Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan acquaints us with an understanding of the reason behind accepting and rejecting the guidance based on understanding the Quranic psychology. There are two basic entities – Al-Aql or intellect related to mind and Qalb-the Heart.

The intellect refers to understanding, thinking, reflecting, learning and recognizing and it’s always progressive irrespective of the age. The linguistic meaning of intellect is to tie up the emotions (lies in the heart) and restrain them. The other entity – the heart, its foremost quality is the remembrance of Allah, it also contains, fear, caution, love, ego, hate and all other forms of psychological diseases. But these qualities of the heart are not progressive, they move and fluctuate.

In the Noble Quran Allah has referred to the heart as a processor of information, particularly concerning emotions which attracts the attention to the relationship between the mind and the heart. Allah has made our heart clear, which recognize Him and His Sovereignty, that clearance of heart is called Fitrah’. But when this heart becomes ill with greed, jealousy, hatred, ego, and temptations it loses its Fitrah’. Our Fitrah’ wants to connect with the outside light that is Revelation but our Nafs won’t let this happen easily. The soul of every human being is submitted to Allah. But the desires of Nafs which resides in the heart makes him deviate from the right path.

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala CV mursaleen vada and he was happy

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

to be let him initiate on ology

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

in the focus sumati will be left alone you in the Hala iottie noodle and Bob Levine as a man of Guru Dan viologen will be him with a Corona ASMR SMRT will robina Mahabharata had about the lands of Chanukah, Kakinada, but not the subject that I want to share with you under these ions is actually related more so to IR that will be coming eventually sudo to note that we're going to be studying, but I wanted to at least have that covered ahead of time. Because it's a it's a central subject in Foreign Studies. And it really helps us understand some basic concepts about our understanding of psychology, a few, we'll just talk about Quranic psychology, if you will, if you wanted to coin that

00:00:52--> 00:01:33

term. It's a deep subject, and it requires a lot more in depth study. But this is sort of I'm trying to give you an overview of how Eliza describes, you know, the what's going on inside of ourselves in terms of decision making, and accepting guidance and rejecting guidance and just, you know, certain basic things. Of course, this this area of study, psychology is constantly advancing, we're learning more about ourselves through this study. And it's branched off into several areas. I mean, what used to be philosophy, the highest form of knowledge and human inquiry about himself, has now kind of switched over to psychology, whether it's behavioral or cognitive, or even a neurosciences or, you

00:01:33--> 00:01:55

know, people are studying social psychology and teen psychology and family psychology. And it's like, there's all these branch branches, women's psychology is branched off into so many subcategories. But as far as our faith is concerned, there are certain fundamentals that we should be aware of, that will help us understand ourselves and the world around us a little bit better. I think charlo Tyler, one of the faculties of law gave us is an aka

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

an aka the intellect. And the intellect has certain processes that Allah mentions in the Koran. And these are things like, you know,

00:02:07--> 00:02:12

understanding, right? understanding, I'll just put them in English, it's easier understanding,

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

thought, thinking, reflecting.

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

Obviously, thinking deeply would be reflecting, right? recognition,

00:02:29--> 00:02:30


00:02:35--> 00:02:39

among other things, learning, of course, big one.

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

These are processes of our mind.

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

Okay. The thing to note in Apple is,

00:02:48--> 00:02:57

it's something that advances meaning over time, it doesn't diminish except an old age, right? You start getting senile, and you start losing memory and things like that.

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

But fundamentally, Arcola is something that grows over time.

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

One of the main functions of the alcohol is also

00:03:10--> 00:03:21

of course, it comes with recognition. And it's under recognition release, I shouldn't even put it in a separate category, but to remember something is to recognize something you've seen before. Right? So in that sense, recognizing

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

now another entity, Allah talks a lot about inequalities and

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

so another entity, it's pretty epic drawing to

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

call this the heart, right.

00:03:37--> 00:03:46

Although it gives it certain qualities, certain things happen in the color. And the thing that he mentioned the most is, remembrance.

