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

From the laws of cinema,

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

in order to proceed,

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

today inshallah we will have

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

the chapter or the station of the chapter on or the station of modify or recognition,

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

sometimes translated as notices and because of some irrelevant and sometimes negative connotations we'll just call it modify

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

which means recognition and we will call the IRF and our

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

two avoid loss taken no says and to avoid any possible

00:00:43--> 00:00:47

misconceptions of being attached to the concept.

00:00:48--> 00:00:53

In this modified or the station America or the section

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

the the chapter modifier

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

is number 91.

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

Which means that we are in the last section of the book, The Last 10 stations is the last section and the section is called

00:01:11--> 00:01:17

the endings we're just done with a haka, we just got done with them last week,

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

which is the realities and

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

we are in an era and if you remember the beginning of the book was

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

so suitably the end of the book is

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

the endings

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

and this is section 10.

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

divided the book, remember when he talks about attorney or him or law saying that there are 1000

00:01:45--> 00:01:55

stations between you and along the journey? And he said to you know, I fear that it would be too long for you and for me, so, I

00:01:56--> 00:02:21

basically summarize them into 100 stations. Keep in mind that at every station he has three different levels. So if you would wanted to divide this into 300 different phases that would be possible as well. But anyway, he divided the 100 stations into 10 sections and each each section into

00:02:22--> 00:02:32

he divided 100 stations into 10 sections each section has 10 stations and each stations has three levels and in every level he would usually have

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

three points to make about three points to make.

00:02:38--> 00:02:44

So section 10 is the section on the endings and the final law said

00:02:47--> 00:02:47

above

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

our shadow you could say Russia

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

for

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

Al Mahdi for two words finance will

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

be what we'll do it with the jury with fried with Gemma, what hate

00:03:12--> 00:03:18

as for the section on the endings it is composed of 10 stations recognition, annihilation, subsistence,

00:03:19--> 00:03:26

ascertainment confusion, actuality, stripping sibling union oneness.

00:03:27--> 00:03:46

So nada would be recognition and final would be our relation and power would be subsistence attack, it would be ascertainment, at least would be confusion and we'll do it will be actuality, sometimes translated as existence. It could it does linguistically mean existence it means here actualization or actuality

00:03:48--> 00:03:53

what that what that really means stripping or abstraction what the free means singling?

00:03:56--> 00:04:10

Well, Jama means union motto he means oneness, some people translated as modernism, but because of some negative connotations, we will avoid that and we just call it oneness.

00:04:14--> 00:04:27

And then, these are the 10 stations that we will go over the first one of them is the station of unmodified, which is recognition and the shape here says, color lavas agenda with some your own my own

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

film in a demo.

00:04:31--> 00:04:50

minute. And when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger, that you see their eyes overflowing with tears, because of what they have recognized of the truth because of what they have recognized thought of who recognized of the truth may not have.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

And it is obvious why. To me it is obvious why the shift started with this particular verse because the eyes overflowing with tears means that this

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

is not merely knowledge, but truly monofin. Because the difference between knowledge and modify is that the knowledge is the information that you acquire and modify is the beneficial reformative knowledge that Satan's in your heart

00:05:21--> 00:05:46

to modify is the beneficial to reformative knowledge that does set a linear heart and induce a change. It's transformative it induces a change that it makes a difference. It is not merely a collection of information but rather beneficial transformative knowledge of the heart.

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

Keep in mind that it might

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

have been used in the Quran, mainly in positive

00:05:56--> 00:06:13

terms, but sometimes used to refer to knowledge that did not come to fruition. Both knowledge and knowledge could refer to knowledge that did not come to fruition a law says about advocates abbiati funan coming out, now they know him.

00:06:15--> 00:06:26

They recognize him as they recognize their children, as in reference to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that recognition certainly is one that did not come to fruition.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

So,

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

but for in the in the terminology of the masters of the past or the Messiah of 38. They use malefor

00:06:40--> 00:06:49

to denote that knowledge that sets settles and the heart and brings about transformation, spiritual transformation, moral transformation,

00:06:51--> 00:07:01

integrity, people you know, who have this modified, they have integrity, they have the manners they have the advocates, they walk the talk

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

then the six seven modify a hot button.

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

Hot on dynasty and mighty fact we hopped on Dinesh ar 31, Calico he has to Farah.

