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

Plus farmers are allowed

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

to proceed

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

solo Today we will have doubled basura the chapter on insight

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

from unnecessary in and from lambda we will have

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

the cathode ray or the chapter on those who are not eligible to receive the care.

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

So first the bubble we'll see another chapter on insight and that is the 54th station out of 100 stations we are up to 54 now

00:00:43--> 00:00:48

and this is the segment on the valleys. And chef Rahim Allah

00:00:49--> 00:01:10

Allah said, Baba basura para la la palma de servicio de la jolla, la Sierra sirotkin avani Allah Almighty said say this is my way I invite to Allah with inside tada basura with inside I am those who follow me and those who follow me.

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

So Alba Sierra

00:01:18--> 00:01:24

and you will notice as I said before, you will notice that the concepts do overlap

00:01:25--> 00:01:33

the 100 stations concepts and the 100 stations do overlap, but it is never a complete overlap.

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

In other words,

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

you may hear things that are familiar because we may have talked about them in the chapter of the fact called reflection for instance, you may hear things that are familiar next time when we talk about rasa

00:01:52--> 00:01:56

which is spiritual astuteness you know, to be able to

00:01:57--> 00:02:31

have like the power of good prediction, the spiritual power of good prediction, good, tearing things apart and so on. And you may hear you may have heard last time some things that are familiar in the chapter of Heckman wisdom, because they are interrelated, because they overlap. But the thing that is important to point out is that this overlap is never complete. And each one of those concepts does shed a different light on

00:02:32--> 00:03:04

a somewhat different concept. So we have to pay attention so that we can get the benefit out of the different perspective that each one of those stations gives us the greater insight and knowledge we can acquire by understanding each one of those stations. So bus era comes from and Buzzer Buzzer is your site basato means site, you know your eyesight is boss or

00:03:06--> 00:03:15

boss era is the basically tool with which you see which is your eyes. So,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

but the boss era is

00:03:20--> 00:03:49

is a little bit more than a buzzer. But Sierra is basically the the inner sight, it is the in sight. Inner sight is the side that sees through the outer surface. The enter site is the site that sees through the outer surface sees a little bit deeper than the outer surface. And people have different capacities of seeing inner meanings

00:03:50--> 00:04:16

of learning lessons from phenomena and incidents, events, things that may cease seem so ordinary, mundane routine to everyone else. You know, some people have this ability to see through the outer surface, and we will come back to to talk about it more. But generally speaking the basura

00:04:17--> 00:04:46

the difference between a basura and El buzzer, although they come from the same route, is that a buzzer is the eyesight that is the side that sees you know, the forms and the images, the shapes Albus era as the side that sees meanings beyond the forms the images, the shapes, you know, the mundane routine and events and so on the side that sees beyond that, so,

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

that is the bossier.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

When you see like, remember before when we talked about the different types of causes, and we talked about it

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

A material form of final causes, there are four different types of causes. And this is basically a philosophical logical classification, but that it is a valid classification.

00:05:13--> 00:05:24

Certainly, with some modifications, we don't accept the conclusions of the philosophers, even if sometimes, you know, we don't always accept the conclusions of the philosophers, even if we sometimes use

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

basically, their their vernacular, their lingo, their language. So

00:05:30--> 00:05:53

So when we say, you know, I remember when I did this one time, I'm like, you know, knocked on the, we're banging on the wall. And I said, that just doing this, you have four different causes, here, you have the material cause which is the wall itself, and, you know, the nature of the material of the wall, because had I banged on,

00:05:55--> 00:06:31

though, or water or like some other material, it would have not produced the same effect. So, you know, the fact that this is a wall is relevant, it is not irrelevant, it is a relevant fact, to the final outcome. So it's called the material cause, you know, my very banging like this is the efficient cause. Right? That's the efficient cause. But then we can come back and talk about, you know, the efficient cause, is it really, me? Or is it finally Allah?

00:06:32--> 00:07:23

Because even the energy that I'm producing here, and everything that that is happening here is by the creation of a law, not just the permission of Allah, don't we know that? Don't we know that? You know, it, you know, the armelle are not only permitted by a law they are created, by Allah created. So color includes creation, you know, color includes the knowledge of a lot of preceding knowledge of Allah, and it can include the whim of Allah, the mercy of Allah, it includes also the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. So it's not just that Allah allowed me to do this, everything that happened here, when I did this was created by Allah. So we can always come back and say, is the efficient

00:07:23--> 00:08:14

cause? I am ready? Am I really the efficient? Cause? Is my banking really the efficient cause? Certainly, I it is part of it, I am aware, at least, as far as I am responsible for it, I am part of it, at least as far as I'm responsible for it, and I am responsible for my actions. And it was a willful action because I could have the system before you know, the action I had the ability to this is super seated by laws, ability. But But anyway, so consider that this is the efficient cause, the material cause and then we talked about the formal cause, right, and we said the formal cause is what the fact that banging on the wall produces that effect.

