Romans aka

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

Ramallah.

00:00:48--> 00:00:57

My dear brothers and sisters, we start with the praise and glorification of the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala your Lord and mine.

00:00:59--> 00:01:09

And we send the choices of prayers and blessings on his noble messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his family and his companions.

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

And may Allah subhanaw taala make us among those who follow them in the right way.

00:01:17--> 00:01:23

We ask Allah subhanaw taala for the purification of our new force for all of our inner selves.

00:01:24--> 00:01:29

Because Allah is the guardian and the protector of the knifes

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

before we start,

00:01:35--> 00:01:57

I'd like to see a show of hands, how many of you know about the skeleton knifes? How many of you have attended lectures or courses about it? How many of you practice some oral aspects of it, so any of those, so that I know what the audience is.

00:02:00--> 00:02:04

So a few sent to him.

00:02:10--> 00:02:19

So what I'm going to try and do in this first session, and in the last one tala put Baraka in our time, is to give you an introduction on this

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

so that we are all on the same page.

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

Let's ask a question what makes us human?

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

What makes us different

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

than every animal out there?

00:02:43--> 00:02:52

They eat, we eat, they drink, we drink, they sleep, we sleep, they reproduce, we reproduce.

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

So what makes us who we are human beings? Yes.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

free will, our sister says.

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

So let's go back

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

into the genesis of men,

00:03:12--> 00:03:30

Allah subhanaw taala out of his wisdom, then we are late comers in the universe. All of this has been in existence, they tell us billions of years, maybe 14 billion or 15 billion years, we have come towards the end of that. And Allah, Allah created a father

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

from clay from stinking mud.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

And he learned that form for a long time.

00:03:41--> 00:03:48

And then at some point, Allah subhanaw taala asked the angels to do sajida

00:03:49--> 00:04:01

to other Melissa and Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, when he did that, Allah subhanaw taala says, for either so way to hoonah factor, houfy morosely.

00:04:02--> 00:04:10

30 when we had blown from our life giving spirit into this the ruler,

00:04:11--> 00:04:20

then Allah subhanaw taala ordered them. Now you fall in prostration, and they all fell in such the acceptable ease.

00:04:22--> 00:04:32

So that's what enables us that till that material form was there, the angels were not asked to prostate

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

to do such that it was when that ennobling spirit the roof was infused into this was blown into this clay structure, that Allah subhanaw taala ennobled him as a human being and asked the angels to do such and we're not going to go into the detail of what that says that means. Obviously, it was not a surge of worship. Okay, it was just to honor him and such

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

has been in previous traditions, including the People of the Book is not as an act of worship. Okay?

00:05:09--> 00:05:42

So that's what makes us human. That's what makes us the best of his creation is our room. It's not our material self, we all know we are made of two components, that which comes from the earth, which is our bodies, which is satisfied and needs things of the world, like food and drink, and so on so forth, that it seeks and is satisfied by searching for things for its survival, that our earthly.

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

But what enables us our room has no need for food,

00:05:50--> 00:05:55

or drink. In fact, the room feels better when we are fasting.

00:05:56--> 00:06:17

Okay, because the room finds its satisfaction from where it came from a heavenly dimension from its connectedness to Allah subhanaw taala, because that's where it came from. So its dimensions of happiness and satisfaction and needs are not of the worldly things.

00:06:18--> 00:06:25

And that's why we find no matter what many people achieve of this dunya

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

they still many of them do not feel internally satisfied.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

Because the dunya is finite,

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

it's limited.

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

And its attractions

00:06:45--> 00:06:58

continue, they cannot be satisfied. So even if you keep gaining all of these, you do not achieve satisfaction. The proof of that is you always want more.

00:06:59--> 00:07:08

If you have a million you want a billion if you have a billion you want tell them 10 billion if you have 10 billion you want 100 billion, what is that proving to you?

00:07:09--> 00:07:16

That the root which comes from the infinite cannot be satisfied by what is finite.

