Episode Notes

The heart is the most significant organ of the human body, both physically and spiritually. Thus, we need to strive to make sure our hearts are sound, healthy and free of every defect. The Prophet SAW said, “There is a piece of flesh in the body, if healthy, the whole body is healthy, and if corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. Indeed, it is the heart.”

00:00:52--> 00:00:57

Welcome to another episode of our program, heart therapy.

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

In the last several episodes, we were looking at the diseases of the hearts.

00:01:06--> 00:01:12

And we discussed some of the cures for those diseases.

00:01:13--> 00:01:34

And we also discussed the cure for the evil inclined soul, when it controls the heart, what is the cure for that. And we also looked at what the cure is, for shaitan when he comes and whispers into the hearts

00:01:36--> 00:02:02

in this episode, we want to conclude all of that by mentioning the ultimate cure for the heart, that if you were to hold on to this cure, and stick to it, it would suffice you and you would be cured as long as you use it in the right way.

00:02:04--> 00:02:13

And that cure is none other than the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:16--> 00:02:57

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran, that this book is a cure for who for the believers. Yeah yohanna suka como Eva to Mira beacom. Worship Lima is to do well who then wanted to live me. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, all mankind, there has come to you, instruction from your Lord, and a cure a healing for that which is in the chests, the hearts and the souls. And

00:02:58--> 00:03:35

it is a guidance and a mercy for who for the believers. And so here Allah subhanho wa Taala addressed all of mankind, the believers and the disbelievers when he said that occur and has come to you, a book has come to you a healing and a cure has come to you for that which is in the hearts. But then Allah subhanho wa Taala made something specific for the believers, and that is guidance and mercy.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

And Allah subhanho wa Taala also said

00:03:39--> 00:03:56

regarding the Quran being a cure for the hearts, when when a Zulu mean and Cora Annie now Who was she fell on Warhammer to Lille meaning when is he do Valentina Illa herself.

00:03:57--> 00:04:19

And we send down the Quran, we send of the Quran, that which is a cure a healing and a mercy for the believers. But it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss. And so the Quran is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:20--> 00:04:27

it is the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we have until this very day

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

untouched, unchanged, not distorted, not just a word undistorted but not even a single letter distorted or changed. It is preserved by Allah subhanho wa Taala. It has been preserved with a loss of Hannah who attalla and also preserved on the face of this earth. Unlike previous scriptures that became change

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

and destroyed with Allah subhanho wa Taala they are unchanged.

00:05:06--> 00:05:29

All the words of Allah, the scriptures that he sent to mankind, with Allah, they are unchanged, but here on Earth, they became changed and destroyed, etc, except for one book, one scripture, and that is the final Testament, the final guide for mankind, the Torah.

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

And so these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:36--> 00:06:13

And these words are from a loss of Hannah who with data, and so they are uncreated, meaning that they are laws words, and just like a law himself is uncreated. Similarly, his words are uncreated. That is because the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala, are uncreated, because they are from him. subhanho wa Taala. As for every other thing that exists, then it is the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:15--> 00:07:08

And so because these words are uncreated, they are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that means they are special. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala put cure in these words. That's why he puts guidance in these words. That's why he put mercy in these words, of his. And so the Quran is the ultimate cure for all illnesses, for all diseases, for all sicknesses, whether they be physical, or whether they be spiritual. Regardless of what kind of illness it is. Those who believe in the power of these words, when they recite these words of Allah subhana wa Tada, seeking his cure, they are healed and cured by Allah's permission.

00:07:11--> 00:07:38

And just like, every single disease has a cure, the cure for the hearts, the diseases of the hearts, is in the Quran. And so, it is a cure for all kinds of diseases, whether those diseases are related to shoe bluehat doubts and uncertainties, or whether they are related to shahadat, lustful desires.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

And so, whenever a person

00:07:44--> 00:08:50

is cured of these two things of shewhart and Shahada, his illness disappears. And thus, he is able to put forward what Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes over what his soul desires and wishes and he's able to please Allah subhana wa tada to put forward what Allah is pleased with. And he is able to make what Allah is pleased with, more beloved to him, than what his own soul is satisfied with, and is pleased with a loss of Hanna with Allah and His messenger is more beloved to him, than everything else, on the face of this earth, more beloved to him, then, his family, then his children, then his mother than his father, and more beloved to him, even

00:08:52--> 00:09:04

even more beloved to him, then his own knifes his own self, as we find in the famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

Moreover, when this heart is cured, of its ailments,

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

all the other body parts, the organs, they follow suit,

00:09:21--> 00:09:53

and that is because they only become stable and sound, when the heart is stable, and sell. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in the authentic hadith reported by both Bukhari and Muslim, that there is a piece of flesh in the body, that if it was to be healthy, and sound, then the entire body would be healthy and sound and stable. But if it was to become corrupt,

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

and diseased, then the whole body would become corrupt.

