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

It allowed me

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

to proceed.

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

Today inshallah we will have the chapter or the station of follow up.

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

And in fact, we'll continue to talk about bequests.

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

Versus the station of a doctor in sha Allah.

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

Allah, Allah said in his book man hazardous aliens, the Stations of the wayfarers

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

bubble up to the chapter on work or timeliness. And I'll talk about why I translated as timeliness.

00:00:41--> 00:01:15

He said Palazzo della somogy, tada darwinia Moosa, a lot of Almighty said, then you came at the decreed time or Moses, then you came at the decree time, or Moses. So the shift starts by a verse in the Quran, that says, that's what what he does at the beginning of every station. And he chose this verse for that station of and walked off to can be literally translated as time. Sometimes it's translated as the moment.

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

But it is about timeliness anyway,

00:01:21--> 00:01:28

it's about the appropriate time. And that's what the eye, that's what the air is about, the talks about coming here at the appropriate time.

00:01:30--> 00:02:10

It is not necessarily a preset, I have like a sort of an agreed upon time between God and Moses, but it is the time the law designated to be most suitable the time the law decided to be most suitable for Moses's arrival or for this meeting with Allah subhanaw taala. So, timeliness is about you know, the most suitable time for doing a thing or for the coming through a decree or something of that nature.

00:02:13--> 00:03:08

And what does he accept is a name for the temporal boundaries, in this respect, it is a name for three meanings at three levels. So and what is his name for the temporary boundaries, you know, that the most the two most important dimensions that we live in are what the spatial and the temporary space and time these are the most two important dimensions we live in, everything exists within these two dimensions, place and time. So substance exists, in which I mentioned space, and events exist in which direction time, that is why time as defined to be the relationship between two events, is how do you define time? What is time? You know, it is the relationship in the definition

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

of intimate Academy, that is the relationship between two events.

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

That's the only way that you can define time, the relationship between two events, that you know, what to say before, after, you know, you know, concurrently that means

00:03:28--> 00:03:39

you're talking about time. So, time is a vehicle for events, like, places our vehicles for substances.

00:03:41--> 00:03:57

So he said, time is a name for the temporal boundaries locked time is a name for temporal boundaries, we chose timeliness for the translation, although, you know, you can just translate this as time.

00:03:58--> 00:04:14

Some may translate this as the moment be translated as the moment because they do want to rightfully say that this is about living in the moment, capturing the moment being aware of the moment

00:04:16--> 00:04:26

basically setting up fences between the between you and the past, and the future.

00:04:27--> 00:04:38

And they usually use the same sufian factor openworked Sophie, Sophia, and the fact here is the, basically the child of his moment,

00:04:39--> 00:04:51

mostly occupied with this moment. This is not in a hedonistic sense, for sure. Because living in the moment could sometimes mean you know, to try to capture all

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

the pleasures, you know, sensual pleasures, and to live in the moment care not about the past.

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

toward the future, and the sense in a hedonistic sense, but this is in a devotional sense,

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

to basically have

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

to excel in your service of your Lord.

00:05:17--> 00:05:43

And to think not about the past or the future, because they are distractions, because you cannot influence or impact the past or future, you can only influence the moment, you could only be aware of the moment that you're living in now, the present, and the worst competitors are the future and the past, because they will always be

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

in your way.

00:05:47--> 00:05:54

So that is the past in terms of, you know, causing you grief and the future in terms of causing you anxiety, and you can't influence them.

00:05:55--> 00:06:36

So if you're unable to set up that fence between you and the past, which does not have to be an opaque fence, you know, climbs that fence needs to be transparent, because you need to learn from the past. But there should be a fence, because you can never go back. And if you can never go back that is of no use to basically waste your time. That's the most inefficient thing that you could do ever. Because if you're if you're unable to live in the present, and you're always living in the past, ruminating your grief, or you're living in the future, worrying about what will happen, then you will lose

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

your life.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

Because your life is basically

00:06:45--> 00:07:12

the combination of the presence, it is not about the past or the future, that you cannot directly influence. It is only now. And if you think about it, there is only one time where the precepts and concepts are combined, where your sensation and thoughts are combined, where you're actually getting all the input, the sort of

00:07:15--> 00:07:33

philosophically they say it's the only it's the only time where forms and categories are combined forms substance categories, you know, thoughts, this is the only time where they combined, it is only the present time where you basically are receiving

00:07:34--> 00:07:48

input through your senses. So you have to feel the present time, you have to feel your hand now, you have to feel your breath, your breathing.

