and so on and today we will have bubbles so core the station of self chapter of itself or the station of itself which is yearning or longing.
And in fact, we would have the chapter on run or mortgage security deposits. First the moment, Allah tada who died in the year 481. After seven is Bookman as at 18.
Under Bubba show chapter of yearning for love, gentlemen, can I believe in the law
called the law so gentlemen, can I do the power of belief in law?
Allah Almighty said, Whoever should hope for the meeting with Allah.
The meeting with his Lord is going out to the public even
for the meeting with Allah. Indeed, the term the term decreed by Allah is coming.
Indeed the term decreed by Allah is coming.
the appropriateness of this is obvious whoever hopes to meet Allah subhana wa Tada. Certainly those who hope to meet with Allah subhanaw taala are
having shock or yearning to Allah subhanaw taala.
Then the SEC started by defining itself and he said, and so coo boo boo kalbi lava.
Shell boo boo boo, be a lover and yearning is the gusting of the heart towards someone absent, crashing Gustin crushing
words, hubbub also could mean staring, the staring of the heart yet, for he has a method called bore the staring of the heart,
who barely has the grasping of the wind.
The sense would be the rushing of the heart to tour
or the staring of the heart towards Allah.
So who will be here? Is the gusting of the heart towards someone absent when someone absence? That's the definition of not necessarily a Sokoto, Allah subhanaw taala. But in general, when you are most, when you're longing go near yearning, you're yearning for someone who is not present.
Someone who is absent.
That is why I shared them immediately said where he met Happy, happy
to showcase zema
in the shelter in nama Khun Ella Madhavi Pamela Shahada,
he said, this community, to this community of the seekers,
the defect in yearning is enormous, because yearning is for someone absent, but the path of this community is based on beholding him. How could you be more stuck to Allah? How could you have yearning, when you are beholding him? When you?
You when you see him by the eyes of your heart, by your heart? How could you be yearning, the way of this community is is based on beholding on you know, the
So therefore, so then, as a defective station or a station that has a defect,
because the show is expected of someone who's not someone who's yearning for someone absent? And if you're yearning for someone absent, then you're not in an era where he had a 400 is that you're not in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala How could you be in his presence and longing for him or yearning for him?
Well, that's what the chef said. And keep in mind that a chef of this
greatness and this Macron
you always want to understand even if you will not agree completely with him.
You always want to understand what he's trying to tell you to benefit from what he's trying to tell you.
There is, you know, certainly some point in what the chef says here, that the more you, you know, that in this dunya, some people can have a degree of showed a degree of beholding of the Lord with their hearts, that makes them in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala all the time, however, we have to pause and reflect, is this presence is this presence?
Is your presence in the habit, like your presence in a line the Hereafter is your beholding of a law by your heart like beholding the law in the hereafter engine?
By your eyesight are the different we have the audio and then our you know, the measuring stick here.
The ultimate reference here will be at MB animosity, because no one reached there. Position no one reached their status, let alone exceeded their status or surpassed their status. Right. And if you when you find someone like you know, one of audience,
one of their greatest resolve that is one of the five best in fact, according to the according to many of our hedison He's the second best the most as the second best. They put them even before Rahim Allah His setup, and according to many of us, so never aim would be the second best. You know, it's a controversial issue. But
but but, you know, second best third best, we're talking about the third best human being the third best of the last creation.
