swept in, I was reflecting on our Fox yesterday.
Because I know that mostly
was reflecting on the talk yesterday, I set myself to this, this one characteristic of accent is how
we get frustrated, as Muslims because we feel that we have no control over the fear.
We have no control over what's happening in the world, we have no control over the verse, you know,
that contention between the East and the West tension between
And we have no control over even the rest of the
country control anything or change anything also that this does not mean. This does not mean fetus does not mean to get into the dustbin and try to take precautions
and do your best. Many of us get that we have like art, most of us feel that we have no control, but we do have control over one person.
And all you're required to do is to make sure that this one person this represents them in the most beautiful way. And if this one person
make sure that in every interaction with Elon Musk,
walk away, walk away. Thinking of Muslims as competent and compassionate isn't about perfection, excellence, kindness, you know, beauty
in every interaction, at work school, with your neighbors in every interaction, you
you actually women
that person walked away with this impression that you are and you know that you're Muslim.
that he walked away with that impression, this
impression that this Muslim is confident that this accent excellence perfection or what sound means and compassion,
concerning every method concerning all matters, so every interaction you are
in person, will you be making a difference? Yes, you are making a difference.
Regardless of the magnitude of that difference, that is all you're required to do.
basically your commitment, your own commitments, yes, if you continue to do this and you have fulfilled your own pain and it does not matter when
you have fulfilled your own commitment. Keep in mind this is
because it is impossible that I can get equals even if I
if I hope it will be farther away for Is it possible to hire for this is possible for the sisters, this isn't just
me. This is possible that they come forward a little bit because I
I was given my photography
When is the first time
so that is that is all we need to do. That's all very hard to do and we will fulfill our commitment if we do this and we
now talk about
this talk about
that he loves
I mean, I
have this picture for the people of the book fire ghosts, are some who if you entrust them with cantar in English is 100 way it's a hoard of gold, it's a large amount of gold,
they will readily paid back to you. And there are some who if they if you entrusted them with one coin of gold, one dinar, one coin go, they will not pay back to you unless you're standing over the persistent demand in it for them.
That is because the center is no blame upon us concerning our dealings with enemy concerning our dealings with the under the indenture, the Gentiles,
there is no way we will not be held accountable. We will only be held accountable concerning our dealings with our own co religionists, but not with us when inserting your meaning. So that will mean the other people
and the same false the fabricate lies above.
knowing why are they no?
Yes, yes, they will be held accountable. Yes, there is blame
the people deserve concerning the dealings or their, you know, violations of the rights of the owner, or people of the other nations. And we have to keep in mind that this is
will be addressed.
Because there are some of us who say that it doesn't matter what I do to people who are not Muslim,
or not many of us, and certainly not the learning among us, but there are some of us who have this notion that you know, there is a little bit of leniency,
commitment, whoever fulfills this commitment and so
but there is a thread here every time
it will talk about people who pray or fast or do any of them. And indeed,
it was about people who have
karma in their dealings, straightness, rectitude, branches dealings, you know, they uphold their pledges that commitment
and has to do with interactions with people and more, you know, upholding your commitment, honoring your commitment
In your dealings with people, a lot of them have been here and about 70,000 in two verses in sort of
the beginning of South
America thing with
the first one, except for those of them Chretien with whom you have
a treaty or
fail you in anything in demand for store is basically for short and discharging their obligations towards you towards that commitment between you and them that covenant between you and the outcome, the terms of the contract, and the short and the
What have you
got support anyone against you
then complete their contract, then complete the term of the contract until its end. In Ohio. Again, very, very a lot of
this has to do with
fulfilling your clench your commitment towards people.
And those people are
machico. So, the first time
the last thing it was about, you know, they said that we will not have it, there is no blame or loss concerning our dealings with older people,
your peers that
you're bound to uphold the same versus the same values with everybody.
And then in this verse, Allah is telling us Muslims, that you should fulfill the contract the term of the contract, as long as they have not reached that you do not reach it.
And then the other verse in
how could demonstrate it, but
how could that how can even have a coffin in the sight of Allah and His Messenger
except those with whom you
conducted the treaty by sacred must
as long as they are upright, with you be upright with
as long as the key to approximate uprightness straightness be straight with the most common straightness practice practice uprightness.
As long as they are upright with you, you should also be upright with enough
Burundi alone. And so, every time,
every time the last one I
have to do with those dealings with other people and people that are every time not your fellow Muslims or fellow religions, but people of other faiths groups or people who are conservative
the first thing that we want to reflect on is
as long as there are practices you should also be applied to them in the life he did not say.
We mean, as if they are interchangeable is the common taqwa as if they are interchangeable, as long as they are frank with you used to be upright with them for very long
as if they are interchangeable, and you will find that
all those values have a great deal of overlap with each other. So sometimes, sometimes even if it comes down to splitting hairs between some of these values, but every one is has its own distinction. So even is the common law.
If laws weren't covered,
there is some degree of overlap.
We're all in
between all of them
can there be overlap between absolutely there's overlap between acquiring knowledge
How could someone fear a lot when he does not know when he should be aware and conscious of what he should be avoiding?
He doesn't know he should be avoided, he doesn't have the knowledge
to basically avoid the displeasure
war please a lot of what this what this piece is a lot where he has limited knowledge. So, the more knowledgeable you become the more capable equipped to fear of us
have been a better
version The those who fear Allah often servants are discovered because they know how to fear they know what they should be avoided.
