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

100 allows us

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

to proceed

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

solo today we have the station of Nina or serenity and we will have the chapter on advanced payment says which is a solemn

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

firstly moment how do we know Lata and his book Bonanza serene said candelas

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

under the station of serenity to Medina, he said God Allah

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

Allah Almighty said oh reassured soul,

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

man would be the mind as the object adjective from Tama Nina and if you call Tama Nina, serenity,

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

then it would be all you sold with serenity or who has endowed with serenity or how serenity

00:01:01--> 00:01:12

but it is also reassured and it is also comfortable it is also you know, because these are all different things that are basically

00:01:13--> 00:01:29

implied. When you speak about menina. It's implied that there is comfort, it is implied that there is assurance it is implied that there is nrps. It is implied that there is

00:01:31--> 00:01:50

also Sakina. We talked about last time, tranquility. And we'll start here by talking about the definition of Toma, Nina and he will pay particular attention to the difference between Tama Nina and Sakina.

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

Because

00:01:56--> 00:02:11

oftentimes those words are interdependent and they overlap. They are interrelated. But they are not completely synonymous. They are they overlap. They partially overlap. They don't completely overlap, partial overlap.

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

So she

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

said to me, Nina, to serenity,

00:02:19--> 00:02:32

is a quiescence that is, buttressed by valid security it's strengthened by valid security, which is similar in certainty to the witness of the eye.

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

So up to many inasa kulanu kawi, Amnon Sahil shabby 1 billion

00:02:41--> 00:02:53

serenity is a quiescence that is buttress strengthen by valid security, which is similar in certainty to the witness of the eye.

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

So basically, what he said valid security

00:03:03--> 00:03:13

because, you know, we are on a journey in this life. And on this journey, it is somewhat a parentless journey.

00:03:15--> 00:03:21

cause anxiety, cause discomfort causes this composure.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

And we do need security on the way

00:03:30--> 00:03:36

some of the security is valid security. Some of the security is invalid security.

00:03:40--> 00:03:57

And he's talking here about money now, that is real, not fake. That money and that is based on valid security Amnon sahaya, valid security, the security that comes about when you have

00:04:02--> 00:04:11

when you have the right relationship with your Creator, the origin, where we all came from, if you have the right relationship with the origin

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

then you will have this valid security. Otherwise, Can people have a fake sort of Toma Nina

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

that comes up from invalid security? Yes, heedlessness will make a lot of people comfortable.

00:04:34--> 00:04:53

You know, and many times a lot of people run away from religion because they just don't want to entertain the thought of an afterlife and recommend and they don't want to entertain the thought of tech leaf is basically the burdens of obligation.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

The burden of obligation the burden of being required to do certain things

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

And to be eliminated from doing nor barred from certain things. That's a burden.

00:05:08--> 00:05:15

So Allah subhanaw taala says about those people in Arizona Department our auto bill hieratic, donia What man obeah

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

Latino Mona Tina, hope you like neural networks you.

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

So in olivine allowed a genetic pattern and those who do not expect or do not hope to meet us?

00:05:29--> 00:05:33

What are the highest adonia? And they were satisfied with the life of this word?

00:05:34--> 00:05:38

Can you really be satisfied? Yes, you could be satisfied.

00:05:39--> 00:05:47

Is it the ultimate satisfaction, it is real genuine satisfaction, no, there will always be something causing you a little bit of discomfort.

00:05:48--> 00:05:55

It's, it's it's a forced satisfaction. It's like he, he tried to suppress the thoughts of

00:05:56--> 00:06:05

afterlife, the thoughts of the that's the end of this journey, you suppress them, they will come around every once in a while.

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

And you just can tell,

00:06:08--> 00:06:13

you know, you can't resist them forever, particularly as you age,

00:06:14--> 00:06:17

you know, the thoughts will become more frequent.

00:06:18--> 00:06:32

And once you start to have different sort of pains and aches in your body and things start to like, let you down, your knees are letting you down. So they just can't help it, your

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

thoughts will come around.

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

So what are they

00:06:38--> 00:06:46

generally, they don't wish to meet us they don't hope or expect or wish to meet us or other linear.

