la for you

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

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

For we know that from you we have come around to you

00:00:33--> 00:00:38

how fortunate we are to be bestowed the ability of loving

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

this is the only love that lasts forever.

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

The love that remains true.

00:00:53--> 00:01:30

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome to the secrets of the heart, all praises due to Allah, we praise Him, we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness and we seek refuge of Allah. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils ourselves and the evils of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide, I bear witness that no one has the right to be worshipped. But Allah alone who has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi, WA Alayhi, wa sallam,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

this

00:01:33--> 00:01:51

segment of Secrets of the heart, we will try to deal with another important aspect about the heart, and about some of the signs that tell us something about the state of the heart, in terms of its health, in terms of its well being, or

00:01:52--> 00:02:35

whether our hearts are healthy, or our hearts are suffering from some diseases that we need to treat. And all the knowledge that we present during this show is meant to be practical. And it's meant for us to work according to that knowledge. Because if knowledge doesn't give action, if it doesn't, if not, it doesn't give you guidance to act, then it becomes pointless and might be used against you on the Day of Judgment. So this is why we are very careful to present the knowledge in a very simple format, very simple style, that hopefully all of us can relate to the information we mentioned. And we can benefit from that. And I'm saying that because I do benefit from the not from

00:02:35--> 00:03:18

the points we present here. as any other viewer, we have to work hard in our hearts, we have to maintain our hearts because we said the heart is the most important aspect, in a human being. If it's right, if it's sound, then everything else will follow suit as we said previously, now, I believe we have established with proof we have sub substantiated to a point that if the heart is healthy, then the heart will do its job. And the heart only feels tranquil. The heart feels and lives in real happiness only if it fulfills its duty which has been attached to a Lost Planet Allah, knowing Allah through his names, through His attributes that are there in the old iron and

00:03:18--> 00:03:34

authentics are now being so much immersed in them comprehending the meanings, and then living through their meanings. Dealing with a loss of penalty, according to what his names and attributes entails, according to the knowledge they give us.

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

Some people might say that, you know, I try to do this,

00:03:41--> 00:04:30

I try to learn more about a las panatela I try to read the words because they read the words of Allah read the Quran, because reading the Koran is one of the gardens of Paradise on this earth. When you feel that you are reading the words spoken by Allah, the Almighty, you're reading his own words that he spoke himself personally. You imagine the privilege Allah has given you that you can recite the same words Allah said himself, you know, in speaking on the human level, when you admire a person, let's say a president or king, you know, a leader or a celebrity, you like to repeat their own words, especially if they have some, some kind of a cliche or a catchphrase, you like to repeat

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

that and you feel so much honored, so much privileged, that you are saying the same words that the one you admire speaks? What about speaking the same, exactly the same words? A last panel Adana himself spoke a lie, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, a lie the Most Merciful? Allah, the Almighty, Allah whose knowledge has encompassed everything, Allah who is greater than everything, Allah who has kept everything in record and he wrote

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

Everything that happened at everything that will happen 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth, colossal panel.

00:05:10--> 00:05:41

Imagine you are speaking his own words, that's such a great privilege. But some people say, you know, when I recite the Quran, when I try to focus on the names and attributes of Allah, I don't feel I don't find myself I don't find my heart. And I feel you know, that's not my, my place. But when I listen to music, when I, you know, mixed with people who always commit sins, I find myself. So they have a problem here, they say, because you stated that

00:05:42--> 00:05:58

the heart has been created to recognize a lot, and it will only find itself will only find peace and happiness and tranquility. By knowing Allah subhanaw taala being always mindful and thoughtful of Allah, this is what I tried, and my heart didn't feel comfortable, we say,

00:05:59--> 00:06:51

yes, the hearts only feel comfortable. The hearts only feel comfortable when they are attached to a loss of what to add. But when you neglect your heart, and when you poison poison your heart for quite a long time. What happens, your heart is ill is extremely ill is in a very bad state, very critical state. And this is exactly like someone who's been who's used to bad types of food, harmful food, for example, those who, let's say those who drink fizzy drinks, Coke, etc, these soft drinks, we know that they are not good for the body, everyone knows that. And many people use them actually, to, you know, when they have when the sink is blocked, they use it to unblock the sink. And many

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

people use it for, you know, cleaning, just like any detergents.

00:06:58--> 00:07:10

So any person who's used to who's used to bad habits, eating habits, and they eat unhealthy food, and they are so much used to it, when you present them or when you

00:07:11--> 00:07:16

you know, give them a healthy diet or a healthy system.

00:07:17--> 00:07:34

They don't, they can't, they can't make themselves follow that system or that diet. They cannot, they don't feel comfortable. They don't feel well. And the stomach actually doesn't feel comfortable and they might have some digestive problems.

