area that you eat, they used to dry date, you know when they pick the dates, and then you dry the dates, because if you leave it, if you don't dry it properly, it's going to be rotten, this guy gets rotten quickly, right. And so that's why you have fresh dates you have wrote up. And sometimes you want to keep it longer, you have to dry it, it's like you make this like raisins, right with grapes, you can keep it for only certain amount of time, but if you dry it, then inshallah you can keep it for a long time. And we're the same way. And so the Messenger of Allah, the Love Addicts, and bought that land, to orphans. And you know, when children when you buy stuff from children, they don't know
what the value of something is. So the value you can't really buy something from someone who doesn't have who doesn't have the capacity to know the value of something even though the prophets have a lot. So he said, when he wanted to make the masjid, they're the two orphans, they actually want to give to the prophets of Allah, they have some they were, you know, we want to give it to you a Messenger of Allah. But with money that belongs to children. It's just like, let's say for example, a child inherits a lot of money from maybe their parents past the parents, the parents pass away. So maybe somebody comes and says, Listen, you know, you have these two cars here. Let's say these
2x 122 Mercedes, for example, just give me an example. There's two you have two Mercedes here, I will give you two bags of ice cream for the two cars. Right? And so what do you think the child is gonna say? Two bags of ice cream? Take the car? Because it's his right. Two bags of ice cream. Yeah, right. Have you are you going to take two bags of ice? You'll see she would take regular ice cream for a car. Right? So a child she they don't really know the value of something, you give them ice cream, you're like, oh, wow, Mashallah. Yeah, take take the keys, go ahead, you can have the car. But what has happened, that elderly person knows the value of the car, the child doesn't know the
value of the car. So the ice cream that child doesn't know that she can, he or she can buy the whole ice cream, every single ice cream that's in town, right almost, with the amount of those two cars, but they don't know. Something so you're not allowed to take advantage and that's why we use something to a child.
The child buys something from you.
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, Well, I talked to sue for harm, while a humility, Allah, Allah, Allah come
and do not give money to Chile, to those who suffer heart sofa or people don't know, who can't quantify and know the value of something. So when somebody, you know, when when a child
was an orphan, can they give sadaqa? Can they give charity? Can they yes, they can. But it is the responsibility of the guardian to buy and sell the property to look after them just to make sure that they are, you know, they're getting a fair price. And so if they agree, then it's okay. But if they don't have to call it, let's say they buy something, let's say for example, in in, in a Muslim country, a child goes to the store and goes and says, You know what I want to and they have money, they take out money, and they buy something very, very expensive. Right? They buy something very expensive. And then the father parents come back says no, that wasn't my child, you know, took the
money and they wanted to buy this thing and you know, they're not even supposed to buy it. So selling things to a child, somebody who doesn't know the value of something, you can do so but it has to you have to also have the agreement of the guardian. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not take that from them, the land from them why because he could have used it that's somebody who's, who's elderly, they will be able to do so. So the messenger of Allah actually bought that land that land before before that used to hit the Messenger of Allah Allah Allah lesson was told that the machinery Khun before Islam, that people used to bury some of the some people used to bury their
dead here. Like there's somebody, some people like in the old, this is like an old in the old days. So the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam, took out the bones and placed it and moved it to a different place, moved to a different place. So it's not permissible to build a great to build over a grave. But if it's moved already, and there's not it's no longer considered a grave, but this was something that was a long, long time ago. Then
these are some of the narrations that we have some, you know from the books of CRR. And Allah subhana wa knows best of the authenticity verification but in either case, we are not allowed to pray in a masjid that has a grave in it.
And that's when you build it. You build something over a grave the if it was built on
or gray. You're not allowed to pray the masjid that's built over a grave. Some people might say, Well, how about the price of a lot of some mustard? Well, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Masjid. The prophets of the livelihoods of the masjid, in a way is actually not built on a grave, because the gravest next on the side of it. So the great actually on the side, and how the masjid was next to it, because the Prophet sallallahu was when he passed away. The Companions didn't know where to build the very the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said, the prophets and messengers of Allah are buried wherever they die. So wherever
they die, that's where you bury them. So you don't you know, that's where Saddam when the Prophet Salam died there, in the heart in the room of Ayesha della harness the messenger of allah sallallahu. So it was buried there. And that's why when you see the masjid of the prophets of Allah herstellen, if you face the tabler to the left of it, it's a it's an open area. Right? It's an open area. It's not a place. It's not surrounding the masjid where people pray from all directions. Right? And so it's on the side of the Masjid. So the messenger of Allah Allah has bought that land, but that land from two orphans
and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also,
when when the companions were building, the masjid, the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, some also used to participate, and it shows the importance of it, in that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he, first thing that he did was build the masjid. And so this was
right in the second masjid, after or in Islam after the pullback. So cool. That was the first message that the prophets have a lot in order to be built. And it's a very simple question. You might think, Well, what about what would it look like? It was just, you know, Clay, that and on top of it, even half of it only is covered. And it's not covered with a roof or anything like that. It's just, you know,
like, palm fibers, palm palm leaves. So whenever it rained, it used to seep through and that's why sometimes upon the Messenger of Allah, so a lot, so what makes a Jude and there will be remnants of mud on his face after rainfall. Like if it rained the previous night, and it stopped me in the morning. There, it's the masjid would still be wet. And they didn't have carpets like we say it was very simple, no carpet, no lighting. So when it was dark, it was very, when the sun set after sunset, it was extremely dark, and you would hardly be able to see who would pray next to you. Because it didn't have lights in those days. And so the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Allah has
come after finishing the masjid and of course, then of course he had also the rooms next to the masjid be built. So who, during the time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to Medina, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had only one wife that he was living with anybody know who that was?
