Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali he was happy he etchmiadzin or praises you to Allah He made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, upon all those who follow His guidance, we follow his way until the last day, respected brothers and sisters in Islam. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Today inshallah huzzah Allah, another chapter from amongst the chapters of oily hain by emammal neverwet Allahu taala, Thailand and he has entitled this chapter Babel, farewell bah bah bah bah bah bah, he will have to generate halal meaning, that is the chapter of

00:00:50--> 00:00:57

modesty and courtesy towards the believers and lowering the wing of humility.

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

lowing lowering the wing, towards the believers. Now, the word here for for modesty is at the World War, after world war or World War Two tada means humility, and being humble, and being lenient, and being loving. It's all part of this word, having a toggle.

00:01:28--> 00:01:47

And then hamdulillah Islam, which has left no stone unturned, speaks about this concept. And this notion, and one of the manners of being an outstanding Muslim, being honored by Allah azza wa jal is the concept and the notion of a thought.

00:01:48--> 00:01:58

And a tomato one of the way, one of the best ways to try and understand something and if you're trying to teach something to somebody is teaching them the opposite of something

00:02:00--> 00:02:15

we will be They'll be here to show you get to know something by the opposite. So the opposite of a polka.is, having Kibriya having kibber having pride.

00:02:17--> 00:02:24

And this is something which is shunned by the deen of Islam. So it's when for example, the opposite of atharvaveda is when you

00:02:25--> 00:03:17

despise others, or you look down upon others, whether you look down upon them, because of a favor that Allah azza wa jal has given you, be it knowledge lm that you have, it might be that you have some special knowledge. So you see yourself better than others. And you despise others because of this knowledge. Or it could be because of your nest egg. It could be because of your lineage, you come from a noble lineage, or it could be because of your wealth, you're a wealthy person, you're a rich person. So you despise others because of your riches. Or it could be because of your leadership, your inara it could be that you are a person who has a high ranking status. So

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

this is goes against a tomato, this goes against being humble. And

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

I like the saying

00:03:29--> 00:03:50

that Muslims should be like the branch of a tree, the branch of a fruit bearing tree, every time it bears a piece of fruit, the branch leans towards the ground, leans towards the ground.

00:03:51--> 00:04:06

So every time a Muslim gains something that Allah azzawajal gives them, whether it be wealth, knowledge, lineage, whatever it might be, then the Muslim should humble themselves and become more humble

00:04:08--> 00:04:15

towards the people that are around him, and not see themselves as superior to them.

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

And so my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it is wedging, it is

00:04:22--> 00:04:47

obligatory, it is incumbent upon Muslims to lower their wing to lower their wing for the believers. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah in the Quran is for the Shara. Verse 215, which emammal now Rahim Allahu taala opens up this chapter with Allah Subhana Allah says was fifth Jenna Hakka Lim

00:04:50--> 00:04:55

was fifth Gen kelemen luminita Baraka mineral meaning there is

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

and be kind and humble.

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

Lower your wing, which means be kind and humble to the believers who follow you. So this is an instruction to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:14--> 00:05:25

So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was the best of creation, he was the best. There is nobody on the face of this earth,

00:05:26--> 00:06:03

past, present, or in the future, that could hold a loftier position, or status, or name, then that of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah azza wa jal chose him to be the seal of the prophets and messengers, and he is the first to enter gender. And yet he was the most humblest the most, you find him very humble. He's very lenient, he had humility. So he teaches us through His actions, and through his words,

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

about the importance of being humble towards believers.

00:06:09--> 00:06:25

So yet, despite him being the best of creation, we find him a very humble person. So panela whether it was with children, even when he was in Medina, a slave girl

00:06:26--> 00:07:00

took him by the hand or she told him to come along somewhere. And he went along with her. In other words, she wanted help in something or she wanted him to say something. And she's just a slave girl, that the society maybe would look at and say, she's has no status has no real weight in the community. But the prophet SAW Selim, he was very humble, and he would go along with her, and you know, or attend to her, whatever it is that she was after, or in pursuit of.