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

They're satisfied

00:06:51--> 00:07:17

with the life of this world, welcome and no be a lot colder to Montana here some form of money. And that's a fake the money in what mine will be handy found serenity, comfort in it. And certainly those who found serenity and comfortable in the life of this world, that is fake comfort. This is external serenity, it is not really internal, it's not inner, it's not something that

00:07:19--> 00:07:28

that is basically inseparable, inseparable from them, is separable. Because

00:07:29--> 00:07:50

it is advantageous. It's external, it is about you know, as long as things are going well for you, we will have to money rather than higher to donate, you will be satisfied with the life of this world. You're healthy, you have money, you're doing well, in your relationships, you're doing well in your career,

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

life could, you know in the profit center in

00:07:56--> 00:08:00

the life of this world is sweet,

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

green meaning

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

pleasing

00:08:06--> 00:08:43

when a loved one, but so you could have some sense of comfort, and you could have also some sense of menina and assurance, but it is always fake. There's always this thing you know, there's always those like thoughts that will come about every once in a while about the purpose of our existence, and about the final destination of this journey. And those thoughts will be unsettling.

00:08:44--> 00:09:29

But when will you truly have true to menina that is not fake, that is not adventitious, not external. It comes from inside, when you have connected with yours. So the source with your origin, when you have known Where are you coming from? And what are you here for and where are you going and you are prepared for the next phase of the journey and you aspire to the end of the journey, you know to the final end of the journey. So, that is why that is why it is important to pay attention to what the chief says because every word has a meaning. When he says valid security Amnon Sahil

00:09:30--> 00:09:56

sukoon stillness quiet since you can we hear that is buttress strengthen Amnon Sahil by valid security. He means to say that many people think they have to menina they have sukoon they have they have security, but it is invalid security. It is merely heedlessness heedlessness.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

This ship

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

The shabby 1 billion meaning it is as clear as the witness of the eye. It is as certain and clear as the witness of the eye.

00:10:10--> 00:10:16

Like the you know it is not something that you imagine it is true.

00:10:20--> 00:10:37

And then the sheikh said ouabain Albania Sakina T for Tron and there are two differences between it that Nina and Sakina tranquility the first difference that she says huduma and Sakina masala tune to re to Moodle hi Betty

00:10:39--> 00:10:50

huduma Sakina savola to Moodle. Hi, Eva here and welcome Nina to sukoon m fisterra hottie owns.

00:10:51--> 00:11:04

They said the first difference between toamasina and sakeena does sometimes these are this is like this may let me sound like splitting care. When we talk about the difference between serenity and tranquility.

00:11:05--> 00:11:27

When we talk about the difference between Amanita and Sakina keep in mind that we're also using, you know the translation, we're just trying to find the best word possible for the concept, the concept of the money and the concept of cicada and so on. So how do we basically distinguish between tomainia and Sakina, the chick says, and certainly

00:11:30--> 00:11:37

Nina as station 59, whereas Sakina was station 58. to point out to us that tomorrow Nina is

00:11:39--> 00:12:01

greater than or not greater than Sakina is a higher station than Sakina. So he says kena is an impetus, solid impetus that causes at times healin whom would lie by the abatement of or, or the abatement of the intensity of the art.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

You know, how

00:12:06--> 00:12:19

how faith or fear is the station of the public. And this is not the public meaning the very general public because the public, I mean, I don't know if the public actually belong to any

00:12:20--> 00:12:26

of these stations, but in terms of the public that are actually the public of the seekers.

00:12:29--> 00:12:48

Not the one in general, the ascetic in the public among the seekers, the masses, among the seekers, the masses, among the travelers, there are some people who are already you know, off the path, but the fact of the matter is among the travelers,

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

they have the scope.

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

And then Russia becomes Russia is basically the learning curve. And it is the station of the scholars.

00:13:03--> 00:13:20

And then you have haber, which is the statement of the RFP, RFP and would be translated sometimes as Gnostics. We try to avoid those translations because sometimes they have negative connotations, like when when A is translated as St.

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

There is no way that you could strip those words from their

00:13:27--> 00:13:42

sort of etymological origin and the negative connotations that come with these words, therefore, it is safest that we call it where they are. And every time we explain to people what to LA is,

00:13:43--> 00:14:17

if there is anyone in the crowd who needs an explanation, but you know, if there isn't, you know, the, if there is no need for an explanation, then you just call it 20. So, an RFP would be translated as the Gnostics but the concept itself is basically those who are endowed with inner knowledge element, never the beneficial knowledge. So the scholars and most of the feanor among the scholars, were not creating here a conflict between scholarship and modify.

