So we begin our session inshallah today, let me just set up my screen over here. Our right so we have our screen set up. And let me just open the session.

00:01:57 --> 00:02:39

Okay, great. So we are still carrying on our discussions in our journey through the House of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Those of you that were here last time, if you remember, we give you a very preliminary highlight of what did the house of Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam look like in the past? Now, I think there was a lot of interest from people. So we are going to take a little bit of a detour from our regular prophetic home depth in terms of like entrance and stuff like that, but it can sit on water having to lie shell when it comes to law, right? We are going to take a detour. And based on requests of individuals, I'm going to spend maybe 10 to 15 minutes in sha Allah Huhtala

00:02:39 --> 00:03:24

today, trying to give you a quick summary of how did the house of Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam look like? So we will go through different phases? How did it expand? How did it go through? Why the Kama Sutra Rahmatullah to match modern image? How are you doing? So what we're going to do in sha Allah is show you some graphics, and then give you a perspective of, you know, when we say, our, our 2500, or 3200, or even 1000 square foot house is too small, then, yeah, yeah, we're gonna get some perspective into that in sha Allah today. Alright, Bismillah we begin.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:34

So, remember, we talked about the layout. So I wanted to give you a quick recap, for those of you that are here. Let me just make this bigger one second.

00:03:37 --> 00:04:12

Here we go. Good. So for those of you that were here last time, if you remember, we were having discussions, and we said that, you know, I wanted to give everybody a some sort of Prospect as to how did the house of Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam look like at that time, but Eagleman Salam Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh is Akia welcome, Salam ravintola. Mayor, I hope you guys are doing well in sha Allah, and we are carrying our discussions on the house of prophets of Allah, how do you sell them? So what you see over here, this was where the Qibla used to be right here. So the people I was facing this way, and then what would happen is these were the houses of the Sahaba these are the

00:04:12 --> 00:04:54

house was of the prophets of Allah salams wives, different wives that were there. So if you look at it in this perspective, you have like bent on selama his house was over here, you had have side of the Allahu anha. You had Aisha Radi Allahu anha. And we talked about it that, you know, there were two types of houses at that time. So you had houses over here, if you look at it, you had houses that had some sort of a courtyard to them. So they had they had a covered area. And then they had an area that was courtyard. So it was like it was a courtyard. It was a small outside, kind of like fenced backyard type of thing that we have, you know, our backyards are pretty huge, but Yeah,

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

something like that. But then you also had houses that did not have that privilege.

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

So you had a house, that would just be a room. And then you would have a door and you would exit and you would be out, you would enter the house, and then you would just be in your room. And your room was the house. That's about it. So we talked about all of this last time, you can refer to the last session, I'm not going to dwell too much on this. And this is the slide we left you at, right? We said this was, you know, the house of Prophet sallallahu sallam. What I wanted over here is two things. Number one, I wanted to give us a perspective

00:05:34 --> 00:05:43

as to how blessed you and I are, like we cannot thank Allah subhanaw taala enough

00:05:44 --> 00:06:34

to be able to have a house this big, right to be able to have a house that you know, a house that you can say 900 square feet, masha Allah, like you are living in a mansion, compared to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam. So before I do that, so if you notice over here, the next three slides, what I'm going to do is I'm going to show you the building blocks of the house of Prophet sallallahu sallam. And by the way, people to this day in Yemen, people in the poor areas of Arabia till this day, they build their houses from something which is called Lebbon. So over here, you see these bricks, these are called Lebbon they are basically lots of soil and then clay mixed with water and

00:06:34 --> 00:07:09

they put them in frames I'll show you a video and then these are called saffron Nuttle these are SAF and I'll show you how till this day in the city where I was studying you know with my shoes and my scholars in Aqsa till this day how they use Saffron knuffel as a form of like, you know, creating a barrier or backyard boundary and few other things inshallah so let's watch our next first video I want you guys to let me know if you're able to hear this I'm not sure if this is the first time I'm doing it so I'm not sure if the video is going to play and you are able to hear it if you are not then you let me know

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


00:07:17 --> 00:07:41

this was basically you don't need to hear all of this I'll talk about it so you know what they're doing is over here at the back. So they're just taking a whole bunch of clay mixing it with water then they're going to go and they're going to put it in these frames. So you see these frames that they have these are basically frames they will put all of these soil and clay and water mixed mixture into this clay

00:07:42 --> 00:07:43

and then

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

the cover up

00:07:48 --> 00:07:55

and then they take that frame out and then you have these Lebbon they have these bricks they're called Levin and now he's explaining the benefits of Lebbon

00:07:58 --> 00:08:01

so necessary to rob we buy soil

00:08:02 --> 00:08:04

they've been we buy flippin which is clay

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

and some water

00:08:11 --> 00:08:15

and then we No no no back back back back

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

sorry guys I'm learning all of this myself to

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

Mr drop

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


00:08:36 --> 00:08:55

and he says the benefit is it doesn't cost us anything it's cheaper to buy soil and then get some clay and then just make it you know put mix it with water and build some frames and dry them out in this heat so they become like rock solid. And then he says it doesn't cost us but it's benefits

