Bismillah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala l mursaleen. Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Haile he while he was able to sell this live on Kaziranga thi Rama, Badu wherever the sisters
we have been talking about
reflecting on the forearm,
and we have used sort of the Fatiha as the way to understand that
whatever I've said to you over these sessions, obviously is not restricted to sort of in fact here
it is, it extends to the entire kalaba philosophy
which is worthy of understanding of reflecting upon with the intention of applying it in our lives.
Allah mentioned his Hachette
as the purpose of gaining knowledge, where Allah Rhonda said in nema yaksha law mean your body.
Allah said that the people among the slaves among the creatures among them among the human beings are the ones who have the greatest hardship of Allah.
Who have the greatest hotshot of Allah in the hearts, these are the Allah.
Allah is not saying Allah have the knowledge I say only the one was Kasha is an island.
So and I'll him in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala is not somebody who has a degree who has written books and who
teaches, you know, Islamic studies
or who has graduated from this or that darwino or this or that mother, sir. And Eileen is the one who has her * in his heart. Now what is such an associate is the author and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala in
the oil and majesty of Allah.
Now, why is that?
Why is that important? Because that is the foundation that is the fundamental principle on which everything runs.
CATIA is important because hotshot will drive all decision making in life.
A person behaves differently if that person is connected with a lot of handles that
when that person has the pleasure of Allah in his heart, pleasure produces two things. Number one, crusher to Allah reduces the fear the hope of offending Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it produces taqwa,
the concern for the pleasure of Allah, the fear of offending Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the
outcome of crusherthe of Allah subhanho that a person has no culture of Allah doesn't get
doesn't get they are run by their own knifes by their own desire. They feel like doing something they do it they don't feel like doing it, they don't do it. The thought that I should consider and see whether my action my doing something or am I not doing something? Does this please Allah subhanho wa Taala not this thought does not come into the minds of people who do not have much
People who have
this thought is predominant in the mind. never goes away. Does it please Allah subhanaw taala not distinguish I'm going to eat as a please on this way of earning that I have does it please Allah, this way of behavior I have does it is Allah
this transaction that I have intending to, to enter into does it please Allah,
that is tougher. So hersha to Allah produces. The second thing which Roger tola produces is because the person's heart is completely permeated and soaked
in the ore and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala
in the jellal and Jamal of Allah subhanaw taala in the holder of the result of a loss of habitat.
The person then loses all fear and all anxiety connected with the world
because that person
is completely engrossed and immersed in the glory and majesty of Allah.
Many times before and you would have heard it, those who listen to my lectures May Allah bless you, you would have heard this many times
I will I've said this that if you take 1000 watt halogen bulb, and if you look into that ball, if you light it up and you stare into it, and please don't do that it will damage your eyes permanently.
But if you do that, even momentarily, even for a very short time, half a second, if you look at that light, and then you look away
What do you see, you see that light
for a short period of time you are completely blinded to whatever reality is there.
Right you lose your night vision completely goes blank. You don't have to stare into 1000 word but one of the principles we use as far as if you are camping especially if you're camping in the forest where there may be
some danger some dangerous animals then of course you have to write a fire to keep them warm or you have to get light a fire to cook your food but you are very careful that you don't look into the fire. Now this is not 1000 watts anything it's a it's a very you know it's it's nice illumination, and the vibe is very attractive because especially in the dark when the fire the flames are dancing the whole time and it's a very attractive picture of a fire in the dark. But you are careful not to look into the fire because you know that if you stare into the fire, it made it you will be fascinated with it. But when you look away from it you have completely lost your night vision you
will be able to see nothing at all until your eyes once again get used to seeing in the dark our eyes We can see quite well in the dark. I mean unless there's something wrong
with your eyes otherwise, we can see quite well because there is ambient light from the moon ambient light from light from stars ambient light from you know wherever you're staying, maybe there is there is a city nearby or something so there is enough light to see reasonably well.
Yeah, unless you are in a place when it's a completely dark night is no moon there's no there are no stars, and you are in a place where there's no light leaking out from human habitation then it is true darkness. But otherwise, there is always some light. But despite that, if you are looking into Avaya, you will not be able to see anything for a while until your eyes get used to seeing in low light. Now, I'm giving a long explanation why because to explain to you the second benefit of CATIA tovala
and that is our core trust and complete faith in Allah subhanho that
one fruit of Russia is taqwa. The second fruit of question is token because when the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala completely permeates my heart, then I don't trust anybody. I don't care about anybody. I don't fear anybody. I don't look to anybody for any reward or any help.