00:07:17--> 00:07:28

Okay, that's why Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the most beautiful and simple way he tells us that giving us an example, that the stomach giving us

00:07:29--> 00:07:47

sort of signified by the stomach, our desires of the human being can never be filled. If he has one value of gold, he wants a second one. And the only thing that will fill it is depth which is the mud of the grave. In other words, there is no satisfaction

00:07:49--> 00:08:03

which brings us to the concept of happiness, we are all seeking happiness, what is happiness, if we define that happiness is the attainment and achievement by whatever you want to look at.

00:08:05--> 00:08:50

By things which are by its nature, for example, for the eyes, what is the happiness of the eyes, if you put a perfume in front of the eyes, or there is perfume in this room, you think the eyes will find happiness and satisfaction No, because that's not its nature. But if you see something beautiful, the eyes feel that for the nose, it's the smell, for the taste, it's food and so on so forth. So we have different dimensions of happiness, what gives you satisfaction and contentment according to the nature. And the happiness the real happiness of the bulk of the room is its connectedness with Allah subhanaw taala. And if it is not connected with Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

nothing else can fill that void.

00:08:54--> 00:09:11

And that's why those who are not connected with Allah subhanaw taala are always looking for more toys to fill that void and that void will never be filled. Okay? If you're looking for happiness, where it is not placed, we are not going to find it.

00:09:12--> 00:09:18

So Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he sent our father back

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

to this or sent our father to this earth.

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

So

00:09:27--> 00:09:33

what does that mean? Allah Subhana Allah created this earth for a purpose.

00:09:34--> 00:09:55

And He created us for a purpose, everything that Allah, Allah does has wisdom and a purpose. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, the answer to the question that everybody asks because it's the nature of the human being to know why I am here, who am I? And Allah smart Allah answers that in one

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

format to Elgin, il Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:00

Before

00:10:01--> 00:10:07

that I have not created genes for mankind for any other purpose except for my,

00:10:08--> 00:10:14

for my worship, and the worship is a very general term in Islam. It's not just your Salah, and so on.

00:10:15--> 00:10:25

So that's the purpose and Allah subhanaw taala created the whole universe to help us to serve that purpose of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:27--> 00:10:34

So our whole life here, which is limited, even if we let live 100 years, it's a very short time.

00:10:35--> 00:10:53

Some of us who are in the 50s and 60s, it seems like yesterday, okay, that we were little kids, you know, I, a week ago, I was in Lucknow, and I saw the streets where I was in college, you know, that's more than 40 years ago, and it seems like yesterday.

00:10:54--> 00:11:04

No, Haile Salaam lived more than 950 years on the Day of Judgment, he will be asked to just giving us an example. How long did you stay on earth?

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

He will say yom.

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

Oh, by the way, like a day or part of a day, in relative sense. That's what it will seem like okay. And none of us I can guarantee you will live 950 years. Okay.

00:11:24--> 00:12:02

Allah Swanton has given us a frame of reference that life is short. This is a we are not permanent resident. We are not citizens of this earth. Even though we say we have a permanent residence. So this is my home, this is not my home. My home is where my home is where my father came from, where my ancestor came from. And my whole life is my journey back to the home from where other Malaysia, where my room was created. Our whole journey. Whole Life is that journey back to where we came from.

00:12:04--> 00:12:10

That's why Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us he says, cool, fit dunya Calgary

00:12:11--> 00:12:16

live in this world as if you're a stranger, you don't belong here.

00:12:18--> 00:12:44

Or you are a traveler, that's even less he doesn't put his residence and he knows his destination is ahead. So how, what is this journey, and this is the journey for which all of the MBA came to teach us that this, we are like, has a purpose. It's to get back. I am here so that I can get back. I am a displaced person. I'm a refugee of Jenna.

00:12:46--> 00:12:56

And I need to get back to my home. You know, today throughout the world, there are refugees after 50 years of Philistine What do they want to do? They want to go back home.

