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

To proceed

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

so welcome to our new location.

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

There will be certainly

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

issues along the way. This was one of the issues.

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

I'm hearing myself

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

I don't so much

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

yeah.

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

So inshallah we'll try to do our best

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

try without the mic.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

If we opened the door in the back was this decrease the echo?

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

Okay, let's try now

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

maybe a little better.

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

How did you turn this on?

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

Okay. So, inshallah, today we will have

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

a lot today we will have

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

Bab Nakamura, the station of in Mirage or the sod and

00:02:16--> 00:02:29

later in the session we will talk about the cap of merchandise zaccaro the terracotta merchandise and we will talk about the cat alfetta themselves

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

the cat and the cat or the cat of merchandise.

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

So

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

first Carmen Murat

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

shannara no loss said

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

Babu makhanda murghab chapter on the station of the Mirage

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

and this is his book man as it is said in Stations of the wayfare

00:02:58--> 00:03:08

or the wayfarers and you have a lot of died in the year 480 after hedger and we have 100 stations in this book.

00:03:09--> 00:03:23

We are covering Station Number 50 today, since we started at hunger law, we finished 50 stations and we have 15 more to go. So today is the 50th station.

00:03:25--> 00:03:33

And the next one will be the segment on the valleys, spiritual valleys and the first

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

chapter or station of that segment we'll be at a sand or excellence.

00:03:40--> 00:03:45

Chef Rahim Allah said chapter on the station of the Mirage or the salt.

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

So a mirage.

00:03:48--> 00:04:03

Everybody here is familiar with the marina right? Marina is a seeker. The Marina is the seeker and Mirage is just the passive voice of a marine and worried in the passive voice would be a mirage.

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

Maria in the passive voice would be more odd. Which means what if the marine is the seeker the Mirage would be the SOC

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

and if the marine is the one who seeks Allah subhanaw taala.

00:04:21--> 00:04:28

Murata is the one who is sought by Allah subhana wa tada and what are the is the one who is sought by Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

so the sex at Palo Alto de la quinta todo, la Calcutta. Allah subhanaw taala said and you were not expecting that the book would be conveyed to you. Your means thrown down. You're here with me mean? sent down, sent down to you. You were not the last one I thought I was speaking to the prophet SAW Selim and he was telling him you were not expecting that the book will be sent to

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

To you.

00:05:01--> 00:05:17

When the prophet SAW Selim used to go out God Hara, for his handedness for his worship meditation, for his meditation, mainly meditation, the prophet was not expecting that he will become a messenger. In fact, he was surprised

00:05:20--> 00:06:10

that, you know what when he had his first encounter with jabril alehissalaam, he was extremely surprised by it. And we It was not unexpected he was not expecting of it. Likewise the prophets and messengers, we say that Prophethood is what hammer Wahhabi or QSB what's the difference between what happy and Caspi what happy is a gift from Hibbert, a gift that is given to you from a lot, cast B is from Casper which is earning you earn it you earn your ranking with Allah subhanaw taala. But prophets with is not cast B, which means what the prophets that you use, don't work harder, and become a prophet. You don't learn more and become a prophet. You don't sort of

00:06:12--> 00:06:53

seek more refinement, purification, elevation, spiritual refinement, purification and elevation, and then all the sudden you cross a threshold and you become a prophet, it's we're happy, it's a gift from Allah, Allah stuffie. Many law selects, chooses whenever he pleases. So this is in part, like the concept that we're talking about. It's Allah subhanaw taala selecting you seeking view before you seek Him, so a mirage is the one who's sought by Allah versus moreread is the one who seeks Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:54--> 00:07:06

But then, we will you know, we will come back and talk how we will need to understand this within the larger framework of a laws justice and a loss fairness.

00:07:08--> 00:07:38

the z axis accelerometer aka lemina if you have an L Machado Merida and barradas, nine wotja Aloma calm and Marathi Falconer Camila Marie. So most of those who spoke about this discipline of knowledge made the marine the seeker and the Mirage the saw two different things and consider the station of the Mirage higher than that of the marine. Absolutely, I mean, if you will consider them two different things than the one who is being sought by Allah has a higher station than the seeker

00:07:42--> 00:08:03

and then he said, enema shouto bismil Mirage de la Donna in in LA Vina Mara Duffy will come back. They refer to by the term El Mirage, the sock to the chosen ones mentioned in the report. The Chosen Ones are mentioned in the report. What is the report the report is a hadith reported by Edna Abby dernier.

00:08:05--> 00:08:56

With a weak chain of narration, weak chain of narration in which it was attributed to the province of Southern that he said in an a la habana in an unhealthy urban movie himani Bella, your healing him fear our fear, we will meet to whom fear fear will hit home with johnetta VRP Allah subhanaw taala in a reliable manner in a meaningful way, Allah has those chosen ones of his creations that he's too protective of, that he's too protective of, to subject them to try us to, didn't obey Him on it better, that he's too protective of, to subject them to trials, he MVR fair, he makes them live in complete well being. When you meet to whom we are fair, and die incomplete will be in will

00:08:56--> 00:09:04

ferromagnetic affair, and when I've made them into paradise, or caused them to enter Paradise,

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

incomplete will be without harm without being subject or subjected to heart.

