All praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is our Creator sustainer nareesha, protector and cure, we ask Allah azza wa jal to Sharma 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 karma, oh slaves of Allah, oh Children of Adam. First and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be conscious of a loss of the high net worth either during every single second of our lives if we wish to attain success in this

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

world, as well as the hereafter. May Allah azza wa jal make us all from the people of taqwa mean.

00:02:23--> 00:02:37

before we delve into the subject matter of today's kotoba, I would like to begin with an amazing narration, an amazing Hadith that has been narrated to us by Anna sybrina, Malik rhodiola Juan.

00:02:39--> 00:03:17

And the narration goes along the lines of these words, and as they've been Mr. Alec are the along line who goes on to say that once we were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We were seated with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. Just imagine what a great blessing and what a great opportunity to sit with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and asimina Malik are the Allahu anhu states. We were seated with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and while we were seated with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a gathering, suddenly, sort of like he said, a long while he was

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

Selim said,

00:03:20--> 00:03:59

the man who is entering now is from the people of gender, Allahu Akbar. The man who is entering now is from the people of gender. The Sahaba is one Vita Allah, Allah imagine marine were amazed. They were astounded. They immediately turn to see who this fortunate individual was. They wanted to see who this individual was that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was certifying that he is from the people of gender law. They were eager. They wanted to know who this individual was. They were looking towards the doorway, and suddenly a man enters the masjid. A man emerges a normal looking man.

00:04:01--> 00:04:46

But then anessa Mallika, the long line who goes on to describe, he entered, and his beard was wet through the water of ablution. And there was water dripping, there were droplets of water which were dripping from his beard. And he had his slippers in his left hand, Allahu Akbar. Look at how observant the Sahaba is gonna lie to Allah, Allah majima in Word, and this shows us the zeal that they had in their hearts, the eagerness that they wanted to know who this individual was, what is the special deed that he is doing to be certified by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he is from the people of gender, Allahu Akbar. They were looking at the man he entered, and he went

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

about in his doing his usual activities in MSG, the next day, the following day, once again, he said a long while he was alive in the gathering. Suddenly he says, The Man Who is entering now

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

From the people of Jenna, immediately they turn again they wanted to see who this individual was. It was the same man. And once again, his beard was wet after ablution and water droplets were dripping off his beard, and he had his slippers in his left hand. The third day, once again, they were seated with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. For the third time, no sort of law. He said a long Why didn't you send him states, a man, the man who is entering now he is from the people of Geneva, once again, they look and they find that it is the same individual, his beard wet after ablution water dripping

00:05:35--> 00:06:18

and his slippers in his left hand. Abdullah even I'm reading the last or the last one who could not contain himself. After the gathering of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he rushes to this individual, and he seeks permission from this individual. He does not inform him about what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said in regard to him, but he asked him, can I stay with you? Oh, brother, can I stay with you? That man he permits him and Abdullah the alumni who stays with that individual for a few nights. His intention was that he wanted to closely monitor this individual Why? Because he wanted to find out what is the special good deed this individual is doing

00:06:18--> 00:06:34

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is certifying that he is from the people of gender, Allahu Akbar. Look at their zeal, look at their eagerness, Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala fill our hearts to with such zeal that we look forward to Jenna I mean,

00:06:35--> 00:07:19

now after a few nights past, Abdullah the Allahu anhu does not notice anything amazing or anything out of the norm that this individual is performing. Rather one night approaches he sleeps well. The only thing that he notices is that whilst he is sleeping whenever he turns in his sleep, whenever he shifts positions while sleeping, he praises Allah subhanahu wa taala. He remembers Allah azzawajal he glorifies Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is not an individual who fasts during the day, he is not an individual who keeps up the whole night praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Ne, he has a good night's sleep. And then he wakes up for fudger just like a normal individual. So after a few nights

00:07:19--> 00:07:45

are below the alarm line, who now approaches the individual? And he says, he informs him about what was the one he said a long while he was lm had said about him. And then he told him, you know, the actual reason why I requested to stay with you is because I wanted to monitor you. And I wanted to find out what is the special good deed that you are doing so that I will also be able to bring it in my life, thereby securing gender.

