Channel: Hatem al-Haj
Today we will
talking about who are the solutions.
Last time we talked about?
And today we will talk about sonar,
which are the secrets of the realities of
which are the seven theories of the secrets of yoga. And I discovered the subtleties of Paragon
another happy philosopher.
He said, The secrets of the realities of yoga are three things.
three years of continual thinking that has served for now, let's hear from one side
of us with caffeine and similar
ones, Gods fear, from one surprise
on the Seattle Washington area for getting the offense to say,
country three comes from the Intelligence
Committee in Toronto,
Canada, counting from the 20s forever, because the content is included among the generality of addressees in the saying of a loss of data and turning to a library contains all of you. So the order also.
so what does he mean by the means of getting another is to sort out, or to differentiate between the fear of God from which is once pride.
Many people repent for their own reason.
Their event is sincere repentance is their repentance for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Some people retire just because they gave up on the Senate
or the Senate is just too much hassle to pursue.
Some people return to because they don't have the resolve to pursue the same thing.
And some people return for various reasons some people refer to because of the fear of loss in this way.
People who have like misconduct behaved themselves because they fear some loss and
eventually they will not be
held accountable for the saying that they're not committing anymore is that repentance or sincere repentance that erases the sins that you have committed in the past? No.
They are not sinning anymore. They will not be held accountable.
But is that retention sincere enough? No. But it is not only it is not only these are the obvious meetings,
or events because he's afraid of word of the loss. He's afraid of his wife, he's afraid of his parents. You know,
that's, that's the obvious thing.
But there is also
there are more subtle meanings. Someone may repent because he's afraid for his house for his face, like he feels bestowed on him favors that he fears he may lose. He may he fears that he may slip from the higher state down to the lower state. Just have what is the loss of power?
It is at the end of the day, self regarded, isn't it? Because
you're just afraid for your health to lose your health. You're not really
you're not really seeking the pleasure of Allah or avoiding his displeasure. You're just worried about your
old hat. And although that may work,
and one self respect is important to have respect for yourself, meaning that you should deem yourself above, you know, looseness and
sinfulness and things of that nature. And that is good. But that is certainly not the ultimate training. And that is not what you should be pursuing. Ultimately, ultimately, you're pursuing the pleasure of a love is the one who created you, the one who brought you to this existence, the one who's feeding you, the one who was nurturing to you, the one who's making your heart beat now, when you're not paying attention, and all of this, so is one thing is to have a space here for your health, Canada's even their religious aspect of it, we're not talking about the law,
but basically, to fear that you may lose your space.
But here, you're watching your station, you're not watching a book, you're working for your station, you're not working for the pleasure of a lesson.
And what you should be doing is to be working for the pleasure of law, and not the habit,
not the state or the state of fear of losing. So that is one thing.
The second circuit, you mentioned that is missing in the interior, which is to forget the offense to forget the same
to forget the sin. But will you forgive your sin? And why would you forgive your sins, shouldn't you be in remembrance of the time of your sin?
Should you should you should you try to forgive yourself or record yourself, bring it to the floor, push it to the back.
It depends it depends on your condition.
You're trying to push it to the back, if you have suffered. Because you know that the sweetness and the purity of here together in this limitless economy.
And so when you when you have this sweetness of togetherness with a loss of power, tada when you feel you know the the connection with a lie, you feel that you are basically a lot of preschool is mercy and compassion on you and accepted you and part of you. And now we have these moments of joy, joy with this together this joy in this togetherness with a lot
of candy or your Ma.
So if if you have this
if you have this feeling, can you somehow the previous sin to ruin this state
your state of enjoying a loss versus compassion and having a good source of of loss
to the center ruin the state and then forgive the sin
because it can result in death. It can result in the fat, when you're remembering that you have sinned against it may take away from the sweetness of these moments. Isn't that true? Like what when you remember your previous
like, what when you have like a moment of Safar or was your spouse for instance, and you are very number of previous like mishaps in your relationship that takes away from that moment. And it does that you push this to the back. But then if you become if you if you become rebellious or if you become negative.
If you become arrogant, if you become proud, if you become overconfident, pretty cool,
bring it back to the fore.
Right, this is when you become this
rebellious, arrogant, overconfident boastful, then three call the same back to the four of your mind and and be very conscious of your previous sense so that you could be
the self that
So that's what what he means by forgiving the offense. So it depends on your health.
