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

We know what happened to Linda was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, who I knew he was

00:00:17--> 00:00:34

about to do. It just gonna translate with the sheath has just said, which is relevant to what we're doing here is quoting a hadith from another source of light. So the law and it was seldom that he says in the law, he might not, he couldn't say enough a lot. He says that Allah azzawajal has

00:00:35--> 00:01:18

angels that are traveling this earth are roaming this earth seeking circles of knowledge. So when they find them, they attend them, and they tend them. And so much like they gather that they pile up, they sit on top of each other, they crowd the area, until they reach all the way up to the sky. And then allows you to ask these angels what why did these people gather, and they will tell them that they are gathering to seek your pleasure, they're gathering to learn, etc, etc. So Allah as the gentleman is asking, he, of course he knows but Allah wants to show the virtue of those people, to those angels, it's a kind of praise and a recognition of what they have done. So Allah is that

00:01:18--> 00:01:55

associado come and near Cordova for Tula home, he says, I make you witnesses that I forgiven them. So I mean, that one of the things that would cause a person to be forgiven, and one opportunity for a person to come close very close to Allah. So it is to have the proper intention, and to attend the halaqa because it's a reason for which a locket forgive them. And the conclusion of that Hadees is that the angels will say a lot there is so and so. He didn't come for that reason. He may have come to meet somebody else, or we had some some incidental thing. But he's not really there to learn or to attend the halaqa.

00:01:56--> 00:02:01

residences, homeowners, homeowners club him Jerry. So he says, These people,

00:02:02--> 00:02:06

their companion, that or their companion is not

00:02:08--> 00:02:25

burdened by them or their their companion is not misfortune, because of them. That is THEY BLESS anybody around them, even though so and so does not really intend to come and learn but because the Rama of Allah descended in includes everybody else, even that person who is not

00:02:27--> 00:03:15

one of them. And that tells you that if you're next to the people of mercy, what happens to you, you are included. And if you next the people who will be damned and cursed you will be also what downs and curse. So you have to select your place and select your friends. That is very, very important. So inshallah we return to speaking about and there's just one story. It's a bit lengthy, but it's nice about unfold a luminary out. And by that we conclude his story and then we'll move to the next personality insha Allah, and this involves him and how to know Rashid. How to Rashid, who was at that time, the halifa, the ambassador, the great and mighty Ambassador halifa, one of the strongest

00:03:16--> 00:03:45

hodaka or Caleb's in the ambassade dynasty in the adversity data. So it says here that he went on Hajj. And alphab neurobiol was one of the advisors of Harun so hold on told him, it says something is disturbing me seek someone that I can talk to. But something is burdening me seek someone that I can talk to. So he goes and he says,

00:03:47--> 00:04:14

Let's go to so and so. So he we go to he goes to a so and so. And el Hadji, who is it total talks to him and asks him questions, and then he replies, but he says you know, it didn't satisfy him. Then he says, find me somebody else until he eventually finds him and fully luminaria that's the that's the exchange that we want to focus on. And what he said to heroin and when hover over hormone responded.

00:04:15--> 00:04:24

He says own and fully look notary health. So they went to all four days of notary out and full day when they came to see him he was standing in Salah, reading the Koran.

00:04:25--> 00:04:45

So they knocked on the door. They said Who is this? They said? Answer ameerul momineen ameerul momineen is coming to visit your food it is in Mecca. And ameerul momineen the halifa himself is coming to your home. Now if you're a an average person what happens when you know that ameerul momineen is coming to your home?

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

I will panic or is a my house Oh he's here. How come you don't tell me that is is a very very special you don't get a mural meaning coming to visit you you just don't get that and that is to the credit

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

Have Harun Agnes look to the credit of Harun Rashid Rahim Allah. And there are a lot of you know, fables and myths about how Nora Rashid him being this and him being that is not an angel, but he's not that bad personality as well, that he that some people think he was Henry Rashid was a halifa. And he had a lot of good things going for him. He's not honorable hotpot. But at the same time, he had a lot of good things that he was doing. One of them is that when he wanted advice, he went and sought it from people who could give it so he went to his home. So he says, they told him answer me on what meaning what does he say? called manually? ameerul momineen? What business do I have with

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

amuro? Meaning Why should I rush? Why should I go? Why should I see him? He didn't care.

