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

consola Today we'll go over a bubble

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

of a chapter in grief and Tammam in the session.

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

The first

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

Shahada, we recommend Allah said Christmas,

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

you know how he divided the book, you know how in every chapter he divides this the basically every chapter into three categories.

00:00:35--> 00:00:49

So whenever he talks about mahaska, for instance or self reckoning, he talks to you about Maha Sabha for the public Bahasa for the elites, you know, this the select few and Maha Sabha for the topmost

00:00:50--> 00:01:26

or the most special servants of Allah Subhana, WA Tada, and how he divides everything into three parts, every one of those categories is divided into three parts. What, certainly, things don't happen like this and can reality. But he tries to do this, like not everything is divided into three, you know, parts and reality. And not every one of those concepts can be divided into three parts. But what he tries to do, basically, is to facilitate

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

learning,

00:01:30--> 00:01:45

you know, he's trying to effectively teach us. So that's why he divides things in this way. And then he divided the entire book into 10 divisions, and every division is divided into 10 stations.

00:01:46--> 00:01:58

And that is also to facilitate our learning to facilitate our learning. So, what we started with is pessimal layout or the division of the beginnings.

00:01:59--> 00:02:12

And now, we will be starting with this algebra, which is the division of the gates. So the 10 divisions that he has in the book mirazur serine are the Stations of the

00:02:13--> 00:03:12

seekers, or the wayfarers. The 10 stations that he has are the first one. We're done with the first one by the way, we're done with 10 stations, and the 10 stations that we just finished last time with Babel somehow or audition or hearing is a small bit is the division of it without or the beginnings and then we will go over personnel above that the division of gates and after Bismillah baptismal Mohammed at dealings, transactions dealings. And after Christmas Mr. mellott will have bismil Aflac morals after personal aphylla personal or soon foundations after personal also pessimists out there valleys and after pessimists out there, the division of valleys then we will go

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

over the division of Western interstates and after that, we will go over the revision of it when I add it when I uh, when I add is plural of what a

00:03:25--> 00:03:38

different form we lie, you know. So when I add or the plural of what I uh, you know, what i what i comes from, it's the state of being overly

00:03:39--> 00:03:54

Translated by some people as sainthood or you know, what a is translated a saint, but it is it is a loaded term comes from a different religious background. Therefore, it is loaded with connotations that may or may not

00:03:55--> 00:04:13

agree or may or may not be in harmony with our own definition and concept of what I am therefore, we try to avoid those loaded terms. And we use your, you know, sometimes strength is translated as friendship.

00:04:15--> 00:04:20

It's been like an intimate friend of God when he an intimate friend of God.

00:04:22--> 00:04:43

And then after Christmas, what I asked we would go over the division of a haka and realities, and after bismil haka, we'll go over the division of any hyak the endings, so he started by Peshmerga at the beginnings, he ended by pasman at the end things and it is

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

the it's an ascending order.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

And then, you know, inshallah, today we'll start Bismillah wherever the division of gates

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

We will go over

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

you know without the microphone it takes a lot of effort by the way to shout

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

we'll go over the

00:05:11--> 00:05:23

the first chapter in this division, the division of lab lab or the gates which is Bob and the chapter on grief or housing

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

and when we come back from our Ramadan break

00:05:29--> 00:06:11

we will carry on with the division of gates. Why is that why are we not doing any more? Because care before the Ramadan break because we still have one you know Hanukkah next week inshallah, because not next weekend on Saturday, we will have higher than the fast in fact, we will have menstrual and postpartum bleeding and the rulings that pertain to menstrual postpartum bleeding and that will take the two sessions and keep in mind we have been behind on fat by one session. So we will have been ahead

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

on the scale and behind on by one session. So next time we will give the two sessions the fact and then both the scan

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

Will

00:06:26--> 00:06:32

you know will be parallel to each other in terms of the number of sessions that we had.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

So remember how are we rockin mahalo tada

00:06:37--> 00:06:53

ceflix land and how do we rock and roll lotta Allah said here the division of gates who are machismo Astra to avoid while he was in one hole for a strap, one who saw what in combat was what what our tobacco Raja one Drogba

00:06:54--> 00:06:54

and

00:06:55--> 00:07:02

these are the 10 divisions and husband is grief and how his fear

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

and his family is concerned to be emotional to be concerned. Allahu sure as humility

00:07:11--> 00:07:29

and these are basically very crude, rough translations because they're, you know, each one of those concepts needs to be explained not just translated one word translation and who is humility alahabad is capitulation or surrender

00:07:30--> 00:07:52

you know, declaration of defeat and surrender capitulation as though it is asceticism, renunciation of the donia or asceticism, and what are his pious caution at the battle is dedication. Or Raja is hope urraca is aspiration.

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

So, these are the 10 above or the 10 chapters 10 stations that we will be going over inshallah.

