Al Hamdulillah. He waka was Ramona la Riva, Latina Stouffer, Susana Allah Suketu cerebral hotmelt anbiya
wa ala li hilus. Kia was have you heard about
some of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
were blessed with a short journey to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Here I refer to their distance, Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allah who was a resident of Makkah, a fellow tribesmen,
he had easy access to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The journey that he had to take on to show his loyalty and stand by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is where you see his sacrifice. Likewise, when the resort Allahu alayhi wa sallam arrives in Madina, Munawwara so many Sahaba are residents of Medina tayyiba. So they have that easy access to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and with their exposure, the more they see and hear from the Prophet sallahu wa de was setting the more amazed they are, the more touched they are.
But then there are those companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who had to take on a journey of a lifetime just to be with Rasulullah sallallahu. It was
for those of us who have access to in the deen to scholars, just by where we are, we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala that everything is so easily available to us. No journey at all, no hard work. The first person you bump into in terms of the Dean understands the Dean knows the Dean teaches the dean is an imam in the community. These are blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you can never thank him enough for.
Because for most people, that isn't the case, their interaction with the dean is one interaction after another one door they knock on to another. And some of those experiences along the way, are very difficult.
And they could be nerve racking. They could be scarring as well.
And if you don't walk that path carefully,
then you could be lost along the way.
And that's the reality of life.
That for most of us, it's this big wiggly tourney twisty road that you go from one place to another place from one place to another place.
I hear stories from people quite frequently. That some years ago I was involved with the masjid there, I went to a dancer a Holika. And the particular chef or chef that I was engaged with, turned out to be a con or maybe someone who swindled me, someone who took advantage of the people, their congregations. These are very sad stories, but they're unfortunately true and real.
If you're into intentions are not focused. And if you have
if you don't have the strength needed to face those difficulties, you can easily fall facedown.
How you pull through these circumstances is by reminding yourself that your commitment is to Allah azza wa jal first and foremost, and that's the end of it.
Knowing the difference between Islam and Muslims, someone asked hustle and bustle once.
This man is a student of Senior Companions like Allah, the Allah hawan and NSmen Malika the Allah one and two that hustle and bustle responded back by saying, Muslims are in the grave and Islam is in the books. It's very hard to find people who truly represent the religion who live by revelation. It's not easy. It's hard to find people like this. Earlier today when I was speaking to the students at the seminary. I explained to them that there is a clear distinction between Islamic history and Muslim history.
Islamic history we are loyal to it ends at the Hall of a rush soon. That's where it ends. Soon allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life and the life of the Khalifa. After that starts Muslim history. And you have a mixed bowl there. You have the good, the bad, the joyful and prideful moments and then you have the super disastrous and shameful moments as well. It's a mix of all of it put together.
Be committed in
loyal to Allah subhanho wa Taala and never shy away from the challenges that are on that path.
So for today's story, we turn to a companion, who went through one epic journey to lay his eyes on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Say you're gonna send segment on follow suit with your loved one.
A Persian resident
whose father was religious, his family was religious. His father loved him so much. In his own words, he says that it was as if every day my father's love for me only increased
of love not busted the Allah one narrates the incident from Sun mount and phytosanitary Allah one, the journey of his life. My father was so worried and he was so protective that he would keep me at home would discourage me from going outside. And then when I was of the appropriate age, I was given the task to work in the temple to kindle the fire. So the fire they worshipped as Medusas would never be extinguished. He continued that continue doing that one day, he had to tend to the family business, his father had some land that they would look over every day, his father was unable to go. So he sent him in his place. And when he went there on the way back, he passed by a church. There
were some priests in there that were worshipping Allah subhanahu wa taala.
He was so intrigued that he engaged with them, and he began to listen to them, he sat with them. And this became something that he appreciated so much more than what he had done, and he had no previous exposure to religion. He grew up with the religion that he was born in, and hadn't seen the world outside of his home, and the temple that he served. So monophonic said of the hola Juan, he went back home and told his father, that man, I bumped into these priests, and what they were saying and what they were teaching and the way they worship Allah subhanho wa taala, their message of the heat was so pure, that I'm inclined to this religion. His father was overwhelmed and terrified and tried
to dissuade him. And when he failed, he locks in modern fantasy with the law, one in the home, chained him up
some modern fantasy of of the Allah who won sent a message to those priests, and told them that if there are any caravans from Sharm from Syria that arrive to our land, let me know I wish to join them to go to the motherland of Christianity and learn it from there. I want to go to Aleksa I want to go to Coates, I want to go to that land of Palestine.
So they sent him a message Some days later that there's a caravan here that will be here for a few days, and then it'll be heading out. Son, Manuel foster the Allah one, had a plan in place, He released himself from the chains, and rushed off, join the caravan, and arrives now in Shem.
He asked the people there that who is the most knowledgeable of the religion that I can go to, I want the companionship of someone, I want a guide.
So everyone pointed to the famous one that you know, there's a famous guy over there, this guy is really prominent, you should go to him. And not in all cases. But in many cases, the famous ones are the ones you need to avoid.
He ends up with this guy.
semana foster the Allahu Han says that it wasn't too long after I started sitting with him and benefiting from him that I realized, this guy, this man was disgusting. He was horrible. He would give lectures about charity and would tell people to live simple lives. And when they would give him their charity, he would take their gold and silver and instead of distributing it to the poor, he was hoarding it for himself.
