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

Thanks

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

for coming to learn on Lalani level Hamlin has an internal Jimmy Dore she's doing a lot more medical help with the male shadow animal from the dorsal modular robots and in Ireland.

00:00:15--> 00:00:27

When asked about how did you become involved in Corolla, originating from Addis Ababa Holly Vallejo Salam Shabbos morning OpenAM Fatimata Aquila Middleton's Bala koulamallah Children Now.

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

In the Name of Allah Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy All Praise and glory belongs to Allah Lord of the Worlds indeed Allah is deserving of the business thanks animals, beautiful phrases and testify that no one is worthy of worship of Allah though, without any partners to choose his dream King and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed his prophets and his servant that his messenger Allah azza wa jal sent as a mercy to the world's

00:00:56--> 00:01:12

that the truth, the words the words of ALLAH, the great Glorious Quran and the vessels of guidance, is the guidance of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sunnah, his example. And the most dangerous matters, the newly added management to their religion for every single one of them is leading astray that only leads to the fire.

00:01:13--> 00:01:23

And shallow want to continue this evening with what we've began in the previous months of the meal. So heavy series, right being in one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:01:26--> 00:01:31

And this evening, I'm going to try very hard to simplify it

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

a very complex subject.

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

And that is the subject of spirituality, the subject of having a pure heart,

00:01:44--> 00:01:50

as Islam teaches, as the Sahaba understood,

00:01:52--> 00:02:03

because everybody wants to have a good heart, meaning be a good person and feel happy about himself and truly be successful. All of those things are tied together, think about it.

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

And if you don't think about it, you think they're completely separate issues.

00:02:10--> 00:02:22

And humanity has always tried to figure out what it means to be a good person, to be someone that is happy to be someone that is successful to be someone that is genuinely pure.

00:02:24--> 00:02:34

Some people call it the purification of the cells, some people call it spirituality, some people call it morality, some whatever. But this has been a mission for humanity

00:02:35--> 00:03:12

and humanity is lost, they will not know how to do it without the revelation of Allah Silja. And that's why Allah Allah, Allah Allah said about his favor to humanity, who will lead the bad ethical mean our solar minimum, yet you are lay him he will use a key him where you are living on GitHub, I will take matter we're in can Omean Republic do not feel morally dubious. He is the one who sent amongst the unlettered the lizard, he was immediately sent to the autumn and the world after them when he was sent to those people.

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

A messenger from them, to recite to them His Verses, and to purify them

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

and to teach them the Book and the wisdom and they had been before that in clear loss, clear confusion,

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

clear misguidance.

00:03:39--> 00:03:55

And so we take from this idea and there are so many is in the Quran that are worded like this are similar, that one of the primary objectives of sending the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to purify the hearts of humanity is to bring about good people.

00:03:57--> 00:04:02

He says Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and Bill row has the hook.

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

Goodness righteousness is good manners. Once again, I tie between spirituality and being good why? Because he did some Allah Allah uses righteousness is good manners. That means with Allah and His creation is if a claim said that's what it means to be a good person to have a pure heart that recognize Allah and His rights and recognizes the creation of their rights. So that was his primary objectives. And that's why it was something of great concern for the Sahaba of the understanding of the Sahaba and why we study them is because they understood clearly that one of the main reasons this Quran was sentence with upon this prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is for the

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

purification of the human cell for the purification of human hearts for a person to be truly wholesome, truly, right

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

She's truly good.

00:05:04--> 00:05:48

And also of their concern with this subject is that they noticed in these if I said our existence all throughout the Quran, it's a recurrent message, we send to you a Messenger that recites you Our Verses and purifies you, they notice that Allah would always tie between the verses being recited and that purity being a team. And that if you want to summarize it is the secrets in the hearts of the sahaba. That is what made them who they were. And if you want to be also have you want to understand Islam and enjoy Islam and implement Islam the way they did, you have to look where they looked, focus on what they focused on.

00:05:49--> 00:06:00

They knew that if they look anywhere, but the Quran, they're going to be shortchanging themselves, they will be going to be doing themselves a disservice before anybody.

