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.”

All my life I

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

have always held me

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

away

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala at Emmanuel aquilani Allah, Allah He urged marine wildlife while early he was so happy woman, South Island and Gigi de la Yomi Diem, my bad Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wa barakato. Welcome to another episode of heart therapy.

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

In the last episode, we started to discuss the various actions of the heart.

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

And so the actions of the heart

00:01:05--> 00:01:39

are required from every single believer. And so we have actions of the body, such as praying, fasting, spending in the way of a lot doing various good deeds, but then there are actions related to the heart, that we are also required to perform. And so in the previous episode, we had a look at one of those actions, which is perhaps the most important of all of the actions of the heart, and that is a class or sincerity of intention.

00:01:40--> 00:02:13

In this episode, we want to move on to another action of the heart, which is also great, which is of also great significance and importance. And that is what is known as eliakim. Or, or certainty. And that is what is known as eliakim, or certainty. And so earlier clean, is basically complete knowledge that doesn't have even the slightest of doubt. And that causes one to perform action.

00:02:14--> 00:02:23

And so you're clean basically means that your heart believes in something just like your eye sees it.

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

And so there remains absolutely no room for any doubt to begin with.

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

And there are various levels of your cleaning. The first level is that you have certainty

00:02:40--> 00:02:54

only based on what Allah has told us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the Quran that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought for us. And so you believe in it, simply because Allah said,

00:02:55--> 00:03:07

the second level of eliakim is that you have certainty through the evidences that Allah has mentioned in the Quran.

00:03:08--> 00:03:46

And so these are the two main levels of eliakim. Obviously, the first level is a higher level that you simply believe, because Allah subhanho wa Taala said it without even asking for their evidence. But if you need evidence, then Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us plenty of evidence in the Quran. And when we look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his life, we know that he was indeed a true prophet who was not a liar in what he brought from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:47--> 00:04:22

And so you're clean is basically the highest level of a man and it is the description of the people of San as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, who done warahmatullah Lille Marcin in that it is a guidance and a mercy for the doers of good Allah Dena ukri Muna salata, where you tune as a character were humble at home whom you can own those who established a lot and give nzqa and they are certain they have your clean

00:04:24--> 00:04:36

in the Hereafter, meaning they believe in the accuracy with certainty with conviction, a belief that has no doubt in it whatsoever.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

And so through eliakim a person's tauheed and emang is complete. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding the believers in lunella Dena M and will be law he wore a su D, two millimeter taboo. Those are the believers who are they they are only those who have

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

believed in Allah and His messenger. And then after that, they do not have a shadow of doubt.

00:05:07--> 00:06:01

And so the opposite of your claim is doubt. And so you should not have even a very slight amount of doubt in your hearts. If you do, then you do not have your cleaning, you have not attained Earl, your cleaning, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded him to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala until he would attain eliakim as Allah said, why would Rebecca had to kill your team, and worship your lord, oh, Mohammed, until you attain your clean certainty. What is your clean here in this verse, it is referring to death. So worship a lot, and do not stop until you have reached death. Why has death been referred to as a Yaqui in here, because death is a

00:06:01--> 00:06:57

certainty that death is something that no one has any doubt about. And what comes after death is the certainty the certainty that you believed in, in your life, without a shadow of doubt. And so what comes after death is part of the world of the unseen, that we have been required to believe in the world of the unseen, what comes after death, and what will happen on the Day of Judgment, the existence of Hellfire, the existence of Paradise, the existence of angels, in fact, the very existence of a loss of Hannah what data all of this comes under the knowledge of the unseen, that we are required to not only believe in, but to have certainty in and so, a person who does not have

00:06:57--> 00:07:10

certainty in the world of the unseen, then his tawheed is not complete, rather having doubt in your belief, this is another fire of heat.

00:07:12--> 00:07:54

And so, there are many characteristics of the people of eliakim. Among their characteristics, is that the calamities of life are made easy for them to bear with. And so one of the dryers that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made, in which he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for various things. Among the things that he asked for. He said wamena li NEMA to Halloween will be he la luna masala Eva dounia, the Ola asking for such certainty such you're clean, that the calamities of this world will be made easy for us by you.

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

And so, being able to bear with calamities

00:08:02--> 00:08:41

is proportionate to the level of your cleaning in your heart. And so, the most patient of people are those with the highest level of your clean. Why? Because they know that this calamity, it was written for them. And so they have belief in the destiny of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Kabbalah and the color of Allah, they have belief in it with certainty and they know that whatever Allah subhana wa tada has written for them in it is good, even if they do not see it.

