Now he was early he was so happy he was salam. Loma Linda Nyan pharaoh now one fan of Mr. Olympia Anna was in a memorable anime
we've reached the chapter, Babu fugly. *ery the virtue of poverty and there are several a hadith in it and we have two more to go before we finish that particular Bab chapter in the book of a recap.
And the first one for today is an assault of the Allahu Anhu reporting about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said the mere Aquilina Vu sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala KeyOne in Hatta, Matt. The prophets Allah wa salam never ate on the floor table. This one is a floor table, until his death, Alma Akela HUBZone Moroccan hat and he did not eat a flattened soft bread until his death, sal Allahu Allah, he was in them. So here he is describing the life of the prophet, something that was persistent, all the way to the death of the prophets of Allah. He was in them, the first of them is the only one. He never ate on a three one, but one is, as we said, a table it's a floor table is
it in the floor, and it elevates the food up to you. So he said he never saw that, and he never ate on it. Salallahu Salam so that means that we knew what eats a lot he said it would be on the floor, the food will be on the floor. So that is a via to throw out the extreme humility from him Sal, Allahu Allah, he was a lump, what the holy and dunya and forsaking the dunya is that even that he did not have Salallahu Salam or he did not want and he did not possess and he did not want or did not want Allahu Allah. Well McCullough hubs in Morocco, he didn't eat flat and bread, several hubs and WarRock from the term itself. Rotted means it's thin, means it's a bread that had been baked,
prepared, flattened, and as you flatten it, it softens.
And even till today, there's a bread that they will call recap. Or gag in some accents, or mark oak, if you've heard of it. Soft, flat bread, which is what well prepared bread. So he did not see that Salallahu Salam during his lifetime.
So here Ennis is describing it's as if you're talking to your kids, and you say, when we were growing up, we didn't see these things.
Things that they take for granted things that they see available. But you say when we were growing up, we never saw these things. So Anna's here is describing or lo alum things that they have. For Sahaba, after the prophets, Allah Salam, and then that Iberian they could see it. But he said, you see these things that are available in your homes, that soft bread that you're eating, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not see. did not experience that that type of luxury, he did not see it. So consider here Subhan Allah, the luxury that he's talking about, compared to us today.
You don't only have a few on how many tables do we have at home, right. And you have tables that can elevate up to you right? And how many plates do you have at home and how many types of bread you can buy.
You just go to the store and you select the type of bread that suits you, and you come back home and you eat it. And after we eat, we still complain about the fact that we don't have enough whereas the profits are loose in them. He says that type of soft bread he never saw.
The benefit of these a hadith and similar a hadith that will follow is that among the benefits of them is for you to see how hard their life was, and how hard the life of the prophets of Allah Ani was in them was, but that he had Iman, nevertheless, and that if Allah azza wa jal decides to take away some of the dunya from you, it does not take away from his love for you. Because the Allah azza wa jal loved His Prophet salallahu Salam, but he did not have the dunya either Allah did not give it to him or he willingly gave it away, gave it up.
So if you experience hardship, at least you can remember and you say, well, the prophets of Allah he was in them never saw this never ate that and never experienced all of this. Yet Allah azza wa jal loved him and Allah azza wa jal favorite him
and also the benefit of that
is to know that even if you go through hardship in life, you could still manage to love Allah and to be pleased with Allah and to have trust in Him Subhana wa to Allah so your worship of Allah is not dependent on how much he gives you of the dunya that if he doesn't make me rich, if he does not give me a wife and a husband, and if he does not give me kids and, and a house and this and that, then that means I'm angry with him and he's angry with me. No, despite that hardship, you still worship and you love Allah subhanho wa Taala under the dunya is not an indication of the airfield or
a scale for the
the next one is from Aisha Radi Allahu anha. And that she's describes what happened to her after the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam. She said like a to fee and EBU OMA if you're a fee minchie Any Hakuna hoodoo cabbie Illa shot Rocha here in fear of Finley.
So he said, When the prophets Allah said, I'm passed away, I didn't have in my home anything that any living being can eat, except some shave some barley feel a Finley on a shelf, or in a cupboard. So the only thing in the house
again, you need to actually imagine this, the whole house, just a small house. But the whole house had nothing in it except what
shave barley as the only thing that was left, no other type of food available, but barley.
So she said a couple Tumino, Hatha Ali said he continued to eat from it. Until, I mean, a long time has passed. And she's still eating from it, and eat from it and eat and didn't run out. audits for kill two who for funny, he said, I measured it, and it ran out.
