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

Hola, Mundo wanna say on

00:00:04--> 00:00:07

my shoulder Pacino, CH en Marina?

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

Mayor de la, la la

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

la, la, la La y ou la sharika Machado Ana Mohammed Abu Saleh. It was early he was like me he was sending me to Steven can deal with Dean.

00:00:28--> 00:00:31

Today's topic, does anybody know what it is? Before we get started?

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

Okay, anything else?

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

I saw the flyer that says something else was bigger than

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

happiness until late. Okay.

00:00:49--> 00:01:01

What do you think that means? It's very difficult for me to give a lecture I like to teach which is a little different than lecture. So I'm going to try and get you involved a little bit what do you think that means happiness until

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

that the only way that happiness can be achieved is through towhee

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

anybody else

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

could be

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

the only way the man can be achieved but what does that have to do with happiness?

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

What does the man have to do have

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

a relationship with

00:01:36--> 00:01:45

what I'm asking that so you said correct belief and what does that have to do with happiness? I mean, there are a lot of people

00:01:46--> 00:01:52

that don't even believe in Allah period. They don't even believe that there is a creator and some of them will claim to be a

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

true happiness not know

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

that so you'll see them they may even how do you know somebody had somebody like this?

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

They look happy to you.

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

Like I'm looking at some of the young guys here man, he like man, my dad.

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

So what is what is happening with him? What is that? How do you know somebody to happen?

00:02:19--> 00:02:19

Yeah.

00:02:22--> 00:02:36

That No, no, you can't see somebody's feet firm inside of religion law. I'm saying if you look at somebody, what isn't what indication is there that they're happy? Yes. The way they communicate, the way they communicate with other people. So like what?

00:02:40--> 00:02:48

So somebody says hi, Samaniego, something like that, you can tell it they had. Okay. Mashallah. Anybody else?

00:02:50--> 00:02:55

There's something about them feels jolly. Yes. smiling. And

00:02:56--> 00:03:02

that is they're smiling. They have a calm disposition. Okay. hamdulillah. All right.

00:03:04--> 00:03:12

All of those things are important for us to kind of look at because you may see somebody smiling, they calm and everything like that they don't believe in Allah.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

Are they happy?

00:03:17--> 00:03:31

It's important question to really understand. Are they happen? And the reality is, is that? Yes, they might be. It's a temporary happiness. And most of the time, it's so temporary.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

That it's not worth mentioning.

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

Meaning that a person may feel what they experience or may experience what they believe is happiness, and they may actually experience some level of joy.

00:03:47--> 00:04:19

But the reality is, is that lasting happiness, both in this life, and obviously in the next, lasting happiness is built upon to wait, what is what do we mean when we say to hate and how does that manifest itself in turn, and why? Why is real happiness related to to heat until heat alone? All right, so I'm gonna ask you something, and hopefully this will help to start putting things you know, putting things into perspective.

00:04:21--> 00:04:28

This person doesn't believe in a lot. They're very happy. They're happily driving down the street.

00:04:29--> 00:04:38

They got a phone call somebody, their mother, call them up. Oh, I just wanted to let you know that a check came in the mail for you for half a million.

00:04:41--> 00:04:54

Right? At least that's what you think. Okay. Everything seems to be going well, he's driving in this new car. It's his new job and he just got a check for half a million dollars. And then he's going through that red light

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

or he's going through a green light. Somebody else comes through a red light

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

T boned

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

in a terrible accident loses his leg

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

is he gonna be?

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

Is the million half a million dollars will get his leg bang? No.

00:05:22--> 00:05:31

Does he know how to interact with the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala or even put that into consideration.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

In fact, he's probably going to say,

00:05:37--> 00:05:46

I'm a good person I didn't, I didn't deserve this. In fact, I wasn't even doing anything wrong, I was actually going through the green, I don't deserve this.

00:05:48--> 00:05:53

Can that person, be happy with the circumstances?

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

Let's turn it around.

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

And let's look at that same situation happening to a Muslim

00:06:04--> 00:06:11

who firmly believes that their patience with whatever lost power to Allah has decreed for them will be rewarded.

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

Then the difficulties that they suffer in this life

00:06:20--> 00:06:34

will be rewarded by loss of Hamlet's either in this life and the next, that through their patience with that, with that difficulty, they may even learn how to be pleased with the loss of habitat is decreased.

