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

Okay, he was from LA from LA so someone said a lot earlier Saviano da, da da da da to proceed. Today we are, we will continue on shall Marcus melodia or the section on the valleys. This is the sixth section and Manasa serene from the 51st the sixth station, because Manasa serene is 100 stations, every section is 10 stations.

00:00:30--> 00:00:48

So, we are currently doing the section on the valleys that are there and today is Station Number 56. And that is that the station of exaltation, or the chapter on exaltation. exaltation at the heart of the

00:00:51--> 00:01:14

Lima haven't heard a lot Allah said, Kerala, Jelena come letter June Allah para cada Allah azza wa jal and Allah Comdata Junaid Allahu Akbar Allah Almighty has said, What is the matter with you that you do not attribute do grantor to Allah or you do not attribute to Allah do grenzer

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

and then the CX

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

Hyper V momordica to lava mama de la

00:01:23--> 00:02:04

dee da Raja. He said exaltation is the recognition of his granddaughter while showing humidity before it and it is of three levels of the multifocal azama ca v m is the recognition of their recognition of a loss. greatness, a loss, Granger a loss glory, a loss majesty, that recognition. It is about recognition. At the end of the day, a theme is a transitive verb, right? But you have to understand that what you're doing is you're doing it only to your consciousness. You're doing it only to your perception. You don't elevate Allah subhana wa tada

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

to a higher end, right? You're not alone when you do leave.

00:02:11--> 00:02:19

That is exaltation. You're not actually elevating a lot to a higher rank. Who are you to elevate a lot you don't

00:02:21--> 00:02:43

only do this in your perception in your consciousness, and your behavior in your conduct, and your proclamation and your testimony. But you're not doing it to Allah. It's not like you're elevating the last pinata, because that would be the definition whether you read it in Arabic or English. But language is

00:02:44--> 00:03:00

you know, it's our human language we have to express, you know, devotion and matters in our human language. talim in this case is your recognition of a loss of Ummah, your recognition of a loss of greatness,

00:03:01--> 00:03:09

and allows majesty and glory. So that's why we use the word exaltation.

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

You will find that exaltation is often used in the

00:03:15--> 00:03:22

Quran and the Sunnah to translate this be your Subhana Allah Exalted be Allah

00:03:24--> 00:03:28

because there is some relationship between us behind tasleem

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

What is this test B?

00:03:34--> 00:03:46

That's B basically is to deem a blob of any deficiency, it is a testimony to the transcendence of Allah above any deficiency. It comes from

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

the three letter root seen bear

00:03:53--> 00:04:21

which means to basically move quickly or to float on top of the water to or to swim and is upon a law related to this Yes, to some extent it is because when you say some kind of law, you know, you will say some kind of law mousy phone. This will be usually translated as Glory be to Allah above what they describe or

00:04:23--> 00:04:45

it means that Allah is free of what they describe what they ascribe to him, Allah is free of what they ascribe to him. So it is to declare the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala to deem Allah above any perfection, see, you know, syba is the float above the surface of the water.

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

It has to be is the Mullah above any perfection

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

to the Mullah above any imperfection, so too, it is a testimony to His perfection and has transpired

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

So, hello. So, in this sense, this B is part of talim right. It is an element of Tallinn, it is an element of talim the exaltation of Allah subhanaw taala the recognition of the true greatness and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala is the de mela above any imperfection but talim in the sense is more encompassing comprehensive

00:05:30--> 00:05:35

than this be or this BIA has more encompassing and comprehensive than talim.

00:05:38--> 00:05:48

VM is more encompassing and comprehensive, because VM is not only about about declare, you know, declaring a law above any imperfection

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

It is about

00:05:52--> 00:06:14

your constant recognition in you know, and you're also that that will certainly show on your behavior your conduct your interactions with the last panel tada and your interactions with his symbols and those that Allah subhanaw taala loves and loves pinata also elevates or exalts.

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

So, limb is more general and more comprehensive than this beef in this sense, this is a declaration or a proclamation of Allah's perfection.

00:06:31--> 00:07:01

And it is part of Tallinn or to be in precisely his demon gala above any imperfection is to the Mullah above any imperfection. Whenever someone says something that you don't like, is a Subhana Allah, so hinting to the imperfection or to the flaw or to the incorrectness of the statement, whether it pertains to allow or not, you just say Subhan Allah

00:07:04--> 00:07:07

and whenever someone bothers us, you know,

00:07:08--> 00:07:19

you you also say some kind of love said the founder of the Communist Party, then sing the praises of your Lord than the of the sanctity

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

of marriage.

