We praise Him, we seek his assistance and we seek His guidance, and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds.

My dear brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, I greet you with the greetings of peace Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi over a cat. Welcome to yet another episode in our short series titled, does care to neffs or purification of the soul and hamdulillah in our earlier episodes, we discussed the meanings of teskey or the

00:01:40--> 00:01:57

meanings of nefs, we discussed the definition of this gear to neffs. We've studied together the importance of studying this particular topic we've studied will enlighten the rulings pertaining to its study, and the views of the scholars and why they have the views and the chosen opinion,

00:01:59--> 00:02:41

which is the view of the majority. What have we also discussed the states of the neffs which is you and I, on the face of this earth before we pass away? May Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters forgive our sins. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us Jana, I mean, my dear brothers and sisters for this particular episode, I want to share with you all principles related to this key and the reason why I've introduced this particular portion is because many people write in and ask me, how do we bring a skier into our life? Some say how do we bring it into our household? Some say as teachers of schools, how do we bring it into our classroom? Some principals asked me how do I

00:02:41--> 00:03:33

bring it into my school, and members of the community asked about how to effect a purification process in community. So the questions vary in terms of places of application so the best way to answer all these questions is to provide principles that insha Allah, we can use to help us bring about effective positive change. These principles, which I call principles of Ezekiel, are principles related to descale take note of each principle, because each principle has a direct impact in terms of test gear, or the process of purification generally, coming about in our lives. Okay, this will never there will be smilla Hey, Mr. Ian, Robyn V with a beer and Marineland with

00:03:33--> 00:03:49

hamdu lillahi Leatherhead, Anna Elizabeth unhappy or Shabana we always start in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Principle number one, the first principle brothers and sisters in terms of this gear to neffs. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who purifies

00:03:50--> 00:04:02

we must understand this point, my dear brothers and sisters, it is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who purifies This is Principle number one, the purifier is Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

And if you note at the opening of our sessions, I mentioned that which was mentioned by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in particular, the statement that is translated as we have Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the land can misguide him and whoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon then men can guide him this is a very powerful statement, my dear brothers and sisters and everything in the Sharia is powerful it has it has an impact. It shouldn't be that we hear something and we truly don't understand the impact or implications of that particular thing. And I want to you know, bring it right to the most simple matter and that is the

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

Shahada, La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, a lot of us we know it, we know its meaning we recited but very rarely do we ponder over its implications and feel the implications of the kalama that we only worship one Allah. We

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

which really makes us in our everyday life.

00:05:04--> 00:05:46

Concentrate on our intention and making sure that we are living for Allah. And then we say Muhammad Rasulullah which should really allow us in our everyday life or force us and make us in our everyday life focus on exactly how we actually get into Allah subhanho wa Taala is it really upon the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because this is the reality of the Shahada that we recited insha Allah, we will come to this the point to note here is there are implications to matters it's it's not just you know, think we heard it, it's simple. Let's move on. There are implications we must stop at those implications and ask ourselves is this better and part of our life when Rasulullah

00:05:46--> 00:06:34

sallallahu alayhi wasallam says Mija Hila fala Moodle Allah, whoever Allah guides, none can misguide. Then from this, we must learn that test cannot happen just by ourselves. Rather, it's from Allah subhanho wa Taala and happens from Allah because Allah is the purifier This is the first principle. The purifier is Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book, belly Lao is a key Masha. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in another IRA while I can Allah use a key Masha, Allah subhanho wa Taala says it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who purifies whom He wills and it is Allah subhanho wa Taala in another part of his book says, instead it is Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:34--> 00:07:23

who purifies whom He wills This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says Robert is that he will gll Allah huddled in another area. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while Allah Fogg rula he was a hammer to who mesenchyme in coming ahead in a better, low Akbar. While our kin Allah use a key Masha, Allah who submit when any, this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says he says in Surah Surah number 21. And if it was not for the favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you, and if it was not for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you, not one of you would have been purified, not one of you would have become pure, ever 200 or better and Allah subhanho wa Taala does not say this is what I said and

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

timespan. Allah says there would never be a time where you would have become poor.

