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

about how to proceed

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

to the internet we will go over

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

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

the chapter on hope or the Menzel or the Manzella Roger

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

station of hope.

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

from Nazareth serene by, say hold on Harvey rafino Ramallah

00:00:59 --> 00:01:09

he said, Raja Kala Azar, Jelena katakana, Lacombe. Rasulullah Hasina. Man, Can I order to learn how a young woman

00:01:11 --> 00:01:34

Hala chapter on hope alone mighty said there has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah and excellent pattern, for example, for anyone whose hope is in a law and the last day, and he mentioned this idea, because in order to allow a young man, he has opened a lot, and the last day

00:01:37 --> 00:01:41

to have open the last day meaning that you do believe in the last day

00:01:42 --> 00:01:51

that you have certainty and the last day and it also means open the last day that you're longing for it, you're looking for it.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:39

Not just that you have certainty in it. Because ketevan nfca Ramirez manga chameleon, he prescribed for himself mercy, that he would bring you back he'll bring you together he will gather you to the Day of Judgment. The Day of Judgment is a manifestation of His mercy. If there was no Day of Judgment, and this creation was purposeless, then that the life is extremely cruel. And autonomously Nina can want to remain, shall we make the Muslim in the submitters, those who submitted are well, well, like emotionally mean the criminals around the doors, then the Day of Judgment is a manifestation of mercy. And every person with good nature should be looking forward to the day of

00:02:39 --> 00:02:54

judgment should be, you know, having hope that the day of judgment has come in and certainty that the day of judgment is coming. And this is when you know justice will be established, and all matters will be settled.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:04

Lima Manuel Hama la Santa Rosa well documented and worried hope is the weakest of the stations of the marine.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:10

Roger apothem and as Anna Maria hope is the weakest station of the marine

00:03:11 --> 00:03:22

Leanna humara determine what because it is in a way interference water outcome in wet what and in a way objection.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

Well, we're poor or poor on

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

poor on federal owner, female, heavy heavy

00:03:30 --> 00:03:38

and all of this is but imprudence in the mess half of this assembly of the most out of the seekers.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:12

Okay, it's a shocking statement, you want to absorb it. And when you approach a statement of this nature, from a man of this stature like chef in Islam and Harvey, one of the greatest scholars in our tradition is then you do want to have respect and trust. Not only respect but also trust in any moment. How are we? But at the same time you want to keep your measuring stick with you

00:04:13 --> 00:04:24

want to keep your measuring stick with you. What is your measuring stick the Quran and the Sunnah and the way of the scholar of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:04:25 --> 00:04:38

actions and sayings of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that general way for tradition of his companions called the Obi Wan. Now

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

we want to say that we live in a moment Halloween. And we want we trust the moment how are we? So we want to figure out why is this statement somewhat shocking to us and somewhat inconsistent with the apparent meanings?

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

The Quran and the Sunnah when he says that Raja is the weakest of the stations, and he considers that rojak hope in a lot to be imprudence. It is shocking, right? You know you're, you're baffled by it, you're puzzled by how good Roger hope in a lot be improvements? or How could it be the weakest of the stations? How could that be deserving of this praise?

00:05:34 --> 00:05:46

First of all, establish the truth. Look at the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companions, look at the way of the promises of his companions

00:05:48 --> 00:06:27

do I, the essence of God is having hope in Allah subhanaw taala the essence of supplication is that you have hope in Allah subhanaw taala and you have an idea that Allah will respond to your God and you'll make dua for your well being your prosperity in this life and next one and that's what a lot of thought is in the parade. Not only that work a lot office in the corral and he taught us how to make enough tinea Hassan orfila karate has no para, para para,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:32

para para la mama are better

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

prepared actually,

00:06:41 --> 00:07:04

physically and etc, etc, etc. A lot of this how to surface you know make draw and how to ask him and how to invoke him. But not only that, Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us that if you do not make dua that means that you're too proud to worship Allah because God is the worship of Allah in an Athena has already said

00:07:05 --> 00:07:06


00:07:08 --> 00:07:19

So those who are too arrogant to worship me, when entered to have them in humility and disgrace an examinee

