Simone. Yeah you
in Nevada can early
Lima operating glory belongs to a lovely thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness and his protection from the evil whispers of our souls and the evil consequences of actions. For a mother of love guides no one can lead astray remember love leaves astray, no one can guide
and we testify that no one is worthy of worship alone without any partners, the true supreme King, that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu oronasal synonyms indeed His Prophet, and his servant and His messenger of
love, in the manner that he deserves to not die except in a state of complete surrender to a love a state of Islam.
They both Larry from debated no fail or no luck. He says I meant one of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was name was alphanumeric.
And nomadic said to me
he said to me, the province of a law party was in the skies when they said this is an agent will have lifted knowledge remove knowledge from the earth.
So a man from
the residence of Medina the original residents of Medina said, you have a suit of law? Are you found a rating with
this man whose name was yet
he's almost in Java, how could knowledge be removed? Absolute has already come down and the hearts have contained? How could knowledge be removed while we are still presently teaching our children and our wives?
So the prophets of Allah
are here in Medina.
VAD Nikita Bella,
he said to me, I thought you were of the wisest of the people of Medina. Meaning I didn't think you would make a mistake like that meaning how could you not understand what I'm trying to say?
And then he went on to explain some a lot more than he will send them by mentioning the misguidance of the Jews and the Christians, despite them, having possessed the book of Allah between their hands,
to bear it in the face
the prophets of the body and send them over the skies and knowledge will be lifted. And he gave an example about the Jews and the Christians. Their knowledge was lifted, even though the book was still there. debase. So I took that Heidi, and I met another companion that knows who they were.
And I told him that
I said to him, and he told me this he said that
our spoken the truth is true. The messenger Allah didn't say this is true. This is the reality we learned from the Prophet, that knowledge will be uplifted.
And then she said, shall I not inform you of the very first knowledge to be lifted? In other words you want me to add to you in the Bronx on seven told us about knowledge being removed.
So Jabez said yes, of course telling you. Harlem for sure, had a letter care to Toronto.
He told us.
The very first knowledge the very first science, to be uplifted from this earth is crucial that all of our love and recognition of Allah that focus on love and fear of Allah, that adoration of Allah,
which is the subject of today's foosball. But first notice as it has elbows we have mobile said that our person must understand
That there are two types of knowledge. There is the knowledge that's on your tongue. The Jews and Christians had a book, they repeated
that it has said, this is the evidence of a law against the human being. You said it yourself, your tongue spoken, and he still didn't act on it. So the knowledge that is just data and information being relayed back and forth, this is not necessarily something that will save you something that will ensure your guidance, because he mentioned them as guidance of the Jews and the Christians despite having among them the books of Allah BMG and the other books.
This is the first thing it happens. So there's two types of knowledge one on the tongue, and that's the evidence of a login to the person. And then there is the knowledge
that is in the heart. He says, that calories, and that is the beneficial knowledge. How do you know if the knowledge is beneficial, if it benefits you, it gets to your heart, and then it sprouts it causes things to happen in your life. Like, what that's what cedella was explaining why I'm going to tell you the first knowledge I'll be removed, even though the facts are still there, even though the plan is still be there. Even though the ideas are still there. Just like the Jews and the Christians. You want me to tell you what science will be removed, that are not having the virtue
anymore. This Hadith teaches us among other things, that of what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught
of the religion is he taught this crucial or it's part of the prophetic legacy that he left behind some of our lingo synonyms, which means what which means the deen is part of the dean and the dean has been promised, preservation is going to be preserved. That means you can have for sure, even if no one else around you can be noticed to have one of the signs of the hour, you will hardly find anyone with who sure
but still will be available for those that want it because that's part of the dean and the dean will be preserved. It being preserved doesn't mean it's going to be readily available, it could be hidden, but still there for those that want. And if you want it bad enough, you will get tickets for our love knows from the hearts of those that are sincere and he guides them because of what he notices in their hearts.
