Aloha Serrano tala
allows panatela speaks to us in the Holy Quran Allah says Rahim
call in contento Hepburn a la familia oni Viva como la la comme de Nova come while la her food Rahim.
And then Ibiza Salah Mr. mega Duran, I said this to you before the famous two out of the Navy salatu salam ala India Celica hubback Wahab Burma you have a book in your car rebo ala hoerbiger. Here, the gelato crumb, both the verse of the Quran and the Hadith from the Navy. So Salah deals with the question of love.
And of course, as you know,
our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is a relationship of love
is a relationship of not just not like muhabba or mawatha it is relationship with the word use is hope. Hope means in contempt or heck bonala if you say you love Allah, it means that it's unconditional love.
And it is a love which accompanies us on the journey through life, from the day that we born until the day that we are, after all, when a person dies, what do we say? We say in Lila he were in La La Jolla, from the moment that we are born. And till the moment that we die, we say that we are on a journey
from Allah to Allah, that's always the journey. It's a round trip, you come from Allah and you go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the journey is a journey of love, it's it's nothing else. And for this journey, you need three things. You need a riding animal,
you need a saddle to sit on.
And you need a ride to ride the animal
and the Beast of love
your animal that you have, you must have an animal to ride on. And you must have a saddle. If you don't have a saddle, you fall off the horse and you'll the journey will come to an end. And of course, a journey I was without a rider is not a journey at all. And this journey that we're going to speak about today is a journey that has its moments. It is a journey that sometimes is tiring. It's a journey that need sometimes a break or a holiday. But it's a journey that we are supposed to use first be conscious of all the time and that is called taqwa the consciousness of a loss. Because the opposite of taqwa is heedlessness when we don't care, we don't think about Allah. We think about
Allah, maybe one hour a week or two hours a week, or when we are sick or when a calamity hits us. But the consciousness is not there. In fact, we live in a world weedless we live in a world where we seldom consider our last panel down.
And if you consider this question of Lavina there was an advert that I saw some time ago where this
it's an advert about about visiting Italy. Tourism advert. The advert goes that this little this guy on the farm, he fell in love with a
girl that Italian girl that he saw on the TV
and he sees love for this girl was so this is part of that was so intense that he he wanted to learn Italian because he saw you only have one shot. You'll have to learn the language very well. Because how could he interact?
If he goes to Italy to meter, how he's going to speak to him, how he's going to interact with her, and he learned the Italian language.
And this shows us
the intensity that love can have.
We For example, we say that we love Allah.
And yet the language that the beloved speaks was in we don't understand
the language that Allah speaks to us in we don't understand.
We don't even make an effort to learn that language. In fact, we lazy is plain lazy, there's nothing else.
But we say we love allows
all of us to say we love Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you can't tell a Muslim he doesn't love Mohamed Salah Salah. You can't tell him that you can tell him anything. But you can't say that to him.
Yet we have no idea of what he said.
We don't understand the words that he said.
We don't understand the revelation three seat of course we know it in English.
We know it in translation. But imagine you meet
a person that you love very much. And that person speaks English in only you only speak Afrikaans. It's a dead end relationship from the beginning. She doesn't understand you and you say to me, because then you don't understand her when she says I love you to complete. It's a non starter right from the beginning. So
of course there are lovers and there are lovers.
There are lovers that there is love which is which is destructive love. It's called in Arabic English. And the word the hash
tag refers to a kind of vine. No, these vines that twist around the trees to surround plants, a vine the twists around a young plant and kills the plant. And that kind of love was a love which is experienced by by
the lady who fell in love with with an abuse of Allah salatu salam Zola, she had that kind of love kodesh I love that strangled and strangled him. And he landed in jail. And she was not considered to be a truthful woman by her husband anymore.
that's one kind of love. And then there is another kind of love. I such a strong love that,
that it ends ended for that person with so many gifts from allows, both in this world and the aft. An example I can think of is the example of Solomon, the Persian.
As you can hear from his name, he was a Persian. He was born in Persia, Iran today. And he was a religious man.
And when he became an adult, when he became an adult,
oh, it was supposed to be Baraka.
He was just either
social model faricy was
the hackers Love, love for what, what was the love that he had. The love that he had was, he had a love for truth. That was his. That was his complete love. The only thing I loved was he loved the truth, and used to ask people to point him in the direction of righteous people. We could meet righteous people, and he left his native Iran pleasure in search of truth and in search of righteous people. And whenever we made righteous people who spend time with them, and learn from them.
