00:01:27--> 00:01:33

When we look at the lives of the companions of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam radi Allahu anhu mentioned.

00:01:34--> 00:02:15

One thing that stands out. One thing that is amazing concerning this whole group and body of people, is the way that each and every single day that a large soldier would bless them to have life, they would look for a way towards gender, they would look for opportunities, any opportunity that would come through the course of the day and in their path, that would bring them that one step closer to gender. They may well be just calling around the daily business, sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one occasion, or doing their daily chores. But if they saw that there was something that came up in front of them, that would bring them closer to gender, they would grab

00:02:15--> 00:02:57

that opportunity, they would take hold of that opportunity. And that's because this is the way in which the profits on a lower legal system, nurtured his companions are the Allahu anhu. This is the way that he taught them to think and the mindset that he told them to have. As we go through the course of our day, and you come across something a situation arises, an opportunity presents itself and you know, that it's something which is pleasing to a large religion, it is possibly a means and a path and a way to come closer to Jannah. The Companions would be people would grab that opportunity, they will take that opportunity. The profits on a lower limb was seldom told them to

00:02:57--> 00:03:36

think in this way. And what is collected no sorry, have you brought a ban on the throat, Musashi rhodiola one, the Hadith, over which the scholars of Hadith differed regarding its authenticity, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once traveling and he went and passed by a Bedouin man. And he stayed with a Bedouin man and he gave him some hospitality you welcomed him, he honored the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So as the prophets on the lower end, he was sillim was leaving, he said to the bedwin man, the bedwin, who lives in the desert, far from Medina, he said to him, that if you ever come to Medina come and I would like to repay your kindness, because of the

00:03:36--> 00:04:14

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, someone did a favor to him. He liked to repay that favor. He will do good towards those who show goodness towards him. So if you come to Medina, seek me out and I will give you something in return. After some time had passed, that man eventually came to Medina and he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mosque, he was sitting with his companions. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam welcomed him and honored him. And he said to him, asked me what you want, what do you need? The man being a simple man, a man who lives in the desert doesn't have much to own doesn't have much that he can, that he can possess. He said, O Messenger of

00:04:14--> 00:04:59

Allah, I want to come on that I can ride. And I want goats or sheep that I can use for myself and my family. The man is asking what he needs, is asking for the needs of himself and his family. He's looking at his situation and his dynamics, and he's making a request. The Prophet said to him Salalah while he was setting them are just dumb. And takuna Miss la juicy Benny is wrong. Are you unable to be like the elderly woman of Bani Israel in the companion said, O Messenger of Allah, and who was the elderly woman of Benny Seraphin. The Prophet sits on a low while he was sending them that when the Prophet of Allah Musa alayhis salaam, was leaving Egypt, running away from Pharaoh and

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

his army,

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

He wanted to go and see the grave of use of Valley center. But no one knew the location of the grave except for one elderly woman from Benny's surrounding. It had been knowledge that was passed down from generation to generation. century upon century, only one person knew that location. So the Prophet of Allah Mousavi sentiment to the elderly woman. And he said to her take me to the grave of Yusuf Ali he sent him but she refused. She said, No, I will only do so if you give me something in return. Because she understands that she has an opportunity. This is the point that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is making? Can you not be like the elderly woman of Benyus Robin, she

00:05:45--> 00:05:57

has an opportunity. I won't tell you until you give me something in return. He said, What do you want in return? She said an akuna McAfee's agenda that I should be your companion in general.

00:05:58--> 00:06:38

The ration says the Musashi sentimental shine embarrassed, because that's not something for him to give. He can't give Jenna he's not the one who chooses to goes into paradise, but allows that was revealed to him that give her what she has asked for. So he gave her what she asked for he said that Allah has granted you agenda with me. And then she told him the location of the grave. The profits on the low while he was Selim is telling us companions, and by extension, Nia knew, this is how we should think each and every single day we should remember, the old woman from Venezuela in that elderly lady didn't have anything left in this life didn't have anything that she wanted, but she

00:06:38--> 00:07:21

understood that there is an opportunity that presented itself. So she took hold of that opportunity. She wasn't shy, she wasn't embarrassed when it came to seeking out a loss reward and his gender. And that's how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught his companions. So we have multiple narrations across the center. Across the books of Hadith. When you see companions actively seeking that opportunity to get to gender when the opportunity would present itself, they would grab it by both hands in the heartbeat of a bouverie rhodiola uncollected and sooner necessarily, the Prophet told us on a low hourly he was still a member and Fazal Genie min shake him in a Shia if he Serbia

00:07:21--> 00:08:07

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

Abubakar Viola Wang said faqad, Abu Bakr, Allah,

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

Allah, Allah man above the Aurora for you, there are men who had those gates or messenger of Allah, they are for those specific people. The people have Salah, from the gate of Salah, the people of fasting from the Gita, region and so on. But is there anyone on that day your messenger of Allah that will be called to enter into Jenna from all of its gates? He saw an opportunity, he saw an opportunity is there anyone who will be called to enter into general for more of those gates or messenger of Allah? And the Prophet said to himself Allah while he was sending him Nam, what would you enter Konami home? Yes, and I hope that you will boubakeur will be from amongst those people.

