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

Knock on the door sort of summer sort of on how

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

to proceed. we'll resume shallow Saturday classes here and after an interruption for one week, and today we will talk about bark, a distinction of bark from a miasma theory in a book written by Dr. mercola, who died in the year 481, after his widow, and we are

00:00:29--> 00:00:58

this is Station Number 69. So we are in the section of Well, Chris Miller, who is our the section of the state's inner spiritual states. And then we have permitted what I add, or what I add in the next one would be Christmas, what I add comes from what I do, which is to have intimate friendship with Allah subhanaw taala. And followed by first met haka, or the that section on the truth.

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

And that is going to be

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

from 81 to 90,

00:01:06--> 00:01:47

from the first station to the 90th station, and then passman, the Hyatt or the Christmas hour, the section of endings. And that's basically the endings of the journey. That's the last 10 stations and the journey. And as we said before, these stations do overlap, we cannot ever say that muhabba is not one of the final and highest stations, we cannot ever say that that accent is not the highest station innocence that was said by the prophet sallallahu wasallam to be the highest stations.

00:01:48--> 00:01:56

So there is certainly overlap between these different stations, and you don't leave a station to get into another one.

00:01:57--> 00:02:19

Last time we talked about mystification, the station of Ohio man or mystification. And we said that some of the stations that the chicken mentioned are not necessarily integral parts of the journey. They're incidental occurrences. Some may experience them some may not experience them. They're not required in and of themselves.

00:02:20--> 00:02:49

But they may be encountered on the journey to Allah subhanaw taala Bismillah where the section on the stage that we are on now starts with visit and have them which is station 61. Love to love of the divine love of Allah subhanho wa Taala station 61. The last one that we covered, or the last two that we covered that were somewhat related to each other, were the stations of

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

station Evan Herrmann is mystification

00:02:57--> 00:03:13

was the was the last one that that we covered. And prior to this was the station of bewilderment. And we said bewilderment and hanon are pretty sort of

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

connected interrelated.

00:03:18--> 00:03:22

And now we will cover the station of lightning

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

station of lightening the station of

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

lightning.

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

And you may wonder, you know,

00:03:34--> 00:03:46

about the name, but we will talk about the significance of the name and how relevant it is to the concept that the chief will set out to explain

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

concepts that the chief would set out to explain.

00:03:51--> 00:03:57

First shift starts with an idea from the Quran. And here he started with our Plaza del Palazzo del.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

Sol Palazzo della is.

00:04:03--> 00:04:14

Allah Almighty said when he saw a fire, when he saw fire, someone may say fire is related to lightning. But this is not this superficial.

00:04:17--> 00:04:22

It's not just about light and light, you know, sort of fire light.

00:04:23--> 00:04:58

It's a little bit deeper than this. When musala Islam, Moses alehissalaam was on his way back from meridian to Egypt, he encountered he saw that lightning that fire, he saw fire at a distance, and then he went to it. And then that's when Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him, that Archer there has Prophethood that signal the beginning of his profited. The shift wants to say that the beginning of an wilaya which will come

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

You know in two stations, that the beginning of it what I is ushered by or is inducted by signaled by

00:05:13--> 00:05:24

lightning, and then he will explain this. So just as much as that the Prophet Musa was signaled by him seeing the fire,

00:05:26--> 00:05:36

when you see the lightning, then you could be on your way to Allah, intimate friendship with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

And we when we come to the station, what I we will try to demystify whether

00:05:45--> 00:06:07

or not a motor home he has an own levina motor, what can we tackle? Most certainly the friends of Allah, the most intimate friends of a lot of Allah, at times translate to the saints, I prefer not to use these translations because of the negative connotations that could be linked to them. But only are the ultimate friends of Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

there will be no grievance for them.

00:06:16--> 00:06:21

There is no fear for them, nor grievance nor should they grieve.

00:06:22--> 00:06:29

Lavina Emanuel cannot support analyst Kanata described earlier as those who believed and were

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

conscious of God, yet to be conscious of God, God consciousness, piety, God consciousness.

00:06:41--> 00:06:56

So that's basically what it is. And every Muslim has a degree of what everyone who submitted everyone who said that I love law, the greatest word ever, the greatest statement ever, that you could say everyone who said that the law

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

has a degree of what, but certainly people vary in their way.

00:07:04--> 00:07:17

And there are wide differences between people in their life. Yet it is all about email and piety. It's all about, you know, faith and consciousness of God.

00:07:20--> 00:07:38

But we will come to talk about this inshallah. That's what the sheath meant when he mentioned that this particular verse, He saw fire, he meant to say that the introduction of this phase of it what I or you know, this part of the journey, there is some transformative experience

00:07:39--> 00:07:43

that will induct you into this phase of the journey.

