Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was so happy he was seldom law mine, Vic rica or Shu Kritika was Neva lytic Muhammad
the title of the chapter chapter 32. In the book of the softness of the heart keytab record
is baboon Allah mirlo Bill Hawa team you wanna you have for me now.
And our MaryLu will have a team meaning deeds and actions are judged by their conclusions are valid, or they lack validity based on their conclusions. What may you have or mean her and what you fear? And we, what do you worry about? When it comes to the conclusions of the deets? Meaning, a deed or a series of deeds are not simply enough, until you see how you end that deed? How does it conclude?
Similarly, a one's life and that is easier to understand.
But it has the same meaning that one's life like if you at this moment is righteous.
That's not enough in itself until you see what how you die.
Upon what do you die? Is it upon Islam
or not? Is that upon righteousness or not? So as we have when we want to judge a person's life, we look at the conclusion of it, to see where he goes, the validity of an action or a deed and the some of that is one's life is to look at how that deed concludes. And that gives us an insight into how that deed is and was and the Hadith insha. Allah will make it clear.
It says here that another EBU sallallahu alayhi wa sallam era, Julian you call it roll Mushrikeen he looked and he saw Somalia was salam, a man who was fighting the non believers. Sad that tells you that this is a battle. The Muslims are at one of those battles. It doesn't specify one of those battles.
And he looked at someone a Muslim, the army of Muslims was fighting who
the polytheist the disbelievers what can I mean Allah mean Muslim Meena Rana and unknown he was among the Muslims or fighting the non believers. He was the most accomplished the bravest,
thoroughly Muslim in Ghana and and her meaning that he fought so many of the non believers that he sufficed other Muslims from fighting them.
You follow what I'm what it says there. That is he fought one and then he fought the other and then he fought the other and then if he was able to neutralize one person, then that's one less person that the other Muslims have to fight. So he protected most Muslims by how brave he was. So meaning he was the most accomplished when he was fighting for Khan and maybe use of the Prophet saw he was sitting him said man, a hubba and young Laura, it gradually mean Ali natif William Merida Harada he says if someone would like to see one of the people of hellfire, let him look at that person.
Further a lot further via Hora June. So a man followed that man, the one who was fighting so heroically, the one whom the prophets Allah Selim said that he's going to be where and hellfire he followed him
for a missile Alaverdi he continued to fight valiantly had the jury until he was injured. So that one who was fighting So real quickly was injured. Khalifa star general mode he rushed death he couldn't wait.
For color be the WebRTC fee for Da Hua Ji so he took the blade of his sword he put it between his breasts on his on his chest for to harm Allah Allah He He leaned on it had to hot I mean, Beanie get up until this that blade exited from his shoulders from his back. Meaning he did what?
Suicide he killed himself. For Columna be useful Allahu Allah. He was sent them to the province alone send them said in an Abdullah Mailloux female you're a nurse who am Allah Halal Jana who in the whole Amina Halyna is is a person would perform the deeds of the people of Ghana as far as people could see. But he is from the people of hellfire. Well, yeah, I'm going to FEMA or NASA Amala Helene
Not Muhammad Ali Jinnah. And he does seemingly the deeds of the people of hellfire as far as people could see. And he is of the people of Jana, were in normal amount will be how Artemia. And indeed, actions are, but by their ends and conclusions, meaning how they end is the most significant part that tells you about whether this thing was valid or not. An overall was whether this life was righteous or not.
Now, this hadith is really an important Hadith because there are so many lessons in it. And each of them is powerful, and each of them is important. And in trying to understand this hadith, we have to understand at the same time that this thing that we've read in about two minutes or so
really summarizes an entire event. At the time of the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam that spending only two minutes with it doesn't serve it justice.
So we have to admit, like when you're reading the Hadith, and even when you're reading the Quran, there is a gap, right? Because this entire thing was given in what summarized in two minutes, did it take two minutes for this to happen? No, this is a battle. So for you to try to bridge some of this gap. You have to spend more time with that hadith and think and rethink, and try to relive, to the best of our ability what happened then. So this is a battle and it is said it is labor.
But it is a battle, meaning that the Muslims had to march had to get ready had to travel. And what accompanies that is what fear and anxiety and hardship and you're worried about your family and you're worried about yourself. Right? All these emotions are real. And you approach the polytheist, or the non believers, the enemies, and you wonder to yourself, will I go back to my family? You wonder, why is it that they don't accept the truth.
So it's, it's something real, and it takes days or maybe weeks for us to reach this stage, this scene.
And when the battle starts, and that you don't doubt, carry with you all that anxiety, anticipation, and the army within unbelievers and you and the fighting starts.
And then among all the people who are fighting the kuffaar, you find this Muslim.
And this Muslim is brave, is inflicting harm. And he's protecting other Muslims. And the
is one because of him and people like him.
And he's because of his deeds is protecting you, and protecting other Muslims as well. And he seems to be so daring. He doesn't care about his life. What do you describe? How do you describe that person? What is he?
He's brave. He's a hero. He's a hero. Like you look at that person. And he's a hero. Look at him.
Look at what he's doing. Look how held how he's helping. He's a hero.
Now, imagine hearing them the prophets, Allah loosen him saying he's in hellfire.
The shock? Right? Do you understand the shock?
That is difficult to process. So it says in other narrations of the Hadith.
In the Sahel as well, Hala, had occurred about the human ear tab that when they heard that from the prophets of Allah was in them, some were about to doubt.
Because to them to their minds, there's a contradiction How could this person
be in hellfire?
Because something is wrong?
So how could he be an alpha? So they were about to doubt what the Prophet was saying? Because to them, what is apparent is that this person is a Muslim fighting, he could be killed. And just it doesn't make sense. It doesn't compute, that he could be in hellfire. And there's a lesson in all of this. So there are men who had heard this who followed him. He said he decided to follow that man, because so far he did not receive any visual confirmation that this person could be in hellfire. So he thinks to himself, what is it about this man that is going to send him to hellfire.