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

The exaltation is the recognition of his grams are

00:07:27--> 00:07:47

not as under the law why I'm showing humidity before before before the grams are over last pinata you show your humidity before the grantor and the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We will come back later and talk about how to have tanzeem.

00:07:49--> 00:08:25

But the shift here will describe what talim is about and then at the end inshallah we will talk about how to have 1000 because some people have irresistible, so it is sort of, they do find that in their heart, it is irresistible. They just that the majesty of Allah subhanaw taala is well established and their heart the glory, the majesty the greatness and some people have difficulty with us. And for for them, they need to grow it they need to develop it they need to grow it and

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

those are the people that we will need to basically address their needs, then the stock sell.

00:08:36--> 00:09:07

All of us need there is there is always room for a greater Tallinn, you know even if you find Tavi minear heart, there is always room for greater toffee. So the discussion at the end of this is not irrelevant to those people who have already because there's always room for greater theme. The concept of aggrandizement is not applicable to Allah subhanaw taala. Right. This concept is applicable to anyone else. You could certainly elevate anyone above their rank, there is always room

00:09:08--> 00:09:52

right? Because compared to our last one, or even the greatest of his creations, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Why is the concept of aggrandizement as applicable to the prophet SAW Selim with certainly and that would be most dangerous, because there is no room for the prophets of Salaam to go up. Except in crow except through or by encroaching on the divine because he is the greatest of creations and then at the aggrandizement of the prophets of Salaam would encroach on basically the domain of the Divine subhana wa Tada. So that is why it is a very delicate issue.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

But when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala that concept itself is not applicable. There is no such thing like

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

aggrandisement because it doesn't happen the you know, Allah subhanaw taala is the greatest being in every regard in every respect.

00:10:15--> 00:10:31

So, so there is always room for each and every one of us to have more thought dream of Allah subhanaw taala. So whether or not you find that out of him in your heart, we all need to grow it, to develop it more and more. And the more of him you have.

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

It is ultimately your way to your own survival to your own well being.

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

The theme of the last panel

00:10:42--> 00:11:09

as we will see here, the chef will mainly address here the concept of talim as it pertains to the vet of Allah which will be the third station to the essence of Allah to Allah Himself. And then the first station will be the concept of Tavi as it pertains to the armor of Allah, the commands of Allah. And the second level will be the concept of talim as it relates to the decrees of Allah up the law.

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

He says here without authority, it is a three levels of data through data, the memory on

00:11:18--> 00:11:35

the first level is the exaltation of the commands and prohibitions, woohoo. And that involves that Liu arada Vitara who's in Japan, that they are not compromised by unjustified concessions, while you are rather

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

than garden that they are not treated with excessive stringency

00:11:41--> 00:11:55

while you are enlightened to a hidden Olympiad, that they are not hinged on clauses that may weaken the compliance, compliance, conformity submission surrender.

00:11:57--> 00:12:15

So the first one I like our other Vitara Hussain joughin, the commands and the provisions of Allah when he received the commands in the provision of the provisions of a law that accompany automatic life of a high roller and he has a lot sense and sort of hand that is and whoever honors glory, honors, respects

00:12:16--> 00:12:43

the sanctity of a law that is better for him before his Lord with his Lord. So in Tallinn automata laws are done gelatos even have the camera and don't know any of Allah subhanaw taala the commands and prohibitions of Allah. Bashir here says that this happens when or you could realize this by not compromising them with unjustified concessions. Tara who's in Jefferson,

00:12:44--> 00:12:52

he did not just say but tacos with concessions, because concessions are beloved to Allah subhanaw taala as much as you know.

00:12:54--> 00:13:41

As much as strictness is beloved in certain cases, concessions also when they are parented, when they are justified when they are warranted when they are prescribed by Allah subhanaw taala are completely fine, and not only fine, they are beloved to Allah, Allah wants you to use his concessions as in the reports. So unlike all other articles in Japan, they are not compromised by unjustified concessions and those are the concessions that do not basically fulfill the criteria of legitimate concessions, as we said, as we talked about before, we talked about concessions before in detail, if you remember, like maybe 2025 weeks ago. So we will not repeat this.

00:13:44--> 00:14:36

Then the sheikh said what are you are involved in and they are not treated with excessive stringency because, you know, again, it is about moderation. You know, give Attica Nachman Martin Mazel Tov, as we've made you a moderate nation, it's a mighty nation in the middle. So it's about hitting the golden mean the middle between the two, you know, as we said, Every virtue is flanked by two vices. So, when you are in the middle, you are between the side of unjustified concessions, laxity, negligence, you know, indifference and the side of excessiveness, stringency or too much strictness, and you have to stay in the middle because Allah does not want to either side what I did in the

00:14:36--> 00:14:49

garden they are not treated with excessive stringency because ultimately excessive stringency will result in it may result in a dream but it will make you lose what

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

love

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

is where it where it went sour your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala you will be your worst

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

worship of Allah subhanaw taala will be more in this sort of

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

chaotic lobby. It's like the worship, you know, it's like slavery.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

Yes, we are the slaves of Allah.

