00:08:24--> 00:08:28

I promise last week that After identifying some of the causes

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

that harden our hearts, we talked about how the believers

00:08:36--> 00:08:54

when they listen to the words of a law, or when they listen or when they remember a law or when they are reminded of a law. Their hearts respond to the remembrance of Allah and to the reminder that comes whenever they remember Allah as their hearts respond in humanity.

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

And when they hear the poor as their email, their faith increases.

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

And very often, they shed tears will law he sometimes even understanding the exact meaning of the words you see people whose hearts are softened by the words of Allah azza wa jal.

00:09:15--> 00:09:23

They cry from listening to the Quran. However, nowadays, you and I complain that our hearts have gotten very hard.

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

But we don't.

00:09:27--> 00:09:40

And very often, while we're praying or even remembering, or listening to a hotbar, or someone reminding us of Allah azza wa jal or listening to the poor and we're thinking of all kinds of things, everything other than what we're listening to,

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

and be aware, and we have spoken about this in the past, that hearts may die

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

and may get damaged beyond repair. And we cannot afford to do so because on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna will

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Judges, according to the purity of our hearts,

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

and on that day nothing is going to benefit us nothing

00:10:11--> 00:10:26

except the state of our hearts. Not only that, but even in this life, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not look at us in our images, or our bodies. Your physiques will not do you any good,

00:10:27--> 00:10:53

how handsome you are, how athletic you may be, none of that matters to a loss of Hannah without it because he created all of that. And he granted you all of that what a loss of Hannah with Allah rather looks at and examines is the state of your heart, and the quality of your deeds. And the quality of your deeds is a reflection of what is in the heart. And that's why it's very important to monitor the heart.

00:10:54--> 00:11:15

And we say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is your spiritual heart that determines whether you're a good person or not. And last week, we decided the verses from the Quran Surah Surah, eight. The first is the first two or three and if for Allah Subhana. Allah describes the believers. true believers are those whose hearts are soften

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

and are in a state of humility when a loss of habitat is remembered. And by the way, there are other very scary verses in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala talks about hypocrites being those

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

and disbelievers being those that when a lot is mentioned or remembered alone.

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

They get irritated they get disgusted.

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

Hulu Latina, their hearts shrink. They like you don't want to talk about that.

00:11:46--> 00:11:53

way they don't care what that even mean, dude, he either homeless sub zero. And then when other than allies mentioned, they get excited.

00:11:55--> 00:12:08

And unfortunately, we and we are too. We are to watch ourselves, we could actually be of those people, we may have elements of that disease. When someone comes and talks about a law

00:12:09--> 00:12:22

or when a law is mentioned alone, you know, you're like, Okay, anything else that we can talk about something fun, but when it is when someone talks about comi Oh, everybody's excited. Oh, everybody has something to say.

00:12:23--> 00:12:31

When we talk about these kind of things, or celebrities and people that really don't care about you, and they don't care what you what you think of them,

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

we get excited. And we're we're all of a sudden part of the conversation. But when it's about a law

00:12:39--> 00:12:48

or anything that has to do with the law, what is the reminder that addresses the heart, we get irritated This is a sign of a disease heart

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

and that's why we have to catch ourselves. So how can we fix them?

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

I promise you that this will be inshallah, the focus of today's

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

10 things. Remember that

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

first and foremost, remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.

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

muraki is a key word and Buddha, decree law.

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

Why?

00:13:18--> 00:13:42

Because Allah subhanaw taala describes the believers to be a Latina am an otaku in Nakuru between those who believe and whose hearts find peace and serenity in the remembrance of Allah. Then Allah says, Allah basically lay in Peru indeed, in the remembrance of Allah hearts find peace and tranquility.

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

A man complained to adolescent psychology in an ethical behavior call

00:13:52--> 00:13:53

at any minute, Vic.

00:13:55--> 00:14:15

He said, My heart is just my heart is like a rock. He said, bring it closer to the remembrance of Allah gradually, because it's a tough thing. It's not easy. And I'm not talking about just saying hello and hamdulillah once in a while, no, we're talking about Madame oma continuously to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala add on a regular basis.

