Indeed, one of the most significant body parts that we have is none other than the heart. And this is why we see that people are always constantly in a physical manner, at the very least, in taking care of their hearts. We're always conscious of what we eat. We're always conscious of how much exercise we get. And we're always conscious, just of the physical well being of our hearts.
But little do we realize that the heart not only way plays a physical role in our lives, but a great spiritual one as well. And this is our topic of discussion today. It is the purification of the heart, it's important. And it means
it might be due to the restriction of time that we might not reach its means, but at the very least, I want to discuss the importance and some of its signs of sickness, as well, a well being
the heart in the Arabic language is called the fun. And the scholars say was suddenly elephant who needs to call up that the heart is called the heart, or the column in the Arabic language, due to its always fluctuating the albini Arabic language is something that fluctuates, and turns over from time to time. And this is the nature of the hearts in this dunya that our hearts are always changing, that there will be times where we like something, and then a couple of months later, we'll just make it like our houses, our cars, and anything else. You know, especially in the case of women, it seems to be their shoes, in every week, they need to buy a new pair of shoes because
they're unsatisfied with what they have. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala describes, the people have gender, when he says, Now you have a hoonah and
that the people of gender, they will not want any change, meaning that their hearts will be fixed upon what they like. And this is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala so the sickness, or the steadfastness of the hearts is actually a blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada. And the waving of the heart is actually a sort of trial and tribulation for the believer. And this is why it's very important to be careful about it. As for the role of the heart, and it's important, we know that on Yom Okayama, Allah subhanaw taala will ask us about each and every detail in the Quran. Allah subhana wa tada usually mentioned the most importance of things only though he only mentioned the
greater things that will be questionable. And Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran sort of a sort of in a semi well was horrible for the cooloola he can, can and who Masuda Allah subhana wa tada is saying that indeed, it is the hearing, and the sight and the heart, the hearing the sight and the heart. All of those three, would you be questionable. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us this diversity. We all know that we will be questioned about everything that we hear, whether it be music or whether it be whether it be the phrases of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or whether it be curses, above and beyond is here above that. So we will question about our hearing. And we know
we will be questioned about our sights, as Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Gina begins with the eyesight. Right? And we know that if we look at something good, we praise Allah subhanaw taala for it, and likewise, if we see something bad and he will, we should seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from it. Now that having been said, along with these two key aspects and two key things, the heart likewise we will be questioned about did we take care of our hearts, or did we leave it in a state of sickness. So that will bring about our own destruction.
Heart, just like any other part of the body can get sick. And this is not hidden from anyone. And we're not talking about a physical type of sickness, we'd rather a spiritual one, unless I know what the other talks about the hypocrisy of what I'm when he says to follow the meridian facade, the hormone level matoba while omega one and even V max and which the bone, Allah subhana wa Jalla says that indeed in their hearts is a disease and Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase that disease and they will be punished for that which they used to do.
The scholars of Sierra mentioned over here, that when Allah Subhana, Allah says that they will be punished for what they used to do, that is actually refers back to their hearts, that due to them, not taking care of their hearts, they will be punished. And again, we see the importance of purifying our hearts.
Likewise, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, Allah we're in natural justice, the motivation in follow her, follow her just a Dooku were infested. First Adela just as cuckoo, Allah,
Allah Spano, Allah Subhan, Allah His Messenger sallallahu Sallam has said that indeed, there is a morsel of flesh in the body, it is correct, and straight, then indeed, the whole body will be straight and rectified. And if it is, if it is diseased, and Ill, then indeed, the whole body will be diseased and,
and it is none other than the heart. So we see that the role of the heart not only plays in our spiritual well being as well, but affects our actions as well. And this is why you often hear people saying that
when they do something wrong, you don't know what's in my heart. Little do they realize that that which is in our heart is manifested in our actions. If you do not have a pure heart, your actions will not be pure. And likewise, if you're doing impure actions, they know that it is due to the impurity of your heart.
In Arabic, they often give a parable, that the heart is like the king, and the limbs of the body are like it's soldiers. That is the ruler is corrupt, then the soldiers will be corrupt. And if the ruler is straight, then the soldiers will be straight as well. And how to this is that if you think about it, in our times, today, look at the leaders
and the society that we live in, look at who is above us. If we have good leaders, then Allah Subhana Allah blesses the community, and the community becomes virtuous as well. But if our leaders are corrupt, then likewise it affects the community and affects society, not only in a societal, political, economical manner, but in all manners. And thus, if they are evil, then society becomes corrupt as well. And thus we see the importance once again.
