00:00:00--> 00:00:38

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Who does have the Nasser agenda and you're listening to the column podcast. Before we get started with today's session, I wanted to share a really amazing resource with you. A question that everyone has a problem that everybody deals with is, how do I focus within my prayer? How do I enjoy my Salah? Well, the answer to that question, the solution to that problem is actually quite straightforward and simple. If we understand what we say within our prayer, we'll be able to focus on it, internalize it, and actually get back to enjoying our conversation with Allah subhanaw taala. We created a solution to make this possible. It's called

00:00:38--> 00:01:21

meaningful prayer. This is a course a curriculum, a seminar, a workshop that I taught in over 100 locations, all across this country and even in other countries. 10s of 1000s of people have taken this course. And it has really turned around transformed their relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. Well, now in sha Allah, you can take the meaningful prayer course online, you can take it according to your own schedule, at your own leisure, you can pace yourself, you can go back and review some lessons multiple times, to really be able to internalize them, go to meaningful To sign up, share this resource with others, so that we can get back to not only just

00:01:21--> 00:01:29

offering our prayers or performing our Salah, but we can go back to experiencing a conversation and relationship with Allah.

00:01:30--> 00:01:42

Now to get on to today's session, in sha Allah, we're going to be covering the Shema, a mohammedia, the prophetic personality, the following session was recorded at the Syrah intensive.

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

de la Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah you Allah, Allah, he was army marine.

00:02:04--> 00:02:14

So inshallah, let's go ahead and get started with our session here today in sha Allah, on the Shama in

00:02:15--> 00:02:34

the prophetic personality. So very quickly, those who might have been keeping up with the series, in terms of the recordings, this might seem a bit redundant, but for the students that are here, I wanted to explain exactly

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

what we're doing here and shall learn what we're going to be covering.

00:02:40--> 00:02:55

So as I had mentioned previously, that the, in the course of the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, in its entirety, it's a profound spiritual experience. Nevertheless,

00:02:57--> 00:03:34

there can be the dynamic where, when studying the life of the prophets a lot, he said, um, there it can become somewhat of a history lesson. And one of the things that I very particularly, you know, try to implement within the intensives that we do is for there to be some type of a very spiritually engaging component to the program. And so here at the cedar intensive, this is the third year that we're conducting the cedar intensive, that particular spiritual components

00:03:35--> 00:04:19

is in the form of the study of the Shema L of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, the prophetic personality, as I like to translate it, and what these what this collection So to give you a really brief introduction to the collection, the collection is compiled by Imam at the one that we are setting there's a few different collections. The one that we are setting is compiled by Imam a Timothy Rahim Allahu taala. And this is by far the most popular, the most well taught most frequently abundantly studied of the compilations of the Shema, in the study of the personality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I happen to love what we've been able to do. Throughout

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

the course of the CETA intensive, we've had it the last two years, we started at the very beginning of this particular collection. And each year, each of the first two years, we've been able to cover about a third of the collection. So what we decided to do was to continue moving forward. And what that allows us to do is we as you can see we record the session as well, and then we're able to then make the sessions available online, open to the entire community. If you go on the following podcast, you'll find the entirety of the first two thirds of the Shema l talk there. And what this what This facilitates is

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

That the entirety of the Shema, he gets taught, gets recorded gets documented and everyone can benefit from it. So we're we're going to be setting here, this particular year in sha Allah, the CETA intensive is that we're going to be studying the Shema in mohammedia, the prophetic personality and we'll be studying the last third of the book, if you will, in sha Allah, which essentially begins with chapter number 45. The students should have in front of them the booklet that was given to them, that was provided to them in sha Allah, so they can follow along there. Just a couple of quick notes that I like to clarify, as we get started every year is that the booklet that you have

00:05:48--> 00:05:53

in front of you does have a translation provided there in

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

now that translation is

00:05:57--> 00:06:35

that it's been looked over a bit, so it's not completely horrendous. However, there is definitely some room for improvements. And so inshallah, as we're kind of going through it, we'll be able to further refine the translation inshallah, as we proceed forward. So let's go ahead and get started. Now the way that we're going to be covering this is that I'll read the chapter in sha Allah, and I will read I'll read the entirety of the narration. And then in sha Allah, I'll provide a very basic, brief translation of it. And then from there in sha Allah, I'll go into a further explanation of it being Allahu taala.

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

So let's go ahead and get started.

00:06:46--> 00:07:07

All right, we'll start with chapter number 45 Babu ma Jaffe, boo ke rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the chapter about the crying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the chapter about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when, why, how he would cry.