00:08:15--> 00:08:25

The very fact that that formula, you know, that law, that universal law, the universal order that a law created the line calculated in this universe,

00:08:27--> 00:08:54

you know, the whether it is like physics, chemistry, whatever, the fact that you know, when you add h2 to Oh, the producers, h2o water, and, you know, who said that this would would happen this way? Who said that when you bang on the wall, they produces this effect, but if you bend on your hand, it produces a different effect or

00:08:56--> 00:09:16

on powder, water, this is different favorites in the form of cause. Okay, so then people who have bizarre, people who are bizarre, they may not pay attention to any of this stuff, they just see like someone banging on the wall. And that's it. They saw banging on the wall that's that says there as limited to that.

00:09:17--> 00:09:48

Be people who are a little bit more intellectual, they will look deeper into the sort of the efficient cause and the formal cause and, you know, someone who had studied physics will be able to tell you more, a lot more about the various phenomena around you. That's why physics is very intriguing and very exciting to study, because it tells you a lot more about the very basic phenomena that happen around you.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

And so so if you can you can imagine someone who has a PhD in physics will be one that will see a lot more than we see in

00:10:00--> 00:10:54

You know, the things, whatever things happening around us. So we'll see a lot more. But they they are limited to the at the end of it, they are limited to what the formal cause, which is the law, but they don't ever look at the final cause who created that law? You know, where did it come from? And and, you know, the important thing that they never look at is why. So they can only examine how that's the former cause, how, how does it happen? Why does it happen? It's, it seems to be all of it seems to be very end oriented. Everything seems to be very end oriented. And they fail to see why. Even though the philosophers, ancient philosophers have always recognized that there has to be a why

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

here, you know, there's got to be a why everything is basically

00:11:02--> 00:11:27

moving. Aristotle for instance, that everything is moving in wonderment of the final cause. So it has to be a why the end the you know, the meaning. The tell us that has to be the witches theological argument. The tell us the meaning the end, there has to be a why they don't look at this. They don't examine this. You don't do any of this stuff without Basia.

00:11:28--> 00:11:43

That is why Allah seven sort of Roman Well, I can accept an SLA Allah moon Yamanaka mineral hierarchy, dounia will not fly tomorrow. But most of the people know not. He said they don't know anything. They know not, you know.

00:11:44--> 00:12:08

But then he said the Alamo. And that's the beauty of the parameters like so lay on the moon any other moon it seems contradictory, but he wants to study that whatever it is that they know is basically worthless lie on the moon. They don't know. They know and then the present like an accident I see that most people don't know that's it for the stop the AI actually ends

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

and then it says yeah, and I'm one of

00:12:13--> 00:12:20

the you know, the exterior of the life of this world. Well, Hamada ferati homograph Iran but they are concerning. And Farah which means what

00:12:22--> 00:12:29

the final one and I think that means the final word. And it is not a coincidence that it means the final one

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

final the you know, that's the end

00:12:34--> 00:12:42

regarding the end, ultimate and they are completely Hitler's home coffee dude.

00:12:46--> 00:13:03

And then Allah subhanaw taala also call them blind. Because if they if you're really distracted by the efficient and material and the formal cause even the formal cause even if you are you have a PhD in physics, but you're the but they're you stop, you know,

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

for many people for you know, they

00:13:09--> 00:13:25

they are oblivious to all the causes, they're just they see someone banging that's it. But if you have a PhD in physics, you may be a little bit better. But keep in mind the believer who sees that everything comes from Allah subhanaw taala

00:13:26--> 00:13:49

no better than the person who has a PhD in physics because he is he was able to see through all of these even if he's not seeing the details of you know, formal cause and he doesn't know about the details of things but he's able to see that there is a final cause there is a meaning behind all of this purpose behind all of this

00:13:51--> 00:13:57

but a lot of describe them as as blind when he when I lost seven sort of had offered me a zero for the particular loan Polonius

00:13:59--> 00:14:11

is known to be half a lotta a bizarre malaking Dharma kulula T for pseudo have the route travelled through the earth have enough travel and travel is important is

00:14:12--> 00:14:31

Allah subhanaw taala is telling us here you want to walk around move around like travel see you know pay attention while you're doing this pay attention have the enough travel for tycoon at home Colonia Tirana Bay and then they would have hearts with which they Intuit with which they understand or Intuit

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

globally are gonna be here however only a small number and if they did not even travel, they wouldn't be here. I mean if they did not travel and see things firsthand, you know didn't hear about them. felonious Moana visa for in Tama absorbed for certainly it is not the eyes that get blinded. But what I can tell my credibility for sure but the hearts in the chest that get the that are blown.