00:07:20 --> 00:07:31

so now when you make dua, you have hope you have projects that allow and respond to your god you're making God because you do want the best for yourself.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:34


00:07:35 --> 00:07:50

it is not the weakest of the stations and it is not for the beginners. Because who made that Brahimi you know, look at the long guy have a Brahim at the end of sort of the problem across the the end of sort of

00:07:51 --> 00:07:56

cabana and he has come to the reality of it these are an antibiotic imahara at the end of it

00:07:58 --> 00:08:54

so the greatest of the greatest made the and had open a line and you know, sock that favors of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the art to be sought. Okay. So now we established that Roger is not the weakest of the stations in the sense and that every believer should have hope in a lot and that every believer that the greatest of the believers had hoped and aligned how there are giant law that is including the messengers. Now we come to we go back and we say the moment how do we is one of our greatest scholars in environment how are we is not defiant to the letter or the spirit of Sharia. So, where where is he coming from? You do want and fat mula kurama. hawala acid and Mohammed as an

00:08:54 --> 00:09:25

eminent pioneer of Napoleon, Rahim Allah also sell and tequila calamar Asante, Mohammed is to interpret his words in in the best possible way so that they are consistent and to figure out where he's coming from so that you're not condemning him, even if you will disapprove of his statement, even if you disapprove of his statement. So where is the moment where are we coming from? Why is he saying that? Roger have an open Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:26 --> 00:09:56

is the weakest of the stations. Because how do we his you know, his greatest endeavor is in finance is the vanishing of your will, the vanishing of your ego, the death of your ego? So, he is saying that if you are having Raja means that you have ones that you want something

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

and at the end of

00:10:00 --> 00:10:18

This journey or when you reach the highest of the stations, you should not be wanting anything because you will only want what Allah wants. Therefore you have no ones you have no Will you have no wishes

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

in the know no irata no Armani

00:10:22 --> 00:10:30

as the father of de la Ilaha Hola. And shape of the father is one of the greatest.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:34

So I don't think that they've been near

00:10:35 --> 00:10:45

me or him Allah called anyone say the exception of the Father, there there in his wife at our there is no safety except with the Shahada.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

Not even with him.

00:10:50 --> 00:11:26

But that does not mean that anything irrespective of the Father more than he expected in our mind, it just means that he was extremely respectful of South Africa and his sort of his commentary on life by shook up the car that is is an excellent commentary. And she has a father says, you know, corroborates that that concept, which is that your will will vanish and everything else when he talks about infinite he approves of federal irata which is the vanishing of your will,

00:11:27 --> 00:11:33

the vanishing GAVI will that's how the pilot says that, you know, if you

00:11:39 --> 00:11:42

favor Midtown, harati de la cara imicola

00:11:45 --> 00:11:52

erotica, Ramona is a metallic erotica Mona para la cara maka, La

00:11:54 --> 00:12:32

La Mota Baba. So he will he was saying that, you know, once you disregard the creations and you don't have any reliance on the creations, it would be sad to you, may Allah have mercy on you, and then your desires will die. Your your desires will vanish. And then once your desires have vanished, it will be said to you, may Allah have mercy on you, and your irata would vanish. Your will, you will have no one's basically you're saying to Allah, whatever you want her me, I'm accepting of it. So,

00:12:33 --> 00:12:39

law says that this is this may happen to them, they may go through

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41


00:12:43 --> 00:12:46

out basically a ham

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

and what how did we translate her standard

00:12:54 --> 00:13:16

state or condition okay? So they may go through a ham, whereby they they're saying to Allah, whatever you have decreed for me, I am pleased with it, even if it is tournament or other, even if it is that I am pleased with your victories.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:18


00:13:20 --> 00:13:24

so so that's beautiful, right? It's complete submission.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:33

But the the thing here is that allow me decrease something and not like

00:13:35 --> 00:13:40

the difference between what Allah wills and will allow likes.

