00:00:56--> 00:00:57


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

a cola Coca Cola

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

must be more similar

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

to procedure service of a law

00:01:10--> 00:01:26

we all go through times of increased and decrease the amount of increases and decreases flows up and down for two weeks, and we all find ourselves during certain times where we feel that

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

increased or that we feel good about our hearts our connection with

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

our without our even relationships of people, sometimes we go through

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

times of weakness, weakness of faith,

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

disturbed relationships with people also some

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

relationship with

00:01:59--> 00:02:00


00:02:01--> 00:02:08

with our connection to the messenger of love, our love for the core philosophy

00:02:09--> 00:02:10


00:02:11--> 00:02:19

is either that never convince us to a point where people will have doubts about their significant

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

relationship or no connection.

00:02:26--> 00:02:38

Messenger for fever, it never dips below this. But it moves down the ministers to another word it is concerning to that needs to be concerning for us

00:02:39--> 00:03:32

to have the minister sign up for the Ministry of art part of the weakness of our mmm is our lack of commitment is our disturbance in relationships with the people even because those are the creation of Allah subhanaw taala alone you will put yourself in the hearts of people and vice versa. So, when we experienced this, we have to resort to the city out of pocket. So, we have to find what it is that we should be doing during this time. First of all, we have to recognize that these times did come by but no one will have consistent level of email throughout the buyers without ups and downs. Because it is part of the human nature, human beings are very inconsistent. In fact, it's what is

00:03:32--> 00:03:40

called insanity because of his forgetfulness and this yeah forgetfulness. So human beings are inconsistent.

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

We have given the provenance that he forgot and we did not claim

00:03:50--> 00:04:07

to have great determination to motivate determination that keeps you consistent all the time. So that consistency, fluctuation that variation, up and down is part of human nature. And we have to recognize that it could

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

be also true for us.

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

So what should we do when fire, lethargy, the time or a weakness of the timer

00:04:21--> 00:04:26

relative disconnection with a loss of Allah His Messenger in his book comes by

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

the prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:04:32--> 00:04:32

over the last

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

several Americans suffer from mechanical problems as a matter of law we cannot

00:04:43--> 00:04:52

guarantee for every action but as a form of energy and for every kind of energy it is followed or every time of energy is promo, by promo cleverly refunds,

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

lots of tea.

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

So whosoever whosoever

00:05:01--> 00:05:07

Which leads to my same goes back, which leads to my son. During this time of

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

lassitude, this time of weakness, forgot your password.

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


00:05:19--> 00:05:21

deserved structure will be the spring.

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

So what is our practice? Or what do we see from

00:05:29--> 00:05:58

our clients of weakness, or claims of weakness when you fail, that you feel that you're failing in your commitment, you have you, you're used to doing certain things that you fail to commit to that you have left some of your commitments out, you are not planning as often as you should. We're talking about prayers form of opium and life, you're not fasting as many that is a given, especially charity, you're not really thinking

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

about too much, you're not recycling. As much you're

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

progressing in your relationship with a lot. And

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

then we do have certain

00:06:16--> 00:06:16


00:06:18--> 00:06:48

elements that we have to hold on to during this time until we recover. And certainly you should be looking forward pretty quickly, we should not be content with holding on to those five elements mentioned, without looking forward to recovery or trying to recover from this weakness and go back on the path of commitment, the path of energy, the path of progress in our in

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

our relationship with a loss of

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

one of the things that are extremely important

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

five things would be

00:07:01--> 00:07:02


00:07:05--> 00:07:11

secondly, a trauma can start the it would be

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

a cool victory event. Firstly, it will be

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

it won't be.

00:07:21--> 00:07:34

So the first one, the first one of these five elements is basically the remembrance of Allah heedfulness can jacoba wait for this remembrance.

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

recitation of

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

the second one is basically an end to our major and most essential commitments, the Pillars of Islam are cameras,

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

and avoidance of enormities.