00:12:57--> 00:13:04

We should feel a greater urge. I really want to get back home, which is

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

how do we

00:13:09--> 00:13:13

go on this journey. And that's what this whole thing is all about.

00:13:15--> 00:13:44

So Allah, Allah created this world, so that in this world, everything that we see are signs, whether they are physical things such as what we see around the skies, the stars, the moon, the sun, or things that happen events, everything is a creation of Allah subhanaw taala and everything is meant to help us know our Creator.

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

So the creation and by creation we means mean everything other than Allah subhanaw taala was meant

00:13:57--> 00:14:38

to unveil the creek creator, that you see the sky. And you see the creation of you remember last time when you say Subhan Allah Who could have raised these without pillars and nothing happens and this has been going on for billions of years, who created the sun with such perfection, who created this moon to show us phases of the month. And no matter what we look at the oceans, the mountains, the greenery, the creatures on the earth, under the earth, in the heavens, everywhere, everything from the smallest creature. Now you have one of these wonderful movies they show you about these little little creatures, things under the ocean, you know,

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

to teach us

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

the beauty of the Creator

00:14:47--> 00:14:52

in the ocean, some of the most beautiful fish in the most beautiful colors are there.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

And they tell us that they can see colors.

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

They're created to show you what Allah subhanaw taala wants

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

You to see that you say you say the moment you see that the heart that's pure, nothing comes up when you see anything. Only thing that naturally comes out is Subhan, Allah

00:15:14--> 00:15:18

Subhana Allah and it should come from it should come automatically.

00:15:20--> 00:15:32

Because the heart that is purified sees Allah subhanaw taala. Whereas the heart that's not purified, that same creation, the same thing becomes a veil

00:15:33--> 00:15:45

from Allah subhanaw taala an atheist, or any denier who doesn't see Allah doesn't acknowledge Allah subhanaw taala says the same thing we'll find a reason for it an expert or this is like this.

00:15:46--> 00:16:01

The earth moved Yes, because their tectonic plates and they are drifting apart and the pressure builds up, they will always look at the process. And they will not look beyond as who has made the laws and rules and regulations that such things happen.

00:16:03--> 00:16:17

And Allah, Allah mentions his ayat in the Quran about the creation of the heavens in the earth, the creation within ourselves and he says that I will show you my signs in the in the app in the in the heavens and within yourselves.

00:16:19--> 00:16:23

He keeps you know, the more Science Advances, the more you see,

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

the more you see,

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

the more you should be in all philosophy.

00:16:31--> 00:16:45

Why do we not see that because the instrument that is used to see Allah subhanaw taala has become distorted or cloudy or dusty. And that's our heart.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

Allah subhanaw taala talks about the fall.

00:16:52--> 00:17:03

So what I'm going to do is give you a schematic I hope people in the back can see this I don't know if it's big enough just to put some terms here because we are all beginners and I should also

00:17:06--> 00:17:18

tell you very clearly that I'm just conveying to you what I have learned from my shoe. This is not something that I have originated

00:17:19--> 00:17:38

I don't claim that I have achieved any of these goals or Ischia that we are talking about, I am just like you a married a seeker and hoping that one day by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala I will achieve some of this. And there is nobody who

00:17:39--> 00:17:59

and there may be many people here who are much further along. But today it was it's my turn to remind you and me of this. So it does not imply any of that. And especially with the introduction that was given it was a good introduction because what my chef said was that he has a hub of the dunya

00:18:01--> 00:18:18

because he drives fancy cars and you cannot have hope of dunya and hobo from last month on the same heart. So he's telling you this my state and then he's telling you that he drives fast and speed is equated with who shaitan

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

so he's telling you the right assessment

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

there are certain terms that we use in the process of gear and the word gear as you know comes from

00:18:37--> 00:19:13

the Zach is from the same route zakaat is from the same route means to purify to increase even means when you prune a tree when you cut certain parts of a tree. Why do you do that so that it grows properly. Okay. So now we are talking about this process which we'll get into, there are certain terms that are used, some of them are used interchangeably in some if you read some of the literature the word raw and colourbond Nef sometimes are used interchangeably.