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

Now you may say, but this this is in conflict with some other hobbies where Allah subhanaw taala were the prophets of Salaam for instance tells us a shot danesi of near and dear similan said falam said the people that he will be tried the most are the prophets and then those who are closest and then those who are closest. And there are multitudes of Hadith about the reward of the law and how people are chosen for trials to be tested and to be refined and to be elevated. So how do we reconcile? We don't need to reconcile. If you have a heavy Saha and Hades life. You don't treat the reconcile between Sahaba

00:10:02--> 00:10:19

You don't need to reconcile between the Koran and Sahih Hadith, and anything except for mental axioms and things perceptible by the senses, and another idea or heaviside. Right?

00:10:20--> 00:11:05

Otherwise you don't need to reconcile. So you don't need to reconcile between philosophical theories or logical theories or precepts of logic, except for the myth that axioms meant that axioms are also part of logic, what is what like, what are the Aristotelian formulated law of non contradiction? You do you need to reconcile anything with that, because non contradiction is not, you know, one thing cannot be, cannot be and not be, at the same time, in the same respect, that there is an interaction, you really can't to defy that mental axiom, you know, the hole is bigger than the part it's an interaction, you can't defy that interaction.

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

Likewise,

00:11:09--> 00:11:40

things that are perceptive by the senses. So you do need to reconcile your understanding of the app and the Hadith was meant that axioms and things perceptible by the senses, not with intellectual conventions, not with social conventions, not with a Bible studies, not with anything else. That's it. So the the why authentic Lee related work has to be reconciled with authentically related divine instruction, or mentored axioms, or

00:11:41--> 00:12:03

things perceptible by the senses, things perceptible by the senses. And that's it. So here we have some authentic hobbies, and we have some seeming contradiction was some weak how these how to reconcile, we don't need to reconcile. However, having said that, does that mean

00:12:05--> 00:12:50

does that mean? That the whole concept is an invalid concept, the concept of Hades of life is an invalid concept. You have to be very careful about this. The fact that the Hobbes's life does not mean the meaning of it was life. First of all, the weekend hobbies are acted upon by the vast majority of scholars in certain areas if they don't establish new rulings and if they don't, basically contradict a an established concept or established principle or established Maxim, that they are acted upon by the vast majority of scholars, there are very, very few scholars who did not act upon the Hadees of life, the mama mama used to serve us the favor of life over PS over analogy.

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

So, that is the the ongoing tradition the ongoing tradition is to act upon at least

00:12:59--> 00:13:50

with certain conditions, they should not be too weak that there should not be in conflict with some other established principle in the deen there should not be in conflict with you know, in an in irreconcilable conflict with another hobbyist, and so on and so forth. So, the meaning here of this particular hobbies is not to be completely dismissed, in that Allah Habana in an unhappy yoga movie amounted but you're here in prfa, where you meet on VR for a while to hit home with Janata, prfa. Allah has those chosen of his creations, he's too protective of the subject of them to trials, he will make them live in complete well being by incomplete well being be enter or enter and enter

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

Paradise and complete well being

00:13:54--> 00:14:04

the concept to hear that we can that we can accept we cannot accept the concept that people who are tried are trying because they are basically

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

sort of lesser than the people who are not have not been tried or that do not get tried.

00:14:16--> 00:14:34

Or they are not as deserving or not as worthy as the people who get tried, because if the profits are the people to be tried the most, then we cannot claim that anyone else exceeds them in virtue or ranking. But we could say that, you know, for over the people who

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

certain Chosen People do not get tried.

00:14:42--> 00:14:56

A lot chooses them for it to have a life of prosperity, and to not be tried. And this would be his his will. You know, he wills whatever whatever he pleases like

00:15:02--> 00:15:34

We can say that sadness when a man although the there is a mention of a trial for sadness when a man but but his trial certainly were much, much less than than anyone else You mean he lived, he grew up in prosperity and they would la Salaam was his father and the wood was a king also and he became a king. After the widow, he said, he was given King, the, you know, Kingdom or Dominion that has not been given to someone, before him or after him.

00:15:35--> 00:15:51

So he lived in Africa and he died in Africa, he was also a prophet, he was not like sort of just a king, he was also a prophet. So he lived in Africa and died an affair charlyne or will enter Paradise and Sophia.

00:15:52--> 00:16:01

So, you could say that some people do actually have pretty easy lives. And for them,

00:16:02--> 00:16:28

they should not be looking for trials basically for the refinement and elevation purification, they should be concerned, they should ask a lot for our fear, they should ask a lot for complete well being and they should be content with their easy lives, they should certainly Excel and worship and excel and coming closer to Allah subhanaw taala. But it is not necessary to be tried to be

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

you know, to be elevated or purified, it can be purified without being dry. You can also say that this hobbies would mean

00:16:44--> 00:16:56

would would would support the concept of a mirage, the sod that lasts seeks certain people out for Elevation for purification, for refinements, Allah seeks them.

