Salam Alaikum I'm about to proceed in sha Allah Today we will talk about subpoena chapter or the station of tranquility Sakina and we will be talking in the second session about Benghazi pseudo remarks about selling primary and secondary commodities we'll just call it primary and secondary commodities for now and then we'll explain it explain it later inshallah.
First Amendment law 758 station
50,100. So you're almost there. So long, beaten in we're gonna have to 42 more stations and we'll be done.
He 758 station of the stations of the wayfarers, which was on Sakina calamari colourlovers agenda whether the answer the second interview could have been momineen Allah Almighty said it is he who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers as he was sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers. Second, I was mentioned in the Quran six times in the noun form, was mentioned six times.
was mentioned once it's wonderful bacara
wakatobi Amina Tamaki at Kuta woofie Sakina tomorrow become and their Prophet said to them that the sign on has
Prophethood the Prophet would have followed alehissalaam sign his prophet today is that you receive that the chest will come to you from your Lord v Sakina. to mirror become with has tranquility for from your Lord and the sheriff will talk about this in more detail. He was mentioned twice in order to tell by the first one in the context of password hygiene or the back that of when I
was a Lost Planet Allah said some friends or lovers I cannot I was What do you mean? And then and then Allah had sent it down and well after Allah described the chaos that happened in the Battle of honey and early on. Then law settlements of lumps again atrocity Allah more money and and then Allah brought down his Sakina is tranquility on to his messenger and the believers. And then it was also mentioned in the context of a Hydra in the same sort and sort of Toba in the context of the Hydra, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the Apollo the Sahaba Ilana fans along Sakina walay.
Behold what he was saying to his companion laughs and don't grieve, Allah is with us. Fans that alone Sakina Allah and then Allah brought down sent down his Sakina a loss, tranquility, tranquility from Allah, onto him, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then it was mentioned three times and sort of fat. And that is certainly in the context of the idea there was this fright and agitation and
there was also this discomfort that the Sahaba had at the, you know, in after the signing of the Treaty, and then Allah subhanaw taala
you know, brought down tranquility into the heart. One of the ends of the scale of a few could have been momineen. Melon, my name religion
Akan Allahu Holleyman. hakima. And then the other one look
at Veronica Dr. Shara Fatima Murphy, Colombian Faenza, Sakina tala Kareem. And then the last one one is Jada Latina capital V.
Amina and some Kalamata takakura haka.
So, so three instances were in the same sort of sort of In fact, Sakina was mentioned last pinata the first mentioned that he brought down Sakina on his onto his messenger and the believers
to increase their face, to strengthen their face and to increase their face. And then the other one, Dr. Avila momineen ronica. Dr. shutter Allah is well pleased with the believers who gave you the pledge underneath the three fans that are sticking to him and then and as a reward for them. Because it was time of intense feelings. He brought down tranquility. He brought down tranquility, into the hearts or onto them. And then the last one is Jara Vina capital bupropion, HMI and HMI is pretty much the opposite of Sakina HMI is chauvinism Hermia is the heat of egoism, the heat of tribalism, the heat of pride, arrogance, the heat that comes with all of this chauvinism
irrigants zealotry that's what that's how many of y'all have enough capital to COVID mannheimia hamato Jerry and behold when the disbelievers have in their hearts the homies that heat heat of arrogance, heat of egoism heat of zealotry, Hamilton j Lee, the HMI of, of ignorance of the time of ignorance, fans all over again.
And then Allah sent down that Allah sent down his Sakina tranquility that's the opposite of feet, the coolness of tranquility, comfort of train of this Sakina lsvt alimony onto his messengers and the believers will examine him Kalamata taqwa and he made it binding on them to add here he made it binding on them to adhere to piety.