00:19:15--> 00:19:42

However, some of the scholars have tried to sort of tease it out into different just for our understanding and these are not physical things within the body because these are all things of the unseen okay. When we use the word called, which is translated loose loosely as the heart We are not talking about the physical heart which is a piece of flesh as rasulillah.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

But we are talking about the spiritual heart which is in which is a dimension that cannot be described in material terms, has is somehow linked to the physical heart because Allah Allah has used that word

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

When we use the word roar, which is the life giving spirit that Allah subhanaw taala, or the soul as some people translated,

00:20:09--> 00:20:42

again, it's not something if the material world, it's not of this four dimensional world of, you know, three dimensions of space and one dimension of time, because it's not limited by time. Now, okay, when a person dies, we know the root is extracted, we don't see anything leaving, the doors may be locked, windows are locked, nothing leaves we don't see but it's gone. Similarly, when we talked about the nuts, this is again, our inner instincts, desires and things that we are going to talk about in greater detail.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

That

00:20:46--> 00:20:55

is, the sovereign is the King. within us the Kolbe is the one that ultimately decides, chooses.

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

And the tongue has two influences two major influences.

00:21:02--> 00:21:45

It looks you see the eye looking upwards because we want to put the roof in the spirit as up because it's of a heavenly dimension. It gets impulses from the root, which are angelic impulses, from divine inspirations Allah, Allah put certain things in, in your heart. And similarly, the color is being fed constantly by our knifes, our lower self, what we have made ourselves into, if it's a positive type of knifes, and the and all of these terms are mentioned in the Quran. Allah Subhana Allah describes three kinds of nuts, not some ammara and

00:21:47--> 00:21:57

and most of them are in Ocala. Samantha describes that. Allah subhanaw taala talks about the rule. Allah Subhana, Allah talks about Allah, Allah, Allah talks about Apple,

00:21:59--> 00:22:34

Apple, if you want to call it intelligence, where is intelligence, we say, well, it's in the brain, but it's not something you can extract out. Okay? So to understand this is the sovereign. The Apple, if you would, is the CEO, it carries out the what the PAL decides is and plans how it is to be done. And then it sends its impulses to the jawara to our limbs to our eyes, to our tongue to our ears, parts of the body, of how to act and we produce actions through that.

00:22:36--> 00:22:54

So this sort of diagram, you can understand that if we want to purify our bulb, and that's a necessity, because we mentioned this in the hood by yesterday, that Ibrahim Ali Salaam in his dog

00:22:56--> 00:23:14

to Allah subhanaw taala. He says, well, Otto xinyi, Yama, Yama, foon, Oh Allah, do not disgrace me and dishonor me on the day when you will raise them, when you will raise us the Day of Resurrection. Then he defines this day by saying yo mala Manu.

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

A day in which all of our worldly possessions he summarizes them into things, wealth, and children.

00:23:24--> 00:23:31

Because all of our struggles generally is for these two, that they will not benefit.

00:23:34--> 00:23:39

The wealth will not benefit, as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

the meaning of the Hadith is

00:23:44--> 00:24:05

that your wealth is only that which you have used, or sent for the morrow for tomorrow, by giving inside the current spending in the right ways. The rest of what you call your wealth, I am worth $1 billion is not yours that belongs to your inheritors. It's not yours.

00:24:06--> 00:24:16

And what greater loss is for a person to have all of that? Never use it, but on the Day of Judgment have to answer for it also.

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

We call that a double whammy,

00:24:21--> 00:24:27

then benefits in the dunya and becomes an other on the Day of Judgment, because you have to answer for that.