the prophets of Allah Allah has only had one wife who he was living with when he left Mecca.
Who was it?
my last one, we already saw that just soda because why because
he was married to Aisha, but Aisha was still young, he didn't live with her yet. They had he didn't live with her yet. And so he only had soda and, of course, his first wife Khadija de la Anna, she was she had already passed away. She already passed away in the messenger of allah sallallahu. Even after she passed away, he didn't marry like immediately quickly, immediately and so forth started you know, you know, like some people they think that you know, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married for you know, for for last and things like that. And, but you know, the prophets of Allah Allah has heard from, from Hadith era de la he didn't marry anyone else until
after he was 50 years of age. He could have married anyone in Mecca again, who the type of person that he was, he could have made anywhere else. But he only had an idea about the law and I was after Hadiya Ludhiana passed away, that he made soda and by the order of Allah Subhana Allah, that he makes out and also, it was also i Chateau de la, also by when he saw her in a dream and as this of course, dreams are the prophets and messengers of Allah are considered a revelation. And so this is an order from Allah subhanho wa Taala also, so but he didn't live in Ayesha Delana yet until later on, so he had to have rooms built for him, one for Sudan and one for Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu is going
to be living with him afterwards after his arrival in Medina. So the rules of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were very, very simple. It was very small.
I was so small that you when you would stand up and you reached up to the the top, you would reach you touch the top of the roof. And if you were to sleep and your feet were touching one side, then you stretched out with their hand, you will probably be able to touch the other side. So how big do you think it was? Many of our bathrooms, bigger rooms of the profit some of them.
Like many of our bathrooms, forget about the, you know, forget about our beds, right? Sometimes, you know, we have big beds, some of our beds are bigger than the room of the prophecy.
So it was very simple. And this was the best of mankind. He didn't have a palace built for him. He didn't have multi storey building built for him or you know, a presidential palace or something like the White House or anything like that, or the you know, the, the palaces that the royal emperors of Persia and Rome had no he was he lived a very, very simple life. And the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he used to pray, sometimes it has legs would be in the way. That's why you say, why did he pray somewhere else, because there wasn't anywhere else. Whenever she whenever he wanted to make so Jude and her legs were in the way, he would tap her leg and she would
curl up, curl her legs up. And then he made to you. And after you finish with sujood, she would stray in the legs, her legs again, because he was sleeping on the Messenger of Allah sobre la Lex was praying. So the rules of the messenger of allah sallallahu. So were extremely small. You know, later on when he had another way he had another and the other room be built. But these were just very, very simple rooms that didn't have anything, like we have now. So sometimes, when we think about, you know, I mean 100 level, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah gave us
you know, blessings, and we are able to buy a house. And you know, live in somewhere that spacious, we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for that. But if you're a small place, maybe you sometimes your children are sometimes complaining. Sometimes your wife has complained like, hey, we don't have enough rooms, we don't have this and that. But you think about the best of mankind.
Like how big was his house?
Or, you know, if you were to combine his nine rooms.
At the end when he had nine rooms? If you were to combine his nine rooms, you like a nine room house? Why didn't one that nine room house is probably smaller than your living room. Smaller than your living room. And so and there are people who are actually living in such conditions, you know, believe it or not. That's why whenever you think about what other people have, look at those who have less than you look at those who have less than look at the people who are suffering right now there they have just living in tents, only, they don't have any place to live. And you know, when a lot of people when they just come to America, I'll have the some of us mashallah have nice places.