So, there is overlap, but here philosophy is common, they are interchangeable and they are
interchangeable even though each one has its own implications. And it is looking
from a different angle. But if that is basically is basically to be conscious of Allah subhanaw taala and be watchful of your your actions
interface or this overlap between
there is a beautiful answer. It was reported from every writer and it was also from obey.
Obey was asked by Oracle, you can imagine the knowledge of
the wisdom of our puppy goes to another hobby
great song, great song.
But certainly you compare
the day. So he goes to a Sahabi that is not of this
caliber. And he says them will tell me about
he is trying to get more insight, he knows that if he asks,
he will be able to basically broaden his
or to give them more insight.
So you can come and ask us in about
hour just like
the parables they use the examples.
So the bank account goes to him and tells him what
we talked about.
Okay, so he said, Why?
across the thorny founder and owner of Saudi Arabia, what what have you done? What do you do, you lift up your garments, and so on. So when it comes to combat and stuff, so in this case, we want to translate that what as what visuals? How could if you were to be vigilant, if you're truly vigilant and you know that Allah Subhana, Allah, the password was profila is one, and it is the straight one. And any basically, deviation from that state pass is a deviation into misguidance. And if you're truly diligent in your religious commitment, and Moscow and visit, you're always fearful of leaving the past, you will always be stripped.
You will always be missed. You'll always be stripped, because you're always watching for the milestones on the two sides of that straight path. You're always watching for any sort of misleading path, you're reading the signs that you you're being careful that you don't take any misleading paths that may be curved a little bit to the right a little bit to the left. And you're staying on that straight path because that is the path that is the shortest
route to a loss. So there is a great deal of overlap and that's why
When he was asked about Aqua, Aqua Aquila, they said the CRM the one of the one of the main evatik were lacking.
Law is not about fasting or praying or mixing the two
basically doing the machine commander avoiding that.
upon us the the expression he talked about this
is a beautiful expression. He said, This the karma
It is to be straight on the commands and prohibitions of a loss.
And do not be Foxy or do not wear avoid the craftiness, that deceitfulness of faxes. Don't beat around the bush, don't be deceitful in your relationship with a boss. Be straight. Don't be deceitful. Don't be like Fox, Fox, when you deal with a lot of deceitful crafty, sly.
there is that great overlap between
them the next the next thing that we want to be aware of is,
is the top one
being that it is vigilance.
Watching, you know, you're afraid, you're concerned that you will slip you will hear concerning that you will be picked by a phone. This is it is for the band, because there are often patients, and there is a lot of misguidance around you.
And allows us to sort of misconceptions and say fine is not

closer to us.
valleys pulling you from every direction.
And he's actually pulling you from four directions
about the foreigners and their own sort of
position with the last caller, he commanded prostrate lead about prostate cancer.
Now, threaten us in front of us in our prisons, and threatened us.
And then I will come to them from the front and the back and the right side and the left side and you will not find most of them grateful. That's what they told us last continent from the front, from the back from the right from the left, and you will not find most of them right. Before I tell you about the four things the forward directions, the four different directions
ensuring that regardless of this plus, if you're connected to us,
if the hacker between you on the road between you and
us did not commit, you did not
abandon your relationship with us.
Attempt I said he said that he will attack from all four directions but he did not say that he will attack from the top because he will never be able to obstruct the mercy of Allah and he knows alone are not permitted to obstruct His mercy. Merci This stands upon us as long as we keep the rope with a loss of power.
And we keep our connection with us.
We voice that relationship to the last
two be straight in connection with a loss
he is your source of strength and
Is your source of power
against the main adversary
from the front, what is how does he attack from the
dunya in our eyes, it memorizes the way he makes the video so beautiful. He makes us heedless of the transience of the learning, are we really fully conscious of the transience of
being very temporary, very short.
So he glamorize the dunya. And he gives us this whole slum in the dunya. And that is how he attacks from the front. And how is he attacked from the back,
the law best
interpret the attack from the front, as you know,
he would memorize the video for beautified for
the dounia in their eyes, and then the attack from the back is the results about
this, this is really what is what is
in the races now,
there is now
in the sense that he cannot really make us doubt
he will obstruct us from being mindful of
and some people.
But if you will not be doubted, and actually you're very comfortable, you're very stable established in your belief in Allah subhanaw taala. After and the year after,
I will be doing this to make you forgetful,
you know, neglectful,
just basically tries to push you away from the focus of your consciousness, just pushed a little bit to the side your site, to the back of your mind so that it is not in the focus of your awareness. And that's what he does all the time,
by so many things. And then
and then he will attack from the right, by making it very distasteful and appealing to us.
To attack from the left by making the car very tempting to us.
So that one basically, is to have a Wi Fi. Is is not
it's not about treatments about prevention, right.
It's even applicable in medicine. It's a preventative approach to the issue of email. That was a preventative, preventative approach to you know, your relationship with robots, to your face to treatment
Wikipedia is what prevention, treatment that alleges treat
So taqwa is to be vigilant and to try to avoid anything that will make you
fail in your,
in your journey to a loss of power.
And you have to move away from the right, with fire from the left with fire from the front to the fire from the back. How do you do this
fire from the front is basically to reflect on the nature of this.
And understand how unpredictable our unworthy is. And I have from the back, you protect yourself from the plot against you, from the concept stacked against you from the back is by reflecting on who you're after and making sure that it does not leave your center, the center of your attention by being reminded all the time reminding yourself
of time to discuss how maybe the future some point and then retire from the writing side by basically

So he's saying that I'm seeing the eyes of my heart. And if I see them with the eyes in my head, that does not make a difference, because the eyes of my heart, my heart, are just as good.