00:14:16--> 00:14:26

And when I say remember Allah azza wa jal remember, contemplate, ponder, think about what you say. You know, very often we sit and we say some calculus of help. Sometimes you see people doing the spear or the

00:14:27--> 00:14:32

husband, what is that? That's not to say the whole thing. So Panama and think about

00:14:34--> 00:14:54

and said, Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, you under the enamel of Kuru la haidakhan coffee at all you believe remember how much the remembrance of Allah clears the heart and as it has him of Allah said majelis with decree my hair to an enemy, want to fulfill Calvin who showed he said that the

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

Vic the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

It revived

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

The knowledge and it produces in the heart humidity. And that's what we want.

00:15:08--> 00:15:33

That's exactly what we want. So the remembrance of Allah remember Allah azza wa jal constantly always and that will bring peace and tranquility to your heart. And I know that it's not easy some you know, it's not easy but you need to get used to it. And in order for you to really get used to it and love to do it, one of the one of the advisors is to know about a lot so to learn about the law, we don't know enough about allies origin.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

When you get to know about allies origin

00:15:38--> 00:15:42

you will love a lot when you and when you love Allah, you will remember him much.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

Number two,

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

reading the Quran

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

reading the Quran

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

Allah subhana wa tada says, fn is a boon for America when

00:15:57--> 00:16:00

in fact reading and I was just

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

looking this today

00:16:05--> 00:16:12

there is a difference between reading and reciting the Quran. So reading and actually reciting the Quran.

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

Well, I mean in English it won't, it will not make any sense but the word that is used in the Quran is to our

00:16:22--> 00:16:38

Latina Latina who Kitab is Luna haka hilarity. And there is a difference between tilava and Terra. Terra is more general. Any flower is Kira. But Tina is more specific and Allah Subhana Allah tells us that the believers due to our

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

from telework, it is reading with the intention and the determination to follow.

00:16:47--> 00:16:56

Yes, Lu, tele teller when Allah subhanaw taala says that, that when the night follows the day, right.

00:16:58--> 00:17:25

So it is reading with the intent and the determination to follow what you're reading. And in order to follow what you're reading, you have to ponder upon it. And what the Quran does is for an exposes us to see if we allow full access, if we allow the poor and full access to our hearts will light it will purify it, because that is one of the functions and one of the benefits of reading the product. But we need to read it with the intention to follow it.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

That's why one of the Sahaba said

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

Moroccan FC Allah kita villa in Abuja to Lima rasa TNF alpha.

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

out of his humility, he said that every time I expose myself or to the end or I look at myself through the air,

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

I find myself to be well established in hypocrisy.

00:17:49--> 00:18:18

See, the Quran has what he meant is that that the Quran basically exposes him, and this is out of his humility. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them. They were very humble people. Now we read the plan, we think we're the best of the believers. The Quran exposes you, and the Quran answers your questions. But it also it will fix the heart sometimes it's a painful process, but it's very necessary. So reading the Quran, number three,

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

maintaining the for almost half hour

00:18:24--> 00:18:30

for the obligatory acts, whatever Allah subhanaw taala has obligated us to do.

00:18:32--> 00:18:51

You see many people sometimes when they want to do to, to, to heal the hearts and when they want to get closer to a loss of habitat. They try to engage or do some some voluntary deeds, but they neglect the mandatory deeds. The things that are loss of habitat ordered us to do.

00:18:52--> 00:19:15

There is no way Your heart will be purified. If you do not get closer to Allah azza wa jal and we know that reading the Quran will bring you closer to Allah remembrance of Allah will bring you closer to Allah. But there is something that will bring you even closer to Allah and it's even more important than those two. And that is to obey the commandments of Allah azza wa jal. In fact, the law says that, when I talk about

00:19:19--> 00:19:47

my servant, my slave will not get closer to me than anything with anything or through any means better and more beloved to me than that which I have obligated him to do. In fact, Allah subhanaw taala explicitly in the Quran tells us that it is the nature of Salah Allah didn't make us pray five times a day because he wants to basically aggravate us and he really needs us to pray five times a day what law Allah subhanaw taala doesn't need it.

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

In fact, the law said if the beginning if all of you if all mankind were to come together and have the heart of the most pure of the of the purest, and have the most

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

pious have all of them that will not increase a loss of handle Dallas Kingdom in any way. Masada Delica humor, Keyshia and if everyone was to disobey Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah, Allah Subhana Allah will not be harmed in any way.