00:06:35--> 00:07:03

And therefore and then recognize that through that a loss of habitat Allah will give them much better in the hereafter. Can a Muslim possibly be happy with that circumstance? Yes, you understand that the difference? There is the possibility doesn't mean that a Muslim will it really depends on how strong the faith is, and how they process events. And this is why allows them time and data

00:07:05--> 00:07:18

when he talks about happiness in the Quran, and there's several different ways that happiness is addressed in the Quran. But the one is easiest for us to digest and Allah Subhana Allah knows best is isn't sort of to shut

00:07:19--> 00:07:33

right when a Lost Planet Allah says Allah initially like us others and we not expanded for you talking to him. The profits Alliance How have we not expanded for you your chest

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

was that mean expanded the chest,

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

knees and made them broad like he was lifting weights and Mashallah span that is chesties

00:07:43--> 00:07:47

openness his heart, like open heart surgeon was that mean?

00:07:49--> 00:08:09

It's important because we just say stuff sometimes as Muslims, like we have our own lingo and then a lot of times we haven't really translated that lingo even for ourselves. So we kind of say, don't really know what it means. Yes, great knowledge. Okay, but that Shawn has suddenly to open up the chest. Okay.

00:08:10--> 00:08:22

I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna give you that the opposite of open heart would be a way close close tight. Now that part we actually understand is we kind of talk like that fact certain slam type know

00:08:23--> 00:08:52

he's mad at something right? I don't know. That's New York slang. But anyway, um, when it when the heart when the chest is tight. Do you imagine that being something that feels good? That's discomforting, right so the shot has suffered that we not grant you comfort. We're not giving you happiness. right that's it's another way to say it. So granted the prophesied some comfort ease soothing tranquility in the heart alarm national legacy.

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

And I'm not gonna go when I go through the Tafseer of this particular sort of because I want to get to something in

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

a more long time on this subject of happiness until he

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

so that we can kind of

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

put some things into action sell on time, but somebody's got a phone okay recording.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

So my calling

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

is yours.

00:09:25--> 00:09:25

Okay.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

So

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

like a solid Alonzo john. He says to the Prophet it is why have we not expanded for you? Your breasts, something to understand here. Allows without did not say was your heart not expanded, said we know the word expand expanding to do we not give you happiness? One thing we have to understand is that just like our physical bodies are created by loss of habitat that emotions are all

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

created, they're part of a larger job creation. And if we want happiness, it has to come from the creator of happiness. That's why lies with Joseph lm Nash. The wheels are open for you your chest, meaning that we not make you happy, meaning it is, it is from us that you become

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

an anchor with

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

anybody no disorder,

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

Lady and comma.

00:10:37--> 00:10:44

Like, okay, so what do we have their allies with Jim telling the prophet SAW Selim, we made you happy.

00:10:45--> 00:10:55

And alumna Sadako, Varna and Kawasaki and we have removed for you from you that burden was that mean?

00:11:01--> 00:11:16

Any sins that the prophecy Sanomat that sins become a burden on a believer and unbeliever always looks at his sins as weighing him down. Right. And that to be free of that sin actually allows you to move freely. And this is part of that happiness,

00:11:18--> 00:11:18

or

00:11:19--> 00:11:34

was like a lithium Kava bar that was weighed down in your back, as I wash my hands and says, what a finer, like a dicot. And we raised for you, you're mentioned that is that we gave you have a good reputation, again, that this is from a loss of habitat.

00:11:35--> 00:11:59

All of this is part of the practice of life, sometimes happiness, the fact that he actually has a good name, it's also important for us to realize that in pursuing happiness, that you have to avoid those things, which would cause you to have a bad name, whether that's lying, cheating, and stealing and so forth. Then aligning those, as you saw, with difficulty, there is

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

after difficulty, there's ease that will

00:12:06--> 00:12:16

lead with difficulty with every difficulty, these ease another and that's what we say in English, when we talk about the silver lining you ever heard of that? What does it mean the silver lining,

00:12:19--> 00:12:41

sorry, extra benefit, nonetheless, any extra benefit, the silver lining is that when something is difficult, you have to look at it from a different perspective to allow you to see the positive in that thing that might have been difficult, on the good. Find the good in it. Right. So for example, let's just say, let's just say

00:12:43--> 00:13:22

a person was in a car accident, terrible thing. And it wasn't their fault. Right, as a result of that car accident, they went to the doctors, otherwise they weren't going to the doctor, and they had certain scans done that they normally wouldn't have had. And through that scan, they found something early early detection, so panela now, there was all types of damage to the vehicle so on and so forth. But through that something good came out of that's that's called the Silver Line with every difficulty, there is ease in the Milo city use along with every with that difficulty, there is even more ease. So with every difficulty, there's ease, and with that difficulty, there's even more

00:13:22--> 00:13:56

ease that that is that there's always going to be more positive in a situation than negative than the difficulty. But you have to learn how to look for that. Now, again, I don't want to go off on too many tangents. But there's a field that's kind of it's kind of new in psychology I've made within the last decade and a half or so it's called positive psychology, the psychology of happiness, how somebody is happy. And what they claim, what they claim, or some of them is that you really only control about 40% of what makes you happy.