00:07:46--> 00:08:03

The man thinks for a while. And then he says, because of the long line who asks the individual can you please tell me are you performing any secret good deeds, any good deeds that I cannot see? The man thinks for a while and then he says no. Yeah, Abdullah.

00:08:04--> 00:08:46

I am as you see me, this is who I am. I don't perform any secret good deeds. This is who I am. So I don't know what was the one he said a long while he was selling was indicated at the bar. The other one was feeling a bit disappointed because he wanted to know so that he could bring it into his own life. He leaves now with a heavy heart because he was disappointed. Now whilst he was leaving, this man calls him out because him again, yeah, Abdullah, come here. The man comes back. In other words, Abdullah, the long line who comes back and then the man says, Well, now that you mentioned, I was just thinking about it. There's one thing that I do every night. And that is that every night, I

00:08:46--> 00:09:30

free my heart, from all ill feelings of love, I free my heart, from all ill feelings. I free my heart from hatred, I free my heart from grudges, I free my heart from all types of negative thoughts that my heart may have harbored towards another brother or another sister, Allahu Akbar. And then I have the Lord of the alarm line, who states that is a great deed and that is what we fail to do. But along the lines of these words, that is a great deed that you are doing or that is the great deed that you are performing. And we fail to do that great deed we should try.

00:09:31--> 00:09:36

And again, amazing narration My dear, respected elders and brothers in Islam and amazing narration

00:09:38--> 00:09:52

and this narration highlights to us the importance of the purity of our hearts, the purity of our hearts, and that is why we I decided in the beginning a lot as a powerful maker he states in the novel called on yo mela

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

maluma by noon, your wealth. your net worth will not help you on that day. When is that day

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

The day of the AMA, Yama infer Oh man, your wealth will not avail you. Wherever known. You may have a huge family. You may have many children. They aren't going to help you on that day. What is going to help you on that day in law and law Have you been Saleem, except for the individual who comes with a sound heart, a pure heart, a heart that fears Allah subhanho wa Taala a heart that abides the commandments of allies of a gentle, a heart that stays away from all that which Allah azza wa jal has prohibited. In another narration, our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said,

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

an hour in a field yesterday, Moldova,

00:10:43--> 00:11:34

that in every individual's body, there is a piece of flesh, Allah, we're in a field just as the Buddha, in every individual's body, there is a piece of flesh, either solid or solid, just a docu, if that piece of flesh is good, if that piece of flesh is sound, if that piece of flesh is upright, then the whole body of that individual will be upright, it will be good, it will be sound. And on the other hand, what either first sir, that Casa del just a Dooku. If that piece of flesh goes bad, if that piece of flesh becomes corrupt, if that piece of flesh is spoiled, it results in the whole body of that individual, going bad, going evil, becoming corrupt me lost behind them, what Allah

00:11:34--> 00:11:47

save us all. And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on to say, Hello here. And that piece of flesh is the heart. That piece of flesh is the heart.

00:11:49--> 00:12:29

And when we say heart, many respected elders and brothers in Islam, as I say, often we're not talking about our physical heart. We're not talking about our physical heart. We're talking about our spiritual hearts. And when we say that our hearts are riddled with diseases, we do not mean cardiovascular diseases. Now do we mean our physical hearts but we mean our spiritual hearts and we're talking about spiritual diseases, spiritual melodies, melodies that are riddled our hearts and made our heart sick, made our hearts hard. May Allah Subhana Allah save us all. My beloved shave email, maybe we'll call him Rahim, Allah Mahela, who is rightfully known as the specialist of the

00:12:29--> 00:13:21

hearts because his writings in general revolve around an individual's heart. He talks a lot about the spiritual heart. And he talks a lot about spiritual diseases, there is something that we can derive from his writings, a general conclusion. From his writings, there is something that we derive and that is that in general, all of the diseases of an individual's heart is linked to one general factor, one general factor, and that is for good dounia and that is the love for this dunya the love of this world, the more an individual loves dunya the more an individual loves this worldly life, the harder his heart becomes, the harder his heart becomes. And the more riddled his heart becomes

