Prior saw by remember
last time we just
covered all the way up to page 71.
PAGE 21. And we're starting from the divisions of people in regards to the actions of the lens
divisions of the people in regards to the external actions or actions of exterior options of buildings. And he divided the people around, not really.
Most of the time, I'll be reading verbatim from Melvin Pike's writings here, where the translation of his writings, because it is a benefit to read verbatim, because
no matter how much I tried to
elaborate on what he said, My collaboration will not be nearly as important as his own words.
But the city divisions
talked about in terms of the passions in terms of dividing people up with regard to their actions, the stuff that there are those people whose limbs are engaged in the service of their board. So their limbs are performing the function they were created for their limbs, that alone was the case, in the service of their Lord. Now, the second type are the people love
that people have country. So he divided the people into the people of the NPM
are the people of wakefulness alertness, the people who are doing what they need to be doing, the people who are performing the deeds they were demanded to perform. And then you have the people that fear the treachery are people who are using the body of life created for them for the wrong purpose. They're using it.
They're trying to find a very active, very energetic
cleansing energy, but they're using all the energy for the wrong purpose. And those are the people of our treachery. And when you talked about the third type of people, we're trying to people of idleness, the people of power, the people of inaction, laziness, idleness.
this group is even worse than the previous group. So he felt that this group, people of idleness people of action are the worst of the three groups. And certainly, you have to understand what he's what he wants to convey to you. And certainly the people who are engaged in mopsy, the people who are engaged in treachery marceia look worse than the people who are just lazy and,
you know, I know.
But he felt that these people are committing a crime of not using their bodies for any purpose, they're not using their bodies for
their DNA or their dunya. to sign the last final product, I have given the favors given the bounties and given them strengthen them. So, they are not used in any of this for any good purpose, but at the same time, you should understand that the people who are involved in disobedience and actively this obey the laws are worse than the people who are kind of or the people of inaction laziness.
But which, which makes you you know, whenever you read
this is not an alpha, perhaps even the alpha parameter. This is the process of settling. You need to have the right
but basically thinking the liar without the text or the text without the complex would lead you to some
will lead you to errors. So when you read this card statements and here I am talking about the people of Iran This is worse than the people who have acted disobedience.
You do want to basically understand that Justin his message or whatever he wants to relate to you, he wants to make high luminous look unbeliev
he wants to stimulate you to be doing what Allah subhanaw taala created you for to be performing your your job, the lottery is a new form. But that will not at the end of the day mean that people who are idle or lazy are worse than the people who are actively disobeying their board or the Treasury. So your piano above that
is wakefulness theater, mindfulness, state of wakefulness, you're doing the work to go back to the interview for Thea stitchery
bitch 23 years he talks about the parable and three types of people the example The first type is like a man. So the people that perform it, the job of law created them for the use of their events for the purpose of electric for fasting credit, and, you know,
sort of traveling and living for their livelihood for their families and all these things that are electronic. For
example, the first type is like a man who was
who was granted a spacious van, the farm and was supplied with all the instruments of need tools, seeds and water to help him in his work. After you prepare the land for farming, he planted all the various types of vegetation and events around the land with a big fence and iron guards to protect it, he kept a constant watch on his farm and looked after it fixing any soil parts replacing the plants with fresh ones removing the harmful weeds that grew around histories and spending from the profit game or the property game from selling its harvest towards its maintenance. So you give the three people favorite pieces of land or the land is good fertile.
One of the three individuals takes care of the land plants or proper trees and proper crops,
looks after his bad weeds
out the land constantly takes care of the water that guards
camp he spends also whatever he sells the profit that he makes, he spends from this profit on the land. So it means that
you know, the guard is basically the fence that you that you built around your heart to protect you from temptations, and from doubts and so on. It is the man that you strengthen, to protect you from over 1000s of patients
to weed out your land or to remove the weeds is to look after your heart and take care of the hills and ailments on your heart such as envy, hatred, the see self can see torches on the campus the arrogance on all of those
diseases. And this is a person who's also investing so he's not basically using as near as a loss
earn credit for you know, or assets in dystonia. He's he's putting that profit back into his original investment,
investment, the loss of our product or in some asset, so that we can
sue the loss protocol that could cancer or
so you're getting muscle loss, invest in your relationship with a lot to take care of you in dystonia. So, I would give you like a good career or
would provide for you or take care of your accounts or your children or this or that. So it is basically short term investment with a loss. But this one is taking the profit from the land that we investing in the land. So that is long term investment. He's getting near to us Kanaka to give it this sort of joy ecstasy that you sent you. That would make you
for more than a year or so, the near miss brings about Uranus. And Uranus is saw just for the hearings just for Goldsmith's, you are looking closer to a lot not for any immediate short term material gains, but because you want to be near, so he gets nearer and that the joy of the entrance or the pleasure of proximity to Alaska brings about more shall yearning for more proximity and, and it becomes a virtuous cycle of near this and so irritating love, proximity and so on. So it was the first type of people and then set the example of the second type is like a man who after he got his hands on the band made it into a sanctuary for dangerous beasts and animals assigned for dumping
corpses and rotten bodies, and a hideout hideout perceives This is a piece of treasure. These are people who use the bodies a lot given them and the boundaries and the faculties, you know, the size of the earring, you know, intellect, everything they're using all of those faculties and all of those body parts, for the for, you know, something is this leading to a lot for active disobedience.