And this for sure is not just a science that is available if you look for it, but if you miss out on it, it's no big deal. No, your entire success in this world and Linux is dependent on a muscle panel what Allah says are the
the believers have already done a deal. They have already reached success. These believers who have this issue are in their prayers.
So how do we get to this level of push you're on so much is dependent on this world and the next, our success here our success as human beings as six or seven successful personalities us have been successful in our visions of being successful in our Deen, how do we get there?
How do we get to be sure
the very first thing will be first of all to remember that it's a science, a science that can be learned and you have to pinpoint what it even means to have a shorter first. So you have to put a target in yourself what am I trying to get to?
The word fascia in the Arabic language for sure comes from it literally means to freeze. It means to become perfectly still. It means to stop moving almost be hypnotizing if you will to be frozen
because Allah subhanho wa Taala said for example, sort of Baba
Yama in the urine and dairy and Larry which Allah on that day they will all come out of their graves responding to the caller will hush it out to them right Manny Fernandez smell Isla Hamza, and we are swell the sounds of humanity the billions that will be there on the day of judgment will undergo for sure meaning on their voices will become perfectly still everyone will be dead silence. Little Man for the Most Merciful because our right man has arrived. Because Allah has arrived. So their hearts be trembled and their tongues became perfectly silent. Allah says what
is the point and their voices underwent for sure I mean, their voices froze. You could hear a penny dropped, although the billions upon billions will be there.
So this is the media for sure.
means to freeze, freeze. How freeze out of recognition of a loss of time
is for the heart to become fixed
in its observance of love.
But why does the heart freeze on?
Why does it become perfectly still there?
Either number one, because it's in love with a love.
And that's why the prophets of Allah said this is the sweetness of a man, you're, you're entranced by it. He says, that apartment he man.
He has to tasted the sweetness of a man, the one that is pleased city stuck because he's not looking for anything else. He has no reason to leave. He's adoring of love. He has tasted the sweetness of the one that is pleased with the laws his Lord. He's not going anywhere else is not looking for anything anymore.
Or at some times we call it the station of finding inner peace, right? I'm at peace. Why would I go elsewhere? I'm happy here as allies.
Indeed, with the remembrance of Allah, Allah we have to choose Sure. We remembering a lot. That is where the hearts find the rest. So I'm not traveling anymore. I'm not in pursuit of happiness anymore. I'm happy. I'm loving. I'm adoring My Lords kind of what's odd.
And that's even true in the Hadith that was narrated by the
one Lisa with jewelry that quote unquote, ya need to solid it was made beloved to me from this look world of yours. And please, these beautiful sense and a nice, meaning his wife. So above it, you know, set numbers and the camera to it. The comfort of my eye was made to be in solid,
the comfort of my eye, it means
can perfectly still, and it means to freeze because you're pleased. And you're in love and your charity and your adoring of mud. The word burrata in the comfort of my eye actually comes from the word caught on pinata means something that's stable that says stuck. So why is it Why is your eyes stuck? When you're pleased with something and I'm looking for anything else. That's where the out of
the comfort of my I mean, with my heart is stuck on I My eyes are stuck on meaning it comforts me to look at it. So I keep looking at it.
And in reality, this
is when a person once again, he recognizes that all the love is the ultimate truth. That there's nothing else really to recognize after you've recognized
everything that exists was only put in existence by him that there was a moment The truth is that none of this really matters because it all can be erased. Because there was a moment when there was nothing there but a month, right? There was a time where you weren't there, and your parents were there. And the universe wasn't there and rewind some more the throne itself wasn't there. And the only one that was there the ultimate reality and truth of these names that have the truth is a law surgeon. So when a person recognizes that that's the state of who sure he's trying to get that we tried to arrive that
that's what was reported. He mentioned that one of the early Muslims, as they were traveling him and a group of people they stopped. And they heard some funders
heard some funders roaring
in the night and they stopped terrorists. They were kept out for the night in Neverland to continue in the morning. Turns out it wasn't that cloud far away, there was actually a lion nearing. So everyone, of course, Blitz for safety. Everyone climbed the tree to get to a high place because the lions don't climb trees. But the one man had already started praying.
