This online initiative, may Allah subhanaw taala bless those who have thought of it and executed it and put it into fruition Allahumma Amin.

00:00:47--> 00:01:27

Currently as you can see, I'm in the blessing city of our Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, myself and a few of the Muslim Institute instructors, we were part of this what is called a blessing voyage every year, in chatlog. During the holiday season, we attend to our Emre with our families and friends and hundreds of brothers and sisters from all around the world. And I wanted inshallah, to speak to you about what I spoke to them about. And one of the things about the city of the prophets I send them is that it's very hard softening and my discussion with you about is the anatomy of a heart, the anatomy of a spiritual being that place that the prophets I seldom said,

00:01:28--> 00:02:13

either Sadhguru Han Solo, hell just adore kulu kulu if one's heart is pure, is healthy, the rest of their existence the rest of their being, is made healthy. And the prophets lie Selim in many, many different forms in different ways would make dua for his heart and the hearts of others. And he would ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, as is narrated by his wives saying omnicell Amaro de la Chateau de la Juan when they both share these Hadith of the Prophet that his most often made dry inside his home in the privacy of his home, when he's with his family, relaxing, enjoying his company, their company, you would say Allahumma Yeah, macula mo kalibo kulu sub bit calbee Allah

00:02:13--> 00:02:13

denecke

00:02:15--> 00:02:44

or kuruva Allah Dini, Oh Allah Who is the Turner of hearts, the one who is capable and the controller of our heart, keep my heart firm, keep our heart firm, upon the life that is most pleasing to you. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to accept the joy of the prophets, I sell them on behalf of all of us, and make us from those who our hearts our firm, and the door of the prophets before him alone.

00:02:45--> 00:03:04

A bit akademin make our feet firm, and of the things that they would be known to make up for what's for their heart, like Ibrahim alayhis salam, where he would ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to grant him have called very Saleem, a healthy heart.

00:03:05--> 00:03:54

Three things that I want in sha Allah in the next 15 minutes that I have with you, may Allah subhana wa Taala make them bless sad moments. The first of them is I want you to understand that your heart will always change from one circumstance to the next. And the heart has been given the descriptive term sumio Calvo, Calvin mean agility, it shifts, it's transient, it's temporal. It has a temperament that requires discipline. And therefore there is the discipline in Islam, which is to Ischia to follow, but it was fear to lose the purification of the heart and the purification of the soul are intertwined as a study within our faith, and some of the greedy moms, if not all of them

00:03:54--> 00:04:28

have written on this topic, because it's one thing to learn the it's another thing to learn the fifth as it's applied in each person's particular exemplary standard of life. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a person whose heart was alive even when his eyes were asleep. As is in the Hadith of the Allahu Allahu wa. The Prophet woke up. She knows that he was asleep she could hear him breathing heavily in asleep and he woke up and he went to pray without making will do and she said Diablo Sula, la sala I sell them you were asleep, should you not or have you

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

is not worry, we'll do something necessary at this time. And he said, lie Newton.

00:04:35--> 00:04:44

The eyes may have fallen asleep, but the heart is high, he is alive. And Allah subhanaw taala gives us this imagery in the Quran where he says,

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

a woman can meet and you now give them the example of the one who is deceased. And then we brought him to life deceased in a spiritual sense, and then we brought them into a living experience where their life

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

rejuvinated a woman shuttle holla who saw that oh look at the one whom Allah has opened their chest, meaning expose their heart to faith for who Allah Nordmann Robbie. And they have received the light and enlightenment from their Lord, come in who can you give them as it can, you can't make them comparable to the one who is in the darkness is and the precepts of the desires of their soul, where their heart is diseased. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that in the hearts that there is a nocta, there is a.so that it is a dark dot. And it increases until it envelops the whole heart, the more sins a person commits into their life. And he says a lot he was seldom to a point

00:05:47--> 00:06:28

that their whole heart becomes enveloped from it, that the heart becomes diseased and ill. So the rest of their being their faithfulness becomes solid. And a lot tells us in the follow on about those whose hearts have this condition, fearful lwv him zaven that in their hearts that there is this pre turbulenten disease that leads them away from a law. The law tells us about the nations that came before us. For lm Mazda who has a lot of fun, Obama's isn't sort of soft, that when they departed from what they were known to shoot to have maintained and followed as a practice of faith, when they chose to leave off the basics of their faith that Oh, he they're so bad. They're their

00:06:28--> 00:06:51

acts of worship. When they consciously chose to do that. I turned their hearts away from it, meaning that the pain of seeing and the remorse of error was no longer there. And the prophets lie Selim speaks of this in different ways and one of the scenes for example of losing a lot of Juma three prayers three consecutive Juma hours in a row, top Allah.