So, these are the six places where Sakina in the noun form has been mentioned in the prior you notice from the from the six places or six contexts, not six contracts, you know, because because of nine sort of Lybia hedger and then the you know, the second of any story that was given to them in the tabooed in the chest. So, but, but anyway, in these six different positions, that the second I was mentioned in these different four different contexts, where a second I was sent down
from Allah subhanaw taala, you find that that Sakina is always sent down in times of what fright agitation insecurity, you know, so, that is that is important, because that is part of the definition of Sakina and when we talk about Tama, Nina and the next station, we will sort out Sakina to menina
by you know, different characteristics or different features that are characteristic of Sakina versus Nina. And one of these characteristics is that Sakina comes down in these times Sakina comes down Sakina comes down as a response to like a time of intense feelings chaos,
insecurity, fright, fear,
when he starts to talk about the definition of Sakina
he said Sakina the 32nd tranquility refers to three things and classifications by them are keys for us to better understand that they open like, like, they open up our mind to difference are like a better understanding a deeper understanding, more insightful understanding, but they are not set in stone classifications, you know, unless the classification comes from muscle, the infallible salaria Selim, then the classification is just the classification. Could it be subjective? Absolutely. could differentiate come up with, you know, a classification, instead of a three pronged classification, a four prong classification of like a five pronged classification, etc, etc. Absolutely. So, you have
to keep this in mind. You know what, so when there is a difference between the speech of Mr. Xu sallallahu Sallam and the speech of anyone else?
And the speech of anyone answer that does not mean that we detract from the importance of our heritage and the you know, the teaching that we received from the Messiah, absolutely not. It is helpful, you know, we look at it lovingly and critically at the same time lovingly and critically at the same time, and we understand that sometimes it is subjective and it depends on the sheiks understanding and some other shapes may have a deeper understanding more insightful understanding or less insightful, or they've just a different perspective, you know, doesn't have to be deeper or shallower it just the different perspective. Anyway, so let's see, I've talked here about the
psyche, inner tranquility, referring to three things and before we go into this,
where the sakeena come from comes from second, it's the three letter root word second, that's the past tense of yes gone, which is verb to
dwell, or to be still, that's where what it means Second, it means
to be still sees any motion, to be motionless, sees any motion, second, from sukoon, which has the cessation of motion, or it comes from dwelling, you know, well, or to, you know,
basically comes from winning comes from second I like to live in your house to come into your house, or to live in your house.
So winning or sustainable.
motion that these this is what refers to the root word refers to and they are interrelated, right? They are interrelated. In fact, if you want to understand then the meaning of Sakina imagine that you walked into your home, what feelings will you now have walking into your home after a long,
frightful journey? Well, all of the feelings that you will have now that is second. So are you walked into your home, you locked your door itself in your living room, whatever, you know, if you have like a living room,
and all of the feelings that you're having now, that is basically Sakina.
Okay, so the chef here when he divides Sakina into the three prime division, and he said it's like, reverse three things. The first one,
he says or whatever second advantages, right, which is a different type of tranquility, just like tranquility. Second, many Australia, the sakeena of Benny's re allottee go to habitat booth that which they were given or that was given to them in the chest, the Ark of the Covenant. We call it the chest. It is you know, in the Bible, it says the Ark of the Covenant, but out of Syria
with accuracy photography has alasa to Ashiya
that the commentators have the Qur'an said that it is smooth, smooth, good wind, smooth, good wind, have good smooth wind. And they spoke of its description.
And it has three characteristics or three characteristics.
The NBA mojisola manoukian kurama masataka.
The salty ha Robin is funny the three characteristics American for profits, or kurama. For the things
we talked about the difference between miracles and karma before so we will not repeat the
kurama for the gains and assign of victory, who sound the made the hearts of the enemies general out of fear when the two roads collided in battle when the two worlds collided in battle. So that was basically the description of that Sakina that's what the commentators said, you know, we don't have sort of like a traceable report to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to give us all of this description.
But that is the Sakina that is mentioned to have been given to any Israel
in the Ark of the Covenant, so when they missed the when they missed that Ark, they missed that Sakina
when they found the ark, they found the Sakina and part of it
not only Sakina for them tranquility for them, but also as is American for their profits as a kurama for their gains and
a sign of victory that made the hearts of the end their enemies tremble out of fear.