00:07:45--> 00:08:00

Then the chef said al Barak and Baku, Baku Ratan Tata mala have deep roots in the food, he has a theory and Baku Baku Ratan Tata model AB de facto in the hood we have a prairie bark which is lightning

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

is an initial Spark.

00:08:05--> 00:08:17

But Cora is the the initial is sort of the initiation of something, the initial event, whatever it is, but here it is an initial spark bakura

00:08:20--> 00:08:28

high demand translate done man blows for the servant because a spark is it's understood from an initial spark

00:08:31--> 00:09:16

that invites the servant to set out on this road. It's an initial spark that invites the servant to sit out on this road. Okay, what does that mean? It means that it is, it is something that you say it's something that you experience something that you witness, a transformative experience a transformative spiritual experience, that you encounter at one point of your journey to Allah subhanaw taala that will make you choose the path of love in what I do, which is not sort of the ordinary work that everyone is doing. It is it is the it is what do you set out on the path of

00:09:19--> 00:09:27

complete dedication, complete devotion when you have dedicated your life to Allah subhanaw taala devoted your life to Allah subhanaw taala chosen Allah

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

as

00:09:31--> 00:09:43

not only here one rubber band one Lord, but your your your ultimate and basically in a sense only friend

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

only ally

00:09:47--> 00:09:57

innocence, which does not mean that you will not be friends with other with others. But when we come to the third phase, we will explain what this means.

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

Okay,

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

So, this is a transformative experience. And the reason why it was called lightning and the concept itself, you want to sort of figure out understand where the concept is coming from the reason why it was called lightning and he will talk about it as the initiation, that experience that transformative experience that will invite you to enter

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

the past to come in, to walk in,

00:10:30--> 00:11:11

to take the first step on the spiritual path of in one area, or intimate friendship with Allah subhanaw taala. So he will say, because we you know, remember him Kosmala while also we talked about it, what and what is to what to find? ecstasy is what it means is that intense spiritual experience, intense spiritual experience. That's our definition of words that you find that you encounter that is not basically invoked, and it is not heard. It is granted. you capture it, he captured it.

00:11:12--> 00:11:26

So what is the difference between wise dental bark, intense experience, intense experience? What's the difference? The Sheikh said, When for kobina, who were vain and wet the N word, the echo bothered the whole fee?

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

While barcoo popular hoof and what does that one barcoo is.

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

And the difference between it and the words are ecstasy,

00:11:38--> 00:12:01

which is the common translation, although it's not always about ecstasy, sometimes it could be a fear, because, you know, but anyway, that's the kind of translation of what's the difference between it and what ecstasy is that once the occurs after embarking on the path while birth occurs before it. That's what is a sustenance is a boost.

00:12:02--> 00:12:07

And Barak is a permission, but is an invitation.

00:12:09--> 00:12:16

And then he said without authority, and it is of three levels. So like I said, intense spiritual experience,

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

the difference between it and what is the what after you have already come on the path, you experience something,

00:12:27--> 00:12:37

you encounter those intense spiritual experiences. But that is an intense spiritual experience that invites you to embark on the path or set out on the path.

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

It's an invitation.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

But

00:12:43--> 00:12:57

it's called bark, it's called lightning. Because the be very brief, could be very brief, could be very transient. But at the same time, it's called lightning, to infer what

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

intensity intensity

00:13:04--> 00:13:19

as if you do need to be shaken as if you have so many darkness is surrounding you that whatever will pierce through those darknesses needs to be as intense as Barack see the clouds

00:13:21--> 00:13:40

in the sky, and how the buck pierces through the clouds in the sky. So the relationship here between this and the intensive spiritual experience is that you are We are surrounded by so many layers of darkness

00:13:42--> 00:13:52

aren't we, and without, without acknowledging that we can never sit out on this path. without acknowledging that I am drowning in darkness is

00:13:54--> 00:13:58

caused by so many things. most prominently,

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

egoism, most prominently, my self consciousness, versus consciousness, self centricity, versus God centricity. And then this ego blinds you that blocks your sight, from so many things. And that ego is not just simply your ego that is full of lusts and greens. That's, it's also full of biases. And those biases are not only your personal biases, they're also your

00:14:36--> 00:14:50

communal societal social sort of biases that you've earned from your surroundings. So once you have realized the soul so surrounded

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

then you could be on your way to dissipating those darknesses

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

But then you give an invitation, transformative experience, a lightning that will pierce through the clouds that will pierce through the darknesses.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

And it could be very brief glimpse of light glimpse of light.

