salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Who does have the Nazi 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 subhanho wa Taala. We created a solution to make this possible. It's called
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 prayer.com. To sign up, share this resource with others, so that we can get back to not only just
offering our prayers or performing our Salah, but we can go back to experiencing a conversation and relationship with Allah.
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 Sierra intensive
human hunger law.
Hungry Allahu Akbar Ramadan arriba de Senado ohata Milan via
early Hill Ischia was Javi hill at the
Babel ma Jaffe furoshiki Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the chapter on the bed of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
hydrosoluble virgin, olive, olive the most hidden and he shared with me Ottawa abhi he an eyeshadow de la qualite in Americana, thirassia rasulillah he said a lot while he alayhi wa sallam, Allah vnm Allah, him and Adam in harsh Whoo hoo leave when.
So this chapter recovering
is regarding the bed of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
And this is the interesting thing about the study of the Shema and
that it gives you a personal tour of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Sometimes you'll be looking at his description, his physical features, while at other times you'll be looking into the house the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Sometimes you'll be looking into the kitchen and then realizing that the kitchen was his living room, which was his bedroom, which was his house.
And then at times, you're looking into the characteristics of the prophets of Allah while they would set them up close to the eyes of his companions and his wives, his humbleness, his crying, the prophets of Allah while he alayhi wa sallam,
his preferences the types of food he liked. The shaman is a very beautiful study of the prophets of Allah Han he was about I would say, along with the Sita, the Shema is kind of like peanut butter and jelly that is have to be together. You know, you can do both independently, but both together just really take it to a whole different level.
So in today's class, we're going to be discussing the first Hadeeth we have to cover today. The first idea leads us to the bed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This Hadith is narrated by eyeshadow, the Aloha eyeshadow the Aloha is the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who better to tell us about the prophets of Allah while he was phenoms, personal life than her. So she says while describing the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in Americana, furor Shu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah de Anima, la human adamant that the bed on which the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was slept with slept was made of leather. Now when
you look at the linguistic composure of this hadith right here, notice that the first word in her statement is in
what's the first word there?
In Nana, in Manila in the Arabic language comes for hustle, hustle, ha sought raw hustle.
Hustle means to limit something. Okay? So for example, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, in sha Allah Herman Abadi, hello healer Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala says the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala is restricted and limited to those people who have knowledge because a person who has
As knowledge will know what it means to be fearful of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. But a person who doesn't have knowledge they may think the actions they're doing. lead them to the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala but in reality they don't. So think of innama to be translated in English as only it's exclusive it creates exclusivity.
Now I shouted the Allahu Allah says in Americana, furoshiki Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indeed, the only thing the prophets that Allahu Allah who will send them asleep on was made of leather. So the first thing we need to learn and understand is that our shot at the lohana is making the statement of exclusivity.
When there are narrations that tell us that the Prophet sallallaahu it was said I'm stumped on different materials. And the symbolist is that sometimes the Prophet said a long while it was set him asleep on leather, sometimes the promise of a long while he was said I'm asleep on a film like a like a quilt but rather than having cotton in there, there would be
like here to an exorcist. hotshoe leaf. And this is an example of that. Sometimes he would only sleep on leather, but sometimes the leather would have something in it hashable hoomins, like a filling and leaf when is like the, the part of the palm tree that falls down. So a mix of branches and leaves and everything that's led just falls off that just sheds off of the tree, all of that would be gathered together and put inside. And then there are some narrations that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, would actually just sleep on the ground, he would be lying on the ground. Do we have another narration that the Prophet salallahu it was said on one one day when he
was lying down, he was lying down on a straw mat. So there are different things The Prophet said along while it was said and did lie on. So why is eyeshadow Viola Han had been saying in NEMA. If we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did lie on different materials. Well, the reason is because it's possible that when she's saying in them, she's trying to go exclusive. She's saying in my house, that when we were in my house, I only only saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lying on a leather, a leather skin that had a feeling of the shavings of
the palm tree. Or it could be the possibility. Another possibility could be that she's saying in NEMA. Only exclusively, while in her mind keeping the intent of majority of the time.
You guys understand that? While in her mind, keeping the intent majority of the time. It's kind of like someone that comes to you and says, Hey, what do you have for breakfast and you say eggs, I only have eggs. But in reality, even though that's majority of what you eat, you might have coffee with it too. Or maybe you might eat eggs 28 days out of the month of me the 29th and 30th day you might have something else. So it's kind of like she's saying majority of the time this is the sort of the spread the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sleep upon.
