Are you able to hear
they're able to hear
smilla salatu salam ala rasulillah
usado. Today we'll go over Babel Aya
And you know, Vanessa, been by
who died in 480 after
the commentary, the best commentary on manassa sirenas modalities set again by inukai. And
we are humbled Allah
van was two divisions, you know as an aside, he is patient basically, the stations
you have different stations
on your way to Allah subhanaw taala. And we said that he has 100 stations.
seven zero he says that he wanted
to summarize the stations.
And instead of talking about 1000 stations, he only summarized them into 100 stations. And those 100 stations are divided into 10 divisions, how to accept 10 divisions, each division is made up of 10 stations.
Each station is made up of three levels, each level, he addressed three points under each level. So, it's 10 times 10 times three times three.
And he wanted to do this for for the ease of our learning.
But he was really
committed to the to those divisions and under this you know, we we started with the division of the beginnings you know expectedly and a bit a at the beginnings and then there was the division of of Webb the gates and now we would go over the division of Allah Muhammad at the dealings usually mamula gets translated sometimes as interactions or transactions. It means dealings.
It means all of this it means dealings here.
He's Rahim Allah. Well I'm machismo Mohammed ad for Astra to avoid
war here has heard the division of dealings it consists of 10 chapters.
every chapter is about a station. So you can basically use chapter station
interchangeably here. So this particular division consists of 10 stations, they are
at a higher carrying almora, paba watchfulness and huruma sank, say sanctification or consecration.
has been refinement allistic karma straightness
at our current reliance,
we'd delegation of trust, but this limb submission
we need more of all of those right.
much sleep Do we need particularly
nowadays, and in our conditions, in our circumstances? How much more test lean do we need? Some of us are lacking the basic the sleep submission. Some of us truly Ebola have they worship Allah on an edge? And
they're just ready. They're quick to say and I can't take this. I can't handle this. I can't understand this. Therefore, I'm going to decide to
to have doubts or I'm giving you know
not submit to it.
Anyway, tough wheat is the only one that has like that you're the translation of tough weed may not be particularly accurate because you will probably not find an accurate translation for tough wheat. The problem was a fee. There's usually tough with delegation, you delegate, usually, in the language in English, that negation is used for delegating to inferiors, right? So you delegate this. And that doesn't serve me, it doesn't mean that here, it means that you're delegating to Allah, it means that you're entrusting your affairs to Allah, it means that you're giving up control, you want a lot to control your affairs, you want a lot to decide for you.
But I did not find a better translation and delegation, because it really is about, you know, interest in your affairs to Allah subhanaw taala. And that is different from reliance. Keep in mind that reliance is when you embark on something, and then you count on a lot to help you delegation is greater than reliance, because delegation is basically saying to Allah,
this site for me, and then help me, you know, so it is, and delegation is, is when you say particularly in times of fit and particularly in times where things are unclear, and in times of fit and you want to delegate to Allah, you want the law to decide for you decide for me for me, convinced me of what you choose for me, and then help me.
Okay, so these are the 10 stations that we'll be going over in the next 10 weeks, Araya caring and maraca watchfulness and Hormann sanctification and that last devotion after the refinements and the karma straightness at tawakkol reliance at the fleadh delegation a second trust, what the slim submission
that Allah said bareburger is the chapter on carrying Kala lavas agenda for narahari eyes is here.
Allow mighty said but they did not foster it. As they should have done they did not foster it. That's another meaning of the idea to foster
as they should have done. So he said carrying you know fostering
what is it that they did not foster as they should have done monasticism? You know they
monasticism but then they did not take good care of it. So I have no Chi is saying that the it's the it's beautiful how we use this particular verse. It is basically to shame us because a lot of blame them for not taking care of a quarterback, an act of worship. They made them they invented but then a light expected them since you made it up. Allah expected them to take good care of it to take care of this property. This monk ship this monasticism and to basically give it its due right several times saying if they were blamed for not taking care of what they invented. What do you expect people who do not take care of what Allah prescribed for them? What a lot, you know,
to do. So famara hackberry is here but they did not foster they did not take good care of it. That's monasticism monasticism as they should have done.
Then it said
and then certainly all of you are familiar with a very famous have a thought about good local pride in the idea has to do with pride. Try Okay, I try it's dependent. The sheep Shepherd is called the rye.