As for the heart, it is the beginning or the source of our emotions. Our mind begins from our hearts and if our hearts are corrupt, likewise, this will bring about a deficiency in our email.
Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrates from the hadith of Abu huraira. In the Muslim head of international law is the female Emmanuel Abdel Fattah is the fame of Allah.
Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said that the man of the slave will not be upright and straight or it will not be rectified until his heart is rectified. So, the deficiencies we see in our email, the deficiencies we see in our suffer, these are all related to the diseases of the heart. So this is encouraged us even more to know what are the diseases that we have the ones hearts and how does one go about curing them for know for a fact that Allah subhanaw taala on human piano, he will not look at your appearances and he will not look at how much worse you have. And he will not look at how many children you have. And you will not look at how many houses you had or how big
they were, but rather he will look at your actions. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in the law Hello young little illa storyform once in a while, when I can young guru ila coleauxv from
Allah subhanaw taala on Yeoman pm will not look at one physical appearance, and nor will he look at what's worse, but rather he will look at one's heart and his actions. And again, we see a lesson just on the lohani was sent him emphasizing the relationship between one's hearts and their actions.
And that's why this excuse that people often use that you do not know what is in my heart is rendered null and void because had your heart even had your heart to be impure, you will not be doing such an evil action that you will need to make up these false excuses. So, again, this encourages even more to rectify our hearts because
Yo p ama when we are in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a beer and naked state, and all people are equal in front of Allah subhanaw taala. There will be no benevolence to them from their wealth from their position in society or anything else. But rather the only thing that will distinguish one another one of us from each other, each other is our demand and our support and our hearts and how pure they were, and our actions. These are the things that we need to keep in mind. And that's why we see that Allah subhanaw taala when he talks about yomo, Fiamma.
He says, Yeoman, no sorry, Yama, lions are well known whenever known in lemon as Allah will be called when studying Allah. Allah says that the day when work and children will be of no benefit, except for he who comes with a pure heart. Now can you imagine we spend our lives trying to gain worldly possessions, increasing our wealth, increasing our status in society, beautifying ourselves and all other things. But these short lives that we live 40 5060 100 years old tops,
did we take them to benefits? Did we take the time to prepare ourselves for Yamaha piano when we stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala and everything that we strive for in this dunya will be of no avail to us.
Brothers and sisters, it's time we took heed and took a moment to reflect upon the situation of our hearts.
Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has also mentioned a taqwa. hoonah a taco Hakuna. That taqwa is in the hearts. Software is in the heart. And as we know suffer in the Arabic language comes from Korea, and with fire waqia meaning to protect oneself, and we'll call your being a shield. And this is what's tougher is that self worth is protecting yourself from the rest of Allah subhana wa tada and protecting yourself from the hellfire. So if this is where your support begins, is it not? of the utmost relevance, that we take a moment to figure out how we fix our hearts? Indeed it is.
Likewise, we know that our examples as Muslims, were none other than the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and how does Allah subhanho wa Taala describe Ibrahim? How does Allah subhanho wa Taala describe Ibrahim? Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously tells him that indeed, Ibrahim and those who followed him was a great example. Right? So let us look at how Allah Subhana Allah describes him.
He says, his aura will be fun when selling that Ibrahim alayhi salam, how did he come to Allah subhanaw taala How did he turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a pure and clean hearts
and now look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the hood and describes the moon as a clean. How does Allah subhanho wa Taala describe the hearts. He says when he jars a shed to cassava. They are like rocks, or even harder than rocks. Now it is up to us to decide brothers and sisters. Which ones do we want to be like? Do we want to be like the prophets and messengers? Or do we want to be like those people whom Allah subhanaw taala has destined for the hellfire. The decision is ours.
The scholars in Islam they define or categorize the hearts into three categories. The first category is what they call the one selling or the heart which is pure from sickness and saves from sickness. And even if I am Rahim Allah which Allah He describes the pure hearts by saying
it is a heart that is cleansed from any desire that challenges what Allah subhanho wa Taala comments or disputes what he forbids. It is free from any impulses which contradicts his good and as a result, it is safeguarded from worshipping anything other than him.
