Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah where he was like me he woman why that my bad brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
hamdulillah. We're beginning this series, which is a new, a new set of halaqa or halaqaat, that we'll go through in sha Allah to Allah. And as brother Asad mentioned, we are going to be covering the book a double modified prophetic manners and ethics, lessons and morals that we learn from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well as the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this book itself is put together by a mountable hottie. He is also the well known author of the cyan mcquoddy right agenda is the collection of authentic Hadeeth put together by one of the most sophisticated
graders or authenticators of Hades, if we could say someone who was very picky and very particular in his methodology of grading Heidi, at the same time, someone who is extremely, extremely well gifted by Allah subhana wa attallah with memory. So his memory was so powerful to the extent that sometimes when he would memorize Hadeeth, he would just have to look at it or just have to hear it once. And that was the end of it. And he would be able to be tested and he was tested. He left to, to study to seek knowledge when you know, he grew up as a young person. His father passed away when he was young, and it was his mother that actually pushed him encouraged him to study Islam and to
seek this knowledge. Now, he was someone who lived at the early stages of Islam, the early stages of the home of Mohammed Salah hardy who was sent him he was born in the year 194. After the hidden of the prophets, Allah Almighty He was sent them and he left home when he was 16 years old. He left home when he was 16 years old to go and seek knowledge to study Hadith to acquire Hadith, etc. And even the Buhari along his way, his travels and you know, over the years, some of the people thought that you know what, let's test him. Let's see if he's really email on Bahai. Right. So let's see if he's really as good as he claims to be or as people claim he is. So it came to a point in time where
he was tested with 100 Hadeeth. So he was going to be tested with 100 Hadith. And those Hadith, this, the the people of the town had mixed and matched the snad and the narrator's of the Hadith, and the wordings of the Hadith and so on and so forth. So they completely mix them up as though you take 100 Hadith, separate the chains of narration, separate the people who narrated them, and so on and so forth, throw it all into a big hat and mix it all up and tell him about it. Okay, now, let me tell you this heavy and they start off with a bogus narrator, not really a bogus narrator, but someone who didn't really married that had teeth. And then they tell this chain of Hadith or chain
of narrations to him, or narrators, we should say, and then he, you know, is told the actual material of the Hadith, the wording of the Hadith, and so on and so forth. And the moment Buhari listens to all 100 of them. And then he goes back to the beginning of the first one. And he says, okay, ask for this one, this is a mistake that you made. And this is the wording and it should be like this, and like that, and so on and so forth. Number two, as for this Hadeeth, it should be like this, this person is not that person, you mix the chain of narration here, and so on and so forth. So he memorized their mistakes as well, or their test. And then he corrected them one by one. Now,
that was the moment behind that was someone who was well gifted by loss of Hannibal attallah had memory that was extremely powerful. And he could, you know, not only be tested, but test others while being tested. Right. We'll take some questions afterward. Shut up.
Okay, explain what have you this.
Also is net. Okay, good. And this is very important because it's an introductory class or introduction to the course. So we'll go over some of these terms. For those who don't know what a hadith is. Hadees is either the words of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. So for example, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the malerman, vignette, right, and he continues with just taking a short portion of it. So those are the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we look at that, and we say this is a Hadeeth Hadees. If we were to translate it from Arabic to English literally means
You know, wordings, sayings, traditions. And that's why Hadith itself is not only the words of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's also things that he may have done. So the way that he entered the masjid is reported and documented in Hadeeth. The things that he liked to eat were also documented in Hadeeth. He didn't necessarily have to save that, that oh, you know, I like to drink water, right. But the fact that he would constantly drink it, or he would show the fact showed love or desire for something, a type of food, a type of drink, maybe a type of clothing, those were documented in handy. So traditions, narrations, also things that he may have disliked. So
for example, in the profits of a lot of it, he was selling was served Bob, right, which is a type of Lizard Lizard that is well known in the Arabian Peninsula usually tends to be a little bit longer, not the small geckos a little bit longer, which is also highlighted to eat. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was one serve that, right and he was with some of the other companions that believe Khalid, even while he was with him, and when they were served this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed the plate or the tray over to the companions, and allowed them to eat it. But he didn't eat it himself, thus showing us that he didn't really like it or didn't have a desire