Until the point came where there were six or seven massive kala Tila first like a big clay pot. In our language, we call it a matka. He had this big clay pots full of gold that people had given him over the years that he should have distributed among the poor. He didn't distribute any of it.
Sandman or the Allahu one sided out didn't say much. He was still new there.
This man died. When he died, everyone gathered together for a grand funeral. He stood up in front of the people and said, Guys, stop it. This is not a good human being. This person actually has a very bad man. They said How dare you accuse our scholar and leader? He said trust me, you know that sadaqa that you guys have been giving all this time? I know exactly where it is.
They said impossible. Let me show you. He takes them over open account and says Look at this chase account right here.
And they see an ungodly amount of gold just sitting there. So in return what they did was rather than giving him an honorable burial
They crucified Him and they, they basically crucified Him and they disrespected his body.
Now, they were so angry that they wanted to replace this head priest of theirs with a respectful person that would actually be just with the congregation. So they begin to look and look and look finally they found someone and that person came to replace it.
Sandman or the Allahu Allah says that when I met this man, he was the exact opposite of the first guy. He was a good human being. He was righteous. He was simple. He was humble. He was a godly human being.
I lived with him until his death approached. He was an old man. When he was passing away I asked him that after you who can I gain companionship from in grow? So he said go to so and so place. There is a man there that I'm telling you. He is a good person. Now bear in mind as we move along in this story, that San Mateo foster the hola Juan saw the misuse of wealth. In the religious class of people, this experience of his is very important. Okay, hold on to that thought. So he arrives at the second person's door, this person was amazing and awesome, really influenced by him benefited so much from him. When this person was dying, he said, Who do I go to now he sent him to a third
person. He went to that third person, again, awesome human being benefited tremendously from him. And then he said, Now where do I go, he send them to a fourth person. Each of these people were on their deathbed. He arrives at the fourth person benefits from him. Finally, this fourth person on his deathbed says to him, that there is no one that I know on the face of this earth that I before. Like I was vouched for, but I will tell you that the signs have now appeared. As we see in our Scripture, the moments for the final prophet to arrive have come. So I will describe to you the land where you will see him next, a land full of palm trees lying between two volcanic mountains been a
Laverty between the two volcanic mountains he will be there. So modified is gonna be Allah one had no idea where to go. But this teacher did tell him that it would be somewhere in the Outlands.
Now he's waiting in the markets for the next Arab caravan to arrive on the carrot. When the caravan arrives. He says to them that look, I have a few animals I will trade them for you guys to guide me and provide safe passage to the Arabian lands to the ages. They agree let's do it. These people, they traveled with him out of Sharm. They came down south and when they entered into the hijas
they betrayed him. They tied him up in chains and sold him to a Jew.
This Jewish man, he then took him and sold him to another Jewish man who resided in Madina Munawwara
this guy brings him to Medina hasn't been slavery, send modern fantasy to the Allah one is picking dates from trees.
And that's where he is not knowing where life is taking him. Probably reflecting over how he had this amazing dream of sitting with the Great's of his time. But today he's at a roadblock at a dead end picking dates.
But in those moments, you can only imagine his dua was in his turning to Allah subhanaw taala that yeah, Allah, this was all for you open the path he was trying to make late to Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Little did he know that the Prophet of Allah was going to come to him.
He hears through the grapevines that there is a person that claims to be a prophet and MCCA he's intrigued, doesn't know much spends his days as a slave working for his master in the fields.
And then he hears that this prophet has arrived in Madina Munawwara in cobalt, he was at the time right outside Medina. At that moment sun mon fazzi says when I heard that news, I was in the tree picking dates and I felt this jolt go through my body, my body began to shiver and shake that I thought I was going to fall off the tree right on my master. So I quickly descended from the tree. I went up to him and I said, What did you say that that prophet has arrived in Medina, and he's looking at the date palm trees around him in the two volcanic mountains on each side.
So his master slapped him across the face and said, Get back to date picking this is none of your business.
quietly went back to the top of the tree picking his dates.
He had collected some dates of his own.
And he was
Wait for the opportunity to go outside of Medina to Cuba and meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he arrives in Cuba.
The last teacher that he was with had told him that in order for you to know that this prophet is the real deal, I will give you three signs. He will not eat from sadaqa
remember some Alfonso the Allah one had dealt with people that were abusing Saba, abusing charity. When you go to him, he won't do that. Rather, on the other hand, he will accept gifts,
which is a sign of him being generous and kind and cordial. So if you go to him with sadaqa, he won't accept it for himself, he will give it to the poor. But if you go in with gift, he will accept it for himself out of respect for you. And then between his shoulder blades will be the seal of Prophethood which was a unique mark on the back of a suit Allah said Allah Allah He was sent him.
He arrives in Cuba with these dates, and very carefully, strategically. He says, All messenger of God, I bring these dates as support for you.
He's watching carefully how does this man respond? So Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam takes the dates and hands them over to the Sahaba you guys can share these.
In his heart, he must be thinking yes.
Got one down.
He heads back, continues his work.
Some days have passed for sudo Allah Allahu Allah was sort of now moved on from Cuba and has arrived in Madina Munawwara
he arrives a second time with some dates to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And he says, a messenger of Allah, these are,
I'm presenting these to you as a gift.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepts them and has a date or to himself and then shares them with the others.
