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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah de asahiyama Nora sanada.

00:00:07--> 00:00:56

So we're resuming classes after a long break was Ramadan and then you know, then we can next Ramadan we felt that most of the people would not be back and then we can have to after that I was out of town and then we're back under law, so Salah, we will he remember in the classes, we finished the book of Tara from the Rila which is an accomplishment because usually people you know, it's an accomplishment that we're actually starting the book of Salah, because usually people just finish the book of Shahada or just go through part of the book of taharah. And then they start to like look for a different book or a different shape or a different something. And then the like they start all

00:00:56--> 00:01:17

over again from the beginning of the book of taharah. So usually people go over the book of taharah several times in their lives, and they never proceed beyond the book of taharah so 100 an hour get into the book of salah and we hope inshallah that one day we will finish the entire book of alarmed by the Melbourne Kodama Rahim Allah Allah,

00:01:18--> 00:01:27

which, like we said before is a manual of combat effect. We provide some comparative commentary.

00:01:28--> 00:01:40

On this manual, we present the positions of the three other mazahub and sometimes positions from outside of the four

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

as well.

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

In the

00:01:45--> 00:01:56

in this series of the scale, we're going over at the moment Harlow is booked man azido serene are the Stations of the wayfarers at the moment how are we,

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

as you

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

may have heard me say, was also another Hanbury scholar, but not necessarily known for his contribution to the discipline of Philip, but He is known for his contribution to the discipline of solute there's chaos to solve, whatever you call the discipline

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

or the purification of the heart,

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

he was from

00:02:27--> 00:02:32

Herat, which is in contemporary of Palestine, and he

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

was a very humbling scholar, you know,

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

to a great extent,

00:02:42--> 00:02:47

but remember, we left behind the great legacy.

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

The book is has been

00:02:53--> 00:03:06

basically elaborated on by many scholars, I choose for you the commentary of the moment and pay him because, when it comes to weeding out certain concepts in the,

00:03:08--> 00:03:39

in the discipline of salutes to Luke or the discipline of the soul of madness, Iam has a very verifying approach to the discipline. He is a scholar of fap and a scholar of hobbies. Therefore, when he discusses matters that pertain to some of he comes in with this lens of hobbies and effect scholar, which is important basically, to protect us from

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

deviation particularly in addressing issues that pertain to the heart.

00:03:47--> 00:03:52

Generally speaking, the discipline of the soul have has been less regulated

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

than the discipline effect for instance.

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

And you do want to be careful

00:04:01--> 00:04:28

when when you study it, and you do want to help some verifying scholars to filter some of the concepts that may not be in complete conformity with a partner or the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or the way of the righteous predecessors for the great mam's including the four and their counterparts.

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

So we finished

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

we finished 11 of 100 stations, you know the stations in an era we basically divided the stations into 10 categories. Each category has 10 stations. So it is 10 times 10 100 stations. We finished 11 of the stations of the 100 stations. How do we address

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

In his book, remember in the beginning in the introduction we said how do we report from Catania Humala that the stations are 1000 stations, but he for the sake of brevity only addressed 100 of those stations and you will find a lot of overlaps with the 101 cover all of the necessary stations to learn about in your way to Allah subhanaw taala in your travel in your journey to Allah subhana wa tada and this is the station number 12 here which is Bab will have the chapter on fear. And before I begin, normal use usually starts all of the stations with usually starts them with an ayah from the Quran. And he started this particular station by the saying of Allah subhanho wa Taala EFR

00:05:55--> 00:06:06

funaro coonara boom, menfolk, Mo fr maroun cinturato. Na, by the signing of Allah subhanaw taala, the fear the Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.

00:06:07--> 00:06:15

If you're in the in the Arabic one there is there's just there to feed the fear their Lord above them.

00:06:16--> 00:06:30

But the you know, the higher also has and they do what they are commanded. Now, when it comes to unhealth, certainly, when it comes to our confidence come from the punishment of a lion out from the hellfire.

00:06:31--> 00:07:11

It is it is not a secret that many people who grow up in a society like the society that you grew up in, would have aversion to discussions about unarmed or the Hellfire or punishment, or things of that nature, because you are trained to believe that you know that there should be no punishment, your mind is basically trained to believe that there should be no punishment, particularly if you if you're a freshman in college, or your your your second year, you would want everybody to sort of

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

the idea of punishment itself, it causes you a little bit of discomfort, even punishment of criminals, or at least some of you.

