Chapter three, five categories of pigeons. pigeons can also be divided into categories following the five, following the five categories of needs, namely, why did obligatory men do encouraged?
Hello, yes, forbidden, slight angle back permissible. So now Now we will get to know that patience is is not all good.
There are some types of patients that are forbidden.
Every second, you know,
everything that we do in this life
falls under one of five categories falls under one of five categories, right? What are those five categories
that is obligatory and then was the heart of this preferable, more back in the middle,
and then McCool, which is the slide, and at the bottom, the worst thing is haram, which is forbidden. Now, this five prime classification is the classification of the jumbo Maliki sapphires and from Belize, but for the honeybees, they are two different categories. And, but eventually, those two different categories don't make any substantive difference, it's just a difference of interpretation more than a difference substance, but for hanafy is why did they break it into two they have fallen under the category of logic they have fallen backwards when they differentiate between the four of them
because the five is that which has been established definitively and the water has not been established definitively. So, the proofs on the ladder are not definitive as the proofs on the photo the proofs on the right are not as definitive as the proofs on the site. And then so that So, the only difference then according to the Hanafi is between the other one is that if you deny the final thoughts, this belief, if you deny, reject the word, don't accept it, that is not an act of disbelief, it would certainly be
sinful to deny with the snack of this belief, since it has not been proven definitively definitively meaning that it is proven in fact or in the Ratana hobbies or Matura hobbies. So, the transmission is definitive and also the implication understanding is definitive. So, these are the were the tentative in making this flow, they were clear explicit in making this flop.
Okay, so that is as far as water is concerned.
So that makes them have fun, well, I have my back.
And then my crew,
and then her arm. So where is the seven, they actually break her arm down into the big black handle into two
categories. They quote one category, my group
or my group
and they make the other category hierarchy. And it's the same concept as in what so that which they call haraam is that that has been definitively proven as forbidden by proofs that are definitive in their transmission out or popular hobbies that are definitive in their transmission or by and also definitive under implication, meaning they were explicit, they were clear, there is no question of interpretation. And if it is anything less than that, then the corner macro,
which will be very hard to translate.
But it is
McLuhan to the point of being to the point of prohibition, because the slave to the point of prohibition, they just wanted to avoid that word,
unless it is definitively proven, and they wanted to avoid the word for and plus it is definitively proven, but there is no practical difference except that
What I told you in terms of denial, but there is no practical difference, because according to the Hanafi is also both categories of logic, and
you will earn the sin if you don't, if you don't perform them in both categories are roughly million, and you will earn a sin if you fall in them. Or if you do that, which is my reason for that which is harder. So
understanding this is is of great importance, not only legal importance, not only
technical importance, but it isn't of great importance for your heart is what why is it because if you know that, Allah subhanaw taala has a say, you know, in each and every action that different for each and every action that you perform, has a ruling, you know, so each and every action that you perform is being evaluated by a loss of power.
This is not in you know,
just add a little bit of technicality here. We usually ask people is Kanzi haram? Is pig haram pork? And the answer is for sure, yes, but it but it is technically a wrong answer. Because khanzir pig, pork elaborated pigs, so pigs cannot be harmed because God
knows what it is consuming. It is eating pork that is harm.
So there are no rulings for things in Islam, things have not really because I like to read don't things, the rulings are only applicable to human action, human action, not a shear, because a lot of people they say, Allah is the Creator of every thing, when you can say that something is a thing is hard. But it is your action. So it is your consumption of pork that is harder. But when we know that each and every thing that we do, has what like legal value has, you know, a category is being evaluated by law that makes you very vigilant, and very watchful, because every action Not only that, even that abstention is an action to right. So impaction is also being evaluated. Because
inaction could sometimes be forbidden. So if you see like a child being beaten, and you could
and you choose to not act, that is, that is forbidden, if you if your neighbor is hungry, and you know that they're hungry, and you fail to
you know, give them some of your food, that is in action, but that is that is forbidden, if you if you see people speaking false, and you can correct them. And you can ordain that which is good. And you can forget that which is bad.
How do you choose to stay silent, that silence is a forbidden silence the point
it is not a hobby sector.
The one who stay silent and not the one who basically who silence keeps them from telling the truth is mute devil that is my hobbies has been
also has been reported as the sound fantastic, but the meaning is invalid meaning.
That is because I've lost
one something with you every time. That thing the loved ones of you that nothing they'll have demands of you could be action or inaction, sometimes a lot of demands of you inaction, sometimes he demands a new action. So if you fail to act when he asks you to act, that is forbidden. So this makes you feel that every second every breath that you take every breath for today and here. This is
important to understand that in the sight of Allah, Allah
or the way people have more Aqaba watch for people, people of Morocco, Morocco go to LA people that are watching that are
serpents have a lot of awareness of
wakefulness and awareness versus the left leg heedlessness, those people are counting their life by the breasts. So
for every breath that you take, you know that Allah subhanaw taala.
Frequently not risen to the level under William D, for every breath that you bring to existence, last, Tyler has a cover that he executes. So people of Morocco by the you know that with every dress, my, I'm being evaluated, whatever I'm doing now or not doing now is being evaluated, it will fall under one of those categories, it may be harder, maybe, to have maybe more back, maybe more crew, maybe. So it falls under one of those categories, you are your action, your inaction at all times is falling under one of those categories. And you know that you could improve by, you know, basically
modifying your lead by controlling your lead, you could make a lot of progress. Because if you're sitting down,
still not doing anything. He This is MOBA, right.
