So, we have
try for as much as we can
start by talking about
what we've covered so far is
in Surah Baqarah last
the rulings of the menstrual period
should not be approached during the menstrual period after the average for bath
the virtual lab
those who purify themselves
the bunker or purification is mentioned here is like the physical verification is like the physical verification method at the same time does not mean that it will not entertain
or if not to it will not to the spiritual verification factor
about loving the ones who purify their exterior with water
purify their interior from sins and sicknesses and the sickness of the heart. So, the answer now,
by the preferential analogy, you would extend this to the purification of the interior
the exterior is less important than the purification of the interior for short.
He says that he loves those who purify themselves and this
purifying their exterior
by taking original path or by cleaning themselves or removing knowledge assets or films or food bodies, then by the preferencia analogy,
certainly more books to purify their interior wash their interior
basically inserting into being here, actually.
So, why is being inserted here
because I'm talking about anyway.
They're asking about menstrual period, then then it's harmful, so that the approach survives during the most for fear of purifying themselves
and approach them in the way prescribed to you by law in the lab
So what, what kinds of purification Do we have, and it's down
to it can be divided into three. So, purification of the interior purification of the exterior
via the application of exterior
purification of the interior. And the purification of makes there can be further divided into
basically, the original purification and the physical purification, ritual verification is basically the state of being ready for
verification, if you're ready for brand new verification,
you're ready to press Ray. So, you are in a state of ritual purity and
physical purification is 30
films of your body and your place of prayer.
So, your body or gardening can hear.
So, this is pretty much all
that we have.
So, this is directly addressing the physical purification, physical purification, addressing
both physical and virtual because
then they have purify themselves means that the the there is no more bleeding anymore, so there's no physical impurity anymore. And they have taken racial class. So they have removed the the spiritual purity as well. And the by the professor analogy, as we said, It will also include the spiritual purification, you're trying to apart from the sicknesses and illnesses,
purifying the heart from diseases, and then it must
is your means to internal purification isn't always your means to your internal purification, it washes your heart just like water washes your body
washes your heart, just like water washes your body.
And the difference between the people who
isn't that true all of them
are prone to error.
The difference between some of them and others is that there are those who are basically out there their own Russia, they are intolerant of their own heedlessness, once they notice that they have their hearts are harder than
once they notice that they are a little distant from above, once they notice that they don't see
the beauty and the sweetness of that email anymore. They're quick to
holding themselves accountable. They're quick to
revision of themselves and their actions and their their condition and correctly.
So basically, their statement needs this. This is just like the cloud
the process of allowing someone
to come home
they are in the desert.
There is not a part except it has clouds like the clouds of the moon, while the moon is shining, cloud covered. So it became dark, and then moved away. And it shone again.
Why the moon is shining a cloud. You see this all the time. You see, cloud covers
our cloud, the light of the
clothes off, and then the cloud passes on and shines again. And that is the heart of the believer.
Also the believer gets those thoughts, the profits of
the arts, because those clouds, they will, they're inevitable, they will for sure come.
that the lever
does not sit, it doesn't cover, it doesn't see it, can the cloud cover the moon
there is a huge distance between the cloud and the clouds cannot cover it.
It just keeps the light
off for for a little while.
here, he may not have even committed the same is just you know, he's not feeling right. He's not feeling the same. And, and then he quickly looks for a fix for this with the tries to find out how I take care of my heart and how to resolve this this this this problem and then the cloud
there is the
black love the black sentiment to black sentiments and heart
he says is as another movement galaxy
on his heart
and if he quits, he returns when he gives up the same
stop pharmacy he asks for forgiveness is hard to be polished again. So, as far as
this settlement will be bringing
and if he carries on or he increases in it will increase the blood
spot will increase. And more of
that is that is the covering is the scene that a lot mentioned in his book.
I've covered the artist perceive the customer's behalf
or the sins they have heard for the sins they have committed.
So, in this regard is just like the water does washes off the black dots is exactly like the water that was washing internally
from the darkness. And
is not just watching. You know the spiritual or spiritual purification is not merely watching your heart is not merely boxing apart from those lepers It is also looking after the soundness of your heart, the health of your heart, how healthy it is. So it
is a very complex process.
