he Mohammedan saw the Kala mean alma mater Lila mean, Allah Allah He have been upon us Javi Alvarez Maya mean, Amanda from the sun in Isla Yami de la mokuba. me No. I mean
we praise Allah subhanaw taala as is befitting His Divine Grace and majesty.
And no praise that we offer a loss of Allah tala is sufficient.
Because the last 100 Allah is perfect in all of his names, attributes, actions, and in his that in his essence, and we send praise and blessings on his beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his noble family and his companions
and all those who follow him in the best way till the Day of Judgment, may Allah subhanaw taala make us among them.
Allah subhanaw taala reminds us through the hottie herbs every Friday, most of us hear this over and over again.
Yeah, you live in LA haka. toccata. He will tune in to Muslim moon.
Last month, Allah tells us that all you who have attained to faith
have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. Be aware of Allah subhanaw taala be conscious of Allah subhanaw taala be in reverence or in fear of Allah subhanaw taala.
And then he says and die not accept in a state of Islam.
Do not leave this world except in full submission to a loss of power.
And we hear this through the fatigues every Friday.
My question is, what arrangements have we made to ensure that that's what our end is going to be?
Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that as you live,
you will die.
In what state you live, how you spend your life, even statistically, the probability his death will come in what you spend most of your time doing. And as you die, in that state, you will be resurrected.
So if your whole life that is what our Dean is that 24 hours of our life is in submission to Allah subhanaw taala with consciousness of him in the Gulf of Las panatela, then we can hope reasonably from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, that in the last moments, when you will forget everyone
in the pangs in the sakurako mouth, everything else fades. what comes out is what's in the cup, what's in the heart. You see, when you squeeze a sponge, what comes out only that which is inside.
And the most difficult moments are the moments of death, as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us. So what we are inside truly that is going to come out. From that moment on only the truth comes out not what our appearances are outside, no matter how righteous we appear, what we are, what is the state of our pollute of our hearts, that's what's going to come out.
And Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam teaches us that when you die with your last breath, in the column Allah Allah Allah, Allah of Shahada should be on your lips. Now, every day we spend 99.9% of our times without that on our lips, how do you expect that in the most difficult moment that's going to come out?
Okay, so there is a preparation that is required.
You know, these are not idle reminders. Our Deen requires action. We have to prepare because we know we have a meeting coming up with a loss
and a loss. Voila looks forward to the meeting with some people.
Last month Allah does not want to meet some people
and only those who look forward to meeting Allah subhanaw taala, who he looks forward to meeting and those are people who have fulfilled the rights of this Deen, who have lived their lives and struggled and we are human beings and we are weak. And we have all kinds of tests, but we lead our lives in a way, striving and struggling with sincerity with the floss to please the last rantala to gain his quarter. Because the last one not Allah tells us that on the Day of Judgment, Lion fowl Madhubala well known that your wealth and your children that's what we spend most of our times you and me, we that's what we are doing most of the time for most of us Scylla Mashallah. That they will
not benefit you till Amen.
saline except what will benefit the one who comes to Allah with the current that is saline
in a complete state of emptiness from all attachments, all valamar talakad except with last pinata, a heart that has been emptied of all other attachments and has only a last
sheet that is the reality in the helping of tawheed
See, also la sala lives Sallam teaches us that homes and houses in which there are figures sewer, idols and statues and in which there are dogs, the angels of Rama do not enter that house.
How do you expect Allah subhanaw taala to enter a house my column in which there are all kinds of figures
of things I worship mostly wealth and my attachments to his created beings whether it's my wife, whether it's my children, whether it's my friends that I I ignore last month Allah's commands and give preference to his creation. So Calvin Salim is one that has been freed from all attachments. And this is true liberation. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to be his ABD and Allah subhanaw taala honored the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam by calling him He is the ABD
in the dunya when you are an app, the slave You are the lowest
in the sight of Allah when you are his, you are the highest. So when he took him in his miraculous journey, the Mirage last month Allah calls him his ABD
and Allah Subhana Allah wants from us this are Buddha which cannot be fulfilled until the reality of the feed that comes in our hearts. But all of his creation needs to be removed our attachments that there is no competition. Allah subhanaw taala hates shirk. But how can my servant have something in his heart that competes with me?
