Asalamu-Alaykum,  I think the topic that I was given was about the heart or the

illnesses of the heart and how to deal

with that and from what I heard it was

covered by sheriff Dollard Reese before

and I'm sure he could do a better job

about it than I can but and also I'd

like to say that any talk for me about

these matters is certainly tatiana or

reminder for myself as well because i'm

certainly by no means where i would like

to be in terms of the nature of the

heart and its state the the hadith that

Imam and Noah all day long on who

relates in his are Bahrain which is

really a hadith that is a summation of

the Islamic teaching and it was a hadith

that the prophet Elijah them is

questioned by gibreel and all of you are

familiar with the hadith but the last

section of the hadith deals with an

issue about which really is the realm of

the interior or the realm of the heart

and that is the idea of SN and

interestingly enough in the Islamic

tradition the the sciences of the heart

were really a science that was studied

alongside the other sciences so in other

words a student of the Islamic teaching

would not simply study filk which is

concerned with the rules of the Sharia

in how to perform the world or in how to

buy and sell and the activities of daily

life this is the arena of filk or the

science of jurisprudence the science of

the doctrine or the dogmatic aspects of

iman is some call it Kalam or sulla Dean

which is the the principles

and they're really intellectual

principles upon which the al-qaeda is

based and that is the realm of what's

generally known as as Eman but then

there's a third aspect of the Islamic

teaching which goes under the category

of Exxon and this has been called by

various scholars different things the

early scholars called it the Animus eluc

or the idea of being Salak and the book

that even a layman Josie about Leland

wrote called Madonna to sateen deals

mainly with this whole idea of what is

Sulu and unfortunately I think in many

ways because of what are known as the

whole Otto Sophia or the some extreme

groups of people that have been turned

Sophia or better term promoter saweeza

have in many ways maligned the sciences

of Exxon and people like the English

have a proverb say don't throw the baby

out with the bathwater as a kind of

reaction to maybe some of these

superstitious or folkloric

manifestations of Islam have tended to

ignore the extremely rich intellectual

tradition that exists in the psychology

of the nafs and in the psychology of the

human heart and how the diseases of the

heart are nurtured and and made well and

so I think really it's it's very

revelant in our relevant in our time

that the muslims once again begin to

examine this rich literature and

really start thinking about these things

because it's an element that in many

ways does does not exist in a lot of the

current movements Islamic movements

although the idea of test Kia and

therapy is certainly a concern the

emphasis is sometimes often not given

the degree of importance that I think is

absolutely necessary for it because what

my own study has revealed to me is it

basically every Islamic revivalist

movement and by the nature of Islam it

is a Dean that revives itself

the Prophet Elias Adam said that this

Dean would be renewed by renewal and

this happens continuously and it has in

the past and will continue to do so in

the future but what I have noted in the

little research that I've done

personally and heard from others who

have done more extensive research is

that really every Islamic movement of

any word that has had some

sustainability in the history of Islam

was based on on really - two

foundational principles the first one is

the revival of the knowledge of Islam

which has to do with the outward

Sciences ya Illuma dean which is

interesting that Mohammed Atta's Ali

probably who many in fact is almost

really by the admire at the Ummah he is

considered to be to be the mujaddid of

the 6th century of Islam and this is

without argumentation and extraordinary

figure who had a massive impact on the

Muslims during his own lifetime and

after that

and really myriad scholars have

benefitted extensity from his work and i

know that recently there has been

criticism allah wa hamid al-ghazali and

certainly from the area of hadith and

people saying that he's weak in hadith

and I think it's a grave disservice to

the Imam because while every book other

than the Book of Allah has mistakes in

it and this is something completely

accepted by all of the scholars of Islam

there is not a single book on the earth

that does not contain mistakes in it

except the Book of Allah subhanAllah

Donna and Allah would not allow any book

other than his book to be perfect

because Allah alone is perfect when

commodity that and so any scholar who

writes a book ultimately will have

mistakes in that book and it doesn't

matter how great that scholar is and so

to focus on the mistakes of the Imam and

to not benefit from the extraordinary

reveal vacation of the Islamic teaching

that he gave to this Ummah is really a

great disservice and I know like Sheikh

Mohammed er Kobe was telling me

yesterday who actually did his PhD on Oh

Muhammad Allah's Adi that the the Muslim

camp tends to be on two extremes one

people that say that Imam can do no

wrong and the other is people that

criticize him and really the position is

always the middle position in Islam that

we take from our scholars what is

beneficial and then from the scholars

that came later and rectified the

mistakes that those Imams made then

those mistakes are taken into

consideration and this is the nature of

the Islamic teaching so abu hamid

al-ghazali called the alanna wrote his

book or the medina and really it's based

on again these two aspects the revival

of the islamic intellectual legacy and

the revival of the idea of takea or

Tavia tuneups and this is why the fifth

book of the Imams work deals almost

specifically with the states of the self

and the rectification purification of

the self and of the heart and he was a

master of this area and it wasn't

something that he understood

intellectually but he was actually

somebody who was a practitioner of the

of this readö or this nastya and a

beautiful book which is

almost a concise summation of his whole

work is the book I you Hal dwelleth in

which he wrote to one of his students

who was a scholar of his own right and

really told him what was important about

the Dean and one of the things that he

emphasized in that book was that if you

learn knowledge and you just acquire all

of this information but you never act

upon it then ultimately you are like

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala says in the

Quran

Masaru ladina melody Nia Madonna Tora

Medina tourism malaria her committee

Mary yeah me too as far a bit submitted

home that first you clean up so Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala says that the likeness

of those who are were given the Torah as

a it's heavy it's away dicen okay a lake

opponent tequila

we will thrust upon you a heavy word and

homily indicates that it's a barren you

have to bear the word and so Allah says

the likeness of those who were given the

Torah to bear in other words in action

but they don't really carry it in other

words they don't act according to it

then they're like donkeys that carry

books in other words the information is

just on the back because it's not being

lived it's not being experienced and

it's not the responsibility of it isn't

being taken upon the individual to act

according to it and so this knowledge is

really of no benefit if no Raja Abraham

buddy or at the Aloha and who says in

his in his commentary on the hadith man

Soraka peripheral Timmy Sufi here Elma

Saahil Allah who devoted a final agenda

that the one who sets out seeking

knowledge that that Allah will make easy

for him the path to Jenna he says in

that that there are four types of

scholars or people of knowledge and this

is a very important distinction that he

makes the first he says is an imam

billahi wa ana Mundi hoja Tila this is

the the one who knows Allah and knows

the proofs of Allah and he said that

that this man is safe in his own self

and he is

haja over a lost creation and then the

next one he says is a honeymoon villa he

would yeah he don't be her JD Leahy you

feel do enough sir who allow you field

over a ho a scholar who is a scholar a

knower of allah super Hannah with Donna

but does not know the Barra he nor the

frigate the proofs that Allah has sent

down he benefits himself and he doesn't

benefit other people and then he said

well what a demoon be a huge Idol a well

well yeah he don't be laughs one who

knows the proofs of Allah and this one

is somebody who has all the rules but

yet he doesn't know Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala and he said yo ruin observe oh