And then one day he was in a caravan traveling, and the caravan was captured by pirates, and he was taken as a slave. And where would he go and before he was taken as a slave, he had met a very pious Christian man who told him that a prophet will come and that prophet will come in a city called yathrib. And the Prophet prophet will have certain signs that will tell you is a prophet. And since our man heard this,
his only mission was to meet this new prophet
muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam. And as Allah did it, he was captured as a slave he was enslaved. And he was taken to Medina but he was very I when he reached Medina people say this is Medina. This is yathrib it's ohana lime in the city of the Prophet. So the first time we went to the Nabi sallallahu sallam, he said, there'll be Salam.
Yes, updates for you. This is Sadiq Khan.
And he watched what the Navy will do with the dates. And he saw the numbers in it from the dates, that'd be lifted dates. And he said, that is the first time
that I was taught about this method.
Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that he would not eat charity. He would not take charity. That was the first time. So the next time he went again to the Nabi sallallahu sallam, and he said, Yeah Rasul Allah. This is Heidi. Yeah. He brought again date and he said, this is Heidi. Yeah, this is a gift from me, and the Prophet eight immediately from the dates, and he said, martial law, this is the second son. This is a sign that was told to me that he will not eat from charity, but he will eat from a gift which you give to him. And he has satisfied these two basic rules. And then one day, then Abby's club slipped off his shoulder, and he saw the bottom he saw the seal of profit load on
the back of the New Sun, as it was described to him by this Christian, pious man in Iraq. And he realized that yes, this was confirmed. This was the messenger of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, and he declared his kalama eyeshadow La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah Azza wa sallam. By this stage, some man was a slave he was enslaved the man who bought him
he was working for that man. And the Master said to sell man, I will release you if you plan on 300
date palm trees and when every single one of the 300 date palm trees, bay fruit, you will have your freedom.
So someone planted 300 a day palm trees.
And after a few months, all of the date palm trees bore fruit except one
except one tree.
So as Martha said to him,
the deal was 300 trees 300 trees must fruit must be in fruit, and then only when you get your freedom. So So mangoes and Elise are allowed is Allah and Omar was present. And salmaan say Solomon says, Yasser Allah, what am I going to do? What must I do? I planted the 300 trees 299 as fruit only one tree hasn't borne fruit here.
So I'm not even
standing the same as the federal law. I planted that tree. I wanted to help you. And I planted that tree. So then I have some say that is the reason the children bear fruit because the deal was a man was that only the trees that he would plant and then every summer he planted the tree. And within a few months, a tree both fruit and salmaan got his freedom. So this was the love He traveled from Iran, all over the world as captured as a slave and eventually met in Ibiza wasallam during his lifetime, and what did he say about salmon? Remember, he was a Persian he was a he was a he was an immigrant. He was not from the Mojave rune, nor from the answer. He was not an Arab. He was a
foreigner basically. He was a foreigner complete foreigner. What did he say about it? Maybe Salam said wamena Beit prophets are some set about some man. He is one of my family.
He's of that is Bates. Like Ayesha, like Fatima, like Addy, Adele Beatty became of the ideal bait, meaning the family of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And, of course, we know someone very solemn, promising that they will you will be in paradise. So ultimately that is where he's loved lady, the love for the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and maimunah is another story. My mother wife, one of the wives of the Nabi sallallahu sallam, she, after 30 years maybe have already passed away. And after 30 years
when she was about to pass away, they asked what is your last wish? Oh, my Mona, what do you what do you want me? What do you want us to do for you? And she said,
I want to be taken me to the place where I first lived within a visa allowed.
That was a wish. Look at that love.
Today after city as you bet you did for for 20 years. 10 years, your wife is already married to another man panola. Never mind going back to Macy's where you want to go back to the place where you love to do that first as
part of the deal. What did she want?
Of course, they couldn't marry again, they all move up meaning she wanted to be taken back to the place where she first set up home within a B Salalah cell and she died there and she was buried there.
So Hannah, she died he was buried. That was the kind of love that people had not only strangers, foreigners who came from strange lands like some man or another bucket. They were with him. They were Arabs. They're from his tribe. That way.
Family, some of them.
