And then, we've got to follow
only for visit
carrying on with our two part series on the wisdom of a female worshipers wisdoms from the lives of female worshipers.
And we left off with the life of shawanna.
And I told you a little bit about Taiwan I'm going to repeat some things about Giovanna because she's going to be coming up again
with another person.
So she was this woman that had a beautiful voice. And she was very melodious as well, she would. She would
admonish people she would read for people, a lot of the ascetics a lot of the worshipers, a lot of people who happen to be
people who would be attempting to come close to a loss of one or the other, such people would come and attend her gathering. Along with that, of course, she had much wisdom as well to offer as well. Her name again is shawanna. Now we have a woman by the name of
She actually was a servant for Siobhan.
Okay. With the Avenger ammo, she was among the people that would serve shawanna because again, she was a pious woman, she's known in society and often people of piety, people righteousness, people of, of nobility, people of status and stature within society. Some people obviously look after the needs in some capacity, they take them around, they help them and so on and so forth. So this woman could he or she was a servant, within some capacity for shawanna. And she said,
One day, I was sleeping next to shawanna and shawanna. She
she basically came and she gave me a lunch, okay,
she came and she gave me up a notch.
And she said, stand up, oh, good, the
wine. She said, ladies are harder. They are unknown. This is not the place. This is not the world in which you're going to be in what you're going to be sleeping, there will be enough time to go to sleep once you get to your grave. Because in your brain, you're going to be locked down the whole time. And there'll be enough time for you to sleep. So right now, wake up and do something wake up and pray to a loss of control to either wake up and spend your time wisely. Okay, so the lesson we can take from this is that we need to be moderate within our sleep as well. Okay? Doesn't mean you never go to sleep. Of course you have to go to sleep to rejuvenate your body to recuperate, to get
ready to gain for the worship of a lot of
people so they just get involved in sleep until they forget the world. So you have people that are sometimes sleeping for 14 hours. You hear stories of people sometimes sleeping for two days directly without without a stop, and they forget what they have. They happen to be in such people's depression.
A month will rarely accomplish something important within their lives. Because they're not taking care of their time. And they don't have any value for this time, they don't have a goal for every single day, a person that has a goal, which is a daily goal, a weekly goal, a monthly goal, and he will go, he will make sure that he or she will make sure that every single day of yours is counted. They know what they're doing tomorrow. And they know what they will be doing the day after. And they have a plan for every single day of theirs. For that reason, their sleep will be measured a gauge their time that is they will be measured against as well. And just like that shalonda is teaching
her servant who df that this is not the time for you to consistently and constantly go go to sleep. Rather, you should be considered or what you should be considered up of the fact that there's time to sleep and there's time to also stay on as well. Okay. And she said I, someone asked her, and he said, What are the what are the blessings did you gain from your time serving Chihuahua.
And she replied, that, since the day that I served her, the love for this duty has disappeared in my heart. When we meet people of righteousness, we become affected by their righteousness as well. So since jawanda, was such a woman, a woman of piety and righteousness, naturally people that you would meet to have an impact on their lives as well. So one of the impacts that she left on the life of ODF is that she would say I lost love in my heart for this video.
I've never ever felt afraid about
not coming towards me. And no one from the people of this denier was ever raised in my life. People, sometimes they have different priorities. So those who prioritize the duty out when they see the people of the dunya, they feel like this is what
this is, of course they prioritize it. So they feel impressed by them.
So she says here, that when I saw her and the way she behaved and the nobility that she had, and the way she was cultured, and the way she carried herself, I became in love with the people of the applaud. And I no longer felt impressed by the people of this union, ever, because I had no desire for it. And I never ever disdained there after any one of the Muslims ever. And this is very important because sometimes one of the traps of the shade bond for the people who worship a lot is that some of them may end up gaining some of the people, their fellow Muslims, who are perhaps not as regular in their worship of Allah. So they may look down upon other people who are not doing
perhaps the same amount of at golf, or recital,
or the same amount of salaat, or the same amount of all of these things that she said, that are never ever the same people because she noticed in the light of shawanna that she also never ever disdained people as well. Another such woman is a woman by the name of hustle, CD. And she's Of course, the sister of the famous Mohammed bin CD. Right?
And everybody knows whatever they've been singing for,
for several reasons. So how sodden CD
was a woman also of piety of, of devotion to Allah subhana wa tada and she was a woman who had also karma as well. Okay. Now what does that mean? It means that
it means that there will be paranormal or extra normal matters that occurred in her life by the leave of allies that will jump as an honor for her. Okay. So, extra normal affairs occur at the hands of the prophets, and they're called Lord Jesus miracles and they occur also at the hands of the people at times, not by their choice, but a last choice for them. And these are known as karma as a means for them to be honored. Okay. And as Muslims as Muslims, we believe in the Dharma.
