the brothers and elders in Islam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:48

All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala. We seek the assistance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we seek guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We also seek refuge in our Academy where data from the evils of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds, whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon then men can misguide that person, and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrease misguidance upon then can guidance

00:02:49 --> 00:03:38

and peace and salutations be upon harmony prt laughs Salalah alayhi wa sallam are servants of Allah. And O Children of Adam. We witness yet again, another blessing from Allah subhana wa tada upon us. For Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah has decreed that we have good that we witness rather, yet another tumor, yet another Friday, this day, which our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and whenever we hear his name, you should say something a lover and he will send them because this act is from the rights of our beloved Prophet Muhammad, Allah and he said, this day as taught to us by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the day of read that Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted the

00:03:38 --> 00:04:00

believer in his or her week, just like how Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us to reads during the course of the year, he has granted us and read during the course of our week. In Sahih, Muslim there is a heavy related by avora the man and in it he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:04:01 --> 00:04:04

he ships yo Juma

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

Amina, what are

00:04:13 --> 00:04:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best day upon which the sun rises is the day of jumar. On this day I was accountable with Allah created at the writing center. And on this day, Allah subhanho wa Taala entered into paradise. And on this day, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah removed him from Paradise. And then he said that the coming of the hour will not happen except on the day of Juma, universal cannibal Allah grant us denbies is pleased with us. I mean,

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

all servants of Allah, I know Children of Adam. I started off this particular talk with as with a ad from Sudoku, honey, from Sudoku, howdy

00:05:00 --> 00:05:26

And the reason why I chose these particular is from Sula to head is because Allah subhana wa Taala in this ayah manifests very clearly the importance of one's heart, the importance of one's heart, for we are servants of Allah are five things, we are a body,

00:05:27 --> 00:06:17

we are a mind, we are a soul. We are a neffs. And we are a heart. Now, we don't have time to delve into all these five entities. However, we can discuss very briefly, and in a shallow manner, some information pertaining to the most important of these entities, and that is the heart. That is the heart because all sevens have a lot. And oh children of adding this heart is correct. When all the other entities are correct. And if this heart is corrupt, then all the other entities remain corrupt. And this is manifest in the statement of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said, Allah in the religious and

00:06:19 --> 00:06:25

in the middle just said he motiva is also had some challenges and you could say that

00:06:27 --> 00:06:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that there is nothing about your body, there is nothing about you adjusted, except one piece of flesh, except one piece of flesh. If this piece of flesh is correct, is healthy, is serene,

00:06:46 --> 00:07:09

then the entire adjustment will be in proper conduct, the entire adjustment will be healthy, correct, and a gentleman that deserves entry into gentlemen. However, if this piece of flesh is corrupt, then everything about this body will be corrupt. What did he say this piece of flesh was Allah.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

He said Indeed, it is the heart.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:39

We all know servants of Allah and all children of Adam, that we will die alone and we will go into the grave alone. And we will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And almost kind of Adana highlights the importance of this heart. He called the heart on the day of fear for oblast Kanagawa deriva says Yama, lay.

00:07:43 --> 00:08:27

Day of piano is a day in which no amount of wealth will assist and no number of children will assist you. But the only thing that will assist you, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes an exception in men atolla because Saleem, I was terrible at that essay is the only assistance you will have is meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala with a pure heart with a pure heart like a llama. So very clearly from this heavy and from this ayah we are aware of the importance of this house and in Surah

00:08:28 --> 00:09:01

Allah subhana wa tada says anomia needed leadin is it not time or as a time not come for the people of belief for the believers must pay who is addressing the believers? Allah subhana wa tada addresses different segments of society in Africa. And here Allah subhana wa tada is talking to the believers and say, as a time not come for the believers and tuckshop oolitic de la has a time to come for the hearts to fear of loss of

00:09:02 --> 00:09:08

not just raw fear, fear with knowledge. I didn't say hope is a question and culture.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:28