well you feed oh hey oho he harms his

own self and he benefits others and then

so so this this categorization and this

the possibilities here is that the the

Imam is telling us that there are

individuals who know a logic behind

ratan and what he said that means is you

bash you to to bash you room I referred

to who belaying al babu that his

awareness of allah is something that

impacting his heart and it might not be

somebody who knows very much outward

knowledge and this is very important

because many of the Sahaba were of this

ilk in other words many of the Sahaba

were not scholars they were actually

very simple people who but because their

Eman was so strong in their knowledge of

Allah was so powerful that they were

ulema of this deep knowledge of allah

subhana wa to anna and yet they were not

people of fatwa they were not people of

even memorizing the whole Quran or

knowing many Hadees many of the Sahaba

the actual people that gave fatwa from

the Sahaba are less than 10 I mean this

is a historical fact they were only a

handful of the Sahaba that were really

giving fatwa and most of them really

didn't want to because they had such

taqwa of Allah subhanAllah Diana so I I

really think it's important that we

don't envision that you know if you're

not a scholar that that's it you're cut

off from on the contrary there are many

very simple Muslims that their Eman is

so

these people are in a much better state

than people that know many rewire and

all of these words and things like that

and in the end of the day really they it

doesn't benefit them now the best one

and the highest one according to you in

Rajab is the one who knows Allah and who

knows the Sharia of Allah super Hanna

with the honor because the Prophet SAW

Allah I am loved that things were

beneficial that you know in a logical

movement at OE what a moment ago we have

o it allahi min and movement of ieave

the the strong movement is more beloved

to Allah than the weak movement was

equal in hell but in all of them is good

so the the strong movement is the one

who in in terms intellectually has a lot

of knowledge and also benefits other

people but he is also being benefited by

his knowledge and so a weaker movement

would be somebody who maybe has less

knowledge and these type of things but

still in both of them is good now in

terms of the so this this whole aspect

of learning these outer knowledge is is

extremely important but at the same time

it should not be at the neglect of this

path Kia that should be taking place and

traditionally what would happen is

because people were studying with people

that really had had a lot of

purification themselves that this would

affect these people in a very profound

and deep way and through the process of

spending time with these people they

would literally themselves become people

of tehse Kia and unfortunately in our

Islamic Ummah are the teachers and the

scholars of Islam were really so

tortured and and and attacked and

opposed especially during the colonial

period that I mean you can read in I

read in in Turkey that in 1923 there

were 17 shoes that were hung in one

village you know the the what took place

in Morocco under governor Lutie this

fanatical French governor who literally

went and killed many many teachers of

Islam

and this was happening all over the

Muslim Ummah and then the next thing

that took place was the dismantling of

the Islamic madrasah and university

system which would they these systems

were producing human beings of great

caliber well those things were literally

dismantled so we find ourselves in a

very precarious situation because not

only do we have very few people that are

really well established and well

grounded in the Islamic scientists but

also we have very few people that have

gone through this serious training in

which they can lead they can take you

know positions of piada

Omar Omar banana pavel delong I said to

fuck ahupua'a pseudo that you should be

people of understanding before you get

into positions of authority and what

happens in many situations is many of us

are put into positions of authority

really before we're prepared for that

and I would certainly you know put

myself and many other people in in that

category because this is a tragedy in

the Islamic Ummah so in these two

aspects of the Islamic movement which is

one the riveted vacation or revival of

the Islamic Sciences and knowledge now

the Islamic science is really are very

well known they're categorized and

they're classified and they're

classified between what are called

feride Keith ayah for the line or

individual responsibilities collective

responsibility there's an obligation on

all of us to learn the I mean all of us

have this individual responsibility and

these things really are not learned on a

weekend seminar there are things that

take serious study by all of us and

unfortunately if we did not get it as

children then we must learn it as adults

I mean the best and ideal situation is

that a parent will give the child what

it needs in terms of the prerequisite

knowledge --is of Islam but if they're

not given these knowledge --is and they

reach into adulthood and they find that

they're in a state of ignorance it

becomes incumbent upon them as a

mockolate as somebody who's responsible

to seek that knowledge and we know also

that knowledge according to Islam is

from the cradle to the grave

it literally is you know man

the lady from the cradle to the grave

and we have many traditions of

scholarship and use of the alarm

everyone is death met bed was learning

some massage capilla and it wasn't

because he needed them in this life he

literally wanted to increase his

knowledge because Allah your Farrell

Edina amanu when Latino ultra shot a lot

raises up those who believe and those

who have been given knowledge by degrees

so the more knowledge the more Eman one

has the higher their degrees with Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala and this is how these

people look they were learning knowledge

not for their own selves not for

self-aggrandizement not to display their

knowledge not to be impressive in front

of people not so that to shadow alayhi

but van an like they say like people

pointing and oh look at that one and

what knowledge he had this is all

illusion like Khalil even is happy when

he the hadith document about the Allah

who was who wrote the science of our old

which is prosody and really a brilliant

scholar and grammarian somebody saw him

after he died in a dream and he said

where were all those knowledge is that

because he Khalil asked a lot to give

him and now as nobody else had before

him and he was inspired to put down the

science of the metric versification in

poetry the what are called the Abha in

arabic of lines of poetry and he did

this and so this man asked him in his

dream what did allah subhana wa that i

do with all those knowledge is how did

they benefit you he said what was it to

her her baton man taurah i found there

just nothing all that I rolled that I

never saw all these things that I

learned her baton Mathura and like his

Junaid that buck daddy said somebody saw

him after he died in a dream and he

asked him and he said they Hobart city

Shara

was tenet typicality bharat what

happened to fitna Allah okay at kuna ID

hostage offal ale all those fine things

we were saying they're all gone and all

of those wonderful articulations they

disappeared and the only thing that

benefited us was some little Rockets we

were doing in that in the middle of the

night you see so I mean all of the

knowledge once the human being dies

really

it's it's it's heaven and man thora you

know the savage area which benefits us

are those things those books that people

leave behind and these things where

people benefit if they were placed for

the for the sake of Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala alone I mean there's a great