00:16:57--> 00:17:05

Certainly Allah does seek them. Because if Allah does not seek you, you cannot seek Him to begin with right.

00:17:06--> 00:17:12

You know, so you you seeking Allah subhanaw taala means that you have been invited.

00:17:14--> 00:17:35

Right? Because without that invitation, you cannot seek Him. He can't on your own find him. You can't on your own seek him You can't on your own find him It has to be by invitation, it is only by invitation. So there to some extent, no marine is not more odd.

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

Right? No seeker is not sought, because in order for you to seek Him, He will have to have decreed that he wants you.

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

You know.

00:17:51--> 00:18:18

So, so even Navara him Allah said that if he makes you ask him, if he facilitates draw for you, then he wanted to respond. He wanted to answer you. He wanted to grant you what you want. If he makes that easy for you. That is why our righteous predecessors used to say, we don't, we're not concerned about

00:18:19--> 00:18:49

it. We're concerned about our data. We're not concerned about the response. We're concerned about, you know, the drive itself. You know, if our goal is sincere and genuine, the response is guaranteed. So I'm really not concerned about the response, not know that middleham manageable in the middle Muhammad wa, I'm not really concerned about the response, I am just concerned about the god to make a genuine sincere That should be your concern. So,

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

in some sense, every marine is a moron every seeker is to some extent sought.

00:18:59--> 00:19:11

So what why is he making them to different stations of every more each should be morale. And if every moron should be also a seeker because Allah will not want someone who does not want a low

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

will allow one want someone who does not want to learn?

00:19:16--> 00:19:43

No, no, Allah would not want someone who does not want him. So in that case, but allow me may may facilitate your path to him facilitate the road May, you know extend you an invitation and facilitate like, like Allah subhanaw taala they gave this example of Allah subhanaw taala sending messengers or someone not not not

00:19:44--> 00:19:49

someone sending a messenger to invite you to then walima for instance.

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

They just go out and tell you, you're invited to this one EMA on that day at that particular location and so on and

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

And that's it.

00:20:02--> 00:20:09

But there are people who you know, will be invited and someone will tell them we will come and pick you up

00:20:10--> 00:20:21

on that day and some people will get reminders and then they will they would get like a ride also a free ride by you know the

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

email or the person inviting them to they will leave

00:20:29--> 00:20:34

and that that is that is a valid concept. How do we understand this concept?

00:20:35--> 00:21:04

We have to understand that within that framework, the larger framework of laws, justice and fairness because when the Buddha Masada Lost Planet Allah said locality to do an Asana Veneto law had well qualified him I was able to become but unto mushroom and follow up. You have a fairly Masha was the woman by the name of Mr. Martin all the way no mercy. So like the Jews and Christians said, we are the children of Allah and His Beloved ones.

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

say to them,

00:21:07--> 00:21:10

why does he then punish you for your misdeeds?

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

But until

00:21:13--> 00:21:18

now, you are human beings, like the rest of his

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

creations are human beings that he created them and Halla geographer, the mayor said,

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

He forgives him whenever he pleases, and the Punisher is on wherever he pleases or determines, however he pleases, when aligned with the smarty audio without a mercy follow belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and to him to him as the return. But what is Allah subhanaw taala saying to them here, now, don't say this, don't make those claims. That that you are special. Don't make those claims that you are special, you're the less that like the rest of our loss creations. Don't say we are a lost children and he is Beloved.

00:22:01--> 00:22:54

Because you are just the rest of like the rest of our last creation. So we should not be making that those claims. We should not be having this urge, or self conceit to consider ourselves special or anything. And we should understand that when Allah seek someone, Allah sought them still within the framework of His justice and fairness. It is not just the pure favoritism, it is within the framework of a law, justice and fairness and we have to keep this always in mind. Does the profits of asylum deserve to be a step higher than the rest of the prophets and messengers even though all of them deserve the highest of stations, but the But does the prophets or Salam deserve, you could

00:22:54--> 00:23:02

always say Allah made them deserving, but he deserves it also. And that is the the sort of the

00:23:04--> 00:23:34

the that is an umbrella the the Harpy loco that is the thing that that you, you will always wonder about, you will always wonder about the concept of other the concept of predetermination or predestination. I'm Ron Hartfield. But we have to, we have to be mindful of our lost parents and justice all the time. And don't think of ourselves as special.

00:23:36--> 00:23:52

And ask Allah subhanaw taala and we will come back at the end of this talk. And because because most of the talk here will be about will not be about what you will do, will be about what Allah does to you. Because here you are the one being saw.