So he followed him, followed him followed him, this person continued to behave and do well in battle until he gets injured.
And then, as you said, he kills himself.
And that was the confirmation. Something that no one could know
except Allah azza wa jal, and he had told his prophets are like, send him that's his end. That's what he has on the inside. But no one otherwise could know this. And that's why he said, Sal, Allah audio sent him that a person could perform the deeds of the people of heaven as far as people could see.
So, one of the first lessons here that we have to learn is what you see is not always reality. Sorry. So you could absolutely right. So you follow right? So what you see is, you could see that this person is performing so well and is defending Islam. So as far as you could see is, He is a righteous person, he is a good person, but the reality the inside is only known to Allah as xuejun. That's why when you want to praise someone, what do you say, nessa hookah together? I think him to be this and that, because the certainty of knowing what is in his heart belongs to Allah azza wa jal, but you don't know. What does he have in his heart or in your heart, as far as you can see on
the outside, he is righteous, He prays he gives a chi he gives Dawa, this this this, the inside I leave it to Allah azza wa jal. So here, you don't always, or you can't always trust your perception, you can see that someone
should be in Jannah. But he is not. And that shock is real. So even if, at the time of the Prophet salallahu Salam, if some people are then that time could doubt that could happen today, more so that people could doubt that even more so today. For instance, an example that we can learn from today is I suppose, to kind of like bring this closer to home. Suppose that hypothetically,
there is someone who defends Islam, right defends Islam.
I don't mean physically, I mean, in speech in writing, and you look at him, and he is a great defender of Islam.
Suppose then, hypothetically, and you love him so much. Suppose hypothetically after some time, he starts to waver, suppose hypothetically, after some time, he strays, and he rejects Islam altogether. What does that do to you?
shakes your iman, doesn't it?
Absolutely. It's a fitna.
And it's hard because this person who is a defender of Islam, and you've invested so much of you in him emotionally, you're connected to him. All of a sudden, not maybe not all of a sudden, but maybe to you it seems like unprecedented. He moves from this to the opposite. And he loses faith. What does that do to your faith? undermines it. And here is where you start or have to emphasize that I'm worshiping Allah azza wa jal, now people and then following Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, not people. So any their idea and this is this is an important for you to acquire independence, in terms of emotional independence. Any Dyer is guiding you to the prophets of Allah, he was in them was that
Daya to deviate? he deviates, were he to abandon He abandons but you do not lose your faith in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he's only a guide and a messenger to the messenger, you would mean he's only a messenger to the messenger. So you always have to remind yourself that I love him. As long as he follows the prophets of Allah hottie who early he was in love. If he starts to waver, if he starts to compromise, then he will deserve less allegiance, less love in accordance with what he had wavered and what he had compromised. So it's important to remember this, because we get attached sometimes to people and we forget that they're supposed to die he does to something that is
higher, and that is Allah and His Prophet. So
that is one important lesson. And we emphasize the other lesson, which is what that a person could be doing the actions of the people of heaven, as far as people could see. And enter hellfire. So in the case of this man, apparently he was doing the deeds of the people of heaven. He was doing what Jihad
the greatest like the pinnacle, Lord, were to send him the pinnacle. Because you are endangering your own existence. You're sacrificing your own self. There is nothing greater than that. You can sacrifice time. What Subhanallah sacrifice time we think that we've done a lot. We've sacrificed a little bit of money. We think that we've done a lot this is a person who is
He's willing, apparently to sacrifice his own self. So you would think to yourself, This person should be the first to enter Jannah. Right? How does he end up in hellfire?
Then there must be something missing on the inside.
Because apparently heaven inside as a different story.
And when you're outside doesn't match the inside the inside fails you
write the inside fails you. Now we don't know, this man, was he a hypocrite meaning he was simply fighting on behalf of his tribe, because of certain allegiances, or was he a Muslim, but he panicked and he killed himself. And because of that he deserved testify, we don't know.
And the beautiful thing about the Sahaba, or the Allahu anhu, is that they didn't ask.
And there is beauty, and an art form, and other manners to questions.
And this is something to learn, actually, from this hadith as well. That if you have the ability to ask anything does not mean that you should ask anything with me.
Like you could ask anything, right? Doesn't mean you should ask. You should be selective and ask about what benefits you so asking whether this person was a Catholic or a Muslim
may harm his family. It
could harm his family disgrace his family, deeply sad in his family, and the prophets. Allah Selim didn't volunteer and say he's in hellfire because he's a hypocrite. Or he's in hellfire, because he committed a major sin. He just said hellfire. So for the Sahaba, who don't want to harm other Muslims, and who understand that the prophet spoke and he said what they need to hear. They simply closed the issue. They simply closed it. Now we know enough. I don't need to go to the prophets, a lot of cinema say a prophet of Allah. Was he a Kaffir? Was he this was he that you don't need to know that? So ask about what benefits you so there are manners to questions. So before you ask any
questions, say to yourself, do I need to know about this or not? And why?
So they are manners to questions.
And this also this hadith teaches you apprehension, fear of what came may come. So it negates arrogance, and also gives person hope. So in the sense of a righteous person, you can never look at what you're doing and say, This is it.
I'm guaranteed Jinnah.
Because you do not know how all of this will end.
And only when you know how that will end and you never know only then can you be secure.
So if your end is La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, then Al Hamdulillah, that is a great end, if your end is you're doing something pleasing to Allah and then you die, then that is a good end. But if a person is doing something good, and then they abandon that, and they do the opposite and diet like that, it tells you that the good that they were doing was missing something, what was it missing?