All of Now this does not mean that you do not be attached to your parents or to your children, for everything that is halal, but it has to be conditional to your attachment to Allah subhanaw taala I love my father and mother. Why? Because this is what my Lord loves. And he has sent I ads in the Quran of how I should treat my parents. Everything should be conditional to my throw shade, the internalization of Eden my heart.
So how do we rectify this heart and bring it to a condition that would qualify as Alban selling. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us in a hadith that all of you know that everything that we do has consequences. And he gives an example, that every time you do an act of disobedience, so sinfulness it leaves a mark on your heart, a black.on your heart, and if you do not do
those, and you keep doing those acts, your heart turns black. Now literally, it doesn't mean it turns black, you open your heart, it's not going to look black, but in the spiritual realm, what does it mean Allah Subhana Allah calls it.
Allah palooka him that their sinfulness has put a barrier that is dark and impenetrable to light. What light, the knower of Allah tala neurofeedback, that they see all the signs of Allah subhanaw taala and they do not see it. That's why we have two terms bizarre, which is the sight of our eyes.
And the Sierra, which is the internal site of our hearts. Okay, that is what is required. Now what does that mean that we see when no matter what happens to us, whatever happens in the world, whether it's an earthquake, whether it's a riot, you know, whether it's a tyrant, whether it's anything good or bad, with our internal eye, we see it for what it truly is. Okay? If we don't have that basura, we only can see as far as our physical eyes, oh, it happened because of this.
The jobs did this and was
whatever his name is did this in Gujarat, you know, so and so did this in in Syria, we don't see beyond that. But when you have the basura, then you see everything as it is. So any mercy bar comes on you, you see why it is coming and you look beyond that, any Namah of Allah subhanaw taala any blessing comes your way. You see where it is coming from you don't attribute it to your own wisdom are my skills are my education and my good business decision. So it's very important for us to have a clear vision of our hearts. And that vision gets cloudy depending on our actions, what we expose our senses to see Allah subhanaw taala sends all of us in this world, in a state of natural goodness
And then what we are exposed to through our parents through our environment, through our work through our friends that we choose, it changes that. So how do we get that back? How do we Polish those hearts? But we can see truth as truth and falsehood as false it Okay, otherwise we keep running after the wrong thing.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam teaches us that everything has a Polish everything has a cleansing agent, and the cleansing agent of the heart is dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala.
So it's very, very important for us to remember that
what comprises Vicar,
Allah subhanaw taala has called the Juma hotaka as a Vic Allah Swan tala cgiar Latina either new de la sala
Minami June 1 fossa illa decorilla. When are you believe when the other end of Juma is called then
proceed or rush towards the vicar of Allah which is Allah subhanaw taala calls
Hajj as Vicar,
Vicar Yama, moto de la smarthalo call Salah, Vicar, Allah subhanaw taala has called the Quran itself as a vicar of hacking. Okay. All of these are of car or liquor, and especially talking about Allah subhanaw taala has greatness talking about his names and attributes
during the prescribed invocations that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam gave us pondering on the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala in his creation, but Everywhere you look, there are ayat for people who have vision in their hearts, that they see everything every day the sunrises, they see signs of Allah subhanaw taala. Every time they breathe in the field, Allah subhanaw taala has Uranus
and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us He warns us he says
talking a lot. And we all love to talk without the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala hardens the hearts.
We love to sit and gather, socialize and we talk about everything from politics to everything else. How many gatherings are there where there is the crew from Moscow.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam teaches us that that hardens the heart and then he goes on to say, and the furthest from Allah
is a heart that has been hardened.
So the opposite of that, to gain connectedness with Allah Subhana Allah to gain attachment with the last one at Allah is to have is to be in constant dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala as much as possible.
