All right like it if you need to grab breakfast you could go grab breakfast

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

to speed free.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:16

It's on the Microsoft

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


00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

to the last video I'm going

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

to proceed.

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

Today inshallah we will have the chapter of Hightower, the station of hair and Vanessa serene Stations of the wayfarers.

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

book written by the moment how do we reckon Allah tala Abdullah Ansari and how are we?

00:00:44 --> 00:00:51

Who was from Herat current Afghanistan, who died in the year 481 after his

00:00:52 --> 00:00:53


00:00:55 --> 00:01:07

his book has 100 stations we have covered the 83 of the 100 stations. Today we will cover Station Number 84. We have 16 stations and so a lot to finish the book.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:17

In this station is section 84 or chapter 84. He talks about that higher. It's tighter than higher or life.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:33

Chippenham Allah tada started by saying, God Allah azza wa jal, Ganymede and farheena. A lot of mighty said and is one who who was there, and we give him life. And Jeff usually

00:01:34 --> 00:01:39

just quotes part of the ayah because the whole book is

00:01:41 --> 00:01:42

is meant to be

00:01:44 --> 00:01:45


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


00:01:49 --> 00:01:58

it's meant to be easy to read to memorize. So that's why it's a very brief book, almost

00:01:59 --> 00:02:20

a ciphered book that needs to be deciphered. The rest of the eye, the eyes and sort of animated for Hannah Montana Madonna Hunan, MTV finance karma masala hoof is automatically supercar determiner acrobatic is Rena Kadena McHenry, Ahmed Ahmed kanamycin farheena is one who was that and then we gave him life

00:02:22 --> 00:02:35

farheena kamisato Lake wa one who is in the darknesses needs to be hydrogen minha never to emerge there from never to emerge there from from the darknesses

00:02:43 --> 00:02:53

and kanamycin for HANA is one who is dead and we give him light emtb finesse to walk with with it among the people

00:02:54 --> 00:03:04

light with which he deals with the people that are enlightened which he interacts with the people a light with which he walks among the people so he was dead. And Allah gave him the light of

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

guidance, the light of the revelation.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:29

Nazca method offers a lot of math like one who has in the darkness, as I said, because the demand has never to emerge there from kinetic ASEAN and cafe number and macadamia nuts it has been adorn or has been made to appear beautiful for the disbelievers or the unbelievers, that which leaves

00:03:31 --> 00:03:37

so we adorn them as leads to them. And that's a great punishment from Xena, those who already

00:03:40 --> 00:03:47

have you seen the one who is misleads or bad deeds are evil deeds have been adorned for him.

00:03:49 --> 00:04:02

And he saw them beautiful, he saw his misdeeds beautiful. And that's basically one of the severest punishments for bad deeds. Anyway, the sheriff is talking about

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

the different type of hire, of course, not the physical hire that we know of.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:16

But he's talking about the higher of the Spirit, the higher of the heart,

00:04:17 --> 00:04:29

the true higher the higher. Because if we are originally, spirits that were granted bodies that were given bodies,

00:04:31 --> 00:04:43

then without the spirits, we don't have real life, even if our bodies are functional, or by definition, alive.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

This is not the real life.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:55

And we do recognize the differences between different types of life even in

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

in that physical life. We do recognize the difference between digital life

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

You could have tissues that are live well after you die.

00:05:05 --> 00:05:17

We have vegetative life, you know the persistent vegetative state, those who are familiar with medical terms, when when people have

00:05:18 --> 00:05:25

no input or output, but they are still having the physiological functions to be

00:05:26 --> 00:05:27


00:05:29 --> 00:05:42

And then we have, you know, the, basically, the ascension to locomotive life where there is an input and an output. So, we do recognize the different types of life,

00:05:43 --> 00:06:01

all of those different types of life that we as human beings can have, we have digital life, we have the vegetative life and we have the sentient locomotive life, all of those lives are not free lives, without the life of the Spirit without the life of the Spirit.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:05

Then the jF talks about

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

you know, the different levels of life, he says, he has, you shall be selected he or she theodosia. The name life in this respect, is used in reference to three things. The name life in this respect is used in reference to three things. And then he will talk about the three levels that he usually talks about, but maybe we should talk first about

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

the different types of life

00:06:35 --> 00:06:41

that the mountain the mountain climber Han Allah mentioned in the data set again.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:53