So here, this is a Kurama for shuttle, the Allahu anha, meaning she had some barley.
And each day, she would take and cook from it the next day, the third and the fourth and the fifth. And then after some time, she doesn't tell us how many days but after some time, she thought, how long can I keep eating from that barley? And it's still it keeps giving me right. How much do I have anyway. So she takes it, she measures it. And when she does that it soon runs out.
Then there's a lesson here. So this first of all, there's an obvious cut Alma that Allah has dubbed an honor die, he showed all the Allahu Ana that as long as she was taken from it, but not weighing it. It kept giving her and kept giving her and it kept giving her and who knows maybe if she didn't weigh it, how long it will continue to give. But when she took it, and she weighed it, now she knows exactly what is in it, how much how many kilograms it was. And now since you know, it turns out
so that this call is of sudden explaining, it's difficult to move a fanny
pack and NEMAHA ishara as if it's an indication or a sign that the reason that it ran out, is because she weighed it. Otherwise, if she had left it, it would not. So they say there is benefit in this ever actually everyone that is don't look with eagerness and greed at what you have. And you weigh it with greed and concern, but rather let it be and use it. Because there will be more Baraka in it. So you don't look for instance, at sometimes it's natural to notice that you have two cartons or three cartons of milk.
But without greed, how many metal helmet how much milk do we have? Is it half? Is it one quarter? Right? How much did you drink all Hamdulillah? At least I have one left? It says don't look at it like that. How much how much barley do we have? How much we do have? How much? One bag two bags? Is it half a bag, he says don't look with such concern and what you own. Because if you weigh it, if you count, right, then it will run out quickly. Because there is no Baraka in it. But if you just look the other way, and you use it and you keep using it, they will be more Baraka in what you have.
As the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, well to see for you see the WHO ALEC is and don't count and as when you give, don't count meaning dollar $2 Right $3 Are you counting and it's hard for you to get lulled to sleep, don't count and limit what you give. Because if you do Allah will count and limit what he gives you. That if you give in abundance, Allah gives you what in abundance if you restrict your
Giving, then the giving will be restricted when it comes your way, right? And I thought maybe also another benefit, so insha Allah and Allah, this is really, I mean, for me it was an important lesson. That is, don't look with concern and greed at what you have. But let it let it be, and use it and let others in your family use it or not mine in yours, let him use it there will be more Baraka in it. And I thought maybe an added benefit in it for those who use social media if you post right? Don't look at how many likes and views and engagements you have. There'll be no Baraka in it posted if it's for Allah sake posted, and don't look back.
Right? It fits right. I think it fits Allah Allah. But if it's true, it will free you from the pressure of they liked it or didn't like it. And they will be more baraka and it will lower them.
Now, the next one, the next chapter, baboon cave, again, I shouldn't be Sal, Allahu Allah, you're sitting them was HERBIE, he went to Hawaii, him and it dunya he says, How was the living of the prophets of Allah? It was how they used to live, the Prophet and the companions, and how did they forsake the dunya? Leave it behind them not care for it, that they want to tell us how. So hear the story is the story of Abu Hurayrah. He's the narrator of the Hadith, kind of the main figure in it.
And he says about himself, he says Allah He, Lolita EDA Illa, who is swearing by Allah by saying by Allah, the One who there is no Eli, but he says he just really wants you to listen and understand what he went through. And this incident in control Itami Adobe cabbie the analog the minute jewel, he says out of hunger, I used to lie on the ground. Okay, my stomach against the ground out of hunger. They said why did he used to do this he said either because he used to faint, and he used to faint. Le Allahu Anhu out of hunger, or because he would be so hungry, he would press his stomach against the floor
against the ground, right. Explaining any and the next part of it explains it more. We're in control should do Hijra about naming a jewel. And I used to tie fasten and tie a stone around my stomach or on my stomach and then fasten it around, out of hunger.
Ye, when you're too hungry, you need something to press your stomach inward. And they say that if you are really hungry, you can stand up straight. Alright, if you are really angry like you, your stomach is really empty. You cannot stand up straight. So it was the habit of the Arabs who used to experience hunger that they would take stones, put them on their stomachs and tie something around.
And there was a hadith when
the prophets always send them came out once and he met Abu Bakr and Omar.
Abu Bakr had a stone that He had tied around his stomach Omar had a stone that He tied upon his stomach, the prophets of salaam had to
in both three, meet the three, all three were hungry, and they had to use that in order just to suppress their hunger and be able to stand up straight. So he said, I used to do this, either use the ground to press against my stomach or have a stone and wrap that around my body. I'm on my waist.
