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. We seek the protection of Allah from the evils ourselves and the evils of our actions, whomsoever Allah guides known, can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide, I bear witness that one has the right to be worshipped, but Allah alone without any partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant, and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi. Wa, early he was in.
Today, we have a new secret about the heart. And we will try to travel a bit. In terms of time we'll have we'll need to travel a bit to the ancient times, a few 100 years back, we tried to see some examples of people who nurtured the hearts, who took good care of the hearts. And we want to see what kind of people they were. And what was what are the symptoms? What are the
signs of a good heart, and what are the fruits of a person having a healthy heart just before that, because we spoke previously about diseases of the heart. And we said that if a person's heart is so ill, it does not go with what is good. So when you try to act of worship, your heart doesn't feel good, it doesn't feel comfortable. If you have neglected your heart for quite some time, then you need a rehabilitation, transitional stage. Then after that, you once your heart gets back to normal, then it will start to enjoy and feel the beauty and the sweetness of a man while you do acts of worship or righteous deeds.
Unfortunately, some people spend their lives living in darkness. And the hearts get used to things that are bad and evil, although these things are very harmful to the hearts, but as we said many times previously, that these two diseases of the heart, then the most serious diseases of the heart, the sins and the misconceptions, they make the heart numb. So the heart doesn't feel that pain. But unfortunately, what happens, once the person is about to leave this world, all the pain will come back at once. And from that moment on, the pain will only intensify eternally, forever. That's the problem. This is why it's very serious, to take good care of our hearts, to be able to understand
the seriousness of the issue of the hearts. And as we take care of our bodies, as many people take good care of their cars. Some people take good care of their houses. Some people take good care of their laptop or even their mobile phone.
But they neglect the hearts The heart is so much more important than anything else. Why do we take good care of our physical objects, material objects, and when it comes to our hearts, we're so negligent
whereas the heart actually should be the core of the matter should be the focal point of our attention.
And unfortunately, the people who are in this illness in this disease
you know, the only this numb feeling that keeps them going. This is why you find them they can't sit even for a couple of days or a few days and sit and think about the reality of this world. They can't do that. They will feel the emptiness and they will be sucked in this black hole of empty.
You know, I can say empty life that has no purpose because the heart really feels lost. So what do these people do they keep themselves busy, either with women drinking alcohol, drugs, you know any type of sport, any type of activity, their friends, the circle of friends, traveling tourism, all that
are a means to run away.
From facing the reality of the emptiness, the heartfield, people are trying to preoccupy themselves, keep the heart busy with other things. So it remains numb and it doesn't sting them, it doesn't hurt them, and help them wake up to realize that what they are doing is wrong. So when you heart
gives you some hard time trying to find answers, don't run away from it. Don't try to keep it busy. Don't try to silence the voice of your heart. With any of these things, listen to your heart. Because your heart doesn't lie. It always tells you tell you the truth about yourself and about the reality of this world. Because you have doesn't feel comfortable unless, unless it's healthy. And it comes to realize the purpose of the creation of everything and the purpose behind this world. Now speaking about people from the past, let's start with the profits are low. And it was I just wanted to reflect on the kind of challenges the kind of opposition the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wasallam
had to face and he had to deal with, he had to put up with so much pain, so much opposition, so much agony, on the part of the people who opposed him, the people of Rajesh and other people as well. They treated him very, you know, extremely, in an extreme bad way. But still, from inside, he was very comfortable and confident because his heart was attached to Allah, and all other things, you know, what have minimal impact on his heart, he was only concerned for the people. It wasn't concerned about the pain and the agony he was going through. It was mainly concerned about the people themselves, and how
negative the impact of their actions is going to be on them and on their own hearts. To the extent that let's take the hedge or the migration of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as an example to show you how a tranquil heart feels confident because it's always attached to Allah. When the prophet SAW loads of them into the cave, along with Abu Bakar, the people of Mecca was searching around, actually they reached the doorstep of the cave, right at the entrance of the cave they stood. And there was searching for the profits of Lowe's and and Abu Bakar was taken by fear. He said, O Messenger of Allah, you know, we're finished, we're done. That's it, we will be killed. If any one
of these people looks at his own feet, they will be able to see us. This is how close they got. What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say to him with all confidence? All calmness and tranquility he said, What do you think about two individuals? Allah is the third of them, allies with them. What do you think about that? Could you imagine how tranquil how confident the prophets, Allah is and was at that very difficult time. He was very confident. He didn't have any fear at all. Why? Because when the heart is so healthy, that is so much attached to Allah Subhana. Allah, you know, and you are you become aware of how powerful Allah is how mighty Allah is. And you know, if Allah wants to save you,
no one can touch you. No one can get you. No one can harm you, even in the slightest.
