smithdown hamdulillah was sent out to a Salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah alayhi wa sahbihi women who Allah
so inshallah continuing where we left off.
Allah smart Allah, as we said created us for hobo dia.
And we need to understand what that means. The word Buddha and rabada are all acts, that Allah smart Allah loves and is pleased with
words, actions, thoughts,
everything that the last one loves and is pleased with. And Obadiah is when every aspect of our life becomes an activity by 24 hours a day, whatever we are doing, is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And this is not just for the external senses, but also our thoughts, our aims, our objectives, our desires, what gives us pleasure, what makes us angry, all of that should be in conformity with what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us.
So that's what we are trying to achieve. And to achieve that, we need to have a culture that is sound.
So now we come to the cycle of the sky itself.
And the question is, is the skier optional? Is this from the NOAA Phil? Is it something that if you want you do or is it something that's necessary, mandated for?
You have some proof of that?
Let's go back to when the Kaaba was built. Our father Ibrahim Ali Salam
he made a part of that was, he said
Rasulullah Minh whom yet louella Hema Tikka? Where you Alamo hoomans Kitab al Hekmat.
Why you Zeki him. In the content of this one hacking, he said, Oh our Lord,
send from among them
a messenger, to recite to them your ayat your verses.
And to teach them the book, which is the Quran and the hekman the wisdom which sometimes translated as the sooner and to purify them,
he made the DA four
or you key him purified them this would be the function of the messenger that he called for. And the last $1 responded to the Tao of Ibrahim Ali Salaam.
And he sent a messenger
which is the higher of surah. Juma accept, it has the same components except Allah subhanaw taala change the orders.
What did he say?
That Allah is the one who sent the messenger
t to recite to them the is where you Zeki him, purify them first while you are level Kitab and Hickman then teach them the book
and the Wisdom
No, okay. So Allah subhanaw taala here is a human being has fallen making a DA he puts things in certain order of loss mantella changes that order to teach us that to study the book. And the Sunnah and the wisdom of this Deen you need to have a cup that is in balance, you need to be in a state of this gear. Otherwise you will miss interpret the Quran, according to your own inclinations. I want to see it this because I'm tilted. If If I'm tilted, I'm not in balance. You put a ball here, it's going to roll down this slope. If I'm tilted this way, so we have to be in that state of belski of purity of balance, then we understand the Quran correctly.
Okay, this is what Allah Allah says. Let's take another idea that chef YAHWAH said before,
so everybody knows the Surah Surah a shrimps
Enough surah Shams is unique because it has some faults. There are 11 oaths that are lost one Atala takes in one after the other.
Awesome. Both does the last mantle need to take an oath for anything? No.
But Allah smart Allah uses this to stress the importance of what is coming. And in most places our last one the Lord swears by a few things. And Allah smart Allah is the only one who can swear by his creation. We only swear by him.
What Shamsi Raja ha ha? Well Comrie that Allah when the hurry the agenda laelia yaksha
was summer he
well are they were Maha su amasa 11 notes, three of which are he is sweating on himself
by the heavens and the one who created by the earth and the one who spread by the by the knifes the soul and the one who proportioned it himself. So what happens when you see this in the Quran? These oats that there is something called jawaban Custom what is the important thing that's coming after that that's super important.
Allah one fella says, cut
off the Harmon
habermann This indeed the one who has done the ski off is not successful and the one who has destroyed it and indulged it and is a failure.
Who is corrupted is enough sense of failure. So Allah subhanaw taala has taken all these roads to tell us the importance of what needs to be done. Allah subhanaw taala changed the order of how we are to study our Deen
then we can interpret things correctly.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam taught us part of a hadith where he said that verily in the body there is a piece of flesh if it is sound the whole body is sound if it's corrupt the whole bodies sound is if it's corrupted, the whole body is corrupted. Well he'll call this is the heart telling you that this little piece of
We are not saying the physical flesh but what is attached with this the spiritual code is
the whole summary of everything. This controls everything this controls your dounia this controls your family life this controls your personal life this controls the state of peace and tranquility and stress that you have this controls your state at the time of death this controls what you are going to do in the grave when your question this controls what your state is going to be on your multi this controls where your destination is going to be.
That's how important it is okay.
So, as we said the process of the skier is to liberate the culture from those negative lower if parts of the knifes and to develop that malarkey, angelic knifes and that the process of course for everything starts with the feet from Allah, Allah, Allah guides whom what is the sign of that trophy for us? That you are here
that you are here that means a lot more than I wanted you to hear something about it.
That you come to the masjid I mean how many Muslims are then Heather about I have no idea.
But some that Allah chose so you must thank Allah subhanaw taala for that when ceccato if you thank Allah, tala then Allah Subhana Allah will increase it for you. So if we want to grow in our Deen we must always thank Allah and the best way to thank Allah subhanaw taala is what you act upon what you know then Allah subhanaw taala will teach you what you do not know.
But if you just accumulate information oh this was interesting Mashallah good talk Mashallah, this. I felt good. Dean is not about feeling good. That's a bonus that will come to you. Because when you grow in, then you will get that peace of mind that no Italian cars can give you.
It's very, very important and this has to be experienced.
So my god has been sitting
for 20 years, I think it's been driven twice. And it's kept there as a relic to remind me of my time of journey.