00:08:57 --> 00:09:28

so he says what happens is during winter times it retains heat. So whatever is the heat inside it prevents the cold to enter inside. And during summer times it prevents the heat from coming inside and keeps the inside cool. So the benefit of these type of houses that were made from Lebbon were that you know they were a climate so if it was really hot it keeps you really cool inside and if it's really really cold outside it keeps the internal heat and prevents temperature from leaving outside

00:09:31 --> 00:09:31


00:09:36 --> 00:09:37

so they're going to show you how

00:09:42 --> 00:09:46

my so like this is how they dried up looks or

00:09:47 --> 00:09:49

are you serious? Like it's gonna keep doing this to me

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52


00:09:53 --> 00:09:54


00:09:55 --> 00:09:56

then why

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


00:10:02 --> 00:10:03


00:10:04 --> 00:10:07

So he's saying that it cost me like 140

00:10:09 --> 00:10:43

of his like Yemeni rial, it's like really cheap for him to build houses. And most of the houses in poor areas in Yemen are built from that. So that those were the bricks that you saw at the house of Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now let's go into remember that fence that we had, we're going to get back to all of that, but the fence, those fences are built from Saphan nothing. So it's basically the leaves of the palm tree, the dry them out, there is a process of drying it out, there's a whole industry that runs, you're not off the remains of the tree of Nakhla the tree off the

00:10:44 --> 00:10:48

palm tree or the date Pam and date palm, let's go into this

00:10:49 --> 00:10:51

when you go to the Senate when I

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

first saw the lady in

00:11:05 --> 00:11:18

the corner so you see what they have is they have two of these wooden sticks, they're tied. And then what happens is they cut from the edge of the tree that sat in that tree, you know, the whole

00:11:19 --> 00:11:38

branch that has those, you know, green leaves dried up, and then they would tie them they would put them in there one opposite to another kind of like a threading and then they will tighten them up so that there's very little space for anybody else to see things from outside. So he's going to show that right now

00:11:50 --> 00:12:09

you see how he like tucked it in, that's how usually they would tuck it in and then they would build the whole space out of it. Now there's some really interesting things like you know, for example, he has developed a tool himself like Subhanallah licking the creativity of these individuals he has developed his own using gonna show us let me go and show you the

00:12:11 --> 00:12:15

Yeah, so he puts he places one of those Saphan knuckles in there

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

he tied to like a simple rope or a coin

00:12:31 --> 00:12:36

so you see how men will work and labor this is like killed this day people do this

00:12:37 --> 00:12:38

in parts of every

00:12:43 --> 00:12:43


00:12:49 --> 00:12:58

Holly Jensen Papa. And so by wrapping all of this, he has been able to make this beautiful setting that shaded from stuff and nothing

00:13:02 --> 00:13:17

you see that area that you see is showing you that's what he has wrapped around. And then he uses that so they would use multiple aspects of staff and nothing to build a house in specific you know, when it comes comes to the roof of the house, let's go to the

00:13:21 --> 00:13:33

so at around 353 you'll see that you know you'll see how the the ceiling or the the covering the top covering of the house, roof or ceiling whatever you call it, how it was for the for the time of our lives

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

show the coach now he's gonna show you that right now.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:25

So you see that this is how Saphan suicide it's all covered from the palm tree leaves. And then on the top, they would do the same thing. They would run like multiple wood layers, and then it would like, you know, thread a thread. So those two wood sticks and they would thread the leaf or that that that whole branch through that leaf so that it doesn't fly away. And these were the these were till this day those materials are still used at the time of sort of law, but till this day Subhanallah these things are used

00:14:28 --> 00:14:47

Yeah, so it's mainly for privacy and privacy, the ones that are fence and then for the shade, it's mainly for obviously protecting you from the shape. Now, this is like you those lemons that you see and remember I showed you those bricks till this day people are building houses using these in the gardens of palm trees

00:14:48 --> 00:14:57

in Saudi Arabia or in Dubai or in Morocco, places those places, you know, those things are readily available when it comes Salam Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

All right, let's

00:15:00 --> 00:15:19

get into this. This is what you guys have been waiting for. So these are the dimensions of the house of Prophet sallallahu sallam. So this is the house of Aisha Radi Allahu anha that Badman Hashem. You have a door that was made out of wood. So it was a door that was made out of wood. Let me actually make this even bigger for you. You don't need to see me you need to be able to see the presentation. Let me see.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:21

Come on.

00:15:23 --> 00:15:31

Is that better for you guys? Is that Is that better? Are they concerned? And what happens a lot everyone, is that better for you? So you're able to actually see

00:15:33 --> 00:15:54

that okay, so let me cover this and then what we can go back. So right now you see, the this was the highest of our house of eyeshadow, the Allahu anha This is Badman crush up, this is door that was a wooden door that there was there. This was the whole outside yard and over here or backyard, if you want to call it made out of stuff in the fall. So we've already

00:15:55 --> 00:16:24

you will already shown you what this was made of. So you had basically Lebbon or those bricks, and then you had staff and nothing which was placed on the top as a roof and you had that stuff in the field on the site. Now look at the dimensions over here. So the back yard, or the front yard, or the entrance yard. This was five meters long by two and a half meters, right? Five meters long, about two and a half meters.