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

remembrance of Allah happens in the in the heart, fear.

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


00:03:59--> 00:04:01

love, hate.

00:04:08--> 00:04:16

All forms of diseases, psychological diseases, fee, Hulu be him. Maradona, right.

00:04:18--> 00:04:18

I love

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

Hulu, they couldn't call remembrance, right? Fear.

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

Then of course, caution.

00:04:29--> 00:04:41

If duckula finally come in duck wailuku. It is from the taqwa the caution the protection of the hearts a heart seek to protect, love and hate.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

Among other things, now these things unlike the intellect the intellect is constantly you're three years old and you're smarter when you're four and then five and then six, you're progressing. The club has certain things like remembrance Vicar. Fear, caution, love.

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

These things can increase, but they can also what they can also they fluctuate, they're not. They're not constantly evolving entities, they're fluctuating entities. And actually, interestingly, the word column itself literally means something that moves in fluctuates. So the things that are attributed to it themselves are also things that move and they fluctuate

00:05:20--> 00:05:30

to two different entities inside of ourselves. And both of them have a part in decision making. Both of them have a part in decision making.

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

Now just to help you or at least help expose the riddle here,

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

in sort of Baccarat we read

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

from Casa kulu buco, your hearts had become hard.

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

The IR right before ended ephedra tacky Loon.

00:05:50--> 00:06:07

Why don't you use your white alcohol. And the next, the rationale offered in the next year incapable of using the article because what's become hard, the hearts of the call has become hard. There's a relationship, they're not the same thing. But there is certainly a relationship between both of these things.

00:06:09--> 00:06:20

also understand the linguistic definition, not just these are chronic associations right in color. And these associations are made with the heart and the mind. But there is a there's a linguistic definition of alcohol also.

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

Our goal is to tie up your emotions to control them to restrain them. And then to be able to think, according to this picture, then where are the emotions.

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

Emotions are in the heart in the heart.

00:06:35--> 00:06:40

So if your heart isn't in order, you won't be able to think

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

it's actually going this way.

00:06:46--> 00:07:02

The decision is coming from the heart, and then the mind is accepting it. At the same time, however, there's two other processes that I didn't mention. I'm running out of space, well, I can do it here. I'll just put it here. And I'll make cool circles so that you can understand that they're different.

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

They look like glasses.

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

It's summer,

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

and Basile.

00:07:12--> 00:07:22

We use two things to understand think recognizably realize learn, what are the faculties by which we learn? It's two things. It's our hearing and our seeing

00:07:23--> 00:07:28

our mind processes, the data that we we hear and it processes the data that we see. Yes.

00:07:30--> 00:07:35

So in the case of Islam, a person hears the messenger sees the messenger.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

What he sees that information is taken up here, but this up here is not going to make the decision. Where's it going to go next?

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

It's gonna go to the heart and the heart says, Yeah, no, I'm afraid.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

I don't like it. I hate him.

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

I love I love what I'm doing already too much to change all everything.

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

The mind says, but it makes sense. This makes sense. It's good argument is good proof. No, I don't want it. Who has the final verdict, the harder the mind.

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


00:08:11--> 00:08:20

hard wins, or decides, and also your personal example. We'll just take some classic examples. I'll give you a personal example before we go on. And I erase all of this.

00:08:22--> 00:08:31

There is a young man who, you know, he is a teenager, he's very intelligent. He goes to high school, he takes a health class he learns about the harms of smoking.

00:08:32--> 00:08:58

And there's a whole chapter in his textbook dedicated to the you know, pictures of lungs that have deteriorated and all that kind of stuff, right? And all the research and everything, interviews of people that have smoked and gotten cancer and all that stuff. That same kid gets 100 in his class, very intelligent. So 200 question, multiple choice question questionnaire, and he gets 100. And after school, you see him outside Doing what? Smoking.

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

There's nothing wrong with his intellect.

00:09:04--> 00:09:19

There's, I mean, he understands if you ask him, what are the harms of smoking? He will rat them out to you more than you know. He's actually studied the issue. He knows it. He recognizes it understands it, he realizes it and he's learned it everything the mind can do is done.

