I'm about to proceed.
So today until now, we will have station 86
chapter the chapter on a bust or expansion. And in fact, we will talk about we will finish what we started last time. We were talking about Willie, and part of the discussion of it well, he or the guardian or guardian said, is the discussion of
compatibility. in marriage, we will try to finish that and we will also talk about unmanageable
women or you could also say unmanageable men,
which are permitted to be married.
But is not only in Manhattan,
which are the unmanageable kin. But that's harder math in general forbidden to be married, including Muharram. Han marriageable kin.
So, let's start with Mohammed busts or
menzingers busts or expansion to share online Mm hmm. How are we in his book man, as it is serene, said under the chapter of the bus, Palazzo della confy. Allah Almighty said he multiplies you thereby.
And this isn't sort of short and this is about
the multiplication or the expansion of provisions and offspring and the CIF use where the US uses subtleties
and hints, gestures. So this is about the multiplication or expansion of offspring and provisions. But Allah subhanaw taala also expands
expands us spiritually, not only physically or not only in the sense of property and provisions
then the sex
combust to annuity law that rbtv modality was built out about any reader and after SOS tell bees when bossy to female boss their honey said it man in liquid Lima Hanako.
So Albus when you're to see law, but the female director expansion is when he accords the exterior of the servant with the indications of knowledge. Well, it has been all about any sauce and dresses their interior with a garment of devotion.
Tell bees These are the people of disguise.
In Bushido from FEMA, Daniel basilea harissa karate man,
they have been expanded in the realm of expansion for one of three purposes, equal amount. For each purpose, our group is dedicated.
She is talking about the Boston in Boston is the opposite of a pub pub towards construction or contraction construction is what we use.
it means that stress and discomfort and so on, and
it means also a version like multiple Donadoni, and you have to allow you to have this aversion to adonia or towards adonia. busters expansion. Can we said last time that in the slang they use these words, by sort of trickle down effect they they have picked up those words and they say mcbadden, mob suit
or wooden mob suit.
And the mob suits would mean expand that when they use it in the slang the meanwhile happy. I'm happy I'm up so that means expand that it means the law had expanded your chest
shot. He opened up your chest he expanded your chest.
He gave you that sort of feeling of ease and comfort.
For forbearance, tolerance,
agree ability. It's our meanings that we will discuss
So your son, so I had that ob, the female manager, and when he accords, the exterior of the servant with the indication of knowledge,
which is important that,
you know, you compliance with indications of knowledge, conduct compliance with the requirements of knowledge.
And rest is the interior with a garment of devotion, and dresses their interior with a garment of devotion, because, as we said, so many times that Allah Adam and it had are not mutually inclusive.
But at the same time, they are certainly not mutually exclusive.
In fact, they are symbiotic, synergistic, they corroborate each other, they invoke, you know, alignment books that hadn't had any books and
they summon each other. So
that's what the chief is saying here that he has items on hand. And he's compliant with the indications of knowledge, but he is his interior is that of devotion.
These, these are the people of the skies and the ship always mentioned the word, the skies
to mean that they these people are
and we can always have like a demystified reading. And if you have a if you have a
good reading, text,
just don't critique the text, just use the good reading.
We can always have a demystified reading of this text. And this guy's Okay, you know, the good reading of this bs the people of this guy's is, is that they are just like the rest of the people in customs habits. But they are very unlike them in hand, and their interior state, in their advocates in their manners. They are very unlike them. So they could confuse the people a little bit because they look like them. They act like they're not pretentious, they're real, they're genuine. They're not putting on an act, they're just acting normal. And at the same time, they are very different because their heart is different, and their hand will always manifest on their they have their enter
state will always manifest on their manners.
like when when they're really aggravated, they can really control themselves. That's not like the rest of the people.
Because the rest of the people they snap, they are courteous, as long as courtesy is working for or courtesy is healthy, you know is you know, if it is an act, then they're, they're not they are trying to put on this act
for ulterior motives for other purposes. But these other people they are they are kind and courteous, naturally internally.
