for attending, and taking some time out.
Take a break, take timeout, we need to take time out from our busy schedule which you know busy lifestyle
to really contemplate and maybe think about and focus on our life. Life is so fast, so busy. Some of the things I want to talk about will be regarding
this particular aspect.
Our lives are so busy.
From morning to night, week to week, month year is just passing by us. We are in 2016 Sometimes I think what is it 17 Is its exterior 15 Or what is it? We're not confused about the days of the dates anymore. We're more confused by the years. It's it's like passing by and it's actually one of the signs of paella. Yet the aura was among the messengers of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that before the time final hour comes time will fly past by you.
And you know, people are seven 810 years people in their 20s are becoming the 30s, early 40s, late 30s. Now 40s 50s People don't even get, you know, normally if you get the average
amount of time that number gets average 6065 people pass away Now, normally mid 60. If you're 1420 years to live, do we give all our effort and life and time for one to my for the next 15 years? Or do we think about the eternal life of millions and billions and trillions and beyond and eternal life? It's really you know, when people have problems, I tell them
oh, this problem and that problem? Well, if you take the means but you don't want further states like you how are you going to do another 20 years? Why are you so worried about the next 1520 years of your life? You already 5014 or 20 years. And that's if you if you receive if we receive the average lifespan. Now it's becoming so common. Every other day we hear someone a single eight year in a young age, just in the last month in my city of Leicester
deaths are in a brother who was 18 years old. Nothing wrong. This is just within the last three weeks nothing wrong with him. Never been to what may have been to the doctor but very rarely been to the doctor not even his father's has not even for a headache. Just completely normal healthy brother 18 years old, came back from college just collapsed to the troops into the hospital. And he passed away a
few days ago. There's a 10 year old girl, nothing wrong. Nothing whatsoever. He just said came back from school, feeling a bit you know, like hot and you know Dizzy stone. There was a brother 36 married with a couple of children.
Nothing passed away. There was another brother in his 40s who passed away this is just in the last two three weeks 3040 1082 So we really need to take time out and focus on what we are really doing your shoulder and this is this opportunities by this
seemed really important
for us to
know my session
the pickup and pickup and not liquor
This is actually very important and I want to talk about some really important things. I'm sure you may have heard of some of the things maybe some things you may have not heard of. But this is a very important discussion. If you look at patients with AIDS that's where we actually show
the remembrance of Allah
zikr and contemplation known as thicker, thick, thicker, thicker, thicker, it's not really a thicker it's actually bigger in Arabic, they could and thick otter * orthophoto
the meaning verse of the Quran
that this particular discussion is based on is the verse translation of which we have before us Surah Al Quran vs 191 91
In the Philippines, some are working with other they was teamed up with Lady one and a half year to live within
Lavina Yasunaga they are much more polluted either juubi waiter for Coronavirus, Hulu Plus an hour it would have been
amazing plus the messages on the water heater it will send them would recite this person comes in the middle of the night, you would point in the heavens to describe you will recite this when you will wake up Yama, data salah.
Surely in the creation of the heavens and earth,
in the creation of the heavens and the earth, in the creation of everything, the whole cosmos system in the creation of Mars and Jupiter.
And what else to tow and all the different planets and the stars and the galaxies, the creation of the earth and the heavens everything. If we ponder and think in the field is similar to what the lovely lady when the huh. And in the alternation of the night and the day the day comes, and the night appears, the night tennis and the day comes back. This is something to think about. But we you know, this is the issue that we are, our lives are so fast, the things happening before us that we don't think or reflect by just looking at this, the way the sun is descending, the day is coming to an end. And night is coming, a rising Venus leveling because we are so accustomed to some of these
things. This is why we don't really take notice if something happens, even if it's the greatest miracle if it happens every day in front of us will no longer remains important for us.
So what's the left? Will anyone know how Allah says the God in their signs for the people of wisdom?
You know, there are lots of verses I'm going to talk about today in the Allah when he enters Allah subhanaw taala he says to me, yeah, can you call me later for karoun and
so many places in the Quran, Allah talks about the people of the people who conduct science, people who ponder science for people of African people of intelligence and verb here there's a pool of love, which means the people have actual intelligence or wisdom This is why Islam places a lot of importance and emphasis and significance on using something that Allah has given us in here
because we don't use this What's this any of the account the intellect the reason intelligence the brain? Because we don't use it. What happens is lots of people talking about depression, mental health one of the reasons is because we don't use this use it in a positive way.
This aka Allah has given us Islam gives us guidelines on utilizing the brain we don't use it. Like anything you have a car and it just sits there for five years. You've never driven it. You don't ever put the engine on it gets rusty engine things problem. After is the same if we don't use our brain brain gets rusty. brain gets rusty
Do we become less intelligent? The ways to become intelligent is to use the brain.
The Honda Motor, depressed Honda, take time, you know, reflection, we're going to talk about this reflection. Sometimes when you drive in the car, just, you've parked outside your house. Just look, look at the birth. Mother, mother. Amazing. Just last week, I saw the way Subhanallah you know, a group of you know, the way they were swerving and flying in the industry, in the air, like literally about 300 birds together this way. And in a way this will just live 10 minutes thinking about so many different things. The Quran says that you think that they are just swerving and swaying.
These birds they are making a speech of Allah, what Boyle's law
says soft fog is a pool of these birds they make the speech of Allah is soft in rows. That's what they're doing in the morning with the wake of nearly every word in the world. Whether you are in England or America or Africa or Medina or Japan or China or perspective, or South Africa of Malawi or Sudan or Somalia or wherever you are, there is no bird that is to take gotcha
there's no disbelieving bird, every bird makes the sphere of law and not just burn. The Quran says what you mentioned in your sub.
There's nothing that except that it makes a speech of Allah we think that the air the window is very windy laughs The speed is being made. You know, when you go to the ocean, sometimes go to the beach and ocean not just for take your family. But we just go like Are we our life is so you know, it's just so
sad what I'm looking for.
There's no deeper meaning to it. So artificial.
It's all artificial.
The waves that are moving, they're making a smear of Allah sit down, just reflect
for millions of years that the waves and the end of the ocean recede. You call the
waves, the way it's done
not surfing, but just the end of the ocean to come to the group landing on the shore. But is there another word for that when the waves are hitting?
Whatever, okay, you understand what I'm saying? That's also making facility Hakala. So I was saying the time it should have been I don't see that so many places in the Quran is the commutator for karoun Omiya Lu, signs for the people properly signed for the people who think in this verse, Allah says,
This is the first the basis in the alteration of the day and night there are signs for the people of wisdom. live above the people who are loop. The Beat means an intelligent person, the person of intelligence sign for him, the one who is not intelligent, the one who lives in a small artificial life manager. For him. It's only my car, my job, my factory, my husband, my wife, my brother, my sister, my son here, there, okay, job, tax office, this office, post office bank, okay? You just live for that person. There's no science, he doesn't live in a spiritual way. Everything is just physical, artificial. 60 years you just go first class live nothing. There's no deeper meaning to
life. Allah says the above this there are signs for the people of above. And then we ask Allah, Allah tells us, who are the people of unblock straightaway. Next verse, the person of intelligence, the person of wisdom, the person of brain, the person of spirituality is not the one who thinks about this worldly asks.