to eat that without saying anything bad about the food. But we learned from that, that it is also helpful to eat it because he gave it to the other companions. The fact that he gave it to the companions means that it's helpful to eat otherwise, if he was home, he wouldn't give it to them. Right. So that, you know, gives us a small explanation as to what Hadees is. It's not it's not it is Arabic or sonet, or chain, right, a chain of narrations. So if we look at a simple Hadith, of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, it mentions names, names of narrators, that can sometimes go all the way up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So maybe he said that, or he
did something. So these scholars will go from one person to another person to another person in the chain of narration, people who actually said this. So for example, I'm telling you this today, let's say I teach you, one plus one equals two, you go home and you say dode said one plus one equals two. And you teach that to your brother, and your brother goes to your sister and says, Don't said, No, our brother said that dode said that one plus one equals two. And then your sister goes and tells you a mother. And so your mother learns it. And she says, My daughter said that my son said that Dowd said that one plus one equals two. So that is a chain of narration. Okay? make sense. So we
have the narrator's that are within those chains, right. And now in this book is very important to point out that in this book, for those of you that are real students of knowledge, this is where the test comes in. Either you will learn the Hadith, or you will learn the narrations from the Sahaba. But you need to differentiate between them. And we will explain this, and this is why some people are scared to teach this book. There's nothing wrong with it. Hadees, and its narrations from the companions of the llama. But sometimes people are scared to teach us book because they get confused. Who narrated this Who said it? Was it the prophet or was it? Was it a companion? And we will make it
absolutely clear, we will say in every single Hadith or every single text that we cover, who actually said this? Was this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or was it one of the companions of the Levant.
And there's differences with regards to the chains of narrations. And I don't want to get too much into it. But we'll focus on two specifically in Montana. There is the chain of narration known as mud for this chain metaphor, means that the narrator's the people that said it, so for example, like we said, dode said, and then the son and then the daughter, and then the mother, right, it goes all the way back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that chain of narration is metaphor, it goes right to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is in this book as well. We also have in this book, like you said, some of the teachings or some of the lessons the learnings that we get
from the Sahaba, which is not necessarily something that came from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, but it is what they learned from being around Muhammad Sallallahu barely knew ascended. So they learned these things because they spent a lot of time with him. Right, as we'll see in in the very first
You know, a few hobbies that we take or narrations that we take, we will see that some are from the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam statements and some aren't, some are from the companions. Right? So that type that goes up to, you know the chain of narration that goes up to us a hobby, but doesn't go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is known as mo poof, right mo poof, the chain of narration is called moko is a type that doesn't go to the Prophet sallallahu it was and he didn't take a companion set. And he said it based on what he learned from being around the prophets on Long Island English. And Okay, so those are some of the details that we'll learn in this book, we also
we also have Hadeeth of different Greetings, three very common types. And we will mention, you know, each one, so we have Sati, or authentic Heidi, some of them are actually part of the collection of authentic hadith that the prophet SAW that Imam and Buhari put in his gem, so he has collection of authentic hadith, some of them are weak, right, some of these are actually weak, and we will, you know, show how they are weak or explained that this one is weak, but nevertheless, and also, the third category is sound or hesson, which means it's not authentic, but it's not weak. It might just be a small deficiency somewhere, or the chain of narrations. Maybe one person is, you know, a little
bit unknown, or this chain was, you know, told to us by different scholars, and in that chain, there were two different kinds, one that had one person another that had a different person, right, so there's different types of Hadeeth. But the point is, when we go through this book, and we study the Hadith, as well as the statements of some of the Sahaba, we will learn that the lessons that we get whether the Hadith is authentic, whether it is Hasson right, so either it's right, or it is huson, which is sound, or it's vice, it's weak. There's still a lesson that we learned from it. And the scholars still tell us that even though Heidi's might be weak, or or, you know the truth, when it
comes to matters of love, and love and ethics and morals and behaviors, then we should take from it, you should still take from it because this is good, right? So we're taking goodness from it, and there's nothing wrong with that. So we'll start with the first Hadith in sha Allah to Allah.