scholar in Tunisia assitive no Farhat

about the law and he was a really great

scholar and he wrote a book in which he

collected most of the traditions of imam

attica of aloha and this man when he

went back to the two tunas there was

another man saneun who wrote the model

Winnetka bra which is he took from even

on casa móvil Ohana and the scholars of

Tunis asked asset even farhat to look at

the book of son own and to measure it

against his which was called the acedia

and a sediment Farhat said why do you

need his book when you have my book now

that's Zelda you know with all respect

to the imam because he was a great

scholar and imam but the point that he

said that his book was left by the

muslim scholars

I mean his book literally even though

it's there and it's looked at by certain

scholars the model one afternoon is the

book in which a lawsuit Hanna with Dada

gave the towfield and this is very

fascinating there are literally hundreds

of Arbaeen at the the collections of

urban hadith hundreds you can see so

many Lula Mae wrote it because of the

hadith about our brain you know man hey

Villa Albertina man hadith e he enters

into Jennifer's Amritsar fokaha it's a

weak hadith that Imam no we mentioned at

the beginning of the book but because of

the hadith many many people wrote the

Irvine why is it that when we say Allah

urbane everybody knows Imam and no away

I mean why is that that Allah gave this

Imam toefield

in the in his or Bahrain in a way that

no other Imam was given and really Imam

no he has an amazing maqam in this Ummah

because all of his books have a complete

acceptance and really the way that's

understood is the degree of the class of

this email

and his life and what it meant it was

somebody who was not there for shahara

who was not there for to become famous

for notoriety for these things doing it

for the sake of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

which he left that would be the linkages

and without shakoora they don't want

thanks and they don't want gratitude and

they don't want reward they do this for

the sake of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala and

this is a lot but the science of your

cloth literally is how because there's a

difference between Muslims and mullahs

in the Quran both ways are come in the

Quran one is an active form and the

other is a passive form so there is

literally a passive there is a loss that

is active but there's also an a class

that is passive and the two are the ones

that the people of tofu or the Muslim

soul and the muffler's own and multiple

Haroon are the people that have been

purified by Allah subhana WA Ta'ala but

Amazon was Allah who flew home and those

who when their hearts deviate Allah

deviates them more and Sophia Peruvian

Murata Zelda whom Allah o Madhava in

their hearts is the sickness Allah

increases them in that sickness and this

is the difference there's a departure at

a certain point in the individual's life

where they move towards increase or they

move towards decrease ward jihad the

attitude Emani

Vanetta 0r2 in Sani when up to who

binocular paella paella hostgator coupon

Apella that the the Eman itself the road

I must say that rudia had the attitude

Imani that Eman increases our hani Farah

Delano has an opinion that differs from

that and it's a very intricate opinion

but it's really more semantic difference

the Eman increases the metas ego part

with insanity in anything where the

obedience to Allah is increased when

Noxubee noxee ha and Eman decreases as

far as decreases and this is the nature

and by the nature of the Sunnah of Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala we are either in zyada