He then arrives again to Madina, Munawwara later on to check up on her sort of loss and a lot his sermon this time He comes, the Prophet of Allah was in the graveyard of books, the famous graveyard of Madina, Munawwara
and he's trying to figure out that third sign, if that mark of prophethood is on the back of the Prophet of Allah.
in not so much of a discreet manner, he begins to peek over the shoulder of Rasulullah sallallahu it was, maybe said Allahu alayhi wa sallam notices what he's doing so he lowered his garment for him.
set him on fire to the Allah one leans forward and hugs the Prophet of Allah. The prophets of Allah Allah was sent him pulls his garment back up, and says, buddy, what's your story? What is going on here?
So he says, a messenger of Allah
this is my full story. This is where I've come from. And while salamander Farah sort of the Allah one is sharing this story with if not above for the Allah one
remember he's sharing the story too. I'd love not bustle the other one for Al Qaida who I'm glad he further to either cut him out of the WHO Fen kebab to Allah. He will cut bill who opkey for cholera Sula, Howard
so then he says that as he's sharing the story with my boss of the hola Juan for the how well to focus us to Allah He Hadith de karma Touka, Yamuna Abbas. So just as I'm telling you this full story, oh young, ignorant Abbas. I said the whole story with the same detail to suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for algebra pseudo loss of audio. So maybe you sit alone while he was sitting was so amazed by the story that he then told me to share my epic journey with the other companions that were there. And everyone that heard it was shocked that Man, this guy climbed Everest 10 times around.
You know what it means to climb Everest. Once you cross 1000 feet, you enter into the
the lower the death zone.
Staying there will naturally just kill you. You can't stay there anymore. Your body needs more oxygen.
You know how people when they climb Everest, it's a big deal for them. For some monophosphate of the last one. This was a never ending journey. He went from being the son of a respectable man, now sold into slavery, cutting away at dates, and is waiting and at an absolute roadblock, having been abused and seeing the foul of religion and the beauty of religion sitting with these amazing people and his new epic but who could share the story when
he was sitting on it without telling anyone. And now he's sitting in front of the greatest of all mankind was sort of lost that alarm. It was set him in the profit. Here's his story. And he says, Man, that's epic. You're a legend.
I'll jump to another narration then I'll come back to this one. One time was sort of lost that alone while he was recited the I was in Tata? Well yes, the omen
that if you turn away that Allah will replace you with the new generation with another generation. So the companion said, O Messenger of Allah, who would these people be? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took his hand, and he taps on pharmacy to the Allah one. And he said, This man and his people, referring to the Persians, that this man and his people, and one under the seat of the eye, well, how do you know minimum limit will be him? I'll hurry it. I mean him LeMay and Kobe him sort of Joomla Imams duty Rahmatullahi Allah narrates that same narration, he says, the prophet that Allahu Allah He was because in that ayah, Allah is talking about a second group of people who are
not from the Sahaba who will come and match them in quality and characteristics. So then, Imam su tierra de la YALI, he says that at that point, I sort of lost a lot of Saddam said that from this man's lineage will come people who will go far above and beyond and come back with understandings of the deen and will will put their sweat and blood into the deen that even those who received it meaning the Arabs, they will not have put that effort in referring to the children and the people of San monophosphate of the Allah one, and then you fast forward in history, and you find exactly that. The canonization of Hadith happens all in Persia. Imam Behati Lucha Ali Muslim Rahmatullah Ali Imam
Abu Dhabi, the city started on Playa Ali, Imam Telemedia Rahmatullah Ali elBulli Imam nessa Rahmatullah hiya Ali, all these people, and Imam SUTI after he narrated that via local Imam will be thorough yella, who the gentleman who Allah after that he said that, in my opinion, Imam Abu Hanifa was also the moral of that statement of Rasulullah sallallahu. So even though he has Shafia, written by them himself.
So cinemawall Fazzino, the Allah Juan finally shares his amazing, beautiful story.
Now he has to head back to the farm because he was a slave. Life doesn't end you found the Prophet of Allah, his dream came true, but he's got to go back to work. Like most of us, you listen to the heart that listen to the Holocaust, spiritually motivated next morning at 8am 7am. When that alarm goes off, what do you need to do?
Gotta go back to work. Gotta throw that coat on again, got to tie their shoes up again. And you're back to life. So modifiers are the law, one went back to work.
And he remained in slavery for the next four to five years.
According to majority of the Anima Ozzy and a seer, the historians they write,
he missed bothered and
he wasn't able to participate in either of those great battles in the second year in third year after hija because he was still locked in slavery.
And after missing odd Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then called him
and said to him, God, Tim yes and man
enter into a contract with your owner and ask him for a price that you will pay off. So then you can be free. Look at ABA enter into an a contract
the mashallah semana look, had the FATA humara Sula, Buttero
for color Sula. KTBS ADMA
for caught up to Sahibi Isla Thara me at inocula
will be Albarino UIA. I went into contract with my owner that I would dig out for him.
300 palm trees dig out for him means that I would, it wasn't it wouldn't just be palm trees that existed meaning I would dig out the ground, prepare the land, make it all fertile, get the land prepared and ready, then find the tree. Place it there. Have it grow, I would give him 300 of them. That is a ridiculous amount of date palm trees.
And for those of you who don't know, like, try to grow a tree in your backyard. Or if your HOA requires in the front yard, one of those trees will wipe you out. He had to do 300 of them. And then 40 okiya Opia was a wait a unit of gold. There were 40 sort of measurement of gold that will be given.
