Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala surefeed MBA with mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Sahbihi, Salah does live on cathedra and Kathira formado my brothers and sisters today in our final session and class on this get enough's with it, we're done o'clock, I want to quick do a quick recap of all that you mentioned. And
then remind you and myself that this is not the end of the movie, it may be the end of the of this particular course, but it's definitely not the end of the issue on the question of Cisco tarbiyah, but rather the beginning of it, where we start practicing Inshallah, we have been already practicing all that we learnt. And we need to complete and ensure that we practice all of this.
So the cycle of Ischia is a cycle which is what we learn, and then vagina, which is the practice of that, the, the,
the effort we make, and followed by power, so the three things are linked.
Where we make is to file and Java and change our lives. So we learn to be given the knowledge we make as the file on Java. And then we practice that knowledge so that we clean ourselves in our hearts in our souls, clean our intentions and then we when we are ready to meet Allah Subhana Allah Inshallah,
out of the sisters, three in the urban area, the 40 Hadith of an Imam, and the first three completely encompass everything to do with Islam. Without it, the first one is the Hadees Omnia in Albania, which means that we must focus always, always always on consciously doing whatever we do, and ensuring that that is for the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah
that itself is the biggest protection from all that is haram because if I consciously doing something for the pleasure of Allah Jalla DeLallo, then I could not be doing something which is haram. It would be completely oxymoronic to do that. So it's a huge protection. The second hadith is of course, algebraic, which is in detail,
everything to do with,
with Islam, with the mind and with XR, and of course, we don't have the time to go into all that detail, but do read it. And this is the detail, complete description of what our religion is. And the third one is the hadith is related to the halal and haram al-harbi or haram buying or buying a Houma booster we had originally said The Haram is clear The Haram is clear. And between the two are the doubtful matters, the one who leaves it out for Matters has saved himself and the one who enters the doubtful Matters has all actually entered that which is haram. So this is a very, very clear
indicator for us. In this context, I would say
that the foundation of the sky, the absolute foundation of the sky is based on eating and earning Hello
on eating and earning nothing, which is not hard, this is absolutely critical that we remind ourselves and do that. And make sure that our eating and learning is eating and earning is always always always Herat. The simplest thing is, if you are in doubt, leave it don't do it. I'll tell you a, an incident that happened with where my brother was witness to this we were invited to a very grand wedding in in India, which was in the Taj palace in the Taj Intercontinental Hotel. And on that reception day, there was amazing food and as you can imagine, this is they went diamond over there over the top to be to, you know, to make it a fantastic function.
So, there was every kind of food, there is food actually in separate rooms,
Hubbard halls, and there was one Hall which was completely and totally vegetarian, because a lot of people in India who are vegetarian, so
now the driver who was taking us to the place
he was a Hindu. And
so my brother said to him, I and he was also invited, he was among the invitees. So, my brother asked him, Are you not going to come and join us for the dinner? He said no.
So another said look, there is a complete section. For vegetarians. There is no no meat contamination.
anything, he said, sir, I do not eat in a place where meat is cooked.
It is not even talking about contamination, you know something from here that I don't eat in a place where meat is cooked. So here was a man who was actually use a poor man, there was no way that probably he could have afforded to eat in a hotel on his own,
even if he wanted to, and obviously he had never eaten there. So it was a unique experience. It was a something that, you know, maybe somebody will look forward to that. But he's so clear about his beliefs. And he is somebody who is a Hindu, he does not worship Allah subhanaw taala. He worships his own gods. In our framework, he is not a Muslim. He is a non Muslim, he is a he's a he's a disbeliever. He is a polytheist. Right. But he is so particular and he is so firm, and confident about what he believes in that he will live by that he doesn't talk about it, he lives by that.
And on the other hand, we have our Muslim brothers and sisters, may Allah forgive us, if they have to miss eating meat eating some chicken or something or drinking some thoughtful, thoughtful, you know,
drink, they for one meal, then when they act as if the world is going to end.
So please think about this. Think about think about what we are going to show Allah subhanaw taala when we meet him, that we could not even bring ourselves to incur the slightest of inconveniences.
Right Please understand, if you eat haram and Haram is I know you will not actually go and choose a haram thing to eat. It's talking here we're talking about eating awful things. And the Visa Services the one who enters the dolphin has entered the arena. So if there's something that you have doubt about and you're still doing it, it shows an attitude of I don't care and that is the worst of SIDS.
