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

So, some sort of human way

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

to proceed.

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

Today inshallah we will have the chapter on later on.

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

And in fact we will have a chapter on how Allah which is that transference

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

among guarantee of payment, and Kapha guarantee of appearance.

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

First the chapter on via

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

email Madhavi, Okinawa tada said,

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

in Minnesota it's 18

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

Stations of the wayfarers

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

under the chapter of wayra, which I translated as protectiveness. And I will tell you why I translated this as protectiveness.

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

The word for word translation via would be translated into jealousy,

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

if it's word for word translation via would be jealousy,

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

jealousy and jealousy. They come from the same root.

00:01:13--> 00:01:23

But we will we'll discuss this in relation to a loss of pinata and the era of the believer

00:01:25--> 00:01:36

in relation to Allah subhanaw taala or concerning Allah subhanaw taala protectiveness would be the proper word. Also in relation to a loss or failure.

00:01:37--> 00:01:44

protectiveness would be a more appropriate translation than jealousy.

00:01:46--> 00:01:52

The CFE usually starts by verse from the Quran. And he starts here

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

by

00:01:56--> 00:02:07

this verse relating from Solomon alehissalaam Carlota Hackett on TV so they met Ali Salaam rodu, Holly photopic suki,

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

Allah Almighty said, relating from his prophet SAW a man

00:02:14--> 00:02:37

he said, which is so late man, return them to me, and set about striking their legs and necks and set about striking their legs and necks, slashing their legs and x. That would be an appropriate certainly I have to start with when it comes to protectiveness.

00:02:38--> 00:02:53

Because according to one interpretation, so what I meant set up set about striking the legs and necks of the horses because their beauty distracted him from the service of Allah subhana wa.

00:02:54--> 00:03:02

So when the when the when the horses were marching in front of a man, he was distracted by their

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

beauty from his word.

00:03:07--> 00:03:13

You know, the different Deaf seers could be sold out last year, it could be the Word of God and

00:03:15--> 00:03:34

His word, his routine service, his routine worship, he was distracted from it, by this march of the horses in front of him. So he decided to slaughter them. So, he started this might add their necks and legs,

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

when in order for us to have a good understanding of this,

00:03:41--> 00:04:09

because that appears, are not particularly detailed and traceable, then there is no detailed Tafseer that is traceable to Mr. sumali seller, to the infallible one Allah, he said, therefore, when we when we encounter something of this nature, then we will have to look at a way of understanding that will preserve

00:04:10--> 00:04:15

basically our precepts our perception of

00:04:17--> 00:04:38

a great profit, like sort of analysis and our conceptions of prophethood in the infallibility of profits, and things of that nature. So, we will have to find an interpretation that will be aligned with this. So we can either use this interpretation and said that he slaughtered them and then he probably distributed the meat to the poor.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

Because it cannot be just the mere act of this like revenge

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

from the horse's mouth cannot be again a you know, like

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

taking graduates out on the horses

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

but it has to be understood within the you know, our conception

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

of the infallibility of the prophets and so on.

00:05:04--> 00:05:30

Or you could use the other interpretation, where it was not, in fact, a matter of slashing their necks or legs, puffy commas, hot mess, means wiping. But Matthew could also mean smiting or striking, or slaughtering, slashing. But, you know, if someone told it as your mask word for word translation, for mask as well, wiping, mask,

00:05:31--> 00:06:02

you know, wipe it. So the other interpretation would be that when a man Allah, he said, was started to wipe their necks and legs, to show Allah subhanaw taala humidity and brokenness, to show humanity and brokenness. And instead of him watching the horses, he actually started to attend to them and serve them and watch them and, you know, swipe their necks and legs and so on, to show brokenness, before Allah subhanaw, taala and humidity

00:06:04--> 00:06:40

whatever the interpretation is, the appropriateness of starting by this verse is clear, is that a man or a solemn was vigilant about his service, and that is, you know, what Avaya is about? It is so to show that vigilance in maintaining or guarding something that you value in maintaining or guarding, protecting something that you value. That is why IRA is always or not always but often mentioned in regards to protecting your hair.

00:06:41--> 00:06:45

For men, it would be in regard regard would be mentioned

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

regarding the protection of your female family members, particularly your wife, your daughter, your sister, your mother, and so on.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

It's the protectiveness

00:07:02--> 00:07:28

not necessarily the jealousy. Jealousy is your unease concerning the rivalry, or concerning competitive competition or rivalry for your beloved one, or for something beloved to you had not, it's not, it does not have to be someone beloved to you. But it could be something beloved to you. So you're

00:07:30--> 00:07:47

basically leadership, and you're jealous of someone because they're competing for leadership with you in your company, or they're competing for a particular position with you and your company. You're jealous of someone because they are

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

whatever, stronger, more knowledgeable,

00:07:55--> 00:08:04

wealthier than you, you're just you're just uneasy with their advantage. You're uneasy with their rivalry.