00:05:46--> 00:06:28

And that tells you about the personality of a photo is not easily shaken is not easily disturbed. That is when you are with a law surgeon and that really is something significant. That is when you're with Allah azza wa jal when things come out unexpectedly, you're still stable and calm. Right? Like, like a disaster, like an affliction like a loss. Why do we panic and lose our composure and lose our email is because it wasn't really very strong, but when it is strong, you're stable. So someone like me, you know what we need comes? And he says, Why should What? What business do I have with him? And what business does he have with me? For what to say? panelizer Subhanallah? Don't you

00:06:28--> 00:06:43

have to obey him? He replies, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Lisa did macmedia you little enough, Sir, he says the believer the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith that the believer should not humiliate himself. That is what is he saying? He's saying, I don't want to accompany

00:06:44--> 00:06:55

or to meet ameerul momineen. Because I don't want to humiliate myself, I don't want to put myself in a position where I will be humiliated or feel that I should oblige him, I should

00:06:56--> 00:07:05

acknowledge him I should you know, risk or agree to what he wants, because he has power and he has money. So there's fitna in visiting people of power.

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

So some a lot of the set of multiple lines under him. They would hate to visit

00:07:12--> 00:07:52

the omada the princes and the kings and the kilos. Why? Because they're afraid that they'll be tempted. Now if I enter, and I see all this wealth, and I see all this power, how do I know that if I enter, I'll still have control of my heart. That I will not be tempted when I see all of these attractions and temptations. I feel like they hated that. So he used the Hadith of the prophets a lot. He was sitting on what you're not supposed to humiliate yourself. He says, If I put myself in that position, if I come close to him, I'm afraid I'll be humiliating myself. So he's one down, he opened the door for them and then went up. And he turned off the lamp that is became dark. Then he

00:07:52--> 00:08:09

sat in a corner, small place, but he sat in a corner. So it says how narrow sheets came inside with his advisor. And they're finding their way, just by you know, getting a feel for the place they can't see. So the the hand of heroin touched on fulldive

00:08:10--> 00:08:56

soulfood. I even said when he touched it, he said what a soft hand this is, if it were to be saved later, from Allah's punishment, as you have a very soft hand, and I hope that later it will be saved from Allah's punishment. So his adviser said to himself because he was reporting this he says he, Harun is going to hear sincere advice tonight because this person is not afraid of him. He is going to hire him hear sincere advice. For her Ella who Harun said hoesley magic diakhaby he he says talk about what I want you to talk about why we came for meeting to give us advice to remind us. So he says in Omar Abdullah Abdullah Aziz Maria khilafah he said when Omar Abdul Aziz became a halifa he

00:08:56--> 00:09:15

invited so on so and so and so and so and so, for Pinilla home in the academy today to be heaven, Bella Shiro Allah, He said to them, when he called those people and he just became a funny for this is Omar, if not abdulazeez, he says, I have been afflicted with this. And this is a trouble that had come my way that

00:09:16--> 00:09:30

helped me and advise me, Fadel Hara Fattah Bella tanto Sabah, Kenya, he says so he considered it to be a burden and trouble coming his way and you and your company consider it to be a blessing.

00:09:31--> 00:09:42

That is he's telling me you see the difference between you guys? He considered it to be a burden and a responsibility you consider it to be that you've won something or you gained something you're very different.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

It's Salim Abdullah tells him he says in order to Nigeria hadn't been other biLlahi for some anhedonia Welcome if taraka mina naughty is if you want to be saved tomorrow. For some, that doesn't mean either be late if you want to be saved from the punishment of Allah for some antidote.

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

Yeah abstain from this world fast from this world don't take anything from it. What if thought okay if you want to break your fast break your first one you're gonna die that is now as a present as a halifa you got to stay away from the genie if you don't want to be tempted and if you want if you become weak say I'm going to break my fast I'm gonna take what I like I'm gonna eat what I like but when I die, but this dunya is not supposed to tempt you Mohammed Abu capital quarter the he told Omar either Athena jemena de Bella Italia con Caballero, Muslim Nina in the Kaaba. He says if you want to be saved, from Allah's punishment tomorrow, let the elders of Muslims to you beef like your

00:10:40--> 00:10:58

father, while Soto home in Dhaka and the one who has similar ages, yours is your brother was autohome in Dhaka, Allah and the one who is younger than you, he's your son, he's your child. This is how you're supposed to treat your subjects, other Muslims, they're not beneath you, right.

00:10:59--> 00:11:09

And by the way, this is not only relevant for a hurry for this, you can take all of these manners add up and advice and apply it to yourself. So if you somebody see somebody who's older than you, Who is he to you,

00:11:11--> 00:11:51

your father, and someone similar ages, years, he's what he's who to you, your brother, and someone younger than you, who is he? He's your son. So everybody is related to you. And everybody deserves your respect and deserves your mercy. Especially if you have power, not less if you have power, especially if you have power, because the laws and like ask you about that power. It's not that when you have power, you say, Oh, now I have it, I can do whatever I want. No, I have it. Allah is going to ask me about every moment of it. And that's why he can't consider it to be an affliction. He didn't consider it to be an opportunity because you're going to be asked about all of that. So he

00:11:51--> 00:12:00

says, Dr. abeka respect your father. Well, I couldn't attack and honor your brother with the henden Allah Allah D can be merciful with your son.