And I pledge in front of you that when I get the right buyer for it, all of the money that comes from that will be donated to standard bearers Academy inshallah.
Getting back to our topic
that's already gone.
is where it all starts, Allah subhanaw taala gives us knowledge. You know, in the English language, it says ignorance is what is bliss. Ignorance is bliss. If you tell that to a CEO, let all your people be ignorant, they'll be very happy. Would you accept that? In Islam, ignorance is never bliss
is a means of bliss. And truth is what it's not information, okay? It is some What is the meaning of we classify him as
one that benefits and and that does not benefit. So what is considered beneficial and that knowledge that takes you closer to Allah that takes you to your destination, you want to reach a loss of habitat. So any knowledge that helps you with that is beneficial. And anything that doesn't it takes you away from that is harmful.
You read about philosophies and psychologies and things that corrupt people I just heard yesterday, somebody said, Oh, he is a follower of Socrates.
Ellman lie, in fact, take people away from a loss.
Somebody studying this, somebody said anything that takes you away from Allah subhanaw taala, even if it's, if it's not grossly negative, is a waste of your time that you could use in many other important things. Okay, so what is this, that's going to benefit you, number one,
why the whole creation was created. So you recognize your Creator
of Allah subhanaw taala, of who he truly is, and we can never encompass who our last one truly is. But only that which he has revealed and told us about himself.
Now, okay, so knowing Allah subhanaw taala is a robo via his lordship, his ability, and his actions that have created the universe. When you study all of these, when you you look at on the internet, and you look at the universe, how big it is, and how it's growing. And all of this, and you say, well, is 14.7, or now there's 23 billion light years across, and we have no clue of what that means. You know, that 300,000 kilometers, a second light is traveling. Okay? One minute, one hour, one day, one year, 14 or 21 billion light years. That's how long it takes. That's the known, that's the known universe. And also the lasala. Islam teaches us watch this summer, a lot of the lowest heavens where
these stars and galaxies are
this, compared to the next heaven is like you take a little hollow, little ring, and you throw it in an open desert. This is what the second Heaven is. And the second heaven compared to the third is the same thing like a ring in the desert, and the third to the fourth. And the seventh thing that we have, we cannot imagine we are talking about it because we don't can't even imagine the first one. The all of this in front of the kursi is like a ring in the desert. And the cars in front of us is like a ring in the desert.
How about the creator of the harsh
And then you see the beauty of his creation in everything, the perfection of his creation in everything. We just have to look
when I'm talking to you, words are being processed in my brain. billions of cells are firing I have no idea. A sound is coming out. You are it's traveling through here you're not seeing your ears are processing it. You have no idea. Messages go into the brain, that deciphering in different languages, understanding in different ways.
All of that going on perfectly, perfectly. The whole system of perfection. That's what we see.
In everything of his creation to inshallah, we are going to have a session tomorrow just to show us some of that so that we can think and we can look and recognize Allah Subhana Allah The first thing is the enemy of Allah subhanaw taala the perfection of his
creation has control over. It's not like Allah, Allah created and left things. Everything is in his control. Everything has a purpose, everything has wisdom, everything in all of his creation, everything is in touch via Allah in glorifying Allah Subhana Allah, except
the majority of managing the best of his creation,
except those whom Allah gives tofik everything is in harmony, everything is in obedience except
And all of them as well as Montana said they are among their nations, and they glorify Allah subhanaw taala and you do not understand neglect the birds or glorify the wind, the leaves moving the sounds of the trees swaying in the spear from everything which we consider animate in the rocks are glorifying Allah subhanaw taala.
How do we know that? Because
they were pebbles in the hands of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
and they were glorifying Allah rantala What's the miracle? The miracle is not that there are glorifying Allah smarter because they do that all the time. What is the kurama is that the companions, normal human beings heard that which we don't normally hear.
Everything is a witness, Allah Montana will make the earth a witness for us. The place of sajida.
Trees are witnesses. Mountains are where everything is a witness of what you do. Allah subhanaw taala has made a system of witnesses he knows he needs no one.
But he has created a system, we ourselves are going to bear witness on the Day of Judgment. For those hardcore people who will deny all other Yala they were we didn't see the angels. How do I know that recorded this? I don't know this thing was this. Now last one thought I would say okay, shut his mouth. Let the parts of his body talk. Then your skin will talk and your thigh will talk and your hands will talk. Every part of the body will give witness as to what it did.
And the person will say you are giving witness this is what Allah has commanded. Everything is being recorded. How difficult is it to understand the Sahaba understood it. Today we have video recordings, we have recordings of everything that human beings can record.
every phone call you made every text you send every email you send, where you go, when you go, everything is recorded by human beings by you know, secret services and this and that.
When I lost my antenna says that the earth
will bear witness today where is everything being recorded on a piece of Earth and a silica chip.
So we are never alone. We are always with witnesses, the recording calaman ketamine
therapy, it, recording constantly, what we are doing what we are saying every single thing is being recorded
to be shown to you. As a book we read every Friday surah Kahf. The person will look at his record. What kind of record is this? Nothing's been omitted. Everything is here.
And the person when he sees his record, there'll be portions in that book. He wants to be as far away dishonored does not mean there's not me.
