00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah here but I cancel

00:00:07--> 00:00:15

I'm actually practicing my UAE so I thought of starting off with a question they put on a hygienic a

00:00:20--> 00:00:24

that's all I know for now, but then I'll be here for a couple of days. I'll pick up more phrases and shout out

00:00:27--> 00:00:37

to him and hungry left behind. I mean, mostly, we'll send him either a short film via you will mousseline Nabina. Habib in our polity, our union Mohammed Abdullah.

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

He was halaby he

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

was named Amanda.

00:00:46--> 00:01:09

We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustainer militia protector and cure. We ask Allah azza wa jal to share with 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

00:01:11--> 00:01:50

my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for this beautiful opportunity that he has blessed me with to be with you all, on this beautiful night. Attack Allah subhanho wa Taala for gathering us together for giving us a chance to meet one another, for his sake, slowed solely and asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless this gathering to make this gathering and gathering where the angels shroud us with their wings, the Sakina tranquility of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends upon us and made me a high soldier make high mention of us in the seven heavens. I mean, I thank the organizers. I thank the the the volunteers, the team members, everybody who got

00:01:50--> 00:02:15

together to make this program a reality with the help of lost animals either because the supervisor along Why did you send them is reported to have said madam yes Kareena slemish karela the individual was not thanked the people has not thanked Allah subhana wa Tada. So I thank all of them. I and I pray to Allah Subhana moods Allah that Allah azza wa jal blesses them as well as their families and give them the very best in this world as well as the hereafter. I mean,

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

so Masha Allah, for this evening, the topic that has been allocated for me is heart.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

So do you all know what I'm going to talk about?

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

Many, many moons ago, there was an individual by the name, Milan also did.

00:02:34--> 00:03:19

The One day, the people of mulas village of his city of his village, they all went to Milan. And they invited him to come and deliver a talk. Now Mullah wasn't ready. And he got a bit agitated because he did not want to deliver a talk. But the people they kept insisting and they kept, you know, pressing him to please come and deliver a talk. So finally, mula agrees, finally, we'll learn a bit. And when the day of the talk arrived, Buddha made his way to the program. And now he's about to address the people. He starts off by asking them, oh, people, do you know what I'm going to talk about? Everybody replied, No more law. We don't know what you're going to talk about, then will not

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

say, what's the point of talking to the people who don't know what I'm going to talk about until

00:03:26--> 00:04:00

now the people were embarrassed. And they thought, let's invite him again. But this time it does all say moolah, we know what you're going to talk about. They go again and they invite the invite hula once again, will not agrees. And on the second day, moolah comes to talk. As he climbs on the stage. He asks the people or people do you know what I'm going to talk about today? Everybody reply in unison Yes, hula, we know what you're going to talk about. The new law says what's the point of talking to people who already know what I'm talking when you talk about and he leaves.

00:04:01--> 00:04:39

Now the people plan and they say, you know what, half of us let's say that just Muller. We know what you're going to talk about. And the other half, let's say normal law. We don't know what you're going to talk about. So the third time they invite moolah manakins. He climbs on the stage and he starts off the talk as usual by asking the people or people do you know what I'm going to talk about? Half of the crowd said yes, yes. moolah. We know what you're going to talk about. And the other half said no Mullah. We don't know what you're going to talk about. The moolah very calmly said, the people who know what I'm going to talk about, please tell the people who don't know what

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

I'm going to talk about and healer.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

But don't worry, I'm not going to say that in sha Allah. We are going to talk about the heart of a believer. We are going to talk about the heart of a believer. The heart in Arabic is known as Kali is known as cold

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to an individual's heart in the Quran, as called, very commonly it is referred as cold and that Allah subhanho wa Taala also addresses the heart of an individual as

00:05:14--> 00:05:27

another Arabic term. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala also addresses the heart of an individual as sada. Now let's start off with why was called known as scholars Rahim Allah explained that

00:05:29--> 00:06:04

in other words, the heart was known as cold because of the low because the heart of an individual constantly keeps changing. You and I think we can attest to it, our hearts are not on one thing for a very long time. It keeps constantly changing from one thing to another. And this is why the heart of the human being is known as so Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever he talks about eemaan or when he talks about spiritual diseases that we will touch on in sha Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal mentions or refers to the heart of an individual using the term called

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

for when does Allah Subhana Medina use the term for

00:06:09--> 00:06:53

that this term is used whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about a heart that is inflamed with emotions, that is infused with emotions, say for example, in the story of musallam salatu salam, when the mother of masala salatu salam had to go and drop Mousavi salatu salam had to put him into the river Nile into the river Nile. At that point, you can just imagine I'm sure the sisters would relate to the mother of Mussolini. So that was a lot better than us. You can just imagine the state of the heart of the mother of Moosa is represented. She was willing to drop her beloved Son into the river Nile and she had to rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah azza wa jal, he talks

