The chapter on desires question or desire.
This session, we will go over
the description of the prayer.
Hopefully we'll be able to close the chapter of
chapter was Iris question 97 and to invoke us and use the focus, being desirous of the word can
refer to unhappy, unhappy patina Raja progmem. Core.
For some, you know, just for practicality, you could call it desire
or desirous quest that is closer to the truth than right, which is hope.
What he felt Roger Roger autonomy is
equal to pseudocode.
This is because is, it is it is higher. This is because rug burn or because our job is an aspirational agenda project is for both is an aspiration,
that we have people that maxent guarantees are like stratification,
where everybody was looking out of date, and
the desire desires quest is a quest upon verification, what does he mean by this?
Basically, he is now talking about, he's trying to split hairs, because
these are both hatchlings apart. And they're pretty much in the same direction is pretty much the same concept. So if you attempt to track
like the word for word translation, for those, it will not be accurate to explain the concept. Because the
is desired. And if you try to basically
sort out the difference between hope and desire, it's a very subtle.
But anyway, you could say that
one of them is basically a reaction or result of an outcome
of hope. So when someone has hope, they start to act on it. But it's not necessarily the action
is still on the spectrum of who it is like your heart was reclining as your heart
or your heart No rose.
the damage is the key because here he says the purpose
is the pursuit is to do
so it is a quest, it is not only a feeling of the heart is a quest. You could be proud without, you know,
embarking on any action, you could still be arrived, but usually erupt but comes with
you know, with the action. Yeah, the ruin and
the use the subject caters, they use focus.
With desire, they use thin focus with desire. So I'll give you an example. That was sort of sorted out the difference between the router and the router, because they're all on the same spectrum. They're all on the same line. So the money is basically
wishful thinking or you know, to wish the commandment to wish so someone in a you know, in a in some place,
let's say whatever whichever country in faraway country. He sees a picture of a woman in the paper who lives in a
Different countries, this person has no means whatsoever to travel. And so, so he wishes the merrier. He wishes the barrier. This is one of the many
amendments, which was thinking.
someone took a piano song, you know, like there is a system if you're
in sister goes to the same college or whatever.
And you've heard very good things about her. You saw her you heard very good things about her, who then you hope to marry her? Like you're, you're not there yet. It's just that it's you hope that you could marry her or the other way around.
But this was the robber barons era for the feminine coming in, she goes to the same college. So like the, it is not impossible.
So yeah, and then you actually go talk to her?
Cuz then what do you say to her the analogy was
or Zapier will facilitate
and allow people to sign up,
which would translate into my desire to marry a dog.
So this is accompanied by one here, you have already embarked on some action you're making that
is not mere hope, but it is accompanied by some level of action or quest, that
you have already embarked on something you have already selected, or you have embarked on the journey or the path.
Is that clear? Clear, the difference between a
project would be hope, would be the result of this hope that quest, the desires, the quest or
the desire that results from this hope, usually accompanied by some action.
So that is why he says a rock band is closer to the truth than Raja or go above it. This
is an aspiration that lacks What does he mean by lacking verifications, it's not a verifiable as per your it
here usually is translated as verification.
Here would mean more guarantees. So it is basically hope that lacks any guarantees, because you could hope in
order to give us
hope to enter agenda, but there are no guarantees and learning he says a lot of us will open with a question upon verification.
Basically, time cautions, that still was wrong, but there are no guarantees. But you are closer here closer to the guarantee of his promise, because he has embarked on some action. And you know, remember earlier talking about in some of the salon, we have when we say you have to set up with you know, I asked you by the right, the
petitioners especially the petitioner is the right of the petitioners that is his response as the response of last time. So as you know, you're embarking on some action or you're starting up some action.
You are confident that Allah subhanaw taala whatever reward you for this action
can develop is why he said that the Sudoku banana toffee, it's a quest upon verification.