And he said well, I've got ca to Yeoman. Allah authority him under the road and I'm in and he says one of those days I sat at the path that they used to take me when people used to take from the masjid or out of the masjid or a common path that they would walk from Robert Greene Fussell to an 18 millimeter Biller, he makes the ultimate lol you should be earning. It says Abubaker passed. And I asked him about an idea from the book of Allah ISIS. I didn't ask him except so that he would feed me.
He did he did. He asked him for food.
No, right. Ken that's the honor of Abba hora. You're all the Elana. You know how hungry he was? So he sat there and a worker passes and he asked him a religious question. He said I didn't ask him a religious question to know the answer. I asked him so that after he answers that he would say what, follow me home so that he could feed him
if that's what he wanted, but he was too honorable to say please give me
Have a daddy
either to read. It's a sign that he wants to. It's an implicit request, but it's not an explicit one. So he doesn't embarrass anyone and does not demean himself. He's just asked
Allah for Murwillumbah Lee says he passed and he did not take me with them. They say why did he not? He says he didn't know. He just thought it was a question and he kept going. Or they said that he didn't have food. So that's another possibility. For mumble Robbia amorphous alto on 18 mykita Billahi masa alto Illa you should be any former Rafa Mia fan and Omar pass and I asked him a question about an Ayah from the book of Allah I only asked him so that he would take me and feed me and he didn't do that. Again for the same reasons he didn't know.
Full mama Robbie Abul Qasim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who Isabel Carson Qasim the prophets Allah lucid right by the Fatah sama Hina. Ani, he smiled when he saw me well out of the Matthew Neff CEO, Matthew OGN. He knew what was with me and what was with my face, kind of he recognized that you are hungry. He knew he knew that from him. So he smiled. So he said about here.
Okay, about here, you called him. And that is a beautiful name to call Abu Hurayrah or the Allahu unreasonable Hora era, but you call him Abba here, as a soft, sweet name is says I am here on Messenger of Allah. He says, Follow.
Follow me. While mobile further bear to further Hala faster than the unity. He says. Then he entered his house. Then I asked for permission to enter and he gave me permission. Carla forwarded the Lebanon via cada. So he found milk in a bowl.
So he said, Where's this? Where did this milk come from? They said so and so gave it as a gift to you. So and so a male or female gave it as a gift for you. He said about her. I said I'm here or messenger of Allah. He said it helped me that I had a sofa for whom Lee is his go to Allah sofa and invite them.
I will have a law says what Hello sofa have the full Islam.
The people of sofa are the guests of Islam. He says they don't have a family and they don't have money and no one to take care of. So who are the people of a sofa that are going to be invited to the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam these are migrants. They arrived to Medina. So they have no family to support them and give them presidents and they have no money and they have nothing with them. So where's the only place for them to stay? The Masjid?
The Masjid. So no residents no money, no family they saw the only state in the masjid and the prophets Allah Allah Allah wa salam.
As he explains here, either either to sadaqa Bertha, Bihar ala him if he receives a sadaqa the Prophet receives a sadhaka he channels that to them, he takes him sends it to them
what either one of me at dinner will mean her she and he doesn't eat anything, any of it. So sadhaka the prophets Allah Salam does not take ye either to Hadiya to in Orissa, la la hemo Casa Minha Ashoka home fee
and if he receives a gift, he will send some of that to them and He will keep some to himself. So a gift he will be a partner in that but a sadhaka will be entirely given by a given to them. So he says invite the people of a sofa
so he says for Sir Any Dalek he says that bothered me
that request from the profits it seldom bothered me sir Annie that for her to Omaha that Lebanon had a sofa it says what how is this milk gonna satisfy all the people have a sofa going to a Haku Anna and we'll see I mean how the Lebanese shoulder button at the Power BI says I was more worthy to get some of their milk at least one sip that will what nourish me Give me strength
for either a moron if upon two or three him and then after that I can bring them and I can serve and I can give to them. But first I and then what? them because I'm here already. And I am so desperately hungry. Right? Well not I certainly had no one even had a Leben but if you invite all of them, will I get any of it? That's what he's saying to himself. But he says Willem yocan Minta Atilla he will talk it rasuluh he but but I had no option except to obey Allah and obey His messengers to the Lord he was right
Subhan Allah and Abu Hurayrah did he like that command so much? No. But he followed it right.
And so Allah's commands and the prophets, Allah Salam commands are not always going to make sense to you by the way, like like here you will see the outcome you may already know it, they're not always going to make sense to you. And they're not always going to be appealing.
