00:00:08--> 00:00:11

controller today we'll go over bubble moron cover the chapter on rock paper.

00:00:14--> 00:00:21

I sent you the document, you know, I translated it as watchfulness. Maybe you observance

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

will use observers.

00:00:27--> 00:00:28


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

session we'll talk about the pillars of the prayers and the mandatory acts

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


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


00:00:40--> 00:00:46

chapter on our cover or the station of moral observance or watchfulness.

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

See if I was neither how do we recommend a lot Allah said here in Minnesota society in Babylon merkaba lavas agenda. One of the moment in England where the

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

law mighty said they do not observe to the believer any pact of kinship or covenant of protection.

00:01:09--> 00:01:14

They do not observe the pact of kinship or the covenant of protection, meaning that they do not honor

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

the the, you know, the covenant of protection, and they are not observant of the rights of kinship

00:01:25--> 00:01:29

towards the believers and this was like a description of the disbelievers.

00:01:32--> 00:01:42

He wants to start every chapter with a verse from the Quran that mentions the concept and the word. The name of the chapter, the name of this chapter is

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

from Robert.

00:01:48--> 00:02:03

layup to one happy moment in Illinois, November is a mention of the word cover here as a verb, in the parameter proper would be the verb now and from this verb, which has watchfulness. We're observation observance.

00:02:05--> 00:02:09

So he says maraca Bermuda has gotten Maqsood way.

00:02:12--> 00:02:27

Morocco observance is the constant watching of the ultimate goal. Maqsood cassava. cassava means pursued yoxall to seek to pursue. So the ultimate pursuit

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

and the ultimate goal. The ultimate objective for a believer is always worth

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

a lot. That's it. You know, so the ultimate it is yours. re

00:02:44--> 00:02:51

turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. So in this life, it is your togetherness with the love and the hereafter.

00:02:52--> 00:02:58

It is your return to Allah subhanaw taala earning the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala

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

being worth the loss of data in the Hereafter, and so on. So that's not so that's the opposite of every believer. That's the ultimate goal of every believer.

00:03:11--> 00:03:43

And he says like usually he does, you know, divide everything into three levels. And the levels that shikhara we use this would be just like usual. But what we have the the beginners the finalists and the intermediate ones in the middle, right? That's usual in life, you know, even in an anything that needs a division. You have beginners, you have finalists, and you have intermediate ones that are between the beginners and the finalists.

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

So he says Raja Tula

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Morocco, but would have to say de la era.

00:03:53--> 00:04:10

The first novel is Morocco, but the truth is the truth. And he uses the word that often. Because you see, okay for a shift and how are we the ultimate thing is your friend, the ultimate thing is the fight your friend or your relation.

00:04:11--> 00:04:32

You're passing away the passing away of your ego, the death of your ego. So so he is reminding you all the time that the true and it's not the true one, just the truth. You know, it could mean the truth, or the true one. So the true one, that truth

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

is a fact there is no truth beyond Allah subhanaw taala because at one point it was a lie existed at one point in pre eternity pre existence eternity without beginning, which is an acid, it was only Allah and there was nothing else. So all of us are contingent creations. And the one thing that we want to remember is that despite the fact that he wants to stress this

00:05:01--> 00:05:57

So much and emphasize this so much, that we want to remember that we are his real creations, because he is our real creator, that Allah is the true creator also, true creator means real creator, it means that he creates real creations not illusions, only, you know. So, we are not illusions, we are His true creations his real creation. So, we do have an existence, but because our existence is contingent and dependent on his and not self dependent or not self sufficient, as if it is unreal, as if it is so insignificant that compared to the to the true one, the one who did not need someone to bring him to existence, the one who did not have a beginning, you know,

00:05:59--> 00:06:20

with viral button, the first and the last, the subtle and knowing, so, the, this one is the true one. So you always use this ad hoc, he always uses that attribute of Allah subhanaw taala How can the true one because he wants to insert inculcated in you,

00:06:21--> 00:06:41

your insignificance, your contingency, so that he will help you suppress your ego and be in control complete control of your ego when you think of it your ego is even unreal, you will able you'll be able to suppress it.

