00:01:09--> 00:01:11

in this life, and in the life to come.

00:01:13--> 00:01:31

The heart is the most important aspect of this life. It's the most important thing that we have to focus on. Because with neglecting our hearts, we will lose the beauty of this world, and the ultimate happiness in the next life.

00:01:32--> 00:01:55

So we can reach and fulfill our ultimate goal. That is real success in this life, and arriving at the ultimate happiness and joy of the Hereafter, and to make it insha Allah to paradise, by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah to add, why do we talk about the heart?

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

A very important question.

00:02:53--> 00:03:00

There are so many subjects around we can talk about, but why dedicate a whole show on the heart? What do we mean

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

by dedicating

00:03:04--> 00:03:34

quite a long time and talking about the heart? Does it really help us so much? What is the benefit that we can get from the heart and from understanding the rules of the heart? inshallah all these questions will be answered throughout the show. But today, inshallah we'll try, we will try to focus. And we will try to explain why the subject of the heart is of paramount importance, actually still of the utmost importance in our lives.

00:03:36--> 00:04:03

Just going to a very basic level, in our everyday language, when we describe and when we talk about any subject, and which why, or we talk about the core of the matter, the most important aspect of a subject, or the bottom line of any subject, we say, that's the heart of the matter. We say that's the essence. That's the heart. That's the core of this matter. So the heart means the most important aspect.

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

We use that in our everyday language.

00:04:09--> 00:04:24

We describe different things if we want to talk about the most important aspect of anything we say this is the heart of the matter. This is the heart of the issue means that's the reality of it. That's the most important thing of it.

00:04:25--> 00:04:35

That's the central aspect of this thing we are talking about. So when we deal with a problem, we say that this is the heart of the problem. When we talk about

00:04:36--> 00:04:50

physical objects, when we talk about the city, we say this is the heart of the city. It means the most active and the most vibrant, and the most significant and important part of the city were the most important activities take place.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

And even other things, when anything we deal with when we describe the most important thing in it

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

We always describe it as the heart, as the heart and this is the reality of our hearts. Our hearts are the most important thing. In this world,

00:05:13--> 00:05:40

the heart of human beings is the point of focus, the focal point in our existence in this world, that's the reality of the heart. So this is why we will talk in sha Allah. throughout this series about this important subject of the heart, we will try to see what do we mean when we say the heart will try to understand the reality of our hearts? Because

00:05:41--> 00:05:56

from personal experience, I know that the majority of us don't really understand the heart as we should be understanding it, most of us fail to give the heart its real importance and significance.

00:05:57--> 00:06:43

Whereas in the sight of a large penalty, that the heart is the most important thing. First of all, we say the heart plays a major role in human behavior. What you are, what kind of person you are and what kind of person you are going to be, your behavior, your conduct, your whole life is decided by what by what kind of hearts you, you have, your heart decides, decides everything for you. Besides, all these aspects of your life, are decided by the heart. This is why the prophets Allah is Allah says in the Hadith that is narrated by manoppello Bashir, may Allah be pleased with him, which was reported by Bukhari and Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, indeed, in the body,

00:06:43--> 00:06:55

there is a piece of flesh is talking about the heart, there is a piece of flesh in the heart, it is sound, and intact, allow in nothing just at the mobile,

00:06:56--> 00:07:04

either solid, solid, just a local law, if this piece of flesh, if it's sound, and intact, the whole body, all the limbs,

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

will be sound and intact,

00:07:09--> 00:08:02

will either facilitate faster than just a token, and if it's corrupt, if it's spoiled, then the whole body will be spoiled. Indeed, this piece of flesh is the heart. This is the central role that the heart plays in our lives. So our all our conduct, the way we go about the way we carry ourselves in this world, the way we react to different things, the way we see different things, all of this is decided in the heart and by the heart. So what you heard is, this is your reality, this is what kind of person you are. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, if your heart is sound, then all your actions will be sound, you don't have to worry about that.

00:08:03--> 00:08:13

But if your heart is corrupt, all of your body, all of your actions, everything you do, generally speaking, will be corrupt.

