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

hamdulillah for salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

Singaporeans last night when I said Salaam I was amazed because people actually responded usually when you're speaking and you start having like,

00:00:55--> 00:01:08

you know, but here in Singapore yesterday it was like oh, there was some emotion to it. And just now is even more than yesterday in sha Allah I hope to see two more to be even stronger and really loud in sha Allah to Allah, Masha Allah.

00:01:10--> 00:01:22

Brothers and sisters, how many of you this is something I usually do in Malaysia, I will start off with some questions. So how many of you were at last night's lecture? Raise your hand and sisters and just hold your sleeve and raise your hand? Okay.

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

Why are you laughing?

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

Okay, good.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

Pop quiz.

00:01:36--> 00:02:01

Last night, I was mentioning, we were talking about the fitna of family and wealth. And one of the brothers sitting down with right now, he was reminding me about last night's topic because I was telling him about something that happened to me today. So it's sort of a continuation to the fitna of family and wealth that has been hitting me since I left Malaysia.

00:02:02--> 00:02:19

When I left Malaysia, for those of you that were there last night, you know what happened, you know, my family didn't end up coming to Singapore. And when I arrived, we went through the whole welcoming at the airport. And today, I was tested with another fitna of the family. Okay.

00:02:20--> 00:02:29

I was out with some of the brothers today during the day taking me around Singapore, Mashallah real beautiful city, I mean, country is a real small country.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

Sorry, it's like the size of KL

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

actually smaller than kale. So we're going around

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

Singapore, I was gonna say Singapore city, but in Singapore Incorporated,

00:02:43--> 00:03:03

in Singapore Incorporated, and, you know, spending a nice day out and the law, and I had the beautiful cake that I was desiring for an entire year and a week now. So we went to FIFA, and we had a beautiful slice of cake. For those of you that don't know, the restaurant, it's highlighted. So give them some business challenge. They have the best case.

00:03:04--> 00:03:42

So we were there at pika. And then, you know, I kept looking at my watch, I'm like, Okay, brother, God, that is time we gotta go, you know, I need to just do a little bit of revision. So he takes me back to my hotel, and I'm thinking I'm gonna do some revision, just look over my notes. So I go over to my laptop, open it up. And the file that has the notes for tonight's lecture is not in my laptop, I have no idea where it is, I'm searching everywhere, I spent a half an hour searching for this file. Maybe I saved it as a different name. I found the file name clicked on it, it doesn't want to open them. Like, last time with iOS testing me here with the wealth of my computer, I need a

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

MacBook.

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

Dell is just going.

00:03:47--> 00:04:29

And then as you know, I'm searching for this file. I'm going through it and then I go through my email account. I'm looking through my email, maybe I sent it to my wife, I do that sometimes backup my stuff by sending it to my wife. And then I figured you know what, let me just ask my wife. So then, at that point in time, I realized I had saved the file on my thumb drive that was attached to my key chain. And when I left Malaysia, okay, right before I left, my wife and my daughter couldn't come. So I gave my wife my house keys. I said, Here's house keys, you get on the bus go back to KL I'm gonna head off to Singapore. And attached to my keys was the thumb drive that had my notes for

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

tonight's lecture. So my wife as my family, it was the fitna, or the trial, I would say, as or in preparing for tonight's lecture. So I went back to my hotel room after that, and I was just like, All right, let me just pull it all out in my head in sha Allah, and allowed the use of the internet you know, you can just pull a few last minute things together. And that's something that I you know, use my brain and the internet and everything in the family and all that so it worked out really well. And as admin

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

And yesterday brothers and sisters, you know, using your family as people who will help you educate your family and your family should educate you back. For those of you that were there yesterday, a lot of tonight's you know the the information that I couldn't remember or the extra points that I'm going to mention tonight. They came from my wife, she is there kale and she's like, okay, talk about this, talk about that. And she's sending me a text message saying all these things that I should talk about. So use your family members as a means of your own education educate them, so one day they can educate you back in sha Allah to Hannah. So we'll proceed with tonight's lecture.

00:05:40--> 00:06:06

Tonight is the topic of the 10 companions who were granted or promised the entrance into gentlemen, and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes like this. He says, Abu Bakar Phil Jenna orama Phil Jenna worth man Phil Jenna Wiley Yun, Phil Jenna, Paul. Phil. Jenna was rooby Roo, Phil Jana Wyatt.

00:06:07--> 00:06:40

Phil Jenna was Sargon Phil Jenna was sorry, don't feel agenda or obey that ninja. Why Phil Jana? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith he mentions the names of these 10 companions. He says aboubaker will be in Jannah. Rama will be in Jana earthman is in Gemina Ali is in general. palha is in Jana Zubair is in Jana

00:06:41--> 00:06:58

is in Jana? Sarah is in Jana, sorry, is in Germany, and other VEDA in Java is in gentlemen, let me ask you a question brothers and sisters, raise your hands which one of you is going to Jenna

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

I see a father holding the hand of his child up in the air. And he's right.

00:07:10--> 00:07:48

The father may not be able to raise his hand in the air because he has no idea upon which creed upon which belief upon what he will be when he passes away. In that child of his is still someone who is below the age of maturity, someone who is free from any sins. And in short, a lot of data is that child passes away before the age of maturity. That person that child, any child will be automatically placed into gender. But the question is how much of you or who amongst you will be in Jannah? Raise your hands?

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

Why is it that not a single one of you raised your hand?

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

You're not supposed to laugh you're supposed to answer. Last night we had this laughing exercise.

00:08:04--> 00:08:10

Why is it that we cannot raise our hands when we're asked if we will be in Genoa.

00:08:11--> 00:08:44

Thank you very much, there is no assurance there is no guarantee that we will enter gentlemen. And these companions of the prophets of the lower eyelid He will send them 10 of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and there are some women as well. That will enter agenda inshallah Tada. That's a course that I'm working on right now. So we're putting a course together with regards to men and women that will enter gender that were promised agenda. One of the reasons why we cannot admit or say or state that we're going to generalize because we have no idea.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

Except for these companions that were mentioned in this hadith amongst the men. These are the companions that are guaranteed or promised entrance into paradise.

00:08:56--> 00:09:12

But the question is, did they live their life after they knew they were going to paradise? As people who are walking the streets being jackin? Did they walk the streets as people who were proud and had pride saying, I'm going to paradise?

00:09:14--> 00:09:21

know they didn't do that. In fact, some of them when they were asked like it, it'll be longer than when he was asked.

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

Why is it that he continues to do certain actions that he does, when he knows that he was practiced and that he was promised genda and this was something that was applied to all of these companions? When you ask one of them, why is it that you still strive so hard? Why is it that you sacrifice your health and your wealth and your time and you sweat during the day and you stay awake during the night? Why do you do that when you know very well, you're going to go to Paradise. those very same companions would say it is because maybe

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

There's a condition attached to that. Maybe there's a condition attached to that promise that you will go to Jamaica. If you act this way. You go to Jamaica, if you're obedient to Allah subhana wa Tada. You will go to Jamaica, if you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But these companions, they did not stop and say, Okay, I'm going to paradise, I don't need to do anything more. No, they continued, they kept going, we kept going, we kept going, they went the distance. And we look at these companions, their lives have had a lot they dedicated so much of their life. And we'll get into some stories, we can't mention everything about each one of these 10

00:10:41--> 00:10:57

companions, because there's so much to mention, but we'll pull out a few points or a few stories that we can benefit from the lives of some of these companions. One thing that is important to note brothers and sisters that each one of these companions

00:10:59--> 00:11:18

accepted Islam during the early stages. They were from amongst those muslimeen that supported the prophets in the long run in your center. And this demonstrates this shows to us the love that these companions had for the profits of a long running a salon as well as a loss of reward.

