Salawat equal to ma hemara cattle
smilla on hamdulillah Asana was Salam ala rasulillah when only he mosambi Omen wala
lamartine of Sita ha ha was a key and Romans and
give us enough so that's conscious of you
purify our lower new Foose because you are the best of all those who purify
and you are the guardian and the protector, and the owner of mine laughs
shala we'll start with a brief summary of what we said yesterday,
the various types of new foods, which is the plural of knifes from the lower cattle like to the predatory knifes to the shaytani knifes, and then the angelic amalaki knifes, we talked about the impact that the nuts has on our kulu. We talked about the purpose for which we were created,
which is a Buddha for Allah subhanaw taala. And the fulfillment of this or Buddha requires that we return to Allah subhanaw taala in a state of soundness of our polu, which is called carbon celene.
We talked about things that have impact on our hearts, especially our lower knifes, the western associate on the effect of our our sinfulness, all of which impacts
the condition of our hearts.
The two other things that I didn't mention yesterday, that impact our hearts, that is the environment in which we live, or the environment that we choose to expose our kulu to
as Rasulullah Salallahu Salam teaches us by giving us an example, that
if a person goes to a perfumer,
a store that sells perfume, and even if he doesn't buy anything there, he enjoys the smell of the perfume.
And when he comes out, he smells nice, even though he didn't buy anything. Similarly, a person who sits in the company of an iron Smith, but they've got iron in the fire.
And even if he doesn't touch anything, the smoke settles on his clothes, and some of the sparks may burn his clothes. So he has the effect of that. So our hearts are subjected to the environment in which we expose our hearts. So if it's an environment of disobedience, gatherings in which Allah tala is being disobeyed,
to any degree, it will have a negative impact on our hearts. On the same token, if we expose our hearts to the company of the righteous,
it's going to have an effect on our hearts. Why did the Sahaba achieve
the states with the loss of them upon with the last one at all? Why do you think they achieved it? Because of the compact, they were unique, and that's why they were the federal best of generations, because they benefit from the actual companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu. So it's very, very important for us to understand that what we study is information. What we imbue into our hearts is by search bar by companionship, and that's why whenever you find righteous people, you should always sit with them. You should always observe them, not with a critical eye. Okay, sometimes we go just to find false with people. Of course.
Our scholars no matter what status they achieve, they are not going to be examples of perfection. Everybody's going to have some false. You don't want to go there to look at their false you will learn the good things from
And the closer you see somebody to The sooner, the more you should spend time with them because you observe how they talk, how they sit, how they move every single thing, because that's the real learning experience. In the old days, people, you know, why did some of these people become who they became Anil Malik?
A little boy?
Or the Allah Han? Why did he become who he was? Because his mother was super smart. She brought this little boy to Rasul Allah salon is what going to do? He is a small, yada, yada sobre la he will serve you.
Okay. What did that mean that he was always in the companionship of Rasul Allah.
Therefore, he became who he was, okay.
The best of the turbine? Who are the turbine, everybody knows. That's the next generation, next generation after the Sahaba
who is the best of the bobbing?
Bernie some of you may have heard of him. He actually was a contemporary of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he lived in during the lifetime of Rasulullah sallallahu. Listen, he was from Yemen. But he didn't become a Sahabi because he did not see and meet Rasulullah sallallahu is what kept him was service to his mother.
Because she was a very feeble elderly woman. He
stayed there to serve her. When he finally came, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam knew, of course, he was given the knowledge of the tribe, by Allah subhanaw taala. He told his companions that after me,
a man will come from Yemen, and his name will be a waste of money. And when he comes, you should seek Him and ask Him to do the job for you. He's telling his companions
and of course after that, and the companion specially Oh, my goodness.
They would always, every time a caravan came from Yemen, he would go to them, he says there anyone among you by the name of OSL currently. And finally in his villa, a caravan came.
And he asked those people who said yes, there is, you know, an insignificant man who's called a waste of money. And he went to him, he sought him out. And he said, do that for me. Allah, Allah went, some of the greatest companies went to have you do the answer for me? He said ameerul momineen. You are from the two lieutenants of Rasulullah. You're asking me to do the alpha you Why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu ala Silla masters. So this is the status of a wasel carny, but still, he is not at the level of the Sahaba.
Okay, that's the companionship of Rasul Allah, that's what we need to see is good companionship. That's why Rasulullah sallallahu salamina, in a similar Hadith gave gave us the example he said, whenever you see gardens of Paradise, graze in them freely.
So the Sahaba said, Yeah, rasulillah what are the gardens of Paradise? He says, The gatherings of Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. Whenever you see that, sit with them,
sit with them. There's a lot of benefit. So companionship is very, very important. And also the, who we choose, as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us.