00:08:15--> 00:08:34

So this is the central position of the central station, that the heart occupies in our lives in our behavior. And this is a very key point. For those who are after reform those who are concerned with the welfare and the well being of the Muslim Ummah, as individuals, and as a whole nation.

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

If you want to rectify yourself, if you want to improve yourself spiritually, in terms of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala you, your main focus should be on the heart.

00:08:48--> 00:09:11

Because once you get your heart right, all the actions will follow suit. Very simple. Many people pay great attention to their actions, they forget about the heart. So they spend their lives trying to fix trying to fix their actions, trying to fix the deeds, trying to fix some superficial mistakes. And they wasted their time.

00:09:12--> 00:09:58

You have to find the root of the matter. And the root of everything you do, everything you say, is in the heart. So if you manage to get to your heart and fix it and rectify it, everything else will be rectified so easily because everything will follow the heart. So if you have a sound heart, then your actions will be sound, everything you do everything you say, the way you speak, the way you look at things, the way you think all of this is dependent on the heart. So our main focus should be on the heart once we fix it. As I said, everything will follow suit everything will be automatically

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

rectified, and will be centralized in sha Allah. So this is why we talk about the heart.

00:10:07--> 00:10:53

Some of the beautiful statements that were set by one person from the early generations, actually some books trace that back to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but as far as I know, it's not, it's not been traced authentically to the prophets of Allah who said them. But it's a very, it's a very true statement. It says that the heart is the king. The heart is the leader of the whole human being, that's your leader, that's your manager, that's the king. So if the king is righteous, if the leader is righteous, the commander is righteous. The limbs which are the soldiers of that commander, will be also righteous, they will follow the example of their commander. But if the king or the

00:10:53--> 00:11:08

commander is corrupt, then the whole army do, all of the other soldiers would be also corrupt. So the heart is the leadership. Heart is the king, the heart is the commander.

00:11:09--> 00:11:20

So if it's alright, everything will be okay. If your heart is pure, your actions will be pure. If your heart is honest, then your words will be honest, your actions will be honest.

00:11:21--> 00:11:38

So this is why we have to focus on the heart, not on the actions. The actions are the symptoms, the actions are the reflection, what is in our hearts, you will find it mirrored it will be replicated, it will be represented and reflected in our actions.

00:11:40--> 00:11:51

This is why our main focus should be on the heart. Always another reason that makes us focus on the heart is that Allah subhanaw taala is concerned with our hearts.

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

The way Allah subhanaw taala ways up.

00:11:57--> 00:12:09

Our own status is by our hearts. This is why the prophets of Allah Islam says in the authentic hadith narrated by Muslim, he says, In Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah sorry, Monaco.

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

Allah indeed,

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

is not concerned, a lot doesn't look at your looks

00:12:20--> 00:12:37

and your wealth. These things matter very little to Allah, they actually they, they, they carry no weight in the sight of a las panatela. But what really matters in the sight of Allah? Well, I can remember illa kulu become American, what really matters in the sight of Allah

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

are your hearts and your actions.

00:12:44--> 00:12:51

So Allah looks at what Allah or the way a lot of times that are judges us, is by our hearts.

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

And the actions obviously, as we said, are reflection of what is in the heart.

00:12:59--> 00:13:14

So when Allah judges us, when Allah weighs up our situation, he looks at our hearts. That's the essence of our lives. That's the essence of this life. So if Allah subhana wa tada

00:13:15--> 00:13:40

is concerned with the hearts we know that allies the all wise allies, the ongoing, so he knows what to look at. Allah knows what's the most important ally knows what really matters. So from this knowledge, we can arrive at the conclusion that if we want to be better individuals, if we want to be better Muslims, if we want to make it to paradise,

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

focus on your hearts.

00:13:44--> 00:14:19

So hopefully by this, we have come to understand some of the importance and the significance and we hopefully we have justified why we have dedicated this show fully to talk about the heart, the secret of the secrets of the heart, and the world, the whole world of the hearts, and we will inshallah, in the next episodes, we'll try to uncover the rules and the treasures of the world of the heart. So you are invited to join us and benefit from the show until we meet next time. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