And then he started to the divide the degrees of broadband, he said, as he usually does, in every station, he says a lot about my friends, he got a job for his pay levels. Well, so at the end of the day,
when we will talk to you now, let me defer this until we start to talk about the videos.
Then we can talk about the utility the benefit of splitting here. Why do we need to do? Or why do we need to divide every station into three of others? Why do we need to split hairs?
They are very close and meaning they're very comparable. And why do we need to divide the stations into 100. And sometimes, you can see that there is a lot of similarity between the stations. And we did say this before we will be repeating ourselves,
then we do repeat ourselves in all of these. So we'll answer when we start the first pieces of adonijah hula, you know, he divides into three degrees. Now, he says
the talented owner or the first level is the people of the transmit reports. And the people who transmit the reports, the people have knowledge,
the knowledge of the experience, if you put out the the people have the knowledge as effects, the people will know, the text. And the problem is not limited to the text of Revelation, but it could be all the transmitted reports, so that people will have an awareness and understanding of the parameters. And the reports from the Sahaba.
People know this, they know that
they know the nature of the profits of a body assembler. And he says this novel about this desire to
eliminate from knowledge of these transmitted reports. And once you have noticed, this is the benefit of knowledge. This is not just mere knowledge, but it is the beneficial knowledge that will result in Raghava or this desire as quest.
And then he says
he had the multi issue Who
the hell how it is when stimulated is the habit status driving scab in this particular textbook in this triangle, it's the hub. In a when we talk about the health of the scholars we're talking about, they're striving to
basically extract rulings from the factual proofs when they are not specifically or explicitly mentioned contextual reports. So if you're striving for
dependent on to who to who is usually translated as vision or witnessing, that is an issue of the one the true the real, the originator the Creator.
So, it is your witnessing or your loss
of loss of
stimulating striving that is dependent on your mood or dependent upon. So, this driving you know, this this knowledge transfer, the knowledge of the transmitted reports stimulated that desire is quest, and that desirous quest is dependent on show route is not only based on the transmitted the horse, but you have already accomplished that route, which is it I can look
towards the Popeye's if you see him, and if you don't know that he does. So
that is that is my common accent. That is my current accent. And there is no one ever that is higher than this. There is no level that is higher than this that which is the motto of Excel. So what why don't we just use the perfective
method for the prophetic
teachings and forget about all of the details. Why do we have to go through the 100 stitches when we have a hobbyist laying on top of the line?
towards apologies if you see what I want to
say I believe in the district.
The doorman getting the most concise and comprehensive speech is that what the province of Southern serving the most beneficial Why do we have to split hairs every time?
You know come to this class eight o'clock in the morning.
These are your list for the game for the beginners, there is no reason why you should be so confident. Why, why you need to complicate numbers. And then furthermore, the uncertainty there, these are the profits
will be very sufficient is sort of you sit down in a class after this,
you don't really need to
talk about one of these stations
in detail and try to split hairs and try to basically sort out the first level from the second from the third and then talk about, you know, for that which many of the speakers are
considered to be station higher than the station have asked them, but we said that there is no pirate station and the station says, Oh, you need to worship Allah subhanaw taala, as if you see, and if you say that for now, because the stakes are higher than themselves, because you could still be aware of yourself and the rest of the creations you could still be, you could still be the holding, that has the recreations and yourself and your worship of God is that you can see him, but you still have this awareness. But for now, which is complete, validation, complete by the nature of the movement of your people, the
depth of your wants and desires, you know, that's a minute, and then complete annihilation of the ego, which you know, borders on, complete annihilation of the self, which is connected with do which is the existential or existential innovation. And that is
