00:00:00--> 00:00:26

Let my mother Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shortfilm da one mousseline. Mohammadu Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to Sleeman Kathira cathedra, from abajo. My brothers and sisters, we are, we continue with our lessons on 30th enough so terrible luck, luck, I remind myself and you that benefit comes only from practice,

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

not from knowing about something

00:00:29--> 00:00:36

we need to learn in order to know what to practice, but unless we practice, there is no benefit,

00:00:37--> 00:00:46

whether in D nordonia, the same thing applies only practice is results and only results benefit.

00:00:48--> 00:00:55

We continue with this and I mentioned persistence in sinning as one of the

00:00:57--> 00:01:20

reasons for a bad ending. And that is something therefore we should guard very strongly against, because persistence is a sign of arrogance. Only a person who is arrogant will persist in disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. And the argument that, that some people in the ignorance

00:01:22--> 00:01:58

place before themselves and others, which is that they say oh, after all, it was a small thing, to consider any disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala to be small, is the biggest sin because that is a sin of arrogance, beyond which there is very little less so therefore, persistence in sin and continuous continuing to do something which is wrong, something which is a sin, something which is which angers Allah subhanaw taala and insisting on doing it. This is the one of the reasons for Su AlkaViva for a bad ending, may Allah protect us.

00:01:59--> 00:02:19

Another one is the hardness of the heart to heart which is not moved by the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala a heart which is not moved by thoughts of meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala a heart which is which remains unrepentant and which remains,

00:02:20--> 00:02:24

you know, we does not care about the

00:02:25--> 00:02:43

pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and the anger of Allah subhanaw taala This is a sign of, of terrible consequences may Allah protect us from that ahora Viola one who narrated he said that a dryness of the eyes is a symptom of the hardness of the heart,

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

a heart that does not respond to the column of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala

00:02:50--> 00:03:23

which does not Shiva with all at the glory and majesty of Allah, a heart that does not feel or respond, this heart is dead. And this is a very major sickness among the sicknesses of the heart, and by and perhaps the most lethal, because if we persist in that, then this results in closing of the door of guidance. hard hearts are fewer of Johannah. So this is something that we absolutely must cure.

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

Without a doubt, we need to ask ourselves, and if we have a hard heart, then it's something that needs to be

00:03:33--> 00:04:05

needs to be cured. How do you go that by focusing on the aka try to visualize as much as you can, standing before Allah subhanaw taala geladeira remember our depth and other ways to remember the fact that one day I will die to remember the fact that one day I will be placed in a in my grave and what will happen with the grave and what will happen when I started before Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. So please,

00:04:06--> 00:04:14

educate yourself remember these things and inshallah May Allah guide us to do that which benefits us inshallah.

00:04:16--> 00:04:25

Now, there is also some good news and that is the eyes, the fire will not touch in the Hadith integrity. As soon as salaries

00:04:26--> 00:04:49

has been reported, he said that there are three types of eyes on the Jahannam will not touch one the AI which keeps itself shut from things forbidden by Allah. Why AI that does not gaze on haram but does not look at haram. Number two, the eyes that guards the frontiers of Islam

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

and number three, and remains

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

open to keep visual over it. And number three is the eye which constantly sheds

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

tears out of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala has angered three kinds of eyes that the fire will not touch one eyes that do not look on haram, the shot itself when any haram come in front of it. Another one which stays awake to guide the frontiers of Islam. Whether this is made fizzy physically as in

00:05:22--> 00:05:56

as in the in a field of battle when there is such an opportunity, or whether it is staying awake to read and research and write, and so on and so forth. Whatever the case might be, to counter the attacks on Islam and the third one is an AI which weeps with the glory and magnificence the all and majesty of Unohana data when the person thinks about that, so these are these are three kinds of eyes melas Martha grant, that we are from those who have at least one of these, if not all,

00:05:57--> 00:06:46

so the first question to ask ourselves is, do we qualify in this case? I will just as a last reminder that I said from consult kumoko member the Delica for here called HR or the our shadow crosswalk. We're in nominal reality LaMotta for gentlemen will unhappy. We're in minha llama Shaco for your follow up. No mean hold Ma. We're in minha llama, Vito mean Harsha Tila, Allah will be of our feeling our my time alone is autoboca which means ALLAH said then after that your hearts were hardened, and became like stones or even worse, in hardness? And indeed there are stones out of which rivers gush forth and indeed there are of them, that is stalls which split asunder, so that

00:06:46--> 00:07:25

water flows from them, and indeed there are them. There are of the meanings tours, which fall down for the fear of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is not unaware of what you do, may Allah subhanaw taala save us from having a hard heart. Then Allah subhanaw taala said avanzada Hallo southern a holy Islami for her Allah no Remi Robbie, for ye lil Casia eikelboom In decree la la ecoffee Allah Allah movie Allah said is he whose breasts Allah has open to Islam, so that he is in the light from his robe, the one who is

00:07:29--> 00:07:40

also in Who is he the one who's whose breast Allah has opened Islam, so that he is in light from his rub, meaning the person who is a Muslim.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

So what are those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of Allah they are in plain error. Allah said.