And then you send an example of the third type is like a man who neglected the land and wasted the water in the desert and became regretful afterwards afterward. And then those are the people who have heedlessness these people are not doing anything, you know, and and oftentimes we are guilty of it. Like getting to
place basically, neglectful attitude, it's just like, you're you're just there.
pursuing any of any of this good for your dean or dunya. Hamelin seven,
or seven level seven level is where you're just either not not investing
not. To say I need any luck
is basically sort of insignificant.
Man I hate insignificant people or
when he explained it to be the people who are not engaged in any pursuit that is good for their Deen or their dunya.
Then none of
these examples are present the three types of people, those who are mindful people of treachery, the endless ones, so you're here. And those are the three different types of people, people that are mindful of their obligations towards the last,
using whatever bounties and favors, I have distilled them for the purpose for which he created them, and those who use it for their own purpose and those who did not use
his bounties for any purpose, he provided them. And he was
then on page 25, starts to talk about the secret and essence of salah and he said the secret and essence of Salah lies in the inclination of the heart towards the lie low and focusing the attention on him while praying. Consider the case of the person whose heart is engaged
in one's own thoughts and worldly affairs. He is like a person who business the game. No. So he talks here about the likeness of someone who comes to the prayer with his limbs but without his heart.
It's just like you petition with the king for like a meeting you asked for a meeting with the king and you have your needs and have
reliance on the king for relying or counting on this meeting for your well being so on Kindle sort of permits you into His presence. And then once you get into His presence, in common with your with your servants and you let your servants proceed in front of you to talk to the king
and you're busy located
the house are located the
If you're talking to the service of the carrier, but you're managing the addressing the king in person, you are not talking to the king. So that is the heart of the Linux, the heart since how the servants to talk to address the king, and the heart is busy occupied with whatever distractions has been occupied with, before you enter into the presence of the king, do you think that the kingdom would be really
interested in this meeting, that the kingdom would really be pleased with this meeting or your attitude. In this meeting, when you send your servants forth, and you stay behind, and certainly refuse or neglect to address, that is exactly the case of the person who comes to the prior, and those who are asked to do and engages in all of the activities with his limbs, but his heart is compson as far as stemming the strap that he's not mindful in his prayer.
So he says, however, as soon as he arrives at his doorsteps and is on the verge of calling upon him, he turns away from the king and instead starts to busy himself with things that are most disliked, and the spares to buy the cake. Even as as hard as inclined toward trivial matters. He still stands for concerns, which is his legs,
to serve Him on His behalf to serve the kingdom, the SPF and thanks, excuse and compensate for the absence of bizarre. So you're still in, like you said, submit.
And that's one difference between one phrase that one does not pray, your lips are extending
But despite the generosity and benevolence of the kindred, refuse to dismiss the servants of his slaves without granting their masters, the slave of Allah portion of his mercy, so you used to get some mercy, because you still came to prayer, can you sit in the Institute, even your heart is absent, it is out of generosity and the mercy of Allah, that he granted you
some reward for making it to his presence for entering upon him and making it to his presence with your body. Your heart is distracted, but your body is there. So he gives you a portrait of his marriage. But there is a big difference, he says, between the ones who are between the one who wins and earns the trophy, and those are given a consolation prize of compassion and mercy. Allah says, What equivalent do you do, when you feel
alone, and for all there will be ranks from what they do, or based on what they have done, that he may pay them further these company will not be wrong, they will not be shortchanged. So there is a difference between one who didn't come and the one who did not come to his presence, even with Islam. And whatever
is talking about here is basically the agreement of the football, that even if your art is absent, and he knows that he talked about this in here, and he said that what Fuqua agreed on is that if your heart is present,
when you say, Allahu Akbar, and then after it becomes absence,
he will still
be given not the only word, no, but he will still be counted, as one will pray,
you will still be counted as one who fulfilled that that theater, that drug,
or that obligation for those who don't have prayer for loss or prayer, you don't need to repeat it, because at least your heart was present at the time of the year. And then it became absent and then it became distracted with
preoccupations that you have from before the prayer the football has at this moment.
Here talks about this and he believes that
does not address the realm of reward and addresses around validity in validity. Is this valid? Is this valid? In terms of how much reward What do you get that is not the business outcome or file that is between you and a blog?
Sometimes set that while someone may walk away from the salon with one 10th of a word and one sixth of a word and so on and so, on is saying Don't be
deceived by by this agreement, your heart may be absolutely clear or supplies said that the validity means that you will not need to repeat the salaat validity does not tell you how much reward you will get from the salaat how much impact will this have on you. So, the fact that it is what is found that because you had intended to pray and vote, you were present for your mind and your heart was present at the time you made the intention and you made that like beer, and you start with your Salah, the fact that you are so bad will be that does not mean a lot in terms of how much reward you would get, and how much impact would this have on you, and how much closer it will bring you to a
So the green prizes, the grade three awards, the great benefits of the salaat
how closer to bring you to a blog, how much impact would have on your event on your psyche, how soothing it will be for you, how much reward you will get in the year after even all of these things are not
all of these things are not really addressed by the football, talk about identity for eternity.