So this is a good sign, a very powerful sign of healthy heart. So in the heart is healthy, it's attached entrepreneurs aware of the attributes of Allah.
You're so confident because everything in this world happens by the permission of Allah. If Allah says to it, no, it doesn't happen. Simply.
So be with Allah and forget about everything else. You have nothing to worry about. And if Allah wrote something for you, it will happen. It will happen no matter what you do, it will happen. So be content. You know, calm down and take it easy.
Everything's in the hands of Allah, put your trust in Allah, then everything happens to you. Even if it seems to be bad, it will be good because Allah says, I will be to my servant, as he thinks of me. So no anything, whatever thought you had about Allah, Allah will respond in kind to you. Put your trust in Allah.
Prove to Allah spirit Allah that you trust Him, and that he is trustworthy. And he will give you everything good. You don't have to worry about anything else.
And also speaking about the Muslims Generally, the way the prophets are lower Islam used to stand up in prayer at night. Imagine the presence of lamb had all his sins forgiven, but still, at least for four or five hours a night. Every night the prophets of lows and and would stand in prayer recited, reciting Quran, standing in humbleness before the last panel to Allah proving his dedication and his devotion to Allah.
That was actually the most or the sweetest time the prophets of Allah wa sallam had, and he stood before his creator, speaking to Allah conversing with a lot of parents of Hamlet praising Allah, thanking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and calling upon him asking from him.
This is so beautiful. This is one when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one day he was praying at night. And
actually, he got up front, he got up in the middle of the night, he wanted to pray. So I just held him. He said to her, I shall
leave me. Let me wash my Lord.
The process I didn't want to, he didn't want the the beauty of this well, he said, leave me. Let me worship My Lord. This is my life. This is my life when I stand before Allah subhana wa Tada. And I pray before him, and I humble myself before him, recite his own words. I converse with a lot privately.
This is my life. Leave me,
leave me, let me worship My Lord.
And this is how we should be.
And this is the highest level of sweetness of a man. Hopefully, we'll be able to get that. And one of the
early Muslims later at a time later that after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, his name was able to lay man and dharani He says, had it not been for the night prayer, you know, because why the night prayer because the night prayer no one knows about you.
You're by yourself. And you're standing before a line, you feel the greatness of allowing, you know, when the world is quiet, you don't have any worries, any things to wear any, you know, anything that distorts your thinking, anything that attracts your attention, you only standing before a las panatela fully focused, you're praying before Allah, you're thanking Allah praising him, and you're worshiping Him, and you're showing humbleness before him.
These are the sweetest moments for a heart that is healthy.
This is really paradise on earth. So obviously many dharani said had not been had it not been for the night prayer. I would have no reason to stay in this world, I would have no interest
and no hope and no will to stay in this world.
He said the only sweet thing in this world is to stand up in prayer at night before our last panel. This is a tranquil heart. This is a peaceful heart. This is a healthy heart filled with the remembrance of Allah filled with the names and the attributes of a las panatela being aware of them, thoughtful of them all the time. So he realized, once you realize the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala you realize how insignificant This world is how worthless This world is. It means nothing, because you realize the greatness of of Las panatela. And you realize that this world really means nothing and carries no weight whatsoever the real life is in the hereafter.
So these are examples of hearts that have been nurtured that have been cultivated very well.
also speaking about the prophets, allies and his companions. Imagine as madam Northen One day, he stood up to pray and he wanted to pray One day, he wanted to pray one day they've lost track I have witnessed the final one.
He stood in prayer then he started with sort of ibaka
he started praying and start reciting saltimbocca.
And do you know what happened to him he was taken totally absorbed by the Quran, he forgot the whole world around him.
And he remained in concentration, until he recited the whole and all of that, from cover to cover. In that one. He finished it.
He was totally taken by that was totally absorbed in visitation because his heart was a life. His heart was learning from the heart and feeling being purified more with growing and nurtured with the Quran.
So this is how we should try to be these people were so happy from inside, no matter what happened, you know, in the outer world, meant very little to them. As long as your heart is attached to a las panatela they don't worry about things about anything. This is why one of the signs of a good heart and a healthy heart. That it's always waiting for the prayer to come because it wants to pray it finds its peace and happiness in the prayer. inshallah in future episodes, we'll try to deal with more beautiful secrets about the heart will try to uncover important secrets about the heart. Hopefully our hearts
We'll go and we'll improve and we'll be nurtured more and more. Until then. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
