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

spinoff from the last

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

video on how

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

to proceed.

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

Today we would have

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

Babel have another chapter on Athena.

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

And in the second session we will talk about this calf currency and there's a cat of debts

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

and the rulings that pertain to the creditors and the debtors.

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

So first global arena, the chapter on Vienna,

00:00:42--> 00:01:03

and Vienna as richness you know, if you just translated word for word word Vienna is richness. Rania is rich right? It has to do with plentifulness it has to do with affluence, that is the meeting that comes to mind first, when you say dinner, right, but there are certain subtleties here.

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

That that we would have to discuss.

00:01:07--> 00:01:13

Certainly the chef would not be meaning, again as in

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

financial affluence, because that would not be a spiritual station.

00:01:21--> 00:01:32

Although it is not condensable but it is not commendable. As a spiritual station. It is basically neutral. Like Yeah, I have no more as I said,

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

no camera no low on time was was

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

asking him with me, Rahim Allah, He said to him,

00:01:41--> 00:02:01

which one is better? And we're going to use Shakira, Shakira sabak Oconee soccer, which means the one who's rich and grateful for Canada slobber are the one who's poor and patient, which one is better? So if I may give him like a very smart answer. He said to him at home and

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

he said, the more pious out of them. So he meant to say that we're going to in fact are inconsequential,

00:02:09--> 00:02:22

when in fact, an income inconsequential, but yeah, Habermas even put it in sort of more artistic form, he said, Vienna and Fokker or

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

he put it in a formula, he said,

00:02:28--> 00:02:59

land use and and when, when you factor our dinner film is any garden, when am I Oh da sucrose sub. So, in this case, in the Hereafter, in the escape, then einfacher will not be placed in the scale, but will be placed his patience and gratitude will be placed his patience and gratitude and you do need patience and gratitude for both. You need to be patient in Ghana, just as you need to be shackled

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

or grateful in sub In fact, right because even the appear it should still be grateful to Allah and the name should be still patient. Because Vienna is a trial

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

is a test and you should show patience with the trial.

00:03:20--> 00:03:43

Anyway, so that says, although Vienna is not commendable, is not memorable, but it is also not commendable in and of itself in terms of financial affluence. So the CF is not talking about financial instruments here. So what is he talking about? Like himself, he's talking about the inner richness, he's talking about

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

more, and it's definite, but just not realistic. And it's there is freedom from want.

00:03:52--> 00:04:10

Vienna in this sense would be freedom from one, but freedom from one freedom from need freedom from one can also be called panella. Right? contentment, like he contends with what you have,

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

but this is not what this is all about.

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

This is about an actual feeling of fulfillment,

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

an actual feeling of inner richness.

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

How do you feel that?

00:04:27--> 00:04:45

If it is if part of it is freedom from one part of it is freedom from the need to possess any worldly material? possessions? How do you feel how can you be rich or you feel rich you feel full fulfilled?

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

la sala Hobi calf Inaba is the answer. Isn't the law sufficient for his servant? Allah subhanaw taala said this in sort of Zuma, Zuma. Allah is Allah who began

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

in Abu Dhabi,

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

isn't the law sufficient? For his servant is the answer, you actually feel fulfilled, you feel rich, not just content with what you have. You feel that you have everything.

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

You feel that you have everything.

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

Because you have a lot in your life, and then you feel that you have everything.

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

Not just that you're content with what you have in the sense of

00:05:30--> 00:06:03

content with your lack of possessions, you feel that you do possess everything that you have everything, because when other accola Let me afford to say, whoever reaches Allah subhanaw taala or finds a line his life, he did not miss out on anything. Nothing, nothing, you know, that he missed out on. So he starts by saying Bob with another chapter on interactionist and he says Palo Alto del autoboca Ilan Avenue,

00:06:04--> 00:06:12

hello mighty said. And He found you poor, poor and made you rich. And He found you poor and made you rich.

