l anyone may

get the difference between the one who

remembers Allah and the one who doesn't

remember Allah is like the dews between

the living and the dead so somebody can

be their bodies alive but their heart is

dead and just like the physical heart

dies the spiritual heart dies and just

like you can have physical diseases of

your art in fact one of the mysteries of

the heart in Western medicine is that

often is disease and there's no symptoms

it's very interesting in other words

they can have 90% blockage in our

cardiac arteries and they don't there's

no symptoms and suddenly they have a

heart attack and they didn't even know

it they say he was fine nothing was

wrong you hear that all the time so he

has a heart attack they say he was fine

in fact I just played tennis with him

yesterday he didn't even breathe heavy

he was in such good shape that's what

people say he was only 45 and he just

dropped dead because somebody can look

like they're in perfect health and their

heart is disease the same is true of the

spiritual heart somebody can look like

they're in perfect spiritual health and

their hearts disease

they don't even know it sometimes they

don't know what other people know like a

doctor if the doctor knows that the

doctor knows signs signs and symptoms

you have in medicine you have signs and


sign the doctor can see them himself

symptoms they come from the patient the

difference in medicine you have signs

and you have symptoms Alamut and I

robbed the I robbed they have to tell

you what it is but the signs you can see

them yourself

somebody has yellow eyes they might not

know that they've got hepatitis but if a

doctor sees them they have yellow eyes

their jaundice and they're tired they're

exhausted their urine is yellow he knows

their livers disease he might not know

that because he doesn't haven't studied

medicine so the spiritual heart has

signs and symptoms as well there's signs

and symptoms and some people recognize

they're sick other people don't you can

meet people like bad Adam a lot of

people don't know they have bad edit

I'll give you an example

and I mean this is one of those things

you know local Liana Kalia anguillan SI

units say to your own eye

oh I remember other people have eyes too

in other words when you find fault in

people people can find the fault in you

but I just need you an example maybe you

benefit from this I was with a scholar

once and there was a student of that

person who'd studied with him this

scholar mentioned a line of poetry and

it was a difficult line and he asked

this student if he understood it or not

and I don't think he did but anyway he

said this person oh I heard that from

you last year that's just bad Adam you

know somebody tells you a story maybe

you did hear it from them last year

listen to maybe year you're a year older

maybe you're a year wiser maybe you'll

understand something in it you didn't

understand the first time at home you

know - that moment of failure the

believer never gets tired of goodness

how many times can you hear a hadith the

same hadith and you get a new meaning

out of it one of the things I have the

good fortune a long long time ago of

studying with he's one of the most

learned people I've ever mentioned

nicknamed chef a bigger wood sad

he was a party in the MRC ciliates he

was ahead of the McNamee Sharia and he

is 50 with the meaning of the word he

knows him amongst everything else I mean

he knows local out of the urban aha

he knows Quran dakara at 7:00

I mean mashallah is Baha ocean of

knowledge I remember I used to read

these things and I go tell him something

like a story and used to listen and say

hello my neat idea and I realized later

you know it was just my own maybe

enthusiasm whatever you know but later I

realized what impeccable adept he had

because sometimes you tell something

something say yeah I know that I heard

that before and you really did I know I

didn't say anything that he memorized he

could give me the commentary he could

tell me all the rhetorical subtleties of

that hadith or whatever even and that's

the way he is he's a deep you know he

has perfect Adam so there's a lot of

things about our nature we're not even

aware of and other people see it and we

don't see it

and that's why I mean we never acted

remotely the believer is the mirror of

his believer one thing Shakespeare says

in Macbeth that God has made it such

that we can only see our faces in

mirrors you can't look at your face

it's amazing the hidden if you think

about that you know Allah made it you

can't see your face unless you look in a

reflection and yet everybody who looks

at you can see your face they can see

the egg on your chin you can't see the

egg they go like this right those what

people do if they you know if you're

talking and some things they'll go like

this because you can't see it everybody

else can see it and you can't see it and

that's what the believer is he's a

reflection of his brother in other words

you see your faults in him

you see your fault in you that's a gift

of a movement and one of the things

about them what the kept it is that they

have too much pride so they get angry

they get angry and there's other people

Imam Shafi somebody asked him about the

