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
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 subhanho wa Taala. 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
Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Well, actually he was actually he edge marine
shala continuing with our study of the Shema and mohammedia, the prophetic personality in sha Allah today we're starting with chapter number 51 which is about the names of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Babu ma geography a smarty rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the chapter about the names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
so starting with the first narration diverse Hadith parliamo suddenly for genocide of Noah Abdullah Rahman Al massumi. Well, they do I hate the Santa Ana Julian Mohammed even intubated him
and a B he call tala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Delhi asthma and Anna Mohammedan wanna do unelma here lithium Lockwood bL cofra. Well, Anil Has she to lead the shadow Nasrallah Academy. What ineluctable living lies about the hoonah began.
In the first narration, debate, minmatar Emirati Allahu taala and who says that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that certainly I have many names, I am Mohammed, I am Ahmed. I am Allah He, the one that Allah subhana wa Taala will eradicate removed disbelief by means of me.
And I am har* which means that I will be the first to be resurrected and all the rest of the people will be resurrected after me. Well another octave and I am Allah octave and let the lace about the hoonah Bian which means that I'm the one to come last. I'm the finality that there will be no profits after me. So to talk about first and foremost the concept here when it talks about the names of the profits a lot Hmm, what does that exactly mean that the profits a lot each term has many names. So the scholars have written about this
allama ut excuse me, Allah ma ba Judy Rahim Allah, Allah says, Al and Father ledi total Aqua Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ah, so an element of was funny that these are different words that are used to identify the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whether they be actual given names, lm refers to a given name, a unique given name of a person, that they are uniquely identified by, oh was fun, or this could also be referring to different attributes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam different descriptions, attributes characteristics, that again, more uniquely identify the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So to remove a little bit of confusion because it
can sound a bit strange
for one person to have multiple given names, legal names like we call them, so it's not so much at the profits a lot of them as multiple given names. It's also including the fact that there are many beautiful descriptions of the profits a lot a salon, that more uniquely identify him. Now, Mr. masucci Rahim Allahu Allah. He has a small article or a booklet, if you will, that he's written.
And it's called al badger. 270. I feel asthma in Abuja, basically complimenting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this is a beautiful compilation in all the prophetic names. And he says that waka dakara bottle comes to me. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has up to 500 different characteristics, identifiers, traits, that more uniquely identify him. and in it he shares a particular principle he says barreda The principle is in an aka throttle asthma eater doula Allah shadowfell masama that a multitude of names and descriptions and attributes and identifiers, actually tells you about the nobility or the prestige of what you're talking about. And
so when we look at this particular principle in action within the sacred,
the things that are sacred to us in our Deen in our religion, starting, of course, first and foremost with Allahu subhanahu, Allah Himself, then of course, there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that talks about that God has 99 names.
And so that's why there's all the attributes, names and attributes of a love whether you like it or not.
Right, all the beautiful names and attributes of a lot tells you about how prestigious and remarkable and magnificent God is Allah is. And then secondly, we have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we're studying about right here. And again, a number of different names and descriptions of the prophets, a lot of them only go to reinforce the idea about how remarkable the prophets a lot, he said, is not only that, but there are some scholars that have also written about the different names of the Quran. The Quran also has many different names and different descriptions.
If you actually go to
the column YouTube channel, there, you'll find I did a series of videos about some of the different names of the book of Allah subhanaw taala, this previous Ramadan, but again, Koran Fuhrer, Khan Kitab, Vicar, mower Eva, Ted Kira, and so so on and so forth. Many many different names. And again, that reinforces that same idea that that tells you about how remarkable the Quran is. Many of the great companions of the prophets, a lot of them similarly Abubakar, acidic
halifa to Rasulullah. Right? ameerul momineen are honorable, Bob Faruk, right, and so on and so forth. And there's many, many different examples. So this again, reinforces that same idea. And this is basically why you Mama tinamou, dealer from Allahu taala has brought this particular chapter to highlights and to emphasize this aspect of the remarkable nature and the personality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So now looking at the very first narration, the prophet SAW lobbyism identifies a few different names. The first one is Mohammed, that is the actual given name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And, of course, we, we learned about in the seat as well that that was a name that was like inspired to the grandfather of the prophets, a lot of the sudden narrations even mentioned to the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And just to understand the word and of course, we did this in class. The word Mohammed comes from hemd comes from hummed, which means to praise and it comes from the particular pattern, which means to repeatedly praise. And so Muhammad is the objective noun, he is some of her own. And what that means is that Muhammad, he is the one who is repeatedly often praised. And there's a very beautiful narration, where in sahadi, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something really remarkable highlight something really amazing about this particular name. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course he was, his name was Muhammad. So when some of the machinery Khoon of
Makkah, would try to criticize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they would try to slander him and talk ill of him. They would refer to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as move them.
They would refer to him as move them, which they were what they were trying to do unsuccessfully was kind of do a play on words, that basically bringing the same pattern linguistically speaking, morphologically speaking, salt flies bring the same pattern, but from the antonym the opposite meaning the bait
of Mohammed to try to say that he is the one who is repeatedly or often criticized will either be law God forbid. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said very beautifully. Elijah Boone at a festival for laguan. Nisha from operation. Well, I know. He says haven't y'all ever noticed how awesome it is? how remarkable it is how Allah subhana wa tada has deflected from me all the cursing and the slander of Quraysh. Yesterday, Mona muda, maman Wei. Wei Yella en una mujer de mamajuana Muhammad. He says they keep on talking about some day keep on talking about some guy named Madame. They curse some guy named with a mom they talk bad about this guy named with a mom, poor mother mom,
because I have no idea who that is. Because my name is Muhammad. Right? And so this was something really beautiful the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Rahim Allahu taala similarly has a poem and it's a sidonia his basically poem his treatise on you know the fundamental beliefs of Muslims, whom yesterday, whom yesterday Muna Madame Anwar Mohammedan, unchecked me in females in in was the Jani Sinan, Ilaha Mohammed an unchecked medium for lovely well, Miranda, Houma sidhwani that basically similarly says the same thing that they curse Madame mom, but Mohammed is completely free and protected from any of their slander. God protected the profits a lot easier, Mohammed from their
slander, in both word in terms of the words and also the meaning, because the last panel will tell that completely deflected that from him because that is not his name. So that's the first name of the prophets a lot. He said Mohammed, the second name that he mentioned here is Ahmed. Now Ahmed is a little bit more interesting because that is practically like a second given name to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, we know that the Quran mentions the name Akhmad for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the prophecy of Isa Jesus Alayhi Salam when he basically says when will Bashir I'm Bill Assouline. Yeah team in body is Muhammad. He says that I am here to tell
you prophesize and give you the good news of the fact that a profit will come after me and his name will be mud. And it is also mentioned in some narrations and accounts of deceit, ah, that this name was also inspired to the mother of the prophets, a lot of them and the fact that the mother of the prophets, a lot of them would actually referred to him kind of lovingly as mud and the name mud basically comes from Lille, it is a comparative noun, but when you when you attribute it to something to Nazi, right, it becomes the superlative noun. And what it basically means is the one who praises the most amongst the people, he is the one who praises God more than anyone else. And
there's a very interesting reference to that in an authentic narration, Asahi narration, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talks about the events of the day of resurrection, the day of judgment, and it says you have to who are the human kiama to be Muhammad Musa, Bihar, Allah, Allah, Who that finally when all of creation will come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they'll go from Prophet to Prophet messenger to messenger, asking them to intercede on behalf of them to ask God to begin the reckoning and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they will finally keep redirecting to someone else. Until finally as Ali Salam will say you have to go talk to
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets a lot he said them, they'll come to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets, a lot of them will go in front of God, He will fall down in frustration, he will bow down for put his face on the ground in front of Allah subhanaw taala. And then the narration says that at that point in time, Allah subhanahu wa taala will basically open upon you for who Allah He, Allah will divinely inspire,
to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam such remarkable and beautiful phrases of preys upon the loss of honor to Allah that no one has ever so beautifully praised God before. And so that also seems to allude to that is also another manifestation of the promises of being mud, he will praise a law on the Day of Resurrection unlike what anyone ever before has been able to do. The third that he mentions here is Alma he. Now this is where it gets into the category of more descriptive names. These are adjectives, characteristics, traits, complimentary traits of the profits a lot. So the first one is that Mahi, which again he explained himself, so it really doesn't require a lot of
elaboration. But who in the Arabic language basically means to remove to wipe to eradicate we have a modern word to erase, right to erase. And so the prophets Allah Islam says that God shall remove and erase disbelief through me by using me
And then the next one that he mentions is a hardship. And again he explains what that means but the word hotshot means to gather the people together. It means to bring people forth to gather people, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, I am a hardship, which means a letter your shadow Nasrallah khademi, that people will be gathered together. And if you literally translated upon my heels, upon my heels, and again, we kind of, we can relate that in English, there's an expression to that effect, which basically means upon someone heals means after them, Allah, I study, that basically everyone else will be resurrected after me. And there are narrations from the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that allude to this at the profits, a lot of these will be the first of humanity to be resurrected. And in fact, there's another. There's another narration which the province of Islam clearly says, a leather yoke shadow Nasrallah, aka being that people will be resurrected after me. The last the fifth one in this particular narration is Allah,
and Allah it basically means the one who comes last the conclusion, all right, because he is the finality and the seal of prophethood.
