All praises are due to Allah.

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

Allah,

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

Allah,

00:03:37--> 00:04:10

Allah, Allah May Allah Allah May Allah, Allah May Allah Hakuna ahead, and peace and salutations be upon Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who said to rock to become more intimate to me he lent Alvin Luba de Aveda Kitab Allah He was suniti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I have left with you two things. And if you hold steadfast upon these two things upon them both, you will never ever become a stray.

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

These two things are the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the son of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:04:20--> 00:04:36

we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds, whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to guide the non kin misguided person and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrease

00:04:37--> 00:04:42

guidance upon or decrease with guidance upon the Nan can guide him

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

as to what follows.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

The first thing that I want to share with you all and we can place this under the ground rules for your attendance for this particular conference.

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

And that is the fact that you are all here first and foremost, to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is something that we need to make manifest within ourselves. We are not here to be entertained.

00:05:13--> 00:05:56

And yes, we are here to gain knowledge. And maybe that much needed focus, especially since we have the month of Ramadan in front of us. But before that we have to make manifests within ourselves that are sitting here is solely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are building our agenda by sitting here. No matter how warm it is, and how long you've been sitting. You need to motivate yourself through knowing that you are building your Paradise by you're sitting, you're worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Through you're setting, your scales of good deeds are becoming heavier because of your sitting. And for this to come into effect. We have to ensure that we have a sincere

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

intention.

00:05:59--> 00:06:46

After you've made clear that you're sitting is for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala then you may rely upon the fact that you are here to gain knowledge. And notice that I said then, and not. And so we're not here to worship Allah and gain knowledge. We're here to worship Allah then gain knowledge. This is something which we need to understand our servants of Allah. For Allah subhanho wa Taala said what Allah will your unlimited kumala that be God conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala will teach you may Allah subhanahu wa tada teachers may Allah subhanho wa Taala place this sitting on our skills of good deeds on the day of

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

the AMA. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala gather us in January in the same way he has gathered us here today.

00:06:52--> 00:07:16

The topic for this afternoon, if not evening, let me just check. It's still afternoon, the sunsets very late here, Mashallah. The topic for this afternoon is me, myself and I. And my dear brother, he has said that insha Allah, the topic or the title will become clearer once the talk goes on. But to be honest, I don't even have clarity regarding the topic.

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

If I asked you all that, what do you think would be discussed under something entitled Me, myself? And I What, what would you think? Does anybody have an answer?

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

Go ahead.

00:07:31--> 00:08:16

And Ania myself, myself, being selfish, right? putting myself forward? Well, when this topic was given to me, I didn't think of that I said, that will be the obvious approach, to go out there and tell people not to be selfish, to go out there and tell people to be giving, not to be proud to be humble, but this is something that we definitely have heard in several talks throughout our lives in numerous talks, and probably the message has been made manifest in some of the discussions we had with each other throughout the course of yesterday and today. So I thought of a different approach. And this thought came to me when I was reciting surah in nature.

00:08:17--> 00:09:09

And that's why I chose to start off today with pertinent verses that inshallah will make clear for us all we have and you have decided to take with this particular topic. Now note that we are discussing Muslims in the West, and we are speaking about flourishing and thriving etc. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, in Surah, and najem makes manifest a reality. And that reality is something which we know but we forget, is just like, when you driving on the motorway, you see the speed limit, isn't it? But they always after so many kilometres, they remind you what the speed limit is, right? As if you forgot, isn't it? So for example, in in Riyadh, for example, is 110 kilometres, and in

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

some stretches 120. So you pass it and you know, this is the speed limit. As long as I'm driving at this speed, I won't have any problems with the law. But after a few kilometers, they put up the sign again, and a few more kilometers, you put up the sign again and you think to yourself, Mashallah these people have a lot of money, a lot of metal, a lot of paint, and they know how to write numbers, isn't it, but in reality, what they doing is reminding you of something that you already know, because mankind through his or her norm becomes oblivious. So the issue is not forgetfulness, the issue is oblivion. Right. So what have we become oblivious about?

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

Well,

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

given the nature of the talk me myself and I, we know but we've

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

Become oblivious of the fact of servants of Allah, no children of Adam, that we will die alone.

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

And you will be in your grave alone.

00:10:13--> 00:10:33

And you will face the questioning that happens in the grave alone. And you will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of Burma alone, and you will bear the burden of your deeds alone. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will not make you

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

responsible for the sins of others.

