my brothers and sisters in shallow data Today we'll be talking about this treasure that all of us are looking for. Some have reached 20. And some have reached 40. And some are reached 60, and others even beyond 60. And they're still looking for this particular treasure. Some thought it was to be in married, so they got married. And some thought maybe that treasure is in getting, you know, businesses and wealth and whatnot, but they're still looking for this treasure, that treasure is happiness, how to be happy. I think we all agree here. despite our differences, we all want to be happy. I've traveled in so many places all over the world. I've never met a person who tells me said

00:02:40--> 00:03:03

I just want to be sad. I've never met that person. amongst us. There's some that are black and white and Senator Brown, some that are tall, some are short, and some that are wealthy and some that are poor, and some that are big, and some that are small. And we all differ in so many ways. But we all agree on one thing, we all want to be happy.

00:03:04--> 00:03:43

I used to drive a cab when I was back in the US going to school in San Francisco and I used to drive a part time you know driving a cab. And then sometimes on the weekends, maybe some of you, you know, had that job. Sometimes I used to pick up these kids, you know, on the weekends, you know, late at night and you will take them to clubs. So you would say no, I'm a cab driver, I just pick people up and drop them off. So you have these white, Caucasian penal kids, they know they they jump to your cabin, then the on the way to the clubs, you see them in all laughing and screaming and you know, rolling the windows down and go and putting their heads out and screaming out loud. And I think to

00:03:43--> 00:04:33

myself, they're happy. They're happy. And then I you know, by two, three o'clock in the morning, I drive by the same spot or I dropped them off the same kids I dropped off the same youngsters, those that were screaming unhappily and and laughing and whatnot are blowing up crying, fighting and then again, I think to myself, are they really happy? How do we define happiness? You have a person who may be so fortunate, who is Mashallah, driving the latest and greatest car has the latest and greatest phone all the greatest and latest house, his kids Mashallah goes to the best university than the best school yet you find that very same person. He's just a smaller and tinier than the eye

00:04:33--> 00:04:33

of a needle.

00:04:34--> 00:04:55

Likewise, you find another person who's not as fortunate. Maybe he does not drive the best and latest and greatest car, maybe does not live in the best house. Maybe he does not own the best car maybe does not own the best and latest phone yet you will find that his chest is as wide or even wider than the ocean

00:04:56--> 00:04:57


00:04:58--> 00:05:00

Then how do you define

00:05:00--> 00:05:01


00:05:02--> 00:05:09

00:16:38--> 00:17:03

world hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah salam NFlt, Assad was just talking about the keys to happiness. So another key to happiness my brothers and sisters is and I wonder, and sometimes I find it really hard to believe. How can a person who holds so much in his or her hearts holds so much graduates and animosity and an envy and hatred feel happy.

00:17:04--> 00:17:13

You have to cleanse your heart from the diseases and I call them the enemies of happiness. sad,

00:17:14--> 00:17:38

sad, the enemies of happiness, clean your heart from all types of of envy, of all types of graduates of all types of animosity and an enemy T and n whatever. All these are any poisonous things that you carry sometimes in your heart? You know, he said and she said and she did and he did and why this and why that and to the extent that some people today would

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

accuse him

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

of being unfair and just

00:17:45--> 00:17:53

lay out a B. B What did I do? So people? Yeah, it's not right. It's not fair. That Oh no, we're not

00:17:54--> 00:17:58

accusing Allah subhanho wa Taala of not being just not being fair.

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

The heart is sick.

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

This heart needs to be clean. If you want to be happy.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

You're malaria feral man. Oh

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

verse number 28. Though we all met a man Oh, man, oh,

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


00:18:20--> 00:18:41

Sunny day when your wealth the day when you when your family your loved ones will not be of benefit to you. Except that who comes to Allah with salema in Arabic means heart Sally cleaner, fewer serene, clean this heart You shall be happy.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

Mind yourself, focus on yourself on your think clearly communicate.

00:18:49--> 00:19:07

What you want to bother yourself with. Had he said she said what he did to me would focus on you, on yourself on your family on your loved ones. Clean your heart. There is something called a Disgaea buno that is key. The components of Ischia purification two things Leah,

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


00:19:09--> 00:19:27

Leah is clean, clean the heart first from all these sicknesses and poisonous you know, diseases of the heart and then beautify it. You know, when you have a cloth that's dirty, you're not going to put perfume on it to make it smell and look good. First you need to wash it

00:19:28--> 00:20:00

when she wash it or bad then put some perfume and some cologne or whatnot. Likewise, this heart We need to wash it cleans it bad in put some apples in it and was the musical of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the fall of loving one another is how we can purify our heart number I don't know what number I'm in. But another key to happiness. My brothers and sisters is helping one another, serving one another supporting one another as the Prophet Mohammed it says in the help narrated by our beloved mama when he was asked

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

Prophet was asked, Do you know the most helpful or the most beloved people in the sight of Allah, and the most beloved deed in the set of properties asking the Sahaba Do people know the most bit of people in the state of happiness a llama

00:20:15--> 00:20:19

is the most bit of deeds to Allah, Allah.

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

Then the Prophet says, the most beloved people in Allah, happiness in Allah and feminineness, the most bit of people to Allah are those who benefit others. And the most beloved deed in the sight of Allah, the Most Beautiful, mm, a smile, that you bring the joy that you bring in the face of your brother or sister, make them happy, you alleviate their pain, you pay their debt, whatever you could do to support them and the Prophet awesome says, Your Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he said some of it is more beloved to me to go in the service of my Muslim brother to serve Him then making it because in my image it for one month, I'd rather go and serve my brother Muslim, rather than

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

staying in my image and making it to care for one month, that's not helping one another and make you happy Quickly, quickly with other medical images looking at me another quickly inshallah Tada, two points quick.