00:11:19--> 00:11:30

For in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that if we love Allah, then follow the messenger of Allah subhana wa tada follow Mohammed.

00:11:31--> 00:11:48

input on Dr. Boone and Debbie Rooney, your common law, if you love Allah subhanho wa Taala. Follow the actions, the Sunnah, the way, the life, the style, the method of the prophets, in the long run, he will send them and Allah will love you back

00:11:50--> 00:12:01

to Panama brothers and sisters, that's like a golden ticket. Who here remembers that? That book that I read when I was in like, grade six or something Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

00:12:02--> 00:12:06

Do you remember that golden ticket to get into Willy Wonka's factory.

00:12:08--> 00:12:15

Imagine input into a law firm Debbie Rooney, you didn't come a long

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

way of a federal law.

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

And the laws of Canada will love you. If you love the profits in the long run, he will send them sooner you implement it and you try to do that.

00:12:30--> 00:12:54

So we have some examples of these companions that they were from amongst the first ones to accept Islam. We look at Abu Bakar of the Lama, who was Abu Bakar besides the fact that he was one of the or the firt we can't say who's the first person because Khadija Viola and how was but from amongst the men are the adults, he was one of the first ones to accept this nun. Correct.

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

Who was a boubakeur of the mama and

00:12:59--> 00:13:15

he was the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best friend of the prophets on a lot harder than he was. He was his companion throughout the hijra. He helped him through thick and thin, and he was his father in law.

00:13:16--> 00:13:20

How many of us have that type of a relationship with our father in law?

00:13:21--> 00:13:27

Raise your hand amongst you Who is the best friend with your father in law?

00:13:33--> 00:13:45

who is married? Raise your hand? Don't be shy. You have to. It's compulsory in my lecture. who's married raise your hand from amongst the men and the women?

00:13:50--> 00:13:56

Who amongst you is best friends with your mother in law or your father in law? I'm giving you a 5050 chance here.

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

Come on. Usually the brothers are good close friends with the mother in law, right? You know.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

I love my mother in law, she takes my side.

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

She's always telling my wife to do it. Your husband needs to

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

come home. She's like, go sit down, put your feet up. Give him his t

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

shirt. I love my mother in law.

00:14:29--> 00:14:47

The profits of the long run he was his best friend was his father in law. His best friend was his father in law, a person who he kept really close to him. We look at other examples of these companions, where they stood up for the truth.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

At the beginning stages of Islam, the very few people who became Muslim, they were real, real strong upon the deen. I want you to

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

Imagine for example, one of the companions being tortured at the very beginning of Islam laying down on the ground that is burning hot. You know when I was in Medina one day I arrived back to Medina. I traveled from Canada. It was like a two day journey I got there. I carried my suitcases up to my room. The German football had already begun. Myself and my roommate we rushed off to the masjid to catch Juma. We reached the masjid and this Allah started already, and we prayed in the street. We prayed in the street at one of the massages near the university. It was Juma on a Friday afternoon. And we had no carpet underneath us. We prayed on the street. We had blisters on our knees, and we're

00:15:50--> 00:16:33

wearing pants, you know you're wearing pants, you still get blisters. That's how hot it is through your pants on the street. Now imagine the rock, the Senate, how hot it gets. It's like just generating heat, it feels as though it is the sun keeps coming out of the ground. And these companions who accepted Islam at the very first stages, when the profits on the lawn mower I mean some of them received the revelation. They went through difficulties where they were tortured, where they're replaced, to lay down flat on the ground, with their skin on the ground, and rocks being piled on top of them and being hit and beaten. But yet they still held on to what they believed in.

00:16:33--> 00:17:02

And they supported the profits in the long run. He was on them as much as he needed. When the profits on the long run he was some of them was being stoned when people were throwing rocks at him when they were throwing junk and garbage his way. The Companions that had accepted Islam during that time. They were the ones that made themselves to be a human shield in front of the prophets on the lower audio seminar. You know, today we think of invincibility and the Brotherhood is that thing that they do here

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

with the jinns

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

good a kippah

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

something with you guys know what it is. You understand what I just said?

00:17:25--> 00:17:32

Keep on, keep on keep on good at HIPAA. Who knows what good acupuncture is, raise your hand.

00:17:36--> 00:18:08

That is a very May Allah subhanho wa Taala say each and every one of us from something like that that is using from what I understand. I didn't witness it specifically, but I was told about it. Something that happens in the streets. And it's happening, you know, in the streets right now, as we were coming here, where people use the gin and they use shaman to strengthen themselves to show invincibility. They are these companions, they didn't need anything. They were the invincibility. They were the shield of the profits on the long run.

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

When blood flowed from their bodies, it didn't matter to them. Because a man was on the inside of the body. It was this belief that they held they concealed within them. And they were there through thick and thin with the profits of a lot more I need to ascend them.

00:18:26--> 00:18:48

They were not afraid of what people thought of them as well. during those first few years, they were not afraid of what anybody thought of them. In fact, they would come out and expose themselves as being Muslim during the time when they were not supposed to only because they were trying to protect another brother or sister in a snap. So Panama brothers and sisters, this is something that we need to keep in mind.

00:18:49--> 00:19:35

We look at the example of Omar of the Alomar, I'm one of the companions that was granted agenda as we mentioned the 10 names of the companions. When the prophet SAW in the long run he was seldom said about him when he's coming or he's walking to a specific place. The shape on goes the other way is Panama who amongst us has a man that's so strong, and our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala is not it's not strict. Don't think of Ahmed as being someone who is strict. We know many times when Norman would shed tears. He was really soft, really kind. He was not someone that was always very stern as you know a lot of people make it out to seem he was someone whose belief was firm. You could not

00:19:35--> 00:19:45

shake it. When he accepted Islam that was it. The Muslim the mean they were protected. They knew a loss. That's it. We have our motto the alarm.

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

And the profits in the long

00:19:49--> 00:19:56

ago in the shade on would go the other way. Because there was like, forget it. There's no chance we can't shake him. This is

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

we just move aside.

