about the lower garment of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

the great Sahabi so of a Buddha relates from his father who masala Shadi radi Allahu taala, and who there are a shadow of the Allahu taala and have brought out to us a sheet or a shawl that had patches on it
and a lower garment that was very coarse or thick, it was a rough material. And she said that the soul of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken while he was wearing these two garments.
So of course, this is a shadow the Allahu taala and her talking about the clothes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was wearing on the day that he breathes his he breathed his last he passed away. And he was wearing these two garments of course, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent
about the last week in the home of Chateau de Allahu taala. On her since he fell ill, he sought permission from the rest of his family to be able to stay there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day that he passed away, I shadowed the Allahu taala and I said, the prophets Allah, someone was wearing some of the most simplest of his clothing. The Tsar which is described as the EHR is, again a sheet and open cloth and the profits a lovely smooth, wrap it around his waist, and it was made out of a very thick, coarse material and the purpose for that the objective, or the reason for that was that it's very durable. And the profits are lovely. Some of the shawl that he
was wearing over his upper body actually had patches in it. The scholars talk about the fact that the profits a lot he said him did have other types of garments and clothing. Not a lot, but nevertheless, he did have some other types of garments and clothing and the profits a lot he said them because this was the time closer to his death. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam preferred to wear something that was a little bit more simpler and more worn out

In this particular narration, assure us even su Lang Rahim Allah hota Allah. He says that I heard my aunt and his aunt's name was Rome, Roman.
He says I heard from my room and she relates that she was relating from her uncle and her uncle's name was obey w Khalid. obey them no Khalid radi Allahu taala and who
are Bateman? Khalid radi Allahu taala and who says that I was walking in Medina, er, while I was walking Medina, all of a sudden there was a person behind me. And he was saying that lift up your pants, lift up your lower garment, because it is more God conscious meaning that it is more spiritually sound. And it is also better for the
durability of the garment.
And I saw all of a sudden that it was a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I said, O Messenger of Allah, this is a very old worn out garment.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, do you not find within me an example or a role model for you? And so I looked and I saw that his lower garments was to the middle of his shin.
Now, the first and foremost, of course, this has always been Khalid radi Allahu talana, relating that he was walking in the streets of Medina and the prophets a lot of sun was behind him. And it kind of caught him off guard. So this tells you first and foremost that as we've talked about, before the Prophet of Allah salon he said, I'm wasn't the type of person to walk around with some, you know,
security service, or with some Royal Guard, or with some entourage or posse, the profits, a lot of them didn't walk around in that manner. The prophets a lot of them was a very humble, humble person. And so a lot of times the prophets a lot of them would get up and just leave his home without notifying anyone meaning that not create a stir not create a commotion. Right. And so, the prophets a lot, he was very humble in that regard. This also tells you a lot of times, well, somebody could counter that by saying that well the reason why a lot of times whether they be leaders or they be prominent people, the reason why they require you know some type of protection and people to walk
around them is for the purpose of safety and to some degree that could be valid. And so, on the other hand, while this shows you the humility and the simplicity of the Messenger of Allah syllogism, this also goes to show you the safety and the tranquility of the city of Medina that the type of place the profits along the center might establish the type of community at established that anyone could walk around in Medina without being perturbed without being disturbed. And so that was something very particular about the city of Medina and something the profits a lot so I went to great lengths to ensure and to protect and to preserve within Medina itself.
So now of course, he hears somebody behind him saying lift up your what we would say lift up your pants,
and so meaning lift up that lower garment. And he says that for inner who our avatar at Comic Con from Tacoma. So the profits a lot he said, um, is saying, but there is a little bit of an issue here and I'd like to take this opportunity to explain it. The word hutzpah in the Arabic language comes from Yes, it comes from taqwa. But the root of the word duck law in and of itself has come in and of itself, it comes from the meaning of to protect. So the profits a lot of these some very well could have been saying that this is more protective for your clothing sock, okay? This is more protective for you, meaning you won't pick up any type of dirt or you won't pick up any type of bugs or
something else like that. So there is that linguistic possibility. That being said, there is another narration. What reaffirms that meaning is that there is another narration, there's another rewire that is mentioned by some of the commentators that in some of the nusach. In some of the versions of him, I'm Timothy Shama in the word instead of scar says the word unka. For inner Who? Mina, Natalia right. And so, nothing in the Arabic language of course, also means clean. It means clean.
All right, so.
So based off of that, we can extrapolate that what the prophets a lot of them could have also been referring to, is the fact that this is cleaner for your clothing. It will protect your clothing from dirt and dust, or even something that jassa even the concept of protecting yourself is also from an agenda that there might be some impurity, some filth that is on the ground. Of course, it's open streets, particularly at that time. So there's a everyone has animals, whether they be horses or camels and goats and sheep and things like that. So they're very likely are a lot of animal droppings on the street as well. So the prophets a lot of them saying is saying this is a pod, this
is more cleaner, and this is better, this is cleaner.
