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

smell from the muscles and I want

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

to proceed today we would have to record the chapter on to the code or the station of perfect code.

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

In the following session on Fifth, we will be talking about who to

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

ask for

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

this you know our talk Ron does care about the vector

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


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

said blah blah blah was

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

11 unique format vetco a llama uni

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

chapter or perfect could allow a mighty sad but not what to remember except he who turns back in repentance except one he who turns back and repentance and there are many

00:00:57--> 00:01:11

verses in the Quran that talk about the record that invited Vectra as well as the fact book. So the verses invite to the fact code which is a reflection and perfect code which is remembrance or in vocation.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

So the

00:01:16--> 00:01:22

many, many of those purposes but he chose this particular verse, you know, often as

00:01:25--> 00:01:25

a matter of fact.

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

But he chose particularly this verse, woman, effectively Lamin uni, but not what remember, except to those who returned to Allah Spano Tata to give you

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

a hint to the reason why he

00:01:46--> 00:02:09

you know, he put this he put this particular chapter here, this is a chapter that belongs after he now the, the you know, this is the station that comes after in one will not have the effect or remembrance one one not invoke the fruits of reflection

00:02:10--> 00:02:40

to the center of his awareness unless one had returned to Allah, the return to Allah is a prerequisite The ynab is a prerequisite for the station after effect code. The Inaba which is the return to ally repentance is a prerequisite for the station of the vector and then they go hand in hand as we said, before those stations overlap to a great extent.

00:02:42--> 00:02:49

And then he said, that gurufocus factor in the fact Cora Paula born what the fact Cora was.

00:02:51--> 00:03:03

So, he said, the remembrance is superior to different reflections, which is the fact pattern self reflection. So remembrance which has perfect code is superior to reflection.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

Because he said for reflection is a pursuit.

00:03:09--> 00:03:57

It is a search, a pursuit, it's, you know, seeking, when you make the fact or at all, both of them have this form this four flexes verb form, which is, you know, to find out, you know, so both of them have this form, which indicates what effort and indicates what, perseverance, persistence, it is something that you work harder that the fact code, the exact code, it's not like acapella eight, it is a fact. So, the this, this added these added letters, the indicate that this particular verb form is to

00:03:58--> 00:04:28

basically, you know, point out the the effort that is spent in this act of the fact that the record, so, he said that perfect, perfect, perfect quarter of the vector is superior to reflection, because he said that, that the fact core reflection is thought of when you make the fact call you when you reflect, you are pursuing, you know,

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

convictions, thoughts, you're trying to find things, but when you make the vector, you are remembering them, you are finding them, you are bringing them back to the center of your awareness. These are the fruits of the factor that are already existent. And you're bringing in bringing them back to the center of your awareness. But why is the vet corps superior to that factor? Not just because the vet corps would you

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

Perfect chorus Taleb, not just because the vector is finding, you know, or the vector is attainment versus the fact chord which is looking, searching, seeking, pursuing. Not just that, but there is there is more to it,

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

that, certainly the chef was more aware of it than me, but there is more to it that we can elaborate on.

00:05:26--> 00:05:37

So, he mentioned that one of them, the fact that that developer is basically bringing in to bring back to the center of your awareness, what you already

00:05:38--> 00:06:28

discovered through the factor of personal reflection, the fruits of your perfect core core reflection, it is also to take them to heart, because the factor is a cognitive intellectual function. Two factor is, you know, when you think of the factor, when you think of self reflection, whether you're thinking of a cognitive function, it's an intellectual function, it is basically, using your mind, although we said before, many times that when you make the factor, you want to have your heart in fight to this as well. But it is predominantly an intellectual cognitive function. The factor is predominantly intellectual, and intellectual and cognitive function. But then there's that

00:06:28--> 00:07:26

core, you know, the fruits of this, the factor the fruits of your reflection, you know, the thoughts, that convictions that you came up with hafta reflection, those facts and conviction that that code will help you take them to heart, they never become operative, they can now produce changes in you produce changes in your spirituality, produce changes in your behavior in your conduct, through does occur through the invocation of those thoughts, and convictions, now, you take them to art, and now they start to produce changes in you. So that makes the vector superior to the physical, although the factory is a prerequisite after that. And some of the scholars may even say

00:07:27--> 00:07:27

that, you know, that

00:07:29--> 00:08:00

he said, the factor is superior to the vector, because the factor means that your mind is present while you're making the vector. And that is why it is important to understand that these things go hand in hand, they are interdependent, and they overlap, because to make design, without the factor without reflecting upon your music, on your remembrance is inferior. But he's saying here, that that

00:08:01--> 00:08:31

depends on the factor. So, the factor comes first reflection comes first to that core is to take the fruits to reap the benefits of the this reflection, to take the fruits of reflection to heart and to allow them to produce changes. So, that is why in a moment, how are we saying here and most of the, you know, seekers of the path and most of the writings in this particular regard, we put the factor higher than the factor

00:08:33--> 00:08:42

for these reasons, in addition to this, in addition to this, there is something else that makes the factor

