And Glory be to Allah, and may spiders peace and blessings be upon us messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family in his companions and all those who trade his path, meaning we asked a lot of soldier to drag us and do life upon this path. And a definite point is religion. No, no reunion around him a lot of money.
Is that lovely, and once again, for for the gracious invite, I appreciate you guys calling me in, albeit in the middle of a hurricane.
While I still haven't recovered from my flu.
So the topic that was given to me what makes a heart disease. So why is even important? Well, if you read the entire for FM cover to cover, you search through its every page, you will not find a longer, a longer oath sworn by Allah xeljanz through the heavens to you than the old about
the severity of the matter of the hearts are definitely humans that are kind of harboring this. And so the shrimps he has certainly she has certainly succeeded. He or she that purifies themselves, he or she that has been purified by a lot. There's a dual meaning there. And they have certainly failed, make no mistake about it. And then there's those that have instilled their hearts with corruption, with sickness, with disease with death at times.
That's what it all comes down to. And that's why we find the greatest of human beings those that had the sharpest perceptions, and the greatest wisdom focused on this above all else, you find someone that you brought him on, he said, I'm who I love told the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to heed his example. Take an example from him. And he said, and we find him saying in the Koran, after his whole long life of devotion while at Zinio, a bathroom, or a lot do not humiliating on the day that everyone is gathered.
Around 11 in selling the day that nothing is going to matter, no wealth, no children, no degrees, not even Islamic knowledge. By the way, nothing will matter except the person that comes to a lot with a clean sound pure healthy hearts.
And so not being concerned about this thinking it doesn't matter. That is of the things that indicates of the factors that indicate your heart is sick. And that is what can certainly increase your heart in sickness, the heedlessness about the heart itself, when you're never inspecting it when you're not making up for it all the time that's out designs that you're in that you're in danger. And that is why the preference of a lot while you're sitting there was anything but that our mother on the second level, the other one that she said to us at the most frequently made. supplication of the prophets, blah, blah, blah to sell them. ozium have only been polluted with
Viagra DNA. Oh Turner of the hearts keep my heart firm on your deed. How often do you say that? How often do you say that presence mindedly
and he was even asked why this particular drop? You say so often. And he said in a loop of no swearing.
Because the hearts are right there, all of them, between the two fingers of the Most Merciful nobodies to think about what flips the hearts as he wishes, then we have to say that this is not going to be done at all up to know the point of the question which war? That answer was the fact that he was always asking a lot appealing to a lot. And so the fact that you care enough, has an effect on how much care you will receive from a lot regarding your heart. We have to be invested in this enterprise hugely.
Otherwise, your heart can become sick. Your hearts can die without even noticing, by the way, because it's the size of a dead heart is that you don't notice just how big or how big it is.
And so what is a
diseased heart look like? Well, opposites clarify what does it look like?
What is the function of the heart because when you're healthy, that means you're fully functional, right? When you're sick, you're dealing with the body. So what is the function of the heart?
Who has the answer?
The function of the hardest word to recognize how
to love him that is the meaning of
That is the meaning of
the history of worship is love admiration. So for you to recognize a lot as a result of that. And as a result of that, it translates into actions meaning what you prefer him, you prefer what he prefers over anything else you prefer. That's what a healthy heart looks like. And so a disease part is the very opposite of that you reverse
the disease heart is going to be
a heart that struggle is that recognizing a lot of struggles at loving him, struggles with loving him, and struggles to give preference precedence to him, what he wants over you and what you want.
of the things I love, he also has a nice classification that I've tried to simplify here today, even though that your assignments going to be challenging. He said, If you read through a lot, so again, over and over again, highlights the fact that a healthy artists have qualities. What are those two qualities, he says, the quality of life
and the quality of life, life meaning activity, energy strength.
So light, meaning a healthy heart is filled with light, the light is within it really needs. The lighter. The lighter guidance is in that
you see things clearly as they are the light of faith. I believe that I have faith in God's existence. No, no, no. You believe that God is great in recognizing was perfection.