And it includes topics included in
the very broad sense of what the power means is it is the exterior and interior secure, exterior clarification of the interior
purification of interior. It doesn't only have to do with raising blood guts of your heart or removing the
torch or any supplements quickly from your heart has to do with removing the sicknesses of your heart that will make you prone to sin, the diseases the sicknesses, the illness, the shortcomings, failures of your heart that will make you prone to saying
for the our sense in and of themselves. But many people don't pay attention to those things. You know how many people pay attention to
is basically believe
is sufficient evil for some person to despise his fellow Muslim. So there's nothing any any action.
It could be the homeless person, and he would have enough evil inside your heart. You're so evil, despite
there are people that are humble because of social smart. A lot of people are just so smart. It is smart to be humble.
People are smart
rule people are just, you know, they're not. It's not a, it's not that they're only they're the only ones that love you. But the rule was the the people that actually would serve to show you that they despise you, that they're looking down at you, harder than people learn from the
good despise you internally, they could look down at you.
And they could be full of arrogance. And they're just a nicest and most humble people externally. So
this is fine, despising interleaver is an internal disease of ours.
You know, there is there is nothing tangible here. You don't you don't say anything bad, you don't do anything. That fear your arrogance since left and right. Just walking through and looking down at people, you know, this one looks
awkward this way.
So if you if you if you if you sacrifice
sort of Australia, concern for him I may I may want
to know when time is right.
to talk to brands
that is not
Look at the front
door it was just
wonderful, to fat.
And when we can, these are things that we're not paying attention to because there are tangible things that can devour you can destroy your house.
So the fact we're here is not only that your defense from the senses is not only that, to avoid sense it is also that you're working on
you're working on leaving
out your heart for most diseases. So, consent
also has to do with not only
is there a place that those sicknesses by
strength, based weakness by strength,
the weakness of your heart basically work out promoting your good qualities, the quality of humbleness,
ability and all those good qualities
and all the qualities they are qualities of the heart. So that
is larger than Kobo now it's wider in scope than
ever before. here because
it is it is attached to sin right
wants to comfort this
wanted to come to the center,
quickly, that even if you send an even if you
dirty yourself with the sin, I would still love you, if you repent, if you quickly repent
can find this through our
last mercy for the sinners who are not proud to eat them or not to hire them to return
them is obvious
the love and compassion and mercy of those weak people that fall and trip and fall, but pretty quickly, because they are not to congregate.
the first one,
in addition to this, in addition to
wanting to control the stairs,
pointed out that repentance in particular
although is is is a positive effort. But sometimes also comes as a second nature, some people are born with a lot of good qualities. So some people have an aversion to stem
naturally, and some people have some sort of strength in their moral character.
But the people who are doing this out of the ocean because it
doesn't happen naturally, right? repentance is about it's about deep regret, about flowing and realizing that you fell and then rising for the sake of love and being regretful for the sake of hope and weeping for the sake of love. And giving up the sin for the sake of Allah even though you're tempted to you fell into it in the first place, because you were tempted by your attractive and you fell into it. But now we are trying to pull away, keep a distance for the sake of Allah. So repentance shows devotion.
You know, there are even people that are not Muslim,
that have aversion to the sins or that have that have some strengths and they're more character.
But it is not for the sake of us. But for the sinners who
is a man of repentance is a clear manifestation of devotion. Because why would you be regretful Why else would you be saddened by your sin? When and why would you try to pull yourself away from something that you that you're attracted to those who are naturally inclined to
it except for the sake of
Toby was mentioned here first, because it is a cleaner side of the ocean
still be open.
as we said is the physical is the exterior and the interior
or purification of
is half of faith.
verification is half
half is he talking about
physical or spiritual or for all forms of
discussion? He says
because there are signs that actually is talking about the racial and physical
the profits of the zoo.
Which would mean that he's actually talking about physical purification here and not spiritual purification and the scars also said if you need special purification, special purification is all
about spiritual purification
the two will be perfect
and that this email
departs from the sicknesses and bring it about health and wellness.
maybe it is physical, but
it will be included in the spreadsheet even if it is addressing the physical purification, purification the exterior, where conventional or physical
to the spiritual purification
and physical activity What do you think?