And the difference between Russia and hope is hope is rolling on in this room of fear when you fear something without money. But Harsha is when you have knowledge of something and you fear it. And evidence for this isn't the ayah in the Quran, we also can have over there that says

00:09:29 --> 00:09:37

in an extra law, I mean anybody can bring the true people of Russia who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala with money.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:51

So the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala attached the concept of Russia to the rule of law, this teaches us that this is not real fear but fear with knowledge. Muscle can avoid fantasies

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

and just shut up

00:09:56 --> 00:10:00

as a time would come for the people who believe that

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

The time had come for the hearts to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala with knowledge

00:10:06 --> 00:10:07

based on

00:10:08 --> 00:10:16

based on the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala one man shop and based on that which We have revealed in truth,

00:10:18 --> 00:10:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala and brings our attention to those who experience downfall in their lives. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One area who can lead in

00:10:30 --> 00:10:35

public, and don't be like those who received the book before he

00:10:36 --> 00:10:40

forgotten and he will admit that they became a victim of time.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:56

Focus at Punahou. And their hearts became harder. The hearts became hard. Look, Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us the recipe for down for the recipe for downfall of servants of Allah is a hot hot

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

is a hot, hot furball

00:11:02 --> 00:11:02


00:11:05 --> 00:11:39

and most of them were sinners, most of them were sinners. Allah subhanho wa Taala in fairness to the people of Musa in Surah two data when a must cannibal Adela commanded them to slaughter the Baba to slaughter the cow. And they went on a journey of asking questions that were not worth for. It was upon them to follow the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala not be mischievious but at the end, they did slaughter the animal. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

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


00:11:44 --> 00:11:50

by the darrick Vania ijarah oh I should do a SWOT

00:11:52 --> 00:12:23

analysis and after they almost disobeyed Allah, the hearts became hard. The hearts became hard, so hard that it was like a rock and Allah subhanho his name it was harder in Iraq Subhan Allah it was harder than a rock while Allah subhanho wa Taala says what he mean Alfie Zhao it Allah subhanho wa Taala starts discussed this discussing the types of rocks

00:12:26 --> 00:12:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala says what in the immediate future what level if I mean who will and

00:12:35 --> 00:12:43

who can who attend as is their hearts will harder the rocks because we have rocks that split a sangha and from them streams flow. So Pamela

00:12:45 --> 00:12:52

these hearts are harder. They are rocks that water comes out from as Allah subhanho wa Taala says after your Shaku

00:12:54 --> 00:13:08

Allah says and there are other rocks that burst open and water comes out from them. Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're in Amina Lana Amina Shatila and they are rocks that fall down because of the fear of Allah Subhana.

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


00:13:12 --> 00:13:50

and Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in Oblivion, regarding that which you do, understand the servant of Allah, the importance of this heart and understand the title of Adam, the importance of this heart for money. If you have a hard heart, you will spiral downwards, like the people before us because this heart when it becomes hardened, it is worse than a rock for a rock who fears Allah subhanho wa Taala and a rock worships Allah subhanho wa Taala. And from a rock there is benefit. But rest assured, there is no benefit from a hard heart. You have some kind of way to protect us. With this understanding.

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

We learn

00:13:53 --> 00:14:04

that our life in this world is not a static life. It's not static at all. It's a dynamic life. It's a life whereby we have moments

00:14:06 --> 00:14:56

of detachment from the dunya and the soft heart. And there are moments when the dounia grabs us and hardens our hearts. This understandable servant of Allah and oh child of Adam, that you are on a tiresome journey to Allah subhana wa tack. You are on a tiresome journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala for you to keep this hot saline and keep it soft and keep it attached to almost kind of weird data. It requires rigorous effort from yourself. I will also kind of later added describes us as in a compare different in a rock beaker can handle formula p you are on a journey to Allah, you are cultivating your way to Allah subhana wa. Just like those who toil in the farmlands, those who