00:07:09--> 00:07:38

And so the very first narration, and in the Arabic, you're always going to see a bunch of names there in the beginning, that will not be reflected within the translation. That is essentially the chain of narration. That is the mama Timothy mentioning the narration from his teacher who got it from his teacher who got it from his teacher who got it from his teacher, and who will eventually get it from a companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then mentioned something about the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So in the Arabic I'll be reading that

00:07:40--> 00:08:04

Dalai Lama Timothy Rahim Allahu taala had the financial aid Nursery in Colorado Santa Abdullayev mill mobarak and Medina, Santa Marta and Tabitha and mutrah wahoo abdillah Ignis ignition feed and a B E. collar it to Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wahoo Who are you suddenly when he jiofi he as easy

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

as easy mirror jelly mineral buka he

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

absorbing Shahid

00:08:12--> 00:08:27

he narrates from his father Shaheed, he says that I came to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I arrived in the company of the Messenger of God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while he was praying.

00:08:29--> 00:08:45

And from inside of his chest, there was a sound coming from there in that was like the sound of a pot, boiling water. And that was due to his crying.

00:08:46--> 00:09:28

Now, first and foremost, just to kind of start at the very top, and at the very beginning to understand this particular concept, this point might not see it might it's not very complicated. It's not rocket science. But nevertheless, the word boo cop, because a lot of times we don't understand we already saw a couple of translations you see written in the book, it says, weeping. However, in the translation, you see that it says crying, right, so the word buka, in the Arabic language, the dictionary, the scholars of the lexicon, they defined it, they define it actually, there are two ways to say the word there's the word buka. And then there's a word buka Ooh, buka una

00:09:28--> 00:09:49

with the Hamza at the end. And those are two separate words. They come from the same roots. They both refer to crime, but they have different meaning. The first one, the shorter one, because it refers to a man whose money it means for someone to be experiencing some very strong emotions, that leads to a person tearing up.

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

But there are just simply tears involved. There's obviously that emotion, but physically that emotion is only resulting in tears coming out, but when you say boo, caught on

00:10:00--> 00:10:10

With the hums at the end, the elongation of the sound buka on Hulu Mara for a salt, it refers to not only

00:10:11--> 00:10:34

the strong emotions being experienced, but those emotions physically manifesting in the form of not only a person shedding tears, but also with a person kind of raising their voice, there's some type of sound, there's some type of voice that is coming from that person, some type of sound being emitted from that person that represents this, the emotions that they're experiencing.

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

And that's essentially the definition of the word buka. That is found in the lexicon itself.

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

Now this so this is the chapter that we'll be talking about the crying of the prophets a lot he said I'm so in the very first narration, this Sahabi this companion is his feed, he says that I came to visit the prophet to lobby some while he was praying.

00:10:59--> 00:11:11

And then he goes on to say when he jiofi he now the word Jove in the Arabic language, a lot of times in modern Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, there were a lot of times just translated as stomach.

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

But in classical Arabic, the word joke does not mean stomach.

00:11:17--> 00:11:42

All right, the word button would refer to stomach in classical Arabic. In classical Arabic, the Jove basically, revert refers to, if you will, the entire upper, kind of the the cavity of the body, the entire upper portion of the body, including the chest. So what he refers to is that there was like some type of sound coming from his chest.

00:11:43--> 00:11:48

And what this essentially refers to almost kind of like a moaning or a groaning type of sound.

00:11:49--> 00:12:01

So it wasn't, so to explain exactly the concept and the idea here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, again, if someone's natural emotion and natural reaction is to maybe cry more verbally,

00:12:02--> 00:12:26

you know, kind of cry with more sound like from the throat, from the mouth, then that's fine, if that's somebody's natural way of just how their emotion pours out. But there was a particular problem at the time of the profits a lot of the time. And the problem was that there was a culture in place where there were professionals that would be hired,

00:12:27--> 00:13:09

who would basically so morning, you know, just like, you know, maybe somebody hires, they're professionals that are hired for celebrate celebratory purposes, right, you might have somebody, you know, musicians or singers or, you know, a clown, or a magician or whatever. There are people who are hired for celebratory purposes, singers and dancers and things like that. Well, mourning was a very big part of their culture. And it was actually a bit of a problematic part of their culture. It was like overt mourning. And there were some elements of it that were tied into their idolatry, their idol worship, as well. And so what they would basically do is that they would hire these

00:13:09--> 00:13:54

professionals to come and to mourn and lament and be very dramatic and, you know, have a performance of for the morning of the person. And it was very disingenuous, it was very inappropriate. And the reason why I say that there were some problematic elements of belief, because it fundamentally was like an expression of ingratitude. It was Oh, woe is me, why me was kind of the tone of that lamenting, right, and this was referred to as like new hat. And the profits a lot he said prohibited that he put an end to that said, this very disingenuous, is not real at all. In fact, it gets in the way of expressing and experiencing some real emotion because everyone's worried about a death

