00:04:33--> 00:04:34

We begin

00:04:35--> 00:04:43

by praising Allah azza wa jal. We praise Him. We seek His help, and we ask for his forgiveness.

00:04:45--> 00:04:54

Whoever Allah guides, there is no one that can misguide him. And whoever Allah misguides there is no one that can guide him.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

And I bear witness that there is no god that deserves

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

To be worshipped except Allah alone and with no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the slave of Allah and His messenger. We ask Allah to exalt his mansion and grant him peace and to his family and his companions and all those who follow them until the last day or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah have Taqwa of Allah as Allah deserves for you to have Taqwa of him, and do not die except as Muslims or mankind have Taqwa of your Lord who created you from a single soul. And from it he created its mate. And from those two he said forth many men and women and have Taqwa of Allah, the One whose name you ask by And fear Allah with regard to your

00:05:45--> 00:06:01

relatives. Allah is always watching over you. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah and speak a word that is right. He will correct your deeds and forgive your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has achieved the greatest success.

00:06:03--> 00:06:30

To continue the best speeches the book of Allah, the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the worst of things in this religion are newly invented beliefs and practices. And all newly invented beliefs and practices in this religion are innovations and all innovation in this religion is misguidance. And all misguidance is in the Hellfire as the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

My dear brothers, Allah azza wa jal

00:06:38--> 00:06:45

tells us in the Quran and he calls us to certain actions which will purify us

00:06:46--> 00:06:50

and certain things which will clean our hearts

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

and bring us nearer to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:55--> 00:07:02

Allah azza wa jal, he said regarding the neffs Allah subhanho wa Taala he said

00:07:04--> 00:07:16

when when FC was a word for El Herma for draw Raha Taqwa card F la Harmons that work harder harder men DESA

00:07:18--> 00:07:23

Allah azza wa jal swore by the neffs by the soul,

00:07:24--> 00:07:45

Allah swore by it. And Allah azza wa jal only swears by something which is great in the sight of Allah. He swore by the neffs and Allah azza wa jal swore by the one who created it. And Allah azza wa jal inspired this knifes

00:07:46--> 00:07:50

inspired it to know what is wicked and what is righteous.

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

Allah azza wa jal gave us a fitrah

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

a nature

00:07:58--> 00:08:10

which begins our journey to knowing what is right and wrong. And then Allah azza wa jal gave Revelation, the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:08:11--> 00:08:31

which gives us the clearest of instructions as to what is wicked for our soul and what is righteous for our soul. And then Allah azza wa jal, he said, cada Avila Hammonds that ca successful is the person who purifies their soul.

00:08:33--> 00:08:48

Walcott harbor manda Sangha as for the one who dirties their soul, and the one who allows their soul to be impure and allows their heart to be impure, this person has lost the greatest of losses.

00:08:49--> 00:08:58

So Allah azza wa jal encourages us for something we call Caz. kiya to nefs purifying the soul.

00:08:59--> 00:09:26

And today in this hood, we're in sha Allah hooter, Allah, I want to talk about some of the color aid and also the most important principles and the most important concepts around Teskey to knirps, purifying the soul, because Allah promised success for the one who does it, called the Avila Hammonds, a CA that if this person can purify this soul, this person is going to be successful.

00:09:28--> 00:09:47

And if we want the success in the Sahara, so we need to understand this concept that Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the first principle that we're going to take is that Teskey to NIFS. purifying your soul is made up of two things because the word Zakka

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

or Tez, Kia, it comes with two meanings. It comes with the meaning of Tata here and it comes with the meaning of unknown

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

That was the other.

00:10:02--> 00:10:16

It comes with the meaning of purification. So you cannot build up your soul and you can't build up your heart and you can't develop your iman, unless you first of all purify that heart.

00:10:17--> 00:10:35

And you clean it, of the things that make it dirty, and the things that make it impure. So the beginning of tests here to neffs is to remove the things from the heart which dirty it and to remove the things from the soul, which take it away from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:10:37--> 00:10:58

After that, comes the meaning of a NEMA was zyada. Building on it, and developing your heart and building your connection with Allah subhanahu wa taala. Many people when they talk about the soul, they don't include these two things together. So what you see from some people is

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

they want to purify their heart.

00:11:02--> 00:11:25

So they concentrate on removing the things which should not be there. But they never concentrate on building the connection to Allah and other people. They want to build a connection with Allah azza wa jal, but they want to build it upon a foundation that is corrupt, and a heart that is impure. And this heart will never be connected to Allah.

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

So what a person is required to do is to clean their heart

00:11:33--> 00:11:42

and to build that connection with Allah upon a clean heart. This is the meaning of test gear to nefs, purifying your soul.

00:11:44--> 00:12:36

The next principle that we're going to take is that one of the foundations of purifying the soul, it is to look at yourself and to remember death and to look at what will happen if you die today or you die tomorrow. Allah azza wa jal said yeah, you have levena an otaku Allah, He Tapachula hilltowns or Neff sama. dama. Definitely God. What type Allah in Allah hobby room be my time and own. All you who believe have Taqwa of Allah. What is taqwa? It is to do what you can in the best that you can to obey Allah and the best that you can to keep away from disobedience to Allah with a sincere intention and accord in accordance with the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

So we have to understand my dear brothers.