00:13:21--> 00:13:48

with diseases because of his love that He has for this dunya for this materialistic worldly life, we have lost behind the what Allah save us for. And on the other hand, the more he removes the love of this dunya from his heart, his heart becomes pure, his heart becomes soft, his heart becomes supple and tender, his heart becomes more closely attached to Allah subhanahu Wata Allah. May Allah azza wa jal make all of our hearts soft and tender. I mean,

00:13:51--> 00:14:01

the minute our hearts become heart, the minute our hearts become riddled with diseases. That's when we begin a hunt for spirituality because many respected elders and brothers in Islam.

00:14:03--> 00:14:50

You see the creation of men? And this scholars Rahim Allah explained, when you look at the creation of men, what have we created of? Allah azza wa jal has created our bodies from clay, as we all know, it has been created from clay. Clay is a substance from this dunya clay is a substance from this dunya now what about our soul, our soul, our roof, we don't have much knowledge about it. All we know is that it is a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala it is from the matters of our Creator. And our soul is something that is generally or all the time attached to the Hara. Our soul is attached to the Hara, and that is why my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, our body, our bodies in

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

general yearn for this dunya yearn for this lowly dunia yearn for the desires of this dunya the base desires of this dunya because

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

Because our bodies have been created from this dunya on the other hand, our souls desire for the Hara our souls desire for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala our souls desire for Jenna because our souls have been created from the Hara, they yearn to go back to the era. It is from the matters of a loss of behind that what Allah Allahu Akbar, as he states in the noble Koran. Why?

00:15:40--> 00:16:21

No Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they will come to you asking you about what are the rules about the rule? Tell them who you know, for me, I'm Robbie. Tell them that the rule of the soul is from the matters of my Lord Allah. Wa t to me minute helmy illa Paulina, and you have not been given knowledge in regard to it except a little knowledge, only a little knowledge. We live in the era of rockets and modern technology. But what have the scientists what have the so called intellectuals of this world, found out about the roof? What have they found out? What have they found out about the soul? They haven't found out anything about the soul, because Allah Subhana Allah Allah has not

00:16:21--> 00:17:09

given us much knowledge in regard to it. Allah Akbar, may Allah subhanho wa Taala open the doors of goodness for us. And that is why my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam coming back to the creation of men, that is why we yearn for spirituality, just as how we feed our bodies with food from this dunya just as how our bodies feel hunger, our bodies feel thirst, and we need to feed our bodies we need to fuel our bodies. Our soul also needs nourishment. Our souls also need food. So what can you feed your soul? Can you feed food? Can you feed water? Can you feed fruits and vegetables? No, you need to nourish your soul with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you

00:17:09--> 00:17:23

need to nourish your soul by getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to nourish your soul by involving yourself in activities that please Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the nourishment for a soul.

00:17:24--> 00:17:30

May Allah azza wa jal keep all of our souls energized and nourish to please Him, I mean.

00:17:32--> 00:17:32

Therefore,

00:17:34--> 00:18:23

we begin our hunt towards spirituality the minute our hearts become hard, but then sadly, today, we don't know where to go for that spirituality. Some people turn towards yoga. Some people turn towards yoga, why? Because they are searching for that inner peace. They are looking for spirituality. Some people turn towards locking themselves up in dark rooms and chanting various chance, looking for spirituality. Other people turn towards innovations, looking for spirituality to make their hearts soft. They involve themselves in all kinds of dances, all kinds of whirling dances to try and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala none of which is in accordance to the Sunnah of our

00:18:23--> 00:19:11

beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Have you ever heard of the prophets that along while he was in him dancing while remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala Does that even make sense? No. We are going away. We actually looking for spirituality and drifting away from the pure Suna of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Imam Bukhari Rahim Allah in his book, Imam Bukhari Rahim Allah has devoted a complete chapter known as Kitab Rica. In other words, the chapter of heart softness, the chapter of heart softness, where in that chapter, he focuses and the crux of the matter that can be derived from that chapter is that the main disease for an individual for an

