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

so this is our last session with the recitation of the poem the guide of wisdoms or the guide to wisdoms by Al Boustead Rahim Allah Allah

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

is here whenever you're ready. I'm going to do more of a running translation today. Unfortunately, over the past two days, I just haven't had the time to be able to tinker with the translation like I normally would actually had a death in my

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


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

family friends, one of my childhood friends passed away in Austin.

00:00:33 --> 00:00:36

Well, him a whole lot to add. So I went,

00:00:37 --> 00:00:45

I had to go pick up my mom, she flew in from New York. And I spent the past two days in Austin and actually just came from Austin, this was late.

00:00:46 --> 00:00:52

We paid the Janaza today a lot. And it's just a reminder of all of this stuff that we're talking about. I mean, he literally just went to sleep

00:00:53 --> 00:00:54

next to his mom.

00:00:56 --> 00:00:59

Then he, you know, next morning, she wanted to wake him up, and he couldn't.

00:01:00 --> 00:01:22

He couldn't wake up. So he passed away to him, Allah to Allah. And then, you know, we just went from it was intense, because he had his, his brother, and I'm going through the grieving process with his brother that was his only brother's only sibling. And they were, they had been separated and distant for a long time.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

And so even panela

00:01:26 --> 00:01:37

they had we got together in January, and we're mending the fence and even spamela the Wi Fi password in the house. I was like, what's the Wi Fi password? He's like, New Year, because me and my brother, we're starting a new year.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

Yeah, so

00:01:41 --> 00:02:17

it shows you also siblings. We live unfortunately, in American culture, it's like, you know, you have this, my sibling is an idiot type attitude. Growing up a lot of times, you know, I kept my siblings are so annoying. But the longest relationship you have in your life is with who? Your siblings. Like if both of you live an average lifespan, your longest relationship in your in this world is going to be with your siblings, you're going to outlive your parents, by a number of decades. And these people that you've known since you were two or three or four or five, they're going to be your longest relationships. Right? So

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

bearing hatchets with your siblings, not

00:02:22 --> 00:02:38

as best as you can, you know, being on the same page, being sincere to one another. All of these meanings that we've been talking about over the past couple of days, or the past couple of weeks. The people who are most deserving of it. Are your family members. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best. Okay, let's begin. Yes.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:45

Miss Miller or salatu salam, ala Rasulillah Salam Murali for Rahima Hola.

00:02:47 --> 00:03:07

Yo, volley man fairy hum belies Zisa either who encounter fi CNET in Florida Hello, Yakov on master Murrah azul, Mallow, soft kill who were healthier, less zoom as call noble hood.

00:03:08 --> 00:03:36

So we talked about that last week, he talks about how a person can't Don't be deluded by the power that you have over people and all of the Yes Men around you. And then he says Nobody, Nobody enjoys the sweetness of oppression. Like that taste. It's not sweet, it's bitter. So Nobody enjoys the bitterness of the taste of oppression. So don't be diluted by the power that you have at any particular time. Keep going. Yeah. Are you

00:03:37 --> 00:03:47

any more than Molenaar? Do you see Raju beshear? Who II in Iraq? No. So he says

00:03:48 --> 00:04:31

oh Adam, Adam Bhima what he says about the EU and Mario Sierra two who oh am Oh person with knowledge. Who Sierra who's whose life is murder Lee it is. It is monthly meaning it is pleased with pleased with by who? Please by ALLAH SubhanA data number one, Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with your journey. Oh person have knowledge. Why? Because the person of knowledge lives a life that's different than everybody else. The person who has religious knowledge every time that knowledge is mentioned in these books, it's talking about religious knowledge. Why is the person of knowledge their life different than everybody else? Because if every juncture in their life, every choice that

00:04:31 --> 00:05:00

they make, they are aware of what Allah subhanaw taala wants from them in that moment. And so when they're interacting with their spouse, they know what Allah subhanaw taala loves of their interaction in their spouse, when they're spending money. They know how Allah subhanaw taala would love to spend their money. And not only would Allah subhanaw taala love for them to spend their money but they know the way that ALLAH SubhanA data would love most for them to spend their money. And so you find incredible statements of the Sahaba about the space

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

I think of money. And so for example, of the setup, a beautiful quote is,

00:05:06 --> 00:05:16

for me to spend one day an hour on my family is more beloved to me than to spend 1000 dinars on a plague or a drought.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:54

For me to spend $1,000 on lunch, good campaign is not more beloved to me, than to spend $1 on my kids. Because Allah Subhana Allah loves the spending that a person does on their family. So not only do they know what to do, but they know how much to do it, they know the weight that is given to different opportunities that are presented to themselves. Everybody has opportunities, both for good and bad, but the person who has knowledge, they know out of the good out of two goods, what is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why they said that the 40 The person who has understanding and knowledge is not the person who knows the difference between good and bad.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:28

Hopefully, anybody with common sense knows the difference between good and bad. But the key is, the person with knowledge knows, between two good things, what is better, and between two bad things, what is worse, and so not only is there syrup pleased, ALLAH SubhanA data pleased with their CLI, but because of their knowledge, Allah Azza the people are pleased. People are pleased. Because if you do what Allah subhanaw taala loves all the time, people are going to love you, they're going to be pleased with you. Even if in the moment they're not pleased with you, eventually there'll be pleased with you because you are walking in the path of Allah subhanaw taala you're walking down to

00:06:28 --> 00:06:38

Siddhartha Mr. Payne. And then he says for and I've shared, he says, I've shared rejoice for antebi Lady Maggie lejano?