00:06:02--> 00:06:10

And they noticed this by the way, not just from the Quran, but from the one who translated the Quran into actions the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:06:11--> 00:06:33

I mean, his I saw the Milan who would say and the Messenger of Allah would be reciting Quran while his head was in my lap even when I was menstruating. Meaning even that wasn't a time in one spot per se he would constantly recite Quran day in and day out. And she would even say even to the point when I'm not in a pure state that wouldn't stop him that would still be allowed

00:06:34--> 00:06:49

as if to show us and to teach us sallallahu alayhi wasallam this Quran is to be rehearsed time and time again until those meanings stick in your life and you reflect on them and you reach that level of conviction that solid belief

00:06:53--> 00:07:03

because you could be a person that person that has certain Islam is right okay. But that doesn't mean your certainty can increase

00:07:04--> 00:07:21

didn't occur and tell us itself told us when Paula Ibrahim, Rob be led K for to heal notice. When Abraham says oh Allah show me how you give life to the dead. That's something that we have to believe you have to muster if you don't believe that, that Allah gives life to the dead.

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

God LM tells me Allah said to Abraham, Abraham, don't you believe? Karla Bella,

00:07:30--> 00:07:48

of course, I believe, well, I can live up to my inner purpose from my heart to come to rest me to increase his certainty on top of my certainty. Part of that is the content of the Quran. That's one thing, but But you may know the content of the Quran. And you don't have that certainty.

00:07:49--> 00:08:05

It's in part, the content of the Quran. There's another part two, and that is you repeating that content to your heart over and over again. You know, the silliest concepts I sent this to you before, when you repeat it, you start believing it. Right?

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

Slam services.

00:08:09--> 00:08:34

Right? When it's repeated enough times, people stop researching stop investing. They just believe it. Yeah, no matter how ridiculous it may be. So what about when the concept being repeated is actually true? Like the words of Allah. So in the most truthful of speakers, that is the reason why or should we say of the reasons why there is such a reward

00:08:35--> 00:08:49

in reciting the Quran. So we can repeat it at these meanings, we begin to internalize them. That's what the Prophet SAW Salem total Sahaba. That's what they noticed from him. And that's what they emulated they did after him, and that's why they became who they became.

00:08:51--> 00:09:11

It wasn't just by laying in the lap of is that he would recite Quran, aka Rahim, Allah, Allah and another of the temporary and they say we went to Asia, that will be Allah, Allah. And we said to her own mother, she's the mother of the believers, the wives of the prophets of the Prophet is the Mothers of the Believers. As dads are the representatives and his wives are your mothers.

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

They said tell us the most amazing thing you ever saw from the message of law hamlets Allah Allah Allah your system was recorded by a hacker.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

So she began to cry.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

And she said everything about him was amazing.

00:09:28--> 00:09:39

And then she mentioned one incident, an example she said he came to me one night that was my night mean the night that is my share. I spent with him that night right.

00:09:41--> 00:09:52

And he leaned with me in the bed and then he said to me, Oh, I shut the radiator up, buddy Robbie, let me allow me permit to me. I know this is your right to spend time with you this evening.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Permit me to devote myself to Allah who is like me to pray the nitrates

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

She said to him, I love to be next to you.

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

And I also love what you love meaning if you want to

00:10:13--> 00:10:28

even though I like to be near you. So she says he stood up and he began to recite, and to recite, until he began to cry and until he soaked his beard and his lap, and then the floor beneath him became moist with the tears.

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

And he continued to pray until the call for affection, the dawn prayer was about to be made. And then, when

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

they came to him, he said, certain verses were revealed to me this night. Waltz was the one

00:10:48--> 00:10:59

who recites them and does not reflect on them. And then he recited that last page and a half, gone in a few calls call me some hour to allow people to laugh at you in a hurry there is

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

a Latina of Karuna Maha piano followed in order to behave, which

00:11:06--> 00:11:21

was also the end of the verses indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of miton day there are signs for those people of pure thoughts, those that remember Allah while standing while seated and while on their sides.

00:11:23--> 00:11:34

And they reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth and they say, Oh our Lord, You didn't create all this without purpose glorified, you are protect us from the punishment of the fire.

00:11:35--> 00:11:43

He says Woe to the one who recites this and does it reflect on it. So part of the power of the Quran

00:11:45--> 00:11:45

is you recycle.

00:11:47--> 00:11:55

And part of it we said already is you repeating it and part of you is having a presence of mind when you repeat it

00:11:57--> 00:12:15

and also have a did that as well, I will work with so therefore we Allah honey would repeat the ayat of the Quran time and time again. And he would break down from it to the degree that the disbelievers would become affected by him. This is they noticed his attachment to the Quran.

