Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Parana Karim in Surah. 33 is 23 mentions of the believers in meaning meaning as the gentlemen who have been true to the pledge to Allah subhanho wa Taala la la.

00:05:21--> 00:05:35

from them, some have fulfilled the pledges, and some are still in hope of doing so and they never change at heart. Las panatela when mentioning this, as referring to particular people among this habit of the law,

00:05:37--> 00:06:15

and also the loss of Allah and Islam, recited this verse of the Parana, Karim, and then turned to the Sahaba Dylan, whom he pointed to this hobby, about whom we are going to be discussing today, while her even obey the law, or the Allahu anhu. And he said to him, and said to this habit of jalon, anyone who wants to please himself by looking at the man walking on the earth, who has fulfilled his pledge of martyrdom, should look at Valhalla. Ravi Allahu taala. Han Allah, Allah, Allah Islam, referred to anybody and suddenly Allah have forgiveness on you. And

00:06:16--> 00:06:45

if nobody said a lie subset of this happy that you fulfilled your pledge of martyrdom, or anything indicating martyrdom, then it's a hobby. That was a prophecy for Brazil Allah sallallahu sallam, it's a happy with the method. And the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to have never wished, nor did they hardly ever aspire for long, for a better announcement, in what possible massive abolish them directly to tell hadn't already elaborate the line home

00:06:46--> 00:07:12

and resell Allahu Allah. He seldom mentioned this, then they'll have a lot who could feel secure, that his destiny his Deke read would be that you would be martyred in the past of Allah subhanaw taala he would live and die as one of those who have been true to the pledge made for Allah subhanho wa Taala, that nothing is going to affect him. Nothing is going to influence him and he's going to live true to this pledge made Allah subhanaw taala.

00:07:15--> 00:07:40

Now, we look at this hobby. And you see that once the reseller license had made this announcement with regards to this hobby, then obviously we You and I have to learn some lessons from this companion of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what was his life? Like? How did he live? How did he spend his time that he achieved this? According to the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:07:41--> 00:08:33

still have to obey the law of Dylan who was trading the land of bus Ronnie met one of the most virtuous monks, me this was prior to the novoa of medicinal Maha Islam, this monk those that have a dilemma that a prophet was going to appear in the sacred land in the harem, and the process appearance was prophesized as well by all of the previous ambia salaam. And this mom told him that this prophecy era has already begun. They'll have a Dylan who was afraid that he's going to miss this process of guidance, mercy and salvation, immediately returned to his homeland to Makkah Khurana. And he traveled around and he found a lot of talk taking place here and they someone or a

00:08:33--> 00:09:16

group of inhabitants of Makkah, will tell him about Mohammed, the trustworthy about the angel that was sent down to him about the mission. The restaurant was caring to the Arabs in particular and to the entire world. And the first thing he asked was about Abubakar or the Allahu taala and who said what is a gelato? What is E stands What is his approach and he learned the double vodka or Dylan had returned with a caravan and played not long ago, and he was standing at the side of Mohammed Salah Maha Islam. He believed in Mohammed Salah nicely he defended Mohammed Salah al Islam, still harder the longer said

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

Mohammed and Abubakar,

00:09:20--> 00:09:28

Allah, both of them would never join each other and agree upon false This was their reputation.

00:09:30--> 00:09:55

And he said a lot Islam had already reached the age of 40. In all these years that have a delanda says, We have never heard him speak one single lie. Is it possible that you would now lie about something so important something so great about Allah? And would he lie and say that Allah has simply as a prophet in Allah sent an angel? To me?

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

That is something hard to believe this is what will happen.

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

To deliver city in South, he rushed to the house of Abubakar Delano.

00:10:07--> 00:10:17

And we didn't talk for very long, because the aspiration of the heart of the land was that he wanted to meet Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam and he wanted to take Shahada

00:10:19--> 00:10:41

and look at it gelato took him to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and immediately felt hora de lado embraced Islam, and he joined the ranks. This is how Sahara gelato became one of the very early Muslims. Despite his honorable rank among his own plan, he also had a vast wealth for successful in his trade.

00:10:43--> 00:11:26

He also had to take placed his own portion of the persecution meted out by the finish the task of torturing him, and Abubakar Dylan who was given to a person called nofal, even acquainted, this novel was called the lion of the flesh. They persecution did not last long, because the French started feeling ashamed about what they were doing to these two noble Arabs and noble people of the town, and they started thinking about the consequences of what they were doing. They'll have a villain who later on made his raw to Madina, munawwara and Rasulullah sallallahu instructed the Muslims to emigrate.