If you just sit down, and there is it's not time for prayer, and there is no word that you are failing to perform, but you're just sitting down in, in the couch, relaxing, this is no back.
People who aren't more watchful, basically, they're watching every breath they take, because we know that you know, every breath that comes out, does not go back in, that is a unit of your life that you have
to have bid farewell to forever, it's not coming back, it's not returning. So people who are like with us, they will, they will do something that will get them a hand,
they will make something figure, you know, I'm sitting here
in my living room not doing anything, or I'm driving to my car, or let me do some victo I'm driving my car. So this time is not wasted. They try as much as we can to not waste time in mobile. And they tried to see if I can make any, Can I do anything about this mobile app to improve it? So I am, you know, having fun with my kids? Can I make a good intention? You know, Can Can I intend to that this is for the sake of Allah. And people will not reach this level until they recognize the greatness of money or to lock or unlock companionship in their own lives in this mind. So they're always the heart is always in the mind, in the presence of of love, in love. In
the heart is always in the heart of Motorola, we're in the presence of a loss of power. Then, if she's cooking at home, you know,
she is cooking, she is mindful of our blog, she is in remembrance of Allah.
That would make you know, her travel by heart, while her body his or her body is engaged in something else that is very inconsequential in terms of,
you know, reward, she could also add to this cooking honey. So that the carry cooking, which is like an act of the body would count and her scale of good deeds, you know, she she could you know, intend to be a beautiful mother and housewife for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and renew this knee every once in a while so that things do not become
basically your routine, mundane routine without any year to renew this new year. And when you're a new this new year to have a great impact on every actor that you do. Your the very cooking that you do. If everything is for our Lord, there will be certain everything there will be excellence in everything that you do.
this this awareness that we are always being evaluated will always make us vigilance vigilant will always make it make us watchful and kept calculating we calculate
To make sure that we are not wasting time, we make sure that we don't do anything inferior, when we could be doing something that is our superior and we make sure that we're back in our place is has very little room, you know, we narrow down the room of the bathroom or life as much as we can we're back is not permissible. You know, but do you think the prophet SAW someone, you know, had a lot more time in his life, he was doing a lot more bad things.
Absolutely not, you know, everything was being was being
intended for last month, even the sleep, you know, and I put miles on the debit chat to each other when they were in Yemen about their night prayers. And
Marvin told me that I sleep first, and then I wake up to pray, so that I may count my sleep, and wakefulness both for the sake of Allah, because I'm sleeping now to wake up a little bit later so that I could sleep, pray the second half of the night. So I'm counting my sleep.
And so myself, I'm you know, asleep. But it, you know, it has been counted in my scale of goodies, because I had intended to sleep currently so that I could wake up in the middle of the night and pray. And if my iPad Ninja, who was basically a teenager, a teenage student of the Prophet at the time, he was sent to a DM and was able to do this, imagine what the prophet SAW
so be be very, be sure that you're being evaluated, that with every breath coming out, going in or coming out, you're being evaluated, and make sure that what your evaluation will be a good one
obligatory patients, one two
patients and abstaining from home things and actions, number two patients and carrying out problems or needs number three patients and facing adversity which is beyond one's control, such as illness, poverty, etc. So the patients in the business, not Vittoria patients, basically obligatory patient is the patient yourself in doing that, which is where the patient yourself in persistence, consistency with that can take a lot of patience to be done, you know certain words about such as your credit, for instance, and things that have a little bit of weight or burden on the regular folk.
They require some patience to be consistent with the be consistent with doing those What about that requires some patience, and then patience in abstaining from
sufferance, which is patient, strong, or abstaining from the things that are haram and that takes a great deal of self restraint. That's why we said slavery is not only patience, but slavery is is patience, endurance and self restraint and to some extent, forbearance. So, that is another type of wage of patients and the third type is why the patient that is why do
you know, hardship, you know, in times of hardship, which patients is added in times of hardship,
because patience is different levels. Patience is different levels, the patient that will keep you from how long the patients that so you're not Allah, Allah is merciful, and Allah knows our weakness. So the patience that you need to show in times of hardship is not the level of patience that you have shown that is not that will not be required that will not be worth it. But it is the level of patience that will keep you from Parra it will keep you from slapping your cheeks, you know, like some
of our sisters do back home. You don't see much of this here to keep you from you know,
speaking, something that is displeasing to Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said well,
and we say not accepted those which please our Lord, when I brought him by. So that is that were the patients
Upon the occurrence of hardship, but there are Givens Yeah, you know, there is there is this word to patients and then there is the beautiful patients and then there is the non suffering which has to do with redness or acceptance or showing pleasure had the decree of Allah regardless of the decree, whether it is painful or not
encourage patience and do number one patience and abstaining from this like little things. Number two patience and performing acts of worship, which are liked and encouraged.
Number three patience in retreating from taking revenge. So, patients patient stuff as much patience as what
it is to be patient with, in doing something that is meant to be patient in doing something that is macro or to be patient and
leaving out something that is worth leaving out something that is worth, it is persistence in leaving out
some people may think that
it's working patients
in our patients.
