from them, I, they have one target, you're in the way, doesn't matter how big you are brother, you're gonna get bulldozed.

00:00:09--> 00:00:16

And then they interlock hands, which just makes it worse. So you got to think, to control yourself,

00:00:17--> 00:00:21

to control what you think, not just what you say,

00:00:23--> 00:01:01

to control the thought, because you're here, seeking a blessed voyage, you're seeking to transform that behavior into something that will equate to a great result back home with your family and your friends and your neighbors. And it starts in that moment where your foot is stepped on, and someone kicks the back of your foot and it digs into you. Someone cuts you off, and you want it to pray. And the police officer we've had a long day Yanks at you, and and you don't understand what he's saying. And sapan the law, it's not easy.

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

So don't get angry. Because the shavon is there for that.

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

The number of husbands and wives

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

I'm not saying I've seen this here yet. I've handled I haven't. But the number of husbands and wives who come together for Homura

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

thinking it's a great idea. And oh my god, we're gonna grow so much more in love.

00:01:30--> 00:01:36

And then he loses her in the you know, in the palapa little bit, she panics and she's like, she left me

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

because I can see you laughter He's like, but the ninja the lady, you saw that four, four foot lady. She hit me.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

And it all comes together.

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

So be careful.

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

Be careful because you came to come close. And what is shaitan want to do? drive you apart? law club.

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

Right? Be careful, anger, this thing, you're going to be exposed to it. It's going to come at your heart, the third so that we can move on to the sacred

00:02:15--> 00:02:24

of the things that you will experience is elation, delight, joy, happiness,

00:02:25--> 00:02:42

and will be then the kefalonia file. Allah says let the believers rejoice in the things that are praiseworthy. And the word father in the Koran is used in two ways. Latifah Why are you getting all excited and so joyful meaning in the merriment of the dunya

00:02:43--> 00:03:11

we get so happy when you know something is good in the dunya that has no spirituality, nothing good nothing of consequence that will bring us happiness in the dunya we get really, really excited. And Allah says letter Franco. Don't be overcome with that joy for those kind of things. But when it comes to the things that are spiritual, you know, the first baby that was born in this city in the Medina after hegira the tech Kabir echoed all the way to

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

the first child born into Islam, born into the Medina of the prophets of Allah Hadi was said Lim Allahu Akbar, wow, moment of joy moment of, you know, excitement.

00:03:25--> 00:03:36

So be happy. Be excited. You know, I I see some of the I know some of you guys are tired. But you want to have that face that resembles the prophets license.

00:03:37--> 00:04:00

Keys he was brighter than a full moon on a cloudless night. So a lot he was in. He was a bed. Yeah, full bright moon when you saw him. And as he says, we were sitting out in the desert, there's no light around us. And everyone's like looking at the moon. It's so beautiful. And then by chance I just turned and saw the product I was stung by is beauty.

00:04:02--> 00:04:11

The profits I sell them was Suraj. He was a lit flame in the darkness of the world. He was bright. The Medina is called moonwalk.

00:04:12--> 00:04:21

Brilliant, radiant illuminate because of the light of Rasulullah Salallahu essence. And it would be him from his face.

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

In the most difficult circumstances, he smiled.

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

In the most strenuous of circumstances, he was joyful and optimistic. So Allahu Allah said,

00:04:34--> 00:04:45

and one of the things that I want in sha Allah that your heart begins to experience is that which counters that anger that which counters that fear, that you begin to feel the joy

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

of the blessing that you have

00:04:49--> 00:04:53

these 1.7 billion Muslims

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

and I can tell you, that the people would mean this room and those

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

Doing pull off and those who are blessed to be in this time in this place, don't make up 0.000001% of them.

00:05:11--> 00:05:40

You didn't come here just because you have money. There's a lot of more wealthy people that are back home that didn't make this journey. You didn't come here because your job is easy that you got time off. There's people who have money don't have a job. They're not here. This people who have been living longer than you have had opportunities more than you to visit have been called here and people have sold Hey, why don't you come and emails and flyers and they didn't come

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

because you're chosen.

00:05:44--> 00:05:52

Whether you like it or not, a loss of hanahan went to Allah carried you here and brought you here for a purpose.

00:05:54--> 00:06:39

And therefore I want you to know from beginning not to fear that you're not accepted, not to fear that the dot you make is not going to be heard, not to fear that the anger that you will probably get is going to ruin everything that the technicality of the soap or the handwash or the scented this and that is going to ruin your home or you're not have that joy in your heart from now that your own bra that you have not yet performed is accepted by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, because you were brought here for Allah to accept it and Allah says, one that can Allah julio de Monaco, Allah has vowed not to relinquish or to allow your faithful conduct towards him to be lost.