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

Sort of

00:06:16--> 00:06:30

last panel, tada is addressing His Messenger sallallahu sallam, also the guy in Florida And He found you poor and he made you rich. And the scholars talked about whether this richness means financial

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

well being,

00:06:34--> 00:06:55

affluence or it means spiritual richness, or it means both. And it likely means both. Because Allah subhanaw taala the prophets of Salaam was an orphan, had lack of means, and although the prophet SAW Selim did not leave much behind, and he left a life of

00:06:56--> 00:07:01

abstinence, asceticism abstemious sness to a great extent

00:07:03--> 00:07:08

with moderation, with my or in moderation.

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

Yet the profits are silent did not have any any need

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

for or any need of anyone but his Lord, and that is gonna.

00:07:20--> 00:07:40

And he used to say, after the internet, they know of any nominal Fuck, it was reported by Muslim that part of the law of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is up at the ANA Dane, wherever Nina, I mean, *, you know, relieve us from the burden of debt and make us rich,

00:07:42--> 00:08:43

or end our poverty make us rich. And in this sense, rich here means not in need of anyone other than you. But also means financial well being now in the sense of what we perceive as financial affluence in the sense of having the basic needs and not needing to ask anyone, for any of them, you know, fulfilling our basic needs, and not making us in need of anyone other than you. Hola. So after the ANA de la Vina minute so, what was it like? I'm Tara and he found the poor and media rich does mean both the spiritual rich richness and fulfillment as well as the financial well being in the sense of one having their financial, their basic needs and not needing

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

you know, the help or any favor from anyone.

00:08:54--> 00:09:13

So, in this in you know, so, I wanted to say that I wanted to translate into self sufficiency and maybe the document that I sent you that actually was titled self sufficiency, but then I changed my mind, although, it has to do with self sufficiency and this will come now,

00:09:15--> 00:09:40

about the proper translation for this particular macom for this particular station would be richness, and it would be the inner richness and originals, because it is not self sufficiency in the absolute sense of what the West this word means as we we will discuss now. And it is not simply contentment, self sufficiency will be

00:09:42--> 00:09:50

will not will not be even appropriate for us as human beings process creation.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54


00:09:55--> 00:09:59

then on the other side, it is not just contentment because as I told you

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

This is not someone who is enduring through lack of means and lack of positions. This is someone who is truly feeling fulfilled. Completely feeling that he has or she has everything because they have a line their lives.

00:10:17--> 00:10:22

Then the chef says here Alexandra smolen Milka tam wahala filati Raja

00:10:23--> 00:10:51

allatheena is more than milk it's not a small molecule the Lordship Can you know Kingdom you know, monarchy The milk is the ownership within a small little milk it thermo alafasy Davina richness refers to complete ownership and it is of three levels. There is refers to complete ownership and it is of three levels. So what does he mean by complete ownership here?

00:10:53--> 00:10:59

If he's talking about the Hina, that this is a poem that this is a station that this is a Manzil

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

that He's inviting us to.

00:11:04--> 00:11:14

He's telling us that we don't belong to that station very at the very outset. He's saying, again, a richness refers to complete ownership.

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

Can you ever Can you ever call our ownership complete ownership?

00:11:23--> 00:11:33

That doesn't seem like you can call our ownership of anything complete ownership, because our ownership is contingent, and it is temporal,

00:11:34--> 00:11:52

even if we possess everything we want, in this life, and we will never possess everything we want, there will always be more that we, you know, as, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when I, when I am the owner of an atom, electron, and nothing will make

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

an atom's ice content.

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

Iam that means fill the eyes of now them except Thus, when he gets very dust fills

00:12:03--> 00:12:11

his or her eyes, but nothing will make them content, nothing will be sufficient for them except us, though there always be more than the

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

seek, and look for.