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

What is the smoking come from them?

00:09:23--> 00:09:35

You tried to give him the data you can say it causes cancer. Look at the Surgeon General even gave a football on the side of the pack to let you know that you're going to die if you do this. Why are you doing it? He says What

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

are you here's the most common answer. I don't know.

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

I don't know.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

Meaning where does knowledge happen by the way?

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

I don't use my uncle for this one.

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

I don't know.

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

Where's it coming? Because I want to

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Isn't he was gonna is that what's gonna say in the end? I just want to okay.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Where does one come from?

00:10:05--> 00:10:12

Apple said you're gonna get cancer, you're gonna die. It's bad for you. It's gonna deteriorate your body, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Consciousness Kuhlman.

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

Okay. All your friends are doing no big deal.

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

Who won?

00:10:20--> 00:10:25

Oh one now let's take this stuff right same kid goes home. He's upstairs in his room smoking.

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

He sees his dad pull up into the driveway.

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

It's not the surgeon general who pulled up.

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

It's not his health teacher who pulled up. It's his dad who pulled up What did you do immediately?

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

flush it down. Air Freshener, take up a couple of minutes. Right? immediate action, immediate action.

00:10:51--> 00:10:55

All that knowledge doesn't help him change. What helped him change?

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

Where's the fear

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

in the heart? Heart said okay, now it's time.

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

Now it's time. Heart wins. Hard wins in the end.

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

Look at the famous story of you know, Abu Jamal, Abu Sufyan and

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

who used to go listen to our last messenger. So listen to me listen to her and secretly at night.

00:11:19--> 00:11:27

Three days in a row, they called each other fourth day on us. And I was like, yeah, this is the truth, man. Let's go talk to john and say, let's just, you know,

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

what do we do with this, which is of course it's the truth.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

But he's been harsh.

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

If we give him this battle, Hashem wins forever, we can't have that. I don't want them to win.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

I love my tribe to my tribe too much was that an intellectual response

00:11:52--> 00:11:52

came from the heart.

00:11:54--> 00:11:58

It came from the heart in the end. And by the way, it also works for

00:11:59--> 00:12:15

in a good direction too. In a good way also, but at least you at least have some understanding of the relationship between the heart and the mind and who's in the driver's seat even though they both have a role to play. Because the revelation we're processing it first in our article we're asked to think about it

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

rather than think about it now let's take a step further real quick.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

Let me erase all of this amazing stuff that I drew

00:12:25--> 00:12:25

I can't

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


00:12:37--> 00:12:41

No, I will not do a new document ever.

00:12:42--> 00:12:42


00:12:44--> 00:12:45

now I've got aka

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

I've got coil

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

and here comes

00:12:54--> 00:12:55


00:12:56--> 00:12:58

also called light

00:13:01--> 00:13:09

revenue revelations also called in the Koran light what means does my intellect process revelation what are the two doors that it goes through?

00:13:10--> 00:13:35

Hearing and seeing and hearing is highlighted more than seeing us God is mostly heard in a seminar called an algebra summit and awana right first me ruler who over and over again hearing so the analyst calls it light for Amina Bella he also de wire and Nutella DNS another light that we have sent down Put on his light Okay, so the mind processes it and take this light and goes where? To the coil. Now I'm going to draw

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

the heart for you this my epic drawing of a heart

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

and this heart has already desires in it or no

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

it does. Okay. It has greed.

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

It has jealousy.

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

It has anger.

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

It has anything else.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

Call it out.

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

I already felt greed. Hate Oh ego.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

Temptation. laziness.

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

Yes, all this stuff

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

is dirty.

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

It was when I was born it was clear like clear glass. I'm saying clear glass because Allah describes it as clear glass and

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

there's clear glass.

00:14:22--> 00:14:29

But as these temptations kept taking control, it started getting dirtier and dirtier and dirty. Now if a lamp

00:14:30--> 00:14:50

a lamp already has light inside or No. Yes. What if the lamp shade is completely dirty? Is any light able to come out? Any light able to go in? No, it's trapped. Okay, and if you cover it entirely what happens to a light like how you light a candle and you cover it completely goes out.