00:10:38--> 00:11:24

Me, myself, and I can you see that? Can you see that? This is something which we know as servants of Allah. It's something which we know, but we become oblivious about. And this is manifest in the way that we live our lives today. We always worried about what the next person will think about us. If I do this, what will they say? How will I look? Isn't it we trying to appease the masses? We have forgotten that we have a responsibility in front of a living Rob Allah subhanho wa Taala we have a responsibility in front of him and we will answer for our actions. We will not be asked about somebody else's actions nor will they be asked about our actions.

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

So the question

00:11:28--> 00:11:34

why are we in a state of Libya? What has put us in this state where we have become

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

heedless.

00:11:39--> 00:11:46

With this understanding, heedless with regards to the reality of Allah subhanho wa Taala this hoffler

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

and Allah subhanho wa Taala in his book has warned us against hafla

00:11:53--> 00:12:39

in many places in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made manifest the evils of hoffler and reminded us time and time again to live our lives in a manner that we are not overcome by Rasul Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, If Torah by the nurse, he said boom, boom de la Timorese. ilaha illa. Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says that the coming of the hour is very close. If thurible Ines he said boom. The audit that each and every one of us will go through what Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of tm is very close. Well whom

00:12:41--> 00:12:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala says but they are in denial about it. Why? Because they are in a state of heedlessness that

00:12:49--> 00:13:18

they are in a state of heedlessness and Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the heat this one in his book as well. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says, All our bodies are in our hands, Johanna Kathy from Nina Genie while in Allah subhanho wa Taala says we have already created for the Hellfire, many from the jinn and the ins from mankind and the jinn. Who are they are La La home.

00:13:22--> 00:13:28

They have hearts, but they do not understand. While at home.

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

They have eyes, but they don't see all at home.

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

morona beha they have ears, but they don't hear

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

a cat and

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

they are like the

00:13:51--> 00:14:01

like the animals. Bell whom one man says no, they are worse than the animals. Who are they? Oh Allah, Allah,

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

aka whom ALLAH hafiz.

00:14:05--> 00:14:29

They are the heedless ones, those that know but are in oblivion La ilaha illa Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this. So Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us against these traits against being people who have eyes, but we are spiritually blind against being people who have ears, but we are spiritually Deaf against being people who have hearts.

00:14:30--> 00:14:45

But we are spiritually dead. And this is a fact of servants of Allah. The human self can be alive physically, but spiritually dead. And when we are spiritually dead, we fall into the state of heedlessness we fall into the state of oblivion.

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

Why is it that we find people say that we observe the five times daily Salah

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

we fast the month of Ramadan

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

but we are still inclined towards haram

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the salata, tenha annual fashion.

00:15:06--> 00:15:18

Allah subhanho wa Taala said that, indeed the Salah puts an end to that which is fascia, which is immortal will munkar and that which is disliked, by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:19--> 00:15:42

so I'm observing the Salah, but I'm still involved in transactions that are based on Riba, for example, I'm still finding myself making excuses to validate my transactions. I am bringing up my children contract, contradictory and in the contrary to that which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has shared with me and taught me

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

I am with my family in a manner that contradicts the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I observe the Salah.

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

I'm supposed to be away from the state, but why is it that I am in this state?

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

The next person says that I fast the month of Ramadan

00:16:03--> 00:16:19

and Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us that the month of Ramadan has been prescribed upon us so that we may attain taqwa, God consciousness, the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala piety. So why is it that we finished the month of Ramadan

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

and all we have

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

is that the scale is showing that we took ages less

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

well, some scales some people Mashallah they put on weight.

00:16:33--> 00:17:07

But the point that I'm trying to make is that we finished the month of Ramadan, and we haven't developed taqwa. We haven't developed God consciousness, look at the state of the believers on the day of read, and the harm that is being portrayed on the day of read one month of tarawih and 200 and pm Elaine and Dora and fasting and really connecting to our spiritual self, and the next day, it's all out the window. Why is that oh servants of Allah. This is because we have become, if I can call it so body worshipers of Allah,

00:17:08--> 00:17:12

body worshipers of Allah, not spiritual worshipers of Allah.

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

We read Salah with our bodies, without our hearts being engaged.

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

When we say Allahu Akbar, that Allah is greater

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

panela look at the wisdom Allahu Akbar.