Everybody here must be familiar with Conan O'Brien. Luca Luca Massoud Ananda is all of you are shepherds. All of you are guardians, all of you. I usually prefer to translate this as caretakers. caretakers is a better translation than just guardians or shepherds.
Because there are in his Shepherd, yeah, yes, the shepherd is called dry that is translated a shepherd but here and this can
text to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wants to say that all of us are caretakers, we have some people or some things that are under our care for me or I'm homeschooled Omar Is he the ruler is a caretaker and he is responsible for his subjects were Roger Orion fee and at almost all on ROI yet and the man is a caretaker of his household and he is responsible not only here accountable will be questioned will be asked Miss hold means that he will be asked
or is to be asked. So responsible. So, the man is a caretaker and he is of his household and he is responsible for household for his household that a woman is a caretaker of her husband's
household and children and she will be questioned about this or she is responsible for this and so on. So this particular hubbies is
is telling of the meaning of AI or caretaking
then an amendment however irrational law said earlier is to summon belay Aria to some unknown ballerina we're here Allah Salafi Raja Raja caring is about safeguarding. What is precious through diligence safeguarding what is precious through diligence so known as protection is guardianship. The guard to protect the preserve the soul, you know, and many times they translate this particular How do you combine or could not handle it masala tea, all of you are guardians, I said that some people translate the sign as a guardian, it means guardianship as well. You know, but to take care of something is is more comprehensive than guardianship.
So, caring is about safeguarding what is precious through diligence and
safeguarding what is precious
through diligence, sound, which is which is the garden, certainly people don't the garden that which is not valuable. People garden that which is valuable. And the more you pay attention to it, and the more you're watchful of it, the more valuable it is. And the more you take good care of it, the more valuable it is in your eyes. Right? You know, like, if you're watching your kid, if you're crossing the street, here, you're and you're holding your kid's hand, you're probably watching a kid more than you're watching your own steps.
You're probably concerned about your child more than you're concerned about your own life, crossing the street with with your child. So it depends on how valuable it is. so caring, do we have a lot of valuable things to take care of? most valuable thing is our Eman is our faith. You know, this the the core and the sun, this legacy this heritage that was was passed on to us. If we don't take good care of it that we are not careful about careful about
then we don't value it then it doesn't have value in our hearts.
It's not only your your practice of the deen. But it is, you know, the state of Islam in the world and
the state of this thing in the world you should be you should be concerned about it.
And you should take good care of it. And taking good care of our legacy was a little bit of branching off here. But it is important that we take good care of you know the book of Allah subhanaw taala, the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam this Deen in general. That's the most valuable thing that we have the Do we have anything more valuable than this?
as a people, as individuals as an owner, Do we have anything more valuable than this? The we don't. And that sometimes you know
It puts us sometimes in a difficult situation because we know that the concept of renewal of the deen adaptation to new circumstances and so on and so forth, is a valid concept. At the same time we want to preserve the purity of the deen and not compromise the fundamentals of the deen the principles of the constants
habit of this the,
the bottom line is, is about two things.
If you want to do this, if we want to do this well
then there are two things that we need to do, we need to do the right thing for the right purpose. The right purpose is that they ensure our sincerity when when we do this, and the right way to do it is to let the qualified people do it. You know, and when it comes to like renewal of a certain cam or change of fat, well some of the best and most qualified people are the ones that should be entrusted
with this work, and then as a teacher or preacher, you surround yourself with those most trustworthy people of the time you surround yourself with them you make sure some are on your right side and some are on your left side. And don't go out on your own ever unless you are the you know that the vanguard of them which they didn't have the time
then you may go out and show people the way and pull people towards you know your
readings or your
basically revelations or enhance your inspiration is extremely important is extremely important that that we you know are careful about this we take good care of this and that we don't speak about last part Allah His Messenger his the in a way that is unbefitting of us and the fitting of our level and the fitting of our standard. Ima sF kataragama law is article 23 of his books.