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

There is a light in here already.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

So we're dealing with two lights.

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

This light a person was born

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

With this light inside is called fitrah.

00:15:07--> 00:15:23

The light inside the heart that we're born with is called inquiry and it's called or in SWAMI terminology it's called fitrah. The messenger tells us Elisa to Salaam kulu mo luden EULA do lol. Petra every newborn is born upon the fifth law this natural decency this light

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

is already inside.

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

You can also possibly describe this as new.

00:15:33--> 00:15:36

You can possibly also describe this as our

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


00:15:41--> 00:15:42

Some things in their

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

speed of light, famous Hadith of the Prophet, Wilma Haleakala, who knew the first thing Allah created was my light.

00:15:50--> 00:15:55

prophesize my light referring to what? My rule my rule.

00:15:56--> 00:16:05

Angel Gabriel is also called rule. Yes, and angels are made of what? Light there's a correlation. Yes. So there's a light inside.

00:16:06--> 00:16:13

That light wants to come out. Now there are two lights there's the light of Revelation and there's a light of the fifth law.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

They really want to meet each other.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

The light inside has been looking for light outside.

00:16:20--> 00:16:54

It's been searching for Panama silica has about the lens of Hanukkah Kakinada Ravana and Nakamoto zeta who O'Malley volume 11 and so on. It's talking to the rub this light inside is talking to the rob you know why because it remembers that Rob from way back when his when it's Rob said alerts to be probably come from way back. This lingering in there there is a master now finally a messenger comes with what light and this inside light gets to meet that outside light that in the Quran is called neutron Allah.

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

What's that called?

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

light upon light neutron.

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

One light meets the other.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

It can only happen why when what's there.

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

What else has to be there

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

has to be an entrance.

00:17:13--> 00:17:25

The heart can be covered with filth. Otherwise, it'll never make its way in maybe when here. Maybe went into the mind but it never made its way into the heart. It just never affected a person.

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

They studied it for 20 years. They were a professor in

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

Quranic studies.

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

They knew it inside out they know more grammar of it than you'll ever know.

00:17:36--> 00:17:40

They know more than you'll ever know. All of it rested where

00:17:42--> 00:17:44

something was in the heart. I didn't let it come in.

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

Here's another crazy scenario. I'll draw another epic heart.

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

I left a little opening.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

So I came in.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

It came in and he goes Yes, this is the truth.

00:18:01--> 00:18:02


00:18:03--> 00:18:04

if I accept it,

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

my family won't like it. My friends won't like it. I will I don't know if I like it that much. So after it comes in you close up shop.

00:18:15--> 00:18:18

Now you already noticed the truth. But you're not going to let the light out.

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

You're gonna keep it inside buried inside. This is called a fear a barrier.

00:18:27--> 00:18:39

Caffeine literally means what? Someone who buries it well inside you let it in. You realize that light is meant light so you know it's the truth. Now what are you going to do not let it out. So cover it up this coffin.

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

This is the imagery of gopher.

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


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


00:18:48--> 00:18:56

what does the messenger come to do with By the way, just because you've accepted Islam? Does that mean you hardest clean?

00:18:59--> 00:19:09

Every piece every ayah is a piece of light. And this light if you allow it in has an additional power. Not only does it live inside your heart, it starts cleaning your heart.

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

You have to honor him it he wa

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

yuzaki when

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

it starts cleaning, cleaning what

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

cleaning what is the question? fundamentally the heart.

00:19:24--> 00:19:41

So it's cleaning it up, starts getting rid of other temptations. Other things and now that it's cleaned. Now you're ready, you're ready to properly use your mind for lessons where you IE Mohammed Al Qaeda was hacked by you Alamo to teach where this teaching happened. Our mind

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

that came later

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

is going to be cleaned up first.

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

When you are leaving.