Okay, concern as a matter of time here
towards the bottom of page 25 says a luxury to mankind solely to worship Him and He created everything else to be mankind service is related in a heartbeat, but see that I would like you to as I said before, every time I would make a correction of a translation of this is not because the translation is is not good, this is a very beautiful translation, I would have not been able to translate this book this beautifully, but some of the you know covering everybody has sort of lapses of judgment, every translator everyone. So, but this is not a healthy person
not happy because
funnier is more of a verified scholar to make this mistake, he did not fall into hobbies because this is not happy.
He says that
earlier in the history of
the use the use of our bodies interchangeably, but later as the sciences developed the use of these on alpha
distinct. So he used the author,
which means the report is very important
in that he because it is very important from a loss.
Regardless of the chain, regardless of the connectedness of the connectedness up the chain, it is very important from a loss of use.
And this was not really found in the books of Harley's, but it is probably from the people of the book, and there is no problem in including it is the meanings are correct. And if you're not calling herpes clinic, you're not saying that this is something the prophet SAW someone told us when he did not. There is no problem if the meanings are correct. The meanings are an agreement
in harmony, what is that it's not a feature that we have to do some other app and other hobbies. And what why would, why would we need it? If it is an army at agreement? Because it is it highlights a certain value in some comprehensive beautiful words that would resonate with the people that are that will have an impact on the people. So here in this event, he
that Los Santos album I created you to worship Me and created everything else for you. So why am i right upon you do not indulge in matters other than what I created you for. Actually it's a little bit more beautiful than this. Because he
said you have to have them come up to get enough. See you have to
be happy early. Lions are going
to lock arms together.
I might have created you for myself, for my worship hadn't created everything for you.
It is even something for you everything that is on Earth, Lucha Libre will have to put in there to create everything for you. So by my rights upon you do not let Do not be occupied for Do not be distracted by that which I created for you from that which I created you for. Do not be distracted by that which I created for you. I created all of these things pop out of the pleasures of dystonia, enjoyments of dystonia. linzer is the dystonia, hybrid all of this for you to worship me. So don't be distracted by that which I created for you from that which I created you for which was my worship.
tendon there is another narration also.
But the narration, you will also have to understand that even the marriage of Islam from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where it says it all sort of created you to work simply to go not to play, shut up. Don't say, Hi guaranteed your provision of this life to do not tire yourself, fella.
Don't tire yourself, but we know that finding yourself and earning your provision is is our first profitable. So let's talk about this as a form of jihad. And the area living for yourself and your family and your family from Allah is a form of jihad. So once again, he would have to put it within the confex how the general teachings out there, this is an asset, this is about hobbies. So Someone may say I don't need
to even be important. I don't, if this is an alpha may create problems that may give the people our main class some misconceptions
that, you know, people will become indifferent or people that will
take care of their own families and their responsibilities in this dunya
I don't need to take care of it. But if you do this all the time, you will also come to certain hobbies and say, sets are gonna
say, well, these were created problems, I don't need
to report them I don't mean to convey them to the people and they are presenting it what matters here is to put the text in the right context to this understand the text of any report
with the general index of the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when you hear Shabbat
you could could mean don't overdo.
Don't exhaust yourself to the point where you cannot be beautiful towards me.
Don't exhaust yourself to the point where you will be like a profit of about
a quarter or something they must have
came out with a different delay is like a donkey during the day and a dead body at night.
Meaning that you're working too hard, you're not paying attention to your obligations or
you're not leaving time or energy for your obligations to fulfill your obligations towards a loss. So that could be what it meant. Don't overdo it. It's not that you don't tire itself and earning a livelihood because you need to tire itself and earning a livelihood for yourself and your family. But don't overdo it. Don't allow this to distract you or keep you from my worship or from fulfilling your obligations towards me.
Then remember, can you
talk about experiencing detachment from a lot during the interference between the baby prayers and he sat with the
experiences finders of heedlessness detachment from a love hardening of the art. This regarding mistakes and disposition towards sinning during the intervals between the five and 80 prayers. This deplorable change of condition takes him away from the Lord or his Lord and prevents him from being near to him and mdna him from his position as the two out of a lot. Even worse, he may willingly delivered himself
To his enemy, the same thought, who captures him, puts him in chains and locks him in the prison of his space desires, causing him to experience nothing but anxiety, grief, sorrow and regret, while being unaware of the reason behind his wretched condition, oftentimes we do, you know, feel this. But where is all of this? Where is all this
depression coming from?
It certainly is because you're away from the source of your happiness, your joy,
your maker, your Creator, is through the mercy of historic he says, The Most Compassionate will decreed upon him I can comprehensive acts of worship made up of a first phases and segments and formats, each phase and then format response to the different actions he committed. And the conditions he experienced outside of this a lot more so. It is designed, so that the goodness and benefit he acquires from each phase is in a measure proportionate to his needs, has this act of worship, which is the salaah is prescribed to demonstrate his servitude to a loss of power.
It's amazing, it recruits all of your faculties for worship of Allah, how do you get it just like?
fast? Do you ever use all of your faculties? For one word, outside of the prayer? No. It uses all of your faculties combined heart, piano lens, you're using your feet, your knees, your your trauma, your hands, your forehead, your everything is being recruited for this workshop during the site that even you know, when you're a site,
even the verbal actions, the actions of the time, they are diverse in their verse, there is recitation right for there is no outright supplication. There is the you know, the mention of the loss of Allah and the praise and exaltation of a loss. All of this is combined in the prayer. So every diverse action of the tongue, and not just the fact that the heart and the lens and everything is recruited for this act of worship, you can find this outside of the store.
