smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala early he was happy he may or praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all those who follow his Sunnah who follow His guidance, who follow his creed and methodology until the last day, respected brothers and sisters in Islam ladies and gentlemen Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:00:36--> 00:01:22

Today inshallah hota Allah, we are going to be exploring another chapter from amongst the chapters of Rio de Sala hain by emammal no we have a Hema hula who Thailand remember now we are Hema hula hula Allah has entitled this chapter or this bed Baboo fog loser defeat dounia One has to Allah at Akali minha Wofford motherfucker. And the translation is basically the excellence of leading an ascetic life, an ascetic life, and the virtues of a simple life of having a simple life. Now, the topic really is about zoo, zoo,

00:01:24--> 00:01:33

zoo, and the word zoo is translated as asceticism, asceticism, or being Ascetic.

00:01:34--> 00:02:35

what that translates to, it's referring to those people who were ascetic meaning those who are, who have no real desire for this dunya. But the main concern and objective is the Hereafter is the alpha. And they devote most most of their attention and focus on an alpha on the hereafter. So it is also about ridding yourself getting rid of greed, getting rid of greed, when it comes to the dunya and not paying too much attention to the dunya to this world. And, you know, as some scholars have said, this dunya dunya, Danny, Danny, it's very low, it's worthless, and we get to see some Hadith which which illustrate and exemplify the fact that this dunya really is worth this, especially in

00:02:35--> 00:02:58

the sight of Allah azza wa jal, and from amongst others, you often hear the scholars or mam's reciting Allahu Mallard that JD dunia at Kabbalah hamina our law do not make this dunya this world of Kabbalah the greatest of our concerns,

00:02:59--> 00:03:51

you know, and we're going to see some Hadith which showed that we are on this dunya as travelers or as strangers, okay, on this dunya that we're just passing by, that this life is a very transitory, transitory life. Now, in saying all of this, it doesn't mean that I Zed, which is the name of a practitioner of Zoo hood, one who practices Zoo hood, we call Him as their head, their head. And it's not about falling short of our obligations in life, we have obligations, we have duties to those who are around us, we have responsibilities with regards to our work or towards those that are around us, just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said kulu Kumara in wakulla, comas

00:03:51--> 00:04:08

Odin Angela, Yeti, that all of you are shepherds and all of you are responsible for those under your care. So we all have a risk a duty of care or accountability and responsibility put on us. So part of being a

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

part of being from amongst those who had which is the plural of Zed is

00:04:16--> 00:04:56

to have canal canal, contentment, or to have to be satisfied with what Allah azza wa jal has decreed for you having canal so this is what we'll be focusing on inshallah hota eyelet and mmm now we include a number of areas and lots of Hadeeth and I'll just handpick some of them for you from this chapter inshallah hota Island. Now one of the areas that he mentions is from Surah Al Hadid in the 18th chapter of the Quran, total Hadid verses 45 and 46 a beautiful example that Allah azza wa jal gives olanzapine and what it says

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

and put forward to them the example of the

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

life of this world, it is like the water or the rain, which we send down from the sky. And the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and becomes fresh and green.

00:05:14--> 00:05:28

But later, it becomes dry, it becomes dry and broken pieces, which the winds scatter and Allah is able to do everything.

00:05:29--> 00:06:13

wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world. But the good righteous deeds that last are better with your rub for rewards and better and respect in respect of hope. So Allah subhanaw taala is giving us a very beautiful analogy here, whereby you have this you know, rain, and then this in you know, vegetation that happened as a result of this rain, but then what happens it all dries up, and then it all basically becomes broken pieces and the wind just scatters it. This is the example okay of of dystonia, especially when we look at what is to come after it. Another area that mmm and now we have a Hema hula hula hula included

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

is

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

the words of Allah azza wa jal that we find

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

that we know Allah subhanho wa Taala has said.

00:06:27--> 00:06:57

He says yeah, yohannes Yeah, you Hannah's in what are the law Huck feller who run Nakul hyah to dounia y la hora na combi la Haru Allah azza wa jal says oh mankind you notice how the address here is to all of mankind and not Yeah, you have Lavina Amano Salas not addressing just Muslims here and believers but he's talking to all of mankind and that's part of the

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

what we see in the Quran. So yeah yohannes mankind or mankind, verily the promise of Allah is true.

00:07:09--> 00:07:15

So let not this present not so let not this present life deceive you.

