00:00:42 --> 00:00:46

other rulings particularly be about interdiction

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

First we'll start with the moment how do we

00:00:53 --> 00:01:06

handle the law we finished six of the 10 sections. The six sections that we finished, finished in the last one was the section and the valleys and out there

00:01:07 --> 00:01:08

and the last

00:01:09 --> 00:01:16

station in the valleys was the station of him. That's the inner drive.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:26

And he started by saying parallel as a gentleman, in command, eating Episode 30 level become in your head, boom, boom.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:14

A lot of mighty said, however, views should revert from his religion allow bring forth in place of them people he will love and who would love him, people he will love and who will love him.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17


00:03:18 --> 00:03:25

the appropriateness of the starting by this verse is obvious, so we don't need to elaborate on it.

00:03:26 --> 00:04:12

This is a verse from certain meta in which Allah Spano tala said the livina manual may have had them in command, do you believe whoever inherits from his religion itself at the level become and Allah will bring forth people, your head bomb, he loves them, when you're a Buddha who and they love him? A Villa de nada momineen humble was a believers little humidity towards the believers isononyl caffrey mighty against the disbelievers availa money and it can lead to they don't have to be the law. They strive in the cause of Allah. When I have fallen in love with Allah mm, they don't fear the blame of the blamers that will lie to me. This is the grace of Allah He bestows it on whomever

00:04:12 --> 00:04:17

he pleases, will allow us to Nadeem analyze vast, whole knowing

00:04:18 --> 00:04:22

and certainly, he could have

00:04:25 --> 00:04:29

he could dedicate the decade the rest of the lecture to this particular verse.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:40

But inshallah, you know, this is the description of the the ones that love Allah and the ones that Allah loves. It deserves.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:59

A verse like this would deserve our attention. And we need to go and read. You know the different types here is and try to reflect on the meanings of this verse. But it is a very beautiful verse.

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

And it's one of meetings.

00:05:06 --> 00:05:12

She couldn't have met with our local Taliban on Him He will only be one man Allah in front.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:22

And muhabba he starts by defining and muhabba and he says here are local caliber bainer and him at your own cific Beverly Manor.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

That's his definition the definition of mohabbat

00:05:28 --> 00:05:42

are local caliber vain and immature owns Love is the exclusive exclusive, clean game of the heart bit flanked by Dr and owns comfort and intimacy

00:05:44 --> 00:05:49

when given and deprived or in given and depriving and withholding.

00:05:50 --> 00:06:03

So to our local availability zones, because for a hub, you have to have him You have to have inner drive. You have to have erotica you have to have the will. When you love someone you have to have the will.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:09

But that is your pursuit, that is your seeking of the Beloved. So you have to have the

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

Love is a willful action.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:22

Love and we will come to see here that love requires proves love requires basically validation.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:41

So it's a willful action. It needs that inner drive, to seek the beloved, to please the beloved, to earn the love of the Beloved. Because what matters most is not your love of Allah

00:06:43 --> 00:06:58

is his love of you. Right? It is there and his love. And if you are a true lover of Allah subhanaw taala you would earn his love. But really what matters the most is that Allah loves you.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:33

You have boom when you're born and he loves them and they love him. So tarlow Calvin and him at your own speed is the cleansing of the heart and He would later say it's the exclusive cleansing of the heart. The flank by or surrounded by accompanied by him and owns him the drive and own says the comfort thing intimacy, him as your drive to please Allah subhanaw taala the comfort in intimacy is upon the acceptance and reciprocation by Allah subhanaw taala he gives you that comforting intimacy,

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

he gives you that feeling of owns with him as

00:07:40 --> 00:07:53

if you have the drive to seek Him. After a show him your dedication and your devotion feel badly about a man that could mean when given an deprive that like when Allah gives you and deprives you

00:07:56 --> 00:08:50

and that's extremely important or it could mean in your giving an ear withholding your gift for Allah anyway thought for the first one is has even better you know the person to potentially even better a fraud which means exclusive, but fit badly on manner when given and the pride because some people only love of Allah subhanaw taala when they are when He bestows His grace and His bounties on them. So they are when things are well they their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is well as thriving, because but that is their relationship. Basically, as commodification of love that is basically not genuine love. It's not true love. It's conditional love. contingent love is basically

00:08:51 --> 00:08:56

a rotten layout that is basically seeking self interest.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:11

Woman in nasima Abdullah, the heartfelt man have been sorted * Allah says of the people are those who worship Allah on an edge. And if they are, if He bestows good on them and

00:09:13 --> 00:09:40

then they will they have sort of peace of mind maybe they have comfort and peace. They don't have conflict and peace in Allah. They have conflict and peace and a law law does not go away. But they have comfort and peace in that which he has given them. They have comfort and peace in their career and their wealth in their body in their strength and their family.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:48

In whatever sense of belonging they have to a fraternity or a group or this and

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

that is where they are getting their comfort and their menina their serenity and on top of mind view and are subject to fitness here in Colorado.