We believe in these extra normal appears occurring at the hands of the brightest people have a loss of kind of more data, okay. Some people they deny the existence of karma
We don't deny the existence of the government, we believe in the garbanzo with ODF. But we have to be keen on ensuring that they've been reported accurately and correctly. That's what we have to ensure. So this woman, and it is reported here that she had a drama and honor from a law
in the form of an extra normal shear, what was that she would light a lantern to pray at night, and she would stand praying. And then sometimes you have a lot of natural wood would shut, okay, but must
allow the house to continue to illuminate unbelievable.
Okay, all the way till the morning time, so that she can carry on with her worship.
In some of these garments are such an important thing even reported that sometimes they may even be similar to that of the other profits as well. Okay? Sometimes they may be similar to that of the profits as well. But again, they don't denote profit, because profit is in the following way. Something that is extra normal occurs at the hand of a prophet. And he makes the team that I'm a prophet. So that extra level of fear verifies for the people that this person is, in fact, a prophet. So it's a sign from a loss of kind of data to show the people that the team that is making to Prophethood is in fact a true thing, right.
However, some people do make a false claim to Prophethood. So a lot of they give them an extramarital affair, but opposite to what they are proclaiming how so. So some of the false prophets during the time of the Prophet Mohammed, some A lot of it was said that there were some false prophets, because what the prophet made a change the Prophet what other people thought that this is a way to gain leadership within society. So those who are seeking leadership, they also started to profit.
So one of them, who made such a claim, he said,
he wish to prove to people that he is in fact, a prophet. So he said, I'm going to, I'm going to,
I'm going to cure the hear of a person. Okay? So when he wiped his hand, and on top of the, the person who was half bald, to hear even the rest of the year,
because he was trying to gain a comma, or a word, or something of that sort, but
a form of humiliation because he came by wiping his hand on top of someone's head, the hair will retreat, right. So it actually became worse as well. And that is, of course, that
another woman is a woman by the name of Lu Baba. And
she used to say that I am shy of a loss of a dog. I'm so shy of a loss of data, that, I feel that once he's watching me, because of my shyness of a lot, I don't want to be caught doing anything. Except that which serves a loss of kind of what
I don't want to be seen by the loss of internal data except within the service of law.
And what we've learned from this is that
we have to be considerate of the fact that a lot of ways that your data is constantly inconsistently watching us, okay? Every single move that you make within your life, a lot is there watching you. So if you keep that in mind, the way with which you behave, and the things that you do, and the choices that you make will be very different than the way they are right now. Because in your mind will be this idea that a lot is they're looking down at you every single moment. So every choice you will make and naturally will be different. I'll give you a wonderful example of this within your life that you can relate to perhaps, if you go to work, and at your work there is your direct manager is
looking at you and he's there. He's watching and observing you. Okay, what do you know that your direct manager happens to be observing you the type of things that you will do and will not do will be a lot different than what you have the ease of in being away? Right? So when you realize that Allah is consistently watching you and overseeing all of you
Your affairs and observing you that actually, every single thing you do, and the way you do it will be much different isn't that so? So this is what this woman Nova is telling us.
another woman is a woman by the name of her beta, or beta bins, Abby Kira,
and she was also from the people of massage. And she was a very, very intelligent woman. And she was very keen also on the worship of Allah.
In addition to that, she was a very good ad manager as well.
So and she used to say,
whoever has good muscle turnover,
whoever has good and good knowledge of a lot, two things, he knows who our data is, and he also has good internal data, there will be nothing more than luck to him, then going to meet a loss of data and arriving at a loss.
Arriving at the meeting with lots of panel data, either here often, what does this mean? She's saying, if you have one, and if you have,
if you have the consciousness of a loss of data, and you also have knowledge of a loss of data, then there'll be nothing more beloved to you than needing a lot. Okay? Why Why so?
Well, when you have knowledge, is, you know that a lot is
you know that a lot.