00:08:06--> 00:08:59

That's like sibling rivalry. They get jealous of each other, even you know, the they compete for the their parents acceptance and recognition, and things of that nature. So, so, so the part of IRA that we want to focus on, we want to extract from all those meanings a particular meaning, which is your vigilance, your protectiveness of something dear to you something beloved to you. That is the aspect that we want to focus on here. Regarding this chapter, it is your protectiveness, your vigilance, concerning mean the guarding something that is dear, that is beloved to you.

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

That rivalry and so on, we may

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

there may be

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

some times when we need to also consider those meetings but but mainly It is about protectiveness, and vigilance.

00:09:22--> 00:09:33

Like I said so when should I so a man was protective of his relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. So a man was protected protective of the time that he wasted

00:09:34--> 00:09:57

was upset because he wasted valuable time. And he lost his routine service because of that distraction. And then we became angry. And that anger is part of the IRA. It certainly is. You know that anger is certainly part of the IRA

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

And then he started to strike out their necks and legs.

00:10:07--> 00:10:34

Then the chick said Oliveira supposed to marry Bannon what the plan is Sabrina facet and via or protectiveness refers to the intolerance caused by concern and the impatience caused by keenness and competitiveness. It is basically it refers to intolerance. Suppose, man, you're you don't have XML, you don't have tolerance.

00:10:35--> 00:11:04

That's not a positive thing, but it's positive in this context. You don't have tolerance, out of 13 like you do not tolerate failure you do not tolerate, you know, coming short or falling short. You do not tolerate being beaten to Allah by someone else. Support like the Melbourne, how London it is out of concern.

00:11:06--> 00:11:14

It's out of London, London would be basically out of stinginess, but here the more proper translation is out of concern.

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

what the plan is somebody in a facet of the Tata Sabrina facet and basically impatience caused by keenness and competitiveness. Now, Fassa relates to one factor which is competition, it relates to nafees also, which is precious, it is basically out of competitiveness and competitiveness for something that is valuable and precious to you. You're competing for something that is precious to you. Therefore, you do not have impatience, impatience. And that is when impatience is praiseworthy, impatient is commendable. In this particular

00:12:01--> 00:12:24

context, impatient, same is commendable, is because of sobre la, Rosita sobre la is a vise not a virtue, to be able to patient yourself in your journey to Allah, like, you know, don't worry, you're gonna catch up, there is no reason to be anxious or

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

that type of patience is a patient is a can, can dimmable patience.

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

So let's try to look for some examples to understand what it means in that context.

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

You have viral,

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

men of healthy are jealous of other people have the ability to Allah, or what does that mean? We have to understand what that means. And you have

00:12:58--> 00:13:04

for Allah, you have via for a law, which means what

00:13:05--> 00:13:47

you get protective for the sake of a law, you're protective, of what protective of human law, the bounds of Allah, of the rights of Allah subhanaw taala you're protective of them, you're vigilant about them, you do not want them violated, because the root virus is caused by self respect, that will make you angry when your honor is violated. Isn't that what they're about? self respect, that will cause you to be angry when your honor is violated. Okay, when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala whenever you have prayer for Allah,

00:13:48--> 00:14:49

when the bounds of a law are violated, when the rights of a law are not fulfilled by yourself or others, by yourself or others, that is via forumla what the other value refers to is your jealousy could even call the jealousy in this regard. But, but we will have to understand that this is not the malignant jealousy it is not the sort of evil jealousy, like envy, or jealousy. So, but jealousy of say, being jealous of someone else, who beat you to Allah subhanaw taala but that does not mean that you will try to impede him. Because your goal and your aspiration is for everyone to become closer to Allah subhanaw taala because you you do this for yourself, or for Allah subhanaw taala for

00:14:49--> 00:14:54

Allah. In this case, what would be more pleasing to your Lord

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

masipa Osceola, Todd and Leah the disobedience

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

The people or their videos, their Elba is more beloved to him, or their ability in Africa, of course, their mother, or their tober is more beloved to him. If that is more beloved to him, and he is more beloved to you than yourself, then you will be anxious to see everyone obedient, everyone, repentant, everyone drawn closer to their Lord. And that would be your via for Allah or your protectiveness for Allah.

00:15:38--> 00:15:43

Sarah, you know, south of Nova that one day said,

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

you know, if I if I, if I were to see someone with my wife, I would strike him with the sword

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

with the edge, not the site.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

You know, the, the side of the sword.

00:16:01--> 00:16:18

So I would strike him like I would fatally strike him with us with my sword. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about Unum and he said, Father, Anna Javi are two men who will allow the Euro mini Are you amazed at sods jealousy.

00:16:19--> 00:16:25

In this case, we will have to switch the translation and say, I am more protective than him.

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

And Allah is more protective than me.