00:15:01--> 00:15:18

Certainly the eyes get blind as well, you know, but he the wireless Matata is saying that the heart, it's not the eyes that get blind, that it's the hearts that get blind. He's saying that the blindness of the eyes compared to the blindness of the heart

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

is is completely

00:15:22--> 00:16:04

you know, negligible. I mean, so what if someone can see with their eyes, when they can see what their hearts what what will they miss out on, you know some things in the donia certainly some of the aesthetics that they will miss out on and in the dunya and so on. But that's it. But if they are not blind in their hearts, they did not miss out on anything, because eventually in the Hereafter, and keep in mind that when our last Renata speaks in this language, and he says that they don't know they are not blind, this is all true. Because if your heart is not blind and he did not miss out on the Hereafter, you did not miss out on eternity. If you missed out on the duty and many things in

00:16:04--> 00:16:40

the dunya you did not miss out on much. Because like we always said mathematically divide anything by eternity and the Z The result is what? Zero so you did not miss out on anything in this case because a zero because we're doing a zero divide divide the divide 70 years that you will live in the dunya by eternity, the result is zero you will live 200 years divided by eternity zero you live 1000 years, the likes a little divided by eternity zero

00:16:41--> 00:16:55

okay. So in this case, that is what bus the bus era is about bus era is about the inner side, it is about the side that sees through the outer surface is about the side that basically detects the inner meaning.

00:16:57--> 00:17:33

And that is the most important type of site that we should have. And then the safe haven law that said alpha 02 Manuka Lou came in and Hira salata Raja insight is that we trade zeal of bewilderment. It is of three levels. Alba Sierra to my higher insight is what is that which rids you of the world they're meant. And that's one of the definitions they gave to Basilan. One of the definitions of the giftable Sierra is that, that whatever that gets you

00:17:34--> 00:18:02

from, you know, out of the darkness into the light, you know, you're lost, you're bewildered, you're confused, until you have a Sierra. And once you have bus era, then you're not lost anymore, you're not confused anymore, you could see through things you could see the meanings behind the outer surface, and so on. But there are certainly many definitions of basura. And as long as you understand the concept and you understand

00:18:04--> 00:18:17

the gist of it, then you should be able to appreciate the different definitions the Messiah had given to Napoleon, for instance, ragamala sisel basura nordonia lowfield.

00:18:18--> 00:18:40

It is a light that Allah subhanaw taala throws into someone's heart, or places into someone's heart, by which they can see the truth with which Allah subhanaw taala had sent His messengers, they can recognize the truth with which our last part Allah sent His messengers. I would say that, you know, there is a particular verse that is very beautiful in sort of an arm

00:18:42--> 00:19:27

in which Allah subhanaw taala said, and I think of you if you if you can apply basura to this verse, he could really figure out what the Sierra in different realms and in different regards and in different respects, means a last minute Allison Serato Amata met Kelly met Rob de casa de la mobility Karima to semiological baton met Kelly met Rob Baker surburban ardleigh dhamaka dedicated to security what does that mean without muckety muck Robic, the word of your Lord has been fulfilled. So because in truth without law and justice, and the Justice lamp, nobody really came out and no one would offer it. No one would ever alter his words. What was semiology him and he is the

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

old hearing the old No.

00:19:31--> 00:19:57

You know, Kenny metoda because everything around you. Everything around us are the all of the things around you are manifestations of the names of your Lord, the manifestations of glory and rigor, the manifestations of compassion and mercy, manifestation of knowledge, the manifestations of hikmah you know, all the Hikmah around you all the magnificence that you see around you in this universe. These are the manifestations of the designer, the creator, the maker

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

of all of this

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

So everything around you are just are just manifestations of his attributes. So

00:20:06--> 00:20:39

they are all by his words, you know, gunfire qu and B and it is and, and the word of Allah subhanaw taala. There are two different types of words of Allah subhanaw taala. There are the statements of Allah. That's why Allah said without getting better and bigger and the word of your Lord has been fulfilled. So the karma that subcon refers to his statements, his statements are all true. While Adler injustice refers to his decrees, his decrees are all just, and all orderly.

00:20:40--> 00:20:51

That what what are the differences between the statements and decrees? And how can we have basura in his statements and his decrees, because his statements and his decrees is pretty much everything, that's, that's everything

00:20:53--> 00:21:05

other than Him has agenda, but you know, there is no difference between his words, and him, there is a difference between the creation and him, but his word is off him.