00:07:03--> 00:07:20

So lowering your wings, or lowering your wing means that you don't feel that you are above others. Now another verse, that amendment no Rahim Allah wa Taala. Included was a verse from or it's a verse from sorbitol, Matt ADA.

00:07:21--> 00:07:38

Verse 54. Yeah, you have Lavina Manu may have tagged them in Command D, for Sophia Tila will be at home in your home, where you have buena who as in Latin, Allah meaning is akin lol Catherine las panatela. He says,

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

are you who believe

00:07:41--> 00:07:55

whoever from among whoever from among you turns back from his religion. Allah will bring a people whom he will love and that will love him humble towards the believers stern towards the disbelievers.

00:07:56--> 00:08:10

So, in this area, Allah subhanaw taala is addressing the belief is known then what meaning are you who believe Yeah, you Hallelujah, Amen. Oh, man, you're attacked the man you're attacked them in command, Dini, he,

00:08:11--> 00:08:23

that whoever apostates turns his back against the Dean of Islam. So he is a Muslim and he becomes a non Muslim.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

If when people start to do this, or people do this,

00:08:28--> 00:08:36

for Sophia tillow will be a problem in your head. But you know, Allah will replace those people, with people who love

00:08:37--> 00:08:43

with people, you have bought a home, becoming you have bought a home with people who will love

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

him he will love and they will love him. You have bought a home where you have gone

00:08:56--> 00:09:06

Don't be surprised brothers and sisters in Islam, that from time to time you may hear you may hear of an individual a Muslim who becomes a disbeliever

00:09:08--> 00:09:17

although this is very rare, this is something very rare. However, it does happen. There are individuals who Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

who disbelieve in Allah azza wa jal after having been Muslims and believers.

00:09:25--> 00:09:43

So this is very sad. And we hear of it. And this is why a Muslim should never take his Deen never take his Eman And he's taqwa for granted. And always ask Allah azza wa jal to protect you to protect your deen and safeguard your deen

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

and there is four months ago, the prophet SAW Selim,

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Allah Malacca, Alamo Seba, te fi Dini, do not make my masiva my calamity, my trial to be with regards to my Dean

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

And

00:10:02--> 00:10:28

I want to dwell on this point only because this week, I came across one of these individuals, I came across a man who has been to hedge, who has a family who attended many lessons in Islam. And so Pamela, this individual sat in front of me. And he said to me, I now question the existence of God.

00:10:30--> 00:10:34

I now question that God exists. So Pamela,

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

I was shocked.

00:10:38--> 00:10:39

How could a person

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

who has come so far

00:10:43--> 00:10:50

and has learned about their Deen and performed hygiene, perform salah and been a practicing Muslim for so long?

00:10:52--> 00:11:04

Finally, or say to himself, that I question the existence of God? Because there are certain things that don't add up, I cannot believe that God has no beginning.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

So we reminded him about

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

the verses of Allah looking at the creation looking at

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

looking at this creation, and how could it be that such an amazing system?

00:11:20--> 00:11:27

How could it be that this world just came about? How could it be that

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

you know, the way the sun,

00:11:31--> 00:12:03

you know, the sun rises and sets in the moon, and all the, you know, when you look around you, there are signs that that basically tell us that there is a creator? And, for example, if you were walking on the beach, and you see a laptop computer on the beach sitting on the sand? Would you say that that laptop just came into existence out of the ocean, that the ocean just spat it out? was just there and nobody made it? Or would you say somebody made that laptop,

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

or phone or whatever it is?

00:12:07--> 00:12:11

So, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he sent us Prophet, he sent us messages, he sent us scriptures.

00:12:13--> 00:12:36

And the point that I'm making here is that do not be surprised if you hear this. But at the same time, don't take your Eman for granted. Because there are some people who are only losing the men and losing their faith when he has a belief. So always ask Allah azza wa jal to safeguard your men, to safeguard your Islam.

