Halima all praise and glory belongs to Allah. We thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure, this forgiveness, and we seek protection interferes with our love from the evil whispers of our souls, and the evil consequences of our actions, for remember of law guides known to the history and whenever Allah chooses to leave a string, no one can guide and we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and devotion and absolute obedience and complete love but Allah, the glorified and majestic without any partners, that the prophet will come into law, it was indeed His Prophet and his service and His Messenger and the truth, the words in the words of Allah in the
midst of guidance as soon as the example of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the most dangerous of matters, the newly added matters into this religion. For everything you add to this perfect and complete way of life leading the street, it only leads to the fire alarm calls out from above seven skies and he says, oh, people have email believers have a lot of fear of luck, be dutiful to Allah, in the manner that he deserves for this is his to write and do not die except except in a state of complete submission and surrender to Allah asila genitive olika what's on
their mind you this afternoon Bismillah is with regards to a phenomenal advice that our Prophet Mohammed Salah Lovell gave us through which the personality of the believer is refined and polished, to be an upright clear thinking productive human being.
It was narrated in Bukhari and Muslim and elsewhere. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us is a haiku
fell young man who is well I mean, who, when one of you looks at those that have been preferred over him in worldly matters,
then lets him quickly look at those that are below him. Meaning to balance the equation, when a person finds himself falling into admiring someone wishing they had what someone else has of worldly matters. That means the opposite one in religious matters, you should look to those above you, but then the worldly matters, we quickly look at those below us whenever we find ourselves looking to those above us. Why what's so brilliant about this? The first most obvious benefit in this practice this antidote to the problem we have right to this medication is prescription from the profits of a lot more
is there it helps us not take the blessings that we have for granted. It teaches us to count our blessings and to weigh them correctly, in this same generation of erasure adds a new edge
of love because when you do this, after you look at those above those look to those below you this is because this makes it more likely that you will not be little.
Think insignificant about the favor of Allah over you. Many times when we fall into looking at those that have been given what we don't have, we forget what we have. And if you think deeply enough, you will realize that what you have outweighs whatever you're wishing for.
And you have to push yourself to do this. You have to refine your personality and fight with it till it gets to the state because it's human nature for us to forget what we have and to be little at times and deny the great gifts, the treasures that we have and we don't recognize them. This is human nature. Even
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they
created Adam, he showed him all these children. And he saw one that was very bright among them. They said, he said, Who is this oma, he says, this is one of your sons, and one of the children of Adam, that will come at the end of time. His name is that we've set up at the end of time, considering where are we now?
He said, Oh, Allah,
take from my life 40 years and give it to him, extend his life by 40 years.
And so when the Angel of Death later had come to Adam,
and the prophets are known each other I mentioned the prophets are the only ones the Angel of Death takes permission from no one else. And he told him, it is time to go. May I take your soul? This is your time, this is your appointment. He said, I still have 40 years left.
And he forgot the province also is a fantasy, Adam, fantasy. And Adam forgot. So his children tend to forget what you had the Adam.
And Adam denied. No, no, no, I didn't do that. I have more. I have four years left, and Adam denied and thus you find his offspring denying so it's human nature. From the very first human being we are like this, we forget the treasures that we have, that outweigh the things that we admire and wish we had.
The manager the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
morass and fever Daddy, and
whomever Have you finds himself waking up in the morning, secure in his residence secure
part in his body, meaning for many aliens, he's able to get up, get out of the bed and turn the doorknob, that's a blessing get out. He's not trapped by an illness or by an oppressor. And he has to these new Didn't he says it's as if this entire world from as far as this corners has been gathered for him.
What is the point of having treasures? If you are not secure? Look at the people that I know don't have security. They don't know if they will live till nightfall or if their parents will live their life for what is wealth at that point. We don't value security. And we wish we had something else. Pardon in his body? What would you do to get out of bed? If you couldn't? What would you do to release your urine if it was trapped with some stones in the bladder? Right? What would you do for your thumb? If it was gone?