Now when we look at this sleeping habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what the prophets of Allah ohana was cinema sleep upon there's a few lessons that we learned. The first lesson and the most obvious lesson that we can take home is the simplicity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not engage in extra luxury, you know,
there's an element of luxury that a human being may need. But then there is that luxury, which is actually beyond you. And the nature of luxury is that once you adopt a little of it, you'll have to take the next part. And then when you take the next part, you'll need the part after that. It's kind of like this dream. The fact that the more or less the more you take luxury, the more you'll need it the more you take it, the kind of like painkillers The more you take it, the more you'll need it the more you take it, the more you need it until your last and luxury. That's why in one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yakata not be aware of living a super luxurious life. Don't
be that person who everything has to be luxury about every seat you sit in every garment you wear, everything that makes contact with your body, everything you make contact with. It has to be premium and ultra luxurious. yakata not be aware of living an ultra an extra super luxurious life. For in Nevada law, les Sue Bill matana II mean, for the true servants of Allah don't take all of their luxury in this world. They save some of it for the Hereafter, too. And you'll see this in the lives of the companions. I'm not going to photography Allah Juan during his khilafah he would spend the day hours serving people taking care of their affairs working through the registry, making sure
everything was in the right place at the right time. You know, he had a lot of management to do. One day he told one of his servants that
I'm really thirsty, can you please get a cup of water? So the servant thought to himself, oh my god, Allah one has been working all day. He must be so exhausted the heat, and he's taking care of the affairs of the Muslims. So let me do him one up rather than just getting him a cup of water. I'll give him a cup of Kool Aid. So he got a cold
A cup of water took a spoon of honey and mix it in there. And he brought it back to him out of the Ola one. A lot of the a lot one was given the water. He was just about to drink it and then he smelled the honey. And he put the cup down and he started crying. And his servant asked him, you know what meaning what makes you cry? And I'm adamant about it a lot. One responded back by saying, I worry that what a philosopher honohan Matata says to me on the Day of Judgment, I'd have to give it comfy Hayato madonia we'll start with some tatanka philleo metoda zona double Hoon, that you've taken all your luxuries in the world now there's no luxury for you in the hereafter. Now you have
the punishment of Allah subhana wa Tada. I shall do lawanna she used to always read the iron cry, while Madonna whom in Allahumma mucuna. To see boon that today they face that which they had no imagination of that they never thought they would face this but today they have to face this. So the companions there was a part of them living and even the process that a lot isn't there was a part of the struggle. Some people they say that the struggle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was much booty. You guys know on the cusp of much booty. It was forced upon him he had no other option. It's kind of like saying he he didn't have access to wealth he had to live a life of poverty. This
isn't true. Have the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked Allah to make the matters easy on him. When we ask Allah Allah gives us wealth you don't think you would have given it to us prophet if losers like us can make d'amato Allah sinners like us can say Allah give me give me so and so house they're giving me so and so car give me so one soul style of luxurious wedding of weekend ask Allah for wealth and Allah gives it to us. You don't think Allah subhanho wa Taala would give it to his beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course you would, the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam chose this life. There's a narration that someone asks a messenger of Allah,
why don't you ask Allah to give you wealth and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I prefer to live a life of struggle. So one day I can eat and one day I can fast I can be thankful and also be patient in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. There's a balance between both some days I'm thankful to Allah some days, I'm patient in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam adopted an immense amount of simplicity. And this brought a struggle with it. Now there is this
tough time that we have balancing between what is healthy luxury and what is not healthy luxury? Would you guys agree? There's this idea that At what point is luxury healthy for me? And at what point is luxury not healthy? For me? There was a similar question one at once asked to a scholar from India. Sure, I should have at least someone asked him chef.
He phrased the question in a different angles, I want to first address his question and answer that I'll come back to this question. He said,
What are your thoughts on buying? And rephrasing the question, by the way to make it relevant to you? What are your thoughts on buying a $10,000? suit? Is it permissible or not?
Yes or no?
Oh, very good. second year students, she knows how to answer me.
It depends. You're right. For those of you who said yes, it's permissible, wrong. Those of you who said no, it's not permissible. What's the answer there? It's wrong again. It depends. It depends on what it depends on the intent behind buying that and whether it's in your means or not. So there's two elements to it. First of all, is it in your means? How do you define your means? So are your watch button for taken care of? Why did you bought them five, there are those five those obligations that that relate to your wealth that are revealed by Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So for example, you're giving up
Zakat financially, providing for people who you are responsible, financially providing for you can't be driving like $100,000 car, while your mother or father who don't have a means of earning money are not taken care of. That's islamically not permissible, they become your responsibility, you need to look after them. And vice versa, parents are responsible for looking after their kids. So there are certain responsibilities that are by Allah subhanho wa, taala given and then there are certain responsibilities that come on to you because of certain actions you've done. So for example,
you've taken a loan from someone.
Now you need to pay that person back because of your action of taking money from them. Or it allows for Well, you destroyed someone's wealth. You did not have to give them money, but because you harm them now it's your responsibility to give them money back. If you owe someone money. Hear me out, guys. Okay? If you owe someone $20,000, maybe it's not a smart idea to book a flight and go to Boston to go shopping for your wedding. Maybe the smarter idea for you is to cut down the expenses. Loosen up your finances, if you have liquid cash, go and pay back to people who you've borrowed money from. Because the person that gave you that money had a lot of trust in you. And at this
point, you're destroying their trust. And at this point, you are a transgressor. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
As Martin Luther King evil, that the delaying and delaying of payment for a wealthy person is oppression, materials and even the delaying of payment for a wealthy person is oppression. If you have money, you take it, you go pay back. That's that element of it. Then the second part of it. So she said, there are two elements here. The first is that, can you afford it? Okay? So you've paid off your car, you've given yourself a call, you've taken care of everything. And yet law has given you so much Well, now you have surplus amount and you'd like to buy
just because you have a lot of money still doesn't make it permissible. Now, we have to ask the intent behind buying this is a second question.