Sometimes he would want to forgive the offense, and sometimes he would want to remember the offense. And when he says what,
yeah, but then and repenting for repentance forever, because the return is included last
and returned to Allah, all of you. And, you know, believers
that you may prosper. So with that,
included, they're the ones who just keep them. So the one will just keep them to history. But, you know, interestingly enough, he says that,
and this, if we understand that, well, it would mean to rebound from the deficiency of his repentance, because the repentance, you know, so he has, like we said before, he has to always doubt his repentance suspect, as we suspected, that it was not for the proper reason as to the validity of his repentance perspective, the sincerity is sincerity and repenting. So you need to always renew your repentance to buy more repentance, either repentance from that, repentance, you know, repentance calls for new repentance, because it's efficient. And so to call for a new show, because show or gratitude is usually deficient. And
but you know, the, the virtuous cycle of gratitude is because gratitude itself is a gift from the Lord. So when he makes you grateful, you should be grateful for him making him grateful, because at the end of the day, it is not, it does not all emanate from you or come out from you have have not been for the cofece of Allah subhanaw taala. And his help and support and very busy would have not been grateful. So we suspect your suspect your repentance and repent from your repentance over time. And then he proceeds to say,
Sarah told us that as of last year, some of these are three things. Well, that
confirms Robaina denial. Probably photographer Miranda what he has is a lack of
are the first to behold that offense, having a decree, your offense, your action and his decree? Because when you can make the best offense simultaneously, he decreed that you can make he allow you to commit,
he created the sin that you have committed.
He isn't, you know, isn't like energy creative bachelor.
So the same was created the decree came to pass. So you have to look at the same from your end. And you have to look out and probably or the Papa or the query
for the loss of data and letting you commit that sin. That's the power of Morocco.
Which means the thought of recognize Morocco, he had the intensive of love when he allowed it to committed plenty allows you to commit that sin.
Family and somebody
for loss of power Tyler allows us to commit the sin for one of two reasons.
What better movie citric wilhelma movie inherited or governmental feed caboodle Freeman was
the first for you to recognize a separate movie provide that is my thing is decrease. go downhill. He simply His goodness and his concealment, covering up the center, well hidden
his forebears in the fairing the offender not punishing him right away or her right away. Welcome
is generosity in accepting his apology. Well first level female 30 is grace in forgiving
So these are all of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, that only the senators would recognize,
isn't that true? They're recognized to the fullest.
There is there is there are different types of recognition, there is a difference between I set you down and tell you
guys how to equalize before. That is called mental recognition. But there is the experiential recognition
that these differences apply to many things, even faith itself, we have the lens of faith. And we have the experience of face, the face to face with your taste and smell is your expansion.
The intellectual conviction is your mental faith. And many people are they stopped just at the mental faith. So they have this recognition of a lost presence. Really, they believe, because it makes sense.
But they have not tasted, they have not experienced,
we have experienced faith, the faith that the Prophet was talking about in space, that the sweetness of this is the expansion of faith, it is not just a mental face. How many person has this mental faith, it doesn't get doesn't feel any sweetness or experiencing sweetness.
That's the same applies here. So when we sit down and read about the attributes of a law that is different, the recognition of the attribute of His grace and His forgiveness, and his parents, the center would recognize all of this. And it will bring about a different a heightened level of awareness.
And not only this heightened level of love, for loss of power, because as I pointed out in the leverage of seven keys, or the commentary on on this book, he says that there is a difference between your love for someone who are in towards you for the good that you do.
And that's it. And someone else who rewards you for the good that you do. But when you when you error or when you send in or when you can make an offense. He pardons you and He forgives you and he invites you back and he either
replaces those sins with some that is you're referred to the same? No, it's not the same. Because they're
different. Don't you even notice this and
in our lives, you know, there are those people who will reward you when you do well.
But there is not a lot of people who will forgive you when you don't do it, or when you transgress them.
So you can imagine, imagine even the difference between a mother and a father. Why do people love their mothers more, or they should,
most of the time
they both could reward you, your father may be even more capable of rewarding you
but they are not as forgiving. They are not equally forgiving. The mother is more forgiving. That's why it's like, you're like what you see this often. And it's pretty telling. If your father yells at you, you're onto your mother. And if your mother yells at you, you stick around to your mother.