or we are in knocks and we are either

increasing or we are decreasing but

there is no static state in doing

Stacy's does not exist in dunya it's not

in a biological phenomenon it's not a

physical phenomenon you won't find any

Stacey's in the dunya the the nature of

dunya is change things are either

growing or decaying and such is the

nature of the spiritual world the heart

is either growing with Iman or it is

decaying and the way that it grows is

through obedience to Allah subhana WA to

Anna so in terms of looking at the the

signs of the heart I want to look just

at a few things and then I'm going to

open this up for some discussion or

question the even a shot of the line who

says what over 2 min kulli dhanbin huge

tera that Tova is an absolute necessity

from every wrong action from every wrong

action Tajik will fall and multiple

Mejia Nedim that it is necessary

immediately and against every wrong

action and there must be remorse no

dhamma and the place of Nodame or

remorse is the heart which differs from

guilt in the English language which is

what they call access with them a guilt

is something where the the person

actually believes that they are

worthless in other words their self has

no inherent Worth and and and so they

identified the wrong action with the

nature the the human nature itself this

is not the Muslim position this is the

Christian position the Muslim physician

sees wrong action literally as a slip if

one is a movement into hafla into

forgetfulness and that forgetfulness is

a temporary State for the movement it is

not a permanent state and so you move

literally in and out of Gullah until you

become from the people who are in a

state of awareness of allah amoral kaaba

and this is nuts and most medina so most

of us will fall into the category called

nufs alabama which is the blaming self

where we remember and then we forget we

remember and then we forget and this is

why Toba is the act of turning back to

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala it is a

continual act there is a constant

turning just as the the earth is can

revolving around itself and moving

around the Sun that the movement is

continually making this Toba to a

lawsuit panel at the anna forgetting

entering into Hoffler and making Toba

you see and this is the nature of the

moment the nature of the heart valve in

arabic language literally means the

thing that turns it turned yet the

unloved means literally to turn in

collab is to turn upside down

so the heart by its nature is an organ

that is turning it moves towards

obedience and it moves towards

disobedience what the movement is

desiring is that stationary state of

iman where it stops at a certain point

moving towards disobedience and then

back to obedience and it literally

begins to move continually towards

obedience and this is an achievable

state there are people that have

achieved this state this is not

something that is is unachievable many

of the Sahaba of the Llano this was

their state abu bakr as-siddiq

radiyaallahu anhu

was a man who was continually on the

increase all madhavan a hapa these

Sahaba and we have many examples

throughout history of people that

entered into this state of obedience to

Allah subhanAllah to Ana and this is

where they get the idea that hassanis

would say yes in Makkah ravine that the

good actions of the righteous people are

literally the saith of the people that

are in proximity to allah subhana wa

ta'ala in their awareness of allah

subhana wa ta'ala because the muhammad

exon is terrible the lock and the qatar

aho

- literally worship allah as if you see

him paying them to confer alpha in Huia

rock and so this idea of making this

Toba and so he tells us that Toba is

necessary from every wrong action and

then he gives us the conditions be sharp

alkali and alkaline one knows one of you

is for all that it has to be with the

condition that you leave it immediately

if you're in it in quantum watanabe-san

be and if you're not in it you've done

it and then you must make tawba then the

immediacy of it is still present because

delaying tawba is a wrong action itself

from which Toba must be made so Toba is

like the wrong actions are like

pounded interest it just keeps getting

worse the more you put it off and it

will keep getting worse like the

prophets Eliza them says about the black

spot on the heart it continues to

increase until the whole heart is

completely black and this is a very dark

state to be in because then what happens

is the heart cannot be penetrated by the

nor of ye it literally reflects or

deflects the the nor of washing and this

is the state of the man Adam who can

hear words that are from the Quran who

can hear words that are from the heart

and it doesn't penetrate the heart

because the heart is not receptive to

the meanings that are entering into it

it literally pushes it away like saying

I Hadi said that the Kenney method hop

total fear palpable monadic but at the

health of that this the the the word of

the truth will enter the heart of the

monarch but it will just be in a state

of turmoil Hector to stuck a roofie

husband movement until it finds a heart

of a movement

so the monarch will literally have to

throw it up he'll have to get it out

until it resides in the heart of the

movement and this is a horrible state to

be in

and unfortunately many Muslims are in

this state I mean this is a tragic thing

because Muslims can hear the book of

allah and it has no impact on them

whatsoever

yo Lindo BOHICA hyung and this is

because the sickness of the heart and

the only way that the heart is purified

is through serious scrubbing the Prophet

Elias Adam said kullu shay'in yells bah

were enamel algo yes Bob

everything rust or encrust over and even

the heart becomes encrusted kallab that

run an apple ooh be him Allah says in

the Quran that the heart literally

became this was covered in this darkness

by what they were earning be

mechanically wound by what they

themselves were earning and so the only

way that it's purified is literally

through a washing through a scrubbing

we're in the Sabha that to who vicaroo

law and the scrubbing of the heart

is the remembrance of Allah this is the

polish of the heart and sotoba is part

of dhikr and this is why the Amara men

and photography liner said of the Luger

l walk for under Haram the best dhikr is

when the Haram is present you stop and

don't go into it

remembering Allah when you're about to

enter into Marcia

this is the best dhikr that you remember

Allah when you need to remember Allah

and that is when you are susceptible to

the Haram and then he says well

yesterday among Kenan does still far and

also you have to if you harm people then

you have to rectify that you'll slap

that till vain if somebody stole

something he has to give that wealth

back if it was back binding they have to

go and ask forgiveness of that person

unless it's a type of situation that it

will literally increase the the the

difficulty and then there's you get into

difference of opinion but I don't really

want to look at that well how's he doing

sighs Dean Avenue empty sad and he says

that the the taqwa it is achieved

through avoidance of the Haram and doing

the what Allah has commanded and by the

consensus of the scholars MT thon is

easier than HT NAB it is easier to be

obedient to Allah in what he's commanded

than it is in what he is prohibited and

this is very important to remember that

that it's easier to fall into Marcia

then doing the right action why because

the nature of Marcia is a downward

motion it's a downward motion it's dark

at Jahannam is daughter cat and so there

is in a sense like a gravitational pull

that is helping you to go into this type

of destruction whereas the barrage at is

an upward motion spiritually in other

words it takes an exertion of effort to

do this and this is why the Prophet

salat is that I'm said hoofer tell Jenna

to bill Macatee watanabe shahe wat

Jannah is literally surrounded by

difficult things and the fire is

surrounded by those

appetites things that people incline

towards and then he says theologian and

Wathan Envy that to knob in the inward

and the outward so there has to be a

sheen Avenue m teeth are not simply in

one outward form but in one's in Word

form also

and with this taqwa is achieved and

taqwa is really should be the goal of

every movement because the Quran begins

at even I mean radical kita will arrive

Fe whodunit must attain this is the book

in which there is no doubt a guidance

for people of taqwa it's not a guidance

if you don't have taqwa it can lead

people astray that don't have taqwa and

we have historically many groups from

the jamia to the padilla

to the wasabi yet not neva Mia all of

these different sects and groups that

use the piranhas they're proof for their

bitter for their AHA for all of these

things and literally went astray why

because they did not have taqwa and the

Quran begins eddie flemming

you look in any tough fear of any worth

buy anymore fester and they will say ed

even I mean Allah who Adam Allah knows

what that means so the book itself

begins by telling us there are you are

limited you have any atom in your

knowledge you are limited in your

knowledge and you have to enter into the

realm of this book with humility if you

think you can come to this book and

bring your previous knowledge and

presumptions then you will be led astray

but if you submit to the book and the

beginning is submitting to Alif LAAM