Because by Allah is with me. Whoa, American in American college, Allah Allah, Allah said, I am Allah is with you, he is with you, wherever you are.
Now let's think about that again the same principle two things it produces one a fear of committing a sin because a loss of $100 with me, when the person when the when the slave has this understanding of what Who am I?
Who are my he is with me.
Wherever I might be.
So 24 seven, my rub is with me. So constantly My concern is, I must never say or do something with displeases Allah.
And the second benefit of that is I feel completely fearless.
completely free from anxiety completely free from depression completely free from every fear of this dunya because if my rub is with me, who can harm me, if I buy rubbish with me, who can deprive me of what my Rob has decreed for me.
This is the meaning of reflection on the Koran. The reflection of the Quran is this is to think about this and to keep this in your in your heart and to grow this feeling in the heart.
So Allah subhanho data.
So we reflected on sort of the Fatiha. And we saw, starting from the name of Allah subhanaw, taala geladeira himself and his attributes of infinite mercy
and continuous mercy without any break in it, no peaks and troughs.
And we looked at the the producer at presenting our thanks our sugar to him, and
you know, feeling delighted and happy in the glory and magnificence of Allah.
And then we will reflect on the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is once again the most infinite, the most infinitely merciful,
and the most infinitely beneficent
and that he is the Owner of the Day of Judgment.
But when we stand before the Owner of the Day of Judgment, we remind ourselves who are we standing before our ohana right?
Before that we looked at and then we said, he economically agnostic.
We said, we all love we worship only you. And we ask help only from you. So having seen the glory and magnificence and majesty of Allah, we then reinforce and reiterate our connection with him.
And then we moved on. And we say, God, Allah guide us to the road that leads you
guide us to the pathway that leads to you.
And then we further clarify that and say the pathway of those who you blessed, and that was the perfect and the number one on them is also
not the pathway, not the path and not the road of those who incurred your anger
or those who went astray.
So having done that,
and I said, we need to focus in our hearts and say, does the hotshot of Allah subhanho data fill my heart?
That is the purpose of reflection on the
as I said, I think in the beginning the first session or something like that, that whenever, no matter how many times a day, whenever you pick up the Quran, before you start reading this, ask yourself, what is this in my hand?
What is this in my hand
and do it yourself Is it this is the column of Allah. This is a lot of manual without talking to me.
The Quran was revealed to Muhammad Rasul Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, but by inference, it was revealed to every Muslim
game down for every Muslim.
And that's the thing to remind ourselves, of brothers sisters. Islam is the name of a practice, it is not the name of a theology. It is not the name of a philosophy. It is the name of a practice.
And like any practice, it is as good as it is practiced.
You don't practice it, nothing will have
meaning it will not benefit you. As a Muslim, if you don't practice it, it will actually harm you because you are by you're not practicing, you are going to make yourself liable for punishment.
But even if we leave that aside for the time being, definitely it cannot benefit me if I'm not practicing.
Like any practice,
like exercise, for example, physical exercise, knowing
about how to do exercise,
knowing that you need to warm up first and then you must get into it gradually. And then if you are doing aerobics and and Robbie's enthusiasm is first
before you start pumping iron, which is another anaerobic exercise, right, knowing all of this will not make you stronger.
It will not make you more energetic.
It will, it will do nothing for you.
Unless you practice it.
Right. Just knowing is worthless. So should you know or not of course, you know, because if you don't know how will you practice.
So that's the reason why it is very important for us to study Islam. Learn Islam, but once you learn Islam
Then we need to practice.
Once you learn Islam, we then need to practice Islam.
And that's why I said Islam is a practice.
It's not simply a theory or a philosophy to be studied and discussed and
you know, like we seem to do analyze, we analyze and we argue about it and so on. And at the end of the day we forget
we forget it, and we lead our lives. Anyway, we please.
Islam is sirata mustafi
it is the path of steadfastness
is now is the sauna. Because the Sunnah is the living demonstration of Islam.
Salam was the living Quran, he was called the living Quran. And that is why I lost that incentive.
To show how to those who know why.
Right? So personally, not asking, why should I pray is annoyed? How should I pray? I know I should pray, I would want I like to pray, I want to pray. Please show me how,
as soon as a result came to show us how.
