Not 100 Allah Medal of Honor so
when how do we learn human Cerulean fusina was he Tomatina? Me it Hila philomel, the Lola homie, you live Allah de la, la la, la la la la la, la la sharika y shadow no Mohammed Abdullah sudo sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam acid Stephen Covey alone. In a Yomi Deen Emad today inshallah, this evening, we're going to start the sixth lesson of the advice. No Chi em to his friend resulted in a human and Josie in a heady whiny he, and tonight is the 20th of October 2020. And we're going to be covering this part of the book that says that the religion revolves around four principles except for the fact that we still have to cover the remaining part that deals with
the six keys to happiness.
Next week, inshallah, as you can see, in the lab, we're going to start six steps toward enjoying enjoying your prayer, how to make the prayer become corporate, aligned, like and how to make it be that which brings the coolness to your eyes as they translate, right, which we'll talk about a little in a bit, inshallah.
Because what we're going to end up with today be the lat it's going to be talking about the difference between something that you love and something that is actually the your enjoyment, because there's, those are different levels. And then we'll talk about the prayer. Now notice that in the eighth week, inshallah, it says that we'll be doing Sunday,
Sunday, November 1, instead of Tuesday, November 3.
Okay. And that's because Tuesday November 3, Allahu to Adam was going to be going on in the city.
I'm saying it's election day. And lots of hand data knows best what's going on.
But in any event, I mean, point is to preempt any drama parades, I don't know what's going to be happening. long lines and traffic or whatever might be going on. To avoid that. We're going to move that class back to Sunday, November 1 in the light at the same times the same time, even though that's the same day that the clocks go back. So just keep that in mind. So 530 when Shaykh Hanif starts, this class will actually be after slots on Monday. Okay, it's seven o'clock we'll be after salata, Asia.
All right. So let's just pay attention to that next Tuesday, everything is the same shala but then the following week, we won't be doing Tuesday, we'll be moving back to Sunday. So that we clear on that later.
Today, shallow data, we're gonna get our juices flowing a little differently than we normally do. And that's just we just have one question. I want you to answer that question now. What are the six keys to happiness as described by even Okay, am Rahim Allah tada?
Everybody should have like two hands up, or like this or something
like that, go ahead, start
to knowledge. Okay.
knowledge of what what? Okay, knowledge of what benefits you okay? So you need to have knowledge of what benefits you take. So, again, kind of think of it under two frames, right? acquiring benefit and repelling any harm, though to know those two frames that's, that's what's gonna bring you happiness if you can acquire and gain that which is going to benefit you and you can avoid those things that are going to harm you and repel them then you're going to be happy and successful type. So acquiring benefit means that you have to what first of all you have to know what is beneficial to you. And what's what else
before you before you do anything, you have to know what leads to that which is beneficial to you. So you have to know both the thing that benefits you and the path that leads to it. And then you have to do what
then you have to embark upon that path then you have to traverse traverse that path. Otherwise, just knowing is not enough. That's not gonna make you it's not gonna make you happy until you actually travel that path. On the other side, you have to what know what is causes harm. Does everybody know what causes them harm? No. No in subpanel army we can
Can't think that this is just known by your instinct swords just know naturally. And this is why Allah Subhana, Allah sent revelation to clarify for us what's beneficial and what's harmful, and to clarify for us the path that leads to it and the path that leads to either one. And also to do what to give us the knowledge that is necessary
to not just to stay away from the knowledge that is necessary to have the willpower because willpower is also based on our knowledge is based on having one fear and hope. Right, play. So again, the so we cover the first three, then number four is what knowing what is going to knowing what is harmful, and what five is knowing the paths that lead to what is harmful. And number three is avoiding that path. Some people know is harmful, they know the path that leads to it, and they still do it anyway. still do it anyway, because it may bring them some temporary benefit or some temporary, you know, pleasure.
All right. So that that's summed up here, which we covered last week. All right. But that's just, I want us to make sure that we're on that page. Okay, understanding what brings about benefit and harm play.
Then we started here, and this is where I asked you to change something in your books. So if you turn to page
now, if you turn to page 36. This is where we start.
second paragraph. It says, however, to overcome his whims and desires, freeing him to proceed to achieving the benefit, he must either have an overwhelming love or that he would
write in that write that there is discomforting fear. So what do we cross out there?
Where it says indoors and annoyance, that is not the correct translation for what we were covering. All right. So again, go ahead, you can start reading from there. And in the case of the former, he must love Allah, His Messenger in the hereafter.
In the case of the former, you must love to love his messenger to hear after paradise, and his bounty is more than his own whims and desires, while knowing that he cannot combine both. Therefore, he decides to favor the things that he loves the most over the things that he loves the least in the case of the latter, okay, so pay attention here. Does he love both things?
Look at that, he loves something. And he loves two things, right? But he decides to do what favor one over the other even though he loves both of them. All right, good, Mashallah, keep going. In the case of the ladder, he could have the knowledge of the consequences of failing his whims and desires. Hence, he is aware that going along with his whims and desires will cause him lasting fear and pain that lasts longer and are more severe than the suffering he will endure due to abandoning his whims and desires. So okay, if just to kind of wrap this up, again, if we look at the disease's, we're talking about ignorance. And to overcome that ignorance, you need sound knowledge of those
four things, knowledge of that which will benefit you knowledge of the wait to get their knowledge of that which is going to harm you or that which is harmful, and knowledge of what the path that leads to what is harmful. The other disease that people have is weak willpower. And this is where a lot of people fall short. Right? They know what they're supposed to do. And they know how to do it. For some reason, they don't do it.
