To proceed

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

welcome back after a break,

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

today we will resume our steps.

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

In this game, the first session will be on the scale like use rolling second on firm. And in this case, we are up to section number eight of the book. Now the book is in 100 stations each 10 cents each 10 stations make up one section. So we are done with 70 stations. So we're done with 70 sections. And we will start today the section on sanctities for Allah sanctities for Allah

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

under the section number eight of keytab mirazur serene Stations of the wayfarers

00:01:02 --> 00:01:03

pastored by

00:01:06 --> 00:01:15

Islam and how are we rocking malata who died in the year 481 haftar the history of the Prophet sallallahu his

00:01:17 --> 00:01:41

shift starts here the section on and what I asked by telling us about that particular section and the different stations that will be in this section we will have 10 stations in this section. He said this model is for Asha to avoid for a while work to safaga surah seru and FSO. One Corbett one Roku arriva to atomic con.

00:01:43 --> 00:02:30

The second round sanctities is comprised of 10 stations, noting timeliness, timeliness, clarity, bliss, privacy, breath, strangeness, absorption, absent absenteeism, or absence or absenteeism and establishment. So, a lot of is noted at work is timeliness is suffer is clarity soror is bliss, Sarah is privacy enough as his breath and orba is stranger in this allegory is absorption literally drowning absorption alga is absenteeism and the next con is establishment.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:37

Then the shift starts to talk about this particular station, which is station, the station of Allah.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:47

Station Number 7171. Out of 100 is a lack of or noting, noting,

00:02:48 --> 00:03:11

it could sometimes be translated as glancing or glimpse or something of that nature. The meaning of it is to be observant, it is to be able to take note or to take notice of things quickly and promptly and to reap the benefit of that observation. To be able to take notice

00:03:12 --> 00:03:19

of things quickly and promptly and to make to reap the benefit of that observation.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

A lot noting

00:03:25 --> 00:04:11

as usual, starts by verse from the Quran he said called Allah azza wa jal ons are eligible for any sakara mecanim for self karate, under illegible look at the mountain for Ennis Takara McKenna, who if it stays still, for self authority, then you're only only then you'll be able to see me and this is known that Allah subhanaw taala This is sort of an era where masala is around came to his appointment with a loss of power. Tyler has been a part of the loss of Renata. Patino kalama, boo boo palabra De Anza Li. when Moosa came to our appointment, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, Oh my Lord, let me look

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

at the unveiling light.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:21

Show me yourself, so that I may look at you today. Let me see you behold you.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

And then

00:04:30 --> 00:04:43

the Lord said, you will not see me but look at that mountain. If it stays still, only then you'll be able to see me. Allah Mata de la boda Jabari hora, Dhaka

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

Parramatta de la policia

00:04:55 --> 00:04:58

connoisseur productive to our fellow man

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

When his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain Giada Boudicca, he made it crumble for her moussaka and Moosa fell down in shock, but fell, and then when he woke up, or resumed consciousness,

00:05:19 --> 00:05:29

class of Hamlet, he said, Glory be to You talk to me like I repent to you for an hour. And I'm the first of the believers.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:36

So this is the context here. So why is the chef using this verse.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:59

And the chef is using this, this is a different type of law. By the way, this is this is the visual law of the this is the law of the ordinary taking note, for notice, with these eyes, the eyes of your head, not the eyes of your heart, the CFO in many talks about taking notice with the eyes of your heart, but they're close.

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

And he's he may be wanting to say that it's the same thing. taking notice with eyes of your heart, you know, the eyes of your head are basically a portal

00:06:14 --> 00:06:56

to the eyes of your heart, your ears, your eyes, these are different portals, so that you could get information and make, sort of take notice of things around you. But eventually, it is the taking notice by the eyes of your heart that matters, that will result in benefit. Because learning is by acquiring information, and listening to lectures, and observing with the eyes of your heart and the eyes, and the your ears and so on and so forth. The unreceptive but wisdom will develop, what do you become

00:06:57 --> 00:06:58


00:06:59 --> 00:07:55

Wisdom develops when you become observant with the eyes of your heart, when the information is process for a greater benefit, when you're not limited by the exteriors of the phenomena around you. That's what the chef wants to say. So Allah tala studying Moosa here, just take notice of what will happen to the mountain and learn from this, you know, bay, that would be the premise here, you know, the conclusion. And if that is happening to the mountain, then certainly it is beyond the Nikah, my capacity to behold the Lord in this dunya but beyond my capacity to behold the Lord in the study of hunger illegible look at the mountain fence the current mechanism of self authority, if it is stays

00:07:55 --> 00:08:22

in place, or if it should remain in place, then you will see me then the shift said, a lava lamp on more static or mystery. Well, however they have available as well as Roger la who are noting his lamp on more static, stealthy, or sneaky glimpse, or most captivating glimpse. So a lot of them have static origins.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:28

So basically stolen would be more static stealthy would be static,

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

most direct could be captivated.

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

Let's say it's a static lava lamp or more static lava is a stealthy glimpse, we hope you have a lot of knowledge. In this respect, it is of three levels in this respect, it is of three levels. So number one was set up as a stealthy glimpse. Why is he saying I still think lives why it doesn't have to be stealthy. Why does have to be sneaky, what it has to be quick, why not, doesn't have to be quick. Because sometimes you're you don't give a kid a chance.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:12

You know, you don't forget, you don't have a long time to take notice. If you don't take notice quickly, you're not gonna be given a long time to take notice.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:59

These are sparks that, you know, light up and then if you don't make you reap the benefit of them, then you lose that chance. You may be, you know, a candidate to have another one another chance but, but that one particular one you lost. So that's why it's still see, someone may say also because the highest object of observation here is the divine and the divine is the highest object of resonance of observation, then you will not be looking. Longer earrings are going to be staring out of what reference just like Amazon allows us to say I'm not going to amlo Meanwhile, I did not use the stairs.