00:21:07--> 00:21:24

So how do we have insight into the statements? What this what are the statements of Allah? What are the statements of Allah about? He tells us about the unseen, he tells us about ourselves, he tells us about this universe, that is seen and the unseen. You know, he knows about puzzles about these things.

00:21:25--> 00:21:35

He told us, that his serpent in truth, he tells us about these things in truth. So when it comes to the universe, whatever he tells us about the universe, then we accept it.

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

And

00:21:38--> 00:22:25

whatever, and we look for more details, and we could look for you could look for more details, it all those things about the universe, but we could look for more of the details, if it is about the seen universe, she had another guy, but when he tells us about the unseen when he tells us about himself, when he tells us about his names and attributes, when he tells us about the jinn and the dinar, then we will just have to completely accept whatever he tells us, and or what you know. And whatever his messengers tell us about, you know, the unseen, about himself about the unseen, we just accepted

00:22:26--> 00:22:54

may while maintaining his transcendence while maintaining his transcendence, but there is no real benefit in further investigating the unseen by the intellect, because it does not have that capacity, it does not have that potency. Remember, do you remember the philosopher who's you know, remember the philosopher who said that, you know, the intellect, philosophy is really not

00:22:55--> 00:23:41

the intellect is not qualified. And philosophy is not basically worthwhile in the area of metaphysics. You know, who's that? Yeah. Emmanuel. Kant, is the one who said, In the period of the Critique of Pure Reason, and Emmanuel, Kant is not just any simple philosopher, is that he's considered the main philosopher in the last 200 years, the greatest philosopher in the last 200 years. And he said, you know, forever we have been talking about metaphysics, and, you know, and and one of the things keep in mind that he was a religious, and he was particularly pious in his practice of religion. He was a pious Christian, Emanuel calm. So he said, that we keep on talking

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

about all of this,

00:23:44--> 00:23:59

do we is the mind is the mp3 really equipped to examine the unseen, to investigate the unseen, the, you know, the metaphysical? And he said, that is not adequate. And that's exactly what you know.

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

That's exactly what the embeddings have been saying.

00:24:04--> 00:24:19

You know, the mind just stop. It is, you know, and, you know, I shouldn't say that somebody is the author is, in general, stop the mind is, is and this is this is beyond the mind, you can't really, basically

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

reason about this because it's beyond reason.

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

Just accept it. But accept it while maintaining the transcendence of a loss of product accepted while maintaining the transcendence of a lion. That is also important, accepted while maintaining because sometimes, people use language that could hurt to that concept, the concept of maintaining that transcendence of Allah, we're accepting it, because the language itself, you know, the language itself is incapable of describing something that is completely beyond our imagination, but a lot did use that language.

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

to basically relate to us, to introduce himself to us, to make us know about him, Allah did use that language. So, we just accept what he told us, you know, while maintaining his transcendence, and that we will never be able to imagine what he is like, because he just you just care, you just care

00:25:22--> 00:25:25

what is exactly like because you just care.

00:25:27--> 00:26:00

So, that is the the way to basura with regard to the unseen is just like the complete acceptance while maintaining the transcendence of the Lord, the you know, at 10 Z, while maintaining 10 Z, keep the 10 z in mind all the time, avoid any conceptualization, avoid any, like forming of images, about the unseen in your mind, because whatever images you have you form in your mind about the unseen, they're not true. They're not real, you know, just just

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

accept and move on.

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

But it is acceptance for our benefit is it is not acceptance, like just accept the letters, you know

00:26:13--> 00:26:19

pieroni como la then follow me so that allow me love you acceptable I would love us

00:26:21--> 00:26:30

not just the others, except that he will, in fact love us if we follow His Messenger Salalah Adios.

00:26:32--> 00:26:47

Then, so that is basically bus era with regard to the unseen. One is, and with regards to the world around us, the universe around us, we could look for some details or good reason about things and we could look for

00:26:49--> 00:27:04

you know, more could learn more about history and things like that. So because we do have the ability to do that, but whatever a lot lenses, whatever Allah tells us, we just accept it, because it is true.

00:27:06--> 00:27:24

Then what about the other word of Allah? subhanaw taala these are the statements of Allah, his words are two types, his statements and his decrees subcon about the statements in truth. But what about his decrees the decrees cannot be or cannot be described as

00:27:26--> 00:27:45

set forth? Not set? Right? These are commands. These, you know, so what about the decklid the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala there, there are two different types. There, there are there are the universal decrees that's called the universal order.