So the Navy sort of made notice there and love makes no distinction. True Love makes no distinction between race and color and creed. When it when we seek out the beloved one, then it would make all kinds of sacrifices we know a
person will make all kinds of sacrifices in order to be with the one that he loves. So
and when the nivetha salam speaks about
our journey, the journey of a Muslim towards allows to handle orders and sell I'm saying, he says, law you know, I had to come.
A visa Salam says, none of you truly believe what you believe is not complete law. You may not have as many a hadith that starts with these words law you know,
that none of you have true faith.
Hacker you have him bully or he may you have bullied until you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. And BRAVIA means instead means another person that means anybody that you should love for others what you love for yourself. If you love something, you should share it.
And also want others to have what you have.
And you will not have faith in Allah, unless you have that attitude in life unless you develop that and you must develop it. The journey of love for life is a developmental journey. It's not something that you say today it's going to happen and tomorrow inshallah I need to be like that. Now, generosity and love is something that you inculcate in your children from small and we will each hour talk a little bit about Oregon inculcate this love in our children from small
and of course, the other sign of love is
of the alarm of how easy it
is to follow.
of the Nabi sallallahu Sallam
is to try and emulate
the character of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
and that is why he is called.
He still called the friend of Allah.
Or some other name Sahaba one day was discussing what is the best name to call him? What do we call him? Cali Lola Sadie cola. And then Ibiza, Salim came out and said no, I'm habibollah I am the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That was his macabre. That was the status that he was the he was the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
this this love there's only one right way of loving Allah and loving his prophet Mohammed says Allah
because we're all say we love Allah. We love the Prophet, but he's the only one theoretical was the key. There's only one way of loving.
The prophet SAW Selim and allows panna cotta.
And then is described Allah in the Quran, it is nothing which is hidden, it's nothing which is which is foreign, it is not something which you have to look for and to seek for. Allah tells us how.
Because in the time of the Navy, sometimes they were people who said we love Allah. And then Allah revealed the verse of the order for our
we are lost or the rest is called.
in contempt of a boon Allah, Allah says, Oh hamato those people who say that they love Allah, give them this message to encourage them to hipbone Allah. If you say that you love Allah,
God, then you should follow me. Follow Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah, that is the road to the love, like this Harbor was like Solomon was like maimunah was, it
will affect me only and if you follow Mohammed alone, what will happen to you,
you will come along, because ultimately, that is the reciprocation that you require. If you say you love Allah, what do you want in return? You want Allah to love you.
And you can only have that. If you follow the Sunnah of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we know this was not something for him and he says, Adam says, there are too few Kuma in Temasek to be Hema Kitab Allah He was so nothing that I've left for you two things I left for you, my son, and I left for you. If you hold on to these two things, you will never go astray.
Never will you go astray. And so then it says Allah says
Do you have beaver qumola that's the first gift from Allah. And secondly, we are filled up from the pneumococcus. And Allah says, I will forgive your sins.
I will forgive your sins.
And ultimately that is what we want in the dunya. When we learn a date, when you get out, what do we want from Allah? What do we ask for every day? We sit and say 1000 times 2000 times 3000 times as the last, the last. The whole purpose is to get forgiveness from Allah subhanahu wa.
And forgiveness is something that is both difficult and easy.
I mean, if you look at the life, as I said, and when I look at the life of Abu sufian,
Abu Sufyan was was
he had committed every single crime that would make him the best candidate to go to jahannam. Right. Did the Prophet want to kill the Prophet killed Muslims with the sward oppressed Muslims in south of the NaVi Salaam. When he spoke he did all the things that one would say, well, there is no salvation for this man.
Yet to the end of his life was it never say about him? That is a solemn said Abu sufian will be saved. feitian Alexander
Hassan said about the Luciferian he will be the chief, he will be the leader of the heroes of Jannah.
A man wanted to kill him, he's going to be the lead of the heroes in Ghana. promises are promised in Jeddah on the dunya and that is why allows for handleless tells us in the Quran.
For those who have committed the violence of sins,
mantapa Amina Muhammad Ramadan saw the hunt
for your bud guru lo see it passionate,
allows for 100 essays and those who make Toba and believe and do good deeds
for what happened to them. Allah will change the bad deeds into good deeds.