You know that a lot,
you know, all of these games have a loss of data, that bring you closer to him, you know, that a lot is allowed. And even if you've made mistakes, you know, a lot is just, you know, all of these things simultaneously, you know, that a loss of data is quick to, to bring people to account is very severe in his account as well. But because of the fact that you know, these names, you have tried your best to establish the consciousness of a lot of diligent within your life, then naturally, you'll be keen to do more, because you know, that you've avoided all of the things that necessitate punishment, and you've done all of the things that will likely lead to a good end and law is the most just in the
most kind of most benevolent and the Most Merciful and the most compassionate and so forth. So, because of that, there will be nothing more beloved to you than meeting a month, in this life, everything that looks like something of luxury, you know, the luxury that a lot of will provide will be greater, everything that looks like is comfort, you know, the comfort that alone is in store for you will be greater, everything that looks like he is you know, that he that alone will will always be greater. So because of that, you will wish to meet a lot of them. Whereas if
I ask Allah subhana wa tada to apprentice, his consciousness, such that we feel prepared to meet him for long enough. I mean,
another woman is a woman by the name of Ben.
And she used to say that whenever you see,
whenever you see the blessings, they are pouring down upon you, so that you have the sugar that immediately be grateful for those blessings. Why? Because soon after the blessings leave soon after, if you are not grateful to Ally's origin, then perhaps these blessings may also lead as well. You know, they have a secret and they say that
there's a there's a wait to lock, the nierman. Okay.
Many times when we were when we were granted with a lot of blessings from a lot of diligent, immediately modern things, what is what they are used all of these things right? To the advantage granted a good job, a good car, I've been renting a good house, I've been renting all of the blessings of life. What if tomorrow, I think I lose all of these things. So there is a there's a way for you to ensure that you don't lose it and you lost that blessing in such that it doesn't leave. And that is that is why
and there's also by the way, a way for you to let it go such that it doesn't remain with you. And it leaves
at the party, that whatever you are ungrateful of any of the blessings of a larger agenda, than that will bring the blessing to an ending and when you are grateful
last lesson, then that will, that was a lot, and that will change. And that will preserve the lessons for you, and it will have a knock that you're trying to do it so that it doesn't leave, you are asked
to continue to pour his blessings upon us along the way.
Another woman, a woman by the name of
her name is
she was the wife of a man by the name of
Now, truly a very, very
rich woman, okay. So this was a busted band, in that way that he got married to a very wealthy woman. So he didn't have to work all of his life. Rather, I was making a joke yesterday, or maybe this morning about
the man in the family for whom everybody leeches, but in this case, it's the other way around. Fabiana was very wealthy. So her husband was the one teaching for her, okay. And he was the one benefiting from her boss.
but she was also a pious woman. And
one of the doors that she had in her locker is that Oh, ally, you've given me so much well, so
give me someone pious in my life. So I respect
Okay, bring me someone back who is righteous. So he can do his things that he can do whatever he wants, from loss of data, and I will use my wealth that I have to spend on him, and so on, there are she said to
me, Hawaii, her husband, basically, and her husband and her friends, by the way, all of them used to benefit from her mouth. So she said, I used to make dua to Allah Subhana, WA, tada, that a person like yourself, and like your friends, they benefit from my wealth, and I spent all this money on on them. So she ended up ended up doing that. And the benefit that we can gain from this is that if you have wealth, then you should be generous to be able to spend it upon people, especially people of righteousness, and people of goodwill. Because when you do that, it will only help them continue and only encourage good within within society as well, right.
And if you don't do that, as
a free comic book, he said
that whoever happens to be a person of money and a person of grace, a person of wealth, and he's very, very stingy with the wealth he has, then what's going to happen is people will leave him and people will find sufficiency elsewhere. And that person will always be blameworthy that he had funny, but he didn't share. Okay.
And this is true. Sometimes within the family, you have a person who has a lot of goodness, a lot of pain, a lot of both. And there are people within the boundary who are poor. And they need those they need. And she knows they need bars. And they have so much money, that's enough for them and their families and two lifetimes maybe. But they're not willing to share because this is how some people have been doing. So in the backdrop in the back burner consistently and constantly, such people are being blamed by people in society that look, he has so much, or she has so much that if he only shared it would make our lives easier, but it wouldn't hurt him in the least because a lot is
directed and so much. So if you have been granted goodness, if you have been granted wealth, that, that make it a priority to look out for the needs, especially of those people who happen to be around you, right? There's this phenomenon as well, that people sometimes have both, and they think about donating and they think about spending on all of the people except those who happen to be the closest to them. Right? Sometimes the closest to you, your brother, your sister, your uncle, your auntie, your cousin, those are people who are in sometimes serious, deep, but we end up maybe going to an event and donating $10,000 but we get cheered a few 100 over here to help someone pay their
bills. Right? Those are more worthy of your wealth. And this woman she said I wish I had someone in my life, meaning or husband or someone very close upon whom I could spend this money. Another woman is a woman by the name of Lima and thinks Abuja
this one is
one of her students.
was a man by the name of goop road and she died in the year 202 123. Okay, after the injury of the province of Obama, so she's a very earthy person.