00:08:43--> 00:08:55

superior to the factor, because we say that the factor, you know, what is self reflection, the factor is important, basically,

00:08:56--> 00:09:16

have here, saw your thoughts confirmed and you have Can you make convictions through the fact code. But then this is all the rational belief. This is basically ultimately opinion but it is not a high energy appeal. This is basically

00:09:17--> 00:09:44

a level of certainty that factor could bring you to a level of certainty that is great through the factor, but it is still intellectual. And it is, you know, it does not bring you to the complete sort of more Shahada where it becomes a high energy epi and it is, you know, you're convinced your belief in Allah subhanaw taala is the belief of one who,

00:09:48--> 00:09:57

on top of luck, and Nikita is the belief of one who worships Allah has if he sees him, that is the level of asset.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Look at this verse.

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

You know, we've tried to break this down a little bit, look at this verse send an email and in fact, you have to see him had the debate alarm and now we'll have Harlem he actually brought up the Kandahar aqualisa he,

00:10:13--> 00:11:04

this is a version sort of facility, Allah subhanaw taala says and remember a attina Phil FFT where he unfussy him, we will show them our science, we will show them our signs that are proves our science, in fact, in the horizons around them, in their surroundings, where he unforeseen and within themselves inside them in their own neffs we will show them our signs and their own new foods, have he unforeseen had data may or may not have until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth, it becomes clear to them that it is the truth, this message, that I am the truth, I am God, Allah, that you know, sender of this message, have you ever had to intubate another human?

00:11:05--> 00:11:17

And then there is a huge leap now in, in the level of certainty, that does not come through the air

00:11:18--> 00:11:47

in the horizons, the signs on the horizon and themselves. But then Allah says, LLM, yuck fever up began, Mr. aqualisa injury, isn't it sufficient concerning Aragorn that he is the ever present witness over all things, he is the witness, meaning that he is the proof, he is the side.

00:11:49--> 00:12:01

And he is witness to everything to our existence. And that, that comes through the record does not come through the faculty.

00:12:03--> 00:12:38

Because reflection, the faculty, in the surroundings, when you reflect in the surroundings, you reflect on the creations of Allah subhanaw taala, and you make the fackler. Reflect on all of those creations of Allah, that are temporal in nature, that are disposable, right, what is disposable, you know, if I don't come back next week, you will find some some other activity, if you're if you if if you vanish.

00:12:39--> 00:12:47

Tomorrow, your wife will find something else to do like she will go to work, she will take care of the kids

00:12:49--> 00:13:03

were very disposable creations, you know, that they that the sort of the universe is not really dependent on us. Isn't that the train, we the masters of this planet, who are you know,

00:13:06--> 00:13:16

where we can, you know, we can just vanish tomorrow, and nothing What happened, the universe will go carry on,

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

everything will be will not be much different.

00:13:21--> 00:14:03

So we that the disposable sort of creations, were not only disposable, but were contingent creations. It's the concept of where to begin with God and mom can and will do or die as we are there is that our existence is really not necessary for for anything is it? Is our existence necessary for anything? No, but our existence, the existence of what monkey will do the origin of the existence of the contingent creations is a solid proof on the existence, existence of the necessary which is widely available to

00:14:04--> 00:14:11

the existence of the necessarily existence, where people will do the necessary which is God.

00:14:12--> 00:14:25

So this is salaryman in FL, FL POV and foresee him because a little bit of reflection and anyone that comes up with counter argument to this concept of the concept of contingency.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

The counter argument is flawed. You know, the the existence of this universe the mere existence of any thing rules out any point of Adam or nothingness we said this before, several times the mere existence at any time, rules out nothingness at any time. So are arguing from contingency the presence of these contingent creations? These you know temporal this pole

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

Trouble creations, they argue for the they are the best argument on the existence of the necessary which is God necessarily existence which is God and then if all of this creation does not exist around you if this era the nothing exists, just your this is what he unfussy him your very mere existence you alone, which is you unforeseen, your very mere existence is a proof on his existence

00:15:37--> 00:15:48

on the inside the cloud has like a chapter on this, just reflecting our reflecting on this self, this soul that, you know,

00:15:49--> 00:16:18

forget about the deniers they can call this person who we can call this conscience, they can pull this whatever they want, they want there is an EFS there is a rule there is this subtle substance, subtle, divine noorani substance that is inside you, that makes you different from a lion or from you know, a piece of

00:16:21--> 00:16:21

you know,

00:16:22--> 00:16:40

or rock or anything, you know, so that knifes that nafsa, that makes you who you are that naps that is envious, that is brave, you know, righteous, same time, you know,

00:16:41--> 00:16:45

oppressor, etc, that neffs

00:16:46--> 00:17:00

reflecting on it will lead you to God because this neffs that that is all that is capable of all of these things that makes you who you are, has no

00:17:02--> 00:17:19

you know, has no ability whatsoever to create itself. It does not even recognize itself. As we said in the last session, it does not even have full recognition of itself, he or not is not completely aware of your nerves, is it?