Yeah. And if he notices, like notice, like a four year old,
he will not find comfort except in her. You know, so if she yells at him, he can stay away for a little while, and then go back to her, you know, move a little bit closer for, you know, one step at a time to see if she will
basically take him back in her life.
So that's, that's pretty, you know, that's the example that we gave when we explained that
there is no
running away or escaping from you except to you
is when it comes to us
So, so that's the you know,
that that is one wisdom in allowing you to commit that sin. What was it that you would have this height that the phone recognition of all of these attributes, beautiful attributes is my
In his decree, you know,
you, you, you thought much better of yourself that you would not fall into this set. But maybe you were overconfident. Maybe you have too many Good stuff, good thoughts about yourself or about yourself. And a lot wanted to teach you that you are just as weak as everybody else.
This is called the same as everybody else. So he, he shows you
that you are
valid. So that's the first one. The second reason why only lets you may allow you to commit the sin is was set up by
the second establishes fee against the slave, so that he may deservingly punish him for his sin establishes, because the deserving we punish him for his sin.
But sometimes, like you have, sometimes you have
bad qualities, bad tendencies, bad inclinations.
And then those bad inclinations that are bottled up, a must have Allah will let them manifest so that he establishes his fee again,
you know, often times, you know,
the awareness, how our awareness of the sin is extremely contrasted.
Versus the Sahaba.
When they did not only look at whatever we consider to be seven, they were much more insightful
than us. So how often did we end the past? Or do we despise looking down others promises?
It is enough, even for men to the sky's the limit this brother, how many how often that we do this? For various reasons, various reasons, you know, and some of us are better than others, you know, and some of us, but, but even,
you know, so that the most, you know, ridiculous, obvious reasons would be how he looks or how to books.
But then sometimes it's even worse than sometimes it's even more subtle than this, how they act,
and sometimes their knowledge or their ignorance.
Already, you don't know that you're, you're saying that to yourself, but you don't say
and then sometimes it's also because of their sin. And certainly, you should now have good thoughts of sin and sin and sinners. It is just about to feel superior because you feel that you are just as prone to their sin, you will feel you you don't think of sin. It's it's you know, it's a violation of the bounds of a muscle.
But all of these things that are inside of this philosophy would bring down the barrier between us and verbalizing, acting upon them so that he establishes that fee against us, that you have committed this sin and that is why you're being punished for it. Keep in mind that
these inclinations can be become actions of the heart, you are liable for the actions that are their heart.
So basically, if it is just a passing thought, you look down at me just because a passing thought but it reflects an inclination that you have.
It speaks of an inclination. But then if you really do not repel it, and you allow us to basically grow in your heart
without acting upon it or verbalizing it, are you liable or you are liable? Aren't you know is the heart is not just like a passive of organ. The heart is a door just like your hands are just like your eyes.
The heart also acts
So, the actions of the heart, you are liable for them, but there is a difference between an inclination
these inclinations will manifest as you know thoughts you will not be held accountable for the thoughts, but you are held accountable for the actions of the heart and that is when the Heart
Heart allows the thought to settle, you know, invite sent or basically does not really tell, just, you know, welcomes it, if it comes in, does not work.
Okay, so now allow and establish the free against his slave
through this commitment of a sin. So, that's the first one. The first subtlety of Felber is that when you commit the sin, you're looking at these two things.
You're looking at your own sin, and you're looking at decree in allowing you to commit that sin
kind of goes into a lot more detail. And he says that you're looking at the Kabbalah and you look at yourself, you're looking at a farm who invited you to the sin, and you're looking at a worker who's waiting for your repentance.
So he said that you're looking for several years looking at several things. And so you should start from the lookout, the one who commanded you to commit this sin which has reflectometer you your empathy, your or there was a time
to the set and you're looking at your knifes
who, who's weak enough to succumb to the whispers of potato.