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

And then he starts by bubble housing or the chapter on grief. And he says, Palo Alto Del Toro lo fi domina Demi has an

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

alarm. It says the turn back while their eyes overflowed with tears out of fear while their eyes overflowed with tears out of fear. Out of grief I'm sorry.

00:08:29--> 00:08:40

While their eyes overflowed with tears out of grief. You know whether the last one doesn't sort of tober what Oliveira is a toccata Mira

00:08:41--> 00:08:46

Mira, Kumara Ito lo what are the veena is Mira Hong Kong

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

miracle malita voila, toffee domina dama has an allergy to my own ficou

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

Allah subhanaw taala was speaking about the people who are exempted that we will not be responsible for

00:09:02--> 00:09:17

not joining the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the battle. And he said, of those who will not be responsible, who will be exempt will be pardoned than forgiven. Those who came to you and asked you to basically provide them with

00:09:20--> 00:09:47

you know, means of transportation, you know, to provide them with a beast of burden to basically join you in the battle. And you said I don't find anything, you know, I can't I can't even afford you any means of transportation. Then they turned back walked away and their eyes were overflowing with tears because they could not find

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

what they could spend them the cause of Allah subhanaw taala they couldn't afford to spend anything in the cause of Allah subhanaw taala. So those are people that basically gave

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

To the prophet SAW, so I'm hoping that they will join him in the battle.

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

And it was a perilous campaign.

00:10:09--> 00:10:19

Dangerous one. So the they wanted to sacrifice themselves and when they were told that no you cannot come with us

00:10:21--> 00:10:43

they did not walk away rejoicing in the opportunity, you know, this is basically their their they will not be subject to harm they will. This is a perilous campaign or expedition they will not be subject to harm and they are forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala, the Prophet told me your pardon, I can take you with me.

00:10:45--> 00:11:12

So anyone with any weakness of faith would be rejoicing. In this opportunity, you know, that I lucked out, you know, I did not have to do this arise, I was for forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala, I was forgiven by God, but those are people that have faith. And then they walked away with their eyes overflowing with fears that they cannot join. The prophet SAW Solomon this perilous and dangerous and risky campaign.

00:11:15--> 00:11:30

So they were grieving over the fact that they were unable to spend and the cause of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's why the chef here, use this verse to tell us that grief is a station that the believers will go through

00:11:33--> 00:11:50

has already defined the station and we will talk about, you know, whether this is a station that the believers need to go through, must go through or are just destined to go through, even though it is not necessarily

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

prescribed for them.

00:11:54--> 00:12:11

It is not basically demanded of them. They're not encouraged to go through it. And the perpetuity of this station is certainly harmful and not

00:12:14--> 00:12:18

has never been praised by Allah subhanaw taala and has never been asked of us.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

So he says that

00:12:22--> 00:12:29

adherence in oral hasn't taught German effectively out so funada Montana wha Hoo selasa Raja

00:12:31--> 00:12:36

Raja grief is the feeling of agony over something that was missed

00:12:37--> 00:12:43

out as Soufan, Allah, tala, or frustration over something that's unattainable.

00:12:44--> 00:12:51

What is the NASA Jet and it is three levels. So feeling of agony over something that was missed.

00:12:54--> 00:13:18

An opportunity that was missed an opportunity to please Allah subhanaw taala that was missed. Certainly, we're not talking about frivolous grief. We're not talking about grief over the donia where this station, although grief over the dunya something that we are destined to also as human beings, because of our weakness in our nature, and because of the nature of dystonia, and the unpredictability of this dunya.

00:13:21--> 00:14:12

But the grief that we are mainly talking about here is grief, over missing an opportunity to please Allah subhanaw taala or grief over this opportunity being unattainable to you. So if you missed it, you're motivated, you have pain, agony, you're angry that you have anguish over the fact that you've missed that opportunity to please Allah subhanaw taala in the past, and it is unattainable like those Sahaba that came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asking him to take them with him to the battle and he will we were told that they cannot come they cannot join. This is that as to follow Montana. This is basically anguish angle. So it means frustration here, over something that's

00:14:12--> 00:14:17

unattainable. They were frustrated because they can't go out with a prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

So that is alhazmi that we are talking about here.

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

Keep in mind, like I am talks about this in detail in my data set a key and he talks about the fact that we have never been asked to basically visit that station, let alone stay in it. We've never been asked even to visit the station, let alone stay in it. But it is every believer is bound to go through that station. Periodically, sometimes you will go through that station and you're bound to have a taste of it almost all the time.