00:06:42--> 00:07:03

So the first level is maraca of the truth alarm by constantly walking to him in the midst of by constantly aside a lie Allah, Allah damn constantly say a lie he walked into him by now in the midst of diving in with him, distracting

00:07:04--> 00:07:12

glorification with him is from the hood, because that is the one who is distracted is the one who is

00:07:13--> 00:07:58

in attentive is the one who is almost unconscious that he means here that the glorification of a lot makes you like, you're almost not here. You're so distracted from elevators, remember that the word of it is because it is an important Masada or term that is often use a binary means what else all else other than Allah. So hi, in the Sufi terminology means other than Allah. So when they say and that means all other all else, everything else besides you know other than Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

beside the last time, besides.

00:08:05--> 00:08:44

So, he says the distracting glorification and and that that is, you know, that is true that the people who are people who are generally people who glorify a loss of power, Tyler will be distracted, you know, you will, you will not be pretentious, because pretension basically, is not even, they're not trying to not be pretentious, because they are distracted from the creations. They are not seeing them, they're coming to the master. Just pray.

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

It is not about you know,

00:08:49--> 00:09:06

basically registering in the log of the master Gk many predestinate is not about, you know, seeing somebody it is all about seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala even though seeing somebody for good reason is also

00:09:08--> 00:09:59

you know, part of seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. But this must have this distracting glorification is is truly important for people sincerity and people. Devotion without glorification of a light would be hard for people to become completely sincere and devoted, and without the glorification of Allah subhanaw taala when you walk to Allah with love without glorification, this love will, will befall you into the imprudence part of audaciousness it become audacious in your in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala you become insensitive to becoming considered. The Love has to always be coupled with glorification. Yes, Allah is our beloved, but at the same time, he is

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:41

You know, and whenever you whenever some drop in demand overtakes a father dilemma, the attributes of beauty overtake the attributes of majesty and your heart, you need to balance this out, you need when you see yourself becoming audacious in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala becoming sort of too confident in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala then you need to balance this out. So Father Jamal, like, you know, like the the beautiful like the, you know, the Merciful, the Compassionate.

00:10:42--> 00:11:09

The benefits and all of these need to be balanced out by support Angela, like an Ozzy's, a mighty Jabbar, the competitor and so on and so forth. So, keep in mind that you are yes allies are beloved, but do not basically forget the the glorification of your Lord

00:11:10--> 00:11:14

in the times of intimacy and the times of owns

00:11:15--> 00:11:21

intimacy in your near this area, closeness to Allah subhanaw taala or togetherness with a loss.

00:11:23--> 00:12:19

So he says that he's walking to a lie in the midst of this distracting glorification of him and one more day Nottingham Isla Medina homina means during the near miss harmala it means to carry you to urge you to push you have means carried. So her mirror means to basically urging or staring near miss Medina is near this proximity closeness. So it this is easy to imagine, right? Because when you get to the source of light, the source of pleasure the source of all good when you get to the end line in your race, that adrenaline rush will make you sprint at the end right? And that isn't without Camila it is basically you're getting closer and getting closer it gives you energy to get

00:12:19--> 00:12:40

even more, you know to get even closer. So that isn't without homilist tearing near or urging near this. And that it becomes almost like the momentum. You know you become almost you can pretty slow down you can't really slow yourself down at this level.

00:12:42--> 00:13:26

And then he says wasn't good, embarrassed and reviving joy, reviving joy sorrow or embarrassed reviving joy. bath is what resurrection, you know. So it is resurrecting it is reviving it's rejuvenating. So what is joy, joy. So the joy, basically the sweetness of faith that people start to taste that will revive them will will not only revive their hearts and strengthen their hearts but also concern their hearts sometimes when they are aggrieved when you know they are sad, or they when they're down so it will get sold and strengthen and revive and rejuvenate their hearts that sweetness of faith. When when you when you just like

00:13:29--> 00:13:34

when you take a moment and think that despite everything this you know,

00:13:36--> 00:14:08

God forbid despite your recent diagnosis of like a disease or something, that you're still a believer, you're still destined to the you know, the final station of joy, happiness and being with Allah subhanaw taala in the hereafter if you continue to be a believer and if you die as a believer that itself in itself is consoling and rejuvenating.

