The prophet s.a.w. says behold in the body is a piece of flesh which if good and pure the whole body will be good and pure and if dirty and diseased the whole body will be dirty and diseased.
It is the hidden sins in the heart for eg jealousy, pride that are diseases that stem from syaitan. It is these diseases that are the original sins of syaitan. When Adam a s. was raised in status syaitan asked “Why him? Why not me?” He disobeyed his Creator. He went out of his way to lead Adam astray.
Therefore avoid the wrongful path taken by syaitan by becoming conscious of the condition of our heart and be pleased for the goodness that comes others way.
We must think of others in the best way. Whatever you do may it be for Allah, to impress Allah and not ourselves so that Allah grants us a high level of interaction and connection with Him
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah hawala Allah he was having mine, my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam.
The Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah, we're in the field Jessa de Lama Baba Yaga Salah, Holla Holla Jessa Dooku either facade that facade and just a docu allow, he'll tell boo. Behold, in the body there is a piece of flesh. If it is good and pure, the whole body will be good and pure.
And if it is dirty and filthy, or filled with disease, the whole body will be dirty, filthy and filled with disease.
My brothers and sisters, we work very hard to improve our Salah. We work very hard to improve the tilava of the poor. And we should be working, we work very hard to give hours aka to earn and to donate in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala we work very hard to try and improve our dress, which is very important. We work extremely hard to try and prevent ourselves from adultery from that which will displease Allah from that which is intoxicating, and so many other outward sins. But there is something that sometimes we take for granted. And those are the internal sins, the sins of the heart. The sins of the heart primarily include, when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, it
is the hidden sin that is within a person that no one can notice, and no one can see. But there are sins that are committed against one another that happened to be within the heart, primarily, that of jealousy, that have pride, that have the feeling that one is greater than everyone else, or than someone else. These are diseases that stem from shavon. If you see the original sin committed by shavon, it was that of jealousy, pride, and haughtiness, when Adam alayhis salaam was raised in status, he asked the question, Why him, why not me. Thereafter, he denied the virtue that Allah blessed Adam alayhis, Salam with and he started working against him due to the jealousy. Number one,
he disobeyed Allah command. Number two, he began to
make it his business to ensure the downfall of Adam alayhis salam. And this was the job he occupied himself with so much so that after that he did not obey Allah in anything, may Allah protect us. So a very small, interesting factor, myself, as well as all of us. We need to make sure that we become more conscious of the condition of our hearts, we should love others. We should love what Allah has given them, we should we can ask Allah to bless us as well. But never by taking what Allah gave them away. We should also have something known as personal burn, which people are lacking today. Our Lama used to speak about having a good feeling when you see something happening. When you see someone for
example, walking, you should think good of that person when they have said something. And they are 10 ways of interpreting what they have said, you and I need to interpret it in the best possible way and his or her hisab will be with Allah. If they were trying to cheat you or cheat anyone else. It's between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala. So to have a good feeling in the heart will purify the heart. This is why the Hadith says that piece of flesh, if it is good and pure, the entire body will be good and pure. You will enjoy your Salah you will enjoy giving what you have given in charity, I am not giving it for everyone to look at me and say what a rich person how much he has given and so
on. If they say it on their own without me having tried to impress them. That is something that's unavoidable sometimes. But if I was trying to impress them, then I've lost it I need to impress Allah. May Allah make it easy for all of us. May Allah make it easy for us to purify the heart to instill loving the oma. Today there are so many challenges we are facing. We need to close 1000 different loopholes. At least this is one important one that we can work on so that Allah can grant us therapy and goodness so that when we speak when we interact with people or to
magically this high level of interaction with Allah and connection with Allah can be felt just by talking. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness and protect us from the ills of the dunya For indeed there are so many and there are plenty for our children our grandchildren May Allah keep them steadfast on the dean and the generations to come up Oulu Kohli hada sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah He will become de subhanak Olam will become the Ganesha La Ilaha Illa and Mr. Furukawa to boil it