00:27:46--> 00:28:00

The laws of the universe, the law inculcated in this universe, and the things that happen to you that you are not basically in control of and that you are not demanded to do anything about or to abstain from anything,

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

you get sick, you know, it's not your fault.

00:28:06--> 00:28:16

We just like by not are doing it. So we're not demanded to do anything about these things, or to abstain from anything

00:28:18--> 00:28:40

and certainly the universal order. So, when it comes to the universal order of Allah subhanaw taala basura in this regard is basically to be it is whatever we talked about before, when it comes to the universal order to be to have the intuition to have the capacity

00:28:42--> 00:28:49

and the interest, to see through the outer surface, to see through the outer surface and to

00:28:51--> 00:29:10

examine the meanings and to focus on the meanings, the end tell us behind the outer surface and not just be limited to the formal cause or the efficient material cause but look for the final cause. So that is people to proceed and disregard.

00:29:12--> 00:29:37

And when it comes to the universal order, or also examination of the form of cause as part of the procedure, exploration, you know, and then that is what the Muslims realized that it does actually help you to, to be more insightful of the final cause to have more knowledge about the formal cause. And

00:29:39--> 00:29:43

the disagreement over this is a huge disagreement in the maxilla having a bed

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

variably It is these the other man the knowledgeable ones, the ones endowed with knowledge. The scholars are the ones who will fear a lot of most, and certainly the the sort of the Orthodox understanding of this is

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

It is the scholars of the deen. But I would argue that it is not limited to the scholars of the DEA, certainly the sky, the the people that are endowed with different types of knowledge, the more knowledge you have, if you're thoughtful, if you're thoughtful, the more knowledge you have, the more

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

it will lead you to face. And, and certainly, you know, some of the Einstein believed in God,

00:30:31--> 00:30:51

you know, whatever, when he was practicing or not whatever he practiced, he may not be your traditional Jewish person that, you know that you meet in the street, but but he did, he did believe that, you know, no, this is this. This is huge. There is something behind this, there's something beyond that.

00:30:53--> 00:31:03

So, it does lead you to face and even even philosophy, as we said before, we quoted Francis Bacon before about, you know, the philosophy

00:31:04--> 00:31:09

leads someone away from faith and much more philosophy brings them about back to face.

00:31:11--> 00:31:41

So an anachronism and I read it or a man who it is not limited to the scholars of the dean, but certainly the scholars of the dean, are the core of this, you know, it applies primarily to the scholars of the dean. But it also includes people who are endowed with different types of knowledge. So exploration, exploration. And then then comes the issue of this exploration, should we be just exploring physics and math and so on. And that's usually that is the problem in the

00:31:42--> 00:32:32

Islamic awakening in general, is that the focus was on exploration and when it comes to those hardcore sciences, and we neglect the importance of humanities, the importance of psychology, the importance of sociology, the importance of anthropology, the importance of politics, the importance of whatever else other than just hardcore sciences, math and physics, and so on and so forth. No exploration is not limited to those hardcore sciences, we also need to explore whatever he the the collective human heritage in those sciences, certainly, we will use our filters, we're always using our filters. But keep in mind that our filters are not that restrictive. Our filters are not that

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

restricted. The knowledge of the revelation is not that restrictive. The knowledge of revelation gave us like some guidelines, you know, some signposts, some

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

barricades on the sides of the road so that you don't drift away so that you don't fall off

00:32:51--> 00:33:23

the cliff. Yeah, it did give a give us some guidance, but it lives, there's so much room for exploration, it left us so much room, to explore the world around us, even to explore ourselves to know more about ourselves, you know, part of this is introspection, you know, part of basura is introspection. So he has a you we will be guided by the knowledge of the revelation. But it does not mean that it restricted us from further exploration. And that is extremely important that that's like

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

a main

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

failure of the the sort of not certainly everyone but certainly the predominant

00:33:36--> 00:33:56

direction that or atmosphere. Within the Islamic awakening, the blessing Islamic awakening of the last one century, people thought that we don't need, you know, to learn much about humanities, we just need to learn about, you know, physics and chemistry, you know, like power

00:33:58--> 00:34:30

and the, you know, technology and things of that nature. But we don't need to know much about humanities it is incorrect, and it hurts us so much. So exploration in includes all of this, and basura develops with further exploration into all of those realms while maintaining you know, what, why have been observant of and cognizant of the guidelines provided to us in the revelation. And now the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala were to include in addition to the universe in order that we need to explore

00:34:31--> 00:34:34

the crease of Allah subhanaw taala will also include

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

his father, you know, whatever the freedom, the destiny, and and we said before that basura in this regard is what acceptance with gratitude. And I chose the word that I chose to say acceptance with gratitude, not just with submission, because that is the ultimate we'll see if the ultimate will see it is that you have gratitude for life and everything. As at the moment how do we stay blessed?