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

considerado Niala

00:10:02 --> 00:10:03


00:10:05 --> 00:10:15

So, but a fitna, if a trial before them, he flips on his face, he turns on his face he flips on his face.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:22

Most surely he had lost burning out after this life and the hereafter.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:25

Certainly that is.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:38

That is certainly the condition of many, many, many people. And you want to make sure that you're not one of them. You really want to make sure that you're not one of them.

00:10:41 --> 00:11:09

Have the true hug but the true love of Allah subhanaw taala is one that is validated that is proven. One that is surrounded by him, the drive to please them and owns, you know, feeling that comforting intimacy in his company, and one that is not contingent upon anything. It's not conditional, it's unconditional love, it is not contingent upon what he has given you.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13


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

the shifts, that is basically the you know, one of the beautiful definitions also Tod look at Columbus, the clinking of the heart. Love is a willful action of the heart. It's a willful the affectionate inclination of the heart, the affection inclination of the heart, and the definitions of love are so many of them rahimullah mentions 30 definitions that he traces them to different masters of the past 30 different definitions of love. And then he ends the 30 definitions by the 30 his definition it's which is in tonight's definition, abubaker caetani said that they were sitting one day around the Kaaba during the monsoon, season of hunt, and the Messiah that means the Masters

00:11:59 --> 00:12:00

the past,

00:12:01 --> 00:12:05

were sitting together and he could imagine you know, the Messiah

00:12:07 --> 00:12:19

that butcher is talking about one of them was in Junaid, but he was the youngest. So you can imagine a company where this longest and his you know, his turn comes last.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:33

And then after everybody you know reflected on what love means alginate was asked not a poodle era t What do you say your rocky rocky from Iraq, Iraq, Iraq

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

metacoda Araki Fatah lob danza Hippo nuptse, a slave was detached from himself. You know the lover,

00:12:43 --> 00:12:54

a slave who is detached from himself that he will never see or detach from his ego. motor neuron will be connected through the remembrance of his Lord,

00:12:55 --> 00:13:35

among the other a happy fulfilling all of his rights. Now they don't lie because he constantly beholding him with his heart harakat kalba who and where do I bet he the flames of His Majesty the flames of the Lord's majesty burnt up his heart will suffer sure boohooman Cassie would be and he subsists only on the nectar of his infinite compassion. And he subsist only on the nectar of his infinite compassion. One castle for the barman and study of IB, and the bar the compeller

00:13:37 --> 00:13:40

had manifested Himself to him,

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

through the veins of the unseen

00:13:44 --> 00:14:06

phase at the kandalama fabula. So when he talks, it is Biola whether or not aka final, and when he makes any other ends, it is after a law or from a law wave at a heartbreaker. fabbi amarilla. And if he moves it is by the command of Allah, who is a second

00:14:08 --> 00:14:26

from Allah. And if he stays there, he is with Allah, in union with Allah in Jamaica and togetherness, with Allah forbid law he, when he home Allah He, so he, so he is by Allah, for Allah, with Allah.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:34

Allah at subsistence with Allah for Allah by Allah. So they

00:14:38 --> 00:14:39

so they

00:14:41 --> 00:14:48

started to cry and they said it'd be mad MSE da de de la jolla, la TV. So you have

00:14:50 --> 00:14:55

given us a definition that no addition can be made to it or you have

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

given us the ultimate definition may alaria.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

The old crown of the Gnostics or crown of didp. Or if he would be better than the Gnostics because of the negative connotations, so crown of

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

Famer Mr. Lawson, it is the sort of the most

00:15:18 --> 00:15:20

the most inclusive definition or

00:15:22 --> 00:15:32

elaborate definition. And that's why sometimes, you know, sometimes the Messiah, try to be brief, is symbolism.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:41

But the thing is the purpose that we should fulfill the purpose of the

00:15:43 --> 00:15:59

of your statements, whether or not you can be brief. So generally those not particularly brief here, right. So long statement is not particularly brief. So don't be captive to style. It's important.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:07

What matters at the end of the day is the benefit is the lesson that we learned and the benefit, not the style,

00:16:08 --> 00:16:10

not the elegance of the slide.

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

So then,

00:16:20 --> 00:16:25

the CX said, what happened to our data center, from hub back to our own data center?