And the set to a lot of the irony Andre, like, oh my lord, allow me to see you. So, I don't think that anyone any added gnostic or a knower, you know, having the knowledge of the interior, the inner knowledge anywhere they
have exceeded or surpassed the status of Musa even before he spoke to Allah subhanaw taala you said a
And if that great messenger wants longs for the beholding of Allah subhanaw taala with his eyesight, with his eyesight, then certainly, we cannot claim that we will have no yearning for Allah because we already behold Allah subhanaw taala because it's a different type of beholding, and that is why the prophet SAW Selim and a hadith imported and an essay a part of the supplication of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was Anoka that another you know what he was? selca Eggman de la madera what a fitness model and I ask you
the pleasure of looking at your face and meeting with you shall pay the lip out to have the longing for the meeting with you. Monica de la madera. Fitness in model without harm or without
harmful hardship or you know, the harm of hardship or misguiding trial or a misguiding trial. So, in so we will have to go back we'll have to go back and say you know that we love the shea
butter hahaha boy Elena Minho, but the truth is more beloved to us. So, soap is
a station of an RFP showcase devastation of alodia so was the station of the NBA than they had sell for a loss of Hello, Tada. And there is no
comparison between seeing, beholding Allah with the eyes of your heart in this dunya and beholding Allah in
general, with your eyesight. So May Allah spirit Allah make us of those who are granted both.
Then the sheikh said when he has he landed on Yom Kippur an bisman.
For this defect, you know the defect of this, you know the defect of the female
Until the shock is, you know yearning for someone who's absent allies present.
When you have the the LLM young Qur'an bismi for this defect, the puram did not mention its name
did not mention the show,
but this one I mentioned it right. And this one is you know from Allah subhanaw taala through the prophets of Allah is Allah
and the prophet SAW Selim used to ask Allah subhanaw taala to give him shell to
the meeting with him. The idea here is, we have to understand that Allah subhanaw taala is not absent, when I can walk into him inhabited, worried and we are closer to him than his jacket or vein or you know, habited worried whatever, usually translated as a jacket or vein, it may not be it is, you know, a vessel in the neck, which you wanted is different, I mean, controversial, but, but we are closer to him than his jugular vein as Allah subhanaw taala is near Allah is not absent.
So, what is it? How could a loved one without a be this near?
And dear still longing for him here?
He's near. And then not only that he's near he's also a vampire, isn't he? That is what that means. What that means what
it means the outward, the manifest, the outward, the manifest,
the outermost, the manifest, how could be How could he be the outermost manifest
and you're longing for him?
The idea here is that there is no hijab on Allah subhanaw taala because he's the manifest, there is no hijab, on the loss of Karnataka there is no veil
on a loss of Karnataka that covers a lot because he's manifest than any you know, you know, the whole discussion about the existence of God and is, this discussion to the light of Venus is just ridiculous, because he is the essence of existence, you know, your existence is just a contingent upon he is the essence of existence, he is existence by necessity,
he is manifest in this regard. However, the hijab is not on Allah, the hijab is on your eyes, you know on your heart, and that hijab cannot be completely removed in this dunya
Yes, it can be partially removed in this, the hijab can be a particularly for a lot of female Odia the hijab is you know, greatly removed from their heart, so that they can be hold the loss of Allah tada was that hard, but for the hijab to be completely removed, that is to behold the law with your eyesight in the hereafter.
Certainly longing for yearning for this
is not defective and it is a high station
station of not only it earlier but also then via customer selling
then the CX
is have three levels of data to shampoo liability in
America if you were franchisee no wild, feral, middle are
fused if you stop the news
the yearning of the servant to paradise for the fearful to find security the distressed to find joy and the hopeful to find their goal or their objective their price.
So, the gravity the journey the yearning of the servant to paradise, the amount of effort the fearful to find security, whatever has been the distress to find joy. Well, Ahmed and the hopeful to find their prize. He will divide the cow for the three levels like usual.
The first level is the colorful added the second will be a COVID Marie the seeker the rabbit is the worshipper.
The second is Marie the seeker The third is an artist the the the one endowed with the inner knowledge of where they live.
The person who has advanced, you know, on the journey to Allah subhanaw taala, the vanguard,
the elite, for the most elite of the elite.