And that's why basically it comes with the explanation that that there will be no prophets after him. Just a little bit of technical commentary a levy lays about the who many of the scholars mentioned, many of them had they through mentioned had ahmud Raj Minnesota hurry that this is kind of an explanation given by Mr. Missouri and that is not from the original wording of the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam the next generation had his number two.
Color Masonic who had the pharaoh mohammadu Tarifa Goofy, Khalid Abu Bakr is an awesome and Ella and today for the Allahu taala and blue collar Latina BIA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a few badly to Dr. Medina for color and a Mohammedan What do wanna be rajmachi wanna be you Toba t well, another mocha. What animal hardship? When a B you'll move, mala him?
So the translation here is that her they've heard the Allahu taala and who says that I met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the streets of Medina. And the profits all of a sudden said I am Muhammad. I am Ahmed. I am the prophet of mercy. I am the prophet of repentance. I am the one who is followed.
I am the one who will be resurrected. And I am the prophet of battles. The translation in the book is maybe as the most atrocious translation I've ever seen in my entire life. I need everyone to I can't even say the word just to scratch it out. It's just absolutely just
In Allahu la Rajon
do my special sometimes the most remarkable.
Battles. Yes, and I'll explain this further. Okay, so now to explain the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He is saying here again, Mohammed. We talked about this particular name. Achmed. We explained this name. And Nabeel Rama is pretty self explanatory. Prophet of mercy. Rahmatullah alameen wa sallahu wa rahmatullah Allah mean, it's in the Quran that the last part of what Allah tells the prophets a lot is, um, that you were sent as a mercy to all of humanity. Maybe you would Russia. The next one is gonna beat you, Toba? Maybe you Toba and the word Toba. Of course, we translated as repentance. The word Toba basically means to turn around, somebody's going in the
wrong direction and they turn around and get back onto course, get back on track. That is the concept of Toba to turn back to Allah. I am the prophet of Toba. I'm the prophet of repentance, meaning that I emphasize I encourage the people to repent to God and to correct their course and their lives. Well and then well animal Kufa. So this is another new word that we're coming across in this particular narration. And what the word will pacify here means is that I am the followed. I'm not sure once again about this particular translation because the word move cafe, cafe, coffee, or coffee, coffee, basically refers to following someone, not one who, not not one who follows but not
to follow someone, but the one who is actually followed. Right, the one who is actually followed. That's what
refers to. So, there are two ways that this is particularly interpreted. Either it means that because it can be read in both ways if it is mocha fi, I'm the one who follows. But who does the prophets a lot is from follow he doesn't follow. I mean that's sounds strange to say, does the Prophet sallallahu Sallam follow somebody else's guidance? No, it would mean I am the one who follows chronologically speaking, I am the one who followed the others I follow the other prophets chronologically speaking, meaning I am the last of the prophets come cottonwood ambia I am the seal of Providence, but it is read not as McAfee but McAfee. McAfee would be the very, the active noun
will prefer would be the sum of all the passive noun, the objective noun, if it is the passive noun, that it means I'm the one who is followed.
Meaning what people follow my guidance. We talked about this as well. A lot of what Allah says in the Quran call inconjunct. To Hebron, Allah phetchaburi oni that to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is mandated is obligated is commanded upon us by Allah subhanho wa Taala. We all follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even those who don't are supposed to follow him. So this can be read both ways. McAfee means he came after all the profits, he is the seal of profits. And if it's mocha far, which means all of humanity will follow His guidance will follow his path. Alright. The next one is a hash ID, which we already talked about, which means that he will be
the first to be resurrected on the Day of Judgment. And then the last one is where the question kind of arises that is Nebula Malacca. And the word Malacca is the plural of the word Metal Hammer. And that basically refers to two things. It's very interesting. Now this is what I wanted to explain. It refers to two things. The first thing is that the word malham are linguistically speaking, actually means to gather together to gather together into one place. So it can also be referring to the fact that I am the prophet who will gather the people together, who will bring the people together. However, however, the classical Arabs didn't use the word Muhammad to refer to battle because,
again, it gathers the people together into the battlefield, the way the soldiers line up. That's why they refer to it as Malema. All right. mahu, the main issue back in Nancy with the lottery him v Ha. All right, that because the people are lined up and gathered together and eventually the two armies merge together, they become one they merge together. All right, so that's why a bad hole would also be called Mel hammer, which means a gathering. All right, so here it refers to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the prophet of battles. So what does this exactly mean? So there are two ways to understand this. First and foremost, some scholars have actually critiqued the version
of the narration that has this wording in it, that this was something that was added by one of the narrators, because the version of Sahih Muslim is the following ganda Rasulullah sallallahu, Alayhi, wa sallam I, you sent me Lahu you send me Lana nafsa, who is smart, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is narrated by Abu Musab Al Assad, the Allahu taala on the Sahih Muslim that he says that the prophets Allah told us that there were certain names that he was identified by for Paula Ana Mohammed Ahmed well, McAfee or will mocha will hash it, when a bu Toba t when that be your Rama t into Hadith. All right, that the prophets a lot he said them in the hadith of Sahih Muslim
the authentic version of this narration. He says that I am Mohammed Mohammed I am the one who is who comes after all the prophets or who will be followed by all of humanity, like all of humanity will follow me or that I am the and the next name is that I will be the first to be resurrected. I am the prophet of repentance. And I am the prophet of mercy. And that's it it does not mention diversion of al-mulla him battles. All right. However, there are some other dis narration that we're looking at here. Many scholars have critiqued it and some scholars have actually critiqued this version, and the challenge the presence of the word malaccan within it. However, to be completely fair, to be
completely fair, there are a multitude of different versions of this narration that mentioned the word mill hammer, some mentioned the singular version, the Beagle mill hammer, and they are found in the son of ebony Ba Ba, in the book of Dolby in the book of uno I am in the book of Al Hakim in even Imam Ahmed in his Muslim has a version of this, and it's been sad in estaba cards also has a version of this. So some scholars have suggested that because of the multitude of the different versions
It does rise to the lowest level of what we call has been delayed IE it does become an acceptable narration indicates that we take that particular viewpoint that it does become an acceptable narration.