He says what a toughie d be how're y'all gonna say it all in Arabic and then translated because it's very beautiful. It's about it's about taking care of this. The he said what a typography Dini he'd be HVAC for your there will also be my callback where snowbear Amana commodified we will submit our lake and upcycle our costs however it costs a toddler what I like about the Iraq
War party but bait Tikka Yachty what's in our cell you know, however Mia they will not be cytec of Indonesia will de la vaca falafel so don't speak with your own whims and desires about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala
less he will destroy you for your day. Well, usually my Palembang it's a transitive verb sometimes it means that he will take the light out of your heart, darken your hearts take the light out of your heart. When when is the way Monaco modified, he will take away your email and your knowledge will suddenly tonica
nappsa and he will recruit against you your own ego your desires
your last your shaitan and he will also recruit against you your your family and your neighbors and your
friends and acquaintances
the scorpions and the
via your home of your house or
the snakes and that is you know, so everything basically you know he will recruit against you Everything will be working against you. Your car will not turn on you Everything will be just you know, they will not be sorry like I check if adonia then he will spoil your life in this dunya will see the other Baca fellow Cuba and then he will prolong your tournament and hereafter. So he says in Article 22 before this article, he says
Walker voted but I didn't feel Masada. Now I probably talked to you about this before, but I didn't feel musante Elijah but enough. However, while I can talk from what is known as
fantasma, cydonia and then be aware of hastening to
responding be aware of making haste while responding to your to the call of your neffs your ego in your house.
wait, pause, pause. Pause is extremely important and it will
Come down when we discuss the level three, we'll talk about pausing, pause that or wait for the permission of your board. So if you have an idea if you have like, like,
That's why, you know, everybody reads the parameter everybody interprets the program for themselves is, yes, reflect on the program for yourself. But that does not mean that you will interpret the program yourself. What do you know? How much do you know to interpret the Quran yourself? There is a difference between reflecting on it yourself. You know, you understand what it means, you know, but he asks, ask the learned people what it means he asked the most learning of all people the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if you have an explanation, or he asked the Sahaba, you asked the scholars and then you reflect on it. And then you reflect that it is important that you reflect on it, and
think that you are being addressed by this nurse, but it's not like everybody will,
will have their own interpretation of the deen it will be complete chaos, there will be no deed to be to begin with. topless Wait, pause taraka you know, Taka, pause, stop and wait for the permission of your Lord. And then he talks about the permission of your Lord. For the four of us, he talked about the permission of the Lord, it could be wacky for the profits could be an inspiration for the whole year. But for for people like us, it is basically to wait until you get enough support from your life and your peers. And that is how you know that maybe I should take another step, you know, and so on. But for the majority of us the public
reflect on the poor and yes, the Paradis should basically
relate to the poor and and reflect on the poor and
collect the poor and instruct you in your daily life. Let them instruct you in your daily life. But that does not mean that you will be the one to interpret the graph
is not for us. Likewise, every time you come across an idea or a hobby that you find difficulty with, wait until you find the answer that will not only give you comfort, because the idea here is not about your comfort. The idea is about your conformity to what Allah intended what the prophet sallallahu Sallam intended. But if you have not found comfort yet, wait, you know, show more submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala get, you know, learn more about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala at one point, you will have comfort, but don't be demanding of this comfort. Like every time you come across something, don't demand comfort as if you're entitled
don't demand comfort as if you are in spite of the discomfort, don't demand certainty as if you're entitled and we will come to this soon, inshallah. So,
it is very important that we take care of this religion and it is the most valuable and most precious thing that we have. You know, I have to say this because I was talking about saving that which is precious, is the most precious thing that we have saving that which is precious through diligence, diligence, and
you have to be very diligent.
And like I said, if you if there is something precious, you know, people that do restoration of artifacts, and some of these artifacts could be extremely, extremely precious. You know how to handle them was with extreme care carefulness.
And that's what you should do with that which which is most precious to us.
That is once a is important, the prophets of the Lord is Adam said, my beautiful, loving, obedient. This was reported by Buhari from Allah on my Barack Obama via elrond on him, Allah had not sent any messenger except that they tend to cheap
or profit except that they tend to cheap. They were shepherds. And, you know, Hunter reflects on this and he says that sheep in particular, they run away fast. It's not like camels that the camels are usually tied. camels are more rebellious than sheep and when camels run away, they are
I have a ticket to bring back. But the human soul because there is this pure federa is easier to bring back than camels. It is more like sheep, you know, not like camels, you could bring it back. But keep in mind that every time you bring it, you bring it back, it can run away. Because unlike camels, usually camels are tied, sheep are left on tie. And then one Shepherd, caretaker of sheep will take care of a large flock and then they will just disperse and run away in different directions. So he has to be on top of them all the time. And he has to bring them back. And he has to bring them back gently because sheep are not vicious, they and they should be treated with mercy
and should be treated with gentleness, yet, he's running all the time after them to bring him back and make sure that they don't turn away also see are much easier, much easier prey than camels. So even little predators could prey on them, you know, on the lusts, the neffs and so on.