00:24:28--> 00:24:34

Among the Ashura, Mo Bashara, the 10 close companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

There were some very wealthy people, one of whom was a rough man is now

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam once saw. And he told me now that I saw that my companions because Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, these time, things, dimensions were changed as you know, he was showing things that are going to happen which

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

His future for us, like the gentleman in the north and people in the jungle and people in the north. He says you were you took so long to come from judgment into Jenna that I got concerned.

00:25:14--> 00:25:18

He said y'all rasulillah I had to give accounting for all of my wealth.

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

You know, another narration after Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had passed away, I

00:25:25--> 00:25:51

wonder there was a lot of turmoil in in Medina, you know, whenever these big caravans used to come, you know, there was you know, all of excitement. And our mother I shadow the Allah one. He said, What's going on? said the caravan from Syria has come up the man's caravan it's bigger than this loaded with this. And she just remarked, he said, I heard the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam said that he will enter Jannah crawling on his knees.

00:25:53--> 00:25:55

To someone went and told of the planet now,

00:25:56--> 00:26:07

that this is what our mother has said. So he came he left everything he came, he said, All momineen I heard this he said yes, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said this about you.

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

So he went back, took the whole caravan give the whole thing in South Africa.

00:26:15--> 00:27:03

Because he understood the what that meant was he would have to give an accounting and this is from people who have been given the Bashara agenda. So no wealth is going to benefit. No children will benefit. And we know on that day people as a last $1 gives us that scene, that they will turn away mothers from their children, children, mothers and fathers and you know the ones you say you are my beloved you are this and my love and you know my valentine and whatever else you want to use, completely disowned because it's a day of enough. See, this is the status of the ambia Nazi Nazi mee mee mee, the ultimate day of selfishness of self preservation, because they're so scared. Nobody

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

will benefit

00:27:05--> 00:27:32

Illa one up online because I've been sending except one, the only thing that benefits is you go back to Allah with that calm that is sound selling, selling means completely, completely preserved and sound from all traces of the ship in every form with nothing but pure the heat in it.

00:27:33--> 00:27:47

And how is that going to happen that's what this whole struggle is that the things that affect that state of the heart, because of that is completely selling sees things exactly for what they are.

00:27:49--> 00:27:57

Now Okay, when we talked about looking at the if the signs of Allah and Allah and His creation, called that the Salim sees Allah subhanaw, taala and everything.

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

Everything that happens to me, good and bad,

00:28:03--> 00:28:13

are called that a sunny sees that and sees the real meaning behind it. You know, this world is a place of trial of

00:28:15--> 00:28:37

a cult that whose eyes are clear, can see through the dust of the fitness of this fitness coming. I know what it means. Even if it's the ultimate fitness of the gel, a curb that is saline will see on the forehead of the gel Kapha nobody else will see it. It's not the physical eyes that the same.

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

It's the hearts.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

So our whole effort is

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

to take back to Allah subhanaw taala a heart with which he sent us

00:28:53--> 00:29:03

pure from everything except the greatness and glory of Allah Subhana Allah the real hate, though he is not a word.

00:29:04--> 00:29:20

Sufi, there's not a definition I can ask and everybody will give you the heat means this it's the oneness of life. This is the absolute oneness of Allah subhanaw taala that and so on so forth and his rubia and his oluwo here and his smell suffer, those are still definitions.

00:29:24--> 00:29:43

The real towhid is that the heart sees only Allah subhanaw taala in its way, in its own way and recognizes Allah when Allah gives the example of this in the eye of noon in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala describes the heart of how any describe this shining clear glass.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

You see when you look in a mirror, if it's nice and shiny, what does it show you it shows you exactly the image as to what it is. Now if you make it concave, I'm going to look smaller than I am if you make it convex

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

I'm going to look bigger than I am, if you make a distorted, I may look like a monster.

00:30:06--> 00:30:34

If there's dust settle on it, you say it looks like there is a human being behind. That's the state of our globe, that we see things according to the state of our hearts in another way, simple example, if you put on sunglasses that are red, what are you going to see, everybody's going to look watch red, you put on green, you are going to see things through the lens of your heart.