What's the intent behind buying it?
So that at that point, he said, there are three intents that you can have. He has three Persian words, words. Zebra ish. ish. numa ish.
Zebra ish, are Irish numerische zabe. Irish zabe. Anyone know what that means? They wouldn't nice.
Beautiful for beautifying. The reason why you're buying this particular pair of shoes or the reason why you're buying this necklace or whatever it is that you're buying is because it makes you look beautiful. There's nothing wrong with buying that if you can afford it then if it's in within your means there's nothing wrong with you buying that because the deen is not against you looking beautiful in Allah tala Jamil on your humble. Gemma, Allah subhanaw taala is beautiful, and he loves beauty. The second intention is a rush around. Which means for comfort purposes, the reason why you're buying this car is because it has a comfortable seat. Right? Have you guys seen that new
thing that Nissan has these days? the Altima zero gravity, it's all book loss.
If there's any car that has zero gravity, it should give you a death certificate with it. Because in order for you to be driving zero gravity, I'd be lying down your spine should have no weight on it at all. It's all gimmicks. But anyway, if you fall for it, what do you know, if you're buying paying an extra 10,000 $20,000 and by the way, this isn't, I'm just messing around with you. legitimately, if you feel that this car or this pair of socks, or this fabric is more comfortable to your body, and you need it, go ahead and purchase it. And oh God, Nissan's gonna come after me now.
These Nissan's gonna be really angry that I just ripped them out in the lecture. And I'm gonna hope no one conveys My message to them.
Or the third, the third. So the first was zeva Irish comfort and beauty both are permissible. The third one which is not permissible is no matter. What does not mean to showing off to show off, you know, to put some other people's put someone else down. And believe it or not, in today's world, if you really dig down into this,
this monster that we've given birth to of consumerism within every human being that's at the core of it. This is actually what's at the core of most of it. People aren't content with what they have, because they have to prove that they are better than other people. You are judged in society for your worth based off of what you own. People don't care about the person inside you anymore. We live in a hyper sexual hyper consumerist environment, where it's all about the external, what happens inside what kind of brains a person has, what kind of character they have. You know, my teacher used to say if the if the Prophet of Allah was born in the West, no one would even turn their eye towards
him, sit alone while he was in him.
Because he wasn't a wealthy person. You know, in our community, we give attention to those people who have wealth, people who drive nice cars and fancy schmancy houses, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose a simple life. So if you're buying it with the intent of showing off, then it becomes haram altogether. Now coming back here, so that was one element of his answer. Now, I'm going to come back to the question here. What is the ruling or where is luxury permitted and where is it not permitted? Well, what point does luxury become not recommended anymore? By the way, let me tell you one more thing.
Where it may be permissible for you to buy that buy that $10,000 suit. What did I say? where it
may be permissible for you to buy that $10,000 suit does not mean it's recommended, by the way. It doesn't mean it's recommended. You know, there are some people honestly Allah has given them so much wealth Mashallah. But a point comes in their life, where they actually have no idea what to do with their money. They just don't know what to do with their money anymore. There was one brother he said to me shift let me show you my house. I went to his house. I kid you not at the end of the day, I thought this person was this last he didn't know what to do with his money anymore. He says to me shift to the washrooms I have here, every washroom was, I'm quoting him, every washroom in my house
was imported from another another continent.
None of the country What did I say?
Even though they all have the same function, you know, but this Holocaust just for the sake of it, you know, it's I can tell people that you know, when I I imported toilets from different continents of the world
He took me to this clock and said chip guess how much I bought this clock for? I said, I have no idea. Like, probably something really expensive. The one I'd buy from Walmart would probably be 100 bucks Bed Bath and Beyond 200 bucks. I don't know how much is this one right here $10,000 $10,000 and I kid you not, I couldn't tell the time on the clock.
It was so sophisticated. I mean, that's the purpose behind it. That's very sophisticated. It requires a brain to read that clock and a brain that I didn't have or cells that I didn't want to donate that cause
so even if it even if there is permission in the Dean of living a luxurious life, it's definitely not recommended. The prophets of aloha do some didn't like it. Once he was walking in Medina when I went to settle on a with cinnamon he saw a person who built a two storey building, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam inquired, whose houses they said O Messenger of Allah belong to so and so person. The Prophet said a lot of it was said and went back. And then that maybe the same day or next day that's the hobby came and greeted, the purpose of the lahardee was set up. And when he greeted the profit of a lot of the profits of a lot of them turned his face away. He didn't reply to
a set up. Then he greeted him again. The Prophet said a lot of some turned his face away, and didn't reply to his set up.