00:23:53--> 00:24:37

You are not the seeker, you're the one that is being sought. And then the CFO will start to divide that station into the three degrees he says What a moron says that there are three levels for the Mirage and he will divide them into three degrees. What is the what is it that we are looking for here? What is it that we are looking for, because all of this will be what Allah will do to you, not what you will do to Allah subhanaw taala or when you know nothing here that is mentioned is about you. There is no action plan for you here. It is all a description of what a law does to those that are law chooses the law select

00:24:39--> 00:24:56

to be devoted or to be to be invited by him. I think that the main benefits here, the main benefit here is to understand or to have

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

to be able to

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

recognize when Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:06--> 00:25:19

seeks you, and it's very important here, many people, people always say, you know, how do we know our ranking with the last one on top? How do we know where we are with a lot?

00:25:21--> 00:25:25

Our significance in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala How do we know about this?

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

How do I know that Allah is pleased with me

00:25:30--> 00:25:30

and

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

also said

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

a lot

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

of direct funds or female PMO

00:25:40--> 00:25:56

irata Antartica direct funds or female PMO if you want to know you're standing with a law, then then look at where you stand. Or look at where he made use then look at where he made you stand.

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

If you want to know you're standing with Allah, look at where he made you stand.

00:26:03--> 00:26:11

Are you standing in prayer for instance, in the middle of the night and that's where you belong. That is that is your macom

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

later the scholars have modified it.

00:26:18--> 00:26:37

And they sort of shortened the phrase to be more sort of write more and they said McCormick I saw karma, my karma ties to our karma. Which means your station is where he made you stand mahkamah is your station hifu aka MK is where he made you stand.

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

So if

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

if you're if you if you're busy

00:26:46--> 00:27:34

taking care of your children and or visiting the sick, helping the needy, coming to the masjid learning Messiah for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala praying at night this is this is where he belonged. This is where he made you stand. And that is where your macaron is. So it is pretty easy sprays. Now, all the levels that the sheriff will talk about, it is about you know, it's about this. So if you want to know your macam know, you know learn those levels and see if he is seeking you or not, he says and ooda the first level here on the asimilar abdomen specially for Iran and ERC malaba who are most tertiary from

00:27:36--> 00:27:59

Iran. The first level is where he protects Allah subhanaw taala with where he protects his servant by force, when he or she attempts and imprudence. Jaffa is imprudence, the imprudence you know of the of this obedience the imprudence of walking away from Allah subhanaw taala all of this is

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

but

00:28:05--> 00:28:17

so, the first level is when Allah subhanaw taala protects you by force by seizure, you know by compulsion, like you really want

00:28:19--> 00:28:28

to mess up and if he prevents you he holds you back he prevents you from this obedience and he

00:28:29--> 00:28:34

forbids you from that tendency or that attempt

00:28:36--> 00:28:48

wickedness so he says how does Allah subhanaw taala do this how does he by force protect you from your own imprudence and your own your own ignorance

00:28:49--> 00:29:04

based on this issue however one bit on this is our spoiling the desires to is pretty similar. What are we filming last, barring the pleasures spoiling the desires barring barring the pleasures

00:29:05--> 00:29:14

whatever it is that you desire because of the hardware to cover in the dounia Hello Takata in alarm significant we have another okay for Carmelo Anthony is

00:29:16--> 00:29:36

beautiful and the green fresh and beautiful and the shower are attempting you know, in fact, in sort of an IRA philosophy Rosada says and sort out an IRA surah Allah tells us that the shaytaan said to Allah subhana wa tada

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

tada habima coordinate on serata can muster team similarity and human being at the moment of fame on a man he wants to marry him. What did he do extra Han shaqiri shavon said to Allah but because of how you misguided me, I will ambush them by your straight path and then I will come to them from the front from the back from the right side and from the left.

00:30:00--> 00:30:24

from every side you know people get ambushed from all sides but as I said, He will never be able to come to you from the from the top because that's your connection with a loss of data. But then I'll come to you know, to them from all sides and I've been our best interpreted this the meanwhile coming to them from the front to Z and adonia stability phi glorify,

00:30:26--> 00:30:33

magnify in their eyes, the donia coming them from the back is the ski confirm era, it's to raise doubts about

00:30:34--> 00:30:40

an afterlife to raise doubts in their hearts and minds about the presence of an afterlife

00:30:41--> 00:30:58

coming from the right side as what is basically from make distasteful to them the Hassan at the good deeds, good deeds are right side or right hand good deeds, he will make them distasteful, hard, you know, cumbersome,

00:31:00--> 00:31:01

unpleasant,

00:31:03--> 00:31:51

up until we overcome him and then they will become pleasant. And then coming from the left side, basically you will adore and make very tempting the say the misdeeds. So that's the that's the Satan's plan. So that's the Satan's plan. And you should struggle against this plan. Allah subhanho wa Taala to beautify and basically make tempting misdeeds Allah subhanaw taala would ruin them. You know, so the the things that people desire the most, you know, the current fleshly desires of the body that people desire the most and find the most tempting, there'll be distasteful to you, once they are you know, that you are you have been invited that you are being saw

00:31:52--> 00:32:22

and it does not mean that it does not mean that you will have no shower it does not mean that you would have no basically urge to have no sort of desire. It just means that you know, your your reflection, your thought of thoughts of the hereafter and you know, or of a loss of Hannah or Tyler will ruin that temptation would ruin that pleasure will ruin that desire spoil it

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

that it would just be disgusting.