00:07:55--> 00:08:22

Thirdly, we'll be keeping good company which is extremely essential in our classrooms, a weakness in our times of forgetfulness is important to the PR company in the world parkansas company, and what it is, firstly, is basically showing all forms of injustice, inequity, transgression, oppression,

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

of foreigners,

00:08:25--> 00:08:42

unfairness and injustice to others is extremely important. During this time fifthly is basically the thoughts of Allah subhanaw taala and cannot let this fear over. Take your soul, your spirit.

00:08:43--> 00:08:50

If you go back to the first one, which is thick, robocut entreprises the remembrance of Allah. If you look at the

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

weakness of this connection,

00:08:55--> 00:09:07

lassitude isn't. It can manifest in different ways. It can manifest in different ways, you're wrong about yourself, you feel wrong about your commitment to a loss of power.

00:09:09--> 00:09:16

As, as your shift when you're walking, you you walk on the street, you feel basically lack of energy

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

to people and most commitments.

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

But most are very, are very

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

superficial, but they are mere manifestations of the root cause of the problem. The problem is that there is a problem in your heart and it is manifested in various ways. But all of these are just manifestations that your heart has become distant from the loss of power. And the degree of remembrance of a loss of power. The most essential to bring your arms back has to give your heart the tranquility that admitted as it blocks the tranquility, that it costs the last Coronavirus isms

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


00:10:03--> 00:10:04

Allah, Allah,

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

to those who believe and find simplicity and remembrance of Allah.

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

Allah hearts will find tranquility. So if your heart is having this disconnection, if your heart is feeling distant,

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

and this is manifesting in different ways on your actions,

00:10:25--> 00:10:47

your planetary your connections with the people, your interactions with people when you look back at the root cause, because you keep on treating the symptoms, and you keep on giving yourself adverse effects, to treat the symptoms that may be due to just maybe I should take care of my kid, certainly it is important that

00:10:50--> 00:11:09

it is important because all of these will be treating the symptoms, the heart of itself has become this thing from the last paragraph, and that is the root cause of all of the symptoms that you're suffering from you go back and you feed the root cause and the thinking for the root causes by the connection and remembrance of Allah had

00:11:11--> 00:11:19

no clue, most apparently very good friends of a lot of parts will find tranquility, and many of us will find that sometimes part

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

is apart from fiction. So

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

we shall show the more science it memorizes in

00:11:34--> 00:11:44

them and in themselves and they become certain that the truth become certainly not the truth. So although we have not seen

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

a lot, even though you do Converse facade, if you feel the presence of a lion here, so walk this is your conversation with a lion, regardless of your conversation with

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

our proprietary conversation.

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

I will talk to

00:12:07--> 00:12:12

you listening to the message directly from our last time have not seen

00:12:13--> 00:12:38

it. It's all around you. Each and every clinician around you is a testimony after testimony on the presence of a creator that created you someone is in the flow. All of this is that this happens around you indicates the presence of a controller not only a creator, but the presence of a controller, you know, your heart beats, that you're not controlling how many heartbeats that you have.

00:12:41--> 00:13:27

There's anyone here that I'll only beat heartbeats. Last minute, this is basically you wouldn't be alive if your heart is not beating, and your mind control who is in control who's controlling your heartbeat, who's controlling all of this 30 flexion reflection unraveling via personal introspection a personal reflection person that does not you know, surrender to effortlessness that does not interest is basically when you're occupied by you know, your working career, your money, your wife, your kids, your mundane routine of your life occupies you from or prevents you from reflecting on everything that is around you reflecting on everything that is present you reflecting on your own

00:13:27--> 00:13:38

journey reflecting on the gray areas, you're having your beer that you're having in your house, the blessings are on the you know the person, your friends and your relatives and

00:13:42--> 00:13:42


00:13:45--> 00:13:47

to be healthy revenue,

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

revenue, so

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

you know, to be to be occupied by a mundane routine of life and reflecting on all of this will take you away from it.

00:14:00--> 00:14:05

Because behind all this is the controller is the creator is the product of

00:14:07--> 00:14:24

a lot. So criminal karma is the ones behind all of this. When you're a collector and all of us here reflect on your journey and in life at the end of the book, destination editable manifestation for life you will remember allow the Creator of all things and

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

bring it to your heart.