00:07:16--> 00:07:34

Okay Jenna is true jahannam is true. Punishment in the Hereafter is true. All of this is a reality. So again verily the promise of Allah is true so let not this prison life deceive you and that not the chief deceiver meaning shavon

00:07:35--> 00:07:48

deceive you about Allah Don't be deceived. Many people who doing many people are deceived thinking that you know all they work for is the doing so their biggest concern is the dunya

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

adonia to denier so

00:07:53--> 00:08:17

this is another area that mmm no we included now from amongst the Hadith that that mmm no we included about this chapter of Zoo hood of a zoo hood is the hadith of amber Ivanov and I'm sorry about their loved one who Alba and it's fairly Sahara Muslim. And basically here it's a hadith whereby the prophet SAW Selim he prophesizes what he's fees

00:08:18--> 00:08:26

and one of the profits are low it was said lamps fees, as we read in this hadith is not that we will be poor people.

00:08:27--> 00:08:58

But the opposite is true. The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam he sent obey the Abner Java for the Allahu anhu to behind to behind to collect jizya jizya is the like a tax that is collected from non Muslims who are under the care of Muslims living in a Muslim country. So there is a tax that is payable for that for that care in return jizya. So who returned from Bahrain,

00:08:59--> 00:09:02

Abu Zubaydah Abu Dhabi returned from Bahrain

00:09:04--> 00:09:19

and he returned with this wealth. The answer the people of Medina, got news of it and joined with the prophet SAW Selim in the future pray. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concluded the Salah. They stood in his way.

00:09:21--> 00:09:54

When he saw them, he smiled. And he said, I think you have heard about the arrival of Abu Zubaydah with something from behind. He knows that he has some wealth with him that is bought back to Medina. They said yes, and messenger of Allah. And so the prophets for a long while he was selling them said rejoice and hope for that which will please you while law he says in the can be happy, but I'm going to tell you something more will lie he by Allah.

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

It is not poverty that I feel for you.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

But I feel that

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

This world will be opened up with its world for you as it was opened up to those before you.

00:10:07--> 00:10:42

And you will compete against one another over it as they did and eventually it will ruin you, as it ruined them competing over the dunya that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam feels. So, and hamdulillah we learn from this Hadith, that from a religious angle, that poverty, poverty of an individual or nation is not as dangerous as its affluence.

00:10:43--> 00:10:52

So, what is more dangerous is that when we are living in a fluent, you know, when we will ask that's when it becomes dangerous.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

So the problem is that does not fear poverty.

00:10:57--> 00:11:18

And the excess of wealth, we find has made it the majority of the rich people extremely careless about their religious obligations. We find that there are many Muslims for example, who are very wealthy and they will, has pre occupied them from the command and the obligations

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

towards Allah azza wa jal.

00:11:21--> 00:12:10

This is Allah azza wa jal, he says in the Quran, I'll have como Taka Thor had tamale macabre and have Kuma Taka for Lahore, who you are preoccupied by this castle by this accumulation and hoarding of wealth has been macabre until you visit the graves because when you were in the grave, you're just a visitor, you're not going to be in the state of the grave forever. When you when a person is in the gravies, there are in this in the in the in the state of Alberta. He's only there for a limited time. That's why had zero to Max's era. It's not an eternal abode, because there is an abode in the here of the hereafter. So again, a warning from the Prophet salallahu it he was sending

00:12:11--> 00:12:23

another additional concern for his own man from the process from the prophet SAW Selim. We read in the following hadith of Abu Sayyaf niladri or the loved one who Allah and we find it in Bukhari and Muslim.

00:12:24--> 00:12:42

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sat on the member on the pulpit and we sat around him. That is the Sahaba and he said what I'm what I am concerned most is the flourish mint and the beauty of this world will be available to you.

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

And

00:12:47--> 00:13:01

also the process lm shows us in this next Hades, how alluring This world is, and a warning. And the hadith of again, Abu sorry, the new portrayal of the Allahu anhu and this time it's found in Sahara Muslim.

00:13:02--> 00:13:12

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the world is sweet and green. The world is sweet and green, meaning it's very alluring.

00:13:14--> 00:13:34

And verily, Allah is making you to succeed each other generations after generations in it in order to see how you act. He's testing us. So be aware of this world and be aware of women if adequate dunia what happened Nisa?

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

inshallah will elaborate more on this, on this on the on the part of a taco fitna 27.

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

And as for the loved one who next Hadees reported, as we read in Sahara Bukhari and Muslim,

00:13:51--> 00:13:55

a hadith about what is really the real life.

00:13:56--> 00:14:04

Now, in this is a very, this is a Hadeeth. Really, I think that a person should always have in front of the eyesight,

00:14:05--> 00:14:17

or bring to the conscious to the end and bring to their conscious from their subconscious every time they are, you know, bewildered or overtaken

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

by some worldly imagery.