00:12:01--> 00:12:24

And he said the third person told him if you want to be saved from Allah punishment next that he believed Muslim enough to have been enough sake worker Allah hamata krahula enough six a man with either [???] he says if you want to be saved, love for Muslims, what do you love for yourself? Hate for them? What do you hate for yourself? And then if you wish die at this moment, you'd be ready to die. If you do this, you are ready to die.

00:12:27--> 00:12:50

And he said, What in the UK who knew luck? in the EU, Alec said they'll have some photo now turns to heroin. And he says he says I really am have a fear for you. I really worry about you. Omar had these several people around him, who do you have around you to give you such advice and to keep reminding you, Rebecca Harun Tyrone started to cry, he started to weep.

00:12:51--> 00:12:59

And Subhanallah we say how old he was powerful, and he is bad, and he's with or whatever. But then when someone reminds him, he cries.

00:13:00--> 00:13:03

When is the last time that when someone reminded us we cried.

00:13:06--> 00:13:23

And when is the last time actually, when we felt that there was something wrong within us? We sought someone to give us advice that I feel my heart is not right. I feel that I'm away from Allah zodat I want somebody to advise me, when did we do this. So heroin as the halifa did that

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

you're not stronger than heroin in are more busy than heroin.

00:13:29--> 00:14:11

So he also need to seek your heart and find if there's something wrong in it or not. And try to fix it and try to see those who can fix it. So this the adviser to heroin, he says, Be gentle with ameerul momineen with giving me such you know, you know, concentrated advice, be gentle with him Don't say you see how much he's crying. He says if no more Robbie, he says Oh, so and so his advisor, he says, You kill him. And your friends kill him and you want me to be easy or to go easy on him. That is you lead him in the wrong way. And he wanted me to go easy on him from afar, then However, she sort of woke up from that from his cry and he said, Tell me more. He says oh ameerul

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

momineen. I was told about.

00:14:15--> 00:14:25

I was told about a me. Okay, someone that Omar, Abdel Aziz hired as a provincial leader in one of those areas.

00:14:26--> 00:15:00

And that person complained to Omar, and he's just like, there was correspondence between them and that person had a complaint. So Omar rhodiola, or himolla, one of the one who sent him a letter. and in it he said, Oh, the Tula sorry, and Inari alluded to that. He says, Remember how long the people of Hellfire will stay up, they will not have an opportunity to sleep. They will not have an opportunity to rest in Hellfire while being punished forever. What Yeah, can you answer your on your

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

When you sort of become a dealer, buy a condo at work, or a job. And he says and let that not be. The last thing that you will hear from Allah azzawajal is his condemnation of you when you meet him on the Day of Judgment. So you leave, hoping for nothing from Allah as though jail because he had sentenced to hellfire.

00:15:18--> 00:16:05

So he's reminding him of what reminding him of hellfire. So funny mokara Al Kitab, that preventional leader, when he read that message from Omar Abdullah Aziz, he packed his bags. And he traveled back to Aziz. And he said, You have terrified me. If you ripped my heart out of my body, by the message that you have sent me here is everything. I'm not working for you anymore. I'm not going to be responsible for anything anymore. Because that kind of advice was effective, reminded him of the hereafter. And what a law surgeon may do to you, if you are unjust if you are unkind, if you are unmerciful, and then it actually worked. I mean, I don't know if it worked because he quit and he

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

resigned, but it actually worked in a sense what it reached his heart.

00:16:09--> 00:16:19

For Baca, Harun Harun kept crying after he had heard all of that, he said, Tell me more. So he said, the super lice of a lahari he was alum.

00:16:20--> 00:17:04

Someone once came to him and he said, Give me a position of power make me an immediate. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Mr Hassan, Adama Yama, Yama is that leadership will be agony, regret, on the day of judgment, you will be a regret and a burden on the Day of Judgment. So if you can never become a prince be if you can avoid that physician, avoided, especially if you're dreaming of it, especially if you want to be a person of power, especially if you want to be the person who's famous. If you want to be recognized, if you want to have power, that's not really a good intention at all. So here, he sets a little audio send them to someone who came seeking that

00:17:04--> 00:17:16

position, he says is going to be be a regret on the day of judgment when you meet Allah azza wa jal, and he holds you responsible for everything that you've done and everything that you've said. So if you can never assume that position.

00:17:17--> 00:17:23

So he's reminding her own, remember the burden and remember the responsibility that you're in?