00:20:14--> 00:20:50

But it is for our own good. Allah subhanho wa Taala knew that you and I need five times a day to pull out of this busy lifestyle that we have this lifestyle that poisons the hearts and ruins the soul. We need to pull out five times a day, take a break. take a timeout five times a day we have five timeouts come and try to refocus and connect with Allah subhana wa tada collect with our master, with our ultimate coach. So we can be directed five times a day we need to do that Allah Subhana Allah tells us it is Salah, by design

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

purifies us in a solid fashion, it will mocha.

00:20:57--> 00:21:13

It's a purification process. So a person who does not pray five times a day, who turns away from Allah Subhana Allah ignores the call of Allah, and there is no way I mean that person is headed towards towards damnation, that person, His heart is dying.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

So you need that.

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

Then after that, the fourth,

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

the fourth principle, and experiment and no affiliate law to do voluntary, voluntary deeds, nothing.

00:21:28--> 00:21:48

And I tell you, when you connect with Salah with the fog, and you fall in love with salah and it becomes the most beloved thing that you can do the most beloved activity just like it was with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and you get a taste of it, you will not have enough, you will want to do more. So you will be more keen on praying the sooner before and after. whenever you can.

00:21:50--> 00:22:00

And you become so connected to it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said my servant, that Allah the Almighty said that my servant continues to do those voluntary deeds, my as I do,

00:22:04--> 00:22:11

that the person continues to do go out of his way or her way to do good deeds to get closer to Allah until Allah loves them.

00:22:12--> 00:22:20

You know, when someone comes when when you're when when your employer pays you gives you your paycheck at the end of the of the month.

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

You don't go to them and say, Oh, thank you very much. I really love you for doing this. Because you're pretty much getting paid for what you do. But if your employer comes and says, here's a bonus,

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

here's a little gift,

00:22:34--> 00:22:50

here's a little extra, you're gonna go like, what did I do to deserve this? Well, I see that you're a hard working person, here's here's a little bit extra. And they continue to do that go out of their way to make you feel better about yourself and about your job. like Google.

00:22:52--> 00:22:59

They provide you this environment where they give you extras and extras, what happens, you're going to love that employer.

00:23:01--> 00:23:29

You're gonna love that employer. Extra, when you do extra for the sake of a lot out of love Allah Subhana Allah would love you know that Allah needs it like we need to be paid, and we need the compensation. But because of loss of habitat, and no knows that this is a sincere gesture on your part, and a loss of habitat and loves those who who love them. In fact, a loss of hundreds, if you get to do that, if you get to do that, then Allah know that Allah has loved you before he loved him.

00:23:31--> 00:24:01

The fifth element that will help purify our soul or our hearts soft in our heart, rather, is the remembrance of death. And I know this is not a pleasant topic, and no one wants to Brother don't remember as of death. You know, this is very, it's very ironic how we try to escape this fact. We try to avoid thinking about it. Like we're going to live forever, like we're going to keep death somehow that will go to full death. It will not happen.

00:24:02--> 00:24:14

It never happened and everyone shall die. This is a fact. There is no dispute. Even atheists, those who don't believe in Africa or those who don't believe in Allah, as long as everybody knows that they're going to die one day,

00:24:15--> 00:24:32

sooner or later. So remembering it is better for us. It will soften our hearts. And it's very obvious why it does that. But that said, the cool note was the article.

00:24:33--> 00:24:46

Tada an extra recurrent motif Panda Panda has to do. Here's how it heals the heart. He said, I would love that said whosoever remembers death a lot. Right? He will.

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

He is these moments of joy that usually distract us and make us forget about the reality of life. That will decrease because you will remember that you'll become more of

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

series, right, it will increase his level of seriousness. And he said Wakanda has a job, and it will reduce jealousy, you will not be jealous or envious of people, you know, we're all gonna die.

00:25:15--> 00:25:35

There is no reason to be jealous. All of this was gone, everything that we have is going to be gone. And part of what reminds us of death is to participate in genocide. But not only that, but also to go to the graveyard. And visit do it. I urge you, I suggest that you do this. Go, of course, we have one of the most, you know, well organized.

00:25:36--> 00:25:57

graveyards, the cemetery here at Westminster, I suggest that you go one day, you might want to take a little pad with you just to write how you're feeling, go and reflect go and look at that at the headstones. I'm sure that you that you will run into someone who has the same year, the same birth year as you.

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

It's a great reminder, by the way, just look at the headstone

00:26:02--> 00:26:06

and maybe perhaps maybe the exact same day someone was born in the same day.