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

By the time you finish college, you would have become a little bit more moderate about it, you would have

00:07:29--> 00:07:54

figured out that the punishment is warranted for criminals. And you know, you can't give like every criminal a voucher to attend classes, for instance. Because if you have, if you have been a serial murder, probably a voucher to attend classes about, you know, the evil of murder would not be sufficient. And there should be some other form of deterrence.

00:07:57--> 00:08:48

But that is that's natural. And people do have this aversion and people do think in this way, you just want to he want to remind yourself that people are people and people you know, and this is important, all around. This is important in your approach to the religion around your thoughts are a product of your upbringing, your thoughts are a product of your society. Your thoughts out here in the northeast are different from the thoughts of your counterparts in the Midwest, not outside of America? Not in Canada, you here have, you basically go to the EU you grow up in a different environment, you go to different colleges, whatever you are, your mind is trained to believe, is

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

different from

00:08:51--> 00:09:06

the training that they receive somewhere in the Midwest, or basically, Southwest or south. Or maybe it's comparable in the West, you know, northeast and West. It's just like comparable

00:09:08--> 00:09:23

to a great extent. But can you imagine this is within the same country within the same time, people are trained to believe in different things and people have different understandings of the same

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

concept.

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

Therefore, it can't be up to us to determine it can be up to us to judge the wisdom of the Divine.

00:09:37--> 00:09:47

We will have at the end of the day to say yes, I'm having some discomfort with this concept. But this is what Allah subhanaw taala told me, therefore, I will

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

need to conform to this I will need to accept it as I will need to take my time understanding it and understanding the wisdom behind that. But initially what I will do is I

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

just surrender to it, I will just submit to it until I find comfort in my heart about it. And then when I find this comfort, I'll be able to understand that very well. So just in case you know, and if you if you don't have this discomfort to begin with, if that then that is fine that that's, that's great, that's good for you, that your how're your desires, your thoughts, your inclinations are conforming to our laws, or to the divine well, or to

00:10:36--> 00:10:55

Halas wisdom, that would be great for you. But if you do have this discomfort, know that you are a product of your upbringing, and know that it may take you time to find comfort in your heart about certain concepts that you may learn, or that you may learn in the religion.

00:10:56--> 00:11:12

That the concept of the Hellfire in particular causes people the more discomfort the concept of the eternity of the Hellfire in particular, causes people even more discomfort, what you need to know.

00:11:14--> 00:12:02

What you need to know is that there is certainty in our religion there is European and our religion, about the presence and the existence of reward and punishment. There is European and our religion about the existence of the agenda and the paradise and the hellfire. Yeah, clean certainty, consensus consensus, equaling Iraqi certainty about the presence, the presence, the existence of agenda and dinar, there is the appeal in our religion that some people will be distant to agenda and some people will be distant and not certainty in our religion. There is certainty in our religion, European and our religion, about the eternity of the agenda, certainty consensus about the eternity

00:12:02--> 00:12:25

of the agenda. The Orthodox majority position in our vision is that the dinar is eternal as well. The Orthodox majority position in our vision within our 100 sadhana is that dinar is eternal. Well, the the position that dinar is not eternal has been attributed to some great scholars within the Sunnah.

00:12:26--> 00:13:11

But that is a minority position. Those who cannot come to terms with a majority position, if they find comfort in the minority position, don't take that comfort away from them, you know, until they find comfort in the Orthodox majority position. But if they cannot come to terms with the majority position, cannot you know that their hearts are so distraught by the majority position and can only find comfort, particularly if they're new to Islam, particularly if you're inviting non Muslims Islam and they just cannot come to terms with the majority position, which is the eternity of Hellfire can they find comfort in the minority position,

00:13:13--> 00:13:30

which is not the Orthodox Sunni position, I have to reiterate and emphasize that let them feel and find comfort wherever they can find it. And then they can

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

find comfort in the majority position and come to terms with it.

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

Having said that, let's move on to discussing what Lieberman Haro he said here about the bourbon house the chapter on fear.