When we ask Allah Subhana Allah for guidance, we say
let us reflect on what our own attitude is towards us.
Because we are asking a lot of our data for the sun in every seller.
Right? Everything they asking Allah for guidance to the summer in Arizona, and what is our attitude towards the summer,
sort of fall, as I said, is over.
So that does make Toba for neglecting.
And may Allah subhanaw taala forgive us for deliberately ignoring and going against the sun.
So the Father has doubled every single Iota. So
let's make the near to stop doing this. Which is to stop disregarding the Quran immediately and follow the Sunnah the best of our ability.
There's realize that the mass of land of those who want to hurt Islam
discount the value and power and importance of Russia versus Allah and the Sunnah, in the eyes of the Muslims.
They know the content of the Quran. And what they have done, therefore, is to devalue the importance of Hadees. And Sunnah in the eyes of the oma.
They tried to separate the word from the action
so that we will never benefit from the word.
The Quran is the word. The Sunnah is the action.
If you separate the Koran, from the sun, if you set up separate the word from the action, then the word has no meaning.
When the actions produce results, words from producers, only actions
and if only actions produce results, then we have to ask ourselves a question and say, What are my actions showing?
My brothers and sisters
Islam came to change the world
and has the power to do that.
The Sahaba showed us this in practice. Yet today, we refuse to believe and accept the advantages of what we have and and are sacred and are scared
about this. Scared of I don't know.
The world respects whatever you do with confidence, even things which are apparently negative, and apparently peculiar. The world will respect that. If you do it with confidence.
So what's about about the sooner that you don't want to practice?
Ask yourself this question.
You have to imitate somebody you have to follow somebody
Why not follow a solar system? I mean this is really a wrong way of,
of installing it and exhorting you, but I'm just trying to do my best in whichever way I can.
So ask yourself these questions seriously and make changes in your life
nobody noticed is the Sunnah is Islam and the Sunnah is forth.
It does not mean left to our own whims and fancies to practice or leave the sauna. Allah, Allah put great Baraka in following this on and he warned those who refuse to practice it. A lot of other third opinion Gundam dabura Allah Fatah buni yubico la Webfoot lagom druva como la hoffa Rahim. Allah Raja said say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to all mankind. If you really love Allah, then follow me make my device imitate me. And then what level Allah will love you and He will forgive your sins. And Allah is around that is oft forgiving, Most Merciful. So ask yourself this question. Do I want a last round of data? Let me
see, does the ask this just ask this question. Do I want a love love me? I know it sounds like a dumb question. You might say, Well, you know, who will say no, no, that's not the matter of just answering me a me I'm nothing. Ask yourself this question. Do I want Allah to love me?
And then to try to understand that say, what is the benefit of becoming the Beloved of Allah? What is the benefit if Allah loves me?
And remember, I'm not using this word love, this is this word Allah said, you will become Allah. Allah, Allah, we love you. Allah, Allah who, the one who follows the sun. Now of course realize
this is a word that is used by Allah Subhana Allah. So I'm not promise you something that I have no control of. I have no power to promise No. I'm merely involving your water last marriage, Allah told you.
Ask yourself therefore, what is the benefit of Allah loving me? Is there is? Is there a benefit for me? Is there some gain for me? I mean, this is a bad way of, of, you know, thinking about it that we are, we will love Allah only we find some personal gain.
But even if self interest is the only motivator, just ask yourself that question.
I've learned sisters, from our lives. He doesn't look like these questions are obvious.
Because if they were, then how come we don't follow the sun?
How can we shave our beards? How can we
don't praise the sun now to set up after the facade? How can we do not follow this on in terms of our behavior in terms of our marvella in terms of dealing with people? How can we tell lie so easily? How can we, you know, we deceive each other? How come we are not reliable partners, to partners?
And so on over the long, long litany of problems what I'm saying how does that happen? If in fact we claim to love also like salsa.
So let's get serious.
And ask ourselves
if we want a lot lovers, and if we want Allah to forgive our sins, to accept our Diwan help and protectors,
then reflect on the fact that this is so easy to ensure
this follow Rasul Allah hate Salaam Salaam.
do what he did. Don't Don't use your head. Don't fall into arguments.
convince you in a stupid logic.
Do what is normal? Do what is natural.
Think about that, how wonderful that is
so full of grace and dignity. so full of goodness all around.
And what is that this will not offer services.
