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 subhanho wa 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 the last panel wattana 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

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 in mohammedia, the prophetic personality, the following session was recorded at the Syrah intensive

00:03:15--> 00:03:26

avenge or seek retribution or seek vengeance, due to a wrong that was done to him ever. As long as

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

the limits set by Allah subhanaw taala had not been transgressed.

00:03:35--> 00:03:46

And if one of the limits set by Allah had been transgressed, then he was very stern and severe in dealing with it,

00:03:48--> 00:03:56

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam never, whenever the prophets a lot, he seldom had an option between two different

00:03:58--> 00:04:13

whenever the profits allowed him or two different options, he always chose the simpler or the easier of the two. So long as it would not involve the it would not involve any sin.

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

In this particular narration.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

Before we get started with the actual explanation of the narration,

00:04:28--> 00:04:52

before we get started with the explanation of the narration, there is a little point that I would like to mention, and that is that in the chain of narration, there is a particular notable individual and that is for Dale even Ayub Rahim, Allahu taala, who was the teacher of you, Mama chef, you're either from Allahu taala.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Nevertheless, proceeding forward, I shout out the Allahu taala on how she narrates about the prophets a lot. He sent him here.

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

Is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never sought any type of vengeance or retribution, the prophets a lot. He said, I'm never sought to get someone back for anything wrong that might have been done to him. That was not from the character of the prophets, a lot of the some of the prophets a lot. He seldom was very selfless in that regard. And there's many examples, dozens, hundreds of examples of that in the lifetime of the profits a lot of the time, but just to give you one tangible, very,

00:05:29--> 00:06:08

very glaring example of this is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was poisoned by a woman, a Jewish woman when they had gone for the Battle of labor. And while they were there, this woman had sent food for the profits a lot so and she had poisoned the food, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he, himself did not seek any retribution for it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he realized when he was informed by Ali Salaam, that the food is poisoned to not eat it. The prophets a lot, he said, I'm immediately left the food, and did not seek out the woman for any type of retribution.

00:06:09--> 00:06:48

In fact, the prophets, a lot of them told the Sahaba to let her go. However, the entirety of the narration is that there was another person eating with the profits a lot, he said him, he had eaten some of the food, eventually he would succumb to the effects of the poison, and he would die. And then and only then was the woman basically brought forth for retribution and for sentencing. But initially, when the prophets, a lot of them himself, involved himself, the prophets, a lot of them told the Sahaba to release her into let her go. And that was the character of the prophets, a lot of the time, he never sought out personal vengeance or retribution. He never was interested in avenging

00:06:48--> 00:07:15

anyone for anything that was done to him personally. Otherwise, you have so many different instances in cases another very powerful example is that Abu sufian, Abu sufian, radi Allahu taala and who later on except to some abusive Yon was the one who led the army in the Battle of boyhood, he was also the head of the army, the commander in chief of the allied armies, that attack Medina and the Battle of the trench. And specifically in the Battle of Ohio, there's a very,

00:07:16--> 00:07:28

very jarring moment where the prophets a lot he said, he himself has been attacked and been injured badly. And as the Quraysh the Mexican army is basically leaving their hood

00:07:29--> 00:07:37

Abou soufiane standing there makes a proclamation where he basically boasts and brags about the

00:07:38--> 00:08:21

the the losses that the Muslims have incurred, that the that the the victory, basically, that the Qureshi has been able to achieve the people that they've killed. And he's kind of bragging and boasting about this. And while doing so, he specifically makes a particular comment, that was very jarring at that moment, he says that, that you do nothing at the lack of Musleh that you will find that some of your dead, some of those who have been killed from amongst you, that you do not see katella camouflage, you will find that some of them have been mutilated Lem ammo to be here, while I'm unhappy. I did not tell them to do it. But I did not stop them from doing it either. Which

00:08:21--> 00:08:30

basically, what he's saying is that this wasn't my idea. However, I saw it happening. I was aware of the fact that this was occurring, and I did not feel the need to prevent it.

00:08:31--> 00:08:56

Now at that point in time, that's very scary to hear that. And of course, it would only get worse. When the worst fears of the prophets, a lot of them would be realized when they would go into the battlefield to survey the dead afterwards and they would find the martyred and they would find the uncle of the prophet to lobby sometimes out of the Allahu taala and who, who had not only been assassinated not only been killed and martyred but he had also been mutilated.

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

And the profits a lot of the some, no doubt remembered abusive hands Proclamation.

00:09:04--> 00:09:17

But years later, when abusive young is sitting in front of the profits a lot he sent him begging and pleading for his life and for the safety of his family and the safety of his people. Before they entered into mecca for the conquest of Makkah.

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

The prophets Allah is the same man who soufiane sitting in front of them begging and pleading.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

How easy would it have been for the prophets allowed him to avenge?

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

What happened to his uncle,

00:09:30--> 00:09:39

but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forgives him and in fact honors him by saying Abu sufian is the leader of his people. So anyone that goes into the home of Abu sufian will be safe.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

So much so that the woman who had actually hired the assassin that would take out homes out of the Allahu taala know Hindi binter arja, Abu sufian, his wife,

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

and the process of son was aware of the fact that she was responsible for the death of her of his uncle. And not only that, she was the one who had basically

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

mutilated and asked, you know, instructed them to mutilate his body.

00:10:06--> 00:10:13

When she is in front of the profits a lot, he said once again, he does not seek out any type of vengeance. He's not vengeful at all, but he forgives her.

00:10:16--> 00:10:39

And, in fact, the assassin himself washy, who pulled the trigger, so to speak. When he comes before the profits, a lot of the some of the profits or some doesn't hold it against him. That was not the character of the profits. A lot of them had mentioned. However, the only time the profits a lot of them took some type of drastic measures against someone was when implementing the law in the command of God.

00:10:40--> 00:10:48

When carrying out the justice that Allah subhanaw taala had ordained, that was the only time when the prophets allowed him was harsh and in stern and severe.

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

And then it also goes on to mention that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:56--> 00:11:11

he must have been on rainy whenever the profits a lot he said he had two options in front of him, aka a seroma the Prophet sallallahu Sallam always took the simpler and the easier of the two and there but as long as it did not involve some type of sin,

00:11:12--> 00:11:17

and that also was done as a Mercy by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:18--> 00:11:22

as our role model, that to teach us the fact

00:11:23--> 00:11:37

that there is no we do not have the concept we do not have the idea of self flagellation that we do not torture and torment ourselves in some strange pursuit of piety and nobility.

00:11:38--> 00:11:51

But our Deen our religion is a very practical one, a very beautiful one, one that meshes and merges and flows seamlessly throughout our lives, all aspects of our life, our everyday lives.

00:11:54--> 00:12:33

In this generation, the word muslimah can also be pronounced as mazuma or muslimah. And it basically refers to something that is done to someone undeserving whether you harm their body or you harm their dignity or you harm their wealth, that that's what it refers to that no matter what somebody had done against the profits, a lot of them he would not seek retribution and vengeance. The last part of the narration, he says Mamma mia could matter man, as long as the processing would always take the easier of the two options, so long as it did not involve some type of sin generation of Bahati says Finn gonna implement ghanaba dementia and who can abandon it mean who that is a course

00:12:33--> 00:12:57

of action did involve some type of sin, some transgression, some disobedience of God, the prophets, a lot of them would completely stay away from it. In the narration of Bharani it says, madam yaku lelaki fie sacaton that the prophets Allah the same will take the easier the two options so as long so long as it would not involve the anger in the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala it would not be displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:58--> 00:13:03

the next generation kahlen masani Phu had the Santa ignore a bee on Omar,

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

it's a call CIE.

00:13:40--> 00:14:13

In this narration I shadowed the Allahu taala Anna she says that a man sought permission to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to enter upon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam while I was with him, he shadow the Allahu taala and her mother of the believers. She says I was with the prophets a lot so and the prophets a lot he seems to kind of notify me and this is of course again, his wife is not the prophet to love even talking about this in public, but he's talking to his wife to notify her the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he is a very troublesome individual of his people.

00:14:14--> 00:14:18

Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam allowed him to enter.

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

And the prophets Allah spoke to him very graciously.

00:14:23--> 00:14:56

When the men left, our era, the Allahu taala and he says that I said, O Messenger of God, you said what you said, but then you were very gracious in speaking to him. The prophets a lot of them said, Oh Isha, that the worst of the people are those whom the people leave and abandon the people, the worst of the people are those whom people avoid. Or he said that the the worst of the people are those who people avoid trying to protect themselves from their evil.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Now to explain this

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

Shadow the Allahu talana already commented this during the translation that first and foremost a prophecy of someone sitting without a shadow of the Allahu taala. On her, yes, she relays this to us. She realizes to us, but what's notable is that the prophets, a lot of them, this is not a scenario where he's, you know, backbiting someone or talking bad about someone and being well, I have to be law, God forbid, this is, you know, unimaginable for the Messenger of Allah Salaam, that he's somehow being two faced. That is not the case at all, because it wasn't a public setting, it was his own life, and it was in his home.