Then the explanation for it is that, and again, you have to understand the expression. He's basically saying that I am the Prophet, to whom God granted the license and the ability to be able to engage in warfare. Because there were many prophets of the past. There were many prophets of the past who were never given the license of what's called Teton. They were never given the license to be able to retaliate against their enemies. Some prophets were simply told, their their their their, their *ty, their law, their legislation was pacifist, that they were not allowed retaliation. And in fact, even if we look at the shediac, Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. For the first 13
years, they were not allowed retaliation. qufu a vehicle, the portion of the Sierra that we've been setting, we talked about this a number of times, they were told, tie your hands, hold your hands, go for a vehicle, you are not allowed to retaliate. They murdered them and tortured them and persecuted them and they were told to come keep your answer yourself. But later on in the Medina and period they were allowed to retaliate. So the profits a lot of these them is basically by saying the Beagle Mullah him and a beagle, Mel Hama, he's saying that I am the prophet who is granted license to be able to go into the battlefield, and to be able to face my enemies and hold them accountable for the
wrongs that they have committed. And in that we have no shame.
In that we have no shame. And we don't feel the need to apologize. Because that is the rights of any sovereign people.
And that is part of dignity. Now in the previous Shara air in the McCain period where Allah had not allowed it, that was a command of God. And that was to be respected. But if we look at it very logically speaking, it is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of or to apologize for. People have the right to defend themselves. And that's exactly what the prophets a lot of them did. And that's what the Sahaba to get on to like Italia, which Marian did. Now if somebody chooses to basically go back and try to, you know, misconstrue and misrepresent the narrative, and the events of history and how they exactly happened and occurred, then that is disingenuous, dishonest and a lack of integrity on
the part of the people. And that a lot of times is a lot of what we call armchair quarterbacking. That's a lot of times people sitting in the comfort of their own homes, sitting on their recliners, and then critiquing about how people should behave in very difficult and trying circumstances. It's lecturing people who are being murdered and brutalized and victimized and, and dragged through the streets, and being oppressed and attacked and violated. And then sitting here and talking to them about you know what the appropriate response should be from my very comfortable reclining chair here. Right? And it absolutely makes no sense. And we don't grant that critique any type of dignity.
And we don't we don't validate that critique by any means at all.
The third narration, and this is just simply another chain of narration that mama Timothy brings, and it seems like your mama Timothy brings this particular narration because of the word Mullah him being challenged. He brings a subsequent narration to kind of emphasize and strengthen that particular wording following will suddenly forehead death and that is happening among children. Clara de Santa Naboo humane, Pollyanna, Hamada, no Santa Marta and awesome and Zeldin and David are the Allahu taala Amina be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Na Na wa who Bhima who haka de Paula Hamada, Salah Mata and awesome Angelina and who they for that is just an added chain of narration.
inshallah, if everyone can turn to the next chapter, chapter number 52.
Why did he say
it's the muddiman period is the medium period. So the brothers asking the question that why exactly the profits? He loves him? Was there some context of why he's mentioning these names? It wasn't muddiman period, especially Abu Salah, Shadi radi Allahu taala, narrating it, they came much much later on. So by that time, the community was very large and very diverse coming from a lot of different backgrounds. And so it was to give those folks those people the appreciation of everything the profits, a lot of them represents to them.
Alright, chapter number 52 Babu ma Jaffe, he Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is the chapter. Excuse me.
This is it.
Chapter about the lifestyle of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now
to emammal by God Rahim Allahu taala. Basically,
kind of explains what that means. He says Bible Bayani ma many a hadith he gave he V marysia de sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, mahalo hayati
that this is a chapter to explain how the prophets alabi some lived his daily life.
Now, one of the things that I wanted to
explain here before we get started, and this is once again, a very technical point, kind of a historical point, and a little bit of, for lack of a better term, kind of a nerdy point here. But when it comes to the study of this text itself, and the different nusach, the different additions, variations of this book, then there are two, there's a different narrative of variation or a different mooska, a different edition of this book, where this is chapter number 52, and the version that we are reading from. However, there are different versions of some of the other students of mama Timothy, that bring this same chapter as chapter number 23. They brought it a lot earlier
within the text within the book. The reason why some of them mentioned there was because they bring it in the midst of the chapters that talk about what the profits a lot of them used to eat, how the profits a lot of them use asleep. So they felt like it fit very appropriately within there, while you're talking about him eating and sleeping. Then you also talk about how his general lifestyle was as well.
Some of the scholars have brought it at this particular point, to illustrate the fact and to demonstrate how because in the last few chapters, we've talked about,
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam how his character was, we recently read a lot about the hulak the clock of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So now the some of the the additions bring it at this particular point, because they feel that after mentioning the character of the prophets, a lot of the time it also makes a lot of sense to understand the context in which that character operated. Right the character, the context in which that character was placed, and that was the general overall lifestyle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Khalid Musa niku had just an echo chamber to moosari didn't call her head de la santisima kidney Harbin
Kala Samia to know a man in vashi radi Allahu Allah and Houma. yaku LS two feet ramen washer Robin mushy la casa de Yocum sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ma, Ma Ma eg domina de Cali Maryam la putana who
and Norma had been bashira, the Allahu taala and Houma he was a younger companion and Medina and on Sati Sahabi, who was a very diligent student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very dedicated student, he has been advocating for the Hadith, he is one of the companions, companions, who has narrated a very large number of Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So he says, and this seems to be that he's saying this, sometime after the profits a lot of the time he's saying, unless Timothy Domine was shut up in Machito, that you find yourselves he kind of in Arabic, the question is in the negative, right, so it's like a rhetorical question, but it makes more sense, maybe translated, that you find yourselves in whatever you find yourselves in a situation where you eat and drink whatever you want. However, however much you want, whenever you want,
however you want, whenever you want, whatever you want, how much you want, like you find yourself in a lot of luxury.
And he say, and he goes on to say that I saw your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he would not even be able to find he would not have enough very simple, ordinary, very low grade dates. He couldn't even find enough low grade dates that could fill his stomach that could satiate fulfill his hunger.
Now, a couple of things to explain here, the first statement of his that rhetorical question that admonition he is admonishing probably students or family members, he's admonishing them. He's reminding them saying, look, you guys live in the lap of luxury.
You guys are living it up. And he says, I remember seeing your profits a lot. He said, No, I didn't see your profit is not his profit. Of course it is. But this is a style. This is a style in the Arabic language that when you want to reprimand someone, you know maybe like an older brother is reprimanding
a younger brother, about respecting their father or maybe about respecting their mother. So he would say a buka
Elisa who Abukar
Elisa to mocha,
is he not your father? Is she not your mother? Now, of course, the one who's saying that it's his mother as well as his father as well. But it's a style to reprimand someone
that you should know better. You know, this is your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he's saying that I saw your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you should know this. And a ductile the word duck Li translated as low grade dates, which basically you see in the translation as well, it says ordinary types of dates. And in the Arabic language as well, it's explained as being that are redeemed in a timer,
or a demon a timer, which basically means the cheapest quality dates, the ones that were very, very simple, very cheap, you know, sold, you know, very
sold for very little money. And the profits a lot somebody says would not even have enough of those low grade, cheap dates that would actually fulfill and satisfy his hunger. That's how your prophet lived. Today y'all are living it up.

Without having the luxury the ability to be able to light the stove, cook some food.
All we had in who or all we had was dates and water.
We survived for an entire month consecutively at a time where all we had to eat was Dayton water data water.