And this is such an important point about Islam and about Allah subhanaw taala the justice of allows
them no persons good deeds go unnoticed by Allah, even if he's a pagan, even if he's whatever religion he may be, allows for how the recognizes every single good deed of every single person. Because if you're not a Muslim, you will be rewarded for your good deeds in the dunya and inshallah, if you're if you're a movement and a Muslim, your rewards for your goodness you will get on the day of karma. And therefore, when Abu sufian Fatima was one day running in the road in Makkah, and she felt she was a small girl. And she fell in you know, girls that children run and they fall in these collections of they're full of dust because they were not tolerated Rosie and atmosphere on campus
and he picked up and he dusted off and he wiped the tears
and he spoke nicely to a kind of sweet words. And she ran back to her father Mohammed Salam and maybe some say to her what happened
to Abby, I fell I was running and I felt this is yeah you scratch and full of dust and what happened who picked you up and who doesn't you and she said Abu sufian
and as I said you know we would say to our children you know when you see that man again in the street, even if you die and you don't go near him and you tell him not to touch you because he's your father's enemy he wanted to kill me. You want to do this to me wanted to do that in what is an AVI to sort of louder Salah he put up his hands and he said a llama that and Sahaja be Sophia
v San Jose our la Don't forget this good deed of Abu Sophia
was a pagan he was a he was an idol worship. There was no chance that the Prophet good everything they would even become Muslim nevermind go to general yet the be reflected the mercy of Allah. He reflected the attitude of Islam that you cannot
deny a non Muslim the good deeds that they do. You must appreciate it. You must be grateful for it because allows for how to recognize this all good deeds of every single person. And that's why our duties as Muslims are multiplied 700 times in the month of Ramadan so much I love the love loves us to do good deeds so it's important for us to to train our children in doing good.
There is a saying of
Abdullah Al Assad said
happy to Allah adna ecosystem
He said, Take care of your children when it comes to Salah
while we do,
why we do and behave,
and train them to be good,
train them to be good for internal feira. Because goodness is a habit.
Goodness is a habit. It's a habit that we learn from our mothers and our fathers and our family.
And so we need to train our children to be good.
But this journey of goodness
is a journey that needs provisions. I said, you need a riding animal, you need a saddle, you need a rider. But the fourth most important thing you need for this journey. Back to all of this journey of love, is you need to have provisions and one of the provisions of this journey. The provisions of the journey are spelled out last week, when I gave you the hadith of gibreel. When jabril came and taught the nebia salaam the deen taught, asked him what is Islam? What is he man? What is sand, and finally asked him about the laws the signs of the last hour. And I spoke to my son in law afterwards and he said, You made everybody scared in the Juma last week.
What I didn't tell you I warned you I said I'm not gonna just be afraid on my own. I'm gonna share it with you. When I told you the last sentence of the hour, but when I went home and I thought about this, I thought this is this is quite strange, you know? Because I say to you the last what some of the signs of the last hour will be that
tall buildings will be built by the shepherds of the desert. And Nevis Hassan said they will make holes through the mountains in Makkah.
And the Nevis Hassan said When this happens, the shadow of the last day will fall over the dune In
other words, the sun of life we'll be setting on the world
that it will be a sign of the signs of piano
So I was thinking about this and I thought to myself, but this is very strange because
nobody's nice a certain specific calorie for to Makkah.
And I'm sure in your shoe and we also know the show that the all of Makkah read these ahaadeeth
and they knew that an Elisa salon I said that when they are going to make tunnel through the mountains of Makkah. And when we're going to both buildings, elemental juggle taller than the mountains of Mecca, Mecca mountains are not very tall. And today we know the clock tower is taller than the mountains and
they knew that they were actually
the prophecy of the NaVi salatu salam I was wondering if some of them didn't say let's not both tall buildings. And let's please not make holes in the mountains because that is going to mean that Yama will come near so as long as we don't do that, Mashallah we will stay clear of them. Yes, it was built
yet it was booked.
It confirmed the prophecies of Mohammed said Why did they didn't do it? How Why did they do it? Because you can't frustrate
the plans have allows Hamilton
even if you don't want to do it, if allowed to have them written it for the dunya and Mohamed Salah might say it you cannot frustrate the plans of a loss no matter who you are what your
plans are for not like a joke somebody told me the other day the machete said Malik mode came to this man knocked on the door and say to the man I've come to take your room.