00:06:42--> 00:07:18

And I say this to some of our sisters who are worried about the menstrual cycle coming in this happening and what if this and what if I don't make it and so on? Make sure you ask those questions to our brother or Isa or others in sha Allah, get that clarity remove the fear remove the worry all that out of your heart in the flow vermeule tomorrow evening law heeta Allah I've requested for them to have the Attica for shuffleboard Isa tomorrow to be just as a sister session for those kind of questions in chat law so that you have that freedom to sort those things out within the evening later on. And we can mop up the rest in chat and law.

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

What is sacred

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

you're in the Medina are these walls sacred?

00:07:29--> 00:07:36

Is the wall of the prophets measured sacred Salalah isn't like the post itself. Do you

00:07:39--> 00:07:45

know that a lot of the people do some crazy things to handle law. I had a brother in Ohio would

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

take some dirt. You know the sand, took some sand, put in a bag

00:07:53--> 00:08:04

and then I saw the brother was Jeff. I love this place. And he actually ingested it because I want it in me as like

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

next level that's like

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

wow, power stunned.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

I didn't know what I call a paramedic.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

Whoa.

00:08:18--> 00:08:40

You'll see people when you come to hedge into camera, standing near the caliber. They'll look to see anyone looking and then they'll start writing on the wall with their finger. Start writing like names or other people try to take some of the the thread they'll have a little scissor or like a little pocket knife.

00:08:41--> 00:08:51

This little little sister jumping on another sister shoulder and just hacking away and trying to take a thread and law what you're doing

00:08:57--> 00:09:12

other people you'll see them trying to chisel from the stone of the you know the Kava, the cat you know that some of it has to get cordoned off every couple of months to fix it and put mortar back in and saggi strange.

00:09:14--> 00:09:18

His Baraka is the sacred transportable

00:09:20--> 00:09:41

and I want you to think about that question. I had one of my dear uncles back home in Perth. He came to Hajj few years ago, and he came and he goes I have a gift from you from Hi Jeff. Please after Dumas I want to see I said okay, I'll be there. I gave the hope. And I waited for the he gave gifts to other people and then he takes me on the site that I have come on.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

I have What is it? he lowers his voice he's looking over his shoulder nobody sees it gives me these Mashallah Sitka prayer beads. I like prayer gives me these one.

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

And I got just like a lot here. Thank you so much for thinking of me a lot except your head because no, no, no, no.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

The

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

Special said Mashallah Let me hear. I got to hear this story. He goes Look, I couldn't do it with all of them. But I kept this one for you.

00:10:11--> 00:10:16

I said just like Allaha What happened? He goes I touch the camera with a chest.

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

I said Allahu Akbar

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

Allah This one's touch acaba Shama

00:10:27--> 00:10:34

we have this you know, we have this love for the house of a lot beautiful, you're drawn to it.

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

But I want you to think

00:10:39--> 00:10:51

about what is sacred are the rocks of the campus sacred. There's one of them that's sacred. There's one of them if you touch it, whatever you touch it with, even if you touch it with a stick, kiss the stick.

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

You're like, wow,

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

if you see me kissing, kiss me, and not the Sisters of course.

00:11:01--> 00:11:06

Right? Mashallah. Oh, wow. That's a Blackstone. Wow.

00:11:07--> 00:11:13

Beautiful. It's amazing. If you touch it, oh, you could reach with a finger arch Allahu Akbar.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

That sacred because somebody told us Who?

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

Who Mohamed Salah.

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

He told us about two special spots in the Kaaba.

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

And we know from his practice, he never touched other places in the cabinet.

00:11:33--> 00:11:51

So he never touched the walls of the cabinet, except in these two places, the Yemeni corner and the black stone. Now I'm going to tell you something you might not know, every Hadeeth that mentions the speciality of the black stone, the same speciality is given to the Yemeni coroner.

00:11:53--> 00:12:18

So the one who touches the black stone with intention, their sins are forgiven. The same Hadith with the same wording is mentioned for the Yemeni corner. Right. So I'm sending you some effort. I'm not telling you don't go for the scrimmage. You can go play football down there. You know, he can give it a go. But the Yemeni corner has that same honor. Right and it'll be easier for you to get it.

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

It is as important as the Blackstone in that sense. Right? Think of that in sha Allah.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

What is sacred?

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

What is Baraka? Baraka means three things, and I'll end with this in sha Allah. The first thing

00:12:37--> 00:13:19

I want you to know is that Baraka is only from Allah. So the prophets I send them as a human being. The Baraka that was in him added to him is not of his own doing. It is something that is a connection between him and a loss of panel to Allah, that made him worthy of being a retainer of that Buttercup. And that Baraka is in his life and after a decimal law while he was sending Ole Miss Ella moto de la Mancha. She had some of the hairs, some say from the beard, or some say from the hair of the prophets. I said, none of the head hair of the prophets. I said that even after his death Salalah while he was selling them, when someone got sick and they weren't getting better, she

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

would bring out the hair of the prophets. I seldom dip it in a cup of water, they would drink it and get better. That's Mohammed Salah louder.