The way the the approach that I'm going to take with this particular chapter insha Allah is that I'm just going to go through the narrations translating them, if there's some, you know, interesting, unique vocabulary, I'll explain it. But I won't be adding a lot of commentary until we get through the entirety of the chapter. Because this chapter is extremely, extremely powerful. And the by the time we're done reading all the different angles of the narrations that Mr. Timothy brings here, it paints a very, very complete picture.
And then I'll just wrap up with maybe just some

anessa de la Allahu taala and who narrates from Abu talha
who has basically his stepfather. He says that we complained to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that we were starving. And we lifted up our shirts to show our stomachs to the profits a lot of stuff that we add stone we each person had a stone tied to their stomach, just to kind of reinforce them. As my mom told me the explains, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam lifted up his shirt to show us that he had two stones tied to his stomach.
Color Borisov where he says the kidney every mama tenemos e mama tenemos. He comments. He says that this Hadith, the Hadees Abu Taha basically only comes through this one particular route. I'll explain that in just a second. And he says what he means by the fact that we lifted our shirts and each person has a stone tied to their stomach, if what he means by that is that what they would do is that they would tie a stone to their stomach because of the hunger and the weakness, that the fatigue and the weakness the difficulty in the
weakness that they would be feeling due to being so severely hungry to be due to the starvation that they were feeling. Now, a quick note about this particular narration once again, there are some commentators of Hadith from the perspective of Senate from the perspective of chain of narration, who have cast certain aspersions upon this particular narration they have reservations about this particular narration. However, the reason why mama Timothy brings this particular narration and he doesn't really have a problem with it is because this narration is reinforced in the meaning what it's saying about a stomach being tied to a stone being tied to the stomach of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam is reinforced within a hadith of Bahati narrated by jabbing radi Allahu taala and who he says that in a normal 100 enough that for the preparation of the Battle of the trench we were digging the trench for that could the attention eaten so a huge boulder was kind of blocking our way try preventing us from digging the trench for Joplin to be as a law the Chicago had a good internal audit they came and they told the profits allows him there's this boulder in the trench and we can't get past it for color and and as in the process I'm said I'm coming I'll deal with it I'll take care of it through the process of God up he came there and the narration mentions
that the profits allottee some kind of removed his shirt to be able to get in there and it says well not well but to know whom I also wouldn't be hijacked in
and there was a stone that was tied to a stomach when a bit nuts a lotta yummy Lana Dooku de la con because we had gone three days without eating any food. So this this this idea about tying tying of the stones to the stomach is actually reinforced through an authentic narration that is found in the Sufi of Imam Bukhari.
Rahim Allahu taala
Hadith number four narration number four, it's kind of a longer narration. The Arabic you'll find on page 25 in the English translations on patient with 24.

Hassan Abdul Maliki mermaid and be selling my tip now. Manga anime hooray Raja radi Allahu taala on who this is narrated by a bahauddin are the Allahu taala and who are translate as I go along. Raja Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a few that I didn't know you heard of via the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came out from his home at an hour of the day in which you normally did not come out. When I yelled coffee I hadn't and, you know, you normally would not see anyone else out in the streets for a tahu Abubakar baba baba karate Allahu taala and ran into the prophets a lot. He said I met the prophets, a lot of them. For Karla my job became about Khadija What are you doing out and
about right now? Oh, my God. He says hello to Alka rasulillah. He's allottee somewhat under roofie wedgie with the stream Allah He I was coming to see you anyways because I wanted to look at you and I wanted to send peace and blessings upon you.
Basically, it's his way of saying I missed you. And I felt like seeing you
for let me yell back and jarama a little while past and then are the Allahu taala who came along and join them
for color magic ibkr aroma. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Omar What are you doing here? Carla Julia Rasul Allah. Shara messenger of God, I am extremely hungry.
I'm extremely hungry.
Kala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on our two brothers Alec and the profits a lot he said um said I feel hungry as well. That's brought me that's what's brought me out at this time of the day.
Fun pelaku illa mentally I will Haytham even Tae Han Allah I'm sorry. So they went to the home of Abu Haytham even Tae Han Alonso de la the Allahu taala anhu he was one of the leaders of the unsought. He was one of those initial people who had come to the season of Hajj and accepted Islam and given the oath of allegiance of the prophets a lot. He said them in the first Oath of Allegiance. What kind of Rajan kathina he was shot he and he was a very blessed individual use a wealthy person. He had a lot of date palm trees, and he had a huge flock and heard of, you know, goats and sheep of animals livestock. Well, let me akula who had the money, but he did not have any
servants should do all of his work by himself.
For me, Judo, they came home and they didn't find him at home.
So the reason why I mentioned that he doesn't have any servants
is number one. That's why he was intelligent.
The second reason because we'll talk the narration will tell us for carlu Liberace, they greeted his wife. And they basically said to his wife in Asahi buki that Where's your husband? for college in Tanaka, Istanbul and Alma. She said that he went out to basically go get some sweet water. And I talked about this. We talked about this in the Seattle class as well. That the a lot of the water that was in Medina, a lot of the water that was in Medina, the wells in Medina mostly had very harsh kind of bitter like mineral for a metallic tasting water.
So it always wasn't always, you know, the best tasting. So she said that he went out a little bit farther to go to one of the places where there's more sweeter water and he's bringing it back from there from Yelp. So they were basically still there waiting very shortly thereafter. And Giada Abu Hasan be bitter about me as Abu Abu Hasan came back with a
you know, jug, like a water sack a jug full of water, and he was carrying it.
For what I heard, he put it down some Jah el tiempo Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He put the jug down and he ran up to the prophets a lot. So many hugged the prophets a lot, even though
the process is at his house.
He's at his house. He was so excited, put the jug down and ran up and hugged the prophet SAW some while you were you fought d b a. b, he welcomed me he and he basically thanked profusely the process of him for coming. And they had a particular expression where they would say I would sacrifice my father and mother. I'd sacrifice anything for you. I'd give anything up for you or messenger of God. You've been here such an honor for me. Someone tala copy him. Ilaha de cachi for basato Lacombe Sultan. He said, Please come with me. And he took them to a particular garden that he owned. And he put down this spread kind of the tablecloth,
through Metallica, Elana Latin for jabya kenwyn ferwerda, who, then he went, he climbed up one of the trees and he broke off, you know, some branches of the day palm tree.
And he brought them down to them.
For Colin Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have forgotten a title and I'm in Ruby. And so basically what what's said here in between the lines is, when he came down with those branches with those different bunches of dates, he had some that were ripe, he had some that were half ripe yet so that were not ripe at all, that were still very, very fresh, because different people have different tastes and used to like the different types of dates. So the prophets a lot
of detail and I'm in otavi Why didn't you just bring us the ripened dates? You should just brought us the ripen dates for collega Rasul Allah in the errata and takaharu. Oh, the human otavi were boosted he, he said, a messenger of God, I wanted you to be able to choose whatever it is that you like, whether you like, right perhaps right dates, whatever, you know, pleases you a messenger of God, whatever you would like, for our Kahlua Sherry moominvalley karma. So they ate the dates and they drank some of that sweet water that he had brought. For Karla sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at this point had that we're living in fcba, the human and their human levitas aluna and who yarmulke Mati vinland body didn't even wanna own body.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I swear to God, these are the very blessings that you'll be asked about on the Day of Resurrection. You're sitting here under this cool shade, enjoying these very beautiful fresh dates. Drinking this very clean, sweet fresh water from Tanaka, Abu Haytham liesa Allahu parmon. Then he said now let me actually prepare some proper dinner some food. Let me cook something for color Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, let us by Hannah data during
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said do not cook an animal do not sacrifice an animal
that can provide milk.
