remember the first release that we discussed last week the phenomenon Melania very the very early beads are by
but they're in part by their intentions are very very early deeds are according to their intentions would be
measured the way by their intentions. This Huggies was your birthday party I'm Muslim from home or the llama animal. The second half was reported by Omar by the Allahu anhu as well.
Amara Johan we used to report the most important sort of like, most significant, most important, most essential hobbies, so any hobbies that is reported by Amara delanco you know that it has a great, great value. Certainly all of the profits are of great value, but like some of the ayat of the Quran are better than other or more favorable than others. And of course, he is the greatest source. In fact, the highest the greatest of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu some of them some of them are greater than others, but they're all great. So the second part is, is that the hadith of gibreel is known
The hadith of debris. Amara de la Hungary related to us that gibreel came while they were sitting with prophets Allah sanlam vain Americano to loosen and assorted lady sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is Tara Alena, Rajan. Shadi Tobias body. So shadow, the shadow. Lyra, he suffered.
A man approached us a man came towards us or approached us. He, he had very white clothes, clean and white, and very black here.
No traces, or no signs of travel wherever they went on him, but none of us knew him. And if you live in a place like in Medina, where you know, you're either from here or not from here, and if you're not from here, you will look like a traveler, but this man looks so clean and neat. And well, you know, groomed. He's not from Medina, but they couldn't see any signs of travel on him. So they were a little you know, amazed by that.
For Julissa Isla rasa rasulillah salam wa sallam as another
cafe Jada TV. So he walked up to the prophet SAW Solomon sat across from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and had his knees touch the knees of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he put his feet on the on his thighs on Do you know that person spies, he put his hands like this on his thighs, and he had his knees so he was very close to the teacher. And he was sitting the way a student should sit with, you know, politeness and the right etiquette. And he said, across from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said to him, yeah, Mohammed Abdullah neon Islam, er Mohammed Abdullah niara Islam Tell me about Islam.
Mohamed, tell me about Islam and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, and Islam and Tasha La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah want to Pima salado to sakata sama Ramadan,
beta e, Sevilla. And Islam is to bear witness that there is no God but Allah established. Muhammad is His messenger to establish the prayers to give the cat to fast Ramadan and to make hearts to the house of Allah. If you are capable.
If you were capable.
Then he said to himself up. So the man said to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam you said the truth Pharisee been Allah who yes Allah Who else of the Palmer says that? We were amazed by this he is asking him and then he's telling him up set the truth. So far did not always always have the power of affability on an email. The man said to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Burnie on an email so tell me about a man and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him at Eamon antamina Villa he made it awkward to be Barroso he was the only one codified he was he managed to believe in Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, the final day, and to believe in predestination, good and evil.
And then he said to him, set up for Bernie on it.
So he said to him, you said the truth. Now tell me about Alexa. And I said if we want to translate this,
then it would be excellence
would be you know the closest translation SM could mean what could mean beauty because it comes from Hassan and hasn't means beautiful.
It could mean perfection accent somehow Oksana say to mean perfected his his work.
It could mean kindness, because in toxin Ilaha mean means to be kind to him. So, it means kindness, perfection, beauty. So it is excellence. It is excellence in all of this.
So he said to him, tell me about Sam and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and Tabitha lac Anika, Tara, Tara in Iraq to worship Allah as if you see him and if you don't see him, then you know that he sees you. He sees you.
And then he said to him to alphabet neon his cell. So tell me now about a cell. Our
The Day of Judgment.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said men must all who are unhappy Adam Amina said, the one who's being asked about it does not know more than the one who's asking. And that shows you that also the the humbleness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So, he knows that there are limitations there is, you know, some things are kept for the divine for God, so, kind of Allah, and that territory is not to be it, no one is entitled to the territory of the Divine, except Allah subhanaw taala and this is this territory was kept by you know, you know, for a long time by Allah subhanaw taala for himself alone, and no angel and no messenger was informed of this. So, everybody, all the people who predict
and so on and so forth. They're, they're just,
you know, to
be honest, so the province of Psalms of Minnesota on heavy Autumn in a set and gone who's been asked does not know more than the one who's asking. And then he said to him, fat Bernie on America, tell me about the signs of itself, the signs of the South approaching, and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I can tell you that amadora better, when the when the bondwoman gives birth to her master, when the bondwoman gives birth to his third master or her mistress, and mistress does not only mean you know sexual partner, it means also the female of master.