It's the one and Larina you have gone above and beyond and local rules and mileage and beat him with Karuna for
those who remember I'm not standing and sitting and lying in the silence it meaning in every state and ponder on the creation of the heavens and the earth and then they say, bla bla bla
bla bla, oh, Lord, our Lord, You have not created all of this in vain proclaim your purity.
Okay, now governor, save us from the punishment.
So this is the meeting. First, there's two things mentioned. Allah says Who are the people? Who are the people of wisdom? Who are the people of intelligence, those who are Lavina? Yes, Cohoon Allah.
Those who remember what they are good or whatever I do to him. Were to collude. And then 100 They do vicar, and then do you figure you'll figure? Sometimes people misunderstand the words because lots of people are from the subconscious
In the background and they don't want to do Punjabi, whatever, that's what they miss misunderstand there because it's a similar language and sometimes same words you can use in Arabic as a completed for meaning.
Like other. Odo means something else in Arabic other means something else.
This is why lots of people make mistakes from the subconscious because the auditor language is similar. The words are used in Arabic has a different meaning. The words fit them all do for those who speak or do means what?
concern. In Arabic a fickle doesn't mean that if that's why I put slash the good
figure in Arabic or another word, the * good means reflecting, meditating, pondering thinking. That's what the football Alinea hula waiter for karoun they do two things. This is our responsibility every one of us our responsibility is to do vicar and the football record and figure this is what we have to do.
This means, actually, this takeoff and figure we can express this in different ways.
Some of them are they've expressed it in this way that look the vicar is of two types, they can listen and because Calbee record listening is because of the tongue. Vikram Valby is record of the heart and the mind. The first call means you can say victim and victim or you can say this is Dicker Lisa de verbal record. And the other one is they can call the beating heart and mind you the
first one is called vicar. The second one is called fifth or you can say the first one is listening. And the second one is also called is vicar of the heart.
first one to pick up the tongue and the contemplation The fourth one is vicar of the heart and the mind. Both are necessary now look you know what?
We don't sometimes, you know all these verses in the Quran that talk about thicker you know what normally we just we didn't see we were brought up with things we just hear something and that's it.
We're here Mexico Hola. Suddenly important is what comes down like make Nicaragua. Okay, let me take
that Ada panels Pamela?
you don't, if you look at all these verses in the Quran,
the literal meaning of what is the literal meaning of vicar.
They can mix to remember
if I say to your brother, remember your brother.
If I say to you, brother, I seem to remember your brother.
Your mother, your brother?
What will you be doing? My brother my brother, my brother, my brother, my brother, my brother, my brother, my brother will remember okay, I remember now.
He literally the translation of the verses of the Quran. Yeah, your Lolita armory formula for you believe remember Allah. Remember with the brave
and Lavinia who know for those who think about Allah, remember Allah Vikram is to remember
that's one meaning.
Also, another translation could be mentioned in Arabic.
Or the Quran mentioned your brother. Now, what does that mean? I said, you mentioned your brother, what would you say to me? You say listening, watching as you mentioned your brother, okay?
So you'd say you want me to mention my brother? I think I mentioned your brother, um, are
all the verses of the Quran can be interpreted in both ways.
All the verses
and most of the words in verses are just going to remember Allah mentioned Allah and remember
someone can say I'll take the mention, someone can say I can take the meeting. Remember?
However there are few few I don't know how many but few but one Hadith which is coming, which has in mind that actually specifically and this is more in the Hadith that actually specifically talk about mentioned with the tongue, like a companion came to the messenger solo Baba and he sent him and he asked him for some advice.
The messenger sort of already was said and said, Hey, you're gonna listen and you got burden of thinking can build up your tongue should be moist. With the mention of Allah. You can't say your tongues too moist. Remember the best members of the mind not that cold.
and there are other
say subhanallah Cambodian animals and my wife saying it verbally
so both are important
what's happened is that we find some people who actually give just the importance to just the mind and the foot like you don't want it's all about thinking like I don't need to say guide I don't
know the real purpose is actually have a connection and think about them I think even survives for that optimist so that the degree established pray to remember me some people actually said, Well Salah is to remember Allah so that means what?
I don't know. I'm just going to remember Allah. I've attained my objective so I don't need to
survive also, it's a means but you can't leave the means. So that's one extreme that some people that I just remember I just think in your mind and there are others but many of us we are just brought up with this understanding that dhikr is only sila in Nevada in the last panel but stuff goes on stuff like that. Allah Allah Allah Allah that's it with no food, no mind no focus. You don't know You know, your half eating food or talking to somebody. Hola. Hola. Hola. Yeah, brother Allah. Yeah, yeah, what's going on? Again, someone's talking to you about
there's no like, there's no remember it's only with the tongue. And that's another extreme
in this iron versus the people of Africa or who those who make those who remember not yet guna were difficult. Now, because he mentioned these two things separately,
it will be Allah mentioned remember, and tougher call, which is of the mind separately? This gives us this understanding that the first remember a remembrance was referring to
the question what do we need to know that your understanding? Allah says Allah Dini, your people have intelligence? The Quran is talking to people of intelligence, we need to become people of intelligence brothers, and Latina yet Fudan Allah, those who remember I said there are two meanings of remembering Allah with the mind and with the tongue. But in this verse when Allah is saying, those who remember Allah and then they contemplate with the mind and the heart so the first remember, Rex is referring to the tongue because you can't say to them those remember with a minor know who, those who ponder, so both are mentioned.
And this is why there's two types of vicar, the court resigning, because recall me like I already explained. As Allah mentioned, remembrance with the tongue are mentioned with the tongue first, and then the remembrance with the mind on the heart of a good second, because the first is the means to the second
this is what look remembrance was a tongue, vicar. glissading is a means to contemplation, flicker, or remembrance of the heart. Look at Aldi. Together they complete the light of faith. If you want to complete the light of EMA, the new Imam the light of faith,
these two things are necessary. Victor and Victor are recovery Sunni and Victor and B both are necessary. In other words, the basic level is to remember verbally This is the first level of basic level, ultimate level is to keep one's heart focused on a lot of times.
Allah mentioned first the verbal mentioned because that is a means. That is what a stairway it's a means it's a ladder, it's a stepping stone. It's a very artsy Wartsila to the ultimate vicar which is always thinking and this is actually very important one of my teachers sharpens the W with money has come along.
He mentioned this a lot and last few years he's mentioned this more or less every talk of it, he mentioned this.
He talks about this a lot.
He focuses on this a lot he says we need to direct the flow of our foods towards Allah.
This is what he talks about. We need to direct our
food, the flow of our thoughts towards Allah subhanaw taala
you know, this brain and apple of the human being of us given each always thinks about something
unless someone's insane, someone's much noon and not that as long as we are much, much noon
24 hours we're not going to be sleeping. We're sleeping maybe dreaming. But when we are awake.
