The last little song that allowed me

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

to proceed inshallah, today we will have Babel circa the chapter on trust or the station of trust in the first session on the scale or dissolve and the second session, which will be on third, we will try to finish Babel, the magma the chapter on emammal, leading the prayer, and we will also

00:00:31 --> 00:00:41

try to finish the Boo Salatin married or the chapter on the prayer of the sick. So let's start with verbal cerca

00:00:43 --> 00:00:49

de la Donna said here in the station of trust or the chapter on trust, kala was

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

either 50 or leave it

00:00:55 --> 00:01:48

alone mighty said, when you fear for him, cast him into the river, Allah Almighty said when you fear for him, cast them into the river, but a second, which is the chapter on trust in our heart, and we will come back later and and define a second usually starts with an idea from the Quran and then he gives you the definition and then he gives the classification or the level of this station. So maybe before we address this idea, let us go over his definition, or his description of soccer is not necessarily a definition, but it is basically a description of the importance the value of the station of setup he considers to be the spirit, the soul of the stations of the other stations of

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

the fleet and asleep

00:01:51 --> 00:02:37

of reliance, delegation, and surrender. All of them this is the fountain from which they flow. Is that expected or not to have trust in Allah subhanaw taala to trust the law? How could you rely on him without trusting him? How could you surrender to Him without trusting him? How could you delegate to him without trusting him as Exalted is He? So he says a fickle to salado is good, and these will be different fray, you know, weddings, but they pretty much mean the same thing. Ultimately, it is about their importance, they are the core the essence of the other stations. So he says, a third party.

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

Trust is the essence of

00:02:41 --> 00:03:00

or reliance. So I die in the means that the black part of the eye, the pupil of the eye, of if you imagine talking to be like an eye, the dark part or the black part, in the middle is considered the most important part of the eye, because you know,

00:03:04 --> 00:03:15

has been traditionally considered the most important part of the eye, they give it a lot of importance. Anyway, we know that the pupil is in the middle of this black part and

00:03:16 --> 00:03:20

light rays of light goes through the pupil to retina.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:52

That's a different discussion. But as soon as I talk with the SEC is the essence of it says when octo to the errata fleet hydroxylated noctel directed the fleet to be the center of the fleet and the center of the fleet or litigation. That era is the center knocked out of the air as the dark in the middle of the center. NACA is the dark, that is the center is the circle. So the NACA director fleet is the dark in the middle of the circle of the fleet

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54


00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

asleep spleen

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

and the innermost core of this theme

00:04:01 --> 00:04:33

is also the innermost part of the heart. So it is the innermost part of the spleen. In other words, this is the spirit the essence the core of these different stations without without having trust in Allah subhanaw taala you will never be able to reside in any of those stations, you will never be able even to visit them without trusting in Allah subhanaw taala with your entirety with your with all your heart.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:58

So going back to the example to the idea that the chef selected in the beginning, he selected a an ayah from Surah causes about the mother of Musa alayhis salam when she feared for him. Allah subhanaw taala told there when when, when for when they gave that decree that every newborn made newborn

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


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

Israel, when the slaughter are extremely, extremely killed the Moosa heard of this and

00:05:12 --> 00:05:24

she was afraid. And a Lost Planet Allah gave her a command through revelation. And Allah subhanaw taala is a 50, Allah FMP for the Ummah to copy Allah.

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

So Allah Almighty said, when you feel for him, cast them into the river, when you fear for him, cast them into the river and don't have any fear or any grief, we will bring him back to you. And we will make him of our messengers. So, health requires a great deal of trust.

00:05:50 --> 00:06:10

He's telling me, you're afraid for your son, cast him into the river, and leave her and walk away. This is your newborn son, and without trust in Allah subhanaw taala she could never do this. Now it is important to say here that she was receiving revelation because the

00:06:12 --> 00:06:19

last one of Allah says in the Quran, clear view all high in a Muslim We have revealed Moosa to the mother of Muslim.