00:14:31--> 00:14:32


00:14:35--> 00:14:36

remember, it's

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

never too early the believers are those who will almost always mentioned what in the past become concern. What is fear and concern the hearts become peace.

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

versus a la carte recycle the increased

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

400,000 trees connected with

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

the highest forms of

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

recycling his own word

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

because of remembering the, you know, the treatment of the root cause of problems, which is assistance from

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

jacoba usefulness is the is the root cause of all problems the proximate

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

cause the best of all these

00:16:05--> 00:16:06


00:16:08--> 00:16:12

So, how should I not tell you off the best of your size of your

00:16:14--> 00:16:38

first video, in the purest and the size of your November phrases do the most random things, and one of them is best spent the charity from you know from from your gold currency and silver, gold and silver currency seeking rather than confronting your enemy and making it the next lacemaking get your next victory.

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

And keep in mind, this is not

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

just by the time but this is by the time accompanied by

00:16:50--> 00:17:03

the heart of the presence of the heart and the evilness of the mind. So, that is the first thing it is the treatment of the cause. And without it, you can eat listeners coupler, and once you have

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

that, it is very unlikely

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

that you come back or you will have a great difficulty in coming back to that to the path of

00:17:17--> 00:17:21

termination for azima in Urubamba in your connection

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

to finding this weakness of faith that you have experienced at some point in your journey.

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

So think of eyes is number one, the second one is to commit to the pillars and it requires some knowledge, what are the

00:17:40--> 00:17:44

major enormities the major additions that are completely for different

00:17:46--> 00:17:47


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

in the

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


00:18:02--> 00:18:07

need certain things to worry or you make certain things for him.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

So now Do not cry.

00:18:13--> 00:18:14


00:18:15--> 00:18:18

you need some components for you don't overstep them.

00:18:21--> 00:18:21


00:18:24--> 00:18:26

certain things, so good.

00:18:27--> 00:18:43

So to hold on to the pillars, even if you're having weakness, even if you're not able to do much, even if you're mature enough to assume the act, but there are certain dividends, but one must have must, must hold on to all the player.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

characters that

00:18:49--> 00:18:57

we should all be familiar with. You hold on to those that you won't That goes without neglecting them is the proper service for you.

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

It is not it's not an instruction that

00:19:04--> 00:19:04

you have

00:19:06--> 00:19:17

with your prayers, if you have to. If you can't create anything about the five daily prayers, please leave those with, you know, consciousness, be conscious.

00:19:18--> 00:19:24

You know, don't be absent minded. Do those with alertness and give them their due respect.

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

Prepare yourself for exam make sure that you're not

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

away, because don't get them out of the way.

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

And many times we do this brothers and sisters we

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

just to get out of the way and

00:19:45--> 00:19:50

how could we, you know, basically we have those

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

developing car problems. So that's the second thing. The third thing is to keep

00:20:02--> 00:20:02


00:20:07--> 00:20:16

reminded us of the transgressors. Remember, they have talked about one of the major problems is the fact that we cannot back

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

remember, when the trans person would fight on his hands and he said, I

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

have a problem.

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

Messenger is

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

worn to the

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

console. So, for a pregnant the practice of

00:20:54--> 00:20:54


00:21:04--> 00:21:19

if the man follows the religion or the play of his friends, so, the friend goes, so, be careful with regard to friendships or speaker permits affecting your friends and the prophets. once asked by

00:21:21--> 00:21:25

a charming number of our customers once asked, which one

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

which one,

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

whereas he

00:21:40--> 00:21:40


00:21:43--> 00:21:43

the one that

00:21:45--> 00:21:49

this side looking at, you remember our last

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

listening speech, your increase in knowledge, I have not seen his actions, you are reminded every year after this

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

the meaning of the applications are

00:22:08--> 00:22:11

the one that you would be reminded by seeing him or

00:22:13--> 00:22:22

his speech increases, you acknowledge his actions remind you of the hereafter. So, the good company is extremely important, because it is

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

even if you become someone

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

you do not want to be alone, that is the

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

easiest preferable

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

you do not want.