00:12:17--> 00:12:39

And the famous story when the muscles are being persecuted because they wanted to leave Mecca and a man that wasn't a Muslim say that the Lin said oh, I will walk through why are you leaving mechanic? Is it your people are throwing us out? They don't want this here. They make our lives miserable. They torment us while we're here. They were persecuted, is it oh Abu Bakr, the likes of you

00:12:40--> 00:13:16

should never be expelled should not be allowed to leave nor be thrown out. Meaning they can't throw you out. Nor will I let you leave voluntarily. The likes of you are what give our our town word. This is a non Muslim who tell him this. And he said you come and you stay in my protection. He granted him protection. You gave him Judo basically went to the people. And this is a matter of respect that is known in tribal cultures. He listens, no one touched me. He's with me. Nobody touched this man. And then the windows around it was respected. So because it was safe now in back in the geography.

00:13:17--> 00:13:29

He would pray at night. Those who saw the Prophet saw certain break in an outer part of the house, but he would not be able to recite it without breaking down.

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

And so the women and the children and the elders of the pagans would gather around them. It was like a movie. Come watch this grown man respected man cry like a baby we think

00:13:42--> 00:13:48

to the degree that the other wishes begin, they got together they want to say that listen,

00:13:49--> 00:13:55

the guy you're protecting is going to mislead our wives and our children when they're gonna become Muslim.

00:13:57--> 00:14:04

So you either give up, you either tell him to pray inside the house, not pray out where he's visible.

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

Or we're going to disrespect your protection. We're going to override it.

00:14:11--> 00:14:23

They all agreed to do so he says it was all broken pray inside the house. He said you can have your protection back I prefer the protection of Buffalo. That's enough. And he left me for a time

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

on the same thing.

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

It was known about how he was attached to the Quran. And when he would recite sort of uses all the veggies they would hear his voice cracking and weeping in the west of

00:14:37--> 00:14:50

Darfur or read his biography very clear how attached he was to the Quran daily I'm talking about the daily attachments. Right now a lot of attachments. Not let me see how many I can keep up with it either I can throw it back on the shelf.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

If not all the time. I know what it was reported about him. And also what another companions with Daniel behind both of their biographies that

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

They would recite the whole Quran in there with temporary and longer guidelines from a 30 to a nurse, the whole Quran

00:15:09--> 00:15:22

and to the degree that when he was dying, he was killed. He was murdered by those rebels that revolted against him while he was there, reciting the book of Allah and His blood spilled on that Quran.

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

The Quran of Marathon Allah honey,

00:15:27--> 00:15:35

and I spent a long time I mean, her nephew, persevered, he narrates he says I would enter upon her in the early morning time to return she says on

00:15:38--> 00:15:45

in the Doha time, meaning before the noon, and I would find her reciting an im Sousa tool, so I would not I would leave her.

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

I would go to the market and come back, I find her reciting the same is still

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

and weaving.

00:15:55--> 00:16:17

And our organs obeyed himself. He would recite 1/4 of the Quran every single day, out of the records that he had on parchment. He would return one for the mean he would be continental for every four days, he will recite it from the book by date, and then pray it might be those ads that he reviewed, were those ad that he recited, he will use them for his nightly prayers

00:16:19--> 00:16:29

in Saudi Muslim law, and he said that the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, indeed, Allah raises people with this book.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

And he lowers others because it is.

00:16:34--> 00:16:45

So that's the secret tunnel Soheila right? It was that attachment that I just drew pictures of that raise them to a level that no one will ever match, because they knew where to get the greatness from.

00:16:46--> 00:16:55

You know, what's one of the greatest proofs to the effect of the Quran? It's how hard it is for you to grab the Quran regularly.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Think about why is it so hard?

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

Shavon tries to keep you away from that book by any means necessary, because he knows if you grab it.

00:17:09--> 00:17:18

He's He's almost finished. If you start reading it, he's on his deathbed. If you start thinking about what you're reading those meanings he's done.

00:17:20--> 00:17:27

And now you know why it's obligatory that when you read the Quran, you begin by saying what our oath of allegiance shaped one

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

of the greatest proofs of the potential of what God has for you spiritually for your own heart. How it can transform you from within, is the resistance you find inside of yourself to be a regular visitor of the Quran.

00:17:42--> 00:17:47

That should tell you enough how much has gone hates them how much they've gone knows it could do.