00:07:19--> 00:07:41

recognition is the encompassing of the things it's at it is of three levels. And people concerning it are three groups, recognition maryberry Houghton, Dinesh is incompetent knowledge or incompetent, the encompassing of the things that say it, the things that say it, when you say, for instance, and him to

00:07:43--> 00:08:27

Mohammed Mohammedan. He would have to say I live to Mohammed and carry man, I know that Mohammed is Karim, right. I know that Mohammed is, Father, Lord him to father on him to Kareem. And I know he is virtuous. I know he's Kareem, and so on. But when you say are off to Mohammedan, do you need to say, do you need to basically ascribe any attributes to Mohammed? No, because RF two is about knowing the person the obscenity that are after Mohammed and I recognize Mohammed I knew Mohammed, I did not know Him to be such and such I just knew him. So I knew I knew him.

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

I knew him in the sense of

00:08:33--> 00:08:54

the actual person or the safety, liquidity, etc. So the enum usually refers to knowing the attributes the qualities of a person, an entity, the attributes and quality modifier is about knowing the very person, the absurdity.

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

So that is the difference between Allium to Mohammed and you don't say Adam to Mohammed, and you start.

00:09:03--> 00:09:18

You say after Muhammad and you stop because you recognize Mohammed, say, but when you say lm to Mohammed, then you will have to say what you knew about him, and him to who karimun or him to hold him to Fatherland, etc.

00:09:19--> 00:09:27

So that is why it is it is about the things of sanity. It is not about the attributes and qualities, it's about the thing itself.

00:09:28--> 00:09:44

But when you say How about on the infj and when you say incompetent knowledge or to encompass the absurdity, then that precludes no recognizing Allah for us, because you can never encompass a loss of sanity.

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

It will never hear him and they don't encompass him with with their knowledge. You don't encompass a lot with any type of realization, knowledge, who either you just don't encompass a lot with any type of

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

realization.

00:10:03--> 00:10:33

But what I wanted to emphasize here is that this is complete knowledge, this is complete knowledge that is completely consistent with the extra mental reality. So, it is not just one it is not illusion, and it is it is complete knowledge, perfect knowledge that is completely consistent with the extra mental reality. That's what he wanted to say about America. So, just remember that America is more complete, and that

00:10:35--> 00:10:58

when it comes to modify, it is more complete, when it comes to modify, it belongs to the heart when it comes to modify it belongs to the things obscenity, not their attributes and qualities, when it comes to the automatic in the terminology of the machine, if they want to refer to the knowledge that comes to fruition they want to refer to the knowledge that brings about a change that is transformative.

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

So May Allah you know grant America, the

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

data, data, data data, it is three levels. One hot coffee has lots of data, and people concerning it are three groups.

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

He says adonijah told America to suffer to root walk past me habit rissalah was a hot shower, he do have a son.

00:11:31--> 00:11:47

Stop here, translate and then come back. The first level is the recognition of the divine qualities and attributes. Their names have come in the message and they're in the shower head there indicates the things that point to them are clear in the creation.

00:11:49--> 00:12:02

How do you do this? How do you attain this moderator, but also renewed emphasis will t be hired at aka realizzata and Faker were hired to be the person another by na Vimeo has no doubt about

00:12:03--> 00:12:25

this is achieved by the sight of the spiritual light and the willingness of the intellect through reflection and the liveliness of the heart through proper inquiry that is flanked by glorification and thoughtfulness. So, then it is about the recognition of a fatwa note

00:12:26--> 00:12:40

the the qualities and attributes, that is the divine attributes, recognition of the divine attributes, he says their names have come in the message. Because

00:12:42--> 00:12:56

as we said before, there is no way through empirical or innate knowledge to know about a law or to learn about a law. The only way that you could learn about the law is

00:12:58--> 00:13:37

you know, to some extent, and varying from the world of Shahada in fairing from the word of the Shahada about him, that is limited to learning about his existence as the first clauses they say, and His perfection because of the, you know, magnificence and glory of perfection of his creation, you get to infer this about him from the creation, but that will be it right? So his existence and perfection are the only things that you could infer from the world of the world of the scene.

00:13:39--> 00:14:04

But empirical and innate knowledge, aside from this, and aside from your inner sense, your feeling of a lottery, your innocence will not take you anywhere further in your recognition of Allah subhanaw taala and your knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. But the the window that was open for you the access to learning about him that the great access is the reports of the

00:14:06--> 00:14:16

harbor Assad, the truthful reports and how about a saddam can be verified by human concurrence? Or Americans?