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

But also we are

00:15:20--> 00:15:44

His loving creatures are loving creations and he is our beloved Lord and beloved caretaker Beloved. So that that balance is important and if you stay in the middle of between excessive you know become between conceptions unwarranted, and stringency that is excessive and shallow, you will be able to balance the two the theme and the love.

00:15:46--> 00:15:58

Then the sheikh said what I matter I listen to NPR they are not hinged on causes that may weaken the compliance they are not hinged on clauses that may weaken the compliance and people you know,

00:15:59--> 00:16:38

when you talk about clauses, and we will talk about Heckman and Reba usually the idea is the business of the aka the Hikmah is the business of people who are more spiritually oriented or people who are more intellectually oriented, less legally oriented, less technically oriented. And both groups can have their problems because one group will be consumed in technicality and their their their emphasis their focus the attention on the island, the effective cause behind every ruling may weaken their compliance

00:16:40--> 00:17:29

because they will always find not always but but they will often find the way is to not comply with the command because they will limit the scope of operation of the command wherever the IRA exists, you know, and 50 wise That is correct. You know, it is helped me a doormat ILO to the modern, you know, the hochma hinges on the idler or is hinged on dial. So, it exists whenever the idea exists and it does not exist whenever the island does not exist. The effective cause behind the prohibition is dial hombres haram because comedies intoxicant intoxication or soap, to be more precise, is the idea behind the prohibition of karma. If there is a liquid that does not cause if it tastes exactly

00:17:29--> 00:17:43

like come, you know, looks like hombre tastes like smells like everything like from but it does not result in intoxication that liquid is halaal to drink.

00:17:45--> 00:17:56

But once they it causes intoxication or causes so crocodile Hence, the you know the hareem applies. So,

00:17:57--> 00:18:34

so, but, but that that is an obvious example, but sometimes the eila is not particularly easily discernible. And then we say that this is the headline here such and then we make up our own islands and we can our compliance by making up islands that may not be the only is that sometimes one may have more than one and sometimes one Hawkman may have more than one. So, you presume that it only has one idol and then on the basis of that you

00:18:35--> 00:18:43

void the void the command because you know, if Tyler does not exist, you know, that one I like that you thought of.

00:18:44--> 00:19:09

So, it is it is basically your limited incomprehensive inquiry into the idle. But once you know the legitimate Motorhead families have identified the 11 Yes, certainly the hochma would be attached to dialer when dial exists the hochma exists when dialer does not exist, the hochma does not exist.

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

But sometimes also people limit this to very sort of the limit this

00:19:21--> 00:19:42

when they talk about they talk about technicalities, and sometimes they could be like some degree of separation between the eila and the hegman. Sometimes there is separation between the eila and the Hikmah. And you always want to keep them together

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

so that you are not like too technical about your approach to the Sharia. People are spiritually more inclined that they always talk about the old think of the Heckman and that is where many of the

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

Non Sunni sophies that that is where that is what hurt them. Because they, they, they think that Salam should basically strengthen your attachment to a liar bond with the last panel tada and

00:20:18--> 00:20:40

also keep you away from fracture and Moncure from obscenity and evil in general obscenity and evil in general. And if you are if you have a sweet relationship with Allah and you're afraid on your own from fracture Moncure wise you need to pray anymore. Those certainly are the very like,

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

like very deviant types.

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

The but to a lesser extent and that's an example just for exaggeration, but to a lesser extent also people who may

00:20:56--> 00:21:06

hinge the cam on head cam are all the rulings on their wisdom, they may fall into this

00:21:08--> 00:21:29

flaw or error of basically weakening their compliance was the outcome of Allah subhanaw taala because of the perceived the hekman it is perceived the Hekmat because it may not be all the Hikmah there may be many other wisdoms behind this particular commander prohibition your own limited intellect

00:21:31--> 00:21:45

will was able to identify certain hiccups or certain wisdoms, but it may not be so anyway, that can never hinge on the heckum In this sense,

00:21:46--> 00:22:33

from a factory perspective unless the heck Mr. measurable, quantifiable and clear manifest but that is a different discussion unless the Hekmat is pretty much like dial, but from effect perspective that can do hinge on the island. But that would require a metalhead to tell us exactly what the island are, what the elders are of this particular help. And, and and the metalhead would tell us that this problem is not applicable anymore. Because the ayatollah is absolutely not. We don't do this ourselves. We don't do this ourselves so that we basically evade the commands and prohibitions of Allah subhanaw taala. And then the sheikh said, what data to study at our demon hokum and Yep,

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

and Tavi will help me and yearbook Allah, who

00:22:36--> 00:22:44

will therefore be elmen, we are able to the second level is or how your babila

00:22:45--> 00:22:59

in the passive voice. The second level is the exaltation of the decrees that they would not the exaltation of the decrees that they would not be perceived as inequitable, they are not resisted with knowledge.