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

You will find people who are younger than you.

00:26:10--> 00:26:19

And you'll also find people who are older than you. I think the oldest one bury their fat remember correctly was I think a lady who was 102 years old.

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

She ended up there at the same place as one who lived one month.

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

This is the end of it. This is the reality of life.

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

This will soften your heart.

00:26:32--> 00:26:41

I say this and ask Allah azza wa jal to soften our hearts and make us of those who listen and follow the best where they listen to a whole lot of color Safarova Hollywood a confessor filled with filler

00:26:53--> 00:27:11

hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Safa, well that an amorous said is more related to Dr. Culver. What was a key he was a hero who and excel in October it was inevitable Allah has his origin. What is still with Adam, Adam, Adam, sorry, Adam.

00:27:13--> 00:27:17

Rahim Allah, Sadat will be murrini because he was

00:27:18--> 00:27:21

with Jana who will be a navy seal with Vic

00:27:26--> 00:27:29

Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

a look at a few salvia he looked. So the

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

next so that for either who naza our stone for our tablet, so

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

we're in either z hat that

00:27:45--> 00:27:52

we're running at the Corolla was a virgin caliber on an APU v McCann we actually won.

00:27:54--> 00:28:00

The CIC element is seeking forgiveness and repenting to a loss of Hannah Horton.

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

Everyone fine said that the hearts

00:28:05--> 00:28:54

rust, they are us. There is this buildup that takes place. And if it continued, if it continues to happen, it will ruin the heart or kill it. So he said and the way to basically purify the heart, the way to polish it is through seeking forgiveness from Allah and remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Allah has the processes and said that when you when we make when we sin, when we commit sins, there it leaves a mark a spot on the heart, the heart is spotted with a dark spot. And if we continue to do more, since it will cover up the heart and a loss of how to assess that in the Quran in surah, moto 1514. Right. So he said the way to counter that is by seeking forgiveness from Allah

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

azza wa jal, because that will purify the heart.

00:28:58--> 00:29:05

The seventh element is being in the company of the righteous of righteous people and pious people.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

And I will serve your mood. So to solve the enormous I have

00:29:12--> 00:29:17

to be in the company of those people, there are some people that when you're in their company, they bring the best out of you.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

Right, your heart softens those type of people you need to hang out with them.

00:29:24--> 00:29:48

As opposed to those people that you think are fun to be around. You go kickin it with them, but there will come a day where they're going to kick you out of their life. And they will come a day where Allah subhanaw taala says that close friends will be enemies of one another. pointing fingers at each other pressing charges at each other coming at each other's throats.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Oh, they're gonna forget all these vuca gatherings that they had. They're gonna come at each other's throats on the Day of Judgment seeking a good deed from each other. Oh, he is the one that ruined me. He's

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

That gave me that idea. He's the one that distracted. Well, we do it in this life. When people end up in court or they end up getting in trouble, they point fingers at other people. Imagine what will happen on the Day of Judgment. That's why it's gonna take a long time. 50,000 years is the length of a day of judgment, people making all kinds of claims against each other. But Allah says that they will be declared enemies of one another. And if

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

I do,

00:30:26--> 00:31:04

that they will be enemies of one another except those of piety except pious people. So you might as well surrounding yourself with as many people as possible, people that when you see them, it softens your hearts. And it reminds you of a loss of habitat and let alone talk to them. Now, if you don't have enough of those people, if you don't have some of those people around you, one of the ways to do it is to read in the in the Sierra in the in the lives to look into the lives and the history of the pious people and the scholars of the past and never have easier Ilona your software to solve him.

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

A man can to either widget to me, I'll be

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

able to turn over to Elijah Muhammad

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

Rahim Allah.

00:31:14--> 00:31:35

Jaffa said that I used to whenever I feel that my heart is getting hard. I would go and I will just look and stare at Mohammed devinwatson he was one of the greatest scholars, Rahim Allah that a man of great virtues is just looking at sitting with him that will increase my name

00:31:36--> 00:31:47

allama therminal who observed if it dunia what Emily feel sorry her whatever you're actually our robotic, female in the law human name and amaroo test you

zero tomorrow and in Bella

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

arena. We had him

00:31:59--> 00:32:14

from an emerald ash who went to Allah azza wa jal and he died when he had a lot of hands on with the Anna what kind of a pseudo masala while he was selling them Andrew Aloma Dini Allahumma Sydney

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

Academy do it someone love radicchio send them along the NFC taqwa Zeki, her and

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

her Mola

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

there are three more elements left.

