Respected elders brothers and sisters and the viewers of the daily reminder network as salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Allah ashrafi nambia evil mousseline Nabina Wahhabi vena cava Pura, Tru Nina Muhammad ibn Abdullah Allahu Allah Allah He was Javi of Balu salatu wa anata Mata slim Ummah bad. As always, we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala with our Creator, sustain and nourish, protect and cure, we ask Allah Subhana Medina to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all

00:00:43--> 00:00:54

those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of the AMA. inshallah Allah for tonight's hearts off now, we will be touching on a nap.

00:00:55--> 00:01:48

Scholars, Rafi mahoma law have given various translations in regard to the term and but for tonight's talk Swapna, we will be sticking to the translation known as the ego. So we will be translating unops as the ego and I'm sure as all of us know, a human being the son of Adam is created or consists of three elements primarily being the roof, otherwise translated as the soul and then the heart, the heart, the spiritual heart, which we talk about a lot. And then the third element is unops, otherwise translated as the ego. So what about the body then, the body is just a mere convince, that is used to travel this short life of dunya. But the main three elements that the

00:01:48--> 00:02:00

son of Adam consists of, that we consist of, is the role and then the heart and then the next otherwise translated as the ego.

00:02:01--> 00:02:13

So in terms of the nuts, otherwise known as the ego scholars, rahima como la de mentioned that the creation of these three elements there is a slight difference amongst the three.

00:02:14--> 00:02:53

If you take the knifes and the heart, it is created from that which is from the earth otherwise clay, otherwise known as clay, but as for the roof, primarily before we delve into the matter, we have to understand that it is all from the world of the unseen the oligarchy tabula rasa Buffy houden, Lil Mata Thien alladhina umino Nabeel avoid the people of taqwa they are those who believe in the world of the unseen, this is all from the world of the unseen and it is upon us to believe in all of that. So now coming back to another place, Allah subhanho wa Taala states why as I know that can

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

be one

00:03:07--> 00:03:52

and Mohammed said a long while he was lm, aluna Gani roof, they come to you asking about the roof, cool our roof, I mean, I'm Robbie say unto them, that the route is from the affairs of my Lord, oma ot to minella ilmi illa karela and your IE mankind have not been given of it in terms of knowledge, except very, very little Allahu Akbar. So we really do not have knowledge that encompasses completely about the roof. But scholars have derived these pieces of knowledge from the Quran, from the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because in terms of the creation of the road, Allah subhanho wa Taala states in another place in the noble for iron for either some way to

00:03:54--> 00:03:55


00:03:59--> 00:04:50

He does a way to in regard to the creation of other Marlin Salatu was Salam. And when I proportion him, one of us to female ruhi and when I breathe into him, he Adam alayhis salam, wa salam for Kuru, who, who's the dean fall down in such a law unto him in prostration. unto him, we already discussed about this Saturday, it is not a subject of worship, it is a sajida to as a sign of respect a symbol of honor. But now from this we under understand the scholars highlight that the root of the son of Adam is not from the same realm as the knifes and the heart, the color the color of an individual, but it is of a bit of a slightly higher realm, the roof and if you also look at it in this way, the

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

roof keeps traveling. You see, like I said, the body is a conveyance. The minute we discard this body, like a uniform, the roof travels

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

It is almost as if the roof does not perish here it travels on to our Hara, where it really belongs. And that is why my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we always have this inclination towards spirituality. Because the roof when we look at a person's body, the roof belongs to the spiritual realm. The roof belongs to the spiritual realm, and the knifes and the cult belong to the physical realm of this world. And that is why the nuts keeps on inclining towards worldly pleasures towards earthly pleasures. That is why the knifes keeps on pushing a person towards the earthly pleasures because it belongs to the physical realm, Allahu Akbar. But on the other hand, the roof belongs to

00:05:47--> 00:06:32

the spiritual realm. It keeps on trying to turn an individual towards a hero because it is a pure being it wishes to go back to our Hara, it wishes to go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala to devote itself to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Scholars like Mr. Ibrahim Rahim Allah they mentioned my dear brothers and sisters in Islam in terms of the nuts, the nuts is of three types. The next is of three types. It is one knifes but there are three qualities in regard to the knifes the knifes in general from the very inception It is enough to Amara in the story of Yusuf alayhi salatu was salam, the lady of the house, who tried to seduce Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. later on after she

00:06:32--> 00:06:42

acknowledged after Yusuf Ali salatu salam was taken out of prison and she acknowledged the crime that she did. She states and Allah behind them what Allah mentioned her statement in the novel for an

00:06:45--> 00:06:46


00:06:52--> 00:06:57

to be soooo in love

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

to be in

00:07:06--> 00:07:57

the university I do not wish she states I do not wish to acquit myself. In other words, I do not want to free myself in enough sir Amar to Mizzou indeed the left is a persistent and joiner towards evil Allahu Akbar Illa Mara hemara be except for those whom Allah Subhana Allah Allah has bestowed His mercy upon their souls are free from that in Nairobi Rahim indeed my lord is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. So at the very inception, a person's neffs is a Mara Mara in the sense it always inclines towards evil, it always enjoins towards evil Allahu Akbar. And then when a person works on that knifes of his and from this, we understand that a person has to work on his nuts, we all have