00:22:39--> 00:22:51

And alone, at least if you are somewhat distant, keep yourself by those who are not listening, so that we can pull you back so that he could bring me back to the past.

00:22:52--> 00:23:00

It is, it is extremely important as well, that you keep in the company out the scholars, people,

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

remind you are members of

00:23:05--> 00:23:15

people that could give you good counsel, wisdom, proven, you know, concept based in Revelation based in the core and assuming that because there is nothing

00:23:16--> 00:23:36

that is based in the parameters of the word of Allah subhanaw taala and the physicians on this prophet sallahu wa sallam scholars that our winters in the book of alignments and messenger are ones that will be able to give you good counsel, failure in times of weakness in your times of lethargy.

00:23:37--> 00:23:50

And it is also important number four about the VA is extremely important that you would not be losing. If you're not getting much, you know, certainly we hope that

00:23:53--> 00:23:53


00:23:56--> 00:24:15

it would be good, but you're not getting much because you're just limiting yourself to the bare minimum. It is it is a crime of weakness. It is a it's a domino effect on your journey to a lost criminal Corolla, and you're not getting that much of these to be losing who feels like someone you know,

00:24:16--> 00:24:22

has depression, unfairness iniquity, that is basically like having a formative factor.

00:24:23--> 00:24:30

No matter what you do, you lose you lose, you lose. So if you're not investing much if you're not getting much,

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

otherwise, if you prefer to focus on

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

your most important core value hierarchy, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said metalia

00:24:46--> 00:24:46


00:24:56--> 00:25:00

so we will he will have transcription

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

This proverb that most people are given this today, here now,

00:25:06--> 00:25:10

because they are at the center, Yama piano, you know, and there

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

will be no currency except

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

no currency

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

exchange accepted

00:25:20--> 00:25:33

this now before it could be taken and your husband would be taken from the car of your brothers and sisters has gone on to you. So at least if you're not making much progress

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

Please don't be slipping back.

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

If you're not getting close, so parking

00:25:41--> 00:25:47

is extremely important with all forms of inequity. And injustice is extremely important.

00:25:49--> 00:26:01

Because if you say I can't read this much, I can't find my good friend yours. You know, I can speak to this much I can do this this much. Don't say

00:26:02--> 00:26:12

pressure because everybody care, this is something that everybody can do, which is refrain from oppression and pain from inequity.

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

The last thing

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

you know, proper practice.

00:26:20--> 00:26:25

Never deliver to the Spirit because once you have fallen into the spirit of your

00:26:26--> 00:26:27

your response have a

00:26:29--> 00:26:36

negative effect. That is basically a Schieber that isn't, you know,

00:26:37--> 00:26:44

there's no other source of destruction. But once the once the Americans connection with the last bomber pilot

00:26:47--> 00:26:48


00:26:49--> 00:26:52

occurred, negative. That's why the proxy will

00:27:00--> 00:27:02

not abuse your power except my

00:27:03--> 00:27:04


00:27:05--> 00:27:06

Except what are the thoughts?

00:27:19--> 00:27:19


00:27:26--> 00:27:26


00:27:29--> 00:27:34

room falls into the spirit of mercy, except the ones that are just going to

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

disappear from the mercy of

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

the Capitol. So hold on to the pool.

00:27:48--> 00:28:07

And they're not stay there. Do not just say that, you know, when he gets through, I will make him you know, progressed in my life, you know, working next clip, that is a that's exactly what we're doing when we do the bare minimum. Not right, except when we are trying to get closer

00:28:08--> 00:28:20

or more commitment, and so on the senior increase in our face visiting a preview in his pocket next to him walking next to the clip. However, we have a producer Brian, welcome, thanks to the good.

00:28:24--> 00:28:29

You're putting yourself in, you're putting yourself in great danger by

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

keeping their price thing their next

00:28:35--> 00:28:43

person would accept this. No do this in this life, despite the fact that what is it that you can lose in this life.