There is no human being that passes a time where he's not thinking about something
If you're talking to somebody, then you're thinking about what you're talking about right now listening to me. So you hopefully inshallah you are thinking about what I am saying. I am thinking about what I am saying. But if we're not talking, you're driving a car.
Some people have accidents because they were thinking about something.
We're driving the walking we're talking with before we sleep, some people, it takes them an hour just
takes me a long time, just 40 minutes, 45 minutes, I actually asked the doctors as well, why they're starting to they give good reasons. But some, it just takes a long time. You put your put your head, place it on the pinup
jungle of thoughts.
Every moment we are thinking about something
majority 80 90% of our thoughts, it's not 95 thoughts, he says, Are
we thinking about our family, we're thinking about our life. We're thinking about car, we're thinking about exhausts without thinking about the MOT. We're thinking about the next car without thinking about we buy the car.com we're thinking about Google. So thinking about eBay, we're thinking about post documents, we're thinking about the bank, what about that account, this job, this Korea tax credit office tomorrow, I need to go and I need to contact the you know the internal revenue of our tax about this or this brother sent this or this sister or this marriage or this it's all about the dunya
he says that this only comes with machine with training and we need to we thinking about 65 Like I said in the beginning years of life, we need to change the direction of flow of our thoughts towards Allah towards offer towards the towards standing before but I'm going to come to that. Think of our look you know when you're driving Chava imagine one day we'll be in Jana will be think positively. We shall all be in Jana will be standing before Allah. Allah says in the Quran that you know, with the Hadith says will be there'll be the beautiful vision of allah how is that vision take place? Imagine seeing Allah subhanaw taala inshallah being gender with my family sitting or think about
Hisar on WD you know, where all the everybody will go to all the prophets that come to Adam will come to Musa will come to ERISA and they will all say, you know, Neff CFC, like to hasten the day of reckoning and they will all go to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will say Allah and Allah Yes, yes I have for it. And then he will ask Allah imagine I'd be there inshallah we'll be hopefully inshallah I will not be Johanna thinking about you know, more thought about thinking about the power of power power. I'm coming to that about his heart about how I am one of my deeds before when Steve when we put the head on the pillow, we're thinking about all the jungle of goods. What
did I do today? I woke up today. Did I use my tongue properly? Did I swear somebody in a slander restaurant and my wife by this shot on my wife a loaded question me? Did I scream? Did I get angry on my children for no reason? Did I do this? Did I drive a car in a haram way was I you know, like being aggressive on the motorway without being aggressive to the person in the bank? Did I pretty much sell our property one was able to show and Hulu in prayer me for hassle but this is all
this is because someone just wanted to take it off Allah Allah Allah Allah industry. Now you know what's on the road and like, I click whatever you want happen. That's not the cup. That's not liquor. Liquor is a comprehensive way of thinking and being connected to God Almighty. That's the corollary.
But we come into that, there's just some verses that I'm going to cook you mentioned these verses and we'll get to that. So dig up the tongue. So I mentioned two types of
become the tongue. We first that's a means to the rigor of the heart. Because colorway is a means to the bigger design record a solid record misogyny because the tongue is a means to become valid. We record the art record Calvi is also called what? Okay?
The good of Africa. Okay.
So, the tongue was taken off the tongue,
any utterance of glorification does beef that's also
this be what's this?
This is by the way, not much. Okay. I don't have a problem with it, you know, but I don't keep one so let's just do it here. Just very good. What's this?
It's another severe brothers. You don't call this the speed because to be so hard on law
this is called a Musab who is called was that Kira if you want to give it a name?
It's not the see the species that I
Should I tell them of Subhan Allah that's this week. This is the killer
reminder. Reminder what Shepherd said that what is a mess? Our brother and this is not specific to anybody but somebody who had some issues with this. So the sheriff had this in his hand he keep one in his hand. So he said he said What's this? So the shirts that this is in a hammock, he said Aisha, was this in your hand was
just a reminder
we said the messages Hello love Are you still in use one
of the common question to the messengers of Allah autism use one that you use in this short segment? Did he ever forget that he needed to be reminded?
Did he ever forget that he needed a reminder he was 24 hours concentrates kilobytes will be people like us. We need to you need to remember if not this thinking this. Okay. Nobody's saying this is so nerve specifically. Even though there's books written on this is Carlos Imam are good at how you're looking at the whole book. Subhan God, like all the evidences that you noticed, how was used pedals, etc. So there's the whole discussion, you know, because some people could have been I mean, I've actually don't use one, but it's some of it. But nobody's saying this. It used to be How could you do it's number one, number
two, don't just leave them. Okay.
it's not that this is specifically so nice. Anything I log in? Does anyone
ever become 100? In here?
No problem. Okay, so anyway, that's the beef nice, glorify normal things to have a law that's a form of victory.
Because numerous athletes that talk about you know, glorifying so Gohan you know, what some can means purifying about glorifying others. So hard actually. means that we are attributing to Allah, every form of affection and purity and rejecting or removing from Allah any attribute of
imperfection. Subhana Allah is your absolutely pure, you just study Akita to understand this, Allah is absolutely pure in Allah, please.
That's why you know,
many things, the Sunnah, that
when we send you should say Allahu Akbar.
When we descend, it should say what the reason is, when we ascend, we say Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater than any ascension. No matter how far, far and above we go, Allah is great. Not Allah is physically above that, but we're on the fourth floor. So those fifth floor would have been enough. Allah is above in writing status about that, any locked in position we can be.
And when we descending Subhan Allah because descending is like lowly things, Allah is pure from anything lowly.
This is we need to, you know, every vehicle we need to keep the mind will be reading why we're reading the forecast to be there, that's coming as well. So they can any other utterance of glorification Subhanallah or praise and Hamdulillah, praising Allah.
Or exalting Allah, the convenience of Allah
suggesting Xyla and Allah, Allah Subhana Allah in Hungary, there is still a lot of struggle and towards the end, even in the second session that I have a talk about, you know, the prophetic, so you're still hot. So, all of this is the kind of the tongue
all of this has become a topic. Okay? Numerous verses in the Quran. Now, these verses, I've got different operands some verses, I'm just going to quickly go through them because you know, you can read
this, there's literally the Quran is filled with verses emphasis emphasizing vicar, and
giving us the importance of meal record and the benefits of the COVID so many verses, literally 3040 verses, so many verses in the Quran
just a few years.
Now, this these verses, like I said, In the beginning,
I have used them here in the context in the context of vicar of the tongue, because there are specific verses for the speaker of the heart.
But actually, these verses can also be
used for the Kannada remember, like I said, a good example of this brother here. The word vicar means to remember or it could mean to me
Okay, so let's look at the first verse. But only Rajgopal bush 41 Attack followed. Remember Me I will remember you, or you can say mentioned me that I mentioned you
this verse, Allah says, Remember me, you could remember it's a fight like I told his brothers. Remember your brother? He didn't say my brother, my brother
or the transmission couldn't be mentioned me. Then you say okay, my brother verbally
said what I'm saying.
So, next verse, we're just going to quickly go through these verses.