00:14:10--> 00:14:51

So this is it. So you're walking about that to Allah subhanaw taala constantly surrounded by these three elements, that distracting glorification you're being distracted from watching the light or the else staring near this The closer you get to Allah subhanaw taala the more energy would have to get even closer and reviving joy, the joy the joy of faith, this weakness of faith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam described as you know, the face the faith of sweet that's weakness of faith will encourage you to carry on and would consider your heart when it is aggrieved by anything.

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

Then he says what dadada to Sania Morocco but on average happy Lake

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

The second level is observing the last observation of you by rejecting all interferences,

00:15:08--> 00:15:49

Morocco, bossa nova and hockey like none of them are other by rejecting all interferences. So now you want to observe his observation, you're now you're observing your walk. The first level, you're observing your walk. And now you want to observe a last observation of you. And in order for you to observe a lot observation for you, you really need to eliminate the barriers, the veils, the hindrances, eliminate them, eliminate all interferences, any more horrible, you know, anything that comes in the middle between you and Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:50--> 00:15:57

So, by rejecting all interferences, and rejecting all interferences happens by

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

shunning any form of rejection

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

is basically a sham to abandon, to stay away from Oregon to stay away from.

00:16:16--> 00:17:09

And then the other odd is rejection. So basically to stay away from all forms of rejection. And the two most important forms of rejection is rejection of his commands and rejection of his decrees. So how do you stay away from rejecting His commands by compliance? How do you stay away from rejecting his decrees by acceptance, patience, acceptance and contentment? You know, so this is how you basically stay away from all forms of rejection, you reject His commands, and you reject his decrees, sometimes also, you know, people reject. And those are the people that are in trouble. The people that reject not only allies,

00:17:10--> 00:17:29

commands and decrees, but a lot of, you know, the truth of the law I released us in his book, or his messenger leads us in his book. And, and those are the people who have issues with faith to begin with, we're talking about the faithful people here, who accepted.

00:17:30--> 00:17:51

Allah subhanaw taala says, mathematically matter of big seven wobbler, you know, the Lord of the word of the Lord has been fulfilled in truth and justice said, in truth and justice, truth in a bar, you know, so whatever a law tells us is true, is the truth, while I'm in

00:17:52--> 00:18:35

whatever I like commands, or whatever, a lot increase is just so his commands are just meaning his orders are all just so if Allah subhanaw taala commanded us to pray five times a day and to wake up for fat, before dawn and sons sign up, you have to know that this is just and you have to know that this is good for you. And yes, it may be hard on us sometimes, but you have to know that this is just from Allah and this is also good for you. And then his decrease, you know, sickness and you know, loss of wealth and this and that and loss of loved ones, whatever the crease, that Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:37--> 00:19:31

know, sends down onto us, we will have to accept them with patience, and not only Patience, patience is for the lower levels. contentment is for the higher levels, is when you are content will decrease. And you say, and this is the type of funnel that is also praiseworthy, that you're when vanishes into his, so you want nothing but that which he decreed, as, like the type of vanishing or for now or allylation as also praiseworthy, you're well had vanished into his, so you want nothing but that which he wanted, that which he decreed. That's when you hear about our beloved Omar laughing, going his son died, or smiling to be you know, and certainly, the Prophet sallallahu

00:19:31--> 00:20:00

Sallam wept and the prophets Allah was able to straddle the two stations of mercy, compassion, and at the same time acceptance and contentment. So his acceptance and contentment of the decrees of Allah did not prevent him from mastering the station of Rama also which has mercy and compassion for his son. But for Abdullah Omar, he had to choose one of the stations who should so he so he chose the station of acceptance and contentment. Some people are like this, you know, the

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

Prophet sallallahu Sallam was you know the perfect model for humanity and for some people, it may be hard basically to be the master the two stations simultaneously and for the love and harmony, he figured that I will if I am unable to master them simultaneously, I will basically choose the station of acceptance and the station of contentment with the decrees of Allied when he was asked he said in La Habra

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

Maha Bala

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

a lot like something. So, I liked to like that which he liked or a lot something. So, I love to love that which he loved.