00:13:47--> 00:14:32

He said Rahim Allah Hofer, who wanted to fill out and to Medina till the masala Hubbard who Allah salata Raja, fear is being removed from the assurance of security upon beholding the news motala ottobre be holding the news, which is the news of a loss wordings and it is three levels and how foreign and allow men to manage mental health is basically having no assurance of security is to lose that assurance of security, that assurance of security that people have when people say, you know, back in our countries whenever people talk whenever you remind people of Allah subhanaw taala they tell you what have been our foreign Rafi, you know, just leave me alone is not of your

00:14:32--> 00:14:55

business. not been over portal Rahim. Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. These people will have the assurance of security, they have too many nslm they feel secure from the punishment of Allah, that security from the punishment of Allah is is the predecessor is the grandfather of heedlessness callousness you know,

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

indifference lack of religious commitment

00:15:01--> 00:15:33

Why did the lottery the you know, the Hellfire? Why did the law worthy of his punishment Why does a lottery you in the Quran for Farah takafumi ohanian come to me in fire for Abu ferrata homophony and quantum of money and it's an obligation to fear from him. Allah said in another article shavon, homophobia Soraka amaranthaceae takafumi waka Fuli and it is the shaitan threatening his LDS threatening his his

00:15:35--> 00:15:58

his followers Farah takafumi then don't fear from them will have phony and fear from me. Lost Planet Allah says the various right you have any sale of Quran Allah to Allah tala mouthful biagio FIBA different sort of tobacco for Abu Oban as I remember my favorite My favorite is upon you and fulfill my my covenant

00:15:59--> 00:16:26

when he is born and on the me fear from me alone fear from me alone. Well, yeah, and Rob is myself but raba is a little bit different from health. It's the beginning stages of clothes, you know rubber, you know in Arabic that you look for the three letter origin of the word and it gives you a lot of meanings, and around the back is very close and meaning to horrible. Rah

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

rah hubba hubba hubba means fear harbor means run away. So Rabanne Hara, they are close.

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

In, in their origin, because they are somewhat close in their meaning because what I have, which is fear, it is fear that is associated with running away to run away from

00:16:52--> 00:17:11

the harm of Allah subhana wa Tada. And it is the beginning phases of fear and we will talk about how fear goes, you know, how fear is divided into different phases, and not all of it involves running away some of it involves stemness, composure, and sakeena.

00:17:13--> 00:18:01

So, he says here, fear is being removed from the assurance of security. Basically, you remember the lies of a four Rahim on the wedding you're about to have followed when you're about to have excessive fear. You remind yourself the law, you always remember the logical port Rahim I'm not saying that you don't remember it all the time. But you remind yourself this is this is basically the prevalent feeling prevalent feeling. You want to bring this into your heart as the prevalent feeling when you start to fear excessive fear from the punishment of a law that brings you down that causes you too much distress and destructiveness, then you remind yourself allies before Rahim, and

00:18:01--> 00:18:23

what's your parameter? His His mercy encompasses all things. And his mercy precedes his anger. You want to remind yourself of all of this, when the fear becomes excessive, when you become so distressed, and this plot, and when you remind yourself of this, but if you are so callous, and if you are so indifferent, and

00:18:24--> 00:18:56

why should you want to be reminded of this, and not reminded of the punishment of Allah, this is the time when you should be reminded of the punishment of Allah. And remember that hope and fear Raja and how far the two wings of the bird the three emotions that they wreck, your approach to Allah subhanaw taala and the deen of Allah subhanaw taala the three emotions that basically direct you in your journey to Allah subhanaw taala our love

00:18:58--> 00:19:46

you know, have been home for death, you know, love, fear and hope. And they are like buried the head of the bird or the body of the bird you could say is hope. It is the body of the bird or the head of the bird. And then hold on Roger are the two wings of the bird, which is fear and hope. And if you feel that one of the wings is more active than the other one, it's taking you away. It's it is deviating your direction. Because it's more active, where where is where whether it is called for a job, like how when you know if it is more active the wing of house, it will basically cause you pollute, take you away from the straight direction to Allah subhanaw taala which is dictated

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

predominantly by help the body of the bird, you know that love is the body of the bird is the head of the bird. But then when health is is overactive, that wing of health is overactive and it is