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

practice agriculture. They are toiling it's difficult you

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

Under the hot sun, and they are using their tools to tell the land and also kind of a guy that describes our journey to him. Similar to those to those who toilet, we are toiling on our eternal span of winter, there are moments when this dunya is getting the better of us. Thus the heart becomes hardened, less be tapped, the eye does not tear. Thus the attachment to Allah subhanho wa Taala is felt slightly less less the sweetness of our Sadat sort of decreases. And I'm sure each and every one of us here can relate to what I'm saying. This is the result of our heart becoming hardened for by Allah that dounia hardens this heart, and that's where we are toiling to Allah. And

00:15:43 --> 00:16:12

that is why there is paradise in this the hellfire. You're not here to be in Jenna, Jenna is to come. And this is my agenda as well. jeganathan is to come. This is there, a place in between. This is a place that has moments of ease, and it has moments of difficulty. And there was nothing about our creation, except the amount of time that I wanted to see which one of us is best in deeds. And let me hand up Animoto and hire Leah blue.

00:16:14 --> 00:17:05

We will read just about and suitable and these are the opening act. So Allah subhanho data has created us to test us and see which one of us is more resilient in our resolve to become detached from this dunya to keep the dunya in our hands, and not in our heart to use the dunya as a means to an end and not an end. So Canada, so Canada, and I was kind of left us in vain, for he put us in the dunya. But he revealed books, he placed us in the dunya. But he said prophets to teach us how to survive the dunya. For as our pious predecessors set for life. If you were to marry this dunya, then understand that it will never be pleased until you gave up your deen as it's down

00:17:06 --> 00:17:32

until you gave up your Diem as it's done. So the MBR is massaged to a certain kingdom. And they taught us how to change the middle path, the middle way, the path whereby we don't read ourselves of the dunya because we are in need of it. Because this is the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala, but a middle way in that it doesn't overcome us. And we use it to our advantage to attain a better asset.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:38

Now, we don't have time to delve into the

00:17:39 --> 00:18:00

curriculum related to the purification of the soul. Right? We don't have time for that. However, however, for us to add some form of completion to the short talk, I will discuss in sha Allah time policing, one aspect that helps revive the heart and some aspects that help the heart death.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:10

So which one should we start with first? Let's start off with that which revives the heart, isn't it? In case times run out inshallah we've covered the more important when we

00:18:12 --> 00:18:23

are servants of Allah and or children of Adam. We recite it time and time again. And insula, two fatty how Allah subhanho wa Taala says, do

00:18:24 --> 00:18:43

what he can to stay here. We're here to study. We recite time and time again. You don't do we worship and You need to be consistent. This is what we recite to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But have we taken a moment to understand the economic Minister?

00:18:46 --> 00:18:55

The pious predecessors before us did, and thus compilations of books have been written, explaining what are in the Quran iya cannot be

00:18:57 --> 00:19:04

understood MSA yet the meanings of the entire Khurana president solo two factor and Sora two factor is present in Iraq.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:23

You alone do we worship and You alone do we seek assistance from so understand the servant of Allah and oh child of Adam, that the first step towards reviving His heart is rebirth is the worship of Allah azza wa jal

00:19:25 --> 00:19:29

referred to summit and let him get it one of you that one of you could live with.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:39

It is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala that adds resilience to this heart and makes it strong enough to overcome obstacles.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:47

So what is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala what is the worship of Allah to kind of

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49


00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

that the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala entails carrying out that which Allah has decreed worship was love.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:24

With love, two aspects to worship him with love La ilaha illAllah. Let's understand that if you love Allah, and don't worship Him, you haven't attained the station of rebound. It's not enough to love Allah. And you don't do that, which the one you love has commanded you to do.