And there's other narrations of the profits a lot. He's not where he said that does but Hulu and Hulu, but the profits allowed him would advise people not to sacrifice an animal that can give milk because that is more beneficial to the family. It provides milk, but rather the profits allottee Some said further. It says further bahala home Annapurna Odeon rather what he did was he abou hate them. He went and he sacrificed either one of the male sheep, right, or goats or more younger animal
for attack on behalf of a kallu and he cooked it and he brought it to them and they basically ate the meal together. For Karla sal Allahu Allah
In the process of his marveling at all of this, he sees everyone hates him going and you know, walking out to some far out well and bringing water back carrying water jugs back. And then he sees him climbing up on a tree and breaking dates off. Then he sees him going and sacrificing an animal and cooking the food. And so the profits a lot of them said halakha Hardiman. Do you have any assistance around here? Do you have any servants anyone who can do some work for you and your workers and the laborers? Do you have any help? For falola? He said, No, I do not for Khalifa either Atlanta Serbian 13 for so he said that the prophets have said the next time we have some slaves or
some servants and basically come and see me and maybe we can provide you with some with some assistance around here. For odnr being of sallallahu alayhi wasallam are being saved in a semi organized palace to servants were presented in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and for utter horrible I hate them I will hate him came to him. Basically saying oh my god, you told me to come and see you for color. The visa logs him externally in Houma. Go ahead and choose some help.
For colleague rasulillah externally the Messenger of Allah you please choose for me for Colin abuse. allottee some internal Mr. Sharma Turman on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who is consulted is in a position of trust. Meaning when someone asks for your advice, when someone asks for your counsel, you are in a position of trust.
You have to be honest with the person you have to be fair with the person. Right You have to put your own biases you have to put your own prejudices aside. All right.
And just a little note before I move on this little phrase in the MR Shara matamanoa, comes in many many different other narrations as well the prophets have said this so many occasions, so many times commandment by Judy Rahim Allahu taala. In hijab, Rahim, Allahu Allah, they some of them basically comment by saying that Canada,
Canada and Canada and yawata terra
cotta has had to endure tatara that this hadith was very close to be rising to the level of mutawatir which means that it, it that's the highest level of integration where it comes through so many multitude of sources, all right, that it overwhelmingly becomes a fact of the religion. So this narration comes so many times and the reason why I mentioned that is not only the benefit of it, but also this was such a fundamental principle of the religion that the process of repeated this multiple times throughout his life, and that is when somebody asks you for advice and counsel then be honest with the person be fair to the person All right.
No, well we'll talk about that. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then said Haha, take this of the to take this person of the two for in Neeraj, a to who you suddenly he said that because I have seen him praying.
He's developed he prays was to see behemoth Bluefin and be sure to be very, very kind and good to him.
Because he's devout, he prays from Tanaka, everyone hates Amina, Emirati. He goes home to his wife for us but our hubby only Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he tells her what the prophet SAW Some said said Look, I brought home this help and the prophets a lot he said and told me that he prays and said I have to we have to be very, very good to him.
for college in Raja Houma and to be Valerie Ma and to be Valley Hopkin, ma. She says to him, she says you will not be able to fulfill the rights of what the processor has told you the profits a lot of them said you have to be very very good to him and you know what the standards of the profits will be tomorrow. So you're not going to be able to live up to that standard.
My collopy in abuse allottee some in lobby Antartica who the only way that you will be able to live up to the advice of the profits a long term is if you free this life. You have the freedom
Karla who Archie when he said okay then he's freed.
He freedom on the spot.
The profits a lot of sandwich between the lines is that the profits a lot of them came to know about this whole situation interaction
for color sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the LA Lamia Boston Albion Walla Halliburton in La Jolla who beat on a tan
that every single prophet and leader that alive are sent. Allah gave them two types of confidence before batana sahoo sin, right it's basically what we call a confidant somebody who is very, very trusted, a very trusted personal advisor.
That every leader
inevitably has one of two types of confidence one of two types of trusted advisors be barnatan taboo bill Murphy with no one no. One type of trusted advisor is someone who gives them good advice and prevents them warns them against falling into bad things.
You know, this phrase enjoying the good forbid the evil encourages that motivates and points out good opportunities and tells them to avoid bad situations will be Donna tune latter, Lu hubzilla. And some folks have the type of trusted advisors who do not care about the ruin and the destruction of that person. And this means two things, either they do not stop the person from destroying others because they're in a leadership position. So they can really wreak havoc on the lives of others. So they do not prevent that person from being the source of destruction in people's lives. And the second meaning of it is that they do not stop the leader him or herself from destroying themselves
by basically becoming drunk with power.
Woman buka batana de su, aka the waqia.
So he's saying that whosoever is able to save themselves from the ill advise the ill advisor, the bad advisor,
then that person has truly been protected.
That that's the key to salvation. That's the path to salvation. Be very careful who you take advice from, and this the prophets a lot. So I'm saying this is basically complimenting the wife of herbal Haytham that are going to hate them is truly a fortunate person, because he has the most amazing advisor in his personal life. And his wife is a very wise very devout very pious person. And Haytham is really really lucky to have her. And overall there's a lesson there in
the reason why mama Timothy brings his particular narration, even though there's tons of benefited as we just saw, but the reason why mama Timothy brings his particular narration in this chapter is basically the beginning of it when it talks about how the system is hungry.
walking around looking for food, or Marathi Allahu taala, who is hungry, shows you the simplicity and how, at times difficult the lifestyle of the profits a lot of them truly was the next generation, calling Masanobu Hadassah, Mohammed Abu Bashar Kala Hadassah, safonov nor a sakala had the phenomenon or a Sabu I'ma about boo na Mattila de Karla, semi auto holiday Mermaid, wushu. asen a Burberry card, or a boo card Karla Bossa Nova de Allahu taala La Raza one bacala intellect Anza.

Very interesting narration or memorable hottub radi Allahu taala and who sent us a hobby. His name was Bob in his one.
And he basically sent him to the farthest reaches of the Muslim territories at that time.
And this was basically bordering the Persian Empire. He sent him out there and basically put him in charge of the boundary, put him in charge of the border towns, basically made him the mayor, the governor, the supervisor, over the border region.
And for us, by Lou, they went all the way there until they reached a point of mid bud
where they basically saw white colored stones, and they were not used to this. So when he saw this, people asked some of the people that were in this group, what is this? What are these white stones? Where are we at and I've seen this before, and so he
He said that this is Basra. This is the region of Basra, this is where we're at.
So, they continued walking on forward until they came upon this small bridge. They came upon this small bridge.
And they stopped there. And they said, this is where we were told to stop. So they settled down over there for that girl had ETB to Lee, which means then they pulled out the instructions of Amaro de la Catalano. And they went through all the instructions on what are the Allahu taala, who had given to them, he told us to do this, this, this, this and this, right that these are responsibilities here. Oh Chiba kind of gave a talk to the troops, the people that he had with him, the team that he had with him to kind of create a little bit of perspective, because it had been a very long arduous journey. They were kind of camped out in the open. So there might have been some folks who were
really fatigued and exhausted and tired, maybe even a bit, you know, you know, agitated. So he decided to kind of create some perspective and give us give us guys a little talk. And he said that
y'all should have seen me when I was one of the seven people accompanying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and we had no food to eat. To the point where we were eventually eating, we were chewing leaves off of trees.
And because of chewing the leaves off the trees that had basically torn, torn up and had scratched up the inside of our mouths, we had these sores that developed inside of our mouths. It was very painful.