They know that they shouldn't do something, they know that this thing is going to lead to doing that, and they still do it. That's due to what what's the disease there that diseases weak willpower? How do you overcome
having weak willpower? You have to have intense love for lots of hands on how do you get that intense love, not just for last minute data, but also the promises that are lost hands out as me You love the fact that he has promised gender for people who do certain deeds, right? How do you get that intense love?
Right to knowing a loss of how it's added to his names and his attributes, knowing about the hereafter knowing the description of gender, not these things are important. I mean, this is why it's important to constantly study these things. Not that there's a one off. It shouldn't be a one off. Like we study for example, we spent what 16 weeks on it here.
After, right, that's not something we spent 16 weeks on, then you come back to a 10 years down the line. Right? These are things that you should go over constantly. And that is an illustration in the book of allies of a deal, there is enough for us. And in terms of the description of gentlemen, Paradise is enough for us to create that intense love, and that discomforting fear of the hellfire. And our last handout is punishment tight.
So if we go back over this part here, on page 36, it says,
not in the case of the former, he must love Allah, His Messenger, the hereafter paradise in its bounties, more than his own whims and desires. That means he loves his whims and desires.
He loves that, and most people do. That's right. That is part of who we are. As humans, there are certain things that you desire and you love that you can fulfill those desires in a halau way. And that's pleasing to Allah hands on. Or if somebody does it in a haram way, then that's displeasing to Allah data point. Point is, he still has some love for that he still has some moolah or some leaning in that direction. So it says therefore he decides to favor the things that he loves the most over the things that he loves the least. So if he loves his desires more than he loves the law, then what is he gonna do?
He's gonna follow his desires, even if he loves Allah. And that's why that's what we have to understand. It's not enough just to love a law. You have to love a law more than you love anything else and don't love anything along with a law. You love for Allah for his sake, not with Allah. Okay.
it says hence, he's aware that going along with his whims and desires will cause him lasting fear and pain that lasts longer and are more severe than the suffering he will endure due to bending his whims and desires. That means that when he abandons what he what he desires there, he's going to suffer a little bit, but what is that suffering?
of leaving off? Whatever desire you may have had? Let's just, I mean, let's just take it down to low. Some people, some people except this lamp, right. And so they have to leave off certain things that they got accustomed to before they were Muslim. Right. So maybe he liked and I mean, it's a very simple example. Maybe he liked
bacon or on his egg sandwich. All right.
So that's a desire that he has, he has to leave that. Okay, it is allowed turkey bacon.
he has to leave that one. Because he loves the loss of habitat more. Right? But if a person loves their desire, and what happens when he leaves off that desire, maybe it causes him a little, he's annoying, because he can't have you know, what do you staff?
Okay? Like, what's that in comparison to everlasting torment? What's that, compared to the torment of the Fire is nothing, right. And this is the eternal claim is trying to explain and, and again, it that's a very simple example. And but as you go along, you can see it's, it's really the same format. None of these two types of law. If these two types of love, take over his heart, they will make him realize what should be favored, because human intellect, directs us to favor the most beloved over the least Beloved, and to endure the least disliked, and getting rid of the most is like that, do we understand that point, this this is the this is the special quality of human
intellect is that you do what? That you give preference to the thing that you love more over the thing you love less, if you can't combine between the two. And that you would avoid the thing that you dislike the most, over something that you dislike, but it's a less a lesser form of this life, if you can't avoid both of them. So if you have to do one of them, then you do what?
the lesser of the two harms right now, by knowing this principle, you will understand the mindset of people and help yourself in distinguishing the sensible from the insensible and recognize the different levels of people sensibility. Truly a person who favors a current pleasure, whose effect will disturb his life and hereafter must be a person with no sense of sensibility. I don't know what no sense of sensibility means but it just means he has no sense.
No say that in. In Arabic. It just says he doesn't have an eye and he's not. I'll tell you last night. Well, how can a person favours such pleasures that are as temporary as a dream and a short as a good moment?
A person spends with a character visiting him in a dream over an everlasting pleasure that is among the ultimate
All right, so let's just let's repeat the last person. Excuse me, that last sentence, how? Basically what he's saying is a person would sense, right? How does that person give preference to a pleasure? That is as temporary as a dream? How long are dreams?
Very, even if you sleep for eight hours, the dream that you remember the part that you enjoy is what a minute.
Okay, as as temporary as a dream. And as short as a good moment that a person spends with somebody who visited him in history. Right? So somebody came, you were talking to them in a dream, what? 30 seconds, 40 seconds. And this is really the pleasure that a person experiences when doing the hot. It's a very, very quick pleasure. But the effects of it are very long lasting.
And a large digital says, I saw who love who won a suit, huh? They forgot.
Last pantalla what I saw, he counted it all. And they forgot about it. Think about it. Think about a person who did something 10 years ago, 15 years ago, they did something that was hoorah. They enjoyed it for a few minutes, an hour or whatever.
And they forgot about it.
I saw hula when a zoo.
Allah counted, it is written down and they forgot all about it.
As the criminals will come on the Day of Judgment. And they will say Maddie has of keytab law, you are the most severe and I'll tell you what, I can do 10 lakhs I have what is this book that leaves nothing small or big, except that it has, except that it has incompetence, it enumerated it has written it down.