00:13:54--> 00:14:36

happens. And instead of actually just dealing with it, you're worried about finding a professional on short notice who can come and Parana performance in front of the house. And so it's not good and on top of that, it had elements of ingratitude in gratitude. So the prophets a lot of them put a stop to this. So because of that, because that was so pop predominant in their culture, their profits, a lot of them had a preference, kind of to curb that culture that was present there to not like verbally kind of cry out and yell and shout and things like that. And so the prophets a lot December's crying, his tears were coming down, but it's almost like there was like this deep kind of

00:14:36--> 00:14:58

moaning or groaning sound that was coming from his chest. so as to not be too demonstrative. In basically whatever emotion he was experiencing, which we'll talk about in just a second. So that's what the word joke refers to. And then it says when the jiofi as these are not as easy but as each one with a Hamza and as it comes in the Quran as well to zoom

00:14:59--> 00:14:59


00:15:00--> 00:15:15

In the Arabic language refers to movement, friction hasakah. Alright, so to shake something to move something to rattle something, it's like a za. And you can hear that kind of in the sound as well as the origin.

00:15:17--> 00:15:41

Right. And so it kind of has that sound to it. And so Aziz refers to basically kind of like almost like a movement, like some, something's grinding. So think of the element of grinding there was like that type of a moaning. That's why I describe it as moaning or kind of like a groaning that was coming from inside of him. And then it's compared to because he's admitted. The word jmeter, just in the Arabic language refers to a huge pot.

00:15:43--> 00:15:52

Like think of a huge container, like a huge pot that you cook something in. So they used to particularly have these containers that were made from new highs that were made from copper

00:15:53--> 00:16:25

that they used to cook inside of, like when they were preparing a lot of food. So they would throw a bunch of food in there, pour a bunch of water in there, and then light a fire underneath it, and just let it kind of boil. All right, and so and it's called jmeter gel, which comes from region which means feet, because those the huge pot, it has a big base, so it just kind of sits on its own. So they would call it a middle jet like it stands on its own two legs, so to speak. Alright, so first of that big old pot, and I get the idea and the image in your head of kind of like that pot boiling.

00:16:26--> 00:17:00

He said there was almost like something kind of boiling inside of him. Like there was a sound coming. Like it was really it was very powerful. minute buka. And that was basically the problem. The tears were coming down. And he noticed that this was the it's the strong emotions, the profits a lot he was experiencing. Now what kind of brings us all together, what ties it all together. And that's the point I wanted to make here is that this was happening in the prayer. This was happening in the prayer. It was paying Rahim Allahu taala. And I'm going to introduce this idea now. Abraham, Allahu Allah and Javed in my

00:17:01--> 00:17:38

book that he wrote about the life of the prophets a lot of the some of the habits and the characteristics about the prophets a lot. He said, um, he says here very specifically, and I'll be quoting it directly from there. He says, Why my Bukavu? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for ngadimin Jin see the key? The crying of the prophets a lot SLM in its reserve bigness was very similar to the laughter of the prophets a lot. He said a meaning how he channeled those particular emotions. What he means by that is lemmya couldn't be sure here in the prophets a lot, he said was not very loud and abrupt.

00:17:40--> 00:18:04

Like he wouldn't cause a commotion. He would not create a scene when he left he wouldn't create a scene. You know, ruffling. Right? The profits, a lot of them will not do that. Right? He didn't cause a scene he had dignity. All right. And similarly, when crying you wouldn't be flopping around on the ground, like a fish out of water, you know, make causing the scene had this dignitary about him. What a Sultan he wouldn't be shouting and screaming.

00:18:06--> 00:18:24

Kamala Khan, by the coup be Takahata like he wouldn't like laugh really loudly and abruptly. Kaka near big language is quite literally the translation of lol right? And it's also four letters cough ha ha ha ha ha lol

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

l what I can

00:18:28--> 00:18:45

what I can can attend tomorrow. I know who had died them hula. But to the eyes of the profits a lot of these some would well up with tears. Like you saw his eyes were kind of well up. And when you can kind of see them kind of getting kind of shiny.

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

You can see the tears kind of sparkling in his eyes. They would well up

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

until they would start to flow from his eyes

00:18:55--> 00:19:09

will use smiley sad that he has these on and you could if it was a really strong moment. You could feel kind of like that that groaning kind of coming from his chest again. What kind of rotten rotten Lima yet

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

and they're crying sometimes would be because of the mercy and the compassion that he felt towards a dearly departed.

00:19:19--> 00:19:30

Someone who had passed without them hope and Allah Almighty He sometimes he would cry in this manner, because he would be worried about his oma his followers

00:19:32--> 00:19:32

were shocked

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

and he would care about them deeply and profoundly.