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

You're the deviates you takes you takes you away from the,

00:20:06--> 00:20:58

the proper direction of your journey, then you make sure that you you activate the wings of Raja which is the wing of hope and you remind yourself of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and vice versa at all times, it is hope that is the predominant feeling, how we should always be the predominant feeling that competition is not between hope and health. Keep in mind, the competition is between project and health, but help is the predominant feeling at all times. It is the predominant emotion that governs your journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times how and then how faraja are competing with each other. And you basically add a measure of health when when it is

00:20:58--> 00:21:13

necessary, have a measure of Raja when it is necessary, you control the two wings. But But make sure that hope is the predominant feeling in this journey. Okay, so,

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

you know,

00:21:17--> 00:21:23

he says that the that the house is basically being removed from the assurance of security,

00:21:24--> 00:22:05

you do not have this assurance of security until you make it to paradise, then when your your two feet are inside, hello Jana, then you will have this assurance of security. After you have gone through your SAP, you've gone through your interview, you can get through your meeting with Allah subhanaw taala. And you were given your your book with the right hand and you were invited into the jungle and your two feet are inside, then you could then take a deep sigh and say, you know, and hamdulillah Allah subhana wa Tada, you know, pray all praise be to Allah who fulfilled his promise?

00:22:10--> 00:22:16

How can we balance the hoping for because we use them a lot every single day. And

00:22:18--> 00:22:25

we are how important it is to forgive us. And that actually most of the time makes even more. So how can

00:22:28--> 00:22:55

know when you're sitting all the time you do not. And we are all sending all the time. But what I'm trying to say, if you have if you feel that you are that you have too much hope, then that that is you should add a measure of health in this case, should remind yourself and we will say you know, the the precursors of health, we will talk about the

00:22:57--> 00:23:28

in the next paragraph how to add a measure of health, because that should not be your predominant feeling in this case, you know, your project should not outweigh yourself, if you're sending all the time. And we are all sitting all the time. It's just that it depends on the type of sense and it depends on the frequency of sense. And it depends on it depends also on the state of your heart. Are you frightened by your sensor or not? Or do you feel anxious or not? And

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

we will come to this and

00:23:31--> 00:23:37

then he talked about the outcomes are coming in three degrees and he said that Dr. Ola and Uber

00:23:39--> 00:24:07

will hopefully be as a hobby man. The first level is the fear from the punishment and that is the fear through which faith is validated and healthy loving yourself will begin to fear from the punishment of a lot of fear from the Hellfire and that is the fear through which faith is validated. Why does he say this? He is saying that people who say that we have no fear from Allah, we have no faith. They have no Eman. They're mutually exclusive to have no fear from Allah

00:24:09--> 00:24:22

is mutually exclusive with a man. So there has to be the fear of a lie in one's heart. It is an obligation a lot told you for how phony fear me Yeah, for fear me alone.

00:24:23--> 00:25:00

Then people who say that we have no fear and it is all about love. Yes, it is predominantly about love. But can you imagine saying to your father, I don't fear from you. That's disrespectful. What a lack of methadone Allah, but you can say to your father, I don't hear from you. Like you know it, because that shows this respect. Yes, at the end of the day, love is the predominant feeling in your heart. But if you also should, should fear from your father you should fear from your father's punishment. Or you cannot say to your father, you know your father buys you a gift. And they you say to him, you know you know what, you know i

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

I love you that but this is, you know, I don't really care about this gift or I, you know, I have no interest in this gift. So Allah tells you I prepared the agenda for you. And then you say to Allah, yeah, I don't really care about the agenda. I you know, I have no interest in the gentleman. He says that he made it for you himself. And he prepared it and he, you know, you know,

00:25:22--> 00:26:02

added all of those pleasures and enjoyments. And so ally is telling you celebrate my gift, and you're telling him, I don't care about your gift I have no interest in you're done. That is disrespectful. So help. Yes, is the predominant feeling but how phonology are necessary for one to have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he's saying here of the Buddha and hopefully, Koba will hopefully be yourself will be the man First, the first level is the fear from the punishment. And that is the fear through which faith is validated, there has to be a level of fear. So for faith to be valid.