00:13:57--> 00:14:18

50% is genetic, meaning that comes from your parents, you don't have any control over that. I'm just saying what they say 10% is your circumstances that you don't have any control over snows outside, it doesn't have any control over it, or the weather and these type of things, and other circumstances that you don't control. So you control about 40% and you know what all of that 40% goes back to

00:14:20--> 00:14:40

your perspective, how you look at things. So if you know how to in the mind loosely use law in the marriage or the use law you really know how to look for those silver linings and you realize that with every difficulty that you go through that there is more ease. If you learn that then you will learn to be happy.

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

Until then says accident what for that for another 10 thumbs up. So when you get freed up from your worldly responsibilities fun sub Yanni, basically like we would say go hard in the worship of

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

A lot to handle attack.

00:15:03--> 00:15:09

Because, because if your free time is spent otherwise,

00:15:11--> 00:15:35

then what's going to happen is you're going to wander aimlessly, and nobody who does anything aimlessly is actually happy. That's just a reality. So we as human beings, we attach goals to everything that we do. Otherwise you won't do it. You think about a guy who goes to a job that he hates, right? Why is he going to that job that he hates? What do you think?

00:15:36--> 00:16:10

Because he needs the money. So the goal then has become the, the money there are other people that work for far less than what they are worth. Why do you think they do that? Because they're going from that job is not actually just the money that's that that's not their ultimate objective, there's got to be something else tied to it. Either. They feel like they're fulfilling the duty, they're getting something a lot more out of it than than just the money for either for up to when you become free when you get freed up on spending your time when it counts kicking in for you doing nothing, because that's not gonna make you that

00:16:12--> 00:16:19

much. Now we all as human beings, we need time to relax, to recover and so on and so forth. Right? But that's not what's going to make you happy fun.

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

then spend your time in devotion devotion to a lot of what a loud beaker farmer

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

which which means what

00:16:31--> 00:16:35

does that mean? I know you all memorize a song. Even the young guys here so is it me?

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

What a loud beaker

00:16:41--> 00:17:03

and to your Lord, what a lava beaker followed up from rubber? No, no, not trust. Rubber means to desire something turned to him with your run, but turned to him with your desires and your devotion. Right? Because it is through turning to Allah alone in devotion, which is called what by the way,

00:17:04--> 00:17:14

was a what's a word for that? You worship alone alone. It's called to lead it is through tawheed that they give one shot herself.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

That the heart becomes

00:17:18--> 00:17:54

expanded. It's where finds comfort, it's where it's finds its happiness, what you know, follow them. Yeah, you see how sorta kinda shows us how there's real happiness can only come through to lead through that actualization of seeking out Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and attaching our hopes to him alone. So we're gonna talk about that a little bit from this speech of Eminem came by him a low title, who in zandalar, my ad, I'm gonna go through just a little bit of this, show that

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

for the benefit, and this is not normally how I do things. However, I feel like

00:18:02--> 00:18:16

the speech of Mr. Payne is so powerful and so onpoint that just by taking it step by step that if we can digest this and Shalom to Allah will find it extremely beneficial Is that him and then we'll go back to him for why

00:18:18--> 00:18:31

it will claim him alone. Says for album was very short for Southern Italy, the greatest reason the greatest cause for finding happiness in the heart is to heat

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

my husband, because he was what he was, yeah, that he akuna when she offers subsidy. And she also saw that he saw he be he and according to how

00:18:44--> 00:19:23

much one perfects his tauheed and the strength of that tauheed md increase, until he, according to that, once will find happiness. And that is how much or how wide a person's breasts will expand. Which means how more how much more comfortable and happy they will be a larger Joe says in the Quran if I'm going to shut up Hello so that only slept for who knew would be what about the one whose heart Allah Subhana Allah has opened to Islam, so that he walks in light

00:19:25--> 00:19:40

from a loss of habitat, that is his path in life is illuminated through his worship of a loss of Hannah Montana. Otherwise, a person will have darkness and a person's light is according to the professional

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

of the

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

allies will go he goes on Say hello to Anna, for me, you really love what you do. Yes, so that a woman Islam woman unit a little over a little bit you can halogen aside for center, whoever law desires or wants

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

guy,

00:20:02--> 00:20:17

he spreads open his heart to Islam. And whoever aligns with Joe wants to this guy. He makes his heart narrow and constricted as if he was going up into the sky. And in other words, the further you go up the

00:20:18--> 00:20:24

the less oxygen you're able, the less air you're actually able to breathe in. Right and it becomes more difficult. That's why

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

as you go up in higher altitudes

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

I mean, then again, not to go off too far, but I don't know if you ever heard about

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

like sports teams, the one place in America they hate to play

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

Denver.