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

Who amongst us can claim something like this brothers and sisters? How can we implement the some of the profits on the Lamar, I need to send them to the extent that we fall under the categories of these companions of the profits in the long run a US Senator, we look at earthman are the alumni. What was he known for? Why is it that he was granted? Gentlemen? What is it from amongst the lives of these companions that you should be asking yourself throughout this lecture, and you literally you won't get the entire thing? Because like I said, this is the life of 10 different people. But we take some examples to learn from them. Why is it that they were granted agenda

00:20:41--> 00:21:20

or the alarm on the profits on the long run, he was some of them respected him so much. And yet, at the same time, he was so shy in front of earthman, that one time the profits on the long run, he was one of them, he was sitting in his home with the companions with aboubaker. And some of the other companions and earthman walked in, and the advice of the prophets on the law, and he was one of them was exposed. You know, I'm shy to do it in front of you, if I was to lift up my pant leg and be like, this is what happened. But that was the tie of the profits on the long run. He was one of them, it was exposed. And he sat up quickly to cover his thought. Why? Because he was shy. And he

00:21:20--> 00:21:52

said, Why should I not be shy in front of the one that the angels are shy of? Or they're shy in front of the angels are shy in front of Earth, men are the last line. So why should the profits in the long run even send them not be shy in front of him as well? Somehow, not the profits on the line even send them humbles himself, and sits up and covers himself and he's shy in front of one of the other companions, and he's the Prophet. And today we, you know, we walk around and say I'm Muslim, what are you going to do about it?

00:21:54--> 00:22:38

Yes, it's good to be it's good to be proud of your deen. Yes. But don't be proud in an arrogant way. Be proud of your deen. But don't be arrogant about it. Don't boast that I'm Muslim, you're nothing Get out of my way. No, you should have the utmost concern for that person. You should be thinking about this person's future. A non Muslim walks in front of you, you should be more concerned about that non Muslim than your own Muslim brother who walks in front of you the very same time. Why? Because you know that Muslim brother is going to insha Allah to how to continue on praying and worshiping Allah subhana wa sallam go to gentlemen, but one of the missions of the prophets in the

00:22:38--> 00:22:57

long run in the Send them was to educate the non Muslims about Islam about a lot. And if we're not doing that, we just walk in front of them, like, whatever, we're Muslim, you know, you don't talk to me, we're going to Malaysia and that everything's hot out in Malaysia, forget about Singapore. And look for the symbol. No.

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

That's not how we should be.

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

We should be happy to see a non Muslim and say, how are you? Good morning.

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

All of this person's like,

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

talking to me. Yeah, I'm talking to you.

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

Good morning.

00:23:17--> 00:23:39

Good morning as well. break that barrier. break the barrier between the Muslims and the non Muslims. You work amongst them, you live with them, you have friends who are not Muslim, perhaps? Why is it that you are shy to show them Islam, and at the same time, some of you are arrogant in front of them like one Muslim Friday, gotta go man, too bad. You have to work, I'm afraid.

00:23:41--> 00:23:52

We need to be proud of being Muslim. For the sake of a loss of kind of what's ahead of you please Allah, through whatever it is that you do, but don't be arrogant along the way.

00:23:54--> 00:24:18

So as men over the long run, he was from amongst those companions who the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had said that he will be from amongst those who enter gender, as well as men of the long run. He was married to two of the daughters of the prophets in law and English. Can you imagine right now? Who here Okay, let's do this. Who's not married? Raise your hand.

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

We're gonna have an auction. We're getting married.

00:24:23--> 00:24:26

Raise your hand. Who's not married, raise your hand brothers.

00:24:29--> 00:24:33

Raise it high. So your parents can see that you need to get married.

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

Okay.

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

Imagine

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

from amongst you

00:24:42--> 00:24:46

who is looking or ready to get married, raise your hand.

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

I see a father nudging his son and his sons.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

Men take advantage because the other guys sitting next to us like I wish my dad would be nudging me telling me to get

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

amongst you is enough.

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

interested in getting married and looking to get married? Or when I'm going to put you on the spot? The honest?

00:25:07--> 00:25:24

On Will you see you're scared to just raise your head? how scared are you to approach the person's parents who you want to get married to? Now imagine the parents of that person is the confidence on the long run for us. And imagine you want to marry one of the daughters of the profits in the long run.

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

And each one of the companions had gone up to the profits in the long run, even send them asking for their daughter and marriage. And the profits in the long run. You know, send them says no, and Mary's it off to Earth man. Are you or

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

are you from amongst those that can stand up and say, Mom, Dad, I want to get married.

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

Let's go Let's go time.

00:25:47--> 00:25:53

I'm making money. Now I'm working, it's time to get married. And the same thing applies to the sisters, okay? Don't think we're not picking on you.

00:25:54--> 00:26:31

The sisters to win, you need to get married, it's time to get married, tell your parents I need to get married. And parents. Go home tonight and ask your children who are of the age of 18. and above. They don't say 2518. and above, go and ask your children. Do you want to get married, and try to make it easy for them. And remember in your life in your time when you were looking to get married, how difficult it was for you to approach your parents. Think of that time. And remember that your children are going through the exact same thing maybe even worse, because maybe you're making it even harder for them. So go home and ask your children in sha Allah to

00:26:33--> 00:26:42

know the Lord He married off to have the he married two of the daughters of the profits in the long run, he will send them and after they passed away

00:26:44--> 00:27:11

the profits in the long run He will send them said, well lucky if I had another daughter that was not married, I would marry her off to Earth none of the alarm. Now ask yourself if you are that person who could profits in the long run he was sending them with love you so much that he would want his daughter to be married to you. Ask yourself that brothers and sisters. We move on to it. It'll be a long time. Let's take an example from his life.

00:27:12--> 00:27:43

I think it'll be a long time he loved the profits in the Long Island. He was selling them so much, that during the Battle of haibo when they were having difficulties after day one and day two and just having so much difficulties and trying to find a proper flagbearer the profit from the Long Island he was someone calls upon me and gives him the flag. And at the end the profits on the loan where I lady listen to them he says about me

00:27:45--> 00:27:51

that he loves a lot and His messenger and Allah and His Messenger love him.

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

I love Allah and His messenger and Allah and His Messenger love it.

00:28:03--> 00:28:42

How many of us can claim that Allah loves me? Yes, and hamdulillah we can claim that because we are blessed with Islam. Allah definitely loves each and every one of us. But how much does he love us? For those of you that are married and have children you know, your level of love increases and increases and increases? And I always thought you know my wife and I told her you know, one child and now she's like, Don't worry, we'll have to as an I don't know if I can give more love to another child. I give all my love to one How am I supposed to divide it says love doesn't divide it multiplies. Right? Brothers like to use this all the time. So love multiplies.

00:28:44--> 00:29:29

It doesn't get divided. Okay? And this is something which is beautiful to know and understand. Because when Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you and blesses you with Islam. That's great. But what are you doing to earn more love, have a loss of pattern? What do you want more from Allah be greedy, be greedy. There's nothing wrong with being greedy in wanting more love from Allah. That is something that is Helen, go and get it because there's no guarantee as the brother mentioned earlier that we will enter gentlemen. So try and gain trying to accumulate as much love from Allah as you possibly can. Now, before it's too late brothers and sisters, let's move on to an example from the

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

life of unhealthy eating obey the law.

00:29:33--> 00:29:47

Also amongst those 10 companions, and I hope some of you are taking notes. In fact, all of you should be taking notes. This is Singapore, you guys all have some sort of electronic gadget sitting in your pocket, take it out and take notes for later.