Every day, every hour, not just at the time of five Salawat
every hour every minute, every breath should be with every heartbeat. Because every breath is by the armor of Allah subhanaw taala every heartbeat that we have
not aware of, is by the amount of loss. So we should be in constant remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and that's what is the healing of our hearts. That's what will prepare us now this is it requires effort because we are busy in many different things, okay? And also Rasul Allah Sonam teaches us that through his companion Hans Allah Who, who was concerned about a situation like this, he was, he was in the presence of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he goes home to his family, to halaal things enjoying his family and children. And he finds that the state of his heart that imagine that he had goes down
and he rushes out, he says, I'm a monastic I am a hypocrite. Because with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. I'm like that. Five minutes later, I'm with my family. My state of the tub is different.
And emits Abubakar, acidic. And who and he asks him Why are you saying such a thing? Angela can never be a hypocrite. He says, This is my state and Abu Bakr Siddiq rhodiola. Han says, this is also my state and they go to Rasulullah Salallahu Salam. And he says that if you had that level of Eman all the time, the angels would check your hands in the streets and in your beds. In other words, it will go up and down. But you have to be always conscious of Allah subhanaw taala that's how we develop the attachment to Allah subhanaw taala that's why it's all of our energies, whether it's external, what we do with our bodies, with our senses with our eyes and all those and our internal
drives our emotions would be in line with a loss of habitat.
That's why someone has said
if you want to know what is your status, what is your state with Allah subhanaw taala
then look at what is a loss rantala state with the news yourself.
If you are in constant should witnessing a lost $1 everywhere and always in awe and reverence and intercooler and taqwa, then you know that that's your state with a loss. But if you are in a state of law,
and you never remember Allah subhanaw taala, then Allah Subhana Allah does not have time for you as Allah. Allah says, Allah takuna Kala Dena, natural law
and don't be among those who forget Allah because Allah subhanaw taala will make them forget themselves what does that means forget themselves as they're human beings they are special creatures of Allah they will be like animals like everybody else, they will forget who their rank is and what their purpose in life is. And what is the status Allah has given them.
Now, most of us,
remember Allah subhanaw taala episodically
what is the closest servant is to Allah subhanaw taala who was Sajid when he is in Salah.
Now let you and me look within ourselves and see I am present in front of Allah subhanaw taala My face is towards the Qibla is my heart
facing a Lost Planet Allah are my thoughts. Am I with Allah subhanaw taala even in Salah
if I'm conducting business, if I've got everything else I have to do this and I'm making lists of things to be done as soon as the Salah is over. Then even in Santa, I'm in a state of guzzler.
Okay. Sometimes we are reading or an and our thoughts are elsewhere. Sometimes we are doing caspia then we are counting
and we don't even know what we are saying we are not aware.
So our internal energies have to be focused towards Allah subhanaw taala sometimes we raise our hands in law
and we are always in a hurry in
one minute, two minutes if we do draw for 10 minutes people behind you will feel what something is wrong. Because I need to go I need to rush.
rush to something better.
Yeah, there is narration that Allah subhanaw taala as we know, has a conversation with us in Salah.
When we say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Allah subhanaw taala hamadani rb D and so on so forth the whole thesis then in Sahih Muslim
but when the servant is standing in front of Allah subhanaw
Allah subhanaw taala turns his watch towards his servant his attention towards him. And then if the servant turns his face away, it doesn't mean he's doing this. But his called turns away to other than Allah Allah subhanaw taala says Elaine Abdi to where my servant Illa Hara mini to something better than me.
And our last mantra does that three times and if the person does not focus back on last month Allah turns away
who is the loser?
So we need to bring life into our a bear that
we perfect the external, the family aspects. How do I bend is my whoo perfect that's very all of that is very, very important, but it is not sufficient.
Allah subhanaw taala does not look at the exteriors he looks at what's in the heart.
So it's very, very important that we train ourselves to be in constant Vicar from last pinata.
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us he compares it gives us an example. The example of those who remember Allah subhanaw taala and those who do not remember Allah subhanaw taala is like the example of the living and the dead.
In another narration, he says the houses in which Allah, Allah is Israel remembered and those in which Allah Subhana Allah is not remembered is like the example of the living and the dead.
we have to be living our ibadat have to be living so that they can be
acceptable to almost every activity bar there is a gift we are presenting to our rub. Yala. Here's my Salah. Now let's look back after every Salah let's look back after we have to do more Hansa, after Juma
was my Salah of the quality that it is befitting that the angel should present it that era Your servants so and so has sent this as a gift to you.
