Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to the second episode of social fixed fencing. This is your brother Muhammad Salim Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was sent down so we can be inspired in our lives and we can fix our social problems based on his life and his example. One of these days that I sort of lost I've allowed to sell them he is walking and he is going to the town of Oba right where the mustard Koba is today, outskirts of Medina. And as he's walking he finds this young child who's trying to imitate Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and as Rasul Allah is walking, he puts his foot right where does Allah has placed His footsteps and he's trying to imitate the sort of allah
sallallahu sallam. So he turns around he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says mad at us now what are you doing? He says, ya rasool Allah, Allah, Allah aka me, Allah makan pandemic. I am placing my foot exactly where you placed your foot. Then Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he turns around and he says to hit booni Do you love me? He says Now I'm Yasuda. workbook. Yes. I love you. He says, Would you follow me? Would you follow me? You said yes. Yeah rasool Allah I will follow you. Then he sort of like tells him go and kill your father. So the child he gets so zealous about this command? And he says yes, and he's about to leave and I called him back and he says, Come back, come back. We
have not been sent i e. Rasool Allah SallAllahu Sallam has not been sent. He says we have not been sent for Katya try to cut the ties of kinship. Indeed, we have been sent to mend the ties of kinship. And then this child he goes with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam to the town of Koba, whenever Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would visit the town of Oba this child is mentioned that he would accompany Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like a magnet. And he was a young, young child under the age of 10. And one of these days that also Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam he hears and he hears that this child is sick. And as soon as he hears about this child sickness,
Rasul, Allah leaves Medina and comes to Oba and visits him. And when he visits this young sahabi, he tells the parents when he's about to die, ie he's in his last moments, and it's still time, but he's going to die. So when he reaches the moment where he's about to die, call me. So I want to be next to him when he dies. Imagine this is also LaSalle Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He's got so many other things to do in his life, but he made time for this young boy.
Rasool Allah comes sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he leaves his house.
This young boy out of the love and care for Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he turns around to his parents and he says, I'm about to die. I don't want you to inform Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then the sahabi passes away.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, he hears about it. And he comes and he asks them, Did I not tell you that when he's about to die, you call me
and the parents they said yes, what Allah my Nana is this child who passed away, he told us not to call you he said, if you call Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then he is going to come from Medina because of his love for me and he's going to leave everything. And I'm really afraid that if I die in the middle of night, then Rasul Allah is going to come and you will have to cross the tribes of you know, the monastic goon, the hypocrites, as well as the Jewish tribes, and I'm afraid that they will hurt him. So I don't want Rasul Allah to be hurt because of my death. Hence, do not tell him about my death. And then I sort of lost I'll send him obviously, it was very sad at that
moment. What do we learn from what do we learn from the story?
Many things, but three points that I want to take away. Point number one,
young children are very susceptible to art. Let me let me rephrase that. Young children are very impressionable. Notice how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he says, You love me? He says, yes. Are you going to follow me? He says yes. And he says, Go and kill your father. And he was ready to do that. And unfortunately, many of the people today in most in the name of Islam, they use this this weakness of young children, the adolescents and the teenagers, they use this weakness, and they exploit it and they make them do all these vicious acts in the name of Islam.
which Islam has no room for at all in our religion. So when you're at home when you're stuck, remember that you as a father, you as a mother, you as an adult, the children around you are making an impression of everything you're doing. And they will follow you in every steps. So watch your actions. So you want these children to learn things from you, that you're proud of, not things that you're not proud of. Number two, Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has so many other important things and matters to take care of. But he was able to find time for this young boy.
And he allowed himself the freedom in their his schedule to accommodate his sickness. How many times do we find today that you know, Messiah or scholars, when they get busy or they get famous, when when they get known when they're there, they become like the magnet of the community, everybody is attracted towards them. But what do we find is
your you find it very hard to get reached them. And this is not from this enough sort of loss of lives. And so for those of for those Imams, those scholars that are now stuck, and you don't have access to those those community members, and you don't have that busy schedule that would you know, sometimes prevent you from making time for the community time for us to reflect all of us including myself, that how can we schedule How can we accommodate the whole community and their needs, and I myself, I'm guilty of that, but because sometimes you get so many
in you get inundated with emails and and messages and WhatsApp. And it's humanly not possible for us to do that. But we need to really work hard towards that. Third point that I wanted to walk away with is known as this the hobby and his love for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. This is something so powerful that this child, even in his deathbed, he is worried about the pain that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is going to feel and this is the level of love that you and I we need to adopt in our lives. I ask Allah subhanaw taala that He enables us to be the true lovers of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam a love that sparks within us this desire to follow his message and to follow his
path as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