They are forbearing and tolerant internally. So you can't basically
although certainly they're they're not infallible, and they may also
sort of slip. But generally speaking, they're not only doing this for
inferior motives, but it's an internal state or condition that they're in anyway, that they are like they're so the people that eat like them, they dress like them, they act like
they're not pretentious, but they are internally different. And that would show on their manners and their salute in general.
And that's why they are called the people of disguise are the people after bees because they confuse the people about their state.
When I will see two female dental busted realities as a man and they have been expanded in the realm of expansion for one of three purposes. liquidity monitor HR for each purpose Our group is dedicated for that effect on both approximate and unhealthy you Barcelona home where you will be sooner home faster the owner binoria him or her car eco much more was Roma Sona
Then expanded as a mercy for the creation and you will find that the shape always uses creation
to basically not limit that these matters to Muslims
or even to humans, it is the creation. So you have the the
you have these manners of kindness, kindness, graciousness, etc. Even courtesy with the creation
you know like in the chapters are harder, you can't use parts of an animal to clean yourself because that's disrespectful. So you can like have a cow next to you when you are
relieving yourself and just clean yourself with the tail of the cow because that is disrespectful to the cow.
So the use of the word creation is not just incidental It is intended.
He means to use Fatah effect when
a group has been expanded as a mercy for the creation
you bossy tuna home while you will be soon at home.
They are pleasant towards them. That's mobile SATA. They exchange nice fees, they are pleasant, mobile soccer, they are sort of easy go in a
bit different and are easily befriend
your boss it won't be sooner the owner be naughty him. So so that they may
creation, they may find illumination in their light, the light of those distinguished ones, what how much more while their realities are collected and how much more realities are to be collected or together with Sri Rama Sona and the inner secrets are protected.
Meaning that they're mixing with the people did not cause them dispersion or distraction. They're still collected. They're still focused, they're not distracted, they're mixing with the people is still part of the plan. They fit this into basically the long term plan, you know, seeking God.
So it never distracts them.
And they never meander in the valleys of dispersion, how they get
there, they are still on they're very straight paths. And they are reaching out to the people and they're trying to be kind to the people.
without following the people meandering behind them into the valleys of dispersion doesn't happen to them. They're instead collected their self together him is collected intentions there that resolve violations are collected.
ultimate goal is still in focus.
This particular group that has been expanded as a mercy for the creation and they are pleasant, and they mix with
a profit source and there is actually a genre of Hadith about this.
One had eaten debris that's corroborated by many other hobbies.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in this hadith in Habakkuk la Hasina Kumar klapa own act naffaa Allah Vina Allah funa food in Malaya una Vina nice even
more for a poner Vina the hyper Alamo, Tommy Sunil Ilana. So, in hubback Amelia, the most beloved to me among you are
the best and manners and more owner,
moto napnap and with mean
humble and easygoing, with me and humble and easygoing.
Lavina the phone over the phone those who befriend and are easily befriend
La Jolla and the most hated of you, to me among you or have you to me are when I've been a nurse even Amina those who spread gossips between people and
those who seek to separate between the ones that love the ones who love each other, not necessarily that type of love, but all kinds of love, you know, not so
high but the ones who seek to separate between
People love each other
while moving to another planet, and the ones who seek to be full, the innocent and hardship. They're just, you know, these are two groups of people that are quite distinct from each other.
And, you know, some people can straddle the two groups, you do want to be in the first group all the time, but some people can sort of move around
and sometimes are like this, sometimes they're like that, and there are people who are dedicated to the second group.
Those would be the worst for sure.
But it is important that you know, we talked about the quality of National Hospital as
well as in the previous
stage. The believer who mixes with people and tolerates or puts up with their harm is better than the believer that does not mix with the people and does not put up with their harm. So anyway, but these are these concepts are extremely important to know about Sapa to be easygoing to be humble to be genuine to be real with the people
are these are extremely important concepts. And part of this also is agree ability
and bust expand expansion of the chest.