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

Because a believer is someone who has concern not only for himself but for for humanity, that isn't a Lost Planet Allah say to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam la la cabeza, nepsac, Allah kuno meaning, and Suraj Shara la la cabeza, nepsac Allah kuno momineen II, he perhaps you will kill yourself out of grief that they that they

00:15:25--> 00:16:16

have no faith or they did not accept faith that they are not believers here you're you're about to destroy yourself out of grief. And in sort of careful Allah tobacco knapsack. So, in the Marina, we have dcsf. So, this was repeated, and the prophets Allah was told several times, you are about to destroy yourself out of grief over them, you are about to destroy yourself out of grief over them. Why because the profit was almost a human being the profit recognize that, you know, although the salaries may not be scientifically traceable, but the meaning is as appropriate, that the profits are seldom used to say, or should have gotten a lot better. And I, you know, testify before you that

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

all of this, I bet all of these

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

slaves of Allah subhanaw taala, are brothers.

00:16:25--> 00:16:38

And certainly that the concept is a valid concept. We all came out from the womb of Hawa, probably Alanna, so grieving over the condition of humanity is something

00:16:39--> 00:16:47

every believer should go through. And the condition of humanity is never that.

00:16:48--> 00:16:52

Great, so that you can escape from that grief,

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

that type of grief.

00:16:56--> 00:17:04

You will always have a taste of that type of grief because because of the conditions of humanity, here grieving over, you know,

00:17:06--> 00:17:38

the calamities that befall human beings and certainly, like someone with a heart that standard with a heart that is sensitive, he will always have some, some or Another cause of grief, you know, the child of their neighbor. And this is whether you're whether they're Muslim, not Muslim, you know, the child of my neighbors was diagnosed with cancer, within that cause your grief for for some for some considerable time. And as long as you're

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

you encountered things of that nature, then you are bound, you are destined to that station to visit it,

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

and to have a taste of station of grief.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

But it is not,

00:17:56--> 00:18:21

you know the grief that we were forbidden from although we will have a taste of this grief all the time. And although we are bound to the station of grief, we were forbidden from grief and Soraka. Marana law says well after he knew what it was, I don't want to Malala and Quantum momineen and do not we can and do not grieve when you are superior while you're superior. If you are true believers

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

if you are true believers, so we were forbidden from grief.

00:18:27--> 00:18:58

It's not something desirable. We were forbidden from grief. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to seek refuge in Allah from grief alone. Many are the becoming alamy one husband or ally seek refuge in You from an anxiety and grief and anxiety and distress, alarm and grief. So could it be something desirable and the prophet SAW Selim is seeking refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from something that is desirable? No.

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

Well, any believer escaped from the station of grief. No, how could it be undesirable and a believer will never escape from it.

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

It's undesirable, it is forbidden.

00:19:15--> 00:19:41

So we're talking about natural grief. Natural grief is where you know you're bound to the station because of your nature, because of the nature of the donia. And because of your weaknesses, and sometimes because of your strength, because you're tender hearted, you're kind hearted and the calamities that before the people around you, all the people around you that calamities that befall humanity,

00:19:42--> 00:19:50

impact you, in this way, cause you grief like they used to cause the Prophet sallallahu wasallam grief.

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

So, that that is the difference. Grief then is is desirable in the sense of being

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

In a manifestation of something else,

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

not desirable in and of itself. Because a lot does not want to grieve for us,

00:20:10--> 00:20:49

not desirable in and of itself, but it is desirable as a manifestation of something else. What was grief, a manifestation of in the case of those companions who wanted to go out with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it's a manifestation of their faith is a manifestation of their sacrifice. Some manifestation of their love of the prophet SAW Selim, they did not want to stay behind and let the prophet SAW Selim go out to that dangerous, risky expedition, without them accompanying the prophet SAW Selim, perhaps they can defend them to perhaps they can protect it.

00:20:53--> 00:20:59

So that so this is a this is desirable as a manifestation not desirable in itself.

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

But then it becomes completely forbidden when it overtakes you and that is why Allah said Well,

00:21:07--> 00:21:36

no, do not weaken and do not grief, the grief that overtakes you, that grief that causes you despair, is forbidden, and it is unbefitting God believers, believers will not be subject to this grief. That is why when Allah subhanaw taala used to say this that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam well attacks on Allah him walk Fujairah hockaday momineen taco fever mmm Cruella de la Vela taco Filipe mmm Kuru, that.

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

Allah de PUE Surat Al anon.

00:21:41--> 00:21:47

Maka gerakan Mini in Surat Al hijra, he said, he used to say to him, Do not grieve over them.

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

Direct money and lower your window humidity, to the believers and so on.

00:21:56--> 00:22:07

All of these, all of these prohibitions that they are against this type of grief that causes despair, a lot like a bath, your knapsack you're about to destroy yourself, don't destroy yourself out of grief.