00:15:33--> 00:15:51

And a person's first responsibility is to their family, to the people that they are responsible for the safety of, so he's notifying her, that I, I'm going to be very cautious in how I interact with this person. And I need you similarly to be very cautious, you know, when this person is around,

00:15:52--> 00:16:04

and so now Yes, I shadow the Allahu taala does, then share it with us. But notice the etiquette and the other of our shadow, the Allahu taala Sangha, that she does not name the person

00:16:06--> 00:16:17

is that Donna Rajan, she does not name the person, so that it becomes a more general lesson. So everyone understand that, that's very important to understand this. And within this is a lot of etiquette as well.

00:16:19--> 00:17:00

Right? That if someone is, you know, talking to me, or someone is consulting with me, or somebody is, you know, conferring with me in regards to something. And that is something that arouses suspicion within, you know, my family members, or that is something that could prove to be detrimental to my family members, that does not somehow absolve me of my responsibility to my family members, they are my first and foremost responsibility, right? That if I'm welcoming someone into my home, and there could be some problems involved with that, I have to be very cautious in regards to that. I am charged with the responsibility of the protection of my children, and the protection of

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

the people in my household, we have to be very sensible in this regard. We have to be very mature, very sophisticated in this regard. And we see that complexity, that sophistication that the prophets, a lot of them had, he was very nuanced, and were supposed to pick up on these nuances. Secondly, we see them the eyeshadow, the Allahu taala on her that every action of the messengers, Allah December's guidance through and through. So she wants to share that guidance with us because there's a very powerful lesson here, as we're going to talk about this, but how does she balance it out in terms of sharing that guidance, but at the same time, not, you know, committing some type of,

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

you know, not not exposing someone

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

that she basically keeps the scenario anonymous.

00:17:47--> 00:18:08

Now, someone who had the throne and the scholars, because to understand the full benefit and the full scope, the the wisdom of the prophets, a lot of them in what he was doing, and why he did what he did. Many of the scholars like you, Mama, Noah, we have been hijacked, and many others have basically been able to identify exactly who this person was.

00:18:09--> 00:18:28

I'm not going to really mention it. There's no particular benefit, but the reason why the scholars researched it is we'll talk about that in just a second. That there's some profound wisdom of the prophets a lovely time that's here. So moving forward, when this when the proper system notifies, you said that I need you to be careful, this person who's coming is a very problematic is a very troublesome individual.

00:18:29--> 00:18:44

Now, when that person comes the Prophet system is very just general and very gracious, just very, you know, polite, like we say formal. He's very formal with the person. Yes. How are you? How are you doing? Very nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting Samaniego, Monaco Salaam.

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

All right.

00:18:48--> 00:19:25

A lot of times you know the jokingly I kind of refer tell the students it's called like Vicar talk hamdulillah Mashallah. inshallah, Zakir Sonico. Right. All you did was basically do viken, right? You don't want to you don't want to get entangled this person, this person is a sticky individual. You don't want to get entangled. All right. So the prophets a lot of him kept it very general and very vague, and then basically proceeded on forward. Now after he left the Chateau de la Coachella. And however, the student she asked the prophets, a lot of them that informed me of your wisdom, a messenger of God, you tell me that he's a very troublesome person, but when he comes, then you

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

maintain a lot of decorum and formality with the person instead of telling him maybe you know, cracking down on him, Hey, you

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

You're nothing but trouble. Why are you doing this? Right? But you keep it very formal with the person very general and very formal with the person you allow him to go. And that's when the profits a lot. He some shares his profound wisdom. And he said that the worst of the people are the ones whom people avoid altogether or the ones that people basically kind of keep a distance from, keep it very, you know, formal with in order to be able to protect themselves from the issue.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

have that person. Now what does that exactly mean? There's two things here. There's two layers to this that are mentioned by the scholars and that other narrations also elaborates upon.

00:20:11--> 00:20:38

The first one is obviously that if you know somebody is very, very has the proclivity has the tendency to be very problematic to be very argumentative to be very confrontational than maintaining decorum with the person, remaining very formal with the person keeping it very general with the person as to not incite a situation to not provoke the person who is looking for some provocation. You know, sometimes some people are just looking for a fight.

00:20:40--> 00:20:46

And so to not give them any reason not to to not provoke them. That is wisdom, the prophets a lot he was teaching us

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

in that his wisdom.

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

There's no hate in argumentation and confrontation for the sake of confrontation.

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

Secondly, the other wisdom, the prophets, a lot of them also what can be gleaned from this is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:03--> 00:21:16

And the first point excuse me that I mentioned, that is also alluded to, within some other narrations that that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was doing. Now, there are some other narrations as well.

00:21:17--> 00:21:28

The narration of Bahati which talks about this incident, it says the tala toffee, one basata lie that the prophets a lot, he smiled, and the prophets a lot, he said, was just very polite with him.

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

The prophets a lot, he sort of smiled and was very polite with him.

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

All right, and

00:21:36--> 00:22:04

even harder, and some of the scholars explained that part of the reason for that was that while this along with being very problematic, or along with being very troublesome and meddlesome and very confrontational, it just so happened that this person was a very influential person in his tribe. He was very influential amongst his people. And the prophets a lot. He was very interested in being able to bring the message of Islam to the people, to his people.

00:22:06--> 00:22:40

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam understood that if I, you know, because somebody could also suggest, and that was part of what, you know, some of the scholars have mentioned was maybe the the question of shadow, the Allahu taala. And how that if somebody is problematic that we oftentimes talk about this as well, that by the prophets, or someone just welcoming him in and just, you know, being very nice and polite. Yes, hello, thank you. Thank you for visiting Goodbye, right, just being very polite with the person, very formal with the person that might have been misconstrued or misinterpreted by some as being validation. Like the Prophet system is dignifying this person is

00:22:40--> 00:22:47

validating this person is validating everything that person does. And we talked about this in the CSR class as well, that that's an oversimplification.

00:22:49--> 00:23:21

And simple people over simplify stuff, right over simplification shows a lack of intelligence and a lack of thought, a lack of analysis that says, that's a very severe oversimplification. But the prophets a lot he sent me saying that, what he's also saying is that what would have actually made this person even more problematic was if I would have basically shunned that person, because then that would have given him that whole excuse that he was looking forward to begin with. He said, Oh, you don't want to meet with me, hmm.

00:23:23--> 00:23:30

Then he would go back and basically turn it into his life's mission, to not allow his people to listen to the message of Islam.

00:23:32--> 00:23:44

So the prophets, a lot of them understood that there is a greater purpose here, this person is who he is. And hopefully this interaction can maybe kind of crack through the the rough exterior that this person has developed.

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

But also at the same time all of his people and their eemaan is at stake.

00:23:50--> 00:24:02

And it so happened that the profits a lot a seven through this more formal interaction with this person, the profits, a lot of these him was able to gain access to the people and bring them the message of assignment, they were able to accept Islam.

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

So this again, shows that wisdom of the prophets a lot he said,

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

that while they would have been maybe more personally gratifying for the prophets allowed him in the moment.

00:24:13--> 00:24:19

Right, we always see part of the problem, the good character here that's being highlighted of the profits a lot of them

00:24:20--> 00:24:27

is that it can be a little bit more immediately gratifying to be able to just kind of fulfill that urge to kind of be like, you're a bad person.

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

Now go

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

and that feels like a small little victory.

00:24:34--> 00:24:44

But being able to resist that urge to seek out that more immediate gratification for a greater more long term benefit.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

And similarly, another aspect based off of the first interpretation that the prophets a lot of him was just saying that this person is looking for a fight. So let me not give him a reason to be able to fight that that also shows that sometimes good character isn't saying less

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Good character isn't just remaining more quiet.

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

That that's what that's what good character is

00:25:08--> 00:25:14

the next generation, and I wanted to mention one particular thing that some of the scholars they mentioned.

00:25:16--> 00:25:19

And that is that

00:25:21--> 00:25:33

GAVI funding saying any mammal ought to be Rahim Allahu taala. They mentioned this particular aspect of the character of the prophets, a lot of them that they say, but not nearly Salahuddin.