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

obey the law. As we said earlier, some of the companions they were the shield they would make themself

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

Have a human shield in front of the profits on a lawnmower I mean,

00:30:04--> 00:30:43

even obey the law and he passed away It is said that he had so many wounds on his body, you could not even see a piece of like untouched flesh, so many wounds on his body. He was known for being the shield of the Prophet, son in law. And he said that he would always jump in front of the Prophet, he would defend him, not defending from others who are coming to attack, he would literally be the shield of the Prophet salon and send them he would stop them from hurting Mohammed send the love on him and send them how many of us would do that. Today, when someone says something bad about the profits in the long run they have some of them are draws an image of the profit, some law do some

00:30:43--> 00:30:54

that we don't like, or, you know, tries to defame Islam or says something negative about the profit, we jump up and retaliate in ways that are absolutely ridiculous.

00:30:55--> 00:31:24

There's no need to go and protest to others in ways that don't make sense. We use this as we'll mention later on, that during the life of these companions, a lot of the examples we get are from battles. And that's because of their time they fought for Islam to spread so that it can come to me and you. But today Islam is here. And we live in countries that facilitate Islam for us. In fact, they tell us you can eat here, it's Helen.

00:31:26--> 00:31:36

They help us in our Islam. Whereas at the time of the Prophet son alone, I need to send them they had to go out there and give everything that they had for the sake of a loss of cannabinoids.

00:31:38--> 00:31:44

So we asked ourselves, how many of us are Abu Bakar? How many of us are on earth man?

00:31:45--> 00:32:01

What are we doing in our life? How are we going to enter Jannah? How are we going to be amongst those companions that enter agenda if we're not going to use wisdom and ask the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with regards to everything that we do.

00:32:04--> 00:33:01

A beautiful example from the life or the CEO of savage and Obi Wan, cos he was from amongst the youngsters that accepted Islam. He was amongst those who were in their teenage years. He was a youth. And he accepted Islam. And he came home one day and his mother knew that he had accepted Islam. And she said one law he, I swear I will not allow civil law here, okay, for those of you that are jotting it down, she says, I swear I will not eat or drink anything, until either I died, or you leave Islam. This was the mother of side that had been abused cos she says I will not eat or drink anything. until either you leave Islam as my son, you have to obey me. Either you leave Islam, or I

00:33:01--> 00:33:39

will die. But I'm not going to, you know, live my life knowing that you're a follower of Mohammed panela for those of you who are new brothers and sisters in Islam, or you're practicing brothers and sisters in Islam, or you're not practicing that much, but you want to and you have a desire, and you're sitting here and come to learn how to benefit and learn. And your family members are not so practicing. And they give you a hard time and you complain about them. Sometimes they you know, it's really rough. It's really difficult. My mom says this, my dad says that they criticize me, I wear hijab, they don't want me to wear hijab, they want me to be modern. They want me to be secular. They

00:33:39--> 00:33:52

want me to advance with technology and be someone who when technology goes up, I go up as well. You know, I'm not old fashioned anymore. Think of the people of the time of the prophets. And a lot of them think of sad.

00:33:54--> 00:34:04

What ends up happening. Syed tells his mother, I will not leave Islam, because the love that I have for Allah is more than the love that I have for you.

00:34:05--> 00:34:46

And his mother says great, I'm not going to eat anything. And days pass. Days go by, and she doesn't eat or drink anything. And sad is like, mother please, please eat something, drink something here, take some water. He's trying to give her stuff. But she won't take it says no, I will leave Islam or I died. That's it. There's no negotiating here. So what he ends up doing is keeps trying he keeps trying and keeps trying. She says no, no, no. He says mother, even if you had 1000 souls, and he would die and then come back and go through the same thing and then die and come back and die and come back and dying for that 1000 times. I still leave this number.

00:34:47--> 00:34:53

And then she stops and she eats and drinks and she submits.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

Because that is where she realized if my son

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

I raised so beautifully is upon something that he believes in so much, then she knew that she would trust her child and his decision. How many of us can do that with our parents? How many of our parents criticize what we do, and we just give in and say hello to my parents, I have to do what they say. My parents said, I can't do this, my parents don't want me to wear hijab. So I'm just not going to and that's it, you leave it at that my parents don't want me to, you know, pray five times a day or they don't want me to pray at home so I just don't pray at home and you just leave it at that you have to go the distance brothers and sisters you have to do what it is that the companions

00:35:40--> 00:35:49

of the Prophet SAW in the long run to send them did in order to please Allah subhana wa tada one of the most beautiful examples, I'm going to

00:35:51--> 00:35:52

I'm going to put this on because it's kind of cold

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

ACS blowing on my head.

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

I'm going bolts is not much here to protect me from the cold.

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

So my wife says at least

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

okay.

00:36:09--> 00:36:16

So, who are they that admitted job was one of the or the 10th companion that is mentioned in the Hadith.

00:36:19--> 00:36:48

You know, two very beautiful stories that we get from from his life. During the Battle of the prophets of Allah Allah He will send them he was he was hurt, he was injured You know, he got hit. And a go Aveda in Ninja blah. He kept seeing the profits on the long running and some of them getting injured and he would always run over and help. And there was one time when the profits in the long run even some of them took a really heavy blow. You know, he really got hit.

00:36:49--> 00:37:03

An Abu Bakar says, I saw the profits on the lawn, he will seldom get hit and I began to run. I began to run Sorry, I ran over to the profits in the long run, even send them but before I could get there, Aveda had reached him.

00:37:04--> 00:37:43

And he says I want to ask them a bucket Please let me attend to the wounds of the profits in the long run in the seminar. So he says okay, go ahead, he gave him his chance. So overlaid over the long run, he looks at the profits on the line. I mean, some of them and his his shield or his helmet, you could say it was made of chains from the narration say that the chains had pierced, he was hit so hard that the chains pierced into his forehead into his temples. So I'm saying to his cheek, so it's in this area, basically on the sides of his face, we can try and assume at the time, you know, they had maybe those helmets that had a piece coming down to protect their temples if they

00:37:43--> 00:37:56

got a blow. But those pieces went into the head of the prophets on the lower it was similar. They pierced his his skull. So our VEDA he reaches down at the head of the prophets on the long rally, he was sullen. And he goes

00:37:59--> 00:38:11

and he rips that chain or that linkage from the helmet of the profits on the line and out of his head, he prise it out with his teeth. And in the process, he loses his two upper teeth.

00:38:13--> 00:38:19

Now how many of us, if our two upper teeth came out right there and then be like,

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

Oh,

00:38:23--> 00:38:28

I will obey that and then jump off, looked at the profits on the long run, it was on them and the job was not done.

00:38:30--> 00:38:43

The left side or the other side was still pierced into the head of the profits of the long running us seller. So he reaches down and he grabs the head of the profits on the lottery instead of after losing two teeth. He grabs the head of the Prophet solonius

00:38:45--> 00:38:53

and rips out the other side that was in the head of the profits on the monetary side of them. And when the piece comes out, his two bottom teeth come out as well.

00:38:54--> 00:38:56

He loses his four front teeth.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

And then they continued.

00:39:01--> 00:39:21

They just continued. That was their dedication towards showing their love to a loss of data for what they believed in. This is what we believe in. This is what we're striving for. We are going to go the distance it hurts me That's great. It doesn't hurt me physically because I don't feel that my emotion is too strong.

00:39:22--> 00:39:42

Not that, you know we start thinking Oh, people are doing weird crazy things. You know, their minds are floating knowing their Eman was so strong. They didn't need to do any sort of hallucination or anything. It was natural that this was what was needed for the sake of me and new having Islam. They did it.

