00:01:15--> 00:01:51

In the previous football that I gave in this message, we spoke about one of the most beautiful characteristics and aspects of the character of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that was the way in which he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would smile, the way he would love the way he would express his joy and his happiness. And today, in many ways, I want to discuss the opposite of that characteristic. Because as I mentioned in the last hotbar, Allah subhanahu wa taala speaks about wisdom in the Quran. And he says, subhana wa Taala, you Hekmatyar Mia Shah, woman, you

00:01:53--> 00:02:38

can see that Allah xojo gives wisdom to whomsoever He wills, and whosoever has been given wisdom has been given much good. And wisdom in Islam is to place everything in its proper place. So at the time of happiness, you are happy, you know, when there is the time to be angry, you know, when is the time to be sad, when to smile, when to love, when to do everything in its proper time and place. And so the characteristic that I want to speak about today, is a characteristic that many of us as Muslims have lost, we are unable to express this characteristic. When able to express this emotion. You rarely see it amongst the Muslims. But often when someone does express this emotion, people look

00:02:38--> 00:03:24

down and frown upon them. That emotion, that characteristic of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often employ, and he would often encourage us as His own much employee, and that is crying, the crying of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And what a beautiful characteristic that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though all of his sins have been forgiven, past, present and future, he would still cry, and he would cry openly, not alone. In the in his house, when no one could see him. He would often quite openly so that he could witness his crying and take him as an example. How often have we in our lives, let alone every day

00:03:24--> 00:04:07

in our whole lives, how often have required, how many times have required, and the crying that I'm talking about here today? Is not when you cry because your football team lost a match, or because they didn't win the season, or because you will reading a book which had a sad ending, or a TV program when someone dies, or anything like this. The crying that I am speaking about, is the crying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would cry out of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he would cry, because a loved one had died. He would cry, because out of fear for his own love for his nation. He would cry because of the Hellfire and his terrible punishment. This is the

00:04:07--> 00:04:50

crying that I am speaking about here today. How often do we cry in our prayers? How often do we cry when we recite the Quran? When was the last time you quiet out of the fear of Allah? And we have since like the mountaintops, since we're more vast than the oceans, yet we rarely cry. And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would encourage us to cry, and he would cry and his companions would cry. Or often you will even hear and see and witness that even when the Imam cries in his prayer, or someone cries in their prayer, that people will look at him and will say, Why does he cry so much in his prayer? He prolongs the prayer because he's crying so much, why doesn't he

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

just speed up? Why cry all the time, all he does is quite quite quiet. And we consider this an emotion especially amongst the men that we

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

can't have that we can't show. Crying is a sign of weakness so we can show it. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the most courageous man, the strongest of men, the best of men, the most perfect and his character would often cry sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is an attribute and a characteristic that Allah azzawajal encourages in the Quran. It is not just something which we find in the Sunnah. But Allah azza wa jal encourages it in the Quran. And he says about the believing slaves, the believing men and women, that from the attributes and the characteristics is that they cry, he says, Subhana Allah in Surah Surah.

00:05:41--> 00:06:27

pani akun was he to whom Kasha that they fall on their faces in frustration, crying out of the fear of Allah and it increases them in humility. This is the sincere type of claim, not that you cry because people are watching or looking, or because he makes you seem more pious, but it increases you in humility, it increases you in humbleness. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in Surah Maryam after mentioning the many stories of the prophets from Ibrahim and Moosa, and Elisa, and all of the different prophets that are mentioned with it. Within that surah. He concludes these stories by mentioning a common trait or common attribute that all of them possessed. were either too early him

00:06:27--> 00:07:15

Rockman harville, sujeto mukhiya, when the verses of man of Allah are recited upon them, they fall down in frustration claim, this was the attribute, this was the way they were. And now often we hear the Quran being recited how often we recite the Quran ourselves, how often we come to the prayer and hear the Imam reciting. When was the last time that you cried, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often cry. And so when when would he cry? Why would he cry, he would sell alone when he will send them first and foremost cry out of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with this claim, it's not just any emotion that you have, but crying from the fear of Allah crying,