00:16:25 --> 00:17:06

The House of Prophets, I'm allowed to sell them, the room that he lived in was five by three, right five by three, it was not perfectly square. So that you see in the end, it's like 4.9 meters and one side and it's five. So it was like a little bit like you know, like opening up like that. So it was tight at the back but it was more open to the front. And you had like imagine this was the house of Prophet sallallahu sallam. Most people in the Middle East when they would go they would want to be able to get a house that had rooms that were like they would say, you know, hum selfie or back five by four rooms. I need five by four rooms. That's the room I want and I'm looking for four to five,

00:17:06 --> 00:17:40

five by four rooms Rasul Allah had just one that was his kitchen. That was his, his bedroom, that was his wardrobe that every single thing that he owned, was in this one singular room Subhanallah So just think about this for a second. And what Allah has blessed us, what Allah has blessed you what Allah has blessed me, and Subhan Allah may Allah Subhana Allah Allah Unitas with the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in akhira. But you know, if you think about it for a second,

00:17:41 --> 00:18:15

he didn't want to palace, he did not own Subhan Allah He didn't own like your all my tools, he did not have any of this. What did he have? He had courage. And he had passion from Allah subhanaw taala. Right, that he was passionate to spread this message. That courage, that passion that Allah gave him and he was spreading, and you have to understand that, you know, he was able to, to work hard and spread all of this message. And we must understand

00:18:17 --> 00:18:28

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam struggled for you. And for me, he had a genuine struggle for you and for me to be able to get this message.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30


00:18:31 --> 00:18:32

the next part

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

so Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam is house

00:18:40 --> 00:19:09

had multiple phases, I am only going to cover one particular. So we're going to we're going to cover I think five phases. I'm not going to cover all the 11 phases, we can do maybe a separate lecture on that. Just wanted to give you some of the flavor and you know how things happen. So you know, around the time, you know at the 10 TAITRA Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam around 11th century or the 10th century, but it'll be we'll, uh, well, he he passes away.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:53

And when he passes away, I shout out the Allahu anha because Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he remembers that you know, prophets are buried wherever they die. So he remembered that hadith Surah Surah allah sallallahu sallam was buried in that corner. Now if you understand this from this perspective, then this was the area that was the bedroom of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam This is where Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam had placed his head on the chest of Aisha Radi Allahu anha. And this is where he passed away. And when he passed away, he was buried in the same location that where he was, so this was the place where I shadowed the Allahu anha you know, Rasulullah was placed and then there was a

00:19:53 --> 00:19:55

basically a, like a,

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

a curtain that was made of homage that was made of some

00:20:00 --> 00:20:07

sort of, of cloth at that time that was placed between the remaining house of Aisha Radi Allahu anha.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:52

And the cover of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the third phase the third phase of the house third phase of the house was Omar even macabre, the Allahu Allah and he came and if you notice in the first phase we had that Saphan nothing. He made full Lebbon houses so he made he fortified the backyard for our Aisha Radi Allahu anha. And basically Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and was also placed next to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then this became the house in which I showed up the Allahu Anhu lived. Now what is really interesting is, even during that time, I showed up the Allahu Ana simply move with that curtain and this curtain remained, and whenever somebody

00:20:52 --> 00:20:58

would want to come and say salaam to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, anti Abu Bakr, you know and make dua for Maduro for them.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:11

Then they would ask permission from Aisha Radi Allahu anha, she would step out in the courtyard and people would come and this curtain you know, they would be able to get in inside. Then what happens next is

00:21:12 --> 00:21:13

in the fourth phase,

00:21:14 --> 00:21:50

this is this is something so painful and so like surreal when I came across it right when during my research, so Amada, the Allahu Anh passes away, and he says to, you know, that when I passed away, take my Janessa and go place it in the house of fire in front of the house of eyeshadow, the Allahu anha. If she chooses to bury me with a burqa, and also with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Abu Bakr, then that's great. If he she refuses, and she doesn't open the door and take my janazah and bury me in the thief.

00:21:51 --> 00:22:04

So what happened here is a boubakeur was permitted, I started the Allahu Ana give him permission, and he was buried. But notice how all once he was buried,

00:22:05 --> 00:22:47

there was a wall that was made, and there used to be a small door over here. And the aroma they have mentioned that, you know, the first two people that passed away and they were in the house of eyeshadow, the Allahu anha in her grave, one was her own husband and the other was the father. They were both Muharram they, you know, they, she didn't have to do any hijab from her from them. But then as soon as there Omar Abdullah who came even though he was in his grave, she requested that that wall be placed, right because there's somebody else who's not a Muslim to me in the house. So this is the respect that the Oh lemme sorry, this is the respect that the Sahaba had. And in

00:22:47 --> 00:23:24

specific Aisha Radi Allahu anha she had for the command of you know, separation of Muharram today you and I see this you know, like it's just very relaxed environment you have brothers and sisters, mashallah we're going to Tim Hortons drive through together in a car, Masha, Allah, you know, we're brothers and sisters, we were all volunteering for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, like this culture didn't exist, like honoring the Command of Allah subhanaw taala. And staying away from the Muharram and just exposing yourself to a Muharram. And protecting yourself from somebody who you're not supposed to expose yourself to the Sahaba yard and the polymer of the past. And so how the out

00:23:24 --> 00:23:40

of the past and how the amount of the past, they took that very, very, very seriously, to an extent that even when somebody has passed away, and they're in a grave, three requests to place that wall, what is going to be even shocking for everybody here

00:23:42 --> 00:24:35

is look at the distance afterwards. She remains in a house that is five meters roughly long, and that is less than a meter wide. Do you understand that? Like if I was to stand here, and you know, extend my hands, it's more than a meter. So she lived in that small corridor, which today when somebody has to be punished, they put them in solitary confinement in small cells. She remained in that. And she became the source of spreading so much knowledge where people would enter her house, and they would sit outside in the courtyard and she would sit behind the door in her house and she would be teaching Hadith to all the Sahabas and the tambourine and think about it for a second that

00:24:35 --> 00:24:41

she remained in that small corridor for so many years.