So, he mentioned the first type of life and he mentioned we actually 10 different types of life and you could act them many more it depends on how you classify

00:06:55 --> 00:07:32

life or how you classify the different levels of life. You can actually take out some you could add some classifications usually are meant for what to broaden your horizon to give you more insight into the subject. But classifications are not PP, they're not traceable to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you don't have to religiously believe in classifications. The classifications of the scholars, they're just meant to facilitate the understanding of the subject for us. So imagine Pamela Todd says in,

00:07:35 --> 00:07:41

in modality satechi in which is the commentary of Mr. Malhotra is man as sad in

00:07:42 --> 00:07:50

malata. He says what are the 10 different types of types of life he mentioned, the first type of life is the life of curse.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:59

Let the ends of the minister Malema and family a bit about the multi high in the theoretical liberal minions mode. This isn't sort of

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

well loved ones at the Minnesota EMA and well loved ones at the Minnesota email. In fact, a lot about the Nokia in the Vatican II attended me has now

00:08:10 --> 00:08:21

brought down from the heavens water with which he gave life to the earth after its death very early there is a sign and this for people who have hearing

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

loss and determinism and

00:08:26 --> 00:08:40

so he described this, you know he described this phenomenon to be you know life. You know after this life of the earth after this when Allah brings down water from the heavens.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:43

He gives life to the earth after this we'll learn

00:08:44 --> 00:08:48

a lot about the meteor and sort of settled

00:08:49 --> 00:08:50

on it and

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

I can say the answer not a robot.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

In our acquisition, Paddy

00:08:58 --> 00:09:27

naka de la casa and it is one of the signs that you see the land still later and then they had matters that were a bit so we once we bring down water onto it. It quivers and it increases grows in a lovely motor, very The one who gave it life he see how life is using the life of the earth given life to the earth after it was that to tell us that he is capable of giving life to the dead as well.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:41

resurrection and Olivia here in moto verily The one who gave it life will give life to the dead in our equation for the E is all capable over all things. And

00:09:43 --> 00:09:59

so to see novanet inaudible Mater to a hanaa haben familia Kuru and it is one of his signs or one of his signs is the dead land. Here in an automated land. Hey now we give it life.

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

Ratan Amina have been familiar with our Guru and when we brought forth grains, for their sustenance for their nutrition, their sustenance, the, from which they eat.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:21

All of these are basically different I have to talk about the life of the earth after it was dead. So that's why Allah

00:10:23 --> 00:10:26

talks about the life of the earth, but is the life of the Earth

00:10:27 --> 00:10:27

is a

00:10:29 --> 00:10:30

Korean life.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:38

If Allah said it is that it is so.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:45

But what does that mean? It means that potency to host life.

00:10:46 --> 00:11:01

It means the potency to host life. Allah call that life because it has the potency to host life. So once water comes down to the earth, it becomes a life meaning it has the potency to host life.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:24

That's why they're the dimension of time and have been familiar grown, and then we bring forth grains from which they eat. So that's the first step of life, the life of the earth and IoT and metadata, events and knowledge matters. In India, hello, Mohit Mota in relation to the

00:11:26 --> 00:11:30

EMA and for heavy duty high in the vertical economy as well.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:41

When added automated for half an hour, have been familiar Kudo. So the life of the earth basically is the potency to host life.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:45

We do call the tree life because a local that life so we call it life.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:52

And then the second type of life that he mentioned is

00:11:53 --> 00:12:22

which life would you expect next? The vegetative life that's happening the mobile whatever it is that happened the mobile whatever it is that it's the plant life or the vegetative life. The mobile means growth. Does that mean nutrition, where you're like you are dependent on nutrition and you grow with nutrition? So the more what after that it's the vegetative life and that is the plant life.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

And then the third life would be

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

what is the third life?

00:12:34 --> 00:12:42

It's it's the animate life, the sentient life, sentient meaning sensation, feeling that you are capable of feeling?