And then he said, when that when Tara
Ratan ilottery, Arusha Yato Rania and you see the barefooted
with scam clothes,
the need the properties, the vision and
the separate shepherds, they they they compete in rising their buildings or they compete in building cars and like high rise buildings. So
they compete against each other in building higher buildings.
Why, then, the profits are low. And that's it for the Hadith. And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam approached armor that after after the man left and set armor, do you know who was here earlier, and armor settlers who are on the line is messenger know best. And he said to him in debris,
that is gibreel, he came to teach you a year about your need, he came to teach you about your need. And this is you know, there are this hadith was certainly
Raja combat in his book.
He said all the people that talk about Islam, talk about this Hadith, or the trenches of this Hadith, any one who talks about anything related to Islam, he's talking about this Hadith, or some of the branches of this hubbies some of the rays from from this hadith. So we certainly can, but we will have just a few stops because of the timing and so on. We'll just have a few stops.
Some some lessons to learn about etiquette of learning the etiquette of teaching the humbleness also of the teacher.
These are all lessons that we should learn from, from this hadith. But also the question and answer style is very helpful. So in terms of the logistics of teaching, this Hadees that tells us you know, debrief the back come to give them a lecture, but he sort of conducted a conversation with the prophet SAW Selim in the form of question and answer, so that the people could learn from it, which teaches us that direct lecturing is inferior to other forms of education, and the preface of sort of never give a lecture like we do nowadays, with where he would sit down and give them a lecture for an hour or something of that nature. He used to teach them in installments in smaller installments,
so that they can be just an absorb. But at the same time, the Sahaba came to the prophet SAW sudden five times a day
in the master. So it was very possible to teach installments, but nowadays, some of the Autobots, once you catch them, don't let them go.
Because you catch them once a week. Just keep on going and deliver some, you know, teachings.
So the Hadees starts by the talk about Islam and Islam. Many men are the same thing or not the same thing.
It's not many men are the same thing if they are mentioned separately, and when they are mentioned together they are different. But basically the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know if you want to say that the man is the acts of the interior and Islam would be the acts of the exterior. That is correct, if they are to be mentioned together, but when they are mentioned separately, then it's not like this, because the professor sometimes was asked after is not currently man Billa what what's the best of Islam He said, The Man billet belief in Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also sent an email to Sabrina Saba, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, wa Edna, you must
read will have sharper and sharper image This is reported to Muslim
along with the man is 70, some branches, the highest of which is the testimony of faith in the law, and the lowest is to remove harm from the way or out of the way, having higher modesty is one of those branches. modesty is one of those branches. And it has the signal it's like the signature characteristic of Islam the hallmark of is that the prophets are sometimes set in a liquidity pool open open, ended higher for every vendor is a signature characteristic. And that for a signature characteristic of Islam is modesty. And modesty does not only mean you know, modesty between the genders, this is modesty in your attitude, with a loss of kind of attire, that was the creation with
your family. It is a it is more than just limited to gender interaction. It's much wider than this. But anyway, that so Islam and men are used interchangeably unless they are mentioned together then they would mean different things will mean different things if they are mentioned together in the same location in the same hobbies or in the same area.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was once asked about math total Islam which is not which of the is that which of Islam is best. And he said, I'm totally mad at Tom Tatra As salam o Allah Maharashtra woman tarrif. This was reported by Bukhari and Muslim Rahim Allah. So this agreed upon hubbies the prophets in this agreed upon Hadith the prophet of Islam was asked about my afternoon is now which of Islam is best, he said on Twitter, Amazon, to feed,
to give food out to feed the people. When Takara Assalam Allah Maharashtra, Milan tarrif. And to spread the greeting, peace or to extend the greeting of peace, to those whom you know, and those who don't.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a hadith also said, players needs anything else you have a moment when I asked her to Sarah Kane acid will have a moment that the fornicator does not commit his his act of fornication while he is a believer, and the thief does not commit the act of stealing while he is a believer. So are those things? What are those things? Are those things the Pillars
of Islam and Eman are the manifestations are what we have to understand that, you know, Islam is an Islamic Eman is a huge structure. This structure has doors and windows and bases and foundations and you know, different doors and you know, different manifestations. So, some of these ahaadeeth when we read them, they are talking about the is the foundations of Islam and foundations of email without which you don't have Islam and you don't have email. Some of those Hadith are talking about the basic structure of the building, aside from the foundation, above the foundation, now the basic structure of the big building, the first floor where you have the main gave and so on and so forth.