00:25:35--> 00:25:49

It is to make a more short term worldly sacrifice, to be able to achieve the greater eternal good of the deen and of the hereafter. And this is demonstrated here with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

the next generation had the number nine I'll answer the questions afterwards. The Next Generation Hadeeth number nine

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

This is a longer narration

00:26:03--> 00:26:18

so what I'll do here is that all read the narration the Arabic of it, and then all basically or rather what I'll do is I will translate it as I'm reading it shall answer just reading it all the way through. I'll translate it as I go along.

00:26:19--> 00:26:48

Alan moosonee forehead the Santa Sofia Nobunaga. here in Colorado, Santa Jumeirah ignore Omar Ibn Abdul Rahman allegedly colombiana Raja min Benita meme Meanwhile, at the abbey holla zoji Khadija where you cannot about Abdullah and even Leah behala Anil has an imminent allegan Kala pollen Hussein Sal to a B and C Ratan Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Murphy Julissa II, who say no the Allahu taala and who?

00:26:49--> 00:27:16

He says that I asked my father, I live in a beat on him about the character and the behavior, the conduct of the prophets a lot he said them with the people that he was sitting with how the prophets a lot of them would conduct himself with the people that were around him for color Canada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa selama the email bitchery the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was always smiling.

00:27:18--> 00:27:33

sallallahu leuke the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was very easygoing, very easy to get along with leg in a journey be the profits a lot, he said was very soft, and is dealing with people. He's very gentle

00:27:34--> 00:27:46

laser before then well, I believe in that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not harsh in his tone, nor was he harsh in his behavior.

00:27:47--> 00:28:13

That he was not harsh with his words towards the people. And he was similarly valleys basically refers to believe that hard hearted, but how do you tell if someone's heart is hard or not? A lot of times just the body language of the person communicates so he was not harsh in his tone. nor was he harsh or dismissive in his physical mannerisms in his body language towards people. Well as a hobby. He did not use to yell and shout.

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

Well, after hashing, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not obscene and vulgar.

00:28:20--> 00:28:25

Well, I yabin the profits a lot he was not constantly criticizing people.

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

He was not constantly criticizing people

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

while I'm washing

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

now, the word mutia him

00:28:38--> 00:28:48

means that the profit from sure that the profits allowed him was not stingy. He was not miserly. Well, fidi Wyatt in another narration,

00:28:49--> 00:28:54

basically, instead of the word mutia, when it mentions

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

a similar word.

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

What Amazon instead of mutia, in some narrations mentioned the word Mosaic, and what that means is that the prophets a lot, he said, was not excessively just constantly, you know, making a mockery of everything. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not just make a mockery of every situation.

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

Yet vasiliou Amala yesterday,

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

if there was something the prophets allottee some did not prefer, he would just avoid it.

00:29:30--> 00:29:46

What this means is, it's not yet alpha ama Yun kyrou saying that he would just ignore things that were wrong. No, no. Like he he thinks he did not prefer that were permissible, but he maybe wasn't fond of those things.

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

He would just not speak about them, he would just avoid them.

00:29:52--> 00:29:53

Pretend like it wasn't even there.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

And again, this is demonstrated to have a practical example. This is demonstrated in the narration

00:30:00--> 00:30:18

were part of the, you know, the diets of the herbs at that time, particularly more of the bedwin. More of the nomadic was that there are these large lizards in the desert the Bub like these large desert lizards and the Arabs would eat them.

00:30:19--> 00:30:23

And it's actually permissible to perhaps have some permitted eating it.

00:30:24--> 00:30:55

So it was being eaten near to the profit to lobby some one time and the profits of some did not prefer it. And typically, people of Macau were not very fond of it. hollyburn will either the Allahu Jelena was the one eating it, but Hollywood will eat or the Allahu taala no being a military man found him found themselves a lot of times in those types of situation out in the desert. So this was something he had become used to, and even fond of. But the prophets a lot of them the phrase typically they weren't very fond of it, but who Hashem his family, and he himself did not like it either. But it was not prohibited. It was not impermissible.

00:30:56--> 00:31:05

So the profits a lot he said, I'm just pretended like it wasn't even there just went about his business. When they offered it to him to profits. A lot of them said no, I don't prefer it and just went on eating.

00:31:06--> 00:31:19

Now why is that particularly notable? Well, that's notable Why? Because how do we a lot of times behavior, somebody consuming something that we're not particularly fond of? Is?

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

Oh, my God. That's right. A

00:31:25--> 00:31:39

lot of the youngins whose folks might be like immigrants and things like that. Right. Go brain. tongs, intestine, liver, kidney, right. I shot the whole gambit. Right now.

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

Don't say anything. All right. It's a risk it's food from Allah.

00:31:46--> 00:31:54

But imagine now you come and you sit down your mom or your dad or somebody else is sitting there eating something you're like, oh, what are you having? I'm having goat brain.

00:31:56--> 00:31:58

You have a seizure.

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

Right? You flip out

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

you you're you act as if you just like witnessed a murder.

00:32:08--> 00:32:24

Right? yelling and screaming there's tears and right No, just you don't like it. So haraam Be quiet. Right? It's awful. And my yesterday he didn't prefer something. It's mind his own business.

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

And then it goes on it says, When I you Lee Soo min Who? Raji?

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

What are you assuming hurrah, gee.

00:32:37--> 00:32:41

What this refers to is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

he

00:32:44--> 00:33:04

did not disheartened people. And now there's a little bit of a, this is going to be a bit difficult to explain, because it's going to involve some grammatical analysis. So it's going to get a little nerdy here for a second a little technical. So stay with me. Well, I used to, he would not dishearten

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

men who from

00:33:08--> 00:33:11

it, Raji he, someone who liked it.

00:33:13--> 00:33:23

So if somebody was eating something, that the profits a lot from himself, he did not like, and he would just avoid it. But again, see, body language is very important here.

00:33:24--> 00:33:27

Right? That if you're like, Oh, I'm not gonna say anything.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

But then if you start, right,

00:33:32--> 00:33:37

right, start acting funny. You're still basically disrespecting that person.

00:33:38--> 00:33:45

So the Prophet says, I'm physically also would not behave in such a way where I would dishearten the person who did like it.

00:33:49--> 00:34:10

And another translation of this can be done in this way, because it's an issue of pronouns, what does the pronoun go to? Well, are you used to, he would not dis hurt dishearten mean, who the who goes to the profits a lump sum, he would not disheartened from him, somebody who was wanting to be close to the profits a lot, he said.

00:34:12--> 00:34:25

So both ways, that if the prophets of sin would avoid something that he himself did not maybe like or did not prefer, and his body language at the same time would not make the person kind of feel like the prophets, a lot of them somehow was now disapproving of that person.

00:34:26--> 00:34:38

So he would not behave in a way where that person would feel awkward just continuing to eat it. Nor would the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam act in such a way where the person would feel like the process on hates me now.

00:34:40--> 00:34:54

And they would feel embarrassed in front of him. Neither one that was a character of the prophets allottee center. And in fact, there's another narration that mentions that the profits A lot of us have never, ever, ever, ever criticized any type of food.

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

never criticize any food.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Well, are you Hi, yeah, boo fi

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

Well I you hire Buffy

00:35:10--> 00:35:20

which basically means that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while not disheartening the person, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we're also

00:35:24--> 00:35:29

Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would also not

00:35:32--> 00:35:54

the prophets, a lot of them would also not insult the person would not basically derived the person would not, you know, this basically refers you to understand a little bit better. It basically makes reference to maybe being a little indirect or passive aggressive as we call it. He would also not indirectly say anything that would humiliate the person. Well, are you Hi, yeah. bofi.

00:35:56--> 00:36:30

Then it goes on to mention that we're Katara kind of sahoo mentality. There were three things the prophets, a lot of them completely avoided, that he completely gave up. Number one, I didn't meet all he, Alan Mira. Mira basically refers to confrontation argumentation, LG done. Well, that'll be happening, even if he could have won the argument, even when he could have won the argument. Now, again, this is not to be confused with the fact that the prophets a lot of the time will not speak the truth.

00:36:32--> 00:37:13

But this is saying to one of two things. Number one, the only way to speak the truth is not to get into a confrontation and to be argumentative. You can gently politely kindly, graciously state the truth. And secondly, sometimes it's not a matter of the truth and falsehood is not good and bad and evil is just somebody doing things a certain way, or somebody has a particular opinion and it's not necessarily wrong, you maybe have a better opinion on something a better their opinion is okay is acceptable, but you have a better opinion on something that the profits a lot decent will not get into an argument with that person just to be able to win the argument and establish his superiority

00:37:13--> 00:37:36

over that person. In fact, the profits allottee some teaches us in an authentic narration methodical Mira. Mohican, man Allahu Allahu beighton fear about the gender that someone who gives up an argument even though they could win the argument, God will build a palace for them in the innermost sanctum of Paradise in the most central location of paradise.