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


00:06:23 --> 00:06:46

something of this nature would not apply to us, because the most that we could receive from Allah subhanaw taala is what inspiration you know, in ham, ham and ham. As we said before, we said ham, which is the inspiration the inspiration of the heart, he said, local which is basically that intuitive perception

00:06:49 --> 00:06:53

is these two concepts do not

00:06:55 --> 00:07:12

do not have the power to negate any part of the Sharia. You know, you see a certain father, a father with Moosa the story of a father with Musa and sort of the gaff will cover kill the bad boy and you know, may the hole, punch the hole in the

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

in the ship, and

00:07:16 --> 00:07:22

he's receiving a revelation. Now, if you have someone do this, and

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

nowadays, if you have someone do this,

00:07:27 --> 00:07:43

they go to jail for this. And then if you claim to be receiving any, to be hearing any voices, or anything, you will be examined to make sure that you're mentally competent. And if you're mentally competent, you'll still go to jail.

00:07:45 --> 00:08:13

There is a huge difference between revelation wacky and inspirational have inspirations out in Hammonds out do exist. We people need a lemon, though, because there is something as we said before, beyond knowledge, there is something beyond the information, gathering information, harboring or hoarding information, collecting information, being informed intellectually,

00:08:14 --> 00:09:03

to make you actually pious to make you actually make the right decisions in the different circumstances and the different contexts and make that decision that is most pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala, you do need the guidance of the heart. And you do need that, you know, intuition to make the right decision, yet in Hannah's out never circumvent the Sharia never circumvented the law, they compliment the law. They never substitute. They never circumvent. And that's the difference between why and it turns out and why you could receive commands from Allah subhanaw taala to do things like other than, you know, you could receive commands from our last Sanatana to do things

00:09:03 --> 00:09:04

like almost

00:09:06 --> 00:09:09

to throw her son or to cast her son into the river

00:09:11 --> 00:09:15

is not clear. That is very clear. And the you know,

00:09:16 --> 00:09:35

President Obama was in one of his speeches was talking about how Ibrahim's you know was commanded to slaughter his son. And, you know, if if we see someone doing this nowadays, we report them to the police. Yes, he was he was talking about he was talking about how religion should be

00:09:37 --> 00:09:39

to some extent,

00:09:40 --> 00:10:00

sidelined from public policy, that public policy has nothing to do with religion. You know, the example that he was giving the the simple answer to this is, yes, absolutely. Right. If you see someone trying to slaughter his son, nowadays, you try to stop them. You report them

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

to the police. But there is a difference between someone who is receiving it was receiving revelation and someone who was not we don't have anyone receiving revelation nowadays, prophets all sudden was the seal of the prophets. Anyone who claims to be receiving revelation would be a liar. Those prophets, however, did prove that prove that they were actually receive a revelation from God.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

Through multitudes of miracles,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:42

they prove to their people that they were receiving revelation from God. So it was not hard for the people to believe them to believe that they are actually receiving revelation and those who refuse to believe a true prophets of Allah subhanaw taala, through messengers of Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:43 --> 00:10:49

they rejected them out of arrogance, and stubbornness.

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

Then in a moment, we will carry on to address the different levels of security or trust in Allah subhanaw taala he will say

00:11:01 --> 00:11:06

that it is three levels. As usual, he says,

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08


00:11:09 --> 00:11:12

he asked, What are the main kawamata

00:11:17 --> 00:11:39

as the first level is the level of despair, we're here as Rob demon mukalla, Matt. And it is the servants despair, of fighting off the decrees, you lose hope that you can actually fight off the decrease at one point, you understand that you cannot fight off the decrease?

00:11:42 --> 00:11:47

Do we need to repeat the you know, there is still free choice.

00:11:48 --> 00:12:30

working within the overall supreme will have a loss of pinata and subservient to it. And we have gone over this several times before, so we probably don't need to repeat it in detail. But he's saying that at one point, he figured out that what has been inscribed in the preserve a tablet will come to pass. And that will not stop you from making the right decisions, making the provisions taking the precautions or doing your part, engaging the causes, that will not stop you. But here's what it will do to you. He says number one,

00:12:32 --> 00:12:44

thereby abstaining from fighting over the shares of others. So you'll you will lose hope that you'll be able to fight off the decrees of Allah. So you will abstain from fighting over the shares.