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

The

00:32:28--> 00:32:38

eighth element is to refrain from dunia and to remember how short this life is. And not indulge into it.

00:32:39--> 00:33:05

And only get out of it as much as you can as you need. I tell you dunia it's very distracting. It's overwhelming, by the way. And here's dunia is indeed. Darrell, it's the home of deception. It deceives you it tells you oh you can get a lot of me come here chase me. And you chase Jr. and it wears you out and you get out of it with nothing you don't get except that which Allah has written for you already.

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

Right? exhausts you. In fact, dunia sometimes comes in tensas through all kinds of means and outlets and right, all kinds of nice. Oh, you want Do you want a secure future? You know, do this. So now exhaust yourself in order to have a comfortable future or retirement in this life, you will be too exhausted. You'll be worn out by them that you can't you don't get to enjoy it. And then if you enjoy it, so what? How many years? Are you going to enjoy? Allah subhanaw taala

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

McDonald's city, some

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

dude.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

What if they enjoy it for few years?

00:33:48--> 00:33:51

And then comes to them that which they were promised?

00:33:52--> 00:33:56

How will whatever they enjoyed will avail them? How's it going to benefit them?

00:33:58--> 00:34:37

It's all gone. Someone was telling me somehow I think it was in this machine about a couple of years ago that one of one of the wealthiest people in his in his hometown, basically, you know, worked so hard on you know, to become successful. But he didn't get a chance during a distracted him that the day he had he had that one day, I think he had a heart attack or he had some some something. And he knew it was all it was. That was it. So as they were taking him out to the ambulance, he turned around and looked at his powers, this big, huge Villa that he had. And he he started spitting in that direction and discussed

00:34:38--> 00:34:41

as if he's saying, I work too hard for you and now

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

this is

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

the ninth element is to visit sick people and people who are you know, who are suffering or people who are dying to visit to visit. It's a great reminder. It's a great reminder

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

The boundaries and the blessings that we have so that we can take advantage of that. And also that one day will end up in their place. And number 10, which is the most important is to beg Allah azza wa jal and to ask of Allah azza wa jal to invoke, and pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala to soften your heart to soften our hearts,

00:35:20--> 00:35:37

the process of sending us to do it. So let us do it in Begala as we can. Because at the end of the day, if Allah subhanaw taala does not give us still fearfully but lost, that doesn't help us succeed in that endeavor. Nothing will help these hearts. I asked Allah azza wa jal to purify our hearts, revive our souls

00:35:38--> 00:36:07

and make us of those who are beloved who are loved by him and those who love Him. Brothers and sisters last week and Hamdulillah, we had a successful event we had the the blood drive, as for those who were questioning or had some, some confusion about whether it's legitimate, whether it's, it's okay or not, islamically, I can tell you with great level of comfort and confidence, I'm confident 100% that not only is it okay, but it's it's a virtue.

00:36:09--> 00:36:20

And as I said, a loss of habitat, as I said, and I put it on my Facebook, right, I said that give blood save life, you save one life.

00:36:21--> 00:36:27

It is as if you saved humanity. And somehow Allah after I put that the next day, I come to the machine and

00:36:28--> 00:36:38

we open that book of the valley that we read from. And it happens that that that the next section that we were reading from is where loss of habitat it says says that in the plan,

00:36:40--> 00:36:55

I have no doubt it's a great use. And for those who say, Oh, we don't know where the blood is going to go, it doesn't matter, it's going to go to use a good use to save a life of a human being. Regardless of that, who that person is even a criminal has the right to be saved, and then tried.

00:36:57--> 00:37:04

Right? Because it will only be used in desperate situations whenever someone is dying or someone is in dire need of it.

