we again thank our last panel tala for

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

having given us

00:01:19--> 00:01:24

this wonderful and beautiful opportunity to be present in the month of Ramadan.

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

And we thank our last panel tala for his mercy and His kindness.

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

Upon the Omar Mohammed Salah.

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

allows for HANA with Allah, we ask Allah to bless this gathering,

00:01:39--> 00:01:46

and to give Shiva to all those who were ill or those hospital all those who have made all those who cannot be here.

00:01:48--> 00:01:53

And we ask Allah to guide our children in sha Allah, to make them good Muslims.

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

We know that we're in the month of the Quran, we're in the month of the Holy Quran.

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

The book in Islam when it came onto the world stage, it came basically with two things. It came with a book the Koran,

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

which is

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

an unparalleled divine message from our last 400,000.

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

And it came with a person by the name of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:02:24--> 00:02:25


00:02:26--> 00:02:27

came with

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

a who came as a person

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

imbued but Allah subhanaw taala will with the most beautiful personality.

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

Well in the color, Allah Allah, Allah,

00:02:41--> 00:02:52

Allah, Allah says, Mohammed Salah Valley, you are a person imbued with an amazing personality and character from allows Sanatana.

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

And Islam came with these two to two, it came with a personality, and it came with a book.

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

And it came

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

with a greatest task. And the greatest mission that has ever been set by any human being or any group or any organization in the world. And that was to convince humanity of its truth, the truth of Islam

00:03:18--> 00:03:22

and to recruit humanity, for the fellowship of Muslims.

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

Islam as I said, in detail, this great mission,

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

to convert humanity

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

in order to bring them

00:03:33--> 00:03:42

to achieve justice, to achieve truth, to achieve well being, and moreover, to achieve beauty

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

and today inshallah our hood bow will revolve around the concept of beauty or the concept of the sun.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

We know that Islam

00:03:57--> 00:04:05

is Islam, Islam consists of the activity of Muslims, the Hajj, the fasting, these occur

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

the Salah,

00:04:08--> 00:04:24

and the second dimension of Islam is our Eman and our Eman imagine revolves around understanding, understanding the deen understanding to read. Understanding allows for how not Allah

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

And then finally, the third dimension of Islam that we'll speak about today is the most deepest dimension.

00:04:32--> 00:04:44

It is the dimension of what we might call intentionality. I know it's a big word. I'll explain it. What is what intention intentionality mean? It means

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

ehsaan is that which only allows 100 tele can see an action only allows foreigner can judge

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

a son is

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

the place

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Excel is what we call the heart.

00:05:04--> 00:05:11

And the expression of the Sun is the beautiful character and manners of a human being of a person.

00:05:15--> 00:05:16


00:05:19--> 00:05:21

in its philosophy that he brought to the world

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

came with a philosophy and a, an A, and a rule of non discrimination.

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

But we didn't only say

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

that all people are equal.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

We also say, when are some people more equal than other people?

00:05:45--> 00:06:07

Because they had to be good and better and best. And Islam came to tell us and instruct us that there is only one thing that discriminates one human being from another human being. That gives a hedge to one human being over another human being. And that is the quality of taqwa.

00:06:08--> 00:06:19

And that is a prescription. If we follow it in the month of Ramadan to prescription of fasting, we will eventually reach the quality of taqwa

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

and taqwa may be expressed in many ways. And the sister of taco will speak about today. That was to be God conscious. And the sister of tech was a son, and your son

00:06:34--> 00:06:34

are frozen.

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

In reality means

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

that which is beautiful, that which is beautiful, and I'll explain how fasting and your son are twin sisters.

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

And Islam then

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

as a religion,

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

as a way of life,

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

speaks to the heart.

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

It addresses and appeals to the hearts of men.

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

And because it appeals to the hearts of men, it cannot be controlled by men.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

Men, if a man wants to accept Islam, there is nothing that can prevent that action.

00:07:24--> 00:07:49

Not all the money and mighty in the world, not the greatest armies can influence a person who stands on the brink of opening his heart to the beautiful message of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and Islam came to sanctify beauty in Allah. Hi, Jamie loon, your Red Bull Jamal. Now visa Salam says Allah is beautiful, and he loves everything which is beautiful.