00:07:50--> 00:08:01

And this awareness of your feelings and awareness, also of your thoughts is very helpful for your just being life.

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

And people can have different degrees of awareness.

00:08:11--> 00:08:23

But time is really interesting because out of the two dimensions out of the two dimensions that we're talking about, we're talking about place and time out of these two dimensions, which one is more important.

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

Time is more important.

00:08:30--> 00:08:40

Out of these these two dimensions, time is the only point of contact between the forms and categories between sensibilities and thoughts between what you sense

00:08:41--> 00:08:49

and what you think this is the only it is the only point of contact. That's why can't set the you know

00:08:52--> 00:09:36

basically, when when you think about how your senses which are physical in nature, can be translated into thoughts that point of contact between senses and thoughts. That has been a philosophical question through you know, for ages, the card you know provided a very primitive answer to this. He said the pineal gland is where thoughts and senses come together come in contact and then you make sense of your senses, you make the the precepts results in concepts, the precepts and the concepts mixed together. And Kant said, No, there is no point of contact except time, if he if he thinks about it,

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

ahead of time is of huge importance. That's why Allah swears by time so tell us by the time what asked, that is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said don't carry a bar, which is time because Allah is in luck, because of that is Allah and that is why in the third level, the chef will talk about

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

What would happen? What is the true one, you know, time is the true one. And a hacker is one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:12--> 00:11:03

So, time is of huge importance. And it is your ability to live in the moment, you know, to live in the present, or to live the present, that will enable you to excel, because it is the only time that you are actually able to impact and that is, like I said before, not an hedonistic sense, but in a devotional sense, you live in the moment, and he tried to figure out how to excel now, how to get the most out of this moment. And you are never able to do that, unless you set up those fences between you and the present. And you in the past, these are transparent fences, transparent fences, meaning that they are not going to obstruct your vision, but they are going to prevent you from

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

trying to basically step

00:11:06--> 00:11:22

over into the future of the past, when you cannot, you cannot use you will only be thinking about the future and you know, worrying about it, but you really can't influence influence it now, what you can do now is what you can do right now.

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

So, try to try to this is why the prophet SAW Selim forbids us from

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

basically, eating while standing.

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

If you want to eat, eat,

00:11:38--> 00:12:08

this is the time for eating. Just do this, eat, you know, you will basically enjoy better, you just eat, don't eat while you're standing or while you're walking. Just you know, give that time. It's the right. You know, this is the time for me to sit down and eat. That's why the prophets of Salaam told us not to pray while we feel the urge to the bathroom.

00:12:09--> 00:12:51

You know, that's why the prophet SAW Selim said no judge should basically entertain any cases, when they are angry or thirsty or hungry or the you know, so he It is about living, you know, the present in that moment and try to capture capture the most out of it. And in order for you to do that, you will have to be sort of prepared, ready, society sometimes walked that station is also about preparedness. So it's about living in the moment capturing a moment preparedness, timeliness, readiness,

00:12:53--> 00:13:04

appropriateness, also appropriateness of choosing the right time for the right thing, or doing the right thing at the right time. All of these meanings pertain to the station.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

But time is,

00:13:08--> 00:13:53

is of huge importance. And we say when we say that it is the only time where the precepts and concepts come together that's that's very important. Because if you think about it, you know, if you if you think about this, precepts and concepts precepts are, whatever you're receiving through your senses, concepts or whatever, you know, your thoughts, you know, what, what you make out of things, and they're both extremely important. You know, the you we've talked a bit before briefly about rationalists, you know, and empiricists, how empiricists place more importance on the precepts which you receive through your senses and how the rationalist place more importance on concepts, you know

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

your thoughts,

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

but,

00:13:57--> 00:14:07

both are important, precepts are important concepts are important. In fact, concept precepts without concepts are blind and concepts without precepts are empty.

00:14:09--> 00:14:26

So, the time is the only place is the only you know, the is the only, you know, dimension where they can come together. So, if you are if you, you, train yourself to live in the present moment,

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

you will not have grief or worries,

00:14:30--> 00:14:42

right? Because you will set up that fence between you and the past. And you will realize that whatever happened to you yesterday, whatever loss you've suffered last week,

00:14:44--> 00:14:56

you already have that fence, there is no going back. There is no need to ruminate your grief. So you're gonna live in this present moment. So you're not going to grieve over it.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

But what about your senses? What about

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

To someone who says, Well, I live with chronic pain.