We will talk to this we'll explain it a little bit later. But, you know, to be patient from Allah, there is some some darkness that displays patience. Now there is patience in Allah for Allah with a lot of vendors patients from
or patients and being away from a loss.
And that is a form of disgrace patients that we will cover shortly, is
Number one, patience and abstaining from food and drink until death. Number two patients and abstaining from eating halloumi, carrion and blood. One alternative is death from starvation.
Both even Hamlet whoever has no choice with the care and how long the meat and blood are fused, dies as a consequence.
Number three patience in refraining from making so he is currently about to be patient and refraining from harm until you die
is harder to be patient and refraining from food until you lie, you know you're restrained from food until you die. That is for sure. By agreement. If you have to, can you you starve yourself to death.
But what if you have harmed food, then this kind of disagreement over
whether it would be whether they want you to consume the food or it is not worthy to consume food.
And some of the scholars said it is not magic to consume the food. And some of the scholars said it is where they have to consume the home food if you know that he will die if you don't. So if there is for for wine, and you're stuck in the middle of the desert, and there is only important wine to consume, otherwise you die some discoloration as well I don't want you to eat some scholars Android is not waiting on you to eat or drink not which is turned on. Now, the next thing which is related to this is whether it is wiser for you to beg for food, if you will otherwise die for not concern of a scholar is set up as some of us commerce that it is not
the names of the scholars doesn't really matter that much is like for instance, it is if it is hot on food, then it is watch upon you to eat from it. But then other reports came out that said something that would indicate otherwise, that you could be patient until you die and not eat harmful. But the same applies to begging, begging.
Like what, like if, if you here starving, and the only way that you can get team food is through begging. Would it be worth it for you to beg for an autonomous car? He said yes. And some of the scholars said no.
The point that we're trying to make here is is that like when we discuss something like this, even if we say you should be here
You should beg for food if you're gonna lie, otherwise you would be causing the demise of your body and others not. Even if we say you should take for food, what the discussion itself in Ferris that begging is extremely disliked and
begging is extremely dislike, it is extremely unpatriotic ever Muslim, the big to the point that some of the scholars said, patient yourself until you die and
he was asked, if he does not pick, he will die. And he can reply was hello and not let him die
from alive, he should, you know, basically integrity and honor for the sake of of love and refuse to beg them Hello?
When the hunger strikes until you die, that would not be permissible. I don't believe that this would be permissible hunger strikes as a show off
the science or as a plea to the outside world to come to the rescue may be permissible, but not until you
if if you know that if you know that your diet and you need to eat. But if you if you know that you will not die, then you could he could do the hunger strike for the purpose of you know, pleading to the outside world
to come to your rescue or showing defiance.
one of the companions of the Prophet
No, I'm just not around for them to pick up it is very dislike for for capable people. Today, it is very dislike, it does not harm.
Yeah. And for those people that are extremely poor, and they're begging for it, you know, if they're begging for the minimum sustenance, that would keep them from death and major harm, some discomfort. So that is why today
it's wiser to beg for the minimum such sustenance that could keep you from death can major harm to your organs. But
Now there's this very dislike.
Yeah, because that is certainly different from stealing. There is this dragon, do you have the choice to give them or not to give them? So I have this very interesting life?
Remember three patients and refraining from big. There's this view as to what they're making from people's forbidden or from us who
said that this kind of patients and opsonization is abstention is he was asked what if the person fears that if he does not do that he will die? No, I haven't answered No, he will not die alone will send him
his new provision. It is no
one knows the need of a person and his sincerity and abstaining from making a level sending his other scholars including some companions. And remember Chef Lee said it is obligatory on such a person to bake. And if you did not bake he will be a wrongdoer. Because by baking he protects himself from death.
Number four patients enduring things that may lead to death such as creditors sneaks for fire in the morning. Number five patience at times of fitness when Muslims are failing, patience and abstaining complaining at such a time when Muslims killing Muslims.
Indeed, it is nice to have like and prefer when the prophets of Allah Allah him send them under this category. He will tell you two things that patients in you know in the time of
fighting if the non Muslims are
Attacking the Muslim land, that to be patient and not fight back is harm according to all the scholars, but it is Muslims against each other fighting one another, then patients here would be able to have the patience in accepting
instead of fighting instead of defending yourself, because the profits or the loss of themselves will
be like the better one of the two sons of Evan which is the better one of the two sons of Adam, the one who was killed not the one who killed him. So, that is the battle one of the two sons of Adam is not the only one who is me Wiseman, I want you to carry my is my sin and yours and he did not do anything he just left.
And either you know, tried back to the province or sometimes when there is a fitna between the Muslims be like the better of the two sons of Kagame
and in some reports that we have here with men, letting him carry his sin and yours and in some reports, when Baraka housewives safety, and if the the brightness of the story.
if you can tolerate the brightness of the sword, cover your eyes, cover your eyes and don't fight back. That is when there is fitna between this is not basically like
a Muslim highway man that that comes in attacks you this is the time of thinking that when two good branches groups of Muslims are fighting one another over something over here basically
purposeless purposeless, purposeless fight between two groups of Muslims but if you have a chance aggressor group
that is, you know,
basically clearly transgressive if you have a highway man, you defend yourself because
you know what, there's not like evil to be left alone.