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

And the expression of this beauty can be found, as I said, in the personality of the Narcissus Allah.

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

Allah Allah Allah Navin

00:08:01--> 00:08:21

and I she was asked about his personality and she said, kind of Hulu Al Quran that his character was nothing but the Quran, the Quran which was revealed in this month, the month of Ramadan. So the Prophet and the companions embraced the mission of exemplifying the beauty of Islam to humanity.

00:08:23--> 00:08:44

But what kind of beauty are we talking about? Are we talking about the beauty that we think is beautiful? The outer beauty, no. Nafisa Salam says in Allah Allah yonder Isla sorry, come on wa ala semicon. Wallachian young guru Illa poo becoming another Hadassah Malika.

00:08:46--> 00:08:50

Navistar Salaam says Allah doesn't look at your shape and your size.

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

Allah doesn't look at the beauty of your muscular frame of your body.

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

Allah looks at your deeds

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

and Allah looks at your hearts.

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

So the Sahaba alanson exemplified this.

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

And allows mahanoy tala

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

describe describes

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

the Sahaba in the following words in Surah Tauba verse 100.

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

Easy number to remember nine 100

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

as the hoonah Walloon allows for analysis Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Asad the honan our own meal Muhammad SAW Allah says, and the first Muslims

00:09:38--> 00:09:44

I'm going to stop my football or my voice is going to stop me whichever comes first. inshallah we'll take the one who comes first.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

One allows one that says I said you're going alone. The first Muslims who are they and mahadji Ron Wallace are those who emigrated from Makkah, while uncertain and those who helped him in Medina, one Medina

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

Valentina terbaru home and those who follow them

00:10:07--> 00:10:23

and those who follow them around the Allahu Allah, Allah please show them no other inserts a word in between the Allah so Allah says, I'm talking to you about the first Muslims. I am talking to you about those Muslims who will come after them and allows fatherless says

00:10:25--> 00:10:38

What about our own son? Allah doesn't say who follow the first Muslims Allah says follow the first mucins Muslims in beauty in beautiful deeds. Allah says they not only follow them

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

but they follow them in the beauty which they had done.

00:10:44--> 00:10:57

And later on inshallah I'll explain what the beauty was that they had and maybe I should give you a little example. You know everything a Muslim does is good. Like Salah is good. We take Hulu is good, but there is goodness and there is beauty.

00:10:58--> 00:11:16

And if the goodness is combined with the beauties of heinola that is Allah loves and Allah says to allow your home mon Marcin Allah loves those who do things beautifully. Allah loves beauty. So when you take will do for example, the Hadith of the Navy solem. The Navy some talks about Hulu

00:11:18--> 00:11:26

is Babu Allah mcherry evisa salaam talks about taking Moodle when it's very difficult to take hold in the coldness of the dead of winter.

00:11:27--> 00:11:36

But then Episode Seven talks about the fact that the places that you will do water will take will shine bright on the deaf tiama.

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

So those of us who take who do just watching the final part, only the final part will shine, not the center part.

00:11:45--> 00:12:20

And then every sasaram says we have those who increase the size, especially of the feet, washing the feet and washing the arms. In other words, wash more was not up to here was up to here. And when you wash your feet, you wash past your ankles, so that more of you will shine on the desk. So just taking the do is good performing the fold. But to beautify by increasing the area that you wash of the feet under the arms would increase your beauty that was will increase your beauty on the day of pm on so many other the salary you make for example,

00:12:21--> 00:12:36

the hundreds of ways to make salad is a good way just to make the Salah then there is a way to make it with consciousness, then there is a way to look beautiful when you stand in front of Allah. In this way when you enter the house of Allah allowed to do that beautiful to start there, and so forth and so on.