00:07:52--> 00:08:12

The one who Allah has whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, is that person equal to the one who has who is not like that meaning somebody who is not a Muslim, somebody whose heart is not open, they are not the same. And Allah is saying that the one who Allah has whose heart Allah has opened is obviously somebody who is

00:08:13--> 00:08:41

in a superior position. May Allah grant us that position of guides, Allah said, Allah Who knows Allah Asad Hadith he kita Muto shabby him with a shabby Han masa Ania Daksha Eero Minho. julu The legendary of shoulder bow, how beautiful this is some Tolino julu home Baku home Illa de la Vallee go the lahi you had the behavior on your shirt? Well, me usually the level from Allah who've been hurt. Allah said.

00:08:43--> 00:09:29

This is like a diagnostic instrument that Allah is giving us Allah said, Allah has sent down the best statement, a book the Quran, its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, which is often repeated. The skins of those who fear their shiver from it when they recite it or hear it, then their skin and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala that is the guidance from Allah. He guides there with whom He pleases and whomsoever Allah allows to go straight for him there is no guide. Now this is a beautiful diagnostic tool to see to monitor ourselves physiologically to say what happens to me when I listen to for example, recitation of Quran or what

00:09:29--> 00:09:41

happens to me when I see around me the signs almost Valterra are what happens to me when I contemplate and reflect on the meaning of the of the Quran some if right? Is anything happening to me?

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

Or am I completely impervious? To that, and this is a very important thing. It's a diagnostic tool for us to use for ourselves to see what is the state of my heart. And if I am among those who are impervious to this, my heart does not move. Nothing happens to me.

00:10:01--> 00:10:39

We did a study on the Quran or with remembering deaths or during the Accra nothing is happening no change that this is a sign of a very, very major illness of the heart which sickness of the heart which I need to cure. And the way to cure that is to make a lot of the operator had to make a lot of times will before Allah ask Allah to cure it, because only unlike and cure it and then continuously try to think as much as possible about the standing before Allah subhanaw taala the day of genuine and even before that, what will happen to us in our cohorts, when we go into our graves, the questioning of the grave, the punishment of the grave, think about all of these things, so that the

00:10:39--> 00:10:54

heart then softens and this heart which is harder, because the heart is only looking at the material world, this sickness of the material world being having impregnated the heart, this sickness inshallah will be cured.

00:10:57--> 00:11:00

A lot of Mandela said the, the,

00:11:01--> 00:11:28

the I which I recite it Allah said Allah has sent down the best statement, a book The Quran is parts resembling each other and goodness and truth oft repeated the skills of those who fear the rub Shiva from it, when they decided to hear it. And then the skin and their heart soften to the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah, a guidance from Allah He guides there with whom He pleases, and whomsoever Allah allows to go astray for him there is no guide. So

00:11:30--> 00:11:59

I'm repeating that for us to emphasize that. The another major sickness is the lack of shame before Allah geladeira who while knowing that he is watching us committing the sin, Imagine all the people who spend a lot of time may Allah protect us watching pornographic stuff that Allah knows what we are doing a lay seeing us doing that. We feel no shame in doing that knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is watching knowing that Allah Subhana Allah knows, knowing that Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:00--> 00:12:39

dislikes this, Allah did not create our eyes to watch these things yet we watch them and we have no feeling of shame. Even the Haven jogger Abdullah said this is a major sickness, and it is a lack of shame before Allah while knowing that he is watching us committing the sin. This is a major sickness because if a person believes that Allah is not watching, then he has existed Islam altogether, if he believes that Allah is watching, but he persists in committing the sin, and he's in serious trouble, because he may be written down as being rebellious, and the doors of guidance may be shut for him. And he may be denied the opportunity even to make Dawa. So time to make the final goodbyes right

00:12:39--> 00:13:15

now. Do what you need to do to ensure that you will stay far away from this very major problem, quite apart from the psychological damage that pornography does to a individual which is enormous, which completely ruins your life going forward. Please get out of this is a very, very major, major problem. There are lots Verda said and Allah now is saying, talking about those who despite all the warnings, despite all the remainder despite being

00:13:17--> 00:13:25

you know, warned and demanded to obey Allah subhanaw taala and not disobey Him who continue and persist in disobeying Allah Subhana.