00:17:30--> 00:18:11

That Allah is greater than everything else. It's not Allah is the Greatest, as most tranzact translations place it. Allah is the Greatest would be Allahu Akbar, this is Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater. Allah is greater than everything else that you are doing supposed to be doing and didn't do. Now you are in a state of solace in front of a lot of validity which Allah, Allah is greater than everything else. We say this Allahu Akbar, with our bodies, but not with our hearts. The spiritual self is not being engaged, thus the sweetness of the Salah is not being experienced. Right, and the results of the Salah is not being felt after the Salah is over. The same goes with

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

the month of Ramadan, we stay away from food, we stay away from drink.

00:18:17--> 00:18:31

But the heart is not fasting as the body fasts. And this is the reality. The spiritual self is not being engaged and insane is in a state of oblivion. Insane thus forgets

00:18:32--> 00:18:48

that there is a standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala by himself, he forgets that there are questions that need answering in the grave by himself, he forgets that he is the sole person responsible for his deeds on the day of pm.

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

So the question now must be asked that okay, you have presented to us a problem.

00:18:56--> 00:19:23

What is the solution? Right, we shouldn't be people who bring out problems only we should present solutions. And I've thought about this are servants of Allah. And I think that the solution to this and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is if we are able to answer two questions. If we can physically and spiritually answer two questions.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

inshallah this will be a means of us coming out of the state of Oblivion, and being in a state of reality and not heedlessness. So what are these two questions? The first question is, who are you? There is the first question, Who are you, oh, son of Adam. And the second question is, Why will you create it? These are the two questions I posed for you. Think about the answers to these questions for a moment are servants of Allah, Who are you? And why will you create it? Why

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

Should you ever be in a state of oblivion? It's because you haven't understood who you are, and haven't understood why you were created. So let's begin. Let's begin with the first question. Who are we are servants of Allah? Well, if we look at incense, we'll find that we are a body.

00:20:20--> 00:20:27

And unfortunately today we only think that we are a body, right, but we are other things as well. We are enough's.

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

We are a mind. We are a soul.

00:20:34--> 00:21:23

And we are at heart as well. We have five things a body, a neffs, a mind, a soul and the heart, La ilaha illa Allah. Let us tackle these things one by one, let us look at ourselves as a body because this is the most important aspect or it has become the most important aspect of insanity. We are too overwhelmed by our bodies, how we look we have become people of appearance. physically speaking and figuratively speaking, physically speaking, how we are perceived by others, in terms of when they look at us and our bodily features, and figuratively speaking, how we are perceived by others based on the actions that we do. If I'm a person who stands to uplift the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala,

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

or be seen as this.

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

I'll be looked at as that I'll be seen as somebody who

00:21:31--> 00:22:02

is too deep, for example. So this perception, we become engulfed with why our bodies will be seen in the wrong light. So if we thinking like this are servants of Allah, they know and understand that if you think that you are great with this body, understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah has created things which are greater than this body. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has praised those things. And Allah subhanho wa Taala brings our attention to it in his book for Allah subhanho wa Taala said for example, file

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

a bill

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

case kafer holyport ilaha illa Allah, Allah said, Have you not pondered over the eBill become a key for Julio caught and how it was created? What else?

00:22:27--> 00:22:36

k for roofie at Allah subhanho wa Taala brings our attention to the sky and how it has been made elevated to Pandora.

00:22:37--> 00:23:18

And like this, Allah subhanho wa Taala brings us down to earth, that Oh son of Adam, if you thought you were special because of your body, then no and understand that there are things greater than your body. In fact, when we look at the Quran, oh servants of Allah, we find that Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't praise the body for being a body. Yes, the body might be praised in terms of it being part of insane as Allah said, la casa de la cannon insane vs. Aqui Allah subhanho wa Taala praises his appearance, but not because it's a body but because it's insane. And remember, what we're doing now is discussing you as an insane and that you you as an insane are made up of five things.

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

But when Allah speaks about the body, he says,

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

or either or at home Georgie buka Mohan Subhana Allah,

00:23:31--> 00:24:16

Allah speaks about the body not in a praiseworthy manner when he speaks about the bodies of the Mona Hoon and the hypocrites. He says that when you see them, their bodies will amaze you supanova the bodies will amaze you. These are people of outside appearance. The hypocrites are people of outside appearance. They show you one thing but they internalize something else. Right? They only care about how you perceive them. And that's it Allah subhanho wa Taala brought our attention and focused on too rigid Boca Samui the bodies will amaze you. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding this body in the La La Jambo Isla de la isla semicon Wallach in Jambo illa kulu b Kumar

00:24:16--> 00:24:59

Malik La ilaha illAllah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't look at your outside appearance. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not concerned about your bodies. He said amigo Wallach can but Allah subhanho wa Taala looks at and is concerned about kulu become your hearts What are medicham and your deeds? So panoro be Allah Allah Subhana Allah Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala may cause people of better deeds and people of depth and substance. Because we see in the lot of shallowness May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So this is what the Sharia has taught us regarding our bodies or servants of Allah.