00:14:22--> 00:14:32

And the prophet SAW Selim, he said, Allah whom Allah I shall, I shall ask Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah efra

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

which means our law there is no true life, but the life of the hereafter. So whenever you see something so beautiful and then amazes you and you caught up with it, remember that this is just temporary, that it will, it's just a fad. It's something that is going to come to pass, something that will deteriorate something that will die, something that you will get over it. So really

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

The real life is the afterlife, because that is eternal. That is the perfect life.

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

And so

00:15:12--> 00:15:20

there's a little bit of a history behind these, these words of the prophet SAW Selim. And it pretty much related to do two different occasions.

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

The first one is in relation to a husband's will conduct the Battle of the trench.

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

When the Muslims were engaging in digging up the trench around Medina, in prepared in preparation to the enemy, that was that was coming. And that was a very sort of, you know, arduous and very,

00:15:44--> 00:16:25

it was it required a lot of a lot of effort and a lot of energy, a lot of sacrifice, from the Sahaba of their loved one whom, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these words with the intention to impress upon them the need for supper for patients and to boost their morale. So yes, you go through this hardship, but the real life destroy remember, is the hereafter. So when you set yourself a goal, when you set yourself the goal of an alpha, then these things become easier. You work harder, you make the sacrifices and you put in the hard yards.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

Allah mela Ayesha in I shall answer a beautiful day that we need to always remind ourselves about.

00:16:36--> 00:16:54

So, again, we have to remember that this is a transitory This is a temporary life, and that the real life is the ever lasting life. The other incident is during hedger to adapt. During the farewell pilgrimage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:55--> 00:17:25

The prophet SAW Selim he saw around him a large crowd of Muslims, lots of Muslims, you know, when you sometimes see these numbers, you know, when you see numbers, you begin to you know, have maybe this pride and you know, that that might, you know, overcome you. So when he saw he saw this, the process happening he warned them against becoming proud and overjoyed by their strength and by the power.

00:17:26--> 00:17:37

And so the real life was an Acura and that they should they should do do their utmost to reform the afro. There's some words of a poet who once said,

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

lair, Dara, Lil Murray, bad al Moti Neha

00:17:45--> 00:18:02

Illa de la multiband Neha outwards to this effect. He said, as the real home for a person of the, the real home of the Hereafter is the home that you build in this dunya, you build your answer in this dunya.

00:18:03--> 00:18:11

So if you build it with goodness, in Banner, happy hiring, if you build it with righteous deeds, good deeds,

00:18:12--> 00:19:03

then his building is going to be amazing, you're going to have a very beautiful building in the Acura. And the more you work in you, the more sacrifice you make in this dunya towards that home than your home in the in the Hereafter is going to be just remarkable. Outstanding, right? And, and, and then he goes on, he says, but if you build it, if you build your alpha with sharp with evil faqad haba and he has the, the the builder is destroyed. So you won't even have a building, you yourself will be destroyed. So we need it's about priorities and getting our priorities right. I mean, again, let's think about let's do that. Let's do the math here. You know, the prophet SAW

00:19:03--> 00:19:12

Selim said 60 and 70 years old is the average lifespan, and some, and some will surpass this, let's say 100.

00:19:14--> 00:19:36

And now so let's say a person lives to 100 years. So there's 100 years of dunya. And then you have eternity of ephemera? Which one would you put more effort into? Would you put more effort into the 100 years? Or would you put more effort into something which is perpetual, something which is everlasting?

00:19:37--> 00:19:42

You know, the wise person is the one who would be working towards that.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

And really, the foolish person is the one who's going to put all his effort into this doing here, which is going to come to pass sooner or later. So let us always remember this, this, this sort of maths as well. inshallah hota island.

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

The next Hadees is the hadith of Anna's for the loved one who were Alba. And we find it in Bukhari and Muslim and here the prophet SAW Selim

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

is

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

reminding us and telling us that what happens when you die.

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

The prophet SAW Selim, he said yet power meter selasa

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

that three things follow a dead person.

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

Upon your death, three things will follow you.

00:20:29--> 00:20:45

Hulu, Hulu, Hulu, his family, his wealth and his actions for your juro if nan waikawa head, two things remain behind and one thing stays with the dead person.

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

One thing stays with him.

00:20:49--> 00:20:58

Your Giroux Hello, Who? Who? He's a Haley's family and his wealth remained behind they're not going to enter the grave with you.

00:20:59--> 00:21:08

Why up Emmylou and what remains is your actions. What remains in the grave are your actions.