00:07:15--> 00:07:55

because you have so many sins, crying, out of hope from the mercy of Allah. This is in itself very bad. It is worship, and a person is rewarded for it. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned concerning the day of judgment that day, when every single person will come, not wanting to know their own mother, their own father, their own brother, their own sister, their own wife, their own children, each person will be there worried about themselves. And that day when the sun will come so close to them, that it is only a mile from their heads, and its heat will be so immense, that the people will be drowning in their sweat. On that day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:07:55--> 00:08:25

wa sallam informed us about seven types of people, seven categories that will be afforded the shade of Allah on the day that there will be no other shade than his shade. So baktun you will know whom Allah yo ma La Villa La Villa, seven people will come in that day, and they will be given the shade of Allah, the shade of the throne of Allah on the day they will find no other shape, and form amongst those people. We're all Julian, the Corolla Holy Father,

00:08:26--> 00:09:12

a man who remembers a lot in seclusion alone, when no one can see him. He remembers his sins, he feels a law, and then he begins to shed tears. tears come from his eyes. how simple it is to cry. It doesn't take any money. It doesn't take any immense amount of energy, but it takes sincerity. And so when a person cries from the sincerity of Allah, when he has no other reason to do so, no one can see him. No one can witness him, no one can hear him, then Eliza will gel within shallow 14 shade on your piano. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, mentioning another virtue of this crying out of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which he said in the long run, he will send them

00:09:12--> 00:09:43

would often do himself to be a role model and an example for us. He said, Now you only do now or Julian Beckham in Russia. Tila had to do libera Fedora Fabiola, a man will not be touched by the fire, if he cries from the fear of Allah until noac returns to the other of the camp. Meaning that it is impossible that a man who cries or a woman who cries from the fear of Allah will ever be touched by the fire will ever be touched by the fire

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

until the milk returns to the other of the cow and that's impossible. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying to me and you, if you truly sincerely cry from the field of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the sins that we have committed.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

Then Allah azza wa jal will make the fire haram upon our bodies. May Allah azza wa jal cuantas that

00:10:07--> 00:10:49

the prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often cry, his companions would come to see him would come to meet and greet him, and they would find him in the state of praying. He would cry in his prayers. He would cry reciting the Quran, he would cry him in the Orion was being recited to him. He would cry something along when he was setting them up to live in Sheffield, radi Allahu anhu mentions that I came to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I found him crying in such a way that it was as if a boiling pot was about to have its lid taken off. When a pot of water is boiling, and you have a lid on top, and that lid is shaking, it makes a certain sound. And that

00:10:49--> 00:11:31

whistling sound was what he heard from the profit or loss on the loan where he will send them the profits in the long run, he will sell them would cry. When the Orion was being recited to him. He asked him to live in Miss rhodiola and one day to come and to recite the Quran to Him in His presence. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, how can I recite to you, and it was revealed to you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, I love to hear his recitation, so recite for me. So he was cited from Surah, Nisa, and he began to his sight and recite until he looked up and he saw that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shedding tears crying from the

00:11:31--> 00:12:14

recitation of Allah crying because he understood what Eliza Jen was saying. He was reflecting and pondering over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often cry when he remembered paradise and the fire and everything that I mentioned to you today. We hear it on a daily basis. How often do we recite the Quran? or hear it being recited? How often are we reminded of the fire and paradise? But how often does it bring tears to our eyes? Our hearts have become so hard that even if someone was to tell us about all of the torments and punishments of the fire, we consider it something which is normal. We just pass by like it's someone reading a newspaper