00:24:43 --> 00:25:00

You and I if were placed in a small place like that for so many years, what is going to like if you're just you know, people have to quarantine themselves now for 14 days in a room that they have all the amenities the room that is the size of the house of Aisha

00:25:00 --> 00:25:10

About the Allahu I know that in that room, your quarantine and people are losing their and then everyone's talking about mental health and all of this right?

00:25:11 --> 00:25:32

What happened to her mental health? Right because they were not attached to this world, their hearts were never attached to this dunya their hearts were attached. And they longed to go back to Allah subhana wa Tada. This was just a passing by state for them just transient, I'm just going to pass, pause and move on.

00:25:34 --> 00:26:04

We ask Allah subhanaw taala that, you know, he gives us the true sight and vision to be able to live our lives with vasila with open hearts and hearts that actually truly see the true cause of us serving Allah subhanaw taala and living life where we're able to see ill health as healthy and as volatile as volatile. And we're able to make the right decisions for ourselves and for our families, insha Allah and for our homes, then the next phase is where that house was broken down.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:54

And then something was built. So these are the similar stones that were used in kava, those stones were found. And then you know, what happened is they came in, they built this scavo type structure around the graves of all the sahabas. This did not include the courtyard. I mean, there's other alterations, I'm not going to get into that. But just for the for this sake today, that physical Levin's structure was then fortified, and it was made six and a half meters long. So you see over here, it was made six and a half meters long, it was around 5.73 meters wide, longer here, and other 5.73 meters. On this side, the length of the wall was almost 73, the width of those blocks were 73

00:26:54 --> 00:27:00

centimeters, almost, you know, three quarters of a meter. So it's a really thick wall to penetrate.

00:27:02 --> 00:27:12

And then, you know, they had this small box in there, which has some remains of Prophet sallallahu to send them which they took out from that and they placed in that box that box is still there till today.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:52

As I mentioned, we're not going to get into further details of the house and how the role of Prophet salallahu Salam was formulated, we can maybe arrange a completely separate discussion on that. That's not the purpose of our of our topic for today. But in any case, I wanted to give you some different aerial views. So then once it was covered, this is how it looks like from inside you have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Abu Bakr radi, Allahu, and over here, and then you have OH MY GOD, ALLAH one, this was the corridor, if you remember the corridor, the you know, that small place that I shall reveal the one I used to live. Notice how the structure is open like that. So it

00:27:52 --> 00:28:04

is like you know, less, you know, it is less wide in one end, and it is much wider on the other in the front. And then what happened is they actually decided to cover it up with some wooden roof. So they put some wooden

00:28:05 --> 00:28:17

planks and they covered it up this time, it was not through Saphan they nailed it down. And this is how the structure is obviously then structure evolved, and they created a dome on it and stuff. But again, we're not going into that discussion today.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:58

So, next part, so as I mentioned already, we had over 11 different expansions to the role of Nabi SallAllahu Sallam till you get to the stick that we have today. And we can have that discussion. Now coming back to the entrance. Remember, we talked about the story of his mind Ali Salam and Abraham Ali Salam and we said when he came, he says, quote, you lay your heart out, but above it, change the entrance of your house. So today, our discussion goes back to the entrance and we will we'll pick up our discussion and finish that. So the question that I have for everyone over here, before I answer this, what do you think an entrance should entail? What do entrances entail? So if I was to say, the

00:28:58 --> 00:29:06

entrance of your house, what do you think an entrance entail? If I was to ask this question to some of you over here

00:29:16 --> 00:29:18

Alright, let's see some answers.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:24

Are you guys able to hear me?

00:29:26 --> 00:29:27

Are you not able to hear me?

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

Okay, I see. I mean, other than I mean, I haven't seen any. So all the people that are here, please, if you can do I'm just gonna check if you guys have anything here. Nope. Nothing here. places to put your shoes. Yes. Our entrances nowadays are cluttered with shoes. If you live in Canada, they're filled with jackets. And those of you that are, you know, managing the warehouses. Most of the time you're, you know, you know, the wives are always having these discussions.

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


00:30:02 --> 00:30:11

you know which is that oh, can you please put your jacket on spot or can you make sure that trees shoes are in the right location? So we have

00:30:13 --> 00:30:23

we are having that entrances should entail yeah they should be clean and organized right? So if I enter a house and I see clutter and I see mess

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

that is an indication

00:30:28 --> 00:30:46

to an individual that this house is in chaos and an overall their matters are in in a really bad condition. Right They usually have doorbells usually have doorbells. Have you ever heard the sentence you know?