Olano how he had such impeccable

character he said I always listen to my


and I took to heart what they said and

then I worked to remove their criticisms

and another one said somebody asked them

how did you learn everything you know he

said I took every person I ever met as a

teacher either he was better than me and

I learned things to improve myself or he

was worse than me and I learned things

to avoid so everybody can teach you

something the rude person you remember

when somebody's being rude to you you

have to remember how what you're feeling

is how other people feel when you're

rude to them so that's the gift of

becoming aware that the heart needs help

is that you can't improve you can get

better and we have to we should get that

I mean we owe it to this Ummah to become

Odia I mean the Buddhists have a really

interesting thing they have these vows

and these monks have to say them every

single day they're really interesting to

have these four vows they vow to

overcome themselves every single day

they say today I vow to overcome myself

and it's an interesting thing if you

think about that you know that that you

make a conscious Val today I'm going to

do it I'm going to overcome myself and

then you have a vow to give up desire

every day today I'm going to give up

wanting dunya and then they have a vow

to master the sacred law because they

have a law you know that their books

they study but they make a vow every day

to master the sacred law before they die

and then the fourth one is they vow to

help other creatures and we have another

we have similar thing the idea another

but I just thought that was interesting

that idea that every day you recommit to

this work this is the real work I mean

once you realize that the only thing

benefits you on your mo p.m. is a sound

heart then we should get to work on the

heart because that our enough ingested e

Madhava edith allah has salah hal-g

tsukumo who were either faceted first of

the Gesu cool

as even with my late there's in the

breath a lump of flesh if it sound the

whole body sound and if it's corrupt the

whole body is corrupt isn't it's a heart

if you look at the world today every

single thing you see out there that's

wrong with the world emanates from a

human heart every war that's ever been

fought every act of cruelty that's ever

been perpetrated every act of injustice

every foul act every fest every act of


every act of minimum every dissembling

Act every act of hypocrisy it all

emanated from a human heart and had that

heart and sound that act would have

manifested the only way the corruption

can come into the world is that it

emanates from corrupt hearts if the

heart is pure the actions of that person

are pure and if the hearts corrupt the

actions are corrupt so if you want to

rectify the world you have to rectify

human hearts because that's what's

destroying the world it's not fuels a

pollution the problem is not pollution

pollution is a symptom people say look

at all this waste it's a symptom all of

that's a symptom look at all these wars

why are people fighting those are all

symptoms and if you work on the symptoms

without going to the root causes then

you're just wasting your time if a

person suffering from malaria goes to a

physician the physician cannot treat him

until he moves out of the malarial swamp

because he's just going to get

reinfected you have to change the

conditions that are causing the disease

and the conditions in the world all the

corruption in the world it's all being

caused by unsound hearts and so that's

where you have to begin and that's why

the prophet sallallaahu and he was said


said enum Evaristo lilten NEMA macadam

and a flock

I was sent a perfect character where

does character emanate from sound hearts

sound hearts enum Evaristo Lea Tamina

macadam and asana I was only sent to

perfect noble character why was his

heart washed three times it was taken

out of his breast this a heart surgery

was performed on The Messenger of Allah

salon incident was light angels are

beings of life they cut open his breath

now they have laser Laser is just light

light is sterile life is not

contaminated so angels open up his

breath they put his heart into a cup

that had ice in it as you have ever

watched a heart surgery when they take

the heart out for a transplant they

bring the heart in it's in ice that's

what they do in a heart setback in

Mesilla sin the hadith they put it in a

bowl of ice that's what you have to do

because it slows down the metabolism of

the cells so that the heart doesn't die

and then they poured over it them them

now the other thing that they do they

bring in this there will be a guy with a

pitcher and they're pouring on it was

called cryonics fluid and it's fluid

that has electrolytes in it potassium

and natural muriaticum and they're

pouring it on to the heart because

there's metabolic exchanges going on so

they keep the heart alive by giving it

electrolytes and what an interesting

about limbs of water is it's got high

potassium and high sodium content what

they were doing was in accordance with

modern knowledge really divine surgeons

you know from Allah they knew what

they're doing I mean it's an amazing