00:13:28--> 00:13:52

Mohammed, Salah la de yada It was like you said in his final days are in Chateau de la Honda would hold his hand and touch his hand his own hand on himself to wipe him with his hand because his hand had Baraka, Italia Salam. Allah says that Jesus said to his people were Jilin, the mobile token, a lot destined me to be a source of Baraka Am I going to Wherever I am,

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

same with all of the prophets of Allah, and the greatest of them was Mohammed Salalah, when he was in

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

the bottom of the prophets, I send them was transferable to that which was sacred in connection to him, right, the things that are established as relics from him, so I tell him, his hair, and so on,

00:14:15--> 00:14:23

but that is not given for any person with the same maturity after Muhammad Sallallahu it was said.

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

So that's the first thing Baraka is from a lot not from any individual, not from any place, Baraka can reside in a spot

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

in an object in a time

00:14:40--> 00:14:49

and in a season, Ramadan is a season shadow Ramadan shadow Mubarak from its beginning to its end, it's a month of Baraka,

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

the place of the carrabba Jarl Allahu cabeza method and madness. It is a place that is closed. It's a place that is honored

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

By Allah subhanaw taala the place that is that is in tuned in the structure of the Kaaba, it is

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

a sacred place

00:15:10--> 00:15:21

in its usage in the way that was made its sacred by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was the Kava sacred even when they were idols in it

00:15:23--> 00:16:12

yes but were it stone sacred? No. Right I want you to think of it in that way. So the spot of the Kava is sacred. The Valley of Becca makan makan aroma. It's sacred it is a haraam. It is a protected sanctuary that has its rules, and its place and its time. The third thing that I want you to know about bottle cap is its definition it means to increase what is depleted. So when you say Allahumma barik Len Effie s Martina or Allah give me Baraka that throughout the process I set up in my theory, meaning Don't let me have hearing loss or law protect what I have of it, don't let it deplete. Second is what isn't there you want it to arrive? So you say someone Mashallah they get they get

00:16:12--> 00:16:36

married barakallahu lek. While they were Gemma in a cornfield, hi, they just got married, may Allah put Baraka for you, and together with each other, and May Allah join you in Boca, May Allah give you a good life, you haven't lived it yet, maybe it come to you that which is in there. The third thing is that that which you have a limited supply of you want a lot to increase it.

00:16:37--> 00:17:19

You want your risk to increase and to become greater than what it is not just to be protected from loss, but to grow in greater measure than what you have. Those things are sacred to us. And things that I want you to think about with your heart with your mind, as you continue in our days here. And in Medina, when you come to the tomb of the prophets, I send them when the sisters come to the robot, is it sacred of you to try to push as far as you can, because I just want to get as close as I can to the profit. So I sell them, even if it means I'm going to step over people, I'm going to hurt somebody, other people are going to hurt me I have to push and shove and this and that. Is that

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

where Baraka resides, the answer is no.

00:17:23--> 00:17:35

Right? Same with us as brothers is Baraka that you come and you say I'm going to pray and they're older. And then you pray your to Raka. And there's people waiting, you know, they're waiting, so I don't care. It's mine.

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

And

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

I'm here,

00:17:40--> 00:17:54

too bad, they should have come at 230 with chef who told him to come up for right now. It's my spot. And you see this man, he's kind of like waiting patiently. He wants to pray to Raka wants to come he wants to

00:17:55--> 00:18:36

have that heart of generosity that understands what Baraka is, by you standing there and pushing people out of the way and blocking people and making sure I have the room and no one else has it. You're limiting your vodka, you're not increasing it. Same with your pull off. Same with your side. Same with the things of you, you know, getting them instead of doing good things. And I share this with you not out of out of recommendation not to show off. Well, I. So we were you know, I did our own route already. As soon as the first day we came I went to Mecca data tomorrow with my wife and the kids before we get busy, because I wanted to do it with them. Because you know, I'm going to do

00:18:36--> 00:19:14

many with you in Selma. So we we did Ermera. And in our I got for my sons, they you know, he's seven years old and 10 they got a little bit tired. So I got a wheelchair, you can rent it there. And I was pushing them. And we still have two more side, two more laps to go. And they're tired. You know, we woke up at three in the morning drove all the way to Mecca and so on. And there was this old turkey not because my wife's Turkish we start for the Turks and metapack Pakistanis or something, right. There's this old Turkish lady, and she's about halfway through the sign. And she's holding her knee and trying to run it.

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

And she's on the floor and she's kind of crying and her husband's there. And Adam, who's sitting in the chair, a seven year old, he goes blah, blah.

00:19:25--> 00:19:28

She's crying. I said do you want to give her your seat?

00:19:32--> 00:19:38

He goes okay, Baba. So we thought this lady so Pamela, she made more

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

for me.

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

And my kids and my wife, my wife, she's Turkish so she could hear what she's saying. She's spying on her. She made for those to answer panela she only had two laps left looking like she finished when we finished. She made do I for my wife. For me for me.