00:13:42 --> 00:14:06

In fact, for Allah honey anon Kumara by the Gulf, if you this believe that know that Allah is not in need of you, in sort of zomer what I have got a buddy of mine, he does not approve of or he disapproves of golf for his service, he decreed it, but in his approves of it.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:17

So in this case, a lot does not like to torment us. So we do not need basically we do not need

00:14:18 --> 00:14:37

to have this, you know conflict inside of us that I dislike or not, but I like to submit to the will of Allah Therefore, I will submit to the will of Allah even if he went for me to be in enough

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


00:14:41 --> 00:14:41


00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

because I'll lie because I know deep inside me that what our loved ones for what Allah likes and loves for

00:15:00 --> 00:15:03

Make is to be in Ghana not to be enough.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:11

And complete conciliation between, you know the concept of Tata

00:15:13 --> 00:15:40

Hubba is beyond our comprehension. But you want to be certain that Allah likes for you, gentlemen, and I'm not not another man follow the other becoming ceccato momento, but with a lot to do with you tormenting you if you are grateful and faithful Shackleton if you showed gratitude, and had faced were among two

00:15:42 --> 00:16:34

so there is there is no need for us to have this conflict inside us. What we need to do is to submit to the will of Allah and to have certainty in the justice and fairness of Allah to submit to the will of Allah have certainty in the justice of Allah subhanaw taala and want our well being and our welfare in this life in the hereafter as instructed us to look for our welfare and where our well being, that is what it means to be federal aid a lot on a way to Allah, that you're running away from his or that to his nine from his torment to his you know, bounties and favors and the pleasures in this life and in the Hereafter. So, is it clear where are we coming from when he talks about hope

00:16:34 --> 00:16:41

that you should have that the you know, at the end of the this path

00:16:43 --> 00:16:52

the station of hope will be the weakest substations and you should have transcended the station of hope because you have no once except what Allah wants

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


00:16:56 --> 00:16:59

Okay, and matana be said, you know,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:06

just to clarify it a little bit more so and whatnot be a

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

you know, you know that it was the greatest

00:17:10 --> 00:17:15

poets and the tradition the entire history of the Arabs

00:17:16 --> 00:17:26

so I'm gonna be that that does not mean that you know, he was most righteous or most knowledgeable in Islam. He was a great quote for the greatest

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

so he said this is $1

00:17:31 --> 00:18:13

in Canada sobre como para hacer una family jorhat Eva, Docomo alum in Ghana sobre como para hacer una family Jordan is an animal if you are if it made you happy what our envier for our opponent adversary said about us and that made you happy. And then it was even said that in cipher through a an ink bot not be inherited. So he said to him family, your hand is our Docomo Alamo, you know, a wound or hurt or harm

00:18:14 --> 00:18:40

that pleases you will not cause me pain, no harm or no hurt, that will please you will cause me pain because I am, you know, he if you're pleased, I am pleased. And he's saying this that human beings certainly that, you know would not be appropriate to say to a human being. But imagine, imagine how that how we

00:18:43 --> 00:18:53

would feel in their presence. You know, when we're in their station, or state of

00:18:54 --> 00:19:28

submission, complete submission to Allah subhanaw taala they would be feeling that whatever you have decreed for me, I'm accepting of it. Now, this does not mean that we will not make that we will make. And as almoradi Allahu said, We flee from the decrease of Allah to the decrease of Allah because at the end of the day, everything is decreed by him. So we flee from the plague, or from the disease, to health, and we flee from you know, all

00:19:30 --> 00:19:42

the harm to our well being and our welfare in this life, and thereafter in this type of egotism is essential, you know, this

00:19:44 --> 00:19:53

particular type of egotism is essential for our survival and our salvation in the Hereafter, because we want to flee from and not to Amgen.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:56


00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

So in a moment, how are we even said when he

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

Talking about Roger.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:05

Is He then said,

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07


00:20:09 --> 00:20:17

if I even say that in my head I wanna know taka bismi Tenzin Watson fimasartan mahaki.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:52

The only exception be he's calling Raja imprudence. And he's calling it the weakest of the stations. And we said that, that this particular statement is not consistent with a way of the messengers and their followers. But he is saying that there is an exception here from this statement, which is not the only exception is that it entails one benefit rather hope in alignment is one benefit for which it was mentioned in the revelation and the sooner and it was included in the practice of the discerning folks.