00:12:43--> 00:13:21

That Allah requires us to have taqwa and let each soul look at what they put forward for tomorrow. Every person has to look at their heart. Because my dear brother, if you don't know the condition of your heart, how will you purify your heart? How will you build a connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala if you don't even know what is in your heart today, and you don't know the condition of your iman today, so every single person has to look at their heart and look at what will happen if they die today. And if you stand before Allah tomorrow, well, Tango Neff, Sama Kadima, clear God,

00:13:23--> 00:13:34

and anyone who is honest with themselves, and looks at their heart and their soul and looks at their deeds, you are going to find many, many, many sins.

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

And you're going to find many huge acts of disobedience before Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:13:43--> 00:13:51

And so this is going to inspire the person to turn back to Allah in repentance, to ask Allah's forgiveness

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

and to clean their heart.

00:13:56--> 00:14:06

When a person commits a sin, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that when a person commits a sin, a black mark is placed upon their heart.

00:14:08--> 00:14:22

And if they continue, and they don't repent to Allah azza wa jal in the end that heart will be sealed and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he recited Ken LaBelle, Ron could all be him Matt can we exceed bone

00:14:25--> 00:14:35

he recited the eye a kettlebell Ron, Karoubi him. Rather their hearts have been sealed because what they used to do.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Their hearts had been sealed because of what they used to do.

00:14:40--> 00:14:54

The sins that they did, and they never cleaned their heart. They never came back to Allah. They never made Toba. And so their heart became one doc after another after another after another until their heart became sealed.

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

And what was the consequence of their heart becoming sealed?

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

Kela Inna, whom out rugby him yolmer eating the match award. Rather they were not able to look at Allah yomo piano, they were not able to look at Allah azza wa jal yo Mel Kiana, when the believers will look upon their Lord,

00:15:20--> 00:15:39

when the believers will look upon their lord who do who do not even know it are behind now. There will be phases that will be bright on that day and they will look at their Lord, they were prevented from this because of the constant dots of sin after sin after sin that sealed their heart.

00:15:41--> 00:16:04

From the principles that we need to understand, my dear brothers, as it relates to purifying the soul is that there is only one single path to purifying the heart and purifying the soul. There is only one single path and that path is the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what the early generations were upon,

00:16:06--> 00:16:31

there is no means to purify your soul except this and there is no way to get nearness to Allah except this in Edina and Allah in Islam, the only religion that Allah accept is Islam and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man Abdullah mln laser either he for who arrived, whoever does an action that is not in accordance with what we brought, it will be rejected from them.

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

Allah azza wa jal sent among us the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

among the believers yet to are they him? reciting to them

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

reciting to them it he Allah's ayat.

00:16:50--> 00:17:07

He was reciting to them Allah as I asked, Why use a key him while you are limo, whom will keytab I will hikma he was reciting the Ayat of Allah and he was making Teskey for the believers he was purifying their hearts he was purifying their souls.

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

And he taught them the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:17:13--> 00:17:54

My dear brothers think about this. Look at how Allah mentioned test gear to nefs in between what in between reciting the Ayat of Allah in between reciting the Ayat of Allah and in between learning the Quran and the Sunnah. So these things come together. The means to test kiya to purifying the heart and purifying the soul. It is reciting the book of Allah and it is a tougher getting knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah. While you are live Mohammed Al Kitab al hikma he teaches them the Quran and the Sunnah. This is what gives them test gear.

00:17:55--> 00:18:27

This is how they purify themselves by learning the Quran and the Sunnah. And by reciting the Ayat of Allah azza wa jal. This is what brings their heart near to Allah. This is what caused them to Toba. This is what teaches them how to clean the heart and this is what teaches them how to build a connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala a Kulu mattes Baron was started Allah I'll email you welcome when he saw it in Muslimeen I mean colada myself zero we are very welcome in who who have a photo Rahim.

00:18:43--> 00:18:46

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:18:48--> 00:18:59

wa salatu wa salam ala Maroussi Roc maternal al Amin Nabina Muhammad, what are the the he also be edge marine and my bed?

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

We begin with the praise of Allah azza wa jal alone.

00:19:06--> 00:19:16

And by asking Allah to exalt the mansion and Grant peace to our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into his family and his companions.

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

My dear brothers, we are speaking about the purification of the soul.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

And ultimately,

00:19:26--> 00:19:31

our righteous actions, they have to come from a pure heart.

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

That is why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hadith of a man of MOBA, Shirin Robbie Allahu Anhu.

00:19:41--> 00:19:53

In which he said Allah in Nephele Jessa de Mulgoa either Salah had Salah hell Jessa Dooku Lo, WA either first or that first hurdle Jessa do cool know who other well he'll call.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Indeed in the body there is a piece of flesh if it is correct

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

and righteous, the whole body will be correct and righteous. And if it is corrupt, the whole body will be corrupt and it's the heart. Let's not anyone saying Let not anyone say that my heart is pure, while they see that their deeds are corrupt, because this goes against what the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam said, rather, if you see evil in your deeds, this only comes from the evil that is in your heart.