thing because I was actually worked in a

cardiac unit so I dealt a lot with

cardiac surgery but I I just I just

struck me is so amazing when I when I

was studying that because I knew the

idea I just it's at home so the Prophet

Elisha his heart was pure

and that's why the people around him

their hearts were purified by being in

his company because that's what happened

if you keep company of good people you

become like good people you keep company

of bad people you come like that you one

things about recidivism in prison you

get people that become Muslim in prison

or they become Christian whatever they

go back and one of the horrible things

look at this in parole I don't know

about this kind of but in America in the

parole system in America the prisoner

has to go back to the place where he was

arrested it's total madness I mean they

put him right back in the in the

environment that destroyed him in the

first place so it's like sending

somebody who had malaria now he's been

treated you sent him back to the swamp

that's what they do it's a horrible

thing these people they really are

trying to get better a lot of them

actually really trying to get better and

then they go back all their friends are

there who haven't changed here's

somebody he's really changed he's become

Muslim he's praying he's fasting he's

got some spiritual strength suddenly he

finds himself back in the same and all

his old buddies come and he feels strong

and this one thinks he doesn't got a

reminder he said never trust the nufs if

you've fallen into disobedience in a

place never feel strong about going back

to it because he said that's how mafia

reoccurs is you get weak you go back and

you say no I'm not going to do it this

time you go back and you do it again so

this is what these people do they go

back to these places and then if you'll

say oh just come down and oh my god I'm

not doing crack anymore you know I gave

that up yeah that's okay you don't have

to do anything come on just come down

see you know Joey's down there and just

come down and see we'll hang out man you

know don't worry about it and he's we're

all right I don't want it you know he

that could be just friends and this and

that and goes down suddenly they're all

firing up the crack cocaine and they're

all so oh man I feel is really good come

on in just a one hit was it going to do

this was how it happened though this was

being repeated right now there's people

right now

this is I guarantee you the cycle starts

over again there was a human being

that's why you have to be in company

there's this interview of this monk a

son and the monk said they get up every

morning at 3 o'clock and start their

chanting and this guy said isn't that

difficult he said you know what if I had

to do it on my own I'd never be able to

do it but there's a hundred monks here

everybody gets help he said it's really

easy it's the same here

everybody's here is easy to go pray in

the Jamaat because everybody's going to

the Jamaat but then when you go back to

these praise you know you know feel a

little tired that's what happens but

here everybody go is the strength of

July in Nevada Angela a large with the

Jamaat and that's what we've lost we've

lost Jana when share company came from

Mauritania to America and he said that

he knows nobody smiled because it's one

of the things about Mauritania right she

did it but I he knows it he's out in the

desert they're all smiling right people

smile all the time because smiling is

actually part of sitri the problem so

license smiled all the time one of his

name is Alba Hawk the one who always

smiles he smile all the time one of

those lava said from the day I became

Muslim I never once saw the messenger

who likes as he smiled from the day he

became Muslim he said I never once saw

The Messenger of Allah except he smiled

it's actually simpler to smile if he's

he's selecting yeah is a human being you

smile he smiled you feel good he feels

gripping right and then you get these

people to a little moon

seriously you going to the message

everything is similar just try a little

harder on that one just a little harder

like Santa Monica me you'd only have to

seriously some people is like getting a

tooth out of them or something to get us

along with a smile but you said the

reason he thinks none of them smile is

because he said he noticed they do

everything alone so he said there they

have champagne with them they get

depressed because chiffon rides alone aa

Cuban Washington there's a hadith

somebody who rides alone is a chef on

and two of them to ship on three is

company you look at in the West

everybody in their cars alone and who

are they listening to chiffon on the


it's amazing they're listening to ship

on their driving alone and then they go

to work and they sit behind a cubicle

alone they don't talk to anybody in

California they say send me an email

they don't even want to talk to him

physically they tell him send me an

email someone have a sign they just hold

up a sign they won't even say anything

share company when used in New York you

said the strangest thing he saw they

were in a all these cars a traffic jam

and he said he looked over and he saw a

car going this plate and it turned