00:20:55 --> 00:21:22

What is the one benefit that Roger has according to the moment huddle he said, what will kill forever to unknown we have so Huracan Houthi patala yada yada Yes, this benefit is cooling down the heat of fear so that it does not turn into the spear. For him Raja has only one benefit, it cools down the heat of fear. So that fear does not turn into the spear

00:21:24 --> 00:21:29

is clear. But if you look in, you know,

00:21:31 --> 00:22:20

in you know, athletes discuss the the many, many benefits of Raja Raja entails having good thoughts of Allah Raja entails having good thoughts of Allah Raja entails embracing the attributes of German, you know, Allah has attributes of German and attributes of giraffe attributes of beauty and attributes of might glory. So the attributes of German, the Compassionate, the Forgiving, the generous and caring, you know, and why do Rahim, Allah foo these attributes of the man, you want to embrace the attributes of the man, and the attributes of German, surpass and transcend the attributes of Allah.

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

The greatest of his attributes are the attributes of Japan.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:38

The greatest of his names are His Names of German are His Names of beauty. So you want to embrace those names, and you will not have

00:22:40 --> 00:22:58

basically completely embraced the names of Jamal without having Roger. And without having good thoughts of Allah subhanaw taala and seeking His mercy, his forgiveness, his generosity, his compassion, and so on and so forth. And then

00:22:59 --> 00:23:10

Raja also will bring you to his door, and keep you there, Raja in Allah subhanaw taala will bring you to the door of Allah subhanaw taala and keep you standing by his door.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:27

I think it is time for someone else who said stand by the door until it gets open, sometimes it may get open for somebody else not you is squeezing.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:32

You know, and you and

00:23:33 --> 00:23:34

it has

00:23:37 --> 00:24:29

to be injuries. Meaning that when you are in the company of the righteous, when the company and the mercy descends, and the doors open, you may not be one of them. You may not be one of the righteous, but the mercy descended on this gathering. And you're you're squeezing, and you ask Allah subhanaw taala to let you in and to keep you there, because the doors have been open to your company, not necessarily you, but your company, if you marry a righteous woman or righteous man, and, you know, that's a chance for you to squeeze in, you know, they would help you, the door will be opened, the door is open for them. And you're their partner, you know, and you're around them all the time. And

00:24:29 --> 00:24:59

the doors have been open for them. You squeeze in you get in and you use that opportunity to be brought closer and to get into the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, so then Raja has many, many benefits, many benefits. So I have no time answer, you know, I am disapproves with an environment where we run alone on these issues. But I you know, I don't have time.

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

teachers here are listening overstocked. And he was, you know, throughout the book he teaches is how to be respectful, respectful, and at the same time, at the same time, hold on to your measuring stick, the infallible measuring stick, the unfailing measuring stick the way of the Prophet and his companions and say, regardless of where it comes from, if this if a statement comes from an elf,

00:25:30 --> 00:26:16

and you find that to be inconsistent with the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companions, you favor the way it's clear, should be clear to any believer should be clear to any believer, there is nothing that is that takes precedence over the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us he made himself for himself, his family, for the believers and so on. So, I will read for you, I translated some of what at the moment of time himself, because he was this I agree and assertively was at the moment how do we and he was afraid that this may sound impolite, this respectful to remember Harvey, when he considers

00:26:16 --> 00:26:22

the moment how do we history and he considers it a moment how do we say for this length, you know, so

00:26:24 --> 00:26:34

then time says this. So, basically, this is his apology to the moment how many, how many years of order between them now a lot of

00:26:35 --> 00:26:35


00:26:38 --> 00:26:47

270 years in order to harm us before we move in time by 270 years. So he says, Well, we asked guru Islami Surya

00:26:48 --> 00:27:04

May Allah recompense j for Islam and how are we for his work while you are a leader a Jetta and elevate his ranking with Z of Al Jazeera, and reward him with the best reward

00:27:06 --> 00:27:22

wildomar aubenas and obeying the houfy maharlika rahmati May Allah gather us with him in the abode of his graciousness? fella what are the Merida who sat and well first happy turkey la de la Mata Radhika, Llama Llama

00:27:23 --> 00:27:29

is had his marine his seeker time talking about himself had I had

00:27:31 --> 00:27:59

had I found a concession not to disagree with him, and to comment disapprovingly on his statements. Has has his marine found this concession you would have not done that. He I would have not disagreed how they found a concession. But since it helped Elena, I did not find the concession. Since that happened, the truth is more beloved to us. I did not find the concession to not disagree.