that is not going to be further our does not have any valid implications, but it does
have some implications, although it is not the highest station could be a hard one a lot of funny, meaning it could be
on your way, on your journey, or you feel that the validation, basically, of shoe wear, or you feel that you do not, you're not seeing anyone, even your ego, you have walked away from your ego, that you are not aware, or have no feelings whatsoever of your ego. However, the prophets of Allah and his companions were not in a spiritual stupor, or coma, he was completely aware of his surroundings completely aware of us planning for expeditions and battles and our
completely aware completely engaging with his surroundings that we talked about how in Beverly used to make this sincere supplication or by this group or this body of believers is destroying us on earth afterwards. So, completely aware of the surroundings, but this can be awareness of the surroundings, if you are in a state of shoe who
you know, which is talking about here the state of civil
war supervisors, if you see if you are in a state of suhu what what is great to have no awareness of the surroundings or to have awareness of the surroundings, yes, your shoe
makes everything else fade out. You know, you will not be distracted by
these you know slowed by them you will not be impeded by them because you are beholden your your lower or as if you are beholden you're bored. So, your mood despite your complete awareness of the surroundings, and your complete awareness of your ego is
all of this is not impeding you, because your issue
supersedes all of this, you know completely there is there is no comparison between the infinite and the finite, right. So you should have a BA makes everything else fail. So my son is the greatest Mocambo. He has had the process of someone
that is greater, he would have pointed out for us, so no common sense is the greatest McCollum and you're gonna find your subsistence you know through a lot. Bye
law for a law is superior to your family or your violation, where the
car will show, you know that that all of the surroundings, you know your your awareness of surroundings, mixing with the people without, without them competing you and slowing you down is showing that
there is no competition and you're apart between your desire your level of applause.
Penny covered design. Okay, so we go back to saying to why are we here, talking about all the stations, a different statement from the Prophet would suffice. And he said that Furthermore, we don't need to complicate matters for them. And you don't need to go for the 100 stations on like, Saturday afternoon, in the beginning of the cluster, but people will come here at eight o'clock in the morning on Saturday, there they probably desire, the more they desire a little bit more so.
But we are we can consider ourselves most of the year, we're sort of intermediate seekers.
We want a little bit more than what is offered
But keep in mind for the finalists, they all go back to the statements of the profits or salary, they will be sufficient for them. And they will need more than the eye of the forehead, and the bodies of the prophets of the bodies.
Imagine a room, you know that you're cleaning a room
that has furniture, it's a cluttered room, and you're trying to clean this room. So basically, if you're bringing a broom or like any vacuum, any good old vacuum, without any accessories without any, you know, extra tips for the holes of the vacuum,
vacuum and new vacuum natural will that be a good thing, what it was being their own
heroes, it's good for them for the year.
And then. But if you really want to do like a good job, like
a perfect or a salmon cleaning, then you're bringing different tips so that you could vacuum behind the couch, and behind the armchair and this and that. And that the goodness of your heart. That would be
basically delicate crevices inside your heart. In order for you to clean them. You need to be this detail. And you need to talk about the difference between and and you need to talk about the three levels of relevance. But when you're underwater, the roof you have completely underwater to the roof. Do you need any accessories for the vacuum? Absolutely not just any good old vacuum cleaner.
There are no couches, there are no arbitrators, you don't need to go behind the counters to basically clean anything.
Because the room has been completely unqualified, those are the finalists and for the finalists. One area would be good enough. So a lot of us as an international face that is
the Hadith of the Prophet
himself, but even above that the strip will be good.
So we're not there for sure. So, we need to talk a little bit more and we need to be a bit more
sort of wordy and detail that
defines things into different levels for the sake of our better understanding and better cleaning of the heart.