You know, straight up so you defend yourself and the profits are not going to matter. The torso II don't matter don't
matter enough CFO. Whoever dies in defending this property is honor, his life is a Shaheed.
But the show patience in, in
dying, versus defending yourself with the only praise worthy of this fight was a fight between, such as the fight that happened was being blamed
for the fight that happened between LA and the civilian. If you if,
if you weren't one of these two camps, and someone approached you
in the battlefield, can you just
basically refuse to defend yourself refuse to fight back to them that is praiseworthy, in a kind of you know, kind of fighting like this one.
Because if, if we as Muslims refuse to fight back, and if we as Muslims live up to the these teachings that entire fitna, keep in mind we're not talking about you know, the clear wrongdoers, we're not talking about giving into highwayman. We're talking about the time of fitna like Ali and surveyed and Taha when the fighting erupted between them
over the killers of us, man.
This is a time where every so many of us refused to fight back that thick non stop
and keep in mind that they did stop
because many refused to fight. So, yes, there was a war but this was not like a 30 year war. So the war erupted.
By the doing of the, you know,
people the people that were
Under the spread,
that war erupted. And then it was contained afterwards. Yes, it was the thing that offers via function where it came. But it was good thing too, because Muslims refused to carry on was, was the fight and
if we don't refuse to carry on with the fight, then the world would be perpetual will continue. Okay. But once we refuse to let the fitness stops by itself,
because the two parties are good doers, they're their core, they are keynote Muslims, and it is not like one party is
proper for highwayman. No, it is good to good parties. So if they both restrain themselves and abstain for the second hour,
he told me
problem probably don't
capital, every life In fact,
this is basically when it is clear for you that one of the two parties is clear on door. That is not the type of fitness fitness when things are unclear to you. That is a time of fitness. When it is clear to you that one party is the wrongdoer, then you fight that party that is doing wrong.
Thank you for asking this question. Because I lost her capacitor that he taught me how to fit
inside the wrong door, the transgressor group content, they
feel they go back to the command about last time for the return to the commander or last time. That word the fitna itself means this means that things are unclear to you, or at least they're not very clear to you. But once things become very clear to you, then it is not fitna for you. And what is happening is not a matter of judgment. But
then we should also as Muslims, we should also follow our
more learned and more informed
you know, Muslims and our leaders that that could work out things for us, because for the public, sometimes they could get easily confused or they could get they could feel that something is clear when it is unclear or vice versa. So we should also consult those that we trust in times of fitness, the scholars that we trust in other kinds of fitness, if things continue to be equivocal, and clear to you then stay out from the fitness if things have become clear to you, clear to you and more important about fighting against Muslims. So the level of clarity has to be very up there. Things are so clear to you that this party is vodun in this party is Muslim. So things once once things
become so clear to you that it is okay to fight with some of you against the vodka.
No, these are
these are things where people need to abstain from to stay away from
whatever is happening in our Muslim countries with us. That would be like a very lengthy discussion. And I don't know if you have time for this and then if you have stamina for a discussion like this,
you know, the
change really for
the Muslim community.
Muslim countries to work for children to work for reform is obligatory on all of us. We're having a little bit of difficulty figuring out how we bring about change from the most pacifist equal to the,
to the basically, most hasty people, we have,
you know, levels of
like multitudes of
calculations. So, some people have
multitudes of programs, multitudes of projects for two years, some are all the way or the passenger side, some are overweight on the hasty side. And there's like, love
projects in the middle between the two.
I would say,
unless there is public uprising, that is the nation rose against the nation is rising against rulers, it is public uprising, then individuals and groups may not lead
may not basically the uprising, against the rulers, unless this is a popular national public uprising, the whole people are fed up. And we're talking about not talking about 100% of the people, but the nation is, is has moved to change the ruler has proven to be an extremely corrupted extremely harmful to the future of the nation. So unless there is a like a national public uprising, or
handle on the occupant, the people in charge, and people in authority, they agree, agreed here does not mean 100% what we're talking about a sizable majority agree to remove the rollers, then we are no individual or group should take it upon themselves to remove
a ruler or a ruling party,
you know, by themselves to do things that people have asked
for is that the nation that they
you know, the public in general. So what if we don't have one of the two that may be patient until the last minute changes our conditions? And what do we do And meanwhile, you do Dharma teaching, you know, raising the awareness of people trying to rectify and reform ourselves and those around us until last Carla
looks down at us with eyes mercy and changes our condition.
Now, because otherwise, you know, infighting and internal strife within the Muslim communities
is evil. And the blood of the Muslim is extremely sacred practice was not observed
in de melanosome the dominant
one would continue to be in the ease and is the basically is is in the easel is Dean in the comfort of his Dean until he spills sacred blood down on her arm. Once he does this is Dean would be tightened on him meaning that his relationship with his Dean will be compromised word
please will be tightened on Him He will not be
in the comfort ease.
His relationship with Allah will not be defined by ease and comfort his relationship with a lot when they will be very
unstable very tight. very tense.
This like patients group, neuron patients and abstaining from physical appetites, food, drink sex to the extent of causing damage to oneself. Number two patience and doing a good deed.