And he didn't move. And the lion came and walked around a little bit that kept it moving, no details of storage. That's simple. But the point is when the lion was gonna get up, are you crazy? Are you out of your mind?
Weren't you scared? There's a lion. Of course, initially, I'm scared he was but I was embarrassed that I'm standing in front of the Creator of the heavens in the earth, and I'm gonna be afraid of a lion. He's gonna see me walk away from him because of a lion and what's the lion? This is the concept I felt shy in front of a mountain.
How do we get ourselves to that level?
First and foremost, I'll try to give you five steps quickly in the multiples of that perhaps we can try to deliver ourselves
Everything is dependent on it. Think about how many is it different than your life? How many footballs you've attended, get your slides up like that?
Why? Step one,
you're not going to have
that experience you freezing and saw that nothing else. Right? You will not have that insider until first you have outside of solemn
as one of our shields would say, it's not a light switch. People always ask how do I get for sure. And it's not like you're you live however you want to live in the same model. And everything changes, it doesn't work that way. The one that has recognition of our love outside of solar will have recognition of our money inside this wallet.
You can't have two kinds of hearts, this one for my life and this one for solar.
level, you know, God forbid, if you joven I was never created a man in two different parts inside of it. This one's driving Oh, this one's driving.
And I love filled this universe with the ability for you to recognize him day in and day out 24 seven
His Signs of the university can reflect on His Signs meetings I add that you could read you can reflect on but when you're not reflecting on them enough to recognize he made it easy for the one that just wants to put the effort forward. Because once you reflect that's when you become certain that's what you have been. And just how I explained to you for sure used to freeze and it needs to freeze and poorer it needs to become stable. The word European itself certainty is all part of that story. You know, the Arabs even say yuppie never met the water one through yaquina you're feeling certainty. They say the water underwent the epi, meaning it stopped moving, meaning it settled in
the bottom of the well. So you have the means that's when your search settles, that's when you become positive, that's when you're not researching anymore. So a person when they reflect enough on the size of the universe and the size of the book is written versus he gets to that level of speed. And that is when you have an issue
with somebody or solid
in learning, theory and Latina
and seek strength through patience and the solid. And the solid is a burden, it's very difficult to truly uphold it to do it right, except for the people that have for sure. And that also
means enjoyment doesn't just mean the fear of Allah.
It's a mix of all of it. But part of it is that the Salah is not difficult, it's easy for those that have for sure the next ad and explains who they are as a Latina, noon are those that are searching
for meaning and they will meet their loads and they will go back to them. So the first step is to develop that their pain inside the outside of solid to recognize on one how you deal with people to recognize and recognize our love between the prayers, that we will be able to recognize it even more and even better. Once you get inside that break. This is the first step. You cannot have these two, this split personality, maybe on a worldly level fine on a spiritual level, indeed, you'll not be able to happen, doesn't work.
The second step to attaining for sure, is for you to understand the words that you're saying?
Can they ever be equally, they can never be the same, the one that knows the one that doesn't know.
So to exert an effort, first of all, to understand what you're saying.
Because if you understand what you're saying, then there's hope for you that you will reflect on those meanings. Somebody can understand it still not reflected. It won't help you wouldn't bring it to that level up and he spoke about. But if he doesn't understand and there's no chance at all that he'll reflect what's he going to reflect on.