So when when he starts by lrB, that I bet is his longing for agenda. Lab. It is basically, an as we said before every ARB it has to be more than this in some extent, and every marine has to be armed with avid who is not a marine is more
habit who is not seeker, a worshiper who is not a seeker of Allah is one effort. Because, you know, a seeker, someone who wants a lot of desires, Allah works for a lot smarter. alive, but who's not a seeker is when Africa when the seeker who is not Arab is as Indian, you know. So we have to be clear on this. However, there is a difference between someone who puts someone who has an emphasis on the exterior only. And marine has to be above a lab in the sense that he already did the exterior, he or he is already taken care of the exterior acts of worship, because you just can't travel by your heart and ignore, you know, Solman, salah and had Amara and Saba.
And all of that, you just can't you can say, I'm just doing my travel by the heart. I mean, doing the travel by the heart means that you have done all of this. And now you're not only doing all of this, but you're also paying attention to the diseases of your heart to the flaws of your heart, you're watching over yourself. And that has to be
has to be clear.
But an arbiter is someone who is
focused mainly on the acts of the exterior on the iPad that on the rituals. And he is not advanced in his travel to Allah subhanaw taala he has no, you can find all bad, who have issues.
You know, and sometimes great issues and you like you wonder, and you, it's not like you, you yourself, don't have issues, you have issues as well. But when you wander, but you wonder you really given yourself tired throughout the night in pm? And then Is this how you're starting your day, like you know,
they say something that is handy fitting or the that that basically shows some rivalry or some hazard or some this or that. And then you wonder, like, you've been in pm throughout the night, you know, you have been
you know, have you been also crying was a recitation and all that, how come you're not paying attention to this? How come you're not watching your heart? How come you're not watching your time.
So, you know, you understand it's understandable that the lab it could be advanced in his iPad, in his work, job, in terms of the rituals, but still, you know, a beginner on this on the journey to Allah subhanaw taala by the heart. So it is understandable, and we appreciate the delineation that the chef wants to make, and we appreciate what he wants to tell us. But we all were also aware that every albinism worried in some, in some sense, and everyone worried is odd as well. And we're also aware that you know, longing for agenda is not defective. longing for agenda is not effective. And we've talked about this before. So I do not want to spend too much time addressing the point that
God didn't happen in a coffee or Raja, the strip Maha bathroom call for a day or two to basically purify my habit from the impurities or the smudge of Salford Raja, in this in that sense, the MP you know,
is a concept that that is valid to an extent you know, when the Messiah You know, when the masters of the past point these things out when they talk about the jury they have to purify your muhabba your love of Allah subhanaw taala from
from anyone's from fear and hope from anyone's
we want to understand what they're trying to say we want to understand that they're saying that a lie is most deserving of your love and Allah would be deserving of your love without agenda not would be deserving of your worship without agenda.
That ingen. And if you compare them to, you know, if you compare the joy of being an engineer to the joy of being with a las pinata and the riddle of Allah subhanaw taala on you, and beholding Allah subhanaw taala and Jenna fades out, and certainly you know it in your heart, if you're thinking about, like we said last time, or maybe a different time, if you're thinking about, you know, the hereafter if you're thinking about what you're going to eat, and what you're gonna do in the agenda and stuff, and you're not longing for the meeting with a loss of Hanukkah that is utterly defective, obviously. And then also, we talked about technicality. You know, the people that are bad, they're
counting the, you know, the how many hats and then that's why they get hyper technical, you know, can I you know, and I got a, like, a question yesterday from like, a relative, you know, can I give sadaqa on behalf of someone who died? Yes. Okay, how much do I need? Like, you know, do I get also some of this? So, yes. Can this be on behalf of more than one person? Yes. If, and then if that happens, is it going to be divided? Is the world going to be divided? between all those people? Yes.
you know, allows Greg graciousness is is enormous, just Just do it.
Just give this, give it on behalf of the people, and then follow my answer, you know, Allah is most gracious, just do it. But this is what the abbot does, you know, it is is like, you know, you know, get out, get your calculator out, then sit down and figure out how much everybody gets.
