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

My dear respected elders brothers and sisters and the viewers of the daily reminder network set up on a Kumara Matsu La Habra character.

00:00:07--> 00:00:27

As we learn here of Manny Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah ashrafi Gambia evil monster in Nabina Wahhabi Bina wakulla to our union and Mohammed bin Abdullah la vida, de vos was happy he offered to selective Adam with the sleep ban. Indeed all praises are for lost behind and who are the Allah

00:00:28--> 00:01:16

who is our Creator sustainer nourish protector and cure, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to shaba his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of the AMA Alhamdulillah. For the past few nights, we have been touching on various aspects which are in relation to an individual's heart and inshallah loudhailer for tonight's hearts off. Now, we will be touching on the heart itself, the heart which is known in Arabic as a coil of alcohol. Alcohol in Arabic means the heart, but then some scholars say why the heart was named as

00:01:16--> 00:02:04

alcohol because of the call loop. In other words, because it keeps changing, it keeps turning, it's something that keeps turning and changing as we all know our hearts do not stick on one thing generally it keeps changing and you know jumping from one conclusion to the other and that is why called is known as cold. So this term is mentioned in the Quran by Allah subhana wa dialler. And there are also a few other terms that allow the almighty users to address a person's heart called food and soda three very popular terms that a lot of the Almighty uses, whenever Allah Subhana Allah talks about eemaan whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the mind and the positive things in

00:02:04--> 00:02:45

regard to the person's heart, or the sicknesses of a person's heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala then uses the word I'll call, I'll call when Allah subhana wa Taala talks about a heart which has been infused with emotions or inflamed with emotions. Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term food which also means hot food. Look at the story of masala is Salatu was Salam. When the mother of masala Surat was Salam was putting him in that particular basket or container and was about to put him in the river Allah the Almighty states about her heart was

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

a moose.

00:02:52--> 00:03:06

Just imagine the state of the mother's heart at that time and she's about to put her son into the river. She trusts the laws behind her diner, but her heart was inflamed with emotions. So Allah subhanho wa Taala state will ask

00:03:07--> 00:03:46

me Mustafa Devo and the heart of the mother of Musa Alayhi salat wa salam became empty because she was so worried for the word Allah subhanho wa Taala us there was for us. And likewise a lot the almighty uses the term solder the term solder which also refers to an individual's heart. When Allah the Almighty is talking about the secrets of a person's heart or that which a person's heart conceals all those things that a person's heart conceals. Look at the statement of Allah subhana wa tada in Surah. to nurse where he states me was was in

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

a Sufi photo

00:03:58--> 00:04:35

Allah v us v so v sudo. are in us the evil one he whispers evil whispers in the hearts of mankind fees sudo. In US, the plural of solder is sudo vi sudo arenas. So these are the different terms allow the almighty powerful maker users in the noble Koran to refer to an individual's heart. Now when we talk about a person's heart, it is of utmost importance Allahu Akbar, it is of utmost importance for us to work on our hearts because my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah the Almighty state in the noble Koran, you know,

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

Sally, honor a day when wealth will not avail nor children will avoid you on that day, wealth and children will not benefit us on that day except in our

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

To law Have you been Saleem, except for the individual for the one who comes with a sound and hell the heart Allahu Akbar Imam

00:05:11--> 00:05:55

who is also known as the specialist of the heart because he talks a lot about things in relation to an individual's heart. He states that that hearts have three types we have three types of hearts. One is alcohol, bacilli, the sound and the healthy heart, alcohol. And number two is alcohol bill minute, a dead heart may Allah subhanahu wa taala save us all from a dead heart. And the third type of a heart is alcohol Bill Murray have a heart which has been riddled with diseases. And now when we say healthy heart when we say the heart riddled with the diseases, we're not talking about cardiovascular diseases. We're talking about spiritual maladies. We're talking about the spiritual

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

heart and the spiritual maladies and diseases in regard to that particular heart. So Allah subhanho wa Taala states your mela

00:06:04--> 00:06:30

by noon on a day when wealth nor children will avail Illa Allah tala hubby Calvin Saleem, except the one who comes with a sound heart IE heart free from all spiritual diseases of the heart that absorbs only goodness and that is devoted to Allah subhanho wa Taala because my dear brothers and sisters in Islam as Allah behind them word Allah states in another place in the noble for an danika

00:06:39--> 00:07:30

Taku Danica you out in sha Allah and that is He Who glorifies and honors the SHA the symbols of Allah subhanho wa Taala In other words, he sticks to the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala he honors the rituals of Allah behind them what Allah stays away from the prohibitions of Allah subhana wa tada for in Taku that is from the taqwa of the hearts of Cuba. The fear and the consciousness of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala Mandala che scheffel Islam Eva Tamia Rahim Allah He states that doctors and philosophers they say that when you talk about a person's mind, you refer to the brain. When you say thinking or when you're talking about a person's mind. Generally the philosophers and

00:07:30--> 00:08:08

the doctors they point to your brain, but that is in relation to your heart, your heart, your mom even a Cathy rahima hula. He says the student of scheffel Islam even a Tamia Rahim Allah, He states that arrogant philosophers, arrogant doctors state ignoring the statement of the sort of lies that a long while in a salon, that thinking and in regard to your mind, etc. That is all to do with the brain of an individual and not the heart of an individual. But look at the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We are also revised for a long while he was lm is reported to have said a taco Hakuna washa illa de terre

00:08:10--> 00:08:49

lm is reported to have said that taco is over here, and he is reported to have pointed towards his chest thrice Allahu Akbar. And that is why my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we have this guilty conscience bricking us whenever we are going to do something wrong. There is this conscience that pricks us within us. And we know that it is coming from our heart. Our heart does not feel right. And that's why we say you know what, my heart does not feel right to do this because it's our heart which is the control center. That is the base of taqwa that is where our taqwa is based, as in accordance to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And my dear brothers and sisters

00:08:49--> 00:09:05

in Islam, the most honorable person in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who has the most dukla the fear of loss of behind and more data and the consciousness of a loss of behind and more data as he states in the Nobel for an in drama tonight.

