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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa ala

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

nabina.

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

Muhammad

00:00:13--> 00:00:14

he was happy

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

with the sleep.

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

me

00:01:36--> 00:01:41

who is a creator sustainer nareesha protector and we ask about the

00:01:42--> 00:02:12

choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who would read up on his path without more sincerity until the day of our children. First and foremost I admonish myself and then all of your present here, let us introspect ourselves, let us examine ourselves, let us instill in our hearts the Praiseworthy trade of taqwa and that is to fear

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

Allah and to be conscious of

00:02:16--> 00:02:28

you in every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter. And we need to take extreme precaution that

00:02:30--> 00:02:42

we do not give in or entertain any thoughts of self righteousness, because this is from the quality of Shabbat and it also results in arrogance, pride.

00:02:43--> 00:02:55

minute we start becoming a little biased, a little righteous, we don't look down upon people in a condescending manner. He does not judge others that does not become judgmental.

00:02:57--> 00:03:14

He is the best of judges. We have no right whatsoever to judge anybody. It does not judge anyone that does not harbor any ill feelings towards our brothers and sisters. Let us not have that hate and anger. Let us not spread rumors

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

about people that does not feel jealous about others. Always think good about others.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

May Allah

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

make us all

00:03:30--> 00:04:05

respected elders and brothers in Islam. The topic for today is spiritual punctures and a few cures in regard to it. It is well known from time to time that our levels of faith begin to dwindle from time to time, our levels of faith began begin to drop. And this phenomenon of faith has become widespread amongst us Muslims, especially in this time and era. Many times we hear people say the scholars and saying

00:04:07--> 00:04:11

I don't know why but I just got this feeling in my heart as I feel

00:04:13--> 00:04:19

this vacuum in my heart, or my heart has become hard. I can no longer cry when I

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

do not have any effect on me. even scarier statements.

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

I have begun to question my faith. I don't understand. I find no joy in worshiping.

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

In reciting

00:04:48--> 00:04:58

Lindsey observe, worship and to Allah subhana wa Tada. These are all symptoms of a weak heart In other words, weak

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

weakness.

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

Mind spiritual functions are of two types, one, which is of a very serious nature. That is when the levels of Eman plummet to the level that we start questioning our faith in.

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

That is a very serious drop.

00:05:20--> 00:05:37

And if that were to happen to us, it is upon us to immediately make Toba and administer the man boosters that have been given to us in terms of the Quran and the advice from our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the other type of a spiritual functions when

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

they suddenly are dropped.

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

Because we feel a bit lazy, perhaps

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

optional. But then again, it does not make us

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

It does not make us leave the obligation

00:06:03--> 00:06:03

in our hearts

00:06:05--> 00:06:13

and brothers in Islam, it is upon us to administer the cures that have been taught to us by our beloved master Mohamed Salah Rama

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

and I'll do my best to touch on a few years in regard to boosting week

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

before moving on to something that I used to establish and that is, it is it is

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

in regard to the slaves of

00:06:47--> 00:06:56

the general public the levels of EMI, they rise and drop, there is a drop and then there is a rise This is normal, because there is it

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

is reported to have said and this particular study is recorded in

00:07:05--> 00:07:05

LA

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

along the lines of

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

an individual the fate of an individual

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

out in an individual's heart just as how close

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

how close

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

that he reviews your faith and rejuvenates your faith.

00:07:36--> 00:07:42

So from this Heidi we understand those things that can be derived from this beautiful statement of

00:07:45--> 00:07:54

the EMA they draw and they write they draw their eyes in regard to the amount of the profits

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

that the profits

00:08:01--> 00:08:09

even though they may look like they're sleeping, their eyes maybe knows, but their hearts are awake remembering Allah subhanho

00:08:13--> 00:08:22

wa sallam are constantly rising, rising, rising, they never they never on the other hand, the man of the angels

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

they do not rise and that is why they are

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

completely the commandments.

00:08:43--> 00:08:47

But on the other hand, none of us slaves

00:08:49--> 00:08:57

and the rise there is a very famous narration but once the narration goes along the lines of these words, we are once

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

he meets

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

and he asks

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

replies

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

has become

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

has become

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

such a statement Why are you saying that you have become

00:09:26--> 00:09:26

that hunger

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

explains.

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

Whenever we are

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

describes us and describes to us.

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

We are in front of it is as if we are in front of

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

us. Hi

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

ourselves in our day to day lives, when we occupy ourselves with our wives and our children, we begin to forget that.

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

And that's why I see two states, I'm in one state.

00:10:16--> 00:10:19

But then again, I'm in a different state when I go out,

00:10:20--> 00:10:24

find myself with my wife and my children. So, I feel that

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

the narration goes along the lines of these words.

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

I also feel the same thing, let us go

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

and inform him about this.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

and inform

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

them about this and

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

clarify, by the one in whose hands is my soul.