00:17:20--> 00:17:49

Does your nerves have complete awareness encompassing knowledge of your neffs the nature of this room? Because I don't I cannot rule the nature of this room that does this room have encompassing the awareness, knowledge, recognition, realization of itself, it doesn't, then someone from outside must have this knowledge

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

and must have been the creator of this next.

00:17:54--> 00:18:34

So, all of this all of these arguments first cause argument arguing from contingency and so on, that is all rational that that brings you to our edmonia theme, knowledge of certainty, but this is the cognitive This is still intellectual, but through to that core. Now, then me enter the code here is not the mere repetition of sacred speech, the factor is much more than this. It is the factor that is based on the factor that is built on the factor through this factor.

00:18:36--> 00:19:16

The repeating you know the enunciation of his names as well. So the repetitive enunciation the repetitive invocation of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. You move from this ration of conviction, passion and knowledge from enemy Athene to identity attain. Now you have the Masada mocha surfer, now, at the front door will be opened for you adore to Moshe had to be holding Allah subhanaw taala to can suffer to have this

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

revelation or to have this

00:19:23--> 00:19:28

level of certainty that that is finally attained that is the level of

00:19:29--> 00:19:40

luck and I can tell you do not reach to this it is meta rational it is not counter rational because it is in the same direction that your reason is leading you.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

Do you understand the difference between meta rational and counter rational or irrational?

00:19:48--> 00:19:56

You know, so meta rational is beyond reason, but it is in the same direction so reason led you to God

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

reason gave you this element

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

In the certain knowledge of his existence and his greatness and His perfection, and now it's the root effect where you are moving beyond the element he have been, but in the same direction, now in the opposite direction, you're moving beyond this, to have greater certainty, the the certainty of one will be old's God. The other that greater certainty, it's through the rate, repetitive enunciation and invocation with the fact code with reflection of the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, and the signs of a Lost Planet, Allah in this universe, that you reach that level, it becomes

00:20:45--> 00:21:15

it becomes it is completely different from the just the intellectual conviction. And it is a matter that is why the said that these things can be tasted, they can't be told, because it is meta rational, it's outside of the realm of reason, it is beyond the realm of reason, but it is now opposite to it. And we will come back and talk about the importance of,

00:21:16--> 00:21:21

of reason, in all of this reason is

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

as Muslims, we never need to counter reason, but you have to understand the limitations of your reason. So that the, so that your reason does not limit you does not confine you, you have to understand them that, you know, acquisition of knowledge happens through reason. But there is acquisition of knowledge, beyond reason, beyond reason, not counterterrorism, but beyond reason. So salaryman in Africa, photography unforeseen, whatever availa level hoc or rational, our MC fever began Mr. Equity change he is it is it not sufficient concerning your Lord, that he is the ever present witness over all things. So, now, after you have moved from annamaria T, to idea t in and

00:22:21--> 00:22:34

through this. So through this repetitive invocation of his names was perfect, good. You have this level of certainty which is I ended up in the certainty of one who will be holds God.

00:22:38--> 00:23:28

That, then along will be the witness to all things that are lost upon Allah and God. And so whenever you doubt, any existence, whenever you know you, like you have, whenever a debate with someone who believes in financial truth, for instance, which is you know, self annihilation, in God, you tempt them. No, my Lord told me that he created man. You know what happened in Santa Clara McLean. My Lord told me that he created man of soil, Milo Lord created me told me that he created man, and he created the heavens and the earth in six days, what a

00:23:29--> 00:23:34

minimum, a facility a settlement level, so becomes your witness

00:23:35--> 00:24:35

to the reality of this existence, that although this existence is contingent upon him, dependent upon him, it's deficient itself insufficient, it's contingent upon his existence, but there is reality to this existence, and he becomes the witness to this to the reality of these existences, you know, these contingent existences. So, now, that the question is not you know, for the question does not become this God exist, you know, the Particularly, when it comes to the concept of finance, the question becomes, do we exist? And, and then, because the existence of God is beyond any question. So, then the question becomes, do we exist and then we say, Yes, we exist, God told us, we

00:24:35--> 00:24:52

exist. And God told us that he created that there is creation and creator and there is a difference between the creation of creator a God told us that he decreed things, and you know, is that govern the universal decrees may or may not be

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

desirable by him that he decrees things that he does not particularly

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

I love because God told us that there is a difference between his era and his Mahatma his decrees and that which he loves. So God becomes your witness to all of these things. So that's why I'm that's another reason why the record is greater than perfect. But this brings us to an important concept also, which is the parents in the son of the prophet SAW this balance in the record, because when you have in that when you mentioned that in the name of Allah subhanaw taala. Alone, which is Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, I am not, you know, I am not one who says that.

00:25:48--> 00:25:55

This is why I don't have any proof that the prophets have allowed us to say that.