00:15:20--> 00:15:26

But then the cost of ignoring those signs and I don't want you to be paranoid

00:15:27--> 00:15:38

because I want you to trust the last pinata and to always trust that you could always go back to him, he's returning he's the web. He always comes back to you when you go back to him.

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

But this is just for warning so that we are more visited

00:15:46--> 00:15:53

there could be as severe punishment for people who ignore the signals of Allah the cues you know the light

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

there could be severe punishment. You know, what's the worst punishment

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

you don't receive anymore.

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

The worst punishment is not the lightning will be withheld you will not receive any more you will not get any more.

00:16:17--> 00:16:47

And that's what was mentioned in Sora ham when you can have a data home or a home can be our Amara. One other home fee to Brianna him Yama hoon. What does this mean? It means we turn away their hearts and their sights. Their eyes turn away our hearts and their eyes camella me Amir will be here our Mara

00:16:48--> 00:17:05

for they have not believed that the first time because they've ignored it the first time we sent them a signal we you know, illuminated their way we sent them the light they did not want they ignored it.

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

Please stay state back. There abused What? What is it lust, greed, bias, arrogance. They just did not want to walk.

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

So that's it. We we will not send them any more light.

00:17:25--> 00:17:52

Come at me, we are Amara for they have not believed that the first time one of our own feet will be on me. And we will lead them on in their insolence. Wandering blindly, we will lead them on in their insolence, wandering blindly. This is the arbury Translation and it's pretty it's it's pretty nice.

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

So Canada's gonna be out tomorrow.

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

You know, the long run,

00:18:04--> 00:18:14

been one of the best companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and one of the most vigilant sort of companions of the Prophet Sal Sutherland.

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

He in on on his deathbed dadadada Lohan who was

00:18:27--> 00:18:29

okay, was repeating this verse

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

so many times

00:18:34--> 00:18:43

because that that was afraid that it is very possible that he will has his heart to start in the way.

00:18:44--> 00:19:00

How could you mean you are but the you've been praying? He have been? Yes. He was afraid that possibly at one point. I did something I ignored. You know,

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

the signals that were sent to me.

00:19:04--> 00:19:10

I chose misguidance over guidance at one point because of my greed, my lust, my bias

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

and my heart was tearing the way

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

and he certainly I should be anxious about it because of your heart is there.

00:19:20--> 00:19:31

The problem is when your heart is hurting the way you just can't figure out what's right or wrong about you. You will be that person that was described when he said fnz you know those who already ferocity

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

Fm enzian Allahu suwama de fora Hassan

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

you know, or,

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

you know, Behold,

00:19:46--> 00:19:57

I give the parable of the one who's bad deeds have been vilified, who's evil work. evil deeds have been vilified for him

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

to the point where they

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

See them as good or

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

they see is evil as good

00:20:07--> 00:20:27

and that is the that's the problem. The problem is when you're deprived of guidance, it's not how much work it's not how much learning it's not how much effort is just that you are wandering around blindly. And if you have been blinded by last minute it no matter how much work or effort or learning

00:20:30--> 00:20:41

you'd be doomed. So, the way out of this is what we will talk about the end which is to Allah subhanaw taala is to show more and more brokenness

00:20:45--> 00:21:27

to Allah subhanaw taala to show more and more factor more and more need to Allah subhanaw taala because he has it is very possible that many times you have favor the misguidance over guidance. It is very possible that many times you've made you have intently determinately made the wrong choice, wanting the wrong choice, because of your greed or your bias. Many decisions we make in our lives, many many decisions we make in our lives, from where we decide from where we live, to where we are, who we marry is so many many decisions we make in our lives

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

that

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

we may have

00:21:35--> 00:21:35

chosen

00:21:38--> 00:21:43

Miss guidance or guidance and ignore the signals from the last one oh Tyler. So

00:21:44--> 00:21:53

you just say that the only thing that you can do really is the show more broken so last minute Allah that He would

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

basically

00:21:59--> 00:22:11

send like send you another invitation you know send you another invitation to embark on the you know the past to him and

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

just change your direction because

00:22:17--> 00:22:30

that means turn away. If you return the way then no matter how much effort no it doesn't matter you're already walking in the wrong direction takes you farther from your

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

desirable destination.

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

Okay, so then the shave

00:22:38--> 00:22:41

starts to talk about the three degrees of bark.