And he says that I very surprisingly, found in my luggage, that I had a sheet. And that was like, that was a luxury that I had an extra blankets. Everybody else was just kind of wrapping themselves up in their clothing. They just kind of wrapped themselves up in their clothing, and just try to sleep at night because they were so cold. But he says that I actually found a sheet. I found a blanket. So he says, I basically split up that blanket between myself and one of my travel companions. Sad gonna be what costs for the LA hotel, and we split up that blanket. And he says, But today,
each and every single one of the seven who is on that journey, is appointed as a governor of a region of the Muslim territories today.
That God brought that day. Where did the seven of us who were, you know,
rolled up into balls and shriveling and then you know, whimpering in the cold, shivering in the cold that night, chewing on leaves of trees, even though our mouths and we're getting torn up. And we were getting blisters inside of our mouth sores. But we we went through all of that. But today came the day where we are all governors and supervisors of different regions of the Muslim territories in the Muslim Empire. But then he adds a little bit of a note afterwards he goes was Superleggera de buena Amara bandana, and he goes, we were those people with the profits of seven. Y'all still complain about us? Way too. You see the people that come after us. Wait for that. There'll be lots
of fun. All right, so he kind of left a little zinger in there. All right.
Yesterday, very good. JACK locker. Thank you. So that was heavy number six. If you go back there's Hadid number five. I'll go there now in Sharla.

I'll give you a little bit of background because there's some background to this. You won't make sense otherwise.
BTW a pastor of the Allahu taala, who had been sent as a governor, for the region of Iraq by our honorable Hata radi Allahu talana. He was sent there to basically be the governor, the supervisor, the leader for the people of Iraq.
And he went out there. And there were a lot. There was a lot of just discontent.
There were a lot of malcontents within that community. A lot of problem. A lot of problematic people, troublesome people. And what they did was they started slandering, they started making things in things up about Sargon who cos radi Allahu taala and who and they slandered him, and they actually filed a petition.
They filed the petition to Omar bin Al Khattab radi Allahu taala. We don't like something. We don't want to start telling us what to do.
And obviously, they knew that Amara, the Allahu jalon was a man of principle. So some of these very, very problematic people, troublesome people. And I understand how severe this is gonna sound but they slandered him and they said he doesn't even know how to pray properly.
He doesn't even know the dean properly sagd interview because he's one of the people that that was closest to the prophets a lot. Hmm.
So he said he doesn't know how to pray properly, doesn't know the deen properly.
And they wrote this on Marathi Allahu taala. I knew to quell the situation because it was getting really volatile. amarante Allahu taala, who sent a letter to sad b&w wakasa. And he said, I want you to step down. I want you to step down. I'm not accusing you of any of this. I'm not validating their complaint against you. But it's just right now it's a volatile situation. Wisdom needs to prevail cooler heads need to prevail, I need you to step down, and Amar will be in charge of them.
I might have been the acid
part of the dynamic that some of them mentioned even that actually was answered by Sabina we will cost Southern view of Casa de la husana was known to be just a little bit more of a quieter kind of a more private person.
And even that they basically said he doesn't come out a whole lot and this then salad dinner we will Castro the Allahu taala who disclosed later on that he said I have basically one pair of clothes and so whenever my clothes get dirty, I wash them and then I have to wait until they dry and then I can wear those clothes again. And the profit and the Allahu Jelani said I wish I had a whole army full of silence.
I wish I had a whole room full of sods.
Right That's this is a man of integrity. He's a man of simplicity is the governor of a country or entire region, the state.
And this man has one pair clothing.
But nevertheless, Sandra the Allahu taala, who did have a little bit more of a very straightforward kind of Stern, very quiet, private personality. I'm not being asked about the Allahu taala who wrote the Allahu taala verses that was a little bit more kind of a little bit more friendly, a little bit more outgoing.
And so on. What are the Allahu taala who said that they kind of seems like they, they need a little coddling and Ahmad is just a softer guy. So he said, You stepped down, let it amount to take over, but then under the Allahu taala. And who basically asked Sadler the Allahu taala. And who about what they were saying, inside that are the Allahu taala and who basically said that? Oh, yeah, I mean, what meaning? There's no truth to this whatsoever. He even explained himself. Can you imagine? See, this is the humility of the companions. Sad whenever you walk past was one of the earliest Muslims he actually was Muslim before Ramadan, the Allahu taala. And he was he was Muslim before Amara de la
Catalano. He proceeded to in Islam, but are almost in charge. And so he's saying, Look, I know it's not valid, but this is what they're saying against you. And Sandra the Allahu taala. Who said Who? Who's gonna question me? How dare you question me? Do you know what my record is? Would you like me to show the scars I have on my body defending the profits on some of the battlefield? protecting him? Would you? Would you like to see it?
Right. But Sadler, the Allahu talanoa, in the narration says that he actually explained your armor. He said, Let me explain to you how I would lead to prayer for them. When I would lead a show. I would basically keep the first two records, very moderates. And then the second two records, I would make them shorter than the first two. And the Allahu taala anhu almost like very embarrassed said, that's exactly the process. I'm used to pray you have no need. You don't need to explain yourself to us. We know who you are. I never believed those people to begin with. They're just troublesome people.
They're nothing but trouble. Right. But nevertheless, that was a humility of saga, the Allahu telefonu. But sabbioni will cost this is what he's kind of responding to the accusations against him that he was somehow you know, he was not trusted.
The your god forbid he was not fair etcetera, etcetera. He says that I was the first person to inflict losses upon the enemy in the battlefield in this oma.
I was the first person to shoot an arrow
from this oma in the battlefield.
He says that you should have seen me when I was with the prophet of God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when I was with a group, excuse me, when I was with a group of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
in a campaign in an expedition, and we have nothing to eat, except for leaves off of trees.
And also, what we would do is we would eat like, just before sometimes a flower certain leaves on particular types of trees, before they would blossom and they'd be like, small little, you know, kind of buds, they would be buds before they blossom, we would just take that we would just chew that, just so we'd have something in our stomachs.
Like, that's what we were consuming. That's what we were eating. Someone told that it tore up the inside of our routes, we had blisters and sores, and it was painful. It tore up our mounds.
And he says that it got to the point we were eating leaves.
that this might seem a bit blunt. He's making a point. He's saying that so much so that when we would go to the restroom,
our waste our feces look like goat droppings,
because we're eating goat food. Human beings.
were eating leaves off of trees, what did you expect to happen?
And it says what had been said you can feel the pain in his voice, like in his words. And he said these people but no, I said though that was the name of the people. He said these people have been who I said today. They they correct me and my Dean.
They reprimand me about my practice of the dean.
And he says look at the hip to either one has said to abunda family, he says if I still don't even know how to pray. After having spent 20 plus years with the prophets, a lot of them after having served by his side, after having served the oma been the first to do this, the first to do that eating leaves off of trees, making sure that there would be Islam here today. And I still don't even know how to pray that he says that for him to I have failed either. Then I failed. What has said to I'm a total loser. Well, the family and everything I've done is wrong up to this point.
And you can see how troubled and bothered and hurt he is by this. But again, the reason why this particular narration and Mama Timothy Rahim Allahu taala brings in is because it again talks about eating the leaves off of trees.
Right, again, because of just not having enough to eat. Right.
he's saying that if what they're saying is true, and I spent 20 years of the process and didn't even learn how to pray. There's nobody dumber than I am.
So obviously, you know how to pray. You dummies. Right? That's what he's basically saying. He said, How stupid are you people? You think I would, I would pray with the process and for 20 years and I wouldn't learn how to pray. Right? So but he's being very, he's being very polite. He's saying you do the math. I spent 20 plus years with the professor some and you say I don't know how to pray. Okay. That makes a lot of sense.