You know, like we have the saying of birds of a feather flock together, who you hang out read, Allah smart, Allah will raise you with them.
So, because that's what identifies you, okay? So it's very, very important that we also protect our pulu by the environment that we choose to go in. Sometimes you're invited to gatherings and you know, there is going to be disobedience of philosophy.
And you say, well, it is our culture. It is our this what will so you have to be very careful with that. Very, very careful. I remember, I was invited to a wedding in in the United States of a close friend of mine.
He was at that time actually the the president of our Masjid
And his daughter was getting married.
So he knew how I felt about it. So when he invited me, I just didn't say anything. Then he reassured me said there will not be any music.
So I said, inshallah I will come. So I, we went there, and we attended the music. I mean,
we attended the wedding and the reception and the food after the food
finish, he, we recognized
that they really wanted to have the music. So
he came to me and said,
if you don't mind, we would like to, because every day youngsters want to have some music.
So I said,
that's fine. We have eaten, we live now. So he didn't allow anything to happen till we had actually left. And when I was in the parking lot, I heard the music start. So if you make certain rules for yourself, then Allah subhanaw taala will facilitate it for you. And I'm not talking about the lack of music here. I'm just giving you an example. Okay.
It's very important for us to have as we said yesterday, soft hearts.
So one of our self has said, What softens the heart it Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala a lot of Vicar abundance of the crop of last month.
He said, If after that, you still find hardness in your heart, then you should take too fast a
lot of Noah fell fast.
If after that you still find hardness in your heart. He said give a lot of Southern
if after that you still find hardness in your heart. He said dukey fella, have some orphans become guardians of some orphans. yet.
If you still find heartless in your heart, he said, always
sort of put your hands on the heads of little children.
And that's interesting. Because the way I thought of it is because they are pure.
And then he said if you still find hardness in your heart, sit in the company, companionship of the poor.
That's very interesting. If you remember one of the daughters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam was what
Allah raised me in the companionship of the poor.
Now let's look within ourselves how much time we choose to spend with the poor in Africa. These are things these are tools as Bob to soften the hearts,
Vicar, plenty of Vicar fasting, giving sadaqa taking care of the team,
little children and finally, companionship of the poor.
What is the hardness of the heart?
A heart that's not affected when the ultimate is when Allah subhanaw taala is mentioned.
The words of Allah and Allah mentioned are read out, it has no impact on the heart.
And Allah, Allah mentions this in the Quran itself in Surah Baqarah.
He mentions it in two different ways. He says about the hearts that are hardened and he says name they are harder than rocks, because even the rocks cleave as the water flows through them.
And the last one The law also mentions it in a different way. He calls he says it is not the eyes that are blind. It is the hearts that are blind which is the same thing What does it mean? hardness of the heart and blindness of the heart are similar that means they do not see the
the realities as they are.
When Allah smart Allah is mentioned, nothing happens in the heart. When his words are read, nothing happens to you. When the words are Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam are His name is mentioned and the least other we should have with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is what?
When you hear his name everyone should say what? Some llama when he was alone. If you
said once in a gathering from a 50 perspective, it is sufficient. But if you love him, you should say that softly every time you hear his name some.
So nothing has an effect when you see, and again, if you see people, there is injustice, it doesn't matter. You know, all kinds of things are happening, it doesn't have any, when you see the orders of Allah subhanaw taala being broken and violated, you feel nothing.
And this is described in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, which is the Hadith, also in the harbor in Nairobi, where he says that if you see a wrong being done, you stop it with your hand means if it's within your power, if you do not have more money, if you don't have that capacity, then with your tongue means you speak up against it. And if you don't have that strength, then at least feel that it is wrong in your heart.
And he said, that is the weakest level of email. So if even that doesn't happen, you see violation of Allah's order, right and left, it has no impact on your heart, you don't feel that, then you have fallen below that red line, that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called the man.
It's okay, that people live, whatever they want to do do.
It's going to poison the whole environment and you're living in that environment. If that ship sinks, the ship of humanity, you are going to sink with it. Okay. So it's very, very important that we work on this. And you know, we don't have time to go into the details of that, but this is just a brief answer to your to your question.
There is a
asuma sallallahu Sallam that summarizes some of this test gear to knifes that we've talked about yesterday.
He says aluminio to become an
element, young woman, colbyn nyesha woman nacinda touchbar woman in law
or law, I seek your protection from four things.
Men and women law.
knowledge that does not benefit me, in gaining nearness to you. I seek your protection, I don't want that kind of knowledge. I seek your protection from a heart lie yaksha that doesn't have a fresh shear. reverential ball and fear of you. I don't want that kind of a heart. Because that's a heart that's hard.