Surely Muslim men and Muslim women this is a famous dress in the Muslim ina women's movement in one minute what Valentina was finding was Saudi Athena was a part of saw videos on rotten flesh Fredo Akasha was Saudi people who would have sent the video to Saudi the heart was so ilina or
what have Lena Fujian would happen but with Kadena Well, the funeral would give up on the low
that's fine. I'm not greedy yourself what it's about, you know, give all the qualities of Muslim men and women believing men believing women development are women, true for men and women all the way you can read the list.
Those who preserve and protecting private parts men and women, and then at the end, those who remember Allah bit, those men who remember Allah the women remember
the other one and the common thing to think about is first, Allah mentioned remembering and vicar right at the end. reason is because the current helps attain all other qualities.
If you want to fast, think of Allah think about Allah WinFast you want to be demolished in your prayer? Mentioned Allah, think of think of Allah have a connection. If you think about all the time, you're able to pray, you want to give in charity. Think about Allah. It'd be easy to give a charity. You want to preserve your private house. You don't want to commit Zina and fornication of the mind in the house, not look at things which are unhealthy and unlovable and filthy and dirty. Or think about things which are filthy and dirty. Fornication siddur. You want to avoid that. Remember what you think about Allah will stop since all of our cognitive again by remember being connected to
Allah subhanahu which is
another verse, region as we reach out to
men whom no trade for sale makes neglectful of the remembrance of Allah know from establishing salah and things.
This verse is saying that look, we live in the dunya. Allah is not saying abandon the dunya. That's why Islam is not a religion of Rania. The New Year was month monasticism, which some of the Catholics that you have to give up and propose to the world, you can't be married, you can't eat like you can't eat vegetables, you can't eat more cheeses, but for the for them, right? You can't enjoy you can't be married. As long as they know, you live in the world. You have to get married, you have children, you have to Java, your business, but you're focused, and importance over and above all of this should be offered should be the eternal bliss and pleasure, the love of Allah
being connected the minus to be connected fully. Despite doing all of this, this is in return to Him deja vu, where there are people the attributes of the good people.
No trade or sale makes them neglectful of the remembrance of Allah. You're doing business still thinking.
there was one shot from subcontinent he wants to work with they have gathered they ate food and had a gathering of merchandise you know, they don't normally waste the time but this was you know, it was a kind of old shoe for that.
You mentioned in that that
was one of the
the Old City and beauty
and he said that you know all these two hours with the alligator was like a light hearted gathering where they read poetry and things like that.
He said that you know in the last two hours, my heart has not been he just an orphan from Allah for one moment.
Eating food. Heart is connected to the
business trade. You're in your office, you're in your marketplace, you're in New York, wherever your heart is connected to. This is the ultimate level.
The next verse, you will read an animal's gorilla record on cathedra. Who you will believe remember Allah abundantly, no again. How can you trust me this?
Remember Allah abundantly Oh, mention Allah
mentioned so mentioned in the tongue, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Skiba mentioned no problem, but also try to remember it. You see, the picture has to do with the mind, not just the cat everything. Now you know, when it comes to the pocket I mentioned these
necklaces, I'm just going to quickly because time is short, and I need to talk about the other parts of those who believe and their hearts are peaceful with the remembrance of Allah. Alina Herman was playing a political military law, and how difficult many of you must have heard of him because he everybody hears this very remembrance of Allah, this peace of the heart.
It's not only in the vicar with the tongue, peace of the heart. That's why one of the
tools for mental health and depression
is the code is the code of the heart actually a couple of weeks ago and eventually web University and they were saying that the big issue here amongst university students have mental health like major mental health problems. So my whole talk was Islam and mental health.
And I did a whole talk on difficult to cure depression and mental health is vichara the decline of the heart which will suffer
Okay, which we're going to talk about
the next verse as well
wants to realize over dispersion that diamond seek the Grace of Allah and remember Allah abundantly like once you offer Salah and go further, or even this was Jumar Surah confession open up, seek the provision, work, do your job, but remember Allah make vicar of Allah.
Also after committing sins,
okay, I know there's lots of nines here to be note, and I'm not really explaining these verses. But there's lots of important things left. That's why and those who when they happen to commit the shameful act for wrongful or wrong themselves under the law for an efficient hold on for so long, that God Allah when we commit sins or something obscene. Quran says, After that make Toba that also vicar.
Toba is better than Allah will stop polluting the Ruby is still far as weaker. So a good time to make record of Allah and remember him intention and make Toba and Mr. Hall is after a sin is committed.
As I said numerous verses vicar in the Sunnah. There's a hadith here in Sahih al Bukhari, the difference between the one who makes Zika and the one who doesn't make thicker, it's like the difference between the living and the dead, because the dead the mind is not working
the tongue but that is
this is working? No, nothing is moving the brain dead.
Study. When you say tell us when what's the actual definition of death? Is it brain dead? Or is it brain stem death? Or is it life support machine can you remove and not in all of this? Why? Because everything to do with the brain. The brain is dead. If the when the person is dead, they actually define death medically, when the brain is dead. Some say though full brain death, some say brain stem.
So when the brain is dead, you're dead. So the one who doesn't make vicar of Allah, because he's not using the brain is as though he's dead. He's not using the tongue as though he's deaf. So this is a difference. The next thing I'm actually have mentioned this already, this is specifically about Nicaragua. This is so far, there's few others but here so far, I could only very quick put these together there must be a minute I'm sure there must be something you can ask to the other than some others. There must be some some other verses of the Quran and Hadith that talk about wait specifically is dhikr of the tongue. But this is only one here that I found in a very hasty few
minutes. And you're calling an external carotid and medical messages of Operation specifically mentioned Do not let your tongue be moist. Make sure and ensure your tongue is moist with the mention of Allah. Now we're talking about mentioned the tongue. Okay, so this is a specific, clear, heavy
and then you've got another few more heartbeats. There are no people who remember Allah without angels surrounding them mercy covering them, tranquillity descending on them, and Allah mentioning them to those who are with him.
This is like group group thicker. This is also thicker. What we're doing right now is also
mentioning Allah we've mentioned Allah we took him to Allah this nickel
Okay, standing is dica reciting of the Quran is rica which will come, Allah Almighty has angels are seeking the gatherings of remembrance, this is a gathering of remembrance, inshallah you have lost an angel, we need to believe in this this is a sound idea we should have put your faith and belief in it. gatherings of remembrance, when they come they circled.
We can see them that they are inserted in the social because of the photograph somebody
we have to believe this focus mind.
This is a real spiritual way of living where we we firmly believe.
And then the last week when you come upon the meadows of the garden, praising them the message of Allah morning Sam was asked what are the matters of the garden he said circles of remembrance gatherings of remembrance gathering of.
So this could be vicar of the tongue, vicar of the heart, and I've already talked a bit about it, which is called the capacity, which also called faker. It's also called
contemplation, pondering what does that mean? I talked briefly but now it's going to explain this and more.
pondering over this admission we need to do this safely as a third of our lives have to take time out for this one here of a community where I didn't tell the brothers want to make notes but pondering over Allah's attributes of perfection, beauty, power and majesty. This is something constantly we need to do this is part of Lika
Ponte and like I said, the verse is said
to the commutator for karoun Yeah, oh we do? Yeah.