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

You know, so whenever whenever there's a plan throws any

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

like bad thoughts in your mind, he will be repugnant to you in repulsive disgusting because of your

00:32:44--> 00:32:49

immediate thought of him would be Warhammer behala

00:32:50--> 00:33:24

say newsflash ram hammock be Warhammer be here, and he was about he had, he had almost reached out to her. Lola Robert handler, he had not seen the proof of his door, the proof of his Lord like a sign from his Lord, sign from his Lord, it keep in mind that the best way here to recite this is to say what occurred to him and to start there is a star player. Well, I called him they reached out to him.

00:33:26--> 00:33:42

And then you start Warhammer behala Robbie, and he reached out to her had he not he would have reached out which would mean here he would have reached out to her Have you not seen a sign from his Lord, because his human

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

makeup would make him

00:33:47--> 00:34:08

desire, she was she has, you know exceedingly beautiful. So, he would have made him desire is human creation would have made him desire had he not? But because he saw the sign from his Lord, because he remembered he you know, just like a law reminded them

00:34:12--> 00:34:14

of the evil of this and

00:34:15--> 00:34:18

and the wickedness of this

00:34:19--> 00:34:59

transgression. And then he he did not reach out to her to begin with. It was not like you know, that he attempted anything and then he stopped No, he did not make an attempt because he saw a sign from his door. So the Masia becomes repulsive term visas. However, what are we spoiling the desires barring the pleasures? Not because you're not human anymore, and you don't have that tendency anymore? You don't have that urge that desire anymore and no, because of the overriding thought of, you know, the displeasure of Allah, the overriding thoughts of the consequences of the sin

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

The outcome, the aftermath, you know, that overriding thought will prevail. And we'll make that sin repulsive and disgusting. It's just like, you know, someone who.

00:35:17--> 00:35:28

Yeah, someone and I don't want to say that's because the anorexia is a disease. But you see how like people who are particularly like too,

00:35:29--> 00:35:47

too conscious of their weight, like, you know, and MBC food, and sometimes they get nauseous, just by the sight of the food, because they're thinking of the consequences. They think if I indulge, or not just indulge, if I eat, you know, a little bit of the sweets,

00:35:48--> 00:35:51

then I may gain weight, and the food becomes

00:35:52--> 00:36:08

sort of repulsive to them. Just the very sight of it. And certainly, anorexia is a disease and I don't want you to be sick, but, but this is the concept anyway. And by the way, you don't have to be anorexic. But if you're just watching

00:36:10--> 00:36:15

your weight, and then you see desserts, sometimes you feel

00:36:17--> 00:36:39

despite the fact that prior to this, you may have really desired to eat, you know, and eat a lot of it. But now that you're watching your weight, and you're thinking and you're thinking of the consequences, prevail in your mind, then the result will look very distasteful to you.

00:36:41--> 00:36:46

Or, that's the concept anyway, so families shall act without

00:36:47--> 00:37:16

spoiling the desires by buying the pleasures and this would be a great gift from Allah subhanaw taala. You can imagine like a diabetic, for instance, who hates sweets, isn't that a great gift from Allah, if you're the better, you know, to hate sweets, every time you eat sweets, he vomiter you get nauseous or something happens to you that you will be conditioned over time to hate them.

00:37:17--> 00:37:25

The weather, you will not be conditioned over time to hate them. And, you know, the hate the smell of sweets.

00:37:27--> 00:37:46

Were like this, you know, Marcy, the if we think of the outcome of Massey, not only in the Fira, but also in the dunya. If we think if we're thoughtful, mindful of the outcome of Massey, they will be repugnant, they will be repulsive.

00:37:48--> 00:37:56

So that's the first thing the last minute Allah would do, for the ones that are being sought. And then he said

00:37:58--> 00:38:36

within his shower to the awakened molest was that was that the Masonic in matabele, here, Accra and closing the paths to ruin in their face by force, closing the paths to ruin, not only that, he will make them distasteful, but he will make them unreachable, you know, he will make mercy unreachable, he will, you know, close doors in front of you, you will close the gates, you want to walk down that path, he closes it, you know, and and it could be it could be like a you want to measure in a particular you want to a particular major in college for instance. And he doesn't let you

00:38:38--> 00:38:47

major in that field. Because he knows that the end of that road, I mean, if you go there and you like work this job, he eventually at the end,

00:38:48--> 00:39:02

you may end up losing your faith you may end up being wicked being corrupt to be in this being that So, he just closes the door. You will not know that you know at the time you may feel sort of

00:39:04--> 00:39:56

grieved by the loss or this or that. But you did not know that's why I asked anticorrosion Ohio like when you made this like I think there would be much good there in for you was that the Masonic Motavalli economic enclosing the path to ruin in the face by force. Keep in mind, if you are not there, it does not mean that a lot of dislikes you if you are being tried. If you have this strong sort of desire for things that are suboptimal or things that are sinful, it may very well be that you're being tested that your test has been intensified and that eventually Allah because

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

keep in mind for for everyone to actually

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

their potential, they actualize their potential.

