00:01:06--> 00:01:23

So about oh, he said to him No, ma'am, please use it there is it not such that the host is worthy or of that sitting on that chair or the place in the room the central place that is in any other person? Imam Muhammad said to him Yes, but he can also choose to allow his guests to sit in his place.

Imam Ahmed said to him Don't say that.

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

Because Allah knows that there are certain people in life who I only see once a year. I love them more than certain people I see on a day to day basis.

I will beat it No, no you relax, I'll find my own way out there's no need for this kind of royal treatment. He said to him No, you deserve it because

00:02:39--> 00:02:54

I'm it'll show me the Tabea you narrated and he said that it is part of the honoring of a guest that you take him by the hand till he reaches outside of the house and you hold the reign of his animals till he departs. Your Allah

00:03:12--> 00:03:30

so I will obey it he said to himself, haha, he thought he thought that is my third benefit for today. Look at how much is to be gained when you choose the right people to sit with and how much is to be lost when your social gatherings are, are with the wrong people.