00:12:37--> 00:12:51

So Allah says Allah Subhanallah Walloon first Muslims, those who follow them in beauty, the accenting, Ravi Allahu Allah says what about the Bharati Allahu Allahu Allah is pleased with them. They do it with beauty, Allah is pleased with

00:12:52--> 00:13:05

what I do, and they are pleased with a loss of a hand over time. What della whom Jonathan tangerine tequilana, Allah has prepared for those who do it with beauty Gardens under which rivers flow,

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

Holly Dean afiya Abbott and they will be in there forever. That photo of him.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

That is the supreme joy and the supreme happiness that allows final prepares for Muslims.

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

There is a very famous Hadith

00:13:28--> 00:13:34

one of the few are highly venerated by say normally will have taught himself about the law or law.

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

And you know the Hadith.

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

It talks about the man who came into the presence of neuroticism in the masjid, in front of all this harbor.

00:13:44--> 00:14:27

And he sat down in front of the Navy society was dressed in white and he didn't have any dust on him from traveling and another none of the Sahaba knew him. And he asked him Nebojsa Salaam three or four questions the first question he asked, he said, as building the annual Islam overhead masala, tell me about Islam and the Prophet told him what Islam is. They say to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me about Eman and Prophet told him this is these are the principles of Eman And then he asked the Prophet Mohammed Tell me about his son. Tell me about you know the Heidi, tell me about your son. And what he didn't answer him. Every son said What is beauty? What is a son? What is

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

goodness? What is virtue? What is well being? Because the word axon encompasses all these words.

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

Goodness, I mean you say

00:14:37--> 00:14:46

Abernathy navdanya hacer una hacer la can mean well being can be in the house can mean beauty can be goodness, can mean all these things.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

Okay, so rest of you with cell phones. We've had enough advance now for the morning. So we foster inshallah for the next hour. So please switch off your cell phones.

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

So what is the Navy safe? I mean, the analyst son,

00:15:05--> 00:15:10

man said, Tell me about your son, the third dimension of Islam

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

the most beautiful dimension of Islam the heartfelt dimension of Islam nevison Salim said, and taboo de la haka and Nikita

00:15:22--> 00:15:32

for a lambda counteroffer in New York. Maybe Sam said, What is your son? What is that with embellishes are Islam, which beautifies you build a house.

00:15:33--> 00:16:05

And you can build a plain four bedroom house, very practical as with the wall around it, and then you can embellish it put lights in front of put lights, you put this kind of stuff on that can we put a garden in front, it's over the top of the roof. And of course, the value goes up immediately. People say well, it's a well looked after house, it's a nice good looking house. And therefore the price goes up. And similarly with your deed, you can have all the goodness but even the beauty with it, your value in the eyes of Allah goes up. So then evisa salaam says it is to worship Allah as if you can see him.

00:16:06--> 00:16:21

For if you cannot see him, then valey sees you. And for me, fasting is the highest form of expression of the sun in the body that which allows the hunter has made found upon us.

00:16:22--> 00:16:32

You know, there's always been an argument of doing the fuqaha about in terms of extending what is greater Salah or fasting. What is the great Alibaba?

00:16:33--> 00:16:41

We should have a choice to fast or to sell out what would be the greater impact what will be the Greater One of the two.

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

And some scholars say that siyam fasting is the greatest Alibaba

00:16:47--> 00:16:55

and they say is the greatest I bought a built on legal principles. They say well, if a woman has her height for example,

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

in the month of Ramadan over a month of Ramadan, she can't fast and she can't pray.

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

But she doesn't have to pay in a fast

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

you're not awake.

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

But she has to pay in a fast but she doesn't have to pay in the salon.

00:17:17--> 00:17:45

So they say guys measurement that's fasting is an ebara which but only allows hunter knows of course and allow us Wagner says Good evening Adam. Allahu Allah. So for inna Julio Ivana GB allows finalises all your Eva da I have given you the values of it. Salah is the key to paradise, you've asked about Salah first. So Salah has got so many rewards, up to 700 times, that's what I make taraweeh

00:17:46--> 00:18:04

but fasting, Allah says, For in the holy, you fast for me. Now why does Allah say you fast for me, and it ties up with this and tab with the luck and Nikita that you make a bada as if Allah can see because fasting is the only a bar that only Allah sees.

00:18:05--> 00:18:10

Only Allah sees your wife, you can't show it to your children can't show to them.