00:17:24--> 00:18:09

And he said to Harun kept crying and weeping. So he said, Tell me more. He says, Yeah, Hassan and he says, oh, handsome, one, handsome one. A lot as though Jen will ask you tomorrow about all of those people, every Muslim who is living, you are responsible for them. So if you can save your this face from Hellfire do and never sleep, or wake up from sleep, betraying any one of your subjects, or having in it any desire to betray any one of your subjects. Because the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam had said that if someone wakes up in the morning with that position with that power wakes up in the morning lashonda home betraying them, let me Hurry, hurry hotel agenda, he is not going to

00:18:09--> 00:18:55

smell paradise. But if you have a position of power, and you wake up in the morning, and you have betrayed them and did not give them their rights, you're not going to smell genda on the Day of Judgment. So he's telling them you're responsible for every single Muslim. So now Don't rush he tells him this, um, do you have a debt that we can pay it off? He says, yes. A lot as though Jim, I have a debt that I have to pay to Allah zildjian and he will hold me responsible for it, and vote to me if he holds me responsible for it. And Woe to me, if he does not inspire me how to respond and what to say when he questions me. Because those who are successful, when Allah asks them, he'll

00:18:55--> 00:19:34

inspire them to what to say, you will have magetta Allah azza wa jal will and inspire them say this and say that but if Allah is not telling me what to say, does not put in my heart What to say? What can I say? And what excuse would I have? He says in them Annie, Dana, Eva Darwin said, this is not talking about your debt to Allah. I'm talking about your debt to other people. Do you have any that like that? He said a lot as though did not command me to do this a lot as the judge did not ask me to do this. He just commanded me to worship Him alone and have to hate on him alone. Allah says when mahalo octogenarian INSA Illa Dr. Boone, he says meaning what Allah did not command me to go and

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

seek money from your from anybody else. He just asked me to worship Allah azza wa jal. So this is money coming his way. Right. So bocadillo had the alpha DNR he says this is 1000 dinar. dinar is coins that are from gold. Is this is 1000 dinar take it and spend it on your family. And you know strengthen your Eva with it. Is it Subhana Allah Subhana Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

due to safety, and you're punishing me with this, take it and leave.

00:20:06--> 00:20:47

So that money was what to him. fitna says, I'm taking you to Allah as a surgeon and you're trying to take me on the opposite direction with your money, take it and leave from a summit This is then he kept kept quiet, and he stopped talking to them until we left. So he says, When we left, he told his advisor is if you're going to take me to somebody else later take me to someone like this. Who's going to give me this type of advice. So while they're outside and they could they could hear what's going on on the inside one of the family of unfold it comes to alfoil and she says, Don't you see the hardship that we in and the difficulty that we were experiencing if you have taken this 1000

00:20:47--> 00:21:17

dinar, we could do this and do that with it? Ultimately was said in a method or method to come home in Canada home Barry aronia, Karuna Minh QSB filla makabayan Haruka karula. He said, my example in your example is like people who own a camel and they used to work this camel and earn from it money and when it got older, it's they slaughtered it, and they ate its meat. Meaning what? Meaning you don't mind if I'm destroyed just to feed you something? If I take this, it's my slaughter.

00:21:19--> 00:22:00

Not my physical slaughter, but my spiritual slaughter. If I take this is gonna kill me. And he's telling them you don't mind if I die. Your example in my example is like what people who had a camel and when they needed to kill him, they killed them to eat. So you want to kill me to eat? So Harun when he heard that he said, Take the money back, maybe he'll accept it, maybe he'll take it now. So they took the money back. And they found him sitting on the roof, how long came and how long? Who is he what again, the Khalifa. Harun came and sat next to him. And he's talking to him. And that will fall Dale is completely quiet, not answering back and talking. And he's not answering back until one

00:22:00--> 00:22:07

lady came out. And he said, Don't you see how you're harming the shape, please leave. He's not going to talk to you. So he left.

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

So Pamela, and this is the conclusion of the story of unfolding of Nigeria.

00:22:14--> 00:22:36

But imagine yourself having a visit from the halifa imagine yourself the halifa offering to settle all the all your debts. And we understand that alpha doll was in need, and the family over for doll was in need. But that money to him was a fitna and only when you really have even really be able to say no to this money and no to this power.

00:22:37--> 00:23:06

So these stories Subhanallah they can be revived. We can actually become like them, not overnight. But with worship with asking a lot as though gel with da and with keeping them in mind and trying to imitate what they have done. We can become like them the vanilla soldier. Now begin in sha Allah, another personality and that personality is Mohammed Idris Shafi, a famous Shafi Rahim Allah and His Cooney is Abu Abdullah.

00:23:08--> 00:23:18

And he's chef he says about himself, he says we need to be Rosa, Senator from Siena. omiya he says I was born in because I can Philistine and that your 150

00:23:19--> 00:23:48

will help me to illuma cow on Amazon Athena says then I was transferred or carried to Macau when I was two years old. So he Rahim Allah was born in Gaza, and he is from koresh. He comes from the line of Quraysh. His father died before he was two. And so his mother took him traveled with him to take him back to his family to be raised around this family around his uncle's around his relatives. So he grew up in that area in Mecca.