00:12:45 --> 00:13:02

layup Hold on one izotope XL. And XM means that shares when Azhar if is the fight over the shares, fight a meeting here fighting over the shares of others, like you do not compete

00:13:03 --> 00:13:52

with others, you compete in parallel lines, you don't fight with them over, you know, the donia because you know that donia has the shares and this donia provisions, everything has been divided already. So you try to basically compete with your own potential, try to Excel to meet your potential. That is what you're trying to do. So you're trying to excel at work together Together promotion, but you're not trying to put people down you're not trying to basically hurt others, or trip them so that they fall and then you can make it before that, you know, you are competing with your potentials in parallel lines, you're doing your best you are you are armor you're wishing the

00:13:52 --> 00:13:57

best for our buck, but you're wasting gold so to basically

00:13:58 --> 00:14:09

or at one point Omar gave up you know, but but but he was wishing to compete and basically it's beatable back with a certain verses

00:14:11 --> 00:14:31

but but without with a you know, with complete goodwill in his heart for Abu Bakr over the lavonne and that's the point here. So you're competing with your potential in parallel lines, you're not fighting over the shares or an exam, because you know, that all of this is predetermine.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:39

So they are called on when to stop and refrain from fighting over the shares that belong to others.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:59

The other homeless I'm in them to get rid of and you know, abstaining from the fighting over the shoulders of elders and the rudeness of audaciousness or and to get rid of the rudeness of audaciousness audaciousness here is to rush Allah subhanaw taala when you make the eye

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

For instance, and, or to be demanding, you know, when you when you make,

00:15:06 --> 00:15:14

and then, you know, their response is delayed, some people can become demanding. And some people can become

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

even just like harsh with a loss or loss heard someone who,

00:15:23 --> 00:15:31

who used to work, not a very good job in Egypt, like, it's, it's a job that will require a lot of

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34


00:15:37 --> 00:15:37


00:15:39 --> 00:15:50

just like, but but he found that despite the fact that, you know, his job was not a particularly the best job particularly during that time.

00:15:52 --> 00:16:00

He was saying, you know, his his son failed in high school and he I heard him say

00:16:01 --> 00:16:12

he and I have been praying for this many years. And you made my son fail in high school, while law he I'm not praying from here on. So

00:16:14 --> 00:16:36

you know, this is this is not just this is not the audaciousness is talking about, you know, what I would have never imagined this level of audaciousness he's talking about the audacious pneus of someone who's struggling, who's rushing younger, who say, you know, he's getting impatient, you know, you know, I made I'm not you know, getting a response or

00:16:37 --> 00:17:30

getting audaciousness also, in, in other regards. In general, when when you make haste, you are being audacious with the last one. Oh, Todd, haste is basically to circumvent the rules and be advocates. There are lots of Hello Tyler instructed us in certain groups and advocates, it's not just about rules, there are also advocates that we have to live by, that are also Islamic ethics that we have to live by, in addition to the rules, and the people who want the bare bones, they will likely violate those, you know, bounds of Allah will violate the bounds of Allah subhanaw taala, the buffer zone, the ethics, the advocates, we will have to preserve them, in order for us to not

00:17:31 --> 00:18:21

trespass the bounds of Allah subhanaw taala or violate mahad and Allah subhanaw taala, a large Christian, of those of ethics and advocates, if you if your haste makes you violate those rules of ethics that is hurting them, or the rudeness of audaciousness. Then in a moment, how do we set that order to study about happiness. So the first one is despair, you will have to really know that what has been decreed will come to pass. So you're not being hasty and you're not being audacious, with Allah subhanaw taala adonijah saniya after this despair, you won't have security. You don't have to go through this fear before you go before you reach the level of security. You would have to go

00:18:21 --> 00:18:24

through the despair before you reach the level of security

00:18:26 --> 00:18:28

at darada to 30 a barrel.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:36

The second level is the level of security. We're going to have demon felted muck dude one to coddle muster.

