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

Awakening MEDIA presents the for Grady mams by Dr. He Sham, our D.

00:00:57--> 00:01:01

Brothers and sisters, welcome back to the third and final part

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

of our fourth and final.

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

In part one we spoke

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

we spoke about

00:01:23--> 00:01:24


00:01:32--> 00:01:40

during that Inquisition, suffered tremendously, so that he or you would continue to believe

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

was not created, simply because Allah subhanaw taala did not say that.

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

It was because of

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

in this part, the third and final part

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

in the society that we live in,

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

in the same way that we discussed the factors formulated,

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

formulated the social dimension.

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

And he's in society, we don't talk about elements.

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

So far as the social guidance.

00:02:40--> 00:02:49

One comes from a noble, noble lineage. His father is a well known for

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

his grandfather was a well known

00:02:53--> 00:02:58

or a well known governor, what does that mean? It means that

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

he has no complexity

00:03:04--> 00:03:11

does not necessarily mean he needs the political leads, even if they were senior officials.

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

Or, or even.

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

It also means that the Father to him

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

was his role model, in patience, and in bravery and courage. Because his father was a courageous soldier that died

00:03:35--> 00:03:50

in the battlefield. So even if I didn't handle had institutions, that probably did not see what he heard through his mother, through his friends, that used to say to him, may Allah have mercy on your father

00:03:51--> 00:03:55

or may Allah have mercy on your grandfather, he was.

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

So far as household was concerned, and so far as a practical institution

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

is concerned, he had the patient's mother that taught him how to sacrifice for

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

your values for your principles.

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

Know just getting married until the age of 1414.

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

You know what,

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

in terms of second parents

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

used to say

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

if you accept ransom for the sinner

00:04:47--> 00:04:48


00:04:52--> 00:04:52


00:04:53--> 00:04:54


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

for me and for you

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

these days

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

If you want someone who could die for the sake of Ahmed Mohammed, Ahmed Mohammed,

00:05:08--> 00:05:08


00:05:25--> 00:05:27

Number two, he was

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

really poor.

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

He also did not have complexities before wealthy people, rich people.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

It also means that he was very close to

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

the same scenario in the same way

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

he was, but he leaves him live close

00:05:53--> 00:05:59

to the pool, be aware of the power of the pool of the concerns of the poor

00:06:03--> 00:06:07

lifting nothing but a small house and a small

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

or what have you.

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

Bring him

00:06:15--> 00:06:16


00:06:18--> 00:06:26

satisfy him and he's coming. He would run out of money many times. What would you do

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

as a

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

team to learn

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

he would write you a letter in return for money.

00:06:37--> 00:06:44

Because remember, he learned how to write. So people would ask him to write letters. And he would

00:06:45--> 00:06:46


00:06:50--> 00:06:51

that was

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

probably spoken and said, you know, with handwriting is this

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

was a big

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

8000 remember?

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

So you have a valuable document.

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

The handwriting.

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

We said,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

What is the story behind this letter

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

said once we were

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

attending the circle of

00:07:31--> 00:07:32


00:07:33--> 00:07:40

we missed assembling the circle for many days. So I went looking for him, I found him sitting

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

wherever they traveled.

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

So I knocked the door and I felt

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

alone in the room

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

and covering himself with a blanket.

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

I said to him what happened?

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

He said I can lend you some money

00:08:08--> 00:08:09

does not take any money.

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

No money.

00:08:14--> 00:08:22

Even when you give him he will, he will take it because they know to give. Tell him to do what he will make sure he will return.

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

If you give him a glass of water. Tomorrow, he will buy you something else in return for your gift.

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

So he said no, no money. How else can I help you?

00:08:40--> 00:08:45

said I don't know. No money from you. Is it okay? I

00:08:47--> 00:08:47


00:08:51--> 00:08:57

so he gave him 100 I don't want the money.

00:08:59--> 00:09:14

Please go to the market. Buy me some clothes. I put them into two pieces. So that I can use one as a waste rather than the other as a cloth and bring me some paper so that I can write you.

