during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Winston Salem one day was extremely hungry. And so he had left his house at a time where normally he would not ever leave, leave the house. And it was a time where most people would be resting. And the assumption is that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam had left after the hurdle in between the hurt and acid where people were resting. And so the prophets of Allah who Allah He was salam started going out, and he was hungry. And on his way, he met Abu Bakr and he asked a book at what brings you here, he says, for hunger. And then they met to Ahmed along the way and Omar also was walking around and looking for
food. So they can't see started walking towards the farm of Apple Haytham a take your hand.
And as they end an apple will eat. Abul Hasan Mahan. He actually was was a wealthy companion of how to sell him owned lots of farms. And he had lots of land as they entered this farm.
They were looking for him but he wasn't there. So his wife said, Oh, he's bringing some water. So she invited them into the orchard. And the prophets, Allah Salam along with a worker and Omar they both sat down and they started resting. A short while later, I will hate them until you hand comes in. And he greets the Prophet SAW Salem and with him is this leather bag of water. And he gives the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam a big hug. And then he proceeds to place a welcoming mat for the process Selim to sit down.
Then he goes to his date palm trees and he brings a large branch filled with date clusters, and he puts it in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Can you bring some fresh data as well? And he said messenger of Allah had intended to bring both in order to give you a choice. So as they were sitting in the shade, drinking the water eating the fresh data
as well as the right dates, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some narrations actually started weeping. And he says, By the one in whose hands is my soul, these are the blessings that Allah will definitely ask us about on the day of judgment. And he said, we'll learn buried. Well Ruth up on YouTube, well not on buried, cool shade, delicious dates, and cold water.
But then sisters, if you look at these three things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, they're very mundane things within within that time period.
And yet, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was trying to teach us the importance of contentment Elkanah.
This characteristic of contentment is becoming so fleeting and nebulous and almost unheard of. Especially when we're living in this capitalistic society where everything is at the click of a button. You don't like something you can get a refund, you can get something else shipped to you within the same day.
And this insect insatiable desire that we have, it doesn't just extend within our online presence, but within our daily households, the way how we have so much food in the house of hon Allah, the way how if we don't want something we can just get something else in return.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he described this nature of humans and that is we are constantly constantly looking for more. The constant Selim tells us that hadith Locanda leave the Adam word you mean that had been leftover worthy and if the son of Adam had a valley filled with gold, he would have wanted another valley filled with cold. Brothers and sisters. The Quran teaches us about the importance of contentment.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Minami la sala Han min Zakarin.
Me known fella nahi Janna who hired by iba whoever does good deeds male or female and is a believer, then we will give him a beautiful life. The scholars of Tafseer they said that this refers to Allah will give you contentment brothers and sisters, one of the most famous dogs that we say in our daily life and we teach our children is that famous Hadith. Oh Allah give us what is the best in this world and give us what is the best in the next life and protect us from the fire? The best in the next life refers to Allah to agenda, forgiveness and Paradise. But what about the best in this life? The scholar said, it refers to contentment, a cornucopia or safiullah.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, ala Shafi lambiel mustering Davina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one time sitting and there was a Bedouin sitting with apostle Salam and the process, Salam began describing the life of paradise, that even in paradise, we as humans, we want more. And he said that there would be a farmer in paradise. And he would say, oh, Allah, give me something to do so that so that I can start planting and raising crops. And Allah says, Aren't you busy with the other blessings that I have given you? And this man will say your Hola, but I would like to do this. So Allah will permit him, give them a piece of land in Paradise, and he will sow the seeds, and then within an hour, the plant would have germinated it would have
grown to his fullest extent. And the plant would be so rife with fruits that he would end up with a mountain of fruits.
Allah subhanaw taala would say to His servant, go ahead, no, take this.
the Bedouin, who is sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Yara Sula, O Messenger of Allah, for sure that man who's been greedy in Paradise is, is either someone from Croatia Mecca, or he's from Medina, because we Bedouins we don't we're not greedy like that.
Even in Jannah, brothers and sisters, we as humans, we want more.
My parting advice is the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he said three things, you will be successful, but a fella who is going to be successful man, Islam, but the Avila Harmon Islam, that person will succeed if they submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala or Ruzicka ki FAFEN and they are given the blessing of being content with what is little while Kunta who? Allah subhanaw taala and Allah makes him pleased with