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

Most of the RFPs are from the scholars. And, you know, the would be harder. I mean, I don't have the statistics, but and I don't,

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

you know, it wouldn't be hard to say that most of the scholars are at a fee, but

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

they are not.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

There is no conflict between the two, but certainly they are not mutually inclusive. In other words, you may not be a scholar and you you have that beneficial knowledge and the knowledge of the heart and you may be a scholar and not have it. So they are not mutually exclusive, but they are not mutually exclusive, and certainly the relationship between

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

them is a third of the relations is the third the Roxy, it is you know,

00:15:08--> 00:15:22

basically synergy is not conflict, there is synergy between the two, the more knowledge you have, the more likely you are to be of the RFP, you you will be upgraded from

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

COVID Akasha international lab and I bet you were the those who fear Allah among servants are the scholars and Allah

00:15:33--> 00:15:38

the relationship is a synergistic relationship the strengthening each other,

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

but it is not mutually inclusive per se.

00:15:44--> 00:16:00

So, how you buy is basically the hash of the RFP the are to be always in all of the Divine is the country of RV, this However, this hybrid this,

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

of the Divine can, the persistence of this however, can cause

00:16:11--> 00:16:16

can sometimes be extreme end result in what

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

what what they call sometimes, and so on

00:16:22--> 00:16:28

is basically to be crushed by this hybrid map is to be obliterated by this hybrid

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

to be obliterated by this hype. So, when people are always in the station of fear,

00:16:37--> 00:16:49

and the you know, hush here, and then haber, they're always in awe of the Divine and it is all it's constant then this can crush you

00:16:51--> 00:16:56

and then it can obliterate your your existence

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

which has map

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

and they say that mark is required like you know it's it's basically a bridge to self validation.

00:17:09--> 00:17:44

But then we as we said before, that subsistence was by Allah for Allah is the highest station pheno may be a bridge to it, not necessarily people can get to the station of Baka without further because the station of the Sahaba you know and the compliment the perfect ones among the seekers of this path like a generic model for others. Anyway.

00:17:45--> 00:18:04

So, here the ship is saying that this high this or if it is constant, it can cause harm. So Sakina sabula 22 Moodle hybrid eonon sakeena is an impetus that causes at times the abatement of the AR.

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

So it is like it cools off the heat of the

00:18:10--> 00:18:19

psyche and comes at times like cold water to cool off the heat of the R.

00:18:21--> 00:18:26

And then he says what Nina to Sokoto m&m fisterra hottie owns,

00:18:27--> 00:18:47

however, to madonnina is what? To my Nina is the equations of security in the oasis of comforting intimacy owns comforting intimacy. Do you remember the station of bones, we've gone over this comforting intimacy when you have comfort in the intimacy with your Lord.

00:18:49--> 00:19:14

That comes after Raja hope. And after Raja comes What shall hearing and after so becomes hub love and after hug becomes comforting intimacy owns. So those who are so to meninas, then

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

these are two different threads. You know how Kashi Hi,

00:19:21--> 00:19:40

Roger. So these are two different threads. So in when we were talking about that thread, and certainly reflecting on the attributes of rigor and might, brings about the health and costs here and how you've been reflecting on the attributes of beauty.

00:19:42--> 00:19:48

And also reflecting on that, which is the essence of the Divine.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

Because ultimately if you put the attributes of Jelena and a man

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

but you know rigor and beauty, together ultimately that that

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

Which attributes which attributes basically have the ultimate say

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

man yeah because

00:20:13--> 00:20:19

you know the My Mercy encompasses all things and Rockman is an attribute of German.

00:20:23--> 00:20:34

So if you reflect on the that then if you reflect on the attributes of Jamal v you reflect on the that then you are on this thread of

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

what Raja hope

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

shall be earning

00:20:44--> 00:20:49

love and comforting intimacy. So

00:20:51--> 00:21:13

he's saying that the Sakina comes to cool off the intensity of the arm that Toma Nina is there in the station of comforting intimacy which one is better than Tama Nina because the station of comforting intimacy is a stable station Sakina comes to just

00:21:15--> 00:21:31

cool off the heat of the where as Romanian as a stable station or a stable condition that you experience in the station of comfort and intimacy and it is a station by itself as well.

00:21:33--> 00:21:55

Then the sheikh said the difference the second difference between to Medina Sakina he said and Sakina takuna turn with a goon he didn't bother him what to Nina to learn to vertical Sahiba the second Sakina is a description it's a quality and a quality is not adequate, it is not part of the essence.

00:21:56--> 00:22:05

Some attributes are not part of the essence some attributes are part of the essence now they are separate description meaning a quality that is not part of the essence.