Meem that the answer to a d-flat meme is

Allahu Alem if you submit to that first

criterion in reading the Quran then your

from the people of taqwa but if you

enter into the poor and with arrogance

and thinking that you can in some way

interpret this book and Allah asks are

you more knowledgeable or Allah are you

more knowledgeable or is Allah more

knowledgeable and this is why the

Muslims

traditionally who have been rightly

guided have stopped at that point and

they look to see the guidance of Allah

His Messenger were only in the salad

thicker in kuntum lighter and a moon

asked the people of knowledge if you

don't have knowledge and one of the

sicknesses of this modern

is all of these people that want to

literally become Muftis and anima they

read one book Asuna and suddenly if

they're lucky and they're giving

everybody fatwa and things like this and

this is a disaster and even worse than

these people are the ones that don't

even read a book and they give fatwa I

mean it's gotten even to that point

where oh don't worry

yeah it's tough to come back like your

heart is a Mufti the stuff the convict

is based on a somebody being fitter I

mean the Prophet when he said to that

man of stuff they felt but he knew who

he was talking to not everybody can take

a fatwa from their heart because a lot

of hearts are just filled with Shahada

and Allah and what their heart will tell

them is do whatever you want you see so

the heart has to be really in a position

before it's it so it has to be in a

filter estate and that takes literally

for most of us a deep struggle and with

jihad and liova and these type of thing

so then he says they jazz it up Tom what

happened out of behalf these the the if

we want taqwa there are four aspects to

it four aspects to taqwa and then he

says well he had a static super in

Montana and it is for the person of

snuke it will take them to the paths of

benefit and he says you hold Warren in

here and in my hiding me he should the

first thing that we learned is that the

seven the seven limbs and he'll go

through each one

yeah who'd wanna hear and in Mohave me

where you're Khufu some ago an Anatomy

Cathy Burton Mimi tan zuoren kideth

woody Sano a Hara the turkey modulate

that he should Yahoo do a name here and

in Mahara me we should lower our gains

from what is haram : mock me Nina

Yahoo doe min episod he him tell them

what we need to lower their gaze and

tell them what me not to lower their

gaze this is on the haram what is ever

held on to look at then we should lower

our gaze from it because the eye

although the rule AMA have agreed that

the eye is literally not connected to a

kuvira that there's no action that the I

can partake in that is connected to a

grave wrong action

but my Cuban as I said la salle Hirata

bidis tomorrow there is no little wrong

action with esteem rah with continuity

of actions so if the eye is always

looking at the haram that itself becomes

a Kabira

so the actual if the eye sees haram

occasionally which is especially in this

country you're just out of the villa I

mean we're just surrounded by imbibing

the Haram which is a disaster for one's

iman because they agree also that the

the ostrich area hasn't had a facade of

odd and I mean the quickest limb to

destroy the heart is the the eye itself

this will destroy the heart and part of

it is because visual things are actually

more difficult than to get out than

hearing you can hear many things but

you'll forget them you can hear music

but you'll forget it but I guarantee you

if you've watched films that you've got

those images in your mind right now I

know that everybody in here who's seen

films or watch television you can close

your eyes now and imagine a film that

you saw and there's images of the Haram

that are in your heart they're there how

do you get rid of that we shouldn't have

looked at it in the first place now it's

there what do we do this is a disaster

and this is what chef anh does he likes

to fill the heart with the Haram so

there's no room for the halal because

the Haram is a is a we are and every

container has limits and you have to

empty it of the Haram and the jelly

before it can be filled with the halal

and the noir of Islam and that's why the

Sahaba of the Martin who said the

Prophet literally emptied us out of

jahiliya to fill us up with Islam so

there's an emptying that has to take

place before there's a filling just like

you have to exhale before you can inhale

just like the heart has to be contracted

before it can be expanded this is the

nature of a lot of creation the

diastolic the systolic this is the the

very nature the pupil is expands in

order to take in and it contracts in

order to prevent light from coming in

and this is the nature that Allah has

made us on so contraction and expansion

of

and el vaso he's these two the expander

and the contractor so the more we expand

for chiffon the more we contract for

Iman or for Rahman the more we expand

for the right man

the more we contract for chiffon and

this is really the nature of creation so

he's telling us Yahoo Buena here and in

Mahara me and then the Khufu scimitar

one in the Anthony he turns away from

listening to that aha shut up so he

begins with the I because that is the

most important organ and then he goes to

the ear now that here is very

interesting also if you look at the eye

the eye literally takes in only a linear

we have a basic peripheral vision but

it's limited we don't see behind us but

if you look at the ear the ear by its

nature is circular it takes in

everything around it and this is why

generally in the Quran Allah begins with

in the summer well borrow wada hula-hula

i kakano anhu Missoula that they eat the

hearing the sight and the heart all of

these things the human being is

responsible for we are literally

responsible for these things why because

if we allow our ears and our eyes to

open up to everything then the heart is

what suffers so the ear in the eye which

are called more water than in and

melodicas yeah they're the areas where

knowledge comes in but also we're

ignorant comes in and they come in and

enter into the container of the heart

and so literally the movement is

somebody who protects and guards his

eyes and his ears in order to protect

his heart they're literally like oh dude

like boundaries in which he must defend

them so these are armies that were to

use for Allah to protect the city of the

heart which is the residents of Iman

that is the medic that is the king that

we should respect and protect but if we

literally open up like any country that

just leaves its borders and anybody can

flood in

then this is what happens with the human

being the heart is left unprotected and

literally the armies of jahiliyyah flood

into the heart because that's what they

want to conquer and this is what chiffon

wants to conquer he wants to become king

of the city of the heart and this is

what Allah is warning us about he's

warning us in the Quran

don't take shot chiffon as your friend

don't take chiffon as a Nasir

he's his hadoo his reward he's deceptive

he will betray us and this is the nature

so he tells us that we have to protect

the ear from what's wrong and then he

gives us the examples Carrie Burton

nummy Merton Zoran kideth diva is he

begins with Heba because Viva is the

most common this is what most of us have

this is what we're dealing with Muslims

have become people that back bite yes

tell Baba Baba and Allah says laughter

Babu come baba don't let one of you back

by another of you well I asked got him

in a moment don't let a group mark

another group don't let one group mark

another who don't be people trivial

people of backbiting and trivial

pursuits these type of thing know we

should be people of death and so he's

warning us about backbiting and then he

says mamimi

because mamimi literally is that which

separates people is called if sad battle

vain and the Islam is based on his life

that'll vain for us today Havana hueco

rectify between your two brothers and

then he says zu ands or is false

witnessing bearing false witness which

is really this is a wretched thing one

of the worst things that a human being

can do is to bear false witness against

other people and then he ends with kitty

because this in a sense is really a

generic under which these other things

will fall and kideth is anything that is

opposite of the truth and this is

something to be avoided

neither listening to it and then he says

the San who ihara the atacama Judith

it's even more important

not to listen to these things but not to

speak them yourself in other words don't

become that's a vesicle whereby people

pour this poison into you but don't

yourselves pour it into other people

because it's actually worse to be the

one who is pouring this found us into

others than to be the one receiving it

what cheetah homer shut up and both of

them have evil both are evil States and

then he says yeah follow but no woman at

her army now he moves to the the stomach

so he's dealt with the eyes the ears the

tongue and he there's seven limbs that

are literally like the war or the the

boundary and then he goes to the button

the stomach yeah for the what no human

at her army that he protects and guards

his stomach from the Haram the prophet

sallallaahu incident told us about that

if you have Elsa to Panama City or

hadith in what was no Harry a button

wherever to Panama that don't even worry

about whatever afflicts you from dunya

if you have a mana trust was Cisco Hadid