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

Some of the things that he says about himself Rahim Allah.

00:23:56--> 00:24:39

So he says good tomorrow on October Sherif, he says, I was a person who was writing down poetry, a chef Al Hamdulillah. You may know this about him or not spent a lot of time in the bad idea among the nomads. He was collecting their poetry but was also collecting their language and he was known, really well known to be a very eloquent scholar. There's some people in the mejlis of the shafia in the teaching the circle of a sheffey. Some people would come to learn. Some people would come to a Shafi simply to her to hear him speak. Just to hear him speak and write down what he's saying why, linguistically, guys spend so much time with the nomads with the Bedouins whose language was

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

uncorrupted, that he was of a high standards and eloquence when it came to the Arabic language. Some people have said too far as far as that as Sheffield is Pooja. That is when he says something in Arabic. His saying is evidence that is Arabic. Right? He's ever he's saying his evidence. It's Arabic. This is how pure his language was.

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

And some people would attend the halaqaat of a Shafi to learn from his adverb. Similarly also mmm no humble is not learning fifth, not learning Hadith, but they want to learn from his manners just to witnesses manners and have that frog on them and model that once they leave.

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

So

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

the thing they said well lo alum that propelled him to seek knowledge of the Sharia. He was among the nomads.

00:25:31--> 00:25:57

I spend a lot in sending a lot of times with them and once he was among in one of those tribes, a bedwin came to him and he said, Mata, Murat into Hadrian, watoto Yama, what do you say about a woman that in one day she is clean and the other day she's menstruating? So Sherry said I do not know. I have no idea. How Edna feel for you, though. So Ola became an nephila. He says that you learn these things, which our obligation is better than learning other

00:25:58--> 00:26:38

recommended things, Arabic and what have you. So a chef, and he says in the motto to her that he that he says, I'm learning this to get that, and indeed, that's what I intend to do. And he went, Rahim Allah, and he started to learn fifth in particular, he says about himself, he says, going to your team, and he to me says I was an orphan. My mother was raising me. She didn't have anything to give my teacher to teach me what kind of Animoto the Yemeni and approval with outcome is. So my teacher was just happy instead of payment, that I will become his deputy to take his place that when he wants to leave, he leaves and I take his place in the halaqa he was okay with that. That was my

00:26:38--> 00:26:50

payment because it they didn't have enough money. He was really for halophila madam to Anna when I finished memorizing the Quran, and he says about himself that he finished memorizing the Quran when he was seven.

00:26:51--> 00:27:09

And he finished the memorization of wat Malik. And at that time, that was the only and the first book of Hadith. And the most famous book of Hadith is what automatic Buhari was in there Muslim was in there, none of these other books were there. So the water was there, so he memorized a lotta when he was 10.

00:27:11--> 00:27:51

Color Polo macadam tool for an adult image This is Mrs. It says when I finished the Koran I went to the masjid meaning into the circles of knowledge, that's where the circles of knowledge were being held. So I started hearing and memorizing the Hadith. And also the fact that is attached to it for condone nor evil of me aloo fractography sadita almost an hour can Atlanta Georgia to nazima he says so he had no place to write on. So he used to go and collect bones whatever he would find bones he would kill like bones and he would go and write on pieces of bones whatever he would hear whatever he would learn and he would collect that in jars at home until he had a lot of jars collected at

00:27:51--> 00:28:16

home but he didn't have anything and other another narration he says about himself he would go and take scraps paper scraps that people have discarded, the written out already but the other side is empty. You go like that, and try to write on it whatever he can. So this is how much he had for him Allah. But that is the type of person that became a sheffey and I'm gonna humble

00:28:17--> 00:28:33

him Allah He says your wife in Hadith, it says it is said in the Hadith and that has Hadith is authentic, that Allah sense. Every 100 years a person that renews for this renews for this oma its religion, of every 100 years,

00:28:34--> 00:28:56

every century, Allah will send to this oma a person that renews this religion for it. So he says for not gonna fill me as an Ola. So we examine the first 100 and we found this person to be Omar Abdulaziz. And he says we looked into the second 100 and we found this person to be a Shafi. This is what Ben was saying.

00:28:59--> 00:29:41

Muslim No he doesn't. He says Shafi one of his teachers, he says, Yeah, but the lefty nurse, he says, Oh Abdullah, start giving fatwa, you are qualified to give fatwa. And he was less than 20 years old. When that happened. The chef he was brilliant, in added to the ability that he could memorize very quickly. He was brilliant. He would understand things things very quickly, and is able to understand subpanel and that's what led him eventually, to write the first and most important of his books at rissalah. And about man, fundamentals of jurisprudence is able to encapsulate and understand fifth key matters and bring them back to the roots and have principles that he can based

00:29:41--> 00:29:52

all these filthy matters on these principles where you know in practice before, but a Shafi was able to bring them all together and put them coherently in one book, Rahim Allah.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

called to the Abbey, the son of Amitabh no humble and humble can be counted as one of the students of a chef

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

He says, Are you want to do an encounter chef? Are you what type of man was a chef? Because I, I see that you make a lot of dua for him. He says, Yeah, Bonnie who says Oh, my son, a chef, he was like the sun for this earth. And he was like safety and security for people. Can you live without both? These This is how significant he was. He also said, he says, sit down. There are six people that every night I make up for them late at night. One of them was a Shafi

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

because he had felt so indebted to a chef.