00:11:27--> 00:11:34

And after that he experienced all the battles with Rasulullah sallallahu besides the Battle of butter, because the recent Allaha Islam

00:11:35--> 00:11:55

at that time is sinful ha, and saeeda Museo de la pneumoniae and in the assignment outside Marina whenever we fulfill the task and on the way back to Medina surah last lesson, it's a habit of lahoma returning home after the battle, and sell hot and Zaid side when the saber Dylan felt so seen

00:11:56--> 00:12:07

and felt domains it because they missed the reward of joining Rasulullah sallallahu in his first battle. However, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:12:09--> 00:12:30

accorded them peace of mind, we informed them that the reward was exactly like the one year's reward. Moreover, it gave them a share of the booty exactly like the shape that he gave to each one, we had fought the battle. So even though they will not be present in the Battle of better versus the last of us and give them full shade,

00:12:31--> 00:13:09

we after was the Battle of ohad after two years, and when the kurush together was all they might in tyranny came to take revenge for the losses on the day of bothering you know that many of the courage will kill them. They wanted to restore the dignity they wanted to feed the Muslims once and for all the game of the huge army at the Battle of HUD and they thought that they were going to destroy the Muslims and defeat them completely. A fierce battle took place and the battlefield was filled with was a great calamity. Now, even in the

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

See Deena

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

P was

00:17:36--> 00:18:15

Welcome back to Al mushrif. Andre some international unfortunately, we had a power cut in Amarillo. And that's the reason they went off abruptly, but we'll just round up the story of still having Obaidullah de la Durango. And during the Battle of or hurt the Labradoodle, the shears have the fierce battle that took place. And the policies were, they were under the feet. And this when Muslims saw them re retreating, and the archers defended their descendants from the post. And

00:18:16--> 00:19:03

then the clover Quraysh army did that. And the policies started hitting the other hand in Valhalla Delano saw that the side of the battlefield versus the loss after machining, that was the target that these policies were aiming at. And this is what they were concentrating on. And he immediately headed towards the sort of massive Mr. Harrison. And he went through a long and fierce battle to get there. And it was a year to confer concern, so many of the enemy has to get to the sort of loss of Mr. Hansen. And you could see from a distance how many slices cheek was bleeding, and then put some aside in the 70s. As then, they'll have a Dylan who was married once or twice over the price of

00:19:03--> 00:19:39

hora. And then he receives a loss of a mathematician. And the incentive there is a lot harder is when the policy is mission teams started attacking. And they'll have a Dylon who went to the cancer sort of masala holism. And they'll have you understood that he was like a raging army all on his own, swinging his sword fighting it from left to right. You can see this at a loss of allies from deeding. He was saddened by that. He has a visceral audition carried him away and his foot got stuck

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

in a hole in Minnesota, my heroes. He helped us with the losses with his left hand and chest and the precondition allows him to safe and secure place that he's right here. He fought the sorts of the policies in this round of the civil last lesson. like a like a battlefield, swarmed with locusts.

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

And whatever demondo an easy call to do or what used to say that it was a

00:20:07--> 00:20:23

reliable place to approach the supermarket, Mr. Harrison said to me into obaidul, Java, watch out for your brother we looked at him and you could see more than 70 stab wounds his finger was cut off. And we say to him as energy his condition

00:20:25--> 00:21:06

and if you look at all the different events in vessels they'll have the language was always to be found in the forefront fighting the path of Allah subhanaw taala. So how to land with lived among the Muslim community worship Allah subhanho wa Taala you fought in the path of Allah Subhana Medina and you follow the basic principles of what Islam set out. And what took people out of darkness into light. And the civil laws of the law Madison referred to tell have Islam he said they'll have excellent they'll have the splendid they'll have the generous in the midst of the Lucha Islam, as always, please with your fellow hydrogeological with Elijah Dylan was generous in such a way that

00:21:06--> 00:21:47

many a time he gave his entire fortune away his wife so either the dolphins reported it once they approached her highness saw him Why didn't as he wants to manage him. The money which I possess is now so abundant that it worries me and makes me feel distressed. I told him, nevermind, I'll distribute that money. And you set out to call the people in divided among them until there wasn't a single dyrham left magnification he sold his entire land for a very high price and he looked at the pile of money. He steers rolls around in his head, a man in whose house all that money is remain for a night and he doesn't know for sure what will happen to him the next morning. He certainly deceived