But I know that even when we first arrived, we didn't have
you know, we were we didn't have even a house, we were living with some other people who were here before us. And we were for a few for an you know, for a few months. And then, you know,
two or three families actually tried it because they didn't have we'd have enough money to pay for the rent. And so sometimes you would share like my parents, we used to have two other people that lived in each one of the rooms for a while. Because coming here, you don't have that much money. You know, you don't have that much money. And so, sometimes I remember actually in the apartment that we used to live in, there was a family from above we used to, we used to see people go in and out. It was a it was a family, not just one family. A couple of families are living in a two bedroom apartment. And we saw so many people coming in and out at least there were at least five families
because they don't you know, they're they're Hispanic. And I remember when they just moved in. We said Subhanallah it's like more people coming
from the angels.
And they never come back out like who are these people coming in and out and you could hear
all times footsteps, you know, there's always somebody up and where are they staying because they have the same amount. So sometimes, you know, there's some areas, some people have very, very small space. I know like even my email a friend of mine, I have a very close friend who's from China.
He's from China. And he told me because we were in our dorm, he says, you know, our family, did you know that my family, we live in a house, that is half the size of this room that we're in? I said, How many people are in your family? So we have like 12 people in our family, like 12 people like the house, you know, our dorm is like this much only, right? This area in front of Masjid here. So how do you get 12? People? Like, first of all, how do you get 12 People 12 children to start with with that Everspace.
Like you, oh, you find ways you find ways, because there's no privacy, so many people are living in and this is, you know, some of our Muslim brothers in China. So, when you think about that, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he was able to do get more than that, if he asked the Companions would have built for him a bigger one. But he only wants to just enough,
just enough, so to to be thankful for whatever has in terms of this world, he didn't. Well, he wasn't someone who, you know, was chasing the dunya or anything like that, you know, he was furthest one from that. But the Messenger of Allah was very generous. He was very kind, whenever he had Allah Subhana Allah gave him so much if he would wipe he wanted a palace to be built from he could have easily had the palace we built for him. But it's a lesson for us also to know that, that sometimes, you know, sometimes of course, when Allah gives you be thankful for what you have. And but if you don't, then know that the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah himself, even his rooms were less
small, but he was, they were happy because it's not about the house and of course, the spacious house is part of happiness, all good, right, good car, those things, you know, and you know a pious wife, these are the pleasures of this world. And if Allah gives it to us, hamdulillah be thankful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and increase in your worship of Allah Subhana Allah, but the Messenger of Allah Allah Allah Allah has of his his rules are very simple the masjid was very simple. But the masjid the you know, like sometimes we I know some brothers
when they come into the masjid and they say Oh, this is not really a masjid.
Like this is not really a masjid or they go to another masjid they honor you like some of them are targets in you know, in, in Asia, some of the villages they're asking you know, for funding to build masjid and we don't really have a masjid I will be talking about you don't have a masjid.
Like this is a very very nice Masjid. The Masjid itself is not the building because there are many massages are very beautiful. Right but during Friday prayer, how many people you have
you have three people I know some massages that I go in mashallah, um, much nicer messages in this one. And I'm not even talking about far away. Like in the Seattle area, I go, I went to pray one time, mother a prayer. And it was in Walden the imam in me. That was it from our air. And this was a nice Masjid. It was a nice a nice message. So it's not about the building itself. It's about the activities in the masjid. To try to bring people to the machine to learn to you know, to pray and Hamdulillah this is actually even though you know, you look at this masjid, this used to be a garage. This, this, this area here used to I remember when we first started praying, like, of course
this machine was, you know, this, the houses of I was built was bought in 1974 this 1974 And we came here
in the early 80s 1980 81. So that's when we prayed here before, mustard, the Northgate Masjid was open. And this was the this was not connected. Right when this was the mother pray area was only this area. And this was our Quran class right here next to it. And there was a wall here see this area? That used to be a wall right hamdulillah it's still the same but hamdulillah maybe we can improve. Now the tent is also there. Right? But the hamdulillah the brothers who the people who came together and bought the company people who prayed here, a lot of people prayed here and the very beginning you know a lot of people learn Quran here. A lot of people practice their Deen here
accepted Islam here. And so it's very, very important to come together and have a masjid. It doesn't have to be something very, very fancy. And so it doesn't happen. I know some brothers who like when they will build the Masjid. They said, Oh no, this is not really a masjid. It doesn't have a dome.