00:26:04--> 00:26:18

Well, hopefully I am and it's the fear of the masses. It does not mean that, you know, be the the hustler, or the elites, or the special ones will not have this fear that they'll have more of it. But how

00:26:19--> 00:26:28

the masses, that is the type of fear they have, the elites will have more fear, but their fear will be over the different kind.

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

And then he said, Well, who

00:26:33--> 00:26:44

does detail why was the krill generika Amara kapa haka. These are the three basically precursors or the three ingredients of fear, plus the

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

believing the warnings,

00:26:49--> 00:26:56

the courage, Gina jenaya, being mindful of the offenses, were more apt to lock the bat and being watchful of the endings

00:26:59--> 00:27:51

the sniffer is the belief it is the pillar why it is the belief and the warnings have a lot to believe in all of these ayah in the Quran that talk about the Hellfire the talk about the punishment of Allah subhana wa tada and people who don't have belief who do not believe in those act, they will certainly be indifferent. They can deny has been mindful of the offenses as of the last episode The alarm who said that the believer feels that his his the new camera Hawkeye don't have the WC cornea parlay that he feels that he's sitting underneath a mountain that's on top of him that's about to fall on his head. And the fact that the wicked one feels that his the new bird like flies, that he

00:27:51--> 00:28:23

will do like this, and they will fly away, you know, so that they're just in so light, so insignificant like flies, sitting on his face or his head, that will simply go away by doing like this waving with his hand, but the believer feels that there is a mountain on top of it, it feels that his new his sins are like a mountain on top of his head that is about to fall on him.

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

And

00:28:31--> 00:29:20

then what aka Tanaka, maraca Tanaka It is to be watchful of the hereafter It is to be theorized to feel like I'll even Have you thought about your loved one who sat in Estonia kata harlot modero terracotta holla maka, Bella ekonomi Abner hella Hirata Coronavirus adonia that the dunia had already departed going away on the earth era departed coming on. So be of the children of the affair Be watchful of this the Acura is moving closer to you closer and closer and closer. So be of the watch. And I don't watch your dirty adonia is leaving you. The Acura is is approaching so be of the children of the afrobeat of the children that are mindful Habibi of those who are mindful of Farah

00:29:23--> 00:29:35

and mindful love he like, like, like we said before, it's not about our pennies to be particularly even more anxious when he hears about cub than

00:29:36--> 00:29:49

the hereafter because it's the first one as amended. It is the first station of the stations of the hereafter and they used to do this to themselves all the time. Harun Rashid commanded that they will dig a grave for him.

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

And

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

then he said Magna honeymoon. He used to look at the grave and say, Man, half an hour

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

numele Allah currently so funny that my wealth

00:30:06--> 00:30:14

does not avail me or would not avail me Halekulani so funny my so far my power is all gone all destroyed

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

ammonia when my mom died

00:30:23--> 00:30:36

and I know that moon strikes some negative feelings in your hearts but he was a righteous man he's a righteous wise man he deviated in certain regards but he was righteous otherwise man

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

and so when moon died

00:30:43--> 00:30:51

when moon was was about to die, he put his head on the on the floor. And he said, Yeah man

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

Yeah man,

00:30:58--> 00:31:06

the one who's who's Dominion never vanishes or his money, his kingdom

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

never vanishes, show mercy on the one who's getting or whose power vanished.

00:31:19--> 00:32:07

So we'll be in last fall of an ATHLEAN. IBM was full of the Hereafter is is is essential. And that's why what are things that we should train our children to be you know, from, you know, very early phases of their life. And even below our young life, build belief and align believe belief in the hereafter. If you inculcate the belief in Allah in the hereafter in your children that will protect them in in their future and that will protect them from being indifferent to towards Allah subhanaw taala Who is this young woman the there is a report that this young woman in Basra, young, Basra, he used to be very righteous.

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

And at the time of her death,

00:32:12--> 00:32:15

and hazardous we went to visit her he was told that she is

00:32:18--> 00:32:26

that she's by. So he was, so he went to visit her, because he had known of her righteousness. And then

00:32:27--> 00:32:36

he found her very anxious. And he tried to calm her down and remind her of all of her righteousness and so on. And she said,

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

I heard I heard

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

I heard my

00:32:45--> 00:32:57

I heard my mother say to my father his leg up and I heard my mother say to my father, go get her shrouds or get her shrouds ready or prepare her shrouds or Kapha

00:32:59--> 00:33:10

will lay out a side Lupita Lee Musashi, safira tonita Mecca, Medina, watch the elasto hast or who cibola if they tell me that I will travel

00:33:12--> 00:33:23

alone to Mecca or Medina high would be anxious, I will be anxious about you know traveling alone to Mecca or Medina. Fact I found him to

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

take a photo selfie.

