Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. These an amazing incident recorded in the books regarding Lockman. The wise. Once he his master told him his Ballina Harvey has shot slaughter this lamb and sheep for me what a teeny be up to your burn move of a tiny minha and then select from it the two tastiest pieces of meat for jabil. Toby will listen. He obliged and complied, slaughtered the animal and presented in the service of his master, the heart and the tongue. The master asked him Are you convinced this is the most palatable pieces of meat? He said, Absolutely. A period of time lapse. And now the master asked him to slaughter a nother lamb, but this time to reverse it around and present him with

00:00:45--> 00:01:25

the most unpalatable pieces of meat. So he slaughtered another lamb. And believe it or not, as strange as it is, he presents the heart and the tongue for the second time. So the master is rather perplexed by this and he said to look man, I asked you for the most palatable you gave me the heart and the tongue. Then I asked you for the most unpalatable and you gave me the heart and the tongue again. To which Look man, the Wise replied laser. Phil just said the modern attorney up to your boom in Houma, either Ababa with a bathroom in Houma either hoposa Oh my master, there is nothing better than the heart and the tongue when nourished, and there is nothing more wicked than the heart and

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the tongue when neglected.

00:01:28--> 00:02:11

The famous Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which appears in eBay nomada, in reduced on a lot of when he was selling them said that in the body, there is a piece of flesh it are solid, if this piece of flesh is reformed, swallow hell Jessa dokolo then the entire body will be reformed. What is our first said that and when it is neglected, then it will have negative implications on the entire body. Behold, beware, Allah we're here to tell it is the heart. If you want to ask the grammarian or the philologist or the linguist regarding the word Calvin, Arabic, which is the word to use to describe the heart, what does kaliber literally mean? curl means

00:02:11--> 00:02:54

something that is ever changing, and that's the nature of the heart. It's evolving, it's changing. So it's erratic. Sometimes there's positive energy, sometimes there's negative energy, sometimes you energetic to do good. Sometimes you lethargic, that's the nature of the heart. In fact, when we talk about bringing a man on Allah subhanho, wa Taala. Then there are three key components if Robin listen to utter what the tongue does the kabil Jana and to believe what the heart or MLB or can and to execute the obedience of Allah through your organs. Hence, if a person proclaims the kanima with his tongue, but denies it with his heart, he's a hypocrite. He's a hypocrite. In fact, in the 14th,

00:02:54--> 00:03:44

Jews of the Quran in chapter 16 in Surah, two nahal Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if a genuine believers life is threatened, somebody comes to him and tells him denounce the faith at a statement of Kufa and to rescue his life. momentarily he artists a statement of cover work Carl boo Mottola in number, a man but but at the very time of the utterance of a statement of disbelief, his heart was firmly anchored in belief what Allah and His heart was aligned with Allah subhanho wa Taala, then there will be no consequences upon such a person. Why because a man is accommodated in the heart. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu Of course, the manifestation is in the organs. The Prophet sallallahu

00:03:44--> 00:04:30

alayhi wa sallam said at UCLA hoonah ca hoonah he said, taqwa is in the heart that why is in the heart. What ashara illa Toby and he pointed to the heart. The Arabic bullet said something so amazing, no, sir, you know, madaba or either Marina without will tell the owner be so early, when we are unwell, always sick, be the heart related or otherwise we hasten to the doctor. If it's heart related, we going to a cardiologist if we need surgery, it's a cardiothoracic surgeon. And we take active measures, because we know that an alien heart can be critical and can be crucial. But how often do we concern ourselves about the well being of our spiritual heart, and believe it or not my

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

brother and my sister, Allah subhanho wa Taala also speaks about a healthy spiritual heart and an alien spiritual heart. Like we have a healthy physical heart and an alien physical heart. So in juice 19 in chapter 26, the chapter on bullets in verse 88, and verse 89, Allah subhanho wa Taala says on the day of the Yama lion for Ramadan, voila by noon, your sons will not avail

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

Your assets will not avail you. And verse 89 of chapter 26 in lamb men Atala Herbie talbin Saleem, but the one who appears before Allah with a healthy heart. That's the literal translation. That's the verbatim translation. Of course, if not basadi Allahu anhu Omar Mujahid patata Hassan bursary and others have unanimously agreed calvey Salim a healthy hodja means a sound heart. And that's the heart of a believer in which there is a man and contrast this idea with a verse in chapter two, the 10th verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fee to be modeled, upon obey Him mode, there is a melody in their hearts there is a sickness in their heart, their their heart is unwell they not well, for

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

azada, whom Allah

00:05:52--> 00:06:32

and Allah has increased the disease and that malady and this refers to the mana fatigue and the hypocrites just as medically you will be told there are different levels of a sick heart. Some is not so critical. palpitations might not be so intense, you went up a flight of stairs, you broke a sweat, you lost your breath, you went to the cardiologist, he monitored you he advised you etc. certain measures certain discipline, diet etc. And you will able to you know what regained your strength. Likewise there are different levels of illness when it comes to the spiritual heart. So the worst is this year that is hypocrisy. May Allah protect us. And then in chapter two in verse 74,

00:06:32--> 00:07:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, So maka Sato Nobuko member de danika, yada yada, then their hearts became hard.