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

Okay. So

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

when I say that this is this is

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

what color is this anyway?

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

Yeah. Brown.

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

Gray.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

Okay.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

Any, you know, any other bids?

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

greenish?

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

Okay.

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

Okay, so

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

someone has a yellow here.

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

Banana in your hand?

00:22:46--> 00:23:01

No, but But what does that mean? It means that the color is not really part of the essence. It is not part of the quality, it's a description, it's not part of the essence. So whether it is this or this or that it's not part of the essence.

00:23:05--> 00:23:18

And the so many descriptions are not basically integral to the essence are not integral to the essence. So we as human beings, what's our essence.

00:23:20--> 00:23:46

They say that we are basically thoughtful animals or animals endowed with thought, with intellect, animals now endowed with the intellect. So that would be the as the definition of the essence. And then our other qualities are an integral part of our essence. Here he is saying it is not the surfer. So he's saying that it is not part of the essence.

00:23:48--> 00:24:21

sakeena is a description, meaning it comes and goes it's not part of the essence, that may simply be hard at times, whereas the money never separates from its people. Because once they reach the station of Toma, Nina, once they are there in the station of comforting intimacy or owns then that money now does not separate from them, that Medina does not separate from them and to menina is an action of the heart Even if the body is

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

even if there is reason for the body

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

to be

00:24:29--> 00:24:37

tense or to be under pressures or to have some stress that in our core,

00:24:39--> 00:24:45

you know that in our corner of the room, the inner core of the of the role

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

or the role of the soul

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

can be in a different condition. And that is basically that is basically the ultimate exercise is to make sure that

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

In the body, there is a relationship between the body and the soul, for sure, because the soul

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

becomes an EFS, when it comes down in the body, right?

00:25:14--> 00:25:18

The difference although they can be used synonymously and interchangeably between the rule

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

is that the rule is the separate spirit.

00:25:24--> 00:25:42

And the nap says the separable spirit. It's not separate separable, but it is the rule that is attached to the body. Where is it mostly attached, or most ardently attached, what part of the body it is most ardently attached to the heart.

00:25:43--> 00:25:57

But as long as the root has in the body, it is enough and there is a relationship between the two, they affect each other, they affect each other, as a mutual relationship between the body and

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

the soul.

00:26:00--> 00:26:02

But when you

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

when you exercise,

00:26:07--> 00:26:19

basically, that riada that refinement, that spiritual refinement, the rule gets sometimes to rise to transcend the bodily experience.

00:26:21--> 00:26:27

And this is not really foreign, and this is even common to people that are not Muslim.

00:26:28--> 00:26:53

The idea of ensuring that the rule transcends the bodily experiences. So when you go through a negative experience or a painful experience, your body goes through a painful experience he or she is not crushed. And it is not dampened and it is not. Yours could be in a separate realm.

00:26:54--> 00:27:03

Enjoying the bounties and the graces of ah Lord separate Lorraine

00:27:04--> 00:27:19

as a mountaineer and Allah says in the his famous statements about how what my what my enemies do to me of the imprison me my seclusion of the torture me, my jihad, if they

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

expel me, it is my tourism. If they kill me, it's my monitor them.

00:27:28--> 00:27:39

So then at my feet, sadly, my paradise is inside my chest. So any advantageous experience and experience of the body

00:27:40--> 00:27:50

the route is in a different trail. And when the when the prison guard closed the door on him, he said, we're going to buy this wooden level web button.

00:27:53--> 00:28:04

So he said that like a fence was put up between them in sight, that is mercy inside the prison cell is mercy. And those prison cells used to be I have seen the,

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

you know, don't want to even think about their, their prison cells.

00:28:13--> 00:28:17

And oftentimes the they used to be underground, like a hole in the

00:28:19--> 00:28:35

bottom when when you can. So yes, you could actually use through training through refinement, you could reach a point where the soul is not impacted by the experiences of the body, the painful or negative experiences of the body.

00:28:37--> 00:28:56

And in this case, to my Nina, the serenity, the nrps the comfort of your soul will not be affected by the tension, the stress or any sort of adventitious external circumstantial factors.