00:12:14--> 00:13:01

article, or someone telling us about the last holiday that they went on. We continue as if nothing has changed. It has no impact upon our hearts, the Prophet sallallahu when he will sell them in a hadith narrated by Rama rhodiola, who said, the turn of the meeting, agenda one now, do not forget that the great two things don't forget and don't neglect the great two things. The fire and paradise on Omar said I looked up at his face, and I could see that he was playing just from the mere mention of the fire and paradise. He didn't even have to go into the descriptions, but just mentioning the word fire and paradise, both tears to his eyes solomani He will send them and he said some alone, he

00:13:01--> 00:13:49

will send them in a very beautiful Hadith. Wonder applies to each and every single one of us here today about our legal agenda to one no film arakelyan Society was short. Indeed, both the Hellfire and the paradise were presented before me. I saw them. And I have never seen anything the likes of it ever before, either in terms of the goodness of Paradise, or in terms of the evil of the fire. One Oh turloughmore nama alum, la da de la Mola back at McAfee era, and if you knew that which I know, then you would love little and you would cry much. And a Sydney monocle of the alarm rang Luna rates. But after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this, I looked at the faces of the

00:13:49--> 00:14:10

companions around him. And I could see that they have never heard a more powerful statement. Nothing which was more shaded, which was more severe upon their hearts. And they all began to cry simultaneously. The whole of the companions, the whole congregation began to cry when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this to them.

00:14:11--> 00:14:52

Monks, the companions of your loved one who was sitting and they were sitting, remembering and reciting the Quran. And they came across the verse of Allah subhanho wa Taala and sort of nudge them towards the end of I mean, hasn't had ether, jawbone, what have Hakuna wallethub Khun are they amazed and I wonder why this recital that is given to them by this book which has been revealed to them and they laugh at it, but they do not cry? Because when a person will take on the emotion that should come from them is playing another laughter not mockery and just and joking. So Allah is saying they laugh at the Koran yet they don't quite. abou hooray rhodiola one who says I was sitting

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

with the companions and we began to cry after reciting this verse, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in his

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

house next to the masjid. And he heard us cry. So he came out and he began to cry with us. And when he started to cry, we only increased in our coin. So the long run He will send them, what are the long run, the prophet of Allah Subhan Allah while he will sell them, what often crime and making dua as a sign of humility and humbleness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. To show you need and poverty of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When was the last time that you quite new to Allah? We ask Allah for so much we want Him to forgive us and to give us gender. And we asked for everything and anything. Yet How many times have we shown our need and poverty to Allah simply by crying, crying to Allah when we

00:15:45--> 00:16:28

ask of him, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as is narrated, barely even Have you thought about your loved one, he says on the day of the night before, but there was not a single one of us except that he was asleep, resting in preparation for the battle. And I looked and saw the profit or loss on the lung while he was selling them. The only one from amongst the whole army, standing my admite in prayer, crying to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will not only cry in his doors, but she would cry in his prayers. When he's praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala, asking for forgiveness, he would cry, and he shall be alone when he

00:16:28--> 00:16:40

mentions for the Prophet sallallahu early He will send them once team to me at night. And he said, Oh, I shall leave me alone this night. Don't bother me, this might allow me to worship My Lord.

00:16:41--> 00:16:59

And so I shall reply the Messenger of Allah. I love that which you love. So do as you please. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to pray. And I shut up. He didn't sleep. But she watched him praying. And she says that I saw him standing in fire.

00:17:00--> 00:17:45

And he was standing reciting the Quran. And he began to cry until all of his cheeks were full of tears. And then he sat down, and he continued to pray. And he continued to cry until all of his beard was wet. And then he continued to play and continue to cry, until the earth around him was soiled with his tears wet from his playing, how much he must have played for the earth around him, the ground around him to be wet, for the tears to come down, and to actually make the ground wet. And his son Allahu Allah, He will send them was playing secluded, no one seen him along with his wife's on the lawani, he will sell them. And she says that he continued like this the whole night,

00:17:45--> 00:18:25

praying, crying until Bilal rhodiola, who came to call him to the fudger prayer. And he entered and he saw him crying like this, and he saw the ground around him wet. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, you cry like this, even though all of your sins have been forgiven, the past the present and the future, yet you still cry like this? And he replied, I felt I've done Shakira, should I not then be grateful and thankful servant of Allah subhanahu wa taala. That was the state of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were about me and you with all of our sins, all of the wrong that we do.