00:10:00--> 00:10:27

diseases. And then he said, Indeed, it is the heart. Indeed, it is the heart. And so once you have cured the diseases of your heart, all your other affairs would be cured. And so someone who finds it difficult to control a certain part of his body,

00:10:28--> 00:10:47

he finds it difficult to control it from the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is because his heart is not under control. And so for example, if he cannot control his eyes, from looking at what Allah has forbidden,

00:10:48--> 00:11:22

if he cannot control that, then it is because his heart is not under his own control. But once his heart is under his control, and he has purified his heart, and cleanse it, and he has cleansed it, of all diseases, then without a doubt, lowering his gaze from looking at what is wrong, will be extremely easy for him. Similarly, someone who has no control over his tongue,

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

it is because he doesn't have control over his heart.

00:11:28--> 00:12:03

But once he has purified his heart, and cured his heart, it becomes extremely easy for him to control his tongue and not allow it to fall into the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so this is how we understand this Hadith, that if the heart was to be healthy, the rest of the body parts would be healthy. And if the heart was to be diseased and corrupt, then surely the rest of the body parts would be corrupt and diseased.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

Now, as we mentioned earlier, through this Qur'an,

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

the believers achieve two things, they achieve guidance and they achieve mercy.

00:12:20--> 00:12:32

We will expound on these two things. After a few moments, as we will now take a short break and we will be right back.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:13:07--> 00:13:42

welcome back to this episode of heart therapy. Before we went on our break, we had mentioned that through the Quran, the believers they achieve two things as Allah subhanho wa Taala told us they achieve guidance and they achieve mercy. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you Hannah suka como Eva to milk rubycon where she thought Lima Suri wha hoo, then warahmatu lil mein,

00:13:44--> 00:14:14

Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses mankind, all mankind, there has come to you instruction from your Lord, and a cure a healing for that which is in the breasts, that which is in the chests, the hearts and guidance and mercy for the believers. And so this is exclusively for the believers. Two things guidance and mercy, guidance,

00:14:15--> 00:14:24

by being guided to the truth, having knowledge of the truth, and acting according to it, and mercy.

00:14:26--> 00:14:43

And so what a person achieves of good in this world and reward whether it be in this life or the next, all of that is through the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala he has been guided to

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

and when a person achieves these two things, he achieves all happiness and bliss, which is why Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to be happy at that.

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

point.

00:15:02--> 00:15:56

And so, when a person achieves these two things, guidance and mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala, through the Quran, he is achieved all happiness and all success. And as a result, a loss of Hannah who Allah wants us to be happy over that. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala after mentioning this verse, right after he says, could be Family Law, he will be rahmati he, Furby Valley, California, for who? Who Hiram midnight tomorrow. He subhanho wa Taala said, say, oh Mohammed, in the bounty of Allah, and in His mercy in that, let them rejoice, let the believers rejoice. Because it is better than what all the people accumulate what they gather together of the dunya and so no matter how much

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

they gather and accumulate of this dunya,

00:15:59--> 00:16:18

of wealth of possessions, of enjoyments It is nothing compared to what the believer achieves when he is guided by Allah subhanho wa Taala and attains the mercy of Allah through the Quran.

00:16:19--> 00:17:01

And so, the Quran consists of mercy and a cure. But this is not for everyone. Rather, it is exclusively for the believers who believe in these verses, that they are reciting. As for the disbelievers, then because they do not believe in the contents of this Quran. And they don't act accordingly. It only takes them further into loss and into destruction. And that's why Allah subhanahu wa tada said after mentioning that the Quran is a cure

00:17:03--> 00:17:12

he mentioned regarding the disbelievers. And so Allah said, one, zero means Karani. Now who she thought when warahmatu meaning

00:17:13--> 00:17:23

that we sent down of the Quran that which is a cure and a mercy for the believers. And then Allah says, Well Is he do Vani Nina Illa ha Sarah,

00:17:24--> 00:17:57

but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss. And that is because the Quran has come and has been a witness against them. And so on the Day of Judgment, the Quran will come and be a proof against the disbelievers. And so one on one book for one camp, it is a mercy and it is a guidance and it is a cure for the other camp. It is a punishment. It is destruction and loss.