So it says here, how can a person a person who has sense give preference to the short
and brief pleasure over the everlasting pleasure? That is among the ultimate pleasures? That is the pleasure of gin? how can how can someone on the inside panel Ah, this is what the
look, if we're following this advice of Immanuel Khayyam.
Then at every step of the way, and inshallah we'll read how some of the sellers have addressed this issue of taking account of yourself, because this is what we're talking about here. Every step of the way.
When you get to that point where you can either go right or left, you ask yourself, do I want gender? Or do I want to fire?
Is what I'm about to do going to get me to gender? Is that the path that is taking me down? Or is what I'm doing going to take me down a path that leads to the fire? For every action that you do? This is a question that you ask yourself, because that is what is going to create that willpower to avoid the harm and to stay on the path that is pleasing to a loss of time. Ask yourself what do I want out of this? And what do I want out of this life but this particular action right here, gender or now?
the opposite is the case just just to will be Lydia to me is what I mean by knowing the opposite things become clear, right?
The opposite is also the case. How many times have you struggled
in the obedience of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then after it was over you You forgot all about
last Ramadan. You stood up at night pray total when you pray at the end, you made it to calf and then you may hydropool not this year, you may hygiene and spent a lot of money making hygiene spent a lot of time and put a lot of forth a lot of effort and guess what, how much do you feel right now?
How much did you miss out because you spent money on height?
Right? How much did you miss out because you spent a few $1,000 on oma meaning that you look back and you said man if I just want to make hives, I could have had this house right now. Who says that? who's experienced that is what I'm saying? Nobody. It's not the experience of anybody. That the point is what we do for the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, even though as you go through it, you find difficulty and so forth. At the end of the day hamdulillah the good deeds are written for you. And that's what the loss of Hannah Montana and you feel nothing of it now. Similarly,
the what is spent of time and wealth in your body
The pleasure is minimal, and it's very brief.
But then what remains of it of regret what the other belay is much.
So this is why, you know, the person who has intellect, the person who's trying to make sense, is going to give preference to the love of Allah Subhana tat. So these are the two things of loci in here says that we must know and show line and this is, and this is basically summing up what has preceded you, you need to know these things, internalize them, number one, that it is impossible to have an equal love for Allah, and His Messenger and gender.
And also one's desires. And you know what, that's impossible. You can't have an equal, one of them is going to what take over, one of them is going to take over.
The second thing is that if you give preference to the latter, which is your shadow wet, it is going to result in painful, dreadful consequences believe that there's no exception to that rule, no problem. How could a person
how could a person so all that for such mortal lowly pleasures that come with pain, and also achieved with pain and whose results is nothing but pain? Look at that even your desires? Look, he says they come with pain, like there's never pure enjoyment with her ever. There's always some pain associated with it. You usually have to go through pain and harm and to get it.
And then the result of it is pain both in this life and the next.
If the sensible things of pain, these are the pleasure and harm visa v benefit when thinking of such desires, he would have been ashamed of itself and his sensibility. Thus he will never pursue such desires or waste his time busying himself with it, let alone favorite them over a quote what no I ever saw and no ear ever heard of and nor even thought of by any person, unquote. Right that and that's quoting the Hadith of the Prophet it is selected with cinammon his description of gender. Right the profit it is selected was Sam says that in general, there is Matt I know what that was no I have ever seen. Jani the beauty of it. No ear has ever heard.
Any. Yeah. And you think about it. So panela there's some people there's some people that are meth tune with music. Yani it's a fitness for them. They can't leave it.
their emotions are attached to it. Science, music is something they see your tastes which one
something they hear, look at the property slides was saying listen, that's the attachment to music which is written by a man or woman.
Which I mean at the end of the day is really not that deep.
And then Subhana Allah. Look, as mo km Rahim Allah Allah mentioned some of his other books, that the love of music and the love of the Koran cannot combine in the same heart.
So now look at those who love the book of Allah Subhana Allah
who love hearing the speech of Allah
and it becomes beloved to them. And they can't go an hour two hours without listening to the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. Imagine that. But But the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam is telling us then agenda.
The pleasure of what you hear is like nothing that you've heard in this dunya
it's like nothing that you've heard in this dunya
Look, the most beautiful thing that a person has seen in this life is nothing compared to what a person sees. And the most beautiful thing that they've heard in this life is nothing compared to what they will hear in general. And obviously part of that is that in general, a person will see Allah subhana wa Tada. And if we could just I think that there's going to have to be just a separate lecture on what to loss how to add it and what that should mean for a believer. Because Allah subhanaw taala asked the people of gender is there anything else that you want? And they will say what else could we ask for? I mean, we have everything beyond what we could have ever imagined.
And then Allah subhana wa tada
allows them to see him allows the people of gender to see him and that is the
The Greatest Name of the people of Genesis the greatest bliss is to see a loss penalty. So that again, that's going to require his own lecture because there's a lot of implications, and a lot of very important points related to seeing the loss of data. And in fact, and some of the scholars of STEM have mentioned it's a very subtle point. But it's critical that the the true happiness in this life that when you get to the highest level of happiness is through maraca to Lai Subhana. Wa tada which is what what does that mean? What aka Tila?
What does it mean? Overall keep Yeah, but what's that mean?
from our work by by a key one,
but when you worship but so as close to a worshiping Allah is if you see him die, you
keep going. What also does it entail maraca pie? For those of you? I'm sure some of you have.
When you take a test, right?
