Fill out I'm Allah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah shall filmbay will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam does v 100 for my bad Oh my dear brothers and sisters in our session on the schedule knifes
let us focus on
the most important element of the sphere, which is to fill our hearts with the Hachette of Allah.
Now what is
Hachette is different from hope. Hope is fear. Hershey, it is not fear because fear is a negative emotion that produces hatred. Nobody likes or loves somebody they fear or something they fear.
They hate that thing. They hate that individual there that person they want to get away from them.
Whereas about the believers,
about the momineen about those levain Allah subhanaw taala said well levena Mano, a shadow Allah. Allah said and the believers
love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anyone or anything else.
So harsh yet is actually is something that increases with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala like taqwa.
So what is Hershey? Hershey, it is
a feeling which is similar to fear, but different from it. Just as excitement is similar to fear, but different from it.
Fear by itself is something which produces which is a result of expecting a bad ending.
You hear a tiger you hear a snake you hear a lion, because
you think that that thing is going to kill you.
Right? Do you that's why that's why you feel it. Because what it produces in you that sense of that sense that emotion, and those feelings
it produces, because you expect about anything.
But see what people for example, who are not for a moment, recommending these, frankly, what I call what I considered very stupid activities, but we will do them. take somebody who does bungee jumping, for example. Now what so
you know, great about tying yourself up by an ankle and throwing yourself off a cliff. But anyway, people who are doing buget bungee jumping people who are on a roller coaster.
They also have fear, they have the other screams of fear. But that fear is producing happiness because at the end of that, that's what's excitement. Excitement is fear, which expects a good ending, whereas fear or terror is fear which expects a bad ending.
So Hershey, it is
fear which is the outcome of love of Allah subhanaw taala. And love happens because we focus and we learn and we understand the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada
His gelar His Jamal is hoodrat is what is stuck at the visit.
And we relate to that, in terms of how we have received that and how we are grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for that.
So Hershey's is a combination of sugar and the author and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala. The is of Allah.
These two together, produce, crush it in the heart.
And that's what was said, in the miax Allah minibar de la Allah. Allah last round that I said which means that Verily,
those who have the greatest Hachette of Allah in their hearts are the automa
What does it mean? It means that, according to Allah subhanaw taala in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala and Eileen are true Eileen is not somebody with a PhD in Islamic sciences. It is not somebody who was written a lot of books, it is not somebody who teaches in a great university. It's not somebody who was qualified from this dark room or that jamea it is somebody who has the Associate of Allah in his heart.
That person is an island because that person understands the essence of knowledge.
Have I ever been humble? Right? All right Allah, the great jurist, the gritty man, he had a friend in his time a contemporary of his called Bishop, Vishal haffi.
And him I used to call Vishal Avi,
my chef used to say is to call him Azure mouse.
So one day somebody asked him, they said to him dessert, why is it that you call Vishal Javi, your chef,
when he does not know, as much as these, as you know.
Now, on a side note, I'll come back to the story. What was
his standard of knowing how this
somebody asked him this question they said,
according to you,
how many Hades
should a person have memorized should a person know before he can? Before he has the authority or the right to extract a haka?
What is the mandala calm? How many hobbies should a person know? They asked you this question. He did not answer him say anything.
Now this man who asked him This question was a persistent kind of check.
So see where he starts? He does not say Is it enough to note and are these Is it enough to know 100? I had these note. He says, Is it enough to know 10,000? I had this
10,000 I had these here, memorized.
Now you might say Why must I memorize it? Because today we live in a world of technology. You say Why must I memorize it? I mean, after all, in my phone, I have all the CSS all the tabs of Hades.
I have, you know several translations of the Koran
and so on and so on. So I have today technology enabled us to instantaneously access
all these things without a problem so why must I memorize it?
And the reason why was memorize it. That is because despite all the search engines, despite all the
all the data mining and
that we can do,
the brain still
retains the maximum and best ability
to compare things with each other in order to come out with a decision that is the best applicable for that question.
So our classical scholars have always held memorization of the Quran and memorization of Hadees to be central
to the ability of extracting rulings on mosyle of work.
So to come back to the story, the man asked about Mohammed remobilized Allah, he asked him, he said, Is it enough to memorize 10 or 10,000? Or Hadees?