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

That indeed the most noble or the most of y'all, in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

the one who has most taqwa the most the one who has most fear of Allah behind them who are Dinah, and the consciousness of Allah behind them who are the Allah so coming back to the teachings of Imam and acclaimed Rahim Allah like he said in the like what I said in the beginning, he says that hearts have three types. And then he goes on to say, in regard to a sound healthy heart, a heart is only sound and healthy. If it is free from five things it has to be free from five things. Number one, it has to be free from shift that nullifies an individual's though he is about his heart has to be free from Shere Khan Escobar and Shere Khan as our major

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

And minor shift and we have discussed about major and minor shear in the previous session, so I shall not delve into that. Number one, the individuals heart has to be free from shear, which nullifies an individual's Toshi. Number two, an individual's heart has to be free from all types of all types of innovations that nullify the true following of the Sunnah of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we need to completely stay away from all types of innovations. There isn't something known as a good innovation and abet innovations, innovations or innovations and we stay away from all types of innovations we are lost behind them what Allah help us to do

00:10:40--> 00:11:27

that. Number three, we stay away from a laferla Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah is negligence where we neglect to see the signs of a loss behind them what we neglect to ponder on the verses of the Koran of the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala we stay away from laferla that nullifies Vicar that nullifies the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala number four, we stay away from shanwa, carnal desires, evil desires, lustful desires that nullify us abiding the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the minute you give into your carnal desires, you're bound to break the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala that individual who gives into his evil carnal desires, he is bound to

00:11:27--> 00:12:12

transgress the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah the Almighty save us all. And finally my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it is upon us to say to stay away from our from Wayne desires that nullify allows the meat we give into our the minute we give into Ria, we want to do things for name and fame. We want to do it for the show and publicity. We nullify all we destroy that beautiful concept of Islam, that is to do things sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala very swiftly, let me quickly mention four poisons of the heart. And with that, we'll wrap it up in sha Allah Allah, four poisons of the heart which we need to stay away completely. Number one, excessive

00:12:12--> 00:12:56

talking Allahu Akbar. Unnecessary talking Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said along the lines of these words, that the individual who looks after what is in his jaws, and what is between his two jaws and what is between his two legs, ie his tongue and his private paths, I guarantee a place for him in Genoa Allahu Akbar. If we look after what is between our two Jaws, and two legs are private paths, we are guaranteed a place in gender unnecessary talking seraphina solid some of our pious predecessors even used to fill the amounts with rocks and pebbles at times to avoid unnecessary speech to avoid Wayne talking Allahu Akbar, a survey was once done.

00:12:56--> 00:13:40

Psychologists did this. And they came up to a concrete conclusion that men in general talk about 10,000 words per day, an average adult, he articulates 10,000 words per day. And on the other hand, women, they articulate 20,000 words per day, double the amount. So you know, what we have to think is are these 10,000 words? How many of those words are pleasing to Allah behind that word Allah how many of those words are weighing speech that do not benefit us either in this world or the hereafter? So let us gauge our speech. And let us think before we speak in a way that would please Allah Subhana Allah so the poison number one is unnecessary speech unnecessary talking poison number

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

two, unrestrained glances are lost behind them with Allah stating the noble for our

00:13:47--> 00:13:47

meaning.

00:13:56--> 00:13:59

In no law hobby.

00:14:04--> 00:14:10

Columbo mininova domina busara him say unto the believers to lower their gazes protect their private path.

00:14:11--> 00:14:55

That is good for them that is the best for them. In the law hobby room beam is known Indeed Allah the Almighty is well informed of what they do a lot about. We should try and control our gazes. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, our two eyes are a window to our heart. The more we look at obscene walger material that is prohibited within the guidelines of Sharia, which is completely against the guidelines of Sharia, we hardened our hearts hardened due to those evil gazes. So let us control our gazes like us. Let us abide by the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala and avoid those unrestrained glazed glances as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the noble Koran that he

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

took the sudo Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

Allah knows of those of the of the stealing of your eyes where you steal glances thinking that nobody knows about it. A lot of the Almighty knows about it. And he also knows what not to fish to do that which your hearts can see Allahu Akbar poison number three is that we should avoid. Bad Company we should avoid bad company because your company defines who you are. In other words, who you hang out with your friends define who you are, and bad friends, make your heart go hard and make your heart go evil. So let us choose our friends wisely. Let us choose our company well so that we stay amongst the people who feel lost behind them who are data who are conscious of Allah subhanho

00:15:43--> 00:16:22

wa Taala resulting in us also being steadfast on the right path. Finally, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the final poison is excessive eating, we should avoid eating excessively Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the worst container the son of other can fill up he says along the lines of these words is that is an individual stomach. That is the worst utensil that we can fill up. And it is also from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we divide our stomach into three paths, one third of it for solids, one third of it for liquids, and one third for it of it for air in that way we secure a healthy life for us

00:16:22--> 00:17:00

physically and spiritually. So having said that, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, that is avoid these four poisons that kill and stick in our hearts. And let us pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he blesses us with a healthy sound heart that absorbs only goodness so that that will benefit us on the day when wealth will not benefit us and when children will not benefit us. May Allah Subhana Allah forgive all of our sins, and mainly the almighty accept our good deeds, and may He unite us in the gardens agenda with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just says how he united us here tonight. We'll try and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen de como la jolla.