And then he says what up call of God in the Arabic language of course.
means to for something to remain Bacall. And so when you say apartheid means longer lasting more, it'll give it longer life that basically we know about this that anybody who has experienced this when your pants are kind of hanging down or you know, scraping against the ground, they get torn up, they get fettered at the bottom. And so the profits, a lot of them is saying this is better for the life of your garments as well. And However, at the same time, we should affirm that the profits a lot he said them could also be referring to a scar, which comes from tequila, which means this is more God conscious meaning this is more appropriate in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
what's the most likely is that the prophets a lot of the time was laying all of the above all at the same time jalama or kelim, the gift of the prophets allowed him to speak at multiple levels. So he says when I turned around, I saw all of a sudden meaning for either for either mufa so he says that all of a sudden it was a messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. And so I said or messenger of God, yet Rasul Allah, he had forgotten malha that it is a worn out or a
it is a worn out garment. Now there's a couple of different meanings that are given for male hat. Some say that literally coming from like Minish. So there was a particular type of garment that was black, and then it would have kind of like some white dots or white specks in it. And the thing about that garment was that
that was the garment that they used to like to wear while doing like physical labor and physical work. Right. So it was like our equivalent of maybe like somebody would consider jeans or something like that that's more durable, that you can work in that won't get worn out so easily that this was that type of a garment because it wasn't like colored where it would get filthy if you were working in the fields or something and it wasn't pure black either. To again to the point where dust would start to show so it was white kind of sprinkle it was black sprinkled in with some whites, and it was very good for covering up you know, just wear and tear that clothing would receive while doing
work. So are Bateman. Khalid Ali Allahu Jelani by saying that this is that type of a garment he's saying Don't worry, he's nothing special. These aren't my nice clothes, that I'm worried about them getting dirty or empty. This is why some of the scholars and the commentators say that the Prophet of Allah Salafi cinema actually did mean that this is more cleaner for your clothing when he said I'm not necessarily talking about the concept of like piety or God consciousness, because then the responses are made in Hollywood make no sense. He's saying this is more God conscious for you. And he's saying Oh, don't worry about it's a worn out shawl What? That doesn't make any sense. Right. So
even though he could have been responding to the upcard part, but it just it's unimaginable and unfathomable from the Sahaba of the Allahu taala on him that the prophets a lot of them says something to them, and then they completely ignore it or dismiss it. Right that like you. it's inconceivable Aveda moku All right, so for that reason, the many of the commentators on this hadith have taken the position that what the prophet SAW isn't met by God was uncovered that this is better in terms of the purity of the clothing you won't get in jassa any filth or an impurity on your clothing will Lakota Allah Allah but nevertheless he responds by saying Don't worry about it. It's
nothing special there just my work clothes.
But the profits a lot he said, I'm said that don't you find a role model or a an example in me, and then he says, I looked and I saw that his lower garment was to the middle of his shin. So again, the profits a lot of whom could have been saying I understand your intent, and what you're saying, but even then, it is best for you to keep it higher.
The third Hadeeth
had death as a way to lunasin Bala Hadassah Abdullah even on mobarak on Musa ignore obey da on Jezebel, Salamat Aqua and OBE.
Kala cannot Earth Manu afonya tassilo illa and Saffy, Saffy. wirkkala hakkoda qanat is arrow to sahibi. Yani Anna BIA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
sentimental Aqua radi Allahu taala anhu This is a very notable again Sahabi a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
a young unsavoury Sahabi. what's known about him is that obviously he was very brave. He was an expert Archer. He participated in about seven of the campaigns with the prophets, a lot of them and he was also there at the Treaty of Abia and he was amongst the individuals who gave the bay bay I totally one, the oath of allegiance that Allah was pleased with under the shade of the tree that Allah speaks about in the Quran, who is amongst them as a very fascinating story. sodomites laqua were one time
There were some individuals who basically stole some camels, from Medina and Selma to Malacca in by himself. He was very young at this time, he was like a teenager. And he was an expert Archer. So he started, they stole some horses, excuse me, they stole some horses, and they got on the horses and they were running, and settlements and Eloqua seeing that they were stealing these horses started running after them, and basically was keeping up with them. And he was shooting arrows as he was running while he was running. And he was used to shoot arrows so quickly, that they couldn't, they weren't, they didn't turn around to see what it was. They just tried to keep running faster. They
just assumed that there was like a whole group of men riding horses shooting arrows at them, until they reach up on the hill. And it was Selma or the Allahu taala by himself and that's when they were kind of like, Are you kidding? Right? And so then they were like, Alright, why don't we just take care of this kids? He's our timeout. Hold on. says you do see that you're like, whatever distance you know maybe like 50 yards or whatever. You do see that you're about 50 yards 30 yards whatever away from me said yeah, he said you do know all of you will be dead before you reach me.