00:12:37--> 00:12:54

And to look at the facts and look at the evidence, and remember that our intellects are limited, there are many things will not comprehend, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually warned us about this, and he said, that

00:12:56--> 00:13:05

you will have these whisperings that shaitan will whisper to you who created this and who created that who created a lot.

00:13:06--> 00:13:20

And when you have these thoughts, the process lm said, to cease to put a stop towards this towards these thoughts and to say RO Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Stop thinking about it, and say I will be like I'm going to shut down the regime.

00:13:22--> 00:13:43

So, this is one very important strategy, that when you have these thoughts, to put an end to those thoughts immediately, and to say out Billahi min, Ash shaytaan regime, and look at the facts and remember that that our minds and our brains are limited. They cannot any comprehend all things.

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

So in this verse, Allah subhana wa Taala says, that

00:13:53--> 00:14:24

he will bring a people whom he will love, and they will love him. Now when it comes to Allah Subhana which is love, some people ask the question, and that is how do we know that Allah subhana wa Taala loves us? What are the signs? How will we ever know that Allah actually loves us? And hamdulillah there are signs of this that Allah with the scores of Islam have spoken about that there are signs regarding the knowledge that Allah azza wa jal loves you.

00:14:27--> 00:14:31

Number one from amongst the ways and there are many ways of knowing if Allah azza wa jal loves you

00:14:32--> 00:14:44

is if you find yourself consistently remembering Allah azza wa jal whether it's through your heart, through your words, words of remembrance, recital of the end,

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

whether it's actions of your limbs, performing Salah, performing hajj, performing Amara giving sadaqa This is a sign that Allah loves you that Allah azza wa jal has given you a lot of zoa jen has given

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

You have the ability and has given you

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

the hidayah and the guidance for you to actually

00:15:09--> 00:15:22

do those things for his sake. So the first sign would be constantly remembering Allah azza wa jal and that there is consistency in your fulfillment of your duties towards Allah azza wa jal.

00:15:24--> 00:15:29

Another sign is when you love what Allah loves. If you want to know

00:15:30--> 00:15:37

that Allah loves you, you ask yourself, do you love what Allah loves? So if you find yourself loving,

00:15:38--> 00:15:46

the messenger Muhammad SAW center, loving the whole affair of Russia, Dune loving,

00:15:47--> 00:15:54

imagines people of knowledge scholars, those who propagate who spread Islam,

00:15:55--> 00:16:07

finding yourself loving the righteous people. Okay, this is a sign of Allah Azza which has love towards you loving what Allah subhana wa Taala loves.

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

Number three

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

is

00:16:12--> 00:16:21

when your heart you find your heart is constantly leaning towards that which pleases Allah.

00:16:23--> 00:16:32

So those actions that are pleasing to Allah, you find your heart leaning towards them, that's another sign of Allah azza wa jal love towards you.

00:16:36--> 00:16:52

Another sign is carrying out acts of worship. So again, fulfilling your duties, fulfilling your duties, you're solid, you're Psalm Ramadan, he was okay. You Hajj if you

00:16:53--> 00:17:09

fulfilling your duties, then that is a sign. That is a sign that las panatela loves you because you're putting those acts of worship in front of your desires. Because your desires and your whims may be compelling you and

00:17:10--> 00:17:28

guiding you and directing you to not do those things. But if you find yourself doing them, while you don't want to do them, maybe because you're busy or because of some preoccupation, then that's a good sign to show that Allah Subhana Allah loves you.

00:17:32--> 00:17:52

So if you find yourself for example, that you drop everything when Salah time Salah time arrives and comes about and that's a sign that Allah loves you when you hear the call to praise Allah salah and Highland Farah and you attend the prayer and you leave your work.

00:17:54--> 00:18:08

And that's a sign that allows power to Allah loves you. Okay, so these are and there are other signs that are element have mentioned but I just wanted to mention a few of them. And they These are some of the signs that show that Allah Subhana Allah loves you.