00:28:44--> 00:28:52

So in your relationship with your muscle profile, I mentioned is the cushion of sleep. Make sure that you stay away from the cliff before you fall off.

00:29:13--> 00:29:29

So the summary of this is, is that when we feel this connection when we feel nice in our face when we feel you know, when I'm able to experience that sweetness of faith that we may have experienced have

00:29:30--> 00:29:34

never experienced, but we know for sure that it exists, because we know

00:29:37--> 00:29:42

for sure that many of the actress predecessors and many people profess to have experience

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

and we should look for that we should speak

00:29:47--> 00:29:53

to it. But during our time, weakness, the five things that you should hold on to

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

we will pull off

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

completely destroyed city that

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

is, number one.

00:30:11--> 00:30:12

Number two.

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

Number three is to have a big company.

00:30:22--> 00:30:22


00:30:24--> 00:30:30

number four is to stay away from all forms of injustice, to get back to the news

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

number five is to continue to have good thoughts.

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

Brothers and sisters, even sisters,

00:30:44--> 00:30:56

because it is extremely important that we you know, all that much as much of this will be here will be the American you know that remembrance

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

master is

00:31:00--> 00:31:02

is the symbols of

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

it, there's never a place to be a reminder.

00:31:09--> 00:31:19

In one of his, one of his youth, the Salah is in the good company is in domestic.

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

If you're in domestic point of view the arranger justice,

00:31:24--> 00:31:27

pressure and if you're in a house

00:31:30--> 00:31:30


00:31:31--> 00:31:33

that, that's sort of your host.

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

So, it is important that

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

when we find this

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

you know,

00:31:44--> 00:31:59

our favorite part of this weakness in our face, it is important that we come around ourselves with the company, even it even applies to the sisters Yes, it is better for you know, the salon for the sister is greater.

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

But that is just a lot

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

to get out of the salon benefits because he

00:32:09--> 00:32:12

basically came here after mustard.

00:32:13--> 00:32:21

Mustard that is the wife of the Prophet that leaving women during the time of the prophet SAW seven does not cease to be a problem,

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

particularly for the nighttime prayers

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

during the darkness of the night, with the Nazis

00:32:33--> 00:32:49

coming to the mustard because they realize that yes, they want to do so much greater when there are added benefits like being surrounded by the good company like check it out on your sister's like an ED like listening to some of

00:32:53--> 00:33:00

the the habit of combining pretty word for this one you could make

00:33:03--> 00:33:04


00:33:05--> 00:33:13

because of the combined reward, but certainly because the system is cannot keep on going back and forth five times are at the

00:33:15--> 00:33:21

mercy of virtue of novelty. Granted, very worried for

00:33:24--> 00:33:24


00:33:26--> 00:33:34

men who were demanded to come to the earth a few more, they were told, you get the free one if you're hearing

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

the rewards that we get when we begin

00:33:40--> 00:33:48

taking care of their household and taking care of their commitments towards their household with children and so on and so forth. Yeah.

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

There are winds combining the benefits,

00:33:56--> 00:34:02

is praying at home is preferable over time, then you would have not caught

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

up for the

00:34:09--> 00:34:10


00:34:15--> 00:34:21

He understood this thought that this is only concerned with the word prayer

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

is extremely important for revitalization.

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

For the regeneration of our faith.

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

You're having to make this even if you say that permanence is is not an obligation and that's

00:34:45--> 00:34:51

to the point where many of us college students obligatory it was an extremely emphasize.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

Even if you say this, and you say this is my weakness, how do you demand me here?

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Which is not obligatory,

00:35:04--> 00:35:21

obligatory I'm telling you, if you are in your home of weakness, then you should seek strength from your brothers and your sisters from coming to the council. So this is not just like any other acts of no APA or any other

00:35:22--> 00:35:30

paperback This is basically trying to seek strength. get beyond that that weakness by calling

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

yourself quite courageous company of the video
