00:06:20--> 00:06:31

is mentioned in the Quran to be patient and in blue in the face of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala recommended this to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said was wellness second.

And a southern island Masia to be patient against the scent meaning to endure the temptation to be resistant to the temptation of sin.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

Sin of beautified

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

in the Hadees, the famous hadith of gibreel alayhis salaam that will also handle it Allah created Elgin

00:07:17--> 00:07:27

created paradise. He asked gibreel to go and see it, check it out. And as the breeze checked out the pleasures of Paradise, he came to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he said,

00:07:29--> 00:07:36

I don't think anybody would hear this gentleman would not come to it would not do enough to be an engineer.

00:07:37--> 00:08:28

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala put around the agenda, the hard things, all the things that a human being has to suffer, has to endure, has sets agenda to carry, the things that people have to do, to get into gentlemen, the things the difficult things. And then gibreel said, cachito Allah, Allah had I'm afraid that nobody can get there. And then Allah Subhana Allah created Hellfire, and he showed it to debris. And debris is said, anybody who would hear of it cannot go into it would sleep on it would do anything not to be afflicted by the torment of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Johanna. And then it was surrounded with desires and temptation, her fighting Johanna MUGISHA what the hell fire was,

00:08:29--> 00:08:42

was was surrounded was was further all around it is all these desires, that temptation. So people go to to fulfill their desires. And so in the pit of the Hellfire when a tequila.

00:08:44--> 00:08:50

So, the seven, to be patient and not to fall into this temptation.

00:08:52--> 00:08:52

And

00:08:54--> 00:09:28

the third type of seven, the third type of patience is to be patient and satisfied and pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times, even in a town of a calamity, even if it's a time when someone or some group of people is afflicted by a calamity or adversity or a catastrophe. And whether that is a test from Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala and spirit and Baqarah verse 155 said, when a condition

00:09:30--> 00:09:38

when June why not submit a man with emphasis thammarat where the shift is Saturday and levena eager

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

to call you in la la, la

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

la

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

la ecohome Allah subhanaw taala said in that beautiful verse, he said, we will test you we will be afflicted with some fear.

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

insecurity

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

will Judah and some hunger

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

famine

00:10:04--> 00:10:15

and lack of money, lack of resources, when emphasis and lack of life would be afflicted with loss of life, with similar art and foods and the harvest.

00:10:16--> 00:10:33

Well, that [???] is slavery, the good the glad tidings for those who do those who have patience, and the face of that test also has given us this scenario here. So you will be tested. Here's what the test is going to be about. And those who succeed in this test are those who have suffered

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

severe trauma see that

00:10:37--> 00:10:57

la nearly Harajuku they're afflicted with these catastrophes, they say we are to Allah and our return is to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah this would have seized this blessing from Allah subhana wa to Allah wa rahmatullah mercy and mercy from Allah subhanaw taala. And those are the ones who guided or guided

00:10:59--> 00:11:13

some of the things that help the believer to achieve this state of patience the state of Southern or taqwa, to have the fear of Allah Subhana Allah to have a tough one. Because Allah, Allah said women with

00:11:14--> 00:11:24

Maharajah, those who have Taqwa Allah subhanaw taala, Allah subhanaw taala will take him out of the difficult and hardship situation, the situation that they are in.

00:11:26--> 00:11:53

And the other thing is the mention of Allah subhanaw taala the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the example of that is the Prophet Yunus when he was hit with a calamity and he was swallowed by the wall and as he's in the in the stomach of that well, he started making disappears Leyla halen does a panic and you can do no volume. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah Who can I mean,

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

there is no visa fee. But

00:11:57--> 00:12:13

if it's not for his this V, if it's not for his nation and follow us, to Allah, that calamity would, would have stayed for him to the Day of Judgment, but I must have had an attack that Satan and the other thing is an Easter fall is to ask forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:17--> 00:12:45

And finally, his advice is to ask Allah subhanaw taala to lift the calamity, and lift the adversity and to help the believer help the moment to endure and be patient. Sometimes, patience is not already in there. But we have to ask Allah subhanaw taala to help to be able to endure these tests. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to help to be able to stand the calamity to stand the test that Allah subhanaw taala has sent for us.

00:12:46--> 00:12:57

And that's how the Sahaba saw this test and live this test. And being armed with these concepts that we just mentioned, being armed with belief.

00:12:58--> 00:13:24

The deep strain believes that Allah subhanho wa Taala they were able to achieve the station of endures, they were able to achieve the station of civil and that status. And the best example of that was living among them was the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and is now to even magic and also an invalid copy that

00:13:27--> 00:13:31

came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was ill.