This man asked other companions, why is the Prophet are responding to my Salaam? It's as if he's upset with me. They said earlier, the prophet went for a stroll, and he saw this two storey building and the Prophet didn't like it. You know what he did to that building?
take a wild guess.
He knocked it down. He demolished it. He demolished his two storey building. He said that if this building brings anger or displeasure to the prophets that allow on instead of I don't want it, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then spoke to the companions and said to them, that if a person needs I mean, you have to understand two story building. The reason why the prophet SAW something like it is because in Medina Manoa, there was scope to build wider buildings as opposed to taller buildings you can choose between wider and taller buildings. The purpose of the law while it was someone's preference, was that it remains on one floor wider as opposed to going taller, because
when you go taller, then it becomes a matter of fun. I'm at our pride that I built taller and then the person next to you wants to build three storeys and four storeys and before you know it, we have a golf when everyone's competing with each other who can build the tallest building. Again, the whole thing you have so much money where you don't know what to do anymore.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't like that he's telling, he's telling the companions that you don't build beyond that there's one narration and was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the companions never get invested never sell yourself to becoming
a property tycoon. You know, people who just keep buying properties, properties, properties, properties. There's a cut behind this, the prophets have a lot of fun. I'm actually disliked this in another narration. And once the hobby asked why, and the Prophet said a lot of it was said because it puts a seed of love in the dunya on your in your heart, that's very hard to take out there.
Was that Sorry? What's the hardest? I'm thinking of it? Let me think about it. I have it in my mind, I just slipped me if I can, if I can recall it. By the end of the class, I'll remind you Yes.
Sitting on property, just sitting on property, buying and buying and buying into sitting on a lot of property.
If you're renting it out as a business, then that's that's a business for you. I'm talking about buying property and just just sitting on it, you know, some people that is buy and sit on it. That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, disliked, and there's a lot more to it. If a person is doing it as a legitimate business, if that's the way Like for example, flipping homes, or doing an Airbnb, or doing just renting your properties out. That's another thing.
If I can remember that, I'll share with you guys and maybe we'll discuss it.
if a person wishes to live a luxurious life, at what point is it not like anymore where it becomes khata mcru dislike where you need to step away from that lifestyle. So the scholars they say, it comes when your luxury reaches the point that it begins to pull you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and to fulfill your obligations to your dean.
And it'll do it'll do that to you. You know, that's what it does to you. You'll just get so caught in your comfortable chair, your your lazy couches and you know, your nice comfortable warm blankets and you just get so lost with your shopping, then you end up losing sight on your obligations ahead of you. And Islam is constantly reminding us not to become materialist people.
There's one Hadith.
According to some narrations, it's much more meaning it's narrated from the prophets that allow an incident and according to other narrations, it's most you'll find the Allah one meaning this is a statement of a little bit of that with the Allah one where he told his students he told his companions it was the highlighted dunya must be rotten water Allah tell al Qaeda to mockbee Latin when akula hit him in Houma Alba noon for kulu manana Allah Farah takumin urbanite. Dunya. Finally, Omar Ahmed and Wallah Hassan Hassan Ahmed
he's a travel with the acid Are they here after in front of you in with the world and it's pleasures behind you. You know when you're driving a car, on the highway, we started
Is your site in front of you.
You keep your hands on the car on the steering wheel then you drive. If by chance you need to get something
you will reach back ask someone else to get it for you. First you'll say hey, can you get something for me? No one else was there. Maybe you'll keep your eyes on the road. Try to see if you can reach back there while keeping your eyes and being focused there. You reach back into the get whatever you need, so you can move forward. If you really must, then you pull over to the side for a few moments you go pull out whatever you need from the backseat and back on your journey. How foolish will the person be who's looking for a pop cat in the backseat in the middle on the you know, in the middle of nowhere on highway 55 and this pulls up on the shoulder and says, Oh, this backseat.
It's so pleasurable. I'm just gonna This is it. I'm not going to wherever I was supposed to go. I'm just it's me in my backseat now. And that person becomes like, you know, a gypsy, no person would would have any praise for that sort of that sort of an attitude in at the hospital Akira to MK Billiton ticker Akira in front of you.
What are the highlighted dounia mucho para nada para tener Nikita dunia when I say duni I'm talking about those pleasures of the world that turn you away from the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada. Keep them behind you. Turn to them when in necessity but don't make them your goal of living. When he couldn't see them in Houma Albanian because the to the dunya and akhira this world and the hereafter. Both have their servants and slaves for Kunal Mariana and Sarah be the slaves of the hereafter. Well, that's a cool woman urbanite. Dunya Don't be the slaves of this world. Finally, oma amo don't wanna sir because today you can do whatever you want, and there's no accounting. Well
done. Well, but tomorrow there will be accounting and you won't get a chance to do good deeds anymore. Focus on your good deeds today.