00:28:01 --> 00:28:21

And then remember tinium says, The reason why I should have stayed silent I haven't found any concession have I found any way to stay silent, I would have stayed silent. And the reason is, can you for putnika hula hoop Salaam wa Jalla Sabina de multisector me the man instead?

00:28:22 --> 00:28:39

Why should they not stay silent when Allah has benefited you or why should he not because he was talking about himself and the third person here have no time, which has basically to be lifted himself talking about himself in the third person to be less than himself.

00:28:40 --> 00:29:16

So he says Why should he not this moreread stay silent when Allah had benefited him? I am referring to himself with his words environment hobbies, and he sat before him like a student sets before his death. Well who I heard oh man can i a day he said Who? Yeah Papa penguin Anima. He means he says he was one of those through whom he was granted fat. Fat has unsolicited gift from Allah and so that the gift of hedaya guidance, disclosure gastrin sore

00:29:18 --> 00:29:28

during wakefulness and sleep, which means that you know, pi m probably was seeing a lot of Roja or Allah Muhammad, in which he saw him and

00:29:30 --> 00:29:31

he was seeing him and his lawyer.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:55

And then he says we have a riot would have been more careful if you have a MOBA. This is the most exertion of this limited person concerning this issue. My commentary my explanation of where I believe the moment Hara we made a mistake or Earth in this regard is the most I can do this is my exertion This is my understanding,

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

from encana and the

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

failure to be

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

So he's inviting people. If you think I was wrong in my

00:30:06 --> 00:30:21

basically, this approval of these statements by the moment Halloween, he says from Ghana in the overburden, Whosoever has more knowledge failure, just be let him graciously shared, share this knowledge with me.

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

I will follow up on what I did in an in car, or at least that him excuse me, and that he's into condemnation.

00:30:33 --> 00:30:58

For campaign and Hood Hood, would I be in LA he's with a man. How far is the distance between the hoopoe and soleiman prophets with a man Hey, Sarah, how far is the distance, great distance? Well, who I would have to be mad on to be and the hoopoe said too soon I met her a salon, I encompass that which you have not encompassed.

00:31:00 --> 00:31:03

When I say full Islam, and how are we

00:31:05 --> 00:31:22

gonna mean Nabila and Sophia Islam and how are we is not more knowledgeable than the Prophet of Allah, referring to Sulaiman while I'm sorry. He be Halloween Hood Hood, and the Yeah. And this basically

00:31:25 --> 00:31:34

objector against and the objector, the one who's objecting to his statement, the objector is not more ignorant than the hoopoe.

00:31:35 --> 00:31:59

So he is basically comparing himself to the hoopoe, and remember Harley to suit a man and he says, The hoopoe stand satisfy man, I encompass that which you have not encompassed. And that was not disrespectful. So I am not being disrespectful of myself. When I disagree with him, what we learned was style.

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

And allies, the one sought for help, and he knows best. Why do they want and need to translate? Why do they need to just read this for you? Because if we have this added,

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

when we disagree with each other, particularly when we disagree with sincere people with good doors, you know, if we have this added, gee, can you imagine how you know, our discourse will improve? You know, that all

00:32:34 --> 00:33:02

our posts on Facebook and Twitter and Social Media, can you imagine if you have this added, and this added would open up, you know, hearts and minds and win hearts and minds for you. Because if you disagree this respectfully, and if you disagree this politely, there is a very good chance that you're the person you're disagreeing with, will give thought

00:33:03 --> 00:33:29

to your your objection. And when ponder over your objection, and may benefit from your disagreement, this is not to say that showing you know assertiveness and strength, particularly with corrupt people is not prescribed in Islam it is prescribed because when when the help always comes across