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

So, this is this is the second one. So, both of them are either shunning any form of rejecting all interferences by shunning any form that

00:20:57--> 00:21:01

by shunning any form of rejection. And then when that

00:21:03--> 00:21:03

one Knock

00:21:06--> 00:21:46

Knock was about is not like not with that not to do with that is criticism not to do with the love is demolishing it's to bring down the and disrupt the knowledge. So, not only the tar road is basically ending, Ronan is imprudence and then the imprudence of Tarot Tarot is difficult to translate with one word, because the Arbroath means basically coming in you coming in the middle between you and Allah. This is your Tarot

00:21:47--> 00:21:48


00:21:50--> 00:22:05

No, it wasn't No, it's within the code. So Tara here means what you're coming in the middle between you and Allah, it basically is warning you not to trip over yourself, not to trip over yourself.

00:22:07--> 00:22:11

Because when on the path of purification,

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

and this is important to know, how to pass that purification, you basically need to

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

need to be acquainted with and learn about your ego.

00:22:28--> 00:22:44

And then because you wanted to suppress your ego, you wanted to purify your heart from its ailments right. And you wanted to beautify your heart, he wants to beautify your nerves, your ego,

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

you know,

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

the ego that is basically

00:22:51--> 00:22:59

that can be purified that naps because the naps is not you know, ego is not perfect translation for enough so because there is enough some of mine.

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

But when we say enough sand we don't have to describe but it is usually

00:23:07--> 00:23:13

a negative connotation. When you say naps and describe it as enough some of mine it is the positive.

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

tranquil. So

00:23:19--> 00:23:48

So enough is basically the rule and when it in this dunya when it is within your in your body in your world, or the existence It is called your ROI, in this world of the existence is referred to as a nurse and enough's could be llamada bizu, the one that commands evil, not mine, the one that's who's that's tranquil, and the one in the middle of the lawanna

00:23:49--> 00:23:58

reproaching the one that blames you, and they all overlap and you could have them all at the same time.

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

And you could have them to different degrees and you could basically move up and down very quickly during the day or the week or the month. So but but when we talk about enough's without qualifier that we're speaking in the in the negative connotation

00:24:22--> 00:24:57

when we talk about enough's whether qualifier the web or minor, then it's it's different. So now you want now you remember when we talked about Tommy when he said that he said to Allah subhanaw taala How do I come to you and Allah said to him, you won't be able to come to me until you had shaved off your ego. left your ego so I shaved off my ego like a snake sheds its skin. Now in order for you to set up your ego, you will be you will have to identify where you sort of like GPS

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

and you will have

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

To learn about it, you will have to learn about that the second says of your heart, you'll have to learn about your strengths, that you promote them and your weaknesses, that you could basically improve them,

00:25:13--> 00:25:18

fix them and so on. In this process,

00:25:19--> 00:25:27

you have he can become very self absorbed, and you can can become very

00:25:31--> 00:25:32


00:25:33--> 00:25:42

in your, in the process of crushing your ego, you can become very egoist, when, and this is

00:25:44--> 00:26:14

in urban America last had a nasty abouna lava Sophia who don't and for some people worship Allah and the Sufi is worship themselves. He said this as a critical Insider, a critical friend, not foe, not an enemy, because he was part of it. Because he also said a Sofia is now administered the payer socialism is a form of suddenly appear

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


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

that is why it is dangerous for people to read,

00:27:05--> 00:27:24

to cut and paste and reading, like, sort of independent reading of certain books is very because you read this and you figure that every time is the greatest enemy of Sufism that or if you love him with a male figure that Sophie's are all mushrikeen and

00:27:26--> 00:27:46

he's saying, Sophie in a different place is a form of being a sleep like, like a buckler, the other one, and he's talking about, you know, some of the Sophie's being of the vanguard of Islam and so on and so forth. And, you know, the 11th volume of his photo is all about Sufism. He was also

00:27:47--> 00:28:33

you know, he was a student in Sufism of Abner via Ahmad who was the student of ethno Kodama, who was the student of of the cardinal dilemma so mercy on them all. So that is why it's you know, it's dangerous to cut and paste work is extremely dangerous. So when he's saying this he is referring to the Sophia prasun Sophie the Sophie's of claims that Sophie's that claim to be Sophie particularly common you know, or the deviant Sophie is particularly common here in organized Sufism, the nomination of organized Sufism, so he's talking about those people that you know,

00:28:34--> 00:28:44

that have deviated there understand that you of sofas, not so prism in general because he is one of them, or at least a critical friend.