00:28:58--> 00:29:06

Then the chief said the director to do that, then the sixth set of three levels this Nina is of three levels that has to do with auto Nina to talebi basically

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

what he or Nina told her if he was

00:29:13--> 00:29:21

one more patella, Elon Musk Uber. The first level is the serenity of the heart in the remembrance of Allah. It is the serenity found by

00:29:22--> 00:29:32

the fearful in hope, the aggravated in the resignation to destiny, the afflicted in the expectation of reward. So,

00:29:33--> 00:30:00

this is self explanatory, so we will not stop for too long here. It's self explanatory, right? This domani and this serenity of the heart is the serenity that is found in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala The law says allatheena Amano water polo boom basically Allah, Allah basically law he took my mo polu those who believed and their hearts find serenity in the remembrance of

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

Allah, Most certainly, in the remembrance of Allah, hearts will find serenity, most certainly in the remembrance of Allah, hearts will find serenity. And that's basically and we will come back and talk about this at the end. But that is the surest path to serenity, the remembrance of Allah. And he's talking about the hearts. So it is the victory that that comes out of the heart. Yes, it manifests on the tongue, but it is the secret of the heart. It is the remembrance of the heart that manifests in on the tongue.

00:30:42--> 00:31:10

So, he says that this is the first level of Amanita and the sad it is that Nina that is found by the fearful in hope, the one who is in fear when he remembers Raja, the one who was in a state of health when he remembers Raja, and as we said, that you fly to Allah subhanaw taala, like a bird, two wings, and a body, what's the body of the bird?

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

Love hub. And the two wings are fear and hope. And in order for you to stay straight, you will have to use both wings. And once you have found yourself sort of deviating in one direction, excessive fear that is causing pasta, possibly SAP, you know, crushing or obliteration, then you need to balance this out with the other when that's hope that's right.

00:31:44--> 00:31:56

But ultimately, the love should be the overall the dominant feeling that you have in this in your relationship with your Lord.

00:31:58--> 00:32:17

So he said that, if you're not fearful and hope the fearful whenever he feels to be too tense or he feels the beginnings of despair, he does not wait until he becomes desperate. If he is the beginnings of despair, then he does remind himself of

00:32:18--> 00:32:33

the mercy of the kindness of Allah the compassion of Allah. Rahim Allah for Allah do the Forgiving, the Merciful, the Compassionate, reminds himself of those attributes, and then finds

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

hope

00:32:36--> 00:32:44

that he said What does he realize the aggravated in the resignation to destiny or in resignation to destiny.

00:32:45--> 00:32:52

The Dodger is the aggravated, unsettled the Dodger tense, you know, aggravated

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

resentful.

00:32:57--> 00:33:34

he resigns to destiny. And when he resigns the destiny, that does not resigned to destiny does not mean that you stop doing what's right. And stop taking precautions and making provisions and doing your best and working. That does not mean that you will stop going to your treatment sessions are something if you're sick, or you stopped going to the doctor or something like this. But you resigned to destiny while you're doing this. You resigned to destiny that is all predetermine. And there is a preset date.

00:33:36--> 00:34:17

For the end of this journey, comes tomorrow it comes next year it comes in five years, it will end. So that the resignation to destiny, so afraid about your job about getting laid off. That resignation to destiny does not mean that you don't do your best. It just means that you won't have conflict that it is predetermine I will do my best, because that's what I should be doing. How to Solomon for the purposes of themselves. But I am completely resigned to my destiny while I'm doing my best. And while I'm sorry embark means be keen to attain that which is a better fit for you while I'm doing this. I'm completely

00:34:19--> 00:34:38

accepting of his choices. And then he said while mipela Elon Musk Uber, that money the afflicted will find in the expectation of reward, and does the effect of trying to menina in the expectation of reward Absolutely. Otherwise, if you know

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

otherwise, people who have no expectation that they are doing that they don't hope or wish to meet Allah subhanaw taala. life could be, as we said in the beginning, somewhat pleasant, as long as it's going well for them. But once they encounter struggle

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

There is no they don't have any reserve. They don't have any, basically psychological resources to count on, when they when they have when they encounter trouble, but but certainly for the believers who wish for the reward of Allah subhanaw taala, regardless of the intensity of the affliction, if they understand that the muscle but the reward will always outweigh that, and there will be no comparison, because the word is multiplied by what?

00:35:40--> 00:35:41

infinity.

00:35:43--> 00:36:09

A word is always multiplied by infinity, the word we're talking about the word in the Hereafter, multiply that by infinity, whatever that word is, multiplied by infinity, it would outweigh your affliction. So hi fi Raja, the fearful in hope budget, aggravated in a resignation to destiny, when muqtada mitsuba the afflicted in the expectation of reward. And then he said, What dadada 232 maniototo.