Maybe it's loss, sincerity, maybe if loss, maybe there was no sincerity in it. Maybe there was a hidden sin that that person just kept to himself, and did not treat and it continued to grow until it defeated him. And so he abandoned faith. Maybe he tempted himself. Maybe he accepted fitna maybe maybe maybe there are a lot of things that could be a play, but at this particular moment, if Allah had
guided you to do something good, you should be pleased with the fact that Allah had guided you but also worried about what will happen tomorrow and the day after or the day after, how will I die? So part of the things that you should ask Allah azza wa jal is national cartina.
To have a beautiful end, have a beautiful death, death upon the Quran, the Sunnah death upon Islam, that the last thing that you would say is that either in Allah, that Allah who would maintain your Eman until the end, that Allah azza wa jal will not let the shaytaan attack you or not let whatever your weaknesses you have, grow and defeat you.
So it does give you fear of Allah azza wa jal and negates arrogance. You can go to HUD, you can give us a car, but you say yeah, I'll accept from me. And you hope that this will continue to be the case until you die. Well, Edina you tuna Murata Wakulla Boom wodgina
To those who give what they give and their hearts are apprehensive, so I shadow the Allahu Ana, as the prophets of Allah Allah He was sitting them who are those people? Are they the sinners? He says no, they are the righteous who give, and they're afraid that is not going to be accepted from them. So the righteous and those who have reached a certain level of righteousness Taqwa their fear is a horror team. What will happen with the our team what will happen my when I want to die, so everything that they do, they hope with Allah azza wa jal that it would maintain that momentum. And they know that tofield that success is in the hands of Allah as soldier, it gives hope also for
those who may be sinful.
Not false hope,
or false wishes, but hope that a person could be the doing doing the actions of the people of hellfire. But there is something good in them.
There's something good in them. They love Allah, the love is profit. Somebody was selling them. They make do somebody need to offer them something, there's something there. And then they enter Jannah because towards the end of their life, they change. Or maybe people's perception. People look at him and they say, he's not a good person. But between him and Allah azza wa jal, there is something and Allah is pleased with him, and he goes to Jannah. And at the end, he sets a lot he will send them in the mail merge will be how Artemia indeed deeds are by their conclusions. So whoever says La Ilaha illa Allah and it ends like that. Allah as a Jew will give him Jana and can ask Rocchetta Mihaela
ala in Allah the halal Jana, if your last thing that you say before your death is La ilaha illallah you will enter Jannah now, is it easy to say La ilaha illAllah? At the end of your life? No.
So how do you get ready for it?
By living it now.
Because think to yourself? This person? Let's assume that he was Muslim.
Okay, when he got injured, what happened to him? You panicked?
And when you panic, what did he do? He killed himself. Now you may say to yourself or think to yourself, Well, I mean a death, I'll have the presence of mind and the strength of heart. I'll c'est la ilaha illallah, but you're going to be panicking.
Or if something else happens, you may deviate like that person deviated and do something that you will regret. What is the thing that's gonna hold your heart in place? To be it will call the steadfastness, the stability of the heart, what is the thing that is going to hold your heart in place? Similarly, also to those who have heard the statement of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, this person is in hellfire next to them it didn't make like how can I reconcile this what is the thing that is going to make you believe the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, even when your senses are against it,
it's not easy to have faith, even when you're being challenged. So the thing that will keep it in place is Iman is stuck well right now.
Right? So that when something heavy comes later, you will be able to carry it you know, like how you go to the gym and exercise. So that when you actually need to carry something heavy, you can carry it.
So when you train yourself now and you lean on Allah zodion And you asked for his support, and you acknowledge your own weakness, but you keep asking Allah to preserve your faith. When something catastrophic unexpected happens.
Allah azza wa jal will hold your heart in place, and it will not shake
and you will be able to withstand that test. But if there is a flaw in the heart, you will panic.
And an easy simple example is that you think that you're patient. I think I'm patient, I'm thinking I'm a strong person, then all of a sudden, you lose your job. What happens to you, you panic, right?
Where is money? Where is Where is money going to come from? How will I live? How will I pay my rent? What is going to happen to make you panic?
So where does that come from? Because the heart is not ready for it where as a person whose Iman is strong, he could lose his job. Yes, it will challenge him but he will come back soon to say Allah will provide in early low in LA Roger and so that return is quick. So a person who is injured
like that person
and it hurts
and death or suicide is a quick and quick solution.
What is going to stop you from committing so
recognizing that this is something that if you do, may Doom you when you meet Allah azza wa jal. So if the fear of Allah is greater than the fear of that unknown next day or two or three, you're not going to kill yourself.
You'll be patient, until Allah is the one who decides to take over your soul.
Or you're not panic when you lose a loved one or you're not going to panic when you lose your job, source of income. Why? Because you always fall back on to Allah is there. But you have to have that in your heart for it to make sense. Otherwise, you'd be looking in your heart and around you for support. And it's not there because you have not built it.
You have not practiced it. And similar to that, is that doubt that some Muslims had the Prophet Allah sent him said he's in hell. How could that be? So if you don't have Iman, you may doubt the Quran.
You may doubt Muhammad sallahu wa salam, unless you do what unless your Eman is strong enough that you say, I'll reexamine what I understand. I'll reexamine my eyes and ears and not doubt the Quran and Sunnah. At least I'll suspend judgment and say what I've seen and what I heard is questionable. But what Allah has said and what his prophets have said or not, I'll believe in this. And I'll search for confirmation for the other until I find it like that man. Because that meant to him, okay, the Prophet said, something must be true. What I'm seeing doesn't fit, what is missing. So you investigate.
Now you don't always need to investigate. Some things are beyond investigation, but that man was able to because that man was in front of him.