00:22:09--> 00:22:36

You're bound to grieve. You're bound to have concern for them. You're bound to be sad about their conditions, because you are their brother was called, remember the brother of art? How could the brother of art not grieve over that condition of art? How could the brother of sales of mood not grieve over the condition of the mood? You know, remember in Surah, Yaseen Elijah calm era moon demographer, alira

00:22:37--> 00:23:27

mean, this righteous man said when he was in, you know, between life and death, he was saying, he later called me out the moon, I hope that my people had known, they may offer the Arab biryani mineral makara mean, what, how my Lord had forgiven me and honored me. I wish they had known, you know, now he's seeing his place in paradise. And then he is wishing that his people who would who has people who rejected faith would get a chance to see how Allah subhanaw taala honored him so that they may accept faith and so that they may join him in paradise. That That should be the feeling of every believing man or woman, you want all of humanity, you want all of your brothers and sisters in

00:23:27--> 00:23:27

humanity

00:23:30--> 00:23:38

to be in Paradise, not necessarily to join us in paradise because we don't know May Allah subhanaw taala make it our abode.

00:23:40--> 00:23:49

He had seen his his seat or in Paradise and he was wishing that they would join him in paradise. So

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

then,

00:23:52--> 00:24:35

then that's the difference between the grief that Allah wants for us and the grief that a lot of love is not wonderful for us, our loved ones, the grief, that's a manifestation of something else, some other strengths, you know, your kind heartedness, your faith, your sacrifice, you know, your your aspiration, your raba in pleasing Allah subhanaw taala. And when you're kept back from pleasing Allah, then you have this frustration and grief. And we will talk about, you know, this in some more detail. But fara is what Allah wants for us. joy, happiness is what Allah subhanaw taala wants for us. The last one without assistance already has been put before the lay of the rock motif of Israeli

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

confetti of Lahore. Hieronymus Mao called the fidelity of the rock Mati say, in the bounty of a lot in his mercy fabrisonic of the Franco hyaluron made my own in that let them rejoice. It is better than everything we accumulate, it's better than the money, the wealth the staff does everything they can accumulate, called the public effect.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

very competitive for Rahu Hieronymus Mau

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

fara was mentioned in the Quran several times in the negative context right? what

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

he told our home very,

00:25:14--> 00:26:00

very happy man dominant color has been the metadata him very many times. But if you really examine every time product was with, this is the ally staring us, funny Afro, let them rejoice let them be happy Allah wants that for us. law does not want greed for us, except when it is a manifestation of something that is desirable, not for itself but as a manifestation. But Allah once fought off for us. Whenever fara was was condemned, it was not a virus in the sense of happiness, then benign happiness. This farahan the sense of malignant exaltation, malignant, you know,

00:26:02--> 00:26:31

boasting, arrogance, pride, you're also Farah. You're also exalting over your knowledge, your exalting over your wealth, your exalting over your power. Every time an accordion file was condemned, it was conducted because of this. So like in sort of pauses in the story of Cartoon for instance, when they said to him, it's parallel como la hora en la la la la

00:26:32--> 00:26:52

behold when his people said to him lotta frog don't exalt for Allah does not like the exaltations they were talking to qarun the one who said in the multi to alignment, I am the one who said I was given this I was given all of this because of my knowledge because of my skills because of my you know, in this position

00:26:56--> 00:27:28

and not recognize the favor the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala on him when Allah subhanaw taala says For instance, about the moon FFP that's the opposite picture from the meaning that came to the prophet SAW someone from the companions that came to the prophet SAW Salaam and asked him to go out with him and the turning the way with their eyes overflowing with tears when they knew that they cannot risk their lives for the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. But on the you know, the opposite picture of this is the one ar 15

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

whether in Serato balls or losses into sub cassata into sub Tomasi button yet

00:27:37--> 00:27:40

in went to SQL Server 20 Oh be our way

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

into

00:27:43--> 00:28:03

home, went to Serbia como si baton yaku Imran, I'm in Kabul otavalo home, ferryhill interceptor Hassan Tito interceptor Hassan and so on, if Hazara befalls you if a good thing befalls you, so it will distress them it will leave them into sepco, Ciba.

00:28:04--> 00:28:44

yaku. has an umbrella and they would say and if Boosie Bara calamity befalls you, they will say we have taken our, our mother in our own into our own our own hands, we've taken our precautions before coloca has an American public data 131 and the turn away rejoicing or the turn back rejoicing. So those are people who you know, watch from a distance. And then if the the believers are victorious, they are saddened by the victory because they were not part of it.

00:28:46--> 00:29:14

And if the believers if a calamity befalls the believers, you know, when to sip Tomasi baton gurukula has an umbrella cover they will say we have taken precautions we have not joined them. It's good that we've taken our matter into our own hands and we did not listen to them and we did not go out with them. Taking our precautions were our own very own and they turn away rejoicing, rejoicing that they lucked out rejoicing that they were not part of it.

00:29:16--> 00:29:23

And sometimes although we may not be just we may not be just as bad but sometimes we we have

00:29:24--> 00:29:32

you know some of that as well. You know, I remember Abubakar how to be a seventh century soccer player Rahim Allah

00:29:33--> 00:29:52

serais sakata Rahim Allah he was a student of myrtleford Cafe maruf was one of the greatest ascetics. One time he was asked about maruf how much maruf knows, you know, how much margin of error about the knowledge of myrtleford cafe?