Then he proceeds to you know, now he will, he will start to talk about Voodoo,
he will start to talk about but before we talk about too, I want to just add one thing, which is margin to electoral
because now we'll start talking about to do and after we'll do it we'll start talking about walking to the masjid and after walking through the machine, we'll start talking about facing the Templar medic. In fact, the opening supplication is they are seeking refuge in a lot. So you will go through the phases now salaat. But before this, before this, it would be suitable to talk about logic to lay out
what I mean is
to come to your lab so that you may be pleased. That's what most
of them do. Why did you come to the end of your people? Why did you leave your people behind you I invited you and your people, most of us did not have most of these risks restless. You know he he just couldn't handle being in the company of the people because he was restless. He was yearning for this meeting with us.
Some of the shoveled yearlings and so has phases. But the last phase of shovel, you know is when you drop is when you uncap
uncap yourself what caps yourself suck. So basically sub roaches patients caps your shower coaches here, do you see an example? You see how like if there is a mother who stole the
your your son will come back from his deployment.
And he will arrive in the airport at 5pm on Sunday. And he's coming back from his deployment with the rest of his
This son had this this mother, when she'd be able to wait until 5pm, to go to the airport.
mothers are different also.
But we're talking about a loving mother, would she be able to wait for five? You know, her yearning or self for her son? What made her go much earlier? Will she be able to sit down? What do you see her just sitting down at the airport waiting for some cross legged?
No, she would be both walking back and forth back and forth looking, trying to see if you will come out earlier his airplane will bang earlier to be talking to people to comfort yourself. You know, that is cool. Right? restlessness conduct is when you uncap yourself, you feel you, you basically walk into this station of kind of restlessness.
remember, socket, Vanessa, the author of
Centered planner is basically that tangerina shop based
didgeridoo shop previous
strength, you're here in a
year and a
half the globe. For the coke of patients, it was basically to take off that look of patience can strip your ear, so it is uncapped, your yearning is uncapped, and that is restlessness and cessation of the seekers, where they can really come down. And they may look a little bit
In the year,
they may have conditions where they may look a little bit unreasonable, like a mountain, they may allow us to go out to the desert, the wilderness, and this
body pointed this out, they may
be in the garden of the lovers.
And the manager said a key and as well here, he would go out in the wilderness, the desert. And
Chen. The first is that Chinese labor, the lunatic of labor, the one who is in love with labor, is the one who was in love with either intoxicated or violent, the lunatic.
You have these words about poetry. And
one of the verses
in one of the verses he would say,
what rumanian booty lalani is one key and nappsa Yeah,
the Layer Layer is Layer Layer,
with this enduring shortening, of caratlane layer.
So he used to say referred to in binary luciani, dishon nafsa. layer, I leave that weddings, I go away from weddings, he would go out in the wilderness, so that I may talk to myself, about you for Laila in private, so that our meetup so I have complete focus
upon your love, just because it is out in the wilderness in the dark. And even in some of the reports of this verse of poetry, it is not yet late.
At night, in private,
these are things that people will experience, there is certainly the right type of
filter and thrown in, which is the value which is the level of analysis
that should not be designated to anyone other than a lot of people have these experiences, they do have this urge
to have complete focus to be like to go out into the wilderness and have complete complete focus. And that is a matter of spiritual training until we develop the power to have this complete focus in the middle of the people in which which is what the profits are some of us to have. So the process
and so on before and after, whereas,
but the preference of someone have this condition like in Medina happened, he was always surrounded by the people, when he leaves the station, where people have become indifferent, as far as trouble with the vanishing is perception, but in order for people to reach that station, they may need to seclude themselves sometimes they may need to go away to go out and away that they develop this focus on the relationship with a loss or for a loss. So, you have a meal with repeat the same person, but you tweak it to suit PNR dressing your boss.
So, you would say what to do when buying a booty Ronnie had this one. And Nuff said be silly. Not to
be silly. Can I go away from the dwelling into the wilderness, so I may talk to myself about you. So that I mean mentioned you know, I may
remember you in secret, hello, mystery how they can private Hello.
So that so this seat of color that we're talking about the state of restlessness which is the final stages of or phases of yearning. So
is basically we let me tell you the truth, we're all suffering, we're all having difficulties. We're all bombarded by the, you know, our various pursuits and disputes and
Our lack of a man and is really
working, we're talking about things that we rarely experienced, seldom experience we experienced very infrequently. And some may have never, many never experienced them or may have never experienced them. But there are we're sure that some people that we're sure with our predecessors, that we're sure that there are some people who have this in every generation, that do reach those heights that actually climb up to the top of the mountain. And we're we're sure that they exist now somewhere. And we're sure that many existed before. So
what can even be
how they translate further.
So that means a large group of over the earlier generations and Canadian means a few of the latter generations, when I lost, my father described that.
we're sure that in Panama Sahaba.
There were there were many, there are many people who actually did climb up to the top of the mountain.
Not sure that some people weren't close or are there some people
of every generation there will be some people of this own. This is
less than one.