00:08:42--> 00:09:20

Among the characteristics of the people of your clean uncertainty, is that a tawakkol or reliance upon Allah subhanho wa Taala is strong in their hearts and they feel a lot of presence with them. And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us in the Quran, that when his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was stuck in the cave, or rather, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was in the cave,

00:09:21--> 00:09:25

making hedra with his companion, Abu Bakr radi Allahu Han.

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

And the enemies were at their footsteps. He told his companion as Allah says, Ed Hochuli sahibi. He Latta has an in Allaha manner. Do not grieve for Verily, Allah is with us. This shows his yaqeen in his heart, surely allies with us Don't worry, because although we are to in this cave, the third with us is Allah Subhana who went ahead and also we have the followers of mu sallys.

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

Salaam when they were fleeing from their enemy, Fela Mathura el djem hyoni call of harbor Moosa in lamudi, raccoon, the people of Musa, the followers of Musa when they were in front of the enemy,

00:10:19--> 00:10:52

they said, Indeed they have. That's it, it's the end, they're going to take us over. And so Musashi said I'm What did he say call akella. In Europe be say, Dean, don't worry, indeed, my Lord is with me. He is with us. And He will guide us. Why did he say this? Because he was sure that Allah was with them, he would aid them, and he would support them, and he would grant them victory. We'll take a quick break here and be back after a few moments.

00:11:21--> 00:11:38

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. welcome back to this episode of heart therapy. Before the break, we were mentioning some of the characteristics of the people of Ukraine, the people who have certainty in their hearts.

00:11:39--> 00:12:28

And so we continue and say that among the characteristics of the people of Ukraine is that they spend for Allah sake, they spend of their wealth for Allah sake, more than anyone else, because they know that Allah is the one who provides so they do not fear that if they spend in the way of Allah, that, you know, that's it, they're going to lose all their money. They're gonna be out on the streets begging people for money, no, they know with certainty that whatever they give to Allah subhana wa tada for the sake of Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala will return it to them in double. And so they know that Allah is the only one who provides not anyone else. And so Allah says, In this

00:12:28--> 00:13:13

regard, we'll fill out of the area to lil whooping him and on the earth are Signs for the people who have yaqeen. And then he says, Wolfie and fusi come of Allah to bassoon, and also within you there are signs, Will you not then see? And then what does the law say? What is that it is one or two I do. And in the heavens is your provision, your sustenance, and whatever you are promised. And so these people know, that provision or risk comes from Allah alone. And so they do not fear giving, in the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

There are many characteristics of the people of your clean, but we will suffice with these that we have mentioned.

00:13:23--> 00:13:50

After that, we move on to some of the fruits that are attained, that are achieved through having your clean in our hearts. And so among the fruits of eliakim is that the one who has your key in his heart, and he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala with certainty, he does not feel lonely, if

00:13:51--> 00:14:05

he proceeds by himself. And so, if everyone abandons him, and he is on his own on the street part of a lot, it doesn't bother him. He doesn't feel lonely.

00:14:06--> 00:14:27

And he does not become deceived by large numbers, unlike people who have week in enough in their hearts, and so there are they are diluted by large numbers. And so they follow the crowd wherever they go, even if the majority of the people are upon falsehood.

00:14:28--> 00:14:36

Among the fruits of your clean is that the prolonging of the path of fitna.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

Among the fruits of eliakim is the prolonging of the path that it becomes a fitna except for the people of eliakim. And so most of those who turn back from the truth, if they were religious, and then

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

They stopped practicing

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

it is because they find the path too long.

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

And so they become weakened, they become tired. And so they fall, they fall off.