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

So

00:21:11--> 00:21:20

that is something that we need to always remember you're not going to take anything away to the grave except for your armel your actions, your good deeds, and your bad deeds that come with you.

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

So

00:21:24--> 00:21:35

that grave will either be a garden from amongst the gardens of genda for you or repeat from amongst the pits of the Hellfire Will he ever be lenise Rola has Salah Mata when I feel

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

this next howdy

00:21:39--> 00:21:50

is an another very beautiful reminder of how we should not be any overcome by this dunya and overwhelmed by this dunya and that we need to get our priorities right.

00:21:53--> 00:22:05

It's the Hadith, whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us about two people who will be dipped on the Day of Judgment. One of them will be dipped in gender, and another one will be dipped in the hellfire.

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

Just the dip.

00:22:09--> 00:22:14

And as even Malika Allahu wa Padilla one who are the as we find this Muslim

00:22:16--> 00:22:34

says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said among the inmates of Hill, a person who had lived the most luxurious life in this world will be brought up on the Day of Resurrection and dipped in the fire and will be asked, oh, son of Adam, did you ever experience any comfort?

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

So he had a very luxurious life.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

And, however,

00:22:45--> 00:22:56

he was a person who was not fulfilling the commands of Allah azza wa jal, and he's made to be dipped in the fire. Oh, son of Adam. Did you ever experience?

00:22:57--> 00:23:07

Sir, did you ever express any conflict? Did you happen to get any luxury? He replied by Allah? No, my Rob, and then one of the people of gender who had experienced extreme misery

00:23:08--> 00:23:29

in the life of this world will be dipped in gender. Then he will be asked, oh, son of Adam, did you ever experience any misery? Did you ever encounter difficulty? And he will say By Allah, no, my Arab I need that experience misery, Misery, no pass through hardship.

00:23:31--> 00:24:01

So so panelo one dip in the Hellfire will make make you forget every, every piece of luxury and beautiful moment that you ever had in your life, just one diplomat, you forget all of your riches, all of your wealth, all that you possessed, all of your children, all of your family will make you forget everything. And then another person who was had a such a miserable, miserable life, he straightaway forgets all of that misery by one dip engine.

00:24:02--> 00:24:16

One dip, that's just a dip. Imagine being in it forever. Imagine being in it, you know, for the first hour, low acmella xojo make me and make you from amongst the people of gender. I mean,

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

so

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

so was just a glimpse, just a glimpse in gender, a glimpse of the Hellfire, it make you forget everything.

00:24:28--> 00:24:33

And then this next Hadeeth we have a comparison of this world to the next.

00:24:34--> 00:24:51

And this hadith is found inside Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said this world, meaning its pleasures and duration in comparison with the Hereafter, is similar to the amount of water one gets when he puts his finger in the sea.

00:24:52--> 00:24:55

Let him then see what it returns.

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

Let him then see what it returns.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

If you put your finger in the ocean,

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

right, you think about how vast The ocean is.

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

And then you take it out how much water is going to remain on your finger?

00:25:11--> 00:25:30

Well, this amount of water these droplets that are on your finger is how much Yanni any the ocean represents the gender, the ocean represents gender. And this dunya is like just drops from the gender these droplets.

00:25:31--> 00:25:49

So can you imagine how much Allah azza wa jal is offering us in terms of reward and virtue in general. And again, we're still going to be competing over this dunya fighting each other over and not prioritizing and making it our biggest concern.

00:25:50--> 00:26:04

Especially when we hear this hadith that is fantasy a Muslim. So this hadith My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it shows us the value of the hereafter and its blessings compared to this transitory, worldly life.

00:26:06--> 00:26:13

In this next Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, reminds us of this world,

00:26:14--> 00:26:23

of this of the futility of this world, through another comparison have how few Tao this will these

00:26:24--> 00:26:30

in the hadith of Jabir ibn Abdullah, Ravi Allahu anhu that we read in Sahih Muslim,

00:26:32--> 00:26:38

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was passing through the bazaar, or the marketplace,

00:26:40--> 00:26:48

with his Sahaba, with his companions, on both his sides, when he saw a dead skinny land.

00:26:49--> 00:27:08

He sees what a dead skinny lamb and he held it, he held it ease and said, Who of you would like to have it for a dyrham? Would any of you like to have this dead skinny lamb for $1? for a buck? In, as we say, in Australia?

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

So

00:27:12--> 00:27:22

they replied, we do not like to get it for nothing, and what shall we do with it? And we wouldn't even want to have it for free. What are we going to do with it? Of what uses it?