There's a person who's supposed to watch you when you take that test, right? Like if you go take the SAE Ts or whatever they do now, tell you, what's that person call a monitor practice, right? play in Arabic is called a Moroccan is the person that's watching you while you take your test and make sure that you don't cheat and, you know, alright, to make sure that things, okay, that's a Moroccan bit. So Morocco is the act of monitoring, everything of watching everything. So when you have Murata bottleless, peptides, it's you knowing that Allah is watching your every move, listening to everything that you say, That's maraca, okay for you. As some of the scholars of Islam has said, the
true happiness in this life is when you reach that level of maraca
because that's going to make sure you're going to make sure that everything you do is pleasing to Allah hands on. And if you do everything you do to please Allah, then what is going to be the reward for that in this life, that allows going to please you,
he's going to make you pleased, he's going to make you content, because you're doing everything in your power to please Him.
maraca is seeing the law with your heart.
And that is the greatest pleasure in this life. Just to see in the lost parents either in the Hereafter is the greatest pleasure of the hereafter.
And that is how you enter agenda in this life, before the agenda of the Hereafter, it is sincerely to strive to see a lost parents Allah with your heart.
And that is that level, that's when you get to that level of a sin. And that is again part of attaining happiness. So
these two things you need to know and internalize. Number one, there is no equal. There's no equal love between Allah and His messenger and loving the hereafter and loving gender and your shadow whacked by you. That means you have to give preference to one or the other. Right? If you give preference to your shadow, when they know that the consequences of painful in a dreadful which means that what you have to give preference to the love of a loss of habitat.
Indeed, a law most high has purchased from the believers their lives in exchange for that which which which they will have in Paradise and establish this contract through His Messenger solo law. He was the best of mankind loves and favors the most overall or the creation. All right, stop there. So we're talking about a transaction here, correct. Allah has purchased from the believers who's the one purchasing a lot. What has he purchased? What's the what is the
sorry, what's the product?
Their lives he has purchased the lives of the believers. And what is the price that is being paid gender, and who is the execution of the contract?
The prophet Isaiah salado city, I mean, look, read that read it again. So we can internalize this. Indeed, a law most high has purchased from the believers their lives in exchange for that which they will have empowered us upon and establish this contract through His Messenger. So a lot a lot of
the best of mankind. He loves and favors the most over all of the creation so panela somehow
I mean we do we buy things like daily right?
And maybe you are a business person so you sell things I mean just think about selling something and the one who's purchasing from you is about balada me like that's
and then on his behalf acting on his behalf executing the contract is His Messenger there's a lot to say I mean, so this is this is the contract here. Allah Subhana Allah says in the crime in the in the law shalom in me Nina and who to whom and why To whom? Bn nella who multigene Okay. Allah has purchased from the believers, their lives and their wealth, this is going to come back to their wealth, notice that, that the wealth of the believer belongs to who and belongs to Allah, just like their lives belong to Allah. So they spend for the sake of Allah and they withhold their wealth for the sake of Allah.
In exchange for why, in exchange for paradise, mela Anan rights when a semi act, woman hutterite colony, Basha, that was no eyes ever seen, no ear has ever heard and that which no mind has even imagined. So panela like so. So the product in this particular transaction, as you can see is the believers life and the purchaser is a loss of henna, who was added and the price is paradise, and the execute of that contract is the Prophet Mohammed and he is allowed to sit in Annie, let go, therefore, how could a sensible person therefore,
how could a sensible person neglect waste will undermine a merchandise that the Lord of the heavens and the earth has purchased? What merchandise is being purchased your life Don't, don't don't give your life for something cheap. Allah Subhana Allah has offered you agenda for it. You're going to sell it for cheap to somebody else. I would have been that. That's a lot. That's a lot of gin, lemon and so Luca Genoa makabe Makoto hammock. That's the last pens out of agenda that which draws us closer to Agenda from statements and actions. Yanni. Really think let this sit, let this sink in. Because you really have an option Your life is for sale.
You have an option, you can sell it to a loss cantata who's offering you paradise, or you can sell it for cheap to anything, anything that anyone else. What do you have? Anything else is cheap.
Yeah, go ahead and whose price is to enjoy seeing his noble face and hear his words in paradise law. Notwithstanding the great honor of such a contract for being established through his messenger? How can a person waste this great blessing and settle for a mortal life? Yeah, in other words, settle for this life. Because if you're not working towards paradise, this is all you have. What do you how do we learn? And then the next life is misery.
Truly, this is the greatest of all loss, which will become evident to such a person on the day of judgment when the scales of the pious and the scales of the losers are like Yeah, he says this is the greatest of all loss. Yeah, another word. He actually uses the word loving and which is
which is the same word that the prophet Isaiah select was Sadam used to describe
the these two blessings from Allah Subhana Allah He says near mitanni mo buno Fie Mecca thielmann. And NASA Say hi to wolf on the day two blessings that many of the people are cheated out of. Right, their health and their free time.
So he says that this is Robin here, and this is you really cheating yourself.
And you're really at loss.
If you sell for cheap and if you sell your life if you if you use your wealth,
for other than the pleasure of a loss of Hannah, who, what's sad.
Chapter Four, true happiness and delight.