00:20:42--> 00:21:25

Why is that? Because it because it's the high altitude is difficult to breathe. So they actually have to go early to get acclimated to to the environment because of how how high it is so that so allies will deal as mentioned here in the Quran, that he makes his heart narrow and constricted, as if he was climbing up in the sky. So anyway, pivotal cayambe goes on. And he mentions a number of things that talk about the importance of tawheed. So he says for the Hudler to Haman album, as Betty shall set up. So therefore guidance until heat from the greatest of those causes that bring happiness to the heart, which should go above and mean alchemy as Barry Lucas Southern and

00:21:27--> 00:21:53

associated partners with the last pantalla should ambala be misguided, or from the greatest or from the greatest causes of the heart being constricted, not finding hands. All right. So we're gonna do inshallah is read from the last part of a very important book from Immanuel Kant. He's called for weight. anybody anybody ever heard of that book called Hawaii? I'm okay. We know about the book.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

Have you had Mashallah, okay.

00:21:58--> 00:22:15

Anybody else? Heard of Hawaii, with this Hawaiian mean? added benefits, benefits. Okay. So with this book, the way that this book is written, is that he's kind of like, just things that come to his mind,

00:22:16--> 00:22:54

based off of the Quran, most of the time, and sometimes when I have either the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, then he is going to share those benefits with us and pin them down in no particular order. But this last part of the book, which is several pages, it will claim talks about at too late, but not in the way that we're accustomed to. And a lot of us are accustomed to learning about to heat academically. So when we talk about tohei, we talk about categories of towhee, and the preusse for each category, and what that refutes, and so on and so forth.

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

Which is important, it's important to understand tauheed conception, but living to heat is different.

00:23:03--> 00:23:09

And so there's a difference between knowing about something and knowing something to be clear on it.

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

So for example,

00:23:15--> 00:23:19

knowing about how to fix a car

00:23:21--> 00:23:41

is very different than let's just we have some barbers here, knowing about right how to cut hair like I know that that's not right, his hairline is crooked as always, fate is all messed up. Knowing about that is one thing, knowing actually how to do it is a different thing. Being a practitioner is a different thing.

00:23:42--> 00:23:49

It is my firm belief that many of us have only learned about to lead

00:23:51--> 00:24:16

and that many of us have not really become practitioners of Tallinn. So we know what we supposed to do. We learned a lot about these things and categories and we studied and we memorize this book, but then we really put that into practice application of it and so this is what I am I am allowed to add this one to talk about right now and you'll see the connection with happiness as we go and

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

you know, be patient with me right?

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

It

00:24:23--> 00:24:42

says fader benefit again these are the last pages of the book kolani Tyler what image shading he lay? The man has a you know who? Allah Subhana Allah says there is nothing except that its treasures are with us. Let us process them.

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

Because this is actually towhee By the way, a landfill says there is nothing except that we own it. Its treasures are with us. When you and think about. Just think about a treasure. What is it? a treasure? Like if you have a treasure chest? What does it look like?

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

Yeah.

00:25:03--> 00:25:18

So it's shiny, but in Okay, maybe it's wood. But inside of that there's all of this, you know, valuable things, usually with what's on it with a lock, right? So if you want to get to that treasure

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

in a halau way, by the way,

00:25:23--> 00:25:44

that you need to be able to get to the one who owns it and who has the key to it. Who can open Eliza gel says, What image shape? There's absolutely nothing in less than a facade except the we with us our treasures,

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

let us understand

00:25:47--> 00:25:52

what what is it that you could possibly want? Talk to me. What do you want?

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

You want genuine,

00:25:56--> 00:26:09

you're going to get money, the lady's gonna spend it for the pleasure of Eliza. So, so you want wealth? Well, in whose hand is the wealth? It all belongs to a lot. So how much time

00:26:10--> 00:26:28

you want it you want longer dates, who is it that controls the day in the night and the sun in the moon? A lush Pantanal. So there is nothing except that it belongs to Allah largely Joe wants us to know that. So he tells us in the grind is nothing except that the treasures of that is with a love.

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

Okay, is that true?

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

Yes. Why?

00:26:34--> 00:26:41

Because you're singling out one, and allows you to only single down himself, he is the only one.

00:26:50--> 00:27:20

It all kind of says that this statement of a loss of habitat and went to London on weekends in mineral canoes that this statement comprises a great treasure. great treasure. Well, who was an akula shade in Lego club in lambing, Melinda who has a and that is that everything that exists should only be requested from the one who has its treasures, you only request something, the one who has other ones.

00:27:21--> 00:27:21

Because there

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

is no benefit. It's a burden.

00:27:26--> 00:27:42

And I can't help but think about how this relates to what we talked about last week. When we talked about matrimonial bliss. When you love your spouse or Alan's habitat, it becomes easy.