00:22:42--> 00:22:45

Pat he says that Roger

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

Roger

00:22:49--> 00:22:57

ada minervois ada means like, like one final project is known so on barcoo

00:22:58--> 00:23:09

Marconi Alma home in Geneva, Fei nerja. The first level is a lightning that glows from the promises for the hopeful, thereby the servant

00:23:12--> 00:23:21

first exstrophy Abdu L. Kelly laminata. Finds little grants plentiful. Wire started loafie zero minute,

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

large bear and finds large burdens light

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

were stacked Li murottal

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

and find sour destinies sweet.

00:23:33--> 00:23:39

So basically the hopeful is the person who looks with the eye of hope,

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

you know, from uncanny out Judaica.

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

So when can I have

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

the ability to be

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

some consider this to be the most concise, more Heather, that you could give.

00:24:08--> 00:24:17

Because oftentimes, we know what this side has, and we just ignore it. From in Canada, the Carnaby who looks forward to the meeting with his Lord, for the

00:24:19--> 00:24:25

for the better to be heard and let him do good, and associate no partners and his worship of his Lord.

00:24:27--> 00:24:43

But, but the shape here is talking about the diligent, diligent, who's hopeful the detergent who's motivated by the promises the agenda, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala working hard. And when he's working hard, he's also aware that all of his work is nothing.

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

The burdens are so light, you know. So large burdens are like,

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Oh, you know, pay 2.5% of your savings. Light, very light. You

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

Know the praying five times

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

light you know who's fast

00:25:08--> 00:25:32

don't drink wine, no light but it saves you. So so the burdens are light and finds little grants plentiful and the grants of Allah subhanaw taala are great and plentiful. Who most of us most of us have the sort of have this reverse like the other way around. So the grants are low and the burdens are heavy

00:25:33--> 00:25:40

for for for most of us and this is the diligence server hopeful you're doing a bit

00:25:42--> 00:25:54

and then our destiny is he finds them sweet because they get him closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Now he can exercise patience he can exercise you know sub better and even show could

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

in the slums of hardship they get him closer to Allah tala near to him.

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

They make his heart more tender or her hearts more than there.

00:26:07--> 00:26:20

And then he says What better to Sonny, my own journey but what are the minjerribah this time, final hover. The second level is a lightening that sparks from the threats for the vision.

00:26:21--> 00:26:29

Thereby the servant first ducks up to eliminate them and finds all hopes short.

00:26:31--> 00:26:40

BB grows this interested in people despite their closeness while kabuki theater is served and desires to purify the innermost self.

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

So the first the first one was the dead agenda. The second one is the vigilant. First one is the hard working hob that the server is working hard.

00:26:56--> 00:27:04

Also watchful hobbies work also sincere. But this one is so vigilant. So concern has this

00:27:07--> 00:27:09

is fat, you know has this concern.

00:27:12--> 00:27:21

He sees that approaching all the time that he's he has all hopes are short. Now you know this.

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

He sees the

00:27:30--> 00:27:42

the eminence of that meeting is so eminent that his meeting with his Lord and so eminent when you when you feel it and so eminent

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

just

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

changes your life.

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

And then he said why as

00:27:51--> 00:27:55

a quarterback that grows this interested in people despite their closeness

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

and that does not mean that he will be aloof he will be discourteous, he will be

00:28:04--> 00:28:12

inconsiderate of people, absolutely not, is actually when you become this interested in them as the one you become most interested in them.

00:28:14--> 00:28:39

How is that? If you become this interested in them for themselves, you become most interested in them in them for the for their Lord, for your Lord. After all, they are his creations, they are His creatures. After all, you know you have so many obligations towards the towards the end, they are the creations of your Lord, they are the art creations of your Lord well.

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

We have honored that the children have added. So once you have lost hope that

00:28:47--> 00:29:14

you know in anything that comes from them, you don't need them. That is how you become this interested in them. Then you'll become most interested in kindness and being kind to them, dutiful towards them, you know living up to your obligations, living up to the expectation of your last demand the view concerning his creations that he ordered

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

and that he is most merciful to.

00:29:19--> 00:29:30

So, and this this this then becomes unconditional, with no contingencies, unconditional with no contingencies. Every love is conditional

00:29:33--> 00:29:37

except of Allah for Allah subhanaw taala it becomes unconditional.

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

You know love your parents.

00:29:43--> 00:29:49

You love your parents more when they're doing good things, you know, they happen out there,

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

you know, assisting you.

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

But then when your parents get older

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

and instead of driving you around

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

You drive them around, take them to the hospital, take them to the doctor, doctor's appointments, so on, have to take time off.

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

That love that was for your parents.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

Even if the love did not diminish,

00:30:22--> 00:30:26

I think it would diminish. Because ultimately the translation of love

00:30:27--> 00:30:34

is basically, ultimately, love is not just like an abstract universal out there.