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

So this is the story

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

of the pleasure and the order

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

is to love

00:09:33--> 00:09:42

one of the contents. He said I have never seen the poor people dignified in any meeting, except in the meetings of

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

when he suddenly had a baby

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

and he made that invitation for people to come celebrate

00:10:06--> 00:10:22

Usually, the case usually make the make the senior political elites in society, not the poor, the poor meaning the shoe maker, that Lima, those people who are working in

00:10:23--> 00:10:24


00:10:26--> 00:10:37

these kinds of stuff, begin with them, because they deserve our attention, when he attended social gatherings He attended with particular

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

people for example, to awaken

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

hundreds, if not

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

1000s of people

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

when he attends, usually people

00:10:58--> 00:10:58


00:11:01--> 00:11:15

and give a greeting to the inviter that sits with the people and before he leaves, he must seek permission from that, who invited him and say to him, please give me

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

one of these colleagues

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

said I knew for 13 years,

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

he never asked me to write anything down.

00:11:31--> 00:11:43

In terms of Aggies, however, I just used to look at him and learn from his manners, and from his behavior, this statement, why now,

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

you should have heard

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

looking just at the behavior,

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

bringing people

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

I look at,

00:12:03--> 00:12:10

just to see and to learn from his manners, and from his just to see, when he goes to weddings,

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

he must

00:12:18--> 00:12:18


00:12:21--> 00:12:22

ever visited him.

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

Even if he had nothing in the house, which was

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

most probably the case what whatever he has, he will present and he will provide.

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

He will

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

give extra care for any visitors.

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

He didn't even Hey,

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

you know what? Because

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

one of the lands

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

close to the Roman Emperor.

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


00:13:18--> 00:13:27

you see the truth about evil, it's not about that he insulted me abused me attacked me. It's about what sort of service he did to Islam

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

that I can give to him in terms of God, forgive me.

00:13:38--> 00:13:39


00:13:40--> 00:13:41

something that's especially

00:13:45--> 00:13:45

and you asked about

00:13:47--> 00:13:47


00:13:49--> 00:13:52

benefits you get when your brother

00:13:54--> 00:13:55


00:13:56--> 00:13:58

in the Day of Judgment, because of you.

00:14:00--> 00:14:04

The only way that this will not happen is that if you forgive your brother,

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

if you say to Allah, don't punish him because of me, because if it was for me, I forgive. I forgive him.

00:14:16--> 00:14:16

I forgive me

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

all along.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

But just to

00:14:25--> 00:14:28

follow, it was up to me.

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

A man who was an extremist or a conservative or

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

a man who had

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

a warm, loving,

00:14:42--> 00:14:48

he just looked at things differently. And he never imposed on you anything.

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

Like, he likes to come he likes.

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

He likes. He doesn't like taking water, even if it was

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

a lot

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:03

get him you might be,

00:15:04--> 00:15:08

but he is unique, not just different,

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

no compromises

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

not just when somebody needs to go,

00:15:26--> 00:15:26

to meet,

00:15:28--> 00:15:32

and also to meet him in person, by the way, when

00:15:33--> 00:15:34


00:15:37--> 00:15:41

lecture, they agree to meet each other again in the future, in

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

one day, I will come to

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

you, he said,

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

he said he promised me he was visiting,

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

he said,

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

and he says, I still don't have enough money

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

he knew how to do

00:16:17--> 00:16:21

was to help him out, you know, how he helped him,

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

he knew that

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

he travels a lot to Yemen to meet up.

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

So, he

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

said to himself, if I can help

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

somebody get a job.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

During that time, that was me, who was

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

among the apartheid dynasty

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

and any was very close.

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

So it seems that necessity somehow arrange for a beautiful

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

You know, what was that?

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

To become the judge of

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

a judge?

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

This magnificent, great person.

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

Please, accept the post. Please accept the post, please accept the post.

00:17:37--> 00:17:37


00:17:43--> 00:17:46

he responded to him by saying,

00:17:52--> 00:17:53


00:17:56--> 00:17:58

you bring this subject

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

to me.

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

confident of what you

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

justifications will not make you change your mind.

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

Explain how

00:18:35--> 00:18:46

to do it for the sake of doing it like a child. Don't play don't put your fingers in your mouth. No, I'm going to put my notes here we are talking about conscious decisions being made as a result of persuasion and conviction.

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

And you continue to say no.