He investigated, pursued and he saw
in front of him that he had killed himself. And he said, sadaqa Rasul Allah, He spoke the truth. There's no way that you could have known about this, you know, unless you're a prophet of Allah, and if you believe that he's a prophet of Allah, then his knowledge goes beyond what you see, say, and beyond what you have experienced. So for instance, in one of those other Hadith
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told Ali and I be told about the Allahu Anhu that you will be fighting a particular sect that is called Al Hajjaj. And assign among them is that you are there is going to be among them a man and he looks like this, this this. So on, I don't even know if you thought it Pharrell harati, this is when he was a Khalifa, or the Allahu Anhu. And among the dead, he said, look for the smell that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me about, they go and they look for him among the dead, they come back and they said, we couldn't find a man with that description. He said, Go again and look for him, the prophet spoke the truth, just look better, deeper.
And they went, and they looked again, and he was under another man. So they extracted him like took him out, and it fit the description of the profits a lot. He was in love. And he said, mica rasool Allah, the Prophet or seldom did not lie. He was there, he knows that he's there.
So if you believe Muhammad sallahu wa salam, you are going to follow him even at times when you don't fully and fully understand. But ask Allah for that understanding, Allah will grant you that understanding. And other also part of some of the benefits of this hadith is that
if people's perception is wrong, don't trust their praise.
That is, they may look at you and think that you're of the people of Jana. And if you're going to have an image of yourself, which is a reflection of what they're saying, You are deceiving yourself, because their judgment is flooded.
And if you're going to its opposite is true. Their judgement of you is flawed when they think that you're of the people of hell. And their judgment is erroneous is based on you know, false evidence is based on a lack of information. But what is important is that you can't look at them and say, what you think of me is right, and what you think of me, is my end. That's not true. So that's why they say, don't let the praise of people deceive you, you know your Self best. They know the best about you, right? And why do people know the best about us? Because that's what we show them.
That's what we show them. No one is going to go out or come out of his house wearing all of his flaws saying look at my mistakes, no one will conceal so they see the best of you so they judge you based
On the best of you, but you know the worst of you. So don't let their phrase their assessment deceive you. Right. And you know what the statement of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu
when he said Allama, Janney here on May Allah known
work fairly Mallya Anna Moon water to Earth, if need be Maya Kowloon when somebody praised him. He said, Yeah, Allah, don't hold me responsible for what they say, and forgive what they do not know and make me better than what they say.
I don't mean, forgive me for what they're saying that if they're saying something that is excessive, forgive me for that.
And forgive all you but don't hold me accountable for it. And forgive me for the things that are hidden that they don't know.
And make me better than what they're saying. That is a beautiful day, that frees you from people's praise and assessment. Of course, you want to have a good reputation, but at the same time not be enslaved by it alone.
So in the medina Rubalcaba team,
again, just to emphasize here, and I know I mean, I've repeated this but because it's important, how something ends tells you about how it started and how it was in the middle of it. If a Salah has a floss in the beginning of floss in the middle, it's likely to have a floss at the end. If a person has sincerity beginning and middle, he is likely to continue with that sincerity at the end of a person is his righteous in the beginning and middle he's likely to continue that righteousness at the end if something is flawed in the beginning and middle that flaw will show itself clearly at the end
clearly at the end and that's why the how it in the end of everything revealed that the reveal the nature of our deeds and the nature of our lives will love
the following chapter chapter this is number 33 baboon and Ursula Torah Hutton Minh hola de su is a solitude being away from people solitude is comfort and relief from bad company. So that's the title that Buhari or himolla gave. And under that
heading, he said, or he narrated Rahim Allah to Hadith.
Someone comes to the messenger SallAllahu synonyme says yellow suit Allah He O Messenger of Allah au NASCI higher who are the best or who is the best of people? So they're asking who is the best? Right? And that is an Arabi. A Bedouin Nomad comes to the prophets I send them Oh Prophet Allah, who is the best of people. So he said, Sal, Allah hottie was in a module on Jaya had the BNF see him early. It says a person who made jihad with himself with his self and with his wealth. What did you learn fish that had been Mina Shahabi, Abu Dora Jolla, the owners, I mean Cherie, and a man who is in a valley, in a valley of valleys, you know, something that is between two mountains, a path
between two mountains. He shared with me in a Shahab he in that valley, he worships Allah, and he protects people from his evil keeps away from protecting evil people with his evil.
So in response to the question, Who is the best the prophets of Allah Sydenham gave two types of people. The first is one who does what? Jihad
jihad with itself and you had with his wealth. So that is a person who is active in the middle of people, talking to them, advising them commanding good, forbidding evil,
and where it needs to. He does jihad, he does jihad with his money.
And he does jihad with his body. So he's in the midst of it.
The second one is a person who had withdrawn from people that's a loser that solitude he withdrew from people if he should have been MENA Shut up is in a valley
meaning away from people what does he do in that valley?
Yeah, with his worshipping Allah, that's the reason why he's there. Yeah, Buddha, Allah is worshiping Allah. Why are the Anessa mean Shari? He, he is protecting people from his evil, meaning he doesn't harm anybody.
That is the second best. Now, why was the first the very best? And that's why he comes first. Right who is the best he says Raja Raja Harada. Because that person who is a Mujahid does two things, reforms himself, and he reforms other people, teaches himself and teaches other people and that is the greatest benefit for those who can do that.
As long as you can be around people, and you can teach and it could
be your family could be your friends, it could be your neighbors, then that's the best. You're trying to be patient and you can add patience. It tried to be kind and you can find kindness. You go to the masjid and you take people to the masjid.
You're spreading righteousness as much as you can. And yes, that's jihad. And as long as you are surviving, and you are winning, then the you are among the best.
You're struggling, but you're among people. The second category is someone who's practicing this solitude. This is someone who couldn't do what the first person is doing, who couldn't do that Jihad kid and fix himself and fix others.
So the option is either he is in the midst of people and he gets corrupted.
He's cannot protect himself from evil, or he withdraws.