00:16:30--> 00:16:53

More protective than him. If it is translated, literally it would be I am more jealous than him and Ally's more jealous than me. But like I said, the part of the aspect of IRA that pertains to ally within this you know and the prophets of Salaam is that protectiveness so I am more protective of my honor than

00:17:39--> 00:17:48

the prophets of Salaam also said in Mena or in Allaha in Vedanta law and yet he and min Mahatma

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

the promises of themselves. The believer shows jealousy.

00:17:55--> 00:18:02

And a loss of Hinata is protective, you know, shows protectiveness when the lie of our

00:18:03--> 00:18:20

la vida de la las protectiveness, Allah becomes angry, you know, when we because anger is also intended here. When the believer violates has

00:18:21--> 00:18:46

bounds, the harm of Allah subhanaw taala sacred bounds of Allah. So, when the sacredness is violated by the believer, Allah becomes angry. And then somehow these woman as it is very common for us, and because of this guy, or because of his protectiveness, Allah forbade all

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

acts of lewdness

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

you know, whole acts of lewdness. So, all of this pertains to the idea of a last minute

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

and the idea of the believer that, you know, the Guyana that is this station of IRA will be about two things.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

A guy or a four for Allah.

00:19:16--> 00:19:25

And Allah for Allah does not mean that you will be that you will not want other people to draw closer to Allah one of the

00:19:27--> 00:19:32

some, you know, some of the sort of claimant of the soul have

00:19:35--> 00:19:46

made it look like it would be like this, you know, like you're so protective of your relationship with Allah, like the the jealousy would be basically like

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

the same, same jealousy that applies to your spouse will apply also in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala that you do not want to see anyone

00:20:01--> 00:20:11

compete with you for a loss of pleasure, or for an eagerness to Allah subhanaw taala. You're intolerant of that.

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

And then it was reported from someone that he said, You know, I can't wait until I see no one making Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala whether he meant I can you know that, that he wanted to be the only one to be remembering Allah because he's so jealous of other people having a good relationship with Allah, or he meant that all of them are heedless in the remembrance. So I can see heedless people making remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. I wish they just stopped making Vic, because there is not coming out of their heart. They're thick, comes out of the tongue.

00:21:01--> 00:21:20

While they are heedless, during their heedlessness, and I hate to see that, and many examples have been mentioned by another time about this improper manifestation of this, you know, corrupt manifestation of violence.

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

Someone said for instance, he reports that someone

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

said

00:21:30--> 00:21:48

someone was saying some kind of law, you know, and he felt that he was not particularly sincere about and he said to him, I would like you or gel Allah or something of that nature. And he said to him, I would like you have gone to jail.

00:21:50--> 00:22:29

I would like you to glorify Him beyond that. So shut up. Don't glorify Him because you are heedless. And that glorification is fake. It's coming out of your tongue, and wish that you don't glorify Him. For that you glorify Him beyond the glorifying him with your tongue. So if you stay silent, that would be better than saying that Allah or Subhana Allah or something without, you know your heart, without your hearts being present, or without this being devotional or being sincere coming out of your heart.

00:22:32--> 00:22:59

that's problematic and we will say why it is problematic. sibly Rahim Allah subhanaw taala also reports from Sibley Ramallah that when his son died, he sort of shaved his beard or he trimmed it to the point where it's almost like saving Sibley shaving his beard, and there is a particular prohibition about saving at the time of affliction and time of Messiah, and flexions and so on.

00:23:02--> 00:23:17

And then he was asked about this. And his rationale was, you know, he was asked, why would you shave your beard? And he said that I was afraid that the people who will come to extend condolences to me

00:23:18--> 00:23:29

will remind will give me you know, exhort me or you know, mention a loss of Karnataka for me or remind me of Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:30--> 00:23:56

hands while the heedless. So I wanted them to be distracted by my shaven beard, from their heedless reminders or their heedless a preacher anger exhortations. Because I hate to hear, you know, and and sometimes you you also have to forgive them, sometimes, there is a point and what they're saying

00:23:57--> 00:24:03

is a there is some point there is some

00:24:05--> 00:24:20

value in what they do and what they say, but it is outweighed by another value. So, I have no time Ramallah says that this and this is you know, this is important the it is important is

00:24:22--> 00:24:31

to have the right approach to such faults, this is an error, you know, the Prophet would not be pleased with this.

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

The Sahaba would never have never done something of this nature, they would not accept this, they would not be pleased with this. So having said that, he combined the many errors. One shaving the beard which is prohibited by the fall, to shaving the beard at the time of reflection which is prohibited specifically by the prophet SAW those three wanting you know, to be

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

distract people by this act of disobedience from reminding him of Allah and even if they remind them of Allah, when they are heedless, that is still better than not to remember Allah. Just remember, the remembrance of Allah is still better to remember a lot by your tongue when your heart is to pray. When your heart while your heart is absent, is better than to not pray altogether, isn't it? Yes, it is, you know, to bring yourself to the prayer, play, you know, the the mustard or the prayer matter wherever, whatever, have to stand up and to say hello. But even if your art is not present, even if you're thinking about work, or you're thinking about food or thinking about anything, that

00:25:47--> 00:25:50

is still better than not praying altogether.