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

It is deeper than

00:18:54--> 00:19:00

it is deep conviction that makes you say no. As a judge in Yemen, just to say

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

a word.

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

That will not be written down. That will just be said today.

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

But even then no.

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

Society, what was the like? You'll give me a gift.

00:19:17--> 00:19:18


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

I will send you a gift.

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

One of these.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

Give him

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


00:19:28--> 00:19:29

the next day.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31


00:19:34--> 00:19:34


00:19:36--> 00:19:42

my father ordered me one day to buy a gift to one of our neighbors.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

The gift was worth about five

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

I said to him Why? Because yesterday

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


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


00:20:01--> 00:20:02

we say it was?

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

Probably toys.

00:20:07--> 00:20:11

He said, Go and buy some little sons.

00:20:14--> 00:20:30

You love me, I love it. Don't make me feel that you are giving me gifts. Because I am poor. Don't give me gifts with a receipt. If I want to return the money back, no, don't make me feel I'm in need of money.

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

Give me a gift with dignity. And I will make sure that the day after I

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

never accepted money from Illumina.

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

Not to mention, of course,

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

not so much

00:20:52--> 00:20:52


00:20:54--> 00:20:56

some people were jealous of this

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

one person

00:21:04--> 00:21:07

does not accept your money, because

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

I tell you what, if my father

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

was resurrected from death,

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

and told me that

00:21:21--> 00:21:26

he is planning everything against me, I will not believe

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

because he has reached a level of conviction that Mr. Hammond was a decent person.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

The only thing that

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

he does not accept lumpy

00:21:45--> 00:21:46


00:21:48--> 00:21:52

is to give his son's father fala Allah de la, a large sum of money.

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

We discovered that he was visiting both of these sons. They said to him why

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

he said, this money

00:22:07--> 00:22:14

should go to the soldiers at the outskirts of defending the Muslim oma rather than going to us.

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

We don't need money,

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

they should somebody should go in support.

00:22:23--> 00:22:28

But what is that the Mujahideen should receive more money

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

or not.

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

We have been living now.

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

Coraline was

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

the beginning of the school

00:22:52--> 00:22:53


00:22:54--> 00:23:04

I said, I will focus in the human dimension of the image. And I hope I succeeded in doing that. There wasn't any mention

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


00:23:10--> 00:23:11


00:23:14--> 00:23:19

Although I did discuss that, in 1997.

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

The tastes are important if you're interested,

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

if the taste still exists,

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

because I nearly talked about

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

those 14 months. Why?

00:23:36--> 00:23:40

dependent? Why while the other is to plan and when

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

I did not think at that time. And during that time that there was an achievement in doing this. Maybe there was a need

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

for these things, because people were

00:23:53--> 00:23:54


00:23:57--> 00:23:58

Should I follow

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

some of the questions, the same questions were asked.

00:24:04--> 00:24:05

And they will continue to be

00:24:06--> 00:24:13

but I thought that this was not an achievement. You know why? Because the books are here. But what have been told today?

00:24:14--> 00:24:23

It's not mentioned a lot in the literature. Go to the internet type, type,

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

type of

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

brothers and sisters.

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

I must take this opportunity to say

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

yes to Sweden.

00:24:37--> 00:24:41

He did the recording in Arabic

00:24:43--> 00:24:50

which I hear that many times. I was fascinated by the I was taking notes like you are

00:24:52--> 00:24:55

in preparation for the course. I phoned him

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

I love listening.

00:25:04--> 00:25:08

And I'm tweaking. I called him. I said, Yes.

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

He said, Yes.

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

He doesn't know me. I said,

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

I said, you have a minute

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

attending a conference.

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

I said, my name is

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

I'm going to deliver talks on the phone.

00:25:40--> 00:25:40

I've been

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

influenced by your team.

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

And I just have one question.

00:25:47--> 00:25:48

How did you prepare for

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

my notes already?

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

But I want some advice.

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

I tell you what, I won't give you an advice.

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

You know what?

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

I have

00:26:10--> 00:26:10

two books.

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

And the books are going to be published in the coming.

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

However, they are.

00:26:21--> 00:26:22

I will email them.

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

I will email you.