00:10:58--> 00:11:18

He says that, if you were to remain the same level of man that you are in when you are in my gatherings and if your levels of Eman do not draw it always, it is always going to be high on that level, the angels would come down and start greeting you they

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

would come home and greet you.

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

If you're

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

going to be in that stage the melodica would come down.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

But then on the other hand,

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

there is a time for that and there is a time for this. In other words,

00:11:49--> 00:12:06

back to the dounia. When you preoccupy yourself, in regard to your business in regard to your family, your wife and your children, then naturally the levels are going to deplete and are going to drop but then again you need to boost your Eman by coming back to

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

begin to rise again.

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

Rise and drop or drop and rise This is the norm in regard to

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

now swiftly moving on to a few cures for those of us whose

00:12:39--> 00:12:39

spiritual

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

has been punctured and repeating that vacuum, feeling deflated, feeling lazy or optional

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

of

00:12:53--> 00:12:59

feeling the weakness of the man then we are supposed to administer these particular cures.

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

Again, number one is to create a template on the reality of this life to contemplate on the reality of this life and to remember that and that is why there are many narrations

00:13:16--> 00:13:37

encourage us to go to the graveyards to accompany the dead the Legion be the greatest benefit that we get by going to the graveyard is that we remember that it is the greatest reminder of all for us. We remember we remember that and the minute we remember we realize how fake

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

life is

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

in terms of

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

occupying yourselves with your family and your children.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

As I always say we need to get our priorities straight. We need to get up

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

and running behind them. Yeah, as long as we do not forget

00:14:07--> 00:14:07

as long as

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

we need to

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

remember that. It would make us

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

it would make us

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

remember that we are supposed to meet.

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

recharge.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

rejuvenate

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

the second

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

is to ponder on the words.

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

Not to resign.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

You're not supposed to decide.

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

Rather you're supposed to resign

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

in such a way

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

You will try to understand, if you do not know Arabic

00:15:05--> 00:15:12

translation, you attend the discourses of the sea where you try to understand from the lips of the scholars

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

upon the authentic narrations

00:15:19--> 00:15:28

by understanding and giving a spirit when reciting, rather than just wild and empty.

00:15:29--> 00:15:36

It was all to make the Double of the Quran. There's many instances, many respected elders and brothers in Islam. If you look at the life of

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

Allah, there was one time

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

he kept on repeating one verse, just one verse

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

Hakimi.

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

And if you forgive them for

00:16:25--> 00:16:28

Hakeem, then you are all mighty, all wise, he is

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

repeating these words the whole night, until daybreak.

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

Look at the amount of pondering.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

He used to be an

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

instance.

00:17:08--> 00:17:08

This is

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

the look at the life of man.

00:17:28--> 00:17:43

Towards the latter stages, he was besieged in his house, the rebels had surrounded his house, and they were all going to barge in and assassinate him, he was assassinated with the most heart in his hand, he was martyred

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

in his hand and blood.

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

And then he also mentioned that when he was

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

the drops of blood, on the exact words,

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

he was

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

pondering on the words of our powerful maker. Therefore,

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

it does ponder on the words of a boss behind him.

00:18:38--> 00:18:44

Charging, recharging and rejuvenating levels of fame swiftly moving on to

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

the next one is seeking knowledge

00:18:50--> 00:19:13

is based upon knowledge. And it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to seek knowledge. And we live in a time where everything has been made easy for us, it has all been fascinated by us, we do not have to set out on long journeys on horseback or Canada or sea journeys to seek knowledge. Things have become so easy so fascinated for us today. We live in an

00:19:16--> 00:19:30

online Islamic universities, online courses where you can even seek knowledge from the comfort of your homes and your rooms. And if you use these opportunities, we will indeed

00:19:33--> 00:19:42

that will seek knowledge because the more you seek knowledge, naturally, knowledge mandates action, the minute you seek knowledge, you're prompted and encouraged to worship

00:19:43--> 00:19:54

in the most perfect of manners, resulting in the levels of demand raising. And the next, respected elders and brothers in Islam used to frequent the gatherings

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

where dialect is mentioned the words behind and what I mentioned.

00:20:03--> 00:20:07

I mentioned these are the gatherings of scholars.

00:20:09--> 00:20:14

And likewise, we should stay away from environments of safety, we should stay away from environments.

00:20:16--> 00:20:22

environments of business, we should keep the company of righteous people. The more we stick with righteous people, our

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

sinful people, they are going to naturally put us into the pit that they are in.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

Save us all. And let us also play and prepare ourselves for the day.

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

headed towards us at a very rapid pace that

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

you and I are going to stand up in front of us.

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

Every single is going to be put up there on display every single, every single state.

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

This is another one of the cures

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

and finally, respected elders and brothers.

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

Before it's too late, before it's too late, the minute you feel your email dropping.

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

I've said this before.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

He is waiting for us He will forgive

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

and revive your

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

data Forgive

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

me.

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

The opportunity man he got all of us the opportunity to talk to him before it's too late.

00:22:06--> 00:22:11

This afternoon, many of us in the gardens of gender with our beloved master