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

So at every moment of my life, I receive those signals, painful signals.

00:15:16--> 00:15:22

That is the one certainly, you can tell someone like this, that you will.

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

For most of you sitting here, if you're not, if you're not

00:15:28--> 00:15:45

a patient with chronic pain, you should be extremely joyous. You're sitting in, you know, good, whether you're doing whatever you needed to do this more languages that listen to this lecture, yours, your breathing, great, everybody's aware of this.

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

Okay.

00:15:50--> 00:16:16

But what about if you have chronic pain, so now, while I am saying all of this, you are sort of receiving pain signals, that is when we talk about precepts and concept, the precept is the chronic pain, and we can deny that and it is certainly, you know, this stressful, but then, what about the importance of concepts, because precepts without concepts are blind.

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

If you know your if you were

00:16:22--> 00:17:15

basically seen and life is the service of Allah subhanaw taala is being tested for the greater reward than the Hereafter, that concept will affect your sensation of fame will affect your experience of pain, it becomes a different experience. It we cannot say that you're going to be giddy and cheerful and not you could be cheerful, but it's not like like he there is no pain. But will it make a huge difference? On your perspective of that pain, on your experience of that pain? If someone believes that, you know, life is it, and they are they have chronic pain isn't that devastating. Because this is it. And you know, I'm living a life of fame. But if someone thinks

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

that, that, that the reward for this

00:17:22--> 00:17:26

piano locker room has been makari, linear

00:17:28--> 00:17:40

algebra, so the profits are sort of people, you know, the Healthy People who would wish on the day of judgment that they that their skin was sort of punched out with punches,

00:17:41--> 00:17:48

because of the the reward that they will see Alabama, the people of, you know, hardship,

00:17:49--> 00:18:10

receive on the Day of Judgment. So if you're aware of this, here, then then your experience of pain, although pain is painful, and we're not denying this, but your experience of pain when not when be at a completely different experience. That's why that's where concepts affect precepts. So, if you're

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

if you have the

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

the right concepts

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

and you you understand that you can only impact the present, then you will make the most out of this present, he will live the present, you will not terminate your grief, you will not worry about the future and you will make the most out of this moment that you are living in.

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

So, time is of extreme importance, time is a name for the temporary boundaries.

00:18:50--> 00:19:05

In this respect in this respect means when watch respect, the respect of this gain the respect of the purification, the respect of the soul, he means it is a name for three meanings or three levels and manella word Okay the first meaning

00:19:07--> 00:19:13

as our hidden words then the analyse the effect Linda who suffered

00:19:14--> 00:19:37

not at all what he never did in solid during a true wedge. A true was truthful words. Why do as we explained before is translated as ecstasy. What is means what it comes from what other what other means found found, you know, so found the causes of spiritual

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

joy rapture.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

And, and it's not always joy it is

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

what it could be a variety of feelings.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

So it depends on on the spiritual imports. If you're feeling more than his majesty, then

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

The word, the spiritual feeling would be one of fear, restlessness. If you're feeling more the, you know, his beauty,

00:20:11--> 00:20:16

the feelings of contentment and joy, pleasure, ecstasy.

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

Okay, so he's talking about the moment, you know, one of the definition of the moment is that, you know, this, this is basically a time where you have intense feelings. So you're hyper aware,

00:20:32--> 00:20:45

you are hyper aware, you're living the moment because you have words, do you have intense feelings, most of the time, people have very limited feelings. They're just, they're just there.

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

You're just there, you're not even paying attention to the fact that you're breathing or anything, you're just there. Most of the time, you're sitting there thinking about what you will do

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

tomorrow,

00:21:00--> 00:21:24

not thinking about the present or not basically making any use of the present, thinking about the past, thinking about the future and so on. But what is the the intense feelings that we talked about before it's, you know, when you when you have procure those causes of spiritual rapture, and you have these intense feelings that could result in some rhythmic movements, or some physical manifestations,

00:21:25--> 00:21:31

but with gracefulness, and dignity and composure, so?

00:21:33--> 00:21:51

So he's talking about this Wednesday? Why is it? Why is he talking about the words for living in the moment because of the intense feelings because he wants you to be aware, even hyper aware, and when you have this webs, they have these intense, intense spiritual feelings, you are hyper

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

alive.