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

We talked about it in that which he was holds you have as much gratitude for him in you know

00:35:09--> 00:35:39

for that which he withholds just as much as for that which he gives in grants because you don't know what is better for you was anti corrosion or hydroelectric, you made this like a thing and and there is there in there is so much good for you so Basia when it comes to Kalamata big the word of your Lord concerning the decrees the destinies is to have complete acceptance with gratitude all the time and be grateful

00:35:40--> 00:36:29

to Allah for what he does. So that is basically the Sierra in Kalamata law without getting muddled up because of the parabola, Lambada radiculopathy he owes me a lot in the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and justice, there is no alteration no one will alter his words was not even he is the old hearing goal seer, the vide this and it is in the document that I sent you divide this into, you know, what the kalama is, what the word of allies his statements are all true, his decrees are all just an orderly his statements are about the seen and the unseen, as decrees are about destiny universal over there. And if you divide this and

00:36:32--> 00:36:41

and reflect on each one of those categories, and how to develop the Sierra and each one of those categories, you will have basura in all of those different realms.

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

Then the shapes adonijah to order and inshallah we will not be late because

00:36:50--> 00:37:11

many of these things we have gone over before many of these concepts we have gone over before but we said that the overlap does not mean it's complete overlap. There are certain differences between all of those stations, but she extended the data to ooda and tala Nakamura Mr. Burton he does Shariati guru on high in in LA you have our people have

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

photography and happy and tell us that we are Pina will talk about that over

00:37:19--> 00:38:09

the first level and time and time a bit of history RTS in in law you have our people is to know that the reported instructions of Siri are come from certain sources and have guaranteed consequences come from certain sources of guaranteed consequences for that I'm unhappy and tell us that we subpoena we'll talk about better move IRA. Thus you satisfy the rights by finding genuine pleasure in them. And being fiercely fiercely protective of them. Just so you satisfy the so you see that the instructions surely are the first level is usually about the Sharia. Because the the shave is a compliant Sharia compliant Sufi, he is a Sunni Sufi. So he starts always the first level with the

00:38:09--> 00:38:39

foundation. If you don't have that foundation, if you are not compliant with the knowledge of Sharia, then don't follow me. You gotta start here. And then to follow me to the second level to follow me to the third level, you got to be established first in the first level, you've got to have the knowledge of Saudi Arabia, you've got to comply to conform to the knowledge of Sharia, if you're not going to be with me and you're here, you know, stop, move away, just like minding your own business don't come

00:38:40--> 00:39:21

You know, our path as Junaid said, is a path of compliance, which is a path of knowledge. Whoever is not interested in the knowledge of theory and do not does not want to comply with a knowledge of Sharia should not follow us. She should not be with us. He's not from us. So that's why she follows starts and that is an old and the first level by is about the Sharia and the knowledge of Sharia. And he says that this knowledge comes from certain sources, like be very confident about this came from a messenger that established his truthfulness, you know, beyond any reasonable doubt. You know,

00:39:22--> 00:39:30

this came from a messenger who established this truthfulness beyond any reasonable doubt. So be certain of what you have

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

between your hands here. And and they have guaranteed consequences, the consequences that worldwide worldwide the promises and the warnings of Allah subhanaw taala are all guaranteed. You know, whatever he worthy, you've been told of whatever punishment you've been told, these are guaranteed things. So be aware of that. And if you know that this is they come from certain sources and they have guaranteed consequences.

00:40:02--> 00:40:35

He Remember we said yesterday when it comes to the dounia there is nothing guaranteed when Kennedy The larger the agenda level manager or the memory for Madonna, Madonna Muslim or whatever wants the quick passing life of this world that janela houfy have Manisha luminary we will advance them wherever we please to whomever we please no guarantees he wanted adonia we will give it to you, but there are no guarantees we may not you know, so, we will give to whomever we please whatever we please but when it comes to the hereafter on our other etherdelta solders yeah

00:40:37--> 00:40:42

okay, ganas Are you home, my school and whatever once the year after and does the works that are

00:40:44--> 00:40:47

basically the suit that pursuit

00:40:48--> 00:41:12

or the desire for the hereafter for those people their work, their effort will be accepted with gratitude will be rewarded with gratitude will be rewarded with gratitude, guaranteed no question about it. So, he says that the these are guaranteed consequences if you know this, then you see Futterman happy and happiness

00:41:14--> 00:41:24

does he says you have to satisfy the rights of these instructions by finding genuine pleasure in them finding genuine pleasure in them

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

that

00:41:29--> 00:41:58

that is something that you develop over time, what are the energy how to feed the unknown. So, when a lot of monarchs Indian and those who strive in our cause, we shall guide them to our past that is something that you develop over time, but keep in mind, you have it you already have if you came here, there is something you know that that he that you find comfort in listening to, you know, the moment What are we in? Pi, Kodama, Hola.