00:27:44--> 00:27:53

When you love them for other than Allah Subhana, WA Tada, it is going to wear you out. It's going to exhaustion.

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

And it's meant to torture you.

00:27:58--> 00:28:03

And you know why? Because the heart when it is torn, it's torture.

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

And the heart gets torn. When you're loving more than one thing, and those things are going in opposite directions

00:28:14--> 00:28:22

as what it means when the heart is torn. You say I'm torn between two things because those things are not in harmony with each other.

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

Well, Quran will allow you on the edge of the evil world by robots

00:28:28--> 00:28:34

and every action that is done.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

Well that is not done for the sake of Allah.

00:28:40--> 00:29:05

Then it is a waste of time. And it is fruitless. It is a waste of time. And it is void of benefit. bonton will also LA for who was Sharpie yawn, mad you Bonanza had that he will follow him in every heart that does not connect to a loss of Hannah Montana. It is miserable.

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

It is wretched. And it is veiled

00:29:11--> 00:29:21

from happiness and success. It is cut off there is a barrier between that heart and happiness. Which which heart is

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

the heart that is not attached to a lot.

00:29:26--> 00:29:37

Look, stay with this. You have to this is like it will depend on luck. He's saying look right now we're on the first floor we need to get to the second floor. There's no jumping.

00:29:38--> 00:29:46

Okay, we got to walk up each step. So understand the steps here. Step one is to recognize

00:29:47--> 00:29:54

that with the loss of Hannah Montana is the treasures of everything and to recognize that he is the ultimate goal.

00:29:55--> 00:29:58

Clear okay with him

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

The treasures and so when you seek for something Who do you seek from? A loss of contact. And ultimately the goal is a loss of habitat. So don't do things for other than Allah and His flesh clear. Okay, because we got this is this is one of them step by steps, processes. And so he says that every heart therefore that is not attached to a lung, it is going to be a miserable heart is going to be a barrier between that heart and between happiness and success. He says,

00:30:34--> 00:30:45

For Tim, I'm a urine meal kulu FICO, he were in Michigan inland and FSA was semi manual raw level called low FICO. He was

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

hired to talk look what he said.

00:30:53--> 00:31:20

He says so basically, everything that you would want, is comprised in a statement of a loss of data when in Michigan in London, there is nothing except that with us as instructions, and the statement of a loss of data and to him is the finale it is complex comprises everything that you would do something for so there's nothing besides Allah subhanaw taala

00:31:22--> 00:31:29

no one besides Allah Subhana Allah from whom you should request things, and nothing besides Allah Subhana Allah for whom you should act for.

00:31:31--> 00:31:47

He says, an under this understanding says what type to have a simple now the one min esalaam tauheed. And from under this, we understand a secret from the secrets of tawheed. Well, what is the pin what is

00:31:49--> 00:31:58

that is that the heart will not find tranquility, or stability or peace unless it is connected to a law.

00:31:59--> 00:32:17

Okay, then he goes, and he talks about some of those things that connect the person to a loss of Hannah Montana or some of the theory behind that, if you will. So I'm going to skip over that. And I'm going to go to this next part, we are going to skip a step one, but not just one walk up like that.

00:32:18--> 00:32:27

And we're going to get to this part right here which is which is critical. He says, Come to fi handle. Mr. Sackett gave this a line of thought.

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

And so pantalon when Eliza blesses you with a teacher,

00:32:33--> 00:32:33

who,

00:32:34--> 00:33:13

who is a real thinker, who is really you can tell that that person themselves has tasted the fruit that they're offering to you. And I'm telling you, this is the sweetest thing in the world. I've tried different things. But this one here is the sweetest, but they really offer you a shortcut, where you can kind of now skip some of those stages and realize, so he says, Come to be handed Mr. I've given this thing, a lot of thought. In other words, what a lot of thought about how the heart connects to a lot? Because that's what we're looking for here, right? Again, we're not talking about theory. We're talking about really doing.

00:33:15--> 00:33:35

So this is not about Tony, this is to me, we get it and this is how he's saying, This is how we get to happiness. How do we get to that point where we're genuinely happy. He says, I gave us a lot of thought for either us, Lou and Tana Elena niram, akula, ham, you know, love the way.

00:33:36--> 00:33:44

He said that it all goes back to this awesome to this one foundation. And that is to know

00:33:45--> 00:34:00

that every Nima is from Allah alone states, that every blessing, that every favor is from Allah alone.

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

Never piety

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

that

00:34:06--> 00:34:10

both the favors and the blessings of worship

00:34:12--> 00:34:16

and the favor and the blessings of physical enjoyment, if you will.

00:34:19--> 00:34:25

So he breaks down blessings into two big categories, if you will. One is the blessing of worship.