And I seek
and I seek your refuge from enough's, that is never satiated, that's never satisfied once more and more and more the lower new foods that we talked about, and I seek your refuge in You from a DA that is not heard.
Heard By Allah, that in other words, that is not responded to. Okay, so we all of these are part of that cause here, okay.
All right, the heart, the nuts. And as we said, ultimately the DA which helps us in this process.
So you should memorize this beautiful girl and use it with sincerity.
Now, I'm going to start with today's session.
We need to know as we said, we need to identify our nuts, we need to identify which category we fall in, what traits that I have that I need to change. Okay? Just like a doctor in the physical world of medicine. The doctors study first all the sciences that teach you about
the body, and then they go to diseases. If a doctor Imagine if you have a doctor who has studied only one disease, he knows one disease and you go to him, what's he going to see? He's only going to see that disease. He knows only TB. Now you've got a fever from something else. He says DB only you must be TB. I have a headache must be TB.
Okay. Therefore, we need to know the disease of the heart is not an again this is not so that we can diagnose others.
This is so that we can diagnose symptoms of those within ourselves. But skia is
for yourself, okay. So what's the greatest and worst of all afflictions? Of course, as we know, it is shipped with a loss.
And there are different flavors of ship, of course hamdulillah we are not idle worshipers, we are not people who do, you know, open ship the ship Kumbaya.
But there are many flavors of ship that some of us do sometimes are exposed to,
such as grave worship,
such as thinking that something has power, you know, I tie something on your arm, and I feel a sense of protection from it.
among others, and there is a hidden ship. The Shadow covers back most of us are exposed to now what is the meaning of sharecroppers that me we in a way worship means, for example, if we talk about something that Allah tala does this, and Allah is the only one and Allah is the only one and if somebody says but
that but is a bunch of shark, that shark butting in into the fleet.
Share, this is very, you're right, you're right, but we need money.
That's a sum of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, how much money did he have to propagate his his message? Allah subhanaw taala deprived him from all the above made him an orphan.
So he had no great connections. That's what we use, medium poor, so he couldn't boast of wealth, although he was given that choice that the angels game that we can make the mountains of Tahoma into gold and silver and rubies and he says, No, I will be up then. rasuu not a king and also to give us that example, Allah subhanaw taala made him unlettered today we take pride and I'm a PhD I cut those Barb's to show you that ASVAB only works to the extent that Allah subhanaw taala wants them to do. Should we use the ASVAB? Of course, but we should have the proper perspective. I have done this, because I'm commanded to do this. I study for the exam, because that's my duty. But I don't rely on
my studying. I go to earn a living, because that's my duty. What I get from it? Is the decision from I make effort in my Deen, will it make me a Mottaki may not. That's from a last panel. So there is no contradiction between using a spa and having tobacco dependence on loss mountain and knowing that all results come from a loss
is the realm of the slave. The results are in the realm of the master. Okay, there is no contradiction we have to do those. But in our hearts, we should know that my effort is not going to produce the results. But I still make the best effort.
That's what I'm asked to do.
So shark of means we should be careful off. Then we have
another form of shark which is called Ria. Everybody knows what Ria is ostentation wanting to be seen.
And this is especially dangerous for people who are in this position talking to you.
Now you come here.
I can reasonably assume that you have a class
sincerity and purity why why else are you sitting here? You're not gaining Anything else? You are here for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Can I say the same for myself?
Because I don't know within myself, if there is something in my knifes that likes me to be seen and heard and praised.
And the danger of this is that we never know our level of class ourselves. And we can never find out till it's too late. Because only Allah knows. And when will we know if our actions had if last is when we meet.
So this is a very dangerous it's a very slippery slope for people who are making this and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect all of those who are trying to serve this Dean and give them a class give me plus, but this is where shaitaan comes in. Because human beings like to be recognized like to be praised.
Like to be heard. So, Maria and someone wanting to be heard and wanting to be seen ostentation, you know people will say good things about
Then we have nifa Nicholas nifa is hypocrisy opposite of effortless
and nifa as we know as the hypocrites who claim something from the outside, but in the core they will rot inside.
Okay, outside is showing something else inside the ship is something else.
And the opposite of that is a class which comes from Harless, which you're using or do means what pure, what you see outside, you cut through it. In the inside, you'll find the same thing.
That's a plus.
But if you cut through the apple and inside is rotten, that's a problem. And also the loss of lalani cillum gave us characteristics of this sniffer. And there are of course nifa of of the aqeedah which is the ultimate of nefab where they were they didn't really believe and they said that they believed and there is nothing in our actions hypocrisy and the signs of that are watched and again, this is part of our learning.
Yesterday in the Juma football we mentioned to two or three qualities of a Manasa he comes to salah and stands. amo kusa, laziale means Oh, it started come for brother come for Salah. Yeah. And then you get up like it's a burden. That's a sign of nifa.