He came back to the prophets of Allah to set him and he said O Messenger of Allah. This is what the guy said. The guy said that I owe him 300 palm trees and like, like a whole cup full of gold a whole jug full of gold. How
Oh my God, give him that I'm done. So the prophets of Allah Juana he was Saddam, then turned to the Companions and he says, you know, how come fundraiser
everyone chipping we need some amount and fantasy to the long run out of slavery.
The OMA needs to learn to recognize high potential.
If you see people in your community that have a tremendous amount of potential and the only thing holding them back from excelling and serving the deen is their financial state. We need to get their those people out of that burden. So they can run in serving it.
Because there are people who have that strength, that energy that potential they can do much more than many of us will be able to do. If we were to do it. You have to learn to see that potential. See it in certain people. If you see someone that this person could be a phenomenal physician, if their finances were taken care of build the courage to take them through that path.
Take on their burden take on their responsibility. Because if you take it on watch of the hate that will then follow.
once is Musa here Musa is not here is he?
His grandfather has one of the most epic stories in the world, by the way.
He's Kashmiri origin. And
I was once sitting with him in his living room in Virginia. He's a physician.
And he was telling me that how when he was
there were a group of people who are Muslims, who for one reason or another when they were young, hadn't performed their circumcision. And neither could they afford it. So he was a physician who I just graduated and had a little bit of training. So he said, You know what fees have eaten up for the sake of Allah, let me see if I can perform a procedure to to help these people. So in that, in that area, he performed one procedure, a second procedure, third one, and then the number of people started coming that they heard that there was a person that was helping, so everyone started piling that we need help. We need help with this. We need help with that. He started providing some help.
And then life happened and he had to leave.
So many years later, when he passed by, he was visiting again, maybe like 4050 years later, he was back in Kashmir again with his wife and he said to his family, let me take you back to the first place I ever practiced in my life. He's a very old man Dr Alvey. So he said, let me take you back to the place where I first practiced in my life.
And when he went there, that small little hut that he had called Shiva was no longer there. There was this big hospital there. He said, What's this? He went inside and it was called Shiva
said What's this place?
They said, well, many years ago, there was a man that came to this place, and he set the first clinic here. So after he left the people, the community upheld it. And today, it's this massive hospital with hundreds of beds. This place is dedicated to the unknown man.
And he began to cry.
That little did I know that one small effort of mine would bear such a fruit that hundreds and 1000s of lives would be saved, because of one move this one sincere moment. And that's what ALLAH SubhanA what that looks for those sincere moments that you just roll the dice and say, No, I trust Allah, Allah will take care of it.
Allah will take care of it. And then he proceeded he said to them, that I'm the guy who started this. And he had pictures of it all documentation of an infamous old life. And they then built a memorial for him outside, that this is the man that came and unknowingly set a seed in the ground that today this is the fruit of that seed. You have to learn to look for talent and potential. And in the in the end the skill within people look for the potential and human beings that were our people. Learn to find the brightness in human beings before the light even turns on in their own mind, before they even realize what they can accomplish. Learn to look for that talent and invest in
that talent. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to the Sahaba you know how come? Let's go let's help up some mountain fazzi A man like this should not be in slavery. He's traveled the world. He's been traveling for decades. For this moment. Let's get him out. So the Sahaba for unknown, unknown even nothing. They gathered together and they started bringing the trees together.
One person brings 30 Another person brings 20 Another person brings 15 and slowly slowly all the trees are prepared. Now it's time to plant them.
Masuda Lhasa Allahu Allah Sallam says it have yes a man for coffee Lucha for either ferrata Hakuna other or hobby ad that you have. We have the trees ready. Now what I need you to do
do is dig out the 300 holes, go do that yourself. Take some people with you dig out the ground, get the ground ready. When it's time to place these trees into the ground called me I will place them with my own hands for confortola on any US hobby. We went and we dug out the holes. And when it was time Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came no quarter Ebola who nobody whether or who Rasulullah saw someone via he maybe said a lot is said I'm placed the trees one by one in the earth himself.
Someone and finally the Allah Juan says the first time in my life I saw I saw not one tree died. You know when you transplant trees when you move them from one location to another. The probability of this not working out is decently high. It could work out and it may not. He said out of 300 How many of them survived
all 300 For well lit enough to sell man bat he Mamata minha Wadi yet and why that
for a day to nothing, so that part of my contract was waived for me. Now I had another problem. I had a whole jug
of gold that still needs to be given to this guy.
Some time passed by one day, for OTL Rasulullah Salallahu Salam B Mythili bay that is the judge a demon that had been murdered, madam.
Some time had passed by and one day a person came to the prophets of Allah to sit down with a chunk of gold that was recovered from a mine a mining expedition someone was digging he came across some gold. So he gave a part of that gold to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he asked Sandman What happened to your contract? He said a messenger of Allah I'm waiting for that gold.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, well here you're going to give it
he says I waited.
And for her to have I was in Tula home minha I took it and weighed it, and it was exactly 40 UIA of gold.