00:30:47 --> 00:31:15

Grand entrances so if I was to ask you what's a grand entrance like coat hangers and chairs? Yes, so many out coat hangers and chairs are a few things that we have to So what's a grand entrance? Who can see that? Tell me what a grand entrance look like. So if I was to say that particular house had a grand entrance, okay, a particular house massive mashallah grand entrance? What would that entail? Like if I was to ask you that

00:31:20 --> 00:31:55

maybe spacious, yes. Spacious, so you would say Masha Allah, it's really spacious. It's really big. It's humongous. It's large. Right? And it's a grand get hundreds it's has some sort of gold, red carpet a welcome sign Exactly. All of these things, right? A person who invites you with gifts, yes, you enter and you have perfume, you have all of these things, right? Now. Do you know the formula that Rasulullah Salallahu it he will sell them gave to make your houses and your entrances grand.

00:31:56 --> 00:32:00

Right? Let's look at that what the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tell us

00:32:01 --> 00:32:14

about the banana or the Allah one. He comes to Rasulullah Salallahu Salam and he says, go to your rasool Allah manager at how do I find salvation? What is salvation? He is questioning what salvation

00:32:16 --> 00:33:06

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam tells him and see Cali Cali Sanuk II Control your tongue safeguard your tongue well yes sack they took a while yes sir. Well yes sir curvey took while yes aka but he took your house is going to be suffice for you? What the key Hala healthy attic and cry upon your mistakes, the Allameh they have said that the first to the like, so what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did is he placed the result in the middle of so he sandwiched it. He said two things you need to do result is right in the middle and I've actually highlighted that in orange, right? Every single one of us, you meet all of us. We would want our houses to be spacious for us. We would not

00:33:06 --> 00:33:09

want our entrance this entrances to be spacious.

00:33:10 --> 00:33:29

But Rasul Allah says, if you want your houses to be spacious, if your want your house has to be very spacious. It also relies not talking about physicality. He's not worried about the physical space of your house. He's worried about the spiritual space. He's worried about the emotional state he's worried about.

00:33:30 --> 00:33:34

Check my volume. Are you guys not able to hear me?

00:33:36 --> 00:33:45

I'm not able to hear who's not able to hear. Can we get a quick check? soundcheck over here from people. Some people are saying they're not able to hear

00:33:46 --> 00:33:49

or sister say that is saying that she's not able to hear

00:33:52 --> 00:34:30

Alhamdulillah excellent. We can hear excellent, excellent, excellent. Masha, Allah BarakAllahu li calm. All right. So Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he is not worried about your physical structure he's not worried about. For him a grand entrance is an entrance that fills like so when you walk in. You feel like I just don't want to leave this house. I don't want to even ever think about leaving this house because it's so like hospitable and so warm. But what's there? What are the foundational blocks for us to be able to build a grand house? Here's

00:34:32 --> 00:34:36

here's the formula that sort of like gives us right, every single one of us

00:34:37 --> 00:34:59

house, our houses, you know, we have needs and our house it fulfills that need. Right? So our house fulfills our emotional needs, right? We may come from outside and we're all riled up and we come home and we find familiarity and our emotions are calm. We might be stressed and we find

00:35:00 --> 00:35:42

peace and tranquility, we find, you know, sometimes the smell of your bedroom, sometimes the smell of your house, things familiarity, things that you're, you know, accustomed to. So it calms your emotion down, you feel comforted because you are in your house in your emotional storm that you're going through will be taken care of. It's also a space where a lot of us find ourselves spiritually getting active, right, so we were having our own private moments of spirituality, you and I are sitting and having our moments of personal spiritual growth. So you know, nobody knows about it, it's in the middle of the night or it's you know, right after Isha, whenever Allah gives you to fit,

00:35:42 --> 00:35:57

and we ask Allah that He gives you and me and every single one of us still fit that we use our houses for our spiritual needs. And we fulfill those spiritual, private moments, you know, personal spirituality, we connect with Allah subhanaw taala with that.

00:35:58 --> 00:36:16

Then the second is the third element is intellectual growth nowadays, you are sitting maybe on your computer you're working, you are learning information, your children are learning information, you will might have libraries, you might have other things that you're doing, all of those needs are being fulfilled by this house.

00:36:18 --> 00:36:18


00:36:20 --> 00:36:36

this is the the meaning of these are the different meanings that the olema they have said well, yes. By took, that your house shall suffice you or it shouldn't be expanded for you. Well, yes, sack by took that your house will

00:36:37 --> 00:36:53

desperately say there aren't well, yes, well, yes, Ark by took. I'm just messing up the thing. So first foundation for us to be able to fulfill the needs that you and I have for our house.

00:36:54 --> 00:37:09

The first advice that Rasul Allah gives us is you and I need to control our tongues. So I dub dedicates a flock related to house related to speaking, related to screaming,

00:37:10 --> 00:37:36

happens a lot, really related to how you not get angry, you know, happens a lot related to how you not get disturbed by your children's constant repetitive questioning happens a lot. And a lot of this has to do with us and securely calisthenic that we control our tongue.