Then the chief said was Sakina to thaneeya he ality thumped equality senate Mahathir Mohamad seen the second Sakina is that which manifests on the tongues of the inspired
laser TSA and numlock
it is not acquirable it is not something that you can acquire, that you could possess or order or acquire
in law if he's only had help, but rather a kind gesture of the doing of the true one, and help the truth or the true one. Hello. So basically, it is the Sakina that when you have, you'll speak wisdom. That's what it means. It makes your tongue speak wisdom because you have this Sakina.
And when we talk about you know the way to Sakina we'll talk about part of it an important part of Sakina and are an important prerequisite of Sakina
is to crush your ego. An important prerequisite of Safina is to surrender to the decrees of Allah. These are two most important or the most important two prerequisites of Sakina. to surrender to the prayer to the destiny is to the decrease of alarm to crush your ear. In this case, when you speak your tongue who will be speaking out of what not out of egoism or egotism
And not out of insecurity, fear and anxiety right
now out of intense emotions, because you have surrender the resigned to the decrease of a low, so you will not have those intense emotions or an anxiety fear, excessive grief. Right? And then also, when you crushed your ego, you're you're it you're not be acting out of or speaking out of envy, competitiveness, right? And so if you're not speaking out of envy and competitiveness or
unhealthy competitiveness anyway
and you're not speaking out of anxiety, or fear, then you will speak wisdom
or you speak the truth because your inner speech is not motivated by those inferior motives. Or it is not triggered by agitation or anxiety. So quantity quality sentiment, the theme manifests on the tongues of the inspirative is not a cute wearable piece of hearsay and numlock number one min moto episode I'll help like when you when you hear someone like in denial, for instance, speak or someone like it has an embassy speak or someone like Lima Mohamad speak
Yeah, there is something special about what the you know,
certainly the best of all speeches the speech of Allah subhanaw taala and then the one who was given the most comprehensive speech sallallahu Sallam but then if you really examine the statements that we basically the that we
inherited from the Sahaba and whatever you know and so on and so you will find something special about them they're not just ordinary.
There is something special about them.
And then the she accept Toki Allah Allah sentiment Deaf al hikma camera you'll kill Malak Allah Ya Allah polluted ambia cast casts wisdom on the tongue of the inspired like the angels gasps revelation into the hearts of the prophets casts wisdom on the tongues of the Inspire then we had this we talked about that last time so we will not repeat this or is that that is the highest level of inspiration. Certainly short of it. Why because we don't consider it to be part of a lamb it's like a different category altogether but as when it comes to a lamb the highest category within in ham is the Hadith which is the you know station of armor the other one
took out a certain technical manual called malloc and wahala group and
then she said well don't have the scene I've been located haka monitor, we have a server cache fishable. We have the theme makes the inspired speak
binucleated hepper. The deepest truth.
matter we had Assad bringing about life to the inner souls will catch fish shoba and removing gold belts to bring about life to the inner souls. Usually, when you say Salaam Salaam, Allah sanctify his theory. It means his sort of secret. That's basically the deepest part of the soul, the the innermost part of the soul.
So that's the Sakina that would bring about life to the soul and remove all forms of doubt. bring about life to the soul, the soul the innermost part of the soul and remove all forms of doubt, or all doubts.
Then the sheikh said was sick enough to hear Latinas Allah tala Caliban Nabi sallallahu Sallam mokulua momineen play on yamakawa 10 waru ha.
cicada 230 says the third Sakina here Latina de la la cabana Bay, it is the one that descended on to the heart of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a little bit more money and the hearts of the believers when he when he has Morocco, Alcoa, Canada and it is something that brings together that brings together power and comfort.
For what is power. Ron in this context means comfort
brings about power and comfort. Do you need anything more particularly in a state of fright in a state of fear in a state of insecurity? You need power and comfort. That's all you need in the state.
And then the C accent. He has Kuru LA, five, the fearful finds comfort in it.
Were to suddenly be how has he know what
the grieving and the aggravated that has been the grieving game, the Dodger is the aggravated,
yet the seller behind where the seller he will find solace in it. The grieving and the aggravated will find solace in when stickiness Ha Ha, ha, ha, see you and Jerry Oh, and Abby, the defiant the rebellious, the sinner will all humble themselves to it. So or the defiant, rebellious sinner humbles themselves to it,
then that they can and keep in mind that sometimes, you know, so there's Sakina sometimes, if you have sakeena, your enemy may be subdued to your Sakina versus being subdued to your
anger to your force forcefulness. But oftentimes, the enemy can be better sub duty or Sakina.