00:12:43 --> 00:12:44

Personal perceiving

00:12:45 --> 00:13:38

feelings. So sentient life is sentient and locomotive, meaning there's sentience and locomotion, you are moving and capable of perceiving feelings. So essentially, locomotive life is third life. And that's basically our lives as human beings. Our basic life as human beings is this law on you know, it's down there. And he gives this category which is the third category of life to every animator, being every animate being all animals, you know, mosquitoes share with us this life. So, we snakes, mosquitoes, lions, mice,

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

every atom of being

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

in fact,

00:13:45 --> 00:14:07

certainly I told you that this is the classifications are not traceable to the professor cylinder. It's not part of their religion to believe in classification, or, or the school classifications, the classifications of starters, not traceable to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So you could, you could certainly say that this is not one layer, he could divide it into different layers.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:36

But taima law says that within this one layer, there is huge stuff out there is a huge discrepancy between, you know, the life of mosquitoes, the life of, you know, animals, higher animals and life of human beings. You could also say that bacteria, for instance, and viruses are viruses alive. You know, they're more live than prions, prions you know, mad cow disease.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:41

mad cow disease used to be used to

00:14:42 --> 00:14:45

feed the feed the cows.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:53

Basically, the dead flesh of other cows died. Because, you know,

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

based on sort of capitalism, you just don't waste anything you use.

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


00:15:02 --> 00:15:29

to maximize your profit. So when cows died, they basically incinerated them. And they felt that this would be enough to get all bacteria and viruses. And then later they discovered that prions, which are less alive than viruses, you know, viruses are harder to kill, because they are not as alive as bacteria.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:48

prions are even less alive than viruses. So they were not through this incineration process, they were actually not destroyed, and they survived. And then they were transmitted to the other cows that ate the dead flesh or carcasses of

00:15:49 --> 00:16:05

their friends. And then we have no mad cow disease problem, and they stopped that particular ugly habit. We know that we have something in Islam called the jalala, which is the animal that is fed, not just for impurities.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

Anyway, so.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:25

So there could be different layers of life within this sentient Lokomotiv life. But we just consider it one layer for simplicity. It's the third layer, we belong here, not our spiritual lives.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:36

But basically our physical, physiological biological, at the biological level, we belong in this layer third, with mosquitoes and mice and everything.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:51

And then, then there is the fourth life. And the forest life is the creatures like the angels who do not have bodies, so they don't have the flaws of the bodies. They don't have, they're not flawed.

00:16:52 --> 00:17:01

You know, many of our difficulties and troubles in this life are caused by our bodies, our

00:17:03 --> 00:17:10

deficiencies, our flaws or shortcomings are caused by the lives of our by our bodies.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:21

And then these particular creatures, the angels, they don't have bodies, they don't suffer from those flaws.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:31

So he considers their their life to be you know, higher than ours, for sure, because they are body these creatures.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:38

So they don't have the defects of bodies that we have flaws and shortcomings of bodies that we have.

00:17:40 --> 00:18:09

And then number five, is what the Shakira talks about in the first level of Lula hair to the enemy Mota. selasa to infest the first life is coming to life by knowledge from the depths of ignorance, it is the light come into life, through whereby knowledge from the depth of ignorance, and that's the first

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

that's the first layer, but the chef talks about because he is not interested in, you know, other forms of life, the biological forms of life.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:29

So it is the fifth level in our 10 tiered classification of life.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:56

So, what's the sixth one, the sixth one is higher to the right on him, it is the hierarchy of resolve and aspiration higher of resolve and aspiration. It's not only enough that you have knowledge, but do you have resolve determination? Do you have aspiration? Do you have him? Do you have Iran? Do you have willpower to do what is right?

00:18:58 --> 00:19:01

That's a different type of life. And

00:19:03 --> 00:19:08

you want the basically to harness this life inside you

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

by so many things with which you can harness this life inside you. But these things is that kazoo,

00:19:20 --> 00:19:24

Barak said that it needs to probe aka do

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

otaku behavior to probe your highroad NFC casiano

00:19:31 --> 00:19:51

basically is the new would be the fat would be the diseases that would bring about the destruction of bring about this to our willpower to our resolve to our determination. Why are we weaker? Why are we less capable than the righteous predecessors?

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

Because to a great extent because of our our desires, our biases are the new that makes

00:20:00 --> 00:20:09

This weaker it is the number two meter globe I have seen that the newer sins, bring death to the hearts, what are the results

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

and being addicted to them

00:20:14 --> 00:20:18

is a cause of disgrace or brings about this great disgrace and humidity.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:22

What are Kusanagi Hayato kulu

00:20:23 --> 00:20:45

hyrulean Fc casiano. And the abandonment of sin is the cause of the life of the hearts. And it is better for yourself, to disobey yourself. It's better for you to disobey yourself for yourself highroller nuptse calici Anima it's better for yourself that you disobey yourself.