00:14:18--> 00:14:32

So human concurrence How about a southern China exists human concurrence for Americans, you know, the people who saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam feed an army of you know, from his hands.

00:14:34--> 00:14:42

Certainly, they ought to believe in the reports that he relates to them from the divine

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

hand everyone who came to know that with certainty, the veracity and the truthfulness of the message, these are Acrobat sadhika. So that is a huge window that was opened for us to come to know Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

So the sheriff wanted to start by this, because you know, the check was a 30 scripture list and his greeted orientation. So he wanted to say that we believe in a safari in the mounds that were revealed to us, by Allah subhanaw taala, through the messenger sallallahu Sallam their names have come in the message.

00:15:26--> 00:15:44

That is the man's thoughts that have been mentioned in the message and the indications are clear in the creation, their indications are clear and the creation things that pour into them are clear in the creation, the power of Allah subhanaw taala Can't you see this around you?

00:15:45--> 00:15:49

The wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

you can see those things, you can see the manifestations of those attributes around you.

00:15:59--> 00:16:44

Without it's okay to have a son. And what would help you have that recognition because it is not simply the knowledge but it is the recognition, it is when you feel a loss justice when you feel allows wisdom in your heart and your heart is also content and comfortable with this, your heart is completely content with with these convictions, these feelings. So this is achieved by the bossa nova emphasis, which is the site of the spiritual light. And notice the light means the subsistent that subsist This means that the spirit or the innermost part of the of the room.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

So that spiritual light to use it

00:16:51--> 00:17:06

to to recognize a loss of Karnataka through his names and attributes and the oneness of the intellect through reflection, the intellect you achieve that oneness of the intellect by being thoughtful by being reflective by being contemplated,

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

not taking things for granted.

00:17:11--> 00:17:23

And that takes a lot of effort. And certainly reflection is not only about reflecting on the creation, but also reflecting on the message of a loss of pinata

00:17:25--> 00:17:36

the witness of the internet through reflection and the liveliness of the hearts through proper inquiry, the liveliness of the heart so when when in your inquiry

00:17:38--> 00:18:03

and in your pursuit of Allah subhanaw taala and recognition of Allah subhanaw taala pinata high caliber person another binaca Lima has no doubt about the Miss glorification and has no doubt about his thoughtfulness. So if you are thoughtful, and you glorify Allah subhanaw taala, you will be able to recognize His names and attributes, and you will be able to have the proper

00:18:05--> 00:18:55

belief about his names and attributes with which the CFO would mentioned shortly and so on. He says, This is the recognition of the public without which the conditions of certainty are not fulfilled. It has three pillars, it has three pillars, this is the ignition of the public, the masses, the public, the commoners, this is not a basically a derogatory pejorative term, this is an endeavor means that you depart from phase one to get phase two, you build on phase one to reach phase two, you build on phase two, to reach base, three, you do not demolish your foundation, to get to the top. These phases are parts of a building, they are on top of each other one of them is a foundation

00:18:55--> 00:19:47

of another, you don't demolish the foundation to climb to the next level. You keep it, you build on it. And that is extremely important that we understand this about the three phases. Otherwise, we could have a completely mistaken understanding of the Shere Khan the book, if you believe in these three phases, as like just hanging in the air disconnected from each other, you will have a completely miss, you will be completely misinformed about the intent of the safe. And the reason why I chose this book is because this is actually a who is somebody in authority and RT that when I interpret his words, in in a completely Sharia compliant ways. I do have the upper hand. Anyone who

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

wants to hijack his message would have a lot of explaining to do because the shape otherwise was strict our body and strict fit and rip that to the extent that some people

00:20:00--> 00:20:53

I consider him to be excessive in his literalism, or in his strength. So when I interpret when, when I give the words of the shave Sharia compliant interpretation, I have the upper hand here, because we know that if we know his legacy, we know his biography. And we're more entitled to him. And we're more entitled to reading to basically having a proper understanding your proper reading of him than anyone who wants to hijack that part of this reading. An important aspect of this is to understand that the three phases are basically parts of a building, one of them is the foundation of the other, they're just not hanging in the air, separate or disconnected from each other is that when you move

00:20:53--> 00:21:18

from phase one, to phase two, you're not departing from phase one to phase two, you're building on phase one. So then the she says the this, this is the recognition of the public, that is not like I said, derogatory expression. He's just says that this is the very basic foundation if you don't have this, like you're not even among the Muslim public.