00:30:35--> 00:30:43

It's about how we react, how you behave, about your conduct, but it will diminish, he will start to feel

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

a little bit of a burden,

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

particularly when they become sick.

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

And then they become senile.

00:30:56--> 00:30:59

And then sometimes they start to not make a lot of sense.

00:31:00--> 00:31:02

And they say things that are not that

00:31:03--> 00:31:06

not very sensible.

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

And they could live for 20 years like this.

00:31:12--> 00:31:19

And for 20 years, you have to be doing things for them. And working hard, taking time off, you know,

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

taking time from from your family, fun things that you like to do, people would like to go to the gym, I can't go because I have to take my this or that parent to the doctor's appointment.

00:31:34--> 00:31:38

So all love is conditional, lots of contingencies.

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

becomes a pure becomes unconditional, when it is ready for a loss of Renate.

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

If it is rooted in your devotion to a loss,

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

it does not fade out

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

regardless of circumstances.

00:32:10--> 00:32:45

And that does not mean that we're not going to be human beings and certainly like sometimes even you even have this, you feel the burden of when you have obligations to somebody. I'm not saying that we're not going to be human beings, we will continue to be human beings. But But when that Slava is for Allah subhanaw taala, it will put things in perspective and it will give us the energy to continue to be committed to continue to be beautiful, to continue to be loving and compassionate towards the our loved ones.

00:32:46--> 00:32:48

And then the CF said where we

00:32:51--> 00:33:03

were where a couple people here have desires to purify the innermost self. So, this is the vigilant now, versus the diligent, diligent was a lot of good work.

00:33:04--> 00:33:28

But this the vision and the start is starting now to purify the innermost self, starting now to pay attention to every move every statement, and to suspect themselves and to be critical of himself and to be critical of his or her motives, and intense

00:33:29--> 00:33:39

then this Excel data to satisfy berberian mom and Jana but lotfy identificar very good evidence a lightning that glows from the kindness

00:33:40--> 00:33:44

lots of kindness, for the broken thereby.

00:33:47--> 00:33:50

The car is the verb noun from Socrates when you have

00:33:52--> 00:34:01

need and you show this need to Allah subhanaw taala It is about poverty factors poverty, if the car is from factor it is.

00:34:03--> 00:34:17

It is basically when you have this experience of poverty, experience poverty, to Allah subhanaw taala your need for Allah subhanaw taala and everything. So, then

00:34:20--> 00:34:57

this battle of brokenness, this type of lightning that glows from the kindness of Allah subhanaw taala for those who are broken in need of him, thereby found she was a habit sudler generating clouds of joy, generating clouds of joy. My own little Petra, Tara, bringing down showers of euphoria, bringing down showers of euphoria why Audrina Hara left the car and causing the rivers of pride to flow, causing the rivers of pride to flow.

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

The rivers of practice

00:35:01--> 00:35:16

So this is someone and this is basically when when the person comes to Allah subhanaw taala counting on nothing, it's not diligence, it's not vigilance, counting gun, nothing, counting to nothing as an acid, you know,

00:35:17--> 00:35:18

credit

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

except

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

his poverty, or her poverty, that's the only thing I own. That's the only thing I present

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

to

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

my

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

acknowledgement of my poverty,

00:35:41--> 00:35:51

my needs, my brokenness, then then once you started to receive the sort of the

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

installments of kindness from Allah Subhana, WA Tada,

00:35:57--> 00:36:48

then you will, you will have those clouds of joy that would bring down showers before here. And that would cause the rivers of pride to flow. Now, this a little bit about this idea of if the car because it is related to it as an iminium, to car pride. It's related to lazy mania, which is human based pride, the pride that is produced from a man, the feeling of contentment, the feeling of fulfillment that the believer has, that prevents the believer from humiliating themselves, prevents the believer from humiliating themselves and gives them makes them feel full, satisfied, gratified. And they don't humiliate themselves. Because they don't need anything of anyone except the last one,

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

except that their Lord.

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

Okay, that concept of of the cloud and that concept of Fuck, in and of itself,

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

you have to understand

00:37:02--> 00:37:17

that maybe we don't even need to talk about that concept among ourselves until we get to that phase of FFR because this is the patkar of iftekhar. Have we reached the phase of after our brokenness,

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

to have that as to have the sort of mind

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

that pride

00:37:25--> 00:37:40

to deserve to have it? No, because because if the if the current use what is negative, is forbidden, is prohibited. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Ohio area, Anto had

00:37:43--> 00:38:08

what I have ha ha ha ha. Allah had revealed to me have inspired me that you should Humble yourselves. And then no one shows aggressions towards anyone that no one is disdainful or boastful towards anyone or no one shows aggression toward anyone for boosts anyone so that boasting the car means boasting to some

00:38:10--> 00:38:14

extent. So it's that boasting gets prohibited.