Some of the hobbies talk about the fulfillment of the structure, the fulfillment of the structure. So when and how can reports from our beloved our best of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, ladies and gentlemen, Olivia. Yes by Raja Buddha. He is not a believer, He who is he is full. Quarterly, he will eat his fail while his neighbor is hungry. He is he does not mean that he's kept.
He means that he did not really fulfill fulfill the criteria, characteristics of belief. He does have the basis he does have the foundation, but he has not really fulfilled because now
It should manifest on you know, having laid down the foundation and built the first floor, and so on and so forth. Now it's manifest on you, having this faith inside you should filter out should manifest radiate from you radiate in the form of total Tom Christ, Rama, Rama tarrif to feed people that it should radiate on you in the form of kindness that weekend oppressed and orphan, so on and so forth. If it doesn't treat eight, then there is a problem, that there is a problem with the foundation that you need to examine that you need to go back and work on the foundation. So that you work from the bottom up and so that the fulfillments of this structure are completed, you know, the
fulfillment, you fulfill the the
structure of Islamic Eman in your heart and in your practice.
So, in this Hadith, the prophet Sawsan and is talking about the very foundation that he will build on the very foundation that you will need to build on. So he talks about Islam. And when he talks about Eman And he particularly mentioned the Arab Qatar, you know, as one of the pillars of Eman In fact, this hadith was reported because of the issue of whether
this hadith was reported because of the issue of color because Muslim reports this hadith from a man called the Vietnam War and he said that, you know, the first people that question other or predestination in in Basra part of Iraq.
Basra is the city in Iraq, the first people to question one of the first people to question cutter predestination, and Allah was a man called Nava journey. So I and her maiden Abdul Rahman Al Rahim era went to had and then we said, if we find one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we would ask him about those people who deny others
and see how smart they were. They were going for the source that one of the companions of the Prophet SAW was other than the students, they wrecked students of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when we find we'll go and ask us, so we were fortunate enough, he said, to find out the why of Nomad capitalists upon walking into the masjid. So we surrounded him myself and my friend surrounded him from the right and the left. And we said to him, you have the ramen.
Ramen, in common?
With Barcelona, una.
was academic him when Karuna tada some of the people in Barcelona, they they memorize the program, and they seek knowledge, they are knowledgeable, but they denied further. So the loving woman said to him, tell them that I am clear of them and they are clear of me. By Allah, if the spin the weight of offered in gold, and then I cutter, it will not be accepted of them, and then the correct to their belief. And they believe in all that which the prophets of Allah
taught us. And then he related this hadith that I heard from his father, that the so and so he related the whole Hadith to them, because of the sick the six pillar of faith that was mentioned in this hadith is harder to remember.