What do you think for those who purify themselves from spiritual sicknesses and illnesses have
spiritual impurities or spiritual fields?
So, in the event here, it would likely be referring directly to physical and racial verification and
verification and why is it
or half a fever?
Why am I
it means one of two types and imagines about
is one of two types, what are the two types of events that is what Shockley means, it is one out of two times if
it also means that without your heart for diseases to clear your heart, cleanse your heart from filth and then to basically sow the seeds of goodness in your heart that is the other half. So, profound work means just cleansing
is the leaving out of your heart making the soil ready to sow the seeds of goodness. So, that is one half making the soil ready and then actually sowing the seeds of goodness in your heart will be the other
has also said the event here means a lot and
purification is a condition for the validity of Salah as if it is
not acceptable. And that shows you the importance of
so the ban is sometimes used to refer to just
have not wasted your
means here what sort of
wasted your salon towards
towards Jerusalem, so don't worry, it was revealed when the change was
revealed to the Prophet. So
you know we're concerned all of this time all these years
changed, so a lot is comforting.
Also, you know,
don't make up
for space change and I will not waste
prefer to salon here as the man
Say that event here means a lot, which tells you the great importance of SOA
is the mainstay in our phase, the main component
what is the scope
that is our foreheads, and that is solid.
And it is
here and say to yourself, oh my god, like doing justice.
amazing many of these folders
is the vendor. So
just prefer to survive by email them to use email and slide interchangeably. That's
in underscoring the importance of SOA. And the fact that to Hoover which is, which has this great importance of revision is just a condition for the validity of the Soa, it's part of the preparation for the fact that you're required to get ready for slides to prepare for yourself by all of this, ensure
your garden, the cleanliness of your place, and
if you have to, or if you have to, that is also powerful.
That is getting you ready to meet
man looks at you, as long as you are looking at him gives it gives you attention as long as you're giving him attention. And all this preparation is just to get in the right.
Basically hope for the silver is important for us that we
ourselves are taking care of ourselves. Do we feel that we sense the difference?
inside and outside?
You reflected here? So
are you feeling that connection?
Can you actually hear
it, we pray a prayer. And then at the end of the prayer.
We just don't remember what we were doing.
any of that stuff
is actually the prayer prayer that you are required to perform? Is that God that
is actually the direct way of conversing with your maker, your Creator sustainer is not so
each and every one of us
happens five times.
And we keep on saying to ourselves, you know,
can we ask questions
all the time we ask those questions.
And rightly so we need to be asking those questions. But why don't we just be able to find a phrase and give it a little bit more attention carefulness, a little bit more in our focus for sure. concentration in your prayer focus, and see we'll
see if it helps.
But if you're if you put it this preparation
the scars have always
the concept of physical purification, removing the barriers removing the cells of your body, your environment, and this is
the surface balancing
homos and after this
in those who are here to take a bath.
considering the version to not take about three years, or 10 years,
your entire life because it, why is it
because they also the homeless have the old suffering from
between the interior and exterior, and the old stuff that in order for the interior to rise, and transcend,
transcend over the fleshly desires, so that they looked out the exterior, they looked at the exterior,
this and they felt that all of our problems are coming from this mess. And it's not true, by the way.
As we said before, if you
smile at everyone, and you walk out and you have earned, you know, oceans of sense,
sense of pride and walk away
it's inside your heart,
the sins have been committed by your heart,
to despise your fellow believer, you don't need to do anything.
So, so, fresh. So, first of all, that, that perception is incorrect, it is not just the first that is responsible for our problems, and for our difficulties, it is that combination see rule makes the flesh can becomes in essence the combination of the rule the soul and the flesh, it is enough
it is enough, it is not this is one more responsible than the other, then it is
what is that combination, that
is the combination
it is the heavy component.
So, is the component
component, the earthly component
they come together and then they make your crafts and that laughs That is the one that is described
or the bleeding.
So, it is not the perception in the flesh and responsible crushed that would be fine. It is incorrect. But this is this was
because even for indications even given all these things,
is obvious that the body is responsible. The body is the one who's responsible for the desires, the desire for food, the desire for drink and the desire for sex. All of these are specially designed carnal desires
and they are the desires of the body.