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

So, if you thought that you are everything because of your body, then no one understand that there are greater bodies that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created and that Allah subhanho wa Taala has praised. So, we are a body after that we are a

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

knifes

00:25:18--> 00:26:15

and understand this properly are servants of Allah. Because this neffs should make us understand how weak we are. This neffs is a faculty that is used to test the son of Adam. It is part of our makeup. We got to understand this, that we are a neffs and this knifes from the outset are servants of Allah and all children of Adam. My dear fathers, my dear brothers, my dear brothers and sisters, is a testing tool for us. It is enough set by default is inclined towards evil. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes this manifest in the Quran, when he mentioned the speech of the minister's wife after he tried to seduce use of Allah His Salah What did she say? She said Alma O'Barry ofc FC in

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

Salah.

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

Be soooo Illa Illa Rahim Allah be

00:26:27--> 00:27:14

she said I do not rip myself of blame. Indeed this neffs is inclined towards evil. A great inclination, a great inclination, by default, this knifes once all that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has warned us against and think why it is so difficult to offer for a cat of Salah. But it is possible for us to complete a 90 minute football match. Even if it goes into extra time is no problem. We'll be ready, isn't it, nobody needs to prepare us for for a carrot of Salah La ilaha illallah wa t isn't it? That's because of this neffs understand that you're not just a body, there's this neffs that also has a lot to say in your decisions a lot to say in what you do. So you are

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

enough.

00:27:17--> 00:28:00

And this neffs is inclined towards evil by default but Allah subhanho wa Taala for the one that's not in Oblivion, for the one that is not heatless Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned a stage of this knifes that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves, and that is the self reproaching pneus and the self reproaching neffs is attained when insane understanding understands that they are going to answer they're going to they are going to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they have to answer for the actions in the grave. And even though we know the answers to these questions in the grave, there is no guarantee that we will answer them. So Panama is not like a test in the dunya we

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

don't know the questions right. But with regards to the exam, that each and every one of us Melba save us all will take when we enter the grave. The questions are known. The problem is, even if you study the answers, there is no guarantee that you will answer those questions.

00:28:16--> 00:28:57

This is the reality. So a person who is not living in Oblivion, he gets hold of himself. He knows that he is answerable to a living Rob And because of that, he starts reproaching this enough's it's inclined towards music. He says law forbidden Riba law forbidden I rather stay away from the millions generated from Riba and interest and remain in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the heat of the fire of jahannam is greater than the coolness of financial standing and material well being isn't it? A person who is not in oblivion trains this neffs and this next becomes a nefs Alo worm

00:28:58--> 00:29:10

and Allah subhanho wa Taala takes a question by the knifes Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala only takes a possum by that which is praiseworthy, thus Allah subhanho wa Taala said

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

mobio mil

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

oc mubin, Neff, Sila

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

panavia, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

right. So, this is the knifes of a person who understands the reality of their being and understands the reality of the individuality. If I can say that, the reality of their individuality. So, when a person becomes a makes his next to that self reproaching stage, what happens after a struggle, the knifes becomes this necessary motif in this contentedness This is the third stage of the knifes, it becomes enough that

00:30:00--> 00:30:23

has difficulty watching a 90 minute football game but loves to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the last hour of the night, putting this forehead down for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a neffs that connects with Allah subhanho wa Taala within sujood and this is the neffs that Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out at the time of death for Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

a

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

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

Jerry Isla Rob big arrabiata

00:30:36--> 00:31:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out to this lefs at the time of death and says oh content, knifes energy real Arabic return to your Lord arrabiata Maria in a state whereby Allah is happy with you and you are happy with Allah subhana wa tada La ilaha illa Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst those that receive this message, when we breathe our last, I mean May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from among those that when the Angel of Death comes to us, the Angel of Death is accompanied with the angels from gentlemen. I mean, so after understanding that you are a body and you are enough's, when understand or servants of Allah, no children of Adam, that you are a mind as

00:31:20--> 00:32:07

well. And this mind is ajeeb It's amazing. For this is the aspect that differentiates us, between all the other creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala this mind makes us different from the rest of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala I remember when I recited to the verses about hoffa and heedlessness, Allah said they are like animals. No, Nay, they are worse than animals, isn't it? Because Allah has given you a mind. And with that mind, you still behave as the animals do. Yeah. kulula tomato tomahto cool and Amma narooma salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the disbelievers as those that eat a tomato in and relax and enjoy and play. When neuromas come at an

00:32:07--> 00:32:15

angle just like the animals do no purpose in life when neuromas and the Hellfire is lying in wait for them.