00:17:50--> 00:18:13

This is going to be an even harder one. Now, moving on to another part of the subject of also having the Quran how when you reflect what about these reflections what is the Quran direct us to that changes us? If I could summarize it in three points and this is really bad and wrong. Not only study the subject you only have one lecture for this part of the US will have

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

the Quran fills your life number one with beneficial knowledge.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

The most beneficial knowledge ever is what

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

was the most important fact you need to know

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

who Allah is

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

a third of the Quran is nothing but that.

00:18:35--> 00:18:47

Okay, so it fills your life with that beneficial knowledge describing to you who your Lord is. All of Eman can be summarized and getting to know about

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

and there is nothing in life like knowing Allah.

00:18:53--> 00:19:12

Muhammad did know as I used to say, I look for an who will stand with it feel. The Quran is the garden of the God conscious you only go in a garden. You just go and you enjoy one flower to another and you just enjoy the breeze then the shade and the colors then you relaxed a garden.

00:19:13--> 00:19:19

You those that are conscious of Allah, this is their garden, this is where they hang out, they hang out in the land.

00:19:21--> 00:19:49

Because they get acquainted with their Lord through his 99 names, through His attributes through his actions, even through his rules by the way, you know when you get to know someone and what he likes, you know more about that person? Yes. Likewise when you get to know what Allah likes the rules he made you get an idea of more of an idea of who this is. So even through film the studying of film the right way you're getting to know water Baraka water Allah.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

So the Quran fills your life with this beneficial knowledge about Allah and about his religion. And then it tells you about the people that have come to pass before you

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

It summarizes whole planet's history right what it's all about. It's the story of the heat and how people react to heat who single out in his life and live their life on a wild goose chases who live their life a runaway slave right a rebel without a cause. And these are everybody ended up in the end

00:20:18--> 00:20:32

what am I looking for her de la vista happened with an island there was a book called Island and we guided them we showed them what they preferred blindness over guidance case closed chapter finished next, right

00:20:33--> 00:20:38

and these two more says three messengers and then a fourth messenger sort of se right.

00:20:42--> 00:21:22

And we did they send us the angels that was it in Canada de la vie, Hudson Wahida. Right, it was nothing but one blue one screen. That was a torture that Allah says the one for a them for me, dude, all of a sudden, they were all finished. They were all laying down. Yeah, has gotten angry, but how regretful is the condition of the slaves. You read human history in this book, and how repetitive it is and how sad much of it is. So that's the first thing the Quran does three, it gives you it fills your life with beneficial knowledge. You know, part of the reason why people live a life that's so dark and so miserable, is because you're bombarded with information all around you, the billboard,

00:21:22--> 00:21:37

the commercial, the adverts, all different kinds of information, the opinions you hear from different each one of them takes a certain seats in your heart and the built for you and outlook on life, how you see the world

00:21:39--> 00:21:46

some more accurate than others. But in the end of the day when your primary sources information is the book of Allah

00:21:48--> 00:22:01

then you're living a good life. You're, you're on a good track. The second thing the Quran does the one that repeats the reflecting on the Quran, you'll notice something else, it will direct him to the deeds.

00:22:02--> 00:22:08

And that's the second component in the life of the Sahaba that made their hearts what they were.

00:22:09--> 00:22:14

They understood the importance of good deeds to reach of your heart.

00:22:15--> 00:22:38

So I'll show you from where they took it in the Quran very quickly. And then I'll tell you why this is unique in this habit, nothing anybody else. Allah says it says For example, Raghu RAM Baku, Allah Nicola Baku mandala Dean and public group da la quinta. Topo. worship your Lord who created you and created those before you so you may be conscious of him. So that good deeds are actually for your heart. The Quran tells us that

00:22:39--> 00:22:46

working is solid, solid victory and establish the prayer that's another good deed for my remembrance so you can remember me

00:22:48--> 00:22:59

could mean I'm one who saw that pattern to the Hill whom what is the key him behind? Take from their wealth, a charity so that you may purify them good deeds, charity for the heart to get

00:23:00--> 00:23:27

all like is laying out Allah Allah Who Howard and the metal how we're lacking in animal just warming the flesh of what you slaughter. That animal the sheep with a lamb with a guy with a gamma ray is not what reaches Allah, nor does the blood reach Allah but rather it's the piety of the hearts that reached Allah. So those are handled began to understand the importance of good deeds to purify the heart.

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

So once this special

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

humanity went to two different extremes regarding good deeds.

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

Some people said good deeds are not important isn't what's important is your heart. Okay?