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

And he said we had you come up with an invalid masala la maruf

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

What the, you know, what the enemy B

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

saw?

00:30:07--> 00:30:36

Except for that which maruf had already attained, you know, so, you know, why are you asking me about maruf knowledge, all this knowledge that we see is to attain the, the status of model or to reach the station, that model had already reached. So, maroof was the teacher of Sarah sokrati has actually reported that Sarah sakata, one day

00:30:39--> 00:30:53

there was like a little girl who had a part in her hand that it fell from her hand and broke. So, she was the stress model for the cafe went and bought her another one and gave it to her.

00:30:55--> 00:31:05

Sorry sakata So, maruf said to him, you know, he was impressed the maruf was impressed by his kind heartedness. And he said to him bocadillo like adonia

00:31:06--> 00:31:11

May Allah make the donia hated to you or May Allah make you hate the dunya

00:31:13--> 00:31:25

and sorry sir, used to say afterwards called Luma and a fee helium and Baraka RT model of everything that I have today is because of the blessings of this application of models.

00:31:27--> 00:31:41

But at any rate, you know, going back to set a socket, a socket, he said, Come to Hamdulillah, hemara, estructural, la minha, Monza serafina cetera, I said that hamdulillah one time and ever since,

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

I have been asking a lot, forgive me for for saying and humbled Allah

00:31:49--> 00:31:59

for 30 years for say 100 that time for the last 30 years, have been asking a lot of Forgive me, how could you ask a lot forgive you for saying hamdulillah

00:32:01--> 00:32:18

So, the story is, you know, there was a fire in the market and set a socket, they had a store in the market. And when the fire erupted in the market, someone came to serve as a coffee and he said to him, the whole market was ablaze,

00:32:19--> 00:32:24

you know, destroyed by the fire, except your store.

00:32:25--> 00:32:34

And then he said 100 law that his store was not burned. And then he felt so guilty, that he did not actually care for all

00:32:36--> 00:32:50

of the other merchants in the market or all of his neighbors, who lost their stores. And he said 100 Allah, where the the appropriate response would have been in at 11 00, not 100 Allah

00:32:51--> 00:32:57

although 100 Allah we say 100 line, but in every condition,

00:32:58--> 00:33:07

but the appropriate response at that time is to say another layer of the road, to feel the pain of your fellow Muslims to feel the pain of your neighbors.

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

And

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

before you

00:33:15--> 00:33:20

say Alhamdulillah for the survival of your property,

00:33:22--> 00:33:26

anyway, so, that is when in this case,

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

exalting

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

is condemned in the Quran.

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

And we probably should proceed now.

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

But anyway, go over the rest of the,

00:33:40--> 00:33:47

the talk about fara, you will always find, you know, furama documents or on eBay that

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

they rejoice and that knowledge they have, you will always find

00:33:54--> 00:34:03

for that knowledge. Shea had a very heavy metal to until they are inserted and I'm happy they're finally removed until they rejoice in that which they possess

00:34:05--> 00:34:13

or that which they were given. It's talking about knowledge here, you know, exalting over your knowledge, exalting over wealth and and so on.

00:34:15--> 00:34:38

But for the you know, rejoicing in the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala is what Allah wants from us and for us, to show him no matter how big of how to speak of the favors and bounties of your Lord, and that's speaking but it sounded harsh a couple of QA that speaking an action before speaking in words,

00:34:39--> 00:34:44

by being shackled by being grateful, grateful for everything that you are given.

00:34:46--> 00:34:52

Then, when he says that it hurts or grief is three levels that Roger Ola has not

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

met. The first level is the grief of the public and that is the grief of

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

Over negligence and service. That's the first

00:35:04--> 00:35:11

type of grief for the public negligence in service. When you see that you have been negligent that you have

00:35:12--> 00:35:24

fallen, you know, in Masia or you have been negligent in the service of your Lord. That's the first cause. While authority has

00:35:25--> 00:35:40

fallen into the predicament of aloofness, aloofness, Jaffa with a law is you know, the opposite of affinity friendliness own sybilla it is when you're distant and you're this this this

00:35:42--> 00:36:04

befalls you into more distance or more and more Marcy, and takes away from your energy to please Allah subhanaw taala because you have become distant and then when you lose that energy and you fall in the mossy what happens, you become more distant, and a lot distances up.

00:36:11--> 00:36:21

And a lot keeps you away from like, when you fall in mass, even your your punishment will be more massive. And you think I mean, you'll be you'll be you'll be given

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

you may you know of that time.