00:18:37 --> 00:19:13

up I'm Rob demon Felton, malcador, that is for the heart, for the servant sees fearing from missing what is what has been decreed or what is the creed, fountain moku when or when to pass in the store, or the change of that which has been inscribed, that change of that which has been inscribed or you know, the decrease of that which has been inscribed. So after you despair after you despair of the you know

00:19:15 --> 00:19:21

mahkamah Tara can fight and after the crease, then your surrender to the decree is

00:19:22 --> 00:19:59

a way to decrease that before you how do you surrender to the future decrees. If you don't know the future decrease? You don't surrender to future decrees? Because you don't know them yet. People who's who surrender to future decrees are saying that we have access. No, you don't have access, we have access to the preserve a tablet, we know you don't know. So when you find after the crease as a homeowner, the alumni who said when Omar said that known as the other cadets were fighting Africa by Qatar. He's talking about future decrees. He's not talking about decrees left

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

Before the US already, you, you fight off the decrees that have befallen you, not in the sense of returning them, you can't return them in Medicaid mitigating the effects, but their effects their after effects or decrease that are in the future also, right? So when a disease befalls you, and you try to fight it off, what are you fighting now? Are you fighting? What happened?

00:20:26 --> 00:21:00

You're fighting the after effects? what may happen, you're trying to mitigate the harms of this as much as you can? That is future decrease or decrease future decrease? Do you know them? Do you know what will be the course of this disease in your body? Someone was diagnosed with cancer, does this person now have access to the preserve a tablet to know that they will only survive three years, five years, seven years, two years does any the best of doctors you know, oncologist

00:21:02 --> 00:21:31

have the ability to forecast you know, how long this person would live? Exactly, absolutely not. Right? Absolutely, you know, we have come to learn this. But yeah, so, the doctors may say, it is very unlikely for this person to live beyond six months. And most of the time may they may they will be right, you know, but but not all the time. And they can tell exactly how long the person will live, they can basically

00:21:32 --> 00:21:40

predict and their prediction may be, you know, close to accurate, but at the end of the day, it is not

00:21:42 --> 00:21:54

they will not be able to tell what what happened in the future. So when you're fighting off the decrees the future decrees, that is not quite enough to decrease that the sheriff is talking about. And then

00:21:56 --> 00:22:07

keep in mind that you know that you will not be able to resist future decrease that have been actually inscribed in the preservative tablet, which gives you this Sakina this this piece.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:33

you're you're you're you're doing your best now because you don't know them. But you're saying to yourself, I am doing my best, but at the end of the day what is actually written will come to pass I think if we have a good understanding of a product, we will never be faithless and we will have peace without having indifference. We will have these we will have stability.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:43

It will even give you courage and it will it should also give you energy it should also give you energy energy and courage without

00:22:44 --> 00:22:46

you know, kind of anxiety

00:22:48 --> 00:23:02

Okay, so he said that the second level is the level of security now that you have this fear of fighting off the decrees then you don't have security peace of mind tranquility file form

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

files Federal Bureau hereto

00:23:07 --> 00:23:09

or for the Federal Bureau Florida

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

failed the federal would be better you should probably change the scale here file the Federal Bureau Florida gaining the light of contentment

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

with a letter be ideally a clean

00:23:28 --> 00:23:33

and if not, if he does not get the light of contentment

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

you know

00:23:38 --> 00:23:40

means relief

00:23:41 --> 00:23:52

but he will come back and talk about not for Sabra. So I saved the you know the word relief for load for supper because Rama means a little bit more than a relief.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:57

You know around his is you know comfort

00:23:59 --> 00:24:07

with some pleasure, you know or is comfort with some pleasure. So that's why I use the light here with

00:24:08 --> 00:24:11

the light may be a little bit more.

00:24:12 --> 00:24:24

But when we're talking about comfort with pleasure, it's like pleasant comfort, the pleasant comfort of contentment, pleasant comfort of contentment, maybe around 100

00:24:25 --> 00:24:35

so that is the highest level. That is the highest level here that you could say and that is basically

00:24:38 --> 00:24:40

when you are completely

00:24:44 --> 00:24:57

at ease with the decrease of a loss pinata and not only at ease you're also pleased the decrease of a lot of the remember when we talked about the phenomenon when his son died, and he was here smiling and laughing.

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

We said that this is not

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

The best example because the prophets example is the best example he was weeping when his son died. Because he was able to basically combine between the stations of mercy and read the acceptance or you know, of the decrees of Allah Subhana, WA tada and pleasure with a decrease of a loss of contentment with a decrease of Allah subhanaw taala. But our beloved Norma sort of, you know, was not able to master that reconciliation of the two stations, as beautifully as the prophet SAW Selim did. So he decided, you know, to hold on to the station of Raider,

00:25:40 --> 00:25:42

despite the fact that he did certainly have

00:25:44 --> 00:25:53

compassion towards his son, and he loved his son and so on. But, as he was not able to reconcile them, at that moment, he had gone to the station.