Because when they find you in a state in a state of intense feelings or agitation to have this strength and comfort, and to be at peace, to have this tranquility,
they feel that they're that you that you have sort of extraordinary power, that you have something that they cannot have, they can't outdo you. They can basically
speak over you. Because you're not, you're not being loud.
They can, you know, wrestle you down because you're not fighting. It's something that they don't have.
So whenever you sort of demonstrate to them, like something that they think that they may outdo you in, they try to outdo you. But if you demonstrate to them something that they do not possess, they don't have they don't know where it is coming from, what is what is this?
Then they may be sub better subdued this way.
Then we'll talk about the three different levels now. He said, Well, I'm a psyche, networker and lateen zela not only are babbie dltk sakeena salicylate is the karna wahala Sollecito. Raja, as for the Sakina, of dignity that he brought down on to its people and made it a quality of there's a fixed quality of theirs, it is the resultant light of the third Sakina that we just mentioned, and it is of three levels. So the sakeena that he talked about that last minute Allah brought down onto the hearts of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the believers, the Sakina that will bring about comfort to the one in fear or the fearful Akina that will give solace to the grieving and aggravated
and that will make you know, the enemy subdued.
This type of Sakina
is the is the result is the result of you know, the Sakina videocard is the result of this type of Sakina. And he called it Sakina to occur because of our power, although the scholars disagree whether the work part is of the actions of the heart and Sakina is the actions of the body horror or vice versa. But it seems that what is the actions it's at least to me, the Sakina is a is an action of the heart, particularly that he would mention that Sakina is no I have not my Kassovitz of the MOA had not the mechanics of of the grants not the earnings.
Therefore it is more likely that says Sakina is of the actions of the heart what part is of the actions of the body worker is dignity is an ultimatum Salafi Alaykum Sakina ropar when you come to the prayer, come with Sakina and Waqar was tranquility and dignity.
So he said so what God is basically the cloak of Sakina it is the outer garment of of Sakina people who have Sakina their outer garment will be Walker. Walker is what dignity and grace graceful dignity the or dignified Grace, Grace and dignity. That's what God
so he said and as per the Sakina of dignity that he brought that Allah subhanaw taala brought down onto the its people and made it a quality of the
It is the resultant light of the third sakeena that we just mentioned. And it is of three levels. He said, there are two oola sakeena, two horseshoe and tmep, three iron otavi. Man.
The first level is the sakeena of the horseshoe. And we talked before about who should who should have service the consumer of kedma Fatemeh your worship,
to our last part of the issue of service done with that service is done with an out of care, exaltation and attentiveness, the item care Tavi min exaltation for durran attentiveness. Here is how you get this Akina if you want to get to the Sakina try to do your service, Your Worship, your Salah, all of your, your music, your carotid Qur'an with those three qualities, the item means what care to do it with care like to be to give proper care to your service to do it right to do it according to the surgeon to make it to perfection will do to be have to menina you know, in your Salah in your pm and your Roku and yours, dude to reflect on the to do it with care. Okay. And then
to do it out of exaltation, the man to do it out of exaltation, exaltation of the service and exaltation of the served, the one being served a loss of Connaughton. So your explanation of the service comes out of your results from your exhortation of the one that was being served, which is a loss of one or the other. And then lastly, well how do one and with attentiveness, and out of attentiveness, it basically your invite your your heart, to the feast,
not just your tongue, not just your body, like when you are in Salah when you are in fact when you're reading the Quran, when you're serving Allah Subhan Allah, do it with attentiveness, alertness
in your heart needs to be present.
need to be conscious of what you're doing? very conscious of what you're doing. Even when you caress the head of the orphan, do it with consciousness. Don't do it absent mindedly. Some people are always absent minded. Some people are just always distracted. They don't have this alertness.
The chip all the time and I'm not talking about clumsy people that are just have like issues like
but but you need to have alertness, you know your mind needs to be awake, your hearts need to be needs to be present.