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

Allah subhanaw taala may open the doors or the gates of everything that's good

00:36:34--> 00:36:57

to you, to keep you away to distract you and to keep you away. So, falling into the predicament of defer or aloofness distinctness from Allah subhanaw taala is something that the believers grieve over and the grieve over their, their, whatever steps they have may have taken that

00:36:58--> 00:37:04

brought them this far took them this far from Allah subhanho

00:37:05--> 00:37:31

wa Taala they are I am and the loss of the days basically every day and that does not just mean days it means also hours it means minutes, it means moments. Every time you you lose meaning, you lose the pleasure of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala that this is something that you should regret. And it causes the believers grief.

00:37:33--> 00:37:45

What dhara just said he has no errata who are holding on to Hydra. And the second level is the grief of the people of resolve an era that people have resolve

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

those are the select few the special

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

and it is over the following.

00:37:54--> 00:38:41

First one is Todd Lockwood worked with the third group, the loss of times in dispersion dispersion in the in the valleys of vanity, dispersion in the valleys of vanity, dispersion in the valleys of pursuits that are sub optimal pursuits, pursuits that take you away from a lot of pursuits that distract you from Allah, all of this dispersion, dispersion of your thoughts, your So, your thoughts are dispersed, your thoughts are not together and the heart will never be together except when it is with has, you know, there may be a lot of the Germania of accountability, togetherness of the heart will always only be with its maker, Pat's natural, you know, that is natural, you will not have your

00:38:41--> 00:38:44

journey except with your maker.

00:38:46--> 00:39:19

An example of this, but the land method and law belongs the greatest example. The example of this is an infant with his mother, you know, he would not feel together unless he is with his mother. Even if his father takes him out, you know, he takes out the child to like an a very pleasant for nice place, gets him ice cream, all of the good stuff that the kid wants. But the kid without the mother being you know, and May Allah subhanaw taala

00:39:21--> 00:39:28

give strength to kids who lose their their mothers and give them solace and serenity and comfort.

00:39:29--> 00:39:33

But if a child, you know even with his father is

00:39:35--> 00:39:53

having the best experience with it, he will always want to figure out where his mother is and will always want you know, and after some time, you know starts to become a little bit agitated, a little bit anxious and wants to see his mother or at least the like. See that he's there somewhere.

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

And then he can carry on with whatever he wants, but this domain yet and Caleb

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

You know this the get together in this

00:40:04--> 00:40:05

whole ism

00:40:06--> 00:40:13

you know of the heart will never be attained except of this heart goes back to its maker and its creator.

00:40:14--> 00:40:51

So Todd Lockwood worked with the founder of the loss of times and dispersion This is something that special people grieve over wahala Steven Neff, sanusha hood, the occupation with other events who the beholding of the true one. You know, when when the knifes the ego has occupied with other than beholding our last panel Todd and watching the last panel data, then that's something we grieve over what it was. And then we also grieve over at SL Leon and herzan distraction from grief.

00:40:52--> 00:40:59

So they grieve over being distracted from grief. distraction from grief could be because of grief.

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

Because the grief that is a desirable as a manifestation of good things, manifestation of belief manifestation of time heartedness is not the grief, the grief over, you know, losing $20 it is not the grief over the dounia it's not the grief over you know, a promotion that you did not get. It is a different type of grief. So that grief could distract you from the grief that he's talking about the station of grief, that vein grief could distract you from the grief, that is an indication of your face and indication of

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

your kind heartedness.

00:41:44--> 00:41:57

That is the sallyann it hasn't and also you could be distracted from grief by the glamours of the dounia and many other things that could distract you from the Praiseworthy grief.

00:41:58--> 00:41:59

Then

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

says here goes back and points out what happened last time.

00:42:06--> 00:42:18

Explain the detail and modality set again and when he talks about the the topmost, the elite, the most elite or the elitist?

00:42:20--> 00:42:24

group. He says what I said it has to mean McDermott has nothing to say.

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

The elites

00:42:27--> 00:43:11

they have nothing to do with stasia grief, they have nothing to do with the station of grief, because they have moved from the station of grief into the station of Riba acceptance, the station of suru joy, the station of Toba Nila serenity these are all different stations, these are all other stations and they are desirable, not just as manifestations they are desirable in and of themselves by Allah subhanaw taala Allah desires for us to take shelter in the station of roba acceptance in the station of Tama, Nina serenity.

00:43:12--> 00:43:20

So, they are desirable in you know for themselves those stations, but this, this is problematic, this statement is still problematic.

00:43:23--> 00:43:55

Because if this nature of grief is desirable for the public, no is this notion of grief desirable for the public, no, it is not desirable, accepted as a manifestation, but as a manifestation, to manifestation of faith manifestation of kind heartedness are the are the topmost or the, you know, the best of the best exam from that station, not bound to visit that station. not destined for that station, no.

00:43:56--> 00:44:15

Even while taking shelter, in the station of river, in the station of submission to the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala tasleem in the station of, you know, to Nina belaz, having serenity with Allah subhanaw taala

00:44:16--> 00:44:36

they are still subject to grief. Because we we have to be critical in our in our reading given the way the scholars are human beings. So, who who's the gold standard? The prophets are solid and the rest of the prophets after him.