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

All the sins that we commit by day and by night,

00:18:31--> 00:19:15

and we can't shed a single tear from the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala we can't shed a single tear in our prayers reciting the Quran, making dua to Allah another single time. And the Prophet of Allah Subhan Allah Allah He will send them will be given the greatest substations on Yeoman. Yama can cry like this until the ground around him is what sort of the lonely he will sell them. He would quite some alone while he was selling them out of fear for his own money out of love for his own man, because he would know what will take place on your multi Yama from the trials and the punishments and how easy it may be for any one of us to enter the fire if we don't obey Allah and have Eman. Mr.

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

Lala, he will sell them once came out to his companions.

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

And there was a solar eclipse. The sun had been blocked out. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to pray. And he stood until the companion say that we never thought he would make record. And then he made record until we thought he would never stand up again. And then he stood until we thought he would never make such them. And then he made such the until we thought he will never come out of such them. And then after he finished, he began to cry. And he raised his hands to online he said, Oh Allah my mama, my mama, did you not promise me that you will not punish them so long as I am amongst them? Did you not promise me that you will not punish my mama so long as you

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

seek forgiveness from

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

You and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned to the people and said indeed this is from the signs of Allah. So seek forgiveness from him pray and recite the Quran during these times. How often when we hear of the calamities that strike around us all over the world, how often do we cry that Allah azzawajal has saved us, but Allah azza wa jal has showered us with this mercy that Allah subhanho wa Taala has shown forgiveness to us. What Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would cry, he would cry him and giving back to Allah, calling others to the way of Allah calling them to this religion because he wanted good for them. He wanted guidance for them. He would quiet this. And

00:20:43--> 00:21:24

an example of this is when he came to his uncle Abu Talib, and Abu Talib was not a Muslim. And the people of Croatia said to Abu Talib, take your nephew away from us. stop him from what he is preaching. Because if you don't stop him, then we will take matters into our own hands. So Abu Talib said to his nephew, the sun Allah Allah He will sell them stop what you are doing. Stop saying what you are saying or your people will come and they will attack you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to cry, thinking that his uncle had forsaken him saying that By Allah, if they were to place the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand, then I will not stop from that which

00:21:24--> 00:22:00

I am doing. I will continue to give Dawa I will continue to call to the way of Allah. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would cry, I don't look for his own another according people to this way of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And he wouldn't just cry from the fear of Allah, or in recitation of the Quran, or was making prayer or Dora. But she would cry when he would lose a loved one, or when he would remember a loved one. And this is something which most of us are not able to do as well. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once cried after the Battle of boredom. When

00:22:01--> 00:22:44

his son in law who was a non Muslim at the time, the husband of Xena he was captured as a prisoner of war. And so the orange came to give them ransom to run some out there people to take them back to Makkah. And Zainab, his own daughter sent about a bracelet or some type of jewelry, so that she could run some her husband. And when the profits on the long run, he will send them soldier jewelry, he recognized it. And he saw that it was the jewelry that his wife Khadija rhodiola one had gifted to her on the day of a marriage, and Khadija passed away. So it brought tears to his eyes. And he said to his companions, that if you allow me to do so, then I will set him free, and I will return