Yet the last $1 so merciful, he says, even if you have
if you feel there's nobody who's capable of that I'm sure who can fill the space between the earth and the heavens with sins. But he comes to me with sincere Toba I will meet him with greater forgiveness and that this is my role.
When we recognize who Allah is that lm of Allah, His rubia His perfection, his names and study those
then and you recall his recognize his blessings on you at all times. Nothing else can come out of your heart except two things. Love hope before him and gratitude for him.
And then the next level of L is to look at that's my Rob
And who am I?
Then you look at the lowliness of yourself, this is what I have done to the rub who did all this for me. And this itself is also
a sign of
Allah's love when Allah tala love somebody
He shows to them
the reality of their loneliness of how bad they have been, how weak they have been, so that they may rectify that. And it is part of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala that he veils from a person who he really is, I may be doing all kinds of bad things. And I feel good.
Because Allah smart Allah has said, okay, cover his faults for himself. He doesn't see him. Why?
Because he will never repent that way. That's why last one tells us in the Quran about the big Titans like the pharaohs, of their times, that last month, Allah gives them more time and more strength, so that they may grow and grow and grow in their disobedience and disbelieving. And then when their worst, that's when a lot $1 has grabbed them.
So if we recognize who I really am,
and then what's going to happen.
That is going to be
how there is going to be fear.
Where have I been? What has happened to my life? Will I be forgiven? Do I have enough time left? Will I be able to persist and do this?
Is it too late all of this fear.
And then another one which is regret? I wish I was in the wrong race I was running
in the wrong direction. Allah smart Allah has given me this.
Then the person feels
the desire to turn back.
That desire to turn back that burst is called
an inner burst. It's not a word. It's an inner burst of the heart. Wanting to go back like a little child who has done bad with the mother recognize that runs back to the mother and cries clinging on to the legs of the mother. And the last one tonight is much more merciful than the Most Merciful of mothers.
It is said
that the silent Lamentations the crying of a truth are a person who is in truth Oba is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than the invocations of a Saudi
Rasulullah sallallahu is alumina beautiful Hadith that you all know,
tells us draws a picture of a person who's traveling through the desert.
All of his supplies on the camel,
open desert, nothing else. He gets tired, he sits down. He lies down to rest. All the supplies his food and drink everything is on his camera, he falls asleep. He wakes up he gets up, looks around the camera is gone.
And he looks and he looks and if the camera is gone, all the supplies are gone. In other words, he has the death sentence.
I'm going to die here of hunger and thirst ultimately he lies down to die.
After a while. He opens his eyes and he sees the camel has returned with everything on it. And in his excitement he jumps up.
And the thank Allah says Allah, I am your robe. And you are my slave. In his excitement. He doesn't even know what he's saying.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam says and he smiled when he said that this is what he said instead of saying, You are my job. I'm your slave. He says the opposite. He says Allah is more overjoyed with a person returning to him than that man was to see his camera come back.
So Toba is a real burst of the heart.
And the signs of Toba is a free flow of tears. That person cries in solitude over what they have done over the time they have wasted all of this life is gone. I could all those people have moved ahead. The caravans are almost at the destinations people who were with me. They got on the bandwagon earlier. They're free so much so far ahead.
They have reached mahkamah to the last monitor that I can never dream because I'm so far behind.
And that urges this person to assume to make determination that I am going to change I'm going to do this
The stronger the Toba the stronger that birth from the heart.
The more the cycle of the skier the gate of the skier opens without Toba. This is the gateway to peschiera. If a person does not have Toba this will remain a lecture, nothing happens, nothing will change, life will continue the same that Toba has to come and that is dependent on that URL of who Allah is, what his favours what he has done for me and who I am. What is my reality? Not what people see me. See, we make all these efforts on our exterior, you know, on the body look good. We look in the mirror every day the external image I should look good I should do this. I should do this. Allah Subhana Allah does not in Allah lie on the room.
He does not look
at your exterior. He doesn't look at you. Well, he looks at your kulu that is your inner image. That's what our title is that we are trying to how do I look inside? Am I beautiful inside? Or am I only beautiful outside? We for external beauty? What do we do beautiful clothes we adorn ourselves with good clothes, you want to look good? You eat the right food diet and you exercise I have to look fit and I have to do this and now we have gyms everywhere. So that you can look like a hunk. Okay, how much effort is made on that? How much
we need to make the same thing on the spiritual level.
regular diet of n. n booja exercise
regular diet every day I need to talk and hear about my Iraq. I need to analyze myself every day. What have I done? What have I done all my life? What did I do today? We take the hassle of all of that which we'll come to
and the regular exercise that we are coming to for the spiritual exercise is also called majah.
struggle because it is a struggle. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has called it the greatest struggle. Because in the Natal the Jihad the Mujahideen in the field is a one time thing you fight for a certain period of time. This is an ongoing battle tilters here is not a certificate that you know I attend record, this is an ongoing process till you die.
Therefore it is such a great Jihad and that moja
there are prescriptions of what we need to do. So when a person feels that true Toba, he feels the urge, I have to do something I have to change that is this moja
that I want to simply put look at my external I need to guard
the external things that affect my heart that we talked about the seven doors, the keys,
that I go to stand on the gate doors of my
heart with the sword of the heat, that nothing enters my heart.