00:18:11--> 00:18:22

Only Allah knows that you are fasting, because fasting itself has many dimensions. The first dimension of fasting is to stay without food and water only Allah knows only Allah knows that Salah people consume x Allah

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

the copy will consume give Sokka hatch, you announce it in fact that you go

00:18:29--> 00:18:39

but fasting is in that a bada which is the closest to the closest expression to express the beauty of Islam.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

And the character of the Sahaba Allah him of Salatu was Salam.

00:18:48--> 00:18:56

So again, as I say Islam focuses on that the activities of a Muslim Imam focuses on the understanding of a Muslim.

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

And the sun emphasizes the beauty of a Muslim the beauty of Islam.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

axon, the word axon.

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

So how allows one loves a sun

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

appears in the Quran nearly 200 times in different forms

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

different derivatives of the word Hassan

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

which means a very important term.

00:19:31--> 00:19:31


00:19:33--> 00:19:37

in many Ayah to the Quran, the word axon is combined with the word taqwa.

00:19:39--> 00:19:51

And we know that allows heart Allah when he speaks about taqwa in the Quran, in relation to fasting, what does he say? I will Edina Harman catabolic maaseiah Kama katiba Allah Levine I mean publikum law law calm that,

00:19:52--> 00:19:57

that all Muslims we have imposed fasting upon you. We've made it compulsory upon you

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

as you may

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

compulsory on those before so that you may develop taqwa.

00:20:05--> 00:20:16

And then in many items upon our last panel combines the stuccoed Allah for example says in Surah Allah I'm Ron, verse and in 72 Lila Dena Sano me know what taco I do love him.

00:20:17--> 00:20:32

And those of you beautify yourselves and your faith and your ibadah for Los Angeles and you develop a lot consciousness for you, there's a great reward. So beauty and tequila goes together

00:20:33--> 00:20:38

allows foreigners a sudra Amanda, verse 93 samata kawasan

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

voila You have been listening and those who are conscious of Allah pantalla and the consciousness of allows vandalizing is in the heart.

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

What I say no and do good and beautify the deen

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

will allow your head Boomer scene

00:20:59--> 00:21:10

allows one of the love those who love beauty. Allah loves those who do things beautiful, even in slaughtering and we know the famous Hadith of the NaVi Salah episode I'm saying that if you slaughter

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

cattle too fast you know kotla UCLA, if you slot a slot is a good thing. You can just slot and cut the throat

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

that is slower in terms of the Sharia in terms of the rules of the show, but allows Pandora says

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

for us in your Tesla beautifying your slot.

00:21:30--> 00:21:34

So beauty always goes with action, allows for talks about the masjid

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

and allows for analysis

00:21:40--> 00:21:40

that you should

00:21:42--> 00:21:58

when you come to magic put on your most beautiful Sir, your most zijn your most beautiful clothes, not your best clothes. Not your newest, the most beautiful clothes that you have in your wardrobe you should put it on we do come to every message of our last hunter whether you

00:21:59--> 00:22:08

put on your best clothes and put on your best scent and look your most physical eyes if you're going to meet your bride for the first time. That's my addition.

00:22:12--> 00:22:17

So allows one of us in the Lok Sabha axon Allah Konishi.

00:22:21--> 00:22:30

ineluctable sn Allah condition allows Juan de la has imposed beauty on all the acts of man made is a Barbie This is acts as a human being.

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

And even in slaughter laws founders impose their duty.

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

So what is taqwa? If taqwa is so closely linked to a son,

00:22:40--> 00:22:44

then taqwa is the beauty of the heart.

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

taqwa is the beauty of the heart.