00:06:40 --> 00:06:51

Rayyan? You've heard that name before? What is Leon? Allah Yanis? You've heard it before for sure how many Iranians do you know? What does their name mean? What are they named after?

00:06:53 --> 00:07:39

Ha, the door haven't for who? The person who is fasting Rayyan is the gates of paradise that the people who fast will enter into but what does that mean? Where does it come from? It comes from the array, which means what to quench thirst. And so he says for integrating makira Yano, he says you are and that's a beautiful symbolism, that people who are fasting, who are voluntary, voluntarily thirsting for Allah subhanaw taala, that they will they will enter paradise through a great that is called a yarn. We're all all thirst is forever quench paradise. All hunger is forever satisfied. People who enter Jannah their thirst will be quenched were from encosta.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:51

The province of a light as Adam said that of course that is a drink love Rama, Abba, they will never ever become thirsty ever again, in paradise. And so why do people drink then in paradise?

00:07:53 --> 00:08:34

They drink out of pleasure. It's like when you're breaking fast that Ramadan, you you're drinking out of thirst. But then after you've settled for five minutes, and you've eaten, whatever it is that you've eaten, and then you come back around for round two of, of chai or whatever now you're now you're drinking to relax, you're enjoying. And the people of paradise their drink is always going to be like that. It's always pure bliss. It's never out of thirst. In any case, he says Enter believing that you are your your thirst is quenched. Without water you are satisfied without water your knowledge satisfies you your knowledge Quenchers you keep going well.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:42

Lilo the fee, Daffy Luigia gene for and being shot.

00:08:44 --> 00:09:16

And he says oh brother of Jan. Oh brother of ignorance. So the opposite is ignorance person. Low was McAfee Luigia. Gene, even if you were to, even if you were to awaken in amongst rivers of flowing water, just complete basins of water. Last check. There's no doubt that you are thirsty. You're the person who doesn't have knowledge. At the end of the day. They're always dependent on somebody else. They always have to go and ask a question to somebody else. There's one. There's one kid of a chef.

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

He said, he said I want to be a chef when I grew up like my dad said why? He said because my dad never has to ask anybody.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:25


00:09:27 --> 00:09:36

the best thing about my dad is in every I've never seen him ask anybody. He just goes and he does what he wants. But he doesn't do what he wants, but he knows what Allah subhanaw taala wants and of course that's just an exaggeration. I'm sure he asks

00:09:38 --> 00:09:47

you know his own teachers as well keep going. Let Serbian rule run the Iman. Then men sir.

00:09:49 --> 00:10:00

Sir, to as you know, so he says let us roll. Do not think that pseudo happiness. Is that imminent?

00:10:00 --> 00:10:16

Other than that happiness is just going to last forever. Don't think that men, someone who is feminine, whoever is pleased in one moment in time in their life, they will be, they will be grieved other moments in your life. Life is cyclical.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:49

Sadness doesn't last forever, neither does happiness. There is dawn after every dark night, you will have as cheesy as it is, there is a brighter tomorrow. I mean, that's the reality. It doesn't last forever, sadness doesn't last forever. The greatest sadness doesn't last forever. And one of the blessings are, this is one of the blessings of when they talk about an ACN the blessings of forgetfulness. You know, when you go through the most

00:10:51 --> 00:10:54

painful losses, person loses a loved one

00:10:55 --> 00:11:04

person might think and the intensity of that moment out of loyalty for this loved person that I that I hold so dearly. I never want this pain to go away.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:09

I want to carry it with me, because of my love and loyalty for this person.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:27

But that's not the way that it goes. Allah subhanho wa Taala designed this, that no matter how intensely we love someone, that over time, we forget and forget, and the pain subsides and it dulls and we laugh again, and we live again.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:40

And there is no team in particular mentions this as one of the blessings of forgetfulness because he says if that was the case, no injury would never be forgiven, and no pain would ever subside.

00:11:41 --> 00:12:11

It would be very hard for me to turn around and forgive somebody, if every moment I still feel as intensely and hurt as the first moment that they injured me, how would you be able to forgive them and at the same time, I wouldn't be able to let go of pain, I wouldn't be able to let go of sadness. And so he's reminding us that life is cyclical. And that just like happiness doesn't last forever. Sadness doesn't last forever. But you also have to understand that this is the nature of the dunya so I'm not I'm not I'm not incredibly

00:12:14 --> 00:12:20

like Rudolph Kipling said, if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat both imposters just the same.