00:23:47--> 00:24:11

Some people said we need to do these physical actions. But they forgot about the fact that these actions are supposed to make your heart better. So they'll go they'll do some mechanical actions. They'll pray three times a day, for example, like the Jews do, right? But they have no morality whatsoever. They have no god consciousness whatsoever. They have no awareness of Allah. They're not observant of Allah at all.

00:24:13--> 00:24:24

By the way, both of these extremes exist among Muslims. Even I'll use the example of the Jews here. And you can use the example of the Christian to spiritualities you come to church and you sing and you cry.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

Okay, now we'll go back and do what

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

others can do the rituals, they'll do the physical actions with good deeds, supposedly, but there's nothing here. There's no meat, no meaning behind

00:24:39--> 00:24:49

the horror and heartless that the good deeds are important, very important, but they are important for the purity of your heart. That's the point.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

So don't ignore the good deeds, but don't think they're the ultimate aim.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

And this was the Sahaba on Bali.

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

That's why they would pray the whole night

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

and still have excellent manners.

00:25:07--> 00:25:44

This is why he would give in charity would still be afraid of Allah subhana Modan This is why you find Abu Hurayrah on a battlefield with one Allah Ali, and the next morning you find in care of kitchens. That's what they paid for us when they cared for catches nurses live with the small cats. What kind of generation was this, a generation who understood from the Quran the importance of good deeds, so it says beneficial knowledge and good deeds. And the third that I would choose at least that they took from the Quran is the importance of reflecting on the world around you like I had promised I was reciting

00:25:45--> 00:25:59

the Quran is filled with instructions for us to reflect, to not be like cattle to not have eyes we don't see with ears we don't hear with the Quran pushes us to see this world for what it really is.

00:26:02--> 00:26:23

The Quran pushes us to see the Julius dunya and we after as FL and to size each one up right. And Allah He unless you study humanities, unless you study world history, unless you study human psychologies across cultures, you will not appreciate that balance the Sahaba were able to understand from the Quran.

00:26:25--> 00:26:28

Why there are some people

00:26:29--> 00:26:37

forgets outside of Islam, just take a look at the Muslims throughout history. Some people saw the fear of the hereafter as everything

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

as the only thing.

00:26:42--> 00:26:47

And so they did not contribute to the betterment of this world.

00:26:48--> 00:26:56

They just stayed there praying and fasting and doing the actions right. That helped them only they didn't benefit the world around them.

00:26:57--> 00:27:21

And then there are others. This is the majority. And this is us who our focus our sole focus for the most part just to be fair, the sole focus of most of us, for the most part is just on this world as if this is everything, and I'll figure out the hereafter when I get it. That's how we live honest. Right? It's not dead center stuck between our eyes,

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

but also have a when they listen to what Allah has guided them to.

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

And they believe that our work correctly, they saw this world for what it was, it meant nothing to them. But at the same time they worked hard in it to make it a better place because Allah told them this is a planting ground for the Hereafter you will create it for the hereafter Yes, but you plant here to harvest there. So for your hereafter you need to make this world a better place. Wallah. You also have understood this in a way that

00:27:58--> 00:28:03

shames us in our understanding of Islam. The two extremes we went off to

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

look into many Muslims think that you're not supposed to

00:28:11--> 00:28:16

be fond of money. You know, that's a wrong understanding of Islam.

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

That you're not supposed to pursue money.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

That is actually Christianity, whether you realize it or not.

00:28:25--> 00:28:30

Loving your money is something inside of you. Allah created you that want to test you with it.

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

Islam told you, you it's okay to love it. But keep that love in control.

00:28:38--> 00:28:44

So that you see that money as a test. Allah is testing what you're going to do with that money that he knows you love.

00:28:46--> 00:28:54

And at the same time, Islam told us that money is a tool that you should pursue. For the service of the deen of Allah azza wa jal

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

look at the 10 that will promise genuine.

00:28:59--> 00:29:08

Think about that. Were they poor? They throw their money in the garbage once they became religious and righteous and they embraced Islam. And what conciliate was wealthy or no.

00:29:10--> 00:29:21

He was wealthy is the guy that freed all the slaves? Yes, but the Allahu Akbar number two was he won't be or not. So he was well off and he wasn't rich, rich, he was well off.

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

Enough and we'll see wealthy or not

00:29:27--> 00:29:28

more money that you can count.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

Right? Ally if we thought it was not closing

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

now extremely wealthy

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

zubaid In our extremely wealthy Sakhalin.