If you come to know what I just explained, you will then know the ultimate pleasure, perfect delight and rejoice. Grace and good life are found only in knowing Allah, worshiping Him alone, feeling comfort and affability while being with him. longing Shulk to meet him and devoting the heart of all and endeavors for him.
tight tight. So here
I am, is building off of what he
Which is he's talking about the what the six keys of, of happiness. Okay? And then he's he builds upon that to talk about the things that we must know in order to have the willpower that is necessary to avoid
disobeying Allah subhanaw taala whether that disobedience be by doing something that is Hara, or by leaving off something that is wage, okay, so it describes what we need to build that will power and then he talks about the contract that we have with the loss of Hannah Montana.
And that Alaska gentleman has promised us genda and if aligns with your promises you something lay up for water, he's not going to break his promise
to you, then he goes on to say if you understand that, then you have to understand that you have to know what the ultimate pleasure is because what in order to be happy, you have to know what what what benefits you
so he's saying here the ultimate benefit is in knowing Allah Subhana who would add
that is where you're going to get your the ultimate level of what benefits you the ultimate muscle is in knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala in worshiping Him alone. He says one owns BP which they translate his feeling comfort and affability
while being with him and another words
what does that mean even
being with a loss.
Okay, so he says feeling that presence of a loss of hair what Allah like especially in your salaat
and also when you are alone and a believer has to find this is one of the one of the beauty or the
the most important aspects of Etsy Caf is that you are what? Alone,
that you learn how to be alone.
That is how you figure out who you really are when it's not other people around, making you comfortable.
But that you become comfortable by yourself. Because you feel that you are with Allah subhana wa Tada. And you grow, you find comfort in that.
You find that serenity in fact and being alone, because you feel that you are with a loss of Hannah who was added. This is this is basically what is right. It's to feel comfortable with someone or something, as opposed to
feeling some type of any you don't feel familiar with this thing. When you're around it
feels like there's an awkward feeling, if you will, when you're around them. Now. In contrast, the most hellish life is one is of those whose hearts are distracted with worldly pleasures, and whose attention is not devoted to a law. Hence, they find no abode where they can sell, and know Beloved, to find refuge with.
Indeed, a good and beneficial life with peace of mind are attained through the tranquility and comfort found while being in the company of the first love. That is alone. No matter how much the heart swings between all the worldly pleasures, one loves and desires, it will never enjoy any of them, until one builds comfort and safety and delight with his law, the only supporter and protector whose authority surpasses all the creation, and without whom no support or protection can be achieved. SubhanAllah. So here again, I am and these words should be written in gold, like go back, read them over and over again. What he's saying here and it's it's going to be followed up with some
other statements. Is that
the only way to find true pleasure and this life is for the heart to have focus.
In other words, and then we'll talk about we go going a little deeper.
What What do what do you say when you see somebody running from place to place they trying to make sure this one is happy trying to get this job done? Starting another one at the same time we say he's all over the place. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
That's a bad thing.
When a person is one all over the place,
and even if they're getting things done,
that person cannot possibly feel comfortable because they're all over the place. They have no focus.
When there is a focus, right, it brings a level of comfort.
This is why the prophet Isaiah is selected was Samson.

Well, let me get to him in a dunya dilemma, coup de Bella and only thing is going to come from him from this dunya come to him from this dunya is what was already written for him.
woman can attend f0 to Nita, but he whose intention is to hereafter Gemma Allahu Shimla, Allah will unite his affairs for him and give him what give them focus. Because his intent is the hereafter.
What gyla he now houfy called v. And the law will put richness in his heart, meaning that he will make him content. It makes them content, because he's going to have what he needs. And that which he needs, as long as he's content with that he's the happiest person on the planet.
And if he has a whole lot, even if he has way more than what he could ever spend, but he's always thinking about being poor, he's never going to be happy. If you're not content
what Ted to do never hear about him.
And he loves him and
in the dunya, will come to him despite that, despite the fact that he has won, that that's not his main concern. Despite that they're doing you will still come in.
and that is why that focus is important. So what here mo cayambe talks about three things as we'll see that number one, that your true enjoyment, that living well that having a good life, it lies in knowing Allah Subhana Allah and those things which are built on that the worship of Allah spent Allah seeking to meet him, seeking to meet Allah
and he really wanting to meet a lot of hands on.
That's number one.
Number two, is to know that when your heart is scattered, and it's all over the place, and it's connected to too many things,
you you love your husband like you love Allah, out to be loved. You love your wife like you love Allah, what do you think will lead to the point that you know if you lose them through divorce or through death through it? Then what you go nuts.
You fall into all types of this is because your focus is split.
Your focus is on loving the last pantalla and you love people for Allah.
Not despite Allah
is the difference.
Because when you love somebody for a loss,
then that love is going to always be what temporary
Happy burka honan men love the one whom you love moderately. I sat in your corner believe that your men met. Perhaps that person may be someone who you hate one day.
What? Is it busy the kohonen man. Hate the one whom you hate moderately. Oh, don't let it take you overboard. I say in your corner Habiba Yeoman man. Perhaps that person may be someone you love one day, think about the prophet Isaiah salatu salam in the early stages of Islam and some of the companions who used to hurt the Muslims. Like Omar are they allowed to and who,
right but then accepted Islam became the most beloved person to the Prophet it is selected to sit in after a bucket of subdeacon. I mean, but the point is,
he became the second best person in Islam.
Others believe the Kahuna man hate the one whom you hate matter, because that person may be somebody who you love, who you who you love one day. The point is that moderation is important, so that the heart is attached to a loss of parents either when the heart is scattered, right. In other words, even those people you love, you love them, for what? For the sake of Allah.
Because when the hardest scattered life is miserable, that's the reality. And then the third thing, and he talks about is to strive to have just one concern.