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

My kids in words and ways that I wish I had made for myself

00:20:07--> 00:20:07

Baraka

00:20:09--> 00:20:49

so when you see that person on the side, and you're tired and you're that's what's sacred, that's what's important. That's where you should invest yourself. You didn't come all this way to do your own MRA only You came all this way to find a law and you're going to find a law through his a band, through serving other people that he will put in your way. So make sure in sha Allah that you're on the lookout for that which is sacred that which will add value that which will give you a Baraka and you don't have to give people monetary charity.

00:20:50--> 00:21:36

It's not only monetary, you will find so many ways to be charitable. If you open your heart allow myself to do it on I owe a lot open our hearts, open our chest and make us from those who are virtuous and give us the best in this life and the best in the next Ola arrivers to Mecca safely with high spirits and low anger and allow us to finish our camera that it is mockable and accepted allow me amin and return us all safely to our loved ones with an answer to our there are a lot of them I mean, now I'm going to ask the brother who wanted to speak to you about the dates and in sha Allah whatever questions you have for me if you want you can join my session in there to cap which

00:21:36--> 00:21:41

00:23:14--> 00:23:38

We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in beginning and an end to send His mercy upon us to send his angels upon us and to make us from those whose intentions are that to please Him. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah who has led us here from our different countries and continents, and brought us into the blessing city of our Navy, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the illuminant city, the city of light,

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

00:23:42--> 00:24:21

by our nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his presence, that we continue to be favored by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and that the blessing of Allah Subhana Allah that extends to those who are lovers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be written for us in our life, at the moment of our death, as we are entered into our grave and when we exit from it, and that we are blessed with the shutout of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment, and that we enter and accompany him in genital Farah, dos sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim.

00:24:22--> 00:24:45

It's an honor and a privilege to be with you. Now I'm in introduction in beginning I apologize for missing the very introductory session of the very first day that we were here. It was unavoidable. But I pray that you can forgive me for that in sha Allah, and that we have enough and ample time over the next few days to share each other's company but if Neela Hey, Donna,

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

for those of you who it's my first time to meet, I know there's a few of you Mashallah, from Calgary and which is in Canada, Toronto and a few people from Australia, Mashallah.

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

from Perth, there's some Alhamdulillah a few who were with us last year. So Ramadan, and have joined us again this year. And this is a blessing from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. I pray that this relationship that we begin to foster today, and that is built on the foundations of taqwa seeking Nereus and love of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, in fear and in hope of His mercy, that this is something that can continue as a lifelong connection. For us in this life and into the next life is Neela hater Allah. Now, I wanted to talk about the heart.

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

And I wanted to talk about what is sacred. And those two things are very important.

00:25:44--> 00:26:15

We are in a city that is very, very emotional. And it's one that induces and as we begin to travel towards Mecca, especially for those whose first time it is to enter upon the Canada, and to perform the rights of Roma, which is a minor form of pilgrimage, which will be discussed in detail in sha Allah tomorrow by our brother, Chef, Albert, Isa, Nam, Allahu Allah, that we kind of talk a little bit about

00:26:17--> 00:26:51

what to expect. I don't mean what to expect from what we see or what we do, but what to expect from ourselves. And I want to talk about the state of our heart, my heart and your heart in generic terms. But I want it to be something that is serving as a litmus test, that you can kind of dip your heart into this mixture of our talk today and say, Hey, this is where I am. And this is where I want to be. And this is where I shouldn't be. And this is at hamdulillah where I've arrived too and I can consolidate and improve on.

00:26:52--> 00:27:01

I wanted also to be that we kind of talk about the places that we're at. Because to Pamela you know, the walking tour you did yesterday, just like Allahu

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

Allahu radically. Thank you for that.

00:27:06--> 00:27:51

Just like a law said, I want you to kind of frame the things that you heard or the places you visited with our brother chef Hasib. And the places you'll visit with me and others later, by the way, I usually enter to the prophets Masjid at about 230 in the morning. So for the brothers if you want to join me in sha Allah 230 I'll wait for you a little while at that as salaam it's gate 001 which is where we go in to give Salaam what we'll do is we'll go and give them to the prophets I send them hook left. Come back through Babel Nisa, the gateway of the women that was opened by the prophets I send them enter to where and I'll show you the house of faulty model the Allahu Allah and

00:27:51--> 00:28:33

Allah Allah The Allahu anhu neighbouring where the Prophet is buried now. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will pray some of our prayers in the place of tahajjud of the prophets lie Selim where he used to lead is to hedge and I'll show you the place of sofa where the poor people used to live and sleep outside the masjid in the confines of the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam those, you know, nearly 100 people who were destitute, and then we'll enter to the left, and I'll show you the column, which was the the merabh the initial prayer place of the prophets I seldom before the Qibla was turned from Jerusalem, men put May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah give it its freedom and give its

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

people its freedom a lot in the amin

00:28:37--> 00:29:06

and we will speak a little bit about that. And then we'll proceed forward to finish some of our night prayers individually, of course, into the rod around the proper show you where the roof of the masjid of the Prophet was why they continue to make the advan from that platform, which is where Bilal used to stand, and so on and so forth in sha Allah, so about 230 I'll be there. You got five minutes to catch me in sha Allah. I'm quick when it comes to that Allah. Hopefully we can come together but even in LA, hey, Darla,

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

I'm always there.