And he seeks the judgment of almost messenger alone. It serves Allah subhanho wa Taala exclusively, willingly and lovingly with total reliance upon him and relating all matters to him in fear, hope and sincere dedication. When it loves, it loves for the sake of Allah. And when it hates, it hates for the sake of Allah. And when it gives, it gives for the sake of Allah and when it withholds it withholds for the sake of Allah. And then if no problem, Rahim Allah He ends off by saying
that none of this will suffice in saving the individual, that all these things we mentioned, none of it was a surprise to an individual and his salvation will be
Only in that which follows the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So, if nothing wrong Allah, he mentioned something very important over here. And what he is alluding to, is that, obviously the heart has a very, very great importance and the signs of impure and clean hearts are what she mentions over here, that it is safeguarded, from the worship of anything other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning that the fall which is Selim will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, it will turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And likewise, it will seek the judgments of no other other than alleged messengers so Lola haunting was similar. And as for the services of the heart, is love, its fear, its hope, it will be for none other than Allah Subhana hosana And
likewise, the heart which is selling will rely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala alone.
And when it loves, it loves for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And when it hates, it hates for his sake, I just want to take a moment and reflect on these two key things.
These are two human characteristics and two human emotions that each and every one of us has. We all love things, and we all dislike and hate things. Yet, what distinguishes a believer from the average Muslim and what distinguishes the Muslim from the non believer is the level of His love and hating for Allah subhanho wa Taala the true believer and the true Muslim, His love will be for Allah subhanho wa Taala and everything that he loves. So when Allah Subhana Allah, Allah loves good deeds and he loves the massages and he loves the making of Umrah and Hajj, thus the believer he will love these things. He will love the believers. He will love the massages, he will love all righteous
deeds. He will love the fasting of Ramadan and he will love anything that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas the hypocrites and the disbeliever he will dislike these things that he will not like to go for Hajj, he will not like the fact that Ramadan when time for Salah comes, he will complain Why do I have to pray? Why do I have to pray five times a day?
This is the state of the disbeliever in demonaco. So look at your level of love and hate for lots of animals.
And how much do you love those things that Allah subhana wa tada loves? And how often do you free ourselves from those things that Allah subhanaw taala hates? And look, what is your allegiance life is your allegiance from us upon which Allah and His messenger or is your allegiance for the world that you live in? Are the people that you work for, or the people who grants you your money. The successful individual will have his allegiance for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, and the destructive or destroyed individuals, his allegiance will be for anything else. And it is said in our times. It is very sad in our times, that when the Muslims are being attacked all over the world,
that we will find people who will side with those people who are attacking the Muslims. And you have to question that where does is their allegiance lies? Is it for Allah and His messenger and the Muslims? Or is it for their own worldly purposes? that whoever gives them the most money? And whoever gives them the most fame and most attention? Is that who their allegiance will be for? It's really, really sad when we witness such things. Especially when these are some of the representatives of Islam in our times
I think was sent out a slur.
So this is a good criteria to look at. Where do you stand in your Eman
in deciding where where your allegiance lies, and your love and hate for the sake of Allah subterminal signer and you will see that those relationships that you have, that involve these two key things, loving for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and hating for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they will be the most blessed ones. As we all know, a man will have a natural inclination towards his wife, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he married a couple of when two couples get married, Allah subhanaw taala places a natural affection and a natural serenity in the hearts of the two individuals.
Yet it is often that we find that
they separate or their hearts are not as united as they were in the beginning. And people often wonder why this is the answer to this is simple, that their love for one another was based upon something that wasn't meant to last forever. Our love for a girl or our for for our husbands or whatever the case may be is something which is partial and limited. It will not last forever if it is just based upon you know looks or and if it is just based upon how they produce
themselves and how they act. But that love which will last forever between the husband and the wife
will be that love which is based upon Allah Subhan Allah to Allah and His Messenger, that you love them, for the Salah, you love them for the cow, you love them for their soul, and then everything else, the looks and the wealth and the property and whatever else they may have is all secondary. And this is one of the key things, that when you find people who have marital problems, the first thing you should look at is what is their love line? What is the origin of their love, if the origin of their love is something which is limited, and is not infinite, like last time it was then like what is the love will be limited. But if your love is for something which is infinite, like for
Allah Subhana Allah, then likewise that love will become infinite as well.
And then it will call him Rahim Allah, he ends up by saying that all these key things that we mentioned, loving and hating for the sake of Allah, giving and withholding for the sake of Allah, none of this will be of any benefit.
Until he follows the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is another key aspect that our purification of the heart and how the purification of our souls should be done in a manner that is legislated by Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger. No one can come with anything into Islam and claim that it will purify our hearts, except that if it was good Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have guided us to it already.