00:12:15--> 00:12:16


00:12:18--> 00:12:21

but even if we have everything we possess,

00:12:23--> 00:12:38

our ownership is incomplete. It is contingent is impro, it is transient. It's contingent upon, you know, being granted whatever we have by Allah subhanaw taala and it is contingent upon Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:40--> 00:12:48

Protecting our positions because we have no power to protect our physicians to begin with. So the CFS saying

00:12:49--> 00:13:07

that the gamma in the sense of self sufficiency and that's why one word can have many inferences, and then some of the inferences would be valid and some of them will be invalid and you need to just dissect the different inferences and implications of the same word and figure out

00:13:08--> 00:13:15

what is what is intended here, what is intended here. So Vienna, as

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

in self sufficiency, the CFO saying that we don't belong there to begin with, again a small little market. vana, richness refers to complete ownership or ownership is contingent our ownership is temporal or transient and complete ownership belongs to Allah subhanaw taala absolute ownership belongs to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala certain sort of Father yohannes 1214 para la la one of anyone Hamid Oh people you are the ones in need of Allah. And Allah is the one he is the which means the only

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

one who is self sufficient.

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

And Hamid praise worthy deserving of praise. So, in this sense, when as in self sufficiency does not belong to us. But what belongs to us is sufficiency by and through Allah sufficiency by Allah to fee and

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

to feel that you have enough

00:14:18--> 00:14:44

because you have a low so it is not self sufficiency. It is sufficiency by Allah subhanaw taala your your, your servitude, your Buddha to Allah subhanaw taala fills you up makes you feel like you have everything and you have not missed out on anything, man other than Kala let me offer to say, you know, whoever finds Allah and His life, nothing.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

He has not missed out on anything. So, in so this is this was an important beginning. The chef is trying to tell us that the Ghana that is meant here is the Vienna in the sense of

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

The feeling of fulfillment By Allah, a feeling that Allah is sufficient for you, not in the self sense of self sufficiency and not merely contentment, because keep this in mind, not merely contentment, not merely acceptance of your condition, not merely freedom from one.

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

Because there also is freedom from one step and that, you know, stagnate honesty means I did not have any need for the car anymore. You know, I figured it out, you know, I figured out how to walk to work or I move next to my job, I stagnate on a car, I don't have a need for the car anymore. And that is, you know, that is greater, you know, when we talk about freedom from one, you know, Roosevelt's speech about the Four Freedoms freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from one for freedom, from fear.

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

When they talk about freedom from one, two, they talk about what

00:16:05--> 00:16:38

they talk about securing the ones you know, and the people love the world. Talk about freedom from one the talk about securing the ones, when the people of spiritual refinement, talk about freedom from one to the talk about what not wanting them in the first place, not wanting anything, it's like those are like stoics, in some sense. So not wanting, that is the ultimate freedom from one. Because as long as you want, you're dependent on this

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

thing. This, wherever a thing could be material or immaterial.

00:16:45--> 00:16:56

It may be material, immaterial, you're depending on this relationship, you're depending on this recognition, here, depending on the on the love of this, or that person,

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

the dependence, that you're not free from one

00:17:02--> 00:17:11

and even if you have it now, but you will always be concerned about keeping it right or not. But you are the true winner worst

00:17:13--> 00:17:20

is to not need it, to not be internally dependent on anything to be detached from all ones.

00:17:21--> 00:17:38

And not be internally dependent on anything for your inner comfort, for your peace, for your spiritual equilibrium. For your emotional equilibrium, you are in a in a place of complete equilibrium.

00:17:40--> 00:17:53

Without anything, without any dependence on anything. Because even if you look at the Maslow's hierarchy, it's called the hierarchy of what Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

00:17:54--> 00:18:49

As long as you below as long as you're there, you know, this is your hierarchy of need, you are an EDI person, you are here have a clear map of me. And that sense. And the hierarchy of need. As we said before, we'll start with the basic things, you know, food and air and stuff like physical necessities, and then safety, and then sense of belonging and love, and then esteem, you know, recognition, and then self actualization. But all of this is what needs and you're only a wrench, when you go beyond the whole hierarchy, the whole pyramid, to what to self transcendence. When you that is basically joining the eternal, that's finding the eternal, the first and the last, Allah

00:18:49--> 00:18:53

subhanaw taala. God, the Creator of the universe. So

00:18:54--> 00:19:10

you will always be needy, as long as you're dependent on any of it does not mean that that as a human being you will not have a need, you will have a physical need, you will have you will have a physical need for food.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

But it means that your inner

00:19:14--> 00:19:23

equilibrium is not dependent on anything in the exterior world. You're you're

00:19:24--> 00:19:31

you feel fulfilled by and through your relationship with la soprano Todd.