00:18:09--> 00:18:28

And if Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you, then amazing things can happen in your life. So many beautiful things can happen in your life. And Allah subhanho wa Taala can bless you and reward you in this life. And more importantly in the hereafter in sha Allah to Allah

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

mmm no he Rahim Allah who to Allah. He mentioned another verse.

00:18:40--> 00:19:06

Failure to set coup and full circle who will be money Taka certain najem verse 32. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. Don't praise yourself. Do not praise yourselves. He says, fella to Zaku and fusa comb, fella to Sacco and fusa comb, who will be many taco that he knows. He knows best.

00:19:07--> 00:19:23

Him who feeds Allah and keeps his duty to him. He knows who they are so tender praising yourself. That's not from the etiquettes of a Muslim in the manners of a Muslim to go about praising himself, praising his Eman and praising his taqwa.

00:19:26--> 00:19:37

Now, remember, we're a Mahalo to Allah. He included a number of hadiths, a number of prophetic traditions to do with this chapter of being humble and having a Chihuahua.

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

Now,

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

the first Hadees that he mentions is the Hadith of

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

the bin hemera the Allahu anhu reported

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

that

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Allah has revealed to me

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

You should Humble yourselves to one another. One should neither hold himself above another, no transgressed against another and fantasize Muslim.

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

So again, a hadith of humbling yourself and

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

not holding yourself above others.

00:20:22--> 00:20:47

So to treat each other humbly, leniently lovingly. Okay, this is what's the message here and this hadith another Hadith that mmm no we Rahim Allah Allahu taala included which is about how Allah subhana wa Taala praises the honor, he raises the honor of the one who forgives The one who forgives others

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

abou hora de Allahu Allahu Allah. He report in this hadith is fantasias Muslim

00:20:56--> 00:21:10

man ah Casazza cotton mean men, that is, wealth does not diminish or reduce by giving sadaqa so when you give sadaqa when you give for the sake of Allah, when you give charity, your wealth does not decrease. It doesn't decrease.

00:21:13--> 00:21:15

In how many times have we given sadaqa

00:21:16--> 00:21:25

and we find that we still have today we still have money in our wallets, we still have food, we still have drink, we still have means of livelihood, even though we give something

00:21:27--> 00:21:45

and then the prophet SAW Selim, he goes on and he says, Mazda the love who I've done, bf when in there is that is that Allah paises the honor of one who forgives, Allah raises the honor of the one who's forgiving.

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

Don't have this pride.

00:21:50--> 00:21:59

When tava lillahi Illa Allah and the prophet SAW Selim said that

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

and one who serves and other seeking the pleasure of Allah, Allah will exalt Him in ranks, a low will exalt Him in ranks.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

So again,

00:22:14--> 00:22:21

Allah Subhana Allah blesses the wealth of the one that gives us other co How does Allah Sparta bless the wealth, and it you've given from it?

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

It could be in a number of ways. One of the ways it could be that Allah Subhana Allah

00:22:27--> 00:22:40

blesses the rest of his wealth in such a way that the sense of loss is removed from his mind. He doesn't look like he doesn't even perceive it, or feel it as a loss.

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

In the next Hadith,

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

we learn how the Sahaba the Allahu anhu would mimic

00:22:49--> 00:23:02

the humility and the humbleness and the simplicity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the hadith of Anna's for the Allahu anhu we finally Buhari a Muslim.

00:23:05--> 00:23:14

It is stated that ns he passed by some children and he greeted them by saying Assalamu alaikum.

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

And

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

then he said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

can be was Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Yes, Allah who said, the prophet SAW Selim, he used to do the same.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

So when the prophet SAW Selim would be walking past children, he would say to them, Assalamu alaikum

00:23:39--> 00:23:42

You know, I'm older than you, I'm bigger than you. They're just kids.

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

So to greet saying Assalamu alaykum small children is an excellent expression of humbleness at the world, and being humble.