00:25:52--> 00:26:08

At least you can form the complied with this injunction. So three is so for them to come and extend the condolences to him. That's an act of compliance because to extend condolences your to your Muslim brother at the time of their, you know,

00:26:09--> 00:26:56

law or affection or mercy, but is is is an act of obedience. Why would you hate for people to do this? What Why would you hate for people to at least remember Allah superficially, you know, may be somewhere it's, well it's trickled down to their heart and affect their heart and change their condition may be that remembrance the utterance of the tongue. Why is it important that we make executive by the tongue may be the vicar that we make some of the victims that we make by the tongue would actually make it to our hearts and improve our condition, or change our condition, remind us remind the heart of Allah subhanaw taala truly remind the heart of Allah subhanaw taala. So that was

00:26:56--> 00:26:59

also improper.

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

So, a combination, just

00:27:07--> 00:27:26

combination of a of improprieties that you did just to prevent people from remembering the loss. That is not proper jealousy, that is not acceptable jealousy is you know,

00:27:27--> 00:28:02

but the acceptable jealousy is what was shown by have the lemon water and this is a story. beautiful story about when you become jealous. You do not want anyone to beat you to Allah subhanaw taala but if someone did, what do you do for them? If someone did beat you beat you to Allah. You know, if your alma animal buckler did beat you to Allah subhanaw taala what do you do? You hit a bug, you know, you want to chip a buck riona impede is the sort of break his leg?

00:28:05--> 00:28:21

Absolutely not. But, but this is, this is what you do. And this was a story that Edna Josie reports in one of his beautiful books, it's called the bottle demo, and it's probably titled properly titled.

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

It is Barbara de Muro, which means the ocean of tears.

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

And then he in this book, the more he

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

reports this story, it's a story about the Lebanon War, I can provide him a Ubuntu pianos theory.

00:28:44--> 00:28:52

But so piano was mentioned only once in the story, but our beloved Mubarak, you don't have to learn what it

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

is.

00:28:55--> 00:29:10

He huge, right, like, you know, provide a barber that haramain we're talking about the a conservative the cream of the crop during their generation during their time, the best of the best.

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

That the greatest of all,

00:29:15--> 00:29:30

in, in many regards, and so pianos salary so we're talking about the most knowledgeable, the most pious, the greatest, the people who have the greatest religious and moral integrity of their generation.

00:29:32--> 00:29:42

So our beloved roenick went to a cowboy one day there was a drought in Mecca and I've loved him Broderick went to the Kaaba and he found black young man

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

who was a slave

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

sitting by one of the doors of a carbon aluminum box set close to him, and he heard them making the for rain. He heard the making dry for rain. And then he said

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

Add

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

Allah, Allah Patty's zoo, boo,

00:30:07--> 00:30:20

boo, boo, boo, la the faces are worn because of the sins and you have chosen to discipline your servants to remind them of you and to discipline them. But I will show them your mercy

00:30:23--> 00:30:29

nothing but good comes from you. Show them their ear mercy, bring down the rain now.

00:30:33--> 00:30:56

They are going through extreme hardship, bring the rain down now. And then this boy kept on saying, bring it down Now, as far as as they are. So he said an Avalon, Barak said there was no there were no clouds. And he said, Now, now, now.

00:30:57--> 00:31:04

And then I looked up and there were clouds and started they're heavily rained to pour down rain.

00:31:05--> 00:31:22

So long when I looked at this, and he's like, Well, you know, because likely he was praying. Likely, you know, his friends also are praying for his friends or who saw pianos every and provided.

00:31:24--> 00:31:33

These people were praying and then he sees this and then he goes to violent and then he follows this young boy

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

to his place to his residence, that was the residence of his master.

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

He followed him to his residence and then he went to the provider

00:31:46--> 00:31:49

and he was distressed the you know

00:31:50--> 00:31:59

so provider crowd was talking to him and then he was not paying attention providers. What is wrong he was saying to them what's wrong with you? And

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

the longer accent

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

provider subaqua lie

00:32:06--> 00:32:12

we were beat into someone else be the store last word on the federal level una sobre

00:32:13--> 00:32:21

la de via Runa fatawa Duna someone else beat us to Allah and he took him as a relay

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

he took him you know

00:32:28--> 00:32:34

as a whether you're not us he took him not us as our as a friend.

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

So then

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

but but what did I do?