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

That's not relevant if the hearts messed up. So far, so good. A little bit left.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

I'm going to erase this work.

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


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

stop playing games.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

I like doing that. Okay, stop

00:20:14--> 00:20:15


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


00:20:21--> 00:20:23

Let's talk a little bit about the knifes

00:20:25--> 00:20:30

a third term, we have fourth term, we have enough coil rule,

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

aka confused terms now.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

The nafs is basically

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

I guess you could call it your personality.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

That's the mystical term and dhokra on describing your personality.

00:20:54--> 00:21:11

The route is the amount of Allah it's the command of Allah. Yes. aluna Konya. ruhi, Julio romeyn Omri, Robbie, the command of Allah. The rule is already submitted to Allah even of the coffee. His rule has already submitted he denies his rule.

00:21:12--> 00:21:19

He denies his I guess, if you want to call it soul, he denies it when you just go for it. he buries it he kills it, he kills his fitrah

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

You know, that's why Allah calls their hearts dead.

00:21:23--> 00:21:33

When the fitrah has been killed, the heart is now dead. But let's talk about this enough sky. Allah azzawajal put things inside it certain things a lot put inside the human knifes

00:21:34--> 00:21:38

what are some things a lot put inside it a lot put desire.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

And he put guilt

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

for us to survive on the earth we needed to have desire.

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

Desire to eat, desire to build a house, desire to have a family to have children.

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

These desires are important for us because they are a part of how we live life.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

But these desires are like a horse and you're the writer.

00:22:11--> 00:22:17

And unless you have some kind of reins to yank at it, it'll go crazy.

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

Over crazy.

00:22:20--> 00:22:35

This knifes if it goes out of control, then it starts violating and by the way, this is all happening inside your heart still I can't draw it anymore. But your column has desires right I told you heart desires desires overlap now right? What else was inside your column?

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

already pre pre installed

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

there was light Hitler was already there.

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

What else was pre installed? desires?

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

The struggle between these two is your knifes

00:22:55--> 00:23:03

all happening where? Where's the battlefield? Your heart now? Every time your desires when who's hurt

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

your fertilizer

00:23:08--> 00:23:08

feels bad.

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

That's called guilt.

00:23:13--> 00:23:35

It's injured. You feel something? It's called enough's. Aloma. The overall state now is you are ashamed. Because something inside you is hurt to fit Oh, that's hurt to decency that's hurt. You insult somebody even if you're a non Muslim you insult somebody afterwards you feel a little better now. You do that you're fitted I injured.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

Your desire your anger

00:23:39--> 00:24:16

is one your lower self one and it took over now we can get rid of our desires because they're pre installed. Xena NASA hobo chahatein Anissa. He will win INVOKANA Evo kuntala Vanessa Habiba Baba hailu savall Animal House all that's already pre installed you can't get rid of it. You try to fight it you won't be able to Allah describes it in the Quran too. There are people who tried to fight it. We're not going to live by any any temptations anyone's lessons from Ah ha ha carry it ha they were not able to give it due courtesy as it deserves to be given they put to highest standard on themselves. It wasn't possible. They're there for natural reason, but you're supposed to keep them

00:24:16--> 00:24:17


00:24:18--> 00:24:41

What I'm saying is there are there are wants your enough's wants stuff your roof wants stuff and stuff and the cloud has to decide who gets what, at least to constantly negotiate between these two sides. This is what I'm going to give my I'm gonna let it you know enjoy this this this but I have to stop over here and I have to feed my idol. Now. Let's talk about your enough's. It is mostly concerned with your physical being.