around and then he said it stopped it

rolled down his window and it spoke to a

box and he said and in the box he said

condemn ovv son and posse yeah it spoke

to him in a clear tongue and then he

said the car drove up a little further

and he said some hands came out of a


with a white box and he said he gave him

money and they didn't say anything to

each other

he said he spoke to the box and he

didn't speak to the person it was a

fast-food restaurant but he was just

looking at it just seeing it for the

first time you see you grew up seeing

this thinking it's normal it's not


if neurosis is a sickness this is

actually pathology and somebody insipid

I can see it for what it is but people

that are out of HIPAA they can't see it

that's when you say go to work and then

they go home they eat alone somebody if

you eat one person eat alone chef on

each with you and shift on just get

stronger and stronger the thing about

chef and people don't realize they Shep

I get strong with heedlessness he gets

weak with Vika the more hustla he gets

strong physically because he's eating if

you don't do dhikr when you eat like

save this meda he eats with you and he

gets fact he has energy because he's got

caloric strength but if you say this

mean that he can't eat he starts getting

weak and withers away if you save this

me on when you go into your house he

can't sleep with you and that's the to

chef as a Hadiya sound I think they met

one was weak the other was strong he

said what's the matter with you said I

have a horrible assignment every time he

eats he says bismillah when he sleeps he

said this was loud when he goes since

like this when I'm not getting any

strength he said oh I've got a good one

he never says this me now when he and I

eat us all I want he goes home I got a

nice bed to sleep in so now look at the

whole world

I mean Christians they used to say bless

us Lord for these gifts which we are

about to receive they used to say that

and then shall not benefit of them they

don't say that now just gobble it down

and so the shell thing are getting

bigger and bigger and now they can just

say their shell thing they actually can

say it now they come out really they

come out literally and say it like rock

bands they say that that we're Satan I

mean they literally announce it I saw

this guy he had a thing I worship Satan

literally on his t-shirt spiked hair and


it said on his t-shirt I worship Satan

and this is happening in Christian land

they used to be so anyway that's the

subject in this book he basically wrote

it as a way of elevating your spiritual

state and taking tomoko it goes through

three stages the first day just ugly

the second stage is Talia and the

Thursday is kiss via and there's three

muffins the mom of the pass is Toba the

makan of the presence is this katana and

the maqam of the future is peak that's

what he said you have yesterday today

tomorrow yesterday the McConnell

yesterday a subset a lot is gone you

just say a stock settlement I wasted the

opportunity today makan don't waste out

to mr. farmer tomorrow if you do that

today tomorrow expect to have

realization if we blow it again today

it becomes the tomorrow today is

yesterday tomorrow today is yesterday so

if your tomorrow today which becomes you

yesterday is as bad as yesterday's today

just say I stopped it a lot and start

over again that's what you have to do

just start over so that's why he did

this so he begin

it's praised that I'm really that

America will have over hey mr. Webb he's

praising Allah super Hanuman to Anna

and then he praises the proper tool I

said I'm who he calls mr. haire with

asthma según el mañana muhammad that I

mean and moral father give me a demean

the one Allah elevated over everybody at

my daddy was heavy as marine fellow

since I'm delusional and what I did

there with the toreador admiral de Hory

sad mother was a possible business thing

are they fighting Diamond evidence when

I out before Elena de Rohan what I hand

where your fossil in dare to have the

eminent what a man but yet they do never

had to had a day Nancy Jimmy at a fee on

Hulu ethically fatherly daddy morality

would Rudy here woman netted over

husband and I'm gonna feel so that's his

introduction then he says a ma public

would be shaken one matter who will

value as for what before everything with

everything and after everything today

Santa Mesa in the law in reality there's

nothing but Allah and what that means is

there's no absolute you Jude there's no

losers and mukluks except Allah this is

resume okay yet it's like in mathematics

who's anybody

mathematician here you have a fraction I

learned this from a mathematician and

the fraction is x over infinity as a

fraction in mathematics X is for the

unknown over infinity now do you know

what that fraction is zero so any

fraction of infinity is zero which means

any existence alongside the existence of

a lot is cancelled out so what that

means is in reality there's not nothing

in existence except Allah subhanAllah

Dada he's at Wu Zhu's and mop-up

everything else is contingent it only

exists because Allah allows it to exist

and it exists in the knowledge of Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala so that's what he's