Firstly, emammal Buhari begins by quoting verse number eight of solar land carboot, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says what was seen in Santa BYD day, he has an app. Now for those of you that have smartphones, those of you that might have a data package on your phone, you can easily follow along if you go to some.com. So su n and H sunnen.com. forward slash Adam, Ada be
similar.com forward slash AD AD. And you will find the Hadeeth right in front of you in almost the entire book, okay, with beautiful English as well. So if you want to follow along, please do so. And that's what I encourage you to do. Especially if you have let's say a tablet and a notepad that would be even better. So you can take notes and so on and so forth. So a moment. It begins with chapter one with the words of Allah subhana wa tada where he says we have enjoined men to be kind to his parents. And so this first chapter revolves around or the first few parts of this book revolves around dealings with our parents how to be good children. And we're all children, as we know,
whether we're five years old, 10 years old, 2025 3035 4050 6070 80, we're always going to be children to our parents. Right? We might be seen as babies, we might be seen as beta, we might be seen as something a little bit more like Mashallah, he's now a man and a father and a mother and so on and so forth. But nonetheless, we're always going to be children to our parents. So in the first Hadeeth here that we see
a mama a Shivani, said, the owner of this house and he pointed to the house of Abdullah even Massoud said, I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which action among the mighty and exalted loves best. He said prayer at its proper time. I asked and after that, now who is asking Who? Who can tell us
Who just followed along? This is the beauty of Hadeeth, you'll become very good at this because we're going to cover a lot of heavy, you'll get very, very good at this at the beginning, it's going to be like, Wait a second, I'm confused and lost who's saying what? Let's go back. I'm going to say Bernie, he says,
The owner of this house, and he points to the house of Abdullayev in Mr. Route.
So I'm going to say that he says, The owner of this house have to live in Mr. Route. He said, so now I'm delighted in this room is actually the one that said this, but Obama is narrating it to us.
So Abdullah bin Massoud says, I asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam which action? Allah subhanho wa Taala loves best for what is the best action to a muscle kind of water Hannah. He said prayer at its proper time
to pray your son out on time. I asked and after that, he said then to be dutiful or dutifulness to your parents. The first and foremost thing that he mentions is the most beautiful action two of us have handled with Adam is to pray Our prayers on time. How many of us do this? How many of us focus on praying our prayers on time? It is the most beloved thing to a Muslim handle it as even as rude about the alarm. It tells us that he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this. The most beloved thing to Allah subhana wa tada is to pray on time.
In a salata cabinet Allah mini Nikita makuta as Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, that Allah is to be prayed at its specific times.
And of course, when we noticed the timings of Salah, we noticed that there are many different timings to start with. Salatin also has first shadow and second shadow, right, the henna visa will say the first shadow, the chef Aries will say the second channel, right, we're not going to talk about too much in this aspect. We're not going to get into too much detail here because we want to talk about parents. But the point is, we need to pay attention to our prayers being done on time.
And for many of us, we fail to do that. In fact, at some point in time, each and every one of us fails to do that. Right? We don't realize the importance of praying our prayers on time, to the extent that we can't even tell just by looking outside of the sun or the moon, what time it is to pray. And I did this test with children. When I was in Hong Kong just two weeks ago, I told the children I said, you know, we shouldn't be able to tell whether it's time for selective VOD, or officer or mother or father. Just by looking at the sky. And and I really, really it is a little Chinese children. Some of them are Pakistani originally, right? And then like, how do we tell what
time it is to pray without using our phone? And it was like, Is that the only way you know how to tell the time for Salah? They're like, yeah, just application, Baba showed us a simple application. You take your phone and go like this. And then you have all the time.
Pamela That's amazing, right? But we should be able to do this, where you're you know, so many times I actually don't use a watch anymore to tell the time for someone even though sometimes I like to have it because you traveling to different time zones. But simply sitting in an airplane, you can look outside and tell the time for sada and so how to let you know just to tickle your minds. You know, I was flying from here to Hong Kong, which is a 16 hour flight. And I left after my halaqa just went straight to the airport. My flight took off just after midnight. I flew 16 hours and landed in Hong Kong before fudger started.