well Hadippa to husana and good

character and then guarding what you eat

a mizerock said all of nana can be

reduced to two things look ma and Sabah

what you eat and the company you keep

and he said so God what you eat because

you will do according to what you eat if

you do eat hell out you do hell out if

you eat Haram you do Haram in spite of

yourself and he said look to who you

take as a companion because you're on

his Deen you're on his Deen and morality

Neha Leela he fell young boy I had a

cool demon Johanna

a man is on the Dean of his companion so

let one of you look to who he takes as a

companion to who he takes as a companion

so that he protects his stomach from the

Haram yet Akuma should be happy man and

the next thing is Turkish shougo had

Turkish ubu hot so here he's covered the

he's going through these things

the Turkish super hot is is literally

leaving anything in which is doubt

anything in in which there is doubt and

this is a mahom of what's called voila

or scrupulousness and the people of what

are the people who leave the most heavy

hat those things in which there is doubt

and then he says yeah motherfucker ooh

well you're lucky she heed that he

guards his private part the prophet saw

the light is that I'm said manba mean

Ally my benefit kay he was foggy day he

come into the hole Jenna the one who

will guarantee for me the town and

what's between his two sides or her to

side then I will guarantee for them the

Jenna and so guarding one's Forge

literally is part of taqwa and this

follows the food because eating the

haram leads to doing the haram you see

each one of these things moves one of my

mother had told me once he said I know

Betty do zina the eye is the post it's

the post sending the letter of

fornication is that the burrito zina and

this is why everyone has a degree of

zina written for them and the farts you

can't do boohoo oh you suck nipple the

the private part will either negate it

or confirm it so the eye the hand the

tongue like giving more our da or some

type of flirtation with the tongue this

is a type of Zena touching for leather

is a type of Zena looking for leather is

a type of Lena and the looking between

the Muslim have to be with a deaf you

know and you can get into difference

about and watch who would campaign and

these type of things

I really don't these are all my secular

fear that people have but the basic

bottom line is that you should not let

her take do that if you're finding that

you have leather from looking at the

face of a either a man or a woman then

you have to fear Allah it's a key glass

where you hold them in paucity heat and

don't lay it the unmanned

mahasin and Murad that a man should not

reflect and contemplate on the beauty of

a woman unless he intends to marry her

or it's his wife

and the same goes for the women that

they were a Izumo rosado's Sita Rama and

Nisa in other word halma city of the

life would hide Ibrahim in his fate

Allah says that it's not obligatory for

the man to cover what is Haram for the

woman to look at in other words that

between the rock VII and the surah is is

not his hour for the man the chest is

not the aura that does not mean that a

woman can look at it is not permissible

for a woman to look at a man's chest

without the shirt on but it's not

obligatory on him to cover it she has to

lower her gaze and this is really

honoring women because Allah has made

the woman cover because of the weakness

of a man whereas the woman because she's

stronger in that area and this is the

truth that the the man is more

susceptible to that type of facade but

the reason a lot began was zania to a

zani with xania - was an e he begins

with the female because generally

fornication happens when the woman

allows the man and inclines the man

towards something that he already has a

susceptibility so if the woman is strong

the man might desire but doesn't have

the opportunity you see but the woman is

actually has more info in this matter

than the man and Allah honors her

because of that and this is why he's

asked her to veil herself so that she's

not accosted by men who are weaker in

that aspect and this really is is I mean

it's very clear by istikhara by analysis

of the Quranic picture that it's showing

that the same with women praying behind

men you see a man the reason where men

can't pray next to a woman or a woman in

front of a man is because the man's

going to lose himself become preoccupied

with something that he's not supposed to

be thinking about when he's praying

where the woman can prayed behind the

man because that she's not as

susceptible to that by the nature of who

she is then the man is again this is an

honoring and we know during the time the

Prophet that there was not a curtain

between the women and the men in the

Masjid the young boys would pray by

but we also know the Prophet said the

worst ranks of the women are the first

ranks for that reason that they have men

in front of them that are bowing and

things like that but just the fact that

that exists again shows that the woman

has more strength and it has been proven

in studies of

Dinah to pupil dilation they do these

studies these people study everything

and they know that the pupil will expand

when it sees something pleasurable and

contracts when it sees something that is

not pleasurable and what they do is they

do these studies where they show people

pictures pleasurable pictures men's

pupils will dilate

whereas women's don't but they found

that women are more attracted to the

voice than they are to the visual

pictures and things like this is the

fascinating studies that are done about

that that confirm again the wisdom of

the Sharia and in the same way the fair

pheromones of human beings which has

been established now that we have

pheromones that are that are literally

sexual receptors that go out and attract

the opposite sex the pheromones of women

have been shown to be radiating that

they actually radiate and the pheromones

of men are obtained through touch and so

again the hijab literally is part of

that protecting the the inherent nature

of a woman and so it's all the wisdom of

the Sharia will be confirmed again and

again so did EMI Athena said I'll copy

one pussy M hotta at the bayon Elohim

and we'll help they Allah will show them

all these signs until it becomes clear

and then yeah for the photo julia

talking Shaheed said but she was sorry

demon ooh and you read and he should

fear the witness of the angels in his

limbs his two hands and his two feet

said what she was saying so there he's

completed the seven the seven things

that we have to guard the heart with and

this is the eye the ear the tongue the

button the pouch the hands and the feet

and this is the way we destroy our

hearts and if we guard ourselves

become responsible because these poor

things are going to bear witness against

us on llamo Keanu these hands will bear

witness against us on the OPM and say he

made me do this we are in charge the

Apple is in charge here the hands are

not in charge if I want to drink a cup

my hand did not do an autonomous action

there

it didn't rebel against me you see no I

commanded my hand to go and pick up the

glass and now I'm telling it to put it

down

you see stop that doesn't work like that

unless you have Parkinson's disease or

something like that where it's beyond

human control and then people shake and

things like that but that's not what

we're talking about if you've got those

problems then you can't do anything

wrong right somebody paralyzed there

that's it and that's why the share who's

Annie is the worst type creature you

know the ones that are old and decrepit

and you know they're still doing these

hard on things it's something despicable

so though then that's that's the first

we're dealing with four things here of

how to purify the heart and achieve

taqwa that's the first one and I'll go

briefly through the next three will

you'll pay for the water at the Y anima

mala FINA be here but the hakama that he

should not do anything without knowing

the hokum of allah and this is something

that we're very neglectful about there

are many people that go into businesses

go into contract go into relationships

without understanding what the hell come

of our lawsuit behind with data is and

this is something that's disastrous we

have to know what allah has commanded in

everything in every single action and

allah has not left us without guidance

we even have guidance when you don't

have a choice but between two haram

things

this happens in existence and we have

also li principles that protect us and

guide us but we have to have taqwa and

we have to go and ask the people that if

we don't know we have to ask the people

that know and then he says you'll fire

on Bulba Minnery ie what hazard in

Richmond what coolly die so the next

thing

achieving taqwa after the seven limbs

and after learning the Sharia of Islam

is Sapiro pal that you purify the heart

men Maria and the prophets Allah

lightest and I'm said that Turia and his

OMA is alpha min American men the the

shirk is more alpha it's more discrete

then the new militant soda a black and

fill a Latin Valmer

in a dark night a la Sahara Tim Elsa on

a smooth rock this is the shirk of the

prophets ulna it's a very subtle shirk

and it's called the RIA which is showing

off your iron ass showing to people and

not guarding what Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala is commanded and then so he