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

So you have to have this

00:21:23--> 00:21:52

type of recognition. This is the recognition of the public without or certainly he's not, I don't mean like feared by this. But he's he's saying that this is the level of the public the level of the Muslim public. This is the recognition that is befitting of this them that they need to acquire the need to have. So there's a very condition of the public without which the conditions of certainty or not fulfilled and it has three pillars. One

00:21:54--> 00:22:45

it's about the 30, bismi, ham and validators be affirmation of the attributes and the revealed names without assimilation, assimilation. So basically, the formula is baton theory, just be one z one, Z 30, there's no better miraculously, what are the key photons even move at 30. So it's Batman heritage, B would be affirmation. Without assimilation. assimilation means this be anthropomorphism with anthropomorphism when you're like an ally to human beings. That should be is a simulation, which is why they're more comprehensive when you're like an ally to anything to any being to any of the civil anything other than Allah subhanaw taala liking a lot anything that is a simulation, and

00:22:45--> 00:23:01

Akif is basically modality. So if you want to be more assertive, like accurate, you say more that affirmation without assimilation, a modal affirmation without a simulation. So it is it's bad, it is affirmation without

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

assimilation. And it is

00:23:07--> 00:23:38

10 Z, which is exoneration, without party without negation, Tatiana, stripping a lot of his attributes is basically make the attributes top basically, put them off, make them unfunctional, etc. Then either their meanings, stripping a lot of his attributes is what it means or, you know, if you want to have like a sort of a

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

shorter version that is like it's mathematically

00:23:44--> 00:24:05

convenient when beta zero and beta three in English he will say affirmation without assimilation and exoneration without negation, affirmation, try to remember, because it's very simple and affirmation without assimilation and exoneration, without negation.

00:24:06--> 00:24:41

That's the formula it's better to be within z one, z. So there's excess erythematous frt bismi m and V formation of the attributes in the revealed names without insemination. And certainly we will not spend so much time on this because we could we can, we would basically need a few seminars to discuss these three different points that the chief mentioned the years but we haven't made it to be one of you to be on hand and ready to talk at the rejection of assimilation without negation.

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

What he has an Iraqi cornea of divide, we have the spirit of realizing their essence and now in their ontological reality, but we will briefly go over them because this this belongs to you know, this is not at the class This is our PETA course. So after May

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Have the attributes and the revealed names without assimilation, the rejection of assimilation, without negation whenever you touch me on human vitality.

00:25:12--> 00:25:36

And then he says what he has on the record, he now have to call it that we have the spirit of realizing their essences, and knowing their ontological reality, the sphere of realizing their essences, and knowing their ontological reality. So, so you lose hope that you can realize the essence of the attributes, because certainly you can't realize the essence of the attributes of a loss,

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

you lose hope that you could also know the ontological reality of those attributes, which as

00:25:44--> 00:26:11

they seek their weed. Now, what do we mean? What did he mean by that? We mean, we know what he meant, because we know who the CFA is, and we know his scripture lism or his aphorism. So that we could mean one of three things. Which one I mean, here, the ontological reality, the ultimate explanation, the final outcome is called a wheel.

00:26:12--> 00:26:31

Because that will be relevant to me when I'm a team that will, they have denied and sort of units Allah subhanaw taala says Navy have denied that which they, they don't have encompassing knowledge of, and there's a wheel there, they're sort of final actualization

00:26:33--> 00:26:52

has not come to them yet. But it will come to them. That's the Day of Judgment, you know, the sort of, they denied resurrection, they deny the Day of Judgment, that they don't have encompassing knowledge of it. And the final word of the day of judgment, which is what the actual happening,

00:26:54--> 00:26:57

are taking place of Resurrection Day.

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

So that we it means one of three things, one of them is what

00:27:03--> 00:27:12

one of them is the ontological reality final outcome that is only known to Allah subhanaw taala. That's only known to Allah.

00:27:16--> 00:27:22

May Allah widow Illallah. And then you could stop here and say, what's your point of learning?

00:27:24--> 00:27:38

And then no one knows it's that we meaning it is ontological reality, it is actual essence, except a loss of pinata, except a loss of parameter. So that's the first half of that weed.

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

And that is that is kept for a lot. Now, what's the second type of lien second type that we have is the explanation.