It is very important and you need to be very attentive. And certainly attentiveness here also refers to more Aqaba watchfulness of Allah subhanaw taala to be attentive
to the presence of your Lord and His watchfulness over you, okay, sorry, I don't want to have him or her do out of here, exaltation and attentiveness and this will help you develop Sakina although we will come back and say that Sakina is a gift, it is more I have not MC acid it is why have you not cast me but there is there a way to be deserving to expose yourself to psyche the Sakina that comes from Allah subhanaw taala and to be deserving of the Sakina that comes from Allah, although you know, it has to come from a loss
but also like everything else, but we will we will explain this later when we come to it.
And then the she had said with Raja to Fannia a second attempt enter Mohamed the Mahabharata nappsa mulata, for the hardcore Morocco battle.
And she does give a live attention to
and it may be because he wants us to remember this, he wants us to memorize, but he gives a lot of attention to the style
and sometimes it hurts and sometimes it benefits.
But as a teacher, he may be he wanted us. He wanted us he wanted it to be easy for us to read, easy for us to memorize.
But like I you know,
said this before, you will always have to give greater attention to content meaning of our style.
He said, Sania sakeena and Mohamed Abu Hassan appsumo Takata Falco, Morocco battle Hawk. The second level is the Sakina of dealings achieved by self reckoning, gentleness with the creations and watchfulness of
The true one. And here, he was able to combine very nicely between style and content and meaning. Because he really it is the Sakina of Mr. Mehta is basically that it is about a pattern of self reckoning, suspect yourself.
And when you suspect yourself, you will not be surprised shocked when something happens to you because you're always suspecting yourself automatic
automatic automatic COVID-19 physical.
what so when when when a when a calamity befalls you that or calamity befalls you that you
Okay, it's up to me. So basically, this is talking about how they were hurt.
So last pinata, tells them when this calamity befell you, but you had already done to them twice as much in bed, as up to miscellanea means that you had heard them twice as much in bed called to man how they use you say, Where is the where's that coming from? II wonder, you know, where's that coming?
From? Say it is from yourselves. You know that defeat is from yourself. And that is basically an architect or engineer or government of all nations. That's what they do. They don't run into conspiracy theories, they say to themselves, must have been hard doing what what is wrong about us? Where did we go wrong? You know, and then, and this gives them Sakina. Why? Because when you basically travel in a conspiracy theory, you don't know where it is coming from, from here, coming from there, it's coming from, you know, this, this, that they have so many enemies, but when you recognize that it's all coming from you.
That, that narrows it down very much for you, right? Yeah. And then you're not agitated where it is coming from? It's coming from here, you know, had I done what, what I was supposed to do, this would have not happened.
And, you know,
it is not, this is not the law with the bad low This is the good low. Anyway, but we'll
talk about this another thing. So mahatama, turnips is a is very important. reckoning, self regulate, and one will not offer the hug and gentleness, gentleness with their creations to be gentle with the creation. And when you greet them with Sakina
you will basically vibrate positive energy, you will radiate positive energy. If you have Sakina, then you will radiate positive energy and people around you will feel that Sakina that aura of tranquility, of serenity, the people around you will, will feel it and your gentleness will not be basically fake. Your gentleness will be genuine and genuine gentleness, there is nothing better than genuine gentleness, because sometimes gentleness is fake. And sometimes people can fake it very well, you know, but the genuine true gentleness that is coming out of the heart. There is nothing better than this. And then he said one more about that hug and watchfulness of the true one.
And then he said, Well, data, 233, sakeena, 232 32, readable custom.
And all of these are good things that will basically earn us now in a second, but make us deserving of Sakina and when he's about 30, Sakina tunity to submit a readable mortem, nomina shot and fashio but it was not HIPAA, Allah had the roadmap. The third level is the sakeena that to submit to ridable brings about acceptance of the Divine or establishes acceptance of the Divine allotment of shares.
So a lot a lot of different shares to different people. When you have when you when when the river acceptance of this, you know, allotment of shares by Allah subhanaw taala is established in your heart.