00:12:21 --> 00:13:04

I'm even killed. I'm not chasing happiness. I am not afraid of sadness, but I am chasing the worship of Allah subhana data. And my job is to simply be patient upon hardship and grateful upon blessings. I show gratitude to Allah Subhana Allah data during blessings, and I show patience to ALLAH SubhanA data during hardship in both circumstances I am in both circumstances I am showcasing worship to Allah subhanaw taala I am exercising servitude, if I can be patient when it's bad or difficult, and I can be grateful when its blessings or when I'm experiencing blessings. And Rasulullah sallallahu SLM reminds us in the hadith of Abdullah and Abbas the hadith is reported in Timothy he says

00:13:06 --> 00:13:22

actually in a variation other than Timothy he says to a fella life and Raha difficult. He said no Allah subhanaw taala when things are good, that's my job, when things are good, and I'm safe, and I'm in Houston and life is wonderful, and I am happy and and

00:13:24 --> 00:14:13

like the good times. What am I supposed to be doing? I'm supposed to be extending that rope and getting and knowing Allah subhana datamine knowing Allah subhana wa dadas His commandments, worshiping Allah as I can during the good times so that Allah subhana data knows me when my life is turned upside down. And that's going to happen in anybody's life. Because this is the dunya it is a place of test. It was not made to be perfect. That's what the asset is for. Keep going. Is Jeff Holley on contract law who first lube see when furcal lunacy who says either Jeff aka Helene if someone who is a fairly someone who's a close intimate friends of yours Jeff Beck becomes distant

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

from you.

00:14:14 --> 00:14:18

This was person was your BFF and all of a sudden they're not anymore

00:14:21 --> 00:14:26

even though you were wearing the wire I'm thrilled and everything like that he just he doesn't mess with you anymore. You're wearing the hoodie everything

00:14:28 --> 00:14:41

so what is he says he said he says so leave them if someone shows you that type of disregard don't chase after them leave them for cooler NASA while everybody is everybody's your brother. Everybody's a potential brother.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

Which is a strange statement for him to make because earlier on he was telling us Julian NASA Julian one in Hawaii. I know. At the beginning of the poem he told us most of brothers are treacherous. And now he's telling us no, most people are nice and beautiful and kind then you can find lots of friends

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

Like what you might tell somebody, oh, your friends don't like you anymore cost there are lots of people that you can be friends.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:16

So he's giving us almost contradictory advice. I don't know whether I should avoid everybody or whether we should be friend, everybody. But

00:15:17 --> 00:15:23

it's hard. It's absolutely hard. It's challenging. But his point is, is that

00:15:24 --> 00:15:47

they're, they're Allah subhanaw taala created a lot of people and for you to go where you are celebrated, not just tolerated, and to not be afraid to not be so close minded that you think that your world is the world's and that's going to manifest in his his, his approach to travel. It's going to manifest in what he advises us as we're going to see keep going.

00:15:49 --> 00:16:00

We're in Tibet mica el bano. nuship been so Helfer, cool OB Isla de la, he was born.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:03

So he says if

00:16:08 --> 00:16:25

Yeah, he said, If the land that you're living in becomes constricted for you, then leave it because all of the lands of Allah subhanaw taala are altered, they're all countries for you. They're all future countries for you.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:47

The earth is spacious. If I don't find respect in a particular place, if I don't find opportunity in a particular place, if I can't find whatever that go into and travel somewhere else, we talked about chef, Allah last week and how he talked about travel. There's so many opportunities that come from travel.

00:16:49 --> 00:17:02

The there's a beautiful statement that's ascribed to it. I've never thought it and Allah Subhana Allah knows best because he was. He has a lot of quotes attributed to him. But it's a beautiful statement and that is he says

00:17:03 --> 00:17:17

Alpha Kuru fibula Dena Warburton Alpha Kuru fibula, Dena Warburton, while Mallow, feel Warburton walk on. So he says poverty in our homeland is

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

orba it's like your foreign

00:17:22 --> 00:17:27

and wealth in a foreign land is like your home.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:40

What caused our parents or our grandparents or ourselves whoever to come to the United States of America from wherever, in the Muslim world we come from? Opportunity.

00:17:42 --> 00:18:11

Survival, right for some of us survival. But for some it wasn't survival. It was just opportunity. Right? It was just escaping poverty, it was escaping, and coming. And even though it's difficult, it's difficult to learn a new a new language, like many of us might have done or our parents might have done, it's difficult to never be fully yourself in the sense of being able to communicate and and navigate and

00:18:13 --> 00:18:18

but yet what causes them to still prefer or us to prefer that over?

00:18:20 --> 00:18:56

What waits at home where our tribes are known and our people are knowing and no one tells you to go back home because you are home and all of that type of stuff like what causes people to do that. It's the presence of it says it says and photography biller dinner or button it says that poverty at home is foreignness and wealth anywhere makes you at home. And so at Wooster, he says if you don't have opportunity somewhere, you know, I saw a quote once that said, if you don't like where you are, move, you're not a tree.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:27

Get up and move, go try something else somewhere else. Go to a different message. Go to a different community. It's fine. Sometimes you'll meet people and they're complaining about a community for 1015 20 years, five years what happens like bro, just go somewhere else. Try it out. Right Life is too short for a person to be so tied to a place where they're not happy. Keep going. You're all feeling Fisher. You're feeling Fisher

00:19:28 --> 00:19:35

below the moon, she and Minka. See he saw the Nash.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:51

So now he's talking about he's shifting now to the idea of being diluted by youth. And so he says the person who is is intoxicated by their youth

00:19:52 --> 00:19:58

and taught Hmm. Happy by their youth. Toxic like so much so

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

Like It, like, Isn't it time that you come to your senses? Like, isn't it time that you that you wake up that you realize that?

00:20:08 --> 00:20:11

Is youth a skill? Being young? Is that a skill?

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

Is it a talent?

00:20:15 --> 00:20:16

Is it something to be acquired?