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

And then the compensation would not be solicited or sought or, you know, pursued. So the first one is, you know, amarula What are medically matters because of the Panama hamro law, the words of Allah, we said before, these are the commands and the prohibitions, and the decrease is about the statements of Allah subhanaw taala, then, is about the fair fairness of

00:23:27--> 00:24:07

the commands and prohibitions and the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala the or they're all fair. So we talked about the commands and prohibitions now what about the decrees, whatever something befalls you that help them have a loss pinata and this sense is not the religious ruling is not an hochma shodai when he says the exaltation of the decree, not the religious decree, not the religious overbearing commander prohibition, but rather the upload of Allah subhanaw taala the father of Allah subhanaw taala How do you make that dream of the father of Allah subhanaw taala that you would never perceive the mother of Allah is inequitable, even though and that is the fine line that we have to

00:24:07--> 00:24:27

be aware of, even though you would you consider the mcdu to be inequitable, not the other. The other is a loss action. The Matador is what he created. So you know, if you see like someone slapping, you know, his federal brother or sister

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

or doing whatever form of injustice to them, that Matador is inequitable is unjust right. But a loss decree in this particular event or a particular deed is just an unjust has just attributed to Allah. The prophet SAW some of them said was several acla and even is not attributed to you. Few attributed to Allah decreeing of this because it is just within his master plan.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Within the master plan, it is just,

00:25:03--> 00:25:52

it is unjust, you know, looking from the perspective of this hub, not looking from this perspective of the decree and but the action, the deed itself. So even though I'm not to do the predestined the event or the is unjust and must be recognized and must be disliked, and must be, you know, condemned, but the decree of this condensable action should never be condemned, that is a loss decree, and should always be accepted, as just have him as our journey to the Create. So that is the difference between a puddle of mud puddle, it's clear, right, and, and the the,

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

you just have to always think about it this way. This is unjust, within his master plan, it is just him to decreed it is fair of him to decree it within his master plan.

00:26:06--> 00:26:12

Then he says, I will therefore be adamant that they are not those decrees of a law that they are not resisted with knowledge.

00:26:14--> 00:26:26

That's a bit problematic. And sometimes, you know, because of the symbolism, and because of the brevity of his expositions, sometimes there are just like, problematic.

00:26:28--> 00:26:49

They're not resisted with knowledge. What we can say here is that the knowledge that the knowledge of the revelation comes from Allah subhanaw taala, because we always, as we said before, whenever you know, one of the great Messiah, who are not infallible, no one is after the prophets, although some of them or you know, aside from the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:26:50--> 00:27:35

when they make a problematic statement, we have to interpret it in the best possible way, and the most beautiful way most compliant Sharia compliant way. If we are in unable, then we do what nostalgia for the ship, because we know that the sheriff has generally like a good compliant imams color, one of the beacons of light, that we seek forgiveness for them and move on. That's it. But if there is, if we are able to interpret his statement in a way that is compliant, and not problematic, then we should just do that. So here, how do we interpret this statement? I will definitely be adamant that they are not resisted with knowledge, because we are resisted that that have not come

00:27:35--> 00:28:26

to pass. We resisted that. Because we don't know them. We don't know if they are locked out or not. You know, regardless of how eminent they may seem, we don't know. So it's not like you know, you give up. Because, like you feel that there is no way to resist there is no way to push this away, you just get given or you give up the fight. Where is the APA as the 1107 federal, federal a federal law we run away from the power of a law to the power of Allah. When the other befalls us, it's already happened then we mitigate the consequences as much as we can. But we have to accept it because already happened right? After accept accepted with complete sort of submission to Allah

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

subhanaw taala and complete

00:28:29--> 00:29:16

his decree whatever he chose, we just have to accept it. But if it had not, before the nausea didn't happen yet. Then we try to evade it. We try to resist it because it didn't happen. We don't know what is what is in store for us. We we don't know what is previous than that, because we don't have access to the preservative tablet. Therefore we just do our best in this case. And I will say it now although in any document that comes later at the end. In this case, all of this is encapsulated in one Hadith, which is effort azada and focus on Bella tarjous. When our Saba cache, Farah taco located, the chemicals that are connected or lacking, either allow myself out or otherwise to

00:29:16--> 00:29:32

myself, ah, so this is the famous Hadith reported by Muslim from Abu hurayrah which starts by mineral polyhedra have a loving life you can fire you know, the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than the weak lever and they're both good.