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

Next one,

00:37:40 --> 00:38:07

we cry on our mistakes, none of us a feeling of remorse. So when we are going to be living with people in our houses, when we are going to be living with an individual for an extended period of time, you are going to have clashes you are going to have confrontations you are going to have these moments which are not going to be very favorable sometimes or not even sometimes comfortable.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:56

You cry on your mistakes. What does that mean? Like we all are going to make mistakes. And we all are going to take a position in our lives in which we are going to say I'm not at fault that person or you are at fault or she is at fault or he's at fault, but not me. I ain't at fault. It's not my fault. I am not the one to be blamed. And when that happens, and when we realize that we've made a mistake, we become remorseful and more so we ask Allah to fix our states and we cry upon our mistakes, mistakes that you and I do in a court of Allah subhanaw taala mistakes that you and I do and regrets that you and I may have in reference to our health towards our parents, our health

00:38:56 --> 00:39:27

towards our children, our health towards our wives, and none of you none of us any one of you, any one of us, all of us we are going to have imperfections, you are going to be imperfect you are going to have deficiencies. That's why you know Arizona law does not say try to be perfect in your house. Is it cry on your mistakes because the mistake is an inevitable reality. Right. What you what you do control is once you have made the mistake,

00:39:28 --> 00:39:55

you rectify your state with that individual that is in your control. What is not in your control is try your best to stay away from a mistake but you are going to falter you are going to fall you are going to tumble you are going to stumble, right it is going to happen, right you are going to eventually given something's going to happen you are going to make a mistake, but when you do make that mistake you'll recover.

00:39:58 --> 00:40:00

Number two second thing that an

00:40:00 --> 00:40:07

entrance, spacious entrance entails is seeking a pious spouse. Because if you have

00:40:09 --> 00:40:53

a house that you enter, and you don't look forward to meeting your spouse, that's not a spacious house. And that is why Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, you know, further therapy, that Dean, Teddy batea. Doc, go and look and seek for the one that has Dean, right from your wives. And the same goes for the husband for the for the sisters for their husband, daddy, but yeah, Doc, that, you know, you're, you would have been enough your hands would flourish, right? This is what we're looking for in a spouse. Now, does that mean that you know, you seek a pious spouse and she's going to be free of defects? No. But does that mean that all of a sudden you're going to be have

00:40:53 --> 00:41:18

connections and you're going to be like, all fine and dandy and no, that means that you have slayed the foundation for you to be able to build an entrance, you've laid the foundation so that when people enter your house, when you enter your house, you're going to find the spacious nests in your house. You know, I had a beautiful experience in Kenya, where, you know, I,

00:41:19 --> 00:41:29

my flight landed, but when it landed, I missed out my connection flight. When I missed out the connection flight, what really interesting thing happened was at that time

00:41:31 --> 00:41:56

we ended up doing some tour in Addis Ababa. And when we were doing that tour, what was really interesting in that time was we ended up going to a house of a really like a house that was made almost like the house of Prophet sallallahu Sallam it was made of those Levin's it didn't have a proper roof, The roof was made of some sort of tree material. And there was a lady that was

00:41:57 --> 00:42:42

cooking this bread made out of maize, corn flour, and something related to that. And I still have those pictures, where if you weren't to take a look at the picture of that girl that was there some teenager, you're gonna see that this person's got no worries, like, you know, they were so hospitable. And their house was literally no exaggerations, maybe two and a half, three meters wide, and maybe, you know, three to four meters, maybe not even three, I think less than three meters, you know, three by three, right, such a tight space. And she had her fire burning oven within that house. So she had a small opening, and she had a fire burning underneath. And I was like,

00:42:42 --> 00:43:21

subhanAllah, how are they surviving in this, but more importantly, they were so happy and contented. They had no furniture, but they were so happy and contented that, right? So having a spacious house entails that you have a spouse that you look forward to when you come back to your house. Now, what are some of the intentions that you and I need to have to build a prophetic home? That's very important for us. So if I was to say that, you know, what, in order for you to have a grand entrance, what are some of the intentions that you need to have as a person to build a prophetic home?

00:43:23 --> 00:43:27

Now, this information I've taken from shift from

00:43:30 --> 00:44:02

a campaign that runs in Jordan every year, it is called revere Elmo had been in order during the month of February. Well, the people who love Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, during that month, you know, Robbie, had been the spring of the lovers. And then it is also referring to the rugby world, a world at that moment. You know, they have a campaign and one of their years they did a campaign where they said, How about we communicate with all the scholars around the world

00:44:03 --> 00:44:25

and collect all the intentions that we need to have as individuals to make sure that our houses are built on intentions that Rasul Allah salAllahu, Alaihe, Salam had, or the owner of today say that are important intentions for us to have in our houses. They had a list. I'm just presenting a very few from that.