00:37:37--> 00:38:14

So the prophets A lot of us have never engaged in this type of frivolous argumentation, and meet up. Number two is an Excel Excel examines excessive excessiveness, the profits a lot, he said was not indulged, he did not indulge for the sake of indulgence, he did not just excessively indulge in things. That was not the character of the professor some some other narrations instead of the word ethos. They mentioned the word IQ bar, and bottom means to exert your superiority over people. Look, it's an established fact the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was superior to every human being.

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

Say you do love Alina will fit in Mamma Mia, you will mursaleen hubiera bellami he is, but he never ever exerted that superiority over people never.

00:38:26--> 00:39:00

We see from the way he interacts with people all the narrations that we've seen. Number three, what am I like? And he has we talked about previously that the prophets a lot of them would not indulge, he completely gave up, you know, getting involved in things that did not concern him what tarakan NASA mentality and the profits, a lot of them would advise people to give up three things, which obviously means that he himself did not indulge in these three things either. And the first three things or three things that he gave up, he never, he never engaged in. And he also advised us not to engage in them. The next three things he advises not to engage in them, which obviously means he did

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

not engage in him either. This is just the eloquence of alumina. Vitaly varady, Allahu taala knew that he kind of changes the tone of the conversation so it does not become monotonous. It doesn't just become a long list of things and people stop paying attention. So he switches up the tone. Three things he made people give up gonna lie is

00:39:20--> 00:39:24

that he would not criticize people he would not pick on people.

00:39:25--> 00:39:30

Will I get a boo, he will not. He will not find faults in people.

00:39:31--> 00:39:41

While I get to live with our daughter who and he would not go and dig into people's personal affairs. He would not invade the privacy of people.

00:39:44--> 00:39:53

That is obviously physically but even in terms of just conversations and things like that will add to justice who has the Quran prohibits us not to spy on people.

00:39:55--> 00:39:58

Not will I will add to SSU not to eavesdrop on people.

00:40:02--> 00:40:19

And then it says when I get to kalama illa, FEMA rajyotsava, who the profits a lot he said I'm the only things that he would say were things that he hoped to be rewarded for. Meaning that it goes back to that other narration that we saw as well, that we had talked about fileopen Hydra knowledge as much, that the process of selling would only speak good.

00:40:21--> 00:40:34

He would only speak good things that would have a good end and a good reward to them. And then it talks about how the people around respected the profits a lot, and from this point forward, just to give you a little bit of a

00:40:36--> 00:41:13

a note, to kind of when you read this portion, when we go through this portion, this teaches us two things. Number one, it shows us how much the Sahaba respected the prophets, a lot of him how beloved he was to the companions to the people around him. And number two, it also shows us what the decorum and the respect with the Messenger of Allah allottee some should be needs to be, how is that relevant to us? that while we physically are not sitting with the prophets a lot he said them but we do interact with the words of the prophets a lot he said them the son of the prophets a lot so the Hadith of the prophets a lot he says the Sierra the Shama, he loves the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:41:13--> 00:41:19

sallam and so whenever we interact with the Sunnah, we should similarly conduct ourselves with the utmost respect.

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

The utmost respect.

00:41:23--> 00:41:27

We that second Lama otter aka Julissa, who can ama Allah who see him

00:41:29--> 00:41:36

when the prophets a lot easier would speak all the companions in the messengers. Now, Atlanta Jolla Saku

00:41:37--> 00:41:40

to some extent can refer to lowering of the head.

00:41:41--> 00:41:51

But that does not mean the explanation and some of the other more detailed narrations. They explained this to us that it did, it does not mean that they would just kind of like lower their head and stare at the ground.

00:41:53--> 00:42:03

But they would look at him they would listen to him. But more so lowering of the head is an expression in Arabic, what that means is that they would settle into their spot and they would not move from there.

00:42:06--> 00:42:22

Got a NEMA to see him a plate. How can I get an unkown? him Fini, haiga to sukawati was so cool during the Academy, a suku towards tupuna that they would remain quiet. It was as if there were birds perched on their heads. Imagine if a bird came and just sat on your head.

00:42:24--> 00:42:29

You would move you wouldn't speak no sudden movements, no no sounds

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

otherwise the bird will just fly away.

00:42:34--> 00:42:40

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he spoke the Sahaba would be very still and quiet and listen very attentively.

00:42:42--> 00:42:49

And again, to make this relevant, we of course understand that the Sahaba profoundly respected and adored the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:42:50--> 00:43:02

And they are role models in that regard. But in terms of it being a relevant teaching for us, how do we interact with the mention of the prophets allottee some of the wisdom of the prophets of Salaam, the guidance the sending of the profits a lot.

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

And I talked about how we should be very, very respectful and have etiquette

00:43:09--> 00:43:23

that this is where we find that the great scholars of the past who benefited greatly from the legacy of the prophets a lot he sent them in Mambo Hari Rama Allahu taala he is a he is something we read and benefit from till today.

00:43:24--> 00:43:29

Before every single there are about 6000 plus narrations in his psyche

00:43:31--> 00:43:44

before every single before writing down a single narration for every single narration that he wrote down, he would go he would perform will do he would pray to the gods. He would make do INS colosse pinata except this from them, and then he will write down one narration

00:43:46--> 00:43:55

that was the etiquette they had famous stories about Imam Malik Rahim Allahu taala that Mr. Malik would have like special very formal clothing.

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

Like like putting on a suit imagine,

00:43:59--> 00:44:14

right? He would like put on a suit he would put on very nice, this is very nice. It's very nice garments that he had. And he would put that on and he would apply some scented perfume and make will do and then he would go and he would sit in the mustard.

00:44:16--> 00:44:23

And he would sit in a way he was you would give us in the middle of the profits. A lot of him we would sit where the profits a lot of a sudden his resting place would be to his right.

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

And he would teach

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

for hours you would not lean against anything while doing so.

00:44:31--> 00:44:41

And when he would come to the mention of the profits a lot of semicolon abuse a lot. He said he would with his hand gesture towards a resting place of the profits a lot. And he would say Colorado had to cover

00:44:44--> 00:44:47

that the dignified messenger who rests here he said

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

and that famous story about him family getting bitten by something and not moving.

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

And he was basically breaking into a sweat because of the pain. And when he was done he asked someone to

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Look and check and he found they found that there was something on his back that was biting him.

00:45:05--> 00:45:10

Now why didn't you just get up and move until? He said because I was in the middle of teaching Hadeeth

00:45:12--> 00:45:30

there were teachers that we had that we benefited from that we saw this same respect and character with as well. One particular senior scholar of Caddyshack, Salima Lacan is still alive, may Allah protect them and preserve him. Harvey's Allahu taala. He's well into his 90s

00:45:32--> 00:45:35

he teaches us a Hey, remember Hadi has been teaching it for over 50 years.

00:45:38--> 00:45:49

And he still comes in sits and he teaches for two hours a day and when he sits, he sits in the tashahhud position because they teach sitting on the ground, he sits in the awkward position for two hours and he will not move.

00:45:52--> 00:45:56

He will not move, sit still teaching.

00:45:59--> 00:46:04

This was the the respect they had when interacting with the son of the prophets a lot. He said,

00:46:05--> 00:46:09

following that example of the companions, radi Allahu taala. And

00:46:11--> 00:46:34

so, it says for either socrata tickle demo, they would not speak until he became quiet. So when he finished talking, then they would speak lie yet another owner in the hall had etha and they would not start shouting over each other to start talking, talk over one another. But they would basically defer to one another, being respectful in his presence.

00:46:36--> 00:46:37

And one person would speak at a time

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

Well, mine sakala marinda who unsubtle law who had

00:46:44--> 00:46:48

had diafra howdy to him, and the who had eaten away him.

00:46:50--> 00:47:15

And when one person would speak, the rest would remain quiet until that person was done speaking. And the way that they would speak with in front of him was that they would speak one after another after another, and they would almost kind of like take turns speaking whoever at question they would basically take their turns talking that decorum in that respect. Now going back to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it says yellow hakomi mega Hakuna men who,

00:47:17--> 00:47:20

when they laughed, he would laugh along with them.

00:47:21--> 00:47:43

We the first narration that we saw, if they enjoyed a large, light hearted moments, he would enjoy that light hearted moment with them. We it's our job only Maya Angelou and Aminu and they were when they were enamored or they would be kind of surprised by something he would similarly you know, join into the conversation with them be surprised along with them.

00:47:45--> 00:47:57

We are spirulina, Eb llj, 40 Fremantle tea masala tea. Now the Sahaba had learned disrespecting this decorum around the profits a lot of them by being a part of that community by being in this company.