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

Without him in his Shatila. Sometimes it was due to just being overwhelmed by the greatness and the majesty of a law

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

without our dinner in the summer, and

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

sometimes it was due to listening to the book of a law and reflecting on it very deeply and profoundly well who are Bukavu Ishtiaq in one mohabbatein

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

He, when he cried when praying and reading the Quran, it was a crying of love and and desiring near and as to Allah subhanaw taala and feeling the all in the power in the majesty of God. Masahiko Lin Kofi will hatia. Also at the same time being humbled in the presence of the majesty of God. When a Mamata even no matter even know who Ibrahim them I know who when his son, his infant son, his baby Ibrahim passed away his eyes restreaming tears would not stop.

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

We're back. We're back, Netanyahu, and he cried out of mercy

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

missing his son. And he said that murder is a new way as

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

well on the Hulu Illa de robina. We're in bkr Ibrahim lemma Hassan

00:20:58--> 00:21:07

he said that the I shed tears in the heart It aches. But we do not say anything that is displeasing to our master to Allah.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

And I miss you so much away Brahim.

00:21:12--> 00:21:16

Well, Baka Allah, Masha de bonacci, one of Suharto.

00:21:18--> 00:21:27

This was not actually one of the daughters of the process. Somebody was the granddaughter of the prophets a lot. So one of the granddaughters of the process of the daughter of Xena

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

she was a small baby.

00:21:32--> 00:21:36

And she was dying, the baby was dying. She was having trouble breathing.

00:21:38--> 00:21:57

And she was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the process of Helder in their in his arms. The baby. As she was struggling, the baby was struggling to breathe, catch your breath. He was the granddaughter of the processor. And he sat there holding you're watching her struggle to catch a breath and the tears were streaming he was crying.

00:21:58--> 00:22:13

What bacala ma hibino Masaru tsaatan nessa and we're going to read the narration that when he asked Abdullah bin Masuda radi Allahu taala I knew to recite the Quran to him. And even Mr. Rhodes started reciting Surah Nisa

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

that the prophets it brought the Prophet system to tears.

00:22:18--> 00:22:49

Well, bacala my mother earth man, even your mother own one of his illustrious companions, Earth man midmar their own when he passed away, the process lesson was brought to tears. Well, bacala Casa de Sham says we're going to read about when there was a solar eclipse at the time of the prophets, a lot of them when he stood up to pray during the solar eclipse, he was in tears, asking a lot to not bring the end of you know the world and bring the punishments upon them. Well Salah Salatin kossuth, which Allah Yep, keffi salatu

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

wa Jalla, again, Fukuoka kulu. And we'll talk about that.

00:22:55--> 00:23:01

What bacala majelis Allah cabri that bonacci Zayn of his daughters and

00:23:02--> 00:23:07

his eldest when she passed away, and she had been through a lot,

00:23:08--> 00:23:12

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, My Xena, she was amazing.

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

she witnessed everything. She was there for everything. She saw everything. She understood everything we went through.

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

And when she was leaving Makkah, to come to join her father in Medina, she was pregnant and she was attacked at that time,

00:23:30--> 00:24:10

by a wretched individual, out of hatred for the profits a lot he said of, and he attacked her with the sphere and wounded her. She lost her, the baby she was carrying because of that, and she suffered a wound that never completely healed and she eventually succumbed to complications from that same wound years later, and she was sick throughout constantly nursing dealing with that wound. When she finally passed away, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam got down he was very old at this time, it was the end of his life, very old, but he got down into the grave and lowered her body and placed her in the grave. When he got out from the grave, they helped him out he sat down on the edge

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

of the grave, just an old father,

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

burying yet another one of his children.

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

The profits a lot. He's almost blessed with seven children.

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

And six of his children passed away in his lifetime.

00:24:25--> 00:24:31

The greatest tragedy any human being can ever experience is the loss of a child.

00:24:32--> 00:24:38

One of my teachers pointed something out in Arabic as well as when I thought about it in English as well.

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

What do you call a child who's lost their parents

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

in orphan?

00:24:46--> 00:24:50

What do you call a wife who's lost her husband, a widow, and her husband has lost his wife a widower?

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

What's the word for a parent that's lost a child.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

It's not very popularly

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

There's we don't have a word in English in particular, maybe there is an old English or something, even in Arabic. There were some expressions but there was not one term that was commonly used culturally to refer to that person.

00:25:14--> 00:25:26

And part of the understanding for that was they said it was such a terrible idea that they could not give it a word. There's too painful to give it a name, no name, no word to do a justice.

00:25:28--> 00:25:33

The tragedy that it is and the profits A lot of us haven't experienced that six times in his lifetime.

00:25:36--> 00:25:40

So an old father who's just buried his daughter he came in he sat down on the edge of the grave

00:25:42--> 00:25:48

and he told everyone that was there please make dua for my Xena pray for her. She went through a lot

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

and then he broke down into tears and he started to cry at the edge of her grief

00:25:55--> 00:26:04

okay kind of ENFP salata Leyland, the prophets, a lot of him was also seen too often he was found in tears when he would pray in the night.