Absolutely. Nowhere in the world at all. All right.

We talked about this narration previously that unnecessarily Allahu taala and who says that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I was threatened for the sake of Allah, like no one else. I was hurt, harassed, for the sake of a lot like anyone else. Unlike anyone, and 30 consecutive days and nights passed up for me and believed there was nothing to eat that actually a living creature could eat. Like food. It's like an expression Arabic means there was no food
Except for a little bit that allow us to hide in his clothing, it says that beloved would hide in his armpit. And again, that's kind of an expression to mean kind of like the pocket. He would stash it. And we talked about this, that the reason why he would stash it is if the profits a lot of these men saw it, what would he do? He'd give it away to somebody. And again, we understand why mama tenemos he brings his narration that for an entire month Bilaal in the process of some lived off of a pouch of dates, whole month, two grown men human beings, surviving off of a pouch of dates.

This narration has come earlier in the Shama in in the chapter about what the prophets Allah teach him would actually eat unnecessarily Allahu taala. And who says that the prophets a lot of them? Never in one day, did he have both a lunch and a dinner? He never had two meals in one day that consisted of bread and meat.
Never in one day, did he have two meals, you never had two consecutive meals that consisted of bread and meat. Because we saw earlier, it'd be dates and water
Illa Allah buffer. The only exception to that was when maybe there was some hospitality somebody else had invited him, somebody else had brought some food and brought a bunch of people together, and the meaning of the word buffet because it's a little bit of an interesting word in the Arabic language. It doesn't have one meaning it has a multitude of different meanings. Because there's a very interesting thing the Arabs would do a lot of times that what they would do is they would take three four different words and they would merge them together into one word, almost think of it like as a type of an acronym.
So the BOD would send for the Alfa hosting people, the firewood basically referred to, you know,
you know, times of difficulty not having a lot of food, the other father would refer to basically people kind of bringing things together.
You know, so so the word buffet can mean a lot of different things. But the teacher in Vietnam, Timothy, the teacher, Velma Timothy, who we coach here, Paula Abdullah, Abdul Rahman, as a teacher of your mama Timothy, he says that the scholars have explained to a cutthroat an ad, that meant a lot of people eating together, which basically what would happen is sometimes when nobody had enough food, then everybody would bring together whatever scraps, whatever, a couple of dates, whatever little bit, they could dig up, they could scrounge together and they would bring it all together, put it onto one so far, I'll put it onto one, you know, table together, say Bismillah, and everybody
would eat together and the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala was such that it'd be enough for everyone. That that was the only time the promises I ever ate bread and meat, a little bit of it twice in the same day Otherwise, the process of never enjoyed that luxury in his entire life.

drachman been out for the Allahu taala and who this this
Muslim scholar he's attached via a nofal. Allegedly, he says that
the Allahu jarana was someone who we had the pleasure of enjoying his company, we benefited from his company, we would go and sit with him and benefit from him and learn from him. He was one of the most senior most companions of the prophets a lot. He said one of the people promised paradise in that one gathering. So he said we used to enjoy his company. And he said he was the best company. He was on the best people, most beneficial people you would ever sit with. And he says that one day he came back with us from somewhere from outside and we went into his home. So it must sit maybe he was you know, sweaty or dirty, had been outside for some time. So he was very hospitable. Very polite
He went in and he kind of washed himself off, he bathed, you know and cleaned himself off. And then he came in, he sat with us. And when he came and sat with us someone because of thrombin Oh, it was a very elderly person at this time. He was a Senior Companion of the Prophet system. People used to respect him a tremendous amount. So he says, somebody brought a tray of food. Somebody brought her tray of food, they knew the Allahu taala was all he was having some guests over. So they brought her tray of food. And in that tray of food, there was meat there was bread.
When the tray was put down in front of him, he started to cry.
He started to cry. And we said, Oh, boo, that was his kidney.
Why do you cry? What makes you cry?
And he says the prophets a lot of them left this world.
And neither he nor his family,
either he nor his family
ever got to fill their stomachs with bread made from wheat
or barley. They never got to fill their stomachs with bread made from barley, and bread made from barley, by the way, that's why I got the translation in wheat bread. There's a narration in the Shema that says the prophecies have never even ate wheat bread and his life.
Wheat was finer was considered nicer than barley.
But even barley bread, which was like what they refer to it as an expression on time as peasant food, very simple food.
The simple food of the common folk,
that even that barley bread, they never even had enough to actually satisfy their hunger. They never in his entire lifetime. They never had that. fella Karana. He says that, I feel
that we have been delayed in departing from this world.
And we now find ourselves in luxuries and things that are no good for us.
I feel like we haven't been delayed to experience something good. This is not good.
There's another narration in this
similar, where Abdurrahman been out for the Allahu taala and who
he sits down
and someone brings him some food. And when they bring him some food, then they put it down in front of me, he starts to cry, and say, Why do you cry? And he says that Mousavi nomade who hated mini
masabi nomade was, was a better man than me.
And he died, he gave the ultimate sacrifice and left his world.
Hands up to Abdulmutallab Hamza, the uncle of the process of a halo mini he was a better man than me.
They both were martyred in the Battle of drama and without for seriously injured in the Battle of boyhood, he had such a serious wound on his leg, he limped for the rest of his life. It said that he suffered 30 wounds on his body that he suffered.
So this is not somebody who had made any sacrifices.
His men had made plenty of sacrifice, but he's sitting there, just crying. And he's saying they were better than I am.
And they left this world making the ultimate sacrifice. And here I am enjoying luxury now.
And I feel like all my good deeds are being paid off here in this world.
I don't want that to be the case. And just sat there and cried and cried and cried. And he just told them you guys eat the food, I can't eat this. And actually, towards the end of his life, Dad interaction this evening, this incident, it said towards the end of his life, this became a very regular thing with him.
Anytime, you know, because people used to love him and respect him and look after him.
And every time they would serve him some really nice food, he would just break down into tears, the profits or something never ate this. What am I doing here? Why am I still here? What am I doing?
It was just a different mindset. You know, the obvious question that follows after that is that was it impermissible? Is it wrong? Absolutely not. nobody's talking about permissibility. But it's a different mindset. It's living for a different purpose. It's not it's it's it's eating to live not living to eat.
It's a completely different mindset. There's something there was something more important to them. We all know this.
Right? You talk to somebody who maybe kind of has like, you know, a job, they start off with an entry level job. They're just kind of entering the workforce, you know, young person kind of gets, you know, some type of job just to be able to buy books or pay some bills or whatever. What happens at lunchtime. They've already figured out from before where they're going to have Where are we going for lunch today?
Right, they know exactly where they're going. Big deal. Then you ever seen somebody who really is passionate about their work, think about think about an entrepreneur, a businessman, somebody who runs their own business.
Ever seen somebody like that?
You can come and ask them, Hey, did you have lunch? They'll be like, what's that?
What you don't want to eat, who's got time to eat, I got something more important to do, because they believe in what they're doing.
They believe in what they're doing. They don't have time for this nonsense.
Right? So it's a completely different mindset is very hard for us to grasp a lot of times and then we get into these rationalizations, and then we're trying to get turned it into an argument or a discussion of fit well, is it permissible is not permissible? Is it okay, is it not? Okay, that's completely missing the boat. That's quite literally called missing the point.
Just having a higher calling, having a higher purpose, deciding that you want your life to mean something more.
And in conclusion, I wanted to share just a couple of things. I understand it's been a while but I don't care. So.