We need to see people have look people have Afghan people have difficult people have intelligence, people have wisdom, people have understanding and food and reflection, meditation.
Ponder over the attributes of perfection.
Almost a lot of photography that in love, but for cure will be added in. Don't count on that we can understand the essence if you study RP that, you know, we teach you how you have acquired from yours. The final conclusion I tell the students is the conclusion is that we can't understand
the conclusion of studying of law for the whole year is that we don't know we can't understand the essence of ALLAH. You have to if you want to understand the reality the Essence of Allah you have to be God yourself. To understand a businessman you have to be a business in the nutrients to understand a doctor you have to be a medic.
Right? And not many economists economist and a medic, you can't understand the essence the narrative Allah that's what God who did. This is why we have been told to ponder and reflect on everything else on the Quadra and the majesty Power of Allah every place and everything before us is a sign of equally shading.
Within color shade, I don't know why everything is a sign that there's only one oh god. It's not the same colors.
Everything around us. I mean that's why we come to places like this just amazing because the three paths wander reflect, everything is a reflection and thought it takes you to Allah.
Despite we not being able to see Allah in this life or this nice eyes,
everything is clear proof. And we need to think ponder over
the perfection. Look, think about Allah's attributes study a pita and learn the attributes of Allah, order of power from
the beauty of Allah Jalla Jamal, Command of Allah subhanaw taala This is such a vast subject. This is all because
the Quran gives us invitation to the pocket so many places the Parana talks about the book so many places
some detail we just we passed by the we don't even think like this verse in the film so
there's another verse interview notice in the middle of the summer where they will maybe when when full kinetic energy keep inviting him or nurse or Mademoiselle alone is somebody we must get out of bother moving up over the pyramid fully Dobbs Otto Surya was having a very veinous to money on Audible. Yeah, I think they call me
bring a call me young glued in the creation of the heavens and the earth alternation of the night of the day. And
ships and boats that carry things which benefit people on the on the sea and in the
Am I sending you the creatures animals Subhan Allah whether it was an amazing way to do Takako bola and go to zoos and spend time and just think and ponder reflect when you look at amazing some creatures out of the way they are creating different creatures just in the ocean some marine here in Barbados, if you go to Barbados and many other places maybe but I mean one involving they go to quite deep in a marina You look so amazing, amazing there's 1000s of creatures of Allah 1000s Each one of them makes you think about Allah. And Allah says the RIA the wing and everything is a sign
Allah says about a failure during an educational holiday but don't you have a look at each other to try to conclude the next 10 minutes
even if a portfolio but don't you look at the camels have been created
here we can't can kind of get come into that time you know, they could only think about camel vessel electric cameras, and this could include any means of transport
look at some cars don't like cars. I wonder cognomen just look here we can look at cannabis. So Allah says let's go back to one take your family and go to a place to act upon this verse. For us is zero for our shovel in the earth on guru Look around you. This is the phone call this is record of the hot
financial guru did anybody give a flavor to either somebody pay for the fair look at the heavens and the sky how it's been raised. You can see that while in Juba look at the mountains traveled go to Scotland if you're not from Scotland somebody said there's quite a few people to Scotland 100 I was given the opportunity to look at some mountains in England we don't see mountains sad like we see hills
go to places like don't go for a trip with your family just beach and that's in a worldly you know hotel and a five star hotel no if you want to make a journey go to a journey where you see the you reflect on the narrow under the majesty and the beauty of Allah you know the gym and act upon this hour removed to energy burning paper mostly how the mountains have been installed while an out of the gate for soot they had to cut the earth how it's been
displayed or has been spread out for you.
When you take water think where does water come from? We just read okay I'm gonna brother Kevin every bottle of water by drunk and dealing with whatever it is going to witness come from this time is to know before think you struggle too much for two years do this then it will automatically go to come how did this beautiful mineral water come to us? And the Quran tells us this from the sea it was taken into the clouds and then Allah will reverse with time. But Allah describes the whole process of how this water came to us that Allah sent it went on top of the mountains in a form of
ice and then slowly slowly you know streams was said we just like
and I'm finished where did this come from? The Quran tells us when you get milk Think before you drink this milk for one moment who sang this How did you come? We ended up confident
for you in the catalyst is a sign mistake speaker will be Murphy will Tony remain in front of him when I'm 11 and Holly's answer is additional revealed we give you that which is from the stomach of this cattle of milk we give you it comes through a process which is in between dirty bread and milk and the refer
so we are the deficiencies that he says yeah interference you know the dirt like the dirt and the filth of the stomach when baby first in water.
From in between those two things Allah gives you Laverne and Carly Simon Saudi and Alicia pill milk like Dr. Reddy says come through it.
And it's pleasant to drink doesn't have the taste of the blood or the dirt of the stomach doesn't have the smell of it. It's pure for one moment before drinking milk think tell your children this is how you should treat it in a you know, upbringing your children, like give the milk say son with this compound, make him look difficult. Five years old, your daughter, your children. This is how you do the rear children. Everything they think they need to think about the children the power of Allah.
Contemplate standing before Allah. This is also difficult. I've already mentioned that, you know, studying before Allah, that he saw the directing think about that all the time, how it could have been convicted. You know, we will be given the Book of Records will come when I came my right hand to the left. We thought about that. I'm sure you are but we need to think about it more like just that moment is coming
What's coming up if you
like, that's it, that's the greatest video. Here it failed the test mot test for your own test or whatever driving lesson or whatever driving test, it's gonna be failure imagine the ultimate failure, the book of deeds.
Right on the left, please, net Finnick home that
this is the full code this is week of the heart.
That's number twos. Con number three contemplating and appreciating the countless bounties. This is very important, thinking about the Nevermind the bounties of a loss of the island.
This is this is a topic on its own at a lecture on this point three. Actually, this is one of the best ways to remove depression.
What's the best way to remove depression, thinking about an appreciating the countless number of the neon, grandchildren Allah even noticed improvements psychiatrics if someone's got mental health, depression, you know what they say? They make you count your blessings. There's a whole book written by non Muslim, count your blessings. That's the way to remove a person as we now know. Allah has given us you know, from the moment we are born.
Every just being able to go to the toilet is an era. Just imagine if that stayed in the daily problems. Every normal water that's the problem with us, me as myself included. You know we have we are immersed in millions and billions of neckcloth Allah one problem, we come to the end of the world I've never seen any of
this is you will be
one problem. One illness, even illness. One of the scholars actually looked at this money under the law, he had a whole tool in taking out eight positives from illness.
We think about the one negative, there's eight great Netmarble law in being held. This happens, this happens. This happens. This happens. This happens. This happens. This happens when this happens.
somebody came to a doctor, that article came along with the subcontinent and said it was extremely hot, like really hot.
So hot is unbearable. He says, Well, you remember it's unbearable, Hot Seat, unbearable heat, but you never looked at how much benefit there is in the seat. How many types of foods, how much you know how many jofy like
germs are killed by this heat. How these certain types of food and dates are only created and worn through this heat. How many people's whole Malaysia and the whole economy rests on this type of heat. And just remember it's always struggling.
