Allah knows what's in my heart. That's all what matters. That is an attitude of transgression against the loss of Hannah what to Allah.

00:00:20--> 00:01:03

Allah subhanho to Allah is the Lord of hearts, he does look towards our hearts, but also to our deeds. And if your heart was one that hearkened and desired faith, if it was one that had more light in it, if it was one, that desire to please Allah and to follow the Sunnah of the prophets, I sell them, then it would be something that would lead you to doing good deeds, because that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that within us there is a heart that if it is righteous, if it is healthy, Sila helambu, kulu, the rest of your deeds come into action. A heart that has taqwa a heart that has fear of Allah, conscious awareness of Allah remembers, that it will be questioned by

00:01:03--> 00:01:47

Allah is not one that speaks those words. It's all about my heart. Allah knows what's in my heart. I don't have to do everything the way other people do it. I don't need to wear hijab, Allah knows what's in my heart. I don't need to go and perform Hajj yet Allah knows what's in my heart. I don't need to be generous and charitable, Allah knows that I make up for those poor people, I don't have to give that you can't be a person who in your heart is an inconsistency with that which is shown and displayed by your actions outwardly, now I'm not telling you to try to show people that which is in your heart, but it necessarily must come out in your actions. And Islam. Its practice of it is

00:01:47--> 00:02:30

all physically apparent for others to see that your Salah is seen by others, your fasting is known to others, that your Hajj is known to others yours that care and commitment to it is known and given to other people. It's recorded for you. And it's important for you to recognize you can't just hide behind that concept. I have a good heart eventually aware my head job, I have a good heart. Eventually, I will end you know, smoking and going out and doing the things. I'm a good person inside. That's all that really matters. It's all about your heart. That is a false concept and a transgression against the structure of our law as Muslims of how we socialize, and the behaviors

00:02:30--> 00:03:13

that we have. It is not enough to hide behind a good heart and not resemble the good deeds that we see. Now that doesn't mean that a person who isn't wearing Hijab or who misses some of their prayers, that they have a disgusting heart or that they're a disgusting person, Lau Allah He some of the people have great knowledge and religious scholars may be worse in their practice and in their behavior and in their hearts than some of the Muslims who are struggling with their day to day activity. I'm speaking about the mindset, I'm speaking about being accepting of that status quo. I'm saying that it's not okay to just say, My heart is okay, I don't need to improve. I'm talking about

00:03:13--> 00:03:55

knowing Alhamdulillah that you have love for a lot in your heart that you are a committed believer, but at the same time, you must take steps to improve. One day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw some of his companions abusing another one of his companions. And this companion that they were ridiculing and using harsh words to him. How could you do this? This is disgusting. This is hot on this scene is unacceptable. And because the person was an alcoholic, he got drunk in public. And they were really angry with him and the prophets. I sell them stop them and he said that Oh, leave him for Allah in the Alamo and now you're HIPAA law What are Sula for I know by God that

00:03:55--> 00:04:42

in his heart he has love for Allah and His messenger and that soft approach of the prophets, I seldom help that Sahabi put away his addiction, stop drinking that liquor, stop getting intoxicated. And it was a gentle approach that he took. But what was important was that the prophets I send them didn't say, leave him alone. His heart is enough. And that's okay. The prophets I seldom encouraged him to stop helped him to stop gave him tools to come to an end of that scene. It is not enough to just say My heart is enough. And that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the judge of heart. No, Allah is the judge of heart and the judge of actions as well. That mindset is a transgression against Allah

00:04:42--> 00:04:47

and the Sunnah and habit of our interview Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