00:20:17 --> 00:20:20

So then, how can a person be proud that they're young?

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

I don't know about you, but I'm young.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:34

Like, I'm young. Okay, you're young. Yes. There's a mindset that you carry when you're young that it is, it is a talent to be able to carry that same mindset as you.

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

And I think that's probably

00:20:39 --> 00:21:10

beautiful. So there is a talent in carrying the mindset of being young. So you're saying it in a positive sense. Yeah. That a person when they're carry themselves, like they're young, like they're young at heart, that that is positive. I think we all agree on the energy part, you know, you know, staying young in that sense, but we're trying to we're trying to pinpoint here. What, what does thinking like a young person mean, that is not praiseworthy for somebody who's 40 or 50.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

Okay, so not having wisdom.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:53

Be open minded. Okay, so being curious. So that aspect of being young is very beautiful and praiseworthy throughout a person's life. Right? Curiosity, being humble, wanting to learn, right? They say the reason why kids are able to absorb languages so much better than adults. Part of the reason is that kids aren't afraid to make mistakes, like to practice a language you're gonna make mistakes a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of mistakes. As a kid, you're okay, making mistakes, I'm okay, making mistakes. I'll remember sorry, I didn't I'm gonna get to in a second. I remember speaking on the topic of reading Quran, a lot of a lot of people unfortunately, they reach an age where they're

00:21:53 --> 00:22:15

just embarrassed to try at this point. Like, for whatever reason, they didn't learn reading Quran in their youth. And so there might be a hunger for reading Quran and I've seen this before many times with brothers, where they're sitting off the side to the Halacha. They want to listen, but they don't want to actually read. Right? Whereas if they were five or six or seven or eight or nine, then they they wouldn't have a problem making mistakes. Yes.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

So one negative could be

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

impulsiveness. Okay.

00:22:22 --> 00:22:45

Good. Absolutely. Being youthful with your children is beautiful. And most Alma Buhari it's not sad Buhari, but it said I'd never move for this another compilation of Buhari, he talks about he narrates that Zaidan in sabot Zaidan sabot used to be the most jovial person with his children. They demand sabot

00:22:46 --> 00:23:05

if there's a companion who's like, Mission Impossible, is a the Messiah that he was tasked with Mission Impossible twice. The first time he was tasked with Mission Impossible actually a number of times they they Medabots Rasulullah sallallahu SLM he's a young man from the outside. He's brilliant. He's very intelligent, the province of Allah Islam says, learn Hebrew for me.

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

I want to be able to I want to be able to correspond with the with the Jewish tribes. But I want my own translator. I don't want to use their translators. So learn Hebrew. So in a number of days, without Duolingo Zaman fabricates he learned Hebrew. He learned Hebrew brilliant, then after the province is on the licen him dies on when it comes to work and he's like, people of people are dying her father of the Quran, they're dying we need to compile the Quran. Abu Bakr is like, Okay, who we're gonna have do it. Imagine compiling the Quran

00:23:38 --> 00:23:39

Xavi the base of it.

00:23:40 --> 00:24:12

And database habit says if I was tasked with moving a mountain stone by stone, it would have been easier than what I had to do of compiling the Quran from all of the companions, but he did it. And then Earth man did not follow the law. And when he wants to standardize the most half because people had their own copies and what have you is like, No, this isn't gonna work personal. Each companion having his own personal copy, he's like, No, we need to standardize it and get rid of all of the other copies. And Who's he going to task with standardizing the Quran, ze David sabots keys bringing them out of retirement.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:30

But again, this, this this scholarly personality, when he's with his kids at home, he's like a kid with them. And of course, the greatest example is it also looks like he's, he's being a horse for his children hasn't said they're riding unlike a horse.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:38

Okay, so Absolutely, yes. But even in the way a person carries themselves and the way that a person dresses

00:24:40 --> 00:24:53

you know, the scholars they talk about how a person when he's specifically they're talking about students of knowledge. So these are in the etiquettes of students of knowledge, but a person who like when you see a guy who's like 50 years old, and he's dressing like Musa who's 16

00:24:55 --> 00:24:56

Is that respectable?

00:24:57 --> 00:24:58

Are you like singling me

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


00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

But I wanted an example of somebody who doesn't know what he's doing when he gets dressed.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:06

I'm kidding, I'm kidding.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:08

Okay, so keep going.

00:25:10 --> 00:26:05

Let them dairy rubbish bin raw. We're in second called dama Cabela shaving show should know. So he says don't be late after rubbish a bobbin. Don't be deluded by youth. That is beautiful and goodly and complete. Don't be deluded by that youth. Because how many a young person has walked into old age? How many young person has walked into old age? Meaning how quickly do the teens go by? And then how quickly do the 20s go by? And then how quickly do the 30s go by? And how quickly and it just it just goes fast? So he says, Don't be deluded by that. Meaning that when you're young, don't make that your capital, just just that you're young, but take advantage of your youth. Take advantage of

00:26:05 --> 00:26:05

your youth

00:26:07 --> 00:26:41

in that which pleases Allah subhanaw taala take advantage of your youth realizing that how quickly it's going to go by and what you do in your youth Inshallah, to Allah is going to benefit you. If you take advantage of it for the rest of your life. I mean, it's it's a it's a beautiful opportunity that you have the Prophet sallallahu s&m says in the Hadith as reported by Buhari that many people know not everybody named Martin but wound fee market Filomena, NASA, there are two blessings that most people are deluded by, or many people are deluded by. Number one is health. And number two is spare time. The idea of having summers off.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:46