00:19:34--> 00:19:49

Now we may say but was roozbeh right? or wrong when or or or anyone who considers freedom from want to be through securing those ones? Is there a conflict here?

00:19:51--> 00:19:58

Like if you if you plan if you if you are in a position where you're in charge of public policy or

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

is there

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

conflict between economic development and spiritual refinements here. Because if you say to an economist of Vienna,

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

or freedom from one is by not wanting

00:20:11--> 00:20:20

for an economist, that sounds like ridiculous, right? Because Because it's about securing the ones making sure that

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

people have their needs.

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

And you don't want an economist to think otherwise.

00:20:30--> 00:20:59

When he's thinking economy, economics, you don't you want them to secure the needs of the people. So that's the difference between public policy and spiritual refinements and there is no conflict. Because on an individual level for spiritual refinement, you do want the people to be independent of those ones or those needs, not dependent on them for their inner comfort or their equilibrium. And that is when there is this fine line between, you know, state and

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

in public policy and spiritual development. See you in North America Hola.

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

After The Ballad of Chuck hum.

00:21:15--> 00:21:27

When he entered the Damascus after the Battle of Chicago, and he is the he's the one who recruited them. And he's the one who fought along with the Soufan and monster of Palawan. And that's, you know,

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

even though NASA alone, put them in jail, but they he found against the authorities.

00:21:38--> 00:21:49

And he's the one who are motivated in some kind of monster. Cologne, Rahim Allah to come out of Egypt and fight the theaters

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

basically leave

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

the mask is abandoned. And then when he went back to the masks and monster,

00:21:59--> 00:22:32

and he feared that Sultana Nasir may fear from him, you know, because because of his celebrity popularity because of people's love for him and so on. He may fear that he may compete with him for power. So even if a man says and what you remember, another Judo mela La Jolla, Dola, Anna Rajaram, in La Jolla, and a clergyman, not a statesman, I'm a clergyman. Now, the statement is that separation of church and state

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

to some extent, yes, is it separation of religion state? No.

00:22:40--> 00:22:46

And there is a there is a fine line here that you have to understand in order for you to have proper

00:22:48--> 00:23:10

sort of perspective. And this regard as separation of church and state to some extent, but it is not separation of religion, states religion, doesn't form our choices, doesn't form our value system. And based on that, it doesn't form our choices, even in public policy.

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

So, there is no conflict here.

00:23:17--> 00:23:43

Between spiritual development or spiritual refinement and economic development, these are two different things. And people who are in charge of economic development, development may be spiritually fine. But when they they are planning, again, it then means prosperity means to secure people's needs. When when they when they are in that sphere. Because the word again it could mean so many different things.

00:23:45--> 00:24:17

Because when I lost Eduardo Baca Island, foreigner, and Allah found you poor and he made you rich, it did mean also financial will be had that mean secure and gear needs high security or needs so that you become independent of others independent of other creations. You're not reliant on other creations for your needs, because I secured your needs, because I gave you enough in terms of your basic needs.

00:24:22--> 00:24:47

So, then that she acts as a manager. Now, he will talk about the three different levels of Ghana, he says Dr. Ola, venal, Bahasa Lama to whom in a suburban masala to hulan hokhmah colossal woman of Soma. The first level is the richness of the heart and it is about clearance of reliance on the causes. To be clear of the causes meaning to be clear over aligned on the causes.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

Said I'm not going to set the clearance of reliance on the causes. As we said before, we must engage the causes. We must always engage the causes according to the analysis,

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

To the loss of Karnataka created the now the natural processes, according to the universal order that align inculcated in those clauses, if I punch this board, it will make a sound that is basically an efficient cause, resulting in the expected outcome.