And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talked about the concept of accent and he said on top of the luck, Anika Tara, Tara for a new era, and that, you know, a man came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and apparently reports this from madness that a man came to the prophet SAW Solomon said to him, give me
teach me something and make it brief is
sometimes people are but but see how the professor was not offended. He was not offended. So the men came to him and said, what, maybe the man he has limited capacity. You know, he's he's unable to retain a lot. So he said, he went to the personal ceremony, talk to him teach me something, but make it brief. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, you know, and look at this from Tennessee and the speed at which the personalism answered it. This is a man receiving revelation for certain. Every time he was asked the response, the spontaneous response was so good, so clear, so you know, straightforward, so to the point. So the prophet SAW someone said to him, some
salata more in Illinois, Techland Tara in Iraq.
Pray like someone who's given farewell to his farewell to his people or to people. Someone who was leaving What does like someone who was leaving before travel. So play like someone who has given for well to people. For if you do not see him, he sees you. For if you do not see him he sees you. So when you stand before Allah subhanaw taala and prayer, pray as if this will be your last prayer and you're you have given farewell to your family and to the people and this, this is your last time to pray in this dunya. And if you truly do this, if you truly do this, can you imagine how your how great and beautiful your prayer will be? How perfect it will be? How focused you will be
beautiful, beautiful hobbies if we just remind ourselves of his hobbies before we pray somebody Serato one day as if you have you because it comes at any point and we don't know when it comes, you know comes up any point. The Prophet also said to a man, Amanda tells us that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to a man
his email lies that he aka Minerva julaine him and Sahaja erotic er raffia carnic, like farrakhan
you know, show modesty or, you know, shy away from being seen by Allah subhanaw taala in, in an improper
situation, like you do,
in front of two men, from your family, to men of the righteous members of your family, to righteous men of your family, without denying them inside a house, here are the two righteous men of your family that are always with you, and we never separate from you. Because Allah is always with us. And he never separates from us. He's, he sees us, he hears us all the time. So can we imagine it like, imagine this, that we're always thinking that we are being looked at, by two righteous people or, you know, the two angels or the prophets or wanted to further bring it down to, you know, the basically the
front lobe, the frontal lobe of the brain, it is basically make it more vivid, you know, as if two of the men that you know, from two righteous men from your family are always accompany in view, they're always watching you.
Imagine that this is happening. But but it is not only that, it is a loss of data that is watching over you. It's not even the androids, it is a lot. So Karnataka is watching over you, medical doctor was sitting one day at home alone. And people came to visit him, one of the righteous predecessors, the seller facade medical more often, so he was sitting alone at home, and then they walked in, and he was sitting, like, he wasn't alone. And they said to him, don't you feel lonely? And he said to them, or money Association, Mashallah. And who would feel lonely in the Presence of Allah, you know, you wouldn't feel lonely and that is why people who really feel the presence of Allah subhanaw
taala, they would find, they would not find solace and comfort, except with Allah subhanaw taala they would not find solace and comfort in, in, you know, the busy markets, you know, some people feel so lonely, they go out to the shopping mall, so that they feel that, you know, the hustling, hustle and bustle of the market, because they have a void in their heart that they can film. So they want to be busy. They want to stimulate the site, and they're hearing always by people talking and people doing and so on and so forth. And once things calm down, the fill that void in their heart, but someone who is whose heart is filled with a love of God, who is very aware of the Presence of
Allah, this becomes an experience that grows, it grows with time it grows with practice, that is why I had if I said to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, as if I could see the people in the Jenna, visiting one another, and as if I can see the people in the north, you know,
mourning and yelling and screaming, get out of here can be an agenda. Can era Gen. z, how can you
get out of here. I feel as if I could see the people in the agenda are visiting with one another. And I see the people in the northeast screaming kids inside the NA because what it is basically you increase your awareness you
Increase your recognition and awareness until it becomes a visual experience. It is it is mentor conviction in the mentor conviction, it increases, increases increases until it almost becomes a visual experience, because that is a high energy it is a theme.