00:30:35--> 00:30:41

If my heart is so corrupt, and it has a disease, for example of lying.

00:30:44--> 00:30:59

Now, you can bring a Siddiq or the Allah Han in front of me, and he says something because of the lens inside me, I'm going to think what he's lying. Because that's all I know. I know, I lie that everybody else lies.

00:31:02--> 00:31:11

So we need to bring ourselves at that level of balance, where things aren't exactly as they are.

00:31:13--> 00:31:35

That's why some of the scholars have described the state of the cult, as some of you may have seen, if you've ever been on a lake, when there is no wind, and no boats, it's completely still like glass. And I actually have pictures of things like that. And you can see all the mountains and all the trees as if it's a mirror.

00:31:37--> 00:31:49

Because it's reflecting reality as it is the reality of the world. And you go when there is a lot of turbulence, there are waves and winds and you know, choppy, you can't see anything.

00:31:51--> 00:32:12

And that's what our lives are either you can have a life of tranquility like a still lake where everything is clear to you and therefore you you know what it is, or it's in a state of turbulence and turmoil and stress and depression and anxiety and suicide and all of those things. It all depends on our inner state.

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

going to talk a little bit about the characteristics of the knifes

00:32:30--> 00:32:54

if you're going to use the word knifes, as our cell phones or our desires or our instincts, Allah subhanaw taala having made us from play has put worldly needs and instincts within us, the moment the child is born, every hour and a half the child is crying, because there is an instinct of hunger

00:32:55--> 00:33:07

and thirst and comfort and so on so forth. So these are things that we have these unnecessary, but they need to be regulated. So

00:33:08--> 00:33:27

there is the lowest level of the knifes the animal like knifes which we can call animal or capital like knifes or Brahimi Nussle behemoth. Like capital, what is the life of a cat likely said four things a cat, a cow or a goat will spend its time in four things.

00:33:28--> 00:33:43

Eating, drinking, sleeping or reproducing, there's nothing else they're not talking politics. They're not going they don't have entertainment, this is their entertainment, this is their life. However, what they don't do,

00:33:45--> 00:34:02

they're not thinking of taking over the next wrench. They're not thinking of killing people and things like that this is the basic things. So if our 24 hour life is spent looking for food, drink,

00:34:03--> 00:34:08

sleep and satisfying sexual desires.

00:34:09--> 00:34:11

We are exactly like

00:34:12--> 00:34:12

cats

00:34:15--> 00:34:33

Okay, now we said that these are our needs when they become unregulated, okay, when that becomes my goal, that I have to have this I have to have eat and eat and eat, then my stomach becomes like that of a cow.

00:34:35--> 00:34:36

Right?

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

And so on so forth without going into further details. That's one level. And again, why are we talking about this in the process of this here, I have to tell you this also is not for learning and teaching and lectures like I am doing. It is for me to reflect and from my correction. I'm not here to correct you.

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

I'm just here to remind you and remind myself so that I may act on it this is not Oh, I'm listening to this, I have to go and tell my friend she needs to do this or he know I need to do this is for me to have this standard here and see where do I fit

00:35:18--> 00:35:32

if 99% of my time is in the pursuit of these four things, which is what is in the West and now becoming here, the same thing, then I should say I have a bohemian knifes

00:35:35--> 00:35:56

the next level lower than that or worse we are using that is what is called several enough's are predatory knifes means there are animals that do the same for things, but they do something more. And they are killing like wolves and hyenas and tigers, they're also killing others.

00:35:57--> 00:36:18

So if I have that trait, also wanting to harm others, and I don't care, the wolf will not kill one too satisfied if if a wolf is left let loose in whatever you call it the place where the where the cows are or the sheep it will contend it will only eat one.

00:36:19--> 00:36:27

So if my desire is Let me wipe out the competition. That's what we do in the corporate world, right?

00:36:29--> 00:36:33

If my desire is that I don't care about anybody else,

00:36:35--> 00:36:36

even if I have to harm them.