00:20:25 --> 00:21:03

And in retrospect, it is not in a mood to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without loving him without loving. And this is the major problem today. Our evaluator has become an elder, our worship has become a norm. It is not worship filled with love, we stand up and observe Santa for the sake of observing Salah because it's something we've become accustomed to. And this is clearly manifest in the one who attains the who attends the Friday fail. If you visit him after, sir after dinner, and you tell him again, Kareem, my dear brother,

00:21:05 --> 00:21:21

are you attending tomorrow next week, you probably will become upset with you and say, of course I'll be attending next week. We will not like it, you. Right? And then if you pause for a moment and say, Would we be seeing you for selasa?

00:21:22 --> 00:21:25

He might say, inshallah MC door.

00:21:26 --> 00:21:33

Right. I'm sure you've heard this statement before. This is a result of worship happening was unplanned.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:52

And when worship happens without level servants of Allah, the fruits of this worship, which includes suffering, the heart is inadequate, is not present. Thus he worship Allah, but the heart still has difficulty crying. The hospital has difficulty being soft.

00:21:53 --> 00:21:58

Allah subhana wa tada says, about Salah In

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


00:22:03 --> 00:22:48

he will come indeed for that puts an end to immorality and that which Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes. But how many of us are constantly with our Salah, but we may be involved in Riba our transactions may be filled with that which is haram. Immediately. How many of us observe Salah, but our relationship with our parents needs revision? How many of us how many of us are consistent with our Salah? But we are not upon the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as in You certainly should be. And this is something that people ask but I'm upon my Salah, why am I in need? Well, the answer to that, or servant of Allah, and oh child of Adam, is that when you stand up for Salah, your

00:22:48 --> 00:23:05

body is standing up for your heart to somebody else, your body standing up for Salah Your heart is done with your body. The heart didn't do that, when your body did it. Thus you fail to experience the fruits of this event and the impact of this river.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:25

Now that you've understood, what the bad there is, understand or servant of Allah, that this be bad that can never be correct, except if two conditions are met, except if two conditions are met. And these two conditions are present in the caravan La Ilaha Illa la

00:23:27 --> 00:24:01

la vida loca Muhammad Rasulullah La la la la means there is no one worthy of worship besides Allah, which entails is last and sincerity. Your Worship should solely be for the sake of Allah, animal attack solely for the sake of Allah, not for anybody else, not for any name, not for any game and not for anything, we have some kind of water protectors. The topic of this class is an old one. And once again, this is not the appropriate time to discuss it because we are discussing the heart.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:06

If we had more time, the first factor we would discuss is influence.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:15

So our worship should solely be for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If it's not, it's null and void.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:21

The second condition is in Mohammed Rasulullah affirming that Mohammed Salah

00:24:22 --> 00:24:44

is the final messenger is the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you affirm that there is talk, now we want to walk, isn't it? What do they say? walk the talk, right? So how do you walk that talk, you walk that talk by not worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala except upon the teachings of somebody.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

That is the second. So if somebody says, I want to observe Salah with sincerity for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and so that is good. So Jude is beloved to Allah.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:06

So I will observe selected federal estate accounts, three units of prayer. What do we say to that person?

00:25:07 --> 00:25:24

Your event is null and void. Yes, you love Allah. Yes to do this good. Yes, it's done solely for the sake of Allah, but we did it against the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Allah wants you to worship him how he wants you to actually live not how you want to worship. Is that clear?

00:25:26 --> 00:26:05

And in retrospect, if somebody says, Well Ronnie, I will observe Salah according to the teachings on karma sallallahu alayhi wa sallam however, however, I will need to please my parents, for example, to please my parents, in that case, we say your evaluator is now avoid as well, why you have failed to meet an important condition for silence. So, there are two conditions and these conditions are found in La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, then understand the servant of Allah, and oh child of Adam, that there are three pillars to worship. There are three pillars to Asher.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:36

The most important of which is that which we spoke about earlier, loving Allah Subhana. worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala with love. The second pillar is hope that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, hoping in the prize that Allah some kind of Western asset for us. And the third pillar is fear, that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, fearing the punishment, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has warned the transgressors do we see that?