I left after midnight on Wednesday, like Wednesday night, Thursday, early morning. So Thursday, early morning at one o'clock in the morning and landed in Hong Kong at 530 in the morning. On Friday. Where did Thursday go? It disappeared.
How many times did I press on that on that flight? Who can tell me?
Who can tell me? I left Friday. Sorry. I left Thursday, early in the morning at one o'clock in the morning like Wednesday night after midnight and I arrived Friday just before fudge. How many prayers that are around that
556 to us.
I prayed zero
and I didn't miss any prayers.
I prayed zero times.
If I was to follow my watch, I would have prayed many times. Right I would have been like
Time for this time for that type of this type of that, right? But because the sun never rose, I was flying with the night.
After 16 hours of being in the plane, I never saw daylight.
And so I prayed zero times. This is just an example. On the way back now.
I left Hong Kong at around 566 pm.
That's 6pm on Monday, this Monday, I arrived in Toronto at 8pm. On Monday, I flew 16 hours. I got here two hours.
How many prayers that I
get it? I flew 16 hours. I left Monday at 6pm. I got here Monday at 8pm. But I flew 16 hours. Right. And I flew back this way, but this time I was flying against the sun. So when I landed here on Monday, what time was it? 8pm. What time what prayer? Do we pray at 8pm? A shot right? on Monday. But I left there on Monday. Did I have to pray anything?
Is it did I pray Muslim, a virgin, awesome. Mother and a shaman I landed. Very interesting, right? If I was to look at my watch, I would say no, I don't have to pray anything. Why? Because I only learned two hours after I fly. Even though I'm in the plane for 16 hours. I only learned two hours later. But telling the time of solid by looking out the window is absolutely important. absolutely important. And so on a 16 hour flight you can't get any sleep because every two hours you're going to need more room to print.
And that's the beauty of the sun and that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to focus on. The fact that the best of actions as a prophet son alone while he was on them says and now this is not the only best action there are many other actions, but we know that Salah is important as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned here and that was just an example to tickle our minds.
Then in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says are so delighted and must rude. He asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He then said
dutifulness to parents. So after praying our Salah on time, the most important or the most beloved action to a loss of Hannibal attallah is to be dutiful to our parents. Now what does it mean to be dutiful to our parents? Let's finish this Howdy. I asked after that. And he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said then she had in the way of Allah. Forgive me, I said a j word. He then said, he told me about these things. If I had asked him to tell me more, he would have told me more. So I'm delighted that Mr. Rude says three things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them as the beloved actions to a loss of Hannah Montana, the first means Allah, the second
being dutifulness to parents, and the third being Jihad for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala now let's cover Jihad because I know we don't want to leave here without anyone you know, being confused about this. jihad is a different types. Jihad at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was as different types just as it is today. Right today and hamdulillah right now for us here it is not legislated upon us make that clear. For those of you that want to take this the wrong way and go and post it on the internet and twist words I'm reporting it as well. And I like to record my lectures in case anyone tries to twist and turn words in the ways that suit them best. So don't
think that jihad is something that is legislated upon you. It isn't at this point in time, our leaders, the scholars of the oma have not legislated it It is not something that is upon us, defending the people or the people who are living in countries where they must defend themselves. That is a different story. They're defending themselves, yes, and that is permissible and that they must do right, an injustice has been done upon them. But there are also different types of jihad. Coming to the masjid in this minus 40 degree weather is jihad.