00:26:05--> 00:26:25

So this is to kind of summarize the crying of the prophets a lot he said them. In this narration, we see that the profits a lot a term is in particular, crying, while performing the prayer in wild while praying. And this was once again as we talked about before, due to just the

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

just being overwhelmed

00:26:29--> 00:26:51

and being completely in awe and humbled in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala this narration this hadith I'll just mention this here. It's found in the shrine of Timothy but just to corroborate the narrations. This particular Hadith is also found in the Sahih mumble hottie. It's also found in the Sahih Muslim and many other books of Hadith like Abu Dhabi. nessa in Muslim docman

00:27:44--> 00:28:10

In this particular narration, Abdullah bin Mr. radi Allahu taala and who are very illustrious companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that the Messenger of God again, I'll just give a brief translation, which you can again, follow along with. And then in sha Allah, I'll go through the actual explanation of it. I'm delivering the Allahu taala and who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, read for me,

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

read for me.

00:28:15--> 00:28:24

I said, O Messenger of God, shall I read to you, like does it should I read to you, and it is revealed upon you.

00:28:26--> 00:28:37

It is revealed upon you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I love to listen to the Quran from someone else. Like I love to listen to others reciting the Quran.

00:28:39--> 00:28:42

So he says I started reading sooner to Nisa until I reached the ayah.

00:28:44--> 00:28:50

which Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Nisa, the entirety of the ayah is

00:28:59--> 00:29:15

Okay, fair enough. Now I'm including my timbi shahidan widget now because Allahu Allah is shahidan that think about what that situation will be like, when we bring a witness to testify

00:29:17--> 00:29:31

upon each and every single oma each and every single group of people, and then we finally bring you over Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to testify and validate those who have testified against the people.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

What the ayah basically refers to is that the people that disbelieved that throughout history throughout time throughout history, the people that we read about in the Koran, the people of the people of odd, all these people who disbelieved. When they'll come on the Day of Judgment, they will try to contend to their fate. Like No, nobody told us anything. Nobody, you know, told us what we could or could not do. And so Allah will call the prophets and messengers that were sent to them.

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

Who the alayhis salam and Sani Alayhi Salam and others, Allah will call those profits and those profits will stand before God and will bear witness will testify I swear to you all Allah, I delivered to them the message that you gave to me. I did what I was supposed to do.

00:30:17--> 00:30:53

And then Allah will call the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to testify on behalf of those prophets. They yes, these prophets are all truthful. They are prophets and messengers of God and they speak the truth. When he reached that ayah I've delivered Mr. Rude says hottub enough to when I reached that I a part of a tool. I looked at the profits, a lot of them and I saw that his eyes were overflowing with tears, they had welled up and the tears had started to flow from his eyes, just being overwhelmed by that thought in that idea. So to get into the particular narration and give a little explanation here.

00:30:54--> 00:31:03

One of the very profound things here is the prophets a lot. He said, I'm going to Abdullah bin Massoud, radi Allahu taala. And one thing read the Koran to me.

00:31:05--> 00:31:27

Which tells us right off the bat right here, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had such a love and had such a connection with the Quran, and engaged and loved engaging with the Quran to the extent that it was not only just reading it into prayer, or reading it while sitting down, but even wanting to listen to it.

00:31:29--> 00:31:37

He had this the Quran would was constantly flowing through his life through his existence. It was a part of his life.

00:31:38--> 00:31:58

Walking and sitting and morning and evening and writing. He was even seen reciting the Quran. While he'd be writing an animal while traveling. He was reciting the Quran while walking. He was sitting reciting the Quran was sitting, reciting the Quran while lying in bed, even sitting in the machine and then calling someone like I'm delivering food and saying, Come here, sit read.

00:32:00--> 00:32:07

So this was a constant engagement, the prophets a lot of them had with the Quran. May Allah subhanaw taala give us that level of a connection with the book of Allah.

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

And then secondly,

00:32:11--> 00:32:41

the scholars also pointed out here, that listening is its own activity. Listening has its own virtue has its own benefits. And particularly one of the scholars in Mumbai Judy Rahim, Allahu taala. He actually writes here, he says, in a hypothetical economy, Sam, Mary Holly son, Lita, aku, limani behera fill party, particularly in our case, the prophets a lot, he said them was absolutely perfect.