We see from the Saudis or the Abu Dhabi, mentioned in the center with the merger,
that Abu Durga Puja hora de la Daniel, he says that Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't leave a bird that flaps its wings, except that he gave us knowledge of it. And also boozer. rajala Hassan, who is alluding to over here is that everything that we may need in this dunya in terms of knowledge, and everything that we will need to know in terms of good and bad, I was listening to some Aloha and he was set up, informed us of it. So no one has the right to come after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and claim something is good, except that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should have informed us of it. And no one has the rights to come after
the death of the Prophet sallallahu send them and say something is bad or evil, except that Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned against it. So likewise, after that, having been said, is it not obvious at all those messengers from Allah Hanyu send them would have informed us of those things which we need to purify our hearts. Indeed he would have. So there is no need to come with such innovative practices, like we see often people doing Whirling Dervishes, and bringing music and all sorts of other things, claiming that this will purify their hearts and souls, but rather the purification of your hearts and souls lies in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala like you
legislators, and likewise, it lies in the reading of the Quran and the recitation of the Quran and contemplating upon the Quran. And the purification of your hearts lies in following the Sunnah of the prophet of Allah.
So we mentioned previously, you can solo a lot, that is scholars divided the types of hearts into three, it comes down to law, that the first type of hearts, or the first category of the types of hearts is the heart, which is called Alban celene, the heart which is pure and clean, and saves from sicknesses. The second category of hearts is what they call a local Bhumi.
And the dead horse is the exact opposite of the Falcon selling. So all those characteristics that you mentioned, like his worshipping of other worshipping Allah subhanho, wa Taala, from the Palestinian, the dead hearts will worship other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And likewise, in terms of following the messengers of Allah, Allah will send them the dead heart will follow other than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. And in terms of loving and hating, it will love and hate farther than Allah subhanho wa Taala And likewise, in terms of giving and withholding, it will give in withhold for other than Allah subhana wa tada Abdullah Mubarak, the great Imam of the Serbian and
from the teachers of the amount of hanifa Rahim Allah Tada, he mentioned or I sunova to meet will follow Waka geotraces Dola is Manohar waterpoof dono be hired to follow waka loneliness because
Abdullah Mubarak, he says that I have seen the sins and how it deadens the heart.
And indeed, it is through the sense that loneliness and humiliation humiliation is guaranteed
and how delete
Sin is the life of the hearts. And it is better for your soul to disobeyed desires.
Now take a moment and contemplate upon how ability MOBOTIX is talking about the deadening of the hearts. He says, I saw sins and how it deadens the heart.
People always think that you know, the sins that we commit. They're very small and minute, and I'll eventually make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala. And unless I know what Allah will forgive me, and we think that is the end of the scenario, but rather, this is not the case. The sins that we commit, they leave marks in our hearts, and they affect everything that we do. And one of the more famous stories in history is that which took place with the mammoth chef era mahalo husana we know how great of an Imam Imam and Shakira Allahu taala was. And how much taqwa and fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala he had, he was renowned for it, and how one incident in his life affected his memory. He says,
suppose to a level here and so our history for our suddenly anatomical mouthy will call in and Elma neurons are neural la Hilario philosophy
that I complained to work here, and work here was a man and the teacher, his name was up on the giraffe. He died in the year 98. So the hero, so he says, I complained to work here, about my for memory. So he guided me off to the leading of sins. And he said to me, indeed, the knowledge of Allah is a light. And the light of Allah is not given to someone that sins.
So now, contemplate upon those moments, that when you're in Salah, and you can't remember the ayah that comes after it. and contemplate the moment when you're in Salah. And you cannot figure out, have you just pay Torah cash or have you faced purifies.
Think about all these moments and realize that a lot of the times it is due to the sins that you commit, that you are being punished and trivialities for the sins. So and this is how our sins dead in our hearts, and affects all aspects of our lives. They're not just, you know, restricted to punishment and reward from Allah subhanaw taala in the akhira, but rather, they affected the lives that we live in today. And this is what Abdullah Mubarak is saying that I've seen how the sins dead in the heart
and how they bring humiliation to those who embrace them, that those people who embark since Allah subhanho wa Taala will disgrace and humiliation. And this is why that you can often distinguish a believer from the non believer just by you know, a know that almost to find out what the other places are on their faces, that you'll be walking on the street. And you can distinguish a believer or non believer just by some of the characteristics. And even though he might not have all the characteristics in your heart, you're able to tell that this person is a believer. This Allah subhanaw taala allows the believers to distinguish one another. And it is due to the Buddha that
Allah subhanaw taala grants them this note and this is what Coronavirus is referring to over here, then those people who commit sins and constantly embark upon them, and do not turn to Allah subhanaw taala and repentance, then Allah subhanho wa Taala humiliates them and just squishes them and leaves a darkness not only upon their hearts, but upon their faces as well. And this is why when the likes of surround, were described, there's this described to have the darkest of faces. And likewise, in our times today, when you think about the future and the criminals in all these people who are interviewed who make music, and are into music, and make movies and all these other things, even
though they're often described with duty, it will just take a moment and reflect upon what they really look like. They are the ugliest and filthiest people on the planet just because of the sins that they constantly commit, and they will complete this off. And this is a great disease that one becomes heedless of his sins. Allah's messengers from a Mohan he was cinema said
in a minute either as numbers and when China's looked at when she called in China's looked at and soda when people wish that indeed when the believer commits a sin, it is like a dot that is planted upon his heart.