And when he withdraws, he's better than when he's among people.
Because he could withdraw and what be lost. And you can go to a village, you can go you know, to the wilderness and lose your faith. Forget about Allah for because no one around you to remind you, there is no event there is no salah, there is no halacha there is nothing. So a person like that withdrawing into the wilderness with there's no one around him. He will lose himself and he loses faith. It's not allowed to do that. But this person is strong enough that he has enough knowledge. He has enough practice. He has enough devotion, that when he moves away from people, he can worship Allah azza wa jal, and at the same time doesn't harm anybody around that. The Prophet sallallahu
wasallam has praised. But this should happen only when, right? That person had given up on the fact that he could be around people.
And that person doesn't have other obligations. He doesn't have family, he doesn't have people that he should take care of. And also, you shouldn't withdraw so much that he does not attend any salah or does not attend any Joomla does not get any reminders moving away that that is excessive. But there are certain circumstances especially towards the end of time, as the next Hadith will explain where that could be justified. But in the world that we live in today. What you need from this head with this particular hadith is you could be one of two people, one who tries to fix himself and fix others and that is the best if you can.
If you're unable to do this, then at least take care of yourself and don't harm other people. So those are the two levels that we're talking about. We don't recommend to people at this moment that you move to the wilderness or move to the jungle and worship Allah Allah. You haven't reached that stage yet. Although there will be times when that will be the best thing to do.
Evidence is the next Hadith
where he sits Allah audio send them yet to the NASA man on
Cairo media Raju little Muslim Elijah annum yes about Obeah Shah FLG baddie OMA waka I'll call three. If a Ruby Dini humanoid Phaeton, he says there's going to come a time upon people, that the best money that a man will have will be sheep, meaning he will be a shepherd. And that will be sheep yet but Obeah Shah FLG belly he will take them to the mountaintops and where the rain drops. If you're Ruby Dini, he may not fit and he's running away saving his religion from Phaeton.
So, there is enough fitna for that person, that he abandons society altogether.
And what is his money? What is left? The only thing that he has random sheep, cattle animals,
because that makes him sufficient.
Right? It produces meat. It produces milk. He doesn't have to interact with people. He doesn't have to depend on anybody else. It is him and Allah zo did and the rain and grass. That's it. And is this an easy life by the way? Absolutely not? Absolutely not. So in general, when you're going to withdraw from fitna, you are going to be challenged.
What are you going to separate yourself from temptation, you are going to be challenged and one of the things that we want to learn from this hadith is that it is incumbent it is necessary to separate yourself from the fitna. But first of all, let's understand what is the kind of time where this is justified.
So, the time that the gel for instance, you know, when the imposter Messiah, the imposter, the gel descends, and he takes control of almost every place on this earth except
replaces Mecca, Medina and eliquids.
You can fight him, what do you do? You run away from him? Where do you run away to the mountaintops, you hide, because you can't fight him.
There are other instances, right where there will be so much fitna where you're afraid, like, let's suppose in a city, hypothetically, or in a country, people start killing each other. So if you're in that city, you either gonna be killed, or you have to kill someone, what's the best thing to do? Leave?
That's the fitna that we're talking about, or in a city or in a country where they're going door to door, especially if you're Muslim. You either gonna reject Islam or we will kill you, either you're going to do this or we will kill you, what should you do? Leave run away, blown away to the jungle to the desert to this and that, that is the type of thing that the prophets a lot he was enemies talking about. And as you get closer and closer to the day of judgment more, and this will happen, that a person will need to run away to save his religion. And by the way, he's not running to save a way to save his life.
That's not what the Prophet said, he's not wanting to save his life, or to save his family or to save his kids. Although all these things are valid, he says, save his religion.
And that tells you that that's something precious for that person.
And I mean, Allah, Allah didn't make religion, something that precious for us that you actually would move to save it.
Because we would definitely move to save money. Right? Definitely, right. Like if you're thinking of buying a house or you're renting and you discover that this is a better, cheaper neighborhood, what happens?
immediately move, right, why not better investment. But when it comes to faith and religion and Islam, we're not as motivated. You don't move for the sake of faith. Or we get closer to the masjid or there's a better Muslim community or you will be a away from bad influences. You don't really consider moving for the sake of Allah asserted, but this man had made the sacrifice and this type of life is difficult. You could imagine that that person, if he were to say yes, maybe to that fitna, whatever that fitna, may be, he could stay in his house, he could eat good food, he could be around his friends, he could have luxury around and not have to live like this sheep that he has to travel
with every day. Maybe it trains maybe it doesn't maybe has enough milk or not. It's a rough life. But if for the sake of Allah as though did he does it? Right.
that's the title of the chapter and Ursula to Ratterman hola to so because in that solitude, he protects himself from bad influences and bad people and preserves his faith. Now, as I said, take what we take from that hadith that you need, and we need to put a distance between us and Phaeton. We may not do what he did, because we don't need to do that at this moment. But we always need to put a distance between us and fitna. So consider what is the fitna in your life that is taking you away from Allah, what is the thing that is haram that is invading your home? And see, did you and can you put a distance between you and it?
So if it is something you visit online?
Can I block that website? Can I stop visiting it? Can I block the times where I'm more low prone to visiting that website so that I don't see it? If it's a place in the city? Can I avoid that place so that I put a distance between me and it not only a distance between me and it between me and two other neighborhoods that will lead to that place?
If it's a person, can I put a distance between me and that person? If it's whatever it is, that is bringing you closer to the shaytaan that is a fitna could you distance yourself from it even if you had to sacrifice something? Even if you had to sacrifice some Halal to protect yourself from the Haram it's worth it.
So distancing yourself from Phaeton is necessary and those are the two Bahaman hola de su that is solitude when it protects you from evil company is better than evil company.
Now not everybody can withstand solitude, but the scholars do advise some solitude as long as it is beneficial.