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

about the heart of the matter of Musa alayhis salaam he stayed with us by hand for

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

me moose,

00:07:04--> 00:07:49

and the heart for the heart of the mother of musala salatu salam became empty. In the sense she became so sad. There was a worried in her heart because she had to drop her child into the river and I was perhaps the only Mustafa And may Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Sodom. In other words, when Allah azza wa jal refers to the heart of an individual using the term Southern, in general it is when Allah subhana wa Taala talks about the secrets of the heart of an individual or in regard to that which the heart conceals. Because Southern can be translated as chest to the chest, you know, like a treasure chest, you have these treasure chests where you put you know, valuable things into

00:07:49--> 00:08:17

it and you lock it up. Likewise, the heart of an individual, we hide so many things in our hearts, you know, I can't see what's in this brother's heart or in that sister's heart, only Allah subhanho wa Taala he knows what is concealed in our hearts. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about that which the Hopkins's alliance of virgin uses this particular term, SATA, say for example, in sort of coonass mean, shall, was one

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

be us, me, Sophie. So

00:08:28--> 00:09:10

when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the evil one shape on what does he do, he whispers evil whispers into the hearts of mankind. So Dory, now Susan is the plural of Sodom. So these are a few Arabic terms that Allah subhanho wa Taala uses in the Quran, when referring to the heart of an individual, many brothers and sisters in Islam. It is of utmost importance that a believer focuses on his or her heart and works on purifying it, because our heart needs to be in focus at all times. Ally's a virgin, he mentioned the importance of a sound heart in the noble Koran where he states Yo man is.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

Blue Moon in

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

Long Beach.

00:09:20--> 00:09:45

Sunny Yo, mala young man one afternoon, on a day when children no wealth will benefit you. When is the day the day of Korea. What will benefit you on that day in LA have you all been studying the individual who comes with a sound that held the heart that will benefit him on that day on the day of piano? May Allah

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

protect us all? many brothers and sisters in Islam, Imam Rahim Allah He is known as the specialist of hearts. He Rahim Allah. He says that a heart is of three types that are

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

Three types of hearts. One is called lucid dream, the sound and healthy heart are called to study. The second heart is called will make it the dead heart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from dead hearts, I mean, and the third and final one is stage is alcohol, alcohol will marry this the sick heart, the heart that has been riddled with diseases. Now, when we say sound and healthy heart, when we say sick heart, when we say dead heart, we're not talking about the physical heart, nor are we talking about cardiovascular diseases. Instead, we're talking about the spiritual heart. And we're talking about spiritual diseases that afflict the heart of an individual, like jealousy,

00:10:45--> 00:10:56

envy, hatred, maligns, anger, these are all spiritual diseases that sickened the heart of an individual, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, protect all of our hearts. I mean,

00:10:57--> 00:11:09

we need to work on our hearts, we need to purify our hearts because our hearts are of wider importance. Those lines that alone while you send them is reported to have said, In Matthew just said

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

that indeed, in the body of a human being there is a piece of flesh, if that piece of flesh, either solid or solid, just adequate, if that piece of flesh is applied, if that piece of flesh is good, then goodness will come out of that body, only goodness will emanate from that the body of that individual, only goodness, what if I said that but on the other hand, if the heart of an individual goes bad, becomes corrupt becomes evil, fester, that just says, the whole body will become evil will become corrupt, and only evil will come out of that individual's body. Now what is this piece of flesh because otherwise that alone will send a message on to say, over here, it is the heart of an

00:11:56--> 00:12:45

individual. So this is how important the heart is. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to work on our hearts we need to purify our hearts because according to another Heidi to order pizza No. Lu can have serious odor odor. That fear can engender fitna trials and challenges are presented to the heart of an individual. I look at the example like a straw man, like a straw man. Have you seen read man's you know straw woven man's ruin or Oh, that just is how you have pieces of straw one after the other. Phaeton trials and challenges are presented to the heart of an individual one after the other in a very conservative manner. The heart that accepts the fitna that accepts the trial and

00:12:45--> 00:13:28

does not shine it. A black dot forms on the heart of that individual Allahu Akbar. As for the individual, whose heart rejects the evil thought rejects that fitna with rejects that trial, then a white dot forms on the heart. The innovation goes along the lines of these words Oh, come on board halogen. Salatu was Salam. The heart that continues to get white spots becomes like a white gemstone along but the heart that keeps on getting black dots, it becomes like an overturned restaurant like an overturned utensil, it will not be able to differentiate between what is right and what is wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from such hearts. I mean, but the brothers and sisters in

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

Islam.

