It had been days until anyone had spoken to us. It was

He has to deal with this very tense situation.
He was upset, he has to break the ice and speak to him. So what does he do? He cracks a little joke. He says the Messenger of Allah, we should have seen it.

he says, and this is the point that I want to mention that we
set up after he smiled, he said properly. And when he sat down with photography, a lot one is looking at the body of the sort of lesson. And he's describing the room. He's saying there was nothing in the room, but a straw man, and who is this battery's talking about? He's talking about who Rasulullah saw the loved one, he was the best of all mankind? And there is no second opinion in that within our faith. And what happens? He sees the suit

He says don't misinterpret love. How am I supposed to sit here and watch these marks being on your heart when you're the best of all mankind?

a loved one was the man who learned this lesson directly.
In one day during the falafel
dealing with matters of the muslimeen and he feels thirsty. He's been sitting there says after Friday afternoon time. He's thirsty. He's tired. He tells one of his friends can you please go give me a cup of water. The friend goes he brings a cup of water for a lot of different things to himself that this man sacrifices so much for our Deen so much for the Muslim community. Rather than just bringing in water let me get him a cold cup of water with honey mixed in it.
He brings it to his mouth. He's about to drink it and he smells the fragrance of the honey. he lowers the cup down. It begins to cry. One of the companions say Why are you crying? laughing He says I just remember the verse of the Quran. Allah subhana wa tada says
that what are you asking for today? You are good today you want paradise today you want luxury today? Didn't already take your paradise and luxury in the world.
You've already taken all the luxuries in the world.
for you today, there is no luxury at all.
I never sat around at the beginning when he is parting with your loved one.
A governor far away from
giving this advice.
This may be our last week.
What do you see? What do you mean by this may be our last meeting
said after this date is very possible you will not I will never see each other again. And while crying in disbelief singleness and develop Please don't say this. Please don't say this. either. I will either you will leave the room if we leave the real relief together. If we live in the world we live together Oh messenger of Allah Don't. Don't say such a thing. And finally,
get your act together. Today is our last meeting. And listen to every word I say very carefully. Because these words you must live by.
When you go to the foreign lands and someone comes to you and tells you that decide between are matters what we'll use to give a verdict between the people
and we'll use the book of Allah
says If you cannot find your answer in the book of Allah then what will you do? He says I will refer to your sooner and if you cannot find the answer then what you do.
I will use my intellect and compare with the Quran and the Sunnah and I will give an answer to the people
who gave the correct answer. This is what you must do. And the last advice
He was walking along with him walking along with him. And he's speaking the mind and he says to
be aware of a luxurious life. Because the true servants of Allah don't live a life of luxury. They live a life of simplicity
of your loved one, when you arrive.
When you arrive at the Holy Land, the rabbi's are looking at him, and they're thinking Who is this man? He is the man that's been described in our books as a conqueror, a victim of this. And when he comes into the historian say, on that day, he had 15 patches on his club, how many patches 15 patches on schooling. So let us wake up from this dream black. Let us wake up and move away and begin to think with our own brains, and stop allowing other people to dictate our life in front of us and stop a lot of other people to picture the picture of life in front of us.

If you stop at the gas station, you don't invest in like a $3,000 house 30 $300,000 house, no, you're just a traveler, if anything, could pay 50 bucks and get yourself a hotel for the night.
Be in this role, like a stranger, or a waiter passing by, don't choose this role to be or a vote. Because if you stop here, the possibility is you may not be able to prepare correctly as you need to prepare for the hereafter for the trouble.
Although ability to understand what has been said, that allows us to open our eyes and look beyond this illusion that's in front of us to look beyond this. In front of us. There is no person in this dunya who ever stepped foot into it and began to earn the high rents of the road. And when you parked in the road that person said that I have achieved that there is no one. But let me tell you there are a whole list of people that history has witnessed that they didn't go after the dunya they went after pleasing Allah and when they were departing the road the verses of the Quran wandering around their tongue.