00:32:42--> 00:33:21

But in our case, he talks about it that listening to the Quran actually can sometimes allow you to just fixate on the meaning of what's being read versus reciting it, reading it yourself why they know who must be adopting alfalfa, because when you're reading it, you got to actually make sure you're reading it properly. And then you go back and you catch yourself and you try to make sure you pronounce everything properly. It's all you got to do your mother hear your elongation there, you're learning now you're kind of pressing on the noon sound over here. You got to constantly be doing these different things. And so it can kind of take away from that you pour a lot of attention and

00:33:21--> 00:34:01

energy into make sure you're reading it properly. But when you're sitting there just listening to it allows you to think about it and reflect upon it. Well yeah, I thought a lot of you haha, Pollyanna who errata see man or woman gibreel. Well, I added to my boo button with a very, and very interestingly, he says the prophets a lot of these women had actually developed quite a fondness for listening to the Quran being recited to him, because jabril alayhi salam would come and recite the Quran to him as well. And so he's asking Abdullah bin Massoud recite, read the Quran to me. And another very profound point here. See the prophets allottee. Some taught and lead by example.

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

He taught lead by example.

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

Our problem My problem is that I'll tell y'all,

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

you know, you should have good character, you shouldn't go good o'clock. And if somebody is rude to you, you be nice to them. You Be polite to them.

00:34:18--> 00:34:27

Now I say that, and what do you see, five minutes later, somebody kind of cuts me off and I'm kind of like, hey, jerk, right? Watch where you're going.

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

Right? That's that's how I respond immediately, right after I told you, somebody responds to you. If somebody acts rude towards you, you respond with dignity, you respond with generosity, you be a more dignified human being. And then I turn around and I act completely differently myself, the prophets a lot. He said he didn't just teach us these lessons and talk about it. The Protestants have lived it and taught it through his example. And one of the profound points I remember Judy mentioned here, he says Wyoming for why he hasn't had easy to be who Allah and alpha the law.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

I am belly and yet in the middle of the unelma dude,

00:35:05--> 00:35:29

the teacher should never be afraid to it should never be ashamed, should never be embarrassed should never find it beneath themselves to take from the student to benefit from the student. For the Catholic Cathedral Mina, Salafi estephe do them intolerable to many It was a tradition of our scholars of the past, that they would benefit from their own students.

00:35:30--> 00:35:38

They would benefit from their own students. Imam Shafi Avraham, Allahu taala studied with Mr. Mohammed Abu Hassan Shivani.

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

Mr. Mohammed was one of the

00:35:42--> 00:35:55

students of Imam Abu hanifa, and also a student of human Malik, great scholar imaam Shafi he studied with him, when he left the company when he was kind of going elsewhere to continue his studies.

00:35:57--> 00:36:15

And when they were partying in Manchester, he was thanking him thank you for all the knowledge and the benefit and the lessons and the mentorship etc, etc. and Mohammed said to him, he said, I do not say this as a formality. I mean it, you're not going to take it from me, you're not going to pay any attention to it.

00:36:16--> 00:36:32

But you need to know I have benefited from you far more than you've benefited from me. And that's just the God's honest truth. That is not just some false humility. That is not some formality being exchanged. It is the god honest truth. I've learned more from you than you've probably learned from me. You just don't realize it.

00:36:34--> 00:36:42

And that's how the Prophet that's what the process I'm taught us to do. He's a messenger of God, and that's why I'm delivering Massoud. Now to go to the next point, when he says that La

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

La qualico when Zilla

00:36:46--> 00:36:56

I should read to you and upon you wasn't revealed, like I learned from you. He's not he's not rejecting. He's not denying he's not arguing.

00:36:58--> 00:37:01

But it's just the shock of it.

00:37:03--> 00:37:09

The humility of it, this is the messenger of God, Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:11--> 00:37:18

This is the man upon whom the Quran is revealed. I I should read in front of you.

00:37:20--> 00:37:34

And that again shows the humility in the respect that the Sahaba had for the prophets, Allah. latter Pharaoh swatter can focus on the Navy. Do not raise your voices above the voice of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:35--> 00:37:43

la ayuda Aracely Bina concreto Baba, we talked about this earlier that don't talk to the messenger like you talk to each other.

00:37:45--> 00:37:49

And what's really remarkable on top of that, is that

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

every ounce of his being,

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

is just horrified by the idea

00:37:58--> 00:38:04

of reciting the Quran upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's mortified by the idea.

00:38:06--> 00:38:09

But when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him to what does he still do?

00:38:10--> 00:38:17

He does recite it does, you know, there's a very valuable principle in our religion and that is to focus Adam

00:38:18--> 00:38:20

amuru focal

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

compliance with the command

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

is prioritized. Over takes precedence over

00:38:33--> 00:38:38

any notion of etiquette, respect or humility that you might have.

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

Allow me to explain.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

My father tells me

00:38:47--> 00:38:50

we're getting ready to pray at home. My father tells me you lead.

00:38:53--> 00:38:53

It's my father.

00:38:55--> 00:38:59

I love him, I respect him. I adore him, I look up to him, I admire him.

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

So again, I don't like this idea of leading Him in prayer.

00:39:07--> 00:39:18

He knows so much more than me, he's done so much more than me. So much more wisdom. So I don't like the idea. But at that time, if he's telling me to lead the prayer, the real gesture of respect is to do what he's telling me to do.