00:28:46--> 00:28:46


00:28:48--> 00:28:52

So why is he saying this sofa at NASA don't allow Sophia,

00:28:53--> 00:29:46

you know, he's, he's setting them in your pursuit of crushing your ego you become you become so self absorbed and self centered, all you want is to have that sweetness of faith. All you want is the pleasure of your soul, not the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala you are working you know, so this when you say you when you say I'm not coming to the Dhamma or I'm not going to jihad or I'm not doing this, because I'm enjoying my togetherness with Allah made him in a year, which is my togetherness with a love your being here self absorbed. When you say I'm not gonna go and work and like make a living for my family or you're being self absorbed. All you want is that sweetness of

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

faith is that ecstasy that people experience with complete devotion. That is what you're after. Not the pleasure of Allah had you wanted the pleasure of Allah, you would have

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

Showing hospitality to your guests, you would have taken good care of your family, you would have perfected your work, you would have come to the Jamaica in the masjid, you would use your togetherness with a lot of the sweetness and the ecstasy of Vic would have not prevented you from everything else that Allah wanted to view have a love video ultimate goal, but what you're looking for and what you're after is your own. Basically tranquility, peace of mind or joy, sweetness, ecstasy. So that is extremely important shape here it says Nakamura tar road, basically ending the improved imprudence of standing in the middle between oneself and the Lord, as Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:54--> 00:31:11

is that when you become consumed in your own thoughts, your own aspirations, your own diagnosis of your problems, you're trying to diagnose your problem, you're trying to treat your problem you're working on, you know, this quality, this bad quality that I have.

00:31:12--> 00:31:50

If you become so self absorbed, then you're not really seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala you could become insolent, you could become very arrogant, you could become detached from the creations of Allah. And you could become completely heedless of the Prophet saying, happiness ILA lion found the nest, the most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people, to the people, you could be could become become completely negligent of the Prophet saying, What if he had

00:31:51--> 00:32:19

a heart attack if if he messaged he had to walk with a brother of mine to procure some of his needs, his his more beloved to me than to make it in this state of mind, where the soul is multiplied 1000 times for one month. So basically, to walk with your brother to the Social Security Office. That's what the prophet say, handwritten note, he did not say

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

he did not say any the you know,

00:32:24--> 00:33:12

the year after a matter related to the year after he's had several days needs, some of my brothers needs to walk with Him to hear some of his needs is more beloved to me than to make up the gap and this mystery of mine for a month. Now, where will you find the sweetness and ecstasy of phase in erotic app in your Vic, you know, in erotic app, you have the chance to after Aisha to sit down in the darkness of one corner of the master that may executive repeated and repeated until you find this ecstasy. But is that you know what I want? Is that ecstasy? Well, is it the soul or the pleasure of Allah? If the pleasure of Eliza Massoud and your brother comes to you and says, you

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

know, can you translate this application for me?

00:33:15--> 00:33:23

He sat down with him and translate the application translating the application will probably not give you that feeling.

00:33:24--> 00:33:57

But this is what your Lord wants to view. So, basically when your wants vanish into his wants is his is the the real center it is the commendable Sara anihilation your wants vanish into his ones. So you he like you give precedence to what he wants a view over what you want of him you want that sweetness, he wants you to do this work at this point. Then you give precedence to that which he wants. Okay? Not

00:33:58--> 00:34:20

very important when you start to be concerned about your ego and trying to fight your ego that fight could may make you centered fixated on that ego and you become an egoist when you're actually trying to suppress it or when you're trying to kill it or when you're trying to set it off

00:34:23--> 00:34:26

to third ism he said the third level

00:34:28--> 00:34:51

Morocco battle as it is, is the cabana Nana Mundo he maraca to lessen the mortality is is that valen niara motto hate Okay, third level is Morocco but it hasn't been observant of the eternity without beginning there is no one translation one word translation. For

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

for as

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

the word as that is the reverse of the word the abbot.

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Hubbard would be translated as eternity, about his eternity

00:35:06--> 00:35:12

as that is the reverse of eternity, it is the it is the eternity without beginning

00:35:13--> 00:35:24

it is basically you could call this pre eternity, you could call this pre existence, but pre existence is not sufficient, there is no word,

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

you know, to you know to translate as an into. So, that is why it we translated as eternity without beginning and what

00:35:36--> 00:36:03

is the eternal allow what is the first the first here without beginning the first without? Because the first good could give could imply that he also had a beginning to some people, but we're talking here and how do I be elected? The first without a beginning, I wouldn't build up to that and accessibility, the last without, and

00:36:04--> 00:36:20

so, okay, so Morocco battle as being observant of the eternity without beginning but mattala is sabko by noting DNS dissidents alarm set the antecedents of alarm.

