practical ways to ensure a sound heart practical ways to ensure sound heart. So these are some things. We're going to look at these ideas and we're going to try to extract What is it? That helps us to make sure that the heart is sound, it's soft, pliable. Okay, this heading number 35, la burjuman, Saudia about the low tide and who said the Messenger of Allah delivered an admonition, a speech that made our hearts fearful. What he let he says here, Mo is an unbeliever that affects Minghella University let them in her
eyes were tearful in our hearts, trembled, they were fearful we settled lessons over law. It's like this is a farewell admonition so advise us the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said it will
be tough Allah Aquila was cemetery we were in Abidjan have a sheet to the end of the Hadith I commend you with the top of a loss of data that you listen obey even if a slave was made a ruler over you bye
What in this Hadeeth remember we're on the book what books seven says what practical ways to ensure a sound heart What is this hobby?
What do we get out of this Hadeeth from practical ways to ensure
a sound heart
Allison no doubt no doubt and that's part of this howdy
avoid that no doubt but but I want to ask you something whereas Hart mentioned in this howdy
would know where his heart the word itself Hulu
Yeah, okay. Hearts fearful. What is it that made the hearts to God made them shape made them Trump What was it?
powerful admonition. So, yes. He said the promises I sell them delivered a powerful and then one of the things that helps the heart is listening to good lectures will lie.
It's a practical way because you can do it every day.
What is it that made the heart soft here? What was it? They heard something
from the Prophet it is selected was sent him he gave them an admonition?
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, but but that wasn't what made the hearts turn. Once they felt that way. Once they felt that way, and they felt that Okay, wait a minute. This is maybe it seems like it so but so advise us at that point. It was later, they didn't get heart if this was I enjoyed you to have tough of a law to hear and obey today. That was after it was after the fact.
The hearts were affected by good, powerful speech.
So one of the practical ways to help in ensuring a sound heart
is to listen
lectures. I'll just leave it like that. I know lectures is like a broad term, but you get the point. Like
how do you 36
Yeah, because the profit idea slides Oh, Sam says, have fear Allah Subhana Allah and hear and obey,
hear and obey. He's talking about the leaders, that you as common folk, that you that you hear and you obey, this is your job that you owe that you are obedient, that you follow the rules
of the society the government that has been established that you follow those rules, even if the person that was put in charge of you was somebody that's has no status, even if that person himself is not a noble person, even if and you have to look at the context the Prophet it is selected with Salim was sent to a people who had like almost total anarchy, the system Jani the way it was a tribal system. So this person from this clan had a problem with
This person in this clan they're going to be all types of fighting. It's chaotic. And so the Prophet is selected with Salim came and brought order to a people who had no order and no doubt about it that the order even if there's some injustice in that system, it's better than an art. And this is something well established not just in this hobby, but in many other heads. So this is what the profit is. So that was the name is saying here and obey even if the person in charge is a slave. And he even if he was to the point where he was that low on the totem pole in terms of his his class structure, if you will we look at socio economic status, that that's how low he was, you have to
still obey. That's what that means. Even though that's not part of what we're discussing today. Heidi 36 Abdullah is ruled by the Allahu taala and who said the Prophet it is selected with Salaam said to me if cannot Allah Yeah, yeah. And he read the Quran to me.
Massoud was a bit taken aback by this request from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So he said to him, Crowley wailuku should I read to you should I recite the Quran to you and the Quran has been revealed to you.
So the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said
yes, for in Neo Hebrew and as mayor Herman Riley, I like to hear the Koran being recited from others.
So, beloved, Mr. All says so I recited sorta to Nyssa until I reached the verse for k v. They didn't include the almighty Misha he didn't we didn't abacha let you shahida How will it be when we bring from each nation of witness and we bring you as a witness against these people? And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm sick, and in some narrations has spoke Enough. Enough, he said, so he stopped. And he looked at the Prophet alayhi salatu, salam, and behold, his eyes were overflowing with tears collected Bible hearty and Muslim. What do we get from this to help ensure a sound part?
Listening to the Quran not just reciting the Quran, which we talked about, but listening to the core is listening to the Koran, with what understanding to depth, reflection. And so here what we get acquired is that many of us may not totally understand the Quran, we may not totally understand the Arabic language, that's fine. Take a certain portion that you're going to listen to on a daily basis. five pages of Koran for example, read what it means and whatever language you're comfortable with English or due to Gala. Whatever your language might read. What it means in Listen, listen to it in Arabic and listen to it some more in Arabic. Try to reflect over the meanings of the Quran.