you didn't know
and you didn't have a dome, you didn't even have a minaret there then we get up on the roof and make the run. And so it wasn't like it's not like it's not a messy the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was it was blessing mustard, but was much more simple than even this mustard Do you think this is simple, it was much more simple than even this mustard. But it was from it came nor in La la la la reached from reached all the East in the West. And so be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and of course in sha Allah we try to improve and bring you know sometimes, you know make to make sure that we have more space for the people but really the thing that we should really be focused on
is actually the activities in the masjid, the Quran classes, the teaching, bringing, you know your your children so that they can also learn the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. So the messenger of Allah Salah lodge Masjid
wasn't that wasn't that big at the beginning. And of course it was expanded later on. But so that's the first thing. The first thing that the prophets hadn't built, and also the people who were poor, they didn't have families, they had come, they used to live in the masjid. They used to live and they were known as Allah sofa. So they would sleep in the back in the masjid, they would spend their time waiting for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam management to come. And then they would learn from him, they would follow him they were the students of knowledge. During those days, that was a to the Prophet Masjid was a university, also a dorm for the university students. And it was also what it
was also the place where the companions and whenever the Messenger of Allah would send a group of
fighters or a group of people to fight he would send from the masjid and many of them were the people in the masjid themselves. So who are the people in the masjid, they were students and soldiers at the same time. They were students, it was a dorm. And it was also a, you know, the place where you put the soldiers also. So I need to so that there was also used during the time during the battles of
when there was someone who was injured, that was used to take care of those who were injured also. And also in the prisoners were captured. After the Battle of where did they put them?
They put them they tie them to the the pillars in the masjid.
Because so that they so they could see the Muslims, the Muslim Brotherhood, and many of them when they saw how strong the Muslims were. And so the Muslims were bringing food to them.
You bring food to them, and feeding them and they will bring the prophets of Allah Allah who would order them to bring in these people were just trying to use to just use to kill them before and so the prophets of Allah Allah in some order the companions to give them and the Companions would give them, some of them will bring whatever they didn't bring leftovers. know for many of us, they didn't have leftovers, they would actually cook for the the prisoners and the way that they were treated. They were treated so kindly, that many of the prisoners ended up accepting Islam. And many of the prisoners accepted Islam because they were there in the masjid when the Muslims would pray, and they
would hear the Quran.
And then later on some of them also, some of them has had some of those prisoners. What did they used to do? The prisoners used to be the teachers.
They used to teach those who could not those who have family members who could not ransom their prisoners. They used to teach so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered them said, If you could teach 1010 of the children of the unsought to read perfect to read and write proficiently, then you could go up for set free. So the people of Makkah, they were merchants, and most of the merchants that are more educated, they know how to read and write. So people in Mecca, there was a trading town. So and Medina was a farming town. So Medina and mainly the the majority of them were farmers. And generally farmers are more simple. Like even nowadays, we see like, you know, those who
live in the city, they're more educated. They, they, you know, they're more focused on education and because they're dealing with people, and people coming in and out, but even I'm pretty sure like even in private wealth in Somalia where people will live outside. They're not as educated and as the people in the city so that people outside those farmers are shot
upwards. They're less educated than the people who are in the city. And so and Medina, the majority of the people in Medina, some of the most of the people, Medina did not know how to read or write. And so the people in Mecca, the majority was the opposite. Most of the people knew how to read and write. And so when the prisoners were captured, they were ordered to teach. And so if they were able to teach 10, of course, the quicker the children learn,
the quicker the children learn, the faster you go home.
So these prisoners ended up being the teachers. And it changed the culture of Medina. So the new gen, the next generation, became a generation that knew how to read and write. But before that, the majority that people, Medina, they were mainly farmers, they did not know how to read or write. So the masjid of the prophets of the language was used for many, for for many purposes. And it wasn't just a place of prayer, but it was a university in and of itself. University and it's very placid, even though it was very simple, extremely simple. So I like as I mentioned, so simple that
they had only the roof, covering some parts, and it wasn't when it rained, it would seep through still, but it didn't rain much in those days. And so most of the time, it's not wet. And most of the time, it's not really like, you know, like the weather that we have here. So that's the first thing that the Prophet saw the rawness of it. The second thing that the messenger of allah sallallahu did was he paired the Muslims with each other, he paired the Muslims with each other, those who are from Makkah, did not have a place to stay. And so he would pair them with,
with some of the companions, and he would find those who are similar, like, for example of the amount of now and Saudi Arabia, he was the one he was one of the more wealthy people in Mecca, and dramatic now in Saudi Arabia was one of the most more wealthy people also. And he didn't, but when he left Mecca, he didn't have anything, he didn't come with anything. And so the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, he or he, he asked the Companions, the Mecca and people in Medina to help the brothers to take care of them. So you know what they decided to do? They got together and they said, listen, a messenger of Allah, this is, what we're going to do is we're going to,
we're going to keep half our wealth, and half we're going to give to our brothers. So imagine look at look at the sacrifice. Half so half of the land, if they have like a
date, they palms, and they had some land they was shared, they would say, Okay, you take half and the other one will take the other half. And they would give them half their wealth. They would give them half the well. And Saudi Arabia even said, Okay, listen, you know, he said, You're not married. I have two wives. You know, I'll divorce one of them the one that you like, you want. Yeah, you choose. So look, Subhan Allah for Ask me. Yeah, let me see. I'll give you this.