00:36:22--> 00:37:08

And then is the command on the automata heat thereby facing the flag of the heat, in order for you to get into heat to the true realization, after heat, acknowledgement of the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala he's prescribing for you to go back in time. You know, a lot transcends time, Allah is beyond time, time is one of the creations of Allah. That is why there is no difference between the past, present and the future for him. That is why his knowledge of the future is as certain as his knowledge of the past. That is why whatever happens in the future is just the materialization manifestation of what he already knew and decreed in the past. Okay, so a larger instance time this

00:37:08--> 00:37:35

is a concept of that you cannot encompass that you cannot comprehend, because you are at a time creation, you are created within time, how could you understand the transcendent above time or beyond time, it is extremely hard for us to understand this concept, but just know the lies beyond time, you know, so

00:37:36--> 00:37:47

the timelessness, but at the same time, the timelessness of Allah does not prevent him from engaging, timely with his creations. And that's the whole

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

argument of

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

the attributes, the attributes of Allah, the actions

00:37:58--> 00:38:16

that Allah speak to Moses at a particular time, you know, that law speak to Moses at a particular time. That's where the, you know, the actor is which is what what I believe in believe that Allah spoke to Moses at a particular time.

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

Okay, so but basically go into the idea of

00:38:24--> 00:38:39

before time, before the existence, because what is time, the alternation of day and night, before like, created the sun and the moon and the stars and the constellations was, there was no day and night.

00:38:40--> 00:39:02

Basically, there was no time. So go back in time, until there was no time, that is before the first creation was created. And then at this point, stop there, pause there, who's there, hello only, and keep this with you drag it on,

00:39:03--> 00:39:59

you know, with your all the way to your own time of existence, and then be mindful of it. Then at one point, it was only him, therefore, who is the true one him who is the only the absolute Being him? So all of us are contingent creations, meaning disposable creations, if any one of us died? Would it make any difference to the universe to the existence? No, were disposable creations, you could even imagine the world without planet Earth. You know, he any of these creations are disposable pages, because they came to existence at one point they were brought to existence by Allah and their existence is contingent upon not only Allah creating them, but Allah sustaining

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


00:40:01--> 00:40:16

And keeping them in this existence. So you will never be able to face the flag of the heathen work for this though heed the Oneness acknowledging the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. Without this

00:40:17--> 00:40:45

reflection going back in time, at one point, there was a lot and nothing is before anything was created before a lot so of color before the throne in the pen before anything was created, was a line nothing else. So he's worthy of your full attention or not, He is worthy of your full devotion or not. He absolutely all the contingent creations are not worthy.

00:40:47--> 00:40:52

And then he says one more, who is rotten as a hyena

00:40:53--> 00:41:43

observing the materialization more on top of the horizontal as a hyena habit, observing the materialization of the manifestations of it as an eternity without beginning in an Abba eternity without him is telling you that keep in mind, everything that materializes in your in your existence, everything that comes to that happens to you today and everything that will happen to you tomorrow to Allah subhanaw taala has been known and this analyzer, basically pre eternity, in his pre eternal knowledge predetermine knowledge, it is knowledge without beginning, how could you comprehend that you will not be able to comprehend it, you are a creation, time creation, created

00:41:43--> 00:42:01

inside Time, Time creation cannot comprehend cannot transcend time. So cannot comprehend timelessness. timelessness, as if all the universe is is like a box and a lot of Allah is looking at this box from outside you know,

00:42:02--> 00:42:55

now, that is not only the geographical dimensions, that is not that I mentioned that place, that is also dimensions of time, right dimensions place in time, if you study the real relativity, theory, all of these things are interconnected. So all the dimensions of place, can you imagine yourself looking at the universe from outside, he will look completely different to you imagine that this is the whole universe was put in a box and you were able to look at this box from outside all the dimensions of place are in front of you, but for Allah, time also is his creation. So all those dimensions past present future, you're looking at them from your point of existence, your time of

00:42:55--> 00:43:22

existence. So to you there is future there is past and there is present because your time creation and your creation happened in this time, which is called present to Allah path is nothing. What do you mean present future and past time itself was all of its dimensions is his creation. So

00:43:23--> 00:43:29

looking at it from outside is completely different from looking at it from in sight.