That displeases my rump.
So my eyes are guarded from looking at anything that Allah would be displeased with. When I step out, I know what I'm going to see on the Billboard. I know what I'm going to see on the street. I know what if I ever turned on the TV, I know what I'm going to see on that if I go on the internet, it's even worse, what is going to come up even if I don't want something will pop in.
That I guard my eyes. Every time I lower my eyes. I know it's been recorded that he obeyed the law. So even though the temptations were there
not just that, looking with the eyes at somebody and thinking of that person, oh, he's less than me.
It's a major sin.
Yours what kind of sounds we listen to.
Now we have earbuds, music, constant music
backbiting all kinds of things. talking talking, talking, as we said yesterday, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, too much talk without the dhikr of Allah Subhana Allah leads to
the hardness of the heart and the furthest from Allah subhanaw taala is a heart that is hard.
What we are talking, you know, we're talking about giving news to each other without even recognized reality or certain said this happened to you know, this happened to this this.
Quite often it is backbiting.
Quite often. So while I didn't say anything we're listening to it is equal.
So what do we do we need to guard our years of what goes in here because all of this is being information is being processed.
And the ultimate in the hadith of mod, Allah Han in the end of this Hadees Salaam, Hadith, and
we'll just talk about the summary of it in the end Rasulullah sallallahu. Some talks about what is the peak of the deen what is the dispeller of the deen so on and so forth? Then he says Oman, should I tell you? What controls all of this? What is the final switch that controls or any talked about you man and Islam and Jihad and everything Salah says you know what controls all of this? He said, Yeah, Rasulullah Tell me, this is what you did.
He grasped his tongue between his thumb and his index finger
prefer Laika. However, if you got this, if you control this, everything will come under control.
That's surprising. And so Ahmad bingeable, the great companion said, Your asuna will be held accountable for what our tongue does. He said, may your mother lose you Omar means not worthy to be a mother son. This is one way of saying
there are more people is there any other part of the body because of the fruit of which people will be thrown on their faces into the Hellfire than the fruit of the tongue.
And that's true because we don't think of what in sometimes we don't. And this has been stressed by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in many a hadith.
There's a Hadith, the meaning of witches, that a person may say a word a word, can think it's significant, but which will make him thrown into the depths of the hellfire. And a person may say a word and considered insignificant, and his daraja in general would be raised. Because we don't think of what we say
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is described as
the do we you know, sometimes there were long periods where he wouldn't talk, for what reason to teach us the importance of that. So, one important part of this moja we have put down four things here that helped this moja is less talking,
guarding the tongue, obviously guarding the tongue from that which is haram first, these again, graded you know, you start with stopping what is harm, you know, no more backbiting no more no Mima? No more lies, even simple things. We live without thinking, you know, you just make a statement. Even in jokes, you should not lie.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told jokes, but never lied.
Remember that joke about the old woman who came? Yes, you know, so we'll pass on that. So
If we are constantly talking, if you're constantly talking, can you hear? If you're one of those who loves to talk, do you give time for anybody else? You are you hearing you're talking talking? You know in the acoustics there is something called signal to noise ratio. If there is so much noise all the time, how can you hear the discourses within what is your talking? What is the angel, the room telling you? What is the malarkey aspect of you enough saying suggestion? Because I'm busy? I can't hear those signals because these signals overwhelm those.
So finding periods of silence, talking less thinking before we say something.
What is the criteria? What I'm going to say? Is this going to be beneficial or harmful? If it's neutral, You don't say.
So after hearing menu, and we don't have time to go into, I can tell you a hadith about the tongue that too numerous to list. One student of a sheriff said to him your share after listening to all this
and can I talk?
So he gave him a formula which is good for all of us. He said whenever you feel the urge to talk,
And when you do not feel the urge to talk, you may talk now doesn't mean you have to talk
Kimiko now you can test this yourself two sisters and why don't use sisters because Allah, Allah has given them greater
fluency in speech.
You put three sisters together in a room and you let them sit there together for five minutes without saying a word.
it's like a punishment
they will stress out this What is this?
So we have to test it and this is brothers are the same. Okay brothers are
practicing control of the tongue first from the harem, then from the macro, then from the excesses, what didn't what is how is also Allah sallallahu Sallam speech described
few words with a lot of depth of me. This was one of Allah's grace on him.
He didn't have to give two three hours of lectures.
So again, we should this is part of that Mujahidin. Okay, I'm used to talking, and I like to be heard that's even worse, which is one of the diseases of the heart consumer like Korea, that my opinion, you have an opinion, you should listen to my opinion, because I am who I am.
Even though it may be completely useless, and then I insist on that I don't have the humility to accept somebody else's opinion.
Next thing decreasing interaction with people which is called halwa. Having periods of solitude for yourself very, very essential is one of the most essential parts of the puja.
And where do we have this? What did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to do even before they were lucky came to him
weeks of halwa in the heart
because this is separate if you're constantly bombarded with
with stimulation, this is what's happening. You know, visual stimulation, audios you have people talking talking this all the time you're busy. Where are you going to have time to reflect and think and reflect on Allah subhanaw taala his greatness on his favorite on you on the state of your own knifes to be able to do all of that to feel real Toba? You think, you know sitting driving through Abbott road you're going to be doing power?