For example, I'll give you three quick examples. The statement Allahu Akbar, the one that knows that it means Allah is greater, and realizes that when he says it's, and he understands that this in reality is the summary of the solid, solid and he established the solid for my remembrance. So remember that I am grateful. I am greater than your problems I am greater than your aspirations. I am grateful that all you can imagine I am greater than this world at all provides. I agree to anything you feel. I'm greater than everything, anything you can possibly open, when that's the summary of your
Life. And then when you say the love is greater than there's a hope that you can see my life when I say that it's a lot of really great my life, or do I many times give priority to other things overall? Only when you know the meaning can you possibly pursue they should do right can you possibly get to reflecting on the meanings? Look, for example, you say a man or need to know the difference between a man and Rahim does an amazing thing to your heart. What do you think about
a man or a man two names of Allah. You notice, they both come from the word Rama, mercy.
The difference is our right man is talking his name that is describing who he is, and our writing name that describes what he does. So a man is who he is. He is the Most Merciful. No one is more merciful than Allah, His mercy is beyond being imagined, that we say is who he is, he can't be imagined. So He is the Most Merciful, that means His mercy cannot be imagined. That's the meaning of man.
The most we can imagine, is the mercy of our mother. And that's why he told us know that I was more merciful to slaves than a mother is with her child. His mercy is unimaginable. That's the meaning of a rock man.
Or he means the one who extends that mercy who applies that mercy who gives that mercy to whoever he wants. And there's a difference between the two. What is his essence what is his actions,
because a person a human being not Allah subhana wa tada speaking about you now, you could have mercy for somebody, but you can't extend that mercy. They're getting beat up and you can't help them. They're starving, and I don't have the means to get the money to them.
And a person could have the ability to give mercy but he's not merciful, right, like a king who could spare this soul but he doesn't want to be the person who doesn't find it in his heart to have mercy. Allah tells you to repeat that he is the right man, to aim for you to understand He is the Most Merciful. And when he wants to have mercy on someone, he has mercy on the person who would have the most dismal life on the face of the earth. And if our loved ones he can play some mercy in his heart and make him the happiest person on the face of the earth. Man after he leveled in nursing,
when are you sick?
Whatever gate of mercy. Allah opens for the people, nobody can withhold it.
First up on the persecution, everyone's trying to make his life miserable, but they can't withhold the mercy of Allah. He has something inside of you that keeps him smiling and smiling from within.
What do you
mean by that he is the one that when you withhold something, nobody can send this right man I'm writing.
When you sit there and select for example, if you know the meaning of it yet,
you know, to hear the means yet or for a moment, what you see, at the end of day two here is a greeting. Okay, or a salutation to give to someone or notable or a king or something.
greeting the word, Daddy, it really comes from the word hyak life because when you salute somebody, you say what, God bless you, when you have a long life long live the king. That's the best thing you can say that somebody right when you continue in your life, in your reign, whatever it is. So when you are so you're saying, Oh Allah,
all these greetings we give to everybody, they really belong to you, right? They don't really apply to anybody with you, or love, you are the living, you're the first it doesn't have a beginning. And the last doesn't have an end. Oh, well, you're the one that when we say this, it's not flat series, but empty words, you are the living that never dies. And you know, when you say that sitting down on the ground, the grounding came from the ground, you're going to return to once you know the meaning of it, if you would just remember to have a profound effect on your heart. So step two is to understand the meanings of what you've said.
Step three is for you to appreciate the mechanism that the province of the body uses
to appreciate the sooner because the sooner
and i mean by that the external parts of the brain the details of the prayer that was taught that guidance so that you can get that to assure inside. If you don't follow His guidance on the external factors, you will not reap the fruits on the internal
for example, he's a llama la de la silla tacos and you have to come to a full stop. You have to freeze in every posture of the braid.