Part of this is also agree ability and there is like
a whole nother call that a bit more
than one factor, which is the etiquette of agri ability is extremely important because you cannot really be
rock metal. You cannot be friends and be easily befriended. Unless you are agreeable, and agreeable means work, that you seek to agree with the people like you really deep inside, wish that you can agree with everyone on everything. Certainly you can. But that is your intent, your intent is to agree. Like if you hear a heartbeat, for instance, and you dislike something about that you could go to the club and tell them I agree with everything you said. But I have a question about this, or I seek clarification, or I have a comment versus someone who comes and says, I disagree. You know, you should start by saying I agree with everything you said. But I would like to see clarification about
this particular or these particular issues. Or I may have some thoughts to share a comment or something. So that's anyway the concept of agri ability is a very important concept as part of this
general etiquette and
have mobile SATA and hold good hold
checks. So you want to own a home where they'll be soon at home, they're pleasant towards them exchange exchange niceties with and mix with, so that they may find illumination in their light. This or that the regular people that are in sort of the masses of the public, they find the illumination in their light
much more. Well, Sara aroma spoon, realities are collected and the inner secrets are protected. So those people were once like the laws of Montana have expanded their chest laws
have made them a mercy for his creation. Those are the joy of this life. Those are the joy of this life. They have immense resources, psychological resources, they have immense emotional resources.
Not everybody but certainly people have different rankings even among diverse group people have different rankings but these people have immense resources.
Someone could get like a phone call in the morning, you know from their doctor and they get told that you have stage four cancer and they would be intent on tearing up everybody.
Even after they hear the news that they would
they are concerned about how am I going to say this to my kids without the stress of causing them distress for instance, or
college Am I going to cheer up my spouse when I
it's not Europe necessarily but
give them comfort consoled them.
etc, they have immense resources, immense psychological resources, they are
the joy of this life honestly. So once you come into their presence, you feel joyful and you feel hopeful.
Their energy field, people like to use those
terms. So once you walk into the energy field,
you, you feel, you feel joyful, you feel hopeful, optimistic, positive. And sometimes they feel energized immediately when you walk into their energy field. And other people, you walk into their energy field and just the roof collapses on your head,
in distress to feel uncomfortable, you feel like, sort of pessimistic, etc.
So you have to choose for yourself where you want to be, what you want to be what you want to make out of yourself.
These are two different groups of people, if you want to have if you want to be emergency for the creation, then
you know what you need to do? Certainly, that's a habit, lay him has given us the best examples, role models, and in every habit been every type of sudo.
I think the peak of this then
is the story of the very Pinnacle or peak of this is the story of Omar Suleiman, you know, the story of arm's length, most of you know the story of him Salaam, with Abu talha.
When he was traveling, and his son, their son died, their son died.
And he shortly he arrived, shortly thereafter, so he asked her about his son, and she said in the Superbowl party, a Muslim By the way, as reported, by the alarm, the alarm. So, so he, he asked her about his son, and he said to us can, she said who asked him,
he is the, sort of the calmest he's ever been, or he could ever be. And this can be sort of understood in different ways. She meant that he died.
And she wanted him to understand that he is well, because he asked about his son, because he was sick. When he left, came back asked about him, she said, is because he couldn't, he could have been, or he could ever be.
And then so she presented through to him like dinner, and he ate, and then they had conjugal relations and so on. And then she told them afterwards.
And certainly, he was upset, he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to complain about him.
And what he did,
and the profits are made for them, but
they let ikoma Allah bless that night. And the reporters say that their son that she conceived, and that son, Abdullah,
then had nine children, all of them were memorizers of the poor, and all of them are half of them. So but but certainly, you know, what could be more hair and what could be more painful than the loss of a child, particularly for a mother, even more than a father, but the fact that that see,
understood how, like,
it's concerning, like how stressful it could be just coming back from a long trip, being extremely tired, and so on. And just hearing the news, you know, to traveling through across the desert, and their times is different from even traveling instead of problem that you're traveling through the desert and their time was, like perilous and extremely tiring and exhausting. So she allowed them some time to sort of rest and so on. And then she told them of the news. So that I think this is a good
example of what those people do. Certainly not all of us can do this. Not all of us can be as this is. I think this is beyond this. You could try but at least you could.