Now another thing actually, let's read the next Hadeeth and then after that, I will link in the second point that I wanted to make.
Had the Abu hapa Ziad Abu Yahya al basri. Called hypothenar Abdullah bin mamoon Kala hypothenar Jaffa
even though Mohammed and Avi Allah so Allah eyeshadow, Allahu Allah Wa sulit hopsital radi Allahu Allah makara Rashi Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam few basic pilot Miss Han next Li feni attain?

so this hadith is narrated by Ayesha de la Juana and also the narration that we're going to come to it along on her. this very same question was also that I showed the Alona will be asked this very same question was also asked to have started the long line so if you look anatomy here, it says
an A B in the third line Tyler suey let our Isha to was to elect hopsital. It has both both of his wives. It says that this question was asked to Ayesha Ilona and it was also asked to have started the alarm on her haapsalu the Allahu anhu How is she related to the Prophet of Allah?
She's his wife whose daughter is she? Oh, my god along ones. I showed it along and how is she married to the purpose of Law Center. His wife, the daughter of Abu Bakr Siddiq. Guardiola who wants Abu Bakr Siddiq was a long one and oh my god, a long one. We're both the father in laws of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with mine and Alia the Allahu Anima were both the son in laws of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So they asked, they said How was the better the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your home? She replied, It was made of leather, in which was filled the quarter of the date pump. House lot of the alarm went on was also asked, how was the bed of the messengers that alarm it was sitting in your home? She replied. It was a canvas folded into two, which was a spread of that for the messenger sallallahu. It was him to sleep one. On one night I folded it
into four and spread it so it becomes softer. I folded it and spread it that way. In the morning, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks, What did you spread for me last night, I replied. It was the same bed I only forward it folded it into four so that it may become softer. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, leave it in its original form. Its softness deprive me of my prayers at night meaning 200 salam
So in this how do you what's happening here is that what is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said again
one thing spread like a little, if you want to call it a blanket if you want to thin one, don't think of your fluffy furry quilt. comforter stuff. Don't think of that. That's not what we're talking about here at all. Okay, that was like, unimaginable. We're talking about just a thin blanket. The Prophet said a long while he was sitting with generally sleep on that. One night Huff's out of the alarm line, I thought to herself that we fold this blanket into half and we have some extra space by the prophets feet. There's still more space there. How about I fold it one more time? So she folded it one more time. But when she folded up one more time, and the Prophet slept that
night, he woke up in the morning and said, What did you guys do to my bed? They said a messenger of Allah. Nothing, we just folded it one more time. It's the same bed that you always sleep on. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that you folding it one more time almost caused me to miss my soul. Ah, the softness of the softness of the bed was a hindrance in waking up for prayer. Have any of you guys ever done antiochian dimension before?
Yeah, you know, you're, you're in the mercy of a family or maybe you're traveling somewhere, and you spend a night of the budget. Or maybe you're in the machine and you just decide to take a one hour nap because there's like an hour left before someone picks you up or an hour or you got there an hour before class. When you sleep on the ground, how comfortable Do you get into your sleep?
not comfortable at all. When I sleep in the middle of the night, when I when I would do a take off and I was sleeping too much that would think to myself Yeah, law one will then call the other.
can fuck confessor start already. On the other hand, when you're sleeping in your bed, you can you think yourself when will the oven stop calling the alarm.
I'm enjoying the sleep too much. I don't want someone to wake me up. I'm enjoying it too much. It's so comfortable. And that level of luxury that we have in our beds is ridiculous. Have you guys seen that purple mattress, the one that they have this crazy marketing campaign on Facebook, it's known as one of the most successful marketing campaigns of a mattress ever. You guys haven't seen the purple mattress, I'm sure you guys have seen it's got like, probably over 100 million views.
The way they market these things I was looking at and I was thinking to myself, man, I need a purple mattress. Even though what I have is an humbler. You know, it's and then you have the the ones with the pillow tops, you know the pillow cushion on the top of it. Then you have memory foam, then you have the one that has his and hers different settings, you get to control the temperature of your bed. And some of them the top of the veterans into a heating blanket. You guys when I'm talking about and then you can choose how high your feet will be how low your back will be.
It's the miracle if you wake up for fighter salon.
It'll be a miracle if you wake up. If you're really struggling with your salon, minimize your comfort a little bit. Ask yourself where can I cut back on my comfort. Don't keep looking for more and more luxury. Find a way to cut back. If you don't trust me, sleep on the ground, not on your hotel, those rounds are nasty.
But when you go back home, sleep on your ground for a night or two. And I'm telling you like you'll feel fresher most likely in shock for me the first day of back will hurt a little, but you'll get used to it. And you'll notice that you don't need to sleep as much as you think you need to sleep. Another thing that you'll notice, you know, when I was in my home,
when I was in Chicago, one of the things that we never did was we never put up blinds, we never put up blinds in our homes. And we never have thick curtains ice only keep shear just so that no one can see what's happening inside just for privacy purposes. And the idea was that when the sun comes up, everyone in the house wakes up. That's it. When the sun goes down, you go to sleep when the sun wakes up, everyone wake up, nobody sleeps through 12 o'clock and 11 o'clock, you know, and two, three o'clock and some people they like there was one friend of ours when we were in Madrid so he was from New Zealand. He used to come and Kiwi.