00:13:31--> 00:14:19

He goes on to talk about the heart and He says that a heart can only become Saleem can only be known as an algo serine when it is free from five things five important things number one, the heart of an individual needs to be free needs to be free from ship ship that nullifies once though he you know that we have ship acrobatic ship us that we have a major form of ship and that is to associate a partner and to a loss of mozzarella and you have another minor form of ship. This minor form of ship is when you think that your job is that which provides you when you think that your parents are the ones who are looking after you when you put aside Allah subhanho wa Taala and start to associate

00:14:19--> 00:14:39

small things unto Allah subhanho wa Taala This is also a form of shift our hearts need to be completely pure from shift we need to get rid of shift completely This is number one number two our hearts need to be pure and free from be the be the innovations that nullify the pure son of Mohammed Salah while

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

you see we don't have a good beta and

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

you don't have a good beta and a bed with either the Kula big controversy, prophets of alarm it would say every innovation is a misguidance wakulla bodalla TV now and every misguidance is in the fire of Johanna May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all

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

We are going to integrate something in the beam. It is as if we're trying to say that Mohammed said a long while ago and he said them did not do a proper job, and we are trying to complete the job of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Kadena combattimento. Allah,

00:15:15--> 00:15:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala has completed the deen. So there is no need for us to innovate in the religion. So we have to stay away from innovations and we prove our love for Mohammed Salah bommali you as you see them because we all love because we realize that a long while in early we send them we improve our love unto him by following his peers sooner. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Number three we need to stay away from a lot of offline in the sense to be heedless of Allah.

00:15:46--> 00:16:16

We need to stay away from Allah. We need to stay away from being heedless of Allah Subhana Allah dialogue, the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala Look around you look around you you see so many signs of Allah azza wa jal even I mentioned in today's photo, as well remember the name of Allah Himself. Here the court he reports from one of our serafina solid, if you want to try and gauge the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you.

00:16:17--> 00:16:26

Just close your eyes for a few moments shall be all fine. Just close your eyes for a few moments, what happens, everything around you goes pitch black,

00:16:27--> 00:17:07

everything around you goes down. That's when you realize the value of the eyesight, Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed you with. Just imagine if your whole life was in darkness, you would have to feel your way around Allahu Akbar. But now Look, look at how we see with so much of clarity whether we be in a place where there is good light or low light, we still were able to see so welcome to the lab. Today we live in a modern era where there has been so many technological advancements in terms of cameras and photography, you and I I'm sure if I were to ask for a show of hands in regard to how many people have smartphones in the cloud, I'm sure everybody would lift their hands up 99.9% of the

00:17:07--> 00:17:45

gathering, we will all have smartphones, except for maybe some of the uncles of the bank, all of us will have smartphones, even the uncles now Mashallah they've also become very modern. Now, all of us we have phones and in every phone that is a camera, there is a camera in the back. And if you look at the technological advancements, like say, for example, the LG g4 and all these models of phones, you have laser autofocus, something known as laser autofocus, like say, for example, if I wanted to take a picture of the brother over here, it would focus on him and give me a clear picture. And if I wanted to take someone at the back, I will just click at the back and they would focus on the back

00:17:45--> 00:18:17

and then the picture would be crisp and clear. But if I don't press the focus button, what will happen is the picture will be a blur, it will not be clear. Now compare that with your eyesight. I'm looking at the brother in the front now. And right after that I'm looking at someone at the back immediately my eyes focus at the back, nothing is blurred for me and I can see so clearly at the back. Am I doing some focusing in my eyes to see the back? I don't have to because it happens naturally. Don't you think this is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala a great blessing indeed what is out there?

00:18:18--> 00:19:01

If you want to try and count the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala you would fail miserably to encompass all of the blessings of philosophy of Medina because the blessings are so numerous in number may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to show proper gratitude unto him. I mean, so we need to keep our hearts free from a law flat where we move away from Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to keep ourselves always connected to Allah as original. The fourth thing is that we must free our hearts from sharing what is shared with Jehovah, his carnal desires, carnal, lustful desires that make an individual to knock people that makes an individual leave the commandments of a loss of time

00:19:01--> 00:19:06

or time lustful desires. Look, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the Noble Quran What does he say?

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

Bora Bora, Xena in

00:19:13--> 00:19:13

Asia

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

don't even think of getting close to Xena Alliance. did not say what does he know don't commit Zina directly instead he says voila, takanobu Xena don't even think of getting close to Xena Allahu Akbar. So we need to stay away from all that which even leads to Xena the avenues of Xena. This is taqwa, we need to stay away from that which Allah subhana wa island has prohibited us And finally, from our hearts into be free from power. What is how are How are his way in desires when desires when we start doing things for show for name and fame? Sometimes we give out charity to be known as a philanthropist. We go to the masjid early pray on the first

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

To be known as a very righteous and pious individual, what is the point of giving all of that money just to be known as a philanthropist? What is the point of going early to the masjid if you're doing it for show and fame? We need to be doing it solely for the sake of Allah subhana wa Jalla another beautiful code by Mr. Medina I couldn't help it. I was preparing for the talk. And it's just his name coming again and again and again. And because he is the specialist of hearts he talks so much about the hearts of of the believers of love, but he states you know, what is the shadow to my heart Betsy physically beautiful quote. The ones who know Arabic will appreciate it, either Buddhism