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

So the question is how many of us can do something like that?

00:39:48--> 00:39:53

When we bite into something that's, you know, Willy Wonka's gobstopper jawbreaker

00:39:54--> 00:39:57

never eating those candies again. You know,

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

kind of love the story.

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

Other VEDA continues.

00:40:02--> 00:40:10

Another example that I took from his life. And you know, he's one of the companions who just went the distance. And for me, this is amazing.

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

During the Battle of butter

00:40:14--> 00:40:51

adore VEDA was so into the battle, he really wanted to get in there, you know, and he jumped into that battle like no other companion and the machine of the price they saw him and they were like, you know what, let's just stay away from this guy. He looks, he's out of control. You know, he's, I don't want to face him. You know, imagine there's a bunch of people here and one of you is like, no, always talkative and like someone who's gonna stand up and say, You don't know what you're talking about. You know, everyone wants to avoid that person. Find a hiding place, avoid that person. So other Aveda jumps into that battlefield during the Battle of butter, and he's like, giving it all

00:40:51--> 00:41:22

he's got, and the mystery kina the price, they're avoiding him, they don't want to face him, and he's going and facing everybody. But one person from amongst the price is trying to get in the face of our beta. One of the machine is trying to take on our VEDA, he wants to challenge him. And other Aveda notices him out of the corner of his eye, and he tries to avoid him as well. As our beta notices this person wants to challenge them. So he's trying to avoid that person.

00:41:23--> 00:41:59

Along those why he's trying to avoid him. Maybe it's because as we know, the companions, they would not want to fight if it became personal. You know, when something became personal, it no longer was done for the sake of Allah, so they would back off. So when someone was seen like that, they would usually back off. So he backed off from this person. And he turned and he went, and he fought in the battlefield. And this person now came around and was in front of him again, trying to challenge him. So our beta turned again and went off, and he started fighting on this side. And then that person came in front of him again, and wanted to challenge him. So the person was really intimidating,

00:41:59--> 00:42:26

unmotivated, and they're just locked out of the line. And he was really testing him in this battlefield. So our beta as he was fighting full swing, he approached this person of the place of the machine, he went up to him, and with one blow of his sword, he knocked him right in the head, and he fell down to the ground, and he died instantly, he was dead. That was our VEDA. And when he looked down, he realized that was his own father.

00:42:28--> 00:42:35

That was his own father, that was fighting against him, trying to take out his own son,

00:42:36--> 00:42:41

how much they wanted to stop the spread of Islam from reaching you. And if

00:42:43--> 00:42:49

they wanted to stop the message of Mohammed some La Liga, send them from coming to me and you

00:42:50--> 00:43:01

so much so that they were ready to kill their own children. Yet the muslimeen are ready to kill or to fight against anyone, even if it was their own parents.

00:43:04--> 00:43:09

So brothers and sisters, we take some examples, as we just did from the lives of these companions.

00:43:11--> 00:43:51

And I don't want you to think in no way shape or form, am I saying that we need to fight because today, we don't live in a time where we have to go and fight, to be honest with you, with all due respect to people in many other countries that are going through hardships, they're going through those hardships, because they are the people that a lot chose to put through that hardship. This is the plan of a loss and kind of what to have that and until the muslimeen are not uniting themselves. With the love of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana, they're not uniting themselves and making Doohan asking a loss of Hannah Montana for help those muslimeen that are going through those hardships will

00:43:51--> 00:44:12

continue to go through those hardships. And us going and fighting as some people think is going to solve things, it's not going to solve anything, because our econ is in no way shape or form near the level of the amount of those companions. So going and fighting just means Okay, there's no point you go there and nothing's gonna happen.

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

You have to put your trust in a loss of credibility.

00:44:18--> 00:44:27

And some of the other No, they say that those people that are suffering in different parts of the world from amongst them listening in as well as non Muslims.

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

A lot put them in that situation because they were capable of dealing with that. I asked friends of mine who have met not friends but people have come across from Palestine and from other parts of the world where they're going through hardships and I asked them you know, how's things how's that what's going on? I have this many children. You can still have children all this chaos is going around outside of your you know, your broken up shack, your broken home that's made of pieces of bricks, and you can still have happiness.

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

Your house Yeah, from dinner, we can have happiness, family, we do things as a family. Ask each and every one of yourselves ask your own self. If I was to just take you right now and place you in the middle of you know the, the the chaos in Palestine or the chaos in Syria, those parts of the world, would you be able to withstand What's going on?

00:45:23--> 00:45:36

Are you a person who's capable of going through the hardships that they're going through? No water, forget about water, there's no pipes, everything's destroyed. You don't have water? You don't have the luxuries that you have. There's no phone to say, Mom, Dad, what's going on? No, nothing.

00:45:37--> 00:46:20

Just take you and put you there. There's no way we can do that. Maybe from amongst us, there are some. But Allah subhanho wa Taala put us in a place that here we are. We try and educate ourselves. We use this thing that's in our head. Wisdom spread Islam, in a wise and good and respectable way, the way that the prophets in the long run to send them did when they were not in the battlefield. We always think of Islam or go and spread a stone, you know, go and fight for Islam. No, that's not the spreading of Islam. When we look at the the methods of download the methods that the prophet SAW the Learning Center, as well as the companions used to spread Islam to others, it was so beautiful,

00:46:21--> 00:46:31

really beautiful, like the best manners and the best etiquettes that you can possibly find in any human being. The prophets in the long run as salaam had that anymore.

00:46:32--> 00:47:12

And that's how we need to be. That's how we have to spread a snowman. That's how we need to be as Muslims, brothers and sisters living in this country. We don't want to retaliate. Rather, we want to show a good example. We are Muslim. Yes. But we're not as the world claims and says that we're dangerous people. No, we're not dangerous. And I use the example yesterday, when I was in the airport, and the officer was asking me questions, I said, unhappy. Thank you very much. This is what, thank you. I'm making your day miserable. I'm like, Yeah, but you're helping me, man. Because you're helping the people in the Muslims and the non Muslims of Singapore to be safe. And that's all

00:47:12--> 00:47:32

them I do the exact same thing in any country I go to, when they start asking me questions, I thank them after Why? Because you're doing your job, at least I know that someone is safe. And a lot of the time those people they don't want to do that. But that's their job. So why should we have this negative view or negative impression of those people, this is something they're doing for your safety.

00:47:34--> 00:47:40

Imagine that was not being done, and anyone can bring anything into your country.

00:47:42--> 00:48:01

It wouldn't be the same. So we thank Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for the things that we have the bounties and the blessings that we go through in sha Allah data. Lastly, I'm reminded each and every one of us to educate our children, educate your children, educate your families, educate them, and give them the best that you possibly can.

00:48:02--> 00:48:39

Give them the best that you possibly can. If you're going to spend money on anything, spend it on your family. That is the best place you can spend family that sort of your money or your wealth or your time as your family. The profits in the long run even though some of them said that the best of Southern is one that is given to your family members. So don't look too far. Don't think we have to help others when your own family members are struggling, help your family members, give them some sort of employment, invest something for them. Let them create you know, generate a type of income that they can give back to someone else's poor. Be the example for others be the example for your

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

children. Let your children be the example for their friends and family members when they grow up. This is something that is very important brothers and sisters we need to do we also need to you know I wrote down a few other things from the lives of the prophets and the llama sorry, the length of the process and learning from them as well as the lives of the companions that were around him.