00:25:56--> 00:26:34

But the people who say that they may say that this is, you know, what a last minute kind of sentence for the Muslim but for instance, with Chris modificata, better at Tila and mentioned the name of your record and the name of minorities on law. So I would mention it. This is a fifth argument. This is not a bit our second argument and we have to move beyond this, we have to understand the difference between Villa versus sun and fifthly arguments. This is simply a fact the argument, if you believe that there is enough proof in this verse, to mention the name of the Lord.

00:26:36--> 00:26:47

Just alone, Allah, Allah Allah, not in a phrase, not in a phrase such as suppiler la Pomme de la la la, la la Akbar. That's fine for you.

00:26:48--> 00:27:06

You know, they're the if you believe that there is no indication that the prophets are seldom used to say Allah alone, not in a phrase that's fine for you as well. If you believe that what's good is Morocco we can mention the name of your Lord

00:27:08--> 00:27:48

is dependent and understanding of this mentioned the name of your Lord is dependent on the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Allah, how did the prophets of Salaam use the mentioned the name of his Lord? And we don't have any proof that he would say Allah alone. And we have proves that he said that on the one I'm in a company that I love, for instance, the best thing that I said and the prophets before me is like I have a lot and have a lot been superior, about the mention of Allah, not in this phrase that have been superior, it would be Lal Allah would have not been the best thing that he and the prophets before him

00:27:49--> 00:28:44

said. And that's, that's what I personally believe. But this is not a cause for contention, you know, this should not be made a cause for contention for the disagreement. And you if you have a point, your contender has a point. Let's move on, to present your your proofs your points, let him present his proofs and points and let us move on. But I will look at this from a different perspective. I would look at you know why I believe that Lyra and ally is superior than just the mention of the name, the repetitive enunciation of the main the name, Allah alone, because it has this balance has negation and affirmation. At the same time, it is saying that there is creation and

00:28:44--> 00:29:24

creator and the creations do not deserve the divinity of the Creator and the creations do not deserve your devotion. There is only one that deserves your devotion. So that brings to your awareness, the existence of creations that are not deserving of your devotion are not deserving of your worship, that there is only one that is deserving of your worship. So that balance That's for me the that secret formula Allah Allah Allah gives you this balance and keeps you balanced, but the mere mention of the name,

00:29:25--> 00:29:30

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, this is affirmation.

00:29:31--> 00:29:49

without, you know the other without the negation that is embodied in the form Allah, Allah, Allah Allah and that could lead to the, the, this praise for self annihilation, where you have become

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

unaware of the existence, you know, so you're you want a lot to do

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

Be in the center of your awareness and all of us do. But then with this affirmation not combined with negation,

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

you become unaware of the existence and becoming aware of the existence,

00:30:16--> 00:31:05

or the reality of the existence can have harmful consequences. The NBA and the Sahaba era hip, they were still able to be hold the line have a line, the center of their attention and awareness, while cognizant of their environment, their circumstances. Hi, I'm here, you know, this is this is the Battle of better and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam implores Allah subhanaw taala, to give victory to the believers with, you know, passion. So he's passionate in his heart, because he's aware of the existence he's aware of the circumstances, he's aware of the battle and the circumstances of the battle and the number of the mushrikeen and,

00:31:06--> 00:31:07

but if you become

00:31:09--> 00:31:13

oblivious to this existence to this reality,

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

then you will not even have the resolve, to change to change the you know, the mocker or to are they in that which is good and to forbid that which is evil, because at one point, everything will be his decree, and then you will confuse his rather with his mohabbat that which he wants and decrease with that which he loves, and desires. So, you will confuse the two and you will result in complete indifference, complete indifference, complete detachment from the reality in which we live in. So that is why this formula, this balanced formula, and I have a look. And then the rest of the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, they bring about this balance in our understanding of Allah

00:32:14--> 00:32:29

because reflecting on the essence, and the that of Allah subhanaw taala. Not through his names and attributes, but just reflecting on the that the essence of a law is not desirable.

00:32:31--> 00:32:54

To to only reflect on the essence, not through his names and attributes and his science and his actions is not desirable. There is in fact a hobby that is reported by the Bernie family, by the way in which the prophets of Salaam said was reported to have said, the Hadees is likely not authentic. But the Prophet was reported to have said

00:32:55--> 00:33:20

Latifah Kuru Viva la Vida, roofie Allah and do not meditate on the essence of a lie and meditate on the graces and the use of a loss of power. So, because meditating on the essence of Allah alone, meditating on the essence of Allah alone, could be overwhelming.

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

You know, sometimes how we work in our computer and computer freezes.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

That happens too often.