00:20:47 --> 00:21:25

And then he talks about the the other type of life which is the seventh type of life and he talks about the more life the moral life. And he means by this and you could say that this may be a little bit redundant here because you know, we're talking about coming to life coming to the life of knowledge from the darkness of ignorance isn't enough, doesn't it include also the life of determination, you know, that life of irata and him determination, resolve and aspiration. And does it also include that more life, he could say that, but he could also say that he wanted to emphasize

00:21:27 --> 00:21:35

certain concepts. One of them is that each one of those morals or manners

00:21:36 --> 00:21:49

is a life in and of itself, it adds to your life, you are more alive, when you acquire those virtues, morals or moral virtue.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:57

So courage by itself is more that adds to your life you are more alive,

00:21:58 --> 00:22:10

alive, if you are courageous, higher modesty is in is a life in and of itself. And as your life you are more alive, if you are modest,

00:22:12 --> 00:22:25

you know, humbleness, generosity, everything, all of those motors, chastity, all of those morals, the add different dimensions to your life. So you have more life, you are more alive,

00:22:27 --> 00:22:34

the more you acquire of those great morals, that's the moral life, each one of them is a life in and of itself.

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

And then

00:22:38 --> 00:22:49

he talks about the spiritual life which which is the life that shift. Now, this life, you're basically drawing from the source of life, this is

00:22:51 --> 00:22:57

the eighth type of life here. It is your spiritual life

00:23:00 --> 00:23:09

spiritual. So after the more light, he talks about spiritual life, and that is basically when you lose yourself to you know,

00:23:10 --> 00:23:31

it would be to the sheer fear phase after, after you have completely and certainly we agree with that, that many, many aspects of finance must be realized must be actual lies prior to having this life. So many aspects of losing yourself losing your ego to have

00:23:32 --> 00:23:36

Hayato Eva namita sorry, Han Solo moment.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:43

Yeah, I'm close. With I'm currently spiritual life.

00:23:46 --> 00:24:17

Just to give it like, some distinction from because time codes categorical soror basically happiness and rejoicing. But he means by this the spiritual life that you will have after you lose your ego after you lose yourself. And like we said, the front of the funnel is not a necessary bridge to the powers of subsistence. But certainly many elements of finance aren't necessary for the process of subsistence,

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

as we said so many times before, but this is the time when you are basically

00:24:26 --> 00:24:30

your life is dependent on the source

00:24:33 --> 00:24:36

whereas the portable they have enough and have to have

00:24:37 --> 00:24:51

Babel to hook into somehow hilarious maveo masala the observed behavior be the way it should be. We have originally hola TMC via Bella in salani Latina what any style vanilla or even

00:24:52 --> 00:25:00

so, this is the life where I you know, my one my servant would continue to draw closer to me until I love him and

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

Once I have loved him or once I love him I would be his hearing with which he hears his sight with which he sees his hands with which he strikes in his leg with which he walks. And if he asks me

00:25:12 --> 00:25:46

or if he invokes me, I will grant him his wishes and if he seeks refuge in me, I will grant him protection, I will grant him protection. So, that type of life is basically handed because it is basically subsisting by Allah it is basically after you have lost here, so, and you found a lot higher to do Jude, which is the procurement the actualization and the finding of Allah subhanaw taala by losing yourself remember very early we said

00:25:47 --> 00:26:05

that we as either Swami Rama, Allah tala said, I have seen a lion at dream and I asked him, How do I come to you, he said, You will never be able to reach me until you lose yourself. And then I strapped myself my ego off like a snake strips off her skin or

00:26:08 --> 00:26:14

so this is this, this is the life this is the ultimate life in this world.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:29

It's the life of because of subsistence after losing oneself. And this is the life that basically draws from the life of the source, the life allowing a low and high yield,

00:26:30 --> 00:26:45

center to one no holla However, there is no deity but him and hydrocodone be alive, the living room, the self subsistent. So truly, their real life is a loss.

00:26:47 --> 00:27:16

All of our lives are contingent, dependent, unnecessary, disposable, that real life is a loss of life. Therefore, any life short of this life is not the real life. And in this eight phase, the claim mentions in my data set a key IE this this is your life of subsistence by Allah for Allah with Allah, by Allah for Allah, with Allah.