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

And as I said earlier,

00:22:51--> 00:23:23

episode Solomon says our last panelist says in Allaha la yonder de la sua wa ala Xi mecum Wallach in yonder Illa Paulo become Varma. Allah doesn't look at what you look like. Allah looks at your heart. And now that looks at your deeds. And in the month of Ramadan, we know our last rantala as a direct link with the heart because everything we do comes from the heart. That is why as I said last week, fasting was not imposed upon the Muslims in Makkah

00:23:24--> 00:24:13

when they were ready for fasting because Muslims in Makkah in the first 13 years were already starving. They already had nothing would have been easy for them to fast but allows the handler waited for them to leave NACA allows handler waited for them to reach Medina city full of date palms full of dates was enough food and then Allah imposed fasting. Why? Because fasting has a greater dimension than just the dimension of staying away from food and water. Fasting is there to beautify the heart for Laos handler for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so when we do it, when we beautify it we'll do it not for us we do it for a long span of time. We do it because allows for

00:24:13--> 00:24:18

harm Tila has done the greatest favor you could ever do for any creation of his

00:24:19--> 00:24:22

laughter the Hala canal in Santa Fe Accent

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

Accent is what accent comes again allows one is created as in the most beautiful as two forms.

00:24:33--> 00:24:49

Look in the most beautiful so Pinilla so we have our two allows for hunt Allah that is created as in the most beautiful forms to when we give back to our laws. So when Allah looks at us and looks at our ibadah and now we think that should also be done in the most beautiful is two forms.

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

There is a hadith

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

And of course we know that

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

that which is a certain transfer to his companions.

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

Apart from the Quran in the knowledge of interpretation of the Quran was his character.

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

And the person that benefited most from the character of the Navy SEALs animojis closest companion.

00:25:29--> 00:25:33

The man would enter Paradise after all the NBS entered paradise.

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

The greatest man after the profits of our last panel will not get us to dig deep.

00:25:43--> 00:25:47

And why is he the greatest man who ever lived and walked on the earth after the profits of a Lost Planet?

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

Because of his heart

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

because of his heart,

00:25:54--> 00:26:15

because his heart never wavered, in the face of challenges in the face of when everybody rejected the nervous system he accepted without saying or he and as I said, When Islam was presented to him, there was no question he said eyeshadow La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah honestly.

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

Not so the others.

00:26:18--> 00:26:28

And I may give an example of Allah Karim, Allah wa. Ali, we never say was a boy and I mean, no, I suppose all boys are like that your son is 13 years old, and the prophecy team early.

00:26:29--> 00:26:35

Allah sent me Revelation it was believed in Allah and I'm the Messenger of Allah. So Allah said,

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

00:26:39--> 00:26:47

he said, Allah, Allah asuna all messenger of Allah, leave me I want to think about it first. But don't go home and think about it. I'll come back to you.

00:26:49--> 00:27:10

Oh, if I said this, these things were not present in

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

all these high bar that became false only in in Medina.

00:27:17--> 00:27:25

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

was correct.

00:28:04--> 00:28:09

And then Julian say to the Navy son, this now here comes the Here comes the beautiful part of it.

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Not, not what am I doing? But how am I doing? What

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

Why am I doing this? Is this the question? This is a son, this is beautifying what we do, and that's why when the levy says Allah, Allah Serato Salam.

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

When he sent

In other words, be sincere in your deen in your heart.

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

Yeah, Cameroon Ali, in a little bit of good deeds will be enough. You don't have to do much.

00:31:54--> 00:31:56

If you are sincere in your heart.

00:31:58--> 00:32:00

If you treat your deen with respect,

00:32:04--> 00:32:04


00:32:05--> 00:32:13

it's supposed to be done after that. Because he erased everything it raised in the heart, not in what we do with our hands.

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

Or what we do with our feet what we do with our money. No, it is all about inside us. It's all about art.

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


00:32:25--> 00:32:28

I want to relate to you How do you do? Like narrate often?

00:32:29--> 00:32:31

To show how important the heart is.

00:32:34--> 00:32:38

It's a hadith narrated by Anna's Eminem, Malik Raja la Tron.

00:32:40--> 00:32:48

And a cinematic You know, he was a young man who spent 10 years in the house of the Navy saw Solomon he says that one day they were sitting in the magical Navy

00:32:49--> 00:32:58

and the Navy Sallam said to them, You have law Allah kumana Raja luminaria agenda. And he said, Oh my companions,

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

very shortly

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

a man will

00:33:05--> 00:33:05

come past

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

and he will be a man of gender.

00:33:10--> 00:33:17

So very shortly man came past he was dripping with the water of odo and he had issues in his left hand and he walked past the door.