00:37:05--> 00:37:24

And when someone is in that state, regardless of who they are. It is it is uncomfortable it is it is mandatory upon us to help them and save it. If you see someone someone drowning, you're not going to say Oh, first of all, let's find out what is what is your faith? And what do you believe in and you're going to save them

00:37:25--> 00:37:30

regardless. So so it is it is it is okay. Besides,

00:37:31--> 00:38:15

the blood that you give will not be used right away anyways, it's gonna take a while before it's ready to be used. And as I said, you never know you might end up you need it, you might end up using it yourself or someone that you really care about. So Alhamdulillah we had a successful event, we had 80 pints collected last week, which is by the way, is still considered to be a good record. We didn't break our record, our record was 92 but the organizers are the co sponsors Kaiser Permanente, they were telling us that the average they collect from any community center, the average that they collect from other places is 4040. And ours was double that amount. So inshallah my hope and my plan

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

shall tell is for us to beat that is our next time and maybe double that next time we have this event. I asked Allah subhana wa tada to accept from those who gave and those who attempted to give and those who and by the way, you can still go and give on your own you can schedule an appointment, and also the organizers and May Allah Subhana Allah make it put to good use me, Robin attina, Jr, hustler, trophy Lafferty hustler, tokina, Devin, no, Bella, palooka, Nevada.

00:38:49--> 00:38:59

A la macchina fusina taqwa zakia and humans occur until you harm Allah, Allah medical history as a clinician and akula what I know

00:39:00--> 00:39:02

about the law in the law. So anyway,

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

back to the current

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

law.

00:39:15--> 00:39:20

Because you're pretty much getting paid for what you do. But if your employer comes and says, here's a bonus,

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

here's a little gift.

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

Here's a little extra.

00:39:27--> 00:39:40

He's gonna go like, what did I do to deserve this? Well, I see that you're a hard working person. here's here's a little bit extra. And they continue to do that go out of their way to make you feel better about yourself and about your job. like Google.

00:39:42--> 00:39:49

They provide you this environment where they give you extras and extras, what happens, you're going to love that employer.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

You're going to love that employer. Extra. We need to do an extra for the sake of a lot out of love Allah Subhana Allah would love you know that Allah needs this

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

Like we need to be paid, and we need the compensation, but because of loss of habitat and no knows that this is a sincere gesture on your part, and a loss of habitat and loves those who, who love him. In fact, a loss of hundreds, if you get to do that, if you get to do that, then Allah know that Allah has loved you before he loved him.

00:40:20--> 00:40:50

The fifth element that will help purify our soul or our heart soft in our heart, rather, is the remembrance of death. And I know this is not a pleasant topic, and no one wants to Brother don't remember his death. You know, this is very, it's very ironic how we try to escape this fact. We try to avoid thinking about it, like we're going to live forever, like we're going to escape death, somehow, that will go to full death, it will not happen.

00:40:52--> 00:41:03

It never happened, and everyone shall die. This is a fact. There is no dispute. Even atheists, those who don't believe in Africa or those who don't believe in Allah, as long as everybody knows that they're going to die one day,

00:41:04--> 00:41:36

sooner or later. So remembering it is better for us. It will soften our hearts. And it's very obvious why it does that. But Buddha said, to the cool note was the attitude toward Tada, Buddha, an extra different multiple law what Allah has to do. Here's how it heals the heart. He said, I would love that said whosoever remembers death a lot. Right? He will.

00:41:37--> 00:42:03

He is these moments of joy that usually distract us and make us forget about the reality of life. That will decrease because you will remember that it will become more serious, right, it will increase his level of seriousness. And he said what Allah has to do, and it will reduce jealousy, you will not be jealous, or envious of people, you know, we're all gonna die.

00:42:05--> 00:42:25

There is no reason to be jealous. All of this has gone everything that we have is going to be gone. And part of what reminds us of death is to participate in genocide. But not only that, but also to go to the graveyard and visit do it. I urge you, I suggest that you do this. Go, of course, we have one of the most, you know, well organized.

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

graveyards, the cemetery here at Westminster, I suggest that you go one day, you might want to take a little pad with you just to write how you're feeling, go and reflect go and look at that at the headstones. I'm sure that you that you will run into someone who has the same year, the same birth year as you.

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

It's a great reminder, by the way, just look at the headstone

00:42:52--> 00:42:56

and maybe perhaps maybe the exact same day someone was born in the same day.

00:42:57--> 00:42:59

You will find people who are younger than you

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

and you'll also find people who are older than you. I think the oldest one bury their family member correctly was I think a lady who was 102 years old.

00:43:11--> 00:43:15

She ended up there at the same place as one who lived one month.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

This is the end of it this is the reality of life.

00:43:20--> 00:43:21

This will soften your heart.