00:36:10--> 00:36:16

The second level is the serenity of the soul. serenity of the soul

00:36:18--> 00:36:30

fell across the inner cache in the disclosure while traveling in the disclosure while traveling. Like we said, when you travel on a path that's somewhat long, seems long.

00:36:31--> 00:36:41

You want to have some disclosures disclosures, which will show you the details of the path and the details of the destination.

00:36:42--> 00:37:07

And certainly the best and greatest disclosures are the disclosures that will show you Anwar in LA, which is the light of the divine truth, the lights of the divine truth, but the disclosures could show you the way on the past. Like he could have a disclosure meaning that added knowledge.

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

Like if you have studied on issues, it's controversial. You've studied it and

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

you're just like, use the all of your

00:37:19--> 00:37:44

mental power, still controversial, but there are lots of vannatta gives you this L ham, the subtle inspiration that will guide your heart to one of the two choices, that's some form of disclosure, disclosure about the destination disclosure and finally disclosure about the ultimate and chose the, the you know,

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

the truth capital T

00:37:48--> 00:38:01

which is Allah. And then he said so these disclosures on the way on the path and during this journey will certainly bring about our life serenity.

00:38:03--> 00:38:33

Didn't Abraham ask for God? Allah is Allah. Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah kalbi rabbinic a potterhead Mota, Oh my Lord, show me how to bring the resurrected that caught our unto him. His Lord said to him, don't you have faith in that? And Abraham said, Bella would likely have medical be Yes, but I want more. But I want no but

00:38:34--> 00:38:47

for my heart to find the assurance from my heart to find the source that would be the sort of the closest translation for my heart to find the assurance Ilia in can be hard to find to my need assurance.

00:38:49--> 00:39:09

So that would be a disclosure to Ibrahim about that was a great disclosure about one of the greatest truth, which is the truth of what bath resurrection. And that certainly is a great source of trauma need assurance in the sense.

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

And then he said we shall be in a lie the

00:39:13--> 00:39:27

serenity of the soul in the promise while yearning of itself Elijah and the promise while the yearning self is the condition, the status, the yearning, if you are in this

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

condition, yearning,

00:39:32--> 00:39:59

yearning to you know, hearing to certainly we will not we will, we will never say to Allah subhanaw taala that we're not here to your gift, just paradise. Certainly the ultimate here in India is yearning to his pleasure it to him but all of his promises. We we are

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

excited and happy to receive all of his promises about everything, including paradise and including everything he told us about paradise.

00:40:13--> 00:40:31

So these promises that Alas, Matata has given us, when you're yearning, you will find some anina in the promises of Allah because you know that he, luckily for me, he does not, he makes good on his promises, he does not breach his promises.

00:40:32--> 00:40:49

Then the sheikh said, perfect Africa to Allah JAMA, the money in the soul will find in the Union wire the interface. So the soul as an ABS in the body is in a state of the flipper have all of the

00:40:50--> 00:41:03

records basically when you are making a VR, VR is the plural of via, via is the sailor, sailor means all others, everything other than allies, sailor,

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

vitamins, other, you know, of the artists plural of wire,

00:41:10--> 00:41:14

and they are here could be anything, you know, could be your pain,

00:41:15--> 00:41:19

you're itching, you know, you're hungry.

00:41:21--> 00:41:49

And you have an appointment, and your feelings, other people concern about other people, all of these are a VR of the donia that cause distraction caused the flicker, cause dispersion, and even your reflection on the phenomenon dystonia, the different phenomena, different events that are happening around you, even you're listening now to this, looking at somebody

00:41:51--> 00:42:01

all of this is a form of dispersion, but Jama union is here together and it's with Allah subhanaw taala that will distract you from all

00:42:02--> 00:42:04

from all of your occupations.

00:42:06--> 00:42:06

And

00:42:11--> 00:42:25

the goal, the goal is and that is the station of the Sahaba and the station of the prophets is that it distracts you not from your occupations, but in your occupation.