00:21:47--> 00:22:17

their last panatela Nicholson have discovered Platinum to carry his money with them and walk through the streets of Medina and distribute the money until the last part of the night ritual without a single Gillham of their money. And jabiru and I'm delighted to have you on this licence and describe the wealth of the missing amen never ever saw anybody giving out so much money without being asked Is it they'll have to obey the law for the amount of time

00:22:18--> 00:22:39

and beside them diseases long run today companies have has learned during travels and during time of settlement that is seen in Medina as well. I never saw anybody more generous in terms of money, clothes and food. Then I'll have the mathematical study of how to Dylan is tremendous, greatly inspirational and

00:22:41--> 00:22:58

understand that somehow Islam is dead dedication and devotion to a man is also mahadiscom we make drivers Allah subhanaw taala makes us among those people who fulfill this covenant that they have made as a lion is also a Maha Islam and that they fulfill this

It's gonna be seven minutes to tell Welcome back to American radio Islam International. And my guest during this last half hour of the program is Dr. Adrian Elisa Riva salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

confronting problems and how to deal with this.

00:27:00--> 00:27:04

deceptive, so I made sure I gave them an exercise to do

00:27:05--> 00:27:18

was say, conduct this interview Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, you recently returned from your holiday in Canada, and some amazing sights and amazing people you may have met

00:27:19--> 00:27:29

Al Hamdulillah. You know, maulana this something? You know, I've been to many parts of the world, Allah's blessing. And, you know,

00:27:31--> 00:27:48

I just was so emotional. I was so emotional. When I saw the beautiful, beautiful creation of Allah. In fact, you know, talk about the trip, that is a place in Van fishkol. Lake Louis. And

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

I went there, and you won't believe it.

00:27:53--> 00:28:43

And I saw the lake the first time. It was as if I'm seeing the Kaaba, I cried, I cried like a baby as Allah, you are so merciful, Yala, you are so merciful, your law. And you know, it is almost, you know, we are because of our blindness we do not see Allah everywhere. And the beautiful, the landscape. And you know, and I always like to take lessons from all my experiences. And I think you know, if we as families, spend more time not necessarily going overseas, but appreciating the beautiful landscape. Voila. It gives you tranquility, it gives you purpose, you know, your way from the technology. And hamdulillah the the you know, I met with

00:28:44--> 00:28:54

just briefly I spent three days in Toronto, and I Alhamdulillah Allah blessing. I went for Juma and I listened to your colleague Milan, in your salon.

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

He gave a wonderful, wonderful talk there.

00:29:00--> 00:29:07

And he says that it is everyone's responsibility to do something and you must not be detached from it.

00:29:08--> 00:29:12

You know, we must do something I remember liking your salons. And then what we did was

00:29:13--> 00:29:20

from day we flew to Calgary. And then we met had just met Rashid

00:29:21--> 00:29:35

and his wife Rashida, they are there for some time, and they received us and then we just for a short while we're there with them for a few hours. We hide the car. And I went my friend Baker smile and his wife and he went to

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

went to a place called Kenmore. We spent three days there, we went to the Rockies, and there's so many beautiful lakes and mountains. And the law we kept on saying Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah and then we went to Edmonton, then you spent five, six days in Vancouver, and with Allah blessing, we met a few other South Africans there in

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

admeasurement mfn Hamza and his wife Pooja, both doctors there. We met my wife's cousin the Serbian moolah there. And then in Vancouver, we met say it. And they get them and his wife, Shireen. And we met a few other Africans. And one of my highlight was, is Elijah, I want to get rid of Islam to interview him. As in Jamal was a motivational speaker. And I met with him. And it was really All in all, a wonderful trip. It was a very, very trip, and Verona things that I need to share. And then also he went to Victoria, the island of Vancouver, met with Mr. Gowda and Mama kathrada. They were all solemn, they love the warmth and hospitality has been unbelievable. But one of the two things,

00:30:52--> 00:31:12

thing all of them said without exception, and you know, there aren't, for example, you don't find fences there. The the security is incredible. It's wonderful. I know the standard of living is great. But each one of them said to us, if I recall, that there are two things they really miss.