00:09:08--> 00:09:51

That is the glad tidings, there is a promise from the Prophet son alone while he was cylinder Abubakar is where he is in gender. He saw his opportunity and he took the opportunity or the loved one in another generation Sahih Muslim on the photo to have the companion or a big blue carbon SME, that he said rhodiola one contribute to Magna Vu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for whom he will do he will have forgotten and he said that I used to spend the night serving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the short duration Sahih Muslim but another narrations. He goes into detail. He says and he was from the poor companions from bamboo suffer from the homeless companions who would

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

live and sleep in the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't know my home, didn't have money, didn't have a wife or children.

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

Didn't have any family. But his circumstances despite the difficulty, didn't stop him from seeking out opportunity for reward. Just as for many of us in this month of Ramadan, we're finding it difficult. We have families and we have jobs and we have chosen we have responsibilities. And on top of all of that, we have to find time for a brother in this month of Ramadan, difficult circumstances, but the most comforting of time and experiences, lack of sleep, no food, no drink, irritation, and so on. However, the companions wouldn't allow those things to deter them from the goal of seeking gender. He would spend the whole day europeo de la Juan, from the morning until the

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

evening serving the profits on the low while he was selling him. If he needed widow, he would go and he would bring his water. And if he needed his shoes, he would carry his shoes and he would bring them to him son a low and he will send them and that night when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go home to rest and sleep. He would stand outside of his door, just in case during the night, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has some need. In the narration. He says until I would even hear the prophets on the low while he was cinemas he is laying up on his bed, about to sleep making Vicar of Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah and then he would fall asleep.

00:11:18--> 00:12:02

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to acknowledge his favor, acknowledge his service, reward him for what he spent time in doing serving the prophets of Allah while he was sent them. So he said to him one day son asked, asked me what you need. Man is the man who is poor, doesn't have anything, doesn't have a family doesn't have a wife can ask the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam for many things, but he says in the long run eration I knew that whatever I asked for in this dunya would be temporary and fleeting. So I said O Messenger of Allah as Luca Murata. tefillah Jenna, I want your companionship in gender. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was surprised. In the

00:12:02--> 00:12:43

original Sahih Muslim he said to him our adeleke Do you want something else? Think again? You're a poor man. You don't have a house. You don't have a family. You can ask me for any of those things. In the long run eration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him over a beer, Did anyone ask you to say this, but the acid no messenger of Allah, but I thought long and hard and I knew that whatever I asked you from this dunya would be temporary and fleeting. So I wanted to ask you for something that would be lasting, something that would benefit me. So I want your companionship in gender. So the Prophet septum sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for me, Ireland FC kabaka ferratas sujood.

00:12:43--> 00:13:25

So then helped me by prostrating often, by praying, often, the companions if they see that opportunity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asking them, what do you want? They don't think short term. They don't they don't think about the short term gain. They don't look at today or tomorrow or next week or even next year. The companions are looking at eternity. They're looking at the hereafter. They're looking at what will benefit them in the next life the life for which there is no end. This is how the companions were, or the Allahumma Jemaine, then the hadith of herbivores rhodiola one clicked it and say hello Buhari, that our Prophet sets on Allahu alayhi wa sallam, yet

00:13:25--> 00:13:31

the whole agenda term in Amati ism Ratan he has a Bruna Alfa Ulu, whom you know,

00:13:32--> 00:14:16

from my oma they will enter into Gen nine to power dice a group that will number 70,000 they'll their faces will be illuminated like the full moon. In another generation. The Prophet said said a lot while he was still him concerning the 70,000 people that they will enter into Jenna without any accounting and without any punishment. Imagine to be from amongst those people that are no piano don't have to answer for any of their actions on how to account for any of their words or their deeds are judged by Allah subhana wa Tada. And there is no punishment for them, but they enter into gender. There's not a single person who hears that Hadith, except we think male, large soldier

00:14:16--> 00:15:00

makers from amongst those people, male law makers and our parents, our spouses, our children from those 70,000 no judgment, no accounting, no punishment for karma, or Akasha to be my son, sad rhodiola one. So when the companion or kashia heard this, he stood up, and he said, You're asuna La Jolla and the journeymen home. Messenger of Allah make Allah mix me from amongst those people. He saw an opportunity. There's other companions around. There's other people listening to the same narration, but he saw an opportunity so he stood up and he took hold of the opportunity. That's his ticket to gender or messenger of Allah May Allah mix me for a moment

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

Those people so the profits on a lower hourly he was selling made for him for karma Raja luminol ansara. So a man from dancer also stood up and he said, Yasser Allah, La Jolla journeymen home home messenger of Allah make dua for me as well, that Allah mix me from them, for clarity is salatu salam, salam, aka Akasha, but the Prophet septum sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Akasha beat you to it.