But then if you say to yourself as he said, I have to follow Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu wasallam and you put their command first, you will get the best of this dunya and in the Akira, even though this is not to your liking
you with me? And he not every single command that you will find in the Quran and the Sunnah you say? There's something I like.
Some of these things are hard. Some of these things are difficult. Some of these things are things you do not understand. Some of these things might be things that you say they bother me, but if you follow you'll understand. So what is what happens? Well, if I take the home further out to home for Akbar Rufus the other no four I think in Allah home, he invited them they entered the house, while huduma Jalisa home then that then they sat down. And the prophets Allah Sillim Cydia, Abba here to the bakery rasool Allah, he said take and give them to drink. Khalifa tool pada. So I took this bowl and I keep an effigy out to Lt here module for shabu, hot, dry summer, yada, yada yada today I would
give it to one man, he would drink from it until he is full, then he would give it back to me. Then I give him the next person and he will drink from it until he is full and he gives it back to me and so on and so on. Had 10 days to Elon Nibi until I mean a fed everybody everybody drank until the prophets Allah wa salam was left and everybody was full. So I gave it to the Prophet sallahu sin upon the father who Allah ad. See, he took this ball and he put it on his hand. Then he looked at me and smiled and he said about him.
It says if he's telling you, I know what you're thinking, right? And it's coming your way I know what you're thinking. So it says I'm here are prophets of Allah. He says about 30 to an hour and I in your left. He said, you just spoke the truth or messenger of Allah. He said sit down and drink.
So he says for CA two for sheriff two I sat down and I drank for coalition. He says drink like when he stops, it says drink so he would drink from Azalia coalition ability to drink, no drink. No, keep drinking, had the culture until I sit down with the batha will Hakima do the homeless liquor is by the one who had sent you the truth. I can't fit any more inside. That's it. I'm like very full. That's it. Allah for any hurry, show me hydrosol show them the ball. Allah for heartlight Okada color for Hamid Allah He praised Allah azza wa jal, he said Bismillah will shed evil favela and he drank what has remained in it.
So obviously this is a what do you call it? A mirage is a fever from Allah azza wa jal, his prophets, Allah Allahu Allah who earlier was in them that all of them drank from the same bowl, and all of them God full drinking from that.
But the baraka here, is the baraka of listening to the prophets of Allah, Allah Who Ali was, had a boo Hooray era. And he would never do this, but had Abu Hurayrah decided, no, I will not listen, he would have missed all of this.
But he said, I listen to Allah and a listen to His Messenger SallAllahu wasallam. And he saw this miracle with his own eyes. And seeing something like this increases your Eman tremendously and increases your certainty in the prophethood of Muhammad sallahu wa salam tremendously, but it requires of you what faith and sacrifice and willingness to follow. And then Allah will show you more than what you've expected.
And it tells you about the hardship that all of them went through, including Abu Hurayrah that he would be so hungry, as we said that he would fall down and faint, or that he would have to tie stones around his stomach or the Allahu Anhu out of hunger. But none of these things dissuaded them from following the truth or following the commands of Rasul Allah, He is Allah Allah you Erdi was salam, none of that. So hardship, no matter who you are, will come your way. The fact or the thing is that you'd have to expect it and adjust your expectations to that you will understand that no matter what happens, Allah is more precious and Iman is more precious. And if you hold on to that,
eventually that hardship will disappear. Sickness will go away.
Poverty will go away. distress of any kind will go away. And what remains is Iman and your trust in Allah azza wa jal, this is what happened with them. So it's it's beautiful to hear. But as you experience it, remember these stories that's where we're telling these stories and their life
as we want that when we experience hardship, to remember what they've gone through, and follow the same path and say, they survived it and Insha Allah, by the will of Allah and His help, we will be also we will be of those who are survivors as well.
Now, I mean there's some other benefits in it insha Allah but this is, this is plenty insha Allah and commenting about the story.
And next Hadith or the next,
Statement of the sahabi
comes from sad, if not of your costs.
And he said says about himself. In Neela O'Toole Arabi Rama visa I mean visa vie Lila, and he says I'm the first among the Arab to throw an arrow for the sake of Allah azza wa jal meaning that he among the Hmong was among the first to be sent in one of these
Saraya and in that small set iya he threw an arrow and was the first arrow to be thrown for the sake of Allah as of June so he says that about himself was a tuna Natsu and I remember as I we went, I witnessed us now kazoo going on in jihad. Woman annata on Illawarra cool who blatty who had a summer when we were going on Jihad traveling for jihad. He says we had no food except leaves of particular thorny trees and plants. There's when they traveling, they have no food with them. So what's the only food that they eat? There will be some thorny plants. They will take those leaves and they will eat that. That's the only thing that they ate. And he says we're in had another layover. Okay,
Matata Asha Tamala. Who killed he says, Because of eating that, when we relieve ourselves, we have droppings or we excrements like the droppings of sheep.