00:21:55--> 00:22:06

So he says, He now has been set up during a true wedge the resulting from experiencing the anansi via a fog Lin, just about who's

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

experiencing the glow of grace, brought by pure hope.

00:22:13--> 00:23:06

The, the fabulous, it's the glow of grace, the divine grace on you, the divine bounties on you when you feel them when you are aware of them, Java who suffer, and you will feel them and be aware of them. When you have good thoughts of your Lord, when you have hope. And you have good thoughts of your Lord, you will better feel the grace of your Lord. So the glow of this grace that is brought by pure hope, pure hope, that what what is the difference between hope and pure hope. Hope is when you think about you that your be that when you expect compensation for something that you have done. Pure hope is when you expect the favors

00:23:07--> 00:23:21

for nothing on your part like in in return for nothing because you understand that his grace is just his grace, it's predetermined before you have done anything. And whatever it is that you do is not

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

is not basically an insufficient price for his grace. It is never a sufficient price for his grace. So that's why you have pure hope. It is the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala it is not anything that I do it is that

00:23:40--> 00:23:44

he is gracious that that's all so pure, who

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

said who how often.

00:23:51--> 00:24:09

So experiencing the glow of grace brought by pure hope or the blow of might brought by true fear the blow of might brought by true fear. Plasma is the blow of mind brought by the Buddha said to have been true fear.

00:24:12--> 00:24:26

As we said what, you know, you can experience the sort of the attributes of Majesty the attributes of beauty, and depending on which attributes you're experiencing, or you're feeling the result will be different.

00:24:27--> 00:24:34

Will litella who will be okay, so that's what will be a result from me, you know, in the plasma.

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

Half an hour later, I will be shouting just about who's the aroma hub or the heat of yearning brought by the blazing love. So the glow of grace brought by pure hope the blow of mine brought by true fear or the heat of yearning, brought by the blazing love. And if you look at the last three words that he mentioned,

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

Hear in these three sentences. The first one is Raja and the second is called the law. The last is muhabba hope, fear, love, aren't those the motivations are, you know three motivations for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala primarily, I'm happy, you know, so if you fly to Allah with muhabba

00:25:26--> 00:25:39

and the two wings of hope and fear, that will balance out your direction to Allah subhanaw taala but the the movie the sort of the main

00:25:40--> 00:25:45

propelling energy here is your habit, the hope and fear will

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

sort of balance your direction.

00:25:52--> 00:26:24

Then this is so that's the first the meaning of timeliness or preparedness or appropriateness or time or appropriate time and or living the moment capturing the moment all of those meanings that pertain to the station when he said what mazzani is monitor at salicornia zero Bayonetta McLean what Allah would like to know who electromech Lima Hua yes local Halliwell taffy to

00:26:25--> 00:26:41

federate, mu he has a goofy him. What do you metal houfy he sabella who Bay Noma he said Ramana says his monotherapy salic the second meaning pertains to the path of a traveler.

00:26:42--> 00:27:02

You see Robaina to McQueen with alone, moving between establishment and variability that can now electromech who are yes Lockwood hello and toffee to enter in. But he is closer to establishment walking down the road of Halle spiritual state and paying attention to knowledge

00:27:04--> 00:27:24

for the animal is going to feed him one hand we are committed Wolfie movie him. The knowledge occupies him at times and the hell carries him at times. fabella Obaidullah his dilemma between them, causes him to and then he will talk about what the results of this the results the results of this condition.

00:27:25--> 00:28:10

So he says the second meaning pertains to the path of a traveler moving between establishment and variability, but he's closer to establishment walking down the road of having spiritual state and paying attention to knowledge. That knowledge occupies him at times and the healthcare is Emma times his dilemma between them causes him to and then he will talk about the results. So okay, so he's talking here about someone who's walking between Temecula antelope, and the McDonald's establishment and I want him to from level one, which is color, you know, so he's talking about, because different colors, the, you know, we're always having different occupations, different willings and different

00:28:10--> 00:28:26

religions and different occupations, here we are in a state of television by nature of our humanity, but also not by nature of our humanity by the divine command as well. Because you have to basically

00:28:27--> 00:28:58

do what Allah demands of you at different times, because he does not demand to be one thing at all times, you know, when it is time for paradise for hosting the guests then that should be your occupation, when it is time for the salaat That should be your occupation, when it is time to tend to your family and to their needs, if that is basically the you know your occupation. So that is Cologne, right?