00:16:26 --> 00:16:29

Well, aka bartoletti, and howdy Romania, laminins.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:35

muhabba pour Love is the first

00:16:37 --> 00:17:00

or the beginning of the valleys of self annihilation, and the steep paths from which he descends, he or she descends onto the stations of obliteration, Matt was obliteration. That's the motto of the ego, the obliteration of the ego, the obliteration of the self. So he says that, everything before may have everything before we have

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

is basically on the other side,

00:17:04 --> 00:17:27

you know, of the mountain, you get to the top, which is muhabba. And then you start to descend into the valley of self-annihilation, according to the shape, particularly in this book, as we said before, because not in all of his books. But according to the Shiva Himalayan his book, he makes fun out to be the final and the ultimate station.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:37

And if you understand the reason behind this, the the prosperity in the

00:17:38 --> 00:18:00

sort of the beginning of the beginning and the middle of the Bessie dynasty, and whatever comes with prosperity, in terms of the lack of commitment, and on the part of many Muslims, being consumed into the pleasures of this life, and, you know, the manifestations of prosperity and wealth.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:14

So, and certainly egoism and selfishness, hoarding, abundance, and all of the ailments that come about with

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

tariff, with luxury.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:36

So he lived in that neighborhood, you know, he died in the year 480, or 81, after his era. So he lived in that time period, when the best he left was had peaked. And

00:18:37 --> 00:19:17

the same say at that particular level, during this time, the emphasis for them was on, you know, crushing the ego, the emphasis for them was on, you know, finance and things of that nature because they were countering the ethos of the day. That's where they were coming from. So, the chef is, you know, particularly in this book, his emphasis on self annihilation, crushing of the ego. So, he considers the Mahabharat to be the steep path, from which you start to descend into self annihilation, anything before this is almost, you know,

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

is is not really of the stations of the elites, it is the public. But of course, many masters and that is the stronger position, they consider because,

00:19:33 --> 00:19:59

like tonight, like the statement of observe a substance with a love for Allah, by Allah to be the highest, to be better than any form of manifestation of satisfying annihilation or even reality of self annihilation, to be higher than intoxication to be higher than bewilderment. To have clarity to have you know, and and to have stability

00:20:02 --> 00:20:26

is a superior and fana to some of them is required the bridge to subsistence become a bit lamb Allah and for Allah, by Allah for Allah with Allah. And for many of them, it is not even required, because we have not seen the prophet or salamander Sahaba

00:20:27 --> 00:20:32

necessarily manifest manifest those

00:20:33 --> 00:20:38

symptoms of like the the followers

00:20:41 --> 00:20:54

it may not be necessary however, part of it is necessary as we said before the crushing of the ego in the sense of arrogance in the sense of pride, boastfulness and that is necessary,

00:20:56 --> 00:21:32

different in terms of the sort of different era the, to the, to the extent that your will, is not in any way, shape, or form in conflict with his world and in complete conformity with the will of Allah subhanaw taala that is necessary, the funnel of shoot to some extent, meaning that nothing can distract you from beholding your Lord or from watching your Lord or watching your Lord's watchfulness of view, nothing would ever distract your your sight from that, that is necessary, otherwise, it's not necessary.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:40

So he the chief here says that this is an idea to defend walkability in hydro minha.

00:21:42 --> 00:22:30

muhabba is the first of the varieties of or self-annihilation the steep paths from which he or she descends onto the stations of obliteration. He says why afikomen zipped up him at limited costs, it is the last station where the front rows of the masses meet the back rows of the elites. It is, you know that big because for him, he told you, that's the sleepers, you get to that point, and then the elites go down to the stations of self annihilation, and the masses would have reached there. And then once they have reached the station of Mahabharata or the place, the space of muhabba they have reached their end, then if they proceed, they are not the masses anymore.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:34

So it is the last

00:22:37 --> 00:22:52

place where workstation where the front rows of the masses meet the backroads of the elites. When doona abroad only our whatever is beneath our self interests in

00:22:56 --> 00:22:58

self interest in compensation

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

or compensation, compensations.

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

So anything beneath and have been anything before him How bad is basically, you know, like a business, it is basically like

00:23:17 --> 00:23:34

deal making, you know, you're making these with the last pinata, and I want this, you know, I'll give you that give me this, give you that, give me this, I'll leave this up, give this up, you give me this instead, it is all locked up the odd salts of interest

00:23:41 --> 00:23:47

in compensations and even those compensation situations do not have to be material, you know,

00:23:48 --> 00:23:51

you could you could be interested.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:15

In nrps, you could be interested in comfort, you could be interested in ease, you could be interested in fulfilment, you could be interested in happiness doesn't have to be material. It's not like you know, I give you this to give you that it's always a material compensation, but you just want to be compensated, and you want to be compensated.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:37