I don't know if you've seen droppings of sheep, you know how round it is? Right? So he says when we would relieve ourselves, our excrements look like that because of how hard and dry our food is. Like animals, right? So you can describe it. I couldn't understand how difficult it was on their bodies. And when you when you just read this, you can read it and you know, and keep reading. But imagine if you were to eat like this, Allahu Allah, how many days and weeks what will it do to your body?
What pain you may have, what discomfort you may experience, how do you sleep? How do you wake up how it messes up your message your biology.
But they endured
and they were patient because the sacrifice was something greater. So it's panela if the thing that you're sacrificing for is great and beloved, you can sacrifice so he says to me, so Moskva had been no asset in two Azizullah to zero in Al Islam and then Ben will acid the children of acid after all of this are trying to teach me Islam clip to eat and hold on Alyssa then misguided I am and lost in his my effort. What's Radi Allahu Anhu is describing is that later on, he becomes a mural Kufa
the prince of Kufa
and bento Asad is a tribe is an Arab tribe.
And its history was that after the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam many of them apostate it and they followed a an imposter who claimed prophethood but then they repented. They became good Muslims and then a lot of them moved to El Kufa in Iraq. Saudi Arabia Waqas became the Emir in Kufa
and then after some time, they started to complain about him.
And one of these complaints, right, which obviously was a lie was that he doesn't know how to pray.
Salah right, he doesn't know how to play.
That's why Sodom ABI Waqqas are the Allahu Anhu is saying he says, Do do you know right of my history? Like how early my Islam was. I'm the first person to throw an arrow for the sake of Allah azza wa jal in our cassava in our jihad, we used to throw this go through all this and then you come and tell me and you trying to teach me Islam to you
either misguided him that if I don't know how to pray after all of this, if I don't know Islam after all of this, so the question that some ask here is that how is it done Saddam our cause can brag about this? How could he was not supposed to brag, right? It said this, what is the intent behind it? If the intent behind it is not arrogance, but rather to prove what is right, and does disprove what is wrong, you are allowed to do this.
Right? And if somebody as as a, as a scholar, let's say, and he arrives in a place, and a lot of them are are ignorant, and they're not learning from him, he's allowed to say, I know so much and so much of the Quran and so much and so much of the Sunnah Otmar and my
teachers are this and this and this and this, he is allowed to describe his excellence so that they would learn from him. So if the intent is good, it's allowed, but dragging for the sake of what elevating yourself and arrogance is haram. But if you do it for good reasons, and that's allowed, and said, ignore we will cost did it for a good reason on all the Allahu Anhu but again, that part about the hardship that they experienced in beginning of Islam is what
is what is intended from Al Bukhari Rahim Allah in inclusion of that statement from said
the following ones
in that they described the food of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and his family so I Aisha said my shabby Eid will Hamid in mundo de mal Medina, the mentor Army brintellix in Tibet and Hata COVID is the family of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never had their full
whenever God full of wheat three days, three consecutive days from the time that he came to Medina until his death, Salado said that they did not have enough wheat, Jonnie Hubbs. Bread. That's what it is, right? So they did not have enough of it for three days consecutively. From the time he came to Medina, and for 10 years for time, he came to me till his death. So that if they had enough bread, let's say or enough wheat for one day, or if they had it for one day, and the next day wouldn't have it for the third.
So that's it. Right? So that's how little they have. So they used it for one day. That was it. If they use it for two days, that's it. But three days of bread or three days of wheat, there's nothing. So if you go and they'll open the cupboard of the prophets, Allah Salam in his home, they're not be enough for three days.
Right? And hamdulillah hamdulillah from Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. We'll open our pantry is open our fridges, what do we have it for a week and more. And it's not a problem. Even if you don't have it, you can just go drive, get it and come back. So the idea of not having enough is really very, very foreign to us. very foreign to us, you know how we panicked during the pandemic because of lack of food, chicken, what are we going to get chicken right? So it's the idea of not having enough that's very foreign to us, but that he would open is not enough in there to feed them for more than two days. Now.