00:13:32--> 00:13:49

He was, he had a disease, he had some sickness, and he had fever. And I will say he put his hand on the garment of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and felt the heat of the body of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he said, Masha,

00:13:50--> 00:14:36

Allah ha so how high is he a fever of Prophet of Allah subhanaw taala he felt, he felt so sad for for this situation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said this fever is way too high. And the process of learning was seldom said in karateka meaning we are the prophets the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala you should be to Allah, Allah, we are our calamity is is more is actually more severe. The test for the profit is worse. We don't feel the profits are isolated from from this from this test. Allah subhanaw taala test his service and he tests his profits as well. And he said we have a very severe calamity and most of the attacks when

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

we have more reward, this calamity and then a besides severe rasulillah shabbiness, Ebola, who are the people that are tested the worst? Who are people that are the most with such a hard test, and also masala lamb, the prophets. The prophets are actually the one that are tested the hardest

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

among people and then aside from women who then do and then he said the scholars the people that know what kind of talented people but know that matters those are people that are hit also with calamity with endure, the higher the level the person will be the hire the testers see this paradises doesn't come cheap and hesitant and typically gentlemen, well in my ethical method, Latina Holloman publikum, my settlement that Sal de la, I've also heard Allah said you think you can enter to paradise, and the example of this before you did not afflict you, they were hit with calamity and adversity, until even the prophet and those who believe with him, they would say, when is the when

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

is this going to be over?

00:15:49--> 00:15:53

When is the support of Allah is the help of Allah, Allah.

00:15:54--> 00:16:15

Indeed, the support and help and the victory for more lies close. So this gentleman, this paradise that we inshallah old would be in and hope for, doesn't come cheap, doesn't come easy. We have to do something, we have to do it, we have to persevere, inshallah, to get there. And he said, he said, This collars

00:16:16--> 00:16:32

from them, and then who he said, We are sorry, who arrived to the righteous people, the people of righteousness, the good people, they will be hit with calamity. And then came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, You're rasulillah I love you.

00:16:33--> 00:16:33

I love you.

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

And he said,

00:16:41--> 00:17:25

you love Allah subhanho wa Taala. And his process, he said, You will be tested, if you are offering it, and it's fair. It's not that Allah Subhana Allah hates those who love Him and love his prophets of Allah to send them as I claim, for example, that I am the best driver in the world, say, Just show me, at least, you know, get me on the on the rounds here for a couple of times, if I claim I'm the, I'm the best mountain climber in the world, we said, okay, we'll just go and see how you do it. And if we claim that we are deserving of the agenda, we are deserving of paradise. And we love Allah subhanaw taala enough, and we have this faith in our heart. Now, this is simply a test that to show

00:17:25--> 00:17:51

us if we weren't here not. Because I was Hank Allah knows. But sometimes we don't, we think that we have a higher degree or we have stronger faith that we actually do. And Allah Subhana Allah said, this, this calamity. So this this test, to show us and sometimes to elevate us to elevate our station by proving that we shot a lot be able to do this.

00:17:52--> 00:17:59

And the Prophet sallallahu ascendance said about the people before us, he said Canada ahead of them with 10 herbal companies,

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

some of them will be hit with a calamity like the skin diseases in mice and fill the dead from it.

00:18:12--> 00:18:25

And some of them will be hit with poverty. The poor, they find nothing that's their cover what they've covered their body, let's send them that the one garments that will cover their body when a heavy one can

00:18:26--> 00:18:26

do

00:18:29--> 00:18:31

and he said one of them and

00:18:33--> 00:18:42

they love the test from Allah subhanaw taala more than you love, they love the calamity. Maria we love the the prosperity and the good times.

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

The Sahaba would not have

00:18:51--> 00:19:17

understood that and that was very important. The whole time actually for for the Dow and for a slump. But it was most important in the very early days. Those who Allah subhanaw taala specified as a service. Those are in the forefront, the one that are have a special station with Allah subhanho wa Taala and paradise. They have to endure the worst.