Can you imagine that person having like three months off every year,

00:26:48 --> 00:27:02

like when you're in school, it's like you just take it for granted. And then you graduate, and then you get your first job. And they're like, two weeks. You're like, what is this two weeks, I didn't sign up for two weeks. We'll have it to three months out of the year.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:17

And it's gone and it's gone for the rest of your life hollows and opportunities of learning continue and we talked about opportunities. But he says don't be don't be deluded by that. There's a beautiful, amazing statement by

00:27:18 --> 00:27:29

Abdullah the son of amphibian us, Abdullah, the son of Amrinder, the US was incredibly dedicated to worship of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:30 --> 00:27:55

So much so that on the night that he got married, the next day, his father, I'm living in the US, the great companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes and they're both great. He comes the next day to check in on his new daughter in law. He says How is ours? You know, how how's your husband all of that type of stuff. She's like, he was wonderful. He spent the entire night praying.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:03

So is that is proud of that? No, he's annoyed by that.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:28

Every every day has its moments and when you get married, that's not the time for you to be sitting there and Salah that's the time for you to be spending it with your wife. So he goes any complaints so Rasulullah cellulitis, Allah, and Rasulullah sallallahu SLM summons Abdullah Eben arbiter of loss and he tells them amongst a number of things he said, I heard that you complete the Quran in a single night.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

single night he couldn't please the Quran

00:28:33 --> 00:28:34

newlywed guy.

00:28:35 --> 00:28:52

He says don't do that. He said but only he do. He said read it and over an entire month. And Abdullah says to him Yeah, rasool Allah dionaea stented the Kuwaiti or Shabaab. It says Ya rasool Allah, He makes an amazing thing. He says, Let me enjoy my youth.

00:28:53 --> 00:29:04

He's like, let me enjoy my youth and my strength. Like I have the time now. To I'm young, I can, I can drink a Red Bull and I can be off for two days.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:13

Like I can do that right now. So let me enjoy my youth. Like when we say let me enjoy my youth, we mean the complete opposite.

00:29:14 --> 00:29:33

He's saying, Let me enjoy my youth to worship Allah Subhana. Allah dialler with an energy and an intensity and an ability and a strength that I won't have when I'm older. And the province the whole idea is and I've said to him, No, and he kept bringing it down, kept bringing it down, kept bringing it down, until he sold to him. He said don't complete the Quran in more than a week. That's your that's your limit.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:46

And then he did it for the rest of his life until finally, when he got older, he said I wish that I took the little salve Rasul Allah says, and I wish that I took his concession because right now it's hard for me, but he committed to it so he stayed. Yeah.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:59

NARRATION that says not to do in more than three days for those who aren't going to be able to understand it. But he gave him the ability for yes, the prophesy centum said that not

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

More than three days because whoever reads it in less than three days, they're not really going to be understanding it, they're going to be rushing through it. But at the same time, we do understand that there were many people who read it in less than three days with understanding. And so the province is on the lights and and for beta for those who are going to be rushing through it, and don't have that fluidity and mastery over the Quran to be able to do it. Otherwise, the narrations that came to us and nobody says Allah saw it cannot be counted the narrations that came to us of people who completed the Quran in a single night of them most famously that Earth man didn't follow

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

the line.

00:30:33 --> 00:30:34

Okay, keep going.

00:30:35 --> 00:31:22

Well, yeah, she be alone. So turnips, Callum. You're cool. Lemus mica fee, Lhasa T. Imara. No. So he says, yeah, for shape. Oh, brother. So he talked about young people. He said, Don't be deluded by your youth. Because it's quickly going to turn into old age if a person doesn't take advantage of it. Whether they take advantage of it or not. It's going to turn in to old age soon enough. So take advantage of it. And then he says yeah, shape. As for the person who already has white hairs a shape. If you were sincere to yourself, if you were sincere, if you were a good adviser to yourself, you would not indulge in what is it? Let me a calligraphy I love that, in pleasures, you would

00:31:22 --> 00:31:33

indulge yourself in pleasures left and right. You wouldn't indulge yourselves in pleasures left and right. Like you'd reach a point where you say, You know what I got to focus on meeting Allah Subhana Allah that I know.

00:31:35 --> 00:32:10

You know, sometimes, you might see the elderly and you're amazed that like, how committed they are to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala every salah they go to the message and what have you, that's a wise person. That's a wise person, a person who realizes, you know, sometimes you might see it in your own parents or your grandparents or what have you. They they will not go with you anywhere. Because it's the whole time. They will go with you. I sort of time mother time. Growing up, I didn't really understand it from some of the elders of my family. But then you get older and you're like, when someone's seeing their mortality in front of them. They're like, No, us like, I've enjoyed the

00:32:10 --> 00:32:30

dunya as much as I need to enjoy it. But now I'm focusing on this. And on the first week, we talked about that, how the scholar said that whoever has reached 40, they've entered into the marketplace of the Hereafter. And if a person lives in a natural life of 60 or 70, Ravi, now they ventured into the, the third chapter of their life.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:44