00:15:26--> 00:16:04

The companions were eager, when they would see an opportunity, they wouldn't let it go. as we're going through our day, there's so many opportunities that arise. So many things that take place. And if we were to only think in the terms of is this beneficial for me, not only now, but more importantly, lead to one on your mukaiyama if that's the way that we lived, and we thought and we went away, we went through our daily routine, we would look and take all of those opportunities to get closer to gender, and the hadith of enniscorthy laguan. collected in the Muslim world, remember that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah. I

00:16:04--> 00:16:38

have a neighbor, who has a date palm tree, and my wall is leaning on his deep palm tree. So I asked him to give me the date palm tree so that I can leave my wall standing upon it. This man was a poor man didn't have the money to rebuild his wall, didn't have anything to strengthen his walwyn. But the tree belonging to his neighbor is supporting this wall. So I asked him to give it to me, so that he doesn't chop it down or take it down. The Prophet said to him, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out he did not let me

00:16:39--> 00:17:00

give it to this man. And in return, you will have a tree in general. But the man refused, said no, it's my property. I don't want to give it to him. He's being offered by the profits on a low while he was selling them a tree in its place in general. And he said no. For us, this discussion was taking place there was a companion by the name of

00:17:02--> 00:17:47

rhodiola one. And the Buddha after this discussion had finished and taken place, he went to the man who owned the date palm tree, and he said to him, give it to me and in return, you can take my orchard of trees, take the whole orchard in some generations and he said that Apple Dada his orchard had 600 trees within it from the most prosperous gardens in the city of Medina. Give me the tree for my orchard. So the man gave it to him. Why wouldn't he give it to him, gave him the whole thing. In return for his garden. A Buddha came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said O Messenger of Allah, I sold my orchard for that tree. And now I give the tree to you to give it to

00:17:47--> 00:17:56

the man who came to you to ask for it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How many strong fruitful trees we're

00:17:57--> 00:18:40

having gentlemen. That was one tree for it. He gets one tree in general, a Buddha gave 600 how many strong fruitful trees with the hive in general. A Buddha that went to his garden, his orchard where his family and his children live. And he called he didn't even step inside the garden. He called his wife and he said I've sold the tree, gave it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in return for its like in general. And his wife said to him, Robbie, what an amazing transaction. When the companions would see the opportunities, they would grasp the opportunities on the 30th Rahim Allah tala from the famous illustrious students of Abdullah basadi laquan, Houma and what is collected in

00:18:40--> 00:18:46

San Buhari that he says that Abdullah basadi Allahu anhu has said to me one day, Allah

00:18:47--> 00:19:33

will Jenna Shall I not show you a woman from the people of gentlemen, before your eyes as you walk in you live in you see a woman from the people of gender? So I said yes, so we do our best. He said, how the Matata, soda? Attila Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have a palette. Yara surah la nuestra India Taka chef, for the Roma Holly. This abuse Indian woman that you see walking before you. She came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said O Messenger of Allah I'm I am overcome by convulsions and Finns have epilepsy. And when I have my fits in my convulsions, I exposed parts of my body because of that in public. So make dua for Allah for me. ask Allah to kill me. The

00:19:33--> 00:19:41

Prophet said to her salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the sabarmati volatile, volatile Jenna when she did the automa and

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

if you wish, be patient, and in return Allah will give to you Jenna. Now anyone here that's been seriously ill, or anyone here that knows someone who has been seriously ill knows how difficult that situation is. Not how difficult and painful it is even for you as a member.

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Have that family or a friend or a close friend, to witness what they're going through. But perhaps that is their ticket and their opportunity to gender, all of those gifts of gender are not the same. And all of these companions that I'm narrating to you didn't take the same action in the same path towards gender. But the opportunity that presented itself to them was unique to them, but they took hold of that opportunity. If you wish, you can be patient and you will have gender. And if you wish, I will make dua for you, and Allah will kill you. She said, O Messenger of Allah hospital, I will be patient, but as a law that he doesn't expose me when I go through my convulsions and fits. So the