No, eat requires time and solitude by yourself sitting by yourself alone. Many people feel antigen I can be I have to have something going on some sound. So let me turn on music. Let me turn on this. Let me turn on the TV. Let me call somebody.
So if we feel Russia, if we feel this sort of thing, In alone, being alone, that means we seek our solace or comfort in the company of people only there has to be somebody around Why? Because we do not find peace by ourselves. Because who we truly are inside is not so beautiful.
of course we are not in honor of intimacy and closeness with Allah subhanaw taala because people who have achieved those Muhammad,
they hate to be with people.
Because it distracts them from the remembrance of the last one from feeling that greatness and that closeness. And then some of them are last month Allah gives them this grace because of that, that even when they are in people,
their hearts are the last one and they're talking to you, but their hearts are there in Vicar of Allah Allah Rasool Allah Allah Allah Allah so even when he was sleeping, what what did he say about his sleep? He said my eyes sleep. But my heart never sleeps always in onst with lust even during sleep.
less eating we've just said one or two words about it because that's not good for our spiritual thing and less sleeping. These are four things that we can work on. These are physical things, less talking less intermingling, less eating and less sleeping. How do we achieve train ourselves for less eating by extra fasting psalms song, you know so is prescribed for you so that you may again want the philosophy you know who allies you are aware of him at all times? Less eating, less sleeping, how do you achieve that?
By getting up in the night, part of it 1/3
So and so some portion of the night for Cameron lay, and some of some people just cannot get up before. Well, before you go to sleep, at least spend some extra time in no less sleeping.
And as we said, less talking, these are two of these are more important, which is the halwa having time for yourself fine. 1520 minutes to start with. Okay, timeout phones are off. I've done my thing. I'm sitting in bahara facing tablets,
reflecting, thinking about Allah subhanaw taala. Thinking about what I have done, what has my life been making, and when we get into this on a regular daily basis, taking Maha Sabha and accountability of my, my, my day, and it's very simple. One easy way to take accounting of your day is just imagine you have a closet with 24 shelves in it. Okay, look at my shelf from 12am to 1am 12. Midnight to the What is there? Empty? Next one empty. Next one empty, every shelf? Have I put something that's going to be have some weight on the scale on piano?
Have I put something that's going to do the opposite? Or is it just an empty shelf
and changing that picture.
And those shelves of sleep do not have to be empty. Because if you sleep with bahara and you sleep with the
the eyes the idea that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us the recitation of the Quran vital could see and in the pools and the the end of of Surah Baqarah, and so on so forth. And that has to be far to mine. And the hours before you sleep. And you go to sleep with that is checking off as you are in Nevada. You're putting things in your shop, it's very easy, you're going to go to sleep anyway. And when you get up in the night, you do the vicar Scylla in
luxury, when you get up in the morning you wake the first thing you do is you do the
you know you start with those, the dials that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us then your sleep becomes an airbag
and the data in the same way. So taking an accounting of day to day and if you see something good on those shelves, don't pat yourself on the back say Alhamdulillah Allah you gave me the dough feet and you enabled me because Allah, Allah is the only enabler no matter what we do, we cannot achieve anything you should
confess your poverty of bankruptcy or fact or in front of Allah, Allah, Allah, I am completely bankrupt, I have nothing.
It's only that which you give me tawfeeq. So I thank Allah, Allah if I see something good.
And if I see something otherwise, I blame no one but myself. And if I still do that, then I go back to Toba. Yala, I intended to do this, but this is what I did. I beg for your forgiveness. And please help me in this weakness of mine.
over and over and over again.
with the rights of give Allah, Allah his rights
and give people their rights the Toba of our sinfulness and, and violation of rights of each other is even greater than the rights of Allah subhanaw taala it's very important to know that because we do that all the time, because Allah subhanaw taala or mother is or the ohana tells us that the demands the ledgers on the day of tiama are three, a ledger, which Allah, Allah does not forgive if you have come with that, which is
a ledger of your things which are last 1/3 doesn't care about which are his rights
on you. That doesn't mean you should give Oh, Allah doesn't care. So I don't have to pray. No, no.
But Allah doesn't take and the ledger which Allah Subhana Allah will not ignore, he will bring that and that is your rights, violation of rights with each other, that Allah will not forgive those unless you have received a release from the one whom you wronged. Part of that Toba is not Potala is not your loved and tobuy. cheated this person out of half the building's profits. I do, Toba. I'm not going to do it. Again. That is not sufficient over Yes, you're not going to do it again. But the tobei is give back the rights of those who you violated if it's a financial dealing very, very important.
That's where most of these things occur, give back
and seek forgiveness.
And then many times we have said things about people. We have to rectify that.
People said what if those people have died? Why give it to their children? If they have died, give sadaqa on their behalf say good things about them.
If you said bad things about someone say I was wrong, I didn't know they are as far as I know they are good. Okay. This is very, very critical.