But that is a concept that is a valid concept that the Messiah, the masters of the past want to point out, it is a valid concept,
does not mean that we're not seeking the agenda. It does not mean that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was saying how long Meadow then then that's all our chanting about, you know, asking a lot for agenda and seeking refuge in Him from the Hellfire when the Prophet said this, it does not mean what some of the seekers say that he was talking to us at our at our level, because that will be somewhat deceptive. You know, the prophet was on the speaks the truth all the time. It's not like he's talking to us at our level that he will say other than the truth, saying anything different from the truth? Yes, he will. He talked to us at our level, but but he said the truth always.
And that is important to know, when the shifts moved from the level of elaborate to the level of intermediate or the level of the seeker the one who's journeying now by the heart and the shell of the marine is different from the shell COVID ibet. The shell COVID Marina is to Allah subhana wa tada You know, he has shell to Allah.
the chocolate, let me say it right now. So his Soca, two and a la is much greater, much dominant, much you know, in his heart. That's the dominant feeling and his heart is greater than his job, too.
So the she said here, and then.
And then Angela, and the third level, we'll talk about how the COVID life would be different. She said here with nara 230. So ilala first chakra lab in agenda, the second chakra Eliezer.
The yearning to Allah.
which is sown by the love and love the young Buddha have fetid minion, the love that grows on the banks of the bounties, you can imagine the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala and his favorite like rivers, on the sides of the river is the hub grows, love grows. And then this lab results in a show, you know at the root of all of the stations and Bismillah while we're in Portsmouth, Ohio, right, this is the seventh section of Bonanza city. We are in Station Number 163 sharp 63 we have 100 stations, 10 sections, you know, the seventh section, the one that we are covering now is
the section of the states and the section of the states. What is number 61
The first section, the first station in this section of muhabba love. So basically a person that I when it all sprouts from inhabit at the root of asthma while the states, the inner states is in habit. The second one was an IRA that we covered last time protectiveness IRA protectiveness and now we're talking about the self self also grows from him.
to 30 years old, as a journalist, help Bolivian but Allah have fatted minute for Hanukkah, boo boo Fatima condesa festa
de la if economy way it very well me family. So the yearning to Allah which is sown by the heart, by the love that grows on the banks of the bounties, so the heart clings to his holy attributes, and then yearns to his kind generosity, the exhibitions of his bounty, bounty, bounty, isness boundlessness, the exhibitions of his boundlessness and the Garland's of his graciousness. So the heart is clinging to his kind generosity, the exhibitions of his volunteers, and the Garland's of his graciousness, it is a yearning that is, and then he describes
the yearning a little bit more. So when he said that this is that this grows from,
you know, grows on the banks of the bounties. Basically, what you're beholding here is the men and the name of Allah subhanaw taala you're beholding the favors and the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala. You're beholding mainly Sephardic Jamal in this station.
You know, the attributes of beauty, you know, the generosity, the graciousness, the mercy and would, you know, I do man arahi carry, you know, I don't have the, the, you know, the the attributes of beauty, the attributes of generosity and graciousness, these are the attributes that you are beholding and when you are beholding them
when he says a year.
So, the heart clings to the His holy attributes he means particularly the attributes of beauty, he means particularly not the attributes of might or rigor, the attributes of
majesty might trigger, not those attributes, but the attributes of beauty are the ones that are being be held here in this state in this level. And then, you know, when you hold those artery when you behold those attributes here into his kind generosity, the exhibitions of his boundlessness the garlands or the flags, the science, the you know, of his graciousness.
So, then he will talk to you about what he sees as the problems of this level. The problems of this level is that this is a shelf that still can be
this is a shelter that will not get you to where the chef wants to go, you know, find out which is fun elation, and will not make you dissolve.
