hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MB mursaleen. While Ali he was having his main COVID, we were discussing the issue of the blindness of the heart where Allah Subhana Allah said la dama laughstub wa kintamani kulula TV sudo.

00:00:20--> 00:00:44

And we mentioned yesterday that we see with our knowledge, we do not see with our eyes, we see with our knowledge, we can say that we have seen something only when we have recognized it. And to recognize something means to understand how that thing affects us. recognition is not a is not something which is

00:00:46--> 00:01:25

absolutely objective in the sense that, you know, we just know something it's recognition means that I recognized something in the in the way that it affects me. And that's why actual recognition of something that results in action on our part. So what is it that produces the blindness of the heart? The first thing that produces the blindness of the heart is lack of knowledge. Obviously, if you see without knowledge, then if you don't have knowledge, then we cannot see. And this is the issue of a bullet. The issue of taking a lesson from what we are seeing in life. Many times we are beguiled and deceived by the apparent

00:01:26--> 00:01:53

picture that we see before our eyes, we see apparently, great pomp and glory and great honor, but that pomp and glory and honor is really a sign of the humiliation that Allah subhanaw taala is about to hit on the heads of those people. It's a sign of the anger of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah subhanaw taala for example, give us this example in the life of when he when you describe the situation with frown, and the

00:01:54--> 00:02:14

pomp and glory and splendor of the Pharaonic Egypt and the Empire Egyptian Empire, which Iran owned and which he rolled over. And all that pomp and glory did not save him from the punishment of Alice Renata. Similarly, we might see a picture of apparent mobility, apparent

00:02:15--> 00:02:43

humiliation, apparently variation, where in the case of use valet Salaam we see him imprisoned for a crime that he didn't commit, a falsely accused, he couldn't even defend himself and he's thrown into the prison, and we see him in the prison. But what are we seeing in that prison? Who are we seeing in the prison we're seeing in the prison, the most honored are human beings. And we have almost ran over to somebody about whom Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:44--> 00:03:00

sent down a whole surah in the Quran, Majeed which is what it was of. So the question is that does my knowledge enable my heart to see the reality of something and if the if you have the knowledge to see the reality of something, then we can say that the heart is not blind?

00:03:01--> 00:03:47

To that the first cause for blindness of heart is lack of knowledge, lack of understanding, lack of recognizing the glory of Allah subhanaw taala in his creation, lack of seeing the reality of what is and what is zillah? What is honor and what is dishonor in the life that goes around, goes along? Or are the second reason why hearts become blind, is from the Hadees of sola, sola, where he mentioned the word van. And when the Sahaba asked him what is one, and he said that one is hobo de Nicaragua, two modes, and this is these are two causes for the blindness of the heart. When people when their hearts are blinded by this, then they get caught up in this dunya. And they forget the asherah, hobo

00:03:47--> 00:04:19

dunya. They love the dunya and they use all the resources that Allah subhanaw taala has given them in order to beautify this dunya in order to collect dystonia, and to surround themselves with material, they collect junk. And they have this collection of of this kind that kind of all of which is junk and garbage, because it does not help them one bit in the dunya or the Astra. I mean, all the all the stuff that we collect around us, how does it really help us even in this dunya man, forget about it? The answer obviously doesn't help us. So this is

00:04:20--> 00:04:49

where we spend money and we spend resources and we spend the best of our time on collection of dounia. But we do nothing for our x Hello, may Allah protect us from that. And the second one is gonna hear the mouth being afraid of death, being fearful that some if we speak the truth, being fearful that if you speak the truth, if you stand up for justice, that that's that we will be harmed. This is also from the reasons for the blindness of the heart and the scar here. The

00:04:50--> 00:04:56

third reason for blinding blindness of the heart is before I go there, another one

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

another way in which the bloody deca hobo Jr.

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Have blinds The heart is because it it forces us and it deceives us into practice practicing the deen selectively, and we take from the deal what we like and we leave out what we don't like. And this is a clear case of attracting the anger of Allah subhanaw taala where he specifically mentioned this when he said to me will not be bad in Kitagawa food, I'll be bad. And Allah said, What is the reward for such people? And he said, because you and Phil had to do Nia Yamanaka to Dona Isla de la de la de la These are the people who take from the city as is a photo we don't have a bad tsunami but do take from the from the book some things and we'll leave out some things meaning that we

00:05:45--> 00:06:01

practice what we like to practice and believe or what we don't want to practice. We do what we don't like to practice we leave out and what we like to practice practice, meaning that even when we practice that then whatever practice it is something that we are doing out of our knifes, it is not something which is the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:02--> 00:06:51

I love it. I had remind myself when you have the famous saying of mama Shafi, Rahim Allah, Allah, where he said, This life is a moment, let it be a moment of obedience. so beautifully said this life is a moment it's one moment and let it be a moment of obedience that one moment why do you want to corrupt it and spoil it and adulterated by putting disobedience in it become to the last of the reasons and this is not by no means an exhaustive list. I'm just sharing what I am thinking of. The last reason for blindness of the heart is the issue of committing sins because as Adam said that when a person commits a sin, a black spot is built on his heart, and he doesn't make over the start,

00:06:51--> 00:07:37

the squat stays there. And this is until his heart completely becomes black. And that is a very sad situation to be in that by committing sins continuously and continuously committing sins. We become blind, our own our own hearts, and the heart is no longer able to see what comes ahead of us. And as I said yesterday, the cure for this is to remember our deaths most often. Remember that one day we will die, I'm reminded about of the teaching and saying of our teacher, Madonna, Eunice patella, Allah, Allah, Phil is covered with newer and given the West in the Jenna used to say that there is an Iran after which there is no Salah, and there is a Salah before which there is no other. He said

00:07:37--> 00:08:17

when the child is born, and Assad is given in his ear, but there is no salah and when that child grows up, and when he gets old and he dies, a Salah is performed but before that Salah there is no other than because the reason for that Salah was already done and it was already given when the child was born. So life really is between that other understanding of the Salah, how much time is there between the giving of an understanding of the Salah? That is that is the extent of our life and why would we want to destroy this life by disobeying Allah subhanaw taala by going against the Sunnah of his NaVi sallallahu alayhi wasallam especially when we know that following this Deen going

00:08:17--> 00:09:02

on the path of Allah subhanaw taala as orders and going according to the son of his and W salallahu alayhi salam leads to winning in this dunya and after Islam is for winning in both places in dunya. What after now if somebody consciously chooses not to follow that path, and somebody consciously chooses even though he calls himself a Muslim consciously chooses to go against the Sun navasota he sallallahu sallam, what can you say about that person? I asked Allah subhanaw taala to save us from such folly and from such stupidity and enable us to do that which is pleasing to Him and to save us from that which is not pleasing to Him for several da da da da Vila Karim, Allah Allah. He was happy

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

as my erotica.