00:43:22--> 00:43:30

I say this an ask Allah azza wa jal to soften our hearts and make us of those who listen and follow the bishop with a listen to a holo head of cola. cola honey, welcome to so filled with Philip

00:43:42--> 00:44:00

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Safa well that an amorous said is more related to Iraq there was a key he was a hero who excelled in October it was inevitable Allah azza wa jal what is still what Adam and Adam sorry, Adam

00:44:02--> 00:44:06

called, Rahim Allah, Sadat will be a murrini because he was

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

with Jana who became a minister. He will

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

be one

00:44:16--> 00:44:19

under Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon in the

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

pit of your pelvis he looked so the

00:44:24--> 00:44:29

next so that for either who knows our stuff or whatever, so

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

we're in either z hepcat

00:44:35--> 00:44:42

we're running at the Corolla was a virgin kelebihan at APU v McCann we actually won.

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

The CIC element is seeking forgiveness and repenting to a loss of Hannah Horton

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

said that the hearts

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

rust they are us. There is this buildup that takes place

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

And if it continues, if it continues to happen, it will ruin the heart or kill it. So he said and the way to basically purify the heart, the way to polish it is through seeking forgiveness from Allah and remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in a hurry had the processor and said that when you when we make when we sin, when we commit sins, there it leaves a mark a spot on the heart, the heart is spotted with a dark spot. And if we continue to do more, since it will cover up the heart and a loss of how to assess that in the Quran in surah, moto 1514, right. So he said the way to counter that is by seeking forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal, because that will purify the

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

heart.

00:45:47--> 00:45:55

The seventh element is being in the company of the righteous of righteous people, and pious people.

00:45:56--> 00:46:00

And I will serve your mood. So to solve this enormous habit to, to,

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

to be in the company of those people, there are some people that when you are in their company, they bring the best out of you.

00:46:08--> 00:46:12

Right, your heart softens those type of people you need to hang out with them.

00:46:14--> 00:46:31

As opposed to those people that you think are fun to be around. You go kickin it with them, but there will come a day where they're gonna kick you out of their life. And they will come a day where Allah subhanaw taala says that close friends will be enemies of one another,

00:46:32--> 00:46:37

pointing fingers at each other, pressing charges at each other coming at each other's throats.

00:46:39--> 00:47:10

Oh, they're gonna forget all these vuca gatherings that they had. They're gonna come at each other's throats on the Day of Judgment, seeking a good deed from each other. Oh, he is the one that ruined me. He's the one that gave me that idea. He's the one that distracted. Well, we do it in this life. When people end up in court, or they end up getting in trouble. They point fingers at other people. Imagine what will happen on the Day of Judgment. That's why it's gonna take a long time. 50,000 years is the length of the Day of Judgment, people making all kinds of claims against each other. But a law says that they will be declared enemies of one another and

00:47:12--> 00:47:14

even liberals and I do know

00:47:16--> 00:47:54

that they will be enemies of one another except those of piety except pious people. So you might as well surrounding yourself with as many people as possible people that when you see them, it softens your hearts. And it reminds you of a loss of data, let alone talk to them. Now, if you don't have enough of those people, if you don't have some of those people around you, one of the ways to do it is to read in the in the Sierra in the in the lives to look into the lives and the history of the pious people and the scholars of the past and never have easier Ilona It was pretty solid him

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

a man come to get to me I'll be

00:47:59--> 00:48:02

able to turn over to Elijah Mohammed. V Rahim Allah.

00:48:04--> 00:48:18

Jaffa shaman said that I used to whenever I feel that my heart is getting hard. I would go and I will just look and stare at Mohammed devinwatson he was one of the greatest scholars. Rahim Allah,

00:48:19--> 00:48:24

man of great virtues is just looking at sitting with him. That will increase my Eman

00:49:05--> 00:49:10

Academy do it some Allahu Allah who will send them along the NFC taqwa Zeki, her and

00:49:12--> 00:49:12

her Mona,

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

there are three more elements left.

00:49:16--> 00:49:17

The

00:49:18--> 00:49:28

eighth element is to refrain from dunia and to remember how short this life is and not indulge into it.

00:49:29--> 00:49:54

And only get out of it as much as you can as you need. I tell you dunia is very distracting. It's overwhelming, by the way. And here's dunia is indeed their own world. It's the home of deception. It deceives you it tells you oh you can get a lot of me come here chase me and you chase Jr. and it wears you out and you get out of it with nothing you don't get except that which Allah has written for you already.