Yeah, patiently, permissible patience is basically when something is.
back. Yeah, you patient yourself from it. Most of the time, if you do this, you're going to be doing a tractor Plus, if you're doing it for the purpose of losing weight, you're abstaining from my bathroom. For the purpose of losing weight. This is this is more about patients, right? Well vaccinations by dieting, is Mubarak patients abstaining from this mobile food to lose weight. If you, if you do a little bit of fine tuning of your inner ear, you can easily move them over to Mr. Hart. So I'm dieting to lose weight so that I can have
you know, better endurance in Salah so that I could work
you know, better or
to surprise my family, you know, so I'm trying to find, and sometimes it is hard for people that are not aware of the companionship of Alaska for Ireland, to basically modify their intention. It's not like a switch. And it's like, it's not like, pretentious.
It's not like you're gonna pretend I'm doing this for the sake of
it has to be real. intention has to be real. So when people trained themselves to be doing things always with a law
in mind, they're everything they're doing Pilates in mind, those people will it will be easy for them to modify their knee a little bit. So that every
every McGrath patients, you're having patience in abstaining from this food, but I'm doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. For I'm doing it for multiple purposes, including, which is which is kind of in this way. So I'm dieting
so that I could lose weight, so that, you know, I could feel better, so that I could play better train longer.
So, a combination of intentions, you will get rewarded for the good intentions that you have. Because here it is like
boom, there is no harm if you seek from the bounties of your board, this was an address to the heartbeat, if you are in hacked, and you want to do a little bit of, you know, business, that is fine. As long as you came for me, if you came for the business, that's a different story. But if you came for me, that is trying to do another business as well, and make some profit on your way you're going to have to come and back or is there, that would be all fine. So combining the concerns, when they do not conflict with each other is absolutely fine.
But combining the intentions when they conflict with each other, you know, so I am praying for Allah. And for people to see my prayer laws are conflicting, doesn't work this way. But I'm going to have to kind of really want to give a heart and that is my intention. And when they give their sin, the stuff that I have, or I will drive people to have and take you know
fees from them for the trip and then make half to myself and on our way there I'll be driving and get some compensation. That's that's fine, because these lately yet do not conflict with one another. But for most of the time, the MOBA can be changed can be improved to could really work because
in the data
so changing the year is the business Automat engaging with a loss of power because they know that this is what gets you ahead much faster your body has limitations and can travel at you know certain a certain speed. There's so much non night prayers that you could do or a piano loaded that you could do. There is so much parameter inside your body is limited
The heart can travel pack
many times the speed the speed of the body can travel. So, you let the heart travel to Allah subhanaw taala and the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala by the change of need, and that requires that we
another this is extremely important, because most of the people are only
mindful of their actions, their you know, their external or exterior actions, the people that are mindful of their interior actions, they are the ones who get to make it to
more tolerable to be the ones drawn closer, the ones that were drawn closer by law
keep in mind
macabre boon is not a boon it is not the ones that are near to Allah
comes in the passive voice right? passive voice
right, it is yeah, it is
not, it is passive voice
not active voice. So, it is not your doing, it is basically the multicloud read
the you know, so that you have the homily I mean, it's probably I mean, are the Muslims or the people that you know, are
you have traumas How can you mean people that want to
to get closer to have lots of fun.
And the Excel, the Excel, the Excel, exterior, the anterior me however Excel and interior, we will get them faster, we'll get them closer faster, we're getting closer. So they are
actively become more common, which is
the passive voice meaning that Allah invited them to get to become closer, Allah brought them closer, they are
That isn't the active voice. That is what you could do. And the Takara that is for you, the seek to come closer, but you can't really control the outcome, you could see to come closer, and then
you may be chosen to to become career to become close, that is
the one who has been
brought closer by a loss. It's like more or less on modulus. modulus isn't the active voice, the one who is sincere, what was the one who was chosen to be pure and completely devoted to a loss of productivity.
So you could say more or less
about a lot of people
talk about usage, for instance modules, because this is the one that has been chosen by a lot to become purified and to become completely devoted to a loss of
loss, he is one of our servants that are much more seen that we chose to be devoted to us. So
it is important to that after we have done all of these and often if not all of these things that we watch our hearts because we want to our intentions and we watch the internal you know crevices of our hearts because there many problems could be
you know, hiding and could be ruining our I bet that for you prayers may be ruined by the many problems that we have in the internal crevices of our heart. A little bit of arrogance manifests every once in a while. You have some
you know that manifests every once in a while. You have some kid or
some art you
can see which is basically being too proud of yourself or too happy with yourself.
These things are
grave grave consequences, the outcome is really bad.
being patient with the actions of the heart is much harder than the patient with the actions of the above. But this is the work of that being that will become one day
the word work, those who seek to become close.
And those who will be chosen later, to become close to Allah subhanaw taala, to be very watchful of your heart, if you look down at someone, then you need to punish yourself, if you need to be hard with yourself. And we all have these, if you find that that one point he wanted to show off, then you need to be the don't just go you know over look these things because they are extremely harmful to you.
It is, it is a lot of work. But unless we pay attention, unless we have some degree of determination, resolve to really work on our interior, we will continue to do what we're doing.