The second subtlety, he says, what he had to say and
see the sub say,
what upon movie, I have enough sci
say that you know who has an authentic we have? The second subtlety is to realize that the truthful and insightful person's full awareness of this sense, do not leave them any guilty. to not leave them any good deed. What does that mean? It means it does not leave them any good deeds, to be proud of, or to rely on for salvation. So your recognition, your full awareness of your sins. And that is basically people who have this complete awareness of sales and not the contracted awareness where they only think that sin is to kill someone or to steal from somebody, there's a lot more to it than just that. But
your foot recognition of your sense with you know, whatever you have submitted your whatever
surgery that you have submitted, your recognition of them will not leave you any hassle not to be proud of charity prayer.
Some have ombre, he just came back from ombre and I'm just going
you know, next
whatever month year,
and keep them going back and forth and so on. And so when the prophet SAW sounds up to one of his wives up, so just one word that cannot spoil the water of the ocean, which is what she she talked about some someone, some other wife because
he said some way because spoiling the water of the ocean. The idea here is how often do we say this, like when we sit down to eat as families or when we
have gatherings as friends? How often do we say things about other people that may spoil the ocean.
So this awareness will let you know what will now allow you to ever be proud of your Asana
which means what it means that you will always have present bizarre brokenness and humbleness and humility
and that you will never feel safe enough. You will always be watchful vigilant. You will never feel safe. You know after doing all of this, look at
the St. JOHN wants to always make you compare yourself to people
There are losers. So you say, Look at, look at me, you know, I prioritize I fast I do this, I'm charitable on the
But now, if you become Reliant dependent on your hustle net for salvation, you're destroying
what money where there's completely destroyed.
And then you're also very more prone to, to despair, when you fall into sin, because you have been reliant on the hustler
or something of that nature. That is one of the signs that you would rely upon your own our man, your own deeds, to have the spear, when you could make a mistake, because as if it were your deeds, your salvation, and now that your deeds have become interrupted, or you have fallen into sin, you have despair. But people who are ultimately rely on the they do well they do good can be avoided, that which is evil, but they are reliant on Allah subhanaw taala if they have any interruptions of their good deeds, or the trip and fall, or they suffer some loss in their hand, or their,
their dependence on Allah, to pull them up, is always there, because they have been always dependent on him, they have always felt
their need for him. So they don't despair, because Allah is always there and Love does not change laws, you know, you could become weak you could trip and fall, but what is continuous,
if he was forgiving, to be far better
he says here,
it will not make any sense we are not going to be proud of or will not be any customers are not going to be proud or reliant on your customer. For they constantly journey beholding on one side that grace of their board and on the other side of defects. So there must have these never, never dependent on the leads.
That he said.
The third subtlety, and number seven develop the Pokemon most of
fascinating want to step down as a team.
The third subtlety is that the space beholding of the decree would not allow him to see good as good or evil as ugly.
So only humans,
for he will ascend from that to be holding the fact of the decree itself. Now this is ambiguous or problematic could be ambiguous or problematic, we would consider it to be ambiguous because we know that we the author of this book is a righteous Sharia compliant scholar.
So we will always have the good thoughts and consider what ever may sound problematic to be just ambiguous and find a good explanation for it.
so which means that we will never accept anything that's problematic and that we will always we love to stick them out or we
because we love the process or something more and we love the Sahaba more and we value whatever he said, but we value up around the Sun no more and we value even the commentary
verbal or otherwise on the private some more than any other commentary.
Okay, so how do we understand that this ambiguous statement in a way that is not problematic he says that
they are the slaves of the holding of the decree without allowing him to see good as good or evil as ugly. That is, as far as these are attributed to a law, not when they are attributed to us to the self. Because evil shouldn't be seen as ugly when you attributed to the door of evil
Your sin is ugly. His decree is not
even agreed that he can live in sin. But keep in mind, we're always Cognizant, cognizant of the difference that we, as men have done, and his era that, that which he likes. And that's what he decrees, he may decree something that he does not like.
So yes, we will see evil as likely, we will see good
hustle not as good, righteousness as good, but not
as sharp. It gives a very nice parable. He says like the rays of the sun,
rays of the sun, they go through the go through different bodies of the different colors and shades. So the rays of the sun, the decrees of Allah,
as far as they are attributed to Allah, they're all good despite the rays of the sun.
And then right when the rays of the sun goes through like yellow glass, green glass,
that then you see the rays of the sun has red, green, and yellow, but the rays of the sun are not free three year regular yo is just because of the going through those bodies, they have taken those shades of colors. So likewise a decrease. So I already think that increase is good.