00:28:59--> 00:29:33

variability. Because we are human, where we don't where we don't stay in one state. That Macron is establishment is where Macron usually refers to your state of togetherness with Allah subhanaw taala. Here in a state of togetherness with Allah, before the shift, the highest would be the complete absorption into the divine, where you don't feel your presence anymore, or we don't behold your presence anymore. But as we said further is not necessary. It is not the highest station.

00:29:34--> 00:30:00

You could always come by in between that I would enter Mac, not between Toronto and Auckland, but between your two governments with a law and your variability of occupations. Your variability of occupations should not prevent you from being together with all the time and that is where the pain points out. There should be no reason to create a conflict between the heart and iron between

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

In the spiritual state and the demands of knowledge, there should be no reason to,

00:30:06--> 00:30:11

you know, to say that the there is a conflict, although they are not synonymous.

00:30:13--> 00:30:33

And they're not mutually inclusive either, you know, people have great had may not have that much knowledge, they may be spiritually advanced, they may be, you know, the devoted, devoted to Allah subhanaw taala, to a great, great extent, much more than many, many, many scholars.

00:30:34--> 00:30:46

So, that, you know, we're not talking about two things that are mutually inclusive, your heart is different for men. And the same applies to iron. You know, there are many scholars who may not be particularly

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

attentive to their enter state.

00:30:56--> 00:31:07

There are scholars that that are also not pious to begin with, or not observant of the hell, in,

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

in any way, shape or form.

00:31:11--> 00:31:20

It is obvious that had an enemy that the spiritual state, the Interstate, and I admire are not synonymous. Right, they're not mutually inclusive.

00:31:21--> 00:31:26

But they are not mutually exclusive either. contrarily they should.

00:31:28--> 00:32:16

If there is any type of relationship between them, it's a symbiotic synergistic relationship. The good hand, the good had, should entice you to learn about your lower than his mosers. And that good Rn should motivate you to improve your energy state, and should not only motivate you to improve your error state, but should also give you the tools to do it in the proper way. Because you can't please a lie except with well, Allah had, you know, decree that it will be pleasing to Him, and to know how to please Him you need to learn about his pleasures and what is the most appropriate way. And if you don't follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or his prescription, then you may be trying,

00:32:17--> 00:33:08

but there is a difference between someone who's trying with knowledge and Basilan and insight and someone who's not. So they're not mutually exclusive OR inclusive, there are they have this sort of symbiotic relationship and that is what we should always think of highlight ahead, but that she can say that because I am and my would motivate you to respond to the demands of the time. This is the proper time for this this the proper design for that hand would pull you to your togetherness with Allah subhanaw taala. So, if you completely surrender to your hair, you will be in seclusion do Invicta and absorbed into absorbed into your sort of zip code and your union with a lot smarter tada

00:33:08--> 00:33:20

in the Sydney sense you know that the vanishing of your will into his well you know your absorption, the absorption of your food the absorption of or the vanishing

00:33:21--> 00:33:41

annihilation of the EU all of the perceptions except your perception of the Divine because all of the kinds of things and things or you know become so insignificant in your perception and your perception of the Divine makes them vanish any comparison between the infinite and the finite will make the finite

00:33:43--> 00:33:52

you know, like zero like vanish in your perception. So, the anyway but but, but that is what

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

pulls you towards but I am

00:33:58--> 00:34:10

demands of you to be attentive to the, to the variable occupations of the different times. So you're walking between the chef is saying that you're walking down the road of hand paying attention

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

because you are seeking to get the establishment

00:34:17--> 00:34:46

and it is not like you're walking down the road of me paying attention to hair, you're walking down the road of have been attention time and can we just define this, we have to say please let us never create a conflict between Hannah and I and no conflict. Let us understand the difference between had an iron but never create a conflict between them because a conflict with between them could result in completes and that our blasphemy.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

a conflict between them could result in complete blasphemy. Why? Because if you say that, you know there is a conflict then you will give up on it. You'll give up on the center. You'll give up on it here.

