Habib Umar ibn Hafiz

Part two of seven

Session two

This sphere explains the two testification and their necessities

If the word, “There is no deity but Allah” was placed into one scale and the other the heavens and the Earth; these words would outweigh it

Do not let the world cut you off

The two testification of faith comprise all of the affairs of the religion

The tawheed/oneness of Allah is clear

If someone says the two testifications and dies will enter paradise

We learn to water the seed of faith so it can expand

During the battle of Hybar there was a Sheppard asked what would happen to him if he became Muslim? He said paradise the man entered Islam but because of he did not want his first action of faith to be cheating a Jewish man's sheep. So the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon) said to throw a stone near the sheep and they will return and they went back into the fortress. He later died during the battle.

There were some spoils apportioned to a companion who took it to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and asked, “What is this?” “Your portion of the spoils.” “I did not follow you for this.” “Then why did you follow me?” “I followed to be struck by an arrow here and enter paradise.” (pointing to his neck) The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “If you are truthful to Allah then Allah is truthful to you.” He went forth to fight again and was struck by an arrow in that place he pointed to. He was found in the ranks and was carried to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked, “Is that him?” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) supplicated for him

If the seed of faith is watered by good works (this is the result)

Allah gives the effect of pious deeds to the one who is angry and blames with himself not one who is happy

Abu Bakr As-Salim said, “Someone who looks at themselves with displeasure; Allah looks at him with pleasure.”

This is first ailment that causes the hearts to be blamed

Directing oneself to creation is the second disease that corrupts the heart

When a person listens to the devil then he becomes devilish

A sign of a pious heart is happy with faith, disliking disbelief, loving the pious, benefiting from admonition, remembrance.

When someone gets attached to dhikr then they ascend the ladder of Islam

Pious deeds are a gift from Allah

Someone attached to pious is like someone knocking on a door; soon they will enter

So one turning away from pious deeds is turning away from the door

Abu Bakr Al-Buwara was a known highway man in Iraq truly repented; heard a man tell his wife to wake him in the night so I can travel early so he can escape Abu Bakr. This affected him and caused people to fear; he heard the wife waking the husband and told her to leave him asleep. He went to a masjid made ghusl and found a gathering of dhikr were the men of Allah where present. He heard what he had to say and they studied various knowledges and remained with the pious people; he stayed with them for three days. Allah sent him a light and he spoke when they were discussing the meaning of knowledge. They asked who spoke they said Abu Bakr Al-Bawara, the highway man? Who was known for wicked deeds. He said I repented to Allah and remained his door then he accepted me.