The the, these are not little predators, but even little predators, even the different desires, you know, even flimsy like flimsy desires, could destroy the sheep and hoard the force. So
is, is basically that requires a lot of diligence.
I heard this I learned a woman, I heard this from a learned woman, she gave the example of the internet, she gave a beautiful example. And it you would expect this example to come from a woman
that the example of intentions as toddlers, your intention as your toddler. So you, you know you're near your intention, you sent your toddler down somewhere in the living room, and you walked, you walk anywhere you write left, and then you find your toddler one time in the bathroom one time down the stairs. And one time in the kitchen while doing some mischief or someplace you know, and then you bring your toddler back you sit them down, and then what you get busy for a minute, and then they are he or she or
somewhere else. And then so it requires that diligence, like you're sitting in front of him or her all the time they move you bring them back because they'll get into the kitchen they'll get in the bathroom, they'll do stuff you know that's a make sure that you want to protect
but he also said that the toddler at one point grows up so you're near you know after you had done this for some time you leave your knee
you sit your knee down you put your knee and someplace and then you come back and you'll find that in the same place you may have grown up just like your toddler grows up and he has requires a lot of trading and it requires patience and requires time but it's it is this diligence in that area.
So we're talking about today I As salam ala Anya safeguarding was precious to diligence. Well, he had authority the agenda and it is three levels.
adonijah to jewelry is with our man, the first level is taking care of the actions what data to sanitary items. Well, the second level is taken care of the state's what darada 230 sorry, is
the third level is taken care of the times. And the times would basically include the actions and states it's taken care of
your entirety because you're made up of you know, moments.
So then he talks about the first level which is the AI at an automatic taking care of actions. He says they are married to a man as for taking care of actions it means federal federal habitat area, the Federal developing them, by belittling them, you invest in your actions by belittling your actions. Once you see your actions to be like big enough, good enough. You know whether your actions these are acts of worship. These are this is your service to Allah subhanaw taala he should always see them as too small and the fitting of his
greatness and his generosity and the fitting of his greatness and his generosity. Otherwise if you want you know reckoning if you want you know
start counting what you have done for Allah subhanaw taala then allow us to count on you what he has done for you and you will always be the loser. So, the hero habit activity had developing them by belittling them, righteous predecessor used to say later on moreover in love a philosophy son, tada who, who said, that good deed will not be complete laya Tim and Morrow fella This is a facade except with three qualities, three things
you do, to hasten to it expedited, the
zero to be lifted at Let's be lifted in your eyes. Everything that you do for Allah subhanaw taala is still too little
to unbefitting of His Majesty and His generosity for sutra who have to conceal it. So you hasten to it, you hasten to it to appear Oh, to be led to that meaning that he will develop it because if it is too little in your eyes, you'll do more of it right? If you think that this is too little, you'll do more. And then after he had done this, after you develop after you invest in your action, increase it promoted develop it by always seen it to letter, then you can seal it, cetera, you cover it and if you if we are able to do this, that's the first step you know that that is a momentous step, it is extremely important I hasten to add it here to like our ability to
hustle and bustle he said
layers are layered on top of Lahu Manasa la he cabin up on las panatela not make equal one will hasten to him and one who was slow to it. So hasten to the pleasure of Allah be literally are the leads, meaning develop them
and then conceal them as the first cuz then he said, Well, pm we'll be having another in LA.
Now we're talking we're talking about it, basically how to take care of your actions, three points. The first is, you know, developing them by belittling them the second one to mobium and
establishing them without observing them, establishing them without observing them. We talked about this
you know, several times before right? We talked about how you should establish perfect established academic Salah a few slides about the establish the prayers to perfect the prayers to establish them itself without looking at them because when you establish something and he tried to do it and you try to perfect it, you will be naturally you will be inclined to be being fixated. You know your sight being fixated at this very thing that you are trying to perfect. And that is what he is warning you against. Don't be looking at it. Don't be looking at your arm and your your butt but you're looking at it only to perfect. And then you are
looking beyond that. You're looking at the intended, Maqsood, Allah, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala because that very moment, you're looking at it could be a barrier, an obstacle between between you and Allah subhanaw taala.