00:19:19--> 00:19:44

They assume Muslims in luck as we studied during the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this Muslims unanimously, with no exception have to be subjected to prosecution. They had all of them were beaten up. All of them were tortured and tormented, even the the noble people of them even Abu Bakr, Sylvia,

00:19:46--> 00:19:46

even Omar

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

so how is variable and who requirements and who

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

stays on families many times

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

we say hi

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

Simon

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

A cos was tormented by their own mothers, because of the following through this religion

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

as a word he was terminated by his uncle.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

And everyone will go his family was taken and

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

we know how big of an roba

00:20:22--> 00:20:26

the the the Sicilians slave of familia,

00:20:28--> 00:20:59

and he rejected the idols and all he knew about Islam is one word. I hadn't had, that he is one, that Allah subhanaw taala is one, and so that he would be taken and be whipped in the heat of the desert. And then they will put a heart he would walk on his body, so he can be grilled, and the heat of the scent of Arabia, and he continues to say I hadn't I had a marble. Yes, sir, that the last

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

one in the whole family of Yes, sir. were taken by Abuja. And they were tormented. And he killed his mother, the mother of our modern front of his eyes, for refusing to curse the eye for refusing to curse Islam and for for refusing to praise the idols, then yes, of himself was killed. And all of that in front of the eyes of Amara vinyasa.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Or the alongside

00:21:31--> 00:21:45

the Sahara they had to do, if they don't have the strong values, it's not easy to, to to really stand that test. If they don't have that deep belief in their hearts.

00:21:48--> 00:22:04

Art came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and showed him his back, and his back was burned beyond recognition, because the welder that was very weak man, and he was a poor man in life, and he had no protection, and they did whatever they need to do with combat.

00:22:06--> 00:22:18

And he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his back was burned so severely, because that's how they thought of that. And before he asked the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, he said, that

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

once you pray for us to

00:22:22--> 00:22:25

live this calamity, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could,

00:22:27--> 00:23:13

to real quick, and we saw how Allah Subhana, Allah gave Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam many opportunities to ruin the whole entire city of snitker. And when they mistreated the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted to teach a Sahaba lesson, his companion lesson that would be with them, and deal with this forever. And that is the lesson of endurance, the lesson of silver. So he tells Tibet, he said, the people before you, they will be brought before the mentors, and they will be sewn into two halves, and a hole in the ground. And that will not change their belief, not one bit, that their faith would not be shaken, if they're

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

sewn into two has a life and a hole in the ground.

00:23:18--> 00:23:33

And then he thought that he gave him the black tie. He said this religion will be there, this religion will be hired is the religion of Allah subhana wa Taala there's a promise from the last 100 Allah that this religion will be victorious. He said that don't rush it, then haste and he said will

00:23:34--> 00:23:39

you do that you wish this was the camera to Allah has his own schedule.

00:23:41--> 00:23:54

An insane human agile, the human being wants to rush things, when things immediately we want instant gratification. We raise our hands when we want it, we want the response before our hands go there.

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

But Allah Subhana Allah has a different way

00:24:00--> 00:24:10

and has a different calendar. And unless 100 of Allah doesn't turn the drop down from the believer, who is sincere, and there are

00:24:11--> 00:24:56

and then that does not end, and the Sahaba had to do a different type of different type of calamity. And so Pamela, every time we read the life of the Sahaba, with the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, we see that they had to go through all types of changes. And it's like an example for all of us. So whatever happened to this? Later on, we can always go back and find the reference of what happened to them. There is actually an embargo there were sanctions on the Sahaba in Mecca, and they had a siege there is a sea German Sahaba in the valley in a fork of the valley called the valley with autopilot because that's where I will follow him and his people were and they were locked into

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

that valley and no trade was allowed with him. The trade

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

doesn't always mean that you can't make money. You cannot buy food.

00:25:05--> 00:25:15

You cannot buy food in Makkah, if you are a Muslim, you cannot learn in my class, you are a Muslim, you cannot sell goods and if you are a Muslim,

00:25:17--> 00:25:52

and they will sit with salmon, they are hungry. And the Sahaba described how all of them had to eat the leaves off the trees. And even one of the Sahaba described how he saw a skin dry skin of an animal, but animal dry skin acidic animal, and he took it and that was his meal. That's the only thing they could find to eat. They hit with that embargo for three years. And it's in the history of the power of this early Tao.

00:25:54--> 00:26:23

And they enjoyed it. And none of them, not one of them, went back to Mecca. And he said I'm not a Muslim anymore, sell me some food. Now one of them. Now one went back from the word of Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And they all became an example. All this first generation, the savvy, the forefront people, all of them became the greatest example for the insurance during 13 years of the meccan period.

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

But the test wasn't over.

00:26:26--> 00:26:44

The test got even harder because Allah subhanaw taala ordered them to leave their homes and leave their properties and leave their families and go on on a journey of emigration from Mecca to Medina and before that, from Mecca to Al Habesha to other center.

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

And leaving home is not an easy thing.

00:26:51--> 00:27:12

Leaving for immigration, leaving everything behind. Do you remember when Abu Bakr left he had he left everything, even his family his home behind? When so Helga Rooney so hide abuse in our last session, when he had to leave Mecca, and he was caught on the way he gave.