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

And it felt that connection to him that he said, what every night, I'm making too hot for him.

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

And said, Subhana Allah, you can see here,

00:30:43--> 00:31:10

you know, on the right miani fidelity on the side of Eminem, no humble, and the honor of teaching Islam on the side of a Shafi that is for you want real honor. And for people to really remember you not that you need people to remember you, it's enough that Allah knows you. But if you want people to make do out for you, rather than go and say so and so make dua for me, so and so remember me, give them that benefit them.

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

And if you benefit them, they'll make dua for you, right.

00:31:15--> 00:31:17

And the greatest benefits that you can give to them is what?

00:31:18--> 00:31:46

their religion. So if you teach a person, their religion, it they'll make dua for you. And before they make dua for you, the angels have a lawmaking job for you. So if you want somebody to make up for you invest in this religion and teach this religion, whatever you can teach what do you know, but teach it. So there's a lot for you there. And if somebody teaches you something, even if it's something small, in that detail, he is your chef.

00:31:48--> 00:32:22

It doesn't have to be older than you can be hungry, and that's fine. It doesn't have to have be in general has to be more knowledgeable than you. He may not know as much as you, but he may know one or two things more than you. And if they talk to you this thing and that thing, he is your sheath and part of the Soto's panel or this fidelity to this person. And acknowledging his favor is to make that for him. So honored and humbled recognize the virtue of Sheffield and what he got from him is every single night I'm making it out for him. So consider ask yourself, Is there a person that you're supposed to make up for? We know our parents,

00:32:23--> 00:32:36

we know our teachers, okay, and anybody else that you should make dua for at least once in a while, that you remember them because of what they have given you. That's part of what that's part of the connection that you have to the believers.

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

what some of the above is Shafi that these things are quoted often.

00:32:43--> 00:33:12

Hello, my Oracle haca. 100 has in fact albida harmony in the heat who was referred to Mata Wanaka Bharani, Anil hakuhodo, de Falco, je la sasami. Nine, it says if I bring in a discussion in an argument or even in a debate, if I've been proof against someone needing to refute what he what he says, against what he is saying, if I bring it and he accepts that evidence, he says, I respect him, okay? And I like him

00:33:13--> 00:33:16

what I care about and he says, but if he starts

00:33:17--> 00:33:26

resisting it, and becoming arrogant, and rejecting the truth is less of a thumb in irony. Okay, I lose my respect for him.

00:33:27--> 00:33:45

So, the respect that He has for someone, it's not about whether he wins the debate or not, but whether he accepts the truth or not. He says, If I bring someone evidence, and he accepts it, defeats himself, defeats the shaytaan defeats his ego and says, Yes, I'm right. I'm wrong. And you're right. It says I respect him.

00:33:46--> 00:33:47

And he started liking him.

00:33:49--> 00:34:00

But if I say by bringing evidence, and he starts still quarreling with me, it says, I lose respect for him like that, because his compass is not the truth. His compass is his own ego. That's what he cares about.

00:34:01--> 00:34:21

And he says, Rahim, Allah man, hadn't have to unmute. It says I've never had an argument with someone or debated someone and was happy when he made a mistake or wanted him to make a mistake, is when I'm sitting and talking to someone, and think about yourself, and let me think about myself. Also, if when you're debating with someone,

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

and you want to win, what do you want him to say? You want him to slip?

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

You want him to make a mistake? And if he makes a mistake, you'd be happy. Because now I got him. He says, never when I debated someone I would like for him to make a mistake. I'd like him to actually be right be accurate, because if he's right, I don't have to bother right of teaching him or showing him or whatever. We don't have to argue and debate. So I want him to be right and I want to be right I left in what I left for myself. So I'm saddened when he became would has a mistake, not happy because of it. And he says, My mother had an illness. I have to call you

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

said that while you're on where kuno Allah He, I mean Allah He will have is whenever I do debate someone or argue with someone, I would love that Allah would support him. And Allah would help him reach the truth. And Allah azzawajal would, you know, take care of him and Allah as such it will preserve him whenever I'm debating someone I'd like a lot of xojo to guide him.

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

Right, one another to add an 11am Oba Libyan Allahu Akbar Allah rissani only Sani I've never I when I debated someone I do not care whether Allah azza wa jal makes the truth manifest on my tongue or his tongue.