But we have you know, that's why I'm reading this so that we can help each other out.
Practically as close to the top as we can.
So let's say that
the state of restlessness How would it translate here in terms of into in the area you're yearning for the prayers, this is your meeting with us. And if you have shelter if you have your hand
for Allah subhanaw taala then you will be waiting for the salon. We have a lot waiting for the salon for the comfortable I love the massage. It's hard because it's absolutely sad. It's like the left the lanterns and satin. His heart is hung up like a lantern mustard. So if
he leaves the mustard and he
has left behind the mustard, or you know
his art is always attached to the salon so he's always waiting for the next supper but are real
And basically, we have to always hold ourselves count, we have to always have some freckling armies, are we waiting for the next server?
Or we're just waiting for it to, you know, to just perform it to just, you know,
to do it and move on.
That's it, that that's a huge difference. So.
So yearning color, restlessness that is uncapped. Shao Kahn kept yearning. Without the slope of patience is is an experience that many of our righteous predecessors have. It made them here in prayer, the prayer made them wait for the prayer made them made their hearts attached to the prayer heart steps to the receptive. And we're sure that some of our contemporaries also are like this.
And we wish that some of us on stage
Okay, so then in Atlanta.
So, Brian at the beginning, and you know, right after that, at the beginning of the time, is first must, because it shows how excited you are about the prayer.
And how much here that you have for the meeting, both of us kind of moved on to the discussion on the sample two, is the prescribed ritual whereby their contents are placed, and removed, so about the living space.
may stand if you're in his presence, that factor will do that manifests itself outwardly is the cleansing of the body.
And the lens used in the act of worship, set up. The inward effect, on the other hand, is subtle, as it has to do with the purification of the heart for the permit, since through repentance, the two aspects of blue are inscribed in the statement in the light of the
need a lot of those who are constantly repenting, and loves those who purify themselves, the links between Taliban
and this are the ritual power is
mentioned in this verse. But it is not limited to
also the spiritual.
But within this context, you know, as the commentators say, it was describing the people of Tibet.
people have been arrested for values, there have
been known as always linked to Assad or the water cleanse this year, but the exterior of your body and tell that lenses the interior, while the water is cleansing the exterior, you do want to be in seven, you do want to be seeking the cleansing of the interior as well. Maybe we'll do an important trench work. It is a prerequisite
of the prayer. But don't just make it like
like have an accounting a prerequisite of the prayer just will do in and of itself is an important ritual. It is a spiritual ritual it is it is a very valuable
prerequisite of the prayer so so pay attention to it and be mindful of the will to at the end of the room, the profits or loss and the teachers to say
either winners or losers no go partner and a bear witness Mohammed is a messenger will not make me out to those who have returned to repentance and made me vulnerable to those who purify themselves. So why are you watching yourself you're saying to a lot, I can do this, but I count on you to purify my interior.
This is as much as I can do.
I can not wash my limbs, but I have no control for my heart I in my heart is in your hands. So between your fingers, I have difficulty taking care of the heart. So take care of that.
For me, I have difficulty cleansing my heart from all the impurities and stains in the dirt, the dirt, in the dirt has a chemical overload.
Sensitive the seed self can see, prior to envy, had all of this dirt I have no ability or I have very limited ability, I should say have very limited ability. In taking care of this without you I rely on you, I count on you think like this in my heart. From all of this. You can imagine seeing the hints of loss of Karnataka made our deficiencies made our wicked qualities tangible, visible perceptible by our eyesight, we would be scared to look at our neffs will be scared to look at our hearts will be frightened by our hearts will look lovely. If a lot of either a video showing off give you the pride, envy, greed, in fat loss are gonna be those qualities tangible, visible, while a
lot he will be scared to look at our hearts
because of the ugliness of what we will, we may see or encountered.
So, in order to be mindful of this,
a lot of people will talk about the medical benefits and medical miracles. And this is not the right context for this topic or for this discussion. But the spread of awards are immense. You know, water is extremely relaxing,
and invigorating at the same time. And that is why people have this need to go out to water bodies for relaxation. So people do this often.
People desire to live by the store, across from a water body or they ocean. It is insane human need that manifests in various ways our need for
the water, our spiritual, emotional and psychological need for water is quite obvious. It's quite known. It's very relaxing, and it is very invigorating. So it is one of the
one of the miracles of legislation that for every salami is prescribed. For us, it is a prerequisite to be our original purity, we may need to have a look for others.
But like I said, Don't neglect the spiritual aspect of every time you're reminding yourself that this video I was asked to purify only my body but my heart language and even though you know Johnny Miller was funny while you're making will do watch your events, you are thinking of how via the senses that are dropping with the water. And just being mindful of the sense of your hands, being mindful of the sense of your eyes, mindful of the sense of your mouth. When you watch when you bring your mouth being mindful of those senses when create what will make you love the people that have awareness and self reckoning more about watching, watch fullness, and that with the fact that this
is the faculty, you will be able to recognize your sin. Because you think of that when you're making a little with every member that you're cleansing from the exterior filthier thinking of how the prophet SAW some of
the water would remove your sense but thinking of this would remind you of your sins, the sins of your limbs and you're simultaneously asking Allah to cleanse your heart from its own sins which are graver breaker worse, more uglier than the sins of your above, except that they're not they're subtle. And they're not
tangible enough for the
average person to heat them.
he says protecting one servitude and attending the massage. So you're able to and you're protected. You know when you're mindful. You're oh and now you know
walking to the master and the son of drives for the systems.