00:27:14--> 00:27:20

All his property. He was the man in luck. He gave him everything he has.

00:27:21--> 00:27:27

And he went to Medina was one thing La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, he had nothing.

00:27:30--> 00:28:04

He had about five door him, he had about, he was a man from a very wealthy family, and he left it all behind. And all these people went to Medina was nothing but La Ilaha Illa, Allah, Muhammad Rasul, Allah, and those who took some money with them all in the service of Allah subhana wa Tada. So here comes the test of endurance, the test of integration, and the test of giving, and the test of sharing that came to the fore. And we saw how he unsolved a standard

00:28:06--> 00:28:14

generously into that test, and how they shared everything with their brothers. Even the authority that hosted them,

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

had two wives that he offered him, he said, our diverse one for you. And I will reverse upon you choose.

00:28:22--> 00:28:30

They wanted to share everything with them. So I'll give you half of my wealth has a smart house, and you can take half of my family.

00:28:31--> 00:28:38

I mean, this is this is a very high degree of understanding that this stuff insurance.

00:28:42--> 00:29:10

And then the rest came from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah de la casa Luna de en la humbling. Allah subhanaw taala gives permission to those who have been oppressed to those who have been thought of is that they have the wall and Allah Subhana Allah is able to make them victorious. And that was the permission of jihad, permission of taking arms against your oppressor for permission to take self defense into your hand.

00:29:11--> 00:29:38

And then they had to enjoy the test of better and they had the end of the test of 100. And after immediately after 100 and move with the after the disaster of 100. They were enduring a small battle called Hamas I said when they had to immediately leave after chasing the actually victorious Kureishi army, chasing him out of the outskirts of Medina.

00:29:40--> 00:29:42

And when came the siege of

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

a very harsh test for the Sahaba

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

when 10,000 fighters came and surrounded Medina

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

and the trench was dug, to protect Medina and then we relied on the promises of Corolla

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

The Jewish tribes in the south to protect their back. And they were fighting that up front. And then what happened the treachery of

00:30:09--> 00:30:26

the treachery of Colorado that opened the dots of Muslims. And Alaska, Canada kind of described that that moment when the Muslim felt like they're gone that this is over that the ice and water fan of France and Croatia is opening their backs,

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

that their hearts when the floats are of

00:30:34--> 00:30:44

their hearts when they felt so when we will do those three. They say okay, well we're gonna give up this day, we're gonna give up this tower. They interviewed

00:30:45--> 00:30:54

and they have the server has been Allahu Allah has enough for us. Allah has enough for us. And he is the best to rely on.

00:30:56--> 00:31:03

And then they had to endure some of the worst catastrophes by losing their profits.

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam died.

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

It was a very, very harsh test.

00:31:13--> 00:31:23

is a test that Mr. moussaka as you talking about a strong man with a strong character, and a strong will, that is,

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

now even Mr. moussaka could not tolerate that test.

00:31:31--> 00:31:37

And so while he said no the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't die. And then then comes Abu Bakr

00:31:38--> 00:31:55

and they said, those who worship Mohamed Salah Mohali, who send them and let them know that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has died is that he passed, but those who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, the know that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not die, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is there.

00:31:56--> 00:32:22

And then they have to deal with all these events that followed the passing away of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when entire Arabia, the entire Peninsula, except for the city of Medina, and the city of Mecca, rebelled against them. Everything turned around, all the tables returned immediately after the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they have to go out and find it all over again.

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

And do it.

00:32:26--> 00:32:39

And they almost lost their entire army in the Battle of Fallujah, mela 1000 of the people that actually have the Koran, of the Sahaba were killed, and many others, and that one battle.

00:32:40--> 00:32:59

And they almost defeated three times in that one battle of failure man, and they didn't do and they kept on. And immediately after they went home, and they established a religion in Arabia, Abu Bakar said, it's not a river, there is a snake up north as closure and dissension.

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

And you have to go and defend Islam and spread Islam. And then why not?

00:33:07--> 00:33:18

The lives of this people as an ongoing continuum. And just we're just reciting here we're just saying how this one stage after the other when these people Western enjoyed life.

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

You tell them when they say this is time to retire.

00:33:26--> 00:33:31

Never Never Yuval Ansari on the law and

00:33:32--> 00:33:42

he kept in spreading Islam until he was 90 to 93 years old, according to the scholars, and he is now in concert in Istanbul

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

because he went with the Muslim army in his 90s

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

to spread Islam.

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

And he died there at the walls of Constantinople.