Then he said what he
lacked Allah as a unit.
So you're establishing them without observing them and in accordance with the knowledge natural enemy in accordance with the knowledge basically the last one without bar basically, you know sincerity devotion and correctness to tab and to be Salalah itself to follow the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in everything that you do.
Learn act as a human behind, not for self adornment, not for self adornment. Self adornment does not have to be ostentation has plantation is showing off. Design could be to your own self. He could be people could. Some people do this. They look in the mirror for half, like you know, half hours and somebody because they are they like to look in the mirror they like to see they're handsome.
So that also could be true spiritually. You could be doing this and this is still for evidence. You're basically looking at your good qualities and you keep on reviewing your good qualities.
That is looking in the mirror for too long. It's a different type of mirror but still looking in the mirror for too long, you should not be doing this.
Well, I'm married prior to that well, for he deletes the hair The more I add or more I add, but both as well as for taking care of the states that have we said that the hand is the your state at a certain time and macom and crowd is more usually the front we said before different ways of differentiating between the heart and the McClung but the heart is your state now, is your state Now the macom is a station that you have reached that you should be
settled. But how is your current state? What is your state now and I had that a while taking care of your states here has a spiritual states it means that one considers college they had more if they're accepting ostentatious that you know they're accepting their work they consider it all ostentatious. whole, you know not genuine. When he Athena Tasha born
when he epi Natasha bond, they consider their certainty groundless. They consider their certainty groundless, so that they are always looking for more certainty and but I am Allah is Allah. You know, I was looking for more certainty. Allah Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah said to him, Have you believed yet? And he said, No, I have many. But I want comfort for my heart. And like I said, going back to this, I want comfort. I want comfort because a lot of people want comfort and I sat down with a young man who, who said, I have been asking a lot for this one for certainty for comfort, and he's not
he's not responding. You know? Why? Why should I not get the comfort when asked for it? I'm making sense here. And I'm asking for more comfort. And Someone may say what a Brahim asked for more comfort with keep in mind that Rahim was deserving of more concrete, deserving of more comfort. Yeah, pain is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala you get it? When you deserve it, you get more of it when he deserved more of it. You work more for Allah, you purify yourself
Do we really think that we are deserving of your pain? Despite all of what we do, despite all of our wickedness that Yeah, and I'm not trying to this is not trying to be like basically a gloomy or like morbid or anything but but we're really we're really not doing well. We're not really doing well. Most of us are not doing well. And people who think they are doing well are the people who do worse in work. So
So this person this brother did not really understand the concept it is basically when people do this when people demand the opinion give me a p Now show me something in a dream. You know show me a kurama like America or something you know how what do you mean I want your pin like How could you be demanding of this? Isn't this exactly like the art of price? Well, para la la la, la la la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, FC moto Kabir.
That sort of last minute Allah said the people who do not
expect or the are not in anticipation of our meeting today sup had the angels have been sent down to us or if we can only see our board. They wanted the epi Cobra, he pointed up. They wanted up what they they want to reject a lot considering that they're the man that we are paying to be or to to be transgression, to be basically overstepping their limits they overstepped their limits by asking for it when they
not deserving of it. But he was not considered to have overstepped his limits, because he worked for all the appeal that he had. And he will just right there at, you know, had that level where he's asking for some more, and he is asking politely for some, for some more, I just want more of it. You know, this is the most precious thing I have, and I want more of it. But look at what Abraham have gone through, to reach that level of yaqeen and to be deserving of more you can he used to be at oma by himself, he can front the world by himself.
So was he not deserving of your Absolutely. But then
as in sort of a route where people live in a comfortable every once in a year to Morocco.
The lady men and the this believers say, had he
had he received the A as American or a sign from his Lord, a clear manifestation a clear sign from his Lord, I had to move up about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam put in a bio the Lumia Shangri La human and say alarmists guides whomever he pleases, when he guides you want your pain, Allah gives this gives this guidance gives this up to one who returns to you work for it, you get it, you work for more, you get more he become the man then then you are shut down simply and then you reject it. And then Allah subhanaw taala can never drive you away from his door if you become the man that yes. With with a sense of entitlement. Yes.