00:25:54 --> 00:26:02

And the station of river has a beautiful station, but it is not easy. It is not easy for someone to do like have the live normal.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:12

And whatever the prophet SAW about Southern dead is certainly the hardest, it is the simplest and hardest at the same time.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:18

But this is really not easy, particularly the time of the first shot.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:44

But if he said, if not, if one would not be able to get to that pleasant comfort of contentment, then at least were left behind. Earlier in the certainty of vision, if the uncertainty of vision it means that, you know, you're keen to have certainty, like the certainty of an eyewitness, like the certainty of an eyewitness who actually saw with his own eyes.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:56

So that certainty that eyewitness has in that which he cited with his own eyes, that is what the believer would have. cutter

00:26:57 --> 00:27:34

is the essence of a man vilazodone if someone has to live now best said, that is the thread that connects the presence of email, and environment email, it is basically the thread that connects the purpose of email is if someone is unable to get this down, right, and to have acceptance of other and to have surrender to other, like I said, without indifference, that then this person would have issues with his email. Do you? Do you?

00:27:35 --> 00:28:15

You come across people who have doubts or skeptics or people who have difficulties with their email? I think the problem of evil is one of the biggest issues that cause them trouble or doubts. So it is clear, like Abdullah best said, if you don't get this down right, you will have difficulty with your Eman. So that you have here is saying that the people who will surrender to power are the people who will have the greatest level of certainty. That is the certainty of an eyewitness. He said that least if you don't gain this

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

you know,

00:28:20 --> 00:28:22

attain this level.

00:28:23 --> 00:28:37

Then the least that you could attain is he said a level below the sub at least the relief of patience. At least you will enjoy the relief of patients you will be able to outpatient

00:28:38 --> 00:29:10

whatever befalls you calamities hardships, you know the stress that befalls you, you will be able to survive. We're not talking about someone who's content and laughing and smiling lack of the love normal. We're talking about someone who will survive, he will outpatient that turmoil, you know that he goes through and he will be able to get some relief from that patients some relief from that patients he will not basically

00:29:11 --> 00:29:12


00:29:15 --> 00:29:16

And you know, just

00:29:18 --> 00:29:21

completely crumble

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

vanishes to talk about the third level and that is a status and I'm trying to get around a little bit fast

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

to get

00:29:34 --> 00:29:39

try Trump's with a pleasant comfort if contentment is a good translation for fans for

00:29:42 --> 00:29:59

the because I have a lot in the second session to cover and you know, we will come back and talk about this very concept again and again shall it doesn't and we'll talk about tasleem in the next station to station number 31st

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

When we come back from, you know, our two weeks off, the next station will be the station of this theme the station of surrender. And we will,

00:30:10 --> 00:30:16

you know, repeat some of this when we talk about the station of the sleeve, or sir and

00:30:17 --> 00:30:26

then he said a better to satisfy my honor to as Elliot would have to do to follow us on and mechanism with our Kelly Mayor with Arreola data.

00:30:28 --> 00:30:43

So data 30, so my era to Elliott and how to follow some in the third level is beholding the SLA eternity without beginning. It's pre eternity, sometimes translated as pre eternity I have not seen a good word for as

00:30:44 --> 00:31:10

bad as eternity when people think of eternity, people think of a bad idea, basically eternity without end, right. But as it is eternity without beginning a lobbying, well, laser koplow say the first without anything being before him. And the first without a beginning, which is the hardest thing for human intellect to imagine, because we are

00:31:11 --> 00:31:25

basically temporal creations. The idea of eternity itself is beyond our imagination, because it's beyond our reality. So this has led this eternity without beginning it has an early

00:31:28 --> 00:31:48

or a you know, a lesser a lower layer as they are there. They're the same, but they have different audio means primacy, you know, but as of a year means eternity without beginning in when it comes to Allah Spano Tata what he is like it as an idea because he is that I would build up to the so he is the first without a beginning.