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

This is what do I care about? Is the truth itself, not winning?

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

Because sometimes, I'm wrong.

00:35:46--> 00:36:05

And if I'm no, I'm wrong. And he's right, I need to surrender to what he's saying. Submit to what he's saying. So he says, I, if I'm seeking the truth, that doesn't matter to me, whether it comes from his tongue or my tongue, I'm going to hold on to it no matter where it came from. But my objective is the truth. Not me winning, and him losing.

00:36:06--> 00:36:17

So you think about it's upon a lover next time you may be having an argument with someone. And the only thing that at that moment that you want to do is what defeat them. And the only thing that you want to do is win.

00:36:18--> 00:36:23

And ask yourself, do you at that moment, won the truth or you want to win?

00:36:24--> 00:36:41

And do you want him to reach the truth will be defeated. So if you want him to reach the truth, then you will have the same feeling as a chef er to him a lot. I wish that Allah will guide him, I wish that the truth will come out of his tongue not of mine, because easier for him to accept it when he knows it. When it comes out of him, not me.

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

That is the manners of debate.

00:36:46--> 00:36:56

He says the word to Anil Hellfire talamona Mineola in sabula, Yemen who Shea he says I wish that all people will learn from me, but none of them will know that this came from me.

00:37:00--> 00:37:02

So what what is it what is your worry about here?

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

Knowledge itself. If you know this, about the Quran, you know this about the sooner he says when I know it, I wish that everybody knows it.

00:37:13--> 00:37:29

And that, that they would not know that they know it through me. I'm not the teacher, I'm not the shape. I'm not the person who's sitting here and teaching them and they they come and thanking me and acknowledging what I've done is that I don't want any of that. I simply want if I know something good, I want everybody to know that good thing.

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

And that is easy. If a person has a good heart.

00:37:33--> 00:37:39

If you know that something is bad, don't you want people to know that this is bad as well. So they can avoid it

00:37:40--> 00:38:15

doesn't matter whether you teach it to teach it to them or somebody else? Because sometimes we become jealous, right? If I teach it to you, or did somebody else teach it to you, that doesn't matter. As long as you learn it, as long as it saves you from hellfire. If you know something is good, and it will take you to gender Don't you want everybody to know? I want everybody to know. So that doesn't matter whether it's comes from you or somebody else. As long as they know it. And he sincerely was saying I wish that they would know everything, and that none of them would know that it is me. None of them would know that it was me.

00:38:16--> 00:38:19

He said also are himolla.

00:38:20--> 00:38:37

He said, I shall do Amani thalassa, there are three things that are really difficult. I'll do them in color to be generous when you don't have much. When you're poor, but still generous. That's really difficult. While What are your halwa and to be pious when you're alone,

00:38:38--> 00:38:45

while academics will help pay and to see the truth, next to a person that you're afraid of, or you hope that he will give you something.

00:38:47--> 00:39:20

And that is if you think about it. So very true. It says it's easy to be generous when you have a lot but when you just have little Could you be generous. I don't have a lot of money, but I'm gonna be generous with few dollars. I don't have a lot of time, but can I be generous with few minutes that I will give to you? Can you be generous, that that is generosity. Now when you have tons of money and you say here a few dollars, that's not it's good, but it's not generosity, generosity, when you really need it, and you give it to somebody else. That's one. And what have you held to a piety when you're alone?

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

That's when you find out who you are.

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

Not when you're around other people.

00:39:28--> 00:39:35

When we are around other people, most of the time. It's not a secret, right? We're pretending.

00:39:36--> 00:39:57

Right? You're, you're on your best behavior when you're around other people. You're pretending you're selecting how you walk, you're selecting what you say you're selecting everything right? The topics that you focus on. Your God is up. Okay, what he's gonna say about me, everybody's watching me, right? So you're up. So this is not you.

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

Yeah. Any hope all

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

are sincere but this is not us. Who are you? When you close the door, and no one is watching you. This is who you are. What you talk about what you think about what you do, when you pray, how you pray, what you look at what you choose not to look at, this is you. She says, when you have piety when you're alone, that is difficult. Okay? So when you're alone is not an opportunity to meet to disobey. It should be an opportunity for me to obey. You know, some have said, he said, the real people of a man will be as happy with their solitude as the sinful are happy with their solitude.

00:40:42--> 00:40:51

Because the sinful are afraid of people's eyes, what happens when they close the door, close the door and say, finally, I can do what I want. Nobody sees me, right? I can do what I want.

00:40:53--> 00:41:03

The same thing with the pious? Because if I just do what when they close the door, what do they say? Finally I can do what I want. But it's not the same thing. What do they do? So I'm with Allah azza wa jal.