00:33:55--> 00:34:33

And he was buried there because study number was not conquered. And he died in the siege, that first Siege of that city. These were the Sahaba they've dedicated their entire life from the De La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah to the day they said Lie, Lie lie lie in front of the angel of death. Muhammad Rasul Allah, this entire life was dedicated to Islam. And anything that happened to them, they endured any calamity that had them, they endured it, poverty, loss of life, loss of children.

00:34:35--> 00:34:57

Loss of loss of anything, was not an issue. Because it's also a law and it's all going back to Allah in Melilla, point la urogen. This word that we say we be understood, actually what it means. It's all from Allah, including this body, including this life, and it's all going back to Allah

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

and it's all dedicated

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

As a service of homeless,

00:35:02--> 00:35:11

because we are the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala we are committed to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to put our lives in the service of Allah.

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

We said, I do the walk, we are the studies of Allah

00:35:19--> 00:35:31

dedicated their life over actions into the service of Allah subhana wa Tada. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala put us on their bath staff, and to let us follow the example

00:35:36--> 00:35:49

some of the stones of Indians and be impatient on the calamity, as well as reported when the Sahaba and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam were faced with the death of somebody that is dear to them.

00:35:50--> 00:36:00

And that is the worst catastrophe. That is the worst problem is when you lose someone you love, the loss of a loved one.

00:36:01--> 00:36:05

And one of the things that the scholars

00:36:06--> 00:36:19

narrate is when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam lost the profits on money or Ceylon had seven children at four brothers and three sons and all of them except Fatima died in their life.

00:36:20--> 00:36:27

Now for family, there is no harder test brothers and sisters than losing a child.

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us some patience for those who have

00:36:33--> 00:36:46

and to save us from from from that calamity. Because if you don't ask Allah Subhana Allah, it catastrophe to show endurance, Southern la Sol afio Yes, almost pantalla safety and we are so lost to Allah did health.

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was tested with six of his children.

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

He buried six out of seven and his life.

00:36:58--> 00:37:02

And one time his youngest one Ibrahim,

00:37:03--> 00:37:33

who is the son of Maria, the cryptic the Egyptian blah, blah, blah. He was sick and he was dying in the hands of the prophets and Mr. Halverson, this is now upon MSF and Malik w Allahu Allah. And he said, he Brahim Allahu Allah QB FC Dania de Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I saw him dying in the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's the son dying in his hands. The Prophet solomani Listen,

00:37:34--> 00:37:44

but then I know Sula and through the eyes of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam teared up. And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Ted's merline

00:37:46--> 00:38:05

Indeed, the I can be theory and the heart is saddened. Well, Lana, Hulu Ilana Europeana and we will not say anything that will not please Allah subhanho wa Taala we will not object will not say why. Why me? Why my son Well, I'm the prophets.

00:38:08--> 00:38:25

So then the COVID-19 we will not say anything that would not please Allah Tanner with that. Well, in Nigeria, Ibrahim will be Kalamazoo. But we are indeed sad, because you're departing us and right. But this is the example that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave for Sahaba.

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

One of the stories of

00:38:37--> 00:38:52

being having this this patience and endurance is what happened to a woman in the Battle of better this woman had her son Howdy. And how he felt was one of those very young man who came out with a prophet sallallahu wasallam. He's one of the unfought

00:38:53--> 00:39:16

and he went with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of the and he was one of the people one of the lookouts, one of the people that his job was to look out and scan and survey the battlefield. And as he was doing that, and even before the battle started, and arrow came from, they didn't even know where and flip haritha and killed him.

00:39:17--> 00:39:24

So his mother was actually with the army coming out with the army. And she answered the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

Her son is dead, right there.

00:39:29--> 00:39:40

And this is one of the first people that actually killed even before the battle started. And she said we had a lot of Indian harissa in Canada from gymnasts. He said that what

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

he said, tell me that

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

if he is in Paradise, then I would have supper. I will be patient. Otherwise I will show a low and I can do show a lot. How will I can cry. Oh, she's very sad and she's very hurt.

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

By seeing the body of herself

00:40:03--> 00:40:30

and then Proxima Mohali, he was someone said, well, hockey I had been engaged in Latin wahida. He said, Are you are you? Did you lose your mind? Do you think it's one paragraph? Do you think it's one? Or do you think it's one gentleman that he is in now? He said in the head, you know, it is it is multiples fluval. And in one nation, it's eight. And he said we're in a murky or saw that for both said Allah and your sons in the highest Paradise

00:40:31--> 00:40:39

is in the highest station of paradise. And in the narration, said Raja. Huck, she went back and she was smiling.

00:40:40--> 00:40:50

She said back in back in Yeah, haritha Oh, you lucky harissa. She was happy for her son, that died right there, because she knew where he was.