And then as a result, you worship Him as Bill you see him as Bill you see him? How would your heart the lights get turned on your heart? You are observing okay? Does that make sense guys? First of all, a heart that is filled with light illuminated,
has good reception, clarity, communication, between
the second quality of life and life. It is driven is passionate about doing good, seeking out good, a lot the ultimate good with all the other forms of good that are left filled out for us the thing that he told us are pure are good and are in our own best interests. That is the healthy heart illuminated filled with light and filled with life spiritual energy, passionate about the right things. So now regressives we get to our topic, what does a diseased heart look like? The opposite of life is on
darkness and the opposite of of strength is one
weakness. So a diseased heart has these two qualities. Number one is a dark heart is dark. And that is why it is always suffering from suffering from confusion, suffering from so many different things.
So for example, a diseased heart is one that is
blurry vision, doubtful confused about the realities of fake confused about belief in our lives. Lj confusing his belief about the angels confused into belief about
the realities of our greater realities than the physical realities of our world. So all you can see if all you're sure about is the physical world, then you really don't see anything at all right? Because what's more reality
a lot compared to a lot You don't even exist really we're not the reality. We are contingent dependent on him. Right, we are a byproduct of the power of a law of syllogism, the commands of Allah we are temporary, all of that so he is more of reality. And if you only focus on the universal reality, that means you're blind in the truest sense of the word. And that is what the what I said,
aren't the eyes that go blind, but rather is the heart is in the chest to go blind that true blindness, the blindness of the heart to the realities of the light the realities of
and also behind court else during the dark about another reality, the reality of your own existence?
in the hereafter. The reality of the disease hard was not aware of.
Because you can believe in the hereafter systems like logic, yes, trees that in winter coming back to life a spring there for me when I die, I can come back to life the one who did this can do that on a very crude
philosophical level, pretty straightforward, there will be a direct, right. But there's a very big difference between that. And between you feeling you feeling just how close and just how permanent
you feeling tasting a loving

great speak out all the contents, which is
In seal is selected, all presented was tucked away and hidden. When the prophet SAW a lot more ideal sentences in agenda

Gen nine is closer to you than that, isn't it? There will come a moment when you put your shoes on, you put your clothes on, you're putting yourself up somewhere else watching you will be in a different world that could happen at any given moment. So feel the closeness, the reality of the director is that the signs of a healthy part and of the signs of the disease heart is darkness being in the dark about just how real just how close to your actor is,
By the way, this darkness, no one likes to be left in the dark to make
this darkness causes the human being a great deal of anxiety.
A great deal of pain.
Think of just being in the dark about the year after. Not really you're not really thinking about it much You don't
think of many of the secondary diseases are like me, when you
when you have hatred and hostility and malice in you and hard feelings and grudges and why why where's all that come from? So much of that pain comes from the fact that all you can see is this world. And this world is so limited, right? And so you want it but we can't all have it all. You want to recommend us to become upset, you become angry, you hold grudges, that's where it comes from. This causes a lot of pain.
There's hardly anything more painful for a person then.
or holding grudges.
See, I never saw an impressive more resembling of an aggressive person than the NPS. But you're the oppressor, you shouldn't be
jealous of what they have. But you are hurting more, though you're the one that is inflicting this violation on the other person.
And record is the key. This is a toxic way to live, right? It's like there's one person that's really poisoned waiting for the other person to die.
And so the pain that comes with disease, just like physical disease hurts the pain that comes with the spiritual reality. being disconnected from a loved one being disconnected from being content with him and being able to adore him by deleting misplaced love is being in the dark about Allah, just how perfect be treating worthy of my adoration, you're going to fall into being obsessed with other things that are so inferior and so disappointing. And so that's the darkness that comes with it is each part in the confusion in our pain, anguish, anxiety, all of that comes from
the second major aspect as we
classify this way of the disease part is what
we said darkness and what
weakness weakness in the face of your desire
for happiness, having weak meaning shallow desire, both of those meanings are true. And I'll give a few examples. Number one, your weakness in worship is definitely a sign
there is a morsel of flesh inside of us that the rest of the body would be good for me what the action will be good and bad the rest of the body will be back that is certainly the heart. You know interesting.