00:32:17--> 00:32:23

So this mind is a jeep and Allah subhanho wa Taala gives due diligence to this mind in the Quran.

00:32:25--> 00:32:53

When Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in the feeder, Timmy komiya Pilon, liko Miyata for karoun of Allah ta p rune of Allah the Quran in the feed Alec Allah I only knew her Allah subhanho wa Taala time and time again engages our mental intellect, our cognitive ability, Allah subhanho wa Taala is always addressing it, do you not think? Do you not ponder? Do you not remember indeed in these are Signs for those of understanding?

00:32:54--> 00:33:25

And they asked you Oh servant of Allah, we men of understanding for a person of understanding never ever ends up in heedlessness in a state of oblivion. So Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses this intellect. But it's a very interesting relationship between the knifes when the neffs is overpowering, and this intellect because the intellect has the ability to tell us what's right and what's wrong, but so many times we find ourselves going against what's mentally right.

00:33:27--> 00:33:28

For example,

00:33:29--> 00:33:36

we know mentally because of this intellectual ability, that smoking is harmful, right?

00:33:38--> 00:33:52

Isn't it? But then ask a person who does smoke. Why are you smoking when you know it is harmful? And the reality no matter what they say is the knifes they haven't taken a stronghold of the enough's.

00:33:53--> 00:34:09

Can you understand how complex we are as human beings? We just thought we were bodies. Now we've discussed three things. And now we even looking at the relationship of these things, how they work together. SubhanAllah how this neffs pushes one towards the disobedience of Allah even though you may know

00:34:10--> 00:34:29

that there are consequences. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So after understanding that you are a body and you are enough's, and you are in mind, the no servants of Allah, that you are a heart as well. Or before the heart, you are a soul. Let's give the heart for last.

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

You are a soul.

00:34:33--> 00:34:54

So what about the soul? Well, in all honesty, we don't know too much about the soul. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not teach us enough about the soul. Not because he missed out teaching us anything, but because it was the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we remain upon that which he left with us it was enough for us.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about the soul

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

And he waited before answering this question. And during his wait Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to him and Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Why is Luna

00:35:17--> 00:35:20

totally rude to me in Morocco ra B?

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

oT, Mina? Me Illa Pani Allah.

00:35:29--> 00:35:58

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered this question with a verse that they are asking you about the soul. Tell them that the soul is from the armor of Allah subhanho wa Taala the command and creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala WA, T to mineral mila kalila and I have not been taught things about it except a little bit, except a little bit. So what do we know about the solo servants of Allah? Oh, children of Adam.

00:35:59--> 00:36:10

Oh, one who might be in a state of oblivion? What do we know about this Neff about the soul, we know that the soul is removed from our bodies at the time of death.

00:36:12--> 00:36:17

And because of its removal, this body becomes useless.

00:36:18--> 00:36:28

At the beginning, we spoke about how we have become people centered around the body, right? appearance oriented people without this rule,

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

we just become a useless buddy. Because the solo servants of Allah stated by the lemma is the electricity of this body.

00:36:37--> 00:37:29

When the soul is in these eyes, see, these ears here? Our functions work just like this microphone, right? It's here. It's job description is to amplify my voice. If the electricity is cut, the same structure will be here. But my voice will not be amplified. Isn't it? That's an example. So this is the reality of the soul and know and understand the servants of Allah and our children of Adam, that this soul is removed at the time of sleep as well. Did you know that? Did we know this? Allah subhanho wa Taala removes the soul at the time of sleep La Ilaha Illa. And how do we sleep at night guaranteeing an awakening in the morning? Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. Allah subhanho wa

00:37:29--> 00:37:34

Taala forgive us Allah Subhana who Allah says, Allah who etowah

00:37:35--> 00:37:40

force Shana mabuti ha, oil Leti lamb Talmud female.