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

But, like,

00:33:35--> 00:33:57

your intellect, it could be beyond you. It could burn your intellect to reflect on the essence of Allah subhanaw taala. But we reflect on a lot through his names and attributes, through his actions and decrees, through His signs in the universe through

00:33:58--> 00:34:09

the dispensations of Allah subhanaw taala in this universe, and that that is that that brings about this balance

00:34:10--> 00:34:39

to a lovely day and I had no idea what I had. Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah what medical produce with salami, and why mineralizes with a barrel Mata Kappa you, you reflect on all of these names those names and it gives you this balance, it gives you this balance, recognition, balance, realisation of the Divine. So, then, the attacker is superior to the fact or why

00:34:41--> 00:34:44

going back to where we started, that could have superior to perfect code.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

Because that code is finding, you know, invoking bringing to the center of your awareness the fruits of the fact God, so it is a step after the fact

00:35:00--> 00:35:52

Because the vector brings you to identity a team, it takes you from this rational conviction to a higher level of meta rational conviction, not counter rational, but meta rational conviction, where the existence of Allah subhanaw taala, does not become, does not become an intellectual conviction anymore. Because if it is an intellectual conviction, then it is subject to questioning. But it is beyond that intellectual conviction. And it is not sub subject to questioning. And then the last thing and you know why we're talking about this, we talked about the importance of the balance that the prophets of Allah taught us in the vicar of Allah. But again, we I emphasize that for those

00:35:52--> 00:36:07

people who mentioned the name separately, with, you know, Allah, Allah, Allah, I emphasize that I am not considering this a bit. And I don't call it a beta. I'm just saying that, to me,

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

the way the prophets of Salaam use the mention of La Spinetta Allah

00:36:14--> 00:36:28

is different, he used to say some kind of loud 100 whatever that was reported from him, but I am not denying that the other day contender does have a point. You know,

00:36:30--> 00:36:34

there are there are other proofs, not just what Chris barbic What about

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

the other proves that the mention of Allah subhanaw taala is,

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

is basically prescribed.

00:36:44--> 00:37:00

But I'm saying to bring this balance, the same as the last panel, Allah mentioned the other names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala would bring about this bonus, if you believed that you could mention the name of Allah subhanaw taala separately and love them

00:37:01--> 00:37:37

separately, then my recommendation to you is to also say surprised about come to the land to also remember the other names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala to also remember the other major attributes and to also make the other car that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to make and that he recommended and that he prescribed. So part of love handy is how do I get all the you know, that he told us of the great reward capleton for time how to design for better time for me than heavy in the scales and so on.

00:37:39--> 00:37:52

also mentioned the other names and attributes and also make the other half quarter that the profits are seldom used to make so that you will have this balance in your perfect core of Allah subhanaw taala and meditation.

00:37:54--> 00:38:04

Then the last the last thing that makes the vector superior to the fact that I think that makes the fact that the invocation have

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala and his dispensation superior to reflection

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

or self reflection, is that the fact could was not ever said in the corner under the sun. It brings about joy, happiness, peace, tranquility, that's it. But the fact is, it does have a loss in the center physically it took manual kulu ne in the remembrance of a low only and remember as a lot what hearts find tranquility or tomahto menina peace, you know,

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

peace, comfort,

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

tranquility, serenity, all of them. So this tomar Nina this peace and comfort and tranquility and serenity is not attainable just through the faculty.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

It is when you make zinc,

00:39:04--> 00:39:30

it is when you it is there repetitive enunciation of his names it is the perfect color it is the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala what is the factor was the factor it is not just the mere function of the tongue, it is not just the mere, you know and variable phenomenon, but with the factor, because keep in mind that tobacco is way beyond the repetitive enunciations

00:39:31--> 00:39:52

because it's just the repetitive enunciations it cannot be this superior to everything else as the prophet SAW someone said. Remember happiness and intimacy from a Buddha or the Levant or the prophet SAW someone said that on a bill medical was Gohan. The majority to not find heterogeneity from Ohio to

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


00:40:00--> 00:40:04

title. Now we also have a lot of a lot of big robot,

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

robot. And

00:40:11--> 00:40:23

so the profits are so upset today not any of the best of your deeds and the purist in the sight of your lower than the ones most conducive to raising your rankings.

00:40:25--> 00:40:31

And the one that is more one that is greater

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

in a war than spending, gold and silver in even greater in the world than confronting your enemy, smiling together next, and they might think that your next

00:40:45--> 00:41:14

house cleaner and everything, and then the Sahaba said, Oh, certainly, please do please tell us of what is better than all of this. And the prophet SAW Selim said zikalala, the remembrance of a lot. Now, this remembrance, you know, just the mere repetitive repetition of words, no matter how sacred, the words are, does not look like it would be better than all of this.

00:41:15--> 00:42:15

But this is the remembrance of Allah which means that constant awareness, constant awareness, have Allah subhanaw taala it is your constant feeding of his presence, your constant feeding or his presence was footprint which will produce what constant maraca constant mindfulness of Allah subhanaw taala, this constant mindfulness of Allah must be superior to anything else, because everything else will be the produce of this mindfulness have a lot of constant mindfulness of Allah subhanaw taala. So amoda head in the battlefield, may have lapses of mindfulness may transgress and Mujahid can transgress sometimes or not, yeah, it can transgress can oppress can arise. But one