00:19:11--> 00:19:53

individual's heart to become riddled with diseases is the love for this dunya is the love for this dunya and drifting away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So primarily we need to uproot that love that we have firmly embedded in our hearts in regard to this dunya we need to uproot that love by bringing in our hearts that this life this materialistic life is a temporary life is a temporary life. The mere fact that we are going to leave this dunya should make us think that there is no point in amassing millions and building mansions to live permanently in this life because we are not going to live permanently. We are going

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

to live for a very short span of time in this dunya our permanent life is the Hara and that is where our

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

focus needs to be and that is what we need to be preparing for May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us all to do So,

00:20:08--> 00:20:32

moving on to the diseases of an individual's heart. Now I just gave you an introduction into the importance of softening your hearts. Now we move on to the diseases that riddle an individual's heart time does not permit for me to list the diseases and to touch on every single disease. Therefore, I wish to first focus on one particular disease, a very destructive disease known as hazard.

00:20:33--> 00:21:17

This disease sadly, has become widespread, and many of us myself included our hearts a little with some form of Hazzard Miller's behind the hood Allah purify our hearts, I mean, so what is hazard? hazard is an Arabic term, and before I define hazard, I would like to highlight something that Arabic is such a beautiful language, such an such an eloquent language, that English or any other language for that matter fails to encompass the beauty of Arabic. Therefore even if you were to try and translate an Arabic word into English, English fails to do justice to that Arabic term. Say for example, if we talk about the term robbed Allah subhanho wa Taala is our rub. Allah azza wa jal is

00:21:17--> 00:21:57

Arab. If I were to try and translate that into English, Rob is translated in English as Lord, Lord. But now when I say, Lord, you don't really fathom the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala through the term Lord. But on the other hand, when we look at the term Rob, there is a list of translations given for the word Rob nourisher. protector, cura provider, he is the one who sustains us, He is the one who provides for us, all of this comes in the term rub. Arabic is such a deep and eloquent language. So now coming back to the term that I wish to translate hazard.

00:21:58--> 00:22:41

hazard is an Arabic term that can be translated as jealousy, or envy. And in general, when you look at the English language, in other words, into these two terms, jealousy and in and envy, more or less, they are synonyms. They stand for the same meaning. But after a deeper analysis, we come to a conclusion that there is a slight difference between the two, between jealousy and envy. Jealousy is when you have something, when you own something, you have something and you fear losing it to someone else. That is the correct definition for jealousy. Jealousy is when you have something and you fear losing it to someone else, you fear losing it to someone else, that's when you feel

00:22:41--> 00:23:04

jealous. And on the other hand envy is when you see something that someone else has, when you see something that someone else has. And you desire it because you do not have it. When you see something that someone else has, and you desire it because you don't have that particular object. That is the definition of envy.

00:23:05--> 00:23:35

Now, both of this jealousy and envy is incorporated in the term hazard. Now coming back to hazard in its Arabic sense, hazard is of two types. So now that I have given you the definition of hazard, I won't translate it Henceforth, as you all most probably now understand what hazard is hazard is of two types. hazard is of two types, a positive type and a negative type. Let's deal with the negative negative type first. Now the negative type is a type which is full of hatred,

00:23:36--> 00:24:25

envy, and also pure negativity, this negative type. This is when you see someone being blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala by a particular blessing. And when you see that person enjoying that particular blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you just want that blessing to be removed from that individual. This is the negative type of hassle. Say for example, if Allah Subhana Medina has blessed an individual with a beautiful house with a beautiful house. Now you look at the individual. And deep down all of these ill feelings start dominating your heart, where you wish destruction for that house, you wish that that house be destroyed and removed away from that individual. This is the

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

negative type of hazard malice behind them what Allah save us all. And it is not only applicable to objects, it is also applicable to talents. Maybe you see an individual who is extremely intelligent, an individual who is perhaps a good speaker, an individual who is doing well in business, an individual who is enjoying a high position of power and authority. Now you look at that individual and you envy that individual. You wish that that talent be stripped away from him. Allahu Akbar. This is a very evil type of

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

Jealousy an evil type of asset. It is a very self destructive emotion because it destroys the individual who harbors that emotion may have lost behind them what Allah save us all. Look at the story of the children of Adam and Eve Salatu was set up.