00:33:19--> 00:33:24

And second day, the same thing that whenever you say to them, your original agenda,

00:33:25--> 00:33:33

and again the men say men came past his face was dripping with Waldo. His beard was dripping with Waldo. And he had his shoes in his left hand.

00:33:35--> 00:33:51

And they looked at the men and you walk past and they say they are exactly the same happen. So after the third day, Abdullayev not even the last. Now Abdullah Ahmed even us there are many a hadith about him both in Bukhari and Muslim if you want to look at him.

00:33:53--> 00:34:34

He had one quality which period not many Sahaba used to fast every day and McTaggart every night. So one day his father, Abdullah, I mean, armor even last came with him to the Navy salsa girassol I'm very unhappy with my son. He Look at me is getting weak. He pray for us every day and he makes tragedy every night. So the Nevis srmc team, no, no, no you should take you should add time to everything. You should get married at time for a wife, you should have a job if time your job, your time for yourself, all these efforts over you, and you must be obedient to your father. Your father says do this you should do it if others don't do it you should do if you say sleep You must sleep

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

and so forth and so on. So that was Abdullah Muhammad at last. So after him nominally last because of his character, his nature and the things he did. He thought to himself, I must find out what is this man do that the Navy is a Salam said he's a man of gender diversity. A man of gender Suhana Lidl so much I fast every day I make casual every night. Nobody's never said to me. Oh Abdullah man of gender. What Who is this man? He just walks past and he goes to me. That's it.

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

So he goes to the man he says to the man, brother, my father threw me out of the house, can I stay with you for three days only I'm going to look for a place for me. So the mindset team, he was telling a flip, obviously, because he wanted to watch and see what this man was doing. So he went with a man, the man said, no problem can stay with me for three nights. So he stayed with a man for three nights. And of course, being a man who was up every night that was his way of doing things. He was king to watch to see what this man does. So at night, first night, he watches the main

00:35:31--> 00:35:46

man doesn't get up for tahajud nothing the man goes to sleep off the shine, he wakes up for fudger. But he notices during the night this when he only returns himself in his sleep. He mentions our last name, man, you turn a nuisance handle with 10 says a lot.

00:35:47--> 00:35:48

That's all.

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

And the man who would go to work in the morning would come home, you would go to the magic for fudge. It will come on next door, no magic answer Melanie Venetia and good sleep.

00:35:59--> 00:36:02

So after three days, after like Norma went to him,

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

and said to him

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

shukran very much.

00:36:08--> 00:36:40

But Abdullah said, You know, I came I must tell you, you know, father didn't throw me out of the house. I just told you a white lie, because I wanted to see what you do. The man said, Why do you want to use spider? And he said, No. I wanted to see what you do because the Navy so Solomon said to us that you are a man of gender. And I wanted to find out what have you done, that you had already been given gender on the dunya Subhan Allah all of us have to wait for the good clarity and ease of genda in the afternoon except of course the 10 people but do you all know visa Salam is included you

00:36:42--> 00:36:51

sushis Mauer Illa Mara, etc to health is what you see is what you get. He said, You know, this is me. This is me. So Abdullah Omar,

00:36:52--> 00:36:59

he said to himself, no, but this man he does not come in how can the Prophet see the thing is a man of absolutely nothing.

00:37:00--> 00:37:05

So the man he walks away the mango tea was disappointed. So the man called him back and said, Okay.

00:37:07--> 00:37:10

There's some things that I can I want to share with you.

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

Not things that I do, but who I am, the person that I am, he says

00:37:16--> 00:37:21

and Neela as you do free enough Celia had in mineral muslimeen arratia he said number one

00:37:23--> 00:37:28

I legit Phoenix fantasy. I don't find in my heart.

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


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

reason to cheat a fellow Muslim?

00:37:38--> 00:37:48

I have no inclination in my art to ever if I if I do business with another Muslim, or another person to already say I'm going to cheat you.

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

I'm going to do this and I'm going to do that no.

00:37:52--> 00:37:57

So cheating is not one of my qualities now artistry and cleanup of cheating offense.