Most of us want to be even compensated immediately. You know, it's not like your you want your compensation in the Hereafter, which we said that we will always want the reward of Allah subhanaw taala. And we will always appreciate the word of Allah. But as we said last time, without that reward,

00:24:40 --> 00:24:42

he is deserving of love,

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

regardless of that reward, and

00:24:48 --> 00:24:54

he is deserving of the honor and the glorification, regardless of any punishment.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

Anyway, so then she talks to her about anything beneath him Hubbard

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

Those who do not have the love of Allah subhanaw taala, the deal makers at the end of the day, their traders, their exchangers.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:12

And that certainly is inferior.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:19

Without any doubt, without any doubt, Roger will have

00:25:21 --> 00:25:43

should never take the place of mahabis should never overwhelm the feelings of marhaba should never even compete with mohabbat they are they are important, they are essential they are part of part of your relationship with the last one I thought that he opened his reward and he feared for his punishment, but they should never compete with the place of habit.

00:25:45 --> 00:25:45

And then she acts

00:25:47 --> 00:25:54

on habit to he has similar to a fella on one tariqa mockito nice the way out of

00:25:55 --> 00:26:06

love is the hallmark of the community. That's the community of the seekers. hub as a motto. Love is the hallmark of the community, that's the community of the seekers,

00:26:08 --> 00:26:08

well on one

00:26:09 --> 00:26:12

on one would be the title or the address

00:26:13 --> 00:26:21

or the guide on the path. That's the path, you know, the the journey to Allah subhanaw taala paths and purification.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:40

Well my penis and the condition of belonging, that condition of belonging belonging to the fraternity of the seekers, you do not belong to the fraternity of the seekers without having the love of Allah subhanaw taala without actually

00:26:41 --> 00:26:43

validating your love.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:55

And then as you have said, Why on earth athletes project and it is our freedoms, and certainly, you know, like

00:26:58 --> 00:27:11

we're not given any of this, that it's you, right, because we want to finish the station of omega, you can imagine the mahabhava lost without a lot of a lot as a station and we want to finish it in one time in one session. So

00:27:12 --> 00:27:17

But anyway, with the shift, then we'll start to talk about the three different levels.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:28

And he says adonijah to Lula, Mahabharata and Dr. Lewis ours what alisal hidden, what to sell Leon and Messiah

00:27:29 --> 00:27:35

he will describe it and then he will start to talk about the means to mohabbat what gets you to the hub

00:27:37 --> 00:27:51

and he wasn't mentioned as babban hub you know the causes some heartburn things that would result in habit and that you could mention some and I would add some

00:27:53 --> 00:27:55

you know from you know

00:27:56 --> 00:27:59

the others

00:28:03 --> 00:28:32

I'm Dr. Aldo cells fitmo to San Leandro masa muhabba the ends on suspicions and whispers, doctor I was I was at the end zones. When cells could be what what cells mean? Could be could mean doubts. That means suspicions, but could also mean competing thoughts, thoughts that compete with this mahabhava. So when the hub basically completely overwhelms

00:28:33 --> 00:28:36

any competing thoughts in your heart

00:28:37 --> 00:28:47

the Mahabharata is talking about it is a hub that ends all suspicions and ends all competing thoughts and all doubts.

00:28:52 --> 00:29:09

What realism figma and it sweetens the service sweetens the service. And that's what we all seek. That's what we all pursue. When the service of Allah becomes the fuel the energy that you live by.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:50

You know, the sunshine of your day is when you basically are in service, it is your time of owns your time of comforting intimacy is when you are in service, not the time of discharging your obligations towards Allah subhanaw taala. But certainly, if you're if we're not there, then we should continue to discharge our obligations and continue to strive to fulfill our obligations, so that we may get to the point where, you know, it, services sweet.

00:29:52 --> 00:29:59

And then he said what to suddenly are the Messiah enlightens the tragedies to send the other Messiah lightens the tragedy

00:30:01 --> 00:30:04

consoles the heart in times of tragedy,

00:30:06 --> 00:30:23

you know, and that is extremely important to the love of Allah subhanaw taala will make light of the hardships in this dunya the love of Allah subhanaw taala will make light of the hardships in this dunya

00:30:25 --> 00:30:34

and, you know, people think that happiness is should be the ultimate pursuit in this dunya right.