You hear that come into a mustard in this weather that we have outside and not having water in the mustard for weeks is Jihad at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is it was raining outside. The companions were told to stay home if it was raining. Now I'm not telling us to stay home. Don't get me wrong, because we're trained for this. We're used to this cold weather. And we can make excuses and say oh, I stay home. Right? It's not It's worse than rain outside. Yeah, but you're going to work still. When it was raining for the companions, they wouldn't go to work, but they would make sure they would strive hard to get to the masjid. And that's why the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave them that exemption because the most important thing for them was to get
To the masjid, to pray in Jamaica Salah. As we saw here, the most beloved action to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But for us at this point in time, a beautiful example is the fact that it's freezing cold outside. so cold that when I left Malaysia was plus 42. And in one day of traveling I got here 82 degrees difference, this plus 42. There it was minus 40. Here 82 degrees of difference my body went through and one thing right, what's up How about we still come to the masjid? That is our jihad. That is our striving now for those who wonder what Jihad means. Jihad means to strive for the sake of a muscle
to push yourself to the limits. So when it's freezing cold, you still go to the muscles. When there's no water, you find water, or you make blue at home, or you try to come up with a solution in order to do as much and as best as you can to please Allah Subhana Allah Allah. Now these two things, the first and the third one ties right in with the middle points of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which is to be dutiful to our parents. Our parents teach us the importance of
our parents teach us the importance of striving, hard to please a loss accountable and to have it. But we take our parents words for granted. We think that whatever they're telling us, it's just words, it's useless. It's nothing. I'm old enough to decide, I'm old enough to understand. I know what's better for me than other people do. Why should I listen to my parents? They're getting old. We use these, you know, touchscreen phones nowadays. Our parents don't know how to use it. Why should I listen to my parents, and we'll see why we need to listen to our parents. In the next few Hadith, this hadith it also shows us
It shows it shows the keenness of this companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order to learn good deeds.
You get that? He teaches us how keen, how eager, let's have a word about the alarm. I'm home, to learn what were the good deeds, and those good deeds are the deeds that we should emphasize. after praying our Salah on time, the most important thing is to listen to our parents. And when our parents tell us, it's time to come and eat. It's time for food. Comma, naughty shorty Carnival, a party party, right? It's time to eat, we get up and we eat. Right when they tell us to clean the room, we clean the room. When our parents tell us when we get older. I haven't seen you in five years. I haven't seen you in 10 years, come and visit us or bring us from back home to visit you. We
should try and do that. Trying to soothe the pain that's going through the hearts of our parents. It is absolutely important that we do this because in another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that will cover one day in sha Allah, Allah to Allah, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us the concept of what goes around comes around what you do to your parents, your children will do to you. So when you harm your parents, when you fail to appreciate them, when you fail to recognize the pains that they go through in their hearts. You will feel the same thing from your children being done to you when they get older as well.
That is what we learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So to be eager to learn what is best and most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to learn the ability to have the ability to ask questions, is something that we learned from this hadith as well. Let's move on to the second headin, right. I'm delighted to Norma it'll be a long time he said the pleasure of the Lord lies in the pleasure of the parents and the anger of the LORD meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala lies in the anger of the parents. The pleasure of Allah lies in the pleasure of the parents and the anger of a law license.
So when our parents are angry with us, a lot is angry with us. And when our parents are happy with us, Allah subhana wa tada is happy with us. How many of us strive hard to seek the happiness the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala with us, meaning how many times do we wish Allah would be pleased with us. And we can simply get that pleasure by calling up our parents by buying something nice for our parents by paying for their heating bill in the middle of the winter. Right by going in shoveling the snow for them without them even knowing that it was us that shoveled it in the middle of the night by doing things that our parents would not even assume that
It was us, but they're pleased and happy that a loss of countless Allah bless them with that ability to benefit from something that is getting the pleasure of your parents. And by doing so, I'm also accountable with and is pleased with us. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with us, the doors of gender open upon us, the doors of Paradise open upon us, when our parents are happy, a lot is happy. And it is so simple, such a simple concept to have our parents pleased with us. But yet we failed to do so. So he says the pleasure of a law lies with the pleasure of our parents and the planet. The anger of a love lies with the anger of our parents, and this is a Hasson Heidi sound.
We'll look at the next one Ethan Sharla hotel had to go through a few of them, they all tie in with one another.
That has he been hacking him from his father. So he says from his father through his grandfather, Maria, even Haider, he says,
I asked the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam towards whom should I be dutiful? He said your mother. So he his grandfather tells him that he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who should I be dutiful towards? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says your mother, I then asked towards whom he replied to your mother the second time.