Then you will have a lot of stickiness. So, you know,
the you will never say to him Why? layers are made for the homeless alone. He is not to be questioned or interrogated
or suspected. You know, you don't ask for last minute about what he does. Everyone else is can be asked, but he is not to be asked.
Because you recognize that what he does, fits in his master plan of goodness, he has the ultimate good. And whatever comes from him is good. And fits in his master plan of ultimate goodness, even though it is bad from our end. But you have this acceptance in your heart, and that may be may be your quickest and fastest way to Sakina. But then I'll come back and talk about how you should not allow this to lead you to indifference, or spiritual intoxication, spiritual coma, living in a bubble, setting up a parallel universe, so that you could have Sakina because you're just tired of the struggle. You know?
How could you have? How could it be that Sakina is what we're what we need what we are? How can it be that Sakina
and Masada should coexist
with Jehovah is the struggle Sakina is that comfort of tranquility and peace? being at peace? How could they coexist? We'll come back to anyway so he said a Sakina ready to submit a readable class that you know brings about and establishes acceptance of the Divine allotment of shares. What Amina Amina, shall furnish and prevents from excessive shot shot is what
the number of examples
so pennies of honey boys even bestow army Glory be to me Glory be to me. And then we remember, you know,
who was a great scholar and a great motorcyclist, who was certainly able to solve and that is why the mayor hemella finds excuses for him, you will not find that he will not look for excuses for someone who is not
legitimate, you know, secret seeker.
But he found the exact excuse for him, he said that this is this there was a state of spiritual intoxication is usually short, usually transient, they usually come out of it, they usually recant what they said, and this is valid and be clear of it when you know when they come out into the state of software, the state of sobriety.
And they are usually people who are actually are abiding and who are otherwise consistent on you know, the Sharia. But this is our This is the shot, that they're talking about. PC Terek aberrant utterances that are short, that are made in a state of spiritual intoxication, one wakes up from that state and then really recant them, they don't justify them, once you start to justify them and elaborate on them, you know, and then that is not that that is just mere deviation. You know, certainly. So if I were to eat sets of honey sapan and then in a state of sobriety, then he said, yes, you know, that is, I said that, and I stand by it. And this is what it means. And, you know,
because it means union or it means, you know, there is, you know, there is no difference between the Creator, the creator and the creation. If he started to basically give that detailed explanation, no one would be able to find excuses for him. Right. But these apparent esoteric utterances that are made in a state of spiritual intoxication, soak
and recounted in a state and once one comes out from the state of circling into a state of law. And the idea here is maybe you've never been in a state of spiritual intoxication. So you can't imagine. But some people go through it. Are those people, the best people? The highest of all? No, they're not? Are they much better than us? Probably they are. Or most likely they are. They're much smarter than us. But are they the best? No, because the Sahaba are better than them. And that's the haba never had those, you know, esoteric statements that are unjustifiable and shocking. And the greatest of the seekers also never had them because they have the Sakina. The chef is talking here about the
Sakina that prevents from this shot. You don't find Saturday to study for instance, making those statements, you don't find a journal making those statements. We don't have statements like this from our faculty. So the masters of the past did not make the masters of the past did not make those statements, but other masters that may be less than them in ranking and much better than us, but certainly less than them and much less than the Sahaba
Much less than Sahaba less than the masters of the path, like originated models and silence on
made those statements. So we we find excuses for them without justifying the statements, but then we can find excuses for some people who stand by those statements.
the second would prevent someone from making those statements. He said, she said, What are people's are HIPAA, Allah had the root then stops its possessor as the ranking keeps them from exceeding the limit keeps them from transgressing.
Have the growth but what is what is our general roadburn anyway ranking? What is our ranking?