So the man said Ah Welcome to another moto themselves. It's very strange, you know? First time I come to a man's house he says welcome. So the man says Welcome Welcome. Come inside motherboard says look I don't have time much time you know I've come to take your job. This is my job. You know, my boss has saved me and you know I have to do whatever he tells me to
take it easy man. Don't worry you got your job. You're going to do your job but come inside for a cup of tea you know have a cup of tea with me first.
Men can say okay fine, you know I'll have a cup of tea it's a joke. Remember it's not serious.
So don't say that just said Malik mo drinks tea You know?
And then ask you what kind of tea drinks are either not
so big is not a motive. What he does is he put some sleeping He put a sleeping tablet in the tea. So my remote thinks the tea in my remote falls asleep. And and while Mark mode is sleeping this man looks for the list. He finds the list
have names. So he sees Oh, my name is on top of the list.
So he set himself while he's sleeping. So he took a pen whenever he did Coco. And he took out his name at the top and he wrote his name at the bottom of the list.
So while Mark wakes up and says to him, you know,
from the beginning of time until now, this is the first time I'm drinking tea. Number two is the first time I've had such a good sleep, I've never had such a good sleep. Mashallah. So now that I've woken up, I want to, I thought to myself, you know, I must do you a favor.
I'm going to put the names at the bottom of the list at the top of the list.
So, what is it? What does it say? It tells you that you cannot frustrate
the plans of Allah subhana wa what you do and how you do it, even to bribe ballot mode, somehow or other allow standardized game to, while long within Missouri allows for endless plans in his life and everything he does, always comes to fruition. And that is why what Mohammed Al Salam told us, and whatever you prophesied will come to fruition. Despite what we may think, or what we may do, it will happen.
So I'm gladness Oh talks about goodness. And he says, goodness is a habit that you cultivate.
And you know, whenever people speak about children and the development of children, then they always talk about
the fact that we should encourage our children and train our children to make Salah from day one.
Because nobody says on a train your children from seven, and from 10 years old, you should give them a hiding if they don't make Salah. So that three years is vital three years, and yet all the other men agree that it is not compulsory for a child who is not adult yet. So capacity. The child doesn't make sense. That's fine, but we have to train them. But there is something which is found on the child.
One of the five pillars, one of them is called them the child
Zakah is not follow. Mr. Boucher theory says Zakah is funneled on wealth.
Abu hanifa Of course, it's valid on the conscience of the individual. So for the for hanifa. Odin adult is the cuttable only adults basica. But Mr. Musharraf, he says, if a child has money, that is more than the nisab
the soccer is funneled on the money, not on the chat.
Because Mr. Mousavi says many people, what they would do is they put they will put their money, the name of the child on the savings account of the child. And somehow, maybe they will use it as a ruse to get away from things. Such as a car isn't incumbent on the money of the child, if the child has money, the child must pay the car.
And if the child doesn't pay the car, it is the guardian of the child says emotions. The father or the mother wave is at all must pay the car off of the child.
it is important for us to train children from small about the payment of Zika. I find it difficult to teach big people to play soccer. They've grown up 30 years or 40 years of not playing soccer or 20 years, suddenly now they must pay tax to the government and them as a soccer. And you see people give you a kind of a loop to say.
But if we train the children from school and my son told me the other day and he said to me, he asked me about his owns a car and he asked me about certain things that you need to work out about his car. And I said to him, you know and he said to me that you know homicide go about and I said the first thing you must do is to establish a day when your car becomes fuddled upon you.
Because remember, 12 months must pass every time you must play soccer. So 12 months Come on a particular day.
You must designate a particular day. On that day, you will pay your unfailingly, like if Saul says you must submit your form by the 28th of February whatever the date is.
You and your accountant will have sleepless nights to meet that deadline. And I said you must have sleepless nights to meet that deadline with a loss. Assume I said it's on the first of Ramadan. I said mine is on the first of Ramadan. They just seem to make it on the first day of Ramadan.
And I said this is what you do.
I said I know it was
Children and savings accounts only children under
You sit with your children at the table on the first of Ramadan, and you get the savings books on the table. And you train them from small. Not only that, they must take out the two and a half hours in which they themselves measure them as well cut out themselves. They must go to the bank, I said they must come back with the two and a half percent, they must put on the table and us father and children, you find the poor people when you go to the second front office, and you take them to pay the sucker.
Why? Because Allah, Allah when he mentioned, Sal, I mentioned
Salah to soccer, we never mentioned soccer, the one cannot go without the other one.