00:27:18 --> 00:27:21

So this is the eighth level of life.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:32

spiritual life, what no luck was headed for a hospital rejoicing, and happiness.

00:27:34 --> 00:28:09

And then the ninth type of life and then we will keep in mind that we're not talking about we're talking about the 10 types of life that are not the life of the Divine, that are not the divine life. Because when it comes to divine life, you can't have this as a layer that you can you have this as a layer, you say that type of life is the divine life, but it's not layered, because it does not have that type whatsoever. There is no comparison, no comparability between a laws, life and our lives. Our lives are like I said,

00:28:11 --> 00:28:15

What, contingent, not necessary,

00:28:16 --> 00:28:16

not well.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:49

And disposable. So then, Allah talks about the next level of life and the ninth level of life which is not attained in this world, because that's when you lose your body, that is the life in the body, that is in the life in the life after this and before the hereafter that is in that phase between this life and so he actually calls in mouth, he actually consider his mouth which is this

00:28:50 --> 00:28:55

higher level of life and he justifies this

00:28:58 --> 00:29:08

you know, the public real agenda from the grave is like, a garden of the gardens of Paradise or a hole of the holes of hellfire.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:18

You know, last season sort of threw up, man can Eminem, Rihanna, genitourinary, you know?

00:29:24 --> 00:29:33

Puma like a lot of zero and followed by Rama Dini and 3009 Quantum Sati interlaminar makara v in front of Nora, hang on, I

00:29:34 --> 00:29:40

was talking I was talking about the soul leaving the body.

00:29:42 --> 00:29:59

And he said that once it reaches the throat, bring it back if you are, he challenged them, bring it back if you are not to be held accountable in quantum AI or Medina and if you are not to be brought back and to be held accountable, keep it bring it back. Keep

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

souls are bringing it back.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:10

And then Allah said family in Canada and macabre been then he talked about the different souls family in Canada mcrobbie. And if he is

00:30:14 --> 00:30:15

in Canada, he is

00:30:18 --> 00:30:33

if he is one of the Caribbean, which are the ones who are brought in the air, it means in the air, but it's not very, it's much harder to begin, it's in the packet passive voice to tell you that, basically, you cannot.

00:30:40 --> 00:31:01

You can't you cannot make it on your own, you can come close, just by you wanting to come close, that you have to be brought closer to Allah subhanaw taala you have to be invited, you have to be brought closer, and that's why it's in the passive voice family in Canada Camilla makabe enough, he is one of those who were brought close or near near

00:31:02 --> 00:31:06

farrakhan what I hand agenda tonight. For

00:31:07 --> 00:31:20

then, for for them will be our which is relief. Rehan means here soothing comfort, or Jonathan, I am in a garden of bliss and a garden of bliss.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:35

So immediately, you know, you just once you leave this life immediately you get to enjoy a higher level of life. And that's what we why we Muslims think of why we Muslims should not have

00:31:36 --> 00:31:38

this much fear from death.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:47

Certainly, as I said, No one likes to die, but we should not have this. This much

00:31:48 --> 00:31:52

like an anxiety or fear. From this

00:31:54 --> 00:31:55

you know arrangements.

00:31:56 --> 00:32:00

wishing for death is not the highest station.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:27

wishing for death is not even permissible to wish for death because of difficulties that you encounter in life because of disease or poverty or difficulties you encounter of life. It's prohibited to wish for this because of difficulty because that shows your lack of rebel your lack of acceptance of a large decrease but wishing for death out of fear from fitna trials in your deen losing your dean losing faith is permissible.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:56

But the you know, the best of the best of the stations and stuff we'd in this regard in this respect, which is basically to defer this to just not much for that sort of life. Remember, we did mention before when Sophie Hannah 30 and use it from last month and wavenet while they were sitting together. So pianos nobody said they wish to I wish I would die before

00:32:59 --> 00:33:02

I get tried in my Dean.

00:33:03 --> 00:33:07

And he said I wish to live, you know,

00:33:08 --> 00:33:19

perhaps I'll be able to return and increase in my good deeds and then wipe another word and beat them both by saying a Bahama, La Habra, Houma

00:33:23 --> 00:33:24

an idea. So

00:33:26 --> 00:33:43

he said, What's more beloved to him is more is more beloved to me, I don't wish to live I don't wish to die. What is more beloved to him to God is more beloved to me. It's up to him. You know, I don't even want to

00:33:45 --> 00:34:00

have any, you know, I want to completely sort of surrender to His will, that I don't want, I want to have a wish of my own. If he would keep he wants to keep me, then I am happy, I'm content.