The man said now see jizya his progression, how he builds.
So he says,
What about 20,000? Ma? He said, No, he said 30 is a no, he said 40 5060 7080 9100 120 120,000 are these
email? Maybe they did not say 100,000 maybe.
Now, for somebody with that stringent. And that high standard
of knowing I had this
having memorized I had these amroha memorizing IDs
with these scholars was not a matter of simply saying this in in Hades. This is what is mentioned that No. He's talking about the whole chain of an array of narratives and all the oil which comes with it, and so on and so forth.
So for somebody with such a high standard,
the people living with the question the man asked was that somebody you have that kind of a standard, and you are calling Michelle happy? You're sad.
Allah said, that is because Vishal has the essence of knowledge. He has a know of knowledge. What is that hotshot Allah? He said he's a man with question.
And this Akasha is the essence of knowledge.
So I want to remind myself when you are that is why we are having these classes in Islam. knowledge has never been divined as information.
I've said this before in many lectures, but let me say it here because it's all in the if this isn't the right place to say,
please differentiate in your mind between information and knowledge,
information and before data before information becomes data. So data is random bits and pieces of you know what happened and who said what is what is.
This data when it is organized,
becomes what is called information.
Now, this information is what we get
when we study something, and this is across the board, no matter what it is, whether you're studying carpentry, or whether you're studying the Quran, or whether you're studying had these, whether you try studying, whatever you're studying,
what any teacher can teach you in a school in a college and a mother's room in a university in Nigeria, what do you get out of reading a book or watching a video or any of these means
is all only information.
So, what is knowledge?
Knowledge is when you take this information and you apply the information on yourself and you have an experience.
And from this experience, you extract a learning
conceptualization of the experience that is in is actually knowledge. That cannot be any knowledge without practicing that information.
They cannot be any knowledge without practicing the information. Knowledge is the outcome of practice.
Until you practice it is information. Should you get information, of course, otherwise, how do you practice. So we need information, but to consider information to be knowledge
to call somebody who studied something
and graduated and you call him an ID. He's not an alum.
He is not an alum.
an alum is one who has practiced that information.
And this is one of the many problems that we have created and we suffer from which is that we give people the wrong impression that they are that they are they are scholars
they just have information
out of them among them those who practice that information.
They are the ones who have knowledge. And if anyone has the right to be called a alum, it is that person.
Now the reason I'm saying this to you is not so that you can point fingers at others, but to look at yourself.
And that's the reason this is a great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because point is
that if you really want to get close to Allah subhanaw taala it can come only through practice.
And to practice we don't need to have an enormous amount of information it is not necessary that you should have studied 200 books in order to practice.
Just one line is just one word is enough.
For example, as I mentioned before, many times too many people, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah
desired game with relation to
Allah said does he not know that Allah is watching?
Just one line? Lm yada yada yada.
I imagine a person who internalizes this,
who takes he knows nothing else hypothetical hypothetically speaking, you know, the thing is, he only knows is one I love you I love you and the lawyer and he says to himself that this is this I am have come under any circumstances but this is Allah subhanaw taala asking me this question.
This idea is for me, and that's the way to look at the Torah.
This dinner the notion of this is the reason why this ad was sent was because Allah is talking to me. And Allah is asking me Don't you know that Allah is watching
and the person internalizes this
what do you see that person will do? That person will be conscious of Allah Serrano tell us presence in his life. 24 seven every waking moment
that person is conscious of almost vanished and has presence in his life. To commit a sin will become impossible for this person. This person will constantly be in a state of turmoil.
this person's heart will be completely free from all fears,
from all worries from all concerns, he will he or she will only be concerned about the greatness and glory of Allah.
And as a result of that,
this person will have two things, he will have Taqwa and he will have to occur.
What is the what the what is to be constantly concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala in everything that we say and we do,
constantly be concerned about the pleasure of Allah?
is Allah please read me?
What is the sign that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with me?
Everything I say or do I will put on this framework?
before I do anything, not after, before I do something, I will check this framework to say if I do this will allow me pleased. If the answer is an absolutely certain Yes, then I will do it. If the answer is an absolutely certain No, then I will not do it. If the answer is doubtful, I'm not sure that I will not do it until I clarify.