00:47:59--> 00:48:05

But what would happen when somebody would come in from outside somebody who wasn't from Medina, somebody who was not from the community,

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

that person would know any better.

00:48:09--> 00:48:14

So it says, well, Smith, and he would be very patient with a stranger

00:48:15--> 00:48:24

in terms of their, you know, abrasiveness or in terms of their lack of decorum when they spoke and they asked questions,

00:48:26--> 00:48:59

because somebody from the outside wouldn't know the proper decorum with the profits a lot easier now. And then this specifically makes mentioned the reason why says Jeff, why somebody would be a little bit more abrasive in their speech and their questioning. This particular Lee is making reference to the better ones, because the better one country folk, they were a little bit more kind of, you know, just a little bit more straightforward. They would be a little bit more what seemed like informal with their speech, but particularly with the betterment of the Arabs, they would almost sound a bit harsh.

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

They would sound a bit harsh when they spoke.

00:49:04--> 00:49:09

And there's lots of examples of this as veteran walks into the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yeah, Mohammed.

00:49:11--> 00:49:28

Demand even Salah will be reading about his narration blue mom, even Saliba walks into the machine. The process is Giant Man rides in from out of town, obviously a better one has all the look and feel of it. And he walks into the machine. Yeah, Mohammed and the Sahaba. Like, who is this guy?

00:49:29--> 00:49:54

Yeah, Mohammed. Right. But again, the prophets a lot of someone's been, you know, in one narration and even says the Prophet some response to him, similarly goes non military, what do you want? And the man's like, oh, he understands me. He speaks my language. Right? So he speaks hillbilly, right. So he just use like, okay, and that was the profits a lot. He's

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

trying to make these people comfortable.

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

All right, and there's another narration very kind of serious.

00:50:05--> 00:50:06

That's mentioned by Mr. malbay hoppy

00:50:08--> 00:50:24

narrated by Abu Seidel hoody radi Allahu taala and who they are a man by the name of the one. Do Allah who Acela will have a Surah At Tamimi, Ville Hey, Sarah Tamimi, he came to visit the profits A lot has happened. He walks in says Jada Salalah

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

says on messenger of God, listen.

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

Be fair, okay? Be fair.

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, way hard.

00:50:39--> 00:50:50

You crazy? Because again, right? He's talking to him the way that he says, You crazy way Have you lost your mind? He says, Well, maybe I'll delete them.

00:50:51--> 00:51:02

If I'm not if I won't be fair than who can be fair, if I'm not fair than who's fair. Look at the hip to a certain model. Do you know that if I was not fair, I'd be ruined.

00:51:03--> 00:51:05

I'd be ruined I'd be I'd be destroyed.

00:51:07--> 00:51:12

So again, he's just talking to him the way he talks? Or the Allahu taala? Who says yeah, Rasul Allah.

00:51:13--> 00:51:16

Who on messenger of God allowed me I'd like to murder him.

00:51:19--> 00:51:38

Please grant me permission to murdered this man. Right? Because again, he walks in and points at the property. Yeah, I did. Hey, listen, I'm gonna I'm gonna talk to you, but you gotta be fair. And the proper systems like what do you mean be fair, if I'm not fair than who's fair? And I'm gonna do akutan who's like, why are you indulging him? Let me murder him. Right?

00:51:39--> 00:51:48

And the prophets allottee some says Thou who leave them leave them. Leave him is how they talk. They don't know any better is how they talk.

00:51:50--> 00:51:57

So that was a messenger. So love your spirit, little buddy biologia 40 fee Mata Ki Montes de la te

00:51:58--> 00:52:02

patient with these outsiders in terms of how they spoken how they ask questions.

00:52:04--> 00:52:09

But this is where it gets interesting. hotter in Ghana azabu laya. Studley buena home.

00:52:10--> 00:52:43

But the Sahaba would kind of they were fascinated by these moments. Because after a while, they were just so respectful and cautious and careful, particularly towards the end of the life of the prophets a lot so that they would be very cautious and careful around the process of salon. And they knew these veterans would come in and, you know, they they would get to see a different side of the profits. allottee salon, maybe like yeah, hey, what do you want? Right? And sometimes they would ask, like, really, really kind of silly questions. give you that example, where the veteran comes in, and he says, All messenger of God.

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

Will there be grapes in paradise?

00:52:54--> 00:52:59

And the prophets, a lot of them said, Absolutely, there'll be one grape will be the size of your head.

00:53:00--> 00:53:03

And the prophets and the man says, I shall do and

00:53:04--> 00:53:42

that was it. That's what I've been holding out for giant grapes. Right? And he accepted Islam. So they would get to you know, kind of hear these interactions and they would enjoy it. Obviously, they love the prophets, a lot of them so they wouldn't enjoy it. So someone showed that the companions would actually and they found a better one kind of rode into Medina and they'd be like, are you a better one? And he'd be like, Yeah, why? And he'd be like, Come on, let's go see the profits a lot of a sudden let's go they get some Judo they bring them to the profits a lot at some point you want to ask him some questions asked him some questions right. So that that shows you again just the way

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

the process on once with the people

00:53:44--> 00:53:51

we have Hulu and the prophets a lot of them taught the companions aside from all the other characters that we see of the prophets a lot he said I'm here

00:53:52--> 00:53:57

all the other character we see of the profits a lot so I'm here Look at this, how we summarizes it.

00:53:58--> 00:54:04

We have Hulu the profits a lot a some would say either eaten Bali, Baja Jatin yet Hulu half

00:54:07--> 00:54:10

the profits a lot even Tata Sahaba that whenever you see someone in need,

00:54:12--> 00:54:13

take care of them.

00:54:14--> 00:54:18

Whenever you see someone in need, relieves their need,

00:54:19--> 00:54:24

take care of them, give them what they need, or feed to remove their need.

00:54:25--> 00:54:32

While I Yakubu Santa in Lamin McAfee in the profits a lot he said would not accept praise

00:54:34--> 00:54:35

unless it was deserved.

00:54:37--> 00:54:45

Meaning if the profits are lovely, some gave someone something and the person thanked the promises I'm owed Zack Lochhead. That's very kind of you. That's fine.

00:54:46--> 00:54:49

That's just polite. And he was teaching people to be polite.

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

But if somebody came and just wanted to start,

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

you know, lavishing praise upon the profits, a lot of them excessively the process of did not like that.

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Tell the person stop.

00:55:02--> 00:55:03

It's not good.

00:55:04--> 00:55:20

When I yocto and I had no idea who the profits a lot, he said would not cut people off. He would not interrupt people when they spoke, he would not talk over people had diarrhea juicer, unless and until the person would cross a line.

00:55:22--> 00:55:36

What does that mean? cross a line, if a person started to lie, if a person started to say something disrespectful, if a person started to bless phim, if a person started to backbite, about somebody, then the professor said I would say Stop, please

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

write and it says, For yakutat Oh, Bina in either the process and would stop the person tell them don't do that. Or if the person would not listen or the profits, a lot of them just did not have the relationship with that person to be able to tell them to stop, oh pm in the process and would excuse himself, you would say excuse me, I have to go.

00:55:57--> 00:56:25

And that is why from this. A lot of times we hear that when it comes to backbiting and things like that. That's what the scholars advise that if you you yourself should never back by but if you are somewhere where someone else is engaging in some type of, you know, talking ill if someone Someone is backbiting someone, then in that situation, what is basically recommended is if you have the relationship with the person, where you can basically say, you know what, let's not talk about this.

00:56:26--> 00:56:35

We shouldn't talk about people, then you do so. But if you are not in the position to be able to do so, then excusing yourself is the course of action.

00:56:36--> 00:56:37

Excuse me, I have to go.

00:56:39--> 00:56:43

And that's what we learn from the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:56:48--> 00:57:01

Again, I want to emphasize this narration such a beautiful extensive narration is narrated by Alina Vitaly, but all the Allahu taala and who, laying out the beautiful character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:57:02--> 00:57:04

The next narration had the number 10

00:57:07--> 00:57:25

called Moses suddenly forehead the Santa Mohammed Abu Bashar in Colorado Santa Monica Noma de calidad de tener Sofia and Mohammed dibny Moon cadet palace me to javelina Abdullah radi Allahu Allahu yeppoon masui la Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mushy and kottu for Carla.

00:57:27--> 00:57:39

Jabba bin Abdullah the Allahu taala, who says that the prophets Allah never was never asked for something ever. And he responded by simply saying no.

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

Now

00:57:44--> 00:57:48

two things I'd like to mention about this, it's pretty straightforward into the point but two things I'd like to mention.