Okay. So, he said that this rather than that, it would be basically just a result of our knowledge of the transmitted the poorest members of the body which is,
you know, and
Is there any study on an element Barton
Like, it depends on you know, the particular
shave year. So,
or the item of the theory because it modified. And then he said, he says that, When, when,
when the two bodies of water means
what comes out of this, from the knowledge of the interior and the knowledge of the exterior
is the knowledge of a coffee, tea. So, happy to see how the father is not the counterpart of a study on
the knowledge of truth is basically a result of the mixture between the memory for the recognition, the recognition of your heart, how many how many people know, and with the knowledge of the exterior, the knowledge of the body transmits the reports studied Islamic disciplines, very different disciplines, and, you know, are all those people equal in the hour, you know, concerning the final outcome of their studies are those people equal, all the people who go
through college, and come out from college with a ba, ba, ba, ba, fact, or FCM, and so on. And they got the same grades, when they be equal,
in their ultimate pursuit, or ultimate quest of righteousness and
seeking the pleasure of a boss.
They may be
so far from each other, like the ego, as far from each other, as the east and west.
So what is different here is that some have modified the knowledge of the interior the knowledge of the heart, and some did not have this, they only have the knowledge of the exterior with very various degrees, you know, it's not only that it's not, it's not a binary division, it's a spectrum. So it's various degrees, people have more bodies and more knowledge of the heart. So they'll be able to make better use of the knowledge of the exterior
of the product is pointing out here.
Both are necessary, or for you to have the knowledge of it is the mixture of the two that will earn you the knowledge and happy the knowledge of the truth, to knowledge or knowledge of the truth. So here he is, he is still talking about the people who have the knowledge.
But he basically mentioned the model we're talking about today, which is the subject of a lot of division,
or witnessing a lot.
You know, once we get to this level, he said that there is no higher than that, then he proceeds and says, What assumes standard income in 100 fabula. So this
would stimulate the striving, you know, the wrong way that is based on the knowledge of transmitted reports or stimulates driving
and what was almost 100 faster, and it would protect the journeyer from the lassitude or lethargy of exhaustion. So, you know, certainly a Saturday, when
particularly early on, there may be the static will strive, the journeyer will strive, the seeker will strive in the pursuit of a loss of pleasure. And this striving may result in Fatima
laziness. You know, the laziness of exhaustion, you know, after some striving, for particular the enemy on him that he quickly could have saved.
For every action, there is a prime of energy,
zeal and energy and then followed by a time of lethargy.
then he sent this around, but your desire in the pleasure of a muscle kind of pure knowledge of 34 is all the promises you heard in the book of a sudden encourage you to carry on and will protect you from this lethargy that will result from excelling and striving. It wouldn't happen, but it's wet.
You know what, what he's talking about this one static and unlimited factor protecting the journeyer from velocity of external strength is that you will be exhausted, but you will recoup from this exhaustion it will not like you will just completely give in to tiredness or to fatigue. And then he says we're gonna
Rufus, but I'm not
sure either because
Rufus and it will prevent its possessor, if you have this inability emanating from the knowledge of the transmitter the towards its whether it prevents you from reverting into the lousy nest of concessions, which means that lousy nest of power in concessions the lousy Enos of following concessions, and certainly when
when, you know, whenever our members to talk about something, then we always have with us the unfailing measuring stick of you know, the sender of profits,
not to correct them. Basically, sometimes some things will need to be corrected, sometimes certain things like when the now for instance says that lab logo, Roger CPP
perhaps, remember, when we said
that a man will not reach the level of supply
until he leaves his wife like a widow and until he finds shelter in the dumps of dogs for dogs gather, and
one of the greatest,
the greatest seekers, something like this, that is that we find irreconcilable with the way of the profits of a lot of stuff
that I say, you know, forgot about medical radiography, forget about all the, you know, the, the beautiful,
beautiful example of medical,
or will you say, you know, since Malik, er, is a great, great seeker, and so on, let's just accept that statement, we try to find a way to accept the statement without folding,
if you can find a way
around but without conflicting with, you know, the
the profit the way of looking barians then that that should be your, your your goal, your goal is not to
define something we're by this statement may be accepted in certain circumstances for certain people.
But then when you fail, have reconciling between the statement and the way of the profits or loss of different values. Then you say, Hi, when rejected that statement, I will not accept that statement. I will continue to respect America
and continue to listen to America.