You cannot make several things. You cannot train your children to make Salah. And you don't join into Mexico to give Zika
because without Zika we don't have any economy. We can run the community. We can't help the poor. We can't learn generosity. We don't learn about what wealth is your children, they learn what it means to work for money, and what money is the leg the significance of money. Today, the children learns that the significance of money is what I am is mine, it's in the bank, I can do with it what I want.
It's my money. People also tell you, I do with my money, what I want to do with my money.
And even when they die when they're going to die, and they do their work. They don't tell you, it's my money.
But when you teach your children to play soccer, they learn that nothing belongs to them. They learn that when they came into the dunya, you teach them like that, when you are born, my son, you came into the world even without an epi
And when you leave this world you leave with nothing. So whatever you accumulate in this world, comes from our mind belongs to Allah. And when you leave this world, you have to give it back to Allah. And Allah will give it to you is in the proportions that allows Mandala as designated in the Quran, you can decide on that Why not? Because doesn't belong to you
only belongs to Allah then you can give to your children, whatever you want to give in whatever proportions you want to give. But once you die, but yours anymore. So training for Salah is very important. training for soccer, I think today's was even more important. Because we have a skewed idea of money.
Everything is based on money. Everything is about money. Ultimately, friendships are built on money. Friendships are lost, and many marriages are made on money and marriages are destroyed on money. He said she said she was going to work to pay the bond.
He said he was going to take his money and pay for a car and buy the food.
Tom I know I know all the stories, I know all the all the variations of what she said she was going to do and what he said he's going to do. And one day she wakes up and he says Why must I pay the bond, I'm not going to pay the bond anymore. You know, you treat me like this and you treat me like that. Or he says but you earn more than me You must have by the middle. So you know I'm gonna buy the medium, and three days later.
That's it. That's a why because we did not train our children about the result. Where is a comes from, what the responsibilities of husband and wife is what money means, and somebody will follow. You have to train your children from school. You have to train them to love what they do. And therefore when we when we read about the NaVi salatu salam and we read how we interacted with children.
We know that he
he taught us the template
on how to teach our children the deen of Allah.
Let's take a take Salah as in as an example.
We know that Salah is not required for a child to make.
But a child needs to be trained. Now, as I said from the ages of seven to the age of 10.
And alswamitra made it like that because when a child is at that age between the ages of seven and 10 you as a father or a mother have everything in your favor.
What is in your favor,
in your favor is
that the child has got no desires of its own.
child has good no animal desires. He's got no other desires except maybe to play with a tablet
or with your phone
Otherwise the child is a pure tabula is a clean slate, you can write on him.
And thirdly, the name is Hassan says guru mo Lu, then you know
that every child has got a book in desire to make Salah.
Every child, Allah has made us Our fitrah is to serve allows.
is born with a natural inclination to serve Allah
to be obedient to Allah.
So you have an open door to your child.
we need to exploit this open door that we have to the child.
There is a hadith of jabbing me. Samira, Java, me Suma was a small boy.
He says one day when further to the masjid
and then it was leading up to the Salah.
He followed the who
he went home with the Prophet Sal, he said, I went home.
And he said, as I was walking, there is a salami you touch my cheek like this, rub my cheek. And he stood up my my head. And he said, you know, whenever the Prophet touched my cheek, I could smell he, there was a there was a kind of
smell that came from the hands of the pizza that I never smelled before that no after in my whole life. So every time I wanted him to touch me to wrap my head in order for me to get that smell from the Navy, so last summer, and he said I used to go to the masjid, just so I could greet and Avi Salah, so I could add the smell from the hands of the Nabi sallallahu sallam. And he said that made me not only love when evisa but made me love to go to the masjid to make Salah, not like a letter that I read many years ago about a young boy who wrote a letter to his local newspaper and said, I want to thank the elders in the community for burying our beautiful messages.
I will defend the elders in the community for opening all the modalities fast to learn.
But I want to say
and he says he described them as just beautiful, big messages.
And he said, but it's one thing I want to tell the elders is that these massages you bought is irrelevant.
It is no attraction for me as a child.
When I walk into the market is 100 messages outside that says don't do this. And don't do that. And don't do this and don't make that and don't do this.
He says I want to tell the adults that when you borrow the magic, you must think about the people are going to use them as CIT
and you must particularly think about the young people are going to use them as chicks.
What do we do in the masjid to attract young people to come to the masjid? Just that is what can I be Salaam that is what they used to do.