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

This is an NA, you'll just be with your head, your spiritual state, whatever procures greater imports for you, that's what you follow. And at one time, you may be doing things that are completely, completely on prescribed completely, you know,

00:35:18--> 00:36:04

unprecedented because you feel, and those feelings could be just our hand, it could be your mere feelings, natural imports from the divine, they could even be imports from the, you know, the straight line to further misguide you into what you're doing. So, actually a conflict between had an enemy could read blasphemy, so let's never can create the conflict between her and again, that is be aware of the difference between her and him and never create a conflict. But can we justify the statement that you're walking down the road of hand, pay attention to and you're not walking down the road and pay attention to the head? can you justify that statement? Yes, because what is the

00:36:04--> 00:36:16

objective and more head, hand is the objective item is the tool enemies the necessary tool, but how does the objective is an enemy the objective?

00:36:19--> 00:37:08

You say the enemy in terms of your awareness of the of the of your awareness of the Divine is an objective your awareness of the Divine, but an enemy in the term in terms of you know, your the technical, the technical sense, not your awareness, your inner awareness of the Divine end and in terms of not modify the inner time in terms of the technical sense, whatever we will discuss today when we talk about the chapter bequests Is this the tool or the object objective? It is the tool. And then the objective is your closeness to allies here is your nearest or last pinata and so on. So, yes, it makes sense, given that we do not create a conflict, given that we do not feel that they

00:37:08--> 00:37:25

are mutually exclusive, or that there is a conflict between them, there is continuity, there is synergy between them, even though they are somewhat different. So he says here that you're walking down this path,

00:37:27--> 00:37:53

you know, the road have had a pet the path of a traveler moving between establishment and variability, but he's closer to the establishment walking down the road of Han and paying attention to knowledge, the knowledge occupies him at times, as we said, the knowledge, you know, demands different things of you at different times, which could create a little bit of dispersion, the Federal, you know, where you feel just distraction, you know,

00:37:55--> 00:38:03

but the hat pulls you back, and as we said, you could combine them simultaneously and that is that is

00:38:06--> 00:38:25

the ultimate success, to combine them simultaneously. So, you are in a state of Gemini, even during fire, you are in a state of togetherness with a lot even during the variability of your occupations. How do you do this, like I said, and you know, in the document I sent to you how mosaic

00:38:27--> 00:38:58

is perceived as one whole, right? Even though it has different colors and pieces. Why? Because it has one theme, as long as it has one theme. It is perceived as as, as one whole, one sound whole, despite the different colors and pieces, because it has one theme. And if you make the theme of your life, in a salon, so you want to be over here, at the layer below the mean.

00:38:59--> 00:39:29

Then you can combine the German folk together, if the theme of your life, my prayer, my offerings, my living, and my line, are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds, then that's the theme of your life, that the variability of your occupations will be within this context. That is the governing theme of your life. So whenever you are working, you know if you're

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

at your restaurant, if you're an architect, if you're like, whatever, whatever job you're doing, even at work, you're doing when was perfection because you're because you're watching it because because that's what you should be doing as a Muslim ID card and so on and so on. And you understand that it is important that you sort of project the right image and you understand that you're doing this for your kids.

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

You're like, your your household or you're trying to earn a wholesome living because you do not want to earn haram and you don't want you want to stay away from haram and so on and so forth. So that the seam here of your life that is dictating what you're doing at this moment is in the salon to scrape my hand on it, that layer of anatomy, my my prayer life and my offerings, my living and my dying are all for Allah. So the spider differ, the variability of the occupations, are you together with Allah? Yes, you are.

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

You could

00:40:41--> 00:41:08

continue to be, but certainly you want to continue to be mindful of Allah. That's why mindfulness of Allah all the time, the sacred of your heart, the remembrance of your heart, even though if you're not engaged, then you know verbal remembrance by the tango. But the vicar of your heart means means what? Your constant mindfulness of Allah, if you have that state of constant mindfulness of a lie, you are in a state of joy all the time.

00:41:10--> 00:41:55

together this with a look. So the chef says, you know, because the hat and the M are two different things, the sheikh said he is having this dilemma between them paying attention to em and paying attention to have the dilemma causes him to use eco who the shoe who then power on, causes him to taste the shoe that one phase, where Xue hai Ratan tawaran, and become engrossed in jealousy to add another while re glabrata for rockin tawaran see the smudge of dispersion at yet another phase is equal to the power and taste the shoe that one phase that is the route of the Divine through the totality of his Safar to the appearance of his manifestations, to the heart,

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

the appearance of his attributes to the heart,

00:42:02--> 00:42:27

or the manifestation of his attributes to the heart wakfu via tantaran becoming engrossed in jealousy at another that is the jealousy of people who surpass you in their head. Because you are the dilemma you are between the item and the head. And sometimes you pay more attention to em and people surpass you at hand. And then you look at those people and you are jealous, because they surpassed you in half.