00:13:27--> 00:13:41

Allah does this phenomena so Marzuki Ruby, Fatah, Hana, Allah him abueva Foolish he had that either for the whole Bhima Bhutto AKAZA now home by the data for either home movie soon.

00:13:42--> 00:14:20

How terrible is that situation? I was rather sad. So when they followed the warning, meaning they ignored the warning with which they are being divided. Then what does the law say I will immediately punish them. No, Allah says We open to them the gates of every pleasant thing, until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given, all of a sudden, we took them to punishment, and lo, they were plunged into destruction with deep regret and sorrow. Now think about this. What is being said here? What it means earlier is that in the midst of this in the midst of watching haram, in the midst of doing haram in the midst of eating and drinking arrive in the midst of company which is

00:14:20--> 00:14:55

haram, then death will come and if you die in that state, remember what kind of death is that how horrible that is and then you will be resurrected with some said you will be resurrected the way you die. So if you die in that state, if you dry with a glass of alcohol in your hand if you die with committing Zina or watching pornography or you die making the Rebbe or whatever the nature of the sin, the harm that you're doing, if we die in that state, we will be resurrected doing that. Imagine that disgrace of that before all of humankind. We will all those people who didn't know that we were doing this day will see it on that day.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

Oh terrible is that? So the time to make is the foreign Dawa is

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Right now, right now as we talk and as we listen, let us be very, very, very clear, stay far, far, far away from our disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala because this ayat is a local law, which last month that I mentioned, that they will be caught suddenly means that they will not even have the opportunity to make his current job. And if you die without making a foreign Toba, may Allah protect to me, that could mean that we end up in the hellfire. And that is something that we need to be very, very careful about now some diagnostic tools. One is to check to see if your heart responds to the column of Allah and to any reminders about the Accra. See, Think about what happens to you and

00:15:45--> 00:16:23

me when we listen to the Quran. When we listen to any reminders about the second one, do you find irritation in your heart with people who talk about the accident? Does that happen? Do you find you irritated by that? So what why why we're always talking about death. And I'll talk about the occurrence and so on. Is that Is that happening to number three is what is your conversation about Dunia All right monitor conversation is something that I say all the time. It's very important monitor con because composition. Our our our speech is a reflection of what's in the heart. So if our hearts are consumed by the dunya, then icon the icon relation will also be only by the union

00:16:23--> 00:16:57

only about so what is the conversation is about dunya or aka. Now that doesn't mean that we don't talk about business or something No. predominant conversation, especially social conversation. I'm not talking about transactional stuff which we are doing in terms of our lives and businesses that has to be done we do that I'm talking about so when that transactional stuff is not there when I when it's when it's when I'm really looking at something in the in depth. When I'm free when I'm talking to people, what do I talk more about is it Dunia or aka and the fourth one is our words like Allah subhana wa Tada Rasulullah sallallahu Silla,

00:16:58--> 00:17:10

do Jasmine, Jana, Jana, pleasure of Allah, anger of Allah and so on, are these part of normal conversation in your home and at work. And if they are not, then this is a sign of

00:17:11--> 00:17:49

sound disaster. The very important genre is it. He called it a sign of disaster. He said if you are committing sin and see that nothing bad is happening to you and instead you are getting more wealth and power and so on. That it is a sign that perhaps the doors of EDA have been shut for you. And Allah's punishment is already bigger. This is Muhammad Shafi Ali, this is what he said, they don't be happy about that. If you are committing sin, if you are doing haram, if you are borrowing money on interest, and you are running your business and you find the business is growing more, and you borrow more money on interest, and you're running the business and you find the business grows more,

00:17:49--> 00:18:03

right, and you're your financial analysts, and so on, they come and tell you, you know you need a bigger house, you need a fancy Fancier car, and so on and so on. Because we have to have this image, which is all of this is pure and pure shatta.

00:18:05--> 00:18:11

And if you're falling into that trap, remember, it means that the love of Allah on you has already begun.

00:18:13--> 00:18:22

Allah protect us from ourselves. We are our greatest enemies. Our biggest enemy is sitting right inside our heart which is on us, which is our high shot which is our heart.