00:34:27--> 00:34:31

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, for example, said what about Salah Juanita,

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

to me for so long, that my enjoyment was placed and what?

00:34:39--> 00:34:53

That's that is the that's a blessing. That's a blessing. And the Prophet is it the same and another heavy? It's a solid Lord. He said that prayer is light. Right? But But

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

understanding that Hadeeth in its totality, what we get from that is that light

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

In and of itself is also enjoyable. Right? So the practice of why your son enjoyed his prayer that taught the obedience of the law stands out as it

00:35:10--> 00:35:24

is from Allah. It's not, as we'll come to understand each other. It's not simply because you want to worship Allah or you think you want to worship Allah. Or you say, right now as you're sitting here, you know what,

00:35:25--> 00:35:33

I'm gonna do better with my Salah, I'm gonna wake up and I'm gonna pray in the last third of the night. It's not simply because it's from Allah and it has to be given to you.

00:35:36--> 00:35:55

With nit and mela dance, which is kind of what we already know, right? The those enjoyable physical experiences, you know whether it's tasting something good, whether it's hearing something nice, whether it's enjoying your spouse, all of those are from the name of the lead that those enjoyable things

00:35:56--> 00:35:59

for toggleable la. And therefore,

00:36:00--> 00:36:06

you must seek from Allah in your Hema cadet Kala hair,

00:36:11--> 00:36:17

you must seek from Allah, but he inspire you to remember those blessings.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

And to grant you the ability to show gratitude for those blessings.

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

So what are we talking about here?

00:36:27--> 00:36:30

We're talking about how does the heart get connected to allow

00:36:31--> 00:36:38

the heart gets connected to a lung by recognizing his fingers,

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

which is everything.

00:36:42--> 00:36:58

Which means that you really don't stop. Because your ability to think is from whom your ability to remember Allah is from who and the fact that you actually remember the law is from who and the fact that you think Tim is from Allah.

00:37:00--> 00:37:21

And so to thank him for giving you the ability to remember him to think of his perpetual, right. So here to record, this is how the heart becomes connected to a lump. It's to recognize his favorites, whether those favorites are from the pot from the obese side, or whether it's from the physical enjoyment.

00:37:22--> 00:37:28

Colorado medical magnanimous in criminal law, lump sum in the Mesozoic

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

era.

00:37:33--> 00:37:53

There is not a number that you have accepted it is from Allah. And then when some difficulty comes to you, you cry out, okay, so lots of data here is talking to us, or reminding us of his favorite soup, Hannibal, what's happened.

00:37:55--> 00:38:09

And Eliza Jones says, first of all Elma land the home to flee home, and remember, alongside Hannah Montana is blessing So then she may prosper, so that she may get filled,

00:38:10--> 00:38:14

so that she may attain success. In other words,

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

if you don't remember a lies or a jealous Atlanta or his favorites, then you cannot have what you can't have happiness or success.

00:38:26--> 00:38:50

In remembering that those favorites are from Allah alone is called tauheed. This is tauheed in practice, not told not the academic tool, he but the actual practice of the worship of Allah Subhana Allah alone, recognizing that those favorites are from Him alone, and allies in a general sense which kurunegala to lung include to

00:38:51--> 00:39:21

tap into, and be thankful for larger results favorites, if an if in fact it is him alone that you worship time will come out in the token near and men who woman will Java differently for the crew hair was should grow her leg now elaborative feeding so just as these favorites are from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah alone, and from his bounty to you and see

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

when the word father is used, it's used for something that you don't deserve.

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

So for example,

00:39:32--> 00:39:38

if you work in a job, if you if you, you know, you have a regular nine to five,

00:39:39--> 00:39:44

at the end of the week, your employer is supposed to give you $1,000

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

and they give you $1,000 is that meaning?

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

Is that from his blessing to you? Yeah, that's what you deserve. If he gave you 1500, then the five

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

100 old rubymine fugly. You understand? Here, every menma that we get from Allah Subhana Allah is from his father. It's not because we deserve

00:40:12--> 00:40:16

everything that we get is from his father.

00:40:17--> 00:40:25

It's beyond anything that we deserve and therefore, remembering them and

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

shukra

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

and and showing gratitude for them is from his trophy.

00:40:33--> 00:40:42

It's from a loss of habitat of giving you and blessing you with Tofino with guidance therefore it all goes back to who so loves

00:40:43--> 00:41:04

from his trophy from his blessing and so it is sought from him in Him alone which is totally and therefore your happiness is directly connected to you singling him out as the one from whom you make requests and for the one whom you work okay.

00:41:05--> 00:41:10

What is the new bill means his land he was really unhappy now understand his

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

sins are therefore

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

from the fact that a loss of how attalla hamelech

00:41:20--> 00:41:24

and we're gonna use this term he has forsaken you

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

what this forsake me

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

was that me we use these terms all the time Yes.