00:57:50--> 00:57:51

Number one,

00:57:52--> 00:58:06

is the scenario where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would have something he would have whatever the person was asking for. Again, what doesn't even need to be clarified, obviously is the person is not asking for something impermissible?

00:58:08--> 00:58:29

Because that can even be entertaining. Like the young man who comes to the profits, a lot of German basically is asking for permission to go and commit fornication, to go and commit a sin. And the prophets a lot of them says he explains it to him he he helps the young man understand why that is wrong and that that cannot be done. He talks to the person

00:58:32--> 00:58:54

another time when somebody comes to the prophets, a lot of humans start speaking about vengeance and murdering and killing someone the officer some tells the person No, you cannot do that. So that obviously can't even be entertained. That's obvious, that should not even be a source of, you know, contention or confusion. But if someone's asking for something permissible, someone's asking for some, some some water and the profits, a lot of them has water present.

00:58:56--> 00:59:03

Then the profits, a lot of them would never turn down the person, he'd give it to the person. Well, what if that's the only water of the profits allottee sometimes he would give it to the person.

00:59:05--> 00:59:31

That's why beloved or the Allahu taala and who does famous narration where it says that for an entire month the profits a lot of them survived off of a pouch, a small pouch of dates that beloved the Allahu Jelani used to hide in his clothes, like he would stash inside of his clothes, this pouch of dates, and the reason why he would have to hide it from the sight of the prophet to launch Finally, in the evening when the Protestant would retire for the day.

00:59:32--> 00:59:37

And at that time, you could hear the stomach of the process of grumbling. Due to hunger.

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

You could see that he felt physically weak, that bulahdelah the Allahu talana would take out, take out the pouch, take out a few days, and then serve it to the processor. But the reason why he would stash the pouch, he would hide the pouch, because if the prophet SAW some side he'd be like, give it to someone somebody came, ask him for some food. He'd be like, give it to you. You have some data I saw. I saw you give it to him.

01:00:02--> 01:00:03

Right, that's who the prophets allowed him was.

01:00:05--> 01:00:07

He always put others needs before his own.

01:00:08--> 01:00:17

And there's a beautiful narration where the Sahaba say that it was wintertime and it was a particularly bitter winter, very harsh.

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

And the prophets, a lot of them did not have like a shawl or

01:00:22--> 01:00:24

something to kind of keep them warm.

01:00:26--> 01:00:33

And so they had seen the Prophet, so suddenly even kind of, you know, physically kind of shaking, shivering, feeling the cold.

01:00:35--> 01:00:36

And their situation was similar.

01:00:37--> 01:00:40

There was a tribe that accepted Islam.

01:00:43--> 01:00:47

And the leader of the tribe sent a shawl, a very warm shawl for the prophets allottee center.

01:00:49--> 01:00:52

And the narration says that the shawl was black,

01:00:53--> 01:00:54

kept black.

01:00:56--> 01:00:57

Beautiful.

01:00:58--> 01:01:05

And the appearance of the process on which we studied in the earlier parts of the Shema, in which you can find the recordings for

01:01:06--> 01:01:13

when it describes the appearance of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it mentions about how his hair was, was also jetblack.

01:01:17--> 01:01:23

And so they say that when the prophets, a lot of them took out the shawl, and he wrapped it around himself.

01:01:25--> 01:01:26

They said he was so striking.

01:01:28--> 01:01:35

They say that was the most beautiful thing we had ever seen in our entire lives. He was breathtaking.

01:01:36--> 01:01:37

When he put on that black show,

01:01:38--> 01:01:41

took your breath away. We couldn't stop staring.

01:01:44--> 01:01:47

And we were just sitting there admiring him like wow.

01:01:49--> 01:01:50

Superman, Subhana Allah.

01:01:51--> 01:01:53

God has created something this beautiful in this world.

01:01:56--> 01:02:04

And while he was sitting there, and we were admiring, it has been and we kind of saw that, you know, when you put something warm on and you've been feeling cold, your shoulders just kind of sing Just a little.

01:02:05--> 01:02:09

We kind of saw him relax Just a little. And we felt good as well. 100

01:02:11--> 01:02:15

a man comes, says a messenger of God.

01:02:17--> 01:02:18

I don't have a show.

01:02:19--> 01:02:20

I mean, needing a shawl for some time.

01:02:22--> 01:02:23

The second he said that.

01:02:26--> 01:02:29

Like, we felt like our hearts just sunk.

01:02:31--> 01:02:32

Because we knew what was coming.

01:02:35--> 01:02:40

The profits a lot, he seven took off the shelf, folded it up and said, Here you go. It's for you.

01:02:41--> 01:02:42

And the man took the show.

01:02:45--> 01:02:50

When they were outside the machine when they were kind of leaving, a few people were just kind of looking at him like

01:02:53--> 01:02:55

this guy. This guy?

01:02:56--> 01:03:01

Why would you? Why would you ask him first of all, what do you what did you think he was going to do?

01:03:05--> 01:03:12

And the man kind of felt, you know, a little bad everyone. He felt like everybody was kind of picking on him. And he said, Don't misunderstand me.

01:03:13--> 01:03:17

I understand that but somebody will give the profits a lot to him something.

01:03:18--> 01:03:37

I asked for the shawl because it was he wore it and I touched his body is bless itself. And I requested it, not to just wear it or whatever. I requested it so that I can write in my wasabia that when I die I be shrouded in the shell of the prophets Allah.

01:03:39--> 01:03:47

And the Sahaba say we felt really bad because we found out a few days later that he died and he was in fact, shrouded in the shell of the prophets a lot. He said

01:03:49--> 01:04:01

that was the generosity of the prophets a lot a sinner. That's one. Number two is but what about if the profits along some did not have something, somebody comes in requests water, but he doesn't have water to give them

01:04:03--> 01:04:11

he doesn't have water. There's another narration we're gonna read up ahead, which shows a little different course of action.

01:04:12--> 01:04:15

Where if he just did not have any way to give somebody something

01:04:16--> 01:04:17

you have to say

01:04:18--> 01:04:23

I'm sorry, but the Prophet that's exactly it the prophets Allah some would not say no.

01:04:24--> 01:04:25

He would say I'm sorry.

01:04:27--> 01:04:28

Yeah, 10 zero, LA.

01:04:30--> 01:04:46

The profitsystem would excuse himself. Like in the Quran, it's mentioned in Surah Toba when some of the companions who wanted to join him on the campaign have to book and the book was very far. So everyone needed some transportation and supplies and food and things like that.

01:04:47--> 01:04:59

And there were some pork Sahaba who are physically able who wanted to join him on the campaign, but they did not have the means to be able to go and they came to the prophets a lot of eternity jameelah whom Allah He

01:05:01--> 01:05:29

That they came to the profits a lot. He said them so that he could maybe sponsor them. He maybe had some extra transportation and extra provisions and supplies to provide for them. And the profits, a lot of them did not have any extra supplies to be able to provide for them. So he had to excuse himself What What did he say? He said, la dee doo ma mi la como la de, I do not find extra supplies to be able to provide you with he would explain himself to somebody.

01:05:31--> 01:05:49

Do you understand the scenario, someone is asking him for something. He is the messenger of God. He does not have anything to give. And he's sitting there excusing himself to the person who was asking him for something that he's not obligated to give. To begin with. You see the generosity of the soul and the spirit of the prophets a lot.

01:05:50--> 01:05:51

That's what we're lacking today.

01:05:54--> 01:06:28

The next generation, following masani forehead the center of the leidner Emraan will Qasim Karachi and Maki calahonda sana Ibrahim boo boo sadhana and Ebony she had been under Obaidullah Ambassador the Allahu taala Anima call Ghana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ajuda Nancy bullhide will Canada add you to my akuna fishery Ramadan heptagon Santa Fe t jabril. For Yachty to Allah Hill Khurana for either lucky or who jabril Luca Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam audible Heidi minari Hill masala

01:06:30--> 01:06:41

Abdullah bin Abbas radi Allahu Allah Allah he narrates that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of people when it came to good.

01:06:43--> 01:06:58

And he was at his own most generous during the month of Ramadan, which is like a level that's like unfathomable to us. He was already the most generous human being that ever lived. And then somehow he was even more generous than he normally was during the month of Ramadan.

01:06:59--> 01:07:01

Like a whole nother level.

01:07:02--> 01:07:07

That's that's just income, you know, in comprehensible to us.

01:07:09--> 01:07:22

What can I do? What am I a coup fischeri Ramadan, until the month would conclude until the month would end. And then it goes on to mention that jabril Ali Salam would come to him during the month of Ramadan. And they would be a basically he would recite the Quran

01:07:24--> 01:07:27

that gibreel Ali son would recite it to him and he would recite the Quran to Jabri

01:07:29--> 01:07:46

for either lucky or who jabril and when jabril Ali Salam would be in the company of the prophets a lot he seldom the prophets a lot he said it was even was more generous, in good than even the clouds and the wind that brings the rain.