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

sheduled Mahatma to call for Sophia to be MA in Eskenazi Rosada it

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

is not Anwar as well as popular Hakuna Matata slow her down

00:21:02--> 00:21:21

if the tree of love now I'm sure most of you all must have thought harm therapy has to be something to do with love, you know? Yeah, we'll talk about loving child Montana. If the tree of love is planted in the heart of an individual now what love the love for Amina than the love for the Parliament and

00:21:23--> 00:21:29

the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, I realized that most of the sisters here are known as

00:21:31--> 00:21:58

some fancy women that's why I mentioned it. So if the tree of love for Allah subhanho wa Taala it only said sheduled in my head but he fell apart. If the tree of love for Allah azza wa jal is planted in the heart of an individual was superior to the man in class and if it is water with one, the water of this loves the water of sincerity when metabo. Habib and following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:22:01--> 00:22:31

It was time to give you amazing fruits, amazing fruits. Look at this tree. Look at how strong it is history. Look at how strong it is. The wind is blowing so hard, but still it's firm. Also do Tabby because its roots are firm. In other states that that tree if you want to eat with the flowers and whatever I have been following the sooner Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, its roots will embed itself firmly in the heart of that individual who has a Colorado color

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

and its branches will reach

00:22:38--> 00:23:23

a law. That is the utmost boundary after that no human being can cross Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, there's only Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam reached into the into the branches will reach it because this is the power of that tree of love. Loving Allah subhanho wa Taala when we talk about love with the brothers and sisters in Islam, it is a power for emotion. You know, you can't actually even define love. You're trying to find a proper, concise definition for love you will find that so many people have defined love in so many ways. So finally they come to a conclusion they say love is a mystery yet to be solved. Love is a mystery yet to be solved. Love is something that dominates the

00:23:23--> 00:24:07

heart of an individual. Allah subhanho wa Taala he created all of us with this natural emotion within us that we love one another. There are many shades of love. There are many shades of love, the pinnacle, the prime form of it is to love Allah subhanho wa Taala then you have love for Mohammed Salah longlining love for your family love for your spouse's love for your children, love for animals love for one another. You have so many shades of love, but the primary form of love the pinnacle of love is to love the source of love. The Fountainhead of love who is alive He is the creator of love we need to love him and if we love Him we will end up following Mohammed Salah

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

Salem as he states in the noble for an called a good on so hey boo no la Tabby oni

00:24:19--> 00:24:24

como la jolla finacle No, no back on

00:24:28--> 00:25:00

me say oh 107 Allahu alayhi wa sallam input to the hipbone Allah if you have a law firm that do need that follow me Mohammed Salah hamari linear algebra seven the same news follow me and what will you get in return? Remember it's not a one way street. You Eva como la, Allah subhanho wa Taala we love you in return. Why a fella comes over calm and he will forgive you of your sin is one law over food over him a lot is the most forgiving the Most Merciful. Many brothers and sisters in his

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

We need to work on our hearts we need to bring in the love of Allah subhana wa Jalla we need to bring in capoeira because taqwa is based in the heart of an individual. This is not something that I came up with. Rather These are from the words of the prophets that allow you to send them a tempo havanna taqwa, Hakuna Matata Hakuna.

00:25:23--> 00:26:02

Taco is over here, taco is over here, taco is over here. And he pointed towards his Southern towards his heart, or you can translate as just three times he pointed towards his chest thrice. So from this, we understand that topology is based in the heart of an individual. Why is it based there because the heart is the command center, it is the control center of all of your leanings of all of your limbs. You see, sometimes some people say that the heart has nothing to do with it. The heart is just a pump that pumps blood, but rather the mind is in the brain of an individual. But when you look at the foreign and when you look at the sooner Muhammad said a long while he was alive, it begs

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

to teach us otherwise. And that's why

00:26:06--> 00:26:44

I'm sure most of you are familiar with the brick of one's conditions, the brick of your conscience, so you're about to do something wrong. So you you're planning to do something wrong. Or even, you know, involuntarily you went into something that is wrong. Suddenly you will feel that prick of conscience. You know that voice inside you telling you my brother or my sister, this is wrong. What you're going to do is the wrong. This is going to displease Allah subhana wa Tada, that little musty inside you. He tells you what is right and what is wrong. That is your hand. And that's why you may say, you know, I'm sorry, my heart does not feel right. I don't feel like doing this thing because

00:26:44--> 00:27:31

my heart does not feel right. Why do we say that? Because our heart is in control. But sadly, what happens is a time we just shun away that voice from inside and we go ahead, we go ahead long. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us for my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. We need to stay away we need to protect ourselves we need to build a fortress to protect ourselves from the evil one from shaitan because he will find his level best to mislead us. This is his mission. He gets up every single day and he plans on how can I mislead so and so, how can I mislead so and so how can I lead this one astray? This is what he does. So he will try to put you into shell. If he fails that if he

00:27:31--> 00:28:07

fails in regard to that he tried to put you into the pit of beta into the pit of kabaya major sins He will keep on trying and intelligence Name of Allah will study the traps are shades on and stay away from shade on an individual steps labor for law will study the traps of Chevron and stay away from those traps. This is what an intelligence lab will do because Shelton will use whatever he can What did he say? Color phobia is ethical obeah number Majid Marine, he swore by the might of Allah, Allah by your mind, the old Vietnam,

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

I shall lead all of them astray.