00:07:57--> 00:08:47

to work on our new fools on our egos, we have to undergo the process of test gear to next we have to undergo the process of purifying our souls, because coming back to the three elements, the soul, the heart and the nuts, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, there is a constant battle within us. There is a constant battle between the room and the nerves within us and the battlefield is our hearts about the battlefield is our hearts and our room and naps are in a constant battle. And this is why our scholars rahima Humala, they stayed, that the greater jihad is jihad. Allahu Akbar, striving with yourself striving to tame your ego striving to tame your evil desires is a greater

00:08:47--> 00:09:05

Jihad than the actual Jihad by itself. Allahu Akbar, because all of us we need to work on our new force, we need to work on our souls gradually advancing it from ammara to lava. Now lava is a stage where Allah subhanho wa Taala once again mentioned in the noble Koran.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala he swears by the day of the AMA, and then he swears by the reproaching Sol lava is known as a reproaching soul and scholars rahima Kumar they have explained that this soul is actually like a stick in the mud. It is waving from one corner to the other, it's still not firm on what it may go towards even and it may shift towards good it's in the middle. And then the next stage My dear brothers and sisters in Islam is to make our new fools knifes motoman. In Allahu Akbar, the minute our our neffs becomes Muto my inner as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the Quran once again in Surah Al fudger here

00:10:04--> 00:10:05


00:10:18--> 00:10:20

the Wonder hooni

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

at mokuba Yeah.

00:10:27--> 00:10:34

Oh, calm and reassured Sol acaba de la.

00:10:35--> 00:11:24

de Maria, go back return to your Lord in a state that you are pleased and pleased with Allah Subhana Allah in the state of Allah the Almighty is pleased with that soul and the soul is pleased with Allah subhana wa tada Allah in Arabic hero dia de Maria further for LiFi body and enter amongst my slaves my righteous slaves. Further Holyfield Eva de wonderfully jannetty and enter my garden intergender that is the knifes that is a successful naps My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, because in reality we cannot kill fools if we do that we would expire. We have to live with our knifes but it is upon us to tame our knocks on us is evil, it keeps on inclining towards evil, we

00:11:24--> 00:11:43

need to work on our new fools we need to go through the process of purification of our nerves resulting in advancing from ammara to lava and then from from lava to inner resulting in the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Taala being decreed upon that know

00:11:46--> 00:11:56

the other day I was having a very interesting conversation with a friend of mine a very animated conversation Mashallah. And this is this was in regard to a particular TV series. I'm not I'm not

00:11:57--> 00:12:43

in any way an advocate that you should watch it, but there are a few lessons that can be derived from it. And this is in regard to a martial arts TV series. And in the martial arts, there is a there is a concept otherwise known as such. So in a huddle, it is a TV series that is from Japan. And this element the sub so in a huddle is a dark, evil false, otherwise known as the surge of murderous intent, a surge of murderous intent, and we can it is almost akin to knifes ammara. It is akin to knifes ammara. So in that TV series, these martial arts, these fighters, they go through a rigorous training where they discipline themselves. They go through meditation, they go through

00:12:43--> 00:13:29

yoga, they go through different various practices to tame that murderous intent to train that to tame that Setsuna hadow because they fear if they do not tame it, it will consume them resulting in them becoming evil. So even almost as if they become like demons, Allahu Akbar, like why is many brothers and sisters in Islam, we have to tame our nerves because if we don't take our nerves, you see I told you there is a battle between our room and our nerves in our heart, our heart is the battlefield if we don't tame our nuts are not will overpower it will wrestle and pin down our roof, resulting in us being over, come and consumed by our knifes and we would turn our body would turn to

00:13:29--> 00:14:12

that which is evil Allahu Akbar, we will be consumed by the evil force, Allahu Akbar. We need to fight those evil desires. We didn't go through yoga, we didn't go through meditation. We didn't go through all those rigorous trainings. Allahu Akbar, our five times Salah is enough a programming the morning and evening as far as that itself is a great meditation, my beloved shapeshifter listener Allah is reported to have said and this has been recorded by his student Imam Ibn Al Karim Rahim Allah there in the morning in the morning scheffel Islam even a Tamia Rahim Allah right after Salah he would sit in that very place involving himself in Vicar in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa

00:14:12--> 00:14:57

Taala almost until 11 o'clock around 11 o'clock, and he is reported to have said to his student department with Rama hula that if I don't have my breakfast, he used to consider that a vicar as breakfast. If I don't have that breakfast, the levels of Mr or my strength will start to deplete my spiritual strength will start to deplete Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. So it is upon us to be very sincere in our remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala likewise, in our Salah, what all of this has been prescribed for us to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. So let us not give in to our neffs which is our ego. It has tamed our nerves. It has tamed our nerves to the extent that it

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

is pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

Allah the Almighty is pleased with it, resulting in US entering the beautiful gardens of Jenna, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all of our sins, mainly the almighty accept our good deeds and men he helped us in the battle with our new fools with our egos may help us tame it, and may He help us to make it undergo the purification process. And many the almighty unite all of us in the gardens of gender justice, how he united us here tonight with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we're after the Hawaiian in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen de como la jolla.