00:33:29--> 00:33:35

So how about when when the reality is that I'm traveling, you know, I'm traveling alone

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

already or the Day of Resurrection.

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

So it

00:33:43--> 00:33:50

you know, people who are mindful of Allah subhanaw taala, who believe in the wordings of Allah, who

00:33:51--> 00:34:02

are aware of their sins and the gravity and the magnitude of their sins, and they're also watchful of the hereafter or for

00:34:03--> 00:34:18

people who will always have this fear from Allah subhanaw taala and that is basically the first level of fear. That's the first level of fear. Then he said,

00:34:20--> 00:34:24

Well, there are 230 unhelpful mercury feeder animal and fast.

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

Almost every polyakova mushu babble Hello, what data to Sonia hopefully McCreevy, geranyl and fast start Riccati filippova Mitsubishi but Hello. The second level is fear from the plotting that is an MK the plotting of Allah subhanaw taala, while one rejoices in the times of wakefulness that are mixed with the sweetness of faith. So people who are pious people who are engaged in obedience, people who are doing power people who spend their days in fasting then

00:35:00--> 00:35:34

You know, and they don't, they stay away from the mahatama law, they stay away. They never violate the rights of others. They never hurt other people they never, they're never other is a word of obscenity or hurtful word against anyone who they always say speak good to people and so on. People who are living a life of righteousness. This life of righteousness is the life of wakefulness and unfasten mystery poverty, aka the every breath,

00:35:36--> 00:36:25

comes out in a state of joy, wakefulness, every breath that comes out of the chest, it is a state of wakefulness, they are awake all the time, they're watchful of Allah subhana wa tada all the time, they have no heedlessness, or reflect whatsoever. And that state of wakefulness is mixed with the Super Bowl, on our Halloween email, it's mixed with this weakness of faith. Because when you are in the state of wakefulness, you you find this weakness of faith, yet, like, they never, they never get diluted with this sweetness with this, they they know that this is all but a gift from Allah subhanaw taala, they have no power to stay where they are, like that. So they never feel secure from

00:36:25--> 00:36:34

the quantity of Allah subhanaw taala they could be removed from this station, any time any art, any, you know, self can see

00:36:35--> 00:36:51

any pride and their deeds, any thinking that they own it, they own the station, I got there by my work, I own it, you know, can can get you removed from the station,

00:36:52--> 00:37:18

immediately, spontaneously, and allow it not care where you end up being and within which station, you had the big luggage remove you from the station, you can imagine after you know ascending and climbing the mountain, the steep hill and then you get removed from it, you fall. And it could be a freefall. And you could end up you know, in the worst of stations, it please.

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

You see how he was removed from his station

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

when he had this argument side.

00:37:28--> 00:38:17

And when he ended up being so this is the house this is the second layer, or the second level of health. It's the health of the people who are obedient, the health of the people who are obedient. But this house is a little different from the first level of code. This is the health of the people who have knowledge of a law of awareness and recognition. This is called hero, the scholars use the word cashier for this. You know when Allah subhanaw taala says isn't sort of father in them if so long I'm in a bed he wrote a man named Max Allah made a bet he wrote, only those who have clarity of Allah, out of his servants are the ultimate the scholars, though the loose endowed with knowledge.

00:38:18--> 00:38:43

Now other scholars in the sense of those who have information, who those who possess information, those who are endowed with true knowledge, that's the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada. So, it is beneficial information, beneficial knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala that moves them that that basically governs their actions, their conduct.