00:40:10--> 00:40:39

You know, based on what that potential is, what Allah subhanaw taala meant for their potential, what potential Allah wants them to actualize? And their personal inclinations, personal inclinations. So for some people, the actualization of their potential is by going through hard tests and succeeding. And for some people, the actualization of their potential is by a lot closing the doors, and making things, you know, unappealing to them.

00:40:40--> 00:41:08

Just unappealing, and then they will actualize their potential this way, but for other people, they don't actualize their potential by the doors being closed in their face, they actualize their potential by the all the doors being open. And they have this strong urge and strong desire for everything for all dimasi everything looks tempting, but they continue to fight and fight and struggle and resist

00:41:09--> 00:41:20

with willpower, resolve resoluteness, until they make it you know, to the shores of safety. And for those people, that is their actualization of their potential.

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

So if you feel that, that you

00:41:28--> 00:41:37

but at the end of the day for all of us, people who commit sins without any form of or any

00:41:39--> 00:41:57

remorse whatsoever, they have to admit, those people are far away from Allah, people who commit sins, without any remorse, they are far away from them, at the time they committed that sin, certainly no one should give up until the you know, rather than of death.

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

No one should, should give up.

00:42:02--> 00:42:14

But if you feel that you know that you can commit sins, and sins are not just limited to the you know, the popular sins or the external sins.

00:42:15--> 00:42:30

Sins of the heart are much greater, much worse than the sins of the body. But if you feel that you're committing sins, and you're not having any remorse, then you know that you're far away from Allah, but the people who are fighting and struggling and so on,

00:42:31--> 00:42:41

they should not you know, perceive this as being basically removed from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah.

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

Some people will have their path facilitated, where they will have their

00:42:51--> 00:43:41

their road paved for them, but some people will not and everyone would actualize their potential has decreed by Allah subhanaw taala if they strive for his sake, then the sheikh said without added to Sania any other r&d lab, Dr. Evil not the second level is to relieve the servant from the temporal outcomes of his or her shortcomings. Now, that the first level he will keep you from shortcomings, he will protect you from sin, He will protect you from even falling short. So, he will give you the energy to pray, he will give you the energy to concentrate in your prayer, he will give you the clarity of mind he will give you all of that. But then khulumani album Hopper, right all of the

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

children of Adam are prone to error. So when you fall into error, you know his most beloved the ones that he sought to be devoted when they fall into error.

00:43:54--> 00:44:52

He basically protects them from the aftermath, from the consequences of this error. The other anila are even not relieved the servant from the temporal outcomes of his or her shortcomings while you are v human symmetry, Emma, spear him or her of reproach, where you Malika who are our people have outlet and give him or her give him or her control over the consequences of their blunders control over the consequences of their of their blunders. So your blunders will not cause you to slip and fall and break your neck. No, you will be able to regain your balance very quickly. You'll slip a little bit but he will quickly allow you to regain your balance and to carry on on your path. Even

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

though you slipped you did slip but you will regain your balance very quickly. While you're Mallika who are people have felt

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

And giving him or her control over the consequences of their blunders. And then he gives you an example cannot follow between a man or a salon. He in a catalog file for Hamilton water rehab, ruhollah asked for now one of

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

the musala he said, I'm paying

00:45:19--> 00:46:06

workers a bit rcfe when amiata Bala he came out about other mono woodware units. So can I follow bisola monnalisa as he did with Suleiman alehissalaam. He in a cattle fight, when he came to the horses, killed the horses, you know, whether it's my man killed them, or groomed them, you know, with his own hands afterwards. It's controversial what he did photography kamasan, the superior nap, it's controversial what this means whether he actually slaughtered them, but if he slaughtered them, then he, we will have to assume that he distributed the meat, because a profit, like a great profit or loss of data, which is not slaughter, for torture, and for nonsense. So he slaughtered them

00:46:06--> 00:46:11

probably distributed their meat, he liked his horses, so much they kept

00:46:12--> 00:46:17

and he missed his word, you know, after us.

00:46:18--> 00:46:25

So he decided that he the horses, that became a trial for him and became so tempting for him, and he was

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

harmful, that he would slaughter them all.

00:46:30--> 00:46:54

And then we've assumed that he distributed the meter made use of it or something. But then the other interpretation is that for coffee farmers have disappeared on Amazon means to wipe that he groomed them by himself after, afterwards that you know, to basically show humility to Allah subhanaw taala. Because he was looking at them being displayed, you know, passing in front of him,

00:46:55--> 00:47:17

being displayed before before him. And then he wanted to humble himself and show your ability to Allah. So he either groomed them by himself, wash them, groom them by himself, or his daughter them because they kept them from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala had a time of remembrance. So

00:47:18--> 00:47:42

but when he did this, then Allah subhanaw taala did not blame him, he carried him on the wind, the gentle and the stormy. So he was given a substitute for the horses. So the chef is taking the interpretation that he killed the horses, and he's taken the interpretation that this was suboptimal of him alehissalaam to have killed the horses.