01:07:48--> 01:08:14

thing about the wind and the clouds that move in before it rains. Like it's a symbol in the Arabic language bubble method. It was like an example of generosity, because then the rain would come through and pour and, you know, nourish the land and nourish the people in the animals and the the earth and the vegetation and so on and so forth. That the prophets a lot of them would be even more generous than even that wind and those clouds that came carrying the rain.

01:08:18--> 01:09:02

And again, this narration it's pretty straightforward. But there's a very beautiful thought either emammal by Judy Rahim, Allahu taala. He mentions his beautiful reflection. He says, Well, he hasn't had easy, palpable exotic Judy fee Ramadan, that this narration teaches us that we should find a way to be even even the most generous person should find a way to be even more generous. During the month of Ramadan. We have to increase our giving. We have to increase our charity. We have to increase our generosity during the month of Ramadan, who Susana ENDA munakata solly hain, particularly when in the company of righteous and pious people. Well, mudaraba Tila Quran and this

01:09:02--> 01:09:16

also teaches us that if you are a student of knowledge studying the deen of Allah is studying the Quran, then you should learn to be generous. That's part of the etiquette of studying the book of Allah is to give charity to be generous, to give sadaqa

01:09:17--> 01:09:18

and we always found

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

that our teachers of the Quran were the most generous of people.

01:09:24--> 01:09:28

They were always the most generous of people they just gave and gave and gave and gave and gave.

01:09:29--> 01:09:39

Because they understood this this this element that this etiquette from the prophets allowed him that if you truly want to benefit from the knowledge of the Quran, you must give you must be generous.

01:09:41--> 01:10:00

And it also mentioned Wolfie and soccabet asahina to a fiddle fee Dini Rajan, that keeping company with the pious in the righteous, encourages you and inspires you to better yourself and your own Deen Hector palu. So much so that the scholars and the pious people

01:10:00--> 01:10:12

of the past, they used to say, liquor in Haiti or Mara to lube. That meeting and sitting with good people is a way to build the heart.

01:10:13--> 01:10:22

A way to build your inner capacity, which is what we've been talking about, is to seek out and to find and to seek out the company of the pious and the righteous

01:10:24--> 01:10:27

and try to be in their company as much as possible.

01:10:28--> 01:10:43

The Next Generation parliamo Sonico had the terracotta tube no sorry, didn't follow us. baranagar furuno Sulayman and savage and Anna Sydney Maliki Nadia Lockwood, Allahu taala, and who call cannon Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, La Jolla de Hiroshi anleihen.

01:10:45--> 01:10:54

And a signal Malik radi Allahu taala. And who narrates and he says that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never store anything for the next day.

01:10:56--> 01:10:58

He would never store anything for the next day.

01:11:00--> 01:11:13

That that was just a character of the profits allottee center. And what that basically means is that two things, obviously, if somebody came to ask for something, he wouldn't kind of be like, Well, I do have something to give, but I might need it.

01:11:15--> 01:11:17

which admittedly could be fair.

01:11:19--> 01:11:34

Could be okay, it's permissible for me to kind of say that, well, I don't need to drink any water right now. But this is all the water that I have, obviously, might need some water in the morning. And so, right, it'd be okay.

01:11:35--> 01:11:39

But the processing didn't do that. And number two, this is the bigger thing.

01:11:40--> 01:11:42

Even if someone did not come to ask

01:11:44--> 01:11:49

the prophets Allah made it his responsibility to know who needed

01:11:50--> 01:11:54

he made it his responsibility to know who was in need.

01:11:56--> 01:11:59

There's that very beautiful narration it gets me every single time

01:12:02--> 01:12:05

where I Boomerang or the Allahu taala and who talks about himself

01:12:06--> 01:12:13

tells a story and he says that I hadn't eaten for days. Everyone in Medina was struggling, but I hadn't eaten for days.

01:12:14--> 01:12:21

And so one day just in the evening after Asia, I just couldn't take it anymore. So I sat there by the door of the machine

01:12:24--> 01:12:26

hoping that somebody on the way out might invite me home.

01:12:28--> 01:12:30

And Abu Bakr radi Allahu Jalan who came?

01:12:31--> 01:12:34

I said Salaam to him. He said, Well, it was Salam and he kept walking.

01:12:35--> 01:12:40

Because he probably didn't have anything at home either. Amara de Allahu Allahu la cama

01:12:42--> 01:12:46

siwalik musala, we kept walking, because he didn't have anything at all either.

01:12:47--> 01:12:52

Until the profits a lot of a sudden was the last one to leave. And he came and he saw me sitting there at the door.

01:12:54--> 01:12:56

And he just stopped and he just smiled at me.

01:12:59--> 01:13:00

He understood.

01:13:02--> 01:13:04

And he asked me said you're hungry, aren't you?

01:13:06--> 01:13:07

I said, Yes, on messenger of God, I'm hungry.

01:13:09--> 01:13:17

And the prophets a lot. He said him said Come home with me and took him home. And he asked his wife, Do we have anything and she said, somebody just sent a bowl of milk.

01:13:18--> 01:13:27

And as the narration goes, he tells abou da da da da da, da da and go get the rest of everybody in the masjid. Those who suffer the people who don't have anything to eat.

01:13:28--> 01:13:35

He says I felt my my heart just sunk in that moment. Because sadly, you will owe me a hero.

01:13:36--> 01:13:41

That is if I bring everyone then he's gonna tell me to serve everyone and the one who serves is the one who eats last.

01:13:43--> 01:13:45

It's a bowl of milk and there's like 70 dudes in the mustard.

01:13:49--> 01:14:04

But it was the miracle of the prophets, Elijah who said Bismillah and he passed the ball and he said pass it around, and everyone drank from it to their fill until they came back around in the bowl was still filling the process told me now it's just the two of us he said drink and I drank from the bowl.

01:14:05--> 01:14:12

And then he said drink some more and I drank some more. He said drink some more and I drink some more and he said drink some more and I said there's no word that the milk can go now.

01:14:17--> 01:14:17

I can't

01:14:19--> 01:14:22

and the bowl was so full and then the profits a lot of them took it and he drank the milk.

01:14:25--> 01:14:32

But that was the profits a lot he sent him he made it his responsibility his job to know who needed

01:14:33--> 01:14:41

and so if he had something left over he would find somebody who needed and he would give to them. But this I will mention one thing.

01:14:42--> 01:14:54

This does not contradict however this was in regards to himself you This is how we would do it for himself. But when it came to his family he was very responsible with his family had these the body says way Absolutely. And he ooda sanity

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

that the prophets a lot he always made sure that there was a year's worth of life.

01:15:00--> 01:15:05

allowance that was set aside for the family because there were there were women and children involved.

01:15:08--> 01:15:10

So he wasn't going to starve them.

01:15:11--> 01:15:15

So it was made sure that the allowance was there for the family, but he himself

01:15:17--> 01:15:23

whatever he was going to eat for that day, he just eat a little bit as much as was needed and gives the rest away share with everyone else.

01:15:27--> 01:15:28

The Next Generation

01:17:14--> 01:17:24

in this narration, honorable Katara the Allahu Chara who narrates that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to give him something.

01:17:26--> 01:17:52

The profits a lot in some sense, I do not have anything at the moment, I am literally empty handed at the moment. But go to the marketplace, get whatever it is that you need to get from, from, you know, someone selling, like if you need some food, go to the to the to the person selling the food, and purchase whatever food is needed, and put it on my tip. basically tell them that I'll pay for it.

01:17:54--> 01:17:54

If

01:17:56--> 01:18:10

and when I do have some money, then I will pay that person back. I'll pay off the debt. Oh my god, Allahu Allahu interjected and he said, O Messenger of God, you have given to this person previously.

01:18:12--> 01:18:13

You've given him before.

01:18:15--> 01:18:21

And God has not obligated you to do that which you do not have the capacity you can give away what you do not have

01:18:22--> 01:18:27

a not lecturing the process of somebody inside of mercy is basically saying all messenger of Allah, why do you?

01:18:29--> 01:18:30

You know, why do you take on such burden?

01:18:32--> 01:18:36

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam very much disliked what Omar said.

01:18:38--> 01:18:47

He didn't like what Omar said. So a man from amongst the unsought who was there, he said, O Messenger of God, spend, give,

01:18:48--> 01:18:50

and do not fear

01:18:51--> 01:18:54

that Allah will leave you in deprivation.