He literally went to sleep like on Thursday or Friday and woke up on Sunday or Monday.
It's like copy and paste gone bad cut and paste. He had cut and forgot to paste it back two days of his life for this class caught on. They didn't come back. Some people do sleep so much. And it's not a healthy thing. mm casada como la Donna says that if you sleep eight hours every day at the age of 60, you slept for 20 years of your life.
Makes sense, right? It is one third of 2424 hours in a day. If you sleep eight hours a day, what's one third of six years? 20 years you slept for 60 years of your 20 years of your life? What are you going to do good deeds and out of that 130 are probably going to spend working and then another one we know what's the third that's left? You've probably spent one third playing and then you know, by the time it comes to it, that you only have a few hours of a bother to even present to a lot out of 60 7080 years of your life.
Allah when he talks about sleep,
he refers to it as a hindrance to life. Not a disruption to life. What is your
he says sleeping is a disruption to
being awake. When he when he uses that language he calls it he calls a theme where you're kind of canceling it out such an interesting language. Because, you know, when it comes I'll be honest with you guys when it comes to me.
When, as the hours get closer for me to sleep, my heart starts getting lighter and lighter and lighter. Mentally I start feeling more relaxed, I get more happy knowing that I'm very close to being home, I'll be on my bed I'll relax. And I was obvious saying that in our generation, the closer we got to sleep, the more frustrated we got. Because we wanted to be awake to do more a bother. It was like a barrier. It was a disturbance in our in our life. Going to sleep it was a burden upon us. And when time came for us to wake up, everyone would jump up on their feet. You know, and in our day and age when as the time gets closer to go to sleep, we start thinking to
10 o'clock. I've already had my meal get into my PJs, binge for another two hours, get in my bed crash out sleep for like eight nine hours. You know the excitement that comes with me describing it some of you guys are smiling already Mashallah.
And then when I tell you you have to wake up 5am in the morning stress
and then you have to drive half an hour more stress. attend class for eight hours more stress. You guys see that? We it's like waking up is a disturbance to us. And going to sleep is the it's a it's a convenience. That's the comfort while they're on holiday. saying there was a nation where that was the other way around. For them waking up was joy. They enjoyed it so much. They enjoyed listening to them rather than saying a sweat out to heighten
mean unknown. They enjoyed them what I've been saying a law about a law awkward because what they were going to, they enjoyed it so much. And if you don't believe this is this is possibility. You know, kids, when they wake up in the morning, how happy they are. The younger kids, I'm talking about the five, six year old kids, you know, when you're telling them Come on, wake up at school time, what happens to them, they jump to their feet right away in the washroom before they even brush their teeth are ready to run out of the door. And then you have to go tell them no go back. You know, we can't leave the house that quickly because they have an excitement. There are people
they want to meet, there are things they want to do. There are things they want to accomplish. There's a joy to it, there's a joy to life. So learn to minimize your luxury, try to cut it on Ask yourself, where can I cut back on my luxury? Maybe my comfort, my comfort is too luxurious. Maybe my mattress needs to go down a notch or two, maybe I should test it. It may or may not work. I'm not saying to hurt yourself. That's not what we're advocating for here. But learn to cut back on your luxury. now. I'll come to you in a moment. I just want to make a few points. There's one or two things I'll actually go ahead let's take your point.
Is there any significance in the Prophet sallallahu it was said I'm having different mattresses in different wives homes.
They used what they had.
You understand that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when it came to his possessions. He wasn't like a picky Amazon shopper where everything had to be from one company one color one style in Madina munawwara Most of it was what you took you took what you had. One time someone came to my teachers teacher shifts, I could hear him all along with data and asked him Is it sooner to start your meal with something sweet or something salty? Because there are both narration some narration say the prophet SAW said I'm starting this meal with something salty. And some narration say he started his meal with something sweet. So someone asked you on how do you shift zaccaria Rahim Allah
Tada. Is it sooner to start the meal with something?
Meat etc. And I'm kimchi. So this is the question and answers and then I'll translate it in English. He goes has it Carlos
namkeen Jesus you cannot tell me he said he said to him faster sooner
you asking me you know he asked me that similar to start your meal with something sweet or something salty. He said you want another real soon not starvation.