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

In the next Hadith is the Hadith.

00:24:01--> 00:24:36

About the slave girl that I mentioned to you from Medina. This Hadith is fairness to him Buhari and here, and as in Melaka, the Allahu anhu reported that a slave girl of El Medina would take hold of the hand of the prophet SAW Selim, and take him wherever she desired. So again, this hadith throws light on the sublime courtesy, and the sublime courtesy and unique humbleness of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as well as his passion to meet the wants of the needy.

00:24:37--> 00:24:42

He always wanted to help those who were in need. He was selfless and not selfish, thinking about others.

00:24:45--> 00:24:56

And so panela the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would display his humbleness at home. And we read in the hadith of

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

an S with Ebony as either of your loved one who

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

That when I shall the Allahu anhu was asked, What is the Messenger of Allah? What did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do?

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

inside his house?

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

And she answered can a akuna female at a hilly Canyon Khanna yaku nofima hannity.

00:25:24--> 00:25:27

In other words, he was, he used to

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

keep himself busy helping the members of his family

00:25:36--> 00:25:44

for either hover to Salah hora de la sala, and when it was the time for Salah, he would get up for prayer.

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

So, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:51--> 00:26:23

was in his family's home, he was hoping he was at the service of his household members. But when the time for Salah came, he didn't allow for the chores, or he didn't allow for the work at home to stand in front of the solar. The solar is a priority. And that's why, when the event is sounded, we need to drop what we are doing, and get ready for the solar. Get ready for the solar.

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

The next Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us he is

00:26:34--> 00:26:49

again his humbleness and his humility and his consideration of others, even when he was delivering a hookah once and he interrupted his hook back to attend to a person who has come

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

in the Hadith that is found in Sahih. Muslim

00:26:55--> 00:27:15

Tamim bin crusade. radi Allahu Akbar reported. He said, I came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was delivering a hook back and said, messenger of Allah, a stranger, meaning himself has come to inquire about his Deen.

00:27:17--> 00:27:37

He's quite ignorant about his Deen. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam interrupted his hook back and turned to me. Then a chair was brought for him, and he sat on it. He started instructing me what Allah had taught him. Then he resumed his hopper and completed it.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

So, the prophet SAW Selim

00:27:45--> 00:28:11

shows you in here, how he left the hookah is in the middle of a hotbed. And he comes down from the member. And he sits this persona che and he teaches him some aspects relativity that are important, and it goes back up to the hook back to deliver the hook back. This also shows from a filter perspective, that it is permissible for the MLM to

00:28:12--> 00:28:19

interrupt his hotbed if there is some need, or to talk to a member of the congregation,

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

if there is a need to do so, and then resume.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

Now, Islam, as you know, is a practical way of life.

00:28:32--> 00:28:49

And in the next Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, again, teaches us the manners and etiquette when it comes to eating. And again, how we should always humble ourselves and have this humility at all times, even if it comes to the food.

00:28:51--> 00:29:31

And as fidella han who reported that when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finished eating his food, he would lick his three fingers, he would lick his three fingers, meaning his middle finger, his index finger and his thumb. Because these are the fingers that he would eat from. And it's so nice to eat with your fingers. And it has been proven that when you eat from your fingers, there is some substance that is released from your fingers, that as you're eating, it enters into your stomach, and it helps with the digestion of your food. And this has been proven scientifically as well. So there is a benefit in eating with your fingers and licking your fingers.

00:29:32--> 00:29:42

Contrary to what might be, you know, the etiquettes maybe in the Western world or maybe in some culture.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

So the pros are tell them, he said, If any one of you drop some morsel that was a piece, a morsel of food, he should remove anything harmful from it and then edit. So even if you drop it on the ground, you should you know, clean that up. Fix

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

Whatever you have to do, and then they just throw it away. You know, unless you know that it's going, you know, it's it's on very dirty ground and they could really affect your health or whatever. But if it's fallen and you can remove the dirt or clean it or wash it or what have you, then this is the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim.