Work on the interior mask of water purifier and make the exterior x your means
of junk, those are those those are the easier ones because they are in your control. It is in your control to stand up, walk to the bathroom, many people do come out to rock house, can you do this, you can do this. This is your means to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And to having a lamp you purify your interior, having a lot of help to purify your interior will require a lot
of watchfulness, a lot of vigilance, but also to not be easier with yourself. So if you're if you're alive once, then hold yourself to account. If you
do any of these things that we talked about, you hold yourself to account. And if you're not able to get closer and and you're not finding the sweetness of a man in your heart, and all that you can do is basically the fasting and the prayer. But your heart is some of distance, your heart is not flying to the sweetness comfort in, in the worship of a law or at the companionship of a loss of product.
And you have been trying for some time, then it is about time that you consider something a little more erratic, something a bit more,
impactful, you know, because you have been doing it for many years. And you you're not getting closer, you're not feeling better, you're not feeling sweeter. So
maybe you need to change where you live. Maybe you need to change something big about your life.
Maybe there is something that you sometimes we
could be making.
Or we could be making coffee or tea
or coffee, off your ties with your kin, kinship, that sometimes we could be making a claim or a quote of somebody else. Most important thing to think about today. you straighten out parents and we come to terms with it.
It becomes naturalized normalized. And then you keep looking for things you know, I can't find it. Where is it? I can't, I can't feed better. I can't feed sweeter. You know my face. I don't have the sweetness of faith. Because it because you have normalized naturalized normal life. A big,
big piano disaster that is keeping you away from above. So when when it is not happening, where people are working and doing things with my heart feeds,
then I must do something about it must continuously continue to work hard. Don't give up your hard work because you never get closer.
Plus, you never get closer to a lot of fasting
you know you have reached the point where you're overdoing it. that's causing you
Yeah, you know, fatigue, spiritual fatigue, if you're if it is causing him spiritual fatigue, then you may need to cut back
and try to look for the reason why you can't get closer. Or the reason why you seem to have reached your ceiling.
Some people find this,
like they seem to have reached the ceiling, I have been the same for the last 10 years, I'm not getting closer, and I've reached my CA, usually when you reach the ceiling,
you are forgiving something negative, something bad, or looking at it, and you need to go back and correct it. So you need to review
your D, capital verragio the next
few years, you revise your the make like an inventory of your actions and
outward and inward exterior and interior actions. And then you will have to make some radical changes. Because what apparently what you have been doing steadily, is still not giving you clues, you're still feeling somewhat distant, you're not feeling the sweetness of faith
that you that you read about in the books,
and so on and so forth.
I said don't cut back on your better unless they're causing you fatigue Isn't that like how many of you are searching
for the hearts when they become fatigue, it become blind. So if you're if you're if you're fatigued, spiritually, basically you cut back on this certain things that are causing you fatigue, sometimes there is also
misplacement of spiritual energy, misplacement of spiritual errors, like some people please some of their spiritual energy in one I bet.
Usually I give this example sometimes, like a sister that is wearing the cloud, for instance. So instead of covering her face,
that it constitutes like a struggle for her that is a huge struggle, which is she's finding difficulty on daily basis.
If she feels that this struggle
makes her better, makes her closer to Allah, then she learned that
she should keep going.
If it is getting her closer,
whether that's through his cousin is depleting her spiritual energy, in the sense that
she becomes really this is it this as much as I could do. And also she does the bare minimum on everything else. Because I am fighting with this particular good thing that I'm doing, which is she believes it's larger, and she will have to keep it for sure. She believes it's Mr. Hogg which is the position of the majority, then in this case, she may she may look into it.
Yeah, if if I if this is basically a misplacement of my spiritual energy, like it is consuming so much of my spiritual energy that I'm depleted in otherwise, and I'm not able to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala near to Allah, then I may give this up.
If it were, if it would be able to
you basically reallocate that much spiritual energy, that's where you were investing in this one act, Tinder, maybe like 200 other acts, that would get you closer to Allah.
The same applies to people.
You know, that do, you know ombre, ombre or prospective backward. They excel in one particular area, and they spend most of their spiritual energy in that one particular area. You're sure for instance, you're
helping out people that the minister has spent the last time in the massive you're doing a lot of work for the message or for the organization. People are not looking out, you feel fatigued spiritually. Now, we're not talking about fatigue physically, because if you're fatigued physically, but you are your spiritual
Spirituality is healthy and strong. And that is not a problem, that's never a problem to be fatigued physically, problems are sort of used to stand up and that the soles of his feet crack. So the physical fatigue is not a problem. But once you feel spiritually fatigue, you feel better invoke my convenient President of the Board of business, it is actually eating up my spiritual energy, and being resentful otherwise, I'm, you know, not doing as much as I ask yourself, Am I doing this for the sake of Allah, if I am, then it would have brought me closer to Allah would have brought me closer
to his students.
If you do not find sweetness, for the action that you do, then
look into it, look into that action, you know,
what you're doing, because if it is not pure, had it been? Okay, a lot of would have
shown gratitude to you for this action.
Grateful, Obama's most faithful means that when you persist in doing one thing for the sake of Allah, the compensation will be that sweetness, you will find sweetness and
you will find pleasure if
you know, you try nightriders and then you persist, and
then you find pleasure and
sweetness, comfort, they become the coolness of your eyes. But if you don't find this work of material, and working for a leaf organization, working for the master member of this board,
then it may be misplaced spiritual energy, you may be your intentions may be somewhat impure, or this action may be taking too much of your spiritual energy that you need to cut back so that you could enjoy doing other things.