Okay, this one, right? No, he said, No, you choose the one that you want. And now divorce her. And after she finished her ID and you can marry her, like Subhanallah they're willing to give up their wealth. Right, but the Companions from Mecca, they didn't take advantage of it. So they would say, you know, like, for example, that I met him now he used he said to you know, his companion, he said, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you and your family, show me where the marketplaces where's the marketplace. Let me just go to work. Take care of myself. They show me where the marketplaces he didn't even know the marketplaces, because he didn't know he didn't, he didn't live in Medina, they
just got here. He said, Just show me where the marketplaces and I'll take care of myself. And so a few days later, a few days later, the messenger of allah sallallahu alyssum saw
saw him some there might have now and he saw some. He saw some remnants on his face. And do you know what it was?
You know, a woman when they put makeup, right? So imagine
coming to the masjid. He doesn't realize, right? Like, you know, when your wife kisses you and she has a she has lipstick, but what's on you what's gonna get on your lips or on your cheeks?
So the Prophet Salam sees this, because, you know, everyone knows what it is.
Everyone knows that. Hey, what happened? What did you What's this? What's this that I see? Oh, my Oh,
I just got married. I just got married. And he said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What did you give her in? You know what, what did you
What do you give her? In Sudan
the dowry and also so you know, he said I gave her a nugget of gold or gold. Right? So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I will live well, I'll be chat. I will. And he says, Make sure because nobody knew that you were married. So he said, No, you have to have olema even if it's just one, one when she for one lap, that's it. So have a just I just have a Lima. So he was very, he was, of course a very, very skilled
businessman. Right and Maccha he was very wealthy, but he loved everything. But he said, Show me the marketplace we show in the marketplace, I'll be able to. So how do you make money if you don't have anything? You go to the marketplace?
How do you make money? Can you sell something but you have to sell? Well, the first thing you're going to do is what?
You're going to work for somebody.
You work for somebody, Hey, you guys need something to carry and give me a little now he has some money, he's gonna buy itself by itself. And he bought himself until he's able to get married even. He's able to get married. But so the companions in Medina, they wanted to give half. So the prophets of Allah him heard about it heard what they were planning to do. He says, No, don't do that. Don't do that. Don't do that. And why? Because what were they doing some of the companions like coming? Oh, like what I do now? Like I have this, all this land on this date palms? The trees? I don't know what to do. Yeah. Because imagine many of us are growing in the city. Right? We grew up in the city
and somebody gives us a rice paddy, what do you do? What am I supposed to do? I don't know what to do. I don't know. And even the prophets of Allah, Allah and some did not know how to grow. That's because they that's not that's not what he used to do. That he himself. That's why the story that I mentioned for one time, you know, like, the Messenger of Allah, Allah, I'm sorry, the companions.
We are some of the companions they were they they were pollinating the date palms. And how do you, you when you grow when you have a date, day tree, if you let it grow, and you only have certain amount of dates, they'll come up, but if you pollinate them, if you take the pollen and you start hitting it, so you take the dry pollen, and you start hitting the date palms, then it will you you have more dates, so the companions in Medina, one companion was doing this. And the messenger of allah sallallahu later looked at him and he said, What are you doing?
So what are you doing? So that companion hearing this from the Prophet salamis, he went down, he went home?
What are you doing? Like, so he just went home, it's okay.
And a few months later, he comes. And all of his friends, all the people who have you know, they pumps, there are plenty of dates. He doesn't have lab dates. And so he's like, Yeah, Allah, you know, he's looking at the dates he has less than everybody else, because he didn't apologize, his date palms. And he comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, a messenger of Allah who remember that day you said this and that. And the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and then said, I was only I was asking you, because what he said, What are you doing? That companion? What was he thinking? He was thinking?
is the messenger of Allah is asking, What am I doing? He's thinking, What are you doing is a rhetorical question. Like, we don't need to do that. Put your trust in Allah. You know, like, when you say to somebody, what are you doing? Okay, okay. It's, it's like, you know what, there's one way to tell somebody not to do something like what are you doing? Meaning don't what he understood was don't do it. Don't do it. Because you have to put your trust in Allah so I put my trust in Allah I didn't pollinate now the days they come out.
Right. And so the promise
let me be promoted on Yeah, how come you know about this more than me? Yeah, you're the dunya cares about, you know, like growing these date palms, you know more than me. He wasn't. He was not scolding him for what he did. He was questioning him. Because he didn't know he wasn't telling him to don't do it. But he understood it to me, don't do it. Put your trust in Allah, whether you are asking to come out. That's how he understood it. So what does this prove this hadith is inside Muslim. It proves that the Companions from Makkah, they didn't know how to grow dates, because that's not their thing. Their merchants like them. Now a worker these were people who are not used
to they don't know how to they're not farmers, right? They don't take care of you know, the date and, and fig and so forth. And so, now the people Mac they come and their companions are saying okay, you can have
After land, what are you going to do? Like, what would you do somebody, let's say, gave you half of their land.