In the master plan of Allah subhanaw taala is good as it may be attributed to him, as the prophet SAW some upset was several essentially, and even as not to be attributed to you. As far as it is attributed to you it is not evil, because in the master plan, it's a master plan of perpetual goodness, master plan to pitch for goodness.
But when it is attributed to you, it is obsolete. So you're committing of the sin as it is the creation of you're committing golf the sin is not ugly, because it is hatched and his action may not be described as such.
Okay, Is this clear? Because this is one of the problematic ones, just be careful the sort of alert to some of the bigger statements.
And then he says the Toba
the top of the public is from seeing the abundance of their good deeds for this leads to three things
the nine in the favor of is concealment and the further you know, public, and those are not our public, by the way. He's talking about people that are there that they are not repenting from sin to begin with.
but they're, you know, so the lowest out of the three groups that he talks about here. They're returning from righteousness, but very tempting from self righteousness for their repenting from seeing the righteousness, seeing the abundance of their deeds. Because seeing the abundance of your good deeds, or seeing your own best polytunnel, three bad things, consequences,
assented to what in hell? Are we ever Hakata law? What is similar
to the other law?
So to hold no to Central inherent means that he was denied a favor of his concealment and differ. If you are seeing that you're doing so much, then you're not seeing all of it, all of them which he had covered you up. Every time he covered you up, you're not seeing this, you're not seeing that he covered your bad songs, that if he revealed your bad thoughts, you will look you know, so ugly, if he had allowed the Euro, your bad qualities to manifest in a physical form, you will not be able to look at yourself in the mirror
because of the algorithms and he can see all of this. All of your craft qualities all of
yourself can see pride and arrogance and weakness and, you know, treachery can be competitiveness and all of these things, he can see you, and He will not let them manifest that you have the manifested in a physical form, you would have run away from your image in the mirror.
So, don't you think that's what you're doing so much? Because he can see a lot more that is worse. covered, you can then the other problem that this leads to is, what is why do we have a happy hour? What do
you feel, you know, you have done this and this and that. And when you go back and forth, and the you know, you know, how many armors I may need and stuff like that. So you then that, eventually you're saying this, and you're boasting about this in front of people. But even if you have the wisdom, and the intelligence, because now people are humble, because they're humble. Many humble people are humble, because they're intelligent, they're socially smart, and they're socially smart, could be humble. And that is not confidence.
It is socially smart to be humble.
But that is not to humbleness, in fact, that the scholars said that once you thought you're humble, you're humble.
It's true. You thought you're humble, because you must have thought that you are here. And that you humble yourself to the people. You're humble to yourself to this poor guy, for this ignorant guy got the very, The very thought that
that is basically the supremacy of the smart, this you know, so it is
you feel superior, but you are humbling yourself.
humble people do not see themselves superior to begin with this think of themselves as humble anyway, but as a different issue that Peruvians would have.
But even if you're smart enough to not show this arrogance, or not to boast about your but to be to be sort of mindful of your good deeds, or to feel them or to basically
feel their abundance.
That is saying to a lot I have I am entitled,
you know, I haven't title to reward. That is the structure. Because that's arrogance in front of Allah subhanaw taala, you will not be entitled, because whatever good deeds that you have, you know, put your eyesight in the scale. And all of your prayers today. For Leo here on the other side,
can see who's excited.
then the third problem that that feeding the abundance of your leads will cause is an estate grow, you have to see yourself a title.
And then you are able
And then the last one is feeling independence, which is the essence of tyranny, tyranny against the law
and transgression, which is the essence of therapy and transcription against the law. You feel independent meaning, you know, the opposite of the Hadees then you have put a political agenda for the army.
So you said that you're a beautiful paradise, in exchange for his deeds of the center. Even your messenger of Allah He said even
except the philosopher father
is still just mercy on me or envelops me
in his mercy. So this person who's seen the abundance of his good deeds, he thinks that he would put urban you know, carrying it
in exchange for his good deeds and that the Spirit
then delegate to outside minister grandma sailor Wilder on Verizon, as a unit would have to say you even have a year. What is the selling of coffee on the turnover of the intermediate seekers outside
The middle intermediate seekers
is from belittling the sin for this is the essence of audacious rebellion and hardiness and subsequently slipping into complete desertion. complete separation from Allah,
that there isn't the point here that pain points out, he says that some people may think that he should have switched the order, because the public are lower than the intermediate seekers. And it would be expected, it would be expected, the public
are repenting from belittling their sins, and the intermediate seekers are reinventing from
seeing the abundance of the righteousness, because they are hiding. So they are there.