00:34:02 --> 00:34:14

And if he wants to take me back, I'll still be on content with that as well. So to not to be neutral about it. And as long as you're here, you're doing your best, you're ready, but you're doing your best as long as you're here

00:34:15 --> 00:34:20

for yourself, for your family community, for the world for humanity to just,

00:34:22 --> 00:34:24

and then not also,

00:34:25 --> 00:34:37

you know, many times we say to ourselves, well, you know, I don't belong to this age, or I don't belong to this era. I wish I were born in

00:34:38 --> 00:34:43

in the sort of seventh century or sixth century CERN for a second.

00:34:45 --> 00:34:58

But we need to delegate to Allah subhanaw taala is about being content with his choices. Well, he wanted you to come now. He wanted you to live in this era.

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

sort of leave is to be completely content with all of his choices

00:35:07 --> 00:35:08

including that

00:35:10 --> 00:35:11


00:35:12 --> 00:35:13


00:35:14 --> 00:35:26

but the this idea of death not being the end that's being a phase because idea that our righteous predecessors comprehended very well

00:35:29 --> 00:35:59

and then they would not be particularly afraid sometimes they do welcome it and we did say what what is best but so it like, you know the poet's just alone and motor hire unfeigned who about Robin, I mean, clearly barring otaku you hardly saw your audio to listen to seminar. We wouldn't even have to shuffle the loved one and motor higher and now, about Raveena encoded in Cali Barrino Alto, you are listening fusina

00:36:02 --> 00:36:07

kwietnia daddy Lottie Ashraful Swami allottee worried the death on our behalf.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:20

Who for it is about Robin I'm in collaboration well tofu is gentler is kinder to us and then the kindest and the most gentle

00:36:22 --> 00:36:23

of people

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

who see me that

00:36:27 --> 00:36:29

he brings closer

00:36:30 --> 00:36:47

relief from from all harm. We would need a durability here Ashraful and brings us closer to the Abode that is nobler than nobler abode or the more honorable abode, which is

00:36:48 --> 00:36:55

the 10th layer of life that is the life in the Hereafter, as Allah

00:36:56 --> 00:37:01

says in Surah Blanca would have to dunia l Allah what I what

00:37:03 --> 00:37:06

the * hi Joanne, how can we

00:37:07 --> 00:37:11

help to dounia illallah Who would I bow in Daraa

00:37:12 --> 00:37:13


00:37:14 --> 00:37:42

and the life of this world is nothing but amusement and play. We're in a data era but the Hereafter, the higher power at higher end. The higher end is a superlative, from higher, to superlative from higher it which means here, good meaning are different things according to the commentators and facility to mean eternal, mean real could mean all blessed. But it just means it. It is the real life.

00:37:44 --> 00:37:54

Because it's an eternal life. And any life that's temporary. Any life where you see changes in your body every day, while you're growing, you'll start to notice this once you hit 40

00:37:56 --> 00:38:15

is not really the real life. You know life is being taken away from you from the time you're born. You have like you know, 70% of your body water doesn't last minute and I say Water is life. Water is the source of life. Let me give you a couple of minutes and it a lot of the Canada, modern America say in high

00:38:17 --> 00:38:35

Milan. And we made of though didn't disbelievers. And sort of Gandhi Allah says I didn't the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were one mass and we split them up and then we made of water everything that is living, made of water, everything that is living

00:38:37 --> 00:38:41

don't they believe what they not believe?

00:38:43 --> 00:38:53

So what is the source of life and when you're born you have like 70% of your body is made out of water and when you die it's about 50% particularly if you die senile.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:01

And this this happens basically from day one life is being taken away from you from the time you come out.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:07

The moment you come out life is being taken away from water you're losing water

00:39:08 --> 00:39:14

Don't you know that like mothers know that the newborns they lose weight initially.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:30

So this is metaphorical, but for using life but it is losing using life you actually dry out just like Alan said, and you know sort of heavy talamona Manhattan vanilla

00:39:32 --> 00:39:37

for them while you're already connected device and other confounding variables are made up for some a

00:39:39 --> 00:39:47

little known for terminology or at one on how to linear limitado So know that the life of this world is about plant amusement.