This is so liberating.
When you only care about Allah,
and what is pleasing to Him, and what is displeasing to him.
That is true freedom. And that is when you will find the ultimate pleasure. Otherwise, you go on the internet. And you want to see how many people liked your post, how many people commented, who didn't like it, and what they had to say about it, and that they didn't like something you did last week, or the year before? Or they did, and then you're following it all the time, what's going on.
And then your concern is other than what is pleasing to a loss parents. When it's pleasing to Allah, it does not matter who doesn't like it.
And if it's displeasing to Allah, it doesn't matter who likes it.
It does not matter how many people if you had a million likes,
but you wrote it.
For other than a lost parents, and you wrote it because you want it likes,
Because displeasing to Allah SubhanAllah. So, so making another words making the focus of everything you do, be a lost parents, and it
will bring you that ultimate pleasure. Now,
you must ensure that you only care about one hit here, just a note on page 38. The translator did omit something here, there's some poetry that was mentioned by the author. And we talked about this before, I understand that it's difficult to translate poetry is not always easy, but still, there has to be some type of indication that it was left out. Right. So there should have been a footnote here to just say, some poetry was omitted.
The poetry doesn't really add much meaning to what was said the meanings are captured while hamdulillah. Now you must ensure you must ensure that you only care about one thing, namely working for the pleasurable law. Actually, in Arabic, it just says Allah Allah not working for the pleasure, no, or indeed it is the ultimate happiness that a servant of a look and ever dream of having. This is because a person whose heart is in such a state will not only bask in heaven while still being on Earth, but will thereafter dwell on the lost paradise in the hereafter. It was said by one of those whose heart is overwhelmed with the love of the love, most high suffering some quote, sometimes my
heart experiences an overwhelming state, due to being in the company of a law that makes me explain it the quote of Paradise experienced such a state of happiness and comfort. I am confident that they lavish in the light beyond imagination law, alone, in this dunya he's saying that sometimes, he's so happy that he says to himself, if the people of Paradise experienced anything, like what I'm experiencing right now, and he's doing it, then indeed they are living, you know, in a delight that is beyond imagination. Subhana Allah. Now, another person said, and both of these statements are attributed to abbotswood, a man at delgany know, another person said, sometimes, quote, sometimes
the heart experiences a state of joy, because of which it leaks with great marriage. Unquote.
And another person said, quote, how pity and poor are those whose concern revolved around his worldly life. they departed the worldly life without
The Birth of this person and they depart the dunya without their people of the dunya meaning that there are people who are attached to the dunya let they yet they leave the dunya without tasting the best of what they're doing here has to offer.
He was asked, he was asked this this statement, by the way is attributed to robotic wahala. Now he was asked he was asked, and what is that? He replied, knowing the law, loving him and feeling affability while being close to him and longing to meet him somehow. Yeah,
truly, there is no grace equivalent to the grace that the dwellings of Paradise lavish themselves with this kind of grace Yeah, so let's let's just if you have a pen here, he's translating name is Grace, which is okay. I think bliss is maybe better here truly, there is no bliss. But but it does not say equivalent to the bliss of the people of Paradise because there's absolutely nothing in is doing it anyway, that's going to be equivalent. What it does say is that resembles so it says truly, there is no bliss that resembles the bliss of the dwellers of Paradise, except for this meaning, knowing the lost hands either hoping for that meeting with him, putting one's trust in Him, and
being close to him and so forth. Now, this is why a lot messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said quote, women and fragrance have been made dear to my affections and my pleasure, peace and contentment are made in the salon okay? So pleasure, peace and contentment if you have the.
If you have the book, then what I want you to do there with pleasure, peace and contentment
is to put over top of that corporate aligned
corporate aligned cough raw Tamar Buta pour what wine
so translating is pleasure, peace and contentment, what they're trying to do is capture all of the meanings that the that have been said about what corporate dyeing means in Arabic. So here it says, woman and fragrance have been made dear to me, they've been made beloved to me. He says what jewelry Let's kotora to aney for Salah tight. So normally this translate is the coolness of my eye. The reason that is, is because when a person is happy, they usually what? What they usually laugh, but there's a there is a cry that people do. When there's their tears, they call them tears of joy, right?
You've heard of that, right? Tears of joy, tears of joy, though this is not actually
not actually scientifically factual. But they say tears of joy are cool, right? Whereas tears of sorrow are hot.
But they're all body temperature, honestly, but I mean, maybe just feels different.
The emotions are no doubt, but they call it the tears of joy, they call they considered them to be cool, right? So in other words, the coolness of my eye is because of the extreme joy now not everything that you love, right causes you that level of joy that you're going to cry, but there's some things that you love so much, that they cause you to cry tears of joy.
This is what salaat was for the Prophet it is a lot to us today. So this is a level that is beyond what it's beyond just loving something. It's that you love it so much that it causes you
or that it's at that level that it will cause you to cry tears of joy. The other meaning of corba time is from alcara which which is to be to be stable in other words, that once you once your eyes fall on this thing, you don't look right and left because you're so pleased with it right. So it stabilizes you it brings you stability and peace and tranquility. Right. So this is the other meaning. So it brings the profit idea select with Sadam joy, and it also brings him what
that it brings some tranquility and serenity.