00:47:44--> 00:48:18

And it was also, you know, that that that whole incident took place after you know, the display of horses, distracted him from his word of Vic. So there was like some shortcoming here, you know, on the part of, so what I meant is that on whether it's giving the horses or be distracted prior to this, by the horses, there was some shortcoming, but at the end, Allah subhanaw taala gave him instead of the horse is the win. So I like carried him upon the winds

00:48:20--> 00:48:25

and certainly the that is greater than the horses.

00:48:28--> 00:48:44

So he was given a substitute for the horses, and then we found it Musa alayhis salam in alpha, alpha, alpha beta CFE. Likewise, he did with musala his salon when he threw the tablets down and grabbed his brothers had

00:48:46--> 00:49:00

while amiata ballet, he came out abala Adam one who would why Jonas, he did not blame him like he did with Adam, the wood and universe, you know, so, everybody was blamed for their shortcomings.

00:49:03--> 00:49:10

Adam you know, Adam, the wood and units were blamed, you know, Yunus was blamed when he left the village,

00:49:11--> 00:49:15

Adam was blamed when he ate from the tree.

00:49:17--> 00:49:59

And the wood was blamed when he sort of made a quick judgment about a case of dispute before he listened to both parties. So all of them were blamed for their shortcomings, but most I was not blamed when he did this to his brother, when he those are the tablets that he was given by Allah tala. He threw them down, because he used he you know, and this is, this is so beautiful, because you have to understand that people have different personal inclinations. And some people are, you know, they have the different types of temper, and so musala is around and as

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

Time rahimullah says McCann talks about you know that moussaka Allah hey it

00:50:07--> 00:50:14

was actually our to hook evatik you know Moosa used to be in the form of gll my glory

00:50:16--> 00:50:19

powerful you know assertive

00:50:20--> 00:50:22

glorious in everything he does

00:50:23--> 00:50:36

you know splitting the sea and all everything so can other handsome gelato counter actually art? Who cares? Why is Canada to demand what they actually are to cover they can Isa

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

he took the attribute of or you know the attributes of beauty and history are was likewise it's about mercy and it's about gentleness and as well Mohamed Khanna Allah Hey, it

00:50:52--> 00:51:22

was actually Mohammed sauce lm was basically took the attribute of perfection, the perfect balance between the man and jela because both accurate both sets of attributes, the attributes of jalon rigor, you know, glory and rigor, belong to Allah subhanaw taala, right or wrong? Because they keep in mind what what makes the whole, what makes a lot of people particularly from a Christian background,

00:51:23--> 00:51:38

lose faith is when they see, you know, how could this happen? How, you know, how could there be famines? How could there be earthquakes, well, these are the attributes of rigor, and if you will not accept those attributes of rigor,

00:51:39--> 00:51:56

your whole worldview will crumble, if it is just about, you know, unconditional love, which which is, which is nowhere, you know, God in the Bible, there is nowhere and if he put unconditioned, Google unconditional love

00:51:57--> 00:52:08

and branching off, but it's okay. So William Lane Craig, for instance, is talking about, you know, because William Lane Craig, use the N medical term or use the, you know,

00:52:11--> 00:52:39

use some of our medical and in his, basically defense of the existence of God. So in order for him to say, and this is the the Muslim man with color, in order for him to say no, I don't have, particularly nowadays everybody needs to say that. No, I have nothing to do with Islam, and I actually am not warm to Islam whatsoever. He, he makes sure to say why

00:52:40--> 00:53:33

he why Islam is inferior to Christianity. And then he says, the thing that he keeps on repeating is that the God, the God in Christianity is a God with unconditional love. He is the ultimate the perfect the greatest being, because he has unconditional love. And if you just Google does, Does, does God love unconditionally, or the unconditional love of God, you will find, you know, multitude of priests and pastors who are saying that this is this notion is completely false, proven from the Bible from you know, 70 plus verses in the Bible, that this notion is completely false. It is a completely false notion.

00:53:35--> 00:53:42

And was without you understanding that all all things are from Allah subhanaw taala,

00:53:43--> 00:54:18

either Heidi or Sheree, without you having coming to terms, coming to terms with color, predestination, and everything in this dominion, being under his control, whether it see it looks good or not, it is good or bad, either Heidi or sorry, the other good and evil is from him. subhanaw taala but the shadow reliance of La Evil has not attributed to him because evil, the evil that happens in this universe with in his master plan within this sort of

00:54:20--> 00:54:38

theodicy of perpetual optimism within the master plan of Allah subhanaw taala. It is not absolute evil, and it may not be attributed to Allah subhanaw taala but all come everything comes from Allah. Yes, everything comes from Allah. So these attributes of rigor

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

come from Allah gll come from Allah. Yes. And then there is punishment all over the Bible and the law punishes the wrongdoers and punishes you know, the this believers and so on and so forth. And so these are attributes of gll and attributes of demand.