He gives an example of
the heart is the king and the limbs are the soldiers.
soldiers the limbs always obey.
Beginning. That's the way it works.
He says chickens love. But the words of the prophets of the love are even more accurate.
When he said, if the heart is healthy, the rest of the body will be healthy. He said, Because sometimes in rare instances the soldiers can rebel against the king. But that can never happen with the heart. If your heart is healthy, the body will comply, the body will comply. And so if your body is not compliant, you're too weak to perform actions that need to know the department's ability to receive
your heart is the ability to conceal and that is why you can't find the light, the energy the force to work.
The way you know you should also be examples you can use the weakness whenever you feel yourself leak in your ability to restrain yourself from committing to
make no mistake about it that is an element of the heart then
you can find the willpower to abstain to restrain yourself to determine yourself before you commit
or even to regret it enough after you've committed after you've committed the sin. That's not the size of the disease, heart weakness in your in your strength
and also being weak in
benefiting from advice to weaken your responsiveness to advice. I want to read through this passage in
Listen, we're talking about weakness in your receptiveness your form as a result of advice. When I was speaking about the disease of
various types, various levels, they are both mentioned major and minor. They're both mentioned in the beginning or referred to as a development in the beginning.
in their heart disease, increased disease. So
when we spoke about the lesser form of democracy for the person, one foot in one foot that departments feeding, but it's not totally motivated. They're there on the edge. How can you describe it?
powerful paragraph, a few I believe,

their example it is like this like this, or it is like a rainfall that comes down from the sky.
Keep in mind, rain comes down to the fight to the earth. Right. The
our rainfall that comes down from the sky, to the ruler to our
rainfall was the rain storm. It came with darkness.
Alongside the rain, it was darkness and thunder and lightning.
Why these people lose weight how they receive the container their heart that they received before hadn't been here before and through their lens, the crime mob of them a lot. Why? Because they have an inner conflict. They're not able to connect to it. And so it bothers them striking truth is glaring truth this rainbow comes down it's supposed to be fruitful. But for them they're experiencing a storm in Thunder lightning in this darkness for the month of October
the cause them to stick their
fingers in their ears.
To go through this
fear of dropping dead or lower into the cafe no one fully competent believers are left with the Academy.
The lightning strikes almost naturally their eyesight is so bright ever seen at photographs during the lightning.
In that moment, indicators just drive illuminate the entire world
of losses. The lightning strikes are so bright it all winds down. The truth is so glaring and obvious and
condemned by our law, that whole mental thing. But what is likely also letting go of a very momentary flash. He says every time it gets lit up for them. They will

soccer, soccer, soccer, whatever.
If I'm not wanted,
he would have done away with their hearing altogether, they won't hear the message anymore. And their their sights altogether, certainly allies over all things.
In other words, one of the signs of a heartbeat is rapid with the disease of hypocrisy, the disease of NEPA
is that the more lethal reminder and its effects directly loss, when you cannot retain a device.
When you stop at a rest area for your demand, whether that's the law or quote, or lecture, and the moment is over, you repress too fast at the very least,
that degree of weakness where you have no spiritual independence, right? That's a problem, a huge problem. And our losses, if you don't recoup quickly, a lot if he wishes, he could do away with their sights altogether. Meaning what they can go from weakness, which is the lesser and usually the earlier phase of disease to the one I began to darkness, which is the more fatal form of the diseases.
And so check on what you get out of your,
your spiritual rejuvenation, how often do you get it and how long does it last?
Your body says
these are very difficult words. He says, keep your heart out the diagnosis of your heart see it
an after recitation of Fortran, and when a reminder is being shared, the England digital he says if you can't find it, then that person doesn't react, then as a love to grab your heart, because your heart your heart to the disease has put you on the brink of death or has totally annihilated your heart.