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

The purpose was I can describe the profits or send them to you because I could not stare at him out of reverence, Atlanta, out of reverence. So a lot of what I'm from was that a lot of is a stealthy glimpse, you don't get, you know, a lot of time to take notice of things. If you don't take notice promptly, if you don't accustom yourself to take notice quickly, of

00:10:29 --> 00:10:32

learning from the lessons that are sent your way.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:40

Every time across the path. Every time you cross the path of each other, we can learn from one another.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:48

You just you can learn all the time being observation is what the baby and observant

00:10:49 --> 00:10:59

is what will earn you that wisdom. So you could learn all the time we were talking yesterday about demand a man and how he was teaching the car at age 22.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:07

In the Umayyad mosque, age 22, you know, during his time, late in the seventh century, after hedgerows,

00:11:09 --> 00:11:28

Damascus was the hub of scholars, hundreds of you know, your tier one scholars 1000s of scholars, hundreds of your tier one scholars would have lived in Damascus during that time. So to be invited to teach the CNF there's a lot of drama in the Umayyad mosque, which is the Grand Mosque of Damascus is pretty telling

00:11:29 --> 00:12:13

of his status and knowledge. But he spent his entire life afterwards, trying to learn the meanings of those basically trying to, you know, to be observant, and take what acquired insight into the meanings of those to go out to the wilderness, he would go out to abandoned mosques, and ask Allah subhanaw taala to unlock the meanings to him of the verses. So it is not just the you know, having the knowledge, it is also being able to benefit the process, the knowledge to take notice of the information and to take notice of your various experiences in this life and various observations in this life, of all the phenomena around you.

00:12:16 --> 00:12:44

So that's what a lot of is about. And certainly things would overlap. And we would do, we are going through 100 stations, and like I said before, the stations would overlap, and some things would be repeated. And that is fine, because repetition is helpful for us to sort of for the information to sink in and to be processed. And for us to remember the different concepts that we talked about. But in the next 30

00:12:45 --> 00:12:56

stations, there will be you know, because certainly in the beginning, there are a lot of new things that we're learning. But in the next 30 stations, there will be a lot of repetition.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:10

But like I said, what we're trying to do here is that this, this heritage indispensible heritage of the South that we cannot afford to ignore,

00:13:11 --> 00:13:17

because of many deviations that took place, and in that discipline, or in

00:13:19 --> 00:13:38

and the different sort of orders that branched from it. Like I said before, we're taking the sort of the pure at the soul of alginate, and coffee and subtlety, and the study and, and currently masters of the past.

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

We said that we cannot afford to ignore that heritage. And eventually we cannot afford to sort of do away with it, because it's entrenched in our heritage.

00:13:52 --> 00:14:10

Even the name we cannot afford to do away with, it's entrenched in our heritage. So what we have to do is to demystify it, is to check it against the parameter of the Sun and the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companions as the sort of our highest reference point. And

00:14:11 --> 00:14:41

to find excuses for the masters of path who may have arrived at one point, and certainly to benefit, mostly, you know, so you're embracing the heritage first. It's not like you're looking to find errors, you're looking to benefit you're studying to benefit. But if you come across errors, then you try to find excuses for the masters of the past who have been known generally to be Sharia compliant, law abiding,

00:14:42 --> 00:14:50

sincere, devoted to the Quran and the Sunnah to the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

And and you move on, you find excuses for their errors and you move on to demystification, checking it against the Quran.

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

Isn't find proper excuses for the masters of the past. But if they did, if there are no excuses or certain people have truly deviated, and you don't need to find excuses for them, I mean, you don't need to find excuses for people who have truly deviated off the path of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the companions, you don't have to be judgmental in the sense of, you know, sort of, particularly at your level, maybe, you know, the scholars more colors more grounded in knowledge, they do sometimes need to,

00:15:35 --> 00:15:38

to do that to pass judge,

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

but at your level, you don't have to be judgmental

00:15:43 --> 00:16:03

in respect to who goes to where who goes to the gentleman who goes to Nara, but but certainly when when there were there are many errors or when there are errors that do not need to be tolerated because there is no there is not much that you that you need to you know, to learn from them. There is not much benefit

00:16:04 --> 00:16:32

to tolerate those errors. You do not need to find excuses. You do not need to entertain the legacy of that particular scholar because there are so many masters of the past that have been more compliant, that have been more knowledgeable, that have been more upright in their practice and their preaching of the soul. Like I said, he'll deny that and his likes or his.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:33


00:16:34 --> 00:16:43

So that's what we're going to be doing and that's what we have been doing demystification checking against opponents and trying to find proper excuses for people.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:55

Then the chef would say a doctor who will Amara hospital follow this up reception where he talks about our episode Elon Musk Dr. Ravi toman is heritage fellow Lila

00:16:56 --> 00:17:18

adonijah Rhoda first, you know, when it comes to noting or taking notice, he said the first level will focus upon his noting the antecedents of grace is noting the antecedents of grace smaller hazard alpha sub denote the antecedents of a loss grace in other minute Hosanna economo Babu

00:17:20 --> 00:17:33

those who, for whom the best reward has gone force from us or has been decreed for them, for those for whom

00:17:34 --> 00:17:52

the best reward, you know, the fairest view or the best reward has already been decreed or gone forth from us what I can home about doing they will be far away far removed from it from the Hellfire subhabrata home in that hustler.

00:17:54 --> 00:18:14

So it hasn't had a great reward has already proceeded has already gone forth. For the we have already decreed that there will be saved, we have already decreed that they will be rewarded. That's the antecedents of grace. That is the antecedents of grace before your actions before your work could be for anything.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:25

He decreed as exalted as he that he will be removed from the Hellfire in sha Allah He decreed hope that he decreed for all of us.