Amanda Bharani Rahim. Allahu taala has another Hadith of the prophets Allah He sent them. It says that I knew shabari and you're a Filipino people who eat to their fill people who live luxurious lives in this world and never have ever felt what hunger is in this world. Like they they live like they opulent, indulge indulgent lifestyles. They will be the people who will be starving and hungry in the life of the hereafter May Allah protect us all. In another narration, it says asheboro confit dunya.
Akira, the people who more indulge into food in this world will be that much more hungry in the life of the hereafter. The scholars used to say this so remarkable. Scholars used to say, Joe we oh and fusa commonly walima tell Filipinos
you know when you're going out somewhere really, really nice to eat.
You know, you're in your backyard, you're grilling some steaks.
You won't you don't want to spoil your appetite. Somebody comes out there with some food. Right? They're like, hey, you're like none of them get away from me.
I'm gonna murder to steak, right? It's a thing like you want to enjoy your food. This is a joke. We're only limited for those to enjoy the food in paradise. Save a little room in this world. Please.
Try not to eat yourself to death in this world.
However, as I said that, you know, the point that Judy makes that the criticism the critique here is not of just eating in you know, don't just eating food. But it's that indulgence, where that becomes the objective of your life. That's what you live for. Otherwise, what did Allah say in the Quran? Yeah, you are Yeah, you will Athena hamanako, Lumina.
Kala shabu Allah to serve a God commanded us eat. He just said Don't be excessive. Don't be indulgent.
Right the authentic narration the prophets Allah says Mama, Adama we are in Shoreham in botany. The worst container a human being can fill as their stomach has moved to add the maluka imagine you kinosol boo. That would suffice as a human being is to eat a few small bites that allow you to stand up straight. For in Ghana when our Buddha the prompts are some said if you do have an appetite, you do need to eat a bit more for Jonathan lizama he was only sharabi he was only nafsa he
there are third for food, a third for water and a third just empty.
Well, Carla lottoland hikmah to me, Mali at Parliament, the prophets Allah said, wisdom cannot enter a person who is filled with food. There's no room for the wisdom to go. Woman Kala aku Paula shabu and when you eat less, you'll drink less for her for no more who you will sleep more efficiently.
For the Hara, Baraka to hungry and you'll actually have Baraka and blessing in your life you'll get more done, because you just won't be unconscious 12 hours of a day.
Woman castorama tomuu colletta Guru somebody Mankato Ramadan who somebody who eats excessively, they think very little.
The itis, right wakasa called boo boo boo all jokes aside the hard, the heart becomes hard and the heart no longer remains reflective, because you just moved from eating, to just trying to deal with how much you've eaten, to then passing out to then waking up and then going to the restroom.
Then restarting that cycle.
Right? It's a tragic lifestyle.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that's through the very famous narration this one very just mind blowing. Were faulty Marathi, Allahu taala comes to the prophets a lot of time with some bread.
And he says, What's this? What's the occasion? What's going on? And she says nothing. I just made some bread and I didn't want to eat it by myself. I thought of you. And the process of ate the food and he swore by God that this is the first morsel of food that has entered your father's mouth after three days. Moo telethia Yeah, I hadn't eaten for three days.
Thanks so much for bringing me some food.
I shadow the Allahu taala and about the character of the prophets a lot of stuff. She says that he would never ask like demand, like food.
Whatever they put in front of him is what the prophets allowed him would eat.
Remember, Judy Rahim, Allahu taala says people get distributed into four types. There are people who do not care for worldly indulge indulgences.
And the world doesn't necessarily entertain them either. They don't care about worldly things and worldly things never are given to them. Like I'm not anything like Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allahu taala or no, like Abu Bakr Siddiq hora de la Catalano didn't care for dunya and he gave away all his dunya and he never had a lot of money. Then there's another type. They don't care about the dunya.
But the dunya comes after them offers itself to them like Katara de la Katana when it became Khalifa Oh world fell to the feet of the Muslims. He didn't care for it though, but it fell out his feet. Then there are people who chase after the dunya and they get a lot of dunya and he takes kind of a shot. He talks about the the kings of Romania, the ambassador and the Omega dynasties you came he said they they they they were obsessed with worldly material gain and they had a lot of it too.
And then he says that there are those people who obsess over the world, but they never gain anything material and that becomes a tragic test for them. It can break them a lot of times
are in shadow the Allahu taala on her tells her nephew one time Oh, nephew. Well lucky. You happen to listen son. He was like a center she raised him. He was our nephew. She says listen, son, I swear to God, we the family of Mohammed Salah to him would wait. One month would pass then another month would pass and a third month would pass. And we never had anything to cook in the home of the prophets. allottee Sunnah.
And he says, Yeah, holla
dear aunt, from our candidate
for Makana, Baku, Chico. Like what did you use to eat? How would you survive? She said, Danny, a terminal Wilma, we would drink water and eat some dates. And then she even says Ella Anna who Candela Rasulullah salatu salam ala. Je Rahman Al unser, she said May God bless the unsought we had some neighbors of the unsought and they would sometimes bring us some food, they would sometimes milk their animals and bring some milk for us for the profits allottee so that was the only time to process some got a break from dates and water. When some of the neighbors brought over something may Allah reward them.
She says mashrabiya Allah, Mohammed insalata, Yemen ish bar and Hata comida Rasul allottee some three we never had food three days in a row, there was always if we had food two days in a row, the third day we'd have nothing to eat in the house. That was the whole life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Sahih. Muslim martyr so
why am I shabby I mean, hoatzin was a thin film in washing merata like we talked about, he never got to eat bread, and something with that bread in the same day. And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says yakata now be very careful of being very over indulgent,
becoming over indulgent obsessive for inquiry by the lucky ladies who believe it or not, I mean, the true slaves of God are people that don't indulge in these types of things.
They live for a higher purpose and a higher calling they live to please Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And, of course, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in an authentic narration. In the book of Timothy, Jeremy Timothy, he actually says that
God made me an offer, that he would turn the mountains of Mecca into gold.
He made me an offer, he would turn the mountains of Mecca into gold and I need to pay very close attention here. We sometimes delude ourselves we have this very troubling rhetoric
that somehow the oma will reclaim its glory glory if we just have enough
money and power.
And we'll end up back on top. The profits a lot. Inserm says God made me an offer that he would turn all the mountains of Makkah into gold. All too like
I said, No, my master no
asheboro Yeoman. I prefer to be able to eat one day
and feel satisfied and thank you and praise You
for either a year or two. And the next day when I feel hungry and I don't have anything to eat, never too late.
I will spread my hands in front of you and beg you
I will ask you
whether Shabbir to Chicago to kawamata took one day when I eat. I thank you the next day I'm hungry, I beg you and I asked you the next day I eat I thank you. I prefer to live my life that way, never forgetting about you.
I was just checking to see if I had any other particular points and notes that I wanted to make particularly and
just one second, I'm sorry.
All right, with that inshallah, sorry about just kind of the
end right there. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything I missed. Very, very important, very thought provoking, very challenging topic and issue. But it's for our own spiritual growth in our own benefit. Really, some serious, you know, soul searching needs to be done in this regard. And again, I want to emphasize the point that we're not talking about permissibility or impermissibility. But what we are talking about is really availing the opportunity that we have being you know, achieving the most that we can May Allah subhanaw taala accept from us all. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to practice everything we've said and heard some Hannah lie
behind the Savannah kalami Hambrick Mashallah, in islantilla suffering wanted to be like, very quickly systrace the question
you know, in the, in the Arabic language, a lot of times the prophets a lot, he said, um, we see in a couple of narrations, they would refer to dates and water as a sweat on the two black things. That was just an expression because again, it's called a slew taglib. So because dates are dark, so they would just kind of group things together like amaron would mean moon and sun. So it was just that type of Dorchester style of speech.