That's the sun and that's like should have a zucchini or should I have like, you know, samosa us neither. If you haven't Alhamdulillah you take it if it's there in front of you take it you don't do like you know you don't turn away from the the favorite of the light on the front of the camera. But when it came to the purpose that a lot of what the prophet said aloud is sort of more what it was what was available. You guys understand that that's what was available. That's what the prophet said a lot of cinnamon where his slippers what was available that's what the props that along it was said what have his personal belongings Most of it was what?
what was available. That's what the prophet said a lot of them took. He didn't find in his house that he had, like, you know, exclusive things from across the world. These infomercial
gadgets lying around his house, that wasn't the purpose of a lot of them. In one narration, I'm gonna be alone. I'm vlogging now but I'm delivering them so that the other one says I came to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and all I saw was a mattress and a water jug. That was everything that he had.
had in that house does everything that he had
in order to understand the simplicity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
I'll share one thing with you all. When do you actually want narration
there's a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by the name of one of the top.
You've all heard of him before. Someone very close to the office that allowed is sort of
according to some narrations, he was the 14th person to accept Islam. at distance, he's also a relative of the Prophet that allowed him from his lineage, and obviously he marries the prophets daughter.
So one day out of the Allahu lon, he went to half side of the lohana someone came and told him about the Allah one, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a quarrel and disagreement with some of his wives. And the disagreement has prolonged and people are chatting and they're talking about maybe the prophet may have divorced his wife's
so that rumors started spreading in Medina when it reached out to your loved ones ears, that the prophet may have divorced his wives. He kind of had a panic attack, because one of the prophets wives was his daughter Huff's out of the oven, the one who's narrating this honey, have started the alarm on him. So he got up from there and ran. And he went to By the way, the prophet said a lot while he was sitting during this period, he had a separation with all of his wives for roughly a month, roughly a month apart all sudden, he took separation from his wives, which is very interesting because it shows us how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a human being. He
had struggles in his marriage, not once but many times. Having struggles doesn't show a weak person. But dealing with your struggles properly shows you truly a strong person. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was separated from them.
Oh my god, Allah one runs to his house and says, Is it true the Prophet has divorced his wives? She says to him, this is an eternal affair between us and the prophets. We prefer that you guys stay out of it.
And I'm going to do a lot one says oh, that's what's happening here. You know what I'm gonna I'm gonna go and ask the Prophet himself. He comes to the house with the Prophet was saying the Prophet was on the upper floor at the bottom of the staircase there was unsavoury there. The Prophet told that's a hobby, don't let anyone up. So I'm going to do law one came, he told that person I want to go up to meet the Prophet.
That's a hobby. So the Prophet said, Nobody goes up. He said, Why don't you go tell the prophets Allah and the prophet will make an exception. So he went up and said, O Messenger of Allah, Ahmad is here.
The Prophet stayed quiet.
He came back down and said, the prophet didn't say yes, so you can't go up. He said, asked one more time. He went up again, came back down the prophets quiet. Although the last one on third time he shouted himself a messenger of Allah, it's me.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, okay, let him come up. So I'm gonna be a lot one came up.
When he came up the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set straight, he was lying down, he sat up.
And at that time, the prophet was lying on a straw mat which led him which left imprints on his shoulder, the straw that left imprints on his shoulder, and I'm going to be a lot one he started crying and he said, a messenger of Allah. Look at the Roman and Persian kings, they're lying on comfortable beds enjoying themselves in here you are.
You have these marks in your shoulder because of your sleeping, you know, you're just lying down. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I'm a total vayama and takuna lahoma Daniela and one narration is sitting on tiama which means even you
even you started judging the success of a person based off of what kind of bed they sleep on. And then he said to him Oman, does it not please you that Allah gives them luxuries in this world and gives us luxury in the hereafter will take the luxuries then a little struggle today, no problem. We'll take the luxury then inshallah Geez. And it shows you the simplicity of the prophets of Allah audio cinema, you know, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam desired this, and I'm going to be a lot one himself adopted this, by the way, not only him, all of his companions, you'll find narrations of abubaker, almost 90, all of them. When they needed to sleep, they would just come to
the machine lie down and go to sleep. There's one Sahabi Who says I saw the process of a long while he was sleeping in the machine, Mr. altean a while his neck was flat on the ground. The Prophet is lying on his back, and the Prophet crossed one foot over the other foot. Right, he crossed one foot over the other foot, and he was lying there. And Amato, the last one was known for this he used to take as he would take his afternoon nap in the machine itself. One time, some Persian generals came to meet him and they said, We want to meet your leader. And they walked into the machine and they took him he was lying in the corner of the month, just sleeping. And they said, this guy's your
leader. He's the guy whose armies are like shaking down the Roman and Persian empires. Like, that's it. This is the guy right here. And they said, Yep, this is the guy right here. See these people? Someone asked him out of the law one. How do you sleep without any protection? How do you walk around because you didn't have any guard that would stand with him and protect him from people. He would say, I don't need any protection because it's in the best interest of the people that I stay alive.
So everyone will
The minimum Dena munawwara is my bodyguard because they all want me to stay alive because they know I'm a just person. As long as I'm alive, they'll find justice. As long as I'm alive, they'll find simplicity they'll find and all under the law, one of the Sahaba they were very wary of these luxurious lives. You know, when the wealth came from Persia, when all the wealth came from Persia to Medina, Managua.