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

But he hadn't decreed for all the people, the dwellers of Paradise that they will be removed from the hellfire. That's the antecedents of grace before all of your work.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:44

So what I have confirmed this uptime, the first level is no thing the antecedents of grace.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

Why at October 31.

00:18:48 --> 00:18:58

So three things that this will result in three things like the usual the check device every one of the three levels into three points. This results in three things

00:19:01 --> 00:19:18

that are referred to as Elon Musk's Robo. advisor, it doesn't Lola, it's interrupts it interrupts supplications except to show humidity or that humidity due to his lordship. It interrupts all supplications except to show

00:19:23 --> 00:19:26

to show that humidity due to his Lord.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:44

You know, and we may have discussed this before, but like I said, we were we're going to be repeating everything over and over again. But the concept of should we make God is it better to make it or not to make dua to invoke a law or to not invoke a law?

00:19:45 --> 00:19:59

Certainly it is better to make the law. It is better than regular for so many reasons that Steve here gave one reason why it is better to make. He said Elon Musk, the hyper Robo VM in the valley

00:20:00 --> 00:20:04

Have the interrupts applications except to show the humidity due to his lordship.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:10

Why does it interrupt supplications? to notice the antecedents of grace

00:20:11 --> 00:20:15

means what to notice and everything has been decreed.

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


00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

where's the place of God?

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

If everything has been decreed, so that's one meaning,

00:20:24 --> 00:20:33

in this case will be passive passive. It's basically you know that everything has been, is over. It's done properly, it

00:20:34 --> 00:20:44

depends have been lifted, the scriptures are now dry. So dry scriptures, everything has been written, everything has been decreed. Whereas what is

00:20:45 --> 00:20:49

the benefit of the law in this case, so that's one meaning.

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

The other meaning is when you notice the antecedents of grace, you will be too busy praising him than to be asking anything for yourself.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:13

This isn't just a hammer. Now, this is crowdedness. Basically, the time is not enough for you to do both. Therefore, you will favor praising him over asking him

00:21:14 --> 00:21:41

The more you notice the antecedents of His grace, the more you are absorbed in shahadat admin now, in beholding the grace the bounties the favors of a lot of pinata upon you that you are not deserving of you will be too embarrassed to be asking for anything or you know, demanding anything, you'll just be all the time busy

00:21:44 --> 00:21:47

praising him and showing gratitude

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

to him.

00:21:51 --> 00:21:54

Okay, so the this would be the argument against

00:21:55 --> 00:22:05

the argument for praise praising him versus men making. What is the argument for the chef mentioned that the one of the arguments for the iron

00:22:07 --> 00:22:16

was which is harder to that level so Canada is to show your humility to him because that's what he wants out of school email as a follow

00:22:18 --> 00:23:09

up Dr. de la vida de patatas que la Mrs. f la cultura br doesn't arrabida they, they said, Do you complain to Allah subhanaw taala concerning something that is not concealed from him, something that he knows better than you? So why do you can complain to Allah concerning something that is known to him better known to him than it is to you? for Paul to have Dr. de la vida de I said, My Lord is pleased with the humidity, shown by the slaves by the servants before him. My lord is pleased with the humidity shown by the slaves before him, Dr. Wasabi delivery. So that's one reason to show your humility to Allah subhanaw taala. Because what I bet as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, is

00:23:09 --> 00:23:10


00:23:11 --> 00:23:23

meaning God is the core of worship, that is the main pillar of worship. That is the crux of worship is the essence of worship is God. Because there has this recognition of

00:23:24 --> 00:23:51

his power, his compassion, his existence, first of all, His power, His compassion, and your poverty, your need your weakness, your vulnerability, isn't that what I better is about that is what I better is about. So every time you're making, you're recognizing His power, His compassion, and your need, and your vulnerability and your poverty. So

00:23:52 --> 00:23:59

then, that's, that's one of the reasons then is that it allows us the second reason is

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

we have been commanded and that's the most important reason, we have been commanded to make the

00:24:07 --> 00:24:07


00:24:08 --> 00:24:10

and your goal said hero.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:18

invoke me and I would respond to you with a samurai by the army for any party without a doubt, either.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:22

Evo de la la.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:26

So, lots of Kanagawa says

00:24:28 --> 00:24:43

in the Qur'an was set up in the south, for instance, the province on laws and themselves, madam Yes, la, la, whoever does not invoke a law or does not ask the law for his needs. Allah would be angry with him. Melania said it

00:24:44 --> 00:24:47

would be angry with them. We have been commanded to make the

00:24:50 --> 00:24:54

Moreover, we find that the prophets advocate banyans

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

you know, the righteous predecessors have been always making die. So

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

How could we not? Then you know that that would be the sort of the quickest?

00:25:08 --> 00:25:42

Because suddenly, you know, sometimes when What do you discuss the different arguments? So you could say this outweighs this, this outweighs that eventually. But wait a second, you have to step back and say, though, what did the graphic used to do? Doesn't that end? It should lie. What did the companions used to do? That the companions used to make the profits are seldom used to make dua to Allah invoke Allah subhanaw taala, for their various needs, that the Prophet used to do it, the companions used to do it? Yes, then we're not confused.