Because there is no true tober till we have
compensated made those compensations that we have done. Then we have the ask people, do you forgive me because if they don't forgive you, you know what's going to happen? The move less of this oma the one who's bankrupt is the one who comes at the Rasulullah sallallahu. Islam teaches us the bankrupt of this amines, the ones who come on the Day of Judgment, not with nothing, they come with their Salah, they come with their soul, they come with the decree, they come with it sadaqa, all good deeds they come. In other words, they did all of those things. And yet,
all of those dates are given in compensation to the ones that they violated. And if that's not sufficient, those people's sins are given to these this person because this is a day of infinite justice. So we need to settle our accounts here.
Don't think even a little thing, everything Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the best of all creation.
before he passed away, he stood on the member and he said, I have given everybody
you know, compensated everybody for whatever rights they had on me, except abubaker hormones your loved one can compensate. But is there anyone here who feels that I violated some of their rights? One man stood up.
You know, this also said jasola one day when we were lining up in the battle line or in Salah or something, you pushed me
to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam steps down, he said you push me back
equal. He said this isn't this is not sufficient. So why? He said because you pushed me and I didn't even have a shirt on Rasulullah sallallahu some lips his his garment. And of course the man goes and and and grasps grabs him and kisses and it's a jasola song but I wanted the point is not that love. The hope that he had for us were lost and alone is solemn, that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam wanted to settle every little thing here.
And he was pure and he was sinless. Why did he do this? To teach you and me?
How many people will push away without tongues? How many people we revised it in different ways this, how are we going to now we can't lump it all to have done all of this. When you are in halwa when you are sitting alone, when you are in the color of Salah when you are in the hallway and Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will out of his mercy bring those memories to you Allah. I bear witness to the end of things you had completely forgotten of what you had done to people, those things will come to you for what the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala so that you must seek Toba of that, and you can compensate for that.
So it's not a lump sum. I've done Toba every should try and think what did I do?
That is true Toba. And as all of this in the majorda we make and the support structure of that mcgaha besides these things, if Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala always we had a football yesterday brief, briefly about the necropolis monitor, this is the cleansing agent, very, very essential.
And what does they could give you as we were reminded yesterday, Allah tala says,
Good morning. Of course, this is the ultimate I don't have to go into all the virtues of the curve. Because this is there it is just one Allah says, if you remember me, I remember you.
What an honor.
That's why you have in mind one of the the great scholars said, my honor and my pride in his Menagerie with Allah subhanaw taala my honor, and my pride is not in the fact that I remember you.
But my honor and pride is in the fact that you remember me
We should feel that when you are indicative of loss, if you are sincerely and not just counting and mind elsewhere and heart elsewhere, you will feel and you should be sure, you can guarantee we can guarantee you that right now everybody that is sitting here by name, of course is known to Allah smart and is being mentioned among the mullock, around the ash of Hamas.
That so and so is there and so on. So is there
and we are in the company of the blessing of angels because they surround gatherings where Allah Swanton is, is being talked about.
Okay, so we have to have your cane in what's going on, we do something simple. There are many various cascades of things going on in the unseen world.
There are minarets of angels piled up all the way through the heavens to the
vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. Very, very critical. Without this, that's why there is a practice that the shoe give us of how to start, what minimum of God you need to do. And then you build on that and you make a special with regular regimented things that you'd must do. It's like, essential for you for your, for your heart. This is that nutrition for the heart, that that carries you into the cycle and continues you into the cycle.
And you feel the effects of that you feel the purification. Because the skier as the cycle goes through, it cleanses your heart. When it cleanses your heart, you things you see things which you didn't see before, because now it's a little clear. And as you do more, now you see things more. Among those things you see is you see more of your mistakes, which you didn't see before. You only saw the big things. Now you're seeing more. Now you're seeing more. So this is a cycle. It's a closed loop cycle as it goes through. It's like clothes being pushed, put in the washing machine, you know, the more the cycles, the cleaner they get. So each feeds into the next, the more in we
have the more Toba we feel the stronger the Toba the more booja we want to do, the more thicker the more time I want to spend with myself the more the more I want to guard my my tongue and my son, so on so forth. And of course, as we said that nothing can be achieved without the permission and health philosophy. The
constantly doing God, Allah helped me. Yeah, Allah help me, help me when we do that. And we are just covering this briefly because of the shortage of time just to give you an overall picture. When that happens, then as we said, you're ill. Your understanding your head grows in your heart, the greatness of Allah smart Allah becomes greater.
Ultimately, the goal is to reach a state when nothing else exists in your heart except Allah subhanaw taala. So if somebody says something wrong to you,
they're not bothered by it. Somebody insults you for no reason he's been unjust to you. Somebody takes your property throws you on the street. You're only single last month I know you're doing instead of blaming that you're saying y'all
Did I do something to deserve this? Some of the scholars used to say that the day I caught disobey Allah one and their disobedience is not like our disobedience. You know, they're very sensitive. I can feel the difference in the way my wife talks to me and even my horse, that he doesn't respond to me, and I know that I have done something.
And sometimes, people remember this, one of the scholars said that something was bothering, he didn't feel you know the stickiness of the bulb. He was distressed and distressed and distress. And he kept thinking what's going on? Ultimately, in his dream, he said he had a flashback of something he had done 40 years earlier, and immediately woke up and he stood in front of Allah swatara Toba and then his heart went in peace.
So we have to constantly be sensitive as we say, as we go through the cycle, our sensitivity meter gets better.