00:28:13--> 00:28:36

Obviously, he cannot then touch the believers who have lost in their heart, but the rest he will keep on trying to mislead us, like I said from ship is not to be that today, you see so many innovations across the world, a lot of times mostly related to and certain innovations are done. They say that out of the love of a lot of the love of the messengers

00:28:37--> 00:29:20

sallam, and certainly innovations are even brought about by chiffon very easily by bringing about certain fears in the heart of an individual in regard to the gene in regard to this in regard to that. I'm sure you are aware. And this is something sadly gripping the oma at large all over the planet, people the middle they're slightly affected by the jinn. They go to some Voodoo doctor who quickly takes grabs the opportunity and takes advantage of that individual. The minute he comes in, he'll be like Yes, yes, you are possessed. There is an evil gene. I see the presence of the evil genius around you. I see a lot of black magic around you I see that you are being affected by evil I

00:29:20--> 00:29:51

Or you bring me lions, you do this you do that I'll kill you. And also I need this many you know I need $500 I need $1,000 he makes a good buck or two as well as the pushers that individually the poor individual who at times may be affected by the gym. At times. It can just be a psychological problem. It can be a physical sickness, but due to the

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

wrong delusional diagnosis of this particular Voodoo doctor. He also falls into the pit of you

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

You know, thinking that some someone has done like magic on me or somebody has, you know, send a gene to possess me and my family, etc. Sometimes, you know, all these things. I've mentioned this before. But all these things maybe other than sisters in Islam are nothing but figments

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

of our imagination, love, you know, nothing other than that. Let me tell you all a story.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

There was once a young boy

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

who went out on a camping trip,

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

a young boy

00:30:33--> 00:30:41

who went out on a camping trip. And after the campaign trip, he returns home now. And it's dark.

00:30:43--> 00:30:53

It's raining, it's thundering and lightning and the wind is blowing How would in a way, it's a funny story, but I'm trying to make it spooky and scary. I hope I didn't scare you all.

00:30:55--> 00:31:39

It was a dark night, and now he's making his way home suddenly starts to rain. And now it's raining hard. And he's actually finding it very difficult to find his way down that, you know, that mountain is strike. So he was thinking if only a vehicle would pass by, I could hitch a ride and get to town quickly. So he was on the lookout for a vehicle but then it was a deserted road, no vehicles at all in sight. And he's making his way down this path. Suddenly, he sees a pair of headlights, you know, looming up ahead a vehicle. So he you know, his spirits lifted. And he quickly started to point his hand like this, you know, I want to hit your line. And the car comes to a stop by him. And he was

00:31:39--> 00:31:57

very happy how kind of this individual he has talked to during a Woodstock in during such a night. And he quickly jumps into the car. Happily, he jumps into the car. But no sooner he got into the car. Lo and behold, he realizes that there's no driver in the driving seat.

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

There's no drive.

00:32:03--> 00:32:34

And then suddenly, the car starts moving now. And the car starts to make its way. Now his heart was trembling. He was petrified. And he did not know what to do in the middle of the night. A car comes and stops. I got into the car, there's no driver, and the car is moving. Now whilst he was contemplating on what to do, he was thinking I better just get out of this funky car, okay. And he was planning on jumping out of the car, when suddenly he saw a restaurant, a diner up ahead. And he thought, you know, he started

00:32:35--> 00:33:15

praying to God saying that I'm hungry now, you know, I can just jump out and now go in there and there might be people inside there. Once he was thinking of jumping out of the car, suddenly, a hand comes through the window and turns the steering wheel. And this was just, you know, crazy. He didn't know what to do. And then he was he opened the door. And that hand turned the car towards the restaurant. And the car came to a stop. He just got out of the car and he ran into the restaurant. And there were people inside a few people inside the restaurant. He runs inside and he starts crying, weeping and then telling them the whole story, you know, of the spooky car that came and

00:33:15--> 00:33:27

picked him up and about the car and all about the hand and all these things. So while he was telling the people the story, even they were getting spooked. They were getting scared. And at that point, the dose of the restaurant opened up.