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

If you are, if you're, you already have a lot of this pleasure, love this sweetness, you have it, we have different degrees of we have different degrees of it. But the believer is the practicing believers, they do have some of it. That is why it is it is even just like scientifically proven, that faithful people have better health, you know, they live long, longer, and they have better health and so on and so forth. So, there you are giving some of that for sure. But there is more to get, there is more to be had.

00:42:41--> 00:43:02

By getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala we'll talk about Aveda and to be fiercely protective of them, fiercely protective of the these instructions, the bounds of Allah, the Hadoop of Allah or vertical when you hold them for higher level and whoever honors and glorifies.

00:43:03--> 00:43:50

venerates, the hollow metal of Allah, the sacred bounds of Allah, it will be good for him before his Lord, then that. So after that you have established the importance of the knowledge of God on the importance of compliance with this red AR, then he moves on. But when he moves on, and whatever he says, may sound that, you know to basically take you away No, he's not taking you away from compliance. He's telling you about more that you can have. He's not taken away from you taking you away from compliance. He's not being mystic like in bad mysticism. He is basically alerting you to the importance of more devotion, you're compliant. Now, I want you to be more devoted, you know,

00:43:50--> 00:44:25

work on you know, the the final qualifier, the ultimate qualifier, which is devotion. Remember yesterday, we said what we said someone who was born in Mecca and goes to the heart of a couple of prayers a week will be like your prayers in terms of reward for a few years. Right. If he prays what, you know, twice a weekend hard on me, you're done. You know, you can't compete. But, but is that is that could that really be true? No, we said that the the the ultimate factor here

00:44:27--> 00:44:47

that will define people's rankings will be devotion, because the reward for devotion multiplication for devotion is not limited by numbers Is it is it limited by numbers 100,000 prayers, you know, or or 1000 prayers or 500 prayers, it is not limited by number. So devotion

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

a lot of rewards for this without reckoning without without numbers.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

So, now he when he goes to the second or third level, the

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

Is what he's trying to do now that you are compliant, try to be more devoted and more sincere. He says what that other data 230 and Tasha

00:45:11--> 00:45:50

fee that happy with what he saw but what he did when he accidentally hit the ayatollah better what were if he just be he habla was okay at the end of the second level is to observe v that that Hyper V. Atlanta he is sabaton to observe the justice in the true ones and how is the truth or the true one which is Allah and to observe in the justice in the true ones guiding can misguidance whenever he guides is out of his favor and grace, whenever he misguide someone, it is out of His justice, it is out of His justice.

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

When Peter weenie acts me here is

00:45:54--> 00:46:26

his graciousness in his distribution, that we examine the variation in his distribution. He apportions things, you know, in ways that are that, that we do not comprehend sometimes, you know, that's why there are some people who have lack of understanding, you know, there is like a very bad proverb in Egyptian one, you had a little bit out there, he gives earrings to those who have no ears.

00:46:27--> 00:47:09

So when you like is basically at uncertainty, people say there's not meaning to that they don't understand they're not meaning to be the Fae, you know, or to be disrespectful towards Allah subhanaw taala but they're just like, people who are resentful about their shares their portions of the dounia you see someone who may not be as handsome as you, for instance, and they have a lot more money or they may not be that intelligent, and they have a lot more famous celebrity, or they may not be that knowledgeable. Like Ben said, you know, some of the people that get you know, that become a method holder, they have little knowledge and they become a method holder, they become you

00:47:09--> 00:47:10

know,

00:47:11--> 00:47:29

the most distinguish, distinguish the Imams and with little, certainly not gonna be that little but with, you know, much less knowledge that other people will have a lot more knowledge and no one knows anything about them. So when when you when you see things of that nature, you know,

00:47:31--> 00:48:19

don't become envious, don't become resentful, don't think because you know, you should not he apportions the the shares and the dernier in way as he pleases now as you please. And you must trust his wisdom, and he must trust his justice and accept that as a manifestation of His perfection and his glory. And you don't know what you know why this person became famous and you did not. And but then then the you know, to say that he gives earrings The one who has no ears is basically blasphemous, if you understand what that means. But certainly for people who don't understand people are not that thoughtful anyway, a lot of people are not that thoughtful. It can swallow it forgive.