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

He should not leave it for the shaitan. He said, Don't leave it for the shaitan

00:30:23--> 00:31:00

he commanded us to clean out the dish, saying, you do not know in what portion of your food the blessing lies. So when you come to eat your, your food, there is a there is a plot a place in the food, or where there's a burqa in eating, there's a Baraka, there's a blessing. And that's why Islam teaches us to eat any, any time to eat the entire meal, and to lick your fingers. So that way you ensure that the Baraka, the blessing part of the food has been gained.

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

Now,

00:31:05--> 00:31:11

we learn also that all of the profits, and all of the messages were shepherds.

00:31:13--> 00:31:25

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Abu radi Allahu, Allahu Allah, He said that every prophet had, or has tend to cheap, every prophet has tend to cheap.

00:31:27--> 00:31:39

And he was asked, and did you, will you In other words, a shepherd as well, you're a Salalah. And he said, Yes, I tended them for a few carrots for the mccanns.

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

So,

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

and the hikma behind that, is that

00:31:48--> 00:32:15

we tend sheep, when you're a shepherd, it prepared prepares you to lead a people because you start to take on some of the traits, characteristics of leadership by being a shepherd, you know, rounding up your herd or your flock, okay, ensuring that they don't get out of hand. You know, tending to them, leading them. Okay.

00:32:17--> 00:32:35

So again, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was did not shy away and show pride. Or, you know that in Santa Ana, I wasn't a shepherd, that yes, I was a shepherd. Just as the prophets in the messengers before me was shepherds.

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

Another display the promise ourselves, humbleness

00:32:42--> 00:33:07

is the hardest of Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allahu wa. There is fairness ahead before the process, lm said, If I am invited to a meal, consisting of a sheep's foot or shoulder, I will respond, and I will accept as a gift, a shoulder or a foot of a shape. So this is this also exemplifies the humbleness of ourselves,

00:33:08--> 00:33:36

that it doesn't matter what food was being served, that he would respect the invitation. And, and this is from the etiquettes, of, of a Muslim, or from the manners is that a that a Muslim when he is invited to a walima when he is invited to a banquet, or to a feast that he attends, and respects the fact that he has been invited? Unless of course, he's been invited prior

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

by somebody else. Oh, he has a reason not to go.

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

And

00:33:43--> 00:33:53

in the next Hadeeth, we learned that Allah never keeps anything in the world on the rise eternally, nothing stays, you know, in its lofty position forever.

00:33:55--> 00:34:10

And as in Malik radiola, one who reported at the messenger of us I sell him had a she camel, the promise I sell him had a female camel, which was known as Althea a lot sorry, Albert, Albert.

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

And other

00:34:15--> 00:34:23

which would not allow any other camel to surpass her. She was like the fastest camel. No other camel could beat you know.

00:34:26--> 00:34:36

And then one day, a bedwin. Came riding his camel which outstripped an alpha it out run this camera the products are selling

00:34:38--> 00:34:48

and the messenger the Muslims were actually upset about this. The upset at the prophets camel was beaten by another camel made them upset.

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

Anyone processor lambs camel to be beaten.

00:34:53--> 00:34:53

So

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

the prophet SAW Selim.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

He said it is it is awesome.

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

Laws way that he lowers whatever raises itself in the world. So this hadith My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

it underlines

00:35:12--> 00:35:22

a principle of Allah, a principle of Allah, that he never keeps anything in the world on the rise eternally. Nothing will stay up there forever.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

Whatever goes up, must come down.

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

It will not stay up forever.

00:35:33--> 00:35:40

No leader will be a leader forever to come a time where his leadership will be removed from him or he will pass away

00:35:43--> 00:35:49

to everything, or every rising star has its eventual decline, it will decline.