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

Physical or worldly being this world needs, your faith is concerned with what

00:24:54--> 00:24:57

the the the the unseen,

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

in itself is from the unseen

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

When you do surgery inside a person, you won't find his federa

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

will find it

00:25:09--> 00:25:31

they might even attribute there's some parts of your brain that controls this temptation in that time you might even find something to the scene but in the unseen when it comes to our federa our love of Allah, I believe in Allah you can find that in the unseen and then weird sci fi shows will have like these radioactive transmitters. When a person is about to die, see if the needle goes up, see if they can find a soul or a ghost or something

00:25:32--> 00:25:44

from the unseen and from another entity Now if this nafs is a physical being, its food its wants what it wants, what it desires will come from where

00:25:46--> 00:26:02

the physical world it was beautiful clothing. come from here. It was delicious food it will come from here It wants a beautiful spouse it will come from here once a beautiful house it'll come from here. It wants a good drink. It will come from here. It wants entertainment it'll come from here everything it wants is here.

00:26:04--> 00:26:10

But Allah didn't just create us with enough he also created us with a rule the rule is not from here.

00:26:12--> 00:26:15

The rule has not for me it wasn't created in the belly of your mother.

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

The nurse was there

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

but what was installed from outside and inserted

00:26:23--> 00:26:28

the angel comes in delivers something from the unseen the roar it also gets hungry

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

it also needs to feed

00:26:32--> 00:26:39

but its food can come from the seen world because it itself does not belong to the seen world Where's its food gonna come from?

00:26:42--> 00:26:49

It came from above its food come from above. It was delivered by an angel. Its food must be delivered by angels.

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

What is this food if it's made of light?

00:26:55--> 00:26:58

Light revelation is its food.

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

Revelation is its food.

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

Reminder is supposed to be reminder from Revelation.

00:27:06--> 00:27:10

Reminder from Revelation every time is food for what?

00:27:11--> 00:27:18

No rule and so every time you eat you feel tranquil or know when you eat food. How's good.

00:27:19--> 00:27:23

Allah says Allah be decree law he taught my inner Hello Hello.

00:27:27--> 00:27:29

But he didn't say that my inner Allah

00:27:30--> 00:27:47

didn't say souls are tranquil. He said hearts are tranquil but inside our hearts there's more to the to the heart and the soul right? There's more happening in there. So you know what Allah did? In His mercy. He sent us a revelation that takes care of the needs of the rule. Yes.

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

But at the same time takes care of the needs of the

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

now here's what you can eat.

00:27:55--> 00:27:58

Here's what you can marry. Here's what you can do.

00:28:00--> 00:28:26

Enjoy travelled the earth ponder over the new all this stuff is for you Kala Kala Kumar fill out the Jimmy and I've created whatever is on the earth for you a few things have been made her on here a few things I want you to do is save your soul. Otherwise enjoy this earth. I create Uranus. I want to feed it to I don't want it to starve. I love balance both of those things in Revelation. And in both of those things, because you know, inside of myself there was a conflict. There was my nerves fighting against my role.

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

And chances are who's gonna win?

00:28:31--> 00:28:34

Who's gonna win? You know why? Because every everything around me is in the scene.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

You know how to say out of sight out of mind.

00:28:38--> 00:28:59

Right? If something's not being reinforced, you can think about it much. We're constantly being bombarded with the scene. So the soul will suffer, the roof will suffer. revelation comes and the love hunter regiment in our day where we cut ourselves off from the seen world. And all we see right in front of us and we concentrate and we try to revitalize our every single salaat

00:29:00--> 00:29:05

bring it back to life resuscitate, resuscitate, resuscitate, right.

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

That balance that we could never have achieved is achieved by revelation.

00:29:12--> 00:29:24

This is the Dean of balance in everything. There's balanced between relationship of men and women. I talk to you about that in the Fatiha between government and people between employer and employee. Right. There's always conflict

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

and there's also a conflict inside us.

00:29:28--> 00:29:45

You could easily put between body and soul that's the lame you know the the the common terminology of what's going on inside this is incredible. It's really and this struggle is happening when you tell me personally when is this struggle happening? Oh my god.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

All the time. All the time.

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

What are you in need of this food then?

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Allah Xena. Yes, Karuna la Ha. Piano worker Odin

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

While you know,

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

and they feed it, they feed the room enough with vigor.

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

And they just start seeing things differently. Its mind is no longer cluttered.