That's the worst upsets.
So if we are going to be doing that, then remember on the day of judgment we will face a lot What are you going to say to us?
So if the food is not pure if the food is haram and the earning is haram
There's a famous story about
one of the great scholars of the self
who had a donkey and he sold his donkey to a man came we took the donkey bought it went away. Two days later the man came back to the to this person and he said
he said check your donkey does not eat I give him food he doesn't eat is today's a past. He's not eating this year asked him what is your what is your job? What do you do? How do you earn your money? He said I'm a dancer.
They teach the dancing sings and dances or whatever
the XFL bring the Docu back and take your money my donkey will not eat from earnings which are haram
so if you are a you know dancing film actor or whatnot, he said your earning is haram so my donkey what my donkey will not eat food in your house.
Man this is a donkey
even the donkey does not want to eat food which is haram What do you say about people who are earning haram eating haram feeding their children who are feeding feeding their families around the family also knows it is haram because that income is coming either from some bank loan or some bank interest or something or it's coming because of bribery because the person is taking bribes.
They know it is out and they still do it. And they call themselves Muslim and say why why go and pray five times a day I do this I do that I've ever been a mom I have a big beard. Please understand all of these things are
the Sunnah is to have the beard It is haram to shave your beard if you are a Muslim man
and do wear an AMA and so on so forth all of these Asuna very nice, very beautiful, but what comes before all of that
is to earn halaal and to eat halal.
Without that, there's no tusky of the knifes because even though the body's not there, your body is being nourished on haram food.
There's a beautiful
story from the Sierra about our Casa de la I'm sure I must have mentioned this before but you know Abdullah is good for us to remember these things over and over again.
One day we'll get to it on their own who came home
in the afternoon he was hungry. He was thirsty. His sound was there he asked him Is there anything with the sound brought him a bowl of milk?
says an avocado so they drank the milk.
After he finished the seven said to him yeah see
before you eat or drink anything
Ask me, the source of that thing. You always ask me, where did you get that from?
Today, you didn't ask me
to do that. And I said la hora de La Villa.
The fact that I always ask you is you should know by now therefore, that I am so particular about the source of what you what you give me with any food. So what was this? The man's at this milk. He said, I used to be a sorcerer magician.
I used to cards, cast spells and so on, before I became Muslim,
and I had done some work within courts, for a tribe which lives outside of Medina.
And they had not paid me.
He said today I was going by going by there and they gave me this bowl of milk as payment for something I did for them. In my days, priests law.
He said, I brought it home, you asked me I gave you drag it. Now, look at the fifth issue in this. This milk was something that belonged to that map, it had been given as a gift to that man, that man gave it to a vulgar city father, as his gift.
So that's one thing. Second thing is whatever the man did before he became Muslim and he became Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala forgive all that.
Second thing, third thing, our city rather I know, when he drank this milk, he did not know of what was the source of
of that milk. So he drank something which was in itself halaal it was something which was given to him as a gift by another Muslim. It was something which he drank without even knowing. So he had he had no knowledge of the source of that thing.
What did you do?
I will look to see there are there are no put his fingers into his mouth into down his throat. I started vomiting he brought out all the milk and he continued until he his blood came out.
So they stopped him and they said what are you doing? You will kill yourself. He said I have heard from My Habib.
I have heard from my beloved who is the beloved of our currency. They are the Lana Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ali who said listen, he said I have heard from my beloved that if a person eats even a morsel just a small piece of something which is haram and this gets digested becomes part of his body then the fire of Jana is YG
is compulsory on that body.
Everyone sisters, I asked you to ask yourself
every time you eat a doubtful chicken, is it worth it?
Every time you're drinking Coke and Pepsi, is it worth it? Every time you are drinking something where you don't know the ingredients? Is it worth it?
don't do this to yourself.
Do not do this to yourself. Don't eat anything which is not hand slaughtered by a Muslim who said Bismillah Allahu Akbar.
All factory processed meats. Don't touch them. Don't worry which Halal stamp is on it. Don't touch them.
Any drink any food where you do not know the ingredients is by definition haram.
Ask yourself what you would do if you had a doubt that one of those ingredients might give you a severe allergy which might result in death.