00:25:43 --> 00:26:01

There is no reason to be confused afterwards is Is there any reason to be confused, or to hesitate or to have any ambivalence, any sort of reluctance about the stronger position there is not. So we have been commanded. And this is the way of the

00:26:02 --> 00:26:10

the prophets of Allah Solomon the companions have this is the way to show our humility to Allah subhanaw taala. And finally,

00:26:12 --> 00:26:16

yes, even though Baba has been written, but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,

00:26:17 --> 00:27:02

and you may we may not be able to completely comprehend this, because it could be beyond us, but the concept of Potter itself is beyond us. Because combining the concept of color and tech leave, and being liable, you know, the fact that everything is that we are still liable, is very hard for us. It may be hard to hard for us to completely comprehend, we can understand it, we can accept it, we can understand it enough to accept it. But it may be too to wrap your head around that completely may be difficult. So that same applies here. You know, everything is written. What's the benefit of diet? Well, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Lazio phenomena in other

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

words, the Bible imagine from Selbourne, what do

00:27:08 --> 00:27:24

you do for the hammer lol, nothing extends life. Except then sometimes it's translated as righteousness, but it actually means kindness here. So better every day in kindness to the parents, you know, that having longer the longer political videos, and direct mail,

00:27:26 --> 00:27:33

you know, or better here means in that context, means kindness, treatment of others, so that

00:27:35 --> 00:27:44

nothing extends life, except there, which is kindness. What a hero do Alcantara Illa adore.

00:27:45 --> 00:27:51

Nothing averse to divine decrees nothing of the Divine decrees except

00:27:53 --> 00:27:54


00:27:55 --> 00:28:06

When Roger laochra model risca, the zombie You see, and then could be deprived man may be deprived of his or her provisions

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


00:28:09 --> 00:28:56

you know, a sin that he or she commits by a sin that he or she commits. So the prophets are clearly here, saying to us what I will do a father in law, nothing very good. The Divine decrees repelled vert, the divine decrees except subrogation? Well, we just have to say something I don't know. Maybe you can't understand, maybe, you know, every scholar would have to say, how does this happen? What How could this How could the dot repaired or various other maybe different talks about maybe their annual weekly daily data that come down and then whatever is written in the preserve a tablet is written, but it is written in the preserve tablet that you will make door and because of the door,

00:28:57 --> 00:29:21

here, you know, the color will change, maybe the annual annual decrease, or the weekly decrease, or the daily decrease will be changed because of your da, and Allah subhanaw taala wanted this to happen this way, too, for you need to manifest to make a parent, the power of God wanted, you know, so it's it is not.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:56

It's not like, sort of useless or meaningless. It is to show you that there is powerful so that you're making that sincerely, so that you're making God with devotion, and with sincerity, and with also humidity and brokenness. You're making them just like sowing the seeds, and waiting for the, you know, the visualizations to sprout and to grow and the crops to be harvested. But you're sowing the seeds. You know, the harvest has been decreed, isn't it?

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

But your instance, I want to see

00:30:01 --> 00:30:06

Consider God to be just like that, you know, the answer the reply has been decreed

00:30:08 --> 00:30:23

whether it's in the affirmative or not, but it hasn't been decreed. And it is always in the apartment that affirmative the DA is, is sincere. But, you know, it depends on what Allah subhanaw taala would give you and, you know, in return for that door,

00:30:24 --> 00:30:25


00:30:26 --> 00:30:32

but but it is always in the affirmative, if the license here. So the idea here is

00:30:34 --> 00:30:56

what why, why is it so difficult for us to comprehend this? Well, you can save as a dar is set up just like sowing the seeds Sabbath for the job is a cause for the response from Allah subhanaw taala. For for the answer, just like sowing the seeds for harvesting the crops eventually.

00:30:58 --> 00:31:52

And just like every cause is a cause for its effect, the cause and effect have been both decreed by Alaska, have been both created by Allah subhanaw taala, and have been both the cream. So it is important that you understand that, that the power of the dryer comes at its origin from a loved one. And that's when you really feel and that's the benefit of discussing something like this, your dog is not, in and of itself does not have inherently the power to bring about the good that you're waiting for, or the harm that you want to avoid. It all comes from Allah subhanaw taala. So, that shows you that there is not a complete cause. That is not an efficient cause or a complete cause.

00:31:53 --> 00:32:03

But it is a cost made to be a cause by the first and the efficient and the complete cause which is the divine hazard.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:20

Is that clear. So the rights. So these are different types of the these are the types of argument on behalf of supplicating to Allah. The most important of these arguments we've been commanded to invoke

00:32:21 --> 00:32:29

the more and this is the way of the prophets of Allah Subhan Allah competities and it is the way to show humanity to your Lord.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:49

And yes, there is a subject for the Java both the dark and the Java both the effect the cause and the effect are decreed only to create but created by Allah subhanho wa Taala So, that just helps you

00:32:50 --> 00:32:53

show more humidity and brokenness

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

to God.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:04

So, the first concept, so, we want to remember that there are as always superior and if someone says, but what about that concept of Musa hammer

00:33:05 --> 00:33:28

the concept of time is too short to waste it on the HA he should be wasted, you should be using it to praise your goal to you know, show gratefulness to the Lord because this was a hammer crowdedness you know, competing to things competing, okay. So, as it says in the data set again and I you know,

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

certainly there have been many people who

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

explained these concepts and, you know, this concept of Doha be in a suburb, it was also mentioned by the university and society and research speaks of this and, you know,

00:33:47 --> 00:34:07

I have a particular preference for Medallia seddiqi and I think it's an unmatched book. And even if I am set out to defend Sufism, you know, everything every critic critique, that he basically or every sort of

00:34:10 --> 00:34:17

everything that he pointed out every deviation or perversion that he pointed out, was in for the sake of

00:34:18 --> 00:34:29

the Grand sort of scheme of of things was a defense of true Sufism, a defense of pure Sufism. So Madonna just said again is is

00:34:30 --> 00:34:40

is a book that you know, if you read the whole book, and inshallah, you know, at some point in the near future, it will come out, it will be published.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:52

Dr. Anderson's book would be published that is authentic in the translation modality and you will get to read it. And so, but if you read the whole book, it basically

00:34:54 --> 00:34:59

it does all of that work that we talked about demystification checking against the puranam the sudden showing the way

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

The profit of companies and most importantly, finding proper excuses for the masters of the past when the earth

00:35:10 --> 00:35:52

so it hasn't been a payment, isn't the modality Yes, there is that concept of was a hammer could be true but not as an outcome as a station that you stay in, but as a ham as a state that you go through. So sometimes, sometimes you would be too busy, too busy raising a lot to ask for anything. Sometimes this happens as a hat, you see the difference between the heart and the makaan. There are different ways of discerning between the heart and the mechanic. But one of the differences is that heart is a state that you go through, not amacom, that you stay in another station that you stay in, but a state that you go through. So sometimes you go through this as a hat.