So not something that is difficult to do. It is easy and beneficial in the world. And it earns a lot to have that as pleasure and you'll become the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala
you become a way of Allah.
What more can you ask?
What more can you ask?
Ask yourself this question and say Do I want my daughter to be accepted?
Do I want my daughter such that when I make dua, Allah subhanaw taala granted me Do I want this. If I want it, it's very easy. Follow those who now of course also Solomon
How wonderful that to do this, to follow us on means to live a life of grace and dignity.
so full of goodness all around.
It's not something that is difficult room. It's easy and beneficial in this world and it burns Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleasure
and you become the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala
you become a valley of Allah. What more can you ask what more can I ask?
Ask yourself this question and say Do you not want to do are to be accepted?
Don't you want the angels recognize you and say, there goes
no matter what.
So what is the
benefit of being recognized? As an almighty? Our the Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah asked this question to yourself and say, What is the benefit of being recognized?
By the by like, by the angels?
What is the benefit of being recognized by the angels as a Amati of Muhammad Sallallahu Allah.
Allah, Allah also warned those who are engrossed with the dunya and for whom the approval of every loser is more important than the approval of Allah Subhana
Allah the Quran Gundam Allah
whatever no why why was Why did you come here to come? Well, I'm well who knows?
What ijarah doc Shona casada Well, my son, Keanu Tarragona. I have balay come in Allah He was holy word jihad in peace I really for the rhombus, who had diety Allahu Emery. One La Villa de la Komal passerine. in Saratoga, last Roger said said to them, yeah, well, I was gonna say to people, including the Muslims, if your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, your your meaning your relatives, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline
and the dwellings the houses you build, and you feel so happy,
looking at them, and living in them, you delight in them.
If all of these things are dear to you, that Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu Sallam and striving hard and fighting in the cause of Allah, then wait until Allah subhanaw taala brings about a decision of punishment. And Allah does not guide the people who are farcical and who are rebellious and disobedient, almost rather,
I think about that loss of 100 data, enumerated all those things we love in this life. And all those whose opinions devalue and whose approval we seek, and say clearly that if we do not love Allah Subhana
if we do not love his messenger, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we do not love the struggle in the path of Allah. More than we love these things, then Allah will reject us and punish us.
Now what is the sign of love for Allah?
That is to follow the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu.
What is a sign of love of Gnosticism to follow the Sunnah of proselytism. He's also a struggle in this path is a source of great blessing.
When will we realize the value of this might be my brother's is when we realize the value of this? Why do we deliberately refuse to accept the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Why do we refuse to accept the honor of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu
yet We ask Allah, Allah to guide us to the Sunnah in every rocket of every cell
in his days, why do we Why do we lie?
The messenger sallallahu Sallam said,
some people will come on the Day of Judgment. And that email will be outstanding. Its light will shine from their chests and from their right hands, and it will be said to them. Glad tidings to you today. A salary home and goodness for you. Enter into it forever. Enter into Jenna forever.
The angels and prophets will be jealous of the love
Allah has fallen. The Sahaba said, Yasser Allah Who are these people, he replied, they are not from you. You are my companions, but they are my beloved. They will come after you. And we'll find the book of the book The Quran made redundant by the people and asuna which had been killed by them.
So they will grab hold of the book, and the sooner I will receive them
and go on, let's see how beautiful and the end and they will revive so they will catch up with the book of Allah and the Sunnah. And they will revive the meaning they will live by them. And they will
read the Quran and Sunnah. And they will teach the Puranas are not the people, and they will experience in that a path.
And the mythos said they will read them and teach them the hora zona, and they will experience in that path a punishment or trials more severe and more ugly than new Sahaba have experienced. Indeed, the amount of one of them is equal to the amount of 40 of you. They show you that one of them is equal to 40 of your shoulder, because you found a helper towards the truth which is sort of himself, but they will find no helper towards truth. They will be surrounded by by time tourists every place, they will be in the surroundings of
They will be surrounded by tyrant rulers in every place, they will be the surroundings of this, the loser of Allah will come to them and they will have the honor of all of it on their hands. Then he said Oh Allah, give them and make them my girlfriend.
This is a head Asian Muslim.
to help us to
to live in his world in a way that is pleasing to Him jealous because nothing else matters. We live our lives in a way that Allah likes, then we are successful. And if you do the opposite, then we have failed. No matter what our worldly status may or may not be. What's Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah. He was a member of the karma Rahimi was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