And she has a student by the name of the node and
the node and most recently was known as the shape of the people of Egypt. Okay?
He was like,
he was like, the main scholar of the people of Egypt, now wants to travel data, must the people of Egypt
You see, the prophets have
actually given us a, a will, before he passed away to be kind to the people of Egypt, I don't know if many people are aware of this.
You have given us a recommendation, a guide guidance or guidelines, specifically to the people of Egypt. So
this man was among the great scholars of the people of Egypt. And
he was not only a great scholar, but he was a student of many great scholars, I'm getting to something over here. He was a student.
He was a student of
he was a student of some of the prominent Calgary, this man happens to be a student. One day someone asked this man,
he said that, who is the greatest person you've ever seen in your life? Who is the single greatest person you've ever seen in your life.
And remember, he said about body image is one of the more
are much more greater Do you want to get he has laid it out? For those of you who don't know,
if you just type in my name on YouTube, and you type in
our long biography of old lady,
so you can visit to the life of the lady. He's also a great earning scholar.
I asked him to leave things alone. So he's met all these people. And he said, I have never in my life that anyone greater than a woman by the impactor by the name of polymath,
okay, are all of the scholars in the back
who happen to be the most prominent scholars of this, and are all of the righteous people that he had met, some of whom were from the early generations, the most righteous people ever.
He said, I had never ever met anyone more greater in my eyes than a woman
who was known as Fatima.
And look at that concept that he refers to. And he said, she used to speak about the meanings of the art in a way that was amazing. Okay, meaning she would do the scene of the art. And it would be such amazing to see that
it is short and easy
And then somebody else would do.
And she used to say that one day, she actually
was a great nonstick himself. And she said that he he asked her give me advice.
And they were in Beijing office at this time, they have lots of data three, they did not miss a lot.
she said to him, she advised him she said, stick to honesty in all of your fears.
And be honest, if your actions and also your words as well, why so? And she said that the reason for this is for either
She said that a loss of Hannah Medina says things become very difficult. On either deal judgment arises, when that occurs, they will begin to feel that if only they were honest, it would have been better for them. Right.
So basically, she's saying honesty is the best policy you have to always be all of your fears, stick to honesty. You see, honesty is very important with all of your affairs, but your brothers or your sisters, if you're not dealing with an honest person, and if you're someone who happens to be a dishonest person, that you can't have a conversation with them. You can't do business dealings with them. You can't feel comfortable in marriage with them. You can't feel comfortable in life with them. You can't live with them. This honesty
ends up destroying everything. It destroys relationships, it severs businesses, it brings things down and brings people down. It's a very dangerous state to be in. Even if you're wrong, just be honest about your, you're wrong. And that's better for you than for you to lie, because lying would bring about another wrong at the same time. I know at times, be honest, requires a little bit of courage, but that courage is required. You have to, you have to ensure that you have that level of discipline and courage to be able to just face the reality if you've done something wrong, be honest about it. And that honesty will eventually lead to righteousness as well as the Prophet.
indeed, honesty will run will allow you to do this because you will feel shy every single time you're wrong, you honestly say you know what I was wrong. Eventually, as a human being naturally you will feel maybe I should stop being right. So I don't have to always say this. But if you cover it up with a lie every single time, you will never have to face the the problems that you're placing yourself into. But if you're honest, that one day or another, it'll come to you, it will occur to you that let's leave these problems because of which I have to tell truths, which are better. Let me just do things right, so that every truth that I tell is a good truth. Right? So the Prophet Joseph,
and righteousness, it was brought to you by truth, leading you also to gender as well. And that's why she guided him to the truth in all of his affairs, including what he says, and including what he does as well.
To get rid of dishonesty.
You see, my dear brothers, there was a woman also by the name of
Ashley, that was her title, she was known as
one of the advances that this woman by the name of Maria had given his an advice related to desires,
she said, is the heart and soul desires,
Then, and only then will the heart feel connected to knowledge. And also connected to following that knowledge, right?
You see, knowledge, at times will guide you to things which go against your desires. And if your heart is full of desires, then obviously you will feel averse to information. Okay? information that is telling you to go against your desires, you won't feel interested in hearing it, you will actually feel reverse bias. So in order for you to feel encouraged, in order for you to feel enticed by information, then you have to disconnect yourself from desires. Okay, so that's why she said that when the heart leaves, desires, that's when it starts to love knowledge, because knowledge will lead you to things, knowledge will guide you to things that perhaps your desires, recall.