00:35:54 --> 00:35:58

And this could last hours, days, weeks, maybe but it is

00:35:59 --> 00:36:28

still not, it's still that you are not going to abandon that. It's not that you're going to give up on invoking your Lord and asking for your leads. Because that is not the way of the Prophet eliminates companions, but it could be that you go through even four weeks are still busy with praise and shock or harmed and shock to be asking for anything. And that would be would be a good hand.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:48

But not a good enough Ah, you know not that you will be doing this forever, that you will be abandoning the hook. Then the sheikh said, so the second noting the antecedents of His grace, when you notice that everything that every single good

00:36:49 --> 00:37:40

has bestowed or granted to you, or bestowed on you, everything has been already decreed. And you notice the antecedents of His grace, then you will be at times too busy to make the law and you'd be too busy making sure to make the art and the other one is what won't be to Surah Illa SHABOOM and hazari Mk cultivates joy accepted that it is mixed with concern about his plots about his plans about his schemes, about the plans the schemes the parts of a loss of Parliament, it cultivates joy, except that it is mixed with concern about his plans and schemes, plots. And that is the difference is we call the public key for political failure. Franco hydroclimate vowed Surat Yunus, Allah

00:37:40 --> 00:37:45

subhanaw taala says in Allah's grace and His mercy that rejoice

00:37:47 --> 00:38:30

in sort of law for the radical political content of 100, articulated happy about quantum tumblehome that is because of how you use the exalt on Earth, without right. So exalting the power that is dimmable exalting that this can demo, exalting, that is excessive, that is not mixed with this concern. exalt without having any concern about your final destiny, like you were just too happy to help you with this donia to help you with your career, to help you with your life, to help you with your vehicle, to have you with your spouse, to help you with everything that you have become deluded, you have become sort of

00:38:31 --> 00:38:33

you have no concern.

00:38:34 --> 00:38:56

Not that happiness is condensable per se no be happy You should be happy without the lay of the rock Mati in the grace of Allah spirit, Allah has mercy usually rejoice. But the happiness that is not mixed with any concern is happiness that could lead to to VR tyranny that could lead to reflect heedlessness.

00:38:57 --> 00:39:09

Don't you see a lot of people are too happy. Just to be hateful to be even contemplated to be even observant to be even anything. Sometimes we were too happy to

00:39:11 --> 00:39:16

to have any level of wisdom or you know thoughtfulness.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:29

Okay, so what are the two surah Allah Masha? Allah cultivates joy in the grace of Allah subhanaw taala except that it is mixed with concern about his schemes.

00:39:32 --> 00:39:53

If I mean I'm not gonna laugh and I'm gonna I'm not gonna lie, I sirona last mile data services instead of Allah. Raph, do they feel immune against the schemes of Allah? Or do they feel secure from our against the schemes of Allah no one feels secure or you against the schemes of Allah except the losers.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

Then he said, What about Allah shoukry indomitable harpaz gentlemen happiness

00:40:01 --> 00:40:18

Tabatha Shakur in La Palma de la paz gentlemen Happy assefa motivates gratefulness accepted that which is the prerogative of the Divine help a Silver Surfer here the attribute is the attribute of a school who can allow Sakura, not even before unshackled.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:32

So it's this attribute of shocker gratefulness allies are grateful, very grateful. Meaning that no one can actually show gratitude to Allah Allah. Because any gratitude that you have to Allah

00:40:34 --> 00:41:09

only warrants more gratitude because that gratitude is from him, not from you. The fact that he had given you the guidance that they'll be able to show gratitude to him, and something that he would be deserving of gratitude for, not you. It's not your doing it is his doing, he actually enabled us to do guided you to show gratitude to him. So no, no one really can show gratitude to a lot for a lot of sufficient gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala except Allah, He is a Shaku, he is the grateful.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:28

Then the SEC said what data to saniya Mullah guests. Were here, just below the bass at the second level is noting the light of disclosure, it bolsters the bond, the

00:41:29 --> 00:41:38

gas for a two Spiro University only, the second limit is noting the light of disclosure at bull, you know, so noticing the light of disclosure.

00:41:40 --> 00:42:11

So the first one is about your knowledge of the antecedents of His grace, this can be acquired by learning, right, you know, the antecedents of is great. But the second one is not acquired by learning gets acquired by experience, however, to Noriega's, the second is not in the light of disclosure, we did talk before about disclosure, the Sony type of disclosure is disclosed closer that is not mixed with any other harm or any conjecture or any sort of misgivings.

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


00:42:14 --> 00:42:22

But this light of disclosure, this light that you will be given, you know, where he, you know, because of your

00:42:23 --> 00:43:00

commitment, because of your practice, you know, after you have learned that acted upon that knowledge acted upon that knowledge, you move to the second level, the second level is different experiences now, that are based on the first level, which is the level of learning and acting upon that knowledge, that's the first level that's the foundation, learn act upon this. Notice the second level is basically when you go through different mock Ahmadinejad, different experiences in different states spiritual states, that are gifts from Allah subhanaw taala. Because you have learned and acted upon your knowledge in the first level, because you have learned that activity are

00:43:00 --> 00:43:32

not, and you should never walk away from the first you know, you don't leave the first level, you stay in the first level, and then you get to the third level, and you stay in the first level all the time, learning and acting upon your knowledge, the image and I was asked one day about, you know, he had the same height as and he had the beads in his hand. And he said after all of this, you have your Fs was also reported when he had when he was making his IRA and so on. And he told me after all of this, you're still so committed to your IRA and he said, you know,

00:43:33 --> 00:43:34

periurban was out to be here.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:53

It's a path that I took to Allah subhanaw taala that took me to Allah subhanaw taala I would never leave it. I would never abandon I would never, you know, get off that path, the path of you know, the, the following the sin, you know, complying with the Sharia

00:43:54 --> 00:44:01

is the past that guy that got me to where I am. Why should I walk away after it got me to where I.