00:37:59--> 00:38:09

When he said well, I should have done an Ella Hayden Otto lohia. And he said number two, I have no envy in my heart, no hazard in my heart.

00:38:10--> 00:38:15

For what it is, I have no hazard in my heart for Allah given to other people.

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

So Allah gave somebody

00:38:19--> 00:38:26

a call can't and Allah gives Allah gives me a can Allah give somebody else a Karthik maybe custom million Rand or one

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

as a Mashallah brother from the LA LA County.

00:38:31--> 00:38:33

A Medina Matera Vika

00:38:34--> 00:38:41

had this. After all, you quote him the verse, Allah Subhana. Allah tells us that you should show the wealth which Allah gives you.

00:38:45--> 00:38:48

The hand if Allah says, proclaim the wealth which had bestowed upon you

00:38:51--> 00:38:55

don't be a rich man and live like a poor man. No show.

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

I mean, don't be pompous.

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

And don't be don't brag, but live according to your income.

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

And he feels like a champion to everything else.

00:39:10--> 00:39:20

In America, hi. My whole family was great men. halifa one of the four people who established the mothership. He lived in Medina.

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

He lived in the city of the Nafisa, Salah.

00:39:24--> 00:39:28

He was imbued with a culture with the habits with the traditions of the people of Medina.

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

And yet he was always well when he sat with his students. He was the best dressed amongst everybody in the room.

00:39:37--> 00:39:40

Not only that, he sat on silk cushions

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

and he said, just cushions cotton cushion

00:39:46--> 00:39:54

net of a Kissinger Sydney, he said on soak cushions and the students are surprised you know what to say to you know, you are great scholar.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

People like you, you know, they don't sit on

00:40:02--> 00:40:05

He says he's smiling he says unless he's not around

00:40:07--> 00:40:31

and have Rama Xena tala ality after July but he says, oh I'll make her arm the beautiful thing which doesn't make halaal for servants who will make her the beautiful things which are laws of 100. Allah made halaal free service and we ask everything. What is the user say Rama Athena for dunya Hashanah, Allah give me the most beautiful things of this world. And we're not like easy to use and I don't want it.

00:40:36--> 00:40:55

They understood the deal. You see what the difference is between us and them. They understood what beauty they understood the deal Subhanallah and that is the that is the challenge that we have is to understand the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala so the man said I have no hazard in my heart.

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

for dollars given to us

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

and finally he said

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

the same thing I have is

00:41:06--> 00:41:09

lamb a bit dog in an alarm a bit Davina?

00:41:11--> 00:41:12

Allah muslimin

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

he says when I go when night comes

00:41:22--> 00:41:26

I have no ill feeling in my heart for any Muslim.

00:41:27--> 00:41:39

I remove all ill feelings and hatred and dislike from my heart. For any Muslim no matter what is done for me during the day when nightfalls when the sun says hello as it goes away with us.

00:41:44--> 00:41:50

That is the beauty of the heart. That is when you will not allow someone that says jambalaya and foul man holla Barun 11

00:41:53--> 00:41:53

petrosa hub

00:41:56--> 00:42:04

This is only this a hobby. You mentioned the heart Mohamed Salah Allah is Allah Subhana Allah, our de towards these enemies and those who harm the minute.

00:42:08--> 00:42:22

Athletes Deena get fixed. Hamelin Colleen said, Be sincere in your deen and little good deeds will be good for you, for the good enough for you, be enough for you, to suffice you in front of Allah, whose final word

00:42:24--> 00:42:34

so allowes harder says, Shadow Ramadan and levy on Zilla field for an orderliness urbinati min alhuda word for

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

Alzheimer. This is the month of Ramadan, we have revealed to your Mohammed Salah, the Quran,

00:42:44--> 00:43:04

the Quran which is the epitome of beauty. So hydrophobic, beauty in language is an expression, beauty and ideas, accidental causes, the most beautiful as narrations are found in the Quran. Surah Yusuf Allah talks about as the most beautiful asset, the most beautiful of talks about the beauty of the surah

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

Allah, Allah speaks in beautiful terms.