00:36:38--> 00:36:47

Then I have more than a behemoth enough's I have a predatory or sebree or a hyena like nuts.

00:36:48--> 00:36:57

And then lowest lower than that is a shade on enough's. What are the characteristics of shape on deception?

00:36:58--> 00:37:12

Wanting to make laws and rule rule the hearts of people. So if I'm among those who says, well, Allah says this, and I say yeah, he says this, but

00:37:14--> 00:37:21

I don't accept this. I don't understand this. Allah says this, this law of the Sharia is unjust.

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

And we hear this unfortunately, from some Muslims.

00:37:29--> 00:37:36

I don't believe in the sooner I only believe in the Quran sounds words of ignorance. Now Allah guide all of us.

00:37:38--> 00:37:53

So that is a sub shaitan enough. That's the worst because what is the job of shaitaan? What did he promise Allah subhanaw taala. He said, I will come from in front and from behind and from here and there and

00:37:54--> 00:38:00

to do what? To lead them astray to deceive them. What did he do to our father?

00:38:01--> 00:38:16

He didn't say I've come to deceive you. He said I am those who give nasi ha I have come to give you good advice. I want the best for you. You will be like angels. This will be good for you. See, no problem.

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

Laffy mushkin it.

00:38:21--> 00:38:33

deception. And now what does he do the same thing? Yet Allah subhanaw taala out of his mercy has not given the shaitaan any power over us. He has zero power.

00:38:34--> 00:38:38

The only thing he is capable of doing is what

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

is introducing an idea.

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

In llama, he puts a little seed he throws a little whisper was was

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

what do you think of this?

00:38:56--> 00:38:58

If you do this, you could be a billionaire.

00:39:00--> 00:39:03

See that beautiful woman go there just blends.

00:39:05--> 00:39:09

He knows how to shape and come to us.

00:39:11--> 00:39:19

Because this this fortress of the bulb, which we have to guard is like a fortress has gates.

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

And the gates have keys.

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

So if you hand

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

don't control these keys, one key is

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

the eyes.

00:39:34--> 00:39:47

If you don't God and Allah one time specifies that in the Quran, I mean, it's that important. believing men believing women guard your eyes, lower your eyes. Why? It's just a glance.

00:39:48--> 00:39:49

Just a glance.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

One of the cousins of, of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was sitting behind him now imagine the scene sitting behind the front

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

officinalis alimony scandal imagine is, you know, I always think of that his chest must be against the back of Rasulullah sallallahu listen on the camera like this.

00:40:09--> 00:40:13

He was the son of not Abdullah Nimbus, but one of his brothers.

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

And they stopped and there was

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

a young woman who came to us something.

00:40:21--> 00:40:29

And so this young man is looking at her. And Rasulullah sallallahu Listen, takes his hands and puts it in front of his eyes in a beautiful way.

00:40:32--> 00:40:39

For what? To protect him from what the shaytaan would give, if we don't God our eyes.

00:40:40--> 00:41:17

And today, this is very, very critical, not just for our brothers, which it's even more critical, but for our sisters because Allah, Allah mentions both believing men and believing women who are yours. Today, we assault our visual senses. Last one dollars per 130 million receptors. Yeah, 130 million, each one to give you a picture and see his science. And we've sit in front of TV, but there is all kinds of fashion, one current every act of disobedience and we spend hours looking at it.

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

Do you think it has no effect on you?

00:41:23--> 00:41:30

That is seriously damaging to the cult. Because it stimulates the lower knifes

00:41:32--> 00:41:42

even if you're just looking at food channels 24 seven, how to cook What does it do? It stimulates what part of your nerves?

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

Anybody remember?

00:41:45--> 00:42:01

The cat like that behind me because appetite. I need to eat this. I need to eat this I need to eat this. Whereas What does Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam teach us that the worst vessel the worst container that you can fill? Is your stomach.