00:33:28--> 00:33:48

The doors of the restaurant opened up and two fingers, the silhouette of two fingers were visible at the doorway. And then suddenly they were all looking at the two fingers. Two men came inside the restaurant. And then they said, Hey, wasn't he the one who got into the car whilst we were pushing the car.

00:33:53--> 00:34:19

So you see a times things can be just figments of our imagination. Most of the time. Sometimes you're at home you hear some creaking noise, it could be the the floorboards creaking at times you hear certain noises you think that or maybe it could be the rustling of the trees, you see a shadow it could just be the shadow of a brand. You're not a believer does not quickly give in to the fact that Oh, it has to be something to do with the gym. Because

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

it was set up a store has so many,

00:34:23--> 00:34:55

you know, measures to be taken for protection such as the occurrence of an event. You read the morning evening, I've got to go see the famous boy on the line who I think most of you are aware chiffon tried to steal from the beta male from the GM and then he ended up teaching above Rayleigh or the law of mind that if you read I could see in the evening the narration goes along the lines of these words. You get a bodyguard from Allah subhanho wa Taala What more do you want? You get a bodyguard from a loss. But

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

what is the president of the country calls you up and tells you my brother today

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

You my bodyguard my personal bodyguard 24 hours you have him with you How would you feel to get a wow I've got the President's bodyguard with me. But this Allah azza wa jal will appoint a bodyguard if you read it in the evening until morning, and if you read it in the morning until evening.

00:35:17--> 00:35:46

Amazing if you feel that your house is slightly affected reach local buffer according to the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam don't make your houses like graveyards, read suitable bacala and the devil will flee away from your house. If you can't read the whole of sort of the law, at least try to read portions of sort of rebusfarm the Shelton will just flee away from your house, many brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to look at the sooner Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:48--> 00:36:00

did not leave us groping in the dark is an alarm it was again he did not leave us groping in the dark. He taught us so many things from what he said a lot more than a lot.

00:36:02--> 00:36:17

But he brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to work on our hearts like I said we need to fill our hearts with taqwa as well as the worker. These are two main qualities of a big event as the last behind state to the number one many of

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

whom have Raja Zhu min high

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

dancing but one

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

more high school, the one who fears Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:36:37--> 00:37:01

He will make a way out for him from every problem wherever Zuko Mihai to lie. And he will provide for that individual from sources and imaginable love. Romania to work can add a lot of people who are high school and the one who relies on Allah, Allah is sufficient for that individual, the one who has the work good, Allah is sufficient for that individual.

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

But the brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to be content with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us. At times, we're not content, we're not happy with what Allah has given us. That's when we start looking at others harboring jealousy towards others. We envy others we hate others. We look at the houses of others, the vehicles of others and we start to envy them Allahu Akbar. Jealousy is a self destructive quality that is one of the spiritual maladies as well, that ruins the heart of an individual in an Hansa yet coolermaster not Kamata.

00:37:39--> 00:38:18

Indeed, jealousy destroys your good deeds just as how a fire baubles of firewood you know firewood in general it's dry, the minute you light it, it crackers and the fire goblins have the firewood. Just as how fire goblins of firewood. Jealousy destroys your good deeds. Why did you come for today's talk? Why do you go to the masjid for Serato Ravi, why are you fasting? Why are you doing all of these good deeds? You're doing it to please Allah subhanho wa Taala? What's the point of striving and doing so many good deeds and then sitting gossiping about others backbiting about others harboring jealousy, the feelings of jealousy towards others and ruining all of our good

00:38:18--> 00:38:51

deeds? What's the point? We need to work on our hearts if our hearts are pure, we will not have any jealous feelings towards others. We will not envy others we will only think good positive thoughts about others we will not think bad of others if we work on our hearts love. And the minute we are contented with what we have. We will be the most richest people on act. We need to be content with what we have. contentment is the greatest treasure. A man can achieve contentment. There was once a fisherman.

00:38:53--> 00:39:17

There was one sufficiently who used to go out every day to fish. And he used to come back. You know, whenever he had caught his fish. One day there was a very educated man at the harbor. And he saw this fisherman pulling his boat up by the dock. He goes to the man and he sees that his fish ship his little board is full of yellow fish, tuna.

00:39:18--> 00:39:23

Yellow, what is called yellow tuna, Yellowfin yellowfin tuna, okay.

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

He looks at the man and he says those are really nice fish that you have caught. How long did it take you to catch that fish? The man said a short while. It took me a short while I just went and I fish and I came. The man said really just a short while. So what do you do with the rest of the time that you had? The man said well, I take this fish and I go home. My wife cooks it for lunch perhaps and I spend quality time with my children with my wife. Later in the evening. I go down for a walk by my village. I meet my friends I make it to the mosque.