00:44:02 --> 00:44:03


00:44:04 --> 00:44:12

second level is higher, but the overlap, you don't believe the first level to go to the second level. Second level is a fruit of the first level.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:28

But it does not mean a departure from the first and when you depart from the first you lose the first one the second by the way. When you leave the first which is learning and compliance with the knowledge, you lose both first and second.

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

Noting the light of disclosure, it boasts way to be really versatile. It bolsters the bond, that one needs the value of a lot your bond with Allah, that Allah Allah is to be attached to Allah here to be an Tato la vida de la la la la la vida de. So you bolster your bond with a layer attachment.

00:44:54 --> 00:44:59

With a law and your detachment from others. That is the only time you could get away.

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

In both, you know, you're moving closer to someone, you're moving away from someone. So the law or the law.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:16

It's the same thing here attaching yourself to a law, detaching yourself from the creation.

00:45:18 --> 00:45:28

What was the portata gelita spearo devesa 3002 z pathoma at 32. The pedometer jelly permits one to taste the divine appearance,

00:45:30 --> 00:45:44

the jelly would be divine appearance, the chef means by this, the appearance of the manifestations of the names and attributes of the actions of Allah, tala to the heart, the heart is now able to behold the meanings of all the names.

00:45:46 --> 00:45:50

Here are the provider, your heart, you know, now

00:45:52 --> 00:45:53

that particular refer to

00:45:54 --> 00:46:06

that particular server becomes so apparent to you that it is not only knowledge, it is not only that, you know that Allah is the provider, it is a deep conviction, you know, conviction

00:46:08 --> 00:47:05

that it is a sort of, it's an experience, you know, firsthand. It's just like, it's deep in your heart. It says at the gym that like, so far that attribute has become apparent and manifest to you through experience, not only through learning allies, for you, is not an intellectual sort of conviction is a conviction of the heart that resulted from experience. And the same applies to all of the Safar the jelly, here's the jelly of the sofa, or the appearance of the support and the actions of Allah subhanaw taala. To the heart, it does not mean that the God of the Lord does that the essence of the Lord Himself even though you know, some Sophie's have claimed that, that agenda,

00:47:06 --> 00:47:17

the law would manifest themselves to the ODF The problem was, this claim is, you know, the first time that we talked about you know, is then the LDF

00:47:18 --> 00:48:11

are higher in station than the NBA, not only then via for the husband or Russell, you know of greatness, the messengers of great resolve musala is sky, scholars about a sermon that disagree with me a second best or third best. And many of them said the second best, is even greater than Ibrahim or a Sarah, according to some about a certain. So it would be Mohammed Ibrahim Musa for Mohammed Musa Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. So, so if Moosa was not granted that request, how could anyone claim that Allah had manifested them say himself, his that his essence to, to them, then you know, for sure that this is not true? Well, if someone is confused, someone could be confused, that we

00:48:11 --> 00:48:55

could find excuses for people to be confused. You know, and if you want to be if you want to have personal run, say have good thoughts of people, you will say that this is the light of their obedience, that got them confused, the thought of is the light of the Divine, when it is the light of their obedience, they have this reorder the spiritual exercise training, to an extent that makes them get to a level where the light is overwhelming, that they could be missed that they could mistake it for the light of the Divine when it is actually the light of their obedience physically.

00:48:57 --> 00:48:58

Whatever it is,

00:49:00 --> 00:49:10

it will feel like a physical light, it will certainly it is certainly a spiritual light is coming to the heart. But it could feel like a physical light. Yes.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:36

So it could be a physical, the internet experience. And certainly, you know, and I don't want to basically psychologize everything in the sense of talking about psychosomatic phenomena, and the fact of the interior on the exterior and the effect of internal experiences on the central sort of the physical experiences or the senses.

00:49:37 --> 00:49:50

But but there could even be explanations like scientific explanations for things of that nature. So it is like an overwhelming a tournament experience that when basically

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

sort of affect your senses. When we talked before about absorption, absorption in the divine, the sense of absorbed

00:50:00 --> 00:50:18

into the divine, it is an overwhelming experience that will affect your senses, the vanishing, that they describe that they have had, you know, so some of them, you know, some of them were not compliant with Sharia, I don't care about what they say to begin with.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:27

But if some of them are compliant with the shape, shift, z, for instance, z, for instance, he's happy about it gradually

00:50:29 --> 00:50:31

come out with our karma.

00:50:33 --> 00:50:35

If you see a man that is fly,

00:50:37 --> 00:50:56

because of this karma, don't consider him anything good until you see how compliant he is with this idea. Well, I can say that someone like this is not compliant with the Sharia. And that is why the American Allah, Allah for you know, found excuses for Boise, Boise.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:06

Boise Rahim Allah for saying things that are just like too hard, they just, you know, so pennies, apparently Glory be to me.