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

I'm here for that brother. So you join me in Shalane. You can hang with me even the light on. Alright. So we'll do that in chocolate together. There's other people that do join from other groups as well. Other people know that I do this every night. And there's lots of people that do join to join up in Sharla

00:29:30--> 00:29:34

it's something that'll be fun shala.

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

So we're going to speak about what is sacred, and we're going to speak about our hearts will speak about what's most important, which is our heart. In the Quran. Allah subhana wa Taala uses three different words, to speak about one place. In fact, in even just one area in one verse, He speaks about the same place this time.

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

Same heart using two different words. In the Arabic language when you give something more descriptive names, it means it's something important. And therefore the Day of Judgment, there's many names. lt Yama, Yama, sure Yeoman, as if a Yeoman Walter young with

00:30:21--> 00:30:32

a palm oil pooper, ah, lots of names that describe the inevitability of the Day of Judgment as well. And half, and so on and so forth. I'll call it none.

00:30:33--> 00:30:58

So that's important. The second thing that's important is that when you give those names, it's to imply something to the one hearing it. And that's why those names that are significant they actually come with certain sounds. All of the names that talk about the Day of Judgment, they sound rough, a POM metal Cobra, you have to read it like that. You can't take Tom McKubre

00:31:00--> 00:31:04

either Walker, it was the shredder and he

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

sounds scary.

00:31:10--> 00:31:55

It's intentional. So words mean something. Sounds of words mean something. In the Arabic language, for example, some of the words that you hear all the time, that are translated in terms of meaning they're actually sounds. So for example, the shape taught us we saw the suddenness, the shavon whispers that's how we translate it West West that whispers in the testament, but actually West was that is a sound was WESA to that it's the sound of gold clickety clacking against each other Mashallah the sisters, they go to the walima for the wedding. The sister wants to make an entrance. She's wearing their gold, she's old gold up Bling, bling. She walks into goes clack, clack, clack,

00:31:55--> 00:32:26

I'm here. Everyone knows Mashallah, that's the sound of gold. Why is that the sound of the sheath on whispering to us? Well, what is it the shaitan wants from us? He wants us to pursue the excesses of life, what are the things that everyone wants more, more of what? wealth, more of Power Authority governance, so all of the things that are us with Sophie so dynastic comes back to that pursuit, you want more of those things.

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

So the word heart in English is an ineffective word.

00:32:34--> 00:32:39

There are three words that Allah uses. The first is for

00:32:40--> 00:32:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in sort of a slot, in a seminar, when bussola when you add, kulula, can homeschooler the hearing the site, the inner movements of the heart, all of that on the Day of Judgment, you will be questioned about.

00:33:01--> 00:33:47

And therefore the word for ad is used in the context of that emotional, inflamed sinful heart. It's a for ad when it's jealous. It's a facade when it's coveting, full of anger, has wrath and hatred towards others malice, silently, and therefore Yes, you're judged in what is in your heart, even if it's not actionable, when it is of malice towards others. What is envy other than an E uneasiness you have towards other people, that is seated in your heart. The second word that's used, which is called all of us know that word, right? was to me and

00:33:49--> 00:33:53

it was called the heart was referred and described as a

00:33:54--> 00:34:03

meaning shifty, or transformative. Or flipping flip flopper

00:34:04--> 00:34:50

mean, actually talkin Louis, it was described by the Arabs in that language, as something that shifts its position from one to the next from one side to the next quickly, because it's ever shifting, ever changing. And therefore you hear that you have the Prophet sallallahu Atta, you are sending them yam with a bitter kulu and it can be a Latina, O Allah, who turns the hearts, keep my heart steady on that which is faithful to you. Even the prophets I send them now this particular drama, it's recorded from the wives of the prophets, I send them as his most main door in his home. Alma Salama reported or the Allahu Allah insha Allah, it wasn't just in one. It wasn't just in the

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

masjid that the Prophet would say. Like when the Prophet was alone, when he's with his family, the thing that was on his mind as he's relaxing as he's just enjoying each other

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

Company yam with a bitter kulu Allah keep my heart firm, because the heart shifts.

00:35:09--> 00:35:14

The third word that is used is slubbed

00:35:15--> 00:35:26

slubbed. It's not just chest, in the Arabic language, the sun is the place that is seen as the armor of the heart.