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

For it has to be a different type of boasting here.

00:38:20--> 00:38:23

What's going on Tyler in Japan and many variances in the law had a

00:38:24--> 00:38:57

hole in the wall a woman can make talent for hula Allah does not love those who are self, deluded and boastful. A lot does not love those who are self deluded or boastful. Allah does not love anyone who has self deluded and boastful so we should be should stay away from boastfulness, but it's the boastfulness of the broken just that will prevent him from you know, humiliating themselves humiliating their the in

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

being hypocritical.

00:39:02--> 00:39:12

compromising when they should not compromise will never make them discourteous will never make them hard. It will never make them arrogant

00:39:14--> 00:39:22

with anyone, anyone, anyone. They're not highly they're not arrogant, they're not discourteous.

00:39:24--> 00:39:28

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith

00:39:29--> 00:39:38

reported by southern terminus, the first by many from government, particularly Alon who, he said in a minute,

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

he said in the middle of a Rama,

00:39:43--> 00:39:47

Rama, Rama, Rama, la mina, Allah

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

Allah Bula

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

Bula

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

Bula

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

Unless you have Bala factorial or gradually enough set who are in the Patel tiara who sada

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

Allah Allah, Allah, Lupin faculty, ob.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

So the prophet SAW sermon said that, you know,

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

pray and that there is there is,

00:40:20--> 00:40:56

there is jealousy that a lot of is in jealousy, the light, there is pride of the loves and the pride of the lights. As for the jealousy that Allah loves, it is the jealousy that is warranted when there is reasonable suspicion, prevent reasonable suspicion. And as for the jealousy that Allah hates, is the jealousy that's warranted when there is no reasonable suspicion. And as for the pride that Allah loves, it is the pride in jihad in fighting the enemy. And the pride

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

you know, in animation, you will have a lion if you have a mountain,

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

it's this walk

00:41:05--> 00:41:16

is a walk through the lights except in this particular position, or take a situation of walking between the two lines it in the battlefield and

00:41:18--> 00:41:18

and

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

the person's person's pride the time so

00:41:24--> 00:41:35

how could you be proud when you have solo and then the shed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and as for the price of a lie hates it is the pride in backing in aggression and fast boasting?

00:41:37--> 00:41:40

What is this loves?

00:41:43--> 00:41:48

you when you confront the enemy when you're in the battlefield or

00:41:49--> 00:41:53

South Africa, when you confront your enemy, it's understandable.

00:41:54--> 00:42:04

But we're in South Africa, how is it? Well, the scholars from this to be a little bit difficult to sort of understand because

00:42:05--> 00:42:19

actually, when you are given savoca, you should really be so humble because you want to avoid men. And however you want to avoid those qualities harming the recipient of sadaqa.

00:42:21--> 00:42:54

By showing humbleness, by showing humility, when when you give soccer. And some of the rights predecessors used to give soccer like this Not like this, you know, so that their hand is the lower when they when the when they give it some of the scholars said that this is the the price that the recipient would have, so that they don't humiliate themselves. So if you're receiving silica, you don't act like you're sort of so

00:42:56--> 00:43:00

poor and destitute. You try to show that you're not.

00:43:03--> 00:43:14

You try to have dignity, will and not ask. And when you're given you don't show you're destitute needs to get more.

00:43:16--> 00:43:37

You show that you're good, I'm fine and good. That's the what the prophet meant, according to those scholars, but many times, it's hard to reconcile between this and the wording of the of certain reports. And it's clear that the prophets of Allah meant that the person that was given subaqua would have this Gala. And so those are the scholars said that

00:43:39--> 00:43:45

this is understandable. Because solokha is like a war with a shaitan.

00:43:46--> 00:43:57

It was it's better than here no matter what it is to give up. That which he loved the most was the art and teachers, your money, your wealth.

00:44:00--> 00:44:10

And you have to boast to the shaitaan the shaytan tells you no you're not up to this is you can't do that. And

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

I am up to it.

00:44:13--> 00:44:20

I am I am greater, I am better than this. I'm better than being miserly. I'm very bad at skipping this opportunity.