00:29:34--> 00:29:43

keenly pursued or erroneously, eagerly pursue eagerly pursue that which is beneficial for you.

00:29:44--> 00:29:48

That which is beneficial for you based on your calculations and so on.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

Standard label attaches and seek help from Allah and do not be powerless and the beauty of the expression is it is not do not feel powerless.

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

Do not be powerless as if powerlessness is a choice. powerlessness is a choice. powerlessness is a choice. You know, generally speaking, mostly powerlessness is a choice. Because it's powerlessness is usually powerlessness of well powerless Parliament's of resolve, powerlessness of determination, what attaches.

00:30:25--> 00:30:29

So as long as it had not been fallen, you, you know, you

00:30:31--> 00:30:45

someone got like, a bad diagnosis, that I'm worried about Allah, you know, seek treatment or servants of Allah, try to find it as much as mitigate the consequences effects as much as as possible.

00:30:46--> 00:30:57

Not to say, well, well, I had decreed that I have diabetes, I don't need to take my insulin. You take your insulin and you you have to be diligent, and you have to be sort of

00:30:59--> 00:31:53

very sort of keen on managing the disease in the best way possible. Whatever, you know, God forbid cancer, any anything. You just have to do your best to Salomon, foul, Stein Valera lighthouses, but the prophets are sort of answers that if someone has something had befallen you, then don't say, had I done such and such or highly than so and so, such and such what happened would have happened or would have not happened, because that is the that is negative. And that is also you know, agreement has to be set as my bad omen. And now meta meta meta malerkotla, meta analyze, the all reasonable people of all nations have recognized or have agreed that whoever does not accept destinies will not

00:31:53--> 00:32:32

enjoy life, or you should not enjoy life, their life would be miserable, which this person is wanting or had already before done us. We move beyond them, we move on, try to do our best, and we move on, because we don't have a choice. You know, if you don't like a particular thing, yes. You know, many, most people would not all people would not like that diagnosis. But you don't have a choice. Now. The only thing that you can is what you will do now, with this diagnose, not without because it's here, it's already here. So so that is that is the concept of

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

acceptance.

00:32:37--> 00:32:49

Accept accepting what had before the new and resisting what have not been fallen yet or mitigating the consequences of what happened before the new.

00:32:51--> 00:33:10

Finally, the sheikh said, how you're gonna be robbed, or are we out by the hour then, you know, active voice, a compensation would not be solicited, that when something befalls you, when a decree like hard won, befalls you.

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

You're not

00:33:14--> 00:33:19

expecting, expecting very word, you're hopeful.

00:33:21--> 00:33:28

There is a difference, right? Yeah, hopeful expecting, you're expecting as an entitlement.

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

But you're hopeful that you will be rewarded. If you show patience and gratitude.

00:33:34--> 00:33:50

You're hopeful that you'll be rewarded if you show patience, and the gratitude, but maybe also, that you do not solicit any word or any compensation, short of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:33:52--> 00:34:14

Like you're not eager to see a client and immediate compensation, are aware of the compensation or compensation short of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala you want to use this opportunity to show our loss of pinata. And there is like much wisdom in stoicism by the way. Because, you know,

00:34:16--> 00:34:26

honestly speaking about is when people's quality manner, people's qualities manifest through hardship, that is when you know graceful endurance through hardship

00:34:27--> 00:34:40

shows the strength of people's spirituality and the good quality of their souls, their spirits, to be able to endure through hardship

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

and not to be broken by hardship. Certainly every whenever we say that they have a point that does not mean an endorsement of stoicism in general. It just means that that the, you know, that particular emphasis on graceful and

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

And through hardship is islamically valid. That emphasis on graceful endurance through hardship is islamically valid. So you are not expecting an immediate compensation you're not expecting a word with the compensation you're trying to actualize your potential in endurance and patience and perseverance, and show you Allah subhanaw taala your good quality and how you're using all of your potential to please them

00:35:31--> 00:35:37

and waiting for the ultimate reward which is His pleasure to Connaughton.