00:25:17--> 00:25:54

The two sons of Adam alayhis salatu salam, O. Allah azza wa jal accepted the sacrifice of one of the one of them. Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted the sacrifice of one of the sons of Adam Ali salat wa salam, resulting in the other son becoming jealous of his brother. And that led him to killing murdering his own brother. Now you see how destructive this emotion is. It makes a brother kill another brother, Allahu Akbar, his own brother, his own blood brother. This quality is from the devil. It resulted in him murdering his own brother.

00:25:56--> 00:26:19

But then, on the other hand, the brother who was murdered, he had a pure heart. He had a clean heart. He had a sound heart. And what did he say? When this brother came to kill him when his own brother came to kill him? What did the brother who had a pure heart say? Allah azza wa jal mentions the beautiful statement in the noble Koran the statement of this brother

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

in me

00:26:46--> 00:27:19

in a yoga, Kalitta kulani if you my brother, out, stretch your hand to kill me, even if you stretch your hand to kill me for this petty issue. Ma Anna vivocity a de la Cali akula. The translation goes along the lines of these words, ma de Barcelona de la Cali aku like I will not out stretch my hand to kill you why, in me a half a la hora de la la mean, I fear Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Lord of the worlds, the creator of the worlds of LA.

00:27:21--> 00:27:56

That was because of his pure heart, even when his brother approach to kill him, he said that I will not kill you it is because of a pure and sound heart. May Allah Subhana Allah bless us all with pure hearts. Moving on to the second type, which is an interesting type because it is a positive type of acid. It is a positive type of acid. And it is known as a webtalk. It is known as ellipta. And this is when you see a blessing when you see a blessing in another individual. And you want that very same blessing. But you don't want it removed from that individual.

00:27:58--> 00:28:35

When you see a blessing in another individual, and you want that very same blessing just as they have it without them losing it. This is the positive type of hustle. There's one particular generation where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, la casa de la with nine, there is no hazard, you cannot have a hustle, except in two cases. And also realize that along while he was elemento, to clarify, number one is in regard to an individual who was also the hyena who Allah has blessed him with knowledge. And he's imparting that knowledge. The narration goes along the lines of these words, an individual whom are lost behind them what Allah has blessed him

00:28:35--> 00:29:18

with knowledge with wisdom, and he is imparting that knowledge. He is disseminating that wisdom, he is teaching others, you can envy that individual, you can have hassard in regard to that individual, how I wish that I had such knowledge to so that I also could impart knowledge. Now you're not wishing that the knowledge be taken away from that individual. All you're wishing is that I also wish that I had knowledge to impart like how that individual is doing, it's permissible to do so. It's a praiseworthy type of hustle. And the second type is when Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses an individual with wealth, with money with wealth, and that individual is spending that wealth, the

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

path of a loss of the high net worth the IRA for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, if you do not have such wealth, you can have hassard in regard to that individual. Oh, how I also wish that I had such wealth. So I could spend in the path of a loss of a high net worth the IRA, like how that blessed and fortunate individual is doing so how I wish I had wealth so that I could spend for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah Allah so that I could spend for the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala just as how that individual is pending, so many respected elders and brothers niska Islam scholars Rahim Allah explained that in regard to this particular type of hazard, this positive type of hazards

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

They explain that you can have this type of hazard as long as it's in regard to good matters as long as it is in regard to good matters, if it is in regard to the matters and nothing in regard to this dunya now, you cannot have a hazard in a way that oh this individual has has a nice car has an expensive motor vehicle, how I wish I also had such a motor vehicle, but let him also have his motor vehicle. Now, this is not known as it is only applicable to matters of goodness, it is only applicable to matters that are related to the weather related to pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala. As for the matters that are related to this dunya to this materialistic worldly life, you cannot

00:30:45--> 00:30:49

have acid in regard to it. May Allah subhana wa Taala save us all.