He then says,
then towards whom he replies your mother, again I asked them towards him, this is a fourth time he says your mother. And then I asked the fifth time, towards whom should I be dutiful, he says, Your father and then the nearest relative, and then the nearest. Now this again shows us how eager the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were, they wanted to please their parents, they saw the importance of pleasing their parents, but they wanted more. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reiterated the fact your mother, your mother, your mother, and in this Hadees, the fourth time your mother, we see it again in another Hadith where the Prophet mentions it three
times, so long it Listen, but in this heady four times, and then he says, After your mother, he says, Your father, and then the next relative, and then the next relative. So first and foremost, we see the importance of seeking knowledge. Secondly, in this study, the preference is given to the mother because she suffered extremely difficult situations in giving birth to us. Now, how many of us have lost a mother Some of us have, some of us are already at that age where we are the mother and father to the children, the next generation, and our parents have already passed away.
And they're gone. Our parents are gone. hamdulillah minor here are some of some of the brothers and sisters their parents are still with them as well. But some of us have lost our parents. And so we lost out on the mother we lost out on the mother we lost out on the mother we lost out on the mother.
And this Hadith, it's mentioned four times.
Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says your father. So if your father is still around, you have the opportunity to do something good for your father. By doing so the doors of gender are open for you still, to get to gender through your parents.
The third thing that we learned in this hadith is the fact that the nearest relatives should take precedence over others. So as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam states, and this is important to point out, because many of us live in this society, where our immediate relatives are people that we cut ties with. I know examples of people who have brothers or sisters who are no longer Muslim.
They're no longer Muslim, or they have parents that are no longer Muslim. Now, regardless of what Islam says, to be legislated upon them as a punishment, we don't live in a place where the Sharia law is implemented. Okay. Therefore, we must have respect for them. We must still try to maintain the ties of family kinship
with those people who may still be with Islam, far from Islam, or leftism, why, why do we have to do this? Who can tell us and I know the microphone is distracting A lot of you who can tell us why it's important to maintain family ties with relatives that are that are either still within the deen or becoming far from the dean or have left the deep. Why is it important to maintain Family Ties?
Exactly. So they can come closer to the need. You know when you cut off ties with
your door of being a means for them to come back to you said, You shut on yourself.
You shut the door of that person coming back to Islam through you on your own self, you no longer want to be someone who is capable of helping them to come back to a set. Because you push them away, you shut the door, you locked it and you threw the key at the bottom of the ocean. You no longer care about that. And that's,
that is wrong. We should be looking to bring every single person towards the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Tada. And as much as it hurts, and sometimes it is even our parents that leave is that I know this, I was dealing with a case last night of someone who's related to my wife, who is looking to get married to someone who's Muslim, but that brothers father, left Islam, that brothers father left a sense of her future father in law is not Muslim. He left Islam he was Muslim. He was Muslim when his son was born, his son is now at the age of getting married. And now he is no longer Muslim. The parents are divorced, he's doing his own thing. It's a reality. It's a reality in our in our
society, that our parents leave Islam at times, how do we deal with them? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still tells us to be dutiful to them. You remember that companion that came to the profits on Walmart, he was boasting and saying I'm gonna go fight jihad. Right? He's gonna go fight and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he heard this, he saw this companion talking to the other companions saying, I left my parents and they're crying, and they're weeping. And he was boasting about it, telling the other companions as though he did something so honorable and so great that I left them by them, I did that for the sake of pleasing a lot. I left them crying in tears
weeping, because I want to go stand next to Muhammad Sallallahu, I didn't even send them. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard that, he told that companion to go back, go back, go back to your parents.
He didn't allow that companion to go and fight Jihad with them.
He told that companion to go back to your parents and make them smile and laugh. Just as you made them cry and weep, meaning, the amount of effort that you put in to make them cry and weep, to show off thinking you're doing something so brave and so honorable go and put the amount, that same amount of effort to make them happy. And the parents of that companion or machine, they were not even Muslim.
But the profits of a lot of them, stopped him from going and fighting in something that we look at as being so great, so honorable, especially at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stopped that companion to go and to do a bit of validation, to reconnect the ties of kinship, that he that he cut with his parents, and his parents were not even Muslim. Imagine that. Imagine the state or the condition of that person. How ashamed he must have felt in front of the prophets all along it was.
And he had to go back to parents that were not even believers and not even believers in the last panel.
And so that was the condition or the state of the companions of the abattoir. And now we'll stop there and shut up. Actually, let's take this next Hadeeth because it has to do with
you have too much going on here.