00:42:04--> 00:42:26

With all due respect to our beloved people, I have invitations every day to eat somewhere and four meals a day. I'm used to one and a half meal a day. This is the Ikram but it's is sometimes it's a punishment, because how much can you and then they say eat more out of their love, of course, eat more. It's just one week it's fun,

00:42:27--> 00:42:29

but it is spiritually harmful.

00:42:31--> 00:42:45

So, inshallah after hearing this, our hosts will not insist on eating more tasty a little bit in shock. What's the rule for eating? What is the sooner rule for eating? Can anybody tell me

00:42:46--> 00:42:47

1/3

00:42:51--> 00:42:58

Okay, how many agree with that 1/3 food 1/3 drink and 1/3 air how many agree with that? Raise your hand

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

and the rest disagree then you tell me

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

do you know this is the last part of the

00:43:09--> 00:43:16

what is the beginning of the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says it is sufficient

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

lokomat a few bites of food.

00:43:23--> 00:43:50

To keep the back straight. He says that sufficient back straight means to give you enough strength that you don't feel weak. But if you must eat more than that, then the supplies 1/3 food. That's the upper limit. We take that as the norm or the lower limit. And of course we don't stop at that. And I'm talking about myself, especially in the last week or

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

so.

00:43:56--> 00:44:13

Do these physical things have some impact that we do on the color? Absolutely. What is the proof of that? Let me take an example. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us to do widow What are we doing? Washing watch

00:44:15--> 00:44:21

external limbs face. What does he tell us is the effect of this.

00:44:23--> 00:44:24

What is the Fabiola what

00:44:27--> 00:44:31

he washes away your sins are since physical

00:44:35--> 00:44:59

cinza internal is not something physical. What he is teaching us that what you do outside has an effect on the inside. That's why we are recommended and I recommend if you take nothing from this whole thing is to practice one thing is to be in a state of bahara of woowoo at all times. Try your best

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

Why? Because when you are particular about your external taharah, it will have an impact on your internal bahara. Simply speaking, when you're conscious you are in Volvo you're conscious of a loss Mandela when you're going to do something, you remind your you're reminded by that I am in a state of purity, because it gives you internal purity So, and we know the story of

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

Billa rhodiola.

00:45:29--> 00:45:39

That something to the effect the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, or Bilaal? What do you do? Because I heard your footsteps ahead of me in general, he said, Yes, I am nothing special.

00:45:40--> 00:45:45

All I do is when I lose my heart, I make what do I do to the castle and that's all.

00:45:47--> 00:45:58

So it's important. Similarly, these external things are important. What does Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam teachers about Salah when we stand in salah and he was very particular.

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

He said stand

00:46:02--> 00:46:09

shoulder to shoulder ankle to ankles without gaps, why? Otherwise what would happen?

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

And what else?

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

It will make your hearts

00:46:18--> 00:46:20

deviate from each other.

00:46:21--> 00:46:42

standing shoulder to shoulder and what has it got to do with the club? Again telling you that what we do externally has an impact on what goes on internally. So there are many things that we are taught by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and they have an impact on our knifes and our culture.

00:46:46--> 00:46:56

The kind of nuts that we are trying to develop is what is an Angelica Mullah echinops which only gives you

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

ideas

00:47:00--> 00:47:47

that are beautiful. Have reminders about Allah subhanaw taala about that attracts you towards Allah subhanaw taala that invites you to a nuts that's like that is always looking to please Allah subhanaw taala and that's always looking to be closer to Allah subhanaw taala so these are all characteristics that the knifes has the potential of developing, and it doesn't have to be that I'm only one type of knifes I have combinations of these things and moments I may have a malarkey impulse at other times I may have a shape on impulse. So what is the process of Ischia to knifes is we are trying through this process is to eliminate the shape on the aspect of the knifes to

00:47:47--> 00:48:06

eliminate the predatory the knifes that harms others to regulate not eliminate the behemoth cat like because those are our needs, bring it within the Sharia and to enhance and develop those the angelic the Maliki type of nuts