00:35:28--> 00:36:14

And therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he speaks about the Sodom, the reference for it and what is made as a doula by the prophets before he is granted to him. So Allah says that Moosa asks him to Karna hota Allah color ambitiously sundry, Allah, open my chest, meaning, expose my heart, let fear around who I'm going to see see that I'm here not for his power. I don't want to take his land. I don't want to do a thority I don't want his money. Let him see the genuineness I have that is only for you. Oh Allah. Oh Allah, let me feel with my heart. Let my heart be exposed to other people's heart. Now, let's look at that. You know, when we talk in the English language about

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

the heart, give me some colloquial kind of things. What do we say about the heart?

00:36:22--> 00:36:26

Oh, that person has got a heart of Mashallah gold.

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

She broke my heart.

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

Right?

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

My heart feels empty.

00:36:38--> 00:36:58

I have a pain in my heart. When we talk about you know, you're talking about emotion. It has a physical sensation. It's amazing. It was it felt like a slap in the face. No one touched them. It knocked the wind out of me. I felt physically sick.

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

And the heart.

00:37:03--> 00:37:19

It's meant to be contained in that which protects it. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about a sinful, sinful heart, a heart that was steady and right but changed, like the heart of the woman who tried to lead us away.

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

his mistress of his home, Allah says that the women of our city said God shall offer her

00:37:32--> 00:38:19

the love of use of penetrated all of its veils, meaning it entered into her chest. There wasn't anything as sharp as these veils, these ribs, these everything that protects your heart. The prophets I send them says in the Hadith narrated by the man Muslim, then there's a place in the body, a physical place, either solid or hot, if it is healthy, slender, hell better nuku the rest of the body is healthy. He's talking about it in a physical sense. But it's meant as a proverb in a spiritual sense. So if I'm martial law, you know, full of muscle and this and that, but I have a weak heart. I got a problem with my heart. It doesn't matter how many muscles I built. If that heart

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

is ill, it's of no consequence. There's nothing that's going to help me.

00:38:24--> 00:39:00

In the same way, you can do as many good deeds outward physical acts of worship, but if you've got a dirty heart that is veiled can Bella RA and Allah code obey Him? If you have a heart that is encrusted. Ron is across the rusty availing over the heart, that your chest is pushed away, it's open but there's a purity in it. Then you have no place with Allah subhana wa Tada. For that reason the prophets of Allah they would stress making up for their heart.

00:39:02--> 00:39:06

Oh Allah Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah give me a good heart.

00:39:08--> 00:39:18

Let me stand before you on the day of judgment because even Salim let me come with a heart that is clean, pure, unadulterated.

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

Why do I share those three words with you? And why do I want you to think about your heart?

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

The first word solder

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

is what we describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as having you know the seat moves or ask Allah to perfect his solder parlor on behalf of a salary. What is Allah say to the prophets, I send them and then nasura laka so I've already prepared you. You don't even need to ask. Your heart is ready. We know that Hadith when the prophets I send them was a young man gibreel came in the form of a man and did what the young kids they saw me split open his chest took out

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

His heart cleansed. It took this black dot from it. It was a physical thing that these people saw. took it out, cast it away. The kid was so scared. They ran to the women who were the guardians of the province. I said, hurry, hurry. There's this man and he was Salalah hottie recently. And it happens another time. Before the slot will come out on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his chest is open, and gibreel adds into it light. And it's almost as if this is the preparation for his ascension sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

Allah mushara laka Sato. A lot describes this for something for you and I

00:40:41--> 00:41:03

FM and sha Allah who saundra holy Islam, for who Allah Nuri Manabe, compare the one who has no faith, to the one who Allah open their chest, and put light into their life that they live in accordance to it. It's powerful. For who I know, remember be.

00:41:05--> 00:41:15

Compare the little cost here to Hulu, boom, compare that one who's got light in their life, to the one whose heart remains hard.

00:41:16--> 00:41:52

A lot of describe some of the nation's before us by saying fasset audioboom. Here can ijarah there's some people whose hearts became solid, like rock on shifting, unmoving from its deviance from the truth. So it became even more solid and impenetrable than the granite rock that you see here called ijarah. l shed. In fact, it's even worse than the rocks that you step on. So Pamela,

00:41:54--> 00:42:36

what a nominal kajiado. And then Allah says, in fact, the rocks that you see at times, if they split open, water can come out of them. But those hearts that have no purity in them, Nothing good will come from them. So sub is the aim for all of us. You want to have this protected place for your heart. So I want you to remember that word. Sub equated to protecting your heart, you're putting on armor you're putting on something that's going to protect your heart that veils your heart from the x access of that which is going to solid it dirty it and make it something that is polluted and inflamed, leading you away from the path of a lot.

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

The word cotton

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

shifts

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

and Allah subhana wa tada describes the mother of Moosa in sort of classes. In fact, this

00:42:50--> 00:42:54

caused one of the greatest Arabic poets to accept Islam.

