tell me about this is not true or not that you listen to put on you listen, and you listen to it again and again. You just walk in you're praying whatever you're doing, the sound comes in hard, yes or no. Automatically will because the mind records it. It can plate
so shaytan what is done to you is he told you get away from this temporary by listen to the music. And after you've listened to it. Now he's got a few extra DVDs CDs to play. When you watch something on TV when you got temptation of what's something you're not supposed to watch. When you doing these things in your into all of this, you are only adding to the collection of DVDs that you're given to the Shakedown to play inside your head. If something wrong, I'll tell you, brother, you will never get rid of that in your life. You can always bring back a memory that that you have somewhere in your life that you did something that you were somewhere at any age, you can bring it back up.
Good memories and bad memories both you can bring it back up. What happens is our beloved Miss Frodo the Alon has said, and arena up to Nevada.
Music creates hypocrisy in the heart. What does music create brother's hypocrisy because what it does is when music is there, and you're trying to put inside the vicar of Allah, the two things don't mix
the two things don't mix
Why don't mix because one allows created to become not good like if I if I say this.
I was gonna
have noon in Europe. Me Murakami
Maliki, the the Buddha
would you listen to that right now have you barely moved.
But if I was to take all of us into a hole, where they've got a nightclub,
and the sound is Boom, boom, boom, boom.
The basic the people inside they go
with the beats with a beat share, their arms are moving mods moving to boo boo, boom, boom, boom, boom.
Now you tell me tell me why is it the case that people are doing that?
The sound has an immediate effect on the body.
Can you listen to your content? Yes or no? Come on. You listen to her and you content, your content. You listen to the music that is creating. There's some effect that takes place you put it you turn a love song on it will bring about passions inside yourself. You see put a song on about a street boys and be rough and tough on drugs and whatever it brings about a different side inside you. It automatically does that whether you intend you don't intend it will do that. It will have that effect. Even though you play classical music to 50s and 60s you will love this new classical music
because the sound is a melodious soft soft one. You play some kind of rap or some r&b or whatever it is that they have outside they're going to be different tools that why sounds have got a direct effect on to the bodies.
Kamal Josie Rahim Allah
He said a beautiful thing.
And he loves to laugh and said beautiful things and he said
that music songs in one's heart.
Only make one move away from the realm of Allah
and tilava of the Quran only make one conclusion
says if a person is listening to the tilava a person is moving more towards a law. When a person listens to music, he's moving away from a law some people that doing both the coming forward the going back looking forward to going back, and the new bit other studies that you put an Islamic song, yeah. Nasheed with music
So you might have you know, something jasola or whatever or something. I don't know what the oldies music that they're gonna go butter, butter, butter, butter, butter, butter in the background. Yeah. And they got the beats and the and then the flutes and the songs and the D instruments and everything with it.
They're mixed both.
And you see the effects I'll show you I'll tell you the effects. If you find
if you find a traditional Nasheed group, original sooner, you sit in halaqa You shouldn't be gathering. One person gets up, or one person from the crowd sings normally razzle dazzle as Mr. Hassan decided to get up.
Assam been savvy to say poetry in the love of the province of colossal sahabas would have their heads down or looking at drusillas losses or just having their heads down. And in love of the province for the last time they would have tears rolling their eyes.
Hassan we thought it would say one love of Allah, one of the other sides make an assured about Allah. Or you can imagine when they when the solar Sun was coming to Medina, the Talal bedroo Elena was the focus brothers, the focus is on the professor lesson coming to Medina.
What happens to the bodies when they listen to these these machines, where the moon she's the one who's singing is saying just for the sake of Allah, He is moved, people are moved, and he doesn't want people to look at him. He doesn't want people to turn their heads towards him. Now you've got these concert machine concerts.
When they put the music together with machines, the sisters gone.
I wonder if you married
the singing? And they basically young couraging sisters to scream to stand up to yell to move their arms about? Yeah. Why is this? Where's the sooner because you know why? Because shaytan has amazing the mix the music with it.
And once the music comes in, you're gonna find the body moving.
Yeah, it's a natural thing, music will have an effect on the body machine until I will have a different effect on the body.
And you cannot be dishonest with oneself. And now a whole cultural people are growing up with both of them that are mixed.
What I would ask you to do is if you're looking for contentment, if you're looking for contentment,
just read the Quran. As you don't find contentment.
If you don't find contentment, it means you've got a heart other than the heart that is content other than the heart that is sound and safe for the law.
You've got some something inside here which is a diseased heart. Well, you've you've got sinful heart, and you just have to carry on doing it just just kind of brother, sister just kind of doing it. Just kind of reading this hour every day. Just do to try and do the best that you can. One day when your heart starts to clear up. Yep, you will be emotionally moved.
