we go back to him. So
he said, to call Becca in the flf.
Seek out your hearts in three occasions.
If your heart doesn't respond to you,
then whether your heart is sick, or it is dead,
and you are to ask Allah subhana wa Taala for another heart And again, I'm talking about the spiritual heart.
So there are three occasions where the heart is really tested,
whether this heart is sick, or whether it is sound, or whether it is completely dead, because these are the three hearts they tell you that there are three types of the three types of hearts whether it is a living heart, at the heart, a sick heart.
At the heart the local bull calf is

Indeed those who chose pay attention to this because a lot of the brothers they use color here they tell you they've shifted from la salle de la hearts how they are so what is the justice of Atlanta? They chose to this belief.
So the Ayat of Allah were presented to them
and willingly with their own free choice. They said we're not going to believe in it. And as a result of this, Allah sealed their hearts so had a pile of money. And this is what the minister said. We'll call Oh coluna they said Our hearts are what wolf wrapped up.

So he receives both you're sitting right like this in the machine. You're nourishing your heart what he man you get out of the machine after a shot you go to the wrong place, you'll notice your hard work. And that hard that goes work up and down, up and down.
Up and down. And this is the heart that has to be treated we go back to author of numerous wrote
said open loop callback in this lf there are three occasions that help you diagnose your heart, whether it is dead, whether it is sick, or whether it is a living heart alive, number one and SMS Al Quran.
When you hear the Quran
Are you at least reflecting upon some of what is being recited? Are you interested or the Quran just noise out there like any other noise.
Matter of no affair above the law one has that famous statement he said will lie
By Allah lol la hora kulu buena, Masha de acmin Kalani Robin,
if the heart is clean, it will have enough it will not have enough from the book of Allah. You always want to hear the Quran read the Quran. So, the first test here is the Quran
Sunnah Al Quran does it get, you know, in the feed ellika indeed in the Quran in the feed Eric Allah dechra a reminder leemon Karan Allah who called
for the one who has a loving heart
for you the second occasion, we're in the thick
and when you make this
so hard for you to realize what does it mean to seek heart? You know, sometimes when you make Vic, let's say Subhan Allah 100 times 100 100 times and you keep doing it. You could stop with your tongue and your heart would be what?
That's where is that connection with the heart so you could stop actually not saying what your heart is saying it?
is a living halls and the Vic Subhana Allah is it just lip service? Or what Alhamdulillah is it lip service, or you reflect upon the meanings of these? And number three, we're in del halwa and went by yourself when you are by yourself. We were told of this man who will be shaded under the throne and the Day of Judgment. That was one of the seven people were Roger Lune that Corolla hollien atharva Dinah? Someone Subhan Allah who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala when he was alone, and he started shedding tears for Heather are indications which any type of heart Do you have in closing before we take your questions?
If the aim says