I went and I gave it
for sure hit to my Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 100 thermophilum the mala Mia FedUni ma who Mashhad Mohammed that I went, I gave that gold. I joined Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam in the Battle of the trenches. And after that day, I never missed a moment with some sort of loss, analyze. Everything was with the Prophet SAW on set Him every moment, all day and night, as much as time as you could have with the Prophet of Allah. He was with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he was so dear and beloved to the Prophet of Allah, that underspin medica the Allahu Allah says that a suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a sabbatical. arbeiten there are four people who will
outrun and be ahead of everyone else. Four people will be the Forerunners for people stand out.
from the Arabs, Allah has given me that MACOM and that place was so horrible cyberscoop room was Salmaan wasabi Coronavirus will be there too sad before Habesha and out of these four people the prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that son man and Father said are the Allah Juan is the forerunner of the people of Persia.
When the battle of the trenches took place, this was his first time with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Muslims were in a very tough place.
10,000 soldiers are marching towards Madina Munawwara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam realizes the Muslims are no match for them. So he doesn't know what to do. semana Fazzino, the hola Juan he says a messenger of Allah. We have a tactic that we used to use in Persia,
that when the enemy outnumbers us by a large gap, we barricade ourselves behind a trench and we ride the war out let's do that. The province that Allahu Allah was sent him loved it in one narration as the prophets of Allah Islam was dividing them because you don't want anyone saw to saying that you guys over there you guys over there you guys are going to dig this part out. You got you folks will head over there and dig this part of the trench. Some of the Mahajan said that Salman is from us. And some of the unsolved said Salman is from us. And to that was sort of last time a lot of Saddam said Selma and woman beat the Sandman is actually from us the family of a sort of loss and this is a
commentary wire that you'll find in the books of Syrah. However, as far as the Senate goes, it is very weak as a chain. The son of this is the eighth Judah is a very weak chain, but the meaning of it is quite sound in the sense that he was that deer and that special toodle suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
mean the Battle of the trenches is its whole story in its whole fascinating reflection. The truth is that what we face right now
What we see right now happening in Gaza, when I try to look for moments that reflect that reflect that reality at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was set on what we see right now. The closest that I see is the battle of the trenches. This one right here,
because the Muslims were barricaded in, they had nowhere to go. They had 10,000 soldiers surrounding them. On one side there was a mountain on the second side 10,000 soldiers with a trench separating them and the Muslims.
And then on the third side were bundled Florida.
And this tribe of bundle parada betrayed the Muslims.
They said to the courage that we will allow you to pass by and go and butchered the Muslims one by one.
When our suit Allah said, Allah Islam heard that bundle Pereda betrayed them.
All the Muslims now behind that trench, we're about to get butchered the process that he laid on the ground, and then, you know, he was so stressed and so worried because there was no way out. They were going to die. They couldn't go anywhere. And there was a safe passage they were going to come through and one by one, knock them off.
You said a lot of ceremony. You heard this. And the news spread among the Sahaba that they were all going to die. Everyone was extremely sad.
Just depressed. This is over. We're all done.
In that moment, and Have you settled on he said.
He turned to the Companions and he gave them hope.
Capturing the scene of how depressed and sad they were Allah azza wa jal says it the judge will come and focus on women as far as I'm income. They came from the top and the bottom with Zlatan upside your eyes couldn't see straight. That's how shocked you were. Well, one of London 100 Euro hearts had reached the throat, people couldn't breathe anymore. Like what some of us feel right now that heaviness in your chest, what's going to happen next? What Aluna Billa hit Luna, people began to lose confidence in their Creator. When it comes to Leon minimoon. It was at that point that believers were tested was in zeros in zahlen Shalida. And they were severely shook.
And then in that moment, and then he said a lot of someone everyone's in tears and they're sad that this is the end of it. The prophets of Allah it was said m stands up, and he gives them hope. That mark my words very soon we will do the life of the Kaaba together.
And Allah will give me the keys of the Kaaba and you will conquer Rome and Persia
and their treasures will be spent on you.
And it's that optimism that maybe said a lot of Saddam had while everyone else was heartbroken that ensued Abdullah Hassan in the Surah that talks about the Battle of the trenches. Allah azza wa jal says in that same context, look at the cannula confit Rasulullah, he was spot on Hassan that indeed in the Prophet of Allah is the complete example. This is talking about the prophets that Allahu Allah was cinemas response to the Muslim morale being cracked
everyone gave up he didn't look at can on a computer so the light was what an hasenhuttl lumen carnage Allah will Yeoman acid worker Allah cathedra so then the Sahaba followed his footsteps when I'm
on ha then Allahu wa rasuluh was Allah.
The Prophet was optimistic. So when they face their enemy, they said, This is what Allah and His Messenger promised. And they spoke the truth. Victory will be here for us. Um, as Adam Illa Eman and with steamer. They only increased in submission and faith. Looking at the enemy looking at death. Their Eman went nowhere, meaning that the Janome Sakuma Allah Ali, from believers are those that fulfill their commitment to God. That when things got tough, they didn't turn away.
Why did Allah test him? Leah does the Allah who said the cleaner pacifically him so he may reward the truthful, the truthful for the truthfulness while you're agreeable man African so he may punish the hypocrites in sha if you will or your to lay him if he or if He wills to forgive them in one of the Allahu La Nina kufr will be highly him. Let me
ask for the disbelievers what they wanted from the Muslims nothing was given to them. And bear in mind in hunt up there were Sahaba that were martyred.
But that was an honor for them. Last night, I was sitting with some
of my neighbors. And one of them said that Schiff This doesn't feel right. What's happening in Brazil right now, and we can't do anything. What Are we just supposed to make dua? Are we just supposed to walk in meaningless protests?