It is not you know, potent enough to make you fade out to make you vanish. It is not potent enough that he will tell you
Step Step. Step set means it cools it off, it brings down the temperature brings down the heat, and
here would be the boundaries of a loss of power. So basically
it's like advanced payments. It's like you're giving when lots of
you know bestows you bestows as bounties on you and He bestows so many bounties on you, he is always bestowing his bounties on you. You woke up today and you were able to walk here everyone here some you know some did not but the people who did not be woke up and they were able to see their kids bounties, enormous bounties always Allah subhanaw taala emerges in his bounties. So, the idea here is you and you're immersed in the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala it cools off the show. Like you're comfortable, you're you're okay, you're fine. The longing for the Hereafter is cooled off by you know, after all this life is not that you know, it's good things are good. I'm enjoying, you
know my life or enjoying it to some extent
And so on.
But certainly the opposite is not true of people who are depressed and anxious. That does not mean that they are in higher. People who hate their lives does not mean that they're in the higher level. You know that they feel their love of Allah even though they wouldn't be immersed in the boundaries of Allah subhanaw taala but the love of Allah is what makes them long for the meeting. It is what makes them say sometimes no cannot no no to bear for soup. Let's try to if that is so is, you know is like suddenly sold in the market I would go and buy it.
Josie reports this from like, a woman like
a woman worshiper.
But like we said before, you know what type of network the same is what we should be saying.
Whatever is more beloved to Allah is more beloved to us. When he decides that we go then then that is what that's what we want.
Look at use of Allah is the use of say, you know,
for a Muslim or happening beside him when they threw him in the, in the well. The the Saito film seminar, it was sort of hidden when he got into jail. No, when did he say it was not happy with sort of hate? Because I had a 31 column tournament that we did a hadith for
dentro de juniata the 30 Muslim are happening with sleight of hand. Oh my lord, you've given me everything you know, what can you talk me the interpretation of speech and dreams and so on and
leave your Mecca stolyarov my guardian in this study and they are after the Fetty Muslim.
Meanwhile, as a Muslim will have never saw the hater let me join the righteous, he said this when he had everything. So that is you know, it is not that basically people that are tired of their life. People who are tired of their life or somewhat displeased with the destinies of Allah subhanaw taala
are somewhat displeased with Allah and displeased with the upload of Allah. So certainly someone who is wanting that because of this is is a sinner.
But those people are he they want
they went and they wanted for
further show, you know, be you know, to
to reach their
And then he said the sort of sad about it is is the by the bounties what to college masar and mixed with joys mixed with the joys of dystonia to college Masada mixed with the joys of the joys of dystonia could be a distraction, you know, Allah, Allah gives you and gives you and gives you and
the joy is in dystonia could be a distraction from your ear, focus on Allah subhanaw taala and your attention to a loss pinata while he hits the bar. So the bar masar oil coffee, here's the bar, when you come here is the bar and mitigated by patience mitigated by patience or
it means that
that you could be patient with this type of show.
This is not the chapter that I will talk about in the next level, he wants to say this is not the show that I will talk about in the next level. Because that chapter that I'll talk about in the next level, no one can be patient with it. It it it dissolves, you
know it completely
annihilates like your ego, and your your sense of existence.
But, but yeah, this this is a shock this type of shock is basically a result of the Giulietta as mad hasna as
it's a step forward from the South COVID COVID, who's focused on you know, his rituals and the payment
but certainly it is short of a show COVID irif who is not limited to the Julian Asma but he had
moved beyond this to his show is to as is to Allah himself to the that of Allah.
And he said what 30 to 30 Sanatana Dharma has a habit. The third 11 is a fire that is kindled by the
purity of love. Now Ron, you know see that his description now, this dadada he you know, up until now, it was shocked that you could still handle
that we are you know able to handle or you know the people who are above us are able to handle it still joke that that can be handled.