But he says no, it is in
the order of the shift is correct,
because it is the power seekers who receive the abundance of their goodies. And once you move up, you will see you will be more aware of your sins
than your good deeds. And then your repentance will be from belittling the same.
That you have become aware of like it is like
like when you when you become more insightful, then there will be many doors, many doors will open to you to basically look into your heart and look into your qualities and look into your behavior and look into the past, you know, look at the past and how we you may have treated this or the poor parents or some spouse or somebody in the past.
It is after you have moved from this lower state,
the lower state of the abundance of good deeds, now the abundance of good deeds and we're not belittling the importance of good deeds, but the abundance of good deeds and then after you have repented from feeling the abundance of the yoga needs, now you will be able to recognize your sense you will rise to become an intermediate seeker and now you will be able to see the multitudes of your sins and see different shades of yourself. And now you need to repent from belittling yourself or from attempting to delivery or sales or patting yourself on the shoulder and saying that you know it was just minor you know it was just this. So that is the founder of anon soft or the intermediate
seekers of the last one. Because some severe drug thing that we had earlier dark in the south, we will feel more America we can deal with it in a sort
of a select few Casa
is from wasting time for it leads to forget the deficiency and extinguishes the light of watchfulness and spoils the spring of comparatives.
That's Keep in mind, he's not talking about wasting time, like we think of wasting time.
You think how do you what is wasting time for us? wasting time is being idle, or doing trivial things, or play an amusement. He's talking about wasting time, any time when you're not in the gym. In when you're not together with a loss of karma Tyler is a time waster. Those of those are the people who did the abundance of good deeds and they repented from seeing the good deeds and they moved up to you know, recognition of the bad deeds and they repented from the deeds. And now we are the select few of the repenting from any time wasted without this together and this would have loved anytime you be feel distant anytime the mother remembers, and they don't have to suffer of the value
or the purity of the the jury of their presidents who have lost their feeling of the presence of a loss of either their feeling of his presence and their watchfulness. Anytime. Love is a time wasted and it leads to deficiency.
They dropped their palm drops, and it puts out the light of watchfulness of what our cover
The script of companionship companionship with a BA.
And then he said, what I think more Mako COVID, he is not willing to have a look at men men do not have the spatial Elba is not finalized except that by repenting from anything you save the true one.
So Maria to widen, that he didn't get toga, and then observing the defect in that tree, perhaps
some October to mid rokeya, typically, and very tempting from this observance.
So, we're and this is a little ambiguous. But
this goes back to the his concept of perceptual annihilation.
He's telling you that you would return to from any thing, desire, action, that is not for
me, that was not, you know,
with Allah, it is not just for why it is also with over here for our live with Allah, all the time. And then
elbow will not be completed from anything short of this from being foreign law, and with luck.
after you have repented from this, you must observe the deficiency in your repentance. And then he must return from your observation of a deficiency of your repentance, which will make it a you know, perpetual reinterprets because observing
that, when you say I, when you say observing the deficiency in your repentance,
now, you're still aware of yourself and your actions.
Right? You're, you're still attributing something to yourself, which is the observation, half the deficiency, heavier reflectance. That's fair to say that the ultimate
pursuit is the annihilation of the perception of identity of the self, where you're not watching any of your actions, because you're watching any of your action will take away from you're beholding a lot of his actions.
You're attributing this observation to yourself.
Here here, you're attributing the observation of the deficiency in your repentance to yourself and the app, this attribution per se takes away from your,
the purity of your thought heat, which is when you
that's how to what to behold, fully aligned his actions. Because your own stuff there, you recognize that you're present.
But you're almost nothing and we serve the financial we did talk about this issue and we will come back and talk about the future and shall learn in some detail. The issue of
dilation of desires, should be our relation in perception
in existence or existential, which is the type of validation but even for those who will need to be qualified. We will talk about, you know, what, what is meant by financials when we come back to
the topic of financials.