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

He said what data to satisfy even hackers apparently who suffer by the third level is the exaltation of the true one,

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

to one or the truth could be

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

hacked, as in truth, or, as in the true one

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

hand, and the truth is also a last minute, is the ultimate truth is a lot. So

00:36:09--> 00:36:19

sometimes people particularly talk about it for now, they mean something else by by the emphasis on ad hoc the true one the choose

00:36:21--> 00:36:24

to indicate or to allude to

00:36:25--> 00:36:51

the fact that we're not true, you know, any existence beside our last one of our besides Allah subhanaw taala. Aside from Allah subhanaw taala is another true existence, our existence is a true existence because our Creator is the true creator, but he is the true one in the sense that every other that any other existence is contingent upon his creation, and his

00:36:52--> 00:36:57

leave and permission, you know, for them to exist and his maintenance of that.

00:36:59--> 00:37:45

But anyway, so to have him in hock to exaltation of the tree, one glorify the Z, and that involves a lotta dolla dolla husaberg, that you do not recognize any cause aside from him, because he's the final and if he's the first and the final cause, so, any cause, but we do recognize causes leading to the effects in this dunya otherwise, we will, the universal order would have would mean nothing will make no sense, there would be no such thing like universal order. And chemists in their lab, they will not be basically expecting that when you add this to that, that you know the outcome there will be such and such. And in this case, you will have no ability to deal with the universe, the way

00:37:45--> 00:38:10

Allah subhanaw taala instructed to deal with it quite a few about a year. So Allah say lead. So Allah said it means equally accessible to the seekers. Everybody, you sow the seeds of wheat, you harvest wheat, you don't harvest barley, and so on whether you're Muslim or not Muslim. So yes, we do recognize that cause lead to their effects by it but our awareness,

00:38:12--> 00:38:43

Allah, Allah tala do know that you do not recognize any cause, aside from him, our awareness that he is the first and the final cause he is the first and the final cause when makers put those causes in their place. You know, as we said before, the knife does not cut without his permission, because it did not cut my neck or throw, the fire does not burn without his permission, because it did not burn Ibrahim out as a seller.

00:38:44--> 00:39:07

But at the end of the day, usually the fire burns and that is how we should deal with fire all the time. But while you are dealing with fire and knowing that the fire will usually burn and avoiding fire, because you want to not be burned, you recognize that all of this is happening with his leaving permission with his creation, his you know, and,

00:39:08--> 00:39:09

and his will,

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

his well and his creation.

00:39:13--> 00:39:47

So that and if you do that you're not putting between you and him any causes. He will he will deal with those causes, yes, but they are not being a barrier between you and him. They are now obstructing you from seeing the first and the final cause, which is a hazard. And then he said what uttara haka, you do not see any rights binding on him. You don't see any entire title means you're not entitled nothing is binding on Allah subhanaw taala except that which he made binding on himself by himself

00:39:48--> 00:39:57

out and as he ought to tiara that you do not resist any choice by him. And we did talk about this and we did talk about Solomon Falcon Stan, but Laila Todd is

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

the

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

You know, keenly pursue that which is a benefit for you and seek help from Allah Spano Tata, and do not be powerless and if something had befallen you do not say, how they done such and such, or how they learn so and so such and such would have happened or would have not happened, but a cut that allows law when something and he did as he will.

00:40:26--> 00:40:48

Finally, the people who after leaving their heart, you know, they should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for having given them the study, and the people who have the need to work for it, and certainly the people who have it, they need to also grow it, grow more of it, and how do we grow more of it by reflection and practice reflection and practice if you really reflect

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

on the universe and the map, the the magnificence of this universe?

00:40:56--> 00:41:39

why some people say that in the maps of life Nevada Rola map, Verily, those who fear Allah among his servants are the scholars that means also the scientists. Well, you know, the Orthodox classical interpretation is the scholars but when the scientists have a claim to this as well if the if their knowledge parents then the Kashi of Elias, I think they would have their knowledge earns them, the house of Allah subhana wa Tada, then they would, so reflecting on this universe and the magnificence and perfection of this universe will allow you to grasp a little bit of the amount of the creator of this universe, you know, look around you and look at the constellations and you know, listen, you

00:41:39--> 00:41:56

know, all those reports about, you know, this satellite that landed on Mars recently, whether this, how, you know, sort of amazed that they are by

00:41:57--> 00:42:18

two and this is a very small accomplishment, because if you look at the this constantly our constellation like, like a, like a piece of like, a drop of water in an ocean. So, so look at the magnificence of the universe, it will earn you the dream of the creator of this universe.