00:27:23--> 00:28:11

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked, Would you like to have it for nothing? I replied, had it been alive? It would have been defective because it's skinny. But when did it have no use? So not, not even if it was alive, dead or alive? We didn't, we wouldn't want it when I benefit from it. Now comes the moral of the Hadith and why this hadith is found in this chapter. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, for our law, he, again an oath by Allah, for Allah, He, like dunya one, voila, he mean hatha alaikum. He said, By Allah truly the world or this worldly life is more worthless,

00:28:12--> 00:28:27

or is worthless to Allah, then this is to you, meaning this dead lamp, it's worth nothing to allies, though a gel, this dunya This world is worth nothing.

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

Look at how much we can enjoy it and we have, you know,

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

there's so much we can do in it and achieve in it.

00:28:37--> 00:28:46

So this hadith again, shows us the futility of this world for which one struggles so madly throughout life about towards

00:28:47--> 00:29:15

and, and the prophet SAW Selim, we learn from this Hadith, how he would always seize opportunities. So if you see something that reminds you of the Acura or remind you with an Islamic notion, and you have a child with you, or you have some friends with you, remind them, remind them or make that make those analogies just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we would do this as part of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:29:17--> 00:29:38

Now also, there is a hadith that shows us which is evident how the prophet SAW Selim himself was not attached to material wealth to material gains. In this next Hadith that we find in Bukhari and Muslim as the hadith of Abu huraira, Allahu Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If I had gold,

00:29:39--> 00:29:56

equal to the mountain of offered in weight, it would not please me to pass, it would not please me to pass three nights, and I have a thing of it left with me except what I retained for repayment of a debt.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

So the prophet SAW Selim would hate

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would hate to have

00:30:06--> 00:30:12

any wealth with him no matter even if it was a massive amount of wolf mountain mountain above it is a massive mountain.

00:30:13--> 00:30:20

He would hate to have any part of it on him except if it was something to repay back or pay back his debts.

00:30:22--> 00:30:38

So, again, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he lived, a very simple life himself, wasn't taken by the dunya he could have been, he could have been lived the life of a king. I mean, he was a prophet of Allah azza wa jal.

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

But he chose a simple life.

00:30:43--> 00:30:52

This next Hadith also teaches us brothers and sisters in Islam, to look at those that are in a more

00:30:53--> 00:31:03

who have less in terms in terms of worldly goods, and not be looking at and be envious of those who have moved.

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:31:07--> 00:31:13

said, as we read in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim through the words of Abu huraira, the Allahu Allah,

00:31:14--> 00:31:24

look at those who are inferior to you, on guru Ella men who is philomene kumala tonzura element who fo cocoon.

00:31:25--> 00:31:25

For who

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

does that who

00:31:30--> 00:31:37

say, he said, Look at those who are inferior to you, and you're not looking at those who are superior to you.

00:31:38--> 00:31:43

For this will keep you from belittling Allah's favor towards you.

00:31:45--> 00:31:52

So, by looking at the worldly goods and riches of others, a person gradually becomes what he becomes and thankful

00:31:53--> 00:32:13

for the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has bestowed upon him. This becomes a disease. So when you start to focus on what other people have, and what, in comparison to what you have, you start to become unfaithful you don't, you don't show your gratitude towards Eliza well, because you always want what other people have, it's a disease.

00:32:15--> 00:32:21

So I love the power. So the prophet SAW Selim has given us a remedy, to remedy this disease.

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

And which is basically this hadith.

00:32:26--> 00:32:51

Look at those who are in less in lesser, or situations, or a status that are below you, not those who are in a better situations. And perhaps, if you had the riches and the wealth of somebody else, that would be your means, to what to derailing you from having the proper Amen.

00:32:52--> 00:32:59

So always be content, and say, and hamdulillah and hamdulillah.

00:33:00--> 00:33:15

Just remember that whatever you're going to get, you will get it in this life, you won't get $1 more or $1 less or a cent or a penny, or a pound, whichever currency you are using, in whichever part of the world you are in, or wring it or whatever it is,

00:33:16--> 00:33:32

or yellow, you can probably go on. So you only don't you're not going to get one more or one less. And remember that your risk is from Allah azza wa jal, your sustenance is with allies origin. Allah azza wa jal says, Well, this summer it is Coco mama to

00:33:33--> 00:33:39

your risk has already been ordained for you and what you have been promised.

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

So again,

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

you know, being content with what you have.

00:33:47--> 00:34:04

So, from a religious angle, however, as we look at those who are better than you, from a from a dunya perspective, look at those who are less fortunate than you, but from a religious angle, look at those who are better than you in terms of their

00:34:05--> 00:34:18

good deeds and virtues and upright character and manners. Yes, we will look at those people. We will look towards those people from a religious perspective. Insha Allah

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

the next

00:34:22--> 00:34:31

the next, the next Hadith is a duel against the one who prefers worldly life or worldly wealth of Allah commands.