And when he remembers Allah, la escuela en la Illa, kalila, he remembers a la little and again, like I stressed, it's not like a person who doesn't remember Allah, but remembers and infrequently a little, this is a sign of hypocrisy. Then in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he says the signs of, of the actions of a hypocrite.
When he speaks, he lies.
Lying is a trait of immunity. That's why a believer cannot lie.
When he is trusted,
matamanoa and when he's trusted with a manner, he does a piano, he betrays the trust.
somebody tells you something private about them. And next day, the whole city knows about it. betrayal of trust sign of malarkey.
When he makes a while
he makes a promise. He breaks his promise his brother, I will see you tomorrow at 11
doesn't show up till 1130 or worse, still shows up at two o'clock or doesn't show up at all, you know, said Well, our plumbers are like that. They say they're coming tomorrow, they don't show up for a month, I have to look at myself.
punctuality when you say tell somebody you know 11 o'clock, what does it mean?
11 o'clock. That's what our chef keeps reminding us.
If we take care of the little things, punctuality is that if somebody says something, I will do this for you either either say that Look, I don't have the capacity to do this, I cannot do it. There is no harm in that. But if somebody makes a promise,
you should not break it. Okay.
And another characteristic is whenever a monastic is in a different hobbies, this other variation comes in, when they get into an argument they become abusive and loud.
Now, when we get into arguments, then you become personal, and you raise your voices, and so on and so forth. And then even worse, start using foul words. These are all characteristics of a hypocrite. So again, we need to see at times do I have these characteristics.
The next one, the next of the model, and the disease of the heart is gibberish. gibberish, loosely translated as arrogance means I look down on people. I feel I am superior
Rasulullah sallallahu. I'm only going to mention one Hadith about this, which should be sufficient for all of us. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that anyone who has a verla
in atom or
neutrino in the smallest of particles of kibber will not enter john
This is very, very serious. Because Kibriya in another Hadith, he said is the government of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala says
that whoever tries to grab my government I will put him in the hellfire.
Only Allah deserves that.
Allah subhanaw taala
if you make a human being with a copy of his look down on when you look alive, Mata Kabir is looked up to because he deserves because he is who he is. So that's the reality. If I have gibberish, I really am not what I think I am. Okay.
And the opposite of that, of course is humility, and tada that we should
make a correct assessment of who we truly
some of the related diseases whyalla, which is boastfulness, talking about, you know, I have this and this and a lot of us do that, either with the tongue or by our actions, I want to show people what I have achieved where I have arrived in the way I move in the way I live and so on so forth in the way I I celebrate things, excesses and excesses and excesses. I mean, somebody was telling me that
the son of one of the
you know, I think it's called Sahar or somebody got married in Lucknow a few years ago. And, you know, they had on the guest list, more than 100,000 people, there were jets to bring people in and the amount of money that was why this is boastfulness, trying to show people who you are. So again, we should be humbling that a GB is vanity and pride. It is also a form of conceit in that is, you know, I think of myself in a way that I'm impressed with myself. I shall,
and then we have what is called a rule which essentially is deception in the sense that I'm deceiving myself by assessing who I truly am above what I am okay.
judging myself by a standard that elevates me from who I am.
Then there are several of these diseases which come from the root of what we call Hubbard, Jr. in excessive and satiated love, for the things of the dunya
among which is a hazard or envy, the dangerous kind of envy, that somebody has something I wish I have it and I hope he If I can't have it, he should lose it.
He should come down to my level this is a
Why is it so major? Because it is if you look at the reality you break it down, it is dissatisfaction with the corner of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah decided to give somebody more and give you a little less you are dissatisfied with his judgment. This is the same as who was dissatisfied with Allah's decision. shavon
said how can I bow down to him?
You created him from clay, an academy I'm better than him.
created me from fire and him from that assessing not knowing what the reality is. Okay, looking at the surface, his argument is correct. Fire is clean and pure, logically, mud, stinking clay mud, I should be better than him.
But because he's only looking at the surface, he's not looking at what is behind that. But Allah swana has breathed
into this and that's what ennobles Okay, so
haselden envy. Similarly, we have a health, which is greed, wanting and wanting and wanting never having enough.
And if we have been the next diseases called
stinginess, Allah has given me but because of my hope for the dunya my love for this dunya I don't want to do I don't want to give it away.
Unless one Allah has given you so that you may be the means to deliver it to others and
In that process Allah will give you more and Allah will give you more in the dunya and in the after those who have experienced it who have given and this is just an aside, I will give you a hint, which is experiential, anytime you are in difficulty, financial or otherwise,
give to the poor. So, when I have a lot it makes sense to give, when I don't have Why should I give a How can I give, give them an you will see the result of
okay works in the opposite direction, because Allah if you're giving sincerely will increase it for you. Okay. So, this is not a trait of a believer.