00:29:43--> 00:29:54

But that didn't stop them from being the 10th promise, gentlemen. That's the equation only to have are able to do that when they listen to the Quran to reflect

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

on the reality of dunya and the reality of our setup. So because of the

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

I'm getting to know Allah and because of the knowledge that beneficial knowledge he filled his life with. And because of those good deeds Allah raised in many degrees, and Allah guided their hearts that imperfect spirituality that they enjoyed in this world and caused other people to benefit from.

00:30:19--> 00:30:39

Allah azza wa jal says the other party level Alina Hammond amico will Latina who to drink Madaba gentlemen raises those that will give any man among you. And those that were given knowledge, many degrees, the fountain for email now just the Quran, so it was because of their attachment to the Kuranda. One race to many degrees will mean you've made malaria.

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

And whoever believes in Allah, Allah guides their heart.

00:30:44--> 00:30:50

You know, when a person tries hard to, to have enough, Allah who guides them beyond their understanding.

00:30:51--> 00:30:55

Allah guides them to have a correct outlook on things.

00:30:56--> 00:31:27

He started seeing his big problems Oh, yeah, they're not so big. And the important issue is none of this needs to be given a greater consider. Allah guides your heart to see things to see the big as big and the smallest small, even if you don't have the knowledge, to know the evidence as to why this is big, and that is small. Allah promised that if you pursue Eman from his book, we're in Allah, Allah had the Latina man who in a suboptimal stokin, and indeed Allah will surely guide those that have the man to the straight path.

00:31:29--> 00:32:00

Meaning the mind of your heart is smarter than the mind of your brain. Meaning if you take care of this spirituality, you will be more intelligent, even if you don't actually think of actually this is according to that mathematical thinking we do with our brains, your heart will be quicker to get things if you just take care of it. And that's why the Sahaba look at them. And I'll be done in 10 minutes with a generation if you sit there and think about them, read about them for a while. And then think about the way they dealt with life. Really amazing.

00:32:01--> 00:32:20

The only the feared nobody? How could someone who lives with the Quran fear anybody anymore? Right? If your heart is healthy, you will be fearing anybody, because you'd have a proper outlook that I share with you anyone who have fear Allah, you know, hello, he sent a message salad and we will costs in the Battle of heart disease.

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

You notice it's that level of costs.

00:32:25--> 00:33:03

Sorry, Saudi Arabia, of course, is seeking this Muslim army out of Arabia, these guys who were just like herders, you know, camels a few years back, people that were nothing they were not on the map. They didn't exist. And Robert, Bob goes and he breaks Rome and Persia, the two empire that shared planet earth at the time, he tells his generalist commanders, I'm gonna do a bust. He says, Listen, fear your sins more than you fear your enemies, for Allah only gives us victory, because our sins are less than the sins of our enemies. But if our sins become more than their armies, bigger

00:33:05--> 00:33:40

units then look at the way he's looking at things and this is exactly what happened. They were conscious of Allah, they knew there is no mind or power except by Allah, they internalize it, they were certain of it. And that's why Allah azza wa jal casts fear into the hearts of their enemy, this little logic, cause that generations to put a stamp on this earth and push this home forward with momentum that live with that very week. Even when they were doing nothing, they were still feeding off of the balance of those who have for 1000 years, their effects remains.

00:33:43--> 00:34:07

And it's not just not fearing anybody, they were not fazed. They were not broken no matter how big a difficulty we face in their life. Because of that email as well. I mean, consider the heart of Emraan no sign of the Allah Allah. I'm Lauren Hussain is the narrator of the Hadith and slightly boycotting the Messenger of Allah says to him or Milan pray standard and if you can see it and if you can't, then on your side

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

why? Because there Imran had an issue

00:34:13--> 00:34:17

with his body and he was very ill. He remained ill.

00:34:18--> 00:34:22

And in his bed for the last 2530 years of his life

00:34:25--> 00:34:28

matar RIF, Rahim Allah, He enters

00:34:29--> 00:34:52

upon this companion to visit him. And when he sees him in the bed like this, if the visitor cries, it says, Why are you crying? He says, because of what I see. And I feel bad for you. 30 years like it's an event, right? It's someone who spent 30 years in the bed, he's not gonna go, right. It's a great companion, right? They had to make a hole in his bed so he could relieve himself. But

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

he spent the last decades of his life like that.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

So when he saw an alternative crying out of pity for

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

This condition he says to live this great companions live with the Quran. These people he said I will tell you something

00:35:09--> 00:35:14

that you do not relate to anyone so long as I'm alive.