So you still need to attend gym all right. You still need to attend the gym. Tending study circles is good. Being around family is a great balancing act have
In French to talk to is comforting to the mind and body. Right? Playing sports is good, right? Because he's good to spend energy, hobbies are good, all of that, to have a balanced life it's necessary. But when do you need some solitude? If the company is about solitude?
If the influence is bad solitude
or also you need some time alone between you and Allah xojo. For what?
For thicker for the, for Quran, for simply just to have some clarity on mind, you can simply be or demand noise, I must have noise I must have a must be always be occupied, occupied, occupied. No, you have to be comfortable enough to be with Allah azza wa jal. And as long as that is beneficial, great. When you find that your solitude is causing harm, then you have to stop it. So solitude that causes harm is what you set for yourself and you find that the shaitaan is playing with your head,
then you should do what stop your solitude. You know, go to your family, go to your friends, z the Quran, be in public. Just be in public so that you don't do something that you regret, that is sinful, or those thoughts that are coming and knocking on your heart and saying you this bad thing, that bad thing you're bad this bad. Stay stop. So solitude is good, but with moderation. And some people you know can do more of it and some people can do less of it, but you should be the final judge. And if you don't know ask, if I'm is what I'm doing right is I'm doing wrong should I do more of this less of that? Ask An Allah azza wa jal if you truly ask him Allah azza wa jal will guide you
the following one is Babel or of El Amarna. This is the lifting or taken away of Amana. Amana is trustworthiness for the person to be trusted.
To practice it, that's a manner right?
And he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there are two Hadith here.
so he said Salatu was Salam. Either Abuja Al Amana fronto the Russa A says if trustworthiness is no longer there, then wait for the day of judgment. If trustworthiness is no longer present, meaning you can't trust people
wait for the day of judgment they say how is it not there? How will it be lost Oh prophets of Allah.
Allah either Osney that Amaroo Isla very early from tabula rasa, a set of matters of authority and power are given to those who do not deserve it. Then wait for the day of judgment.
So, Amana, the lifting of Amana, taken away of Amana is one of the signs of the Day of Judgment. And this here is a lolly was syndrome when he explains either it was neither if matters of authority and power are given to those who do not deserve it. That's an explanation of it. That's an instance of it. That's something that you could see.
So what does it mean power and authority are given to those who are not worthy of it. Now, who becomes the king, somebody who's qualified or unqualified, unqualified, the prince unqualified, the president unqualified, Prime Minister unqualified.
So what does that mean means that the standards are upside down. That's the kind of the nature of the Day of Judgment is that things are wrong.
If they're on their heads, nothing is right. So when you start seeing that those who are ready have the position or not given that position, and those who are unworthy of that position, or those who get that position because people like them, or that king gives it to those whom he likes, and these people are just like him unqualified. If you've under that's the case, then things are going in the wrong direction. And if things are going in the wrong direction, it's overall telling you that you're coming closer and closer to the day of judgment, because if things are okay, you're far from the Day of Judgment, when things become worse and worse, and things turn on their head. Right is
wrong, Wrong is Right. Right. Then the Day of Judgment is approaching. And this thing has happened, you know, a long time ago, a long time ago, things were given to those who are not worthy of it. But the more that happens of it, the more that you see that the day of judgment is approaching and you could see more of that today. The righteous the good people, those who are qualified are denied these
physicians and those who rise to the top politically and also in terms of fame or those who possess nothing to give,
and they're clueless. So you look at it and you say, if they continue to run the world the way that they are running it today, they'll destroy it, and then eventually, it will be destroyed. So here sal Allahu Allahu wa Salam is saying that the lifting of a man of the disappearance of Amana is one of the signs of the Day of Judgment. And in the following Hadith and it's a longer Hadith. The Prophet dolly send them explains how that happens and that it is a gradual process of losing trustworthiness from the heart as you lose your iman
and that Eman and Amana are connected, and they should be connected. So he said, This is who they for who narrates this hadith he said, the prophets of Allah how to send them told us about two things. I've seen one of them and I'm waiting for the other he told us the following. He said in El Amanat and so that future three Kaluga region he says Amana trustworthiness was placed in the middle of men's hearts in the middle of people's hearts, meaning that in your fitrah you have a man
in your fitrah how Allah created you you love Amana, isn't it?
At naturally right you love those whom you can trust. You seek them you want them sits in your fitrah okay
family mominul Quran family Momina sooner than people after you know Allah gave them the fifth law of Amana and he put it also Iman in their hearts then they've learned the Quran and learn the Sunnah. Meaning they had this trust and the could be trusted. And when they learned the Quran that was enhanced when the Lord the Sunnah, that was even enhanced further. So the Quran and Sunnah came and they solidified the fitrah. So a person who was trustworthy before Islam with Islam, he becomes what? completely trustworthy because Allah pushes him to doubt towards that and the prophets of Allah we send them recommends it and he's afraid of punishment, if he doesn't do it, so we both have
your fitrah and your revelation they meet together to support that good character of being trustworthy meaning that if you say something, you do it, somebody trusts you to deceive them something you do it you promise you fulfill the promise. Nobody suspects you. Your Word is gold. You say tomorrow it's tomorrow right?