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

If a landmark mean for it to make a sound, if a lot did not mean for it to move,

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

it would have not moved in, it will have not made a sound but you're engaging the causes. Because, most most of the time, how many times that the fire not burn someone, you know, very rarely, how many times the knife did not cut someone, you know, exerting sufficient force and so on. Very rarely. So you're you're engaging the causes, but your heart is completely reliant on the closer Your heart is complete your alignment, the closer as we said before, so many times, but it is important to that your heart is not reliant on the cause. It is important that when you're when you're at work, you're not reliant on this job, for your rest. You're not reliant, you're not afraid

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

that your supervisor, you know, you're not afraid of doing something right.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

doing something right.

00:26:25--> 00:26:36

Lest your supervisor fires you or this or that. You're not afraid of conducting yourself honestly, if your supervisor would require any

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

sort of sub optimal, unethical

00:26:43--> 00:26:53

practice, you know, you would not be afraid of saying the truth You certainly will prudently have you do everything prudently and wisely.

00:26:56--> 00:27:21

But in other words, your you don't really feel that it is this job that is providing for you, it is a lot of who is providing for you. And that is when you become clear of the causes. The meaning here the efficient causes, the efficient causes, the direct cause, the immediate cause, because keep in mind that Allah is the first and the final cause.

00:27:24--> 00:28:12

And then he said, What musala metoden hoekman being at peace with the decrees being at peace with the decrees and those decrees are your shadow decrees being at peace with your shadow, decrees is by what? conformity, being at peace with a shadow a decrease as what is by conformity and whether or not you can comprehend them, you can form you can ply, you submit, and then you try to comprehend. But if this, if we are quite sure that this is that this came from Allah subhanaw taala This is a point of consensus or this or that, then the only thing that is expected of us is what compliance conformity is most alhama to what will help them it is basically being a piece with a decrease. And

00:28:12--> 00:28:25

then you have the universe of decrees, universe of not the shadow decrees, but the decrees will be the commands and prohibitions. And then you have the universe of decrees and being a peace with the universe of decreases by what

00:28:26--> 00:29:00

acceptance with contentment, but doesn't mean also resistance. As long as they have not been fallen. You you resist them, as Amaro, the law animal said that we resist the kettlebell paddle. Resist the cover by a father when he was told, are you afraid of the plague? Are you staying out of the city? Because you're afraid of the plague? Are you? Are you afraid of a lost brother? He said, Do you think that you could run away from a loss color you say yes, you know, why would I enter into a city that has plague

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

I would resist the color by color.

00:29:06--> 00:29:13

But once it has been fallen, you then you accept it with contentment while trying to mitigate the sort of the

00:29:14--> 00:29:16

effects as much as possible.

00:29:18--> 00:29:53

Then the last one is we're consuming and consume and reading from antagonism will colossal woman or fusuma. And all of this is about the pub, the pub in order for the candidate to be agony or to feel Ghana and all of this is for you to feel cleaner to feel Ghana Salama, to whom in a suburb, you are not dependent on the causes immediate efficient causes. You're dependent on the causer The second is you're at peace with the decrees all the decrees commands and prohibitions, you can fly, you know, sickness, that's a loved one.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Getting the job that you wanted, losing it, you know, get it into the major t

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

Like, you know, getting kicked out of it, whatever it is that

00:30:06--> 00:30:16

whatever the crease that befall you, you are at peace with a decrease, working your best to do and you're working, doing your best and working

00:30:17--> 00:30:47

for your well being and your welfare, but being completely at peace with the decrees that had befallen you, and then returns from antagonism antagonism here fusuma here or antagonism here is that someone who feels agony by a loss of pinata? Who feels that Allah is really enough for me, at least Allah Be careful. Isn't the law sufficient for his servant? And then the answer to Hong Kong law? The answer to this would be answer.

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

But you could say yes as well.

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

I was expecting a yes.

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

But is correct, it should not be now.