So then they they said Okay, nevermind, they left the horses and
they left and he walks back to Medina holding all these horses and then the profits a lot he's one was informed about him, and the profits all of a sudden praised him and thanked him. So this is a little awkward or the Allahu taala and who he says that Arthur random No, I found out the Allahu taala and who used to wear his lower garments to the point where it would fall to the middle of his shins and knees use and he said that this is how the lower garments of my friend was. And of course he was referring to the prophets Allah, Allah.
Allah had the Tanaka Chiba para Hadassah Buddha was an obese heart and Muslim evening was new there on holiday particularly among tala aka Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ah be Abdullah ting bialetti Sati OSA Ocala southie for Holla Holla mo do hatha Modi is alpha in a beta for us fell for in a beta for LA Haqqani is Artefill kabang
has a particularly Amano de la Catalano relates
that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam grabbed my calf. or in another narration, one of the transmitters of this narration had a little bit of doubt whether they thought of the Allahu taala who said that the prophets Allah some grabbed my calf, or he grabbed his own calf, and then pointing to the calf, regardless of whether it was for the first calf or his own the Prophet system's own calf. He said that this is the place to wear the pants, or the lower garments should fall. And he says that if that's not okay with you find a beta usually very innovative, that's not okay, then a little bit lower. And if that's not even Okay, then the pants have no rights upon the
ankle, meaning that the pants should not touch the ankle should not fall below the ankles. So this is how they fundamentally Amano the Allahu Tanana relating that the prophets a lot of these Mandala in literally in the Arabic language means kind of like flesh. And so he's saying he grabbed the flesh of my shin, and what that's what the Arabs who basically referred to the calf muscle, so he said, the prophet doesn't grab my calf or he grabbed his own calf. And that he pointed to that and said that this is where it's ideal for your pants to fall to as the lower part of the pants. And he says that in so normally the word above is kind of a very strong word means to reject to deny,
right, but that's not how it's being used here in conversation. A lot of times it was used as an if that's not okay or that doesn't suffice for you. Then he said then lower than that, but he said and then lower than that a little bit lower than that, right above, maybe halfway between the middle of the shin and the ankle. Then he said then make sure that it does not go below the ankles. So this was the advice of the prophets a lot he sent them
to her de familia man wrote the Allahu taala and who
the only other thing I wanted to point out in this particular narration before I comment on the issue altogether, is that one of the narrator's Muslim maybe we'll need his name. His father's name is narrated both both as Naveed and new they'd in different manuscripts of the text. So this again brings to light the issue that we've talked about before and that is about where the bottom where the for men first and foremost This is in regards to mental mentioned the issue about women in a minute, but in regards to men, it talks about how low should one
pants B. And so there's again the narrations where the profits a lot of these items as might as well have been if in our very strong narrations in the, in the hadith of Sahih Bukhari that what is below the ankle is in fire. There is
an However, there's a little bit of commentary on that, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said waylynn kabhi Minh and now that the prophets Allah some saw some people making will do and they were not washing the backs in the bottom of their feet properly. And the prophets a lot of the Some said Waverly la kabhi Mina now that Be careful because the heels can be burned in the fire due to not being washed properly. So there's some commentary that these types of narrations that only just say my elemental cabining and now that the prophets along with him is alluding to the same idea that make sure that when you do will do you wash the lower part below your ankles, your heels properly.
However, that still doesn't change the fact that there are explicit narrations where the prophets a lot he said, I'm Munna anassa on his belly,
lol gabin, that the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
he told people not to let their pants go below their ankles, he told men not to let their pants cold below the ankles. And as I explained earlier that we have the issue, there's a difference of opinion. Classically speaking, traditionally speaking, scholars have been of the opinion that this is something that at the very least is mcru severely disliked for men. And so an effort should be made to try to keep the pants at the very least to the top of the ankle. Now, at the same time, there are some scholars both classic and contemporary, who also point to the fact that we have an understanding and will soon fix that whenever there is a ruling there is usually in a law or a cause
of that ruling. And the most obvious a law that can never be found for a ruling is one that is stated by the prophets a lot he said I'm or by the Koran for that matter itself. And in that narration, that interaction with Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu taala, no worries explicitly asks the prophets a lot. He says that what about my pants that are below my ankles a lot of the time, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that you're not doing it out of arrogance or pride, you're not doing it to boast or to brag. And so the prophets, a lot of these them basically explicitly states that that was a reason why he had prohibited it. And so the same thing will apply in our situation where
now it doesn't become so much of a standardized ruling. But it becomes more of a personal call of an individual, that if it does start to contribute to a person's arrogance, or a person become self conscious, if their pants are ever rolled up or something like that, then they can know that maybe there's a little bit of an issue or a problem here it is somehow feeding into my you know, ego or my perception of myself. versus if somebody just casually puts on a pair of pants or picks up a pair of pants off the rack like just buys a pair of pants, and they fall maybe just a little bit below the ankle, but there's not particularly an issue of arrogance or anything like that pertaining to it,
then it will not be problematic. Will la huhtala mobisaver
the next chapter bubble my Jaffe
Misha t Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is the chapter about the
style of walking of the Messenger of Allah Salafi somehow did he used to walk and again, why is it being mentioned here? very obvious after talking about kind of the clothes of the prophets a lot he set up, and particularly the narrations referring to where and how his pants fell. So naturally, your gaze was toward would fall on his feet. So now he's describing how would you see the feet of the promises of moving? How would he walk? We've seen a lot of these narrations or what it's talking about before, the first narration is a little bit more unique. So inshallah I'll add a little extra commentary in regards to that one. The first Hadeeth of this chapter calahonda. Potato Chip, no sir
Eden, Cala de la jolla and Eunice unabie hooray de terre de la huhtala Anoka Mara a to J and x and I mean Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and a sham surgery fee what he wallarah I had an Astra fee Misha t he Min rasulillah he salatu salam
wa la who were in in La La nugee he do and fusina were in the hula hoop daddy thing.