00:07:29--> 00:08:16

If it wasn't for Allah subhanho wa Taala making you pure. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well I can Allah use a key measure, but it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who purifies whom He wills Allah who Sameera Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the old hearing and the knowing in solitude is number seven. Allah subhanho wa Taala says all akinola have Baba in a common Amen. This is one then was a yeller who feel Hulu because this is two then what karura in a cuckoo for a while wonderful suka. Well, si en la casa, then Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Allah ik Houma Rashi Dune, fabula min Allah when Emma Allah who honeymoon Hakeem Allah subhanho wa Taala says, But Allah has endeared to

00:08:16--> 00:09:04

you the faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts and has made hateful to you disbelief and made hateful to you defiance and made hateful to you, disobedience and Allah subhanho wa Taala says For those that this falls upon, Allah says then these are the people that are considered the rightly guided May Allah subhanho wa Taala purify us. So brothers and sisters, this is a very major point here. Principle number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the purifying, we must understand this, no human being can purify us. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who purifies us, we do not purify ourselves in and of ourselves. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the purifier and I've shared with you

00:09:04--> 00:09:14

countless evidences and with this principle number two comes into focus. Principle number two, I have met

00:09:15--> 00:09:40

the importance of intensity. If Allah subhanho wa Taala is the purifier, then from the principles of Ischia is to make dua is to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for purification. We must have a portion of our day dedicated to this particular point where we ask Allah to purify us and it is at this juncture My dear brothers and sisters, that I

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

ask you to ask yourselves, how often in your day, do you ask Allah to purify?

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

My dear brothers and sisters, our pious predecessors used to say, if it was not for Allah, we would not have believed and if it was not from for us,

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

La subhanho wa Taala we would have not we would have not prayed, nor would we have fasted, nor would we have given charity Subhan Allah, Allah Allah, look how they attached all success to Allah and recognize that all success is from Allah, that they can boldly, in a boastful way say that if it wasn't for Allah, we would not have believed. If it wasn't for Allah, we would not have observed the many obedience is Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us to observe everything is in the hands of Allah subhanahu Wata our brothers and sisters, I'm not saying that we should sit back and not act because everything is in the hands of Allah, we should act and Allah will make the actions of our

00:10:44--> 00:11:24

end easy for us as totals by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But what I'm highlighting here is don't act and put your trust in your efforts. Put your trust in you actions act, but put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is from the most complete tawakkol and most complete way of putting one's trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. So take heed my dear brothers and sisters, for over this particular principle, the principle of do, we must ask Allah subhanho wa Taala this case from Allah, and it will not come into our life, except by looking after the second principle. And that is

00:11:25--> 00:11:39

do our and making dua and asking from Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that dua is the essence of worship. And he taught us that Du r is the weapon of a belief

00:11:41--> 00:12:09

how many of us make do our brothers and sisters? And how often do we make it and you know, what dedication do we give to our daughter? I think in some cases I'm not going to be stereo minded and say all cases in some cases if not many, many people don't observe the door and if they do observe the door then it's probably once a week or a few times a week and if they actually doing that then they're not diligent with it. They're rushing through it it becomes like a habit.

00:12:10--> 00:12:31

It's not that dedicated sitting with one feels that they begging from the one who is the king of kings and the owner of everything in creation and use of the Sealy bag and while it's you begging you have you practice another replied and owner's personal one which is having good hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah that Allah will give me what I'm asking for that Allah will answer what I'm requesting.

00:12:32--> 00:13:03

This is another very bad this is why do our entails compounded a bad? Because do i is bad? And if you did properly many acts of Riba come about as a result of it. So remember to my dear brothers and sisters and the champion of teskey Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, believe it or not, even though Allah forgave his past and future, he would ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to purify him. Allah Akbar Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say,

00:13:05--> 00:13:43

as reported in his Sunnah he would say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allahumma itfc taqwa was a Kia and the hieromonk he would say sallallahu alayhi wasallam all my Arab, purify myself, purify myself for you are the purifier. Right? And this is just a general translation. But the point to note here is that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this to teaching us brothers and sisters, the importance of the store. It's time for a quick break. inshallah, we will mature this discussion upon our return Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