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made there are four

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

opportunities that arise, things that happen, and you're given a choice. And there is always a choice that will bring you closer to a larger religion bring you closer to the gates of Jannah, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were people who would recognize those opportunities, they would see them all around them each and every single day. And when they would see those opportunities, they would grasp those opportunities. And sometimes those opportunities don't come along willingly. Sometimes it's something that you just find yourself in that situation. Sometimes it's something which you don't plan on, like many of us in this month of Ramadan. We

00:21:20--> 00:22:00

didn't plan anything in this month of Ramadan manna from those people who did long lists and objectives and goals and daily routines. Ramadan came upon us as it comes upon us each and every single year. But now that Ramadan is here, it is an opportunity. Even for those of us that didn't really plan for those of us that still don't have a game plan for those of us who go through each and every single day in the mundane routine, and we don't really know what it is that we're focusing on. So one action. That's one thing, that one deed that you do that may be your ticket to Jenna, don't lose and squander that opportunity. In the habit of halifa rhodiola one. He said that in the

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

Battle of

00:22:02--> 00:22:45

the Battle of the Confederates, when all of the different armies that gathered around Medina laid siege to the city of Medina in order to attack the Muslims and to destroy them. He said a night came upon us that was extremely windy, a blue the sun and Stan storms raised around Medina. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out to his companions and he said, Allah Rajaraman your teeny Bihari own hula, hula, Yeoman piano is not from amongst you, a single person who will go and bring me the news of our enemies. And in return, you will be my companion on the Day of Judgment. For the for the laquan said, no one responded. No single person said anything strange was one man to

00:22:45--> 00:23:24

go into the Confederate army camp. There's 1000s of them is dusty. You can't even see where you're going. It's windy, no one volunteered. The Prophet sets on a lot while he was still a second time is there not from amongst you a man who will go and bring me the news of those people, and you will be my companion normal piano. No one responded the second time. The third time he said the same thing. And when no one responded, etc. For the first stand up for the fun go for the facility a loved one. So I had no choice. couldn't say no, he chose me by name. But he has the reward of gender, even though it's not something that he was prepared or willing to do. But he's been placed in that

00:23:24--> 00:24:04

situation. So for the for the law, one went to the army camps and he took the news, and he brought it back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in return. He has the companionship of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam anumana piano, the month of Ramadan is the month of opportunity. The month of Ramadan is a time when we can excel in good deeds, that when the companions would see opportunities that are far smaller, far less in degree than this month of mercy and forgiveness of Ramadan, they would hold that opportunity. They would take it because they don't know if they will get another one. That is the month of Ramadan. We should be like the elderly woman of bunnies

00:24:04--> 00:24:19

rallied as the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when we see an opportunity to come closer towards the gates of Jannah we run towards the opportunity that is given before us. barakallahu li walakum Rani was one of our new yakushima

We are badly or shall we oxen, Woody la Hirotaka, Amina Laila. He said already in salatu salam that when the first night of Ramadan comes upon us, the first night of Ramadan, the devils are chained and the gates of Hellfire are closed shut tight, not a single gate remains open. And the gates of general open wide, not a single gate from amongst them remains closed. And every single night a caller calls out and he says, oh, the one who wants good, come forward, and I'm the one who wants evil stay back. And every single night in Ramadan, Allah

00:25:52--> 00:26:31

frees emancipates people from the fire of home and that is each and every single night of Ramadan. The opportunities of Ramadan is that Allah will forgive all of your sins. The opportunity of Ramadan is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will free you from the fire of how the opportunity of Ramadan is that Allah will grant you Jenna, in this month of Ramadan. The Prophet Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Aveda rhodiola one click the Liberace ban when he stood on the on the minbar and three times he said mean and they said O Messenger of Allah. Why did you see amin and he told them that Jubilee rally sthalam came and he made three daughters and he commanded me to see I mean

to each and every single one of them from those three hours, man ramadan ramadan Fernando de la vida Houma mean for me, Whosoever witnesses the month of Ramadan, and they don't have their sins forgiven and they enter the fire of hell, that may Allah distance them from his mercy. See, I mean, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I mean, this is the month in which a large budget has given us so much scope for your one, from the fasting to the prayer to the recitation of the Quran, to giving sadaqa to looking after the poor and the needy to making each and every single one of us despite our dynamics and our responsibilities and our chores, we can find one or two acts of worship

00:27:17--> 00:27:55

that we can excel in one or two acts of worship, that we find it easier to perform, and perhaps that is our geared towards gender. don't squander this opportunity of Ramadan it is as a large soldier says in the Quran, a Yama module that limited days, nearly a week has already passed and before you know it the other three will also go male marzotto mix from amongst those people who in this month of Ramadan takes full grasp of this opportunity to learn social free us and our parents and our families from the fire of middle Larissa will grant us the highest levels of gender male last panel, Darla, forgive us for all of our sins, that which we know and that which we don't know, and we'll