00:07:35--> 00:07:58

They might suffer from indigestion from different things, different symptoms, but you know, the food is healthy, the food is good. So why are they suffering? Why do you think you know they cannot adopt or they cannot adapt to the healthy food. Why? Because they have neglected they have abused their system for quite a long time

00:07:59--> 00:08:33

that the system has been derailed. Now to bring it back, it's not easy job, it's a very difficult thing. The same applies to your heart. Now those people used to bad habits, if you take them back to right habits to good habits, they won't feel healthy, they will suffer they will have to suffer. So, you need this transitional state where you will suffer and you might feel weaker until your body until your system adapts to the healthy food, then you will have a boost and

00:08:34--> 00:08:43

in terms of your health, it will improve drastically. So we have to understand the secret when it comes to

00:08:44--> 00:08:57

to the heart as well. If someone neglects his heart, so much they keep listening to music, they fall in sin, adultery, lying backbiting, dealing with Riba interest

00:08:59--> 00:09:06

and other other bad habits, other sins, you know what happens the heart has been, you know destroyed. So, in order to

00:09:08--> 00:09:42

bring it back to its state, you have to suffer, you have to suffer you have to strive, you have to keep reciting or you have to keep remembering a lot penalty Allah you will not find your heart for quite some time. But you need to proceed you need to be persistent, you have to keep going. And then your heart life will start to grow again and your heart from the zero level it will start to grow again but this needs time, consistency and persistence you have to keep carrying on. And this is something we have to understand about the heart. You know if you

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

the heart responds to the way you behave and the way you think.

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

So, a person who lies so much so that lying becomes his own habit. Such a person cannot tell the truth Believe me, even if there is no one

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

Lie such a person cannot tell the truth and then another beautiful secret that has to do with the heart as well as a person gets so much used to lying, lying lying, what will happen lying will become his second nature, if not first nature. So, what happens, this person will not be able to see things as they really are, you know, because he will become so much immersed in lying, lying will become so automatic in his thinking and in his process and his intellectual process intellectual faculty, so, that he will start to lie to himself, without even realizing that he is lying. So, what will happen, the punishment will be of the same kind, what will happen at this person will not be

00:10:46--> 00:11:00

able to tell or not to see the reality of things, his own vision of things will be blemished, his own comprehension of things will be tarnished, and will become deviant. That's the punishment of kind.

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

So, this is one of the secrets of how that we have to understand and this is why, there's also something that clarifies this meta, you know, speaking about the people of God or the people of polytheism.

00:11:12--> 00:11:25

When we know the code has been created for towhead, to recognize the oneness of Allah, the unity of Allah subhanaw taala. This is how the heart has been designed for that. But because of abusing the heart for quite some time.

00:11:26--> 00:11:35

You know, it's been so badly affected, that if you give it something healthy, it doesn't feel good about it.

00:11:36--> 00:12:01

It doesn't swallow it, it will resist it. So the people of polytheism when you present to hate when you present the oneness of Allah Subhanallah to them, they don't feel comfortable about it, the hearts feel aversion to this to hate. And this exactly. This was exactly the response of the people of Christ. When the prophet SAW Selim told them to worship a lot of penalty, let alone single him out in worship. They said agile and early hasta la Hanwha hidden in Nadella

00:12:02--> 00:12:27

said Did he make all these gods one does he want us to leave all these gods and just worship on? Imagine but human beings are designed in the first place the physical or the natural disposition, disposition, the very nature of human beings is that they only wish upon God they've been designed that way, but because of abusing the hearts for all that time, the hearts have been mutilated.

00:12:29--> 00:13:04

So this is why it's a very difficult job to bring them back to the original nature, the natural disposition of human beings. The heart is the same as well. If you are used to bad things, your heart will not be comfortable with acts of worship, actually, your heart will feel you know, being suffocated and being you know, just sometimes you feel your heart is dying. Why when you recycle, and some people say, you know, my heart, I cannot really read anymore, I cannot recite anymore because my heart, you know, feels contracted and cannot put up with that feeling when they were so caught on.

00:13:06--> 00:13:38

But Allah subhanaw taala says, indeed with the remembrance of Allah the hearts feel at rest, the heart Hartsfield tranquil, why is this because they have abused the hearts. So you need to treat your heart now from the outcomes of this sense until it gets back. You need rehabilitation, this is exactly what we need. That's the word. You need to read. You need rehabilitation. You need to get your heart back to its original state, and only then your heart will recognize the truth and this is what Allah says in the Quran where Allah

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

Allah, Allah Deena

00:13:42--> 00:14:23

law says and if Allah as mentioned alone, and his oneness in the Quran without any partners, the hearts of the disbelievers will feel disgust at that. Imagine, but originally, they were created to recognize the hate but because they abused the hearts. Now the hearts need rehabilitation in order to get back to their original state. So then they can feel the tranquility and the peace of their head and the oneness of Allah and this is our answer to those who asked the question if you don't feel comfortable with reciting the Quran, with prayer, with acts of worship, you need this Be patient during this time of rehabilitation. And once you are done with it, you will see how happy

00:14:24--> 00:14:38

the righteous life is and how happy the hearts of the righteous people are. inshallah, in future episodes we will come to uncover more of the secrets about the heart. Until then. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