Because the balanced worshipper is the one that gets lost. Don't put all of your stuff in one basket.
if you're the president of the MA talking about any particular
just talking about someone who has been taking care of the masses, you know, the president of the board or something, and that that takes 90% of their supererogatory better or worse 90% is there, you're putting all of your eggs in one basket, what if this work is not pure
waste of your life? What if it is not.
And then I would be saying that this pure inside is not pure. And we said after science, a lot of children attitude to you by making, you know, you feel the sweetness and the comfort in your heart for the worse it is not a cure. So you want to diversify your portfolio very bad. You want to be like
asked him to water fasting. He said either who fed like hungry person or what you said it will follow the janazah
who listen to the sick person and what you said I did in all of this, you know in one morning,
ready done all of this. So that is basically telling you what
he is with a loss of
every he's not. He's not limited to one form of worship, where do you find comfort. His comfort is in the pleasure of
not in going Tamura every couple of months, not in fasting Monday and Thursday. Not in doing relief work for you know for relief organization. To visit to give avoided if all of these are beautiful, beautiful acts. But when all of your spiritual energies and
invested in monitor, and you're lacking on the rest, you want to ask yourself, Am I in this? For
the pleasure of? Well, unless pleasure is here to here to year to year two, why is it alright? having limited to this one
gonna ask myself is Justin become
part of my routine, the transcript for my liking my fasting because it's helping me lose weight become popularity
Am I seeking comfort and fasting as an M? Naka means to the pleasure of Allah, all of this could be true, some people do go to
the comfort in ombre, but then they are so limited
they don't have much energy for anything else. And it is fine to excel in one area more than others.
It's not like, you know, I'm just doing the bare minimum on everything in my area of interest and all my spiritual energy.
Because in this case, it may be true that this particular act of worship became a hint for you, not me. And all of them should be needs, the pleasure of Allah. But if it was just a means to the pleasure of Allah did, you would have also taken a share of this, that this
dude have come to a loss
of so many doors from so many paths. But if this is just a path that you're stuck to, it is time to ask yourself
what is happening here.
people that want to get closer, they don't have much time to waste. You really, you're eager to get closer, you're eager to get in here. So you see in your truck from all doors.
one of us
experienced the hardship
it's very easy.
if you're walking too fast every other day and it has become a habit and you like it, make sure that you refine your intention, just revive your intention and see if if that is helping you excel and do better in other areas for not
in one end of the day.
There is no carrier for one who sprayer is not forbidding him.
And Monica, from you know, lewdness and evil. So if the prayer is not gonna, you know,
bring them out to eat, then that tree is a is an inverted tree, you want to ask yourself, why the tree is not bringing out fruit, why it's not coming to fruition.
So if the fasting every day has enabled you empower you to succeed and excel and other areas, then great, it's good, it's giving you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. But if it is not, or if it is making, like I said, this allocation of spiritual energy that I'm talking about
you know, it's it's an important concept that you that you that you're sure that you're doing things for our law, therefore means not ends handle that you're distributing your spiritual energy between the pleasures of our last tada in a balanced way, so that you could progress faster and so that you're not putting all of your baskets,
all of your eggs in one basket. But if this fast thing has really become a second nature for you, and we do see those people that trust every other day professed every Monday and Thursday. They are very cool.
The first Monday and Thursday. It was very arrogant because every Monday and Thursday
basically do not refrain from from from eating
They don't refrain from backbiting and gossiping, their time is just dirty over time with stuff. So in this case, fasting has become second nature, yes, it became quite easy for you to fast and sparkly are second nature, but it is not working.
It is not giving you closer. So there are science but it is giving you closer, I'm not giving you
No, it is essentially that is why when I started, I said don't cut down on your bed now thinking that you will get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Or that you need to cut down on your outside exterior evaton. So that you will work could be lighter in the travel, because the fatigue of the body is different from the fatigue of the heart. And your body could be fatigue, but your heart is still healthy. But when you feel that the fatigue of the body affected your heart and fatigue to your heart, that it is time to revise what you're doing, and calm down. Because when the hearts becoming fatigued to become blind, as Ali said, Now dropping down does not mean that you will pick
out Florida where did that you're doing. But in this case, in this case,
it is to look into what you do it why is it Why hasn't?
Why hasn't popped up to you? Certainly, I will not come and tell you don't ask or don't do this or don't do that. But you tell yourself, Why has it not helped me
enter your five year extension and you just keep
working. But if you're doing a certain segment of it, and it is causing you depletion or it's causing you to have clean energy, spiritually,
you're not able maybe to cut down on this and replace it with something else.
Maybe you want to cut down on this particular sermon or that's not getting you closer and replaced with something else.
Maybe that thing that you were doing was not actually the pure,
maybe closer from another class another door, he gets through another door, you get closer
because after a while, you know you're moving on right every two months.
Maybe you start to that is a different person. And after that
it just became like hot that you're maintaining or even you're you're afraid that people will say well, he's not making anymore like he used to. And that's you basically.
So from there
there could be a lot of problems that's around us. So, unless we have like constant
frequent revision of where we are, how close we are in our travel to Alaska, North Florida.
We may be wasting
like very precious time.