You know, my shirt gives the example if you have a thermometer, that only shows 10 degree differences between each line. So you have 90 100 110
so if you have a fever of 99.9 is not going to show you that
Okay, because the meter is not sensitive enough.
Okay, so our sinfulness, the words we say the things we do, the things we look at, we don't we treat them as nothing, because we're not sensitive enough.
What this does is gives us that sensitivity back so that again, out of the grace of Allah subhanaw taala, we can turn back to him in Abuja. So, in the last few minutes, part of this module is to guard those seven doors, the keys, the eyes, the ears, the tongue, the stomach, very, very important. What do I put in my stomach?
How many people here are going to put porque no one
stole federal law. How many people are going to put thing that is not that we have no one? How many people are going to look and see that the chicken that I bought was purchased from money that was earned in a halal way.
A man comes disheveled. He has traveled a long distance his clothes are tattered, he looks like a beggar. He looks needy. And he's making long dogs in front of Baitullah and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, How can his dog be accepted? When his food is haram? His clothes or her everything about him is haram. For the dogs to be accepted? There are criteria if there's any Hara mixed in it. They're not accepted. That's the rule of law Swanton has made so we have to check what we are putting in our stomach. What where was it earned? All of that? Again that comes with that same sensitivity because we are caught up in things what has happened Allah we have to do our and change
things. It's all about change. Okay. We have to guard what you do with your hands what you take from people what you have taken your feet, where do you go to?
Are you in the casinos? Are you found in the bars are you found going to places of ill repute? Because the ground will bear witness and the feet will bear witness? Where did I go?
God that and of course God, that which Allah smart Allah has made private or private paths Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, You give me guarantee of two things, I will guarantee you gentlemen,
that which is between your jaws and that which is between your thighs.
Keep them both require have needs. According to the Sharia.
God your tongue say only that which is permitted, satisfy your sexual needs under the contract of Annika
then it becomes a sadhaka it becomes a hustler. Imagine that.
We satisfy our desires with our wives using hustlers recalled CS. Because why? Because otherwise you could have satisfied it by disobeying a lesson.
This is a last verse.
God those seven things externally, we have to guide things internally. The thoughts that come to me the impulses, and then the rest of us are shaitan gives idea, the moment it comes, we ignore it, we inoculate it sometimes enough gives those ideas because the knifes has become those lower no fuss, you know, if I do this, this will happen if I do this
negative things. So controlling all of those things with that scald maraca throughout the day you are you are watchful over everything, including not what you are just doing with your external senses. But the thoughts and ideas and desires and impulses that come within your heart and rejecting everything that Allah is displeased with. They will keep coming because that is the job of shaitaan they will keep coming.
But they are just like a seed that's strong.
If the ground is not ready for the seed, it will not take now if you shut down throws an idea and you water it by thinking about it and imagining it and this and that that's like watering it then it will grow it will take seed
Okay, so we have to keep shaytaan away. Shaytan is called What hanus? What is the meaningfulness?
It's like a mosquito he withdraws. When does he withdraw? Rasulullah sallallahu. Some teaches us. What does he do is if you imagine like a mosquito, he comes here is giving his ideas. The moment you remember the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. He goes away, he withdraws. He said, bad timing.
The moment you're going to reflect and you're thinking something is right back, just like
Remember the mosquitoes that come you do this, you do this this guy, you turn around.
You do this, he's gone, this is what it is. Now if you're in a state of Vicar at all times he stays away.
Very, very important. And sincerely, sincerely, especially in those special windows of opportunity with the RS are accepted
every day after your false honor,
at the time of Sahara tahajjud, last third of the night,
every Juma there's a special time
your melodica month of Ramadan when you're breaking your fast, there are opportunities all the time after every act of obedience.
most important guy to ask that summarizes everything. See Allah make me what you want me to be.
The rest is details you make me You want me to be your true app. You make me and it's only Allah subhanaw taala. Who does that? Imagine the CEO of your company telling you, you do this, you said no, you do it for me. He will fire you right there in the allies, the only Lord who wants you to do something and then you can turn to him and say Allah, you do it for me because I can't.
This this is his mercy, sincere the as at every opportunity, and very important to do for each other.
For the for your parents, for those who have passed away, because this is a very This is the weapon of the believer. The power of the eyes underestimated, da is always accepted as long as we meet the criteria of that as we said if there is haram and so on so on so forth. disobedience then the doors are not otherwise there.
And Allah smart Allah answers the guys in ways better than
what we asked for. Either with what you want, or something better, it removes some harm for you, or he stores it for you to be given to you in exchange on the day of
every and half certainty that you're the heart is answered. Sincerity, making full effort
outdoors, and spending time indoors, never being manager talking to a lot talk to a lot of hands on.
And there is other with Allah subhanaw taala there is there are manners,
some of the most simple of which is to be in a state of bahara. To be sitting, properly dressed, and humbly like a beggar, facing the people raising your hand. This is a beggar, you're alive nothing
as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teaches us that Allah
He feels shy of returning the hands of his servant empty when he's raised it, Lord, Allah.
And many times, just remember, you may ask for something and you keep begging and you keep digging and yucky, and it doesn't happen.
And you know what people do?
Sometimes there's about Allah didn't answer your prayer. It's important to understand.
When a person is begging Allah Subhana Allah and Allah loves to see that person in that state.