00:26:26--> 00:26:30

I received an email a couple of days before

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

following the phone call

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

out of mine,

00:26:41--> 00:26:47

my wife Kim, and I said, You don't believe what has happened? I was just talking to

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

you send them

00:26:52--> 00:26:52

these notes.

00:26:58--> 00:26:58


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

are my ideas? I thank him very much. I pray for him.

00:27:06--> 00:27:19

He sent me an email. He said to me, may Allah bless you. May Allah make it easy for you. If you ever translated that into English, send me a copy. May Allah bless him, May Allah forgive.

00:27:21--> 00:27:41

What did we aim to achieve from all this? narrative? jokes? Interesting. Yes. But not only that, I wanted to show you one thing. Number one, is that these were role models. For me, I knew they were not even if you are not,

00:27:42--> 00:27:52

you know, what was the challenge? The challenge was that I expected systems to come. But I was saying to myself, I'm only going to see intellectual Wi

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

Fi. Because we are talking about a main focus.

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

So I must make sure that there is

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

the she was the mother. The she was the She was the daughter.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

Then I said my audience will be on.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

Then let me just sleep again.

00:28:16--> 00:28:22

765 was the calculator started from the day he was born

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

to know how old was he when he went to ODM and

00:28:29--> 00:28:37

I would be extremely glad when I get a result in the calculator 2025

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

I made sure I would focus on that. Because I know

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

that you will.

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

I pray to Allah many times,

00:28:51--> 00:28:56

to me to be able to deliver this score. eloquent, I was hosted with

00:28:57--> 00:29:06

a spelling mistake. And I still I'm still making silly mistakes. I hope you will forgive. But Allah gave me power constraints a lot.

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

I just wanted to make sure.

00:29:12--> 00:29:16

I said all I'm going to talk about fourth grade.

00:29:18--> 00:29:34

Please make me succeed in delivering hopefully they will and don't make the English language to be an impediment between me and the audience. In the same way that you release, the tongue of Musa alayhis salam made him so eloquent when when he was

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

talking to

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

an Allah Gz.

00:29:46--> 00:29:56

I wanted to show you one thing, that these are role models. But not only that, I wanted to show you that you role models can be diverse.

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

taking money from

00:30:05--> 00:30:14

people and made for you, you might not appreciate that, at least every day. I know it's elegant. But please appreciate that

00:30:15--> 00:30:19

so much that he has to take a bath. Before. He mentioned what

00:30:25--> 00:30:36

I wanted to show you that Islam is so great that it's capable of absorbing different kinds of different kinds of backgrounds. If you are rich, you have a place in

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

your heart a place of Islam, if you are black, if you are paralyzed,

00:30:42--> 00:30:49

if you are assertion origin, if you are a Hashemite or, if you are originally from Medina, or Yemen,

00:30:52--> 00:30:58

you have a place in Islam, and Islam is capable of making you great, but just you say so.

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

And Islam will help you.

00:31:05--> 00:31:06


00:31:07--> 00:31:08

towards others,

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

towards this students, or students.

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

But the following day,

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

we moved to a column for

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

students in telling them and encouraging them to visit other schools, to visit other institutions to visit other academies to visit other teachers, they were not worried that they might do

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

I want you to join

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

with initiator society, I wanted to show you that I'm

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

00:31:55--> 00:32:06

say to yourself, today, I want to create a turning point in my life, my life is the life of my wife, my husband, my daughters, and my son

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

wanted to give examples to this is

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

a decent businessman.

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

If I failed in

00:32:18--> 00:32:26

addressing gender, he if I failed in addressing is true,

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

then I hope I did not fail in

00:32:31--> 00:32:38

addressing certain values. Forget about the age, forget about the gender, on the values,

00:32:40--> 00:32:46

commitment, discipline, dedication, just one patient sacrifice.

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

I made sure that these values crop up under different types of the person

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

and society.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

I made sure that there were civilizational values in

00:33:05--> 00:33:06


00:33:08--> 00:33:18

area for me, I hope that your sons and daughters will listen to these themes. I hope you would listen again to them.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

If you like them,

00:33:21--> 00:33:27

pray for me. If you don't like them, pray that Allah forgives me.

00:33:43--> 00:33:48

Back home, people coming from outside London. I'm the only one

00:33:49--> 00:33:50

Thank you very much.