00:51:08 --> 00:51:30

But we said that these are the heart of the successes, our brief, transiently denounced them after the wake up from the intoxication of the from the spiritual intoxication, it's not something that you would actually sit down and write and sort of elaborate on it's something that you would recount once you have what woke it like a walk from your

00:51:31 --> 00:51:58

sort of trans. But still, you know, scholars, various verifying scholars, which they deem likely anti American, Allah would find excuses because they knew that these experiences could be overwhelming, and could cause people to say, yes, it would be a physical, sort of like an spiritual experience resulting in

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

a physical life.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:27

So But well, but let's take a step back now and say, is this ever true, it is never true? You know, it is never true. If someone would have seen their Lord, it would have been Mohammed Ibrahim and Musab Al Assad was set up, no one would have been more deserving of this, then, in order to asmin narosa.

00:52:28 --> 00:53:00

But the prophet saws and I'm told this clearly explicitly, that we will not see our Lord Elvis light was reported on silent Muslim, for it was reported inside Muslim the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the Alamo and Neverland era niara domain Kumara mahatama Talamo which means learn or bear in mind, bear in mind, bear in mind and in an era domain Kumara Hata mode that none of you will see more until he or she dies.

00:53:01 --> 00:53:28

Alamo and Neverland era hot on main camera hot mo Can you remember this memorize it because it's important. It is important you know, for your own knowledge and also for guiding others to Orlando and Neverland era hidden camera. This was reported by insight Muslim, they are in mind that none of you will see his or her Lord until they die.

00:53:29 --> 00:53:56

Okay, so that ends that. So the journey here is that the journey of suffering in a fire. It is the man of the coming true or the appearance or appearance, or the manifesting of the divine attributes were reserved is not something that you know about a law. It's something that you believe deep in your heart something that you have experienced, you know, the agenda,

00:53:57 --> 00:54:16

what are our salary so that the cash for that disclosure to Speedo diversity only bolsters the bond. attachment to Allah detachment from others to the pedometer gently permits one to face to the divine appearance, the appearance of the names, the attributes and actions.

00:54:18 --> 00:54:40

What asking them in order to suddenly protects one from the law of conservation protects one from the law of consolation. Conservation here means what? To find solace in this life away from Allah. That's just like being too happy thing that we talked about before you're just too happy to be hateful, too happy to be content later.

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

So fancy monada suddenly protects one from the law of conservation to find consolation in anything other than a loss or of Allah. Wherever then Allah subhanaw taala in

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


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

he said adara

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

Two studies that Mahabharata is drama. We're here to visit St. Lucia. The third level is noting the essence of union union here is your togetherness with Allah. It is the union of wells, conformity of your will to the point of being in union with women of La Plata. It is an era that it is that your will confirms that it is not that there will be one way one way others won't be. You know, the fact that that is Allah, he said, he said to his Lord, why have you forsaken me on what they say? He said it all across, he was not crucified to begin with. But but the argument here is that if he was saying that his Lord, you're talking about two individuals, you're talking about two beings, you're

00:55:49 --> 00:56:19

talking about once you're talking about two wills, you're talking about two beings. Once you're talking about two wills, you're talking about two beings. Once you're talking about one when you're talking about one being there will not be one when there will be two wins, but your will is so much in conformity with his will, that you may say it is in complete unison to union with his will. So that is that together on a status about the certainly union.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:37

And also should and so on. But But anyway, we talked about the journal before we talked about these issues. So it was time and drama noting the essence of union we're here to please release the heritage

00:56:38 --> 00:57:26

awakens one to the insignificance of striving awakens one to the insignificance of striving. What Well, how do you understand the 11? What are we talking about the insignificant subscribing? Was he someone who strove in the pleasure of his Lord, in serving his Lord in complying with a study until he died? Yes, that is this era. That is his theory. Therefore, to business, the heritage that awakens one to the insignificance of striving does not mean that you will abandon striving for your abandoned physical bodily striving for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala already abandoned that the Khalifa, the Sharia, the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, it would not mean that because that's not

00:57:26 --> 00:58:03

his personality car, or that is not what he explained in other places. So that's how you read, you know, these statements by the scholars, in general, you just don't take one statement because that is that is sort of the that's the attitude of people, the people of excessiveness, of extreme Muslim. So some people will read this and completely dismiss it momentarily. You know, and we found so many ambiguous statements so far in the previous 70 stations, that if we were to suspect,

00:58:04 --> 00:58:56

evil, or suspect, you know, other than good, we would have enough plenty of opportunities to dismiss the mojado right? But that's not what we do. And on the other side, someone may also take this and because of some deviant inclination or tendency they have, they may say that yes, you know, after one point, you reach a level where those sort of teachings become irrelevant because you are in union with Allah subhanaw taala and who would want to basically comply with this idea when they found that happy when they are in union with the true one. And the reason why they use paper we we've talked about this before, a lot isn't hacked but the reason why they have this emphasis on a

00:58:56 --> 00:58:57


00:58:58 --> 00:59:01

is because of the concept of finance the concept of

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


00:59:05 --> 00:59:48

but but anyway, what we're talking about the demo is Sony or together this was a lot the union of your word with as well in the sense that you will be in conformity with as well to the point that your will will be completely as if it does not exist. Hakuna Matata and imagine to be none of you would have believed until their desire, their inclination is in accordance with that which I have brought forth. That's what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said. So to the to the standard Mujahidin awakens one to the insignificance of striving, it does not mean that you will be lifted the importance of the bodily actions. We have seen how the masters of the path

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

have excelled throughout their lives. In fact, if you know this particular part and Madonna just said he and I have certainly something that he needs to clarify

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

He needs to find the proper meaning for this particular statement. So it may mean that you will never rely on the travel by the body alone, that you will have put a greater emphasis on the travel of the heart. Because a lot of people are deluded and think that, you know, I make aamra, every other year or twice a year, and I pray five times a day, can I do this, and I do that, and you find them to be completely empty inside.

01:00:36 --> 01:01:09

They don't have any internet experience. And those are deluded really. And they're deluded by in which I had by the physical striving, by, you know, their their sort of physical compliance. So that may be a meaning to say that they understand that eliminates a lot of the complexity, you know, except one who comes through a lot to Allah with a heart that is, so they know that the importance, then the emphasis that should be placed on the travel by the heart and the purification of the heart, and so on and so forth.