You could try as much as you can
probably will not get there but you can try
Then the safe said what are
my energy him or in some manuscripts Look what money What
quality so I had
you need to know Judo
group has been expanded for the strength of their beholding and the steadiness of their visions for their insights are not scrambled by indicateurs or science and the winds of the forms do not attack their procurements. So they are expanded in the grip of top dollar construction. So what are important
to him What does mean him and already him, our group has been expanded for the strength, strength of their beholding and the steadiness of their visions. They are focused on the destination, they're focused on the see the lights of the city, the destination, and they're beholding
that they're beholding the realities be beyond the forms. And most importantly, they're beholden to read, to read and practice upon avatar, and that's their beholding of the eyes of their heart, they read and if you are beholding the read with the eyes of your heart, could could you be anything other than expanded, you know, other than lawsuit, if you are beholding very unhappy with sides of your heart, you will always have some sort of facade,
you will always have this comfort you always have this confidence stability, and you will have those immense psychological reserves. So
means the steadiness and steadiness of their visions.
Further insights led to call it you know, to college so I had my tutor home for their for their insights. That is, Massoud are not scrambled by indicateurs are not scrambled by indicateurs. That's showerhead. Because the show I had all the signposts they need you to the door, he leaves them in the front yard, you don't walk into His presence with them, you don't need them anymore.
Right. But you always that we never put down. So I had so I had are important to Las panatela established those signs on to him,
around us, in us around us, to lead us to lead us to him. But when you have when you when you ride your mount to the door of the king,
do you walk into His presence with your mouth, your mule, or donkey or horse or you just leave them in the front yard.
Once you have once you have reached the door and you walk in and you just leave the amount in the front yard and that's what he means by this inside in in his presence.
So I had are irrelevant of no use.
Which means what it means this evidential approach to face is then how to replace by the naturalist approach. You don't need evidence
to connect with him. You don't need evidence to believe in him. You don't need evidence to connect with him. You don't need science. You are in his heart in his presence.
Here beholding of him is not dependent is not contingent on so I had the indications the indicateurs the sign posts, you don't need them anymore he have left them in the front yard.
Okay, well I thought we would
do the home a lot of Sumo do the room and the wins of the forms forms or images it is basically phenomena and forms
contingent beings and phenomena contingent beings and transient phenomena. These are all forms
of Sumo do their own and the winds of the forms do not attack their procurements. Here they're procurements that's module, the findings. The faith that you find the interstates that you reach in the face that you find in your heart.
Those are the your your finds.
Spiritual procurements that were added that
the spiritual imports, they
assumed means what the winds of the images are forms and the forms are what those things are the transient phenomena and contingent
beings, they are called forms, because they hide the meanings behind them the purpose to tell us
the purpose to tell us behind them, and they can cause destruction and confounding for the people who are focused on the forms that he could keep on
studying, you know, the elements of life, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, right? Are those four elements, and they're, you know, stay or you study. These are the elements of living creatures. They're not the elements of life, they consider them to be the elements of life, we consider them to be the elements of living bodies, but not life itself.
But then you just keep on sort of studying these things, and how did they come about, or study the universe. And you keep on saying, well, hydrogen, when there was an explosion in the stars, extreme temperature, and gravitational sort of force, created the idiom of night hydrogen, and then create,
but all of this, and you know, you're unable to see beyond this,
did any of this who did all of this, you're obstructed.
So, sometimes people, the smartest people, the, you know, the smartest physicists or biologists or they keep on following all of those things, the contingent beings transient phenomena, and they are obstructed from the tellers and from the first cause, and the final cause, which is loss of time.
Anyway, but also for the regular people, for the average people, they are distracted by the route, the mundane routine, their daily lives and their work and their career and their different pursuits. They are distracted by all of this, these are very soon for them. They are distracted by those forms.
From the focus on
the what should have been their their ultimate goal or pursuit, farm apps.
But those people that we're talking about now,
Sumo do the home.