00:42:55--> 00:43:10

He was the most known for his share and poetry, that he was given permission that when he wrote poetry, they would write it on parchment and put it on the wall of the Kaaba. That's how powerful he was in Arabic culture and his poetry.

00:43:11--> 00:43:18

And he says, that as he passed by a young girl, she was reciting from sawtell cosmos, he's not a Muslim.

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

And he hears this girl reciting.

00:43:24--> 00:44:16

And Allah Subhana, Allah says, about the mother of Moosa. Well, hyena, Isla only moves and out of there he for either 50 Allah He fell t phillium. Meanwhile, at the haffi whether that has any in now or do who la Chioggia, illuminant, mostly in one ayah Allah gives two instructions, gives two prohibitions foretells two events in the future. And for an asks the person to do two things that will protect them in one one sentence. I instructed the mother of boosa. To give birth to a child, feed him, nurture him when you fear Him, put him in the water. Don't worry, don't be sad, he will return to you. And you will see that he will become a nation, a prophet of the nation that you that

00:44:16--> 00:44:36

you serious that you desire to see given victory. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, For us, baffle ad Mimosa, Fatiha the heart, the full ad of the mother of Moosa became empty. That's a new word for ad.

00:44:37--> 00:44:40

It became empty. It's another word for heart.

00:44:42--> 00:44:51

In care that led to Devi her heart became so empty in the faith that was it certainty that I would give her help began to wane.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

Lola and Robert nahalat Columbia had I not tied her heart to make her

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

Upon the truth. So in this one I, Allah uses two different words to speak about the same place that has two different actions. The heart is for ad, it's a place that is now going to turn away from the truth. And it's a place that you're going to be questioned about. We said that that's the the lower heart where your your your inflamed and emotional are going to make a bad decision. It's going to lead you away from law. And a law kept her heart firm by tying it down in casing it subhana wa Taala

00:45:37--> 00:45:44

what are the things that are going to affect your heart in the coming days? Some of the things that have begun to affect your heart already.

00:45:46--> 00:45:54

I was introduced some of this in my session yesterday in the huddle men Sharma will explore a little bit of it today and later on tomorrow as well.

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

One of the first things is fear.

00:46:01--> 00:46:45

I've already said tomorrow's gonna get a lot of questions about share in Iran. You know, I touch soap. I smell perfume. Someone shook my hand and after I shook their hand, they smell my hand. It had owned, allow a club, the men walking by and you get really, really picky. You want you've come so far spent so much money left so much time from your family, you've I don't want to break it on a technicality. So you get really really conscious you get so afraid of saying something wrong. Oh my god, I saw this. My phone rang and it had Beyonds to some weird kind of thing. I was you know, I went to send a message to Facebook and my friend knees you know he had this video and it popped out

00:46:45--> 00:46:45

of

00:46:46--> 00:46:56

my eyes and I was in her armchairs I'm going blind. You get you get really scared, have a ruin my camera? Do I get its reward.

00:46:58--> 00:47:10

So one of the first things that's going to attack your heart is fear. And a lot of warns you that the theme one of the things that brings fear. Now I want you to know that the difference between fear and danger.

00:47:11--> 00:47:19

Many times we confuse the two it's dangerous to cross the streets of Medina without looking both ways. Danger, don't do it.

00:47:21--> 00:47:27

It's wrong. To not come to Omaha because you fear crowds.

00:47:30--> 00:47:31

It's different.

00:47:32--> 00:47:42

It's a different thing. Fear and danger are not the same. So I'm talking about fear. I'm not talking about danger, fear.

00:47:43--> 00:48:08

It can be used by shavon against you. Fear is a natural emotion. A law says to Prophet Moosa, who just asked Allah make my heart firm of it. Quran Allah Taha Musa, why are you scared? You speak directly to me. Yanni wise moves up in three places. Justin soroka law says latter half you and Harun Stop it. Don't be scared.

00:48:10--> 00:48:11

Trust what I've shown you

00:48:13--> 00:48:35

throw down your stick, you'll see what happened. You've already seen I've already showed you what happens why you scared. Fear can keep you from doing amazing things. Fear can keep you from accomplishing things that are within your grasp that you don't attain if your fear shackles you. And fear from that which is spiritual, can hold you back.

00:48:37--> 00:48:41

Fear of youth thinking I can't learn the whole and I can't memorize the whole plan.

00:48:42--> 00:49:19

I can't memorize a whole whole branch as long as a big book. I'm just learning I don't know how to be you don't want he he doesn't like me to share this but I will anyway he's not here. factor is Hank senath the Hydra is with us last year Mashallah. He was my dad's teammate. My father was with us in Aruba. So my father Mashallah he rings me up. He goes, Yeah, Holla Holla I'm done. He's like Mashallah. 70 something? I go, hello. Say What did you finish? Last semester? I finished it all. He just finished the whole on memorizing it.

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

You got 70 years to live. You're a spring chicken at age 30. Got 40 years to memorize a verse a day.