00:31:13--> 00:31:58

The one is family and friends. And then I thought, you know, we have so many friends and family in South Africa, but we did not, you know, service that relationship. We do not work on those nation, we take them for granted. We do not nurture those relationships. So I think that's a lesson for us, you know, and sorry, I could not thank ally enough for the opportunity to go there to visit the places and sadly, I could not meet my color friends shake up the libraries. You have gone to these conference in America. And so but there was no was there my cousin Amina, he spoke to her the last time Gemma

00:31:59--> 00:32:09

spoke to her yesterday it was a wonderful trip read only aliquot plan such a wonderful trip to Alaska is not about our Spotnitz you know,

00:32:11--> 00:32:30

Mashallah, it sounds like a very interesting stuff in and especially getting to meet all of the developers and getting to know how the locals live, you know, usually you can see just see the hotel when you see the tourist destinations in that state. And here you've got an opportunity to meet with the locals, what are some of the challenges besides you know, messing with

00:32:31--> 00:32:36

things like that, what challenges they are facing f8 especially

00:32:38--> 00:33:16

before before I forget the two things I was mentioned, that Alhamdulillah even though they are in Canada, you know, they are people that really look up to our scholars, you know, and, and I was so glad when I went to the MA mos i saw Maulana Suleiman mobilized for the program for the youth there. And then I met, really, this was, to me an incredible experience in Vancouver, there is a brother from Mexico became a Muslim. And then he said, you know, and he said, his inspiration is mostly manga, you know, I see what you like about him. He says, No, I like the way he presents the deal to us in you know,

00:33:18--> 00:34:07

Juma, and the nice way does that you know, so what I did was I took a chance I found Mufti menk. And he spoke to me, he was so overjoyed, you know, and I think sometimes we South Africa, we sometimes take our scholars for granted. And they have such a powerful, powerful impact on the people out there. And one of my messages I sent was, sometimes in your own town or place, you regarded as non entity, but when you go out, you're regarded as celebrity, you know, and I think it's even a date is ermelo, anywhere else, that we must also value people with knowledge, people that are good people, and look up to them, nurture them, because they are those that are utilizing the knowledge and the

00:34:07--> 00:34:30

services Alhamdulillah. Yes, definitely. And we estimate progress further, that is a important thing. We are an AMA and really what they are doing for the community that is coming to the challenges that they are facing some people social challenges, I'm sure quite similar to what we are facing here. Yes, they are. Now you'll find all I remember,

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

in,

00:34:33--> 00:34:59

in rare in Victoria, and he made a very, very important point, you know, and the point that I think we sometimes neglect, I think is Africa. Sometimes As parents, we depend on our institutions, to nurture and bring up our children. And as a result, it becomes almost a spectators and we got almost control, you know, and he said that the thing that he had to do and they

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

You're set to get actively involved with your children's life, in terms of the sly in terms of the Serbia, Diem, and all of that you got to get actively involved in allies get to know exactly who their friends are, get to know about the schooling and be involved with them and in their life. And, and that really is something that I find many people were doing that because

00:35:25--> 00:36:11

because as parents, especially when you're out there, you are sometimes the only source of positive influence over the lives of the hearts and the minds. And if you're not actively involved, then you can be a no, you have to accept that responsibility. And I think this is an area I think that no, there was a very important reminder for me, and the reminder, to the listeners, that you cannot just sit back and think that you're providing the food, the clothing, and the material things and sometimes spoiling them with too much of the material things. And we expect our children to suddenly become responsive, responsible young people. And so that

00:36:12--> 00:36:47

was a situation. Yes, they also have many, many challenges, because you are living in a free and open society. It's very, very frightening in terms of the way liberal society in terms of their attitude, the values and the floating. But I found generally something that you know, you must never judge any country, by the government, you know, but the people I found, they showed a lot of social etiquette, even the non Muslims, a lot of, you know, the way they're related to you, that tells you when you you know,

00:36:48--> 00:36:53

visited that their places of interest, and all of that and, but as Muslims.

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

The lesson, I've got the lesson that as I said, all of us is to really get actively involved, get to know my children, be with them, support them, advise them, teach them and that is fundamental

00:37:11--> 00:37:58

community involvement and for us as individuals to become involved in active community members, I would like to bring that up inshallah we have to take a little break now. And I'd like to bring it up just after the break and for us as individuals to become active community members and not just rely on the efforts made by a few individuals but each of them to become active inshallah we will discuss after this break this news, you are listening to our master record every Sunday. So my name is Nita Saad, I guess this morning it is camisa any questions you may have SMS 0731738461 if you're listening to us from Canada, give us an SMS to say that you are listening to us all the way from the

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

station just after the strike

00:38:05--> 00:38:06

with Danny

00:40:06--> 00:40:14

Seven minutes to 12 Welcome back to our mashreq on radio Islam International. My guest is is Cammisa. And we are discussing

00:40:15--> 00:40:19

his trip to Canada and the lessons that he drew from the easiest way. Welcome back.