00:35:16--> 00:35:30

But perhaps Allah Who benefits you with it really listen to what he's not even he's worried about the visitor, the visitor is the guy supposed to make it the safe guy feel better. The safe guy is the one telling the visitor Listen, I'll make you feel better I'll tell you a secret. But don't tell anybody.

00:35:31--> 00:35:43

And I'm only saying it so that it'll benefit you meet so you don't assume wrong of Allah you don't make Allah is ever gonna wrong you, you know almost if he fears for his Iman for the event of this visitor. So he says to him

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

the angels come to me

00:35:49--> 00:35:53

and they give me salah. And I hear them greeting

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

and I returned their greeting.

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

And I know from that

00:36:03--> 00:36:07

that Allah Zilla jet is not angered with me.

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

And that in and of itself tells me that this is better for me than my health.

00:36:15--> 00:36:19

And whatever is more beloved to him is more beloved to me.

00:36:22--> 00:36:26

And this is an authentic report. This has been confirmed about

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

what do you see yesterday?

00:36:32--> 00:36:45

Saturday, we were close to the Companions. He was known Bravo's gave him advice and it was known about it because the message there was derived for him that history when he would pray for something it didn't happen. It's there I was accepted.

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

When he visited Mecca,

00:36:49--> 00:36:55

the people gathered around the Messenger of Allah uncle everybody go ask him you know, celebrity

00:36:57--> 00:37:11

so that people would come to him and he would make to ask for the make up for this please make the art for that and he will make your art for them. So the folly of Mecca memory hasn't failed me it was the only of Mecca at the time that the head judge he came to him and said Oh, son,

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

you make your art for all of these people

00:37:16--> 00:37:23

that are loved with better their condition. Why don't you make your art for yourself, that alone return your eyesight, eyesight to you?

00:37:25--> 00:37:36

He said to him the choice of Allah for me that he chose to seek away my eyesight for the reward meaning is more beloved to me than my eyesight I want my eyes but I want to Allah on small

00:37:37--> 00:37:50

there's a correct way to understand this by the way doesn't mean you shouldn't wish to be out of sickness. Right? But the point is he says I could make you out for myself right? But I'm content with what would happen I know that this is this is for me

00:37:54--> 00:38:16

what kind of people aside from difficulties in their life what kinds of people were that they actually cry when they missed out on good deeds. It's a very special artists. You know, Allah said records is a moron that these people when you when they came to you or hammered to carry them when they were going off to the battle. The Prophet SAW Selim this evil report. He had no camels for them

00:38:18--> 00:38:39

to well lower or you doing to feel mentally damaged. He has an allergy to my own people. They went back to Medina while their eyes were overflowing with tears that they didn't have what they could spend with their crying. They couldn't go risked their lives. They were crying they couldn't go to the battlefield with the prophets of Allah audios.

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

So focus so pure, they have this clarity they enjoy life because of it.

00:38:52--> 00:39:00

For the young guys, I mentioned to Hadith we are one of the species the hadith of Robbia. The communists

00:39:01--> 00:39:20

probably are going to cap was one of the poorest of the sahaba. And so basically who also have that were homeless, they came to Medina and they went to Medina they embraced Islam. Nobody took them in nobody could they live in the messages, they will ask, they would allow a day or two to passion so somebody brought them food some days they would be no food so they will have absolutely nothing

00:39:22--> 00:39:30

can imagine the stress a person will be going through that has no market and nothing at all. And he's hoping some food will come today. If not, we're gonna have to wait till tomorrow.

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

It goes without saying that probably Camus is not married.

00:39:36--> 00:39:44

Right doesn't have a place to stay because he doesn't have a job doesn't have food we'll get married from he said I spend time in the message. This narrative reminiscent of

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

the more elaborate narration references and I would spend the night with the prophets of Allah on iOS and the messenger was houses right next to the messages. I would spend the night there and I would stay by in case he needed something bringing his blue water bring him something I

00:40:01--> 00:40:14

I would sit there and I would hear him sallallahu alayhi salam saying Subhan Allah subhana wa he'll be hunting and Hamdulillah I mean, constantly thanking Allah so did remembering Allah Subhana Allah seeking forgiveness from Allah words.

00:40:15--> 00:40:23

And I'd always be and I'd stay there until I'd rather just go back to meaning go back to my corner and the messages or I would fall asleep at his doorstep.