He STDs me meal? What is it like to not have today's meal?
And what do you have to worry about Tomorrow's Meal for you may not even be around for tomorrow. So if you have today's meal, and that's it, you have the whole dunion, what else are you going to be using anyway.
So we don't look at it this way, as the art of these diseases that helped, for example, is a teacher and it's a crown, that the healthy wear that can only be noticed by the sick, you're a king, you have a treasure, but you don't realize it. If you walk through the corridors of the hospital, you will realize it and before you do those individuals realize this.
So when a person does not look at those below him, those that are less
well off than him in worldly matters, he tends to forget a lot of articles upon him.
So you have to think of this. At times, many of us will not admit this.
But we hate our lives.
You always wish that it was different than the way it is what you need to know that there are people right now that wish they had your lives. And you need to come to terms with that and programming yourself to do so every time you look above you quickly look the lowest.
Also because when you keep looking above that the worldly matters. You get programmed to understanding that this is value and you forget the value of the religious mentors. They can't both exist in that when that takes the highest nation in your heart. You begin to think of yourself as inferior and forget the value of email, as a lot of our co founders want me
to move me right. Don't grieve, don't be sad. You are the most superior if you're unbelievers, meaning just by virtue of your Eman, you're automatically superior. You don't realize that anymore. You don't feel that anymore and we
I mentioned the previous photo many times that any lesson you may have, even if you attain what goes above your head and go up and you accomplish, every single one of those blessings, could hurt could harm you. There is no such thing as pure good in anything of the Union, it could be for you or against you, the world could destroy you, the children could destroy you, their reputation could destroy you, his beautiful wife could destroy you all of it can. And that's why it's out of the blessings of unlimited reality that he didn't give you.
That he didn't give you. That's a blessing as well. You see a lot of failures over us, we don't remember that many of them are forgotten, we just discussed it's human nature, and many of them are hidden, as well as
him depriving us is in reality many times even giving us
you know, medical video,
he used to sit in an era with a
female zela anemia, Junior
He says, indeed, our laws favor over me in the things he kept away from me of the worldly matters is actually greater than his blessings in the things he gave me of this dunya. He says, because he has given dunya to others. And as a result, they were destroyed. Those in the ifsa window bustled
opened the gates of provision of risk for the people, they would have transgressed in the earth. Why? Because the test of being grateful is so much harder than the chest test the being patient. And if you understand that concept, you will understand much of why it is from Allah blessing over the owner throughout the history of this woman has gone through so many difficulties, can bear in mind in said,
No, rather than human beings constantly crossing this limits, whenever he gets to that point that he feels like, he's self sufficient, things are in control.
That's why I'm very happy.
He said these words
mean the words the words, but there's no way he could have known this for himself. So this is in reality, something he learned from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that is his word, it takes a long time
and then sometimes he makes a decision to get into a certain business investment or otherwise, for
So a lot tells the angels close the door between this and my sleep, wants to get married, wants to some business, whatever, some sort of enterprise, right? Some sort of engagement is about to get engaged in a walk quickly, because the angels Don't let it get in the way. Because if I give this to him, I'm gonna admit to him into the fire.
And then the person who gets up in the morning, he misses the opportunity. He's saying, oh, man, bad fortune, someone who would be evil like somebody. somebody knows jealous of me, someone is envious of me. He said, women who are in love.
But this is nothing in reality, but Allah's gift to him.
That's when a person sees people preferred over him said hungry.
Perhaps this one blindly, perhaps this would be a good return to the fire. The majority of humanity is like this, the majority of the rich are corrupt.
So he gets that clarity.
And from that clarity comes to him, as you mentioned a moment ago just to review it perhaps that a lot loves him. He sees things clearly. And there's a connection between our love of loving you and you letting go meaning this being disconnected here at art from the doing not admire it so much. Not thinking in valuing that it's my success. Maybe it's my destruction.