And that again stems from your iman and we may visit this inshallah well had nothing. Yeah. And he said who they for and he told us about how it will be taken away. So he said he anom will Raja Noma for talks about all manner to me and Colby if I have him do a thorough haemophilia I thought he looked at he says one a person goes to sleep and Amanda will be taken away from his heart and there will be a trace left
Mithila on his heart, like a small trace that will leave on his heart meaning some Anna will be taken but some will be left and it will leave a trace on his heart because it was taken away
from my enamel Noma then he sleeps again for totobobo that Amanda will be taken more firepower Atharva Mifflin majorly it will be leave a trace like a blister. Kojima in Russia who allegedly fnfvf Dr. Tara Holman Tiburon what a Sufi che. It becomes like a blister. Full I mean, it looks like it's full. It's a bubble, but inside it's empty. And he keeps here Salatu was Salam an example Cambrian like ember that rolls on your leg and it leaves blisters it has in it pisode as in it liquid but it's just empty really? Okay it's just shape but there's nothing in it
for you soon NASA we had to buy our own fra i had a new deal Amana so in the morning people sell and buy but no one of them is does that with trustworthiness or with Amana? All right, for your car do and it will be said in a few Benny Poulin in Rajon Amina in the tribe of so and so is someone that you can trust this is how scarce it is. And so on. So this is someone that you can trust while you're caught earlier gradually Mahakala Houma of Rafa Hua magic
and someone will be praised and they will say about a man how intelligent and wise he is. How eloquent he is how strong he is, well mafia called behemoth cohabitee hardily min Iman and he does not have a mustard seed of Eman in his heart
right pada Khalifa now says well look at that ah there he is a man on one way or barely a cucumber yet he says there was a time once upon a time. I don't care who am I sell and buy from? If I am buying or selling to a Muslim his Islam will propel him
To be honest, will make him honest. And if I'm selling or buying from a Christian, the one who has authority over him will make sure that he is honest. But for today, I will only sell and buy from so and so and so and so. So to who they differ even at his time, or the Allahu Anhu could witness the difference in Amana.
the prophets Allah Allah is sitting them going back to this hadith and I know it's a long heavy so I'm gonna try Inshallah, to summarize the lesson that is in it, that Allah had given people a man and a man and a man by the way, the route is the same, okay is similar. And when the root of something is similar in the Arabic language, it tells you that they are connected. If you have Eman, you have a manner. So unmarried women, no men, I mean, who knows so I'm wired to him are all the same. He says a more men, the prophets Allah Selim defined it in one Hadith is all people feel secure when it comes to you. I mean, when it feels secure, about their wealth and honor when it
comes to you, meaning you're not going to take their wealth, and you're not going to attack their honor. mean you can be trusted.
So why are you trusted?
Because Allah as origin is watching. Right? What makes you a mean is what Allah is watching. And I know that if I attack this person or take something of theirs, Allah will hold me responsible if I lie to them, Allah holds me responsible, if I sell something and cheat them, I'll have to answer that in the dunya. And in the Euro, if I escape it in the dunya, one, escape it in the euro, but you also actually will see it in the dunya as well when you cheat. So I can't lie, I can't cheat, if I promise, I'm not better fulfill my promise. Because if I don't, that's the sign of hypocrisy. So you find that all of iman is pushing you to be a trustworthy person, an honorable person, but then he
sets a lot he was setting him that Amanda will be taken away. The why is a minute taken away because of what lack of what Aima
so when you start losing your email, the Quran does not matter to you and the Sunnah doesn't matter to you and the hereafter does not matter to you. You could lie right when you sell, and you could lie when you buy and you can lie when you repair things and you can lie when you promise who cares? Because now your motive is what I want to make money and I'm not afraid of anybody or anything unless somebody checks unless there's a law and unless you know the law means the law is strict enough strong enough and somebody is enforcing it but otherwise I don't really care. I only want to make money so there is no rocky there's no watcher so he said it's becomes gradual. You sleep
or a day passes or a month passes and your eagerness to be trustworthy decreases and it leaves a small trace and you don't feel it
and then sometimes the time passes and more of their mana is taken away and when the one that time when it's gone. It leaves a trace like a blister.
And the funny thing about a blister it's that according to the description of the Hadith data hormone difficu it's swollen but it doesn't have anything of use inside of it. So is a person who is untrustworthy
big but he's what? Empty? Okay, we have the best merchandise here I just got it you know Wallahi it cost me this and that big. The speech. Okay the pretense the claims. Like if you are unfortunate enough to watch advertisement today, all of it is like this. Well lo LM except you know, a little bit maybe that is probably an exception but all of it big claims about this cures this heals this will make you happy you really need this big big claims and when people talk about themselves they exaggerate and it's all of this is like a blister. What's Inside it's empty Tullahoma taffeta you see blown up while establishing there's nothing in it. So he said for us to be who knows we have to
buy your own. So people sell and buy no one stressing the other. This person is lying and that person is lying. That this will Allah He cost me this and that I'm not making any profit. This person will lie I don't have money will lie this both of them are lying. No one trusts the other. And it becomes a game right becomes a game you know him that he's lying and he knows that you're lying. And no one trusts the other person. And for your call to interview Benny Fulani and Raju and Amina it will be said like people will be transferring to each other in the land of so and so in the tribe of so and so there is a trustworthy person. This is like if you want to hire someone today I
I can you just go and hire anybody?
Okay, I want to I want a mechanic. Can you just go to any mechanic?
Or I want a contractor any contractor?
No, you ask, Can I trust because I know that most of them may not be I may not be able to trust them. So where so and so in that that area or in that area, He can be trusted that's like what he's talking about. In the field any fallen in that area? That person you can trust means that the rest? No,
you can't. So a man has lost who had a eukaryote originally. And someone who will be praised mean who is praising him people are praising him Masha Allah this person is so wise, masha Allah this person look how well he speaks mashallah, this person look how strong he is Masha Allah, Masha, Allah, Masha, Allah and he said, sallAllahu sallam, he doesn't have a mustard seed of a man in his heart. So again, people's praise, because the standards have been corrupted, who's good and who's bad,
who's good and who's bad. If it's according to people, it's a person who doesn't have a man in his heart.
Whereas the person who has the man in his heart may not be as eloquent and may not be as strong as this person. But he's a good person, inside of Allah as a surgeon, but two people he's not.
So again, you cannot trust someone's praise, if that person is not worthy of giving praise
is not worthy of giving praise.