00:39:51 --> 00:39:53

adornment and glitters and

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

mutual boasting. Seeking abundance and

00:40:00 --> 00:40:13

offspring and property and wealth. But then Allah subhanaw taala gave the our lives that parable came after the knights and out of a Confederate battle like array in the visitation there was pleases

00:40:15 --> 00:40:27

visitation that comes there with are there from pleases the kuffar pleases what the farmers here confirmed means the farmers here pleases the farmers, because it's green and

00:40:30 --> 00:40:31

pleasant, you know.

00:40:33 --> 00:40:39

And then for me to pay for and then the, the drought and that's what we exactly go through, we dry out.

00:40:41 --> 00:40:43

So microclimate crumbles away,

00:40:44 --> 00:40:46

the vegetation would crumble away.

00:40:47 --> 00:40:50

That's exactly what we go through, and we also crumble away.

00:40:53 --> 00:40:55

So then, this so

00:40:57 --> 00:40:59

then Allah subhanaw taala in the booth says we're in

00:41:01 --> 00:41:14

luck, and we are the moon only if they know and the life of the Hereafter is the true life is very life on the if they know. So these are the 10 different types of life

00:41:15 --> 00:41:15


00:41:18 --> 00:41:23

Allah mentions in the modalities, let's go back to what the text says here

00:41:25 --> 00:41:43

and head over here to the enemy multigene what I have to address, the first life is coming to life by knowledge from the depths of ignorance, and it has Libras so certainly breathing is a sign of life. And he considers these Libras to be the signs of

00:41:45 --> 00:42:01

that first life that the first level that she talks about here, which is of knowledge to be delivered from the depths of ignorance into the light of knowledge.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:44

Whatever as fast as the breaths nefesh will help you when officers have the breaths of fear, the breath of hope and the breath of love. What higher to 70 or higher to gentlemen multitrack recorder has grown fast and fast, and certainly had. The Chihuahuas keeps the first level for knowledge right, for proper knowledge for good beneficial knowledge. The first level is for good beneficial knowledge and the effects of the good beneficial knowledge and the sign the signs that your knowledge has benefited you is that you have this blessing, the blessing triad of

00:42:48 --> 00:43:06

the blessing of love, fear and hope, you fear from a loss anger you wish in our you hope in laws of the word and above all, you are in love with him. So hello Todd

00:43:07 --> 00:43:48

then he talks about the highest Ania how to gentleman multitrack recorder has allotted one first. The second level is coming to life through Gemma that's the Union as the together and as with the loss of the Union here is not the union of the third phase that he usually talks about, because he keeps this for the third phase. The Union here is your home lism your homeless your togetherness, your fractured will, you are together he like you have one goal you have one focus you have an unfractionated will and that is that what he means here by union, it is your togetherness and your

00:43:50 --> 00:44:03

unfractionated will seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And basically on the non this undistracted focus your focus is all together. So, that is

00:44:05 --> 00:44:15

in this phase that is the phase where he usually talks about alcohol or the inner states. So that is the JAMA of your inner state your art collected you are together

00:44:17 --> 00:44:31

focused on your ultimate goal man melted Africa, it is the life of togetherness Jama or union. From the depths of the spiritual dispersion is when you have fractured will

00:44:32 --> 00:44:40

when you have distractions when you are distracted by the diversity of phenomena around you.

00:44:41 --> 00:44:47

When I have selected one facet, it has three breaths nothing so that there are one episode of tikar one episode

00:44:50 --> 00:44:55

at breath, the breath of dependence the breath of need and the breath of pride.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

And because we spent so much time talking about the thin layers

00:45:00 --> 00:45:00

of life.

00:45:01 --> 00:45:08

That claim mentions in medallions we'll have to inshallah go a little bit quicker here. But these are

00:45:10 --> 00:45:26

the emphasis here is on the inner state and in the inner state, he talks about the breath of dependence and the breath of need, time considers them to be one breath, for, you know, has a beginning and an end. But it is basically

00:45:29 --> 00:45:31


00:45:32 --> 00:45:48

key a contrast to this was a breath of the car which is not as lifted the breath of pride, he's saying to you, that without Allah inferior vulnerability or destitute ness, your poverty, your weakness, your fragility,

00:45:49 --> 00:45:50


00:45:51 --> 00:45:52

your need,

00:45:54 --> 00:46:09

and with Allah, you are feeding. So, this is talking about the same level we are feeding everything in the same level here. And with Allah, you have the breath, pride, joy, comfort, confidence,