Because one chap, he was
really in fever like Dengue fever,
like life threatening fever
under the shadow went to visit him and Sasha how are you?
He was you know when he went to visit you know, sick, he said how are things he said 100 eyes looking up to my ears in my mouth, I can do that my hands and my feet and hungry and I can eat stomach hunger. He said about 20 tons of 100 and thought about 20 Different NEMAHA However, there's one I've got this extra extreme fever make dua that becomes 100 and
first quarter 20 Positive Lamb of Allah
Shapira Rahim Allah is the father of money. He explains this in a beautiful way. He says, You know what we do? We look at our life.
In opposite way.
We read our life story, we read our lives upside down.
We need to read it the correct way.
When we have a problem, we look at the problem but not the positives. He mentioned this afternoon. Continuing Java. You mentioned this. When he was in his old age, he had a son and a son. He was 51 years old, and he passed away. How old 51 So naturally, family members are sad.
People are crying, no problem crying being sad. It's okay. But some people start saying you know,
even so early, he wrote a letter to all his family members. And he said, Look, you guys think of this. There's one way of taking this complaint. He was so young. He was only 50 He passed away too early. He didn't even see the marriage of his children, you know, Virgin Bucha
The days the days you can complain and just be depressed about 20 Different things
that's looking at your life upside down. So right way of looking at these incidents is look, every person in this world did not have a God given right to come. Everyone has come for a short period of time everyone has to go. So debt was written whether 20 years down the line or today when he was 65 or 70. He actually did this with his son he went Hajj and he just came back from college. So he said, Look,
positively Allah gave him 51 years it could have given him 20 Why didn't you look Allah has given him 51 beautiful years. He just went for Hajj he came back pure for sins.
He actually had a son who was studying in Medina said look you went and met a Sunday spent two months with him. He also made him up got that came back met everybody else invited people looked at all the positive and then Allah took him in such a nice way what better way to go to a mother in this this is reading our lives the right way. Not the wrong way. When we sit down to eat together like right now we'll be eating
right now there's about eight nine narrow of Allah just on one food table.
Food is a narrow
the food could be very good food but imagine you've got a stomach problem. Carnage.
So another hamdulillah for no stomach problem. Imagine you don't have a stomach. You're not hungry as another being hungry. You know that? The food is there being hungry. If you're not hungry, you can eat again hunger. Number three, you're hungry. But this problem in the stomach? Connie, no problem. Okay, no formulas tomorrow. When you have like some things you can allergies, you can eat no allergy, or you can have all of that. But imagine a sudden sad news comes from Allah forbid, someone's passed away something everything's dead, but you can eat no sad news. So
and then everybody eating together in a nice week. That's another noun. All in one food invitation a one food table, there's about seven, eight Nerima for luck in mind, each one of them requires a mistake and handling
each. That's why some of the scholars say that you know, drink water as cold as possible so that hamdulillah comes out properly.
You know, in your fall time,
you start to eat and drink water. Lots of people that's when the door I heard a woman walk in a room, like so drunk don't drink water
the veins of the complex. So
drink as cold as possible, so that every part of your body
is so much narrower buffalo you know, this is what I did say, look at people below you if you're dunya there's millions of people who are disabled, there's millions of people who can't even drink this water is the one it's like the greatest animal for some people, if you give them this doubt and seen this in five years of their life and this is more than gold and silver for some people, we take it for granted everyone lives in their own small, you know, problem. This is why I said some people you know, hardship and problems in life. Everybody has their own definition. My problem definition of problem is like something the one in the village of Somalia. His problem definition is that he
hasn't eaten for five months.
Anyway concluding think about the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala unless Lastly, also part of the code is considering one's obligations towards Allah discretion, only talked about this also part of the hook could
make his house of self recognition what do I owe people? Am I fulfilling the rights of Allah? Am I fulfilling the rights of the creation? Two things are necessary to direct the flow of one's thoughts was over this stuff will happen because of two things. One is intense love for Allah Almighty. If we want to do this, we need to create intense love for Allah in tendency look, if you love someone you will think about them as
if you love someone you know, people who are engaged the oldest thinking about the wife
after five years and well after five months they stopped. But before in terms of engagement is always thinking slightly too new, isn't it? We never know that we always think about them they are for the brain will always be with Allah.
And this is like a circle in order to create love. We need to think about the boundaries now off.
The front foot comes through Love of Allah and love of Allah comes through thinking about the Netmarble we sit Wow, Allah gave the status. Imagine somebody you know came every day someone's giving
Your gifts. Everyday someone I couldn't give you 100 pounds every day, every day I'm giving you food somebody knock on your door and give you vegetables and fruits would you have loved?
Because everyone loves to sing the one who does favor on you.
Imagine, I think Subhan Allah, the Quran has verses Watty and Pasuma Ferrazzano in your own bodies, don't you look and reflect? How much will you pay for this is because this one imam in the olden, olden times, he is somebody came to complain to him about some problem but his body, he said, would you give 200,000 dinner? If someone took it I say to get him back. He came to he was complaining about poverty. So would you give 200,000 or something like that deliver dinner for the site that you haven't got? If you if someone takes it when you paint and say yes, of course, would you pay 200,000?
Or 100,000? Different dinner for the ear?
What about Tang, he made him count all the organs of his body 100,000 different 100,000 700,000 At the end of the day, do you own billions. You complain about poverty, you own billions.
Once I start imagine goes, sometimes I've told people I don't if you've tried this, try it.
Try to spend 10 minutes, like this.
Afternoon overtime, every few weeks seriously, spend 10 minutes trying to do your normal work, think how it feels to be blind,
the smoke, but let me give it I haven't traded Watson talking. And then we give a talk later with the eyes. There was a chef in Pakistan, he passed away because there was quite a ways to come up with quite a bit. He was blinded. He used to give talks, whilst being blind. You might see some of his videos on YouTube is the common core logic into the housemates mother's house. And he's eating and he's talking amazing.
Try spending 15 minutes every week, try to do you know not to sit and try and just think imagine a phone, water.
Just imagine, if we didn't have
these things we need to think about and realizing the importance of the next slide of this life. Okay.
So that was just some additional points. I'm not going to I'm going to put up another session. So I'm going to do I think we'll start with this some additional points that don't need us to pick is 46 and 47. Inshallah, we can take that in the current session after the challenge, we do know what branch is compared to the ticker of the tongue, as long as we can have not mind on the hot
of government in the foreign on foreign.
once again, and what I have to work
a guest will be a short session, not too long, about half an hour. So, to conclude some of the points that we'll discuss in the morning session.
And there's much more that can be said a lot more. And time is short.
Keeping in mind for talked about in the morning,
Vic, and fit.
If you remember, if most of you were in attendance,
Victor have means to become verbally become listening and because this vicar of the heart will call you and be contemplation. But
both are important.
If you look on page one, page 46 Some additional points.
That's where we have these two pages.
Although the optimal level is to make quicker with the tongue, and
there is still benefit even if the heart is not focused.