00:30:36 --> 00:30:39

Depends on what they mean by happiness if happened, you know,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:49

they mean sad that maybe it means, you know, prosperity and success and happiness, joy in both

00:30:52 --> 00:30:59

in both abodes this life and thereafter, maybe it's the ultimate side. But what they mean by happiness, they mean

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

material happiness, they mean excitement, and you know,

00:31:08 --> 00:31:09

giddiness and so on.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:25

But, but that may work out for people who have worked, who have everything they want, but people but once they start to go through any hardship, they lose that life crumbles,

00:31:27 --> 00:31:30

really crumbles away. And

00:31:31 --> 00:31:33

they will have no meaning no purpose,

00:31:35 --> 00:31:36

to carry them through hardship.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:51

But the ultimate pursuit of life is devotion to God, which will give you always meaning and purpose, meaning and purpose that will carry you through any hardship in life, that will console your heart

00:31:52 --> 00:32:14

when you encounter any tragedy in your life, and that's, that's really resilience, right? Because their life is pretty, pretty unpredictable. And if you're only counting on having your health and wealth and family and career in power in definitely

00:32:15 --> 00:32:19

think again, who had it indefinitely, you know,

00:32:20 --> 00:32:39

no one had it indefinitely. At least if you live if you live long enough, you'll start to lose your health. You know, no one stayed. You know, 33 years old forever. No one is forever 21 or the store forever? 21

00:32:41 --> 00:32:52

No one is forever. 21 no one is forever. 33 It is actually a moment that you're just a moment sorry that you are 33 only for a moment

00:32:55 --> 00:32:57

anyway, and no one is ever 40 even.

00:32:59 --> 00:33:08

So, finding purpose and meaning can be only found with the last $100 they give her the Restore purpose and meaning.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:13

Without the loss of Renata there will be no purpose and no meaning.

00:33:15 --> 00:33:24

And then the she started to talk about you know the causes of heartburn he said hey, I'm a hot button and it is a lot of that 10 bottlemen motala 10 min

00:33:27 --> 00:33:38

10 Boto minimoto lotrimin and he had mentioned some now, he said that it emanates from beholding the grace, it emanates from beholding the grace. Mottola min

00:33:40 --> 00:34:00

remember Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that Abu hurayrah related to us where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Latin Zorro, in a man who has fetta mean komagata, zero 11, who have our cocoon for Allah Matata de Kumara come look at those who are

00:34:01 --> 00:34:02

below you.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:12

And don't look at those who are above you that is in terms of material sort of material bounties.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:29

So as the relatives donor matter of the commodity come, because that is you're more likely to not be lifted the grace of your Lord the bounties of your Lord favors or your Lord up on you.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:40

If you look at those who are below you in this life, or beneath you or inferior to you in this life, and not those, it is important.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:48

It is important that you always sit Sit down. And I was talking to a brother yesterday.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:50


00:34:52 --> 00:34:54

had some difficulty,

00:34:55 --> 00:34:56

you know in life

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

and I told him, do you think

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

Though Don't you think that 99% of people your age

00:35:05 --> 00:35:07

in the world 98%

00:35:09 --> 00:35:16

or 99%? I actually said 95% and I'd be like, no, but then he said that no more than this

00:35:18 --> 00:35:24

I told him Don't you think that 95% of people your age wish to be in your place now?

00:35:25 --> 00:35:26

And he said yes

00:35:28 --> 00:35:29

in the accident the whole world

00:35:31 --> 00:35:34

he said maybe even just here in America.

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

So I said like

00:35:38 --> 00:35:41

and after all of this, how could you not?

00:35:42 --> 00:35:50

How could you not be grateful? How could you not be accepting that there is a problem

00:35:51 --> 00:35:59

that is really a problem. But it is not when 95% of people wish to be in your place.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:11

But if you have a man, then he would not treat this for for anything. And so many people don't have it.

00:36:12 --> 00:37:04

If you just have email, you don't have anything else. But but really like if you if you look at the the name of Allah subhanaw taala the favors of Allah that you can count the number of lions also and if you start to count the bounties of Allah, the favors of Allah you can never count them and sit down and think about it reflect on this. So, my peloton is important and part of this is some self acceptance some self acceptance is you know, we always talk about self recognition right that you should you should not be lenient with yourself to be you know, to allow yourself to be negligent to be heedless and all of that, but there is also there is also some need for self acceptance. You

00:37:04 --> 00:37:06

should also accept

00:37:07 --> 00:37:17

yourself to some extent be content with your accomplishments your achievements to some extent you know particularly in life

00:37:18 --> 00:37:27

when you say you know I wish I had the you know, chosen that career you should say to yourself, but my career is okay.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:39

My spouse is okay. My You know, my house is okay my car you start you what you want, appreciate the laws now.