Absolutely everyone who asks for a sign prematurely prematurely, they may not get it or if they get it, it may be
like the people who ask for the Last Supper have did not honor that sign. After Missy Holly said I passed away he did not honor having witnessed that sign.
So it is important that that we are we we consider our certainty to be groundless. And we ask
when you know when we're deserving. And we asked for lightly.
And then we will look at how the Sahaba were getting were seeking these miracles. And if it's not like the prophets of Salaam was not sent with miracles, it's just that you should not be feeling entitled to them. You should not ask for them like you're entitled. But the ones who did not ask for them the Sahaba how many miracles did they see at the hands of the prophets? How's that? How many Americans the last shoulder through the prophet sallallahu Sallam so many Americans, you know,
like, I can't even count them huge miracles, but the Sahaba saw, you know, the water spray coming on between the fingers of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in great American theater Tom, you know, making the food abundant.
And you know, the the animals speaking and men but
also weeping and so on inanimate objects.
So they saw many because they were deserving of the once you're deserving and allow it show you more to give you a more certainty and to give you more comfort, but you don't demand them before you are deserving of them. So
well and er but it's the other one is to consider is there an excelent ostentatious when he Akina does a bond or certainty groundless what hallertauer their state a mere claim. If you consider your state a mere claim and sometimes you feel that you are in a good state, sometimes you feel that you that
you are in a good state and you're happy with your state. It does not mean that you will all you You are not suspecting your Eman you know that you believe in Allah subhanaw taala but you're not confident about it.
And you're not confident that this is how
you how you will reach the end line and you're always concerned you're always anxious. See
if there is anyone who is in a good state whether it would be like someone like a voter that for instance, who enjoy the good state and good state palms and good everything good relationship with Allah subhanaw taala who will be people like that or the other one and I would not that is this is quite telling
the importance of suspecting yourself so I would have that or the alarm when he was dying and this was reported back when I'm in Kenya and his wife said that when he was dying on his deathbed, he was saying
many are metal mystery mugs I have many ominously yummy however many are missing this out he has the
basically learn from from from this for for who would work for the time when he will lie down like this.
will learn forever the time when he will lie down like this. We're waiting for this.
Many are met and Miss Leone you have who would work for a day like this day is my last day who will work for an hour like this hour which is my last hour.
here is either that I have from Surah Allah subhanaw taala says when open Lebowski the taboo of Sodom, Kemal and union will be here when Mara whenever a woman own people Yanni m Yama Hoon, and we will turn away their hearts and their sights
as they have refused to believe in it the first time or as they have rejected that rejected camellia Mulino, BSD rejected the first time, one of our own people the enemy on my own.
And we went
and let them wander in there,
transgression or there to be on.
For so I'll put that down here is saying that may be
not accepted. Because it's not just that you know, that.
It is the conditions of that along with most of the requirements of leveling.
What comes after that
is that you accept every he every command that comes from Allah, you accept it with compliance and conformity and every decree that comes from a law you accepted, was read
accepted but contentment. So he was afraid that maybe,
you know, I was not accepting enough or I did not accept His commands quickly enough, or is decrease it up?
My heart did not accept them with enough contentment.
never trust never, never trust your hand. Never trust your state, your spiritual state be always
worried about your spiritual state. Because it may be it may be an illusion. It may be an illusion, your spiritual state, it may be an illusion that you just like to believe.
And then he says, Well, I'm sorry, I would have caught reactive Mr. heartway. And as for taking care of the times, it is to pause with every step and pause with every step is basically to take care of yourself pause. It is important to pause. We must really need to learn this.
It is important to put before you
because that is basically the most important activity people embark on nowadays is to post on social media.
Just if this is the most important thing in your life, it it just pause before you make a pause. Read it a few times. Don't even with emails here. I learned this from one of my I learned recipes. It's a beautiful advice that I've learned from one of the Messiah. He said you know, he
meals are not like the past we used to write other is it used to sit on our desks for some time before you send the letter you proofread the emails are different, you just type send scan, you can take it back. Don't send any email of any important you know substance.
After you have
saved it for some time and credit a few times you so write that, save it as a draft, don't send it and go back and read it a few times. And then send it would you use much pause shape after Providence Ilana rock and roll I said what a rock top isn't that bola? Pause, wait for the permission of your board, pause, wait for the permission of your Lord that permission will come with you know, the calibration after deliberation you get the permission he sent the email you cannot, you know, you just he came to overestimate the impact of words the impact of words on people. So before you post save it
the the they give you they're kind enough to give you that feature right.