What are those words or some other designs
you know, so, so, these are basically that we call them,
we call them
these are the characteristics or these are the qualities of Catholic desires of Catholic but they're not
worse than the satanic
passage in the heaven the rancor hate or arrogance.
All of these
are good targets these
Some of whom
have capital. These are not problems with the flesh. These are,
these are problems that
the neffs not the fleshy part of themselves, not the desires of the flesh. So that was our reception in the first place that once they have crushed the body, my soul would transcend is not true. Because your soul could be
good even if
you've crushed your body. And now you have
your area, your
wife was at least in the company of the angels, when they were ordered to prostrate, because he
his actions. And he was very
diligent in his words, he was very excellent in his words, but there was some problems I
manifested when he was with the prostrate.
So it is not necessarily true that once you have
your bodily desires, or those special desires here, so we'll be able to sort of fly off and transcend.
So is that is that you?
Don't crush them? Is that is that you don't crush your desires don't
care about me because that is my gift. Last time. I gave it to you smart,
beautiful to take care of it, keep it clean, keep as healthy as why is that food is forbidden? If it is,
you know, exceptional brands, because thanks we'll have the issue of intoxication and food Also, if you don't believe that
is limited to drains.
You know, aside from the issue of intoxication, when is food forbidden
or harmful or harmful was unwholesome filthy or wrong?
Because it is your body is a trust character by the
MC is it is part of your obligation
towards this trust.
So with that emphasis on ritual purification, that emphasis on physical purification, but they mentioned off purification that it shows the mother ation of Islam and shows the balance of this that we don't have monasticism.
We have basically spirituality.
You know, monasticism.
monasticism, what does it do to the to the individual into the society
has devastating effects. A sense very,
very negative messages to the society. It tells the society that in order for you to
be righteous, you have to withdraw from
it can be righteous.
You have to basically walk out of the reality, to be righteous and to be a man of God. Because as long as you are mixed mingling, or you're part of the reality of this world, you're 34, you're your subject.
And you have to really withdraw yourself completely.
And then it takes the purist elements of the society and isolates them, sickness traits them, which is very harmful to society. Those are the people that have been a force for good into society. Those are people that are inclined to righteousness,
and you take them away from the society and you lock them up in monasteries, in the
society. In this case, you're thinking that the purest and best evidence of your society
depriving the reality man from the contributions of
Those people. So in Islam, Islam
is operated just like the monks but inside the reality being conscious of God inside reality, being righteous in sight without needing to walk away from it.
So, the physical purification is a reminder
towards our bodies
but I wanted to quickly go over some just very quickly go over southern because
what we have
mentioned as we talked about
song isn't that true for
clarification whether it is physical purification,
spiritual purification, you do need some
can lead to the greatest profits.
They went to Jordan
went to Jordan,
they used to live in Georgia, their
is one of the wonders of the world.
we're looking for a place to pray. So, they asked for
a clean place for us to pray. And she said, she said
the, if you understand what he said.
So, Sandman is saying that this woman
She said the truth and not only that, she said the truth.
She basically what she said that is
the crux or the core
or good understanding, the illusion that there are many things that you can say about this, but
first of all,
first place, and it may be that the cancer
will take care of this but we also want to take care of
this is not
going to teach us how to be
these are the qualities of great people, great people.
So, to get into this, this, there is no reason
I can only think there was
the woman in
that the importance of spiritual purification. But once again,
unaware of this, they just also want to make sure that there is the physical purification. So the first, my response would have been, yeah.
is they were just like, just like any great people, they were thirsty for wisdom. And he spoke some wisdom, even though even though they are not they were not aware of. But
basically, it's a good refresher
of what they already know. And that's why they accepted it can be considered to be effective.
But it is true.
Because many times we are very sterile externally, and we're completely unaware
predatory qualities in our arts, satanic qualities in our hearts, and we're just walking around
looking, looking good looking, righteous looking,
walking, talking, smiling.