Some people actually say this. But look, what's the benefit? What's the what's the benefit in making vicar if your heart is not focused? But while using hola hola, hola. You're thinking about the dunya there's no no point. So we will actually this is what they say that we make the Corolla your mind is not focused, your heart is not focused. There's no benefit. You really need to it needs to be with it has to do with the focus of course but
so they stop doing big liquor with the tongue is like it's useless or worthless or not beneficial at all in any way, shape or form. This is a wrong understanding. Okay,
Yes, indeed, vicar of the tongue is only a means to the greater regard the ultimate level of optimal level which is being focused on connecting with Allah subhanaw taala but is it less that at least one organ of the body is making the glaucoma okay the heart is not making bigger at least the tongue is rather than the tongue talking about current things and removal things that Reba and backbiting and swearing and slandering Bucha staying silent, which is also good, it's mentioning the name of Allah. So in itself, it's beneficial and one will one will eventually reach the required level this is a nice like somebody keeps on making Vica with the tongue that eventually upon very common Chava
when the heart is focused on minus focus, and that is the ultimate level we need to try even in Salah like we've just offered right now as a start up. Sometimes we don't have the benefit of Salah why because we are not focused so that has to be with for sure and hello could shoot me with concentration you should actually you know really understand the deeper meaning of Salah while of Asana every part of Salah what is the intention what is when the mind has to be
that's when you get you know, there was a course a few years ago in Manchester that some organization arranged and I also taught him with a few other people the whole Salah from beginning to end when we start why are we standing this way? Why are we raising our hands whichever way we're raising there's different ways of raising the hands but smart you know we debate about those issues. That's the inner dimension of Salah when we say hola hola como What are we supposed to be thinking of that time?
One summer you pray like that it changes your life.
Allah Akbar Allah
subhana Coloma will be handicapped What avarcas muka Medina Dukkha Ladoke what's the meaning? What's the purpose? What do you think when you read that pause in other you are in need to adjust to what she really for personality with Anaconda and Eminonu shakey there's two things to read then sudo has a deeper meanings of cloud to have the deeper meanings of the solar every Muslim should know the meaning of solar but
you don't have time to read the whole everything soon about how to recite so many times in a day every Muslim man woman should know the meanings and the basic tools of
Aragon or Allah subhana love being a V Why am I saying that? What does it mean in the core? The power of being a lead with the thoughts
with the focus semi of demon panda Allah He is the one who praises gold are you here? Okay, I'm gonna camera for you is all the praise Allah humara I'm gonna wanna confirm all Allah for you is all the praise foot then in sujood Subhana Allah all the way to the end of topicals time to shoot the two AtariAge what does this the year three belongs to Allah Subhan Allah Allah Allah by Eva belongs to Allah La Monica you have a newbie Nicola Yamanaka Why do we say that why was why was sending so what are the messages that you send them and they do and and it could be any dua it doesn't have to be any one specific one you could say I'm gonna have to get I didn't have to dunya half an hour or
we're gonna have dinner in his words you know what we'll do two minutes and then the other God after follow after Salah is so important that God you know after getting back to the prescribed that God extremely important Saddam Are you going to go to Barcelona to do what intentionally Miku which things come to mind somebody brought up Santa Rosa no no way I would say that's already gone not good like boom, we're all these people were making Salam tundra. What's the intention? I'm really giving the answers the answers we need to learn and then we need to make that intentional increase of Salah money boom what happened to Allah barakato and then straight away stop there are a lot of
stuff that Allah subhanaw taala Yes, why wouldn't you just do Did you rob somebody you just take some away single step through level why there's a deeper meaning behind this why we say software Allah that's Amara return Allah InterSolar Minca cetera and a lot of the other genetic Allahu Allah money on him I'll take him to the info the demon culture, all these have established a god we need to and every person should be themselves sadly in some communities, what happens is like we have this you know,
robotic way of offering Salah and a robotic way of making dua after SARS, like a long cruise. I mean, I mean, I mean, I mean, I mean, I mean I've got the look. After summer, each person needs to need to arm themselves with their own tongue that pickup is that God's after summer with the foot with the intention
So Vega has to you know, I was saying that it's it's still beneficial without the focus but it's we need to get to the mean to the to the ultimate level of everything to do with the thought from salah is a visual. Okay, so let me quickly move on although the color of the tongue is a means to the decline of the heart what should one should never abandon the former synth in that one to the latter? Now some sometimes you think okay, you know what vicar of the tongue was? A means to a level which was that I was focused on one now once I'm focused on Allah, I don't need to make a picture of my tongue. It was the means you still stick you know you don't forget you're not you know, this has
been just loyal. They can with the tongue. Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala has kind of allowed you to lead a person to be fully focused on Allah now connected to Allah. That doesn't mean that now we don't need to know we should still be verbally we can pick up verbal because it's also important both are important. Okay, both
Vic Vic can be done silently. And would you believe that? There's evidence for both.
Although silent becomes more virtuous, this is agreed upon silent to our vehicle, the most silent, the more in isolation, the better or the roar of button. Our healthier remember you're doing in your heart with humility at all. We're doing a Jerry middle of how the Quran talks without uttering loudly, it is permissible there are some Hadith that indicate that loudly as well. And also, like in group, it's permissible, permitted, but preferable is to be silent, slowly in isolation. This is the real spirit of Sharia Kalwa you and Allah nobody else
you know, this is why some of the scholars says that like in Ramadan
in times of Ramadan and you know data to other nobody knows exactly when it rains but like last 10 nights are over, etc. It's not a time to sort of gather and have big big gatherings in the masjid or to our lectures and whenever it's really to focus on yourself and in isolation with Allah.
Maybe in the message have a 20 minute reminder then go home and until worship Allah and are in the masjid worship Allah, it's you and Allah. So, it can be done loudly but silently, it's practice.
Now, what happens is sometimes, you know, some people may do different types of Vica
people do different types of liquor etcetera. Loudly audibly different ways different methods people ask this question, that's what I just mentioned it because it's important to know
different groups have different ways and different methods of doing because
you have two extremes of awkwardness. One extreme is that somebody will just totally categorically absolutely reject it and say every thing is absolutely the half innovation. Like all you know,
just completely everything's innovation.
And there's another extreme where people put too much focus and attention on us like what I mean different methods The Quran says get good in Allah am and Bach road and new beginnings standard 10 New record set and vertical line down to pick up do it in whatever way for now what happens at some in some like, according to some in some communities, or some scholars or some groups or some orders or whatever you want to call them
they prescribe a particular way of doing it because visitors can really only for the purpose of concentration,
okay, only for the purpose of concentration. So like for example, someone's doing vicar silently at university in here or in this room and the guy is getting distracted
every single time for one year I just miss liquor, I start thinking about football, Liverpool, Manchester United
will I start thinking about business or start thinking about something I can't so just to get focus you know, sometimes you did like your study together is more focused rather than individually. So get a few people together
and maybe move a bit as well.