Abu huraira the Allahu taala and who says
I never saw anything more beautiful than the Messenger of Allah Salafi center.
It was as if the sun was moving in his face.
And I never saw anyone who walked more swiftly or quicker than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. It was as if the Earth would fold for him. And we used to struggle
We used to find ourselves meaning we used to struggle to keep up with him. And he wasn't even trying.
So now to explain some of the concepts and some of the language that he avoided or the local talent he was using, first and foremost, something that's very fascinating. He says model a two lateral A to A and a center or Model A to excuse me Model A to J and Oksana Manasa Lai sallallahu alayhi wa sallam your books should say one out of a two it should say model a two incorrect that
just my model a tu.
So he says, I never saw anything more beautiful than a messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam sentence. That's what's just remarkable. That's it. There's no qualifiers. I never saw anything more beautiful than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, at this time, or at that time in this situation that no, no, no, I just never saw anything more beautiful than the Messenger of Allah, Allah, the cinema, period.
Fully stop. All right, then he says that it was as if the sun was moving in his face. Now what that basically means is that his face was more radiant than the sun. His face was more radiant than the sun. And he says, and I never saw anyone who walked more swiftly, more quickly than the Messenger of Allah syllogism It was as if An Na Ma due to Allah who it was as if the earth was folding for him. Right. So basically, in the Arabic language again, to understand this expression, in the Arabic language, they when something moves very, very quickly, they talk about the earth basically folding.
They talk about the earth folding. You're covering a lot of ground very, very quickly. So he said it was like the Earth would fold for him. You still walk so quickly. And he said we used to have to work Reese after get in the military one personnel a new g one personnel a new terrible, like we used to get exhausted
trying to keep up with him. And he says we're in the hula hoop anything exterior off in the Arabic language means that basically trying to do something,
trying to do something when the hula VEDA looked anything levator mobile him like he wasn't trying to he didn't intend to walk fast. He wasn't trying to like leave us behind. But we just couldn't keep up with him. And so what's the what's the purpose of mentioning that a few different things, the benefits of mentioning that, number one, first and foremost, we're going to see another narration as well. I'll go ahead and just kind of mention it here very quickly, that first and foremost tells you the profits a lot of the same walking very quickly and swiftly like this. Number one was the profits, a lot of them didn't like shuffle his feet, he didn't drag his feet, he didn't
just kind of like Shuffle Along, aimlessly. Right. So that wasn't the way the process on walk the promises him didn't walk, like just someone who had nowhere better to be or nothing better to do, just kind of shuffling around wasting time, that wasn't the profit for them. The other thing is that this physically also shows the health of the profits a lot so that the profits a lot of these own was a very active healthy person used to walk a lot, right, the process was quite free using the habit of walking around. So even if it was a little bit of a distance, where easily he could have written at the very least the donkey to go from one side of Medina to the other the process of used
to prefer to walk. So a very healthy active person exercising basically. And then the third thing that it also tells you is again, like I mentioned before, the prophets a lot he said them was an extremely efficient and productive person.
That the prophets a lot he said them you know, something that's very fascinating, right? Is that when we talk about being busy, when we talk about, you know, being productive, and we're very busy, and we have a lot going on, what's very fascinating is that we waste a lot of time, just, you know, with ourselves so to speak, we waste a lot of time in and of ourselves, we'll walk around, as if there's nothing better to do shuffling around, right wasting time. And we'll do those things and then when somebody who is deserving of our time actually does request our time, then all of a sudden we're very busy. I'm very busy, I can't talk. Very busy, can't
have a lot of work I have to do.
Right. And that that type of you know, back then like a pastime, or just kind of wasting time with something like just kind of shuffling around, kicking along rocks, just kind of walking around doing nothing. In our time. It's obviously been replaced with other you know, gadgets and devices and distractions. So I'll be there on my phone. You know, reading a long article on espn.com writes about
Tony Romo's completion percentage, right? Just pointless. Useless has no benefit. Laughing Laughing haha. Right at least if I got paid for this stuff, it'd be something. Right laughing laughing Ah, there's no benefit for it whatsoever. But then what happens? My daughter comes up to me.
