and have told us in the Quran clearly to follow his footsteps is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:17--> 00:05:22

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Ala Moana when Allah Subhana Allah sent them.

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

He sent them with complete and perfection of manners.

00:05:28--> 00:05:35

Best characteristic known even before the time of Islam, before the revelation time.

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

That's why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have stated in my brief to leotta me masala has a flock, that I was sent to complete good manners

00:05:49--> 00:05:53

and one of the manners of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

that the third one on why haleem have witnessed

00:05:58--> 00:06:04

and this manner also came into the poor end in the life of other prophets

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

and also in the life of the Sahaba route one Allah Allah him, which is the manner of Al carrum generosity.

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

being generous,

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

is one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala al Karim,

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

Allah, who will carry him the most generous

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

he gives you without asking for anything back.

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

And he gives to the one who worship Him and the one who don't.

00:06:38--> 00:06:46

And he provide the rest to all of mankind regardless of what they believe in, as Kareem.

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

Welcome as the old Mr. Hamamoto Tyler has stated the definition is to give out of what you have without looking for a return.

00:07:00--> 00:07:04

Yeah, you have insano Maverick arabic al Karim.

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

Allah Hu al Karim jell O Allah subhanho

00:07:11--> 00:07:24

wa Hadith and the nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a fool that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadith that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most generous and he like those who are generous.

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

generosity is a manner of Rasulullah as they have said,

00:07:30--> 00:07:37

as an encouragement for the Muslim Ummah, to do so, especially at the time of hardship and at the time of need.

00:07:39--> 00:08:11

called the love on whom alchemical Bukhari cannot assume Rasulullah Jordan says that the Prophet was the most generous out of mankind. What can I do my akuna Ramadan and he was most generous in Ramadan when when gibreel alayhis salam would reveal the full end to him. Fellow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam eduware do menial menial will hire him in a real mozzarella that the Prophet salallahu Salam was more generous in goodness in doing good than the blowing wind.

00:08:15--> 00:08:15

Today

00:08:17--> 00:08:37

I would like to discuss few ideas from the Quran about a story that Allah subhanaw taala have mentioned it for us in many different places in the forum, many different chapters to emphasize this important manner to revive this manner in our life.

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

Allah subhanaw taala said

00:08:42--> 00:08:53

well attacca De Soto Ebrahim al micromine Have you heard about the boys, the guests of Brahim alayhis salam

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

another great example for this oma

00:08:58--> 00:09:12

not only for the prophets for this Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to follow Allah subhanaw taala commanded Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to follow the life of Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:09:13--> 00:09:26

an Allah Subhana Allah has made him also a best example for us. Why because Ibrahim Ali Salaam in a Brahim McKenna oma. He was a nation by himself.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

sal Allahu Allahu Allah Nabina.

00:09:31--> 00:09:43

What happened? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that and I only chose that as in sort of there yet. When his guests came over the angels in forms of in a form of a human being, he did not know them.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

But as soon as they came in, call to sell em and call a seller, home karoon they greeted him. And this is the first part. They said sell em and peace.

00:10:01--> 00:10:09

out of his generosity Salalah Holly, he responded with Salah mon may be be upon you complete greeting

00:10:11--> 00:10:17

greeting your guests and taking care of them and giving them the honor

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

is part of our Eman

00:10:22--> 00:10:42

McKenna Minami La Jolla mill ffl. You Korean boyfriend. If you truly believe in Allah and the Day of Judgment, you must be generous to your guests. Command Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam men can you mean if we truly believe Subhana Allah Eman?

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

It's a statement with a tongue.

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

Believe in the heart, followed by actions.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

It will be easy to claim something

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

but you have to bring approved for your claim.

00:10:59--> 00:11:05

The above Salim said if you believe in Allah and the Day of Judgment, this is what you say. This is what you claim.

00:11:06--> 00:11:18

Be generous to your guests. So Ibrahim alayhis salam from the beginning. When he got them in, they entered his house, and so panela from the and

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

from the air that we notice that they did not ask for permission to come in.

00:11:27--> 00:11:33

They didn't say that. As if his house was 24 hours open for guests.

00:11:35--> 00:11:58

out of his generosity, that his doors were open. A guest could come in anytime. And as he was narrated in the books of Devon Sierra and others, that Ibrahim alayhis salam would not eat by himself. He has to have a guest with him. So if they don't bring him someone to eat with him, he would go out himself and wait for someone to cross by and bring him to eat generosity, kill them,

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

kill them that we need to follow.

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

And manners this dean of hamdulillah is completed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have drawn a line for us what to do and what not to do. Everything is clear in this Deen. So they came in they said down Thoreau, Allah Allah.

00:12:20--> 00:12:34

Some of the fancier says that he gave a signal to his family. Some other says that he came, he kind of said, Give me a second. What happened? He went to slaughter an animal for them, cooked it prepared, it brought it right there.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

And he said it for them to eat.