00:44:27 --> 00:44:59

So our houses need to be built on intentions. And those aren't new yet, right? And yeah, these are intentions. If everybody in the house is clear on these, then you know, our journey in the house becomes a lot more easier. So number one, we have to focus on turning our house into a role model house. So everybody is trying so you figure out what's the ambition that you're trying to reach. And obviously our ambition is that we want to be like Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, but if you look at it today, people have various

00:45:00 --> 00:45:46

ambition somebody wants to turn their house into a minimalistic house. So they're going to this this whole trend of minimalism. Some people want to turn this house their houses into extravagant whatever and they want to turn it into a role model most decorated house right, different intentions. But the idea is, you and I are aiming to turn our houses into the house of Allah subhanaw taala not House of Allah. So we're trying to turn our houses into as close as possible to the prophetic house. So, intention wise, our goal is that we want to have the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam embedded in our houses and it becomes a role model house for people to come. So

00:45:46 --> 00:46:01

when they enter they see Masha Allah everywhere they see reflections or reminders related and behaviors that emanate the sunnah of Prophet sallallahu sallam. Next, we talked about it in our first session or

00:46:03 --> 00:46:52

third session, maybe the last session was which was watch I will we will talk on Qiblah turn your houses into Qibla and we talked about multiple meanings of the word Qibla that your houses should become a. So the word tabula entails, they should be clean, they should be spiritual, they should be what people so if you are in, in a particular neighborhood, everybody should look up to you, everybody should come to you, they should find that you are the source of freeing a lot of their pains, then it should be filled with muhabba should be filled with love our houses, our intention should be that the rule of law is going to be love in our houses. And then time and again you find

00:46:52 --> 00:47:36

stories of eyeshadow the Allahu Allah and how you started fighting stories of Rasulullah sallallahu you send them with ohms you know it's sold out at the Allahu anha with Sofia Radi Allahu anha stories upon stories upon stories that you're going to find that Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam ensured that love was the rule of law in the house. Right? Everything above love, right? Love is going to be transcending over everything. So in behaviors in which sometimes I shut up the Allahu anha. She comes in front of the guests of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, she takes a platter shatters the platter in front of Rasul Allah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:47:36 --> 00:47:45

kindly turns to the Sahaba and says a lot more calm. Right? Your mother became jealous. Right? You had.

00:47:46 --> 00:48:09

So download the Allahu Ana she was just seemed she was, you know, quite heavy. She was tall. She had kids prior kids before, you know, from her previous marriage Rasulullah sallallahu. And then because of that, she was absolutely yeah, like she had very strong emotions, and I sort of last a lot longer to sell them, never used her, her her sensitivity, her emotional.

00:48:12 --> 00:48:26

edginess against her. Right? She never even you never see any heavy saying you know and as for so that you know what she's always like this are the Allahu anha. Then the next part that you and I need to have and instill in our houses is

00:48:27 --> 00:48:28

their arm.

00:48:29 --> 00:49:21

Their arm respect, right now. So the law sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tolerated everything in his house. He tolerated everything. But you have incidents where anybody crossed a line of respect. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not tolerate that. Right? So it was an alarm. And it's still rocky that it was mutual respect, right MOSHTARAK. It is communal, it's in every single person, you crossed the lines of respect. And our intention is that everybody in the house is going to respect one another. Our intention is that we're going to spread love, the rule of the law is Love is going to overtake everything. And our intention is that we're going to turn our houses into

00:49:21 --> 00:49:54

a Qibla everybody is going to look up to it, it is going to be a role model house for Rasulullah sorcerer, but it's also going to be a tabular like a mosque, it is going to be clean it is going to be be representable it is going to be a place where people will find solace, it is going to be a place where people will find spiritual upliftment and these are some of the many many intentions that are Lama had gathered, and I thought this would be really interesting for us to have those intentions laid out so that each one of us can, you know, take this responsibility

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

and, and go back and review ourselves. If you want to take a screenshot

00:50:00 --> 00:50:36

You may as well do that right now. Because this is something you know the summary of what we talked about today in sha Allah. With that. These are the slides that I'm going to cover today and then Inshallah, hopefully next week, we get into the living room and the bedroom of Nabi. SallAllahu. wasallam. And then from there, we get into the wardrobe. So we you know, and as we get into the wardrobe, like, you know, it's not just about the wardrobe or the closet of Nabi SallAllahu. It has said, and we will also be talking about the Shana and so what did he wear? How was this clothed? Like, what type of different clothes that you wear, and so we get a perspective of that. Similarly,

00:50:36 --> 00:50:53

when we talk about the kitchen or the atonement, or the food of Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, we'll get into all of that. And if you guys have any questions related to what we have covered, I would definitely ask every single one of you to please go ahead. And more importantly, please do share these videos with

00:50:54 --> 00:50:59

your friends and family because it's fresh content, but more importantly, you know, we all can

00:51:00 --> 00:51:01

we all can

00:51:03 --> 00:51:06

we all are in need of a little spark.

00:51:07 --> 00:51:34

And a rekindle meant when it comes to our love for Nabi SallAllahu sallam. So that's the least that you could do with your friends and family, that if you benefited from this, in any case, in any way than you ask, you know, then we ask Allah subhanaw taala that, you know, he accepts it from us. And then if you have benefited and you do share that message with others so that you know other people can be uplifted and connected in sha Allah to the Sonoff Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa salam. Now.

00:51:37 --> 00:51:45

If there's any more questions, I will take those questions. And if there are no questions, and I will hold Look at that.

00:51:48 --> 00:52:01

When kids don't do their homework, yes. Hey, I can actually show these comments. I did not know that. Oh, look at that. All right. Next week, we will start showing your comments. And then your name also shows up.

