smeraldi Allahu anhu used to love freeing slaves, slavery was still allowed in those days because it was very hard to free them, they became public property. So instead of Islam coming to free the slaves, it would have harmed them more. So instead it made a system where encourage people to free slaves, they can manage, they can, you know, do something they can free him to forgive their sins or they can free them for any other matter of matter. delana used to free a slave of his and go to the market, buy a slave and sell it every single Friday. He used to do that.
Tomorrow, the Allahu anhu one day, entered a room where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting, and he was dangling his feet at the well of Rama.
And I think it was a thread Ilana was standing at the door and the door knocked the promise of the law send them said Who is it? And they said it's a worker with a lock on we said Let him come in and tell him that he will be among the people of paradise. But what should happen? Zhanna so we entered and sat beside the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on his right. Then the door knocked again. They said who said Omar the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said let Omar come in and give him glad tidings that he will be in paradise. He came in and sat beside a worker or the lawn on his right. Then the door knock the third time and it was awesome man or the Aloha and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,
let us man enter and tell him he will also be in paradise. But after a calamity, a fitna befalls him, and Othman, went and sat opposite to three of them. Some of them that say this interprets how they're buried today. The second is buried here. Next to him is a worker and next to him is Omar, and Othman, was buried a little bit of a distance in Alba clear.
Us narrow the Allahu anhu was more than shy. Now, when the Prophet was sitting at the Well, I'll tell you something here, I should have done it says he will he had his pants were rolled up, and you can see a little bit of the whiteness above his knees.
So his thighs,
which I think, from what I read from the scholars that it's not Haram, if a little bit of your thigh is showing, based on this Sahih Hadith, a little bit of the whiteness of the thigh was showing he didn't cover it when a worker walked in when Omar walked in, and when his aid was there, but when Osama Delano walked in, he covered it, he he rolled his pants down.
And afterwards I should have asked him, Why did you roll your pants down when delana entered? And he said to her, let me Rosalind this document on Malaika shall not be shy of a man whom the angel is a child. And he said, I just feared, I thought maybe if a man comes in, he'll look at me and I've got a little bit my legs showing and he's so shy that he probably wouldn't ask me anything anymore because he'll be looking away. You know, just being shy. So I want him to ask for what he wants. That's his personality.
alone. He was so shy that it was said that when he wanted to take a shower, bathe himself he has to wear a suit where he's the cover himself.
You don't have to, but that's what he did. Because he's to be so embarrassed and shy in front of the last panel.
That gives us a lesson about when we're alone in our bedroom. And what do we do in our time when allies watching?
Got a fear of loss partner with Ireland.
Sorry, I made a joke out of it. But I'm just I'm just trying to sort of not make you feel like I'm judging you. That's all but you got a fear of loss pinata Island secret and in open.
meadow, the low one who finished the Quran in one whole night once and once the hobby said, You didn't pray to it because you know, he said I was praying the winter. In one winter all night he finished the entire Quran.
tomorrow the Allahu anhu.
There was a hunger famine in Albuquerque last time. And there was a coffin of a cavalry which he bought, like 100 camels. And the people came up to him the business tradesman, they said we'll give you 10% profit. Another one said I'll give you 20% profit. The other one said I'll give you 30% profit because I've been given more profit than that more profit than that. They got how much they said 10 times so 100% profit. They said none of us will do that. Who's Who can offer you those wealthy enough to give you that much profit or actually 1,000% profit. He said Allah, Allah gives for every donation every day. 10 times more of profit. I have sold it to Allah subhanho wa Taala and
it's all for the poor at the time of the line.
The time of the alarm. Did you know that there were so many conquests, Islam spread to a place called cause Armenia, for us and Cyprus was opened in his time, Azerbaijan, most of Africa, and he ruled for about 12 years, the longest running halifa of the form. So there was so much success in his time, so much innovation, so much technology.
There's so much to say about the long run. But I'll just say a few more things that we can gather from every time you pass a grave. He would cry immensely. And they still ask him, what do you what do you cry when you when you pass the the graveyard so much? Meaning, you know, and he said, well, because I heard the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, say,
the grave is the introduction to your hereafter. And if it is good, then what comes after is going to be better. And if it is bad, what's going to come after is going to be even worse. So I cry about the meeting in the grave before I cry about hellfire.
And he needs to say, on the day of judgment, if I'm able to meet our last panel with the island
with nothing for me, and nothing against me, and I don't know where I'm going to end up heaven or hell, paradise or Hellfire, I'd rather be turned into dust. And it's okay to think that way.
That means that he always had a law in his heart. Now, I want you to think about this statement that is saying, we're talking about a wealthy, wealthy or super wealthy person, super wealthy person.
And he's saying that stuff. So you wonder what actually kept him humble, modesty, empathy, thinking about others, and his connection to Allah subhana wa Tada.
Allah said, levena
be him ye Roma.
Which means and those who are always
the punishment of Allah.
Verily, the punishment of your Lord,
you can never be secure from now it sounds negative.
But it's actually positive. It's telling us that when we lose our way, remember, Allah has a punishment, it makes you come back. And when you go on the right path, you remember that Allah is our hammer. rahimian is the Most Merciful, the most, the giver of mercy, the most generous, so we live a life between hope and fear. That's the best way to live. Don't be too sure that you're the best and you go straight to Jenna. And don't be too scared, that you're not going to go to jail be somewhere in between, somewhere in between. and this is how, when you see an option opportunity to do something good. Remember, gender, remember loves mystery, remember the rewards and rush to it.