As I love the Lord Gautama said to this prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, find out to the Jews.
In them a little model we have been hired to do here. Why
don't you dare
admire their wealth and their children. Meaning in and of themselves if you want well provided That's right. If you want children for a lot, that's awesome.
And that's not good enough that extensive that you're after, but in and of itself, don't admire their wealth and their children rather a love only wishes meaning through giving them wealth and children
to punish them using it using the wealth of the children. In this world, they live a life of agony, life of anxiety, of stress, more money, more problems. And so they read their last Alesis while they're disbelievers, and look, those that are looking to those above them and trying to find this mountain every time they made an accomplishment, they were disappointed. And so they kept climbing further. So a lot relieves you from that and tells you don't look at those of you in good answers. Because you could spend your last on this wild goose chase, it'll never end. And that's why the celebrities and entertainers and musicians, they they're the ones on antidepressants, they are the
ones with the suicide rates. Switzerland is the highest per person income on average in the world for its citizens. It has the highest suicide rates in the world as well. It's a wild goose chase, but zoo.
Zoo this week, this is interesting, doesn't need to throw your money in the garbage. It means to be disinterested, not contingent upon your happiness, your happiness isn't waiting for money or children or anything from this world. That is what I love loves you. And that is when you get the clarity. They come hand in hand, Heidi narrative
says that a man came to the province
Tell me about an action that if I do it, I love love me, and the people will love me. So he said some of
his head dunia you have
this interest yourself in this world of love and love, you will be marrying the nurse, a female nurse, you hit booking nurse, and this interest yourself in what's in the people's hands. The people will love you because they love you. So if you want what they have, they'll hate you.
If they see you envious and seeking and pursuing and wishing to effort, they have to become their enemy automatically. And likewise, when you lose interest yourself in this world, you get cut off from being loved by all the love and the clarity that comes with being loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But once again, don't you think just to balance the equation, don't you think that means that a person sits in his home and doesn't get a job. Being disinterested in this role doesn't mean you don't aspire for the greater good, even if you're going to use it as a vehicle. Definitely not. He said he was in a mirror metal slide deck.
Just so we can balance the image here in the book, how excellent is good? Well, in the hands of a good man. Good wealth really comes from in the hands of a good man who's going to be used on the header or even the mandatory at times he said something.
it's enough for me to destroy you, for you to ruin those that are dependent on you and your wife and your children and the lights. So you need it as a vehicle so they won't be destroyed as a vehicle for your true happiness and your salvation unit.
He gives a beautiful example of what it really means to be disconnected from the dunya. He says les says his
being a person of someone that has disconnected renounce the dunya is not by considering how long right unlawful with a woman right, nor Why waste the money wasting money is haram. In and of itself. People die for a loaf of bread that comes by way of money, no wasted money is not allowed either. He said in
having true Zoo disconnect with regards to this world.
He says as a cooler Viva
to be more confident in what is in the hands of Allah right the hereafter. Right?
Even in this dunya to be more confident than what Allah has than what you have.
You're not confident in this money. You're not confident in these children rather than my confidence with Allah. He can bring the fate out of it and he can give it and replaces.
He says one
way to solve
and for you to be in a catastrophe. And if you weren't going through the catastrophe, the same understood, meaning your life doesn't fall apart when a disaster happens or you can shed some tears. It's normal, that's human that's expected of me to be merciful, but you're not so connected, that you fall off once you get a little bit of
disappointment. He says weighing in corner, man
will help to sell and for you to be the type of person that when somebody praises you, he compliments you. And somebody criticizes you rightfully, you feel the same way. Why? Because you're not connected. Nobody a little person tells me I made a mistake. I'm not here anyway, I'm disconnected.
No big deal. If someone prays to me, it doesn't really matter. He
thinks that I'm except for him. I'm acceptable. So in good times, and in bad, my heart revolves around the love. My body is here. And my heart is with the creators of Hannibal, dada, this is the reality of Zoo being disconnected from this world as a matter of heart in reality,
and look at the beautiful devoted slaves of our profits. A loss of justice, what will happen?