00:42:20--> 00:42:29

And certainly you acquire kazeem of Allah subhanaw taala through reflection on the signs of Allah subhanaw taala in his Deen and the perfection of this the

00:42:30--> 00:42:59

whether it is Akita or Sharia belief or practice, and when you practice those him and then he practiced, Avi, and how do you practice the practice to have him have a lacinato Tada in your interactions with Allah, He practiced our theme of the symbols of Allah and that will grow the theme of aligning your heart and sha Allah to grow the theme of align your heart, your practice, we have a loss of power tada

00:43:01--> 00:43:01

in

00:43:03--> 00:43:06

the Muslim, in exalting that which he exalted

00:43:08--> 00:43:08

so

00:43:09--> 00:43:40

quickly because we don't have time, in your practice to have him of Allah subhanaw taala. If you to ask them sha Allah, what are Sharia law? What are the symbols of Allah, the master is one of the symbols of Allah, the Most of is one of the symbols of these things that you want, once you see them, they remind you of Allah, sacrificial animals that have been tagged for sacrifice, are of the Shire of Allah, they are the symbols of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:43:42--> 00:44:13

All of these things that that remind you of Allah, are of the symbols of Allah. So that's the aim of you, when you walk into the master you do make the dream of the master of the most have money handled the most, and that will develop and grow the theme of Allah subhanaw taala in your heart, through this practice, through this practice your interactions with the things that are symbolic of Allah subhanaw taala or remind you of Allah subhanaw taala you're also your

00:44:15--> 00:45:00

and certainly we already talked about azima allameh role aka the really ready to ship talked about the theme of the commands and prohibitions of Allah subhanaw taala and the decrease of Allah so we will not repeat them. But then of your interactions with a las panatela whether it is in Victor or in Salah, and the the the closest up to him subhanaw taala is when in years to dude, but also the station of the greatest dream of Allah subhanaw taala may be in your appear. There is a disagreement among the staff about whether about the virtue of tm oversea, Judo, Judo vercammen which one is more virtuous and abundant Emile Rahim Allah said that the army

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

But

00:45:02--> 00:45:10

because and he you know, understood this from the fact that the Prophet used to spend equal time between to Morocco and so do

00:45:12--> 00:46:02

but but he said that pm is awesome and highest zyk Pm is greater than solitude has far as it pertains to the remembrance of Allah what you say NPM because what you say of NPM is the essence of Salah is the spirit of sola Fatiha person to slotomania of unhappiness fine Allah says hi divided us Salah, the prayer between me and my servant in two halves. What is what is a lot talking about here in fact, so Allah called the Fatiha Salah, because that's it that's the essence of Salah that is your basically the sort of the most direct interaction because as the hobby as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said on the Hadith, that Allah subhanaw, taala, Manny and sivaji logica. He had

00:46:02--> 00:46:50

met him that the Most Merciful he basically says his face directly at yours or they wrecked his face to your face, in the salon as long as you don't look around as long as you don't look around. So and then he says i divided so when you're reciting In fact, that is when that is the best time to practice tasleem of Allah subhanaw taala so take your time and think about what you recite. Take your time think about and it will always help you always be helpful to learn you know more about the meanings of the Fatiha all of us know the meanings of the Fatiha but it will always be helpful to learn more and reflect more and we've gone

00:46:51--> 00:47:00

over the book assata Salah you know the the inner dimensions of Salah before it will always be helpful to reflect on this because it will

00:47:01--> 00:47:14

you know empower you to have more calcium in your Salah enable you to have more Tavi minier Salah, but supply in general and all of your interactions will allow your executor of Allah and so on. There has to be Tavi.

00:47:16--> 00:47:18

Keep in mind that this will not prevent you from making liquid in every

00:47:21--> 00:47:43

condition. Like even if you're lying down because it impedes you, then it is not helpful. If it hinders you from having a moist sort of sweet relationship with Allah, then it is not helpful. It's not like you know, every time you have to make record, if you're lying in bed, you'd have to set up and you sit

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

cross legged or, you know,

00:47:48--> 00:48:01

cross legged knowing like here is that cross legged squat? Do you guys call this cross link? Okay. So you know, you don't have to sit in a particular way so that you know exactly when you're lying in bed direct line and exec

00:48:04--> 00:48:18

and talim also is not about lifelessness It is not about losing the vigor for life. It's not about lifelessness it is not a it's not an act. It is it is you know the recognition of a lot of greatness and your heart

00:48:20--> 00:48:31

wound if headier reported from the lab normal or from Qatada of the lab Norma was asked can help Ghana Sahaba takuan Carl and Emmanuel vehicle to be him as middle Jeeva.

00:48:33--> 00:48:39

Lama was asked the Sahaba used to laugh he said yes, they used to laugh but face in their hearts was

00:48:42--> 00:48:53

greater than mountains, you know, in the sense of the huge and well rooted deeply rooted, and their hearts Yeah, that did not prevent them from

00:48:55--> 00:49:01

from having, you know, from enjoying their life and having this energy and this vigor.