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

And then when he found that they're not eating,

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

he asked them

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

You do not want to eat.

00:12:52--> 00:13:15

He felt some fear. And Darla malamala have explained why the fear came because those people who will be traveling, they usually be hungry to eat or so on. So if they don't eat in house, there's something wrong. Some other LMS says maybe he was afraid that there might they were asking how his income coming from whatever the fear is. the generosity of Ibrahim alayhis salam led to a glad tithing.

00:13:16--> 00:13:27

And this is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have emphasized for us cannot assume Allah as you are to know that the Prophet Selim was the most generous, he thought the Sahaba that

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

to give from what Allah subhanaw taala has given you, you're not doing your guests a favor. You're doing yourself a favor.

00:13:39--> 00:13:47

Because Allah subhanaw taala has given you so much of neon and bounties and blessings. And he only asked

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

a little from you.

00:13:53--> 00:14:10

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he told the Sahaba about the sada He did not say to give a sadhaka of all your money. And if he wanted to say so they will find an evidence and proofs for that. But the Sahaba route one by Allah him they did that themselves.

00:14:11--> 00:14:25

Were Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have a guest in his house, he would not find food to offer to them. So he would ask his wife's in nine different rooms. Do you have anything to offer?

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

They would say Well, hey, there's nothing in our house

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

for a few days

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ask one of the companions to take care of the guest.

00:14:39--> 00:14:46

So a man came Kalia rasulillah. Anna, I will take care of him. He took him to his house.

00:14:48--> 00:14:56

They have nothing except the food for their children for the night. So his wife took care of her children and made them go to sleep

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

to save the food for them.

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

A guest and he told her he said we'll do a trick. Turn of the the lamb, the light, and then I'll act as if I'm eating with my guests. There's nothing in the plate. That's all we could do and we give him the the full plate and we'll take the empty plate

00:15:16--> 00:15:30

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the second day he said that Allah subhanaw taala has witnessed what you have done for your guests. What is the replacement for all of this? Always the replacement the payback is Jenna.

00:15:32--> 00:15:32

paradise.

00:15:34--> 00:15:37

There is no other reward there is greater than paradise.

00:15:38--> 00:15:47

When the Sahaba Guan y la him, they understood this concept. They sacrificed everything that they had for a loss of Hannah hotel.

00:15:49--> 00:15:54

They were the most generous after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

00:15:56--> 00:16:02

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam would not return a person ever without giving him something.

00:16:05--> 00:16:17

When he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting with the Sahaba and a group of poor people came he stood up the member and he said anyone to offer anything for them.

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

Anything whatever you have,

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

none of those have removed.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

So a man came

00:16:26--> 00:16:40

color a suit of law, in heavy metal obeyed equally. He said oh prophet of Allah. This is all I have in my house, few plates, some cups some food that said, and I swear if I have anything else, I would have brought it to you.

00:16:42--> 00:17:15

Nothing else to offer, but this is the least I could do. I did my best. When the Sahaba saw that they all ran to their house Abu Bakr the law and order with few 1000s or with few 1000s of men. The prophet SAW Selim smiled at the member and he said men send nephele Islam so Nathan has an fella who a judo have a German Army, Libya, a woman PM, whoever sets a sooner revives the sooner in Islam reminds people of a sooner or does an act and people follow Him He will be rewarded for their actions.

00:17:16--> 00:17:22

The 1000 that Abu Bakr spend, this poor man also got portion of it or got the full reward of it.

00:17:23--> 00:17:32

They were so generous as I told you, not only that they sacrifice their money and their wealth, they sacrifice their life for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:34--> 00:17:44

they were willing to give up everything to please Allah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to follow the command and the order of Allah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:17:46--> 00:18:07

This beautiful story mentioned in the books of the overseer, when Allah subhanaw taala revealed the men they live up to LA carbon has failed or if a hula hoop or biofin Kathy or when La Jolla cabildo episode who will give a law alone, learn the law of money. The Sahaba said Yara surah Allah, Allahu.

00:18:09--> 00:18:21

Allah is asking us to give him a loan. He gave us everything. And if he wanted to take it from us, he would easily take it from us. people wake up in the morning millionaires at night they're sleeping in the streets.

00:18:23--> 00:18:28

And the opposite. Nia mama the bounties of Allah the blessings of Allah.