Like say, mashallah, you went to Malaysia, Indonesia, and then we should have local rice paddies. Right? And somebody says, okay, brother, you know, like sha Allah, you know, we need it, you need help here, you can have this you can, you can take care, you take half of this land here, and you can plant the rice like, what am I supposed to do? How do I plant rice? What do I do? You have no idea. You have no idea what to do. And even if you knew how to do it, you're not ready, you're not fit to do it. Right? It's not easy. You have to know how to, you have to know what kind of fertilizer to use, how much water to use, and these people they grew up raising, you know, growing,
you know, rice or planning dates. So they know. So the Prophet saw them said, No, don't do that. He said, Don't do that. So what did he give? What did he advise him to do? But it shows how generous they were, they're willing to give half half of what they have.
And so the prophets of Allah who said, No, don't do that. Why don't you work, the whole land, everything that you have, and ask them to help you out.
Ask them to help you out. Whenever you need help, just ask you a companion to help you. So you work together. He doesn't know what to do you tell them what to do. And after the asking for help, and then when the profits come that you share, you share the profits, otherwise, when part of the land is trying to use, he doesn't know what to do. So you work together and then you share the profits, you help them that way. Right. And now later on, of course, the people of Mecca, they're going to Okay, now I know what to do. You know what to do, because they work with them. Yeah, just work together and help each other. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to use two, pair them
up. And they used to take care of them. And even though they didn't know them, they were not. They were not related. This is imagine some people coming and you don't even know them. And you're taking care of it, bringing them into your own house, and taking care of them and helping them out. So that's why, you know, like, subhanAllah, they're still there are this particular act, we, as Muslims are taught this, to help those who have fled from places where they don't have enough food? Maybe they're refugees. And do you know who actually applies this?
Many of the Muslims, many people before I don't know now, but even even those who fled World War countries, war torn countries are torn countries, many of them to this day,
especially amongst the Chiang community, there are some who have sponsors that they still are connected with. Why do you know who they are?
That the churches,
the churches, when refugees used to come in the 80s, the churches would speak to the families and the families would take their families in.
They would take Cambodian families and, and many, of course, most of the Muslim families, you know, when you have Islam, you see the light and somebody tells shows you the dark room, you already know that that's dark, if you're using you know the truth. So most Muslims, of course, most of the major, almost all Muslims, they're not going to follow the religion.
They're not going to follow Christianity and so forth. But I know some Vietnamese family and Cambodian family, to this day, those non Muslims, when they were sponsored, here, they're still Christians because of their family. Because those families, and they took care of them. They brought them in, they took care of them, they sponsor them. And to this day, he was some Muslims, because those those families were so kind to them. They're still connected to them. They still know them to this day, because when they came in, they didn't have anything. They were the ones who helped them out. And they welcomed them in their houses into the house in Seattle. We're talking about this
isn't Seattle. I don't know when the when, because I wasn't here when the you know, when the immigration from Somalia came. I don't know what they did. But even to this day, we have some Iraqi brothers, sisters and brothers from Myanmar. They still have who are the who are the people who are taking care of the churches, right. The churches are the ones who are taking care of all anyone in the world. Yeah.
Yes, the churches, take them in. And so where are the Muslims? We are taught this during the time of the prophets of Allah and some of the companions open their houses open their hearts, they open their
I was and they gave them the money. They owed money. They did this for home for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And they're not related to them. They're not even from the same, you know, same race. Now like they've totally from different Medina, like, like right now I'm talking about some of the churches that take care of these families and what and what are they? What are they trying to do?
They're trying to get you to follow their religion, their Deen, that's the Dow. And so we are taught to take care of refugees and take care of people. But a lot of our Muslim brothers and sisters, we just even though right now we're established and we might be able to do so. But you know, we're not focused on helping some of the things that you know that we're doing some of the things that were taught to in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So why did they do this? Why? Because? Because Allah Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah subhana, Allah Allah,
united us, with La Ilaha illa Allah and you know the Arabs,
there was nothing. There's nothing that can unite them. There's nothing that they are very divided. Nothing that
some people like even to this day, you know, some people like they call to what?