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

The next chapter that a man will know he

00:35:54--> 00:36:14

included is the opposite of the chapter that we just took. And that is, he says babbu the Hemel Kippur with a jab it's haram to have Kippur the condemnation of pride and self conceit and here a man will never him Allah tala also include a number of hadiths

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

and

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

in the first half that he mentioned that it's fair to say a Muslim

00:36:22--> 00:36:35

is the hadith of Abdullah bin Miss Rosa de Allahu Allahu Allah, the prophet SAW Selim said, He who has in his heart and adds weight of arrogance will not enter gender.

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

This is a very serious Hadith that whoever has an ant weight of kibber of pride in his heart will not intergender

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

mankind if you call behemoths power with a rotten milk kibble

00:36:52--> 00:37:06

so a man said for Colorado alone, in a radula, you him boo, and your coolness, oh, boohoo Hassan, when Allah who has Santa, he said, a man likes to wear beautiful clothes and shoes.

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

The prompts are seldom said

00:37:10--> 00:37:12

in the law. Hi, Jamie alone.

00:37:13--> 00:37:31

You have Bolger man. I'll keep bureau back roll Haku Welcome to nurse. He said that Allah is beautiful, and he loves beauty. Allah is beautiful. There's nothing wrong with beautifying yourself.

00:37:32--> 00:37:39

Dressing up in a way that makes you look very beautiful. Having beautiful clothes, beautiful shoes.

00:37:42--> 00:37:58

arrogance means ridiculing and rejecting the truth and despising people. That's what's meant here. By arrogance. We need despise others when you despise others.

00:38:01--> 00:38:29

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for amongst the manners and etiquettes when it comes to food is to eat with your right hand and to eat from what is directly in front of you. And not just to be eating, especially if you're eating with a group of people from one big plate. Not to be just eating from here and from there, but to eat with your rights and to eat from what is directly in front of you. In the hadith of selama ebenen Aquila, the Allahu anhu

00:38:30--> 00:38:40

that is fantasized Muslim. One day a man was eating in the presence was eating in the presence of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:38:42--> 00:38:53

with his left hand, he was eating with his left hand. And the prophet SAW Selim, he said to him, eat with your right hand, eat with your right hand. He said, I cannot.

00:38:55--> 00:39:18

And the purpose of selling said to him, may you never be able to do that. It was arrogance that I prevented him from doing it. So he was just arrogant. Not that he couldn't do it, but he was arrogant. He didn't want to eat with his right hand. So the product seller made against him. So because you said that out of arrogance, may You not be able to eat with your right hand.

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

And so Pamela

00:39:23--> 00:39:35

Harris states and he could not raise it up to his mouth Afterwards, he was not able to move to actually raise his right hand up to his mouth after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:39:37--> 00:39:41

from amongst the people who will go to hell fire up for amongst the inmates of the hellfire.

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

We learned that they are people who have pride.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

And in the hadith of haritha, Eben Wahab, the Allahu anhu that is Phantom Buhari, and his family Muslim. The Messenger of Allah wa sallam said, shall I inform you

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

About the inmates of Hill. He said, Allah, mira cumbia Elinor,

00:40:07--> 00:40:17

he said kulu to Linda well then was stuck beer is every violent, impertinent and proud person.

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

We even learn about a dialogue or a dispute that took place between Hellfire and Jenna and paradise. In the case of Abu Satan in the Allahu Akbar, that we find in Sahih Muslim

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:40:41--> 00:40:58

there was a dispute between hell and gender and health said the haughty and proud in me, the gentleness said in May of the week and the humble, humble people are in gender proudful people are in the hellfire.

00:41:00--> 00:41:21

They're upon Allah, the Exalted judge between them saying you the agenda are my mercy, and through you, I shall show mercy to those who may wish and addressing the hellfire. Allah subhanho wa Taala said, You are my punishment to punish him I wish amongst my slaves, and each one of you will have its feel.

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

From amongst the,

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

from amongst the things that show arrogance.

00:41:33--> 00:41:42

According to this hadith of those people, and this is referring to males who wear their clothes, or their

00:41:43--> 00:41:48

ears are on the lower garments below their ankles out of pride.