Well, not acceptance, I'll just reject that statement because I couldn't find a way to reconcile it with the parameters of the prophet SAW was sort of a companion
which should you take first reject America maybe now.
Third, accept the statement. Second, you know, reject the statement and to continue to embrace the teachings of
beautiful teachings and beautiful example.
So when when she talks here about
basically the mouse Enos of conceptions, we would have to say that she meant the roofmaster are lousy to follow the concessions that are lousy to follow. He does not mean all the events that are lousy to follow. If you are, if you are stuck in the middle of the desert, and there's no food or drink or anything and you're starving and you die of starvation and you find, you know, some around food, whatever, the foundry
This is a rough Sunday.
Consistently because it is basically a loss of product that is preventing you to violate the rule, the ongoing law, which is the prohibition of this food for this Mississippi, it would still be called the rock star even though it may not. But it is a is a concession is this way to take this Ross, Ross, MOBA makuu are on
mandatory this level, so it's mandatory to take
now to break your fast during the burdensome travel?
Is this logic Mr. hypernova,
recommended by the
lender, many of us that are mobile. So certainly the staff does not mean that all of us here that are wired
to take. So he's talking about the office that
he is talking about following you know, the different position tellers that may have that lenient position. And we did talk about this several times before. But certainly, when you're following the lenient positions within the four schools, or positions outside of the four schools that have been mainstreamed, either by collective it's a collective acceptance, like we talked before, in detail,
this is within the layer of Nova, right? Still within that layer,
over time, you will wean yourself off of those shortcuts by weaning yourself off of the need, that made you made you follow those requests or see or take those stones, okay. So over time, you ascend in the layers of bar, and you may have less need for those records. And then you will do things, you know, like, you know, like in the moment now, you used to basically make sure that whatever he does, is permissible by agreement, you know, that you will not eat the fruits of Damascus, because of the disagreement, even though his position is the permissibility of the most
form of sharecropping,
they used to do for particularly for fruitful trades, trees.
Cold water will explain this.
even though his position is that this is permissible, that becomes the secretary, because of the disagreement
that and that would be a level of water that may, you know, some of us may aspire to.
But then for sure, that are not permissible to follow are basically positions that have not been from outside in the form of anger that have not been mainstreamed, by collective espionage or by the acceptance of scholars and so on and so forth.
And also, following all of the minions positions in the Motherland, basically, not the ones that you need,
but basically found each and every lenient position here trying to trace and really lenient, the position
that certainly would not be permissible permission.
So when he talks about, it prevents the possessor from reverting into the loudness of concessions that he's talking about the vows he
is talking about the concessions about concessions in general and he is also talking about the mouse Enos of following the permissible conceptions, because that could indicate some degree of attachment, because you have so many needs, that you need to really follow. So many constituents are asked for so many decisions, the less you have, the less need you have for those constituents, the less you will be seeking them.
Then he talks in the second level about Bravo to our Birmingham when he arrived to see who the
winner what to do on
the second level is not about the winners.
part about how the winners of the spiritual state, we said that prayer is a spiritual state is different from a power station is could be more transients, there are different interpretations. When it comes to the difference between the heroine The problem is the condition and state that you go through my prom is a station that you stay in. So for the people are when they go through those spiritual phases, as the hand changes, for the people have come out, they reach a certain station they stay.
And they don't leave it when the center different macom they have already gone.
And that is how they interpret them, they have already
established in the station or this matam. And when they move to the different majority have not left the first problem.