00:17:59--> 00:18:11

Now, we mentioned in this episode, that the ultimate cure for the sicknesses of the heart, for the diseases of the heart is this.

00:18:13--> 00:18:25

But how is it that it is a cure for the sicknesses especially the two diseases, the diseases of shubo hat and shadow?

00:18:27--> 00:19:06

The way we can look at it is that true hats being the doubts, the uncertainties that shaitan whispers into our hearts regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala regarding the religion of Allah subhana wa Tada. Basically, the Quran consists of evidences, and proofs, and logical arguments, many throughout the Quran. No matter which chapter of the Quran you open, you find these evidences, these proofs, all of them making clear truth from falsehood,

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

showing the truth as it is, and making falsehood clear as it is.

00:19:14--> 00:19:41

And so, all diseases related to Shu heart eventually disappear for the one who is reading this Quran and he is trying to understand its meanings. And so such diseases, what do they do? They corrupt the right perception of the truth, thus making a person to see the truth as it is.

00:19:43--> 00:19:55

And so the Quran, it consists of many different things that Allah has affirmed, such as his oneness, his tauheed, such as

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

his attributes, his sifat

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

Such as knowledge of the unseen, of the unseen world, and the resurrection, life after death, as well as Prophethood

00:20:15--> 00:20:39

what the prophets came with how it was a truth from Allah. All of these, Allah has affirmed in the Quran, with evidences with logical and sound arguments, making clear the truth from the false word. And so all of that cures the disease of ignorance.

00:20:40--> 00:20:53

As for the Shahada, then we say that the Quran consists of pieces of advice, of pieces of wisdom,

00:20:54--> 00:21:52

gems, and worlds, and admonitions, reminders, through that which Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentions those things which will encourage us to do good deeds. And he also mentioned those things which would discourage us from doing that deeds. All of this is mentioned in the Qur'an. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to the Quran in many different places as a vicar, or a decra, which means a reminder. And so it is a reminder, it is an admonition that constantly reminds us of a loss of Hannah who were tired, and reminds us to obey a law and stay away from his disobedience.

00:21:53--> 00:22:24

And so, the sound heart, the healthy heart, when it sees these verses, when it recites these verses, and tries to understand their meanings, and ponders over them reflects over them. It craves, doing, what will benefit it in this life and the next and it will stay away from everything that will harm it. Thus making

00:22:25--> 00:23:11

the heart to love, guidance, and to hate misguidance causing it to return to the fitrah that Allah subhanho wa Taala created upon just like the ill body, the sick body, how it recovers to full health after its sickness. And so this is how the Quran cures us from both kinds of diseases. The diseases of shabu had the doubts and uncertainties and the diseases of shahadat the base desires of man, the lustful desires of human beings.

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

And this is also why the halifa Earth man, even our founder of the Allahu Allah,

00:23:20--> 00:23:31

He is reported as having said that if our hearts were pure, they would never become tired from the Lord.

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

And this is why

00:23:34--> 00:24:36

the halifa was man, even our firm are holding a long lag. He said that if our hearts were pure, they would never become tired from the words of our Lord. And what he said is true. Many people you find them they have become tired from either listening to the Quran, or reciting the Quran. And that is only a sign of the disease in their hearts. And so, if our hearts were pure and sound, they would never become tired. from listening to the words of Allah subhana wa Tada. And you notice that this is a special power with regards to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the believer who has lightened his heart, he never becomes tired of listening to the Quran, or reciting the Quran. No

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

matter how many times he hears it being recited, no matter how many times he recites it himself. He never becomes tired. He always wants to listen to it again and again, or recite it over and over again. As for the words of human beings, whether it be

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

A poem, whether it be a song, people eventually become tired of it, they become sick of it, for having listened to it over and over again, even if initially, they had an attachment to those words. And so this is the power of the Quran. Finally,

00:25:26--> 00:25:30

we have to understand that this heart of ours

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

is a vessel

00:25:34--> 00:26:00

that it was created by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To be filled, it was created to be filled with something. So if you do not hurry to fill it with good with, for example, the words of Allah with his remembrance, then shaped on will hurry to fill it with evil.

00:26:02--> 00:26:51

And so with that, we come to the end of this episode. And so I asked Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to return to the Quran and use it as a cure for our diseased hearts. And I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to make us to have benefited from everything that we have learned and to allow us to practice and implemented. With that. We end this episode with our final conclusion subhanak along Moby Dick, Ash headwear La Ilaha Illa and Estelle fuuka who are to Lake wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wa been doing?

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

All my life I

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

have always held me.

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

away.

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

Make

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

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

Don't leave me

00:27:30--> 00:27:31