00:34:32--> 00:34:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:34:35--> 00:34:46

He said as we read it through the words of Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allahu wa he said, Teresa dinner, Teresa dinner

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

with Dr. Jaime Walcott, welcome. Welcome to 31 camisa. In order to do we're in

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

the process, Adam said, may he be miserable

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

May he be miserable to

00:35:04--> 00:35:10

the worshipper of the dinar and Dirham, those who worship dollars and cents

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

pounds and pennies.

00:35:14--> 00:35:30

Those who worship you might be asking how do you worship by putting all of your time and all of your energy and all of your effort towards earning wealth at the expense of your obligations and commitment towards Allah azza wa jal

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

Teres Teresa, may he be miserable.

00:35:38--> 00:36:10

So if a person is finding himself miserable in life, then he needs to check why he has wrecked himself. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Why now, I saw the Camino de Botton fabby, maca Sabbath a de como Anca T. And whatever of misfortune befalls you is due to what your own hands have earned. And yet he pardons much sooner a person needs to check himself, chip has made him reached this level, what why am I feeling this way?

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

So, another

00:36:16--> 00:36:28

and then the professor said when he said, and the worshipper of the striped silk cloak, if he is given anything, he is satisfied, but if not, he is unsatisfied and grateful.

00:36:31--> 00:36:39

So again, when we are grateful to Allah azza wa jal, and we thank him, and we show our thanks through our words and through our actions.

00:36:41--> 00:37:01

And through our connection with Allah azza wa jal, Allah gives us more. Allah says, while in shachar, azita naku. If you thank me, I will give you increased, I will give you more when it occurred to me as he then so those who are after extra, then do more deeds.

00:37:02--> 00:37:08

The more you do, the more you receive, the more you give, the more you'll receive. It's a universal principle.

00:37:09--> 00:37:19

When you put more time into something you'll make, you'll have more any returns, the more to make money, you spend money. And that's the universal principle.

00:37:21--> 00:37:26

Now, here's Nick in this next Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:37:28--> 00:37:31

we learn about the people of the suffer a how to suffer.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

And

00:37:36--> 00:37:49

this hadith is originally found in mojari. And the people have suffered, they were the people, the Sahaba, who were very, very poor. There was Sahaba, who were very poor.

00:37:50--> 00:37:56

And they used to basically resort or stay at the sofa. And the sofa

00:37:58--> 00:38:12

is a shady place at the back of the prophets Masjid in El Medina, so these people used to basically stay in this area that was dedicated to them, if they're called Lucifer,

00:38:13--> 00:38:21

and this Hadith, Abu huraira says I so 70 of the people have to suffer, and none of them had a cloak

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

like an outer garment.

00:38:25--> 00:38:50

They had either a lower garment or a blanket, which they suspended from the Knicks, some, in other words, cloaks reached half way down to the legs and some to the ankles, and the men would manage to keep it in his hand to avoid exposing his private parts. This was the state of some of the Sahaba of their loved one whom

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

it is another Hadith

00:38:55--> 00:39:04

that we find in mahadi, the hadith of Abu whatever the Allahu anhu or the prophet SAW Selim, he compares this world to a prison.

00:39:06--> 00:39:10

At the same time, he compares it to agenda to a paradise.

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

He says

00:39:14--> 00:39:17

the world is the believers prison

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

and the infidels, Jen,

00:39:22--> 00:39:27

he said adonia signal meanie with genital care fear

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

signal Minh, because the believer he sees himself as being imprisoned from what from the eternity and the delights and the bliss that awaits him in the afra in the afterlife. So we're imprisoned from from being there. That's where we want to be just like a prisoner. He wants to be out in the real world. He's imprisoned from the real world of enjoying, you know what people enjoy in life. But as for the cafe,

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

With a disbeliever to this gentleman, let's see because to him after this

00:40:05--> 00:40:11

is his death after this that says there is there is nothing to come after this.

00:40:13--> 00:40:18

So, another analogy that was given by the prophets of Allah while he was settling.

00:40:20--> 00:40:30

And yet in this next Hadith, the process lm reminds us to be strangers, or to be travelers in this dunya and the hadith of Abdullah ibn Ahmed Abdullah Juan who Allah

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

the prophet SAW Selim, he says, took hold of my shoulder and said be in this world like a stranger or a wayfarer, a traveler

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

and Eben Amato, the loved one who used to say, this has been our man, not the prophet SAW Selim.