00:52:04 --> 00:52:49

On so cool. Okay, I just discovered a really interesting thing. Anyhow, if you guys don't have any questions, and I am going to end this live feed barnacle, I'm just going to give it 30 seconds because there is a delay, I know that there is a delay in q&a or there is a delay from people. So when the type of questions are you know, by the time I get the questions, oh, this is so cool. As that is going to be fun. Okay. It looks like there may not be any questions, then. In that case, I shall seek your permission to leave and I will see you all in sha Allah Jota Allah next week at the same time, eight oh, sorry. 730. Eastern Time, Eastern Standard Time. Does Aquaman Lehi BarakAllahu

00:52:49 --> 00:53:03

li comb, may Allah subhanho wa taala? Oh, there's a question. Just when I say just like that located about a lofi. So the question is, how do we create homes like this? When if the husband wife is making it difficult?

00:53:05 --> 00:53:11

How do we create homes like this when if the husband slash wife is making it difficult? Okay.

00:53:12 --> 00:53:54

This is an image from Ahmed photo op. Mashallah, this is Mowlana argument. He is I hope it is the same one that I'm talking about. Interesting question. I think the question, the question you asked is, How do you create a home? So now Now, the question where he's asking the question is basically that we've already established the house. And we did not do the steps right from the beginning. So where do we go from here? Right? Like, do we just dismantle the house and go and build another house? No, that's not the idea. But the most essential element of There we go, Eric, go, I was gonna say this.

00:53:56 --> 00:54:07

First, if you're going to require any change, right, any change, you have to remember this comment, you have to remember this, it is called ADD.

00:54:08 --> 00:54:12

Car. I'm gonna write this up over here for people.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:59

Eight, it's called add car. It's not called a car, not the car, it is called add cart. So add car basically means awareness. So the more awareness you create amongst the amongst the family about the need, why we need to do this, why is it important? How is it harming us? How is it going to benefit us? You create awareness, enough awareness created leads to people starting to have desires, okay? How do you do all these companies, they spend millions and millions and millions of dollars on these marketing campaigns and ads, because they want to create this awareness about their product so you have a desire. So once you get a desire

00:55:00 --> 00:55:45

Once you have enough awareness, you're going to have desire. Now, once you're going to have desire, that person is ready to seek knowledge. The problem that happens most of the time when parents send their kids to Sunday school or Saturday school is the child has no awareness of why he's learning this he has absolutely no desire. And we are feeding the children with our with knowledge. And we're hoping that the knowledge is going to create a desire and awareness about the dean, it doesn't work like that, right? It works opposite the child must be interested, he must be sold the idea of why he needs to learn to slam, right? Likewise, your husband, your wife must be sold through awareness

00:55:45 --> 00:56:15

through whichever ways of awareness you have that you are creating some form of awareness for them, then your that awareness is going to lead to a desire. And that desire is going to lead to people having knowledge information, right? So now I have desire, I want to know a little bit more about it. Where do I learn about Rasul Allah? Where do I learn about the Sierra Prophet sallallahu sallam, so that's gonna lead you to have desire. So, knowledge, okay. And then when the person has knowledge that is coupled with awareness and desire, then the net result is the person is going to have

00:56:17 --> 00:56:51

action, you are going to act upon what you have learned, right, you're going to be like, oh, man, we need to change, we need to create this awareness in ourselves, I need to change myself, I'm going to change, I'm going to be a different person, right, and I'm going to have, you know, whatever. So the person starts taking a genuine role when it comes to changing himself to, to taking actions that will eventually lead that individual to having a better, you know,

00:56:52 --> 00:57:07

you know, actions that will lead him to implement the knowledge he has, which is coupled by the desire and action which is coupled by the awareness and the desire he has. Now, once you've done that, you understand that

00:57:08 --> 00:57:09

a person,

00:57:10 --> 00:57:59

you your awareness can go down, your desire can go down, your knowledge can go down, or action can go down, all of these things can be connected, and they can impact you. So if that happens, ADKAR the last part is reinforcement. Right? So we all need Allah subhanaw taala says for the care in Nasik rotten thoroughly meaning that remember, for that kid remind for inadequate unfoldment meaning that zikr or remembrance benefits the believers, right, I believe, I have that knowledge, I believe in it, I've got the awareness I've got the desire to have the belief I am I have actions, but I also have my enough's and I also have shaped on working towards depleting my knowledge and, you know,

00:57:59 --> 00:58:26

diminishing the effects of my actions and reducing my desires and putting me into other getting the awareness on other things. So my other desires are fulfilled, and then I started taking action related to things that are not appropriate. So I hope that answers your question. That is basically a formula that companies use in corporations, when they have to

00:58:27 --> 00:58:40

bring about some massive change, right? If they have to bring about some massive change, they have to start creating awareness. And then once they create awareness, that awareness leads to desire and then that desire leads to knowledge. Okay.

00:58:41 --> 00:59:05

I hope that answered your question. Really good question. BarakAllahu fique SHAMET and or Molana Ahmed Baraka long fique and I hope that Allah subhanaw taala grants all of you bless it be blessed Sunday tomorrow morning, and then I will see you all in sha Allah Jota Isla at next ethnic Saturday inshallah maybe another

00:59:06 --> 00:59:14

three sessions hopefully, or four and we will be able to end this course inshallah Baraka la vie come a Santa Monica rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh wabarakatuh.