00:40:25--> 00:41:07

Sleep would overtake me and I'm waiting for if he would have any before the night is out. So one day he wanted to repay, like you wanted to, you know, give me something from my sir. So he said, all of you asked me asked me for something and let me help you out something. How can I help you? Please tell me? This is like the head of the state. It's not the name of the message. This is not you know, the head of the Board of Trustees. This is not the governor. This is the head of this is the President telling you asked me think think obviously this is I was 1820 years old. Right? No food, no drink, no house, no wife, what's going What stresses you at? 1820.

00:41:10--> 00:41:13

So he said, I'm literally give me give me time to think about it.

00:41:16--> 00:41:23

And he comes back the next day, he comes back later. And he says asked me what I want to do something for you. And I really appreciate all your help.

00:41:25--> 00:41:33

He said yeah, Rasul Allah. As Annika, we're off of uncertainty judgment. I asked you to be with you in paradise.

00:41:34--> 00:41:40

That's his sole concern. That's what was what was the Quran did to them? It size things up, right?

00:41:41--> 00:41:45

He said, Oh, I'll be our daughter. Is it something else? Kind of more than that?

00:41:47--> 00:42:01

You know, because I want to be in paradise. It's important to get that out the way that's number one. And listen out. I want to get married man. Right. He could have said that. But his mind is so set. So locked on what the Quran lock the spotlight on.

00:42:03--> 00:42:13

So it was like one of the machete he was sick. It's as if you tell someone I want a million dollars. Anything else? Yeah. And I want $5. You just doesn't make sense, right?

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

So I'm asking for j is that not like that? That's what I want. I can't think of anything else. Right now. I'm having the same conversation.

00:42:21--> 00:42:51

So he says, for any Island episode because of this schedule. So help me help you with many frustrations, many schedules when you make sure you're praying and praying a lot to follow the obligatory prayers and then after the prayers, you will be asked and that narration I skipped the part accidentally. He said I thought that it was thinking what should I ask for? Is an I thought of my needs. And I said there comes to me what I already have. What's enough for me and there will come Meaning I'm not I haven't died yet foods coming?

00:42:52--> 00:43:02

Why should I worry myself so much about this world? When it's guaranteed for me? Let me worry about the things that need to be worried about the hereafter that was demanded of me.

00:43:03--> 00:43:08

We don't really have that insight. Our worries are actually somewhere else consolidated somewhere else.

00:43:10--> 00:43:25

So the Quran did all of this it made them bear the difficulties of life, not fear anyone be focused on the hereafter. See this world for what it is it's not worth being concerned about? What will you need to utilize it? Right?

00:43:27--> 00:43:32

for our own good, you know, I promise that something let me stop.

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

I have already

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

begun this, it's very important.

00:43:41--> 00:44:21

When I see they're very focused, they're very serious many times even me, even me, I used to get the impression that the Sahaba like if you had like a camera that could bring us a movie with us, I will look like they're very serious as they're not smiling and enjoy themselves. Everyone starts with the hereafter you know, Paradise hellfire. They weren't even serious about their good manners. Even serious about not burning themselves out me they had the perfect picture of what Islam was. That's what made them the perfect Muslims. You know, show them the team, you know what he says and our love made the halal things permissible so that they could help us with our religious duties.

00:44:22--> 00:44:28

to sound like I don't care about anything in this row. I'm not gonna do anything in this world. No, no. The Prophet SAW tell them like honey.

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he had wives, there was intercourse,

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

enjoying the halal for the sake of re energizing yourself for the afternoon. That was also they were serious about that two more I would say I will dress and I seek a reward from Allah for the time I'm asleep the same way I seek a reward from Allah for the time of week. That perfect picture. They got it from the book of Allah. Once again, just coming back to what we were saying. So

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

May Allah azza wa jal purify our hearts with his book and wash away the one of our hearts with his book and enable us to break our shape on and be connected to this book on a regular basis and to repeat his words and reflect on them until they come to life in our hearts as well humanity

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

questions within a subject

00:45:22--> 00:45:23

someone has a question.

00:45:26--> 00:45:32

So, you know how sometimes like names have like definition? Yes. Like,

00:45:33--> 00:45:37

does this like Gina and I forgot the name.

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

She had have a meaning of a saint.

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

Probably I don't know.

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

I don't know.

00:45:49--> 00:45:50

Yes.