00:44:37--> 00:44:53

So when the Prophet was grieving over things cut an Alamo in Tel Aviv. We know that and I'm fine. I'm like, okay, I can avoid amenability late How do we know that it saddens you what they say that what they say saddens him.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

He was grieving. He was being sad because of what they're Taksim

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

rejection, their denial, their lack of acceptance.

00:45:05--> 00:45:09

And then Allah subhanaw taala was trying to comfort them at the last moment that I was studying him

00:45:14--> 00:45:47

for in the home life because the buena cola cannot be Atilla here today, one day it is not about you, it is about me, the Allies telling him it is about my versus my science, they're rejecting my science. They're not saying that you are a liar. They never said that you're a liar. They know that you're not a liar, but they are rejecting my science. I love science and laws versus so and then law like a backyard knapsack, Atletico Romanian phenomena Kabuki on a 30 millimeter, we have dcsf.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

And the other

00:45:51--> 00:46:20

I add where the last panel thought I was talking about the the profit prior to comfort them. Well, the profit wasn't the highest of the highest stations. I mean, no one could be compared to the station of the Prophet Solomon yet he was still subject to those kinds of this, this kind of grief, which is an indication of his concern for humanity, his kind heartedness, his love for humanity. And keep in mind,

00:46:23--> 00:46:43

it is love that you would have for humanity in general. They are the children of your parents. Have I met her well, and then the hate that you have for this belief is the hate of the lovers. The hate of the people that are concerned for

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

their brothers and sisters.

00:46:49--> 00:46:51

Going back to the this issue here.

00:46:53--> 00:46:59

I Jaco didn't iacob What did the What do the last one I thought I say about yaku.

00:47:06--> 00:47:11

vokalia as a follow us for we have item Hosni for work, Avi.

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

And he said, You know what, as a father you serve

00:47:17--> 00:47:21

our Lord makalah as a father used to be able to tie down the fork of him.

00:47:22--> 00:47:24

He said, You know,

00:47:26--> 00:47:37

he anguished over use of over missing use of his eyes turned white, out of grief, his eyes turned white out of this.

00:47:39--> 00:47:48

Professor, whether you know, the people who always like to explain the Qur'an, from the spectacles of science, you know, cataracts.

00:47:51--> 00:48:04

The whiteness of the eyes, you know, cataract causes whiteness of the of the pupil of the eyes, you know, the cataract can be caused by grief.

00:48:05--> 00:48:18

That could be one of the triggers of characters grief. Should we say that this is actually what happened to you? We don't know it, we don't know. I mean, if someone wants to believe that, that's fine.

00:48:19--> 00:48:28

You know, so this person was an ophthalmologist, if you're an ophthalmologist and you really would like to believe this about the various that that is fine, it is not in conflict with the verse.

00:48:29--> 00:48:34

But you know, what, is it dangerous when you're trying to make this effect?

00:48:35--> 00:48:44

When you're try our way when your interpretation is in conflict with all of the interpretations of the previous

00:48:45--> 00:48:54

scholars or the Buddhist theory and and the Sahaba that have been and you think that you were just given that disclosure? And all of us have Masada Minitab

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

words the private of it, and it's just your own disclosure.

00:49:02--> 00:49:21

Yet, if there is no conflict, and with the previous interpretations, no conflict with linguistic implications. Anyone want to believe something that that's fine for you? It's it is not a problem there is no conflict and it is in harmony with meaning of the

00:49:23--> 00:49:24

But anyway, we'll be able to find out.

00:49:26--> 00:49:28

So the prophets used to grieve over things.

00:49:30--> 00:49:55

So if he's saying what I said the first parameter isn't the V shape and Bahasa have nothing to do with the station of grief than it is not true if he means that type of grief that is praised as a manifestation of something good, or the natural grief, both of them that the prophets are subject to both pipes, the brief that's a manifestation of something good and the grief that is the natural grief

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

and if he means that

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

That

00:50:05--> 00:50:16

this is not the grief that I'm talking about, then the other type of grief is not desirable for anyone, even for the public, then that statement is somewhat problematic.

00:50:17--> 00:50:19

That statement is somewhat problematic.

00:50:21--> 00:50:25

Then he says, however, the third level of housing or grief is

00:50:27--> 00:50:44

at the husband LRE. But do not follow our grief because of the alternations of states not the mere impulses, grief because of the alternation of states law a lot about alternation of states. So he is in a hell of

00:50:45--> 00:51:00

joy. Own civil as well, for instance, you know, this is his hand now, he feels affinity, he feels friendliness, he feels intimacy, he feels closeness to Allah subhanaw taala. And he's so happy

00:51:02--> 00:51:10

and elated, because of being in that station, have owns affinity closeness, intimacy.