He should I should also continue and she said that's a different generation Michael and Mohammed in at Latini Fionn Illa he the whole matter. He said the amount of Muhammad the family of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam it didn't eat two meals a day except that one of them had to be dates.
Success the least. So if they eat let's say for instance, red the other one is what dates if there is meat in one of them. The other one is dates. Again, that's the very basic of food that you could find in Medina.
And he also she said that all the Allahu Anhu Kenneth Eros rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mean Damian will hush will whom will leave she said the bedding or the mattress of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was from leather. So animal height, that was that was tent. So animal hide that was tan and is stuffed with palm fiber. So you take the fiber, right from the palm tree, you take the fiber and there is this height or this leather you would stuff it. So it and that is it that his his bedding Sallalahu it you know he was in there how simple that was very simple. And even though it is not as hard as the floor. It still is not that soft, soft enough, but it's still not
oh okay this is from Anna sub nomadic then we come to Asia again.
So Qatada said called Hakuna tea and a sub nomadic in Wahhabism, who called him he says you will use to visit and a sub nomadic or the Allahu Anhu and the one the Baker and his Baker is standing beside him the one who's making the bread and baking the bread standing beside him will call the Kulu and he would say eat from her animal Nebia subtle Allahu Allah He was a murderer or thief and Moroccan hatherleigh hyperbola he says, I don't know that the prophets a lot of you sent them saw a flat soft bread until he passed away. wallarah Schatten semitone behind here called, and he did not see a sharp
semitone behind here.
Again, what's the SHA? You know that
a sheep is likely to fail. I don't know why that scared me. So a sheep, right.
Roasted sheep. But what's what is Summit? Summit is a sheep that had been
treated so that you would remove all of its hair. You know how for instance, you've probably seen it with chicken, they dip it in hot water, they removed all the feathers, and then they sell it or they cook it they do something similar with the sheep they put it in hot water so that they could remove the hair. Okay, the fur of the animal and then they would roast it and barbecue it that is shot semitones it is a you never saw that in his with his own eyes ever. So I do not know it could be that when they roasted. They didn't do this.
Right? They tried their best with all their own hands or they skinned it or what but they didn't do this and they just roasted it. So whatever they ate was very simple.
Untreated, right? Very simple and untreated. You wouldn't imagine eating something like that today. Right? And our palate would not accept it.
But that's what he said. Bahama Hola, right. So there was no tickle of in the meals of the prophets. Allah Allah wa salam it was very, very simple time.
She says Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu in the next
statement. Carla, can I add to Elena Shaha Romano petofi kinara a month would pass. We wouldn't light a fire in Omaha tomorrow Wilma. We would only eat water or drink water and eat dates. Inaudible Lehane ale unless we would we be gifted a little bit of meat. So whole month without fire in the house. So what are you eating every day?
Dates, water and dates second, water and dates third water and dates try
try it right now. Even water in dates just pick one meal. Just pick one thing. Peanut butter and jelly right? Whatever you want to just pick one thing
and try eating it every single day. lunch dinner lunch dinner lunch dinner lunch dinner what happens to
AI can you imagine it?
Can you imagine it even something as soft as white bread peanut butter and jelly Can you just imagine that is a kind of dye give me something else I need some meat says okay dates and water dates and water dates and water that's an entire month.
Right? inaudible to him unless somebody gives us a little bit of me they will eat that and that is it.
So you understand that they were not men and women of the dunya it he didn't wake up thinking about what am I going to eat today? Planning your meal right? Or for instance you know you watched I'm not condemning this I'm just contrasting or you're watching you know how to cook meals online and you go on and you buy the ingredients and you cook it again it's not haram but I'm just telling you that contrast this to that. Are you watching food videos and you say oh yeah, I want to cook this pasta and this pizza and this that and this that and you're thinking about next week I'm gonna go to this restaurant and try this new cuisine and right the not men and women of the dunya that's not what
occupies them and the the prophets of Allah Islam as I said about them authentically, he would pass by the house do you have food today? No, I'll fast
that's it the food not like do you have that particular dish that I like? Did you make it? No. Do you have anything? No, fine, I'll fast. Yes, he'll eat it. What did what is what is available dates. So, again, it's good Subhanallah so just so you appreciate the name of Allah
isodiol So, that also you understand that at one point, I think Allah Allah at one point in the future of this world and in the future of Muslims, we would have to re experience some of this hardship in order to restore justice to this world. Right? Yeah, and if not us, the next generation or the next generation, that they will have to experience real hardship in order for the truth to come back. So, you can be enjoying you know, all these things, all these luxuries and think that all we will Yes, we will command good and forbid evil and with comfort, it can be there has to be real discomfort coming our way, if we want the right thing to happen. So, just so that at least mentally
right mentally, if not even physically, but at least mentally to be ready for it.