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

The attributes of Jamal the attributes of beauty that is of mercy as

00:55:05--> 00:55:08

Allah subhanaw taala wanted the study of

00:55:10--> 00:55:13

Moosa to be the Sharia of gll

00:55:15--> 00:55:18

and wanted the Sharia he said to be the Sharia of the man.

00:55:19--> 00:56:00

Keep in mind, why is this because the Sharia of a sec complimented the Sharia, Muslim was not independent of it. So the law was was there and he saw a salon did not come to break the law violate the law. Absolutely, he said that I came to uphold the law. So the Sharia is, is not to be seen independently from the Sharia of Moosa, it came to compliment it. So it came to can infuse spirituality, and infuse, you know, mercy, and then you infuse all of those attributes of Japan into ashari are of gela of rigor and glory

00:56:02--> 00:56:08

to be balanced, but they are Mohamed Salah Salem, because it was independent, were more human and I had a

00:56:10--> 00:56:24

look at Marina Ayman Al Khattab where Mohammed Ali and we had sent down the book to you in truth, most of the Fatima venom to confirm to corroborate and to confirm the books before when Mohammed an ally and to be

00:56:26--> 00:56:55

to supersede them, to supersede them. So, it is is it isn't it is independent, therefore, it has to come balanced in how to come balance independent of any other area, it has to have both attributes of Joanne and attributes of demand, the attributes of rigor and the attributes of beauty. So it has to be a study of care, man shahryar perfection

00:56:56--> 00:57:19

of perfection, both general and German. So anyway, but we are talking about Musa alayhis salam and how he used to have you know that that sort of whatever I don't want to be disrespected like whatever word that is, we should describe this with strength, vigor, rigor.

00:57:21--> 00:57:23

assertiveness, forcefulness.

00:57:26--> 00:57:38

So, so he threw the tablets on the ground, and these are tablets that Allah has given him, you know, on the mountain, so it is something that would certainly look

00:57:40--> 00:57:50

sort of shocking. And then he took and this is a prophet his brother was a prophet. So he grabbed them from his hair and pulled them around and

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

all of this because he used to get this angry sometimes

00:57:59--> 00:58:02

but there's a lot of blame, you know, a lot of my blame.

00:58:04--> 00:58:31

But you have to also understand this is this is person and inclination. And we have to say so Why blame some people are not mean other people but you have to understand that this is you can't ask Allah tala why Laos, Allah methadone, methadone, you have is not to be questioned about what he does and everyone else is to be questioned and interrogated about what they do, but Allah is not to be questioned about here what what he does,

00:58:32--> 00:59:05

yet, deep in your mind, you will have to say that this, this have did all of this has to fit within the framework of a law, justice and fairness. Keep in mind that what what what Moosa was tasked for is huge, right? Wasn't that huge, what he was, he was tasked to go up to the sort of the most powerful and tyrannical half his time for our

00:59:06--> 00:59:09

and invite him to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:59:10--> 00:59:11

And

00:59:12--> 00:59:22

what he went through was, was was enormous in his life, what musalla He said, I went through, you know, from the very beginning, from the time he was thrown into the

00:59:23--> 00:59:59

water stream, the river, what he went through in his life was was enormous. So when sir, when someone is so dear to you, and they have done so much for you, wouldn't you forgive them for you know, their sort of shortcomings here and there, how you would not even consider them shortcomings, they would just, you would not even think about them, if they had already done so much for you. And that is that's what it is. That's how we should understand that you know, the closer you get to Allah

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

manansala the more forgiving he will be of your shortcomings. Finally adonijah to satisfy its departed happy arbiter who was the philosopher who will be philosophy he came up with a Moosa will correct me sooner and faster I would enough see you upcoming harassment modern

01:00:19--> 01:00:30

society third developer happy the third level is for the true one to selecting server was the philosophy er will be hardest. For the favor of ultimate devotion

01:00:31--> 01:01:18

came after a Moosa O'Hara the activists wanna like when he reached out to Musa alayhis salam when he went out for a tours. First para would enough see so he made he had him worked out for himself were upcoming Horace Mann was Tara and left of him a loan, the image alone the image, the loan the image, he basically purified him for devotion to Allah subhanaw taala and left for him his name and his body and his attributes by which he is recognized in this dunya that is what was left of him to be recognized by the people on dystonia to be identified and recognized by his story. But he was actually not there, he was all with Allah subhanaw taala complete devotion to Allah subhanaw taala

01:01:19--> 01:01:38

the loan the image temporarily alone, the image, the body, the name, the attributes, his movement, in this life is just for him to be identified and recognized by the people but he was not there, he had completely vanished into you know,

01:01:39--> 01:01:50

the divide in the sense of the Sunni sinful annihilation, not the better, or the deviance and formulation cardella stuff nothing to it like Hispanic

01:01:53--> 01:01:54

challah will come back in seven minutes.