00:42:29--> 00:42:39

Way rehabilitate the further up in Taiwan see this image of dispersion at yet another phase and we said this much of dispersion is your meaning your lack of whole

00:42:41--> 00:42:50

basically, homeless togetherness with Allah subhanaw taala because of your variability of occupations, and we didn't talk enough about

00:42:51--> 00:43:19

then he said the Amana cell is the last you know and the last one we will go over it quickly because you understand what the chief has been talking about. For instance, the beginning he's talking about he's dedicating this third phase to finance to annihilations we set for now is not a necessary bridge to subsistence with a love for Allah by Allah which is the highest station which is the station of the Sahaba of wanderlei era him

00:43:20--> 00:43:40

when we combine the between German for the the you know and the combined between Harlan ahem and the combined between the interior and exterior and combine the between everything seamlessly and harmoniously. Baka is the highest station to subsist with Allah by Allah for Allah

00:43:41--> 00:43:57

and Farah is not necessary. So that is why I will go over this particular phase, but certainly you cannot get to the bucket except with the with experience with seeking the the mothering Sydney

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

understanding of finance, which is basically the your your perception of the Divine Will make every your perception of everything else fade out. So you're always observant of the Divine paying attention to the divine, it and the other one is sort of that's kind of a shoo in for that is that your will, when vanish,

00:44:23--> 00:44:59

not necessarily vanish, but would conform to his well as if it vanished, as if it vanished, as if is extremely important. That is the distinction. Because the vanishing of your will means that you are not existence as an entity. You're not existence as a being two wills means two beings, one which means one being and we are not God and the divine is not history there is there is a creator and there is a creation, and they are different from each other. So therefore your will will never vanished, you know, in the sense of how

00:45:01--> 00:45:02

Just having no way whatsoever.

00:45:03--> 00:45:31

If there is someone prostrating before someone else, we're having two different wills. And if you continue to prostrate hopefully and die before your Lord, then you you were talking about two different waves, but that when it's conforming to the to the other world, that word is conforming to the other world. And that conformity is that sort of, we could say that all as if it vanished your will vanish because it never is.

00:45:34--> 00:45:46

Basically, this harmonious or in conflict with his will soprano Todd, the chick said, When mama said his car would walk to help, the third meaning, they said time is the true one.

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

You know, usually they use that haka, but I explained this before, because

00:45:54--> 00:46:04

they want to say that everything else is you know, all contingent beings are not the true one The Origin The first cause, and the final cause.

00:46:06--> 00:46:09

He says, Our Adobe is the Karatbars network, if you will do that, what

00:46:11--> 00:46:28

they meant by that the absorption of the form of time into the reality of the true one, the meant by that the absorption of the form of time into the reality of the true one, here, the moment itself will vanish, because the moment itself,

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

it's about time. And when you think of the Divine as

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

timeless, how do we think of the Divine as timeless, that divine is not bound by time we are in time he the divine is not bound by time, but that does not mean that the divine is not

00:46:50--> 00:47:27

has no successive, but at least in my sort of athletic body type of thinking, that the divine has no successive weddings, the divine has successive weddings, that is that does not mean that the his knowledge is not eternal or pre eternal, it is pre eternal, is not as pre eternal, successive weddings is basically successive volitions it is basically to bring about things to existence colau Madhavi Shan every day he is he is tending to a different affair, or doing something different.

00:47:29--> 00:47:35

Continuously creating and maintaining his creation.

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

And his creation is a time creation

00:47:41--> 00:47:48

is a, you know, time creation, and to engage with time creation, you engage with the time creation temporarily,

00:47:50--> 00:47:56

successively, but we say that the virus timeless in the sense that the divine is not bound by time.

00:47:58--> 00:48:02

It is not a spirit, it's not, as I mentioned, that he is in.

00:48:04--> 00:48:11

And that's the same that we say about the spatial dimension. The Divine is not bounded by a spatial dimension.

00:48:13--> 00:48:22

But in our study, Hanbury thought the divine is, you know, stepped out of ours is above the Throne.

00:48:23--> 00:48:34

But still, we're not saying that the divine is bounded by any spatial dimension. We're not saying the high use bounded by a spatial dimension.