00:32:45--> 00:33:00

Levin and Barack went to the house of that you know the house of that young boy and he asked the he asked about him and then the master came out and said to him

00:33:01--> 00:33:09

I can give you anyone but not this one because I feel his the blessings of his presence and my home

00:33:10--> 00:33:24

and then of the loving Barack kept on leading to him by this young boy from them and he said to him How do you want me to go back to food if you see

00:33:26--> 00:33:28

these people are known to be you know

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

to be who they are know who you know them to be?

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

So he said to this man, how do you want me to go back to vitamin A and Sophie NFlt without basically bringing them the boy that I talked to him about

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

until the Master said to him Okay, I will I will tell him to you about the rock man.

00:33:55--> 00:34:08

You're you're you're visiting me and you're coming to my home is so dear to my heart. Okay, I'll send him to you. And then he was talking he was taking the boy back to provide him

00:34:10--> 00:34:22

and Savannah salary, you know to show them the gym to show them the one whose prayer was answered by Allah subhanaw taala after the people love Mecca where you know

00:34:23--> 00:34:26

where for praying without

00:34:30--> 00:34:35

accomplishing or achieving they're there they want or need.

00:34:37--> 00:35:00

So he took him took him back and then on the way the boy said to him, the boy call them man. And that was the cornea of the Loveland water. So the boy call them and then I'm gonna accept them the bake, which means that your service so the boy is like, you know, Masters don't say at your

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

service to their slaves slaves say at your service to their masters don't say that to me.

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

And then have the lemon and garlic said to him

00:35:12--> 00:35:17

Matt odd Habibi. What What would you like oh my oh beloved.

00:35:19--> 00:35:24

And then the boy said, Why have you bought me You could have bought someone else I'm too weak to

00:35:27--> 00:35:32

and I'm too weak to serve and then I'm the loving God accepts him

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

any louder acapella who domani Abba?

00:35:40--> 00:35:52

May Allah never see you serving me ever. I did not buy you for this I bought you never started to clear it back to free you were abney like I

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

used to be wealthy and he used to be you know,

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

very generous, extremely, extremely generous. And

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

you know, to

00:36:07--> 00:36:11

build the house for you was a wizard and I'll get you married

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

and I will serve you.

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

So the so the boy then

00:36:22--> 00:36:28

the boy then started to cry and he said

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

that you you're not doing this except because except after seeing me seeing my communication with a look at the side of

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

my communication with a lot and I wanted to keep this private. And I enjoyed it when it was

00:36:49--> 00:36:56

an angel enjoyed it when it was private. But now you know about it. And now everyone will know about it.

00:36:57--> 00:37:11

And he started to cry and then he asked him to, to go to pray to rock as the first biomass the mustard they asked him to pray to Caracas and he went in and pray to Allah cause

00:37:12--> 00:37:21

and Baraka was was waiting for him. He told them, Why don't come come. He told him Let's go first and see if available.

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

But he was he was waiting for him.

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

And then after he prayed.

00:37:33--> 00:37:37

He said to him as though they are cola. I leave you in a loss.

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

protection. And

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

the lava rock said, Where are you going?

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

And he told me

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

I'm going on a long journey.

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

And then he frustrated and died.

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

Maybe he had asked Allah subhanaw taala to take him at that time. And a lot further responded to his diet like he did before.

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

So the point here is

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

alumna Barak felt jealous

00:38:24--> 00:38:34

of the lava filter that someone beat him to Allah subhanaw taala we were praying for rain. How come Allah responded to him and did not respond to me.

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

So if that's jealousy, then that's that's fine.

00:38:41--> 00:39:02

If that's what you feel, you feel upset because someone beat you to Allah, it is fine. But that's what you do with the people who beat you to Allah. First you're happy because your Lord is happy. Your Lord is or your Lord is pleased. They are pleased because your Lord is please

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

allow us to talk with Rob

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

halochem sacaton abiding

00:39:10--> 00:39:19

allies rejoices in the repentance of his servant more than one of you who had found this gamma laughter You lost him in a barren desert. Or

00:39:21--> 00:39:26

but but you're you're you're pleased because you're Lord of this place, then you're also

00:39:29--> 00:40:00

you become affectionate towards those people who beat us or last minute. It's not a sense of rivalry where you start to have, you know, resentment or you hold grudges against them because they beat you to Allah you become more affectionate towards the people who beat you to Allah subhanaw taala because like I said before, when I will borrow means that you remove your ego from the center, and you place a lot of the center and those who are closer to a lot become closer to you. Those who are more willing

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

Love to Allah become more beloved

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

to you.

00:40:05--> 00:40:23

So that was the jealousy of the love know what I can do better than those people. They did not want anyone to beat them to Allah remember what type of network when we were talking about why we wanted one of the statements last time we were talking about wavenet one of the statements of what happened

00:40:25--> 00:40:29

was an LS B attack a VA had suffered.