If not, then we have to work on it. The first thing that we need to walk away work on in this project of Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala is to improve the quality of our Salah.
Yes, it's important to do lot of Nevada. But each of those Nevada fill the extra should be done with focus not to count numbers, you know, I did 60 Records. It's not the numbers, if you do do Raka as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us, a person who performs to Raka perfectly will enter
in your whole lifetime.
But it has to be at a certain standard. Today we look last month Allah promises the virtues of Salah that it stops you from fracture.
Okay, from evil actions and you know,
other things that are lost what Allah has forbidden, but yet we see people who are praying five times a day and they are committing measure cabal, including lying and other things cheating
is not that the Salah doesn't have the power, but their Salah is not of the quality that brings that effect. So one thing that we all need to work on myself first is focused on every surah.
You see, it is narrated by many of our salaf specially about zainul, Aberdeen or the Alon that whenever the other used to be called his face used to become paid.
You know as if he's scared, they used to ask him you are from the handle bite what happens to you? He says, Don't you know who I am going to be standing in front of
today when other one is called What do we do? We continue talking.
We don't even honor that call.
by stopping talking and doing what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us. You repeat what the muslin says and say this and finish by making this da for for Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Then he says this will guarantee you my intercession on the day of judgment and we are too busy.
So every step when we go forward, oh, we have to be conscious. I am preparing to meet to stand in front of horrible enemy.
That's when we just like we are washing we should be washing our hearts from all of the concerns. This thing is has to doesn't matter right now. I have no time for anyone or anything except a law. I have
To prepare myself, when we stand we stand with reverence and all. We don't stand what is for sure.
Person fixing is a mama, somebody's scratching here sisters fixing the edge of insanity that is lack of Osho because Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said so he saw somebody moving excessively in salah and he says if his heart What did he say? If his heart was in his shoe, his body would also be in a horseshoe. He should stand like a statue, because you stand in front of Allah, you're on these guards stand in front of Buckingham Palace, they stand, nothing moves fly can come and sit on their nose, or go out of their nostrils, they will not move. Why? Because they're standing in front of a brick built or stone building in which the queen is not even there.
And we stand in front of the King of Kings
So have that reverence that awareness of Allah, now it's not going to just suddenly come when I send in Salah now, because we are in Salah what we are outside of Salah, if you've got all the words,
do you think it will suddenly go away magically just because we say Allahu Akbar, no. So we have to fix our life outside
and come in the liquor of Allah subhanaw taala at all moments, then our quality of Salah will improve.
That's the first step. So what is meant by horseshoe, that means you are so aware of Allah subhanaw taala that it makes everything you are blind to everything else, just like when a real bright light comes on you You can see anything else. That's what it should be that our hearts should feel the knower of Allah subhanaw taala the awful loss of Allah tala the fear of Allah subhanaw taala the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala it makes you forget everything else. that's crucial. And that has to be developed. And there is an effort the Sahaba made effort. Did they have distractions in the Salah Of course we have many narrations. Okay, many narrations we don't have time to go into them of what
kind of issues that they had in Salah.
Last month, Allah says yeah, you will learn in a minute Quran. The Quran kathira
for you who have attained to faith.
remember Allah Do you think of Allah cathedra in abundance.
Most times when the word Vicar of Allah comes in the in the Quran, it comes with this adjective kathira abundance, this word has not been used with any other act of a bother.
Not Salah kathira hajah Tierra de casa de only Vic cathedra means unlimited.
As much as you can,
as much as you can. Allah smart Allah tells us both Corolla PR Mama.
These are those who remember Allah standing, sitting and lying on their sides, which means all times all physicians wherever you are,
as much as you can
remember Allah subhanaw taala
as I was saying earlier, most of us remember last month Allah periodically
Do you know the interesting thing last month Allah mentions
in one place
he's describing a type of people he says
they come to Salah
you're our own enough to show people
and they stand camo Kusama lazy, you know solid time to drag myself up. And then what does he say?
Well if Quran Allah ha illa kalila and they do not remember Allah except a little.
He does not say they don't remember a lot all he says they remember Allah, but little. And who is this characteristic of he calls them the munafo?