00:40:47--> 00:40:52

When you survive till the evening, do not expect to live until the morning.

00:40:54--> 00:41:09

And when you survive until the morning, do not expect to live until the evening, do good deeds, when you are in good health before you fall sick, and do good deeds, as long as you are alive before death strikes.

00:41:10--> 00:41:17

Very straightforward, Heidi. And so we find that the greatest fault of mankind

00:41:18--> 00:41:24

of a person is he does not understand the status of this world, the status of this world

00:41:26--> 00:41:39

that's the biggest foot that we have to always come back and remind ourselves that this is a situation for us a prison in comparison to the hereafter.

00:41:40--> 00:41:41

And,

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

you know, not

00:41:44--> 00:41:52

occupying ourself with you know, amassing goods and riches, which will only last for a while, as we said for a maximum of 100 years.

00:41:55--> 00:41:59

And if one of the ways to gain the love of Allah azza wa jal, we learned about through this next Hadith

00:42:00--> 00:42:17

that we find in certain urban magic A man came to the prophet SAW Selim and said, O Messenger of Allah guide me to Section action, which if I do, Allah will love me and the people will also love me. He said a long while he was seldom said have no desire for this world and Allah will love you

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

to his head Finn dunya you him book Allah.

00:42:23--> 00:42:27

Allah is had fun dunya you hit McCullough

00:42:29--> 00:42:44

have no desire for this world and Allah will love you was hood female in the nursery, you hit brokenness. You have Becca, a nurse, he said, and have no desire for what people possess and the people will love you.

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

So you want to gain the love of Allah and the love of people, then don't give too much concern to material, material stuff.

00:42:57--> 00:43:23

And other halifa even when no Rahim Allah who Tyler included is the hadith of a normal woman by Sheila della one who we find his or her Muslim. He reported that Omar Abdullah one who spoke at length regarding the worldly prosperity that people had achieved and said, I saw that the messenger of the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam would pass his days in hunger and could not even

00:43:25--> 00:43:35

and could not even the only resort to degraded dates to fill his stomach. So during the time of processing, there was some really trying times and times of poverty.

00:43:39--> 00:43:40

Another Hudis

00:43:42--> 00:43:44

Yanni is the hadith

00:43:46--> 00:43:50

of amor ebenen Hadith which outlines what the prophet SAW Selim left behind upon his death.

00:43:52--> 00:44:09

When they met when he died, the Messenger of assassin Lem left neither a dinar nor a Durham, nor a male slave nor a female slave nor anything else except his white riding knew his weapons and his land, which he had given in charity to the wayfarers.

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

talks about

00:44:19--> 00:44:39

the value and the worth of this dunya and he said, in the hadith of Salah even Saturday a loved one who were there that we find the Sunnah Timothy he said low can academia tabular in the law? Hey, Jenna haba all that in Morocco, Catherine minha, Shabana,

00:44:40--> 00:44:57

he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that, if this world was worth the wing of a mosquito, the wing of a mosquito, he would not have given a drink of water to a cafe.

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

Now we know that the

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

So far the infidels, non non Muslims, they drink lots of water. Allah provides them with water with lots and lots of sustenance. Had this world been worth the wing of one mosquito to Allah azza wa jal? If it was worth he wouldn't have given them a drink of water.

00:45:24--> 00:45:27

That's how worth it is this dunya is

00:45:28--> 00:45:34

it's worth nothing. What is the Danny, the wing of a mosquito?

00:45:35--> 00:45:48

Has anyone ever given it any consideration or any thought? Has anyone even thought about the wing of a mosquito? You might think about the wing of a fly. You know, you might think about his own foot about the wing of a mosquito.

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

That's the dunya

00:45:52--> 00:45:55

it's worthless in the sight of Allah azza wa jal.

00:45:57--> 00:46:52

And in this next Hadith we learn about how this life is deprived of blessing, and it is cursed. There is no Baraka. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, in dunya meluna Mela rune Murphy ha Illa Victrola Walla Walla Who is the man who Amata Allina he sits on a long line he will say lamb verily This world is a cursed, and what it contains is a curse, except the remembrance of Allah and those who associate themselves with Allah, and a learned man and a learned person. So everything is devoid of Baraka blessing except for these things, except for the remembrance of Allah anything that includes your remembrance of Allah, Salah Hajj, cm, the anything that includes

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

remembrance of Allah is not cursed. And

00:46:59--> 00:47:05

the LM, which is the scholar, and those who associate themselves with them.

00:47:08--> 00:47:09

Oh, the toilet water element.