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

You just start seeing things and just says, Oh bonamassa la casa de Botton,

00:30:17--> 00:30:38

some Hanukkah, you're way too awesome for that Kakinada. Now, this conclusion happens. This is psychology from our point of view, chronic point of view. These are the entities inside of us. This helps us understand a lot of things, a lot of things. Somebody asked me how come people are so knowledgeable and they're still messed up.

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

Like, well, that's easy. Whereas knowledge

00:30:45--> 00:30:55

here, hopefully that knowledge helps down here. But if you're learning for the sake of learning, as opposed to learning for the sake of remembering,

00:30:57--> 00:31:02

if you're learning it to advance your understanding, that does not mean your heart is getting cleaner.

00:31:04--> 00:31:14

Your heart is getting cleaner when you're technically actually engaged in the act of Vicar and every time you do Vic an actual liquid. It's cleaning you out on the inside.

00:31:16--> 00:31:31

And so I told you what revelation does inside of our hearts. What does it do? It feeds to entities. It feeds on us, it gives it balance, and it gives all its food. Now tell you the last thing that the intellect does, I made reference to it before and I think you'll appreciate it more. What the revelation does.

00:31:32--> 00:31:35

It feeds the apple as much as it does the

00:31:37--> 00:31:43

the Apple has philosophical questions. It has logical questions. It has rational questions.

00:31:44--> 00:31:59

It has if then questions, it poses questions of intellectual value. The world doesn't have those questions. It already had the answer. But the moment it was created, the light was already inside the heart doesn't have questions the mind does.

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

Now the questions the mind asks can get twisted and weird. If what's already dead,

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

hearts already dead, then you can start asking strange questions, because it's no longer connected to the call. But if the call was intact, and unless asked valid questions,

00:32:16--> 00:32:22

and it wants to seek truth, it's something to put inside the fitrah. to want to seek truth, you know.

00:32:23--> 00:32:35

Now, because of that, we say our revelation doesn't just feed the culture, it also feeds the market. But it will only satisfy the needs of the person

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

who's what is already clean.

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

The scope still has an opening.

00:32:41--> 00:32:49

If the cold has no opening, this person will ask questions and get answers and ask more questions and get answers and ask more questions and get answers that will never help them.

00:32:50--> 00:32:59

Because what's really going on is something else. I'll leave you with a practical scenario. Really good friend of mine inshallah he'll be visiting as soon Professor Lucifer

00:33:01--> 00:33:22

talks to me about this all the time, because because he's a professor in college, all these college kids come to him that say, I no longer believe in God, I took a philosophy course. I can't reconcile faith with, you know, philosophy anymore, etc, etc, all the time. Or some kid takes like, you know, biology or something and, you know, evolution and this and that and my faith is messed up my face is challenge. And they'll sit down and talk to them and say so why don't you believe in God?

00:33:23--> 00:33:39

Explain it to me. Oh, you know, because if there was a god, how can bad things happen in the world? How can this How come there's a Hellfire, they have a few staple questions, atheists that they just they sound like they come up with new stuff. It's really the same stuff over and over again. This is okay, let's talk over lunch.

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

So talk to that person over lunch.

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

And instead of talking about the philosophical debate about belief in Gods and sounds like

00:33:48--> 00:34:01

we'll start with It's okay. But then after within 20 minutes, we'll open up and say, You know what, I lost my job. And this happened and this happened and this happened to us. So when your problems began? Do you think you started asking those questions when your problems began?

00:34:03--> 00:34:10

He was actually exactly around that time. He says this happened to me dozens of times already. dozens of times. What is hurt?

00:34:13--> 00:34:23

She left me he left me. My mother died. My father passed away I got diagnosed with something I lost my job. These things hurt what

00:34:24--> 00:34:25

the hardest part?

00:34:26--> 00:34:29

The hardest sides. I don't want to be grateful anymore.

00:34:31--> 00:34:48

When the heart is closed, the mind says Oh no. I was tied to ask valid questions. My you were you were chaining me to valid questions. I'm just cord is cut. Oh, I can ask everything if God created if God can do everything. Why can't you make a boulder that he can't lift himself?