00:46:11 --> 00:46:40

combined in one combined in one state with one hand and one Interstate, like with him without him and it is not only with him, it is with him, by him, with him by him with a lot by Allah, you have enough us lift the car, which is not certainly the Office of arrogance or self conceit or anything but it is enough as the breath of rejoicing in your servitude in your abode a

00:46:41 --> 00:47:32

rejoicing in your acceptance in your brother of Allah decree decrees and your confidence, you know, in his future decrease that will take away anxiety from your heart. So, it is the same numbers dependence and lead with without a law and with and by Allah, it is not a sort of the heart or the breath of pride. And then he says what higher status or higher to dude with a hat on but hakkoda has allotted to infest the third life is the life of actualization, we do this procurement it is when you gain you earn you find what it means to find. So, when you find the law, and that is as I said, I mentioned this in which level

00:47:33 --> 00:47:50

eighth, the higher of Baka after you cross the bridge of phenol or losing yourself and we did talk about what how we do this. So the higher that equals had for a hospital to have rejoicing and happiness.

00:47:52 --> 00:48:06

So this is how do you find the law you only find them after you lose yourself. So but but we did explain what losing yourself means here so many times.

00:48:07 --> 00:48:09

So let's not repeat that.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:15

You have lost your ego and you have lost all of the negative.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:21

The negative components of that ego

00:48:24 --> 00:48:47

so Hi on behalf of the life of actualization that's when you actualize your faith. The reason why translate with Judah's actualization is that it is basically the closest word in English it's complete actualization of faith, it is when you find the law, if you want to literally translate it, you will translate that procurement more will do it will be finding

00:48:48 --> 00:49:11

realization, finding procurement, but it is the ultimate actualization of phase third, third life is the life of actualization to do it way higher than that. And it is a life subsisting by the real or the true one. And how could the real or the true one whether

00:49:12 --> 00:49:22

it has Libras nephesh Ava, and now it is all about the last part. So now when you know sort of the lights of His Majesty,

00:49:24 --> 00:49:50

the before you or the light of His Majesty, come on to you. Then the first NFS for sure. majesty and glory. The first NFS for sure the first breath is the breath of our which slays all flaws slays all of your flaws it kills all of your this sort of ends the diseases lazier flaws

00:49:51 --> 00:49:59

while you'll meet to the to that episode haibo emitted the breadth of our which slays all flaws when episode will do well I am now

00:50:00 --> 00:50:07

facade, the breath of actualization and we talked about dude procurement. When you find the law after losing yourself

00:50:08 --> 00:50:18

with a facade we'll do the breadth of actualization. Well, I am not in facade which prevents all detachment. So, never will you be distracted, never will you be detached.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:25

one episode in Toronto facade, the breath of singularity,

00:50:28 --> 00:50:41

irritated facade which causes the attachment facade, which causes the attachment that is when you recognize the one this the one true floor

00:50:43 --> 00:50:54

or the one to one or the true one, the only true one for real when I saw valleca, Manhattan avara Takata, Alicia

00:50:55 --> 00:50:56

Madhava, Lin

00:50:57 --> 00:51:03

katan delicia there is nothing beyond this that can be perceived

00:51:04 --> 00:51:07

Madhouse Tara has to perceive

00:51:08 --> 00:51:19

there is nothing beyond this that can be perceived by the data could be the spectators but could also be the thinkers, spectators or thinkers, not how they

00:51:23 --> 00:51:37

talk to literature or pointed out by illusions. So, there is nothing beyond this that can be perceived by the spectators or pointed out by illusions, illusions, signals, you know,

00:51:39 --> 00:51:46

gestures, there is nothing that can basically point this out, because what the article in the knowers

00:51:49 --> 00:52:37

experience cannot be described. Because in order for you to describe anything, it has to be within the human categories of understanding why, because that is what language is about. Isn't language about describing our own categories are under saying isn't language limited to our categories of understanding and if they experience something beyond our categories of understanding can be expressive. Now, that is why they always talk about you know, genre, the sensation of all illusions, gestures, there is nothing that can express what they experience. May Allah Spano Tata

00:52:41 --> 00:52:44

give us at least on the Day of Judgment

00:52:46 --> 00:52:47


00:52:48 --> 00:52:49

should learn stuff