Allah knows best. Okay, so he says, if a person was sincere to themselves, when they see these white hairs, these white hairs are an indication of a person's journey to Allah subhanaw taala it's a it's a reminder.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:52

And so when you see it, that reminder from Allah subhanaw taala, that messenger from Allah, that you are reminded to,

00:32:54 --> 00:33:09

you know, to focus, HERBIE Shelby, better to do that. Also, have you been marovo Is the who we share your ball. So he says, let's just say hub.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:17

Let's just say for sake of argument that a person's youth,

00:33:18 --> 00:34:02

who are the rasa Abraham, that that is an excuse for, for that person to make mistakes. Let's just say the teenager, they're a teenager, they're dumb. They don't know what they're doing. Let's just say the young person there. They don't know. They're not wise. Yeah, all of that. But let's just say, even though he's not making the argument, he's just saying for the sake of argument, because otherwise, it's being young is not an excuse. If a person knows that something is haram Carlos, there's no excuse. Young, old. It's haram, ALLAH SubhanA. Allah forbade it. But he says, let's just say for argument's sake, that youth is an excuse. What is the excuse of che Honister? What O'Shea?

00:34:02 --> 00:34:02


00:34:04 --> 00:34:20

what is the excuse of somebody who's older? Who is diluted by shaytaan? Okay, you got tricked by shaitana 50 You're still getting tricked by faith on a 35 So getting tricked by fake 155 Still getting tricked by faith. 175 says that person has no excuse.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22

Lack of knowledge.

00:34:24 --> 00:34:28

They should have gained knowledge by now. Right? They should have they should have learned at this point.

00:34:30 --> 00:35:00

That's That's what he's saying. There's no excuse. There's no excuse that it's uglier. When a person who is older, still disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. They're seeing the signs, the white hairs, they're seeing their friends pass away. They're seeing their mortality. They're seeing they understand the the nature of the dunya now, they're not 14 and 15 thinking that they're immortal and living life like that. They are people who have should have been anchored and grounded now by the dunya. So he says what's the excuse of somebody?

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

Do you like that who's still being diluted by shaytaan? But guess what

00:35:04 --> 00:35:12

the province of Elijah Selim says in Buhari, that the heart of an old man stays young, when it comes to two things,

00:35:13 --> 00:35:19

the love of the dunya the love of money, and the hook for a long life.

00:35:20 --> 00:36:01

When you were 10, you were looking at 40 years old or 30 years old, like it was the end of the road, you're like 30 years old, If I lived to 30 years old, and Inshallah, then you get to these places and you're like, oh Sharla 40 shot in the 50 Shama 60, or 70. shovel, a shovel and at the promise of the license says that stays younger than a person that never gets old. People always still want more time. And they always still want the dunya they still want the dunya. So he says, There is no excuse and when someone who is elderly commit sins, especially when it comes to and there is an indication that he's talking about the sins of the flesh, it becomes even more problematic, becomes even more

00:36:01 --> 00:36:10

ugly, because this is a person whose body is becoming weaker and weaker and weaker. So for that person to still be lustful, is incredibly hideous.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:39

That's why the province of Allah Islam, he says, There are three people whom Allah subhanaw taala will not look will not look at on the Day of Judgment. There are three people whom Allah subhanaw taala will not look at on the Day of Judgment. Number one, he says, is a king who lives number two, he says is a old person che one Zanni a share who commit Zina an old man who commit Zina. And number three, he says is a poor person who is arrogant.

00:36:40 --> 00:37:10

Now I want you all to focus and I want the the genius of this evening to tell me what is the common thread between these three people? Number one, he says, a king who lies number two, he says an old person old man who commit Zina fornication or adultery. And number three is a poor person who's arrogant. What do you guys share? They have no need for like, why would a king want to lie when he has like a 40? Man? I'm so upset.

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

Yes, Abdullah felt sorry.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:22

The sense of delusion? No, I sure got it. Right. We're just

00:37:24 --> 00:37:25

I was just buying some time.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:47

Sure. Got it. Right. I'm the genius. The genius of our mystery tonight at Hamdulillah. It's a committing sins without a need for it. Okay, we understand why kids like kids are always overpowered by their parents and have you but why would the person who's in authority lies? Parent, why are you lying to your kid? You're in charge.

00:37:48 --> 00:37:54

Right? The king who lies the king, you are the ultimate authority. So why are you lying?

00:37:55 --> 00:38:05

The chef who commit Zina, Chef, not chef but you know, old old person, why are you committing Zina? Like you don't have that desire in the first place anymore?

00:38:07 --> 00:38:08


00:38:10 --> 00:38:28

we understand why the wealthy are our arrogance, resources, all these people around them and stuff like that. But when you don't have any of these things, it's usually abnorm. That person is normally broken into humility, by that poverty. So how can that person a person who is poor These are exceptional, exceptional sins?

00:38:30 --> 00:38:32

And so ALLAH SubhanA data does not look at them on the Day of Judgment.

00:38:34 --> 00:38:37

There's a story in reported by Buhari

00:38:38 --> 00:39:00

the hadith of Javid had been Somera he says that, no matter the law and who he had sadly been ABI Waqqas, as the governor over al Kufa, sad founded on Kufa is the General Government of Qatar. And he founded a coup for in Iraq. Like he's normally the founder of a city normally they would get like,

00:39:02 --> 00:39:10

you would name the city after him first of all, like it's like it's done here and they would get all sorts of recognition and an applause and all of that type of stuff.