And there is another
of when the navies are allowed to sell their meaning. And I'm just taking to the record I could think of when the Navy conquered Mecca to show his relationship with children and how he trained children and our children came to love him when the Navy conquered Makkah, we know the story in Ibiza until Bilbao got on top of the Kaaba and make other
so they were these 10 pagan boys you know, our boys are small boys
for 10 years old, a very naughty
between say ages of seven and 10 the uncontrollable but it's that they like them, you should leave them, let them be who they are. They can't get naughty or they know what they are.
So there were these 10 pagan boys who when
Billa was making a gun on top of the Kaaba, they started poking fun at you not sure enough, when he said you know when he made made the other you repeatedly after him but in in their own voices and in their own style and that they are on the Kaaba, no children don't mind what they do.
So the narissa Salah munia done was finished reading Solomon said Bring them here bring me bring those children bring them to me.
So the Navy says Salaam say to them, each of them. Okay, now copy below.
Copy the way you copied him now copy him again. How do you make a copy to pagan boys do not Muslim
So each and every one of them, try to make it on the way. They were poking fun at below. But there was one boy
Dora, when he made the ad, and the professor Sam said, ha, you are the voice that I heard, I would say to you, because there was a particular reason why the Navy called all of them, I want all of them to make them all of the intimate guy that
you He was my boy.
On the 10 he narrates the story, it's gonna be so sensitive. You are the You are the voice. So he thought, Oh, my God, what is the proper thing to do with me. And he said, the prophet Assad is foreign.
And the person said to him, this is how you make other
the prophet gave him the whole again, and this is reported in Mr. Muslim. This was how the nervous system taught him the other day. And he said, immediately when somebody says, I'm told him the other and he said, I said, well, La ilaha illAllah, WA shadow.
And then Avi Sallam said to him, I want you to become the memorizing of NACA. So
this was the way that I interacted with children at such a young age. And this is how they
made that contact.
That spiritual contact with children. And there are many exams, there are many books written about child companions, or the child companions around the net result Allah, both girls and boys. So now last ones that are given Sharla that we follow
example of the nerissa, Salah that we when it comes to our children and our grandchildren, that we form positive associations between them and Allah, for Salah for example.
Or is that something to give them? time? There's nothing wrong bribing your children. I mean, your small children. But otherwise, bribery isn't is a crime. bribing radicals, to take a bribe and give a bribe is a crime. So maybe there's another word in English I can't get to, but promise them something, maybe a chocolate or maybe you're going to take them some way. Or maybe, you know, whatever. Now is seldom used to entice the children to make Salah. Also, he was very lenient demand from the salon was very lenient with young people. When a young man came to you and said, Yeah, rasulillah you know, I love you. I love Allah, I love the part I can pray five times a day is
And so many young people have this thought, you know, really, they're very committed to Islam and everything. But when it comes to waking up, you know, being in the magic quarter past four in the morning, you know, as difficult for everybody, and especially for young people.
So then Avi Sallam said to him, how Lola who was quwata illa built in early la here in LA Raji, you want to be a Muslim we don't mix Allah La La La La quwata illa. No, no, we didn't say that.
Let me say Sam smile.
That was a solemn said I'm going to make a deal with you. special deal. This is like a no end of the month special. Nobody else gets it only you. We say what is it there as well. We said I want you to make only one salad every day.
To see what really once you for you one salad every day only ones that I said really an anaphor
Just do as I tell you to do them he says I'm set by the conditions to conditions.
First the farmers because of Salah.
You have to make fun of salah and the second condition is when I make Salaam professor in the morning you must be sitting behind me
in the masjid. If you can fulfill those two conditions. You don't have to make your offer. Venetia said Wow, this is great. This is a great bargain. So every morning, the Navy Salah when he made a Salam Alikum they were sitting the elements.
So what happened to this young man he fell in love with Salah
whenever he says on opening the door of love for Salah he fell in love as a la silla prophet didn't get until the nonprofit's income from their profits. Okay, fossil, then about 10 conformality 10 above some of the song. So you see the psychology. So sometimes without children were to use a lot of psychology.
So sometimes you know the chef and the molana children you always get, I don't fight, you have to use psychology. Very important. We have to follow the sadhana practice of Mohammed Salah May Allah guide us in sha Allah, may Allah guide our children
will love Allah Allah masala