That if a person who's praising is a scholar is a righteous person who looks as if the way that Allah wants you to look at it, then yes, go ahead.
Okay, believe that. But if it is not, it comes from a corrupted standard, you cannot really believe it. And so you see, even the world today, those who are praised and celebrated are those who have nothing in them to give, and those who actually have something or those who are ignored. But again, that's because Amana had been lost, and power and authority and attention is given to those who do not deserve it. And he's then finally he said,
all the Allahu Anhu. He said, There was once upon a time, I didn't ask whom I would buy and sell from, because I could trust everybody.
Like, at the time of the prophets a lot, he was setting them at the time of Abu Bakar. At the time of worth, money doesn't matter. Imagine a society where that is the case, where you would go and buy bread by bar, leave a rent somebody, I mean, hire somebody to do something, and all of them can be trusted. Imagine that, no one's gonna gouge you, no one's gonna lie to you and tell you it cost me so much. And it didn't inflate the price. No one is gonna lie to you.
But then he reached that stage in time, what are the hola Anwar, he said, Now, I will only deal with this and that.
This and that, will lo Allah. There's one single Hadith left, but I will leave that in sha Allah to the to next week in sha Allah just to see if you have questions regarding anything that we've just said, Article lofi.
anything you would want to add?
Now, so as a good question about like a law fix. So the question is the one who commits suicide does he go to jahannam forever. So a person is Muslim, and they commit suicide they've committed so committing suicide is an act that is a major sin can be right. And any act that is a major sin
could take the person to hellfire. Or it could be forgiven, that it's a person could do other things that counterbalance outweigh that big sin that he did, or a person may not be able to do that. And so in the scale of deeds, on the day of judgment, He will have more bad deeds than good deeds. When that happens, two to two things could happen or three things could happen. Allah azza wa jal could see that he has more bad deeds, decided to take him to hellfire. So he'd be purified. And once he does his time, he comes out and he goes to Jannah so if you commit a major sin, only major sin you're not a Kaffir. You don't stay in hellfire forever. So Allah Azza could decide to punish him
for some time and then take him out of hellfire put him in Jannah or Allah azza wa jal could decide to forgive him.
or Allah as if you could accept the intercession of someone who comes and say, Allah forgive him. And Allah will accept that and he doesn't enter Jen. I'm sorry, hellfire, or he spends a little bit of time and didn't take him out. But just to answer your question, if a person commits a major sin
He does not he's Muslim. He doesn't spend eternity in hell. He has to come out of it. And a suicide is a major sin. Allah
does answer your question right
says that the Prophet was given
actually, we all know that, but
was a couple that are actually the alarming for me showing
when he chose to fight with
I mean, it's he was hurt. He was, you know, a hidden, but here's the
final stroke. He's the one who did that. Joseph take that stuff. Right. So this
clearly shows that this was all they had a few.
Right? Right. So yeah, the comment of the brother of Veronica Luffy, is that there's also a lesson that hadith about the madman killing himself, about the Destiny about the other of Allah azza wa jal, and then how Allah had destined all of this, that it was going to happen. Of course, that does not negate as he said, the freewill that that man had, he is the one who decided to go to battle. He is the one who decided to fight and he is the one who eventually decided to kill himself and end his life. But it does tell you about how Allah has Zota decrease things, and that the Prophet sallallaahu Salam, as he said, he had a glimpse of what's going to happen and he told about us about
what's going to happen. So it's, it's in a sense important here to see the power of Allah azza wa jal and knowledge of Allah azza wa jal that how he knows what is going to happen before it happens, and he informs his prophets Allah Allah Azza wa sallam at the same time right? The fact that that man did what he did he was enforced in any way to do it yet he did it because he wanted to do it otherwise he would not be responsible to do something he was forced to do. So that summarizes
yeah, I've got Perforce apps. Absolutely. And you could see it there because and many things that we do you could see that you could stop or you could proceed, you could end or you can begin so you
Yeah, so you see that you could do that the only time where you would know that this had to happen is after the fact after the fact you would know Allah decreed it this way but before you even sense it in yourself that I have a choice now I could go to work or stay home I could go
to Masjid or stay home you see feel that you have a choice and at that moment you know you have the power as far as you know you have the power to go either way after that is only that it's revealed to you that it's going to happen this way or not that way
now of course, of course, there is a cause right there is a cause it's tied to a cause so you decide you go to get into your car, you drive to the masjid or you're lazy you step back and you stay at home is always connected of course to things that you do or things you fail to do alone
No, no no no no not at
else after that
how can you trust repeat that bit louder a little bit? How can you trust someone?
Okay, how can you trust someone right? And know that he has a manner like So trust him with a deposit?
Or you don't know that person? So how can you trust him to know that he's worthy of that deposit?
that you give to them
you'd have to have enough experience with that person. So that you know that he has enough faith and he has enough integrity and he has enough honesty and only knows if you know who only happens if you know him very well. You can't assume just because he comes to the masjid that that person is going to be trustworthy or just because he has some knowledge that he's going to be trustworthy but you have to have some experience with them you know that he's a turkey you know how he lives you see it in his character and eventually if you need to trust Him you based make it based on that on those kinds of on that evidence similar to you know, an Amana that you find
that you decide that this plumber contractor Doctor same thing How Why would you give your body to a doctor okay because he must have a man otherwise you would never surrender your body to him. So you make the best judgment he's graduated from here he has this track record there are laws to protect me this this this I can trust Alright, so that's that's how you decide based on the evidence that you collect and if you have enough of it, you can say I'm comfortable and I can trust them if not they say I can't find a person to trust
yeah you'll be judged based on what you know right when side is to Allah has to keep Zirkel Mala Hara now I will see you in Sharla next week Subhanallah behind the shadow Allah Allah and stuff