00:39:12 --> 00:39:31

sad that people have a Kufa complaint or imminent Mahatama outside, or he got a number of complaints. He didn't get mass complaints, but he got one or two until the people of Iraq or Kufa in particular, they said had us you know, usually he doesn't even pray well. You're talking about sad, sad them no cos

00:39:32 --> 00:40:00

one of the 10 who was promised paradise, the first person to cast an arrow in the path of Allah subhanaw taala. The person who the province of Elijah said I'm sad for him what he didn't say for anybody else which is ill to me, I saw atrophy that could be what will me the province of Elijah sent him said side cast your arrow in a battle he said, he said cast your arrow sighs May my mother and father be sacrificed for you? He never said that for anybody else. Some narration that says that he said that for his wedding and I want but generally what is

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

Notice that he only said that for aside the medical costs side is a big big deal. Great, great companion. And the people will go for saying he's not even praying, right? So what I'm gonna do it I'm gonna sense Muhammad even a Muslim he sends a companion to go and investigate this manner. So he sends, even though OMA could very well set, y'all are crazy.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:36

I know sad, and he's not what you're describing, but no matter is the Khalifa and he's in charge of of, of investigating these matters. So he sends Mohammed de minimis Allah. Muhammad goes to the massage and he's asking people, What do y'all say about science? What do you say? Everybody Praise, praise, praise, praise praise.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:39

Except for one guy.

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

One guy gets up in the presence of sadness because he says,

00:40:45 --> 00:40:56

sad. He says, lie yesterday. Mysteria wala Yuck, the Surya Wallah. Yeah, I didn't feel worthy.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:06

He says sad, does not go out with the battalion stays at home doesn't go out with the troops.

00:41:07 --> 00:41:09

And number two, he doesn't distribute evenly.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:14

And number three, he doesn't judge with justice.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:58

And sad they're gonna walk us sad. I have to flashback. Back when he was with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam one time he asked the Prophet he said yeah Rasul Allah. Ask Allah that I be someone whose dua is always accepted. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam set aside, he says, I'll play by the hammock. He said make your food that you eat that you consume. plebe pure Khaled wholesome goodly your diet will be accepted. Make sure that your income, your sustenance, what you nourish yourself with your body is always handled and pure, and your diet will be accepted suicide is somebody who's dies except that he lived that lifestyle. So now we go back to a Kufa this guy is lying about sat

00:41:58 --> 00:42:02

and saying a little nursery rhyme to suicide said to him.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:07

I lay it says, He said to him, are you you're rhyming against me.

00:42:08 --> 00:42:13

So you're making rhymes against me. Now? This is what we're doing. So he said, Okay, I'm making out for three things.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:23

Yeah, he brought it out. He said, I'm making out for three things. Number one, he said Allahumma Houghton fakra. Number one, oh, Allah, prolong his poverty.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:26

Make him always broke.

00:42:29 --> 00:42:30

Make him always broke.

00:42:32 --> 00:42:44

And he's either going to be broke, or in debt broke or in debt. And both of them are stress and sadness and grief and a headache. He said up in UCLA. And then number two, he says, We're updated O'Meara and make his lifelong to

00:42:47 --> 00:42:48

make his life long.

00:42:49 --> 00:42:54

Let him see because Oh, my goodness, when you're broke, who do you go to?

00:42:55 --> 00:42:56

Who do you go to when you're broke?

00:42:57 --> 00:43:13

family, your friends. But now my man is gonna watch his family pass away. He's gonna watch his friends pass away. Eventually, you're going to look around every elderly person who's who you've seen in your life, your grandparents, great grandparents, there comes a time when,

00:43:15 --> 00:43:30

like, they're just done with the dunya. Then like, all of my friends, they're not there anymore. There's nobody, you know, my grandfather's family passed away. 80 years old. So a couple years back, and I have another great grandmother, who is trying to get her eyes fixed.

00:43:31 --> 00:43:40

And so I was sitting with my grandfather, and I was like, you know, so and so she wants to do a surgery for our eye. He was just looking at me. He's like, he could barely see himself. He's like, Who's he trying to see?

00:43:42 --> 00:43:45

He's like, who does you want to see? Like I was assuming it was like,

00:43:46 --> 00:43:49

there was nobody left. Like, okay, we're still here.

00:43:51 --> 00:43:53

Okay, okay. So

00:43:54 --> 00:44:05

hold off, like, I guess so. He says, hit me. He says. He says what? ATHLEAN phokeethra and make his lifelong. And then he says number three, he says,

00:44:06 --> 00:44:07

he says and

00:44:08 --> 00:44:21

he says and make him experience fit and make him experience trials and tribulations in his Deen. So what did that end up happening? A jab at he says the narrator he says I saw this man years later.

00:44:22 --> 00:44:28

And his his eyebrows were drooping over his eyelids because of his old age.

00:44:30 --> 00:44:31

And he would be

00:44:32 --> 00:44:36

he would be hitting on girls in the streets of Kufa.