00:49:31--> 00:49:46

two verses a week. And if you never accomplish it, your need is to do it. Do it. Or chef if I go to the class they're gonna think subpanel I'm 30 years old. They don't read the Quran correctly. Everyone's gonna know my dirty secret

00:49:48--> 00:49:58

I'm a grown man Mashallah I have a beard and I don't want Yanni I have a standing in the community and I don't say QA and QA and I don't want people

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

fear

00:50:01--> 00:50:07

Key renewal change that you're here in a place where everyone learned the Koran most of them as adults.

00:50:08--> 00:50:22

You don't want a model Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu where adult the prophets I send them didn't get the Quran into his 40 Salalah when he was sending them, so don't let your fear stop you from doing amazing things.

00:50:23--> 00:50:25

Don't let your heart become unsteady.

00:50:27--> 00:50:33

And therefore a lot gives us that example of the mother of Moosa. If she was scared Oh my God, I'm gonna put my son in the Bay in a basket What if he

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

push towards the true either tower can

00:50:39--> 00:50:58

either as an fatawa come out when you made your intention, push towards it with trusting Allah subhanaw taala Allah tells us that the shape on will try to use fear against us he'll try to Judo Judo us with our fear and push you away from Allah with the things that should bring you towards Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

second, from the emotions and from the things that you will begin to experience that will affect your heart. His anger. I can tell you once you're in a harm shaitan man he's on he's on the clock. Jani if he was on vacation, he's back. Because now you're in Hong Kong

00:51:22--> 00:51:28

now through LFO so you don't yell you don't Lower your voice. Someone cuts in front of you

00:51:30--> 00:51:34

don't argue but I know I'm right. I know you know you're right. That's not the point don't argue

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

but it's my I know don't do it.

00:51:39--> 00:51:47

You're gonna wait an extra 20 minutes an hour swindler? Mashallah he cut in front of me mobilia chef leave him

00:51:48--> 00:52:12

because anger in Iran in their own raw in the message of the prophets I send them is poison is your you're drinking it yourself you're giving it to yourself that's why the prophets I send them would say to people let us dump man says oh messenger of Allah give me advice. He goes controlling yourself when you're angry. It's a natural emotion moves out as Sam was angry for a lot no problem.

00:52:14--> 00:52:21

I don't my second time moves a lot of when anger left and okay anger left him he was no problem. He was afraid and he was angry.

00:52:22--> 00:52:25

But it was justified when he departed.

00:52:26--> 00:52:41

He was collected he didn't act out of anger latos Bob don't act in a moment of anger. So the main things that when it goes up that's beautiful. What else Oh messenger of Allah z give me more.

00:52:42--> 00:53:04

So Professor letaba Okay. Don't get angry Don't let your anger control you. He goes yeah, yeah, I got it has any more. The Messenger of Allah is giving you direct advice. Ally Salah. Give me more some something else. No, no, no, that's all you need. That doesn't have control yourself when angry

00:53:05--> 00:53:11

because your words are counted. inflatable hadiya Chateau de La Hoya and her

00:53:13--> 00:53:18

she used to have two young girls who would help her like you know, they would stay with her and help her and

00:53:20--> 00:53:22

and they used to like to talk a lot.

00:53:24--> 00:53:31

And after a short prayer, you want to get to sleep early so you can wake up and be in the Bible Salama to 30 with me and shot law, right?

00:53:32--> 00:53:48

So you get to sleep early Asia, eight, nine o'clock, you get to bed because you're going to wake up at 230 you want four or five, childless six hours. So how each of these two girls are yak, yak yak. So she just turned to them. And she says, Give the angels arrest.

00:53:49--> 00:54:00

And ketubah you know, the ones that are writing everything you're saying? Hello. So it's been a long day. They've been on the clock listening to you all day. Allahu Akbar.

00:54:01--> 00:54:28

The words of Chateau de la. She doesn't put him down and say, Hey, be quiet silent. She makes it into something humorous about the Allahu Akbar. Why do words matter? Because they're counted. They're written prophets eyes. madmen love that in less than a year of leaving it. There isn't something you say except there's one who's recording it for you. So therefore anger is something that will jump upon you.

00:54:30--> 00:54:34

You're gonna find yourself in tawaf angry.

00:54:36--> 00:54:37

It happens.

00:54:38--> 00:55:00

And it's hot. You're tired. You got off a bus you didn't have enough to eat. You might be a little bit dehydrated. The room wasn't ready. You wanted to shower before you went down for a home run. Hannah law things happen. You're tested. You're a little bit grumpy. And then that one little Indonesian sister. Watch out for the Indonesian system.

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

I'm

00:55:01--> 00:55:03

telling you, I mean just Mashallah

00:55:04--> 00:55:13

silent but deadly. Whoa, where did she come from? Why am I feeling this pain Solar Plexus elbow, you're out for the count. You're alone.