Right? My mom comes up to me. I'll go Can you help me? Can you read this? Can you do this? I'm like, Oh no, no baby, I have a lot of emails I have to answer. I'm very busy right now. Now all of a sudden it's time to do emails will either be law, right? And so that's kind of the process of didn't waste time. Like in useless things like this, we have to get from point A to point B, he quickly walked to get to that point, so that he would have that extra 510 15 whatever minutes that would have spent be dilly dallying around kind of wandering about right that time that was saved that 1015 minutes that was a that was in 15 minutes that he could dedicate to somebody more attention he could
pay to somebody more they could in a bad day and worship that he could do so until for whatever it is that you needed to do. Right That time could have been spent a lot better. So these are some of the benefits from how the prophets A lot of us who used to walk the next Hanif Kala had Donna Olive know how Julian was hated why he didn't follow Amba Anna ASAP no unison Ahmed Abdullah mo la hora Kala Bitney Ibrahim Mohammed Mohammed Manuela de la Vitaly bin radi Allahu taala. And who? Kala Khanna Ali radi Allahu taala Anita was often the biggest sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon Cana era Masha. Allah gana magan hatami in Sabah bin
Ibrahim Mohamed, who is from the offspring like the progeny from the children of Alibaba. Vitaly Berardi, Allahu taala, and who he says that alira the Allahu taala. And when you would describe the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would say that when he used to walk, he would pull his feet up from the ground, he would pull his feet up from the ground, meaning that he used to completely raise his feet. It was as if the prophets allottee Selim was standing on a decline. It was as if he was declining. So the process of cinnamon would walk with humility, slightly leaning forward, but he's still used to walk with purpose and raises feet completely. We talked about this
narration the third narration in this chapter, Carla Hadassah, Sophia Nobunaga Kia and Bella had de Santa Abby, Anil Mr. Od on Earth, many many Muslim neuromas. Enough. Enough, enough here even Jubail even motor and

I live in a Vitaly with the Allahu taala and who says that when the prophets Allah Nizam would walk, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would slightly lean forward and it was as if he was standing on a decline.
Who says if he was inclined forward
the next chapter Hadeeth number 20.
Babu ma Jaffe, takanori Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the chapter about the cloth the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to place on his head.
Bala head does and I used to from Orissa pala Hadassah work here on Santa Roby Serbia, and he didn't ban unnecessarily mullikin Radhika Allahu taala on who Paul canora sola sola is a mute Filipina to Anna soba who Sobhuza yet
the new Malika the Allahu talana relates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would place a cloth very frequently on his head, in that cloth looked as if it was a cloth belonging to someone who makes oil or It looks as if the cloth had been soaked in oil. And so again, the profits a lot of human he would apply oil to his hair, so not as to not get oil on his clothes or his you know, a mama as we talked about her here on his pillow or something like that. The profits allowed him would take a cloth and he would place it on his head and allow it to basically suck up or dry up a lot of the oil that might have been on the top of his hair so that it wouldn't get
anywhere else. One of the interesting things that I found and we'll be talking about this more is that another thing that the prophets allowed us to do, he had this yellow cloth and maybe it was yellow, because over time that it became yellow because of the oil and of course he would wash it so when it says kindness Oba who Sobhuza yet the cloth looked as if it had oil but it didn't actually have oil, because the profits a lot of them was an extremely impeccably clean person. So after you would use the cloth, you would wash it properly but
Over time it had just become kind of stained with the oil but he would always wash it always clean it even keep around dirty materials like this. But one thing I found very fascinating was that it maybe it looked yellow because of the usage and the oil over time. But the profits a lot of them the cloth, seminarians mentioned that it was a little bit bigger. And the profits a lot of him actually would tie it around his head. So a bandana
Maybe not all right. Babu ma Jaffe, Gil Sati Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, chapter number 21.
The chapter about how the Messenger of Allah Salafi said we used to sit

Allah had death and I found a Muslim fella had the Santa Abdullah ignore Hassan. And just that he and Taylor benchmark Rama and ahora Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the machete. Well, who are Aiden Alcon fusa

This is a narration that we've seen a part of it before this is the other part of the narration
that Caleb into muslimah radi Allahu Allah, Allah, this is a Sahabi a woman. She says that she saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam in the machine.
And he was sitting with his arms tied around his legs.
And she says that when I saw the Messenger of Allah Salafi some sitting with such humility, when I saw the Prophet salani, some sitting with such humility, I started to shake or quiver
because of just the all that was inspired within me by looking at him.
So this narration to give you the complete narration, we've seen a part of it before, that's when they land on the Allahu taala and have entered into the machine. And she saw the prophets a lot he saw them. And she says that he was sitting in the position of Khufu saw a coup saw in the Arabic language, there's a couple of different opinions about what it refers to.