00:31:03--> 00:31:17

But anyways, so ice alone will be half an hour that isn't the law sufficient for serving you say yes, Allah sufficient for me. And in this case, if you feel that it was sufficient for you, then when you be

00:31:18--> 00:31:39

too competitive, you will be competitive, but you will be too competitive in the sense of excessively competitive with others antagonistic. You know, I always say that a Muslim competes in parallel lines with others, not intersecting, you know, you know, it's not like I have to wish you

00:31:40--> 00:32:04

delay or impediment or anything to get ahead. No, I will just, I will just compete in parallel lines, I will try to actualize my potential and get the most out of myself and compete in parallel lines, not an intersecting lines, you know, so I wish you will. You know, Amara Ilana did not wish for a buck

00:32:06--> 00:32:13

to get behind so that he can get ahead, he just wanted to compete, he wanted to get ahead, he wanted to actualize his potential.

00:32:17--> 00:32:43

So, here he will not be antagonistic returns from antagonism and people will recognize that once the you know you once you have the this vinna inside you buy a Lost Planet Allah, people will recognize that you are not antagonistic, you're not competing for recognition, you're not competing for power, you're not competing for anything. You want to actualize your potential, but you you don't wish them any harm.

00:32:46--> 00:33:10

But is a Muslim, never antagonistic. Then the professor says I'm used to say well because my son and I oppose, I resist I struggle against others. For you by you. What is this struggle What is this summer, this is a mocha sama for Allah by Allah. So if your Maha sama is for Allah By Allah, this mocha sama is not only

00:33:11--> 00:33:14

permissible, but required.

00:33:15--> 00:33:28

It is required for you to struggle against others for the perfect cause of divine justice. For the excellent cause of divine justice. Isn't this required? Yes, it is required.

00:33:29--> 00:33:36

There is so much evil in the world. And if you don't antagonize the evil, for the cause of divine justice.

00:33:38--> 00:33:43

If you see someone has sort of poking a child's eyes out or like

00:33:44--> 00:33:55

see someone like beating like if you go out in the street now and you see someone beating, you know, like a man beating a woman and this reason

00:33:56--> 00:34:30

you will say I am not antagonistic. I don't antagonize people. I'm a pacifist. I would not you know, I'm minding my business. I am at peace with my creations. That is part of the creations or this aggressor is part of a loss creations I'm a piece with everybody well that then you're not at peace with the divine cause you could be at peace with the creations but you're not at peace with the creator in this case, because the creator requires of you in this case to enter v

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

Okay, so hello. So human are fusuma readings from antagonism is not in the absolute sense. It is regular returns from antagonism that is caused by greed, excessive competition, and so on.

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

But not antagonism for Allah by Allah. Then the shift said what dadada to Sonia Vina enough's.

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

The second level is the richness of the neffs

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

It says here in an AF but it's been nefs in a Fs. And it is about convention starts to talk about again And last, but which one is higher the deeds of the hearts are the deeds of the knifes these of the heart are higher than the deeds of the nerves. So, why did the CF here made the Vienna of enough's in the second level,

00:35:26--> 00:35:30

not the first level, and the first level was the winner of the heart and I have it in the footnote.

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


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

because the heart is the most rebellious of the Neff says subordinates,

00:35:42--> 00:35:55

the heart is the most rebellious of the subordinates of the nerves. And if she can have good control over the heart, she will have good control over everything else. So once you you know,

00:35:57--> 00:36:03

I'm sorry, if if the heart can have good control over the nerves, the heart of them is in full control.

00:36:05--> 00:36:15

So VML heart and it is it is not it is it is basically there is overlap. And it is sort of a mutual relationship.

00:36:16--> 00:36:20

But since then apps is the most rebellious.

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

Now, if you have control over your nerves control over your ego,

00:36:27--> 00:36:32

then the road is paved for your ascendance through the third level.

00:36:33--> 00:36:38

So let's talk about the second level to see if we can get to the third level.