00:40:51--> 00:41:25

And one of the story of that being patient and have the faith. When a calamity like this happen is a story that we narrated before about a mousseline and I will call her. The only son used to be married to the father of Malika than Ennis. She is the mother of a medic. She is the mother of nscd Malik. But his Ms. openelec father died, and he was not a Muslim. So I will tell whoever was not a Muslim came to me and asked her hand in marriage.

00:41:26--> 00:41:37

But she was a Muslim. And he was not. So he came to her. And she said, No, I will not marry because we are not a Muslim.

00:41:39--> 00:42:00

And he said, Well, your dowry is golden silver, but I'm offering you his golden silver for marriage and you have children you need, you need that. And she said, I will not marry you. As long as you're a cafe. He said, so what do I need to do? I said, you go to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you become a Muslim.

00:42:01--> 00:42:04

And that would be my dowry, that would be my mom.

00:42:05--> 00:42:21

And he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. When he saw and he said, I seen his face Islam, he actually had faith in his his face given to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married almost solely to Abu talhah.

00:42:22--> 00:42:53

And, and her My heart was Islam was Laila hi Lola, Mohammed Rasulullah. And they were given a son, Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah, bless them with a son. And one son, the son became very ill became very feverish. And other Paul Howard loved his son so much. And he was very worried about his son. And he would make sure that his son is getting the best care. And one time he left the house, and his son died in his absence.

00:42:54--> 00:43:03

And then he came back to the house. And he saw his wife in her best garments, and her best appearance.

00:43:04--> 00:43:22

And he didn't feel like something was wrong in the house. And he said, muslin are soggy. What happened with the sun? What happened with the boy wants to make sure. And she said hi Rama can He's doing well. He is resting well. He is was resting very well. He was dead.

00:43:23--> 00:43:28

And then she brought him dinner, and they ate dinner. She let them rest.

00:43:29--> 00:43:32

And then after that, she said, I will tell her Yeah, that's a

00:43:36--> 00:43:36

mechanical

00:43:38--> 00:43:54

law. I want to tell you about something. He said, some people bird, something from others, and they kept this vault item for a long time. And then the people let them get that thing. What are

00:43:56--> 00:44:01

they sent asking for what they own? They sent asking for what they have. So

00:44:05--> 00:44:21

those people who borrowed this, would they should they be saddened when they return it back? He said no. This is not theirs in the first place. It was something in their custody for a while, but it's not theirs. And then he said saying the law has started daddy.

00:44:23--> 00:44:26

Then Allah Subhana Allah took back what he has given us.

00:44:28--> 00:44:59

And he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he told him what happened. This is what Sally did. And the prophets and the Mohali. He sent them said, well let me back and you've been helped a lot with a lot of hands on with the IMF, the Quran, Allah Allah, He said for her patience of her losing her son, Allah subhanaw taala send this send her another son, and almost 100 to Allah blessed in their offsprings. And one of the scholars said in there

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

offsprings they would nine children, nine sons, all of them, memorize the Quran, all of them were half of the Quran, because of as a reward for her endurance and her patience.

00:45:17--> 00:45:58

Allah Subhana Allah recommended patience and endurance and muscle have understood the concept and lift the concept. And if not for that, they would not be able to actually deliver the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the earth, they would not be able to conquer the two major superpowers that that will exist in in their time, they will see the end of the earth in viewed all the separation from their family endured the hardship of spreading the word of Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And all the calamities that come with that In the name of Allah and Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah.

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

And that is the example that will take up the life of the Sahaba. And that is one of the attributes of the Sahaba voila, Holly,

00:46:08--> 00:46:14

there's any comments about this Sharla You go ahead. And otherwise, we'll go to the second attribute of today.

00:46:21--> 00:46:47

The second attribute of the Sahaba that we will Sharla study tonight as a colossal humbleness. humbleness among the Sahaba is to understand this sin, of not being humble, to understand how big of a problem in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala for a person for a human being that was created by Allah subhanaw taala to the arrogance, to be boastful

00:46:48--> 00:46:57

for a human being to think that they own their own destiny, and they control their own destiny, and not to give that to a loss of Hannah like that.

00:46:58--> 00:47:12

And then Have you felt good C. And D from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam In the name of Allah subhanho on the words of Allah Subhana Allah He said, Allah knows Hannah with a column alphabetically and Kibriya every day will allow women to

00:47:13--> 00:47:32

nominate them in Houma cars. cars have to move in now. Unless the panel said pride is my garments and greatness is my belt. Those who wants to take any one of them from me, they will be thrown in the Hellfire

00:47:34--> 00:47:35

pride

00:47:36--> 00:47:40

is to Allah subhana wa tada and human being cannot be arrogant.