That is not to make anyone hopeless if they fail this test, because a lot of dogen at the same time tells us all throughout the book that not just heal the sick, heal the disease alone gives life to the dead.
Don't we know that? Our research shows that
that's why you find for example, in Sumo and heavy
rock calm for the believers hard to know out of the remembrance of Allah and not be like the eagle before then that kept dragging up kept procrastinating until their hearts hardened. He said what in the very next area. It's not unrelated, unrelated, I love it.
To be certain that love gives life to the earth after it has died.
Don't we have made clear for you to find
only one card we have

prophet SAW a long
Remember this, he said imagine faith wears out inside of you the same way the garment wears out.
Same way this all begins to fall apart literally.
He said faith wears out inside of you the same way that a coat or garment to wear out. So as a lot constantly ask Allah to renew the faith in your heart.
renew the faith in our hearts and to continue to renew the faith in our hearts and to give life to our hearts by virtue of our faith alone.
So that's the first step by the way
to getting past the disease once
you add a model any drive that you know, by the way is just one drop from

And then the next thing we're going to do, after being diligent to constantly have
to protect our hearts, purify our sense of diseases, renew our fate, all of this, you're going to put into work in a different way as well.
This work has to, it should begin by the way, but this lecture is
beginning with you studying how your heart functions, like Allah blesses us with it being that he gives us the mechanics of our heart, you will not be able to know what
you know, the scholars when they derive
all of these, the points in the park for example, too much eating too much sleeping too much.
talking too much mixing.
Also social comparison, all these things, they destroy you. They do little by little, even though they're all in principle.
And when we talk about the different kinds of things you can
priceless treasure that we can talk about. That's a part of it. But what little I talk about the very bare minimum
number one, which is your practice and your day to day practice being a little bit more serious. You know, I'm not going to go on around.
But the issue of practice?
Do we realize in the age of the secular project, where people try to silence God out of their lives? Right, but
do we realize the concept of a non practicing wisdom is very oxymoronic? Do we realize this? Like I'm not saying if you're not practicing?
We're not that's not the issue. But
just because I don't want to think someone is being judged by me does not mean I'm not going to keep reminding my brothers and sisters from the idea of
right or wrong. You cannot be a non practicing
non practicing Muslims or non submitting submitter, right.
This is big problem with that huge problem.
By the way, exam differentiates between like this belief, we can easily we're all weak, we're all we all have our weaknesses.
But we cannot be rubbing against a larger, I'm not going to practice I don't practice. I'm not that kind of that will be testament to this belief, whether rebellion is this belief,
or this believer. And
as I say, I have committed to
check out the title. And
that is the whole difference between who is a person in principle that submits to a man who is the person that singles a lot out.
And someone sees themselves as equal footing. Chip, right? That a lot of sausage roll.
That is the the antithesis, that is the venom that will destroy your heart. That's why a lot of the
wall to the machine, those people don't love those who don't talk to purity, what is the purity of the data?
That is the basis of purifying your heart is recognizing your God, the function of the heart?
Yeah, there's a lot to be said about
is your contract with whomever appears on the contract to their portfolio department. You have to understand the fundamentals you're interested in.
Firstly, stated by email not holding a meter of land now.
It's because they broke the contract, they stepped on it, they kicked it with their foot, they will not be they will rebellious because they broke the contract. We sell them from our mercy and we mean their heart heart.
And so putting in the work, dedication, devotion in practice is a huge part of this.
In simpler terms,
it's the mathematical equation. Minimizing the things we do wrong, and maximizing the things we do right to minimize our things to maximize our good deeds is essential part of cleansing our hearts and purifying them
and you need to notice
you, when you stop performing with ease, this is far more dangerous to your heart than you performances.
shavon cares more about you not performing the duties that he cares about, you think
one of the most dangerous aspects of things is what
they make you feel worthless, right. And so you start performing the piece.