But they ascended to another one. And then when
he said when he ascended to the second to the higher Welcome to
the you know, you're locked down to the lower part and then you complete it because it was hard to complete when you're inside. But when you ascend, you'll be able to do this to look at it, you know, from above the various view and you'll be able to complete it. So but he's talking in this second level about about how people are spiritual states. And he said this, but other people are the spiritual state that took the minute who
does not need any potential energy and I'm exhausted, does not leave any potential energy exhausted, or abandoned. This is the expression of faith versus the faith that is based on conviction, intellectual conviction. The first level is about the people who are intellectually convinced, you know, of the AP and the bees, they have this understanding this awareness conviction, and they are, you know,
faithful believers, they believe in all of us. But the second phase is the phase of our memory, which is the spiritual state. And this is these are people face to face, can we have this expression, face, not mere intellectual face.
this basically, the use of art more than the use of the Internet. So when they talk about things, when they talk about the loss of
their heart is more, you know, is at the forefront of the discussion of you know, the feelings of the heart and for them
they're different, they're drawn into this they're trapped into this does not leave any potential energy and not exhausted, he's saying that they're butterflies attracted to the light.
This is not just basically an alibi that is based on hype, believe in tin, can I want, you know, I don't have a desire to get to it. This is basically this, this is basically be attracted to a loss of power. This is your love of fire, here,
pulling you towards the source of light, and not allowing you to slow down is it is the energy, it is basically the inertia of the hand. The hand gives you a level of energy that will allow you to slow down. Even if you try to slow down you're unable to slow down you're about to burst by attracted to the light. And it's a beautiful example.
Talking about the fire here, we're talking about a fire.
So there's not the many potential energy partly exhausted, and certainly that is a level that you cannot reach only through your intellectual conviction. But this has to be your your
your lovable must
do this. While I'm with him. It is the Buddha and does not let their resolve fade down. When I tell him that he's a Buddha does not let the results fade out whether
or not to be met and does not leave any aspiration except in the foxhole.
Or the song roll. in Knoxville there's a lot
of noise and accepting a lot you have no expiration except in driving closer to a loss and pedophile and earning his pleasure and arianism the idea being together with them this together This will allow us
all or the valid concept of union with a loss of
what data to satisfy not much of an issue where he officially
understood what he had to show from
year to be
men of different people to talk
to several people
that aren't the status of
the random people of shoe.
When in fact, remember that he said that he said, the first level
of stability in striving that is dependent upon the set of beginning phases of shrivel, who does not want to
this also is not one thing. In the very beginning this was basically
within your site, within your site. Now you're immersed into now it is not.
Your you're completely immersed in shoe, you're surrounded by shoe. It is not like you have some degree of shoe but you are surrounded by shoe damage or damage to water the people of shoe the people of vision vision, people are surrounded by the holding us accountable. And witnessing
his actions and his attributes only. So wherever they look, they are several
will have to suffer from
the start of the struggle of basically is when you look down from the top of the mountain, you have a sense that you know you have a segment the mountain except you did your best selling of the mountain we get to the top of the mountain. Now you're looking at
the other side, you know
and that is the sharp if you're looking from the top of the mountain.
Certainly here is talking about this. This will be you're looking at out here looking at elevation here. And we set this financially via Ireland certainly may be a phase on the way
but the part subsistence by
overtime. If you cover the time itself
is spent a blanket over fire when you go back in to the point where there was no time that is that is your view home and building of the unity and oneness of Allah Coronavirus. europei, holding up the multiplicity of his creation as a creative phenomenon is important for your service of apply because a lot of one's a different service from you or have you in different times when it comes to the Navy. When it comes to the pursuit when it comes to the globe. It is all about gentlemen, it's all about you know the oneness of the pursuit
the oneness of the goal, which is a loss of color. So, this is about aesthetics.
What are discovering these because we want to cover the entire book, like I said before, for us, for us and people who are like us, if we just extend the first level of every station that the same talks about we will be in a good place. If we Excel. In this, you go back to the first level of stimulating striving, this dependent function, protecting the journeyer from the landmasses you exhaustion and preventing its possessor from reverting into the laziness of following instructions. If we have if we accept achieving this first level of the station will be good, but it is it is good to aspire
for the higher levels to aspire for the higher