00:37:42--> 00:38:18

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that it is Allah who removes the soul at the time of death, and for the body that is not going to die at the time of sleep. It's upon Allah. And that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that when we wake up in the morning we say Alhamdulillah he levy ohana. But Adam is 10 our La La ilaha illAllah. Did we ever think of this? Oh people of understanding? Why do we wake up in the morning and say Praise be to Allah who gave us life after giving us death? And unto him is our ultimate return? Have we thought of this meaning. This is because of servants of Allah we are

00:38:20--> 00:38:37

in a stage of death, the lighter death when you sleep and that's why the allameh state that a person who passes away in the sleep, the difficulties of death is haft is much easier, is much easier because the sun is already lifted

00:38:39--> 00:38:42

impartiality when a person is asleep.

00:38:43--> 00:39:07

So this is the reality of our solo servants of Allah. With that we come to the heart. We come to the heart and the heart are servants of Allah is also amazing, in fact more amazing than our bodies and everything else. Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the heart in an amazing sentence when he said Allah in a little gesture the motto

00:39:08--> 00:39:36

when he said there is nothing about your body, except a mother a piece of flesh. Listen to this translation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't say that your body is a heart No he said there's nothing about your body is negating any importance to you yourself as a human being. Besides this hat, this is hot. Why? Because this is known as a stupid hacer la casa de modo de su su bl hausa

00:39:38--> 00:39:50

there is a focus being made in the context of the statement for those who are studying the Arabic language, either Sano Han Solo Helga Dooku. If this piece of flesh is in order,

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

the entire body will be in order way the first set that first said that it just had no clue. And if it's corrupt, then the entire body will be corrupt.

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

What is this piece of flesh? Oh Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is it? Allah wa here?

00:40:07--> 00:40:11

Indeed it is the heart Subhan Allah. And it's a fact.

00:40:12--> 00:40:30

Have we not seen those who've been addicted to music yesterday? And today when they listen to it? It's like bullets going into the ears. Have you not seen those people? They can't stand it. What changed in them? The state of the heart, the same person, the same weight? Isn't it the same appearance,

00:40:31--> 00:40:43

the same perception. But what changed was the heart. The heart changed and what was beloved yesterday become became hated today? Why? Because it's disliked by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:40:44--> 00:40:59

And this heart of servants of Allah, even though Yes, it is amazing. And we tend to lack giving attention to this heart, this heart becomes sick, it becomes physically sick. May Allah protect us from triple bypasses and, and the like.

00:41:00--> 00:41:02

But it also becomes spiritually sick.

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

It also becomes spiritually sick, some people are laughing. She didn't eat oily foods

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

and take your fish oils as well.

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

So this heart becomes spiritually sick.

00:41:16--> 00:41:29

And when your heart is physically sick, you need a doctor. Right? And when the heart is spiritually sick, it needs a doctor as well. But the problem is are servants of Allah. We don't realize that our hearts are sick.

00:41:30--> 00:41:48

The Imam is in the masjid teaching that which will be a cure for this heart and we walking out of the masjid for example. We don't know that this heart becomes sick. And the allameh have mentioned to us three sicknesses of the heart. The first one is more of a shock. The sickness of doubting

00:41:49--> 00:42:10

the sickness of doubting Subhan Allah how many students have we seen in the universities Muslims growing up doubting their Deen asking questions like if I pass when? Why should I be washing my forearms and my face and my hair and my feet? What's that got to do? With passing when it doesn't make sense? Isn't this doubt?

00:42:11--> 00:42:29

Isn't this doubt? halala when I heard this question, I was absolutely amazed and it became manifest to me the reality of maraca check. Somebody is touting Allah subhanho wa Taala doubting the Quran, doubting Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. These are things which shouldn't need to be, we don't need these things to be

00:42:31--> 00:42:41

mentally perceptive. We need to believe in it. This is the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the commander of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is more of a shock.

00:42:42--> 00:42:57

And then we have Murat, Allah hafla, which I've been speaking to you about, since the beginning of this talk, the sickness of being in this heedless state, in a state of Oblivion, a state that makes you forget the me and myself and the I.

00:42:59--> 00:43:46

That is murghab alhough law. And then there's more of a shower. And Martha Shahar is the mirage of the neffs. We spoke about benefits inclined towards evil. And when this knifes has a stronghold on yourself, it takes over this heart and this heart becomes inclined towards desires, it becomes inclined towards desires, you are only good for following your desires. You are at peace when you are engulfed and drowning in your desires. And when you are not you like a fish out of water, so panela this is what happens are servants of Allah? Can you understand who you are son of Adam? My question was understand who you are. Can we understand who we are? It's a very complex situation,