So then the last thing that the professor someone mentioned in this hadith was about the Salah, and he said that no one knows, the one who's been asked does not know more than the one who is making it was asking. And then when he talks about America, he mentioned two things. And three, that I'm not sure
when the blonde woman gives birth to her
master, and this means one of two things, either there will be a lot of bad women, and then the children will be freed and then they they, they become their masters unknowingly. Because the prophets are seldom said, For you know, by a wonder woman who gives birth. Ubuntu woman who gives birth the child will not be sellable, and will be immediately set free after the death of the master, the master cannot sell her becomes a different status or more than the mother of a child, so can sell her, she immediately becomes free after the death of the master. So but it could also mean and some of the scholars said that it could also mean that there will be much
there will be a
validation, which is mistreatment of parents, that the kids will treat their parents like master treats, they're the one man or woman the kid will treat his parents like the master treats his one man or one woman before the day of judgment. And that is the more likely interpretation of this that the kids will be so rude to their parents as if they were their masters. were entitled
to see those like people barefoot
in some hobby, some book mom which talks about their ignorance and some of these intermediate report it's from the fact that the prophet SAW some of them said Let
us look outward aka this the our will not try rise will not come until the most fortunate people in the dunya will be looking at it okay? You know so losers out of loser mean that that's the meaning of the hubby's loser son of a loser. Those will be the most fortunate people or the happiest people with the dunya before the hour. And in of the manifestations of this hadith also, the prophet SAW Selim said as reported by Eben imagine from Anasazi along with
the Van Ness film a bit been massaged. So this is Sarah the day of judgment will not come until the people show off the massage. And the province is on the same list to say that this is something that they should have done for Allah, but they're doing it to show off the compete in the structure of the massage. Whereas the Eman the far is what matters. But people will be competing with one another in in building higher and greater and bigger and more like aesthetically pleasing massages when the mustard suffered from the rain he said to the builder Akin the national motto motto to suffer What are 200 you know shield the people from the rain but do not you know use red or yellow Do not you
know distract the people from what they come here for
when when the built to the master in busted or the built the masculine Buster and the muslimeen on for the first came to abasa able to master that around the master. They have their own homes, they were made out of tents, tents of heights, animal heights may be having a shock and then the the the suffering from like
robbery and so on. So the asked armor of permission is either Sahaba the synthomer asked him for permission. They build their houses from straw. You know straw main houses, straw houses, so the wind center to Amata ask him for permission. Because the Sahaba were quite aware that we're here in this dunya for a mission. We're not here to stay and build the you know palaces and so on. They were there for our mission. So they they have this they have these tents and then the center Hummer
To build, to allow them to them have structs. And when they did this,
the stuff, they started to suffer from fires, you know, like episodes of fires and so on.
And then they asked armor to build it from clay to build the houses from clay. So I'm going to allow them to build the houses from play and this this is where the stuff but after the Sahaba they built the houses from a job, which is that the baked clay? It is liquid. Yeah. baked clay. Yeah, bricks, the bricks, you know the Yeah.
So our webinar has been said that, you know, and we have seen that the people who live the people who live in the tents were better than the people who lived in the straw houses. And the people who lived in this row houses were better than the people who lived in the mud houses. And the people who lived in the mud houses were better than the people who lived in the brick houses. So this does not mean that our massage should be unappealing, or should be unclean, they should be clean, they should be comfortable, and so on. But they should not be extravagance. And certainly, the intent should not be to show them off, but rather to make the people comfortable when they pray. And when you do this.
So it the this part in particular, is about the hollowness of the people at the end of times, they're hollow. They're, they're empty inside. And they're so big outside
you know, the structure, the physical structure is always great. And the inside the interior is so hollow and empty. The actions are you know,
so, so far away from the
pretension, you know, it is like a show, things become more ostentatious, more empty,
of meaning more lacking of sincerity. And that is what this is about the people who will be so busy competing for the greatness of the exterior
and showing it off. And that will distract them from fixing their interior. So anyway, I'm sorry, may have taken a little longer this time. But this is a very, very
beautiful Hadith. It's also somewhat lengthy.
So next time we'll go over these numbers three. From
says about the neighbor. So what is the range of the neighbor? Like how far is the neighbor is considered for somebody?