I said to him,
one of the ultimate realizations in life and one
of the higher spiritual stations a person reaches
is to understand
that sometimes we do things not for the sake of Allah but for ourself.
It's a knee jerk reaction for us to want to do something after we feel something
that's natural for the human being you feel something and you want to follow it up with a action. You feel hunger. What do you want to do?
It, you feel thirsty? What do you want to do? You want to drink? Right? You feel angry? What do you want to do?
I'm waiting for you guys to tell me what you want to do.
As opposed to smash a hamburger. Right? Someone else wants to punch a hole through the wall like what do you want to do? After a feeling after an emotion it's common for someone feel sad, someone feels angry, someone feels frustrated. You want to follow those up those up with actions. Now if you just want to do something, because you feel like that's what you need to do right now, that's not a good thing.
Because bodies if you want to get on a flight right now to go to Lazar, Philistine, they don't need bodies there right now. This is a full political situation, you have to understand. And it's not just politics. If Barbados decided to support a bizarre right now, what would that do? It's a regional issue. There are a select number of people that can actually impact the course of what happens next.
Other people are not a part of this conversation. It sucks. But it's true. We can talk about long term and short term strategy of how to handle this. And that's another conversation. But for this one, understanding that in this moment, the only thing you can do is make dua and do whatever you can in your community by creating awareness and having conversations, you have to take contentment in that. You doing something to simply satisfy your own whims and desire may set the whole cause back.
You jump on a flight and do something dumb and go out there and do something crazy. You set the whole cause of Muslims backwards. You're feeding into the narrative, these guys are doing their hardest to paint all Muslims in Philistine right now as terrorists. Therefore they use language like 911, the 911 of Israel, they're using language like the ISIS of Israel, right? They're using all this terrorist language, you know, so to make it six systems, there are terrorists, you do stuff like that you're feeding that narrative. What you need to do right now in terms of action is nothing.
You can go and raise your concern where appropriate and make dua and turn to Allah and do vicar and turn to Quran. And there are many examples like this in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam were in a visa Allahu Allah He was sort of just confided in Allah subhanaw taala and made dua, and when it's time for you to stand up, if there is an opportunity for you to go and help our brothers and sisters across the world, if you can jump in a plane and go, then go, but otherwise, don't make an action about you, while bringing harm to other people.
The story of hundreds is quite fascinating. And throughout this entire journey by the side of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Cedra Salman and Farsi are the Allahu dadan.
I'll share a few stories from his life. And then we'll wrap up there is a narration that I shot them in place in Geneva, Rob dilla both came to visit cinema and fantasy on the other one.
The granted their greetings and they conveyed their greetings, said Mr. Aiken, and they asked him
under Sahib Rasulillah Are you the companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam out of foster the Allah one said loudly I don't know
further about their pending
remain you don't know.
They were confused. So then someone fossa de la Juan responded to my saying in Sahih boohooman da Jana.
The true companion of the Prophet is the one who finds himself in paradise with the Prophet.
I had some time with him in the dunya but I don't know if I'm really worthy of being his companion.
So then they said we just came from Damascus, where a Buddha the Allah one lived. Now I've looked at the data the hola Juan and Sumatra Farsi the hola one were made brothers in Medina muah hut has to be said a lot of Salam paired companions together for that support. But the data the hola Juan was paired with some mana fantasy so modified to say that they are the Allah one was not an immigrant, but he was a slave that was then later set free and to help him get on his feet as well. The Prophet of Allah paired him with a Buddha, the Allah one, and there are a series of very fascinating
truly fascinating interactions between these two. When you open up the books of Hadith you find them for example, Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah Ali narrates, in his other will move forward. Aha. Rasulullah Bina Salmaan what a bit Derrida maybe said a lot it's an impaired sentiment and Fazzino the Allahu Allah Buddha the Allah one. One de semana Farsi came to visit a Buddha and in return instead of meeting a Buddha he saw a Buddha that his wife Farrar Omada he sat down with the data the Allah one there and she looked tired and exhausted and sad for Karla machette looky what's going on? He asked her
so then she says,
in the haka about their daddy lays it low who has it and fit Donia you know, that brother of yours, or that friend of yours, he has no worldly desire. He just worships and prays and fast all day.
You can imagine as a wife, she's like, there's a disconnect here. He's always doing mashallah stuff and I'm just trying to have a few moments with him and he goes back to his mashallah stuff.
So Simon Foster The Allah Juan says
I'll take care of this for you.
Philip magia Buddha caruba Taman so Buddha the hola Juan came home said matter foster the hola Juan was there he presented some food to him
so I've done a battle the Allahu on set in the site and I'm fasting I can eat
some monophosphate of the Allah who answers well Allah He I won't eat until you eat you're breaking your fast
so I will do that or the Allah one then broke his fast out of respect for some modern fantasy of the Allah one obviously it wasn't it wasn't an obligatory fast otherwise Sandman would be fasting to
fella kind of laid the habitable dudleya
So When night came in Abu Dhabi Allah one got up to pray certain amount of fantasy with the Allah one grabbed his hand and pulled him back down.
Lie down and go to sleep.