The next one is Aisha she says to Ottawa
if no tea he says my nephew son of my sister in canola number oil healer etha he let in future Hurricane Wilma, okay, that EBIT? Rasulullah he not he said we used to look at the halal three Hillels in three months in two months, meaning the beginning of the month, the beginning of the next month and the beginning of the third month meaning one healer to heal three healers, right two months.
And there would be no fire lit in the house of the prophets of Allah he was sitting him so he says, What sustained you any lower now, wonders? See, see, things changed even from when it came to the tablet in things really change that he had to ask them? What sustained you i for two months there will be no fire in your house? What did you eat? How did you live? She said a sedan a terminal Walmart he says this dates and water Illa Inaho except that the prophets OLALIA Salam had neighbors that were unsolved what can Allah homeowner and used to have camels that they would milk? Well can we even know how not to swallow him in abbiati and fire Spina and they used to give give us some
Milk and the prophets Allah wa salam would feed us that for two months meaning sometimes we would have some camel milk otherwise it's dates and water dates and water. And that was enough for them and the last in this chapter insha Allah
and fortnight between Allah azza wa jal is that the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam he said Allah who murders of Allah Mohammed in Kota.
He said the Allah provide a good a sufficient food and drink for the out of Mohammed. And in another narration, it says Allahumma Jahan,
Allah maganda Risca Ali Mohammed in your Allah make the provision of Allah Muhammad, put the hood is what is sufficient for them. Now more and not less. And that is here one of the evidence that some scholars consider in stating that it's not poverty that is best, or being rich that is best, but having sufficient, sufficient e food and drinks sufficient money for your day, they see because that avoids the excesses and the dangers of poverty, and wealth. If you don't have money, you don't have food, you don't have enough, you're thinking about it. Because you're hungry. You don't have enough for your bills, you don't have enough to feed your children. So your mind is preoccupied, your heart
is preoccupied. So it's hard for you to worship Allah azza wa jal, with clarity with ease. And if you have a lot more than that needs of that particular day, you're worried about it. You're about the extra dollar, the extra food that you have. But if you have enough for your day, then you can eat you can drink you but could be sufficient. And then you could give the rest to Allah assuming your attention. The rest of Allah as though done and the next day will bring its own provisions. So each day will have its provision. So he's prayed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that of Muhammad will have sufficient sufficiency, not blessed and not more, and they would said he would only ask for the
best for them.
If you wish something for your family, for your children, you wish for the best. She said the who would only wish for the best for them. That's the what they said it is the best. Keeping in mind also at the same time, that is among the slaves of Allah as that had meaning among people are those who need more poverty than wealth, and only poverty works
and there are Hmong people are those who need wealth more than poverty and only wealth works for them.
And Allah oxygen knows best. Right? So that's why Allah one of the reasons why Allah azza wa jal varies the provisions among people is that, and this is an author.
It's not a hadith as an author. But it says that among my
slaves are those who if I give them money, it will corrupt them. And among my slaves, or those whom if I take money from them, it will corrupt them.
So for some people, if they poor, it doesn't really work for them. But if they are rich, they're pious, and they are giving and they are generous and the opposite. Those who when they are poor, they're close to Allah as the origin, but if give them money, it will play with their heads. So Allahu Allah, and I'm not there's not one single thing that works for everybody here and that's why Allah azza wa jal varies in his in his provisions Subhana wa Taala so as we sit in sha Allah we will pause the series between Allah azza wa jal and we will return after Ramadan after Eid in sha Allah so let's see inshallah if you have questions or things you would want to add or want to add
inshallah let me know
when it comes to love it a good way yeah
withdrawal all of these exists
So hey, so Hey Zack Allah here. So a brother explains here that he lives next to a supermarket and he says every night when he goes back home he notices that they throw out all the excess all the old bread you said bread and milk crew are only bread, bread, so all the old bread, they throw it away in the dumpster. So he says consider how much excess we have and how much we waste. There is a lot of food that we waste. So Subhanallah we don't recognize the name and again because we have a lot of it. And when you have a lot of something that you don't realize the importance of every single thing that you have not until what you lose it and then you start dreaming and think about remember the
time when we used to have so much and we used to be ungrateful and we would throw it away and now I wish I could see this and taste that so Zach Allah here this is this is a good reminder that an emulator Doom NEMA doesn't last and if you don't preserve it, and if you don't protect it, it will slip away from our hands Nautica Lovick.