We are either abito laws. So we are diabet and RB of a loss Odin, we are the servants and the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala. That is ordered by Buddha is
our generosity, and that's the best route. That is the most generous terms comprehensive roadmap, that is the all of the rankings that we're talking about, in the 100 stations. These are under
the within an under who they are but are generally the most comprehensive and greatest route but is that about a year, but that is that said about a year has a built in reminder of the difference between us and Allah subhanaw taala and where we should stop as the obedient ibid of Allah subhanaw taala. Okay. And then the sheikh said was sakeena to lattanzio, ala phe kobina V and V sakeena only descends into the heart of a prophet or a 22nd only the sense into the hearts of a prophet or a welly. I don't need to explain whether it's you it's usually it is often translated as Saint I don't like the translation because it comes with a lot of connotations that are foreign to our own
sort of understanding and our own teachings. So we'll just call it to LA, and then we'll have to explain it. That means someone who is extremely pious and having
well when it comes to friendship, you know, a friend of Allah subhanaw taala, a close friend of Allah subhanaw taala, it has the connotation of extreme piety and so on, and being like, supported and guided and assisted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we said before that every believer has some degree of what I write, every believer is worth the worry of Allah subhanaw taala to some extent, to some extent, so there is
the model of animal power, the absolute and unqualified use of the word where nobody but in general, every believer has somewhat AI in them, they are to some in some way, the friends of Allah subhanaw taala
and he is their supporter.
So what so now he's saying Sakina lattanzio lfu Covina vino la Sakina only to the sounds into the heart of a prophet or are they This means two things.
It means that second is certainly one of the higher rankings. And it means that the sense remember now we remember the sixth the sixth positions were Sakina was mentioned in sort of the Bakara to end sort of the tobacco free and sort of In fact, all of them except one, you know, and and sort of Bukhara
this one, this did not mention Enza, but but certainly he brought that chest the Ark of the Covenant will be brought. So it is still coming from Allah subhanaw taala but the other ones are all from Angela pancetta. It is all about sending down the sakeena comes down from Allah subhanaw taala That is why they said a Sakina is from Alamo land Makassar it is from in my head lol mcast What is more haber?
What is Mao who
was what is what happened? What happened is the past tense
the three letter word for root and the past tense which means to give away to grant to bestow That is why Abba Elia Allah gives grants bestows okay.
And the active participant from this as it were, and where
is the active participant from this who
What is the this
superlative they call the superlative, sometimes hyperbolic participant
or an exaggeration if you translate it literally from from RV, and RV, it's civic novella. Right. Sierra Nevada hazard will have and will have one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. This is the OB novella. If you translate this literally it would be not an exaggeration. Certainly in the case of Allah, it's not exaggeration, but that's what it means. In the language. In Arabic. That's what this form c means form of Allah means exaggeration. So it's a form of exaggeration, sometimes they quoted hyperbolic participant.
So it will have to have
he gives He grants. So in my hope, is the passive participant that which is given that which is given muhabba is also the passive participle. It is something that is given to you. So my wife is the plural of mohabbat. So these are gifts that you receive, not earn, he don't earn them. He received them. tranquility is something that you receive, you don't acquire. It is not one of the acquire bowls. McKesson things that you can earn, you don't earn mohab sakeena
you could earn dignity, Grace, the outer cloak, but you don't Aaron Sakina it has to descend into your heart, it has to come down from Allah subhanaw taala because of his mo I have not MC acid.
What are examples of MC acid what is cassava cassava means errand to earn. So, Mac acid is the plural of Maxim.
This is the past participle from to earn something that is earned something that is acquirable. So
what the prophet SAW someone said animal animal with aluminum and head over to Holloman and some reports in the muscle enema Sabra with the sub number edmo guitar Loomis knowledge is by learning
I know my animal Victor Holloman forbearances, by Practice, practice of forbearance, acting for bearing
Can you acquire this? Absolutely. Many people think that they cannot acquire this, they can't acquire forbearance they think that, you know, once you're created, sort of with this
short fused that's usually
when you'll always be that way.
But it's not true. The Prophet says Adam said just like Adam is by Ptolemy Adam is by Adam and he said softer beta sub patience is by practice, even sub even patience can be acquired by practice.
But Sakina is not by the second
you know, you don't basically earn second Aidan is not like practice, this is
does not mean that you cannot be the make yourself more deserving of Sakina No, you can make yourself more deserving of Sakina all of this has to be more deserving. Because again, otherwise, this was before a few times discussion.