Again for the same reason, because he knows that it is from Allah subhanaw taala. And my holding is is not going to increase it
by giving, I will increase
that to dangerous wolves, horrible mal booja. Again, similar, some of them have overlapping things, the excessive love for wealth, and the excessive love for being recognized for position, you know, that's what it is, all of what we call dunia, it can be summarized into these two things.
wealth and power,
the rich and the famous,
then what is worse power, because people have money.
But they don't have control over others when you have power.
As you know, people who get into high positions will also automatically get wealth one way or the other. But they have power over others and seldom has compared this to this is as inimical to the heart as to hungry wolves being led into a pen of sheep, the amount of damage they will do in that among the sheep to hungry wolves. The love of these two things will do more harm to our hearts to our Guru.
We already talked about treason, then there is something called hepco which means malice towards wanting bad for others, you know, harming others. inshallah, hopefully, most of us all of us do not have that. But at moments we can because if you feel wronged, rightfully or wrongfully you feel somebody has wronged you. Sometimes the automatic reaction is to harm the others.
And what does the last minute Allah says about somebody who does wrong to you?
Lie yesterday, Hasina. Wanna say, Good and Evil are not equal. Then what does he say? repel?
It fabula. arson, repel evil. With good, it's easy to do evil for evil.
And you are we have the law of passing cases where somebody gives you one slap, you can give him one slap back. That's even but not more than that in number or intensity. But if you repel it with good, and this is the whole life of Rasulullah sallallahu.
The man comes, Badu comes grabs Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam by his by his shirt and twisted, so that marks form on his normal neck from that tight garment. He says, Yeah, Muhammad give me from what Allah has given you just look at the way he addresses
and the Sahaba around, they're ready to draw their soldiers in
Rasulullah sallallahu asks what he has, is it give it to him?
Have I given you enough? He says No. Of course not.
They're ready again to draw their swords, their beard, this man. He says he takes him in his house, takes him in his house and gives him and gives him and gives him he says are you satisfied now? said yes, I am satisfied. You are the most generous. You say can you go outside and say that in front of my companions
so that they may not have ill feelings about you?
He brings him out. He said Are you satisfied? He says I am satisfied. You are the most generous.
Then the companions have a good feeling. He's even concerned about how his companions would because if he left Having said that, you know you are this. This is how he repelled evil and is we should read his car because that's what we have to internalize an act a law of Rasulullah sallallahu there are so many times so many things of abuse
and things like you know the story of
raschi you know, he caused more harm and grief to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam than anyone else. When he killed his beloved uncle Hamza rhodiola Han.
He was one of the few people on whom Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam at the time of Fatah maca had given a death sentence that whoever finds Rashi can slaughter him or should slaughter.
And then when she finds out
and he covers his face and comes to Medina in front of Rasulullah, salallahu alaihe salam, and sits right in front of him and says, a shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah Subhan Allah Karasu, you are I bear witness. Then he takes off his mama from his face and his companion. So this is why she under draw the sword and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said no. Now he's from among your brothers. He has taken the Shahada. But then he asked to tell me how you killed my my uncle. He says, you know I am, you know one of those who fights with deception. I had I'm not brave enough to face Hamza. So I waited for my opportunity. And I saw him just going through the enemy lines in. And I waited and I waited
till a moment came when he was not seeing me. And he looked vulnerable. And I am an expert, spears man, I threw my spear.
And then he did what he did with him. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam started after all these years, almost seven years later, he started weeping and weeping and weeping and weeping because he was so affected by it. And then what did he say? He said, I don't want you to sit in front of me. Because when I see your face, it reminds me of my uncle. And in a weak moment, I might make da against you.
This is how you repel. This is our soul salons. How can you not love
Should the tool avoid
excessive uncontrolled anger?
a trait that many of us have sometimes runs in the family.
Okay, anger, anger, anger, everything happens you just blow an anger is from one component came to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and said
give me know see how you're also nice. A lot of them. Do not get angry. So give me some more advices lot of don't get every time he asked that response was Don't get angry.
Because when you get angry, what happens? You are
like a fire. Why? Because you get hot and you get dread, isn't it? And what happens when you get angry you rise? So what is it that you know? That gets red, red and hot and rises?
Fire and who's made from fire? shade on? That's why Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam gives us a simple
recipe for controlling anger. Number one, say what are all the wilhemina shape on a regime. If that doesn't control it to watch, throw water on the fire go do
that doesn't control it. Sit down, don't be standing, and so on so forth. There's simple things. But we have to work on this because when you get angry, whether it's at somebody, whether it's at your spouse, whether it's your children,
nothing productive comes out of it because you may say and do things that you regret later. How many times has it happened to people who when they got angry said something and they regretted it later
1000s of times May Allah protect us.