00:42:27--> 00:42:31

So, is that is that obvious

00:42:32--> 00:43:10

in your occupation, so you're you're you are in your occupation with different things in the dunya that you have to go to do and you have to go about, but you are still in a state of togetherness with Allah subhanaw taala in your occupation, heart is never void of the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and everything even your occupations are aligned with your ultimate goal, when they are aligned with your ultimate goal, they will not be distraction you know, if you have and this is basically the exercise of

00:43:12--> 00:43:42

intent having the right intent and having the right direction. And then you align everything in your going out to work in the morning having this aligned with the ultimate goal, you get married having this aligned with the ultimate goal, your entire marriage is aligned with the ultimate goal, you move to a different city aligned with the ultimate goal, everything is aligned when everything is aligned that you know even though we cannot completely

00:43:45--> 00:44:19

we cannot be in a complete state of union all the time. Because the profits are seldom said and I can sell myself, but one hour for this and one hour for that, but even the one hour that is not in that state of union, you could still make it aligned with the other hour. So that it does not become a distraction, it does not slow you down it does not hinder you from reaching your ultimate goal because everything has been aligned. So in the state of Africa, you find a little bit of

00:44:20--> 00:44:21

sort of

00:44:22--> 00:44:40

the composure and you regain your composure by your togetherness with a loss of productivity. So in your state in your occupation, like if you are stuck in traffic, why is it that you wasted a year wasting time? Why don't you say in some of the scar

00:44:42--> 00:44:56

acid very that is why you will find those some people are always having serenity. Like you go you go like particularly back in Muslim countries where there is no definitive line that you stand in.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

You don't wait for your number

00:45:01--> 00:45:18

You'll find some people trying to get there but they have confirmed that they are not agitated particularly or they're waiting you know for their number but there is the you could you could basically may do morada of your current

00:45:19--> 00:45:41

you could anyone has the letter L ally you know just you know if you don't remember any I've gotta just remember that line keep on saying that line reflecting on it. And that would be the best use of your time, the best use of your time anyway. And then that Excel data 230 SATA menina to the hard drive in a

00:45:43--> 00:45:52

third level is the serenity in the divine gentleness while the holding the divine presence to Medina Xu that Hydra Illa Allah

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

Allah is

00:45:57--> 00:46:12

what you're looking for that kind of which comes after either because that could sometimes be confusing to people even when they translate that to menina you're finding the Toma Nina in whatever comes after either so to Manila to that, whether

00:46:13--> 00:46:39

it is the serenity in the divine gentleness, gentleness, while beholding the Divine Presence. What am I Nina to Gemma the serenity in the station of subsistence while and in the state of union. What am I Nina to me Eleonora Plaza, this array serenity in the light of pre eternity while in one station, money in the in the light of pre eternity wide and one station.

00:46:40--> 00:47:18

So when you have the hood, beholding the divine, at that building the divine with the eyes of your heart, you find serenity and worked in the Lord in the divine gentleness, and water Manila to Jama Illa Baka. When you are in sleep together, and this with a lot of hautala you're not afraid of crushing you're not afraid of muck obliteration. Because you are comfortable with his progress for you to subsist, you know, to give you eternity

00:47:19--> 00:47:23

by him with him, for him, by him with him for him.

00:47:25--> 00:48:10

And that eternity will come later in the in the, in the afterlife, but the subsistence of the soul, the soul is, you know, the soul is not does not vanish, the body decomposes, the soul does not manage, what am I not macam, eternal as of the serenity in the light of eternity wide and one station, the serenity of the light of eternity we said, and as the opposite of elapid, when it got the temporal variant both mean eternity but if you add the basically the direction, that would be eternity in the future, as it'll be eternity in the past. And when we talk about pre eternity, we're talking about eternity in the past, when you go back and you go back and you go back and before,

00:48:11--> 00:48:34

before us there were other nations and for those other nations, there was no human being on earth. And before there is no one and before this, there was a large and if you keep on going back and back to where it is, you go back to the light of pre eternity, where only Allah subhanaw taala existed, and that gives you

00:48:36--> 00:48:37

serenity.

00:48:38--> 00:48:47

And it gives you hope, because the one who had always existed and the one who will always exist, your subsistence will be by him.

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

And his promise is never breached.

00:48:52--> 00:49:26

And that gives you money gives you serenity. Now the final thing that I wanted to say is that working for money and how do we work? How do we take practical steps towards the money, there is certainly the most the surest path to money and as the conscious constant remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala physically located men, in the remembrance of Allah, when hearts find their assurance, their money and their serenity, and that is the remembrance by the heart.