I'll give you the minority position first, and I'll tell you a majority of the scholars how they interpret it, the minority position that some of the scholars mentioned that this refers to is, imagine if somebody is sitting in the Tisha hood position, like we sit in salon, on your knees, somebody's sitting in the disheveled position. And then with their hands, they're kind of leaning forward on the ground, with their hands leaning forward on the ground, and kind of hunched over, like somebody would be kind of deep and thought that that's how the profits a lot of the time was sitting. The other interpretation of what facade means and that's the more sound opinion, based on
just the meaning of the word and the research of the word. And the usage of the word in classical Arabic poetry as well. There's another word for it in Arabic, we're going to see it, it's called the BA. But this is a little bit different. And if the bat means that when you sit, you sit on your backside, and then you put your legs up in front of you, you stand your legs up in front of you. And normally, what they would do is the Arabs, because it talks about it, that they used to call this hate bond with the wall of the Arabs. The reason for that was that the Arabs, of course, they lived in the desert, there weren't a lot of trees, right? These were very simple, especially the better
ones. Very simple, folks, they didn't even have a lot of walls and things like that. They used to live in tents. And so because there wasn't a lot to lean on, right, there wasn't a lot of places that you could lean on like a wall or trees and things like that. So the Arabs have developed kind of a way to sit that felt kind of like you were leaning against something where they would sit, they would put their feet up around them. And then they would take like a sheet like da mama or something like that. And they would tie it around their legs, they would tight around, and they would tight, very tight. And that way you could let your arms go, and your legs just stayed as a party, right.
And if you've ever done it, I've actually slept Alright, so it was pretty remarkable. So this is how they would sit. Now, I'll put full size a little bit different because that's a very elaborate kind of a procedure. Not very elaborate, but nevertheless, it requires like you you have to have something that you can tie around yourself. So you have to have a scarf or a mama or something that you can tie around yourself. So number one, you got to have something and then you got to actually tie it around you well what if somebody didn't have something that they could tie around themselves, then you just kind of throw your hands around your knees and just kind of hold on like that. And so
that is what was referred to
As a beautiful saw, and so it's a very humble position. It's a very humble position of sitting because it was associated with the out of the veterans, simple people, peasants, you know, just people sitting on the side of the road or the street, very simple, humble position of sitting. And so the profitsystem is sitting in the machine just sitting there like this, instead of climbing up, he's not getting hooked up. So instead of climbing up and just sitting on the member, you know, with a nice pose, right? The profits along with him doesn't sit in the budget like this ready to take a picture, but it's right. That's not the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, right? He's not like
striking a pose all the time. He's sitting in the masjid, reflecting thinking about the greatness of Allah, maybe reflecting on the Quran, maybe he's thinking about the plight of the people, maybe he's worried or concerned about someone, whatever the case may be. And so the process is sitting there just like you would see, like a humble, maybe a miskeen, off the street would come and sit down in a machine and we'll just sit down and put their arms around their knees like this, the process of somebody just sitting there like that, and let the cashier very humbly, with great humility. And so she says that when she walks in, and she sees the profits, a lot of them sitting there with such
humility, knowing he's a messenger of God, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, a man whom Allah dresses with titles. Yeah, you have to be you gotta you have rasuluh the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala Habiba Allah Allah me the most remarkable human being to ever walk the face of this earth. And he sits here like this just so humble,
that she said I was so moved by this. So inspired with all that just started to like shape.
Like he gripped me had a profound effect on me.
And she says that the prophets a lot, he said, um,
he just said to her, he said, spoony, just relax. And she said, the second he said that to me, I just calmed down, and I sat down.
Right. So this was how she observed the process of sitting. So of course, what we learned from this is the fact that the processor was very humble, very modest in that regard. The second Hadeeth
Kala had Deaf Anna
Sarah Duplo abdominal masumi was a to widen pallu Hadassah, Sophia and azurion Abba dibny, Tamim, Amelie and the hora de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was still Korean Phil mushy de while the rich lady and an okra
so bad when Tamim Rahim Allah huzzah Allah. He relates from his uncle, whose name is Abdullah bin Zaid ibn Abdullah de radi Allahu taala. And who this is again, a very well known Sahabi there's a couple of things that are to his credit. First and foremost, he was the Sahaba who was shown the dream of the oven and came and told the profits a lot to him that he had seen this dream of the oven. This is that same hobby, the uncle of a badminton team. The second thing that is also to his credit is that he was
the other person when washy was trying to kill moose a llama Look at that. The liar that Abdullah bin Zayed Road The Allahu taala and who was the other person that was there trying to race to kill him. So Abdullah bin Zayed bin Abdullah be here are the Allahu taala is the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He says he saw the profits a lot. He said I'm laying down in the mustard on his back and he had one leg placed on top of the other leg.