This is something that you can do to help ensure a sound heart. It was something that affected our messenger RNA salatu salam howdy 37.
A her and Mussolini for the Allahu taala and who said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Sometimes I perceive that there is a veil over my heart.
And I supplicate to allow for forgiveness 100 times a day.
what does it mean? When the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam says
that I perceive that there's a veil over my heart Is that possible?
a veil over the heart of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
he's human. No doubt. No doubt is human Kulina man, especially mythical
man like you all are people. I'm a human being just like you all are you had a revelation comes down. What would that means is the scholars that were courageous enough to explain this hadith
is that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, as we know was on another level of
any attachment on another level of awareness in his relationship with the loss of habitat.
So if we could back up for a minute and not think about the profit it was saying, but maybe think about somebody you know,
that's very pious. I'll give you an example.
There was a brother that I know very well hamdulillah.
And he was always in the masjid for fudger before the event
for fudger, before the event, he's at the he's at domestic. Nobody can beat him to the machine, not even the boys. But I gave him a key. Okay? Now,
think about this brother who, one night, something happened, he stayed up a little later than usual. And instead of coming before the event, he came after the event.
And he somebody actually beat him to the message, you know how he feels.
He feels like he's not even praying.
Now it's another level, right? He is another he has a different type of relationship with Salatin.
And so just being 10 minutes or 15 minutes later than normal, even though he still has time to pray as to something as a reason Quran and things like this, he still doesn't feel right.
And that's because of his normal practice. The prophet Isaiah is Salatu was Salam was on another level, in his relationship with the laws of Canada. And so when he would have to stop
any certain aspects of the bed to help around the house, which he did, which is
private, it is allowed to send him help Asia and in his other wives and a salon.
When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would do these things do the normal, mundane activities of daily life.
He would feel like something is coming over his heart. Not that there's any sin involved, you understand. But even with that, he would seek a las pantallas forgiveness. And you don't just have to seek forgiveness from sin. You can seek forgiveness for falling short of where you want to be.
So if you don't pray too soon as after mcgrill you can say stop for the last stuff. Did you say no. But you fell short of where you want to be? You understand? So the fact that the prophet Isaiah select was silently seeking forgiveness from Allah does not mean that he is sinning. I just want that to be very clear. All right.
Even even if we think about it, if we think about the
best person after the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. His name was
Abu Bakr Siddiq. He came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he said, Yeah, rasulillah I literally do and aku allottee Teach me that I can say in my select
what do I do the profit it is select to slam teach a bucket acidic subdeacon oma, the one who was the most pious man after the Prophet sallahu wa Salatu was Salam. He told him to say Allahumma inni, the LEM to nuptse doleman cathedra wilayah novella and from filament fields I mean, indeed what happened in the cantaloupe Orion right
panela Oh, he taught him to say a llama in the Valentina FCI or alive wrong my self
and he greatly
and there is no one that forgives sins except you so for Forgive me a forgiveness that comes from you and have mercy on me indeed you are the one who was off the one who was a for Rahim the one was off forgiving and most merciful so even this the Prophet is allowed to slam toward this dude
to a bucket and we should all learn this and we should say is the font a lot? Because what is the font is what helps remove that veil from the heart.
Right? So what's the title of this chapter?
Out Loud please.
Sincere supplication. Now something else come on.
unveiling the heart. Yes. Removing the veil from the heart maybe removing the veil forgiveness removes veils I don't know. seeking forgiveness removes veils anyway. where's where's our marketers? What happened? You guys want to see where the marketing specialist guy
what was that last one?
excess kills, right?
Next Heidi? Next Heidi
Abu huraira said that the message of a loss of life it was seldom said that he came out to the companions and he said to them, men, Mohammed como Yama Simon who today has started the day fasting who has started his day fasting I bucket said I had
The prophet SAW his son I'm sir, who amongst you has followed a janessa today Abu Bakr said I did the prophecy Some say who wants to serve food to the needy today? Abu Bakar said I did he again as to emotion today has visited the sick Abu Bakar said I did there upon a last message sorry saddam said anyway in whom these good deeds are combined. And he in a day that they do these four things in one day will certainly enter Paradise.
In fact, he said that these deeds are not combined in a person except that they will enter Paradise collected by an Imam Muslim. What does this have to do with the heart? What does this have to do with the heart?
Hold on let's go here.
stockwork. Okay, yes.