This is that we're
constantly the person is in a state of
awareness of Allah subhanaw taala in his life, and all his decisions, all his speech, all his actions are colored by that aren't affected by that.
And the second thing that happens to that person with this Hachette in his heart
where the person because he is aware of the glory and majesty of Allah Delgado. And because of his concern is his connection with Allah Serrano that
this correction drives out, every fear, every anxiety, every worry, every depression,
every Lord, from his heart, his heart becomes light.
His heart becomes light,
light in wet, and light in illumination, his heart becomes illuminated, and illuminating.
So this person now
has the eye socket because he's aware of Allah subhanaw taala he knows Allah subhana wa mokuba Macondo. He is with you wherever you are.
Live, Allah is with me, then who do I need to fear? If Allah is with me, then whose health Do I need to seek?
If Allah is with me,
then the only concern I have is, is Allah please with me.
It was this state of being the state of the heart which is filled with only the flesh of Allah nothing else that allow revival is Allah when he is trussed up and put into the cup of the trebuchet to be cast into the fire.
This feeling this question is what caused the driver is around to sit there with complete and total equanimity?
No worry, no panic.
It's not that he didn't know what will happen if you if you if you fall into the fire.
He was the one sitting there in front of that fire.
But in you, Lana, if you are my llama,
no benefit can happen to me without the
wish and will Allah and no harm can befall me without the will and wish of Allah subhanaw taala.
Neither benefit nor harm can touch me.
unless Allah Subhana Allah wills it to be so.
as far as the will of Allah is concerned, what is thy will? My will is the will of my Rob delegate.
How do I define benefit? That which pleases Allah? How do I define harm? That with displeases Allah
so when jabril Islam came to him and he said can I help you? He said, No.
What can I do for you? Is there nothing?
I don't ask you. I asked Allah.
And then when Deborah Islam came back to him after having gone to Allah subhanaw taala and
begged Allah subhanho wa Taala and requested Allah subhanaw taala to save you right Melissa Robin Of course I lost all of this. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who sent him the first time and sent him the second time.
When he came back with the Hong Kong of Allah subhanho wa Taala and said your Rob wants to know what do you want from him?
So now you are not saying let me know what can I do for you is your Rob wants to know what do you want from him? Even I will as Rob said, My Rob does not need to ask that.
He already knows what I want from him. And what do I want from him? I want from him whatever he wants from me.
If you want me to burn, I am ready to burn if you want to save he has the power to save me.
Right? You didn't do this I'm explained to you.
This is the result of a shot in the heart.
The goal of the skier is to fill our hearts with Russia.
This is a lifelong thing.
There's no arrived state.
This is something that goes up and down.
What strengthens the skier is obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala please understand this obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala has an effect on the heart, disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala also has an effect on the heart.
You're not free from the effect on the heart, either when we obey Allah or when we disobey Allah.
We know that this episode, where he said that every time a person commits a sin, a black mark is put on his heart.
And if you've got any mix Toby and his differ, this mark is removed.
His heart becomes clean again.
But if he does not make his the bar and he continues to give it zero over and over again, then the marks of the sin are placed on his heart until the day comes when his whole heart is completely covered
and is incapable of reflecting
he died reflecting the glory and nurofen was vanity.
And that's the reason why we need to make is the fight on tober very often we know that these wrestlers wrestlers that I make is the word 70 times a day there's our said sometimes we count to 100 that he was making supper
Why do you make us apart because of Shatila.
I said, when the person is aware of Allah subhanho data, he will not commit a sin. But we are human beings. So sometimes we lose awareness. Sometimes we forget about flow.
So, then what happens then immediately as soon as we remember,
we make stuff
we apologize to Allah subhanaw taala we are contrite, we are regretful
and we correct ourselves.
If we were doing something which we should not be doing, we stop that and vice versa and if you have to make a compass if you have to compensate somebody for whatever wrong action we did we do that we make sure that our account is clear with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So hersha therefore is also a great shield of protection and it is the armor
which keeps us protected from shaitan.
How do you get Sahaja as I mentioned, one, by focusing on the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And to by focusing on the near mat on the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala
this morning I was
speaking to a dear friend of mine, who has just been diagnosed with general dystonia. This is a neurological condition which has no reason and as on date, it has no cure.