So he was stealthy and not to explain again was stealthy and refers to laying down flat on your back. So the profits a lot he was laying down flat on his back. The reason why he notes this specifically is of course when the prophets a lot of them would sleep gunning and Amala gem de la min. The prophets a lot of them used to sleep on his right side when he would sleep. But he saw the process on one time just in the masjid lying down very casually. And he was lying down flat on his back and he had one leg crossed over the other leg, one foot cross over the other foot. Right that says is very common. And he was laying there like this. Now there's a little bit of a discussion
here because there is a narration from the prophets a lot a salon where he says lie Estelle Kiana hadoken through my elbow damage Lee Allen okra, none of you should lie down and then place one leg on top of another leg.
The profits a lot of them said none of you should lay down on your back and then place one leg on top of the other leg and he says I saw the profits a lobby some laying on his back with one foot cross over the other foot.
So the difference here is number one, the scholars they mentioned that with the profits a lot of them again keep in mind what type of clothes they used to
that they used to wear that lower garments. Basically it was these are what in some languages or cultures is called the Louie. Right. So the way that it's worn is kind of like just tying the towel around your waist like in the head on how we wear it and how men wear it in the head on. That's what they used to wear. And so when the profits a lot, he said him says none of you should lie on your back. And then place one leg on top of the other leg, the profits along the similar saying that basically you, you put one leg up, like you bend your knee, and then you cross your leg over it.
For obvious reason, so
because nobody wants to see that. So the prophets a lot, he said, um, that's what he was referring to. But when the prophets, a lot of them is seen lying in the masjid flat on his back, and he has his legs crossed over, his legs are straight flat on the ground, his clothes are flat on the ground, it's just simply the fact that his feet are crossed over. Not that his entire leg is crossed over where it can open up his clothing, right and exposes our and that's what he told Sahaba not to do, because sometimes there might have been younger Sahaba or people like that, who might not have been so aware or conscious of that fact. And you know, maybe they did that maybe the prop system side
maybe there were some complaints in the community. So the profits a lot of them said no, no, no, no.
But as for what the profits a lot of them was doing. It was not that case at all. rather he had his feet out, legs out straight and just his feet were cross over at the ankles. So that was the difference.
And of course, he mounted me the or let me comment on this in just a minute. The Let's read the third narration Bella had the final Selma to blue shabby color Hadassah Abdullah Ibrahim
al Madani tala Donna is half of new Mohammed Al Ansari, Unruh Bay, Abdul Rahman a beneficiary of a B and j d. a b c. d radi Allahu taala Nepal canora sola sola era Josephine machete, ba ba de
Abu Sarita hoody, radi Allahu taala anhu, again, a very great companion of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says that when the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam would sit in the masjid, he would a lot of times wrap his arms around his legs and sit, again put up his knees, that when he would sit in the machine, he would not tie you know, a cloth or like a shawl or whatever to his legs and hold them up. But he would basically places arms around his knees, when he would sit his legs All right. Now, to explain, basically, some of the issues pertaining to this number one, D, first thing that needs to be clarified here is that there is a narration in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prohibited the Sahaba from doing a T bar in the masjid. There is their narration where the prophets
a lot of them specifically told the Sahaba not to put up their legs and then tie something around their legs in the masjid.
And the reason for that was he told them not to do that during the the hotbar told them not to do that during the football.
Right, that would be no different than the you know, somebody advising someone not to go and sit and lean against a wall in the hookah.
If that is going to make you lazy, or not paying attention or fall asleep, right, even though in our scenarios, a lot of times, you could be standing up and fall asleep in a football right? But that's for different reasons. This is the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Rasul. Allah isn't giving football. So if you fall asleep in the hood of the Messenger of Allah logic is nothing but your hafla your own heedlessness, you're making yourself lazy, You're distracting yourself. Right? And the Sahaba were very hard working people, many people would travel to Juma out from a couple of them, you know, hours away, they would ride in in the desert, and then at noon time, right. So people were tired,
people were exhausted some people working out in the fields, farmers, they're very tired. They've been working since fudger, and so on, so forth. So it was very understandable that if they kind of made themselves a little too comfortable that they would doze off and go to sleep. And so that's why the prophets, a lot of them told them not to do that at about not to tie anything around their legs when they sat, because then they It was like leaning against the wall. They were very prone to falling asleep. So that's why the process is prohibited that having said that, that has a specific context. Eamon Timothy Rahim Allahu taala brings three different variations. In the in the first and
in the last narration, the profits a lot of them is basically again sitting there with his legs up, but he has his hands or his arms around his legs and the profits a lot. He said him is demonstrating that if you're just casual
Sitting in a machine, it's okay for you to sit like that. But specifically just to maintain the depth of the machine, even when he was just kind of sitting and reflecting and just spending time in the house of Allah, the reason why he would still not tie something else around his legs, you can do at home, whatever you want, but in the machine, he wouldn't tied something else around his legs was that it just was not befitting of the etiquette of the question, a little bit of a little bit of etiquette. And again, being the leader, the Buddha, the one that everyone looks up to and follows the process and was very particular in that regard. Right. So we can take a little bit from that,
that there might be some very casual methods of setting that we normally might enjoy and whatever casual settings we have, right? But in the masjid, it's it's
the profits a lot of humans teaching us to be a little bit more appropriate and reserved.