00:31:49 --> 00:32:09

And some of them some of the manuscripts of this book Minnesota sorry, in Hawaii, and it's a really ad hoc, you know, basic versus a little hack, there is not much difference, primacy or eternity without beginning. So, when you go back and the you,

00:32:11 --> 00:32:22

He wants you to go back, this is the third level of Shahada, we always have a third level He wants you to basically he wants your ego to pass away and he wants you to go back and

00:32:23 --> 00:32:48

back and back and back. And at one point, you know, at one point we did not exist at one point he humanity did not exist at one point the heavens and the earth did not exist at one point the archer the throne did not exist. And at one point allow is there and there was no one else and he wants you to basically capture that moment and hold on to it. Behold that and and basically keep it along with you

00:32:49 --> 00:32:56

in your reflection, and if you do then you will see no one perceive no one but Allah subhanaw taala

00:32:57 --> 00:33:49

and that you will be able to get rid of the trials manage the trials in the way to your goals, pursuit is from cost. The cost is like Maqsood, it is the objective that which is intended you know the your goals, those are crucial man is the plural of Mecca, which is trial. So Meccano pursued the trials of the of the goals, meaning the trials in the way to your goals, and those trials in the way to your goals, if you truly behold the primacy and the eternity, Buddha, beginning of Allah subhanaw taala as a layer of Allah subhanaw taala everything will be easier for you, because Allah will be your ultimate objective, and those things will vanish, those very trials will vanish from your

00:33:49 --> 00:34:00

perception, you know, that they exist and you know, that we are real creations of the real creator, but that, you know, still that

00:34:03 --> 00:34:57

vision that you know, the going back in time all the way to the to, to not the time, but before time, before time itself when there was only Allah subhanaw taala withheld those trials vanished from your perception, because now you will be hold the law and anything in your in your way to Allah subhanaw taala will just disappear because at one point it did not exist. its existence is contingent upon the creation of Allah subhanaw taala so it will be like nothing in your way to him. And then he says what I can leave it he may add the unease of defensiveness that can leave is basically the character of tech leave it as the burden that leaves a shadow it is the issue the

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

different burdens different requires

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

elements of the Sharia these are the Khalifa suraiya. So take a leaf would be a requirements burdens translated the year as an ease of defensiveness.

00:35:12 --> 00:35:17

hehmeyer is the plural of a man's protection

00:35:18 --> 00:35:20

he may act would be basically

00:35:21 --> 00:36:08

it means at the end of the day, defensiveness, being defensive, being all the time afraid of the next attack, afraid of the next assault, afraid of the next calamity. So, you're always fighting of things, you're always you feel like you have to watch out for yourself. And sometimes people drown in these mega conspiracy theories and they think that every and sometimes people start to become paranoid, whether they become paranoid at a clinical level or a subclinical level, there are so many people in our community who are paranoid at a subclinical level, you know, that that whole being consumed and conspiracy theories all the time and missing out on the, you know, missing the obvious.

00:36:09 --> 00:36:58

The obvious things are obvious, you know, like trying to figure out all of the conspiracies that made our home, where it is neuroma is where it is because of certain obvious things that are on the map. And once we, once we address the obvious, then you could basically entertained all of the conspiracy, conspiracies in your mind. But let's first address the audience. Let's first work on the obvious, you know, how are you able to wake up early every day and go, you know, and do your Salah on time and do your Ascot and then go to work and perform well at work without, you know, making shortcuts without cheating, without, you know, any misconduct or sub ethical even conduct at work,

00:36:58 --> 00:37:07

and then you're coming back, and then you're taking care of your kids. And if you're not able to do this and to live up

00:37:08 --> 00:37:20

to, to what is expected of you, and to live up to your full potential, you know, in a care of yourself with doing what is right, being ethical,

00:37:21 --> 00:37:24

being good to your family, being good to your kids,

00:37:25 --> 00:37:34

then go to your community working for the cause of justice for your community, and for all communities and so on and so forth, then here is