Next lab in a world
and remember how we gave to our Prophet Sulayman. Son, how excellent a doctor someone was attached a slave that's asleep, someone who's devoted in a word. He is someone that is constantly coming back to us. A web means over and over again he returns
and then he explains how some kind of without a look at this lifestyle. Look how comforting it is. Look how beautiful it is. This is the paradise of this world. He says Savannah was in the army because he saw financial ga when he was presented in the late afternoon. With a soft united ga the most beautiful, most powerful, most impressive impressive warhorses
for color in the
came to him at the late afternoon, he said, I was preoccupied. I fell in love
with this claim, this goodness, the property this horses that were presented to me, it distracted me. This is the point prioritisation it distracted me from remembering my Lord. until it was veiled, meaning the sun was veiled. In other words, he missed thoughtless late afternoon horses are presented to him, he's Oh Allah, I was distracted by this remembering my lord until the sun went away.
for coffee, farmers can be sued, they will bring them back to bring the horses back. And he swiped his hand when he slugged them at that at the next thing, like the ability to disconnect with something coming to you and
perhaps to give them a charity fit the poor with them is the worst. By the way. The point being that if it's going to come between me and Allah, I'm able to disconnect he came back to a lot immediately even during the good times.
As the province of
Aloma er over the weekend in July and aromatic Allah, I seek protection in you from your blessing.
Going away, meaning he's remembering, even on the blessing is there. Likewise, when those horses were there before he disconnected and he was hostile because of it. And then the iron comes and says what the is continuing
to monitor. And then we tested slaver, and cast upon seat or his throne or his chair, a body. The scholars mentioned that he had one child at that time that was deformed, it didn't survive a dead body. It was born dead.
And then he came back to us
will happily will can live.
He said Oh ALLAH forgive me. So when the Buddha was there, he disconnected from it unless it because it was a law and then a difficulty.
attached to it, he has his own love. Forgive me, the bad happened. Why? Because of me, for his wife to revolve around love that is the key to enjoying your life and getting through.
Once again, the profits of the love are similar find our character by saying when you look at those above you and
those below you to balance the equation if you will, and not take for granted the blessings of Allah over you and to have your life revolve around him.
hamdulillah salat wa salam, O Allah. Allah Allah. He
Are some of the ways that can help us disconnect
and realize the reality of this world and be able to see through it with clarity.
The key is in reflecting, not necessarily a knowledge of
what's right and recite to them.
The story of the one who we gave our
friend Salah, I mean, we gave him our science he had the book, by the way that applies to us now. We have the book, we have knowledge, we have the Scripture is preserved, and peel himself away from it. Fed's balance sheet on and as a result, shavon jumped on him, followed him, and he became of the deviant despite his knowledge, despite his knowledge, Alonzo does his widow, she cannot find out we'll be here. If we wanted, we would have raised him with this knowledge. I mean, there are no it's not always easy.
But the problem is that he chose to remain attached to the earth.
And he followed his desires. So he's examples like the example of a goat, whether he pursues or he doesn't, is panting, I'm paraphrasing the is for the time, meaning he's in a world when he doesn't stop, he's never rested, is never satisfied. He's never contented. He's never taught, he's never relaxed. He's in the spin even though he has the knowledge because he became attached to this earth, the knowledge didn't help. So to reflect on your knowledge, this is the key to attaining your peace, having certainty clarity to see with your art clearer than you see with your eyes. What is the proof of that, that only knowledge plus reflection equals
a lot of amika with dialysis and have
Candida talamona in many of you are distracted, so you're not reflected by the competition, meaning a union until he visited agree it's only time you're gonna wake up. But we need to wake up before that a larger thing you're going to find out, you're going to know Surely you're going to know what I do know, I have knowledge now.