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

Not to play that Oh, no, no, he's okay. You know,

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

right. Like, no, just be quiet and leap. All right, just do what you're told.

00:39:30--> 00:39:37

We used to deal with this with our teachers as well. We kind of sit down and he's like, who was one particular senior teacher I was traveling with.

00:39:38--> 00:39:57

And there were times where his knees would give him a lot of trouble. And so sometimes just, he would be standing in the prayer and his knees would just buckle. Knees are really really bad. Elderly. It was it was remarkable that he would stand and pray. So sometimes in the middle of the prayer, he would just have to kind of just sit down because knees would start to buckle.

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

very senior

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

She's very senior scholar.

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

And so we're traveling and he tells me to lead the prayer

00:40:08--> 00:40:14

time first ally says there's a there's a bunch of folks around local, you know, students and things like that kind of joining in and he's like OptinMonster go lead.

00:40:16--> 00:40:40

And at that moment, I'm like, absolutely not. Right? I was like, Oh, I just remembered I have to use the restroom. Right? It's like just just anything on lead the chef in prayer, right. And so but understanding at that point in time, to just do what he's asking me to do. That's what's more important. Abubakar Siddique are the Allahu taala. And when the prophets Allah told him to lead this Allah

00:40:43--> 00:40:49

He was just he he couldn't process the idea. He shadowed the Allahu taala. Anna was worried about his health.

00:40:51--> 00:41:02

She was worried about his well being itself, that if he has to stand on your prayer rug, oh prophet of Allah, He will like fall to the ground, he will cry, you'll roll up, like into a ball and just lay there and cry.

00:41:04--> 00:41:09

Because there will become real the idea that you're leaving. Like he can't fathom that.

00:41:10--> 00:41:27

We were in the process of said lead. He stood in lead and when the process of even came out while he was leading in the middle of the prayer, Abu Bakar, nothing Allahu taala No, almost like a physical reaction, muscle memory. He just started walking backwards. In the middle of the prayer while leading he started taking a step backwards. And the prophets alonnisos gestured and the

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

stay where you're at.

00:41:32--> 00:41:56

And again, he stood his place and he led the prayer because that's what the prophets Allah told him to do. So we see this particular lesson here, Abdullah bin Massoud starts reading and starts reading from Sultan and the prophets, a lot of them he says, very remarkably in the Bible, and that's my argument already. We talked about this, I love listening to others recite the Quran, and we talked about that. And realize one other thing I wanted to mention

00:41:57--> 00:42:30

a particular issue a dynamic of reading, listening to the recitation of the Quran, it is a rewarding act, it is an act of virtue, it is an act of reward, that is rewarded by Allah subhanaw taala. And there's etiquette to listen to the Quran as well. He's according to first me Allah, Who unscheduled Allah. When the Quran is read, then listen to it very carefully and very attentively and be quiet uncIe to be quiet, do not speak. Now under control Hamza, you may receive mercy from God.

00:42:32--> 00:42:42

And when he reaches that ayah, the prophet does the idea and the thought of the Day of Judgment, the Day of Resurrection, and then particularly thinking about the position that he's going to be put in,

00:42:43--> 00:42:57

just out of the grab just the out of the, the the magnitude of that moment, the weight of that responsibility, out of humility before Allah. He was crying out of humility.

00:42:58--> 00:43:14

His eyes welled up with tears and the tears started to flow from his eyes. So we again see how and why and where and when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would again be brought to these tears. The next narration, Hadith number three

00:43:16--> 00:43:17

of this chapter

00:43:19--> 00:43:26

Yes, and I forgot to mention the previous narration is also found in this key of human body and dissonant Have you been?

00:43:27--> 00:44:16

00:44:39--> 00:45:00

So allow me to just briefly translate this. Abdullah bin Amara, the Allahu taala anumana. He says that there was a solar eclipse one day during the time of the profits a lot of a sudden and the profits a lot of them stood and began to lead the prayer. And he stood for so long that it seemed like he would not go into record then he was

00:45:00--> 00:45:33

into core and then he stayed in rigor for so long that it seemed like he would not stand up again. And then he stood up again, then he stood there for so long that it seemed like he would not go into such depth, but then he went into such depth, then he was in such there for so long that it seemed like he would not raise his head again, and he raised his head up, he sat up, then it seemed like he would not go into such that again, because he sat there for so long, then he did such that, then again, it seemed like he would not raise his head up from the subject again, such that was so long. But then he sat up.

00:45:34--> 00:46:18

And he was started to make dua, and in some narrations and mentioned that he did not in the such that he started to make the DA in the such that he made the draft for jolly and for who, he started breathing very heavily, and he started crying, his voice was cracking, while he was saying, Oh, my Lord, my master, did you not promise me that you would not punish them while I was still amongst them? while I was still here with them? I'm still working on them. Don't give up on them. Oh, my Lord, my master, did you not promise me that you would not punish them so long as they continue to ask for forgiveness,

00:46:19--> 00:46:25

while we all together asked you for forgiveness or a law, that when he finished the two cars,

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

the son had basically the eclipse had ended.