The hypocrites. They remember Allah little
by that definition anamorphic because I don't remember last mantle as much as he deserves.
This is what
Last one third describes.
So, my dear brothers and sisters,
a beautiful day in the perfect day.
We have the most perfect astable, Kalam Kitab Allah, the Quran of Allah subhanaw taala we have the most perfect of all of our lives creation
as our example, Salam
and he has shown us how to be in remembrance of the last one, he has shown us how to gain caught up to a loss.
So it is up to us to act on those steps.
Now, as I said before, it's to be done gradually, it's not going to suddenly, you know, you are not going to become hassanal bursary tomorrow. And I'm not going to be like that. But we have to make a concerted regular effort
to work towards that goal. And the last month Allah so merciful, that person who starts on that journey, even if he dies the next day and last month, Allah gives him the reward of having reached the destination.
And I like that idea of the person who had murdered 100 people who set out to rectify himself in died on the way and the last one at Allah's mercy overtook him and we know the details of that. So we make that sincere effort we do though, but one last month, Allah four hours of law, the time that we have spent without his remembrance, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among Daiquiri
and Allah subhanaw taala.
promises us in the Quran, the Quran Allah haka Pharaoh was accurate. Allahu Allahu monferrato. Athena, that those men who remember Allah subhanaw taala, again the same adjective Cathy ra in abundance, and those women who do the same for them on last month, Allah has prepared His mellifera His forgiveness and reward that Allah Allah calls as of aim,
allies your reward.
Okay, allies the reward.
we need to start on that working on the quality of practically speaking in the quality of our Salah.
We need to sit in the prescribed set some time every day, time and place preferably after fudger for reading the Quran, whatever you can
15 minutes 20 minutes regularly.
Okay, we need to sit after each seller.
Okay. For the vicar that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam prescribed it's on the wall in that section.
And it takes five minutes. We have to get out of the habit of rushing from Salah Salaam Alaikum Salaam Alaikum. And gone like the Jets fired under us that we are running off to some There is nothing better to run to sit for a few minutes in the microphone last one the prescribed as car.
And Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us the morning of God and the evening as he has taught us to do certain tasks B hat and
then takbeer that we do those in the morning and we send salah and Solomon the Prophet sallallaahu Listen, all of this is available in the books and we can sit together perhaps tomorrow or something and go over all of this so that we can start doing these things because it comes from practice. It comes from doing
and then we have the special what I call situational of god that was allowed Islam teaches up when you leave the house you do this when you enter the masjid you do this when you sit on your ride you do this when you look in the mirror you do this when you go situation love God that we learn those and that's how 24 hours we will be in consciousness of
these are the US Barb of cleansing the heart and making the vision clear. And what does that do that when you are in the dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala and when you see everything you understand the color and color of Allah, what does it do to your heart Allah, Allah Himself tells us Allah be decree ly
and indeed, it's in the vicar in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala that you find information and tranquility, peace in your heart, no matter what happens around you
You are at peace, you're not bothered. And the opposite of that
woman out of the end decree and the one who turns away from my remembrance, and Allahumma ishutin danka his life will be made constricted, stress, anxiety, depression, nervous breakdown, what's happening, what's happening, what's going to happen, worry about everything.
So we have a choice, you can be at peace at all times. Or you can be stressed out, as they say, you know, the biggest problem in the West is stress. And this has now become the West because this time and I've come to India, I've seen very little difference between what the West is and what this is.
And everybody is racing,
in a direction which is opposite
to what leads to success. Last month, Allah has shown us two paths.
And I've guided them to two paths.
There is a path of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the path towards Allah pleasure, the pattern of remembrance of the last one after the path of obedience of Allah smother the path of submission to Allah subhanaw taala, the path of dying with the kalama and there is a path of enjoyment and having a good time, and they both have their destinations and you know that better than me. So May Allah subhanaw taala make us among those who are always in remembrance of Him. May Allah smart Allah make us among those who are always grateful to him. And we should always be asking and begging Allah subhanaw taala Yala make me
what you would like me to be. Make my pure that you are pleased with me and make my ending better than my beginning. And take me in a state of absolute and complete submission. Loving submission to you enter your Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam in a state of obedience.