And Mashallah, say it again? empathy, Allahu Akbar.
masala. I mean, he hit the nail on the head. So panela
empathy. What is that? What does it mean to be empathetic?
It means to be caring to be self less, and not selfish. So what happens when you fast?
What happens when you fast?
So first of all, you're fasting, you're actually breaking yourself. Remember, we talked about breaking before? You're breaking everything when you fast? Because you are so hyper alert when you're fasting. I mean, people don't even like to swallow their own saliva, right? fasting is just an amazing tool for training the soul. So you're breaking yourself when you're fasting? And yes, it makes you a lot more conscious of other people. That's one of the wisdoms behind fasting, if you will, is that it does make you very conscious of other people who are in need.
There's something about serving food while you're fasting. That is also great. And that is you're serving the very thing that you want.
Correct? What is the fasting person want?
water and drink?
Excuse me, water and food or drink food and drink. This is what the fasting person wants, but instead of them having it for they give it to someone else, which is a clear indication that this hadith is talking about voluntary fasting, not the fasting in Ramadan, otherwise, and probably Selim wouldn't have asked who's fasting today? It was Ramadan, they'd all been fasting. So he violence is voluntary fasting, he fed someone he followed the funeral procession. What happens there when you follow that funeral procession?
It reminds you of death.
And, and and there is no softener of the heart like death. confab in Moti. More either. 10. And he death is enough as an admonition is something that will start solving the heart. But you also do what when you follow it and as
you're making the art for that person which is at shows your empathy for them.
The same way that you would want those people to gather and make glad for you. What about visiting the sick.
That also shows your empathy, but you know what else it does, when you visit the sick.
It makes you appreciate your own blessings. When you see a person on a ventilator. You start realizing that you can just go
What a blessing that is panela
which you don't even recognize we're live we breathe effortlessly. And we don't think allow for it. Except for very, very rare occasions. We praise the last pantalla for this ability just to go
panela the fact that you can relieve yourself economic comala without any baggage attached to you a catheter.
allies and nim is a huge blessing that you don't realize until you visit the sick who have been afflicted with certain things.
It's panela. So these four things have an amazing effect on the soul.
On the heart, fasting, feeding the needy while you're fasting
is giving away that which you love and allows parents Allah says Lenten Allah, Allah has had some people we met to a bone you will not attain righteousness bit until you give away that which you love. Titan, how would you title this? Hadeeth? We got two more to go.
empathy. Okay, what what? What does empathy do? Yeah.
Hold on Hold on.
Right. So we talked that we talked earlier about that it was something in the heart of Apple bucket.
Yeah, a lot of children. Okay. But beyond that, what did we say when we started out that my father, my father, Abu Bakar, and Alan ness be Kathy Salatin was cm and we saw the old cattle Salah was he it wasn't his extra fasting or extra prayers, but it was something that was in his heart. If we need to look at what was it that developed that.
That strength of a man in the heart of every bucket, this is one indication of those things that helps to develop that in the heart of every bucket. So yeah, we can look at it as empathy. What else?
This is voluntary fast.
Yeah, I want other titles. Yeah.
He's agenda. Okay. But we want to we want to talk about things that are helping us to maintain a healthy and sound heart. Yes. selflessness, yes.
What do you say Sr.
Soft? Yes, things they soften the heart. I like that too. These these are all things that help to keep the heart pliable and soft. Okay, excellent. By mashi 3939.
I really wanted to spend some time this Hadeeth anyway, and it's a dramatic Well, the Allahu anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said a person's IE man will not be upright it won't be sound until his heart his sound and his heart will not be upright
until his tongue is upright
the man in his moose net
and declared to be graded as authentic by shaken Banila
what title would you give this lady
Keeping the tongue
safeguarding the tongue
by you? Yes.
That was the Hadeeth itself. You just read the whole Heidi.
I thought you were gonna give me like
He reworded the Hadeeth
Your speech reflects
your sincerity, speech reflection sincerity. Okay. So
let me let me just let me just, let's just look at this real quick inshallah, because there's some panela self have said some things about this one, we know we know that the heart if you will, is the king and the rest of the limbs are the soldiers. Right? But Subhana Allah
and everybody knows this. In general, in general, a king usually has someone by his side
that is actually has an impact on the king. Sometimes this is why
most kings, most kings have someone around that is not necessarily calling the shots, but influencing.