Then when you're when we get tested, truly tested.
people get us
there are really certain tests that will show the qualities of people like
in a divorce, for instance, you see,
these people come up,
particularly after divorce, particularly if people are very vicious, or they have sort of a very rocky marriage ended in divorce
so in these cases, in our
arguments, he comes up
in the weekend in his art in his fields or in his arguments, or in adverse
And that's when that's when the real
qualities of the interior.
some of us
and harmony are profit farms in the
results that are braver than
the ability and submissiveness to
those who are patient. So patience is a very big topic, but we're not talking about
our patients and our
patients basically is to keep your
patients is to hold on to
so has every time in your life you're holding on to
the time of now not your
gratefulness of the time of the law, or
the hardship in adversity at your post this sub sub reddits.
Because surprise part of
the day showcase,
because it is keeping yourself from being deluded away by the surprised by the ease by the whales by the comforts of life like
We were tested by the hearts of
patients, but when we were tested by ease, we did not we were not that patient
within the context of
Sahaba on the province of southern Russia
patients of the saying that we showed this patient
syrup in the face of cerami show up in the face of the rock. So, patience is both suburbs require some patience and then patient with the decrease of
decrease that includes
patients in persevering and patients and keeping away from nasty disobedience of all these forms of patience or just to hold on to your post to keep your post wherever you belong, why not see you anywhere else,
wherever you should be, wherever you should be, now, an ear live.
So, if this is a federal law, and you should, you should be holding on to the cost of suck endures suffering, the sense of enduring suffering, the sense of contentment, a sense of natural resentment towards the
end, you should be here you should all be holding on to this
things are going well for you and everything is going great, don't get distracted by hold on to the post show to be grateful, which means that you will continue to be mindful of Allah He will continue to be at the center of your attention in all your companies and all of your money will not fade to distract you from your worship of the last hour. All of your
wise if you are in a place where you will not distract you from
a lot now
all of your children will not distract you from
at the center of your attention being committed to worship being devoted. So, let us up if you look at
how karma manifested this for instance, look at
his life, how patient he was his commitment
commitment to our commitment to the you know his force. So, what
concerned inside the sprayer concerned
war effort, and he was basically
making war plans inside the sprayer
because the homeowner is distracted in history, but armor was that busy
that obligations overlap
has an individual
to play his obligation as the
the the overlap to such an extent that he have to basically mix them
and think of the word for
shows the vibe of ours does is
absolute manifestation of this patient this commitment this unwavering commitment holding on to his goals. So first of all, he was praying
in touch Okay, so he was praying
he was leaving the prayer
six times and
he just picked up by the staff and with
six times, so armor fell to the ground.
Look at this. So if you were to start six times, it was going to be on your mind.
you're gonna be thinking about your feet and boots, you're gonna be thinking that you're going to be thinking about
lots of things, but
first thing in order is
So, he puts up
first thing from
where we were.
if I can pray the rest of the people
to take care of this myself, because I'm still
so, I need to take care of this myself.
And then there is so much about the story,
story story, just like the life of armor. So, it was a very beautiful touching story.
The death of armor was was not in any way less than his life, it was even greater.
Because it shows all of the greatness
he carried inside. And then he was concerned about himself
with the six steps, and then the
milk and the milk came out,
it was it was fear,
given the size of
people not be able to make it.
But then now
we'll take care of the arrangements on this succession in this condition, but this is particularly powerful, because when you get one man one young man walks in and he had his back his
calls back and he says,
which was also a compassionate way of addressing some of my brother
lift up your Garmin for bias
towards your board
is cleaner for your son.
So, can you imagine
disposition like be concerned about
everything being concerned about your succession being concerned about how people will tell you
about this particular young man whom he does not know, who just walked into the space
before his death, he just be concerned about the well being of this particular house. And
for him, is it nice
is he basically is this like
why would he you know, who would basically
Garner any pleasure from this
pleasure from from awesome people around who
is waiting for us? It is true commitment, that is true devotion and it is true compassion, here the compassion for this young man, that is tough. It is basically holding on to
it keeping your commitments on I was just concerned. So
staffs are not going to distract me Nothing will distract me from this charging my obligations on the mask comes off.
And that is when I will be relieved from my commitments and obligations. So a beautiful
a beautiful, beautiful life.
make us their greatest
for the moment