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

And now they can become

00:41:07--> 00:41:46

because when they're around other people, they'll be afraid this could be this could be showing off. It could be this in the but when you close the door, there's no real anymore. Now it could be sincere now I can really be free, genuine with a loss origin. Now when I read the haoran it's not for anybody else. Now when I pray, it's not for everybody else. Now when I make drugs, not for anybody else. I'm doing it as origin. So they're happy when they're alone? not sad. Okay. And the last thing that he says Kelly metadata in the manual, Joe, you have to see the truth, despite you fearing someone or needing something from them. You can say that I'm strong. I can say anything. If

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

you're no one.

00:41:48--> 00:41:56

But you find that you need something from that person. And they make a mistake and you go to them and tell them that you made a mistake.

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

Can you? What if I upset them?

00:42:01--> 00:42:06

What if What if I want something from them? They won't give it to me anymore? Or you fear them?

00:42:07--> 00:42:10

So you'll be their slave as long as you think that they have power?

00:42:14--> 00:42:31

And that's why if you go back to all full time, why wasn't fully able to talk to her on like this on her own? If he wanted, he could have asked to execute that before he died in a in a snap. One Why? Why was awful, Dale? Why did he feel so secure? Next to how long? Was he afraid of him?

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

No.

00:42:34--> 00:43:16

Did he want anything from him? No. That's how you become strong. Because I don't he says here's money. He says I don't want it. Because if you take it, it gets used to taking money from him. He said no, never take your money is it keep it independent. Now. I'm strong as you are. If I don't need anything from you, and if I don't feel you, I can say whatever I want to you. I'm not your slave. So if you're a slave to someone, you fear them, and you hope from them. But if you cut that hope and cut that fear and know that it is all in the hands of Allah not in their hands, you're going to see the truth to them. And whether they are upset or not happy or not, that's not really

00:43:16--> 00:43:48

your business. That is between them and Allah azza wa jal, but I said what you needed to hear, and if I don't get what I need from you, I'll get it from somebody else. And you can't harm me. Because harm is in the hands of Allah as a surgeon, it's not in your hands. That's the case. You'll be bold, not rude, but you're gonna be bold, and you will save the truth. And you'll speak against evil and you will not care who likes it and who doesn't like it. So that's what a Chevy said that this is difficult, but it can be done.

00:43:51--> 00:44:26

And the last thing in sha Allah will say halaman tala, Berea, SATA, forward rottman Hawaii data, so data, data photo element Kathy element, key theory says, the one who seeks leadership, the one who seeks prominence right reesa is to become a leader, man of power says if you seek it is going to run away from you. Without a subtitle had and if the young man assumes a preset seems a place of authority factor or anyone Kathir he will lose a lot of knowledge. Meaning if the head if it was someone who was young, assumes a position was able to

00:44:27--> 00:44:45

judge and command and forbid and whatever. So he has power, and people need him but he does not have the time to learn a chef. He says he will lose a lot of knowledge. So before he assumes the position of power, learn so that you're qualified when you become powerful to wield that power. Well.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

That's the difference. It's not about power or fame. This is if you want to be famous. If Allah wants the best for you, if you want to be famous and you run after it, it went away from you.

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

That's good for you. By the way.

00:45:03--> 00:45:11

It is said that those who want fame, they run after it and it runs away from them. But the ones who run away from it, it runs after them. Well, lo and

00:45:13--> 00:45:32

so the set of never considered fame and recognition to be a price. If it happens to them, it's like, yellow. Why did this happen? To me? It's like a disaster. Why did this happen to me, because it is a disaster when people start to know you and recognize you and point to you and say this and that your heart is in a mess now

00:45:33--> 00:46:13

that you can regain control over it, it's very hard. So he says before you reach that stage where people will be able to recognize you and you will have power learn. Because within when you learn, maybe perhaps then when Allah tests you with these things, you'll be able to survive. So that's why he says, if you're seeking that type of position, and that type of recognition is going to run away from you. So don't worry about it. If there is good in it, it will come to you and if there's no good in it, you don't want it anyway. And don't concern yourself with power and leadership and this and that. Don't concern yourself with that. But learn and if you are fit to be a leader, a load put

00:46:13--> 00:46:14

you in that position, you don't worry about it.

00:46:16--> 00:46:23

So in sha Allah will stop here but Neela as origin and we will continue next week with a chef Avraham Allah

00:46:25--> 00:46:36

if I said something that needs explanation, let me know if you have questions in sha Allah, about this topic or other things inshallah, go ahead and ask before inshallah we complete

00:46:44--> 00:46:49

he says, the severest the most difficult things to do are one two and three.

00:47:01--> 00:47:04

Definitely, and the one piety when you're alone.

00:47:10--> 00:47:19

Okay, no one on this side. No One No One No One and no one on this side. But you've just come along. So panic lager, hamitic eyeshadow and a nail and stuff.