00:51:11--> 00:51:20

And then he is overtaken by another station haber reverence. And he feels saddened because of the parting from the first station to the other.

00:51:22--> 00:51:44

Or he is another station of whole project. And then he gets overtaken by another station, the station of fear, health, and all of them are valid, and all of them are praiseworthy. Because they're there, you should have hope and you should have Raja. But if you are now in the station of Raja,

00:51:45--> 00:52:04

it makes you content and it makes you comfortable to be in the station of when you're overtaken by the station of health, then you're saddened by this departure from the station average are about do not fall out, not just the mere impulses.

00:52:05--> 00:52:29

And then one more about the pursuit and the conflicting pursuits of pursuit that which you seek that which we accept Mahara, that have pursued the conflicts between the different pursuits. And those, you know that those more about the pursuit could be the most distressing thing for the billet for the elites, for the special ones.

00:52:31--> 00:52:40

the select few, because they are keen on pleasing gala in the mood, you know, in attaining the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala

00:52:41--> 00:53:26

in all conditions, and seeking the shortest way to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And they have conflicting pursuits, and they don't know which one is more pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. And they don't know. They don't know how to choose. And they don't know if some are pleasing to Allah and some are displeasing, sometimes in the times of fit and in particular, trials and tribulations in particular, you know, look at, you know, the post revolution in the different Muslim countries and how much trials and tribulations were caused, and how, you know, the

00:53:28--> 00:53:32

best scholar isn't had

00:53:34--> 00:53:37

conflicts among themselves and disagreements and

00:53:39--> 00:54:23

and it is extremely hard to be discerning in times of trial and tribulations, even the Sahaba. In the times of the fitten. It was extremely hard. Which side should you take? What should you be doing now? Should you be taking sides? These are more about the pursuit, the conflicts of pursuits, they are very distressing to the this belief is because you have to the believers because you have to make a decision. And you're afraid that you are that your ego, that you have not escaped from the urges of your ego and your ego is there in control of your decision? And how could you completely walk away from your ego so your decision becomes all for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala complete

00:54:23--> 00:54:35

impartiality, that Jarett that read, that read is when you basically strip away all of the urges of the ego, all of the, you know,

00:54:36--> 00:55:00

desires of the ego. And then you have a pure heart, a clean heart, a transparent heart, one that is capable of making the right the right decision, most pleasing to Allah Spinetta. Wouldn't that cause them distress? Absolutely. Absolutely. It was caused them a great deal of anxiety and the stress more

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

About a puzzle. And lastly, what are

00:55:03--> 00:55:18

some objections to the decrees and those decrees could be the, you know, the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, or the universe of decrees of Allah subhanaw taala objecting to the commands as by, you know, failing to

00:55:20--> 00:55:59

add this level object into the command does not by failing to submit, is talking about the lease here. objecting to the command is by finding some resistance in your heart when the command removes you from your hat, from your state, or the hat. Like if you have, if the command removes you from Zik allows you to do something other than Zik. And you are in your jammies and now you are in your togetherness with Allah and urine state of elation by this decree have been making sacred for the last couple of hours. And then there is a command to just do something else at this point at this time,

00:56:00--> 00:56:05

then you must make the knowledge of the the in the knowledge of Sharia

00:56:06--> 00:56:55

supreme in this case, and the chief guide should be the knowledge of the deed, not your taste, not your hand, and not the comfort that you have in the station. And that could be hard for people because they could be so comfortable in a station. And then when they removed the find this resistance, it is not the lack of submission. Here it is that resistance and their hearts. Whereas the true well he is the one who submits immediately to the command of Allah subhanaw taala and moves from any hand to wherever Allah wants him to be, or whatever Allah wants him to do. And then he objects into the universe of decrees. It is in this particular state, objecting to the universal

00:56:55--> 00:56:58

decrees. Sometimes it is described as

00:56:59--> 00:57:33

desiring other than what Allah had desire. That's why our Beloved Muhammad when his son died, and he and he was laughing, he said in the La Habra, Dr. Maha Bella, a lot of something and I love to love that which he loved. So he did not want to desire other than what the last thought I wanted to desire. But we said that the prophet SAW Selim weep and showed grief over the death of his son, because he was able to master those two stations, the station of mercy, kind heartedness, compassion for his son, and the station of acceptance

00:57:35--> 00:57:56

of the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala. Those who can master those the station simultaneously live a profit that is better for them, than to master one on the other two stations. And then a law cam objected to the universal decrease quote could also be shown by

00:57:57--> 00:58:17

failing to take immediate shelter in the station of river preparing to take immediate shelter in the station of river. Certainly that is for people who are at a lower level or lower degree than the first group. It's failing to take immediate shelter in the state of river

00:58:18--> 00:58:28

and showing a resentment or lack of acceptance, to recall the other stuff that comes along with extra land stuff or go to work.