00:44:22--> 00:44:26

And then you almost you know how we emulate

00:44:28--> 00:44:30

the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala

00:44:33--> 00:44:55

You know, that's aside from the attributes that are only befitting of Allah subhanaw taala like him with a cup buttons a bar that can pillar in the crowd and so on. We are meant to model ourselves on those attributes, after the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala we are meant to imbibe those attributes.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Look at the footsy commodities are not any

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

Manny

00:45:01--> 00:45:27

Medina, for him, to have come to you on messenger from among yourselves as to, you know, he grieves over your suffering policeone alaikum he's keen, you know, he's keen on your benefits your interest, minion are over him he is kind and merciful towards the

00:45:29--> 00:45:46

believers are Ofra Haim are two attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah said that the prophet SAW Selim has those attributes, certainly not in the divine way, not to that divine extent. But yes, you imbibe those attributes.

00:45:48--> 00:46:35

And then you emulate them, to model yourself after the ultimate good pursuing the ultimate good, the ultimate good is God and His attributes are the manifestations of this goodness, all of those attributes. So, aside from the attributes that are befitting of the Divine, only the majestic, mighty attributes that are befitting of the Divine, only you want to do this, you want to copy as much as he can, from the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. So you both at the same time, he was the reason I am the one that labrys the soul into me, you know, you don't know me, I have much greater than this, you can't do this, you can sort of like pull off this strike on me I am greater

00:46:35--> 00:46:40

than this. That's boasting, boasting to the shaitan boasting to the shaper during this time.

00:46:42--> 00:46:52

And to add an end to overpower your, your weak self as well, you're nuts. So, this is another episode of

00:46:54--> 00:46:59

keep in mind sometimes, sometimes. We do think that

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

because it is it is related because we talked about a lot of harm.

00:47:07--> 00:47:10

Some people have the completely sort of

00:47:12--> 00:47:19

mistaken concept about this, is that when you deal with an unbeliever, you always have to deal with

00:47:20--> 00:47:21

might

00:47:22--> 00:47:34

you translate as mine? And you take it out of context. And then you have your own understanding of mine. And then you end up being Stern, rude,

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

discourteous.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

And is that

00:47:40--> 00:48:00

anywhere like is that anywhere conducive anyone in any way, shape or form conducive to good data, to leaving a good impression. So I mean, as the technology Caffery, which means humbled towards the believers, and then mightily proud, towards the other believers,

00:48:01--> 00:48:17

read them before and after they can text. This is a context of tilting towards the unbelievers of leaving given religion that's why the verse starts may or may not may or may after the nicomachean here for some fancy level becoming you have been born with Electro Harmonix

00:48:18--> 00:48:45

so you believe that the those of you who turn away from there the last second text, but if you want to figure out how the profits are some of them to the unbelievers, then you read how the profit is earned into them the believers and you understand that the prophet SAW Salem never held the equal someone likes to head up the hammer and someone like Oh babe and a fellow someone like you know,

00:48:46--> 00:49:29

and what time of day with whom the prophet SAW some of them showed reciprocity and even after bad that he said that the most of them not even alive because of what I'm allowed him into Mecca, give him two are protected him when he came back from five, have the most entrepreneurial been alive, I would have released although those captives if he just asked me. So just one word from a multiple, how we got released all those capitals, after all of the work they have done to the Muslims and the oppression and the killing and everything they have done to the Muslims, I would reciprocate with the you know, that kindness with more time and more time, have you been alive and he asked me to

00:49:29--> 00:49:30

release them and have released them.

00:49:32--> 00:49:41

So when I had even happened came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he was Christian. And he had the crush on him and everything.

00:49:43--> 00:49:50

And I even had him you know, and it's it's a long story, but it's a beautiful story. I've been talking to others report with this.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

But one of the things that may not even happen, realize that one of the things that made that even happened convert two things.

00:50:01--> 00:50:09

First thing is that the profit on his arm keeps on telling him things about him. Don't you do this? Don't you do that things that he only knows.

00:50:10--> 00:50:12

And then he said fall into unknown.

00:50:14--> 00:50:19

He said, I then realized that he knows what he does not know.

00:50:20--> 00:50:21

It's an

00:50:22--> 00:50:42

paradoxical era med knows that which he knows not meaning that he knows that which he has no access to know like, he has no capacity to know how could he know this? So once I have realized that he knows what he that which he is not supposed to know.

00:50:43--> 00:50:53

Then I figured that this is this is a different man. And then, but what really tempted him to, you know, to conversion,

00:50:54--> 00:51:02

was not that. But the prophets Allah is, you know, or maybe partially, partially that also. But then

00:51:04--> 00:51:15

his sister said to him go, he's either a prophet or a king, he's a prophet, you do this, can you do that? But don't miss out on meeting him. He's either profit or again.