00:48:21--> 00:49:06

But it is important to see what he said when he accidentally hear it that his graciousness and his distribution, not only his justice, but his graciousness, because he knows what he's doing. And he's gracious in his giving and his withholding. And you should always maintain that image of your Lord or that perception of your Lord, what why ENFP just be he had blood was and to be able to observe in his polling, just be fi just be in his polling hablar was the role of friendliness, which means here to observe friendliness in his polling, you know, he he pulls you towards him he brings you closer to him if he

00:49:10--> 00:49:32

if he does bring you closer to him if he allows you to stand before him and pray if he allows you to do something as good if he allows you to be kinder if he allows you to be more thoughtful, if he allows you to be more charitable, if he allows you to be if he brings you closer to him, he did it. It means that he desires

00:49:34--> 00:49:40

it means that he desires your neediness, he wants you closer to him because he desires your

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

your neediness.

00:49:43--> 00:49:48

So to be able to see in his pulling his friendliness

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

but the project was fairly thorough but Sierra tune and third level is inside the CRM to federal America.

00:50:01--> 00:50:03

to sabotage a Shara watan between

00:50:04--> 00:50:23

the third level is about Sierra is an insight that causes marivan gnosis to gush forth, and I did choose to use gnosis and sometimes, because when we talk about gnosis, Gnostics and so on It could sometimes be tricky, but I mean here by gnosis whatever the

00:50:24--> 00:50:34

the original definition of the word and the original definition of the word is the beneficial knowledge of the knowledge of the heart, the knowledge that produces the desired

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

effect

00:50:45--> 00:50:59

is the analogy that is a knowledge of the heart that produces the desired outcome that is beneficial that causes the fruits the you know, the trees of virtue in the heart to to bring forth their fruits.

00:51:01--> 00:51:10

Not every knowledge does that, you know, information per se would not do that. A gathering information collecting information memorizing

00:51:11--> 00:51:22

them, does not produce that will not produce that unless you have sincerity and devotion and you really wanted this information.

00:51:29--> 00:51:32

And here you want to benefit from this information before you

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

basically

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

use it for any other purpose.

00:51:41--> 00:51:46

So the fact that America causes an RFI or gnosis the Gosforth

00:51:48--> 00:52:08

what is that between a Shara and ratifies? The gestures rad ratifies the just gestures, gestures Shara usually Sufi terminology he talks about his aura his aura is different from a bada bada is the expression but a Shara is whatever it is that you cannot verbally express.

00:52:09--> 00:52:22

And inshallah sometimes it's not only that, whatever you cannot verbally express, for many people a shot is sufficient either they don't need a bar. So sometimes they

00:52:24--> 00:52:32

for the people who have this microphone for the live feed the Gnostics the people who have this Maratha

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

HR is sufficient for them. They don't need verbal expressions Jesus need gestures.

00:52:41--> 00:53:06

HR could also refer refer to internal feelings and internal conditions internal states that cannot be expressed you can't really tell the people about them he can sometimes the sweetness of faith will tell me more about the see if you talk to someone who is atheist for instance, well describe to me you know that sweetness you know what do you mean by this

00:53:08--> 00:53:27

you know, you they think that you're completely sort of the loo the there is i think it's it's it's all your happy it's probably because of neurotransmitters in chemistry, the chemistry of your brain is making you happier I don't know what you're talking about. So for some people I Bara

00:53:31--> 00:53:45

if they don't understand these things that I bought, I would not even make them understand that certain things are by experience. You have not seen FTP you have not experienced that you will not be able to appreciate

00:53:46--> 00:54:06

and that's fine. But it ratifies the gestures does not only mean that it means that whatever it is that whatever state that you're in, and whatever concept in whatever state, the Laws of Power tada bestows on you or an understanding or state or something.

00:54:08--> 00:54:42

Your bus era would ratify me in meaning it will grew meant grew meant, you know, make it make it in accordance with the sorry, on guru myth and anchor it in the heart, room it and anchor it in the heart. So it becomes a permanent state, not a transient one. So you could capture it. You know, you could capture this thought and anchored in the heart, you could capture this feeling and anchored and the heart you could capture this state and anchor it in the heart. And it's not any more transient, but rather

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

fixated in the heart. And then the final one is what we're torn between fear answer and yields. astuteness and terrassa is our next chapter in child law. Students that's the spiritual astuteness the power of

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

The the power of sound prediction

00:55:05--> 00:55:06

and

00:55:07--> 00:55:15

being able to tell people apart and and things and different phenomena.

00:55:17--> 00:55:27

So, that spiritual astuteness is what it means and we will discuss bourassa in detail next time in sha Allah. Therefore, we will stop here could only have us comfortable you

00:55:29--> 00:55:30

should stop