If you don't do that, your heart will never have. Right? Aside from your prayer being invalid to begin with. But unless you slow down, your heart will not slow down. And speaking of slowing down, part of the sooner is for you to pray before the prayer between every other day, all of a sudden, there's the recommended prayers, you can see them almost as if they are warm, right? So that you can be ready, you can slow that heart down from everything you're thinking about in your day. It was one of our shields would say, he says, you know, when you turn a fan off,
it doesn't just stop, you turn it off the winds down and takes an edge and finally stops, you want to stop what for sure you want to freeze your focus on a month, you have to come there early, right and then make your will do and get you ready, realize what you're about to do. And then you make the suit and a prayer that you make. So that all gets you ready for the reward. Because all these things on the outside, they're like a container. As we've said before, if you prepare that container, right, it won't bleed, you'll be able to take your presenting it to Allah to show him, Oh Allah, I really want you to put inside here, that happiness and enjoyment and that certainty all of it, for
sure. So number three is to appreciate the mechanism, because that shows a level so that you respect him. And so he'll give it to you.
You can't just act however you want in front of a police officer, or in front of a judge in court because you know what they could do to you. Likewise, when you're studying, how am I supposed to pray? How exactly do you want me to do this oma, this shows that you respect to them, you don't just operate or afraid I learned how to pray for my parents or other ones. That's the third to appreciate the mechanism he taught for that saw that someone love to appreciate the
number four and we have to be replicable. You have to understand that it's not the light switch once again. It's not gonna happen overnight.
And if you find whispers in your prayer, distractions shaking you up from that, for sure, from that stillness, you have to fight to get them out of them. And you have to fight to figure out why why am I like that? Why can't I do this. And I'll give you one glad tidings at least one good news that if you find whispers in your soul, this means there is some substance in your solemn shavon is worried that you're going to get out of that. So that that station of who you are and everything that comes with it. You know, you there may be people that all they do is pray.
But they are criminals in every regard. No respect for the rules of Allah, sinful in more ways than you can count. They will. They may pray and they will not have any whispers in their prayer. meaning they're able to focus they're not gonna forget, for sure, but they know exactly what they're doing. And they're not distracted. Because getting it done right, the task and they go away. Why is that? Because shaytan knows there's no words in the soul out of his, his soul that is not impactful on anyone's life, on the rest of his life. So he will leave him by going through the Jewish man had heard him say, you talk about West Western, you talk to the Muslims, you give them lectures about
the whispers of the devil, we don't get any of this. In
the moment if
you want to say talk to the ruined house, run down. There's no point that you're on autopilot, you're on cruise control, right. So to put up that find, know that it's going to take a while and if there's whispers that means you're already halfway there. And it will not remain like that, you will get to a point where Allah Subhana Allah will recognize and appreciate and reward you and make sure you aren't afraid of you and you stop receiving those whispers.
So we said number one
and number two, you must learn the meanings of the things that you say in the meanings of the words you're saying. And number three, who said that it's important for every single one of us to appreciate the mechanism of the sooner right in that solid. And number four, you need to work on it consciously actively and take a deep breath and need it for the long haul to allow permits for you to deserve that actually, number five, and finally, you need to appeal to the owner of your heart. Time and time again, as a law surgeon told us that when he said I would say don't be Chinese when people saw that. Oh
Make me have those that established I can't do
a loving marriage
or enable me Help me I'm begging you're on my heart I don't want my heart Oh I love it help me support me
to remember you and to thank you and to worship you problem with those things
and we will be able
to fulfill that obligation of ours have that for sure and reap the harvest all of its roots in this world and the next
thing in front of us
finally made the last version after you saw that you want to stop now for a few minutes early. You see it come to everybody's bundle level that and tight and the winter comes you know when it's full force the next three four months domestic is what you need everybody to collaborate in the law so just to cover the elevated heating bill so inshallah I want to let some funds together encourage one another just to get this bill behind this meeting. And that's kind of gonna keep this mystery comfortable for those to come and enhance their issue. I've learned how to recognize a lot learn from his deep faith and also generate a lot of
level of funnel upon the level of lenana. The demo
will be hidden until
after ones are appreciated for the
character of magic.
He has the
love the majority, this is
a love majority.
one I've seen the desktop with your eyes.