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

I pray, I'm free. And I'm also busy in a way, but I do everything very naturally and happy. The man said,

00:40:08--> 00:40:55

You are wasting your life. And the fisherman says Why? Why do you say so? I'm very happy. The man says, Look, I am an educated individual. I am. I hold an MBA, a master's degree in business administration from Harvard University, I can help you double triple your profit the way you're doing. So the fisherman curiously asked him, so how do you propose I do this, the the educated man, the NBA, he said, you know what I can help you. If you spend more time and if you can catch more fish, I can help you buy more boats, and then we can fish even more. And then gradually, you will fish so much that you won't have to sell to the middlemen, you will be able to sell to the main

00:40:55--> 00:41:36

processor. And on the long run, gradually, you will be able to open up your own cannery the place to you know, canned foods can fish and all of that. And then you will be able to sell fish in large numbers you'll be able to sell, you can start exporting as well. And then you won't be able to stay in this little village, you will have to move to a more grander place, maybe Singapore or maybe even America and settle down there. And you will live a very comfortable life and you will earn a lot of money. Then the man says that how long do you think this will take? The educated man says it will take about 2025 years give or take efficient and safe, okay. And then after that what a man says,

00:41:36--> 00:42:09

Well, after that comes the interesting part. Now your company would have established itself, you will be able to go ahead with an IPO Initial Public Offering and you will be able to sell your company to the public, and you will be able to make millions and millions of dollars. The fisherman the poor fisherman then asked the man and after that, what, then the educated man said, After that you can take all that money and you will be able to retire, go to a small village and you will be able to fish it will spend some quality time with your children. spend some quality time with your wife. And then you can go in the evening and meet your friends. And then you can go to the mosque

00:42:09--> 00:42:51

and pray. The fisherman said, Well, I'm doing all of that. Now. Why do I have to go through that process and come back to it? The educated man didn't have anything to say. So this is because the fisherman was content with what he had. He was happy he went everyday in the morning, caught a few fish came back he fed his family and he lived a happy, comfortable life. Why go through this big long process and end up again where you have to retire. It's absurd. So this is the thing we need to understand. And we need to be content with what we have contentment, like I said earlier is the greatest treasure a man can achieve. And the ayah that I just mentioned the minute we fear Allah

00:42:51--> 00:43:30

that we I mean we are conscious of Allah and the minute we bring in tawakkol by the brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah azza wa jal will provide for you from sources unimaginable. You will never imagine just as how the birds go out in the morning and come back in the evening with their bellies full. Allah subhanho wa Taala will provide for you allies to provide for you but then of course you have to take hold of the ASVAB you must try your level best armor the alarm language report website, that debacle is that you plant the seed, you must plant the seed you can't just go to the background I have to let the tree grow, let that fear go. No trees are going to grow. You need to plant the

00:43:30--> 00:43:53

seed and then place your tower Quran Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal will make the tree grow but you must plant the seed you must water it, you must fertilize it You must do all of that. And then you place your dog Quran Allah subhana wa sallam, Allah will look after the rest. I will mention one final story and then we'll wrap up inshallah Tada. There was once an individual by the name Hakeem and

00:43:54--> 00:44:38

he was a very righteous individual, a very righteous individual, his name was Harding. Some. So he was an individual who had mastered the concept of tawakkol. He had perfect reliance upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now one year, handyman of some decided decides to go on hikes. So he gathers some money for his expenditure during hikes as well as to leave that for his family. And he goes and tells his wife, as well as his children about his plan to go on hikes. He tells his wife, the minute he told his wife, his wife started shopping, how can you go and hide you are the breadwinner if you go who will look after us? Because in those days, my daughters and sisters in the staff unlike

00:44:38--> 00:45:00

today, we must get on a nice flight, flight over to America and finish our hygiene come back within within a month. In those days. It was a completely different procedure. They had to go for a very long period because they had to undertake ship journeys. Yeah, they had to cross the desert. And at times, the journey used to be so tiring and so difficult that

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

There was even a possibility that they would not return back to their homelands their mother lands. So this issue was also there. So the the wife of heartbeat was a little disturbed. And she says, If you leave us and go, who will look after us for such a long period, and she was very upset. So having felt very dejected, and he left the room because he was thinking, you know, I rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala. But why isn't my wife understanding and he leaves the room. And he leaves his house for the room. He had a little daughter, the little daughter comes running up to him and says, Father, why are you so worried? Why don't you go and have a loving look after us. We have trusted

00:45:39--> 00:46:19

Allah, you leave us and go on for your wingman hunt, allies, the budget and look after us hunting looks at the Lord and says How I wish your mother will say the same things. And then the daughter says, Look, I'll talk to mother and she goes and says she somehow convinces the mother. She the little daughter convinces the mother and then the mother that's hot his wife, she tells hearts, okay, fine, I thought about it. And you may go and hatch. So hunting was happy, his joy was you cannot limit his joy because he was going to go and visit the house of Allah Hi boys on. So he prepares whatever was necessary for his journey, as well as to leave behind for his family. Like I

00:46:19--> 00:46:59

said, our goal is not just to leave your family and go, that is not the work good. You must take the necessary measures and then place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he made adequate arrangement for the whole period of time that he was planning to go and then now Hatem leaves when hatched. But sadly, what happened was a family in the village, a drought, where they lost all of their crops, all of their televisions, and they were going through a very difficult period, the arrangements that happened had made all ran out. And they were now left without any food, without any food or provisions. Now the mother loses her temper, because the children will all study she

00:46:59--> 00:47:18

called the little daughter and she starts shouting at the little daughter, she tells her, she starts blaming her she turns It's all your fault. You said that Allah can provide for us and you made your father go on height. Now look at our situation, look it up like we are all hungry, we have no food, what are we to do?