00:20:29--> 00:20:36

And likewise, your righteous deeds can be a way to bring purification to your heart.

00:20:37--> 00:20:50

We mentioned the value of a Toba holistic farm, turning back to Allah asking Allah's forgiveness, repenting, correcting ourselves, making up for the wrong things that we did,

00:20:52--> 00:20:56

following up a bad deed with a good one to wipe it out.

00:20:57--> 00:21:09

But there is no doubt that the greatest of all of our deeds and the deed which is essential to purify the heart is the worship of Allah azza wa jal alone and with no partner

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

because it towhead

00:21:14--> 00:21:37

the Oneness of Allah azza wa jal, it is us no test here. It is the foundations of purifying the heart. And there is no other way to attain purity except by this action, as Allah azza wa jal said, what mahalo aktuell Jean Noel INSA in the abdomen, I only created the jinn and the men to worship Me alone.

00:21:38--> 00:21:58

So when we have understood this, and we have understood the relationship between knowing Allah and between worshiping Him, that you worship Allah alone, because of what you know of his names, and his attributes, and his actions that are for him alone, that will actually color alone and with no partner.

00:21:59--> 00:22:34

And when you implement this in your life, you come to know Allah. And you know, Allah has names and attributes, and you understand Allah's rights upon you. So this is the foundation of purifying the soul and the foundation of building a connection to Allah subhanaw taala such that no person can build a connection with Allah and no person can purify their heart, unless that heart worships Allah azza wa jal alone and with no partner, and unless that heart knows Allah and knows Allah's rights, subhanho wa taala.

00:22:36--> 00:22:47

There are many things that we could talk about as it relates to purifying the soul and there are many principles and in reality, perhaps it deserves a lecture more than it deserves a hotbed.

00:22:48--> 00:23:06

But I want to finish by talking about two or three very simple things. The first one, as we said in the earlier part of the hotbar is looking at yourself and being honest with yourself. The second thing is racing to Toba And insofar

00:23:07--> 00:23:49

as for instance, it should be something automatic, even if you have not left the sin, even if you don't know how you will stop it. Even if you feel like there is no way out from it, at least at least recognize that your Lord forgives you at least recognize that no one forgives except Allah and no one punishes except Allah. And when you recognize this, ask Allah as forgiveness. ask Allah to cover it up. Ask Allah to forgive it. For if you know that Allah is Allah for Allah, or Rahima to worship, the one who frequently accepts the repentance and the one who forgives all sins, then why would you not ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive you.

00:23:50--> 00:24:28

Beyond that, try to feel sorry for what you've done. Try to feel regretful for the mistakes that you've made. Try to make an effort not to repeat those mistakes again. And if your mistake involve the rights of someone else, try to make up for it. Try to make up for it when you can. And then begin to build a relationship with Allah. How do you build this relationship? I'm going to mention two very simple things. Number one, you start with the fatwa if you start with what Allah made obligatory for you.

00:24:30--> 00:24:54

Well that Takara Ilya Abdi P che in a hyper la Yeah, moved out to LA, my servant never came close to me with something more beloved than what I made obligatory for him. So you look at what is obligatory, you look at your five daily prayers, your obligatory zakaah You obligatory fasting in Ramadan, and so on. And you look at what Allah commanded you to leave.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

At the at the top of what Allah commanded you to leave a ship

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Well be there, making a partner with Allah, inventing new practices and practicing things the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't do, and then the major sins I'll cover and then I survived the minor sins.

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

You build upon it like this, and then you continue to do voluntary deeds.

00:25:23--> 00:25:37

You continue to do voluntary deeds, because a person will continue to come close to Allah with the voluntary deeds until Allah azza wa jal said hat or headband until I love this person

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

by doing a no often

00:25:41--> 00:25:50

building upon what is obligatory with the voluntary deeds, so a person who looks at their heart and a person who

00:25:52--> 00:26:09

makes Toba and is still far, and a person who starts with what Allah made obligatory and builds upon it within our fill. This person has taken a huge portion of what is necessary to purify the soul and what is necessary to bring success in this dunya. And

00:26:10--> 00:26:14

the last point that I'm going to make and it's befitting to make it the last point

00:26:15--> 00:26:31

it's appropriate for us to make it the last point is that the door of test gear to nefs the door which purifies the soul, which you enter through it, to purify the soul is making dua to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:26:32--> 00:26:39

Because if Allah azza wa jal doesn't purify your soul, none of you would have attained purity ever.

00:26:41--> 00:26:54

And that is why from the best of the supplications that you can make is to say, Allah who made it more for sinner Taqwa was that key. Enter Hi, Romans, a QA unter, whether you have Ebola

00:26:56--> 00:27:08

or Allah give our souls its purity and purify it You are the Best of those who purify it. You are the one that we have entrusted our hearts and our souls to

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

and you are the one

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

that we asked for protection from.

00:27:19--> 00:28:12

So with this, my dear brothers we have concluded and an idea some of the principles or some of the concepts behind a chi attaining purity of the soul and purity of the heart.