00:37:40 --> 00:38:31

And these are all laws now menu, you know, I am happy with this car. It's not may not be the best car it may be giving you trouble. But you say you start to appreciate your car should start to appreciate your house should start to appreciate your spouse, you should start to make yourself appreciate your achievements so far. That does not mean that you will, there will be no self reckoning or no blaming, blaming that motivates you that energizes you that makes you improve in the future. But at this point, up until you know this point in time here, I should have self acceptance. And then if there is room for room for improvement, we're talking about the future. We're not

00:38:31 --> 00:39:22

talking about the past. We're just talking about the future, I will do more, I will commit to do more how to resolve to do it more. But self acceptance is important and this is part of appreciating the norm of Allah and part of developing love for Allah to have some love for yourself and want to which is not egoism, it is not boastfulness, it is not arrogance, it is not conceitedness it is self acceptance, to be able to appreciate the name of Allah, because He even gave yourself he gave you your own existence. He gave you everything that you have now, everything that you have done so far, it was by his assistance. So some of this is important motala admin, you know.

00:39:24 --> 00:39:41

And then the sheikh said, what, that's a little bit of isolation, and then it becomes firm by following the sun becomes firm by following the sun. And certainly we cannot emphasize this enough or we cannot, you know,

00:39:43 --> 00:39:44


00:39:49 --> 00:39:54

can't underscore the importance of this enough. It is the

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

it is the manner in Abu Salah Amanda dharani said many people claimed

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

love Allah subhanaw taala

00:40:02 --> 00:40:09

so Allah subhanaw taala tested them with 18 men Allah tested them with the verse, the testing versus

00:40:11 --> 00:40:20

the testing verse, The trying verse, you know, the trying verses are in quantum bonala to the only common law.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:27

If you truly love a love and follow me that allow me love you, because that's what matters.

00:40:29 --> 00:40:37

For a lot of love you that's what matters. So say if you truly love Allah, then follow me that sort of Allah may love you.

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

This is added mechana This is the testing verse Do you truly love the prophets of Salaam follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

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

give precedence to the hochma of the prophet to the armor of the prophet to the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and if you do then at least the then you have basically

00:41:03 --> 00:41:05

you have submitted

00:41:09 --> 00:41:13

a reasonable application, but there will be more coming.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:44

There will be more tests coming and it will claim said that those who who make that claim and provide the initial validation that we are only qumola then it will be set to them may have set them in command any episode at level comment. You have been with buena who is a little mini and isotta caffine jdrf is a bit louder. Hakuna Matata mortis coming, you know, they love him. He loves them, they love him.

00:41:45 --> 00:42:00

They are humble was a believer is mighty against this believers. The strive in the cause of Allah and they don't fear the blame of the blamers. And they don't feel the blame of the blame as long as they are with a law.

00:42:02 --> 00:42:23

Then they don't mind the blame of the blamers. They're not uncomfortable with their Islam. They are not uncomfortable with their Eman. They are not comfortable with their religious commitment. Whether it is you know, with family members, co workers, neighbors, the whole world, they're just not uncomfortable.

00:42:25 --> 00:42:35

In a macadam II was an Obama was a nation by himself, the whole world. You know if if I will be up against the whole world, I don't mind.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:44

I am not uncomfortable with that. I'm completely okay with it. I'm completely comfortable with it. That's why he was a nation by himself.

00:42:48 --> 00:42:50

So then,

00:42:53 --> 00:42:54

then the claim says that

00:42:55 --> 00:43:05

if they agree to this, that Allah Spano Tata will sign the contract with them. contract is in the law of settlement in Romania and for someone Why don't

00:43:07 --> 00:43:09

you consider the possibility to do

00:43:12 --> 00:43:26

so Allah subhanaw taala had purchased from the believers there, you know lives and their property, their wealth and their lives in exchange for paradise, but they are the verses

00:43:27 --> 00:43:28

or the verse.

00:43:31 --> 00:43:38

So what that's what the tabassum becomes firm by following the sun and like I said, so many times when we talk about following the sun,

00:43:39 --> 00:43:46

some people are so dogmatic in presenting the sun to people, some people are so dogmatic.

00:43:48 --> 00:44:22

It's not about dogmatism, it is about spirituality. We said that, if you truly love Allah, then you will try to do what Allah loves. And how could you know what he loves? except through His Messenger celebrities and then what we can allow the thought model available acknowledge who he is, and allow would have not disclosed the unseen to you but the last legs of his messengers, whomever he pleases. So how would you know? Like if you love a lesbian card and you want to please Allah, how do you know what what is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala except through His Messenger.

00:44:24 --> 00:44:26

And then the sheikh said,

00:44:27 --> 00:44:34

whatever model a devotee will Felker, and this love blossoms are by responding with brokenness, a jab,

00:44:36 --> 00:44:56

a jab at blossoms by responding with brokenness, responding means what you respond to Allah, you respond to the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. you commit commitment, diligent commitment, you know, sincere, genuine commitment. It is not love, because you just want

00:44:57 --> 00:44:58

to be spiritual.