00:41:33--> 00:41:33

Abandon

00:41:34--> 00:41:35

Yes.

00:41:37--> 00:41:50

Abandon is a good term abandoned is a good term. So for sake someone means to basically leave them out in the cold they they were expecting you to come through for them

00:41:52--> 00:42:09

Why has done for sinking right so why Why did you leave me out in the cold you call up your friend you know you caught a flat tire and you didn't have an extra one he didn't add a doughnut in your trunk and call a man needs some help your cell carrier right day went back sleep

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

Three hours later What's going on? He did what that's to forsake. Right? Okay.

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

Well,

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

it's a different discussion as to why Allah

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

would forsake his ad.

00:42:28--> 00:42:45

But know this, that it is only because that person is turned away from Allah failed to recognize a loss Nima failed, thank Allah stems out for that never. So therefore lost him Tana made me leave that person to himself.

00:42:46--> 00:43:11

Right. And one of the drivers that the prospects have actually taught his daughter Fatima, not the alone time and that was Yeah, how you how you bureaucratically study, a slave Nisha equivalent while to kill me. Ilana laughs He taught for time. And don't leave me to myself with a blink of an eye. The last part and don't leave me to myself for the blink of an eye

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

and you don't want to be left to yourself.

00:43:15--> 00:43:26

He says What a lovely extra day you can add the E ff lsvt. Loud electricity and FCM alliance with Joe does not lift that off of his servant. The fact that you can't see his blessing

00:43:28--> 00:43:42

and therefore do not thank him for his blessing. If Allah doesn't lift that off from you, there is no way for you to lift that off from yourself. For me, then, who am Tavon Elan, he will empty handed lay and yet fine was better.

00:43:44--> 00:44:05

And therefore he is in total need of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in turning to him and begging him to push away anything that will cause him to be neglectful, and heedless of those of those blessings from a loss and handle what's happening, because we're lying at home. And this is our reality.

00:44:08--> 00:44:20

We oftentimes don't even recognize in their mind, not to mention thank you because you can't thank Allah Allah for his famous unless you recognize them, but oftentimes you don't recognize them until they are

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

until they go on.

00:44:25--> 00:45:00

And just think about any health problems that you've ever had. The issue take for granted that you're not congested. You take for granted that you taste your food, not just that you have food that's nutritious, but that you actually taste it and enjoy it. You don't remember that until when you get a cold and and then you'll taste anymore you just handle I can't wait till I can just taste again. Right? The fact that right now. You don't have any

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

Oxygen,

00:45:02--> 00:45:05

you know, like no oxygen mask on until you

00:45:07--> 00:45:12

until you need an operation or something and it's all and then you say some kind of law, just the fact that I, I can breathe

00:45:14--> 00:45:33

with no apparatus. Right? So we're in constant need of a lot of data to help us be aware of those lessons. Wait, what are we talking about cardio metabolic machinery for hormone tone Electra, don't worry, we'll do and yet fine.

00:45:35--> 00:45:36

And likewise,

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

if a person

00:45:41--> 00:45:47

falls into sin, because that was, which was the creed for him, that was the tree for him.

00:45:48--> 00:46:26

And because as a human being at the end of the day, he's going to make mistakes, that he is in need of turning to a large amount of data, and calling upon him to push away, it's what the evil affects the results of those sins, which could be one, which could be the Hellfire and the hero. And it could be all types of balaiah, or difficulties that we face in this life, due to those settings, in fact, as some of the some of us to say, I recognize that I've sinned in the way that my animal behaves.

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

And I'm trying to get this thing under control, my horse is going crazy, just because I'm going crazy.

00:46:35--> 00:46:50

It's because I haven't done what I was supposed to do, in obedience to a last chance of being submissive to my Creator. And now I can see that one, my animal is not being submissive to me.

00:46:51--> 00:47:03

And so he recognizes that right, so to to what so the first thing we need a last cantata to avoid sins. And we need a loss of handle metallics to what

00:47:04--> 00:47:10

we need him to push away the effects of our sins.

00:47:12--> 00:47:22

We see this, and what is every sin at the end of the day? Do we let us understand it? And how does that relate to the network, every sin.

00:47:24--> 00:47:27

every sin is directly related to one of the laws and

00:47:35--> 00:47:47

it's an act of in gratitude. In other words, you have misused one of the laws and there is no way you can send except that you have misused a last name.

00:47:49--> 00:47:55

If you misuse the last name, you may recognize it but you haven't thanked

00:47:58--> 00:47:59

me see this,

00:48:00--> 00:48:11

I want to make sure we were understanding this. So the apostle of happiness is that your heart is connected to a lot. How you get your heart to connect to a lot

00:48:12--> 00:48:19

through recognizing and thanking, is nameless, is blessed.