So let's take this next, Heidi, because it has everything to do with being dutiful to one's mother. We'll read through it and we'll just touch upon it very short nature a long time,
which is number four for those of you that are following along.
I thought it'd be in the asabe. He reported from Abdullah, us that a men came to us and said, I asked a woman to marry me and she refused to marry me.
So he goes to ask this woman to marry him and she refuses.
I'll speak really loud, maybe the sisters in here. So I thought it'd been yesod he reported from I'm delighted in our bus that a man came to him in our bus and said
I asked a woman to marry me and she refused to marry me.
Another man asked her and she agreed to marry him. I became so jealous
ls that I killed her.
He got so jealous that this woman he wanted to marry refused him. And another man that went to propose to her, she accepted. He got so jealous, he went and he killed her. He says, I became jealous and I killed her. Is there a way for me to repent? Imagine that. This part alone gives us a beautiful example. You remember what happened in Paris not too long ago, right? Where these people went in and started killing innocent people. Right? Maybe they're guilty of, you know, writing or drawing hate crimes against them. But they were innocent in the state that they were right. And these people who did what they did in Paris and killing police officers, and so on and so forth.
They then fled. No one could find them.
No one could find them. Right.
And this shows how they were being cowardly about that situation.
This men, he kills a woman that he was extremely jealous about, right? He wanted to marry her and he became jealous of that other person. He goes in, he kills her.
And then he comes to us. And he's telling even our best that I killed this woman. So he's straight up coming out and admitting it. And so he asked, Is there a way for me to repent?
Even ambass asks him, is your mother alive?
Is your mother alive? The men replied, No.
His mother's not alive. Even our boss then says repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and try to draw near to him as much as you can. So seek forgiveness ask Allah Subhana Allah for Toba and try to get close to Allah subhana wa tada as you as close as you possibly can.
I thought says this is the person who was relating this Hadeeth to us. I thought he says, I then went to even our bass and asked him, he got curious. He goes Sam at our best. He says, You know, I went to even our bass and I asked him, Why did you ask him whether his mother was alive?
Even our bus he replies, I do not know of any action better for bringing a person near to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Other than being dutiful to his mother. Imagine that this person committed murder.
He murdered someone he came in, he admitted it. And this is not a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is a statement of in our best, he says I don't know of an action that is going to bring you closer to a loss of handle to Allah, other than being dutiful to your mother. Therefore, brothers and sisters,
for those of us
for those of us that have committed sins in our life, done things that we right now at this very moment are thinking of in our minds, and regretting and wishing that we never ever did it and too shy and too embarrassed to even think of it for our own selves. Know that you can be forgiven of those sins. By simply doing something good for your parents. That's it. Just do something nice for your parents. Obviously, you seek forgiveness, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness, and then be nice and dutiful, towards your parents.
And from this Hadith, we also learn the importance of those who have knowledge, guiding those who are vulnerable and in need. So for each and every one of us now that we learned this Heidi, and three other heady or other statements and narrations from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as well as the companions that will be lower at home, it is important for us to help and guide others that are in need and vulnerable to falling prey to sin, etc, etc. And that is the lesson that we learn from this hadith.
Or from the from this narration of us are the Aloma and, and the other companions that will be a lot more on home. So will suffice with that for this week in sha Allah to Allah. I know it's been a little bit awkward with this microphone, you know, playing games, who you know, it's been like this all day Juma hookah was like that as well. It will be fixed next week. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to go through this book. We'll go through it as you know, at the very beginning for that just so that you know, we know at the very
The beginning of this book, it covers Hadeeth, or topics that are very common to us. These are Hadeeth that we've already gone over, we've already learned, right? But there's so many things that we just, you know, explained and discussed. In addition to these, throughout the rest of the book, as we go along, you'll see that there's topics that you possibly know you probably never even thought of, or never even imagined, right? Like how to return the greetings to someone to greet a child.
asking permission from someone three times before entering their place, and so on and so forth. going through difficult times, right, how to benefit from the profits that you gain in terms of wealth, being someone who's too talkative. What What did the companions learn from the prophets
with regards to someone that was a chatterbox? Right?