00:42:15--> 00:43:03

who's constantly mindful of what he transgress in his head, when the have, you know, lack of horseshoe and his Salah when he show off, who in his suburb? None. So that is why they can in this sense, which is your constant mindfulness, have Allah subhanaw taala must be superior to anything else, as the hobbyist indicated. But that does not mean that the vicar of ilosone is, is the mere Vicar of at least and is not praiseworthy, or reward worthy, the thick of a dissent, even

00:43:05--> 00:43:29

from heart that is absent is the Praiseworthy, that is terribly bad, that in itself, the remembrance of that he said, but it certainly will not be that praiseworthy and would not have that great reward without the presence of the heart and without the mindfulness have the knifes

00:43:31--> 00:44:10

Okay, so, the there are two other points that are important here to mention when it comes to making tobacco, you know, he put in ABA as a prerequisite of the fact current zacher. And then he put the fat quarter and he put on top of the fat quarter acre, but he's called in all of these men acid, right? These are men azido set at the Stations of the wayfarers, right? The Stations of the wayfarers. So the current avec or are in this sense, man as it bizarrely just meant as

00:44:12--> 00:44:14

part of the federal government as

00:44:18--> 00:44:27

they are to some extent monetize it, but in addition to be monetize it, they are the necessary gear for the entire journey.

00:44:29--> 00:44:30

You know, all of the other

00:44:31--> 00:44:39

part dependent Taco Bell, taco sub, quote, you know, horseshoe Raja

00:44:40--> 00:44:47

Cove, you know, all of the other menagerie of the you know, reliance or fear.

00:44:49--> 00:44:57

Repentance are dependent on perfect current as output. So the RVD or necessary gear

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

you know, on this path

00:45:00--> 00:45:25

through this journey, this enter journey, that's the necessary gear that you have to keep all the time and they are in a sense the epistemic constants of the past the epistemic constant the source of acquisition of knowledge necessary for the journey, you know, so, these are the epistemic constants out of this path.

00:45:27--> 00:45:32

They must go hand in hand. They are not just

00:45:33--> 00:46:00

stations, as I said, but they need to be present all the time and they must go hand in hand for that good was the fact good. That's why a bursary Rahim Allah said masala and Allah Allah, yeah, it was one of the two factorial two factorial, two factorial. In fact, God will not opponent pulu had hatanaka that this the people of knowledge, you know,

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

had, I may have translated this as the men of knowledge, I sent it to you, right? The men of knowledge.

00:46:09--> 00:46:16

I sent it as the people of knowledge, okay, because the correct translation is the people who have knowledge. So because it could be men or women,

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

the people of knowledge

00:46:22--> 00:46:51

mezzetta knowledge, continue to augment the effect code with the fact current effect code with that code. They supplement this with that they augment this with that. And they continue to implore the hearts this peak, until the heart spoke to them spoke back to them, until the heart spoke wisdom back to the you know, so or so.

00:46:53--> 00:47:47

This is very beautiful, because he's a And is he was he is he was remarkable. He is just like a remarkable seeker. He's saying that the factor and the factor must go hand in hand that you know, forget about the argue the argument concerning the superiority of the factor or superiority of the vector, they supplement each other, they go hand in hand, they must augment each other. So the effect could without perfect code, reflection without the vector invocation taken to heart is inoperative. It does not operate in your heart, it does not produce, it's ineffective, it's inefficient, does not produce changes, and does not tree formula does not reshape you, because it's

00:47:47--> 00:48:21

just an intellectual cognitive function, it does not move beyond this to impact your spirituality, its impact to the other aspects of your being the emotional, psychological, spiritual aspects of your being. So, the factor without the record is only a cognitive thing that is that that is good to produce thought convictions, but does not produce changes in your spirituality and the in your behavior.

00:48:22--> 00:48:27

Same time to find code, that code without the fact code

00:48:28--> 00:48:38

is deficient. Because it becomes a mirror surface of the tongue and is deficient and it does not bring you closer and it does not

00:48:41--> 00:48:47

produce more certainty in your heart.

00:48:50--> 00:48:51


00:48:54--> 00:48:58

Then, I guess I guess that's that's, you know, that's what I wanted to say here.

00:48:59--> 00:49:04

That vector and the fact God must continue to be

00:49:06--> 00:49:27

you know, must continue to go exist so that you could reap the benefits have both to the court and the court. So to confirm that effect korfin at effect Cora tala what kuramoto remembrance is superior to reflection for reflection is a pursuit of something and remembrance is finding it.

00:49:29--> 00:49:32

And then he said what apnea to detect core serasa to hear

00:49:34--> 00:49:49

the remembering stands on three pillars had indefatigable over benefiting from the exhortation and I will just read this because just read it and explain it lightly because everything afterwards is easier.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

So he sat near to two vectors Rafa, Toshi and interferon are benefiting from the exhortation was Uppsala

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

insight insight for recognition of the lessons that Allah sends you was a thorough besotted figure and reaping the fruits of reflection like he said, that could lead to found the lever to benefit from the exhortation or human happenings.