And perhaps you feel averse to because of your desires. Once you delete the desires as much as possible, then you will feel more interested in information. And when you do, then you will feel more interested in following that information as well. So when you come to the art, you have to come in a state in which in which we attempt to overcome your internal desires. So you don't take your desires and make them overcome the meanings of the product. And make them supersede the meanings of the product. And assuming of course, rather, you delete your desires and allow the meanings within the product to overcome and supersede you such that they bring you full circle.
And tools are also good options as well. I asked them
to write this good knowledge and also the ability to opt for that knowledge along
there was another woman
by the name of
And for those of you who were here yesterday, you remember I spoke about
so this woman, she was among the friends of mine.
she used to say that she had a shoot.
Of course she was also a servant of God as well as she would help her out in her day to day matters and affairs. And she has a very, very beautiful statement
in which she would say three things, okay. If there's not much that you've learned
Insha Allah in these lessons, I want you to remember this one, it's a very powerful thing, it will help you
correct a lot of your fears. And they'll help us all.
She would say that in order for,
in order for
for any action to be accepted, you have to have three things, we can summarize them into two, but I'll say that
the first thing is that you have to be sincere within that action.
Every single action that you do, you need to ensure that you're sincerely doing it.
You have to ensure that that action is
safe, and not for the sake of anyone else.
And the second thing that she said, is that you have to also ensure that that action is in fact, a correct action. Because you can be sincere all you want, but the action is wrong, right?
Maybe you have some security, you're sincerely doing something, but you're doing it all wrong. I'll give you a simple example. Perhaps you are very sincere and, and devoted money when it comes to your prayer. So you're praying on a daily basis, and you're doing it. But the reality is, you don't know actually how to pray, you don't know that you have to resort in fact, your happiness alone, without which there is no
there is no grace period, except if you read.
So there's a problem there. You don't know that.
When you're praying yourself, all you have to ensure that has been protected as well and has been completed in at least the obligatory options within your loop have been completed and done, right. So without this, without the correctness, as well as the accuracy of your action, your action will not be considered acceptable. So she said, the first thing is, you have to have class. The second thing is you have to have a bar. And the third thing is, you have to ensure that that action also is in accordance to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.
So what did she say? And what's her name? I want you to memorize this when you actually remember as a practical way of advice.
I just wanna make you aware of one emergency situation in the back there, there is a mortgage on the whole building washed over washrooms and own line of water. Because there is something wrong with the city line. It's not our problem. I knew it's our kids who are putting
the napkins after using the washrooms they are putting it on, they are not flushing it into the
washrooms anyway. The people are here in the back area, and I want you to keep the kids especially ages away from that area
will not move forward until they fix the problem. So
I want to
keep the kids away from that area, because it's very important.
Okay, so we were saying that there are three things that
I want you to memorize them the first thing is that
everybody say it out loud. Remember, it
is lost. So sincerity of
Okay, so this is a practical tip within your life. And I'm going to leave you off with one last thing that we prepared
a woman by the name of
she was among the people who were young children when
I was around about who we spoke at spoke yesterday.
She was not only among the children at the time of Florida, but she was actually a child, the father herself a nurse as well, as well. So she was she was basically a doctor too, because of the fact that nurses
A mother to the child, right.
she would say,
she would say to you that do not, do not,
to hurt you not
through nursing you buy.
Because when I was nursing you, I would try my best to ensure that I only eat head up.
Throughout my diet, I would ensure, as best as I could, that every single morsel that goes into my body is
any morsel that goes within my body. So try your best
to not eat except that which is a lot. And if you do so, maybe that you will get the feed from the water. So then you will get the ability to do righteous deeds. And what we can take from this is the follows that if we want to raise our kids to be people of righteousness and piety, and if we want to raise our kids to be people of greatness, then we have to ensure that everything we put within their belts happens to be held up. And we don't extend our parents to hell off simply to feed our children or to give them luxuries of life or so on and so forth. Roger, we know in many of the reports, and many of the stories, that the reason why many, many of the great predecessors they became so great
was because of the fact that their parents were very keen on ensuring that they eat only Hello, nothing.
And nothing that has bounced within within their food. In fact, some of the owners of the past wouldn't eat from their own city. Imagine that.
He was known for that he would not eat from the crops of the marsh of Damascus, you would eat from outside because you would think that that, that the crops within Damascus have been polluted with some degree of meaning, the money that was being circulated, so eat for food that would be delivered to him from outside of the city.
Why? Because he didn't want to go in the body that would be considered how long such that it would actually affect his reading and his knowledge and His righteousness and his piety and his closeness to a loss of data. So if you want your children to grow, great, then make sure you ensure that you give them a dot and nothing but a lot
of chocolate. We have a lot of financing over there. So go enjoy