They used to have even for their maps with prayers for those who are away from the past. Or they used to have misanthropy in their homes massage to the view of the massage in their own homes, where they would partition off part of their residence part of their dwellings for the salon. So, that they are going to divest it of their own home. And so that there is a specific area that is taken care of that is suitable for the salon that is clean enough for the Sahaba is suitable for the sambar and they want to put a lot of effort into
the making of this area, not to beautify contrarily, to make it as simple as possible. The least distracting, you know plays in
their roles will be chosen for this.
it says here in particular, a lot prescribed to
be in the most perfect level of purity, prior to entering upon him and standing before him as only then does he Exalted be He granted permission for his art to stand in his presence after he has become pure, both from the outside and the inside. That signifying that he is not here.
And when he enters his house, that is the master the place where he evinces for reveals his servitude to Allah he becomes one of his slaves. Now this explains the reason why extending the mustard to pray. The compulsory salon in congregation which some scholars consider obligatory to do and others consider recommended or commendable to do is leading from the aspects of perfection of one servitude to
and keep in mind that it is not only one question that you're seeking them, because they are the fuel to the loss of oranges criticism is used to do this, they use lots of different personalities to go far away massage, these are abandoned massage, it used to go to ancient Santa is to go on Saturday, it is your devotional journey, it is your spiritual retreat to go to the masjid or to go to the wilderness as I said before for those who are yearning for a loss
and they want to have this focus. So, with a watch,
homes can sometimes come in in cities and towns and so on is is suboptimal. So, they felt the need to go out woundedness for this kind of work for like a higher form of this cover with the last product going out into Saturday
is a new experience. Have you
come to some Muslim countries where there are those like holder besotted? You know
they have have an aura that is
Very, very inviting for concentration for focus for sure.
So wanting to get in and of itself is a beautiful experience because
it is this is all preparation. These This is the act of surrender, keep them keep in mind that this thing is about surrendering. It's not submission to lots of bad and you will experience the surrender of a salon sufficient to
walk into the masjid. It is easy to see how the lines of capitals or the rows of capitals will be walking from
place to face in submission and humility and you know so before you throw your hands up in submission and surrender to God and you say fear you're walking to him in surrender.
And why do you walk into the master you're making us suffer you're working on purifying yourself you're working on preparation for for this meeting
with a host
Imagine if if you're if you're going to meet like
yeah, if you're unable to meet again. Imagine how how occupied you will be with preparations for this meeting.
So we are
Mind centimeter the last one of our five times every day.
And then certainly, I'm not going to talk about preparation prayers in particular here, but there are many other benefits for the congregation prayer, in addition to
inshallah, we'll start here and then when we come back after five to
when we come back after seven minutes, we'll start with servitude
preparation for prayer.
We're all the way up to the computer now to talk about the preparation for prayer.
And we're all the way up to the air and that is on page 29.
The arm the law is then ordered to stand with his face in the direction of
him having his heart facing as well. being fully attentive to him be mindful of him, as exhausted as a so as to renounce his previous state of rebellion, and to stop running away from this door. This rainbow Lodge, therefore stand up before his master and humility of submission, calling for his capacity, with his hands thrown at his size for his hands, no.
Problem, second instance, throw it up like this
act of surrender. And he said
tilt his head down.
Now that we have like this, it's not that he survives, it's just 70 was kind of the moment it down a little bit or a little bit, this is the perfect position.
Because it was a lot
When would you stand when you have done something wrong, and he said before 30 finger, you will find yourself naturally to figure it down a little bit
out of embarrassment, and aggressiveness. So this is a manifestation of
the show of humanity regretful
to a loss of capital, you're tired to tilt your head down a little bit. And when you look at the face of your frustration on your credit.
Then he says he's in a while, by the same time as RF is fully effective state of the ability as he devotes all his senses to his service and glorification by declaring with his tongue and proclaiming in his heart that he is the greatest, which is expensive, a lot is greater than anything he may have in his heart. And he affirms the statement by dismissing everything except the law from his heart. His heart is completely occupied with Hello, sometimes
I told you that he talked about the presence of the art to be Africa condition here.
Have the time of year at the time of starting your practice, at least we should
try to extend it from there as much as we can set it up. You know the presence of God.
I know that we wouldn't be insensitive,
because you're you're free to know what you're doing. You need to know that you're praying
and so on. Otherwise, it would not be valid.
But beyond this,
force yourself to bring your art to
the presence of your board. Because I don't know a lot of stuff that
that even though the proxies valid, but imagine disallow someone who's only attentive at the time of year. This is like a body that's alive.
But completely paralyzed, completely paralyzed, motionless. So that that is the salon, the one who made it to be to be acceptable dad, because he knew what made us do it. And he didn't try it. And who wants to do that at the time of year, you know, the back now praying, he intended to do this as worship to us.
So he just breathed life into his Salah May he made it valid, he breathed life into some other
other type of beer. But thereafter, his art was distracted. So it became like emotionless,
paralyzed, but it can certainly
be like a living body that is completely paralyzed.