00:47:41--> 00:47:50

Allah Subhana Allah Allah explained to us in details, what was the very first sin? What was the the beginning

00:47:51--> 00:48:02

of all sins is the sin of pride, the sin of arrogance? How did that happen? When Allah Subhana Allah Allah created Adam, and Iblees

00:48:04--> 00:48:24

shaitan Satan was with the group of angels and scholars say he was the chief of the group of angels. And when Allah subhanaw taala ordered the angels to bow down to prostrate in greeting to add money seller, what is it that is to be added?

00:48:26--> 00:48:45

As we said, What Allah said to the angels Prostrate to Adam so they frustrated in niveles, acceptably Abba refused, was stackable. The stackable, he had proud. He was proud. He was arrogant for him in his cassadine and he was one of the rejecters

00:48:46--> 00:49:02

color name America NFS Juba in a motto, Allah subhanaw taala said, What prevented you from prostrating and I am urging you Allah Subhana Allah is giving a direct order for this slave of his to prostrate

00:49:04--> 00:49:08

color and a halal mint. I am better than

00:49:09--> 00:49:11

that is the arrogance.

00:49:12--> 00:49:27

That is the greatest sin that started the sin of this obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala the root of this obedience of a police to Allah Subhana Allah started with I am better than him.

00:49:29--> 00:49:44

That's why many of the Muslims when they say AI or ml, so I hear a lot in the Middle East. He said I was laughing and I take refuge of Allah subhanaw taala from AI because this AI is what both of these lists. Look at me.

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

And

00:49:47--> 00:49:48

I am better than him.

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

carnac now You created me out of fire.

00:49:55--> 00:49:56

He created in some mud.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

said I am better than him.

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

How can I first say to him

00:50:03--> 00:50:39

and that is the pride that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about not to be proud of your religion, not to be, you know, proud of your achievements in a way, but to be arrogant, to be boastful to feel like you're actually better. Because of that, too. If we have a less diverse, let's say physical strength, we feel like we're better than the weak people. If unless Allah gave us love, we feel like better than we're better than the poor people of Allah gave us the ability to acquire knowledge or the means to acquire knowledge, if you look actually better than other people.

00:50:41--> 00:50:48

And who is not, is according to Allah Subhana Allah and His Prophet is all that taqwa.

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

Now for Allah, Jamie

00:50:54--> 00:50:54

taqwa,

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

masala Salim said there is no preference, there is no favor, there is no

00:51:00--> 00:51:12

advance and there is no advantage for an Arab or the non Arab. or black or white over black except the taqwa who can scare the taqwa. Who can say

00:51:14--> 00:51:22

Mohammed, Sani Allah subhanaw. taala is in the heart, who can see the heart who can see what's inside.

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

So they

00:51:25--> 00:51:54

can say I am better than that other slave, for whatever reason, for whatever reason, he said, Every time I see a human being, I think they're better than me. Even if they were non Muslims. They said, How is that enough? I mean, Muslims or non Muslims, he said, I don't know, maybe I at the end of my life, I will turn around and they will become Muslim. When we die, he will be better than so he never looked down to anyone.

00:51:57--> 00:52:09

And this is really an essential message in Islam. You don't look down at anybody, no matter no matter what the social, economic, anything situation.

00:52:10--> 00:52:36

If we feel like we're looking down on anyone, we have sort of viewed the man from the beginning, we have to review our faith. And this disease of arrogance, this disease of Cuba can go can show itself in three things. And the heart, people actually feel they convinced themselves actually better than others, or at least some others. And the other thing it shows and acts, it shows in their actions.

00:52:37--> 00:53:04

Sometimes we can feel people try not to mingle with a certain group, because they feel like they're better than not to accept things from certain people, because they feel like they're better than them, or the way they talk to people, or the gestures. Sometimes a little gesture, can convey a message that I'm better than to statement. And sometimes we'll be talking down to people.

00:53:05--> 00:53:26

And so Pamela, we're in a society that we see a lot of that and I'm not talking among Muslims, only Sharla would not happen among Muslims. But we see that in the community at large. This is a society that puts a lot of value into materialism. If you have more, you are worth more than you're better than others.

00:53:28--> 00:53:36

And if you have higher degrees, then you're better than others. If you're the boss, then you're better than the bossy employee.

00:53:37--> 00:53:39

And this is an Islam doesn't exist.

00:53:40--> 00:53:45

Even in a commander and a follower situation.