00:40:20--> 00:40:57

yongle always good to be back Alhamdulillah it is why we asked the question before the break about the importance of individuals being involved in the community and community activities, I'm sure in the communities in Canada is a greater community feeling because there is lack of, of immediate and close family members. So they have closer links to all different members of the community. Yes, absolutely. In fact, you know, I just give an example of my cousin Amina, you know, she traveled every day, about,

00:40:58--> 00:41:23

what 45 minutes driving this peak traffic, going and coming, helping out at the madressa stroke school. And then promoting programs promoting Arabic classes, very, very actively involved. Now for them, you'll find also an umbrella met, my ex teachers will be my head and admin shakin in Toronto, they are so actively involved in the community, right.

00:41:27--> 00:41:54

In other home is not a place where they like us to a place of decoration. A museum is today to live and to enjoy the living. And they are very, very actively involved. And they also have their own challenges. And I think the message is that we all thought the almighty of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam. And we have to actively get involved in the lives of children, lies of the own mind participate in community affairs.

00:41:56--> 00:41:57

Yes,

00:41:58--> 00:42:39

yeah, I find joy in South Africa that we have a reliance on some individuals or a certain group of a certain community committee, doing all the activities, taking charge and doing everything. And then the rest of us just sit back and don't do much or don't feel like we are really part of it. We're really active in a manner now it is so true. I mean, just look at it, right? We have become so spoiled many of us, and please, people must pardon me for being critical. We would go and read our Salah is a particular machine, they go there every day, you will not even support it financially. You don't ask the question, who's paying for the water, who's paying for the lights? Who's paying

00:42:39--> 00:43:19

for the machine who's paying for the Imam, nothing, sure, no initiative everyday. And yet you could do your Zoo at home, but it will come to the mosque and do it. But you have the audacity, I'm not even giving a sense. And this is the whole attitude of entitlement. You got to get involved. And now when you say you're part of the Illuminati of Navy shall allow you to sell them. It is not tokenism. It's not about being passive. And it's about actively getting involved, wondering what you can do and how you can go about doing or what is your role? What are the needs in the community? Why is it there are some individuals, no matter where they go through, they become in the forefront of

00:43:19--> 00:44:01

leadership, they want to do something about it. They do not engage with the Milan Imam and say manana is in what are the challenges you face is there any way we can support you in what you are doing? And all of it, they're talking to them socializing and engaging with them. And it is left in the hands of a few people. And they are the ones that are the patrons and involve armies of all the organizations. And you find that we set their standards, a very, very poor example with our own children. And you find those parents who volunteered their services, who got involved with different organizations, I mean, they inspired the children to do the same thing. And the benefits that accrue

00:44:01--> 00:44:37

from it are tremendous. Firstly, you're you get a lot of mercy you have Sakina you have peace of mind. You're actively involved, you are leaving a legacy. You get to know the challenges involved in the community. And you are a participant, they're not a spectator. And I think you know, that's a message and I think I'm so glad that you refer to that, that we need to do that and and do it for Allah sake, do it not for your personal enrichment, no anger and divestment or for name and feign greed because you feel an integral part of oma Tiana Bissell allowed

00:44:38--> 00:44:52

Yes, inshallah. This is where we won't hold you up very much longer. I'm sure if you need to go back to your, your workshop in your work that you need to do final words of advice. My final words of advice is the following.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

You know what, in our life is very fragile. We have no idea what

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

Smaller holds for us what zaft may hold for us. And I want fathers, especially our fathers to become really the armies of the home. Many of them have become in escalated, play the role of a mirror of the home, give your your family, the love and the guidance, get involved in their life, be an inspiration to them. And that is so important let us not succumb to different kinds of materialistic tendencies, that you forget why we are here. And and and really all of us have something to offer. We need to believe in ourselves, of course believe that we are really an integral part of oma to Nabi sallallahu. wasallam inshallah, inshallah.

00:45:46--> 00:46:00