00:40:31--> 00:40:54

Well, I've used to say, if you can make sure that no one will beat you to Allah, then do it. Make sure that no one will be to Allah, if he can do that, if he can make sure that no one will be to Allah do how do you do it? By excelling in the service of Allah by extending again, sincerity and devotion to Allah.

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

Know

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

because likely,

00:41:02--> 00:41:21

that boy was that boy he was a slave to he likely did not have that much time to serve in terms of like, do things in terms of pray, although his master said that he prays most of the night, he allowed him because he felt the blessings of his presence in his home.

00:41:23--> 00:41:38

But he did not have the you know, the capacity to do the things like I've loved him Bartok used to do of the robotic used to be a great scholar, verifying erudite scholar, he used to be a great was one of the greatest

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

hand he used to be also

00:41:44--> 00:41:50

a great nesic ibid worshiper servant of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:41:51--> 00:42:22

And we're not saying necessarily that this boy was better than the love of God, if we're not judging in that sense, but at least of the loving robotic field, that, you know, a lot responded to him, and did not respond to me. And that, you know, told us something. So, the point here is that there is, you know, you're the travel by the heart is completely different from the travel by the body.

00:42:23--> 00:42:30

When your heart Your heart can cover a much larger distance, in a much

00:42:31--> 00:42:43

shorter time than your body. He could, you could advance on the journey to Allah subhanaw taala by millions of

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

times

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

with your heart,

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

millions of times more than you're here body.

00:42:54--> 00:43:10

So it is devotion. It is sincerity, humility, brokenness, that probably got this boy ahead of many others who did a lot more than him

00:43:13--> 00:43:25

in terms of service, in terms of worship, in terms of ritual rituals, so that's that's via via is basically to make sure that no one beats you to a loss of time.

00:43:28--> 00:43:29

And

00:43:31--> 00:43:50

also feel, you know, angry when the bounds of a loss of data are violated, when the bounds of a law are violated. The SEC said here, it is three levels, while he said it that it is three levels of data to the to the rabbit

00:43:53--> 00:43:55

that is vital to the habit.

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

The first level is the value of the servant concerning that which was missed

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

yesterday due

00:44:06--> 00:44:25

to retrieve it were steadily Kufa make up for missing it, were to Doku to where, not where, or it is in some manuscripts Explorer, but this manuscript is two which means and mitigate the consequences of its loss.

00:44:26--> 00:44:49

So, an ibid is elaborate is a great thing, right worshipers servant of Allah and it does not mean that they are not serving a lot of sincerity, it is it is they are worshipping a lot of sincerity. Keep in mind that every Abbot is married Otherwise, there will be one alpha and every more you desire but otherwise they would be in the

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

but there is a difference between the morinda with the seeker and the worshiper. So the hobbit is the worshiper and Maria is the seeker

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

Every object has to be a marine has to be a seeker of Allah otherwise, if his intent other than Allah, then his iveta has an effect, and it will not count for him. And every marine must be a habit. Because if he does not serve a lie, if he does not comply with the Sharia and does not conform to the dean and does not serve Allah, then, you know, his seeking is under blasphemy, you know,

00:45:28--> 00:45:50

but when they talk about Abdul Murray, then they separate between the abbot and Murray the abbot would be what the one who has a greater emphasis on rituals and acts of worship and worried would be the one who puts a greater emphasis on he does all the acts of worship, but he's more putting more greater a greater emphasis on

00:45:51--> 00:45:54

the heart of the journey of the heart, the journey and by the heart,

00:45:57--> 00:46:01

the purification of the heart, removal of you know,

00:46:03--> 00:46:27

illnesses and flaws and faults from from the heart to weed out his heart in purify is our that is a Marine, but keep keep this in mind could have been a Marine, otherwise they are whenever and cooler more equal Merida, but otherwise they are done as Indians.

00:46:28--> 00:47:01

So, but there is greater emphasis in a better for the abbot on worship and there is a greater emphasis for you know on the more he puts a greater emphasis on, you know, the strengths of the heart and greater emphasis on curing the weaknesses of the heart. So, he puts a greater emphasis on humbleness as equality for instance, he puts a greater emphasis on you know, Maha Sabha self recognition and he puts a greater emphasis on the deeds of the heart

00:47:03--> 00:47:13

so the first level here is the habit not the more he then he says guidata Hobbit The general the protectiveness of the arbiter the vigilance of the iPad

00:47:15--> 00:48:06

is is concerning what the worship that he lost the service that he lost the good deeds that he lost he has started to die who said that he may retrieve it yesterday the via who may retrieve it whereas the medical provider homemaker permissioning it what is the difference between retrieve it and make up for it some things you can make up for some things you can retrieve and some things you cannot retrieve so you do have them but they're they're never like you know it's never the same so things you can achieve it like he couldn't make it to the ombre with his group you will make it to the ombre you know next month or next year and six months with another group that is retrieving okay,

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

but you

00:48:09--> 00:48:18

did not pray on time for some reason that said that is God he make up for he make up for it.