And if he makes Toba and repents to lots of panels that are less than that.is, relieved or removed, whereas in Zed azada, that if he continues and persists in his sin, then likewise, Allah subhana wa tada continues to place that black dot upon it.
And then Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ends of the Hudis by saying
that and this will continue to happen until his heart is totally encompassed and wrapped in this darkness and
Then he resets the iron so it's almost as if he can level or Ananda kulu became McCann we have Simone, Allah subhana wa tada says, and so Tomas officine name, but it is indeed that the hearts are rusted due to that which they used to do.
And it's actually a scary thought that the hearts become rusted. And what does that actually mean? When your heart becomes rusted? Not only does it prevent an individual from doing righteous deeds and become less physical in them, but rather it also prevents him from distinguishing between right and wrong.
Allah's messengers and the lohani will send them Nerys Fridays in a Muslim
where he sallallahu Sallam says, a literal personal holiday when his new Maha kathina stick rotary has annual toliara here.
So he says that righteousness is good morality and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about
solace messenger sallallahu Sallam is telling us that our righteousness is seen through our good character, that the more righteous a person along with is a burden. It should be seen through his character as well. That if you want to be from those true believers, not only should you be worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, but your character to that should be of that one which is soft and loving, caring and tender. And likewise, and that is righteousness, then how do we figure out what is wrong doing a lesson just on the lohani was set up gives us the criteria when he says that the wrongdoing is that which wavers in the heart. It is that which way was in the heart and you do not
want the people to find out about so now that heart which is sealed with blackness will it be able to distinguish between right and wrong color like Allah subhanaw taala says it will never be able to distinguish it. And this is why we see a lot of messengers from aloha to center emphasizing the importance of solids and Zima.
In describing Salatu Juma and its importance, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us that when a believer misses Salatu Juma the first time a black.or, a black
a blackness is placed upon his heart. And when he misses it a second time, more blackness is placed. And after he misses it a third time, then his blood the heart is totally black and to the degree where he is unable to distinguish between right and wrong. So you can see the importance of salata, Gemma over here, and the effect that it has, and people you know, it said that they were very lucky and digital in this matter, that we'll all we will often come for celestial Gemma, just as the Salah is about to begin over catching during the second after, or at the very least, will come halfway during the beginning.
From the blessings of colossal Juma The reason it's called Juma is from the Gema meaning that it brings the people together is on this very day that the community that we live in the Muslims that we live and associate and affiliate ourselves with, we all come together to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala out of necessity, you know, a lot will suggest a lot zohore after Muslim Nisha, you must be the people who message you might not but for Salatu Juma all the believers are here. So this is a blessing that Allah subhanho wa Taala places And likewise, the hauteville for Juma it serves as a reminder for the believers. And what is the purpose of this reminder it is to bring the believers
and the individuals back to Allah subhanaw taala. So now, when we miss out on these two key blessings, the first being with the Muslims and second being reminded of Allah subhana wa tada and his Deen Allah subhanho wa Taala places a blackness on the hearts of certain individual. And after the third time, his blood, His heart is totally engulfed in such blackness.