00:49:02--> 00:49:14

That is absolutely fine. There is no contradiction here. So kazeem in your interactions with a lot of the armor and halftime of a lot of some of the symbols of Alam talim of that which Allah exalts

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

the exaltation of that which he exalted.

00:49:20--> 00:49:27

What Helen Villarosa and certainly most deserving of this Tavi is our Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:49:29--> 00:49:33

So Natasha, zero died on my business.

00:49:34--> 00:49:44

Over in South Africa in our selection, theater, telenovela era Sorry, what was the aroma to Akira? What is it that we have sent you as a witness?

00:49:45--> 00:50:00

Give very good glad tidings and Warriner little amino Bella. So this is the right of a lot His messenger that you believe in Allah and His message, and then the rights of the prophets, Allah, zero to accuro to honor him and to reveal

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

Hear him or to give him big

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

support to him and to revere him

00:50:07--> 00:50:09

and then what to do and that you may

00:50:10--> 00:50:33

basically glorify Allah, glorify Allah This is the right of Allah subhana wa tada that I was finished by Allah is right on us, which is the glorify Him. So this guy has the right of a last minute Allah His Messenger little Minami la hora, sola. And then the rights of the messenger sobre la, there's a lot more towards zero to accuro can you support him

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

and revere him and then

00:50:38--> 00:50:50

and then what you said the one that belongs to a loss protocol and that you glorify Him, glorify a loss pinata, or sing the praises of a loss pinata. So it is certainly

00:50:51--> 00:51:07

a part of the theme of Allah subhanaw taala that you make the most of the one who guided you to Allah subhanaw taala and the one who continues to guide you to align the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada and his companions and his family. Certainly the episode was hobbie

00:51:08--> 00:51:11

for Levine, fcba, the healer enfocado, Mr.

00:51:13--> 00:51:19

Medina sefa, you know, don't revile my companions for by who's

00:51:20--> 00:51:21

by

00:51:22--> 00:51:25

who, who's

00:51:27--> 00:51:44

in whose hands is my soul, okay, by him in whose hand is my soul, or my life, if you spend the feel of the failure of the mountain, or then gold, you that will not compare amount to one of them one of my heart, one of my companions spent in

00:51:45--> 00:51:52

the field of his two hands, or the feet of one hand, and he did not say in gold, anything.

00:51:56--> 00:52:02

That's part of that. And then we have our idea of Allah subhanaw. taala tells him of each and every believer

00:52:05--> 00:52:08

who also was part of it, so it makes it more or less monotonic, and

00:52:11--> 00:52:13

whoever shows hostility to one of my,

00:52:15--> 00:52:22

my one of my friends, I will I will declare war against him. And certainly you're not up to it. But the thing is,

00:52:24--> 00:52:26

you don't know who he is the way he

00:52:27--> 00:52:34

like any pious Muslim could be, he has a lie, every pious Muslim does have like a share of what I

00:52:36--> 00:52:49

but you walk into the masjid and you certainly hurt someone or bother someone, and you don't know that they may be one of our laws, then you would have basically made yourself set yourself up in

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

a war like

00:52:53--> 00:52:56

engaged into a war that you're not capable of fighting.

00:52:58--> 00:53:01

And then, each and every believer,

00:53:03--> 00:53:14

each and every believer of the you know, the was reported for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Malfa, murky, murky and the laws of genuine moment autumn harmattan meant

00:53:15--> 00:53:37

when he looked at the cabin, he said, How great How are you? Great is your sanctity before Allah subhanaw taala and the sanctity of the believer and the size of Allah subhanaw taala is greater than your sanctity, you can imagine that basically, hurting a believer would be worse than demolishing the Kaaba.

00:53:39--> 00:53:42

And then finally, Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:53:46--> 00:53:56

we have honored the children of Adam. So to honor the creation to honor all the children of Adam as part of the creme de la pinata

00:53:58--> 00:54:22

basically carrying this legacy, maintaining this legacy of academia many of them the honoring of any add on the profit loss items for the genocide of the Jewish man. And they said to him, it's a Jewish man and he said that a second Epson isn't it a soul? So to honor the children, Vinnie album is basically to maintain that legacy. It's a divine legacy

00:54:23--> 00:54:24

of the cream bunny.

00:54:26--> 00:54:55

And that is part of the theme of Allah subhanaw taala. So like I said, Those who don't, don't find that in their hearts, they can always grow it and those who have it in their hearts the state can grow more of it because there is no there will always be room for greater for more of him of Allah subhanaw taala greater respect and reverence recognition of the majesty and glory and greatness of a los angeles california

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

Chronicle romantic shadow they learn to stop forgot to worry