But I don't know if they have it on Twitter.
But save it and then go back read it one more time or a couple of times depending on you know the substance, the gravity and whether it may hurt the feelings of some people whether it may be
alive false that you're spreading and then you go to your grave and this false continues to circulate. So it this is extreme pause with every step the active market we pause with every step
that he said so many of you burn hot we suffer
from any Aviva on hot we suffer min Ross made some money at the bar on hot way that is detached from their steps. This far Eamon resume by purifying
mere means of purifying the heart, man arrest me from their ego, but rest is not. Rasmus plasma is what drawing
it is the imprint is the author,
all of this is rough harass. So basically
you have been working on your ego, but then stem
some of the,
you know, imprints of your ego are still there, in purifying your heart, your actions you're aware. So, now it is time, it is time that you completely move away purify your heart, from the remains of your ego, not just your ego, but the remains of your ego.
It is like someone who is trying to sell, you know,

Now they are looking at their macom they move away from their macom the move away from everything that belongs to them that pertains to them. And that there is nothing that they that is between them Allah subhanaw taala no barrier, no veil between them. And Allah subhanaw taala that he said for many years about God software, and finally to refrain from from seeing either purity.
But Russ, Russ, before we move to the next step, Ross motor is the remains of their ego. It could be many, many things. It could be your very alibi that that could be your resume, because these sort of zoom versus the haka. The haka basically is the the your pursuit of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala you're doing this through you're a bad through you're a bad but diabetic can become rosu.
We talked before about our de facto wedding Gemma you know the values of dispersion and the value of union and together
Many times there are so there are so hard on the flip or the valleys of dispersion, there is so could be many, many things here on a bi that could be resolved here like is sometimes also your your organization that you work for your project that you're working on, could be as it is, you know, harassment less, you know,
you're completely fixated on the intent from from this, you know, to serve your organization to serve your project, your whatever it is, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you take care of this project, you know, you're part of the relief committee in the muster. But then you start the fight with our committees over funds. And then the fight could become like a dirty fight.
We because this committee that our committee wants more funds relief committee wants more funds. Wait a second, everybody who this you know, you're really getting you're tripping over yourself here, this is all for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala How are you making these things into our assume that value from Allah subhanaw taala hinder you from Allah subhanaw taala your organization and some other organization, you're you, you basically promote this particular college, had a friend of yours promotes another college, the teaches Slavic studies, and then you start to fight over which one is is better. It is also all of this is basically in LDAP at the federal the valleys of
dispersion. If you are conscious and aware of your goal, your ultimate goal, you will do everything was said even if you fight for more budget for your committee, that the fight in the sense of you know the metal seek
more funds for your committee, you will do it with Excel, it will never get out of control will never become their a dirty fight. Even when you fall even when you suffer a loss and you are working for a loss of generality for the sake of above, and you suffer a great loss while working for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala great defeat while working for the sake of Allah you fought with
with Waqar with grace with beauty with composure. The Fall itself will be a graceful for people will look at you when you ascend, you're ascending with grace. And when you are falling, you're falling with grades. The people who were not convinced of you while you were sending with grace may become convinced of you. If they see you fall with grace, because not everybody falls with grace. A lot of people can manage their sin and win with grace. But very few people have those are the people that have to feed from Allah subhanaw taala can fall with grace. And people who know their ultimate goal. Have the ultimate pursuit will be able to ascend with grace and always hold with grace.
For many other bands, who the software here and then finally to refrain from seeing their purity. It is basically you have done all of this work and now you have purified yourself completely from your ego, the remains of your ego, your stations, your hands, your McCombs and everything. Don't
don't don't look back, because this is the you look back and then you you trip. Can you imagine if you're alone, if you're seeking proximity to our last thought and getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala your site is fixated on your ultimate goal. Once you look back at what you have done, and how you were able to purify yourself, you trip and fall, you look down, you can fall from the top of the mountain. If you're climbing a mountain, you look down at what you have done, and how you have been able to come all the way to the top. And that very that one look can bring you down all the way to the bottom. So you purify yourself from all of the remains of your ego. And when you look beyond
that purity and don't look at that purity in and of itself, because that purity could be a veil between you ever lost
to prepare to win.