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

Allah Nam, yes. What is the reward? Elgin

00:18:35--> 00:19:16

Elgin paradise. There is nothing else that is offered except Jen, do you want to buy Jen? Very simple. So how have I said yes, we want to buy Jenna. So a man came to Rasulullah Salim, an orphan young child or a young man, he came to the process sell them. He had a debate between him and Abu Zubaydah. Some narration mentioned. He said, This palm tree is mine. He claims it's his abou claims it's his sort of solar cell and this sallallahu Sallam just between them and he said this palm tree belongs to Abu Zubaydah is closer to his garden, it's in his garden. So this young boy said jasola, I wanted to buy it from him. So he doesn't want to, he doesn't want to sell it, sort of pseudo

00:19:16--> 00:19:39

lasala Sanam, as Abu Zubaydah call it a Tabby or have been afflicted Phil. Jenna, do you want to sell this by giving you a palm tree in paradise? Apple, Nevada, Jelani said it's my provision, my risk, no problem. It's his right you can take it from him and man was sitting down, and then from those people who have heard the wording of Allah and the wordings of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where he runs for the competition to gender.

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

It's a race. this dunya is a race. You're racing with one another you're competing. We are competing now on matters of dunya Colin has an if you if someone competes with you on matters of dunya leave it for him. And if someone competes with you and the matter of if you're compete with him, this is the real competition. This is the real

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

Race. So are we stood up? Tada, Sula, la le Miss la de la vida. Do you promise me the same thing You promised Abu Zubaydah is this offer going? Still going? a palm tree in general? He said yes. So he went to Abu Nevada County Alabama. I have my garden. Some nourishing 300 some nourishing says 600 best palm trees in Medina

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

best he's a billionaire. In a sense, none of us has 600 palm tree

00:20:33--> 00:20:44

of our currency today. 600 palm tree he said, Do you want me I want to buy your palm tree how much you want to sell it for? He said how much you want to buy for he said all my garden

00:20:45--> 00:20:51

the narration of other than Mr. Hammonds Muslim said he told him Are you insane?

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

You know what you're you realize what you're saying?

00:20:55--> 00:21:17

The garden he said the garden with the house with everything. For what for a palm tree? He said no, no, no. The concept to avoid that is different. The calculation of our data is different. The way that looks at is different said I am selling it for a palm tree in general. And if you're promised the palm tree in general, you're guaranteed to intergender

00:21:19--> 00:21:50

our calculation is different. You want to or know the deal is still there. He said yeah, I'll take it took the palm tree said the also law. This young boy could do whatever he wants with it. It's a gift. Am I still promised the palm tree just to make sure call a lot of sudama can mean it can walk away I think is king Radha Henley Abbe de Hayfield Jana. He said in a concept in a meaning you think you're more generous than Allah? He said, How many palm trees are you getting in general?

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

You can count them now.

00:21:54--> 00:22:30

You're not more generous than Allah when you give $1 Allah subhanaw taala multiplied up to 700 and more. So he said, You haven't done that you're getting so much of palm trees in general, that you can count you can keep a count. He felt happy. Went home. Forget this whole story right now. When I read this story, the last part is the part that gets me. When he went home he called his wife and his children outside of the garden. She said Why? He said because I have sold my garden for a lawn his profit. She said this is a successful deal.

00:22:33--> 00:23:08

She didn't ask for divorce. She didn't file a court case. She didn't pass out and had a heart attack. None of that. She said the same thing that Rasulullah said by the way, this is a successful deal that you have made with online is Professor lalala. Sell. We know we didn't lose anything because we're getting gentlemen in the narration. Some of her kids had dates in their mouth. She took it away while the kids are crying. She threw it back into the garden and she taught them a lesson she said my my children, we have sold it for Allah and His Prophet sallallahu Sallam and we are waiting for the reward in general, not in this dunya this NGO, they didn't lose anything. When

00:23:08--> 00:23:41

they give for Allah, Allah subhanaw taala rewarded them not only in accurate voila, he Indonesia Abu Bakr became halifa after he spent all his money, Omar became holophone he spent half his money off man became Khalifa when he when he helped that Joshua lasala Olive natali became they got they gained dunya and akhira and this is the word of Allah subhanaw taala the generosity of Allah Subhana Allah May Allah subhanaw taala make us among those who hears his words and follow and benefit from them. And may Allah Subhana Allah help us to gain and learn and benefit from the manners of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam a portfolio

We need Imams and Allah and scholars who lead this oma through this hardship Rasulullah Sallam said the faith and will increase, knowledge will decrease, ignorance will increase what will come people who are ignorant, they will get fat, and they will misguide themselves and mislead others misguide others. We need imams who

We need that this is the must now Rasulullah Sallam said they would mislead. There are people who don't know what's going on. They're giving fatwa and they have no clue what's going on.

This is our obligation of this time, especially the time of corruption, the time of faith and the time of tribulation, the time of hardship, the time of reflection where

00:27:25--> 00:27:53

people are misled, to the left and the right. Why is that because they either misled by someone or by not understanding the reality the real deal the real religion of Allah subhanaw taala from the source from the people who learn the deen of Allah subhanaw taala like our scholars and our amendment also cannot Allah protect them.