00:37:35 --> 00:38:20

here is the work that you need to be doing, you know, don't worry about the mega conspiracy theories for now or the cosmic conspiracy theories, because you are fading out your individual individual level. So take care of that, and, and have trust in Allah subhanaw taala How would watch out for though mela will take care of this over? What you have to do is basically to do your part from your corner, from your end, do your part Don't be overwhelmed by the conspiracies? Because from your end, particularly and this happens to other people from your end, what is it that you can do you yourself? What you know, so even if there is like a huge conspiracy theory, even if bitcoins is a

00:38:20 --> 00:38:21

huge conspiracy,

00:38:24 --> 00:38:29

but But what is it that you can do? Like you might send me or you know,

00:38:31 --> 00:39:08

Heidi or what can you do? If it is actually in fact a conspiracy or whatever you know, is a conspiracy? What is it that you can do yourself and if you can't fight it off, trust Allah Allah put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala and then in this case, you will get rid of take it from him I have the unease of defensiveness and you will only focus on what you can do. And the means that you can take and precautions and revisions and so on.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:27

Take a you know, take a different format is extremely important for your inner peace that is not for your inner Colma that is not for your inner intoxication we are alert we are aware of our surroundings, but we address

00:39:29 --> 00:40:00

that with that which we can handle which we can manage. And we do not get overwhelmed by that which is beyond our control. And we address also the obvious before we address the the subtle. Why do you have to address the subtle before we address the obvious first address that which is which is obvious. And for anyone who does not know why our home is where it is now. You actually need

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

To go and live for four years

00:40:03 --> 00:40:11

in a Muslim country, you will be able to figure out what is wrong. And you're able to figure out that this is really not Islam at all.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:22

Islam is not really functional at all. Not at all, I'm sorry, I should not say this, there will be always goodness in this honor and a but

00:40:24 --> 00:40:28

particularly in the public space, particularly in in

00:40:29 --> 00:41:21

ethics, you know, work ethics, also social interactions, to a great extent, also in social social interactions, you will find that Islam is being neglected to a great extent, and, and that is, you know, and, and, and also not just Islam, but with common sense is being neglected, you know, you know, propriety is being neglected in every year regard. But if you go there and and just study for four years, you have not gone there, you have to work you have to basically be part of the society, not just like the student who, you know, you meet people in the street, the likes like you because you came here from America to study Islam, we treat you well. They give you like a banana on your

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

way to

00:41:23 --> 00:41:25

your class, and stuff like

00:41:30 --> 00:41:44

that, then addressing the audience is important and addressing what you can handle from your end is important, that will cure you from a lot of anxiety about a lot of conspiracy theories,

00:41:45 --> 00:42:09

which does not mean that conspiracies are not true. We know that, you know, this, the history of this world was was was about conspiracy conspiracies, but that is not to deny the existence of conspiracies, but we're talking about what is it that I can do, you know, regardless then the last point of the chief brought up here is a $30, but that he was

00:42:11 --> 00:42:12

counting on.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:18

modality was the elevating means

00:42:19 --> 00:43:13

who was that would be the means $30 was basically counting down the means Madonna did was massage is the stairway. Nevada means the stairways, stairways if it was and means here, the elevating means the means that would elevate you upwards. So he's saying that you are not counting on the means you're counting on Allah subhanaw taala, because going back before time, nothing existed, those means that not existed. Their reality is contingent upon his creation of them, therefore, count on him, he is the true one, in the true essence of the word, truth, he is unhappy. And all of these things around you are contingent creations. And all of these contingencies should show that you

00:43:13 --> 00:43:31

should not pay attention to them, they shouldn't they should not obstruct your vision, they should not distract your vision, from focusing on Allah, counting on Allah relying on Allah, all of the means all of the work that you do all of the hustle, everything, if you count on them to be elevated,

00:43:33 --> 00:43:49

then you're counting on your work. Once you're counting on your work, you will be disappointed but count on the grace of Allah subhanaw taala count on his graciousness count on his mercy. And that

00:43:50 --> 00:43:56

while while doing your best and while you know increasing your net earnings earning more and more

00:43:57 --> 00:44:10

and showing more and more obedience to Him, but count on him because you're has an ad once you start to look at them and sort of admire them and count on them. They may destroy you.

00:44:12 --> 00:44:18

That admiration and that reliance on your hacer net could very easily destroy you complete

00:44:20 --> 00:44:22

calling other stuff when it comes to critical events.