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

So,

00:47:12--> 00:47:25

this hadith does not mean that this world is totally condemned. But it means that such things of this world occurs which take away a person from Allah and make them kill us about their obedience towards Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

In this next Hadith, Abdullah ibn must roadog Allahu Allahu Allah says, as we find the Sinhala telemovie he said, Do not crave for property, less you should be absorbed in the desire of worldly life. So here what he means by property is you know, land and industry and agriculture

00:47:48--> 00:48:09

and business, that one should not be so engrossed, so engrossed in them to the extent that they become the sole purpose of one's life, and all one's efforts are exhausted, are exhausted, to acquire them, thus forgetting all about the acido to getting all about the hereafter.

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

And in another Hadith,

00:48:13--> 00:48:15

the hadith of God even

00:48:17--> 00:48:29

even Ayub rajala law into the process, lm said, verily there is a fitness for every nation, and the trial for my nation or my own may as well.

00:48:31--> 00:48:42

So fitna anything again, which is yummy, distracting a person from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:48:43--> 00:49:11

for amongst the Hadith also, we find that the prophet SAW Selim, he slipped on a straw mat, and got up with the marks left on it on his body. So even Masada their loved one who he said O Messenger of Allah, would you make us spread out a soft bedding for you? He replied, what have I to do with the world? I am like a rider who had sat under retrieve for its shade, then went away and lifted.

00:49:13--> 00:49:19

So he could have had a nice, you know, soft bed and bedding, but No, he didn't.

00:49:22--> 00:49:34

In another Hadith, we learned that the poor people, they enter the poor righteous people, they enter agenda 500 years earlier than others 500 years earlier.

00:49:36--> 00:50:00

It's the hadith of Abu huraira the Allahu Allahu Allah that we find is similar to Timothy. The prophet SAW Selim said the poor people or the poor will enter agenda 500 years before the rich Why? Because those people who are rich those people who have lots of wealth Okay, they have to be any accounted there'll be some

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

Counting with regards to their wealth. How did they gain their wealth? What did they do with their wealth? And what did they spend it? That is more questioning, hence the time, the time period.

00:50:15--> 00:50:17

The province had a long line he was lm.

00:50:18--> 00:50:32

He also said in this text haddish I looked into Jana, and so that most of its dwellers are the poor. And I looked, I looked into the Hellfire, and saw that most of its inmates were women.

00:50:33--> 00:50:45

So the professor said him, he observed the gender and he observed he has seen gender and he has seen the Hellfire on two occasions, when occasion is during the israa and marriage.

00:50:47--> 00:51:02

The the journey, the night journey where the process lm Yami was elevated through the seven heavens. And he saw Jenna and Johanna. And during another time when he was praying for Latin who saw the eclipse pray.

00:51:03--> 00:51:07

He actually saw he was showing gender. And he was showing the hellfire.

00:51:08--> 00:51:14

And a large majority of the Takara of the poor people are the ones who will go to gender.

00:51:16--> 00:51:51

And then the reason why women are the majority of inhabitants of the Hellfire is because as our other men have said, is because of the much of the cursing, because they curse Allah. And because they are ungrateful to their husbands. You clear in the last year. The professor said lamb, he mentioned that most of the women will be in the hellfire. Most of the people of the Hellfire will be women. A woman asked, Why are so Allah. He said you fit in you fit in a means to show in gratitude.

00:51:52--> 00:51:55

And then she said you fit in a villa? And he said no.

00:51:57--> 00:52:06

Do they disbelieve or unsure the ungratefulness and in gratitude towards Allies had no they're ungrateful to their husbands you could fit in there last year.

00:52:07--> 00:52:10

So it's very important for wives

00:52:11--> 00:52:15

to be grateful towards their husbands.

00:52:18--> 00:52:51

So, this is a warning from the Prophet sallallahu ala he was said, and so besides Allah azza wa jal, everything is with us. And this next Hadith, the hadith of Abu hora rajala, one who illustrates this and we find it in Bukhari and Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, the most truthful statement a poet has ever made, is the saying of lobbied lobbied said, Al kulu Shea in Holla Holla Who? Bow Phil.

00:52:52--> 00:52:57

He said everything besides a law is worthless.

00:52:58--> 00:53:00

Everything besides Allah is vain.

00:53:02--> 00:53:37

And so this was the last Hadeeth mmm number to him. Allahu Allah concluded this chapter with my last panel with Tyler bless us with beneficial knowledge, Mama azzawajal make us from monsters who had a Zahedan and said he don't. Those who live ascetic lives, those whose focus is all about the athleta and the hereafter, and allies and his promise of gender akula polyhedra was sort of law who was selling our car and abena Muhammad was Solomonic Rahmatullahi wa barakato