00:33:30 --> 00:33:31

you know,

00:33:32 --> 00:33:57

looking weak, then the button or falsehood may prevail. So, but this is not about condemnation of the person and this is not about, you know, character assassination of the person. This is about condemnation of the concept and being assertive in your disapproval of the concept. particularly bad concepts that come from, you know,

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

people who do not mean well for Islam and the Muslims. So being assertive and being strong and using strong language sometimes is warranted, but it is not about character assassination. It's about deconstructing the argument of the opponent, assertively strongly and you know, sometimes

00:34:24 --> 00:34:30

a little bit roughly sometimes may be warranted sometimes.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:45

Cook okay then at the moment hado He says, and we spent a long time on this because, you know, I think that what I am self taught as particularly in this chapter is very worthwhile.

00:36:54 --> 00:37:20

So you remind yourself of this, that one day I will be able to be in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala, I will be able to see Allah Subhana Allah God, and don't think, you know, don't let your brain ruin spoil that moment

00:37:22 --> 00:37:29

00:37:49 --> 00:37:58

So you remind yourself of this. And this will give you energy, you know, sustainable energy, energy that never

00:37:59 --> 00:38:00


00:38:02 --> 00:38:15

Then when you need to tell us a bit hidden. And this Roger, this hope in the pleasure of a land agenda pauses enjoyment of the service, because the service, you know, headman

00:38:17 --> 00:38:25

pride, fasting charity, had they had all of these things are heart, their heart,

00:38:26 --> 00:38:31

how do you enjoy them, you enjoy them by remembering the

00:38:33 --> 00:38:35

remembering what what

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

the ultimate consequence of these acts, or you know, and the more you hopefully you are in this reward, and the more certain you are in this reward, the more certain you are in this reward and the more hopefully are in this reward, you will be enjoying this work

00:39:01 --> 00:39:07

in proportion to your certainty in this reward that you're hoping this reward in proportion to

00:39:08 --> 00:39:19

this extent and that, you know, they may, Allah says, there is a gender in the dunya that before the gender of ally for those who enter the jungle.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:59

Meaning that in your service, because of your certainty and the reward for the service can like can you imagine if you have at terminal disease, and a doctor gave you a sour medicine, they discover a cure for your terminal disease. And they told you this very sour medicine or better medicine is the cure for this terminal disease and all doctors and experts agreed and you see people with your own eyes taking this medicine.

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

And getting better, and, you know, given keyword from their disease, how

00:40:09 --> 00:40:57

the, how much would you enjoy the bareness of this medicine. And the fact is that this medicine even has a bad place. And you know, sometimes we can offer a lot of pleasure early in the morning, and leaving the comfort of your bed and the warmth of your bed can sometimes be hard for, you know, let alone what the Sahaba went through that alone you don't hit it on the hand and all of that. But we can offer a solid Fredrik can sometimes be hard. But when you imagine that this is my way to engender, it's the pleasure of Allah and meeting with Allah subhanaw taala, this service will be enjoyable, and you will start to enjoy it as much as the people in Germany enjoy it.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:33

If you are certain that the immediate consequence of this service is done, and you're certain up and done, and you have hope, in general, this service will be so sweet this Baroness will be so sweet to you. Because you are certain of the ultimate consequence of this, where you need to tell us about hitmen and causes enjoyment of the service when you balasana, hottie bitter kill many awakens the nature to refrain from the prohibitions with ease. Some are

00:41:35 --> 00:41:37

some are basically some is what

00:41:39 --> 00:41:42

easygoing person with some is easygoing.