00:26:37 --> 00:26:52

The Roma described it as a dark, think of a dove was the Body Of This Death being love, and the two wings being fear and hope that you remain level of balance and you move towards Allah Subhana.

00:26:56 --> 00:27:35

Allah has been established and that information is dynamic and parallel. I wish I had time and time and time to sit with you all and delve into these particulars. But at the end of the day, are servants of Allah, the right of knowledge is to practice on that knowledge. So even in the short 20 minutes or 25 minutes that we've set together, if you practice on the letter that has been said that you've done due diligence and you've given knowledge, it's helped and instruct because that is the flow of knowledge to practice with the help of this Deen is to learn and the help of this knowledge is to practice and the help of the practice is to be sincere

00:27:37 --> 00:27:43

is to be sincere. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the understanding. We have a couple of minutes

00:27:45 --> 00:28:20

or 30 minutes. Let us talk a little bit about that which kills the hearts. Well, my dear brothers and mighty fathers understand that there are many factors that kill the heart. But let me share with you something which they will have put together, have packaged together. Why? Because through experience in their dealings with majority of mankind, they have seen this to be the major problem. They have said that the main killers of the heart are number one,

00:28:21 --> 00:28:21


00:28:23 --> 00:28:24

over eating.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:27

Number two, over speaking,

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

speaking more than is required. Number three, unrestrained glances, and restraint, unrestrained glances. And we're not talking only about not only our gaze will be in front of a member of the opposite gender, we're talking about looking at this dimia was an unrestrained will we look at it in such a way that our that the love that this is what is being seen becomes imprinted on the heart.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:18

There is an unrestrained gap, where you fail to recognize a massive hangover data in this beautiful matter that you have seen. Be it a vehicle being it, the sun, being it in the moon, being it a sinner, you look at it, and you fail to recognize I was in debt, that look

00:29:20 --> 00:29:59

hardens the heart, we have some kind of water protectors. And the fourth thing that they've said, is having evil friends having evil friends very quickly. We do represent elders, anything in excess. Anything in excess has counterproductive results. The net result of being excess is counter productivity retrogression. That is the net result of being excess. If you oversleep, it's bad for you. If you overeat, it's bad for you. We need food but it is limit we need to speak but it is limits we need to sleep but it is limits Subhan Allah subhana wa to start

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

extent that I will share here has blocked the amount of data that we do.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:09

To handle not, Allah didn't ask us to ask every month of the year but wonder

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

did not make select to Juma every day of the week, but one day did not make Hajj every year of our lifetime, but one year, it has blocked the amount of rabada that we do. So that we are not being asked that which we are not able to give everything in excess either a Zed cache and head D in

00:30:31 --> 00:30:42

anything that transgresses its boundary becomes bad when Halloween starts here and ends here. As soon as you transgress Helen you enter what

00:30:45 --> 00:31:24

you enter and that's why certain things which are highlighted are considered mcru certain permissible things are considered more cruel Why? Because if you do it you edging the boundary that leads to how we have a some kind of a democratic understanding our time has come to an end. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us a gathering that he is a good word and follows it and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala together as agenda in the same way he has gathered us here today. ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to bless us with soft hearts. ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to allow us to witness the month of Ramadan next month which is supposed to be a launchpad in our endeavor towards opening this

00:31:24 --> 00:31:57

heart. ask Allah to grant us deathbeds is pleased with us to grant us a grave which is a garden from the garden so Jenna to grant us our book of deeds in our right hands, to grant us shade from the deer and to grant us gender performativity our beloved son of a lover and he will send them everything correct cities from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect in any mistakes of myself in Chevron and I seek the last panel that has given us now the level either what's the level of sentiment about Mohammed or and he was lucky