00:48:20--> 00:48:24

But let's say you did not pray on time out of laziness.

00:48:25--> 00:48:30

You can't make up for it. Like you lost the one day of Ramadan out of

00:48:31--> 00:49:00

without execuse without the proper executes Can you ever make up for it? You can never make up for the profits on some of them said let me see what daddy when sama then after a woman Ramadan whoever forever breaks the fast on one day of Ramadan he can eat will not make him up too fast the entire his entire life afterwards too fast his entire life afterwards not making them up, it's gone that day is gone, that the day is over.

00:49:01--> 00:49:04

That is why he said where the data

00:49:06--> 00:49:13

and mitigate the consequences of its loss. Because it is something that you cannot even make up for

00:49:14--> 00:49:28

something that you cannot retrieve like karma you make another ombre something you cannot make up for like missing the Salah because you are asleep or missing one day of Ramadan and or missing your word because your your particular word

00:49:29--> 00:49:41

that is not where did you know but but you missed it. But you made it he made up for it. But if it is something that you cannot make up for, for them

00:49:42--> 00:49:50

you mitigate the consequences of its loss. It's gone. you mitigate you repent, repent, you know when

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

he you know was rough with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not properly the prophets or something. I shouldn't say rough but

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

But he was resistant in Saudi Arabia, to the in the command of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that, go ahead. We're done.

00:50:12--> 00:50:50

Omar wanted to fight. He wanted to find the courage, he felt that the treaty was like, to their disadvantage to the disadvantage of the believers to the advantage of Christ, and he wanted to fight. And because he resisted the wish of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or he, you know, basically got into like a sort of a discussion with a prophet sallallahu Sallam about it was showed some resistance, he said, I continue to do things, you know, for the rest of his life, he continued to do things to to,

00:50:52--> 00:51:21

to basically mitigate the the consequences of this behavior of this conduct with the profits of the law isn't. So there are three levels here, one is the maker to redo it, if it is not a timed act of worship, and You can, you know, basically redo it, do it some other time, the second to make up for it. The third is to mitigate the consequences of its loss.

00:51:23--> 00:51:26

And maaseiah would be what

00:51:29--> 00:51:30

would be

00:51:31--> 00:51:49

you know, making up for it, but making up for it, you can't make it make up for make up for it in the sense of mitigating the consequences of doing it, like to do things that will erase the say, to do has an act that will erase the essay.

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

And then the sheikh said what data to

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

read. The second level is the ire of the seeker.

00:51:58--> 00:52:10

The parents who is the worshiper, the second is the seeker and every worshiper is a seeker and every seeker is a worshiper with the seeker is the one who puts more emphasis on their heart taking care of their heart.

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

Well, he

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

walked in to a car dealer

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

and he said the second level is the height of the seeker and that is concerning the time loss

00:52:23--> 00:52:28

when you buy an item container and it is a lethal virus so lethal Kira

00:52:29--> 00:52:31

it debilitates it

00:52:32--> 00:52:40

basically it wears them out debilitates them it is a lethal fatal Hydra, it hurts so much.

00:52:42--> 00:53:00

Why does it hurt to them worried so much that you know, because I'm worried for them worry that is not just about worship, it is about every breath that was spent in something other than seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala he says it's skyrocketed. It's a lethal era.

00:53:01--> 00:53:13

Doctor because time is what Hey, you know, what, Hey, y'all another quick quick labs. What Halo means means temperamental

00:53:15--> 00:53:43

time is temperamental, and is is he's trying to do like a representation of an abstraction here. Because they used to deal a lot with their beasts of burden, you know, their horses there, you deal a lot. So, an example that will relate to this will be easier to understand. So he is trying to basically make sort of

00:53:45--> 00:54:04

some similitude here, between time and a beast of burden. The beasts of burden can be described as well hey, you will rather quick to get angry meaning temperament and a temperamental horse, you know, at temperament that horse, but in this sense, you know, hey, you're

00:54:05--> 00:54:38

in some other manuscripts where Hey, you cut the which means quick to labs. But at the end of the day, even according to this manuscript, quick to get angry, a means quick to lapse, quick to labs, have the use of a eugenic means difficult to manage, you know, difficult to manage saw boredom, Eros. In other words, difficult to manage time is difficult to manage. It's like a horse that is temperamental and

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

difficult to manage.

00:54:42--> 00:54:55

But to you rujuta, which means slow to return. He does not mean here that time is slow to return because time never returns. What does he mean?

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

He means that the hell that you have with us

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

certain time from which you drop from which you have fallen, is hard to get back to the have the state, your spiritual state here your relationship with Allah, like you get to a certain point at certain step

00:55:19--> 00:55:29

on the stairway to Allah subhanaw taala you get to a certain step, and you slip, and it is so hard to get back. That is but

00:55:30--> 00:55:41

it is slow to return that state that you had at one point. That's the that you had when you were 26 years old before you got married or before you got married.