begins with react because that's the

foundation of all sicknesses and then he

says what has it and husband willfully

died hath set is to be envious and this

is one of the worst things and the

prophets all I said I'm said in Al

Hassan uh yeah bullet has an ad come

attack or not

al he thought that the Envy will eat the

good action like fire eats the dry wood

and so Hassan what has he neither hasad

seeking refuge from Hasan and hazard is

when it's different from guilt ah in the

Arabic language in the fifth at the

house at the Prophet Allah has said that

in Lafayette name that hazard is called

the HIPAA which is where if somebody has

knowledge or has memorized the Quran you

don't have hassle but you wish that you

were like him you wish you had what he

had without him losing it or her losing

it and that's called Gupta that's a good

hazard that's a good Envy wealthy

Vatican pietà novice and molten Fe soon

that we should compete and buy with good

action there's nothing wrong with that

so that is a high thing it's not a low

thing but hazard is where you're not

content with Allah's decree and it's a

horrible state to be in because Allah

gave that person and if you're not if

you want him to lose that it means you

want Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

to take away what he's given which is

good for that slave and then rushman

Rajab is different from Cuba because

rigid is that the the merger

he's impressed with himself without

necessarily being with the Aliana hat he

might not be exalting himself over

somebody else but he's impressed with

himself

you know Maj Melanie I would've you that

my lemony multi ebony that type of

attitude like oh I'm so wonderful and

I'm so you know this or that and this is

a deep sickness urge and the prophets

all aligned is to them he said one of

the signs of the end of time is Java

Cooley the Ryan veeraiah he where

everyone who has an opinion is impressed

with his opinion that's one of the signs

at the end of time where people think

their opinions are so wonderful and so

Rajab is a deep sickness and the way

that Rajab is is uprooted from the heart

is that you see who the money is if you

have a gift that Allah has given you you

recognize that it's from Allah Allah is

the money Allah is the one who gave you

that gift and so you recognize that it's

a gift from Allah and just as he gave it

to you he can take it away from you and

eventually you will be if you're

beautiful your beauty will fade if your

intelligence your intellect dies just

like everything else this is the nature

even the most brilliant person Allah can

Yoda Julieta of the Lama he can send him

back to senility like a baby that I

don't want to shake up not knowing

anything and this happened people PhD

look Ronald Reagan now he is the

president United States now he doesn't

even remember who his wife is you see

this Alzheimer's disease you know you

can be so impressed with yourself and

Allah can literally take away everything

he's given to you and this happens

people lose their minds they lose their

memories they lose all these things so a

jib is a deep sickness and it has to be

uprooted from the heart what could he

die and then you get into many hazard

both Bovina there's a whole bunch of

diseases of the heart that I really

don't have time to go into and then he

tells us we're gonna be an awesome

awesome ideal al-fatih he gives us the

source of all of these diseases

habari aza were powerful auntie

loving leadership loving leadership

wanting to be in charge and the Prophet

said learn I'll be harder I'm a monk

Bulava who one man yeah how do you

swanny we don't give leadership to

anyone who seeks it or once he's

obtained it covets it and none of us

should see ourselves as everybody's

expendable everybody if you're the

greatest wise or the greatest move to

condemn you are expendable in Allah's

Deen Allah Dean does not need you it

doesn't need me and it doesn't need any

individual because Dean will continue

and we will all die everybody in this

room like the Prophet said within 100

years will be dead and there will be new

people to take this Deen on the deen

does not need us we need the Deen

that's a moon remilia is phenomenal

don't start telling me that you've come

into Islam as some gift to me this is

what the Prophet is told to tell these

people but Allah gives you the gift of

Islam

you don't give you Salaam your gifts

Allah gave you those gifts and blessed

you with Islam that you might use those

gifts for Islam and so this love of

leadership is a disease and like the

American Native American people they say

that the biggest problem is when you

have too many chiefs and not enough

Braves you have too many people want to

be chief and not enough people that want

to do the work because the chief is the

one that commands and doozie but you

need the people who and now everybody

says who's he to tell me what to do

who's he to tell me what to do and this

is and there's fold-up anarchy even the

family has become

anarchical because there's no structure

and then these type of things and then

what Butterfield auntie is

procrastination and this really is a

whole dump in itself the idea for crash

nation it's one of the things that

fascinates me more than anything else

why we procrastinate why given what we

know we put off the after all

Caliban to head wound and agita to Rick

Boone and I do that what's our own and

our hell

you put off you love this Angela that

Sonia is going the dunya and you put off

the I'll Cara and you put off what's

immediate what's really right in front

of you

Elmo to occur abu allah Abdi min

shyrokyne Adi he death is closer to us

than the strap of the sandal death is in

our face every day of our lives

and yet we put off we go to sleep we

fall to sleep as he will pop down to

hostel and so putting up in data meet

mentions a beautiful hadith in which it

was related that she Auto share pod at

us we've you'll be husband movement that

be the slogan of share bond is

procrastination that he thrust into the

heart of the believer well hey we'll

better agenda who the best righteousness

is the one that's done immediately

that's why the prayer is done

immediately all the action should be

done immediately like the saying and

that you should live in the dunya as if

you live forever but work for after as

if you die tomorrow if you're gonna die

tomorrow in in internal matters you're

gonna try to get them all done today

whereas in dunya matters if you have to

forever to do them you can procrastinate

with dunya matters you can't

procrastinate without her no matter what

we do now is we procrastinate for al

Qaeda matters and we do dunya matters

and one of the signs of taqwa in in in

is that the moment if he's given a

choice between dunya and akhira he

chooses the dunya matter over the the

the after no matter over the dunya

matter that's a sign in itself and then

he says Russell javea who could agita

the source is love of Angela that's why

this procrastination Lisa Dawa Allah

Akbar Allah there's no cure from all of

these things that he's mentioned except

to flee to Allah subhana WA Ta'ala to

void Allah he and then I'll just end

this by a saying of Ibraheem and Hawass

who was one of the sannin from sham and

he gave five things in which the heart

could be cured

the world pollution city Asha karate

Lauren with the dub or reading the Quran

with reflection the heart can be cured

by the Quran the Quran is she Fatima to

Sodor it's a cure of what's in the heart

and we have to return to the Quran we

have to become people of Quran we have

to become people of T now WA we have to

become P and chill our in Arabic means

to recite but it also means to follow

it's a beautiful language you see it

means to recite but it also means to

follow allodynia to do Nikita Ally

hospitality he those who recite the book

of allah as it should be recited as it

should be followed not only do they read

it but they actually act according to it

what a family that ilaha the moon when

it follows the Sun Tala it's the same

word Tala it's Lou to recite so reciting

the Quran should mean following the

Quran so we should recite it with to

DeBoer and then he says well halal

button the album titled heaven fitna

that too much food will ruin your

intellects and one of the signs the

Prophet said after the firown' and

Moffat Allah he said he'd open horny

from melody Nia Luna home to melody nyan

own thumb my Alvaro VM is Semin and then

he said and then people start getting

plum plum and that doesn't count for the

ladies it counts for the men because the

earth of people some countries the woman

are plump and there were Sahabi at that

we know even the prophets beloved wife

so de omar when he saw her because she

was a heavyset woman even though she had

a fee death he said I know who you are

so that because she was heavyset so the

Prophet didn't bother her about that so

it's not you know that's that's not the

women need wait for childbirth and

things like that but not pathological

ways and we should know the difference

so the halal boppin what p.m. a nail the

getting up in the night literally this

will purify the heart and cure the heart

of diseases whatsoever in the south and

the time of Sahara is an important time

right before the puja that is the

important time

my she wrote a beautiful poem

yeah NFC a foamy water a one's a jelly

will let that Valletta to do neodymium

Fedora and then he says well a CML who

you are walk the sahari

leave all of the pleasures of this world

especially that Pleasant sleep right

before fedja

you have to abandon that sleep and in

sha Allah give us the strength to do

that because that's a time will be as

hairiest at home most octoroon though

those people who doing that as hard they

ask forgiveness of Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala and really this is what we have