00:27:51--> 00:27:58

That steps here, many of the earlier x gates, they would say they would quote the fear that we'd

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

say so tafsir

00:28:06--> 00:28:15

is means that we in in the terminology of the type of data in the user called the Tafseer books, that we

00:28:17--> 00:28:43

and that type of wheel is known to everybody who knows or understands the language, when it comes to the simple statements, easy straightforward statements, they are known to everyone who knows the language. But when it comes to the intricate ones, they are known to the people who are well grounded in knowledge only known to the people who are well down to the knowledge and the third type of leaders which that we

00:28:45--> 00:29:40

is that that we that is controversial. It is that we that is deflecting the primary meanings in favor of deflecting the VA has had primary meanings in favor of madjozi or secondary meanings in favor of esoteric secondary madjozi meanings. That is that we that's controversial, and not because I'm sorry, but even in the amount of political views or sorry platanos candid enough to say that the the Sahaba were never engaged or the righteous predecessors in general, were never engaged in this type of that we It is clear that they were not engaged in this type of that we not even remember Partovi, but in the moment joining America in Ramallah tala, he himself also said when when, when he

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

when he was supporting food against a weed he himself said that it is clear that the righteous predecessors whenever involved in that type of wheel, so at least what we can agree on is that difference community was not engaged in this type of stuff.

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

With, which is deflecting the primary meanings and favor of secondary meanings, which is to say that Rahim does not necessarily mean praqma or mercy, that means wedding kindness

00:30:18--> 00:30:19

or willing

00:30:22--> 00:30:31

to favor or to be kind towards or something of that nature. So that's called deflection of primary meanings in favor of secondary

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

meanings.

00:30:35--> 00:30:56

Okay, so knowing the shape and no one is aphorism it is clear to us what he meant by that we'd hear what did he mean? The action, the ontological reality, the fight the actual nature of these attributes, so we know their meanings. But we know, we don't know their ontological reality.

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

Because that is kept to Allah.

00:31:02--> 00:31:33

Now, he will move on now to the second phase. And he says in the second phase, keep in mind, you're taking the first phase with you to the second, you're building on the first you're building the second on the first but, you know, not everybody who built the foundation raise that, you know, beyond that. So now you're moving to the second and she access to Santa Monica to that noise started to free up beta support, he was that way to bear in mind, Gemma was fully made.

00:31:34--> 00:31:40

What to stack metal, because what 234 is way out. So that's it again.

00:31:42--> 00:31:56

The second level is the recognition of the that it's at with the dropping of the distinction between the qualities and the absurdity. And that becomes established by the knowledge of union and becomes a clear in the realm of Finance. And it is protected by the knowledge of

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

and it approaches the essence of the Union.

00:32:02--> 00:32:21

Okay, well, you know, that she liked, like, linguistic finesse, and he had like, you know, symbolism and so on. But also it is not only that, his liking of this, but also his interest in brevity made him use symbolic speech most of the time.

00:32:23--> 00:33:13

But what did he mean, by the way? So the second level is the recognition of the that was the dropping of the distinction between the qualities and the absurdity. So he wants you to focus now on the and he does not want you to be distracted from the, by the attributes by the fact that he wants you to deny that support? No, then he would be telling you demolish the base that the foundation that we just talked about. But what he wants you is to not be distracted by the support from the that. Could you be? Yes. So keep in mind that, you know, what, why is he talking about union here, because he was talking about the conversion, you know, that you will do in your mind conversion. So

00:33:13--> 00:33:21

he's talking about dropping the distinction between the qualities and the absurdity. And that becomes established by the knowledge of union,

00:33:24--> 00:34:09

which is different from the experience of union that he will talk about it in Feder, which is the actualization of the actual essence of union and becomes clear in the realm of finance, which is self annihilation, because you need to not see yourself if you are to converge to the manifestations into the support, and it's about into that, as we will speak about, and it is perfected by the knowledge of our subsistence and it approaches the essence of the Union. So, what he wants you to do here is that he wants you to converge all the manifestations into this effort. So, all the manifestations of lost power around you, when you see them, when you reflect on them, converge all

00:34:09--> 00:34:59

of this into what allows power. So, everything around you that that points to a loss of power, will converge into your mind to a loss of power. So you will stop beholding the manifestations you will hold the what the sofa, the sofa allows power, everything that points to a lot of wisdom, you will stop seeing the individual that far. You know the individual realizations and Farquhar which is basically the variety, the diversity and the universe around us converge, converge all of the manifestations, and then all of them will converge into a laws, wisdom. Everything that points to Allah's mercy, convert them convert them. You will now behold the laws with our laws, mercy and not