And when he loves to see somebody in that state, he says, Don't give it to him because I love to see him like this. Because if I give him what he wants, he will go away. It's like a beggar. My chef gives the example a beggar comes to your door, and he keeps knocking and he keeps asking, keeps asking anyway, it's the door is not open, he'll wait. He knows there's a generous person here, and he waits and next time he'll come. Then he waits and he waits and he waits weights and the door opens. Then the comes out he sees he gives him the 1010 rupees. And then what happens once you are given what is the beggar supposed to do? He leaves the door
sometimes the last $1 with holes giving you because he wants to see you at his door.
So don't quit. Keep doing keep doing
now is very very important. So all
This cycle goes on, these are some of the things we have to do, every day we make. When we sit in that halwa that time has to be spent in a certain way. We make certain conditions schrute macerata, that tomorrow, I'm going to do this, this, this, this, about my eyes, you can make conditions on anything all day, I'm going to make sure my eyes are guarded. Okay, this is my condition. And throughout the day, you made only one condition throughout the day you on maraca, you're watching the moment you've watched some something, you noted that I did the right thing or the wrong thing. At the end of the day, when you're going to sleep in your time of halwa you do Merhaba you take
accounting did I live up to the conditions of my contract that I made that morning. And again, if I did I say Alhamdulillah and if I didn't I do the foreign Toba and make the same condition again each part and every we start with that which is our own weakness, you know for some people, greed may be a weakness for some people the tongue is a weakness for some people something else is a weakness, you start with what you see what you because we have to analyze our own knifes and our own weaknesses. So, this is the biggest one and we work on that and you keep making that and you keep asking the last one till you have got that under control then you take the next thing
and so on so forth, okay, till you achieve a steady state and this is an ongoing battle, because shaytan will come because he knows your weaknesses and He will give proposals right through those doors which we have left open.
So, this is the cycle of the skier and
inshallah, tomorrow if time permits basil Allah we will talk about the disease of the heart, and the fruit of the skier what happens when we are successful in the skier, the two just to summarize one, we will feel that the actualization of tawheed within us. And when that though hate really comes in our heart, which we feel, guess what people will see,
they will see what comes out the fruit of that toffee which is called a cola
of how you act, how you behave, how you talk, how you treat people, how you deal with people, that is the fruit of this inner purification. Now I may claim to be, you know, person purified and if my o'clock is not right. It's not it's it's admit, it's an illusion that shaitaan has convinced me or you are good, if my o'clock because that is what people will see. That's why Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said something to the effect that he has been sent. Not just for that, in this narration, he says, just to take people to the highest level of Allah, because that's what people will see. And when people see that o'clock, what was going to happen?
They are so powerful, they are so powerful, that people will love you. And where is that going to come from?
Allah because Allah sallallahu Sallam says that when a person comes close to Allah subhanaw taala, to the point where Allah loves in the last month, Allah calls gibreel la ceramica jabril
I love Chef iava You love him.
And then gibril Allah Salam announces in the heavens to the angels, Allah loves when so you love him. And that announcement, all of creation is doing for you. Allah puts love removes those any remember the arch enemies of Rasulullah sallallahu is not what they became, they were ready to lay down their lives for him.
For who the one whose life they wanted to take.
Who changes the heart, the hearts that between sports men, Allah subhanaw taala changes things.
So if we achieve it goal is if you achieved through this, the hope of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will love you and all your problems individually, family community, everywhere national International, Allah will solve it's not in our power.
Allah will change the conditions based on the state of my heart and your heart. That's where the battlefield is. We have to take the battlefield inside
against our own knifes fight those lower urges and we purify ourselves, then Allah subhanaw taala out of his mercy will fix everything else that needs to be fixed.
So tomorrow inshallah we will talk about the diseases of the heart and some of the things of our o'clock that we need to
To to develop and work on.
There are actual steps and this is practice if we had time we could have some actual practice sessions of Vicar and so on. So, so at least, it's not just a theory that you learn, you sit in silence and you can do this, go home, sit quietly for 15 minutes, and reflect on your life. That's part of your homework.
God what you say, just that's part of your homework. This is part of that majah think of your life and think of who allies, the grid, there is nothing we talk about, you know, the Cabal are the major sins and the minor sins. There is nothing minor, there is nothing severe of our sins. When you think of who they were done against a law. They're minor from a 50 cents because compared to the major, they are minor,
but they're still
in every rump, every sin puts a spot on the call, that we are trying to remove.
So a lot of history of our thinking about every sin, everything I said thinking about personally What did I do? Nobody knows. You know, and Allah knows.
asking Allah forgiveness a lot of is still far especially at the time of Sahaba before the dawn,
okay, so inshallah, may Allah smart Allah give us the tofik to, to
act on some of what we have
studied here together, and to put it in action, and to benefit us and
help us to gain nearness to him and to be sincere in our effort and to help us out of our weakness and sinfulness. May Allah subhanaw taala
benefit me before you because I don't want to be of those who remind others and themselves remain headless. Anything that is good, right and correct. is from Allah subhanaw taala and from the back of the shoe, who have taught me and anything that's erroneous or wrong, is because of my lack of understanding my general my ignorance and the inclination of minus men last month Allah forgive me for that Subhan Allah Allah, Allah Allah