And it makes you so happy. And when you see an opportunity to do something bad. Remember last pantallas punishment, and that'll save you in shed a lot. So it's good for you. It's good for us to have hope and fear at the same time. Don't be too extreme to the point you become so paranoid and upset, you know, obsessed with issues of Hellfire and punishment. Allah is not an angry God. And also don't be so sure that you're going to go to heaven and gender no matter what I knew this man who never prayed. So I tried to sort of advise him and he said, I don't need to pray. I asked him why he goes because Allah says, you know, you pray so you can be a good person. I'm a good person.
He drank alcohol, and he's a good person, you know, lift his wife or another woman in her arm is a good person. You know, his kids are just all over the place boyfriends and one of them's a sodomized, and
a knife I should have said that.
But one of them is you know, off the rails and so panela and he says I'm praying to Allah, I'm a good person.
If you're a good person,
then you connect yourself with Allah subhanho wa Taala because there's no one good or Buddha than a lost pinata. There's no one better than Allah. There's no more hate and more than Allah subhanaw taala so if you're a good person, you'll naturally attach yourself to a law.
My brothers and sisters in Islam,
or semana de Allahu anhu has a sad end. In the last two years, obviously, never.
There was a big fitna that happened between the Muslims. And I want you to listen carefully to this. This is the idea of extremism. You know, when people become extreme in the religion, they become fanatic. There is such a thing. Sometimes people become so fanatic and become so obsessed with the little things of the religion that they'll make.
feed on someone so easily. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, if a Muslim makes the creed on another Muslim one of them is and the other one isn't. So you better be careful. And if someone says another Muslim is a hypocrite, one of them is the other one isn't. So you better be careful. If one curses another Muslim like Lana, one of them is and one of them isn't
to make Kufa on someone.
So the Muslims became like that, and the people that made them become like that were actually hypocrites. And it was a Jewish man. I believe nobody was ever who he started this fitna, he started making these rumors about a man of the low iron hall that is trying to steal the wealth of the government and was giving it to his relatives and cousins. He he was doing all these mistakes, is you know, he wants power he wants. And some people they want to power themselves. Some people that just got to their head where they just didn't want the rule of Islam, they wanted to keep changing things. And some of them they took off Matta delana, for advantage that took his softness and his
leniency for advantage. So they started making stuff about him. And you know, some stupid stuff. One man came in and said, of man, I've got three questions for you. He said what? He said, Did you go to the Battle of butter with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam? He said, No. He actually said it's hard to live and our best he said did a miracle meaning go to battle of butter. He said no. He said, Uh huh. Why did he run away from the Battle of boyhood? He said yes. He said was he there under the tree when they gave pledge of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam which Allah mentions in the Quran? He said no. And the man said, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. You know that extreme ideology.
He says Allahu Akbar, as if he, you know, he proved something that would make a lot pleased with him. And I believe and I visited, can you hear me let me explain to you something. He didn't attend better because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ordered him to look after his wife Rokia. And when the Prophet finished from that he gave some of the spoils of war to us metal, the law No, and he considered in part of it. So that's one as for him walking away from awkward when he thought that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam died, what Allah subhanaw taala sent down the verse where he says, Look at our fellow Hong Kong, Allah has forgiven all those who walked away. So Allah forgave him.
And as for the Pledge of Allegiance, well, the Pledge of Allegiance was done because of him. He was trapped inside of Mecca long story. And the problem with the companions cried for him. They said, you know, he's probably killed. So come under the tree and let's make a pledge of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they all put their hands together, and it was worth none of the llanos hand that was missing. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, and this is my hand, the second hand, which represents us Nando de la Juan, that's your answer night, basically.
But it never stopped, the fitna grew. Do you know what they did him? Not one of the companions took part. But the companions they said including Alia de la, one of the loudness obeyed is the beta, the lion who there was also all the other companions who came in and they said, Let us fight them. With Nana Delano said, No, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me that if I were I was going to make me wear a shirt, do not take it off, which is the LFO. Number two, he told me to be patient. So I'm going to be patient. Number three, I do not want to die in my reign, and while I'm the halifa. And because of me, a single drop of blood has been shed from any Muslim.
He gave His life so that Muslims don't kill each other.
do understand what that means.
Even though he knew there were hypocrites, there was fitna there were extremists and all of that. He'd rather his life go, then the Muslims killing each other.
They blasted into his house while he was reading the Quran. And his wife was standing there. He was like 80 years old, is reading the Quran. You know why? And he was fasting. Because the night before he saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of work and Omar and his dreams. And they said fast because tomorrow night, you're gonna break your fast with us. So we sat there reading the Quran, one of the
Muslim men who was weak, hypocritical. He walks in
and he cuts the finger of his wife off because she put her hand out. And then he stabbed us merrily Allahu anhu, nine steps. And he said three of them are for a law and the rest of them will because something that I held resented inside of me, which really means he only did it for himself.
And the blood the first drop of blood that fell from Athena Donna's body was on an area in the Quran which says, For say, a FIFA home a law, a law will save you from them.
But the sisters in Islam have not or their loved one who is a very unique element.
Very unique lessons to be taken away from there. And I'll leave that to you because my time is up. I thank you for listening to Zircon low hate. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