00:43:31--> 00:43:32

Okay, so

00:43:33--> 00:44:00

it started as a high end, elaborate, observing the materialization of the manifestations of it as an eternity without beginning in eternity without everything that happens from here until abot it for eternity is basically a manifestation of what he knew already and what he distant already. And then he says, on Morocco, baton, helaas midwater in Morocco,

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

and, you know,

00:44:03--> 00:44:21

observing the deliverance from the predicament of observance, observing your deliverance, your readings, your deliverance from the predicament of observance, because the more active the observant one, the one who's observing

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

his actions is observing his observation.

00:44:28--> 00:44:55

You will basically be observing your observation of your actions, your observation of his actions. At the end of the day, your observation pertains to you or pertains to him, pertains to you. As long as you're observing your observation. Your observation could be a hindrance, a barrier a veil between you and him because the shapes for the safe either as I sent you in the document for a safe,

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

fun as the ultimate thing the anna and i made

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

So that you, you are completely unaware of the self.

00:45:04--> 00:45:10

You have shaved off your ego, you have shut off yourself, you're completely unaware of it.

00:45:11--> 00:45:41

You're not observant of it, and you're not observant of anything that pertains to the self, including your actions. Your father is one of your actions or not, he has. So as long as you're observing your observance, you are not able to have complete the hate. Practice recognize the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala by basically denial of everything, including self denial, including self denial

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

and time comments here that

00:45:47--> 00:46:15

that this is the highest patient ship and how do we get to him a whole lot but at the same time, as he usually says that Chef adhara we have even Elena shaker Islam and how he is beloved to us what happened have we later met him the truth is more beloved than him. So, I am saying that Santa, because we are the real creations of Allah subhanaw taala, we are true, we are not illusions, we are true creations of Allah, because he is the true creator.

00:46:16--> 00:46:19

So you do not have to completely

00:46:22--> 00:46:30

you do not have your your ego does not have to completely die. What needs to die is the desires and wants and the will

00:46:31--> 00:47:21

have your ego. So your desires and wants would vanish into his words. So you want to learn but that which he wants, your will vanishes into his will. So it conforms to his well until as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said there from Cornell law, liberty to them, none of you will have to plead faith until his power, his desires, his will, his inclinations are consistent with that which I have brought to you with that which I have brought to you. So it could confirm it, conformity is what is intended, your well conforms to the will of Allah subhanaw taala and Teddy will man but that which He wills, and your desires, as well. So you reach a point where

00:47:22--> 00:48:12

your wealth vanishes into his your wants vanish in into his and your perception of the creations including yourself, when it comes to not not sure who would in the sense that you will not be seen by creations, because like I told you, you know, is that being kind to the creations being considered being considered meaning that you have to consider them, you know, you'd have to see them and to be kind to them and to do what is right for them about them. You know, all the time is part of what Allah wants of you. So you will still have to recognize their presence and you'll still have to recognize all of it. So, but then in any year reckoning, reckoning, it should in the sense of

00:48:12--> 00:48:29

reckoning, you will not be observant of the self and you will not be observant of the creations. So Komal, healthy below Goodman net, how Kibera laughs Welcome to the biller. Code man how to be with the people without your ego,

00:48:30--> 00:48:30

while coding

00:48:32--> 00:48:47

and be with the creator without the creations, be with it. So once you move up here with the people without your ego, and then when we are with Allah without with the creator without the creations,

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

but then you will subsist. But you will have

00:48:53--> 00:49:12

by Him and for Him, by Him and for Him by Allah and for Allah He will subsist, he will not banish yourself, your ego will not vanish, but subsist by Him and for Him, observing and observing the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:49:13--> 00:49:59

The oneness unity Union have a loss of heritage in and foreign in the multiplicity, observing his oneness in the multiplicity of your conditions, in the multiplicity in the multiplicity of the creations and creative phenomena. So you're always observing of this of his oneness. So you're showing hospitality to your guests to earn his reward. You are walking to the masjid, for his pleasure, you are buying for his cause. Everything is for him and by him because you're subsisting also by him. I'll give you a final example on Federer. You know that from

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

This era of one of our great events in

00:50:04--> 00:50:14

America that was a commendable, the, you know, they could defend our desires other than his desire and

00:50:15--> 00:50:16

kind of,

00:50:18--> 00:50:35

of reckoning. So the moment you know the story of development and the fitness or the, you know, the trials of development. So, the governor of that order the management when he refused to say that the Paradis created was was created at one point of time.