00:48:35--> 00:48:43

And even we're not saying Do you have we're not using all of these words, we're not saying direction, in the sense in any

00:48:44--> 00:49:16

sort of suboptimal or inappropriate sense. We're not using, you know, those different terms that have not been used by how long His Messenger we just described a law by that which he described himself. So we're not saying that the divine has a direction in that sense. We're we're not saying that the divine is bounded by spatial dimension. Certainly, if you say that, that is just like, a grave mistake. We're saying that our man is, is above the Throne.

00:49:18--> 00:49:35

But he's not bound by those dimensions. The same applies to time also the divine is not bound by time, but the divine does the divine do things at different times? Yes, because we are His creations, we are his effect.

00:49:37--> 00:49:51

And he is in control all the time of the of his creation, and creating more and more things all the time.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

So that's the that's an important distinction to keep in mind, particularly if he says

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

Describe to my hand very sad perspective on these issues.

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

And if you don't, then we can continue to be friends.

00:50:15--> 00:50:17

Just finished quickly.

00:50:18--> 00:51:03

So I've worked at hochkar. adobe is the graph crosswalk tool, if you do that hack will have a manager that is Mindy Lachman, who was once he had monotherapies, the he, the he needed Alaska for the healing to the Lhasa fee resume cash fund that will do the model. Okay, so let's talk about customer. But like I said, well, so the moment itself is about time and the essence of the Divine is not bound by time. And then you compare the, this to the divine, and if you're absorbed into the divine, the moment will vanish into infinity, compare the you know, that our time whatever time to eternity, and it will just vanish

00:51:04--> 00:51:18

into the this into the divine reality. So, they meant by that absorption of the form of time into the reality of the true one, he said, we have a man that is Marandi.

00:51:20--> 00:51:24

He said this meeting is too difficult to be applied to this name.

00:51:25--> 00:51:46

Because he he sees you know, he's thinking that time is about your time. Probably that's why he's feeling that this may it's very hard to apply the name of time to the true one, because he thinks that the true one is beyond time and before time, and we're talking now about your time.

00:51:49--> 00:52:06

But then he tries to justify why they say that and he says however in this third sense, however, in this third sense, it is a name for the vanishing of forms, not in reality but in disclosure in perception.

00:52:07--> 00:52:59

So it's the name of Vanishing of all forms including the form of Time, time is also one of the forms get out to him, you know, because it has to do with the creation because the Creator is not bound by time so time has to do with a creation it's one of the forms. So your perception of the Divine the the pre or post the eternal, the eternal pre and post you know and past and future your perception of the Divine Will make every form vanish even time itself. He says well open back the way he says the Treasury resume cash flow to the mountain he says cash flow louder than cash flow in your perception that we'll do the modern math in reality because you understand that that we exist and so

00:52:59--> 00:53:15

on It is only that in your perception that these things vanish well first of all of open Berkeley what was the he says that it would it is that the that station of timeliness

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

is above lightning and West is above lightning and was the which is what we explained before? He says what will shout it from a common agenda Hello, Donna we're back here What I did was lacking

00:53:32--> 00:53:59

it would approach the station of union if it were to continue while it does not reach the value of will dude which the value of what Jude which is actuality I translate with you that's actuality and we will come to it we'll do this station number 96 in this book, it is one of the highest stations where you will need to pay a lot of attention because it will you know it will be very difficult when we get to those stations.

00:54:01--> 00:54:04

Navigating those stations will be very difficult anyway

00:54:06--> 00:54:42

lacking now but the that station of timeliness. Yeah CFI monitor mama Spears, one of the burdens of service because service will be light you will be carried. You will not have to endure through service. You will enjoy service and will not take from your energy it will provide you the energy and the service of your Lord. So you're you're propelled. You're not you're not making mcgaha here, you're not striving against yourself to serve. You're actually being propelled, you're being pulled

00:54:43--> 00:55:00

to the service. It is energy that is coming from outside. So spares are one of the burdens of service when it was off the island Masai Mara and purifies the intimate dialogue. So the intimate dialogue was with the Divine Will not be corrupted by this track.

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

You're not be dialoguing with anything but him.

00:55:06--> 00:55:20

When you say more I had what you'd have let's one smell the fragrance of actuality. And we will talk about what you do when we come to the station to that station Station Number 96

00:55:22--> 00:55:24

CUDA probably have a structural biological Chronicle