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

And so they don't, that you know this path, it is safe because it's taking so long for me to reach the goal. And that is because the European in their hearts is weak, they do not believe with certainty of the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas those who have Fermi Akeem in their hearts,

00:15:40--> 00:15:55

they believe with certainty of the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala for his obedient slaves, and especially in these times when the enemies of Islam have come. And

00:15:57--> 00:16:33

and especially in these times, when the enemies of Islam have the upper hand over many Muslim countries. And so wherever you go, Muslims are being slaughtered, and their land is being occupied. And so you say, Where is the promise of Allah, He has promised us victory, he has promised us victory. Where is that victory? The people of Ukraine, they still believe in that victory of Allah with certainty. Without any shadow of doubt, that victory is coming. And it is near

00:16:34--> 00:17:19

among the fruits of eliakim is that it helps with an huzhou concentration and humbleness in a Salah. And so prayer is heavy for those who do not have who sure in their prayers, and who sure is heavy for those who are weak in eliakim as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We're in luck, Abiraterone. Illa. Allah Harsha in and it meaning Salah is extremely heavy and difficult, except for those who have who sure in it. And then he says alladhina eluna and Nomura corabi him those

00:17:20--> 00:18:04

who are certain, they know with certainty that they will meet their Lord, among the fruits of eliakim. Is that a person he loves? the worship of Allah Subhana who went ahead. And so a sign of one's certainty in Allah, once you're clean in Allah is that he loves to be in seclusion with Allah, and secretly conversing with Allah subhanho wa Taala, praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala in solitude, all by himself alone, in a manner as if he is seeing a loss of Hannah who died.

00:18:05--> 00:18:23

And this is the highest level of sand as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is to worship Allah, as if you can see him. And although you cannot see him, then you should know that he is seeing you and watching you.

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

Among the fruits of your

00:18:28--> 00:18:53

among the fruits of eliakim is that it develops humbleness. And so the more a person's a man in the hereafter increases, the more his humbleness also increases, and none becomes arrogant, except he who's yaqeen in his heart is weak. As Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:18:54--> 00:19:53

regarding Musa alayhis Salam wirkkala moves in news to be Robbie what have become mean Cooley Mata Kabir in Lao mineral, po mill, his Abu Musab al Salam said, praying to Allah, indeed, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord when he was speaking to fit our indeed I seek refuge in my Lord, and your Lord from every arrogant one who does not believe in the day of reckoning among the fruits of eliakim is that it helps one to prepare for the zero. And so in proportion to one's yaqeen. In meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala is his preparation for it. And so Allah Subhana who would Allah, he took an oath by the Day of Judgment, so that no one would have any doubt about it. And so whenever

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

you find in the Quran, that Allah subhanho wa Taala swears by something it is to prove

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

That That thing is real and it is to prove

00:20:04--> 00:20:24

that what Allah subhanho wa Taala is about to say that it is something great. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says swearing and taking an oath by the resurrection Birla warabi latuda Hassan Bella what a B letter.

00:20:26--> 00:20:39

Bella warabi la to la sala as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yes, by my Lord, surely you will be resurrected. And Allah Subhana who Allah says Bella hora de

00:20:41--> 00:20:46

and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Bella, our B letter T and

00:20:47--> 00:21:48

this is referring to the Day of Judgment, Allah says yes, by my Lord, it will surely come to you. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, He won't be in Who the heck Allah says commanding His Messenger say, yes by my Lord. Indeed, it is the truth meaning, the Day of Judgment among the fruits of eliakim is that not only does eliakim help to bear with calamities, but it also makes one to favor calamities. That is because Allah subhanho wa Taala wants good for the believer, even if he may test him. And so he hides the good endings, a lot hides the good endings from us, in order to test our theme. And so if the believer was to see what is hidden for him, of the treasures of Allah is

00:21:48--> 00:21:59

kindness, then he would prefer tribulation, as he savers and prefers well being.

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

And so these are some of the fruits of eliakim certainty in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The question now is, how is eliakim achieved? There are many ways but I'll mention just two.

00:22:17--> 00:23:15

The first way is by gaining beneficial knowledge, by researching and looking into the evidences. And so a person whose yaqeen is weak, his certainty either in the existence of a law or the truth of this Deen that Allah has sent us maybe a person, his Yaqui is weak in that regard. So how should he strengthen his yaqeen by looking into the many evidences that prove that the existence of a lot is true, and that this religion is the truth from Allah subhana wa Tada. And also, among the ways that we can achieve a clean is by doing as many good deeds as we can. And so the failure of the body parts from performing deeds is an evidence of the failure of the heart from having

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

to clean

00:23:18--> 00:23:47

and so I asked Allah Subhana who Allah to grant us all this certainty, this conviction, this up in our hearts. With that we come to the end of this episode, until our next episode of heart therapy. I leave you with this Subhana Colombo Be humble Hamed ik Illa Illa Illa and bestill fuuka water to buoy lake was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