To socialism, right? There's some socialist governments, people call it socialism. People call into democracy people call into this group, this ideology, that ideology, they are to never unite under anything, except for Lila The only thing that will bring
the Muslims together the Arab nations together it's not nationalism or anything like that. No, it's not this ideology or this the ideology. It's like the law that's the only thing that will bring people together. And when we leave that, that's when you become divided. That's when we become divided. And that's why at the end, at the end, you know, right now, there are people who are going through the tunnels looking for who that can kill people right looking in for example, for example, they're going through the tunnels looking to kill looking at if they can they killing in the tunnel and they kill it from above also, dropping but there will come a time. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said to cartoon you who will fight the hood, and there will come a time
in which even the trees the rocks and the trees will say Oh, Muslim. Yeah, Muslim. Has a you do this, there's a hoodie behind me. His hide the No Place from the height. There's no place for the who to hire. Now, they're chasing after people who say Lila
Is this an awesome one?
to say yes, but it's gonna be right. Yeah, right now right now, right? They have their think they have their you know, the technology and so forth. But there will come a time when Allah subhanaw taala make the trees and the rocks and what is the most what is the rock say? What is the rock say? There's a rock say yeah, Philistine. Yeah. Iraqi? Yes, God. Yes. Early. No. The Emirati? No, no, no, once again, say
Muslim, or Muslim. There is a Muslims of the United Oh, Muslim. This is the hoodie behind. There's no place for the
Union. We know this for sure. This is what's going to happen this good. This is what gives us also it's, you know, it's something that we know that the prophets of Allah Allah who is who does not speak from his own whims and desires. But in the end, Allah subhanaw taala, will, will give victory to those who worship Allah subhanho wa taala. But what is it that brings people together?
The only thing that will bring us together is Lila and
all those leaders who are coming together because of what these are, this is an Arab conference. This is this and this is that now until you come under La ilaha IL Allah you will never be united
until everyone comes and says, You know what we are uniting underlying law. Muhammad Rasulullah doesn't matter where you're coming from what tribe and so that's the only thing that will bring people together. The outs in the hostage. They are fighting for centuries. The father had been fighting for years and years and years.
And then there was Islam that brought them together. Even though you're who you heard in Medina.
They became jealous because they never knew they never thought that there was gonna be a time where the Arabs would unite.
They didn't think that that could happen.
They didn't think that could happen they were waiting for. They're waiting for the Prophet sallallahu Lucca and then destroy them. But when they under Lila and Allah under the leadership of the Messenger of Allah herself, so why, what was it that brought them together? It was, of course, Lila Helaba. And is who are the Manaea This is Islamic. The images bathe based on faith, and that's the strongest EMA that's the strongest bond because the prophets of Allah, Allah Allahu wa sallam said, when Hubballi Allah, whoever loves for the sake of Allah, but Allah, Allah, Allah dislikes for the sake of Allah, woman and Allah. And he also prevents, holds back for the sake of Africa, distech
mother, Iman, then his Iman, is complete, when you do things for the sake of Allah as the strongest thing, because you're not doing it for any other reasons. Right now, there are people who are doing it for different reasons. They joined together, they come together because of for their own benefit. It's not for the sake of Allah. And you know what, like, sometimes I just do you know, like, because of the cost of us, do you know what they have?
You know, what's very, like, widespread right now.
What is it that that says
that people need
natural gas, huge amount of natural gas in that area? And they've already made an agreement? Of course, it's off the coast of us. So of course, they who they can take it because internationally, it would be like somebody taking somebody some other people's work. So right now there's a conflict between
Europe, America and Russia, what is Russia have a lot of
natural gas, they don't want to depend on Russia. Now they need they still need that to heat up to warm Europe still needs it. But there's enough of the Kosovars to take over where they won't need
as much. They don't need hardly anything from from from Russia.
And so there's the you have to understand we're living in a time of you might think, Oh, this is all conspiracy theory and things like that. If you look it up, these are articles written before all this happen.
Before all of this happen, Netanyahu has a map picture with a map map.
And he has a pipeline already already. They've already planned the pipeline to Europe, from where from Gaza, off the coast of Azusa.
So what why are people and you know what they're going to work on? Who are they working with?
with Egypt also. So what are they going to do eventually? Allah knows best Allah is Allah is all knowing and people plan. People plan to Allah is the best of planners.
Eventually, we're like, okay, we need to move these people. They've been bombed so much as moved into Egypt, they need to take over that area. What do they want? It's all about money, just follow the trail.
Yeah, further and further, just follow the money trail. And they don't even care about babies being killed or anything like that's too vanilla
two years ago
came together just to extend the curse. And by two degrees, yes. Just came in, in the middle. When they joined with the Libya, I said you cannot go through. So there are a lot of things going on right now that we
it's a time of deception. The prophets of Allah Vallehermoso said Vinea days, soon and hada. Before the day before the our years of deception.
The years of deception. The person who is trustworthy is deemed untrustworthy. And the person who is who is untrustworthy will be deemed trustworthy.
it's a time in which and you know that there's so many things going on. And one of the one you know, one of the things that when all of you behind all of it just like even the Euphrates, the prophets of Allah they have said there between the Euphrates and and the Tigris.