This is not a character. This is a trade that Allah has given us. So we are not here is not to eliminate anger. You cannot eliminate anger.
You have to direct the anger correctly. When you see Allah subhanaw taala as borders being violated, you should feel angry.
If you feel nothing then remember that Hadith we just talked about. So this anger is an important part of us but it has to be correctly directed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
has been reported never to get angry for a personal reason. No matter what
What they call them, no matter what they did to him, no matter what they threw on him, he never got angry. When did he get angry when would he get read sometimes, and his vein would would swell up here, when allow us orders have been violated.
So, we have to learn to direct our anger
lack of higher
lack of modesty,
lack of higher as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam defined higher, as he says every,
every nation has a defining characteristic.
And the defining characteristic of my oma is a higher This is the defining characteristic.
He says everything that HIA enters it beautifies it.
So when we have higher higher itself is beautiful.
whatever. If you have higher, you have higher,
higher that modesty, that thing gives you higher, which means life. And if you don't have higher, it's the opposite is you don't have you're living like an animal. And he says someone who doesn't have hire, let him do whatever he wants. Why? Because there are no restraints. Hire looks beautiful on our brothers in their actions, and it looks even more beautiful on our sisters. Okay, higher modesty, not in your face, not this, you know, aggressive to the teacher, you should be aggressive, and you should be this and you should be loud and you should be. Now
you say what you have to do? gently, softly. That's all you have to do.
Juggling cowardice. And I'm not going to go into the details of that hangman rum,
uncontrolled anxiety and depression. Why is this a disease because again, it reflects on the weakness of the heat within us. Because we have not understood the father and quarter of Allah subhanaw taala that this what Allah subhanaw taala meant for you will come to you Nobody can stop it. And what he has not given you, nobody can bring it to you. And this has been explained in many Hadith of the profits are largely from the famous case of kidnap basler. Viola when you were sitting in the back of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam again in the cat on the camel, and also Allah sallallahu Sallam has this little boy, his first cousin actually sitting there but he's a little boy. And he
says your little boy, should I teach you something he is writing. But he uses also Allah sallallahu sallam, he is the best of teachers. He uses this as a teaching moment.
And in that long Hadith, he describes this death remember,
whatever passes you was not meant to hit you, and whatever hits you or comes to you was not meant the pens have been lifted, and the scrolls have dried. This is uncover of Allah subhanaw taala. If you know that, if you understand that truly and internalize that it removes anxiety, because this is what Allah has ordered. Why should I be anxious for life? Why should I be depressed? There may be biochemical reasons which is different. But most of us don't have that. It comes from not from this uncertainty,
of not knowing what Allah, Allah
and that his mother and father will overtake us.
And then we have the diseases of our Shahada, the Lord force, you know, wanting this and wanting that uncontrolled things.
And the diseases, so, these are our lowly desires and the diseases of shughart which is doubts, which then come in our upgraded belief systems, which is an internal thing, that everything we have doubts, you know, this is there really a day of judgment?
Is it real?
Is it going to happen? Is that a creator? Is this this is for and truly the unadulterated preserved words of Allah subhanaw taala or was it written by somebody else? This Muslim sometimes talk about this? Are these the words of Rasulullah Salah is this meant these shewhart these doubts and the opposite of doubt, is a clean
certainty, certainty. That's what we, we strive for.
There are several other things which you know,
laziness is a disease. So I've sort of tried to summarize some of these disease states of the heart without going into detail because there are more than 20 of them. If I spent three minutes on each, it would take my whole hour. But again, this is meant to be just a sort of reminder, so that you can go and learn more about these and if you find some of these characteristics, and again, we said we have to honestly look within ourselves. If I have some of these, then there is a solution. This is not just for identification. There are solutions in our Dean because our Dean has the answer to all the problems. Aloma UK multiple accom Dena calm this day, we have perfected your deen you don't need
to go anywhere else. You have no Quran and Sunnah it will answer all your things. So if you have a particular disease of particular trait of these things, then you go to a person of knowledge, a practitioner, not just a person of knowledge of information, and say, I find this within myself.
Give me a formula to overcome it. Just like you go to a specialist. We have specialists, Allah subhanaw taala out of his mercy has put specialists in our in our oma who can treat these spiritual diseases. These are diseases of the heart, the moment you feel slight chest pain and pressure we run to the cardiologist because we are so concerned about
coronary heart rate, Heart Heart disease that I'm going to die, but that's the worst that can happen right? You drop dead.