If nothing else out of respect for the machine.
And I'm telling me the the second narration that he brings out the prophets a lot he was lying down in the masjid with his legs crossed over, that is to again demonstrate the fact that if somebody is maybe doing errand to God for spending an extended period of time in the masjid, and they decide to lay down, then that is also acceptable, that is appropriate. And there's nothing wrong with that, right that at the same time, while maybe if there is a gathering going on, and there are other people in the masjid or something is going on, you want to be a little bit more appropriate and that's why the prophecy symbol is being more appropriate. However, there are also times kind of
downtime or off hours or between prayers, where you're kind of spending some time
on take a nap, whatever it may be in the masjid. And so that should also be kept in mind that that should also be remembered. There is another narration as well. And again, Imam Timothy brings a second narration that if the promises of light laid down in the machine, right, he would lie down in the machine and that means sitting in any particular position was something that was okay and acceptable. However, there is a very beautiful narration that says it's in the center of a mobile download in a soft unauthentic narration
that under who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Makana era Salam Fujairah taraba aFy majlis e de taco ashampoo hasna A ba ba nakiya that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he, after he would pray so often fudger the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would sit cross legged, like a comfortable position of sitting the profits, a lot of them would sit cross legged,
waiting for the sun to completely rise up. So when he would spend time in the machine from fudger until the sun rose, whether he was doing Vica or answering people's questions, the process of did sit comfortably, right. It's not like he sat into shuffled position all the time permanently. The process of would sit cross legged and be comfortable.
I wanted to mention one thing, sorry about something that we read. The
last Hadith that we read in this chapter, about how the prophets Allah so Musa says something very fascinating. You see that it says that would obey even Abdul Rahman even Abby serried.
So how the profits a lot of time used to sit
abou sorry, didn't Audrina, the Allahu taala saw this.
And he taught told his son,
how the profits are how he saw the profits a lot is him sitting. And then his son Abdur Rahman taught, taught his son rubbish, and told his son about how his father had told him how he had seen the profits a lot he SimCity. So again, you see the fact that the generation of the Sahaba radi Allahu taala, and home, did not outsource the Islamic education of their children. And number two, one of the primary things that they would teach their children and their children taught their children was about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and what did they teach them about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam before they got too technical, and taught them a bunch of
complex ahadeeth about fear karaca or something else. They told them these describe to them the profits, a lot of them how we used to walk, how we used to sit, how we used to speak to people, they created love for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is a very, very powerful lesson here, our responsibility to our future generations. Right, whether we are addressing the needs of children, whether we are addressing the needs of the youth, at a communal level, and particularly when we're addressing it inside the home at a family level. Our first and foremost obligation and their first and foremost right is to create love for Allah to create love for the book of Allah and to create
love for the Messenger of Allah sala de Sena
technicalities, all these other different things.
They all come later.
But first and foremost, create love.
And that will open doors to many, many things.
They will read the book of Allah themselves, once they fall in love with Allah.
They will go and look at the Hadith of the prophets, a lot of them and read all the ahaadeeth. Once they develop love for the Messenger of Allah, Allah when they feel like they can, they can see this man.
And they admire him. And they respect him and they love him.
That's the game changer. Right. And that's what we need to do. That's what we need to focus on. Many, many of us, unfortunately, just because of the dynamics in our community, and it's a work in progress in sha Allah. Many of us, even as adults here didn't necessarily grow up with that. And that's why so much of our effort is focused on developing of that respect and that love and that admiration. Because again, that is what opens the doors sometimes sometimes. And I want to say this very cautiously.
That it's not a shortcoming in the book of a law. It's not it will either be law, God forbid, right? It's not a shortcoming in the Messenger of Allah, Allah. May Allah protect us from ever thinking even though
because of my shortcoming because of my feeble mindedness,
my lack of depth or intelligence, there might actually be something that I might not initially understand or be able to grasp or wrap my head around.
But the thing that will keep me connected and keep me going
and not even caused me to flinch without a hitch and just keep rolling. Is love.
that a lot of times what happens today is when somebody hears one idea that they initially when hearing it, they can't figure out or wrap their head around, or they hear Hadeeth insight what Huh, why?
It breaks their email and it breaks their faith, best class finish done.
because of a lack of foundation, it's wobbly to wobbly structure, wind blows and falls kills right over.
And what is that foundation The foundation is love, love of Allah and love of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the love of Allah and His Messenger salani so May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to inspire that love within our families and children and communities. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to be a means of delivering that love of Allah and His Messenger Salaam to all of humanity to all of mankind. I mean yada yada me, so Han Allah who will be handy subhanak allambee houdek Chateau La ilaha illa Anta NASA for Ghana to be