And so then you become more overwhelmed by yourself to the point that you start seeing them as a weakness becomes a doubt comes about.
And then at that point, we'll never see perform anymore.
And so, the trick here is to always separate between your good deeds and your ego. Don't say, Oh, I messed up, I went to this website, or I did that, or there's no point in praying, separate them completely got nothing to do with each other, put them on different tracks, so that they don't bleed into each other, or at least, we wanted to leave that. We'll talk about that in a second. Separate your booty, tell yourself, I'm going to perform microbeads no matter what that means I perform a lot that day.
Because the hope will be there, if you protect this,
you will start being able to get rid of that.
So they can be anonymous. He said it's a
very profound, he says there are four types of parts to this point of minimizing evil in your life. For the sake of your heart, he says there are four or five departments, there is a heart which is like a radiant plant. Remember, he says this is the heart of the believer
is and there is the heart that is completely sealed and hopeless. This is the heart of this believer, the seal on the heart of what
he says then there is a heart that is upside down to begin with. This is the art colony, the major
believer, but actually the believer. And
it is the fourth type of artist
reference, he says that there is a heart that is being supplied by two different substances.
this is probably the real so pay attention.
Part is being supplemented with a pool of water that has
two streams pumping into it. This is your
stream of faith. You're being pumped with a healthy life, life, all of that stuff. And a stream of doctors doubts and confusions that sensations and desires, right?
He says whatever.
Whichever of them becomes dominant, that's to that person.
And so what are you trying to do what I'm telling you maximize your good and minimize the evil, for evil silver into your good try to you try to tighten this valve that pumping into your heart as much as possible.
And trying to open this valve carefully as much as possible.
That is the project of rinsing with good and evil disease from the heart.
some people say like I'm starting to
still have my same weaknesses, I'm still suffering from it, you know, whatever it may be. I have Are you getting a blood transfusion without closing the moon? Sometimes we do that right? From here, and then you're hearing toxic lyrics from there, right? So like how it's supposed to work. You're pumping both the same time.
Or forgiveness is probably the most common. I've seen images, right? Like you think
you think it's harmless to use entertaining yourself with a movie online. Or sometimes we spend more time on Snapchat or Instagram and Flickr and route, every single one of those images you're not allowed to see is an arrow that stab you in the heart where you felt it or not. And then when you return from it, remove that from your mind. You'll sleep better, you'll be better off all the pains that come with the disease heart will begin to subside by the way. It's not like you went by the way. It's not like you went the next day to work or to school. It's like oh man. I know. I feel like that movie was really good last night. We never feel that way. It's patchwork, isn't it? It's so
worthless the returns on it. We know one of the quotes he says about this concept. He says no Rock paper.
Do not be confused
he says we patch up our
home to get back together. Because we feel nice for a moment we patch up our Lumia by tearing apart rd.
So neither does our Dean remain to serve us. Nor does that which we are catching up. Neither of them are good. So what's the point?
And so please be extremely careful about this, I think is fine to think this is harmless to allow these inlets of doors, pour disease into your heart. You know, I'll give you an example. That
example, we may not be able to relate as much. It's there's a little bit of a generation gap. But I'm sure you guys are intelligent enough to draw to draw parallels to your own life.
Or maybe you guys can relate. Because I don't watch movies. I get on airplanes sometimes.
And I have to see all the garbage on the street. And it's international flight. And
there's a lot of Indian movies, that is the same exact storyline every single time. Right.
But yeah, you know, the story of the loping the runaway girl. What happens to everyone watch the movie, the cognitive dissonance, right?
deliberately pick off.
The girl was with the guy that she's in love with them, like they're about to get caught in the door down and like,
breaks the door open, but the guy jumps out the window,
or on the edge of our seats, if we were on the edge of our seat, suspense filled thriller, afternoon kid gets out in the nick of time. And then everyone's watching says what?
So he was using example.