It was piled in front of Alma de la one it was like a little mountain, a little hill. And the other one was walking around it right before he distributed it and he was crying. He had tears in his eyes. And someone said to him, a Yom Yom we'll find out today is $1 a day of joy. Why are you crying? So I'm in a meeting on marijuana photography a lot one said in the huddle,
let me Atilla Coleman, in LA Alka Lavina humann adalberto Alibaba. My experience in my study of humanity shows that wherever wealth comes to hearts will always separate they can get close to one another, rivalry or will come, animosity will come, hatred will come and the simplicity and the beauty of Madina munawwara won't ever be like this anymore. Madina munawwara will change after we distribute this wealth, the people of Medina munawwara will be very different people.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we learn here, his bed was very simple. It was folded twice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that it prevented me from praying my soul. Now one thing I want to mention that the second Hadith that we read right here
this hadith is actually a week narration right?
This because it's a weak narration doesn't mean we need to discard it. But for your reference, it's good to note down that the second honey through right here
the 18 not only have they classified as weak, but they actually class it as it's not the whole life didn't it's a very weak narration.
So it's not that down in your notes so you know, that when you are sharing the sort of Hadeeth if anything if you need to bring it like a mom did with you did your mom tell me that mo loud Donna does this will bring a Hadid like this that's weak, not because he didn't know it was weak. FYI, like I'm dealing with he knew it was weak. But the reason why he brought it in the book is because he's bringing it as a supportive narration. The first narration is an authentic narration. It's in a mountain with an underlying it brings it himself in his in his genre, the first narration Mm hmm. It also brings it in my Muslim Rahmatullah. It also narrates it without narrative, an imaginary it's
the first narration is a very common one. So that's the foundation of the narration of the chapter versus an authentic narration, the weak narration, he's bringing it as a support to the earlier narration. He's not using the weak narration to establish a new concept. So in that sort of a scope or that sort of a role, there's nothing wrong with having a weak narration in in the chapter.
lamjao to hilang coman illa Allah Allahu ala whom Allah azza wa jal Baba,
but Allah place hatred and animosity between them.
They did. What happened with that situation? The prompts that a lot of them did. So a lot of the a lot one came there because he was worried that the Prophet said a lot harder. He was from divorced his wives, so I'm going to do law one. Now he had to speak to the Prophet he didn't know what to do. So what he did was he he said, he thought you know what, let me say something that'll lighten up the mood a little bit. He said a messenger of Allah we should have stayed in Macau because they're the women weren't so feisty.
They're you know, people, different communities, that different cultures, different communities, different cultures, and it's a very natural thing. So the women in Mocambo karma, they had a different
different culture. And the women in Medina when I when I had a very different culture, the women in Medina will know what we're known for being very outspoken. In one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually praised him for that. He said, How beautiful are the women of the unsought that, quote unquote, modesty doesn't stop them from asking their questions. When they have their questions, they come and ask the women of Mocambo karma they were a little shy, a little quieter, you know, it's a different culture, different, different, different society. But the women in Medina No wonder they have a very different approach. And when the Muslim women arrived from Mocambo karma
to Madina, munawwara they adopted the new culture, which is a very, it happens if you move from one culture to another if you move from one city to another city, the way you speak, the way you speak, starts changing you know, the way you dress it'll start changing the culture comes on to person one thing interesting though, from that narration is that even though and the process that a lot of things smile he said yes, you're right. Things have changed since we arrived in Medina manana, but the province of Milan while it was some never called on his wives
The change in attitude if I may say, you understand that he accommodated it. So when I showed the law Juana takes the bowl and smashes it on the ground, because another wife sends food on his day on her day, he doesn't like lay the SmackDown on her, but hold on off what they love Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Prophet would never do that. But you guys understand what I'm saying? He doesn't start shouting at her and start pushing her and what are you doing and get back inside, go clean the kitchen, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rather what he does is he realizes this is our temperament. And he accepts that. He tells her to go inside. He cleans up the mess there. In
one narration, he gave the servants some money and said buyable On the way back and give it their simple, you know, hold on. Yes.
Sure, why not? That could be that could be that could be a perspective that women are more involved in the commerce of Medina Manoa because they were involved in in farming men and women, both Eastern farming and McComber karma. There was no farming there was the data there in many societies. That works. Sure.
Anything else? Any questions before we close today? Yes.
The first one is what Madonna who made Allahumma mucuna. You have to see one.
Can someone pull it up? Maybe you can. Someone can pull up the exact pseudo number an EIN number and
share it. And the other one was,
I'd have to forgive it. confy Hayato madonia was sent out on behalf
and again, someone can pull that up for me too, if you don't mind. I'm sure there's five here.
So you can pull it up in Shaolin shirt.
Okay, inshallah, with that we'll close our gathering. Tomorrow inshallah we'll read the next chapter. Tomorrow. We have many more to cover, but again, it's such a beautiful chapter, the humility of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So tomorrow inshallah we'll cover that. Somehow Allah he'll be handy. He's from Haleakala homovanillic shadow Allah, Allah, Allah and stuff.