00:30:53--> 00:30:58

Now that I have given you all the two types, the positive and the negative type of asset

00:31:00--> 00:31:14

there's one more thing that I wish to clarify. Look at the narration. Even though it is a positive type Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam starts the narration off by saying Allah has said he left his name. So in allama

00:31:15--> 00:31:59

Kalani Rahim Allah He mentioned in his famous book full body in regard to this as to why it is also wise for a long while it was lm even though it is a positive type, it is a positive and a praiseworthy type. Why did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam state has it? Why did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam use the word hazard? Because hazard is a negative type ellipta is the positive type. Why did a supervisor alarm while he was lm mentioned the negative type even for the positive type. And he explains the reason being is because even in the positive type, it begins in a negative sense, because you are noticing a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala that has been conferred upon

00:31:59--> 00:32:39

another individual, ignoring the blessings that have been conferred upon you. You are ignoring the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed you with. If you look at your own life, you have been blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala by numerous blessings, but instead of looking at your own life, and showing gratitude unto Allah subhana wa tada you are looking at another individual who has been blessed with certain blessings. And then you are having hassard even though it's positive, it begins with negative and then becomes positive as long as it's in regard to matters of goodness, but if it is in regard to matters of this dunya and also if you wish that that blessing be stripped away

00:32:39--> 00:33:25

from that individual, then it is a blameworthy type of hazard. It is a blameworthy type malice behind what Allah save us all. And amount of time, Rahim Allah goes on to mention almost around 15 to 20 evil consequences that an individual who has the evil type of facade will have to face May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. Due to the lack of time I'll just touch on three very swiftly, three evil consequences. Number one, hacer fills an individual the evil type of acid fills an individual's life with negativity, he becomes a dull, dark, gloomy and negative individual. Why? Because he's ignoring all of the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed him with and he

00:33:25--> 00:34:07

is looking at other individuals. Oh how I wish my life was like this individual How I wish I had a house like this individual How I wish I had a car like this individual How I wish I had this How I wish I had that he is never grateful to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he's never positive, he is always negative. He becomes a very negative, dark and gloomy individual. He never has a positive outlook in regard to his life. His life is never bright. Each and every morning when he gets up. He gets up with negativity, he has an aura of negativity around him. He starts to affect the individuals who are around him also because of his negative attitude, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah

00:34:07--> 00:34:30

save us all. And may Allah azza wa jal bless us all with positive attitudes to become like our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was the biggest optimist ever to walk on the face of this planet. The next evil consequence that an individual has to face is that he will be filled with false senses of reality, false senses of reality, and I'll explain.

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

Look at the story of the creation of our father Adam led salatu salam What happened? Allah azza wa jal created Adam Allahu Salatu was salam, and commanded, he believes, and the angels to prostrate unto other Maliki salat wa salam, the angels lasuna wahama amerihome maroun The angels, they are blessing creations of Allah behind them with the Allah. They do not disobey Allah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:25

Behind a hotel, they immediately complied and they fell down in such a way that they did not question the order of Allah Subhana Allah Allah because Allah azza wa jal is the maker and he does what He wills and what he wishes. But on the other hand, what happened to he believes, he believes his heart was a little bit faster now. Why? Because he fell, what did he say? holla Pattani Yala Pattani mean.

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

Now he started to suffer a

00:35:31--> 00:36:14

inferiority or superiority complex where he started to say I have been created a fire. I have been created a fire and he admonish ratusan has been created of play. Now why should I make sagitta to him? Now look at the false sense of reality that filled his heart. You know what was it? He thought that now he is going to lose the high position that he is enjoying. He was enjoying a high position at that time. He thought now that are the Merlin salatu salam has come into the scene. Now that admiring Serato Sam has come into the equation now are the Malian salat wa salam is going to strip him of his high position. You see a false sense of reality, while in reality have lost the hand and

00:36:14--> 00:36:46

who are the IRA it was just a mere command. Allah azza wa jal was not going to strip a police of anything. It was a command to check who was obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he believes failed that test resulting in him becoming a curse and thrown out a lot of false sense of reality. Look at the brothers of use of Allah He salatu salam, the brothers of use of Allah His Salatu was Salam. Why do you think they went and dumped their own brother, Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in a dark? Well, why?