00:41:47 --> 00:42:31

No, but but here it would be easygoing, you know, yes, that to some extent that has this. But you are given up that enjoyments that will lead to the pleasure of Allah with ease. And he says up to the bar, and I translated it, I wanted to translate it, you know, I want to find another translation awakens by nature, but this is the literal translation and I wanted to stay faithful to what he said. Because it is as if, you know, all you need to do, all you need to do is to awaking yourself nature, you're going

00:42:32 --> 00:42:37

to remind yourself of the first covenant with Benny

00:42:40 --> 00:42:45

O'Meara and forcing us to become a better, Show Hidden and Wi

00:42:46 --> 00:42:53

Fi. Remember, behold, when your Lord took from the children of Adam from the loins of

00:42:54 --> 00:43:01

their loins, their offspring, spread them out in front of him, and said to them,

00:43:02 --> 00:43:18

Am I not your Lord, that is before we came to this dunya that has been in the in the world of spirits, before we came to this dunya Allah to this covenant from us, Am I not your Lord?

00:43:19 --> 00:43:24

Do you remember this? No, you don't. Yes, you do.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:48

Your federa is what remains of this covenant, your good inclination, your sound nature, your sound inclination, the fifth rhyme the human beings to do this, to do this, to do this, to say yeah, particularly when you're in distress, it is that it is, it is embedded in you.

00:43:50 --> 00:43:51

Sometimes it is.

00:43:52 --> 00:43:53

You know,

00:43:55 --> 00:44:14

it because it is it is deep there. You cover it cover to cover it, you cover it with with sins, with denial with rejection with rejection, but it is deep there. What you need to do. If you're a believer and you covered your nature, you covered your sound nature. With

00:44:15 --> 00:44:42

so many layers of ruffler heedlessness, heedlessness, you're a believer right. And this is so what you need to do is to just wake up your body you wake up your nature, just wake gently wake up your nature. And then once your nature wakes up, it will remove all the covers. It will throw away all the covers all the blankets and

00:44:45 --> 00:44:59

sheets and so on will be thrown away. So all you need to do is to awaken your good inclination, your good nature three mind your three minds your self that is

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

Anyway, in a rod your own from Allah, we have come into Allah We will return. So that's the beauty of the word you because once you have done this, your nature will be would find it very easy this America to give up the prohibitions. Sometimes these prohibitions are the desires so hard to give up addiction so hard to give up. But when you read when it's when you have awakened your nature, it will do the good work for you afterwards, it will remove the covers

00:45:36 --> 00:45:56

and the layers of Ron. And then he says what data to send here, Roger, or Babel or Babel Ria that and yeah, Blue Mountain plus foofy Mm hmm. The second level is the hope of the practitioners of spiritual training Gabriela, and if someone has a good a better translation, please graciously shared,

00:45:57 --> 00:46:22

but out of every about the people, for yada yada yada yada means training. We help them in sports in in modern language, but it means training. And here are the spiritual training the people who are pure, who are putting effort into purifying the hearts and their ego. Those are the people who are barberia. The

00:46:23 --> 00:47:12

second level is the hope of the practitioners of spiritual training and reaching a position whereby their intense, become purified. And this happens by Baraka. Okay? Then he says, How do they do this, they're often meant to that rejecting the pleasures of the dunya. And we will not basically spend a lot of time because these are obvious, and we have covered them several times, and we will go back and cover them. And we're repeating ourselves, by the way, you notice that we repeat the same concepts. It's like bringing the same concepts into our conscience. If that is helpful, it's not like every time we want something new, or you know, like new thoughts, flashy thoughts, no, it all

00:47:12 --> 00:47:56

goes back to another lucky winner later on 01 resumes, Ruth Lyon, they will do this, their intense will be purified, if the rejected pleasures were brought off the muscles that will resume shuru to comply with the requirements of knowledge, resume shrewton and complying with the requirements of knowledge, it means that you seek knowledge, because this path, the path of facade was the path of the scale, the path of purification, is not for the ignorant, you know, and the ignorant may get misguided on this path. Particularly when, you know,

00:47:57 --> 00:47:58

they hear

00:47:59 --> 00:48:22

statements that are confounding or confusing resumes or that I'm complying with the requirements of knowledge. So, one needs to learn and one needs to comply with the requirements of knowledge, what is that they took from the people of the boat, that will be in an era, tomorrow, part of the requirements of knowledge is to act upon it, to act upon it

00:48:24 --> 00:48:26

and to

00:48:27 --> 00:48:50

share to clarify to people so once you have sought knowledge for the sake of Allah acted upon it with humility and shared it with the people you will have complied with the requirements of knowledge. And when he says was the saw her do did him here, excelling in self restraint? means what? Exciting

00:48:54 --> 00:49:06

that's the translation and use now. Dude means that bounds or boundaries hanja means what? Hemi means diet. When you're on a diet you're it's called hennion.