But this show that that is in the third level you cannot handle the show you like the longing, the yearning, the wants, the desire for the meeting with a Lost Planet, Allah is like fire, this fire has been kindled the by the purity of love, the purity of love, he means here love that is not
polluted by any smudges. This is love of the death of Allah subhanaw taala love of the essence, the love of someone who lost their eyesight and their mobility and you know, their family and everything, but they're still in love with a loss. It is not at all about massage, it's not about boundaries, it's not about joy is it is about pure, pure love of Allah subhanaw taala the essence of existence, he is the essence of existence, how could you not love him, you know, the essence of our existence, the creator of this world. And think about think about it this way, there is so much that is happening in this world, there is a love, you know, tragedy and affliction and pain and suffering
and evil and all of that happening in this world. But it's not like even it's not like the best of all worlds, like Leibnitz said, but that the idea here is ultimately think about one thing, you know, and and just keep this in focus a lot created. This is the best of all possible worlds given the purpose of its creation. Right? Because it's the best of all possible worlds, given the purpose of its creation, the purpose of its creation, is that a group of the group of humanity some, you know, human beings, well then have infinite bliss and joy for eternity with Allah subhana wa tada
you know, in the hereafter.
to create all the trials in this world, to test them, to purify them, to elevate them, to make them deserving. You see the difference between the and is there a difference between?
Is there a difference between someone who worked for their money and worked hard for their money and then turn that in halaal artist, you know, honorable way, and someone who just inherited for someone who just found that the enjoyment of that money is different between it's different. So when you enter Paradise, a lot could have created us and could have gotten us into paradise, like Adam and Eve, you know, regardless of whether it's the same paradise or not, but But yeah, they went, they were in paradise.
So I'm like, and I've just gotten us into paradise. Why, why the trials? But is there a difference? I think there is a difference there there is an obvious difference, the enjoyment, the eternal enjoyment and paradise, when you know that you got here, not in exchange for your deeds, but because of your deeds, at least because of your deeds that you have gotten here. That is a completely different level of enjoyment. So Allah created this world, I created this in this world for that eventuality. If we're even eventually the good doors and the you know, the more I do, the worshipers of Allah Tada, those who are committed to the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala when they enjoy, you
paradise for eternity, you know, we'll be with a last minute here after for eternity. So the you know, the essence of existence or loss
and the the essence of our existence is deserving of love.
Beyond the attributes beyond the limited as well so far beyond the manifestations and the exhibitions, of the attributes, even the attributes of beauty, graciousness and generosity
He says it's not another masamune mahabis third live it is a fire that is kindled by the purity of love front row satellite antenna, it's boys, you know, living
those people are always wanting, you know, they're they're not comfortable in this world, they have this feeling of verba in this word stranger in this in this word world.
Loneliness was celebrated Salwa
eliminates solaces, it eliminates solaces you know, unlike the previous level where you know, it's up here is the bar, it could be patient with you know, everyone and you're enjoying the bounties and so on, set up at the satellite eliminate solace is like there are no solaces anymore, like you are so focused.
And you're you have so much to the meeting with a last minute Allah that there are no services no matter what you have in this dunya I have it all, you know, but now the funding was limited what helped me was solid. So what am unit
was in do not Lika what am unit Neha mas Xin doing a Lika and nothing comes up short of the meeting. And nothing comes up short of the meeting, nothing comes the show, short of the meeting with a loss of hanada so those people will continue to journey with their hearts,
with their bodies and their hearts, continue to journey to Allah subhanaw taala the continue to be consumed in that journey, absorbed in in that journey. And that's, you know, as far as we can,
yeah, as far of the station of finance that that is legitimate and valid. They are absorbed into the journey they are consumed into the journey.
They are not distracted by anything else, they are in
complete beholding of Allah subhanaw taala
and whatever that whatever happens to them in this video will not be a distraction will not be an impediment
and will not come with that fire or put out that fire in their heart.
That's the end of this.
Next would be cut up an anxiety
attack and we'll take 10 minutes and then come back for the next stations for the next