00:36:39--> 00:36:43

You know, we just need to secure our place in the first level

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

most of the time,

00:36:46--> 00:37:09

but he says the second level is the richness of the nerve center it is about steca not how Allah Mahboob it's consistent pursuit of the final goal. The karma means straightness, here in this context that means consistent pursuit to be you know, straight on your pursuit of the final goal. The final goal and Mahboob from robba

00:37:10--> 00:37:14

final goal is always a lot you know if the final objective is always alone

00:37:16--> 00:37:28

so as the comet Allah robots consistent pursuit of the final goal was alarma. Terminal moshood it's it's clearance of abominations abominations here mean one Sakaba

00:37:29--> 00:37:43

pasa what is what the reason, you know, it's about something that is disliked something as resented must hold. Basically, it's an adjective in the passive voice from

00:37:44--> 00:37:47

Salt, which means resentment,

00:37:48--> 00:38:04

or disliking, and moshood is all abominations, everything that that deserves to be this light. And in this context, what is must hold must hold is Maslow's hierarchy of needs,

00:38:06--> 00:38:29

which means our lowly pursuits, anything short of self transcendence, anything short of you know the pursuit of the eternal that I would want after a while Barton, your pursuit of an hour while after a viral button is the only thing that should be you know,

00:38:31--> 00:38:42

an a goal for you, or an ultimate goal for you, any lowly pursuits, any pursuits short of this, other than this, are must hooked.

00:38:46--> 00:38:54

Okay. So like what have you you want to like to propose to someone, aren't you

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

seeking something short of the eternal short of the final goal, or you want to graduate

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

with a good GPA or you want to get a good job, good place, all of this is must hold.

00:39:16--> 00:39:28

Well, it would be much harder if it competes with in Morocco. If it competes with the final goal, it certainly would be Moscow, but would not be misquote if it does not compete with the final goal.

00:39:30--> 00:39:38

It was not those lower pursuits and they are lower. Keep in mind anything short of you know

00:39:40--> 00:39:51

your connection with the eternity with eternity with the eternal with you know as a lay in a body, the first without beginning the last without ending his

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

lower Hello our pursuit. But those lower pursuits are not consumable. They are

00:40:00--> 00:40:33

are often commendable if they are not competing with your final pursuit or ultimate goal. And then what about our ad hominem Maura Maura is clearance of ostentation. Because once you have been consistent in your pursuit of the final goal, and once you have read yourself, have the abominations have the low the pursuits, or the lower pursuits, not necessarily always Low, low D, but dependence on the lower pursuits or

00:40:36--> 00:40:44

basically allowing the lower pursuits to compete in your heart with the ultimate pursuit. Once you have done this, then

00:40:46--> 00:40:59

then the struggle now will be about making sure that all of this is really for Allah, not for anything else. And then that's why he said it's clearance of ostentation, clearance of ostentation.

00:41:00--> 00:41:17

And then he said what data to satisfy. And then I've been happy for a while, as well as the merata. The third level of sufficiency by the true one hack could mean what truth or the true one hack could be the truth or the true one. So Allah isn't happy.

00:41:18--> 00:41:23

You could translate this as Allah is the truth, analyze the true one.

00:41:24--> 00:41:47

And in this sense, the true one, because he is the only one who is Thai, you tired enough? See, self sufficient is not, you know, in need of anyone, his existence is not contingent. That is why he and we gave the examples before because he's talking here, you know, he usually mentioned that happen the last

00:41:48--> 00:42:05

level, which is the level of self regulation, self of level of finance, because he's trying to tell you, you're almost unreal, you're almost unreal, the light of the candle next to the light of the sun, vanishes, not existentially. But almost.

00:42:06--> 00:42:18

It's almost not there just yet. So, he says that it is not a status attainable Haku Allah sanity merata the third level of sufficiency by the true one and it is of three levels.