If you only had certain knowledge, so knowledge, when you're not distracted, the first area when you're reflecting on your knowledge, only then will you have your pain or do you have certainty. Otherwise, if you're distracted, the knowledge you have is not real knowledge is not beneficial. Look at us now perfect opportunity, as in springtime, is about is about to peek out at us. Look at how long this winter was. This winter is not gonna end this winter is not gonna end every time you get another batch of snow. And now that the winter is over, it was like a dream.
Likewise is the spring.
The spring is beautiful and immediately was like a dream. We're back to winter. As soon as you're in a moment, the only before that if it never happened to reflect like that.
Then he says the life of this world
is just play and amusement and decorations and us bragging to one another.
And it's a careful,
right and competing against one another being distracted by it together as to go back and forth. See who has more.
He says this is all like what come up in Agile.
Just like some rain that comes with the spring green that comes and causes the farmers to be impressed to the spring with the sprouts through my week.
And then it becomes bright yellow and it falls apart. That becomes rubble. That's you, along with that universe together like this for you. Because that's you, you get real bright and strong and then the moment you hit your top you start going on your way down, you're drying up like the leaf by the minute. Literally scientifically, you have less and less water in your cells every year in your life. You're drying up. I was on just this one, Tessa
I swear by the moon. As it gets bigger and bigger and bigger. You too are going through stages you know when the moon gets a little bigger. Soon as it gets full it starts falling apart again. So I swear by the moons and inches together to completeness you to go through phases to see that in your life is so beneficial to reflect on it to stop being distracted is of the greatest ways, as Sarah was more knowledgeable than you must have taught him to teach the angels because of his knowledge. Fantasyland image that wasn't about that moment and he forgot. forgetfulness when you don't think anymore is
what about us when we don't think at all. We are
To sleep. So you have to make time for this. And I conclude with the happy hour Fernando.
As a practical method on how to get to this level, he sets a level I think he was setting up.
When he is activated,
hold your tongue just stop talking for a little bit, focus, and let your house be enough for you. You have their entire tree house, there has to be reflection time as well lock yourself off from the world a little bit in distractions and start thinking about the world that everything comes to be their treasures that happened in the leaves. I said someone sick in the hospital, he's younger than you and he died. He was healthier than you and he died. Think about it. That's a treasure for you. If you will just reflect when you're sad having to let your house be enough for you. You know, one of my family members, elderly woman, she said you know, it's Facebook did
Facebook make me feel like I'm living in a house without walls.
We make dinner the kids take a picture of dinner, the more eating thing they posted on Facebook, we go to a restaurant take a picture of what the great meal posted.
That's not Haram in and of itself. But too much of that makes you all you're thinking about is as if this food has real value, as if it's permanent as it happened. And those are termites in the heart. That if you don't reflect quickly, lock yourself away and just think for a little bit. They become snakes and they destroy your hearts. They blind do two things. You don't look at those below you any longer. When you're sad, and let your house be afraid and cry over your since there is no mercy in your heart for yourself. If you feel bad for yourself, you don't feel bad for the room. If you don't feel bad for the sins that are greater when we don't reflect brother and sisters. We don't cry, and
love crying is a disaster. not crying is a disaster. Because he promised a lot while he was setting up the fire will not touch an eye that guards in the way of Allah, meaning Jihad defending the Muslim army a scowl and an eye that cries from the fear of love. But we don't think
it'll kill anybody. I don't drink any wine.
Right? But your arrogance in your work is worse than drinking wine showing off is minor shift it's greater than drinking wine. Consider that inside. Stop being satisfied with the external things inward a little bit.
With Hold your tongue and let your house be enough for you and cry over your sins. May Allah forgive us for what he knows about us and give us the clarity to see this world as it really is. and grant us the clarity that comes with His love,
His love and the love of those that loved him and the love of every action that would bring us closer to his love. May Allah make his love dearer to us than our families and our children our wealth, and May Allah make our relationship with Him more beloved to us than cold water for a dying manifest love them. I mean, I love them. Hannah

And Tony, you have