00:50:20--> 00:50:35

de la mina la si la ilaha illa cannot purchase on Manila la Yes, data B is known as de la madre socrata So, in the Hadith of the prophets of Salaam said whenever I

00:50:37--> 00:51:20

am optimistic General, whenever after receive some overheads I exaltation, it is a blessing. It is a bounty favor from Allah, Allah that was gifted to him in Camila, happy shock, if he receives it with gratitude, how do you receive it with the gratitude of metal out of the wood chakra, have a family of the wood in gratitude, act upon it, receive it and act upon it, that is how you receive it with gratitude, then it's a favor, it's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala if you receive it with gratitude, whatever cannot hurt and minify it becomes a last play against him a loss proof against that you received this moment ever, and you did not

00:51:22--> 00:51:28

accept it with gratitude and he did not act upon it would be a play against

00:51:30--> 00:51:41

prefer us without against you. He has data behind his map so that he would increase in sin, and the where's the love will be at La is hotter. And so the loss, anger

00:51:42--> 00:51:43


00:51:44--> 00:52:07

and was anger with him increases. So this is an interferon beta every Saturday, Emperor is the insight for the recognition of the lessons, all of the good and bad things that happen to you when around you and to be people, you know, benefiting from the lessons that are lost, Karnataka is sending you in all of his decrees that is important. So there are

00:52:08--> 00:52:25

there is the verbal, oral or whatever. And there is the more ever that you're receiving all the time, but you are not basically catching, you're not catching many of us catch them over the oromo ever, you know if they're if we do,

00:52:26--> 00:53:19

but we don't catch them either license to us all the time, your failures, your you know, your defeats, and good things that happened to you and bad things that happened to you and around you to other people and all of these decrees of Allah subhanaw taala they are full of lessons and he's saying that those people that the beneath the vector South Africa that the factory stands on those three pillars benefiting from those Noah is over variable mama has this, you know good speeches, and also benefiting from the practical actual lessons that you receive all the time, that are embodied in the decrees have Allah subhanaw taala

00:53:20--> 00:53:58

and then was where Zafar will be summer this summer in secret reaping the fruits of reflection. So without those, you know mama eyes, it is your meditation and your self reflection, you could reap the fruits of your self reflection. So it's a triangle here. It's a like a tripod. So the tripod has those three legs. One is the actual moment that comes to you through the decrees of Allah and His dispensations in yourself and your surroundings. The other one is the actually the verbal note that he received

00:54:00--> 00:54:17

from the preaching, and the third leg of the tripod is heal the reaping the fruits of your meditation and self reflection. And when he said when am I even tougher albula

00:54:18--> 00:54:24

baldassari Saraswati Asha, benefiting from the exhortation which is one of the three pillars

00:54:25--> 00:54:32

depends upon three things besides that if the party Li had the pressing urgency for it,

00:54:33--> 00:54:35

the pressing urgency for it.

00:54:36--> 00:54:43

Do You Do you see the difference between how water tastes when you're thirsty and when you're not thirsty?

00:54:44--> 00:54:49

You know, if you're not thirsty and you drink a cup of water, it

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

doesn't taste good at all. But when you're thirsty and you drink like a sip of water, even if it is not cold at all.

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

Face length, the best thing you could have ever put in your mouth.

00:55:04--> 00:55:35

So that is the karela habit, you will benefit from the exhortation if you come to the examination, knowing your need for it, the pressing urgency, while I'm an eyeball was blind blindness to the flaws of the exhort, or blindness to the flaws of the preacher. That is one of our biggest attractions for you know that that hurts us so much because the preachers, you know,

00:55:37--> 00:56:42

like, you know, I have may have said this before, that often times it is hard to find the doctor and who's not sick. And then the, when you go to a doctor who's sick, you have less confidence in the doctor because had he been good, he would have taken care of himself, but forget about his sickness, take his medicine, and this regard his sickness, take his medicine, in this regard his sickness, you know, benefit from the winds and disregard has flaws, if otherwise accepted to be a bridge for you to then on, you know, bridge over to him for you to cross the agenda, then cross the bridge, you should worry about getting to your to your destination for Don't be preoccupied with the destiny of

00:56:42--> 00:56:57

anyone else or everyone else. So that is extremely important. The llama and hybrid was blind to the flaws of the preacher would be thinking what are the what why he then remembrance of the promises and warnings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:56:58--> 00:57:07

So, when you come to the noise and you listen, this is hollub This is haram. One who does not have awareness of it, why are they Why is one who does not fear that you know,

00:57:11--> 00:57:13

in a theoretical limit half of

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

the certainly there is

00:57:18--> 00:57:19


00:57:21--> 00:58:04

Certainly there is a proof there is a sign in this one who fears from the tournament of the hereafter for one who fears from the tournament of the hereafter and sort of hood. So one who does not fear from the tournament of the year after he can listen to listen to that entire sooner. Listen to all you know, to the center all of the stories of the people have heard and the people have saw the hand the people have no one and it doesn't cause doesn't change them It does not affect them or impact them in any way. But knowing the remembrance of the promises and warnings of Allah is important for one to benefit from them.