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

The prophet SAW Selim said that person a law has sealed their hearts and Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:59--> 00:07:43

sealing the heart means that the light of faith cannot penetrate it. And Allah warns us of this in the Koran kettlebell or on Allah, Allah with him. Name fact that their hearts are impregnable to the truth because it has been encrusted with a rusting and an evilness that is encrusted it and made it McCool unable to attain palooka home La Jolla. Allah says in the Quran, that those who are distracted from the Day of Judgment, their hearts are in play and just distant from what Allah has ordered them to maintain. May Allah protect us from this. So know that your heart comes towards Allah in certain points and turns away from Allah. And it's important for you and I to monitor that

00:07:43--> 00:08:19

time that existence that we have with our maker and our Creator, that when our heart inclines towards a law, that we should rejoice will be badly Cavalier for Whoa, it's a moment of joy that you have done and accomplished that great act of worship. You have fulfilled your prayers all five for the day, you have done the two o'clock crowd before fed you've you've done a lot something great, you've been charitable in your spirits in your wealth and your time and your energy. You've had a good relationship with your spouse, you've shared a moment of love and, and fidelity with each other, for the value of Allah for Let your heart have delight. In the same way. Know that when your

00:08:19--> 00:09:01

heart is disturbed, and you've committed sin. The Prophet describes it by saying that sin sinfulness in life mahak epheus aldric is the thing that troubles your heart in your chest will hit on your Polycom, NASS, and you're fearful that people will observe you doing it. It's secretive in your capacity. So anytime you have that uneasy feeling in your heart, it's a sign of faith that you've done wrong. The danger of course, which is the second point that I want to warn you about is where a person forgets that feeling and becomes numb to that feeling. And they have lost the lowest level of Eman And you hear this in the Hadith of the prophets, I send them the authentic hadith memoral I

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

mean, c'mon Quran, the one who sees a sin and evilness happening, and they have the power to change it.

00:09:10--> 00:09:45

It's in their control, change it with your control. If you don't have that family sign, you can at least speak about it. If you can't even do that. It should be a thing that you hate pay across the hallway. It's something you hate in your heart with alika Lehman that's the lowest attribute of faith. So that means when you see something wrong in your life, in your existence in your family, in your community, and it doesn't bother you then know that you're a man is that a solid lowered? You know, minimum wage kind of effort. May Allah protect us from that a lot. I mean,

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

so the second point is, how do we recover? How do we recover our heart? How do we get our heart resurgent? And I want you to know that it is an uphill battle and to you to ascend to a lawn to Jenna V max.

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

adage, a law tells us it is an elevated height you have to climb and ever to Everest of spirituality, to arrive to a law with happiness and comfort. May Allah make that. So three ways to do that, that I asked myself and you to remember, first be secretive with your good deeds in a greater capacity than you are apparent in your good deeds. And therefore anything that you do that is blessed, and this is what our teachers would tell us. May Allah have mercy on the chef Mohammed so forth Notre Dame, he would say, Yeah, I ha, anything that you've done, Island eaten in apparent to everyone, and it's praised and it's something blessing that you have done for law, but others

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

have acknowledged it fell. Let there be something in your privacy in your life loss in your private life that is of a greater magnitude. So you've given a donation of 100 pounds $100. And everyone has come to know of it. Make sure that you've given 200 110 300 1000 in your privacy that no one has attributed it to you. Number two, be consistent with your five daily prayers. And those are the things that will keep you firm upon Islam, and I have to let the vein in our body now Masada, the thing that distinguishes between us and those who have no faith is our prayer. The one who abandons prayer in its totality with the intention of never doing it again and has given up hope and in their

00:11:22--> 00:11:56

prayer. They have entered into a state of disbelief. They're doing the act of those who disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala. Number three, open your heart to loving others and the prophets I send them he shares with us that Allah says in the hadith of footsie Whaddya bethlem mahad Betty, my muhabba my love for mankind for you as a human being becomes obligatory once you love other people once you love each other living would have been to those who love each other, and from the seven of those who will be shared, shaded by law on the Day of Judgment.

00:11:57--> 00:12:05

To arhavi law, those who came in in friendship for one another because of a law they had love for one another for a lot

00:12:06--> 00:12:31

longer than I do. Enlil Mata hoon. The greatest enemies on the Day of Judgment of each other will be the best friends in the dunya except those who built their friendship and love and fidelity in their heart upon a piety and a sincerity to a lot. The last thing that I say before I leave you and ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make your time blessed and the energy that is expended with the brothers are blessed effort and the sisters May Allah subhanaw taala give them success is

00:12:33--> 00:13:10

know that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah now young little Allah so Allah kumada ylide Sammy comala can young little LFO lwv kumarakom Allah doesn't look to your shapes to your bodies to your physicality, as the words of the prophets I send him the hadith of Muslim, rather he looks into your heart and into your deeds. Your heart is the seat of your intention. And the more good you intend even if you have in practice, even you know you intended to be in Ramallah, you you intended to come visit the prophets, I send them as measured in to offer its prayers you intended to make your own raw or your hedge and Subhana Allah that intention was Prue, pure but you weren't able to fulfill it. Know that

00:13:10--> 00:13:51

Allah will give you the reward of that intention, that action that you haven't fulfilled, may Allah subhanaw taala make our intentions pure, reward us for the good that we see. And know that when you intend to abstain from evil, that this is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala and that evil that you abstain from is something that you will be rewarded for. By Allah subhana wa Tada. I leave you with these words to know if with the condition of your heart first, that you have intended to do good and Allah gives you to feast in it. Know that your heart has a good intention. So Allah allows you practicing, that you didn't intend to do good but Allah still gets you to do good deeds that you

00:13:51--> 00:14:30

didn't intend. And this is because your heart has always intended good. Allah replaces the things you weren't able to fulfill with deed that you did not think of, of doing. And third, that Allah subhana wa Taala you intended to do wrong and allows the one who stops you you are on the way to the hot arm you are on the way to them a cruel and a lot deters you in some way or another because your heart is pure in its generality.