You're not praying now? He's trying to go pray some amount of fazzi saying Nope. You need to go back to sleep. We need to create some balance here. For lemme kind of after a little Carla husana Sandman to Milan when it was the last part of the night close to Pfizer submodel pharmacy with US law one gun sitting now stand up and go prayer 200 Salah for karma for Sunday and then some mama the Allah one set in NFC garlic
that your you have a duty that you owe to yourself take it easy
balance things out while erotica Alec Huck on your Lord has a right on you fulfill that role as well. That right as well. We're in nearly lasica Alec Hakan we're in early Alec Alec Hakan for RT cool lady hacked in Hong Kong
that fulfill the right to everything your wife has a right your family has a right your people have a right to have everyone take care of yourself.
The next morning about the battle the Allah one he said man I gotta get this issue cleared up. I did all of this because I respect you. But I want it clear for a day in the BS that Allah Allah He was sent in the next day both of them came to the Prophet Allah who it was
for Luca, Luca, who
and they mentioned to the Prophet of Allah, the whole interaction for kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam Sadako Sandman, that Salman spoke the truth. You need to have balance and everything that you do.
So these two guys they came to him and they asked him, Are you the companion of the Prophet of Allah? I said, I don't know. They said What do you mean? No, no, he said that. Well, you know, the true companion of the Prophet of Allah is the one that will be with him in paradise. So at that point, they said to him jitna minute in the EBITDA. Now the prophet has passed away, Salman has left and he is in Persia. And a Buddha the Allahu Allah has moved on. And he is now in Damascus. These two young friends are now in two different parts of the world.
So submodel foncier the Allahu ansaid Aina Hadiya two who
were Where's his gift?
Allah mama Anna Hadiya we didn't have any gift. He didn't give it.
He said it talk to ya Allah wa at the Amana
be fearful of Allah and fulfill the trust Metalia Hado Miniland de la Behati at no one has ever visited me from Abu Dhabi. Hola, Juan, but without a gift, where's my gift?
he didn't give anything like Wallah here. This is the real deal. He didn't give anything.
So listen man, Matt, what do you do in that Hadiya I will not speak to you or engage with you until I have my gift.
So then they said Allah Allah He
Mr. Botha minor be *ting Illa Anna Hogan, he did not give us anything. The only thing that happened is that when we went to him, he said in a few come Raja encounter Rasulullah Halabi he led me to believe that you are going to meet a person. His his relationship with the Prophet of Allah was such that he was with the Prophet of Allah that He said a lot of them didn't even look at anyone else. You're going to meet such a person let me every little fee that I need to mount who after the who may need a Salam so when you go to him, give him my Salam.
If you haven't yet and can read the mini kumara hottie he said What else do you think I was asking for in terms of the gift I just wanted with that that set out.
I was waiting for you to bring peace to my heart and tell me that my buddy up with the Elana one remembers me What are you hottie at the end of bolo minha.
The prophets of Allah who it was set on one set, agenda to touchstar ko Isla Thirupathi. Paradise desires three people everyone wants paradise but paradise desires three people, i Li, Amar, or Sandman and one of those three people is Salman al Farsi Radi Allahu Taala and
Salman are the Allah one, even after being appointed as a governor, and he had this respectable stipend that was enough to take care of him and his family. He would give all of that all 5000 4000 Did under no need he would get he would give all of it in the path of Allah. And then he would Yama bat he would go into work in the markets to earn money. And then when he failed the Assad machine is still up he llaman was Emeka with the money that he would earn he would then go and buy some some meat. familia, familia during majestic Amina falconwood, no matter who and then he would invite people who are sick, the poor, the needy, and he would eat with them.
One time I will do that with the hola Juan wrote a letter to Sandman and Fossey remember I told you there's so many fascinating interactions
Abuja Dhabi Allah one second ambition was second to Salman and Kufa Wakaba Buddha Allah He said I'm gonna click on my bad thing Allah Azza fanene Rosa Connie by the canal and wallet when a third of the LUCA sir
he said Allah Buddha Allah the Allah one word a letter that after I depart of you I move to this blessing Mubarak land of Sham and Allah gave me wealth and family
so submodel Farsi the Allahu Allah responds to him in the Hydra laser because rotten money when what he says to his brother that don't think a lot of wealth and a large family is a sign of good
without getting laid off and yeah Illuma hammock.
Good is that your forbearance increases that you don't become stubborn and mean and harsh with people. Well, I am FATCA and that your knowledge benefits you that's a sign that God likes you.
What am I gonna Katara what are the next a comedian Mota that do good deeds as if you can.
So there's one line before that in a lot of a lotta Amelie I hadn't wha Malka Anna Katara Well, I didn't have to come in and Mota. When you do good deeds, do them sincerely for the sake of Allah and consider yourself among the dead. What that means is when you die, nobody cares about you. So while you're alive, stop acting like people care about you. Focus on your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada.
One time, some modified a set of the law one had a dispute with another Sahabi another senior Sahadi
so that person was so angry at Sandman with the allowance Theano things got heated. So in a very insulting manner, he said to send money into Serbia said man tell me what your lineages
semana the Allahu Allah was not Arabian and a non Arab lineage was frowned upon and he knew exactly what was happening here. And this person was trying to insult him
on a kind of being a Saudi Arabia we'll close with Salman and Farsi shaitan Allah said Yeah, settlement. Allah ma RT fully urban Phil Islam wala kidney, Salman YBNL Islam.
He said I don't have a father that I can reference that would bring any prestige. However, I will say that I am Salmaan the son of Islam
and as Salma Abdul Islam, I am a man the son of Islam.