00:18:23--> 00:18:30

Now, what is the medicine, five things number one, daily Mahasiswa and daily, sincere,

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

sincere repentance. Number two, remembering that you and I will die one day.

00:18:39--> 00:18:51

Consciously sit and think about this and say One day I will die. All of this stuff that I'm surrounded with will remain here. I'm going to alone. Not even my clothes, even this will be taken off my body.

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

And I will go to Allah number three, the vicar of Allah. The hijos Tila with the Quran and dica

00:19:00--> 00:19:05

make Nigel follow yourself. Make it further yourself to recite at least one Jews of Quran every day.

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

And make vicar

00:19:09--> 00:19:23

make that part of your daily routine in the morning and evening as car sending Durood salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam make this part of your duty duty number four, eat less sleep less silence and solitude.

00:19:24--> 00:19:39

Right we have to control our environment. We cannot be in the we cannot jump into the lake and say I will not get wet at all. You will get wet. There is no other way. So if you don't want to get wet, don't jump into the lake.

00:19:40--> 00:19:54

You cannot walk out in the rain and say I will not get wet. You don't want to get wet. hold an umbrella. What's an umbrella heatless sleepless silence and solitude by our being by yourself because that's the only way we can reflect and bios have meaning remove these telephones.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

We have dumb people and smartphones. We need smart people and dumped

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

fonts

00:20:01--> 00:20:12

and vibe. Follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salem strictly and joyously with, with with, with a happiness not as a not as a chore not as something which is

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

a mercy was to develop Taqwa because this is our shield.

00:20:19--> 00:21:02

Guard, our eyes are sort of wrestling said the glass is a poisoned arrow of shatter whoever lowers his gaze for Allah, He will bestow upon him a refreshing sweetness, which he will find in his heart on the day that he meets him. Allah subhanaw taala I repeat Rasulullah Salah was reported to have said the glands is a poisoned arrow, I think what is he saying? glands, meaning accidentally you have a look at something around right? There is a salamander. xaba They did not even conceptualize that you would actually go to a website which is a pornographic website and sit and watch a pornographic movie can you imagine? I mean, so I love it these these sins were not even there in

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

those days.

00:21:05--> 00:21:09

Even accidental glance, to look back again, this is a this is haram.

00:21:11--> 00:21:21

There is another person, the one who does not do that, who lives down this person, Allah will give him a beautiful refreshing sweetness, which

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

he will find in his heart on the day when he meets almost

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

because the glass is a poisoned arrow of shaitan

00:21:30--> 00:21:45

eating less, I'll make them Ma Ma Yep, crib he said I heard are soulless. And as I'm saying. The son of Adam Alayhis Salam feels no vessel more displeasing to Allah than a stock

00:21:46--> 00:22:13

a few morsels should be enough for him to preserve his strength. If He must feel it, then he should allow a third for his for only 1/3 A third for his drink and leave the third empty for easy breathing. And this is in filming. So when we say that Asana Salim said it 1/3 He didn't say it was that easy read just a couple of morsels. Just a few. If you must eat that eat only up to 1/3

00:22:15--> 00:22:19

we eat and we eat till we are ready to bust.

00:22:20--> 00:22:22

May Allah protect us from ourselves

00:22:26--> 00:22:33

about the hedgehog. As I said, Make it further on yourself. Because this is something which will which is of truly great benefit.

00:22:36--> 00:23:19

Unless rather than I mentioned that the Jaffa genome and Neil magaji donor Rob bomb from what Tamara, when we model the economic fallout Darla would have so male female home men karate iron Jazza ambi Makhan Yamano, Allah said their sides forsake their beds, meaning they get up in the night to invoke the rub in fear and hope binal Coffee with Tamra to stand with what Allah and call upon Him in a state where they're between their heart is between the fear of Allah anger and hope Allah's mercy and they spend your charity in the Cause of Allah from what We have bestowed on them. And then Allah is promising, he says no person knows what is kept hidden for them out of joy as a

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

reward for what they used to do.

00:23:22--> 00:24:03

I think about that, that Allah's was saying that I have prepared for these people who pray the high yields of these people who get up in the night these people who have this state of mind, where they are standing between the fear of Allah's Anger and hope of His mercy. This is the state of the Muslim between my coffee whatever is heavy was was young Sammy was dying, there was no sort of meant to see him. He asked him How are you is that jasola I fear the anger of Allah, Akbar Johanna, and I hope for him as mercy. And unless forgiveness as soon as I was upset, Allah will protect you from that which you fear and Allah will give you that which you hope for. So this is the state of the

00:24:03--> 00:24:25

Muslims, how we should be. So Allah is saying when a person like that he says that what I have prepared for him as a reward for this is something that he cannot even imagine. It's something that is so beautiful, and so wonderful, that it's something which he cannot even imagine. But it is something that will give him great joy when he gets it or she gets it.