00:58:05--> 00:58:23

And then he said we're in number to stop several April to be Saraswati and Shia hydralic refitted a year with Salama Tibetan Agra with the Emperor. This these practical lessons that are Lawson's you that are scattered that are

00:58:26--> 00:59:03

omnipresent in your surroundings. You know, they are all over the place, and are Lawson's you those all the time? How do you benefit from them, the higher the luck, the vitality of the intellect. This is someone who's not, you know, things do not he does not allow things just to slip by him to just pass him up, or to pass by him. he examines them, he examines everything that happens to him and to the people around him to be basically deduced the lessons from the vitality of the intellect,

00:59:04--> 00:59:42

are manifested as the recognition of the days. The recognition of the days here is the recognition of hallas dispensations, your own days, which is that increases and decreases that you accrue through the days. But it could also be and it may, you know, that may be the stronger explanation of this. because keep in mind, this is the speech of Mr. Holloway, so we can't really know what's in his mind. But yeah, if you're a GM or a MOBA, you know, as a must Kannada, seven

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


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

coming up in a

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


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

are synonyms in a common

01:00:04--> 01:00:08

a common law when a person comes upon me and

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


01:00:19--> 01:00:23

person so since the beginning of Southern fried mozzarella, very sad for me to wake

01:00:25--> 01:00:25


01:00:29--> 01:00:30

the next day

01:00:33--> 01:00:35

masala comienza campaign?

01:00:37--> 01:00:37


01:00:44--> 01:00:46

Moosa Yeah. Tina

01:00:56--> 01:01:03

is this isn't the beginning of sort of the brain where a person Musa Biya Tina, do an average come up

01:01:04--> 01:01:05

with a Columbia.

01:01:06--> 01:01:58

And we have sent Mussa, with our kayak with our science and athletes Come on or bring your people out from darkness to light with a guru am Allah remind them of am Allah or am Allah, the days of the days of Allah here means what? All of the dispensations of Allah concerning the previous nations, all of the dispensations of a law concerning the previous nations, those are called the days of Allah subhanaw taala. So the dispensation is of a lie concerning the previous nations is just not about the previous nations. It's about, you know, the dispositions of Allah, that concerning all the people around you, here, your family members, your friends, your co workers, everything, all the

01:01:58--> 01:02:14

dispensations of Allah concerning the good doers, and the backdoors, the believers and disbelievers. These are things that you could benefit from the recognition of these dispensations and the recognition of the meanings of these dispensations.

01:02:17--> 01:02:49

Then what he said was salamah, tominaga varad cure from unbefitting ones and biases, you will not benefit from these lessons and less you have cured yourself from unbefitting wants and biases. Well, number two to know formula to figure out this LSAT, now the third leg of the tripod, which is reaping the benefits of reflection, he said harvesting the fruit of reflection depends on three things one littleness of hope, which is visceral.

01:02:50--> 01:02:50

You know,

01:02:52--> 01:03:55

that's hope in longevity, you know, so live in this and hope to have little hope in this life in the you know, longevity in this life. The other one is that I'm going for an reflection on the forehand mode for parameter reflection on the parameter. And the third one, which would require three or four lectures by itself is tiller to hold on. Limiting mixing that's mixing with people you know, hyper connectedness, social media, all of that limiting mixing quota, what many wishful thinking what the hell look at attachments, the other event of law was Shiva satiety, fullness of the stomach, when men sleep five things corrupt your heart and destroy your

01:03:57--> 01:04:01

destroying your productivity, destroy your your basically

01:04:04--> 01:04:27

your productivity and curtail your you from reaching your goals. So, they corrupt everything for you, they just destroy you, these are five destructive things, and they all belong to that category of mobile hat permissible things, you know, except for tarrlok sometimes could become prohibited and you know,

01:04:30--> 01:04:46

depends on too many could become prohibited. They could all border on prohibited but they are essentially permissible things. They are basically permissible things mixing with people wishful thinking,

01:04:48--> 01:04:48


01:04:49--> 01:04:57

tala which is attachments to other than Allah subhanaw taala satiety fullness of the stomach and sleep

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

Every you know,

01:05:02--> 01:05:12

everything in Melbourne moderation is good. So, we all of these things in moderation are good to many may not

01:05:13--> 01:06:06

be good unless it is justifiable. So to have hope in the mirror, forgive me forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala would be justifiable if you seek His forgiveness, that among his forgiveness, why while seeking it, but it's not if it is not justifiable, then it is certainly blameworthy. And the rest of them also should be held in moderation. I am sorry that, you know, we don't have the time to discuss any of these but, but just reflect on the reflect on this particular piece. This is extremely practical for all of us, we need to reflect on this particular point. He said that you will not be able to reap the benefits of reflection unless you limit those five things. mixing with

01:06:06--> 01:06:09

people wishful thinking,

01:06:10--> 01:06:20

attachments to other than Allah, fullness of the stomach and sleep which is which means extra sleep sleepiness.

01:06:22--> 01:06:26

Or, you know, laziness could probably have suffered by electronic