In this report, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed that two things from his worldly life were made dear to his affection. Then he followed him with a statement
Say that his pleasure, contentment and peace were made for him in the salon. Evidently the feelings of pleasure, contentment and peace are of a higher rank than the feelings of love. Because not all that a person loves results with pleasure, peace and contentment. For such feelings are only attained with the most beloved one would be loving boys essence. That is, he is loved simply for who he is subhanho wa Taala now this ultimate state of love cannot be for anyone but a lot alone and this is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would make this Do I want you to memorize this do I All right. The Prophet salado was some would say a llama in the US iluka hope back will have bad menu a
book will have by Merlin Yukari boonie illa have big
collected by a tournament and greatest I hate by many other scholars of Heidi Clooney chicken Benny Rahim Allah. Allah in ESL oka hubback Oh Allah, I asked you for your love. And that could mean that could mean meaning that you love me but it also means that you make me love you. Okay, hello, my name is Haruka how Beck will help me You hit book and to love. It says here the love of those who love you but to love those who love you.
Right because I want to love for your sake as well. For lemania seleukid habeck will help you hit book will hug babbling you kalibo Neela how big and the love of every action or the love of actions that bring me closer to your love. Right
evidently the feelings of pleasure this this ultimate state of law.
This ultimate state of love cannot be for anyone but a law alone, the one and only worthy of worship while anything or anyone else's Beloved, as a result of loving him. Hence persons or things are beloved for his sake. And we do not love anyone or anything alongside Yang alongside him with him. We love for him but not with him subhana wa Tada. Now, this is because to love for his sake, is a matter of tawheed whereas to love anything or anyone with him is a form of shirk. Because a mushrik that is one who associates partners with a love takes other than a law as equals to him. And so he loves them as he is supposed to love a law. Whereas, whereas a Whitehead, that is one who works for
law alone, loves those who love loves, and hates those whom the law hates all of his actions or for his sake. And all that which he refrains from are also for his sake, Allah, Allahu Akbar. And that's what's going to the details of that are going to come right now so loving for law and hating for Allah and what doing for a law and refraining for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala all of that has to be near and dear to the head, the one who is worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala alone now,
religion revolves around four rules
around Yeah, okay. Religion revolves around these four rules, namely love and hate, and bull, which necessitates the following actions and fear, refraining and abandoning and giving away that which one owns and withholding that is refraining from dispersing.
That being said, Whoever ensures all that is sincerely for law sake, his fate will be perfect. And whoever fails to ensure either all of the said aspects or for loss sake, his faith becomes affected, according All right, so, let's look at this. The prophet Isaiah is selected as Sam said, one, that whoever loves for the sake of Allah, and hates for the sake of Allah, and he gives for the sake of Allah and he withholds for the sake of Allah has perfected he men. And notice that love is the beginning of all of these actions. In fact, no claim goes this far and allows it to like fan and another book of his to state that, that that actually hate is the result of you loving its opposite
and not vice versa.
That hate is the result of you loving the opposite of that thing. You hate something because you love its opposite, right? But not vice versa necessarily. And so it all stems from love. So you love for Allah.
You hate for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah and this part is going to the explanation of it is going to come because some people look at this as being like extreme. Oh, what why do we hate something is impossible every human being loves and hates
Every human being loves anything. And I don't want to go start quoting from the Bible because there are many things that even though the Christians will, you know, claim that it's all love, there are statements that are they have attributed to a silence to them and their Bible,
where he is telling them that in order to be his follower, they have to hate. There are certain things they have to hate, and that is just the nature of the human being, there is no way that you can love Allah Subhana Allah, but love what he hates.
You have to hate what he hates. subhana wa Tada. And we talked about this before we when we studied a little Buddha, that love for las panatela that it is not enough that you don't do the sin, you have to hate the sin, you have to hate drinking intoxicants, you have to hate Zina. Not that you just don't do it, but that you hate it. Because that's the only thing that's going to stop and cut off the paths that lead to, to that thing that's harmful, you have to hate it. Otherwise, you will follow that path. And then maybe it'll kick in, you know that that email or maybe it won't. But if you hate it, you won't get there. You won't even start to travel the path you have to hate sins, not
just that you don't, not just that you don't do them, right. So, again, this is that cycle that you love, philosophy mentality you hate for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, that if if that is the case, then you will give for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah you will spend on those things that Allah Subhana Allah wants you to spend on and you withhold from those things that are hot so you're not gonna gamble anymore. You're not going to spend on intoxicants and drugs you're not going to spend even if somebody comes in ask you from your children and you love them, but that you know, they want to spend that money in a way that is pleasing to Allah stands out to you that you withhold
even though you love them. Right. All of that has to be for a loss of mentality. These are the core principles of Islam. We're going to read about this in shallow Tada. This is from the commentary of Neville is Rahim Mahalo to Allah whom we used to read some of his works. We used to read some of what he would say in in our when we were doing a lackey the last two years and about the hereafter. This is from his shot of Alaska to Hawaii. So he says a tournament he has recorded a tournament he has recorded that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever loves for law haysville law spends for lo and behold, for law has perfected Eman. This means and true. Now it is with a law that
love and hate are the foundations of the acts of the heart. That's no doubt about that, that love and hate are the foundation of elemental cobia Hara cattle can and your action all of the actions of the heart and spending money or withholding it might be a perfection. It marks what's perfection, love and hate for Allah now, since money is at the other end of the soul. So what actually what it says in Arabic is asset an asset and what are the parts enough care, it's the it's the last thing that your soul is attached to, from your possessions from the things that you have the last of, of those things that your soul is attached to is wealth. Okay? Now, in the body lies between it and
money. So the body is between so your heart is the closest thing to you. And then there's your body. And then there's your wealth. This is what he's saying. So your your body is between your heart and your wealth. One offers the first and the last two are law, meaning it offers its heart to a law because it loves and hates for law. And it offers its wealth to Allah because it spends for long withholds from Allah. Allah is really his guy in every respect. He's free from every form of shirk, from seeking anything other than a loan, or paying his host on note, notice that painting his hopes on other than Allah.