00:38:45--> 00:39:01

It is not any automatic. We're just talking about this hobbies, which is which is, which has been authenticated by several scholars have had the youth just accelero What have you the Amati Pura

00:39:02--> 00:39:23

which means that the hypocrisy in my oma is most prevalent among the Pura, which is a word that used to mean in the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not just reciters but scholars. So the hypocrisy in my oma is most prevalent among

00:39:24--> 00:39:53

scholars. And for many reasons, this has to be balanced out with all of the idea is to talk about the virtue of knowledge and the virtue of the scholars and the status of the scholars and Islam has to be balanced out. But it is a reminder for the people of knowledge the people who possess knowledge, that hypocrisy is closer to them than it is closer to any one of the public because they have something to show up. And because the shaitan will not allow them.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

Basically, enjoy that sincerity because they have

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

corrected their actions already through knowledge, nothing is left between them and Paradise is to correct their intentions and the time will not leave them alone.

00:40:12--> 00:40:25

Except for loss of Karnataka saves them from this a con. But it is important to know that it is not just about information, it's about the beneficial knowledge. Now this cashier,

00:40:26--> 00:41:11

this cashier is different from a cow is different from the first level of health because of health, you know, involves having anxiety in first year involves composure and stillness, because the people who are have clarity of Allah subhanaw taala, they have made their provisions already they have taken their precautions already, they started the journey in an armored vehicle, they started their journey in an armored vehicle, they know how to protect themselves. So if if, like, if here are people who have this anxiety, the fear of the first level of cofa, if they are attacked by a lion, for instance, the run in different directions, they don't know where to go, because they have no

00:41:11--> 00:41:59

knowledge, the people who have the knowledge, the Automat, or the people who have true awareness of Allah subhanaw taala recognition of Allah and what is pleasing to Him and what is displeasing to him, they find protection nearby, because they started the journey of an armored vehicle, and they don't go away from it. So if the if a lion is approaching or like an attacker, predatory is approaching, what they do is they get inside their vehicle, they get protection in the art of Allah subhanaw taala away from the mercy of Allah. Now, if they are inside this armored vehicle, are they less afraid of the wire? No, they're not afraid of the line. It's just that they know how to protect

00:41:59--> 00:42:45

themselves. It's like a doctor, for instance, and a lay person, the doctor may have more fear than the layperson from diseases because he knows all the diseases, you know, and he may have more fear, you know, what he reads the ingredients and he watches with without being obsessive for sure. But he reads the ingredients and he watches what he eats. And he, you know, he knows that, you know, the surface may have all of those germs. So he washes his hands after he touches the, you know, unclean surfaces and so on. Because he has more awareness, he more awareness than the lay person. But the doctor when he's told that, that you know of a disease or something, he knows the medicine, he goes

00:42:45--> 00:42:58

and grabs the medicine and takes the medicine, the layperson feels and anxiety, because of this lack of awareness may have less fear, less fear, but more anxiety

00:43:00--> 00:43:56

than the knowledgeable person will have more fear because of his greater awareness, but less anxiety, it is filled with composure filled with fear with Sakina that is the harsh ear of Allah subhanho wa Taala where this he does not run in all directions, he does not run, you know, without without direction, he knows he gets into his armored vehicle, he seeks protection in the fall of Allah away from the mercy of Allah and the Tao of Allah is not limited to actions of the body, it is about the heart, he knows, you know, that humility and humbleness is his protection from the shaper and that arrogance and pride would befall him into the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So,

00:43:57--> 00:44:26

that is why it is important to distinguish between unfulfilled and harsh in this regard, how it may be less than or less than the amount, you know, but first year has this Sakina and composure because it is the love of the people of knowledge people our true knowledge. Then he moves on to the third phase. And then he says what is a FEMA

00:44:27--> 00:44:29

workshop on how he ilahi battle

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

where he up sobre la happy via telehealth while acfe mikami Island who sues for the elitist among the believers lies of Washington health in a battle. There is not that this invasion. desolation of fear was shattered have this relation of fear. It is the distillation of one who is distant from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's the bleakness it is the you know of

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

Being distant from Allah subhanaw taala, the loneliness, the the fear that is mixed with anxiety

00:45:09--> 00:45:39

because your, your your Power of Now, more power up corrupt comes in the passive voice right? Because the br mokara means that you were chosen to come close, you can do this on your own, you can do this on your own until you are to car drop, which means to be brought closer to Allah, someone will bring you closer there's a law who will bring you a lie who would invite you to be close. So the karabo the people who are already close to Alaska