Okay, an advisor, a close advisor the influence, this is the this is how the tongue is. This is how the tongue is. So if the, if the tongue if the tongue is not right, then the heart is not going to be right because the tongue is
Actually the translator of the heart, how do I know what's in your heart? I have no idea until you do it until you speak or you do something. So the tongue is the immediate translator of what's in the heart. All right. And
let me read something to you that a little Khayyam says about this. It will tell you about him Allah. He says woman allegedly and insane
you who know Allah hits hafele will at last minute act lil haram was Alma Xena was sericulture bill Hama, when another lady that he says that it is so strange that a person can find it easy to safeguard himself, and to stay away from eating that which is hard to stay away from oppressing other people from illicit relationships, stealing, drinking, looking at things that are Haram. And other than this, he says, Well, yes, while he at helpful Min harakat Listen, he he, he said, but it's so difficult for him to control the movement of his tongue.
So you remember what we talked about before, the heart accepts what what you see what you know, it accepts thoughts. The heart is constantly bombarded with ideas and thoughts. And then it becomes so easy to just do what
say how you feel. And this is why you have to control your thoughts and control your tongue.
control that tongue, because if you can do that, then be it nilay to Allah there's a there's like this interconnected relationship between the tongue and the heart. And if you can control that tongue, then we get the letter help your heart beat up rank. And if your heart controls his thoughts, then it will also be easier for you to control your tongue, tie.
this hadith speaks for itself will lie.
It speaks for itself.
zaytoven are the low tide and who said I heard the message of a loss on the line he was sell him say, whoever makes this world his primary concern. And think about how this relates to your heart supply.
Whoever makes this world his primary concern, a law will confound his affairs and make him fear poverty.
He will fear poverty constantly.
And he will not get anything of this world except that which has been decreed for you remember that had interviewed my bass, where he says, If everybody was to gather together to help you, you will only get what was already written for you anyway.
He will only give this world would have been written decreed for him. But whoever makes the here after his main concern, Allah will settle his affairs. He will make his heart content and worldly gains will come to him despite that,
despite the fact that this is not his main concern. This is not his. Yeah, we all have to have some concern and that's why it's very interesting that the prophecy some some mechanics and dunia hammer home fabrique Allahu alayhi
ambo that everything is going to be scattered. But whoever makes the hereafter his main concern?
Why do you think that is the hereafter? Once the Hereafter is your concern? Then your aim is to please Allah subhanaw taala and that's it. But if your hum is the dunya if your primary concern is the dunya dunya is all over the place, you have to please too many things, too many entities so you're all over the place.
When the Hereafter is your concern. Allah
says, Allah Allahu Allah who mechanical accurate me to who Gemma Allahu Allahu Allah. And then another narration Gemma Allahu Shambhala, who he brings together those things which were scattered along will settle his affairs. He makes the person content and they're doing you're still want to come to him while he alive. Despite all of that, despite all of that. This is collected by a tournament and imagine what would you title this Hadeeth what would you title? This? Hadeeth?
Sorry, sorry. Oh, I heard a word. I heard a nice word. setting your priorities right. What No, no, no, no.
What is your priority?
Yeah, okay. Oh man, we got to two words back to Yes.
Again, you just told me the whole How do you think?
This priorities decide your outcome. prioritize the hereafter Yes, we prioritize the hereafter that does what for your heart brings all of the affairs together, it makes you content. You understand? Okay, why brothers and sisters in Islam after this journey, if you will.
the importance of the heart. We've covered the eyes, related to the heart. We've talked about Amen. In many different devotional actions of the heart, we talked about some diseases of the heart, death of the heart, and then practical ways to ensure a sound heart. That's a lot to cover. And a very little time, I truly hope that what we covered was enlightening. That it helps you to look at life a little bit differently, that you begin to not only as you take this journey towards the loss of data, that you don't just look at
the external, but that we begin to pay more attention to internally how we feel about things, how to help this heart become better. And what I want you to do right now is so the next
I need my time. And this is important, for example, okay.

And then I'm going to say it at least seven times a day, I'm going to say it in my salad, like a bucket set, you understand, you get the point, I don't just want you to say I'm going to do these three things. What three things are you going to do?
When are you going to do them? And how you're going to make that a reality? Are we clear? Take three minutes to do that you have a minute for each one. And then we're going to share some of those things. Maybe we can benefit from each other. Maybe we can benefit from each other. Start now you have three minutes.
And if you want to talk to somebody next to you, that's fine, but I think you can do this by yourself.