01:01:11 --> 01:01:39

So, in comparison to that, the body, the or the physical image, I will say that, in comparison to that, it does not mean that they don't, they don't, you know, work hard in serving their Lord, they work in their bodies hard in serving their Lord, but they understand that what will really get them much closer is the work of the heart, not the body.

01:01:40 --> 01:01:42

It could also mean

01:01:43 --> 01:02:00

but then in line with that his psyche, and he basically quoted so many of the masters of thought their practice their preaching, about compliance with the study on the importance of the law, the importance of a god the importance of worship and the physical striving

01:02:01 --> 01:02:15

for Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, Mohammed did it, he was with injury, personal injury law, but I will pass him was was about to die. And he says that I will pass him

01:02:16 --> 01:02:21

that is always leaving him sort of from the bottom up.

01:02:23 --> 01:02:33

You could say that the hairs his feet was were paralyzed, and he was still praying. And people started to notice that he is, you know, he's losing.

01:02:35 --> 01:02:46

You know, his feet are getting paralyzed, his legs are getting paralyzed. He was engaged in prayer and recitation and so on and so forth. And they have been saying, Mohamed

01:02:48 --> 01:02:49

said to him,

01:02:50 --> 01:02:51

why don't you lie down?

01:02:55 --> 01:02:56

And he said,

01:02:58 --> 01:03:10

he said, Have I walked to New York has a fee. Yeah, Mohammed had up to you as a fee. This is this is this is time that you cannot afford to waste. This is time that you have to invest

01:03:13 --> 01:03:15

as much as you can. And then he said, Yeah,

01:03:17 --> 01:03:20

man, I have too many we have an n.

01:03:22 --> 01:03:33

One Testarossa Havre de todo Rosa de todo, however, Mohammed who is more deserving of this, or than me now when my scroll is being

01:03:36 --> 01:03:37

rolled up.

01:03:38 --> 01:03:40

Or my screen has been pulled away.

01:03:42 --> 01:03:46

So that was how committed they were until the last breath. You know.

01:03:49 --> 01:03:51

It used to pray 400 hours every day.

01:03:53 --> 01:03:58

And they weren't committed to that are out there. We're committed to their worship all the time.

01:04:00 --> 01:04:25

Until the very end, and closer to the very end or even more deserving as a passenger Abraham Allah said that no one like you should Excel you should actually sprint at that time. You should excel at that time closer to the end. When you see that you're in the you know, the years grow your good deeds, your scroll of good deeds is being pulled away from you,

01:04:27 --> 01:04:30

or about to be pulled away from you or to be rolled up.

01:04:32 --> 01:04:50

That's when you actually do your best. So, so we have to understand this meaning we will be answering to people, people who will dismiss and ship an RFP because of the ambiguity of the statement and people who will take this ambiguous, ambiguous statement and misunderstand

01:04:51 --> 01:05:00

because they have sort of deviant inclinations. And then he's about to holism and Rona Mohan about this

01:05:00 --> 01:05:45

union rates one from or drama rates one from the imprudence of objections objections to the other company or other sorry, any objection to the another konia of Allah there are other company of Allah, which is what, you know the creative, the universal will have lots of pinata, whether he likes it or not the things that he created, he decreed whether he likes them or not, there are other suraiya is whatever he likes, and he prescribed, whatever your bikes and he prescribed for us, prescriptive word of Allah subhanaw taala, prescriptive, whatever has to be met with compliance, create a willingness to be met with acceptance, acceptance, any objection to his prescriptive will,

01:05:45 --> 01:06:01

by non compliance, any objection to his creative web, by lack of acceptance is called moral objection. So, you know, you don't object to his creative? Well, you don't say, Why have you done this to me.

01:06:02 --> 01:06:18

And you don't object this prescriptive? Well, you don't say this is too hard for me, if he commanded it, if he demanded that of you, then it is within your capacity. And then finally, we're to fetal mortality, which is

01:06:19 --> 01:06:41

what we do a lot better, and allows one to behold the beginnings to feed mortality that allows one to behold the beginnings likely This is about the beginnings, you know, before the creation of the universe before the creation of all creation. So you are witnessing, you're beholding you're taking note that before everything Allah was and

01:06:43 --> 01:07:12

everything else was not. So Allah was and everything else was not be you know, so that is, that is the beginnings so you This is the blanket that your roll up on or your roll on the roll on the creation until you know, you don't see them anymore. And you see the creator hazard or it could mean also the feeling with an artist but that

01:07:14 --> 01:07:38

beholding the beginnings it could mean that the your beginnings on the path to Alice pinata those types of beginnings are characterized by what z then determination and focus right you know, when you start on the path of Allah subhanaw taala and you're steady aangan or you're still new to the past, you have this Shara, you have the Z in the beginning.

01:07:40 --> 01:07:41

And Jeanette

01:07:43 --> 01:07:44

used to say wash your car,

01:07:46 --> 01:07:46


01:07:47 --> 01:07:48

you know,

01:07:49 --> 01:07:52

how great is my longing to the times in the beginning?

01:07:53 --> 01:07:56

How greatest my longing to the time of the

01:07:57 --> 01:07:58


01:07:59 --> 01:08:02

Because of this zeal that you miss sometimes.

01:08:04 --> 01:08:43

Regardless of you know the masters of the past regardless of the stations, they they reached, they would still long for those beginning when you first committed to the path of Allah subhana wa tada when you first embarked on the path, this was a time of great momentum, zeal, focus, determination, and then equally certain factor as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, every server every time zeal and energy is followed by lethargy because the sort of added is inconsistent, does not have great results or other fancy

01:08:47 --> 01:08:48