00:24:26--> 00:24:59

The last thing I want to say to here is the key which is a solar solar system was given a key which was the strength from somewhere to draw strings from and these ads are revealed is among the first I have to reveal they were revealed almost 12 years before Salah we came to the Angela being prayed I was a wrestler is our praying satiety for 1011 years or 12 years before the five first sort of became fun. And these are the eyes of the Muslim in the beginning I had lost my dad said yeah, you almost

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Hello Camila kalila this one woman cosmonaut kalila Ozy de la he worked till Kurata Tila international PR league colon tequila internatia The lady here Asha what our Mattila

00:25:18--> 00:25:56

the meaning of which is Allah's rather said, oh you wrapped in governance which refers to very lovingly a sort of insular, stand to pray all night except a little half of it or a little less than that little more and recite the Quran aloud in a slow, pleasant tone and style. Verily We shall send down to you a weighty Word which is Islam and the law. Verily the rising by night for the hedgerow prayer is very hard and most potent and good for governing the soul and most suitable for understanding the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. Imagine how beautiful

00:25:58--> 00:26:40

this is a lion saying yes, we know it is difficult. But we also are telling you and reminding you that this is the best thing for you for yourself. This is the Hidayat being given to so nice and awesome. And then Lesson Two therefore this shows us the importance of the budget. Then Allah's rather as a result of Amina Layli for the hijab we hear and feel at the La Casa and a Yasaka Ramu karma, karma Buddha, and in some parts of the night also established Salah with it that is beside the Quran. In prayer as an additional breath, the hazard for you or my muscles. It may be that your app will raise you to mahkamah Maha Mudra station of praise and glory and the highest degree and

00:26:40--> 00:26:49

Jana this is for Rosa Rosa, Santa Rosa just is very, very important for us to keep this in mind and say, How am I doing with regard to

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

this very important aspect of

00:26:53--> 00:27:13

that's good enough, which is to pray to God there is literally a meter it's an indicator to show how real the anchor is for me to show how real the question of Allah is for me, anyone who has who's bringing down to the JELA This is evidence in their favor. Now, let me give you some

00:27:14--> 00:27:39

eight points that you can think about Inshallah, which I call my scare metrics. The first one is how is my other? How do I behave with people? This is very important as part of the scare. A person with a scare, has the best behavior. Ask others for feedback number 2am I am I more focused on myself or others? Number three, what happens to me during Salah especially? What is the internal state?

00:27:40--> 00:28:20

Number four? What's my attitude to the Sunnah? Do I follow this or not? Do I follow it with confidence with pride with happiness? Or either I don't follow it at all or I follow it and I consider it to a bird. Number five, how do I respond to warnings? No matter what I'm doing if somebody tells me something, and says look changes because of this thing displays a lot. What is my attitude? Do I get angry with them? If I get irritated with them? Or do I say Alhamdulillah? Allah does a favor to me that I have been warned and I can make fun of the one you do that. Number six, how often do I remember death? We don't have the services and he said the most intelligent of you

00:28:20--> 00:28:32

are the ones who remember that that most offer. Number seven, how much zikr and charity do I do on a daily basis? make this into a daily I would like to eat food every day, give some money in charity every day.

00:28:33--> 00:28:44

And number eight, how much fasting do I do regularly outside of Allah may Allah subhanaw taala help us to do these things and to ensure that we

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

that we

00:28:48--> 00:29:21

you know, we do the fasting and so on that we do what we are supposed to do, and benefit from that inshallah i My message is very, very important. The whole issue of the skilled enough so that we will have lab that we must ensure that we practice, they continuously and I'm sorry to sound like a broken record, saying the same thing over and over again. But that is the reality. I mean, if you're if you're not going to do that, then just talking about it doesn't help. We have to practice

00:29:22--> 00:29:36

and only when we practice will we get the benefit of that. And that's why I'm saying this over and over again. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to be and to help us to do that which is pleasing to Him and to save us from that which is not pleasing

00:29:38--> 00:29:52

for us Alajuela Phil on our local facility from Beratan Apollonia has relocated to another one that was a law that will carry him while he was able to get on the right knee or Soleimani for a workout.