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

And then he stood up.

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

And he prays and he thanked Allah subhanaw taala.

00:46:37--> 00:46:43

And then he said, that the sun and the moon are two signs from the signs of God.

00:46:45--> 00:46:47

They do not become eclipsed.

00:46:48--> 00:47:09

Due to someone's death, someone's passing, nor due to someone's birth, someone's arrival into this world. So whenever an eclipse occurs of the sun, or the moon, a solar or a lunar eclipse, then rush to the remembrance of God, rush to go and talk to Allah.

00:47:10--> 00:47:11


00:47:13--> 00:47:49

to explain this, first of all, we understand obviously, the concept of solar eclipse. But the very first point that is very obvious here is that the prophets, a lot of humans teaching us when these things happen, when the natural order of things changes. That is a time to go when connecting, becoming near and closer to a law, not to become a tourist. And go outside and stand looking up at the sky with your mouth open. Looking around, taking pictures, right Snapchatting right. Solar Eclipse guys cool, right?

00:47:50--> 00:47:57

No, that's not what it's time for. It's time to go and talk to a last panel wattana that's what it's time for.

00:47:58--> 00:48:41

Okay, that's the very that's the biggest lesson from this. Number two, we see the prayer of the prophets. A lot of him at the time of the eclipse was that he said elongate the prayer to cover the entire duration of the eclipse long the long group or long sujood extending the prayer making to are in the semester, and then the drive the profits. Again, sometimes the English doesn't translate very well from the Arabic that did you not promise me it sounds in English, kind of like someone's kind of whining or complaining or challenging? It's not what it is it tengo en la please, you promised me please or LA You promised me You would not punish them. While I'm still working with them. Please

00:48:41--> 00:48:52

give them more time. It was a request. And it shows that desperation. It shows the love and affection. It shows how much he cared about us how he never gave up on us.

00:48:54--> 00:49:16

And the really profound thing allotted to Alibaba mahonia safilo that you will not obliterate them you will not annihilate them, you will not destroy them. wipe them out like the nations of the past so long as they continue to seek forgiveness and that's why the prophets Allah teaches us that to seek forgiveness 100 times a day 100 times a day. A stuff it'll

00:49:18--> 00:49:22

say usually so far these differ the prophets a lot he said we'll do morning and evening

00:49:24--> 00:49:52

that's a constantly be asking a lot for forgiveness and to put it into really simple terms. For simple folks like myself, to just say that you're sorry to Allah, to say that to admit that you messed up our law. I'm wrong. I was wrong. I shouldn't have done this. I made a mistake. I'm going to try my best not to repeat this mistake. I'm going to try to fix my ways. Please give me another chance. And he will give you a chance every single time.

00:49:53--> 00:49:54

Every single time

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

or only a cinder block will call out to me. I will answer

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

I've been waiting to answer all along.

00:50:03--> 00:50:04

Just call out.

00:50:05--> 00:50:07

Just talk just ask

00:50:09--> 00:50:30

the beautiful Hadith of the prophets a lot he said where, when they when they're a third of the night remains at night, we're lost power with Allah proclaims, makes a proclamation Is there anyone wants to be forgiven? I forgive them. Just ask. That's all it takes.

00:50:31--> 00:51:09

And so that's something very remarkable mentioned here. Then when the prophets a lot isn't concluded, and he thanked the last panel wattana he said something very interesting about the sun in the moon being the signs of God, and saying that they do not become eclipses due to someone's death or someone's birth. Where is that exactly coming from? So there's two things. Number one, this was a problematic notion that people had under superstitious ideas like this that exists even till today. Very unfortunately, even in Muslim communities. There was a problematic idea notion that existed at that time, that the solar or the lunar eclipse would happen due to the passing of some great person

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

or due to the birth of a great child.

00:51:14--> 00:51:30

And the Prophet Joseph was dispelling with that notion. And secondly, some narrations mentioned that this solar eclipse happened the day after the passing of the son of the prophets allowed him Ibrahim and so the prophets a lot he said was explicitly saying absolutely No.

00:51:33--> 00:51:58

Absolutely not. It has nothing to do with that. And then the profits a lot of the time of course sells us rush to the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada and we see the profits a lot of the time again brought to tears asking for our forgiveness asking for our protection crying for us on our bf if that's that's the in the light of that second narration A day after he's lost a baby a child.

00:51:59--> 00:52:02

Think about how selfless someone is

00:52:03--> 00:52:06

where they're crying for someone else a day after they lost a child.

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

That is who the prophets a lot he said was

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

Hadith number four.