00:51:17--> 00:51:40

And then, so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam spread out his affordable, spread out his garment for are they even having to sit on it. And then the Prophet sat on the floor. Because I've even happened what is the sun have happened with either wealthy that well off, the profits on some of them had this, you know, very humble, very modest room. So

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

he had, he was not expected certainly. And in some reports, it's really sad, it's like a Lexa, because surely, that he spread out for him where he handed him to sit on, and then

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

the professor's

00:52:02--> 00:52:04

sat on the floor.

00:52:05--> 00:52:09

So I'm able to have him sat and at that time, I recognize that he's not a kid.

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

And I recognize that he is a prophet,

00:52:22--> 00:53:00

someone who has all of this, you know, influence on his people, someone who knows that he is not supposed to do No, but at the same time, someone who is less humble, this courteous, this is not the behavior of kings, you know, I can go at night at least he would let you sit down close by, he would love to sit down on as sort of a similar seat or the similar seat, but he would not give you their garment to sit on and they sit on the ground. So, this is how he came to be this is this, this is basically how you deal with people to earn

00:53:02--> 00:53:05

and, and certainly that does not mean that sometimes, you know,

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

being

00:53:09--> 00:53:10

having dignity.

00:53:12--> 00:53:18

You always have dignity. This, this act of the prophets outside of this context is not undignified, this most dignified,

00:53:20--> 00:53:45

discourteous. It's kind, compassionate. He has concerned before I've even had them you want. What's best for me, doesn't mean I've even had it. He was much you know, at the time, he was coming to him. Because the problem was I don't have control over most of Arabia have he was coming to him, his sister told them they This is either a profit or again, you go to him. So this is not an act that is not undignified in any way. It's most dignified.

00:53:47--> 00:53:52

So the bottom line is, you know, dignity is that does not mean this courtesy.

00:53:53--> 00:54:01

Many times when you know the mayor or someone from like higher up in the FBI or something comes to the master and then you see people are

00:54:03--> 00:54:16

sort of like not knowing how to behave now. Some people humiliate themselves. And you figure that when you do this is just like you act a little too cheap like to just sort of hypocritical.

00:54:19--> 00:54:26

When you do that, you figure out that this must not be forever. This is not if the car left the car

00:54:27--> 00:54:34

and some people are Stern, to show there is he many of those people are misguided also.

00:54:35--> 00:54:59

Because it is about time of showing courtesy because these people are not coming and are not coming in sort of like Abuja and they're not talking to you like Abuja would have been talking to the Profit System even when the vagina talks to the processor, a profit the personal somehow determined forbearance and patience, but anyway, but you have to the figure out the difference.

00:55:00--> 00:55:16

When you know this, and that, and you have to have the proper motives and if you have the proper motive, that's the most important part, that is would find that that is the thing that will find to adjust your conduct, where it is not

00:55:17--> 00:55:29

part of humiliation and hypocrisy and need for other than Allah subhanaw taala and it is not at the same time, rude, Stern, discourteous repulsive,

00:55:30--> 00:55:32

you will be just right.

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

It would be if the heart lifted

00:55:37--> 00:55:47

the price pray and have the broken the pride of the person who has lead for Allah. And in this case, this Mayor could even be the president,

00:55:49--> 00:56:41

you will treat them as your poor creatures of your Lord, that were honored by him when he had the honor the children of Adam, these are the descendants of your father, Adam, these are human beings that are suffering, like you suffer. This person could be, you know, the Secretary of this or the prison of that he could just go home, you know, and have like an argument with his wife and have a bad day for the rest of the day. He's just like a poor human being, that has the same experiences and suffering like like you, this person could be, you know, the sort of the, what the Secretary of Homeland Security or something and receive a phone call from his doctor tomorrow. You know, your

00:56:41--> 00:56:51

colonoscopy shows that you have stage three cancer, right or wrong. You know, can I get a viral thing, a viral infection that the

00:56:54--> 00:57:09

poor human beings struggling there that the children of your father them, they're the creatures of here, Lord, you're being compassionate towards them, but not in an a, you know,

00:57:11--> 00:57:17

not in a way where you humiliate yourself or you humiliate your deed.

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

You will only do this

00:57:22--> 00:57:33

if you if you if you have some self interest. But if you're doing if you're being compassionate and kind and murderer and and extending and polite,

00:57:35--> 00:57:42

because of your because of your sort of Gods centric

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

motives,

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

you will never go wrong, you will always be right, you will always be fine tuned to the to the golden mean

00:57:58--> 00:58:14

proper behavior, the proper conduct, you will say the proper things, because your motive is the proper motive. Your motive is the best motive, which will manifest in your behavior.

00:58:15--> 00:58:23