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

the man

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

manifestations, you're okay here,

00:35:04--> 00:35:43

he doesn't want you to stop here. Now let that all those farmers with that, so that you are not distracted by the support from the that. Because if you are stuck with a safari car, you have not really had the proper focus and attention on that. That is the exact that is described by all this far, because he's not talking about that in abstraction from all the support, he's talking about that that is described by all the savant because he is absolutely and that to him is described by those

00:35:44--> 00:36:14

by those qualities and attributes. So, he does not want you to deny the support, so that you can behold that that he wants you to not stop there at the level of the CFR after you have converged all the manifestations in the existence into the CFR he does not want you to stop there, but then all merged into the vat. So that you you're beholding is of the that that is described by all those Safar

00:36:15--> 00:37:06

and then that she said, and then when you do this, the tapestry of this universe will become one hole, and you internally become one hole as well. There there is it is seamless harmony, it is seamless continuity, you will not see any conflict between his power and his mercy, because you're seeing one that that is qualified by both, you are not seeing the distinction. Or you're seeing the distinction in in one sense, but you're not seeing a conflict or Rift, that between, you know, his might and his compassion, you know, you are seeing the seamless harmony between all of this, because you have you're now beholding that

00:37:08--> 00:37:21

only then you will be able to see the master design and you will be able to feel internally whole and one and basically move beyond the fragmentation of your soul.

00:37:23--> 00:37:35

Now, then, he says, Why allathee ARCA and this is three levels or has three pillars this second phase has three pillars is

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

the art of

00:37:37--> 00:38:09

living the quality is dominated there indicates what settled Warsaw atll moderate living the stations dominate their means were saddled a bharathiar mad and letting the realities dominate their expressions way am artifactual Casa La te nezu min Oakland happy this is the recognition of the elites which is found in the provinces of realities, this is the recognition of the elite which is found in the provinces of realities.

00:38:10--> 00:38:30

So, what does he mean by letting the qualities dominate their indicates letting the stations dominate their means letting the realities dominate their expressions? Now, you become of the people have read the reality is not the manifestations of the numina not the phenomena, the realities, not the manifestations. So,

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

as we have talked before, once you reach your destination, you don't need the signpost. So, now you will be of the people who

00:38:44--> 00:38:44

you know

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

who have Haku ascertained those realities.

00:38:53--> 00:39:04

And when you ascertain those realities, the stations for instance, they are there are means to the stations, those stations that we talked about, you know, have means now you have

00:39:06--> 00:39:14

actualized the stations, you know you don't need the means now you have recognized a loss of generality.

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

You don't need the signposts

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

you become of the people of

00:39:24--> 00:39:27

the people of realities.

00:39:29--> 00:39:29

Scene,

00:39:31--> 00:39:35

time era, Allah when he divides Sophia, he divides them into three different types

00:39:37--> 00:39:42

of realities. Those are the truths who views Hulu

00:39:43--> 00:39:44

or Sophia terrazza.

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

These are the people

00:39:48--> 00:39:52

basically or after monetary gains. So Sophia,

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

and Sophia, or assume Sophia are the people that reality

00:40:02--> 00:40:02

So,

00:40:03--> 00:40:27

are the people who are after monetary gains, those are the people who have endowment setup for them. He doesn't really disparage them by the way, he says that these are the requirements, these are the prerequisites that they need to fulfill to be deserving of those above they have to have proper shot etiquettes they should not be faster they should be they should abide by

00:40:31--> 00:40:45

the faster they should follow the advocates of the haka their advocates not necessarily their inner realities, most of the time, he says not all the time, but they should just be having the proper etiquette most of the time

00:40:47--> 00:40:55

and they should not be also hoarding money, they should not be taken any excesses

00:40:57--> 00:41:18

or hoarding money, they should just be limiting themselves to their sustenance having the proper advocates abiding by Hassan Hassan and he says these are the conditions to be deserving of subsistence from those are half. So if someone made a walk for for instance, for the Sofia or something, so that those are

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

you know the Sofia that stay in those particular

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

places, motels or whatever however you translate

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

that

00:41:33--> 00:41:40

and that he says Sophia Rossum or Sophia to resume those are the people the ceremonial Sophie's

00:41:42--> 00:42:19

Sophie's formalities, formalities or ceremonial Sophie's, it is it is about the turban, it is about particular behavior particular is the act in a certain way. So they they look like the Sophie's, but they have nothing to do with Sufism. So he says that the people who are ignorant of the reality would think that they are, but they have nothing to do with with the people that realities. And he says the people that realities are not known even to basically stay in those places, and they are not known.