If you die with any of these umodel
it doesn't end with that death would have been a mercy. Because the people in janome
are going to say yeah, Malik to the keeper of Jannah. ask Allah to give us death. So we may be relieved of this. So we these are more serious diseases, we need to see a spiritual cardiologist to remove these things from us. So look, make a list.
Write down, I like to take notes of you know, if you see something about yourself, write it down document, you know, I have dislike many of the people who come to the doctor's You know, sometimes patients come with type pages, seven pages, every symptom that you can imagine is there. My general rule when I say that is I know this patient has nothing wrong with them. But if you're honest,
if you're on because they've been on the internet surfing and that you can find every symptom, and then the imagination, but here
we have to write down and seek solutions for them.
I'm going to start I still have about five minutes on the next part of this
skier, which is I've called the fruits of the skier, the benefits you are going to see from this process.
And the greatest is what we call what I will call as the actualization of the heat. And if you get that in your heart, and if I get that in my heart that will change our being completely
what does that mean is to recognize a loss of Hannah Paula truly as what he is and who he is. And that will give us an understanding of what we talked about the color and color the destiny of Allah Spano tala, the wisdom of loss, one color, why certain things happen?
And what that does is it helps us react properly to the trials and tribulations, which is the name of this dunya
See, many of us want this dunya to be perfect. What is the definition of perfect means general
is just meant to be a general No, it is a place of trial and tribulation. But there is even a gender in this dunya and some of the scholars have said the one who does not enter the gender of this dunya will not enter the gender of the author. And the general of that dunya is to feel that that intimacy with a loss
to feel connected to Allah subhanaw taala what that gives you of pleasure is like being in paradise.
And if we achieve that, then you are going to enter general. But again, going back to this is a place of trials and tribulation and storms that come in your life, many different ways.
test you with wealth. He tests you with poverty. Most people who are given wealth as a trial, don't consider it a test.
Because they only consider poverty as a test. But it's a trial on last month Allah mentions in the Quran some we give more to test what they do with it. Do they show gratitude? Do they use it in the right way? Do they use their money to buy the judges and produce corruption? Okay.
I just wanted to mention that he mentions about
what we call Safar ish.
The one who's been given less, who is below the poverty level, that's a test. What does he do to remove that? Does he do suffer? Does he try his best in halaal ways
to earn that?
The one who's been given health, he doesn't think that this is a trial. It's only when the sickness comes, then we think it's a trial. But health itself is a trial to see how you use your health. Your youth is a trial Allah gives you strength. Yesterday, I was talking to a 17 year old because at 17 what do we think treat our children today as well? He's just a child. When he's 25, what do we say? He's my baby?
Because he's the youngest. My wife and I and my wife always calls my youngest is the baby in the family.
rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on his deathbed, some of my buddies
in the pangs of death.
And he's sending out the biggest army that has gone out of the Muslims against to the superpower, the Romans.
And who does he make in charge the general of this army, an 18 year old who is called the Beloved of the of the Beloved.
Osama bin Zayed son of the Beloved.
The son of zayde, who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called his adopted son. His son is 18 years old, in that army of people like Amara are the major companions. 18 year old leading the army. Every time he wakes up from his from a stupor of death, he says has Osama left with the army has Osama left with the army and people are doubting there is in the army itself. There is no why's he made this young unexperienced boy. As a general.
There are three things just an aside. There are three things that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam stressed in the last moments of his life.
One was this he kept asking about the army of Osama Osama bin Zayed. The other thing most of you know Asana, Asana, Asana
And the third thing that he kept saying was and be kind and give the rights of the slaves
of the slaves.
You know, these three things this is this is the Jameel column that he was given, you know the few words these three things summarize your entire Dean.
The army of Osama bin Zayed was being sent out to preserve Islam to protect Islam.
Salah fullfilling represents the head of what fulfills the right your vertical connection with Allah subhanaw taala that if you guard your Salah, you will be the last one to learn everything else. And the third thing if you take care of the slaves and give them the rights, obviously you will give the rights of everybody above that.
You're dealing with people you're dealing with Allah and preserving your deen three instructions in which the whole thing can be summarized.
Then came to Medina through a 19 year old.
Anybody know his name?
When we had the people from Medina come to her generosity, Islam was not spreading Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to go from camp to camp. In one year there was a group of people who listen to his message he said you also we accept. We want you to come to Medina.
send us somebody who will teach us then takes a 20 year old most of the male or the Alon Center, the only chance of spreading the he sends a young young lad
because this Dean spread
Because of youth, young people, energize people, so youth is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala that has to be used. And we shouldn't pamper them and say, oh this child said little child, okay.
When this star seed comes into our hearts, we develop what is called a hub for Allah subhanaw taala hub is the ultimate love. And if we love Allah subhanaw taala. And that's the only way because we know who he is.