00:53:46--> 00:54:04

They both they feel like they're equal, that they have a writer for deviance because of a leadership position, nothing more, nothing less. It doesn't mean that delivers better than the one that is following in those in those examples of that. There's definitely examples of that.

00:54:05--> 00:54:10

But Abu Bakr saavik was the lead in expeditions by many other Sahaba.

00:54:12--> 00:54:29

And we know he was one of the he is the best. So how he is the number two among the Sahaba after the Prophet similan he was sending and in the last exposition of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he sent an AMA and service in the army officer.

00:54:31--> 00:54:36

There is no better invest. They're all equal in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:54:41--> 00:54:51

And Allah Subhana Allah enjoined even upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be humble. What felt generous Jenna hi kalamunda Canyon.

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

Allah Subhana Allah says prophet Logan we don't have the ring in Arabic is a kiss. It's a picture of speech.

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

That means you have to be humble.

00:55:03--> 00:55:08

Because Allah Subhana, Allah said to you, when we treat our parents, what's the level manager now has been leading

00:55:09--> 00:55:12

the way with humility, out of mercy to your parents.

00:55:13--> 00:55:16

And Allah Subhana, Allah has given the same

00:55:17--> 00:55:19

commands to his own Prophet, he said, what

00:55:21--> 00:55:22

we need, and

00:55:23--> 00:55:36

for those who follow you out of the believer, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, we will see in his whole life was so humble. But it's also a direct recommendation for us for the rest of us,

00:55:37--> 00:55:39

selling his profit the best of

00:55:40--> 00:55:51

the best man or men who ever walked the face of the earth, literally you wink. Be humble. So what is for the rest of us should do? And why should I was behind to begin with.

00:55:52--> 00:55:54

It's nothing higher status than the profit.

00:55:57--> 00:56:01

And then, on the authority of Islam, on the authority of

00:56:09--> 00:56:09

the

00:56:13--> 00:56:24

Muslim, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed to me that you should be humble, that you humble yourself. So know that he can be proud of or the other, no arrogance among Muslims, well,

00:56:26--> 00:56:36

nobody can warn others. If someone feels like he's better or she's better than the other person, then that is a setup. So that person can be given things to the other person.

00:56:37--> 00:57:05

That is the fact of the matter. And we see nations when the other nations because they feel that they're better than the other nations should be enslaved by them. The resources should be dedicated for the benefit of the strength of nation of the quote, better nation. And we saw that with just the idea of one was better be better than other races, whether for the Nazi Germany

00:57:06--> 00:57:09

how they took the whole world into ruins.

00:57:11--> 00:57:15

it can go like that. Stock market can go down, and it did no time. Right? houses cams or cars can crash

00:58:01--> 00:58:24

taala safety, but you can be arrogant of anything. That's why in sweat and tears, and I believe we started the seal on Friday.

00:58:25--> 00:59:01

his neighbor said Lola is the hunted, Masha Allah La quwata illa de la. As you go into your own Rossi own goddess you just just say Masha Allah, it is the will of Allah. Allah gave you that love for what they love. Love is no strength except with a law. Remember that this is the essence of faith. Everything we have is from Allah and it goes back to Allah. That's why when the calamity hits we say in that Illa banana your audio is nothing to worry about. It sounds from Alan he went back to a law and that's it standard store.

00:59:07--> 00:59:14

Muslim now it is on the authority of that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said mama Casa de Catalina

01:00:20--> 01:00:38

in law, there is not one person, one human being that humbles himself or herself to Allah subhanaw taala except that all of our data would elevate them would increase their status. So people get time to feel more important by being arrogant or doing the opposite, exactly opposite the themselves.

01:00:40--> 01:00:47

And those who wants to be elevated humble themselves to Allah, humble themselves to the will less and less apparent what that

01:00:50--> 01:01:35

actually we ran out of time before I even started into the stories of the Sahaba that humbleness so inshallah we will have to continue in some other time.

And one time a man came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, and started trembling out of the Prophet Polonius. And they've had this havior this, this presence, and the man was shaken by the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the man the Prophet sallallaahu Selim said, human Allah, take it easy, my brother and a bloomer, I think, boys, Kenneth Cody, I am the son of a woman in

01:01:59--> 01:02:37

He was the best of them. But this is the humbleness of the Prophet and the Sahaba amaravati allow us to ride on the donkey and even walk, walk beside his servant when the servant was riding on a donkey and that's how he walked into Jerusalem. When he was conquering Jerusalem when he was given the keys of Jerusalem. He was the Walker and the servant was on on the donkey and he would ride on a donkey, not on the most beautiful horse. This is the humbleness of the Sahaba.