Oh my god Allah when he heard this.
He heard of this interaction for love the Assad and He then met the other companion and said to him, Indesit
tell me your lineage. Seems like you were flexing the other day and asking other people calling other people up. Tell me
all the Angelo Coppola Nene
It's a hobby. He said I let it go.
So I'm going to the hola Juan for about a year that I will have to intensify. He said no. Tell me
Tell me from Allah and then I'm going to the Allahu and said, Look at the ultimate Quraysh and they'll have Baba Khanna Azam vilja Helia are an honorable Islam, that everyone knows that my father Hapa was a respectable man from the flourish. But even I am Omar the son of Islam, a hula Salman, even al Islam.
Allah Allah He, Lola shaitan, lockup took
he said that
had it not been for a particular matter I would have punished you and I'm going to let this one go. We are all brothers and Islam. Forget all of this lineage and tribe and race and all these things forget all this. In the moment we don't have one we are one body one family.
Send them out and pharmacy of the Allah one when he was on his deathbed.
saw the map you will consider the Allah one and epidermis or the Allah one came to visit him.
So they said why are you crying?
Does it not please you does it not make you happy
that you were blessed with companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
does not make you happy that you stood by the side of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in almost all the battles you were with him? The Prophet loved you Why are you crying?
Karla Arden Aida who? Elena Rasulillah alumna photo. The Prophet made us take a promise while he was alive and we didn't fulfill that promise.
This is now the philosophy of mind with your loved one and he's on his deathbed.
Allah Leah couldn't Bella Hadid Camilla dunya Casa de Rocco, because the rocky let me realize that I made this promise that we would not live luxurious lives that we would live simple lives like that of travelers. And we didn't fulfill this promise of the sort of masala when he was sitting
on a tablet. The narrator says Bella Vani under Houma. Tharaka Illa be the automatic shooting at the Rahman
when he said that we lived luxurious lives when he was crying over that.
We then found out he only had 20 that hums left.
It wasn't like he was sitting on hundreds of 1000s or millions.
But he still cried. He was worried that how will I face loss
when his death approached
he called his wife will play it
and said to her
open all the doors to the house
if he had the hill at work
for in nearly a year was Warren What did he mean? He had Hill Abu Dhabi at Haroon Alia for I will have guests visiting me today. And I don't know which study will come through but I'm ready for all of it.
From where the RV Miskin then he called for some musk and said to his wife, mix it with some water one of the he one of the Rashi and sprinkle it around my bed. I want the maniacal to have the scent to have a beautiful set.
she says that I was just finishing sprinkling
and for either who occurred over the row who his soul had already left his body
*a Anna who not even Allah Faraci like he was very calmly sleeping on his bed.
The legend Sandman and farmaceutici Allah one departed from distant Yeah.
How long did San Mateo foster the LA one live?
Above Sydney is evil. Bharani says that he lived 350 years
it's a very long life.
Imam, Allah He Ali, the famous historian and scholar. He says I don't I'm not sure if I'm buying into the 350 year life.
Right? I mean, miracles are miracles things could happen. But then he begins to present counter arguments that there is this narration there is that narration for example, there's 111 narration of when Saudi Arabia will cost with the hola Juan came to visit him and he was crying you guys remember that anyway when semana foster with you alone was crying and he said to him doesn't make you happy that the Prophet was happy with you. So at that point, so modern Farsi to the Saudi who constantly Allah Juan, he used a very interesting phrase. He said PATA sodden for now you
The key about the feminie
the Why are you crying after you've lived 80 years in this world like you lived a good life, you lived a good life, you did some good things, you've made great contributions. Now, that you I have the narration that many years of age is a weaker one, but he says that he says that it gives us an indication that he may have been close to 100 around 80 ish. And then the question is, but then how did he meet all those people? How did he go through all these things and go on to live in Shama and then pass away in the heyday of with modern I found out about the Allah one.
So to that he says, What much more comedy he was while he was when he when he met he was a Salafi he was Sufi he didn't lead gen ed were a Shia a Mata Kadima Yun be OB Anna who later be more Amar wala haram. In fact, the Farakka water Hua Hadith, he said, the fact is that he was able to do all of that shows that he wasn't 100 years old. If you say he was 350 years old, how was he digging in the ground? You know, at the age of 300 300, date palm trees. You guys understand this? How was he participating in all these battles? If he's 300 years old, that isn't, that in itself proves his history, the life that he lived, that he was not like he's 2030 But he was still in a decent age. He
was at an age where people were strong and they were able to do things. Human beings will be I know who Lisa be Mamajuana Hiram Walker, the Farakka water who were who were harder than Allah, Allah who called him and hijas I wonder who are Barone Asenath and
it said, it's most likely probably about the time some modern fantasy with your loved one arrived in hijas. He was around 40 years of age.
He was around 40 years of age, that's most likely what it was. And then from there the rest of the timeline perfectly and adds up. So this is a story of Santa Monica Foster The hola Juan May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to learn and benefit and allow us to follow the footsteps of cinema and fantasy with the Allah one story full of so much sacrifice commitment to Allah, simplicity, love for others, a story of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala yet hoping Allah subhanho wa Taala he lived a noble life and he passed away a noble death, as it was elevate his MACOM and grant him the true companionship, companionship with the Prophet of Allah in Jannah or Salah Juan Asad him Hamid
Saramonic rahmatullah wa barakato.