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

It is love

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

Because you want to please a lie you want a lot to love you it is love that is validated by proves it is love that can be proven. So,

00:45:12 --> 00:45:31

he Java 10 model a Java Java is responding is for to commit to respond to a loss of another build with broken and this is extremely important as well and the masters of the past particularly you know, stress the that

00:45:33 --> 00:45:35

notion that conception

00:45:36 --> 00:45:41

that example was broken Miss because, as they say

00:45:46 --> 00:45:47

similar to

00:45:49 --> 00:46:14

as they say in casada matea beuerlein and salata lossy, the brokenness, the brokenness of the sinner is more beloved to Allah than the forcefulness of the obedient. The brokenness of the sinner is more beloved to Allah than the forcefulness of the obedient. The Sheikh wants you to be broken.

00:46:19 --> 00:46:22

In your obedience, so he's talking about the job and

00:46:23 --> 00:46:24

so you're,

00:46:25 --> 00:46:30

you're doing everything that you can, you're committed, you're committed, you're diligent here.

00:46:33 --> 00:46:45

And you have resolve in the billions of Allah subhanaw taala. And despite all of this, you are broken, because you know that all of it is is

00:46:47 --> 00:46:56

is is fun. And you know, that you can guarantee staying on the path, you cannot guarantee without his help without his assistance,

00:46:58 --> 00:47:25

you can never guarantee that he will stay on the path and you will not drift away from the path. So you're always obedient and you're always broken, you're coming to him, you're responding to his commands. With complete brokenness, I would have never been able to do this without your help. Keep me on the path. Don't swear of my heart, don't let my heart swerve away or don't, you know, misguide my heart

00:47:27 --> 00:47:41

and witness complete dependence on a lot of thought and brokenness and recognition of your weakness and your inability even to be obedient, your inability even to be

00:47:42 --> 00:47:43


00:47:44 --> 00:47:57

We talked to yesterday, last time about a hybrid network. One of the things that we said was, was when he when someone made the offer and they asked him what's the word of toa?

00:47:59 --> 00:48:45

And he said, he should have asked, What is the gratitude that is the due to Allah, not the reward. Because that is what you need to be busy with, if she needed to get get busy with showing gratitude to Allah for inviting you to his house, for giving you the power to make the love are giving you to feed. And if you did it sincerely forgiving you sincerity. You know, all of this is for is from him. So instead of asking for that, you're about the reward. Just ask about the gratitude binding on you know, gratitude that that you should the gratefulness that you should show to your Lord for His trophy.

00:48:46 --> 00:48:50

Okay, so brokenness that is extremely important.

00:48:53 --> 00:48:54

That's extremely important.

00:48:56 --> 00:48:57


00:48:58 --> 00:48:59

A lot I

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

write a lot I have been stuck in. A lot is not like the arrogant.

00:49:07 --> 00:49:29

Like Home Secretary, a lot of told you in the parking lot is not like the arrogant, liable mechanical talent for hoorah law does not like the one who is conceited, or vain and boastful and Kanika one aseema one who is a trader wicked

00:49:33 --> 00:49:35

certainly like cafe de la vida mein.

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


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

there's so much emphasis in the Quran in the in the Sunnah, on

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

how the evil have kept arrogance, conceitedness, vanity, boastfulness pride.

00:50:01 --> 00:50:05

Then the sheikh said with Dr. Sania habitant avasarala.

00:50:07 --> 00:50:11

Attorney Julie center basically what we're all equal caliber Vishuddhi,

00:50:13 --> 00:50:39

veteran takaharu Minh Mottola to support one another in a layer whether the bill makaan Okay. The second level is love that leads to favoring the true one over all else, and keeps the Titanic in constant remembrance of him and fixates the heart on beholding him. It is a love that results from multiple artists are contemplating the attributes.

00:50:41 --> 00:50:43

That's contemplating the attributes of

00:50:47 --> 00:50:50

the attributes of mind the attributes of beauty.

00:50:54 --> 00:51:00

And you see the attributes of Allah and everything around you, in yourself and in everything around you.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:06

When another inner layer, beholding the signs beholding the verses

00:51:08 --> 00:51:27

that could mean the signs of a lion, the universe could mean the verses have a line the brand, there is an atom macro and Letterman's over the air that you could read, and the air that you could see at the missoura or the air that you could see Latin moku or the air ticket Read

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

between the two covers of the most

00:51:32 --> 00:51:35

in the Qur'an, and the layouts

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


00:51:38 --> 00:51:40

certainly one of the things that

00:51:42 --> 00:51:55

things are extremely important is your connection with the Quran if Allah if this is a last message to you, can you imagine you know your most beloved sent your message and you're not interested in reading it

00:51:59 --> 00:52:22

doesn't make any sense. what love is that and you're not interested in studying it you're not interested on reflecting on it in reflecting on it you're not interested in living by it, what kind of love is that? So a particular connection with the person on physical therapy and what they could it could be better than the Koran

00:52:23 --> 00:52:29

is connected through the remembrance of his Lord connected his Lord through his remembrance so

00:52:31 --> 00:52:32

and then

00:52:33 --> 00:52:35

in the Quran itself. Just

00:52:36 --> 00:52:38

search for the word the head

00:52:40 --> 00:52:47

in the light head boo hoo Allahu you have boo in Allahu Allah you have boo LaHood boo.