to do to revive this Ummah to begin to

get up and complain to the one who loves

complain

Allah loves complaint everybody in

creation hates complaint you come to me

start complaining to me and I'm gonna

not be very patient but you go to Allah

and he loves complaint and we know in

the hadith that he actually will not

answer the prayer of a slave that he

loved because he loves to hear him call

on him maja

so Allah loves that so we should make to

the rock and the last one who genesis of

Saudi Xin sitting with the righteous

people yeah you had latina amino at

Apple la well Coulomb I saw the pain o

you who believe

have tap of Allah and be with those of

sip of truthfulness people who remind

you of Allah like I'm in Zurich said let

us help in men you know Hitler Kahana

who where you do look at all I'm Apollo

who don't take as a companion except one

who his state will get you Micheel with

get you going get you energized to be

worship Allah while you do look an

alignment honorable and what he says

takes you to Allah a photo Kody had it

was tough for the lodges are

brothers and sisters there are more

questions than we can ever answer I

would say due to the time limit our

brother has to travel today brother

Hamza Yusuf I'll try to cover a few

questions and with him first one is

would you please address those teenagers

who want to go every Friday night with

the American friends apparently

non-muslims to move his parties and how

haram this is and how it affects their

lives you know the postal item said if

you knew what I knew you wouldn't go out

at night and that's not a joke

because most of the mafia - a lot takes

place in the night like vampires they

they're awake at night they have to go

into the coffins

they're past during the daytime and

that's why they say normal body marry

gotta the sleep of the oppressor is like

worshiping because it's the only time

they're not doing anything wrong and the

people of night sleep during the day so

you know the other thing I mean it's

unfortunate I think part of it is you

know Aisha there's beautiful tradition

that Anna Solley relates about Aisha of

the Alana when the Habashi were dancing

in the Masjid and they were singing

ibaka Sampaguita in Habashi they were

like praising the prophet in Habashi a--

and she the Prophet took her and he was

hiding her with his Rida his cloak and

he asked her a - deviant and Lauri yeah

I should you want to look and she said

yes and then she she said I got up on

his shoulder and her cheek was next to

the prophet's cheek and she said

something about the Aloha and huh she

said that the Prophet said how spooky is

that enough she said that you know I

want to see some more and then he said

after a little while how spooky

is that enough she said no and she said

well I I didn't want to watch them

I just wanted women to know her mom how

close she was to the Prophet so a lot is

enough it's a view she's a young girl

she was very young girl and she means

but in the hadith the point of that is

she said I was at an age that people

yeah 10 below that the entertainment

still was something enjoyable which is

an indication that at a certain age when

people are youthful that entertainment

is something and the Prophet was not

opposed to entertainment really he was

not opposed to entertainment in fact he

asked about Malema for the Ansar is

their level and when they said no he

said bring some entertainment because he

said you're a diva home al-ansari you're

a diva moment allow the unsought

they like entertainment and he also said

at one point bring some entertainment on

this read because I like to show the

Jews and the Christians that we have put

half in our Deen that there's some but

there were not all these dry Puritan

type people that don't have some

enjoyment no entertainment can be but

what type of entertainment this is the

question you see I mean our

entertainment is not like their

entertainment their entertainment is

filled with things that we really

shouldn't be looking at and what they

call parental guidence subhanAllah I

mean this just really pornography from a

Muslim perspective and it corrupts are

you it corrupts the youth it really does

and even you know I'm actually want to

I've written one commentary on a Disney

movie I'm watching all these Disney

movies too not encouraging youth to do

that but to do actually analyses of them

because they're very insidious films

that that actually have deep hidden

subliminal messages to our youth and

most of the messages deal with in fact

disobedience to parents it's not a joke

I mean it's it's it's very deeply

ingrained if you look at the Little

Mermaid it's basically about a girl

who's refusing to obey her father and

what the message of the movie is disobey

your father marry whoever you want which

in this culture means sleep with whoever

you want and your father will still

you that's the message and the same with

the Aladdin is actually a deep attack on

the Sharia of Islam in fact it's it's

even though they don't blatantly say it

I'll just give you very quick examples

the the scene where she steals an apple

or takes an apple to feed a four person

and they're about to chop her hand off

which has nothing to do with the Sharia

of Islam because poor people first of

all there's no cuttin in food and the

Prophet Elias and I'm said about the

Madonna

there's no cutting when people are

hungry so that that's not Sharia but

they're showing the Americans that idea

of cutting the hand for stealing to help

somebody it has nothing to do the song

but the the deep insidious attack is

that the woman she's a princess who

cannot marry a common person and this is

the idea except in in Islam and in the

shaft reMed have there's the idea of

khufu that a crazy woman who is cory

shia the father can refuse to marry her

to a Tamimi

or to a Calvi because that she is

parecía and that is an acceptable

position in islam even though it's not

the jump or position of Maddock ahmed

and our hanifa of Dalarna it is an

acceptable position and people should be

aware of that

of the idea of excel and it attacks that

whole idea and basically again says that

the king in the end says well i guess it

is a tradition in other words it's an

old sacred law but we can just change it

and this is the message and aladdin

Aladeen becomes ow

which is exactly what they want an out

Dean - ow

TV watching movie and even not knowing

the game watching each other well you

know I just about TV I could go on for

hours because and so can TV how they can

mean or Kings the hard haha what what I

would what I would do initially there's

two ways you can go with TV TV is an

addiction it's just like it is just like

heroin or morphine or opium they don't

like to talk about this but all of their

statistics show that people are addicted

to television and they show the same

type of withdrawal symptoms when they

stop watching television as they do with

other addictive drugs this is all been

scientifically documented it's not

something that I'm making up and there

are many bugs the plug-in drug by these

win or for arguments for the elimination

of television amusing ourselves to death

a whole bunch I've read a lot of books

on television written by very brilliant

analyst of that medium and so basically

it is an addiction if you are addicted

to television and I would say watching

it every day is a sign of addiction

because anything you do on a regular

basis every day is a type of addiction

if you're watching it every day then

first of all the the first thing you

have to do is look at what you're

watching now that's the most important

thing first as just a first step

you most people will find that what they

watch is rubbish there are certain

people that do watch like the news which

i think is rubbish as well because it is

just empty I mean there's a book called

watching TV news by Neil postman very

clearly articulates the fact this guy is

a PhD in communications theory at

Columbia University that you don't learn

anything on the news you in fact are are

actually dumbed down people during the

Gulf War crisis there were statistical

studies done the people watching CNN

knew less about the war than people that

were reading

articles about the war so and you can

read an article in five minutes it'd

take you a half an hour to watch a news

program about 90% of it is just what

they call fluff and then the 10% is and

the other thing I don't think we should

look and I'm very opposed to showing

pictures of dead Muslims in the Battle

of a hut and then when the prophet saw

the Muslims that were dead he commanded

the Sahaba to cover them over that we're

not we should not denigrate our brothers

and sisters that have died in the way of

Allah by exposing their nakedness to the

whole world to look at and the fact that

the kuffar do this is cuz they're just

dogs over over carcasses that's what

they are they're just dog those

photojournalists they're like dogs over

carcasses they have no human compassion

for the the people and the victims that

they're taking pictures of and the

Muslims should not we should not become

part of that and I really would urge all

of you to write magazines Islamic

magazines and ask them to stop putting

these pictures in our magazines because

one we become desensitized to the

suffering that our brothers and sisters

are experiencing all over the world but

two they literally don't benefit you

what you end up doing is looking at it

feeling disgusted and turning the next

page and that is is something it's

despicable in itself the fact that you

can see that and then go have dinner is

a sign that the hearts dead I mean if we

really have living hearts and you see

one of those pictures you'll vomit or

just weep bitter tears and problems that

he wouldn't eat house an atrocity

somebody mentioned death to him and he

didn't eat for three days so really

think about that but you know the

television is a serious disease what

what I would recommend this Ramadan is

everybody who has a television just

unplug it during that month literally

put it into a closet and don't watch it

for an entire month and just look at the

change that takes place in your life

inside the house it was it positive or

was it negative that's what I would ask

all of you to do and what you need to do

is really incre encourage your children

and instill in them a love of reading

from an early age because if they

if you use the television as a

babysitter as them as children they will

become addicted to it at an early age

and television is hard to compete with

it really is it's a type of neural

stimulation that books tend to have a

difficult time competing with and

children that grow up watching

television end up not reading and this

has also been documented so I would

encourage you to read the literature

there's a book called kicking the TV

habit which is a very good book for

parents and it gives alternatives to

doing these things and one thing with

the children is you know I would just

encourage like family people instead of

getting together to watch a television

program is do something human where you

literally interact with each other and

just enrich our lives a little bit thank

you so much I still would give him your

questions and I'm sure he would be more

than glad to read all of them that's for

me thank you for for you the English

days of