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

Some are long running the Send them they would stay in shape, physical shape. How many of us here does exercise regularly? Raise your hand.

00:49:11--> 00:49:30

I know in Southeast Asia, it's common to do exercise, badminton is exercise. Okay. And you know, you see only a few hands went up and that's because we're not doing what we're supposed to be doing. A lot minerals but we play them in a lie. You know what we know?

00:49:31--> 00:50:00

That believer, a Muslim, a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala who is strong, physically strong mentally strong. Eman is strong, is better and more beloved in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala than one that is poor and weak. So don't try and limit yourselves. go the distance. You're tired. Do some exercise still. dedicate some time. Try and influence

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

meant things into your life that have gone stagnant. You know, we live this life. And you know, this is something I learned about Singaporeans today when I was talking to some of the brothers, and observing what goes on, that life sometimes can become stagnant. Because you go to work, you come home, everything's expensive, I gotta pay this, you know, er, l and this tax and all these things. It's like, man, I can drive my car, my license plates are red. It's like 6pm I can't take the car. You know?

00:50:29--> 00:50:57

It life becomes stagnant. So Make life beautiful again for yourselves. go jogging. Be like, I can't take the car out big deal. I'm gonna put on my Nike kicks, man, I'm gonna go run around the block or something, you know, do some exercise with the family. I saw one of the brothers is telling me you know, they go to the park and they ride bicycles with the family is great. You know, do something with your family members, and, and don't make your life become stagnant. Also.

00:51:00--> 00:51:01

Lastly, before I finish,

00:51:03--> 00:51:47

these companions were devoted to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only with their tongues, but they were devoted to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with their entire life. their entire life was to please Allah subhanho wa Taala through the methods shown to them by the prophets on Lahore, and he was one of them. So whenever someone says something about Islam, don't just retaliate with your tongue, because maybe you're not being or behaving the way that we shouldn't be. So be the proper Muslim. Be the example that when you walk, everyone says, Wow, look at that person. I want to be like him. Okay, that is the type of person that we need to be brothers

00:51:47--> 00:51:55

and sisters, and I'll end there inshallah Tada, think we're going to do a q&a session for a little bit. I'm freezing cold. So I'm going to move away from this podium now.

00:52:12--> 00:52:24

We will begin our q&a session. Now you have any questions, please do raise your hand and we'll collect the questions. If you have not read the novel questions, you can still pass some pencils and paper.

00:52:35--> 00:52:44

Question is, is how do we respond to a certain group of Muslims when they say that some of these 10 companions are captured and worth cursing, just leave them alone.

00:52:53--> 00:53:09

Just leave them alone. If you have nothing good to say the prophets on the line, someone said, if you have nothing good to think, just stay quiet. Don't say anything good. Sort of don't say anything bad. So if you get upset, a lot of the times when people sit or these questions

00:53:13--> 00:53:54

a lot of the time when people you know, say something negative or something we don't like, we get angry, we turn red, we start to retaliate. We get furious and wants to just go How can you say that? No, no, it's not true. If you don't have anything to say. And as the question is showing, you obviously don't know what to say, don't say anything, because what you say may not help that person. It's only good to harm them and say, you see, look, what did I tell you? These people who claim they know what they're talking about, okay, how to behave, okay? how they react, and at the same time, it's harming you. Because you may say something that is not good as well. So the best thing to do

00:53:54--> 00:54:39

stay quiet. And if you want to say something to them, you just quote the heartbeat to them and say the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned this already. And you quote the address that I quoted you at the beginning of this lecture, and you did your job, that's your job. It is not your job as someone who does not know too much about Islam, or sorry, does not know how to deal with that specific situation with regards to Islam. It's not your job to go and try and fight that person. Like meaning verbal, right? So don't take it upon yourself to get into a corner that you can't get yourself out. Just stay quiet. That's the best thing to do. And

00:54:45--> 00:54:56

what is the ruling on taking a non Muslim to the mustard to learn about this? Hello, there's nothing wrong with bringing a non Muslim into the mustard. In fact, when you look at the mustard of the Prophet

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

mustard another week, that is still right.

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

Today, okay, the prophets of the law My name is Sullivan used to bring non Muslims in. He used to keep people that they, you know, captured from other battles, for example, prisoners of war. They used to keep people who were injured, you know, in the masjid. Why? Because that is the closest place that their hearts can connect with Allah. So why would you stop someone from coming to the masjid? And this is something that we see, you know, in North America, a lot of our interns that come from, you know, other countries, they don't understand that a non Muslim comes to the mustard that is a blessing. This non Muslim just walked into the mosque. And why are you stopping them from

00:55:42--> 00:55:46

coming in? Sadly, we have females who turn them away

00:55:48--> 00:56:31

in the corner, just don't come into the masjid, you know, non Muslims are not clean, don't come in here is a clean place. No, you want as I said earlier, you want the best for that person. You always should be looking out for mankind or humankind, look out for the welfare of others, help humanity, Muslim or non Muslim. Because when you help non Muslims, you're setting an example, that you're not limiting your health to only listeners, we're helping non Muslims as well, which is a good example and the example of the prophets on some of them as well as the use to help those and feed those that were not Muslim as well. And that in itself is a means of entering agenda. entering Islam in short

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

and long.

00:56:36--> 00:56:43

How to strengthen Eman and taqwa in our children, this is a topic.

00:56:44--> 00:57:26

This is like maybe if you want to do another lecture series, this could be a topic on the top, how do we strengthen the humanity of our children, the first thing you need to do is strengthen your own self or parent. That is the very first thing. When you're emotionally strong. Your child learns from everything you see from you. They don't need to, you know, learn from your words, they learn from your actions, actions speak louder than words. And that is how we teach your children. You know, I had a parent who came to me once and he said, I was teaching in the musters as 62 children in my class. This was almost 10 years ago, 62 children in my class, and the parent comes to me the father,

00:57:26--> 00:57:30

he says, you know, when you get some time to teach my son how to make

00:57:32--> 00:57:32

10 minutes.

00:57:34--> 00:57:49

I have 62 children here. I generally teach them how to meet with you as a class. But if you see that your child doesn't know how to do, why don't you just take your child with you into the bathroom, when you make them do at home to pray your prayers.

00:57:51--> 00:57:54

Your child will see what you're doing, and learn how to make

00:57:55--> 00:58:00

you pray, maybe one, if anything, once Allah in the masjid a day.

00:58:01--> 00:58:42

And the other four you probably pray at home, or one at work. So three at home, your child should be able to see you make. So be the example for your children. Don't think this is something wrong that a lot of parents make a mistake. They think that they have to educate their children about Islam, but their actions and their own Eman and their own taqwa doesn't need to be increased, it can just remain where it is. Now. The more you increase yours, the more your children's will be increased. The more you force it upon your children and do nothing. The more your children will say. One day they will turn to you and say, Mom that you don't do the things that you want me to do. So I'm not

00:58:42--> 00:59:09

doing them. I'm out of here, and they just walk out. And this is what we see in North America. That the children just retaliation. Forget it. You're not doing it yourself. When you tell me not to smoke, the smoke. You tell me to pray, but you don't even pray. You send me to the mustard for unpress I never once you open the Quran. What's going on? How do you want the children to learn they spend their time with you. They don't spend their time with the teacher.