00:36:47--> 00:37:34

Jealousy has a false sense of reality. They thought they were under the impression that their father had a soft spot for use of Allah Salatu was Salam. And that soft spot would result in the father hating them was that never was the case. That never was the case. It was a false sense of reality, this hazard, this evil type of hazard fills your heart with false senses of reality, where you start thinking, Oh, that individual prefers that individual better. Or maybe my boss likes, or is closer to that employee over me all kinds of false senses of reality. Maybe my mother hates me and loves my brother or my sister. It is from the devil. It is from shaitaan It is one of the traps of shaitaan

00:37:34--> 00:37:55

we are shaytaan whispers all kinds of false senses of reality in your heart. And the final evil consequence My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam is that this self destructive emotion, this self destructive quality of Hazzard, eats away and destroys all of your hard earned good deeds

00:37:56--> 00:38:04

also lies for a long while he was a lamb is reported to have said in a hacer de hacer una cama takuna

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

indeed jealousy

00:38:09--> 00:38:57

destroys your good deeds and I look at the example or supervisor or Islam gifts. Indeed jealousy destroys your good deeds just as how a fire gobbles up firewood. firewood you know when you have firewood, dry firewood, the minute you light firewood, it crackers and it goes up in flames. And all that remains are the ashes of that firewood. The fire just gobbles up firewood, just like fire bubbles of firewood. Even without you knowing by you harboring this self destructive emotion, this self destructive quality. That quality will destroy all of your good deeds. Why do you come to the masjid early? Why do you come for Juma? Why do you come for the five Salawat to the masjid? Why do

00:38:57--> 00:39:35

you read the Quran? Why do you fast in the month of Ramadan? Why do you spend and go through all the sacrifice to go for Hajj? Why do you go on camera? Why do you give out sadaqa? Why do you give out Zakah from your money? Why do you involve yourself in so much of good deeds only to have all of those good deeds gobbled up by jealousy? by a tiny thought of jealousy? Where you think even of someone where you have a jealousy in regard to someone when your heart becomes hard, you lose all of those good deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. Look at the Hadith that I started off with my dear spiritual elders and brothers. Now, if you maintain a pure heart, you are guaranteed

00:39:35--> 00:40:00

gentlemen. What is that man do no special deeds, no great mountains of good deeds. He was not an individual who was fasting every single day. He was not an individual who was up the whole night praying 1000s and 1000s of Raka No, he was an individual who had a pure heart, a good heart, a clean heart. And that is what you and I we lacked today. All of us. We have hearts material.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

Respect to elders and brothers in Islam, but we look down upon people. We think bad about people. We have grudges about people, we hate people.

00:40:09--> 00:40:53

We are selfish. We only think about ourselves. We don't have pure hearts. That does work on our hearts. It does work on purifying our hearts, many respected elders and brothers in Islam. The minute we purify our hearts, we will be able to sleep well. Why? Because we don't have any kind of a grudge towards anybody. We did not hate anyone that anyone enjoy anything. After all, this is a temporary dunia dunia where Allah subhanho wa Taala does not even have the value of a goat with his ears cut a dead goat even that Rasul Allah Islam give a comparison in regard to this dunya is like a dead goat with its ears cut, no value at all. Allahu Akbar, but we are handcuffed behind dunia we

00:40:53--> 00:41:39

run behind dunia we have made dunya our focus we have made dunya our aim we have made dunya our end goal. Whilst on the other hand, the Hera the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala has to be our end goal. Therefore my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, it does work on purifying hearts that does work on maintaining the beautiful relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let us work on getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and let us work on following the authentic sooner of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let us stay away from all kinds of innovations for every innovation is a misguidance and every misguidance is in the blazing fire of

00:41:39--> 00:41:55

jahannam May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us oil. May the almighty forgive all of our sins. And just as how he united us here this beautiful afternoon may unite us in the gardens of gender with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean wah wah Yan hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