00:49:07 --> 00:49:45

But Hemi means what? This. That's why it was called EMEA because it is discipline. It comes from protection. It protects you from something it protects you from you know, obesity, diet, discipline, self restraint, protects you from all kinds of harm. And here you want to excel in self restraint. He wants to excel in self restraint. And that is restraining yourself from anything that will cause you distraction that will impede your progress that will slow you down

00:49:46 --> 00:49:59

on this journey. Then he said what data to satisfy Raja or Bab t Bill polu what data to satisfy the third layer or babbie three bit for loop is the hope of the pure heart

00:50:01 --> 00:50:12

Why Raja? Raja and happy Asada and that is hope in meeting the true glorify this he could have glorified as he

00:50:14 --> 00:50:29

that I tell you that the highest is not john, although we see gender, we want the gender, we pray for gender. The Prophet says How long did you know all of our changing and all of our

00:50:30 --> 00:51:22

humming or supplication is about this he said this to the man who told them that I don't know. You know, I don't I don't I'm not good at your your humming and the humming of my new job and or you know you're chanting in the champion golf, miles Abuja. But I only asked a lot for that it saved me from the * fire and make me into paradise. And the profits as an upset this is this is what we do. We're exactly doing the same thing. We may have more eloquent speech, but this is the bottom line. This is what we do. But the medium was Allah subhanaw taala is the highest of our goals. And then he says Well, what a pathogen albiceleste Yep, which causes longing, longing for the meeting

00:51:22 --> 00:51:36

with Allah subhanaw taala Alamo. None of this will realize and spoils the pleasures of life. And we do we do want understand everything in moderation. The pleasures of life, the profits in atonia

00:51:37 --> 00:51:40

donia is sweet and green, green meaning

00:51:42 --> 00:51:49

beautiful. So enjoying the pleasures of the donut that will help you on this journey

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

is good.

00:51:54 --> 00:52:04

being distracted by the pleasures of the donia that will keep you down behind or make you lose the company of the rightness or something like this.

00:52:05 --> 00:52:26

Is is bad. And certainly indulging or indulgence in the dunya is clearly bad. But in what obviously spoils the pleasures of life does not mean that your life will be spoiled because the law says about the believers, Mohammed Asada Hammonds decadent also he and

00:52:27 --> 00:52:36

whoever does righteousness while in believe while he or she is a believer in executive can be male or female.

00:52:37 --> 00:52:45

Pharaoh No, no, we will give them a good life. He will enjoy life. You know if you are

00:52:46 --> 00:53:00

if you are with Allah subhana wa tada complying with the you know the will of Allah subhanaw taala you will have a good life and you will be able to enjoy your life. And that is

00:53:02 --> 00:53:17

regardless of your condition in the material world, regardless of your condition in the material world for rich, healthy, sick, you will enjoy life. Because

00:53:18 --> 00:53:32

how could you not you know if you have certainty in law certainty in the Word of Allah, you wouldn't be enjoying life. It is the farmland where you say you're sowing the seeds that you will harvest in general in shaba.

00:53:33 --> 00:53:57

Animals I hate to fall. And the last thing is masahito found that causes here you know this hope in Allah causes this interest in the creations, this interest in the creation who needs the creations if he has a lot, you know who would need the creations and who would need to rely on the creations if they are reliant on a loss of errata

00:53:58 --> 00:54:01

but again at the same time, at the same time.

00:54:03 --> 00:54:10

And, and so the Orion falleen or Assad Assad, I love your inner product.

00:54:11 --> 00:54:35

The good friends that will help you on this journey that will remind you of Allah subhanaw taala is an enormous gift from Allah, that you should not have this interesting, enormous gift from Allah, if you find the good friend and that will remind you of Allah and help you on this path. You know, hold on to this friend with your