00:49:56--> 00:50:00

You exhaust you in fact dunia sometimes comes into

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

tensors through all kinds of means and outlets and right, all kinds of means, Oh, you want Do you want a secure future, you know, do this. So now you exhaust yourself in order to have a comfortable future or retirement in this life, you will be too exhausted, you'll be worn out by them that you can't you don't get to enjoy it and at the end if you enjoy it, so what? How many years? Are you going to enjoy? Allah subhanaw taala says fr is a Madonna who studied so much. Can you I don't wanna and home Academy motto? What if they enjoy it for few years?

00:50:38--> 00:50:40

And then comes to them that which they were promised?

00:50:42--> 00:50:46

How will whatever they enjoyed will avail them? How is it going to benefit them?

00:50:47--> 00:51:27

It's all gone. Someone was telling me somehow I think it was in this machine about a couple of years ago that one of one of the wealthiest people in his in his hometown, basically, you know, worked so hard on you know, to become successful. But he didn't get a chance. During a distracted him that the day he had he had that one day, I think he had a heart attack or he had some, some something. And he knew it was it was that was it. So as they were taking him out to the ambulance, he turned around, looked at his powers, this big, huge Villa that he had. And he he started spitting in that direction, and discussed

00:51:28--> 00:51:31

as if he saying, I work too hard for you. And now

00:51:34--> 00:51:34

this is

00:51:36--> 00:52:09

the ninth element is to visit sick people and people who are you know, who are suffering or people who are dying to visit to visit. It's a great reminder. It's a great reminder of the bounties and the blessings that we have so that we can take advantage of that. And also that one day will end up in their place. And number 10 which is the most important is to beg Allah azza wa jal and to ask of Allah azza wa jal to invoke, and pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala to soften your heart to soften our hearts.

00:52:10--> 00:52:27

The process of sending us to do it. So let us do it in Begala as we can, because at the end of the day, if Allah subhanaw taala does not give us still fearful if Allah doesn't help us succeed in that endeavor, nothing will help these hearts. I asked Allah azza wa jal to purify our hearts, revive our souls

00:52:28--> 00:52:57

and make us of those who are beloved who are loved by him and those who love Him. Brothers and sisters last week and Hamdulillah, we had a successful event we had the the blood drive, as for those who were questioning or had some, some confusion about whether it's legitimate, whether it's, it's okay or not, islamically, I can tell you with great level of comfort and confidence, I'm confident 100% that not only is it okay, but it's it's a virtue.

00:52:59--> 00:53:09

And as I said, a loss of habitat, as I said, and I put it on my you know, Facebook, right, I said that give blood save life, you save one life.

00:53:11--> 00:53:17

It is as if you saved humanity. And somehow ama after I put that the next day, I come to the machine and

00:53:18--> 00:53:28

we will open that book of headings that we read from. And it happens that that that the next section that we were reading from is where loss of habitat it says says that in the plan,

00:53:29--> 00:53:45

I have no doubt, it's a great use. And for those who say, Oh, we don't know where the blood is going to go, it doesn't matter, it's going to go to use a good use to save a life of a human being. Regardless of that, who that person is even a criminal has the right to be saved. And then tried.

00:53:47--> 00:53:53

Because it will only be used in desperate situations whenever someone is dying or someone is in dire need of it.

00:53:55--> 00:54:13

And when someone is in that state, regardless of who they are. It is it is uncomfortable it is it is mandatory upon us to help them and save it. If you see someone someone drowning, you're not going to say Oh, first of all, let's find out what is what is your faith? And what do you believe in and you're going to save them

00:54:14--> 00:54:59

regardless. So so it is it is it is okay. Besides, the blood that you give will not be used right away anyways, it's gonna take a while before it's ready to be used. And as I said, you never know you might end up you need it, you might end up using it yourself or someone that you really care about. So Alhamdulillah we had a successful event, we had 80 pints collected last week, which is by the way, is still considered to be a good record. We didn't break our record, our record was 92. But the organizers are the co sponsors Kaiser Permanente. They were telling us that the average they collect from any community center, the average that they collect from other places is 4040.

00:55:00--> 00:55:43

And ours was double that amount. So inshallah my hope and my plan shall tell is for us to beat that is our next time and maybe double that next time we have this event I asked Allah subhana wa tada to accept from those who who gave and those who attempted to give those who. And by the way, you can still go and give on your own you can schedule an appointment, and also the organizers and may have lots of countdown and make it put to good use.