Musab says I can look at so I just your comment first looks I'll repeat it so that people will hear it. He said Zala here is that the reason why the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu. Were saying that the Prophet never saw this and that is that they acquired new lands. And with that new came new wealth and new ways of doing things. So they saw new things and more luxuries that the prophets Alehissalaam never saw. And that is absolutely true. They saw new food, right?
More luxury, more were more money. So the prophets always send them in the early companions never saw any of that. But of course, they and then their children are seeing it. And they want to remind them that the way we started wasn't like this magic law. Now I'm the life of Mossad. It blew me
out of the Allahu Anhu he says we said we mentioned his story. I mentioned a little bit about him last week, when we said that he had on the Allahu Anhu
is an example of those who died early and did not get anything back. From his Hijra from his Islam. He didn't see money, he didn't see wealth. He didn't see glory he died in the battle of all the Allahu Anhu. So Musab was a very early Muslim, very early Muslim. So he used to meet among the early Muslims in Darwin or come and they would discuss Islam and learn it and worship Allah azza wa jal so very early Muslim and he is noted to have come from a wealthy family. In he lived in luxury does it is it is said that if most ignore OMA your weight, come
He would know that he is coming from the perfume that he had on. So his mother would spoil him all the Allahu anhu, the best clothes and the best of perfume.
But he yet wanted to accept Islam. And he accepted Islam. And his mother gave him an ultimatum. Either you accept Islam, I mean, either you reject Islam, or I deny you all of this,
all of that money.
And all of a sudden, Masaba No, Amelia became panelists, he didn't have anything because he said, No, I want to continue to be Muslim. So they took all of that money away.
And he lived without it in hardship and in poverty, or the Allahu Anhu in Makkah, and then he had to migrate to El Habesha, to be skinnier and in their right, you know, to run away with family with his religion, and he stayed there. And then he came back to Makkah. And when the good news from Medina were starting to come, that there were people were interested in Islam.
And a delegation came and then another delegation came the prophets a lot he was sent them sent Musa IGNOU Omega to teach them Quran. So he was the first teacher, alo alum who was sent to Medina to teach them Quran. And he taught them Quran over there.
And when the battle of of Hood came, he was carrying the lever or the flag, or the banner of Muslims in the battle. And he was killed in it. And as we said, in the Hadith, that when they wanted to shroud him they wanted to find a Katherine for him. The only thing that he had was an EMI era was just a clothing, a piece of clothing, that was square, not long enough to cover the whole body. If you cover the head, the legs would be exposed or the feet would be exposed. You cover the feet, the head would be exposed. That's the only thing that he had. The only thing that he owned, well, the Allah No. And so the prophets Allah Allah wa salam said no cover the head and put some grass to
cover his feet or the Allah No. So that's an example of someone and I think Allah annum but not 100% Sure he was in his 40s when he died. So probably I'm thinking that when he accepted Islam, he was young. He was a young man when he accepted Islam. And when he rejected the traditions of his family and their pressure, he was a very young man. Yet Allah azza wa jal felt better called Bowie stabilized his heart, he confirmed his heart upon the truth, but he paid a price for it. And the price is all that money and all that connections and all those connections and luxury went away as soon as he said that either in Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. And that's why hubbub is saying there are
some of us who migrated with the Prophet sallallaahu Salam and didn't get anything in return for it. Most Ibis is one of them, he didn't see any sweetness of the dunya come his way out of
his decision to be Muslim. So as we said, some of us will be like that. And it does not diminish you. And that's the case, you may give a lecture you may give Dawa, you may give sadaqa and you may see nothing in return for it.
Right. But it doesn't diminish what you've given. And you shouldn't compare yourself to other people. And you said, well, so and so. God followers are so and so. God good responses are so it doesn't matter. If what you do is for Allah azza wa jal, you may or may not see something in return. But what matters is that you've done it the lasagna, and sometimes as kebab was reminiscing, sometimes not receiving anything back is better. Because then all of your reward is with Allah as all of it right?
So that's what I have about Mossad political logic. Any other question that others you have?
I don't think so. Please, insha Allah so a reminder in sha Allah will be having a
lecture in sha Allah on Sunday about Ramadan beat nila, as xojo All is invited. It will be after Makarov. Insha Allah. So we say Subhanak long way behind the shadow Allah and the stuff raka tubo they could hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen we'll see you in sha Allah. Allah azza wa jal after apt Nila work Alavi Samadhi