The wins of the forums, they're not attack they're procurements they do adjust they do adapt to different conditions, because at different times different things are demanded of you by the divine soprano, tada, but in all of their various conditions, their goal is the same and their focus is unfragmented
format. So turn off your
phone form of Satoshi cup.
So they are expanded in the grip of the in the grip of construction, which means what
it is when you are constructed from the donia you have this aversion to that you are constructed from the donia constricted towards what towards Allah, Allah does not want to share you with adonia does not want to share you with the people of the dunya. So he constricts you, He gives you this internal discomfort towards the donia aversion. You know, that's
not good to him, you know from the dernier
and we're talking about the very opposite now we're talking about the station of a bust. You are expanded
to be a mercy for the creation but he's telling you here and this is extremely important that you can
be in both stations. To be a resident of both stations, both stations simultaneously, could straddle the two stations.
These people have busted have not lost any of the benefits of cub have lost have not lost any of the meanings of the rst lock booth in their bus. They are still in their bus.
Which means that the two they are
when they are
They do this for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Again it is about their focus, the focus is not fragmented, their focus is all on the object of their worship which is their Lord, which is a loss
of soul to come to they are expanded in the grip of the can straddle stations that are seemingly conflicting.
Do you remember what the prophet was dead when Abraham died and he wept,
he you know, so, I am sad that this the the station of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is higher than the station of anyone who would have not wept like Abdullah Omar for instance, who laughed or showed pleasure when his son died to show accepted because of the love Norma could not manage to straddle the two stations simultaneously, that have compassion and that acceptance, but the Prophet was seamlessly effortlessly, you know, to weep does not
does not detract from your acceptance does not take away from your acceptance. It shows your compassion without taking away from your acceptance
and he said what an acquittal in la mejor de la pena todo en la mirada buena we don't say anything other than what is pleasing to our Lord
You know, so acceptance and capacity. So to be MK bold and massud simultaneously is very possible for the secrets of the past and it is actually a sign a sign of the establishment in the stations, you're not established in these stations and till you are able to combine between them. Sometimes we go through
you know conditions that make us move from one station to one station, happy to turn them have the Hitman as it was aha or to
fulfill and complete and perfect these stations the alarm moves you allow moves from one station to one station not only so that you could fulfill the stations but to see that your devotion is not dependent on a particular station or a particular state. That's why at Naropa Allah secondary
for the boss to a boss attacker had to click a camera pod.
And then he said
what means that that he took you out of both of them so that he does not
leave you for anyone apart from him or like he he constructed you so that he does not give you an expansion and he expanded you so that he does not leave you in construction
project coming home or something like that and he took you out of the two stations. So that he does not leave you with anyone but him so that he was
basically purify you completely from any dependence on any station. It is not about the stations it is complete devotion, it is complete devotion to him.
So whether you are in a station of God your station of bus to you or his so whether he when you are in station of clubs, you know you're not dependent on the station to be upright and to be devoted. If he expanded you and if he caused you to be more pursued. You're said watch for the years did his and then if he constricts you, that does not
hurt your relationship with him at all. You're still his and then if he takes you out of both stations and that is in mechanics
to the shape would be in Mohammed finance which is self-annihilation where you are not here you have transcended this stations per se because you have you're not you're gone that is
sort of metaphorically
then you are still his You are his own pub. You are his own boss and your his beyond the stations.
Okay, so then does he accept without effort on Bushido
Allah Allah triple aim at an encoder or masabi hydrocephalic in another group has been expanded as flags on the path in terms of guidance and beacons for the travelers. They are here not for themselves. They are here allies using them as beacons to guide to him.
Because they have and he usually talks in the last stage and he talks about the people who are in phase
one and we did talk about Sony before enough that we don't need to repeat it.
But these people are not here for themselves because they have reached
and not last monitor that keeps them for the benefit of his iPad for the rest of his service. So that was my family bus. That was the station of Buster the station of expansion May Allah
subhana wa tada khudobin and make us of the people of Boston cup and make us beyond this of his people that are the voted whether they are incumbent foreign bus. staff provide some kind of