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

At manifests on the tongue

00:49:30--> 00:49:38

and the rest of the body. So remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala The second thing comes in from a hadith or to a hadith also that activists

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

so the remembrance of Allah and righteousness and good goodness, good to be good to do good, brings about to menina sowed the seeds of sama Nina and your heart and your knifes

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

Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to have a certain amount, but when he came to ask him about burger and if he said to him What? a bedroom Walkman, a Walkman at La naps? Well, it's mamma haka

00:50:13--> 00:50:33

facade Ouattara naps. Okay, Tanya Pollyannas. So he said, an elder righteousness is what McMahon alien called, is that which hearts find serenity and to menina what motherly laughs and the self finds to my name.

00:50:36--> 00:50:48

And if evil wavers like quivers in the chest, and you know the snaps will find this comfort and ease in it or about it.

00:50:49--> 00:51:03

And that is that is the that is an important lesson in when people that is a beautiful hobbies statistically but unfortunately, a historical understanding of those hobbies would be problematic. Consult your heart,

00:51:05--> 00:51:24

consult your heart, because most of the time, it is about consultant your heart. Most of the time, most of the obligations of their this lead are very straightforward. He like you know, there is not that much controversy or nuances or intricacy in veteran whether they're in for instance, being good to your parents.

00:51:25--> 00:52:04

Kindness, like there there are so, you know, if you look at the public obligations of the court and the injunctions of the Quranic injunctions, and the foundations of morality and the the foundations of morality in the deen, you will find all of them to be straightforward, is not that much, you know, difficulty. They don't require an erudite verifying scholar to decipher things. Clear, straightforward, certainly, that does not mean that we we don't need the scholars for, for when things need clarification, but oftentimes,

00:52:06--> 00:52:16

we things are clear to us. And but we act them so sometimes we just like act like you know, it's not really clear. No, it's clear.

00:52:18--> 00:52:37

So skeptical because it's very important. So goodness, the good and to pursue the good all the time will bring about to Manila to the heart and to Manila to the nerves, particularly which type of good because there is another Hadith that highlights or points out one particular good.

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

Remember,

00:52:42--> 00:52:45

you know, it's hard to, but the idea here is

00:52:48--> 00:53:21

one particular good is has been highlighted as a source of menina and another Hadith reported by Hassan Ali or the lavon who he said the prophet SAW Sutherland said dama de Buccola ala Mallory buka cidco, Toma, Nina well, Kathy boo Reba is that leave that which causes you to doubt that which does not cause you to doubt serpo to manita truthfulness brings about serenity to menina lying through an unlined sow the seeds of doubt,

00:53:23--> 00:53:27

truthfulness is the one good that is most

00:53:28--> 00:53:58

relevant, pertinent here to the discussion of tamani truthfulness. And this truthfulness is basically an encompassing concept of truthfulness. It is not just truthfulness in speech, its truthfulness and action. It is truthfulness in relationships. It is honesty, commitment, to be genuine, to be true, to not be fake, in any relationships in your feelings. Even with yourself. You know your feelings are true.

00:53:59--> 00:54:17

You're true to yourself, are true with your lower your true with the people. You're in like you're committed, you're sincere, you're devoted, that's truthfulness with your Lord. You don't pretend you know here you're not pretentious,

00:54:18--> 00:55:00

with with the people, you are yourself. And do you understand how beautiful that is? and brings about like comfort and composure and inner peace, to be yourself to not need to pretend you know there is no line whatsoever involved. You're always yourself. You don't need to think about what you're going to say because you always say the truth does not require effort. When you make up a story. You have to make up a story that is effort, you know, but when you're always saying the truth, and when you're not pretending and when you're not trying to be someone you're not. That brings about it

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

Inner peace, serenity to money and composure

00:55:05--> 00:55:09

so that's another one and and certainly you know

00:55:11--> 00:55:13

if you want the the

00:55:14--> 00:55:38

the father from Allah subhanaw taala then you want to accomplish the obligatory to Manila in your Salah there is obligatory to Manila and your Salah that you want to accomplish. So have this to Manila in your Salah. So there are lots of pinata grants you to Manila in your life in general. So

00:55:39--> 00:55:44

pay attention to your Salah and develop to Medina and your Salah.

00:55:45--> 00:55:47

Be and be thoughtful

00:55:48--> 00:56:12

in your Salah. Be mindful mindful prayer. mindful praying is certainly a way to developing that tomorrow, Nina, these are just like and certainly when I say let's just talk about when I enumerate enumerate 123 and four does not mean it's an inclusive list. It just means that this is what comes to mind as

00:56:13--> 00:56:23

basically important causes of trauma and either or an important means to monitor productivity other stuff with

00:56:25--> 00:56:28

regard to what I would have seven minutes and come back for our session.