00:22:44--> 00:23:24

this position to her. Something which reminded him of his wife, who had passed many years ago, brought tears to his eyes, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often say when the companions would ask him or messenger of Allah, how can you cry at the death of someone, or when you hear some sad news about someone who has passed away? He would say Indeed, this is from the mercy that Allah has given to his servants. And another Hadith he said, Son Allah when he will send them that alarm. zoa gentle, will now hold us to account from the tears that we shed, or the grievances that we have in our heart the sadness that we have in our heart, but he would hold us to account

our profits on the long run He will send them would also cry when he would hear of the death of some of his companions, like on the day that he heard of the multiple deaths of jaffery been abused polyp, his cousin, Jose, they've been the Haida is adopted son, and I'm delighted murabaha, one of the early Muslims, he cried when they when all three of them were martyred in the bathroom. And it brought tears to his eyes on the lawn when he was sending them. And then he stood up and he went to the house of Java. And he said, bring to me the children of Java so that I can see them and he gathers them and he hugged them and he was crying. So that people said O Messenger of Allah, have

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

you heard some news of Java? And he said, Yes, indeed on this day he passed away.

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cried when his own children passed away, a book called hora de la luna rates, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat on the grave of his own daughter on local film before they buried her. And he was sitting on her grave crying, because she had passed away. So some of the companions were amazed that he would price on the loved one and he will send them as a prophet sallallahu He will send them cried, and he shed tears. And then he said to her, go down into the grave and bury her. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cried at the death of his son, Ibrahim, when he passed away, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the line Allah

00:25:42--> 00:26:29

tala in Nepal Belizean wanna Nepali Lama Europe una semana what Allah were indeed the Ayesha tears and the heart it grieves at a sudden, but we don't say except that which pleases our loan subhanho wa Taala. So my dear brothers and sisters, to cry is a part of our religion, to cry. It is a form of worship, to cry in your prayers to quiet and reciting the Quran. to cry when making dua, to cry when you're reminded about the hereafter to quiet when you are when you hear about paradise and the fire, it is from our religion, and it is from the character that a Muslim should possess. It is something which we need to do something which we need to make some effort in. Because most of us are unable to

00:26:29--> 00:27:13

cry. We are unable to cry when we hear the recitation of the Quran. And Allah azza wa jal mentions that those who don't cry when they hear the recitation of Allah, their hearts are harder than rocks, harder than rocks because even rocks tremble from the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and mountains going to just because of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala from that which will help us to cry from these ahaadeeth which I have mentioned to you from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that a person seclude themselves, when they are away from everyone else, from any eyes or any is for many witnesses, and they remember Allah subhana wa tada and they remember the sins that they have

00:27:13--> 00:27:55

committed, and the vast amount that they are. And you remember the punishment of the Fire. And what is waiting for you if you repent to Allah from the rewards of Paradise, and this will help you if you do it, often basis that Allah azzawajal will help you in sha Allah to be able to shed tears. And remember that the shedding tears from Allah will give you great will give you shade on the day of judgment on Yama, Yama in sha Allah from that which will assist you is that you ponder and reflect over the recitation of the Quran, but simply to just recite it, not simply to just look over the meanings and skim over them, but to actually ponder and reflect over the verses of Allah to stop and

00:27:55--> 00:28:36

to ponder and contemplate what Allah azza wa jal is telling us. This will bring tears to your eyes. From that which will bring tears to your eyes is that you hold yourself to account as Ramana de Lange who would say hold yourself to account today before Allah holds you to account tomorrow, and weigh your own actions today, before they wait for you tomorrow on human piano. This will bring tears to your eyes. And finally, remember that the Muslim is balanced in every single metric of his life. No Muslim goes to one extreme or the other. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will not just cry all the time to the extent that you will make him depressed or that it would make him not

00:28:36--> 00:29:16

not hoping the mercy of Allah. Naughty under the hand laughs so much and smile, that you will never be able to shed tears and he would never have the fear of Allah. He would balance between the two, to know when to cry, to know when to smile, to know when to laugh. It is from the beautiful characteristics that a Muslim needs to adopt that perfect to his bed perfect his or her character. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in my birth to Leo Tell me Mama tell him Allah.