So in our marketing is here to
present the benefits teams to address the benefits effect here.
And he said that fear serves two main purposes. But that's the heart from the aforementioned effects being occupied with something other than a loss of power.
And it also protects the heart from arrogance, because you remember that, you know,
and it was so beautiful that, you know, I heard the
overseer, talking about, you know, the site of the site when he used to say, not, maybe this is what he meant at the time of how he regretted having satellite operators.
How he realized that this was like, a big mistake on his part. And
the only a lot could be described by these therapists of creativeness and majesty and glory. And when you say no, but you do want to be mindful of the speakers, even though you may not be saying like, the greatest of the times you behave like you are.
Or you behave by
your operator, at least that a lot of people have family members and friends, a lot of your companions, you behave like you are and if you behave like you are, that is
that's actually a more consequential statement, the statement of your time, your context, your behavior,
it's more of what you really think of yourself, then the significance of the Ramadan is. So think about it, even if you're not saying, Are you acting like you are? Do you think that you are, and that was certainly the greatest, but greater, because you should not? Because that was Lisa's problem when he thought that is greater than average.
So to say every time you say,
just to remind yourself that it is only a law that is deserving of this skip,
this is greatness. Thank you, Brianna. Kibriya is my upper garment law says this.
He says great, and our Majesty is my lower garment and whoever competes with me for that break.
You may be broken but you don't
because you may be totally broken. You think that you have a good career and you have a good car without a good wife and your spouse or with this or that
and that you are not broken but you may be broken. You know the biggest break is the distance by us.
To keep you at a distance nothing's the greatest calamity. They create this deflection that may be full you could look
at each and every break or every fracture.
There may be compensation
from it, except about a break for the calamity or the loss in one's the important religious commitment in one's relationship with others
you're also saying
that everything I have been occupied with before this before this a lot. But in order for you to truly
have this focus and concentration,
just make sure that you finish all your, all of your business before the sell off. You know, practically speaking, you know, you're saying a lot greater than all of the distractions is greater than the dinner I'm waiting for is greater than my occupation with certified best at work or
business site, the dogs finish off or this or that,
to say this, but it will help you because we're not there yet. At some point, you may get there by a Saturday said,
we are sure that some people got their short enough off people got there we are off here. So he's going to help us that we take maybe provisions for for to not be distracted. And you know, you just take care of your business, finish it off, eat your dinner, like, like use the bathroom, eat your dinner.
If you have to say something to somebody say call them up, talk to them about it, anything that may distract, you just finish it off prior to the start that you're afraid of prior to saying hello Africa so that when you say hello Africa, it's meaningful, in some meaningful, Allah is truly greater than all of your distractions, which you work hard to take care of. And also the distractions that are around you. So that's why when we sat at the center
of the world, we used to have this humble secluded quiet call place in front of it to avoid the momentary distractions during the prayer the prison distractions and that is why you should not decorate them or sad
to distract the people from the prayer that's why there is
there is this like condemnation of the decoration of the South London office and multiply that to 74 now by a lot of you will decorate that like the Christians and the Jews did before you
because it's one of the signs of the Day of Judgment so as it
is important from the profit sell sound that
the prohibition of this or the disliking of this let's say the disliking of
decoration because of the destruction
on the prompt someone like a construction worker to take care of a lesson and he said
don't use any colors don't
don't use any red or yellow so that he will not cause significant people distract people from prayer at the moment you should also work on this Why did the law say in
so what it means what
it hasn't every heavier what's next yes okay.
It's the prayer at night the length of the procedure at the recitation of the light prayer at night when you're when you're making the reservation half life during your life prayer Allah sounds and has an energetic heavier path to shuffle the world has a heavier impact meaning
impact results in brings about the right benefits results. Why is this because of the calmness and the quietness of the night are conducive to focus for sure. Infinity concentration at night.
So the darkness that envelops you at night is certainly very helpful industry
and during the day, you will also need to sort of tone it down at least a common now. You know hold the distractions. How about face if you can afford to have a place at home that has the least amount of distractions,
the cigarette, the simplest plainness thing, this is where you will. You should be praying or you're being the master
Your own little
prayer rugs that we have. Why are we doing this to the pharaohs? It's just like, we're being certain of courage that like, someone is urging us to do this, someone is pushing us to do this.
Why are we integrating them? You know, when it's just like counterproductive, it's self defeating. You want to have a player that is very plain and simple. If you need therapy, no one needs to
know. But if you want to have a prayer, right, if you want to make this semester of your home, where your prayer rug lays, that we're wise, then then that's fine to have a prayer mentioned to finding the one if you can find find the one with you, so
can be played or just get a playing computer, it doesn't have to be called prayer doesn't have to be tagged as a pair, right? go out and buy yourself or that is completely fine. Call it my prayer I can use
so the idea here is our righteous predecessors used to have the ability to southpaw meaningfully even if there were distractions, even if they were in a war zone.
London is the value you know, you know, the five volts of the capital
the manager into the fire of the with the they would go between his theory and just have you would not wish he would laugh, you know, look around
in the circle, like you'd be making requests for the Federal Capital to move his penis in may have one beard between his beard in his chest and that would not make him Twitch.