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

Allah loves a lot does not love you know?

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

search for the word you have and you will find that Allah loves who

00:52:58 --> 00:53:14

sort of Bukhara really start from the beginning to the end. A lot of them icynene loves it Toby loves multiple Harry Potter mcpa Harry loves it. He loves oxiclean

00:53:15 --> 00:53:24

Allah loves a submarine submarine somebody might have been without TV loves the mother kidding

00:53:25 --> 00:53:28

so the gracious the good doors and Martini in

00:53:30 --> 00:53:44

the gut conscience them attacking the patient was a submarine that would have been that it repentant ones most of it and the ones who seek purification purify themselves interior and exterior

00:53:46 --> 00:53:48

without them without killing those who rely on Allah

00:53:50 --> 00:53:53

you know and clean those who are fair and just

00:53:54 --> 00:54:08

and if you want a lotta love you he told you, he told you even though the people that he loves he told you the qualities he told you your descriptions and your if you want to stay away from

00:54:09 --> 00:54:20

his anger and his disliking of you He also told you you know, they have been martyred in mystic buried caffrey of vitami mecanim Talon,

00:54:22 --> 00:54:25

cola Hawaiian kung fu cannon.

00:54:28 --> 00:54:31

Who else to the last minute Allah tells us that he does not love

00:54:34 --> 00:54:50

we said it was temporary. So so you just search for the word love, you know you have and then you can see in the program will tell you the ones that he loves and the ones that he does not love.

00:54:51 --> 00:54:59

And then the sheikh said one or the other will not come at one or the other will come at so one of the causes of His love is alerting

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

Mathematics which is observing the protocols of the stations. That's basically the sort of that is basically sort of my liberal translation. That the odd is from what it is when we talk about the station of riada at the station of disciplining to discipline yourself, that yard through the different stations, to discipline yourself within the different stations, like the stations that we talked about, like the 61 stations that we have gone through so far.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:53

But it means in general, it means in general a commitment. It means in general, you go by the protocols that will get you to the love of Allah to be beloved by Allah subhanaw taala certainly a lot of the above many things in the Qur'an, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told you in the

00:55:54 --> 00:55:57

actually Sadie footsy So a lot of you

00:55:58 --> 00:55:59

in this hobby Have you could see

00:56:02 --> 00:56:07

the layup saying LA to LA was obvious enough

00:56:08 --> 00:56:10

to hook into some small vehicles with a

00:56:12 --> 00:56:46

wide variety of service availability up to severe tmcp held in Southern Illinois to know what it is hardly, even when Allah subhanaw taala said that, my Lord, my servant does not draw closer to me by anything more beloved to me, then the facade, that which I have made obligatory on him and he continues to draw closer to me by now effort by the surgeon until I love him. So no effort, we said that Vic, certainly is the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala we'll pass it on to the color of

00:56:49 --> 00:56:56

the victory is the end. remember Allah subhanaw taala by reciting the word of Allah subhanaw taala

00:56:57 --> 00:57:20

salah and moneda Salah is at the heart of your your connectedness with Allah subhanaw taala those who are not committed to their prayers five times a day with reflection contemplation and you know, what do not find two menina are disconnected. Really, this connected, even if their prayer is

00:57:24 --> 00:57:30

is is heedless, or they're negligent and their prayer, they're still disconnected.

00:57:31 --> 00:57:35

Made at least they will have fulfilled the obligation but they're really disconnected.

00:57:36 --> 00:57:50

And particularly in the middle of the night, all of these are means to the love of Allah subhanaw taala and on have the means to the love of Allah subhanaw taala the greatest means of the love of Allah subhanaw taala would be

00:57:52 --> 00:58:05

this is the habit that you find really in your heart. This is the habit that is not attainable through exercise or discipline or at the urban macam This is a habit that will be given to you. This is the habit that is here. This is the habit that comes when Allah actually loves you. It is the Mahabharat you could not basically describes the means to it although that you will have to expose yourself to it. And going through the first and second phases will be the prerequisite to be deserving.

01:05:29 --> 01:05:42

01:05:59 --> 01:06:01

which does not mean that the previous steps of muhabba

01:06:02 --> 01:06:05