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

I will ask that question now. Why because now my my my mind is cut from my heart. Now you cannot prove false philosophical or rational

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

Debate cannot prove the existence of a soul. It cannot prove the existence of enough.

00:35:06--> 00:35:09

But it doesn't have to be proven. You already know it's there.

00:35:11--> 00:35:16

It's a part you already know it's there, you know, you're not just a rational creature, you know, you don't do things based on emotion.

00:35:17--> 00:35:57

Modern studies, because there's a denial of the existence of the rule altogether. It's it's mumbo jumbo. Right? All this stuff is garbage, all of what we do should be somehow a product of what's physically inside us. So here's a pill that will help you become calm. Here's another that will, you know, generate certain emotions in you. And as a result of them, you'll feel you know, your anger will disappear, and your greed will go away. And this will go in that will go away. And then the new modern in a new trend in modern psychology is if you feel guilty, that's a problem. That's a flaw we have inside of us. A lot told us our guilt is actually a safety mechanism. Because our guilt is

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

telling us what's being injured.

00:36:01--> 00:36:08

What part of our hearts being injured with every time you feel guilt, or the psychologist or therapist tells you know, you shouldn't feel guilty you should feel good about yourself.

00:36:10--> 00:36:15

Do what feels good. Guilt is bad for you. Don't feel guilty. It's not good for you.

00:36:16--> 00:36:21

Kill Your Fedora, please, pay me $350 an hour and kill

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

two birds with one stone.

00:36:27--> 00:36:30

What gives life purpose? What part of us?

00:36:31--> 00:36:34

What's inside of us that remembers where we came from, therefore where we're headed.

00:36:36--> 00:36:39

cetera, you kill the federal What don't you have left?

00:36:41--> 00:36:49

You don't have directions left. And you have a direction left in life. Do you know some of the fathers of modern psychology? How twisted they were in their personal lives?

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

How many of them were suicidal?

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

You know, why is that?

00:36:57--> 00:36:59

Why is that you have to ask yourself

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

when that when that cord was cut

00:37:03--> 00:37:08

for Ansel home infosol. Allah made them forget themselves.

00:37:09--> 00:37:19

There was a part of them that they were cut off from they forgot who they what is their selves, their inner selves is what's in their hearts, but they're cut off from their own hearts. Those who forgot Allah, Allah made them forget themselves.

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

This is the picture of personality in the Quran.

00:37:25--> 00:37:33

And when we study the IOD they're supposed to help us in two ways they're supposed to broaden our minds. And they're supposed to be reminder that cleanses the cup.

00:37:34--> 00:37:40

You know, I know I told you I'll leave you I'll leave you with a shed shed is from hazama Busey. ragamala.

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

He says at the Nuba metal kulu kulu.

00:37:45--> 00:37:51

Where you refill diluted Manuka water Kenobi Hayato kulu kulu hyrulean Fc casiano

00:37:52--> 00:37:59

I saw that sins are I to Zulu by two meter colo I saw that since give Death to the heart.

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

Will you refund the beautiful deluded manha following it is that you only inheritance in your only inheritance for us humiliation? what are called newbie and abandoning sense Hayato kulu. What does he say?

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

brings life to the heart. The glass starts getting cleaned,

decontaminated while hydralie necessary. Sekai siano is better for your own self that you try to disobey your temptations your sins. If you're going to rebel rebel against sin, not against Allah just rebelled against sin itself. That's better for yourself. So Allah, save your heart.

00:38:34--> 00:39:06

That is the crux of what I wanted to share with you. It came up when we were doing the interview home personality. Well, that's what makes them so beautiful. You know, they cover both sides of the picture. But then show the full picture you'll see like I said in sort of nude, when we discuss the ayat in detail the parable Allah gives of the lamp inside a house, you know, then will appreciate this and it's fullbeauty. So inshallah we'll conclude here and we'll start sorting this out officially next week. A lot of Colonia leconfield Hakeem when I finally when it came, so Dominic, want to limit your questions.