00:42:20--> 00:43:03

It is not about the formalities. It's not about the ceremonial stuff. It is about the realities, it is about their connection with Allah, it is about their integrity. It is about their interstates, it's about their manners and etiquette. That is what it is about. But then some people made a living out of it. And some people also got sort of distracted by the formalities and the ceremonial stuff from the actual realities. So anyway, it is about the reality it is or the realities, not the formalities, he meant to say, it just reminded me of this is of this classification of is.

00:43:05--> 00:43:23

So this is the recognition of the elites, elites, which is found in the provinces of realities, not phenomena, but numina. Well, there are 230 thermographer, mastaba, coffee mug, de la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,

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

la, la,

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

de la, we're here at

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

the third level is a recognition that is subsumed in the top three, which is divine teaching.

00:43:36--> 00:43:50

I don't know how to translate it. You know, Marika is your recognition. Daddy is when Allah makes you causes you to recognize. So I guess divine teaching or something, but if someone has a better translation, please help.

00:43:52--> 00:44:01

So America is your own recognition. tarrif is transitive, it is when a law causes you to recognize

00:44:03--> 00:44:51

and modify is when you recognize but now and this third level what what is it what where does the chick want to be here he wants to be in self annihilation and phenol in annihilation. Again, that is not ontological nine elation, because we know that if that is perceptual annihilation around a nation of wills, for that era that annulation of wills or, or perception annihilation, that's where the chief wants you to be. But even if it is perception, annihilation, you should not be attributing anything to yourself. There is no modify anymore because you're not here. That is because a lie is here is Allah is only here. So it is his work that that you are focused on not your work. It is not

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

your modifier. It is history if it is not your recognition, but he is causing you to have the recognition.

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

So the third

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

recognition that is subsequently in the Atari, which is the divine teaching they used to do they had is the lead and that's not reached, reached through evidences, what I don't know Allah has not pointed by indicates,

00:45:15--> 00:45:33

what the heck Why was he there and not realized by any means, it is mere It is only the work of Allah subhanaw taala It is not something that you can acquire, and it's something that you are gifted that you are granted

00:45:34--> 00:45:52

because Allah felt that you are deserving of it in his own you know, judgment he felt that you are deserving on it. So, he gave it to you, but you should not feel deserving of it of course, or entitled to it

00:45:55--> 00:46:16

pointed to So, it has three pillars he says way out the arc and it has three pillars, which are added to purpose odonnell alma mater lot and drama club witnessing the new Uranus was sold on it and transcending knowledge. Again, as we said, This does not mean you demolish it, you build on it

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

keep in mind that these things, you know,

00:46:23--> 00:46:41

some of the deviations, the partners to the path of the soul have later on have triggers had earlier triggers. So the emphasis which became undue emphasis on modify versus knowledge or on

00:46:43--> 00:46:57

the because the earlier Messiah wanted to highlight the inadequacy of knowledge that is intellectual knowledge, the inadequacy of knowledge,

00:46:58--> 00:47:04

that does not that is not transformative, that does not bring about its its fruits and benefits.

00:47:06--> 00:47:43

Some later started to undermine knowledge itself, and that is undermining the epistemic value of the revelation that why so but certainly the earlier Messiah did not ever mean that and many of the later uprightness, I never meant that, they just want you to understand that knowledge alone is insufficient, unless it is beneficial transformative knowledge. So that is that is what he says was sold, why did I hit him with ethics transcending knowledge,

00:47:44--> 00:47:58

or metadata might be holding the union. And as we said, Let the manifestations converge in the attributes that the attributes converge and that that is when everything falls in place, and becomes

00:47:59--> 00:48:11

whole and you have the seamless harmony outside and inside you were here modified to Casa de casa. It is the recognition of the elites of the elites.

00:48:12--> 00:48:17

And that brings us to the end of the station of America.

00:48:19--> 00:48:23

Allahu Allah subhanaw taala grant is modified of him

00:48:26--> 00:48:27

to chronicle unconditional love