00:59:10--> 00:59:20

They probably spend two or three minutes in front of their teacher in the mustard if they go to mustard class. And that's it. The teacher is busy with all the other students they don't have time for your child.

00:59:21--> 00:59:25

So educate your children yourselves by educating yourself first.

00:59:32--> 00:59:41

My mother does not offer salah and has not done so for many years now advised her several times already. But it feels she

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

gets really annoyed when I advise her repeatedly. I do not want to upset her for fear of law. Do I just let her beat or keep advising her even though she might get upset with me. I don't advise her in a way that's going to upset her. This is obviously written by a sister. don't advise

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

So in a way, that's good, actually, I shouldn't say that because one time I made a mistake, and it's written by credit. And

01:00:10--> 01:00:16

usually the handwriting looks male or feminine. We have gender specific standard.

01:00:18--> 01:00:56

You know, don't advise people in a way that's going to offend them. The profits on the money, send them never advise people in a way that offended them. Unless it came to that point, where, you know, it was like, Look Enough is enough. Okay, but especially when dealing with parents, he was to the point, but in a way that they can understand and act of marzipan without a need to add to a must handle data to give you wisdom in your words. A lot of the time, we want to get out to others. We want to advise others, we walk around like, you know, radar on

01:00:57--> 01:01:02

you did this wrong, you did that wrong. Don't do this. Don't do that. You can't do long distance short.

01:01:04--> 01:01:50

Answer there, don't do this. We walk around with that all the time, some of us, but we never turn to a lot of say, Oh Allah, maybe there's a mistake in me. Maybe there's a problem with me. Maybe what I'm saying is not being received by the others. So Allah, please put wisdom in my words, put Baraka and blessings in what I've saved, and how I behave and what I do, because maybe the problem is not with all those other people, maybe the problems with me, so Oh, Allah, please guide me. Please help me please increase my Eman And grant me the wisdom of speaking properly, so that people take what I say and not be what I advise them.

01:01:55--> 01:02:36

How do I know? If I'm Exceeding my limit increasing amongst messenger, you know that you're exceeding the limits in praising the prophets of Allah. Send them when you do something that the profits of the long run he or send them himself did not do? Nor did the companions do? And they were not advised to do? nor did they advise others to do. It's that simple. If you're doing something that the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim didn't do, his companions in you, he didn't advise them to do it and they didn't advise others to do, then you're doing something wrong. Okay. We don't need to praise the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in ways that he did not let the companions do or the companions

01:02:36--> 01:02:38

did not do that themselves.

01:02:52--> 01:02:58

Someone wants us to explain the Hadith where the prophet SAW. He was sending them said

01:03:04--> 01:03:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that the best amongst you are those who are best to their families, and I am the best amongst you, towards my families. Okay, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that the best of you is the one that is best to your family. And if you want to know how to be the best person to your family, take me as the example. That's what the prophet some longer some of the same. Take him as the example. Look at him, how he dealt with his family members, how he was with them. You know, a lot of the time people say, okay, islamically it's okay to you know, spank your child, if you don't do anything. Right, we can do

01:03:45--> 01:04:25

that. This is what people say. They say it's okay. I can do that. You know, as a parent. Okay, great. Right. What's your point? That's what I asked them, What's your point? So you just kind of use the excuses. You can spank your children, they do something wrong, spank them. That's your way of dealing with your own anger and frustration. You take it out on your children, but did the profits in the long run and sell them themselves ever spank or hit any of the children know, he picked them up and held them close to him. You want your children to listen to you and obey you and do what you want. Pick them up and hold them close to you. When they get older and you're not you

01:04:25--> 01:04:39

know, you're shy to hold them or hug them. Bring them close to you in ways that they want to be close to you. They play video games, you know, they like video games, we like school, teach me how to play video games. Sit down and play get it into your children.

01:04:41--> 01:04:59

There's nothing wrong with that. If that's what your children are doing today. Then be close to them. Bring them close to you. Do it is that your children will feel comfortable with you make your children make your your parents make your brothers and your sisters and your husband and your wife, best friends to you as well.

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

You know what, when we got married, I said, I want you to be my best friend.

01:05:06--> 01:05:09

And that's the way we live. We're best friends. And he didn't say,

01:05:10--> 01:05:14

I don't think anybody else in the world I call my wife.

01:05:15--> 01:05:16

That's how you need to be.

01:05:23--> 01:05:35

Santa Monica for learning CR, K to learn CR the history of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then life and so on and so forth. What books do you recommend us to read in Arabic as well as in English?

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

media?

01:05:46--> 01:05:48

He didn't read the question is definitely not his hand.

01:05:50--> 01:05:52

And nowhere on this paper, let me check the back.

01:05:55--> 01:05:58

Media so I'm not I'm not getting paid commission.

01:05:59--> 01:06:16

But I was at the bookstore today. On one side, you have English books on the other side of the hall, you have two different outlets for you. And the bookstore has books in it that can go and check out the bookstore, you'll see a little tag that says Sierra, right.

01:06:17--> 01:06:24

remember seeing it today, those books that are there. Choose one, whatever language it is that you read, and read that

01:06:26--> 01:06:55

that's what's available to you at dinner and look through it. Usually we scan bookshelves, trust me, students whose for the brothers that Medina and you know, you pick up the book, check it out and put it down book right next to it, take it off, put it back book right next to like you go through every single book. Every day, you're going to the bookstore just to look through one shelf next day, come over to the next shop. So I scan through the bookshelves, the sound media and the leather awesome books. In fact, some of them I want to buy but I think Singaporean dollars more expensive, so by

01:07:08--> 01:07:11

another person asks, I'm living with cousins who don't pray.

01:07:14--> 01:07:16

And I am

01:07:17--> 01:07:23

in charge of my colleagues at work. am I responsible for

01:07:26--> 01:07:28

for the appraisers, and yeah, Islamic.

01:07:29--> 01:08:08

Like you have to you don't read the line and read up, down, up down. And some are responsible for their prayers and other standard practices as well. So this is you're living with your cousins, and you work with colleagues who are Muslim. So when it comes to Muslims, yes, you are responsible for their prayers and practices as well in the sense that you're responsible and advising them responsible to show them the right way. Teach them what they should be doing, and show them that. That's what you should do. You know, a lot of the time people need an example. They don't know how to ask their boss to give them time off for drama. Is that something that's common here? Everyone is

01:08:08--> 01:08:11

allowed to go for drama? Is there a law like that?

01:08:12--> 01:08:22

I see some people saying yes. And others saying no. Is it a law? It's not. In Canada, it is. In Canada, Muslims by law, they're allowed to go for Juma

01:08:23--> 01:09:04

and that Allah May Allah bless those brothers and sisters of you know, 20 3040 years ago who worked hard, and wrote letters to the government saying we need that we need your help, wrote letters to the government saying we need your help, because our employers don't understand that we need to go for jumar You know, this is something that's upon us and we don't mind giving up our lunch time. We don't mind you know, deducting the time that we're away from our salaries. Now, they don't even need to deduct that time. It's just you get paid for it. You have that time, listen from go go. And also, it's your responsibility to educate them and teach them and don't pressure them. If they're Muslim,

01:09:04--> 01:09:07

they know they have to do it. Okay, they're not children.