00:43:46--> 00:44:28

isn't it? It's a very complex well law he know and understand are servants of Allah and all children of Adam, that the place of eternal happiness is genuine. And the place of eternal disaster and destruction is the hellfire. We are in the dunya which is in between. This is a phase of testing. Things are not meant to be simple. If things are simple in your life, take stock of yourself possible and fusa comfortable and to her Sabu take an audit of yourself. If things are too simple for you. And you haven't mastered excellence in your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala shouldn't be simple if you even on the stage of a man you should be striving for. That's what you

00:44:28--> 00:44:51

will put on the on the face of this earth for you weren't put here to strive. Just to for savior of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when you ask Allah for Jenna ask him for Alfredo serrana isn't it? Ask him for the highest agent Jenna. When Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the book to you here he said, Yeah, you're here to Tabitha. Take this book

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

and run with it. So to say in colloquial terms, meaning don't just take it and sit with it be go take it with everything that you have been

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

The best Allah praises the competitors was Serbia una sabi ko Ola economical Robin, we read this so many times Soraka was Serbia, Serbia, the foreigners, the foreigners, Allah economic boon, they will be the closest ones. This is what we have been put on the face of this earth for sevens of Allah. If our lives are too simple take an audit and stock of ourselves. We are not meant to be comfortable. We are meant to be excellent. And excellence is achieved on the verge of destruction. Know that on the verge of destruction. When you feel everything is going to fall down away from you. That's where excellence is. Did you not hear when Allah subhanho wa Taala said in Surah Baqarah

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

am hasim anthologie Jana?

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

When am I method will levena mean publikum Allah says that do you think you will enter agenda

00:45:55--> 00:46:02

when you haven't taken account of the reality of those before you must set?

00:46:03--> 00:46:08

What bar raw or Zulu had a cooler Rasool well levena

00:46:09--> 00:46:16

Matanuska Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that, look at those before you must set

00:46:17--> 00:47:01

they were afflicted with trials and tribulations and difficulty, difficulty after difficulty. They were on the verge of destruction. They were basically saying matter and when is the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala coming up in Nasrallah hickory vs. the excellence. here Allah says, indeed the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala his clothes were on the verge of destruction. So panoply Allah Allah that's what we have been placed your servants of Allah. So know and understand you are a complex being, you are a person of depth. You have a daily battle with yourself with your enough's in keeping your heart in check in keeping your mind upon the teachings of the Quran. When Allah tells

00:47:01--> 00:47:07

you of Allah take a loan. This is who you are a servant of Allah, and oh, son of Adam, and a human being.

00:47:08--> 00:47:13

And when we've understood this, we need to understand the next question. And the next question is

00:47:16--> 00:47:17

Why will you create it?

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

Why will you create it?

00:47:21--> 00:47:42

So panela when we understand who we are as human beings, it might be daunting, isn't it? It becomes a law. What have I heard here? This is daunting. This is scary, right? Don't be scared of servant of Allah, understand why you were created. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes this manifest in his book where Allah subhanho wa Taala said

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

womma Hola, como tal gene.

00:47:48--> 00:47:59

In lallier, boo, Allah says we have there's nothing involved in the creation of mankind and Gene kind except that they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:48:01--> 00:48:01

Do mean,

00:48:03--> 00:48:12

may raise or Allah says we don't need from them we're not asking you for financial standing material well being sustenance. We are asking you to be fetus

00:48:13--> 00:48:39

panela in the law, whoever it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the reserve yesterday for those who attended in the one verse that I was supposed to relate to you and speak about I chose surah, Muzammil and the reason for that is I was going to discuss something else totally. But on my way from London to Birmingham, I was sitting with somebody who inshallah is going to be a great student of knowledge. And I was advising him,

00:48:40--> 00:49:29

that no servant of Allah, that just as you are preparing your documentation, the visa processes, the medical requirements to travel, these are preparations. Prepare yourself with the journey that you are going to take spiritually. don't concentrate on your body only start waking up for the head good for me later. illa canina said last night, Allah told His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before revealing to him this coal and oil and this heavy and weighty revelation. Allah said coming later in Laconia, prepare for it how by spending the night in prayer, Lucifer who are in postman who kalila half of the night, oh, little than half Jose de la he Oh, increase what actually parameter Tila and

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

And for those who are students of knowledge, and you are going to be propagators and invite us to Allah subhanho wa Taala and know that this obligation is upon us all as well. While law he it is not a privilege, it is a responsibility. Being a Muslim is not a privilege. It is. It is a privilege, but over and above being a privilege, it is a responsibility.

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

I've been asked to keep quiet.

00:50:02--> 00:50:05

No, no, not in so many words. Can I take five minutes?