You will find that you're going to get tingling feeling through your body. You're going to find tears rolling down from your eyes. Allah says either to me at our name to the tomb.
When the research station the Quran is recited to the meaning to believers, the man only increases Eman increases. If you find that Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah you got a good heart.
If you find sometimes you don't move, sometimes you are moved. Then you got both sometimes you moving here sometimes moving there.
You won't get always sweetness don't always ask for the sweetness, like I said earlier. But the thing is, if you always contend with the tilava see one who's content with the tilava of the Quran. They do not need music to calm them down to don't need it, because it's horrible. It's horrible. See one who has one who has made themselves content with the vicar of Allah and the afra they don't need to be lustful towards this world.
They don't need to be utterly brothers. I'm gonna say this here that you know we got certain brothers who are not married, okay, they need to get married.
The seven brothers who get married
and they're still not satisfied.
They're still not happy. They're looking for, you know, other ways or other, more numbers of, you know, as
wives to fulfill their fulfill their passions and desires. One thing I must say is that you met a question yourself, do I want to re marry my remarry again, because I've got a disease in my heart, and it's never gonna be content. Do I want to do that? Or is it because truly there is some other reason that Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah messenger will be happy with me if I do if I go ahead, because most of the brothers that want to go ahead and say most of us, I know, most of the brothers, they only doing it because this thing is not satisfied.
This thing is not Saturday, when a person's heart is satisfied. Once your fulfillment of your desires is finished, done, a person does not need to look further beyond a lot more. person doesn't need to do that. See if a person is in this world, and they've got regular temptations of money, and they hear people who made money and they yearn to have a yearning towards you. They're craving tools that and they want to make a serious amount of money quickly. If you've got that you need to question the heart. It all starts inside here. What is inside here, and you can assess yourself. You can assess yourself.
there's a there's a there's a hospital, to the hospital, take yourself to account before you really can't come to the day of judgment has the will to take your own account because every man can take his own account and is what every woman can take his own account in this world. And the temptations of this world My brother's Allah says Allah will not be behind him in alikum. Shall I tell you about something better than this? law says lacking in Medina takotsubo. Those who have made their mind always conscious of Allah. The people who have got content has their mind is always about Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, what can I do for you? Allah, what can I do for you? I love them
this for you. I love them not for you. Allah, Allah I want to I want to basically I want to try I want to get an get to you meet you.
Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't allow a person to commit suicide. So he allows the person to pretend to meet him before the actual meeting. And that is the name of Hajj. What is that the name of Hajj Allah says okay, you want to come and meet me? Because we've been praying every day our mind is with Allah. We've been fasting every year our mind visit with a law degree every day on a mind is yearning a law yearning or law yearning Allah Allah says okay, pretend to die. Take only two pieces of cloth. dress yourself like your dress you would dress yourself when you're dying and come to molds my house and say I'm here I am Here I am Here there is no one except for you. I'm here You
called me I'm here the big the big lobby. That is about hedge hedge is a fanatic state of trying to be with alarm meet Allah. Allah Hodge is not about Panasonic
has is not about you know the latest TV or the latest deal has it's not about getting the Burger King inside your body before you return the halberg
try that before I get back. I'm not gonna get another chance man
has is not about roaming around all those markets and places not how does a valid bake llama bake? I won't lie You called me um Hello ally meow alive here. I am here. Allah Where are you? I'm here. Where are you Allah I'm come here to find your law. artifact is what standing on the Day of Judgment
is a reminder starting on damages my person is is now pretending to go through the Acura cars pretending to go through the Acura that is out of that. So my brother's what I want to say is that there's a there's a year there's a spiritual comeback to the essence of what I've said there's a spiritual body. And there is a material body and is which one we feeding which one is stronger? Which one is taking me which way depends upon what I have done to my two bodies
is all done to me. And Allah has given me a test. allow him to see which one I'm going to what kind of heart I'm going to bring back to him. And there's a lot giving me time. So brothers, while my time is still there. This is moment for reflection. If the temptation of this world is here, it's only because I have put myself in this condition, whatever that temptation is. Anyway, Zappala Hyde has been very nice spending this evening with yourselves please make dua for me. I'm going to ask for all of yourselves inshallah Allah accept your efforts, and accept this Masjid Malachi, the people who come to this Masjid and like give us two feet to acknowledge
myself first and then all of us to act upon whatever has been said said, I mean a lot. Take us close to him and give us the temptations of unreal desire for the next world for the athlete for Jana, for Jana, and not to be attached to this world in a way that we forget to forget a lot.