Then we love everything that he loves. And who does he love the most?
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
then we would have loved for a sort of loss of love for everything of about him. You love to hear about him. You love to read about him. You want to spend time with him. We cannot spend time yesterday you reminded the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that I would love to see my brothers
said yeah, the companions are Yasuda and we are brothers. No You are my companions. My brothers are those who will come after me who have not seen me but will bring him on on.
Okay, so we want to hear about him we want to when when we talk about Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam.
So today there is extremes people say well I don't accept heavy. I only believe in the Quran. This is the level of Cofer itself. You know, when one of the four great imams who's best known for this thing is Imam Malik, Nima of Medina. People used to come to his house.
People used to come to his house with questions. And his maid servant would go and find out what they were looking for. And he would say call them and sit every time somebody came.
Because they wanted to hear a heavy
the great Imam would go take a whistle, put on his best clothes, and then come out.
And so he was asked about it. He said because I'm going to be reciting the words of my beloved. This is my other with him. There is a narration one time he was taking a class about heavy about the words of Rasulullah sallallahu This is how you honor them this is the other and there was saw him sweating and his face was read as if he was in great pain.
But the class continued to its conclusion than some of his clothes as help came, said yeah, man, you look like you are in distress. So he said why don't you raise my shirt so there is this shirt from behind? There were there was a scorpion that had bitten all over his back. He was in great pain so why didn't you say something? He said How could I stop when I'm talking about the words of Rasulullah
that's why last month Allah gave them the macom the station's that they had
love for a soul muscle and there is we cannot make any progress if we don't have love for rasulillah and it's not just a word. If you love Allah
Subhan Allah what is the condition for Rooney your baby kumala then follow me in everything in the external
and the internal some external sooner look like him look like him
and the internal Some even more
then what will happen here baby common law certificate has been given then a law will love you. If a law loves Zoo cases clause nothing more. Nothing more.
If somebody becomes the Beloved of Allah can there be a higher macom than that? No.
So we should love everything about
rasulillah some ways
you can only love someone that you know if we know nothing about him. How can you love him?
You need to know exactly what he was in his house. You need to know exactly how he was in the war. You need to know how exactly he was in Mecca. How is in Medina how he slept. Everything he did how he ate.
He sat like a slave. He never reclined not besides that because one sister has
I just this is an aside, there is other of learning also. Now last month Allah bless the sister she's sitting on the floor
the true love of learning
is to sit on the floor with him and nearness. So I would suggest for future when we have this and we all growing, whoever can and of course you know, then there is room for people who have, who are elderly who have got knee problem back problem, you can sit in the chair it's not, but the humility that comes from nearness and sitting on the floor and sitting as close to whoever's teaching you. It has an effect.
So try and do that as much as you can. And if you can, yes, you can sit. It's not. It's not my crew, but you're looking for something more.
This is how the companions learned. Because being closer to the ground,
is more humble. And this is part of the other of learning.
That's why we are closest to Allah Allah is above, but we are closest to him. When we are the lowest in such
One when Allah smart Allah hub and all comes to Allah Samantha does not reveal Himself to us in this dunya because our hearts cannot take it.
Hearts cannot take it unless Montana centered the jelly on the mountain.
evaporated masala Islam gone.
Okay, one bed but two came to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said Yama have done this, this this this this?
Will Allah forgive me if I accept Islam? He said yes.
He said a shadow.
He accepted Islam. After a while he said he
said you're a pseudo law. No, he said you're a pseudo law.
When I was doing all of these evil acts, was Allah watching me
Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam said yes,
he held his chest said Allah was watching me and he expired, right?
Because that reality came that Allah was watching me when I did all of this. Of course, he would go straight to gender because he is now sinless, having taken the Shahada and then die.
To sometimes our hearts that have been purified cannot take it. There is a narration about in the old days about a caravan, you know, for Hajj. The caravans used to go from Egypt. And in this caravan was an elderly blind woman called woman bent over could hardly walk. And it's a long journey from Egypt, to Mecca.
And her dream was
to see she couldn't see but to feel by. Every time the caravan was stopped, she would ask Have we reached the Baitullah have reached the battle, and people got fed up with that because every time it stopped, she would go on about it. So they decided not to tell her when they finally got to Makkah. They took her
and they took her hands and they put it on the wall of the curb.
And they said yeah shefa had that Baitullah. This is the bait of Allah. She said her the Baitullah she grabbed it
died right? The heart couldn't take it love, love for the bite of Allah because of the love of Allah.
So May Allah subhanaw taala inspire us and put his love in our hearts. And this will come in Sharla as one of the fruits and byproducts of the process of Ischia. inshallah, we'll take a break here, and then we will reconvene in about 10 to 15 minutes and talk a little bit about Allah Subhana Allah