Now this is not from the sunlight smart stablish if anyone starts thinking this to be so now established that because innovation is wrong, but the moving or the swaying, etc is just full focus. So basically, it's like you know, some people they go like this is one of the things you like everything besides Allah and throw it away only online Maha like, Oh Allah, Allah, Allah know that the messenger sonographer didn't do that, and I didn't do that. If someone can
except that sooner,
but to also think that it's always better, that's also really extreme because it's not really you're doing it because of suddenly it's just for what focus. Like if somebody says, you know, if somebody start doing this
exactly the thing you'd like, you know, I'm someone who memorizes the Quran, yada, yada, yada. You know, someone, sometimes someone tells you for you to get focus, you walk and read, I, someone says, I only focus, okay, I'm sleeping stupid, like, you know, once I was driving a car, and I hadn't slept for two nights, and I was driving a car and I was really, you know, like, I shouldn't have used the emergency. And so I said, How am I going to do it, like, I had a coffee, I put the window down, still think sleeping. So I just kept to move ahead like this, right and left, I don't drop off us about 20 Well, just this way, this way, just to make sure that if I'm just driving in the middle
I left. So it's just to get focused. Different ways that people do is not better in themselves. But the problem the other extreme is that you know these things when you don't keep them in limit. There comes a time when people subconsciously or consciously start believing that this is the Sunnah.
Now, a group might say our way of doing things, which is why this is better, or you think it to be more important, or you think, maybe this sooner, and that's when extreme that leads people to therefore, especially in these times, many of my teachers mentioned that just as simple straightforward and complex silently there's no need to go into all these different ways unless you want to get focused and do whatever go you know, walk on the grass and do it if you want to do whatever you feel you feel you're going to get concentration, whichever way someone says I'm going to grass and the vehicle is rather muscles and give me a hadith I go into the grass and the vicar.
Do you need a hadith for that? You don't need to because you're not saying that? Do you record on the grasses sunnah? You're saying the Sunnah, but not the grass part, that's just for myself to understand the point. So this is I could explain this in more detail, but I'll just leave it to that. So, they are not sooner in of themselves or more virtuous and they are not the objective. The objective is connection with Allah, whatever way you get that objective objective or being connected to Allah, what the objective is concentration, focus of heart and mind, whichever way a person receives that then that is best for him.
So these are different types of cricket, cricket, as I said,
because of the salary, because the tongue is very important. You know, like the Hadith the last time it was the Hebrew Buhari, Kalamata returning man for eternity reserve, Kofi Putana. The reason for being returned you can Misa Subhan, Allah who can be Subhan Allah and how the amazing two statements Subhan Allah you will be handling Subhan Allah, I think this is also the vicar of the tongue, because the messengers of Allah or the wisdom says to two statements, if you see that the video, so it should be said verbally.
Now, some important forms of piccata. Finally, I'm going to conclude with this. If you look here,
the greatest form of
ever greatest form of his recitation of the Quran
to Lautoka there is no better book other than recitation is the highest form of the
if we do not have others and just sort of so yeah, have you ever seen brothers and sisters because most programs
if we do not have a habit of four, we don't have in our daily schedule, the recitation of the Quran and others. It is extremely sad. No believers day should begin without reciting the Quran. It is not possible for the believer. This is the book of Allah. Quran. We have time to read every website, Google sharif.com Haven't the whole love eBay, to love God and all everything like every magazine, we have time to read everything, the book of Allah that Allah has given us. This is not Columbus. This is the color of Allah, the speech of Allah. We can't take our 10 minutes nobody's saying everyday five hours if you do hamdulillah
at least 15 to 20 minutes a day. Our day should not start without recitation of the Quran after Fajr Salah after Fajr Salah we offer it for sure and Hello. And then we make our girls Saba that God of the morning and then we should without doubt, recite the Quran. See the change in your life. Specially morning time morning time we need to wake earlier, Steve
Any recovery in the US in the Quran and Virginica Masha Gouda Quran recited around the time of Fajr infringers Salah Ramadan project is attended by the angels it's this very peaceful moment you know when it's not still day and night, the transition between night and day it's like you know, virtual Saudi has taken place in slightly light burger making the speed of Allah who spent half an hour you'll see your whole day your whole day will move smoothly Fajr Salam morning and this Baraka this hadith prolong the verdict, the Messenger of Allah, Allah, people Gurumurthy all on the market in the morning time of my Khumba
even working in the morning time, this product of blessings risks is baraka as well in the morning
so we should have time to Quran recitation.
And then I would also add with this that Quran recitation should give it a bit of
meaning. Again, not all of what we're discussing today is verbal and that's the hot focus concentration or on really the real look without meaning is also beneficial. Lets you read recite one word one Karima, you know one, you get 10 rewards. So 100 likes Cunnamulla you receive reward, but real benefit Brothers is if we recite the book of Allah with concentration and Meaning. Meaning is not for only for scholars.
I don't know who came up with this idea that you know, if you if you try to look at the meanings, your hands will burn.
You can't touch the translation of the Quran. This is a wrong understanding. Yes, the deeper meanings the common tree, the complex fix, come if
you know the deeper issue here are the issues, issues, detail interpretations. Yes, that's what most of you do. None of us are rune scholars. But the Quran is for every every person. I remember once I was travelling in a train, I was going from London, I was going back home I had a university lecturer, this Christian I think, priests to somebody guy who was sitting next to me, we start talking anyways, and are different things. He was asking me what election was about, etc. But anyway, he said to me, can you tell me one thing I said,
I don't understand one thing about Muslims. So what's that?
If anyone in our mind my faith is a Christian or Catholic, anyone who so forth, like goes to the church and practices? Then they've read the Bible and they read the Bible, they will understand about Bibles in English, even if they're not. If they don't, if they're not English, then they will read the Bible in their own language and then understand, but I come across like 90% of Muslims who don't have a clue what the God is telling me.
90% of Muslims they don't know anything what God is speaking to us, and we don't really know why is this it's just
not equipped with the Alpha offers quick read facts.
And then this is what Quran. Quran is before when meaning take us more commentary. That's why this country is written. There is one more article Quran, which is an English review was written for the general public, for them to understand the basic meanings. We need to understand the basic meanings at least last few soldiers with concentration we recite the book of Allah understand the meaning you'll see the difference in your life. So Quranic recitation with the very highest form of the
number to a third of the morning and evening prescribed in the Sunnah.
Lots of God. Again, morning and evening. Find out from the established books was neither authentic things that we need to read. We don't need to go beyond we don't have enough time to read. You know the things which are established. Hola, hola. Vita, and sina zahana are becoming Cena we cannot hear or we can move. There's a few established ones for the morning and for the evening. Pick a few. Don't if you can handle that, but if you try to do too much, then you don't remain steadfast. Pick a few whatever you can fix yourself a time, half an hour every day. I'm going to spend with Allah subhanaw taala in the morning after for just about 15 minutes Quranic recitation.
Five minutes is still far maybe which is number three and 10 minutes, but God says the half an hour and you finish everything. This is like your morning practice one of the shelters to say, you know, some of the students came and said to me, did you have breakfast? Because yeah, what did you have? We told him you know, bread and I'm not talking about that spiritual breakfast. They can use your energy. They can means Quran recitation o'clock in the morning. It's our energy. It's the spiritual breakfast that gives us control for the rest of the day over the evils of the shade part of the nervous