Allah Subhana Allah anuga alumina. Now, how do you wash the thoughts?
A scholar was asked this question in that context.
the questioner said to him which has been
pyrrha oturu poron
Emily still solve
that you recite the Quran or meek is the fall.
Remember the question in the context of washing the heart,
cleaning the hearts
because both of these are the best forms of God that you know color mala, the remembrance of Allah using the Quran or using a stepfather. Those are two forms one of the two of the highest ranking forms of victory that a Muslim can be engaged in. But the scholar was asked in reference to the washing of the heart. You know what he said? A fellow woman would testify.
A lie he
was a woman who Elan mean Elon Musk.
Elon may mean who Elon Musk.
A dirty garment needs water more than Musk,
younger self what he's trying to say.
You see the Quran is that clear?
The Quran is the mosque.
But for that Quran to beautify the heart, the heart must be well cleanse cleaned. And the only way to do this is through is the fall through tober.
So you're having a week right now.
To do is the fall to do tober
when NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a promise that only if you live until the next Ramadan, Allah will forgive your sins.
But he mentioned a Kareena or a restriction. What restriction if you avoid major sins? Now we know that for you to come out of a major sin, you must make Toba.
Now, what is a major sin and a minor sin?
To say the least some of the scholars did not see any difference between the two.
But if you examine the Quran and Sunnah, we find the difference. Two major sins and minor sins
in Taiji tenable Kava, Iran Martin honan, who? Lucas Sarang coochie coo. If you avoid the major sins will expeed the minor for you. And Medina gitana una cabeza, Iran it's me once our Asia 11
there is a referencing to major sins 11 is the major the minor sins.
Now, what are these major sins?
And what should I do about cleaning the heart from them?
Because regarding the minor, if you live until Ramadan, Allah subhanaw taala will take care of that. So the major sins you have to do what you have to ask Allah for forgiveness, you have to make Toba you have to go through the process of Toba.
imagine to be able abdus Rahim Allah mentioned certain criterias that identify the major sins. He said for example, a sin that has a had in the dunya
The heart is a criminal punishment Like what? adultery stealing, drinking. Hmm, what else killing.
There is a heart for it.
That's a major sin or a sin that Rasul salovaara Sallam identified to be a major sin
is attainable savall will be hard for example, avoid the seven destructive sins Rasul Allah named them
or the punishment for that sin in the Hereafter is hellfire.
In alladhina, coluna unworldly aterna
in knanaya, coluna theorbo Cooney him,
was shy of slowness era devouring the wolf of the orphans. So the punishment for it is hellfire.
If a person commits it, he earns the wrath, the enduro of Allah
or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
using the term les seminar, he is not one of us.
Les semonin that there are certain criterias but quite frankly, I love
what are the live bass mentioned regarding this subject.
You know what he said. And that's why I didn't really go over because
the criteria is in more details in order to live now best said
lacob era master fall. Well our sahira ma is wrong.
memorize this slide, lead kaviraj master.
There is no such a thing called the major sin when you commit it. When you commit that sin, you're either way too far you can say stop for a lie.
You done. Now here it is. What are sorry ra ma SRR. And there is nothing called minor when you insist on it.
So when you insist in something and you call it, man, this is nothing This is a minor. It becomes what
majors because of what
do in our silver in them be wacky number 11, even asides. Don't look at how little your sin is. But look at the greatness of the one that you're obeying Allah subhanaw taala only in a
Ruby Yakumo Maha karate boo, dare you belittle your sins don't do that.
Now, what should you do about these sins, you have to make the work.
There are certain conditions that must be in that act of Toba. Number one sincerity.
Number two regret fullness
that you regret doing it.
And by the way, this is the major, the major pillar of the rubber
toe battle album.
Because without it, you're not going to have the album
that you actually regret the fact that you've fallen into that sin.
you abandon committing that sin. That is number three.
For you vow not to come back to it.
Here is the key.
If that sin engages the right of another human being you have to settle that
if you wronged someone
you cheated someone out of the wolf.
You have to settle that with the person
didn't have a bad day it will lead to I don't know cuca illa Allah rights must be given back. You see, when you receive Allah subhana wa tada and it's between you and Alon, you turn back to Allah, Allah will forgive you, but I cannot cheat you out of your money and then go Oh ALLAH forgive me know the act of Toba must engage you getting back right back to that person.
and of course this act of Toba has to be performed on time before the soul departs from the body for years who are engaged next week or so inshallah, in cooling yourself to account he had a whole year from last Ramadan, see what went wrong. Listen, no one is perfect.
And I warn myself and you against finding excuses for yourselves, or justifying your sins. Because this was the attitude of Satan.
When we study the story of Adam, and Satan, as we find out that Adam and Satan, both of them disobeyed Allah Subhana Allah,
Adam, ate from the tree.
Satan refused to bow down.
But why Satan was cursed.
And his faith is identified eternal Hill. Meanwhile, Adam and his offspring me and you were given a second chance because of that.
When Satan was asked, Why didn't you bow down to Adam? What did he say? He found an excuse. He said, I'm better than him. I shouldn't be bound down
Many Muslims do this these days by the way, unknowingly.
Brother, it's America busy.
Why these sisters
so they find execuse. You see, if you have that attitude,
you will never be able to come out of that sin by
you know, Toba and remoting and so forth.
Stay away from finding excuses. In sha Allah. Allah