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

While she was blaming the daughter and screaming at her, the little daughter starts to laugh.

00:47:25--> 00:47:59

The mother loses her and says Why are you laughing? Because it was kind of like aggravating the situation. She said my daughter, why are you laughing? What's so funny? The daughter said, Well, you know what's so funny mother is that you are blaming me and saying that? Why? We essentially place our trust in Allah lies of looking after us and you're talking about our father being the breadwinner. Why is in reality our father was never the breadwinner. Our father was. Our father was not a result of our father was never the provider rather he was

00:48:00--> 00:48:05

he was the one eating the risk. He was the one eating the risk. Allah is

00:48:06--> 00:48:16

is the one who was eating the risk has gone but reserve is still there. He will provide a Rosa is still there. Now while we were having this conversation, there was a knock at the door.

00:48:18--> 00:48:19

There was a knock at the door.

00:48:20--> 00:48:58

The mother goes and opens the door. Now let's talk about what was happening outside the house. The King of that city was passing by that particular village. And while he was passing the village, he had felt he had felt thirsty. So he sent one of his Armed Forces one of the soldiers to go and get him a cup of water. Now this soldier came and stumbled on the house of heart him and our son and he locks the door. So the wife opens the door and asks the man What do you want? The man says the king is passing by your village. And he requests for a cup of water. Can you please give me a cup of water? The mother says look at the island in India or starving here and the king has come to our

00:48:58--> 00:49:31

house to drink water. And anyway she gets a cup of water and she gives the soldier the soldier goes and gives it to the king. The king drinks the water. And now look at the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala no sooner he got down the water. He said what? A sweet cup of water. The water was so sweet and refreshing. So when did you get this water? The soldier said I got it from the house over there. The king said please call the owner out. I want to greet him and I want to thank him personally. The soldier now goes to the house again. And

00:49:33--> 00:49:41

the mother opens the door. Now what do you want? The soldier says the king is requesting the presence of the owner of this house because he wants to thank him personally.

00:49:42--> 00:50:00

The lady says the owner is not here. He has gone on hatch. Then the man the soldier asks the lady, the wife of hottie who is the owner anyway, the lady she says the owner his heart in his heart, the Milan song. The soldier now goes back to the king and he tells the

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

King, okay, the man has gone on Hajj the owner His name is hot the man. The king was astounded. He said hunting hot demand a song that a righteous individual, this is his house, Allahu Akbar, and he has gone in height, that it is my responsibility to look after his family until he returns back from Hajj. He gets off his horse, he goes to the caravan and he takes a sack full of gold coins. He goes by the House of Hartland, and it keeps it at the dough, then he looks at all of his ministers, because generally when a king goes, you have this Emperor is the whole, all the works basically all the VIPs rich people accompany right, they have an escort. So he looks at all of his friends, and he

00:50:41--> 00:51:10

tells them, if you all are truly my friends, then you will do just as how I am doing to respect this righteous individual. So all the ministers, all the righteous people, I'm sorry, all the individuals, all his friends, they went to the caravan. They all got sacks of gold of their own, and they went and kept it by the door of hygiene. And there was a little mountain by the door of housing. The king says no knock the door and you come off. The soldier goes and knocks the door.

00:51:11--> 00:51:46

And he comes off the lady, she opens the door, and gold coins cascade into the house. Gold Coins cascade into the house. The minute she saw all that gold, she started to laugh, she started to cry out of happiness. And she started to dance around with her children and she said we have enough gold to last for generations now. We have enough gold to last for generations. And she was now looking for that little daughter. That little daughter was seated in the corner and she was beeping she was crying.

00:51:49--> 00:52:08

The mother goes to the daughter and she asks My daughter is very strange when we were starving and when we were hungry, you were laughing. And now we are so happy we have got so much of wealth and we are all happy but you are crying Can you please explain why the daughter then said My dear mother,

00:52:10--> 00:52:44

Amir Muslim, Amir creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala In other words, the king who is nothing but a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala he looked at us with a little kindness and a little mercy, and we have enough wealth to last for generations. They just imagine if the King of all kings, Allah and surgeon, if he were to look at us with mercy, how blessed and how fortunate we would be we would be blessed in this world as well as the hereafter.