You know, this whole issue or this, you know, be the this issue or that you have in your service to Allah subhanaw taala out of care out of exaltation. And with attentiveness of the heart, they surrender to the decrees this sort of reckoning and the gentleness with the people genuine gentleness with the people and watchfulness of the Creator. So as origin hold of this leads to Sakina.
But these this again, in the sense that it makes you more deserving of sekian and then Allah subhanaw taala would would grant it to you, Allah subhanaw taala will send that down into your heart.
And this is an important concept, another concept, and certainly you have to make up
to have the Sakina
maybe with complete doctrine that allows agile and complete reliance on Allah subhanaw taala counting on him, to give it to you
is certainly your greatest tool.
Now, it is important that we say here that this second and Mujahid are not really mutually exclusive. They actually are mutually inclusive. When Athena had a female in Indiana was one of those was driving our cars we as we shall guide them to our paths or paths. So Sakina
is not is not to be like intoxicated is not to be indifferent. It is not you know, like to see a child dying of cancer to see a tree
dying of cancer and be indifferent to this is not really does not mean Sakina it just means indifference.
I mean if it doesn't bring about any feelings of sadness
you have a problem with your Eman your your humanity you have a little problem the prophets of Salaam used to react normally in a very humane way to all of these things he used to cry sometimes when one of us was sick or dies or or this or that or one of his relatives etc.
As you know a story of a Brahim is known, and his grandson and so on.
So and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to get you used to have intense feelings when there were confrontations with the kuffar in the rain or the hills have intense feelings and they used to have that basically made him make this intense to the point where Abu Bakr would come from behind them and and try to comfort him upon his shoulder and to comfort him because he sees how intense he was. So it is not sakeena is not indifference. sakeena is not spiritual intoxication.
Sakina is being at peace. Sakina is about tranquility, being at peace. It's about stability, it's not about giddiness either, because most of us want is a keen eye because we want to get in us we want to be sort of like happy all the time like happy in the sense of giddiness not in the sense of sad,
that has mentioned that knocklyon
but but happy in this sense of giddiness, it's a party in festivity, like that sort of happiness, not happiness in the sense of stability in the sense of assurance in the sense of contentment in the sense of comfort in the sense of
inner peace. That is not the happiness that most of the people are working for, or looking for they are working for happiness in the sense of giddiness. And then they want and then some people want the Sakina to just to protect themselves from the normal human response to
undesirable events. When you hear about the the Muslims in, in Myanmar, for instance, and they're suffering, and you don't react, it is a problem with your aim at humanity. It's a problem with your faith, it's a problem with your humanity, it is this is not Sakina You know, this is indifference, this icky Sakina is not indifference is Sakina that the prophets of Salaam had and it's the Harbor was not a form of intoxication. So prior sobriety is always superior to intoxication. Sahaja is always superior to suck bucha is always superior to Phantom subsistence with by and for Allah is always superior to self annihilation. So you need to be present, aware of your surroundings,
reacting properly, but then the Sakina will give you what
with this struggle, you are in this struggle, struggle against yourself struggling to get into the straight on and struggle against all evil forces, and struggle against all evil forces, you continue the struggle. And the struggle comes with intense feelings sometimes he continues to struggle and you continue you know,
to to basically
you continue to be aware and to be present in their real universe, that last pinata Allah brought you in and administer the test to you in this universe that's in the hand this test of this life has been administered in this universe. You set up a parallel universe and you surround yourself with a bubble and you, you isolate you protect yourself, you shield yourself from everything that is happening around you. When that is also serving, that is not piety that is not you know, worship, that is not a philosopher, that is not devotion to Allah, that is devotion to yourself, that is devotion to yourself. So keep this in mind because this is an important difference criterion between
the true genuine, legitimate sakeena that we're talking about. We're talking about comfort, tranquility, assurance, stability, while engaging the real universe in a way that is most pleasing to your Lord that will break
achieve the you know the objectives of your Lord objectives have been objectives of his sada in, in this world that we live in, not in one in an imaginary one or a fake one. That's it. We took a little bit more than we shouldn't have. But this is an important station and these are some important differences, political
events, the fact that what I can tell them, I'll take five when they
take 10 minutes. That's right.
And we'll come back some