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

And this is something that

00:41:55--> 00:42:08

has been mentioned by the aroma. According to the Hadith, abou hora de Allahu anhu, reported the message of Allah saw Selim said, on the Day of Resurrection, Allah will not look at him for trails, his lower garment out of pride.

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

And

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

this

00:42:14--> 00:42:22

is known as Ellis Bell, his Bell, when you wear your lower garments, whether it be your pants, or

00:42:23--> 00:42:38

anything that you wear from your waist down, and then you allow it to exceed your ankles. And you do it out of pride is spelled according to this Hadith, Allah will not look at this person.

00:42:42--> 00:43:08

And the role I might have differed regarding those who do out of pride and those who don't do it out of pride between those who say that even if you don't do it out of pride, there are Hadith that as fellow kabini phenol, that whatever is underneath the cab, or the two ankles will be in the hellfire. And then some scholars said no, this is only if it's done out of pride, as other hats have mentioned.

00:43:10--> 00:43:24

So the sooner when it comes to males lower garments, where they're wearing up a Felber bear or pants that they are above the ankles and even more so halfway

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

on the shins.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

Any that's the sooner

00:43:32--> 00:43:54

in this next Hadith, Abu huraira, the Allahu Allahu Allah. He reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, there are three types of people to whom Allah will not speak on the Day of Resurrection, nor will he purify them, no look at them, and they will have a painful punishment.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

Three types of people, Allah subhanaw taala will not even look at them.

00:44:04--> 00:44:12

So he won't speak to them. He won't purify them, and he will look at them. And they have a punishment. So Pamela,

00:44:13--> 00:44:22

and he mentions number one, an aged man who commits Zina, an older man who commits adultery, or fornication.

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

Okay, Allah won't even look at that man.

00:44:26--> 00:44:29

Because like, by the time he's gotten to an old age, he should be

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

wiser. He should have more fear of Allah azza wa jal, and he continues to do that. This is problematic, and there's a serious problem there. So there is a serious punishment.

00:44:45--> 00:44:53

The second one is a ruler who lies a leader of a people who lies in lying is condemned in Islam

00:44:54--> 00:44:57

and especially from a person who's leading a people

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

and number three,

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

Proud, poor person having pride.

00:45:08--> 00:45:12

There's another Hadith that talks about how a man was swallowed by the earth.

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

As a result of his pride,

00:45:16--> 00:45:35

it's the harvest of Abu huraira Allahu Allah, that we find is Muslim. At the Messenger of Allah wa sallam said, while a man was walking, dressed in clothes, admiring himself, his hair combed, walking heartily, when Allah cause the earth to swallow him,

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

Earth swallowed him up.

00:45:42--> 00:45:49

Now, he will continue to go down in it as a punishment until the Day of Resurrection.

00:45:50--> 00:45:54

So this was a punishment for this person for having this kibble, for having pride.

00:45:56--> 00:46:15

This is a very serious disease, to have kibber and have pride and see yourself as being above others superior to others, because of maybe your knowledge, or your wealth, or your lineage, or your status, your leadership.

00:46:17--> 00:46:26

So again, this hadith warns us against self praise and arrogance, which may pervade our hearts, by fine clothes and physical beauty,

00:46:27--> 00:46:47

and Salama urban equality Allah one who reported the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Men continues to display haughtiness and arrogance, until he is recorded among the arrogant and will be therefore afflicted with what affects them.

00:46:48--> 00:46:51

So this is a number of Hadith, or these were a number of hadiths

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

that talk about

00:46:56--> 00:47:29

the illness of having pride Jazakallah Hainan wa sallahu wa selama or Baraka Nabina Muhammad We ask Allah azza wa jal to purify our hearts to make us from amongst those who follow in the example of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and his humbleness and his terroir and to safeguard us from El kebir. from having Kibriya from having pride, Willa hota Island island for sallallahu wasallam Rebecca Elena Bina Mohamed, Salah molekule La Habra, cat