01:18:56--> 01:19:07

Meaning that what we have learned from you or messenger of God is that if we are spending if we are giving charitably, then we give without any fear of poverty,

01:19:08--> 01:19:10

of deprivation.

01:19:11--> 01:19:18

And the prophets, a lot of them smiled, because you realize he's been disguised and paying attention.

01:19:19--> 01:19:33

He's learning the process and smiled, and we could recognize, you could recognize in the face of the Prophet ism, that he was so happy to hear what this man had learned from the profits allottee Center, and then the profits, a lot of them said, This is what I've been commanded to do.

01:19:35--> 01:19:39

This is my job. I have to give even when I don't have anything to give.

01:19:40--> 01:20:00

And basically that's the explanation here. If that basically means is shut off a steady aleja just buy something and just tell them I'll pay them back. But the real the explanation here is that the law No, God forbid, was out lecturing the promises and he just, it was mercy on messenger of Allah, why do you expect

01:20:00--> 01:20:02

Send yourself so much we feel bad

01:20:04--> 01:20:05

you take on everyone's burden

01:20:07--> 01:20:13

but the problem is some didn't like it when Armand said that he said no no you should know better by now. It's my job

01:20:15--> 01:20:18

to carry everyone that's my job

01:20:19--> 01:20:29

and that's why when that Ansari says a messenger of God, Allah will never forsake you. You will keep on giving you when you don't have to give an Allah will still provide for you, even when there seems to be no way.

01:20:31--> 01:20:35

That's when the prophets a lot of them smiled and he got happy because he said, that's what I've been trying to teach you

01:20:37--> 01:20:39

will be happy have that omitted too and this is my job.

01:20:43--> 01:20:47

Let me answer afterwards. Calm was wonderful. The next narration

01:20:50--> 01:21:28

had the finale of no hodgin Palace Barona, or excuse me, before I move on to the next generation, what I wanted to mention was two things that supplement that same idea and Hadith number 13. The eye of the Quran, where Allah says Rama unfucked to MinJae infohio Khalifa who Allahu halal Raja ki, whenever you spend something like in good and charity, Allah will always give it back to you. And Allah subhanaw taala is the best of sustainers and then there's a hadith in Sahih Muslim Bible hooray are the Allahu taala who were the prophets a lot he sent him said, Monica such sadaqa told me Marlin, charity will never decrease a person's wealth.

01:21:29--> 01:21:56

It will never decrease a person's wealth. The next generation had the parliamo 74 hydrosoluble Khalid Sheikh Abdullah Mohammed knocking on a robe a year been similar with him now for the Allahu taala on Houma college, a teacher Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a bit cleaner. I'm in rota baignoire ajilon zarbin for ohtani mill a coffee hooligan whether haben

01:21:58--> 01:21:59

the robot here,

01:22:01--> 01:22:12

radi Allahu taala Anna, she says that I brought to the prophet to launch him I came to the processing with I brought the profits a lot a tray that had some

01:22:14--> 01:22:16

fresh dates, Rota,

01:22:17--> 01:22:20

the fresh dates, not the dried ones, but the fresh ones.

01:22:21--> 01:22:37

I bought the profits a lot, some fresh dates. And also, there were these small pieces of cucumber that were in the tray as well. Because the Prophet says I'm used to like eating those two things together. So I brought him these fresh dates in these cucumbers.

01:22:38--> 01:22:45

She says, and the profits along with him was so grateful. And just to teach us again that etiquette that o'clock

01:22:47--> 01:23:07

that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when I brought this to him, he had recently received some gold. Now the narration doesn't mention whether this gold had come through maybe some spoils of war, or it maybe had been sent to him as a gift, regardless, the profits or some of the gold that he had received. He took that gold and he gave it to me and he said, You brought me this gift, here's a gift for you.

01:23:11--> 01:23:12

She's thinking,

01:23:13--> 01:23:15

I brought him dates and he's giving me gold.

01:23:17--> 01:23:19

the generosity of the profits all of a sudden

01:23:21--> 01:23:22

he didn't keep score.

01:23:25--> 01:23:26

He didn't keep score.

01:23:29--> 01:23:30

And then

01:23:31--> 01:23:50

in the last iteration of this chapter parliamo, suddenly four had the finale Muharram. Well, they do Wahid Lou had done our ASAP new universe, and he shall have no other way to avianna Chateau de la jolla, Anna, and then the BSL Allahu alayhi wa cinema, Ghana Yakubu la dee da w Cebu la Ha.

01:23:52--> 01:24:04

There are shadow the Allahu taala. And he says in this narration that the prophets a lot of them would receive would accept gifts. This is also a part of a clock to be gracious. He would accept gifts

01:24:05--> 01:24:09

when you see what they have, but then he would also give something back and gift as well.

01:24:12--> 01:24:28

That he would receive people's gifts, he would accept them very graciously, no matter how small they were. That's why another narration says lo de la bkr unlockable to the province of some said if somebody brought me the bone of an animal as a gift, I would accept it very graciously. Thank you. Thank you. Hello, Hayden. May Allah bless you.

01:24:29--> 01:24:34

Now smaller humbled to give me a bit he would always receive it and he would give something back.

01:24:35--> 01:24:40

That was the sending of the prophets Allah dish that was the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:24:42--> 01:25:00

There's one little side points. The main lesson here again, it shows the character of the Prophet ism. No matter how small or humble the gift you with graciously accepted, honor the person who gave it to him, but then would also give something back to the person. But a little bit of a side point that I felt was very relevant to be brought up today because there are dynamics and

01:25:00--> 01:25:03

elements in our culture a lot of times that are unhealthy.

01:25:04--> 01:25:08

Imam ghazali actually makes this point in the year.

01:25:10--> 01:25:24

He says that mithali may use the HIA. And he says that there's a problematic element of our culture today, where sometimes we create this social obligation of giving gifts. Whether a person can afford to give the gifts or not.

01:25:26--> 01:25:31

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us like a Hello ma lubri in Muslim in Illa, and claiming

01:25:33--> 01:25:38

that it is only permissible for you to take from someone's wealth, if they willingly give it to you.

01:25:39--> 01:25:50

We have these very problematic elements of our culture today where we create these social obligations and expectations. Where there's like this expectation, this obligation of having to give a gift.

01:25:52--> 01:26:08

And he specifically mentions make them make the moment safaree Well, were you funny apologia? Whoa for a minute. Sometimes when people come back from a journey, they have to distribute gifts. Otherwise, they're afraid that they'll be criticized.

01:26:09--> 01:26:21

Right? All the day. See people are thinking about weddings, right? Somebody gets married, and your cousin's ons neighbor's dog has to get a gold golden necklace. Right?

01:26:23--> 01:26:25

Right. It's a stupid.

01:26:27--> 01:26:28

Right?

01:26:29--> 01:26:39

And it's stupid. And he basically says that filagot yuzu. He says in that scenario, in that situation, if it's one of those situations where you kind of know

01:26:40--> 01:26:57

that you're creating hardship on people through the social, weird customs and rituals, and creating hardship on people, he said, as it is, that is the only scenario where it would actually be admirable, to not accept the gift

01:26:59--> 01:27:11

to not accept it, to take a stand to kind of protest this silly expectation that you put on people where people fall into debt. People go into debt,

01:27:13--> 01:27:17

and tell the person that you mean no offense by this but you try to break up this racket.

01:27:19--> 01:27:20

Trying to put an end to this nonsense.

01:27:22--> 01:27:42

And he says while I'm under law, who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whadya who was he Raja who healed me john acaba, the character of the prophets a lot is from the guidance of the prophets Allah from the life of the prophets Allah from the life style of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is the ultimate measuring stick.

01:27:44--> 01:28:12

That is our ultimate standard photogra Daniella Ashiya from and you for the I'm Rhonda and Elisha, so whenever something is there, always compare it to the character, the lessons the morals, the principles of the Prophet, the life of the prophets a lot. So for my wife, or whoever, if it fits in line with what the prophets a lot taught us, then it's good. Well, my collar for half a Wilma dude and anything that contradicts it,

01:28:13--> 01:28:15

then there's no good in it, reject it.

01:28:17--> 01:28:32

Right. So it's a bit of a more, you know, harsher point. It's a bit more of a technical point. But I just thought that it would be very beneficial to be mentioned here. Because this is something that is really problematic and

01:28:34--> 01:28:39

looks like crazy. They see wedding rituals have been going on for 1000 years because he mamasan he was talking about it.

01:28:41--> 01:28:54

May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all. And may Allah subhanaw taala guide us and give us the ability to practice everything we've said and heard. May Allah subhanho wa Taala adorn us with the o'clock and the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I mean you're a blonde, I mean