00:43:11--> 00:43:28

As smell husana the names of Allah, Allah are not as Names of Allah. They're not noble names. No, I refer to them as Beautiful Names, the Beautiful Names. So Ramadan is the highest form of expression of the beauty of a Muslim.

00:43:30--> 00:43:41

Because everything he does, he does it with a taqwa of Allah. Everything he does it beautifies normally we just do it in Ramadan. No, we beautify what we do.

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

So May Allah Subhan, Allah given Sharla that we imbibe, and we drink in the spirit of Ramadan

00:43:52--> 00:43:58

and see the beauty of the hora so always mentioned to my students, to my Jama

00:43:59--> 00:44:00


00:44:05--> 00:44:07

we need to read the Quran for Baraka

00:44:08--> 00:44:15

is no doubt about it. Mr. Santa speaks in many a hadith of reading the Quran reciting the Quran

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

but as I said

00:44:23--> 00:44:29

in so many areas of the Quran a lot of swana talks about I find out that the double una hora

00:44:31--> 00:44:40

Do you not contemplate or do you not do research on the beginning of understanding the Quran is to learn the land which

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

is to learn the language of Arabic. Without the language of Arabic. The Quran will not reveal its beauty to us as Muslims and without sitting and listening to the history of Muhammad

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

A salami will never know the beauty of Mohamed salah and his character

00:45:08--> 00:45:37

we must know and we must learn. And when we know and learn we must transfer that knowledge and then refer back to the clip that a brother sent me about the Kenyan air hostess who speaks about the life as an air hostess. And now she travels the world as an air hostess. And now she has money to buy the best fashions. She had the money to buy the best fashions in Paris when she landed in London in New York wherever she went

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

and ate nine times a year she was on planes that took her judge from Kenya to Makkah to Jeddah. And she would listen to them reciting the salvia la Vega, la mala Bay club bakerella Sheree Kala Kala Bay, and she had no idea what it meant.

00:45:54--> 00:46:01

She had so many Muslims working with her on as flight attendants, but not a single one told her about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam

00:46:02--> 00:46:17

Not a single one has introduced him to use it to Islam. But she said she was never happy in all the things that she had. All the brand names that she bought in all the great cities of the world, couldn't give her the happiness. And then she made Islam

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

and she said when she made this lamudi CIMMYT, she made Mohammed salah

00:46:23--> 00:46:27

and she starts crying in this clip. When she speaks about the Navy's

00:46:28--> 00:46:30

what what a what a man he was.

00:46:31--> 00:46:45

She talks about his relationship with his wives. She talks about his relationships with the women which no other Prophet he says she talks about the Quran, the only the only divine book that addresses both women and men separately.

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

A lot this is bizarre Amina Simon

00:46:50--> 00:46:54

holidays is the believing women meaning me not

00:46:55--> 00:47:18

separately individually, and she cries and she says we are the Muslims. Why don't we introduce this great man to us so that we can also fall in love with him. So if you can also invite this character so we can also follow him. She says you said with his big secret with his great joy in your life is great man in your lives. You don't share it with anybody.

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

And really it It struck me so hard that he is this is who we are.

00:47:26--> 00:47:31

We would we would make a big thing about the navvy salam once a year and then

00:47:32--> 00:47:36

we'd be like a Pepsi Cola this all God The fish is out oh god

00:47:38--> 00:47:44

and we do it only amongst ourselves. We don't take the message to our neighbors to our friends to our workers

00:47:46--> 00:47:49

hospital could you know Muhammad is no Mohammed was

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

for me to tell you something about him

00:47:54--> 00:48:07

Salalah Addison so these are the things and if your art is right he will do it. Only the art is not it will be free you will be afraid of yourself because you don't understand yourself. And so you need to read

00:48:08--> 00:48:30

and say you need to come to lectures or to go to lectures to listen to these promises some somehow lost handle inshallah. Be with us in the month of Ramadan. Well also I'm lucky that we clear in the hearts in the month of Ramadan right up to the end because shaytan is always the visa Samson shaytan runs in the veins, like your blood runs in your veins so fast.

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

It's always there to interest to intervene.

00:48:35--> 00:48:40