Because is just like you know
hakama would stand up in prayer and the harm that birds would stand on top of is

He says Well, I don't I don't see anymore the trunk of the tree that used to be there sometimes on top of a consumers house. So, his mom, his mother said that this was not a cabinetry this was a sword in prayer. So,
thank you see you like us Sam and it goes on for a very long time. You would think that there was like a
night to think that there was some structure, pillar trunk of a tree or something that the the use of place they are sometimes and
this used to be a console
when you also say Allahu Akbar European pig a minion, that is Akbar. The mentioned remembrance of a loss from a pattern is greater than anything else. And what I

last five policies and sort of like a booth in the salon.
The salon deters somebody from lewdness,
acts of evil
a lot after a while, selectors have some different loops and all forms of evil
and the importance of apply is greater. So plenty of reports from
this is a reflection of this. What is a cruel loving Africa? It is even Akbar from it is even greater than the Salah, the terror that was not the proper fracture. So
Pawan mentioned two benefits for the salon here the remembrance of a plot has deteriorated the person who makes the salon from fracture. So, he said that
that the visitors from the shampoo is great, but even greater This is a mere mentioned and remember it so they asked what are
Okay, so that is that
like I said, because we're not there yet we need to make every possible privileges. So that when we say a lot what but it is a meaningful Allahu Akbar, he truly you will truly be not occupied with the
distractions of this Boolean.

But he ran with me here mentioned this because he's happening. So he mentioned this application that

Ron is further determined to prevent the app from praying by any means failing to do so he wants to see, he wants to see to it that at the very least his heart does not benefit from it. So if he if he kept him from praying and he kept you from praying with your body, he is very keen to see your heart absent in this prayer. So Allah told you,
this particular enemy he cannot handle without me.
This is an enemy that he cannot handle without me. This is very sneaky, very subtle, very important, very powerful. I hate to
say that you are you need me and your ally on me, and your
resistance against your fight with

So he says here towards the bottom of the page it is trauma loss, knowledge about the enmity and resentment

So that he may suffice against his evil heart. It is as if he has saved a slave. You cannot win against this entity. The sacred refuge of me and I shall protect you against them can safeguard you from this evil that are condemning them pain and suffering. metaphor may have taught you

There is no use in fighting with a dog. Instead, turn into the shepherd can seek his cell for leashes can save you the trouble. If the shepherds dog
ever barks at you,
attempting to attack you, then do not engage it in a fight. Instead, turn to the shepherd and seek His help for evolution can save you the trouble.
to master this dog will easily go the dark and the guard will calm down in a minute will tell the dog to calm down, calm down 27 engaging the dog in a fight, just turn to his master can see his help. And that is really beautiful. That's true. Because we have many, many

If you're defeated,
if you lost
something precious, something valuable, or you were defeated,
do not you know, the knot basically attempts to address each individual defeat separately.
Because you will be overwhelmed. You're having difficulties at work. And some people get over it because you know they have trouble with their spouses and they have difficulties at work, have they been also have some of their own health
challenges that haven't been they may have multitudes of issues, like I don't like my neighbor, the lack of a spouse and the blank word. So a lot of things that have accumulated have overwhelmed to defeat you. But all of these just disregard the same capacity. So I'm not saying the

to Allah subhanaw taala he's not giving you up to all of those dogs, he would have
allowed all of them to bark at you at the same time for two attacking you at the same time.
And keep in mind,
that's a matter of perception.
Because open lungs could be barking, but you're not perceiving their barking you're not affected by it is not
touching you it's just
it's not even the strategy.
The problem is not that the dogs are barking the problems is that you are overwhelmed by their barking.
So someone who was righteous in the idea of law could have about dogs barking and they would bark.
But the problem and I'm sorry I may have been wrong by saying that.
The dogs are barking at you at the same time.
be affected by the barking dogs becomes our right
This person may have a lot of dogs barking
around a lot of things to overwhelm them to weigh him down, he's not weighed down or she's not weighed down.
She is not impacted. Or he is, you know, the strap.
Parking, there are troubles at work that you know, look at the principal's office, look out the window and
many barking dogs around.
But they did weigh him down, they did impede him.
And even if it does momentarily, temblor
page with an ever do it would never be effective and NPM in you will never stop you
will never we never overwhelm you. Because we're never overwhelmed. And that's that's the point here. So you have dogs barking at you.
And you're you feel overwhelmed, you feel weighed down by all of the burdens, responsibilities, challenges,
turn to Allah subhanaw taala and seek his help, because all those things are there is complete control. And if he did not keep them from barking, he will he will give you strength to have the sparking an immunity against this part.

Prior to it, he won again. He is double winning, like twice as big of this defeat, they were defeated before chicky were defeated before by you. Greater defeat defeat that is twice as big as this defeat affected you. And so we'll see that reflection of the forward you
have which affected your enemy before to make that happen. You said Where did this come from?
Who am I talking to? Why am I
so we're more than deserving of saying this ourselves. You know, a lot of setting them don't ask Where did this come from, but who say it is from you. It is from your own works. It is from your own failures, it is from your own shortcomings, because a lot of different races from as long Sankara river region this covenants if you are Alliance or if you give victory to give you victory, we should be always mindful of this. And whenever we are defeated, personally, individually or collectively as groups, or even as
we say to ourselves is because of our failures, because a lot of them have breaches covenants, and his covenant with us is sort of like so instead of, you know, looking around