beginning by telling us he decide

letting you know there's no real

existence except Allah which does not

mean this is a lot don't confuse that

we're not pantheous it does not mean

that this is a lot we don't say that

we're not like Hindus or something like

that this is not asthma or broth amount

and it's also not Maya like the Hindus

call this Maya your illusion you don't

believe it's an illusion we don't

believe that it has real existence but

we'd also don't believe it's an illusion

it's reality is contingent reality it's

it's not permanent reality there's a

really important distinction all right

so don't confuse that there's people

that when they hear that they think oh

so this is all just an illusion no this

is real we are we exist for when you're

not an illusion I'm not a hologram

you're not a hologram we really exist

but we exist contingently and our

existence is only sustained by a loss of

and without espejo Mia he is at hey

Rafael in other words the existence of

the heavens and the earth is contingent

upon a la sky Oh Mia and if Allah

withdraws his sustaining support

existence disappears it's just gone it

came from nothing it goes back to

this is the different dis wife there's

studying Sharia and and you waste your

whoever learns about realities without

learning about the Sharia he becomes

one who joined the to the Sharia and the

the difference between agile and volume

is Adam yoga okunoshima Holly what

lining Michelle theer reigning mahalia

that's the definition an oppressor puts

things in places where they don't belong

so for instance if I take a book this is

my book I own this book and I burn it

you see me burn it you can't say I

oppressed my book because it's my

property I can do what I want with it

and that's the Shetty I says it's Haram

that's the hokum of Allah but as long as

it's a moba Act

there's too many mistakes in it so I'd

burn it for that reason whatever you

don't know you're looking at me you see

me burn a book you think why is he doing

that that's wrong to do that but I have

a reason it's my book if I take your

book and I burn that's a woman and this

is why if Allah takes his servant throws

him in the fire he has an oppressive

because it's his servant he can do

whatever you want

he's the Malik you're the mum Luke he

doesn't have to do everything out of

muscle aha something like that

remember Raheem we believe that about a

lot but we also read he's added an

Rahman Adana are two very interesting

attributes that can in certain

situations they're not the same they're

different he can do whatever you want

them you can't question that really it's

a sickness to do that is like King Lear

says IRA men more sinned against than

sinning he

everybody else did it to him that's a

disease and that's why he loses his

whole kingdom it all goes wrong because

he thinks did everybody else's fault and

that's what tragedy is tragedy is that

the tragic hero never realizes he

brought it all on himself that's why

they call it tragedy they'll never admit

I unroll they'll never say all the

droughts are because they're wrong

actions they'll never say all the the

terrible things happening the weather

global warming it's not mad cows disease

is mad Cowboys disease because it's not

the cows they didn't do that cows aren't

crazy they're herbivores that's actually

how they're classified this guy Linnaeus

right a man's name who classified

everything if you look up a cow in a

dictionary its classified under

herbivore now what's that mean herbivore

it eats plants it's a veggie everything

so why are they feeding it dead animals

why did they do that because it's really

cheap it's actually cheaper than than

grain feed the cows not mad it's the

human being that's feeding a herbivore

and making among on the board now what's

the omnivore of pig that's the

classification of a pig is an omnivore

it'll eat anything and it's Haram to eat

a lot made omnivores how long to eat but

he made herbivores how about to eat

because we won't get harmed if we eat

herbivores but we'll get harmed if we

eat omnivores it's a mad Cowboys disease

really that's what it is don't call it

mad cows because they'll have a pitch

against the film Keanu they gave us a

disease and said we were mad and they're

the ones that set us meat were

herbivores you created us herbivores we

would have done what we were created to

do had they never interfered in this

whole thing lny Allah says in home care

and then home abundance abhi

they're like cows no they're not then is

forested Rock okay

it's a rectifier they're even worse than

cows in other words a lot says they're

like cows but then he changes it and

this in rhetorical is for a reason he's

doing that he's saying they're like cows

then he said no they're not my cows

they're worse than cows because cows do

what they were created to do and humans

don't in the subsea email machine

famously said a cow runs away from

things that harm it and humans run to

them if a cow cease fire it runs the

other way they actually get scared of

fire because it knows by Hoka Maddy it

doesn't have awesome it knows by Hoka


every time I've seen that bad stuff has

happened I'm getting out of here that's

what it says so it gets it goes the

other way now human beings they smoke

cigarettes I was in a supermarket my son

saw this person smoking my son was

looking at life it was really strange

and the princess don't ever do this it's

really bad for you know think about that

that is amazing and he asked me why does

he do that if he knows it's bad for and

that's why it is a schmuck you know the

expression run amok they come from Malay

language stomach is fat monk in Malay

because the Malays can't pronounce to

have so they chemic they mean a schmuck


so when when they say in English he's

run amok they mean he's run back month

doesn't really I'm not making that up

he's run amok so that's what they've all

done they've run amok they're come far

and that's what Allah saying that

they're stupid because even animals

don't do that I'm always amazed you go

on this airplane and there's this guy

with this computer that according to

them took you know 1215 billion years to

get to this stage where we can actually

make a computer in evolutionary theory

right from the begin

of the universe till now it's taken us

12 billion years to get to the point

where we can make a computer and he's

playing solitaire and this is what

signorina there's a Muslim tradition he

said Allah gave me the power to bring

the dead back to life but he did not

give me the power to cure stupidity

hezonia and Devon Akmal so then he says

the other local machine on how we got

off on that yellow condition Somali he

put everything in its place

well you have to pay the enema well

lamina the Oxley he he realizes

knowledge and action according to the