00:50:37--> 00:51:08

And that is the position of Edison in general versus the matassa t position. That plan was created at one point in my life that said, the Quran is the word of a lie was not created, at one point. So the governor of Baghdad upon recommend, you know, request from the hanifa the governor, that order development to be dragged out of the mustard and to be flogged in this square that's outside of the mustard 100 times. So the drag them, they started to flag him

00:51:10--> 00:51:28

the flag them about 16 or 18 times, and then he passed out. So they carried his students, he was the they allow their students to take him home. So his students carry them home. And then he, he came back.

00:51:29--> 00:51:33

The first thing he said to them, is did you pray

00:51:36--> 00:51:42

then he is very sad to them how close is Maverick and give me You give me water to make will do.

00:51:43--> 00:51:44

So they

00:51:45--> 00:51:57

they were marketing. Zero is the this is the only thing that he that he has remembered is that he had not paid off yet with the drag them out of the master.

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

But then they said to him,

00:52:01--> 00:52:04

you you are being flagged and we

00:52:05--> 00:52:41

were we were all crying and you're smiling. So he said to them, You were crying because you only saw the hand of the guard. I was smiling because I only saw the hand up got the hand of Allah subhanaw taala. So I saw that this is a point of finesse. This is a point of German. This is a point of union. This is a point where you recognize that all of this is only his work, it is decreed by him. I am being flogged he, you know who's in my moon, who's in matassa, who's any Khalifa?

00:52:42--> 00:53:34

Who's the governor back then? Can he can he decree anything for himself? Can he protect himself from the decrees of Allah. So what is happening to me is not basically the decree of the governor of Baghdad, even though he ordered. It is not the decree of Al Khalifa even though he order that it is the decree of Allah, it's a point of job. It is a time for example, it is a time for, you know, acknowledging only the oneness, that the oneness of the ultimate cause or the oneness of the originator, the oneness of the one who decrees all things. But this acknowledgement of the oneness of Allah prevented me from ever and this is the point here, did he say before this? Well, this is

00:53:34--> 00:54:25

the book of Allah and Allah is able, you know, Allah is able to protect this book and was capable of all things. I don't need to worry about this, I don't need to worry about preserving, protecting defending his book, because who am I, you know, this type of finance for this type of Java. This has basically been a drop in the stupor of esoteric spirituality that has that has not been demanded of us, that we have been forbidden from because if we will, if we do this, because then who will do the work for Allah subhanaw taala, who would work for the possible loss of proton? If we do this? Yes, Allah promises he would really preserve his book. And at the end of the day Buhari, not Buhari,

00:54:25--> 00:54:59

Muslim, non Muslim, trying to preserve the certainty and so on and so forth. What could they have done without a decree from Allah subhanaw taala to be preserved, how they could have not done nothing, but did they have a role? Yes. And should they have done the role that they do well, are they praiseworthy, by Allah subhanaw taala for you know, rising to the to this challenge and preserving the Sunnah of the prophet SAW absolutely all of their insights.

00:55:00--> 00:55:33

Order the order of the court. Whoever said that a lot needed a lot does not need them to preserve his book, but a lot of decreed that his book will be preserved by them. So to step up to this role, is basically recognize that, in fact, you know, that this is what I'm good at. This is how I will serve the cause of Allah subhanaw taala someone else could be good at something else. And they serve because of Allah subhanaw taala through some other work, but but

00:55:34--> 00:56:10

recognizing the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and that he is the originator of all thing, things and creator of all things, and the decrees come from him should not prevent us from doing his work, and being compliant with his commands and his prohibitions. That's the truth and that we should all aspire to May Allah subhanaw taala purify our hearts and the last minute Allah brings us closer to him. And may we also taste the sweetness of faith and the joy and ecstasy of faith to the quality of us.