00:45:42--> 00:46:30

the it's a different type of health, they have both, but it's a different type of fix, hey back to the journal, which is basically the art of divine reverence, the are the author of divine reverence that can you imagine being close to Allah subhanaw taala. It is, it is the shock the heart of divine reverence that will control your feelings. It is not the hope of the beginners who running away in different directions afraid of the punishment of Allah. It's not even the hasha of the scholars but for the makara boon. It is the author of divine reverence, that does not mean that they don't have the first and the second level. It means that they have reached the third level of hope or fear some

00:46:30--> 00:46:54

of the scholars in Ramallah for instance, he divides the Haberman is allowed into two different types with two different categories. But you could put it but it's allowed together, you know, to not complicate things. So and how you bet is the hlr is the divine reverence, it is the author of divine reverence, it is your feeling of the Divine reverence that will cause this power in your heart.

00:46:56--> 00:47:01

When when you are invited to closeness to Allah subhanaw taala

00:47:02--> 00:47:14

why oxidizers newsha evaton Health IT is the highest ranking to be pointed out at the peak of the station of fear at the peak of the station of fear.

00:47:16--> 00:47:19

So, this is basically where you like

00:47:21--> 00:47:26

Fabiola, Hayat for instance, during during his time in office,

00:47:28--> 00:47:40

he kept on crying for the entire for his entire woof arafa he had his hand on the ground. And then when he lifted his head up, is

00:47:43--> 00:47:46

he was praying, praying for forgiveness.

00:47:48--> 00:47:53

And very, he said, was Minka, whatever your father

00:47:55--> 00:47:59

was? Tell me Minka. What am I?

00:48:01--> 00:48:05

What a disgrace What a disgrace, if you forgive

00:48:08--> 00:48:46

it, even if you forgive that this grace is the standard before our last urata to be shown all of your evil and wicked deeds, even if He forgive you, it is so disgraceful to come back to him to return to Him with all of those evil deeds, even if they were forgiven, and that is the level of karabo it becomes, you know, like a feeling of shyness, you're too shy from Allah subhanaw taala to go back to him with all of those evil deeds, even if they were forgiven.

00:48:49--> 00:49:03

He says it is the hypertonia arido Mukesh if our Carter manager, what a surah Musa Musa Mara methoxy Momo, hi Ravi sub Mattila is where he has taught me

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

how you bitten it's all

00:49:08--> 00:49:14

that is encountered too hard to catch it Okay. That is encountered

00:49:16--> 00:49:22

by the one in a state of disclosure during the times of soft conversation.

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

You know, these are people who are close to Allah who they have minutes hours Allah they have soft conversation with Allah subhanaw taala. But never remove the barrier of respect of reverence. You know, you should not, you know,

00:49:41--> 00:49:47

the word in Arabic is referred to at least as I like, it would be just don't remove that

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

veil of respect.

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

When when you are with Allah Spano Tata, even if he invited you closer, even if you're enjoying a soft conversation

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

with Allah subhanaw taala still maintain the respect and the reverence and that is the haber the or that will keep you in check that will keep you respectful of Allah subhanaw taala even after being invited to closeness and proximity to curb

it protects the witness and mutia head with a pseudo Masahiro Masai Mara. It protects the witness or the the witness Messiah from Shahada.

00:50:33--> 00:51:20

The difference between and Moshe had more is that he will talk about his method mohai in is an eyewitness emotion, it could be an eyewitness, but not necessarily an eyewitness, but in more it is an eyewitness. So if he says it protects the witness or the observer during the time of friendly, Masai Mara friendly nightly dialogues, friendly dialogues at night, that's the Masai Mara, when you have a friendly dialogue with your friends at night. It's called Masai Mara sit down after Ayesha or you know before I shall hopefully have some Samara that is friendly dialogue with your friends, their their Muslim rise with the loss of Allah tala, they have this friendly dialogue with Allah

00:52:09--> 00:52:09

health.

00:52:12--> 00:52:13

You know,

00:52:14--> 00:52:38

ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who have Taqwa, ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who fear Him and fear his punishment, and hoping his reward and to be of his beloved ones, and those who love One No One more than they love Allah subhanaw taala and hold no and dear then Allah subhanaw taala in their hearts could carry on.