Are you self
worth reduces arrogance
and arrogance it is ignorance. It is basically your ignorance of yourself and your ignorance of a lot would make you arrogant.
arrogance is a quality that people have
certain behavior when
feeding into that quality and certain qualities other qualities will feed into that quality or self concede when produce
which is arrogance, art. Work with escaped rule which is self deceit
will produce arrogance as a result, because more is one has to see. So, he deceives himself
and the one who has pride for self conceit is
too pleased with himself
to face to themselves, both will eventually need the targets. So,
whether or not having recognition of above and popular enough sick and your value value
gloriousness the greatness of Allah and your pure weakness and your
smallness, as a human being or resulting in areas and arrogance leads to for sure leads to Rhea ostentation showing off. Because arrogant people are people that think of themselves better than than they are. And people that want to be looked at want to be perceived as greater than they are. And undoubtedly their arrogance would lead them to
show off so that they earn more respect from the people and more about their it celebrity
to feed into the further feed into their arrogance, and then they get into this vicious cycle, you know, so that you have
self deceit, which is more or more self deceit, that comes from ignorance, jack, jack will lead them to deceive themselves. And because they are deceiving themselves, they will have entrepreneurs self can see.
And they will be too pleased with themselves because they are
delusional. They are delusional about who they actually are. They only look at their strength their hands to their pride, smartness that it isn't that
pets will be over evaluate, overestimate their value, then show you that they will have art an article will lead to chaos, which is arrogance. And kid needs to react and react, feeds back into the circuit. This vicious circle
circle of egotism is a vicious circle and you keep going back. So you, you show off. And then when you show off, you become more arrogant and you show off more.
How you could trace the arrogance. Three years, okay, you treat the arrogance bar. As the prophet SAW someone said everything takes practice in the middle of a
handle. So you want to auto humbleness you want the opposite of arrogance is the lotto and humbleness How do you earn humbleness by practice of humbleness. It is basically if you find that if you find that that you're always that you spend too much time in front of the mirror for instance, spend less time Don't worry that much about your appearance. Because it's
so it is not bad to look beautiful because I was beautiful and he likes beauty. It's not bad. But if you find that you're being a little bit too obsessive about it, then you come back a little bit. Can you try to show more humility
if you find that driving fancy cars causes it to you downgrade.
find that you're always
seeking the company of the wealthy and powerful and then you should spend more time
in company with
sector Misaki and so on spend more time and practice humbleness. Like you practice forbearance you say to yourself
I will control my anger to remain German. And he said himself, I will humble myself more, humble myself more. And then you basically revise everything that you do, the way you act, the way you walk, the way you look at people, the way you stand up and see where, where, where's your arrogance, manifesting, and suppress it, suppress it, suppress it, suppress it. In the beginning, this will be
Your suppression of arrogance will be somewhat fake in the beginning and it's fine.
You will fake humbleness, that is fine. As long as you're not seeking the fake humbleness, you're seeking true humbleness, but on your way there, you will fake it. You will fake forbearance. Someone who's really short fuse will come one day. And then someone you know, you get into an altercation with one of your brothers, that you used to argue with a lot. And then all of a sudden, you'd say I'm working now on this anger issue? And then you will say no,
I'm not gonna answer.
It will be fake, it will not be genuine.
People even recognize what's happening with him. No, he's different. But that is fine to fake it until you reach it because the Prophet said in order to handle forbearance becoming forbearing is to practice or forbearance
and this the hangman takes a little bit of
when I find that I'm shaking like the
exterior effort external effort
is like faking you like it for bearing one until you become your act like number one entity.
Okay, so if you said in the master though the profits or loss
tell us about this another day of law firms, Kevin marmorata. And
whoever sits in the massive after hour after the pleasure of prayer and the sun rises. In the men's mentioning the law he has been mentioning a lot to him to summarize it sunrises he wouldn't have the more the captain on piano have any more attractive.
Apparently, there is a word for every deed. every deed has its own reward.
But death is never rewarded or has not been multiplied.
Because Captain ombre has a reward.
And that reward could be multiplied with the multiplication of cotton ombre depends on so many things. The purity of your attention in terms of the excellence of your very best they're the amount of work and effort
that you put into it so that you weren't gets multiply. So there is a reward for
it when you go to have to nominate actually work keeps on getting multiplied. When you sit in the master after the Salah. Do you sit in the muscle after the Salah he will get the reward of the heart and ombre before it's multiplication.
A lot of people sit in the chat and there if
there is there is like a card
which says in particular the valid
legal Maxim that says
the majority takes the same ruling as
the entirety the majority of a thing is the same ruling as the entirety of that same
maturity. So meaning what if you spent the majority of time in thick and you chat with a little bit with the
Friends, then he will get the reward of the hat.
Because a lot of the majority takes the ruling of the entirety of the thing. So you will get the reward
if you spend most of the time chatting in the little time mentioning
that you will not get rewarded
because they were this for people that
sits down to mention, a lot of
those are the ones that are deserving of the award. And a lot because of his generosity for the people who spend most of the time doing this. Allah would also give them the reward, since
it is the best form of Vic kalpitiya music, you know, next only to the prayer
is the best form of Vic mixed only to the prayer. Because in the prayer, you know, you're you're reciting the program inside the prayer also. So next, the best the best form of thick is the prayer. Next to it is karate.
This is an act of remembrance, where you're repeating the word of himself. So
certainly a form of that.