01:09:12--> 01:09:13

Is it okay?

01:09:35--> 01:09:40

Like, fighting and interesting terms?

01:09:42--> 01:09:55

Through dear companions, or Sahaba Mashallah. One is into Sikhism and the other is Sophie manage always at loggerheads. And I read always at loggerheads and thinking, that's a restaurant

01:10:02--> 01:10:07

potterheads until they don't talk to each other, what should I do to help?

01:10:09--> 01:10:16

You can try to help the two of them individually. Like if the two of them don't get along great, what's what's the problem?

01:10:18--> 01:10:22

Okay, maybe they don't like each other, but they like you, and you let them

01:10:23--> 01:10:28

try and help them individually. If you know, and you need to help these two people,

01:10:31--> 01:10:48

go and talk to them individually, it's not your job to go. And you know, if two people are not getting along, you just remind them and that's it. Don't, don't make yourself hated by the three of them, by the two of them as well. But if they like you, and they talk to you, that's good, be their friend, talk to them, and try and help them in their game.

01:10:50--> 01:10:51

And don't take them to that restaurant.

01:10:56--> 01:11:00

Another person is asking is photography allowed?

01:11:02--> 01:11:36

I don't think anyone in Singapore or Southeast Asia these days has issues with photography, neither and 72. That issues of photography, the matter of photography has been researched by the scholars who traditionally have about 10 years ago, they would say that no photography is not allowed. In fact, when I went to Saudi cell phones was very new. And my second year in Medina, I remember this was like 2000, say, around 2003 2004. If you had a, if you had a camera phone, right? Remember your camera phone, you can bring into countries, they

01:11:38--> 01:11:43

can bring the camera phone into the country. And at that time, it was like really bad quality anyways, who wants to take a picture.

01:11:44--> 01:12:21

But the scholars looked into the matter of photography. And photography is like a mirror image. It's not like drawing an image of someone that's trying to recreate the creation of a law, it's just taking a mirror image of what is already created there for majority of the scholars a lot, if you're of the opinion that it is not allowed and disliked. And that's good. I know many of the unmanufactured. at one of our one of our teachers, he's still up until today, he doesn't like people taking his picture. And if you see people taking pictures or recording, he just puts his head down pulls the start forward. And

01:12:22--> 01:12:37

that's his own personal preference. And that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that sometimes people use your picture in a negative way. Easily picture including places like you know that you don't want your picture to be put. So I mean, that could be a personal thing as well.

01:12:40--> 01:12:43

Anything else? Okay, please elaborate on these two. So have a

01:12:45--> 01:13:05

shall I'm going to write this course. And you'll be able to attend my course, if we were to sit here and elaborate all the 10 companions that were mentioned, this heavy would go on and on and on. Okay, so we soon will elaborate on this. And you can come to Kayla. We'll go to JP and teach the course. So you can cross the border. And that way, it's a lot easier.

01:13:09--> 01:13:18

What books do you recommend for children about reading the 10 to have a guaranteed gender equal sign and media collection?

01:13:27--> 01:13:58

I don't think there's any specific book written about the 10 companions specifically. But there are books of the companions of the Prophet son, Linus, and they are usually the first ones mentioned. Usually, they're the most important ones, or the most talked about, because they're guaranteed genda. So I was like, what do they do? What did they do in their life that they get done? I want to do that too. You know, I want to be like the amount of learn from their example. So many of the books have seen or

01:14:00--> 01:14:08

show examples or biographies of the life of these companions. Those are the books that you can read. And you can find them with our dear brother.

01:14:15--> 01:14:16

From what I see.

01:14:23--> 01:14:26

Yeah, this is pretty much what can parents do to inculcate

01:14:29--> 01:14:59

or basically encourage their children to love the profits of love the profits and lifestyle of yourself and your children will love what you're doing. Your children love you, they follow you, they want to imitate you. For those of you that have children, just remember when your child was like, growing up between the ages of one and two, and every single thing that they saw you do they wanted to do as well. Everything they do they want to do. My wife, she takes her phone, and she goes like this, you know, so

01:15:00--> 01:15:00

Like,

01:15:01--> 01:15:04

go like that. And my daughter will take my wife's phone and go like this to

01:15:07--> 01:15:08

copy mom.

01:15:10--> 01:15:36

And my wife will go like, Oh, she's writing me a text message to push there, and then push there, and then type, and then push here. And when she pushes a field puts the phone down. So my daughter said, Okay, my daughter, she she doesn't speak, it takes the phone, she pushes their wishes here, presses a few letters, and then presses a button in the bottom right corner button. And then I get this text messages like random letters and numbers.

01:15:39--> 01:15:50

But that's an example. You need to look at these. These are all signs of a muscle panel, that is greatness. a text message that you receive, like that from your child is a sign of the greatness of a lot.

01:15:51--> 01:16:18

A lot of us we don't think of it that way. But that's the greatness of a mother who gave that child the ability to learn from watching you. So be the example that you want your child to be. You want your child to be a half with or half without. Sit down and read the Quran and let them see reading. You want your children to pray when it's time to pray, don't sleep to wake up and

01:16:20--> 01:16:21

wake up and crystal

01:16:23--> 01:16:25

is that you call yours that only Malaysia

01:16:27--> 01:16:29

be the example that you want your children to be.

01:16:36--> 01:16:47

This is not a question but rather a request, could you kindly drive for our brothers and sisters who are facing difficult times in the countries in other countries and

01:16:48--> 01:16:49

perhaps in the closing which is

01:16:53--> 01:16:57

something that we can add to it. This basically brings us to the end of the

01:16:59--> 01:17:00

Montana

01:17:01--> 01:17:21

and the grant each and every one of us the knowledge of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well as the knowledge that is found within the last panel with you. Each one of you and your children and your brothers and your sisters and your mother's and your father's and your relatives. Those that are alive, may have lost

01:17:22--> 01:17:28

each and every one of them as well as in my family, pious Muslims who believe and

01:17:29--> 01:17:50

strive towards living a beautiful life. As an example for others. That is not something that is beautiful and not something that is bad. May Allah protect each and every one of you and correct Islam and taqwa to each and every one of your family members, whether they're Muslim and if they're not listening their loss of habitat, bring them into Islam.

01:17:51--> 01:18:02

with Allah protect them, and save those that are being killed in other countries, no loss of habitat, help them and bring them out of that struggle through mine and your

01:18:03--> 01:18:22

data. Please do not forget them in your draft. They are loss of habitat and bless us and Gemini. Thank you does that come along? And before I finish, I would like to thank the brothers and the sisters who attended, as well as those who put in their time and efforts and money and so on and so forth to bring me from KL to Singapore.

01:18:24--> 01:18:24

Bless you.

01:18:32--> 01:18:35

Measure and gain some takeaways from the lions.

01:18:37--> 01:18:39

A tomato

01:18:47--> 01:18:48

used to grow

01:18:55--> 01:18:56

once again