But do you realize what happened there all jokes aside, you decided to say, I didn't realize
like if that was your daughter,
or your sister, would you stay hungry rather than keep escape, you wouldn't have been hungry. That is a very dangerous point that we need to expose for ourselves that desensitization that comes with
the promise of a product or service that is as a broadcaster to was the advocacy I took
when you are pleased by your good deeds and bothered by your bed.
Then there's still belief, faith, health life right in your heart.
When you don't feel it anymore, you should have.
And so be careful of the things that comatose and disease in fact, you're marking that way.
And so be
vigilant about getting out and be very clear about whatever does happen in Polish if you polish and you perform even better deeds. And no matter how many times
you get up one time more than that I'll share with you.
First of those eight that are
similar to me. He says
that when a person visits in many areas, you know that there's a particular word in here.
The surgeon committed
a black doctors seem a bit of disease saying to their partner, that
if he pulls out, he pulls out quickly, they interrupt themselves. They don't interrupt themselves, he goes out and seeks forgiveness and reforms three different things superior, their heart is polish.
Everything is Polish means polish, I don't think the Polish is going to be doing the bottom splitting work.
He said what he
needed to do that will be done. The person continues to they never make that new turn. They continue sitting it continues throwing that stage
until it in cases there are and that is the seal that you find mentioned by Anwar in his book when he said can you ever wanna
know certainly the seal that has over their hearts that do what they used to learn
The next thing that I'm citing for hope,
because hope is that this is a lot of diligent.
Help is always retrievable, but he is on board, who's not harmed by and not
decreased in any way by correctness. And by his gracious offering
One time as the people who is aware of the
trials that will come over the people that everybody knows their hands and he heard, he says, No, you're probably talking about his family with his neighbor and like the day to day stuff.
And they said, Yes, he said, No, this will be extended for with prayer and charity and testing. This cancels that out. It's important to cancel it out.
It's so important, he says, but who heard the prophet SAW seven speak about the times
when the semi finals will come, like the waves, the waves of the ocean,
when to the ocean, things can propel them or we can build it in
such a way that I did, he said, Please tell him he said, I've heard the prophets
say trials will surround people predict will be presented to the hearts of people like the read so strong that
they're so close together, they're really trying to tightly pack. So before one hand and the other one begins directly overlapping. So before one trial is over, and
one trial is over.
The trial will present themselves to the hearts of the people leading down to desires like this draw maps.
We can learn
he says any heart that indulges in his trial, he failed this test falls into this condition or dug into it, buckles in front of it. It was based on the heart that
a white.is saved on to the heart.
The heart becomes gradually healthy, it's not just it gets worse, it also gets better every time you simply with every time you stand your ground, your main net your posts, you do what you need to be doing you take it seriously. He says listen, until they become two types of parts.
The second one first, he says one part that is black disease can cruising just like the tilted over mode, you can put anything inside the
device was influenced right up right, this is a disease of democracy.
This is like a tilted over mug.
Whenever you come into
this part, does not recognize good any longer,
does not get offended by evil any longer. Except that which is dictated, he literally said except that which is soaked up according to the desires of the person whose desire to become his commandment with regard to
the other part, he said is
one of the means to suffer and apart that is why
many people suffer like the mountain still, some scholars said like the mountains are
not white, like the Nakasone as why the developers don't know it is white collar, white Americans meaning indestructible, a heart that becomes immune to try meaning I'm trying to tell you it's gonna get easier. It's not a constant uphill battle on every level appreciate your struggle, then there will be an autopilot or an easier facing this put in the work and he will meet in 10 steps every step you take is known as promises to us and apart that is why
like the mountain stone with the softer he took out his close up lens to our to my demo.
And it will never be harmed by any trials after that.
So long as the heavens and the earth for me mean so long as universe exists. The exam continues. So join me you need your hearts for
your Arts in Universal purify
and help us find your golden determination to care about
our most prized assets in
the present moment.
So, before anything in the
fifth grade, sorry guys