Would you still would you still drink that?
Somebody says you know, I don't know.
You so if you don't know that I'm not gonna touch it. Because if that ingredient if that allergen is there as an ingredient, this happens to people with with nut allergies, for example.
All kinds of nut allergies a very, very severe
there was a case of two people on an Emirates flight
who sat in the toilet
completely masked and covered
because they were serving nuts on the plane.
And these people didn't know so they're not only not eating the nuts but just the nuts in the plane was something which was so severely dangerous for them that they spent the whole flight sitting in the toilet.
Right door shut
so for an allergy you are willing to do all of this, but to please Allah
Hannah della, you can't do anything.
These are these are the symptoms and these are the symbols of truth has gotten us
because if our if our if our
knifes and our desires and our will and wishes
cannot even take this little pain of ensuring that we eat wholesome stuff which is completely and totally halaal without doubt.
And what does Gabby talking about?
That's why we chose to limit this to our long enough. See, taqwa was a ke ha and the Hiram Mundaka and the valley you have warm Hola. Hola give my soul piety and my conscience purity. You are the master of my soul and the guardian of my conscience.
Everyone sisters, beware of self satisfaction,
the source of every disobedience, every indifference and passion is self satisfaction.
The source of every obedience and every vigilance and every virtue is dissatisfaction with oneself. So you constantly keep seeking to become better. It is better for you to keep the company with an ignorant way.
Or ignorant person dissatisfied with himself than to keep the company with a learner person satisfied with himself. For what knowledge is there in a self satisfied scholar.
And what ignorance is there in unlearned man, a person who is dissatisfied with himself versus
the person who is dissatisfied will keep on seeking to get something better, better. But the person who's self satisfied is complacent he will get nothing.
Being sensitive to one's own rights, one's own rights and indifferent to the rights of others. This is a sign of self satisfaction and it's a danger signal. ignoring your own faults, as if you have none. While being preoccupied with the faults of others.
Avoid one said it contented A does not see faults.
So don't look at other people. Don't point at their mistakes. Let them leave them alone. They have it that's between them and Allah. Look at yourself and say what am I doing? How am I doing?
And giving oneself too much of leniency? Sure, don't do you don't need to keep on beating yourself up. But at the same time giving yourself too much of leniency is a sign of a problem.
See the AMA danza ro he said that there are three signs of being overly content with yourself first is being sensitive to one's own rights and indifferent to the rights of others. In Islam, one's responsibilities pre ponder it, the overcome and they are more important over one's rights. Focus on duties forget about rights. The second sign is ignoring one's faults, as if you have none while being occupied with the faults of others.
This is very very important. The third one is to give yourself too much of leniency and this is from see the
book, a person checks himself. A person checks himself is self accusing and wary of his intentions. Usually Salah was known for his exceptional purity.
And then he said
I do not declare myself innocent, but the soul of one commands evil except upon one home Allah has mercy
in the NAFSA llamar to be su Illa Mara Mara.
So one should ask myself, Am I doing this for show up for the sake of Allah Samantha?
Because our RIA just showing off, seeking the pleasure and seeking the the praise from people is a major sign off the sickness of the heart.
Second is being careful of the blemishes of the soul. As soon as you make dua Allah do not leave me to my soul to my enough's even for the blink of an eye. Allah Allah tacky li Illa enough seats are for time.
And third thing is
Zod forcing yourself to do difficult things, or to do things which are painful, because you understand that the reason why they are painful is because that's a sign of a weak image. Otherwise, why would we? Why would it be painful? Like eating less and spending money in charity?
I was one of the latter he said Whoever sees anything good about himself
has not seen the fault of is so
very important to be critical with yourself.
My model stay a state that diseases and blessings are related to the person to the company that one keeps. As soon as SLM said, A man takes on the religion of his companion.
As it has said, if you sit at the door of a tavern at a bar, you will either walk in and drink it, or merely smell the stench of alcohol and drunkards. But if you sit the door, sit at the door of a perfumer, you will either either walk in, and you will wear the perfume, or at least you enjoy the fragrance to depends on where you sit. What is the kind of company that you and I keep?
I want sisters, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to,
to do these things. It's very, very important for us to remember this, always, always always. Because
without this, really we
know there's this.