But of course I remind myself when you that also, as a surgeon said that every disease every ailment has a cure with Allah.
So when we say it has no cure, we don't mean it has no cure, we mean that we don't know that cure yet.
So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to reveal this cure so that this condition can be cured. But what it does is basically,
General dystonia it can be specific to a particular limb or it can be general which means the whole body
The person loses control of their muscles.
So if I want to lift by hand, I'm able to lift it, it's not paralysis, but it's in some ways it resembles that.
Sometimes the hand will move on its own it will do something will turn and twist in some way, and so on so forth. So you're not able to
manage manipulate your answer. If it affects the legs, you can walk, General dystonia. And
what it does not affect is the vital organs, which means your heart will still breathe a bit and your digestive system will still work, and so on, so forth. So it doesn't kill you. It just makes you incapable of functioning normally.
if you are watching this video, and Alhamdulillah your hands and feet work.
For the elderly, people are my age and more. Maybe they work with little bit of pain, but they work.
What must we do? We was fall in sudo. And thank Allah Van odorants Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Yara, you did not give me this ailment. It is something it is not hereditary. It is not an infection. It can happen to anybody, for any reason.
without any reason, not without any.
Now, it could happen to me, it could happen to you.
How much would we thank Allah
and magdoff for those who have it, and Allah subhanaw taala should cure them completely and totally and should reveal this cure so that they do not have this ailment. There's another one whose name I have forgotten but another neurological illness which were suddenly it's close to it's almost like epilepsy, where suddenly you collapse.
Now imagine you're driving a car, this happens to you.
Imagine you just walking down a flight of stairs and
it happens to the people who are affected, it happens.
They're not going to list of, you know a whole list of ailments and problems. And you're saying that how thankful should we be to Allah subhanho data for having given us good health.
And this is only one of the things
I remember, somebody I read is aware that they did a very interesting experiment in the University of California, with parents with chronic depressions, or with with patients, or parents where patients with chronic depression. And this experiment was very simple. They said, Every time you wake up every day, when you wake up in the morning, write down 10 things that you need to be grateful for.
We say we need to be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for but these are people they don't know unless they said 10 things that you need to be grateful for. And it doesn't matter if you can repeat the same 10 things every day, but just every write down 10 things
in these days of COVID the fact that we can breathe freely, is something to write as number one thing. We will ask the person who is struggling for struggling to breathe in a COVID word with a tube down his throat of a respirator. What is the value of just being able to take one deep breath
we do this he unthinkingly
The key is to think
so I submit to you that the goal of the skier is to fill the heart with the Hachette of Allah subhanaw taala.
So that we get the dual benefit of increasing our taqwa and of having tawakkol Allah subhanaw taala.
I should therefore is a shield against sin. When we have Taqwa, the doors of the promises of Allah subhanaw taala open for us because all the promises of Allah subhanaw taala are for the motorhome
in the la ma la Xena taco will levina Hamas, you know, and Zora Nadella said Verily, Allah is with the people of taqwa. And he's with the people of yours. And
we focus on creating cash out of a line arts geladeira. And as I said, the way to do that is to focus on the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala LOOK AT THE LOOK AT creation, look at yourself.
And then we focus on the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.
What is the login for each of us, there is a long list of our own that we can write and create
My brothers sisters, I want to end with this and say, focus on what Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed you with.
Don't look at what he didn't give you. Because what he did not give you is in many times, this is a bigger blessing than what he gave you. Because what he did not give you he did not give you out of his care and concern for you. Because he knew that that thing would be harmful for you. So he didn't give it he kept it to himself. Even though you begged and pleaded with him, he gave you the reward of the Mother of God, but he did not give you what you asked for,
say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.
This inshallah would produce content but it will produce peace in the heart, it will produce illumination of
the connection with the Muslims
and even produce the white dog.
Remember, these classes are no good, if you don't practice and therefore what you need to do is to go sit down, take a sheet of paper and write down
some things about the glory of Allah
and list the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala for you.
And thank Allah subhanaw taala for the
ask Allah Subhana Allah to illuminate your hearts with his questia with his nor with his Baraka and to put his Baraka in your lives and to make things easy for you and to take you out from your difficulties. And to fill your heart with