00:44:38 --> 00:44:58

Old man sitting there teasing girls, young girls, blah, blah, blah. And then whenever he'd be out, they'd be saying to him, Look, this is embarrassing. Be ashamed of yourself. You say? I saw Bethany that were too sad. He said I was it's the dark side that got me the drive side. Okay, so this idea of

00:45:00 --> 00:45:24

how ugly it is when you have a person who, okay if you're young. These aren't excuses, but it can be understood. But when a person has lived life at some point you have to say call us. I'm done. Yes. Cool, though no, we in a lot higher will feel insha here Elmo, lesson one.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:36

And then beautifully he says, after he mentioned all of this and how ugly it is and all of that it could be all sins. Allah Subhana Allah forgives

00:45:38 --> 00:46:08

whether you're 24 whether you're 80 or whether you're 100 Kulu Allah subhanaw taala Fergus in che yah Maru, if a person carries two things, what are their loss and any man if a person has sincerity to Allah subhana wa Tada to repent? Allah Subhana Allah to Allah accepts everyone's repentance. There is no sin that a person commits in their life that Allah subhanaw taala does not forgive if they turn to Allah and say, Oh ALLAH forgive me.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:15

For person has faith and if a person has sincerity

00:46:17 --> 00:46:37

Yes, what cool look as Roofer In de Nyah Jabu one Nika. slit on, Dini, Jubal on he says an every brokenness, the religion fixes, but there is nothing that fixes the brokenness of a person's Deen

00:46:39 --> 00:47:05

every every brokenness that a person experiences, you will find in the deen relief, comfort, solace, you lose money. You know what to say? You know what to believe? You lose loved ones, you know that Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the One who has written everything. There is solace in everything. The Deen fixes everything. The only thing the only problem that can't be fixed is

00:47:07 --> 00:47:46

a brokenness in the religion itself. Meaning if a person's deen is broken, that's why over the MaHA Pablo the Allahu he said that there is no calamity, that experience except that there are four blessings that come with it. Every calamity, loss of health, wealth, children, whatever it is, there's four blessings. Number one, the first blessing is that it wasn't in my Deen, every calamity that I experienced in my dunya. I just said Hamdulillah. It wasn't in my Deen. That's blessing number one. Number two is that it wasn't bigger. It could always be bigger, every calamity that you experience could be bigger. I could have lost more money I could have lost. I could have gotten more

00:47:46 --> 00:47:58

sick. I could have lost more people I could have lost whatever it is. Number three, he says there's the blessing that I am not stripped of being content with Allah's decree

00:47:59 --> 00:48:14

that if I can say in Allahu ala Rajon, if I can still say Alhamdulillah that in and of itself is a great blessing that comes with that calamity. And number four, that I have a hope in being rewarded from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and experiencing this calamity.

00:48:16 --> 00:48:31

If you don't Graham has a beautiful statement. And if I remember correctly, it is a Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, but I'll have to check. And that is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said that Allah subhanaw taala may love a position for a person in Jannah

00:48:33 --> 00:48:38

Allah Subhana Allah loves for you to be here. But your actions do not bring you up here.

00:48:39 --> 00:48:50

Your actions only bring you here. So what does Allah subhana data do because he loves for you to have this place in Jannah. Allah subhanaw taala then sends you a calamity

00:48:51 --> 00:49:02

and then gives you the ability to be patient and through that patience, he raises you to the level that he wants. Okay, for Kulu he says all of the

00:49:03 --> 00:49:05

a quick look at some of the notable

00:49:07 --> 00:49:11

kinetic damage Braun keep going. Who has

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

been more has a button three Lehman? Yep, the tibia and a tibia. So he says, haha, I'm Thal. Mufasa Allah says aim of Asana Mahadeva. So he says take this as examples. These these wisdoms these verses that I'm giving you, he says take them as examples that I have chosen for you selected for you. Through it you have clarification and clarity or that I've given you through it incredible clarity. Keep going Mirbeau has

00:49:50 --> 00:49:52

worked Oberer also Yahoo

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

Cory Rocha has finally he says

00:50:00 --> 00:50:00


00:50:01 --> 00:50:14

these verses that I have given you that I have promised, you are going to be amazing and beautiful. Right at the beginning that introduction says that these verses that I told you were going to that I've sifted for you like pearls and gold is sifted.

00:50:16 --> 00:50:56

And he fulfilled that promise. We did go over these verses. And this man, even when he wrote the poor, he said that this is going to be something of incredible benefit. And Allah Subhana Allah made it of incredible benefit that I will boosting in Afghanistan is being read in Houston, Texas, a place that he didn't even know existed at that period of time. That's what happens when Allah subhanaw taala accepts, he said, even though it was it, it wasn't written by Hassan Ibn sabots. This pole it wasn't written by the great poet of the companions, who Rasulullah sallallahu. s&m told him that the Holy Spirit is with you when you write attacking Quraysh says at the same time, I'm not

00:50:56 --> 00:51:06

harmed by the fact that it wasn't written by her side underneath of it. These are bars, these are incredible verses that have been sifted for you. And so this is

00:51:08 --> 00:51:40

Albus this poem, and we ask Allah azza wa jal to have mercy on are boosted the author and to accept from him and to accept from us as well and to make us of those who when they read and they learn and they study that it doesn't just become something that they experienced once, but that they benefit from it by being able to practice it. Because knowledge stays when it is practiced. And when it is not practiced, it leaves and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. Cool, let's break from a little bit Sharla todos the lightest Muhammad