So how far is the neighbor like communities? How many houses
You know, this character said seven up to seven doors from you seven doors away from you. But certainly your next door neighbor is the most deserving of your kindness. And then as as it goes out, then it fades out, you know,
certainly old people have rights on us.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked about also another Hadith about your Islamic affable and he said want to have better nazma to help clean up sick, to love for the people mature love for yourself. So all the people have rights on us when he and Muslims have more rights, and relatives have more rights. And neighbors have more rights. So if you have like
one of your relatives who's also your neighbor is also a Muslim. He has the most rights. So and closer neighbors have more rights than farther away neighbors. But up to seven doors the doors would be here. Consider as close neighbors. Yes.
well, that's about $1 million dollar question. So
how do you attain solace basically, you will never be able to attain solace and 30 you know, your destination and you know your
The value of this life and if you really know the value of this life, you will never grieve over what you miss in this life. The Prophet Allah subhanaw taala to business. Now someone will see what's in front of you and physical malefic it happened one company and abre in Nevada como la jolla See it? Okay? So Allah,
Allah, Allah, Allah.
No afflictions befalls you on the earth or in yourselves, except it is inscribed in a book before we bring it to existence, verily, this is easy for Allah, I am telling you this, so that you do not grieve over what you missed, and do not have excessive joy over what you have gained. And a lot is not like the boastful proud. So to believe in predestination, to believe that things have been scribed way before we were created in a book, and the preserve a tablet gives us a great, great deal of solace. Actually, Henry Benson from the you know, mind body Institute of Harvard University, said that there is nothing that quiets the mind, more than knowing that all things are in that are under
the control of one hand, there is nothing that quiets the mind more than knowing that all things are under the control of one hand, that is exactly what we have, that is our Arqiva and further, all things are in under the control of Allah subhanaw taala.
So the belief in predestination is extremely important, the recognition of that the trueness of this life. What is this life after all, very transient journey, very draining journey, those who grieve over they don't know what the meaning of this life because regardless of what you amass, gather, collected in this life, regardless of how powerful you are, you know, Alexander the Great was the, you know, the greatest warrior in the history of mankind. He lived 32 years, his life and he had no delusions about him being a god. People thought that, you know, olympias his mother actually conceived them from Zeus, the Greek deity, and he and his people thought that he may be a son of a
god or something like God figure, but but his life ended, although he had a kingdom that was you know, larger than any other King, but his life ended at age 32 he could not protect himself from a bug that infected him after he was hit by an arrow in India. You know, going back he died in Babylon after the you know, the infection took took over. So, so what what is the story about a lot of this what this thing is about, I don't want to do any advice on what was enough to not suffer from Vanakkam but the castle on Fifth, fifth, a monument already considered arising out of a foreign ultimatum, para una hakama.
Allah said, know that the life of dystonia is about playing amusements and mutual posting amongst you and seeking abundance, in wealth and children. the likeness of dystonia is by carrying the visitation there with so the likeness here is not there in exactly, but the visitation that comes there with after the rain falls, the visitations that Tom's there with from the rain
is pleasing to the farmers ream and pleasant to the lookers watchers capacity by using a double coupon about what you find here is the farmers so many to Patara homes for and then the visitation dries out and becomes yellow, somewhere guru calm and then it crumbles away and becomes into dust.
won in the year after there is great torment and forgiveness from Allah and pleasure, well might hire to do the enema tower and the life of this world is nothing but the deceiving enjoyment, a mirage.
That is, that is what it is. And if you look at yourself, and if you look at the people that are sitting in this room, you will find that the complexity of this federal here is different from the my complexion is different from the complexion of someone who's a little older than me, and I'm not pointing out anyone but that that you know what that means. It means that we're drying out from the moment we are born or drying out, we lose water. We're born with 70% of our body weight in water and we die. You know if we die cnim was 55% or 50%
sense of our body weight in water. So we're literally drying out and life is literally was the same height and we made of water everything that's living. So water is the source is the basically the main ingredient of life and that has been taken away from us from the time we come out from them we're born. Life has been taken away from us until the time we die.