Without this ViCAP we cannot possibly succeed. That's good enough is absolutely critical. As far as understanding the deen is concerned, and as far as getting close to Allah subhanaw taala is concerned. And that's why it's very important for us to ensure that we
constantly examine ourselves, you know, you get into
these frames of mind where you focus on some minor thing, and you miss out a big thing. For example, there is this wonderful story of this guy
in in a factory. And he one day came to the security to leave to the security guard, he came wheeling a wheelbarrow. And in the wheelbarrow. There was a small box.
So the security guard asked him what's in the box. The man said sawdust.
Guard said show me so you opened the box, there was sawdust. He said
The second day. He did the same thing. Third day for the fifth day.
After a week of this
everyday he will come with his wheelbarrow with a box in it. And the guy Roski what's in the box, which is sawdust.
He said this sawdust is you know it falls on the floor. So I'm taking it home I have some use for it.
This guard somehow had this suspicion.
So the seventh day the guard said to him Look,
I know you're stealing something.
Right? Something tells me that you are stealing something.
Tell me what you're stealing. And I promise you I will not punish you. I will not report you nothing. Just tell me what are you stealing?
Because I am seeing this boxes. You said sawdust. It's got sawdust.
But you are stealing something? What is stealing? The man said wheelbarrows.
He said what will work? So he's taking the wheelbarrow, the big wheelbarrow the garden? Look at it. Is it something he bought? Is it some where did the beaver come from? He's focused on the box. What's in the box? Because that's the conditioning. Look at the box what is in the thing? The container we don't check.
This is what we need to look at ourselves and say that when I am looking at somebody whose fault
am I focusing on myself or that person? It's SOC so and so it doesn't come for further to the budget so and so he sleeps through the E three through five so and so he comes to pray but he's got no topia and said he's got no cap on.
That person he is involved in interest based transaction this one is eating doubtful food all of which may be true but the fact remains that not that you are not accountable for any of them.
What they do is between them and monitor. At most you tell them you point them in the right direction 100
But what is important is to look at myself and say that even though I am going to the masjid every day to praise a lot of Virgil by Jeremiah what is the quality of my salah?
That is what I will be questioned about
understand Murphy's law the mhashu and in the Salah they have por su do I have Portugal masala
I'm going to the masjid but we have Fisher masala am I going to the images because of what people will say oh he lives near the Majapahit doesn't pray or am I going to the masjid because I want to please Allah subhanaw taala
what is my motivation?
This is the very important thing. The thing very very important thing is
to look at ourselves and say where do I stand before Allah subhanaw taala because likes Rama Delana said you know if the whole world was to Jana and I go to Jana hamdulillah and if the whole world goes to Jana and I'm the only one in Jana
in that dilemma the
end of the day, doesn't matter where anybody is going, what matters is where I'm going.
So, let me focus on myself let me remind myself Let me ask myself
and let me ensure that I do that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala.
and not something else.
The beauty of the laughs The the the benefit of the scallops is it's phenomenal.

it will open the doors of contentment in our hearts it will fill our hearts with no and with Akasha Allah subhanaw taala and drive out every other fear in our hearts

and does get the loves was translated into 32 o'clock. purification of the soul must translate into

an MD improvement of our behavior.
A person who has a pure heart also has a pure tongue.
You cannot have a tongue which is filled with profanity and which is which tells lies and which does Riba and and backbiting and slander and claim to have a heart is pure know.
The purity of the heart is reflected on what is on my tongue. My purity of my heart is reflected on what I do with my eyes. What do I look at? The purity of my heart is reflected in my ears. What do I listen to?
The purity of my heart is reflected in my timetable Maha what does my day look like? How does my day begin from where does it begin to where does it end?
The purity of my heart reflect is reflected in the choices I make in life. In what I eat, what I drink, where I earn from.
Who do I spend time with? My friends, my my companions.
All of these reflect the purity of my heart.
How do I deal with people, especially in stress situations? How do I deal with somebody I'm in conflict with? How do I deal with somebody I'm angry with? How do I deal with somebody who has been
unjust to me, and unfair to me.
All of this reflects and is shown by the purity. They are reflections of the purity of my heart.
And that's what I need to look for. And I request you that's where you need to look for
signs of the purity of your hearts.
That's very important.