Allah Eliza Joe has to be the only one you hope for and that hope has to result in action men, Canada, yo, Judy Paul, or be here what failure whoever hopes for that meeting with the law?
Then what failure man then let him work for Yeah, mallamma and solea. Then let him do righteous actions. No, well, I used to be better to be here. I hadn't let him not commit any shift in that worship man. He is free from every form of shirk, from seeking anything other than a law or pinning his hopes on it. He has the most perfect man. These and other similar are that day that was the part he was talking about that it proves that he man is a various levels. That the point here is that this is what it means to love for law and to hate for the sake of Allah to give for the sake of Allah to withhold for the sake of Allah. I'm actually going to see there it says see even Rogers
commentary. I'm going to read this in the time that we have until salaat and we're going to stop there and
We'll pick up here and solo tada hamdulillah we're almost back on schedule, like a page off. So we're almost back but this is this is important about logic about him I'm allowed to add it at the very last part of his explanation of nll Albion will be in the halaal is clear, and the Haram is clear, that Hadith which is the six Heidi and the 40. Heidi, the woolly mammoth, no he, even Roger says at the very end of that Hadith where it's talking about what if the heart, the prophesy samsara in the field Jessa, De modo de Sala had Sahaja Dooku. In the heart, there is a piece of flesh if it is or morsel of flesh, if it is righteous than all of the body will be righteous type. Allah Subhana
Allah says called incontinent to hipbone Allah for tibshirani biblical Allah. Allah says if you love a lot of Follow me, and a lot will love you.
Like, this shows that the love of what a lot detests,
to love with a lot of the test and the hatred of what he loves, means that one is following his whims. And doing that continuously and habitually is a part of a [???] kill huffy.
It is a manifestation of that hidden form of shift
which is shown by his words say if you love a lot and follow me Allah will love you Allah makes following his messenger the sign of the truthfulness of loving him
which shows that love is incomplete without obedience and compliance. Love is incomplete without obedience and compliance and has no bacillary Rahim Allah to Allison, the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said, O Messenger Allah, we love our Lord greatly. So Allah love to make a sign for his love. This is the sign so a law revealed this is a if you love a love and follow me and Allah will love you from this hasn't said, know that you will never love Allah until you love obedience to Him. Not just that you obey Him, but that you love to obey Him. And there's a difference.
The noon and masuri Rahim Allah was asked, When do I love my Lord? He said when what he hates is more bitter to you than aloe. And he a southern and that's why they call a sub anyway. Now you can look up how bitter Allah was. Bishop admin acidity said, it is not one of the signs of love that you should love which your beloved hates. So if you love what Allah Subhana Allah hates to know that you don't really love him that your love is incomplete. We are cool but narrow. Judy said everyone who claims to love Allah and does not comply with the laws command and his claim is false. It's a false claim. Ruane said love is compliance in every state and yeah, heaven wired said he claims to love a
love and does not guard his limits, is not truthful. And one of the self said I read in one of the ancient books whoever loves the law, nothing will have greater weight with him than his good pleasure. And whoever loves the world, than nothing will have greater weight with him than his self whims. And the sunon it is narrated that the prophesy Samson and this is part I want you to pay attention to the most whoever gives you the sake of Allah withholds for the sake of Allah loves for the sake of Allah hates for the sake of Allah has perfected he men. The meaning of this is that if every movement of the heart and limbs is for the sake of Allah, then the slaves he man has by that
become perfected inwardly and outwardly. It follows from the rightness of movements of the heart, that the movements of the limbs will be correct.
Then he goes on to say, it has an adversity, Rahim Allah tada said, I do not look with my sight, nor say anything with my tongue nor grasp with my hand, nor get up on my feet until I consider whether it is for the sake of an act of obedience or disobedience. What am I doing? When I'm looking? Is it obedience or disobedience? Every single thing you do, you need to ask yourself is this obedience to Allah or disobedience to Allah? He said, if it is obedience, then I continue. And if it is disobedience, then I refrain.
Mohammed Ibn Al father, Al belfie, Rahim, Allah to Allah said, I have not taken a step for 40 years for the sake of any other than Eliza.
And someone said to do the party, if only you would move from the shade into the sun. He said, this is a step about which I don't know how it will be recorded.
I'm not sure if I go this way. Is it going to be recorded for me or against me? I'm good, I'm gonna. So when these people's hearts were right, and the desire of any other than Allah did not remain in them, then the limbs became right and they only move for the sake of Allah.
Panasonic for the sake of that in which has good pleasure lies, we'll learn how to add an atom. And this is what you know, these are some of the things that when we talk about loving for law and hating for law, you can't just gloss over that. You can't just gloss over. These are things you really have to understand what that means and go in and look at how the seller, in fact, implemented that in their lives implemented the love of Allah Subhana Allah and the hatred for loss pantile in their lives and giving for law and withholding for law. And on that note, we'll talk a little bit about more about that next week inshallah. lozada szczepanik alone will be Ambika shadow Illa Illa