And this was the situation of the dead hearts. Now, as with the third type of hearts,
it is the heart which is sick, a heart which is sick, but which is not dead, meaning that it is the heart, which will commit to them. And we'll come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala from time to time, always struggling and fighting. And the state of the sick heart is obviously better than the state of the dead heart. Obviously, the dead heart, you're literally hopeless for its life once again. What are the secrets it can be cured and they're a means to it's secure. So know that those individuals who strive for the deen of Allah subhanaw taala with hardships, you know, you see an individual struggling to come to the masjid. You see an individual struggling to pray and to give
his Zakah and fasting Ramadan and struggling and going for Hajj. This individual is better in the sight of Allah
He who faces a trial in his Deen and just totally gives up that one day, you know, by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala, an individual didn't wake up. And then he goes, you know, Allah subhanaw taala was for me not to wake up for a lot of budget, I'm doomed. I'm not going to, you know, pray my Salah anymore unless he abandons the Salah. This is from Elizabeth of say fun. And it is upon an individual that even if he is struck with such a tribulation, where he misses one of his solos, or he intended to do something good, and he is permitted from it, that he should struggle and strive to do it again. And to try even harder, because it is a pawn who prevents you from doing good. And if
you notice from the tricks of say fun, is that the reason why he prevents you to do good is because he eventually wants you to lead up to that he wants you to worship other than Allah subhanaw taala. And this is when this way, if you notice the story of the beginning of shared, how did she begin from the time of I demand Easter lamb to the time of no honey sternum, Allah messengers in the lohani was sent him tells us that there was no shift that took place. And it was during the time of New Orleans Salaam. He mentioned 10 generations prior to arrival, that that is when she started, how did it start? Did you just start that, you know, people, they're like, hey, this man's richest, and
we'll just start worshipping him. No, it didn't start like that, but rather shape on him to the people. And he said, certain individuals in your community, they were righteous people, why don't you build statues of them, and build portraits and paintings of them, you know, so that they may be remembered. They were good people, and they deserve to be remembered. So the people were deceived. And they did as Satan told them. And then as time went on, Satan, played with the people's minds and hearts again, he's what he goes to them, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he loves the righteous people, and these people were righteous. So why don't you go to these people for your needs, and go
to the grave for your needs, and ask them through their closest Allah subhanaw taala to grant you what you need, and the people will go like this is a very good idea. So you see, that's how she found these people into committing shifts was not by leading them to share right away, but rather step by step. And this is why the believer needs to be very cautious in terms of his actions, that
if you do not want to be led into ship, you have to compile up your actions.
So each action that you will give up and believe me sit on will make you give up actions. This will lead you a step closer to completing sets. So those individuals who perform this interferes and give voluntary charity, these people are prevented are protecting themselves from the whispers and actions of Satan. Because they find when he makes to give something up, he makes you give it up bit by bit piece by piece. So if you have a lot of things stored up, then as a phone takes away from it, it will become harder for shape on himself. And this is why you see that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to perform our supererogatory prayers, that not only will
it benefit us on Yom opium, not only will it benefit us on Yom Okayama, in terms of it will fulfill the deficiencies that we had in our five daily prayers. But also, it protects us against Satan as well. That Imagine if Satan wants you to give up your prayer, who is it harder to get him to abandon his prayer, the one who when he wakes up for Salah in that night, he praises to sinners for budget, and then you produce a lot of budget, or the one who just pays this fall for budget and goes back to sleep.
Obviously, he's the one who pays for the lawn. And now think about the person who regularly waster for the hygiene and family. And then he praises to sinners. And then he praises for, and he does this on a regular basis. If Satan gets him to give yourself What is he giving? What will he get him to give up at the most to get up, get him to give up his stature. And family was the person who only pays as soon as then sit down we'll get him to customers. Now think about the person who only plays his father, what was shaped on get him to give up it will be his first and we know the importance of our forum salon. As well as messengers of Allah Hollywood cinema has told us it is the
distinguishing characteristic between a believer and a non believer, the Salah that the distinguishing thing between a believer and non believers is the law. So when someone comes to you, and he whispers to you, and he's like, you know, you slept really late, you're really tired.
You know, you can pray for your leader, pray for you when you get up. If this is your case, and you only pay your father, then know that you don't for disruption, because this battle will shake on you will more than likely lose.
Whereas that individual who has taqwa and he has that shield with his Sooners and his family and his voluntary charity, then at the most shaytaan at the very beginning, we'll get
You to give up the supererogatory things and you will get you to give up you're never in the office, but for him to get you to give up your photos will be very, very difficult. So we need to take heed of this brothers and sisters. So this is the state of the heart which is set. Now, we will take a 15 minute break Bismillah to Allah. And when we come back inshallah, we'll talk about the signs of a good heart and the signs of a disease heart. And then there's one disease in particular, which I would like to discuss, and we'll leave that for after the break. So right now it's 952. inshallah, let's say at 1007. We'll be back and sound kind of a lot more behind. Like I said, we're gonna go to
the lake or Santa Monica.