00:55:43--> 00:55:56

But a particular state that you really enjoy the particular peak of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala and he's snipped from it. And he keeps on trying to go back and it's hard to go back. Keep in mind that

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

certainly perfection is hard.

00:56:02--> 00:56:12

And to move to move from like 75% to 80% is harder than moving from 70% to 75%. Right.

00:56:14--> 00:56:31

And when you slip from 85% to 80% going back to the 85% is is hard, it's not easy. And that's what he means by this, like, hold on to your state hold on to your place.

00:56:32--> 00:56:38

Because if you slip return is not easy, and will be slow.

00:56:39--> 00:56:54

And then he said well there are 230 savedata latifi Allah I gotta have it in the third livid is IRA of the IRF concerning an eye sight covered by a veil, eye in

00:56:55--> 00:57:20

concerning an eye sight covered by a veil. What does that mean? It means that you had a grasp of the truth of a man the truth of a man you had a grasp of some of them to the point of certainty of eyesight, but then

00:57:22--> 00:57:25

you're you is something happened

00:57:26--> 00:57:27

and then

00:57:28--> 00:57:36

thin layer covered them. So now you are reaching for them

00:57:37--> 00:57:48

with some ease, it's not like eyesight anymore. You have the certainty of eyesight, concern concerning some or all

00:57:49--> 00:58:03

the truth of email and now the veil there is a veil between you and them and that veil is caused by you know your own failure

00:58:06--> 00:58:10

was there in Russia in so I

00:58:11--> 00:58:31

was searching Garcia Orion and enter a state obscure device mage and enter sir usually they usually use Sarah 34 to one of two things Sarah could be Sarah mean secret when they use Sarah particularly in that phase which is the face of

00:58:32--> 00:58:36

the either mean the innermost part of the soul

00:58:39--> 00:58:53

the innermost part of the soul or the mean a state that is between you and Allah that no one else knows of. You remember that young boy

00:58:59--> 00:59:27

he had this surgery with a loss of God he had this sort of secretive relationship it's like private relationship private state with a lot of other private connection he called the you know communication he had this private communication with Allah subhanaw taala and he was protective of it. He is protective of it so that is what the talk that's what they mean by Sir and that's probably what Sarah means here.

00:59:28--> 00:59:33

So it's an inner state a private interest state that has been

00:59:35--> 00:59:43

sort of polluted by smudge and then whenever Sinhala Raja how interpret a lotta

00:59:48--> 01:00:00

so part of the idea of dieting and dieting is yes, as we said before it can be translated as gnostic but we prefer to use it because of the negative connotations of

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

The word gnostic, but it is the knower, the translation of out of nowhere. It's the one who has the knowledge, the inner knowledge of the heart, that is the, the true knowledge reformative knowledge, not the knowledge of the tongue or the intellect, not the knowledge that he speak of, or even the mental convictions, but the knowledge of the art that is reformative or transformative, that actually changes you that makes you a better person that is alive.

01:00:32--> 01:00:48

Whether that is modifying And the final one, never scenario coverage, I will definitely lock and a breath that want to hope or looked for prizes, early coverage, a breath that clung to hope,

01:00:50--> 01:00:59

solid coverage, I will tap into a lotto or look for prizes, looked for rewards, you know.

01:01:02--> 01:01:37

What does he mean by this he means that like every breath, in every breath that you take, your ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah, near the school Allah, the love of Allah subhanaw taala, lovey Allah loving you. And if you are looking for short term gains or immediate gains, or anything short of this, we said and then as a different thing, because agenda is backup. ibaka Allah and agenda is the word of Allah that He basically wanted us to seek. But

01:01:38--> 01:01:53

looking for a certain term, free word, or even looking for agenda without being cognizant that the best thing in general is you're near the store love. The greatest thing in general is you're beholding

01:01:55--> 01:02:18

as you're beholding of Allah. If he if he if you're thinking of the agenda, if you if your breath if you spend your breath, thinking of agenda without this being the dominant feeling without this being the dominant thought, the ultimate pursuit the ultimate objective or goal is nearing this to Allah the pleasure of

01:02:20--> 01:02:27

be of Allah be pleased with you. And you'll be near to Allah and be holding a lots of pinata.

01:02:28--> 01:02:39

And you're thinking of, you know, totally in or you're thinking of, you know, the rivers of this or rivers or fruits or this or that, or whatever it is.

01:02:41--> 01:02:43

Then certainly that is a breath.

01:03:02--> 01:03:06

pinata Allah and the love of Allah.

01:03:07--> 01:03:09

protocol, you have a structural audio that comes

01:03:12--> 01:03:17

with a console, I will take seven minutes and we'll take 10 minutes and come back