If the rivers in Iraq there will be a mountain of gold will be discovered and people will go and fight for it they will go
then so of course the Companions you know hearing about this and like oh what do we do during that time so don't go because out of 100 people everyone thinks he's going to only one person will get it and that one everybody will think he's gonna He's He's that one person
that others don't go chasing the dunya
chasing me so there are people everyone who's coming together they're coming together for different reasons.
Now for Lila
it's not for the for Lila and Allah and they don't really care you know, this person died these people die and that those people they they're only worried about these people. The thing is, it's not like the poor
the richest people on earth already
some of the richest people on earth already it's not like you're poor. But you still need more. Still need more you never have enough even if you have to take over and kill people. They don't care. They don't care there's no there's no there's no mercy in their hearts whatsoever. But anyways, that's differ a different time but the Companions
you know, the thing that strengthens us and brings us together the prophets of Allah Allah who has already said, in our cell Corrado Iman, and hobo fillet will move the villa, the strongest bond of faith is loving for the sake of Allah and disliking for the sake of Allah. Why, because when you do something for the sake of Allah, that's the strongest bond, that is the bond that cannot be broken. Because it's done for the sake of Allah. You're not doing it for yourself. You're not doing it for any other reason except for the plight of Allah subhanaw taala in a manual timer, commonly what Allah so when the Companions gave the, the food to the poor, and the prisoners in the manual time,
hopefully what Hila Landry domain comm designer will ask you for, we don't even need a thank you from you. We don't even need anything, you don't need to pay us back anything. And so loving for the sake of Allah, and doing so for the sake of Allah and coming together for the sake of Allah. That's where we need to work on. And that's what we need by doing so how do you do so? By sacrificing for each other, helping each other? The reward is very great. So you like loving for your brother love for yourself? That's minimal. Yeah, etha loving it for your brother even more than what you love for yourself. And then when we do that in sha Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring us back.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala will put blessing in this OMA because for us, we work for the hereafter. We want we want the love of Allah, why? And how do we attain the
Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Hadith, he says, You call Allah,
the whole light Allah The Prophet said that Allah says, Whatever capital would have been here, whatever it might have been to him I love will be for those who love each other, for my sake will not be jealous enough here. And those who sit together because of my sake, well which is already in here, and those who visit each other for my sake, well motivated enough here and those who sacrifice for each other, for my sake, they sacrifice for each other for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and these are the people who Allah Subhana Allah loves. These are the people who Allah subhana light that will unite on the Day of Judgment Sharla with the prophets and messengers of ALLAH SubhanA wa
Tada and these are the people who will also be shaded in the Day of Judgment, in which there'll be no shade, except for the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala so if you want Allah Subhana Allah to be shade to shade you on the Day of Judgment, that help you know then also be there for the for your other brothers. And so that love for the sake of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said we need help. Do you want help Allah if you help your brothers, Allah Subhana Allah will help also help you. He says all Muslim, Muslim and Muslim is the brother and the brother of another Muslim law. Yeah, Reba who will use well I use Lemo
brother is a Muslim is a brother when I Muslim descent he does not oppress him he does not abandon him. Roman Kanopy Hadith Yeah, he, whoever is whoever takes care of the needs of his brothers. Can Allah huffy hydrati Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of his needs. Roman Farage and Muslim and quarterback, whoever helps a Muslim in times in a tear levy from him a calamity or problem that he may have for Raj Allahu Anhu. Corbett in Minnkota Binyomin Allah Subhana Allah they will help you with the problems that you will have in the hereafter on the
Day of Judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you, Roman Satara Muslim and who whosoever hides the faults of another Muslim settler hola who Yama pm Allah will hide you false on the Day of Judgment, high yield false on the Day of Judgment. So when we do something for the sake of Allah when we do all of these things for the sake of Allah, and we're one body, that's where we that's where we unite, and that's where we gain strength. And so this is when, when the messenger of Allah came to Medina,
they have the hood, and the hypocrites, but the Muslims were strong. And that's why they couldn't break the Muslims, the hood couldn't break the Muslim, they couldn't divide the Muslims. And whenever they tried every corner, every, every way, every way they could not do so. Because the Muslims were strong and they did so for the sake of Allah, it is for the sake of Allah. We do things that ALLAH SubhanA wa strengthens us. And so that's why the owner has to come together and we have to come together, we have to help each other we have to visit each other we have to whenever we see a brother who has a need we have to help us
in this life and well blessing for us also in our life, families in sha Allah and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to unite us our hearts and to join us again also in the Hereafter with the prophets and messengers in the highest level and paradise I mean you believe in so and it was inshallah we ask Allah Subhana Allah to teach us that which benefits and benefits that was Titus masala lol and Amina Mohammed well Ali Salam anyone who has any questions or anything like that Sharla we can