00:48:20--> 00:48:28

That is how you there is a practical step, the practical step that has to be taken to the way to connect to a loss

00:48:29--> 00:48:35

is that you recognize his feelings, and that you thank him for those things. The opposite of that is what

00:48:36--> 00:48:37

is the sin.

00:48:38--> 00:48:56

So you either have forgotten his favorites, or you have misused, that favorite. And therefore you have to call upon a law when that happens to do what keeps sin away from you guys, keep your mind in remembrance of his favorites.

00:48:57--> 00:49:03

Or that once you recognize that you have sin, that you're asking the Lord to do what?

00:49:04--> 00:49:08

To keep the consequences of those sins from harming

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

turn left

00:49:11--> 00:49:11

or right.

00:49:17--> 00:49:20

So I'm going to stop at this point as I know my time is up.

00:49:21--> 00:49:28

And there's so much more that can be said but but but check this out. And so this will help us to understand how we can really be happy to

00:49:30--> 00:49:35

fillet and fish fact hola Diwan doraji de la hora de la Sol and

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

so a servant

00:49:40--> 00:49:43

is never going to be free

00:49:44--> 00:49:51

from meeting these three foundations, these three fundamentals solid.

00:49:54--> 00:49:54

You all know

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

there's a little different here that says

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

That every servant of Allah

00:50:03--> 00:50:12

will always meet these three will soul will laugh Allahu Allah Who is behind.

00:50:13--> 00:50:19

And he will never have success, except with these three things. You're ready.

00:50:21--> 00:50:31

All right, everybody was sleep before. This is the part you have to memorize. Okay? And I'm going to ask you have to select chilla emphasize the last

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

number one is a sugar.

00:50:36--> 00:50:39

Number two, tolerable last year

00:50:41--> 00:50:47

and a half. So number one is sugar, which is what? gratitude, gratitude

00:50:48--> 00:50:48

for

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

everything that a loss was

00:50:54--> 00:50:59

tolerable last year, is asking the law for well being.

00:51:00--> 00:51:11

Asking the law for well being that it is both physically, but here in this context, that you are not sinful,

00:51:12--> 00:51:17

that he keeps you away from sin, because sin is the opposite of well being.

00:51:20--> 00:51:23

And the third thing what Toba

00:51:25--> 00:51:38

sincere repentance, you always need those three things. Number one is gratitude. Number two, is asking the Lord to keep you free of sin.

00:51:40--> 00:52:01

But she will send you will forgive is the nature of banana. And so you need the third thing, which is true repentance. tardy, and what this tells me to turn back to turn back, okay, right Toba means to turn.

00:52:02--> 00:52:35

Right. And so when a person sins, that it's as if they turned the event on a lot of Hamilton and in turn towards whatever it is whether it's the desires a fine whatever it might be turned towards that thing. So Toba means that what you turn back towards Allah subhanho wa Taala, truly wanting the lives of a gentleman to forgive you. And having that firm desire to stay in that direction towards a life

00:52:37--> 00:53:04

that is in constant need of those three things it is with those things, all of which are what aspects of towhee because you're asking the loan, for what to make you be one who was grateful recognizes is famous. And this is why our Prophet is alive to Savannah taught that do I too Why are the alone time and to say at the end of every single summer.

00:53:05--> 00:53:26

He said more I love you. So don't leave off saying at the end of every salon along my Indiana victory card pusher click our la cola helped me to remember you and to remember your favorites because there's nobody else that gives favors except for you. This is Tony he

00:53:27--> 00:53:33

helped me to remember you. And to thank you worship leader

00:53:35--> 00:53:49

and to worship you properly, and part of worshipping the lust pantalla property and again, a lot of times we don't think about this part of worshiping him properly is seeking His forgiveness. And turning to him and repentance.

00:53:50--> 00:53:51

Toba is the bed.

00:53:52--> 00:53:55

You don't do Toba to other than alone.

00:53:57--> 00:54:15

And so he taught me this to add to say at the end of every salon because we need a lot of aid to remember him and to remember his famous and it is through this. And this is an exercise that we need to be involved in really recognizing a loss favorites on us.

00:54:16--> 00:54:26

If we begin to look at the world differently and understand how this all ties in, if we begin to look not look at what you don't have,

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

but look at what allies or Joy has given you.

00:54:32--> 00:54:57

That is how you become really content with the laws favors and you'll be begin to recognize them even more because you're training yourself to look for the good not to look for what you don't have. And that's why a profit is hard to say. You say viruses companions on the low in M and s fellowmen. Look to those who are below you who have less than you

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

Don't look to those who are above you. Because that's what's going to make you