00:50:07--> 00:50:12

It is a responsibility. You are a Muslim. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:50:13--> 00:50:20

Subhana Allah Listen to this. Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the best book,

00:50:21--> 00:51:06

using the best angel to have the best profit in the best language, on the best night, in the best month, in the best of all places. And in it Allah subhanho wa Taala declared you or servant of Allah, the best of our people, the best of all people. Why should you settle for anything less than best? Why should you be in a state of oblivion? Allah subhanho wa Taala does not deserve for us to be in a state of oblivion. Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded us to fear him the way he deserves to be feared to be God conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala the way he deserves to be remembered, may Allah subhanahu wa taala granted his understanding. So no one understand that you are an app.

00:51:06--> 00:51:38

You are a slave, a slave of who of man, the Most Merciful of Allah is that he will Jelena Allah heyoka her you have the best title anybody could hold one law he it is better than being called a leader. It is better than being called a king. You are a slave, but a slave of Allah in collusion, somehow it will out illa rushman after every everything in the heavens and the earth are nothing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala except a slave. Luckily for him.

00:51:40--> 00:52:02

And Allah subhanho wa Taala has taken an audit of everything in creation. So no one understand this or servants of Allah know and understand that you will stand in front of allow yourself Don't be in oblivion. Don't be in Don't be in diversity. Allah subhanho wa Taala ccja you and ness Mahara Kabira al Karim Allah, Allah Kaka for so work of idyllic Oh

Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala a Singh a yohannes or mankind what has put you in a deception of Allah, Who is Karim? Who is generous, He created you he fashioned you He gave us everything. How can we be in a state of oblivion? Make sure all servants of Allah, that we make a strong resolve not to be included in this verse when we read it in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala no and understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need us. We need Allah, our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala only benefits us and if Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted, he would get rid of us and bring a nation that lives their life in reality, not in oblivion. Allah subhanho wa Taala said

00:52:58--> 00:53:36

Allah, who deserves to be boastful says, Oh in San Antonio fukuro illallah you are poor. You are in poverty, you're a destitute with regards to Allah, Allah who ruin honey. Hamid and Allah subhanho wa Taala is honey, he is rich, he is able and Hamid and praiseworthy. Aisha use haber comb ytb Hello, God. And Allah says if you would, he would have wiped you out of the face of this earth and come with those who do what Allah subhanho wa Taala commands.

00:53:37--> 00:53:38

Nika.

00:53:39--> 00:53:45

Hibi azeez La ilaha illa Allah and Allah says, and that is not even difficult from

00:53:49--> 00:54:04

10 00 to ISRO hora, after Allah says that he says, and nobody will bear the burden of some somebody else. Remember I started with these verses Subhan Allah, Allah He I didn't intend to end with the verse, you just haven't.

00:54:05--> 00:54:19

Allah says you will not carry the burden of somebody else. So all servants of Allah, it's time for me to stop speaking. I leave you with this message. And I asked you to audit yourself, take account of yourself.

00:54:20--> 00:54:58

Become the true worship of Allah, the One that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about with his angels. He mentioned you by name, become that servant of Allah. It's not bad for us to say become a lawyer and don't become shaytan. Allah with an apostrophe s just in case people are wondering that What is he saying? Right? The servant of Allah and not servant of shavon you and Allah. Don't be in oblivion. Do what you have to do for the sake of Allah. Don't worry about what Mohammed is going to say and what Yusuf is going to say fast during the day, even if it's not the month of Ramadan. I know it's difficult. It's difficult because nobody else is fasting. Ramadan is easy because

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

everybody's fasting

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

It's hard to read Salah outside of Ramadan because nobody's reading Salah, but in Ramadan it's easy because everyone is reading Salah isn't it? It's hard to read Quran continuously out of Ramadan. But in Ramadan it's easy because everybody's doing it don't become a person that moves with the waves of the people become the strange one. Be the one that people look at you and say this guy is a jeep. He's fasting and everybody else isn't. He is reading salah and everybody else isn't be the strange one for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, For to ballyhoura and glad tidings upon. The strange one is a common law heroine Allah subhanho wa Taala except this from us, grant us the

understanding, we have a subhanho wa Taala forgive our sins, Grant as a reality. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us death while he's pleased with us. Grant has placed underneath his option the DFP ama and grant us general Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh Ali wasallam Subhana Allah will be having these manakala home where we have the commercial stuff recorded to be like with Santa Monica.

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

00:56:05--> 00:56:25