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

And martaba to Allah Shahada victory, he

00:42:23--> 00:43:02

and Martha two rulers who the victory at the first level is considering his remembrance of you, she holds victory he considering his remembrance of you, Assange was Sania dharmapala to what he had, the second is observing His firstness His antecedents. So every time your heart becomes reliant, dependent on something other than Allah, then remember that this thing at one point did not exist. Just to go back, it is basically the the parable of throwing the blanket, throw the blank, you know, throw the blanket on your surroundings,

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

everything that you observe around you, all of your lower pursuits, just throw the blanket and keep extending that blanket, globe, keep on going back

00:43:14--> 00:43:42

100 years, 1000 years, back 1 million years, keep them going back back back back to the point where God allowed me I can say, you know, allow was there and there was nothing else that is what it is antecedents, is firstness and then realize that all of those contingencies, all of those temporal existences came to existence from what,

00:43:45--> 00:43:59

from nothingness. It's called ex nihilo nothingness, you know, they came to existence from complete nothingness. And in this case, he will realize that

00:44:00--> 00:44:06

he should, your heart should really not be dependent on anything, that was at one point

00:44:07--> 00:44:14

higher than nothing. And then, he said was fairly self possible Julia.

00:44:15--> 00:44:21

So the second is observing his firstness antecedents and when you say to yourself Elisa law,

00:44:23--> 00:44:33

isn't the law sufficient for serving and then the third is that God, the third is the ultimate success of finding him. Find your Lord.

00:44:35--> 00:44:38

Basically feeling the presence of your Lord all the time.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

Feeling the company of your Lord all the time that you are in the company of your Lord in the presence of your Lord, the heart of the Moloch all the time and if you do have this feeling, then it will fill you up. It will be sufficient for you. It will spare you of all need for any

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

And short of him, other than Him as

00:45:05--> 00:45:13

part of the law wrote porn on the back cover of a Tafseer book and when it

00:45:15--> 00:45:17

came asked for it so he sent it to him

00:45:19--> 00:45:41

is the one who transmitted this phone. It says I don't figure it out a bit, but I bet a yachtie and almost Aikido female allottee and a little more than half see what he about limiti while hydro 18 homina en de la stuffy, old enough See, gentlemen fatten one and enough city before marotti. But later in the poem, he says,

00:45:42--> 00:45:48

well for crew, Lee was for that in Lazio in Alberta, Canada, Vina

00:45:50--> 00:46:06

Abaddon was from the who that so it's a very beautiful poem. It's a it's a longer poem, but he says, I am I am the one in need to the Lord of the creations and for people a lot of very earthy, and I'm gonna say he was like in his diminutive from his skin.

00:46:07--> 00:46:52

Because veerman miskeen, the little miskeen and the little miskeen famous mortality in all of my conditions, and available enough Siva limiti. I'm the one who transgressed myself and my enough strengths aggressively. So I try to transgress her key trends or trends occurrences me, way of identity or Cairo a determiner in D. And if God comes to us from our Lord, then it comes, then only then it comes, you know, we have lost the theater MC Jellybean fountain I can bring about any benefit for myself. I can procure any benefit from myself or myself, when I add enough Silesia for Marathi, nor can I spare her of any harm. And then later, he says,

00:46:53--> 00:47:25

One factor when he asked for that in Lesson One, you know, that was the was fifth that is the attribute of the essence, it is the essential attribute attribute of the essence, not an incidental attribute attribute of the essence means you can never be detached from one factor leave us with that in Lesson One ABA, and poverty and lead are my essential attributes in the attributes of my essence, binding forever everlasting. What got camelina

00:47:27--> 00:47:32

camelina was for the who came out again avatar mascola. Who that

00:47:34--> 00:47:45

just like Rima self sufficiency, is his, the Lord's essential attribute attribute of the essence.

00:47:46--> 00:47:46


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

can we be funny in the sense of self sufficient never can we be funny in the sales in the sense of fulfillment feeling that we are fulfilled, you know, by our Lord?

00:48:01--> 00:48:06

Absolutely. Does this gonna make us free from want?

00:48:07--> 00:48:51

It should make us free from one. Is it just about contentment? No. It is about more than contentment. Because if you found your Lord, if You mean words of Allah, Allah gave me a fool to say, then there is nothing that he missed out on. And in this case, it's not just about being content, with lack of positions. You have everything you want. So you are truly rich, truly free from one go to probably other stuff in particular, Shadowlands forgot to like we will take 10 minutes
